If the word "Death," had never been known to human thought, or language, and some such term as "Passing to the New Life," had been adopted, crepe would have been a drug on the market, painful funeral discourses unheard of, and long, somber funeral processions unknown.

Thousands of human lives are blasted by negative goodness.

A little country boy whose mother everlastingly nagged him about being good, but whose father was ever telling him about the beautiful things in the city, ended his prayer with this: "O, God make me such a good boy, that when I die I can go to New York."

_One Hundredth Thousand_

Observe your opportunities to be kind. A little boy was sitting in his father's lap in the street car when a charming young lady entered, and as the little fellow observed there was no seat, he quickly jumped off his father's lap and said to the young lady, "please take my seat."

It is not wealth, or position that gives health and happiness.

A mighty Emperor was stricken with a malady; his court physicians gave him up to die. He called in his magicians and they told him if he would wear the shirt of a happy man he would recover. He ordered his kingdom searched for a happy man. They found him, up in the silent mountains, but alas, he had no shirt.

No, Satan did not bring the temptation to Eve instead of Adam, because woman was a weaker, and man a superior being. He brought the temptation to Eve because a woman isn't afraid of the Devil. If he had brought it to Adam, he would have been running yet.

Some people are so stupid in passive goodness, that their whole life wouldn't fill three feet of a moving picture reel.

This book is gratefully dedicated to the kindly memory of two eminent physicians, long since gone from this earth plane, who professionally observed my fourth physical eclipse by rheumatic fever; and who hopefully assured me, as I fluttered weakly from the shadow, that I could never pass thru it again. When I received their bills I was sure I could not.

If you are "A Self-Made Man," don't say too much about it, someone may suspect you "loafed on the job," and tell the Union.

Prayer should always prepare you for action. For example, little Willie was saying his prayer, and his sister, seeing his pink toes sticking out from under his nightie, tickled them. Willie grew red in the face and suddenly exclaimed: "O God, excuse me a minute while I get up and knock the stuffing out of Susie."

The Foreword

Life is self-realization. Every birth is divine. We are born anew every morning. My wish is that you may catch the gleam, be freed from limitations and enter upon your boundless possibilities. Your endowments are so rich and rare. There is no other person in the world just like you. You have genius, which, if it were brought forth into the sunlight, would glorify with brilliant inspiration a thousand lives. You have insight that, if it were energized, would make the desert blossom as the rose. You have initiative that once illuminated would create an empire fairer than any ever raised in marble. You have harmony lying latent in the vast octaves of your being, which if awakened into melody would sooth, comfort, restore, and purify the passions of a world. You have beauty, matchless in forms of grace, which if breathed into marble, or spread in soul colors upon the canvass would adorn the palaces of kings. You have thoughts which if given expression would burn and shine thru countless ages and bear their messages of hope and power to fainting multitudes.

To bring you into the throne-room of your being, that you may awaken in self-realization, is why I have prepared this course of lessons. Should you give five minutes a day to them, in a year you will know the joy there is in Life, in Power, and in Service.
