Journey to the Center of your Mind

Peace is not achieved by controlling nations,
but mastering our thoughts.
~John Harricharan~

The mind is its own place,
and in itself,
can make heaven of Hell,
and a hell of Heaven.
~John Milton~

The purpose of learning is growth,
and our minds, unlike our bodies,
can continue growing as we continue to live.
~Mortimer Adler~

The mind I love must have wild places,
a tangled orchard where dark damsons
drop in the heavy grass,
an overgrown little wood,
the chance of a snake or two,
a pool that nobody's fathomed the depth of,
and paths threaded with flowers
planted by the mind.
~Katherine Mansfield~

Nothing is at last sacred but the
integrity of your own mind.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson~

A mind at peace,
a mind centered and not
focused on harming others,
is stronger than any physical
force in the universe.
~Wayne Dyer~

A mind that is stretched by a new experience
can never go back to its old dimensions.
~Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr~

The greatest discovery of my generation
is that human beings can alter their lives
by altering their attitude of mind.
~William James~

Sit in reverie,
and watch the changing color
of the waves
that break upon the idle
seashore of the mind.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow~

Without meditation,
and without a relationship to your mind,
you fail to use the power of the mind.
You fail to rely on your self.
You complicate your approach.
You do not use the beautiful designs
given to you by birthright in this body,
that link the effectiveness of body,
mind, soul and you.
~Yogi Bhajan~

The mind is like an iceberg,
it floats with one-seventh of
its bulk above water.
~Sigmund Freud~

All sorts of bodily diseases
are produced
by half-used minds.
~George Bernard Shaw~

Men are not prisoners of fate,
but prisoners of their own minds.
~Franklin D. Roosevelt~

Body and mind,
like man and wife,
do not always agree to die together.
~Charles Caleb Colton~

It is discouraging to try to
penetrate a mind like yours.
You ought to get it out
and dance on it.
That would take some of
the rigidity out of it.
~Mark Twain~
