American Writer and Spiritual Teacher, Founder of a Spiritual movement known as Religious Science, a part of the New Thought movement, whose spiritual philosophy is known as "The Science of Mind"
"Why do we look old? Because we remember the weight of the burden of last year's experiences. There is no other reason. Instead of lifting our faces, we should discover that the thing to lift is our thought. It is the mind, not the physical body, which has the stamp of age and reflects it in the body."
"If we are to succeed, we must think success. If we are to be happy, we must think happily. If we are to be well, we must think healthful, constructive thoughts. If we are to get over confusion, we must think peace. The mind can never accept what it rejects."
"There is no such thing as your mind, my mind, and God’s Mind. There’s only Mind, in which we all “live and move and have our being.”"
"The soul needs a physical body here… but when… the body is no longer an adequate instrument through which the soul may function, it lays the present body aside and continues to function through a more subtle one."
"Borrowing knowledge of reality from all sources, taking the best from every study, Science of Mind brings together the highest enlightenment of the ages. "
"Teach and practice, practice and teach - that is all we have; that is all we are good for; that is all we ever ought to do. "
"The universal Mind contains all knowledge. It is the potential ultimate of all things. To it, all things are possible."
"When prayer removes distrust and doubt and enters the field of mental certainty, it becomes faith; and the universe is built on faith."
"I do not believe that God has imposed suffering upon anyone to punish them or to teach them a lesson."
"Practically the whole human race is hypnotized because it thinks what somebody else told it to think."
"The intellect is a cold thing and a merely intellectual idea will never stimulate thought in the same manner that a spiritual idea does."
"The road to freedom lies not through mysteries or occult performances, but through the intelligent use of natural forces and laws."
"There was a time when a man was so convinced that the world was round that he was determined to prove it."
"To believe in a just law of cause and effect, carrying with it a punishment or a reward, is to believe in righteousness."
