WHAT REMARKABLE THINKERS THINK ABOUT THINKING.
Hello and welcome,
My journey into learning about and understanding the science of thought, mind etc began four years ago on the basis of the following two quotes.
1. The proliferation of ‘things’ of all kinds and ‘lives’ of all kinds presents one unbroken chain of evidence to support the fact that man is the maker of his own destiny; and his thoughts and his acts are the tools with which he does the making . Albert Einstein. (I'm sure Albert should have included women as well)!
2. Thought is the original source of all wealth, all success, all material gain, all great discoveries and inventions and of all achievements. Claude M. Bristol.
Below are few more quotes to, 'make the point'. They come from ‘thought leaders’ who have confirmed my findings, belief and experience. They are a selection of quotes from a wide range of great thinkers who, like myself, learned to understand and unleash the proven power of the human mind and its products, thoughts.
Read, copy, paste, learn and use the ones that ‘grab your thinking’ the most! (If you don't know the names of some of the 'quoters', Google them.)

Thought is the parent of the deed. Thomas Carlyle.
