New Thought Common Sense & What Life Means to Me by Ella Wheeler Wilcox. Originally published in 1908. Inspirational reading. The philosophy of New Thought is not new; it has not one original idea, but is a simplified and practical form of a very ponderous and wonderful religion. It makes an application to the everyday needs of modern life, of principles and ideas, which the ancients used only for the few who chose the life of adepts. Edited by Rev. Lux Newman, 2011.
