Thinking Quotes A-Z by Author Thinking Quotes A-Z by Author

All that we are is the result of what we have thought. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him. If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him, like a shadow that never leaves him.
Gautama Buddha -
Thinking - Evil - Happiness - Pain

We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts we make the world.
Gautama Buddha - Thinking - Life - Motivational - Inspirational - Optimistic


I think I am, therefore I am. I think.
George Carlin - Thinking - Philosophy

They’ll get it all from you sooner or later 'cause they own this f**kin' place. It’s a big club and you ain't in it. You and I are not in the big club. By the way, it’s the same big club they use to beat you over the head with all day long when they tell you what to believe. All day long beating you over the head with their media telling you what to believe, what to think and what to buy. The table is tilted, folks. The game is rigged and nobody seems to notice. Nobody seems to care. Good, honest, hard-working people: white collar, blue collar, it doesn’t matter what color shirt you have on.
George Carlin - Media - Greed - Media - Belief - Thinking - Working Class - Middle Class

The ill effects of thought come about when we forget that thought is a function of our consciousness.. an ability that we as human beings have. We are the producers of our own thinking.
Richard Carlson - Self Help - Thinking

Noone knows exactly where thought comes from, but it can be said that thought comes from the same place as whatever it is that beats our heart.. it comes from being alive.
Richard Carlson - Life - Thinking


The trick is in what one emphasizes. We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves strong. The amount of work is the same.
Carlos Castaneda - Thinking - Strength - Miserable - Work - Positive - Negative

The kind of commitment I find among the best performers across virtually every field is a single-minded passion for what they do, an unwavering desire for excellence in the way they think and the way they work. Genuine confidence is what launches you out of bed in the morning, and through your day with a spring in your step.
Jim Collins - Commitment - Passion - Confidence - Motivational - Thinking - Work

Faith is the great cop out, the great excuse to evade the need to think and evaluate evidence. Faith is belief in spite of, even perhaps because of, the lack of evidence.
Richard Dawkins - Religion - Belief - Faith - Thinking - Facts


Many highly intelligent people are poor thinkers. Many people of average intelligence are skilled thinkers. The power of a car is separate from the way the car is driven.
Edward de Bono - Thinking - Intelligent - Optimistic

Studies have shown that 90% of error in thinking is due to error in perception. If you can change your perception, you can change your emotion and this can lead to new ideas.
Edward de Bono - Thinking - Optimistic - Mistakes - Emotion - Ideas

I think school is a place where thinking should be taught.
Edward de Bono - Thinking - Ideas - School - Teaching

Traditional thinking is all about "what is" Future thinking will also need to be about what can be.
Edward de Bono - Thinking - Ideas

Lateral thinking is concerned not with playing with the existing pieces but with seeking to change those very pieces. It is concerned with the perception part of thinking. This is where we organise the external world into the pieces we can then ‘process’.
Edward de Bono - Thinking - Change

Complacency with our traditional judgement based thinking methods is not enough. Our existing thinking habits are excellent just as the rear wheel of a motor car is excellent but not enough. We need to put far more emphasis on creative and design thinking. Judgement and analysis are not enough.
Edward de Bono - Thinking - Change - Encouragement

People who have drawn wealth into their lives used The Secret, whether consciously or unconsciously. They think thoughts of abundance and wealth, and they do allow any contradictory thoughts to take root in their minds.
Rhonda Byrne - Wealth - Thinking - Mind - Optimistic

Your life right now is a reflection of your past thoughts. That includes all the great things, and all the things you consider not so great. Since you attract to you what you think about most, it is easy to see what your dominant thoughts have been on every subject of your life, because that is what you have experienced.
Rhonda Byrne - Thinking - Life - Great
- Attraction

Be grateful for what you have now. As you begin to think about all the things in your life you are grateful for, you will be amazed at the never ending thoughts that come back to you of more things to be grateful for. You have to make a start, and then the law of attraction will receive those grateful thoughts and give you more just like them.
Rhonda Byrne - Thinking - Mind - Life - Attraction - Gratitude - Encouragement

The reason visualization is so powerful is because as you create pictures in your mind of seeing yourself with what it is you want, you are generating thoughts and feelings of having it now. Visualization is simply powerfully focused thought in pictures, and it causes equally powerful feelings.
Rhonda Byrne - Thinking - Power - Create - Mind - Feelings
- Focus

To attract money, you must focus on wealth. It is impossible to bring more money into your life when you are noticing you do not have enough, because that means you are thinking thoughts that you do not have enough.
Rhonda Byrne - Thinking - Attraction - Wealth - Focus - Money - Negative - Positive

You are the most powerful magnet in the universe! You contain a magnetic power within you that is more powerful than anything in this world, and this unfathomable magnetic power is emitted through your thoughts.
Rhonda Byrne - Thinking - Mind - Attraction - Power - Positive


Even when you think you have your life all mapped out, things happen that shape your destiny in ways you might never have imagined.
Deepak Chopra - Life
- Thinking - Planning

The way you think, the way you behave, the way you eat, can influence your life by 30 to 50 years. Most people believe that aging is universal but there are biological organisms that never age.
Deepak Chopra - Thinking
- Optimistic - Life - Belief

A happy man is too satisfied with the present to dwell too much on the future.
Albert Einstein - Happiness - Now - Thinking

We may never be strong enough to be entirely nonviolent in thought, word and deed. But we must keep nonviolence as our goal and make strong progress towards it.
Mahatma Gandhi - Challenges - Strength - Thinking - Goals

If your thinking is sloppy, your business will be sloppy. If you are disorganized, your business will be disorganized. If you are greedy, your empoyees will be greedy, giving you less and less of themselves and always asking for more.
Michael Gerber - Business - Thinking -
Employee - Greed

Love is the biggest eraser there is. Love erases even the deepest imprinting because love goes deeper then anything. If you childhood imprinting was very strong, and you keep saying: "It's their fault. I can't change," you stay stuck.
Louise Hay - Love - Thinking - Childhood - Strength - Change - Motivational

People have one of two extreme reactions to my book. They either throw it across the room, or they rush out and buy 10 copies. The message I'm giving out, that what we think about becomes true for us, and negative thoughts mean good things don't happen, isn't always easy for some people to take.
Louise Hay - Book - Thinking - Negative - Meaning
- Self Help

Explain to people that everything they say is an affirmation. Everything they think is an affirmation. Everything! What you want to do is to get control of what you are saying and thinking, so these things bring you good experiences in life rather than rotten experiences.
Louise Hay - Motivational - Thinking - Affirmation - Self Help
- Self Control - Optimistic - Life

We are what we are, because of the vibrations of thought which we pick up and register, through the stimuli of our daily environment.
Napoleon Hill - Think and Grow Rich - Thinking - Influence - Self Help


Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve. Thoughts are things! And powerful things at that, when mixed with definiteness of purpose, and burning desire, can be translated into riches.
Napoleon Hill - Thinking - Self Help - Goals - Motivational - Desire
- Achievement - Mind - Belief - Power - Rich - Purpose

Because I'm thinking in a broader way, I feel like I am able to make better decisions.
Takafumi Horie - Thinking - Decisions

It's not that I'm deliberately trying to shock people all the time. I'm just doing things that are obvious to me. It's because the public doesn't understand my way of thinking that they get surprised.
Takafumi Horie - Thinking - Innovation

If I think more about death than some other people, it is probably because I love life more than they do.
Angelina Jolie - Death

The school's just teaching you how to not think, suck prozac and drink fluoride.
Alex Jones - School - Teaching - Thinking - Evil

Cease negative mental chattering. If you think a thing is impossible, you'll make it impossible. Pessimism blunts the tools you need to succeed.
Bruce Lee - Negative - Thinking - Impossible - Success - Motivational

A good martial artist does not become tense, but ready. Not thinking, yet not dreaming. Ready for whatever may come. When the opponent expands, I contract; and when he contracts, I expand. And when there is an opportunity, "I" do not hit, "it" hits all by itself.
Bruce Lee - Fighting - Thinking - Relaxed - Opportunity - Competition


We would accomplish many more things if we did not think of them as impossible.
Vince Lombardi - Optimistic - Achievement - Thinking

College totally changed my life. It changed what I believe and what I think about everything. I majored in philosophy.
Steve Martin - School - Education - Belief - Thinking - Change

The most dangerous man to any government is the man who is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane and intolerable, and so, if he is romantic, he tries to change it. And even if he is not romantic personally he is very apt to spread discontent among those who are.
H. L. Mencken - Danger - Government -
Ideas - Thinking - Insane - Dishonest - Discontent

I believe that religion, generally speaking, has been a curse to mankind — that its modest and greatly overestimated services on the ethical side have been more than overcome by the damage it has done to clear and honest thinking.
H. L. Mencken - Thinking - Belief - Religion - Ethics - Honesty


Always think outside the box and embrace opportunities that appear, wherever they might be.
Lakshmi Mittal - Opportunities - Thinking


We both (He and Warren Buffett) insist on a lot of time being available almost every day to just sit and think. That is very uncommon in American business. We read and think. So Warren and I do more reading and thinking and less doing than most people in business. We do that because we like that kind of a life.
Charlie Munger - Smart - Thinking
- American - Business

News Corporation, today, reaches people at home and at work... when they're thinking... when they're laughing... and when they are making choices that have enormous impact.
The unique potential.. and duty.. of a media company are to help its audiences connect to the issues that define our time.
Rupert Murdoch - Responsibility - Media - Influential - Encouragement - Companies - Thinking - Help


That is the true genius of America, a faith in the simple dreams of its people, the insistence on small miracles. That we can say what we think, write what we think, without hearing a sudden knock on the door. That we can have an idea and start our own business without paying a bribe or hearing a sudden knock on the door. That we can participate in the political process without fear of retribution, and that our votes will be counted-or at least, most of the time.
Barack Obama - America - Politicians - Dreams - Fear - Miracles - Thinking - Ideas - Hope
- Business

I never think about my best interests. I think about what's the right thing to do in a situation.
Clive Palmer - Responsibility - Thinking - Positive

If you're thinking of debt, that’s what you're going to attract.
Bob Proctor - Thinking - Attraction - Debt

Nobody talks of entrepreneurship as survival, but that's exactly what it is and what nurtures creative thinking.
Anita Roddick - Entrepreneurs - Ideas

I found that when you start thinking and saying what you really want then your mind automatically shifts and pulls you in that direction. And sometimes it can be that simple, just a little twist in vocabulary that illustrates your attitude and philosophy.
Jim Rohn - Optimistic - Thinking

The man who has become a thinking being feels a compulsion to give every will-to-live the same reverence for life that he gives to his own. He experiences that other life in his own.
Albert Schweitzer - Life - Philosophy - Thinking - Compassion - Feeling

People.. especially people in positions of power.. have invested a tremendous amount of effort and time to get to where they are. They really don't want to hear that we're on the wrong path, that we've got to shift gears and start thinking differently.
David Suzuki - People - Power - Wrong - Change - Thinking

I don't claim anything of the work. It is his work. I am like a little pencil in his hand. That is all. He does the thinking. He does the writing. The pencil has nothing to do with it.
Mother Teresa - Work - God - Inspirational - Thinking

I am credited with being one of the hardest workers and perhaps I am, if thought is the equivalent of labour, for I have devoted to it almost all of my waking hours. But if work is interpreted to be a definite performance in a specified time according to a rigid rule, then I may be the worst of idlers. Every effort under compulsion demands a sacrifice of life-energy. I never paid such a price. On the contrary, I have thrived on my thoughts.
Nikola Tesla - Hard Work - Thinking - Work - Sacrifice


There are two levels to your pain: the pain that you create now, and the pain from the past that still lives on in your mind and body. Ceasing to create pain in the present and dissolving past pain - this is what I want to talk about now.
Eckhart Tolle - Now - Pain - Create - Thinking

All cravings are the mind seeking salvation or fulfillment in external things and in the future as a substitute for the joy of Being. As long as I am my mind, I am those cravings, those needs, wants, attachments, and aversions, and apart from them there is no "I" except as a mere possibility, an unfulfilled potential, a seed that has not yet sprouted.
Eckhart Tolle - Happiness - Thinking - Spiritual

Your mind is an instrument, a tool. It is there to be used for a specific task, and when the task is completed, you lay it down. As it is, I would say about 80 to 90 percent of most people's thinking is not only repetitive and useless, but because of its dysfunctional and often negative nature, much of it is also harmful. Observe your mind and you will find this to be true. It causes a serious leakage of vital energy.
Eckhart Tolle - Truth - Thinking - Negative - Energy

Fear arises through identification with form, whether it be a material possession, a physical body, a social role, a self-image, a thought, or an emotion. It arises through unawareness of the formless inner dimension of consciousness or spirit, which is the essence of who you are. You are trapped in object consciousness, unaware of the dimension of inner space which alone is true freedom.
Eckhart Tolle - Truth - Spiritual - Thinking - Fear - Assets - Emotion - Ego - Freedom

Thinking, or more precisely identification with thinking, gives rise to and maintains the ego, which, in our Western society in particular, is out of control. It believes it is real and tries hard to maintain its supremacy. Negative states of mind, such as anger, resentment, fear, envy, and jealousy, are products of the ego.
Eckhart Tolle - Thinking - Fear - Ego - Self Control - Belief - Negative - Anger


Internal and external are ultimately one. When you no longer perceive the world as hostile, there is no more fear, and when there is no more fear, you think, speak and act differently. Love and compassion arise, and they affect the world.
Eckhart Tolle - World - Love - Spiritual - Thinking - Fear - Compassion


A major stimulant to creative thinking is focused questions. There is something about a well-worded question that often penetrates to the heart of the matter and triggers new ideas and insights.
Brian Tracy - Questions - Thinking - Ideas

The worst things in history have happened when people stop thinking for themselves, especially when they allow themselves to be influenced by negative people. That’s what gives rise to dictators. Avoid that at all costs. Stop it first on a personal level, and you will have contributed to world sanity as well as your own.
Donald Trump - Thinking - Negative - People

I like thinking big. If you're going to be thinking anything, you might as well think big.
Donald Trump - Goals - Thinking


We think about all of our tomorrows, but we don't know how many there are, so let's start making the most of our Todays!
Ivana Trump - Life - Thinking - Motivational

It's not just the emotional, intellectual, and physical gaps between you and money. The real gap is always between what you think you want and what you actually want, deep down.
Stuart Wilde - Intelligent - Money - Thinking
- Emotions

Each moment of our life, we either invoke or destroy our dreams. We call upon it to become a fact, or we cancel our previous instructions.
Stuart Wilde - Dreams - Life - Thinking


The older I get, the more centered I become and the more I think I really know about myself. What I know is that what other people do doesn't really have any effect on me.
Oprah Winfrey - Self Help - Thinking
