Sense

Common sense is the collection of prejudices acquired by age eighteen.

It's no wonder that truth is stranger than fiction. Fiction has to make sense.

Without a sense of urgency, desire loses its value.

All things make sense; you just have to fathom how they make sense.

Our choices in life are made according to our sense of our own worth.

Only one thing is impossible for God: To find any sense in any copyright law on the planet.

One doesn't have a sense of humor. It has you.

Art is a sense of magic.

Genius ain't anything more than elegant common sense.

People think love is an emotion. Love is good sense.

If you sense there must be more, there is more.

What we're doing is fun - if you have any sense of humor at all! - Calvin Klein

Money is like a sixth sense without which you cannot make a complete use of the other five.

Nonsense is so good only because common sense is so limited.

Common sense and a sense of humor are the same thing, moving at different speeds. A sense of humor is just common sense, dancing.

Love does not cause suffering: what causes it is the sense of ownership, which is love's opposite.

It would be possible to describe everything scientifically, but it would make no sense; it would be without meaning, as if you described a Beethoven symphony as a variation of wave pressure.

The possession of knowledge does not kill the sense of wonder and mystery. There is always more mystery.

The simplest explanation is that it doesn't make sense.
