The best ideas come as jokes. Make your thinking as funny as possible. -David Ogilvy

The man who can make others laugh secures more votes for a measure than the man who forces them to think. -Malcolm de Chazal

A moment's thinking is an hour in words. -Thomas Hood

The President is the last person in the world to know what the people really want and think. -James A. Garfield

Now, I think that I should have known that he was magic all along. I did know it – but I should have guessed that it would be too much to ask to grow old with and see our children grow up together. So now, he is a legend when he would have preferred to be a man. -Jackie Kennedy

The best way of forgetting how you think you feel is to concentrate on what you know you know. -Mary Stewart

He that is giddy thinks the world turns round. -William Shakespeare

It's not a field, I think, for people who need to have success every day: if you can't live with a nightly sort of disaster, you should get out. I wouldn't describe myself as lacking in confidence, but I would just say that the ghosts you chase you never catch. -Michael Korda

I think being funny is not anyone's first choice. -Woody Allen

The very aim and end of our institutions is just this: that we may think what we like and say what we think. -Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.

A verbal art like poetry is reflective; it stops to think. Music is immediate, it goes on to become. -W. H. Auden

No man ever looks at the world with pristine eyes. He sees it edited by a definite set of customs and institutions and ways of thinking. -Ruth Benedict

I think the National League has better biorhythms in July. -Earl Weaver

I think there should be bad blood between all clubs. -Earl Weaver

Sometimes a week might go by when I don't think about that game, but I don't remember when it happened last. -Don Larsen

I think about the cosmic snowball theory. A few million years from now the sun will burn out and lose its gravitational pull. The earth will turn into a giant snowball and be hurled through space. When that happens it won't matter if I get this guy out. -Bill Lee

It helps if the hitter thinks you're a little crazy. -Nolan Ryan

I think there are some players born to play ball. -Joe DiMaggio

You always get a special kick on opening day, no matter how many you go through. You look forward to it like a birthday party when you're a kid. You think something wonderful is going to happen. -Joe DiMaggio

I think Little League is wonderful. It keeps the kids out of the house. -Yogi Berra

I think I was the best baseball player I ever saw. -Willie Mays

I don't know if I want to break my own record. I think I would rather leave it as it is. -Mark McGwire

Wouldn't it be great if we just ended up tied? I think it would be beautiful. -Mark McGwire

When you're in the middle of a pennant race, you can't go up there thinking about home runs. -Sammy Sosa

Any time you think you have the game conquered, the game will turn around and punch you right in the nose. -Mike Schmidt

If I'd just tried for them dinky singles I could've batted around .600. -Babe Ruth

I'll promise to go easier on drinking and to get to bed earlier, but not for you, fifty thousand dollars, or two-hundred and fifty thousand dollars will I give up women. They're too much fun. -Babe Ruth

Sliding headfirst is the safest way to get to the next base, I think, and the fastest. You don't lose your momentum, and there's one more important reason I slide headfirst, it gets my picture in the paper. -Pete Rose

It kills me to lose. If I'm a troublemaker, and I don't think that my temper makes me one, then it's because I can't stand losing. That's the way I am about winning, all I ever wanted to do was finish first. -Jackie Robinson

Thinking about the devil is worse than seeing the devil. -Branch Rickey

The Giants are looking for a trade but I don't think Atlanta wants to depart with a quality player. -Ron Fairly
