OUR THOUGHTS

If our thoughts make us what we are, and we are to be like Christ, then we must think Christ like thoughts. - Gordon B. Hinckley (submitted by Alexa)

What goes on in our mind is not really private, in a sense, because it affects our behavior and our attitudes towards others and towards life. - Spencer W. Kimball

A man is literally what he thinks, his character being the complete sum of his thoughts. - Spencer W. Kimball

Psychologically sound and true as the gospel is the biblical phrase "As (a man) thinketh in his heart, so is he... (Prov.23:7). Thoughts Lift our souls heavenward or drag you down toward Hell. He who sows thoughts will reap acts, habits, and character; for destiny itself is determined by the thinking. Life is won or lost by its master thoughts. -David O. McKay

That record that is written by the man himself in the tablets of his own mind-that record that cannot lie-will be unfolded before God and Angels, and those who sit as judges. - John Taylor

If we think evil thoughts, our tongues will utter unclean sayings...If our minds are centered on the carnality and evil of the world, then worldliness and unrighteousness will seem to us to be the normal way of life. If we ponder things related to sexual immortality in our minds we will soon think everybody is immoral and unclean and it will break down the barrier between us and the world, And so with every other unwholesome, unclean, impure and ungodly course. - Bruce R. McConkie

Let a man radically alter his thoughts, and he will be astonished at the rapid transformation it will effect in the material conditions of his life. Men imagine that thought can be kept secret, but it cannot, it rapidly crystallizes into habits, and habit solidifies into circumstances. - James Allen

How could a person possibly become what he is not thinking? Nor is any thought, when persistently entertained, too small to have its effect. The divinity that shapes our ends is indeed ourselves. - Spencer W. Kimball
