Confidence is directness and courage in meeting the facts of life.
Luck, bad if not good, will always be with us. But it has a way of favoring the intelligent and showing its back to the stupid.
Intellectually, religious emotions are not creative but conservative. They attach themselves readily to the current view of the world and consecrate it.
Every thinker puts some portion of an apparently stable world in peril.
Anyone who has begun to think places some portion of the world in jeopardy.
To find out what one is fitted to do and to secure an opportunity to do it is the key to happiness.
We only think when we are confronted with a problem.
We cannot seek or attain health, wealth, learning, justice or kindness in general. Action is always specific, concrete, individualized, unique.
