Florence Scovel Shinn quotes page 2

Never argue with a hunch.
Florence Scovel Shinn

Man must ever hold the vision of his journey's end and demand the manifestation of that
which he has already received. It may be his perfect health, love, supply, self-expression,
home or friends. They are all finished and perfect ideas registered in Divine Mind (man's own
superconscious mind) and must come through him, not to him.
Florence Scovel Shinn

I am asked, so often by my students, "How can I get rid of fear?" I reply, "By walking up to
the thing you are afraid of."
Florence Scovel Shinn

Anger blurs the vision, poisons the blood, is the root of many diseases, and causes wrong
decision leading to failure.
Florence Scovel Shinn

People are sometimes filled with remorse for having done someone an unkindness, perhaps
years ago. If the wrong cannot be righted, its effect can be neutralized by doing someone a
kindness in the present.
Florence Scovel Shinn

Real love is selfless and free from fear. It pours itself out upon the object of its affection,
without demanding any return. Its joy is in the joy of giving.
Florence Scovel Shinn

The student's goal is poise! Poise is power, for it gives God-Power a chance to rush through
man, to "will and to do Its good pleasure." Poised, he thinks clearly, and makes "right
decisions quickly."
Florence Scovel Shinn

Florence Scovel Shinn

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 has owed his success to a wife, or
sister, or a friend who "believed in him" and held without wavering to the perfect pattern!
Florence Scovel Shinn

You can control any situation if you first control yourself.
Florence Scovel Shinn

The children of Israel were told that they could have all the land they could see. This is true
of every man. He has only the land within his own mental vision. Every great work, every big
accomplishment, has been brought into manifestation through holding to the vision, and often
just before the big achievement, comes apparent failure and discouragement.
Florence Scovel Shinn

Someone has said that courage contains genius and magic. Face a situation fearlessly, and
there is no situation to face; it falls away of its own weight.
Florence Scovel Shinn

Any inharmony on the external, indicates there is mental inharmony. "As the within, so the
without." Man's only enemies are within himself.
Florence Scovel Shinn

Happiness and health must be earned by absolute control of the emotional nature.
Florence Scovel Shinn

Before Columbus reached America, he saw birds and twigs which showed him land was near.
So it is with a demonstration; but often the student mistakes it for the demonstration itself,
and is disappointed.
Florence Scovel Shinn

I have often been asked why one man is born rich and healthy, and another poor and sick.
Where there is an effect there is always a cause; there is no such thing as chance. This
question is answered throught he law of reincarnation. Man goes through many births and
deaths, until he knows the truth which sets him free. He is drawn back to the earth plane
through unsatisfied desire, to pay his Karmic debts, or to "fulfill his destiny." The man born rich
and healthy has had pictures in his subconscious mind, in his past life, of health and riches;
and the poor and sick man, of disease and poverty. Man manifests, on any plane, the sum
total of his subconscious beliefs.
Florence Scovel Shinn

"Whatsoever a man soweth that shall he also reap." This means that whatever man sends out
in word or deed, will return to him; what he gives, he will receive.
Florence Scovel Shinn

If a man wishes someone "bad luck," he is sure to attract bad luck himself. If he wishes to aid
someone to success, he is wishing and aiding himself to success.
Florence Scovel Shinn

God is the Giver and the Gift.
