    There is a road from the eye to the heart that does not go through the intellect.

    Stupidity does not consist in being without ideas. Such stupidity would be the sweet, blissful stupidity of animals, molluscs and the gods. Human Stupidity consists in having lots of ideas, but stupid ones. Stupid ideas, with banners, hymns, loudspeakers and even tanks and flame-throwers as their instruments of persuasion, constitute the refined and the only really terrifying form of Stupidity.

    To think is not enough; you must think of something.

    It is desirable at times for ideas to possess a certain roughness, like drawings on heavy-grain paper. Thoughts having this quality are most likely to match the texture of actual experience.

    Man’s greatest misfortune is that he has no organ, no kind of eyelid or brake, to mask or block a thought, or all thought, when he wants to.

    Say what you think 

    The great consolation life is to say what one thinks.

    We are no more responsible for the evil thoughts which pass through our minds, than a scarecrow for the birds which fly over the seed-plot he has to guard; the sole responsibility in each case is to prevent them from settling.

    Thinking always clusters. That happens in groups, but more importantly, it happens over time. The movement of thought is sometimes slow and can sometimes even get stuck. A person with an idea worth pursuing will give rise to an interaction chain in time, held together in comparable chains of contributors, lurkers and opponents.
