Mind Quotes

Idleness is the badge of the gentry, the bane of body and mind, the nurse of naughtiness, the stepmother of discipline, the chief author of all mischief, one of the seven deadly sins, the cushion upon which the devil chiefly reposes, and a great cause not only of melancholy, but of many other diseases; for the mind is naturally active, and, if it is not occupied about some honest business, it rushes into mischief or sinks into melancholy.

Robert Burton

A man should learn to detect and watch that gleam of light which flashes across his mind from within.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Speech was given to the ordinary sort of men, whereby to communicate their mind; but to wise men, whereby to conceal it.

Robert South

The universal medicine for the Soul is the Supreme Reason and Absolute Justice; for the mind, mathematical and practical Truth; for the body, the Quintessence, a combination of light and gold.

Albert Pike

Intelligence is no human sideshow but an evolutionary main event. The power to foresee, to call upon the past in terms of the future, to evaluate, to imagine solutions, is a power flowing from old time springs. The human mind may be denied the policeman's privilege of arresting this instinct or that. It may sit as no more than a moderator in the eternal instinctual debate. But it is a moderator with unlimited investigative powers.

Robert Ardrey

The tendinous part of the mind, so to speak, is more developed in winter; the fleshy, in summer. I should say winter had given the bone and sinew to literature, summer the tissues and the blood.

John Burroughs

For every ailment under the sun, There is a remedy, or there is none, If there be one, try to find it; If there be none, never mind it.

Mother Goose

There is but one thing needfulto possess God. All our senses, all our powers of mind and soul, all our external resources, are so many ways of approaching the divinity, so many modes of tasting and of adoring God. We must learn to detach ourselves from all that is capable of being lost, to bind ourselves absolutely only to what is absolute and eternal, and to enjoy the rest as a loan...

Henri-Frdric Amiel

Just as hatred and vengefullness exist in the mind, peace and love can also exist in the mind.

Mata Amritanandamayi Devi

An active mind cannot exist in an inactive body.

General George S. Patton

To resist the frigidity of old age, one must combine the body, the mind, and the heart. And to keep these in parallel vigor one must exercise, study, and love.

Charles-Victor de Bonstettin

A sound mind in a sound body is a short but full description of a happy state in this world.

John Locke

Conversation is an exercise of the mind;gossip is merely an exercise of the tongue.

Michael Jordan

The torment of human frustration, whatever its immediate cause, is the knowledge that the self is in prison, its vital force and "mangled mind" leaking away in lonely, wasteful self-conflict.

Elizabeth Drew

Nepali proverb

The pain of the mind is worse than the pain of the body

Publilius Syrus

I believe that a simple and unassuming manner of life is best for everyone, best both for the body and the mind.

Albert Einstein

The fool's mind wanders, the wise mind wonders.

Patrick J. Mills

Our intellect is not the most subtle, the most powerful, the most appropriate, instrument for revealing the truth. It is life that, little by little, example by example, permits us to see that what is most important to our heart, or to our mind, is learned not by reasoning but through other agencies. Then it is that the intellect, observing their superiority, abdicates its control to them upon reasoned grounds and agrees to become their collaborator and lackey.
