      A 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. He also reveals, within
      himself, the laws of thought, and understands with
      ever-increasing accuracy, how the thought forces and
      mind elements operate in the shaping of his character,
      circumstances, and destiny.
