I rather like the way the author himself suggests who should read these pages:
“This book is practical, not philosophical; a practical manual, not a treatise upon theories.
It is intended for men and woman whose most pressing need is money; who wish to get rich first and philosophize afterward. It is for those who have, so far, found neither the time, the means, nor the opportunity to go deeply into the study of metaphysics, but who want results and who are willing to take the conclusions of science as a basis for action, without going into all the processes by which these conclusions were reached.”
In momentous events, I think of our South African Comrades and Two Oceans, by way of example, it’s the wayside spectators that cheer us on our way, that keeps us heading for our goal. El Paraíso en la otra esquina, does that for me; how about you?
The most beautiful and dynamic garden in the world is the human mind.
In it grow all manner of thoughts.
Every imaginable species of thoughts grow there; happily they grow alongside each other; which is quite surprising really, considering how different they all are.
Whilst they jostle, like the occupants of any garden, for prominence, they vie with one another for position; some content in their beauty, some content in their fragrance, others boasting both beauty and fragrance.
