A Quote by Orison Swett Marden on cheerfulness, earth, and nature

How true it is that, if we are cheerful and contented, all nature smiles, the air seems more balmy, the sky clearer, the earth has a brighter green. . . the flowers are more fragrant. . . and the sun, moon, and stars all appear more beautiful, and seem to rejoice with us.

A Quote by Orison Swett Marden on ambition, angels, character, discipline, fame, humility, nature, possibility, pride, and wealth

The sculptor will chip off all unnecessary material to set free the angel. Nature will chip and pound us remorselessly to bring out our possibilities. She will strip us of wealth, humble our pride, humiliate our ambition, let us down from the ladder of fame, will discipline us in a thousand ways, if she can develop a little character. Everything must give way to that. Wealth is nothing, position is nothing, fame is nothing, manhood is everything.
