"A seed, dropped into the ground, springs into activity, and in the act of living produces a hundred more seeds; life, by living, multiplies itself. It is forever becoming More; it must do so, if it continues to be at all."
"The universe desires you to have everything you want to have. Nature is friendly to your plans. Everything is naturally for you. Make up your mind this is true. It is essential, however, that your purpose should harmonize with the purpose that is All. You must want real life, not mere pleasure of sensual gratification. Life is the performance of function; and the individual really lives only when he performs every function, physical, mental, and spiritual, of which he is capable, without excess in any."
