Dealers in New Thought say, "Take this only as it appeals to you as your own - accept it all, or in part, or reject it all - and in any event, do not believe it merely because I say so."

Secondhand Thought is founded on authority, and its war-cry is, "Pay and Obey."

Elbert Hubbard from his essay on Hypatia.
