And now for something rather different…

Sourcesense’ looks being like a rather different conductor’s blog

Fresh on the Internet, only today, is a new blog, Sourcesense, written by conductor Judit Szathmáry of Conductive Education Support Services and Szathmáry Training and Consultancy, and based in the New Forest, Hampshire, England.

The first posting is a link to the complete text of the book, As a man thinketh, by James Allen, a pioneer publication in what has become the ‘personal development’ movement.

The title of the book comes from James Allen’s gentle aphorism ‘As a man thinketh in his heart so is he’ (which for me evokes Kurt Vonnegut’s later, brusker and more minatory ‘We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful what we pretend to be').

As a man thinketh
Free copies of this classic self-improvement work are widely flagged on the Internet, like on Sourcesence, as a free download. Alternatively, one may obtain a hard copy, free of charge, from a number of sources, for example:
