All that is required for the triumph of evil is for good men to be given good jobs.
Prejudice is another word for experience.
I believe in self-improvement, for other people.
We live in a dogma-eat-dogma world.
The COVID hoax lockdown disproportionately hurts the industrious and protects the unproductive, i.e. government workers.
Homeopathic dog training. (Whisper the commands under your breath.)
When I went to university, they told us to question authority. Today, they teach students to question their gender.
Feminism harnessed the political power of women who couldn't get a date on Saturday night
(and ensured their ranks swelled.)
I don't have to avoid temptation; temptation avoids me.
A man's religion is his day. (It's not what you believe; it's what you do.)
You have to be good to feel good.
The law of personalities. Big personalities should marry little personalities.
I looked in vain for someone who believed in me when I wouldn't believe in myself. No one believes in people who don't believe in themselves. We seek from others what we won't give ourselves.
I am solar-powered. I don't want to get up on an overcast day.
Referring to my early fame as "Ask Henry" (1961-1964) - Advice to Parents from a Kid, in 40 newspapers:
I have a great future behind me.
Like Egypt and Greece, I peaked too early.
We are grains in the sands of time.
I am the "Father of the science of Socio-dynamics." I wanted to be the "Father of Hygiene" but my son refused to change his name.
Three laws of socio-dynamics. 1. We are attracted to people who have something we want. 2. We are repelled by people who want something from us. 3. We are indifferent to people who don't belong to either category above. Special Fourth Law - We are attracted to people who may have something we may want in the future.
Attending university "remotely" is like ordering take-out from Hooters.
Life begins with exalted expectations followed by a long, slow decline until finally, we meet death with perfect equanimity.
"It was an up-day in the bear market of his mind."
The way to impress women is don't try.
Nothing demystifies women like marriage.
If you live each day like it is your last, do you still need to clean the house?
Me: You can't teach an old dog new tricks.
Wife: Yes you can, but you're not a dog.
Teaching was bringing answers to people who had no questions. They were the wrong answers (I was a socialist) but the observation still applies.
A professor evaluation asked, "what is the best thing about Dr. Makow's class?"
One girl answered, "Not too early in the morning, and not too late in the afternoon."
As "Lao Tzu"
The mind is a prison where the soul is tortured by thought.
The major cause of unhappiness is the misguided pursuit of happiness.
We have a choice. Conversion or Diversion.
We are slaves to the world inversely to our devotion to God.
Empty your mind of all thoughts. What's left is the real you. (Why do we assume we must think all of the time?)
