Before "New Age" there was "New Thought," a philosophy that sought God through metaphysics and was wildly popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. American mystic and best-selling author RALPH WALDO TRINE (1866-1958) was one of the most significant writers on New Thought principles, and here, in this 1913 work, subtitled "The Vital Law of True Life, True Greatness, Power, and Happiness," Trine explores: . how to cultivate the state of mind that draws success to it . why doing well really does follow doing good . the secret truth about chance and fate . building character through the right kind of thought . and more. Elegant and persuasive, Trine's words continue to be as influential today as they were a century ago.

But, if it had, the only thanks I should desire is, that you would always be equally ready to serve any other person that may need your assistance, and so let good offices go round; for mankind are all of a family.
Página 90 - For my own part, when I am employed in serving others, I do not look upon myself as conferring favors, but as paying debts.
Página 90 - I do not look upon myself as conferring favours, but as paying debts. In my travels and since my settlement I have received much kindness from men, to whom I shall never have any opportunity of making the least direct return, and numberless mercies from God, who is infinitely above being benefited by our services.
Página 40 - The clear conception, outrunning the deductions of logic, the high purpose, the firm resolve, the dauntless spirit, speaking on the tongue, beaming from the eye, informing every feature, and urging the whole man onward, right onward to his object — this, this is eloquence ; or rather it is something greater and higher than all eloquence, it is action, noble, sublime, godlike action.
Página 98 - Thy half -warm horns and long tongue lapping round my wrist do not conceal thy humanity any more than the learned talk of the pedant conceals his,— for all thou art dumb, we have words and plenty between us. "Come nigh, little bird, with your halfstretched quivering wings, — within you I behold choirs of angels, and the Lord himself in vista.
