New Thought Author Phineas P. Quimby


“Form the habit of seeing only good in everything and everybody so that you cannot see anything else. Look through the outer appearance to the truth within.” --Phineas P. Quimby,

“Rightly directed, the subconscious self is ever active for us, a willing servant, like a better half--wiser than we, ever ready to add its cousels to ours.” --Phineas P. Quimby, Health And The Inner Life (1906)

“Every one is made of matter, and matter is continually going through a chemical change. This change is life, not wisdom, but life, like vegetable or mineral life. Every idea is matter, so of course it contains life in the name of something that can be changed. Motion, or change, is life. Ideas have life. A belief has life, or matter; for it can be changed. Now, all the aforesaid make up man; and all this can be changed” --Phineas P. Quimby,

“The doctors take the bodily evidence as the disease. . . . disease is itself an impudent opinion. He throws off the feelings of the sick and imparts to them his own which are perfect health, and his explanation destroys their feelings or disease. . . . He is like a captain who knows his business and feels confident in a storm, and his confidence sustains the crew and ship when both would be lost if the captain should give way to his fears.” --Phineas P. Quimby,

“Science is wisdom reduced to practice.” --Phineas P. Quimby, The Complete Works of Phineas P. Quimby (1988)
