Christian D. Larson (1874 – 1962) was a New Thought leader and teacher, as well as a prolific author of metaphysical and New Thought books. He is credited by Horatio Dresser as being a founder in the New Thought movement.  Many of Larson’s books remain in print today, nearly 100 years after they were first published, and his writings influenced notable New Thought authors and leaders, including Religious Science founder, Ernest Holmes.

Larson, of Norwegian origin, was born in Iowa and attended Iowa State College and a Unitarian theological school in Meadville, PA.  While little is known about his personal life and what led to his studies in mental science, what is known is its logical teachings appealed to Larson’s analytical mind and led him to discover that combining theology and science could provide a practical and systematic philosophy of life.  During his time he was honorary president of the International New Thought Alliance and lectured extensively during the 1920s and 1930s. He was a colleague of such notables as William Walker Atkinson, Charles Brodie Patterson, and Home of Truth founder Annie Rix Militz. He developed the Optimist Creed in use today by Optimist International, better known as the Optimist Clubs.

He married wife Georgea L DuBois on February 14, 1918. They had two children, Louise DuBois Larson (born 1920) and Christian D. Larson Jr. (born 1924). The family lived in Beverly Hills for many years.

The Classic Pamela Positive: The Top Thing Everyone Loves

 

 

“Smiling is Free”

– Dove Love

 

 

Two Brown Cookies

 

 

It’s one of the greatest things.

 

Don’t forget to do this.

 

Everyone loves this.

 

And even if they are having a really really bad day — if you smile at them — they will smile back at you, simply by reflex.

Bring some peace to someone’s troubled heart today. I am leaving work now, and with a smile.

 

Goodnight!

Dove Chocolate, sold as Galaxy in other countries, is a Mars Company owned and operated brand of chocolate that is virtually in all supermarkets and convenience stores across the US. They are well known for their silky and smooth texture and are well liked. However, what makes each chocolate special is the addition of a quote inside each of their wrappers, which has attracted both praise and critique from many consumers.

 

Dove Chocolate messages like “Believe in yourself,” and “Make the most of everyday,” and others dealing with hope, mindfulness, and inspiration, bring positivity to the life of the reader. However, some people feel that sayings like “Too much of a good thing is still wonderful,” and “Do what feels right,” are misleading and maybe giving people bad advice, and have been poking fun at the wrapper messages. You can take a look at photos of their wrappers by clicking here and you can read a compilation of their messages here.

“Margaret Dulany “Peggy” Rockefeller (born 1947) is a philanthropist and the fourth child of David Rockefeller and Margaret McGrath. She is a fourth-generation member (“the cousins”) of the Rockefeller family. She is extremely committed to family and a proud grandparent…

Her most influential impact on the world is as founder and chair of the Synergos Institute, which she established in New York in 1986. The mission of the organization is to work together with its partners to “mobilize resources and bridge social and economic divides to reduce poverty and increase equity around the world”. Its most prominent public event, the “University for a Night“, brings together senior leaders from government, business and civil society in a positive dialogue on inter-sector collaboration and problem solving. She is relentlessly devoted to serving the world, traveling on service projects and site visits in the Middle East, U.K., Cuba, New York and California. She lives her mission and values everyday.” (Source: Wikipedia)
