  1. There is no question that climate change is happening; the only arguable point is what part humans are playing in it.
  2. There is no real limit to how much better a person who really commits to getting better can get. Every manager has the potential to become an excellent manager for the rest of his or her career.
  3. There is no real teacher who in practice does not believe in the existence of the soul, or in a magic that acts on it through speech.
  4. There is no reason why a guitar player makes the guitar-playing faces. It doesn’t help you play guitar. You’ve not improved your skills. It’s because you’re up onstage, and the natural inclination is to put on a show. The rock guy faces are just as much of a front or a show as us wearing crazy makeup. It’s just a different scale.

  6. There is no remedy for love but to love more.

  11. There is no safer place to put your money than in the middle of the U.S.

  15. There is no security on this earth; there is only opportunity.
  16. There is no separation between mind and body… Self and other co-arise and fall away all the time.

  22. There is no subject so old that something new cannot be said about it.
  23. There is no substitute for hard work, 23 or 24 hours a day. And there is no substitute for patience and acceptance.
  24. There is no substitute for talent. Industry and all its virtues are of no avail.
  25. There is no substitute for victory.
  26. There is no such thing as a moral or an immoral book. Books are well written, or badly written.
  27. There is no such thing as a perfect basketball player, and I don’t believe there is only one greatest player either.
  28. There is no such thing as a pure introvert or extrovert. Such a person would be in the lunatic asylum.
  29. There is no such thing as an artist – only the world, lit or unlit, as the world allows.
  30. There is no such thing as defeat in non-violence.
  31. There is no such thing as excessive firepower. There is only open fire and reload.

  33. There is no such thing as public opinion. There is only published opinion.
  34. There is no such thing as talent. There is pressure.
  35. There is no terror in the bang, only in the anticipation of it.

  42. There is no way in the world anyone else could do my wedding other than myself, along with whomever I select to do various things.
  43. There is no way to undo what happened in the Zimmerman-Martin encounter, but some good can still come of it: it could lead states to repeal their misguided ‘Stand your ground’ laws.
  44. There is nobody that I know who believes that Bank of America is a human being who should be entitled for the same constitutional rights that the people of our country are.

  46. There is not a formula for the way that God heals. There’s not a timetable.
  47. There is not a liberal America and a conservative America – there is the United States of America. There is not a black America and a white America and latino America and asian America – there’s the United States of America.
  48. There is not a lot of money in competition dancing. There never has been; it’s all about winning the trophies, really. It’s not like golf.

  55. There is not enough religion in the world even to destroy religion.
  56. There is not one big cosmic meaning for all, there is only the meaning we each give to our life, an individual meaning, an individual plot, like an individual novel, a book for each person.
  57. There is not to be found, in all history, any miracle attested by a sufficient number of men, of such unquestioned good sense, education and learning, as to secure us against all delusion in themselves.

  59. There is nothing as sweet as a comeback, when you are down and out, about to lose, and out of time.
  60. There is nothing at all that God won’t forgive.
  61. There is nothing besides a spiritual world; what we call the world of the senses is the Evil in the spiritual world, and what we call Evil is only the necessity of a moment in our eternal evolution.
  62. There is nothing better than a really cool mystery: you don’t know what’s going to happen, so you keep turning those pages or watching that series.
  63. There is nothing better than playing a bad girl for two months, then turning around and playing someone sweet. Films give you this opportunity.

  83. There is nothing new in the realization that the Constitution sometimes insulates the criminality of a few in order to protect the privacy of us all.
  84. There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow men. True nobility lies in being superior to your former self.

  89. There is nothing so strong or safe in an emergency of life as the simple truth.
  90. There is nothing that compares to the Holocaust.

  92. There is nothing that wastes the body like worry, and one who has any faith in God should be ashamed to worry about anything whatsoever.
  93. There is nothing that would upset me more than my dad being bribed by the press. It’s like, ‘Just let them run it, then. Don’t you give them ammunition.’
  94. There is nothing that you can’t do, only things that you want to or not.
  95. There is nothing to winning, really. That is, if you happen to be blessed with a keen eye, an agile mind, and no scruples whatsoever.

  102. There is nothing wrong with men possessing riches. The wrong comes when riches possess men.
  103. There is one common thing in superstars – enthusiasm and humility towards their work. Off sets, they are big stars for others, and they carry themselves the way they want to. When they are working, they are not stars.
  104. There is one consolation in being sick; and that is the possibility that you may recover to a better state than you were ever in before.
  105. There is one person who can help solve ‘writer’s block’. His name is Mr. Johnnie Walker.

  116. There is only one thing more painful than learning from experience and that is not learning from experience.

  122. There is pathos and drama in ‘Half Girlfriend.’
  123. There is perhaps no better way to appreciate the dizzying stupidity of the United States than to chat with 25 consecutive morning radio hosts.
  124. There is plenty of building material and more than enough manpower to make a decent home for every Cuban. But if we continue to wait for the golden calf, a thousand years will have gone by, and the problem will remain the same.
  125. There is plenty of television. There are plenty of talk shows. There are plenty of comedians. But there is not plenty of worship of the true and living God.
  126. There is poison in the fang of the serpent, in the mouth of the fly and in the sting of a scorpion; but the wicked man is saturated with it.
  127. There is probably a perverse pride in my administration… that we were going to do the right thing, even if short-term it was unpopular. And I think anybody who’s occupied this office has to remember that success is determined by an intersection in policy and politics and that you can’t be neglecting of marketing and P.R. and public opinion.
  128. There is resistance to change. There’s a resistance to ideas.
  129. There is so much that must be done in a civilized barbarism like war.
  130. There is so much that we need to do for our country. I don’t think that we can afford to wait.
  131. There is some argument about who actually invented text messaging, but I think it’s safe to say it was a man. Multiple studies have shown that the average man uses about half as many words per day as women, thus text messaging. It eliminates hellos and goodbyes and cuts right to the chase.
  132. There is some self-interest behind every friendship. There is no friendship without self-interests. This is a bitter truth.
  133. There is something about a cupboard that makes a skeleton terribly restless.

  136. There is something feeble and a little contemptible about a man who cannot face the perils of life without the help of comfortable myths.
  137. There is something in the pang of change More than the heart can bear, Unhappiness remembering happiness.
  138. There is something in the unselfish and self-sacrificing love of a brute, which goes directly to the heart of him who has had frequent occasion to test the paltry friendship and gossamer fidelity of mere Man.
  139. There is something not entirely satisfying about an online memorial.
  140. There is something sinister, something quite biographical about what I do – but that part is for me. It’s my personal business. I think there is a lot of romance, melancholy. There’s a sadness to it, but there’s romance in sadness. I suppose I am a very melancholy person.
  141. There is something so settled and stodgy about turning a great romance into next of kin on an emergency room form, and something so soothing and special, too.
  142. There is something terribly morbid in the modern sympathy with pain. One should sympathise with the colour, the beauty, the joy of life. The less said about life’s sores the better.
  143. There is something that is much more scarce, something finer far, something rarer than ability. It is the ability to recognize ability.
  144. There is still a perception that the way women are isn’t necessarily what you need for the powerhouse start-ups.
  145. There is such a thing as old emotional pain living inside you. It is an accumulation of painful life experience that was not fully faced and accepted in the moment it arose. It leaves behind an energy form of emotional pain.
  146. There is such a thing as ‘thanks-feeling’ – feeling thankful. This ought to be the general, universal spirit of the Christian.
  147. There is the desire of a consumer society to have no learning curves. This tends to result in very dumbed-down products that are easy to get started on, but are generally worthless and/or debilitating.
  148. There is the good and the bad, the great and the low, the just and the unjust. I swear to you that all that will never change.
  149. There is the natural tendency that all of us are vulnerable to, to deny unpleasant realities and to look for any excuse to push them away and resolve to think about them another day long in the future.
  150. There is the sky, which is all men’s together.
  151. There is this intimacy still in Botswana. It’s a country of just under two million people, and there’s this sense of connectedness, in that people tend to be related to one another.
  152. There is this myth, that America is a melting pot, but what happens in assimilation is that we end up deliberately choosing the American things – hot dogs and apple pie – and ignoring the Chinese offerings.
  153. There is very little diversity among founders in the Unicorn Club.
  154. There isn’t a day when I don’t look in the mirror and think, ‘How in the hell did I become a conservative Republican?’ It’s still a weird reckoning, because it shouldn’t have happened.
  155. There isn’t any formula or method. You learn to love by loving – by paying attention and doing what one thereby discovers has to be done.
  156. There isn’t anybody that looks like me without clothes on.
  157. There isn’t much I have to say, that I wouldn’t rather just shut up and do.
  158. There lives more faith in honest doubt, believe me, than in half the creeds.
  159. There may be significant things to learn about people by looking at what annoys them most.
  160. There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest.
  161. There may be writing groups where people meet but it’s occasional. You really do it all at your own computer or your own typewriter by yourself.
  162. There may sometimes be ungenerous attempts to keep a young man down; and they will succeed, too, if he allows his mind to be diverted from its true channel to brood over the attempted injury.
  163. There must be a major economic recovery package which puts Americans to work at decent wages.
  164. There must be a reason why photographers are not very good at verbal communication. I think we get lazy.
  165. There must be a reason why some people can afford to live well. They must have worked for it. I only feel angry when I see waste. When I see people throwing away things that we could use.
  166. There needs to be more deliberate effort on the part of folks at VC firms to bring in a more diverse team of talent. You have to make a more concerted effort to bring in people who are different and who may not be in your network.
  167. There never was a good war or a bad peace.
  168. There never was a truly great man that was not at the same time truly virtuous.
  169. There never was and is not likely soon to be a nation of philosophers, nor am I certain it is desirable that there should be.
  170. There often is a dark secret in books… There is often a gathering sense of dread; there’s a gap sometimes in the text from which all kinds of monsters can emerge.
  171. There really isn’t a story that you can’t tell inside of it. It’s very much a clearinghouse for anything that goes on in the world. So you’re not at all limited.
  172. There should be a law that no ordinary newspaper should be allowed to write about art. The harm they do by their foolish and random writing it would be impossible to overestimate – not to the artist, but to the public, blinding them to all but harming the artist not at all.
  173. There should be a minimum on the air pressure but not a maximum. Every game, they’re taking air out of the footballs I’m throwing, and I think that’s a disadvantage for the way that I like them prepped.
  174. There should be an app or service that comes and packs your bag for you so you don’t have to do it. A real-life Siri.
  175. There should be choice in healthcare.
  176. There should be marches in every neighborhood every day telling the people about the negativity of drugs and how the drugs help us to behave negatively.
  177. There should be more on television that uplifts people and shows them how to better prepare themselves for earning a living.
  178. There should be weeping at a man’s birth, not at his death.
  179. There was a fascinating handmade poster scene in Chicago in the ’90s, and I became friends with many of the artists; the posters were often more impressive than the bands.
  180. There was a lot of me trying to be a ‘fixer.’ I was that kind of guy. I’d meet someone who had ‘so much potential’ that needed ‘help.’ I think that was kind of my curse for a long time.
  181. There was a much more self-destructive nature in ‘Appetite.’ It was a going-for-it-at-all-cost thing that worked then.
  182. There was a period of time during the ‘Jagged Little Pill’ era where I don’t think I laughed for about two years. It was a survival mode, you know. It was an intense, constant, chronic over-stimulation and invasion of energetic and physical literal space.
  183. There was a period of time when I thought I had to be Alice Cooper all the time.
  184. There was a point in the late ’90s where all the graduating M.B.A.’s wanted to start companies in Silicon Valley, and for the most part they were not actually qualified to do it.

  187. There was a stool there, and some fella kept asking me if I wanted to sit down. When I saw the stool sitting there, it gave me the idea. I’ll just put the stool out there and I’ll talk to Mr. Obama and ask him why he didn’t keep all of the promises he made to everybody.
  188. There was a time when a fool and his money were soon parted, but now it happens to everybody.
  189. There was a time when ‘Batman’ really kept me from getting some pretty good roles, and I was asked to do what I figured were important features. However, Batman was there, and very few people would take a chance on me walking onto the screen. And they’d be taking people away from the story.
  190. There was a time when I first started when I made a fake press pass and borrowed a camera and headed into wars, and for three years, that was the only kind of story I was interested in doing.
  191. There was a time when I was knocking on doors and concerned with being recognized in dominant culture. I’ve found a space where the terrain is different, where I’m embraced by people like me, and where I’m building new ways of doing things, as opposed to trying to insert myself in a place that might not be welcoming.
  192. There was a time when someone would get on a plane and request to move their seat just because the person sitting next to them was of a different ethnicity or religion or nationality. But I don’t think my generation wants that. That’s how it used to be.
  193. There was a while when I was feeling like, ‘Damn, if I’d just been born black, I would not have to go through all this’.
  194. There was a year between school and getting going as an actor when I basically just watched films. Video shops were the new thing, and there was a good one round the corner and me and my brother just watched everything, from the horror to the European art-house.
  195. There was absolutely no pressure from the family. It was my choice to pursue a career in music. I always wanted to do music, which has been close to heart. In fact, I was dead sure about it.
  196. There was an implicit conviction that the UN would be stronger than the sum of its constituent member-states.
  197. There was certainly, like, a rebellious, like, youthful rage in me. And there was also the fact of no getting away from fact that I am white, and you know, this is predominantly black music, you know.
  198. There was just something about me she did not like.
  199. There was my name up in lights. I said, ‘God, somebody’s made a mistake.’ But there it was, in lights. And I sat there and said, ‘Remember, you’re not a star.’ Yet there it was up in lights.
  200. There was never a child so lovely but his mother was glad to get him to sleep.
  201. There was never a genius without a tincture of madness.
  202. There was never a time when I wasn’t making guitars out of cardboard or dressing up like the Misfits.
  203. There was never a war on poverty. Maybe there was a skirmish on poverty.
  204. There was never yet fair woman but she made mouths in a glass.
  205. There was no concept of fashion and catwalk shows where I came from.
  206. There was one theory put forth by a journalist recently. I have a lot of friends that have died prematurely and a lot of friends that have died of natural causes. I’ve lost a lot of people over the years. This journalist basically recommended to me that God keeps me around because I amuse him.
  207. There was so much fear after 9/11, and that fear caused people to make the wrong decisions.
  208. There was so much racism when I was a kid, but it was also ignorant.
  209. There was something undifferentiated and yet complete, which existed before Heaven and Earth. Soundless and formless, it depends on nothing and does not change. It operates everywhere and is free from danger. It may be considered the mother of the universe. I do not know its name; I call it Tao.
  210. There were a lot of people who were a little afraid of the rage or blaming stance I was taking, and find what I am doing now more refreshing.
  211. There were days I could barely struggle into a size 46 or 48, months of larges and XXLs, and endless rounds of leggings with the elastic at the waist stretched to its limit and beyond – topped with the fashion equivalent of a tea cozy. And always black, because I was in mourning for my slimmer self.
  212. There were definitely dark nights when you’re like, ‘Maybe joining the military wasn’t such a good idea.’ But, in a way, it was the best training to be an actor.
  213. There were definitely times when I regretted ever being Batman.
  214. There were lots of smart black people at Harvard before Barack Obama, but none of them ever got to head up the law review. There has been a history of discrimination.
  215. There were people who incorporated melody before me, but I would deem myself the first person to successfully rap and sing.
  216. There were so many outstanding women in scripture that were leaders. And, you know, the organized church sometimes puts boundaries on us that the Bible doesn’t.
  217. There were some advantages to being a woman photographer. I think women have more empathy with the subject.
  218. There were websites erected to figure out how to kill Alanis. I just do not need to see this; it’s not good for anybody.
  219. There weren’t a lot of career opportunities in crazy-fast hardcore punk, so you didn’t have a lot of ambition, just the love and passion to play music with your friends.
  220. There will always be a part of me that wants to do a movie musical. I feel like you’re doing yourself a disservice when you say something like that, because you never know if that thing is gonna come along and be right, but I’d be lying if I said that that wasn’t true.
  221. There will always be something to ruin our lives, it all depends on what or which finds us first. We are always ripe and ready to be taken.
  222. There will be, and should be, reams and reams of analysis, even praise, for our friend but also even larger measures of non-analysis and, certainly, condemnation for James Baldwin, the Negro writer.
  223. There will be days when I walk in an arena and people will cheer and then there might be days when I walk in an arena and people might boo, but it all sounds the same to me because it’s all just noise that lets me know that I’m relevant.
  224. There will be no lasting peace either in the heart of individuals or in social customs until death is outlawed.
  225. There will be no new music until it’s good enough and until I’m ready.
  226. There will be very few occasions when you are absolutely certain about anything. You will consistently be called upon to make decisions with limited information. That being the case, your goal should not be to eliminate uncertainty. Instead, you must develop the art of being clear in the face of uncertainty.
  227. There will never be a new world order until women are a part of it.
  228. There will never be a really free and enlightened State until the State comes to recognize the individual as a higher and independent power, from which all its own power and authority are derived, and treats him accordingly.
  229. There will never be another Ed Koch. He was an original, but he represented a significant, if shrinking, segment of American Jewry who refused to compromise their liberal values, their support for Israel or their Jewish pride.
  230. There would be nothing to get me to run for president. I don’t even understand how anyone would want that job at all. Although I would be able to play golf which I don’t seem to have time now.
  231. There would be times when I got so much work that I didn’t have time to write. School interfered with writing more than writing with school.
  232. Therefore if a man look sharply and attentively, he shall see Fortune; for though she be blind, yet she is not invisible.
  233. ‘Therefore’ is a word the poet must not know.
  234. Therefore, the good of man must be the end of the science of politics.
  235. Therefore the great mediator of any community is human morality.
  236. There’s 20 companies that I have investments in – some batteries, some solar-thermal, one big nuclear thing. We need hundreds and hundreds of companies like that, so that in a 20-year time frame we really are starting to change the energy infrastructure.
  237. There’s a beauty in being unrealistic.
  238. There’s a beauty to wisdom and experience that cannot be faked. It’s impossible to be mature without having lived.
  239. There’s a belonging problem in Hollywood. Who dictates who belongs? The very body who dictates that looks all one way.
  240. There’s a big difference, as I’m sure you know, it’s a slightly manneristic one, between people of the ’60s and people of ’68. Being a soixante-huitard – it’s so nice to have a French word for it – is very different from just having happened to been a baby boomer in the ’60s.
  241. There’s a big difference between falling in love with someone and falling in love with someone and getting married. Usually, after you get married, you fall in love with the person even more.
  242. There’s a big difference between the independent film world and the Hollywood film world, and I don’t know that I understood that until I got into certain rooms, and people’s faces go blank when you talk about Sundance.
  243. There’s a bizarre insistence on how a story should be. ‘The protagonist must be sympathetic!’ they say. Whatever that means. I never engage in that discussion. I never use that word, ‘sympathetic.’ I just know ‘interesting.’
  244. There’s a certain kind of insular, old-fashioned, upper-class Britishness that gives me the spooks. I am sure that comes from a boarding-school trauma.
  245. There’s a certain level of pageantry with ‘Idol,’ and in order to work the show, you kind of have to feed into it.
  246. There’s a charm, there’s a rhythm, there’s a soul to Jewish humor. When I first saw Richard Pryor perform, I told him, ‘You’re doing a Jewish act.’
  247. There’s a clock ticking on the pregnancy thing, but not a clock ticking on adoption.
  248. There’s a constant tension between the excitement of new people and security with one person. If you go with excitement, you create chaos; you hurt people. There’s jealousy, and it gets very messy. If you have security, it can be boring, and you die inside because of all the opportunities missed.
  249. There’s a constant tension in climbing, and really all exploration, between pushing yourself into the unknown but trying not to push too far. The best any of us can do is to tread that line carefully.
  250. There’s a continuity between what I care about in any form: I care about it in my music, in article-writing, in how I dress, in how I live, in my relationships, in how I navigate paparazzi, how I decorate my home. There’s such a continuity between everything that I don’t really care what form it shows up in.
  251. There’s a couple guys that I’d like to wrestle, but truthfully, I want to wrestle as many guys as I can.
  252. There’s a culture inside the NHS that is highly paternalistic. You know, ‘We give them the service and they are grateful.’ We have to move to shared decision-making.
  253. There’s a deep piece of me that wants to be very personal and not share everything with everybody and not put it out there.
  254. There’s a difference between a philosophy and a bumper sticker.
  255. There’s a difference between an actual insult and a friendly jab. So I don’t think I’m offensive onstage.
  256. There’s a difference between being an actress who can sing and being a Sally Song-and-Dance.
  257. There’s a famous artist, Ron English, in New York, that just, or Andy Warhol for that matter, that did pop art that terrorized society. And that’s, for the last like 10, 15 years, that’s all I wanted to do, is terrorize society and make them look into a mirror and see what the hell we have wrought.
  258. There’s a freshness to the approach of teen chefs. They’re lighthearted, and they’re not afraid to take risks.
  259. There’s a gap between people knowing what I do and really believing that I still do that – and wondering what it is I really do.
  260. There’s a good argument to be made that companies that are private, where they’re run by partnerships, where everybody has true stake in them and they’re not playing with other people’s money, that by default it’s a safer system, because you really have skin in the game. You really own the company.
  261. There’s a great deal of scientific evidence that social connectedness is a very strong protector of emotional well-being, and I think there’s no question that social isolation has greatly increased in our culture in, say, the past 50 years, past 100 years.
  262. There’s a great deal to say in the Bible about the signs we’re to watch for, and when these signs all converge at one place we can be sure that we’re close to the end of the age.
  263. There’s a great public disinclination toward politicians.
  264. There’s a great tradition in storytelling that’s thousands of years old, telling stories about kings and their palaces, and that’s really what I wanted to do.
  265. There’s a huge cloud of shame around art and business being seen as bedfellows.
  266. There’s a huge difference between who I am when I make music and who I am the rest of the time.
  267. There’s a huge gulf between people who can afford to go to drama school and those who can’t.
  268. There’s a hunger in me that always wants to be creating and orating, telling people something and giving them information and getting feedback. There are so many questions that I’m trying to ask, and I’m still so far from being done saying what I gotta say.
  269. There’s a kind of immediacy that comes with being constantly connected that I don’t really relate to in my generation.
  270. There’s a level of sophistication of filmmaking that’s mind-boggling. Anything you need for your movie, there’s an establishment that can make it happen really fast.
  271. There’s a line I have that our family was designed more for public than for private. But there are definitely some things that are only mine. I am someone who dreams at night, and you don’t know what I’m dreaming.
  272. There’s a lot about records that you cannot feel from a CD.
  273. There’s a lot of books that I’ve purchased simply because of the cover design. On the other hand, there’s certain books that, even if I’m very curious about the content, I can’t bring myself to buy if I really dislike the cover.
  274. There’s a lot of demand to hear the new Kanye West album before it hits the streets. There’s much less demand to read the new Phillip Roth novel.
  275. There’s a lot of evidence that shows that if we push as hard as we need to for net-zero emissions, we’ll find ourselves with cities that are more secure, healthier, and have more economic opportunity – are frankly better cities to live in – than if we settle for the status quo.
  276. There’s a lot of ‘Game of Thrones’ stuff used in a lot of pastiches. I don’t know if I’ve seen a Lego ‘Game of Thrones’ yet, but there must be one. And there’s an animated thing that’s been going on for quite some time, and Littlefinger is a newsreader in it, and it’s great.
  277. There’s a lot of goals I’ve set in the WWE that I want to accomplish. I’m always setting goals for myself, and someday I want to be in the Hall of Fame.
  278. There’s a lot of great movies that have won the Academy Award, and a lot of great movies that haven’t. You just do the best you can.
  279. There’s a lot of great singers out here.
  280. There’s a lot of interesting words, nomenclatures, in science.
  281. There’s a lot of people in this world, and it’s important to learn about them.
  282. There’s a lot of rednecks in the country where I grew up.
  283. There’s a lot of rudeness and sullen behavior and kids that are very entitled and spoiled, just buy me more stuff. I didn’t want to raise kids like that.
  284. There’s a lot of things that need to change. One specifically? Police brutality.
  285. There’s a lot of ways to win a belt, but taking it from a champion is very important to me.
  286. There’s a lot of women’s organisations, but they’re all working separately. If you get people together, as a collaborative voice, it’s strong.
  287. There’s a method to the madness in filmmaking, where everything’s very specifically laid out, the shots and what they need – but there also can be a freedom to allowing the actors to find genuine moments.
  288. There’s a number of places I’ve wanted to go but it’s been determined too risky or that I’m relatively well-known, and therefore it might not be wise for me to pop up in this place.
  289. There’s a part of every person that is entertained by the idealistic, the fantastic.
  290. There’s a part of me that feels like it gets really frustrating to keep working in the manner that I made the book ‘Shortcomings,’ where everything is pretty accurate to the real world.
  291. There’s a reason why the Foo Fighters don’t blast out Nirvana songs every night: because we have a lot of respect for them. You know, that’s hallowed ground. We have to be careful. We have to tread lightly. We have talked about it before, but the opportunity hasn’t really come up, or it just hasn’t felt right.
  292. There’s a reasonable amount of traction in college education, particularly engineering, because quite a lot of that is privatized, so there is an incentive to set up new colleges of reasonably high quality.
  293. There’s a rebel lying deep in my soul.
  294. There’s a rhythm to the legislative session and there are rhythms to legislative sessions. So I think that’s very important to take into consideration when you are deciding what to do when.
  295. There’s a schizoid streak within the family anyway so I dare say that I’m affected by that. The majority of the people in my family have been in some kind of mental institution, as for my brother he doesn’t want to leave. He likes it very much.
  296. There’s a scripture that says, ‘A merry heart doeth good like medicine.’ I think that’s true, too.
  297. There’s a silly notion that failure’s not an option at NASA. Failure is an option here. If things are not failing, you are not innovating enough.
  298. There’s a spectrum of those moments of connection and the moments we fail to connect, going from super-large successes to failures. Success would be love, I guess, and failure could still be love, but the bad side; and loss.
  299. There’s a tendency to think that young designers only do fantasy fashion, but I’m more interested in making clothes that women can afford.
  300. There’s a very small group of elite actresses who are my age, who people want to work with. It’s not easy to get a good job with good actors.
  301. There’s a voice inside you that tells you what you should do.
  302. There’s a way I could have done things differently. I know that. If I offended anyone along the way, I do apologize.
  303. There’s a whole group of people who are 100-plus and have no disease. Why?
  304. There’s a widespread cultural barrenness across art and political culture. But there are some pockets of resistance on the extreme margins, like the techno-savvy protest movements, small press, the creator-owned comics, that seem to be getting some signs of hope for the future.
  305. There’s a world of difference between truth and facts. Facts can obscure the truth.
  306. There’s absolutely no comparisons to me or anyone else to Willie Mays. Willie Mays, he’s the greatest baseball player of all time.
  307. There’s all sorts of stuff people want to publish anonymously.
  308. There’s almost no popular music I listen to now. I’ll hear it because it’s everywhere… Music is ubiquitous now.
  309. There’s also a sense of freedom. I was so obsessed by this problem that I was thinking about if all the time – when I woke up in the morning, when I went to sleep at night, and that went on for eight years.
  310. There’s always a pressure on performing the best.
  311. There’s always a wine bully. The one person who did read the ‘Wine Spectator,’ who tells you what to drink and why the ’97 is better than the ’98. I want to punch the wine bully in the face. I want to make sure this generation of wine drinkers isn’t elitist and snotty. I want it to be about family and bringing people together.
  312. There’s always been a lot of information about your activities. Every phone number you dial, every credit-card charge you make. It’s long since passed that a typical person doesn’t leave footprints.
  313. There’s always going to be silly stuff out there in the media that you can’t worry too much about, and I don’t. We just keep on trucking, and I like the way my… I think there should be ‘professional is professional, and personal is personal,’ and that’s just how I’m going to keep it.
  314. There’s always going to be the need for new medications, better medications.
  315. There’s always gonna be rock n’ roll bands, there’s always gonna be kids that love rock n’ roll records, and there will always be rock n’ roll.
  316. There’s always great things that champions do. It can be inside fighting, this person uses his range well, this person has a great right hand – anytime you fight a champion, there’s multiple things that they do well, and you have to try to take those strengths away.
  317. There’s always moments where you creep yourself out, and you think you heard something and you convince yourself that some spirit is in the room with you, but truly, I don’t believe in any of that kind of thing. A lot of my friends really do.
  318. There’s always opposition when you do something big. I do many things that are controversial. When people see it, they love it!
  319. There’s always someone asking you to underline one piece of yourself – whether it’s Black, woman, mother, dyke, teacher, etc. – because that’s the piece that they need to key in to. They want to dismiss everything else.
  320. There’s always the danger when you have influenzas that infect chickens, that when you have the close quarters of chickens spreading from one to another and occasionally a human coming into close contact, that there will be the jumping of species from a chicken to a human. This is not something new.
  321. There’s always the standard six people you can hire that have played all these villains in Hollywood. Instinctively, when they come on screen, you know what’s going to happen. You don’t know the story, but you know what they do.
  322. There’s an appeal to the American sense of exceptionalism, that we’re morally superior, as way to not be self-critical. I think that’s a bit dangerous.
  323. There’s an ecstatic side to writing. It’s like jazz. It just has a life.
  324. There’s an effort to reclaim the unmentionable, the unsayable, the unspeakable, all those things come into being a composer, into writing music, into searching for notes and pieces of musical information that don’t exist.
  325. There’s an opportunity to make your board – and your company – smarter by adding diversity, especially of gender.
  326. There’s barely a strand of the modern media that the Kardashian-Wests haven’t been able to master, and for good reason: Kanye is an amazing performer and cultural provocateur, while Kim, through her strength of character, has created a place for herself in the glare of the world’s spotlight, and it takes real guts to do that.
  327. There’s been a growing dissatisfaction and distrust with the conventional publishing industry, in that you tend to have a lot of formerly reputable imprints now owned by big conglomerates.
  328. There’s been a lot of talk about Jack White wanting to work with me, and I’ve always admired him, and of course, he lives in Nashville, too.
  329. There’s been intelligence that terrorists would look to programs such as the visa waiver program to exploit.
  330. There’s been no major motion picture released by a studio, no independent motion picture, in theaters, with King at the center, in the 50 years since these events happened, when we have biopics on all kinds of ridiculous people. And nothing on King? No cinematic representation that’s meaningful and centered.
  331. There’s been some research in cognitive science, I’m told, that discloses that there have always been perhaps 10 to 15 percent of people who are, as Pascal puts it, so made that they cannot believe. To us, when people talk about faith, it’s white noise.
  332. There’s certainly a side of me that isn’t completely… sane. Or completely ‘even’ all the time. We all have our dark sides.
  333. There’s cleanliness to how I eat now. I’m much more in tune with my body, so now that I’m so in tune based on having become a semivegan, I can tell what foods affect energy levels. I can tell when I’ve been eating particularly high nutrient foods or I can tell when my glycemic levels are all over the place.
  334. There’s competition everywhere.
  335. There’s definitely a list of things I’d like to do. But there’s been a lot of things I hadn’t even thought would have been possible to do that I’d been able to do, so I think I’ll surprise myself and keep breaking that glass ceiling to see what’s next. Hopefully people get surprised – that’s my main goal.
  336. There’s enough data showing that the fitter you are, the better you eat, the more likely you are to stay healthy longer.
  337. There’s going to be space travel at some point.
  338. There’s going to come a time when maybe I have kids and a wife.
  339. There’s humor in everything. There’s gotta be humor in everything.
  340. There’s just a proliferation of blogs and the chattering classes and people talking. More avenues for people to make their feelings known, which is good.
  341. There’s just some magic in truth and honesty and openness.
  342. There’s less critical thinking going on in this country on a Main Street level – forget about the media – than ever before. We’ve never needed people to think more critically than now, and they’ve taken a big nap.
  343. There’s lots about politics I don’t feel comfortable with. To talk about the politics of future ideas is impossible in soundbite form.
  344. There’s love for your parents, your family, your spouse, your partner, your friends, but the nature of the connection you have with your child, there’s nothing like it. It has its own character and it’s so serious and so powerful, and so it’s a prism through which I see everything.
  345. There’s many a man has more hair than wit.
  346. There’s many ups and downs in the fight game.
  347. There’s massive government initiatives going around the world, and you see that there’s a real enthusiasm for genetics.
  348. There’s more than one way to get to the goal that you want to get to, but once you compromise your own principles, then you’re lost. You’re really lost.
  349. There’s my personal life, my sensitive side, and then me as a performer, sexy and energised and fun.
  350. There’s never been a moment where I sat down at my drawing board and thought, ‘I’m a pro!’
  351. There’s never going to be a decathlon that you’re going to have 10 events that your satisfied with. You’re always, always going to be dissatisfied in something, and that always draws you back to try to retry that the next time you do a decathlon. It’s like you go for the perfect 10.
  352. There’s never too much you can do.
  353. There’s no art to find the mind’s construction in the face.
  354. There’s no bigger task than protecting the homeland of our country.
  355. There’s no blueprint; getting married doesn’t make you boring, having kids doesn’t make you boring, having money doesn’t necessarily have to make you boring.
  356. There’s no borders or lines you can’t cross anymore. Everything is getting blended with everything. That’s the dope thing about music now. Some people don’t like it, more of the older people. They want to, you know, go back to old-school New York hip-hop.
  357. There’s no comparison between NPR and the propaganda that you hear from Rush or from Sean Hannity, the news movement conservatives that are just laying out, slathering out the disinformation and the lies, as I discuss in my book, ‘Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right.’
  358. There’s no evidence that I’m aware of that guns protect liberty.
  359. There’s no evidence that I’m aware of that guns reduce crime.
  360. There’s no evidence whatsoever that men are more rational than women. Both sexes seem to be equally irrational.
  361. There’s no federal government agency that ought to be immune from having to explain the potential financial impact of an action they’ve taken or intend to take. We deserve the specifics.
  362. There’s no getting around it: Writing is hard, while working with young performers is nearly always a joy.
  363. There’s no glory like those who save their country.
  364. There’s no good reason that reliably liberal states should be electing senators as friendly to Wall Street as Cory Booker.
  365. There’s no law of physics that says we have to be an unsustainable society – in fact, quite the opposite. The planet’s ready to work with us if we’re ready to think differently, but we do have to make that jump and start to do things in new ways.
  366. There’s no love more intense than the love we have for our kids – and where there is intense love, there is also intense fear lurking beneath the surface.
  367. There’s no magic line between an application and an operating system that some bureaucrat in Washington should draw.
  368. There’s no one thing that is true. They’re all true.
  369. There’s no other company that could make a MacBook Air and the reason is that not only do we control the hardware, but we control the operating system. And it is the intimate interaction between the operating system and the hardware that allows us to do that. There is no intimate interaction between Windows and a Dell notebook.
  370. There’s no other job in public life that is like chairman of the Fed.
  371. There’s no photo-shoot academy. If there was, I’d probably be kicked out.
  372. There’s no place for Depeche Mode and the Sisters of Mercy in the music I make with my band. If I was a fan, I wouldn’t want to hear that on a Black Veil Brides record. It was important for me and for the integrity of the band not to tarnish it.
  373. There’s no point having something worn on your body – that’s a big ask – unless you can give people something they really couldn’t get otherwise. It has to be qualitatively better for it to be worn.
  374. There’s no point in saying anything but the truth.
  375. There’s no present. There’s only the immediate future and the recent past.
  376. There’s no problem on the planet that can’t be solved without violence. That’s the lesson of the civil rights movement.
  377. There’s no question that you can explore aspects of yourself through roles that you play, and you get a chance to investigate yourself; that’s healthy, and it’s therapeutic in a way. But if you’re indulging yourself, exploration at the cost of the story or the project, that’s not good.
  378. There’s no racism with the Internet.
  379. There’s no real excuse for being successful enough as an actor to do what you want and then selling out. You do it pure. You don’t try to adapt it, make it commercial.
  380. There’s no really rosy scenario ahead, where climate change just doesn’t happen, but I believe we don’t have the ethical right to throw our hands up in the air and say, ‘Game over.’ Whatever pathway we choose, our descendants will be dealing with that reality for centuries to come.
  381. There’s no reason why children in inner cities or rural areas do not receive the same quality education or opportunities as those in suburbs or wealthy neighborhoods. If we truly believe in giving all citizens a chance to pursue happiness and pursue their goals, then we cannot continue to marginalize entire groups of people.
  382. There’s no regrets for me.
  383. There’s no relationship to the narrative anymore. People want their own interpretation of history. We’re compartmentalizing, forgetting what came directly before, like it’s not a big deal. That, to me, is a crime.
  384. There’s no sense in making life seem like it’s a struggle, because that doesn’t make anybody feel better.
  385. There’s no smoke without fire.
  386. There’s no such thing as a 100-year flood.
  387. There’s no such thing as a life that is not normal, or, there’s no such thing as a life that is not abnormal. We all have amazing lives; we all have very dull lives.
  388. There’s no such thing as a non-final cut director.
  389. There’s no such thing as going to a soapbox and saying, ‘The government’s corrupt,’ and not having the intelligence service see your face. In the digital world, that can be done.
  390. There’s no text that can replace a loving touch when someone we love is hurting.
  391. There’s no tradition today except initials, ‘CSI,’ ‘NCIS,’ all the rest. Even with reruns today, people don’t know there was a ‘Dick Van Dyke Show,’ or ‘Andy Griffith,’ or ‘Cheers.’
  392. There’s no tragedy in life like the death of a child. Things never get back to the way they were.
  393. There’s no trajectory to follow. Even if you were to say, ‘OK, I’m going to model my ascent based on this other person’s,’ luck and timing play such a big part that it’s really futile.
  394. There’s no way the writing staff of ‘Game of Thrones’ haven’t read ‘The Art of War.’ There’s definitely an influence on ‘Game of Thrones’ from this book in both a general way and on the character of Lord Baelish and his strategies.
  395. There’s no way to remove the observer – us – from our perceptions of the world.
  396. There’s nobody to believe in anymore, nobody to trust.
  397. There’s not a blueprint for me to follow.
  398. There’s not a liberal America and a conservative America – there’s the United States of America.
  399. There’s not a lot of light on television.
  400. There’s not a note of mine that’s worth the noting.
  401. There’s not enough competition and innovation in healthcare.
  402. There’s not enough time in each day to really focus enough attention on any one thing, but I’m doing my best. I have a great group of people who support me, and I don’t sleep a lot. It’s like I’m on a constantly spinning merry-go-round, and every day, I’m wondering when it will stop so I can get off. I love what I do, so that helps a lot.
  403. There’s not much that I haven’t done in my life, but there’s lots of things that I’d like to do better. The variety of my career has been the fun of it, and I can thank Canada for that.
  404. There’s not one thing that inspires me the most. Me and my friends joke around with each other and hang out so much that whatever makes us laugh really hard makes it into ‘Workaholics.’ But the characters that I think are funny are guys that are confidently stupid.
  405. There’s not some idea I’m going to create a work that’s going to change everybody’s consciousness.
  406. There’s nothing bad that accrues from baseball.
  407. There’s nothing funnier than the human animal.
  408. There’s nothing I don’t love about ‘Mad Men.’
  409. There’s nothing I find quite as annoying as the phrase ‘I told you so.’
  410. There’s nothing I have to hide or defend. I’m gonna live my life. And there are times when people wanna try to attack me, and I don’t know why, but they will. And that’s okay.
  411. There’s nothing in the First Amendment that even remotely talks about spending money for political contests, and to say that an individual can spend as much of his or her own money as he or she wants constitutionally without any limitation, I think is just absurd.
  412. There’s nothing in the world like the devotion of a married woman. It’s a thing no married man knows anything about.
  413. There’s nothing in this country that is a worse accusation – in America, if you accuse somebody of racism, that person has to disprove that.
  414. There’s nothing – I’ve bought everything I want. I don’t like yachts or anything; you know, I’m not a yacht person, and I’ve got pretty much the nicest plane I’d want to have.
  415. There’s nothing like doing a show at home. When you do a show in Chicago, there’s just a certain love that you don’t feel anywhere else; it’s like home base.
  416. There’s nothing like white trash at the White House.
  417. There’s nothing more American than movies.
  418. There’s nothing more fun than making fun of what’s sacred.
  419. There’s nothing more fun than mean-spirited characters.
  420. There’s nothing more fun to me than new characters and a new world.
  421. There’s nothing more important than our good health – that’s our principal capital asset.
  422. There’s nothing more raw in life than when you’re sick.
  423. There’s nothing on this green earth that a liberal progressive fears more than a black American who wants a better life and a smaller government.
  424. There’s nothing quite as powerful as people feeling they can have impact and make a difference. When you’ve got that going for you, I think it’s a very powerful way to implement change.
  425. There’s nothing sadder in this world than to awake Christmas morning and not be a child.
  426. There’s nothing sexy about skin and bone. You gotta have some junk in the trunk.
  427. There’s nothing that could get me interested in Hollywood again. And, increasingly, there’s nothing that could get me interested in the American comics industry again.
  428. There’s nothing that sells good about Allen Iverson if it’s something positive about Allen Iverson.
  429. There’s nothing the people love more than a Federal Reserve joke.
  430. There’s nothing worse than sitting down to write a novel and saying, ‘Well, okay, I’m going to do something of high artistic worth.’
  431. There’s nothing worse than walking into a hospital and seeing people sick and miserable and having a horrible treatment.
  432. There’s nothing you can know that isn’t known.
  433. There’s one thing we all share: We eat to nurture ourselves, to feel stronger.
  434. There’s only a handful of chicks in the world who can climb big walls on my level.
  435. There’s only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving, and that’s your own self.
  436. There’s only one effectively redemptive sacrifice, the sacrifice of self-will to make room for the knowledge of God.
  437. There’s only one God. Call him whatever you want.
  438. There’s only one Michael Jordan.
  439. There’s only one movie in my career I’ve had regrets with cutting it shorter, and I think some scenes maybe I shouldn’t have cut.
  440. There’s only one music video that had an emotional impact on me, and that’s ‘Hurt’ by Johnny Cash. That’s exceptional. There is no music video I can think of apart from that one that really reaches you inside.
  441. There’s only one way to have a happy marriage and as soon as I learn what it is I’ll get married again.
  442. There’s peacetime and there’s wartime, and you don’t need polarization on wartime issues. You need polarization on all other issues.
  443. There’s people constantly asking you for something on set, so the multi-tasking of motherhood transfers very well to being a director. And I think you’re compassionate.
  444. There’s people that tried to celebrate when I lost that got nothing to do with it. That’s not the sign of a champion.
  445. There’s place and means for every man alive.
  446. There’s plenty of people who’ve never gotten the opportunity to wrestle at WrestleMania. To perform there and do that, I never thought it would ever happen. I had learned to live with it. So to say I did, that is a big notch in my belt.
  447. There’s plenty of room for humor in politics, God knows, but it’s a serious business.
  448. There’s poetry in being the band that can sell out Wembley but also makes a record in a garage. I don’t like doing what people expect me to do.
  449. There’s quite a few artists that didn’t pop off until they were a little older – Rick James being one.
  450. There’s really no precedent for someone like me gaining clout in the space that I’m in – a black woman directing films in Hollywood.
  451. There’s really no secret to success. You make your own success.
  452. There’s so many politicians who have given politics a pretty poor name… their actions have been demonstrated to be part of their over-enthusiasm to get reelected.
  453. There’s so much emphasis on Daniel Day-Lewis and his process, which is appropriately his own. But I was just blown away by his generosity as an actor. He’s so giving as an actor that he just naturally commands the focus on set.
  454. There’s so much of our psychological makeup which is impermissible for us to explore because it’s inappropriate or perverse or scary. I’m interested in exploring that in myself. I try to be honest with myself about everything that I feel. I’m not saying I’m able to do that all the time, but it’s something I’m interested in.
  455. There’s so much pressure on becoming the next Muhammad Ali or Mike Tyson, and if you don’t achieve that in boxing, you’re nothing.
  456. There’s something about a Gucci loafer kicking on a fuzz pedal.
  457. There’s something about death that is comforting. The thought that you could die tomorrow frees you to appreciate your life now.
  458. There’s something about pulling out a real tape from a shelf and looking at it and knowing that ‘Everlong’ is on it, or ‘Best of You’ is on it, and it’s really special.
  459. There’s something advantageous about being a woman in rock versus, say, a woman in chemistry or construction. There’s definitely a built-in sexism across the board, but I think you’re afforded a degree of freedom in rock because, historically, the rules have been flexible.
  460. There’s something advantageous about having people underestimate your intellect, insomuch as a lot of things are revealed to you. They assume you don’t know what you’re talking about, then all of a sudden, you do. And the next thing you know, you have information you wouldn’t normally have.
  461. There’s something called religion, and it was invented a long time ago by people who felt very out of control with their lives, who didn’t know… why the sun always rose over the mountains.
  462. There’s something called, ‘resolution authority,’ which gives the government the power to takeover a failing bank – something they didn’t have pre-Lehman Brothers.
  463. There’s something happening in the world that didn’t happen before. We are acting like one big brain.
  464. There’s something imminent in the work, but the circle is only completed by the viewer.
  465. There’s something really exciting about playing someone where you’re given license to be unpredictable.
  466. There’s something so beautiful in a woman who loves her body and is confident.
  467. There’s something so romantic about being broke in New York. You gotta do it. You have to live there once without any money, and then you have to live there when you have money. Let me tell you, of the two, the latter is far better.
  468. There’s something suspicious about saying, ‘I’m just going to leave my child alone and let her pursue her passions.’ You know what? I think most 13-year-olds’ passion is sitting in front of the TV, or doing Facebook, or surfing the Internet for hours.
  469. There’s something to be said for writing in the morning. At other points in the day, you’re a bit more defensive.
  470. There’s something to be said in favor of working in isolation in the real world.
  471. There’s something very addictive about people pleasing. It’s a thought pattern and a habit that feels really, really good until it becomes desperate.
  472. There’s something very important about films about black women and girls being made by black women. It’s a reflection as opposed to an interpretation.
  473. There’s something which impels us to show our inner souls. The more courageous we are, the more we succeed in explaining what we know.
  474. There’s something wrong with a mother who washes out a measuring cup with soap and water after she’s only measured water in it.
  475. There’s such a work ethic involved in theatre that you can’t learn in L.A.
  476. There’s such an emphasis on having a character be likable. I don’t think it would be helpful if I worried about that. I mean, not everyone’s likable.
  477. There’s this great TV show we have called ‘Later… with Jools Holland’, a live-music show on Friday nights. Anyone and everyone’s been on it.
  478. There’s this group online that I frequent. It’s a group of prop crazies just like me called the Replica Props Forum, and it’s people who trade, make and travel in information about movie props.
  479. There’s this idea that because I’m a heavyweight, I’m not supposed to be in condition, that I should take advantage of the fact that I can eat. But I train and eat well, and it shows when I step on the scales.
  480. There’s this lingering philosophy that movie stars shouldn’t do TV.
  481. There’s this open question of what Google is going to be a decade or more from now. Google X isn’t the only answer to that question, but it was built as a place to do some of the exploration to find some great new problems for Google to tackle.
  482. There’s those young girls that I once was, looking up to Mia Hamm, Christine Lilly, all those players, and I know how much of an effect they had on me. Knowing that, I feel like I’m in a position where I can really help be a positive influence in girls’ lives.
  483. There’s three networks you want to be on: It’s either AMC, HBO, or Showtime.
  484. There’s three things: there’s masculinity, there’s intelligence, there’s sensitivity. You’ve got to bring those three things to a leading man’s role: masculinity, sensitivity, intelligence. In some people, there’s a little too much in the mix of one or the other.
  485. There’s too much darkness in the world. Everywhere you turn, someone is tryin’ to tear someone down in some way; everywhere you go, there’s a feeling of inadequacy, or a feeling that you’re not good enough. I want to bring a certain light to the world.
  486. There’s too much of a culture that exists out there, what I call an expectancy culture, of things being provided.
  487. There’s too much tendency to attribute to God the evils that man does of his own free will.
  488. There’s two people I would say to try to go and watch who are probably the future of tennis. One girl called Taylor Townsend, she got a wildcard from the event into Wimbledon; she’s an American girl. On the men’s side, there’s an Australian guy called Nick Kyrgios; he’s 19, and he was the number one junior in the world.
  489. There’ve been a few mother-daughter movies that are somewhat realistic. But the mother-son movies are more comical than realistic: ‘Throw Momma from the Train,’ ‘Stop! or My Mom Will Shoot.’ You don’t sit in the dark and go, ‘Oh my God, that’s my mother.’
  490. There’ve been many a season where I couldn’t get work, and I think that you learn character development and you learn how to really want what you do in life when you can’t really do it.
  491. These are all personal crises, I’m sure, that I manifest in a song format and project into physical situations. You make little stories up about how you feel. It’s as simple as that.
  492. These are bagpipes. I understand the inventor of the bagpipes was inspired when he saw a man carrying an indignant, asthmatic pig under his arm. Unfortunately, the man-made sound never equalled the purity of the sound achieved by the pig.
  493. These are not dark days: these are great days – the greatest days our country has ever lived.
  494. These are rare moments in an actor’s life, where you’re put in an environment which is so natural, and you get natural performances.
  495. These are the same people who believe, in some cases, the federal government should not play any role in providing health care to our people or protecting the environment.
  496. These capitalists generally act harmoniously and in concert to fleece the people; and now that they have got into a quarrel with themselves, we are called upon to appropriate the people’s money to settle the quarrel.
  497. These critics with the illusions they’ve created about artists – it’s like idol worship. They only like people when they’re on their way up… I cannot be on the way up again.
  498. These days cry out, as never before, for us to pay attention, so we can move through them and get our joy and pride back.
  499. These days I’m mostly familiar with two parts of L.A.: one is movie culture, and the other is Asian culture. The Westside is work, and the Eastside is Chinese – which means my friends.
  500. These days, my main guitar amps have been Magnatone. They’re beautiful. Magnatones have actual tremolo, which I recently learned about guitar amps. Often what guitar amps call vibrato is really just a volume Up and Down. But Magnatone has a true vibrato, which is pitch bending. And so, it’s just a lush sound.
  501. These little grey cells. It is up to them.
  502. These men ask for just the same thing, fairness, and fairness only. This, so far as in my power, they, and all others, shall have.
  503. These people are very unskilled in arms… with 50 men they could all be subjected and made to do all that one wished.
  504. These people live again in print as intensely as when their images were captured on old dry plates of sixty years ago… I am walking in their alleys, standing in their rooms and sheds and workshops, looking in and out of their windows. Any they in turn seem to be aware of me.
  505. These technologies can make life easier, can let us touch people we might not otherwise. You may have a child with a birth defect and be able to get in touch with other parents and support groups, get medical information, the latest experimental drugs. These things can profoundly influence life. I’m not downplaying that.
  506. These things bring you to reality as to how fragile you are; at the same moment you are doing something that nobody else is able to do. The same moment that you are seen as the best, the fastest and somebody that cannot be touched, you are enormously fragile.
  507. These times are so hard, and they’re getting even harder.
  508. They all matter to me, whether I’m working on a Sam Jackson film for a week or I’m the star of my own TV series – I take it all very seriously, and I have a healthy respect for the work in general, despite the role.
  509. They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.
  510. They always use the word ‘insult’ with me, but I don’t hurt anybody. I wouldn’t be sitting here if I did. I make fun of everybody and exaggerate all our insecurities.
  511. They are ill discoverers that think there is no land, when they can see nothing but sea.
  512. ‘They’ are the people that don’t believe in you, that say that you won’t succeed. We stay away from ‘They.’
  513. They can do without architecture who have no olives nor wines in the cellar.
  514. They condemn what they do not understand.
  515. They consider me to have sharp and penetrating vision because I see them through the mesh of a sieve.
  516. They criticize me for harping on the obvious; if all the folks in the United States would do the few simple things they know they ought to do, most of our big problems would take care of themselves.
  517. They decided to let immigrants in and I am an immigrant. They gave us a chance to participate in this country’s life and I took it.
  518. They died hard, those savage men – like wounded wolves at bay. They were filthy, and they were lousy, and they stunk. And I loved them.
  519. They do not love that do not show their love.
  520. They dream in courtship, but in wedlock wake.
  521. ‘They’ is… stay away from them, please. There is so many different definitions of ‘they.’ You might have a personal ‘they.’ They against you; they want you broken and miserable. They don’t like winners; they don’t like people who’s blessed. So everybody’s got a different ‘they.’
  522. They just expected it to you know… Paul, Steve and I could have hired our own publicist, if we wanted to, but I kind of liked the way it was more of a cult thing and those that liked it, liked it, you know what I mean?
  523. They might not need me; but they might. I’ll let my head be just in sight; a smile as small as mine might be precisely their necessity.
  524. They must often change, who would be constant in happiness or wisdom.
  525. They need help, and we have helped, and we are here to help. And we are helping, and we’re going to continue to help.
  526. They pick all of us out, and then they decide, they computerize, decide if they like it or don’t like it, and then they go home, and then they come back again because they’re not sure what they saw.
  527. They put me on television. And the whole thing broke loose. It was wild, I tell ya for sure.
  528. They say any landing you can walk away from is a good one.
  529. They say marriages are made in Heaven. But so is thunder and lightning.
  530. They say miracles are past.
  531. They say some of my stars drink whiskey, but I have found that ones who drink milkshakes don’t win many ball games.
  532. They say somebody’s ‘street smart.’ I feel like, if I got intelligence, it’s just a country smart.
  533. They say that God is everywhere, and yet we always think of Him as somewhat of a recluse.
  534. They say the world has become too complex for simple answers. They are wrong.
  535. They say Yogi Berra is funny. Well, he has a lovely wife and family, a beautiful home, money in the bank, and he plays golf with millionaires. What’s funny about that?
  536. They say you can do honest, sincere work for decades, but you’re given in general a 10-year period when what you do touches the zeitgeist – when you’re relevant. And I’m aware of that, and I don’t want my time to go by.
  537. They should go back to the medieval tradition, which is that the nave of the church is always used for local business.
  538. They should invent some way to tape-record your dreams. I’ve written songs in my dreams that were Beatles songs. Then I’d wake up and they’d be gone.
  539. They talk about the failure of socialism but where is the success of capitalism in Africa, Asia and Latin America?
  540. They taught me different was wrong.
  541. They tell us that suicide is the greatest piece of cowardice… that suicide is wrong; when it is quite obvious that there is nothing in the world to which every man has a more unassailable title than to his own life and person.
  542. They that will not apply new remedies must expect new evils.
  543. They thought I was a Surrealist, but I wasn’t. I never painted dreams. I painted my own reality.
  544. They told me my services were no longer desired because they wanted to put in a youth program as an advance way of keeping the club going. I’ll never make the mistake of being seventy again.
  545. They want to portray me as crazy, unhinged, unbalanced. OK, good, fine.
  546. They wanted to audition people for the Middle East correspondent on ‘The Daily Show.’ They wanted to hire somebody ethnic for that slot. Helms had left, Cordry had left, and they felt that they needed an ethnic face. So, I went in and auditioned, and I got the job.
  547. They were fun days, and we set the town on fire with every movie we did.
  548. They were written on cheap blue notebooks bought by poor women. I’m interested in folk tales in the way that medicine and magic in women’s stories are all kind of combined.
  549. They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.
  550. They who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.
  551. They would have failed if they were on Expert.
  552. They wrote in the old days that it is sweet and fitting to die for one’s country. But in modern war, there is nothing sweet nor fitting in your dying. You will die like a dog for no good reason.
  553. They’re different kinds of challenges depending upon what phase of life I’m in.
  554. They’re not going to have a homeless person on a poster representing New York.
  555. They’re reacting and that’s wonderful. It’s better than them sitting there doing nothing. I say make them react – do whatever’s in your power to move the audience, and if that’s where it is, and there where it is with America, sex and violence, then I say project it.
  556. They’re right to think that about me, because I’m the person most likely to sleep with my female fans, I genuinely love other women. And I think they know that.
  557. They’ve got this crazy actor who’s 82 years old up there in a suit. I was a mayor, and they’re probably thinking I know how to give a speech, but even when I was mayor I never gave speeches. I gave talks.
  558. They’ve hit us and we’ve got to hit back hard, and I’m not just talking about the terrorists.
  559. Things alter for the worse spontaneously, if they be not altered for the better designedly.
  560. Things are as they are. Looking out into it the universe at night, we make no comparisons between right and wrong stars, nor between well and badly arranged constellations.
  561. Things are more like they are now than they ever were before.
  562. Things are not as we would like them to be. There is only one way to deal with it, namely to try and be all right oneself.
  563. Things are old. Parts are old. I’m talking about ‘us’ parts. AARP-parts. Some of us were born with stronger parts than others.
  564. Things can be really empty in this world, and I don’t just mean the music world. It can become a very meaningless place if you don’t really understand: ‘who am I? Why am I here? What am I doing?’ To feel fulfilment and have a deeper level of understanding, personally, that is the most important thing.
  565. Things do not change; we change.
  566. Things do not happen. Things are made to happen.
  567. Things done well and with a care, exempt themselves from fear.
  568. Things don’t have to change the world to be important.
  569. Things from real life are the things that get people laughing.
  570. Things have changed so much. People walked away from a simple life we had in the ’20s and ’30s, and I am glad that I am able to touch that period in our lives with the shows that I do and with the music that I do.
  571. Things have got to add up to 100 points. The script is part of it, the character is part of it, the people I’m working with is the third part of it – and any combination of the three has got to add up to 100 points.
  572. Things have never been more like the way they are today in history.
  573. Things I used to get in trouble for writing at ‘SNL,’ suddenly other people like it.
  574. Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle.
  575. Things may not be immediately discernible in what a man writes, and in this sometimes he is fortunate; but eventually they are quite clear, and by these and the degree of alchemy that he possesses, he will endure or be forgotten.
  576. Things must be done by parties, not by persons using parties as tools.
  577. Things won are done, joy’s soul lies in the doing.
  578. Think big thoughts but relish small pleasures.
  579. Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try!
  580. Think not that humility is weakness; it shall supply the marrow of strength to thy bones. Stoop and conquer; bow thyself and become invincible.
  581. Think occasionally of the suffering of which you spare yourself the sight.
  582. Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy.
  583. Think of it this way, in a 1000 years who’s gonna care?
  584. Think of social media as the Internet. I can’t think of anyone betting against the Internet in 2012.
  585. Think of the Web as a big bathroom wall. And everyone has a marker.
  586. Think of what you are, you Christians. You are God’s children; you are joint heirs with Christ. The ‘many mansions’ are for you; the palms and harps of the glorified are for you. You have a share in all that Christ has and is and shall be.
  587. Think of yourself as on the threshold of unparalleled success. A whole, clear, glorious life lies before you. Achieve! Achieve!
  588. Think off-center.
  589. ‘Think simple’ as my old master used to say – meaning reduce the whole of its parts into the simplest terms, getting back to first principles.
  590. Think twice before burdening a friend with a secret.
  591. Thinking back to those earlier days, I felt I was weak when I wasn’t making movies, and then when I was, I thought I was weak as a family member.
  592. Thinking fragments reality – it cuts it up into conceptual bits and pieces.
  593. Thinking is a wonderful tool if it’s applied. Thinking, however, can not become the master. Thinking is a very bad master. If you’re dominated by thinking then your life becomes very restricted.
  594. Third–party analytics companies can reduce complication for advertisers by providing them only one SDK to add to their apps.
  595. Third party cookies are used in Google Analytics.
  596. Thirty was a big deal for me. It was the age where I reevaluated everything – how I approached life and how I thought about myself. When I look at my 20s, or when I look at any period in my life, I think about how much time I’ve wasted trying to find the right man.
  597. Thirty was so strange for me. I’ve really had to come to terms with the fact that I am now a walking and talking adult.
  598. This above all; to thine own self be true.
  599. This administration affects the everyday life of the common person.
  600. This avidity alone, of acquiring goods and possessions for ourselves and our nearest friends, is insatiable, perpetual, universal, and directly destructive of society.
  601. This award is meaningful because it comes from my fellow dealers in celluloid.
  602. This celebration here tells me that this work is not hopeless. I thank you for this teaching with all my heart and lift my glass to human solidarity, to the ultimate victory of knowledge, peace, good-will and understanding.
  603. This character feels so much like my brother. He has two children. He has a wife. He works with me. He chooses to stay in New Hampshire because he wants his kids to grow up in the school they started with. He doesn’t want them to lose friends. He is his family’s hero.
  604. This character’s entirely invented, and the woman that I interviewed wouldn’t recognize herself, or really anything about herself, in this book, which she hasn’t read, because she doesn’t read English.
  605. This Christmas, buy your children glue.
  606. This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or exercise their revolutionary right to overthrow it.
  607. This desk of mine is one at which a man may die, but from which he cannot resign.
  608. This election is about who’s going to be the next President of the United States!
  609. This film cost $31 million. With that kind of money I could have invaded some country.
  610. This getting old is something. I think I envy my dog, because my dog is sixteen, and she’s limping, and she’s still living, but she doesn’t look at me like she knows. She’s not thinking what I’m thinking. It’s a cruel trick that we all know the ending.
  611. This great, though disastrous, culture can only change as we begin to stand off and see… the inveterate materialism which has become the model for cultures around the world.
  612. ‘This guy’s a clown! He’s just all talk!’ I’ve heard that many times in my career. And then they’re sleeping in the middle of the octagon.
  613. This has always been a motto of mine: Attempt the impossible in order to improve your work.
  614. This has always been my life and no one else’s, and that’s how it’s always been since the day I came in it.
  615. This has been a trend for a long time; the days of lifetime employment are long since over.
  616. This has nothing to do with ego. It is solely about my religion and me being a devout Christian. I chose my ring name because I regard myself as A Son Of God.
  617. This inclination to hoard is deeply ingrained in me because in the past, in times of scarcity, you took what you could get.
  618. This industry has been really good to me. It’s been a great life. I’m not through yet. I’m ready when you are, Mr. DeMille.
  619. This industry kind of forces you to grow up very quickly.
  620. This is a fantastic time to be entering the business world, because business is going to change more in the next 10 years than it has in the last 50.
  621. This is a generalization, but I think women’s brains are more accessible to ideas and differences. And they can accept stuff that’s weirder. I think there are enough intelligent men out there who get it, but women will watch behavior that’s different and process it better. In general, women are less threatened by their emotions.
  622. This is a ruthless world and one must be ruthless to cope with it.
  623. This is a true story. The day after Reagan won, I was walking into the courthouse when someone said that they’d bet Reagan would appoint me U.S. attorney.
  624. This is a wonderful planet, and it is being completely destroyed by people who have too much money and power and no empathy.
  625. This is a wonderful way to celebrate an 80th birthday… I wanted to be 65 again, but they wouldn’t let me – Homeland Security.
  626. This is a world of action, and not for moping and droning in.
  627. This is boxing, not tennis. Everyone likes a bit of rivalry, it makes for a good fight.
  628. This is called prizefighting for a reason.
  629. This is certain, that a man that studieth revenge keeps his wounds green, which otherwise would heal and do well.
  630. This is how I define grace: you’re on the main stage, and it looks like it has been rehearsed 100 times, everything goes so smoothly. That’s where I get my confidence and success, from knowing that I have an edge because I know I’m prepared.
  631. This is just rap. I’m not trying to make people think I’m some sort of scientific wizard or inspirational poet.
  632. This is like a tribute to them, the people who helped me to get here. The thing that makes me feel good about the whole thing is, the fans voted me here.
  633. This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.
  634. This is my truth, tell me yours.
  635. This is no time for ease and comfort. It is time to dare and endure.
  636. This is not the first time in my life where you know going into a job that you’re going to hear in stereo what was wrong with what you did.
  637. This is one of the miracles of love: It gives a power of seeing through its own enchantments and yet not being disenchanted.
  638. This is one of those cases in which the imagination is baffled by the facts.
  639. This is said to us, even as this counterfeit president has legalized the Confederate Flag in Mississippi.
  640. This is slavery, not to speak one’s thought.
  641. This is sort of not expected, but I would love to produce a record for Missy Elliott. It would be totally different, but she makes party music. ‘Lose Control’ was my favorite song when I was in 5th or 6th grade.
  642. This is the first age that’s ever paid much attention to the future, which is a little ironic since we may not have one.
  643. This is the great object held out by this association; and the means of attaining it is illumination, enlightening the understanding by the sun of reason which will dispell the clouds of superstition and of prejudice.
  644. This is the hardest of all: to close the open hand out of love, and keep modest as a giver.
  645. This is the moment when we must build on the wealth that open markets have created, and share its benefits more equitably. Trade has been a cornerstone of our growth and global development. But we will not be able to sustain this growth if it favors the few, and not the many.
  646. This is the moment when we must come together to save this planet. Let us resolve that we will not leave our children a world where the oceans rise and famine spreads and terrible storms devastate our lands.
  647. This is the point in the show where we say, ‘Oh, what else do we have in the van that’s flammable?’
  648. This is the power of gathering: it inspires us, delightfully, to be more hopeful, more joyful, more thoughtful: in a word, more alive.

  650. This is the strangest life I’ve ever known.
  651. This is the thing you dream about when you’re a kid, even before getting into the league.
  652. This is what America is about when it comes to understanding that it is equal opportunity versus equal achievement. Each and every one of us has the opportunity for greatness in this country.
  653. This is what customers pay us for – to sweat all these details so it’s easy and pleasant for them to use our computers. We’re supposed to be really good at this. That doesn’t mean we don’t listen to customers, but it’s hard for them to tell you what they want when they’ve never seen anything remotely like it.
  654. This is what is hardest: to close the open hand because one loves.
  655. This is what we get paid to do, is to bring it every week, and I hope the guys would say I bring it every week. I mean, I love this game, and I bring energy.
  656. This island is made mainly of coal and surrounded by fish. Only an organizing genius could produce a shortage of coal and fish at the same time.
  657. This isn’t like cancer, where we don’t know the solution. Financial planning is math. We have the answers, yet it’s this huge cause of stress.
  658. This land is your land and this land is my land, sure, but the world is run by those that never listen to music anyway.
  659. This liberal progressive agenda… is the antithesis of who we are as a constitutional republic.
  660. This life, which had been the tomb of his virtue and of his honour, is but a walking shadow; a poor player, that struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more: it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
  661. This may sound a little harsh, but I don’t care about my career. Really, I don’t like actors who are always planning what they’re going to do next or always worrying about doing something that will go against the image they’ve created. To me, that’s almost like an attack of narcissism.
  662. This might sound masochistic or narcissistic, I don’t know, but when I’m not playing the game, the validations I feel about life are always through the hardships. I relate more to sadness, in a lot of ways, when I’m not playing.
  663. This morning I lay in the bathtub thinking how wonderful it would be if I had a dog like Rin Tin Tin. I’d call him Rin Tin Tin too, and I’d take him to school with me, where he could stay in the janitor’s room or by the bicycle racks when the weather was good.
  664. This multicultural approach, saying that we simply live side by side and live happily with each other has failed. Utterly failed.
  665. This must be Thursday. I never could get the hang of Thursdays.
  666. This nation is notorious for its ability to make or fake anything cheaply. ‘Made-in-China’ goods now fill homes around the world. But our giant country has a small problem. We can’t manufacture the happiness of our people.
  667. This Old Testament – containing error, folly, absurdity and immorality – is by English statute law declared to be of divine authority, a blasphemy – if there were anyone to be blasphemed – blacker and more insolent than any word ever written or penned by the most hotheaded Freethinker.
  668. This oxidation of hydrogen in stages seems to be one of the basic principles of biological oxidation.

  671. This President is going to lead us out of this recovery.
  672. This report, by its very length, defends itself against the risk of being read.
  673. This revolution, the information revoultion, is a revolution of free energy as well, but of another kind: free intellectual energy. It’s very crude today, yet our Macintosh computer takes less power than a 100-watt bulb to run it and it can save you hours a day. What will it be able to do ten or 20 years from now, or 50 years from now?
  674. This rock thing got in the way of my teaching career.
  675. This social-networking thing takes you to crazy places.
  676. This stand wasn’t because I feel like I’m being put down in any kind of way. This is because I’m seeing things happen to people that don’t have a voice: people that don’t have a platform to talk and have their voices heard and affect change. So I’m in the position where I can do that, and I’m going to do that for people that can’t.
  677. This suspense is terrible. I hope it will last.
  678. This thing comes to me, not by the hearing of the ear, but by my own personal experience: I know of a surety that Jesus manifests Himself unto His people as He doth not unto the world.
  679. This time all the historical details and things were right. But I’d written it again in third person, and people found it dry. I decided to throw that one away.
  680. This time, like all times, is a very good one, if we but know what to do with it.
  681. This was 1978, when flying was still an occasion, a special grand event that took planning and care. I worked as a TWA flight attendant then. I stood in my Ralph Lauren uniform at the boarding door and smiled at the passengers through lips coated with lipstick that perfectly matched the stripe on my jacket. Mostly, the passengers smiled back.
  682. This was not an act of terrorism, but it was an act of war.
  683. This was the way I was brought up to think of politics, that politics was to do with ethics, it was to do with responsibility, it was to do with service, so I think I was conditioned to think like that, and I’m too old to change now.
  684. This way of life is worth defending.
  685. This week, the world gathers in Beijing for the 2008 Olympic games. This is the extraordinary moment China has been dreaming of for 100 years. People have been longing for this moment, because it symbolises a turning point in China’s relationship with the outside world.
  686. This whole issue of Hindu-Muslim in India is completely overhyped.

  689. This will never be a civilized country until we spend more money for books than we do for chewing gum.

  696. Those convinced against their will are of the same opinion still.
  697. Those disputing, contradicting, and confuting people are generally unfortunate in their affairs. They get victory, sometimes, but they never get good will, which would be of more use to them.

  708. Those places I don’t understand, just doing bad food. It takes some doing. Making good pasta is so much easier than making bad stuff. It actually takes quite an effort to make poor linguine pomodora.

  710. Those that despise people will never get the best out of others and themselves.

  712. Those that won’t be counseled can’t be helped.
  713. Those who appear the most sanctified are the worst.
  714. Those who are believers in God find strength from their faith in the face of suffering. They are compelled to give sacrificially to help those in need. And they have the hope that comes from knowing that, with God by their side, the tragedy they are facing is never the final word.
  715. Those who are free of resentful thoughts surely find peace.
  716. Those who believe that they are exclusively in the right are generally those who achieve something.

  723. Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves; and under the rule of a just God, cannot long retain it.

  728. Those who educate children well are more to be honored than they who produce them; for these only gave them life, those the art of living well.
  729. Those who excel in virtue have the best right of all to rebel, but then they are of all men the least inclined to do so.
  730. Those who fight and run away, live to fight another day.
  731. Those who find ugly meanings in beautiful things are corrupt without being charming. This is a fault.
  732. Those who forget good and evil and seek only to know the facts are more likely to achieve good than those who view the world through the distorting medium of their own desires.
  733. Those who gave thee a body, furnished it with weakness; but He who gave thee Soul, armed thee with resolution. Employ it, and thou art wise; be wise and thou art happy.
  734. Those who govern, having much business on their hands, do not generally like to take the trouble of considering and carrying into execution new projects. The best public measures are therefore seldom adopted from previous wisdom, but forced by the occasion.
  735. Those who have been writing literature have not been writing life.
  736. Those who have knowledge, don’t predict. Those who predict, don’t have knowledge.

  739. Those who have never known the deep intimacy and the intense companionship of mutual love have missed the best thing that life has to give.
  740. Those who have virtue always in their mouths, and neglect it in practice, are like a harp, which emits a sound pleasing to others, while itself is insensible of the music.

  758. Those who want to be serious photographers, you’re really going to have to edit your work. You’re going to have to understand what you’re doing. You’re going to have to not just shoot, shoot, shoot. To stop and look at your work is the most important thing you can do.

  778. Thought can be so seductive and hypnotic that it absorbs your attention totally, so you become your thoughts.

  859. Tina Fey and I have 15 things in development: ‘Laverne and Shirley’, ‘Starsky and Hutch 3’, ‘Cagney and Lacey’, ‘Wonder Twins Activate From Two Hot Broads’, ‘Little House on the Prairie: The Musical: The Movie’.
  860. Tina Fey is one of my heroes.
  861. Tina Turner is someone that I admire, because she made her strength feminine and sexy. Marilyn Monroe, because she was a curvy woman. I’m drawn to things that have the same kind of silhouettes as what she wore because our bodies are similar.

  877. To a father growing old nothing is dearer than a daughter.
  878. To a generation beaten down by skyrocketing unemployment, plunging retirement savings, and mounting home foreclosures, ‘Mad Men’ offers the schadenfreude-filled message that their predecessors were equally unhappy – and that the bleakness meter in American life has always been set on high.

  884. To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.
  885. To accuse others for one’s own misfortunes is a sign of want of education. To accuse oneself shows that one’s education has begun. To accuse neither oneself nor others shows that one’s education is complete.

  892. To all those who walk the path of human cooperation war must appear loathsome and inhuman.
  893. To allow the policy question of same-sex marriage to be considered and resolved by a select, patrician, highly unrepresentative panel of nine is to violate a principle even more fundamental than no taxation without representation: no social transformation without representation.
  894. To announce that there must be no criticism of the president… is morally treasonable to the American public.
  895. To any artist, worthy of the name, all in nature is beautiful, because his eyes, fearlessly accepting all exterior truth, read there, as in an open book, all the inner truth.
  896. To apologize is to lay the foundation for a future offense.
  897. To argue that it is unconstitutional for local law enforcement to be a legitimate partner in immigration enforcement is shortsighted. It is evidence of a lack of commitment to securing our borders and a lack of appreciation for the proper role of the states in supporting federal law enforcement priorities.
  898. To arrive at a contradiction is to confess an error in one’s thinking; to maintain a contradiction is to abdicate one’s mind and to evict oneself from the realm of reality.
  899. To ask whether the mainstream media has a conservative or liberal bias is like asking whether al-Qaida uses too much oil in their hummus. It’s – I think they might use too much oil in their hummus – but it’s the wrong question.
  900. To assert in any case that a man must be absolutely cut off from society because he is absolutely evil amounts to saying that society is absolutely good, and no-one in his right mind will believe this today.
  901. To attain any assured knowledge about the soul is one of the most difficult things in the world.
  902. To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists and punk-rock performance poets.
  903. To avoid criticism, do nothing, say nothing, and be nothing.
  904. To bare our souls is all we ask, to give all we have to life and the beings surrounding us. Here the nature spirits are intense and we appreciate them, make offerings to them – these nature spirits who call us here – sealing our fate with each other, celebrating our love.
  905. To be a fashion critic is easy because you just say, ‘I love it, I hate it,’ but life is more than love and hate.

  911. To be a racing driver it’s essential you have very good eyesight, and that’s especially relevant at night. Your senses are heightened, you’re travelling over 200mph, you need to focus on that 110-metre braking point and you have to have absolute faith and commitment in your driving.
  912. To be a successful father… there’s one absolute rule: when you have a kid, don’t look at it for the first two years.
  913. To be a white kid into hip-hop meant you’d sought it out and you practiced the art. Which meant dedication and diligence, as well as removing yourself at least occasionally from your own comfort zone and circumstances, and from people who looked like you.
  914. To be able to fill leisure intelligently is the last product of civilization.
  915. To be able to give away riches is mandatory if you wish to possess them. This is the only way that you will be truly rich.
  916. To be able to have the space to sit down and write has always been my central policy.
  917. To be able to help a 13-year-old kid from the Bronx follow her dreams just by letting her know she’s not forgotten in this crazy world – that’s why I got involved with Frum Tha Ground Up.
  918. To be able to look back upon ones life in satisfaction, is to live twice.
  919. To be able to travel the world, especially to places I never thought I’d be… it’s really, you know, still fascinating for me.
  920. To be able to walk down the street and have people stop you, not just because they recognize you, but because you somehow personally touched them, it’s amazing.
  921. To be admitted to Nature’s hearth costs nothing. None is excluded, but excludes himself. You have only to push aside the curtain.

  923. To be an actress and act crazy is really fun for me, to be able to be acting like you’d never be able to act in your real life and scream and freak out. It’s an interesting test for an actor.

  928. To be awake is to be alive.
  929. To be clear, I normally climb with a rope and partner. Free-soloing makes up only a small percentage of my total climbing. But when I do solo, I manage the risk through careful preparation. I don’t solo anything unless I’m sure I can do it.
  930. To be clear, I worry as much about the impact of the Internet as anyone else. I worry about shortening attention spans, the physical cost of sedentary ‘surfing’ and the potential for coarsening discourse as millions of web pages compete for attention by appealing to our base instincts.
  931. To be clear… no one is above the law.
  932. To be conscious that you are ignorant of the facts is a great step to knowledge.

  936. To be forgotten, is to die a little.
  937. To be frank, it sometimes seems that the American idea of freedom has more to do with my freedom to do what I want than your freedom to do what you want. I think that, in Europe, we’re probably better at understanding how to balance those competing claims, though not a lot.
  938. To be free from evil thoughts is God’s best gift.
  939. To be good is noble; but to show others how to be good is nobler and no trouble.
  940. To be great is to be misunderstood.
  941. To be happy we must not be too concerned with others.
  942. To be happy when you are travelling, you need to be happy inside before you leave. A positive frame of mind will definitely enhance your travelling experience. If I’m not in a positive frame of mind then the whole thing definitely becomes more of a challenge for me.
  943. To be honest, I don’t mind talking about my experiences in life, but details aren’t for everyone.
  944. To be honest, I know that a lot of Asian parents are secretly shocked and horrified by many aspects of Western parenting.
  945. To be honest, I never really considered myself to be too much of an actress. So, whenever I get the chance to do music, I’m always, like, just in it. It’s like, ‘Oh my God, I finally get to do this. I’m so happy.’
  946. To be honest, I think bananas are a pathetic fruit.
  947. To be honest, I think kids have got a lot more going on than adults. They’ve got their heads screwed on a lot better.
  948. To be honest, I’ve always been really interested in the role of the host, whether it’s our kind of Billy Crystal-style traditional awards show host or when you have someone like Louis C.K. or a more edgy stand-up comedian do their take on a hosting role.
  949. To be honest, I’ve always had far too much freedom. I had a job when I was 10. I started living on my own when I was 17 or 18. I’ve earned my own money; I’ve traveled the world. What would I rebel against?
  950. To be honest with you, I worry about concentration of ownership in media, where you have a handful of media conglomerates largely controlling what we see, hear and read.
  951. To be honest with you, when I got into this I never thought about reviews. I never thought about what people would say about me. I was just a young guy who was excited to become a comedian and an actor and I just wanted to get to do what I got to do.
  952. To be idle is a short road to death and to be diligent is a way of life; foolish people are idle, wise people are diligent.
  953. To be immortalized in a ride is a very cooI thing.
  954. To be in any way a positive contribution, that’s all anybody wants to be. It’s all I’ve ever wanted to be. I wanted to be an artist, be a mother. You want to feel that in your life you’ve been of use, in whatever way that comes out.
  955. To be in opposition is not to be a nihilist.
  956. To be in this business and have tremendous integrity and only make distinguished choices is very tough.
  957. To be in ‘Vogue’ has to mean something. It’s an endorsement. It’s a validation.
  958. To be interested solely in technique would be a very superficial thing to me.
  959. To be intimate with a married man, when my own father cheated on my mother, is not something I could forgive. I could not look at myself in the morning if I did that. I wouldn’t be attracted to a man who would cheat on his wife.
  960. To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else – means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.

  962. To be, or not to be, that is the question.
  963. To be perfectly honest, if it was up to me, I would be invisible as an artist.
  964. To be positive is to be mistaken at the top of one’s voice.
  965. To be rejected on account of old age may or may not feel the same as being rejected on the basis of race or sex. But it is clearly unjust and dehumanizing, and the law should take it more seriously than it does.
  966. To be satisfied with a little, is the greatest wisdom; and he that increaseth his riches, increaseth his cares; but a contented mind is a hidden treasure, and trouble findeth it not.
  967. To be successful you have to be selfish, or else you never achieve. And once you get to your highest level, then you have to be unselfish. Stay reachable. Stay in touch. Don’t isolate.

  971. To be without some of the things you want is an indispensable part of happiness.
  972. To be witty is not enough. One must possess sufficient wit to avoid having too much of it.
  973. To be wronged is nothing unless you continue to remember it.
  974. To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.
  975. To become a celebrity, a name – and I’ve actually met some that speak of themselves in the third person – it’s scary. They become an object, not a human, complex, questioning thing where the cells are always changing.
  976. To become a doctor, you spend so much time in the tunnels of preparation – head down, trying not to screw up, trying to make it from one day to the next – that it is a shock to find yourself at the other end, with someone shaking your hand and asking how much money you want to make.
  977. To become truly great, one has to stand with people, not above them.

  981. To bring out a new technology for consumers first, you just had a very long road to go down to try to find people who actually would pay money for something.
  982. To build may have to be the slow and laborious task of years. To destroy can be the thoughtless act of a single day.
  983. To buy books would be a good thing if we also could buy the time to read them.
  984. To call someone like me a writer-activist suggests that it’s not the job of a writer to write about the society in which they live. But it used to be our job.
  985. To capture sound is to isolate a moment, canonize it, enter it into the historical register.
  986. To care for things when others don’t care, that’s what makes you human.
  987. To ‘choose’ dogma and faith over doubt and experience is to throw out the ripening vintage and to reach greedily for the Kool-Aid.
  988. To collect how many times users downloaded a product catalog, what would you set up ?
  989. To command is to serve, nothing more and nothing less.
  990. To compel a man to furnish funds for the propagation of ideas he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.
  991. To complain is always nonacceptance of what is. It invariably carries an unconscious negative charge. When you complain, you make yourself into a victim. When you speak out, you are in your power. So change the situation by taking action or by speaking out if necessary or possible; leave the situation or accept it. All else is madness.
  992. To conceal anything from those to whom I am attached, is not in my nature. I can never close my lips where I have opened my heart.
  993. To confine our attention to terrestrial matters would be to limit the human spirit.
  994. To conquer fear is the beginning of wisdom.
  995. To correct a natural indifference I was placed half-way between misery and the sun. Misery kept me from believing that all was well under the sun, and the sun taught me that history wasn’t everything.
  996. To create a customer experience that’s relevant and useful at every touchpoint, a search advertiser should focus on:
  997. To create a new standard, it takes something that’s not just a little bit different; it takes something that’s really new and really captures people’s imagination, and the Macintosh, of all the machines I’ve ever seen, is the only one that meets that standard.
  998. To cut short the question of the law of retaliation, we must note that even in its primitive form it can operate only between two individuals of whom one is absolutely innocent, and the other absolutely guilty. The victim, to be sure, is innocent. But can the society that is supposed to represent the victim lay claim to innocence?
  999. To deny people their human rights is to challenge their very humanity.
  1000. To deprive a man of his natural liberty and to deny to him the ordinary amenities of life is worse then starving the body; it is starvation of the soul, the dweller in the body.
