I'm reading a book, and I came across the following quote by Horatius Bonar.
Think truly, and thy thoughts shall the world's famine feed.
Could anybody explain what it means?

I apologize for putting it so crudely before
It means that true (or right or clear) thinking will solve all problems…
It's almost an extension of Newtonian physics: start from true measurements, apply true thought and the outcome will be true.
That the famine won't be solved can be attributed to poor measurement of the initial conditions.
