Thinking Quotes

Meditation is the dissolution of thoughts in Eternal awareness or Pure consciousness without objectification, knowing without thinking, merging finitude in infinity

Swami Sivananda

Language is not only the vehicle of thought, it is a great and efficient instrument in thinking.

Humphrey Davy

In order to act, you must be somewhat insane. A reasonably sensible man is satisfied with thinking.

Ambrose Bierce

You're thinking of Eurpoe as Germany and France. I don't. I think that's old Europe.

Donald Rumsfeld

Most people think themselves kind enough, but rather like a magician thinking he is fooling an audience who can see through his trick, we are the worst judges of the effect we have on others. True, we can mentally point out various kindnesses we have committed and those pleasant aspects of ourselves. Yet by doing so, we ignore the real test cases: how we behave under pressure, how nice we are to people we dont like, how we deal with other people who seem determined to not live up to our unrealistic expectations.

Derren Victor Brown

Many things we misread as meaningful are quite ordinary coincidences. For example, its not unlikely that occasionally someone will phone you after youve been thinking about them. But we give these things value to make sense of our lives.

Derren Victor Brown

Normally, your wife can hear things that no one else on earth can hear. She can hear a dab of jam fall onto a carpet two rooms away. She can hear spilled coffee being furtively mopped up with a good bathtowel. She can hear dirt being tracked across a clean floor. She can hear you just thinking about doing something you shouldn't do. But get yourself stuck in a loft hatch and suddenly it is as if she has been placed in a soundproof chamber.

William Cullen Bryant

The surest defense against Evil is extreme individualism, originality of thinking, whimsicality, even if you will eccentricity. That is, something that can't be feigned, faked, imitated; something even a seasoned imposter couldn't be happy with.

Iosip Aleksandrovich Brodsky

Andr Breton

I am now convinced that theoretical physics is actually philosophy. It has revolutionized fundamental concepts, e.g., abut space and time (relativity), about causality (quantum theory), and about substance and matter (atomistics). It has taught us new methods of thinking (complimentarity), which are applicable far beyond physics.

Max Born

I have been thinking about our conversation and about your book, and I am afraid that I expressed myself badly yesterday. When I said that one may love and be loved at any age I ought to have added that sometimes this love comes too late. It comes when one no longer has the right to prove to the loved one how much she is loved, except by love's sacrifice.

Paul Charles Joseph Bourget

This teaching is to live as we think, otherwise, sooner or later, we end up thinking as we lived.

Paul Charles Joseph Bourget

Philosophy! Empty thinking by ignorant conceited men who think they can digest without eating!

Iris Murdoch

Oh, what a shame What a rainy ending given to a perfect day Just walk away Ain't no use defending words that you will never say And now that I'm sitting here thinking of you I've never been anywhere cold as you

Taylor Swift
