Right and Wrong Thinking and Their Results

Aaron Martin Crane

"The relation of thinking to every bodily action from the smallest to the greatest is that of cause to effect, therefore the same is true of the relation of thinking to health and disease. Harmonious thinking is the cause; health is the effect. Discordant thinking is the cause; disease is the effect. Each person has built as he would; each person may build as he will."

Right And Wrong Thinking was published in 1905 and is one of the earlier books in the field variously known as Mental Science, New Thought, or Law of Attraction. It was the first book by Aaron Martin Crane (1839-1914), published when he was 67, just nine years before his death. Crane was born in Vermont and served in the Vermont Calvary during the Civil War. He later served as an Internal Revenue agent in several cities around the country. After developing his philosophy through teaching classes and lecturing he decided to present it to a larger public by writing the book. Right And Wrong Thinking was well-received and he went on to publish a second book in 1910 dealing with what he called man’s inherent divine perfection, titled A Search After Ultimate Truth.
