HENRY DRUMMOND, Inherit the Wind (1960)
What's the most resilient parasite? An idea. A single idea from the human mind can build cities. An idea can transform the world and rewrite all the rules.
COBB, Inception (2010)
I don't care where an idea comes from as long as it makes sense and embarrasses someone.
DR. GREGORY HOUSE, House M.D., "Moving the Chains" (2010)
Bad ideas don't indicate a lack of intelligence, they indicate... an open mind.
DR. GREGORY HOUSE, House M.D., "Ugly" (2007)
I swallowed all of your ideas. I'm going to digest them and see what comes out the other end!
MICHAEL SCOTT, The Office, "The Surplus" (2008)
I think it's better to have ideas. You can change an idea. Changing a belief is trickier. Life should be malleable and progressive; working from idea to idea permits that. Beliefs anchor you to certain points and limit growth; new ideas can't generate. Life becomes stagnant.
RUFUS, Dogma (1999)
No matter what anybody tells you, words and ideas can change the world.
JOHN KEATING, Dead Poets Society (1989)
I've witnessed first hand the power of ideas. I've seen people kill in the name of them and die defending them. But you cannot kiss an idea, cannot touch it, or hold it. Ideas do not bleed, they do not feel pain, they do not love.
EVEY HAMMOND, V for Vendetta (2006)
Ideas planted too soon often like seeds on winter ground - quickly die.
CHARLIE CHAN, The Sky Dragon (1949)
