Mind quotes
True enjoyment comes from activity of the mind and exercise of the body; the two are ever united.

- Humboldt, Karl Wilhelm Von
Practically everybody in New York has half a mind to write a book, and does.

- Marx, Groucho
Modesty is a shining light; it prepares the mind to receive knowledge, and the heart for truth.

- Madam Guizot
Over the greater part of the so-called civilised world is spreading a deep distrust, a deep irreverence of every man towards his neighbour, and a practical unbelief in every man whom you do see, atones for itself by a theoretic belief in an ideal human nature which you do not see. Such a temper of mind, unless it be checked by that which alone can check it, namely, the grace of God, must tend towards sheer anarchy. There is a deeper and uglier anarchy than any mere political anarchy,--which the abuse of the critical spirit leads to,--the anarchy of society and of the family, the anarchy of the head and of the heart, which leaves poor human beings as orphans in the wilderness to cry in vain, "What can I know? Whom can I love?"

- The Critical Spirit. 1871.
Life has no other discipline to impose, if we would but realize it, than to accept life unquestioningly. Everything we shut our eyes to, everything we run away from, everything we deny, denigrate, or despise, serves to defeat us in the end. What seems nasty, painful, evil, can become a source of beauty, joy, and strength, if faced with an open mind. Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognize it as such.

- Henry Miller
It is not the place, nor the condition, but the mind alone that can make anyone happy or miserable.

- Roger L'Estrange
Have a strong mind and a soft heart.

- Anthony J. D'Angelo
Though fortunes malice overthrow my state, my mind exceeds the compass of her wheel.

- William Shakespeare
Enlighten the people, generally, and tyranny and oppressions of body and mind will vanish like spirits at the dawn of day.

- Thomas Jefferson
Are you in earnest? Seize this very minute! Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Only engage, and then the mind grows heated. Begin, and then the work will be completed.

- Anster, John
Canst thou not minister to a mind diseased, Pluck from the memory a rooted sorrow... And with some sweet oblivious antidote Cleanse the stuff'd bosom of that perilous stuff Which weighs upon the heart?

- William Shakespeare
The true knowledge or science which exists nowhere but in the mind itself, has no other entity at all besides intelligibility; and therefore whatsoever is clearly intelligible, is absolutely true.

- Cudworth, Ralph J.
Advice is like snow; the softer it falls the longer it dwells upon, and the deeper it sinks into the mind.

- Coleridge, Samuel Taylor
Beauty is a primeval phenomenon, which itself never makes its appearance, but the reflection of which is visible in a thousand different utterances of the creative mind, and is as various as nature herself.

- Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
The mind that is anxious about the future is miserable.

- Seneca
In the late 19th century Evanston, Illinois, nicknamed "Heavenston" by Frances Willard, was a Methodist-minded town, so pious that the town fathers, resenting the dissipating influence of the soda fountain, passed an ordinance forbidding the sale of ice cream sodas on Sunday. Some ingenious confectioners, obeying the law, served ice cream with syrup but no soda. This sodaless soda was the Sunday soda, and became so popular that orders for "Sundays" crossed the counter everyday of the week. When objection was raised to christening the dish after the Sabbath, the spelling was changed to Sundae, and so developed one of America's most characteristic dishes.

- William Lyon Phelps
The passion of self-aggrandizement is persistent but plastic; it will never disappear from a vigorous mind, but may become morally higher by attaching itself to a larger conception of what constitutes the self.

- Cooley, Charles Horton
Argument is conclusive... but... it does not remove doubt, so that the mind may rest in the sure knowledge of the truth, unless it finds it by the method of experiment. For if any man who never saw fire proved by satisfactory arguments that fire burns. his hearer's mind would never be satisfied, nor would he avoid the fire until he put his hand in it that he might learn by experiment what argument taught.

- Bacon, Roger
When any anxiety or gloom of the mind takes hold of you, make it a rule not to publish it by complaining; but exert yourselves to hide it, and by endeavoring to hide it you drive it away.

- Johnson
The ultimate aim of the human mind, in all its efforts, is to become acquainted with Truth.

- Farnham, Eliza
