10 QUOTES WITH «CONCEPT»

Famous quotes and sentences with the word concept.
1
Chris Bangle
I think the durability of the sedan as well as its worldwide appeal argues well for it as a concept that resonates with people's ideas about how their lives are oriented. They understand the difference between an area for powertrain, an area for people, and an area for their stuff.
2
Susan Blackmore
One of the biggest mistakes that people make when they think about memes is they try to extend on the analogy with genes. That's not how it works. It works by realizing the concept of a replicator.
3
Neill Blomkamp
'District 9', 'Elysium' and 'Chappie' were all born out of some visual concept first. 'Chappie' is the imagery, because I think I'm a visual person first, of this ridiculous robot character. It's much more comedy based and in an unusual setting.
4
Orlando Bloom
I wondered how they would top the Pirates and skeletons and moonlight, because that's a pretty cool concept.
5
Suzy Bogguss
For some reason, the concept of writing with swing chords was intimidating.
6
Jorge Luis Borges
One concept corrupts and confuses the others. I am not speaking of the Evil whose limited sphere is ethics; I am speaking of the infinite.
7
John Boyne
War today is such a more visible thing. We see it on television, on CNN. In 1914, war was a concept.
8
Howard Graham Buffett
The whole concept behind 'Forty Chances' is really a mindset: If everybody thought they had to put themselves out of business in 40 years, you had 40 chances to succeed in what your primary goals are, you would probably be more urgent and you would be forced to change quicker.
9
Tony Campolo
Freud taught us that it wasn't God that imposed judgment on us and made us feel guilty when we stepped out of line. Instead, it was the superego - that idealized concept of what a good person is supposed to be and do - given to us by our parents, that condemned us for what had been hitherto regarded as ungodly behavior.
10
James Collins
If I had a personal wish for the new ideas in this new book it would be that every parent, every counselor, every teacher, every professor, every sports coach that deals with young people would understand the three circle concept.
