Simply cutting the taxes for America's wealthiest families is clearly not creating the needed new jobs, and that strategy is unlikely to succeed in the future. -Tim Johnson

I'm a promoter of the people for the people and by the people and my magic lies in my people ties. I'm a promoter of America. I'm American people. You know what I mean? So therefore, uh, do not send for who the bell tolls 'cause the bell tolls for thee. -Don King

What is a good performance? It lies in the hands and head of a performer… the shortest way between two people is not a straight line. -Earle Brown

Tax cuts are an investment in working families. -Tommy Thompson

Ensuring a bright future for all our children is the responsibility of the community, the schools, families and like it or not- politicians as well. -Michael N. Castle

Their families helped them realize that there was more out there for them. These students came to Delaware State because of its inexpensive tuition, closeness to home, and solid reputation. -Michael N. Castle

The good historian is like the giant of the fairy tale. He knows that wherever he catches the scent of human flesh, there his quarry lies. -Marc Bloch

Where he was, where his cells were, where his logistical channels were, how he communicated. Who his allies were. Who donated to them. I think it's fair to say the entire range of sources were brought to bear. -Michael Scheuer

I don't think Roger Dodger is really about men. I think it is more about relationships and about how you present yourself, not only to the opposite sex, but to yourself. What lies are you going to tell yourself in order to get through the day? -Jennifer Beals

Maybe come to think about it, that is the sign of an extrovert, in any event I have always from the earliest of ages found it difficult to wander into a restaurant on my own. -Roger Moore

If you take one rivet out of an airplane, it will be all right, it'll keep flying. You take another rivet out of the airplane and it still flies. So what the heck, let's take more rivets out of the airplane, and sooner or later, the airplane drops from the sky. -Ted Danson

I have had the unfortunate experience of having someone write an unauthorised biography of me. Half of it is lies and the other half is badly written. My feeling is that if I'm going to write my life story, I ought to have my life first. -Dawn French

If truth is the first victim of war, then read on – I've got some great lies for you this month. -Alan Gorrie

Dawn was written well before 9/11. People speak a lot today about the banality of evil, but not all evil is banal. Some of it is carefully structured and well-thought-out. That's where the real danger lies. -Alan Dean Foster

Politicians… talk in generalities and lies, and I think they've caused all our grief. They're so awful, they're really funny. I hate thinking this because my dad loved politics. -Paul Lynde

I'm just experimenting with every different type of music you can imagine and seeing where my voice lies and what sounds best. I think when I do finally do the album it will be very eclectic – just loads of different stuff on it. That's what I am hoping. -Charlotte Church

In working class districts, you had several families living together in the one house, and it was very difficult to get a house, because the politicians who controlled housing were doing so in a very discriminatory fashion. -John Hume

We can hope that men will understand that the interest of all are the same, that hope lies in cooperation. We can then perhaps keep PEACE. -Alva Myrdal

My actual personality probably lies someplace between the two. -Edie Falco

This big part flies off on the floor. The other part goes like this and lands in my foot! Standing up! It's standing in my foot! Right in the side of my foot. The flute glass. I think I'm like in one of my own pictures. -Danny DeVito

There aren't any rules, as far as anything-and that applies especially to writing songs, whatever gets the point across. So you're just kind of brought up to feel-in any field, if you say you can do it, do it. There it is. -Guy Clark

I say let's respond as best we can to the victims and their families. -William P. Leahy

The first principle of the market economy is that it is comprised of many small buyers and sellers, which implies a substantial degree of equity. Another fundamental market principle is that costs are internalized in the producer's price. -David Korten

I was much entertained last summer with a tame bat, which would take flies out of a person's hand. -Gilbert White

Its success lies in the fact that it's an insurance plan, not an investment plan or a welfare plan. -James Roosevelt

Because of the lack of education on AIDS, discrimination, fear, panic, and lies surrounded me. -Ryan White

At this time, my work on the SPS power supplies had just come to an end; I joined a study group on the pp project and an experimental team studying cooling in a small ring (ICE). -Simon van der Meer

My earliest influences were things I heard in my household. -Boz Scaggs

What is the use of theorizing as to wherein lies the charm that moves us? -Alfred de Vigny
