„The visions you glorify in your mind,
The ideals you enthrone in your heart..
This you will build your life by…
This you will become.“

—  James Allen

As A Man Thinketh (1902), Visions and Ideals
Contexto: In all human affairs there are efforts, and there are results, and the strength of the effort is the measure of the result. Chance is not. Gifts, powers, material, intellectual, and spiritual possessions are the fruits of effort; they are thoughts completed, objects accomplished, visions realized.
The Vision that you glorify in your mind, the Ideal that you enthrone in your heart — this you will build your life by, this you will become.

„The dreamers are the saviours of the world.“

—  James Allen

As A Man Thinketh (1902), Visions and Ideals
Contexto: The dreamers are the saviours of the world. As the visible world is sustained by the invisible, so men, through all their trials and sins and sordid vocations, are nourished by the beautiful visions of their solitary dreamers. Humanity cannot forget its dreamers; it cannot let their ideals fade and die; it lives in them; it knows them as the realities which it shall one day see and know.

„Act is the blossom of thought, and joy and suffering are its fruits.“

—  James Allen, libro As a Man Thinketh

As A Man Thinketh (1902)

„When spirit rises and commands,
The gods are ready to obey.“

—  James Allen

As A Man Thinketh (1902), Effect of Thought on Circumstances
Contexto: Be not impatient in delays,
But wait, as one who understands.
When spirit rises and commands,
The gods are ready to obey.

„The world is your kaleidoscope, and the varying combinations of colours, which at every succeeding moment it presents to you are the exquisitely adjusted pictures of your ever-moving thoughts.
You will be, what you "will" to be.“

—  James Allen

As A Man Thinketh (1902), Effect of Thought on Circumstances
Contexto: The world is your kaleidoscope, and the varying combinations of colours, which at every succeeding moment it presents to you are the exquisitely adjusted pictures of your ever-moving thoughts.
You will be, what you "will" to be.
Let failure find its false content,
In that poor word "environment,"
But spirit scorns it and is free.

„Self-control is strength. Right thought is mastery. Calmness is power.“

„The more tranquil a man becomes, the greater is his success, his influence, his power for good. Calmness of mind is one of the beautiful jewels of wisdom.“

—  James Allen

As A Man Thinketh (1902), Serenity
Contexto: The calm man, having learned how to govern himself, knows how to adapt himself to others; and they, in turn, reverence his spiritual strength, and feel that they can learn of him and rely upon him. The more tranquil a man becomes, the greater is his success, his influence, his power for good.
