On a personal note I want to gain more confidence and give back in any way I can.
What win I, if I gain the thing I seek?A dream, a breath, a froth of fleeting joy.Who buys a minute’s mirth to wail a week?Or sells eternity to get a toy?For one sweet grape who will the vine destroy?Or what fond beggar, but to touch the crown,Would with the sceptre straight be strucken down?
Forget your past,Use your pain;Accept that pain,And Achieve the gain.
I can never gain something without losing everything I had before.
Pain is nothing but the darkness that leads to the dawn of gain.
The most thought to keep in mind is that “players” gain money at the end of each game while “spectators” lose it for a ticket in order to see the gainful players display their skills. Don’t you want to keep watching your dreams or you want to get on the run with them?
At the banquet table of nature, there are no reserved seats. You get what you can take, and you keep what you can hold. If you can’t take anything, you won’t get anything, and if you can’t hold anything, you won’t keep anything. And you can’t take anything without organization.
Those that much covet are with gain so fond,For what they have not, that which they possessThey scatter and unloose it from their bond,And so, by hoping more, they have but less;Or, gaining more, the profit of excessIs but to surfeit, and such griefs sustain,That they prove bankrupt in this poor-rich gain.
..various people had long had the feeling that gain through pain was nature’s way
Men of action get the largest fraction of benefits
Great gains come from setting one’s brains into the right frames of thinking
