We’re dreamers, dreaming realities.
Your believing or not believing in karma has no effect on its existence, nor on its consequences to you. Just as a refusal to believe in the ocean would not prevent you from drowning.
When the time is up for maturation of karma, it automatically comes into effect.
Karma is a universal law of cause and effect. You reap what you sow.
When you create reality through the eyes of others, you build Karma which did not suppose to be yours.
To arrive at a contradiction is to confess an error in one’s thinking; to maintain a contradiction is to abdicate one’s mind and to evict oneself from the realm of reality.
Just as man can’t exist without his body, so no rights can exist without the right to translate one’s rights into reality, to think, to work and keep the results, which means: the right of property.
If you want to know your true opinion of someone, watch the effect produced in you by the first sight of a letter from him.
More important than innate disposition, objective experience, and environment is the subjective evaluation of these. Furthermore, this evaluation stands in a certain, often strange, relation to reality.
Cynical realism is the intelligent man’s best excuse for doing nothing in an intolerable situation.
In the future I’m going to devote less time to sentimentality and more time to reality.
Dreams, though, are cheap, and the real task comes when you start putting in place the steps needed to make those dreams a reality.
