A Quote by Aristotle on difficulty, failure, reason, and success

It is possible to fail in many ways . . . while to succeed is possible only in one way (for which reason also one is easy and the other difficult - to miss the mark easy, to hit it difficult).

Aristotle (384 - 322 BC)

A Quote by Anne Rix Miltz on belief, mind, neighbors, prosperity, richness, sacrifice, success, thought, wealth, and world

The old thought that one cannot be rich except at the expense of his neighbor, must pass away. True prosperity adds to the richness of the whole world, such as that of the man who makes two trees grow where only one grew before. The parasitical belief in prosperity as coming by the sacrifices of others has no place in the mind that thinks true. "My benefit is your benefit, your success is my success," should be the basis of all our wealth.
