I wish I could throw off the thoughts which poison my happiness, but I take a kind of pleasure in indulging them.

Frédéric Chopin

If you realized how powerful your thoughts are, you would never think a negative thought.

Peace Pilgrim

Our present swarms with traces of our past. We are histories of ourselves, narratives. I am not this momentary mass of flesh reclined on the sofa typing the letter a on my laptop; I am my thoughts full of the traces of the phrases that I am writing; I am my mother`s caresses, and the serene kindness with which my father calmly guided me; I am my adolescent travels; I am what my reading has deposited in layers in my mind; I am my loves, my moments of despair, my friendships, what I`ve written, what I`ve heard; the faces engraved on my memory. I am, above all, the one who a minute ago made a cup of tea for himself. The one who a moment ago typed the word "memory" into his computer. The one who just composed the sentence that I am now completing. If all this disappeared, would I still exist? I am this long, ongoing novel. My life consists of it.

Carlo Rovelli

As human beings, we live by emotions and thoughts. We exchange them when we are in the same place at the same time, talking to each other, looking into each other`s eyes, brushing against each other`s skin. We are nourished by this network of encounters and exchanges.

Carlo Rovelli

We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world.

Buddha

But thoughts, the slave of life, and life, time`s fool,
And time, that takes survey of all the world,
Must have a stop.

William Shakespeare

Free will is an illusion. Our wills are simply not of our own making. Thoughts and intentions emerge from background causes of which we are unaware and over which we exert no conscious control. We do not have the freedom we think we have.

Sam Harris

Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.

Oscar Wilde

Balance your thoughts with action. - If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you`ll never get it done.

Bruce Lee

So if your thoughts are energy, and energy attracts, then all of your thoughts about all of the things you fear the most - well, you`re actually making them happen. You`re manifesting them into existence simply by obsessing over them.

Alyson Noel

Thoughts could leave deeper scars than almost anything else.

J. K. Rowling

Work joyfully and peacefully, knowing that right thoughts and right efforts inevitably bring about right results.

James Allen

It is merely an accident of history that it is considered normal in our society to believe that the Creator of the universe can hear your thoughts while it is demonstrative of mental illness to believe that he is communicating with you by having the rain tap in Morse code on your bedroom window.

Sam Harris

When dawn was still long hours away, bad thoughts took on flesh and began to walk. In the middle of the night thoughts became zombies.

Stephen King

When I am attacked by gloomy thoughts, nothing helps me so much as running to my books. They quickly absorb me and banish the clouds from my mind.
