The mind of a bigot is like the pupil of the eye. The more light you shine on it, the more it will contract.
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. quotes
Jealousy is a disease, love is a healthy condition. The immature mind often mistakes one for the other, or assumes that the greater the love, the greater the jealousy--in fact, they're almost incompatible; one emotion hardly leaves room for the other. Both at once can produce unbearable turmoil...
Robert Heinlein quotes
Wisdom is to the mind what health is to the body.
François de la Rochefoucauld quotes
Alexander received more bravery of mind by the pattern of Achilles, than by hearing the definition of fortitude.
Philip Sidney, Sr. quotes
The human mind has first to construct forms, independently, before we can find them in things.
Albert Einstein quotes
We need quiet time to examine our lives openly and honestly. . . spending quiet time alone gives your mind an opportunity to renew itself and create order.
Susan Taylor quotes
Never give up. Keep your thoughts and your mind always on the goal.
Tom Bradley quotes
By recognizing a favorable opinion of yourself, and taking pleasure in it, you in a measure give yourself and your peace of mind into the keeping of another, of whose attitude you can never be certain. You have a new source of doubt and apprehension.
Charles Horton Cooley quotes
We are commanded to love God with all our minds, as well as with all our hearts, and we commit a great sin if we forbid or prevent that cultivation of the mind in others which would enable them to perform this duty.
Angelina Grimke quotes
Reverie is when ideas float in our mind without reflection or regard of the understanding.
John Locke quotes
