Chess is mental torture. -Garry Kasparov

For me, winning isn't something that happens suddenly on the field when the whistle blows and the crowds roar. Winning is something that builds physically and mentally every day that you train and every night that you dream. -Emmitt Smith

I've done a lot of basketball drills, not a whole lot of competitive stuff. I have basically been in the gym everyday working on my game, working on the time off that I've had from the game, just getting myself prepared mentally and physically for the season. -Grant Hill

People don't realize the amount of stress you put on your body both physically and mentally from just the wear and tear of a season. -Grant Hill

When we criticize in Iran the actions of the government, the fundamentalists say that we and the Bush Administration are in the same camp. The funny thing is that human rights activists and Mr. Bush can never be situated in the same group. -Shirin Ebadi

To be sure, debates will linger about whether Medicare is too large or too small. Debates remain about the allocation of Medicare dollars. But December 8, 2003, demonstrated that there is no debate about this most fundamental fact: Medicare must survive. -Michael Johns

I always say that I don't want to be sentimental, that the photographs shouldn't be sentimental, and yet, I am conscious of my sentimentality. -Robert Frank

The ability to reduce everything to simple fundamental laws does not imply the ability to start from those laws and reconstruct the universe. -Philip Warren Anderson

I have been thinking about the notion of perfect love as being without fear, and what that means for us in a world that's becoming increasingly xenophobic, tortured by fundamentalism and nationalism. -bell hooks

I think it makes people in the Pentagon kind of nervous to know that chemical agents and environmental factors could cause so much damage in terms of what may happen in the future. -Bernie Sanders

I regard Christian and Jewish fundamentalism, and all other forms of fundamentalism, as the enemies of God – and I hope you'll quote me on that. -Arthur Hertzberg

Jewish fundamentalism is teaching that Jews can fight with guns and with civil war, against being relocated off the West Bank, and disobey the orders of their government. That is the call to jihad, to several kinds of jihad. -Arthur Hertzberg

In the beginning, I was searching for myself in my music. My music was for me. I didn't have the mental room to be conscious of the listener; I wrote to save myself. -Ayumi Hamasaki

If the right to privacy means anything, it is the right of the individual, married or single, to be free from unwarranted governmental intrusion. -William J. Brennan, Jr.

Humanity lives and always has lived on certain elemental provisions. -Charles Wagner

I discovered that in a story I could safely dream any dream, hope any hope, go anywhere I pleased any time I pleased, fight any foe, win or lose, live or die. My stories created a safe experimental learning place. -Donald Davis

After all my years of doing instrumental music I still like just a simple instrumental song with a nice catchy melody and an opportunity to play a solo over a harmonic structure. -Stanley Clarke

This campaign was special because we always kept the challenger mentality we had from the start. We managed to keep the against-all-odds, can-do spirit that kept us going when no one thought we could win. -Geoff Davis

The Spirit communicating to your spirit is the most effective and fundamental of communications. Write it down. As you write down impressions of the Spirit, more are given. -Richard G. Scott

One of the grand fundamental principles of Mormonism is to receive truth, let it come from whence it may. -Joseph Smith, Jr.

I didn't want to do a zoo show. I didn't want to do a study of someone with mental illness. I just wanted to show someone who was trying to live their life. -Daniel Craig

The freedoms that people have that flow from all civic institutions fundamentally come from the success of a market system. -Lee R. Raymond

Is it experimental to have been influenced by the Bible? By Saint Augustine? -Marguerite Young

I think I had actually served my apprenticeship as a writer of fiction by writing all those songs. I had already been through phases of autobiographical or experimental stuff. -Kazuo Ishiguro

Autism is the fastest growing developmental disability in our nation. -Mary Bono

Each man has an equal social right to multiply his power of motion by all the social factors of civilization. Private property in any of these factors is inconsistent with this fundamental right; it must, obviously, prove a source of economic despotism and industrial slavery. -Daniel De Leon

A very Faustian choice is upon us: whether to accept our corrosive and risky behavior as the unavoidable price of population and economic growth, or to take stock of ourselves and search for a new environmental ethic. -E. O. Wilson

People are not fundamentally bad. It only takes the smallest of correctives to take care of that tiny minority that wants to disrupt the community. -Jimmy Wales

It is practically impossible to teach good programming to students that have had a prior exposure to BASIC: as potential programmers they are mentally mutilated beyond hope of regeneration. -Edsger Dijkstra

There are a tremendous amount of environmental issues that are on the table. -Ed Rendell

The development of new instrumental and vocal idioms has been one of the remarkable phenomena of recent music. -George Crumb

When an idea exclusively occupies the mind, it is transformed into an actual physical or mental state. -Swami Vivekananda

I don't run a car, have never run a car. I could say that this is because I have this extremely tender environmentalist conscience, but the fact is I hate driving. -David Attenborough

The fundamental issue is the moral issue. -David Attenborough

All we can hope for is that the thing is going to slowly and imperceptibly shift. All I can say is that 50 years ago there were no such thing as environmental policies. -David Attenborough

The fundamental problem for Republicans when it comes to the environment is that whatever you say is viewed through the prism of suspicion. -Frank Luntz

The most important environmental issue is one that is rarely mentioned, and that is the lack of a conservation ethic in our culture. -Gaylord Nelson

Instrumental music is increasingly marginalized and there's just no outlet, there's no venue for it, in terms of media. -David Sanborn

In times of life crisis, whether wild fires or smoldering stress, the first thing I do is go back to basics… am I eating right, am I getting enough sleep, am I getting some physical and mental exercise everyday. -Edward Albert

Because even at the age of fifteen, I used to go see all the Broadway shows and feel that they were sentimental, that they were pandering to the audience and trying to manipulate the audience. I had no use for practically any of the shows that were hits. -Richard Foreman

The book is there for inspiration and as a foundation, the fundamentals on which to build. -Thomas Keller

I enjoy being Jewish, but I'm an atheist… I hate fundamentalism in all its forms. Jews, Catholics, Baptists, I think they are all potty and capable of destroying the world. -Warren Mitchell

Because of recent improvements in the accuracy of theoretical predictions based on large scale ab initio quantum mechanical calculations, meaningful comparisons between theoretical and experimental findings have become possible. -Yuan T. Lee

Despite my emphasis on technology, I do not view laws as inherently evil. My goals are political ones, even if my techniques are not. The only way to fundamentally succeed is by changing existing laws. If I rejected all help from the political arena I would inevitably fail. -Bram Cohen

I think perhaps the most important problem is that we are trying to understand the fundamental workings of the universe via a language devised for telling one another when the best fruit is. -Terry Pratchett

But the more we search the Scriptures, the more we perceive, in this doctrine, the fundamental truth of the gospel – that truth which gives to redemption its character, and to all other truths their real power. -John Nelson Darby

I think I was given a gift to play golf and to be mentally strong. -Karrie Webb

I think if you are writing an instrumental you are dealing with more of an aesthetic in a sense but a lyric is more of a putting yourself on the line and a much more expensive exercise. -Leo Kottke

The bulk of my set is instrumental and you have to give yourself and the audience some relief because a performance is not about great guitar playing it's really about entertainment. -Leo Kottke

All the big powers they've silenced me. So much for free speech and choice on this fundamental human right. -Jack Kevorkian

It's the boredom that kills you. You read until you're tired of that. You do crossword puzzles until you're tired of that. This is torture. This is mental torture. -Jack Kevorkian

It was not about losing my mental power; it's about not feeling good about my contribution to the game. -Garry Kasparov

If we know there is enough money in there for nine or ten months, we won't worry too much. They can come back and get more-not all they want, but a large piece of it. So you always have the supplemental as a safety valve. -John William McCormack

We cannot suppose therefore that God has made an order of beings, with such mental qualities and powers, for the sole purpose of being used as beasts, or instruments of labour. -Thomas Clarkson

I think a lot of people have a misconception of what the kitchen is about, but you know the grueling part of it is also the pleasure of it. That's why I think you have to have a certain mentality to understand what that is and be able to handle it. -Todd English

We shall be forced to attempt planned and directed research employing hundreds of workers for many years, and this cannot be done without risking the loss of independence and originality. This is a serious and fundamental obstacle but it may be overcome in two ways. -John Desmond Bernal

But my point is that you design something in the end that precludes any unhealthy trading practices that are not going to serve your environmental or your economic objectives but now is not the time to do it. -John Anderson

For the Archivist, this role is a result of his obligation to preserve and assure timely and maximum access to our governmental records in the evolving historic saga of the American people. -Allen Weinstein

What I wanted to do was play the guitar but I don't like instrumental rock. I think it is tripe. -Andy Summers

As to the mental essence, we find it in infants devoid of every mental form. -Avicenna

This assumption of Negro leadership in the ghetto, then, must not be confined to matters of religion, education, and social uplift; it must deal with such fundamental forces in life as make these things possible. -Carter G. Woodson

We learned that economic growth and environmental protection can and should go hand in hand. -Christopher Dodd

As I have pointed out, it is the Christian tradition that is the most fundamental element in Western culture. It lies at the base not only of Western religion, but also of Western morals and Western social idealism. -Christopher Dawson

Our species is on the verge of changes that will fundamentally alter what it means to be human… and we are the people driving that change. -Daniel Keys Moran

Thus the races, though alike in their physical response to climate, may possibly be different in their mental response because they have approached America by different paths. -Ellsworth Huntington

What a thing is and what it means are not separate, the former being physical and the latter mental as we are accustomed to believe. -James J. Gibson

For me the much more significant question is what did the Americans do, if anything, to help the Croatian army, because they are the ones that changed fundamentally the map of Bosnia, not the Bosnian army. -John Pomfret

New situations requiring closer contact with the rabbit had been gradually introduced and the degree to which these situations were avoided, tolerated, or welcomed, at each experimental session, gave the measure of improvement. -Mary C. Jones

That is basically me, and although I have done many things in my life – conducting, playing piano, and so on – what is fundamental is my being a composer. -Morton Gould

In 1970, I had begun work on the basic pancreatic trypsin inhibitor which has later become the model compound for the development of protein NMR, molecular dynamics, and experimental folding studies in other laboratories. -Robert Huber

About 1960, it became clear that it was best for me to bring the experimental part of my research program to a close – there was too much to do on the theoretical aspects – and I began the process of winding down the experiments. -Rudolph A. Marcus

Life would be indeed easier if the experimentalists would only pause for a little while! -Rudolph A. Marcus

The Long Island Sound is an environmentally unique estuary that needs to be protected. -Tim Bishop

Instrumental music can spread the international language. -Herb Alpert

And it raises a fundamental question: How long can we move the world in one direction while we move in another direction, and do we want to backslide into an era that we finally emerged from where we had a nuclear weapon for every tactical mission? -John Spratt

We do, and there is a law in the United States – the Torture Convention – that prohibits the United States from deporting an individual to a country where there is a reasonable expectation that he will be subjected to torture – physical, mental or otherwise. -Jonathan Shapiro

But, in the name of the experimental method and out of our poor knowledge, are we really entitled to claim that everything happens by chance, to the exclusion of all other possibilities? -Albert Claude

There are congressmen in our congregation, judges, federal reserve governors. And there are also people who are homeless and some who are mentally ill. To be able to talk to each of those people is something that I've had to learn how to do over the years. -James Green Somerville

The fundamental problem with vi is that it doesn't have a mouse and therefore you've got all these commands. -Bill Joy

In the Constitution of the American Republic there was a deliberate and very extensive and emphatic division of governmental power for the very purpose of preventing unbridled majority rule. -Robert W. Welch, Jr.

I wanted to give readers the feeling of knowing the characters, a mental image. -Michael Chabon

It's always better to speak the language of the team. Not only for the direct contact with everyone – sometimes it also helps you to understand the mentality of the people in the team a bit better. -Alain Prost

I like the mentality of the Americans. It's like when you talk about money. -Alain Prost

Sometimes I think I could have got some better results if I had a different mentality; if I could have pushed hard and attacked. But then I would have had a good chance of making a mistake. -Alain Prost

I have always had this mentality because I hated to break anything on the car. -Alain Prost

Instead of generating either unnecessary alarm or a false sense of security regarding these fundamental issues, the best course is to empower people with the truth. -Dick Thornburgh

One of Alaska's strengths is our pioneer role in environmentally sensitive development. -Frank Murkowski

Being a purely instrumental album, it makes a musical statement, not a religious one, and I hope that people can feel the emotion of the great melodies, even without the words. -Kenny G

We have always wanted to write songs and be experimental in that way. -Mike Lowry

When I did Inherit the Wind, I learned about teaching school. I also found out what a fundamentalist was. -Dick York

While the Environmental Genome Project does not seek to assign allele frequencies, we are aware of the importance of accurate allele frequency estimates for future epidemiologic studies and the large sample sizes such estimates will require. -Samuel Wilson

It is important to consider whether the sample size selected by the Environmental Genome Project will provide sufficient power to discover most alleles relevant to gene-environment interactions. -Samuel Wilson

One of the responsibilities faced by the Environmental Genome Project is to provide the science base upon which society can make better informed risk management decisions. -Samuel Wilson

We all recognize that in recent decades, many important achievements have helped create a cleaner, healthier environment, yet our national needs in environmental health are not being fully met. -Samuel Wilson

The infrastructure for linking environmental health and public health is not working as well as it should. -Samuel Wilson

Things are still in early stages, but one can imagine that as we build up and systematize our theories of these associations, and try to boil them down to their core, the result might point us toward the sort of fundamental principles I advocate. -David Chalmers

It's less about the physical training, in the end, than it is about the mental preparation: boxing is a chess game. You have to be skilled enough and have trained hard enough to know how many different ways you can counterattack in any situation, at any moment. -Jimmy Smits

So you have to be more mentally focused in baseball. -Bo Jackson

So, baseball is probably more physical of the two mentally. -Bo Jackson

Nowhere more truly than in his mental capacities is man a part of nature. -Edward Thorndike

The un-conscious distortion of the facts is almost harmless compared to the unconscious neglect of an animal's mental life until it verges on the unusual and marvelous. -Edward Thorndike

In all our associations; in all our agreements let us never lose sight of this fundamental maxim – that all power was originally lodged in, and consequently is derived from, the people. -George Mason

I tell fundamentalists that there is no question of them attacking our Republic's foundations. -Jean-Pierre Raffarin

The transfer is a monumental occasion as the Iraqi people take control of their government and their future and forge ahead with creating a society governed by the tenets of life, liberty and freedom. -Jim Gerlach

The men and women of our armed forces played an instrumental role in the election process – securing polling sites and providing security – that allowed so many Iraqis the opportunity to vote freely for the first time ever. -John M. McHugh

The study also included the disturbing revelation that most of the troops who reported having mental health problems also reported that they did not seek or did not receive care for their problems. -John M. McHugh

We are particularly interested in the mental health programs and policies that support our troops and their families before, during, and after deployment to Iraq and Afghanistan. -John M. McHugh

In Manhattan, and its true on some level till this day; its a whole different mentality from the Bronx, Brooklyn and Queens, which I didn't know at the time – because you basically just know your neighborhood. -Kool Moe Dee

That we have children coming into this world already polluted, at the same time we don't know what the effects of that pollution will be on their mental and physical development, is both bad policy and immorally wrong. -Louise Slaughter

It is a shock to us in the twentieth century to discover, from observations science has made, that the fundamental mechanisms of life cannot be ascribed to natural selection, and therefore were designed. But we must deal with our shock as best we can and go on. -Michael Behe

Doing the instrumental thing, you're really looking for the power of the melody to carry the record. -Michael W. Smith

Radical Islamic fundamentalists harbor contempt for our democratic way of life and, given the opportunity, will stop at nothing to accomplish their goal of bringing our country to its knees. -Paul Weyrich

And before I'd got to the end of the first paragraph, I'd come up slap bang against a fundamental problem that still troubles me today whenever I begin a story, and it's this: where am I telling it from? -Philip Pullman

I've always wanted to improve on the idea of living well, In moderation, wine is good for you – mentally, physically, and spiritually. -Robert Mondavi

The Church is the new creation, it is life and joy, it is the sacramental fellowship in which we share the ultimate purpose of God, made real for us now in our hearing the Word and sharing the Sacrament. -Rowan Williams

We did that with people like Chris Rock, Woody Harrelson, and the environmentalist Julia Butterfly Hill. -Anthony Kiedis

I don't have the energy or the mental security to get involved with all that. I think it's a good idea to be able to disappear into the story, so that the first thing the audience sees isn't you, but the part. -Jeremy Northam

Experimental high energy physics research is a group effort. I have been very fortunate to have had outstanding students and colleagues who have made invaluable contributions to the research with which I have been associated. -Jerome Isaac Friedman

I am certain more emergency supplemental bills will be needed before this process is concluded. In fact, there is a point I have repeated several times recently which keeps the enormity of this situation in perspective. -Jo Bonner

There is one final point I would like to make this week. As I said on the floor of the House during deliberation of this latest supplemental, hope is something Americans should never lose. Let each of us, both by our words and actions, continue to provide that hope. -Jo Bonner

I always admired Walt's optimism. He seemed to know the direction he was going to. When I was at the studio, I remember he kept driving all of us back down to a more fundamental level all the time. -John Hench

We were all so different, temperamentally from one another, it's impossible to believe that we were together for so long. The cast and crew. How could we be more different from one another? It's difficult to imagine. But something lovely came of it. -Madeleine Stowe

Technology is similarly just a catalyst at times for fundamental forces already present. -Scott Cook

If Baltimore's view, that scientists who do not take the words of authorities are far removed from the ordinary behavior of scientists, prevails in the scientific community, then something fundamental, very serious, and very disturbing is happening to the scientific community. -Serge Lang

I have a bad reputation for being temperamental. -Ted Kotcheff

Because there is actually something very interesting in Goodfellas, how the style of the film changes as time goes by and based on the mental state of the protagonist. -Alex Cox

My entry into the environmental arena was through the issue that so dramatically – and destructively – demonstrates the link between science and social action: nuclear weapons. -Barry Commoner

The environmental crisis arises from a fundamental fault: our systems of production – in industry, agriculture, energy and transportation – essential as they are, make people sick and die. -Barry Commoner

In every case, the environmental hazards were made known only by independent scientists, who were often bitterly opposed by the corporations responsible for the hazards. -Barry Commoner

Environmental concern is now firmly embedded in public life: in education, medicine and law; in journalism, literature and art. -Barry Commoner

Earth Day 1970 was irrefutable evidence that the American people understood the environmental threat and wanted action to resolve it. -Barry Commoner

By adopting the control strategy, the nation's environmental program has created a built-in antagonism between environmental quality and economic growth. -Barry Commoner

Environmental quality was drastically improved while economic activity grew by the simple expedient of removing lead from gasoline – which prevented it from entering the environment. -Barry Commoner

What is new is that environmentalism intensely illuminates the need to confront the corporate domain at its most powerful and guarded point – the exclusive right to govern the systems of production. -Barry Commoner

The wave of new productive enterprises would provide opportunities to remedy the unjust distribution of environmental hazards among economic classes and racial and ethnic communities. -Barry Commoner

The most meaningful engine of change, powerful enough to confront corporate power, may be not so much environmental quality, as the economic development and growth associated with the effort to improve it. -Barry Commoner

The environmental crisis is a global problem, and only global action will resolve it. -Barry Commoner

We have groups that do that, but I can't rap with the mentality of an 18 year old when I'm in my 30's. -Ice T

But it is obvious that our fathers, whose efforts have planted these great and prosperous cities along the once lonely trails of our own broad land, received all the fundamentals of civilization as a heritage from their European ancestors. -James Henry Breasted

I believe that all of us are born heterosexual, physically created with a plumbing that's heterosexual, and created with the instincts and desires that are basically, fundamentally, heterosexual. -Jerry Falwell

And, these Islamic fundamentalists, these radical terrorists, these Middle Eastern monsters are committed to destroying the Jewish nation, driving her into the Mediterranean, conquering the world. -Jerry Falwell

We should restore a proper balance in environmental regulation and energy production that is based on common sense, not political agendas. -Mac Thornberry

I still favor alternatives to governmental race-based preferences. -Marvin Olasky

Since governmental quotas expand bureaucratic power, provoke a backlash and are unfair to individuals, we need to find a better way to increase minority opportunities. -Marvin Olasky

If I can't get a mental image from the song, I won't sing it. -Namie Amuro

I don't see this planet being… they're talking about how they're turning around the environmental problems here, but I think it's already too late. -Ace Frehley

We have a project with Unocal here in Los Angeles, where we as an environmental organization, the oil company, and the state all get together to promote the recycling of used motor oil. -Ted Danson

We're not trying to reinvent the wheel; for any environmental organization to claim sole responsibility for any kind of victory is insane, because everybody attacks these problems as a group. -Ted Danson

The environmental movement, like all political processes, reacts best to disasters. But these are very slow, very gradual disasters in the making. -Ted Danson

Address these environmental issues and you will address every issue known to man. And we keep dabbling in things that aren't really that important in the long term. -Ted Danson

I was one of those people who put too much emphasis on work and career and material possessions, and it took its toll on all my relationships, on my physical health, my emotional and mental health. -Tony Shalhoub

I don't pay attention to target audiences and therefore I often hear that I am a ratings killer, somebody who fundamentally doesn't care whether one person is watching or an entire soccer stadium. -Alexander Kluge

I maintain that if there is such a thing as a true and honest environmentalist, it's people like Slim and hopefully me, who have been caretakers of the land all our lives, along with the generations before us. -Wilford Brimley

I find it very beautiful to work in different countries because I see the mentality differences there. It is so rich, one always carries forward something. -Michelle Hunziker

There were two mentalities, and both mentalities had to change. There was what I called the Afrikaner mind set of the Unionist politicians, which was holding all power in their own hands, and discriminating, and their objective was to protect their identity. -John Hume

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

They're trying to tell us that we're not right, so we have to buy their products. The number one cause of mental illness is not knowing who you are and you can't know who you are if you don't spend time honoring yourself, and living in the present. -Naomi Judd

I have long recognized a link between fitness and mental health and I think we need to encourage young people to take part in sports and team activities because we know it has such positive results. -Tipper Gore

You have this mounting aggressive ignorance with the rabbit's foot of their particular religion. You don't really have any kind of spiritual law, just a kind of a rabid mental illness. The songs are a little slice of life. -Joni Mitchell

I lay a lot of blame at the feet of Dusty Baker for not being more strict about fundamentals, which I think would give the team a stronger day-to-day identity. -Billy Corgan

To the fantastic mental illness of Rationalism, hard facts are regrettable things, and to talk about them is to create them. -Francis Parker Yockey

For me, literature is a complex game, both mental and concrete, which is acted out in a physical manner on the page. -Guillermo Cabrera Infante

We see that every external motion, act, gesture, whether voluntary or mechanical, organic or mental, is produced and preceded by internal feeling or emotion, will or volition, and thought or mind. -Helena Blavatsky

I reflect back 35 years ago, and look how far we have come in America with our environmental policy to improve the conditions of our air and water, and we have had some real successes. -Jay Inslee

We had some major successes and we did so because the country embraced the spirit of Earth Day and embraced this concept that we have to have forward-looking, visionary environmental policy and energy policy in this country. -Jay Inslee

Since I started composing I have always worked with series of tempos, even superimposed the music of different groups of musicians, of singers, instrumentalists who play and sing in different tempos simultaneously and then meet every now and then in the same tempo. -Karlheinz Stockhausen

I see all this and know that if we are to save the Jewish state and its three-and-a-half million Jews from terrible horrors, we must rise up and demand a fundamental change in the very system of government. -Meir Kahane

I played with Annika today. I love being paired with her. She does not make many mental mistakes, and she has the ability to repeat her swing over and over and wears people down. -Natalie Gulbis

Fundamentally, I believe that the U.S. can improve its international standing and its national security by expanding trade and strengthening its relationships with moderate Muslim countries. -Richard Neal

But I believe we have a higher level of mentality within us, but we have to use the power in the right way. -Tina Turner

The thing is, I don't believe in most of what's done. The amount of financial and imaginative energy that's put into mediocrity is just amazing which I find to be fundamentally offensive as a human being. -William Hurt

I also believe that it is time to begin the fundamental analysis of how we got here, what led us here and what we need to do in order to ensure that we are equipped with the best possible intelligence as we face these issues in the future. -David Kay

I think the aim – and certainly the aim of what I've tried to do since leaving – is not political and certainly not a witch hunt at individuals. It's to try to direct our attention at what I believe is a fundamental fault analysis that we must now examine. -David Kay

The fact that it wasn't tells me that we've got a much more fundamental problem of understanding what went wrong, and we've got to figure out what was there. And that's what I call fundamental fault analysis. -David Kay

Woman must have her freedom, the fundamental freedom of choosing whether or not she will be a mother and how many children she will have. Regardless of what man's attitude may be, that problem is hers – and before it can be his, it is hers alone. -Margaret Sanger

Although my book is banned I am still allowed to go to China and travel. There is no longer the kind of control that Mao used to have-there have been deep fundamental changes in society. -Jung Chang

I like the outdoors and the natural world. Environmental issues. -Mackenzie Crook

When I put my nose in a glass, it's like tunnel vision. I move into another world, where everything around me is just gone, and every bit of mental energy is focused on that wine. -Robert M. Parker, Jr.

I don't know if I was a desirable person, not just physically but emotionally and mentally and intellectually. I still have a long way go and a lot to learn, but I'm on my way, I don't think I'm terribly attractive, but I'm comfortable with my looks. -Shelley Duvall

Abstraction is a mental process we use when trying to discern what is essential or relevant to a problem; it does not require a belief in abstract entities. -Tom G. Palmer

What libertarians assert is simply that differences among normal adults do not imply different fundamental rights. -Tom G. Palmer

Libertarians recognize the difference between adults and children, as well as differences between normal adults and adults who are insane or mentally hindered or retarded. -Tom G. Palmer

Complexity is one of the great problems in environmental design. -Christopher Alexander

The fundamental point in fabricating a chain reacting machine is of course to see to it that each fission produces a certain number of neutrons and some of these neutrons will again produce fission. -Enrico Fermi

When prayer removes distrust and doubt and enters the field of mental certainty, it becomes faith; and the universe is built on faith. -Ernest Holmes

As we know from the work of certain fundamental physicists, people like Einstein were very dependent upon conjuring up visual images in order to imagine things which otherwise were not easily formulated. -Jonathan Miller

The claim that the World Trade Center and the Pentagon were attacked because fundamentalists hate our prosperity and freedom is a ridiculous lie. -L. Neil Smith

The pool is terrible, but that doesn't have much to do with my record swims. That's all mental attitude. -Mark Spitz

This was good training for research, because large parts of experimental work are sometimes boring or involve the use of skills in which one is not particularly gifted. -Martin Lewis Perl

In this country, the health concerns and the environmental concerns are as deep as in Europe. All the surveys show that. But here, we didn't have the cultural dimension. This is a fast-food culture. -Jeremy Rifkin

The position I took at the time was that we hadn't really examined any of the potential environmental consequences of introducing genetically modified organisms. -Jeremy Rifkin

We are making the fundamental changes. It was like the decent housing target. We said by 2010, we'd have taken a million houses and refurbished them into decent housing. -John Prescott

Away with that folly that her rights would be detrimental to her character – that if she were recognized as the equal to a man she would cease to be a woman! -Ernestine Rose

A lesser but still fundamental rule of racing is that you properly enter the event. Anyone who doesn't but still insists on running interferes with the paying customers. -Joe Henderson

More fundamentally, it is a dream that does not die with the onset of manhood: the dream is to play endlessly, past the time when you are called home for dinner, past the time of doing chores, past the time when your body betrays you past time itself. -John Thorn

I remember once I read a book on mental illness and there was a nurse that had gotten sick. Do you know what she died from? From worrying about the mental patients not being able to get their food. She became a mental patient. -Ornette Coleman

With this in mind, for some twenty years I have set myself as my particular task the experimental investigation of the connexion between change in the structure and change in the spectra of chemical atoms. -Johannes Stark

If the experimental physicist has already done a great deal of work in this field, nevertheless the theoretical physicist has still hardly begun to evaluate the experimental material which may lead him to conclusions about the structure of the atom. -Johannes Stark

The removal of an electron from the surface of an atom – that is, the ionization of the atom – means a fundamental structural change in its surface layer. -Johannes Stark

As Tony Blair has made clear, our fundamental challenge is how to make Europe work better. -John Hutton

My view is that targets, properly constructed and applied across public services have been fundamental to past successes and will be an essential part of sustaining progress into the future. -John Hutton

Governmental aid is a drawback rather than an assistance, as, although it may facilitate in the routine of artistic production, it is an impediment to the development of true artistic genius. -John Philip Sousa

The second is the structure and source of cults. They have always haunted me, and I wanted to explore the fundamental notion of giving up responsibility to an outside power. -Katherine Dunn

American culture is torn between our long romance with violence and our terror of the devastation wrought by war and crime and environmental havoc. -Katherine Dunn

Whatever their defects, Christian fundamentalists have lived peacefully among us in America for several hundred years. -Maggie Gallagher

Companies that support sports developmental programs in our communities should also be applauded. -Mary Lou Retton

The fundamental laws necessary for the mathematical treatment of a large part of physics and the whole of chemistry are thus completely known, and the difficulty lies only in the fact that application of these laws leads to equations that are too complex to be solved. -Paul Dirac

I have in later years taken to Euclid, Whitehead, Bertrand Russell, in an elemental way. -Carl Sandburg

I believe every one of us possesses a fundamental right to tell our own story. -Joyce Maynard

Beneath all differences of doctrine or discipline there exists a fundamental agreement as to the simple, absolute essentials in religion. -Julia Ward Howe

I prefer the smaller budget versus the bigger budget because the mentality that goes along with big budget filmmaking doesn't really suit me; the mind-set that money is the answer. -Keenen Ivory Wayans

My own nature hovers between neurotic and paranoid. I've developed the habit of mentally listing things that make me optimistic about the future. I do it every day. -Martha Beck

Mankind is considered (by the radical environmentalists) the lowest and the meanest of all species and is blamed for everything. -Dixie Lee Ray

If you can kill animals, the same attitude can kill human beings. The mentality is the same which exploits nature and which creates wars. -Satish Kumar

It is like visiting one's funeral, like visiting loss in its purest and most monumental form, this wild darkness, which is not only unknown but which one cannot enter as oneself. -Harold Brodkey

I assume we will have figured out a way to efficiently utilize solar energy and tied that to an efficient way to use nuclear energy in such a way that it doesn't pose a serious environmental issue. -John Hickenlooper

It was the worst period of my life. I had all this gigantic acceptance as a kid, and all of a sudden there was this monumental rejection. -Tommy Rettig

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

There is no question that photography has played a major role in the environmental movement. -Galen Rowell

These days, most nature photographers are deeply committed to the environmental message. -Galen Rowell

It goes without saying that the desire to accomplish the task with more confidence, to avoid wasting time and labour, and to spare our experimental animals as much as possible, made us strictly observe all the precautions taken by surgeons in respect to their patients. -Ivan Pavlov

I still have the mentality of a 19-year-old mind. -Doyle Brunson

I am concerned about how to reverse the process by which a fundamentalist right and a corporate elite were able to seize power in the United States. -Todd Gitlin

In the course of my stay there, I also showed how one could analyse the experimental kinetic curves for the reaction of haemoglobin with carbon dioxide or oxygen by simulations in the computer, and so fit the rate constants. -Aaron Klug

There are nuclear weapons in China, Iran, Korea and Pakistan. It wouldn't take much to send a couple of warheads off on this planet somewhere that would cause a lot of environmental damage, then if you have got someone who wants to retaliate you have real problems. -Edward James Olmos

It's hard to get a film, you know, you need a very special film to be able to get that experimental. But, I would love to see that happen. I would love the opportunity to be more experimental than I am. -Danny Elfman

I think professional sports, football, to use it as an example, it's fundamentally a form of entertainment. -Gregg Easterbrook

Whichever theory we adopt to give a rational explanation of human existence, that theory must take into account and explain the mental nature we see at work in all modern communities. -Arthur Keith

I actually went to film school and was making experimental films for a short time, so it wasn't such a leap. -Jim Coleman

I was interested in nuclei originally with my deuteron photo work because that was one of the fundamental forces, and the measurement was basic to new science. -John Henry Carver

Although important nuclear physics work was to go on in laboratories such as ours had become – and we had to cut down to a lower energy group – it was not fundamentally opening up new insights on the structure of matter. That required you to be in a higher league. -John Henry Carver

Nuclear power will help provide the electricity that our growing economy needs without increasing emissions. This is truly an environmentally responsible source of energy. -Michael C. Burgess

Although raised on the farm – my grandfather was an unsuccessful fundamentalist preacher turned farmer – my father and his brother both became professors. -Philip Warren Anderson

My strong personal view, which I believe is shared by millions of Americans, is that our party should make a strong statement in its platform that the unborn child has a fundamental right to life which should be protected. -Robert Casey

As for the expected boon to the Mexican economy, we have seen none of these gains, and instead we have seen NAFTA's detrimental impact on the Mexican workers. -Stephen F. Lynch

I had to spend countless hours, above and beyond the basic time, to try and perfect the fundamentals. -Julius Erving

I think I avoid stepping into sentimentality by trying to be as truthful as possible with performances. -Lasse Hallstrom

Palestinian ideology has become a lethal cocktail of radical nationalism and Islamic fundamentalism. -Jack Schwartz

The poet must decide not to impose his feelings in order to write without sentimentality. -John Barton

I never take any notes or draw charts or make elaborate diagrams, but I hold an image of the shape of a book in my head and work from that mental hologram. -Jonathan Lethem

There should be more attention paid to scientific research in the ecology area, and I think that such attention to proper environmental concerns would make the public feel much better about it. -Thomas R. Cech

It's fundamentally unfair to have so much of the tax relief go to so few. And it is a 10-year tax plan rather than one, as mine, focused on the next two years, which in my opinion is the critical time to jumpstart the economy. -Bob Graham

Focusing isn't just an optical activity, it is also a mental one. -Bridget Riley

Maxwell is serious, dedicated, awkward, forgetful, pompous to a certain degree, sentimental. -Don Adams

I think sincerity was my sole aesthetic and realism my experimental technique. -Edmund White

He who lives in the single exercise of his mental faculties, however usefully or curiously directed, is equally an imperfect animal with the man who knows only the exercise of muscles. -Frances Wright

I wanted to help raise awareness, so I created an environmental foundation called Just Within Reach. -Kevin Richardson

A key issue in developmental biology at that time was the problem of how cells underwent differentiation, with most workers concentrating on explanations in terms of changes in enzyme and gene regulation. -Paul Nurse

I had a great time investigating the pigments of different mutant fruit flies by following experimental protocols published in Scientific American, and I also remember making my own beetle collection when it was still acceptable to make such collections. -Paul Nurse

The desire to economize time and mental effort in arithmetical computations, and to eliminate human liability to error is probably as old as the science of arithmetic itself. -Howard Aiken

I didn't want to be on the losing side. I was fed up with Jewish weakness, timidity and fear. I didn't want any more Jewish sentimentality and Jewish suffering. I was sickened by our sad songs. -Lionel Blue

One of the remarkable things about my career is that it has been marked by steady, incremental progress. No sudden spikes up, and no sudden downfalls, either. -Phil Hartman

There is little doubt that we are in the midst of a revolution of a much more profound and fundamental nature than the social and political revolutions of the last half century. -Arthur Erickson

I'm going to be 58, and I'm a woman. In this business, that seems to be a bigger crime than being mentally ill. -Patty Duke

The difference – the fundamental difference between theater acting and film acting is that film acting is disjunctive. -James Lipton

And, as I have said, it's made me think twice about the imagination. If the spirits aren't external, how astonishing the mediums become! Victor Hugo said of his voices that they were like his own mental powers multiplied by five. -James Merrill

I attribute my success to my mental approach to the game. I have always been a serious student of umpiring. I enjoy studying rules, situations, and positioning. -Jim Evans

Not to say that corporations are perfect today, but even grand corporations like Dupont have made immense progress in translating some of their past environmentally damaging practices into new profit opportunities. -Maurice Strong

One of the things that I've always thought I would like to do is to develop an environmental index. Then people can measure their own environmental performance on an index as they do in other ways. -Maurice Strong

Psychology is the science of the act of experiencing, and deals with the whole system of such acts as they make up mental life. -Samuel Alexander

Such being the nature of mental life, the business of psychology is primarily to describe in detail the various forms which attention or conation assumes upon the different levels of that life. -Samuel Alexander

The mental act of sensation which issues in reflex movement is so simple as to defy analysis. -Samuel Alexander

The thing of which the act of perception is the perception is experienced as something not mental. -Samuel Alexander

We cannot therefore say that mental acts contain a cognitive as well as a conative element. -Samuel Alexander

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

I had the fortunate experience to play with people from different schools of music. Sam Rivers is from the fundamentalist school of music. -Kevin Eubanks

You cannot achieve environmental security and human development without addressing the basic issues of health and nutrition. -Gro Harlem Brundtland

Our choice of a reform framework dictated that we looked at the fundamental assumptions that had driven Nigeria's economy, society and policy hitherto and to seek ways of either abandoning or transcending those assumptions and their supporting institutions. -Ibrahim Babangida

Fundamentally, American society is composed of individuals who don't go out of their way to do each other favours. -Jacques Delors

Now that I'm older, I like almost anything that's done well, even surf music and instrumentals; I really enjoyed the interviews with the Ventures in your magazine. -John Fogerty

That's one strength that Stevie has. She's really not a strong instrumentalist in any way. Her instrument is her voice and her words. And it keeps her focused on the very center of that. -Lindsey Buckingham

I am frequently astonished that it so often results in correct predictions of experimental results. -Murray Gell-Mann

If we look at the way the universe behaves, quantum mechanics gives us fundamental, unavoidable indeterminacy, so that alternative histories of the universe can be assigned probability. -Murray Gell-Mann

Now, what that means is that there is fundamental indeterminacy from quantum mechanics, but besides that there are other sources of effective indeterminacy. -Murray Gell-Mann

What I try to do in the book is to trace the chain of relationships running from elementary particles, fundamental building blocks of matter everywhere in the universe, such as quarks, all the way to complex entities, and in particular complex adaptive system like jaguars. -Murray Gell-Mann

Whether it's string writing or whatever, I try to write for what each instrumentalist can do best. -Chuck Mangione

Heathenism is a state of mind. You can take it that I'm referring to one who does not see his world. He has no mental light. He destroys almost unwittingly. He cannot feel any Gods presence in his life. He is the 21st century man. -David Bowie

I am not systematic at all when it comes to religion. I just love life. And I'm not judgmental. And I'm a vegetarian. -Erykah Badu

Over the years, a number of other intriguing experimental ideas and areas of investigation have been the objects of my attention, and I have devoted some time and effort to exploring the inherent possbilities. -Frederick Reines

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

The older view of the nature of heat was that it is a substance, very fine and imponderable indeed, but indestructible, and unchangeable in quantity, which is an essential fundamental property of all matter. -Hermann von Helmholtz

A hundred years ago, of course, the question that the German Composers' Co-operative asked itself sounded a lot more fundamental: How do you create a fair share for those who ensure that works can actually be performed at all? -Johannes Rau

The study of law left me unsatisfied, because I did not know the aspects of life which it serves. I perceived only the intricate mental juggling with fictions that did not interest me. -Karl Jaspers

I believe that Orthodoxy has been thinking lately, and despite other impressions, that we can't have full sacramental communion if we don't first have a fundamental agreement on the question of the primacy, that still isn't there. -Karl Lehmann

I think that carrying on a life that is meant to be private in public is a breach of taste, common sense, and mental hygiene. -Myrna Loy

A woman can be very beautiful and an ideal model and she will photograph incredibly well, but she'll appear in film and it won't work. What works is some fusion of physical beauty with some mental field or whatever you call it. I don't know. -Oliver Stone

My life was falling apart and then to come out and play and have my best ever – 40 wickets, 250 runs… But the only reason I could do that was because of the way I thought and I think I'm pretty strong mentally. I think I am anyway, pretty strong to get over whatever it is. -Shane Warne

In the first quarter of the nineteenth century the experimental proof for the interdependence of the composition and properties of chemical compounds resulted in the theory that they are mutually related, so that like composition governs like properties, and conversely. -Wilhelm Ostwald

The worst manifestations of exhaustion were successfully cured by a long period of rest but it was immediately apparent to me that I had lost once and for all my former capacity for carrying out experimental work until physically tired. -Wilhelm Ostwald

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 general statement that the mental faculties are class concepts, belonging to descriptive psychology, relieves us of the necessity of discussing them and their significance at the present stage of our inquiry. -Wilhelm Wundt

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

But when you're deprived of it for a lengthy period then you value human companionship. But you have to survive and so you devise all kinds of mental exercises and it's amazing. -Wole Soyinka

Even when I'm writing plays I enjoy having company and mentally I think of that company as the company I'm writing for. -Wole Soyinka

I am a believer in the fundamental doctrines of Christianity. -Joseph Lister

I try to open up my heart as much as I can and keep a real keen eye out that I don't get sentimental. I think we're all afraid to reveal our hearts. It's not at all in fashion. -Paul Simon

We must recognize the fact that many Nazis, Marxists and Fascists believe passionately in their fundamental rightness, and allow nothing to hinder them from their goal in the pursuit of their mission. -Dorothy Day

Often, even after years, mental states once present in consciousness return to it with apparent spontaneity and without any act of the will; that is, they are reproduced involuntarily. -Hermann Ebbinghaus

The constant flux and caprice of mental events do not admit of the establishment of stable experimental conditions. -Hermann Ebbinghaus

Our investments in data, Internet and international have been particularly timely and have positioned the company to post industry-leading incremental revenue gains. -Bernard Ebbers

Well, obviously, as soon as I'd finished the script I read a lot of books on Winston Churchill, and started to gain weight and really prepare emotionally, mentally and physically for the role. -Christian Slater

You have that one basic string, but it can vibrate in many ways. But we're trying to get a lot of particles because experimental physicists have discovered a lot of particles. -Edward Witten

We want to live at any price; so we cannot burden ourselves with feelings which, though they might be ornamental enough in peace-time, would be out of place here. -Erich Maria Remarque

Disco B still rolls with me now. He's still doing his thing. He does clubs in different places. He was very instrumental in helping me perfect my craft. -Grandmaster Flash

The advice would be the same for any kind of fiction. Keep writing, and keep sending things out, not to friends and relatives, but to people who have the power to buy. A lot of additional, useful tips could be added, but this is fundamental. -Fred Saberhagen

And now when we hear that Iran and Iraq plan to cooperate more closely and that a fundamentalist is coming to power in Tehran – a man about whom we cannot be sure that he is absolutely averse to terrorism – it is very worrisome. -Otto Schily

It works both ways: there are victims of tragedy who come to me who have experienced grief of such magnitude that they cannot reconcile. Likewise, I cannot change the mentality of those who committed the crimes or the fools who followed them. -Paddy Ashdown

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

But Pete had the desire to play at the highest level for so many years. That is very difficult, mentally. -Richard Krajicek

I wrote two plotted books, got some of the fundamentals of storytelling down, then… it's sort of like taking the training wheels off, trying to write a book that's fun in the same way without relying on quite such mechanical or external beats. -Jonathan Franzen

Predicting has a spotty record in science fiction. I've had some failures. On the other hand, I also predicted the fall of the Berlin Wall and the rise of fundamentalist Islam… and I'm not happy to be right in all of those cases. -David Brin

The environmental benefits of hydrogen are also outstanding. When used as an energy source, hydrogen produces no emissions besides water. Zero polluting emissions, an amazing advance over the current sources of energy that we use. -Dan Lipinski

Our Nation must provide sufficient access to healthcare, adequate benefits, and the supplemental resources our veterans were promised and so dearly need. We owe our heroes no less. -Dan Lipinski

Hydrogen holds great promise to meet many of our future energy needs, and it addresses national security and our environmental concerns. Hydrogen is the simplest, most abundant element in the universe. -Dan Lipinski

The freedom to convert is fundamental to freedom of religion. -Bob Inglis

I changed my mindset and figured, Why not try to be really entertaining instrumentally? -Brad Paisley

One in six people suffer depression or a chronic anxiety disorder. These are not the worried well but those in severe mental pain with conditions crippling enough to prevent them living normal lives. -Polly Toynbee

The strongest predictor of unhappiness is anyone who has had a mental illness in the last 10 years. It is an even stronger predictor of unhappiness than poverty – which also ranks highly. -Polly Toynbee

But it is no good using the tongs of reason to pull the Fundamentalists' chestnuts out of the fire of contradiction. Their real troubles lie elsewhere. -Garrett Hardin

Fundamentalists are panicked by the apparent disintegration of the family, the disappearance of certainty and the decay of morality. Fear leads them to ask, if we cannot trust the Bible, what can we trust? -Garrett Hardin

Why are ecologists and environmentalists so feared and hated? This is because in part what they have to say is new to the general public, and the new is always alarming. -Garrett Hardin

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

However, I think the major opposition to ecology has deeper roots than mere economics; ecology threatens widely held values so fundamental that they must be called religious. -Garrett Hardin

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights describes the family as the natural and fundamental unit of society. It follows that any choice and decision with regard to the size of the family must irrevocably rest with the family itself, and cannot be made by anyone else. -Garrett Hardin

Lives have been altered in fundamental ways, and later, after they acquire a more complete understanding of what goals are actually attainable, many are left facing a lot of pain and frustration. And yet, there's no culture of complaint. -Garry Trudeau

Of the 55 refineries closed in America in the last 10 years, they were all closed for economic reasons, mostly oil company mergers. Not a single one was closed for environmental purposes or objections. -Peter DeFazio

Europe is no longer Europe, it is Eurabia, a colony of Islam, where the Islamic invasion does not proceed only in a physical sense, but also in a mental and cultural sense. -Oriana Fallaci

It is difficult to write about any form of mental disease, especially your own, without sounding as if you were examining a bug under glass. -Gene Tierney

I think Henry Miller has had huge influence not because he wrote about sex, but because the memoir or the nonfiction novel has become such a monumental force in American publishing, if not in literature. -Leslie Fiedler

I've overcome physical and mental brutality – and fought back. -Tatum O'Neal

I think the extent to which I have any balance at all, any mental balance, is because of being a farm kid and being raised in those isolated rural areas. -James Earl Jones

You will in the future hear me on a pop album, but that's just the experimental side of me. -Dave Lombardo

And I know that the younger generation is doing things that are so ingenious. And for them it's not a matter of a political belief or an environmental stance. It's really just common sense. -Daryl Hannah

The Body Shop Foundation is run by our staff and supports social activism and environmental activism. We don't tend to support big agencies. -Anita Roddick
