Quote of the Day

The huge problem in our society is the enormous ignorance of the ideas that underlie modern art.
There is the intent of the writer and the interpretation by the artist. What the writer intended and what the artist interprets is not a 1-to-1 translation. It's a crossing of ideas that generates the stories that you see in print.
My goal is to spread ideas. Trends always start at the top.
My company Independent Ideas worked with Gucci on a special edition Fiat 500.
Within our culture, every school has a swimming pool. We lived on the coast. People swam in the surf. It's a very sporty nation and at that particular time anyone who had an artistic bent was very much an outsider. So if you liked reading or ideas or playing the piano then your dad viewed you as a sissy, basically.
I'd like to produce. I'd like to come up with ideas and collaborate with people and directors and writers that I like, be a part of movies that have the same idea that the movies that impacted me have. I'd like to be able to do that for people.
I've made myself laugh from some ideas - but I've never scared myself.
R. L. Stine
I'm not mainly interested in what buildings mean as symbols or vehicles for ideas.
I'm not from a milieu where high-register language or philosophical ideas were welcome.
Churchgoers in America are notorious for jumping into movements, even ideas that are hard to listen to. But when they actually have to change their lifestyle and do something about it, it rarely translates into action.
When we're in the shower, when we're thinking about our idea - boy, does it sound brilliant. But the reality is that most of our ideas are actually terrible.
Philosophical theories or ideas, as points of view, instruments of criticism, may help us to gather up what might otherwise pass unregarded by us.
Contrary to conventional wisdom, the blue blazer's a bit of a loose cannon. A suit decided long ago what it wanted to be, and it doesn't want to hear your ideas, but a blue blazer only got around to half the job. So it leaves it up to you to find its bottoms. Gray slacks, blue jeans, patterns, white pants and different blue shades all work.
I kind of like to be a sponge, in a way. So everywhere that I am, I like to keep an open mind and just get ideas from everything.
Getting to meet other artists that I admire is one of the best parts of my job. I don't know if I'd say 'star struck' as much as excited to hear other peoples' ideas.
Usually my ideas come from what I don't want to do, or what I find is old.
The emphasis and value on ideas and original thinking is an innate part of British culture, and in many ways, that describes the traditions of design.
Thinking is hard work. One can't bear burdens and ideas at the same time.
Remy de Gourmont
Active people don't change the world profoundly; ideas do. Napoleon is less important in world history than Jean-Jacques Rousseau.
Thank goodness we don't live in medieval times, when people fought wars over ideas.
I have more ideas than I know what to do with. I guess I'm a bit of a fantasist and a daydreamer - all sorts of things come to me during the day.
So long as I confine my thoughts to my own ideas divested of words, I do not see how I can be easily mistaken.
Will is nothing more than a particular case of the general doctrine of association of ideas, and therefore a perfectly mechanical thing.
My ideas are not meant to suggest dreams or reality, but a surreal quality.
Chris Van Allsburg
What's really interesting is the introduction of the tablet - not just the iPad, but the Nook and the Kindle. While they aren't going to solve all of our problems, I do think they make it easier for people to pause, linger, read and really process very important ideas.
John F. Kennedy
