Here are 39 quotes from the book

If we want to be happy, all we have to do is to concentrate on the ninety per cent that are right and ignore the ten per cent that are wrong. If we want to be worried and bitter and have stomach ulcers, all we have to do is to concentrate on the ten per cent that are wrong and ignore the ninety per cent that are glorious”


2. “Whether in war or peace, the chief difference between good thinking and bad thinking is this: good thinking deals with causes and effects and leads to logical, constructive planning; bad thinking frequently leads to tension and nervous breakdowns”

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”

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”
