…For there is no real bigness except in THOUGHT



Winsor McCay, 1930, originally uploaded by Alan Light.

The editorial caption underneath this cartoon reads:

“You see above a little man and some giants. The little man is really the BIG man and the giants are the LITTLE creatures. For there is no real bigness except in THOUGHT. Thought is in the brain, has no size, occupies no space. It is the mystery of mysteries, the only real power existing on earth. Thought cannot understand itself. Man does not know what it is. But what HE is depends on his power of thought. The last become first if they THINK HARD while they are the last. And the first are last if they lose the habit of thinking.”
