All successful men have agreed on one thing—they were causationists.✨
They believed that things went not by luck but by law; there was no weak or a cracked link in the chain that joins the first and last of something.✨
A belief in causality, or strict connection between every trifle and the principle of being, and, in consequence, view in compensation, or that nothing is got for nothing—characterizes all valuable minds and must control every effort that a dynamic one makes.✨
The most courageous men are the best believers in the tension of the laws.
“All the great captains,” said Bonaparte, “have performed vast achievements by conforming with the rules of the art—by adjusting efforts to obstacles.”
