As A Man Thinketh
by James Allen
Narrated by Earl Nightingale
“As A Man Thinketh” is a literary essay by James Allen, published in 1902.
“Through most of time man’s control on the environment has been limited, but today this is no longer true. If a man thinks he might like to unmake the atom, he does. If he thinks of living in the depths of the oceans, going to the moon or voyaging in outer space, he does. The problem is no longer than what man can do, it becomes what man can think.” – Earl Nightingale
The outer world is shaped by inner thought.
