Fully to understand a grand and beautiful thought requires, perhaps, as much time as to conceive it.
      - Joseph Joubert

In the interchange of thought use no coin but gold and silver.
      - Joseph Joubert

It may be said that it is with our thoughts as with our flowers. Those whose expression is simple carry their seed with them; those that are double by their richness and pomp charm the mind, but produce nothing.
      - Joseph Joubert

Thoughts there are, that need no embodying, no form, no expression. It is enough to hint at them vaguely; a word, and they are heard and seen.
      - Joseph Joubert

Flowing water is at once a picture and a music, which causes to flow at the same time from my brain, like a limpid and murmuring rivulet, sweet thoughts, charming reveries, and melancholy remembrances.
      - Alphonse Karr (Jean Baptiste Alphonse Karr)

A moment's thought is passion's passing knell.
      - John Keats (1)

Sudden a thought came like a full-blown rose,
  Flushing his brow.
      - John Keats (1), The Eve of St. Agnes
         (st. 16)

People do not like to think. If one thinks, one must reach conclusions. Conclusions are not always pleasant.
      - Helen Adams Keller

Thought on thought pressed o'er his soul, like those ocean waves, which tore thee, distant America, from the three continents.
      - Friedrich O. Klopstock

One can see him [Thiers] think through his skin.
      - Alphonse de Lamartine

Alas, we make a ladder of our thoughts, where angels step, but sleep ourselves at the foot; our high resolves look down upon our slumbering act.
      - Letitia Elizabeth Landon (Mrs. George MacLean)

For thought, all bodiless, will soar above; and thus her Maker's image can display,--a boon nor time nor place nor death shall snatch away.
      - William Henry Leatham

Thoughts, like fleas, jump from man to man. But they don't bite everybody.
      - Stanislaw Lec

Thought is the measure of life.
      - Charles Godfrey Leland

Reflection increases the vigor of the mind, as exercise does the strength of the body.
      - Duc de Levis, Gaston Pierre Marc

The thoughts that come often unsought, and, as it were, drop into the mind, are commonly the most valuable of any we have, and therefore should be secured, because they seldom return again.
      - John Locke (1), Letter to Samuel Bold

His thoughts are like mummies, embalmed in spices and wrapped about with curious envelopments; but, within, those thoughts themselves are kings.
      - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Thought takes man out of servitude, into freedom.
      - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

A thought often makes us hotter than a fire.
      - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow,

The surest pledge of a deathless name
  Is the silent homage of thoughts unspoken.
      - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow,
        Herons of Elmwood (st. 9)

My own thoughts
  Are my companions.
      - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow,
        Masque of Pandora
         (pt. III, Towers of Prometheus on Mount Caucasus)

Thoughts so sudden, that they seem
  The revelations of a dream.
      - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow,
        Prelude to Tales of a Wayside Inn
         (pt. I, l. 233)

Men's thoughts and opinions are in a great degree vassals of him who invents a new phrase or re-applies an old epithet. The thought or feeling a thousand times repeated becomes his at last who utters it best.
      - James Russell Lowell

The material of thought re-acts upon the thought itself.
      - James Russell Lowell

Through aisles of long-drawn centuries my spirit walks in thought.
      - James Russell Lowell
