Life Is Too Short To Be Little

"Disraeli said Life is too short to be little."

“Often we allow ourselves to be upset by small things we should despise and forget. ... Here we are on this earth, with only a few more decades to live, and we lose many irreplaceable hours brooding over grievances that, in a year's time, will be forgotten by us and by everybody."

"No, let us devote our life to worth-while actions and feelings, to great thoughts, real affections and enduring undertakings.”  - Benjamin Disraeli 






Freedom from Negative Thinking

Florence Scovel Shin

"Moses had orders from the Lord to deliver his people from bondage ‐ "Moses and Aaron went in and told Pharaoh ‐‐ Thus saith the Lord God of Israel, Let my people go, that they may hold a feast unto me in the wilderness." "

"He not only refused to let them go, but told them he would make their tasks even more difficult: they must make bricks without straw being provided for them."

"It was impossible to make bricks without straw. The Children of Israel were completely crushed by Pharaoh, they were beaten for not producing the bricks."

"Then came the message from Jehovah. "Go therefore now, and work; for there shall no straw be given you, yet shall ye deliver the tale (number) of bricks.""

"Working with Spiritual Law the Israelite's could make bricks without straw, which means to accomplish the seemingly impossible. How often in life people are confronted with this situation."

He is an example of a friend...

"My friend's father called luxuries "plunder." He would say, "Don't bring home any plunder."

So she lived a colorless life without a "Winged Victory" on her bureau or "Whistler's Mother on the wall.

He would say often to my friend and her mother, "When I die, you'll both be well off."

One day someone said to Lettie, "When are you going abroad?" (all art students went abroad.) She replied, cheerfully, "Not 'till Papa dies."

So people always look forward to being free from lack and oppression.

Let us now free ourselves from the tyrants of negative thinking.

We have been slaves to doubts, fears and apprehension and let us be delivered as Moses delivered the Children of Israel and come out of the Land of Egypt, out of the House of Bondage." - Florence Scovel Shinn / The Secrete Door To Success
