Mind Quotes

It seems silly and churlish to attack others for their private beliefs, unless one is entirely convinced of the greater view that harm is caused by the persistence of that belief in society; but when pressed into engaging on the matter, I recall the question I asked myself many times until I found my own faith breaking down: Bearing in mind we can all utterly convince ourselves of things that are not true and that therefore important truths about the universe must surely always be based on more solid foundations than what my easily fooled, fickle feelings tell me what is it that supports this belief other than my own already-existing conviction?

Well, welcome to your very own DVD of me, DVB, and Mind Control. If you werent expecting me and thought you were buying Reginald Perrin, then press eject now before you begin vomiting. Otherwise, please, please ensure that you are sitting in an extreme level of comfort, preferably in pre-worn slippers and, I trust, with your extended family around you. If you have seen the film Signs and would like to wear the pointy tin foil hats now would be a good time to put them on you cant be too careful. Well, pphhh, goodness me, er, its been a meteoric rise over these last years. The money and sex are exhausting and I have you the viewer to thank. Thanks. Weve put together some of the pieces from the specials and series in glistening digital format, each pixel hand picked and gently polished and brought to you in wide-sound, surround-screen enjoyment. I hope you enjoy watching them as much as Ill enjoy the royalties from this, which is enormously. If you dont like it and HMV wont take it back because youve got sticky all over it then the disc makes an excellent beer coaster or wheels for a space truck or can be immense fun just putting it on your finger and [waggling it], like that. But I hope you do like it. When I first started developing these techniques I had no idea that they were going to prove at all popular and for all my nancing about and staring Im actually really excited to have a DVD out and cant wait to go and find it in Discount Books & Puzzles next to the Dizzie Gillespie CD box sets and disappointing erotica. I hope you like it and if you do, please go and buy another one.

I mind as if it were yesterday my first sight of the man. Little I knew at the time how big the moment was with destiny, or how often that face seen in the fitful moonlight would haunt my sleep and disturb my waking hours.

John Buchan, 1st Baron Tweedsmuir

This crowded world of Space was perfectly real to him. How he had got to it I do not know. Perhaps his mind, dwelling constantly on the problem, had unsealed some atrophied cell and restored the old instinct. Anyhow, he was living his daily life with a foot in each world.

John Buchan, 1st Baron Tweedsmuir

Don't commit suicide, because you might change your mind two weeks later.

Arthur

The Chinese novel was written primarily to amuse the common people. And when I say amuse I do not mean only to make them laugh, though laughter is also one of the aims of the Chinese novel. I mean amusement in the sense of absorbing and occupying the whole attention of the mind. I mean enlightening that mind by pictures of life and what that life means.

Pearl Sydenstricker Buck

She that would raise a noble love must find Ways to beget a passion for her mind; She must be that which she to the world would seem, For all true love is grounded on esteem: Plainness and truth gain more a generous heart Than all the crooked subtleties of art.

George Villiers, 2nd Duke of Buckingham

To cease from evil, to do good, and to purify the mind yourself, this is the teaching of all the Buddhas.

Gautama Buddha

Man consists of two parts, his mind and his body, only the body has more fun.

Woody Allen

Lyrically speaking, I know that there were a lot of things going on in and around the world and there were some very specific people in my mind coming dangerously close to having megolomaniacal tendancies and so I did my best to write those thoughts down.

Brandon Boyd

Where there is mind, there is always solution, Keneenk taught. All problems contained the elements of their answer.

William M. Kucmierowski

Nothing focuses the mind better than the constant sight of a competitor who wants to wipe you off the map.

Wayne Calloway

It's how creativity works. Especially in humans. For every good idea, ten thousand idiotic ones must first be posed, sifted, tried out, and discarded. A mind that's afraid to toy with the ridiculous will never come up with the brilliantly original.

William M. Kucmierowski

These are the moments when the powerful mind or the forceful character feels the ferment of the times, when his thoughts quicken, and when he can inject into the uncertainties of others the creative ideas which will strengthen them with purpose. At such a moment the man who can direct others, in thought or in action, can remake the world.

Jacob Bronowski

The force that makes the winter grow Its feathered hexagons of snow, and drives the bee to match at home Their calculated honeycomb, Is abacus and rose combined. An icy sweetness fills my mind, A sense that under thing and wing Lies, taut yet living, coiled, the spring.

Jacob Bronowski

It is from a weakness and smallness of mind that men are opinionated; and we are very loath to believe what we are not able to comprehend.

Francois de La Rochefoucauld

A weak mind is like a microscope, which magnifies trifling things but cannot receive great ones.

Lord Chesterfield

But no generous mind delights to oppress the weak, but rather to cherish and protect.

Anne Bront

Never mind our kind friends: if they can part our bodies, it is enough; in God's name, let them not sunder our souls!

Anne Bront

First melted off the hope of youth Then Fancy's rainbow fast withdrew And then experience told me truth In mortal bosoms never grew 'Twas grief enough to think mankind All hollow servile insincere But worse to trust to my own mind And find the same corruption there

Emily Jane Bront

Shall Earth no more inspire thee, Thou lonely dreamer now? Since passion may not fire thee Shall Nature cease to bow? Thy mind is ever moving In regions dark to thee; Recall its useless roving Come back and dwell with me

Emily Jane Bront

Well I'm running down the road Tryin' to loosen my load, I've got seven women on my mind, Four that wanna own me, Two that wanna stone me, One says she's a friend of mine.

Clyde Jackson Browne

Old myths, old gods, old heroes have never died. They are only sleeping at the bottom of our mind, waiting for our call. We have need for them. They represent the wisdom of our race.
