“Ideas and not battles mark the forward progress of mankind.”
L. Ron Hubbard

“When reading a book, be very certain that you never go past a word you do not fully understand. The only reason a person gives up a study or becomes confused or unable to learn is because he or she has gone past a word that was not understood.”
L. Ron Hubbard

“To love in spite of all is the secret of greatness. And may very well be the greatest secret in this universe.”
L. Ron Hubbard
