Mind quotes

If all the gold in the world were melted down into a solid cube it would be about the size of an eight room house. If a man got possession of all that gold -- billions of dollars worth -- he could not buy a friend, character, peace of mind, clear conscience or a sense of eternity.

- Bunning, Charles F.

If you can accept losing you can't win. If you can walk you can run. No one is ever hurt. Hurt is in your mind.

- Lombardi, Vince

To read good books is like holding a conversation with the most eminent minds of past centuries and, more-over, a studied conversation in which these authors reveal to us only the best of their thoughts.

- Renť Descartes

The true poem is the poet's mind.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo

The mind like a parachute functions only when open.


There are few minds to which tyranny is not delightful.

- Samuel Johnson

I try and try to deny that I need you but still you remain on my mind.

- Mariah Carey

If the statistics are right, the Jews constitute but one percent of the human race. It suggests a nebulous dim puff of star dust lost in the blaze of the Milky Way. Properly the Jew ought hardly to be heard of; but he is heard of, has always been heard of. He is as prominent on the planet as any other people, and his commercial importance is extravagantly out of proportion to the smallness of his bulk. His contributions to the world's list of great names in literature, science, art, music, finance, medicine, and abstruse learning are also way out of proportion to the weakness of his numbers. He has made a marvelous fight in this world, in all the ages; and has done it with his hands tied behind him. He could be vain of himself and be excused for it. The Egyptian, the Babylonian, and the Persian rose, filled the planet with sound and splendor, then faded to dream-stuff and passed away; the Greek and Roman followed, and made a vast noise, and they are gone; other peoples have sprung up and held their torch high for a time, but it burned out, and they sit in twilight now, or have vanished. The Jew saw them all, beat them all, and is now what he always was, exhibiting no decadence, no infirmity of age, no weakening of his parts, no slowing of his energies, no dulling of his alert and aggressive mind.

- Mark Twain

Language is the light of the mind.

- John StuartMill

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 thoughts of other men.

- Bill Beattie

Never give anyone total access to your pockets, your pockets, your purse or your mind.


Everything has been said yet few have taken advantage of it. Since all our knowledge is essentially banal, it can only be of value to minds that are not.

- Vaneigem, Raoul

Could we have entered into the mind of Sir Isaac Newton, and have traced all the steps by which he produced his great works, we might see nothing very extraordinary in the process.

- Joseph Priestley

A little philosophy inclineth men's minds toward atheism, but depth of philosophy bringeth men's minds about again to religion.

- Sir Francis Bacon

To be a good diarist, one must have a snouty, sneaky mind.

- Nicolson, Harold

Writing or printing is like shooting with a rifle; you may hit your readerís mind, or miss it;óbut talking is like playing at a mark with the pipe of an engine; if it is within reach, and you have time enough, you canít help hitting it.

- Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr

Self-determination has to mean that the leader is your individual gut, and heart, and mind or we're talking about power, again, and its rather well-known impurities. Who is really going to care whether you live or die and who is going to know the most intimate motivation for your laughter and your tears is the only person to be trusted to speak for you and to decide what you will or will not do.

- Jordan, June

Vain, very vain is my search to find; that happiness which only centers in the mind.

- Goldsmith, Oliver

Friends make pretence of following to the grave but before one is in it, their minds are turned and making the best of their way back to life and living people and things they understand.

- Frost, Robert

Penicillin was indeed the product of accidental discovery, but the discovery was made, and the knowledge developed, because certain scientists had definite goals in mind. "Chance," Pastuer wrote, "favors only the prepared mind." The mind must be prepared not only by scientific training and technological know-how, but also by the awareness of social needs.
