In "Miscellaneous Writings" by Mrs. Eddy, she says, on page 219: "It is admitted that mortals think wickedly and act wickedly: it is beginning to be seen by thinkers, that mortals think also after a sickly fashion."

About six weeks ago I had the privilege of putting this logic to the test. I am now living in Seattle, my people are at Port Townsend, about four hours' journey, or a distance of thirty-nine miles. During the holidays I made a visit home. The weather had been quite stormy, but this particular morning the wind was blowing a gale and the sea was very rough. The boat rocked as it lay at the wharf. As the passengers came on board, they would say, especially the ladies, "Oh, I know I shall be seasick!" and begin to relate previous experiences of that nature, thus thinking after a sickly fashion. I found I had all I could do to correct in my own thought their assertions, and prevent their taking lodgement with me; for I, too, had always suffered from seasickness when on rough water.
