I'm just saying that at least for the foreseeable future there won't be any more touring. -Glenn Danzig

The public made me and then encouraged me for many years, and my future even now depends upon it. -Placido Domingo

Democrats have no agenda, no plan for the future, and no sense of leadership. -Jeff Miller

We owe at least this much to future generations, from whom we have borrowed a fragile planet called Earth. -Maurice Strong

I think and hope there are far more people aware of the need to look after our future. -Robin Day

An expectation is a future object, recognised as belonging to me. -Samuel Alexander

An object is not first imagined or thought about and then expected or willed, but in being actively expected it is imagined as future and in being willed it is thought. -Samuel Alexander

The problem with a purely collective system is not only that it requires economic growth, and the right sort of demographic trends, but that it prevents people thinking about their futures in a responsible way. -Jacques Delors

My duty as a teacher is to train, educate future programmers. -Niklaus Wirth

One of the interesting things here is that the people who should be shaping the future are politicians. But the political framework itself is so dead and closed that people look to other sources, like artists, because art and music allow people a certain freedom. -Thom Yorke

The people in charge, globally, are maniacs. They are maniacs, and unless we do something about it these people are going to deprive us of a future. -Thom Yorke

And sometimes I sit down to write, because that is what I like to do more and more in the future. -Jonathan Brandis

I imagine a future aircraft, which will take off vertically, fly as usual, and land vertically. This flying machine should have no moving parts. This idea came from the huge power of cyclones. -Henri Coanda

The German future lies in the hands of our Fuehrer. -Hjalmar Schacht

My vision is that our country should be integrated in the EU, to transfer a part of our independence there. It is also our duty to do it, if we want to establish trade and a sound economy. This is the vision that I am working on and I will continue to work in the future. -Ibrahim Rugova

Instead of seeing these children for the blessings that they are, we are measuring them only by the standard of whether they will be future deficits or assets for our nation's competitive needs. -Jonathan Kozol

I think experience will teach you a combination of liberalism and conservatism. We have to be progressive and at the same time we have to retain values. We have to hold onto the past as we explore the future. -Oliver Stone

The golden age has not passed; it lies in the future. -Paul Signac

By doing something positive in this world, you're helping people and the future. We're all trying to help the world… make it a better place to live. We're actually still changing the world, aren't we? -Rick Danko

I found, when I left, that there were others who felt the same way. We'd meet, they'd come and seek me out, we'd talk about the future. And I found that their depression and pessimism was every bit as acute as mine. -Wole Soyinka

If Congress refuse to listen to and grant what women ask, there is but one course left then to pursue. What is there left for women to do but to become the mothers of the future government? -Victoria Woodhull

The future is keeping you out of the present time. -Van Morrison

Why have we had to invent Eden, to live submerged in the nostalgia of a lost paradise, to make up utopias, propose a future for ourselves? -Julio Cortazar

Science fiction encourages us to explore… all the futures, good and bad, that the human mind can envision. -Marion Zimmer Bradley

Such decisions will be far reaching and difficult. But you never lacked courage in the past. Your courage is now needed for the future. -Gerry Adams

We do not know enough about how the present will lead into the future. -Gregory Bateson

The form of my poem rises out of a past that so overwhelms the present with its worth and vision that I'm at a loss to explain my delusion that there exist any real links between that past and a future worthy of it. -Hart Crane

I do most of my work with kids. They are the very foundation of our future. We are so incredibly disrespectful to them in America in every way because they can't vote. -Henry Winkler

But without the experience of actually singing or playing these things yourself, you don't have the same kind of involvement or understanding of what these musical moves mean. And that is a very big problem in addressing the future of music. -Michael Tilson Thomas

The future will be determined in part by happenings that it is impossible to foresee; it will also be influenced by trends that are now existent and observable. -Emily Greene Balch

I know there are going to be big challenges financially, but I'm excited artistically. I think that if the experience is better artistically, then we have more hope in the future. -Karen Kain

We who came here saw what was happening. This was far more than a war in a faraway place. This was a moral imperative, a terrible vision of the future. -Paddy Ashdown

We're all very sensitive that Jim has the shortest history with the band. He wants to be somewhat of a free agent. I'm just going to let time dictate how Jim's future evolves. -Thurston Moore

Therefore, I think that in the celebration of the 50 years of the present reign, there must be research on the changes that the country has undergone, and in the future, it could be used as a lesson for our future actions. -Bhumibol Adulyadej

As to judging our own time, and thereby gaining some basis for a judgment of future possibilities, we are doubtless not only too close to it to appraise it but too much formed by it and enclosed within it to do so. -Emily Greene Balch

The Olympic stadium may have been built only in the early 1970s but it was clear for a long time it had no future. For many reasons it is not good enough for modern football and today's fans. -Franz Beckenbauer
