An interesting quote from Napolean Hill
This is a quote from his book Think And Grow Rich.. people have varying opinions on Hill and his lying about being an attorney and other things, but this book is the holy grail of what it takes to become successful..

quote:

To begin with, let us remember, all of us, that we live in a country where every law-abiding citizen enjoys freedom of thought and freedom of deed unequalled anywhere in the world . Most of us have never taken inventory of the advantages of this freedom. We have never compared our unlimited freedom with curtailed freedom in other countries.
Here we have freedom of thought, freedom in the choice and enjoyment of education, freedom in religion, freedom in politics, freedom in the choice of business, profession or occupation, freedom to accumulate and own without molestation all the property we can accumulate, freedom to choose our place of residence, freedom in marriage, freedom through equal opportunity to all races, freedom to travel from one state to another, freedom in our choice of foods, and freedom to aim for any station in life for which we have prepared ourselves, even for the presidency of the United States



In this chapter he goes on to talk about the positive effects of capitalism and how it has made America the fastest growing and wealthiest country in the world. As well as touching on "radicals, self-seeking politicans, racketeers, crooked labor leaders, and on occasion, religious leaders taking pot shots at 'Wall Street, the money changers and big business'." Basically denigrating the socialistic system of unions and government assistance.

If you haven't read this book, I suggest reading it, as it changed my outlook on life and gave me the tools I needed to transmute thought into its physical counterpart. It's amazing to read something written most 100 years ago that holds so much relevance and similarity to our present day situation.

re: An interesting quote from Napolean Hill
The chapter on decision where he talks about the Declaration of Independence is awesome.

A group of men locked in a room, deciding the fate of an entire continent, literally life or death. Pretty heavy shite.

Should be required reading for every person in the world, although it is a challenging read. I have read or listened to the entire book a dozen times and still don't fully grasp every concept.

Good find. Its definitely a tough read, one that will require a thesaurus at times haha. I found that listening to light classical music helped me tune in. And you're right,there are some concepts I still dont understand.
