Man alone, of all the creatures of earth, can change his own pattern. Man alone is architect of his destiny.

William James declared that the greatest revolution in his generation was the discovery that human beings, by changing the inner attitudes of their minds, can change the outer aspects of their lives.

History and literature are full of examples of the inner change. Do you know the Persian story of the hunchback prince who became straight and tall by standing each day before a statue of himself made straight?

Change requires the substituting of new habits for old. You mold your character and future by your thoughts and acts.

Change can be advanced by associating with men with whom you can walk among the stars.

Change can be inspired by selecting your own spiritual ancestors from among the great of all ages. You can practice the kindness of Lincoln, the devotion of Schweitzer, the vision of Franklin.

Change can be achieved by changing your environment. Let go of lower things and reach for the higher. Surround yourself with the best in books, music, and art.
