Attitudes and Ambitions

"Say to yourself, 'I have certain attitudes and ambitions.  I also have friends and allies in these attitudes.  But what would happen to me if they suddenly withdrew their support of me?'  Do this and you will understand one kind of fear -the fear of standing all alone. But you _can_ stand all alone, which is the only stand having no fear.  Stand in the light of your own lamp and see for yourself. Self-discovery is really a lot of fun."  – Vernon Howard
