The Power of Thought Quotes

The power of thought quotes are, in essence, words of wisdom that describe (in just a few words) the potent impact that our thoughts have on our lives.

There are people who are unaware of the powerful impact that normal day-to-day thoughts have on how they see, and navigate, the world.  Research has also revealed that habitual thoughts developed in life, and housed “out-of-sight” in the subconscious, have just as much of an impact on our lives as our everyday thoughts.  If you are interested in understanding how this occurs, Dr. Joe Dispenza, in his book Becoming Supernatural, How Common People Are Doing the Uncommon (Carlsbad, California, Hay House, Inc., 2017), provides an excellent explanation.  How could thoughts that we are unaware of have such an effect? 


The power of thought quotes remind us how powerful our thoughts are!

Wise counselors assure us that our thoughts most definitely have an impact on us, even if those thoughts are unconscious.  The quotes on this page provide brilliant insights from these wise counselors on how thoughts positively, or negatively, influence our relationship to others, to situations and to the overall experience we call life. 

I invite you to be aware of the power that is stored in the quotes on this page, as they may present ideas that are vastly different from what you know or expect.  You may find yourself beginning to have radical new “thoughts!”  (Pun intended!)

Wisdom from the Power of Thought Quotes


“Thoughts become things.”  

“The more you think about something, the more you either draw it forth or perpetuate its existence in your life.  Your thoughts are not just thoughts.  They’re the building blocks of your tomorrows.”

     Dooley, Mike.  Life on Earth; Understanding Who We Are, How We Got Here, and What May Lie Ahead.  Carlsbad, California, Hay House, Inc., 2016.

“The past, present, and future are all properties of consciousness.  The past is recollection, memory; the future is anticipation; the present is awareness.  Therefore time is the movement of thought.  Both past and future are born in the imagination; only the present, which is awareness, is real and eternal.”

     Chopra, Deepak.  The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, A Practical Guide to the Fulfillment of Your Dreams.  San Rafael, CA: Amber-Allen Publishing; Novato, CA: New World Library, 1994.

“You relate to everything and everyone on this planet through the mechanism of thought.  It is not what is in the world that determines the quality of your life, it is how you choose to process your world in your thoughts.”

     Dyer, Wayne W.  You’ll See It When You Believe It. William Morrow and Company, Inc., 1989.

“You may believe that you are responsible for what you do, but not for what you think. The truth is that you are responsible for what you think, because it is only at this level that you can exercise choice. What you do comes from what you think.” 

     A Course in Miracles, T-2. VI.2:5-7. See Note 1.

“All that a man achieves and all that he fails to achieve is the direct result of his own thoughts.”

     Allen, James.  As a Man Thinketh.  Stamford, CT, Longmeadow Press, 1993.

“As he thinks, so he is; as he continues to think, so he remains.”

     Allen, James.  As a Man Thinketh.  Stamford, CT, Longmeadow Press, 1993.

“When you have a thought—any thought—that’s all it is, a thought!  It can’t hurt you without your consent.”

     Carlson, Richard. Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff…and It’s all Small Stuff.  New York, Hyperion, 1997.
