Reading

There is no remedy so easy as books, which if they do not give cheerfulness, at least restore quiet to the most troubled mind.
Lady Mary Montagu

The only things that are going to change you from where you are today to where you are going to be five years from now are the people you meet and the books you read.
Lou Holtz

Literature is my Utopia. Here I am not disfranchised. No barrier of the senses shuts me out from the sweet, gracious discourse of my book friends. They talk to me without embarrassment or awkwardness.
Helen Keller

Men of power have no time to read; yet the men who do not read are unfit for power.
Michael Foot

I try to make time for reading each night. In addition to the usual newspapers and magazines, I make it a priority to read at least one newsweekly from cover to cover. If I were to read only what intrigues me – say, the science and business sections – then I would finish the magazine the same person I was when I started. So I read it all.
Bill Gates

Prayer

We pray for silver, but God often gives us gold instead.
Martin Luther

We look upon prayer as a means for getting things for ourselves; the Bible idea of prayer is that we may get to know God Himself.
Oswald Chambers

The best disposition for praying is that of being desolate, forsaken, stripped of everything.
St. Augustine

If you want to be able to pray better, you must be able to pray more.
Anonymous

Prayer is a joy. Prayer is the sunshine of God’s love, prayer is hope of eternal happiness, prayer is the burning flame of God’s love for you and for me. Let us pray for each other, for this is the best way to love one another.
Mother Teresa

Prayer

It’s hard to dislike people for whom we pray.
H.L. Sidney Lear

Prayer is not only asking, but an attitude of mind which produces the atmosphere in which asking is perfectly natural.
Oswald Chambers

It may be that he can only sigh, stammer, and mutter. But as long as it is a request brought before God, God will hear it and understand it.
Karl Barth

The greatest tragedy is not an unanswered prayer, but an unoffered prayer.
Anonymous

I believe the old cliché, “God helps those who help themselves,” is not only misleading but often dead wrong. My most spectacular answers to prayers have come when I was so helpless, so out of control as to be able to do nothing at all for myself.

Leadership

With a determined effort any leader can develop some degree of charisma. Like good leadership, charisma starts with an enthusiastic, positive, joyful approach to life in general. This inner strength, when properly cultivated and expressed, strikes a chord in others, enabling a leader to bring out the best in them.
John Bahnsen

The truly successful businessman is essentially a dissenter, a rebel who is seldom if ever satisfied with the status quo.
J. Paul Getty

It’s a mark of real leadership to take the lead in getting to know people. Next time you are in a large group, observe something very significant: the most important person present is the one person most active in introducing himself.
David Schwartz

The man who is worthy of being a leader of men will never complain about the stupidity of his helpers, the ingratitude of mankind nor the inappreciation of the public. To meet them and overcome them and not to go down before them in disgust, discouragement or defeat – that is the final proof of power.
William Boetcker
