Quote by Dorthea Brande
All that is necessary to break the spell of inertia and frustration is this: Act as if it were impossible to fail. That is the talisman, the formula, the command of right about face which turns us from failure to success.
This quote emphasizes the power of mindset in overcoming obstacles and achieving success. By adopting the belief that failure is not an option, one can break free from the grip of inertia and frustration. The idea of acting as if it were impossible to fail serves as a talisman, a magical object, that motivates individuals to take action and make a positive change. It suggests that by changing our perspective and approaching challenges with unwavering confidence, we can shift our course from failure to success.
That which is true must always remain true, though the applications may change greatly from generation to generation. It is the absence of such fundamental certainties, no doubt, that leads men into continual search for a satisfying religion, or that drives them away from their old religion.
You think of those kids out there. I say kids. I have seen them. They are the greatest. You see these bums, you know, blowing up the campuses. Listen, the boys that are on the college campuses today are the luckiest people in the world, going to the greatest universities, and here they are burning up the books, I mean storming around about this issueI mean you name itget rid of the war; there will be another one. Out there weve got kids who are just doing their duty. I have seen them. They stand tall, and they are proud. I am sure they are scared. I was when I was there. But when it really comes down to it, they stand up and, boy, you have to talk up to those men. And they are going to do fine; weve got to stand back of them.
