‘It is advantageous to have a primary, goal in life. It becomes the focus of our mental powers. However, if the line of mental vision is too narrow, we exclude those observations and experiences and thoughts that could cause the final goal to be far more gratifying.'
Truth is what is real to us. Knowledge and experience are the materials of which truth consists. But what is the real, the truth of what we know.
Through the Mind's Eye is a collection of challenging thoughts, of past ideas, whose effects we now experience and perhaps live by, and also those ideas which we confront today. The book is concerned, too, with speculation about how our thought and action should be directed toward the onrushing tomorrow.
“It is not what men believe that matters, but what actions emerge from their beliefs.”
