The outer world of circumstance shapes itself to the inner world of thought, and both pleasant and unpleasant external conditions are factors which make for the ultimate good of the individual. As the reaper of his own harvest, man learns both by suffering and bliss.

Men are anxious to improve their circumstances, but are unwilling to improve themselves. 

Even the man whose sole object is to acquire wealth must be prepared to make great personal sacrifices before he can accomplish his object.
