H.P. Lovecraft
“The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents... some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new Dark Age.”
H.P. Lovecraft

Brandon Sanderson
“Ignorance is hardly unusual, Miss Davar. The longer I live, the more I come to realize that it is the natural state of the human mind. There are many who will strive to defend its sanctity and then expect you to be impressed with their efforts.”
Brandon Sanderson, The Way of Kings

J.R. Ward
“Indeed, the human mind appeared to suffer from a crippling need to fabricate in the absence of concrete proof.”
J.R. Ward, Lover Mine

“We are here to become great men and women, and with that purpose in view, we must eliminate everything in our religion and philosophy that tends to make the human mind a dependent weakling. If you would serve God and be truly religious, do not kneel before God, but learn to walk with God, and do something tangible every day to increase the happiness of mankind. This is religion that is worth while, and it is such religion alone that can please the Infinite.”
Christian D. Larson, Your Forces and How to Use Them

Pierre-Simon Laplace
“We ought to regard the present state of the universe as the effect of its antecedent state and as the cause of the state that is to follow. An intelligence knowing all the forces acting in nature at a given instant, as well as the momentary positions of all things in the universe, would be able to comprehend in one single formula the motions of the largest bodies as well as the lightest atoms in the world, provided that its intellect were sufficiently powerful to subject all data to analysis; to it nothing would be uncertain, the future as well as the past would be present to its eyes. The perfection that the human mind has been able to give to astronomy affords but a feeble outline of such an intelligence.”
Pierre Simon de Laplace

Orson Scott Card
“Twisted and perverse are the ways of the human mind," Jane intoned. "Pinocchio was such a dolt to try to become a real boy. He was much better off with a wooden head.”
Orson Scott Card, Speaker for the Dead

Edmund Burke
“The human mind is often, and I think it is for the most part, in a state neither of pain nor pleasure, which I call a state of indifference.”
Edmund Burke, A Philosophical Enquiry into the Origin of our Ideas of the Sublime and Beautiful

Sylvia Plath
“The human mind is so limited it can only build an arbitrary heaven — and usually the physical comforts they endow it with are naively the kind that can be perceived as we humans perceive — nothing more. No: perhaps I will awake to find myself burning in hell. I think not. I think I will be snuffed out. Black is sleep; black is a fainting spell; and black is death, with no light, no waking.”
Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath

Amit Abraham
“The two great movers of the human mind are the desire of good and the fear of evil.”
Dr. Amit Abraham, Personality Development Through Positive Thinking

“It used to be obvious that the world was designed by some sort of intelligence. What else could account for fire and rain and lightning and earthquakes? Above all, the wonderful abilities of living things seemed to point to a creator who had a special interest in life. Today we understand most of these things in terms of physical forces acting under impersonal laws. We don't yet know the most fundamental laws, and we can't work out all the consequences of the laws we do know. The human mind remains extraordinarily difficult to understand, but so is the weather. We can't predict whether it will rain one month from today, but we do know the rules that govern the rain, even though we can't always calculate their consequences. I see nothing about the human mind any more than about the weather that stands out as beyond the hope of understanding as a consequence of impersonal laws acting over billions of years.”
Steven Weinberg

Kate Furnivall
“She always paid attention to fingers rather than faces because they told so much more. People remembered to guard their faces. They forgot their hands. Her own were small, though strong and supple from all the hours of piano playing, but what use was that now? For the first time she understood what real danger does to the human mind, as flat white fear froze the coils of her brain.”
Kate Furnivall, The Jewel of St. Petersburg

Charles Darwin
“But then arises the doubt, can the mind of man, which has, as I fully believe been developed from a mind as low as that possessed by the lowest animal, be trusted when it draws such grand conclusions?”
Charles Darwin

John Christopher
“Morality, for all the conditioning to which the human mind has been and is subjected, is always a personal choice in the last analysis.”
John Christopher, Sweeney's Island

Virginia Woolf
“I do not believe that gifts, whether of mind or character, can be weighed like sugar and butter”
Virginia Woolf, A Room of One's Own

Zahir Raihan
“লড়াই শুধু রাজার সঙ্গে রাজার, এক জাতের সঙ্গে অন্য জাতের আর এক দেশের সঙ্গে অন্য দেশেরই হয় না। একটি মনের সাথে অন্য একটি মনেরও লড়াই হয়।”
Zahir Raihan, শেষ বিকেলের মেয়ে

Marilynne Robinson
“Earthly nature may be parsimonious, but the human mind is prodigal, itself an anomaly that in its wealth of error as well as of insight is exceptional, utterly unique as far as we know, properly an object of wonder.”
Marilynne Robinson

François-René de Chateaubriand
“ô enfance du coeur humain qui ne vieillit jamais! voilà donc à quel degré de puérilité notre superbe raison peut descendre! Et encore est-il vrai que bien des hommes attachent leur destinée à des choses d'aussi peu de valeur que mes feuilles de saule.”
François-René de Chateaubriand, René

Michael Bassey Johnson
“There are two most important doors in a person’s life:
1. The door of talent.
2. The door of grace.
When one or two of these outlets are open, anything is possible.”
Michael Bassey Johnson, The Book of Maxims, Poems and Anecdotes

Santosh    Kumar
“I am well aware of the human mind, and those who still think they can fool me are the biggest fool on the planet, I will simply ignore them from now onwards.”
Santosh Kumar (San)

“And if the pain does eventually stop, afterwards, with the passage of time, even the mind that has experienced it becomes unable to comprehend it, unable to remember how bad it truly was, unable to describe it so as to even approach the terrible truth of what it felt like when it was happening.”
George R.R. Martin, The Glass Flower

“No pandemic is powerful enough to uproot the brand experiences from the memory of a living person. People survive, so do brands.”
Lukhman Pambra

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
“Wär' nicht das Auge sonnenhaft,
Wie könnten wir das Licht erblicken?
Lebt' nicht in uns des Gottes eigne Kraft,
Wie könnt' uns Göttliches entzücken?”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Santosh    Kumar
“It is true that human mind can blindly accept infinite motion.”
Santosh Kumar (San)

Mehmet Murat ildan
“Even if mankind manages to be immortal in a mortal universe, this time it must find a way to make the universe immortal too! Every problem in this universe seems like an impossible task, but the most important feature of the human mind is that it does not see impossible tasks as impossible!”
Mehmet Murat ildan

to our own understanding.”

Abhijit Naskar
“The world grows when the mind grows, the world falls when the mind falls.”
Abhijit Naskar, Generation Corazon: Nationalism is Terrorism

Abhijit Naskar
“Sonnet of Chemical Reality

The universe is our reflection,
We are the reflection of the universe.
What is inside is also outside,
What is outside is also inside of us.
No reality exists without human control,
Reality outside our control is imagination.
Mental chemicals produce all reality,
All can be altered with mindful action.
Mind is mightier than muscle,
Kindness is braver than cruelty.
All reform is born of mental chemicals,
Reform yourself and there'll be universality.
Truth beyond perception is futile speculation.
Let's focus on life and improve human condition.”
Abhijit Naskar, Generation Corazon: Nationalism is Terrorism

Abhijit Naskar
“Space is not the final frontier, humanity is, the full manifestation of humanity, above the influence of biases, for it is much easier to conquer outer space than inner space.”
Abhijit Naskar, Mucize Insan: When The World is Family
