"If a man looks upon any other man and
estimates that man as less than himself,
then he is stealing from the other.
He is stealing the other's birthright - that of equality."
"An awakened imagination works with a purpose.
It creates and conserves the desirable,
and transforms or destroys the undesirable."
"Nothing comes from without;
all things come from within -
from the subconscious."
"Man moves in a world that is nothing more or less
than his consciousness objectified."
"Chance or accident is not responsible for the things that happen to you,
nor is predestined fate the author of your fortune or misfortune.
Your subconscious impressions determine the conditions of your world.
The subconscious is not selective; it is impersonal and
no respecter of persons. The subconscious is not concerned with the truth
or falsity of your feeling. It always accepts as true that which you feel
to be true. Feeling is the assent of the subconscious to the truth of that
which is declared to be true. Because of this quality of the subconscious
there is nothing impossible to man. Whatever the mind of man can conceive
and feel as true, the subconscious can and must objectify.
Your feelings create the pattern from which your world is fashioned,
and a change of feeling is a change of pattern."
