The greatest achievement was at first and for a time a dream. The oak sleeps in the acorn the bird waits in the egg and in the highest vision of the soul a waking angel stirs. Dreams are the seedlings of realities.

James Allen | time quotes

A man has to learn that he cannot command things but that he can command himself that he cannot coerce the wills of others but that he can mold and master his own will: and things serve him who serves Truth people seek guidance of him who is master of himself.

James Allen | truth quotes

The man who cannot endure to have his errors and shortcomings brought to the surface and made known but tries to hide them is unfit to walk the highway of truth.

James Anthony Froude | alone quotes

Wild animals never kill for sport. Man is the only one to whom the torture and death of his fellow creatures is amusing in itself.

James Anthony Froude | death quotes

To deny the freedom of the will is to make morality impossible.

James Anthony Froude | freedom quotes

James Anthony Froude | science quotes

Superior strength is found in the long run to lie with those who had right on their side.

The primary distinction of the artist is that he must actively cultivate that state which most men necessarily must avoid the state of being alone.

James Baldwin | alone quotes

The South is very beautiful but its beauty makes one sad because the lives that people live here and have lived here are so ugly.

James Baldwin | beauty quotes

The paradox of education is precisely this that as one begins to become conscious one begins to examine the society in which he is being educated.

James Baldwin | education quotes

An identity would seem to be arrived at by the way in which the person faces and uses his experience.

James Baldwin | experience quotes

But the relationship of morality and power is a very subtle one. Because ultimately power without morality is no longer power.

James Baldwin | relationship quotes

The South is very beautiful but its beauty makes one sad because the lives that people live here and have lived here are so ugly.

James Beattie | jealousy quotes

Be ignorance thy choice where knowledge leads to woe.

James Beattie | knowledge quotes

No jealousy their dawn of love overcast nor blasted were their wedded days with strife each season looked delightful as it past to the fond husband and the faithful wife.

James Beattie | wedding quotes

Accidents happen whether they're car accidents friendly fire drug overdoses. Accidents happen and they're tragic. It's like a bomb that goes off and pieces of shrapnel rip into the flesh of the family. It's the families that need the compassion because everywhere they walk every day someone reminds them of their loss.

James Belushi | car quotes

I don't deal with death very well. My brother John Candy my dad my mom Brandon Tartikoff just a couple of weeks ago. I mean you lose a lot of people in your life and that's one thing I am constantly working on - pain management.

James Belushi | dad quotes

I don't know if there is a gene for comedy but my dad was a very funny man. He just didn't know it. He was a naturally funny character and when my brother and I would laugh at things he said and did he would say 'What do you think is so funny?'

James Belushi | dad quotes

I don't deal with death very well. My brother John Candy my dad my mom Brandon Tartikoff just a couple of weeks ago. I mean you lose a lot of people in your life and that's one thing I am constantly working on - pain management.

James Belushi | mom quotes

When Whitney Houston died I felt great sadness. My sadness of course was about our collective loss - when you listened to this nightingale sing your body would drop into a chair your head would tilt up a small smile would creep across your face and inside you knew that there was a higher power somewhere: gifted beautiful spiritual.

James Belushi | smile quotes

Dubstep has everything for me. Rhythm sound design heartfelt emotion - all in one place.

James Blake | design quotes

I think when you're learning an instrument you are restricted because much of it is the noise of individual theory and your ability to play the instrument.

James Blake | learning quotes

In a way song writing can almost be detrimental because suddenly you find an outlet that is a kind of cheating. You don't need to have direct communication. You can say 'I can't describe it to you but I will record it and send it to you.'

James Blunt | communication quotes

You can't break my spirit it's my dreams you take.

James Blunt | dreams quotes

It is amazing to think after all that has happened in this country in the last few years the last few decades that so many people have this blind faith that government is our friend and therefore so we don't need protections against it.

James Bovard | amazing quotes

The vision that the founding fathers had of rule of law and equality before the law and no one above the law that is a very viable vision but instead of that we have quasi mob rule.

James Bovard | equality quotes

It is amazing to think after all that has happened in this country in the last few years the last few decades that so many people have this blind faith that government is our friend and therefore so we don't need protections against it.

James Bovard | faith quotes

As long as enough people can be frightened then all people can be ruled. That is how it works in a democratic system and mass fear becomes the ticket to destroy rights across the board.

James Bovard | fear quotes

Part of the reason that the government's fear mongering is succeeding is because so many people are so ignorant that it is easier for government to frighten people in submission.

James Bovard | fear quotes

It is hard to know how many people do but given that the people are so docile towards the rulers nowadays very few Americans show the passion for freedom that our forefathers had.

James Bovard | freedom quotes

It is unfortunate that Americans are no longer aware of what the constitution says and what their rights are. Because of that we are often very passive about what happens when the government violates those rights.

James Bovard | government quotes

The more expansive government is the more perils people face in daily lives be it from IRS agents or from child support services or from other agencies that often have little or no legal restraints on their power.

James Bovard | legal quotes

It is important to recognize and politics positive thinking is often the slaves' virtue - something that people do to con themselves about the burden and change being placed upon them.

Patriotism is the religion of hell.

James Branch Cabell | patriotism quotes

Poetry is man's rebellion against being what he is.

James Branch Cabell | poetry quotes

The fact is I am in my third marriage and I do not believe in divorce. But I was half the problem I guarantee you. More than half the problem. I couldn't negotiate with the other women.

James Brolin | marriage quotes

I believe that anybody who gets married should go to a counselor for months before the wedding. I think that's going to save guys a lot of money and the ladies a lot of heartbreak.

Poetry for me is as much a spiritual practice as sexual ecstasy is.

James Broughton | poetry quotes

Being identified as a poet in France or Denmark or India one is greeted with gracious respect.

James Broughton | respect quotes

Trusting your individual uniqueness challenges you to lay yourself open.

James Broughton | trust quotes

Some artists shrink from self-awareness fearing that it will destroy their unique gifts and even their desire to create. The truth of the matter is quite opposite.

James Broughton | truth quotes

James Brown | funny quotes

I just thank God for all of the blessings.

James Brown | god quotes

I used to think like Moses. That knocked me down for a couple years and put me in prison. Then I start thinking like Job. Job waited and became the wealthiest and richest man ever 'cause he believed in God.

James Brown | god quotes

Any new financial order for the world must tackle the three chief challenges of our age.

James Buchan | age quotes

There are signs that the age of petroleum has passed its zenith. Adjusted for inflation a barrel of crude oil now sells for three times its long-run average. The large western oil companies which cartellised the industry for much of the 20th century are now selling more oil than they find and are thus in the throes of liquidation.

James Buchan | age quotes

Rarely in modern times has there been such a revolution in commercial sentiment as occurred in 2008 or such a display in government and business of panic and helplessness.

James Buchan | business quotes

Profits in business always depend on the rate of interest: the higher the interest the higher the rate of profit required.

James Buchan | business quotes

Up until the Depression recession had a moral character: it was supposed to purge the body economic of the greed and excess that attends a business expansion.

James Buchan | business quotes

Even before he came to power in 1997 Gordon Brown promised to change the accounts to parliament from simple litanies of cash in and cash out to a more commercial system that took notice of the public property the departments were using. This system is known as resource accounting.

James Buchan | change quotes

Nature is not simply a technical or economical resource and human beings are not mere numbers. To suggest that one can somehow align all the squabbling institutions of science environmental management government and diplomacy in an alliance of convenience to regulate the global climate seems to me optimistic.

James Buchan | environmental quotes

In rising financial markets the world is forever new. The bull or optimist has no eyes for past or present but only for the future where streams of revenue play in his imagination.

James Buchan | future quotes

For 50 years nuclear power stations have produced three products which only a lunatic could want: bomb-explosive plutonium lethal radioactive waste and electricity so dear it has to be heavily subsidised. They leave to future generations the task and most of the cost of making safe sites that have been polluted half-way to eternity.

James Buchan | future quotes

Rarely in modern times has there been such a revolution in commercial sentiment as occurred in 2008 or such a display in government and business of panic and helplessness.

To suggest that one can somehow align all the squabbling institutions of science environmental management government and diplomacy in an alliance of convenience to regulate the global climate seems to me optimistic.

James Buchan | government quotes

The truth is of course that history is not completed in modern commerce any more than philosophy is perfected in political economy. In other words there is nothing timeless or God-given about filling stations and penicillin and plastic bags.

James Buchan | history quotes

The year 2008 was a reminder to those who had forgotten that there is such a thing as history and that the cycle of famine and feast in commerce first identified in antiquity and well understood in the Middle Ages was not suddenly abolished in modern times.

James Buchan | history quotes

If good history is dispassionate history it must naturally wait until the passions of the period subside.

James Buchan | history quotes

One of the consequences of the Iranian revolution has been an explosion of history. A country once known only from British consular reports and intrepid travelogues is now awash with historical documents letters diaries grainy video weblogs and secret police files of questionable authenticity.

James Buchan | history quotes

Bulls don't read. Bears read financial history. As markets fall to bits the bears dust off the Dutch tulip mania of 1637 the Banque Royale of 1719-20 the railway speculation of the 1840s the great crash of 1929.

James Buchan | history quotes

Cause and effect the riddle of all history is a particular devil in financial history and never more so than today where entire classes of security are collapsing not on public exchanges and stock-tickers but because there are no markets to establish prices this side of nothing.

James Buchan | history quotes

For all their current prestige Osama bin Laden and the suicide bombers are still regarded in all but the most desperate districts of Gaza or Peshawar as romantics with little chance of more than symbolic victories however bloody and brutal. That gives both the Middle East and the West a small and distant hope of security.

James Buchan | hope quotes

In rising financial markets the world is forever new. The bull or optimist has no eyes for past or present but only for the future where streams of revenue play in his imagination.

James Buchan | imagination quotes

Because bankers measure their self-worth in money and pay themselves a lot of it they think they're fine fellows and don't need to explain themselves.

James Buchan | money quotes

To give money to a woman - and here I must speak as a man - is to deny her special quality her irreplaceability and reduce her unique amiability to a commodity. Money takes away her name while transforming her lover into a nameless customer of a market of appetites.

James Buchan | money quotes

To make a love story you need a couple of young people but to reflect on the nature of love you're better off with old ones. That is a fact of life and literature - and of the novel ever since it fell in love with love in the 18th century.

James Buchan | nature quotes

Were there peace and justice in the Middle East the Arabs would no more need their tinhorn dictators than they would their corpulent princes.

James Buchan | peace quotes

Is there any purpose to translating poetry? A poem does not contain information of importance like a signpost or a warning notice.

James Buchan | poetry quotes

We read too much Shakespeare at school and view our parliamentary politics as dynastic drama in which an impatient crown prince frets at his long subordination and begins to scheme for the throne he knows he merits was promised and has earned.

James Buchan | politics quotes

Whatever else it was Adolf Hitler's short-lived regime was also a colossal industrial process by which the wealth and productive power of much of Europe was wrenched from its normal purposes and converted into a machine for killing.

James Buchan | power quotes

Of all the failed technologies that litter the onward march of science - steam carriages zeppelins armoured trains - none has been so catastrophic to prosperity as the last century's attempt to generate electricity from nuclear fission.

James Buchan | science quotes

Nature is not simply a technical or economical resource and human beings are not mere numbers. To suggest that one can somehow align all the squabbling institutions of science environmental management government and diplomacy in an alliance of convenience to regulate the global climate seems to me optimistic.

James Buchan | science quotes

In modern society where most people live in cities and where both needs and wishes are absolved through the same remote agency - money - the distinction between wishes and needs has altogether vanished.

James Buchan | society quotes

The world dominion of western thought forms of organisation technology and military force is not God-given nor eternal nor greatly appreciated by the rest of the world.

James Buchan | technology quotes

The west has a great deal to answer for in the Middle East from Britain's belated empire-building after the First World War to the US and British policy that condemns modern Iraq to the material and social squalor of a half-century ago.

James Buchan | war quotes

Since the attack on the United States on September 11 2001 and the US retaliation in Afghanistan and Iraq there must be few people who have not felt a twinge of nostalgia for the cold war.

All the mathematical sciences are founded on relations between physical laws and laws of numbers so that the aim of exact science is to reduce the problems of nature to the determination of quantities by operations with numbers.

James C Maxwell | science quotes

Some guys say beauty is only skin deep. But when you walk into a party you don't see somebody's brain. The initial contact has to be the sniffing.

James Caan | beauty quotes

I never saw my dad cry. My son saw me cry. My dad never told me he loved me and consequently I told Scott I loved him every other minute. The point is I'll make less mistakes than my dad my sons hopefully will make less mistakes than me and their sons will make less mistakes than their dads.

James Caan | dad quotes

I think we have to believe in things we don't see. That's really important for all of us whether it's your religion or Santa Claus or whatever. That's pretty much what it's about.

James Caan | religion quotes

Perhaps people and kids especially are spoiled today because all the kids today have cars it seems. When I was young you were lucky to have a bike.

James Cagney | car quotes

You know the period of World War I and the Roaring Twenties were really just about the same as today. You worked and you made a living if you could and you tired to make the best of things. For an actor or a dancer it was no different then than today. It was a struggle.

James Cagney | war quotes

A leader must have the courage to act against an expert's advice.

James Callaghan | courage quotes

James Larkin | religion quotes

No men and women of the Irish race we shall not fight for England. We shall fight for the destruction of the British Empire and the construction of an Irish republic.

James Larkin | women quotes

Concrete poets continue to turn out beautiful things but to me they're more visual than oral and they almost really belong on the wall rather than in a book. I haven't the least idea of where poetry is going.

James Laughlin | poetry quotes

I think that concrete poetry seems to have as far as I can see come to a kind of a dead end. It doesn't seem to be going any further than it went in its high period of about five or six years ago.

James Laughlin | poetry quotes

I think that is where poetry reading becomes such an individual thing. I mean I have friend who like poets who just don't say anything to me at all I mean they seem to me rather ordinary and pedestrian.

James Laughlin | poetry quotes

I think there's no excuse for the American poetry reader not knowing a good deal about what is going on in the rest of the world.

James Laughlin | poetry quotes

I think we will always have the impulse towards visual poetry with us and I wouldn't agree with Bly that it's a bad thing. It depends on the ability of the individual poet to do it well and to make a shape which is interesting enough to hold your attention.

James Laughlin | poetry quotes

Of course a poem is a two-way street. No poem is any good if it doesn't suggest to the reader things from his own mind and recollection that he will read into it and will add to what the poet has suggested. But I do think poetry readings are very important.

James Laughlin | poetry quotes

We don't attempt to have any theme for a number of the anthology or to have any particular sequence. We just put in things that we like and then we try to alternate the prose and the poetry.

James Laughlin | poetry quotes

Then of course there are those sad occasions when a poet or a writer has not grown and one has to let them go because they're just not making headway. But we have a very clear personal relationship with the authors.

James Laughlin | relationship quotes

There are numerous cases of that where one of our writers discovers another writer whom he likes and we then take that book on. So it's a very close relationship. We can do that because we're so small.

James Laughlin | relationship quotes

Then of course there are those sad occasions when a poet or a writer has not grown and one has to let them go because they're just not making headway. But we have a very clear personal relationship with the authors.

James Laughlin | sad quotes

We decry violence all the time in this country but look at our history. We were born in a violent revolution and we've been in wars ever since. We're not a pacific people.

James Lee Burke | history quotes

More and more couples are having this negotiation or discussion but I'm still amazed at the number who aren't and where the cultural norm sort of kicks in and they just assume that mom's got to be the one who stays home not dad.

James Levine | amazing quotes

A lot of people get impatient with the pace of change.

James Levine | change quotes

It has to be able to play at the maximum expression and communication in every style and the only way you can do that is - like Verdi said - working with a file every day little by little until the orchestra's collective qualities emerge.

James Levine | communication quotes

More and more couples are having this negotiation or discussion but I'm still amazed at the number who aren't and where the cultural norm sort of kicks in and they just assume that mom's got to be the one who stays home not dad.

James Levine | dad quotes

Employee fathers need to step up to the plate and put their family needs on the table.

James Levine | dad quotes

It was just that we had this phenomenal honeymoon relationship that just kept on going.

There is no relationship between the gestures and what an orchestra will do.

James Levine | relationship quotes

James Levine | relationship quotes

I was lucky that I met the right mentors and teachers at the right moment.

James Levine | teacher quotes

Most people treat the office manual the way they treat a software manual. They never look at it.

James Levine | work quotes

Comedians don't laugh. They're too busy analyzing why it's funny or not.

James Lipton | funny quotes

Geological change usually takes thousands of years to happen but we are seeing the climate changing not just in our lifetimes but also year by year.

James Lovelock | change quotes

I don't think we're yet evolved to the point where we're clever enough to handle a complex a situation as climate change. The inertia of humans is so huge that you can't really do anything meaningful.

James Lovelock | change quotes

If we gave up eating beef we would have roughly 20 to 30 times more land for food than we have now.

James Lovelock | environmental quotes

I'm a scientist not a theologian. I don't know if there is a God or not. Religion requires certainty. Revere and respect Gaia. Have trust in Gaia. But not faith.

James Lovelock | faith quotes

If we gave up eating beef we would have roughly 20 to 30 times more land for food than we have now.

James Lovelock | food quotes

I've got personal views on the '60s. You can't have freedom without paying the price for it.

James Lovelock | freedom quotes

You mustn't take what I say as gospel because no one can second-guess the future.

James Lovelock | future quotes

There aren't just bad people that commit genocide we are all capable of it. It's our evolutionary history.

James Lovelock | history quotes

There is little evidence that our individual intelligence has improved through recorded history.

James Lovelock | history quotes

One thing that being a scientist has taught me is that you can never be certain about anything. You never know the truth. You can only approach it and hope to get a bit nearer to it each time. You iterate towards the truth. You don't know it.

James Lovelock | hope quotes

There is little evidence that our individual intelligence has improved through recorded history.

James Lovelock | intelligence quotes

I have heard that the Saudi Arabians are paying Greenpeace to campaign against Nuclear Power. It wouldn't surprise me at all.

James Lovelock | power quotes

The oil companies regard nuclear power as their rival who will reduce their profits so they put out a lot of disinformation about nuclear power.

James Lovelock | power quotes

I'm a scientist not a theologian. I don't know if there is a God or not. Religion requires certainty.

James Lovelock | religion quotes

It just so happens that the green religion is now taking over from the Christian religion. I don't think people have noticed that but it's got all the sort of terms that religions use... The greens use guilt. That just shows how religious greens are. You can't win people round by saying they are guilty for putting (carbon dioxide) in the air.

James Lovelock | religion quotes

I'm a scientist not a theologian. I don't know if there is a God or not. Religion requires certainty. Revere and respect Gaia. Have trust in Gaia. But not faith.

James Lovelock | respect quotes

Just after World War II this country led the world in science by every way you could measure it yet the number of scientists was a tiny proportion of what it is now.

James Lovelock | science quotes

Science always uses metaphor.

James Lovelock | science quotes

If you start any large theory such as quantum mechanics plate tectonics evolution it takes about 40 years for mainstream science to come around. Gaia has been going for only 30 years or so.

James Lovelock | science quotes

Fudging the data in any way whatsoever is quite literally a sin against the holy ghost of science. I'm not religious but I put it that way because I feel so strongly. It's the one thing you do not ever do. You've got to have standards.

James Lovelock | science quotes

What I like about sceptics is that in good science you need critics that make you think: 'Crumbs have I made a mistake here?' If you don't have that continuously you really are up the creek. The good sceptics have done a good service but some of the mad ones I think have not done anyone any favours.

James Lovelock | science quotes

I'm a scientist not a theologian. I don't know if there is a God or not. Religion requires certainty. Revere and respect Gaia. Have trust in Gaia. But not faith.

James Lovelock | trust quotes

This programme to stop nuclear by 2020 is just crazy. If there were a nuclear war and humanity were wiped out the Earth would breathe a sigh of relief.

If it hadn't been for the Cold War neither Russia nor America would have been sending people into space.

James Madison | alone quotes

A well regulated militia composed of the body of the people trained in arms is the best most natural defense of a free country.

Whenever a youth is ascertained to possess talents meriting an education which his parents cannot afford he should be carried forward at the public expense.

James Madison | education quotes

The class of citizens who provide at once their own food and their own raiment may be viewed as the most truly independent and happy.

James Madison | food quotes

I believe there are more instances of the abridgement of freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments by those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations.

James Madison | freedom quotes

No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare.

James Madison | freedom quotes

Knowledge will forever govern ignorance and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives.

James Madison | government quotes

If men were angels no government would be necessary.

James Madison | government quotes

And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed as every past one has done in showing that religion and Government will both exist in greater purity the less they are mixed together.

James Madison | government quotes

A popular government without popular information or the means of acquiring it is but a prologue to a farce or a tragedy or perhaps both.

James Madison | government quotes

War should only be declared by the authority of the people whose toils and treasures are to support its burdens instead of the government which is to reap its fruits.

James Madison | government quotes

I have no doubt but that the misery of the lower classes will be found to abate whenever the Government assumes a freer aspect and the laws favor a subdivision of Property.

James Madison | government quotes

The people are the only legitimate fountain of power and it is from them that the constitutional charter under which the several branches of government hold their power is derived.

James Madison | government quotes

The essence of Government is power and power lodged as it must be in human hands will ever be liable to abuse.

James Madison | government quotes

In framing a government which is to be administered by men over men you must first enable the government to control the governed and in the next place oblige it to control itself.

James Madison | government quotes

The diversity in the faculties of men from which the rights of property originate is not less an insuperable obstacle to an uniformity of interests. The protection of these faculties is the first object of government.

James Madison | government quotes

What is government itself but the greatest of all reflections on human nature? If men were angels no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary.

James Madison | government quotes

To suppose that any form of government will secure liberty or happiness without any virtue in the people is a chimerical idea.

The means of defense against foreign danger historically have become the instruments of tyranny at home.

Americans have the right and advantage of being armed - unlike the citizens of other countries whose governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.

The Constitution preserves the advantage of being armed which Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation where the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.

James Madison | truth quotes

War should only be declared by the authority of the people whose toils and treasures are to support its burdens instead of the government which is to reap its fruits.

James Madison | war quotes

Of all the enemies of public liberty war is perhaps the most to be dreaded because it comprises and develops the germ of every other.

James Madison | war quotes

The executive has no right in any case to decide the question whether there is or is not cause for declaring war.

James Madison | war quotes

War contains so much folly as well as wickedness that much is to be hoped from the progress of reason.

James Madison | war quotes

Every nation whose affairs betray a want of wisdom and stability may calculate on every loss which can be sustained from the more systematic policy of its wiser neighbors.

Yes we were looking for a Faith spin-off but then Faith backed down. Eliza got a really wonderful offer over on Fox in a show and for reasons I didn't talk to her about she decided to go there and everyone respects that.

I was talking to one of my aunties at Christmas and she said she didn't think it was ever in my nature to go against the grain that I was always a good boy. I think she was right - I did always want to be good.

James McAvoy | christmas quotes

I really liked 'Starter For Ten' because I grew up watching 1980s teen films like 'St. Elmo's Fire' and 'The Breakfast Club' and I've always wanted to play the underdog lead hero in a 1980s-inspired film.

James McAvoy | teen quotes

I considered becoming a priest very seriously. I wanted to travel the world. By the time I turned 16 I realized I was only in it for selfish reasons. And more importantly I didn't want to sacrifice the ladies!

James McAvoy | travel quotes

We are losing sight of civility in government and politics. Debate and dialogue is taking a back seat to the politics of destruction and anger and control. Dogma has replaced thoughtful discussion between people of differing views.

I'm on the board of a national group called Faith in America. It's designed to fight religious-based bigotry.

No relief was forthcoming from my then-Catholic faith which said the practice of homosexuality was a 'mortal sin' subject to damnation.

I realized that my truest passion was for helping people change through faith in a higher power. That meant for me belonging to the church. Using my abilities to bring Christian doctrine to a postmodern world.

The arc of American history almost inevitably moves toward freedom. Whether it's Lincoln and the Emancipation Proclamation the expansion of women's rights or now gay rights I think there is an almost-inevitable march toward greater civil liberties.

James McGreevey | freedom quotes

To be able to love and live in freedom means to be able to make godly decisions. To make godly decisions we have to surrender our egos and all the falsity and shame that goes with it.

You know for many elected officials they all started in the same place. You know marriage is between a man and a woman but they understand that they are moving inevitably catching up to the American public.

James McGreevey | marriage quotes

Civil union is less than marriage. Marriage is a sacred and valued institution and ought to be afforded equal protection.

James McGreevey | marriage quotes

We are losing sight of civility in government and politics. Debate and dialogue is taking a back seat to the politics of destruction and anger and control. Dogma has replaced thoughtful discussion between people of differing views.

James McGreevey | politics quotes

Inauthenticity is endemic in American politics today. The political backrooms where I spent much of my career were just as benighted as my personal life equally crowded with shadowy strangers and compromises truths I hoped to deny. I lived not in one closet but in many.

James McGreevey | politics quotes

I kept a steel wall around my moral and sexual instincts - protecting them I thought from the threats of the real world. This gave me a tremendous advantage in politics if not in my soul. The true me my spiritual core slipped further and further from reach.

James McGreevey | politics quotes

But being in the closet uniquely assisted me in politics. From my first run for the state legislature until my election as governor all too often I was not leading but following my best guess at public opinion.

James McGreevey | politics quotes

For me living in the closet corroded my ability to have an honest open relationship with my God my loved ones my constituency and myself.

James McGreevey | relationship quotes

The frontiers of knowledge in the various fields of our subject are expanding at such a rate that work as hard as one can one finds oneself further and further away from an understanding of the whole.

Strange about parents. We have such easy access to them and such daunting problems of communication.

James Otis | truth quotes

We didn't start this war - the right wing did. We're tired of seeing good-paying jobs shipped overseas. This fight is about the economy it's about jobs and it's about rebuilding America.

James P Hoffa | war quotes

We've got to keep an eye on the battle that we face - a war on workers. And you see it everywhere. It is the Tea Party. And there's only one way to beat and win that war - the one thing about working people is we like a good fight.

Violence is a very ugly thing. Violence is often so casual on film and made to look so cool and so sexy but violence is a repulsive repugnant act that human beings inflict on each other. It shouldn't seem to be cool and sexy ever really.

But no one has yet succeeded in reducing the size or scope of the federal government.

Some people suggest that the problem is the separation of powers. If you had a parliamentary system the struggle for power would not result in such complex peace treaties that empower so many different people to pursue so many contradictory aims.

James Wolcott | hope quotes

Feature-length film comedy is harder to pull off than the episodic sitcom - it doesn't have the same factory machinery up and running teams of writers putting familiar characters through permutations - but that doesn't explain the widening quality gap that makes movie humor look like a genetic defective.

It's the contemporary woman that movies don't know what to do with other than bathe her in a bridal glow in romantic comedies where both the romance and the comedy are artificial sweeteners.

James Wolcott | movies quotes

The days when the words 'Hollywood actor' framed Ronald Reagan like bunny fingers as an ID tag and an implied insult seem far-off and quaint: nearly everybody in politics - candidate consultant pundit and Tea Party crowd extra alike - is an actor now a shameless ham in a hoked-up reality series that never stops.

James Wolcott | politics quotes

Bad acting comes in many bags various odors. It can be performed by cardboard refugees from an Ed Wood movie reciting their dialogue off an eye chart or by hopped-up pros looking to punch a hole through the fourth wall from pure ballistic force of personality like Joe Pesci in a bad mood.

I've had to be a man since I was 12 or 13. I had a job. And I was playing the piano for people twice my age. Handling responsibility is what makes a man a man.

Jamie Foxx | age quotes

Well the album 'Intuition' is out and just went platinum officially. So I think to have the music doing what it's doing right now man it's the ultimate. Nobody is really selling records out there but we are at a million records and we dropped it at Christmas so we are just trying to get that thing to like two million you know.

Jamie Foxx | christmas quotes

I'm bad on Valentine's Day but even worse on Christmas. I go shopping at nine o'clock on December 24th every year. Nobody else is there. I'm in Toys'R'Us all by myself. I get there five minutes before closing.

Jamie Foxx | christmas quotes

I think Prince should open up a little more to other artists. Just because we love Prince. Especially the old stuff - we love him to death. But if he opened up he would be something to deal with. Imagine Kanye West producing a Prince track? It would be banoodles!

Jamie Foxx | death quotes

She still talks to me now only now she talks to me in my dreams. And I can't wait to go to sleep tonight because we have a lot to talk about. I love you.

My worst hair experience was when I was trying to relax my hair and my grandmother did it. It went all straight and I looked like a black Bee Gee.

Jamie Foxx | experience quotes

Actually music gave me the support when I needed it. I would never have gone to college unless I'd gotten a piano scholarship. And now I'm so glad I got to learn to play the cello which is a different experience you're flexing a different muscle but it's beautiful because it is music.

Jamie Foxx | experience quotes

When you look at Michael Jackson there's nobody who loves him in that family nobody. If they did they'd tell him he didn't have to do all that in order to be famous. All he has to do is keep doing his music and be himself. Michael's been a little touched for about 20 years but somebody needs to pull him aside and tell him they love him.

Jamie Foxx | famous quotes

You know what? I never really factor Hollywood into anything. I'm a black actor so I can't really control what Hollywood thinks. I gotta go do my thing and my jokes have got to be funny. Whatever I do has got to be great.

Jamie Foxx | sad quotes

I've been a sports fan all my life and like most other actors I'm convinced I could have been a pro athlete if Hollywood hadn't come calling.

Jamie Foxx | sports quotes

I'd like to say I'm R&B's savior. Whether that's the truth or not I'm definitely going out there with my mic and my shield to declare 'I am here to save R&B.' I will have the people saying 'Sir there is a man at the musical gates saying he is here to save R&B.'

Jamie Foxx | truth quotes

I'd like to be a wounded leading man. Instead of a pillar of strength I'd be the scared one.

Jamie Kennedy | strength quotes

I've been going through photos of my mother looking back on her life and trying to put it into context. Very few people age gracefully enough to be photographed through their aging.

Jamie Lee Curtis | age quotes

My mother and stepfather were married 43 years so I have watched a long marriage. I feel like I had a very good role model for that. And you know it's just a number.

Jamie Lee Curtis | anniversary quotes

I think happiness comes from self-acceptance. We all try different things and we find some comfortable sense of who we are. We look at our parents and learn and grow and move on. We change.

Jamie Lee Curtis | happiness quotes

My marriage? Up to now everything's okay. But it's a real marriage - imperfect and very difficult. It's all about people evolving somewhat simultaneously through their lives. I think we've emotionally evolved.

Jamie Lee Curtis | marriage quotes

My mother and stepfather were married 43 years so I have watched a long marriage. I feel like I had a very good role model for that. And you know it's just a number.

Jamie Lee Curtis | marriage quotes

Getting sober just exploded my life. Now I have a much clearer sense of myself and what I can and can't do. I am more successful than I have ever been. I feel very positive where I never did before and I think that's all a direct result of getting sober.

Jamie Lee Curtis | positive quotes

Well I could do it for a day but I wouldn't want to be a teenager again. I really wouldn't.

King Crimson were the only really famous band I'd been in.

Jamie Muir | famous quotes

The reasons why I left were to do with my interest in Buddhism. There were experiences over a period of about six months which caused me to decide to give up music so one morning I felt I had to go to E.G. Management and tell them.

Jamie Muir | morning quotes

Jamie Oliver | food quotes

Jamie Oliver | food quotes

I want Americans to enjoy food. I want them to celebrate food. I want them to on occasions to have big cakes and great things. And I want them to indulge.

Jamie Oliver | food quotes

I wouldn't say that processed food ready meals and even takeaways aren't relevant to modern life it's just that over the past 40 years there are three generations of people who have come out of school and gone through their home life without ever being shown how to cook properly.

Jamie Oliver | food quotes

Just because the Americans are so good at rattling out accessible and cheap junk food nobody looks twice when it comes to their food. But there are golden nuggets everywhere.

Jamie Oliver | food quotes

If Obama wanted to make radical changes to America's health long-term all he has to do is treble the price of sugar and salt.

On the other hand there would be some value in different folks getting together to share expertise and technology but to the listener it wouldn't necessarily seem like a single station in the traditional sense.

We have over 500 000 illegal immigrants living in Arizona. And we simply cannot sustain it. It costs us a tremendous amount of money of course in health care in education and then on top of it all in incarceration. And the federal government doesn't reimburse us on any of these things.

Jan Brewer | education quotes

And under the existing circumstances I understand there are situations where people indeed need care and need services but I believe in America that the majority of those people are getting those services under situations and circumstances that are afforded to them by their health care providers and their state government.

I am encouraged that there's going to be much better dialogue between the federal government and the state of Arizona. I mean I hope that's not wishful thinking.

So you know I think that the federal government the Democrats and President Obama are selling a lot of hope and change but no delivery of any of those promises.

In regards to The Haunting people compared it to the old movie which is unfair. We didn't have the rights to the movie. I couldn't duplicate a single thing because that would have been legal infringement.

Jan de Bont | legal quotes

I think there are a lot more relationship scenes in my movies that people tend to overlook. A lot of scenes really feel real and are about the characters.

I stepped out on faith to follow my lifelong dream of being an author. I made real sacrifices and took big risks. But living it seems to me is largely about risk.

Travel which was once either a necessity or an adventure has become very largely a commodity and from all sides we are persuaded into thinking that it is a social requirement too.

We need a vibrant Medicaid program and strategies to expand affordable access to health care for all especially for the specialty care services that community health centers do not provide.

Jan Schakowsky | health quotes

In Illinois community migrant homeless and public housing health centers operate 268 primary care sites and serve close to 1 million patients every year.

Jan Schakowsky | health quotes

Each and every day health centers provide high-quality primary and preventive care to our constituents.

Jan Schakowsky | health quotes

Community health centers do a great deal with limited resources. They provide critical medical care services to many who would otherwise have no other place to go or would end up in an emergency room.

Jan Schakowsky | health quotes

As grateful as we are for all the work the community health centers do it is also important that we recognize that they cannot solve the health care crisis facing our Nation by themselves.

Jan Schakowsky | health quotes

The House Republican leadership has simply run out of ideas.

Jane Asher | beauty quotes

I adore food and always have.

Jane Asher | food quotes

People ask what the secret of a happy marriage is. If there is one it's 'don't talk about it.'

Jane Asher | marriage quotes

Woman is fine for her own satisfaction alone. No man will admire her the more no woman will like her the better for it. Neatness and fashion are enough for the former and a something of shabbiness or impropriety will be most endearing to the latter.

Jane Austen | alone quotes

To look almost pretty is an acquisition of higher delight to a girl who has been looking plain for the first fifteen years of her life than a beauty from her cradle can ever receive.

Give a girl an education and introduce her properly into the world and ten to one but she has the means of settling well without further expense to anybody.

Jane Austen | education quotes

Men have had every advantage of us in telling their own story. Education has been theirs in so much higher a degree the pen has been in their hands. I will not allow books to prove anything.

Selfishness must always be forgiven you know because there is no hope of a cure.

From politics it was an easy step to silence.

Respect for right conduct is felt by every body.

Jane Austen | respect quotes

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.

Jane Austen | truth quotes

Seldom very seldom does complete truth belong to any human disclosure seldom can it happen that something is not a little disguised or a little mistaken.

Jane Austen | truth quotes

Single women have a dreadful propensity for being poor. Which is one very strong argument in favor of matrimony.

Jane Austen | women quotes

Good-humoured unaffected girls will not do for a man who has been used to sensible women. They are two distinct orders of being.

Chicago's neighborhoods have always been this city's greatest strength.

Jane Byrne | strength quotes

As I visited the various neighborhoods in the campaign I learned fast that it's a mistake to think that all of the wisdom and possible solutions to our problems are available only in this building.

Jane Byrne | wisdom quotes

It's been such a deep and amazing journey for me getting close to John Keats and also I love Shelley and Byron. I mean the thing about the Romantic poets is that they've got the epitaph of romantic posthumously. They all died really young and Keats the youngest of them all.

Jane Campion | amazing quotes

There was a big drive when I was at art school to make you aware of the economy of meaning - after all this was still during the tail end of minimalism. Being responsible for everything you put in your picture and being able to defend it. Keeping everything clear around you so you know what is operating. To open the wound and keep it clean.

Jane Campion | art quotes

I did this Super-8 film at art school called 'Tissues ' this black comedy about a family whose father has been arrested for child molestation. I was absolutely thrilled by every inch of it and would throw my projector in the back of my car and show it to anybody who would watch it.

Jane Campion | car quotes

I think that the romantic impulse is in all of us and that sometimes we live it for a short time but it's not part of a sensible way of living. It's a heroic path and it generally ends dangerously. I treasure it in the sense that I believe it's a path of great courage. It can also be the path of the foolhardy and the compulsive.

Jane Campion | courage quotes

I think women don't grow up with the harsh world of criticism that men grow up with we are more sensitively treated and when you first experience the world of film-making you have to develop a very tough skin.

Jane Campion | experience quotes

With 'Bright Star' and with 'The Piano ' too I felt a kind of sadness about it being in such a different era because of my lack of experience with the era. And one of the ways I'd get over it is to remind myself that every film even if it's contemporary creates its own world.

Jane Campion | experience quotes

But short films are not inferior just different. I think the short gives a freedom to film-makers. What's appealing is that you don't have as much responsibility for storytelling and plot. They can be more like a portrait or a poem.

Jane Campion | freedom quotes

I didn't like England. I couldn't take the look of the place or the style of friendship. I need more intimacy from people than is considered okay there and I felt that my personality and my enthusiasms weren't understood. I had to put a big lid on myself.

Jane Campion | friendship quotes

There's no artist in this world that doesn't enjoy the dream that if they have bad reviews now the story of Keats can redeem them in their fantasy or imagination in the future. I think Keats' poem 'Endymion' is a really difficult poem and I'm not surprised that a lot of people pulled it apart in a way.

Jane Campion | future quotes

Performers are so vulnerable. They're frightened of humiliation sure their work will be crap. I try to make an environment where it's warm where it's OK to fail - a kind of home I suppose.

Jane Campion | home quotes

I can get very philosophical and ask the questions Keats was asking as a young guy. What are we here for? What's a soul? What's it all about? What is thinking about imagination?

Jane Campion | imagination quotes

I think Keats' poem 'Endymion' is a really difficult poem and I'm not surprised that a lot of people pulled it apart in a way.

Jane Campion | imagination quotes

I feel that directors at times are like the janitors on the set. I am the secretary I am the organizer I am the maid and I ask if they have eaten or rested. The best things are always out of your control. It's those moments that surpass the imagination that are thrilling.

Jane Campion | imagination quotes

My musical knowledge is so bad it's embarrassing. When composers discuss music with someone as primitive as myself they have to talk about it in terms of senses and emotion rather than keys and tempo.

Jane Campion | knowledge quotes

I think I made good movies.

Jane Campion | movies quotes

I had a daughter who was 9 years old and I had the feeling I wasn't going to be a real parent if I didn't quit making movies for a while and spend time with her. I also felt that I'd made enough movies and said what I had to say at the time.

Jane Campion | movies quotes

As for how criticism of Keats' poetry relates to criticism of my own work I'll leave that for others to decide.

Jane Campion | poetry quotes

I have to admit that I had a lot of problems with poetry.

Jane Campion | poetry quotes

And I mean I think poetry does need to be met to some extent especially I guess 19th century poetry and for me it's just been so worth the effort. It's like I'm planting a garden in my head.

Jane Campion | poetry quotes

But I think it's quite clear in my work that my orientation isn't political or doesn't come out of modern politics.

Jane Campion | politics quotes

It's a luxury to be able to tell a long form story. I love novels and I love to have a long relationship with characters.

Jane Campion | relationship quotes

You know sex is actually not so original as the way people love or the stories behind each relationship which is what you remember. Sex is sex in the end.

Jane Campion | relationship quotes

Women today are dealing with both their independence and also the fact that their lives are built around finding and satisfying the romantic models we grew up with.

Women often postpone their lives thinking that if they're not with a partner then it doesn't really count. They're still searching for their prince in a way. And as much as we don't discuss that because it's too embarrassing and too sad I think it really does exist.

We're still living with the old paradigm of age as an arch. That's the old metaphor: You're born you peak at midlife and decline into decrepitude.

Jane Fonda | age quotes

We can no longer waste time and money. Every day more than 2 000 girls in America age 15-19 give birth - in the wealthiest most educated nation in the world! Neither you nor I should accept this statistic.

If adolescent pregnancy prevention is to become a priority then our strategy as advocates must contain two key elements: civic engagement and education.

Jane Fonda | education quotes

Our youth deserve the opportunity to complete their high school and college education free of early parenthood. Their future children deserve the opportunity to grow up in financially and emotionally stable homes. Our communities benefit from healthy productive well-prepared young people.

Jane Fonda | education quotes

I remember saying goodbye to my father the night he left to join the Navy. He didn't have to. He was older than other servicemen and had a family to support but he wanted to be a part of the fight against fascism not just make movies about it. I admired this about him.

Think about it: Reducing crime and poverty and ensuring that we have an educated stable work force has a direct effect on you and me and the future of our country.

Jane Fonda | future quotes

Our youth deserve the opportunity to complete their high school and college education free of early parenthood. Their future children deserve the opportunity to grow up in financially and emotionally stable homes. Our communities benefit from healthy productive well-prepared young people.

Jane Fonda | future quotes

It's about time we make the well-being of our young people more important than ideology and politics. As a country we benefit from investing in their future by investing in teen pregnancy prevention.

Jane Fonda | future quotes

I'm a very brave person. I can go to North Vietnam I can challenge my government but I can't challenge the man I'm with if means I'm going to end up alone.

Jane Fonda | government quotes

Children born to teens have less supportive and stimulating environments poorer health lower cognitive development and worse educational outcomes. Children of teen mothers are at increased risk of being in foster care and becoming teen parents themselves thereby repeating the cycle.

Jane Fonda | health quotes

My childhood was influenced by the roles my father played in his movies. Whether Abraham Lincoln or Tom Joad in the 'Grapes of Wrath ' his characters communicated certain values which I try to carry with me to this day.

Jane Fonda | movies quotes

I remember saying goodbye to my father the night he left to join the Navy. He didn't have to. He was older than other servicemen and had a family to support but he wanted to be a part of the fight against fascism not just make movies about it. I admired this about him.

Jane Fonda | movies quotes

While not impossible it is especially challenging for teenage parents to develop bonds with their children. A high percent of them were themselves children of teenage parents and have never experienced appropriate parenting.

Jane Fonda | parenting quotes

I don't think there's anything more important than making peace before it's too late. And it almost always falls to the child to try to move toward the parent.

Jane Fonda | peace quotes

It's about time we make the well-being of our young people more important than ideology and politics. As a country we benefit from investing in their future by investing in teen pregnancy prevention.

Jane Fonda | politics quotes

My mother killed herself when I was 12. I won't complete that relationship. But I can try to understand her.

Jane Fonda | relationship quotes

If we as a nation are to break the cycle of poverty crime and the growing underclass of young people ill equipped to be productive citizens we need to not only implement effective programs to prevent teen pregnancy but we must also help those who have already given birth so that they become effective nurturing bonding parents.

Jane Fonda | teen quotes

Children born to teens have less supportive and stimulating environments poorer health lower cognitive development and worse educational outcomes. Children of teen mothers are at increased risk of being in foster care and becoming teen parents themselves thereby repeating the cycle.

Jane Fonda | teen quotes

It's about time we make the well-being of our young people more important than ideology and politics. As a country we benefit from investing in their future by investing in teen pregnancy prevention.

Jane Fonda | teen quotes

I took every chance I could to meet with U.S. soldiers. I talked with them and read the books they gave me about the war. I decided I needed to return to my country and join with them - active duty soldiers and Vietnam Veterans in particular - to try and end the war.

Jane Fonda | war quotes

One part of wisdom is knowing what you don't need anymore and letting it go.

Jane Fonda | wisdom quotes

Words can be said in bitterness and anger and often there seems to be an element of truth in the nastiness. And words don't go away they just echo around.

Jane Goodall | anger quotes

Change happens by listening and then starting a dialogue with the people who are doing something you don't believe is right.

Jane Goodall | change quotes

I thought my life was mapped out. Research living in the forest teaching and writing. But in '86 I went to a conference and realised the chimpanzees were disappearing. I had worldwide recognition and a gift of communication. I had to use them.

Jane Goodall | communication quotes

When I look back over my life it's almost as if there was a plan laid out for me - from the little girl who was so passionate about animals who longed to go to Africa and whose family couldn't afford to put her through college. Everyone laughed at my dreams. I was supposed to be a secretary in Bournemouth.

Jane Goodall | dreams quotes

My family has very strong women. My mother never laughed at my dream of Africa even though everyone else did because we didn't have any money because Africa was the 'dark continent' and because I was a girl.

Jane Goodall | family quotes

Everyone laughed at my dreams. I was supposed to be a secretary in Bournemouth.

Jane Goodall | family quotes

War had always seemed to me to be a purely human behavior. Accounts of warlike behavior date back to the very first written records of human history it seemed to be an almost universal characteristic of human groups.

Jane Goodall | history quotes

I'm highly political. I spend an awful lot of time in the U.S. trying to influence decision-makers. But I don't feel in tune with British politics.

Jane Goodall | politics quotes

I'm always pushing for human responsibility. Given that chimpanzees and many other animals are sentient and sapient then we should treat them with respect.

Jane Goodall | respect quotes

When I began in 1960 individuality wasn't an accepted thing to look for it was about species-specific behaviour. But animal behaviour is not hard science. There's room for intuition.

Jane Goodall | science quotes

Women tend to be more intuitive or to admit to being intuitive and maybe the hard science approach isn't so attractive. The way that science is taught is very cold. I would never have become a scientist if I had been taught like that.

Jane Goodall | science quotes

Words can be said in bitterness and anger and often there seems to be an element of truth in the nastiness. And words don't go away they just echo around.

Jane Goodall | truth quotes

War had always seemed to me to be a purely human behavior. Accounts of warlike behavior date back to the very first written records of human history it seemed to be an almost universal characteristic of human groups.

Jane Goodall | war quotes

But does that mean that war and violence are inevitable? I would argue not because we have also evolved this amazingly sophisticated intellect and we are capable of controlling our innate behavior a lot of the time.

Jane Goodall | war quotes

I've been a teacher at the college level in composition mostly and I've been an editor on magazines.

Jane Haddam | teacher quotes

So you know I think that Democrats are being more successful in Congress and I'm really going to be proud of the role I will play tomorrow as ranking Democrat on the Intelligence Committee when this bill passes.

Jane Harman | intelligence quotes

A lot of the things that we've been able to do in the last several years were Democratic ideas including the structure for this new director of national intelligence.

Jane Harman | intelligence quotes

The Committee's review of a series of intelligence shortcomings to include intelligence prior to 9/11 and the pre-war intelligence on Iraq clearly reveal how vital a diverse intelligence workforce is to our national security.

Jane Harman | intelligence quotes

We can no longer expect an Intelligence Community that is mostly male and mostly white to be able to monitor and infiltrate suspicious organizations or terrorist groups.

Jane Harman | intelligence quotes

Marriage for a woman at least hampers the two things that made life to me glorious - friendship and learning.

My earliest acting memory is making up a play for my mom and dad called The Lonesome Baby. I have no idea what The Lonesome Baby was about. I just remember the title. But I'm sure it was an epic.

Jane Horrocks | mom quotes

Anthropology was the science that gave her the platform from which she surveyed scolded and beamed at the world.

Jane Howard | science quotes

Design is people.

Jane Jacobs | design quotes

The fact that I even get in Broadway shows is to me still amazing but then to win a Tony was just incredible.

Jane Krakowski | amazing quotes

I know it sounds new age-y but what I've truly come up with is that you really need to trust that you're on your own path as long as you stay true to it and you show up which is 99% of it.

Jane Lynch | trust quotes

Well yes I mean I think that you know my sources suggest that there's a lot of support for the notion that there is a lot of Koran abuse and that it was very much a systematic design not just an aberration.

Jane Mayer | design quotes

Your 40s are a major trough. About the age of 50 feelings of satisfaction begin to rebound and keep rising into your 50s 60s and 70s with health being a major factor.

Jane Pauley | age quotes

I came back to work when my children were two months old. At that early age they seem to have little awareness of anybody but their Raggedy Ann dolls so it wasn't a matter of them missing me. I was missing them.

Jane Pauley | age quotes

About the time I turned 50 I experienced the profound biological change that often accompanies women at that age. Also I put two kids in college and lost both of my parents so I'm no longer somebody's daughter.

Jane Pauley | age quotes

My father was so good-natured and had such a happy disposition. I've always confused him with Jimmy Stewart. So think Jimmy Stewart. That's my dad.

Jane Pauley | dad quotes

I envy people with dreams and passions but I don't think that way. I still don't have a 'bliss' to follow. For people like me - I suspect that's most people - holding out for a 'dream' or a 'passion' is paralyzing. I just like having work I enjoy that feels meaningful. That's hard enough... but it's enough.

Jane Pauley | dreams quotes

My parents had an experience of life that is as opposite to mine as you can imagine.

Jane Pauley | experience quotes

I would like to prove that on TV everyday lives can be as compelling as the life-styles of the rich and famous. Especially lives that we catch at extraordinary moments.

Jane Pauley | famous quotes

This may sound funny but as much as the 'Today' show matured me it also was something of a cocoon. I'd been happy there. I never went into the boss's office and pounded my fist on the desk saying 'Give me more money! Give me a prime-time show!'

Jane Pauley | funny quotes

AARP knows the future is bright for a generation that's going to remain healthy and vital for 10 20 30 40 more years. AARP has the information and resources people need throughout their process of reinvention.

Jane Pauley | future quotes

I've come to recognize what I call my 'inside interests.' Telling stories. And helping people tell their stories is a sort of interpersonal gardening. My work at NBC News was to report the news but in hindsight I often tried to look for some insight to share that might spark a moment of recognition in a viewer.

Jane Pauley | gardening quotes

Your 40s are a major trough. About the age of 50 feelings of satisfaction begin to rebound and keep rising into your 50s 60s and 70s with health being a major factor.

Jane Pauley | health quotes

In the beginning when I sat next to Tom Brokaw on the 'Today' show the stories I was interested in were those having to do with women and children and learning and health. In those days 25 to 30 years ago that was called soft news and not in a nice way.

Jane Pauley | health quotes

I think my children know that Mother's priority is to be with them first. But I don't think it has to be an either/or situation. Work is very important to me and it wouldn't be in the best interest of my children for me to stay home seven days a week.

Jane Pauley | home quotes

Most of us in the baby-boom generation were raised by full-time mothers. Even as recently as 14 years ago 6 out of 10 mothers with babies were staying at home. Today that is totally reversed. Does that mean we love our children less than our mothers loved us? No but it certainly causes a lot of guilt trips.

Jane Pauley | home quotes

Jane Pauley | learning quotes

Good Morning America' exploited Joan Lunden's pregnancy but you won't see me bringing my babies on the air. The only reason I'm talking about the babies at all is that they've been with me on the show since I became pregnant. After a while I had to acknowledge this pumpkin tummy.

Jane Pauley | morning quotes

I think the success of a talk show depends on how true it is to the personality of the person hosting it. The shows I really admire like 'Oprah' and 'Ellen ' are distinctively like their hosts so I think my show will be successful only if we try to stay consistent to my own sense of myself.

Jane Pauley | success quotes

Happiness is a sunbeam which may pass through a thousand bosoms without losing a particle of its original ray nay when it strikes on a kindred heart like the converged light on a mirror it reflects itself with redoubled brightness. It is not perfected till it is shared.

Jane Porter | happiness quotes

Imparting knowledge is only lighting other men's candles at our lamp without depriving ourselves of any flame.

Jane Porter | knowledge quotes

Dr. Johnson has said that the chief glory of a country arises from its authors. But then that is only as they are oracles of wisdom unless they teach virtue they are more worthy of a halter than of the laurel.

Jane Porter | wisdom quotes

Dreams can be like charades in which we act out words rather than see or speak them.

Jane Roberts | dreams quotes

Dreaming or awake we perceive only events that have meaning to us.

Jane Roberts | dreams quotes

The channels of intuitive knowledge are opened according to the intensity of individual need.

Jane Roberts | knowledge quotes

You should tell yourself frequently 'I will only react to constructive suggestions.' This gives you positive ammunition against your own negative thoughts and those of others.

Jane Roberts | positive quotes

The message of women's liberation is that women can love each other and ourselves against our degrading education.

Jane Rule | education quotes

I believe only in art and failure.

Jane Rule | failure quotes

People say women shouldn't have long hair over a certain age but I've never done what everyone says.

Jane Seymour | age quotes

Beauty is a radiance that originates from within and comes from inner security and strong character.

Jane Seymour | beauty quotes

It's interesting because a lot of my 16-year-old kids' friends know me from 'Wedding Crashers ' and not so much Bond. My kids have a good laugh. I was 20 then. The look I had then was the look that a lot of their friends are assuming now. They think it's cool. What goes around comes around.

Jane Seymour | cool quotes

I learn my lines while on the golf course. I try to do two or three things at once. I have ideas for books all the time I have ideas for paintings all the time and I write them all down. I take my sketchpad and my iPad which I design on and I do sit down and do specific tasks at specific times.

Jane Seymour | design quotes

People ask me how I keep my figure and I tell them it's because I paint. When you're covered in paint it's quite hard to put food in your mouth!

Jane Seymour | food quotes

It's interesting that whenever I meet some of the other Bond girls I always have something in common and it is an interesting sorority. We all share about our Bonds. 'Did your Bond do that?' 'Yes mine did!' So it is quite funny conversations. We may as well be in high school.

Jane Seymour | funny quotes

I've had two terrific relationships but both ended in marriage.

Jane Seymour | marriage quotes

I spend my afternoons painting and working on my Open Hearts jewelry line for Kay Jewelers. I designed an image of a heart that isn't completely closed. My mom always told me to live with an open heart - when life gets tough you should go out and help someone else.

Jane Seymour | mom quotes

Even though I make those movies I find myself wishing that more of those magic moments could happen in real life.

Jane Seymour | movies quotes

I really love the independent movies and I just think that sometimes when they throw a lot of money into it and a lot of special effects and a lot of stunts that you lose the connection the human connection and I personally love movies that are about the human connection.

Jane Seymour | movies quotes

I'm not involved in the politics of religion but I love what the message is.

Jane Seymour | politics quotes

I'm not involved in the politics of religion but I love what the message is.

Jane Seymour | religion quotes

I believe that there is some spiritual entity that's greater than us. I do not belong to any specific organized religion. I have always believed that and I believe it even more so now. I believe that someone was listening to me and someone is giving me an incredibly blessed life.

Jane Seymour | religion quotes

I had ordered long legs but they never arrived. My eyes are weird too one is gray and the other is green. I have a crooked smile and my nose looks like a ski slope. No I would not win a Miss contest.

Jane Seymour | smile quotes

You cannot do everything at once so find people you trust to help you. And don't be afraid to say no.

Jane Seymour | trust quotes

My mother lived in Holland and during World War II was incarcerated in a Japanese camp for three years.

Jane Seymour | war quotes

No I chose the name Jane Seymour because I was doing my first film 'Ode to Lovely War ' and one of the top agents in England spotted me dancing in the chorus. I was a singer and dancer in that movie with Maggie Smith um and he told me he couldn't sell me as Joyce Penelope Willomena Frankenburger.

Jane Seymour | war quotes

I think a lot of people get so obsessed with the wedding and the expense of the wedding that they miss out on what the real purpose is. It's not about a production number it's about a meaningful moment between two people that's witnessed by people that they actually really know and care about.

Jane Seymour | wedding quotes

I love doing comedy. Absolutely love it. After 'Wedding Crashers ' people suddenly realized that it was something I could do.

Jane Seymour | wedding quotes

It's interesting because a lot of my 16-year-old kids' friends know me from 'Wedding Crashers ' and not so much Bond. My kids have a good laugh. I was 20 then. The look I had then was the look that a lot of their friends are assuming now. They think it's cool. What goes around comes around.

Jane Seymour | wedding quotes

When I auditioned for 'Wedding Crashers ' the producers had never seen any of my other work except for Bond. I got 'Wedding Crashers' partly because I was a Bond girl.

Jane Seymour | wedding quotes

Home wasn't built in a day.

Jane Sherwood Ace | home quotes

I tour alone. There's no sound check no back up. I stay with the hosts I am in a family home and it's really nourishing. I just have to remember after the show not to run out into the living room in my pyjamas. Every day it's a new relationship being built. It's odd and wonderful.

Jane Siberry | alone quotes

So many of my friends are still trying to get record deals and I've had one for 10 years now where my only goal is to make the best music I can make. I've been very lucky. I have great faith that I'm exactly where I'm supposed to be and whatever happens is going to be absolutely right for me.

Jane Siberry | faith quotes

I'd probably be famous now if I wasn't such a good waitress.

Jane Siberry | famous quotes

Acceptable food rots while we are chased from bins behind restaurants chased from sleeping on the street chased from relieving ourselves unless we pay for food or gas until finally we are so hungry sleepless smelly constipated and beaten-down that we simply die of lack of will to live.

Jane Siberry | food quotes

Maybe a part of me recognized how right the improvising spirit of jazz is. Not the sounds but the freedom to work with musicians who work that way. It felt very natural to me but I think there's a way to do it without it being a jazz record.

Jane Siberry | freedom quotes

I brought a Border Collie back home to Vancouver from Wales - where some of my ancestors are from - and needed to challenge him in other ways than just being my pet. So I investigated sheep herding and took a few lessons and decided I was probably learning more than my dog!

Hurry conscious younger people! Get to power quickly so political decisions can be based on the greater good for all rather than the greater gain for few. Hurry before it is too late!

Jane Siberry | relationship quotes

The Taxi Ride ' from my second album is one people want to hear a lot. I'm consciously trying to walk on the sunny side of the street to really lift myself into a place of greater positivity and that's a sad song.

Jane Siberry | sad quotes

I learned why 'out riding alone' is an oxymoron: An equestrian is never alone is always sensing the other being the mysterious but also understandable living being that is the horse.

Jane Smiley | alone quotes

I discovered that the horse is life itself a metaphor but also an example of life's mystery and unpredictability of life's generosity and beauty a worthy object of repeated and ever changing contemplation.

Jane Smiley | beauty quotes

There are hundreds of Frank Lloyd Wright buildings around the United States and in other countries too. Wright lived into his 90s and one of his most famous buildings the Guggenheim Museum in New York was completed just before his death. Wright buildings look like Wright buildings - that is their paradox.

Jane Smiley | death quotes

Vets do what doctors used to - diagnose the injury or the condition patch it up as best they can and remind you that these things happen and that in life we are also in the midst of death.

Jane Smiley | death quotes

Somehow knowing that Alzheimer's is coming mocks all one's aspirations - to tell stories to think through certain issues as only a novel can do to be recognised for one's accomplishments and hard work - in a way that old familiar death does not.

Jane Smiley | death quotes

In my experience there is only one motivation and that is desire. No reasons or principle contain it or stand against it.

Jane Smiley | experience quotes

I was an only child. I've known only children. From this experience I do believe that the children should outnumber the parents.

Jane Smiley | experience quotes

When a novel has 200 000 words then it is possible for the reader to experience 200 000 delights and to turn back to the first page of the book and experience them all over again perhaps more intensely.

I loved the house the way you would any new house because it is populated by your future the family of children who will fill it with noise or chaos and satisfying busy pleasures.

Jane Smiley | future quotes

When I came home for the summer after my first year of college I told my mother that my best friend and I were driving to California. She laughed out loud - 2 000 miles in a what? Well my best friend had an old Chevy. What could go wrong?

In December 1998 I considered myself an expert on love. I was almost a year into a relationship one that had grown more slowly than I had wished but once it flowered it was much more stimulating than any marriage or relationship I had known.

Mom was a smoker. My grandfather was a smoker. My aunts were smokers. My uncles were smokers. I don't know any smokers now not even my mom.

English majors understand human nature better than economists do.

Jane Smiley | nature quotes

Is human nature basically good or evil? No economist can embark upon his profession without considering this question and yet they all seem to. And they all seem to think human nature is basically good or they wouldn't be surprised by the effects of deregulation.

Jane Smiley | nature quotes

There can never be such a thing as a free market because it is human nature to cheat monopolize and buy off others so as to corner the market.

Jane Smiley | relationship quotes

In the traditional urban novel there is only survival or not. The suburban idea the conformist idea that agony can be seen to and cured by doctors or psychoanalysis or self-knowledge is nowhere to be found in the city. Talking is a way of life but it is not a cure. Same with religion.

Let's be very honest about what this is about. It's not about bashing Democrats it's not about taxes they have no idea what the Boston tea party was about they don't know their history at all. This is about hating a black man in the White House. This is racism straight up.

Janeane Garofalo | history quotes

I don't think Hollywood was trying to do anything with me. In fact they lost interest pretty quick. I think I got lucky briefly in the '90s and it just so happened that those movies were the opportunities that came my way. Then it just kind of stopped.

I say at this point for different reasons Bush and Hussein are both very threatening to world peace and to deny that is to be incredibly naive.

I wasn't always a writer. When I went to college and majored in fine arts I was a painter. Then I was a stay-at-home mom.

Janet Evanovich | mom quotes

Since I can barely write two books a year the best solution seems to be co-author projects. My goal isn't to get another writer to clone me... it's more to produce a book that shares my vision of positive fun entertainment.

Janet Evanovich | positive quotes

Writing a novel is not merely going on a shopping expedition across the border to an unreal land: it is hours and years spent in the factories the streets the cathedrals of the imagination.

By age seven I used to comb my hair for performances just pull my hair up into a bun. Granted it wasn't a very intricate hairstyle. Still to be that responsible and disciplined at age seven is unusual.

Janet Jackson | age quotes

As a child I had to get up early for school or work. I'd get ready by myself. I'd set my alarm to wake me up very early in the morning and be off to work the family driver driving me every morning. I did it alone my parents never coming in to wake me up.

Janet Jackson | morning quotes

To have someone to relate to and hopefully enjoy the music and get a positive message out of it to make the best music that we possibly could those were the goals.

Janet Napolitano | change quotes

Now a lot of what we are doing right now quite frankly is because of what happened on Christmas. Many of the things were kind of in the works. We were already planning for example the purchase and deployment of advanced imaging technology. You call them body scanners. We call them AITs (Advanced Imaging Technologies).

Janet Napolitano | patience quotes

It would be unwise to say the least irresponsible of us at the TSA at the Homeland Security Department not to evolve our technology to match the changing threat environment that we inhabit.

Janet Napolitano | technology quotes

As part of our layered approach we have expedited the deployment of new Advanced Imaging Technology (AIT) units to help detect concealed metallic and non-metallic threats on passengers. These machines are now in use at airports nationwide and the vast majority of travelers say they prefer this technology to alternative screening measures.

Janet Napolitano | technology quotes

All images generated by imaging technology are viewed in a walled-off location not visible to the public. The officer assisting the passenger never sees the image and the officer viewing the image never interacts with the passenger. The imaging technology that we use cannot store export print or transmit images.

Janet Napolitano | technology quotes

But my view is that you need a system at the border. You need some fencing but you need technology. You need boots on the ground. And then you need to have interior enforcement of our nation's immigration laws inside the country. And that means dealing with the employers who still consistently hire illegal labor.

Janet Napolitano | technology quotes

What we're doing is making sure that we have a safe and secure border region from San Diego all the way to Brownsville. And that means manpower it means technology it means infrastructure it means interior enforcement. All you know kind of layered in appropriate ways and making sure like I said before the border is safe and secure.

Janet Napolitano | technology quotes

Janet Street-Porter | romantic quotes

The day of the wedding went like these things generally do full of anxious moments interspersed with black comedy.

Janet Street-Porter | wedding quotes

Jews have had to carry around their own sense of self in a carpet bag and I think perhaps too much emphasis might be being put on nationality and on the other hand patriotism that sort of thing.

Being an intellectual creates a lot of questions and no answers.

I've worked very hard in this book to keep the lines of communication open. I don't want to turn someone away from this information for partisan political reasons.

Jared Diamond | communication quotes

I decided that now is the time to start doing the things that really interest me and I find important. It was in the 10 years of the MacArthur grant that I began working on my first book... and I began putting more work into environmental history.

Jared Diamond | environmental quotes

Federal elections happen every two years in this country. Presidential elections every four years. And four years just isn't long enough to dismantle all the environmental laws we've got in this country.

Jared Diamond | environmental quotes

Introspection and preserved writings give us far more insight into the ways of past humans than we have into the ways of past dinosaurs. For that reason I'm optimistic that we can eventually arrive at convincing explanations for these broadest patterns of human history.

Jared Diamond | history quotes

The main thing that gives me hope is the media. We have radio TV magazines and books so we have the possibility of learning from societies that are remote from us like Somalia. We turn on the TV and see what blew up in Iraq or we see conditions in Afghanistan.

Jared Diamond | learning quotes

Thousands of years ago humans domesticated every possible large wild mammal species fulfilling all those criteria and worth domesticating with the result that there have been no valuable additions of domestic animals in recent times despite the efforts of modern science.

Jared Diamond | science quotes

Tasmanian history is a study of human isolation unprecedented except in science fiction - namely complete isolation from other humans for 10 000 years.

Jared Diamond | science quotes

We're uncomfortable about considering history as a science. It's classified as a social science which is considered not quite scientific.

Jared Diamond | science quotes

Biology is the science. Evolution is the concept that makes biology unique.

Jared Diamond | science quotes

Technology has to be invented or adopted.

Jared Diamond | technology quotes

Technology causes problems as well as solves problems. Nobody has figured out a way to ensure that as of tomorrow technology won't create problems. Technology simply means increased power which is why we have the global problems we face today.

Jared Diamond | technology quotes

I wasn't aware of my dad being an actor when I was young. I remember there was an Australian children's entertainer on television called Ralph Harris and when I'd say my father was an actor kids would say you know 'oh is he Ralph Harris?' And I had to say no and then they would lose interest.

Jared Harris | dad quotes

I keep mementos from everything I've done. I've got my cab driver's license from 'Happiness.' I've got a pair of glasses and a belt buckle from playing John Lennon. I've got a pair of sunglasses from playing Andy Warhol... It's all in a box in the garage.

Jared Harris | happiness quotes

My father was a Catholic but my mother wasn't. She had to do that weird deal you do as a Catholic - they deign to sanction your marriage and you have to bring your children up as Catholics.

Music is subjective to everyone's unique experience.

My mother is very very smart and commands respect because she has a lot of respect for herself.

Jared Leto | respect quotes

He's an innocent in a lot of ways. He's a very simple person who really doesn't have the resources or the strength ultimately to handle the situation.

Jared Leto | strength quotes

I've always liked Saturn. But I also have some sympathy for Pluto because I heard it's been downgraded from a planet and I think it should remain a planet. Once you've given something planetary status it's kind of mean to take it away.

Jared Leto | sympathy quotes

I was never interested in 'Teen Beat' like roles. I just wanted to work.

Jared Leto | teen quotes

I only did karaoke once in my life. It was with Courtney Love and it was a total disaster. She pulled me on stage in front of 500 people at a wedding. I'd never done karaoke before.

Jared Leto | wedding quotes

Whenever I drive under a yellow light I always kiss my finger and tap it on the roof of the car.

Jared Padalecki | car quotes

I'm a fan of horrors. I love the ones that make you jump. My girlfriend hates it. I've been dating her for one-and-a-half years and I'm crazy about her but she's terrified of horror films. Not the cute 'Will you hold me?' way but she's weeping. With 'House of Wax ' we'll be sleeping and I'll go to the bathroom and she's sitting up waiting for me.

Jared Padalecki | dating quotes

Pizza certainly has its place in school meals but equating it with broccoli carrots and celery seriously undermines this nation's efforts to support children's health and their ability to learn because of better school nutrition.

Jared Polis | health quotes

Gay marriage won't be more of an issue 25 years from now than interracial marriage is today.

Jared Polis | marriage quotes

Style used to be an interaction between the human soul and tools that were limiting. In the digital era it will have to come from the soul alone.

Jaron Lanier | alone quotes

What does it mean to not be alone? I've approached that question through music technology writing and other means.

Jaron Lanier | alone quotes

My parents were kind of like me in that they had tons and tons of weird amazing stuff.

Jaron Lanier | amazing quotes

Anonymous blog comments vapid video pranks and lightweight mash-ups may seem trivial and harmless but as a whole this widespread practice of fragmentary impersonal communication has demeaned personal interaction.

Jaron Lanier | communication quotes

Musicians and journalists are the canaries in the coalmine but eventually as computers get more and more powerful it will kill off all middle-class professions.

Jaron Lanier | computers quotes

My dad has sometimes felt that I grew up a little lacking in sufficient eccentricity - in the sense that I'm willing to live as an adult in a house with walls that are parallel to each other that sort of thing.

Jaron Lanier | dad quotes

After my mother's death I had such difficulty relating to people.

Jaron Lanier | death quotes

The wisdom of crowds works when the crowd is choosing the price of an ox when there's a single numeric average. But if it's a design or something that matters the decision is made by committee and that's crap. You want people and groups who are able to think thoughts before they share.

Jaron Lanier | design quotes

The basic problem is that web 2.0 tools are not supportive of democracy by design. They are tools designed to gather spy-agency-like data in a seductive way first and foremost but as a side effect they tend to provide software support for mob-like phenomena.

Jaron Lanier | design quotes

If there's any object in human experience that's a precedent for what a computer should be like it's a musical instrument: a device where you can explore a huge range of possibilities through an interface that connects your mind and your body allowing you to be emotionally authentic and expressive.

Jaron Lanier | experience quotes

Advertising is the edge of what people know how to do and of human experience and it explains the latest ways progress has changed us to ourselves.

Jaron Lanier | experience quotes

Web 2.0 ideas have a chirpy cheerful rhetoric to them but I think they consistently express a profound pessimism about humans human nature and the human future.

Jaron Lanier | future quotes

We're losing track of the vastness of the potential for computer science. We really have to revive the beautiful intellectual joy of it as opposed to the business potential.

Jaron Lanier | science quotes

I've always felt that the human-centered approach to computer science leads to more interesting more exotic more wild and more heroic adventures than the machine-supremacy approach where information is the highest goal.

Jaron Lanier | science quotes

Advertisers are not thinking radically enough - they look for technology to lead instead of trying the neuroscience approach and thinking about what parts of the brain haven't been activated before. These new experiences bring new capabilities to the brain.

Jaron Lanier | technology quotes

People try to treat technology as an object and it can't be. It can only be a channel.

Jaron Lanier | technology quotes

What does it mean to not be alone? I've approached that question through music technology writing and other means.

Jaron Lanier | technology quotes

Technologists provide tools that can improve people's lives. But I want to be clear that I don't think technology by itself improves people's lives since often I'm criticized for being too pro-technology. Unless there's commensurate ethical and moral improvements to go along with it it's for naught.

Jaron Lanier | technology quotes

If we allow our self-congratulatory adoration of technology to distract us from our own contact with each other then somehow the original agenda has been lost.

Jaron Lanier | technology quotes

I feel drawn to experiment with ways that technology can interact with notions of intimacy because so much of technology is done in a way that's very cold and has such an opposite effect.

Jaron Lanier | technology quotes

It is impossible to work in information technology without also engaging in social engineering.

Jaron Lanier | technology quotes

I think complexity is mostly sort of crummy stuff that is there because it's too expensive to change the interface.

Jaron Lanier | technology quotes

Style used to be an interaction between the human soul and tools that were limiting. In the digital era it will have to come from the soul alone.

Jaron Lanier | technology quotes

The wisdom of crowds works when the crowd is choosing the price of an ox when there's a single numeric average. But if it's a design or something that matters the decision is made by committee and that's crap. You want people and groups who are able to think thoughts before they share.

Jaron Lanier | wisdom quotes

You get to a certain age and you just want to prove that you can still rock - that you've still got it.

Jarvis Cocker | age quotes

I always thought that I might retire from any form of sexuality by the age of 40 and just become a dignified older person.

Jarvis Cocker | age quotes

Well once you've resigned yourself to the fact that you are the more mature pop performer and you're past the age you ever thought you would do it you might as well do it as long as you can. As long as I can still lift a microphone then I'll do it you know.

Jarvis Cocker | age quotes

I speak onstage to try to establish some method of communication. The songs are supposed to be a way of communicating. But speech and drinks and sometimes chocolates are also a way of communicating.

Jarvis Cocker | communication quotes

Unless you're living on the street and surviving on a diet of discarded turkey drumsticks there's no point in being gloomy. We've spent too long trying to cheer ourselves up by spending money on brightly coloured things we don't really need. We've stopped using our imaginations.

Jarvis Cocker | diet quotes

I think basically becoming famous has taken the place of going to Heaven in modern society hasn't it? That's the place where your dreams will come true. It's an act of faith now they think that's going to sort things out.

Jarvis Cocker | faith quotes

There's the famous thing that the A&R man from the record company is supposed to do: He's supposed to come into the studio and listen to the songs you've been recording and then say 'Guys I don't hear any singles.' And then everybody falls into a terrible depression because you have to write one.

Jarvis Cocker | famous quotes

I think basically becoming famous has taken the place of going to Heaven in modern society hasn't it? That's the place where your dreams will come true. It's an act of faith now they think that's going to sort things out.

Jarvis Cocker | famous quotes

As a shy kid growing up in Sheffield I fantasized about how it would be great to be famous so I wouldn't actually have to talk to people and feel awkward. And of course as we all know from fairy stories when you achieve that ambition you find out you don't want it.

Jarvis Cocker | famous quotes

Pulp existed for 12 years before we got famous. Now you could say that was just lack of imagination but it's some kind of quality isn't it? Tenacity. You could also say it was sloth.

Jarvis Cocker | famous quotes

I recently spent quite a bit of time in Sheffield England which is where I'm from. I wouldn't move back there but it's funny when you spend a bit of time in the place where you were brought up. You kind of realize how that place has had quite a big effect on you or made you a certain way.

Jarvis Cocker | funny quotes

Every woman I've had a relationship with has found this maddening the fact that I will talk about anything on the stage and reveal all this stuff and yet when I'm at home I clam up and won't discuss anything intimate or personal.

Jarvis Cocker | home quotes

I love the Beatles. I haven't named any kids after them but I still really love them. They were the first group that I was ever properly aware of. In my early teens I would sometimes stay in and listen to the radio all day in the hope that I would catch a song by them that I'd never heard before and be able to tape it on my radio-cassette player.

Jarvis Cocker | hope quotes

I am proud and more than a little excited to be asked to work with Faber in an editorial capacity. It is my dearest hope that we will produce some fantastic books together.

Jarvis Cocker | hope quotes

Pulp existed for 12 years before we got famous. Now you could say that was just lack of imagination but it's some kind of quality isn't it? Tenacity. You could also say it was sloth.

Jarvis Cocker | imagination quotes

Money isn't important but you have to have enough so you don't have to think about it. Thinking about money is a drag.

Jarvis Cocker | money quotes

Also because people like to multitask in a way if you've got a bit of music on in the background and the lyrical content is making you want to listen to it then that would probably put you off the texting you wanted to do. I think people like things that just make that right kind of noise but leave your brain free to do something else.

Jarvis Cocker | music quotes

You know when you get into that thing where people want to discuss the relationship? I'd rather discuss what was on telly avoid the issue discuss anything other than the relationship.

Jarvis Cocker | relationship quotes

Every woman I've had a relationship with has found this maddening the fact that I will talk about anything on the stage and reveal all this stuff and yet when I'm at home I clam up and won't discuss anything intimate or personal.

Jarvis Cocker | society quotes

When I was in Pulp I actively did more TV stuff because that was during the Great Britpop Wars and it seemed important to prove that indie people could speak. That war doesn't exist anymore.

Jarvis Cocker | war quotes

Young people discovering their sexuality must know they walk with a strong tradition and that they are not alone. They have a right to information without being pressured.

Jasmine Guy | alone quotes

If one is desperate for love I suggest looking at one's friends and family and see if love is all around. If not get a new set of friends a new family.

I always had an interest in fashion because my mom is a celebrity fashion stylist. I grew up being on set or in showrooms.

Jasmine Tookes | mom quotes

Before I go to bed at night I ice my face because it closes your pores and makes a difference in the morning.

Jasmine Tookes | morning quotes

I did a shoot for 'Sports Illustrated ' and my grandpa called me and asked when my issue of 'Playboy' was coming out. It was hilarious as well as embarrassing.

Jasmine Tookes | sports quotes

If you say 'I'm going to cut this song because I know the teenagers are going to love it ' well then you're going to alienate everybody else. When I cut my record I'm just going to cut the things that I like and whoever likes it likes it. That's too much work to try to figure out the demographic. That's too much like a business.

Jason Aldean | business quotes

In the music business especially the country music business every 10 years or so you're going to have this changing of the guard this wave of new artists that comes in.

Jason Aldean | business quotes

But for me I thought you made a record you got on a bus went out and played your shows and made a lot of money. That was the way it was supposed to go down. But there's a lot more to it than that. There are a lot of early mornings late nights a lot of traveling a lot of being away from home being away from your family.

Jason Aldean | family quotes

People see you onstage and the glamorous side but they don't see you traveling 600 miles a night eating truck stop food and spending by yourself staring at walls.

Macon has such a rich musical history - and the state of Georgia as well.

Jason Aldean | history quotes

But for me I thought you made a record you got on a bus went out and played your shows and made a lot of money. That was the way it was supposed to go down. But there's a lot more to it than that.

Jason Aldean | home quotes

My mom was a single mom and she had enough on her plate. I knew when I was doing something I wasn't supposed to and I tried to keep her from finding out about it. I did a pretty good job of that.

Jason Aldean | mom quotes

I'm very particular about the kind of music that I record and sing and it would be the same way about the kind of movies that I would do.

Jason Aldean | movies quotes

I think it's important for artists to work together. It's great for fans to see like Ludacris came out to our show in Atlanta and kinda made a surprise appearance there it shows a mutual respect for what each other does.

Jason Aldean | respect quotes

Country music in the mid-'90s was a big influence on my career and I played all the songs that are referenced in ''94' back in my club days. Joe Diffie was rocking a sick mullet and he was hotter than ever... just putting out monster hit after monster hit. It totally takes me back to those days and it makes me smile every time I hear it.

Jason Aldean | smile quotes

If you can go out with your live show and turn people on to that where you have that fan base that's religious and they're going to come see you when you're in that town once your radio success is gone and you're not a mainstream guy anymore you can still go out and play your shows.

Jason Aldean | success quotes

The 'Night Train' has already been a crazy ride for me. We flew around making TV appearances and stadium announcements all over the country fueled by little more than coffee and adrenaline... so many fans jumped on board with us and I couldn't be more thankful.

Jason Aldean | thankful quotes

I don't think I really have any wisdom. Stay out of trouble. Good luck. Stay away from women because they will burn you haha.

Throughout my 20s I spent a lot of time just playing and not really working but fortunately for me I continued to get just enough work and have a reason to wake up in the morning. I really empathize with some of my peers who had success in the early years then it dries up and so there's no reason to get up in the morning.

Jason Bateman | morning quotes

My goal is to get another 30 years out of this business. So I need to figure out the fuel to do that. And so far I think it's respect and quality and company not celebrity or box office or stardom. It's not a sprinter's approach. It's more like a long-distance thing. You can stick around a lot longer if you kind of slow-play it.

Jason Bateman | respect quotes

I played a ton of team sports growing up and team wins are just incredibly gratifying.

Jason Bateman | sports quotes

Jason Behr | mom quotes

Jason Biggs | cool quotes

But because it was able to balance that kind of humor with a sweet story and characters you really rooted for and also got across the girls' point of view I've heard nothing but great things from younger and older females as well.

Jason Biggs | humor quotes

Like anyone who goes to college you're leaving a familiar surrounding and a comfortable environment and your friends and everything and you're starting fresh. It can be pretty daunting.

Jason Biggs | movingon quotes

It's amazing when you're playing to a crowd who barely understands English but they're singing parts of your song back to you.

Jason Derulo | amazing quotes

I want somebody like my mom. My mom is a very charitable woman. She's the sweetest woman in the world. I'm looking for the second sweetest woman in the world. I'm looking for honesty and a big heart.

Jason Derulo | mom quotes

I'm a big sports guy - golf tennis baseball basketball snowboarding - and I love games.

Jason Dohring | sports quotes

My dad was in the army so we moved around a lot and I changed schools every year and had to make new friends and I found that if I was the funny guy I could do that easier.

Jason Gann | dad quotes

As a younger player you always kind of play with that fear of failure.

Jason Giambi | failure quotes

I got into shape because I took kick-boxing lessons every day to prepare for a fight scene with Taylor Lautner. I really wanted to lie down and eat Chinese food but I kick-boxed every morning and ran. If someone was filming you with your kit off you'd do the same thing.

Jason Isaacs | morning quotes

I don't know if it's a romantic comedy but I'm in the beginning of the first of the season of 'The West Wing.' We shot it last year. I don't know. If anyone asks me to be in one I'll jump on it.

Jason Isaacs | romantic quotes

When I was a little kid I used to play with guys twice my age so I was the last one picked so if I picked I knew that I had to get the ball to the scorer if I wanted to stay on the court so that was pretty much my job.

Jason Kidd | age quotes

Celebrities say they date other celebrities because they have the same job. But I think they just like dating famous people. Celebrities attract each other like cattle.

Jason Lee | dating quotes

When you reach a certain status in Hollywood you have to play a lot of games to stay in the limelight. It becomes more about being famous than being an actor.

Jason Lee | famous quotes

I wasn't a kid who moved out from Iowa with aspirations of becoming a famous star - I was intrigued by the idea of filmmaking and by the idea of what it would be like to play a character in a movie.

Jason Lee | famous quotes

Jason Lee | famous quotes

Growing up in Huntington Beach you were either a traditional sports athlete a skateboarder or a surfer. I got my first skateboard when I was five and skated off and on over the years did a little BMX racing as a kid and then in my freshman or sophomore year I started getting a little bit more into skateboarding.

Jason Lee | sports quotes

I wanted to be looked at for the skateboarder that I was. I didn't want to be the 36-year-old skateboarder who's still holding on while owning a company at the same time. I wanted to make my mark and travel and accomplish a few things here and there and then get out.

Jason Lee | travel quotes

I grew up skateboarding it was fun. I didn't think about money I didn't know how much professional skateboarders made. I just knew that if I became a professional skateboarder I would achieve a lot and get to travel and do these great things.

Jason Lee | travel quotes

Voice-acting on the fun meter is off the scale. You show up you don't have to be all primped up or dressed up. And you get to work with some amazing people and goof off for four hours.

Jason Mewes | mom quotes

I'm totally into new age and self-help books. I used to work in a bookstore and that's the section they gave me and I got way into it. I just loved the power of positive thinking letting yourself go.

Jason Mraz | age quotes

Music was always the distraction so it was the obvious choice to pursue. My dad always said to find a job I love to do that way it wouldn't feel like a job. So I did that.

Jason Mraz | dad quotes

I listened to the radio so I was influenced by everyone from Michael Jackson to Milli Vanilli. But thankfully my dad had a collection of Cat Stevens albums while my mom was listening to jazz.

Jason Mraz | dad quotes

Well my view before was a Western view and I certainly understand marriage equality and civil rights equal rights for all but having visited developing nations and some of the poorest nations in the world I realize how deep it goes and how much work really needs to be done to create equality for all.

Jason Mraz | equality quotes

It was a very bizarre experience for me to get the songs together go in there and try to deliver them as I would perhaps in a live setting. But I realized that I couldn't take on that coffeehouse style that I came from and go in there and burn it up.

Well for me what I've learned at the very end of this love is sharing and I think that really is for me the best place to go to experience love is sharing.

If I'm in a relationship that girl gets showered with letters from the road. I pour my heart into it.

Jason Mraz | relationship quotes

In my relationship I was giving myself away to make the relationship better but in actuality wasn't doing better by doing that. I became less of a man.

Jason Mraz | relationship quotes

It's easier to write from my own life and it's also more fun. I always write about relationships for instance whether they're romantic relationships friendships encounters... there's always a lesson to be learned from them.

Jason Mraz | romantic quotes

I always think of the live show first where the song is gonna go in the show. That's why they aren't sad songs. When I play I want to make people happy not sad. It's such a pleasure for me to do what I do and I want other people to feel some form of that pleasure too.

Jason Mraz | sad quotes

But my strength was in singing and songwriting which was a new discovery for me when I was 18. And I decided if I pursued songwriting which is what was closest to my heart then there would be no competition. I would just live my life being myself and living my dream.

Jason Mraz | strength quotes

Music is a weapon in the war against unhappiness.

Jason Mraz | war quotes

It all has to do with art - writing painting things I've done for a long time but just never had enough time to pursue. I have poetry - things that are designed for songs but they're always poems first.

Jason Newsted | poetry quotes

Can you design a Rorschach test that's going to make everyone feel something every time - and that looks like a Rorschach test? It's easy to show a picture of a kitten or a car accident. The question is how abstract can you get and still get the audience to feel something when they don't know what's happening to them?

Jason Reitman | car quotes

When characters change on screen it makes you feel better about yourself. You think 'Oh I change too I'm constantly becoming a better person.'

Jason Reitman | design quotes

I'd done table reads for my own screenplays and I always thought they were so much fun. Why couldn't we do these for other classic screenplays and bring them to life? You can experience live theater where you get to see plays produced by different directors and different casts but there's really nothing like that for movie scripts.

Jason Reitman | experience quotes

Selfishness narcissism being uncomfortable in your own skin not feeling connected to the world around you feeling dislocated from family and youth having a strange relationship with your childhood - all those things feel really true to me.

Jason Reitman | family quotes

I hear the way people talk about the children of famous people. They're not treated very well. The presumptions are usually quite awful. So I tried to establish myself with a couple of movies. After 'Juno' I thought: 'I think I've defined myself enough as my own director that I'd love to work with my father.'
