No grand idea was ever born in a conference, but a lot of foolish ideas have died there.
F. Scott Fitzgerald quotes
The world moves, and ideas that were once good are not always good.
Dwight David Eisenhower quotes
Reverie is when ideas float in our mind without reflection or regard of the understanding.
John Locke quotes
Don't you drink? I notice you speak slightingly of the bottle. I have drunk since I was fifteen and few things have given me more pleasure. When you work hard all day with your head and know you must work again the next day what else can change your ideas and make them run on a different plane like whisky? When you are cold and wet what else can warm you? Before an attack who can say anything that gives you the momentary well-being that rum does? The only time it isn't good for you is when you write or when you fight. You have to do that cold. But it always helps my shooting. Modern life, too, is often a mechanical oppression and liquor is the only mechanical relief.
Ernest Hemingway quotes
Lack of money is no obstacle. Lack of an idea is an obstacle.
Math is like love -- a simple idea but it can get complicated.
The fundamental idea of modern capitalism is not the right of the individual to possess and enjoy what he has earned, but the thesis that the exercise of this right redounds to the general good.
The best way to have a good idea is to have a lot of ideas.
The idea is to write it so that people hear it and it slides through the brain and goes straight to the heart.
A new idea is delicate. It can be killed by a sneer or a yawn; it can be stabbed to death by a joke or worried to death by a frown on the right person's brow.
