Meditation is that exercise of the mind by which it recalls a known truth,--as some kinds of creatures do their food; to be ruminated upon.
A purified mind can grasp anything. It can dive deep into the subtlest subject and understand even transcendental things.
Still the bubbling mind; herein lies freedom and bliss eternal.
But if the elephant of my mind is firmly bound
On all sides by the rope of mindfulness,
All fears will cease to exist
And all virtues will come into my hand.
Will all be bound By binding my mind alone. And will all be subdued By subduing my mind alone.
The Perfect Teacher himself has shown
That in this way all fears
As well as all boundless miseries
Originate from the mind
It is not possible for me To restrain the external course of things;But should I restrain this mind of mine What would be the need to restrain all else ?
Even those who wish to find happiness and overcome misery
Will wander with no aim nor meaning
If they do not comprehend the secret of the mind-
The paramount significance of Dharma.
War destroys men, but luxury destroys mankind; at once corrupts the body and the mind.
Possessions, outward success, publicity, luxury--to me these have always been contemptible. I believe that a simple and unassuming manner of life is best for every one, best for both the body and the mind.

I guess there is nothing that will get your mind off everything like golf. I have never been depressed enough to take up the game, but they say you get so sore at yourself you forget to hate your enemies
No other game combines the wonder of nature with the discipline of sport in such carefully planned ways. A great golf course both frees and challenges a golfer's mind
Always keep in mind that if God didn't want a man to have mulligans, golf balls wouldn't come three to a sleeve
I guess there is nothing that will get your mind off everything like golf will. I have never been depressed enough to take up the game, but they say you can get so sore at yourself that you forget to hate you enemies.
For it is a land of illusion, a place in the mind, a shimmering mirage of riches and mystery and death. These illusions have distorted its landscape and contorted its history
Toleration is the greatest gift of the mind; it requires the same effort of the brain that it takes to balance oneself on a bicycle.
Time is indeed the theater and seat of illusions; nothing is so ductile and elastic. The mind stretches an hour to a century, and dwarfs an age to an hour.
You shine very brightly in my heart, and in my mind. Small little
truths that I either have to accept or dispel. You will always be safe
in my heart, no matter how dark the rest of it may become.
You will always shine bright. Stand out among the rest. This much I know.
The word love can be explained in thousands of ways, but the only word that comes to my mind is you.
Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind; And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind.
You have powers you never dreamed of. You can do things you never thought you could do. There are no limitations in what you can do except the limitations of your own mind
Man's mind is like a store of idolatry and superstition; so much so that if a man believes his own mind it is certain that he will forsake God and forge some idol in his own brain.
Worry is a thin stream of fear trickling through the mind. If encouraged, it cuts a channel into which all other thoughts are drained
I keep the telephone of my mind open to peace, harmony, health, love and abundance. Then, whenever doubt, anxiety or fear try to call me, they keep getting a busy signal - and soon they'll forget my number
