As a Man Thinketh
By James Allen
A man is literally what he thinks.
A man is made or unmade by his thoughts.
Act is the blossom of thoughts.
A man is made up of his thoughts. With his thoughts he prepares his weapons and makes his life good or bad.
Man holds within himself a power to make him or destroy him.
Man is the maker of his character and the builder of his destiny.
Thought and character are one.
Every man is where he is by the thoughts that have taken him there.
Good thoughts bear good fruit and bad thoughts bear bad fruit.
Circumstance does not make the man it reveals the man.
Your wishes and prayers are granted when your thoughts and desires combine with them.
A man cannot change his circumstances but he can change his thoughts so therefore he can ultimately control the circumstances.
You will be what you will to be.
The body is the servant of the mind.
Thoughts of fear can kill a man.
Out of a clean heart come a clean life and a clean body. And out of a defiled mind comes a defiled body and life.
If you make the fountain pure (your thoughts) your life will be pure.
The change of diet will not change a man who will not change his thoughts.
If you are to guard your body, guard your mind. If you’re to beautify your body, beautify your mind.
A sour face is not made by chance; it is made by sour thoughts.
Thoughts of doubt and fear never accomplish anything and they always lead to failure.
He who has conquered doubt and fear has conquered failure.
All that a man achieves and all that a man fails to achieve is directly connected to his thoughts.
A mans suffering, peace, success and well-being is a result of his own, not of any other.
A man can only conquer and arise according to his thoughts. And a man will remain miserable according to his thoughts.
A man ascends or descends according to his thoughts. All achievements are a direct result of thought.
To desire is to obtain and to aspire is to achieve.
The greatest achievements were at once just but a dream. Dreams are the ceilings of reality.
A man is as calm and surreal as he wants to be.
The more tranquil a man becomes, the more success he can have.
The strong, calm man is always loved and revered by others.
Right thoughts are mastery and calmness is power.
Mind is the master weaver.
