The Game of Life and How To Play It Quotes

“A keen observer of life once said, 'no man can fail, if some one person sees him successful.' Such is the power of the vision, and many a great man owed his success to a wife, or sister, or a friend who 'believed in him' and held without wavering to the perfect pattern!”

“Materialism is founded on the proposition that matter is primary and consciousness is secondary. Idealism claims the opposite. Neither of these philosophies has been proven, and yet models of the universe are constructed around both. Each model is convincing enough and has its loyal defenders. Both materialism and idealism explain the phenomenon of the world via philosophy, science and religion, and both are right and both are wrong in their own ways.”

The Magic Path of Intuition Quotes

“A harmonious person is never vibrating at the same rate as a germ.”

Florence Scovel Shinn
The Magic Path of Intuition

“A person who is low-spirited or inharmonious will contract a cold; a happy, fearless person will be immune to germs. For example, a woman goes out in cold weather in evening clothes – lightly clad – but is quite comfortable, for she feels she is looking well and is filled with anticipation for a happy evening. If the same woman is dressed in an unbecoming gown or in a bad humor, she will come back complaining of a cold and discomfort and have a cough the next day. A harmonious person is never vibrating at the same rate as a germ.”
