abundance

All prosperity begins in the mind and
is dependent only upon the full use
of our creative imagination.


Ruth Ross

   

Fate often puts all the material for happiness and prosperity into one's hands just to see how miserable one can make oneself with them.

Don Marquis

      
When I chased after money, I never had enough.  When I got my life on purpose and focused on giving of myself and everything that arrived into my life, then I was prosperous.

Wayne Dyer


Prosperity depends more on wanting what you have than having what you want.

Geoffrey F. Abert
  
If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.

Anne Bradstreet
   

Human prosperity never rests but always craves more, till blown up with pride it totters and falls.  From the opulent mansions pointed at by all passers-by none warns it away, none cries, "Let no more riches enter!"

Aeschylus

    

 Everything in the world may be endured except continual prosperity.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

The word prosperity comes from the Latin root which literally translates
“according to hope” or “to go forward hopefully.” Thus it is not so much
a condition in life as it is an attitude toward life. The truly prosperous
person is one who is experiencing what Jesus referred to as the life
more abundant.  Prosperity is a way of living and thinking—not just
money or things.  Poverty is a way of living and thinking—not just a lack of
money or things.  Considered in the broadest sense, prosperity is “spiritual
well-being.” This involves the whole experience of healing life, satisfying
love, abiding peace and harmony … a whole creature in a whole universe.

Eric Butterworth

     

We've got the most prosperous culture in human history and we've
also got the biggest spiritual hole in human history.  People are saying, "I
can't fill the hole with money.  I can't fill it with alcohol, or drugs, or sex,
so what do I need to fill it with?"

Mark Victor Hansen

    

The old thought that one cannot be rich except at the expense of his
or her neighbor, must pass away.  True prosperity adds to the richness
of the whole world, such as that of the person who makes two trees grow
where only one grew before.  The parasitical belief in prosperity as
coming by the sacrifices of others has no place in the mind that
thinks true.  My benefit is your benefit, your success
is my success, should be the basis of all our wealth.

Anne Rix Miltz

abundance

One is not rightly conditioned until one is a happy, healthy, and
prosperous being; and happiness, health, and prosperity are the result
of a harmonious adjustment of the inner with the
outer of the person with his or her surroundings.

James Allen
   

It's God's will for you to live in prosperity instead of poverty.
It's God's will for you to pay your bills and not be in debt.

Joel Osteen

Prosperity is the touchstone of virtue; for it is less difficult
to bear misfortunes than to remain uncorrupted by pleasure.

Tacitus
   

Prosperity is only an instrument to be used, not a deity to be worshipped.

Calvin Coolidge

   
   

There cannot be a sense of abundance or the experience of prosperity
without appreciation.  You cannot find beauty unless you appreciate beauty.
You cannot find friendship unless you appreciate others.  You cannot find
love unless you appreciate loving and being loved.
If you wish abundance, appreciate life.

William R. Miller

   
The human race has had long experience and a fine tradition
in surviving adversity.  But we now face a task for which we
have little experience, the task of surviving prosperity.

Alan Gregg
   

When you are able to shift your inner awareness to how you can serve
others, and when you make this the central focus of your life, you
will then be in a position to know true miracles
in your progress toward prosperity.

Wayne Dyer

We should not forget that it will be just as important to our
descendants to be prosperous in their time as it is to us
to be prosperous in our time.

Theodore Roosevelt
   

Prosperity suits some people, and they blossom best in a glow of sunshine;
others need the shade, and are the sweeter for a touch of frost.

Louisa May Alcott
Jo's Boys

   

Ultimate prosperity is one's value within. It takes a person of depth, morality,
and charm to be envied yet without a sign of wealth or romance. A passion
to prove such inner worth is one's permission to achieve whatever one desires.

Criss Jami

The danger of prosperity is that it encourages a false independence.

William Barclay
   

My prosperity is closely linked to the prosperity of those I serve.
When I stopped worrying about my own prosperity and began
working actively and intelligently to increase the financial wealth
of others, my own income began to increase.  The rule is easy to
understand:  when I offer a product or a service that truly contributes
to the prosperity, well-being, and happiness of others, I am rewarded.
But I must be able to ask myself what the real motivation is.  I must
devote all of my energy to offering things that contribute truly to the
growth and enrichment of others.  Today, I am entirely committed to
making others more prosperous and this is the source
of my satisfaction and my success.
