Jennifer Niven
“I do my best thinking at night when everyone else is sleeping. No interruptions. No noise. I like the feeling of being awake when no one else is.”
Jennifer Niven, All the Bright Places

“It was one of those days when I was thinking too much, too fast. Only it was more like the thoughts had a mind of their own and going all by themselves at a hundred miles a second, and I was just sitting back, feeling the growing paranoia inside of me.”
Sasha Mizaree

Anthony Horowitz
“Sometimes it's the tiniest things that can mean the difference between life and death.”
Anthony Horowitz, Ark Angel

A.E. Housman
“The thoughts of others
Were light and fleeting,
Of lovers' meeting
Or luck or fame.
Mine were of trouble,
And mine were steady;
So I was ready
When trouble came.”
A.E. Housman, More Poems

Hermann Hesse
“I realize that some people will not believe that a child of little more than ten years is capable of having such feelings. My story is not intended for them. I am telling it to those who have a better knowledge of man. The adult who has learned to translate a part of his feelings into thoughts notices the absence of these thoughts in a child, and therefore comes to believe that the child lacks these experiences, too. Yet rarely in my life have I felt and suffered as deeply as at that time.”
Hermann Hesse, Demian: Die Geschichte von Emil Sinclairs Jugend

Anthony Horowitz
“I don't know what I'd do without you. There's no one else to look after me. And it's not just that. I sometimes think you're the only person who really knows me. I only feel normal when I'm with you.”
Anthony Horowitz, Ark Angel

Deborah Day
“Every goal first started as something in our mind. You have it all within you!”
Deborah Day, BE HAPPY NOW!

Franny Billingsley
“Thoughts are strange creatures. They lead you from one thing to another. Sometimes you don’t know how you got from one to the next.”
Franny Billingsley, Chime

José Saramago
“Somos o que pensamos, e dizemos aquilo que pensamos com palavras. Se as palavras são tão mal usadas, deturpadas, mal pronunciadas muitas vezes, que pensamento podem expressar? Isso é frustrante.”
José Saramago

Charles Chaplin
“Само интелект и никакви чувства - това е характерно за съвършения престъпник; само чувства и никакъв интелект - това е образецът на безвредния луд. Но когато интелектът и чувствата са идеално уравновесени, се получава отличният актьор.”
Charles Chaplin, My Autobiography

Jenny Downham
“I sit up in bed and watch her fiddle about in the back of my wardrobe. I think she's got a plan. That's what's good about Zoey. She'd better hurry up though, because I'm starting to think of things like carrots. And air. And ducks. And pear trees. Velvet and silk. Lakes. I'm going to miss ice. And the sofa. And the lounge. And the way Cal loves magic tricks. And white things- milk, snow, swans.”
Jenny Downham, Before I Die

“The seed of every sin known to man is in my heart”.”
Robert Murray McCheyne

Patricia Highsmith
“What chance combination of shadow and sound and his own thoughts had created it?”
Patricia Highsmith, Strangers on a Train

Russell Brand
“This is no time for drinking a mug of water - which you would do nowhere else in the world. A mug of water! You just don't drink water from mugs, do ya? Except on the telly. Water out of a mug! Should be a hot drink... mug of water.”
Russell Brand

Marian Keyes
“I forced myself to stop thinking about it. I went to the room in my brain where all my thoughts about Adam lived and disconnected the electricity and boarded up all the doors and windows, so nothing could get out.
Obviously it was very unsightly. There were bound to be complaints from the neighboring thoughts. But I had no choice.”
Marian Keyes, Watermelon

Toba Beta
“Synergy between thoughts and feelings
reads the universe like an opened book.”
Toba Beta, My Ancestor Was an Ancient Astronaut

Walter Mosley
“That’s how Ptolemy imagined the disposition of his memories, his thoughts: they were still his, still in the range of his thinking, but they were, many and most of them, locked on the other side a closed door that he’s lost the key for. So his memory became like secrets held away from his own mind. But these secrets were noisy things; they babbled and muttered behind the door, and so if he listened closely he might catch a snatch of something he once knew well.”
Walter Mosley, The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey

Christine Rice
“Reality is based on, and controlled by, our thoughts.”
Christine Rice

Leena Ahmad Almashat
“My ideas aren't afraid of height.”
Leena Ahmad Almashat, Harmony Letters

Stella Gibbons
“While she lay there with these old worn thoughts coming obediently into her mind, called there by habit and the familiar quiet of early morning, she was aware that at the back of her mind there was another thought that was not at all stale, but so fresh that it was nearly a feeling, with all a feeling's delicious power to kill thought.”
Stella Gibbons, Nightingale Wood

Jack Kerouac
“And what do I think about? What thoughts do I have! - What thoughts! a whole host, multitude, and world of thoughts, I keep devising new ones and reworking old ones, some of the old ones are concluded and are only thought of as conclusions, whole worlds of new ones come crashing into my fingers, and it never ends.”
Jack Kerouac, Windblown World: The Journals of Jack Kerouac 1947-1954

Terri Windling
“Although I've written a few (a very few) poems over the years, I am not a natural poet...and I remain in awe of people who are. The ability to evoke deep emotion, reveal a new facet of the world, or condense an entire story into the limited space and form of a poem (or likewise, of a good song lyric, or the text for a children's picture book) seems like pure magic to me.”
Terri Windling

“Two thoughts cannot coexist at the same time: if the clear light of mindfulness is present, there is no room for mental twilight.”
Nyanaponika Thera

Sylvia Plath
“Dziewicza strona, biała. Pierwsza skalana i odrzucona. Wszystkie te marzenia, obietnice: czekanie, aż będę mogła znowu pisać, a potem bolesny, sfuszerowany gwałt na pierwszej kartce.”
Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath

Virginia Woolf
“How readily our thoughts swarm upon a new object, lifting it a little way, as ants carry a blade of straw so feverishly, and then leave it.”
Virginia Woolf

Vera Nazarian
“Thoughts are slippery fish in a cold shallow stream.

If you are intent on capturing a worthwhile one, you need to stand very still, focus very hard on somewhere outside yourself, and then simply ignore it until it gets so close that it tickles your ankles.

Then, pounce.”
Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration

“X is for X-mas Concentrate your energies, your thoughts and your capital. Put all your eggs in one basket and then watch that basket, then all your Christmases can come at once!”
Lucas Remmerswaal, The A-Z of 13 Habits: Inspired by Warren Buffett

محمد الشموتي
“عادةً ما يكونُ الإنسانُ الهادئ مُشتعلاً في داخله، ليسَ شرطاً أن يكونَ الهدوءُ علامةَ المثالية، المثالية ليست هادئةً أبداً، إنها تبدو كذلك من على السطح فقط، أما في العمق، تحتَ القشرة الخارجيةِ، فالإنسانُ المثالي: مُتناقضٌ بطبعه، يكتظُّ عقله بمئات الأفكار والتجارب التي ليس لها فُرصةٌ للخروج في ظلِّ خمولٍ فكري عام، وانتفاء أي بيئةٍ خصبة لازدهار الأفكار ونموها.”
محمد الشموتي

Charlotte Eriksson
“I was free with every road as my home. No limitations and no commitments. But then summer passed and winter came and I fell short for safety. I fell for its spell, slowly humming me to sleep, because I was tired and small, too weak to take or handle those opinions and views, attacking me from every angle. Against my art, against my self, against my very way of living. I collected my thoughts, my few possessions and built isolated walls around my values and character. I protected my own definition of beauty and success like a treasure at the bottom of the sea, for no one saw what I saw, or felt the same as I did, and so I wanted to keep to myself.
You hide to protect yourself.”
Charlotte Eriksson, Another Vagabond Lost To Love: Berlin Stories on Leaving & Arriving
