Practice and thought might gradually forge many an art.


A thought is an idea in transit.


People care more about being thought to have taste than about being good, clever, or amiable.

It is not my mode of thought that has caused my misfortunes, but the mode of thought of others.

Marquis De Sade

Asparagus inspires gentle thoughts.

Charles Lamb

To think at its best is to find oneself carried down the current of necessity.

Brand Blanshard

The quality of our thoughts is bordered on all sides by our facility with language.

J. Michael Straczynski

Thought alone is eternal.

Owen Meredith

The very thought of the Diety, Is as bright, effulgent daybeams.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

There is no thought in any mind, but it quickly tends to convert itself into a power.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

...Before considering the question that is seemingly always the most immediate one and the only urgent one, What shall we do? we ponder this: How must we think? For thinking is genuine activity, genuine taking a hand, if to take a hand means to lend a hand to...the coming to presence of Being.

Martin Heidegger

The reality of man is his thought, not his material body. The thought force and the animal force are partners. Although man is part of the animal creation, he possesses a power of thought superior to all other created beings.

Abdu'l Baha

I am convinced that there are universal currents of Divine Thought vibrating the ether everywhere and that any who can feel these vibrations is inspired.

Richard Wagner

In the morning, when you are sluggish about getting up, let this thought be present: 'I am rising to a man's work.'

Marcus Aurelius

Static in my head,the reflected sound of everything,tried to go to where it led,but it didn't lead to anything.

Elliott Smith

It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.


If liberty and equality, as is thought by some are chiefly to be found in democracy, they will be best attained when all persons alike share in the government to the utmost.


The Pythagorean ... having been brought up in the study of mathematics, thought that things are numbers ... and that the whole cosmos is a scale and a number.


Some have been thought brave because they were afraid to run away.

Dr. Thomas Fuller

For a significant manwoman, the one thought he values greatly, to the laughter and scorn of insignificant men, is a key to hidden treasure chambers; for those others, it is nothing but a piece of old iron.

Friedrich Nietzsche

To be good, according to the vulgar standard of goodness, is obviously quite easy. It merely requires a certain amount of sordid terror, a certain lack of imaginative thought, and a certain low passion for middle-class respectability.

Oscar Wilde

When I was young, I thought money was the most important thing in life. Now, when I'm old, I know it is.

Oscar Wilde

The unreal is more powerful than the real, because nothing is as perfect as you can imagine it. because its only intangible ideas, concepts, beliefs, fantasies that last. stone crumbles. wood rots. people, well, they die. but things as fragile as a thought, a dream, a legend, they can go on and on.

Chuck Palahniuk

Dive into the sea of thought, and find there pearls beyond price.

Moses Ibn Ezra

The great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie -- deliberate, contrived and dishonest, but the myth, persistent, persuasive, and unrealistic. Belief in myths allows the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.

John F. Kennedy

Too often we... enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.

John F. Kennedy

People demand freedom of speech as a compensation for the freedom of thought which they seldom use.

Soren Kierkegaard

With every experience, you alone are painting your own canvas, thought by thought, choice by choice.

Oprah Winfrey

Think like a man of action, act like a man of thought.

Henri Bergson

A thought is often original, though you have uttered it a hundred times.

Oliver Wendell Holmes

Long experience has taught me this about the status of mankind with regard to matters requiring thought: the less people know and understand about them, the more positively they attempt to argue concerning them, while on the other hand to know and understand a multitude of things renders men cautious in passing judgement upon anything new.

Galileo Galilei

Be great in act, as you have been in thought.

William Shakespeare

When to the sessions of sweet silent thought I summon up remembrance of things past, I sigh the lack of many a thing I sought, And with old woes new wail my dear time's waste.

William Shakespeare

If you want to improve, be content to be thought foolish and stupid.


Always aim at complete harmony of thought and word and deed. Always aim at purifying your thoughts and everything will be well.

Mahatma Gandhi

I take as metaphysical poetry that in which what is ordinarily apprehensible only by thought is brought within the grasp of feeling, or that in which what is ordinarily only felt is transformed into thought without ceasing to be feeling.

T. S. Eliot

Conflict is the gadfly of thought. It stirs us to observation and memory. It instigates to invention. It shocks us out of sheeplike passivity, and sets us at noting and contriving.

John Dewey

We naturally associate democracy, to be sure, with freedom of action, but freedom of action without freed capacity of thought behind it is only chaos.

John Dewey

I thought I had an appetite for destruction, but all I wanted was a club sandwich.

Matt Groening

Ambition drove many men to become false; to have one thought locked in the breast, another ready on the tongue.


The true conservative is the man who has a real concern for injustices and takes thought against the day of reckoning.

Franklin D. Roosevelt

There is nothing more notable in Socrates than that he found time, when he was an old man, to learn music and dancing, and thought it time well spent.

Michel de Montaigne

I will not go so far as to say that to construct a history of thought without profound study of the mathematical ideas of successive epochs is like omitting Hamlet from the play which is named after him. . . But it is certainly analogous to cutting out the part of Ophelia. This simile is singularly exact. For Ophelia is quite essential to the play, she is very charming-- and a little mad.

Alfred North Whitehead

I thought ten thousand swords must have leaped from their scabbards to avenge even a look that threatened her with insult. But the age of chivalry is gone.

Edmund Burke

The vitality of thought is in adventure. Ideas won't keep. Something must be done about them.

Alfred North Whitehead

Culture is activity of thought, and receptiveness to beauty and humane feeling. Scraps of information have nothing to do with it. A merely well informed man is the most useless bore on God's earth.

Alfred North Whitehead

There is no bigotry like that of "free thought" run to seed.

Horace Greeley

Having been an English literary graduate, I've been trying to avoid the idea of doing art ever since. I think the idea of art kills creativity. I think media are at their most interesting before anybody's thought of calling them art, when people still think they're just a load of junk.

Douglas Adams

Even he, to whom most things that most people would think were pretty smart were pretty dumb, thought it was pretty smart.

Douglas Adams

I have always thought the actions of men the best interpreters of their thoughts.

John Locke

FDR had failed in his effort to get America behind the war effort until Pearl Harbor, although he was convinced Hitler had to be confronted. What he thought was: 'If Britain goes down, we're next,'.

Franklin D. Roosevelt

If you and I are having a single thought of violence or hatred against anyone in the world at this moment, we are contributing to the wounding of the world...

Deepak Chopra

A prince should therefore have no other aim or thought, nor take up any other thing for his study but war and it organization and discipline, for that is the only art that is necessary to one who commands.

Niccolo Machiavelli

You leave old habits behind by starting out with the thought, 'I release the need for this in my life'.

Wayne Dyer

A strict belief, fate is the worst kind of slavery; on the other hand there is comfort in the thought that God will be moved by our prayers.


Learning without thought is labor lost; thought without learning is perilous.


If a man takes no thought about what is distant, he will find sorrow near at hand.


Folks that blurt out just what they think wouldn't be so bad if they thought.

Kin Hubbard

You must not under any pretense allow your mind to dwell on any thought that is not positive, constructive, optimistic, kind.

Emmet Fox

When a thought is too weak to be expressed simply, it is a proof that it should be rejected.

Luc De Clapier De Vauvanargues

For in all legends men have thought of women as sublime separately but horrible in a herd.

G. K. Chesterton

Is it so small a thing / To have enjoyed the sun, / To have lived light in the spring, / To have loved, to have thought, to have done?

Matthew Arnold

That consciousness is everything and that all things begin with a thought. That we are responsible for our own fate, we reap what we sow, we get what we give, we pull in what we put out. I know these things for sure.


While thought exists, words are alive and literature becomes an escape, not from, but into living.

Cyril Connolly

Life is like a cash register, in that every account, every thought, every deed, like every sale, is registered and recorded.

Fulton J. Sheen

I thought she did a great job. It's too bad that we didn't hang onto the ball in that (fifth) inning. ... In order to be competitive against teams like State College, we have to play defense.

Greg Evans

Politics is perhaps the only profession for which no preparation is thought necessary.

Robert Louis Stevenson

I have never thought of writing for reputation and honor. What I have in my heart must come out; that is the reason why I compose.

Ludwig van Beethoven

He reflected deeply, until this feeling completely overwhelmed him and he reached a point where he recognized causes; for to recognize causes, it seemed to him, is to think, and through thought along feelings become knowledge and are not lost, but become real and being to mature.

Hermann Hesse

To achieve, you need thought. You have to know what you are doing and that's real power.

Ayn Rand

Some luck lies in not getting what you thought you wanted but getting what you have, which once you have got it you may be smart enough to see is what you would have wanted had you known.

Garrison Keillor

I never did give them hell. I just told the truth, and they thought it was hell.

Harry S Truman

I have always been principally interested in men for sex. I've always thought any sane woman would be a lover of women because loving men is such a mess. I have always wished I'd fall in love with a woman. Damn.

Germaine Greer

Interestingly, according to modern astronomers, space is finite. This is a very comforting thought- particularly for people who can never remember where they have left things.

Woody Allen

Thought: why does man kill? He kills for food. And not only for food: frequently there must be a beverage.

Woody Allen

Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: What! You too? I thought I was the only one.

C. S. Lewis

Men give me credit for some genius. All the genius I have is this. When I have a subject in mind. I study it profoundly. Day and night it is before me. My mind becomes pervaded with it... the effort which I have made is what people are pleased to call the fruit of genius. It is the fruit of labor and thought.

Alexander Hamilton

And he continued to stare at her, afflicted by the thought that where Beauty was, nothing ever ran quite straight, which, no doubt, was why so many people looked on it as immoral.

John Galsworthy

In the world which we know, among the different and primitive geniuses that preside over the evolution of the several species, there exists not one, excepting that of the dog, that ever gave a thought to the presence of man.

Maurice Maeterlinck

A man of action, forced into a state of thought, is unhappy until he can get out of it.

John Galsworthy

I shot in on a couple of shots and I thought I had it. I just didn't close and he just kind of flattened me and turned me.

Andrew Smith

Virginity can be lost by a thought.

Saint Jerome

A religious man is a person who holds God and man in one thought at one time, at all times, who suffers harm done to others, whose greatest passion is compassion, whose greatest strength is love and defiance of despair.

Abraham J. Heschel

Speech is external thought, and thought internal speech.

Antoine Rivarol

I just looked at my opponent and envisioned what I had to do and got it done for the team. I came into the season and trained hard, managed my weight and thought about what I was going to do this season. I was looking forward to having to wrestle him in the county. Luckily, I had the pleasure of wrestling him and I got it done. This is an incredible boost to my confidence.

Chris Weston

Resistance is thought transformed into feeling. Change the thought that creates the resistance, and there is no more resistance.

Robert Conklin

I thought I was going to be 100 years old before we beat them again. This was sweet.

John Duggan

This only comes once in a lifetime. I think, basically, in two years I did probably what all I could do at USC. ... I just followed my heart and thought it was best.

Ko Simpson

We thought our offense would play a lot better. We thought we would score more points.

Jay Cutler

Thought is the fountain of speech.


Pure love is a willingness to give without a thought of receiving anything in return.

Peace Pilgrim

I just never thought about going anywhere else. My sister (Elise) went here and all my friends were going here.

Jillian Ware

I thought my whole ankle was shattered. If that ball was an inch higher, I think I'd be out three to six months.

Jon Papelbon

I thought we played a great game tonight. I thought we outplayed them. Trumbull has a good team. We jumped up on them, they broke back with four straight goals, we outplayed them in the third period and overtime, but they got a lucky bounce. That's what can happen in overtime.

Doug Robinson

I'm mad at Hank Aaron for deciding to play one more season. I threw him his last home run and thought I'd be remembered forever. Now, I'll have to throw him another.

Bill Lee

We thought it was just one chance. So I guess we'll have to see what the judge says.

Kathy Shota

I thought maybe I'd get a couple more, ... but not like this. Everyone said they are addicting. I just like having artwork on my body.

John Erskine

When I examine myself and my methods of thought, I come to the conclusion that the gift of fantasy has meant more to me than any talent for abstract, positive thinking.

Albert Einstein

David thought people would be disgusted by him, ... but he was stopped on the streets of New York by people who said 'You have such courage for trying to stop this practice.' The positive feedback made him feel so good. He just blossomed because of this.

John Colapinto of the strongest motives that lead men to art and science is escape from everyday life with its painful crudity and hopeless dreariness, from the fetters of one's own ever-shifting desires. A finely tempered nature longs to escape from the personal life into the world of objective perception and thought.

Albert Einstein

Great spirits have always found violent opposition from mediocrities. The latter cannot understand it when a man does not thoughtlessly submit to hereditary prejudices, but honestly and courageously uses his intelligence and fulfills the duty to express the results of his thought in clear form.

Albert Einstein

My perception is that we're making considerable progress. But not as much progress as we thought that we would make.

Charles E. Grassley

I tried to put him under pressure in the closing games because I thought the pressure of trying to win could affect his first serve.

David Ferrer

At that point I thought we were down, but not out. Our shots weren't falling and we never got into a rhythm.

Lisa Zak

I believe in the theater; I believe in it as the first glamorizer of thought. It restores dramatic dynamics and their relations to life size.

Laurence Olivier, Sir

I thought Chris Buck had an outstanding game. What a way for these seniors to go out against St. Mary?s.

Brian Morse

Defense wins games, and our kids came out with great intensity and we did everything we were supposed to do. I really thought that with the young team we played against, we really put a beating on them early.

Jack Rentko

Early in the morning before school started he would have high school seniors come in to the trading floor and play cards with him, ... poker, bridge -- any sort of game where there's a strategy involved, the way that was remembering the cards, where he could watch people's minds and see how they thought and see how analytical they were. And those who were good players got hired as traders.

Lisa Endlich

After a lot of thought, a lot of anguish, we've decided I will not be a candidate for governor, ... I've done this three times now. I should be pretty good at this.

Jim Edgar

We don't have any idea how this could have happened. We referred him to people, and we even set up some appointments. We thought we were doing a favor for our folks.

Richard Fowler

I refuse to go into a fast-food outlet - to use the toilet even - in case anyone got the wrong idea and thought I was sneaking in a quick burger.

Jonny Wilkinson

Everybody thought they were going to have a smoking gun. It just wasn't enough for me.

Nick Qayyum

People are reassessing the U.S. economic outlook because they had thought the recovery was jobless. People are beginning to price in the chance of a rate hike by August.

Niels Christensen

I didn't think anybody was going to be up during the ride. I thought we were all going to make noise and fall asleep. But we started reminiscing about how the whole year's been, how we came to every practice and almost fought each other, and how we brought it all together. To finally win it was remarkable.

Ricky Soliver

We got off to a really slow start offensively. But I thought our defense made up for that and played really well and didn't give them any easy shots.

Lelani Gordon

They're both very capable guys. They're both very different. Ultimately, what it came down to, in my opinion, was what I thought was a better fit for our program.

Morgan Burke

I was a little more encouraged with Charlie today. Today was kind of a test day. We thought it would be anywhere from play him to scope him on Thursday, but he has responded a lot better than we possibly thought he would when the injury happened.

Carroll Mccray

We jumped into the protest of Vietnam before the Black Panther Party ever started, before the Black Panther Party was even thought of. In fact, it was late 1965 and 1966 that the anti-Vietnam War, anti-draft to the Vietnam War protest started at University of California, Berkeley.

Bobby Seale

I am truly horrified by modern man. Such absence of feeling, such narrowness of outlook, such lack of passion and information, such feebleness of thought.

Alexander Herzen

I thought we did a lot of things well. But there's always something you can improve on. For us, just little things. Technical things, trying to finish every play, getting on the right guy and staying on him, there's always little things, reading the coverage.

Max Starks

If she had something she thought someone else would like, it was theirs.

Larry Weiman

Books are the carriers of civilization. Without books, history is silent, literature dumb, science crippled, thought and speculation at a standstill. I think that there is nothing, not even crime, more opposed to poetry, to philosophy, ay, to life itself than this incessant business.

Henry David Thoreau

We beat a rival in what I thought was a classic game. But we can't settle. The season's only half over, and there's a long road ahead.

Bobby Byerly

To believe your own thought: To believe that what is true for you in your private heart is true for all men, that is genius.

Henry David Thoreau

If they were getting good feedback from the state, I thought they would continue down that path.

Linda Huber

The only real talent Miss Day possesses is that of being absolutely sanitary: her personality untouched by human emotions, her brow unclouded by human thought, her form unsmudged by the slightest form of femininity.

Sir John Simon

We selected a course of action that we thought was appropriate and enforceable.

Glenn Geffner

I had a gut instinct, ... We thought we were clearly doing the right thing, and it was time and we needed a new generation of leaders.

George Little

Historically, the ease of access of records and court approval came in business cases. But that body of law has been transplanted with little thought to personal, medical and financial records.

Christopher Slobogin

Must be out-of-doors enough to get experience of wholesome reality, as a ballast to thought and sentiment. Health requires this relaxation, this aimless life.

Henry David Thoreau

On my way into work, I had this chest pain and I kept coughing, ... I felt kind of pale and clammy and it just wouldn't stop. I didn't lose consciousness, and I didn't have any enormous pain. [It was] just this feeling that something was going on and I thought it would just pass.

Peter Boyle

Defensively I thought we played pretty well. We're going to need to play much better as the schedule reaches the mid-February point, and hopefully our team understands that.

Aaron Johnston

I've often thought the Bible should have a disclaimer in the front saying this is fiction.

Ian McKellen

In art there are tears that lie too deep for thought.

Louis Kronenberger

I thought this would be the year (that he would be healthy). But I fought through it anyway.

Kellon Balum

We've found that the growth of actin is dependent on its loading history -- not just on the load it feels at one moment, as we previously thought. This means the structure of a cell has some 'memory' of its physical interactions.

Daniel Fletcher

I don't think I am any good. If I thought I was any good, I wouldn't be.

John Betjeman

The [KT] layer is thought to be the fallout from the fireball.

Lawrence Grossman

It happened much more quickly than we thought it would.

Leslie Brown

We don't have anything new planned. We're just going to come out strong and improve on what we did last night. I thought we had a bad third quarter.

Cody Jones

We held them without a shot in the championship game, but couldn't seem to get the ball in the cage. I was pleased with how hard we played. I thought in both games we had a lot of intensity.

Kent Houser

I thought we played like we were capable of playing. We were upset with how the game went (Friday). It's a 48-minute game and we only played 24.

Scott Padgett

We looked at what this movie was about, what the themes in the movie were, at the audience we were targeting and at the available digital devices. We wanted to carry those concepts through our digital marketing campaign, so we thought of a BlackBerry game -- and then we looked at how to make it happen.

Dwight Caines

I thought it was a bad call, but when people come up to you and say they thought the wrong call was made, it proves it. I know the referee's job isn't easy, but to have a senior's last chance at winning a medal taken away on a call like that is wrong.

Al Sears

I've always thought respectable people scoundrels, and I look anxiously at my face every morning for signs of my becoming a scoundrel.

Bertrand Russell

She spoke my name for the first time in a year. She ... sort of came out of the darkness for a few minutes. That's when I really thought there's something to this for the aged (and) infirm.

Mickey Hart

All along, we've been ... I guess you could call it a work in progress. I thought last week was big in terms of us making strides in our progress. Tonight is important to us, for one thing because it's against Grove City, and for another because it's Senior Night, and we'd like to send these two seniors off the right way.

Gary Kellough

Fort Dodge gave us some chances with fumbles. It was back and forth, but it comes back to making plays. On that fourth and inches, we thought about taking it outside, then the play clock ran down on us and we didn't get it.

Brian Woodley

Antoine said he had a boat and a generator if he needed it. He told me he wasn't going to leave New Orleans and that I should wait and pray for him. I hung up the phone and started to cry. I honestly never thought I'd talk to him again.

Al Embry

Our kids were incredible tonight. I never thought we'd beat a great Tremont like that after losing to them by 24 points.

Matt Winkler

[It was before Vatican II and the liberalization of church doctrine.] You weren't meant to eat meat on Friday in deference to Christ, who died on Friday. If you did, you went to hell, ... That way, Hitler would be in hell alongside someone who ate meat on Friday. I thought there was no justice there.

Christopher Durang

Our guys worked extremely hard, we thought well enough to win the game. We just made mental mistakes sometimes. Our effort was 100 percent and our mental game was probably 90 percent, but that's okay. Most teams will play 70 to 80 percent of both those.

Larry Usher

I'm pretty much a realist, but we are going to give it our best. I never thought I'd be here. We're going to have a blast.

Frank Kimmel

He is well liked and well thought of too, in the Coast Guard.

Bill Allen

I thought the first quarter for us was nearly flawless. Our team did an excellent job playing without Erin (Parker), and our bench played extremely well.

Gina Mitchell

Ironically, what he thought was a mission to bring life into this world cost him his own life.

Jeff Paulsen

Maybe people thought of us as a running team. Or a three-point shooting team. A no-contact team. We've changed that image.

Al Horford

When I speak of the gifted listener, I am thinking of the nonmusician primarily, of the listener who intends to retain his amateur status. It is the thought of just such a listener that excites the composer in me.

Aaron Copland

We like to force the action ... and I thought we played our game.

Shane Robinson

It's a simple story, yet with all the complexities of myth. The technology was so understated. I thought he (George Lucas) was an amazing director who had created this totally believable world.

Liam Neeson

I thought getting off to a good start was important. I felt our defense was pretty good and we limited them to one shot.

Gregg Ford

I got involved in this because being raised in a certain kind of family gets you involved in political action early. I thought it was normal to have parents talk about social issues and politics and economics for two hours at the dinner table.

Corey Woods

There has been a major realization that gas supplies in North America are less available than many thought just five years ago. Drill-rig counts have gone up, but gas production barely keeps pace.

Mark Hayes

We're not force-feeding anything into our lineup, ... Everyone's worried because we haven't signed any free agents but we thought we were adding some things from within our organization that actually are going to make us better.

Doug Wilson

I thought I had some good speed going in the top section and then I shut it down pretty hard and put myself out of the top 30. But at least I'll know what I finished right away. I'll either be happy or sad when I come across the finish line tomorrow because all the top guys are (starting) in front of me.

Daron Rahlves

Silverado was the only team that really spanked us, ... I thought we should have beaten Hurricane.

Jill Harris

I had a chance to make the catch, but when I threw it I thought it was going to hit Lopez. But Adam made a nice catch.

Robb Quinlan

Nothing requires a greater effort of thought than arguments to justify the rule of non-thought.

Milan Kundera

You could say China is actually 20 percent richer than anybody initially thought.

Qu Hongbin

We thought we could get it out before May 1, but because the values for some of the neighborhoods were out of whack, we had to go back and fine-tune those.

Robert Gerhardt

It was a really fast paced game against the best team in the conference. I thought we played with them for the most part.

Joe Carlson

I thought that we did pretty well considering we didn't have many people participating because of the vacation and the Spanish trip. That's the problem with a small school. So I didn't really expect much. Under the circumstances I thought we performed well. We're looking forward to the [home] meet this Thursday with Hampton Bays.

Rod Cawley

I went to a doctor and had it diagnosed but then thought, I can't do it. I'd have to be off two weeks because this was the surgical way.

Cecilia Farley

I really thought this was going to be it. We thought we weren't going to school (today).

Will Whittington

She's trained on both turf and dirt. She trained on dirt before she ever ran in her maiden race. I wish I could say for sure that she'll take to it but we'll just have to see and thought this was a good opportunity.

Paddy Gallagher

We did what we needed to do. Zumwalt West really came at us, especially in that first half. Our girls really felt pressured for the first time this season, and I thought we responded fairly well.... I thought we worked hard and got a win against a good opponent.

Kristy Bush

It's becoming a broader story than first thought.

Greg Canavan

I don't know what happened. I can't even begin to explain it. I wasn't pressing. I thought I was relaxed, but it kept popping out of my hands. I've never had a game like that.

Chad Owens

We started slow tonight. We just couldn't put every aspect of the game together in the first game. The second game we were really fighting. I thought we played more our style. It could have gone either way.

Maggie Erlenbaugh

The impressive thing ... was that he was pretty poised. At times, it gets a little hectic in there and he starts making audible checks and he gets hit and you start going in the wrong direction — in domes in particular, where it's real noisy. I thought he really handled it beautifully.

Mike Holmgren

I've shot a billion of them. I figured I had to make one. I never thought of it (shooting the winning shot). Then, it happened.

Melissa West

Those are her first two college games, so she did very well. I know she was very nervous (Friday) -- she probably felt a little better today -- and I thought she did a good job all-in-all for the weekend.

Kevin Houle

We believe in producing works that deal with real issues, and deal with those issues in a realistic way. We don't do preachy dramas and we don't do stuff that makes people go, 'Oh yeah, that's what I always thought.' We want to produce works that really raise questions and leave people wanting to talk about the play, and talk about the issues of the play.

Jeanette Harrison

I was walking along and this chair came flying past me, and another, and another, and I thought, man, is this gonna be a good night.

Liam Gallagher

Big companies know that not all ideas come from one pool or one source of people, so they're always looking for outsiders to come up with opportunities they may not have thought of. It's a fresh source of inspiration.

Reyne Rice

I think it just shows the strength and popularity of the Derby at this point. A few weeks ago our list of horses we thought were possible or probable seemed to be shrinking a bit. But when we got the last round of major preps, the list started growing again -- even though two horses (Brother Derek and Lawyer Ron) you'd regard as the favorites scored emphatic victories.

John Asher

They never thought they'd get a fair shake from this department. The guys fully expected what happened to happen.

Frank Desalvo

I thought the offense had a bunch of different guys who made plays. It's kind of fun for players to be in that kind of decision-making position that we don't put them in during the season.

Randy Tribble

At first I thought it was baseball, but then I thought that's baloney. Then I tried football, but I wasn't big enough, so I thought I'd give wrestling a shot.

James Nicholson

A great deal of careful, painstaking thought has gone into making this decision. The Pavilion has been one of the central landmarks of Myrtle Beach tourism for more than 50 years, and no one has a stronger or deeper emotional attachment than the people at Burroughs & Chapin.

Doug Wendel

Culture is the sum of all the forms of art, of love, and of thought, which, in the coarse or centuries, have enabled man to be less enslaved.

Andre Malraux

I'm disappointed. With as much information as the media has provided, I would have thought there would be some movement one way or another.

Charlie Deaton

We thought this was a winnable race but, as much as we love politics, there are more important things in life, especially concerns of family.

Jerry Lundergan

We talked about how am I going to get across to these kids what I know in terms they'll understand. But for the most part, I'm getting on the mound or stopping them in the bullpen and showing them. For the most part it's been a lot easier to get through to these guys than I thought it would be. I'm enjoying it.

Jeromy Palki

Yet ah! why should they know their fate, Since sorrow never comes too late, And happiness too swiftly flies? Thought would destroy their paradise. No more; where ignorance is bliss, 'Tis folly to be wise.

Thomas Gray

I thought it went in. Toronto called and said, 'The whole thing didn't go over.' There's nothing I can do about it.

Mike Grier
