There are few strong new forces in the world today. Man’s civilization is tired, fed up with war, poverty and crime.Perhaps it is natural that anyone who offered help would also be fought at first. Man is so used to fighting, so used to being fooled.I set out to try to help my fellow man and to do what little I could to make the world a better place.The future will tell more than I could about the value of my work.
Ron Hubbard
#Civilization

Convince a man that he is an animal, that his own dignity and self-respect are delusions, that there is no 'beyond' to aspire to, no higher potential self to achieve, and you have a slave. Let a man know he is himself, a spiritual being, that he is capable of the power of choice and has the right to aspire to greater wisdom and you have started him up a higher road.
Ron Hubbard

The evolution of knowledge is toward simplicity, not complexity.
Ron Hubbard
#Complexity

There is only one security, and when you've lost that security, you've lost everything you've got. And that is the security of confidence in yourself; to be, to create, to make any position you want to make for yourself. And when you lose that confidence, you've lost the only security you can have. ... Self-confidence is self-determinism. One's belief in one's ability to determine his own course. As long as one has that, he's got the universe in his pocket. And when he hasn't got that, not all the pearls in China nor all the grain and corn in Iowa can give him security, because that's the only security there is.
Ron Hubbard
#Confidence

Ideas and not battles mark the forward progress of mankind. Individuals, and not masses, form the culture of the race.
Ron Hubbard
#Culture

Happiness and strength endure only in the absence of hate. To hate alone is the road to disaster. To love is the road to strength. To love in spite of all is the secret of greatness. And may very well be the greatest secret in this universe.
Ron Hubbard

The freedom of an individual depends upon that individual’s freedom to alter his considerations of space, energy, time and life and his roles in it. If he cannot change his mind about these, he is then fixed and enslaved amidst barriers such as those of the physical universe, and barriers of his own creation. Man thus is seen to be enslaved by barriers of his own creation. He creates these barriers himself, or by agreeing with things which hold these barriers to be actual.
Ron Hubbard
#Energy

Despite the amount of suffering, pain, misery, sorrow and travail which can exist in life, the reason for existence is the same reason as one has to play a game—interest, contest, activity and possession. The truth of this assertion is established by an observation of the elements of games and then applying these elements to life itself.
Ron Hubbard
#Existence

Freedom is for honest people. No man who is not himself honest can be free – he is his own trap.
Ron Hubbard

Ron Hubbard
#Communication

Probably the most neglected friend you have is you. And yet every man, before he can be a true friend to the world, must first become a friend to himself.
Ron Hubbard
#Man

There is only one way, really, to get into a state of living, and that's live! There is no substitute for an all-out, over-the-ramparts, howling charge against life. That's living. Living does not consist of sitting in a temple in the shadows and getting rheumatism from the cold stones. Living is hot, it's fast, it's often brutal! It has a terrific gamut of emotional reactions. If you are really willing to live, you first have to be willing to do anything that consists of living. Weird. But it's one of those awfully true things that you wonder why one has to say it. And yet it has to be said.
Ron Hubbard
#Living

To be happy, one only must be able to confront, which is to say, experience, those things that are. Unhappiness is only this: the inability to confront that which is.
Ron Hubbard
#Experience

The best way to know any future is to cause one. And that’s why, you see, when you start consulting the oracle at Delphi, you’ve taken a step downhill. You have assigned cause for the future elsewhere...So one predicts the future as much as one is cause. The future isn’t a pattern laid out to abuse and bully you. The future is a beautiful playground that nobody happen to be combining. You talk about virgin territory – the most virgin territory there is, is the future. You can do anything you want with it.
Ron Hubbard
#Future

All disturbance and chaos folds up in the teeth of truth.Don’t ever try to stop truth. It’s the only thing that can go through 16-inch armor plate.

A person with amnesia is looked upon as ill. What of a person who can remember only this life? Is this then not a case of amnesia on a grand scale?
Ron Hubbard
#Life

You would not tolerate for one moment the conduct in an individual that is commonplace in the acts of some nations. You would lock up such a person.
Ron Hubbard

How does life become totally painful? By total retreat. Total noninspection becomes total pain.[…]But existence is basically composed of a very few truths onto which have hung a great many artificialities and which man has adorned with enormous numbers of lies. And man is prisoner of his own shadows. Now one of the things you can do with man is to get him to look up and find out that he can look through the shadows and look at the shadows and find out what they are.
Ron Hubbard
#Existence

Man thought he had a human spirit. That is totally incorrect. Man is a human spirit which is enwrapped more or less in a mind which is in a body. That is Homo sapiens.
