And then I met Jerry and he's such a creative fiction writer, and I don't know if there's ever been a team put together the way we are – where one person does the theological way out and suggestions, and the other person goes into the cave and does the fiction writing. -Tim LaHaye

Jerusalem Syndrome is actually a rare psychological condition that occurs to some visitors to the Middle East. They get to Israel and just snap. -Marc Maron

A nuclear weapon of some dimension, whether it's actually a nuclear weapon, or a dirty bomb, or some kind of radiological device. Yes, I think it's probably a near thing. -Michael Scheuer

Radical constructivism, thus, is radical because it breaks with convention and develops a theory of knowledge in which knowledge does not reflect an 'objective' ontological reality. -Paul Watzlawick

I want to describe the psychological state of the people in a certain city. -Orhan Pamuk

Most of our history in space has been communicated in terms of action – what people do, a chronological list of events which have transpired – as opposed to the human experience of having done those things. -Story Musgrave

I take it for granted that you do not wish to hear an echo from the pulpit nor from the theological class-room. -Asa Gray

Next it was found that it was physiologically and structurally the same in the plant, that it was the living part of the plant, that which manifested the life and did the work in vegetable as well as in animal organisms. -Asa Gray

This substance, which is manifold in its forms and protean in its transformations, has, in its state of living matter, one physiological name which has become familiar, that of protoplasm. -Asa Gray

I think people have to set up little battles. They have to demonize people whom they disagree with or feel threatened by. But it's the ideological framing of the debate that scares me. -Barbara Kruger

My mother's incredibly giving, almost too giving at times. And, my dad is a real logical person. He's got logic for every situation. They've been married for 24 years, so there was that stability, also. I really learned to think on my own at a very young age. -Brian Austin Green

I think the '60s were an extraordinary time. I feel bad for the kids today who missed this wonderful confluence, which was simultaneously a confluence of the global and the mythological. -Peter Coyote

It may be far in the future, but there's some kind of logical way to get from where we are to where the science fiction is. -Elizabeth Moon

Pleasure becomes a value, a teleological end in itself. It's probably more Western than U.S. per se. -David Foster Wallace

In addition to the decline in competition, American politics today is characterized by a growing ideological polarization between the two major political parties. -Thomas E. Mann

With the parties at virtual parity and the ideological gulf between them never greater, the stakes of majority control of Congress are extremely high. -Thomas E. Mann

Have you ever found any logical reason why mutual promises are sufficient consideration for one another (like the two lean horses of a Calcutta hack who can only just stand together)? I have not. -Frederick Pollock

He's psychologically damaged, I suppose, if you stand back and look objectively at him, but then, who isn't? -Paul Darrow

On the whole, the psychological work of the last quarter of the nineteenth century emphasized the study of consciousness to the neglect of the total life of intellect and character. -Edward Thorndike

My father was a soil scientist with the Geological Survey. -Jim Fowler

Our challenge for the future is that we realize we are very much a part of the earth's ecosystem, and we must learn to respect and live according to the basic biological laws of nature. -Jim Fowler

In Darwin's time all of biology was a black box: not only the cell, or the eye, or digestion, or immunity, but every biological structure and function because, ultimately, no one could explain how biological processes occurred. -Michael Behe

In many biological structures proteins are simply components of larger molecular machines. -Michael Behe

It was a shock to people of the nineteenth century when they discovered, from observations science had made, that many features of the biological world could be ascribed to the elegant principle of natural selection. -Michael Behe

Since natural selection requires a function to select, an irreducibly complex biological system, if there is such a thing, would have to arise as an integrated unit for natural selection to have anything to act on. -Michael Behe

You can love someone like your son, even if he's not your biological son, and you can love someone like your father, even if he's not your biological father. -Oliver Hudson

Advertisers are very wary of ideological media. -Paul Weyrich

The powers, aspirations, and mission of man are such as to raise the study of his origin and nature, inevitably and by the very necessity of the case, from the mere physiological to the psychological stage of scientific operations. -Richard Owen

Space exploration is important research to our economic and national defense, and America's space program is a symbol of our success as a scientifically and technologically advanced nation. -Randy Forbes

This is the front edge of the spiritual, psychological movement and is where the tools of psychology have finally come together to create a mass healing. I think spiritual psychology is the next wave. -Kenny Loggins

The sexual deviance – I'd be lying if I said I didn't miss that; but we do have hints of it but in a more psychological way and therefore more human way, arguably. Or certainly to the extent that the animated series takes that sexuality. -Marton Csokas

Oddly my name has been no professional help at all! It seems to have made no difference. I admire him hugely, both for his benevolence and his enormous psychological perception. -Joanna Trollope

Finally, the ecological health of the Mississippi River and its economic importance to the many people that make their living or seek their recreation is based on a healthy river system. -Ron Kind

You have to go to where you can make money, and you see in the service area, in the technological area, those are the areas where we're going to create jobs. -Al D'Amato

It reflects a prevailing myth that production technology is no more amenable to human judgment or social interests than the laws of thermodynamics, atomic structure or biological inheritance. -Barry Commoner

The logical thing is to implement the Arab Defense Agreement. -Bashar al-Assad

Sure, the comedians who swear or use scatological humor can get laughs, but they're uncomfortable laughs. -John Ratzenberger

History is malleable. A new cache of diaries can shed new light, and archeological evidence can challenge our popular assumptions. -Ken Burns

Advances have fallen, generally, for everything except the biggest potential bestsellers. Given all the changes, both economic and technological, SF hasn't done too badly. -Alan Dean Foster

If politics and business fail us, of course the military will be called in. In the developing world, the massive and repeated ecological disasters are quite commonly met by the military. -Bruce Sterling

There's no question that California, in the last three or four years, has been privileged to add disproportionately to the economic growth of America, and to contribute to its technological productivity. -Gray Davis

We like reactions – a reaction is walking out on us, a reaction is throwing tomatoes at the stage, that's a healthy psychological reaction. -Alice Cooper

Well, what I tried to do is simply to get out on the land. And when I came to Washington, I think one of the mistakes we made early on was kind of having an ideological dispute up in the Congress. -Bruce Babbitt

Eating disorders can have serious medical and psychological consequences which, left unchecked, can kill. Parents should address this issue and ask their children to discuss how they feel about themselves. -Tipper Gore

The Occultists, however, know that the traditions of Esoteric Philosophy must be the right ones, simply because they are the most logical, and reconcile every difficulty. -Helena Blavatsky

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

Technological advances could allow us to see more clearly into our own lives. -Kevin Kelly

The hardship of living in a refugee camp made me psychologically strong. -Philip Emeagwali

Of course, the psychological part, the tactics, is very important. -Sergei Bubka

One can't live mindfully without being enmeshed in psychological processes that are around us. -Philip Zimbardo

That it is logical, fair and reasonable to maintain the purchasing power of an hour's work in terms of goods and services the employee must purchase in his daily living. -Charles E. Wilson

If we strike a line to the N.W. from Sydney to Wellington Valley, we shall find that little change takes place in the geological features of the country. -Charles Sturt

The fact that tradition hinders the individual savage from thinking logically by no means proves that he cannot think logically. -James Mark Baldwin

I was trained as a neurologist, and then I went into the theater, and if you're brought up to think of yourself as a biological scientist of some sort, pretty well everything else seems frivolous by comparison. -Jonathan Miller

Well, the big products in electronics in the '50s were radio and television. The first big computers were just beginning to come in and represented the most logical market for us to work in. -Jack Kilby

What the public needs to understand is that these new technologies, especially in recombinant DNA technology, allow scientists to bypass biological boundaries altogether. -Jeremy Rifkin

Well, I mean she's of a certain biological age but she didn't have to go around with fat patches and stuff. -Stockard Channing

I think her friends were worried that the bulimia might come back, about some psychological slide, and she was given breathing space to some extent by the media as much as she ever has been. -Anthony Holden

But with the Industrial Revolution and introduction of various industrial techniques for purifying sugar, we have a situation in which what we are consuming is not good nutritionally or ecologically. -Marvin Harris

No one has to learn to spell to talk, right? You see a little kid holding a conversation with an adult. He probably doesn't know the words he's saying, but he knows where to fit them to make what he's thinking logical to what you're saying. -Ornette Coleman

That's why I wrote this book: to show how these people can imbue us with hope. I read somewhere that when a person takes part in community action, his health improves. Something happens to him or to her biologically. It's like a tonic. -Studs Terkel

There is a certain element of complementarity between men and women that is biological by nature. -Jack Kingston

If we change the definition of marriage to be more inclusive, then it is logical to argue that we should broaden the definition so that won't exclude anyone. -Jack Kingston

The culture is going into a psychological depression. We are concerned about our place in the world, about being competitive: Will my children have as much as I have? Will I ever own my own home? How can I pay for a new car? Are immigrants taking away my white world? -James Hillman

Any horror element is as much psychological as special effects. -Christopher Eccleston

I think people have surgery for psychological reasons more than because of their looks. -Francesca Annis

The technological way of thinking has infected even ethics, which is supposed to be thinking about the good. -Leon Kass

They fail to recognize the broad biological principle that organic material is constantly being recycled. Everything has a time of being – a birth, a life span, and a death. -Dixie Lee Ray

Children between the ages of five to ten years are even more variable. They are going to vary from very high functioning, capable of doing normal school work, to nonverbal who have all kinds of neurological problems. -Temple Grandin

The professional study of economics has become ideological brainwashing. It is a defense of the excesses of the capitalist system. -David Korten

One way we can enliven the imagination is to push it toward the illogical. We're not scientists. We don't always have to make the logical, reasonable leap. -Stella Adler

This work made me more and more interested in biological matter, and I decided that I really wanted to work on the X-ray analysis of biological molecules. -Aaron Klug

The work requires a moderately large investment in technological and theoretical developments and long periods of time to carry them out, without the pressure to achieve quick or short term results. -Aaron Klug

And after about two years, I realized that creative writing was not going to help you ace those biological tests. So I switched over to journalism. I didn't graduate with honors, but I did graduate on time and with some doing. -Bob Schieffer

Think about technological float: it took centuries for the wheel to gain universal acceptance. Now any microchip device can be in use around the world in weeks. -Dee Hock

Our world has evolved and grown more technologically savvy. Lawmakers need to adjust to these changes. -Dennis Hastert

Unfortunately, opponents of online speech have decided to punish our changing technological world. -Dennis Hastert

The biological task of science is to provide the fully developed human individual with as perfect a means of orientating himself as possible. No other scientific ideal can be realised, and any other must be meaningless. -Ernst Mach

My fiction is reviewed by the mainstream press, by science fiction periodicals, romance magazines, small press publications and various other journals, including some usually devoted to archaeological and other science material. -Jean M. Auel

When we're talking about technology that involves weapons of mass destruction, nuclear, chemical or biological weapons, there has to be an element of preemption. -John Sununu

I think we were the first picture to cut on Final Cut Pro. So we were the guinea pigs, because we got a deal on the system. But with that comes all sorts of technological problems I couldn't begin to describe. -Griffin Dunne

These studies resulted eventually in a complete sequence analysis of the complex from several species, and in the atomic resolution structure of the F catalytic domain of the enzyme from bovine mitochondria, giving new insights into how ATP is made in the biological world. -John E. Walker

Species can be recognized by their morphological characteristics and songs. -Peter R. Grant

To summarize, the particular song a male sings, and the behavioral responses of females to song and morphological signals, are not genetically inherited in a fixed manner but are determined by learning early in life. -Peter R. Grant

In fact, I don't believe I'm guilty of any crimes, but I've always been drawn to and fascinated by physical, sexual and psychological change, and there's an erotic aspect to that. -Jock Sturges

I think eventually they're going to find out that MS is like 10 different things. I have a neurological disease something like MS, and it's MS, so let's take medicine for it. -Teri Garr

The theories of the major philosophers of the 18th century secular enlightenment were biblical and theological in spite of themselves. -M. H. Abrams

Because of the love affair between the American public and the stock market, it is possible for entrepreneurs, technological visionaries and inventors of every sort to get financing. -Ron Chernow

The resistance of policy-makers to intelligence is not just founded on an ideological presupposition. They distrust intelligence sources and intelligence officials because they don't understand what the real problems are. -Aldrich Ames

I think that there are empty ecological niches in the literary landscape crying to be filled and when a book more or less fills a niche it's seized on, even when it's a far from perfect fit. -Edmund White

No man wants to feel that he's there because of his woman's biological clock or because he's filling a job opening for husband or significant other. -George Weinberg

Terrorism is a psychological warfare. Terrorists try to manipulate us and change our behavior by creating fear, uncertainty, and division in society. -Patrick J. Kennedy

This time at Birmingham turned me into a general biologist, and ever since then I have always tried to take a biological approach to any research project that I have undertaken. -Paul Nurse

We were in the Arabian Desert for nine months. And I was having the time of my life. It could have been an archeological expedition, a military expedition. -Peter O'Toole

Cabin Fever was murder. There was a lot of psychological stress, like not knowing if we were going to finish the movie. The day we arrived to start rehearsals, our main investors pulled out. -Rider Strong

The purpose of this study is to offer a logical, practical, pragmatic proof of the existence of God from a purely scientific perspective. -John Clayton

Could the one whom Christians worship be merely a mythological creation, or is he real? These questions have exercised many great minds and have been the dominant issue in New Testament studies during this century. -John Clayton

Technological innovation is indeed important to economic growth and the enhancement of human possibilities. -Leon Kass

The amount of sophistication varies according to the quality of the medium, and to the state of the same medium at different times; it must be attributed in the best cases physiologically to the medium, intellectually to the control. -Oliver Joseph Lodge

We know that communication must be hampered, and its form largely determined, by the unconscious but inevitable influence of a transmitting mechanism, whether that be of a merely mechanical or of a physiological character. -Oliver Joseph Lodge

Technological discoveries are the spermatozoa of social change. -C. L. R. James

Each race (or variety) is characterized by a more or less distinct combination of inherited morphological, behavioral, physiological traits. -J. Philippe Rushton

Unless one is a religious fundamentalist and believes that man was created in the image and likeness of God, it is foolish to believe that human beings are exempt from biological classification and the laws of evolution that apply to all other life forms. -J. Philippe Rushton

The biological factors underlying race differences in sports have consequences for educational achievement, crime and sexual behavior. -J. Philippe Rushton

We establish no religion in this country, nor will we ever. But we poison our society when we remove its theological underpinnings. We court corruption when we leave society devoid of belief. -Jeff Miller

The scientific and technological discoveries that have made war so infinitely more terrible for us are part of the same process that has knit us all so much more closely together. -Lester B. Pearson

We in the industrialized world make a greater difference because our ecological footprint, our impact on the condition of the environment, is 40 to 50 times larger than that of people in the developing world. -Maurice Strong

We need what I have often called an ecological approach to the management of these resources and we do not have that now. We have the inertia of past habits, unsustainable habits. -Maurice Strong

For psychological purposes the most important differences in conation are those in virtue of which the object is revealed as sensed or perceived or imaged or remembered or thought. -Samuel Alexander

I had always intended to make a living out of playing blues. But I never admitted it to myself. I don't suppose I could have given a logical reason for it ever becoming possible to do so. -Alexis Korner

The thematic, psychological, and cultural concerns of a writer are more relevant than whatever literary mode he or she chooses to deal with in any given novel. -Norman Spinrad

Psychologically experienced consciousness is therefore no longer pure consciousness; construed Objectively in this way, consciousness itself becomes something transcendent, becomes an event in that spatial world which appears, by virtue of consciousness, to be transcendent. -Edmund Husserl

A standard international language should not only be simple, regular, and logical, but also rich and creative. -Edward Sapir

The spirit of logical analysis should in practice blend with the practical pressure for the adoption of some form of international language, but it should not allow itself to be stampeded by it. -Edward Sapir

Most of them are doomed to rapid extinction, but a few may make evolutionary inventions, such as physiological, ecological, or behavioral innovations that give these species improved competitive potential. -Ernst Mayr

The intellectually sophisticated person is indifferent to all genuine individuality, because relationships and reactions result from it which cannot be exhausted with logical operations. -Georg Simmel

The psychological basis of the metropolitan type of individuality consists in the intensification of nervous stimulation which results from the swift and uninterrupted change of outer and inner stimuli. -Georg Simmel

On the basis of biological, sociological, and historical knowledge, we should recognize that the individual self is subject to death or decay, but the sum total of individual achievement, for better or worse, lives on in the immortality of The Larger. -Hu Shih

We are of the opinion that an important and irreversible process is taking place among the white population. Just as with the blacks, the whites, too, are currently overcoming a psychological barrier. -Joe Slovo

The 12 years I was in Fleetwood Mac before were not particularly happy years. I was not in a very good place, psychologically, when I left. I didn't have a lot of confidence in what I was doing. -Lindsey Buckingham

Nevertheless, I consider OOP as an aspect of programming in the large; that is, as an aspect that logically follows programming in the small and requires sound knowledge of procedural programming. -Niklaus Wirth

I agree with Marjorie Rosen's good psychological analysis of my acting ability. -Pola Negri

I write with a mouse, because it has no psychological associations or memories or habits associated with it. -Fred Frith

A logical analysis of reflexive usages in French shows, however, that this simplicity is an illusion and that, so far from helping the foreigner, it is more calculated to bother him. -Edward Sapir

No important national language, at least in the Occidental world, has complete regularity of grammatical structure, nor is there a single logical category which is adequately and consistently handled in terms of linguistic symbolism. -Edward Sapir

The modern mind tends to be more and more critical and analytical in spirit, hence it must devise for itself an engine of expression which is logically defensible at every point and which tends to correspond to the rigorous spirit of modern science. -Edward Sapir

Not that I wish by any means to deny, that the mental life of individuals and peoples is also in conformity with law, as is the object of philosophical, philological, historical, moral, and social sciences to establish. -Hermann von Helmholtz

Indeed, this epistemological theory of the relation between theory and experiment differs sharply from the epistemological theory of naive falsificationism. -Imre Lakatos

Ancient metaphysics underwent many changes at the hands of medieval thinkers who brought it in line with the dominant religious and theological movements of their day. -Wilhelm Dilthey

To attempt this would be like seeing without eyes or directing the gaze of knowledge behind one's own eye. Modern science can acknowledge no other than this epistemological stand-point. -Wilhelm Dilthey

Child psychology and animal psychology are of relatively slight importance, as compared with the sciences which deal with the corresponding physiological problems of ontogeny and phylogeny. -Wilhelm Wundt

Physiological psychology is, therefore, first of all psychology. -Wilhelm Wundt

Physiological psychology, on the other hand, is competent to investigate the relations that hold between the processes of the physical and those of the mental life. -Wilhelm Wundt

The attitude of physiological psychology to sensations and feelings, considered as psychical elements, is, naturally, the attitude of psychology at large. -Wilhelm Wundt

The task of physiological psychology remains the same in the analysis of ideas that it was in the investigation of sensations: to act as mediator between the neighbouring sciences of physiology and psychology. -Wilhelm Wundt

I very much dislike writing about myself or my work, and when pressed for autobiographical material can only give a bare chronological outline which contains no pertinent facts. -Shirley Jackson

The scenarios of biological or chemical warfare painted in detail by the American media during the months after September 11 only betray the inability of the government to determine the magnitude of the danger. -Jurgen Habermas

Geological change usually takes thousands of years to happen but we are seeing the climate changing not just in our lifetimes but also year by year. -James Lovelock

It is women who bear the race in bloody agony. Suffering is a kind of horror. Blood is a kind of horror. Women are born with horror in their very bloodstream. It is a biological thing. -Bela Lugosi

A long apprenticeship is the most logical way to success. The only alternative is overnight stardom, but I can't give you a formula for that. -Chet Atkins

I think the one thing this picture shows that's new is the psychological disproportion of the kids' demands on the parents. Parents are often at fault, but the kids have some work to do, too. -James Dean

To me, acting is the most logical way for people's neuroses to manifest themselves, in this great need we all have to express ourselves. -James Dean

Socialism is nothing more nor less than the social, political and ideological system which breaks the fetters upon economic growth created under capitalism and opens the way to a new period of economic and social expansion on a much larger scale. -Earl Browder

The stage of the development of the productive forces determines the political and ideological superstructure of society which are crystallized into a system of social organization. -Earl Browder

In general, the philological movement opened up countless sources relevant to linguistic issues, treating them in quite a different spirit from traditional grammar; for instance, the study of inscriptions and their language. But not yet in the spirit of linguistics. -Ferdinand de Saussure

It is useful to the historian, among others, to be able to see the commonest forms of different phenomena, whether phonetic, morphological or other, and how language lives, carries on and changes over time. -Ferdinand de Saussure

Indeed, if a chief question does remain: how is the power to think possible? – The power to think right and left, before and without, with and above experience? then it does not take a deduction to prove the genealogical priority of language. -Johann Georg Hamann

The rest of my work, besides sketching and keeping a diary, which was the most troublesome of all, consisted in making geological and zoological collections. -John Hanning Speke

The world knows of a vast stock of epic material scattered up and down the nations; sometimes its artistic value is as extraordinary as its archaeological interest, but not always. -Lascelles Abercrombie

A theoretical grounding in agronomy must, therefore, include knowledge of biological laws. -Trofim Lysenko

Although Ronald Reagan was somebody I disagreed with on most ideological things, he was a friend of mine, and he was a very, very likable man. Ronald Reagan, for instance, was maybe more able to get the very rich to do the right thing sometimes. -Warren Beatty

It's just a logical guess that they are very very wise to put someone from the old series in it, and if you had to choose, it would be a very difficult decision. -Andreas Katsulas

We need the UN, to deal with the threats to our common security from nuclear, chemical and biological weapons, not only in the case of Iraq. They must be tackled by the international community together, by strengthening conventions, treaties and agreements. -Anna Lindh

My suggestion is that at each state the proper order of operation of the mind requires an overall grasp of what is generally known, not only in formal logical, mathematical terms, but also intuitively, in images, feelings, poetic usage of language, etc. -David Bohm

When people come to the show they think we are a legendary band because they hear us on Classic Rock radio all the time. It is psychological. That's okay – I'm down with that. -George Thorogood

And what classical music does best and must always do more, is to show this kind of transformation of moods, to show a very wide psychological voyage. And I think that's something that we as classical musicians have underestimated. -Michael Tilson Thomas

If we are able to get inside the music and inhabit it convincingly enough, it will cause everyone to find each other in this new psychological space. And that's most exciting. -Michael Tilson Thomas

All theological lore is becoming distasteful to me. -Wilfred Owen

But my problem with fantasy, and horror, and related genres, is that sometimes the problems are illogical. -Octavia E. Butler

At present, too much theological thinking is very human-centered. -John Polkinghorne

My exile was not only a physical one, motivated exclusively by political reasons; it was also a moral, social, ideological and sexual exile. -Juan Goytisolo

A new era in the physiological investigation of linguistic sounds was opened up by X-ray photography. -Roman Jakobson

Racists are irrational and illogical in their attempts to justify their prejudices. -Sargent Shriver

A major one which no one can overlook is technological and based on inventions and discoveries which have altered the whole basis of production and deeply affected social relations. -Emily Greene Balch

A theoretical system does not merely state facts which have been observed and that logically deducible relations to other facts which have also been observed. -Talcott Parsons

Special emphasis should be laid on this intimate interrelation of general statements about empirical fact with the logical elements and structure of theoretical systems. -Talcott Parsons

That is, a system starts with a group of interrelated propositions which involve reference to empirical observations within the logical framework of the propositions in question. -Talcott Parsons

Thus, in general, in the first instance, the direction of interest in empirical fact will be canalised by the logical structure of the theoretical system. -Talcott Parsons

Such manifestations I account as representing the creative leadership of the new forces of thought and appreciation which attend changes in technological pattern and therefore of the pattern of human relationships in society. -John Grierson

Of course, nobody would deny the importance of human beings for theological thinking, but the time span of history that theologians think about is a few thousand years of human culture rather than the fifteen billion years of the history of the universe. -John Polkinghorne

Theologians have a great problem because they're seeking to speak about God. Since God is the ground of everything that is, there's a sense in which every human inquiry is grist to the theological mill. Obviously, no theologian can know everything. -John Polkinghorne

I wasn't trying to work out my own ancestry. I was trying to get people to feel slavery. I was trying to get across the kind of emotional and psychological stones that slavery threw at people. -Octavia E. Butler

What I'm working on now – I'm back to fantasy, although considering that it's me, I'm turning it into a kind of science fantasy. It's a vampire story – but my vampires are biological vampires. They didn't become vampires because someone bit them; they were born that way. -Octavia E. Butler

Do we talk about the dignity of work? Do we give our students any reason for believing it is worthwhile to sacrifice for their work because such sacrifices improve the psychological and mental health of the person who makes them? -Sargent Shriver

The system becomes logically closed when each of the logical implications which can be derived from any one proposition within the system finds its statement in another proposition in the same system. -Talcott Parsons

That freedom that Picasso afforded himself, to be an artist in a huge number of ways, seems to be a huge psychological liberation. -Anish Kapoor

People don't realize that molecules themselves are somewhat hypothetical, and that their interactions are more so, and that the biological reactions are even more so. -Kary Mullis

I felt really sorry for Oliver Kahn. Up to that point he had made lots of saves for the German team. Of course he could have caught the ball but it just happened. It was bad luck. In that situation, you need to be very strong psychologically to carry on. -Angela Merkel

Literature is my life of course, but from an ontological point of view. From an existential point of view, I like being a teacher. -Antonio Tabucchi

I am Indian, and I'm proud of it. Indian life is mythologically rich and powerful. -Anish Kapoor

Alfred Nobel was much concerned, as are we all, with the tangible benefits we hope for and expect from physiological and medical research, and the Faculty of the Caroline Institute has ever been alert to recognize practical benefits. -Haldan Keffer Hartline

Coincidence is logical. -Johan Cruyff

Otherwise, we will not be able to defeat the U.S. imperialists who boast of their technological superiority. -Kim Il-sung

Then, I realized that there is an indigenous presence in the Solar System. It's us. So, then, I got to wondering what would happen if a more technologically advanced society moved next door to us, the way we moved next door to the American Indians. -Sarah Zettel

Those are the things that, in the wrong hands – and certainly in our war on terrorism we also must attack proliferation and those nations that proliferate with chemical, biological and nuclear type devices, because that can cause the most catastrophic results. -Hugh Shelton

The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is a unique and biologically special place that should be preserved. -Dan Lipinski

I hope that we can continue this cooperation on other critical issues related to America's future technological competitiveness. We must work together to encourage the creative talents that have made our country the world leader in technology. -Dan Lipinski

I learned a lot more about transgender people. It's not a choice, but a physiological condition that has to do with the size of the hypothalamus part of the brain. -Mercedes Ruehl

But the prospects of designing chemical plants for industrial scale chemical processes seemed far less interesting than the chemical events that occur in biological systems. -Paul Berg

That's a little homage in a way to that and also to create that sort of creepy atmosphere that Hitchcock did. Vertigo was one of his great movies that was shot right here in The City and it's about a woman and the psychological twists and so forth. -Philip Kaufman

The American people deserve truthfulness, not more political campaigning. The American people deserve a responsible government that seeks to address their needs, not more ideological dogma. -Jose Serrano

I suspect the psychological pressure associated with that crisis caused the first mental blackout I had ever suffered. It contributed to a deterioration in my health that later required the insertion of a heart pacemaker. -Kamisese Mara

All around us are the consequences of the most significant technological, and hence cultural, revolution in generations. -Lawrence Lessig

While they would have provided financial support if I had needed it, the greatest support my parents gave was emotional, psychological. -Judd Nelson

Evolution acts slowly. Our psychological characteristics today are those that promoted reproductive success in the ancestral environment. -Keith Henson

Moreover, the practical recommendations deduced from ecological principles threaten the vested interests of commerce; it is hardly surprising that the financial and political power created by these investments should be used sometimes to suppress environmental impact studies. -Garrett Hardin

But as population became denser, the natural chemical and biological recycling processes became overloaded, calling for a redefinition of property rights. -Garrett Hardin

But teleological considerations can lead no further than to a belief and a hope. They do not give certainty. -Christian Lous Lange

Internationalism is a community theory of society which is founded on economic, spiritual, and biological facts. It maintains that respect for a healthy development of human society and of world civilization requires that mankind be organized internationally. -Christian Lous Lange

The power of sound to put an audience in a certain psychological state is vastly undervalued. And the more you know about music and harmony, the more you can do with that. -Mike Figgis

I was trying to write an autobiography using prints and patterns that reference emotional, psychological, and personal development in my work, as a person growing up, figuring out who I was. I used fabrics to stand in for occurrences. -Jim Hodges

Landscape is a piece that is emotional and psychological. -Jim Hodges

Our musical alphabet is poor and illogical. -Edgard Varese

The USA experiences the crisis of ideological and moral values. -Vladimir Zhirinovsky

They do not say Roosevelt saved our system. They say he has given us a new one. That is logical. -John T. Flynn

There is nothing worth having that can be obtained by nuclear war – nothing material or ideological – no tradition that it can defend. It is utterly self-defeating. -George Wald

The logical man must either deny all miracles or none, and our American Indian myths and hero stories are perhaps, in themselves, quite as credible as those of the Hebrews of old. -Charles Eastman

Serious poetry deals with the fundamental conflicts that cannot be logically resolved: we can state the conflicts rationally, but reason does not relieve us of them. -Allen Tate

Other psychological theories say a good deal about compensation. -Allen Tate

Narcissism and the Confederate dead cannot be connected logically, or even historically; even were the connection an historical fact, they would not stand connected as art, for no one experiences raw history. -Allen Tate

Dramatic experience is not logical; it may be subdued to the kind of coherence that we indicate when we speak, in criticism, of form. -Allen Tate

A poem may be an instance of morality, of social conditions, of psychological history; it may instance all its qualities, but never one of them alone, nor any two or three; never less than all. -Allen Tate

Psychological factors are critical in supporting immune function. If you suppress this psychological support by telling someone he's condemned to die, your words alone will have condemned him. -Luc Montagnier

Almost every comedy you see is about people making all wrong choices and making all the errors of judgement possible. Good comedy is when it works on this scale. Because it is psychologically very real. -Colin Firth

The threat of terrorism is great and with today's porous borders, someone could bring a biological weapon into our country or sneak a dirty bomb across unmanned portions of our borders. -Bobby Jindal

It seems to me that good novels celebrate the mystery in ordinary life, and summing it all up in psychological terms strips the mystery away. -Anne Tyler

To me, Ennis stands for the conservative side of America. He's the biggest homophobe in the whole movie – culturally and psychologically – but by the time he admits his feelings, it's too late. -Ang Lee

In the same period, Polish literature also underwent some significant changes. From social-political literature, which had a great tradition and strong motivation to be that way, Polish literature changed its focus to a psychological rather than a social one. -Andrzej Wajda

And they will tell you unequivocally that if we have a chemical or biological attack or a nuclear attack anywhere in this country, they are unprepared to deal with it today, and that is of high urgency. -Warren Rudman

This implies that the laws governing organic cohesion, the organization leading from the part to the whole, represent a biological uncertainty, indeed an uncertainty of the first order. -Walter Rudolf Hess

The goal of physiological research is functional nature. -Walter Rudolf Hess

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

For better or worse, that is true with any new innovation, certainly any new technological innovation. There's many good things that come out of it, but also some bad things. All you can do is try to maximize the good stuff and minimize the bad stuff. -Steve Case

The last thing, and the only one that you cannot physically train for, is the psychological preparation. -Philippe Perrin

I think that witnessing ecological problems visible from space is one of the new and essential roles of astronauts. -Philippe Perrin

I continuously go further and further learning about my own limitations, my body limitation, psychological limitations. It's a way of life for me. -Ayrton Senna

George W. Bush and Tony Blair had to convince the world that Saddam Hussein represented an imminent threat. Tony Blair lied when he claimed that Iraq could launch a chemical or biological attack within 45 minutes. -Bianca Jagger

In other words, we are interested in the anatomical and mental characteristics of men living under the same biological, geographical, and social environment, and as determined by their past. -Franz Boas

You can't do psychological thrillers. There's no audience. I've heard this. I've heard this from studios. -Eriq La Salle

Traditional academic science describes human beings as highly developed animals and biological thinking machines. We appear to be Newtonian objects made of atoms, molecules, cells, tissues, and organs. -Stanislav Grof

Research challenges the materialistic understanding of death, according to which biological death represents the final end of existence and of all conscious activity. -Stanislav Grof

Dying before dying has two important consequences: It liberates the individual from the fear of death and influences the actual experience of dying at the time of biological demise. -Stanislav Grof

Ancient eschatological texts are actually maps of the inner territories of the psyche that seem to transcend race and culture and originate in the collective unconscious. -Stanislav Grof

Because of technological limits, there is a certain amount of food that we can produce per acre. If we were to have intensive greenhouse agriculture, we could have much higher production. -Ralph Merkle

As in any technological revolution, there will be winners and losers. On balance, everyone will come out ahead, although there will be particular companies that will not be able to cope with a new environment. -Ralph Merkle

I perceive two things in Scotland of the most fearful omen: ignorance of theological truth, and a readiness to pride themselves in and boast of it. -Edward Irving

In my case, I used the elements of these simple forms – square, cube, line and color – to produce logical systems. Most of these systems were finite; that is, they were complete using all possible variations. This kept them simple. -Sol LeWitt

I am extremely proud of my service with the government and my efforts to help safeguard public health and protect our country against the scourge of offensive biological warfare. -Steven Hatfill

But I am just as appalled that my experience, knowledge, dedication and service relative to defending the United States against biological warfare has been turned against me in connection with the search for the anthrax killer. -Steven Hatfill

As a scientist in the field of biological warfare defense, I have never had any reservations whatsoever about helping the anthrax investigation in any way that I could. -Steven Hatfill

As an undergraduate, I had an opportunity to go on a number of archeological digs. So I had experience excavating, digging up remains of ancient Indian villages in the Midwest and in the Southwest. -Donald Johanson

In our case, finding a Lucy is unique. No one will ever find another Lucy. You can't order one from a biological supply house. It's a unique discovery, a unique specimen. -Donald Johanson

I think because we could do it biologically and have our own child we decided to try this. -Cheryl Tiegs

You know, there's chronological age, there's biological age, and there's psychological age. Chronological age, there's nothing you can do about, which is I'm 52. You set that number aside. -Cheryl Tiegs

If you look at body fat, it seems to increase with age, even though your weight does not. That's a physiological fact of aging, they say. Heck it is. It is an adaptive effect of aging. -Kenneth H. Cooper

I see mysteries and complications wherever I look, and I have never met a steadily logical person. -Martha Gellhorn

St. Paul would say to the philosophers that God created man so that he would seek the Divine, try to attain the Divine. That is why all pre-Christian philosophy is theological at its summit. -Hans Urs von Balthasar

The work with which we embark on this first volume of a series of theological studies is a work with which the philosophical person does not begin, but rather concludes. -Hans Urs von Balthasar

Gamma was a logical progression after doing the Open Fire record. -Ronnie Montrose

Sometimes the person who is the most logical is the person whom we call insane. -Kevin Spacey

People are naming it the Third Wave, the Information Age, etc. but I would say those are basically technological descriptions, and this next shift is not about technology – although obviously it will be influenced and in some cases expressed by technologies. -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

There are psychological repercussions to illness and we need a little more help to get through the effects not only on the afflicted but on the family. And I think there's even a place for humor in that. -Alan Thicke

I hope that China will continue with space exploration. It would be logical to have international co-operation. I hope that it will come about and that I can be involved in it. -Leroy Chiao

Of course, you'll have to meet the physical and psychological demands. A space walk takes a lot of energy. -Leroy Chiao

I don't know if 1300 players could really participate in the selection of a commissioner, and I've never given it a great deal of thought. I think it's a logical point they could make, but it's only an academic one. -Pete Rozelle

For the first half of geological time our ancestors were bacteria. Most creatures still are bacteria, and each one of our trillions of cells is a colony of bacteria. -Richard Dawkins

Shirley Valentine is a beautiful character and so well written. What Shirley speaks and thinks is so logical. -Loretta Swit

Evolution has long been the target of illogical arguments that use presumption. -Marilyn vos Savant

The logical process will often be the safe one. I tend, when I'm given that choice, to go the way that's not safe. -Sting

Maybe the preoccupation with technological progress has overshadowed our concern with human progress. -Wynton Marsalis

The Vietnam memorial is a masterpiece. The names of the dead are listed there, chronologically. Just the names. -William Westmoreland

The simplest and most psychologically satisfying explanation of any observed phenomenon is that it happened that way because someone wanted it to happen that way. -Thomas Sowell

Culture is not a biologically transmitted complex. -Ruth Benedict

Many traditional religions foster attitudes that ought to have disappeared as biological understanding accumulated over the last century. -George C. Williams

I like New York because you're kind of forced to smell everybody else's funk. So it keeps you biologically attached to the world around you. -Jeffrey Wright

Every dogma, every philosophic or theological creed, was at its inception a statement in terms of the intellect of a certain inner experience. -Felix Adler

The poetry of this one is called philosophical, of that one philological, of a third rhetorical, and so on. Which is then the poetic poetry? -Karl Wilhelm Friedrich Schlegel

We might possess every technological resource… but if our language is inadequate, our vision remains formless, our thinking and feeling are still running in the old cycles, our process may be 'revolutionary' but not transformative. -Adrienne Rich

This merger is a logical next step that creates substantial value for customers and stockholders of both AT&T and BellSouth. It will benefit customers through new services and expanded service capabilities. -Edward Whitacre, Jr.

Their coverage on the Fox News Channel has been atrocious. The stuff that comes out of Sean Hannity's mouth has been infuriating. The stuff that Bill O'Reilly says has been illogical. You go up and down the schedule and it's insanity over there. The number of lies, perpetuated, promoted by Fox News is just shameful and it hurts everybody. -David Shuster

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

It is time… to end the long-standing and unproductive methodological debate over 'originalism' versus 'dynamism' or 'evolution' and focus instead on how, as a substantive matter, we should interpret the Constitution in the twenty-first century, and what it has to say on questions unimaginable to our eighteenth-century Framers. -Diane Wood

I've led a school whose faculty and students examine and discuss and debate every aspect of our law and legal system. And what I've learned most is that no one has a monopoly on truth or wisdom. I've learned that we make progress by listening to each other, across every apparent political or ideological divide. -Elena Kagan

But when it comes to writing the thing that I've sort of been thinking about lately, is why? You know, is it rational? Is it logical that anybody should be expected to be afraid of the work that they feel they were put on this Earth to do. -Elizabeth Gilbert

That was the way it was during all of the dictatorship and up to the Revolution of 1974. -Jose Saramago

The critical importance of honest journalism and a free flowing, respectful national conversation needs to be had in our country. But it is being buried as collateral damage in a war whose battles include political correctness and ideological orthodoxy. -Juan Williams

But there was something psychological happening there that was just a little bit different. And the other thing was, there was no stigma. Kids weren't going into the 'Center-for-Kids-That-Need-More-Help' or something like that. It was 826 Valencia. -Dave Eggers

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

Logic plus logic equals the illogical. Do you know what I mean? -Jason Schwartzman

I refer, of course, to the debts our nation has amassed for itself over decades of indulgence. It is the new Red Menace, this time consisting of ink. We can debate its origins endlessly and search for villains on ideological grounds, but the reality is pure arithmetic. -Mitch Daniels

My husband and I had five biological children but we also have been raising 23 foster children. -Michele Bachmann

Learning about all those different things psychologically – about grief and my own addictions and problems and stuff like that, and really getting an education on it, I think it was part of the process of it, learning about it and trying to lick it. -Richie Sambora

My own theory is that we are in the middle of a dramatic and broad technological and economic shift in which software companies are poised to take over large swathes of the economy. -Marc Andreessen

What this does for me emotionally, psychologically and spiritually – to look in the mirror and not be ashamed – has been very important in not relapsing. -Daniel Baldwin

As comfortable as I was with my adoption, the nature-versus-nurture question has been a big one for me. I adore my parents, but I always wondered if I would feel a different kind of love-not more or less, just different-for someone who was biologically related. -Emily Procter

After 10 years of French torture – psychological torture – it's great to do an American movie. -Emmanuelle Beart

It's not merely that conservatives are better at selling their product, or that they happen to have an easier-and undoubtedly simpler-ideological product to sell. It's that they know what they are selling. Liberals in general and Obama in particular cannot say the same. -Eric Alterman

Technologically we can deliver the ability of parents to be able to log into a school intranet, be able to see what homework has been set or look at lesson planning, whether the child is attending, see what the timetable is like, all of that is possible and there are some schools that are doing it already. -Jim Knight

These individuals on steroids, does it enhance their career, does it give them a little more strength, a little more stamina, a little more psychological edge? Absolutely. How do you determine what – what their stats would be without steroids? It's impossible to tell. -Jose Canseco

I definitely loved going on stage, I loved the nervous feeling and the performance and the doing-ness of it. It always felt kind of natural and inevitable and logical. -Sean Astin

While I'm generally silent on the affairs of my biological mother, her recent tirade has taken a gross turn. -Frances Bean Cobain

The premise of my book is that everyone is a bit ideological to some extent. Everyone comes from a ideological perspective. -Jonah Goldberg

I just love doing broader work – I always get asked to do fairly heavy-duty, intense dramas and interesting, psychologically intense characters. But you know, it's nice to make people laugh sometimes. -Julian Sands

Dialogue is the basis of Indian culture, and we don't want to make any enemies. Political and ideological adversaries, perhaps, but not enemies. -Evo Morales

I have a pathological fear of being on my own. When I'm with my own thoughts, I start to unravel myself, and I start to think really dark thoughts, self-destructive thoughts. -David Walliams

I've spent my whole life in Chicago being asked where am I from, so that I have a sense of displacement that also is very psychologically disorienting. -Ana Castillo

Basically, fundamentalism is a modern phenomenon. In the same way that Hitler evoked a mythological religion of German purity and the glory of the past, the Islamists use religion to evoke emotions and passions in people who have been oppressed for a long time in order to reach their purpose. -Azar Nafisi

I approve designs not because I think I am more gifted or somebody who can see ahead three or four years from now, but just to make sure that the design is a logical, rational decision, taken after analyzing pros and cons. -Carlos Ghosn

If you look at it ecologically, deforestation is high on the list of things which bring devastation. You cut down trees to build homes, for fuel, and you end up with no trees left, and you have to move on. If you take the earth as a whole, eventually there's nowhere to move on to. -Clive Anderson

Now, I'm not saying I'm fashionable, but there are sociological interests that matter to me, things that are theoretical, political, intellectual and also concerned with vanity and beauty that we all think about but that I try to mix up and translate into fashion. -Miuccia Prada

Nutrients are not drugs and they can't be studied as drugs. They are part of a biological system where all nutrients work as a team to support your biochemical processes. -Mark Hyman

I was trying to organise my DVDs into a sort of chronological order, and I am afraid that it all trailed off after the Sixties. -Paul Merton

I've never been to a shrink. But my parents were very psychologically literate – my father had undergone Freudian analysis – and we often talked about other people in psychological terms, so I picked up a lot of that. -Toby Young

Most governments are pragmatic, most people are logical. There are pockets of extremism in Israel, in the U.S. and in the Muslim world. But we have to fight them with reason, with logic and with compassion. -Al-Waleed bin Talal

The Americans provide still more advanced military assets and equipment; the Europeans are lagging behind. And eventually it will be difficult to co-operate even if you had the political will to co-operate because of the technological gap. -Anders Fogh Rasmussen

A book is still atemporal. It is you, in silence, hearing voices in your head, unfolding at a time that has nothing to do with the timescale of reading. And for the hours that we retreat into this moratorium, with the last form of private and silent human activity that isn't considered pathological, we are outside of time. -Richard Powers

My goal for technology has always been to reach a point where the technological mediation becomes invisible. -Richard Powers

Sometimes I feel like I'm in a dream world, because it doesn't always seem too logical how things work out. -Robert Rodriguez

I began to speak well at a very advanced age – 15, 16, 17 years old. It was psychological: the trauma of war, my family and growing up on my own. I was more or less a street kid. -Roberto Cavalli

There's the push and pull you put on yourself and the push and pull the world puts on you. Most of the time, the world's going to win out, because it's just logical that you should be more successful and more motivated. You can always be more. -John Krasinski

To me, it all comes down to things being character-driven. It's hard for me to look beyond that. CG and all this cool stuff – so be it. But to me, it pretty much begins and ends with character-driven plots rather than technologically-driven plots. -Billy West

I look at it logically. We need four wins. We're one step closer. -Brady Anderson

Out of the tens of thousands of prosthetic legs they've made, there's never been any 400-meter athletes run under 50 seconds. So, if this was such a technologically advanced prosthetic leg, then how come not everyone's qualifying, or coming close to the qualification time, then? -Oscar Pistorius

I had a longing for ritual, something I could cling to, a routine to make me feel well and contented. I hoped that reading Bible commentaries and theological critiques would nudge me closer to some kind of absolute that I could hold up as a torch to light my way. -Jack Dee

I have a problem with Mitt Romney. And it's big problem – one that extends beyond our ideological differences. My big concern is that Mitt Romney wants to become president for no other reason than because there's a possibility he can win. -Jennifer Granholm

Many of the racial problems in America are caused by the fact that people are innately tribal, and politicians know how to exploit that biological fact. -Jim Goad

It's clear that policymakers and economists are going to be interested in the measurement of well-being primarily as it correlates with health; they also want to know whether researchers can validate subjective responses with physiological indices. -Daniel Kahneman

I remember thinking quite logically that I didn't want to spoil my children with wealth and so that I would create a foundation, but not knowing exactly what it would focus on. -Bill Gates

Trying to suppress or eradicate symptoms on the physical level can be extremely important, but there's more to healing than that; dealing with psychological, emotional and spiritual issues involved in treating sickness is equally important. -Marianne Williamson

We need to shift from an economic organizing principle for human civilization, to a humanitarian organizing principle. Making money more important than your own children is a pathological way for an individual to run their affairs, and it's a pathological way for a society to run its affairs. -Marianne Williamson

The Israeli military plays more than a critical role in defending the citizens of the Jewish state. It also plays an important social, scientific and psychological role in preparing its young citizens for the challenging task of being Israelis in a difficult world. -Alan Dershowitz

I've thought hard about my psychological connections and I think I've managed to separate out the psychological from the legal, moral, and political. -Alan Dershowitz

I think Scotland could take a stand in a wonderful way, ecologically and morally and ethically. -Annie Lennox

No, I'm not a very methodologically pure actor. -Edward Norton

The technological revolution at home makes it much easier for computers to do our work. -Fareed Zakaria

I am shocked that Republicans can't explain why our technological and economic advantages are the result of sound monetary and economic policy. -Jack Kemp

I may have taken someone through the wringer psychologically, but I've never been sinister. -John Mayer

I'm willing to make compromises based on someone I think is the one, but I think it's psychologically important to people when they're famous to be the only famous person they know. -John Mayer

I would really love to go on an archaeological dig. -Megan Fox

Candidates and their consultants keep making the same mistake. They assume that all independents are bundled neatly together ideologically between Republicans and Democrats. -John Sununu

Autism is a neurological disorder. It's not caused by bad parenting. It's caused by, you know, abnormal development in the brain. The emotional circuits in the brain are abnormal. And there also are differences in the white matter, which is the brain's computer cables that hook up the different brain departments. -Temple Grandin

I thought if I had a Twitter feed and say I had a following of a 100,000, that means 100,000 of them would be interested in my book. It was logical, but it didn't turn out to be true. It turned out if I had a Twitter feed of a 100,000, four of them were interested in my book. -Steve Martin

I cringe at backstory. Because it never quite explains or gets into some psychological thing that is never quite right and never quite the truth and who knows why someone is some way. -Steve Martin

I feel like some of my baby fat is going away, and that's not just physically, it's psychologically. I think that your body is in tune with your mind and your spirituality and your heart. If things are going better, I just think you look better. -Drew Barrymore

I see that not everyone in the West has understood that the Soviet Union has disappeared from the political map of the world and that a new country has emerged with new humanist and ideological principles at the foundation of its existence. -Vladimir Putin

Cinema has the capacity to be so physiological. -Kathryn Bigelow

When I speak at my local church, which I try to do 35 to 40 times a year, I try in every lesson to take the Old Testament text or New Testament text and apply them to what is happening to me or how that applies to the audience that I'm teaching in a modern, fast-changing, technological world. I use headlines, interfaith and that sort of thing. -Jimmy Carter

It turns out that advancing equal opportunity and economic empowerment is both morally right and good economics, because discrimination, poverty and ignorance restrict growth, while investments in education, infrastructure and scientific and technological research increase it, creating more good jobs and new wealth for all of us. -William J. Clinton

Obama has built his public image around his ability to bridge divisions – racial, ideological or generational. And that was his reputation, even at Harvard Law School, where he was the first black president of the 'Law Review.' -Mara Liasson

I am incapable of speaking of myself and of my life and the states of my soul, I am discreet to an almost pathological degree, and there is nothing I can do against that. -Milan Kundera

The one thing I've learned in the last ten years is that successful artists don't get paid to write and sing songs, they get paid for the psychological roller coaster they're going to have to ride. That's the hard work. -Enrique Iglesias

If Romney would go ideological in explaining Obama, it would help. We gotta stop the, 'He's a nice guy' stuff. Nice guys don't do what Obama is doing. Nice guys don't say and do and act the way Obama is saying, doing, and acting. -Rush Limbaugh

Nothing makes logical sense in this industry. -Jon Cryer

Sometimes I eavesdrop on people. I could rationalize it – oh, this is good anthropological research for characters I'm writing – but it's basically just nosiness. It also helps me gauge where I'm at: Am I normal? -Mindy Kaling

Given that sexual orientation is innate and that we are all, in theological terms, children of God, to deny access to some sacraments based on sexuality is as wrong as denying access to some sacraments based on race or gender. -Jon Meacham

Extremists often derive their inspiration from literal interpretations of texts that should rightly be read not as Associated Press reports from the ancient world, but as theological and literary enterprises requiring independent intellectual assessment. -Jon Meacham

For me, the peculiar qualities of faith are a logical outcome of this level of biological organization. -E. O. Wilson

The biological evolutionary perception of life and of human qualities is radically different from that of traditional religion, whether it's Southern Baptist or Islam or any religion that believes in a supernatural supervalance over humanity. -E. O. Wilson

'The Creation' presents an argument for saving biological diversity on Earth. Most of the book is for as broad an audience as possible. -E. O. Wilson

So in my freshman year at the University of Alabama, learning the literature on evolution, what was known about it biologically, just gradually transformed me by taking me out of literalism and increasingly into a more secular, scientific view of the world. -E. O. Wilson

It's time to stop thinking of the Republican Party as an exclusive club where your ideological card is checked at the door, and start thinking about how we can attract more solution-based leaders like Nathan Fletcher and Anthony Adams. -Arnold Schwarzenegger

The things that inform student culture are created and controlled by the unseen culture, the sociological aspects of our climbing culture, our 'me' generation, our yuppie culture, our SUVs, or, you know, shopping culture, our war culture. -Gus Van Sant

I'm interested in the psychological exploration of human nature, and it just happens to come in the form of film-making. -Guy Pearce

Being sent away to school was no different from my biological mother giving me away. -Michael Reagan

Among the many problems with taking the Bible literally is it reduces the most mysterious and complex of realities to simple – even simplistic – terms. Yes, scripture speaks of fire and damnation and eternal bliss, but the Bible is the product of human hands and hearts, and much of the imagery is allegorical, not meteorological. -Jon Meacham

The decline and fall of the modern religious right's notion of a Christian America creates a calmer political environment and, for many believers, may help open the way for a more theologically serious religious life. -Jon Meacham

The production of natural resources in agriculture, forestry and fisheries, stable natural hydrological cycles, fertile soils, a balanced climate and numerous other vital ecosystem services can only be permanently secured through the protection and sustainable use of biological diversity. -Sigmar Gabriel

In Germany it is good if as many people as possible join initiatives and peaceful demonstrations against the rule of the financial markets. Worshipping the unfettered freedom of global markets has brought the world to the brink of ruin. We now need social and ecological rules for the market economy. -Sigmar Gabriel

We must clearly see that international hostile forces are intensifying the strategic plot of Westernizing and dividing China, and ideological and cultural fields are the focal areas of their long-term infiltration. -Hu Jintao

The difficulty for the Government is there's this ideological straitjacket of the market will provide, let the market rip and everything will work out… It's back to trickle-down economics, which, it's plain to see, have not delivered. -Frances O'Grady

Obama did inherit a deficit when he came into office. Why this fact justifies racking up vastly more debt and bigger deficits is a logical mystery. -Jonah Goldberg

I make these little films. I'm just a working person. I just study people a little bit more. It's more sociological, and it's funny anyway – not that serious. It's not like false humility. I just take it for what it is. -Julie Delpy

Well, my thoughts about California are kind of mythological. To me, as well as being a real place, it's a place where people go to find something – to find happiness or to realize their dreams. So it has that kind of quality of heroism and heartache, and Australia has that, as well. -Colin Hay

The hope for our nation and our world lies within our ability to innovate and move forward technologically. -James Rollins

I would say that, in the future, the book will be reserved for things that function best as a book. So, if I need a textbook that's going to be out of date because of new technological inventions, you're better off having it where you can download the supplements or the update. -Art Spiegelman

The moment the angel enters a life it enters an environment. We are ecological from day one. -James Hillman

British crime stories tend to be very internal, psychological, claustrophobic, very limited in terms of geography. -Lee Child

I've learned there's a big difference between a long-focused value investor and a good short-seller. That difference is psychological and I think it falls into the realm of behavioral finance. -James Chanos

First of all, I don't think that America is truly prepared for a biological or a chemical attack. However, we are moving in the right direction. -Saxby Chambliss

A friend of mine – a cameraman at MTV – lost a lot of weight from cycling, and I thought I'd try it, too, thinking whenever you look at a cyclist they all look super-skinny, so hey, why not? But then it turned into such a psychologically satisfying thing. -Carson Daly

Being a biological mother just isn't part of my experience this time around. However, I am a mother who continues to give birth to ideas and ways of experiencing life that challenge the norm. -Kim Cattrall

Over the last half century the television interview has given us some of TV's most heart-stopping and memorable moments. On the surface it is a simple format – two people sitting across from one another having a conversation. But underneath it is often a power struggle – a battle for the psychological advantage. -David Frost

The first lie of fiction is that the author gives some order to the chaos of life: chronological order, or whatever order the author chooses. -Isabel Allende

Chemical and biological attacks are scary and will kill a lot of people but don't rise to the level of nuclear. -Nelson DeMille

I don't believe in technological determinism, especially not in biology and medicine. We have strong laws to keep doctors from monkeying around with humans that will remain in place. It's simply not true that everything that is technologically possible gets done. -Freeman Dyson

The only logical thing I can think of is that I knew there were such things as artists, and I knew there were none where I lived. So I knew that to be an artist you had to be somewhere else. And I very much wanted to be somewhere else. -Jasper Johns

Painting is so poetic, while sculpture is more logical and scientific and makes you worry about gravity. -Damien Hirst

I like all of the mental, psychological thriller movies too. I enjoy horror movies across the board. -Sophia Bush

Before I met Ayn Rand, I was a logical positivist, and accordingly, I didn't believe in absolutes, moral or otherwise. If I couldn't prove a proposition with facts and figures, it was without merit. -Alan Greenspan

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

If you're a human being walking the earth, you're weird, you're strange, you're psychologically challenged. -Philip Seymour Hoffman

If reincarnation is a useful biological idea it is certain that somewhere in the universe it will happen. -Kary Mullis

I am not a great theologian. I know there is a theological concept called invincible ignorance in which a strong enough faith binds you to any facts to the contrary. -Barney Frank

The Internet, like the steam engine, is a technological breakthrough that changed the world. -Peter Singer

Without in any way minimising the economic and psychological blow that people experience when they lose their jobs, the unemployed in affluent countries still have a safety net, in the form of social security payments, and usually free healthcare and free education for their children. They also have sanitation and safe drinking water. -Peter Singer

I love the wry motto of the Paleontological Society, meant both literally and figuratively, for hammers are the main tool of our trade: Frango ut patefaciam – I break in order to reveal. -Stephen Jay Gould

My own field of paleontology has strongly challenged the Darwinian premise that life's major transformations can be explained by adding up, through the immensity of geological time, the successive tiny changes produced generation after generation by natural selection. -Stephen Jay Gould

Not all problems have a technological answer, but when they do, that is the more lasting solution. -Andy Grove

We have altered the physical, chemical and biological properties of the planet on a geological scale. We have left no part of the globe untouched. -David Suzuki

Rapid population growth and technological innovation, combined with our lack of understanding about how the natural systems of which we are a part work, have created a mess. -David Suzuki

From year to year, environmental changes are incremental and often barely register in our lives, but from evolutionary or geological perspectives, what is happening is explosive change. -David Suzuki

The industrial processes in use today were developed at a time when no one had to consider what the environmental impact was. Who cared? But making ecological concerns matter to a company's bottom line will help it do the research and development that will reinvent everything we buy. -Daniel Goleman

Often, we ignore the fact that our spiritual condition and psychological state of mind are highly affected by what is happening to us physically. Sometimes depression is simply the result of exhaustion. -Tony Campolo

The first reason for the preponderant influence of those Evangelicals who define themselves as advocates of Religious Right theological and political ideologies is that they have both the financial means and technological know-how to make widespread use of modern electronic forms of communication. -Tony Campolo

I'm a walker. I enjoy walking, which I think psychologically expresses my feelings of wanting liberation without exerting myself too much. -Janeane Garofalo

Calm, open debate, and logical thought drive strength to its maximum effectiveness. -Billy Corgan

I was becoming post-ideological. -Christopher Hitchens

In the grip of a neurological disorder, I am fast losing control of words even as my relationship with the world has been reduced to them. -Christopher Hitchens

I deal with football from a realistic, logical point of view. -Joe Namath

Anyone with sincere religious beliefs cannot say that all religions are true. That is so illogical it is pathetic. All religion cannot be true because some of them are so diametrically opposed to each other. -Josh McDowell

My father had this mythological sense of the old New York, and he used to tell me stories about these old gangs, particularly the Forty Thieves in the Fourth Ward. -Martin Scorsese

All of my children are ideologically and politically in sync with me, they all have authentic Christian faith. It's something I'm very grateful for. -Mike Huckabee

I find the question of whether gender differences are biologically determined or socially constructed to be deeply disturbing. -Carol Gilligan

When I look at my life, I see that I wanted to be free of the physical plane, the psychological plane, and when I got free of those I didn't want to go anywhere near them. -Ram Dass

I am excited about focusing full-time on talking about my job-creation agenda and building a new economy for Washington state. We have a great chance to seize our own destiny, build our own industries, and create our own technological revolutions right here at home. -Jay Inslee

My first job when I got my equity card was acting in 14 plays back-to-back. Playing that many roles, you look for ways of differentiating the characters physically, which goes hand in hand with understanding them psychologically. -Andy Serkis

So the proposition that the ideal parents for any child are its biological parents is a statement with which we can all agree in the generality, but which does not apply, for one reason or another, in many particular circumstances. -Malcolm Turnbull

Most technological advances in our life now come from serendipitous discoveries. That is a contraction of rocket technology and computer technology and atomic clock technology. -Serge Haroche

I had this spooky psychological thing about 'The Piano' before it began, which was how everybody was going to go nuts on the set. Because a film tends to set up the way people are going to behave. -Jane Campion

I think women think a lot about cycles, biological and personal. This year another cycle came around: my contract was up. It seemed an opportunity to take a life audit. -Jane Pauley

About the time I turned 50, I experienced the profound biological change that often accompanies women at that age. Also, I put two kids in college and lost both of my parents, so I'm no longer somebody's daughter. -Jane Pauley

My route so far through life hasn't been particularly logical, or even thought out. -Jarvis Cocker

I tend to jot down moments, lines, interactions that don't really make any sense. I try and explain these scattered notes to my close friends, and they become more and more logical. I see screenwriting as a bit like a math equation which I have to solve. -Asghar Farhadi

There are those who simply want to live their lives, and feel they cannot live the way they want to in Iran. Others are ideologically motivated: They will stay no matter what and try to change things. -Asghar Farhadi

I think perhaps Pakistan can take the lead. Perhaps Turkey can as well, being part of Europe. But someone has to start talking about why the Muslim world has become a boiling pot and look beyond these cartoons to what the ideological reasons are for this divide. -Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy

While neurological studies have tried to identify components responsible for fear and greed, the impact on finance is less clear. -Andrew Lo

I know that if I had a television in my flat I would convince myself that everything on it was really interesting. I would say, 'I'm a Celebrity – Get Me Out of Here!' is so sociologically fascinating that I think I'd better watch. -Brian Eno

I don't know much about my biological background. -Dan Stevens

I look back on my liberal political beliefs with a sort of wonder – as another exercise in self-involvement – rewarding myself for some superiority I could not logically describe. -David Mamet

My individual, psychological descent coincided, ironically, with my ascent into the public eye. -Joni Mitchell

The thing that gave me the most pain in life, psychologically, and it gave me tremendous pain psychologically, is man's disrespect for nature. -Joni Mitchell

Do men have a biological clock? I feel like I do. Something is definitely ticking! -Luke Wilson

I'm just not one of those people who thought having biological children was that important, to me it was more about wanting to raise a child. -Edie Falco

I felt that the biological clock was some myth to keep me from doing what I wanted to do. And so I rebelled against it in the '90s. I thought it was a backlasher, some sort of faulty data. But it's real. I'm glad I woke up before my body was just like 'uh-uh.' -Lili Taylor

I don't like the slasher stuff, myself, but I do like the psychological horror of Roman Polanski and that world. But, it's curious to me why people do like to be afraid. -Dylan McDermott

The Republican argument that raising the debt ceiling encourages additional future spending is logically irresponsible. The debt ceiling has to be raised to authorize spending already approved by Congress. Despite that fallacy, the GOP has been able to score political points with its argument. -Eliot Spitzer

I have long said there are three distinct groups under the GOP's tent: theological warriors, who want to impose their social views on the rest of society; Tea Party zealots, who say with a straight face that they want the government to get out of their Medicare; and remnants of the pro-business moderates. -Eliot Spitzer

We can pay the ecological debt by changing economic models, and by giving up luxury consumption, setting aside selfishness and individualism, and thinking about the people and the planet Earth. -Evo Morales

Most Americans will be horrified that President Obama is compromising our deterrent to chemical and biological attacks on this country. Our allies will also be troubled by his aspiration to eliminate U.S. tactical nuclear weapons in Europe. -Frank Gaffney

Album sales have collapsed, with few artists making money from albums; touring is more lucrative. But I'm 53 now and won't be able to tour forever, so a logical step is to get into writing film scores. Trouble is, you need to be somewhere which has a big film industry – another reason why I'm thinking about living in California. -Gary Numan

I was going to go to school to become a neurological surgeon. -Angel Haze

You see, my version of why anyone would want to become an actor is that it's some psychological fixation, something that happened in puberty that you didn't outgrow in time, which is normal. Nevertheless, if you make it a profession, it can be really neurotic. -Christoph Waltz

The classic rule of thumb is that if you are an intellectual ideological magazine, you do better in opposition than you do if your views are reflected by people in power. -John Podhoretz

Eighteen fifty-eight was a year of great technological advancement in the West. That was the year when Queen Victoria was able, for the first time, to communicate with President Buchanan, through the Transatlantic Telegraphic Cable. And they were the first to 'Twitter' transatlantically. -Hans Rosling

We are biological creatures. We are born, we live, we die. There is no transcendent purpose to existence. At best we are creatures of reason, and by using reason we can cure ourselves of emotional excess. Purged of both hope and fear, we find courage in the face of helplessness, insignificance and uncertainty. -Jonathan Sacks

People are craving this great progress in electronics, going after computers, the Internet, etc. It's a giant progress technologically. But they must have a balance of soul, a balance for human beauty. That means art has an important role. -Mstislav Rostropovich

As Minister of Foreign Affairs. I will work on deepening Haiti's links with its traditional partners from the North and the South, while exploring all the opportunities for economic, cultural, scientific and technological cooperation that may benefit my country. -Laurent Lamothe

The relationship of black Americans to Obama is sociologically riveting. -Andrew Sullivan

I've always been a pretty candid person. I'm not a very secretive person; I'm not a very discreet person. One of my best friends once described me as pathologically indiscreet. -Andrew Sullivan

Sleeping with your child, wearing your child in a sling as opposed to pushing them around in expensive strollers, those are things that matter biologically and sociologically for the structure of a family. -Mayim Bialik

A lot of the characters I play have problems, they are marginalised, they have serious psychological problems, problems with relationships, with childhood. These are big subjects, big subjects. You can't balk at work like that. As an actor, that's as good as it gets. -Robert Carlyle

I like the idea of the documentary as a portrait. There's not a chronological beginning, middle, and end structure. You build something in the editing room that's shaped by getting to know the person and digging deeper, unpeeling the layers of them as you get to know them. -Spike Jonze

I was a 'Duck Hunt' and 'Mario' guy, and stuff like that. I was never technologically driven. I never had all the cool, new toys. I was the youngest child, I wasn't the only child, so I wasn't spoiled as a kid. And, we were on the farm, so we didn't have a lot. Also, with computers, I'm not very good with them. I just check my email. -Garrett Hedlund

I've always felt you unearth story, like you're on an archeological dig. -Andrew Stanton

I want to congratulate all the men out there who are working diligently to be good fathers whether they are stepfathers, or biological fathers or just spiritual fathers. -T. D. Jakes

It's art that pushes against psychological and social expectations, that tries to transform decay into something generative, that is replicative in a baroque way, that isn't about progress, and wants to – as Walt Whitman put it – 'contain multitudes.' -Jerry Saltz

I like something about George W. Bush. A lot. After spending more than a decade having almost physiological-chemical reactions anytime I saw him, getting the heebie-jeebies whenever he spoke – after being sure from the start that he was a Gremlin on the wing of America – I really like the paintings of George W. Bush. -Jerry Saltz

There's a weird cloud around you when you're recognizable. It was a brief window for me. I think you have to have a pathological need for attention of any type, negative or positive, to thrive in that kind of situation. And I only want compliments. -Diablo Cody

Everyone's talking about how no one is buying records any more, but to me it's quite logical. In the 1990s, music was so hardcore-marketed to a certain group of people that I think a lot of kids felt taken advantage of. -Robyn

Illogical thinkers throw names and slurs around because they have no arguments with which to rebut their opponents. Rational people have to keep hammering their points home. -Ben Carson

I'm not deeply ideologically driven. I believe in good center-right politics. -John Key

I'm hooked on Polanski's films, his psychological thrillers. I love 'Rosemary's Baby,' I love 'Repulsion.' -Vera Farmiga

Even my pathological love of Japan and its beauties, glories and eccentricities is sorely tested by 'The Grudge 2,' from Takashi Shimizu, a movie so bewildering and impenetrable that I believe it siphoned off a good 40 IQ points. -Stephen Hunter

I never went through a biological clock experience. I never even heard it ticking. -Jane Lynch

Internet entrepreneurs are using technology at every level of their company – from a one-person agency to a small firm, the newest technological advances are interwoven throughout every aspect of Internet-based businesses. -Marc Ostrofsky

What is sure is that technological change is accelerating in all directions and, like children playing in a fountain, consumers are reveling in the experience. -Simon Mainwaring

A whole bunch of big technological shocks occurred when Asian innovations – paper, gunpowder, the stirrup, the moldboard plow and so on – came to Europe via the Silk Road. -Charles C. Mann

I'm not sure that it's possible to write a novel about people who don't transgress or stumble, people who don't surprise themselves with the things they do, people who can explain all their actions with perfect logical consistency. At least it's not possible for me to write that sort of novel. -Tom Perrotta

Being unemployed has so many real and palpable ramifications but there are also psychological side effects which you can only understand if you've truly lived through it. -Mika Brzezinski

I was fired at the pinnacle of my career, on my 39th birthday. And in the year that followed, I learned that there are many psychological phases of being 'let go.' -Mika Brzezinski

What works for me is knowing the character in an emotional sense. I wish I was more logical but it doesn't work for me like that. I need quite a lot of time; it's why I always worry when I'm doing more than one thing at a time. I hope that some sort of magic will kick in. -Sally Hawkins

Nature is not evil. The world occasionally shrugs its shoulders, and people get knocked off. The earth, for geological reasons that are well known, is a fairly risky place to live. To be evil, you have to have intent. Any remarkable natural happening in which no human will is employed cannot be regarded as evil. -Simon Winchester

We should all live in central or southwest Queensland in Australia, which is geologically stable. Or Kansas or Nebraska, because it's relatively geologically stable. I am sure there is no emergency plan for Topeka. -Simon Winchester

All of those broken bones in northern Japan, all of those broken lives and those broken homes prompt us to remember what in calmer times we are invariably minded to forget: the most stern and chilling of mantras, which holds, quite simply, that mankind inhabits this earth subject to geological consent – which can be withdrawn at any time. -Simon Winchester

The industrial revolution in the new century is, in essence, a scientific and technological revolution, and breaking through the cutting edge is a shortcut to the building of an economic giant. -Kim Jong-un

When I was a kid, I was into psychological thrillers. When I was 12, my favorite movie was 'Thirteen.' I just really liked movies that showed an extreme range in acting. That's what made me want to become an actress. -Leven Rambin

All scientists agree that evolution has occurred – that all life comes from a common ancestry, that there has been extinction, and that new taxa, new biological groups, have arisen. The question is, is natural selection enough to explain evolution? Is it the driver of evolution? -Lynn Margulis

There's been very little writing about speech impediments, even though it's this huge psychological barrier. -David Mitchell

It's physically and psychologically exhausting to make a film. -Guillaume Canet

Directing remains very psychological, and it takes a lot of time and reflection. When you're an actor, it takes less time, and you can express yourself physically. -Guillaume Canet

My mother was an actress and my voice teacher, an incredible voice teacher. My biological father is an actor, and my stepfather, who raised me along with my mother, is a psychotherapist. I was always supported in creative ventures. -Laura Benanti

And I think the female creative urge is intrinsically biologically linked to our ability to give birth to a child, even if we've never… I've never given birth, but I feel like it's part of our psychology. -Zoe Kazan

Failing my driving test first time; that was a disappointment on a geological scale. -Richard Hammond

Many in Taiwan believe that Hu Jintao is much more sophisticated than his predecessors in understanding Taiwan. He represents a different generation of leaders, more pragmatic, less ideological. -Ma Ying-jeou

Being a parent is the hardest thing in the world… the psychological toll it takes on you because these lives are in your hands. I take it very seriously. -Michelle Pfeiffer

I'm not surprised, but I am disappointed that Katharine Carr Esters claims that she was 'tricked' into divulging her true feelings about Oprah and that she now denies that she revealed to me the identity of Oprah's biological father. -Kitty Kelley

I attacked Dawkins's book on God because I think he is theologically illiterate. -Terry Eagleton

I liked early Amis a lot, but I stopped reading him some time ago. I admire Hitchens on literary topics – I think he is very astute. McEwan, I read a bit. But I suppose it's more the ideological phenomenon that they represent together that interests me. -Terry Eagleton

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

The demise of Google Reader, if logical, is a reminder of how far we've come from the cuddly old 'I'm Feeling Lucky' Google days, in which there was a foreseeably-astonishing delight in the way Google's evolving design tricks anticipated what users would like. -James Fallows

Every time we consume meat, eggs or dairy foods, we contribute to ecological devastation and the wasteful misuse of resources on a global scale. -Ingrid Newkirk

If there's a God, and we have all this evidence that there's evolution, but He created the world only 6,000 years ago – what is the best and most logical explanation to reconcile those two things? I came up with – He came up with it, of course – that all things are fakeable. -David Javerbaum

Big companies are looking closer term, and even the most technological companies spend less than 1% of sales on research. Startups have suffered the burst bubble. -Nicholas Negroponte

I'm in favor of building the fence, and doing everything technologically to protect our borders. But the other way to secure the border, and one of the things we must do, is put in place good guest-worker programs that employers can actually use. -David Rouzer

The great thing about baseball is the causality is easy to determine and it always falls on the shoulders of one person. So there is absolute responsibility. That's why baseball is psychologically the cruelest sport and why it really requires psychological resources to play baseball – because you have to learn to live with failure. -Michael Mandelbaum

If you ask me, the place that a story happens is as equal character. It's almost like an ecological viewpoint: These people are living in this piece of land, and in this piece of land in this time this is possible. For me, I almost think location first. It's time first – what year is it – then where are we, and then who is in it. -Mike Mills

Someone told me about drama schools, and they seemed like mythological places – you can really go and be in drama classes all day? I inadvertently entered into this world where people wore bicycle clips and did song-and-dance routines in the corridors. -Nick Moran

If you catch me coming out of a film, when I'm emotionally involved, I can tell you at that moment why I like it – but to talk about it years later is not logical to me. -Abbas Kiarostami

Broadcasting's best days lie ahead as both an engine of local economies and as an integral part of tomorrow's technological world. -Gordon Smith

You see, psychologically, Australia must understand it has to live in the region around it. Australia must find its security in Asia; it cannot find its security from Asia. -Paul Keating

My experience as a pastor is lots of people have really toxic, dangerous, psychologically devastating images of God in their head, images of a God who's not good. -Rob Bell

Since at least the Middle Ages, philosophers and philologists have dreamed of curing natural languages of their flaws by constructing entirely new idioms according to orderly, logical principles. -Joshua Foer

Just as we accumulate memories of facts by integrating them into a network, we accumulate life experiences by integrating them into a web of other chronological memories. The denser the web, the denser the experience of time. -Joshua Foer

You can graph human evolution, which is mostly a straight line, but we do get better and change over time, and you can graph technological evolution, which is a line that's going straight up. They are going to intersect each other at some point, and that's happening now. -Daniel H. Wilson

My story reflexes come less from fantasy or horror than from the darker sort of psychological thriller – not as plot-driven as most, rather more mood-driven. My interest in the supernatural is a complication – though I am less interested in ghosts than in people who see ghosts. -Graham Joyce

I can't imagine what it would be like to write in a relaxed state. I'm going to be writing some stories for my own interest. I want to experiment with different things and see if I can approach writing with much less control and in a better psychological state. It will be like breaking out of a straitjacket. -Kate Atkinson

Because of my medical and ideological training, I am accustomed to saying that life is adaptation and symbiosis. -Tabare Vazquez

I feel very much ideologically, politically if you like, and emotionally part of the European cinema. -Mike Leigh

In order to write novels for a living – it's not pathological, but I do think and worry and brood and fidget about stuff that I'm working on. -Richard Ford

I don't have a very logical and orderly mind. -Richard Ford

What does the artist do? He draws connections. He ties the invisible threads between things. He dives into history, be it the history of mankind, the geological history of the Earth or the beginning and end of the manifest cosmos. -Anselm Kiefer

Sometimes people who want to understand Haiti from a political perspective may be missing part of the picture. They also need to look at Haiti from a psychological perspective. -Jean-Bertrand Aristide

Wars don't happen on battlefields; they go on happening in people's hearts for generations and generations, and the ecological damage is unfathomably complex and dire. -Michael Leunig

There's already a marriage clock, a career clock, a biological clock. Sometimes being a woman feels like standing in the lobby of a hotel, looking at the dials depicting every time zone in the world behind the front desk – except they all apply to you, and all at once. -Sloane Crosley

And I think that it's – the military has actually made improvements, so people are considering post-traumatic stress disorder as, at the least, a possible psychological problem. You know, when I was in Vietnam, it was just considered malingering. And we're making progress. -Karl Marlantes

In the military I could exercise the power of being automatically respected because of the medals on my chest, not because I had done anything right at the moment to earn that respect. This is pretty nice. It's also a psychological trap that can stop one's growth and allow one to get away with just plain bad behavior. -Karl Marlantes

The only thing that makes battle psychologically tolerable is the brotherhood among soldiers. You need each other to get by. -Sebastian Junger

My books are written with a strong chronological spine. -Doris Kearns Goodwin

Life may unfold chronologically for the body and for bureaucracies that keep track of such things as births, marriages, deaths, visas, tax returns, expulsions, and identity cards, but memory does not play this game in quite the same way, always manages to confound the desire for tidiness. -Ariel Dorfman

I don't do something necessarily to make a big profit or because it's a logical business decision. -James Dyson

Fiscal decentralisation does not lead to higher economic growth because economic growth is much more driven by factors other than taxes and spending, e.g. increases in technological progress and improved human capital. -Lars Feld

While many technological measures can be taken to secure safety at nuclear power plants, such measures on their own cannot cover great risks. -Naoto Kan

No one likes to feel helpless. We find it psychologically unbearable and inside ourselves we may try to make ourselves part author of our misfortune rather than simply the recipient of it. -Susie Orbach

Being able to provoke a different point of view to the standard current ideological or political perspective as played out in conventional newspaper or radio reportage is what a public intellectual does. But it's not merely about being oppositional, because that's too negative. -Susie Orbach

I was born and raised in East Los Angeles by a single mom who had three biological kids and adopted four more. I never met my dad. -will.i.am

When the music industry started collapsing, the logical people understood that the only place to go for shelter was the underground. If the world on the surface is burning up, and you know people that have bunkers, go to the bunkers. -will.i.am

If you live in a good neighborhood, you drive home and there's a bank. There's grocery stores and big houses – but no motels. What that tells you psychologically is you protect your money and buy good things for your family to eat in your nice big house. -will.i.am

Kids whose puberty begins too soon face not just psychological risks, but physical ones too, with an increased likelihood of cancer, as well as skeletal changes that could prevent them from attaining their full adult height. -Jeffrey Kluger

I actually think the whole concept of retirement is a bit stupid, so yes, I do want to do something else. There is this strange thing that just because chronologically on a Friday night you have reached a certain age… with all that experience, how can it be that on a Monday morning, you are useless? -Stuart Rose

Even as the population doubled from three to six billion, we managed to race ahead with all kinds of technological and scientific events in agriculture – from using more fertilizers to mechanization to advanced plant breeding. -Nina Fedoroff

Anyone interested in language ends up writing about the sociological issues around it. -David Crystal

Human freedom is not an illusion; it is an objective phenomenon, distinct from all other biological conditions and found in only one species – us. -Daniel Dennett

When dealing in the technology, it becomes a question of whether you overuse something. I think that's worse than having something technologically available to you and not using it. -Al Michaels

Resistance to revelation, resistance to becoming conscious of all that dwells within us – high and low, light and dark – is the anti-change factor. It is also the mainspring of all our psychological fears. -Guy Finley

Routines may include taking a warm bath or a relaxing walk in the evening, or practicing meditation/relaxation exercises. Psychologically, the completion of such a practice tells your mind and body that the day's work is over and you are free to relax and sleep. -Andrew Weil

I feel totally lucky and happy. I think a lot of young directors feel this way but you sort of, like, have a biological clock that starts ticking and you like feel like you aren't anything until you direct a movie and you need to find yourself and this is how you do it. -Max Winkler

We're not interested in cloning the Michael Jordans and Michael Jacksons of the world, but rather assisting infertile couples that deserve the right to have a biological child to have one. -Panayiotis Zavos

Engel & Voelkers has a long-standing reputation for providing excellence to a demanding clientele. Now we provide even more by offering our technologically-savvy customers the most up-to-the-minute data on homes, from listing prices to photos – all at their fingertips. -Anthony Hitt

In 'The Insider,' I had violence – lethal, life-taking aggression – all happening psychologically, all with people talking to other people. -Michael Mann

We are now living in a fast paced technological era where every skill that we teach our children becomes obsolete in the 10 to 15 years due to exponentially growing technological advances. -Naveen Jain

For all that being a parent is normal statistically, it's not normal psychologically. It produces some of the most extreme emotions you'll ever have. -Emma Donoghue

The truth of it is that women are far more logical than men. -George Hamilton

I get so disenfranchised reading the news, because global borders and lines we've created are completely unnecessary. That's just another person on the other side, and it's his bad luck that he was born there and it's my good fortune that I was born here. It's all kind of illogical. -Eddie Huang

I love monsters, I love creatures, I love beings, I love aliens. That's more supernatural and more the stuff of fairy tales. Fairy tales are as ancient as we are. I love those stories. I think they're really interesting because they always have more than simply the fright aspect. There's something deeply psychological. -Denis O'Hare

When you think of Grimm's fairy tales, they are deeply, deeply psychological. They're so powerful, so bloody, and really, really disturbing. Think about five-year-olds reading that stuff. Even 'Little Red Riding Hood' is a really freaky story. Grandma is gobbled up by a wolf, and the wolf is going to eat the girl. That's scary stuff. -Denis O'Hare

For most of my life, I believed that my father had broken many of my bones. They were emotional and psychological bones; things no one could see, things that caused me to limp through life clutching for and holding on to people and situations that often rendered me immobile. -Iyanla Vanzant

Taking the future in your own hands has a fantastic psychological impact. -Aleqa Hammond

I think 'The Lord of the Rings' trilogy has a very satisfying ending, and there's not really that deep of a mythological construct. -Damon Lindelof

I love mysteries on television – the more psychologically complex, the better. -Rebecca Eaton

So much of young adult literature has turned dark, almost pathological. It's almost as if there is a race to see who can be the most dysfunctional. -Richard Paul Evans

Novelists are no more moral or certain than anybody else; we are ideologically adrift, and if we are any good then our writing will live in several places at once. That is both our curse and our charm. -Andrew O'Hagan

Nigerian politics has been, since the military dictatorships, largely non-ideological. Rather than a battle of ideas, it is about who can pump in the most money and buy the most access. -Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Our modern world, though infinitely more complex than that of ancient Greece, is also far more superficial. Where the Greeks offered simple psychological training, we live in an age of style and spin in which perceptions of good and evil slither and shift with the political view of the moment. -David Gemmell

I had this idea that I could hire myself out as a person to go on archeological digs and dig, without any training! I actually wrote to a number of archeology departments and offered up my services. -Jennifer Egan

My last novel, 'The Keep,' was very explicitly technological, about the quality of living in a state constantly surrounded by disembodied presences, and I was thinking very much about the online experience. -Jennifer Egan

Extreme heroism springs from something that no scientific theory can fully explain; it's an illogical impulse that flies in the face of biology, psychology, actuarial statistics, and basic common sense. -Christopher McDougall

We're now able to show that the words of comfort trigger biological reactions which are the very things that you want, and you can use drugs to get there, or you can use words of comfort to get there, which would make your drugs so much more effective. -Abraham Verghese

I like a boyish quality in a man, somebody who is still adventurous. But I have no rules. I do not care – within reason – about your chronological age. I care whether you have passion in your life. -Mary Frann

I know in this time of great technological advancement, the idea of reading a book seems almost anachronistic, but I think it's worth preserving. -Garth Stein

I'm a storyteller. I feel like the issue of discourse is an important one because there's a lot of political and ideological discourse that goes around, and we relate to that on an intellectual level. -Ayad Akhtar

I don't think I could write a novel that wasn't theological. -Marilynne Robinson

Writing is literally transformative. When we read, we are changed. When we write, we are changed. It's neurological. To me, this is a kind of magic. -Francesca Lia Block

When Bill Clinton chose Al Gore in 1992 – from the same generational, ideological, and geographical background as his – it underscored his campaign's central argument that this was a clash between the past and the future, that 'Don't Stop Thinking About Tomorrow' was indeed the campaign's anthem. -Jeff Greenfield

'London' is a gallery of sensation of impressions. It is a history of London in a thematic rather than a chronological sense with chapters of the history of smells, the history of silence, and the history of light. I have described the book as a labyrinth, and in that sense in complements my description of London itself. -Peter Ackroyd

We had some really powerful technology – Atari always was a technology-driven company, and we were very keen on keeping the technological edge on everything. There's a whole bunch of things that we innovated. We made the first computer that did stamps or sprites, we did screen-mapping for the very first time, and a lot of stuff like that. -Nolan Bushnell

The average person doesn't understand what a stem cell is. There's a lack of health literacy in our nation. So the public can't really get into this dialogue because they don't understand the complexity of stem cells, not the faith-based approach, not the ideological or political, but the science behind stem cells. -Richard Carmona

It is imperfection – not perfection – that is the end result of the program written into that formidably complex engine that is the human brain, and of the influences exerted upon us by the environment and whoever takes care of us during the long years of our physical, psychological and intellectual development. -Rita Levi-Montalcini

Technological innovation has dramatically lowered the cost of computing, making it possible for large numbers of consumers to own powerful new technologies at reasonably low prices. -James Surowiecki

I'm not of the opinion that the next logical step for a book is for it to be made into a film. -Jasper Fforde

I have a pathological terror of falling through ice. I nearly drowned once. I fell off a boat and got a cramp, and was rescued by an oil-rig diver, a great bear of a man who simply leant into the water and scooped me out with one finger. -Jeremy Clarkson

People reveal so much of their mental processes online, simply because the psychological effect of anonymity just means that a whole raft of inhibitions are left alone when people log on. -Joanne Harris

You cannot escape from the biological law of cause and effect – food choices are the most significant cause of disease and premature death. -Joel Fuhrman

I hate the technological rip-offs that pass for music formats these days, and go back to vinyl to hear a good record because the sound is always so much fuller. I don't even like listening to music in the car. -John Lydon

I have this almost pathological fear of boring the reader. -Khaled Hosseini

When it comes to the real operational issues that govern our understanding of physical reality, ontological definitions of classical philosophers are, in my opinion, sterile. -Lawrence M. Krauss

I have always felt that, aside from research that violates universal human mores, when it comes to technological applications, that which can be done will be done. -Lawrence M. Krauss

There is something so biologically implausible that your attitude is going to cure a disease. There's a tremendous arrogance to imagine that your mind is all that powerful. -Marcia Angell

The Industrial Age is not sustainable. It's not sustainable in ecological terms, and it's not sustainable in human terms. -Peter Senge

I believe you have to keep the theological standard high; the Lord said, 'Be perfect,' and the leaders have to be striving for that standard with all there is in them. -Adrian Rogers

The theological virtue of hope is the patient and trustful willingness to live without closure, without resolution, and still be content and even happy because our Satisfaction is now at another level, and our Source is beyond ourselves. -Richard Rohr

Facebook is not ideologically neutral. In fact, it emerges from a very particular world view which we can trace back to Hobbes. I discovered this by examining the profile of Zuckerberg's fellow board members who, unlike him, are a very interesting bunch and, I suspect, the real power behind the poster boy. -Tom Hodgkinson

The science of morality is about maximizing psychological and social health. It's really no more inflammatory than that. -Sam Harris

To a degree, the Greek and Roman mythological heroes are just the first superheroes. They appeal to children for much the same reason. These gods and heroes may have powers, but they get angry and they do the wrong thing. They are human too. -Rick Riordan

I've been reading Greek mythology since I was a kid. I also taught it when I was a sixth grade teacher, so I knew a lot of mythological monsters already. Sometimes I still use books and Web sites to research, though. Every time I research Greek mythology, I learn something new! -Rick Riordan

I don't like to do too much psychological research because it might turn a character into a patchwork. -Sara Zarr

Green exercise improves psychological health. -Richard Louv

In the grip of a neurological disorder, I am fast losing control of words even as my relationship with the world has been reduced to them. -Tony Judt

When we assess the impact of technological changes, we tend to downplay things that happened a while ago. -Ha-Joon Chang

I'm serenely convinced that we are heading into what will amount to a 'time out' from technological progress as we know it. -James Howard Kunstler

What's true for churches is true for other institutions: the older and more organized they get, the less adaptable they become. That's why the most resilient things in our world – biological life, stock markets, the Internet – are loosely organized. -Gary Hamel

When an employee asks why the company does things a certain way, and you can explain the logical reason, then the employee knows what she's doing is valid. -Harvey Mackay

The cost of praising someone is nil – but every psychological study shows the payoff is huge. -Harvey Mackay

You know, every year 'Torchwood' has become something a little different than it was before. It's still sci-fi, but it doesn't just deal with spaceships and aliens all the time, because we've done that. Our science fiction is more psychological. -John Barrowman

I feel very protective in the first draft, when all the pieces are coming together. I work in a way that is not linear or chronological at all, even with the short story. I will just be writing bits and pieces, and then when I have all the pieces on the table, that for me is when it feels like the real work begins. -Jill McCorkle

'Pathological liar' is absolutely the toughest individual to deal with as a psychiatrist. Because you can't take anything they say at face value. And you can't, you know, fill in their personality. You don't know what's real and what's not. -Dale Archer

Both poker and investing are games of incomplete information. You have a certain set of facts and you are looking for situations where you have an edge, whether the edge is psychological or statistical. -David Einhorn

It's unfortunate biologically we have to sleep. -Aaron Levie

I tell people not to write too soon about their lives. Writing about yourself too young is loaded with psychological complexities. -Mary Karr

I'd like to think life has improved since 1850, despite the long hours we all seem to spend slaving over hot computers, but the psychological journeys remain the same – the search for love, identity, a meaningful place in the world. -Meg Rosoff

Evangelicalism as a movement is rushing headlong toward theological ambiguity, which is another way of saying apostasy. -Michael Horton

I work in a very tough area of Britain. There is not much hope sociologically where I live and work, they're all sorts of conditions of poverty and deprivation and so on, I really do believe that the message of the kingdom of God is for places like this. -N. T. Wright

If I ask you to write down the last 4 digits of your social security number, and then take you out to lunch and ask you how many dentists there are in Manhattan, there's going to be a high correlation between those two numbers. What happens is that the number psychologically makes you feel confident. -Nassim Nicholas Taleb

If students get a sound education in the history, social effects and psychological biases of technology, they may grow to be adults who use technology rather than be used by it. -Neil Postman

We are a profoundly interconnected species, as the global economic and ecological crises reveal in vivid and frightening detail. We must embrace the simple fact that we are dependent on and accountable to one another. -Parker Palmer

He was a great man, my granddad, a very calm, logical and methodical guy. I suppose I'm trying to be more like him as I get older. -Steven Hall

Civilisations have been destroyed many times, and this civilisation is no different. It can be destroyed. We can think of time in terms of millions of years and life will resume little by little. The cosmos operates for us very urgently, but geological time is different. -Thich Nhat Hanh

I was a litigation lawyer. That's all very logical. Become a litigation lawyer. Become successful. Have a nice office. But there was some pull inside of me saying, self-publish this book. I followed that intuition and it's been a great choice for me in my life. -Robin S. Sharma

Of strong importance to me is the defense of minority rights, not just racial minorities, but ideological and religious minorities. -Rand Paul

Technological transformations give you the chance to set up new and ambitious ventures. That's what I did with FastWeb and that is what we are doing with Babelgum. This is much more than TV because we are making the content available all across the world and you have an open platform with freedom of choice. -Silvio Scaglia

I enjoy ritual and ceremony. What I don't like is when it's badly done or sloppily done. This is actually a theological issue – the forms we adopt, the actions we take, the way we do things, are, as it were, a sacrament. -Peter Hollingworth

My favorite types of movies to watch as a viewer are thrillers – I really have a soft spot for them, I love them. Especially psychological thrillers. -Alex Karpovsky

I try to write characters that are as real, emotionally and psychologically, as I can make them; I feel the same way about setting. This often means that I'm drawing from my experiences and observations. -Lauren Oliver

I think we're all fascinated and a little mystified by how the brain works. One of the most mysterious of the physical sciences is neurological science. -Alexis Denisof

I wanted a baby of color, to be honest, because I wasn't attached to the idea that I look like the biological mother. I liked the idea of the adoption being clear; it was and is not something I am interested in hiding. -Jennifer Gilmore

It is perfectly evident to any logical mind that when you have got the vote, by the proper use of the vote in sufficient numbers, by combination, you can get out of any legislature whatever you want, or, if you cannot get it, you can send them about their business and choose other people who will be more attentive to your demands. -Emmeline Pankhurst

I know when I grew up, it was, if it was daylight outside, get outside. Well, now, with the technological age of computers and everything, everyone's inside virtually going everywhere they want to go, virtually having relationships, virtually traveling across the neighborhood, virtually going to that island. -Matthew McConaughey

I think 'The Walking Dead' is very interestingly paced. It's slow, almost like an old Western. It's also very stylised – visually, I think it's very pretty. It's more of a psychological drama than anything else. -Tania Raymonde

Female adolescence is – universally – an emotionally and psychologically intense period. -Caitlin Flanagan

Pubescent girls, it seems, are manifestly more likely to exhibit extreme and bizarre psychological symptoms than are teenage boys. -Caitlin Flanagan

The mistrust of government that blossomed in the late '60s has become a chronic and in some ways pathological condition. -Kurt Andersen

Precisely because intelligent design does not turn the study of biological origins into a Bible-science controversy, intelligent design is a position around which Christians of all stripes can unite. -William A. Dembski

Intelligent design is a modest position theologically and philosophically. It attributes the complexity and diversity of life to intelligence, but does not identify that intelligence with the God of any religious faith or philosophical system. -William A. Dembski

The world of religion isn't a logical world; that's why children like it. It's a world of worked-out fantasies, very similar to children's stories or fairy tales. -Yehuda Amichai

I think of my poems as personal and public at the same time. You could say they serve as psychological overlays. One fits on top of the other, and hopefully there's an ongoing evolution of clarity. -Yusef Komunyakaa

I think it's important for all culturally literate people to understand the technological substrate of new developments. -Hari Kunzru

I wanted to explore cancer not just biologically, but metaphorically. The idea that tuberculosis in the 19th century possessed the same kind of frightening and decaying quality was very interesting to me, and it seemed that one could explore the idea that every age defined its own illness. -Siddhartha Mukherjee

There is a duality in recognising what an incredible disease it is – in terms of its origin, that it emerges out of a normal cell. It's a reminder of what a wonderful thing a normal cell is. In a very cold, scientific sense, I think a cancer cell is a kind of biological marvel. -Siddhartha Mukherjee

We don't know why, but pancreatic cancer has a very interesting physiological link to depression. There seems to be a deep link, and we don't know what it is. -Siddhartha Mukherjee

Einstein wrestled with a problem back before we even knew the universe was expanding, and he was looking for a way to keep the universe from collapsing. And so he discovered, in his theory of gravity, something like this dark energy – he called it a cosmological constant – could play this role, pushing things away. -Adam Riess

For me, no ideological or political conviction would justify the sacrifice of a human life. For me, the value of life is absolute, with no concessions. It's not negotiable. -Edgar Ramirez

When I write my books, actually, I'm known for very logical rule-based magic systems. I write with one foot in fantasy and one foot in science fiction. -Brandon Sanderson

I'm interested in Scotland now and then, how it's changed. I want to get the reader to think about that by thinking about something from the past. How has society changed, how has policing changed, have we changed philosophically, psychologically, culturally, spiritually? -Ian Rankin

My photography is often a sociological look at American culture, and it's been very well published in the U.K. -Lauren Greenfield

I am not alone in thinking that we are at a tipping point ecologically and morally and politically. Democracy cannot survive without a vibrant middle class, yet the policies of one of the parties has been committed to wiping it out for 30 years. -Deborah Kass

Genetically, I'm pure Greek. Psychologically, environmentally, culturally, by choice, I'm a member of the black community. -Johnny Otis

Psychoanalysts have been occupied for a long time with the difficult question of what the psychological conditions are which determine the form of the neurotic disease to which the individual will succumb. It is as though he had a choice between different illnesses and led by unknown impulses selected one or other of them. -Karl Abraham

I know that Wes Craven feels watching horror films does have a psychological effect, in a good way. It is very cathartic. He might be right about that. -Marley Shelton

All research in the cultural sciences in an age of specialization, once it is oriented towards a given subject matter through particular settings of problems and has established its methodological principles, will consider the analysis of the data as an end in itself. -Max Weber

If you wish to know how libertarians regard the State and any of its acts, simply think of the State as a criminal band, and all of the libertarian attitudes will logically fall into place. -Murray Rothbard

The consciousness of lucid dreaming is a cultural evolution. It's something that we are talking about and learning about, not biological evolution. -Stephen LaBerge

All I do is look, listen and try to make sense of what I find, in biological terms. -Lyall Watson

I've never really understood people who climb socially by sucking up. It seems like the least efficient way to climb, and also the most psychologically debilitating. -Nick Denton

One of the things that I love to do is travel around the world and look at archaeological sites. Because archaeology gives us an opportunity to study past civilizations, and see where they succeeded and where they failed. Use science to, you know, work backwards and say, 'Well, really, what were they thinking?' -Nathan Myhrvold

The techniques of being an Internet visionary are just like those of lower-tech fortunetellers through the ages. A technological visionary must tell people what they want to hear, because your company's stock won't rise if you spout an unpopular vision to analysts. -Nathan Myhrvold

Technological 'revolutions' don't really overthrow anything – they simply append a new and dynamic market to that which went before. -Nathan Myhrvold
