Regardless of where one decides to begin New Thought history, this approach can lead to wonderful and positive insights.

Jefferson understood that information is not wisdom. Wisdom comes from the ability to use information to discern compassionate solutions. Rote memorization of texts, including New Thought texts does not generate wisdom. The difference between training to accomplish a specific task and education is that a proper education enables a person to come up with solutions to enable the accomplishment of many tasks.
- “I feel… an ardent desire to see knowledge so disseminated through the mass of mankind that it may, at length, reach even the extremes of society: beggars and kings.” –Thomas Jefferson: Reply to American Philosophical Society, 1808.
- “The cornerstone of democracy rests on the foundation of an educated electorate.” – Thomas Jefferson
- “I know no safe depositary of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to inform their discretion by education. This is the true corrective of abuses of constitutional power.” –Thomas Jefferson to W. Jarvis, 1820.
- “The information of the people at large can alone make them the safe as they are the sole depositary of our political and religious freedom.” –Thomas Jefferson to William Duane, 1810.
The main purpose of the New Thought Library is not the physical collection of books or materials. We are building a multimedia archive of content which insures the preservation and transmission of the ideas or memes which support the liberation of the mind, body and soul. We continue to support the creation and maintenance of physical collections especially when these collections are archived in the NewThoughtLibrary.com system and are a public resource.
We are constantly improving access to New Thought books and teachings world wide. We do our work on a tithing and donation basis believing that together we are building a more compassionate world right now!
