Some suggestions for you :

The Roman Catholic Church isn't going to change its theologies.

There is a quiet place in Hawaii where, for over thirty years, I've gone to draw inspiration and write many of my books.

When you can't solve the problem, manage it.

I would rather attempt something great and fail than attempt to do nothing and succeed.

It is unfulfilled dreams that keep you alive.

I realized that every sermon I preached should be designed not to 'teach' or 'convert' people, but rather to encourage them, to give them a lift. I decided to adopt the spirit, style, strategy and substance of a 'therapist' in the pulpit.

The concept of the megachurch - some have attributed that to me. Whatever people want to buy, they can get it in the shopping center. It's one-stop shopping. Churches should be that way.

Today's accomplishments were yesterday's impossibilities.

Never bring the problem solving stage into the decision making stage. Otherwise, you surrender yourself to the problem rather than the solution.

There are two views of interpreting the Bible in America: that every word is literally the truth without qualification, and then the other view is, it's called plenary inspiration, which holds that all religious truth taught in the Bible is true from God, but each word is not necessarily interpreted literally.

Big egos have little ears.

Press on. Obstacles are seldom the same size tomorrow as they are today.

Goals must never be from your ego, but problems that cry for a solution.

Negative thinking is subtle and deceptive. It wears many faces and hides behind the mask of excuses. It is important to strip away the mask and discover the real, root emotion.
