To me, ideology is corrupt; it’s a parasite on religious structures. To be an ideologue is to have all of the terrible things that are associated with religious certainty and none of the utility.

I think a simple rule of business is, if you do the things that are easier first, then you can actually make a lot of progress.
134

135
When you think about it, department stores are kind of like museums.
136

138
My message, especially to young people is to have courage to think differently, courage to invent, to travel the unexplored path, courage to discover the impossible and to conquer the problems and succeed.

I think of myself as a young prince from a long line of royalty.

I hate organized religion. I think you have to love thy neighbor as thyself. I think you have to pick your own God and be true to him. I always say ‘him’ rather than ‘her.’ Maybe it’s because of my generation, but I don’t like the idea of a female God. I see God as a benevolent male.
149
I think everybody’s nuts.
150
As you enter positions of trust and power, dream a little before you think.

152
You have to come to your closed doors before you get to your open doors… What if you knew you had to go through 32 closed doors before you got to your open door? Well, then you’d come to closed door number eight and you’d think, ‘Great, I got another one out of the way’… Keep moving forward.
153

158
What do I think of Western civilization? I think it would be a very good idea.
159

Stacey Farber
161

Working 24 hours a day isn’t enough anymore. You have to be willing to sacrifice everything to be successful, including your personal life, your family life, maybe more. If people think it’s any less, they’re wrong, and they will fail.
165

169
I care not what others think of what I do, but I care very much about what I think of what I do! That is character!
170
Really, every day is the perfect day to boss up. Every day that you wake up is a perfect day to boss up. It’s all about continuing to put one foot in front of the next. That’s what it’s about. Whatever you think you’re going through, just put one foot in front of the next.
171
If you’re climbing the ladder of life, you go rung by rung, one step at a time. Don’t look too far up, set your goals high but take one step at a time. Sometimes you don’t think you’re progressing until you step back and see how high you’ve really gone.

178
I think it’s important for little girls growing up, and young women, to have one in every walk of life. So from that point of view, I’m proud to be a role model!

Doing voiceovers is so great because even though many people would think it’s just your voice, you really do use all your physicality. I’ve done everything from playing a butterfly to Alice in Wonderland when she’s 10 feet tall, so it allows you to be an actor and build new characters.
Ashley Bell
182

Never express yourself more clearly than you are able to think.
Niels Bohr
188

People should debate. They shouldn’t be afraid to talk. You should listen to what other people think and how they make decisions. There should be an exchange of ideas and opinions because that’s how we learn.
195
I think we have a duty to maintain the light of consciousness to make sure it continues into the future.
196
Design is a funny word. Some people think design means how it looks. But of course, if you dig deeper, it’s really how it works.
197
Revenge only engenders violence, not clarity and true peace. I think liberation must come from within.
198
I don’t believe in guilt; I believe in living on impulse as long as you never intentionally hurt another person. And don’t judge people in your life. I think you should live completely free.
199
I think we all have different personalities… and even in relationships, we can be called psycho, and we can be called sweet, based on what the person feels about you.
200
We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.
201
Every time I start to get worked up over something, I just think to myself, ‘Is this really going to matter in my life tomorrow, in an hour, in a year?’ You just can’t get stressed about the little things ’cause it’s just not worth it at the end of the day.
202
What other people think of you is none of your business.
203
I think in art, but especially in films, people are trying to confirm their own existences.
204
Learning and innovation go hand in hand. The arrogance of success is to think that what you did yesterday will be sufficient for tomorrow.
William Pollard
205
Teens think listening to music helps them concentrate. It doesn’t. It relieves them of the boredom that concentration on homework induces.
206
I think beta males on an evolutionary basis are much more successful than the alpha males are. You don’t hear much about us, but there’s a lot more of us out there.
207
I think we need to look at ourselves first. We should practice what we’re preaching. Otherwise, we are hypocrites.
208
I think childhood is, generally speaking, a preparation for disappointment.
209
Your success depends mainly upon what you think of yourself and whether you believe in yourself.
William J. H. Boetcker
210
I mean, I do think at a certain point you’ve made enough money.
211
When anger rises, think of the consequences.
212
I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see.
213
The more I think about it, the more I realize there is nothing more artistic than to love others.
214
People can try to reinvent themselves. I don’t think you can really change who you are, though, because who you are is pretty much where you came from and what you’ve done up to now.
215
I think it would be interesting if old people got anti-Alzheimer‘s disease where they slowly began to recover other people’s lost memories.
216
You’ve got to think lucky. If you fall into a mudhole, check your back pocket – you might have caught a fish.
217
If you must have motivation, think of your paycheck on Friday.
Noel Coward
218
But I always think that the best way to know God is to love many things.
219
I think people who are creative are the luckiest people on earth. I know that there are no shortcuts, but you must keep your faith in something Greater than You, and keep doing what you love. Do what you love, and you will find the way to get it out to the world.
220
You know when you’re young you think you will always be. As you become more fragile, you reflect and you realize how much comfort can come from the past. Hymns can carry you into the future.
Andy Griffith
221
The ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world are the ones who do.
222
Few people think more than two or three times a year; I have made an international reputation for myself by thinking once or twice a week.
223
I think it’s better to feel good than to look good.
224
I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I intended to be.
225
I think a role model is a mentor – someone you see on a daily basis, and you learn from them.
226
I’m not different for the sake of being different, only for the desperate sake of being myself. I can’t join your gang: you’d think I was a phony and I’d know it.
Vivian Stanshall
227
What we think, we become.
228
I think we all need to be able to dream in all colors.
229
Sometimes we fall, sometimes we stumble, but we can’t stay down. We can’t allow life to beat us down. Everything happens for a reason, and it builds character in us, and it tells us what we are about and how strong we really are when we didn’t think we could be that strong.
230
Great moments of entertainment, great football, unforgettable evenings. I think that’s what it’s all about: experience, emotions, and the special touch that the Champions League brings on and off the field.
231
Some people think that doctors and nurses can put scrambled eggs back in the shell.
Cass Canfield
232
Who would ever think that so much went on in the soul of a young girl?
233
Anyone who has ever looked into the glazed eyes of a soldier dying on the battlefield will think hard before starting a war.
Otto von Bismarck
234
Think you of the fact that a deaf person cannot hear. Then, what deafness may we not all possess? What senses do we lack that we cannot see and cannot hear another world all around us?
235
I think the currency of leadership is transparency. You’ve got to be truthful. I don’t think you should be vulnerable every day, but there are moments where you’ve got to share your soul and conscience with people and show them who you are, and not be afraid of it.
236
The most obvious things are often right there, but you don’t think about them because you’ve narrowed your vision.
Steven Levitt
237
I’m excited about what the future will bring and I think the best is yet to come.
238
Your ups and downs in sports, I think they are as normal as daily life: One day you wake up and feel great, the next day you wake up and feel maybe less great.
239
It’s very dangerous to wave to people you don’t know because what if they don’t have hands? They’ll think you’re cocky.
240
Here’s something that’s contrary to popular belief: I actually don’t like thinking. I think people think I like to think a lot. And I don’t. I do not like to think at all.
241
I don’t have regrets, life is too short. You have to think about the positives and move forward.
242
Whenever I think of the past, it brings back so many memories.
243
Somebody’s boring me. I think it’s me.
Dylan Thomas
244
When I look back at that freedom of childhood, which is in a way infinite, and at all the joy and the intense happiness, now lost, I sometimes think that childhood is where the real meaning of life is located, and that we, adults, are its servants – that that’s our purpose.
245
With each film, you are still trying to get the length and measure right. And failure is all about others’ perception of you. When you have one success, they think you know it all. But if you fail, they think they know it all.
246
You think dogs will not be in heaven? I tell you, they will be there long before any of us.
247
We think of our future as anticipated memories.
248
I think that the greatest gift God ever gave man is not the gift of sight but the gift of vision. Sight is a function of the eyes, but vision is a function of the heart.
249
If I wasn’t Bob Dylan, I’d probably think that Bob Dylan has a lot of answers myself.
250
We think, each of us, that we’re much more rational than we are. And we think that we make our decisions because we have good reasons to make them. Even when it’s the other way around. We believe in the reasons, because we’ve already made the decision.
251
Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life – think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success.
252
Humans think in stories, and we try to make sense of the world by telling stories.
253
If you realized how powerful your thoughts are, you would never think a negative thought.
254
I think women are foolish to pretend they are equal to men; they are far superior and always have been.
255
Everyone talks about building a relationship with your customer. I think you build one with your employees first.
256
I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don’t notice it.
257
I’m Italian, but some people think I’m Jewish because I work the Yiddish. I also work the Italian, by the way.
Joy Behar
258
I think that gay marriage should be between a man and a woman.
259
I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can’t trust em.
260
There are quite a lot of YouTube clips of me that have gone viral. One that I think of is of a young woman at a lecture I was giving – she came from Liberty University, which is a ludicrous religious institution. She said, ‘What if you are wrong?’ and I answered that rather briefly, and that’s gone viral.
261
Dream on it. Let your mind take you to places you would like to go, and then think about it and plan it and celebrate the possibilities. And don’t listen to anyone who doesn’t know how to dream.
262
I don’t trust politicians. I think that by the time they’ve made it, with the concessions they’ve had to make in that position, I don’t believe they still have the beliefs they had at the root.
263
I don’t think a prostitute is more moral than a wife, but they are doing the same thing.
Prince Philip
264
I think that ideas exist outside of ourselves. I think somewhere, we’re all connected off in some very abstract land. But somewhere between there and here ideas exist.
265
I sometimes think that God in creating man somewhat overestimated his ability.
266
Any fact facing us is not as important as our attitude toward it, for that determines our success or failure. The way you think about a fact may defeat you before you ever do anything about it. You are overcome by the fact because you think you are.
267
Information technology and business are becoming inextricably interwoven. I don’t think anybody can talk meaningfully about one without the talking about the other.
268
If a man had more than one life, I think a little hanging would not hurt this one; but after he is once dead, we cannot bring him back, no matter how sorry we may be; so the boy shall be pardoned.
269
I am among those who think that science has great beauty.
270
I think there’s something charming about incorporating summer clothes into winter, like pairing a summery skirt with a massive sweater. I’m also really into layering during the winter!
271
It ain’t as bad as you think. It will look better in the morning.
272
The greatest error of a man is to think that he is weak by nature, evil by nature. Every man is divine and strong in his real nature. What are weak and evil are his habits, his desires and thoughts, but not himself.
273
I think we need more idiot control.
274
I think clever people think that poor people are stupid.
275
I think being stylish is about being you.
276
The real danger is not that computers will begin to think like men, but that men will begin to think like computers.
277
I read, I study, I examine, I listen, I think, and out of all that I try to form an idea into which I put as much common sense as I can.
278
I think all of us have a hero and a villain in us.
Anson Mount
279
You can’t call it an adventure unless it’s tinged with danger. The greatest danger in life, though, is not taking the adventure at all. To have the objective of a life of ease is death. I think we’ve all got to go after our own Everest.
280
They say people live to be happy. If you actually think about what happiness is, it’s nothing much. When you get to eat ramen after feeling really, really hungry, that’s happiness.
281
Religion is dangerous because it allows human beings who don’t have all the answers to think that they do.
282
I think self-discovery is the greatest achievement in life, because once you discover yourself and accept what you are, then you can fulfil your true potential and be happy.
283
Some people say I have attitude – maybe I do… but I think you have to. You have to believe in yourself when no one else does – that makes you a winner right there.
284
I always tell young people to hold on to their dreams. And sometimes you have to stand up for what you think is right even if you have to stand alone.
285
Love does not begin and end the way we seem to think it does. Love is a battle, love is a war; love is a growing up.
286
If you think nobody cares if you’re alive, try missing a couple of car payments.
Earl Wilson
287
I think the universe is pure geometrybasically, a beautiful shape twisting around and dancing over space-time.
Antony Garrett Lisi
288
When I’m lying in my bed I think about life and I think about death and neither one particularly appeals to me.
289
Just don’t give up trying to do what you really want to do. Where there is love and inspiration, I don’t think you can go wrong.
Ella Fitzgerald
290
Stand up to your obstacles and do something about them. You will find that they haven’t half the strength you think they have.
291
The dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate to the stormy present. The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we must rise with the occasion. As our case is new, so we must think anew and act anew.
292
Don’t worry what people say or what people think. Be yourself.
293
I think life on Earth must be about more than just solving problems… It’s got to be something inspiring, even if it is vicarious.
294
The living room is where we come to think, to slow down the world for a second.
295
I don’t set out to win awards. I don’t think any musician does, but when you receive an award, it’s an affirmation: it means that people appreciate what you do. Every award I have received is a confirmation of something I have done, and that motivates me to push a little harder.
296
I think there ought to be some serious discussion by smart people, really smart people, about whether or not proliferation of things like The Smoking Gun and TMZ and YouTube and the whole celebrity culture is healthy.
297
I think people should be allowed to do anything they want. We haven’t tried that for a while. Maybe this time it’ll work.
298
And so while the great ones depart to their dinner, the secretary stays, growing thinner and thinner, racking his brain to record and report what he thinks that they think that they ought to have thought.
Arthur Bryant
299
You think your life is going one way and then suddenly, you’re on another track.
300
I often think that the night is more alive and more richly colored than the day.
301
I think scars are like battle wounds – beautiful, in a way. They show what you’ve been through and how strong you are for coming out of it.
302
It may be true that the law cannot make a man love me, but it can keep him from lynching me, and I think that’s pretty important.
303
People do think I’m Jewish. But we’re Irish Catholic. My father had a brogue.
304
We are drowning in information, while starving for wisdom. The world henceforth will be run by synthesizers, people able to put together the right information at the right time, think critically about it, and make important choices wisely.
305
In my life I’ve learned that true happiness comes from giving. Helping others along the way makes you evaluate who you are. I think that love is what we’re all searching for. I haven’t come across anyone who didn’t become a better person through love.
Marla Gibbs
306
Sometimes I think it would be easier to avoid old age, to die young, but then you’d never complete your life, would you? You’d never wholly know you.
307
Going to a restaurant is one of my keenest pleasures. Meeting someplace with old and new friends, ordering wine, eating food, surrounded by strangers, I think is the core of what it means to live a civilised life.
Adam Gopnik
308
The older you get, the more fragile you understand life to be. I think that’s good motivation for getting out of bed joyfully each day.
309
I love natural beauty, and I think it’s your best look, but I think makeup as an artist is so transformative.
310
You’ve got to think about big things while you’re doing small things, so that all the small things go in the right direction.
311
Sports are such a great teacher. I think of everything they’ve taught me: camaraderie, humility, how to resolve differences.
312
It’s so easy to be insecure about your looks or if you’re wearing the right clothes, or your hair and makeup. And I think it’s just so important to stay true to who you are.
313
I don’t see any of my colleagues as rivals. I don’t think our generation needs to do that. We are a chilled out lot, and we should all be happy.
314
One might think that the money value of an invention constitutes its reward to the man who loves his work. But… I continue to find my greatest pleasure, and so my reward, in the work that precedes what the world calls success.
315
I do not try to play a role. I feel good being myself and saying what I think.
316
I don’t think I am a workaholic. I prefer to keep busy. It is better than the alternative.
317
Character is doing the right thing when nobody’s looking. There are too many people who think that the only thing that’s right is to get by, and the only thing that’s wrong is to get caught.
318
Sex appeal is fifty percent what you’ve got and fifty percent what people think you’ve got.
319
I’ve cried, and you’d think I’d be better for it, but the sadness just sleeps, and it stays in my spine the rest of my life.
320
Sometimes I think we’re alone in the universe, and sometimes I think we’re not. In either case the idea is quite staggering.
321
I think my biggest appeal for fans is probably the fact that I’m honest. I’m up front about who I am. I’m a little naughty. I have a naughty side and everybody knows that. But I know when to use that and when not to.
322
You’re betraying your whole life if you don’t say what you think – and you don’t say it honestly and bluntly.
323
If you want to conquer fear, don’t sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.
324
It is not from your own goods that you give to the beggar; it is a portion of his own that you are restoring to him. The Earth belongs to all. So you are paying back a debt and think you are making a gift to which you are not bound.
325
I think I can always look back and say my mom and dad would have done this or suggested that in a particular situation. I just really feel blessed to have had them as parents.
326
Don’t marry the person you think you can live with; marry only the individual you think you can’t live without.
327
No. I am not a royalist. Not at all. I am definitely a republican in the British sense of the word. I just don’t see the use of the monarchy though I’m fierce patriot. I’m proud proud proud of being English, but I think the monarchy symbolizes a lot of what was wrong with the country.
328
I wonder if other dogs think poodles are members of a weird religious cult.
329
I think of a hero as someone who understands the degree of responsibility that comes with his freedom.
330
There’s a time in your life where you’re not quite sure where you are. You think everything’s perfect, but it’s not perfect… Then one day you wake up and you can’t quite picture yourself in the situation you’re in. But the secret is, if you can picture yourself doing anything in life, you can do it.
331
Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don’t wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it’s at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored.
332
I think that the future of currency is digital, and Bitcoin has a good shot at being the currency of the future.
333
I still think I am the greatest.
334
Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.
335
If God made anything better than women, I think he kept it for himself.
336
I think fish is nice, but then I think that rain is wet, so who am I to judge?
337
He comes in on the beat and plays on top of the beat. I think when Prince makes love, he hears drums instead of Ravel.
Miles Davis
338
I do not try to play a role. I feel good being myself and saying what I think.
339
I do not think you can name many great inventions that have been made by married men.
340
There was a time when men thought it was sexy to have a housewife waiting for him to come home from work in her slippers, but in modern society, I think an independent woman is even more sexy.
341
Do you wish people to think well of you? Don’t speak well of yourself.
342
It’s always hard to deal with injuries mentally, but I like to think about it as a new beginning. I can’t change what happened, so the focus needs to go toward healing and coming back stronger than before.
343
I think anybody who is interested in keeping their money safe from the criminal banking system would want gold, silver, and Bitcoin.
344
One must think like a hero to behave like a merely decent human being.
May Sarton
345
I think you need to go through some stuff to really appreciate life and understand what it means to persevere, overcome and have faith. I think those tough times make you a stronger person.
Judith Hill
346
If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that’s a full day. That’s a heck of a day. You do that seven days a week, you’re going to have something special.
347
Absolutely, I think every day is a new day, every day is a new opportunity, and every day is a new chance.
348
Do the one thing you think you cannot do. Fail at it. Try again. Do better the second time. The only people who never tumble are those who never mount the high wire. This is your moment. Own it.
349
Just remember your thoughts control your whole reality. Everything you think of you can accomplish. Your thoughts are your reality. People realize that and everybody would be up.
350
Are my politics Democrat or Republican? I think both are horrific. And it doesn’t matter anyway. Money runs America; money runs everywhere.
351
Intuition is the key to everything, in painting, filmmaking, business – everything. I think you could have an intellectual ability, but if you can sharpen your intuition, which they say is emotion and intellect joining together, then a knowingness occurs.
352
I like to think of myself as classy.
Ieva Laguna
353
Space is big. You just won’t believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it’s a long way down the road to the drug store, but that’s just peanuts to space.
354
Memories are the best things in life, I think.
Romy Schneider
355
Music is everybody’s possession. It’s only publishers who think that people own it.
356
Some people care too much. I think it’s called love.
357
Research is to see what everybody else has seen, and to think what nobody else has thought.
Albert Szent-Gyorgyi
358
I travel light. I think the most important thing is to be in a good mood and enjoy life, wherever you are.
359
God is bigger than people think.
Jimmy Dean
360
When I was a kid, I used to think, ‘Man, if I could ever afford all the ice cream I want to eat, that’s as rich as I ever want to be.’
Jimmy Dean
361
People always say that you can’t please everybody. I think that’s a cop-out. Why not attempt it? ‘Cause think of all the people you will please if you try.
362
You hear about quality time a lot but I really think that quantity time with a person is really what strengthens a relationship. That’s when you really get to know somebody. You get to know their strengths and their weaknesses and that brings you closer. That’s what ‘Time Is Love’ is all about.
363
I don’t think we need more gun control laws.
364
Time is the most valuable thing on earth: time to think, time to act, time to extend our fraternal relations, time to become better men, time to become better women, time to become better and more independent citizens.
Samuel Gompers
365
Just getting older, you stop caring what other people think, but also, you know who you are, and you know what you want.
366
The real problem is not whether machines think but whether men do.
367
We have self-centered minds which get us into plenty of trouble. If we do not come to understand the error in the way we think, our self-awareness, which is our greatest blessing, is also our downfall.
Joko Beck
368
I think you can make fun of anything except things people can’t help. They can’t help their race or their sex or their age, so you ridicule their pretension or their ego instead. You can ridicule ideas – ideas don’t have feelings. You can ridicule an idea that someone holds without hurting them.
369
I’ve always taken risks, and never worried what the world might really think of me.
370
People who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of us who do.
371
What we face may look insurmountable. But I learned something from all those years of training and competing. I learned something from all those sets and reps when I didn’t think I could lift another ounce of weight. What I learned is that we are always stronger than we know.
372
Some people think luxury is the opposite of poverty. It is not. It is the opposite of vulgarity.
373
Pizza makes me think that anything is possible.
374
One of the funny things about the stock market is that every time one person buys, another sells, and both think they are astute.
375
I never regret or sit back and think that I shouldn’t have said something. There are a lot of people who tell me that you shouldn’t say this or that or should keep quiet, and I really think that I can either be true to my conscience or can live a fake life by staying quiet.
376
Not everyone can be trusted. I think we all have to be very selective about the people we trust.
Shelley Long
377
One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.
378
I like to think of ideas as potential energy. They’re really wonderful, but nothing will happen until we risk putting them into action.
379
One of the biggest curses from which India is suffering – I do not say that other countries are free from it, but I think our condition is much worse – is bribery and corruption. That really is a poison.
380
I’m extremely easy to watch. I think I’m generally handsome, charming.
381
Words make you think a thought. Music makes you feel a feeling. A song makes you feel a thought.
E. Y. Harburg
382
My body is like breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I don’t think about it, I just have it.
383
I think; therefore I am.
Rene Descartes
384
I think we all have empathy. We may not have enough courage to display it.
385
When you want something so badly, you just do it. You don’t think about how hard it’s going to be.
Lisa Vidal
386
The mind is everything. What you think you become.
387
The scientists of today think deeply instead of clearly. One must be sane to think clearly, but one can think deeply and be quite insane.
388
Small is the number of people who see with their eyes and think with their minds.
389
I think we have a good chance of surviving long enough to colonize the solar system.
390
Let us ask ourselves, ‘What kind of people do we think we are?’ And let us answer, ‘Free people, worthy of freedom and determined not only to remain so but to help others gain their freedom as well.’
391
I have no right, by anything I do or say, to demean a human being in his own eyes. What matters is not what I think of him; it is what he thinks of himself. To undermine a man’s self-respect is a sin.
392
Think about what people are doing on Facebook today. They’re keeping up with their friends and family, but they’re also building an image and identity for themselves, which in a sense is their brand. They’re connecting with the audience that they want to connect to. It’s almost a disadvantage if you’re not on it now.
393
Revenge is a sorrow for the person who has to take it on. And the person who is rash enough to think it’s going to help a situation is always wrong.
394
Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat.
395
If you think you can do it, you can.
396
I think you create your own hipness.
Peabo Bryson
397
I think people should have fun. And don’t get so down on yourself. Enjoy life and be the best person you can be.
398
Don’t think. Thinking is the enemy of creativity. It’s self-conscious, and anything self-conscious is lousy. You can’t try to do things. You simply must do things.

People who have never dealt with depression think it’s just being sad or being in a bad mood. That’s not what depression is for me; it’s falling into a state of grayness and numbness.
400
Happiness is a state of mind, you know. I don’t think you are permanently happy. One is happy about certain things and not so happy about others.
401
I think people like watching edgy things.
402
My best personality trait that I think I’m very approachable. And my worst is that I can be moody.
403
I think an eyebrow can change the way you feel. It changes everything about your confidence.
404
I don’t think of myself as hot or cool or anything, just a dork.
405
You have to enjoy life. Always be surrounded by people that you like, people who have a nice conversation. There are so many positive things to think about.
406
As you think, so shall you become.
Bruce Lee
407
The most dangerous man to any government is the man who is able to think things out… without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane, intolerable.
408
When you look at Prince Charles, don’t you think that someone in the Royal family knew someone in the Royal family?
409
I have no faith in human perfectability. I think that human exertion will have no appreciable effect upon humanity. Man is now only more active – not more happy – nor more wise, than he was 6000 years ago.
410
I think that when you get dressed in the morning, sometimes you’re really making a decision about your behavior for the day. Like if you put on flipflops, you’re saying: ‘Hope I don’t get chased today.’ ‘Be nice to people in sneakers.’
411
Never be afraid to sit a while and think.
412
I always think about the idea that God never gives you more than you can handle, and just the idea that God would be looking at me and thinking, ‘Eh, I think she can handle more.’ And the angels thinking, ‘What are you doing? You’re a lunatic.’ And God being like, ‘No, no, trust me. She can handle this.’
413
Curiosity about life in all of its aspects, I think, is still the secret of great creative people.
414
I think that’s the most beautiful thing about being confident – just loving yourself, not caring what everybody else thinks. Because you could be Mother Theresa, and people are still going to try to find some imperfection.
415
I think the eyes flirt most. There are so many ways to use them.
416
It is wrong to think that the task of physics is to find out how Nature is. Physics concerns what we say about Nature.
Niels Bohr
417
We live on this speck called Earth – think about what you might do, today or tomorrow – and make the most of it.
418
It takes the same effort to think small than to think big. But to think big frees you from the insignificant details.
Jorge Paulo Lemann
419
A lot of people think the Breakfast for Children program is charity. But what does it do? It takes the people from a stage to another stage. Any program that’s revolutionary is an advancing program. Revolution is change.
420
I think that we all do heroic things, but hero is not a noun, it’s a verb.
421
Think you’re escaping and run into yourself. Longest way round is the shortest way home.
422
I think you should always bear in mind that entropy is not on your side.
423
The only way to get love is to be lovable. It’s very irritating if you have a lot of money. You’d like to think you could write a check: ‘I’ll buy a million dollars‘ worth of love.’ But it doesn’t work that way. The more you give love away, the more you get.
424
On a good day I think I’m handsome, on an average day I’m average. I’m a man’s man so I don’t necessarily know how cute we’re supposed to be.
425
If you get up in the morning and think the future is going to be better, it is a bright day. Otherwise, it’s not.
426
Pain makes man think. Thought makes man wise. Wisdom makes life endurable.
John Patrick
427
I personally think if something’s not a challenge, there’s no point doing it, because you’re not gonna learn much.
428
I think laughter and stimulating conversation are the things that truly make a romantic evening.
429
Everything is political. I will never be a politician or even think political. Me just deal with life and nature. That is the greatest thing to me.
430
Whatever you do to gain success, you have to hang in there and hope good things happen. Always think positive.
431
Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another steppingstone to greatness.
432
Maturity is the ability to think, speak and act your feelings within the bounds of dignity. The measure of your maturity is how spiritual you become during the midst of your frustrations.
Samuel Ullman
433
You can look in the mirror and find a million things wrong with yourself. Or you can look in the mirror and think, ‘I feel good, I have my health, and I’m so blessed.’ That’s the way I choose to look at it.
434
I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it’s the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It’s probably the most important thing in a person.
435
Whatever obstacle comes your way, you gotta be prepared to jump over it! And I think that’s what separates the legends from the regular artists. It’s all in how you manage that success, and how you deal with the controversy when it actually comes.
Akon
436
We would accomplish many more things if we did not think of them as impossible.
437
Reserve your right to think, for even to think wrongly is better than not to think at all.
Hypatia
438
Never think that war, no matter how necessary, nor how justified, is not a crime.
439
You must do the things you think you cannot do.
440
I have found little that is ‘good’ about human beings on the whole. In my experience most of them are trash, no matter whether they publicly subscribe to this or that ethical doctrine or to none at all. That is something that you cannot say aloud, or perhaps even think.
441
People see police officers and think they’re such bad people. We have some who can be some bad people. But we have some great ones out there, that are here to protect us.
442
Think off-center.
443
With all of the bad things that are happening in the world right now, I think we need a message of togetherness and true unity. I believe that starts with personal reflection and then we can find kindness toward each other.
444
I used to think I was ugly because I was the baby.
445
And above all things, never think that you’re not good enough yourself. A man should never think that. My belief is that in life people will take you at your own reckoning.
446
A birthday is just another day where you go to work and people give you love. Age is just a state of mind, and you are as old as you think you are. You have to count your blessings and be happy.
447
To live is to think.
448
Coming home, we stopped for a bite to eat and ran into a confused waitress. Had a heart-rending time trying to speak the Words of Life to her, and as I think of all this country now, many just as confused, and more so, I realized that the 39th Street bus is as much a mission field as Africa ever was.
449
A lot of country music is sad. I think most art comes out of poverty and hard times. It applies to music. Three chords and the truth – that’s what a country song is. There is a lot of heartache in the world.
450
I don’t think that one moment in people’s life should define them. Within reason: I emphasise that.
451
Competition is great. And as long as it’s friendly and not a malicious thing, then I think it’s cool.
452
I try not to think about my life. I have no life. I need therapy.
453
We must think and act like a nation of a billion people and not like that of a million people. Dream, dream, dream!
454
Haters never win. I just think that’s true about life, because negative energy always costs in the end.
455
I don’t care what I look like; it’s how people think of me. And I do care how people think of me. I want people to say, ‘Oh, she’s nice,’ rather than, ‘Oh, she’s so pretty.’
456
I do think there is a lot of potential if you have a compelling product and people are willing to pay a premium for that. I think that is what Apple has shown. You can buy a much cheaper cell phone or laptop, but Apple’s product is so much better than the alternative, and people are willing to pay that premium.
457
One of the luckiest things that can happen to you in life is, I think, to have a happy childhood.
458
All intelligent thoughts have already been thought; what is necessary is only to try to think them again.
459
I have learned that only two things are necessary to keep one’s wife happy. First, let her think she’s having her own way. And second, let her have it.
460
To be sensual, I think, is to respect and rejoice in the force of life, of life itself, and to be present in all that one does, from the effort of loving to the making of bread.
461
Sometimes I sit down and I think ‘Do I regret this? Do I regret that?’ And I feel like everything makes this snowball effect, you know? If you regret something, it’s good because it just means that it’s something that’s affected you enough for you to stop and think… There’s a reason that everything happens.
462
I don’t think I’m an unlucky person.
463
There’s a reason I live in the Maine woods, where nobody knows what I do for a living. I think you can be better if someone who’s coming to see you perform has no idea who you really are.
464
I think I look really weird with short hair. So I figured if I’ve got a mustache, I think it looks less creepy with long hair. Like a wild look.
465
The thought of being President frightens me and I do not think I want the job.
466
Life is short and the older you get, the more you feel it. Indeed, the shorter it is. People lose their capacity to walk, run, travel, think, and experience life. I realise how important it is to use the time I have.
467
I have very short hair. It’s the only cute haircut I think I’ve ever had.
468
We’re all expendable. We think the world’s going to stop when a pope dies, or a king. And then… life goes on.
469
If we only wanted to be happy, it would be easy; but we want to be happier than other people, and that is almost always difficult, since we think them happier than they are.
470
I have often been asked what I think about at the moment of take-off. Of course, no pilot sits and feels his pulse as he flies. He has to be part of the machine. If he thinks of anything but the task in hand, then trouble is probably just around the corner.
Amelia Earhart
471
I think it’s important to have closure in any relationship that ends – from a romantic relationship to a friendship. You should always have a sense of clarity at the end and know why it began and why it ended. You need that in your life to move cleanly into your next phase.
472
Contradictions do not exist. Whenever you think you are facing a contradiction, check your premises. You will find that one of them is wrong.
473
I think fearless is having fears but jumping anyway.
474
My favourite words are possibilities, opportunities and curiosity. I think if you are curious, you create opportunities, and then if you open the doors, you create possibilities.
475
I think we are all insecure, and there is nothing wrong in accepting that. But the problem arises when we try to counter this insecurity by cultivating this illusion of control, and we start taking ourselves and everything we know too seriously.
476
In a competition, there’s always winners and losers. And I think everyone is here to win, which makes it fun for us all.
477
I think that sexuality is only attractive when it’s natural and spontaneous.
478
Drones overall will be more impactful than I think people recognize, in positive ways to help society.
479
I think the perfection of love is that it’s not perfect.
480
If you read history you will find that the Christians who did most for the present world were precisely those who thought most of the next. It is since Christians have largely ceased to think of the other world that they have become so ineffective in this.
481
Think only of the past as its remembrance gives you pleasure.
482
If you don’t like me, life goes on, you know what I mean? But I hope you do like me. Because I think that in addition to being pushy, I’m nice.
483
Just be confident. I think confidence is the most attractive part of a person.
484
I’ve found beauty in such unexpected places. I think the most beautiful thing you can do is be yourself and to own it.
485
I’m a people lover. I love interacting with different people as I meet them, and I think people are one of God’s greatest creations, I really do. They’re interesting and intriguing.
486
I think people generally are lost, as they keep thinking about what is going to happen and what they have done. They are not alive anymore. The art of listening is missing. In their head, they are doing something else.
487
I do not think much of a man who is not wiser today than he was yesterday.
488
Think for yourselves and let others enjoy the privilege to do so, too.
489
That a man be willing, when others are so too, as far forth as for peace and defense of himself he shall think it necessary, to lay down this right to all things; and be contented with so much liberty against other men, as he would allow other men against himself.
490
I think a child should be allowed to take his father’s or mother‘s name at will on coming of age. Paternity is a legal fiction.
491
Some people think I am gay, which I think is awesome.
492
I think it’s wrong that only one company makes the game Monopoly.
493
The petty man is eager to make boasts, yet desires that others should believe in him. He enthusiastically engages in deception, yet wants others to have affection for him. He conducts himself like an animal, yet wants others to think well of him.
494
I think that everybody needs four things in life. Everybody needs something to do regardless of age. Everybody needs someone to love. Everybody needs something to hope for, and, of course, everybody needs someone to believe in.
495
People don’t want to go to the dump and have a picnic, they want to go out to a beautiful place and enjoy their day. And so I think our job is to try to take the environment, take what the good Lord has given us, and expand upon it or enhance it, without destroying it.
496
I just think I’m blessed. I love the Lord Jesus Christ. I have a great grandmother that passed away at 104 and two grandparents that passed away at 97 and 95, and they never worried about protein. They just enjoyed life, and that’s what I’m doing.
497
Do you wish to be great? Then begin by being. Do you desire to construct a vast and lofty fabric? Think first about the foundations of humility. The higher your structure is to be, the deeper must be its foundation.
498
I think the environment should be put in the category of our national security. Defense of our resources is just as important as defense abroad. Otherwise what is there to defend?
499
I always think today is better than yesterday, and tomorrow is better than today.
