Lafayette Ronald Hubbard (1911-86), the founder of Scientology, says in the booklet The Way to Happiness (1996):
A school is not a place where one puts children to get them out from underfoot during the day.
False data can cause one to make stupid mistakes. It can even block one from absorbing true data.
Has there ever been an instance when another had some false data about you? Did it cause you trouble? This can give you some idea of the havoc false data can raise.
Help take care of the planet . . . It is, after all, what we're standing on.
Learn from occasional setbacks and minor losses and carry on. The road with bumps may still be travelled. [Mod]
Malevolent people . . ., seeing one improve his lot, can become frantic and attack all the harder.
Movie stunt men who don't practice first get hurt. So do housewives.
One can get into a lot of conflicting opinions and confusions about what "good behavior" might be.
One can map a new [road]. And try to follow it. There is no person alive who cannot make a new beginning.
School is where one should learn to study and where children can be prepared to come to grips with reality; to learn to handle it with competence and to be readied to take over tomorrow's world, the world where current adults will be in their later years, middle or old age.
The process of learning is not just piling data on top of more data. It is one of obtaining new understandings and better ways to do things.
The violent criminal, the propagandist, the sensation-seeking media all tend to distract one's attention from the solid, everyday fact that the society would not run at all were it not for the individuals of good will.
The way to happiness does not include murdering your friends.
The way to happiness lies along the road to truth.
True competence is based on one's own ability to observe.
Whether rich or poor, and for whatever reason, people who do not take care of their possessions and places can cause disorder to those about them.
Cater to Your Health in Ways You Can
Unfamiliar words need to be understood first, before going on. You can make it an ongoing practice to look up what the main words mean. That is an important feature in the teachings of Lafayette Ronald Hubbard (1911-86), as you can see in his book Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health (1950), and it is basic to most of the successful study procedures too.
Be very, very certain you never go past a word you do not fully understand.
If you fall off a horse, get right back on as soon as you are can muster it. As you seek to tackle life, the same lesson applies. Not all roads are even. If you fall, get up and going again as long as you last.
Your own survival can be threatened by the bad actions of others around you.
You can influence others without too much trouble: point the way to a less dangerous and happier life. Set a good example. Flourish and prosper. [Abr.]
The Church of Scientology was founded by Hubbard in 1954. Hubbard believed that the basic principle of human existence is survival. "At the earliest stage, the individual experiences the urge to survive as an individual first but then learns to identify with . . . the family, the tribe or nation, and all humankind . . . [A]s individual Scientologists become aware . . . and experience God, they are free to reach their own conclusions as to God's nature." For Hubbard, the process of freeing the individual is the fundamental purpose of religion.
In the 1970s the Church of Scientology spread across Europe. Its growth continued through the 1980s, and spread into eastern Europe. Today the Church of Scientology operates in more than 150 countries.
