Today’s Positive Thought

Circles   Today’s Positive Thought is by Henry James.

“Live all you can: it’s a mistake not to.  It doesn’t so much matter what you do in particular, so long as you have your life.  If you haven’t  had that what have you had?”

Today’s Positive Thought

Today’s Positive Thought is by George Bernard Shaw.

“Life is no brief candle to me.  It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.”

The Spirit Of It

The following quote , Entering Into The Spirit Of It, is by Thomas Troward from his book, The Hidden Power. 

“Entering into the spirit of it.”  What a common expression!  And yet how much it really means, how absolutely everything.  We enter into the spirit of an undertaking, into the spirit of a movement, into the spirit of an author, even into the spirit of a game; and it makes all the difference both to us and to that which we enter.  A game without any spirit is a poor affair; and association in which there is no spirit falls to pieces; and a spiritless undertaking is sure to be a failure.  On the other hand, the book which is meaningless to the unsympathising reader is full of life and suggestion to the one who enters into the spirit of the writer; the man who enters into the spirit of the music finds a spring of refreshment in some fine recital which is entirely missed by the cold critic who comes only to judge according to the standard of a rigid rule; and so on in every case that we can think of.  If we do not enter the spirit of a thing, it has no invigorating effect upon us, and we regard it as dull, insipid and worthless.  This is dour everyday experience, and these are the words in which we express it.  And the words are well chosen.  They show our intuitive recognition of the spirit as the fundamental reality in everything, however small or however great.  Let us be right as to the spirit of a thing, and everything else will successfully follow.

Monday Thought

   Monday Thought is by Og Mandino from his book, The Greatest Salesman In The World.

“Within me burns a flame which has been passed from generations uncounted and its heat is a constant irritation to my spirit to become better than I am, and I will.  I will fan this flame of dissatisfaction and proclaim my uniqueness to the world.”
