Those involved in the program are interested in how to use photography, videos, the Internet, film, and anything related to communications and transmission of information in the most up-to-date modern ways. -Major Owens

We hope that there will be better policy-making and hope to see projects implemented. We have lots of information that can be used for the implementation of projects. -Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka

Until we have a better relationship between private performance and the public truth, as was demonstrated with Watergate, we as the public are absolutely right to remain suspicious, contemptuous even, of the secrecy and the misinformation which is the digest of our news. -John le Carre

This was a report from a single source. It was an established and reliable line of reporting. It was quoted from a senior Iraqi military officer in a position to know this information. -John Scarlett

Inside a religious body you get sects and hierarchies, inside an information network you get bazaars and cathedrals, it is the same, call them what you like. They survive by pointing the finger of blame at each other. -Mary Douglas

We never, ever in the history of mankind have had access to so much information so quickly and so easily. -Vint Cerf

There is an abundance of misinformation, exaggeration, and blatant lies being spread by interest groups regarding the prospects for embryonic stem cell research. -Virginia Foxx

I have a tendency to be lucky and make the right choices based on limited information. -Paul D. Boyer

I don't think the show would be funny to you if you didn't already have a base of information. -Samantha Bee

Of course, one way of thinking about all of life and civilization is as being about how the world registers and processes information. Certainly that's what sex is about; that's what history is about. -Seth Lloyd

What's happened with society is that we have created these devices, computers, which already can register and process huge amounts of information, which is a significant fraction of the amount of information that human beings themselves, as a species, can process. -Seth Lloyd

The amount of information that can be stored by the ultimate laptop, 10 to the 31st bits, is much higher than the 10 to the 10th bits stored on current laptops. -Seth Lloyd

There are considerable advantages to using many degrees of freedom to store information, stability and controllability being perhaps the most important. -Seth Lloyd

Instead of having to be a member of the Royal Society to do science, the way you had to be in England in the 17th, 18th, centuries today pretty much anybody who wants to do it can, and the information that they need to do it is there. -Seth Lloyd

In order to figure out how to make atoms compute, you have to learn how to speak their language and to understand how they process information under normal circumstances. -Seth Lloyd

Every physical system registers information, and just by evolving in time, by doing its thing, it changes that information, transforms that information, or, if you like, processes that information. -Seth Lloyd

Merely by existing and evolving in time – by existing – any physical system registers information, and by evolving in time it transforms or processes that information. -Seth Lloyd

All physical systems can be thought of as registering and processing information, and how one wishes to define computation will determine your view of what computation consists of. -Seth Lloyd

I think moms need to share information on a regular, intimate basis. -Susie Bright

The U.S. government knew that China wanted to acquire sensitive U.S. technology, and instead of implementing a policy to prevent them from acquiring the information, the government all but gave them an invitation to take our equipment and designs. -Charles Bass

Like any good spy novel, the Cox Report alleges that Chinese spies penetrated four U.S. weapons research labs and stole important information on seven nuclear warhead designs. -Charles Bass

In its report, the Cox Committee concludes that China is using stolen U.S. design information to speed up its deployment of a new nuclear missile force. -Charles Bass

Advertising is the art of the tiny. You have to tell a complete a story and deliver a complete message in a very encapsulated form. It disciplines you to cut away extraneous information. -Dick Wolf

They made a shrewd guess that I could give them some useful information, and they were the first to meet me. Some one said they came to arrest me, and – well, let it go at that. -Joshua Slocum

My research, even before 1972, moved in directions beyond those cited for the Nobel Memorial Prize. Most of it, in one way or another, deals with information as an economic variable, both as to its production and as to its use. -Kenneth Arrow

In 1963 and later papers, I pointed out that the special market characteristics of medical care and medical insurance could be explained by reference to differences in information among the parties involved. -Kenneth Arrow

The bile makes it better. I am an information wasting machine – 100s of words a day. -Marc Maron

Working in the digital domain, you're using approximations of things; the actual sound wave never enters the equation. You deal with sections of it, and you're able to do so much more by just reducing the information to a finite amount. -Sean Booth

I don't know whether I'm, like, jumping the gun but it's possible that in the future we may be able to use the information that we can't receive at the moment. -Sean Booth

Our live set's become increasingly complex recently; we've been doing stuff that's been vastly too much information for most people to deal with and I think it's quite interesting watching how people behave in those situations, under those circumstances. -Sean Booth

But the Congress has made the determination that certain kinds of information can be protected even though the American people may want to have access to information. -Alberto Gonzales

There are, for example, exemptions in FOIA in which the government can withhold certain kinds of information, and the courts have recognized that there is certain documentation that do deserve protection, that certain privileges do apply and do deserve protection. -Alberto Gonzales

I feel very confident that that information should be sufficient for the members of the Senate to make an informed decision about John Roberts' qualifications. -Alberto Gonzales

So I think it's important to communicate with the people in terms of what the real facts are on these proposals and try to have a discussion and a dialogue that gives people information. I think they're hungry for that rather than just political rhetoric. -John Podesta

The speed of communication, the speed of information transfer, the cheapness of communication, the ease of moving things around the world are a difference in kind as well as degree. -Paul A. Volcker

If we ever start communicating with living creatures from other planets, the number one priority is, how are you going to communicate information? Even between different cultures here on Earth, you get into communication problems. -Story Musgrave

Now Congress learns that the Veterans Administration failed to provide complete, accurate information on the money it needs for both this year and next year. -Doc Hastings

Al Qaeda operates by launching surprise attacks on civilian targets with the goal of massive casualties. Our only means for preventing future attacks, which could use WMDs, is by acquiring information that allows for pre-emptive action. -John Yoo

In any event, the proper question isn't what a journalist thinks is relevant but what his or her audience thinks is relevant. Denying people information they would find useful because you think they shouldn't find it useful is censorship, not journalism. -Michael Kinsley

If the Court were to extend its reach to the base, judges could begin managing conditions of confinement, interrogation methods, and the use of information. -John Yoo

I got as much information as I could, so I wouldn't look stupid, but this is a post 9/11 world and there's only so much you can do with the FBI in terms of research. -Aaron Eckhart

My biggest problem is retaining the exact information. -David Cross

The original PATRIOT Act greatly increased our nation's ability to share intelligence information, made better use of technology, and provided terrorism investigators tools that have long been available in cases involving illegal drugs and organized crime. -Mike Simpson

Believing that our greatest need is for the general public to be able to get better information, to have an opportunity to learn better the real issues of the less fortunate, we centered the activities of the Fairness Project on that. -Mike Lowry

And given that there's been probably a ten-fold amount of information about terrorism through the media than there has about climate change; I think that's quite an interesting statistic. -Peter Garrett

We can collaborate with a Netscape employee or partner who's halfway around the world. We can distribute information and software to customers and shareholders, and get their feedback. -Jim Barksdale

I would like the Medical Society to be one of the resources for information about the influences that have an impact on our patients and our practices. -Samuel Wilson

One of the biggest challenges to medicine is the incorporation of information technology in our practices. -Samuel Wilson

Most of us feel overburdened by information, although I would say the overloaded feeling comes more from coordinating all of the information and responding to it. -David Rose

Our system allows you to respond to the information that is important to you. It allows you to sense and be attuned to more streams of information in parallel. -David Rose

I do send out information about my books. Very few people buy the books that way, but I always feel that if they want to know more about the process, they can get the information from my books. -Richard Curtis

News is important information that may influence your investments. Noise is talk or buzz or some headline that prevents you from seeing a story clearly. News is useful. Noise is a distraction. Calling what's noise and news after the fact is easy. -Maria Bartiromo

The amount of data and analysis available for free is a true example of information explosion has leveled the playing field for individual investors. -Maria Bartiromo

I am determined to hold on as long as possible, but if I should disappear, I should not have had the time to familiarize my successors with the necessary information. -Jean Moulin

I'm a girl who loves to share information, especially empowering, life-changing, information. -Marilu Henner

The Internet is a great information tool, and can be a place where kids learn, but we must remember that when kids are online, they are in public. -Mark Kennedy

I've been talking about the centrality of libraries in our information society for a while now. -Matthew Lesko

If the government did a good job of publicizing this information, my products wouldn't sell. -Matthew Lesko

Look, obviously that was – created quite a firestorm, but Newsweek editors have made clear that this was a situation where, you know, a solid, well-placed source provided some information. -Michael Isikoff

Mr. Luskin also says that Rove did not knowingly disclose classified information and did not tell any reporters that Valerie Plame worked for the C.I.A. -Michael Isikoff

So along with several very popular Internet sites, talk radio has served as alternative media that gives listeners information that they otherwise would not hear. -Paul Weyrich

About five, six FBI agents walked into the courthouse and arrested me. They said I was being arrested for distribution of information related to explosives over the Internet. -Sherman Austin

It was called the Reclaim Guide. It was just a general protest guide that went over security culture and stuff like that. A small portion of that guide dealt with explosives information. -Sherman Austin

When they were done downloading all the information off each hard drive, they took all the computers, all the literature, and loaded everything into a big white truck and left. -Sherman Austin

To me, every interview, even if you love the artist, needs to be somewhat adversarial. Which doesn't mean you need to attack the person, but you do need to look at it like you're trying to get information that has not been written about before. -Chuck Klosterman

Politically speaking, you don't necessarily give away information that allows your enemy to get an upper hand. But at the same time you don't keep reality from the population. -Dwight Schultz

We all have a right to know, and if the government has been suppressing information about other life forms, that's the cruelest hoax of all. -Dwight Schultz

It's horrible to think that a small cadre of people would manipulate that information. I mean, for God's sake, we've admitted that we were experimenting on our veterans with mustard gas. So there is no security question. It can't possibly be the reason. -Dwight Schultz

Since the tragedies, the Department of Homeland Security was established to prevent terrorist attacks within the United States, and most importantly, to share intelligence information among government agencies and departments. -Randy Forbes

As more information becomes available, and the magnitude of the storm's impact becomes even more apparent, it becomes clear that this recovery will be lengthy. -Jo Bonner

In an effort to provide my constituents with information on how they can make contributions to a number of relief and humanitarian organizations, I have posted a short list of these groups and contact numbers on my Internet website. -Jo Bonner

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

It is not to benefit CBS, not to benefit its reporters. On this one, the entire basis of it is this is a way to get more information, more important information to the public. And that's why so many states recognize this. -Floyd Abrams

History is a facsimile of events held together by finally biographical information. -Robert Smithson

It is relatively easy to design for the perfect cases, when everything goes right, or when all the information required is available in proper format. -Donald Norman

Genetics is about how information is stored and transmitted between generations. -John Maynard Smith

Our information lives will be better served when we are free to get to our information from wherever we are, with any device available. -Donald Norman

It's clear that people are going to download media files, and they're going to talk to each other, and they're going to exchange information and knowledge and so forth. So this system logic is basically what you bounce off of. -Michael Nesmith

We talked a lot about The Best Intentions and how we could shoot certain scenes in different ways with slightly different bits of dialogue and information, so that later on, we could cut the piece more easily and it would still feel complete, even though it was shorter. -Bille August

You don't get to cut that chain of evidence and start over. You're always going to be pursued by your data shadow, which is forming from thousands and thousands of little leaks and tributaries of information. -Bruce Sterling

I outline fairly extensively because I'm usually dealing with real events. I don't need to give myself as much information as I used to, but I still like to have two pages of outline for every projected 100 pages of manuscript. -Chelsea Quinn Yarbro

I think the Internet's been a tremendous tool in terms of breaking down the power structure of information and entertainment, particularly at a time when so much information and entertainment were in the hands of so few people, with multinationals owning everything. -Dave Foley

Prior to the PATRIOT Act, the ability of government agencies to share information with each other was limited, which kept investigators from fully understanding what terrorists might be planning and to prevent their attacks. -Chris Chocola

There is no excuse for this administration shielding information about Iraq and the fact that we have great difficulties there from the American people. -Jay Inslee

Our intelligence community needs better coordination of operations and exchange of information, and that's why we need an overall director of national intelligence and a national counterterrorism center. -Jim Ramstad

First, the security and privacy of sensitive taxpayer information is absolutely essential. -Jim Ramstad

Technological considerations are of great importance to architecture and cities in the informational society. -Kenzo Tange

In my opinion, further consideration of those views will help us find a way out of the current impasse, and reveal to us the kinds of buildings and cities required by the informational society. -Kenzo Tange

For me archaeology is not a source of illustrations for written texts, but an independent source of historical information, with no less value and importance, sometimes more importance, that the written sources. -Michael Rostovtzeff

A person's credit report is one of the most important tools consumers can use to maintain their financial security and credit rating, but for so long many did not know how to obtain one, or what to do with the information it provided. -Ruben Hinojosa

As problems like identity theft become more prevalent, now more than ever, Americans need to take their financial health seriously – and this information is of the utmost importance. -Ruben Hinojosa

There is still a lot of misinformation being spread about higher education funding arrangements under the new Act. The students page on my website sets out the main points in the Act. -Anne Campbell

Fahrenheit 9/11 took public domain information that should have been on the news every night and put it in a film that a lot of people went to see. But still Bush has never had to answer those charges. -John Sayles

In the end, you make your reputation and you have your success based upon credibility and being able to provide people who are really hungry for information what they want. -Brit Hume

Knowledge is power. Information is power. The secreting or hoarding of knowledge or information may be an act of tyranny camouflaged as humility. -Robin Morgan

However, I survived and started to read all chemistry books that I could get a hand on, first some 19th century books from our home library that did not provide much reliable information, and then I emptied the rather extensive city library. -Richard Ernst

You know, when people want to get any information, research information, it will all exist on these Web sites. -Brian De Palma

And we've become very doubtful of our information sources, because they're all controlled by these huge multilateral corporations. -Brian De Palma

The report of this made me exceedingly angry, for I could not see why information which a middle-class woman could get from her doctor should be withheld from a poorer woman who might need it far more. -Dora Russell

These matters having been arranged, I had a temporary awning erected near the river, and was for three or four days busily employed writing an account of our journey for the Governor's information. -Charles Sturt

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

Actually the copies of characters is something I don't particularly like to talk about in articles but just for your information, most characters there's only one. -Jim Henson

Conversely, beware the man who does nothing but ask you questions about yourself and offers no information about himself. Not only is he keeping you at bay, he is probably not listening to your answers. -Merrill Markoe

The antitrust litigation currently in the federal courts in the U.S. against Monsanto will be the test case in the life sciences, just as the Microsoft case was the test case in the information sciences. -Jeremy Rifkin

Every time I finish a book, I forget everything I learned writing it – the information just disappears out of my head. -Alice Hoffman

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

I've always felt, in all my books, that there's a deep decency in the American people and a native intelligence – providing they have the facts, providing they have the information. -Studs Terkel

I am disillusioned enough to know that no man's opinion on any subject is worth a damn unless backed up with enough genuine information to make him really know what he's talking about. -H. P. Lovecraft

Well, the whole story is in the book, but the short answer is that I was the first information architect in an organization that was traditionally design-oriented, and I felt I needed a tool to help me gain the trust and support of my colleagues. -Jesse James Garrett

A journalist and an information architect face exactly the same problem – how to give shape to the pile of information in front of you in a way that will make it easy and natural for people to comprehend. I can't imagine any better preparation for the work I do now. -Jesse James Garrett

I believe strongly in writing groups such as Romance Writers Of America that offer support, information and networking. -Nora Roberts

Prior to the passage of the Patriot Act, it was very difficult – often impossible – for us to share information with the Central Intelligence Agency, with NSA, with the other intelligence agencies, and likewise, for them to share information with us. -Robert Mueller

Secondly, not only have we put additional agents on counterterrorism, but we've also built up our analytical structure so that we're better positioned to analyze the information we have. -Robert Mueller

I think around the world, our agents are the best collectors of information you'll find. -Robert Mueller

We had to address information technology in the ways we had not before and give the agents the tools that they need to do their job more efficiently and more expeditiously. -Robert Mueller

In the United States, it's the mandate of the FBI to gather information relating to terrorism, go out and collect it, to do the interviews, to do the investigative work. -Robert Mueller

I used to ask Sean questions about acting. He's a brilliant actor, but I could never digest his information. I work primarily on an intuitive level. -Robin Wright

Video just accesses international information so much more readily. -Ann Macbeth

Dustin Hoffman was the greatest. He had so much information to give and he mesmerized me. He really feels for actors who are just starting out and remembers his early days like they were yesterday. -Amy Weber

The Internet is really about highly specialized information, highly specialized targeting. -Eric Schmidt

I think that the U.S. does have this very much more open attitude, and I admire it very much and I think it's very important to the world. But the information and the discussion sometimes come too late, after the effective decision has been made. -E. P. Thompson

But the issue became, how long do you keep the press waiting so that you can gather more information? -William Scranton

And it was at that point that I realized, in fact, our whole administration realized, that we could not rely on Metropolitan Edison for the kind of information we needed to make decisions. -William Scranton

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

There's fierce competition between all the networks to get the guest who can bring the most pertinent information about whatever the story of the moment happens to be. -Bob Schieffer

For sure, the American people have access to more information now than any other people who have ever lived on earth. And I think we do a pretty good job of sorting out what's important. -Bob Schieffer

If you go back to the first single-cell form of life, it clearly possessed the capacity to receive, to utilize, to store, to transform, and to transmit information. -Dee Hock

Language was a huge expansion of that capacity to deal with information. -Dee Hock

As I like to say, the entire collective memory of the species – that means all known and recorded information – is going to be just a few keystrokes away in a matter of years. -Dee Hock

The first profile piece on myself came about after my Rabbi sent information to the Jewish Chronicle on what I was up to. The story was then picked up by one of the nationals and things grew from there. -Benjamin Cohen

I think the digital camera would record that information too fast for me. -Kim Weston

To be able to detect the outbreak of avian flu anywhere in the world is going to require a partnership of several countries that will share information and samples, but it is important to remember a threat anywhere is a threat everywhere. -Michael C. Burgess

Genes that underlie the capacity to receive, use and transmit information are the evolving properties. -Peter R. Grant

The important information you need at the beginning of an issue. Like way they did the old Frank Miller Daredevil issues in the first five pages he always had to state his origins and how he got his powers. -Robert Kirkman

You know, Simon he's an artist representative, but Randy and Paula actually were in the industry as artists so they had, you know, the information that they offered to us from their aspect. -Ruben Studdard

No two people take on the information of being admirable and being admired in the same way. -Jock Sturges

If information is true, if it can be verified, and if it's really important, the newspaper needs to be willing to take the risk associated with using unidentified sources. -Bob Woodward

I recently read some of the transcripts of Nixon's Watergate tapes, and they spent hours trying to figure out who was leaking and providing information to Carl and myself. -Bob Woodward

Deep Throat did serve the public interest by providing the guidance and information to us. -Bob Woodward

Deep Throat's information, and in my view, courage, allowed the newspaper to use what he knew and suspected. -Bob Woodward

I think that everyone is kind of confused about the information they get from the media and rightly so. I'm confused about the information I get from the media. -Bob Woodward

I think journalism gets measured by the quality of information it presents, not the drama or the pyrotechnics associated with us. -Bob Woodward

I'm not going to name some of my colleagues who are very well-known for their television presentation, but they wouldn't know new information or how to report a story if it came up and bit them. -Bob Woodward

Because of Watergate in part, I am kind of a magnet for calls and information and suggestions. -Bob Woodward

People live longer today than they ever have. They live happier lives, have more knowledge, more information. All this is the result of communications technology. How is any of that bad? -Tom Clancy

I was one of the first generations to watch television. TV exposes people to news, to information, to knowledge, to entertainment. How is it bad? -Tom Clancy

The control of information is something the elite always does, particularly in a despotic form of government. Information, knowledge, is power. If you can control information, you can control people. -Tom Clancy

America is the most inventive country in the world because everybody has access to information. -Tom Clancy

My fiction has been influenced by the visual arts, though not in obvious ways, it seems to me. I don't offer tremendous amounts of visual information in my work. -Jonathan Lethem

In the 1920s, Wall Street was a world that was really dominated by professional speculators and stock pools. These people had a monopoly over information. -Ron Chernow

The securities laws of the 1930s were so important because it forced companies to file registration statements and issue prospectuses, and it remedied the imbalance of information. -Ron Chernow

The Soviet Union did not achieve victory over the West, so was my information inadequate to help them to victory, or did it play no particular role in their failure to achieve victory? -Aldrich Ames

Perhaps my information hurt the Soviet Union more than it helped. I have no idea. It was not something I ever discussed with the KGB officers that I was dealing with. -Aldrich Ames

An espionage organization is a collector: it collects raw information. That gets processed by a machinery that is supposed to resolve its reliability, and to present a finished product. -Aldrich Ames

I said in court a long time ago that I didn't see that the Soviet Union was significantly helped by the information I gave them, nor that the United States was significantly harmed. -Aldrich Ames

During the Cold War, we gathered information by listening to the Soviets, taking pictures of the Soviets, and we allowed our human intelligence to decline. -Bob Graham

The American people have been denied important information for their own protection. -Bob Graham

The American people do not have the information upon which they can hold the administration and responsible agencies accountable. I call that a coverup. -Bob Graham

The American people should be informed about what kind of capability terrorists have inside the United States. They should be informed of why we are not using information to do a more effective job of dealing with terrorists. -Bob Graham

Now we have a whole separate supplier of data for Able Danger who's verifying that same information. -Curt Weldon

I would never jeopardize classified information to be brought out to the public. This information is all open source. There is no reason to worry about classification. It is simply an attempt by bureaucrats to cover their rear ends. -Curt Weldon

In addition to fines, violators of decency standards could be required to air public service announcements serving educational and informational needs of children. -Charles W. Pickering

In traditional schools, you're penalized for making a mistake. But that won't work in the new information culture, in the digital world we live in today. -Daniel Greenberg

Whenever culture has gone through a radical change, as ours has – from industrial age to information age – there are people who will deny that things have changed; they resist it and refuse to change. -Daniel Greenberg

Coal companies have a lot of power in the media, and unfortunately a lot of information doesn't get out. -Kevin Richardson

You come to work because the office is a resource: The office is a place where you can meet with other people, and the office has libraries of books and information on CD-ROM that might help you with your work. -Jay Chiat

Second, we're spending a huge amount of money on technology so that everyone can check out laptops and portable phones. We're spending more money to write our existing information into databases or onto CD-ROM. -Jay Chiat

And it turned out that the Roberts Commission did not fully utilize the information available and that it came to conclusions which were I think quite short sighted and, indeed, in some cases, scapegoated individuals. -Richard Ben-Veniste

With respect to the FBI, they had problems communicating in a vertical way, within the FBI itself, so that information of importance could get pushed up to those who were decision-makers. -Richard Ben-Veniste

The real question was, here we had this information, Bin Laden intends to strike in the United States. We knew they had struck before in 1993 at the World Trade Center in the first bombing of the trade center. -Richard Ben-Veniste

Instant telecommunication allows better and updated information, lessons learnt and problems encountered to be exchanged and debated, it alerts us more quickly to problems and brings to many households around the world visions and information which hopefully spur us to action. -Carol Bellamy

Right, but there's expertise and then there's inside information. And I think we have to make a distinction. -Daniel Okrent

You don't teach information in a writing workshop. -Tobias Wolff

Talk radio has made an enormous run around establishment media. But the Internet is making an end run around talk radio. Suddenly we're faced with an information age. -Pete du Pont

The sea change that has come is the information age. We don't have to just read The New York Times anymore. We can pull up something on the Internet and get any news that we like. -Pete du Pont

The United States has done more for the war crimes tribunal than any other country in the world. We're turning over all the information we have, including intelligence information. -Warren Christopher

Not as much as I used to, but I use the Internet for everything. I use it for information. Like if I'm planning a trip or something, I'll check out the place I'm going to. -Catherine Bell

Developments in medical technology have long been confined to procedural or pharmaceutical advances, while neglecting a most basic and essential component of medicine: patient information management. -John Doolittle

Because the New Testament provides the primary historical source for information on the resurrection, many critics during the 19th century attacked the reliability of these biblical documents. -Josh McDowell

I am committed to ensure that our intelligence community, law enforcement, medical professionals, and military have the information and funding needed to protect the American people from threats at home and abroad. -Leonard Boswell

Most movie-goers are overdosing on star coverage; it's the ultimate example of too much information. -Peter Bart

I do not believe in censorship, but I believe we already have censorship in what is called marketing theory, namely the only information we get in mainstream media is for profit. -Sam Sheppard

I have never refused to talk to any authorities or give them any information I had. -Sam Sheppard

They were saying computers deal with numbers. This was absolutely nonsense. Computers deal with arbitrary information of any kind. -Ted Nelson

I just read that Time magazine cover story with all this information about how you have to have your kids by the time you're 12 or it's all over. Please. -Jill Clayburgh

President Kennedy was a voracious reader and was forever coming up with fascinating bits of information. -Pierre Salinger

And then ultimately what I tell the kids is: coaches can give you information, they can give you guidelines, and they can put you in a position. But the only person who can truly make you better is you. -Brandi Chastain

Well there are two things: Number one is, make sure you always enjoy yourself, because when you enjoy yourself, you'll learn, you'll want more information, you'll push yourself. -Brandi Chastain

You have to be willing to accept the information, you have to be willing to work hard. You have to be motivated to go to practice with an open mind. You have to be willing to be criticized. Only you can do those things. -Brandi Chastain

You are going in one second the length of a football field. That means you brain is receiving information from your body what the car is doing physically, bumping, balance, performance. -Emerson Fittipaldi

The reason is that till date, in spite of advances in information technology and strategies of information, the written word in the form of books still remains one of humanity's most enduring legacies. -Ibrahim Babangida

The European model is, first, a social and economic system founded on the role of the market, for no computer in the world can process information better than the market. -Jacques Delors

Eventually, it is found out but it takes time especially in the conditions when communication is difficult, when the enemy is making it extremely awkward for information to come out, to go. -Joe Slovo

This was something that was obsessing me and creating a writer's block. To get involved and get stuck in, get the proper information about what's going on has really helped. -Thom Yorke

What I did was, I went and collected every bit of information from Adventist publishing houses in the basic areas of doctrine covered in the book Questions on Doctrine. -Walter Martin

Telegraphs are machines for conveying information over extensive lines with great rapidity. -Charles Babbage

A second type of direct evidence is formed by statements, whether as formal legends or personal information, regarding the age or relative sequence of events in tribal history made by the natives themselves. -Edward Sapir

I had therefore, no hesitation in giving all the information I had, even though occasionally I tried to concentrate mainly on giving information about the results of my own work. -Klaus Fuchs

The last time when I handed over information was in February or March 1949. -Klaus Fuchs

There is nobody I know by name who is concerned with collecting information for the Russian authorities. There are people whom I know by sight whom I trusted with my life. -Klaus Fuchs

A newspaper should be the maximum of information, and the minimum of comment. -Richard Cobden

The results of ethnic psychology constitute, at the same time, our chief source of information regarding the general psychology of the complex mental processes. -Wilhelm Wundt

It is evident that one cannot say anything demonstrable about the problem before having resolved these preliminary questions, and yet we hardly possess the necessary information to solve some of them. -Georges Cuvier

Our free enterprise system of disseminating information is collectively referred to as The Media. But there is no collective. -Jessica Savitch

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

Esso has been the main one in America spreading the disinformation that there is no global warming problem. -James Lovelock

The amount of detailed information which an individual has at his command and his theoretical elaborations of the same are mutually dependent; they grow in and through each other. -Hermann Ebbinghaus

Homer was able to give us no information relating to the truth, for he wrote of human rather than divine things. -Lactantius

The liberties and freedoms which we hold dear and we recognize and cherish and respect guide the way we gather information in the United States. -John Ashcroft

The Patriot Act allows and provides a basis for an exchange of information. -John Ashcroft

But definitely, when a decision is taken, or when you are trying to oppose a decision, you are in a weaker position than the member states, because they know more about the situation than you. We gave information, but they never gave us any information. -Boutros Boutros-Ghali

Interesting phenomena occur when two or more rhythmic patterns are combined, and these phenomena illustrate very aptly the enrichment of information that occurs when one description is combined with another. -Gregory Bateson

I've got volumes on how not to behave. I've got more information now than a guy should have at my age. -Charlie Sheen

Every story was being made up. My true friends weren't the ones speaking. It was people who never knew me, making up stories. Even my local paper put a $1,000 bounty out for information about my whereabouts. -Marla Maples

No amounts of stone and bone could yield the kinds of information that the paintings gave so freely. -Mary Leakey

And, consequently, the art of propaganda or public information becomes one of the most powerful forms of directive statesmanship. -John Grierson

I'm just a vessel of information. -Steven Cojocaru

We need to bridge the gap between the medical libraries and the hospital rooms; take the information out there already, add to it, focus it, harness it – and bring it to the patient who was just diagnosed today. -Bruce Vento

A variety of national and international studies indicate that the broad-based deployment of information technology can have a substantial impact on our nation's economic productivity and growth as well as the educational and social success of our citizens. -Tim Holden

I think that an artist is a bit like a computer. He receives information from the world around him and from his past and from his own experiences. And it all goes into the brain. -Gerald Scarfe

Since signing with Universal, I have been working closely with Gary Ross, the director, producer and screenwriter. We have spent many hours on the phone, and I've been sending him information and items that have been useful to the writing process. -Laura Hillenbrand

That is a lot of the reason I do what I do, to really spread the word and spread information and turn people onto different things they may not be, y'know, aware of. That is what Naked City is certainly about. -John Zorn

If we don't have an informed electorate we don't have a democracy. So I don't care how people get the information, as long as they get it. I'm just doing it my particular way and I feel lucky I can do it the way I want to do it. -Jim Lehrer

Best I can do for them is to give them every piece of information I can find and let them make the judgments. That's just my basic view of my function as a journalist. -Jim Lehrer

The importance of information is directly proportional to its improbability. -Jerry Pournelle

I have more information in one place than anybody in the world. -Jerry Pournelle

But my estimates, for instance, based upon book information, were simply ridiculous, fanciful images of African attractions were soon dissipated, anticipated pleasures vanished, and all crude ideas began to resolve themselves into shape. -Henry Morton Stanley

We are currently working on new policies to protect and create American jobs, particularly by improving education. We need more information in order to find the best solutions to this increasing concern for American families. -Dan Lipinski

We all want more information available when making health care decisions for ourselves and our families. -Dan Lipinski

We have to be aware that the scientific community throws up tons of different hypotheses and at a certain point we'll find out who was right and who was wrong. But we have to go with the best information right now, which I would claim to be the IPCC reports. -Bjorn Lomborg

But this is an occupational hazard of being a scientist. You say this is the best information I have and then you realize that not everyone is going to read the footnotes or the whole book, so people are going to get the wrong impression. -Bjorn Lomborg

We lament the speed of our society and the lack of depth and the nature of disposable information. -David Ogden Stiers

My house was bugged. They couldn't find any information on me being a subversive because I happen to love America; I just don't like some of the things the government is doing. -Eartha Kitt

When I do documentaries, my best information ends up on the cutting-room floor. People have trouble dealing with sexual honesty. -Betty Dodson

The government can still conduct clandestine searches of innocent people's private information such as library, medical, and financial records. This is wrong and should have been addressed in a true compromise. -Jose Serrano

The President also talked at length about how well the American economy is doing. Apparently, he got his information on this topic from his millionaire supporters. For the average working family, these are trying economic times. -Jose Serrano

There was a man who was an associate of jimmy Hoffa, who testified against Hoffa in his trial down in Tennessee. We had information from him that he and Hoffa did, in fact, discuss the planning of an assassination conspiracy against Bobby Kennedy. -Louis Stokes

Also, with information having just come out at the time about J. Edgar Hoover's electronic surveillance of Dr. King, it gave greater weight to the statements of those persons who were alleging involvement of the FBI. -Louis Stokes

Well that's true, and what is actually happening now is that there are accusations that those records contain conspiratorial information that has been concealed from the American people and that is a dangerous situation that just cannot be tolerated. -Louis Stokes

Now the interesting thing about the movie is that many of the questions it raised about the Warren Commission and its investigation were all investigated by our committee 13 years ago. We published our findings in 27 volumes of information and evidentiary material. -Louis Stokes

Children from like 8 and even up to the college age – Spider-Man appeals to a fairly broad demographic but, like I said, a mean age probably of 12 is a good mark – they process information so quickly and it's not because of attention deficit or short attention span. -Thomas Haden Church

The information that is passed from person to person and from generation to generation is the primary factor that gives humans a competitive advantage over other animals. -Keith Henson

People think of us as an information distributor because that's how they relate to the Internet. But most of the time people already have pretty well established opinions. -Joan Blades

We need to make sure that the fast-growing States and the balance of States in this country have as much information as available because I cannot imagine the pain as a parent myself of having my child molested by someone in our schools. -Jon Porter

By providing our school districts with direct access to criminal information records, we can help ensure timely and complete information on prospective school employees. -Jon Porter

I've got my whole life. There's a lifetime of experience, a lifetime of experiencing the road and the music and different players. It makes me a richer human being. I have a greater source of information to tap into, a wealth of life. -Rita Coolidge

If they conducted a raid in this room, you'd all be policed up. They'd take all of you to Abu Ghraib and turn you over to the soldiers. Maybe there's only one or two of you in this group who was a known associate or had any piece of information that they are trying to exploit. -Janis Karpinski

Military intelligence interrogators, however, their goal is to get information, to save lives, to stop the war, to find Saddam – whatever the information is going to be used for, at whatever cost. -Janis Karpinski

Democracies must have equilibrium… and the entanglement of politics and information must be minimized. -Romano Prodi

She gave me another piece of information which excited other feelings in me, scarcely less dreadful. Infants were sometimes born in the convent; but they were always baptized and immediately strangled! -Maria Monk

With over 1 billion users and counting worldwide, the Internet has quickly become a critical place for individuals, business communities and governments to share and distribute information. -Robin Hayes

As you lecture, you keep watching the faces, and information keeps coming back to you all the time. -George Wald

If you desire information on some point of law, you are not likely to ponder over the ponderous tomes of legal writers in order to obtain the knowledge you seek, by your own unaided efforts. -Felix Adler

I am very puzzled by the fact that young people are getting infected again. They don't take precautions despite an enormous amount of information. It's like riding a race car at 200 kilometers an hour. Some people like the risk. -Luc Montagnier

I think what he's – what he believes, and he may be correct, I don't know, that we have some intelligence information that leads us to know some things about what's going on in Iraq that we haven't revealed to others. -Lawrence Eagleburger

So you will see us continue to advance the state of the art or take information that we have in our response data bases and have that drive automation or an automated response by some of our products. -John W. Thompson

My understanding is that what was provided was general order of battle information, not operational intelligence. I certainly have no knowledge of US participation in preparing battle and strike packages and doubt strongly that that occurred. -Frank Carlucci

I'm not against ratings per se. I think more information is always good. But I certainly don't think the government has to step in and set guidelines for how shows should be rated. -Drew Carey

Judy, we think that since the 11th of September, 2001, we've faced a similar heightened threat level. And we've been enhancing both the exchange of intelligence and security information and the assessment of that information, because that's the crucial element. -David Blunkett

I'd like to provide information, inspiration, and access to whatever goods and services are needed to make it super easy for everyone to change their lifestyle to a sustainable one. -Daryl Hannah

Exact information about the functional significance of the deep sections of the brain is only obtained by working through the brain histologically in serial section. -Walter Rudolf Hess

Developments in information technology and globalised media mean that the most powerful military in the history of the world can lose a war, not on the battlefield of dust and blood, but on the battlefield of world opinion. -Timothy Garton Ash

When you do a cartoon based on news headlines, you do it based on incomplete information. -Ted Rall

Over the course of two years, we arrived at a point where we began to look at the value added by making information more easily accessible across the intelligence community, both defense and national. -Stephen Cambone

One is to ensure that the war fighters and the intelligence analysts get the information that they need when they need it, in a format that's useful to them. -Stephen Cambone

I frankly don't think it's going to be a successful war on terrorism until law enforcement agencies like the FBI are willing to share with other law enforcement agencies. If they can't share information, there's no way this war can be won. -Patty Hearst

If a State has reliable scientific information that demonstrates that a warning is needed for a particular food, then in the interest of public health, it should share that information with the FDA and petition for a new national standard. -Nathan Deal

The scanning of barcodes, or the reading of RFID transponders, generates data that is used in a software package to provide management or control information. -Mike Marsh

Well, I think first of all there was a failure to have real, clear information at our disposal. There was a real lack of situational awareness. We didn't have the capabilities on the ground to give us real-time, accurate assessments of the physical condition of the city. -Michael Chertoff

The IRS is currently considering a rule that would make it easier for tax preparers to disclose the private information contained in tax returns – including name, address, Social Security number, employer, income, and charitable donations. -Melissa Bean

Reports also suggest that Ernst and Young and other large tax preparation firms are sending tax returns overseas for processing. But the IRS has no control over tax information once it's been sent to India or another country. -Melissa Bean

Even the best data security systems can't protect private taxpayer information from entrepreneurial foreign businesses than can make huge profits selling U.S. taxpayer information. -Melissa Bean

Mr. Speaker, Americans want, need, and rightfully expect Congress to protect them from the prying eyes of identity thieves and give them back control of their Social Security numbers and personal health information. -Luis Gutierrez

Coming tight was boring to me, just the face… it didn't have enough information. -Annie Leibovitz

If you run an Internet search on Vietnam and the war, most of the information you get begins at about 1962. I think this is telling. It is missing the whole period that led up to the reasons the war happened in the first place. -Brendan Fraser

Despite its enormous power and wealth, China's ruling elite remains absolutely petrified that the free flow of information will undermine its political legitimacy, particularly among China's younger generation. -Tom Lantos

I also rise today in strong support of forward movement on the implementation of health information technology, which has the potential to save the United States billions of dollars in health care costs each year. -Russ Carnahan

The rapid dissemination of technology and information offers entirely new ways of production, but it can also bring the spectre of more states developing weapons of mass destruction. -Lord Robertson

Despite the administration's long public information campaign, for many months polls have consistently indicated only 37 percent of those eligible for Medicare say they only partially understand the program. -Mike Fitzpatrick

Anyone can use these sites – companies and colleges, teachers and students, young and old all make use of networking sites to connect with people electronically to share pictures, information, course work, and common interests. -Mike Fitzpatrick

Although Customs and Border Protection analyzes cargo and other information to target specific shipments for closer inspection, it still physically inspects only a small fraction of the containers under its purview. -Mike Fitzpatrick

I am pleased to see that information campaigns, such as the America's WETLAND effort, are getting the message out, and people are beginning to realize that wetlands loss in Louisiana affects us all. -John Breaux

The best doctors and the best hospitals in America, if they cannot get the patient information they need when they need it, it can lead to morbid consequences: Higher mortality. -Timothy Murphy

Providing patients and consumers with solid information on the cost and quality of their healthcare options can literally make the difference between life or death; and play a decisive role in whether a family or employer can afford healthcare. -Timothy Murphy

I am pleased that the President has signed an Executive Order this week requiring federal agencies to disclose information about prices and quality of healthcare services. -Timothy Murphy

Healthcare providers will compete to offer the best record of patient safety at the lowest prices. Hospitals and patients will benefit from having accurate information about areas of excellence and areas that must be improved. -Timothy Murphy

Since other countries and terrorist organizations are working to secure information that could threaten national security, more funding is provided in the bill to increase counter-intelligence activities. -Roger Wicker

Since 2001, the Patriot Act has provided the means to detect and disrupt terrorist threats against the U.S. Prior to enactment of the law, major legal barriers prevented intelligence, national defense, and law enforcement agencies from working together and sharing information. -Roger Wicker

Collecting intelligence information is like trying to drink water out of a fire hydrant. You know, in hindsight It's great. The problem is there's a million dots at the time. -Louis Freeh

The better the information it has, the better democracy works. Silence and secrecy are never good for it. -Kate Adie

On the Northern Ireland question, for instance, the British and Irish governments prohibit media contact with members of the IRA, but we have always gone ahead, believing in the right to information. -Kate Adie

But in the first Gulf war the United Kingdom was not under any threat from Iraq, and is still less so in the second one. Then there is no justification for obstructing freedom of information, particularly as nations have a right to know what their soldiers are being used for. -Kate Adie

With comics you can put interesting and solid information in a format that's pretty palatable. -Joe Sacco

It was to do with information management. The intention was to dramatise it. -Hans Blix

The Internet is both great and terrible. As a source of information, a tool for delivering music and art, it's great. But spamming ads and piracy of music is terrible. It's stealing. -Gary Wright

I think that the use of copyright is going to change dramatically. Part of it is economics. There is just going to be so much content out there – there's a scarcity of attention. Information consumes attention, and there's too much information. -Esther Dyson

I think that you make the best choice with the information that you have before you at that given time. -Eriq La Salle

People who want alternative information have to try so hard to find it. -Edwidge Danticat

Thanks for the information about what we call business. -Dashiell Hammett

What we do as actors is we go through phases where you superficially learn all this information. -Cillian Murphy

It's obvious that if you're going to play a character you need to amass information about that person and about their environment or their era that they're in and use as little or as much as necessary. -Cillian Murphy

I will have a one-hour program called the Mission Watch, where I will describe details of the mission and give additional information about the lessons from space. -Christa McAuliffe

If a spectator with a philosophical mind, somebody accustomed to reading books, gets the same kind of information in a movie, he might not fully understand it. -Manuel Puig

I don't like to go to the movies to see violence or some kind of spy thing with all kinds of information you have to assimilate to understand the plot. -Pia Zadora

I believe our editorial decisions reflected our constant desire to make sure that we fully cover and analyze any issue and give our viewers all the information they need. -Jim Walton

We had to depend on other institutions to do research on our behalf. We had to use the information that already existed to craft the best practices to distribute throughout the country. And we had to do all of that in ten months. -DeForest Soaries

But the system of prices ruling the market not only transmits information in the light of which economic agents can mutually adjust their actions, it also provides them with an incentive to exercise economy in terms of money. -Michael Polanyi

I have no personal vendetta against Clarence Thomas. I seek only to provide the committee with information which it may regard as relevant. -Anita Hill

In 2003, Congress authorized the construction of a visitor center for the Vietnam Memorial to help provide information and educate the public about the memorial and the Vietnam War. -Dennis Cardoza

I think young writers should get other degrees first, social sciences, arts degrees or even business degrees. What you learn is research skills, a necessity because a lot of writing is about trying to find information. -Irvine Welsh

I don't think that people in America are really given enough information about the Third World. -Martin Sheen

That appropriation of resources and the transformation of them into goods and services through the European production system characterized, and characterizes to this day, all industrial systems including the information age. -Paul Hawken

That inefficiency is masked because growth and progress are measured in money, and money does not give us information about ecological systems, it only gives information about financial systems. -Paul Hawken

When the time comes for your brain to process the information, the second word comes up faster than the first one. So when it's in your head, all of a sudden, it comes out backwards and you think of the word backwards. -Caitlyn Jenner

It's hard to pay attention these days because of multiple affects of the information technology nowadays. You tend to develop a faster, speedier mind, but I don't think it's necessarily broader or smarter. -Robert Redford

If I remember correctly, a writer is someone who wants to convey information. Language or writing is a code. -Clifford Geertz

In the New York Times, you're going to get completely different information than you would in the USA Today. -Tabitha Soren

American people are not evil. Given information, they will do the right thing. But they're not given the information. -Tim Robbins

I've never crashed a wedding. When I was a kid I, of course, used to crash parties. Crashing a wedding is difficult though because you have to have the suit, and you have to have information in case someone catches you. You have to know at least some names and something. -Christopher Walken

But these guys learn so fast now, they sort of soak up the information, they're fearless. Those are the guys who learn from their mistakes and come back strong the next time. -John McEnroe

I have lots of sources of information about what's going on at the company. I think I have a pretty good pulse on where we are and what people are thinking. -Steve Ballmer

And I think that being able to make people laugh and write a book that's funny makes the information go down a lot easier and it makes it a lot more fun to read, easier to understand, and often stronger. So there's all kinds of advantages to it. -Al Franken

It's hard for us not to be involved with things. When you have so much information and you see so much need, there's too much going on for us not to get involved. -Jeff Ament

Increasingly, the central question is becoming who will have access to the information these machines must have in storage to guarantee that the right decisions are made. -Jean-Francois Lyotard

It would be a lot different for me because there is a lot of information that you need to know about as a player. How pitchers are pitching you, how defenses are playing, certain situations about certain pitchers. -Ernie Banks

I can get a better grasp of what is going on in the world from one good Washington dinner party than from all the background information NBC piles on my desk. -Barbara Walters

Prices are important not because money is considered paramount but because prices are a fast and effective conveyor of information through a vast society in which fragmented knowledge must be coordinated. -Thomas Sowell

The demographic weight of countries such as China and India exercise a massive pressure on our wages and salaries. They have accomplished massive technological advances and the revolution in information technology has reduced the costs of transport. -Laurent Fabius

Whatever the device you use for getting your information out, it should be the same information. -Tim Berners-Lee

The Google algorithm was a significant development. I've had thank-you emails from people whose lives have been saved by information on a medical website or who have found the love of their life on a dating website. -Tim Berners-Lee

The Mobile Web Initiative is important – information must be made seamlessly available on any device. -Tim Berners-Lee

In intelligence work, there are limits to the amount of information one can share. Confidentiality is essential. -Gijs de Vries

If information ends up in the wrong hands, the lives of people very often are immediately at risk. -Gijs de Vries

If you combat an international phenomenon, it is indispensable to share information internationally. -Gijs de Vries

If you exchange information internationally, you must strengthen data protection. Those are two sides of the same coin. -Gijs de Vries

Police forces collect information to be used in a public court to get people convicted. Security services gather information that does not necessarily lead to people being prosecuted and in many cases needs to remain confidential. -Gijs de Vries

Can you blame them? We have to filter so much information these days. But it does make it difficult for an artist. I'm 46 years old now. I've had a lot of life experience and my voice has changed. People who expect the same old me are bound to be disappointed. -Kathy Mattea

The absurd consequences of neglecting structure but using the concept of order just the same are evident if one examines the present terminology of information theory. -Rudolf Arnheim

That's the new way – with computers, computers, computers. That's the way we can have the cell survive and get some new information in high resolution. We started about five years ago and, today, I think we have reached the target. -Lennart Nilsson

I have many times thought I did the wrong thing, but the reason was not to be a medical doctor – it was just to have the information. But then, maybe I was wrong, I don't know. -Lennart Nilsson

I believe certain members of the U.S. Congress have aided in the oppression and diversion of critical information that could have revealed a fullness of truth long ago. -Bo Gritz

Because these kids get away from their parents, and they binge drink until they are sick. Dozens of them are going to the hospital, and some of them dying. This is a problem, a big problem that needs to be addressed, and we need accurate information. -Zach Wamp

With such compelling information, the question is why haven't we been able to do more to prevent the crisis of underage drinking? The answer is: the alcohol industry. -Lucille Roybal-Allard

Considering the amount of information we're bombarded by, it's amazing if a song can transcend time. -Michael Bolton

When we had highly sensitive information, the DNA on the dress, that was held within our office and the FBI. There was no dissemination of that information. -Ken Starr

We must combat misinformation that is being spread. -Ken Starr

I thought we were to discuss a referral which we believe contains substantial and credible information of potential impeachable offenses by the President of the United States. -Ken Starr

I don't believe anyone has leaked grand jury information. -Ken Starr

I need to talk about Chinese culture. We have deep, strong philosophy and culture. I want to share some information, tell the worldwide audience. -Jet Li

In an era when information can be sent instantaneously anywhere, it is utterly nonsensical that our Nation's police, the fire, and EMS personnel cannot consistently communicate with each other. -Bill Pascrell

I spend my time trying to figure art out. I was brought up to believe that the way one processes information is by making it into art. That's how I live my life. -Sean Lennon

As our country increasingly relies on electronic information storage and communication, it is imperative that our Government amend our information security laws accordingly. -Jo Ann Davis

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

Trade isn't about goods. Trade is about information. Goods sit in the warehouse until information moves them. -C. J. Cherryh

What do we tell our children? Haste makes waste. Look before you leap. Stop and think. Don't judge a book by its cover. We believe that we are always better off gathering as much information as possible and spending as much time as possible in deliberation. -Malcolm Gladwell

Every president thinks that all information that comes to the White House is their private preserve after they all promise an open administration on the campaign trail, but some are more secretive than others. Some want to lock down everything. -Helen Thomas

The visual information of art history is going to students seamlessly, without the enormous trouble those of us who are older had when we studied art history many years ago. -Robert Nelson

This filing spike is a result of bad information being pushed on people, and then they file for bankruptcy out of fear. -Steve Bartlett

So many people are accustomed to written information that you really have to have a few more bells and whistles in this day and age. -Chris Bell

To tell an ally – who is shedding blood next to you – that you can't share information is a crime. -David Warner

The tax code can be used to eliminate the toll booths on the information superhighway. -Jerry Weller

The majority of information I gave police was about my wife and her family, which is what they wanted. -Robert Blake

An easily accessible and transparent database of contract information will bring sunshine into the confusing and sometimes shadowy practice of government contracting. -Tom Coburn

It's the same with people knowing absolutely everything there is to know about an actor. I actually think the more personal information you have about an actor, the more you have to carve out for yourself when you go to a movie and see them in it. -Holly Hunter

Meanwhile, my residence within the Federal lines, and my acquaintance with so many of the officers, the origin of which I have already mentioned, enabled me to gain much important information as to the position and designs of the enemy. -Belle Boyd

Over the past decade, prescribing information has grown more and more complex, more and more dense and more difficult to negotiate. -Andrew von Eschenbach

The proof is in the pudding when they come home. Will we have the data about their health, will we know where they were stationed, what their unit deployments were? I will need that information. -Anthony Principi

I will provide friendly and courteous service and will work closely with all departments in the county. I will abide by the Texas Information Act in providing information to the public. -Anne Grant

High value information came from interrogations in which those methods were used and provided a deeper understanding of the al Qa'ida organization that was attacking this country. -Dennis C. Blair

The information gained from these techniques was valuable in some instances, but there is no way of knowing whether the same information could have been obtained through other means. -Dennis C. Blair

You shouldn't listen to us at all if you're looking for information. We don't take ourselves seriously on any level; we're just comedians. -Stephen Colbert

I did not go to military school. I had an option either a military school or a private school. I don't know how to get that out of the information that's out there. -Channing Tatum

Torture is an impermissible evil. Except under two circumstances. The first is the ticking time bomb. An innocent's life is at stake. The bad guy you have captured possesses information that could save this life. He refuses to divulge. In such a case, the choice is easy. -Charles Krauthammer

Based on assessment of all available information and following several expert consultations, I have decided to raise the current level of influenza pandemic alert from phase 4 to phase 5. -Margaret Chan

We give you the facts. I told you information is power – knowledge is power. We can't be in an ideological battle to redeem the soul of this country if we don't have the facts. -Tavis Smiley

People have really gotten comfortable not only sharing more information and different kinds, but more openly and with more people – and that social norm is just something that has evolved over time. -Mark Zuckerberg

We get information in the mail, the regular postal mail, encrypted or not, vet it like a regular news organization, format it – which is sometimes something that's quite hard to do, when you're talking about giant databases of information – release it to the public and then defend ourselves against the inevitable legal and political attacks. -Julian Assange

Well, there's a question as to what sort of information is important in the world, what sort of information can achieve reform. And there's a lot of information. So information that organizations are spending economic effort into concealing, that's a really good signal that when the information gets out, there's a hope of it doing some good. -Julian Assange

We have a way of dealing with information that has sort of personal – personally identifying information in it. But there are legitimate secrets – you know, your records with your doctor; that's a legitimate secret. But we deal with whistleblowers that are coming forward that are really sort of well motivated. -Julian Assange

That's a problem. I mean, like any sort of growing startup organization, we are sort of overwhelmed by our growth. And that means we're getting enormous quantity of whistleblower disclosures of a very high caliber, but don't have enough people to actually process and vet this information. -Julian Assange

I think anybody in our – in the, in the national security apparatus has, has got to take full cognizance of their responsibility for the safeguarding of classified information. -Michael Mullen

Even if we give parents all the information they need and we improve school meals and build brand new supermarkets on every corner, none of that matters if when families step into a restaurant, they can't make a healthy choice. -Michelle Obama

I am a data hound and so I usually end up working on whatever things I can find good data on. The rise of Internet commerce completely altered the amount of information you could gather on company behavior so I naturally drifted toward it. -Austan Goolsbee

And so to those who suggest that we are somehow 'harming' young women by encouraging them to take charge of their health we say this: We are not harming young women by educating them. We are arming them with information that they will carry with them throughout their lives. -Debbie Wasserman Schultz

Every ISP is being attacked, maliciously both from in the United States and outside of the United States, by those who want to invade people's privacy. But more importantly they want to take control of computers, they want to hack them, they want to steal information. -Darrell Issa

Every portal coming into this country is being attacked by those who would harvest information, both national security secrets and just the common information of private individuals and private individuals. That crime is going on, every day, on a single entity known as the Internet. -Darrell Issa

We put people of concern on the watch list or the no-fly list, so we have a number of layers of security beyond the airport checkpoint. We gather as much information about a passenger as the law allows without profiling. -John Pistole

I think if we're going to live in this – in this world – in this technological world where information can be disseminated so quickly, we have to be serious and take firm, strong action against those who are putting American lives at risk. Because this will put people's lives at risk. -Peter T. King

True information does good. -Julian Assange

Wikileaks is a mechanism to maximize the flow of information to maximize the amount of action leading to just reform. -Julian Assange

I will not comment on or confirm what are alleged to be stolen State Department cables. But I can say that the United States deeply regrets the disclosure of any information that was intended to be confidential, including private discussions between counterparts or our diplomats' personal assessments and observations. -Hillary Clinton

The United States strongly condemns the illegal disclosure of classified information. It puts people's lives in danger, threatens our national security, and undermines our efforts to work with other countries to solve shared problems. -Hillary Clinton

The last real movie stars were probably Redford and Newman. And things were different then. There wasn't this amazing amount of magazines and information about them. -George Clooney

I mean the fact is that some of this information that we have found out that led to Usama bin Laden actually came from these enhanced interrogation techniques. -Rick Santorum

I kind of embarked on a fruitless search to find information about my character, Frederick Aiken. And it was fruitless, unfortunately, because there's so little about him. -James McAvoy

We're all bombarded with so many dietary messages that it's hard to find time to sort through all this information, but we do have time to take a look at our kids' plates. -Michelle Obama

We've got to lift our game tremendously. We'll sell our business news and information in print, we'll sell it to anyone who's got a cable system, and we'll sell it on the Web. -Rupert Murdoch

It was a mistake. On the information we had, we shouldn't have prosecuted the war. We shouldn't have changed our argument from international law to regime change in a non-transparent way. It was an error for which we as a country paid a heavy price, and for which many people paid with their lives. -Ed Balls

Space and time, not proteins and neurons, hold the answer to the problem of consciousness. When we consider the nerve impulses entering the brain, we realize that they are not woven together automatically, any more than the information is inside a computer. -Robert Lanza

This revolution, the information revoultion, is a revolution of free energy as well, but of another kind: free intellectual energy. It's very crude today, yet our Macintosh computer takes less power than a 100-watt bulb to run it and it can save you hours a day. What will it be able to do ten or 20 years from now, or 50 years from now? -Steve Jobs

These technologies can make life easier, can let us touch people we might not otherwise. You may have a child with a birth defect and be able to get in touch with other parents and support groups, get medical information, the latest experimental drugs. These things can profoundly influence life. I'm not downplaying that. -Steve Jobs

Hip-hop reflects the truth, and the problem is that hip-hop exposes a lot of the negative truth that society tries to conceal. It's a platform where we could offer information, but it's also an escape. -Busta Rhymes

At a minimum the majority of search dollars will flow to a social media model because people care most about what their peers think and the technology is there for that information to be quickly shared on products and services. -Erik Qualman

What we are trying to do is to look at all of those resources and say, well, would they be better spent on just advocacy and information, or can we make savings out of that and redirect them into savings. -Jay Weatherill

I actually think Bill Gates is conventionally smarter, even though it's a dumb word, but mental processing power – I've watched him use four different screens, process information, get to the right answer, boom boom boom. -Walter Isaacson

In Canada you grow up – we're next to the United States. We're watching whatever you're watching. We're following your news. It's obvious that we are inundated with American cultural information and political information. Whereas the opposite is not true. -Rick Mercer

I enjoy what Twitter is because I can really connect with the fans and it's a great way to share information with them and it's also a great way to entertain. I like being able to put a smile on people's faces and letting them know what I'm doing. -Peter Facinelli

Well, getting behind the camera is something I've always wanted to get involved with. Ever since I was doing movies like 'Zathura' I was very interested in all the different jobs on set and kind of soaking all the information up like a sponge. -Josh Hutcherson

Women communicate differently and process information differently, which leads them to resolve conflicts differently. -Dee Dee Myers

And the user may have a higher comfort level deciding what information to provide rather than worrying about what inferences might be made from what they've gathered. -Edward Felten

Mistakes, after all, are endemic to foreign and military policy given the unpredictability of events and the difficulty of securing reliable information in a place like Iraq. -Eric Alterman

The problem became this: We became a caricature of ourselves. We were after light, and it began to look as though we were after heat, not to reveal some information or not to find out the story. -Mike Wallace

I would like to see every parent either directly – if they are comfortable with the technology – or through a personal tutor, being able to access real-time information about their child. -Jim Knight

I think I've begun to take for granted how easily information can swirl around me. -Sean Astin

I like to go on the court and have a little bit of information about my opponent. -Mary Pierce

I love to post behind-the-scenes photos of what is really going on. My twitter friends really seem to like that and the great thing is I can deliver them information right away. -Nancy O'Dell

I am not a fan of Facebook or Twitter. They both allow too much information to be available and they make privacy a thing of the past. -Kirsty Gallacher

I know what's it's like to grow up with ADHD and how important it is for parents, caregivers and patients, to have access to accurate information. -Ty Pennington

I was very new to working in front of the camera when I started shooting 'Gatsby', so I set myself the mission of gleaning as much information as possible out of the much more experienced actors. The cast was astoundingly talented. -Elizabeth Debicki

There's so much going on in the world. There's so much information being thrown at us – so many things are being sold to us, and we're being told how we should appear and how to be more successful, blah, blah, blah. How does that manifest itself? In the pressures, the stress, this need to escape. -Michael Fassbender

When I climb a fourteener, a 14,000-foot/4,260-meter peak, in the winter by myself, I leave an itinerary and information about where my vehicle will be parked and the name of the county sheriff to contact in case I don't get home. -Aron Ralston

The beautiful thing about my intelligence is that it doesn't really come in one specific department. So even if something hasn't happened to me, I have information on how to get you through whatever you may be going through. -Tyrese Gibson

In my book, I detail the critical information we obtained from al Qaeda terrorists after they became compliant following a short period of enhanced interrogation. I have no doubt that that interrogation was legal, necessary and saved lives. -Jose Rodriguez

It is good that these terrorists are now facing justice, but in the reporting of the case, it would be helpful if the media didn't help them with their propaganda mission by unquestioningly repeating false information about their detention. -Jose Rodriguez

I felt like I was living in some sort of video game and people pre-empting every move I made, obviously as a result of accessing my private information. -Sienna Miller

People have given me classified information, but always with the disclaimer 'This can never end up in a book.' And it never does. -David Baldacci

The Chinese people have been forced to forget the Tiananmen massacre. There has been no public debate about the event, no official apology. The media aren't allowed to mention it. Still today people are being persecuted and imprisoned for disseminating information about it. -Ma Jian

I meant that the Chinese people are not aware of their own entrapment. They believe they live in a free society, but don't realize how much they are being monitored and controlled, how much the information they receive is restricted and warped, until they step out of line, that is, and feel the heavy hand of the state fall on them. -Ma Jian

I go to bars and restaurants, and I sit and I eavesdrop on people and I watch people in shopping centers and, you know, I read the newspapers and I talk to the Trenton cops, and I just get a lot of information that comes in that somehow turns into a book. -Janet Evanovich

I get fed up with plots that are driven by someone constantly getting information on a computer. -Liam Neeson

While weight loss is important, what's more important is the quality of food you put in your body – food is information that quickly changes your metabolism and genes. -Mark Hyman

Coaches give you too much information. I've been allowed to develop that intuitive ability in my career and lifetime. -Tiffeny Milbrett

Satellite broadcasting makes it possible for information-hungry residents of many closed societies to bypass state-controlled television channels. -Rupert Murdoch

Raising myself and caring for my brothers and sisters allowed me the benefit of a lot of information that I wouldn't have otherwise gotten. I had to be frugal, thoughtful, resourceful. I didn't have anyone to tell me, 'You can't.' -Sandra Lee

We got a lot of information from the detainees that eventually led us to bin Laden. -Jose Rodriguez

What's nice about playing somebody real is that generally there's more information about them, so a lot of the questions that you'd otherwise have to make up the answers to are already there. -Keira Knightley

Most people I've talked to are convinced that they're not getting valuable information from news media anymore. I'm not talking about tinfoil-hatters either, these are intelligent people who believe their news media has failed them. -Drew Curtis

As a leader, you have to have the ability to assimilate new information and understand that there might be a different view. -Madeleine Albright

People tend to think of the web as a way to get information or perhaps as a place to carry out e-commerce. But really, the web is about accessing applications. -Marc Andreessen

There is an enormous market demand for information. It just has to be fulfilled in a way that fits with the technology of our times. -Marc Andreessen

Film school is a complete con, because the information is there if you want it. -Paul Thomas Anderson

I work best inundated with things, when it's like raining information. -Ryan Seacrest

So I came from an environment where I was starved for information, starved for connection. -Marc Andreessen

If the story is good enough, if it's imaginative enough, if it's moving enough it is going to reach deeper than the level of sheer information and change somebody's life two degrees. That is an enormous achievement. -David Remnick

Families are struggling against a tide of junk information on junk food. -Diane Abbott

All the information you could want is constantly streaming at you like a runaway truck – books, newspaper stories, Web sites, apps, how-to videos, this article you're reading, even entire magazines devoted to single subjects like charcuterie or wedding cakes or pickles. -Mario Batali

Google is one of the most incredible breakthroughs that we have today. Yes, it can scare a lot of patients, thinking we're all dying because we look up something on Google. But there's also a lot of anecdotal information from parents, firsthand accounts of what they did for their own child. -Jenny McCarthy

The most interesting information I can have about a competitor is the cost. -Carlos Ghosn

I'm interested in how the Internet spreads information. -Cass Sunstein

Why do people do things that they fear? It may be that the fear contains information. Something can be interesting if you get to the other side of that fear. -Craig Ferguson

During the '90s the flow of misinformation was established. -David Brock

A generation ago, or two, when there were three channels, plus PBS, and when you needed – when you needed 15 million people to make a living, the media could focus on the broad country. And most people had no choice about getting political information. It was there at 6:30 whether you wanted it or not. -David Frum

It's the age of information and we need to just get as informed as we can about what other things might help us live healthy lives. -Linda Hamilton

The information I have about Iran is second hand. -Marjane Satrapi

Public discourse has been polluted now for decades by corporate-funded disinformation – not just with climate change but with a host of health, environmental and societal threats. The implications for the planet are grim. -Michael E. Mann

I have this pet thing about how global communications are moving so fast now, throwing information at you, making everything available to you, and yet I feel it's leaving us more and more isolated. -Mike Rutherford

The central paradox of the machines that have made our lives so much brighter, quicker, longer and healthier is that they cannot teach us how to make the best use of them; the information revolution came without an instruction manual. -Pico Iyer

The 'information novel' shouldn't be a curiosity. It should be absolutely mainstream. -Richard Powers

If we live in a world where information drives what we do, the information we get becomes the most important thing. The person who chooses that information has power. -Seth Godin

The thing about information is that information is more valuable when people know it. There's an exception for business information and super timely information, but in all other cases, ideas that spread win. -Seth Godin

We're not going to outgrow our need for information. -Seth Godin

Bureaucrats sometimes do not have the correct information, while citizens and users of resources do. -Elinor Ostrom

Any good broadcast, not just an Olympic broadcast, should have texture to it. It should have information, should have some history, should have something that's offbeat, quirky, humorous, and where called for it, should have journalism, and judiciously it should also have commentary. That's my ideal. -Bob Costas

Think of your existing power as the exponent in an equation that determines the value of information. The more power you have, the more additional power you derive from the new data. -Bruce Schneier

Many of the criticisms about McDonald's are false. We are keen to provide people with as much nutritional information as possible to help them manage their diets. -Charlie Bell

I think it's important to recall… what you remember your grandmother making, where you're from and the foods you enjoyed as a child yourself, and pass that information off to your kids. -Tyler Florence

The original idea of the web was that it should be a collaborative space where you can communicate through sharing information. -Tim Berners-Lee

Oh, I think there are a lot of people who would be buying and selling online today that go up there and they get the information, but then when it comes time to type in their credit card they think twice because they're not sure about how that might get out and what that might mean for them. -Bill Gates

The craving for information is so huge now, and it can be marketed at such a rapid rate. -Clint Eastwood

Crazy old people are our entire source of polling information. -P. J. O'Rourke

I used to think information was destroyed in black hole. This was my biggest blunder, or at least my biggest blunder in science. -Stephen Hawking

Quite frankly, I'm a member of the investigative committee, one of the senior members of the panel. I don't take our investigative facts and information from a magazine or some article. -John Mica

There's a logic to dreams that doesn't necessarily follow linear narrative. You don't know why things happen, it's your subconscious pushing you, to give you information. -Justin Theroux

What person here illegally (and in his right mind), will go to the government, announce being here illegally (e.g. plead guilty), provide all sorts of information as to where that person lives etc. to get a work permit only to be a target for deportation in two years? -Greta Van Susteren

Modern-day cinema takes the form of a sermon. You don't get to think, you only get to receive information. -Gus Van Sant

What can we put into the hands of people under oppressive regimes to help them? For me, a big part of it is information, knowledge – the ability to defeat propaganda by understanding it. -Jimmy Wales

A huge amount of what goes on in the Middle East has to do with people being fed really bad information. -Jimmy Wales

If I had some information, the last thing I would ever do with it is send it to Wikileaks. -Jimmy Wales

Perspective gives us the ability to accurately contrast the large with the small, and the important with the less important. Without it we are lost in a world where all ideas, news, and information look the same. We cannot differentiate, we cannot prioritize, and we cannot make good choices. -John Sununu

I think a lot of people, even Christians, are willing to be satisfied with gaining lots and lots of biblical knowledge – and many people go to Bible studies and don't realize it isn't enough to know what's right, it's applying the information and the knowledge that you have. -Charles Stanley

Russia does not have in its possession any trustworthy data that supports the existence of nuclear weapons or any weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and we have not received any such information from our partners as yet. -Vladimir Putin

Freedom is about a way of thinking. Freedom is about understanding that you can do anything that you want and freedom is about being able to take information and education and make it relevant to your own growth every single day. Freedom is not staying in the box. Freedom is not doing what other people want you to do. -Stedman Graham

Advertising works most effectively when it's in line with what people are already trying to do. And people are trying to communicate in a certain way on Facebook – they share information with their friends, they learn about what their friends are doing – so there's really a whole new opportunity for a new type of advertising model within that. -Mark Zuckerberg

Back, you know, a few generations ago, people didn't have a way to share information and express their opinions efficiently to a lot of people. But now they do. Right now, with social networks and other tools on the Internet, all of these 500 million people have a way to say what they're thinking and have their voice be heard. -Mark Zuckerberg

I think that more flow of information, the ability to stay connected to more people makes people more effective as people. And I mean, that's true socially. It makes you have more fun, right. It feels better to be more connected to all these people. You have a richer life. -Mark Zuckerberg

There's a danger in the internet and social media. The notion that information is enough, that more and more information is enough, that you don't have to think, you just have to get more information – gets very dangerous. -Edward de Bono

I'm quite good at taking in information so I voraciously inhale Wikipedia – which may have some things wrong in it, but I think is generally more information than we had before. Last tour we didn't have Wikipedia. And then Discovery Channel and History Channel. I can take it in and retain what I think are the most important facts. -Eddie Izzard

The auditioning process is one in which the actor gets very little information about almost every element of it. -Danny Strong

Every time one person gets a piece of information, the likelihood of that information being exposed grows exponentially. It's no longer two people. It's two people squared. -Jon Cryer

I don't feel overwhelmed with information. I really like it. -Marissa Mayer

I think that there is a generational change, where new generations that have grown up always having access to the internet have a somewhat different view in terms of personal information and what needs to be kept private. -Marissa Mayer

I think that ultimately over time we really should strive for a place where most information is available online and is searchable. -Marissa Mayer

I'm the chairman of the intelligence committee. We don't only get formal briefings, but we collect our information from the intelligence community in a variety of ways. -Mike Rogers

I tried to steer the student newspaper toward more pertinent information instead of the usual gossip and bull. -Tom Bergeron

I'm in an environment where I have a lot of information about how to stay healthy and live a good life. I love vegan and raw food, I love to exercise. If I weren't in this business, I think I would be aging differently. -Connie Britton

It was what became something of a pattern in the first couple of years of the Clinton White House and maybe even longer, where information would drip, drip, drip, drip, drip out which would keep stories alive, alive, alive. -Dee Dee Myers

President Clinton intentionally created a structure that was a little loose. And one that kept him a little in the center. He didn't want one person filtering all the information that went to him. He had always operated with a lot of information coming in and a lot of stuff going out. -Dee Dee Myers

You can't leave out half the world's experience and expect to address all the problems. Women communicate differently and process information differently, which leads them to resolve conflicts differently. -Dee Dee Myers

What frustrates me about some high-concept shows is that they don't give you information until sweeps, but 'Jericho's' audience will get a large piece of the puzzle every week. -Sprague Grayden

You know, I guess there's enough information out there to support that I'm a crazy, wild dude and rock and roll and this, that and the other. And there's enough information to support that, you know, I'm a single father, that, you know, has been a pretty standup guy in his community and pretty private about that stuff. But it's on both sides. -Kid Rock

I think the Internet is absolutely extraordinary. It's very, very useful and I think one of the things we've got to do is make sure that the African continent gets on to that information super highway. -Thabo Mbeki

People get their information in different ways now. And we are a little poorer for it, because the way you get information affects what you learn. -Hugh Hefner

I was a halfback on an American football team in Athens, Greece – the Kississia Colts – where I went to high school, and we took the Cup my senior year. The downside, and somewhat unfortunate piece of information I have to pass on, is there were only two teams in the league because of the limited amount of Americans. -Greg Kinnear

My site has the whole thing – blogs, information, video interviews. -William Shatner

I know very little about the viral, electronic world, but I use Twitter to communicate not only information that I think some of the fans want to hear about but also ideas. -William Shatner

We get sucked into the Internet and streaming information, and it's time to just unplug and look within. -Jonathan Cain

There is a real hunger for information about Obama and a sense that information is not being covered or, in some cases, even being withheld. There is a sense that there are elements of the media that are protective of Obama, that they would rather block a story that is embarassing about Obama than let the American public decide. -Dinesh D'Souza

We give the podium to a lot of people who shouldn't have the podium. The message that's delivered the loudest and in the most entertaining way is the one that we're going to put on because that's what we want. We want ratings more than we want to deliver information. That's just where the culture's gotten. -Dave Matthews

The need to understand prescription information can literally be a matter of life and death. -Andrew Cuomo

Companies should be able to share specific threat information with the government without the prospect of lawsuits hanging over their head. -Leon Panetta

The past two decades revolutionized the way we access information. You and I can have our questions answered with the click of a mouse at any time of day. If America, both corporation and citizen alike, can use these services to solve problems, why can't Washington? -J. C. Watts

I don't think many people anticipated how the Internet was going to revolutionize the way we disseminate information. -Larry Flynt

People don't have a good intuitive sense of how to weigh new information in light of what they already know. They tend to overrate it. -Nate Silver

People gravitate toward information that implies a happier outlook for them. -Nate Silver

We're not that much smarter than we used to be, even though we have much more information – and that means the real skill now is learning how to pick out the useful information from all this noise. -Nate Silver

The key to making a good forecast is not in limiting yourself to quantitative information. -Nate Silver

I love magazines. It's such McNugget kind of information. -Scott Adams

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

You're sort of programmed a certain way because of your environment. That's all you know. But we don't have that anymore because of the internet. Because of the internet we're all communicating with each other all across the board, so you're getting information from people all around the world, hitting a much more diverse slice of culture. -Joe Rogan

Social engineering is using manipulation, influence and deception to get a person, a trusted insider within an organization, to comply with a request, and the request is usually to release information or to perform some sort of action item that benefits that attacker. -Kevin Mitnick

Oracle, for example, has even hired people to dumpster dive for information about its competitor, Microsoft. It's not even illegal, because trash isn't covered by data secrecy laws. -Kevin Mitnick

The key to social engineering is influencing a person to do something that allows the hacker to gain access to information or your network. -Kevin Mitnick

When you're told to go brief a United States senator on a covert operation, you go do it. And you trust the information isn't going to leak. -Oliver North

To chase an athlete that really doesn't want to speak with you and when you finally get him, gives you three words and you have to write a story based on three words of information he gave you, that's pretty tough. -Junior Seau

We're as clever as we think we are, but we'll be a lot cleverer when we learn to use not just one brain but to pool huge numbers of brains. We're at a level technologically where we can share information and think collectively about our problems. We do it in science all the time – there's no reason why we can't do it in other endeavors. -Lewis Thomas

Ants are so much like human beings as to be an embarrassment. They farm fungi, raise aphids as livestock, launch armies into war, use chemical sprays to alarm and confuse enemies, capture slaves, engage in child labour, exchange information ceaselessly. They do everything but watch television. -Lewis Thomas

Most people who are activists and are concerned about issues get their information from sources which reinforce their opinions and give them the facts that they want to hear. -Barney Frank

It's part of a writer's profession, as it's part of a spy's profession, to prey on the community to which he's attached, to take away information – often in secret – and to translate that into intelligence for his masters, whether it's his readership or his spy masters. And I think that both professions are perhaps rather lonely. -John le Carre

Today, if you have an Internet connection, you have at your fingertips an amount of information previously available only to those with access to the world's greatest libraries – indeed, in most respects what is available through the Internet dwarfs those libraries, and it is incomparably easier to find what you need. -Peter Singer

The hope of Internet anarchists was that repressive governments would have only two options: accept the Internet with its limitless possibilities of spreading information, or restrict Internet access to the ruling elite and turn your back on the 21st century, as North Korea has done. -Peter Singer

Science is not a heartless pursuit of objective information. It is a creative human activity, its geniuses acting more as artists than as information processors. -Stephen Jay Gould

I became a journalist partly so that I wouldn't ever have to rely on the press for my information. -Christopher Hitchens

There is a limit on how much information you can keep bottled up. -Dick Gregory

Now is the era of intellect, information and the Internet. -Lech Walesa

When I was fighting communism, there was rapid development of satellite television and cell phones, and communism, to survive, would have to block all these information devices. -Lech Walesa

Our world is so glutted with useless information, images, useless images, sounds, all this sort of thing. It's a cacophony, it's like a madness I think that's been happening in the past twenty-five years. And I think anything that can help a person sit in a room alone and not worry about it is good. -Martin Scorsese

I don't mind close-ups, I like them, but they're kind of forceful – you see a lot, you get a lot of information in a close-up. There's less mystery. -David Duchovny

By what you do, you teach your children how to respond to difficult information. -Elizabeth Edwards

I love playing a role where I think I'm right and then you learn you're not. And it's what you do with that information. -Kyle Chandler

Novelists have to be adept at controlling the flow of information, and, most crucially, they have to be in charge of the narrative. -Ian Mcewan

It should simply be an empirical matter whether the climate is changing or not and whether we're responsible. But the various sides of the debate have now become so tribal that it's no longer a matter of changing our views as more information comes in. -Ian Mcewan

History is information. Memory is part of your identity. -David Miliband

I think social networks are really working for the drivers, because we're able to talk directly to fans and they get first-hand information. And I think it's great for the partners as well and the businesses that are involved in Formula One. -Jenson Button

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

I am State Senator Russell Pearce, the author of SB1070, which was signed by Governor Jan Brewer. Fear mongering and misinformation is the tool of the Left against this common sense legislation. -Russell Pearce

In some respects, inside information is a form of financial steroid. It is unfair: it is offensive; it is unlawful; and it puts a black mark on the entire enterprise. -Preet Bharara

I think Facebook's biggest problem is the glut of information that Facebook's power users are overwhelmed with. -Sean Parker

Facebook is at the forefront. It's the company that can fundamentally change the way information is being exchanged and processed. It can be the basis for artificial intelligence to develop over time. -Yuri Milner

Search as a paradigm will continue to be probably even increasingly important because the information that's out there is only going to grow exponentially – and the only way to sort through all that is by some form of search. -David Filo

The United States has the most sophisticated financial markets in the world, which does not leave much room to maneuver. But it also offers investors the greatest access to information and the ability to execute trades quickly and efficiently. So it is a mixed bag of opportunity. -Andrew Lo

In fiction, plenty do the job of conveying information, rousing suspense, painting characters, enabling them to speak. But only certain sentences breathe and shift about, like live matter in soil. -Jhumpa Lahiri

People's minds are overloaded with information. -Allen Leech

I don't think there's any information to be gotten from television. -David Mamet

Now an embryo may seem like some scientific or laboratory term, but in fact the embryo contains the unique information that defines a person. All you add is food and climate control, and some time, and the embryo becomes you or me. -Todd Akin

What the Internet's value is that you have access to information but you also have access to every lunatic that's out there that wants to throw up a blog. -George A. Romero

I really don't have the time to spend much time online, I do have web tv, which I use when I need information. -Gabrielle Reece

I told my father to stop smoking around the age of two or three years old and he stopped smoking. So the relationship between the kid and the parent is very powerful, and if you give the kid the right information, it can be very useful to the family. -Doug E. Fresh

I think that if your approach is one where you don't want to alienate anybody, you're going to have to soften the viewpoint or the information that you're offering to such an extent that it doesn't have the power to make any difference. You have to take that risk. -Eddie Vedder

I think in our time, you know, so much of the information we get is pre-polarized. Fiction has a way of reminding us that we actually are very similar in our emotions and our neurology and our desires and our fears, so I think it's a nice way to neutralize that polarization. -George Saunders

I've spent more than a decade channeling information for and about men. I'm able to come and use this information, with the help of the research, to hand over the keys to the kingdom to women. -David Zinczenko

When I was a kid going into the movies, you weren't force-fed information everywhere you looked about what the movie was going to be. -J. J. Abrams

If we enter into the kind of world that Google likes, the world that Google wants, it's a world where information is copied so much on the Internet that nobody knows where it came from anymore, so there can't be any rights of authorship. -Jaron Lanier

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

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

I mean, you can't have advertising be the only official business of the information economy if the information economy is going to take over. -Jaron Lanier

The nature of honesty is that if someone has information or knows something about you that you don't want heard, then they have power over you. -Ben Folds

I think that's always very valuable: to keep the mind open to receiving all sorts of information, which can then be used in my work, but also just as a human being. -P. J. Harvey

To get away from poverty, you need several things at the same time: school, health, and infrastructure – those are the public investments. And on the other side, you need market opportunities, information, employment, and human rights. -Hans Rosling

The main thing I love about street photography is that you find the answers you don't see at the fashion shows. You find information for readers so they can visualize themselves. -Bill Cunningham

Broadband access is the great equalizer, leveling the playing field so that every willing and able person, no matter their station in life, has access to the information and tools necessary to achieve the American Dream. -Michael K. Powell

Computer games tend to be boys' games, warlike games with more violence. We have not spent enough time thinking through how to encourage more girls to be involved in computing before coming to college so they can see a possible career in information technology. -Freeman A. Hrabowski III

If you create incredible value and information for others that can change their lives – and you always stay focused on that service – the financial success will follow. -Brendon Burchard

When you have a few billion people connected with screens, not voice… screens are important. You can transmit a thousand times more information. -Yuri Milner

One of the companies that we've invested in is called Facebook. In only two years, between 2009 and 2011, the information exchanged between people increased 28 times. And that cannot be explained by new people joining Facebook. -Yuri Milner

It's a little known fact that one in three family pets gets lost during its lifetime, and approximately 9 million pets enter shelters each year. That's why it's a wonderful thing to get your pet microchipped and registered with your contact information because then they can be located and the owners can track where their pets are. -Betty White

I think a lot of films do themselves a disfavor by putting in way too much information, and everyone knows what's gonna happen next, and no one can actually discover things as they go. -Elizabeth Olsen

One of the things I constantly think about as a writer is the way in which people are full of contradictions – there's all this contradictory information inside a human personality. -Justin Cronin

Now the amygdala is our early warning detector, our danger detector. It sorts and scours through all of the information looking for anything in the environment that might harm us. So given a dozen news stories, we will preferentially look at the negative news. -Peter Diamandis

If you can get better at your job, you should be an active member of LinkedIn, because LinkedIn should be connecting you to the information, insights and people to be more effective. -Reid Hoffman

If you're trying to be more creative, one of the most important things you can do is increase the volume and diversity of the information to which you are exposed. -Jonah Lehrer

The key is to cut out the middleman and empower both doctor and patient with information about what things cost. -Ben Carson

There is so much potential out there in young people and they aren't getting the right information or being encouraged in the right ways. This is our duty as a society. -Ben Carson

It's not that the system is broken, but clearly there are ways to improve the system, strengthen it, to make sure that we can put together the various bits and pieces of information in a way that allows us to stop every single terrorist out there. -John O. Brennan

We need to make sure that leaks of classified information, of national security secrets, needs to be rigorously pursued and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. -John O. Brennan

I think that the Information Age is great, but there's a downside to it obviously as well, and it's that false information can be perpetuated so quickly. And it's sad that so many people will believe it. -Josh Hopkins

I do not go on my Wikipedia page. There's just too much weird information on there for me to pick apart. -Amos Lee

Learning about the way people process information and their emotions is hugely helpful to my work. -Ellen Pompeo

I battled with my weight as a teenager, partly because there wasn't the information or conversation about how to live a healthy lifestyle. -Alison Sweeney

You might call me a tech intermediary. I know how to talk to the people in Silicon Valley and then take that information and explain it to everyone else. -Marc Ostrofsky

The evolution of social media into a robust mechanism for social transformation is already visible. Despite many adamant critics who insist that tools like Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube are little more than faddish distractions useful only to exchange trivial information, these critics are being proven wrong time and again. -Simon Mainwaring

The launch of Google+ apps sends a powerful signal – the personalized web has begun. What this means is that the way information is structured and accessed will turn on the individual, or rather their personal profile which is a composite of all the data collected on the basis of what they have searched for and shared. -Simon Mainwaring

Consumers around the world are more aware of the multiple global crises we face than ever before, thanks to information found on the Internet. -Simon Mainwaring

As a function of the easy access to information provided by the Internet, and the ease with which it can be shared thanks to social media, consumers are now better informed as to the behavior of brands and the multiple global crises we face. -Simon Mainwaring

There is an overwhelming amount of information available to us all on the web each day, not to mention what is shared with us by our family, friends, fans, and followers. This necessitates the need to filter through all that information and to decide for ourselves where to put our attention. -Simon Mainwaring

Non-disclosure in the Internet Age is quickly perceived as a breach of trust. Government, corporations and each of us as individuals must recalibrate how we live and share our lives appropriate to the information now available and the expectations of others. -Simon Mainwaring

One already feels like an anachronism, writing novels in the age of what-ever-this-is-the-age-of, but touring to promote them feels doubly anachronistic. The marketplace is showing an increasing intolerance for the time-honored practice of printing information on paper and shipping it around the country. -Lev Grossman

In terms of a narrative nonfiction book, when you're describing scenes that you have multiple sources for, and that you have differing sources for, and you decide to choose a path that puts all that information together, well yeah, there's definitely going to be a little bit of the author in that. But there's nothing wrong with that. -Ben Mezrich

At a very young age I was predicting outcomes, trying to take all the information and find the best route to wherever I was going. I avoided a lot of pitfalls because of that. -Jennifer Carpenter

One of the things I've started doing lately is tracking my dreams. I feel like there's a lot of information there and you can really bring those emotions to the situations that may feel mundane or familiar. That gives them new life and gives you a new relationship with it – if that makes any sort of sense. -Jennifer Carpenter

I am of mixed minds about the issue of privacy. On one hand, I understand that information is power, and power is, well, power, so keeping your private information to yourself is essential – especially if you are a controversial figure, a celebrity, or a dissident. -Susan Orlean

You can find out anything you want about a car now, and especially every bit of information about the price, without relying on the dealers. -Susan Orlean

The world is not ideal, and the only weapon we can give our children is information. Information which is not pretty, but honest. -Cristina Saralegui

The world is really run by the Web. There's so much information out there that you can click and keep going down the rabbit hole finding stuff. -Big Boi

People think they're getting objective information, but they're not. They're getting news wrapped up in opinion. -Lynn Samuels

I am fascinated by all the new technology that creates places for us to meet in what is called cyberspace. I understand what it must have meant for the rebellions in the 19th century, especially in 1830 and 1848, when the mass circulated newspaper became so important for the spreading of information. -Henning Mankell

Many people make the mistake of confusing information with knowledge. They are not the same thing. Knowledge involves the interpretation of information. Knowledge involves listening. -Henning Mankell

If you're talking to an architect, he can look at a blank piece of paper, and once the initial design is there, the formula kicks in. Each room should have something unique and different about it – much the same way that in a song, every eight bars or so, a new piece of information should be introduced. -Ryan Tedder

I live to collect information, and I am also a perfectionist. -Meghan O'Rourke

To break boundaries interests me. With all the knowledge that is available now in the world, it should be accessible to everyone. You can get so much information on the Internet now, and yet there are so many places in the world where people just don't have the education. -Melanie Griffith

The language of chemistry simply does not mesh with that of biology. Chemistry is about substances and how they react, whereas biology appeals to concepts such as information and organisation. Informational narratives permeate biology. -Paul Davies

The way life manages information involves a logical structure that differs fundamentally from mere complex chemistry. Therefore chemistry alone will not explain life's origin, any more than a study of silicon, copper and plastic will explain how a computer can execute a program. -Paul Davies

Imagine a civilisation that's way in advance of us wants to communicate with us, and assist us in our development. The information we provide to them must reflect our highest aspirations and ideals, and not just be some crazy person's bizarre politics or religion. -Paul Davies

Facebook's the real deal. Nobody can buy Facebook now. Everybody has taken an angle at it. But Facebook may be the place that organizes everybody's personal information. It's got a very good chance of being that. -Barry Diller

I watch documentaries for information. I watch films to be entertained. -Meshell Ndegeocello

There's the movie you write, there's the movie you shoot and the movie you edit, and often, you find that you're getting the same information out of a scene that you already have and a scene that's actually more powerful, so you have to make the tough decision to take it out. -Tate Taylor

Cinema seats make people lazy. They expect to be given all the information. But for me, question marks are the punctuation of life. -Abbas Kiarostami

I find a difference in British spy fiction and American spy fiction. In the American version, it's more militaristic, partly because the CIA has more of the military makeup. Whereas MI6 is more of a cerebral, intelligence-based, relationship-based service, i.e., all they do is recruit people to get information out of them. -Charles Cumming

When there's an emergency weather situation, the local broadcaster is the source of information that often makes the difference between life and death. -Gordon Smith

The real violence is committed in the writing of history, the records of the legal system, the reporting of news, through the manipulation of social contracts, and the control of information. -Bryant H. McGill

Sequencing – the careful striptease by which you reveal information to the reader – matters in an article, but it is absolutely essential to a book. -Joshua Foer

Our culture constantly inundates us with new information, and yet our brains capture so little of it. I can spend half a dozen hours reading a book and then have only a foggy notion of what it was about. -Joshua Foer

If you want to make information stick, it's best to learn it, go away from it for a while, come back to it later, leave it behind again, and once again return to it – to engage with it deeply across time. Our memories naturally degrade, but each time you return to a memory, you reactivate its neural network and help to lock it in. -Joshua Foer

The magic happens when you take facts and figures, features and benefits, decks and PowerPoints – relatively soulless information – and embed them in the telling of a purposeful story. Your 'tell' renders an experience to your audience, making the information inside the story memorable, resonant and actionable. -Peter Guber

To use a word I never thought I'd apply to myself, I've sort of become a Luddite with regard to information. Where everyone else is getting their Twitter feeds from 'The New York Times' and their 'Huffington Post' emails, I live in a little bit of a bubble. -Mark Feuerstein

I never have my CNN off, it's on the whole day. I don't want to be out of range of television. I'm constantly bombarded by information – Somalia one second, Haiti the next – I need that constant pounding. I couldn't write without television. I need to have the world in my room. -Bharati Mukherjee

There is so much misinformation out there. If you give people even a little bit, it gets blown out of proportion then you have to go put out fires. So it's much easier to say, 'No comment.' -Oren Peli

We need to ban assault weapons. We need to ban the high-capacity clips and magazines. We need serious background information, system upgrade. -Michael Nutter

For some reason, the military seems more afraid of gay people than they are against terrorists, but they're very brave with the terrorists… If the terrorists ever got a hold of this information, they'd get a platoon of lesbians to chase us out of Baghdad. -Gary Ackerman

The battle against terrorism is not only a military fight but primarily a battle of information. -Ahmed Chalabi

At a time when the Post Office is losing substantial revenue from the instantaneous flow of information by email and on the Internet, slowing mail service is a recipe for disaster. -Bernie Sanders

Twitter and Facebook are brilliant tools, the journalistic uses of which are still being plumbed. They are great for disseminating interesting material. They are useful for gathering information, including from places that are inaccessible. -Bill Keller

People crave trustworthy information about the world we live in. Some people want it because it is essential to the way they make a living. Some want it because they regard being well-informed as a condition of good citizenship. Some want it because they want something to exchange over dinner tables and water coolers. -Bill Keller

There's no question that sources sometimes have interests aside from the truth when they talk to reporters. That's why reporters have to very aggressively report against their own theses and against their initial information. -Bill Keller

From computers to information technology to airplanes, it has been America's unique blend of republican government and free-market capitalism that has allowed us to surpass all other nations in history. -George Nethercutt

The people you're friends with on Facebook or the people you follow on Twitter are trusted sources of information. -Jonathan Klein

If you are a reliable, honest journalist, sources will open up and trust you and share good information. -Wolf Blitzer

I learned that I suffered from bipolar II disorder, a less serious variant of bipolar I, which was once known as manic depression. The information was naturally frightening; up to 1 in 5 people with bipolar disorder will commit suicide, and rates may even be higher for those suffering from bipolar II. -Ayelet Waldman

In 1989, I started the National Association of Business Women. We incorporated microfinance and different job training for women. We did a survey, with USAID, that found women lacked training, credit and information. -Joyce Banda

We must remember that democracy works when given time to develop, mature and deliver. People must have access to information for informed debate. Government institutions must treat citizens fairly, and with dignity, while responding to their needs. -Atifete Jahjaga

Democracy must be built through open societies that share information. When there is information, there is enlightenment. When there is debate, there are solutions. When there is no sharing of power, no rule of law, no accountability, there is abuse, corruption, subjugation and indignation. -Atifete Jahjaga

We have seven pillars of development. India has a cutting edge information technology industry. We are setting up a technology park. We would like to see technology penetration iin education. Besides, we would like to see cooperation in industries like fashion, filmmaking, ship-building, education, health and energy. -Kamla Persad-Bissessar

I always think, medically… you really have to be your advocate. You have to be able to back up everything that you're feeling with some information and protect yourself through the world of hospitals and doctors' offices, so the more information the better. -Lisa Edelstein

My brain is like a hard drive. Once you start adding new information, you start cutting off old information. -Nathan Fillion

As a historian, what I trust is my ability to take a mass of information and tell a story shaped around it. -Doris Kearns Goodwin

You can only learn by opening yourself up to engage with different sources of information. How can you learn something if you never see it, read it, or hear it? -Fran Tarkenton

Now that I finally have the time for it, this web surfing stuff turns out to be as interesting and fun and addictive as you've all been telling me. Zipping from link to link, chasing an idea across the noosphere, sucking up information like a killer whale – way cool. -Spider Robinson

And I like to convey my feelings, my emotions, my experience, the information I have to public use, public opinion. -Vicente Fox

I'm excited about the opportunities with mobile phones and being able to receive information on the go and relevant to what I'm doing at that moment in time. -Susan Wojcicki

The lowest form of popular culture – lack of information, misinformation, disinformation and a contempt for the truth or the reality of most people's lives – has overrun real journalism. -Carl Bernstein

I don't show just anyone how to crust a sea bass. That's sacred information. -Alex Guarnaschelli

Looking down the road, space exploration and the benefits it yields – in medicine and information technology – should not be overlooked. -Bob Barr

I get much more information about the rest of the world from people who are not Americans. You get a distance from America that is useful for a journalist; useful for my perspective on the world. -Charlayne Hunter-Gault

There's always a miasma of misinformation emerging from the higher education sector as to which are the 'best' courses to take. My advice would always be to ignore the perceived wisdom and look for the most reliable evidence on the ground. -David Puttnam

The most important thing I think teachers can do for young people is to make them inquiring, is to ensure that they know how to gather information, that they check information and they take their information from a multiplicity of sources. -David Puttnam

The need for empowering investors to have information on the way their own money is invested is not going away. -Donald Luskin

I think the search engines are the new equivalent of publishing: an enabler of information. -James Dyson

Enterprise search is becoming an indispensable tool to businesses of all sizes, helping people to find, use and share critical business information quickly. -Jeff Raikes

The way I understand the rules on trading on inside information, it's very vague. -Steven A. Cohen

There's no mystery any more. So my instinct is to show very little, because there's much too much information about everyone, everywhere right now. Reality TV is an example of that. -Feist

Think of Slide as a giant media network for people to transmit information. The content that's in there now has been provided by users – it's whatever they want it to be. -Max Levchin

The dead cannot speak. But hitherto unknown information has emerged from the confidential archives of the Syrian presidency and foreign ministry, published in a new book by Bouthaina Shaaban, who spent ten years as Hafez's interpreter and is still an adviser to his son Bashar. -Robert Fisk

The forced influence of advertising has given us completely useless TV. You don't want that on the Net. But most on-line information providers need to attract advertising – which slows download times and clutters the screen with windows. -Robert Cailliau

Change comes with both fear and some pain. Those two ingredients create mistrust, misunderstanding and misinformation. Such is the process of democracy. -David Mixner

The stock market crash in October 1929 didn't destroy a particularly large amount of wealth or make people highly pessimistic. Rather, it made companies and consumers very unsure about future income, and so led them to stop spending as they waited for more information. -Christina Romer

I learned to be a hot-air balloon pilot to take tourists over the Masai Mara Reserve in order to earn some money and finance the work I was doing with my wife, Anne. We were studying the life of a family of lions for more than two years. Taking pictures was a way to capture information we could not put in words. -Yann Arthus-Bertrand

The human brain works as a binary computer and can only analyze the exact information-based zeros and ones (or black and white). Our heart is more like a chemical computer that uses fuzzy logic to analyze information that can't be easily defined in zeros and ones. -Naveen Jain

You know, plenty of people headed off to Canada or America on the basis of government information, propaganda campaigns. Often you'd go off with a brochure in hand and you'd turn up and it wouldn't be like that at all. -Emma Donoghue

I think I have a very detailed sense of observation. I am interested in the details of people's lives and what information these details give. -Julian Fellowes

Sometimes you have a period piece where you have to research around it but, if the writers have done their homework well enough, the information is all in the script. -Mads Mikkelsen

Magic's about understanding – and then manipulating – how viewers digest the sensory information. -Teller

Much historical fiction that centers on real people has always been deficient in information, lacking in craft and empty in affect. -Hilary Mantel

I think I would have been a reasonably good lawyer. I have a faculty for making sense of mountains of information. -Hilary Mantel

Research for fiction is a funny thing: you go looking for one piece of information, and find something altogether different. -Nell Freudenberger

In college, I went to school for acting; we had to learn phonetics just to be able to do dialects and all that stuff. I'm somebody who does better just hearing it. I'll just imitate it, and I get it better that way. When I know too much information, I'm not great. -Eliza Coupe

I'm moving into that eldership age, you know? I'm at the 'wise woman' age where it's not about learning, but utilizing the information that I have in a way that serves other people. That's a high calling and it's a great responsibility. -Iyanla Vanzant

I admit that I am hopelessly hooked on the printed newspaper. I love turning the pages and the serendipity of stumbling across a piece of irresistible information or a photograph that I wasn't necessarily intending to read. -Jill Abramson

Life is a terminal condition. Were all going to die. Cancer patients just have more information, but we all, in some ways, wait for permission to live. -Kris Carr

I'm steeped in the news because I enjoy the news – I like reading papers, I like reading the blogs, I love talking to newsmakers and pundits, for that matter, about their opinions. I'm an information gatherer by nature, so that's what attracted me about this industry. -Megyn Kelly

I like information. I love when smart people make me think of something in a new way. -Terry Francona

Technology, and applications of this technology, will continue to improve and evolve, providing unprecedented, global access to information, individuals, training, and opportunities. -Maynard Webb

I rush to add that I find the Web infinitely useful for rustling up information, settling arguments or locating the legends of rock stars. -Adam Gopnik

Most of what we know about sales comes from a world of information asymmetry, where for a very long time sellers had more information than buyers. That meant sellers could hoodwink buyers, especially if buyers did not have a lot of choices or a way to talk back. -Daniel H. Pink

I found maths very easy, but I still enjoyed discovering things. You have to have the necessary information. For example, what's the difference between the mean and the median? Probability fascinated me. You have to think very carefully about things, which is the way my mind works anyway. -Daniel Tammet

I'm not a wildly gifted person; I don't play an instrument or speak another language or have great accomplishments in another field, as many writers do. But writing feels natural to me; the act of it seems to free up my unconscious, so that sometimes I feel that I have access to more ideas and information than my conscious mind could think up. -Jennifer Egan

For one who has an interest in the body as text, airports are treasure troves of information. It seems almost un-American to enjoy delays, and perhaps enjoy is not the best word, but certainly a delayed flight, if it does nothing else, allows one the opportunity to make prolonged observations about one's fellow travelers. -Abraham Verghese

What we need in medical schools is not to teach empathy, as much as to preserve it – the process of learning huge volumes of information about disease, of learning a specialized language, can ironically make one lose sight of the patient one came to serve; empathy can be replaced by cynicism. -Abraham Verghese

There is no better source of real-time news than Twitter. With the constant sharing of news and information, if you're an active Twitter user, there's nothing happening, big or small, that you won't know right away. -Raymond Arroyo

Rhyme is a mnemonic device, an aid to the memory. And some poems are themselves mnemonics, that is to say, the whole purpose of the poem is to enable us to remember some information. -James Fenton

The networked world offers the promise that maybe the information technology industry will start to, for the first time in a decade or so, address CEO-level issues. -Louis V. Gerstner, Jr.

Democracy is interactive… It's a constant job of information, education, explanation, listening, and interactive communication. -Dick Gephardt

We will use all lawful tools at our disposal, and that includes authorities under the renewed PATRIOT Act. We firmly believe that our intelligence gathering tools must enable us to collect the information we need to protect the American people. -John O. Brennan

Our democratic values also include – and our national security demands – open and transparent government. Some information obviously needs to be protected. And since his first days in office, President Obama has worked to strike the proper balance between the security the American people deserve and the openness our democratic society expects. -John O. Brennan

I want to be very clear: whenever it is possible to capture a suspected terrorist, it is the unqualified preference of the administration to take custody of that individual so we can obtain information that is vital to the safety and security of the American people. -John O. Brennan

What I like most: Reading well-written sources that take me to another world for hours at a time – and being able to call that 'work!' Also, of course, finding a gem of information that is either exactly what I was looking for, or else fits perfectly into the story in some way. -Linda Sue Park

Kids have no sense of appropriateness. They can ask me whatever they want. You do develop a sense of intimacy with readers, and they tell you things about themselves. During a school year, I'll get e-mails asking about the books. I'll give them information, but I won't do their homework for them. -Lois Lowry

It is much more convenient not to be a public company. As a private company you don't have to give information to the public. Secrecy is an important factor of success in the commodity business. -Marc Rich

The rate of change and innovation occurring across the entire spectrum of society demands that a company like XL utilize the highest level of analytics and information to solve problems for our clients. -Mike McGavick

Do any of us actually want to live in a world where your boss can decide that he or she is morally opposed to mental health care? What if your employer was morally opposed to getting x-rays or antibiotics? How about just being forced to disclose your private medical information to your employer? -Richard Carmona

Tackling the environment should not be a licence to lecture people, because they have no excuse not to exercise, or eat their fruit and vegetables. Nannying – at least among adults – is likely to be counterproductive. Providing information is empowering; lecturing people is not. So, no excuses, no nannying. -Andrew Lansley

I started in business journalism from the outside, so when I started writing about markets and business, I was struck by the fact that markets seemed to work well even though people are often irrational, lack good information and are not perfect in the way they think about decisions. -James Surowiecki

If you thought the advent of the Internet, the spread of cheap and efficient information technology, and the growing fragmentation of the consumer market were all going to help smaller companies thrive at the expense of the slow-moving giants of the Fortune 500, apparently you were wrong. -James Surowiecki

To be sure, if you watch CNBC all day long you'll pick up some interesting news about particular companies and the economy as a whole. Unfortunately, to get to the useful information, you have to wade through reams of useless stuff, with little guidance on how to distinguish between the two. -James Surowiecki

In a world where companies increasingly know about their business in real time, it makes no sense that public reporting mostly follows the old quarterly schedule. Companies sit on vital information until reporting day, at which point the market goes crazy. -James Surowiecki

Markets work best when there's lots of information available and a historical track record to go on; they excel at predicting things like horse races, election outcomes, and box-office results.

The rise of a ubiquitous Internet, along with 24-hour news channels has, in some sense, had the opposite effect from what many might have hoped such free and open access to information would have had.

Resveratrol is fascinating stuff. One of the best sources of information about it is the Immortality Institute. They have a forum where some people are in the 500 Club, as they call it. They've been taking 500 milligrams for years. It's a really great source of data. -Tim Ferriss

Our role as journalists is to give voice to the voiceless, and hold our leaders and institutions accountable. But the circle is only completed when that information is consumed by a free-thinking and engaged audience. -Lester Holt

People tend to think of the web as a way to get information or perhaps as a place to carry out ecommerce. But really, the web is about accessing applications.

Someone picking up the package, putting it in a bag, going somewhere, taking it out of the bag, giving it to someone else. I thought that was so cool. I wanted to map it, to see that flow on a big screen. -Jack Dorsey

I don't use a debit card. The safest thing is a credit card because you're using the bank's money. If someone accesses your information, they are stealing the bank's money, not yours. -Frank Abagnale

The front of a cheque alone gives someone enough information to steal your identity. -Frank Abagnale

Ten percent of the American population thinks that Barack Obama is a Muslim. Those are the people that have not learned the skill of filtering information from the vast barrage of inaccurate information that we're all faced with everyday. I think that's a very 21st century skill. -Michael Azerrad

My father was very disappointed by war and fighting. And he thought language could help us out of cycles of revenge and animosity.

He was always very clear to underscore the fact that Jewish people and Arab people were brother and sister. -Naomi Shihab Nye

The Internet allows the small guy a global marketplace. But technology is harmful in the sense that we get too much information from it. Because of the web we get 10 times the amount of noise we ever got, which makes harmful fallacies far more likely. -Nassim Nicholas Taleb

The problem in the 19th century with information was that we lived in a culture of information scarcity, and so humanity addressed that problem beginning with photography and telegraphy and the – in the 1840s.

When the Internet first came into public use, it was hailed as a liberation from conformity, a floating world ruled by passion, creativity, innovation and freedom of information. When it was hijacked first by advertising and then by commerce, it seemed like it had been fully co-opted and brought into line with human greed and ambition. -Neil Strauss
