The Masters of the Mind
Mindset Quotes #1
I’ve always been a fan of great quotes, whether they be funny quotes, motivational quotes, inspirational quotes or as you may have guessed…my personal favorite…mindset quotes. The best quotes sum up in just a few words what others take paragraphs or pages to explain. And while I am an avid reader with a love of language and the written word, sometimes a powerful quote is just what I need to jump start the neurons in my brain and get my mindset back on track.
So today I’d like to give to you mindset snacks in the form of quotes from William James, the Bhagavad-Gita, John Milton’s Paradise Lost, and Spencer W. Kimball.
If you have some favorite mindset quotes you’d like to share, please feel free to post them in the comments below. I’d love to read them!
“We must deliver ourselves
with the help of our minds…
for one who has conquered the mind,
the mind is the best of friends;
but for the one who has failed to do so,
the mind will remain the greatest enemy.”
“The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven..”
― John Milton, Paradise Lost
The greatest discovery of my generation is
that man can alter his life simply by
altering his attitude of mind.
— William James
“Man alone, of all creatures of earth, can change his thought pattern and become the architect of his destiny.”
Spencer W. Kimball (often attributed to William James)
