The book that talks about power of awareness, law of assumption (Visualization) and attention on set objective is full of thought-provoking quotes.

Here are few best quotes and lines from the book that will help you broaden your perspective of how to attract anything.

1. ” ‘I AM’ is a feeling of permanent awareness. The very center of consciousness is the feeling of ‘I AM.’ I may forget who I am, where I am, what I am, but I cannot forget that I AM. The awareness of being remains, regardless of the degree of forgetfulness of whom, where and what I am”

2. “The knowledge that you are the sole creator of the contents of your life, both good and bad, not only make you a much keen observer of all phenomena but through the awareness of the power of your own consciousness, intensifies your appreciation of the richness and grandeur of life”

3. “Rain falls as a result of a change in the temperature in the higher regions of the atmosphere, so, in like manner, a change of circumstance happens as a result of a change in your state of consciousness”

4. “If you would change your life, you must begin at the very source with your own basic concept of self. Outer change, becoming part of organizations, political bodies, religious bodies, is not enough”

5. “The great secret is a controlled imagination and a well sustained attention firmly and repeatedly focused on the feeling of the wish fulfilled until it fills the mind and crowds all other ideas out of consciousness”

6. “Perpetual construction of future states without the consciousness of already being them, that is, picturing your desire without actually assuming the feeling of the wish fulfilled, is the fallacy and mirage of mankind”

7. “You know a thing mentally by looking at it from the outside, by comparing it with other things, by analyzing it and defining it; whereas you can know a thing spiritually only by becoming it”

8. “Live your life in a sublime spirit of confidence and determination; disregard appearances, conditions, in fact all evidence of your senses that deny the fulfillment of your desire”

9. “You can experience in imagination what you desire to experience in reality, and by maintaining this experience in imagination your desire will become an actuality”

10. “When you can call up at will whatsoever image you please, when the forms of your imagination are as vivid to you as the forms of nature, you are master of your fate”

11. “Contrary to popular opinion, the efficacy of faith is not due to the work of any outside agency. It is from first to last an activity of your own consciousness”

12. “With the passport of desire and on the wings of a controlled imagination she traveled into the future of her own predetermined experience”

13. “The great secret is a controlled imagination and a well sustained attention firmly and repeatedly focused on the object to be accomplished”

14. “Our deepest feelings are precisely those we are least able to express, and even in the act of adoration, silence is our highest praise”

15. “Everything depends on your attitude towards yourself. That which you will not affirm as true of yourself can never be realized by you”

16. “Your concept of yourself, such as “I am strong,” “I am secure,” “I am loved,” determines the world in which you live”

17. “The rich man, poor man, beggar man or thief are not different minds, but different arrangements of the same mind”

18. “Your imagination is the instrument, the means, whereby your redemption from slavery, sickness and poverty is produced”

19. ” The desire which realizes itself is always a desire upon which attention is exclusively concentrated”

20. “The great secret of success is to focus the attention on the feeling of the wish fulfilled without permitting any distraction”

21. “The fact that it does not feel natural to you to be what you imagine yourself to be is the secret of your failure”

22. “Be still and know that you are that, which you desire to be, and you will never have to search for it”

23. “Your imagination is able to do all that you ask in proportion to the degree of your attention”

24. “If you will not imagine yourself as other than what you are, then you will remain as you are”

25. “A miracle is the name given, by those who have no faith, to the works of faith”

From Poverty to Power James Allen Quotes

Book – From Poverty to Powerfrom poverty to power book cover photo

Author – James Allen

Genre – Classic Self- help Book

Published in – 1901

Whether you are searching for material success, inner peace, happiness or embarking spiritual journey. This book can be of great help. From poverty to power connects both world accomplishment and helps you conquer both by mastering self.

The published more than 100 years ago in 1901 is as relevant today, as it was at the time of its initial publishing. The book captures power of working on self really well and is full of great quotes and thought-provoking lines on life.

Here are greats quotes from the book.

1. “What you are, so is your world. It matters everything what you are within, for everything without will be mirrored and colored accordingly”

2. “Every soul attracts its own, and nothing can come to it that does not belong to it”

3. “Whether one is fearful or fearless, foolish or wise, troubled or serene, within that soul lies the cause of its own state or states, and never without”

4. “Do you wish for kindness? Be kind. Do you ask for truth? Be true. What you give of yourself you find; Your world is a reflex of you”

5. “Every condition of life is, therefore, bound up in an orderly and harmonious sequence, and the secret and cause of every condition is contained within itself”

6. “The cause of all power as of all weakness is within: the secret of all happiness as of all misery is likewise within.”

7. “You may bring about that improved condition in your outward life which you desire if you will unnervingly resolve to improve your inner life. I know this pathway looks barren at its commencement. (Truth always does – it is only error and delusion which are at first inviting and fascinating)

8. “Cease your complaining and fretting; none of these things that you blame are the cause of your poverty; the cause is within yourself, and where the cause is, there is the remedy. The very fact that you are a complainer shows that you deserve your lot, shows that you lack that faith which is the ground of all effort and progress”

9. “Alter your outlook upon life, and your outward life will alter”

10. “Build yourself up in the faith and knowledge, and make yourself worthy of better surroundings and wider opportunities. Be sure, first of all, that you are making the best of what you have”

12.” Before complaining that you are a slave to another, be sure that you are not a slave to self. Look withing; look searchingly and have no mercy upon yourself. You will find there, perchance, slavish thoughts, slavish desires, and in your daily life and conduct slavish habits. Conquer these; cease to be a slave to self, and no one will have the power to enslave you”

13. “There is no practice more degrading, debasing, and soul-destroying than that of self-pity. Cast it out from you”

14. “If you would become truly and permanently prosperous, you must first become virtuous. It is therefore unwise to aim directly at prosperity, to make it the one object of life, to reach out greedily for it. But rather aim at self perfection, make useful and unselfish service the object of your life, and ever reach out hands of faith toward the supreme and alterable good”

15. “Where there is fear, worry, anxiety, doubt, trouble, chagrin, or disappointment, there is ignorance and lack of faith”

16. “To fear or to worry is as sinful as to curse, for if we intrinsically believe in the eternal justice, the omnipotent good, the boundless love, there is no reason to fear or to worry. To fear, to worry, to doubt, is to deny, to disbelieve”

17. ” Faith and purpose constitute the motive power of life. There is nothing that a strong faith and an unflinching purpose may not accomplish”

18. “When anxiety steps in, correct judgment passes out. Now if you will take advantage of a quiet hour or two in the early morning or at night and go away to some solitary spot, or to some room in your house where you know you will be absolutely free from intrusion, and having seated yourself in an easy attitude, your forcibly direct your mind right away from the object of anxiety by dwelling upon something in your life that is pleasing and bliss-giving, a calm, reposeful strength will gradually steal into your mind and your anxiety will pass away”

19. “The difference between a savior and sinner is this: that the one has a perfect control of all the forces within him or her; the other is dominated and controlled by them”

20. “Insofar as you are enslaved by the changing moods within you, you will need to depend upon others and upon outward aids as you walk through life”

21. “If you would be free from all physical aches and pains and would enjoy perfect physical harmony, then put your mind in order and harmonize your thoughts. Think joyful thoughts; think loving thoughts; let the elixir of goodwill course through your veins, and you will need no other medicine”

22. ” By the power of faith every enduring work is accomplished. You must have faith in the Supreme, faith in the overruling law, faith in your work and in your power to accomplish that work. This is the rock upon which you must build if you would achieve, if you would stand and not fall. You must follow under all circumstances the highest promptings within you. You must always be true to your divine self, to rely upon the inward light, the inward voice.

23. “Mere wishing brings nothing but disappointment; it is living that tells. The foolish wish and grumble; the wise work and wait”

24. “If you would acquire overcoming power, you must cultivate poise and passivity. You must be able to stand alone. All power is associated with immovability”

25. ” People of power remain calm and unmoved even when all around them are swayed by some emotion or passion”

26. “You cannot be fit to command and control unless you have succeeded in commanding and controlling yourself”

27. “Self-purified, health will be yours; faith protected, success will be yours; self-governed, power will be yours”

28. “Most people will admit that selfishness is the cause of all the unhappiness in the world, but they fall under the soul-destroying delusion that it is somebody else’s selfishness and not their own”

29. “Cling to self and you cling to sorrow; relinquish self and you enter into peace. To seek selfishly is not only to lose happiness but even that which we believe to be the source of happiness”

30. ” Taking the first step with a good thought, the second with a good word, and the third with a good deed, I entered Paradise”

31 “It is indeed “more blessed to give than to receive.” But giving must be of the heart without any taint of self, without desire for reward”

32. “If you are daily praying for wisdom, for peace, for loftier purity and fuller realization of truth, and that for which you pray is still far from you, it means that you are praying for one thing while living out in thought and act another”

33. “The heights by great men reached and kept, were not attained by sudden flight, But they, while their companions slept, were toiling upward in the night”

34. “Those enslaved by self, passionate, proud, and condemnatory, believe their particular creed, or religion to be the truth and all other religions to be error; and they proselytize with passionate ardor. There is but one religion, the religion of truth”

35. “Do you seek to realize the birth into truth? There is only one way: let self die. All those lusts, appetites, desires, opinions, limited conceptions, and prejudices to which you have hitherto so tenaciously clung, let them fall from you. Let them no longer hold you in bondage, and truth will be yours. Cease to look upon your own religion as superior to all others, and strive humbly to learn the supreme lesson of charity”

36. “Self-centered people regard the loss of their wealth, their comforts, or their lives as the greatest calamities which can befall them. People of principle look upon these incidents as comparatively insignificant and not to be compared with loss of character and loss of truth”

37. ” It is easy in the world to live after the world’s opinion; it is easy in solitude to live after our own; but truly great people are those who in the midst of the crowd keep with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude”

38. ” If you love people and speak of them with praise until they in some ways thwart you, or do something of which you disapprove, and then you dislike them and speak of them with dispraise, you are not governed by the love that is of God. If, in your heart, you are continually arraigning and condemning others, selfless love is hidden from you”

39. ” Until you can regard people of all religions and of no religion with the same impartial spirit, with all freedom from dislike, and with perfect equanimity, you have yet to strive for that love which bestows upon its possessor freedom and salvation”

40. ” Train your mind in strong, impartial, and gentle thoughts; train your heart in purity and compassion; train your tongue to silence and to true and stainless speech; so shall you enter the way of holiness and peace and shall ultimately realize the immortal love”

“So living, without seeking to convert, you will convince; without arguing, you will teach; not cherishing ambition, the wise will find you out; and without striving to gain others’ opinions, you will subdue their hearts. For love is all-conquering, all-powerful; and the thoughts, and deeds, and words of love can never perish”

41. ” As the smallest drop of water detached from the ocean contains all the qualities of the ocean, so we detached in consciousness from the infinite, contain within ourselves its likeness; and as the drop of water must, by the law of its nature, ultimately find its way back to the ocean and lose itself in its silent depths, so must we, by the unfailing law of our nature, at last return to our source and lose ourselves in the great ocean of the infinite”

42. ” Perishable dogmas are formulated and called truth. Truth cannot be formulated; it is ineffable and ever beyond the reach of intellect. It can be experienced only by practice; it can be manifested only as a stainless heart and a perfect life”

43. ” Those who are patient, calm, gentle, and forgiving under all circumstances manifest the truth. Truth will never be proved by wordy arguments and learned treatises, for if people do not perceive the truth in infinite patience, undying forgiveness, and all-embracing compassion, no words can ever prove it to them”

44. ” Names, religions, personalities, pass away, but the law of love remains”

“It is because of the effort of the soul to realize this law that we humans come again and again to live, to suffer, and to die, and when realized, suffering ceases, personality is dispersed, and the fleshly life and death are destroyed, for consciousness becomes one with the Eternal”

45. “Truth cannot be limited ; it can never be the special prerogative of any person, school, or nation, and when personality steps in, truth is lost”

46. “A pure heart is the end of all religion and the beginning of divinity”

47.”No one else can give up sin for you; you must give it up yourself. The greatest teacher can do no more than walk the way of truth and point it out to you; you must walk it for yourself”
