All thoughts that mould the age begin
  Deep down within the primitive soul.
      - James Russell Lowell,
        An Incident in a Railroad Car

Thoughts have no sex.
      - Clare Boothe Luce

A penny for your thought.
      - John Lyly (Lylie or Lyllie), Euphues

The old thoughts never die. Immortal dreams
  Outlive their dreamers and are ours for aye;
    No thought once form'd and utter'd cart expire.
      - Charles Mackay

The universe is transformation; our life is what our thoughts make it.
      - Marcus Aurelius (Marcus Aurelius Antoninus)

Annihilating all that's made
  To a green thought in a green shade.
      - Andrew Marvell, the Younger, The Garden,

Sometimes a dark thought crossed my fancy, like the sullen bat that flies athwart the melancholy moon at eve.
      - Owen Meredith (pseudonym of Edward Robert Bulwer Lytton, Lord Lytton)

Thought alone is eternal.
      - Owen Meredith (pseudonym of Edward Robert Bulwer Lytton, Lord Lytton)

Grand Thoughts that never can be wearied out,
  Showing the unreality of Time.
      - Richard Monckton Milnes, Lord Houghton,
        Sonnet to Charles Lamb

Those thoughts that wander through eternity.
      - John Milton

Thoughts that voluntary move
  Harmonious numbers.
      - John Milton, Paradise Lost
         (bk. III, l. 37)

No thought without phosphorus.
  [Ger., Ohne Phosphor kein Gedanke.]
      - Jacob Moleschott, Lehre der Nahrungsmittel
         (II, 1, 4)

His thoughts have a high aim, though their dwelling be in the vale of a humble heart.
      - Michel Eyquem de Montaigne

Beautiful thoughts flit across the brain, like butterflies in the sun's rays, and are as difficult to capture.
      - Anna C. Mowatt

Make your best thoughts into action.
      - Madame Suzanne Curchod Necker

It is often said that second thoughts are best. So they are in matters of judgment, but not in matters of conscience. In matters of duty, first thoughts are commonly best. They have more in them of the voice of God.
      - Cardinal John Henry Newman

All truly great thoughts are conceived while walking.
      - Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche

Every thought was once a poem.
      - Charles Henry Parkhurst

All our dignity lies in our thoughts.
      - Blaise Pascal

I can readily conceive of a man without hands or feet; and I could conceive of him without a head, if experience had not taught me that by this he thinks, Thought then, is the essence of man, and without this we cannot conceive of him.
      - Blaise Pascal

Man is but a reed, the weakest in nature, but he is a thinking reed.
      - Blaise Pascal, Thoughts (ch. II, 10)

We met, and we drank from the crystalline well,
  That flows from the fountains of science above;
    On the beauties of thought we would silently dwell,
      Till we looked--though we never were talking of love.
      - James Gates Percival

Thought can wing its way
  Swifter than lightning-flashes or the beam
    That hastens on the pinions of the morn.
      - James Gates Percival, Sonnet

Thinking leads man to knowledge. He may see and hear, and read and learn, as much as he please; he will never know any of it, except that which he has thought over, that which by thinking he has made the property of his mind. Is it then saying too much if I say, that man by thinking only becomes truly man? Take away thought from man's life, and what remains?
      - Johann Pestalozzi

Ours is the age of thought; hearts are stronger than swords.
      - Wendell Phillips
