November Words of Wisdom

There is no difference between communism and socialism, except in the means of achieving the same ultimate end: communism proposes to enslave men by force, socialism - by vote. It is merely the difference between murder and suicide. --Ayn Rand

We, the American people, are not each other's enemies. The enemies are those people behind the curtain jerking everybody's chains and trying to divide us up by age, by race, by income. --Dr. Ben Carson

Listen to the whisper of your soul, the universe and your faith, not the whining taunts or demands of random people. --Brendon Burchard

I like joy. I want to be joyous. I want to smile and I want to make people laugh. I LOVE to laugh. It's the only way to live. --Doris Day

Whatever you're working on, finish it. Commit the time. Ideas are actually the easy part of writing, and it happens to all of us - we get 10,000 or 20,000 words into a book and then have a great idea for something else...Almost every great idea can wait. What matters is that you finish the story or novel you're writing now.  --Joseph Finder

It's not that conservatives don't care. We do. We just have different answers than liberals do. It's a difference of the mind, not the heart. --Tom Selleck

High performers cultivate joy by how they think, what they focus on, and how they engage in and reflect on their days. It's a choice. --Brendon Burchard

Self-control is strength. Calmness is mastery. You have to get to a point where your mood doesn't shift based on the insignificant actions of someone else. Don't allow others to control the direction of your life. Don't allow your emotions to overpower your intelligence. --Unknown

Every writer...has certain special loves, certain special hang-ups. In my case, it's a hunger to be young again. A desperate hunger to go back to where it all began. I think you'll see this as a running thread through all the things that I write. --Rod Serling

The PC Police are shooting first and asking questions later. --A.J. Benza

Believe in your ability to figure things out. With enough time, effort, and discipline, you will learn and grow and achieve. You will bring your art and mission and dreams to fruition. Trust in yourself. --Brendon Burchard
