the Journey:


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

Abert F. Geoffrey


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


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

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

People are not rightly conditioned until they are happy, healthy, and prosperous beings; and happiness, health, and prosperity are the result of a harmonious adjustment of the inner with the outer of the man with our 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
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
Prosperity is only an instrument to be used, not a deity to be worshipped.
-Calvin Coolidge

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
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
All prosperity begins in the mind and is dependent only upon the full use of our creative imagination.       -Ruth Ross
Everything in the world may be endured except continual prosperity.        -Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Prosperity is a way of living and thinking, and not just money or things.  Poverty is a way of living and thinking, and not just a lack of money or things.         -Eric Butterworth

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

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
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
