If an idea is not taken up and used as a solution to a problem it has no value. It becomes a non-idea. Lying in a drawer it is useless. Worse than useless, it’s a complete waste of space. Ideas have to be applied before they are recognized as good ideas. Even a bad idea executed Is better than a good idea undone. The longer it is used the better the idea is considered to be. That is why the wheel is reckoned to be the best idea ever.

Paul Arden

My mom used to say that (...) Easter was later because then you get stuff cheaper.

Amy Sedaris

You can never pinpoint the exact moment that a species came to be, because it never did. Just like how you used to be a baby and now you're older, but there was no single day when you went to bed young and woke up old. (...) There was no first human. It sounds like a paradox, it sounds like it breaks the whole theory of evolution, but it's really a key to truly understanding how evolution works. Evolution happens like a movie, with frames moving by both quickly and gradually, and we often can't see the change while it's occurring. Every time we find a fossil, it's a snapshot back in time, often with thousands of frames missing in between, and we're forced to reconstruct the whole film. Life is what happens in between the snapshots. Instead of a nice smooth road this is a journey on stepping stones and we give each one their own name.

Joe Hanson

In mathematics you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

John von Neumann

Changes only happen when we go totally against everything we`re used to doing.

Paulo Coelho

Truth is nothing, what you believe to be true is everything. And the main thing that I used to believe was that I would be with you forever. [...] If I had one wish, it would be that your life brings you a taste of the happiness you have brought to me. That you can feel what it`s like to love.

Waiting for Forever (movie)

You`re trapped in your lovely nest, and the things you used to own, now they own you.

Chuck Palahniuk

I used to think that`s what love was: knowing someone so well he was like a part of you.

Lauren Oliver

Today I overheard an American teenager comparing her deprivation to that of our children, because her parents would only buy her a used car. There are none so impoverished as those who do not acknowledge the abundance of their lives.

Richard Paul Evans

Bad is not an absolute, but a relative term. Ask the robber who used the cash he stole to feed his infant; the rapist who was sexually abused as a child; the kidnapper who truly believed he was saving a life. And just because you break the law doesn`t mean you have intentionally crossed the line into evil. Sometimes the line creeps up on you, and before you know it, you`re standing on the other side.

Jodi Picoult
