I don't believe in personal immortality; the only way I expect to have some version of such a thing is through my books.
I don't believe that the public knows what it wants; this is the conclusion that I have drawn from my career.
I like to use 'I Can't Believe it's Not Butter' on my toast in the morning, because sometimes when I eat breakfast, I like to be incredulous. How was breakfast? Unbelievable.
I do not, in fact, use many puns. Certainly there are far fewer than people believe. But I suspect the ones I do occasionally use tend to hang around in people's memories for a while.
Believe in something larger than yourself... get involved in the big ideas of your time.
I believe you have to be willing to be misunderstood if you're going to innovate.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Lady Bird Johnson
Hate crimes are the scariest thing in the world because these people really believe what they're doing is right.
No human being will work hard at anything unless they believe that they are working for competence.
A great tennis career is something that a 15-year-old normally doesn't have. I hope my example helps other teens believe they can accomplish things they never thought possible.
You can have whatever you want if you believe in yourself and keep your feet firmly planted in the ground.
A. J. McLean
I like to change characters and then, slowly I believe the audience treat me as, like an actor who can fight. It's not like an action star.
I'm a con artist in that I'm an actor. I make people believe something is real when they know perfectly well it isn't.
The difference between people who believe they have books inside of them and those who actually write books is sheer cussed persistence - the ability to make yourself work at your craft, every day - the belief, even in the face of obstacles, that you've got something worth saying.
My life is storytelling. I believe in stories, in their incredible power to keep people alive, to keep the living alive, and the dead.
The capability of negotiating... is something that means you not only have to understand fully what you believe and what your national interests are but in order to be a really good negotiator, you have to try to figure out what the other person on the other side of the table has in mind.
I believe that good things come to those who work.
A line from one of my 1997 columns - 'Do one thing every day that scares you' - is now widely attributed to Eleanor Roosevelt, though I have yet to see any evidence that she ever said it and I don't believe she did. She said some things about fear, but not that thing.
I do believe there is life in outer space. Mathematically, there has to be, and if you believe as I do that there is a creator of the universe, then how can we be so arrogant to believe he created life here and nowhere else?
I believe that all centers that appear in space - whether they originate in biology, in physical forces, in pure geometry, in color - are alike simply in that they all animate space. It is this animated space that has its functional effect upon the world, that determines the way things work, that governs the presence of harmony and life.
I think copyright is moral, proper. I think a creator has the right to control the disposition of his or her works - I actually believe that the financial issue is less important than the integrity of the work, the attribution, that kind of stuff.
I still have a belief and a faith that some great things are still going to happen in my career. If I didn't believe that, it makes no sense for me to be out there, and on top of that, I know this is a period of time that God wants me to persevere through.
Honestly, when I read the Scriptures, I really believe the Lord puts a heart in us when we become believers.
I believe and support the feminist movement, but I am not generally interested in considering women's rights in relation to equality with men, or in a competition with men, but rather within their own rights and feminine space.
I think the sea has thrown itself upon me and been answered, at least in part, and I believe I am a little changed - not essentially, but changed and transubstantiated as anyone is who has asked a question and been answered.
C. S. Lewis
Leonardo da Vinci
Martin Luther King, Jr.
