Thoughts Quotes

Nurture your mind with great thoughts; to believe in the heroic makes heroes

Benjamin Disraeli

The color, the grace and levitation, the structural pattern in motion, the quick interplay of live beings, suspended like fitful lightning in a cloud, these things are the play, not words on paper, nor thoughts and ideas of an author, those shabby things snatched off basement counters at Gimbel's.

TENNESSEE WILLIAMS

Words are the dress of thoughts; which should no more be presented in rags, tatters, and dirt than your person should

Lord Chesterfield

Words are but pictures of our thoughts.

John Dryden

One great use of words is to hide our thoughts

Voltaire

Words without thoughts never to heaven go.

William Shakespeare

One of the disadvantages of wine is that it makes a man mistake words for thoughts.

Dr Samuel Johnson

The whole fauna of human fantasies, their marine vegetation, drifts and luxuriates in the dimly lit zones of human activity, as though plaiting thick tresses of darkness. Here, too, appear the lighthouses of the mind, with their outward resemblance to less pure symbols. The gateway to mystery swings open at the touch of human weakness and we have entered the realms of darkness. One false step, one slurred syllable together reveal a man's thoughts.

Louis Aragon

Influencing people is dangerous. Their acts and thoughts become your illegitimate children. You can't get away from them and Heaven knows what they mayn't grow up into.

Elizabeth Bibesco

A human being is part of a whole, called by us the Universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.

Albert Einstein

Wondering's healthy. Broadens the mind. Opens you up to all sorts of stray thoughts and possibilities.

Charles de Lint

Language is the blood of the soul into which thoughts run and out of which they grow.

Oliver Wendell Holmes

A human being is part of the whole, called by us ‘Universe’; a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest — a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and affection for a few persons nearest us.

Albert Einstein

In matters of conscience first thoughts are best; in matters of prudence last thoughts are best.
