My idea of serenity - that wonderful word that everybody's trying to get into their life - is call-waiting.
Men of genius sometimes accomplish most when they work the least, for they are thinking out inventions and forming in their minds the perfect idea that they subsequently express with their hands.
For me, 'The Social Network' isn't about Facebook. It certainly isn't about how people use it. It's about a flawed character and his pursuit of that grand idea that defines him and validates his life and how far he'll go to get it, and the repercussions that come as a result of that - what he gives up in the process.
Revenge is a particularly interesting concept, especially the notion of whether or not it exists outside of just an abstract idea.
You live in a deranged age, more deranged that usual, because in spite of great scientific and technological advances, man has not the faintest idea of who he is or what he is doing.
Let each person do his or her part. If one citizen is unwilling to participate, all of us are going to suffer. For the American idea, though it is shared by all of us, is realized in each one of us.

If beef is your idea of 'real food for real people', you'd better live real close to a real good hospital.
I thought using the Ayatollah's money to support the Nicaraguan resistance was a neat idea.
Always carry a notebook. And I mean always. The short-term memory only retains information for three minutes; unless it is committed to paper you can lose an idea for ever.
We need a government, not politics. Because there's too much politics. Of course there should be debate. But there seems to be so much pettiness and not enough good faith. It is civilized to agree to disagree, and this idea is slowly disintegrating. The great statesmen of the past knew this, and I think it helps drive civilization.
My idea of beauty is somebody that doesn't have to try too much, someone who is effortless and fresh.

Everyone, left to his own devices, forms an idea about what goes on in language which is very far from the truth.
Ferdinand de Saussure
Affirmative action based on quotas is wrong - wrong because it is antithetical to the genius of the American idea: individual liberty.

John F. Kennedy
