I teach something called The Law of Probabilities,
which says the more things you try, the
more likely one of them will work. The more
books you read, the more likely one of them
will have an answer to a question that could
solve the major problems of your life..

may accomplish individually if the intent
is an impeccable intent. Don Juan's teachings
are not spiritual. I repeat this because

don Juan is the idea of pragmatism.

were building the MGM Grand, same people,
same doomsday. You have to ask a lot of
questions and listen to people, but eventually,

Communism forgets that life is individual.
Capitalism forgets that life is social,
and the kingdom of brotherhood is found
neither in the thesis of communism nor the
antithesis of capitalism but in a higher
synthesis. It is found in a higher synthesis
that combines the truths of both. Now, when
I say question the whole society, it means
ultimately coming to see that the problem
of racism, the problem of exploitation,
and the problem of war are all tied together.
These are the triple evils that are interrelated.
