"You’re bound to get idears if you go thinkin’ about stuff."

– John Steinbeck

The Grapes of Wrath, Chapter 4. Tom Joad says this to Casy after the ex-preacher speaks about his spiritual re-birth since his days of being an evangelist. Tom is very practical and straight-thinking, in contrast to the complex Casy, who is a deep and questioning religious thinker.
