idea

A Quote by Gaston Bachelard on poetry, reading, idea, image, discover, book, and memory

Whoever lives for poetry must read everything. How often has the light of a new idea sprung for me from a simple brochure! When one allows himself to be animated by new images, he discovers iridescence in the images of old books. Poetic ages unite in a living memory. The new age awakens the old. The old age comes to live again in the new. Poetry is never as unified as when it diversifies.

Gaston Bachelard (1884 - 1962)

A Quote by Raphie on fight, idea, courage, conviction, intention, and action

How could I recognize, even at the last possible moment, that there was something left to fight for and then walk away when my highest ideal is to fight for the people I love? Especially when I finally felt I could match conviction with courage, intent with action?

A Quote by Dan Simmons on express, thought, genius, civilization, cosmos, word, idea, and human

Gass once wrote: "Language serves not only to express thought but to make possible thoughts which could not exist without it." Here is the essence of mankind's creative genius: not the edifices of civilization nor the bang-flash weapons which can end it, but the words which fertilize new concepts like spermatozoa attacking an ovum. It might be argued that the Siamese twin infants of word/idea are the only contribution the human species can, will, or should make to the raveling cosmos.

A Quote by Mitch on implementer, idea, creative, process, business, management, and skills

Implementers don’t care about the origins of ideas or the creative process; they are too busy with their own concerns, while idea people don’t often value the necessary financial and business management skills necessary for execution.

A Quote by Mitch on idea, corporation, convince, emotion, and project

When you have a great idea, sometimes the best way to make it happen within a large corporation is to convince others that it was their idea – to get them emotionally invested in the project.
