Thought Quotations

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.
Abraham Lincoln

I don't believe you have to be better than everybody else. I believe you have to be better than you ever thought you could be.
Ken Venturi

Thomas Jefferson Quote
The glow of one warm thought is to me worth more than money.
Thomas Jefferson

It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.

As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.
Henry David Thoreau
