I appreciate the contrast between virtue and vice. It clearly teaches that every good characteristic will produce good, that, though often mistaken, it was a vice or a weakness that caused one to fall.
One other principle was that of purpose + thought. When combined, your greatest capacities can come to life. In this constant creative state, I believe that living could be a constant euphoria.
All in all, the paramount principle is that one can harness his mind through thought and completely change his destiny. That which a man places at the core of his mind will come to fruition whether it be good or bad. Oh, let it be good!
This book is a quick read and may be well worth it.... could change your destiny.
"Man's mind may be likened to a garden, which may be intelligently cultivated or allowed to run wild; but whether cultivated or neglected, it must, and will, bring forth. If no useful seeds are put into it, then an abundance of useless weed-seeds will fall therein, and will continue to produce their kind. Just as a gardener cultivates his plot, keeping it free from weeds, and growing the flowers and fruits which he requires, so may a man tend the garden of his mind, weeding out all the wrong, useless, and impure thoughts, and cultivating toward perfection the flowers and fruits of right, useful, and pure thoughts. By pursuing this process, a man sooner or later discovers that he is the master-gardener of his soul, the director of his life."

I am now more conscious of my thoughts and pay attention to where my mind is. I am equally aware my thoughts have an enormous impact on my emotions and destiny. I learnt that I have the ability to exercise control over my thoughts through practise and diligence.
Also with a background in description, the words come off the pages and make clear how the suggestions of a fulfilled life can be achieved.
I would recommend this 52page book to young teens who need guidance in understanding peers and situations to come. I would recommend it also to anyone in a rock and a hard place. This could be the light at the end of your tunnel. Also, it is a book I think persons that do motivation, guidance and counselling, child care and teaching should invest time in reading...since the book is free.
It will be impactful on your continued growth and journey. I'm already looking forward to reading it again later in the year.
Small book but full of knowledge and very slow reading, worth the time.
Straight to the point without silly talking to fill up hundred of pages like other books.
I found the writing style hard to stick with, which lessened the enjoyment of the read. However if you enjoy an older writing style, or can persevere with it, then the message is strong and worthwhile. The book doesn't take too long to read, and definitely provides food for thought - maybe one to re-visit to re-enforce the ideas.
