A GREAT many new ideas of extreme value have recently appeared in current thought, but one of the most valuable is the idea that “he can who thinks he can;” and in the mastery of fate it will not only be necessary to keep this idea constantly in mind but also to make the fullest possible use of the law upon which this idea is based.
