Ideas
Ideas... they have the power

- Hill, Napoleon
I am not yet so lost in lexicography, as to forget that words are the daughters of earth, and that things are the sons of heaven. Language is only the instrument of science, and words are but the signs of ideas: I wish, however, that the instrument might be less apt to decay, and that signs might be more permanent, like the things which they denote.

- Samuel Johnson
Very simple ideas lie within the reach only of complex minds

- Gourmont, Remy De
No one has ever had an idea in a dress suit.

- Sir Frederick G. Banting
There is no law against composing music when one has no ideas whatsoever. The music of Wagner, therefore, is perfectly legal

- The National
The West did not come to rule the world through its superiority of religion or ideas, but rather through its superior application of organized violence. Westerners often forget this fact, non-Westerners never do.

- Samuel P. Huntington
The history of ideas is the history of the grudges of solitary men.

- E.M. Cioran
The ideas that come out of most brainstorming sessions are usually superficial, trivial, and not very original.They are rarely useful.The process, however, seems to make uncreative people feel that they are making innovative contributions and that others are listening to them.

- Block, A Harvey
A linguistic system is a series of differences of sound combined with a series of differences of ideas.

- Saussure, Ferdinand De
The ideas I stand for are not mine. I borrowed them from Socrates. I swiped them from Chesterfield. I stole them from Jesus. And I put them in a book. If you don't like their rules, whose would you use?

- Carnegie, Dale
The moment a man begins to talk about technique that's proof that he is fresh out of ideas.

- Chandler, Raymond
Some have half-baked ideas because their ideals are not heated up enough.

At the center of each human heart is goodness, layered over with hurt, confusion, and mistaken ideas. Our task is to gently peel off layer after layer until the unfettered heart can shed its love upon the world.

- Sue Patton Thoele
When an idea reaches critical mass there is no stopping the shift its presence will induce.

- Williamson, Marianne
I see many people die because they judge that life is not worth living. I see others paradoxically gettin killed for the ideas or illusions that give them a reason for living (what is called a reason for living is also an excellent reason for dying). I therefore conclude that the meaning of life is the most urgent of questions.

- Albert Camus
Ideas can be life-changing. Sometimes all you need to open the door is just one more good idea.

- Rohn, Jim
The link between ideas and action is rarely direct. There is almost always an intermediate step in which the idea is overcome. De Tocqueville points out that it is at times when passions start to govern human affairs that ideas are most obviously translated into political action. The translation of ideas into action is usually in the hands of people least likely to follow rational motives. Hence, it is that action is often the nemesis of ideas, and sometimes of the men who formulate them. One of the marks of the truly vigorous society is the ability to dispense with passion as a midwife of action - the ability to pass directly from thought to action.

- Eric Hoffer
New ideas pass through three periods: - It can't be done. - It probably can be done, but it's not worth doing. - I knew it was a good idea all along!

- Arthur C. Clarke
What I call middle-class society is any society that becomes rigidified in predetermined forms, forbidding all evolution, all gains, all progress, all discovery. I call middle-class a closed society in which life has no taste, in which the air is tainted, in which ideas and men are corrupt. And I think that a man who takes a stand against this death is in a sense a revolutionary.

- Fanon, Frantz
If you are possessed by an idea, you find it expressed everywhere, you even smell it.

- Mann, Thomas
