Wallace D. Wattles quotes page 2

It is really not the number of things you do, but the efficiency of each separate action that
counts.
Wallace D. Wattles

Man is a thinking center, and can originate thought. All the forms that man fashions with his
hands must first exist in his thought; he cannot shape a thing until he has thought that
thing. And so far man has confined his efforts wholly to the work of his hands; he has applied
manual labor to the world of forms, seeking to change or modify those already existing. He
has never thought of trying to cause the creation of new forms by impressing his thoughts
upon Formless Substance.
Wallace D. Wattles

To learn how to make every thought and action constructive, is to master the secret of all
attainment.
Wallace D. Wattles

A man's way of doing things is the direct result of the way he thinks about things. To do
things in a way you want to do them, you will have to acquire the ability to think the way
you want to think; this is the first step toward getting rich.
Wallace D. Wattles

Give every man more in use value than you take from him in cash value; then you are adding
to the life of the world by every business transaction.
Wallace D. Wattles

Do not tell of your past troubles of a financial nature, if you have had them, do not think of
them at all. Do not tell of the poverty of your parents, or the hardships of your early life; to
do any of these things is to mentally class yourself with the poor for the time being, and it will
certainly check the movement of things in your direction.
Wallace D. Wattles

You wil see that it is a self-evident proposition that if you do not do any inefficient acts, and
if you do a sufficient number of efficient acts, you will become rich. If, now, it is possible for
you to make each act an efficient one, you see again that the getting of riches is reduced to
an exact science, like mathematics.
Wallace D. Wattles

The conceited person is one who holds himself to be better than others; the truly modest
person is one who exalts himself, while admitting that everybody else is as good, and as
great as he. That is the true way to love your neighbor as yourself; simply admit that he is
as good as you are. There is no other way that I know of.
Wallace D. Wattles
