Be careful of your thoughts, they may become words at any moment......





If the mind, that rules the body, ever so far forgets itself as to trample on its slave, the slave is never generous enough to forgive the injury, but will rise and smite the oppressor....








The mind I love must have wild places, a tangled orchard where dark damsons drop in the heavy grass, an overgrown little wood, the chance of a snake or two, a pool that nobody's fathomed the depth of, and paths threaded with flowers planted by the mind. ....








Men are not prisoners of fate, but prisoners of their own minds.....







Pain of mind is worse than pain of body.....








Body and mind, like man and wife, do not always agree to die together. .....








Creative minds are rarely tidy......








Don't let it be all in your head, nor all in your body....








Bodies devoid of mind are as statues in the market place. .....







Sometimes it's harder to attain inner silence than outer silence.  The dog stopped barking and the kids have gone to bed, but your mind has a lot to talk about and it knows you can't pretend you're not at home.....








The mind, once expanded to the dimensions of larger ideas, never returns to its original size.....







Pour some water into a tub and stir it up.  Now try as hard as you can to calm the water with your hands; you will succeed in agitating it further.  Let it stand undisturbed a while, and it will calm down by itself.  The human brain works much the same way.....








Here in your mind you have complete privacy. Here there's no difference between what is and what could be....








The power of the mind is your power. Use it. Don't let it use you.....








To a mind that is still, the whole universe surrenders....







The vacation we often need is freedom from our own mind.....








Some minds are made of blotting-paper: you can write nothing on them distinctly. They swallow the ink, and you find a large spot....







Some minds seem almost to create themselves, springing up under every disadvantage and working their solitary but irresistible way through a thousand obstacles.....








Sometimes I suffer from indigestion of the mind.....







Minds, like bodies, will often fall into a pimpled, ill-conditioned state from mere excess of comfort....







It is discouraging to try to penetrate a mind like yours.  You ought to get it out and dance on it.  That would take some of the rigidity out of it.....







It is sweet to let the mind unbend on occasion. ....








Both optimists and pessimists contribute to our society.  The optimist invents the airplane and the pessimist the parachute.....







The nice part about being a pessimist is that you are constantly being either proven right or pleasantly surprised.....








A pessimist sees only the dark side of the clouds, and mopes; a philosopher sees both sides, and shrugs; an optimist doesn't see the clouds at all - he's walking on them....








An optimist stays up until midnight to see the new year in.  A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves....







An optimist is the human personification of spring...








A pessimist is one who makes difficulties of his opportunities and an optimist is one who makes opportunities of his difficulties...



 



 An optimist is a person who starts a new diet on Thanksgiving Day.....








Optimist: someone who figures that taking a step backward after taking a step forward is not a disaster, it's a cha-cha...







Being an optimist after you've got everything you want doesn't count.....







Optimists are nostalgic about the future.....







Optimism is the foundation of courage.....







An optimist is someone who figures that if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it's the bluebird of happiness....





 
Of course I look at the glass half full.  The only time I would look at it half empty is when I think about how good the first half tasted. ....








I am one of those people who just can't help getting a kick out of life - even when it's a kick in the teeth....








Some people are so fond of ill-luck that they run half-way to meet it.....








In the long run the pessimist may be proved right, but the optimist has a better time on the trip....







It doesn't hurt to be optimistic.  You can always cry later.....








It's still possible to be a cockeyed optimist these days - you just have to be a little more cockeyed....







The optimist proclaims that we live in the best of all possible worlds; and the pessimist fears this is true....








Optimism is a kind of heart stimulant - the digitalis of failure....







An optimist is merely an ex-pessimist with his pockets full of money, his digestion in good condition, and his wife in the country.....







How do you tell an optimist that he or she has lived a happy life by mistake....? 







 Always borrow money from a pessimist, he doesn't expect to be paid back.....
