  1. The Muppets have such a great tradition of bringing together all of genres of actors and all ages of actors.
  2. The music for ‘The Last Five Years’ is like running a 26-mile marathon, and singing Sondheim is like ballroom-dancing up Everest.
  3. The music of the Clovers and Spaniels and the rest was like candy to me. I couldn’t get enough; my teachers probably thought I had attention deficit disorder.
  4. The Muslim Brotherhood and the Salifist parties are a real force in the Egyptian society. No civil, liberal government can succeed, even after new elections, if the Islamists are forced to work underground as a foe and the country remains divided.
  5. The Muslim Brotherhood and the Salifist parties are a real force in the Egyptian society.
  6. The Muslim world just doesn’t believe that skin color is all that important. Obama may be half-black, but he’s still all-Western, according to them. It doesn’t matter whether you’re black, white or green – if you’re not a devotee of Muhammad, you don’t matter.

  12. The myths underlying our culture and underlying our common sense have not taught us to feel identical with the universe, but only parts of it, only in it, only confronting it – aliens.
  13. The name Muhammad is the most common name in the world. In all the countries around the world – Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Turkey, Syria, Lebanon – there are more Muhammads than anything else.

  14. The name of ‘reform’ simply covers what is latently a process of the theft of the national heritage.
  15. The name Zahra was to have been lman’s own name at birth, but a senior member of the family changed it to lman at the last minute.
  16. The names of Dingane and Bambata, Hintsa and Makana, Squngthi and Dalasile, Moshoeshoe and Sekhukhuni, were praised as the glory of the entire African nation. I hoped then that life might offer me the opportunity to serve my people and make my own humble contribution to their freedom struggle.
  17. The Nation of Islam’s main focus was teaching black pride and self-awareness. Why should we keep trying to force ourselves into white restaurants and schools when white people didn’t want us? Why not clean up our own neighborhoods and schools instead of trying to move out of them and into white people’s neighborhoods?

  24. The natural term of the affection of the human animal for its offspring is six years.
  25. The nature of a protective immune response to HIV is still unclear. Because in a very, very unique manner, unlike virtually any other microbe with which we’re familiar, the HIV virus has evolved in a way that the immune system finds it very difficult, if not impossible, to deal with the virus.
  26. The nature of fashion is family.
  27. The nature of music is mysterious and so much so that it generates strong emotions within us. It moves along passages that reach the most intimate areas of our psyche without being tried by prejudices or influences of any kind.
  28. The nature of the human mind is such that unless it is stimulated by images of things acting upon it from without, all remembrance of them passes easily away.

  46. The New Testament says nothing of Apostles who retired and took it easy.
  47. The New York Times editorial page is like a Ouija board that has only three answers, no matter what the question. The answers are: higher taxes, more restrictions on political speech and stricter gun control.
  48. ‘The New Yorker’ was really my first experience with serious editing. Previously, I’d more or less just had copyediting with a few suggestions – not much.
  49. ‘The Newsroom’ is phenomenally bad good TV. Sam Waterston and Jeff Daniels and Emily Mortimer are all terrific! So is the production, and the direction, and even the editing!
  50. The next best thing to playing and winning is playing and losing.
  51. The next few years are going to be horrendous in the UK. The last thing we need is a Somali pirate-style raid on the few wealth creators who still dare to navigate Britain’s gale-force waters.
  52. The next major explosion is going to be when genetics and computers come together. I’m talking about an organic computer – about biological substances that can function like a semiconductor.
  53. The next thing I am doing is moving back home to Minnesota and getting involved in politics. I’m looking at a run for Senate in 2008, but in the meantime I am focused on knitting together the progressive network in the upper Midwest.
  54. The next thing I knew, I was out of the service and making movies again. My first picture was called, GI Blues. I thought I was still in the army.
  55. The next time someone tells you we can trim the budget by cutting aid, I hope you will ask whether it will come at the cost of more people dying.
  56. The next time you hear me attacked as a socialist – like tomorrow – remember this: I don’t believe that government should take over the grocery store down the street or control the means of production. But I believe that the middle class and the working families who produce the wealth of America deserve a fair deal.
  57. The next war… may well bury Western civilization forever.
  58. The NFL is a performance-based business, so you should have to perform to earn some of your money. At the same time, I realize that my success isn’t just because of what I do out there.

  61. The nicest thing for me is sleep, then at least I can dream.
  62. ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’ is my number one biggest influence artistically in every way.
  63. The Nike Fuel Band is interesting – it measures your movements and how far you’ve walked and how hard you’ve worked that day. I prefer using when I travel. It’s a fun way to see how far I’ve walked – how many steps I’ve taken when I’m walking around different cities.
  64. The ninety and nine are with dreams, content but the hope of the world made new, is the hundredth man who is grimly bent on making those dreams come true.

  66. The Nobel Peace Prize opened up a door in my heart.
  67. The nominee of our party, which at this – is presumed to be Donald Trump – I think that’s the right team to support. That’s what I’ve always said I would.
  68. The nose of a mob is its imagination. By this, at any time, it can be quietly led.
  69. The notion of looking on at life has always been hateful to me. What am I if I am not a participant? In order to be, I must participate.
  70. The notion of the infinite variety of detail and the multiplicity of forms is a pleasing one; in complexity are the fringes of beauty, and in variety are generosity and exuberance.
  71. The notion that a contemporary woman must look mannish in order to be taken seriously as a seeker of power is frankly dismaying. This is America, not Saudi Arabia.
  72. The notion that before you even set out to go to Thailand, you say, ‘I’m not interested,’ or you’re unwilling to try things that people take so personally and are so proud of and so generous with, I don’t understand that, and I think it’s rude. You’re at Grandma’s house, you eat what Grandma serves you.
  73. The notion that employees and companies have a social contract with each other that goes beyond a paycheck has largely vanished in United States business.
  74. The novel succeeds on terms exclusive to literature. A good film succeeds on terms exclusive to the cinema. That’s why so many bad novels can become good movies, like ‘Jaws’ or ‘The Godfather.’
  75. The novel ‘World War Z’ is told from the perspectives of so many people – speaking to the narrator – that there’s no way a movie could capture all of them. Still, the idea of turning a zombie pandemic into a war story is fascinating and could have translated easily to film.
  76. The nuclear approach I’m involved in is called a traveling-wave reactor, which uses waste uranium for fuel. There’s a lot of things that have to go right for that dream to come true – many decades of building demo plants, proving the economics are right. But if it does, you could have cheaper energy with no CO2 emissions.
  77. The nuclear industry has this amazing record, even equipment from generations one and two. But nuclear mishaps tend to come in these big events – Chernobyl, Three Mile Island, and now Fukushima – so it’s more visible.
  78. The number of elements that have to go into a hit would break a computer down. the right season for that play, the right historical moment, the right tonality.
  79. The number one mistake is giving pets table scraps. I made the mistake thinking I was showing my dog love by giving her food and treats. You see a tiny 4 oz. piece of cheese, but for a Boston Terrier like mine, that’s like one and a half hamburgers. That’s unhealthy.
  80. The number one person who needs my books is me. I’m not some sort of disinterested guru who has worked life out and is handing things out to the poor people who might not have life worked out.
  81. The Obama administration has been curtailing press freedom – but that hasn’t ended the press’ drool-cup worship for their beloved president.
  82. The Obama administration has consistently refused to recognize Jerusalem as Israeli territory, let alone as the capital of Israel.
  83. The Obama representatives like Robert Gibbs attack people viciously, but people like me will not be silent and will answer them back.

  90. The obvious is that which is never seen until someone expresses it simply.
  91. The Occupy movement found places where people who were feeling that anger could come and share it – and that is, as we all know, extremely important in any political movement. The Occupy sites became a way you could gauge the levels of anger and discontent.
  92. The Occupy Wall Street protests are shining a national spotlight on the most powerful, dangerous and secretive economic and political force in America.
  93. The odds of me coming into the rocket business, not knowing anything about rockets, not having ever built anything, I mean, I would have to be insane if I thought the odds were in my favor.
  94. The Okavango Delta is an astonishing sight: the great Okavango River, rather than flow towards the sea, flows inland, into the sands of the Kalahari.

  98. The old days were the old days. And they were great days. But now is now.
  99. The Old Testament God is a person with body parts and passions. The Church of England God has neither body, parts nor passions, and is therefore not a person.
  100. The Old Testament is responsible for more atheism, agnosticism, disbelief – call it what you will – than any book ever written. It has emptied more churches than all the counter-attractions of cinema, motor-bicycle and golf course.
  101. The older I get, the more important the eternal becomes to me personally.
  102. The older I get, the more interest I have in writing other kinds of music.
  103. The older I get the more wisdom I find in the ancient rule of taking first things first. A process which often reduces the most complex human problem to a manageable proportion.
  104. The older I got, I started to realize more it’s not necessarily that any of us are inherently bad or good; you just kind of carve your own way, and you are your experiences and your surroundings and what you grow up in.
  105. The Olympic Games are highly commercialised. They purport to follow the traditions of an ancient athletics competition, but today it is the commercial aspect that is most apparent. I have seen how, through sport, cities and corporations compete against each other for financial gain.
  106. The Olympic gold was like going to a theater and seeing a movie that had the ending you expected. But you left the theater thinking, ‘You know, that was a good movie.’
  107. The once all-powerful ruler of Iraq was found in a hole, and now sits in a prison cell.

  115. The one knowing what is profitable, and not the man knowing many things, is wise.
  116. The one process now going on that will take millions of years to correct is the loss of genetic and species diversity by the destruction of natural habitats. This is the folly our descendants are least likely to forgive us.
  117. The one that can describe feelings best is the one without emotion.
  118. The one thing I couldn’t identify with was the blue cowboy outfit he put on.
  119. The one thing I have always felt about musical theatre is that it is, to an extraordinary degree, about construction.
  120. The one thing I think I’ve noticed about shows that are supposed to be funny on television is that they’ve sort of become routinized, so there’s an awful lot of mannerisms and joke lines that are sort of there to trigger laughter, rather than give actors a chance to play a moment.
  121. The one thing I want to leave my children is an honorable name.
  122. The one thing that I keep learning over and over again is that I don’t know nothing. I mean, that’s my life lesson.
  123. The one thing that matters is the effort.
  124. The one thing with writing stories about the rise of fascism is that if you wait long enough, you’ll almost certainly be proved right. Fascism is like a hydra – you can cut off its head in the Germany of the ’30s and ’40s, but it’ll still turn up on your back doorstep in a slightly altered guise.
  125. The ongoing conflict between us has caused heavy suffering to both peoples. The future can and must be different. Both our peoples are destined to live together side by side, on this small piece of land. This reality we cannot change.

  127. The only advantage of not being too good a housekeeper is that your guests are so pleased to feel how very much better they are.
  128. The only advantage of the CD is that you have a booklet that can tell a bit of a story, but the little covers are just boring. I love vinyl, and I have loads of it. It’s the same thing as digital photography versus film photography. It’s a quality thing.
  129. The only bipartisanship you ever see is when they finally sign a bill and everybody says, ‘Gee, isn’t that wonderful?’
  130. The only black battalion on Iwo Jima was a small munitions supply unit that came to the beach.
  131. The only concealed weapon is a man’s mind.
  132. The only concept or experience or core belief that I can attribute my other-ness to is that I just started out a weirdo and I stayed a weirdo. And it took me a long time to embrace my outsidership and see it as a strength rather than a weakness.
  133. The only definition by which America’s best days are behind it is on a purely relative basis.

  135. The only difference between the saint and the sinner is that every saint has a past, and every sinner has a future.

  149. The only place I’m recognized is at the mall, because that’s where the teens are.
  150. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws.
  151. The only pressure I feel is the pressure I put on myself to win.
  152. The only problem with subtlety is that it is too subtle.

  157. The only real progress lies in learning to be wrong all alone.
  158. The only real security is not in owning or possessing, not in demanding or expecting, not in hoping, even. Security in a relationship lies neither in looking back to what it was, nor forward to what it might be, but living in the present and accepting it as it is now.
  159. The only real valuable thing is intuition.
  160. The only really committed artist is he who, without refusing to take part in the combat, at least refuses to join the regular armies and remains a freelance.

  162. The only reason for time is so that everything doesn’t happen at once.
  163. The only reason I became the singer in the band is because I sang the best. It wasn’t out of some desire to be a star or be a famous singer. It’s not like I love interviews.
  164. The only reason I got into broadcasting was, I needed money to pay for my junior and senior years at college, and they hired me, those fools!

  172. The only thing I really recommend, if you’re starting out in stand-up is to not try to copy anybody else. You can be influenced by people.

  179. The only thing that can save the world is the reclaiming of the awareness of the world. That’s what poetry does.

  192. The only time I felt I was different was when one of my friends said, ‘I hate reading’ and I stared at her like, ‘What kind of an alien creature are you?!’ Because it was so incomprehensible to me that someone could dislike reading! That really started my desire to help other children love reading and writing.

  196. The only time you have too much fuel is when you are on fire.

  199. The only tyrant I accept in this world is the still voice within.
  200. The only way I could relax was when I was with my children.
  201. The only way I was going to be funny was if I was myself, and either you liked it, or you didn’t. Either you got on my train, or you didn’t. Freeing myself of this idea that I had to fit a certain mold was when I was able to be my funniest.
  202. The only way I’d be caught without makeup is if my radio fell in the bathtub while I was taking a bath and electrocuted me and I was in between makeup at home. I hope my husband would slap a little lipstick on me before he took me to the morgue.

  216. The only way to support a revolution is to make your own.
  217. The only way you can handle big kinds of questions is to simply state briefly what the truth was. What am I going to tell you about the Holocaust? Would you like three pages about it? I don’t think you would… I don’t think anything different than you think – it was horrible.
  218. The only way you get economic progress, real standards of living moving higher, is to have the savings of the society continuously invested in the cutting-edge technologies. And those technologies which are obsolescent get dropped out.

  224. The optimum frequency with which comedians should do a series is every year. I do one every three years. My audience is literally dying off.
  225. The ordinary man looking at a mountain is like an illiterate person confronted with a Greek manuscript.
  226. The original fairy tale was about the youngest sister going into a room in the castle and finding all the bodies of the wives that came before her – she is confronted with truth, thinking about how often we think we know people and we really don’t.
  227. The original idea before Mint was a life and goal planning system I called Carpe Viva. The idea was that all of life’s goals, from buying a house, getting an MBA, or learning Spanish could be quantified in both time and money.
  228. The orthodox believers in God are divided into two camps, one of which maintains that the existence of God is as demonstrable as any mathematical proposition, while the other asserts that his existence is not demonstrable to the intellect.
  229. The other day the President said, I know you’ve had some rough times, and I want to do something that will show the nation what faith that I have in you, in your maturity and sense of responsibility. He paused, then said, would you like a puppy?
  230. The other night I ate at a real nice family restaurant. Every table had an argument going.
  231. The other states look to New York for the progressive direction.
  232. The ouster of Jill Abramson as executive editor of ‘The New York Times’ sent shock waves through the media landscape. Reports that she was fired thanks in part to a soured relationship based on the ‘Times’ alleged sexist pay discrepancy only made those shock waves stronger.
  233. The outpouring of support from millions of people in the immediate aftermath of the earthquake in Haiti has been impressive.
  234. The outside perception and inside perception of Microsoft are so different. The view of Microsoft inside Microsoft is always kind of an underdog thing.
  235. The over-all point is that new technology will not necessarily replace old technology, but it will date it. By definition. Eventually, it will replace it. But it’s like people who had black-and-white TVs when color came out. They eventually decided whether or not the new technology was worth the investment.
  236. The overwhelming public sentiment in India was that no meaningful dialogue can be held with Pakistan until it abandons the use of terrorism as an instrument of its foreign policy.
  237. The owners of a coffeehouse would like to run an “afternoon espresso” promotion to increase sales on weekdays. Which AdWords feature would be most effective for preventing their search ads from appearing at night and on weekends?
  238. The pace of progress on Mars depends upon the pace of progress of SpaceX.
  239. The pacifist is as surely a traitor to his country and to humanity as is the most brutal wrongdoer.
  240. The pact we have with Japan is interesting. Because if somebody attacks us, Japan does not have to help. If somebody attacks Japan, we have to help Japan.
  241. The pain of parting is nothing to the joy of meeting again.
  242. The painter… does not fit the paints to the world. He most certainly does not fit the world to himself. He fits himself to the paint. The self is the servant who bears the paintbox and its inherited contents.
  243. The painter, sculptor, writer, and musician are protected by law. So are inventors. But the chef has absolutely no redress for plagiarism on his work; on the contrary, the more the latter is liked and appreciated, the more will people clamour for his recipes.
  244. The palace is not safe when the cottage is not happy.
  245. The Palestinians have arrived at the conclusion that nothing can be achieved using terror.
  246. The Palestinians should have understood by now that what they haven’t gotten today they won’t be given tomorrow.
  247. The paperback is very interesting but I find it will never replace the hardcover book – it makes a very poor doorstop.
  248. The paradox of being in an industry where other people are usually the gatekeepers: publishers, editors – there are a lot of barriers to having control over your career. But coming out of hip-hop, the mindset was always to create your own.
  249. The Paralympic Games is about transforming our perception of the world.
  250. The part of capitalism that doesn’t work for me is when capitalists make decisions in the way that Adam Smith suggested, which is that as long as you do everything in the interest of the investor, you’re going to actually make the best decisions for all other stakeholders. I don’t happen to agree with that.
  251. The part of uranium that’s fissile – when you hit it with a neutron, it splits in two – is about 0.7%. The reactors we have today are burning that 0.7%.
  252. The partnership between the United States and Egypt is crucial to both countries, and it can’t be predicated on political manipulation and threats of withholding aid.
  253. The party of swindlers and thieves is putting forward its chief swindler and its chief thief for the presidency. We must vote against him, struggle against him.
  254. The past cannot be cured.
  255. The past is a ghost, the future a dream, and all we ever have is now.
  256. The past is prophetic in that it asserts loudly that wars are poor chisels for carving out peaceful tomorrows.
  257. The past, like the future, is indefinite and exists only as a spectrum of possibilities.
  258. The paternalism of the medical industry is insane.
  259. The path to conversion on mobile is not the same as on desktop or tablet due to ALL of the following EXCEPT:
  260. The path to the CEO’s office should not be through the CFO’s office, and it should not be through the marketing department. It needs to be through engineering and design.
  261. The path we have chosen for the present is full of hazards, as all paths are. The cost of freedom is always high, but Americans have always paid it. And one path we shall never choose, and that is the path of surrender, or submission.
  262. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is the major achievement of President Obama’s first term.
  263. The pay is good and I can walk to work.
  264. The PC has improved the world in just about every area you can think of. Amazing developments in communications, collaboration and efficiencies. New kinds of entertainment and social media. Access to information and the ability to give a voice people who would never have been heard.
  265. The pen and the written word hold a great deal of power.
  266. The penalty for getting mugged in an American city and losing your ID is that you can’t fly home.

  272. The people are the government, administering it by their agents; they are the government, the sovereign power.
  273. The people have given me their support; they have given me their trust and confidence. My colleagues have suffered a lot in order to give me support. I do not look upon my life as a sacrifice at all.
  274. The people in East Germany have lived through so many changes in the last 15 years like never before in the country, and they did this often with great enthusiasm. But in the West we also have a high degree of transformations.

  279. The people of Egypt are an intelligent people with a glorious history who left their mark on civilization.
  280. The people of England are the most enthusiastic in the world.
  281. The people of the world genuinely want peace. Some day the leaders of the world are going to have to give in and give it to them.

  287. The people who abandon Jihad fall a victim to humility and degradation.
  288. The people who are doing the work are the moving force behind the Macintosh. My job is to create a space for them, to clear out the rest of the organization and keep it at bay.
  289. The people who believe themselves to be on the left, and who defend the agents of Islam in the name of tolerance and culture, are being rightwing. Not just rightwing. Extreme rightwing. I don’t understand how you can be so upset about the Christian right and just ignore the Islamic right. I’m talking about equality.
  290. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want and if they can’t find them, make them.

  296. The perfect lie is one that can even deceive the liar.

  299. The person we believe ourselves to be will always act in a manner consistent with our self-image.
  300. The person who goes farthest is generally the one who is willing to do and dare. The sure-thing boat never gets far from shore.
  301. The person who grieves suffers his passion to grow upon him; he indulges it, he loves it; but this never happens in the case of actual pain, which no man ever willingly endured for any considerable time.
  302. The person who inspired me the most was a friend of mine, Anita Roddick. I know that Anita wasn’t known to be an ardent feminist, but she truly was.
  303. The person who knows HOW will always have a job. The person who knows WHY will always be his boss.
  304. The person who knows one thing and does it better than anyone else, even if it only be the art of raising lentils, receives the crown he merits. If he raises all his energy to that end, he is a benefactor of mankind and its rewarded as such.

  306. The person you consider ignorant and insignificant is the one who came from God, that he might learn bliss from grief and knowledge from gloom.

  308. The personal life deeply lived always expands into truths beyond itself.
  309. The pervasiveness of guns in our society is destroying America.
  310. The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.
  311. ‘The Phantom of the Opera’ is about love. It’s as simple as that.
  312. ‘The Phantom of the Opera’ is the biggest thing I’ve ever done, bigger even than ‘Cats’ which, in itself, I never thought we’d top.
  313. The pharma industry is one of the few industries that comes up every year and brags about how much worse they got – like, now it costs $2 billion to make a drug, and it was a billion 5 years ago.
  314. The philosophy I love is very selective. It is really just the bit that is involved in a search for wisdom, and this means a short roll call of names; Socrates, Marcus Aurelius, Seneca, Epicurus, Montaigne, Schopenhauer, Nietzsche.
  315. The philosophy of the school room in one generation will be the philosophy of government in the next.
  316. The photographers are always around. Wherever I go, they start clicking incessantly. I am always like, ‘At least give me a heads-up, as, many times, I look so disheveled. What will people think?’
  317. The phrase ‘private option’ itself has become politically toxic.
  318. The physical world, including our bodies, is a response of the observer. We create our bodies as we create the experience of our world.

  320. The pictures of my family were designed to be on a family wall, they were supposed to be together. It was supposed to copy my mother’s wall in her house.
  321. The pilot looked at his cues of attitude and speed and orientation and so on and responded as he would from the same cues in an airplane, but there was no way it flew the same. The simulators had showed us that.

  323. The place of justice is a hallowed place.
  324. The place of the father in the modern suburban family is a very small one, particularly if he plays golf.
  325. The Planck satellite may detect the imprint of the gravitational waves predicted by inflation. This would be quantum gravity written across the sky.
  326. The planet is ill, everyone knows that. But I need to be optimistic, otherwise I would just be adding to the negativity. So every night I come on Madrid TV and read a piece of good news.
  327. The planet’s biggest problems have to do with sustainability, environmental decline, global poverty, disease, conflict and so forth. Really, they’re all interconnected – it’s one big problem, which is that the way we’re doing things can’t go on.
  328. The planet’s resources are rare; we must consume more ethically and equitably.
  329. The planter, the farmer, the mechanic, and the laborer… form the great body of the people of the United States, they are the bone and sinew of the country men who love liberty and desire nothing but equal rights and equal laws.
  330. The pleasure from acting comes from having great writing to work with. If it’s well written and the character is interesting, then, as an actor, that’s the raw material I need.
  331. The pleasure of work is open to anyone who can develop some specialised skill, provided that he can get satisfaction from the exercise of his skill without demanding universal applause.
  332. The plot of my ‘Phantom’ is pretty much mine. It’s based on the Gaston Leroux book – I’ve taken a lot of liberties with it.
  333. The plural of anecdote is not data.
  334. The poet, being an imitator like a painter or any other artist, must of necessity imitate one of three objects – things as they were or are, things as they are said or thought to be, or things as they ought to be. The vehicle of expression is language – either current terms or, it may be, rare words or metaphors.
  335. The poet exposes himself to the risk. All that has been said about poetry, all that he has learned about poetry, is only a partial assurance.
  336. The poet is someone, I think, who’s interested in registering experience immediately or giving you the sense of immediacy and directness.
  337. The poetry you read has been written for you, each of you – black, white, Hispanic, man, woman, gay, straight.
  338. The point about a great story is that it’s got a beginning, a middle and end.
  339. The point is that there is tremendous hypocrisy among the Christian right. And I think that Christian voters should start looking at global warming and extreme poverty as a religious issue that speaks to the culture of life.

  341. The point of my work is to make it clear that all youth can make ‘big miracles’ happen.

  346. The ‘Police Academy’ stuff was all hyper-slapsticky.
  347. The police need to come down to street level.
  348. The Polish freedom movement of 1968 lost its confrontation with police violence; the Prague Spring was crushed by the armies of five Warsaw Pact members. But in both countries, 1968 gave birth to a new political consciousness.

  351. The Pope, I hope, can only be scared by God.
  352. The popular idea that a child forgets easily is not an accurate one. Many people go right through life in the grip of an idea which has been impressed on them in very tender years.

  355. The possession of anything begins in the mind.

  362. The powder is mixed with water and tastes exactly like powder mixed with water.
  363. The power for creating a better future is contained in the present moment: You create a good future by creating a good present.
  364. The power of a handwritten letter is greater than ever. It’s personal and deliberate and means more than an e-mail or text ever will. It has a unique scent. It requires deciphering. But, most important, it’s flawed.
  365. The power of a person derives not from the office he occupies but from a clear sense of direction and aspiration and from a willingness to struggle for his ways and beliefs.
  366. The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who have not got it.

  376. The present letter is a very long one, simply because I had no leisure to make it shorter.
  377. The presidency is more than a popularity contest.
  378. The President can pardon us again… and again and again, but… picketing will continue, and sooner or later, he will have to do something about it.
  379. The President is going to benefit from me reporting directly to him when I arrive.
  380. The President never intends to get into any kind of war situation. He gets carried away by events.
  381. The President’s post should not be politicised. Once a president is elected, he is above politics.
  382. The press is still investing itself, it seems to me, in a sort of cynicism. It comes out better for them if they can predict hard times, bogging down, sniping, attrition.
  383. The press should not get special privileges – if they drive recklessly or put people in danger, they should be subject to every reckless driving and endangerment law on the books – but they should also not be singled out for special punishment.
  384. The press, the machine, the railway, the telegraph are premises whose thousand-year conclusion no one has yet dared to draw.

  396. The probability that we may fail in the struggle ought not to deter us from the support of a cause we believe to be just.
  397. The problem in defense is how far you can go without destroying from within what you are trying to defend from without.
  398. The problem… is emblematic of what hasn’t changed during the equal opportunity revolution of the last 20 years. Doors opened; opportunities evolved. Law, institutions, corporations moved forward. But many minds did not.
  399. The problem is I am both a procrastinator and a power junkie, so I am very frustrating to work with.
  400. The problem is not that people are taxed too little, the problem is that government spends too much.
  401. The problem is, of course, that these interest groups are all asking for changes, but their enthusiasm for change rapidly disappears when it affects the core of their own interests.
  402. The problem is that Abu Mazen signed an agreement with the Hamas and the Islamic Jihad.
  403. The problem is that at a lot of big companies, process becomes a substitute for thinking. You’re encouraged to behave like a little gear in a complex machine. Frankly, it allows you to keep people who aren’t that smart, who aren’t that creative.
  404. The problem is that those of us who were born into Islam and who don’t want to live according to scripture – we don’t have what the Jews have, which is a rabbinical tradition that allows you to ask questions. We also don’t have the church tradition that the Christians have.
  405. The problem is, when you’re working with orchestras, you only get the orchestra for about two hours before the performance to pull it all together, and that doesn’t sound like a real collaboration.
  406. The problem is you cannot have free global trade with highly restrictive, regulated domestic markets.
  407. The problem of sexism is getting better, but I don’t know if it’s getting better fast enough. We see more roles for women that don’t entirely revolve around the way in which they function in a man’s life, but typically those women are almost always white, and even then, there are only a few of them.
  408. The problem was to sustain at any cost the feeling you had in the theater that you were watching a real person, yes, but an intense condensation of his experience, not simply a realistic series of episodes.
  409. The problem with airports is that we go there when we need to catch a plane – and because it’s so difficult to find the way to the gate, we tend not to look around at our surroundings.
  410. The problem with couture is not designers; it’s what happens when the couturier will no longer be there.
  411. The problem with living in a fast-food nation is that we expect food to be cheap.
  412. The problem with me, as far as getting married and having a family, is that my comedy is so important to me. So I don’t know if I’ll ever be as good a dad as my dad.
  413. The problem with me is, I guess, the way I express myself, you have to be with me 50 years before you can get a sense of what I’m talking about.
  414. The problem with my mother is that she didn’t go to the doctor. And I think by the time she started to show symptoms that something might not be right, and finally went to the doctor, she was so close to her death that she couldn’t get the care she had needed. Her big issue was not going to the doctor.
  415. The problem with society is that one man can achieve more than a thousand others.
  416. The problem with the screenplay is that it’s not literature, and it’s not a film. It’s a very weird, technical kind of blueprint that will be absolutely transformed into something else that is not that, you know? Honestly, a screenplay is no literature.
  417. The problem with writing a book in verse is, to be successful, it has to sound like you knocked it off on a rainy Friday afternoon. It has to sound easy. When you can do it, it helps tremendously because it’s a thing that forces kids to read on. You have this unconsummated feeling if you stop.
  418. The problems of the world cannot possibly be solved by skeptics or cynics whose horizons are limited by the obvious realities. We need men who can dream of things that never were.
  419. The problems of victory are more agreeable than those of defeat, but they are no less difficult.
  420. The problems with kids having short attention spans is driven by entertainment, reset buttons on games, games having to do with getting somewhere and heads blowing up. Everything is ‘cut to the chase, cut to the chase.’
  421. The process of making natural history films is to try to prevent the animal knowing you are there, so you get glimpses of a non-human world, and that is a transporting thing.
  422. The process of scientific discovery is, in effect, a continual flight from wonder.
  423. The processes of teaching the child that everything cannot be as he wills it are apt to be painful both to him and to his teacher.
  424. The professed function of the nuclear weapons on each side is to prevent the other side from using their nuclear weapons. If that’s all it is, then we’ve gotta as: how many nuclear weapons do you need to do that?

  426. The progress of science is strewn, like an ancient desert trail, with the bleached skeleton of discarded theories which once seemed to possess eternal life.

  428. The prominence given to our nation as a rainbow country has its genesis and credence in our ‘Calaloo culture’ of which our East Indian brothers and sisters have played a principal part.

  433. The proper study of mankind is books.
  434. The proper study of Mankind is Man.
  435. The properties of people and the properties of character have almost nothing to do with each other. They really don’t. I know it seems like they do because we look alike, but people don’t speak in dialogue. Their lives don’t unfold in a series of scenes that form a narrative arc.
  436. The proportion of ingredients is important, but the final result is also a matter of how you put them together. Equilibrium is key.
  437. The prosecution wants to make sure the process by which the evidence was obtained is not truthfully presented, because, as often as not, that process will raise questions.
  438. The prospect of dating someone in her twenties becomes less appealing as you get older. At some point in your life, your tolerance level goes down and you realize that, with someone much younger, there’s nothing really to talk about.
  439. The protean nature of the computer is such that it can act like a machine or like a language to be shaped and exploited.
  440. The protestor I think will speak up for the world’s poorest.
  441. The public doesn’t mind people living together without being married, providing they don’t overdo it.

  443. The Public is merely a multiplied ‘me.’
  444. The public is the only critic whose opinion is worth anything at all.
  445. The public is wonderfully tolerant. It forgives everything except genius.
  446. The ‘public’ scares me, but people I trust.
  447. The public/private partnerships are taking various forms in India. It is individuals who are socially oriented are setting up schools. They’re setting up colleges. They’re setting up universities. They’re setting up primary-education schools in the villages, particularly the villages their original families came from.
  448. The publishing industry stopped having new ideas out of respect for the untimely death of Ernest Hemingway in 1961 and has been doing everything the same way ever since.
  449. The publishing scene in India is evolving rapidly, and the key challenge is to keep reinventing oneself so that one does not become formulaic. Sometimes it is safer to deal with the consequences of failure than the fruits of success. Remaining on one’s toes is critical, and often one finds that success makes one complacent.
  450. The Pulitzer is more useful than meaningful.
  451. The punctuation of anniversaries is terrible, like the closing of doors, one after another between you and what you want to hold on to.
  452. The punishment of shaving a woman’s head had biblical origins. In Europe, the practice dated back to the Dark Ages with the Visigoths.
  453. The purpose is clear. It is safety with solvency. The country is entitled to both.
  454. The purpose of a developer or authentication token is to track:
  455. The purpose of a politician is to be a leader. A politician has to lead. Otherwise he’s just a follower.
  456. The purpose of education is to make good human beings with skill and expertise… Enlightened human beings can be created by teachers.
  457. The purpose of getting power is to be able to give it away.
  458. The purpose of human life is to serve, and to show compassion and the will to help others.
  459. The purpose of morality is to teach you, not to suffer and die, but to enjoy yourself and live.
  460. The purpose of our lives is to be happy.
  461. The purposes of the United States should not be doubted. The Security Council resolutions will be enforced – the just demands of peace and security will be met – or action will be unavoidable. And a regime that has lost its legitimacy will also lose its power.
  462. The pursuit of science leads only to the insoluble.
  463. The pursuit of truth and beauty is a sphere of activity in which we are permitted to remain children all our lives.
  464. The pursuit of truth does not permit violence on one’s opponent.
  465. ‘The Pushcart War’ is presented as a history of a conflict that has not yet taken place; in each edition of the book, the date on which the hostilities commenced is nudged forward.
  466. The Q I loathe and despise, the Q every single writer I know loathes and despises, is this one: ‘Where,’ the reader asks, ‘do you get your ideas?’ It’s a simple question, and my usual response is a kind of helpless, ‘I don’t know.’
  467. The quality, not the longevity, of one’s life is what is important.
  468. The quality of life is more important than life itself.
  469. The quality of light by which we scrutinize our lives has direct bearing upon the product which we live, and upon the changes which we hope to bring about through those lives.
  470. The quality of moral behavior varies in inverse ratio to the number of human beings involved.
  471. The quality of research in the U.S. is absolutely the best.
  472. The quarrels and divisions about religion were evils unknown to the heathen. The reason was because the religion of the heathen consisted rather in rites and ceremonies than in any constant belief.
  473. The question for Dropbox is whether, when they run out of private sources for funding, they will be able to maintain that valuation when they go to public sources for funding and their valuation is set on the public markets.
  474. The question is, are we happy to suppose that our grandchildren may never be able to see an elephant except in a picture book?
  475. The question is not whether we are able to change but whether we are changing fast enough.
  476. The question is not whether we will be extremists, but what kind of extremists we will be… The nation and the world are in dire need of creative extremists.
  477. The question isn’t who is going to let me; it’s who is going to stop me.
  478. The question of boundaries is a major question of the Jewish people because the Jews are the great experts of crossing boundaries. They have a sense of identity inside themselves that doesn’t permit them to cross boundaries with other people.
  479. The questioning is a stupid formality aimed exclusively at preventing us from speaking at the demonstration.
  480. The questions to ask are, why was the decathlon so popular before, and what happened to make it fade? I notice a lot of things in general tend to follow that up-and-down trend.
  481. The quietly pacifist peaceful always die to make room for men who shout.
  482. The radiation left over from the Big Bang is the same as that in your microwave oven but very much less powerful. It would heat your pizza only to minus 271.3*C – not much good for defrosting the pizza, let alone cooking it.
  483. The radio makes hideous sounds.
  484. The radio was an improvement on the telegraph but it didn’t have the same exponential, transformative effect.
  485. The rarest quality in an epitaph is truth.
  486. The rate of visitors converting on a landing page is affected by the CTA.
  487. The rating agencies historically actually did a pretty good job rating regular bonds.
  488. The reach of Coke and McDonald’s is undeniable, and I’m thrilled these iconic brands are joining forces to inspire local communities through messages of peace and motivation in unique ways. It’s an added bonus that they are using the lyrics to ‘Rise Up’ as a part of those messages.
  489. The reactionary is always willing to take a progressive attitude on any issue that is dead.
  490. The real and effectual discipline which is exercised over a workman is that of his customers. It is the fear of losing their employment which restrains his frauds and corrects his negligence.
  491. The real and lasting victories are those of peace, and not of war.
  492. The real community of man is the community of those who seek the truth, of the potential knowers.
  493. The real evolution is to learn something new every day – it’s very important for chefs to share what they have discovered.
  494. The real excitement is collaborating with computer scientists and neuroscientists and starting to understand in detail how children learn so much so quickly.
  495. The real goal of AI is to understand and build devices that can perceive, reason, act, and learn at least as well as we can.
  496. The real hate crime these days is the Orwellian intimidation wielded by the Left against those that don’t think the way they do. It’s worse than waterboarding.
  497. The real key is to live in an environment where the mind feels free to choose the right thing instead of being compelled by habit and inertia to choose the wrong thing.
  498. The real lover is the man who can thrill you just by touching your head or smiling into your eyes – or just by staring into space.
  499. The real ornament of woman is her character, her purity.
  500. The real passion of the twentieth century is servitude.
  501. The real problem is not why some pious, humble, believing people suffer, but why some do not.
  502. The real problem with Obamacare has little to do with the number of people signing up, and a lot to do with the restrictions on insurance companies and reimbursement rates to doctors.
  503. The real romantics are the boring ones – they let another heart bore a hole deep into theirs.
  504. The real romantics imagine greying and sagging and wrinkling as the deepening of something sacred.
  505. The real scientist is ready to bear privation and, if need be, starvation rather than let anyone dictate to him which direction his work must take.
  506. The real tragedy of the poor is the poverty of their aspirations.
  507. The real truths of life are never entirely new to you or to anybody because there is a level deep down within you where you already know all the things, all those spiritual truths that you read or hear, and then recognize them. I say ‘recognize’ because you’re not… it’s not new.
  508. ‘The Real World’ is the most predictable arc ever. They get on the show, they’re all excited, we’re gonna be best friends, then people start drinking and get hammered, and say stupid stuff, and that’s pretty much it.
  509. The reality is gas prices should be much more expensive then they are because we’re not incorporating the true damage to the environment and the hidden costs of mining oil and transporting it to the U.S. Whenever you have an unpriced externality, you have a bit of a market failure, to the degree that eternality remains unpriced.
  510. The reality is that in a tech environment that is 90 percent to 100 percent male, it’s not super-encouraging for females to be successful. It’s just a lot of things that contribute to that: things that people do or things that people say that they may not realize have unintended consequences.
  511. The reality is that international institutions like the UN can only be as effective as its members allow it to be.
  512. The reality is that the only way change comes is when you lead by example.
  513. The reality is that we communicate with every part of our being, and there are times when we must use it all. When someone needs us, he or she needs all of us. There’s no text that can replace a loving touch when someone we love is hurting.
  514. The reality is the world is a really, really big place, and there’s a lot of people running around with a lot on their mind. And you really have to figure out how to build a company that can put on a message that can actually reach people and have an impact globally.
  515. The reality of the writer’s world is that you set yourself up for disappointment with every success that you deliver because with every success you raise your readers’ expectations.
  516. The reality of the writer’s world is that you set yourself up for future disappointment with every success that you deliver because you end up raising your audience’s expectations.
  517. The really amazing part, to me, was when Florida made it into the Final Four, the Democrats didn’t demand a recount.
  518. The really clever people now want to be lawyers or journalists.
  519. The really great novel tends to be the exact negative of its author’s life.
  520. The really simple approach to photography is a great balance to making the films.
  521. The reason for this project comes from my childhood, that is clear to me. I did not have any toys. So, I played in the bricks of ruined buildings around me and with which I built houses.
  522. The reason I do what I do is because I was influenced by Steve Martin, by Woody Allen, by Bob Newhart, by Carol Burnett, by Lucille Ball.
  523. The reason I hate publicists is because I think if we got rid of them everything would be on equal footing.
  524. The reason I never give up hope is because everything is so basically hopeless.
  525. The reason I talk to myself is that I’m the only one whose answers I accept.
  526. The reason I was able to grow my business was that every day, after producing 30 minutes of wine television, I spent 15 hours a day replying to every single person’s e-mail and every single person’s Twitter @ reply.
  527. The reason I wrote political satire was because I thought it – politics – was important… that public policy was important. Then I transitioned into books, then into radio.
  528. The reason men oppose progress is not that they hate progress, but that they love inertia.
  529. The reason that Apple is able to create products like the iPad is because we’ve always tried to be at the intersection of technology and the liberal arts.
  530. The reason that some motion-capture films don’t work is if the scripts are not good, and the characters aren’t engaging, then you don’t believe in the journey, and you’re not connected to it. It’s not the technology’s fault.
  531. The reason that ‘Stalingrad’ took off was because it emphasized the influence of history on the individual.
  532. The reason the Romans built their great paved highways was because they had such inconvenient footwear.
  533. The reason we have poverty is that we have no imagination. There are a great many people accumulating what they think is vast wealth, but it’s only money… they don’t know how to enjoy it, because they have no imagination.
  534. The reason we love our parents is because they loved us first. Every single company should take this advice.
  535. The reason we should do a carbon tax is because it’s the right thing to do. It’s economics 101, elementary stuff.
  536. The reason we want to go on and on is because we live in an impoverished present.
  537. The reason we wouldn’t make a seven-inch tablet isn’t because we don’t want to hit a price point, it’s because we don’t think you can make a great tablet with a seven-inch screen.
  538. The reason why men do not obey us, is because they see the mud at the bottom of our eye.
  539. The reason why parents mistreat their children has less to do with character and temperament than with the fact that they were mistreated themselves and were not permitted to defend themselves.
  540. The reason why the stone is red is its iron content, which is also why our blood is red.
  541. The reason why the world lacks unity, and lies broken and in heaps, is, because man is disunited with himself.
  542. The reason why you know more funny dudes than funny chicks is that dudes are funnier than chicks. If my daughter has a mediocre sense of humor, I’m just gonna tell her, ‘Be a staff writer for a sitcom. Because they’ll have to hire you, they can’t really fire you, and you don’t have to produce that much. It’ll be awesome.’
  543. The recipe for perpetual ignorance is: Be satisfied with your opinions and content with your knowledge.
  544. The recycling in my house was imposed by my kids.
  545. ‘The Red’ delivers intense action, leavened by a genuinely sympathetic portrait of soldiers caught up in battles they never chose.
  546. ‘The Red’ is the first book in a trilogy that gained a big following as a self-published e-book, and is now out in paper from Saga. It introduces us to reluctant hero Shelley, a former anti-war activist who chooses to join the military rather than serve jail time after being arrested at a protest.
  547. The regional parties have emerged as a strong force, and they, too, deserve a place in national politics.
  548. The regrets in the theatre have always been the shows that you know ought to have worked but for one reason or another haven’t.
  549. The relationship between critic and writer is similar to the one between the pigeon and the statue.
  550. The relationship between the public and the artist is complex and difficult to explain. There is a fine line between using this critical energy creatively and pandering to it.
  551. The relationship of the toastmaster to speaker should be the same as that of the fan to the fan dancer. It should call attention to the subject without making any particular effort to cover it.
  552. The relationship to one’s fellow man is the relationship of prayer, the relationship to oneself is the relationship of striving; it is from prayer that one draws the strength for one’s striving.
  553. The relationship with the words someone uses is more intimate and integrated than just a quick read and a blurb can ever be. This intimacy – the words on the page being sent back and forth from engaged editor to open author – is unique in my experience.
  554. The release of atomic energy has not created a new problem. It has merely made more urgent the necessity of solving an existing one.
  555. The relentless pursuit of being different is very French.
  556. The religious idea of God cannot do full duty for the metaphysical infinity.
  557. The religious superstitions of women perpetuate their bondage more than all other adverse influences.
  558. The remarkable thing about ‘Avatar’ is the degree to which the technology is integral to the story. It is important to show Pandora and its Na’Vi natives in 3-D because ‘Avatar’ is fundamentally about the moral necessity of seeing other beings fully.
  559. The remarkable thing is, we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day.
  560. The remedy is worse than the disease.
  561. The Renaissance is studded by the names of the artists and architects, with their creations recorded as great historical events.
  562. The render tree contains:
  563. The reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated.
  564. The republic I fell in love with, the republic I risked my life to defend, the values I hold dear, the integrity that we all share – these do not know prejudice and they do not accept partiality.
  565. The Republican agenda is a radical vision in which Medicaid is slashed to the bone – in which we start to balance the budget on the backs of, literally, our most vulnerable citizens.
  566. The republican is the only form of government which is not eternally at open or secret war with the rights of mankind.
  567. The Republicans in the House and Senate took the district that I firmly represent, 22 in south Florida, from a D plus one to a D plus five almost a D plus six district, which means you are given a five to six percent registration advantage to Democrats. They drew in more Democrats into the district I represent.
  568. The reserve of modern assertions is sometimes pushed to extremes, in which the fear of being contradicted leads the writer to strip himself of almost all sense and meaning.
  569. The resignation of Attorney General Eric Holder is met with both pride and disappointment by the Civil Rights community. We are proud that he has been the best Attorney General on Civil Rights in U.S. history and disappointed because he leaves at a critical time when we need his continued diligence most.
  570. The resistance that you fight physically in the gym and the resistance that you fight in life can only build a strong character.
  571. The resolve of our great nation is being tested. But make no mistake, we will show the world that we will pass the test.
  572. The responsibility of philanthropy rests with us. The wealthier we are, the more powerful we get. We cannot put the entire onus on the government.
  573. The restaurant business is something that you have to treat like a baby. You have to constantly be there. You can’t trust it to anybody else, because no one’s going to love it like you do.
  574. The restaurants express the spirit of the chef, the spirit of the city, the country.
  575. The results of any traumatic experience, such as abuse, can only be resolved by experiencing, articulating, and judging every facet of the original experience within a process of careful therapeutic disclosure.
  576. The revealed Word awakened me, but it was the preached Word that saved me, and I must ever attach peculiar value to the hearing of the truth, for by it I received the joy and peace in which my soul delights.
  577. The revelation of thought takes men out of servitude into freedom.
  578. The revenues of Cuban state-run companies are used exclusively for the benefit of the people, to whom they belong.
  579. The Revlon Run/Walk effort to focus on women’s cancer has my wholehearted support and gratitude.
  580. The Revolution did not assume a socialist nature because of support from the U.S.S.R.; it was the other way around: support from the U.S.S.R. was produced by the socialist nature of the Cuban Revolution. To such a degree, that when the U.S.S.R. disappears, Cuba keeps on being socialist.
  581. The revolution is a dictatorship of the exploited against the exploiters.
  582. The revolutionary breakthrough will come with rockets that are fully and rapidly reusable. We will never conquer Mars unless we do that. It’ll be too expensive. The American colonies would never have been pioneered if the ships that crossed the ocean hadn’t been reusable.
  583. The reward of a thing well done is having done it.
  584. The right honourable gentleman caught the Whigs bathing, and walked away with their clothes. He has left them in the full enjoyment of their liberal positions, and he is himself a strict conservative of their garments.
  585. The Right likes to think that intellectuals and academics like Allan Bloom and Dinesh D’Souza spurred the explosive growth of movement conservatism in the 1980s and 1990s, when it was actually mostly Rush Limbaugh.
  586. The right of the Jewish people to the Land of Israel does not mean disregarding the rights of others in the land.
  587. The right thing to do never requires any subterfuge, it is always simple and direct.
  588. The right wing always mobilizes around constitutional amendments: the right to bear arms, school prayer.
  589. The right wing has had a radio apparatus for years and years, so they’ve had minor leagues – they’ve had local rightwing guys who’ve become national rightwing guys, and who build slowly, and that’s how it goes. We haven’t had that. It isn’t like we have a farm team.
  590. The right wing has monopolized the AM radio airwaves.
  591. The right wing is appealing to a shrinking, shrinking demographic of angry white people who blame their predicament in life on the fact that there are immigrants coming into the country; it’s pretty ludicrous.
  592. The right word may be effective, but no word was ever as effective as a rightly timed pause.
  593. The riskiest thing I have done in my fifties is to do a Polish accent for a new film. I had a great time working on it and two wonderful people to guide me. A dialect coach that I have known for thirty years and a Polish actor.
  594. The Ritz in London has an old-fashioned charm, with waiters wearing tails and white gloves. The dining room is exquisite, with immaculate service and ornate details.
  595. The road is not a problem.
  596. The road to perdition has ever been accompanied by lip service to an ideal.
  597. The road to recovery will not always be easy, but I will take it one day at a time, focusing on the moments I’ve dreamed about for so long.
  598. The road to success is always under construction.
  599. The road to the sacred leads through the secular.
  600. The roaring thunder of the law and the fear of the terror of judgment are both used to bring us to Christ, but the final victory culminating in our salvation is won through God’s loving-kindness.
  601. The robbed that smiles, steals something from the thief.
  602. The rocket had worked perfectly, and all I had to do was survive the reentry forces. You do it all, in a flight like that, in a rather short period of time, just 16 minutes as a matter of fact.
  603. The role and importance of females in companies can make a big difference.
  604. The role of a writer is not to say what we all can say, but what we are unable to say.
  605. The role of the intellectual cannot be to excuse the violence of one side and condemn that of the other.
  606. The Roman Catholic Church, had it captured me, as it nearly did, would have sent me on some mission of danger and sacrifice and utilised me as a martyr; the Church established by law transformed me into an unbeliever and an antagonist.
  607. The Romans thought of themselves as the chosen people, yet they built the greatest army on Earth by recruiting warriors from any background.
  608. The romantic person instinctively sees marriage in terms of emotions, but what a couple actually gets up to together over a lifetime has much more in common with the workings of a small business. They must draw up work rosters, clean, chauffeur, cook, fix, throw away, mind, hire, fire, reconcile, and budget.
  609. The room has to be comfortable; the house has to look habitable.
  610. The root of all superstition is that men observe when a thing hits, but not when it misses.
  611. The roots of all goodness lie in the soil of appreciation for goodness.
  612. The roots of education are bitter, but the fruit is sweet.
  613. The roots of the word ‘anarchy’ are ‘an archos,’ ‘no leaders,’ which is not really about the kind of chaos that most people imagine when the word ‘anarchy’ is mentioned. I think that anarchy is, to the contrary, about taking personal responsibility for yourself.
  614. The Royal Family are not like you and me. They live in houses so big that you can walk round all day and never need to meet your spouse. The Queen and Prince Philip have never shared a bedroom in their lives. They don’t even have breakfast together.
  615. The royal road to a man’s heart is to talk to him about the things he treasures most.
  616. The rudiment of verse may, possibly, be found in the spondee.
  617. The rule is perfect: in all matters of opinion our adversaries are insane.
  618. The rules are all in a sixty-four-page pamphlet by Aristotle called ‘Poetics.’ It was written almost three thousand years ago, but I promise you, if something is wrong with what you’re writing, you’ve probably broken one of Aristotle’s rules.
  619. The rules have changed. True power is held by the person who possesses the largest bookshelf, not gun cabinet or wallet.
  620. The rules of drama are very much separate from the properties of life. I think that’s especially true of Shakespeare.
  621. The rules of morality are not the conclusion of our reason.
  622. The ruling passion, be it what it will. The ruling passion conquers reason still.
  623. The rumours of the demise of the U.S. manufacturing industry are greatly exaggerated.
  624. The run’s the business end of a triathlon: it’s where you win or lose the race. I like to get out very hard, make other people hurt sometimes, and other times leave it to the last kilometre and really win the race there.
  625. The sacred rights of mankind are not to be rummaged for among old parchments or musty records. They are written, as with a sunbeam, in the whole volume of human nature, by the hand of the divinity itself; and can never be erased.
  626. The sacred rights of mankind are not to be rummaged for among old parchments or musty records. They are written, as with a sunbeam, in the whole volume of human nature, by the hand of the divinity itself; and can never be erased or obscured by mortal power.
  627. The sad and horrible conclusion is that no one cared that Jews were being murdered… This is the Jewish lesson of the Holocaust and this is the lesson which Auschwitz taught us.
  628. The sad fact is that actual artistic oppression – book banning in its many modern forms – is a matter of course in the entertainment industry, especially when the underlying product is declared politically incorrect or runs contrary to the interests of Hollywood’s political altar, the Democratic Party.
  629. The sad reality is that there are no purely domestic issues in Israel. Issues that would be dealt with by municipalities in other countries – such as how to deal with a dangerous bridge or how to resolve conflicts between religious and secular bus riders – become major international issues when they occur in Israel.
  630. The sad souls of those who lived without blame and without praise.
  631. The saddest thing I can imagine is to get used to luxury.
  632. The saddest thing that befalls a soul is when it loses faith in God and woman.
  633. The sadness of the women’s movement is that they don’t allow the necessity of love. See, I don’t personally trust any revolution where love is not allowed.
  634. The safest general characterization of the European philosophical tradition is that it consists of a series of footnotes to Plato.
  635. The safest road to hell is the gradual one – the gentle slope, soft underfoot, without sudden turnings, without milestones, without signposts.
  636. The safety of the republic being the supreme law, and Texas having offered us the key to the safety of our country from all foreign intrigues and diplomacy, I say accept the key… and bolt the door at once.
  637. The Saft America plant, a giant 235,000-square-foot mass of concrete, is a modern marvel: its roof covered in row upon row of solar panels, embodying the renewable future that the batteries manufactured within are meant to sustain.
  638. The sage does not hoard. The more he helps others, the more he benefits himself, The more he gives to others, the more he gets himself. The Way of Heaven does one good but never does one harm. The Way of the sage is to act but not to compete.
  639. The salesman knows nothing of what he is selling save that he is charging a great deal too much for it.
  640. The salt of any interesting civilization is mixture.
  641. The salvation of mankind lies only in making everything the concern of all.
  642. The same ambition can destroy or save, and make a patriot as it makes a knave.
  643. The same independence that got me into trouble in high school got me praise in college.
  644. The same men who are placing all these outrageous restrictions on women’s freedoms in southern Somalia – that type of mentality – that’s what I had to deal with in captivity.
  645. The same Source that gave you the idea, will give you the means to see it through.
  646. The same words conceal and declare the thoughts of men.
  647. The savage in man is never quite eradicated.
  648. The science can tell you that the thousands of pseudo-scientific parenting books out there – not to mention the ‘Baby Einstein’ DVDs and the flash cards and the brain-boosting toys – won’t do a thing to make your baby smarter. That’s largely because babies are already as smart as they can be; smarter than we are in some ways.
  649. The science linking the increased frequency and severity of extreme weather to the climate crisis has matured tremendously in the last couple of years.
  650. The science of operations, as derived from mathematics more especially, is a science of itself and has its own abstract truth and value, just as logic has its own peculiar truth and value, independently of the subjects to which we may apply its reasonings and processes.
  651. The science of operations, as derived from mathematics more especially, is a science of itself, and has its own abstract truth and value.
  652. The science of psychology has been far more successful on the negative than on the positive side… It has revealed to us much about man’s shortcomings, his illnesses, his sins, but little about his potentialities, his virtues, his achievable aspirations, or his psychological health.
  653. The science of the mind can only have for its proper goal the understanding of human nature by every human being, and through its use, brings peace to every human soul.
  654. The scribbler’s life is never done.
  655. The scruffier your beard, the sharper you need to dress.
  656. The sculptor produces the beautiful statue by chipping away such parts of the marble block as are not needed – it is a process of elimination.
  657. The sea complains upon a thousand shores.
  658. The sea does not reward those who are too anxious, too greedy, or too impatient. One should lie empty, open, choiceless as a beach – waiting for a gift from the sea.
  659. The sea has neither meaning nor pity.
  660. The search after the great men is the dream of youth, and the most serious occupation of manhood.
  661. The second coming of Christ will be so revolutionary that it will change every aspect of life on this planet. Disease will be eliminated. Death will be abolished. War will be eradicated. Nature will be transformed.
  662. The second office in the government is honorable and easy; the first is but a splendid misery.
  663. The secret is not to make a film that causes something like Virginia Tech to happen. The secret is to make a film that stops it happening.
  664. The secret of being miserable is to have leisure to bother about whether you are happy or not. The cure for it is occupation.
  665. The secret of business is to know something that nobody else knows.
  666. The secret of concentration is the secret of self-discovery. You reach inside yourself to discover your personal resources, and what it takes to match them to the challenge.
  667. The secret of genius is to carry the spirit of the child into old age, which means never losing your enthusiasm.
  668. The secret of getting ahead is getting started.
  669. The secret of getting things done is to act!
  670. The secret of happiness is this: let your interests be as wide as possible, and let your reactions to the things and persons that interest you be as far as possible friendly rather than hostile.
  671. The secret of living a life of excellence is merely a matter of thinking thoughts of excellence. Really, it’s a matter of programming our minds with the kind of information that will set us free.
  672. The secret of success in life is for a man to be ready for his opportunity when it comes.
  673. The secret of success is constancy to purpose.

  681. The secret to success is to offend the greatest number of people.
  682. The secular argument, or the liberal argument, is to as much as possible remove taboos so things do not become unmentionable; to let some air into the discussion.
  683. The security and the future of Jordan is hand-in-hand with the future of the Palestinians and the Israelis.
  684. The security of the citizens of Israel, the future of the state of Israel, this is the Israeli government’s responsibility.
  685. The seed is a household object but at the same time it is a revolutionary symbol.
  686. The seed of everything is in everything else.
  687. The select group of people who do make realistic cinema, who do make cinema perhaps a little more acceptable to the Western audience, is a very small percentage.
  688. The self is hateful.
  689. The selfish thing about an athlete is you always look at the side of things where you say I could’ve done that better.
  690. The Senate should refuse to confirm nominees who do not take Congressional power seriously.
  691. The Senate voted 59 to 39 in favor of an amendment I offered to the Budget Resolution calling on the Fed to tell the American people who they loaned $2.2 trillion to and how much each bank received.
  692. The sensation of writing a book is the sensation of spinning, blinded by love and daring. It is the sensation of a stunt pilot’s turning barrel rolls, or an inchworm’s blind rearing from a stem in search of a route. At its worst, it feels like alligator wrestling, at the level of the sentence.
  693. The senseless killing of 20 children and their teachers and principal at Sandy Hook Elementary School was not part of God’s grand plan. It was a thwarting of God’s plan. It was the misuse of human freedom.
  694. The sensitivity of men to small matters, and their indifference to great ones, indicates a strange inversion.
  695. The separation of church and state was meant to protect church from state; a state that declares religion off limits in public life is a state that declares itself supreme over all religious values.
  696. The sergeant is the Army.
  697. The serpent, the king, the tiger, the stinging wasp, the small child, the dog owned by other people, and the fool: these seven ought not to be awakened from sleep.
  698. The services in wartime are fit only for desperadoes, but in peace are only fit for fools.
  699. The seven-inch tablets are tweeners: too big to compete with a smartphone, and too small to compete with an iPad.
  700. The severity of the laws prevents their execution.
  701. The sexiest thing in the entire world is being really smart. And being thoughtful and being generous. Everything else is crap. I promise you. It’s just crap that people try to sell to you to make you feel like less. So don’t buy it. Be smart. Be thoughtful and be generous.
  702. The sexiest thing in the entire world is being really smart. And being thoughtful. And being generous. Everything else is crap!
  703. The sexiest thing that a woman can do, wear, and say all fall under one word to me: subtlety. To be subtle in the things that she does and the things she says and the things she wears – I appreciate the details.
  704. The SFPD has had a lot of issues, and I think one of the issues that needs to be addressed is the racist text messages that have been passed back and forth between PD members, not only talking about the community, but also talking about colleagues that work in the same department as them.
  705. The sharing of joy, whether physical, emotional, psychic, or intellectual, forms a bridge between the sharers which can be the basis for understanding much of what is not shared between them, and lessens the threat of their difference.
  706. The shepherd drives the wolf from the sheep’s for which the sheep thanks the shepherd as his liberator, while the wolf denounces him for the same act as the destroyer of liberty. Plainly, the sheep and the wolf are not agreed upon a definition of liberty.
  707. The shift to a cleaner energy economy wont happen overnight, and it will require tough choices along the way. But the debate is settled. Climate change is a fact.
  708. The shoe that fits one person pinches another; there is no recipe for living that suits all cases.

  710. The shortest answer is doing the thing.
  711. The shortest distance between two points is a straight line.
  712. The side of fairytales I don’t like is that they always have happy endings, that there’s just good and evil, and things are perfect. But life is a little more complicated, and that’s what I try to teach my kids.
  713. The signs that the world is spinning out of kilter are increasingly difficult to misinterpret. The question is how to convince enough people to join a critical mass of urgent opinion, in the U.S. and the rest of the world.
  714. The silly question is the first intimation of some totally new development.
  715. The simple facts of Chadian life – what it takes to survive in that kind of climate with nothing but a hut and some animals – stunned me. And this made me realize, perhaps for the first time, how easy my life was compared to those of people in less privileged societies.
  716. The simple rule I will follow to sustain in the industry would be to adapt to these ongoing changes and be a versatile artiste.
  717. ‘The Simpsons’ appearances were great fun. But I don’t take them too seriously. I think ‘The Simpsons’ have treated my disability responsibly.
  718. The sincerest love is satirized by the sincerest liars.
  719. The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.
  720. The single most powerful thing I can be is to be myself.
  721. The sixties were characterized by a heady belief in instantaneous solutions.
  722. The skeptical community is absolutely near and dear to the ‘Mythbusters’ heart and there’s no small reason that they’ve embraced us. That’s our people. That’s the way we like to think.
  723. The skin of my character in ‘The Man Who Fell to Earth’ was some concoction, a spermatozoon of an alien nature that was obscene and weird-looking.
  724. The sky is the daily bread of the eyes.
  725. The slave is doomed to worship time and fate and death, because they are greater than anything he finds in himself, and because all his thoughts are of things which they devour.
  726. The slightest acquaintance with history shows that powerful republics are the most warlike and unscrupulous of nations.
  727. The slogan ‘press on’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.
  728. The small part of ignorance that we arrange and classify we give the name of knowledge.
  729. The smaller the mind the greater the conceit.
  730. The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.
  731. The smallest seed of faith is better than the largest fruit of happiness.
  732. The smoothest curled courtier in the boudoirs of a palace has an animal nature, rude and aboriginal as a white bear.
  733. The sneaker heels thing is a myth. They were saying, ‘They’re like sneakers.’ No, they’re like heels is what they’re like. That’s like saying a denim skirt is like jeans. It’s not.
  734. The snow goose need not bathe to make itself white. Neither need you do anything but be yourself.
  735. The so-called Arab Spring has proved that the fall of a Mubarak-like presidency does not mean the immediate rise of democracy. In spite of this, I am confident that Egypt will not return to an authoritarian governing system again, and that, with some time, it will achieve its democratic goals.
  736. The SoCal weather can’t be beat, but I just haven’t quite been able to embrace the lifestyle.

  742. The sole substitute for an experience which we have not ourselves lived through is art and literature.
  743. The solicitor general is sometimes referred to as the 10th Supreme Court justice – a pretty important position.
  744. The solution as consumers is – perhaps surprisingly – to take adverts very, very seriously. We should ask ourselves what it is that we find lovely in them – the visions of friendship, togetherness, repose, or whatever. And then consider what would actually help us find these qualities in our lives.
  745. The Solutions Gallery allows you to import or share which of the following reporting tools or assets?
  746. The song ‘Baby Baby,’ I so love that song because I wrote it about my first daughter.
  747. The song ‘Take This Job and Shove It’ spent 18 weeks on the country charts in 1977. 1970s country music fans had a clearer understanding of the ennui of wage-slavery than modern elites.
  748. The songs are my lexicon. I believe the songs.
  749. The soul grows by reincarnation in bodies provided by nature, more complex, more powerful, as the soul unfolds greater and greater faculties. And so the soul climbs upward into the light eternal. And there is no fear for any child of man, for inevitably he climbs towards God.
  750. The soul is healed by being with children.
  751. The ‘soul’ is one of the words you can use to talk about your innermost being, the essence of who you are.
  752. The soul is your innermost being. The presence that you are beyond form. The consciousness that you are beyond form, that is the soul. That is who you are in essence.
  753. The soul never thinks without a picture.
  754. The soul should always stand ajar, ready to welcome the ecstatic experience.
  755. The soul that is within me no man can degrade.
  756. The source of all the material comes from nothingness, illusion is working more on things you can prove. That’s the principle, the essence of life, it is actually an illusion, not immaterial. That’s worth pursuing. So illusion is not nothing. In a way, that is the truth.
  757. The source of this energy is the sun’s radiation.
  758. The sovereignty of one’s self over one’s self is called Liberty.
  759. The Soviet Union, the socialist camp, the People’s Republic of China, and North Korea helped us resist, with essential supplies and weapons, the implacable blockade of the United States, the most powerful empire ever to exist.
  760. The space shuttle was often used as an example of why you shouldn’t even attempt to make something reusable. But one failed experiment does not invalidate the greater goal. If that was the case, we’d never have had the light bulb.
  761. The space within becomes the reality of the building.
  762. The spending in science and technology need to be to increased.
  763. The spirit becomes free only when it ceases to be a support.
  764. The spirit is at home, if not entirely satisfied, in America.
  765. The spirit of an age may be best expressed in the abstract ideal arts, for the spirit itself is abstract and ideal.
  766. The spirit of democracy is not a mechanical thing to be adjusted by abolition of forms. It requires change of heart.
  767. The spirit of man is more important than mere physical strength, and the spiritual fiber of a nation than its wealth.
  768. The spirit of moderation should also be the spirit of the lawgiver.
  769. The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions that I wish it to be always kept alive.
  770. The spirit of this country is totally adverse to a large military force.
  771. The spirituality that I experience sometimes touches on religion, in that I resonate with the thread of continuity that permeates through all religions. But in terms of it being a concretized, organized part of my life, it’s not.
  772. The spread of online information isn’t just good for charities. It’s also good for donors. You can go to a site like Charity Navigator, which evaluates nonprofits on their financial health as well as the amount of information they share about their work.
  773. The squandering of oil and gas is associated with one of the greatest tragedies, not in the least resolved, which is suffered by humankind: climate change.
  774. The squirrel that you kill in jest, dies in earnest.
  775. The stage show is, in some sense, highly theatrical. It’s definitely not just a band in jeans playing rock and roll.
  776. The stalkers can get a little scary at times, but I guess all these things are a part of being famous.
  777. The stand up, everything was accidental. I never grew up and was the class clown and had to get the attention. It was – it really is, I have a career despite myself.
  778. The standard companion banner size for TrueView in-stream ads on YouTube is:
  779. The start-up life kept me busy and surfaced the problem of not being able to stay on top of my personal finances, which led me to invent Mint.com. I was working 80-hour weeks, and had done enough preliminary work and research to know I had a big idea: To make money management effortless and automated.
  780. The state comes into existence for the sake of life and continues to exist for the sake of good life.
  781. The State of Israel is not collapsing and will not collapse.
  782. The State of the Union is less written than it is designed, structured and organized around applause prompts and camera cues.
  783. The states that have large in-migrations of Hispanics are Florida, Texas and California. And Florida and Texas are way above average in educational achievement, while California’s the lowest, just about.
  784. The status quo sucks.
  785. The stereotypes attached to Bollywood were that it’s a big, bad world or that it’s a dirty world.
  786. The stereotypes really play into what kinds of companies women can get funded for.
  787. The stereotypical gay man is someone whose company I enjoy, someone who makes me laugh, someone I’d want my kid to be. The stereotypical gay woman makes me insecure, conscious of my failings as a feminist.
  788. The stock prices of networking equipment companies like Cisco Systems and Nortel Networks sometimes seem as if they are priced for perpetual success.
  789. The stone often recoils on the head of the thrower.
  790. The stones tear like flesh, rather than breaking. Although what happens is violent, it is a violence that is in stone. A tear is more unnerving than a break.
  791. The stories are not autobiographical, but they’re personal in that way. I seem to know only the things that I’ve learned. Probably some things through observation, but what I feel I know surely is personal.
  792. The story entitled ‘Good-Bye’ is probably Tatsumi’s most well-known work, and I think it’s a good representation of many of Tatsumi’s skills and stylistic tendencies.
  793. The story of Detroit’s bankruptcy was simple enough: Allow capitalism to grow the city, campaign against income inequality, tax the job creators until they flee, increase government spending in order to boost employment, promise generous pension plans to keep people voting for failure. Rinse, wash and repeat.
  794. The story of how the Laffer Curve got its name begins with a 1978 article by Jude Wanniski in ‘The Public Interest’ entitled, ‘Taxes, Revenues, and the Laffer Curve.’
  795. The story of my life publicly has been told through ‘Alternative Press.’ Former employees, people who have worked there – my friend Ryan Downey, who wrote for ‘AP’ for a long time – I’ve been able to have really great articles written about me and talk openly about things in my life.
  796. The story of Noah, like other stories in the first 11 chapters of Genesis, are archetypal. Noah’s story tells us that human beings have an inherent tendency towards violence both towards their fellow human beings and towards the creation itself. The story tells us that this violence grieves God.
  797. The story of the human race is the story of men and women selling themselves short.
  798. The straight line belongs to men, the curved one to God.
  799. The straight man has the best part. He gets to be in the show and see it, too.
  800. The strategic use of different marketing channels affects:
  801. The straw that broke the camel’s back.
  802. The strength of a man’s virtue should not be measured by his special exertions, but by his habitual acts.
  803. The strength of a nation derives from the integrity of the home.
  804. The strength that I have comes from irrigating the citrus plantation, ploughing in the vineyard, guarding the melon fields at night. I believe that’s what gave me the strength.
  805. The strictest law sometimes becomes the severest injustice.
  806. The stroke of death is as a lover’s pinch, which hurts and is desired.
  807. The strong ones are the ones who realize that having a bad training day, those types of days are necessary.
  808. The stronger I am in my personal life, the more energy I have to look outward, to address my society.
  809. The stronger the participation of the female characters, the better the movie. They knew that in the old days, when women stars were equally as important as men.
  810. The structure of a play is always the story of how the birds came home to roost.
  811. The struggle against poverty in the world and the challenge of cutting wealthy country emissions all has a single, very simple solution… Here it is: Put a price on carbon.
  812. The struggle alone pleases us, not the victory.
  813. The struggle for democracy and human rights in Burma is a struggle for life and dignity. It is a struggle that encompasses our political, social and economic aspirations.
  814. The struggle for morality never stays won. It’s always in process.
  815. The struggle itself towards the heights is enough to fill a man’s heart. One must imagine Sisyphus happy.
  816. The stubby French painter Toulouse-Lautrec supposedly invented chocolate mousse – I find that rather hard to believe, but there you have it.
  817. The studios aren’t lining up to make films about black protagonists, black people being autonomous and independent.
  818. The stuff that’s going on is just so over-the-top, with the banking crisis and destroying the Gulf of Mexico, and the outrage hasn’t quite caught up with the people yet. But when it does, I think you’re going to see really virulent anti-authoritarian kind of comedy coming out.
  819. The style of God venerated in the church, mosque, or synagogue seems completely different from the style of the natural universe.
  820. The subjects have to come with questions for me. I don’t make films where I’m a massive fan.
  821. The sublimity of administration consists in knowing the proper degree of power that should be exerted on different occasions.
  822. The subtlety of nature is greater many times over than the subtlety of the senses and understanding.

  824. The success of Wipro has made me a wealthy person.
  825. The successful man will profit from his mistakes and try again in a different way.
  826. The successful men I admired all built their bodies.
  827. The suicide-bombing community is not absolutely 100 percent religious, but it is pretty nearly 100 percent religious.
  828. The sum of wisdom is that time is never lost that is devoted to work.
  829. The sun shines brighter in the wake of tragedy.
  830. The sun too penetrates into privies, but is not polluted by them.
  831. The sun, too, shines into cesspools and is not polluted.
  832. The sun, with all those planets revolving around it and dependent on it, can still ripen a bunch of grapes as if it had nothing else in the universe to do.
  833. The sunlight ranges over the universe, and at incarnation we step out of it into the twilight of the body, and see but dimly during the period of our incarceration; at death we step out of the prison again into the sunlight, and are nearer to the reality.
  834. The Super Bowl isn’t for kids, I had a great time though and it was worth every nickel of it because by doing this lame piece about the game I can put it on my expense account.
  835. The superior man acts before he speaks, and afterwards speaks according to his action.
  836. The superior man does not, even for the space of a single meal, act contrary to virtue. In moments of haste, he cleaves to it. In seasons of danger, he cleaves to it.
  837. The superior man is distressed by the limitations of his ability; he is not distressed by the fact that men do not recognize the ability that he has.
  838. The superior man is modest in his speech, but exceeds in his actions.
  839. The superior man makes the difficulty to be overcome his first interest; success only comes later.

  843. The support I’ve gotten from my teammates has been great.
  844. The supreme accomplishment is to blur the line between work and play.
  845. The Supreme Court has a very light backlog. They leave a lot of splits among the circuits, a lot of uncertainty. And I think they ought to work a lot harder.
  846. The Supreme Court’s most conservative Justices have presented themselves as great respecters of precedent and opponents of ‘judicial activism’ – of judges using the Constitution to strike down laws passed by the elected branches of government. If they are true to those principles, they should uphold rent control.
  847. The supreme function of reason is to show man that some things are beyond reason.
  848. The supreme quality for leadership is unquestionably integrity. Without it, no real success is possible, no matter whether it is on a section gang, a football field, in an army, or in an office.
  849. The supreme satisfaction is to be able to despise one’s neighbor and this fact goes far to account for religious intolerance. It is evidently consoling to reflect that the people next door are headed for hell.
  850. The surest sign of age is loneliness.
  851. The surest way to corrupt a youth is to instruct him to hold in higher esteem those who think alike than those who think differently.
  852. The surface of American society is covered with a layer of democratic paint, but from time to time one can see the old aristocratic colours breaking through.
  853. The Swedish government needs to understand that relations in the Middle East are more complicated than a piece of furniture from IKEA that you assemble at home.
  854. The sweetest thing we ever had was, like, animal crackers in the pantry. I think my parents sort of passively made sure that we didn’t have a lot of junk food at our disposal, and I think that helped me and all my siblings growing up with how to approach nutrition and eating right.
  855. The sweltering summer of the Negro’s legitimate discontent will not pass until there is an invigorating autumn of freedom and equality.
  856. The swift wind of compromise is a lot more devastating than the sudden jolt of misfortune.
  857. The symbolic language of the crucifixion is the death of the old paradigm; resurrection is a leap into a whole new way of thinking.
  858. The system is that there is no system. That doesn’t mean we don’t have process. Apple is a very disciplined company, and we have great processes. But that’s not what it’s about. Process makes you more efficient.
  859. The tablet is not mainstream. Reading off the screen is not mainstream.
  860. The Tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao; the name that can be named is not the eternal name. The Nameless is the origin of Heaven and Earth; the Named is the mother of all things.
  861. The tarot is sacred.
  862. The task of a university is the creation of the future, so far as rational thought and civilized modes of appreciation can affect the issue.
  863. The task of the modern educator is not to cut down jungles, but to irrigate deserts.
  864. The tax on capital gains directly affects investment decisions, the mobility and flow of risk capital… the ease or difficulty experienced by new ventures in obtaining capital, and thereby the strength and potential for growth in the economy.
  865. The taxpayer – that’s someone who works for the federal government but doesn’t have to take the civil service examination.
  866. The Tea Party is almost solely grassroots-based; business interests have almost no grassroots organization. The Republican Party has for too long been run on behalf of business interests who favor candidates the grassroots hate; the minute that those candidates begin to flag, only loyal Tea Partiers stand behind them.
  867. The teacher is the one who gets the most out of the lessons, and the true teacher is the learner.
  868. The teacher who is indeed wise does not bid you to enter the house of his wisdom but rather leads you to the threshold of your mind.
  869. The teachings of the New Testament are the most valuable guide to the best way to a civil and sustainable society the world has seen.
  870. The team has come along slow but fast.
  871. The temptation in any approaching crisis or conflict is, because people haven’t got a clue what lies ahead, they’re always searching into the past for some sort of pattern … to galvanise the nation or their supporters and put themselves on a pedestal to sound Churchillian or Rooseveltian.
  872. The tension I feel is the moment they say, ‘Action!’ Movies are like lightning in a bottle, and you always want to find when you possibly can catch a surprising moment.
  873. The term ‘the American Left’ is as near to being meaningless or nonsensical as any term could really be in politics. It isn’t really a force in politics anymore. And it would do well to ask itself why that is.
  874. The terrorist action of 9/11 gave birth to President Obama’s entry to the White House. Not directly, but indirectly.
  875. The terrorists and their supporters declared war on the United States – and war is what they got.
  876. The terrorists are fighting freedom with all their cunning and cruelty because freedom is their greatest fear – and they should be afraid, because freedom is on the march.
  877. The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in mind at the same time and still retain the ability to function.
  878. The test of a man or woman’s breeding is how they behave in a quarrel.
  879. The test of one’s behavior pattern is their relationship to society, relationship to work and relationship to sex.
  880. The test of our social commitment and humanity is how we treat the most powerless of our fellow citizens, the respect we accord to our fellow human beings. That is what reveals our true culture.
  881. The theater is so endlessly fascinating because it’s so accidental. It’s so much like life.
  882. The thematically related ‘Boys Don’t Cry’ and ‘Brokeback Mountain’ reinforced the narrative that gays like Mr. Shepard are regularly isolated for cruel and unusual attacks.
  883. The theoretical understanding of the world, which is the aim of philosophy, is not a matter of great practical importance to animals, or to savages, or even to most civilised men.
  884. The theory that can absorb the greatest number of facts, and persist in doing so, generation after generation, through all changes of opinion and detail, is the one that must rule all observation.
  885. The thing about a good podcast is you have to have a good host. If you don’t have a compelling host then you have nothing.
  886. The thing about HD-DVD that is attractive to Microsoft is that it’s very pro-consumer in letting you copy all movies up onto the hard disk.
  887. The thing about hip-hop today is it’s smart, it’s insightful. The way they can communicate a complex message in a very short space is remarkable.
  888. The thing about me is that I love variety. I like to try new things, and I don’t want to be pinned back.
  889. The thing about the truth is, not a lot of people can handle it.
  890. The thing about youthful offenders is that no one seems to care about them. Most people don’t like adolescents – even the good ones can be snarky and unpleasant. Combine the antipathy we feel toward the average teenager with the fear inspired by youth violence, and you have a population that no one wants to deal with.
  891. The thing always happens that you really believe in; and the belief in a thing makes it happen.
  892. The thing I always default to is that I’ll always be here to write songs.
  893. The thing I like about decathlon is also the thing I dislike: It’s the maximum challenge, but also the maximum frustration.
  894. The thing I like most about football is it’s a meritocracy.
  895. The thing I love about being a novelist is that with each project, you invent a new world. You approach it with a different set of aesthetic and structural ideas, and you grapple with a different series of problems in figuring out how to tell the story. And yet there are certain concerns that stay constant.
  896. The thing I love about Myspace is it’s a safe place where I can talk to fans every day.
  897. The thing I love about Vegas is that it’s a melting pot. It’s like working Ellis Island.
  898. The thing I love about Wisconsin is the people. We have such incredible people here. It’s fun to recognize the incredible athletes and coaches and sponsors and people we have here tonight. But we also have incredible fans.
  899. The thing I noticed about Jack was when we did a reading of the script, just to warm up.
  900. The thing I want more than anything else? I want to have children. I used to feel for every child I had, I would adopt another.
  901. The thing is, I don’t just take roles because they’re performance capture.
  902. The thing is, I don’t want to be sold to when I walk into a store. I want to be welcomed.
  903. The thing is, if you control the Senate meetings, you control the gavel. And the gavel is a very important instrument… an instrument of power. An instrument that establishes the agenda.
  904. The thing is, I’ve gotten massages to Enya. I like Enya. If you ate fantastic steaks to Celine Dion, you’d like Celine Dion.
  905. The thing is, my fantasies about being a parent always involved fighting for my unpopular child, doing for her what my own parents couldn’t do for me when I was a girl. I am so ready to be that little girl’s mother.
  906. The thing is that love gives us a ringside seat on somebody else’s flaws, so of course you’re gonna spot some things that kinda need to be mentioned. But often the romantic view is to say, ‘If you loved me, you wouldn’t criticise me.’ Actually, true love is often about trying to teach someone how to be the best version of themselves.
  907. The thing is that what you see on Snapchat, that’s DJ Khaled. That’s Khaled for real. That’s Khaled.
  908. The thing is, we live in a contemporary world, and being able to make yourself the best person you can possible be can be difficult. But as long as you’re trying to figure it out, and you’re really looking in the right direction, everything’s going to be all right.
  909. The thing is when you’re… well-enough known, you get asked to speak places, and they don’t really think about whether or not you’re qualified. They just want somebody that will be a drawing card for the audience. So it’s up to you to decide whether or not it’s foolish to get up and speak to these people.
  910. The thing our parents’ generation doesn’t get, is that if you kick ass on the internet, people will find you.
  911. The thing people don’t get about Indian films is that the songs are the story.
  912. The thing should have plot and character, beginning, middle and end. Arouse pity and then have a catharsis. Those were the best principles I was ever taught.
  913. The thing that alarms me is that there are so many clergymen who say that the so-called ‘new morality’ is all right. They say we’re living in a new generation; let’s be relevant, let’s change God’s law. Let’s say that adultery is all right under certain circumstances; fornication’s all right under certain circumstances. If it’s ‘meaningful.’
  914. The thing that enchants me the most is the ability women have to feel other people’s pain. The total empathy that women have is extraordinary.
  915. The thing that helped me get into the film business was that I went to school in Athens, Georgia and managed to get on, um, working on music videos for a band called R.E.M. and that kind of opened up a lot of doors for me.
  916. The thing that I fear discriminating against is humor and truth.
  917. The thing that I think a lot of guys need to know how to do is not take your mother’s advice about honesty being the best policy. Listen to your cool, drunk uncle who tells you to lie. Those are the relationships that last.
  918. The thing that I’m most passionate about, I’m writing a book called ‘Jab Jab Jab Jab Jab Right Hook,’ and it really focuses on how to story-tell in a noisy, ADD world.
  919. The thing that interests me least about the radio business is the radio business. But I’ve had to learn a little bit about it. It’s not rocket science: You get ratings, that’s good.
  920. The thing that is most important is having people who are involved and engaged with the kids and also are not stressed and can be involved with them. And that’s actually not boring and banal. That actually takes a lot of work to make that happen, and it’s not something that our society does very well at all.
  921. The thing that is really hard, and really amazing, is giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of becoming yourself.
  922. The thing that will never go away is that connection you make with a band or a song where you’re moved by the fact that it’s real people making music. You make that human connection with a song like ‘Let It Be’ or ‘Long and Winding Road’ or a song like ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ or ‘Roxanne,’ any of those songs. They sound like people making music.
  923. The thing that’s fun about the ‘Housewives’ is talking to your friends about it.
  924. The thing the sixties did was to show us the possibilities and the responsibility that we all had. It wasn’t the answer. It just gave us a glimpse of the possibility.
  925. The thing to do, it seems to me, is to prepare yourself so you can be a rainbow in somebody else’s cloud. Somebody who may not look like you. May not call God the same name you call God – if they call God at all. I may not dance your dances or speak your language. But be a blessing to somebody. That’s what I think.
  926. The thing to do with mutual funds is to buy a couple of decent ones, set up an investment plan and then never, ever think about them again, except maybe once a quarter or so when you take a peek at your statements to make sure that you have not accidentally been buying the Fidelity Peace-in-the-Middle-East fund.
  927. The thing we call critics are not really reviewers, they are not really critics. They don’t have the discipline to write what we would term as critique – it’s really just reviewers. They have a common man kind of taste. If you watch them overall, they are not different from the box-office. That’s my view.
  928. The thing we fear we bring to pass.
  929. The thing with film and theater is that you always know the story so you can play certain cues in each scene with the knowledge that you know where the story’s going to end and how it’s going to go. But on television nobody knows what’s going to happen, even the writers.
  930. The thing with me is if I feel disrespected I won’t hesitate to fight. But it takes a lot to make me feel disrespected.
  931. The thing with physical preparation is I have tons of friends who train at a really high level and who can give me advice. But with mental training, I don’t really know anybody who has a much better mind for climbing, I guess, so I don’t really know where I would go. It’s not really a limiting factor for me.
  932. The thing with prosthetic feet is you can’t have all this crazy motion, or you’d be all over the place – because it’s mechanical, and it’s outside your body.
  933. The thing with ‘The West Wing’ is that the fantasy was legitimately better than the reality – these were smarter, better people than their real-life counterparts, working together at a better White House than the one we had.
  934. The thing worse than rebellion is the thing that causes rebellion.
  935. The thing you can’t underestimate is the true fan’s intimacy. So Lady Gaga or anybody’s true fan, I don’t think they’re going anywhere. There are people who are into commitment. If they’re connecting with an artist, I think they’ll be there over the long course.
  936. The things I want to know are in books; my best friend is the man who’ll get me a book I ain’t read.
  937. The things most people want to know about are usually none of their business.
  938. The things that will destroy America are prosperity-at-any-price, peace-at-any-price, safety-first instead of duty-first, the love of soft living, and the get-rich-quick theory of life.
  939. The things we remember best are those better forgotten.
  940. The thinner the book, the thicker the person.
  941. The third-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking with the majority. The second-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking with the minority. The first-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking.
  942. The ‘Third World’ is a term I don’t like very much because we’re all one world. I want people to know that the largest part of humanity is suffering.
  943. The thirst for powerful sensations takes the upper hand both over fear and over compassion for the grief of others.
  944. The thornbush is the old obstacle in the road. It must catch fire if you want to go further.
  945. The thought of being President frightens me and I do not think I want the job.
  946. The thought of someone spending $20 to come and see me and saying, ‘Oh, I prefer the record and she’s completely shattered the illusion’ really upsets me. It’s such a big deal that people come give me their time.
  947. The threat or fear of violence should not become an excuse or justification for restricting freedom of speech.
  948. The threat to Russia isn’t liberal Europe or America. It is nonliberal Islam and nonliberal China. Russia has to change. It can’t be otherwise. It will take time. You have to be patient.
  949. The threats against Israel are growing.
  950. The three most powerful and most apparent means used by Rome to retain her power over the minds of her votaries are Ignorance, Superstition, and Persecution.
  951. The three ordinary things that we often don’t pay enough attention to, but which I believe are the drivers of all success, are hard work, perseverance, and basic honesty.
  952. The Tibetan people will need to determine who the next reincarnation of the Dalai Lama is.
  953. The time comes upon every public man when it is best for him to keep his lips closed.
  954. The time for action is now. It’s never too late to do something.
  955. The time has come for all evangelists to practice full financial disclosure. The world is watching how we walk and how we talk. We must have the highest standards of morality, ethics and integrity if we are to continue to have influence.
  956. The time has come to return integrity, performance and dignity to New York and make it the Empire State once again.
  957. The time I have already spent at Harvard has been a stimulating experience, and I look forward to developing my relationship and activities with the students, faculty and friends of the Harvard Business School community.

  959. The time is always right to do what is right.
  960. The time to repair the roof is when the sun is shining.
  961. The time to save for the future is now. Thanks to compounding interest, the earlier you start putting money away for the future, the more you will save.
  962. The time to stop a revolution is at the beginning, not the end.
  963. The time to take counsel of your fears is before you make an important battle decision. That’s the time to listen to every fear you can imagine! When you have collected all the facts and fears and made your decision, turn off all your fears and go ahead!
  964. The time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time.
  965. The titanic effort that has brought liberation to South Africa, and ensured the total liberation of Africa, constitutes an act of redemption for the black people of the world.
  966. The tool that’s most associated with the recent progress against malaria is the long-lasting bed net. Bed nets are a fantastic innovation. But we can do even better. We can invent new ways to control the mosquitoes that carry the malaria parasite.
  967. The Tories, every election, must have a bogy man. If you haven’t got a programme, a bogy man will do.
  968. The total absence of humor from the Bible is one of the most singular things in all literature.
  969. The totalitarian, to me, is the enemy – the one that’s absolute, the one that wants control over the inside of your head, not just your actions and your taxes.
  970. The Tour de France would make a great movie. Drugs, corruption, political chicanery, guys risking their lives – everything you need for a great sports drama.
  971. The touring was crazy, it was a lot of work. But I enjoyed it.
  972. The tourist transports his own values and demands to his destinations and implants them like an infectious disease, decimating whatever values existed before.
  973. The trade deficit is the capital surplus and don’t ever think of having a capital surplus as being a bad thing for our country.
  974. The trade magazine and all was banned in my house. The first time I read a film magazine was when I was 18.
  975. The trade of authorship is a violent, and indestructible obsession.
  976. The traditional stand adopted by the Cuban Revolution, which was always opposed to any action that could jeopardize the life of civilians, is well known.

  983. The trends that last and the trends that are relevant are the ones that make you look pretty.

  985. The trick is growing up without growing old.
  986. The trouble ain’t that there is too many fools, but that the lightning ain’t distributed right.
  987. The trouble is not that players have sex the night before a game. It’s that they stay out all night looking for it.
  988. The trouble with censors is that they worry if a girl has cleavage. They ought to worry if she hasn’t any.
  989. The trouble with energy farming is that the energy isn’t always where you want to use it, and it isn’t always when you want to use it.
  990. The trouble with her is that she lacks the power of conversation but not the power of speech.
  991. The trouble with our Liberal friends is not that they’re ignorant; it’s just that they know so much that isn’t so.
  992. The trouble with our people is as soon as they got out of slavery they didn’t want to give the white man nothing else. But the fact is, you got to give em something. Either your money, your land, your woman or your ass.
  993. The trouble with talking too fast is you may say something you haven’t thought of yet.
  994. The trouble with the future is that it usually arrives before we’re ready for it.
  995. The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt.

  998. The true and the approximately true are apprehended by the same faculty; it may also be noted that men have a sufficient natural instinct for what is true, and usually do arrive at the truth. Hence the man who makes a good guess at truth is likely to make a good guess at probabilities.
  999. The true basis of morality is utility; that is, the adaptation of our actions to the promotion of the general welfare and happiness; the endeavour so to rule our lives that we may serve and bless mankind.
