One must live the way one thinks or end up thinking the way one has lived.
      - Paul Bourget

To think is to differ.
      - Clarence Darrow

Come, come, it's only the passions that make you think.
      - Madame Marie Anne du Deffand,
        to Horace Walpole

Every thinker puts some portion of an apparently stable world in peril.
      - John Dewey

The best thinking has been done in solitude. The worst ahs been done in turmoil.
      - Thomas Alva Edison

I think and think for months and years. Ninety-nine times, the conclusion is false. The hundredth time I am right.

Life consists in what a man is thinking of all day.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Man Thinking; him Nature solicits with all her placid, all her monitory pictures; him the past instructs; him the future invites. Is not indeed every man a student, and do not all things exist for the student's behoof? And, finally, is not the true scholar the only true master? But the old oracle said, "All things have two handles: beware of the wrong one."
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson, The American Scholar,
        Phi Beta Kappa Address

      - Henry Ford

Let us read with method, and propose to ourselves an end to what our studies may point. The use of reading is to aid us in thinking.
      - Edward Gibbon

Thinking is more interesting than knowing, but less interesting than looking.
      - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

The mind is seldom quickened to very vigorous operations but by pain, or the dread of pain.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

Thinking in pictures precedes thinking in words.
      - Immanuel Kant

To endeavor to forget anyone is a certain way of thinking of nothing else.
      - Jean de la Bruyere

Think for yourself and question authority.
      - Timothy Leary

Think wrongly, if you please, but in all cases think for yourself.
      - Doris Lessing

We must think anew--and act anew.
      - Abraham Lincoln

Where all think alike, no one thinks very much.
      - Walter Lippmann

Those who have read of everything are though to understand everything too; but it is not always so--reading furnishes the mind only with materials of knowledge; it is thinking that makes what is read ours. We are of the ruminating kind, and it is not enough to cram ourselves with a great load of collections; unless we chew them over again, they will not give us strength and nourishment.
      - John Locke (1)

All deep, earnest thinking is but the intrepid effort of the soul to keep the open independence of her sea, while the wildest winds of heaven and earth conspire to cast her on the treacherous, slavish shore.
      - Herman Melville

Labels are devices for saving talkative persons the trouble of thinking.
      - John Morley, 1st Viscount of Blackburn
