All that a man does outwardly is but the expression and completion of his inward thought. To work effectually, he must think clearly; to act nobly, he must think nobly.

      - William Ellery Channing

It is because we underrate thought, because we do not see what a great element it is in religious life, that there is so little of practical and consistent religion among us.

      - Arthur Hugh Clough,
        Ah, yet Consider it Again

Many of the finest and most interesting emotions perish forever, because too complex and fugitive for expression. Of all things relating to man, his feelings are perhaps the most evanescent, the greater part dying in the moment of their birth. But while emotions perish, thought blended in diction is immortal.
      - William Benton Clulow

A single thought is that which it is from other thoughts as a wave of the sea takes its form and shape from the waves which precede and follow it.

One thought includes all thought, in the sense that a grain of sand includes the universe.
      - Samuel Taylor Coleridge
