Mind Quotes

Your mind is torn between love and righteousness, then honey go righteousness and God will bless you back.

Duane Chapman

The mind moves in the direction of our currently dominant thoughts.

Earl Nightingale

Of all our planet's activities--geological movements, the reproduction and decay of biota, and even the disruptive propensities of certain species (elephants and humans come to mind)--no force is greater than the hydrologic cycle.

RICHARD BANGS

Intolerance is the Do Not Touch sign on something that cannot bear touching. We do not mind having our hair ruffled, but we will not tolerate any familiarity with the toupee which covers our baldness.

Eric Hoffer

This is a proof of a well-trained mind, to rejoice in what is good and to grieve at the opposite.

Marcus Tullius Cicero

The study of Nature is intercourse with the Highest Mind. You should never trifle with Nature.

Louis Agassiz

The power of duly appreciating little things belongs to a great mind; a narrow-minded man has it not, for to him they are great things

Richard Whately

There is no real elevation of mind in a contempt of little things. It is, on the contrary, from too narrow views that we consider those things of little importance, which have, in fact, such extensive consequences.

Francis De S. Fenelon

When indignation takes possession of his mind - and it is easily excited - his disposition becomes malevolent. He hates with the bitterest contempt. But as soon as he has indulged those feelings, he regains the humanity which he had lost - from the immediate impulse of provocation - and repents deeply. So that his mind is continually making the most sudden transitions - from good to evil, from evil to good. A state of such perpetual tumult must be attended with the misery of restless inconsistency. He laments his want of tranquillity and speaks of the power of application to composing studies, as a blessing placed beyond his attainment, which he regrets.

Annabella Milbanke

Cicero

The speed of the human mind is remarkable. So is its inability to face the obvious.

SIMON MAWER

What we truly and earnestly aspire to be, that in some sense we are. The mere aspiration, by changing the frame of the mind, for the moment realizes itself.

Anna Jameson

To be satisfied with a little, is the greatest wisdom; and he that increaseth his riches, increaseth his cares; but a contented mind is a hidden treasure, and trouble findeth it not.

Akhenaton

Our treasure lies in the beehives of our knowledge. We are perpetually on our way thither, being by nature winged insects and honey gatherers of the mind. The only thing that lies close to our heart is the desire to bring something home to the hive.
