If anything can help cope with the world today, developing a sense of self-reliance is up there.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
“You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you.” —Walt Disney
“Change your thoughts and you change your world.” —Norman Vincent Peale
The universe has no restrictions. You place restrictions on the universe with your expectations.
Someone whose opinions change freely with experience is clearly someone who is not guided by dogma or the expectations of others, but instead by a clear internal compass of inquiry and honesty.
