Sublimity is the echo of a noble mind.
      - Unattributed Author,
        Longinus of the Sublime (sect. 9)

If the minds of men were laid open, we should see but little difference between them and that of the fool; there are infinite reveries and numberless extravagancies pass through both.
      - Joseph Addison

Different minds incline to different objects; one pursues the vast alone, the wonderful, the wild; another sighs for harmony and grace, and gentlest beauty.
      - Mark Akenside

The immortal mind, superior to his fate,
  Amid the outrage of external things,
    Firm as the solid base of this great world,
      Rests on his own foundation. Blow, ye winds!
        Ye waves! ye thunders! roll your tempests on!
          Shake, ye old pillars of the marble sky!
            Till at its orbs and all its worlds of fire
              Be loosen'd from their seats; yet still serene,
                The unconquer'd mind looks down upon the wreck;
                  And ever stronger as the storms advance,
                    Firm through the closing ruin holds is way,
                      When nature calls him to the destin'd goal.
      - Mark Akenside

How many minds--almost all the great ones--were formed in secrecy and solitude!
      - Matthew Arnold

Do not overwork the mind any more than the body; do everything with moderation.
      - Francis Bacon

I had rather believe all the fables in the Legends and the Talmud and the Alcoran, than that this universal frame is without a mind.
      - Francis Bacon, Essays--Of Atheism

The mind doth shape itself to its own wants, and can bear all things.
      - Joanna Baillie

The common mind is the true Parian marble, fit to be wrought into likeness to a god.
      - George Bancroft

This head has risen above its hair in a moment of abandon known only to men who have drawn their feet out of their boots to walk awhile in the corridors of the mind.
      - Djuna Barnes

The last infirmity of noble mind.
      - Jan van olden Barneveldt,
        The Tragedy of Sir John Van Olden Barneveldt

There are some cloudy days for the mind as well as for the world; and the man who has the most genius is twenty times a day in the clouds.
      - Laurent la Beaumelle

Some men are like pyramids, which are very broad where they touch the ground, but grow narrow as they reach the sky.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

Your own mind is a sacred enclosure into which nothing harmful can enter except by your permission.
      - Arnold Bennett (Enoch Arnold Bennett)

All the choir of heaven and furniture of earth--in a word, all those bodies which compose the mighty frame of the world--have not any subsistence without a mind.
      - Bishop George Berkeley,
        Principles of Human Knowledge

Finally, be ye of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous: Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing.
      - Bible, I Peter (ch. III, v. 8-9)

And they come to Jesus, and see him that was possessed with the devil, and had the legion, sittings, and clothed, and in his right mind: and they were afraid.
      - Bible, Mark (ch. V, v. 15)

One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind.
      - Bible, Romans (ch. XIV, v. 5)

Few minds wear out; more rust out.
      - Christian Nestell Bovee

Mind unemployed is mind unenjoyed.
      - Christian Nestell Bovee

It can take a surprisingly long time to get from one part of my mind to another.
      - Ashleigh Brilliant

My mind contains many good ideas, but it's not always easy to squeeze one out.
      - Ashleigh Brilliant

The failure of his mind in old age is often less the result of natural decay than of disuse. Ambition has ceased to operate; contentment brings indolence; indolence, decay of mental power, ennui, and sometimes death. Men have been known to die, literally speaking, of disease induced by intellectual vacancy.
      - Sir Benjamin Collins Brodie

Measure your mind's height by the shade it casts.
      - Robert Browning, Paracelsus (II)

A mind once cultivated will not lie fallow for half an hour.
      - Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
