Catherine Ponder quotes

Catherine Ponder quotes about prosperity

  1. The desire to be self-supporting and financially independent is a divine desire.
  2. The shocking truth about prosperity is that it is shockingly right instead of shockingly wrong for you to be prosperous. Please note that the word ‘rich’ means having an abundance of good or living a fuller, more satisfying life. Indeed, you are prosperous to the degree that you are experiencing peace, health, happiness and plenty in your world. There are honorable methods that can carry you quickly toward that goal. It is easier to accomplish than you may now think. That, too, is the shocking truth about prosperity.
  3. Some authorities believe that one prosperous thought is more powerful than a thousand failure thoughts; and that two prosperous attitudes steadily held and expressed are more powerful than ten thousand failure attitudes!
  4. If you have unfilled dreams and visions of greater prosperity and success tucked in a corner of your mind, don’t keep them there any longer. Dare to bring them out and dust them off.
  5. Why settle for so little in life when you can have so much just by daring to be different in your thinking.
  6. Realize that your dreams of financial independence have already come true on the mental plane, by the time you desire them or become aware of them.
  7. When you realize that prosperity is your divine heritage, you should persist in claiming it.
  8. Let there be peace within my walls and prosperity within my palaces.
  9. When you realize that prosperity is your divine heritage, you should persist in claiming it.
  10. Poverty is a form of hell caused by man’s blindness to God’s unlimited good for him. You should be prosperous, well supplied and have abundance of good because it is your divine heritage. Your creator wants you that way.
  11. If you want greater prosperity in your life, start forming a vacuum to receive it.

Catherine Ponder quotes about life

  1. It has been said that work is the highest form of play.
  2. Whatever your problem, it is but a test in love. If you meet that test through love, your problem will be solved. If you do not meet that test through love, your problem will continue until you do! Your problem is your initiation in love.
  3. Everything in your world is filled with intelligence, even the so-called inanimate objects. Treat them intelligently if you wish to obtain intelligent, harmonious results.
  4. If people only knew the healing power of laughter and joy, many of our fine doctors would be out of business. Joy is one of nature’s greatest medicines. Joy is always healthy. A pleasant state of mind tends to bring abnormal conditions back to normal.
  5. Nature does abhor a vacuum, and when you begin moving out of your life what you do not want, you automatically are making way for what you do want. By letting go of the lesser, you automatically make room for your greater good to come in.
  6. What you praise you increase.
  7. Mental and spiritual laws are so powerful that they can be used to multiply, neutralize, or even reverse natural laws!
  8. We should praise the qualities we would like to see in others, declare that others possess them already, and then watch how quickly these persons will respond.
  9. It is through the imagination that the formless takes form.
  10. Your ships come in only after you have sent them out.
  11. A complete revaluation takes place in your physical and mental being when you’ve laughed and had some fun.
  12. What you radiate outward in your thoughts, feelings, mental pictures and words, you attract into your life.
  13. Failure is nothing but success trying to be born in a bigger way. Most seeming failures are just installments toward victory!
  14. Whatever the mind is taught to expect, that it will build, produce, and bring forth for you.
  15. If you think a complimentary thought about someone, don’t just think it. Dare to compliment people and pass on compliments to them from others.
  16. Thoughts of your mind have made you what you are and thoughts of your mind will make you what you become from this day forward.

Catherine Ponder quotes about persistence

  1. Through persistence, you can be one of those happy, victorious people who not only chases dreams, but who catches them! The persistent man also perseveres long enough for his dreams to catch up with him!
  2. Persistence is a characteristic to which success invariably surrenders.
  3. Often, failure is success trying to be born in a bigger way, and persistence helps you to experience that greater result.

Catherine Ponder quotes about giving

  1. Your giving is sacred and therefore should be kept secret. It is wise to give quietly with no strings attached.
  2. Just as it is necessary to breathe out regularly in order to receive fresh air into the lungs, so it is necessary to give regularly if we wish to receive regularly.
  3. Giving is only one-half of the law of increase. Receiving is the other half. We can give and give but we may unbalance the law unless we also expect to receive.

Catherine Ponder quotes about forgiving

  1. When you hold resentment toward another, you are bound to that person or condition by an emotional link that is stronger than steel. Forgiveness is the only way to dissolve that link and get free.
  2. The forgiving state of mind is a magnetic power for attracting good.
  3. Forgiveness is all-powerful. Forgiveness heals all ills.

Catherine Ponder quotes about attitude

  1. If outer doors close seem to close to you, do not hesitate. Persist in inner preparations. The inner realm of thought controls all outer action. When you get the right attitude, the outer world of results and personalities must conform to it. That is the law of mind-action.
  2. One positive statement of good is more powerful than 1,000 negative thoughts; and two positive statements of good are more powerful than 10,000 negative thoughts.

Catherine Ponder quotes about our souls

  1. When people bother you in any way, it is because their souls are trying to get your divine attention and your blessing.
  2. It is easy to speak words of love, or to meditate lovingly upon those people with whom you are in harmony. But it is those people who seem most difficult, who may even seem hostile, that need your radiation of love most. Their very hostility is but their soul’s cry for loving recognition. When you generate sufficient love to them, the discord will fade away.
  3. There are sacred moments in life when we experience in rational and very direct ways that separation, the boundary between ourselves and other people and between ourselves and Nature, is illusion. Oneness is reality. We can experience that stasis is illusory and that reality is continual flux and change on very subtle and also on gross levels of perception. When people bother you in any way, it is because their souls are trying to get your divine attention and your blessing.
