Try out your ideas by visualizing them in action.
Don't follow any advice, no matter how good, until you feel as deeply in your spirit as you think in your mind that the counsel is wise.
Modern science knows much about such conflicts. We call the mental state that engenders it "ambivalence": a collision between thought and feeling.
Your desires and true beliefs have a way of playing blindman's bluff. You must corner the inner facts. . . .
The key to most difficulties does not lie in the dilemmas themselves, but in our relation to them.
Enthusiasm is the best protection in any situation. Wholeheartedness is contagious. Give yourself, if you wish to get others.
Good humor isn't a trait of character, it is an art which requires practice.
Nature is at work. Character and destiny are her handiwork. She gives us love and hate, jealousy and reverence. All that is ours is the power to choose which impulse we shall follow.
