This book made a tremendous impact on my life. I want to share it with as many people as possible.
Millions of people approach adulthood every year, and can benefit from this classic. In my opinion, many more people will be able to read and understand it in this revised edition that I've created.
To improve readability, I’ve changed some archaic or less-known words to simpler words. I’ve also broken up extra long sentences, and made the text more personal by using “You” instead of the generic “Man”.
The original text of As A Man Thinketh is in the Public Domain. This is why I can revise the book and update it. Here are some changes I've made, in the revised version (from which I've pulled the quotes for this app).
1. Changed lesser-known words for simpler terms and explanations.
2. Split up really long sentences into shorter ones that are easier to read.
3. Changed it into conversational language using “You” instead of “Man”. This also changed it to less sexist language. Here is an example below:
For example, here is a sentence in the original.
A man is literally what he thinks, his character being the complete sum of all his thoughts.
In this new version, this sentence is changed into the following:
You are literally what you think, your character being the complete sum of all your thoughts.
Don't you think the new version of that sentence is more powerful?
Here below are some of the ideas I've included as quotes in the app:
You may imagine that thought can be kept secret, but it cannot. Thought rapidly crystallizes into habit, and habit solidifies into circumstance.
The “fine matter” of thought really does crystallize into the denser matter of the “material” world. Here are some examples to think about.
Lustful thoughts crystallize into habits of drunkenness and sensuality. These habits then solidify into circumstances of destitution and disease.
Impure thoughts crystallize into weak and confusing habits. These habits then solidify into distracting and adverse circumstances.
Thoughts of fear and indecision crystallize into timid and cowardly habits. These habits solidify into circumstances of failure and poverty.
Lazy thoughts crystallize into habits of dirtiness and dishonesty. Then these habits solidify into circumstances of foulness and betrayal.
Hateful and condemning thoughts crystallize into habits of accusation and violence. These habits solidify, manifesting circumstances of injury and persecution.
Selfish thoughts of all kinds crystallize into habits of self-seeking. These habits of selfishness solidify into painful circumstances.
On the other hand, beautiful thoughts of all kinds crystallize into habits of grace and kindness. Then these kind habits solidify into pleasant and sunny circumstances.
Pure thoughts crystallize into habits of moderation and self- control. These habits solidify into restful circumstances of serenity and peace.
Thoughts of courage and decision crystallize into strong and decisive habits. These habits then solidify into circumstances of success and freedom.
Energetic thoughts crystallize into habits of cleanliness and industry. These habits solidify into circumstances of beauty and achievement.
Gentle and forgiving thoughts crystallize into tender habits. These habits then solidify into safe and protective circumstances.
Loving thoughts crystallize into warm and charitable habits. These habits solidify into circumstances of abiding prosperity and true riches.
Enjoy the app! These thoughts can change your life.

Great selection of quotes from one of the best books ever written. It’s nice to look at every day to give myself a quote for the day. It would be nice if there was a shuffle button, so I could read quotes at random, instead of always starting at quote #1
This is a pretty sweet app! Although there are a lot of big words, the tips are still very comprehensive, and the pictures in the background are awesome.
