The Gift of Acabar (Og Mandino and Buddy Kaye, c1978)

The Gift of Acabar, Og Mandino and Buddy kaye, c1978


I have read that one can always find a seed of happiness in every adversity if one looks for it.

There is nothing in the world so much admired as a man who knows how to bear unhappiness with courage. - Seneca

Loneliness is one of the prices they must pay for greatness.

...the majority spend so much of their precious allotment of life feeling sorry for themselves that they have no time to enjoy the paradise that was created here. Humans... do not know how to live. All they can do well is die... a little each day.

A life must change from within.

No accuser lives who is as powerful as the conscience that dwells within us.

... you mean that all I have to do to become a shining star in the Kingdom of Forever is use the talent that God has given me to make this a better world....

To struggle is the only certain way for anyone to achieve his full potential.

Adversity is not a curse, it is a blessing. The brightest stars in heaven are those who have been tested in the furnace of tribulation.

...you live in a world filled with people making excuses for their failure because it is always easier to quit than to keep trying.

Credere - Latin, v. to trust or belive.

The greatest lie that has ever circulated this planet is that money can make you happy. The second greatest lie is that success and fame are worth any sacrifice.

Nothing is ever lost.

We are rich only through what we give and poor only through what we keep.

Credenda (Chapter 16)
kaigachi is a conjugation of the Japanese term "kigaicha" or crazy. It roughly translates as "crazy about something."

"One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light but by making the darkness conscious." - C.Jung
