Nine Thoughts For The Thinking Person

Think about the power of your thoughts and change your life.

  1. Change your thoughts and you change your world.  —Norman Vincent Peale
  2. 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
  3. The soul becomes dyed with the color of its thoughts. —Marcus Aurelius
  4. By verbalizing your deepest thoughts and feelings, you take them out of the realm of intangible into the realm where material and intangible meet. You begin to actually change the routes your thoughts usually take, and charter new territory. You also make space inside to listen to that still, small voice. You’ll have made space to hear the answers God sends you. You and the Creator are the co-therapists, the co problem solvers, co life changers. —C.R. Zwolinski
  5. As the plant springs from, and could not be without, the seed, so every act of man springs from the hidden seeds of thought, and could not have appeared without them. —James Allen
  6. The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking. —Albert Einstein
  7. A sick thought can devour the body’s flesh more than fever or consumption. —Guy De Maupassant
  8. The trouble with most people is that they think with their hopes or fears or wishes rather than with their minds. —Will Durant
  9. The mind can’t hold two thoughts at once so try replacing a negative thought with a positive one.  —Rebbe Nachman of Breslov
