"There is good reason for believing that insanity is simply a condition of differentiation in the mass-chords of the convolutions, which creates an antagonistic molecular bombardment towards the neutral or attractive centres of such convolutions." [Vibratory Physics - The Connecting Link between Mind and Matter]
The Standard calls attention to the fact that Lord Rosebery has pointed out how fast mental disease of one form or another is growing among the populations of London - so fast that a new asylum, containing 5000 patients, must be built every five years.

"When we take into consideration the effect upon the nerves, in sensitive organizations, of living in the vicinity of railways, more especially of the elevated railways in cities, the incessant jarring vibrations which are communicated to houses, even from underground railways, to say nothing of the piercing shrieks of the steam whistle, is it to be wondered at that mental disorders and nervous diseases are on the increase? With this increase of the most terrible form of affliction the remedy will follow; for our necessities are known to One who "with a Father's care and affectionate attention supplies the wants, as they arise, of the worlds which lie like children in His bosom." Sympathetic Vibratory Physics will, in due time, make known the curableness of many disorders now considered incurable." [Vibratory Physics - The Connecting Link between Mind and Matter]
"Insanity consists in some little discord that might be corrected if the person knew it; it is brought on by the disturbance of the world's opinion." [Quimby, The Complete Writings, A Case: A Divorced Lady (part of original: ABOUT PATIENTS)]
