Before walking into a store and buying a book to read especially when it comes to Self-Help ones, I habitually do this one thing. I go online and check the recommendations and reviews and make my decision accordingly.

In my defense, there are so many awe-inspiring books out there which makes it hard to settle on a specific one. If it is so for me, I am sure you guys too need help with such a decision.

When it comes to self-improvement books, one of the top referred book is the one written by Napoleon Hill – THINK AND GROW RICH. Having read too many books on self-help and inspiration, I would say this one is definitely worth the read and it will certainly make you THINK. 

Here are some of the very evocative quotes from this book which would definitely capture your attention.

1. My Wage

I worked for a menial’s hire,

Only to learn dismayed,

That any wage I had asked of Life,

Life would have willingly paid

J.B. Rittenhouse

2. Thinking: The Man Who Thinks He Can

Life’s battles don’t always go

To the stronger or faster man,

But soon or late the man who wins


Walter D. Wintle

3. Both Success and Failure are largely the results of HABIT

4. Man’s only limitation, within reason, lies in his development and use of his imagination

5. FAILURE cannot cope up with PERSISTENCE

6. Indecision and procrastination are twin brothers. Concentrate all your efforts on one

7. It is one thing to want money, everyone wants more but it is something entirely different to be WORTH MORE

8. Genuine wisdom is usually conspicuous through modesty and silence

9. Deeds and not words are what counts most

10. Definiteness of decision always requires courage, sometimes more courage

11. The basis of Persistence is the POWER OF WILL

12. Will power and desire when properly combined make an irresistible pair

13. Every failure brings with it the seed of an equivalent knowledge

14. Riches do not respond to wishes. They respond only to definite plans backed by definite desires, through CONSISTENT PERSISTENCE

15. There is no road to genius than through voluntary self-effort

16. Man’s greatest motivating force is his desire to please a woman

17. Fortunate is the husband whose wife understands the true relationship between emotions of love, sex and romance

18. The women who understand man’s nature and tactfully caters to it need no fear of competition from other women  

19. No man is happy or complete without the modifying influence of the RIGHT WOMAN

20. Positive and negative emotions cannot occupy the mind at the same time. One or the other must dominate

21. FAITH and FEAR make poor bedfellows. Where one is found, the other cannot exist

22. Employers who understand human nature, get the best there is in men, not by criticism but by a constructive suggestion

23. Do not expect troubles as they have a tendency to disappoint

24. Mind control is the result of self discipline and habit. You either control your mind or it controls you. There is no halfway compromise

25. The first and the best victory is to conquer SELF. To be conquered by self is, of all things, the most shameful and vile

Let me tell you, this book is full of knowledge and the above mentioned would only be the preview of the same.

I would highly recommend this book and I do hope you enjoy it as much as I did if not more.
