Quote of the Day

The best ideas come as jokes. Make your thinking as funny as possible.
Your best ideas, those eureka moments that turn the world upside down, seldom come when you're juggling emails, rushing to meet the 5 P.M. deadline or straining to make your voice heard in a high-stress meeting. They come when you're walking the dog, soaking in the bath or swinging in a hammock.
A fresh mind keeps the body fresh. Take in the ideas of the day, drain off those of yesterday. As to the morrow, time enough to consider it when it becomes today.
Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton
Ideas are the great warriors of the world, and a war that has no idea behind it, is simply a brutality.
James A. Garfield
People always think that history proceeds in a straight line. It doesn't. Social attitudes don't change in a straight line. There's always a backlash against progressive ideas.
Always write your ideas down however silly or trivial they might seem. Keep a notebook with you at all times.
People today are still living off the table scraps of the sixties. They are still being passed around - the music and the ideas.
A new breeze is blowing, and a world refreshed by freedom seems reborn; for in man's heart, if not in fact, the day of the dictator is over. The totalitarian era is passing, its old ideas blown away like leaves from an ancient, lifeless tree.
George H. W. Bush
The ideas I stand for are not mine. I borrowed them from Socrates. I swiped them from Chesterfield. I stole them from Jesus. And I put them in a book. If you don't like their rules, whose would you use?
I believe in nurturing creativity and offering a haven for creators, enabling them to develop their ideas to the fullest. With more and more talented creators being drawn to Cirque in an environment that fulfills them, these are ideal to continue developing great new shows.
We don't let them have ideas. Why would we let them have guns?
Respect your parents. What they tell you is true. Hard work, dedication and faith will get you anything. Imagination will drive itself. You can get anything you want, but you have to have faith behind all your ideas. Stick to your goals and have an undying faith.
What moves those of genius, what inspires their work is not new ideas, but their obsession with the idea that what has already been said is still not enough.
No grand idea was ever born in a conference, but a lot of foolish ideas have died there.
F. Scott Fitzgerald
If you want to have clean ideas, change them as often as your shirt.
Each year, every city in the world that can should have a multiday festival. More people meeting each other, digging new types of music, new foods, new ideas. You want to stop having so many wars? This could be a step in the right direction.
The image is more than an idea. It is a vortex or cluster of fused ideas and is endowed with energy.
From the political angle, I'm trying to be apolitical if you will. I mean people say, 'Are you a red state or blue state?', I say, 'I'm purple.' I think there are great ideas on both sides of the aisle and neither side has cornered the market.
It is always better to have no ideas than false ones; to believe nothing, than to believe what is wrong.
God screens us evermore from premature ideas.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The possibility of a scientific treatment of history means a wider experience, a greater maturity of practical reason, and finally a fuller realization of certain basic ideas regarding the nature of life and time.
For me, a writer should be more like a lighthouse keeper, just out there by himself. He shouldn't get his ideas from other people all around him.
Robert M. Pirsig
We live in a web of ideas, a fabric of our own making.
Joseph Chilton Pearce
You shouldn't be a prisoner of your own ideas.
Photography is more than a medium for factual communication of ideas. It is a creative art.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Martin Luther King, Jr.
