Music is the pleasure the human mind experiences from counting without being aware that it is counting.
It is proof of a base and low mind for one to wish to think with the masses or majority, merely because the majority is the majority. Truth does not change because it is, or is not, believed by a majority of the people.
I don't make enemies, it's just I'm not afraid to speak my mind, which can sometimes mean people don't like what I am saying.
Every now and then a man's mind is stretched by a new idea or sensation, and never shrinks back to its former dimensions.
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
Never mind what others do; do better than yourself, beat your own record from day to day, and you are a success.
William J. H. Boetcker
Everyone confesses that exertion which brings out all the powers of body and mind is the best thing for us; but most people do all they can to get rid of it, and as a general rule nobody does much more than circumstances drive them to do.
Harriet Beecher Stowe
Your mind is a magnet. You don't attract what you need or what you want; you attract who you are. And I love who I am!
My mind is always racing.
The flesh endures the storms of the present alone; the mind, those of the past and future as well as the present. Gluttony is a lust of the mind.
Let's face it - think of Africa, and the first images that come to mind are of war, poverty, famine and flies. How many of us really know anything at all about the truly great ancient African civilizations, which in their day, were just as splendid and glorious as any on the face of the earth?
