The metaphoric mind is a maverick. It is as wild and unruly as a child. It follows us doggedly and plagues us with its presence as we wander the contrived corridors of rationality. It is a metaphoric link with the unknown called religion that causes us to build cathedrals — and the very cathedrals are built with rational, logical plans. When some personal crisis or the bewildering chaos of everyday life closes in on us, we often rush to worship the rationally-planned cathedral and ignore the religion. Albert Einstein called the intuitive or metaphoric mind a sacred gift. He added that the rational mind was a faithful servant. It is paradoxical that in the context of modern life we have begun to worship the servant and defile the divine. ~Bob Samples, The Metaphoric Mind: A Celebration of Creative Consciousness, 1976 (Thanks, Garson O'Toole! quoteinvestigator.com/2013/09/18/intuitive-mind)

Intuition, my trustworthy friend. ~Terri Guillemets

[T]he invisible intelligence that flows through everything in a purposeful fashion is also flowing through you. ~Wayne Dyer

I suspect we have internal senses. The mind's eye since Shakespeare's time has been proverbial; and we have also a mind's ear. To say nothing of dreams, one certainly can listen to one's own thoughts, and hear them, or believe that one hears them: the strongest argument adducible in favour of our hearing any thing. ~Augustus William Hare and Julius Charles Hare, Guesses at Truth, by Two Brothers, 1827

Instincts always outsmart brains. ~Terri Guillemets

Instinct is the nose of the mind. ~Madame De Girardin

I would rather trust a woman's instinct than a man's reason. ~Stanley Baldwin
