“When we look about us, we wee scores of people suffering from an abnormal condition of the nervous system. This has been called the “American Disease,” because it is apparently more prevalent here than in other lands, although it is found wherever people worry. Worry and Fear are at the base of Nervousness, and when these two monsters are driven forth the patient makes rapid recovery. The trouble is that the patient suffering from Nervousness is generally in such a weakened condition that it is hard for him to make use of the forces within him which will enable him to get rid of the sources of his trouble. But it can be done.” --William Walker Atkinson, Self-Healing By Thought Force (1907)

"Go through the world "with the grace of God in your heart, and a good, strong hickory club in your hand" --William Walker Atkinson

The Law of Attraction brings to you your share of the sunshine with which the world is plentifully supplied.

“If every sensation, thought, or emotion passed entirely from the mind the moment it ceased to be present, then it would be as if it had not been; and it could not be recognized or named should it happen to return. Such an one would not only be without knowledge,—without experience gathered from the past,—but without purpose, aim, or plan regarding the future, for these imply knowledge and require memory.” --William Walker Atkinson, Memory: How To Develop, Train, And Use It

"That which we call Personal Magnetism is the subtle current of thought‐waves, or thought‐ vibrations, projected from the human mind. Every thought created by our minds is a force of greater or lesser intensity, varying in strength according to the impetus imparted to it at the time of its creation." --William Walker Atkinson,Thought-Force in Business and Everday Life (1900)
