It's funny that I got to do 'On the Road' because the thing that had the biggest impact on me growing up was reading books. I was very inspired by the book and this spirit of Dean Moriarty and how envious we all are of somebody who can be that carefree.

Garrett Hedlund | funny quotes

It's funny - I read that women look to chiseled-faced guys for one-night stands and to round-faced guys for marriage. When I'm rounder in the face I like to say 'This is my long-term look.' Or 'This is my wife-and-kids look right here.'

Garrett Hedlund | funny quotes

Garrett Hedlund | marriage quotes

You might think the thinner version of yourself is going to be the most positive or confident but that's not how it is for me. When I'm over 200 pounds that's when I'm the most confident version of myself.

Garrett Hedlund | positive quotes

I remember telling my creative writing teacher that you never want to have a journal because if you lose it then someone's going to know all your secrets. And then she stopped using a journal but I always write everything down... Anytime I travel I try and fill up notepads.

Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us hovering averting our eyes and they seldom offer thanks but what we do for them is never wasted.

Which is I'm an optimist that two people can be together to work out their conflicts. And that commitment I think might be what love is because they both grow from their relationship.

Garry Shandling | dating quotes

I think it's one of the main negative emotional ingredients that fuels show business because there's so much at stake and the fear of failure looms large.

Well it's a humor strip so my first responsibility has always been to entertain the reader... But if in addition I can help move readers to thought and judgment about issues that concern me so much the better.

Garry Trudeau | humor quotes

Humor can inform and break down stigma which is a huge issue in the military.

Garry Trudeau | humor quotes

I've never taken any issue off the table for lack of suitability. Only for lack of imagination.

Medical decisions have been politicized. What doctor wants a state legislator in his consulting room?

Garry Trudeau | medical quotes

When you're young with less on the line it's easier to be audacious to experiment. So I introduced the concerns of my generation - politics sex drugs rock-and-roll etc. - to the comics page which for many years caused a rolling furor.

I like to follow my favorite team and talk sports with my band or fans. You won't believe how many musicians are sports fans. We have so much time on tour that we need these outlets for relaxation.

Garth Brooks | sports quotes

I can't really put it in one sentence because although on one hand Preacher is about faith and yes it is also about I suppose the search for God the search for faith and the manipulation and the abuse committed by figures in whom I suppose people have faith.

Garth Ennis | faith quotes

There's immense fun to be had as long as you can sort of sneak it past DC. I have been told on occasion that I need to have more respect for these characters.

If a jerk burns the flag America is not threatened democracy is not under siege freedom is not at risk.

Gary Ackerman | freedom quotes

People more than ever since I can remember are concerned about being out of step and out of line with their political party and won't cross over. There is nobody man or woman who wants to be left out and people are fearful of that. People are fearful of their leadership as well.

Gary Ackerman | leadership quotes

Politics was my third act. But I could have a fourth. I don't know what that will be yet but there will be one.

Gary Ackerman | politics quotes

Whether rich people make money or lose money they get no sympathy from the public.

Gary Ackerman | sympathy quotes

If you're truly in a band and you guys have been together for a long time there's a family bond that you have. In fact I've talked about this with therapists especially if you're talking about a relationship because when you're with somebody you're going to your family and she's alone.

Gary Allan | alone quotes

Country was about character. Country's changed because of monsters like Clear Channel who bought up all the stations and sliced them up into formats. Our demographic is now the soccer mom.

I might do 'X Factor' next year. It's looking good that I won't get the sack at Christmas.

Gary Barlow | christmas quotes

It wasn't not being famous any more or even not being a recording artist. It was having nobody who needed me no phones ringing nothing to do. Because I'm still too young to do nothing. I was only 24 when all that happened. Now at 40 I feel I've got more to give than I ever have.

Gary Barlow | famous quotes

Catholics and evangelicals need to remain allied and in solidarity against the increasingly aggressive secularism of our age.

Gary Bauer | age quotes

I have come to the conclusion that while a candidate's faith matters what's most important is how he or she applies that faith.

Gary Bauer | faith quotes

The question Americans should ask is not whether a candidate is affiliated with a particular faith but rather whether that candidate's faith makes it more likely he or she will support policies that align with their values.

Gary Bauer | faith quotes

It's important to ask candidates about their beliefs in part because politicians frequently exploit religious faith - often with the idea that voters will be more likely to unthinkingly accept certain political positions so long as they arise from religious belief.

Gary Bauer | faith quotes

For the record I believe elected officials should talk about faith. Our founders believed the moral principles of faith were indispensable to our nation's survival. The Declaration of Independence mentions God four times.

Gary Bauer | faith quotes

Republican values - strong families faith personal responsibility and freedom among others - are not unique to specific subsets of the electorate. They are universal values and it is Republicans' job to remind Americans of that fact.

Gary Bauer | freedom quotes

I'm against big bureaucracy in Washington making health care decisions. I just have an aversion to bureaucrats. But it's not just government bureaucrats. I don't like HMO bureaucrats and insurance company bureaucrats either.

Gary Bauer | government quotes

Big-government proponents embrace both the power of the federal government and the idea that millions of Americans ought to be dependent on its largesse. It's time to return to our Founders' love for small government. More is not always better.

Gary Bauer | government quotes

Republicans rarely criticize Obama for lack of empathy - in part because liberals have traditionally been seen as standing up for the weak and the vulnerable. Conservatives can be just as empathetic. But they believe that in most cases it's not government's role to be the primary dispenser of empathy.

Gary Bauer | government quotes

The Left regards the Constitution as defective and outmoded - in part because it impedes the government's ability to control institutions like churches and families which stand between the state and individuals.

Gary Bauer | government quotes

I'm against big bureaucracy in Washington making health care decisions. I just have an aversion to bureaucrats. But it's not just government bureaucrats. I don't like HMO bureaucrats and insurance company bureaucrats either.

Gary Bauer | health quotes

Having robbed children of any sense that their Father is in Heaven and that they are His creation we then launched an experiment in raising them without earthly fathers too. Having neither a Father in heaven or a father in the home many young men make gangs their families.

Gary Bauer | home quotes

The Founders believed liberty came directly from God. With their knowledge of Scripture they knew each child was made in the image of God. That is why everyone had dignity value and worth.

Gary Bauer | knowledge quotes

Obviously marriage is not a synonym for morality. But stable marriages and families do encourage moral behavior.

Gary Bauer | marriage quotes

There is something wrong with our culture when the view that marriage is between one man and one woman a view shared by half the nation is portrayed as evidence of hatred.

Gary Bauer | marriage quotes

If Republicans want to be seen as more compassionate they should continue to stand proudly for the sanctify of life and marriage. And they should do so without apologizing.

Gary Bauer | marriage quotes

Particularly black Americans many of them from quotes that I have seen and conversations I've had are sort of insulted that the civil rights movement is being hijacked - the rhetoric of the civil rights movement is being hijacked for something like same sex marriage. Black Americans tend to have a higher degree of religiosity.

Gary Bauer | marriage quotes

My argument is simple which is that for several thousand years in Western civilization marriage has been the union of one man and one woman. Research is overwhelming that children need mothers and fathers.

Gary Bauer | marriage quotes

If one is going to change the definition of marriage to be quote 'same sex ' then there is absolutely no valid argument constitutionally or rhetorically you can make against multiple people getting married. These are radical social changes.

Gary Bauer | marriage quotes

Independence doesn't - doesn't equate to moderates. Millions of independents are pro-life. Millions of independents believe marriage is between a man and a woman.

Gary Bauer | marriage quotes

Beyond politics the West is suffering from what can be called a crisis of brokenness - broken institutions broken families and broken souls.

Gary Bauer | politics quotes

Newt Gingrich is one of the brightest people in the Republican Party and he's always been a little unorthodox in his approach to politics but that's what makes him Newt Gingrich.

Gary Bauer | politics quotes

The science of life is changing hearts and minds.

Gary Bauer | science quotes

Obama often criticizes policies that place the interests of the powerful ahead of the powerless. But through his administration's support of abortion rights Obama shows his lack of empathy for society's most powerless.

Gary Bauer | society quotes

The stigma that was once attached to things society deemed unhealthy served the purpose of making them undesirable. With the stigma gone many people see little reason not to do whatever feels good at the moment.

Gary Bauer | society quotes

More and more political analysts and weak-kneed politicians are advising the historically pro-life Republican Party to abandon its pro-life stance for political gain. My first response is that if you cannot trust a party on the value of defending human life how can you trust it on issues like marginal tax rates?

Gary Bauer | trust quotes

All the culture war issues will be settled by the court.

Gary Bauer | war quotes

Still intuitive assumptions about behavior is only the starting point of systematic analysis for alone they do not yield many interesting implications.

Gary Becker | alone quotes

Why in almost all societies have married women specialized in bearing and rearing children and in certain agricultural activities whereas married men have done most of the fighting and market work?

Gary Becker | marriage quotes

I don't vote for the guy I trust. I vote for the guy who trusts me the most.

Gary Burghoff | trust quotes

I felt like I was a teacher. But nowadays I am as much a student of his. He writes a lot of what we play.

Gary Burton | teacher quotes

It's good for everyone to understand that they are to love their enemies simply because your enemies show you things about yourself you need to change. So in actuality enemies are friends in reverse.

Gary Busey | love quotes

Imagine the peace symbol. The peace symbol has three pieces in it. One piece is emotion that's your body. Another piece has spirit in it that's your fuel. Another piece has intellect in it and that's your steering wheel. You can never overdo the fuel that goes into the body which is the emotions and the steering wheel to drive it.

Gary Busey | peace quotes

I have been doing marriage counseling for about 15 years and I realized that what makes one person feel loved doesn't make another person feel loved.

Gary Chapman | marriage quotes

I think that in today's world by nature we are all self-centered. And that often leads to selfishness.

Gary Chapman | nature quotes

I was growing up listening to Queen. Freddie Mercury threw those incredible melodies into his songs.

Gary Cherone | music quotes

You need someone to tell you how to do things like hitting your marks or driving a car so it looks right or getting out of a car so it doesn't take a million years of screen time.

Gary Cole | car quotes

You can involve yourself in electronics computers puzzles... there's a lot of creativity and brain working. There's a lot to model trains that people don't realize.

Gary Coleman | science quotes

Gaming in general is a male thing. It isn't that gaming is designed to exclude women. Everybody who's tried to design a game to interest a large female audience has failed. And I think that has to do with the different thinking processes of men and women.

Gary Gygax | design quotes

There is no winning or losing but rather the value is in the experience of imagining yourself as a character in whatever genre you're involved in whether it's a fantasy game the Wild West secret agenst or whatever else. You get to sort of vicariously experience those things.

Gary Gygax | experience quotes

The essence of a role-playing game is that it is a group cooperative experience.

Gary Gygax | experience quotes

When AI approximates Machine Intelligence then many online and computer-run RPGs will move towards actual RPG activity. Nonetheless that will not replace the experience of 'being there ' any more than seeing a theatrical motion picture can replace the stage play.

Gary Gygax | intelligence quotes

Gary Hart | politics quotes

I'm finding myself really angry over spending and the deficit. I'm finding myself really angry over what's happening in the Middle East the decision to stay in Afghanistan indefinitely. I'm angry about cap and trade. And I've been on record for a long time on the failed war on drugs.

Gary Johnson | war quotes

Just as we reject racism sexism ageism and heterosexism we reject speciesism. The species of a sentient being is no more reason to deny the protection of this basic right than race sex age or sexual orientation is a reason to deny membership in the human moral community to other humans.

Gary L Francione | age quotes

There is no 'need' for us to eat meat dairy or eggs. Indeed these foods are increasingly linked to various human diseases and animal agriculture is an environmental disaster for the planet.

Great moments in science: Einstein discovers that time is actually money.

Gary Larson | science quotes

The whole kiss-and-tell thing is a negative approach that often happens in a World Cup. We will see negative stories about the players and it can affect their confidence and the overall performance of the national team on the pitch let alone the bid to actually stage the competition.

Football is a simple game. Twenty-two men chase a ball for 90 minutes and at the end the Germans always win.

Gary Lineker | men quotes

Ooh it's too embarrassing to share my innermost romantic secrets - although I have written Danielle the odd poem. If anything they are more comedic than romantic. They used to be well-received but that was before she started studying Shakespeare at drama college. Now I feel so inept.

Gary Lineker | romantic quotes

We have got too many kids around the house to have a romantic meal at home. But Danielle is a fantastic cook. She does a brilliant lasagne great roasts and a great chilli dish. She knows the way to my heart.

I would have been about seven years old when the formative years of my competitive football education began. I was playing in the local leagues around Manchester playing against lads from tough areas who had been taught they had to fight for everything.

Gary Neville | education quotes

I developed a mechanism so that whatever mistakes I made I would bounce straight back. Whatever was happening off the pitch I could put it to one side and maintain my form. Call it mental resilience or a strong mind but that is what we mean when we talk about experience in a football team.

Gary Neville | experience quotes

It is one of my pet hates when I see players who have agents who do everything for them. They don't know how to set up their own bank accounts they don't know what they are spending their money on and they can't make their own decisions.

Gary Neville | pet quotes

A coach once told me there are four factors that determine a players' performance: his tactical awareness his physical condition his technical ability and his mental strength.

Gary North | religion quotes

Strangely enough when the Sugababes' 'Freak Like Me' went to number 1 which was built around my 'Are 'Friends' Electric' song I had another song called 'Rip' go to number 1 in the Kerrang TV chart so I was pulling new people in from very different areas of musical interest.

Gary Numan | car quotes

My dad was a baggage handler at Heathrow and careful with money. He worked hard and had three jobs when I was young. I wish I'd inherited his care for money. Sadly I've grown up to be rather scatty when it comes to finances.

Gary Numan | dad quotes

Before breaking into music I had various jobs: forklift driver driving a courier. But I was forced into working rather than doing it off my own bat because that was my dad's way: you got a job and paid your way.

Gary Numan | dad quotes

I have one brother John an airline pilot who is seven years younger. He's adopted though we're still blood related - he's my cousin. My parents couldn't have any more children after me so when Dad's brother died they adopted John then just a baby.

Gary Numan | dad quotes

I met Gemma my wife when she was 12. She had a schoolgirl crush on me and her dad had arranged for her to meet me. Later she started coming to my concerts but I only got to know her well after her mother died. I rang to see how she was and that's how it started.

Gary Numan | dad quotes

If I thought that any of this was pre ordained then it takes away any kind of incentive to struggle or to put up with things to reach for those impossible dreams all those dramatic things.

Gary Numan | dreams quotes

I became famous so quickly and so young - it was daunting. I was immature and I used to say some really stupid things in interviews. I never smiled on stage so I looked really serious but it was because I hated my teeth and was incredibly nervous.

Gary Numan | religion quotes

I'm very into science-fantasy that kind of swordfights and magic and technology thing.

Gary Oldman | anger quotes

My passion and energy get mistaken for anger.

Gary Oldman | anger quotes

I drank for about 25 years getting over the loss of my father and I took the anger out on myself. I did a good job at beating myself up at sometimes. I don't drink anymore but my alcoholic head occasionally says different. 'Nil By Mouth' was a love letter to my father because I needed to resolve some issues in order to be able to forgive him.

Gary Oldman | anger quotes

What other people think of me is none of my business.

Gary Oldman | business quotes

Change is vital to any actor. If you keep playing lead after lead you're really gonna dry up. Because all those vehicles wean you away from the truths of human behaviour.

Gary Oldman | change quotes

And of course I've got kids of my own now and they love me being in the Harry Potter films. I'm now part of a phenomenon. You become incredibly cool to your kids and you get a young fan base. So you became the cool dad at school. You're suddenly hip.

Gary Oldman | cool quotes

Rather like Batman I embody the themes of the movie which are the values of family courage and compassion and a sense of right and wrong good and bad and justice.

Gary Player | success quotes

Really each era has its own false nostalgia. We all put a picket fence up around something. For my generation it was the '50s and for other generations it will be something else. Change is scary for everyone as is complexity contradiction and an uncertain future.

Gary Ross | change quotes

I don't understand people who dream in black and white. I just don't get it. My dreams have always been vivid color.

Gary Ross | dreams quotes

History is full of examples of people who clamp down after they began to enjoy too much freedom. Freedom can lead to instability anarchy and confusion. So there can be a moral counter-revolution.

Gary Ross | movies quotes

Family entertainment is really very necessary in our culture. Look how profitable they are. It's almost not discretionary. You need to take your family to the movies.

Gary Ross | movies quotes

I think movies do play a valuable role in turning people on to the act of reading. I think that phenomenon just creates readers. At first they're going to love 'Harry Potter ' or they may love 'The Hunger Games ' but after that they're going to love the act of reading and wonder 'What else can I read?'

Gary Ross | movies quotes

I love all the old classic Disney movies. 'Pinocchio.' There are obviously tons of them that anybody growing up on that stuff takes with them their whole lives and I'm an admirer of a lot of classic animation and fairy tales.

Gary Ross | movies quotes

Do more than is required. What is the distance between someone who achieves their goals consistently and those who spend their lives and careers merely following? The extra mile.

Gary Ryan Blair | business quotes

Your mind while blessed with permanent memory is cursed with lousy recall. Written goals provide clarity. By documenting your dreams you must think about the process of achieving them.

Gary Ryan Blair | dreams quotes

Creative risk taking is essential to success in any goal where the stakes are high. Thoughtless risks are destructive of course but perhaps even more wasteful is thoughtless caution which prompts inaction and promotes failure to seize opportunity.

Gary Ryan Blair | failure quotes

My dad's a bodybuilder. My whole life I've been taught to train the hard way. I believe in earning strength not buying it. My grandfather raised me old school: In baseball you work for whatever you get.

Gary Sheffield | dad quotes

If I'm coming in at 4:00 in the morning and my kids have been in bed since 8:00 9:00 that's not setting a good example. The responsibility that I have kids inside my household has made me realize now that I have to be an example.

Gary Vaynerchuk | age quotes

IQ is a commodity data is a commodity. I'm far more interested in watching people interact at a restaurant with their smartphone. We can all read 'Tech Crunch ' 'Ad Age.'

Gary Vaynerchuk | amazing quotes

Okay let's talk about cartoon labels for half a second - some people think anything with a dog or a car or a colorful alien is garbage which is not true. Look at Big Moose Red. It's like a $6 wine with a cheesy label and it's actually a solid wine.

Gary Vaynerchuk | car quotes

I am surprised by how not-adopted the video reply has been. What keeps other people from doing it I think is that they think a video comes across as 'I'm cool look at how many e-mails I get.' That perception doesn't scare me because I know who I am.

Gary Vaynerchuk | cool quotes

People are more comfortable learning about wine because now they can just Google you know 'Soave ' and say 'Oh O.K. cool.'

Gary Vaynerchuk | cool quotes

My dad is like a cactus - introverted and tough. I'm a people person like my mom but I got my competitiveness from my dad. He came to this country from Belarus with nothing and built a real business. He's my hero for giving me that need to run a business and for having enormous confidence in me.

Gary Vaynerchuk | happiness quotes

I'm not afraid to call a wine that tastes like Skittles or green peppers mixed with orange marmalade. I'll say 'It tastes like chicken.' I mean that's not what people think of when they think of wine but that's what it tastes like to me and it hits home.

Gary Vaynerchuk | home quotes

Even though I'm a hype man myself I like the practicality of it all. People who understand how to turn a profit. At the end of the day this is still business so I'm looking for real practical knowledge of how to actually make money not necessarily raise it.

Gary Vaynerchuk | sports quotes

Gaston Bachelard | imagination quotes

Being on Oprah? You realize that there are a couple of types of audience members. There are like the cult people in the audience who are just crying before she gets on. And then there are the people who are playing it cool. I definitely was somewhere in the middle.

Genevieve Gorder | cool quotes

That was always my frustration with so many of these shows because design is not an ambush... it's a relationship. You have to know how people move and live and work to be able to design for them.

Design can have such a positive impact on the way people live and on their relationships and moods.

Genevieve Gorder | relationship quotes

I remember being in Atlantic City once when I was 18 or 19 and a sea of people were screaming and pulling their hair because I was there. It was weird. Nobody deserves adulation like that. I tried to explain it to my kids once. I said 'Mommy used to be kind of cool kind of like a Britney Spears.'

Genie Francis | cool quotes

I've always loved interior design.

Genie Francis | design quotes

Most of my actor friends don't believe it's possible to let go of it and be happy and for a while that was true for me. For the first two years I ached every day. And I had such bad dreams. But then I made the decision to start working on my little shop and all that went away.

Genie Francis | dreams quotes

I would stay on but 'General Hospital' honestly doesn't seem to want that relationship with this character at the moment. They want little short doses during sweeps periods.

Gennifer Flowers | relationship quotes

I have never lied about my relationship with Bill Clinton. The only proven liar at this point and the only admitted liar is Bill Clinton not Gennifer Flowers not Kathleen Willey not Paula Jones and not Monica Lewinsky at this point. He is the only proven liar.

Gennifer Flowers | relationship quotes

You know that I am living proof that the American Dream is real. Growing up our congressman cut through government bureaucratic red tape to help my mom buy our first house. That's the kind of congressman I'll be.

Geoffrey Fisher | alone quotes

I have asked myself once or twice lately what was my natural bent. I have no doubt at all: It is to look at each day for the evil of that day and have a go at it and that is why I have never failed to have an acute interest in each morning's letters.

Geoffrey Fisher | morning quotes

Geoffrey Fisher | society quotes

I did not want to put myself on the line as an Australian playing Britain's greatest comic actor. The fans of Sellers are obsessive possessive - and aggressive. I did not want to risk their anger - or my own reputation.

Geoffrey Rush | anger quotes

I went to England in the '70s and I was in my early 20s. There was still a residue of that era of being an underclass or colonial. I assume it must have been a more aggressive and prominent attitude 40 years before that because Australia internationally wasn't regarded as having much cultural value. We were a country full of sheep and convicts.

Geoffrey Rush | attitude quotes

Within our culture every school has a swimming pool. We lived on the coast. People swam in the surf. It's a very sporty nation and at that particular time anyone who had an artistic bent was very much an outsider.

Geoffrey Rush | dad quotes

You had to be into sport and sad to say I'm a traitor to my country because I don't have a sporting bone in my body.

Geoffrey Rush | sad quotes

Geoffrey Rush | travel quotes

The artist is not responsible to any one. His social role is asocial... his only responsibility consists in an attitude to the work he does.

Georg Brandes | beauty quotes

But I did not find any positive inspiration in my studies until I approached my nineteenth year.

George Nethercutt | computers quotes

Students who are interested in learning about the environment should not be dissuaded from doing so but only if they have proved their proficiency in other basic courses such as U.S. history.

George Orwell | future quotes

If you want a vision of the future imagine a boot stamping on a human face - forever.

Men are only as good as their technical development allows them to be.

George Orwell | happiness quotes

Men can only be happy when they do not assume that the object of life is happiness.

George Osborne | education quotes

I had the closest thing I have ever had to an out-of-body experience lying in bed one morning. I turned on the 'Today' programme and item four on the news was: 'The shadow chancellor has ruled himself out of the leadership.' I lay there thinking that's interesting then I realised it was me.

George Osborne | experience quotes

There was a real fear that a euro-zone bank might fail that we'd have a sovereign debt problem in one of the larger European economies. That's dissipated thanks largely to the action of the European Central Bank.

George Osborne | fear quotes

If you want to change the way your banking system is regulated if you want to learn the mistakes of what's gone wrong then you have to change your government.

George Osborne | morning quotes

I understand the damage the expenses crisis has done to Parliament and the paramount importance of restoring trust in our politics.

At times of distress we all like to recall the advice of fathers and mothers. The best advice my father gave me was to keep faith and deep confidence in the potential of the Greek people nurture the belief that they can do things.

George Papandreou | faith quotes

I think there is a heritage which I'm proud of which is a fight for democracy a fight for social justice a fight for freedom. My grandfather went to jail or exile six times in his life fighting for his principles for democracy or for his country. And my father twice.

George Papandreou | freedom quotes

The Marshall Plan was after destruction and the U.S. came to our help and obviously this was very very important for the future of Europe. I think now we have all the capabilities of doing it on our own and in a sense we have to.

George Papandreou | politics quotes

There is this concept of politics as a dirty game. It's a difficult game but it doesn't have to be dirty. I think this is what we need to bring to politics. I think politics around the world has very often been captured by big interests - 'lobbies' they call them in the States.

George Papandreou | politics quotes

The fact that we're going through a crisis is an opportunity for Europe to be more coordinated and more integrated. We're actually talking about a European Monetary Fund or euro bonds about guarantees for countries about economic governance in the European Union. That shows the strength of Europe.

George Papandreou | strength quotes

After the tragedy New Yorkers are more united than ever in their vision as well as in appreciation what living in freedom means - and that if we stand together we can accomplish anything.

George Porter | happiness quotes

When the honour is given to that scientist personally the happiness is sweet indeed. Science is on the whole an informal activity a life of shirt sleeves and coffee served in beakers.

George Porter | happiness quotes

Tonight I should like to thank all those who have shared my work and to acknowledge the debt that I owe to my wife whose encouragement to put research before all other things has been a great strength to me.

We try we fail we posture we aspire we pontificate - and then we age shrink die and vanish.

George Saunders | age quotes

My habit would have been to veer towards the dark - to prove I was something edgy or maybe to prove that I was cognisant of the dark side. Now with age and confidence I can say yeah that's true but I am cognisant of the fact that people can do things well. And can be more loving than you expect.

George Saunders | age quotes

I still believe that capitalism is too harsh and I believe that even within that there is a lot of satisfaction and beauty if you happen to be one of the lucky ones although that doesn't eradicate the reality of the suffering. It's all true at once kind of humming and sublime.

George Saunders | beauty quotes

I tend to foster drama via bleakness. If I want the reader to feel sympathy for a character I cleave the character in half on his birthday. And then it starts raining. And he's made of sugar.

George Saunders | birthday quotes

I'm finding as I get older that I'm not much of a believer in redemption. I mean I believe in redemption in real life - redemption does happen and it's cool when it does - but I find myself getting leery of my desire for it in stories (especially my own).

George Saunders | cool quotes

The cool parts - the parts that have won Dubai its reputation as 'the Vegas of the Middle East' or 'the Venice of the Middle East' or 'the Disney World of the Middle East if Disney World were the size of San Francisco and out in a desert' - have been built in the last ten years.

George Saunders | cool quotes

If death is in the room it's pretty interesting. But I would also say that I'm interested in getting myself to believe that it's going to happen to me. I'm interested in it because if you're not you're nuts. It's really de facto what we're here to find out about.

George Saunders | death quotes

We have that illusion that we are 'deciding' what to make a character do in order to 'convey our message' or something like that. But at least in my experience you are often more like a river-rafting guide who's been paid a bonus to purposely steer your clients into the roughest possible water.

George Saunders | experience quotes

If you haven't read you don't have the voice. The lack of voice eliminates experience.

George Saunders | experience quotes

George Saunders | family quotes

The scariest thought in the world is that someday I'll wake up and realize I've been sleepwalking through my life: underappreciating the people I love making the same hurtful mistakes over and over a slave to neuroses fear and the habitual.

It's funny with fiction - once you cut something it hasn't happened anymore.

George Saunders | funny quotes

George Saunders | funny quotes

The best thing that ever happened to me is that nothing happened in writing. I ended up working for engineering companies and that's where I found my material in the everyday struggle between capitalism and grace. Being broke and tired you don't come home your best self.

George Saunders | intelligence quotes

Whatever your supposed politics are - left right - if you put it in a human connection most people will rise to the occasion and feel the human pain in a way that they might not if it was presented in a more conceptual way.

George Saunders | politics quotes

If you think of a work of fiction as a kind of scale model of the world then the positive valences - where things turn out better than you thought they would - ought to be in there somewhere too.

George Saunders | positive quotes

I turned 54 this year and I find myself feeling like I'm in a bit of a race to get down on paper the way I really feel about life - or the way it has presented to me. And because it has presented to me very beautifully this is hard. It is technically very hard to show positive manifestations.

George Saunders | positive quotes

I started out in engineering. I was a geophysical engineer. Throughout the course of my life I've done a lot of strange jobs and the effect has been to make me think a little more skeptically about our capitalist society.

George Saunders | society quotes

I tend to foster drama via bleakness. If I want the reader to feel sympathy for a character I cleave the character in half on his birthday. And then it starts raining. And he's made of sugar.

George Saunders | sympathy quotes

Fiction is a kind of compassion-generating machine that saves us from sloth. Is life kind or cruel? Yes Literature answers. Are people good or bad? You bet says Literature. But unlike other systems of knowing Literature declines to eradicate one truth in favor of another.

George Strait | morning quotes

I don't mind traveling that much when I can go somewhere and stay there for a while but touring is different. You rarely see anything. You get there early in the morning and you're resting all day and you go in and do a sound check and you do the show and then bam you're gone.

Giada De Laurentiis | food quotes

I think children learning to cook can be such a wonderful thing. It can help build confidence make them feel good about themselves. It helped me build my ego and even start to get acceptance at school. I'd bring things to class that I'd cooked at home.

Giada De Laurentiis | home quotes

I think it can be hard for any man to sometimes be upstaged by his wife. So when I'm home I work very hard to be Todd's wife and Jade's mother. I have no problem going back to those traditional roles. I try to be Giada the young girl that he met 20 years ago and fell in love with.

Every time I think I have something under control it changes and I don't have it under control. I think it takes several years to get there. Jade is 19 months old so right now I'm on alert all the time. And as a mom I think you're constantly worrying about things.

I like things that are kind of eclectic when one thing doesn't go with another. That's why I love Rome. The town itself is that way.
