thoughts

All truly great thoughts are conceived while walking.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Oh, the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all out, just as they are, chaff and grain together, certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and with a breath of kindness blow the rest away.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Wicked thoughts and worthless efforts gradually set their mark on the face, especially the eyes.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Poetry is thoughts that breathe, and words that burn.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In that sweet mood when pleasant thoughts bring sad thoughts to the mind.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Thoughts are things; they have tremendous power. Thoughts of doubt and fear are pathways to failure. When you conquer negative attitudes of doubt and fear you conquer failure. Thoughts crystallize into habit and habit solidifies into circumstances.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A little kingdom I possess, where thoughts and feelings dwell; And very hard the task I find of governing it well.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

A man should conceive of a legitimate purpose in his heart, and set out to accomplish it. He should make this purpose the centralizing point of his thoughts. It may take the form of a spiritual ideal, or it may be a worldly object, according to his nature at the time being; but whichever it is, he should steadily focus his thought forces upon the object which he has set before him. He should make this purpose his supreme duty, and should devote himself to its attainment, not allowing his thoughts to wander away into ephemeral fancies, longings, and imaginings. This is the royal road to self-control and true concentration of thought. Even if he fails again and again to accomplish his purpose (as he necessarily must until weakness is overcome), the strength of character gained will be the measure of his true success, and this will form a new starting point for future power and triumph.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
He who would be useful, strong, and happy must cease to be a passive receptacle for the negative, beggarly, and impure streams of thought; and as a wise householder commands his servants and invites his guests, so must he learn to command his desires and to say, with authority, what thoughts he shall admit into the mansion of his soul.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Work joyfully and peacefully, knowing that right thoughts and right efforts will inevitably bring about right results.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Our life is what our thoughts make it. A man will find that as he alters his thoughts toward things and other people, things and other people will alter towards him.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
You are today where your thoughts have brought you; you will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
You must choose the thoughts and actions that will lead you on to success.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
That in the beginning when the world was young there were a great many thoughts but no such thing as truth. Man made the truths himself and each truth was a composite of a great many vague thoughts. All about in the world were truths and they were all beautiful.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
You live with your thoughts -- so be careful what they are.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Thoughts of themselves have no substance; let them arise and pass away unheeded. Thoughts will not take form of themselves, unless they are grasped by the attention; if they are ignored, there will be no appearing and no disappearing.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
My mind withdrew its thoughts from experience, extracting itself from the contradictory throng of sensuous images, that it might find out what that light was wherein it was bathed.... And thus, with the flash of one hurried glance, it attained to the vision of That Which Is.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We live in deeds, not years: In thoughts not breaths; In feelings, not in figures on a dial. We should count time by heart throbs. He most lives Who thinks most, feels the noblest, acts the best.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Worry is a cycle of inefficient thoughts whirling around a center of fear.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Never give up. Keep your thoughts and your mind always on the goal.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We need a type of theatre which not only releases the feelings, insights and impulses possible within the particular historical field of human relations in which the action takes place, but employs and encourages those thoughts and feelings which help transform the field itself.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
One essential to success is that your desire be an all-obsessing one, your thoughts and aim be coordinated, and your energy be concentrated and applied without letup.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A man who has the courage of his platitudes is always a successful man. The instructed man is ashamed to pronounce in an orphic manner what everybody knows, and because he is silent people think he is making fun of them. They like a man who expresses their own superficial thoughts in a manner that appears to be profound. This enables them to feel that they are themselves profound.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The person who tries to live alone will not succeed as a human being. His heart withers if it does not answer another heart. His mind shrinks away if he hears only the echoes of his own thoughts and finds no other inspiration.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

All great deeds and all great thoughts have a ridiculous beginning.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The profoundest thoughts of the philosophers have something trickle about them. A lot disappears in order for something to suddenly appear in the palm of the hand.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Yet what are all such gaieties to me whose thoughts are full of indices and surds?More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There is a strange charm in the thoughts of a good legacy, or the hopes of an estate, which wondrously removes or at least alleviates the sorrow that men would otherwise feel for the death of friends.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The men and woman who make the best boon companions seem to have given up hope of doing something else...some defect of talent or opportunity has cut them off from their pet ambition and has thus left them with leisure to take an interest in their lives of others. Your ambition may be, it makes him keep his thoughts at home. But the heartbroken people -- if I may use the word in a mild, benevolent sense -- the people whose wills are subdued to fate, give us consolation, recognition, and welcome.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A lazy person, whatever the talents with which he set out, will have condemned himself to second-hand thoughts and to second-rate friends.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

We ask God to forgive us for our evil thoughts and evil temper, but rarely, if ever ask Him to forgive us for our sadness.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

The aim of education should be to teach us rather how to think, than what to think -- rather to improve our minds, so as to enable us to think for ourselves, than to load the memory with the thoughts of other men.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Those who have high thoughts are ever striving; they are not happy to remain in the same place. Like swans that leave their lake and rise into the air, they leave their home and fly for a higher home.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In the light of his vision he has found his freedom: his thoughts are peace, his words are peace and his work is peace.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Our best thoughts come from others.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Do you suffer your thoughts to tamper with evil; and to dally with wrong-doing? If so; you are not sincere. God will regard your thoughts; for thoughts are heard in heaven. If you willingly sin in thought; if you are base and guilty there; because you think that no eye will see your thoughts; the guilt and baseness will sooner or later break into the outlets of word and deed -- from thought to wish -- from wish to purpose -- from purpose to word -- from word to act -- from act to habit -- from delight in the imagination to consent in the will -- from deed to repeated transgression; such is the genesis of sin.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If I held all the thoughts of the world in my hand, I would be careful not to open it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Women do not win formula one races, because they simply are not strong enough to resist the G-forces. In the boardroom, it is different. I believe women are better able to marshal their thoughts than men and because they are less egotistical they make fewer assumptions.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
My definition of success is total self acceptance. We can obtain all of the material possessions we desire quite easily, however, attempting to change our deepest thoughts and learning to love ourselves is a monumental challenge. We may achieve success in our business lives but it never quite means as much if we do not feel good inside. Once we feel good about ourselves inside we can genuinely lend ourselves to others.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
To know someone here or there with whom you can feel there is understanding in spite of distances or thoughts expressed -- That can make life a garden.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
All truly wise thoughts have been thoughts already thousands of times; but to make them truly ours, we must think them over again honestly, till they take root in our personal experience.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
My thoughts are crowded with death and it draws so oddly on the sexual that I am confused to be attracted by, in effect, my own annihilation.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In matters of conscience, first thoughts are best. In matters of prudence, last thoughts are best.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Fatigue dulls the pain, but awakes enticing thoughts of death. So! that is the way in which you are tempted to overcome your loneliness -- by making the ultimate escape from life. -- No! It may be that death is to be your ultimate gift to life: it must not be an act of treachery against it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Great thoughts reduced to practice become great acts.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Man, alone, has the power to transform his thoughts into physical reality; man, alone, can dream and make his dreams come true.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The secret thoughts of a man run over all things, holy, profane, clean, obscene, grave, and light, without shame or blame.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
For I say unto you in all sadness of conviction that to think great thoughts you must be heroes as well as idealists. Only when you have worked alone -- when you have felt around you are a black gulf of solitude more isolating than that which surrounds the dying man, and in hope and despair have trusted to your own unshaken will -- then only can you gain the secret isolated joy of the thinker, who knows that a hundred years after he is dead and forgotten men who have never heard of him will be moving to the measure of his thought -- the subtle rapture of postponed power, which the world knows not because it has no external trappings, but which to his prophetic vision is more real than that which commands an army. And if this joy should not be yours, still it is only thus you can know that you have done what lay in you to do -- can say that you have lived, and be ready for the end.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
