Arthur C. Brooks Quotes and Sayings

I hope you find great value in these Quotes by Arthur C. Brooks from my large collection of motivational and inspirational quotes and sayings.

The more control you have over your life,
the more responsible you feel for your own success -
or failure.
- Arthur C. Brooks

Free enterprise is essentially a formula not just for wealth creation,
but for life satisfaction.
- Arthur C. Brooks

If you think spreading money around by force seems
like an odd definition of fairness,
you're not alone.
- Arthur C. Brooks

any political party dedicated to limited government and entrepreneurship.

In my book I don't just demonstrate that free enterprise
is the most efficient way of organizing an economy -

and, thus, that a fight for free enterprise is very
much a fight for our culture.
- Arthur C. Brooks

We will have bigger bureaucracies, bigger labor unions,
and bigger state-run corporations.
It will be harder to be an entrepreneur because of
punitive taxes and regulations.
The rewards of success will be expropriated for the
sake of attaining greater income equality.
- Arthur C. Brooks

Whether we look at capitalism, taxes,
business, or government, the data show a clear and consistent pattern:
70 percent of Americans support the free enterprise
system and are unsupportive of big government.
- Arthur C. Brooks

FDR created today's 30 percent coalition.
Obama wants to finish the job by turning it into a
permanent ruling majority.
There's nothing new about the Obama Narrative.
It is the FDR Narrative on steroids.
It is intended to lead to greater statism and political gain.
- Arthur C. Brooks

There is nothing inherently fair about equalizing incomes.
If the government penalizes you for working harder than somebody else,
that is unfair.
If you save your money but retire with the same pension
as a free-spending neighbor,
that is also unfair.
- Arthur C. Brooks

The truth is that relative income is not directly related to happiness.
Nonpartisan social-survey data clearly show that the
big driver of happiness is earned success:
a person's belief that he has created value in his
life or the life of others.
- Arthur C. Brooks

The system that enables the most people to earn the
most success is free enterprise,
by matching up people's skills, interests,
and abilities.
In contrast, redistribution simply spreads money around.
Even worse, it attenuates the ability to earn success
by perverting economic incentives.
- Arthur C. Brooks

- Epictetus

shape our lives at a core level
is very much within our own control.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

If you don't control what you think,

about yourself or your life that you want to change.

- Mary Anne Radmacher

Your life is the sum result of all the choices you make,
both consciously and unconsciously. If you can control

You can act to change and control your life;
and the procedure, the process is its own reward.
- Amelia Earhart

While it is natural to feel some degree of
need for the approval of others, be careful.
If you find yourself unwilling to
take actions that others disapprove of,
you have lost control of your own life
and have given your destiny to others.
An excessive need-for-approval
is a sign of low self-esteem,
and in severe cases, a condition termed co-dependency.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

In dwelling, live close to the ground.
In thinking, keep to the simple.
In conflict, be fair and generous.
In governing, don't try to control.
In work, do what you enjoy.
In family life, be completely present.
- Lao Tzu

If we want to direct our lives,
we must take control of our consistent actions.
It's not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives,
but what we do consistently.
- Anthony Robbins

AN INSPIRED LIFE: I HAVE A CHOICE
My key to living an inspired life involves
Embracing my history,
Understanding the function of expectations
and gently learning to have none;
Recognizing the power of attentive and conscious choices.
In all circumstances I acknowledge this,
IN ALL THINGS AND ALL WAYS, I HAVE CHOICE.
My choice resides in my perspective.
While I certainly do not control climate
and markets and roadways and others,
I do control myself and my response
to all those circumstances. I do indeed.
- Mary Anne Radmacher

If you have an emotional reaction in the presence of someone,
your heart is telling you that you have
not resolved your issues with them.
In other words, you have not truly forgiven that person.
All of this begs the question, how do we forgive?
First, cease lying to yourself and stop telling yourself stories
about why you behave the way you do.
Stop blaming your behavior on other people
and take responsibility for your emotional reactions.
If you could forgive all the people in your life
who have hurt or wounded you
it would be possible to be in control of your behavior
instead of being in reaction to other people all of the time.
Imagine living life without experiencing
a constant emotional roller-coaster of pain, anger, and jealousy!
That would be bliss!
-Sheri Rosenthal
