Today let’s look at quotations on thinkers and thinking.

First please check out my post Taking The Long View at Mindculture’s Blog. That should give you a lot of food for thought.

Next we go to some of the thinking quotes that took my fancy. Nothing can beat the first one though:

Poirot,” I said. “I have been thinking.”
“An admirable exercise my friend. Continue it.”

~ Agatha Christie in Peril at End House


“We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses.”
~Abraham Lincoln


“you can, you should, and if you’re brave enough to start, you will.”
~Stephen King in On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft


“The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking.
It cannot be changed without changing our thinking.”
~Albert Einstein


“We are addicted to our thoughts.
We cannot change anything if we cannot change our thinking.”
~Santosh Kalwar in Quote Me Everyday


“Thoughts Become Things… Choose The Good Ones!”
~Mike Dooley


“Always think extra hard before crossing over to a bad side, if you were weak enough to cross over, you may not be strong enough to cross back!”
~Victoria Addino


“The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindled.”

Spend a moment on that last one. Most of our education systems are based on the premise that the mind is a vessel… and they don’t bother about kindling fires, getting us to think for ourselves.

Check out my post Have You Been Educated Out of Creativity and view the video.

Here’s another scary thought:

“Whoever controls the media, controls the mind”
~Jim Morrison
