A Quote by William Blake on life, perception, and thought

  If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear
to man as it is: infinite.
  For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things thro' narrow
chinks of his cavern.

William Blake (1757 - 1827)

A Quote by David Berlinski on math, algorithm, calculation, definition, thought, matter, and computer

More than sixty years ago, mathematical logicians, by defining precisely the concept of an algorithm, gave content to the ancient human idea of an effective calculation. Their definitions led to the creation of the digital computer, an interesting example of thought bending matter to its ends.

A Quote by Count Leo Nikolaevich Tolstoi or Tolstoy on reason, attachment, ideas, stubborness, thought, and argument

I know that most men, including those at ease with problems of the greatest complexity, can seldom accept even the simplest and most obvious truth if it be such as would oblige them to admit the falsity of conclusions which they have delighted in explaining to colleagues, which they have proudly taught to others, and which they have woven, thread by thread, into the fabric of their lives.

Leo Tolstoy (1828 - 1910)

A Quote by Jiddu Krishnamurti on sleep, organization, wake up, thought, and progress

Some go to sleep in an organization and never wake up, and those who do wake up put them selves to sleep again by joining another. This acquisitive movement is called expansion of thought, progress.

A Quote by Dhammapada The Buddha on self-mastery, think, thought, mind, trouble, follow, wheel, ox, car, world, speech, action, pure mind, happiness, shadow, enemy, mastered, and unguarded

We are what we think.
All that we are arises with our thoughts.
With our thoughts we make the world.
Speak or act with an impure mind
And trouble will forllow you
As the wheel follows the ox that draws the cart.

We are what we think.
All that we are arises with our thoughts.
With our thoughts we make the world.
Speak or act with a pure mind
And happiness will follow you
As your shadow, unbreakable.

How can a troubled mind
Understand the way?

Your worst enemy cannot harm you
As much as your own thoughts, unguarded.

But once mastered,
No one can help you as much,
Not even your father or your mother.

Dhammapada The Buddha

A Quote by Charles Nodier on nature, name, being, memory, name, and thought

There is something marvelously soft in the study of nature which attaches a name to every being, a thought to every name, affection and memories to every thought.

A Quote by Bertrand Arthur William Russell on glory, thought, revolution, habit, hell, and freedom

"Men fear thought as they fear nothing else on earth -- more than ruin -- more even than death.... Thought is subversive and revolutionary, destructive and terrible, thought is merciless to privilege, established institutions, and comfortable habit. Thought looks into the pit of hell and is not afraid. Thought is great and swift and free, the light of the world, and the chief glory of man."

Bertrand Russell (1872 - 1970)
