“The individual who is trying to be right has got be careful that he is not infected by a common disillusionment. He cannot afford to say everything is wrong and mean it. He’s got to hold inside himself a realization that principle is the basic value. And that regardless of what happens in the world, he cannot lose sight of perfecting his own energy resources because it might just so happen that he could be one of those who could help to change the course of history.
In other words disillusionment, despair, discouragement, bitterness, anger, frustration, all these do nothing to the person against whom they are turned but do everything to the individual who uses them. Therefore no matter what we read in the paper, no matter what comes to us over the radio or in television the individual must retain within himself the realization that there is a great good behind everything. And that that great good will succeed and that this magnetic field we’re talking about, which extends not only though this solar system but through the entire galaxy decrees within itself by its own immutable process that evil can never win.”
