Mental Prison quotes by Ayaan Hirsi Ali
#1. The trap of resentment. It is probably the worst mental prison in the world. It is the inability to let go of anger and the perceived or real injustices we suffer. Some people let one or two, or maybe ten unpleasant experiences poison the rest of their lives. They let their anger ferment and rot their personality. They end up seeing themselves as victims of their parents, teachers, their peers and preachers. #Quote by Ayaan Hirsi Ali
Mental Prison quotes by Steve Maraboli
#2. Most haters are stuck in a poisonous mental prison of jealousy and self-doubt that blinds them to their own potentiality. #Quote by Steve Maraboli
Mental Prison quotes by Archibald Marwizi
#3. The accumulation of beliefs, knowledge and experiences contribute to our level of success and progress in life, however they also introduce the reality that we are all prejudiced. If not well managed, our personal prejudices can become the mental prison we lock ourselves inside or we use to shut others out. You need to deal with this likely impediment to a success-driven lifestyle. #Quote by Archibald Marwizi
Mental Prison quotes by Karen A. Baquiran
#4. She took his verbal punches and she felt silenced under the mental prison that he had held her in. She looked perfect on the outside, but her body expressed her pain. Her soul was crystallized, permanently on survival-mode. He thought he was smart, but he had no idea that he was married to a lotus. She rose every time because she knew he could not take away her worth. She knew she was meant to have more. She loved herself through the horror, and regained her ability to keep walking, to keep breathing, to keep living. She rose peacefully like the lotus, elegant and full of class, untouched by his filthy, meaningless existence... and that had always left him powerless. #Quote by Karen A. Baquiran
Mental Prison quotes by Joshua Wolf Shenk
#5. Lincoln's story confounds those who see depression as a collection of symptoms to be eliminated. But it resonates with those who see suffering as a potential catalyst of emotional growth. "What man actually needs," the psychiatrist Victor Frankl argued,"is not a tension-less state but rather the striving and struggling of a worthwhile goal." Many believe that psychological health comes with the relief of distress. But Frankl proposed that all people-- and particularly those under some emotional weight-- need a purpose that will both draw on their talents and transcend their lives. For Lincoln, this sense of purpose was indeed the key that unlocked the gates of a mental prison. This doesn't mean his suffering went away. In fact, as his life became richer and more satisfying, his melancholy exerted a stronger pull. He now responded to that pull by tying it to his newly defined sense of purpose. From a place of trouble, he looked for meaning. He looked at imperfection and sought redemption. #Quote by Joshua Wolf Shenk
Mental Prison quotes by Jeremy Rifkin
#6. We are beginning to learn that an empathic moment requires both intimate engagement and a measure of detachment. If our feelings completely spill over into another's feelings or their feelings overwhelm our psyche, we lose a sense of self and the ability to imagine the other as if they were us. Empathy is a difficult balancing act. One has to be open to experiencing another's plight as if it were one's own but not be engulfed by it, at the expense of drowning out the self's ability to be a unique and separate being. Empathy requires a porous boundary between I and thou that allows the identity of two beings to mingle in a shared mental space.
- The Empathic Civilization: The Race to Global Consciousness in a World in Crisis #Quote by Jeremy Rifkin
Mental Prison quotes by Kathryn McCormick
#7. Dance is a physical and mental workout. Once you get your body moving, you'll see a difference. #Quote by Kathryn McCormick
Mental Prison quotes by Aristotle.
#8. The soul never thinks without a mental picture. #Quote by Aristotle.
Mental Prison quotes by Sigmund Freud
#9. If we throw a crystal to the floor, it breaks; but not into hap-hazard pieces. It comes apart along its lines of cleavage into fragments whose boundaries, thought they were invisible, were predetermined by the crystal's structure. Mental paitents are split and broken structures of this same kind.... They have turned away from external reality, but for that very reason they know more about internal, physical reality... #Quote by Sigmund Freud
Mental Prison quotes by Brian Tracy
#10. All improvement in your life begins with an improvement in your mental pictures. #Quote by Brian Tracy
Mental Prison quotes by Nicki Minaj
#11. Chef cookin for me They say my shoe game crazy The mental asylum lookin for me #Quote by Nicki Minaj
Mental Prison quotes by Edward O. Wilson
#12. No species, ours included, possesses a purpose beyond the imperatives created by its genetic history. Species may have vast potential for material and mental progress but they lack any immanent purpose or guidance from agents beyond their immediate environment or even an evolutionary goal toward which their molecular architecture automatically steers them. #Quote by Edward O. Wilson
Mental Prison quotes by Prentice Mulford
#13. Parents sometimes forget that after the child emerges from the utter physical and mental helplessness of infancy, it is becoming more and more an individual. #Quote by Prentice Mulford
Mental Prison quotes by Antonio Damasio
#14. When you deal with something like compassion for physical pain, which we know is very, very old in evolution - we can find evidence for it in nonhuman species - the brain processes it at a faster speed. Compassion for mental pain took many seconds longer. #Quote by Antonio Damasio
Mental Prison quotes by Bob Cousy
#15. In whatever sport of field of endeavor you are interested, you should do whatever is necessary to compliment your God-given talent with proper mental preparation so as to do "the best you can." The criterion should be to fully exploit your potential rather than to win at any cost. What more could anyone ever ask of you than to be the best you possibly can? #Quote by Bob Cousy
Mental Prison quotes by Michael L. Williams Jr.
#16. When you are up in life your friends get to know who you are. When you are down in life you get to know who your friends are.

Mental Prison quotes by Craig Davidson
#17. You might think my chosen career would lend me insight…. But while I can tell you about the brain as a physical object…, beyond that I am a glorified techie. I know the nuts and bolts and can diagnose flaws within the mainframe. While I can identify and sometimes fix structural maladies within that organ, I do not remotely understand it. That is an impossible task, like trying to guess the path rainwater will take down a windowpane. There is simply no way to know with any accuracy what is happening inside someone else's head. I only faintly comprehend what is going on inside my own. #Quote by Craig Davidson
Mental Prison quotes by Alex Cox
#18. Because there is actually something very interesting in Goodfellas, how the style of the film changes as time goes by and based on the mental state of the protagonist. #Quote by Alex Cox
Mental Prison quotes by Bill Maher
#19. Karl Rove thinks we shouldn't have Hillary Clinton in the White House because she fell and hit her head a couple years ago, spent three days in the hospital, and maybe she has brain damage. You know, I don't recall the Republicans being this concerned with mental fitness during the years when Reagan was talking to house plants in the White House. #Quote by Bill Maher
Mental Prison quotes by Brian Tracy
#20. Combine your mental images with the emotion of desire to accelerate their realization. #Quote by Brian Tracy
Mental Prison quotes by Stanley Victor Paskavich
#21. PTSD in its rawest form is a death sentence which causes many veterans and others to execute themselves in hope to be free. #Quote by Stanley Victor Paskavich
Mental Prison quotes by Noam Chomsky
#22. It hardly takes more than a day in Gaza to begin to appreciate what it must be like to try to survive in the world's largest open-air prison. #Quote by Noam Chomsky
Mental Prison quotes by Sally Brampton
#23. I am growing to hate the vague declarations of psychiatric treatment, the airy cross-your-fingers pronouncements. The treatment of mental health is an inexact science. But, as I am slowly coming to understand, depression is an inexact illness. #Quote by Sally Brampton
Mental Prison quotes by Steven Magee
#24. There is nothing to be lost by experimenting with the sickened human mind and body. #Quote by Steven Magee
Mental Prison quotes by Dorothea Dix
#25. Of all the calamities to which humanity is subject, none is so dreadful as insanity ... All experience shows that insanity seasonably treated is as certainly curable as a cold or a fever. #Quote by Dorothea Dix
Mental Prison quotes by Daniel Kahneman
#26. Mental effort, I would argue, is relatively rare. Most of the time we coast. #Quote by Daniel Kahneman
Mental Prison quotes by Gian Andrea
#27. I can remember only one thing.
I want to be bigger.
I want to be better.
I want - people -, to need me. #Quote by Gian Andrea
Mental Prison quotes by Harriet Tubman
#28. I knew of a man who was sent to the State Prison for twenty-five years. All these years he was always thinking of his home, and counting by years, months, and days, the time till he should
be free, and see his family and friends once more. #Quote by Harriet Tubman
Mental Prison quotes by David Dark
#29. The movement called Christianity cannot be understood apart from the Jewish concept of shalom. The Christian gospel does not call people to give their mental assent to a certain list of correct propositions, nor does it provide its adherents with a password that will gain them disembodied bliss when they die and the pleasure of confidently awaiting their escape until then. Shalom is a way of being in the world. The Christian gospel invites us to partake in shalom, to embody shalom, and to anticipate its full realization in the coming kingdom of God. #Quote by David Dark
Mental Prison quotes by Raimundo Arruda Sobrinho
#30. Material Hygiene, Mental Hygiene; Here, I don't know which is harder to practice. #Quote by Raimundo Arruda Sobrinho
Mental Prison quotes by The Harvard Lampoon
#31. Quick, I told myself. Try to remember what you learned from Jimbo's Self Defence for Young Ladies. Jimbo was a beefy man with prison tats.
"Go into the nearest dark alley," I recalled Jimbo saying. "Freeze like a rabbit or the creature you desire your attacker to mistake you for. If your attacker shouts out to you, respond politely - maybe your optimism will change his mind. If you're about to get into an elevator with a man you feel uncomfortable spending time with in a small, escapeless room, head right in. Remember , fear i an irrational emotion, you should probably ignore it."
Armed with these tips, I hung a right into the nearest dead-end, curled into a ball and started rolling. #Quote by The Harvard Lampoon
Mental Prison quotes by Pierre Teilhard De Chardin
#32. The machine not only does it relieve us mechanically of a crushing weight of physical and mental labor; but by the miraculous enhancing of our senses, through its powers of enlargement, penetration and exact measurement, it constantly increases the scope and clarity of our perceptions. It fulfills the dream of all living creatures by satisfying our instinctive craving for the maximum of consciousness with a minimum of effort! Having embarked upon so profitable a path, how can Mankind fail to pursue it? #Quote by Pierre Teilhard De Chardin
Mental Prison quotes by Richard Dawkins
#33. With so many mind-bytes to be downloaded, so many mental codons to be replicated, it is no wonder that child brains are gullible, open to almost any suggestion, vulnerable to subversion, easy prey to Moonies, Scientologists and nuns. Like immune-deficient patients, children are wide open to mental infections that adults might brush off without effort. #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Mental Prison quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#34. Gullibility and credulity are considered undesireable qualities in every department of human life - except religion ... Why are we praised by godly men for surrendering our 'godly gift' of reason when we cross their mental thresholds? #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Mental Prison quotes by Christine Lynn Herman
#35. Sinners who were led astray,
Wandered through the woods one day,
Stumbled right into the Gray,
Never to return.
Hear the lies our gods will tell,
The prison the Four wove so well,
But listen to us when we say,
Branches and stones, daggers and bones,
Will meet their judgement day. #Quote by Christine Lynn Herman
Mental Prison quotes by R. Kent Hughes
#36. It is impossible for any Christian who spends the bulk of his evenings, month after month, week upon week, day in and day out watching the major TV networks or contemporary videos to have a Christian mind. This is always true of all Christians in every situation! A Biblical mental program cannot coexist with worldly programming. #Quote by R. Kent Hughes
Mental Prison quotes by Bryant McGill
#37. Guilt can interfere with our desires to move forward, to heal properly and to become a person who has the mental health and means of proper recompense. #Quote by Bryant McGill
Mental Prison quotes by Alan Lightman
#38. When the first mechanical clocks were invented, marking off time in crisp, regular intervals, it must have surprised people to discover that time flowed outside their own mental and physiological processes. Body time flows at its own variable rate, oblivious to the most precise hydrogen master clocks in the laboratory. In fact, the human body contains its own exquisite time-pieces, all with their separate rhythms. There are the alpha waves in the brain; another clock is the heart. And all the while tick the mysterious, ruthless clocks that regulate aging. #Quote by Alan Lightman
Mental Prison quotes by Jonathan Haidt
#39. Genes are selfish,3 selfish genes create people with various mental modules, and some of these mental modules make us strategically altruistic, not reliably or universally altruistic. #Quote by Jonathan Haidt
Mental Prison quotes by M.M. Van Der Reijden
#40. I thought that the world did not want me,
but the truth was that I did not want myself. #Quote by M.M. Van Der Reijden
Mental Prison quotes by Nelson Mandela
#41. I am not the only one who did not want revenge. Almost all my colleagues in prison did not want revenge, because there is no time to do anything else except to try and save your people. #Quote by Nelson Mandela
