As A Man Thinketh

A couple of great quotes from James Allen. My dear mother-in-law gave this book to my son, but I started reading it and have found it very sensible and encouraging. By the way, the "son" to whom it was given is my 8 year-old. I don't know how much of this he can reasonably comprehend, but grand-ma was very impressed, as am I, that he can read so many of the advanced words. He is a very good with spelling and word recognition. He makes us very proud.

"We cannot directly choose our circumstances, but we can choose our thoughts and so, indirectly yet surely, shape our circumstances."
-James Allen (As A Man Thinketh)

"Those who are unprepared for the comprehension of a great purpose should fix their thoughts upon the faultless performance of their duty, no matter how insignificant their task may appear. Only in this way can the thoughts be gathered and focused and resolution and energy be developed, through which there is nothing that may not be accomplished."
-James Allen (As A Man Thinketh)
