There's a little more ego involved in these jobs than people might realize. -Walter Cronkite

I could never hold a job for more than three months, which works out well because that's how long a movie shoots. -Dennis Quaid

Living in L.A., everyone likes to mold you and change you. I don't care about fame, I don't care about being a celebrity. I know that's part of the job, but I don't feed into anyone's idea of who I should be. -Jessica Alba

Women now have choices. They can be married, not married, have a job, not have a job, be married with children, unmarried with children. Men have the same choice we've always had: work, or prison. -Tim Allen

I'm lucky because I have a job I love. I really miss being away from home, being in my own bed, seeing my animals and siblings, having my moms cookies. I have a couple cats. I got a kitten about a year ago and now Im going on the road so I wont see him for a while. I feel bad. -Michelle Branch

Providing, meaning to a mass of unrelated needs, ideas, words and pictures – it is the designer's job to select and fit this material together and make it interesting. -Paul Rand

My job as a portrait photographer is to seduce, amuse and entertain. -Helmut Newton

To succeed in life in today's world, you must have the will and tenacity to finish the job. -Chin-Ning Chu

I've got the greatest job in the world. There's no other job in government where cause and effect is so tightly coupled where you can make a difference every day in so many different ways and in so many different people's lives. It's a great challenge. -Michael Bloomberg

You know you are on the road to success if you would do your job, and not be paid for it. -Oprah Winfrey

Executives owe it to the organization and to their fellow workers not to tolerate nonperforming individuals in important jobs. -Peter Drucker

Most new jobs won't come from our biggest employers. They will come from our smallest. We've got to do everything we can to make entrepreneurial dreams a reality. -Ross Perot

The people who are doing the work are the moving force behind the Macintosh. My job is to create a space for them, to clear out the rest of the organization and keep it at bay. -Steve Jobs

The reality is, Jennifer and I can do our job well because we truly are friends. But when the day's over, she goes home to her boyfriend and I go home to a magazine. -David Schwimmer

That's what is great about what I do, going from one job to the other. -Dennis Quaid

There's no way that I could do a 9 to 5 job. There's no way. I was not cut out for that. You come in and you work for three months on the one job. They say, 'Great,' you know, and you're on to the next one – and you never even got fired. It's wonderful. -Dennis Quaid

It's actually really great to be a student and an actor, because I get to do this job that I love, then just when I think my head might explode, I get to go to school where they don't really care about what magazine cover I'm on. -Julia Stiles

If I get a script that's set in the jungle it goes to the bottom of the pile because I don't think the playgrounds are going to be very good there! I'm really aware of how lucky I am but I have the kind of job where I can bring my child to work. -Kate Beckinsale

I think it's still hard for me to turn down work if it's really good because for so many years I was so desperate to get a job and couldn't and so it's kind of an anathema for me to turn down work. -Matt Damon

Before, being a model, it was just a job, and I was making fun of it. But today, I take my career more seriously. The fact that a reader may buy an Armani item because she'd seen it on me in a magazine is very important to me. So much so that I intend to launch my own label. -Milla Jovovich

I love what I do for a living, it's the greatest job in the world, but you have to survive an awful lot of attention that you don't truly deserve and you have to live up to your professional responsibilities and I'm always trying to balance that with what is really important. -Tom Hanks

It's a miracle to be an actor and to know that you have a job to go to a year from now is a rare thing, so I think peace of mind and financial stability come with that. Hopefully I'm a little wiser and have a little more perspective in my life than I did then. -Debra Messing

I'm in this position where I can afford to wait, I'm lucky enough to be financially secure to not have to do anything that's thrown at me. You know the next couple of jobs are going to be pretty crucial in terms of how you're perceived by people. So I'm just waiting. -Dominic Monaghan

I think I'm a really good partner and very sensitive to the other person's feelings. I want somebody else to be comfortable, to understand about my job, and if they want to come on a set and see me work, they always can. -Franka Potente

I was little there were times I wanted my parents to be normal. I wanted them to have a religion. I wanted them to have a job, like the parents of every other kid I went to school with. -Gael Garcia Bernal

You are the only person who can sell you, so you do spend a lot of time in your job by yourself everyday. -Jennifer Love Hewitt

I am not thinking that because people say I am great that I really am great. I am just doing a job, just like everybody else. The only difference is that a lot more people see what I do. -Oded Fehr

The only thing I think I can be accused of about paparazzi is being really naive. I didn't think about it coming along with the job and I never, during my three years at drama school, fantasized about one bit of it. -Paul Bettany

Up until like five seconds ago, I just took what jobs came along. -Paul Bettany

I remember going to my school careers advisor and asked about jobs that required scuba divers. It was a phase. -Paul Putner

I lost that excitement I had when I first started out. It was all about the need to just get a job, and so I found the joy again when I was writing Deuce Bigelow. I was laughing so hard and along with my writing partner at the time, simply laughing until we cried. -Rob Schneider

As much as possible, I try to encourage people to use stunt men because that is really their job. -Sam Neill

I figured out, I guess, that the job just makes me happy if it's not number one. So if it all works, great. If it doesn't, I still go home, look at my kids, and I have a big smile on my face. -Thomas Kretschmann

I've learned to take jobs as an actress that is meaningful to me because I've never taken a job for the money. -Emmy Rossum

I know that I am my worst critic. I know that if I can walk away from the set at the end of the day and feel that I did the best job I could and feel proud, that's what will satisfy me. -Emmy Rossum

The hardest job an actor can do is all this pretend, all this screaming and being scared for your life. -Kirsten Dunst

There's a very specific thing you can do to get in magazines. I'm much happier to just show up and do the job. I haven't taken the active approach to making myself a star. I haven't been in a blockbuster. -Paul Rudd

At heart, this job is about continuing to make great theatre for the people of Sheffield – a city I've known and loved since childhood. -Samuel West

Modeling is basically 'Buy more stuff! Don't you want some more stuff? It will make you look ten years younger and men will like you!' If I'd wanted to be a salesperson, I would have got a job selling. -Uma Thurman

But one way or another, judges perform a very vital function in our society. They have a risky job and they are entitled to security. -Arlen Specter

My job is not to represent Washington to you, but to represent you to Washington. -Barack Obama

If we are to create tomorrow's jobs, we can't remain frozen in time in yesterday's tax system. -Bob Taft

Yet in this global economy, no jobs are safe. High-speed Internet connections and low-cost, skilled labor overseas are an explosive combination. -Bob Taft

The Bush Administration and the Congress have to stop ignoring this crisis in international trade. The longer we ignore it, the more American jobs will move overseas. It's just that simple. -Byron Dorgan

The voters reward good performance. So, I'm going to go out and focus, if I become the governor, to do the very best job I can as governor. The rest of it will take care of itself. -Dave Heineman

At a time when we are losing manufacturing jobs in this country, we should be doing everything we can to help our manufacturers stay competitive. They are the backbone of our economy. -Debbie Stabenow

Creating new jobs for Pennsylvanians continues to be my highest priority throughout the Commonwealth. -Ed Rendell

I'm floored that the House leadership would turn its back on job creation for Mississippians. -Haley Barbour

Our great history has been that people came to Michigan because you didn't have to have a college degree to get a good-paying job. Consequently, we have got a larger number of our population that right now are facing outsourcing, et cetera, without higher or advanced degrees. -Jennifer Granholm

Our workers comp debt is the Achilles heel of our state's economy, and I firmly believe that in order to create more good jobs in West Virginia this system must be fixed and it must be fixed now. We cannot afford to wait even one more minute. -Joe Manchin

Wherever there is one job on the verge of being lost, I will fight to save it. Wherever there is one company looking to grow in West Virginia, I will fight to make that growth a reality. -Joe Manchin

It's a combination of targeting higher paying jobs in these growth areas and fostering closer cooperation with higher education; a rising tide that lifts all boats. -John Hoeven

Ethanol reduces our dependence on foreign sources of oil and is an important weapon in the War on Terror. By investing in South Dakota's ethanol producers, we will strengthen our energy security and create new jobs. -John Thune

We must not condemn to frustration those whose job it is to protect us by failing to provide them with the necessary resources to meet the threats they face. -Joe Lieberman

Think about it: Every educated person is not rich, but almost every education person has a job and a way out of poverty. So education is a fundamental solution to poverty. -Kathleen Blanco

Each and every Notary Public plays a crucial role in combating identity theft. They serve as our front line of defense and the public is safer because of the job they do. -Ken Salazar

Anybody who has stood on the prairie in North Dakota has felt the force of the wind and knows that our state has an inexhaustible supply of wind power. The potential here to create jobs and draw millions of dollars in new investment to North Dakota is enormous. -Kent Conrad

The job of mayor and Governor is becoming more and more like the job of university president, which I used to be; it looks like you are in charge, but you are not. -Lamar Alexander

Managers, regardless of salary, should not be allowed to earn or use comp time. They are expected to work as many hours as needed to get the job done – especially at these salary levels. -Jodi Rell

We continue to fight for good jobs that pay well and jobs that last. Helping to get folks back to work is about helping them to regain their dignity and pride. That's what families care about. -Jodi Rell

Small businesses are the backbone of job creation in South Carolina, but we're not maximizing our potential when we've got what's effectively the highest income tax rate in the Southeast holding us back. -Mark Sanford

We simply have to become more competitive as a state if we're going to be successful in creating jobs, bringing capital investment and raising income levels here in South Carolina. -Mark Sanford

It is not government's job to mandate responsibility on our behalf. We have the intelligence and good sense to make wise consumption choices for ourselves and our children. It is up to us to do what is best for our health and our children's health. -Mike Crapo

And a special thank you to the citizens of Massachusetts: You are paying all the taxes, creating all the jobs, raising all the children. This government is yours. Thank you for letting me serve you. I love this job. -Mitt Romney

Our economy is on the move and we are creating thousands of new jobs, but we need to keep our foot on the gas pedal. -Mitt Romney

Reforming the way the state works with businesses and providing incentives for employers will help preserve and create new jobs in Massachusetts. -Mitt Romney

Furthermore, and a point I really want to make very strongly, is that this is the first Administration since Herbert Hoover not to create a net gain in jobs in the course of its Administration. -Paul Sarbanes

The foundation for future prosperity is built on the bedrock of good jobs and great schools. We are building a strong foundation one job at a time and one educated Texan at a time. -Rick Perry

What is the harm of doing the right thing? What is the harm of doing our job as legislators and making sure we do not stick the entire bankruptcy community with these provisions that do not make any sense? -Russ Feingold

Well, I think the president has clearly submitted us a tight budget, but it's what's called for if we're going to get spending under control and keep the economy moving in the right direction, with economic growth and job creation activity. -Thad Cochran

Well, I'm not saying that we're solving every problem or arresting every person that ought to be arrested and deported, but we're doing a better job than has been done in the past. -Thad Cochran

A great deal has been said about my commitment not to raise taxes. It's a core value – it's common sense – it's important to keeping and growing jobs – and it's mainstream! -Tim Pawlenty

What we are doing is satisfying the American public. That's our job. I always say we have to give most of the people what they want most of the time. That's what they expect from us. -William S. Paley

I'm an actor… I do a job and I go home. Why are you interested in me? You don't ask a truck driver about his job. -James Gandolfini

As a small child in England, I had this dream of going to Africa. We didn't have any money and I was a girl, so everyone except my mother laughed at it. When I left school, there was no money for me to go to university, so I went to secretarial college and got a job. -Jane Goodall

I think that when NASA works on a moon shot, they know too well that all of the people working on it must do their job at 110 percent. Sometimes they probably put in 18 hour days, but they're aiming for the moon, and that's what counts. -Marvin Hamlisch

I'm always in that mode – whenever I have a little free time, I'm always recording songs, writing, whatever I gotta do. It's like my job is my vacation. -Ludacris

Tax breaks can serve a vital role in keeping and bringing jobs to our state; however, without accountability, they are little more than loopholes at taxpayers' expense. -Jeanne Kohl-Welles

I can drink on the job if I want to. I can go on stage with a beer and it's OK. I can say whatever I want. It's a great job to have. -Rodney Carrington

My job is to give everyone a chance to catch their breath and step back from all this and get back to work. -Bob Schieffer

I'm an ordinary guy with an extraordinary job. -Bernie Mac

Our job is not to set things right but to see them right. -Eric Butterworth

A society in which vocation and job are separated for most people gradually creates an economy that is often devoid of spirit, one that frequently fills our pocketbooks at the cost of emptying our souls. -Sam Keen

We want work and we want honest jobs. Our minds and our hands will be our keep! -Viktor Yushchenko

I'm not sure I'm quite ready to have someone be a prospector of jobs for me, because I believe there's some kind of destiny involved with meeting people… some things are just meant to happen. -Audrey Tautou

My job in this life is to give people spiritual ecstasy through music. In my concerts people cry, laugh, dance. If they climaxed spiritually, I did my job. I did it decently and honestly. -Carlos Santana

It's funny. Of all the jobs I've been ambitious for, this is one that never crossed my mind. -Edmund S. Muskie

I can't sit around having coffee. I have all these appointments, and a lot of my friends sit around having coffee talking about the jobs they didn't get. -Eva Marie Saint

When a man is shooting a handgun, it's just like he is shooting because that's his job, and he has no other choice. It's no good. When a girl is shooting a handgun, it's really something. -Hayao Miyazaki

As it has been told to me, my Dad had some kind of deal with Dick Clark. But when we got here, that fell through. So we were out here with no job, no furniture, no food. -Danny Bonaduce

Not to sound too pathetic, but there have been long stretches where I haven't been able to get a job. -David Caruso

But the truth is that critics are by definition critical. That's their job. -Frank Black

I've been told by doctors and surgeons that I have the energy of ten men who have normal jobs. -Gary Busey

I'm still a shy person. I've learned to put that aside on certain occasions. I have to. It's part of my job. -Alexis Bledel

I've always been terrified about being bored. I always think being bored is the worst thing. The only strategic decision I ever made as an actor was to try and make each job as different as possible. -Alfred Molina

Every job is different. I don't think that I've ever had that wonderful feeling when you've finished a job or where you feel like you've mastered it or sort of nailed it… You can never be satisfied. If you're satisfied, it's time to retire. -Alfred Molina

I'm not qualified to do anything else. So there better be another job. I'm kind of stuck now. I'm enjoying my life and I'm enjoying my work, and I'm enjoying the fact that the work I'm doing is garnering some interest and that's great. I just hope that it continues. -Alfred Molina

My father was a waiter basically, and when I got my first professional job as an actor, I left a job that he found me for half the amount of money. So anyone would think that they're stupid, that that would be a stupid move. -Alfred Molina

As an active member of the Air Force, Army and Mine Warfare Caucuses, I meet with enlisted personnel and officers on a regular basis to learn more about their needs, both on the job and with their families. -Allen Boyd

The most that somebody in Mexico City will get paid for a job in construction is 100 pesos a day. -Alma Guillermoprieto

I know certainly, when one job draws to a close, that I feel I'm simply never going to work again. No one will ever want me for anything ever again. I think that's a vulnerable moment in every actor's life, and it happens every time you finish a film. -Anjelica Huston

People do more important jobs than acting in film that should be recognised, but for some reason it's big money, so people are elevated in status. If I was a bus driver, I'm sure you wouldn't be interviewing me. -Adam Garcia

I was studying to be an architect, I wasn't plotting to join the movies. Films were just another career option. I took acting up with the same schoolgirl enthusiasm I had for examinations. Acting is a job and I take it very seriously. -Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

There are countless studies on the negative spillover of job pressures on family life, but few on how job satisfaction enhances the quality of family life. -Albert Bandura

I've found that when you roll up your sleeves and join people in their daily work, they tend to open up quite a bit and let you know what they really think about the issues facing our country and what kind of job they think the government is doing. -Bob Beauprez

Americans are paying for our lack of an energy policy with their jobs and out of their pocketbooks. -Bob Beauprez

I always knew I'd be in music in some sort of capacity. I didn't know if I'd be successful at it, but I knew I'd be doing something in it. Maybe get a job in a record store. Maybe even play in a band. I never got into this to be a star. -Bryan Adams

It was the desire to do the complete thing. I only took taking acting lessons because my whole thing, really, was to direct. But my first jobs were acting jobs. -James Coburn

First job I went out on in new York I got, and when I came back, the first job I went out on, I got. -James Coburn

I still have the desire to do the job of acting. It's just a matter of whether I'll be allowed to do the job of acting that remains to be seen. There are only so many brick walls that I'm willing to beat my head on. -Gary Coleman

If I said to most of the people who auditioned, 'Good job, awesome, well done,' it would have made me actually look and feel ridiculous. It's quite obvious most of the people who turned up for this audition were hopeless. -Simon Cowell

They say Rome wasn't built in a day, but I wasn't on that particular job. -Brian Clough

Odd, the years it took to learn one simple fact: that the prize just ahead, the next job, publication, love affair, marriage always seemed to hold the key to satisfaction but never, in the longer run, sufficed. -Carolyn Gold Heilbrun

You don't concentrate on risks. You concentrate on results. No risk is too great to prevent the necessary job from getting done. -Chuck Yeager

You can't get a job without experience and you can't get experience until you have a job. Once you solve that problem you are home free. -Jack Buck

Frankly I've never really subscribed to these adjectives tagging me as an 'icon', 'superstar', etc. I've always thought of myself as an actor doing his job to the best of his ability. -Amitabh Bachchan

The media is absolutely essential to the functioning of a democracy. It's not our job to cozy up to power. We're supposed to be the check and balance on government. -Amy Goodman

We have to protect all journalists, and journalists have to be allowed to do their jobs. -Amy Goodman

This Constitution does not reflect the thoughts, hopes and aspirations of ordinary people. It does nothing for jobs or economic growth and widens further still the democratic deficit. -Nigel Farage

The problem with the designated driver programme, it's not a desirable job. But if you ever get sucked into doing it, have fun with it. At then end of the night drop them off at the wrong house. -Jeff Bridges

If I had a normal job and had been moving up, I'd be management level now. -Lauren Graham

I want to do everything right now! This very minute. I am impatient, but yes I have goals. To be a real well-respected actress whom people know they can rely on to do a good job… whether they like me as a person or not! -Lynda Carter

Dreaming in public is an important part of our job description, as science writers, but there are bad dreams as well as good dreams. We're dreamers, you see, but we're also realists, of a sort. -William Gibson

I think that the game is the game. I think that expansion is good for the game because it gives more jobs to the people and more ballplayers can play, but I think the game is still the game. The ballplayers, they come into the game with one thing in mind – it's their job. -Tony Oliva

My job is to suggest and ratify and use any expertise that I might have gained over the 23 years in professional hockey to make our game a better game. -Bobby Hull

At the time, there were very few foreign names in the press and they were all factory workers. I thought I'd never get a job at a university with a foreign name. -Carl Rakosi

When a big company lays you off, they often give you a year's salary to 'go pursue a dream.' If you're stupid, you panic and get another job. If you're smart, you take the money and use the time to figure out what you want to do next. -Bruce Schneier

A politician will do anything to keep his job – even become a patriot. -William Randolph

When people lack jobs, opportunity, and ownership of property they have little or no stake in their communities. -Jack Kemp

The paradigm of competition is a race: by rewarding the winner, we encourage everyone to run faster. When capitalism really works this way, it does a good job; but its defenders are wrong in assuming it always works this way. -Richard Stallman

Recession is when a neighbor loses his job. Depression is when you lose yours. -Ronald Reagan

The thought of being President frightens me and I do not think I want the job. -Ronald Reagan

Our life is half natural and half technological. Half-and-half is good. You cannot deny that high-tech is progress. We need it for jobs. Yet if you make only high-tech, you make war. So we must have a strong human element to keep modesty and natural life. -Nam June Paik

I think we did a great job of putting together a program that would have made good e-books available had people been buying e-books in any real numbers. -Thomas Perry

You can think about your career or you can think about your job. I like to think about my job. -Liev Schreiber

If I'm doing my job as an actor, the audience knows everything I know about the character. -Liev Schreiber

I'm into being a dad, that's where my focus is most of the time. I'm an actor that's my job, but it's not my life. I have a lot of other interests too. -Paul Walker

Someday perhaps I'll have to get a grownup job… but for now I'm having too much fun being a reporter. -Andrea Mitchell

The writer who can't do his job looks to his editor to do it for him, though he won't dream of sharing his royalties with that editor. -Alfred A. Knopf

It's an ear job, not an eye job. -Donald T. Regan

When I finished my term, I thought about running for governor then but decided not to because, frankly, I didn't think I was ready. I wasn't comfortable that I was prepared to do the job. -Ben Chandler

I don't work a five-day week as a rule, and I've managed to fill that time up. It hasn't been that hard. I volunteer at school. I'm working because I love it. Yet, I don't not envy women who have a stay-at-home job, because you miss stuff. -Deidre Hall

A good band is like a team. You want to have the right balance. It's not always the best people you need, but the right ones for the job. -Ronnie Hawkins

You don't have to buy from anyone. You don't have to work at any particular job. You don't have to participate in any given relationship. You can choose. -Harry Browne

I don't care about the rules. In fact, if I don't break the rules at least 10 times in every song then I'm not doing my job properly. -Jeff Beck

I've had two callers ask, 'Did you ever work for someone who is poorer than you are?' Their idea is it takes a rich person to give you a job because jobs are something that are given to you, an inferior, from on high. -John Hall

Taking Big Bird away from our five year olds, lunch money away from our ten year olds, job training programs away from our fifteen year olds, and college loans away from our twenty year olds is a disgrace. -John Murray

Writing is a lonely job unless you're a drinker, in which case you always have a friend within reach. -Emilio Estevez

I enjoyed the crew. The best part about 'The X-Files' has been the crew. This crew is an exceptional family and to go to work with a bunch of people that you really like is great. They're all the best of the best and they really try to do the best job they can. I'll miss that. -Robert Patrick

I do a job I really, really love and I kind of have fun with. People think you can't be grown up unless you're moaning about your job. -Robert Smith

A guy gave me a job at an information booth – no questions asked. -Jay London

Every artist seems to me to have the job of bearing witness to the world we live in. To some extent I think of all of us as artists, because we have voices and we are each of us unique. -Jane Rule

We can't be guided – because we're so far from it. We've so destroyed it. We're so far from that that we can't use it. I mean, Jim Bakker heard from God. What a good job he did! -Susan Powter

I've never been in this business for the recognition or the awards. I just want to do good work, grab a decent paycheck, and move onto the next job. -William Petersen

What career? A man's got a body of film of about four movies in about 10 years or something. I do it because I think I can do a good job of something and I'll enjoy it, do it, and sort of vanish. I don't want to be an actor for hire. -Paul Hogan

Lots of people want to have written; they don't want to write. In other words, they want to see their name on the front cover of a book and their grinning picture on the back. But this is what comes at the end of a job, not at the beginning. -Elizabeth George

It is the job of the novelist to touch the reader. -Elizabeth George

I firmly believe that the best way to stimulate our economy and create jobs is to let hard-working Americans keep more of their money – after all, the money belongs to them, not to Washington. -Rob Bishop

Film is a dramatised reality and it is the director's job to make it appear real… an audience should not be conscious of technique. -David Lean

Happiness is an inside job. -William Arthur Ward

This applies to many film jobs, not just editing: half the job is doing the job, and the other half is finding ways to get along with people and tuning yourself in to the delicacy of the situation. -Walter Murch

I remember growing up thinking that astronauts and their job was the coolest thing you could possibly do… But I absolutely couldn't identify with the people who were astronauts. I thought they were movie stars. -David M. Brown

Even during my youth, I can recall very few black people living on any kind of public assistance. People were working, doing some kind of job that was useful to the community. -Ed Smith

No individual has a vested right to a job when that individual fails to perform adequately. -James E. Rogers

I'm not going away. I'll still be very much involved in the team but not with the same number of hours. I need to move over and allow the people who are really doing the job the space to do so. -Jackie Stewart

A job is a very healthy thing to do. -David Soul

People thought me a bit strange at first; a blond haired, blue-eyed Norwegian who sang Mexican folk songs, but I used it to my advantage and got a job. And so the music became my ticket to education. -David Soul

That's one of those things that will really hurt me personally, if I label a character or think about what it might do if it were to do well. I just try to do a good job with it. -Luke Wilson

If you look at the data, the inner city that was the riot zone lost 55,000 jobs in the ten years from 1992 to 2002, instead of gaining a surplus of 50,000. -Tom Hayden

You can't do things for money. You just can't act them. There's gotta be something about the script that you really want to do. I wouldn't do a job if I didn't think I could do the best work I possibly could. -Tom Wilkinson

My whole deal when I do accents or dialects is I gotta fool the locals. If I fool the locals then I've done my job. -Brion James

I couldn't say no to jobs and I couldn't say no to drugs. I'd get high from a movie, I'd be somebody else because I didn't particularly like me, so long as I had a script in my hand, I was okay. As soon as the movie was over, I didn't know what to do. -Brion James

Asked at the hearing why she hadn't pressed the FBI more closely about what it knew, or didn't know, about domestic terrorist threats, Rice acted as though the question was an odd one: it wasn't her job. Well, in retrospect, it was and now certainly is. -Howard Fineman

My job is to interpret the law based on how the legislature and the court has done it and then, of course, to use our system of justice to develop some new legal tools and new concepts. -Bill Scott

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

It's good to go out and entertain these people, and you've got them on the edge of their seat, they're standing up. Then you know that you've done your job, you've entertained them. My way of entertaining them is going out and wrestling. Everyone's got their different ways. -Owen Hart

It's a tough job to tell a story when the audience already knows the ending, and the ending is bleak. -Walter Jon Williams

I don't think I've found the perfect job for me, but I know what I like, so that's halfway there, right? -Colleen Haskell

I wish I knew what was next. I got this movie without planning to. I'm really excited to be continuing in film because it's a great job but I have my portfolio and resume for any other opportunity. -Colleen Haskell

This is a job and Survivor is a game show. So, this is something to take seriously and work really hard at. -Colleen Haskell

I'm an actor. I love to act. That's my job. I'll leave the politicking to others. -Jimmy Smits

I would say to my colleague that the misery index, inflation and unemployment, when added together is the lowest it has been in the last series of Presidents, even going back to Jimmy Carter. So I think the Bush administration is doing a good job. -Cliff Stearns

My first job on 2001 was to make all of the HAL readouts: the 16 screens that surround HAL's eyes. -Douglas Trumbull

But it's true, it's nothing new that decisions about what movies are to be made, and how they're to be made, and who's to be hired to do what, and whether you hire somebody to do their job, or whether you hire somebody to fill a position and you tell them what to do. -Jeffrey Jones

I got a phone call from Douglas Campbell and from Jerome Guthrie, who offered me a job out of the blue. -Jeffrey Jones

I guess my tendency is to think essentially that the new wrinkles won't do the job if the old major idea didn't, and so you have to try something different. Then maybe they can all be combined in some coherent piece. -Robert Nozick

Could I have walked out then? If I had, Terry wouldn't have accepted the job. -Bryan Robson

The biggest hurdle to writing Fargo Rock City was that I couldn't afford a home computer – I had to get a new job so I could buy a computer. It could all change though. In five years, I could be back at some daily newspaper, which wouldn't be so bad. -Chuck Klosterman

It didn't seem remotely possible. I had no idea how people got those jobs, I didn't know what the steps were, it never even dawned on me. It seemed so outside the realm of possibility. -Chuck Klosterman

In Fargo, they say, well, that's a job. How well do you get paid? For example, for this book I was written about in Entertainment Weekly, and it was kind of cool because my mom asked me if Entertainment Weekly was a magazine or a newspaper. -Chuck Klosterman

You know, you have to put bread on the table. So you thank God you got the job. -Gavin MacLeod

It's taken me longer still to realize what a short span there is between those life experiences and the rest of your life. That's a job for the people who lived through it. -Jeremy Northam

If you want to get an education in how to get a story and how to survive, then get a street reporter job in New York City. -John Tesh

None of those jobs were high-profile, but once I was on ET, people then began to associate me with that show. So, that is the thing that many people know me for. When in effect, that was the end of my television career. -John Tesh

I always wanted to be a full-time musician. Every television job I had was a means to buy a grand piano, or to put in a recording studio, or something like that. -John Tesh

Since the days of slavery, if you were a good singer or dancer, it was your job to perform for the master after dinner. -Spike Lee

I love the first two X-Men movies because I thought that Bryan Singer did such a great job. He elevated that whole genre. He's a very talented director. -Famke Janssen

I had a bonding problem when I went off and boxed for five years. I was over in Europe and Asia fighting because I wanted to do something different; I was tired of acting. But the thing is, when I was done doing that, I couldn't get a job. -Mickey Rourke

As a young man, every bone in my body wanted to pick up a machine gun and kill Germans. And yet I had absolutely no reason to do so. Certainly nobody invited me to do the job. But that's what I felt that I was trained to do. Now no part of my upbringing was militaristic. -Pete Townshend

Baseball is just my job. -Barry Bonds

With millions of family wage manufacturing jobs lost since 2001, we need an energy bill that takes bold action to tap into American ingenuity in order to lead the world in new clean energy technology, rather than playing catch-up to the Japanese, Danish, and Germans. -Jay Inslee

The fact is that we cannot drill our way to independence. We cannot drill our way to freedom, and we cannot drill our way to create jobs in this country. -Jay Inslee

So we are now still dependent on foreign oil, have a problem with global warming, and are losing jobs rapidly to the Japanese in fuel-efficient vehicles as a result of that very shortsighted progress. -Jay Inslee

The 1st Congressional District contains almost half of the biotech and biomedical companies in Washington, and my job often allows me to meet the people responsible for this exciting research. -Jay Inslee

Investing in industries and technology for the 21st century generates high-skilled, high-wage jobs for industries of the future. -Jay Inslee

My craziest ambition is to take John Madden's job and salary. -Michael Strahan

If we deliver on those promises, we'll have done our job, and we did it with PSOne, and we certainly did it with PS2, and we are about to do it very rapidly with PSP. This is a whole new business for us, in terms of the handheld market, and we're going about it the right way. -Ian Jackson

It's not what my job is about. I'm not out to make a political statement. I want to stand for something, but more by example. -Lauren Bush

That was kind of scary. You got the sense as a little kid that you might be at risk now, and then you're like, 'Why are we at risk? It's because my grandfather is in charge of all of this.' You can't really realize the magnitude of a job like that when you are eight. -Lauren Bush

You just need to be honest with how you're feeling. But, a lot of women are afraid of it because they think, 'Oh, they are going to take my baby away. They're gonna call me incompetent. I'm going to lose my job. I've got to be tough, it's a man's world.' -Marie Osmond

My job is to come up with something that you like and you agree with that you would play wholeheartedly. If we disagree, I may not be doing my job correctly. -Harold Ramis

I know why most people never get rich. They put the money ahead of the job. If you just think of the job, the money will automatically follow. This never fails. -Hedy Lamarr

Being a secretary was considered a very good job in those days. -Brenda Blethyn

One of the main things I do is focus on ideas and what stories we decide to tell, but probably the biggest part of my job I'd say is working on the storyboards. -Craig McCracken

The storyboard artists job is to plan out shot for shot the whole show, write all the dialog, and decide the mood, action, jokes, pacing, etc of every scene. -Craig McCracken

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

A libertarian presidential candidate isn't going to win anyway, so he can afford to say that all taxation is theft, and it isn't the job of a libertarian presidential candidate to cook up new ways to commit theft. -L. Neil Smith

The fact is that surveys which media people openly admit to show that fewer than twelve percent of their customers believe they're doing a good job, while the average profit margin in television is in the neighborhood of eighty percent. -L. Neil Smith

Others, amounting to four novels and a mess of short stories which I did not think worth preserving, I have done my best to eliminate from the record by refusing all requests for permission to reprint them, and I hope I have done a good job of making them hard to unearth. -Leslie Charteris

After seven years of writing – and working many jobs to support my family – I finally got published. -Lloyd Alexander

I love what I do, I love my job. -Pharrell Williams

You don't think it was because a white man wrote it, a black man wrote it, a green man wrote it. What – doesn't make a difference! Doesn't make a difference. I think he did a good job. -Cab Calloway

The only credit I can give them. They synchronize wonderful. That's all. They synchronize very – you would have thought that they were actually acting, but they were synching all the time, and that's a rough job. -Cab Calloway

We have to be a state where business is welcome and jobs are created. We have to demand value for what is spent and we need to continue to resist a lottery. -Jesse Helms

As busy as I claim to be, I've still got the greatest job in the world. -Peter Criss

I mean, if somebody said to me, junior year of college, you can go anywhere, your old man's paying for it, I'd have been gone in a flash. But I had to work. Every summer my mother would say, 'Get that job and hold on to it until August 30.' -Chris Matthews

There is a considerable amount of manipulation in the printmaking from the straight photograph to the finished print. If I do my job correctly that shouldn't be visible at all, it should be transparent. -John Sexton

When I teach and meet a class for the first time, you realize that there are people there that have exceptional abilities or have the potential to do exceptional things and you never know who those people are. My job is to provide the best information I can. -John Sexton

We're all in the service business. If you hire me to do a job I expect everybody else to be where I am. A little bit of crazy is good. It keeps things – balanced. -Nia Long

Being away from her is torturous and I'd much prefer to be with her. So I just try to get out of here as soon as I can. I make sure I do my job real well and fast. -Richard Dean Anderson

I've been working with them for a couple years and a couple of projects. Essentially Robert F. Kennedy Jr., is the chief litigator for this corporation, this Alliance, and their job is to prosecute corporate polluters of the great bodies of water in North America. -Richard Dean Anderson

I think I would have been so much in awe of the movie set, the people and what everybody's job was, that I don't know if I would be able to concentrate on the character. -Daisy Fuentes

Criticism really used to hurt me. Most of these critics are usually frustrated artists, and they criticise other people's art because they can't do it themselves. It's a really disgusting job. They must feel horrible inside. -Rosanna Arquette

Americans are so dedicated to their jobs. -Jamelia

Singing as a full-time job was not something I had given a lot of thought to and I had no clear notion of the money to be made in it. -Charley Pride

I've actually been turned down for jobs because I was in Playboy. -Karen McDougal

Whether we like it or not, men have more of the offices, more of the higher jobs, more of the seats in Congress. Men need to re-examine what their power is. We need to understand how to use it. -James Hillman

My biggest accomplishment was playing 'Lark' on the daytime drama Port Charles because it was the most regular acting job I have had, and I had to step in and fill someone else's shoes. -Amy Weber

I'll look and pick the best, and the one who can do the best job for the party. -John Dingell

If you put this in the context of Detroit in '64 or '65, the economy was booming. Everybody had jobs and there was a whole nightclub culture where bands could work. -Wayne Kramer

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

I would argue that's because we had a bunch of smart people running around here. They were coming in and working very hard and many of them had left jobs in which they made significantly more money. -John Hickenlooper

My job was to produce plutonium that was used for atomic bomb. -Mordechai Vanunu

And I also take photos of hydrogen bomb, from another part of the building. It was not part of my job, but I succeeded to go and take photos of the hydrogen bomb. -Mordechai Vanunu

Yeah, for some reason parrots have to bite me. That's their job. I don't know why that is. They've nearly torn my nose off. I've had some really bad parrot bites. -Steve Irwin

Moreover, statistics can be deceiving: the growth of jobs in the US in the 90s was due to many part-time jobs, with no benefits and generally low pay. -David Korten

Let's talk about the Gas Company because this is my favorite job. -Minoru Yamasaki

Of course, we also have the responsibility to win games and the difficulty in the job is to combine both. -Arsene Wenger

The first job I had with the Smithsonian was as a field researcher among African American communities in Southwest Louisiana and Arkansas for the festival. -Bernice Johnson Reagon

I can't think of any other job in journalism where the newsmakers come to you. -Bob Schieffer

We now assume that when people turn on the evening news, they basically already know what the news is. They've heard it on the radio. They've seen it on the Internet. They've seen it on one of the cable companies. So that makes our job a bit different. -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
