This is one of my favorite positive affirmations statements:
“If you have a positive thought your body actually goes into a positive vibration.
You actually attract everything that resonates with that vibration”.
“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing”.

Here is a excerpt from his sermon; Committed to Hope:
“People, all the way through life, there’s a future. All the way through life, there’s hope. Even on the deathbed, there’s hope. There’s always hope and faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen”.
“I tried to get one of my students to research this to see whether it was true and I couldn’t find out. But I’ve heard the story that when the great movie, “The Seventh Seal,” by Ingmar Bergman was shown in 1958 in New York, Bobby Fischer, who had just won the world championship in chess, was there in the audience”.
“The movie is built around the story of a medieval Knight who’s playing a game of chess with the Prince of darkness. All the way through the film, the Prince of darkness is making moves on the Knight, trying to trap him. And in the last scene, the Prince of darkness makes a move on the chessboard, looks at the Knight, and says, “Checkmate.”
The game is over. And the curtain comes down. Bobby Fischer is reported to have turned to his friend and said, “Why is that Knight giving up? Doesn’t he see it? Doesn’t he see the pieces on the board? The King has one more move. He can win. The King has one more move!”
