Neither worse then or better is a thing made by being praised.
Never let the future disturb you. You will meet it, if you have to, with the same weapons of reason which today arm you against the present.
Accept whatever comes to you woven in the pattern of your destiny, for what could more aptly fit your needs?
The first rule is to keep an untroubled spirit. The second is to look things in the face and know them for what they are.
You have power over your mind – not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.
