Quote by Lydia M. Child
Belief in oneself is one of the most important bricks in building any successful venture.
This quote emphasizes the significance of self-belief in achieving success in any endeavor. Just like bricks serve as foundational elements in constructing a building, belief in oneself serves as an essential foundation for success. Without self-confidence and faith in one's abilities, it becomes difficult to overcome challenges, pursue goals, and persevere in the face of adversity. Sustaining a strong belief in oneself provides the motivation, resilience, and courage needed to overcome obstacles and build a successful venture. Hence, this quote highlights the critical role played by self-belief in the process of achieving success.
The danger of the past was that men became slaves. The danger of the future is that men may become robots. True enough, robots do not rebel. But given man's nature, robots cannot live and remain sane, they become Golems, they will destroy their world and themselves because they cannot stand any longer the boredom of a meaningless life.
The President can exercise no power which cannot be fairly and reasonably traced to some specific grant of power in the Federal Constitution or in an act of Congress passed in pursuance thereof. There is no undefined residuum of power which he can exercise because it seems to him to be in the public interest.
The basic principle of altruism is that man has no right to exist for his own sake, that service to others is the only justification of his existence, and that self-sacrifice is his highest moral duty, virtue and value. Do not confuse altruism with kindness, good will or respect for the rights of others. These are not primaries, but consequences, which, in fact, altruism makes impossible. The irreducible primary of altruism, the basic absolute, is self-sacrifice - which means: self-immolation, self-abnegation, self-denial, self-destruction - which means: the self as a standard of evil, the selfless as a standard of the good.
