"'Castle' is a guy living in a fantasy world. He's in his imagination, writing these stories of murder."
"Imagination is more important than knowledge."Nathan Fillion on Albert Einstein

"Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life's coming attractions."Nathan Fillion on Albert Einstein
"I cannot imagine a God who rewards and punishes the objects of his creation and is but a reflection of human frailty."Nathan Fillion on Albert Einstein

"I'm constantly pitching one episode where we see life through Castle's eyes. I think Castle's just a little off as far as his perception goes. A very, very clever man, but I want to see the world as Castle sees it - kind of a rose-colored glasses, all the women find him irresistible, all the guys find him super cool and do whatever he says."
"I'm comfortable only when there's a mutual attraction. That's what anyone wants. If I find out she's not attracted to me, it brings down my level of attraction to her. If I'm interested and find out she's not, I tend to cool off."
