10 Thoughts of a Wise Man

attitude

  • “Happiness is not a matter of intensity but of balance, order, rhythm and harmony.” 
  • “Most of our obstacles would melt away if, instead of cowering before them, we should make up our minds to walk boldly through them.”
  • “When we are sure that we are on the right road there is no need to plan our journey too far ahead. No need to burden ourselves with doubts and fears as to the obstacles that may bar our progress. We cannot take more than one step at a time.”
  • “All men who have achieved great things have been great dreamers.”
  • “The greatest thing a man can do in this world, is to make the most possible out of the stuff that has been given him. This is success, and there is no other.”
  • “Success is not measured by what you accomplish but by the opposition you have encountered, and the courage with which you have maintained the struggle against overwhelming odds.”
  • “The universe is one great kindergarten. Everything that exists has brought with it its own peculiar lesson. The mountain teaches stability and grandeur; the ocean immensity and change. Forests, lakes, and rivers, clouds and winds, stars and flowers, stupendous glaciers and crystal snowflakes every form of animate or inanimate existence, leaves its impress upon our soul.”
  • “We cannot rise higher than our thought of ourselves.”
  • “Most obstacles melt away when we make up our minds to walk boldly through them.”
  • “There is no medicine like hope, no incentive so great, and no tonic so powerful as expectation of something tomorrow.”
Dr. Orison Swett Marden (1848–1924) was an American inspirational author who wrote about achieving success in life and founded SUCCESS magazine in 1897. His writings discuss common-sense principles and virtues that make for a well-rounded, successful life.
