If you write a book about a bygone period that lies east of the Mississippi River, then it’s a historical novel. If it’s west of the Mississippi, it’s a western, a different category. There’s no sense to it.
Common sense is the genius of humanity.
The calling of the humanities is to make us truly human in the best sense of the word.

Be hopeful. Be optimistic. Never lose that sense of hope.
I think the most important thing about music is the sense of escape.
I really don’t act. I just live what George and I are doing. It has to make some sort of sense to me, or it won’t ring true. No matter what the script says, there’s no audience and no footlights and no camera for me. There’s no make-believe. It’s for real.
The story of civilization is, in a sense, the story of engineering – that long and arduous struggle to make the forces of nature work for man’s good.
I do not have a sense of humor of any recognizable sort.
A good compromise, a good piece of legislation, is like a good sentence; or a good piece of music. Everybody can recognize it. They say, ‘Huh. It works. It makes sense.’

Big companies have always needed and cooperated in areas where it made sense.
Forgive me my nonsense, as I also forgive the nonsense of those that think they talk sense.
A question is a pursuit, an invitation to envision and explore a series of possibilities, to struggle and empathize and doubt and believe. The question moves, whereas our sense of what an answer is can often be static, a stopping point.
One of the things that binds us as a family is a shared sense of humor.
It is the ability to take a joke, not make one, that proves you have a sense of humor.
Dogmas are collective conceptual prisons. And the strange thing is that people love their prison cells because they give them a sense of security and a false sense of ‘I know.’ Nothing has inflicted more suffering on humanity than its dogmas.
The new conservative movement has to take on Trump’s sense of boldness.
People had lost trust in governance. Getting back that trust, instilling a sense of hope and belief that good governance and development would be back on track, is my biggest achievement.

Nothing is more fairly distributed than common sense: no one thinks he needs more of it than he already has.
Sometimes when I try to make jokes or have a sense of humor in interviews, it doesn’t go over very well. But Twitter made my life easier in this way that I didn’t expect. It would have taken probably 10 times as long for people to accept my voice and my sense of humor if I didn’t have Twitter.
I have always admired women that have a strong sense of self, complemented by femininity. I especially appreciate the presence of these women in traditionally male-dominated industries, such as real estate.
Great men of action… never mind on occasion being ridiculous; in a sense it is part of their job, and at times they all are.
Our subconscious minds have no sense of humor, play no jokes and cannot tell the difference between reality and an imagined thought or image. What we continually think about eventually will manifest in our lives.
In a real sense, people who have read good literature have lived more than people who cannot or will not read. It is not true that we have only one life to live; if we can read, we can live as many more lives and as many kinds of lives as we wish.
I don’t have a caustic sense of humor. What I find funny, that humor comes from a much gentler place.
I don’t happen to have a sense of humor personally, so I don’t know what’s funny about a character… This happens to be a feature of my life generally.
Playing live is basically just hyperactivity and a certain sense of enchantment that I deliver to the audience, to let them know what it would be like to be inside my head.

Poets are the sense, philosophers the intelligence of humanity.
Our task is to find teaching methods that continually engage the whole human being. We would not succeed in this endeavor if we failed to concentrate on developing the human sense of art.
All art is political in the sense that it serves someone’s politics.
It’s interesting because I don’t ever want to ask a better question than I can answer, if that makes sense. I find that frustrating as a viewer. Compelling questions, while not easy, are easier than compelling answers.
To make sense of a world in which rapid change and globalisation create genuine insecurity, we need benchmarks by which we can judge our actions and their long-term impact.
Texas women have an amazing sense of purpose when they lose it. They’re the best girls in the world – they’re loyal and fun, but when they get mad, they’ll try to kill you.
My philosophy is: If you can’t have fun, there’s no sense in doing it.
Some facts should be suppressed, or, at least, a just sense of proportion should be observed in treating them.

Older people say, ‘Oh I loved you in ‘Sense and Sensibility,’ and that’s the only film they want to talk about. Equally, there are people who only want to talk about ‘Galaxy Quest.’ And there’s a whole bunch of teenagers who only want to talk about ‘Dogma.’
Today, more than ever before, life must be characterized by a sense of Universal responsibility, not only nation to nation and human to human, but also human to other forms of life.
Hope is definitely not the same thing as optimism. It is not the conviction that something will turn out well, but the certainty that something makes sense, regardless of how it turns out.

First figure out why you want the students to learn the subject and what you want them to know, and the method will result more or less by common sense.

Transparency and liquidity make sense in my head, so that’s why I have an affinity for blockchain as a whole.

No one believes more strongly than I do that every Christian should be a theologian. In that sense, we all need to work it out. I want all Christians who can read, to read their Bibles and to read beyond the Bible – to read the history and theology.
Dogmatism and skepticism are both, in a sense, absolute philosophies; one is certain of knowing, the other of not knowing. What philosophy should dissipate is certainty, whether of knowledge or ignorance.

The challenge of social justice is to evoke a sense of community that we need to make our nation a better place, just as we make it a safer place.
I have a fine sense of the ridiculous, but no sense of humor.
People probably think I’m cute because I have dimples and am friendly and always smiling. But beauty is different. In Chinese, people say I have chi ze, which means aura or a strong sense of presentation. It’s not about my look.
Human beings are social creatures. We are social not just in the trivial sense that we like company, and not just in the obvious sense that we each depend on others. We are social in a more elemental way: simply to exist as a normal human being requires interaction with other people.
A myth is a way of making sense in a senseless world. Myths are narrative patterns that give significance to our existence.
People always say to me, ‘You have such a clearly defined sense of style,’ and when I hear it, I get crazed, because what I hear – and I know they mean it as a compliment – is that I have such a narrow vision that I can’t get out of it.
Cancer is still a word that strikes fear into people’s hearts, producing a deep sense of powerlessness. But today it is possible to find out through a blood test whether you are highly susceptible to breast and ovarian cancer, and then take action.
When you practice gratefulness, there is a sense of respect toward others.
As a kid, I’d watch MTV and think how great it would be to have my own music videos on those shows. Now I turn on MTV and, along the bottom of the screen, it often reads, ‘Coming next… Pixie Lott.’ That’s so strange that I can’t even begin to make sense of it.
People’s behavior makes sense if you think about it in terms of their goals, needs, and motives.
As I make my slow pilgrimage through the world, a certain sense of beautiful mystery seems to gather and grow.
I found the experience of falling in love or being in love was a death: a death of everything. You kind of watch yourself die in a wonderful way, and you experience for the briefest moment – if you see yourself for a moment through their eyes – everything you believed about yourself gone. In a death-and-rebirth sense.
Whether we or our politicians know it or not, Nature is party to all our deals and decisions, and she has more votes, a longer memory, and a sterner sense of justice than we do.
The disappearance of a sense of responsibility is the most far-reaching consequence of submission to authority.
I read the ‘Old Testament‘ all the way through when I was about 13 and was horrified. A few months afterwards I read ‘The Origin Of Species‘, hallucinating very mildly because I was in bed with flu at the time. Despite that, or because of that, it all made perfect sense.
Today’s Constitution is a realistic document of freedom only because of several corrective amendments. Those amendments speak to a sense of decency and fairness that I and other Blacks cherish.
To me, we are the most beautiful creatures in the whole world. Black people. And I mean that in every sense.
It is important for people to be able to read all sides of every question; for a feeling of national unity does not come from one-sided or inadequate information, but from a sense of freedom impartially secured and of opportunity equalized by a just government.
I don’t want to get too philosophical, but in a sense, you’re given this gift, this sort of creative force in you, and I think everyone has it, and it’s completely unique to you. And you as a person have a little bit of a responsibility as its shepherd if you choose to incorporate that into your life.
Success is more a function of consistent common sense than it is of genius.
An invention has to make sense in the world it finishes in, not in the world it started.
