We have all learned to remember, but few have learned to think. To repeat verbatim what others have thought and said is counted knowledge and with such borrowed knowledge the majority imagine they are satisfied, the reason being they have not discovered the art of thinking thoughts of their own. This is an art that every person must learn; the sooner the better, if the idea is to be made real. Original thinking is the secret of all greatness, all high attainments, all extraordinary achievements and all superior states of being; but no mind can create original thought until a high state of mental harmony is attained. ~Christian D. Larson
To gain real happiness, the first essential is to train yourself to think constantly of the great value of such happiness, and especially with regard to its health producing power. Such thinking will tend to produce a subconscious desire for happiness, and what the subconscious begins to desire it also begins to create. Train yourself to think of happiness as a mental necessity, just as food is a physical necessity, and you will gradually train every element and force in your system to work for the creation of happiness. By creating within yourself a constant demand for happiness, you will inspire the elements of your own nature to produce the desired supply, and ere long the happiness you desire will become a permanent part of your life. ~Christian D. Larson
“Whatever you allow to occupy your mind you magnify in your own life. Whether the subject of your thought – be good or bad, the law works and the condition grows. Any subject that you keep out of your mind tends to diminish, because what you do not use atrophies.” ~Emmet Fox
“What matters to you, truly, is not people or things or conditions in themselves, but the thoughts and beliefs that you hold concerning them. “ ~Emmet Fox
