Quote #18, My Thoughts and YOUR thoughts

I love Quotes. I love them because they make me think.What does the quoter mean? Why did he/she write this? Is there a message to get through to the reader/the world? What did YOU initially think when you read it?

Here goes blog quote #18....

"What is planted in the mind will infallibly be grown into the condition of life. The soil doesn't care whether the seeds are weeds or flowers. It will render what is planted."

-James Allen, author, As a Man Thinketh-

Allen is saying that Life is totally an extention of thought. What you feed your mind will ultimately be coming back out of you. Positive thoughts produce positive results. Negative thoughts return negative conclusions.

How about you...Do you listen to positive messages? What kind of literature are you reading( and FEEDING YOUR NOGGIN)? Is it good-spirited, motivational stuff, or negative junk? What TV and movies do you tend to watch. Here is a very important question.. What kind of people do you surround yourself with? Are they
lifting you up or are they a strain and a drain on your brain?

Ever hears the saying "Garbage In, Garbage Out"? Kudos to whomever coined it as it's dead square on. Perhaps Mr Allen's classic "As a Man Thinketh"( published in 1902, millions sold) is worth a read?

Thats my view.....WHAT SAY YOU?

Here's a poem - maybe you've heard of it? It was written by Amelia Drake, entitled,
"One Kind Word"
Drop a pebble in the water - just a splash, and it is gone.
But there's half a hundred ripples,
Circling on and on and on.
Spreading slowly from the center, flowing on out toward the sea,
And there is no way of telling
Where the end is going to be.

Drop a word of cheer and kindness -
Just a flash and it is gone.
But there's half a hundred ripples
Circling on and on and on.
Bearing hope and joy and comfort,
on each restless moving wave
Til you can't believe the volume
of the one kind word you gave.
And you've rolled a wave of comfort
Where that echo can be heard
Over miles and miles of water
Just by dropping one kind word.
