Before men we stand as opaque bee-hives. They can see the thoughts go in and out of us; but what work they do inside of a man they cannot tell. Before God we are as glass bee-hives, and all that our thoughts are doing within us he perfectly sees and understands.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

Thinking is creating with God, as thinking is writing with the ready writer; and worlds are only leaves turned over in the process of composition, about his throne.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

Unless a man can link his written thoughts with the everlasting wants of men, so that they shall draw from them as from wells, there is no more immortality to the thoughts and feelings of the soul than to the muscles and the bones.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

Our century is a brutal thinker.
      - Pierre Jean de Beranger

I imagine that thinking is the great desideratum of the present age; and the cause of whatever is done amiss may justly be reckoned the general neglect of education in those who need it most, the people of fashion. What can be expected where those who have the most influence have the least sense, and those who are sure to be followed set the worst examples?
      - Bishop George Berkeley

Eat thou not the bread of him that hath an evil eye, neither desire thou his dainty meats:
  For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.
      - Bible, Proverbs (ch. XXIII, v. 6-7)

One thought fills immensity.
      - William Blake

Thoughts come maimed and plucked of plumage from the lips, which, from the pea, in the silence of your own leisure and study, would be born with far more beauty.
      - Lady Marguerite Blessington, Countess of Blessington

Sow a thought, and reap an act; sow an act, and you reap a habit; sow a habit, and you reap a character; sow a character, and you reap a destiny.
      - quoted by George Dana Boardman, the younger

Never express yourself more clearly than you think.
      - Niels Henrik David Bohr,
        Einstein Lived Here

The habit of reflecting gives an inner life, which all that we see animates and embellishes. In this disposition of the soul everything becomes an object of thought. If the young botanist trembles with joy at the sight of a new plant, the moral botanist joys no less to see germinate around him truths with a much superior prize to that of an unknown flower.
      - Carl Victor de Bonstetten

The busiest of living agents are certain dead men's thoughts.
      - Christian Nestell Bovee

The greatest events of an age are its best thoughts. It is the nature of thought to find its way into action.
      - Christian Nestell Bovee

We should round every day of stirring action with an evening of thought. We learn nothing of our experience except we muse upon it.
      - Christian Nestell Bovee

No thought which ever stirred
  A human breast should be untold.
      - Robert Browning

Stung by the splendour of a sudden thought.
      - Robert Browning

All that we are is the result of what we have thought; it is founded on our thoughts, it is made up of our thoughts. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him, as the wheel follows the foot of him who draws the carriage.
      - Buddha (Gautama Buddha)

Man thinks, and at once becomes the master of the beings that do not think.
      - George-Louis Leclerc de Buffon

Earnest men never think in vain, though their thoughts may be errors.
      - Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Thought is valuable in proportion as it is generative.
      - Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton,
        Caxtoniana (essay XIV)

I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see. The longer I live the more my mind dwells upon the beauty and the wonder of the world.
      - John Burroughs

The first thought is often the best.
      - Bishop Joseph Butler,
        Sermon on the Character of Balaam--Seventh Sermon

Many men's thoughts are not acorns, but merely pebbles.
      - Charles Buxton

Constant thought will overflow in words unconsciously.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

Could we but keep our spirit to that height,
  We might be happy; but the clay will sink
    Its thoughts immortal.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)
