Fixed attitudes of mind determine courses of conduct, and from courses of conduct come those reactions called happiness and unhappinesses. This being so, it follows that to alter the reactive condition, one must alter the active though.
To exchange misery for happiness it is necessary to reverse the fixed attitude of mind and habitual course of conduct which is the cause of misery, and the reverse effect will appear in the mind and life.
A man has no power to be happy while thinking and acting selfishly; he cannot be unhappy while thinking and acting unselfishly.
Wheresoever the cause is, there the effect will appear. Man cannot abrogate effects, but he can alter causes. He can purify his nature; he can reshape his character.

Word of the week – Self-conquest – the act or an instance of conquering or the state of having been conquered; victory.
