-Excerpt from "James Allen’s Book of Meditations for Every Day in the Year" (1913)

More of the work of James Allen can be found at:

James Allen (28 November 1864 – 24 January 1912) was a British philosophical writer known for his inspirational books and poetry and as a pioneer of the self-help movement. His best known work, As a Man Thinketh, has been mass-produced since its publication in 1903. It has been a source of inspiration to motivational and self-help authors.


Malice, animosity and hatred only those who are hostile and follow a path of enmity. Those who are righteous have nothing to fear and they are truly pure and invincible to this hatred as they are not inclined to take account of it.

Thanks for your comment, @arckrai.

I totally agree. When a person is true and has nothing to hide, he will be upright, look in the eyes and fear none. Such people are enlightened ones. They are not afraid of speaking of their heart desires and are not shamed by the narrow minded judgements of the society.

I was waiting for today's excerpt, and here you are. It is already night here in India, is it the start of the day at your place?

I tend to post in the early morning, sometimes as early as 12am to 1am. On my weekends I'm working, so it is a bit more irregular due to work commitments.

The righteous are judged by their actions and the wicked by their thoughts. Our architecture is the same differentiated by actions and thoughts that drive us to be who we are. Thank you for the inspiration.

It is my pleasure to serve. Thank you for your patronage.

These dailies are pretty awesome! !

Keep 'em coming Sir!


Genius, how I never heard of him before is beyond me

Yes, I only discovered him myself a few years ago through his most famous publication 'As A Man Thinketh', which I purchased as an audiobook.

It was only this year that I began to really expand my reading of his works and I discovered a much deeper understanding of his philosophy.

True words !!

Good will never be overcomed by evil !

I'm a big believer in that. I've had people try to make me believe otherwise, but they were just purveyors of fear.
