We keep, in science, getting a more and more sophisticated view of our essential ignorance. -Warren Weaver

I've been getting a lot of science fiction scripts which contained variations on my 'Star Trek' character and I've been turning them down. I strongly feel that the next role I do, I should not be wearing spandex. -Marina Sirtis

It's a tough thing to know that when you're making your album, you're going to end up collaborating with, say, Wal-Mart, on your artwork. That just sucks. And the pressure behind getting the numbers real fast is, to me, dizzying. -Ben Folds

I attribute my entire football career, as far as getting me started, getting me interested, keeping me that way was my father. He went to every game even though he was crippled and wasn't real healthy. -Bob Lilly

Sometimes running for Congress is a four-year strategy in terms of getting out there and building a network. -Artur Davis

After a year or so I really thought I was Howard Hughes. Here I was at eighteen years old, getting all these checks. -Michael J. Fox

I don't get upset over things I can control, because if I can control them there's no sense in getting upset. And I don't get upset over things I can't control, because if I can't control them there's no sense in getting upset. -Mickey Rivers

For 70 nights, right across America, I've been getting out there with two ex-lovers and we've been playing songs which are so specific about each of us, you just wouldn't know. We're friends now but we can't forget what happened between us. -Stevie Nicks

You've got all these books on self help, getting to know yourself, doing the right thing, eating the so-called right foods, even down to what books you have on your shelves. People are encouraged to look to themselves first as opposed to being a part of society. -Samantha Morton

We have a pretty tough schedule coming up. We have to stay strong mentally and must focus on getting better. -Tony Parker

If you turn down work because you are frightened of getting typecast, you'll never do anything good. -Colin Baker

I guess my idea of a good audience is one that's quiet and listens, but also that's alive: they respond, they're getting the jokes, they're with me. And that' s been happening. -Dan Hicks

The reason I got into acting was not to explore myself. I was a reader, I didn't care about acting. I got into it in college, but I had no interest really in that, in getting up in front of anybody. -Campbell Scott

Sure, we've had our fair share of ups and downs, but I don't know if we've had more than any other rock band… we just have a way of getting ourselves into hot water. -Carl Wilson

We have to be focused on growing the party and getting young people to see us as a viable option. -Peter MacKay

I'm a writer. The more I act, the more resistance I have to it. If you accept work in a movie, you accept to be entrapped for a certain part of time, but you know you're getting out. I'm also earning enough to keep my horses, buying some time to write. -Sam Shepard

I'd studied dance in Chicago every summer end taught it all winter, and I was well-rounded. I wasn't worried about getting a job on Broadway. In fact, I got one the first week. -Gene Kelly

Just look at the messages today's media are sending everybody, from TV and commercials to actors and singers. Kids are just drowning in that 24-7 and it's getting really bad. -Evan Rachel Wood

Screenplays I didn't really care about, journalism, travel books, getting my writer friends to write about their dreams or something. I just determined to write the books I had to write. -Kazuo Ishiguro

I have always lived beyond my means. I am still trying to live beyond my means, but it is getting harder all the time. I am very rich. -Allan Sherman

The honest truth is that if this government were to propose the massacre of the first-born, it would still have no difficulty in getting it through the Commons. -Diane Abbott

All forms of tampering with human beings, getting at them, shaping them against their will to your own pattern, all thought control and conditioning is, therefore, a denial of that in men which makes them men and their values ultimate. -Isaiah Berlin

I have no doubts that it will be a major sport-in the United States. I'm probably not going to live to see that day because Americans are a little afraid of getting interested in something at which they're not very good. -Lamar Hunt

It's a little like casting out hundreds of fishing lines into the audience. You start getting little bites, then more, then you hook a few, then more. Then you can start reeling them in and that's a loveliest feeling – the whole audience laughing with you. -Jim Dale

I've never played a character where I've had so much fun on the physical end. I don't want to say I like it too much but it's fun having a gun on you and getting to manhandle men. -Charlotte Ross

Age is an ugly thing, and it goes on getting worse. -Diana Cooper

Maybe it's because I'm getting older, I'm finding enjoyment in things that stop time. Just the simple act of tasting a glass of wine is its own event. You're not downing a glass of wine in the midst of doing something else. -David Hyde Pierce

I'd read things, like people criticizing me. But no one likes to read stuff about that, and probably the main thing that was getting to me was me mum's illness. -Jack Osbourne

I wasn't sure what I was getting into when I signed on to work with a wrestler. -Kelly Hu

I'm not getting frustrated… we all knew from the start that this would be a long process. -Dick Spring

Love consists in giving without getting in return; in giving what is not owed, what is not due the other. That's why true love is never based, as associations for utility or pleasure are, on a fair exchange. -Mortimer Adler

Success is falling nine times and getting up ten. -Jon Bon Jovi

I need them, need them to give me a kick up the arse. Otherwise I'd just be sat-in getting fat, counting me money. It's good people living on your doorstep and looking through your bins. Gives you energy. -Liam Gallagher

I made over forty Westerns. I used to lie awake nights trying to think up new ways of getting on and off a horse. -William Wyler

How do you win? By getting average players to play good and good players to play great. That's how you win. -Bum Phillips

I've a grand memory for forgetting. -Robert Louis Stevenson

What she did was to open our eyes to details of country life such as teaching us names of wild flowers and getting us to draw and paint and learn poetry. -Laurie Lee

As far as I was concerned the important thing was that the music was getting the attention as well as me so it was always a great way to get more of the public to connect with classical music, and opera particularly. -Lesley Garrett

It would be fun to do a reunion show. I hope we do it some day, but it better be soon. We're all getting on. -William Christopher

Maybe I've lost a little, but I think everyone does over time. People have been writing that I'm getting old every year, and eventually they're going to be right. There's nobody in this game that's doing the same things they once did in the peak years of their career. -Randy Johnson

My number one goal was not getting 'A's' – and I proved it. I was a 'C' student. You have to be ready to learn. If you're not interesting in learning, it doesn't work. As I grew older and wanted to learn and desperately wanted inside information, learning was a lot easier. -Brian Lamb

I'd like my records to reach as many people as possible, but I'm also thinking in terms of how I can keep from getting jaded or unhappy with the process. -Will Oldham

It hasn't been hard getting nominated, but winning it is another thing. The competition is tough. -Gary Burton

A lot of these people were getting to where they didn't need help anymore. You have to start all over again. -Sam Worthington

To supply people for ages in camps makes no sense… you have to rebuild that cabana that they rent out to tourists on the weekend. They need help getting their fields repaired and their boats repaired. -Sam Worthington

And I used to go the punk clubs such as a gay club in Poland Street that everyone would go to because it was the only place you could go to looking like that without getting beaten senseless. -Gary Numan

I'd been a Bowie fan before punk and used to get no end of trouble. I was always getting knocked about and having to run up the street, getting chased by people. It was horrible. -Gary Numan

Unlike any other time in our history, we have to know that staying in school and getting an education is the most important thing you can do. -Alexis Herman

We're in this period where we're getting good data rates. I would say we're getting data rates that are like the data rates we got when we launched RealAudio in 1995. -Rob Glaser

He was certainly in a confused state. I used to go and visit him in Callan Park. They were really – to me they were the best poets those two writing in those days but it wasn't very encouraging because, well, they weren't getting far were they? -Robert Adamson

The worlds I paint leave a lot to engage the imagination by hinting at what lies beyond the four edges of the painting. I think getting beyond the four edges of an opportunity or challenge is one of the basic skills you need in business. -Thomas Kinkade

It used to be that you came out of school, and you got married – those who were going to get married. But my peers are getting married in their early 30s, so now there's like this extra 10 years of that angst. -Zach Braff

I didn't plan to act, but I'm glad I'm doing it – and I just want to keep getting better. -Meg Tilly

I'm certainly getting a lot more mail… that's basically it. -Sam Mendes

I love getting ready to do a scene, and thinking about it, and talking about it. But the rest of the time, I'm so nervous and obsessed. I'm just tearing my hair out in the trailer. The whole time I'm really tense. -Casey Affleck

The only difference from one $100 million budget film to another is which of the 12 box stars are getting $20 million to be in it. -Dirk Benedict

I started acting when I was 13 in New York. Worked there for a couple years, then auditioned for a show there that was going to be filming here. Ended up coming out, getting the job and just staying. -Kristanna Loken

There's a lot of money with a lot of big law firms that have a tremendous amount at stake by getting the right language to convince the right jury that my client is either innocent or that the opposition is guilty. -Frank Luntz

The marketing department is really an important part of getting an animated film to work. If the people running it are used to selling live action films and the hard rock music and the sex and all those things… Anything outside that, they just don't know what to do with it. -Don Bluth

If you look at the game and everything, it's not quite like looking at an animated film, because that's total character. This, this is really movement, but it's got funny little things if you look for the humor. They're actually getting to the character. -Don Bluth

We started getting the script to different people and we were in the business of trying to fund it so we could get it off and running, and all the characters and sets designed and everything. -Don Bluth

I write when the urge hits me, getting the words down as fast as I can type and then I step back from what I just wrote and start a dialectical process where I begin challenging my own writing. -Donald McKay

The pressure of getting an order right is greater than sinking a putt. -Amy Alcott

You just don't give up. There have been times when everything seemed to conspire against getting a book done or printed, and I would feel like turning my back on the whole thing. But I came back and persisted. -Dee Brown

We're having a blast. Just four friends getting together. -Alex Van Halen

I think movies are good for getting into dream states or exploring weird alternate states of thinking. -Alex Winter

Coppola has problems getting financing, so why should I not have problems getting financing. -Alex Winter

My mom is many times responsible for getting us all together, but we trade off at each other's houses. My brother and I are actors and are traveling a lot of our job. -Beau Bridges

If something is going on in my life, it winds up getting into my strip. -Bill Griffith

So when bands work with me and it's 10 o'clock, usually you'd have to be getting out of the studio, we could go on until 2 in the morning cause it's my place! -Billy Sherwood

Everyone is really getting along with each other and we enjoy each others company and love playing live. -Billy Sherwood

Yeah, well that's the best thing about it, I think, is knowing kids and kids getting mental when they know you're in it. Any kid you meet and anyone I know tells the kid you're in it and they get short of breath. -David Thewlis

I think that between the egos of the actors and the wrestlers in this country we are taking away from the truly dedicated and informed people who should be getting their voice heard. -Dwayne Hickman

I will say we now, in the polling in Wisconsin, much different than many other races, the public didn't perceive that we were getting a fair shake from the media. -Scott McCallum

You're getting to know who the great chefs are through their books. -Thomas Keller

I hope the cooks who are working for me now are getting that kind of experience so they can use what they're learning now as a foundation for a great career. -Thomas Keller

I am very proud of what we have built in Spain, because it is not a traditional Formula 1 country. I think we have found passionate fans, and built up a strong culture for the sport – and things are improving every day, with more and more people getting interested. -Fernando Alonso

Those people who shun us just because of the label we're on, or the fact that we've got a video out there that's getting us somewhere, are only limiting themselves, because they aren't keeping an open mind. -Joel Madden

I like getting toilet paper thrown at me. -Joel Madden

As a young man you don't notice at all that you were, after all, badly affected. For years afterwards, at least ten years, I kept getting these dreams, in which I had to crawl through ruined houses, along passages I could hardly get through. -Otto Dix

Twilight is about getting older and relationships – not about a murder mystery. It's about love when you reach a certain age; nothing is in primary colors. -Robert Benton

I want to promote poetry to the point where you got all the baldhead kids running around doing poetry, getting the music out of the way and having only words, the spoken word, and then see what happens. -Russell Simmons

I think that most people who write about music just want to fill some paper. They're not really interested in getting to the heart of something. Otherwise, they wouldn't write what they write. -Tim Gane

Most young people were getting jobs in big companies, becoming company men. I wanted to be individual. -Haruki Murakami

I applaud my mother now for getting me through that time and making me believe in myself. -Leah Remini

When the generation after me started getting on the cut, a lot of them would call me over to hang out or go jam and scratch and they were always separate from each other. -Eric San

I don't think the schools are getting as much money as they should. -Matt Gonzalez

It breaks my heart to see these young, really talented bands getting chewed up into the system. I remember a time if you'd signed to a major label it was such a sell out! But now… unless you've signed to a big label, you're a failure now. -Mike Peters

One day it was about getting married that mother talked with me, and I said I was so glad that when you didn't like being married, or got tired of your husband, you could get Unmarried. -Eleanor Porter

So, I'm getting less chips, paying the same amount of money. Is that legal for them to do this? -Julie Chen

Learn to say no in situations where saying no can be difficult, where it could mean getting fired. Say no anyway, because it could lead you to greater opportunities. -Samuel Dash

I challenge myself everywhere, onstage, on the golf course. Hey, isn't that the point of it all? To keep getting better? Otherwise why do it? -Hal Linden

I look in music magazines now and see things on Luther Allison, and my name's getting out there more, thanks to all the good people at Alligator Records and at my management company. -Luther Allison

I think of marriage as a garden. You have to tend to it. Respect it, take care of it, feed it. Make sure everyone is getting the right amount of, um, sunlight. -Mark Ruffalo

You're getting everyone's point of view at the same time, which, for me, is the perfect state for a novel: a cubist state, the cubist novel. -Michael Ondaatje

I'm getting tired of answering the same questions every day. -Milton Bradley

The fans have played a massive part in getting us to where we are, but the job's not finished. -Steven Gerrard

Well, I don't throw things. This particular night I brought one from the floor so to speak, and he ended up getting a cut over his head, and the police came, took him to another side of the hotel, and that was like September 6, 1981. -Tanya Tucker

There is a price for popularity. Critics look for your weaknesses, your flaws, anything that makes the work seem like a fluke and not seem worthy of all the attention it's getting. -Terry McMillan

The bungle tour is a bit up in the air due to the fact this at we are getting screwed by our overseas label. -Trevor Dunn

I was getting a lot of hassles from the public. Everybody recognized me. -Henry Thomas

What most people didn't realize in the Western countries is that here its not a question of having supporters, its a question of getting these votes to the polling stations. -Imran Khan

If you have Palestinians who have no hope, who don't have a job, who've used up all their resources, the notion of getting rid of violence is a dream. -James Wolfensohn

I started getting letters from college in the tenth grade. -James Worthy

And getting married this autumn was certainly an additional incentive to spend rather more time in England. -Jill Dando

This kind of music was just hitting England, so we were getting this following in clubs in Birmingham just cause we were trying to do something different. -Jim Capaldi

I'm friends with Carla Olsen and she's doing a lot of producing these days. She's getting quite a little collection of records that she's produced. She's real busy. -Kathy Valentine

Obviously, the hit singles get the biggest reaction – that's when you can see people really getting excited. -Kathy Valentine

My way was not to be the petite, gorgeous, little cheerleader. My way of getting by was making people laugh. -Kristen Johnston

There are nights when you can feel stale because you've fallen into a pattern by touring too much, but it's easy to get out of it by deliberately getting in trouble and playing yourself into a corner to then see if you can get out of it. -Leo Kottke

The other day at a drive-through, I reminded the teenage girl serving me that she forgot my drinks. She looked at me, hissed, rolled her eyes, and then took her sweet time getting me the sodas. -Neil Cavuto

I got to spend all of my time every day at work reading and editing papers about cutting-edge technical research and getting paid for it. Then I'd go home at night and turn what I learned into science fiction stories. -Kevin J. Anderson

It was like there was a pile of kindling that was in the back of my imagination just waiting there. Once I lit it, it just flared up and I kept getting ideas and ideas. -Kevin J. Anderson

I like conventions. I like meeting and greeting. I'm perched on that edge where I'm getting more attention than I quite know what to do with, though. -Laurell K. Hamilton

I've spent my career trying to help people without connections understand what's going on so that they have a chance of getting a fair shake from the connected and the powerful. -Allan Sloan

Some women have said, 'Gee, here I am getting involved with this fat guy, what will people think of me?' But they were converted and sometimes surprised. -Daniel Pinkwater

It was still quiet in the house, and not a sound was heard from outside, either. Were it not for this silence, my reverie would probably have been disrupted by reminders of daily duties, of getting up and going to school. -Hermann Hesse

That's a curious paradox that I don't think a lot of people out there know; that you get really scared before you go on. You come out in a nervous rash, and it's not like you actually love getting up there and showing off. -Jacqueline McKenzie

And if you're getting a poll coming out month after month saying something and then all of a sudden does an enormous swing in one direction – you are dealing with a more volatile electorate than most people believe they have. -Jim Bolger

You're talking to somebody who two years ago couldn't figure out how to use e-mail and who now has carpal tunnel. It has totally changed in that these films would not be getting out to people the way they're getting out without the Internet. -Robert Greenwald

I'm just never getting there. I'm getting round to it. I'm beginning to understand it a bit more. -Mark E. Smith

The key to Operations at Wal-Mart is their ability to maintain the highest standards while at the same time getting things done with lockstep execution. -Michael Bergdahl

The reason we're getting bombed is 'cause we were on one side, and we're gonna remain on that side. We can't waver because these are our enemies right now. I'm sorry. I'm gonna say it out loud. The Arabs, that's right, are our enemies. That's right. -Jimmie Walker

We have to have a way of dealing with this that engenders confidence, trust, gives us every chance of getting the right outcome and boosts both sustainability and economic return at the same time. -John Anderson

It is important that people support prisoners of the Italian state like Joe in whatever way they can. I was not allowed contact with a lawyer for the first 24 hours, and no phone calls were permitted, but apparently telegrams have been getting through to Joe. -John Blair

And now they are getting married, and I'm still single! What's wrong with me? -Mark McKinney

I think you could make a completely Virtual Centre, though I have a general feeling, and maybe because I am getting very old, that you still need face to face. -Richard Rogers

It's been a rollercoaster ride. There have been some great moments and some low points… like when I was leaving Stax. That's when I actually thought of getting out of the business. -William Bell

There was some scene in The Blues Brothers movie, when they had the chicken wire across the front of the stage, and it was almost like that. They had a big guard rail around the stage, which kept the college kids from getting on… we had some good times. -William Bell

I would not have done much differently, but I would have loved to have done everything better. The truth is, I think I was just getting warmed up when the era ended. -William Jackson

I'm taking my time. I feel much more confident, and every day I feel like I'm getting better. -Miguel Cabrera

Making my class laugh and getting in trouble. I was the class clown. -R. L. Stine

That U.N. Security Council resolution requires getting Syrian troops and intelligence officials out of Lebanon so that the Lebanese can have elections here this spring that are free and fair and free of outside influence. -Stephen Hadley

When I started writing it was kind of hard getting people to do my stuff. They' say they couldn't do my style. -Otis Blackwell

I always figured it was best if I write my songs, take them to my publisher and just lay back. There used to be so many things going on – getting to the artist, getting to the publishers – you know, politics. I just didn't want to get mixed up in all of that. -Otis Blackwell

I'm very wary of large groups of people getting together and trying to believe the same thing. It never seems to end well, whether it's political or religious or whatever. -Peter Krause

These dudes were 30 years old, and they would compete about getting the best chick. That came before their friendships. Some of them treat women like they're objects. I never felt like that. -Brian Welch

I'm playing a very strong character, it's the story of the woman Polish Jews out of the Warsaw ghetto. I've just begun my weapons training and the SAS type training that's getting me fit. -Sadie Frost

I'm getting a wider circle of fans now. More women, more middle class people. -James Ellroy

I think as long as there are folks on the fringe who want to make movies, the indie scene will still be around. I do think it's getting harder to get them seen though. -Joshua Leonard

You can have information and ease of use and have artistic integrity at the same time. The art of being a good Web designer is getting yourself into that middle ground and treating it as a final destination instead of as a compromise. -Mike Davidson

Writing old school HTML code was never very much fun but now it's getting downright tedious for most people. -Mike Davidson

If you look at my career, towards the end you will see I was fighting like once a year. I was not part of the Don King top heavyweights, so I was kind of kept out. His guys were getting three to four fights a year and I could only get one. -Gerry Cooney

I know that the work is good and they're excited over at ABC and Disney and it's getting some really good feedback. It's not just a little, insignificant kind of role. It's meaty, which is good. -Josh Holloway

I see my job as being to facilitate the life of clinical researchers so that they can be more productive, and trying to keep the bureaucracy from getting in their way. -Alastair Wood

We need to enact a strong standard that will stop a terrorist or illegal alien from getting a driver's license because border security is a major concern in a post-September 11th world. -Bill Shuster

Now I am near to the getting of my crown, which shall be sure; for I bless the Lord, and desire all of you to bless Him that He hath brought me here, and makes me triumph over devils, and men, and sin: they shall wound me no more. -Donald Cargill

And, one thing I definitely enjoyed personally, from a selfish point of view, was exploration and going to places that I had never been to before and learning, you know, meeting the people and getting to know, new sights and sounds, etc. -Duane G. Carey

Those folks out in the space suits are going to be getting beat up. -Duane G. Carey

Now you're coming back to Earth, and things are getting more and more dynamic. -Duane G. Carey

I see it as one of my jobs to make sure that, it sounds ridiculous, but to make sure the folks are eating, make sure folks are getting enough fluids, make sure folks are, you know, comfortable in the orbiter. -Duane G. Carey

Because when we're in space, my job is primarily getting us there and getting us back. -Duane G. Carey

And besides, I'm so in Dutch with my neighbors here that I thought that was better than getting them all upset with what might be a fake bomb scare where they'd have to clear out the whole neighborhood. -Ernst Zundel

I think my character's getting to the point where he can't even eat spaghetti with red sauce anymore, where he has horrible nightmares, he can't sleep anymore. -George Eads

They're getting more and more experience on what to expect, and the Hellboy audience is such a faithful and fanatic audience as I am, and you have to really be very open about what you do. -Guillermo del Toro

I have sung to large crowds since then, and there is a feeling that once you get over 100,000 people, you kind of lose the control element, you don't know if you are really getting through or not. -Joe Cocker

Don't go on American Idol, I think you'll spend the rest of your life living it down and I think it's getting kinda scary, isn't it? -Joe Cocker

I'm getting sick and tired of doing anything half-way. -Knute Rockne

You start making movies and people start seeing when you go to places, and all of a sudden you are getting clothes for free and all of a sudden you are getting food for free. -Morris Chestnut

I'm getting to the point where they see me as a good actor, rather than just a good guy who can act. -Morris Chestnut

I also wanted to do something that I hadn't really seen in almost any black novels, which was a complex love story in which both people were extremely intelligent and talented and understood a lot of things and were still at odds getting it together. -Stanley Crouch

But now I'm getting that spiritual motivation to visit Africa. -Dennis Brown

If you look at a record under a microscope, the high frequencies are short jagged edges… and the low frequencies are long swinging ones are deep bass sounds. When it cut it at half speed, you're getting more of those on the record. -Herb Alpert

We are tired out in making complaints and getting no redress. -Joseph Brant

As I noted in my Nobel lecture, an early insight in my work on the economics of information concerned the problem of appropriability – the difficulty that those who pay for information have in getting returns. -Joseph Stiglitz

He has a very extensive public relations apparatus that is paid for by the taxpayers of this state. They are some of the best in the business. and he is a master at getting not only television but other media exposure on the basis of confrontation and chaos. -Bill Scott

So I've been pushed farther and farther out into the mountains, but at the same time realizing that that experience is really nice and I'm glad I'm getting pushed out there farther. -Craig Kelly

One person can take papers, photograph them without getting excited, return them, and give them away without any scruples; while someone else has to overcome an enormous obstacle. -Markus Wolf

I think if I had to do it over again, I'd do it the same way. I would just put more resources into getting the public diplomacy part much stronger than we were able to. -John Poindexter

I took a private lesson, but it didn't really work out, so I went back to playing along with records. That's really the thing that got me into playing a lot – getting excited about playing along with my favorite bands like Zeppelin and Black Sabbath. -Chad Smith

Playing well with others is important – not being too flashy, just keeping good time and of course coming up with cool beats. A good snare drum, kick drum, high hat. Just getting good at the hand feet coordination. -Chad Smith

I believe that our office has clearly been the leader in building coalitions, in getting other universities across the contrary to interact more effectively with the government and particularly the Congress. -Charles Vest

It's like a prehistoric reflex, you know, going out and getting the meat and bringing it back to the cave. You feel you're supposed to make it better, but more than likely she's asking you to tell her how you feel. -Fred Ward

The time has mainly gone on getting Inform into a decent shape for public use. I suppose the plot of 'Curses' makes a sequel conceivable when compared with, say, the plot of 'Hamlet' but none is planned. -Graham Nelson

But I couldn't cut that whole septic tank scene out because the audience liked it so much. So I sort of fell right back into getting a cheap laugh, but I still loved it. -Jay Roach

I hope we're all kind of influencing each other now to keep the quality up on those things. They seem to be getting better and better and better as there's not only sort of a film geek audience, there's also a general interest in the overall film consuming population. -Jay Roach

I had a brief theater background and loved the backstage world there's more backstage work in television, so I saw a job advertised and applied, and got it. That was back in 1977, when getting jobs was easy. -Lee Child

So, how to stay inside the world of entertainment without actually getting another job? I felt the only logical answer was to become a novelist. So I wrote the first book – driven by some very real feelings of desperation – and it worked. -Lee Child

The kind of society which we still have is maybe, in some cases, getting worse. Competition is becoming a virtue. Intense competition drives people to go more and more into self-interest. Even to see other folks as competition. -Major Owens

I said, 'Okay, it's the year 2000, I'm getting a computer and a Palm Pilot.' I know how to check my e-mail, and I've listed some phone numbers on it. Half the time the battery has gone out so I can't use it. -Marc Jacobs

I think I do too many voices in these shows. I think it's because we have trouble getting voice talent. -Mike Judge

Stealing, you'll go far in life. Actually, there is something funny about getting away with it. -Mike Judge

I enjoy getting things done. My philosophy is the edge, the edge of something. There's where we have to go in local government, in not only the philosophy but the creativity in people around you. They have to go to the edge. -Richard M. Daley

We also need people like social workers, volunteers, the Christian Industrial League, drug treatment programs to make sure you are getting them a job. That's what you have to do. Otherwise, we just keep stepping around these things. -Richard M. Daley

A Bush Administration will, I believe, enjoy a better relationship with the new Congress, although President-elect Bush will be faced with real challenges in getting along with the Congress. -Richard V. Allen

And getting stunt coordinator Dan Bradley and everybody from the whole 'Bourne Supremacy' crew, I think was real cool for our film because we do a bunch of really big jumps in this movie. -Seann William Scott

I'm not likely to forget where I've been and what I've done and learned. I think it's just as important to play new instruments as to play new pieces. The old ones are getting scarcer and the new ones more and more wonderful. -Yo-Yo Ma

Being on a sitcom stops me from getting Alzheimer's. -Jerry Stiller

I hate everything about airports from getting there to taking off. -Honor Blackman

There are scores you have to write objectively without getting involved. -Alex North

I get mad at people who talk about traumatic job interviews, about going on one and getting rejected. I get rejected all the time and not only do I get rejected, but people have no problem being really specific about why I was rejected. -Julia Sweeney

When I start getting close to the end of a novel, something registers in the back of my mind for the next novel, so that I usually don't write, or take notes. And I certainly don't begin. I just allow things to percolate for a while. -Richard Russo

I've seen a lot of real out-of-line attitudes since I have been in the WWF and those people are still there or are getting a second or third chance or something like that. -Jerry Lawler

Sounds so silly, but I want to accomplish getting my kids through college. -Treat Williams

And that's how I wrote to NICAP, but then later, just very soon after that, like three weeks later, we started getting phone calls from government agents. -Betty Hill

The group started getting bigger and bigger, so Al started replacing Brian on the road, and then finally there was a big flare-up with Dave Marks and he left the group. -Bruce Johnston

But, you know again, getting back to what a group like ours might represent – the cleanliness thing. -Bruce Johnston

And I believe that public broadcasting has an important trust with the American people, it's an intimate medium of television, and that we can do reading and language development for young children without getting into human sexuality. -Margaret Spellings

Conventional wisdom holds that setting a timetable for getting American troops out of Iraq would be a mistake. -Nick Clooney

People going into the cities for the opportunities and the towns are getting older, no young people. -Rachel Griffiths

I grew up on cricket and I think Australian kids are getting so Americanized, you know? -Rachel Griffiths

It was a lovely opportunity for the first time in my whole career to stand up and thank people who are really responsible for me getting to realize my dreams. -Rachel Griffiths

There's nothing as exciting as a comeback – seeing someone with dreams, watching them fail, and then getting a second chance. -Rachel Griffiths

When we rehearse, we're always trying to aim for something else. But we never quite succeed in getting there. -Colin Greenwood

My schedulers keep getting driven crazy by the fact that they can't fit hikes in my schedule. -Gale Norton

It wasn't all spent on practicing, I did do other things! but the classical guitar means a lot to me so I spend many hours building good chops and getting a good program together. -Jim Sullivan

Yeah, I do feel badly sometimes, not for whose coming up and getting roles I'm not right for anymore but the people I compete with, who range from Uma Thurman on up. -Kelly Lynch

I felt that K wasn't getting a fair shake anyway. -Nicholas Lea

It was quite a ride and very conflicting for me, too – to be nominated for an Oscar, to be straight and healthy, and to be getting all these accolades while these people around me were suffering and dying from AIDS. -Bruce Davison

I get bored with establishing shots of people getting out of cars and walking into buildings, getting into elevators and then 45 seconds later they have a line. -Dick Wolf

I do love television. But the business is accelerating and people are not getting the chance to fail. -Dick Wolf

TIVO executives stand up and say, 'Well, we're not getting rid of commercials, but we are letting them fast forward, because people like commercials, and if they see one that they like they stop and watch it.' I mean, please. -Dick Wolf

Every time I find a picture of him with other women, or read in magazines that he's involved with 'groupies,' I don't go and show up where he is making a huge scene and getting our faces put all over the TV and papers. -Kim Mathers

People keep saying, 'Oh, you're getting all these great reviews, that must make you really happy.' I guess it does, but mostly it's just a relief. -Michael Chabon

If we win, someone else loses. But if someone else loses, we lose. Which is a point we're not getting. The new spirituality will make this just painfully obvious. -Neale Donald Walsch

This has resulted in more and more people becoming inner-directed and having as their only goal, getting as much as they can get out of the system and putting as little into it as possible. -Robert Teeter

It's incredible, but I think a lot of people it shot over their heads 'cause they're used to just getting images and messing around with them, and for us to do something quite so 'designed' was a bit of a shock. -Sean Booth

The Internet's kinda in danger of getting heart disease pretty soon, I think. Arteries are getting clogged. -Sean Booth

I hate the idea of getting in a building that someone else has designed and having to do something to it yourself to sort of dress it up – it's like using presets in your tracks. -Sean Booth

The real reason we ended up getting into that type of music was our dad worked for an oil company so we spent a year overseas when we were young kids. Because of that, it was all Spanish TV and radio so we ended up having these '50s and '60s tapes, tapes of that music. -Zac Hanson

The hardest part was getting the window net hooked back. I didn't think I was ever going to get it hooked. I finally got it hooked. If I'd known that I wouldn't have tried to hook it. -Sterling Marlin

I think there are huge lessons there, for young people who are getting started in life, as well as other people. And that is, to take responsibility for your own life. Only you are responsible for the course you take from there. -Story Musgrave

When I got my PhD, it was a time when there were just no jobs for PhDs. Period. PhDs were getting the lowest paid technician jobs, if they were lucky, in any kind of science. -Shannon Lucid

It was just really, really tough getting anything when you were a female. Basically, I just took advantage of everything I could. But when people are going to flat out tell you they're not going to hire anyone that's female, there's not much you can do about it. -Shannon Lucid

Things change and work changes. Right now I like the idea of enveloping a space and getting messages across that connect to the world in ways that seem familiar but are different. -Barbara Kruger

I've fallen back on this periodically, although I must say that getting out of the grocery business ranked right up there with getting out of the army as one of the happier experiences of my life. -David Eddings

It seems to be the thing now that young people are getting back into politics. -Susan George

If you watch the show and the characters don't look at each other while they're talking, the actors probably aren't getting along. -Victoria Pratt

It's frustrating actually, the time involved in getting something released these days. My new CD has actually been finished for a year. It's only now that it's being released. -Mick Taylor

It's not rubbish to say that I was a bit peeved about not getting credit for a couple of songs, but that wasn't the whole reason. I guess I just felt like I had enough. I decided to leave and start a group with Jack Bruce. -Mick Taylor

I'd come from the bottom of the barrel. Just Owen Hart getting out of the shadow of Bret Hart's little brother. Everyone figured, this is a joke, Owen's going to get squashed. -Owen Hart

I certainly would have regretted not getting into wrestling. It's been very lucrative for me and I've been fortunate to get into it and make money and not do anything stupid where I invested in something that collapsed. -Owen Hart

I find it hard to take rock groups very seriously or treat them with respect. There is something absurd about these gloomy young men getting together and banging away. -Robert Wyatt

It was physically difficult, adjusting to wheelchair life, but I remember a great relief and happiness that I was finally getting somewhere, finding musicians to work with that were sympathetic. -Robert Wyatt

I wrapped 'Buffy' and I always felt on 'Buffy' that they wanted to keep me younger for a specific reason. It seemed like I was getting younger every year that I was on the show. I think there was a reference to me being 15, then 14. -Michelle Trachtenberg

Well, I've thought many times when my career was in the toilet, that I was going to have to seriously consider getting another job, I don't know what I'd do. -Aaron Eckhart

As many of the riders before me had been held up and robbed of their packages, mail and money that they carried, for that was the only means of getting mail and money between these points. -Calamity Jane

I'm open to getting more equipment, but I really won't have time to look into that until after the tour. -Daisy Berkowitz

No one inspired me to write, but writer Harlan Ellison terrified me into getting published. -Dan Simmons

We had common interests in the beauty of the French language. We both had a tremendous love of jazz. We shared dreams of getting married and having a family, living in the country, leading an idyllic life. -David Amram

I am doing everything humanly possible to try and get well, but lately things have just kept getting worse. -Daniel Johns

I regarded drugs as somewhat like rattlesnakes – it's possible to pick one up without getting bit, but why bother? -Elizabeth Moon

A lot of people in my life are getting sick or potentially going to get sick from tobacco. -Jeremy London

In our early period we pretty much survived or perished on our capacity to reach people, and on getting into the pattern of having no money and playing lots of shows. -Peter Garrett

I don't like getting patted down and taking off my shoes at the airport. -Rebecca Miller

For these cultures, getting rid of the pain without addressing the deeper cause would be like shutting off a fire alarm while the fire's still going. -David Foster Wallace

I think we're really getting it right the last few months and hopefully we'll get better and better at it. -David Talbot

You've come to me now at this point in time, when The Neptunes are just now getting our light. -Chad Hugo

I spent some time at White Memorial Medical Center as a senior medical student doing a rotation in surgery; however, I felt I wasn't getting enough time assisting. -Samuel Wilson

I'm lucky to be in a profession where you can keep getting better. -Cy Coleman

Returning to South Carolina meant getting a normal job in a normal town with normal people and marrying a normal person. I wanted the glamour and opportunity of the world. -Donna Rice

I'll be helping them getting suited up, getting them in the airlock, getting the airlock prepared, and getting them out the hatch, and then talking them through these three spacewalks. -Mark Kelly

I think the intelligent thing about it is that you have to carefully listen to it all to grasp it, and because I'm not in every scene – colossal disappointment to everybody that it may be – I'm not getting the full picture here today while recording it. -Paul Darrow

Nothing gives me as much pleasure as travelling. I love getting on trains and boats and planes. -Alan Rickman

For years everyone looked toward the demise of radio when television came along. Before that, they thought talking movies might eliminate radio as well. But radio just keeps getting stronger. -Casey Kasem

Songs used to be short, then they became longer, and now they're getting shorter. But otherwise, music is about a beat and a message. If the beat gets to the audience, and the message touches them, you've got a hit. -Casey Kasem

The last two years with the Eagles were pretty intense times. There was a lot of drinking and we were all getting high a lot. My parents were relieved when I got off the Eagles treadmill. -Glenn Frey

I just wanted to play tennis. I started because I wanted to pick up another sport and then as I was slowly getting better I wanted to see how far I can go but I always wanted to be myself. I wanted to be original. I didn't want to copy anybody's style. -Jana Novotna

I was warned not to do it. Actors who play Jesus are supposed to have a hard time getting other roles to follow, but I felt this was a myth. After all, how can you be typecast as Christ? -Jeffrey Hunter

As The O.C. started up again, I started to feel myself potentially getting pulled away. -Josh Schwartz

It's really hard in this day and age, with radio and MTV being so consolidated, to get new music out there. I think we've become a really legitimate, viable avenue for getting new music out there. -Josh Schwartz

Once you get into your stride, the camera becomes like another person in the room. It's like being in a very small theatre where there is no getting away with anything because the audience is centimetres away from you. -Saffron Burrows

Video games are so popular these days, getting the opportunity to star in one is something special. More people should do it. -Carrot Top

I've had confidence in myself all along. It was just a matter of getting the pieces back in place. -Dale Earnhardt

I'd become sort of involved in things that were happening to people. No matter what color they be, whether they be Indians, or Negroes, the poor white person or anyone who was I thought more or less getting a bad shake. -Gordon Parks

Being in a band is far more than playing an instrument. It's surviving. It's getting an album together. -Josh Silver

We heard later through the grapevine that we were being compared to the Furious 5, and because of that we were getting feedback that they were saying that we werent all that, that we were copying them… blah blah blah. -Kool Moe Dee

However, don't let perfectionism become an excuse for never getting started. -Marilu Henner

I like getting up early. I get up around five. -Marilu Henner

I'm learning, but I'm getting better at it because I'm learning how to hear God in worship. -Michael W. Smith

Somehow I started introducing writing into my drawings, and after a time, the language took over and I started getting very involved with the handwriting and then the look of the handwriting. -Patti Smith

Conservative talk radio works because there are lots of conservatives who are convinced that they are not getting the whole story from the regular media. -Paul Weyrich

The President has a short time to let people know that he is serious about getting spending under control. -Paul Weyrich

Why stop now when I'm just getting the hang of it? -Robert Goulet

It's about getting a more democratic Wales for the purpose of improving our economic performance, for improving the delivery of health care, for raising educational standards. -Ron Davies

In sharp contrast to the idea that this stage of life is enviable, we hear high levels of anxiety about getting old, anxieties about health, mobility, access to facilities, simple routine care and attention. -Rowan Williams

The art of being sick is not the same as the art of getting well. -Tony Snow

I got that experience through dating dozens of men for six years after college, getting an entry level magazine job at 21, working in the fiction department at Good Housekeeping and then working as a fashion editor there as well as writing many articles for the magazine. -Judith Krantz

I want to continue doing as big a variety of things as I can do, and if that means I have the honor of getting to do more feature work, I would love that. I know that if I make any other long-term TV commitments, it's not going to be on a drama. -Adam Arkin

The place was crawling with youngsters. It was good, because the kids were good. I can't make a general assumption. Again, you're probably getting, as a general theme from me, that I don't make a lot of broad, sweeping rules about movies. -Adam Arkin

When Courtney's mother and I first separated I tried to be Disney Dad, showering her with gifts, trips and then I snapped out of it. You don't have to try to impress your kids. If they're not getting what they need from you, they will let you know. -Al Roker

We've had risk assessments performed by Harvard University, which said that even if we did have a small number of cases in this country that the likelihood of it spreading or getting into any kind of human health problem is very, very small. -Ann Veneman

I feel sorry for people who have to edit me. Which is why book writing is by far the most enjoyable. Really the only thing it's based on is whether it's good or not. No book editor, in my experience, is getting a manuscript and try to rewrite it. -Chuck Klosterman

It was doing very well; it was doing particularly well outside of England. It was a very big seller for Carlton Television. But it was getting more and more expensive to do. -Derek Jacobi

I thought it was getting better and better, because the production values were increasing each time we did it. -Derek Jacobi

The work is getting the work. -Elizabeth Pena

I love acting. When I'm acting I feel like I'm on vacation. I'm just having a wonderful time. The nightmare is just getting the work to happen. -Elizabeth Pena

It was good for us, I suppose. Those kinds of times produce qualities in us that make us better for having had them. My parents were not getting along. My mother was quite intolerant of friendships that were being developed. -Fay Wray

It was tough for him in that newsroom with Ted Baxter getting all the glory and this poor guy doing all the work. Murray worried so much he worried his hair off! -Gavin MacLeod

I just love the hours of the theatre, I love the way it operates. I always say that when you're doing a play it's like getting a shot of B12, and when you do television for a long series you need a shot of B12. -Gavin MacLeod

There has certainly been criticism of the timing involved in getting help to the victims of the storm, and much of it may indeed be warranted. However, this is not the time for pointing fingers; rather, it is the time for offering a helping hand to our neighbors in need. -Jo Bonner

Eventually you can get into the nuts and bolts of reality: nurturing, caring, and getting along. -Jody Watley

I have wanted to be a fine artist painter, and I reached the point in art schools were I'd like to understand more about images and how images communicate information to people. And I was not getting very far in that from my professors. -John Hench

We finally found out the technique of separating and getting information about where every train would be at any moment. Of course, I went over budget many times, because – as you go along – some things improved, and you get better ideas. -John Hench

You learn that you either are going to have a police state where you don't have any freedom left, or you're going to build a world that doesn't create terrorists – and that means a whole different way of 'getting along.' -John Shelby Spong

I am pleased to tell you that he is finally getting some rest and is regaining his appetite as well. -LaToya Jackson

It always surprised me that I was getting acting work. -Mary Lynn Rajskub

When you watch it, you're like, Wow. I look like that. But it doesn't feel like that at all. It was about communicating with Gale Harold and getting across what I wanted to say about the character. -Randy Harrison

Anyway, it fell through because they ran out of money. That was when I learned not to waste your time getting your hopes up or to believe something until it actually happens. We broke up for various reasons, but it was a good band. Jim and Don produced some magical music. -Jamie Muir

I've had some of the best craft services on independent movies, actually, because they get more creative, generally, with a smaller budget. The work is still the same. I didn't really notice the difference other than I was getting dressed behind a curtain, basically. -Jennifer Beals

When you're getting ready to launch into space, you're sitting on a big explosion waiting to happen. -Sally Ride

So most astronauts getting ready to lift off are excited and very anxious and worried about that explosion – because if something goes wrong in the first seconds of launch, there's not very much you can do. -Sally Ride

The best thing about being an actress is getting good concert tickets. -Sara Gilbert

You try to do your best at what you're getting paid for. -Sean Penn

And then, as the years went on, I just kept moving along, busting into doors and getting roles, until I started to actually believe that what these other people were saying was true. -Vincent D'Onofrio

As soon as I became proactive in producing my own stuff, I started getting other roles. -Ray Liotta

I was looking to become more proactive with my career because I wasn't crazy with some of the scripts I was getting – this was before Blow and Hannibal – so I decided to start my own production company. -Ray Liotta

I was always jealous of something getting more attention. -Robyn Hitchcock

For me, making the show work was getting belly laughs – like most variety artists. But the straight actor believes you fix your performance in rehearsal and that's it. -Ron Moody

What I am finding now is that my audience is getting younger as I get older, which is a very good thing as you know – you don't want them to get older as you get older. -Russell Banks

So I had the worst experience at the very beginning, and things have been getting better since. -Alex Cox

My biggest win was getting the meal money bumped from $5 to $7. -Bob Cousy

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

That fallacy flies in the face of studies that show, every day, in every way, things are getting a little worse for America's minorities relative to the progress made by those in the top percentiles of assets and income. -Harold Washington

I suppose it hacks me off sometimes when people go on about all the other stuff, because I have really worked hard at my game, and I've been incredibly dedicated in getting myself fit, and getting my game right. -Jamie Redknapp

People ask me why I keep getting injured but I have just had to accept it is one of those things that happen. -Jamie Redknapp

I'm really getting to appreciate traditional jazz now – the New Orleans stuff – a lot more than I did before. -John Goodman

On my visits back home, if they saw that I was getting a big head, they'd let me know right away. -John Ratzenberger

It's a little bit late in the day for men to object that women are getting outside their proper sphere. -Marjory Stoneman Douglas

I want you to know that, despite what you might read at times in the newspapers or see on the television news, we have actually been getting a lot of things done the last several months, the U.S.-Canada relationship. -Paul Cellucci

One thing I love to do is produce. I've produced a couple of bands. I mean, nothing ever really happened with 'em, but I enjoy getting a young band into the studio and guiding them, and making them feel at ease. -Ace Frehley

The reason why you were allowed to get away with that in the '60s and '70s is because this country's racist administrative policies were such that rich white kids were getting exemptions. I said no exemptions. -Montel Williams

I tell you, the difference for me is between being victimized, terrorized, numbed by reading about different disasters, or reducing the anxiety by getting up and doing something about it, at whatever level. -Ted Danson

Keep writing. Try to do a little bit every day, even if the result looks like crap. Getting from page four to page five is more important than spending three weeks getting page four perfect. -Alan Dean Foster

I really fall in love with my characters, even the bad ones. I love getting together with them. They tell me what to do; they take me on a wild and wonderful trip. -Jackie Collins

I write about the American dream: if you set your mind to do something, you can do it. My fans know they're getting the real thing. -Jackie Collins

When you're dealing with music without words, titles are more a means of identification than anything else. What's the point of getting lofty? -Branford Marsalis

If I were actually Homer Simpson, I'd be getting scripts out the wazoo. -Dan Castellaneta

I even believe if you're killing a team, you shouldn't stop. You should respect your opponents enough to play 100 percent the whole time. And by the same token, if you're getting killed by the other team, you should never quit. -Sue Wicks

I've thought about doing it as soon as it is possible with this new CD getting some wings and getting out there. I don't know how soon that will be. -Al Jarreau

I realized that I would have some very tough sledding, and I was very discouraged because I didn't see much hope of getting into the field I wanted to get into with no college education. -Clyde Tombaugh

Once we were in the studio, we realized we were getting certain effects through the shooting of the dramatic scenes on video, shooting off a screen and then getting wave patterns and stuff like that. -Atom Egoyan

I made that decision back in 1985. I was out here getting certified in SCUBA with Garcia in Kona and I thought to myself, this is a place to wake up in in the morning. -Bill Kreutzmann

My youngest daughter sings. She's going to be very good. She's graduated from Music School and she's been working down around and getting her feet wet, you know. I had her out with me for a year just showing her the ropes a little bit, but she's going to be all right. -Billy Eckstine

My idea of an amusement park story is getting adventurers to go tour environmental disaster areas. After all, if the entire Great Barrier Reef gets killed, which seems like an extremely lively possibility, what are you going to do with all that rotting limestone? -Bruce Sterling

It is as pleasant as it is unusual to see thoroughly good people getting their deserts. -Charles Williams

I suddenly realized that the fellow who didn't show up was getting about fifty-times more money than I was getting. So I thought, 'this is silly,' and became an actor. I certainly never thought I'd wind up in motion pictures. That was far beyond anything I'd ever dreamed of. -Glenn Ford

Why? Because we're very well down this process as it is – flawed as it is – and we're counting on getting more power plants on line by the end of 2003 so we have a surplus of power. -Gray Davis

Sometimes I get worried I'm getting too caught up in the nauseatingly oily smoothness of my own line, when all I'm trying to do is make it as clear as possible. -Chris Ware

I think getting the rest of the guys in the band to write is important. -Donnie Iris

It did not prepare me for writing or 'Power of Attorney.' However, what it did is that it forced me out of the DA's office. I stopped getting that county check. -Christopher Darden

It's hard to notice things without people noticing me and that takes some getting used to. -Edie Falco

I've always liked getting away with just a little bit of what you're not supposed to. Like my first book, Billy's Booger, got me in trouble with the principal's office. -William Joyce

At the point where I'm trying to force something and it's not happening, and I'm getting frustrated with, say, writing a poem, I can go and pick up the brushes and start painting. At the point where the painting seems to not be going anywhere, I go and pick up the guitar. -Joni Mitchell

Nobody understood The Reoccurring Dream, but after September 11, when we were coerced to do a national duty and go out and shop, surely people could begin to see what I was getting at. -Joni Mitchell

There was this mountain village in Russia where my music was getting in on some German radio station. I remember this because music used to get up to Saskatchewan from Texas. Late at night after the local station closed down. -Joni Mitchell

I just feel that getting out there physically and protecting New York, putting my arms around everyone and protecting them… to see this happen to our city and our community. -Sigourney Weaver

What I loved about playing the corpse is that obviously somebody else got to do the physical part. It appeals to the part of me that likes playing character parts and getting the chance to get away from my own physicality. -Helena Bonham Carter

I'm only interested in being a good actor and in being remembered for my best films, not for the way I look. But it seems inevitable in this line of work that I have to care about the way I look without getting obsessed about it. -Kevin Costner

I'm getting those familiar feelings, and I'm just going to enjoy the process of getting to know someone again. -Kevin Costner

I have a chef who makes sure that I'm getting the right amounts of carbs, proteins and fats throughout the day to keep me at my max performance level. -Barry Bonds

You know, I think when people fly the nest a little too soon, as far as getting involved in movies, anything beyond the music can make it suffer, I just want to make sure that I'm not that guy. -Bubba Sparxxx

I am a relatively new Member to this Chamber, and it is troublesome to me and I can tell Members it is getting very troublesome to my constituents when they hear this repeated consistent drum beat of a corruption of the democratic process. -Jay Inslee

I still say one of the greatest moments in my whole NBA career was getting drafted. -Kevin Johnson

Let me announce this to the American people tonight one of the best things about this debate, as a Democrat from Massachusetts, I have proposed eliminating, getting rid of the alternative minimum tax. -Richard Neal

In the Belgian air force a general supposedly saw a UFO, tracked it with his plane, photographed it with his wing cameras. And I believe it because I said to myself why would this person, not getting paid for this, do it unless it actually happened or he thought it happened. -Robert Stack

I would have gone right ahead but the only thing, the only phenomenon that's going on now of course, which is different in my experiences, is that you are getting things planted in the Net by people about the Woman in White on the Net. That's not a nice change. -Andrew Lloyd Webber

Because I was small, I was getting the hell kicked out of me playing football. -Burt Bacharach

It's not getting any better, is it? I don't want my 19-year-old boy going into the army. I love these little kids. They understand how passionate I am. -Burt Bacharach

I think that shows a level of maturity and understanding that I think bodes well for getting to the bottom of this. But it is really up to you and your staff, on behalf of the American people, to take on that challenge. -David Kay

I hate getting bored. -Edward Hall

But by the time you get there and you get home, it winds up being a lot of time out. So I'm getting the itch to build, I know that. I keep looking at my stacks of wood and what I can do with it. -Guy Clark

I think I got spoiled and that writing a short story and getting it published, or writing a novel and getting it published, you pretty much get to do the first, second and third draft yourself without a whole lot of interference. -John Sayles

What you're getting excited about is not A face, but a feminine face. -Andrew Cohen

We need more foreign reach; no question about that. And we're working on getting that. We need more people abroad; we need some more bureaus. That is really an important job. -Brit Hume

When you're five years old, and you're running a business that people did not think there was room for, getting attention is not a bad thing. Letting it be known by whatever colorful language is necessary is not a bad thing. -Brit Hume

I'm never getting too lonely because it's the kind of disease where you might sit in front of the TV with three bags of biscuits, rather than communicate with the world. -Geri Halliwell

I appreciate subtlety. I have never enjoyed a kiss in front of the camera. There's nothing to it except not getting your lipstick smeared. -Hedy Lamarr

We've had such thorough training, we've had an excellent team on the ground. With the minor glitches that have occurred, we've been able to take care of them. And the teams on the ground are getting tons of incredible data. -Laurel Clark

When you talk to crews that went to Mir or have gone up to International Space Station, they say that you go through different phases of adaptation or getting used to the space environment. -Laurel Clark

Most people are interested in seeing 27-year-old women who are in movies somehow connected to sex. It's interesting to everyone. Especially little movies that are having trouble getting made, there's always sex. -Maggie Gyllenhaal

OK, he and Katie fell in love, they're getting married. Why is this in the news? Why is this a big deal? Is there something unusual about meeting someone and falling in love? -Mimi Rogers

My concentration was really on getting to university and becoming a doctor. My parents let me know that school marks were important. Achievement was something which came by hard work. -Roger Bannister

That's all I cared about too, was getting it right. -R. Lee Ermey

There was a huge, tremendous amount of disabled veterans and the Veteran's Administration just wasn't geared up for it. I know for a fact that it's getting better and better. -R. Lee Ermey

The reason the government sells the census as your ticket to getting goodies – rather than as your civic duty – is that distributing goodies is now all the government does. -Tom G. Palmer

I'm getting a little bored by the juxtaposition of American and other cinema. I no longer think this division is as true as it might have been in the 1980s, or the early part of the 90s. -Wim Wenders

So I am getting a little bored with defining one type of film as American and the other European or from somewhere else because the division is no longer true. -Wim Wenders

I hope before I am getting too old and when my mind is still functioning, I can tell some better stories. -Zhang Yimou

You have to be able to be a good loser. You have to be okay knowing you're going to fail every day in something without getting mad and upset. -Dan O'Brien

The Democratic Party is getting very angry, and that came through clearly in this election. -Ed Gillespie

For a long time I wanted to be a comic strip artist but when I started doing them in my teens they were getting really elaborate with tons of poses and a lot of information. -Craig McCracken

I think the key to being a journalist is getting your subject to feel comfortable enough to talk about stuff they want to talk about and the stuff they like and don't like, and still feel comfortable about it. -Glenn Danzig

What I'm getting at is, you know, if we really want to get serious about helping all the people living in the street and getting people jobs, we could just hire half the people in the country to spy on the other half. -Jello Biafra

It's not that Shakespeare is frivolous, but you spend your time just getting people to dress up in other people's costumes and pretending to be people that they're not, and you think, after the years go by, well, what on earth was all that about? -Jonathan Miller

Sometimes just getting out of the house and doing something you haven't done in a long time (or never done!) can open up the doors to musical inspiration. -Ken Hill

Geisha because when I was living in Japan, I met a fellow whose mother was a geisha, and I thought that was kind of fascinating and ended up reading about the subject just about the same time I was getting interested in writing fiction. -Arthur Golden

My mother stopped working when she had my brother. She was a full time mom until I started getting heavily into ice skating lessons, and it got to the point where they really needed my mom to earn an income. -Dorothy Hamill

Again, with two small children it's incredibly hard to commit yourself to anything because you're just getting interested in it and someone comes along and goes I want Thomas The Tank Engine on, and screams the place down until you put it on. -Jo Brand

And I remember leaving my place in L.A. and – my father is a big fight fan – and I said, 'Dad, I got a couple of days off and I'm getting ready to go to Houston to sign to fight Muhammad Ali. -Wilt Chamberlain

As somebody who's been writing about this subject for getting on twenty years now, it's astonishing how the climate has changed in the last five years. -Anthony Holden

It doesn't serve an American interest. It really doesn't really serve Israeli interests – it serves the interests of the political party that's getting the votes of the settlers on the West Bank. -Chris Matthews

When you've been driving in the top category for 10 years, you're obviously not a kid any more. You know, I'm married now and I've got two kids. That let's you know you're getting older. -Larry Dixon

After I left Texas and went to California, I had a hard time getting anyone to play anything that I was writing, so I had to end up playing them myself. And that's how I ended up just being a saxophone player. -Ornette Coleman

If you decide you want to be treated good, and you treat someone else good, or you want to learn something, it's information. It's getting the right, good information. -Ornette Coleman

And that does concern me, because we're not getting enough back for our taxes that we're paying. I think we really have to look at the whole sort of area. -Rex Hunt

I wouldn't mind getting emotionally involved with a woman. -Frank Bruno

I guess I'm happy that I'm getting the attention. Otherwise, I'd just be playing in a local bar in front of my family members, and I'm sure they'd get sick of that in no time. -Gavin DeGraw

I would like to end world hunger and create world peace, stop corruption, stop drugs getting to kids. -Kelly Preston

Jesus got me through the slums without getting murdered. I just walked with him as though he were really there and not a spirit just floating around. -Larry Norman

It seems that if one is working from the point of view of getting beauty in one's equations, and if one has really a sound insight, one is on a sure line of progress. -Paul Dirac

So without getting into the specifics, I can tell you that to the extent that investigation is a relatively important investigation and meaningful, the president would have been periodically briefed. -Robert Mueller

I was in my office when – on 9/11. I think I had a number of meetings scheduled. I was just getting to know the bureau. And somebody walked in and said the first plane had – or a plane had struck the World Trade Center, one of the towers. -Robert Mueller

I just love getting dirty. -Robin Wright

When I was a junior, boys were allowed to come visit me at the house. We could sit on the porch until about 8 o'clock at night; that's when it started getting dark. That was it. -Daisy Fuentes

Look, it's to the point where kids are getting Botox. It's insane. We're not allowed to age. -Rosanna Arquette

Touring and promoting and recording take a lot of time, it's just getting the right balance that's important. -Jamelia

I'm not used to getting good reviews. -Pauly Shore

Few if any teenagers can relate to getting up for school and finding famous comics like Pryor and Williams hanging out in your living room after a hard night of partying. But that's Hollywood. -Pauly Shore

I think the long-term effect of video on cinema is good in that what we are now getting up there on the screen is of superior quality. Videos are just so much more sensitive to the world. -Ann Macbeth

This is the thing you dream about when you're a kid, even before getting into the league. -Allen Iverson

The minute anyone's getting anxious I say, You must eat and you must sleep. They're the two vital elements for a healthy life. -Francesca Annis

I have enormous respect for Tom Daschle. The NRA has not yet taken a formal position on which I'm aware of on this matter, and I think Tom may be just getting a little ahead of things. -John Dingell

You never really know until you put the movie in front of an audience. I am a big advocate of screenings, which are getting harder and harder to do nowadays. -Keenen Ivory Wayans

Teens aren't just interested in getting laid. I won't believe that's all they're interested in. I have four younger sisters and they're sick of being shown how they're supposed to react in bed. -Linda Fiorentino

There was a tremendous amount of disappointment in missing the World Cup finals in 1998, so they're getting excited about this one and I really think we could do well in the Far East. -Robbie Keane

I mean there are tons of reasons. Well first of all. I write my own record. I don't take other people's materials. And I have a job which is being Willa Ford on top of getting back in the studio and writing and recording. -Willa Ford

And when we used to play and fight in the streets in Brooklyn and I would get hurt or something, my mother would always come out and save me. So that sort of postponed the inevitable about getting a good beating, without having somebody to come and save you. -Sanford I. Weill

I feel fortunate about being able to make the music I want to make and getting away with it. -Duncan Sheik

Now, I'm getting a little older, got more responsibility, I don't need to be depressed. -Noah Hathaway

The only animals I'm not comfortable with are parrots, but I'm learning as I go. I'm getting better and better at 'em. I really am. -Steve Irwin

Acid wasn't getting a whole lot of bad press at the time, and as I saw the whole bad-press thing happen, I became aware that the government had done a whole lie on all the other benign drugs as well. It became clear to me that the government wanted no real drug education. -Tommy Rettig

All of the information that we were getting up to that time from the NRC people, from our people who knew something about nuclear power, was that the breach of the core was not a likelihood to happen. -William Scranton

But you know, as you say, the original versions of my films are getting out there, slowly. -Dario Argento

Without getting real personal, we liked our bass player Ed. He was a great guy and he was a good bass player but his playing was suited for a different style of band. -Lou Gramm

It's getting the right person that's the challenge. -Bob Schieffer

At the White House, everybody works for the same person. They're all part of the same company. But on Capitol Hill, they're all independent contractors. They all work for themselves. That's a formula for getting news. -Bob Schieffer

To me, that means getting back to the point where our Constitution means that you don't tap people's phones and poke into their e-mail and you don't arrest people and keep them hidden for a year and a half without charging them. -Carol Moseley Braun

The reason that minorities and women don't have a better shot at getting elected to the Senate or to statewide office is because the campaign finance rules are so skewed as to make it very difficult for non-traditional candidates to raise the money necessary to get elected. -Carol Moseley Braun

I think people were just starving for good material because they just weren't getting it on the radio. -John Oates

I have to say that it was a very strange experience when, later in life, I represented Byron Scott and was negotiating with West – whose picture I used to have over my bed! That took some getting used to. -Leigh Steinberg

Now we're getting a whole generation of kids who have never had a football team in L.A., so they don't miss it and don't ask for it. It becomes self-perpetuating. They don't know what they're missing. -Leigh Steinberg

Photography started as a means of getting reference material for my paintings of nature subjects. -Nigel Dennis

That's basically what I'm doing when I'm tapping them – getting my toes to the end of my shoes. -Nomar Garciaparra

Most of my friends from college became dental hygienists or went into retail, a lot went into sales. They all started getting married and having kids and buying homes and I was still living like a college student. -Patricia Heaton

I was bookish and dorky in high school, so the best part of this movie was getting to be on the other side. -Piper Perabo

So the competition isn't once you got the license, running the station; it's getting the license. -Robert McChesney

The whole process of getting licenses to broadcast, which took place decades ago, was done behind closed doors by powerful lobbies, and wealthy commercial interests got all the licenses with no public input, no congressional input for that matter. -Robert McChesney

You know, grieve your wife, this is an impulsive thing and you have no idea the kind of trouble you're getting yourself into it. And of course he doesn't listen to me and he adopts this child. -Oliver Platt

I feel very bad about getting things wrong. -Martin Cruz Smith

I think that if politics is just about getting your backside on important seats, then it's a pretty worthless endeavor. -Chris Patten

Doing Tim's film is always going to be the most pleasure. Let me just put it that way. So, without drawing favorites one way or the other, getting back with him and doing Mars Attacks! was certainly a special treat. -Danny Elfman

I've been getting pretty focused about that recently, and even considered doing a masters degree to polish up the craft. I've been pretty lucky in that I seem to have found people online who are willing to constructively tear it apart for me, and indicate its weaknesses. -David Knopfler

The big biography of Lincoln necessarily had to do so much with his political career, his ambitions, his accomplishments in public, with less time to spend on his private life, his inner life, and I thought this might be a way of getting at that. -David Herbert Donald

I notice when I'm on these trips, I read like mad. It's the only thing that seems to center me, bring me back to remembering who I am. Or forgetting who I am! -Judith Guest

In short, it is not that evolutionary naturalists have been less brazen than the scientific creationists in holding science hostage, but rather that they have been infinitely more effective in getting away with it. -Phillip E. Johnson

Our reward for Starsky and Hutch was getting to write The Six Million Dollar Man for Todd. -Thomas Lennon

To see my wife getting inspired from my notes and thoughts, going in the direction I wanted, and have her surprise me with wonderful choices was a real treat. -Lasse Hallstrom

I spent six years in Bible study because I needed to get grounded. People really need to spend time in the Bible getting to know the God they claim to love. -Willie Aames

I tell writers to keep reading, reading, reading. Read widely and deeply. And I tell them not to give up even after getting rejection letters. And only write what you love. -Anita Diament

I went to see Harvey again in Fiddler. Harvey's throat is getting better. -Rip Taylor

I savour the adulation and love I have been getting from my fans and the blessings of elders in my family. Fourteen years have given me a lot and I can't thank God and the industry enough. -Akshay Kumar

I'm surprised that I actually pulled off the recording, getting all those people at the same time. -Link Wray

Anyway, I collapsed in France in the middle of a tour. I hadn't been eating properly, I was getting very phobic about audiences, and I collapsed in pure fright. -Andy Partridge

Terry said he had this new kid and his wife didn't want to live in England. He wanted to tour. He hated being in the studio. Terry liked seeing various bars the world over and getting smashed out of his brain. He was a sort of latent Keith Moon. -Andy Partridge

Where I've arrived now is the product of mixing the very straight with the very exploratory; there's a fine line between the two, although it tends to be getting straighter and straighter because my songwriting is getting better. -Andy Partridge

I don't like touring and it seemed to be getting on top of me in a big way. -Andy Partridge

I like getting married, but I don't like being married. -Don Adams

Even the draft dodgers are not pursued and hounded. They are here on our streets, most of them… unless they are breaking Canadian laws .. are getting American dollars from Ma and Pa at home to spend here. -Gordon Sinclair

Marvel has put out good product. DC has put out good product. Even Image has put out good product, as far as I'm concerned… although it's few and far between. But it's not getting recognized, no matter who's doing it. -Rob Walton

Everything is getting bigger. The way to go now is to program in a little more sophistication. -Bill Budge

The Apple has the fewest bells and whistles. It has simple sound and few graphics special effects. In a way, that is a weakness because markets for the other machines are getting bigger. -Bill Budge

I used to flirt with girls just to get the guys circling around us. I'm getting out of it now. I have to look after my reputation. -Katie Price

I would think: Stay close to the implants! They must know something because they keep getting asked backstage! -Moon Unit Zappa

What I learned with Cecil Taylor was strategy and survival and how to resist temptations and resist getting discouraged. -Steve Lacy

I slowly started to drift back into music again. I finally got the call from John… about getting the band back together again. It was so out of the blue. I almost thought that the moment had passed. -Roger Andrew Taylor

I tell students they will know they are getting somewhere when a scene is so painful they can just barely bring themselves to write about it. A writer has to draw blood. -Robert Morgan

Suddenly we saw that you could do plays about real life, and people had been doing them for some time, but they weren't always getting to the audiences. They were performed in little, tiny, theatres. -Timothy West

There has been growing quite a strain of irritating feeling between our government and the Russians and it seems to me that it is a time for me to use all the restraint I can on these other people who have been apparently getting a little more irritated. -Henry L. Stimson

As to the war with Japan, the President had already received my memorandum in general as to the possibility of getting a substantial unconditional surrender from Japan which I had written before leaving Washington and which he had approved. -Henry L. Stimson

It seems as if everybody in the country was getting impatient to get his or her particular soldier out of the Army and to upset the carefully arranged system of points for retirement which we had arranged with the approval of the Army itself. -Henry L. Stimson

And my parents' separation was tricky. But my mum had always been really honest with me, and treated me like an adult even when I was really young, so I knew they hadn't been getting on. -Lisa Snowdon

Corn is an efficient way to get energy calories off the land and soybeans are an efficient way of getting protein off the land, so we've designed a food system that produces a lot of cheap corn and soybeans resulting in a lot of cheap fast food. -Michael Pollan

ACT and SAT each have their own parts of the country. The GRE has its lock on graduate admissions. And so, one could blame the companies, but really, economically, they have no incentive to change things very much because they're getting the business. -Robert Sternberg

When I was up there at the plate, my purpose was to get on base anyway I could, whether by hitting or by getting hit. -Shoeless Joe Jackson

So if I get these actors for 30% of their price by coming in so late with an offer when they know they are not getting another offer then I do it this way. -Uwe Boll

You know what you are getting into, but being out in that heat for two weeks definitely drains your energy. -Cobi Jones

It's like the code of living by yourself. People who are single know what I'm talking about. You eat standing up, reading the paper. Or you say to yourself, this isn't even cutting it, I'm taking a TV dinner and I'm getting in bed here. -Mary Chapin Carpenter

I don't see myself getting married again, but if I do, it will be forever. -Richard Pryor

Many a person who started out to conquer the world in shining army has ended up just getting along. The horse got tired, the army rusty. The goal was removed and unsure. -Robert A. Cook

For me it's always contingent on getting a sound-the sound always suggests what kind of melody it should be. So it's always sound first and then the line afterwards. -Brian Eno

In the 1960s, people were trying to get away from the pop song format. Tracks were getting longer, or much, much shorter. -Brian Eno

I despise the Lottery. There's less chance of you becoming a millionaire than there is of getting hit on the head by a passing asteroid. -Brian May

At 20, 25, 30, we begin to realise that the possibilities of escape are getting fewer. We have jobs, children, partners, debts. This is the part of us to which literary fiction speaks. -Mark Haddon

They had some really cool rigged cars and things that were different that they would tow behind the camera car that were actually on these trailers that manipulated side to side and stuff like they were getting hit, and actually put the actor right in the middle of the chase. -David R. Ellis

Yeah, getting the company that would help advertise and cross promote the movie on the release was an important factor for New Line, so we went out to a lot of different companies. -David R. Ellis

The cast clubs were a big part of it, too. I found I wasn't getting that instant feedback I was used to with a forged blade. The sweet spot is a shade bigger, and when I didn't hit the ball dead center, I didn't know it, because it still felt great. -Payne Stewart

We shall stick it out to the end, but we are getting weaker of course and the end cannot be far. It seems a pity, but I do not think I can write more. For God's sake, look after our people. -Robert Falcon Scott

I started getting jobs, and I thought it was going to be real easy. -Ron Silver

I may be getting old, but not foolish. -Elia Kazan

I don't like to think that maybe I'm just getting old. I'm not too excited about watching a huge explosion. I'm more interested in people and characters. -Norman Jewison

Just like I'm still angry with Simpson for getting by with two murders. -Vincent Bugliosi

Because in the school of the Spirit man learns wisdom through humility, knowledge by forgetting, how to speak by silence, how to live by dying. -Johannes Tauler

I'm supposed to be the director of a television company, but I've only ever seen that company as a vehicle for making the kind of programmes we wanted to make, getting our ideas on the screen. -Rory Bremner

I think in terms of the work we're doing now a lot of the UI cleanup… I see it getting much prettier. -Shawn Fanning
