echoing thoughts

last night i'd mentioned how if you're not getting ahead, you're falling behind. today i was reading the science of getting rich by wallace d. wattles (which i highly recommend) and lo, first thing he says in chapter 5 is this:

The Intelligent Substance which is All and in All, and which lives in All and lives in you, is a consciously Living Substance. Being a consciously Living Substance, it must have the nature and inherent desire of every living intelligence for increase of life. Every living thing must continually seek for the enlargement of its life, because life, in the mere act of living, must increase itself.

A seed, dropped into the ground, springs into activity, and in the act of living produces a hundred more seeds; life, by living, multiplies itself. It is forever Becoming More; it must do so, if it continues to be at all.
--pg 28

so you see? it's not just me. if you're not getting ahead you're falling behind.

...and if you're not getting ahead, you're not living.
