Arthur N. Prior on Thinking - Dictionary of Arguments

I 16f
Thinking/Prior: must not have the form of sentences. - Even if we think in sentence form, we do not think sentences. - E.g. we fear dogs, no sentences. - Fear that p does not lead to fear a sentence which means p. - "I have my broken leg" does not mean:" I have broken what is usually called "my leg" in English". - My relation to the sentence is parasitic to the relation to the leg.
I 136
Thinking/general/Prior: one can certainly think of something general: E.g. that there are cases of infidelity.
