A quote from: "The Power of the Spoken Word"
the writings of : Florence Scovel Shinn (1871-1940) compiled in 1945
"All life is vibration. You combine with what you notice, or you
combine with what you vibrate to. If you are vibrating to injustice
and resentment you will meet it on your pathway, at every step. You
will certainly think it is a hard world and that everybody is against
you. Hermes Trismegistus said several thousand years ago, "To change
your mood you must change your vibrations." I make it even stronger; I
say, to change your world, you must change your vibrations. Turn on a
different current in your battery of thought, and you'll see the
difference immediately. Suppose you have been resenting people and
saying you are not appreciated. Take the statement: "God appreciates
me, therefore, man appreciates me, I appreciate myself." Immediately
you will meet with some recognition on the external."
