I never thought of that before!
It's my opinion that you never think at all.

A Quote by Madeleine L'Engle on thinking, words, language, cognition, and concepts

We think because we have words, not the other way around. The more words we have, the better able we are to think conceptually.

A Quote by e. e. cummings on life, spirit, thinking, and intuition

There are certain things in which one is unable to believe for the simple reason that he never ceases to feel them. Things of this sort — things which are always inside of us and in fact are us and which consequently will not be pushed off or away where we can begin thinking about them — are no longer things; they, and the us which they are, equals A Verb; an IS.

e.e. cummings (1894 - 1962)

A Quote by Iam Mabel on iam mabel and thinking

When you think more of the external things of life than that which is within, you create in consciousness a tendency to dwell on the surface

A Quote by Kenneth Smith on philosophy, thinking, and intuition

Americans are cultured from their earliest years to be either one-sided douloi or one-sided banausoi, i.e. either they cannot think abstractively/conceptually/orchestrally or else they can only think abstractively. Thinking in a truly rational dialectic between intuition and intellect is just beyond the reach of our nation of emotionalist helots. What prevails among us truly has to be called not thinking but "thinking," a pathetic surrogate for actual thinking for the benefit of existentially or modally crippled mentalities.

A Quote by Kenneth Smith on philosophy, thinking, and society

You know, the brute reality (as darkling Heraclitus perceived so many centuries ago) is that in the vast majority of human lives, the mind is not actually an asset but a liability; humans on the whole are only apt to injure themselves through the deployment of their attempts at thinking, because thinking is a sublime art at which far more is likely to go wrong than to go right by blind chance. To encourage people indiscriminately to "think more for themselves" is therefore highly irresponsible if not catastrophic. It is actually a boon, in normal social and historical circumstances, that so many humans allow others to think for them-a boon when they live in something other than a predatory and mendacious social order, a society aristic enough on the whole to bear up fiduciary responsibilities for its undercastes. Alas, moderns try to practice this thinking-for-oneself in the most culturally impoverished of all cultures and the most amorally atomistic of all societies.
