For a minute there, I thought I was getting forgetful.

I thought that was the best way to carry her.

Why did every thought train follow the tracks to Bordeaux?
The more she learned about the way he thought, the more she was convinced that people around him were the strange ones, not Cade.

And worse yet, Cade had thought she was going along with his skit.
Betsy was safe with a nine and I thought my four bought me cot until Howie's snake eyes saved me.
I suppose I'd begin to doubt myself the more I thought about it.
I thought I'd be back before you guys woke up.
You know, Howie, I've given some thought to your flying saucer analogy.
If something occurs that is thought to be impossible, it either isn't impossible or it didn't occur.
I lay there several minutes after I awoke and thought about what Howie experienced.
Life would be filled with mutual concessions I thought as I tucked my tee shirt into a bottom drawer.
I was sure he was making a mistake about the priesthood and I thought I was proving it.
She thought for a moment.
We gave only limited thought to the upcoming session as our pre wedding trip and plans took precedence in our hectic schedule.
We gave him our assurances we'd not violate his trust though I thought Betsy's suggestion was reasonable.
Howie thought he recognized the Chicago skyline in the distance but it was too far away to tell.
We only managed four sessions; one to an uninhabited area, another in open farm land but one we thought was interesting.
None of us would admit it out loud, but each harbored the same thought.
I started to question him, but thought better of it, letting Martha continue.
I thought about it for the entire night.
It was some distance from the farm house and he thought he might not get to it before it left.
The more I thought about it, the more I was convinced of the incredible scope of Howie's gift.
Martha made the call, saying she thought she saw a girl taking a short cut across the pond.
I thought about it, not to chase you down, but so I wouldn't forget anything you might say.
Howie broke out in a sweat when he thought about actually witnessing a killing.
I thought he would jump at a chance to devote more time to experimentation even if it wasn't as broad as he wished.
Personally, the thought we might work together in one location, absent the hectic schedule presently exhausting us, made me giddy and set my mind a-tumble with possibilities.
I remembered the name Martha mentioned, Willard Humphries, thought guilty, but jailed for a lesser crime.
We thought we had him this time but he has receipts and papers from Chicago where he claims he attended a weekend art shindig.
If we thought Howie was upset over the Youngblood matter, it was arsenic versus ice cream compared to how enraged he was over a challenge to his ability.
If we thought that was the end of the glitches, we were foolishly naïve indeed.
He probably thought we'd have talked her out of leaving, or at least into leaving their new identities with us.
Good question, I thought.
Perhaps, just perhaps, I thought, I could somehow use this information to my advantage.
He thought Molly is was my daughter.
I could tell by the look on his face, he'd had no such thought.
I thought I knew but I asked anyway.
I thought you might want to stand by.
The thought distracted her, and she both yearned to be with him and hated herself for not being able to shake the thought of him.
He almost chortled at the ridiculous thought, wishing someone was there with him to tell.
She sensed Talon was about to rebel, as was she at the thought of swimming after such an exhausting walk.
Dean waved his arms and at first thought the driver didn't see them, but finally the vehicle stopped.
At first the piglet stuck in the neck of the vase and I thought I should get him, after all, but he wriggled himself through and fell down into the deep bottom part--and I suppose he's there yet.
The 1920s to 1950s renderings of what people thought the future would look like are full of things like personal jetpacks and flying cars.
Its reawakening of the arts derived chiefly from seeking to recapture something thought lost from a past Golden Age.
On a sudden thought I ran upstairs before any one could stop me, to put on my idea of a company dress.
I thought then that I was "making up a story," as children say, and I eagerly sat down to write it before the ideas should slip from me.
Before I entered college, however, it was thought best that I should study another year under Mr. Keith.
But college is not the universal Athens I thought it was.
I am always delighted when anyone writes me a beautiful thought which I can treasure in my memory forever.
I do try to think that he is still near, very near; but sometimes the thought that he is not here, that I shall not see him when I go to Boston,--that he is gone,--rushes over my soul like a great wave of sorrow.
That is why I thought about starting one.
She knew that I was much troubled, and would have liked to stay near me; but I thought it best for her to sit by herself.
When it was time for the church service to begin, she was in such a state of excitement that I thought it best to take her away; but Captain Keller said, "No, she will be all right."
Mademoiselle Bourienne, also roused to great excitement by Anatole's arrival, thought in another way.
Can it be possible? she thought, not daring to look at his face, but still feeling his eyes gazing at her.
The old prince knew that if he told his daughter she was making a mistake and that Anatole meant to flirt with Mademoiselle Bourienne, Princess Mary's self-esteem would be wounded and his point (not to be parted from her) would be gained, so pacifying himself with this thought, he called Tikhon and began to undress.
The countess, who heard at once from the maids what had happened at the lodge, was calmed by the thought that now their affairs would certainly improve, but on the other hand felt anxious as to the effect this excitement might have on her son.
Dessalles looked in amazement at the prince, who was talking of the Niemen when the enemy was already at the Dnieper, but Princess Mary, forgetting the geographical position of the Niemen, thought that what her father was saying was correct.
He sat down, sank into thought, closed his eyes, and dozed off.
What gentleness and nobility there are in her features and expression! thought he as he looked at her and listened to her timid story.
It also revealed something that gave her pause for thought.
He paced back and forth across the room, deep in thought.
Carmen glanced at him, but he was still deep in thought.
Señor Medena leaned back in his chair, his attention lost in thought.
He picked at a thread on the couch, his mind obviously lost in deep thought.
Señor Medena was watching her again in that strange way, as if it truly mattered what she thought.
Carmen let loose of his waist, moving away from the unclean thought.
All this time I thought the company was interested in him because he could speak both Spanish and English.
Why hadn't she thought of his comment in that context?
Was it because he thought she wouldn't?
I thought she was getting better.
The medication they were giving her to clear up the congestion in her lungs was making her sleep a lot, but they thought that was better than having her upset all the time.
She probably thought Destiny was a spoiled child.
Who would have thought he would become attached to a child that was neither his own blood nor male?
Carmen stared at him, trying to follow his runaway thought train.
His gaze wandered away in reflective thought.
Her first thought was that it was a puppy someone had dropped off.
Seducing him was something she thought would be difficult, but it was actually enjoyable.
It was hard to say whether Alex was withholding facts so she couldn't contest his decisions or simply because he thought she did not need to know.
Immediately after that thought came another - more painful.
Maybe she didn't know him as well as she thought she did.
Maybe she thought you would deny it was yours.
You thought I lied to you.
I suppose so, but I thought I could work it out.
That should have been no big surprise, but Carmen would have thought he would welcome the idea of a willing heir.
You have thought much about what we discussed yesterday?
As if Matthew thought the encouragement was intended for him, he latched onto her breast, creating a suction that sent tiny bubbles down the feeding tube.
He paused, obviously struck by another thought.
He didn't respond, and she thought it best to direct her energy to walking rather than talking.
She caught her breath as another thought struck her.
He took it harder than I thought he would, but being able to keep Tammy took the edge off it.
I always thought he felt more pity than love for the old lady.
If Sarah thought she understood Yancey's moods, she was mistaken.
If he thought he could terrorize her, he had another think coming.
I thought we came out here to look over the country.
Howard gave me the directions and I thought I'd stop by.
I saw it in the paper yesterday and thought since I had Saturday off, I'd come out and look at it for you.
There for a while I thought you never would again.
She hadn't thought about his feelings or motive to help.
He probably thought she had led him on.
The thought had crossed her mind – briefly.
Most of the boys she dated would never have thought of practicing the age-old custom of walking around the car to open her door, or guiding her through the crowd with a gentle hand on one elbow.
The thought must have occurred to Yancey as well, and he reassured Tammy in a voice choked with suppressed humor.
That thought spoiled the evening.
Judging by his expression, he probably thought it was provocative.
I thought you might want to go with Mom and Tammy.
I guess if he thought it was any of my business, he'd tell me.
With that dark thought, she excused herself and went to her room.
I thought I heard you crying this morning.
For a few minutes she thought her windpipe was crushed.
The one person she thought she could trust had turned on her.
Give the matter some thought and discuss it.
I thought maybe they had to think about it before they called, but then they practically beg me to pass on the information immediately.
I thought about asking Martha; she was around some when I was growing up.
They thought I was teaching my kids.
I tried to comprehend his thought process but I found it irrational.
I thought of leaving a note of thanks to the Psychic Tipster, so kindly confiding to me, albeit vicariously through dear departed Brenda, his or her limitations.
I agreed with Merrill Cooms to give the matter serious thought.
What are your thought concerning our love sick member?
I knew this conversation deserved more thought on my part but it felt good taking some action, even if it might prove misguided.
Now I have another dazzling thought, bred from my brilliant research.
He thought a moment before answering.
This is off the record but someone else thought to be a possible lead to the tipster was threatened recently.
My wife thought he should go or Howie should simply kiss his mother's hand, give an excuse of pressing business, and come back east.
When I first met Howie in class I thought he was just this lonely guy but he seemed nice and we had coffee a time of two.
She thought you might be upset.
She kissed and hugged her daughter until I thought I'd have to pull them apart, but finally left in Howie's car for Boston and her flight.
Molly started to bite her lip and I thought tears would follow but Betsy grabbed her hand.
I always thought they had a pretty solid marriage, especially with Claire, but she's acting as crazy as a teenager and just watching her marriage crumble.
Betsy thought you could use some company, that's all.
Still, you'd have thought she'd lost the Hope diamond the way she carried on.
I thought Martha would faint.
Another chore for Howie, I thought.
She told our neighbor Mildred she'd done something she regretted 'cause now she really liked this guy and thought maybe she'd messed things up between them.
He wore a pulled up hoodie, but he was taller than our guy and Howie thought he was younger.
I thought of Frank Vasapolli and the difficulty he had securing certain information.
I gave him Frank Vasapolli's phone number and told him I would pass along his number to Frank if I thought it was needed.
He paused before saying he thought Howie suspected it might have been Molly's father or some old boyfriend.
She asked if I thought Martha would fly out for the funeral or memorial service.
I thought only briefly before giving him Daniel Brennan's phone number.
He thought she was really the psychic tipster and was responsible for his arrest?
Yes, I thought, there were scores of people who wanted to murder Howie.
I passed out for a few minutes, I guess, and then I thought I was alone so I started crawling toward the door.
When Betsy mentioned telling the After people, a thought struck me that the death of Owen Bryce, once known to our friends at After would probably tie me directly to the tipster as well.
I told her Owen Bryce was killed while attacking someone he thought was connected to the tipster.
I closed my eyes as I thought of a dozen questions about security breach.
Then suddenly I thought of another matter entirely.
The more I thought about it, the more I felt Quinn, Martha and baby Claire might be gone.
I thought when all this was behind us, we could reminisce about it and maybe revel in all the good we managed to accomplish.
Creeping around campgrounds at midnight didn't seem like a well thought out plan.
I thought we'd finished with the vicarious act of contrition but no such luck.
Could you just talk to the guy who got out of jail; the one everyone thought killed my sister?
Molly thought this was a splendid story.
I thought about what he said.
I drove by earlier with my family and we thought we saw a friend's rig back in the corner.
I thought you might be a bit more accommodating.
He must have thought it fruitless to pursue that angle so he moved on.
I thought about what my wife said as I looked around our beautiful property.
He wants me to get you to talk to that sex offender who's free; the one they thought killed Annie.
I'd talk to the guy if I thought it would accomplish something but he'll just say he didn't do it and it would be a waste of a phone call.
I gave a lot of thought to that question because of all the fingers pointing at me.
He thought everyone else was below him and not in the usual way.
You see, guys who just hunted down women looked down on the children snatchers and the scum that took on little girls thought they were a rank better than the little boy snatchers.
If I thought sermonizing would wear out Willard for my questions, I was dead wrong.
Willard thought for a moment.
She shuddered at the thought.
I thought he was pondering what I said until he spoke up.
There is on one to connect me to New Hampshire though this little group who thought they were so clever hiding in that silly business in Keene might suspect that the one they hunted is now hunting them!
Jackson must have thought I didn't hear him because he repeated what he'd said.
A thousand thought and memories shuffled through my brain like black jack deck.
I hadn't thought of baby Claire!
I thought for a moment the woman might cry out but my look froze her to silence.
I thought I might be able to fix the time setting by trial and error but I was at a loss establishing a location.
I hummed a tune I remembered my mother singing to me as I strolled to the barn to slay the lying witch-bitch who thought she'd tricked.
I cringed at the thought of who might have spent their last nights on earth on that pallet.
The thought of us residing in utter blindness petrified me!
They thought her too young to understand words like coma and deteriorating, and they accused her of lying when she said she could help him.
He'd never thought twice of his mortality-- he had none.
She thought, hopes rising.
He hadn't thought twice about Toni's message that he'd delivered the package from the stash house to his condo until he walked in and discovered the vamp he expected was a woman.
His blood quickened with bloodlust at the thought of ending the life of another miserable vamp.
He hadn't thought it as harsh as it was, just like he thought nothing of killing anything in his path, but seeing the look on a normal human's face reminded him he'd been close to losing what humanity he possessed for quite a while.
He hadn't thought of his sister or his loss for some time.
At first she thought it was the thunderstorm she'd fallen asleep listening to.
Sasha thought of everything before he left.
For a moment, she thought she should know him.
The poison she thought she'd cleared from his body lingered.
He glared at her, unable to shake the sense that if Bianca hadn't thought smarter than him, she'd be dead.
Bianca healed me earlier, and I thought I could do more than I could, especially since ....
This weekend looks worse than we thought.
She couldn't bear the thought of him returning to the troubled teen he'd been and tried to think of something to say to straddle the line between mothering him and letting him be his own person.
This is where I die, he thought.
Thought I'd return the favor.
He paused, bristling with lightning and rage at the thought of Darian betraying their family.
The last was a thought he never expected to have.
I thought it was strange, since Jimmy's the last person who would veer off course from your orders because you let him blow up whatever he wants and he doesn't wanna lose that.
Her stomach dropped at the thought of him, and her eyes watered.
His jaw clenched as he thought again of Bianca.
I thought she was here with you but when I got here, I didn't see her.
Several times she'd thought Dusty had the upper hand and could've killed the leering vamp, and several times, he'd stopped, once with a glance at his watch.
He hadn't thought himself unhappy; he'd never thought about it at all.
I thought I lost you!
His heart rejoiced at the thought of his own mate carrying his child, but he couldn't help but to think of his own upbringing.
Probably because you never thought you'd have to cross Ireland on foot.
This thought she kept to herself.
But I thought … I thought he wouldn't come for a while.
I thought your kind hated humans.
Pacing in her room, she tried hard not to think of what her father was capable of doing to someone he thought was a threat to her.
And how did she stomach the thought of her father doing such a thing to someone?
She thought of how she'd felt safe with Jule during their brief encounter.
He watched her go, suspecting he'd missed more than he thought during the few months he spent with Jule in Europe.
He was a fool if he thought he could fight a creature that didn't die!
Never thought I'd say this, but I think I need a doctor.
That's what you thought I meant?
I'd have thought you had tons of friends.
