“Mind is the master power that moulds and makes
And man is mind and evermore he takes
The tool of thought and shaping what he wills
Brings forth a thousand joys; a thousand ills
He thinks in secret and it comes to pass
Environment is but his looking glass.”
So says James Allen, a pioneering figure of modern inspirational thought, seeing through eyes of a journalist how great men formulate their inherent energy into a productive positive light.
