“As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.”
- Book of Proverbs, Chapter 23 Verse 7
AS A MAN THINKETH has long been read by millions of people seeking joy, success, and health through the power of thought and its effect on life.
James Allen argues for the power of individuals to form their own character and to create their own happiness. Thought and character are one, he says, and as character can only manifest and discover itself through environment and circumstance, the outer conditions of a person's life will always be found to be harmoniously related to his inner state."
And thus James Allen teaches two essential truths: today we are where our thoughts have taken us, and we are the architects - for better or worse - of our futures. Perhaps one of the greatest writers of this century, he portrays the Truth clearly, eloquently and with no misunderstanding. As a Man Thinketh is a timeless piece.
"Men do not attract what they want, but what they are."
"A man is literally what he thinks, his character being the complete sum of all his thoughts."
"Cherish your visions. Cherish your ideals. Cherish the music that stirs in your heart, the beauty that forms in your mind, the loveliness that drapes your purest thoughts, for out of them will grow all delightful conditions, all heavenly environment, of these, if you but remain true to them your world will at last be built."
"The soul attracts that which it secretly harbors, that which it loves, and also that which it fears. It reaches the height of its cherished aspirations. It falls to the level of its unchastened desires - and circumstances are the means by which the soul receives its own."
"Men are anxious to improve their circumstances, but are unwilling to improve themselves, they therefore remain bound."
"Every action and feeling is preceded by a thought."
"Right thinking begins with the words we say to ourselves."
"Circumstance does not make the man, it reveals him to himself."
"You cannot travel within and stand still without."
"As the physically weak man can make himself strong by careful and patient training, so the man of weak thoughts, can make them strong by exercising himself in right thinking."
"Every man is where he is by the law of his being; the thoughts which he has built into his character have brought him there, and in the arrangement of his life there is no element of chance, but all is the result of a law which cannot err"
