Dorothea Brande Quotes:
To guarantee success, act as if it were impossible to fail.
Act boldly and unseen forces will come to your aid.
Old habits are strong and jealous.
"I expect to pass through life but once.
If therefore, there be any kindness I can show,
or any good thing I can do for any fellow being,
let me do it now, and not defer or neglect it, as I shall not pass this way again"
~ Stephen Grellet
"Faith and Fear Share The Same Definition.
Believing that what you cannot see will surely come to pass.
Faith Attracts The Positive while fear attracts the negative."
