What a person thinks on his own without being stimulated by the thoughts and experiences of the other people is even in the best case rather paltry and monotonous.
      - Albert Einstein

Crowing thought makes growing revelation.
      - George Eliot (pseudonym of Mary Ann Evans Cross)

Ingenious philosophers tell you, perhaps, that the great work of the steam-engine is to create leisure for mankind. Do not believe them; it only creates a vacuum for eager thought to rush in.
      - George Eliot (pseudonym of Mary Ann Evans Cross)

For thoughts are so great--aren't they, sir? They seem to lie upon us like a deep flood; and it's my besetment to forget where I am and everything about me, and lose myself in thoughts that I could give no account of, for I could neither make a beginning nor ending of them in words.
      - George Eliot (pseudonym of Mary Ann Evans Cross),
        Adam Bede (ch. VIII)

Our growing thought
  Makes growing revelation.
      - George Eliot (pseudonym of Mary Ann Evans Cross),
        The Spanish Gypsy (bk. II)

A man is what he thinks about all day long.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

A vivid thought brings the power to paint it; and in proportion to the depth of its source is the force of its projection.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

All the thoughts of a turtle are turtle.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

By virtue of the Deity thought renews itself inexhaustibly every day and the thing whereon it shines, though it were dust and sand, is a new subject with countless relations.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Great thoughts ensure musical expression.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

In fact, it is as difficult to appropriate the thoughts of others as it is to invent.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Look sharply after your thoughts. They come unlooked for, like a new bird seen on your trees, and, if you turn to you usual task, disappear; and you shall never find that perception again; never, I say--but perhaps years, ages, and I know not what events and worlds may lie between you and its return!
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Our best thought came from others.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

The ancestor of every action is a thought.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

The key to every man is his thought. Sturdy and defying though he look, he has a helm which he obeys, which is the idea after which all his facts are classified. He can only be reformed by showing him a new idea which commands his own.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

The walls of rude minds are scrawled all over with facts, with thoughts. They shall one day bring a lantern and read the inscriptions.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

There is no thought in any mind, but it quickly tends to convert itself into a power, and organizes a huge instrumentality of means.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Thought is the property of him who can entertain it, and of him who can adequately place it.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Thought is the seed of action.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Thought takes man out of servitude into freedom.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Thoughts come into our minds by avenues which we never left open, and thoughts go out of our minds through avenues which we never voluntarily opened.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Thoughts rule the world.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

When the great God lets loose a thinker on this planet, then all things are at risk. There is not a piece of science, but its flank may be turned to-morrow; there is not any literary reputation, nor the so-called eternal names of fame, that may not be revised and condemned.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

With thought, with the ideal, is immortal hilarity, the rose of joy. Round it all the muses sing.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

The revelation of thought takes men out of servitude into freedom.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson, Conduct of Life--Fate
