Hope and fear are both phantoms that arise from thinking of the self. When we don't see the self as self, what do we have to fear? See the world as your self. Have faith in the way things are. Love the world as your self; then you can care for all things." - Laozi

"Failure is easy to measure. Failure is an event.Harder to measure is insignificance. A nonevent.

"Failure is easy to measure. Failure is an event.Harder to measure is insignificance. A nonevent.

One day, when you are looking, it's not looking, no one is.

"Accordingly, France Had Voltaire, and his school of negative thinkers, and England (or rather Scotland) had the profoundest negative thinker on record, David Hume: a man, the peculiarities of whose mind qualified him to detect failure of proof, and want of logical consistency, at a depth which French skeptics, with their comparatively feeble powers of analysis and abstractions stop far short of, and which German subtlety alone could thoroughly appreciate, or hope to rival." - John Stuart Mill

"If we assume that the purpose of the economy is to serve and improve the welfare of the entire body of citizens, the U.S. model has clearly been a major failure.

Herman

"With every effort, I learned a lot. With every mistake and failure, not only mine, but of those around me, I learned what not to do.

I had more than a healthy dose of fear, and an unlimited amount of hope, and more importantly, no limit on time and effort." - Mark Cuban

"There are moments that define a person's whole life. Moments in which everything they are and everything they may possibly become balance on a single decision. Life and death, hope and despair, victory and failure teeter precariously on the decision made at that moment. These are moments ungoverned by happenstance, untroubled by luck. These are the moments in which a person earns the right to live, or not." - Jonathan Maberry

"I love you, Minerva. I love that you believe in me no matter what. I love how you take whatever you see and distill it into your books.

And even worse, I never asked her what frightened me the most: Why had she given up hope?" - Amy Tan

"No matter what the storm clouds bring, you can face your pain with courage and hope. For two thousand years ago-six hours, one Friday-Christ firmly planted in bedrock three solid anchor points that we can all cling to. For the heart scarred with futility, that Friday holds purpose. For the life blackened with failure, that Friday holds forgiveness. And for the soul looking into the tunnel of death, that Friday holds deliverance." - Max Lucado

"The hope you feel when you are in love is not necessarily for anything in particular. Love brings something inside you to life. Perhaps it is just the full dimensionality of your own capacity to feel that returns. In this state you think no impediment can be large enough to interrupt your passion. The feeling spills beyond the object of your love to color the whole world. The mood is not unlike the mood of revolutionaries in the first blush of victory, at the dawn of hope. Anything seems possible. And in the event of failure, it will be this taste of possibility that makes disillusion bitter." - Susan Griffin
