Thoughts Quotes

If you be sick, your own thoughts make you sick

Ben Johnson

Do not feel ashamed to forgive and forget. Do not hurry over punishments and do not be pleased and do not be proud of your power to punish. Do not get angry and lose your temper quickly over the mistakes and failures of those over whom you rule. On the contrary, be patient and sympathetic with them. Anger and desire of vengeance are not going to be of much help to you in your administration. Never say to yourself, "I am their Lord, their ruler and all in all over them and that I must be obeyed submissively and humbly" because such a thought will unbalance your mind, will make you vain and arrogant, will weaken your faith in religion and will make you seek support of any power other than that of Allah . If you ever feel any pride or vanity on account of your sway and rule over your subjects then think of the supreme sway and rule of the Lord over the Universe, the extent of His creations, the supremacy of His Might and Glory, His Power to do things which you cannot even dream of doing and His control over you which is more dominating than that which you can ever achieve over anything around you. Such thoughts will cure your mental weakness, will keep you away from vanity and rebellion (against Allah), will reduce your arrogance and haughtiness and will take you back to the sanity which you had foolishly deserted... Try carefully to realize that a ruler can create goodwill in the minds of his subjects and can make them faithful and sincere to him only when he is kind and considerate to them, when he reduces their troubles, when he does not oppress them and when he never asks for things which are beyond their power. These are the principles which you should keep in mind and act upon.

Ali bin Abu-Talib

Poetry is thoughts that breathe, and words that burn.

Thomas Gray

Me thinks that the moment my legs begin to move, my thoughts begin to flow.

Henry David Thoreau

The tide of evolution carries everything before it, thoughts no less than bodies, and persons no less than nations

George Santayana

Weak thoughts and feelings often feel strong but remember, real strength is never anxious, cruel, or punishing.

Guy Finley

The only thing worried thoughts have the power to change is what the next thing will be for you to worry over!

Guy Finley

The first thing to do is to break the circuit between bile and brain by resolutely turning oneĆ­s thoughts away from the vexatious subject. This does not means finding convincing arguments, but simply breaking off the contact by, for example, forcing oneself to careful observation of some object or another. When the train of thought has thus been redirected, a few moments of mediation will prevent the reaction of the bile from continuing. This small act of control has the highest importance, for it ensures that when the anarchistic Automaton attacks the conscious self, victory shall go to the latter

Isha De Lubicz

Manual labor to my father was not only good and decent for it's own sake but, as he was given to saying, it straightened out one's thoughts.

Mary Ellen Chase

The way you talk about yourself and your lifeyour storyhas a great deal to do with what shows up in your day-to-day experience. Your thoughts create filters through which you view your life. If you think of yourself as a Victim, you filter all that happens to you through the lens of DDT, and you find plenty of evidence to support that viewpoint. Thats why the orientation you adopt is so important: it exerts a powerful influence on your life direction.

David Emerald

Work joyfully and peacefully, knowing that right thoughts and right efforts will inevitably bring about right results.

James Allen

You can never become a great man or woman until you have overcome anxiety, worry, and fear. It is impossible for an anxious person, a worried one, or a fearful one to perceive truth; all things are distorted and thrown out of their proper relations by such mental states, and those who are in them cannot read the thoughts of God

Wallace D. Wattles

Spring comes with flowers, autumn with the moon, summer with the breeze, winter with snow. When idle concerns don't fill your thoughts, that's your best season.


Only man clogs his happiness with care, destroying what is with thoughts of what may be

John Dryden

Some patients I see are actually draining into their bodies the diseased thoughts of their minds
