Epigrams of B.J. Palmer

“Better to light one candle than to curse the darkness.”
“He that bloweth not his own horn, for him shall no horn be blown.”
“Sick people pray for power when thru us would flow a universal power if we would permit it.”
“Be sure you’re right – then force the fight.”

“Why these epigrams?
What is before you, is seen.
What is being seen, is read.
What is being read, is thot.
What is being thot, is acted.
What is acted, is YOU.”
