A Quote by Eric Hoffer on change, confidence, crisis, needs, preparation, radicals, self-confidence, and self-esteem

We can never really be prepared for that which is wholly new. We have to adjust ourselves, and every radical adjustment is a crisis in self-esteem; we undergo a test, we have to prove ourselves. It needs inordinate self-confidence to face drastic change without inner trembling.

Eric Hoffer (1902 - 1983)

A Quote by General Douglas MacArthur on confidence, despair, doubt, faith, fear, hope, idealism, life, mind, people, self-confidence, time, and youth

Youth is not entirely a time of life; it is a state of mind. Nobody grows old by merely living a number of years. People grow old by deserting their ideals. You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubts; as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear; as young as your hope, as old as your despair.

Douglas MacArthur (1880 - 1964)
