Let not your mind run on what you lack as much as on what you have already.
Marcus Aurelius quotes
Iron rusts from disuse; water loses its purity from stagnation ... even so does inaction sap the vigour of the mind.
Leonardo da Vinci quotes
To understand the heart and mind of a person, look not at what he has already achieved, but at what he aspires to.
Kahlil Gibran quotes
Every mind was made for growth, for knowledge, and its nature is sinned against when it is doomed to ignorance.
William Ellery Channing quotes
That's what real love amounts to- letting a person be what he really is. Most people love you for who you pretend to be. To keep their love, you keep pretending- performing. You get to love your pretence. It's true, we're locked in an image, an act- and the sad thing is, people get so used to their image, they grow attached to their masks. They love their chains. They forget all about who they really are. And if you try to remind them, they hate you for it, they feel like you're trying to steal their most precious possession.
Jim Morrison quotes
I have sworn upon the altar of God, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.
Thomas Jefferson quotes
Have a strong mind and a soft heart.
Anthony J. D'Angelo quotes
It requires a very unusual mind to undertake the analysis of the obvious.
Alfred North Whitehead quotes
There's nothing to winning, really. That is, if you happen to be blessed with a keen eye, an agile mind, and no scruples whatsoever.
Alfred Hitchcock quotes
I don't know. People always think that there has got to be a dark side to everyone, a closet with skeletons, demons under the bed. People think all kinds of things about one another. They feel compelled to make up fears and false assumptions about their closest friends. Truth is, I'll never know all there is to know about you just as you will never know all there is to know about me. Humans are by nature too complicated to be understood fully. So, we can choose either to approach our fellow human beings with suspicion or to approach them with an open mind, a dash of optimism and a great deal of candour.
Tom Hanks quotes
