Mind produces what is termed organic disease, as directly as it does hysteria, and cures it as readily; the demonstration we have given of this removes the question beyond cavil. We predicate this science on proof, and have not more evidence of our existence, than we have gained of the utter control mind holds over the entire organization and functions of the body. Through mind alone we have cured organic disease of the lungs, liver, heart, brains, bones, muscles, etc., that defied physiology and materia medica to heal.

The only satisfaction is in knowing God is with us. It silences grief and exterminates poverty. ‘Right alone is irresistible, permanent, and eternal.’ ‘Human pride forfeits spiritual power.’ (Mis. Writings) Mary Baker Eddy (Oakes, Richard, Course In Divinity and General Collectanea, p.265)
Take four hours each day for your reading, prayer and meditation
alone with God. Mary Baker Eddy (Oakes, Richard, Course In Divinity and General Collectanea, p.69)
Theory never built a church, never taught a class, never wrote the Christian Science textbook. Healing the sick is done by practice, not profession — by prayer and fasting from material sense. Mortal mind claims otherwise, but God is All, and there is no evil. Love rules, and you know it. Mary Baker Eddy, Collectanea of Items By and About Mary Baker Eddy, p.147)
“When we understand the truth of a lie, then we shall understand God, and not until then.” Mary Baker Eddy (Carpenter, Gilbert, 500 Watching Points, #288)
A student was watching Mrs. Eddy drive by. After she had gone, her five year old grandson, who was by her side, started to sob and to say, “I want to be good. I will never be bad again. When you call me I will come. I will do all you want me to do. I want to be a good boy.” Mary Baker Eddy (Carpenter, Gilbert, Fragments Gathered From Unpublished Items Ascribed to Mary Baker Eddy p.89)
Do not think of personality when protecting yourself or patients
as a rule. Think only of the all-absorbing Love that destroys all hate.
Realize the allness of Truth and good and the absence of error or evil.
Realize the right side, and only side. Oakes, Richard, Course In Divinity and General Collectanea, p.69)
Matter never represented God; geology cannot explain the earth, nor one of its formations, for these formations are dependent alone on Spirit, that gave them forth the eternal heavens, earth and man. Intelligence formed and peopled the universe. The scripture gives no record of solar light, until after time had been divided into day and night, and vegetation was formed; showing you light was the symbol of the Life-giving creator, and not a source of Life to the vegetable kingdom. (Eddy, Mary Baker, Science and Health, 1st ed., p.233)
