The very idea of supernatural magic - including miracles - is incoherent, devoid of sensible meaning.
I'm still in love with what I do, with the idea of making things up, so hours when I write always feel like very blessed hours to me.
We have serious enemies and growing threats around the world. Unfortunately, we have an administration whose idea of a rogue state is Arizona.
No great idea in its beginning can ever be within the law. How can it be within the law? The law is stationary. The law is fixed. The law is a chariot wheel which binds us all regardless of conditions or place or time.
How can you possibly reconcile the justice of God with the idea that only through Christ can you be saved? Most of the world lives and dies and never even hears of Christ. There has to be some mechanism set up for all those who have ever lived to have an opportunity to hear of Christ.
Death destroys a man, but the idea of death saves him.
E. M. Forster
Cure yourself of the affliction of caring how you appear to others. Concern yourself only with how you appear before God, concern yourself only with the idea that God may have of you.
Miguel de Unamuno
I think a submarine is a very worthwhile weapon. I believe we can defend ourselves with submarines and all our troops back at home. This whole idea that we have to be in 130 countries and 900 bases... is an old-fashioned idea.
Factoring in millions of people when I'm writing a song is not a good idea. I don't ever do it.
I just kind of wake up with a new idea and new dreams every day, and I follow that dream, as they say.
I grew up with a lot of Muslim friends, and the whole idea of revelation has been a lifelong interest of mine.
Every spiritual tradition has this idea of death and resurrection. It's not unique to Christianity.

Words are often seen hunting for an idea, but ideas are never seen hunting for words.
My characters tend to be more dynamic because they're reaching that point in their lives where their old way of being is breaking down. They're conflicted by the idea that they don't know what's next. You could call it Kierkegaard's leap of faith, when you get tired of sort of reinventing yourself on a very superficial level.
Any one reflecting upon the thought he has of the delight, which any present or absent thing is apt to produce in him, has the idea we call love.
Destruction is always an attractive idea. My brother and I used to spend weeks making models of cities so that we could destroy them in 15 minutes. There's a fantastic joy in destroying something that you've meticulously built. Then you're free to build a new thing. Destruction and creation... they're inseparable.
'Romance' is based on my entire creative process. I fall in love with an idea, obsess over it, isolate myself with it, and when I eventually introduce it to my friends, they all tell me that it's stupid.
I am thankful, of course, for the prize and thankful to God for each story, each idea, each word, each day.
Isaac Bashevis Singer

I can say, 'Well, I'm a male. I'm a male human. I'm a medical doctor. I'm an author...' If I go to a religious point of view, I will say, 'I am a soul. I am a spirit.' If I go into science, I will say, 'I am energy. I am light.' But the truth is I have no idea what I am.
Miguel Angel Ruiz

A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Leonardo da Vinci
