New Thought Author Wallace Wattles


“There is a genius in every man and woman, waiting to be brought forth” --Wallace Wattles

“The way a man thinks about things is determined by what he believes about them. His thoughts are determined by his faith, and the results depend upon his making a personal application of his faith. If a man has faith in the efficacy of a medicine, and is able to apply that faith to himself, that medicine will certainly cause him to be cured; but though his faith be great, he will not be cured unless he applies it to himself.” --Wallace Wattles, The Science of Getting Well (1910)

“A thought is a substace, producing the thing that is imagined by the thought.” --Wallace Wattles

“By thought, the thing you want is brought to you; by action you receive it. Whatever" --Wallace Wattles, The Science of Getting Rich (1910)

“..You must beleive that it is possible for you to succeed; but it is not enough for you to believe that you can; you must know ythat you can; and the sub-conscious mind must know it as well as the objective mind.......The sub-conscious mind is the source from which power comes in the action of any faculty; and a doubt will cause this power to be withheld, and the action will be weak; therefore, your first step must be to impress your sub-conscious mind with that fact that you CAN.” --Wallace Wattles, How To Get What You Want (1907)

“The more gratefully we fix our minds on the Supreme when good things come to us, the more good things we will receive, and the more rapidly they will come; and the reason simply is that the mental attitude of gratitude draws the mind into closer touch with the source from which the blessings come.”--Wallace Wattles, The Science of Getting Rich (1910)

“There is no such thing as lack of opportunities for the man who is living the advancing life, and who has an advancing mind. Everything that touches your life is an opportunity, if you discover its proper use........Every circumstance, every seeming misfortune, every person you meet, every dog that barks at you, or wags his tail as you pass—all have some element of usefulness to you if you will find it. Study them all, for they are your opportunities. Most men fail by waiting for some particular kind of opportunity, instead of being ready to seize every opportunity” --Wallace Wattles, [How To] Promote Yourself: Creating Business and Personal Success in a Certain Way (1914)

“If you want to help the poor, demonstrate to them that they can become rich; prove it by getting rich yourself” --Wallace Wattles, The Science of Getting Rich (1910)
