The vegetable life does not content itself with casting from the flower or the tree a single seed, but it fills the air and earth with a prodigality of seeds, that, if thousands perish, thousands may plant themselves, that hundreds may come up, that tens may live to maturity;  that, at least one may replace the parent.

There is no chance and anarchy in the universe.  All is system and gradation.  Every god is there sitting in his sphere.
    —    Ralph Waldo Emerson
[“When I works, I works hard.
When I sits, I sits loose.
And when I thinks, I falls asleep.
… I always thought this was a Satchel Paige quote, but I’ve not been able to find any direct attribution.  I welcome any reader’s input.    —    kmab]

The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, not the kindly smile, nor the joy of companionship;  it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when you discover that someone else believes in you and is willing to trust you with a friendship.

Whatever you do, you need courage.  Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong.  There are always difficulties arising that tempt you to believe your critics are right.  To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires some of the same courage that a soldier needs.  Peace has its victories, but it takes brave men and women to win them.

The good news is that the moment you decide that what you know is more important than what you have been taught to believe, you will have shifted gears in your quest for abundance.  Success comes from within, not from without.
