"[Individualism, envy and jealousy:] Persons of high self-esteem are not driven to make themselves superior to others; they do not seek to prove their value by measuring themselves against a comparative standard. Their joy is being who they are, not in being better than someone else [except perhaps being better than they were in the past]." - Nathaniel Branden

[Quote No.51287] Need Area: Friends > General
"[War propaganda:] The receptivity of the great masses is very limited, their intelligence is small, but their power of forgetting is enormous. In consequence of these facts, all effective propaganda must be limited to a very few points and must harp on these in slogans until the last member of the public understands what you want him to understand by your slogan. As soon as you sacrifice this slogan and try to be many-sided, the effect will piddle away, for the crowd can neither digest nor retain the material offered. In this way the result is weakened and in the end entirely cancelled out. " - Adolf Hilter
Leader of the National Socialist German Workers' Party - Nazi's. Quote from his book, 'Mein Kampf' (1926), Chapter 6, 'War Propaganda'.

"Collectivism is a form of anthropomorphism. It attempts to see a group of individuals as having a single identity similar to a person. ...

"When you believe in individual freedom, then you believe people should make their own choices which obviously will not all be the same. Therefore freedom creates diversity. So a belief in freedom to be sincere must be accompanied by a belief in allowing diversity and a tolerance of differences, with the only restriction being that that freedom [from force or fraud] and tolerance is reciprocated [goes both ways] and does not impinge on another's equal right to pursue their own choices and happiness." - Seymour@imagi-natives.com

[Quote No.51533] Need Area: Friends > General
"[A story - with a message about the 'Golden Rule' of ethics, namely treating others as you would like to be treated: in the form of ‘the long spoons allegory’. This story in various forms is found in the cultures of BUDDHISTS, CHRISTIANS, HINDUS, JEWS and ORIENTALS:] I once ascended to the firmaments. I first went to see Hell and the sight was horrifying. Row after row of tables were laden with platters of sumptuous food, yet the people seated around the tables were pale and emaciated, moaning in hunger. As I came closer, I understood their predicament. Every person held a full spoon, but both arms were splinted with wooden slats so he could not bend either elbow to bring the food to his mouth. It broke my heart to hear the tortured groans of these poor people as they held their food so near but could not consume it. Next I went to visit Heaven. I was surprised to see the same setting I had witnessed in Hell – row after row of long tables laden with food. But in contrast to Hell, the people here in Heaven were sitting contentedly talking with each other, obviously sated from their sumptuous meal. As I came closer, I was amazed to discover that here, too, each person had his arms splinted on wooden slats that prevented him from bending his elbows. How, then, did they manage to eat? As I watched, a man picked up his spoon and dug it into the dish before him. Then he stretched across the table and fed the person across from him! The recipient of this kindness thanked him and returned the favor by leaning across the table to feed his benefactor. I suddenly understood. Heaven and Hell offer the same circumstances and conditions. The critical difference is in the way the people treat each other. I ran back to Hell to share this solution with the poor souls trapped there. I whispered in the ear of one starving man, 'You do not have to go hungry. Use your spoon to feed your neighbor, and he will surely return the favor and feed you.' 'You expect me to feed the detestable man sitting across the table?' said the man angrily. 'I would rather starve than give him the pleasure of eating!' I then understood God's wisdom in choosing who is worthy to go to Heaven and who deserves to go to Hell. " - Rabbi Haim of Romshishok
He was an itinerant preacher. He travelled from town to town delivering religious sermons that stressed the importance of respect for one's fellow man. He often began his talks with the story... ‘Narrative of the allegory’. Also described in a similar fashion in Lord, Shiva. ‘Hindu parable: A Long Handled spoon’, Horn, Nils. ‘Yoga Basic Knowledge and Exercises’, pp. 30, Peseschkian, Nossrat (1986). ‘Oriental stories as tools in psychotherapy’. Springer-Verlag. pp. 26, Tietze, Harald W. ‘Happyology’. The Pope tells the story of the long spoons. pp. 61, Swami, Vinod (1992). ‘Conflict Mediation Across Cultures’.] [Refer http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allegory_of_the_long_spoons , http://www.goldenrule4everyone.com/ ]

"[A story - with a message about independence, individual responsibility and self-reliance:] The Flood - A flood was threatening a small town and everyone was leaving for safety except one man who said, 'God will save me. I have faith.' As the water level rose a jeep came to rescue him, the man refused, saying 'God will save me. I have faith.' As the water level rose further, he went up to the second storey, and a boat came to help him. Again he refused to go, saying, 'God will save me. I have faith.' The water kept rising and the man climbed on to the roof. A helicopter came to rescue him, but he said, 'God will save me. I have faith.' Well, finally he drowned. When he reached his Maker he angrily asked, 'I had complete faith in you. Why did you ignore my prayers and let me drown?' The Lord replied, 'Who do you think sent you the jeep, the boat, and the helicopter?' It takes accepting responsibility, preparing, planning and taking action yourself rather than waiting, wondering or wishing for luck, others or God to help you, to accomplish anything in life." - Unknown

"[A story - with a message about reciprocity, ethics, morality and the Golden Rule, specifically we get back what we give.] Life is an echo - A Mountain Story - A son and his father were walking on the mountains. Suddenly, his son falls, hurts himself and screams: 'AAAhhhhhhhhhhh!!!' To his surprise, he hears the voice repeating, somewhere in the mountain: 'AAAhhhhhhhhhhh!!!' Curious, he yells: 'Who are you?' He receives the answer: 'Who are you?' And then he screams to the mountain: 'I admire you!' The voice answers: 'I admire you!' Angered at the response, he screams: 'Coward!' He receives the answer: 'Coward!' He looks to his father and asks: 'What's going on?' The father smiles and says: 'My son, pay attention.' Again the man screams: 'You are a champion!' The voice answers: 'You are a champion!' The boy is surprised, but does not understand. Then the father explains: 'People call this ECHO, but really this is LIFE. It gives you back everything you say or do. Our life is simply a reflection of our actions. If you want more love in the world, create more love in your heart. If you want more competence in your team, improve your competence. This relationship applies to everything, in all aspects of life; Life will REFLECT back everything you have given to it.'

"[A story - with a message about win-win co-operation and helping each other:] - The Parable of the Long Knives, Forks and Spoons. A man died and St. Peter asked him if he would like to go to heaven or hell. The man asked if he could see both before deciding. St. Peter took him to hell first and the man saw a big hall with a long table, lots of food on it and music playing. He also saw rows of people with pale, sad faces. They looked starved and there was no laughter. And he observed one more thing. Their hands were tied to four-foot knives, forks and spoons and they were trying to get the food from the center of the table to put into their mouths. But they couldn't. Then, he went to see heaven. There he saw a big hall with a long table, with lots of food on the table and music playing. He noticed rows of people on both sides of the table with their hands tied to four-foot knives, forks and spoons also. But he observed there was something different here. People were laughing and were well-fed and healthy-looking. He noticed that they were feeding one another across the table. The result was happiness, prosperity, enjoyment, and gratification because they were not thinking of themselves alone! The same is true of our lives." - Unknown

"[A story - with a message about reciprocity and getting what we give.] A Pound of Butter - There was a farmer who sold a pound of butter to the baker. One day the baker decided to weigh the butter to see if he was getting a pound and he found that he was not. This angered him and he took the farmer to court. The judge asked the farmer if he was using any measure. The farmer replied, 'I am your Honor.' The judge asked, 'How do you weigh the butter?' The farmer replied 'Your Honor, long before the baker started buying butter from me, I have been buying a pound loaf of bread from him. Every day when the baker brings the bread, I put it on the scale and give him the same weight in butter. Therefore if anyone is to be blamed, if the butter is less than a pound, it is the baker.' What is the moral of the story? We get back in life what we give to others!!!" - Unknown

"[A story - with a message about empathy:] - Puppies for Sale - A store owner was tacking a sign above his door that read ‘Puppies For Sale.’ Signs like that have a way of attracting small children and sure enough, a little boy appeared under the store owner's sign. ‘How much are you going to sell the puppies for?’ he asked. The store owner replied, ‘Anywhere from $30 to $50.’ The little boy reached in his pocket and pulled out some change. ‘I have $2.37,’ he said. ‘Can I please look at them?’ The store smiled and whistled and out of the kennel came Lady, who ran down the aisle of his store followed by five teeny, tiny balls of fur. One puppy was lagging considerably behind. Immediately the little boy singled out the lagging, limping puppy and said, ‘What's wrong with that little dog?’ The store owner explained that the veterinarian had examined the little puppy and had discovered it didn't have a hip socket. It would always limp. It would always be lame. The little boy became excited. ‘That is the little puppy that I want to buy.’ The store owner said, ‘No, you don't want to buy that little dog. If you really want him, I'll just give him to you.’ The little boy got quite upset. He looked straight into the store owner's eyes, pointing his finger, and said, ‘I don't want you to give him to me. That little dog is worth every bit as much as all the other dogs and I'll pay full price. In fact, I'll give you $2.37 now, and 50 cents a month until I have him paid for.’ The store owner countered, ‘You really don't want to buy this little dog. He is never going to be able to run and jump and play with you like the other puppies.’ To this, the little boy reached down and rolled up his pant leg to reveal a badly twisted, crippled left leg supported by a big metal brace. He looked up at the store owner and softly replied, ‘Well, I don't run so well myself, and the little puppy will need someone who understands!’ " - Dan Clark

"[A story - with a message about forgiveness and gratitude:] In Sand and In Stone - A story tells that two friends were walking through the desert. During some point of the journey they had an argument, and one friend slapped the other one in the face. The one who got slapped was hurt, but without saying anything, wrote in the sand: ‘TODAY MY BEST FRIEND SLAPPED ME IN THE FACE.’ They kept on walking until they found an oasis, where they decided to take a bath. The one, who had been slapped, got stuck in the mire and started drowning, but the friend saved him. After the friend recovered from the near drowning, he wrote on a stone: ‘TODAY MY BEST FRIEND SAVED MY LIFE.’ The friend who had slapped and saved his best friend asked him, ‘After I hurt you, you wrote in the sand and now, you write on a stone, why?’ The other friend replied: ‘When someone hurts us, we should write it down in sand where winds of forgiveness can erase it away. But, when someone does something good for us, we must engrave it in stone where no wind can ever erase it.’ " - Unknown

[Quote No.51603] Need Area: Friends > General
"[A story - with a message about love:] Love and Time - Once upon a time, there was an island where all the feelings lived: Happiness, Sadness, Knowledge, and all of the others, including Love. One day it was announced to the feelings that the island would sink, so all constructed boats and left, except for Love. Love was the only one who stayed. Love wanted to hold out until the last possible moment. When the island had almost sunk, Love decided to ask for help. Richness was passing by Love in a grand boat. Love said, ‘Richness, can you take me with you?’ Richness answered, ‘No, I can’t. There is a lot of gold and silver in my boat. There is no place here for you.’ Love decided to ask Vanity who was also passing by in a beautiful vessel. ‘Vanity, please help me!’ ‘I can’t help you, Love. You are all wet and might damage my boat,’ Vanity answered. Sadness was close by so Love asked, ‘Sadness, let me go with you.’ ‘Oh...Love, I am so sad that I need to be by myself!’ Happiness passed by Love, too, but she was so happy that she did not even hear when Love called her. Suddenly, there was a voice, ‘Come, Love, I will take you.’ It was an elder. So blessed and overjoyed, Love even forgot to ask the elder where they were going. When they arrived at dry land, the elder went her own way. Realizing how much was owed the elder, Love asked Knowledge, another elder, ‘Who Helped me?’ ‘It was Time,’ Knowledge answered. ‘Time?’ asked Love. ‘But why did Time help me?’ Knowledge smiled with deep wisdom and answered, ‘Because only Time is capable of understanding how valuable Love is.’ " - Unknown

"DESPITE REASONS NOT TO BE GOOD - BE YOUR BEST SELF AND SET AN EXAMPLE: ---- People are unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered... LOVE THEM ANYWAY. ---- If you do good, people accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives... DO GOOD ANYWAY. ---- If you are successful, you win false and true enemies... SUCCEED ANYWAY. ---- The good you do will be forgotten tomorrow... DO GOOD ANYWAY. ---- Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable... BE HONEST AND FRANK ANYWAY. ---- What you spent years building may be destroyed overnight... BUILD ANYWAY. ---- People really need help but may attack you if you help them... HELP PEOPLE ANYWAY. ---- Give the world the best you have and you'll get kicked in the teeth... GIVE THE WORLD THE BEST YOU'VE GOT ANYWAY!!!" - Unknown

"[A story - with a message: even if you can’t do it all, or even a lot, at least do what you can to help others:] The Starfish - There was a man taking a morning walk at or the beach. He saw that along with the morning tide came hundreds of starfish and when the tide receded, they were left behind and with the morning sun rays, they would die. The tide was fresh and the starfish were alive. The man took a few steps, picked one and threw it into the water. He did that repeatedly. Right behind him there was another person who couldn't understand what this man was doing. He caught up with him and asked, ‘What are you doing? There are hundreds of starfish. How many can you help? What difference does it make?’ This man did not reply, took two more steps, picked up another one, threw it into the water, and said, ‘It makes a difference to this one!’ " - Unknown

[Quote No.51634] Need Area: Friends > General
"When a man spends his own money to buy something for himself, he is very careful about how much he spends and how he spends it. When a man spends his own money to buy something for someone else, he is still very careful about how much he spends, but somewhat less what he spends it on. When a man spends someone else's money to buy something for himself, he is very careful about what he buys, but doesn't care at all how much he spends. And when a man spends someone else's money on someone else, he doesn't care how much he spends or what he spends it on. And that's government for you. [That is also why its budget and power must be strictly controlled and overseen by the people]." - Milton Friedman
Economist and Nobel Laureate

"[Freedom and individualism are important for the individual and society:] What humans can be, they must be. They must be true to their own nature! This need we may call self-actualization. ...He becomes in these episodes more truly himself, more perfectly actualizing his potentialities, closer to the core of his Being, more fully human. " - Abraham Maslow
(1908 – 1970), a highly respected American professor of psychology at Brandeis University, Brooklyn College, New School for Social Research and Columbia University, famous for creating 'Maslow's hierarchy of needs'. Please note that Abraham Maslow's quotes are found within the body of this excellent text, from the Personality and Consciousness website, which is included to give greater meaning to these important insights.

"A key difference between big government and small government is who does what for whom: big government is like the bully that forcefully takes fish from the successful fisherman and gives it to the hungry and feeds them for a day but then must repeat this coercive theft each day; small government is like the wise teacher who teaches the hungry to fish so they can feed themselves each day." - Unknown
