One might feel that, at my age, I should look on life with more gravity. After all, I’ve been privileged to listen, firsthand, tosome of the most profound thinkers of my daywho were all beset by gloom over the condition the world had gotten into. Then why can’t I view it with anything but amusement?

Desiderius Erasmus

Johannes Kepler
The actors in Britain are incredible, and I didn’t appreciate that until I got there. They interpret your words and you realize how deliberate and thoughtful they are. There are great American actors, too, don’t get me wrong, but the technique that British actors have is something really special.

Jenna Fischer
I’ve developed some deep relationships over the past couple of years blogging and I realize that those relationships manifest themselves in the links I find when I do my x a daily ego search over at Technorati.
Jason Calacanis
I had to be frugal, thoughtful, resourceful. I didn’t have anyone to tell me, ‘You can’t.’ When you’re young, you think you can do anything, and that was really a gift. That’s why I can never understand someone telling me ‘no’ today. ‘No’ just isn’t an option.
Sandra Lee

Hugh Jackman
Give back in some way. Always be thoughtful of others.
Jackie Joyner-Kersee
As you get older and more thoughtful, you carry stuff with you. Your kids get older, you take on their sorrows, you enjoy their triumphs. Life doesn’t always go to plan.

Shrinking away from death is something unhealthy and abnormal which robs the second half of life of its purpose.

Caroline Polachek
We admire predators – panthers, lions, tigers, even wolves. Maybe to be naturally thoughtful and hesitant to use violence is to be somehow second rate. To be in the middle of the social food chain. Especially if you’re a man. This society thinks real men are violent.
Marge Piercy
The upside to grief is it takes away your appetite. When people say you look good they really mean it. Nature’s thoughtful that way.

For ever so our thoughtful hearts repeatOn fields of triumph dirges of defeat;And still we turn on gala-days to treadAmong the rustling memories of the dead.

Woodrow Wilson

Kristin Cashore
Man’s real life is happy, chiefly because he is ever expecting that it soon will be so.
Edgar Allan Poe
We are losing sight of civility in government and politics. Debate and dialogue is taking a back seat to the politics of destruction and anger and control. Dogma has replaced thoughtful discussion between people of differing views.
James McGreevey
Experience and imagination must enter into the very constitution of our thoughts involving concrete individuals.
Zeno Vendler
The more popular a person thinks he is in the blogosphere, the thinner his skin and the thicker his hypocrisy. This should be exactly the opposite: the higher you go the thicker the skin and thinner the hypocrisy.

John Wooden
Many a time I have wanted to stop talking and find out what I really believed.

Independent cinema is more thoughtful, delicate. While Western blockbusters can have their own kind of delicateness, it’s not delicate enough. You have to be ready to compromise to enter that field. I will do so only if it’s worth it.

Leland Stanford
Those old adages – you attract more with honey; do unto others – are true. You can get attention by being acerbic or mean or making a bizarre comment.

Shelley Moore Capito
Any Supreme Court confirmation needs to be a thoughtful process, with full respect for the separation of powers outlined in the Constitution.

Nina Dobrev
Cultivating a thoughtful citizenry is a project for educators, parents, and religious and community leaders as much as tech leaders.

John Lott documents how far ‘politically correct’ vested interests are willing to go to denigrate anyone who dares disagree with them. Lott has done us all a service by his thorough, thoughtful scholarly approach to a highly controversial issue.
Milton Friedman
Practical gifts are another great way to be thoughtful, and they work for anything from birthdays to dinner-party gifts.
Phoebe Cates

There hung a darkness, call it solitude
Or blank desertion.
William Wordsworth
We are always the same age inside.

Wendy O. Williams
I’ve interviewed multiple people who know bin Laden… who tend to have a universal picture of what he’s like, which is: modest, retiring, unassuming, kind of thoughtful – lots of things that don’t fit with a mass murderer, which he is as well.

For better or worse, you must play your own little instrument in the orchestra of life.

Better to illuminate than merely to shine; to deliver to others contemplated truths than merely to contemplate.
Thomas Aquinas
I’m a lot smarter and thoughtful of a comedian. This market is different than it was. You don’t have to have cable to hear this comedy. It comes on a basic channel, and that’s one of the biggest differences between now than when I first started.
Joe Torry
The thing that I loved about growing up Mormon is that I had morals and standards instilled in me as a kid – like, you need to be a nice person, and a thoughtful person, and if anybody is trying to dog that, then I think that’s rude.
Julianne Hough

Colin Cowherd
Ill health is also a blessing. The flesh and the ego are weakened and contemplation of God becomes easier.
My focus is always on the day. What I’ve done behind me, I try to have respect for it, and keep an eye on it, and make sure it isn’t abused, and obviously be thoughtful about it, because it’s all real to me. I’m basically in every band I ever was in, and the songs, I still mean them all.

Carl Jung
Generalization is always a new influx of divinity into the mind. Hence the thrill that attends it.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Peter Singer
There is always some madness in love. But there is also always some reason in madness.
Friedrich Nietzsche

William James
To write long pieces – or not even long pieces – to write stuff like the columns of Red Smith and people like that – they’re different then what it is today. Everything today is based on x’s and o’s. Inside baseball, it’s all, ‘Who’s gonna win?’ or you’re comparing things – it’s not as thoughtful as it used to be.
Frank Deford

Jeff Ross
In the beginning I thought that metal was something scary, but I learned how thoughtful and amazing metal is. I’m so honored to be a part of it.

Barack Obama
I am hungry to be interrupted
For ever and ever amen
O Person from Porlock come quickly
And bring my thoughts to an end.
Stevie Smith
The funeral is a quiet one, despite the number of mourners present. There are no sobs or flailing handkerchiefs. There is a smattering of color amongst the sea of traditional black. Even the light rain cannot push it down into the realms of despair. It rests instead in a space of thoughtful melancholy.
Erin Morgenstern
Ideally, our rules should be formed in such a fashion that an ordinary helpful kind thoughtful person doesn’t really even need to know the rules. You just get to work, do something fun, and nobody hassles you as long as you are being thoughtful and kind.
Jimmy Wales
Thoughtful education programs and access to effective forms of contraception are key to preventing unplanned pregnancy.
Kristen Soltis Anderson
I thought Obama was brilliant. He’s so informed. He’s circumspect. He’s articulate. He’s thoughtful. Well, I think in my lifetime, there’s never been anything like it.

I think the Republicans have really thoughtful financial policies, and I’m more in the middle on taxation.
Jamie Dimon
We are born, we grow up, we live our lives as best we can. If we are thoughtful we are good parents and good partners. If we are wise we strive for integrity and intimacy. If we are fortunate we discover love and joy. If we are able, we make the world a little better than we found it.
Robert Reich
The robbed that smiles, steals something from the thief.
William Shakespeare

Martha Nussbaum
Most of us, swimming against the tides of trouble the world knows nothing about, need only a bit of praise or encouragement – and we will make the goal.
Jerry Fleishman
Just when you thought the mafia novel was dead, Tod Goldberg breathes new life into it. Gangsterland, the best mafia novel in years, is a dark, funny, and smart page-turning crime story. It’s also a moving, thoughtful meditation on ethics, religion, family, and a culture that eats itself. I loved this book.
Sara Gran
Congress must take some thoughtful and targeted steps towards long-term solvency in the Social Security program. One such step is to eliminate the cap on income that is taxed for Social Security.
Mike Quigley
The strips about the military do seem to provoke moving and thoughtful responses. It’s nice when the strip resonates, but more importantly, I need to know when I’m getting something wrong. The last thing I want to do is contribute to the suffering that wounded warriors already endure.
Garry Trudeau
Though we cannot totally change our nature, we may in great measure correct it by reflection and philosophy; and some philosophy is a very necessary companion in this world, where, even to the most fortunate, the chances are greatly against happiness.
Lord Chesterfield
I think of myself as a human being.
Bruce Lee

John F. Kennedy
As our domestic fowls are said to have their original in the wild pheasant of India, so our domestic thoughts have their prototypes in the thoughts of her philosophers.
Henry David Thoreau
Nothing can be compared to the new life that the discovery of another country provides for a thoughtful person. Although I am still the same I believe to have changed to the bones.

Mother Teresa
All men are prepared to accomplish the incredible if their ideals are threatened.
Maya Angelou
Tom Paine was a great American visionary. His book, Common Sense, sold a couple of hundred thousand copies in a population of four or five million. That means it was a best seller for years. People were thoughtful then. Hope is one thing. But you need to have hope with thought.

Mother Teresa
Today it is becoming increasingly apparent to thoughtful Americans that we cannot fight the forces and ideas of imperialism abroad and maintain any form of imperialism at home. The war has done this to our thinking.
Wendell Willkie
Innovation and thoughtful visual storytelling are deeply woven into the fabric of Getty Images.
Mark Getty
I’m trying to mediate between individual agency and structural determination.

Gautama Buddha
Freethinkers are occasionally thoughtful, though never free.

Agnes Meyer Driscoll
A rocket is an experiment; a star is an observation.

Alternating the thoughtful task of writing with the mindless work of laundry or dish washing will give you the breaks you need for new ideas and insights to occur. If you don’t know what comes next in the story… clean your toilet. Change the bed sheets. For Christ sakes, dust the computer. A better idea will come.
Chuck Palahniuk
People like to think about MPs in very crass terms: you’re either an uber-loyalist babe, or you’re a rebel. There isn’t any grown-up room to be thoughtful. There isn’t space in public debate for that.

Accomplishment will prove to be a journey, not a destination.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
Jazz today, as always in the past, is a matter of thoughtful creation, not mere unaided instinct.
Duke Ellington
Love is not necessarily about grand gestures. It can be the little things, like someone knows you like a certain food so they pick it up for you. Stuff like that is sweet. It’s little things that are nice and thoughtful that you can do every day.

Jeanie Buss
When somebody is enthusiastic about a job opportunity – but gives off the feeling that this is not the only one they have on the table – they become more seductive in the employer’s eyes. You become more desirable because it shows that you’re making a conscious and thoughtful decision for the right reasons.
Peter Guber
How do you get ‘feng shui’ out of ‘thoughtful’?
Maggie Stiefvater
The best of a book is not the thought which it contains, but the thought which it suggests; just as the charm of music dwells not in the tones but in the echoes of our hearts.

We have a lot of thoughtful people in the U.S. Senate.
Marco Rubio
I’ve never dieted in my life; I like food too much. I’m just thoughtful about what I eat, and I’m lucky that I love the taste of vegetables. I’m certainly not ‘actress skinny,’ and I never will be. I’m strong, and my body works great for me.
Sarah McLachlan
What is to give light must endure burning.
Viktor E. Frankl
What I would like to write is a book about nothing, a book without exterior attachments, which would be held together by the innerforce of its style, as the earth without support is held in the air–a book that would have almost no subject or at least in which the subject would be almost invisible.

Gregory Benford
We shall draw from the heart of suffering itself the means of inspiration and survival.
Winston Churchill
The velocity and knee-jerk response to events happening in real time that television brings us precludes any kind of reflection or contemplation and therefore analysis.

Jon Favreau
I’ll just be the first to say that Ken [Watanabe] should be a national treasure in Japan, because he is an unbelievably talented actor. You couldn’t find more of a gentleman. He’s sweet, he’s kind and he’s extremely thoughtful in the work that he does.

Abraham Lincoln

Jimmy Carter

Katharine Viner
It’s always a huge red flag for me when somebody’s reticent or reluctant or a little slow in providing thoughtful references that are a testament to them as a person and their professional accomplishments.
Ivanka Trump
Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.
Lucille Ball
One of the thoughtful questions we could be asking is, “Have you ever gone to Google and typed in 20 week baby or 20 week fetus? Try it and click on the images.” Suddenly your friend will see what a 20-week-old baby looks like in the womb. That image is clearly a unique life.
Steve Daines

Patrick Ness
Scientists are skeptics. It’s unfortunate that the word ‘skeptic’ has taken on other connotations in the culture involving nihilism and cynicism. Really, in its pure and original meaning, it’s just thoughtful inquiry.

C. S. Lewis
There’s certainly satire written about techies, but it’s so snarky and snide and doesn’t treat him as a whole person. The people I worked with at Twitter – they’re very analytical, but they’re also deep and thoughtful – I feel like they deserved a charismatic spokesperson.
Robin Sloan
Thoughtful men must feel that the fate of civilization upon this continent is involved in the issue of our contest. Among the most satisfying proofs of this conviction is the hearty devotion everywhere exhibited by our schools and colleges to the national cause.

Jill Soloway
As soon as man does not take his existence for granted, but beholds it as something unfathomably mysterious, thought begins.

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
In animation and comics, the viewer breezes past the drawings. But with picture books, each page is going to be stared at and touched and read over and over. Maybe even chewed on a little. Everything needs to be thoughtful and economical, thirty-two little masterpieces.
Vera Brosgol
I think coming to work and being absurd and neurotic and thoughtful at the same time is far more interesting.

Michael Swanwick
People think I appear on television to promote my image. That’s not fair. I hate filming. I turned down ‘Strictly Come Dancing.’ But television is a wonderful opportunity to promote scientific ideas. ‘Super Doctors’ is a very thoughtful piece.
