  That man might ne'er be wretched for his mind.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Life of Timon of Athens

Our purses shall be proud, our garments poor,
  For 'tis the mind that make the body rich;

      So honor peereth in the meanest habit.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Taming of the Shrew
         (Petruchio at IV, iii)

Now the melancholy god protect thee, and the tailor make thy doublet of changeable taffeta, for thy mind is a very opal.

Man's mind a mirror is of heavenly sights,
  A brief wherein all marvels summed lie,
    Of fairest forms and sweetest shapes the store,
      Most graceful all, yet thought may grace them more.
      - Robert Southwell,
        Content and Rich (Look Home)

It is the mind that maketh good or ill,
  That maketh wretch or happy, rich or poor.
      - Edmund Spenser

The mind has a certain vegetative power, which cannot be wholly idle. If it is not laid out and cultivated into a beautiful garden, it will of itself shoot up in weeds or flowers of a wild growth.
      - Sir Richard Steele

Sublime is the dominion of the mind over the body, that for a time, can make flesh and nerve impregnable, and string the sinews like steel, so that the weak become so mighty.

The very might of the human intellect reveals its limits.
      - Madame Anne Sophie Swetchine (Soimonoff)

The garden of the mind.
      - Lord Alfred Tennyson

A flower more sacred than far-seen success
  Perfumes my solitary path; I find
    Sweet compensation in my humbleness,
      And reap the harvest of a quiet mind.
      - John Townsend Trowbridge, Twoscore and Ten
         (st. 28)

Sound intelligence promises victory in every battle.
      - Chuang Tzu (Zhuangzi)

The greatest tragedy that can befall a person is the atrophy of his mind.

The blessing of an active mind, when it is in a good condition, is, that it not only employs itself, but is almost sure to be the means of giving wholesome employment to others.

    Et servare modum, rebus sublata secundis.]
