Author Quotes

Without goals, and plans to reach them, you are like a ship that has set sail with no destination.

First you write down your goal; your second job is to break down your goal into a series of steps, beginning with steps which are absurdly easy.

Some people, in working toward a goal, find themselves seized by inertia when it comes time for action. If this should happen to you, despite the small graduated steps, then it is time to reexamine your goal. Consider how important it actually is and then either discard the goal and replace it with a more suitable one or continue the steps with a renewed sense of the value of achieving it.

All finite things have their roots in the infinite, and if you wish to understand life at all, you cannot tear out its context. And that context, astounding even to bodily eyes, is the heaven of stars and the incredible procession of the great galaxies.

To understand any living thing, you must, so to say, creep within and feel the beating of its heart.
