Excerpts and Analysis
"If all men were to bring their miseries together in one place, most would be glad to take each his own home again, rather than take a portion out of the common stock." It's saying, for the first time, the grass isn't always greener on the other side. Don't look over your neighbour's fence and go "oooh, he's got a better car than me... oooh, he's got a more attractive wife".
"There is no death... only a change of worlds."
- The book was explicitly named "Native American Wisdom" in Realising Potential.
