Collect Your Thoughts Quotes By Gaston Bachelard

The intellectualist philosopher who wants to hold words to their precise meaning, and uses them as the countless little tools of clear thinking, is bound to be surprised by the poet's daring.

A new environment allows the word to enter not only into one's thoughts, but also into one's daydreams. Language dreams. — Gaston Bachelard

Collect Your Thoughts Quotes By Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Collect Your Thoughts Quotes By Henry David Thoreau

To preserve wild animals implies generally the creation of a forest for them to dwell in or resort to. So it is with man. A hundred years ago they sold bark in our streets peeled from our own woods. In the very aspect of those primitive and rugged trees there was, methinks, a tanning principle which hardened and consolidated the fibres of men's thoughts. Ah! already I shudder for these comparatively degenerate days of my native village, when you cannot collect a load of bark of good thickness, and we no longer produce tar and turpentine. — Henry David Thoreau

Collect Your Thoughts Quotes By Kasie West

Collect Your Thoughts Quotes By Natalie Goldberg

Our bodies are garbage heaps: we collect experience, and from the decomposition of the thrown-out eggshells, spinach leaves, coffee grinds, and old steak bones out of our minds, come nitrogen, heat, and very fertile soil. Out of this fertile soil bloom our poems and stories. But this does not come all at once. It takes time. Continue to turn over and over the organic details of your life until some of them fall through the garbage of discursive thoughts to the solid ground of black soil. — Natalie Goldberg

Lordship" petition: It is asking God to extend his royal power over every part of our lives - emotions, desires, thoughts, and commitments.

We are asking God to so fully rule us that we want to obey him with all our hearts and with joy. — Timothy Keller

Collect Your Thoughts Quotes By San Juan De La Cruz

For whereas speaking distracts, silence and work collect the thoughts and strengthen the spirit.

There are countless ingredients that make up the human body and mind, like all the components that make up me as an individual with my own personality.

Each of those things are just a small part of it. I collect information to use in my own way. All of that blends to create a mixture that forms me and gives rise to my conscience. — Mamoru Oshii

Collect Your Thoughts Quotes By Kathy Trithardt

Disquite Sonnet
I wish that I could find the words to tell
You were it hurts; nothing breaking my skin
Slices whispering in my brain like hell
Leaking suggestions of a morose grin
Cannot collect my thoughts long enough to
Share them in an understandable way
So I lock my lips firmly and walk through
Life, searching for the perfect words to say
Trapped in my head, I seek to be let out
Grasping connections with those who might know
What it feels like, alone in a crowd, doubt
Filling my body with reasons to go
Face to face, I might not find the right phrase
But I hope someone hears me anyway — Kathy Trithardt

Collect Your Thoughts Quotes By Sherwood Smith

It is time,' he said, 'to collect on my wager.'
He moved slowly. First, his hands sliding round me and cool light-colored hair drifting against my cheek, and then softly, so softly, the brush of lips against my brow, my eyes, and then my lips. Once, twice, thrice, but not closer. The sensations - like starfire - that glowed through me chased away from my head all thoughts save one, to close that last distance between us.
I locked my fingers round his neck and pulled his face again down to mine. — Sherwood Smith

Collect Your Thoughts Quotes By Markus Zusak
