The Path of Prosperity

by James Allen

"I looked around upon the world, and saw that it was shadowed by sorrow and scorched by the fierce fires of suffering. And I looked for the cause. I looked around, but could not find it; I looked in books, but could not find it; I looked within, and found there both the cause and the self-made nature of that cause. I looked again, and deeper, and found the remedy. I found one Law, the Law of Love; one Life, the Life of adjustment to that Law; one Truth, the truth of a conquered mind and a quiet and obedient heart." James Allen's inquiry within became The Path of Prosperity, first published in 1901 and still valued today as a guiding light for people to find within themselves the source of success, happiness, and accomplishment.
