Norman Vincent Peale (牧師)


“There is a basic law that like attracts like. Negative thinking definitely attracts negative results. Conversely, if a person habitually thinks optimistically and hopefully, his positive thinking sets in motion creative forces. And success, instead of eluding him, flows toward him.”

— Norman Vincent Peale, Minister

「類似的東西互相吸引是一基本法則,負面思考必定吸引負面結果,相反的,如果一個人習慣樂觀並充滿希望地思考,他正面的思維將啟動創造性力量,成功將朝他移動,而不是躲避他。」– 諾曼‧文森特‧皮爾 (牧師)
