This book is written to me, and about me.

Knowledge and Experience do not necessarily speak the same language. But isn’t the knowledge that comes from experience more valuable that the knowledge that doesn’t?” 

“ There us more to knowing than just being correct.” 

“It’s just that there is something more, and that something more is what life is really about.”

“Everything has it’s own place and function. That applies to people, although many don’t seem to realize it, stuck as that are in the wrong job, the wrong marriage, or the wrong house. When you know and respect your own Inner Nature, you know where you belong. You also know where you don’t belong. One man’s food is often another man’s poison, and what is glamorous and exciting to some can be a dangerous trap to others.”

“The wise know their limitations; the foolish do not.”

“Once you face and understand your limitations, you can work with them, instead of having them work agains you and get in you way, which is what they do when you ignore them, whether you realize it or not. And then you will find that, in many cases, your limitations can be your strengths.” 

“The way of Self-Reliance starts with the recognizing who we are, what we’ve got to work with, and what works best for us.”

“Sooner or later, we are bound to discover some things about ourselves that we don’t like. But once we see they’re there, we can decide what we want to do with them. Do we want to get rid of time completely, change them into other things, or use them in beneficial ways?”

“So rather than work against ourselves, all we need to do in many cases is point our weaknesses or unpleasant tendencies in a different direction than we have been.”

   Sometimes words you read are exactly what you need to hear. This book is amazing.. I’m seriously obsessed. I can tell it’s going to be that one book that you come across in your life that you read and re-read again and again.. So much that I am learning.. LOVE IT :)
