     “There is no real happiness for those on the wrong side. The greatest pleasure in life is the security of the true side. You can vainly try to win over the world or you can nicely be over the world. Your task is to change your operating center from strained imagination to relaxed reality.”

Quote Archive by Vernon Howard

     Vernon Howard periodically would take time to type up tidbit sheets with sayings and lessons that would be copied by the New Life secretary and then put up for sale at the book table. They were highly treasured, as they contained special lessons to help students along on the spiritual path. Here is a collection of a number of these wonderful quotes, some of which are quite humorous. In this day and age we need all the help we can get.
