Think Hundred Thoughts is written to reminisce of the best that has been thought and said in this world, to brood over their timeless and profound meanings, and to let these thoughts guide us to think and speak and act with a pure mind so that happiness follows us as our shadows, unshakeable, reminding us that the true wealth of a nation lies not in its gold or silver but in its leaning, wisdom and in the uprightness of its people.
It is said that a person sows a thought and reaps an action…sows an action and reaps a habit…sows a habit and reaps a character…sows a character and reaps a destiny. The readers will find much useful wisdom in this book, gleaned as they are from varied and variegated sources, both ancient and modern, and be fascinated by their breadth and profundity as well as by their hidden and overt meanings and morals.
