Norman Vincent Peale (牧师)


“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

「类似的东西互相吸引是一基本法则,负面思考必定吸引负面结果,相反的,如果一个人习惯乐观并充满希望地思考,他正面的思维将启动创造性力量,成功将朝他移动,而不是躲避他。」– 诺曼‧文森特‧皮尔 (牧师)
