* * * * * END EXCERPT * * * * *

There is only one security, and when you've lost that security, you've lost everything you've got. And that is the security of confidence in yourself; to be, to create.

Probably the most neglected friend you have is you. And yet every man, before he can be a true friend to the world, must first become a friend to himself..

A person is either the effect of his environment or is able to have an effect upon his environment.

The hardest thing to explain is the glaringly evident which everybody had decided not to see.

Ideas and not battles mark the forward progress of mankind. Individuals, and not masses, form the culture of the race.

Make money. Make more money. Make other people make money.

There is a condition worse than blindness, and that is, seeing something that isn't there.

To be happy, one only must be able to confront, which is to say, experience, those things that are. Unhappiness is only this: the inability to confront that which is.

Ask yourself whether the dream of heaven and greatness should be waiting for us in our graves - or whether it should be ours here and now and on this earth.

Any group or “collective,” large or small, is only a number of individuals. A group can have no rights other than the rights of its individual members.

The question isn't who is going to let me; it’s who is going to stop me.

Man’s unique reward, however, is that while animals survive by adjusting themselves to their background, man survives by adjusting his background to himself.

The most depraved type of human being is the man without a purpose.

Money is the barometer of a society’s virtue.

There is nothing to take a man's freedom away from him, save other men. To be free, a man must be free of his brothers.

Self-confidence is self-determinism. One's belief in one's ability to determine his own course. As long as one has that, he's got the universe in his pocket.

The best way to know any future is to cause one.

Achieving life is not the equivalent of avoiding death.

Single men and determined groups have been the only makers of space in which man could walk free.

To achieve, you need thought. You have to know what you are doing and that's real power.

Scored 70%. Most of the Hubbard quotes are not the big memorable ones, rather then some sentence taken from the middle of some 2h lecture though.
