How To Stop Worrying and Start Living by Dale Carnegie is a classic book with real-life stories that will encourage and inspire you. I have read How To Win Friends and Influence People 3 or 4 times and because of the recommendation of Jeffrey Gitomer, I decided to read the book.
Because I read a library book, I was not able to make notes in the book and so I turned several pages over that had content that I wanted to share.
"We and God have business with each other; and in opening ourselves to His influence, our deepest destiny is fulfilled." - William James
"Why does religious faith bring us such peace and calm and fortitude? I'll let William James answer that. He says: The turbulent billows of the fretful surface leave the deep parts of the ocean undisturbed; and to him who has a hold on vaster and more permanent realities; the hourly vicissitudes of his personal destiny seem relatively insignificant things. The really religious person is accordingly unshakeable and full of equanimity, and calmly ready for any duty that the day may bring forth."
The Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace:
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.
O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
"Elbert Hubbard said: "Every man is a damn fool for at least five minutes every day. Wisdom consists in not exceeding that limit."
"Psychiatrists declare that most of our fatigue derives from our mental and emotional attitudes.
