Thoughtful Quotations

 

We think too small. Like the frog at the bottom of the well. He thinks the sky is only as big as the top of the well. If he surfaced, he would have an entirely different view.
Mao Tse-Tung

Where all think alike, no one thinks very much.
Walter Lipman

Thoughts are but dreams till their effects be tried.
William Shakespeare

Men give me some credit for genius. All the genius I have lies in this: When I have a subject in hand, I study it profoundly. Day and night it is before me. I explore it in all its bearings. My mind becomes pervaded with it. Then the effort which I make is what the people call the fruit of genius. It is the fruit of labor and thought.
Alexander Hamiltonr



The aim of education should be to teach us how to think, rather than what to think.
James Beattie

What gems of painting or statuary are in the world of art, or what flowers are in the world of nature, are gems of thought to the cultivated and the thinking.
Oliver Wendell Holmes

They are able who think they are able.
Virgil

We bring forth weeds when our quick minds lie still.
William Shakespeare

Every man has a train of thought on which he rides when he is alone.
Joseph Fort Newton

The less men think, the more they talk.
Baron Montesquieu

Such as are thy habitual thoughts, such also will be the character of thy mind; for the soul is dyed by the thoughts.
Marcus Aurelius

Learning without thought is labor lost; thought without learning is perilous.
Confucius

The universe is change;
our life is what our thoughts make it.

Marcus Aurelius

Our thoughts are epochs in our lives; all else is but as a journal of the winds that blow while we are here.
Henry David Thoreau

But words are things, and a small drop of ink
Falling like dew upon a thought, produces
That which makes thousands, perhaps millions, think.

Sir Aubrey De Vere

Thoughts rule the world.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Thinking is the talking of the soul with itself.
Plato

Impromptu thoughts are mental wild-flowers.
Mme. du Deffand

Your disposition will be suitable to that which you most frequently think on; for the soul is, as it were, tinged with the color and complexion of its own thoughts.
Marcus Antonius

Fully to understand a grand and beautiful thought requires, perhaps, as much time as to conceive it.
Joseph Joubert

Thinking is the hardest work there is, which is the probably reason why so few people engage in it.
Henry Ford

What I must do is all that concerns me, not what other people think.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

The efficient man is the man who thinks for himself, and is capable of thinking hard and long.
Charles W. Eliot

Thought is the soul of act.
Robert Browning

They are never alone that are accompanied with noble thoughts.
Sir Philip Sidney

Change your thoughts and you change your world.
Norman Vincent Peale

Obvious thinking commonly leads to wrong judgments and wrong conclusions.
Humphrey B. Neil

Great quotes as always Kristin, that first one will be stuck in my thoughts for a while.  Our worlds have expanded so much with inventions like tv and internet, yet we still meet people occassionally who have never climbed out of the well to see the bigger sky.
