Think and Grow Rich-Chapter 1: The Man Who “Thought” His Way Into Partnership With Thomas A. Edison

For each chapter of Think and Grow Rich, I will share with you quotes that stood out to me while reading.

“I had learned from years of experience with men, that when a man really DESIRES a thing so deeply that he is willing to stake his entire future on a single turn of the wheel in order to get it, he is sure to win”

“It could not have been the young man’s appearance which got him his start in the Edison office, for that was definitely against him. It was what he THOUGHT that counted.”

DEFINITE MAJOR PURPOSE

“When one is truly ready for a thing, it puts in it appearance.”

“He was determined to remain ready until he got that which he was seeking”

DEFINITE PURPOSE

“When the opportunity it appeared in a different form, and from a different direction than Barnes expected.”

“…the greater asset he acquired in the form of definite knowledge that an intangible impulse of thought can be transmuted into its physical counterpart by the application of known principles”

“Barnes literally thought himself into a partnership with the great Edison!”

“He had nothing to start with, except the capacity to KNOW WHAT HE WANTED, AND THE DETERMINATION TO STAND BY THAT DESIRE UNTIL HE REALIZED IT”

“One of the most common causes of failure is the habit of quitting when one is overtaken by temporary defeat.”

“When you begin to THINK AND GROW RICH, you will observe that riches begin with a state of mind, with definiteness of purpose, with little or no hard work.”

“Success comes to those who become success conscious.”

“Failure comes to those who indifferently allow themselves to become failure conscious”
