  • 1. Timeless Thoughts a collection of quotes compiled by ~ Arnold Van Den Berg ~ www.centman.com
  • 2. “I will prepare myself and the opportunity will come.” The impact this quote had upon me was incredible! I immediately changed my business strategy and directed all my energies towards acquiring the knowledge needed to become a successful investment counselor. I cut the quote out of the magazine and placed it in my rolodex where I could look at it every day. Each time I read it, it seemed to reinforce the same message. It gave me faith and strength to continue on. I have been collecting quotes ever since, and they have been a great source of inspiration for me for over forty years. There are no words that could possibly express what these great thoughts have done for my life. As Socrates once said, “Employ your time in reading other men’s works so you can learn easily what it took them all their lives to learn.” Reading and repeating words of inspiration and encouragement will help heal your pain, provide guidance, and develop the faith that you can achieve your dreams and goals. I hope these thoughts will mean as much to you as they have to me. t was early 1975. I had just returned to my office after another disappointing day. Nothing seemed to be going right in my business. I sat down at my desk to think about what I could possibly do to improve my situation. After a few moments, my secretary walked in with her arms full of mail. As she handed the mail to me, a magazine fell onto my desk with its back cover facing up. In big, bold letters, there was a quote by Abraham Lincoln: With best wishes for a successful future, Arnold Van Den Berg
