Norman Maclean
“At sunrise everything is luminous but not clear.”
Norman Maclean, A River Runs Through It and Other Stories

Criss Jami
“I like solitude. It is when you truly hear and speak your natural, unadulterated mind, and out comes your most stupid self as well as your most intelligent self. It is when you realize who you are and the extents of the good and the evils which you are capable of.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy

Vera Nazarian
“The world is shaped by two things — stories told and the memories they leave behind.”
Vera Nazarian, Dreams of the Compass Rose

“A positive attitude is most easily arrived at through a deliberate and rational analysis of what’s required to manifest unwavering positive thought patterns. First, reflect on the actual, present condition of your mind. In other words, is the mind positive or not? We’ve all met individuals who perceive themselves as positive people but don’t appear as such. Since the mind is both invisible and intangible, it’s therefore easier to see the accurate characteristics of the mind through a person’s words, deeds, and posture.

For example, if we say, “It’s absolutely freezing today! I’ll probably catch a cold before the end of the day!” then our words expose a negative attitude. But if we say, “The temperature is very cold” (a simple statement of fact), then our expressions, and therefore attitude, are not negative. Sustaining an alert state in which self-awareness becomes possible gives us a chance to discover the origins of negativity. In doing so, we also have an opportunity to arrive at a state of positiveness, so that our words and deeds are also positive, making others feel comfortable, cheerful, and inspired.”
H.E. Davey

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

“We are not trapped by our thoughts. What we generally do, however, is create thoughts that trap us.” (p.162)”
Joshua David Stone, A Beginner's Guide to the Path of Ascension (The Ascension Series)

Steve Maraboli
“The universe doesn’t give you what you ask for with your thoughts; it gives you what you demand with your actions. In essence, you don't get what you WANT, you get what you ARE.”
Steve Maraboli, Unapologetically You: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience

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

Teresa Mummert
“There is no greater feeling of accomplishment than to create a world that solely exists in your imagination and be able to pull someone into this hidden place inside of my thoughts. To make someone care for a person that has manifested from my dreams, to make them hate me for putting them in danger, and for them to ask to be taken on another journey with me when it is all said and done is why I write.”
Teresa Mummert

Jodi Picoult
“What I mean is that those thoughts, they're human. And just because you turn out differently than everyone's imagined you would doesn't mean that you've failed in some way. A kid who gets teased in one school might move to a different one, and be the most popular girl there, just because no one has any other expectations of her. Or a person who goes to med school because his entire family is full of doctors might find out that what he really wants to be is an artist instead.”
Jodi Picoult, My Sister's Keeper

Nenia Campbell
“Nobody wants to believe that existence carries on without at least taking a stumble from their departure of this world.”
Nenia Campbell, Terrorscape

Stephen Richards
“Reflect your thoughts and watch others mirror them back to you.”
Stephen Richards

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

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

Jeremy Aldana
“I believe that thoughts and feelings reside on the same nerve-ending…they are called heartstrings”
Jeremy Aldana

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

George Eliot
“For there is no creature whose inward being is so strong that it is not greatly determined by what lies outside it.”
George Eliot, Middlemarch

William Plomer
“It is the function of creative people to perceive relations between thoughts, or things, or forms of expressions that seem utterly different, and to be able to Connect the seemingly Unconnected".”
William Plomer

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

Robert G. Ingersoll
“I have made up my mind to say my say. I shall do it kindly, distinctly; but I am going to do it. I know there are thousands of men who substantially agree with me, but who are not in a condition to express their thoughts. They are poor; they are in business; and they know that should they tell their honest thought, persons will refuse to patronize them—to trade with them; they wish to get bread for their little children; they wish to take care of their wives; they wish to have homes and the comforts of life. Every such person is a certificate of the meanness of the community in which he resides. And yet I do not blame these people for not expressing their thought. I say to them: 'Keep your ideas to yourselves; feed and clothe the ones you love; I will do your talking for you. The church can not touch, can not crush, can not starve, cannot stop or stay me; I will express your thoughts.”
Robert G. Ingersoll, The Liberty of Man, Woman and Child

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

“It was during my enchanted days of travel that the idea came to me, which, through the years, has come into my thoughts again and again and always happily—the idea that geology is the music of the earth.”
Hans Cloos, Conversation with the Earth

Laura Esquivel
“...being able to listen to unrepeatable secrets, wishes, and desires wasn't as wonderful as it seemed...being aware of what other people felt at every moment would come to cause him a lot of headaches, and huge disappointments in love.”
Laura Esquivel, Swift as Desire

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

Dejan Stojanovic
“Entering a cell, penetrating deep as a flying saucer to find a new galaxy would be an honorable task for a new scientist interested more in the inner state of the soul than in outer space.”
Dejan Stojanovic

“You always supposed to have that i'm number 1 mentality,don't let anyone make you feel like you is number 2 when they not even worth being number 1 !!!”

James Allen
“دع إنساناً يغير اتجاه أفكاره، وسوف تتملكه الدهشة لسرعة التحوّل الذي يحدثه هذا التغير في جوانب حياته المتعددة. إن القدرة الإلهية التي تكيف مصايرنا مودعة في أنفسنا، بل هي أنفسنا ذاتها!!

وكل ما يصنعه المرء هو نتيجة مباشرة لما يدور في فكره، فكما أن المرء ينهض على قدميه وينشط وينتج بدافع من أفكاره كذلك يمرض ويشقى بدافع من أفكاره أيضأ.”
James Allen

“I want to douse myself in silver words
and whisper away all rue.”
Basith, Autopsy of the seasons

Raheel Farooq
“Everyone is born with a different mind and the same heart.”
Raheel Farooq
