Man's mind may be likened to a garden, which may be intelligently cultivated or allowed to run wild; but whether cultivated or neglected, it must, and will, bring forth. If no useful seeds are put into it, then an abundance of useless weed-seeds will fall therein, and will continue to produce their kind.~James Allen (1864-1912)
Just as a gardner cultivates his plot, keeping it free from weeds, and growing the flowers and fruits which he requires, so may a man tend the garden of his mind, weeding out all the wrong, useless, and impure thoughts, and cultivating toward perfection the flowers and fruits of right, useful, and pure thoughts.
By this quote, I would like to introduce James Allen to you. He was a great inspirational writer and a great inspiration to many intellectuals in the early 20th century. He penned more than 20 works before suddenly passing away at the age of 48. His famous quote is, "All that a man achieves and all that he fails to achieve is the direct result of his own thoughts".
You can read one of my favorite James Allen's book,As A Man Thinketh, on line. If you have read any of his book, send me your favorite quote.
