thought

And so it was when anyone tried to speak: their minds would become tangled in remembrance. Words became floods of thought with no beginning or end, and would drown the speaker before he could reach the life raft of the point he was trying to make. It was impossible to remember what one meant, what, after all of the words, was intended.

Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything is Illuminated

It occurred to me that the voracious ambition of humans is never sated by dreams coming true, because there is always the thought that everything might be done better and again.

John Green, The Fault in our Stars

When the script for ‘Once’ came my way, I had the thought that maybe it will last only a season. But I was willing to take that risk.

Lana Parrilla

We assign a moment to decision, to dignify the process as a timely result of rational and conscious thought. But decisions are made of kneaded feelings; they are more often a lump than a sum.

Thomas Harris, Hannibal

When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking.

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

He told himself that everything was fine — he only had to look at the sleeping dog on the floor if he doubted — but in the middle of the night it was hard to be an optimist. When the dawn was still long hours away, bad thoughts took on flesh and began to walk. In the middle of the night thoughts became zombies.

Stephen King, Under The Dome

Give thought to life and liberty.

Cyrano de Bergerac

I am the ball, my thoughts are its thoughts, its holes are my holes.

Dr. Sheldon Cooper, The Big Bang Theory

There is no love in thought, nothing that lasts in deduction, only death in rationalism.

Stephen King, The Dark Tower
