Product Information

James Allen (1864-1912) was a philosophical writer of British nationality known for his inspirational books and poetry. Allen's books describe the use of the power of thought to increase personal capabilities. Many of them remain in print today, including As a Man Thinketh (Allen's most famous work), Above Life's Turmoil, Byways to Blessedness, The Mastery of Destiny, The Path of Prosperity, The Way of Peace. These books have stood the test of time and are still as relevant as when they were first published 100 years ago, and are now considered self-help classics.

Book Excerpt:

Along the highways of Burma there is placed, at regular distances away from the dust of the road, and under the cool shade of a group of trees, a small wooden building called a "rest-house", where the weary traveller may rest a while, and allay his thirst and assuage his hunger and fatigue by partaking of the food and water which the kindly inhabitants place there as a religious duty.

Along the great highway of life there are such resting places; away from the heat of passion and the dust of disappointment, under the cool and refreshing shade of lowly Wisdom, are the humble, unimposing "rest-houses" of peace, and the little, almost unnoticed, byways of blessedness, where alone the weary and footsore can find strength and healing.
