4 "Study your daily conduct and words and thoughts so as to make them utterly harmless. Set yourself to think those thoughts about yourself and others which will be constructive and positive, and hence harmless in their effects."

Realize that the One Life pervades all forms so that there is no death, no distress, no separation."

6 "If men carried the concept of brotherhood with all its implications into the life and work of every day, whether between the capitalist and the labourer, the politician and the people, between nation and nation, or between race and race, there would emerge that peace on earth which nothing could upset or overturn."

11 "We need to realize more deeply that the whole process is a divine one, and that evil, so called, is but an illusion and an inherent part of duality, giving place in time and out of time to a divine reality. Evil is due to wrong perception and erroneous interpretation of that which is perceived."

12 "The Delphic injunction 'Man, know thyself' was an inspired utterance, intended to give man the clue to the mystery of deity."

13 "The thoughts of men have ever been religious. There has never been a time when religion or the thoughts of men about God, about the infinite, and about the Life which has brought all into being has not been present."

14 "Intuitional illumination is the present goal of consciousness."

15 "The law of the universe is the law of love."

16 "Love breaks down every barrier, and fuses diverse groups in union….Love gathers all to itself, and carries all on with itself, welding separated units into a unified homogeneous whole."

17 "The heart of humanity is sound and out of the present chaos and perhaps largely because of it, there will emerge those competent to deal with the situation and adequate to the task of unification and synthesis."

19 "The One Existence has brought the phenomenal world into being."

20 "Through humanity, the nature of reality will be revealed; the true and the beautiful will be manifested; the divine plan will eventually work out, and that energy be transmitted to all forms in nature which will enable the inner spiritual reality to emerge."

21 "That the inner vision may be ours, the eye see clearly the glory of the Lord, and the voice speak only in benediction, and the hands be used only in helpfulness, may well be the prayer of each of us."

22 "All forms are…externalizations of the one Infinite Being."

23 "One of the main necessities…at this time is to endeavour to think in terms of the one Reality."
