James Allen often quoted Ella Wheeler Wilcox, saying:
"Mrs. Wilcox has been called "The greatest American living poet," and as a spiritual writer she certainly stands alone."
James Allen reviewed this book, saying:
"This book is marked by great purity of diction and sublime elevation of thought, and as an exponent of Righteousness and the true way to blessedness and noble achievement, it is simplicity itself. She deals, throughout, with the common everyday experiences of the individual, applying them to great, underlying principles, in language so simple and uninvolved that a child could understand her. Amongst other things she deals with "Old Clothes," "Obstacles," " Morning Influence," "Literature," "Dividends," "Heredity," "The Importance of Trifles," "Eternity," "Woman's Opportunity." We quote the following from the chapter on "Self-Conquest," as typical of the book:—"The man who wishes to control circumstances must love better things than money before he can succeed. He must love, and respect, and believe in his Creator, and trust the Divine Man with himself, and he must illustrate this love and trust by his daily conduct, and in his home circle, and in his business relations." This book can be ordered from the Savoy Publishing Co."
