"As a Man Thinketh" by James Allen

"The aphorism, "As a man thinketh in his heart so is he," not only embraces the whole of a man's being, but is so comprehensive as to reach out to every condition and circumstance of his life. A man is literally what he thinks, his character being the complete sum of all his thoughts."

"Act is the blossom of thought, and joy and suffering are its fruits"

"cause and effect is as absolute and undeviating in the hidden realm of thought as in the world of visible and material things"

"A noble and Godlike character is not a thing of favour or chance, but is the natural result of continued effort in right thinking, the effect of long-cherished association with Godlike thoughts. An ignoble and bestial character, by the same process, is the result of the continued harbouring of grovelling thoughts."

"Man is made or unmade by himself; in the armoury of thought he forges the weapons by which he destroys himself; he also fashions the tools with which he builds for himself heavenly mansions of joy and strength and peace."

"man is the master of thought, the moulder of character, and the maker and shaper of condition, environment, and destiny"
