Mind Quotes

Books are the bees which carry the quickening pollen from one to another mind.

James Russell Lowell

The prejudices of men emanate from the mind, and may be overcome; the prejudices of women emanate from the heart and are impregnable.

Jean Baptiste de Boyer

Prejudice is a raft onto which the shipwrecked mind clambers and paddles to safety.

Ben Hecht

Prejudice, like the spider, makes everywhere its home. It has neither taste nor choice of place, and all that it requires is room. If the one prepares her food by poisoning it to her palate and her use, the other does the same. Prejudice may be denominated the spider of the mind.

Thomas Paine

Music is the medicine of the mind

John Logan

When men drink, then they are rich and successful and win lawsuits and are happy and help their friends. Quickly, bring me a beaker of wine, so that I may wet my mind and say something clever.

Aristophanes

I, for my part, wonder what sort of feeling, mind or reason that man was possessed who was first to pollute his mouth with gore, and allow his lips to touch the flesh of a murdered being; who spread his table with the mangled form of dead bodies, and claimed as daily food and dainty dishes what but know were beings endowed with with movement, with perception and with voice.

PLUTARCH

Can you really ask what reason Pythagoras had for abstaining from flesh? For my part I rather wonder both by what accident and in what state of soul or mind the first man did so, touched his mouth to gore and brought his lips to the flesh of a dead creature, he who set forth tables of dead, stale bodies and ventured to call food and nourishment the parts that had a little before bellowed and cried, moved and lived. How could his eyes endure the slaughter when throats were slit and hides flayed and limbs torn from limb? How could his nose endure the stench? How was it that the pollution did not turn away his taste, which made contact with the sores of others and sucked juices and serums from mortal wounds?

Plutarch

Quickly, bring me a beaker of wine, so that I may wet my mind and say something clever.

Aristophanes

Yoga is the cessation of mind.

Patanjali

Yoga is about clearing away whatever is in us that prevents our living in the most full and whole way. With yoga, we become aware of how and where we are restricted -- in body, mind, and heart -- and how gradually to open and release these blockages. As these blockages are cleared, our energy is freed. We start to feel more harmonious, more at one with ourselves. Our lives begin to flow -- or we begin to flow more in our lives.

Cybele Tomlinson

Yoga is possible for anybody who really wants it. Yoga is universal.... But don't approach yoga with a business mind looking for worldly gain.

Sri Krishna Pattabhi Jois

The hours when the mind is absorbed by beauty are the only hours when we truly live.

The unattended mind lives with unending wants, while the awakened mind understands that its own watchfulness is the fullness it seeks.
