They are shooting The Thief Lord in Venice at the moment. -Cornelia Funke

I do what I do, and I do it well, and focus and take it one moment at a time. -Jim Caviezel

Meeting Chet was a life changing moment for me. -Suzy Bogguss

I'm a just a mom when I walk down the street. -Alice Barrett

But when you have to deal with notes, and to be able to make a full definition of what a sound is – if you are not around that environment, then you'll find you lose that feel, that momentum, you lose all that. -Dennis Brown

However, while we should certainly celebrate the demise of overt official racism, we must also critically examine where we are at this historical moment, recognize the many challenges ahead and reaffirm our commitment to making Brown v. Board a reality. -Ed Markey

There's something interesting about playing live; you're in the moment, and I think it would be beneficial. -Herb Alpert

Certainly in cartooning I'm given huge free rein at the moment. -Jonathan Shapiro

We could spend time together during the day and just kind of talk and enjoy each other and enjoy the moment. But it was interesting we both knew that once you walk through the gates of that stadium, then it was on, the game was on. -Ralph Boston

One moment you appear to be riding the crest of a wave, only to have the rug pulled away from you, bringing you back down to earth with a sickening thud. -John Barrow

Literally from the moment I came in the door of MIT, it was very clear that a highly productive 40-year partnership between U.S. research universities and the federal government was badly eroding. -Charles Vest

The moment for action has arrived, and I know that I can trust in you to save our country. -George B. McClellan

But certainly the laser proved to be what I realized it was going to be. At that moment in my life I was too ignorant in business law to be able to do it right, and if I did it over again probably the same damn thing would happen. -Gordon Gould

I figure if it's turns out well the film will have its own momentum and will carry into the video release. So it's hard to really picture the DVD version when I'm in production. -Jay Roach

The commentary track became a lot like the movie and there are some funny, long, awkward pauses that you can tell we're just trying to find stuff to say. None of us had gotten to really talk about the movie until that moment and they were in New York and we were in L.A. -Jay Roach

A lot of the American press at the time was saying 'just watch what happens when Bertelsmann tries to buy EMI, that will be a moment of truth that will show the Commission's true colors.' Well, that deal never happened either. -Mario Monti

'Press Your Luck' was probably the most exciting because of the unpredictability of the game and how I won on one of the three days on the very last spin against all odds. It was one of those great unpredictable game show moments. -Randy West

My favorite Knicks moment was when we beat Indiana in Game 7 to reach the NBA Finals. We worked so hard as a team to reach that moment that it was very satisfying to beat Indiana and reach the Finals. -John Starks

Basically that was the moment when I thought I'd like to do this forever. I never changed my mind. -Treat Williams

There is a certain amount of momentum that is achieved when one country after another reopens their borders. -Mike Johanns

I'm developing some screenplays at the moment with my Australian producer. -Rachel Griffiths

Kinsey would identify himself with Galileo in moments of feelings of persecution. -Bill Condon

No, we have our ups and downs, but we're all very up at the moment. -John Deacon

In fact, my mom always told me because I was the daughter of an Army officer born overseas in Paris, France, that under the Constitution she believed that I could never run for president. -Karen Hughes

It was at this moment that I wrote my first important paper in theoretical physics. I was 32 years old, 5 years beyond the alleged age of senility for theorists. -Robert B. Laughlin

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

I'm a Mommy's Girl – the strongest influence in my young life was my mom. -Susie Bright

I was hired to do this one great script called 'Cap'n Ricky' and that project is up in the air at the moment. -David Wain

At the moment I'm enjoying a new challenge at the Royal Opera House, but I'm also keen to pursue my interest in television and particularly in science. -Deborah Bull

Have you ever had one of those moments when you look up and realize that you're one of those people you see on the train talking to themselves? -Marc Maron

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

No one turns down a film with Woody; it's something everyone wants in their career as an important moment. He's such a comedic genius, without question, so I was thrilled. -Mark Rydell

We're not as materialistic and income-tax conscious as we think. At the moment our superstitions are tucked away, but come out sometimes in strange ways sex crimes, black masses. -Terence Fisher

I know some people who never have any difficulties to speak of. The moment I understood your premisses, I felt sure you had a real foundation to hold on. -Asa Gray

There are so many moments and works that influence us in what we do. Movies, music, TV and, most importantly, the profound everydayness of our lives. -Barbara Kruger

I mean, making art is about objectifying your experience of the world, transforming the flow of moments into something visual, or textual, or musical, whatever. Art creates a kind of commentary. -Barbara Kruger

I think what I'm trying to do is create moments of recognition. To try to detonate some kind of feeling or understanding of lived experience. -Barbara Kruger

There's a moment of recognition. It's that white-light kind of stuff that just 'works.' I love that. And you know it when it happens, whether it's a movie, music, a building, a book. -Barbara Kruger

I didn't for a moment doubt the choice, but if life is ever fearsome, it is truly fearsome then. -John C. Hawkes

Conservatives and liberals alike have been waiting for this moment for a third of a century. -Michael Kinsley

The sexy moments for me, I wasn't thinking of them as sexy. I was thinking of them as more specific to my character. So it was necessary for my character's development in the movie, so that's how I played it. -Michelle Trachtenberg

I have many valentines. My mom and my sister and my directors. I got calls from all of them. And my friends. I respect what Valentine's Day stands for because it is about love. -Michelle Trachtenberg

Of the individual poems, some are more lyric and some are more descriptive or narrative. Each poem is fixed in a moment. All those moments written or read together take on the movement and architecture of a narrative. -Marilyn Hacker

I don't find the business easy. The moment you start talking about the business, you start sounding like someone in Spinal Tap. -Robert Wyatt

In fact, even the perception of a resurgence in crime can be enough to paralyze business momentum and destroy the sense of security that a vibrant and progressive city requires. -Alan Autry

Actually, the moment of victory is wonderful, but also sad. It means that your trip is ended. -Bill Toomey

I'm thrilled at the moment because our audiences, you know, they… the demographic is 50% male. -Graeme Murphy

I'm always active in trying to educate people when it comes to eating animal products, testing on animals, and the health benefits of being vegan, although I'm probably not the best person to be talking about the latter at the moment. -Daniel Johns

I'd say my happiest moment as an actress came when I learned I'd won the Look Magazine Best Supporting Actress Award for 1956 in The Killing. -Marie Windsor

At the moment, I have it planned as a six or seven year experiment, but the books will only ever appear in bursts like this every couple of years and only with the best quality artists. -Mark Millar

I think American audiences are quite interesting in that they can handle almost any amount of violence, but the moment the violence becomes sexual violence it immediately becomes an issue. -Mark Millar

I love playing moms. It's a lot easier than being a mom, I hear. -Faith Ford

My mom would have liked it that I patterned myself more after Jimmy Reed. -Jimmy Smith

He sort of gets comic moments. Not a lot of directors do. -Kevin McDonald

Well, my mom is single and we've both been single at the same time over the last ten years, so I really related to the bond between my character and Diane's. -Amanda Peet

I am an English major in school with an emphasis in creative writing. I think hearing Maya Angelou speak at school last year was one of the best moments Stanford, at least, intellectually, had to offer. -Fred Savage

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

Over the years my mom has become a self-taught Biblical scholar. -Kathie Lee Gifford

I've got no plans to be a ballet dancer at the moment. -Neil Patrick Harris

I lived with my mom in a really small apartment. My bedroom was like in the living room. That's why I still love to sleep on couches now. -Alicia Keys

My mom is definitely my rock. -Alicia Keys

Being the 8th out of 10 kids, and being the one that stayed in trouble, I sort of became a momma's boy. -Bo Jackson

I don't think it's the job of theatre at the moment to provide political propaganda; that would be simplistic. We have to explore our situation further before we will understand it. -Edward Bond

I was thinking that when I have children, that I should always dress as a character for them, so they think their mom is Alice in Wonderland or Cinderella. It would be totally messed up! -Gwen Stefani

I think the same way about theatre, you go out there and you are creating a world for a moment that can actually have a real impact on people, present some kind of story that gives you something to think about when you walk away, feeling enriched – if it works out well. -Jeffrey Jones

That's what I do and I enjoy even the hateful moments of a relationship where two people or four people come together to make a bigger mess than originally intended. -Josh Silver

The Communist regime didn't consider this to be a shining moment in history and assigned no heroism to it. They classified it as merely an accident. -Kathryn Bigelow

When I record an album I'm trying to get as close as possible to that perfect moment. -Lou Reed

The other side of it is that, despite all that, people reach out to poetry at the key moments in their lives. -Paul Muldoon

They cut about seven minutes from that broadcast, but it was still vital to the story's momentum. -Ben Bradlee

Independent dance – and, fine, it's a very good thing that it remains independent – is a much tougher life: all dancers expect that, and accept that there will be periods of not being able to work, provided there are choice moments during the year when they really can work. -Siobhan Davies

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

I always think that I love doing what I'm doing at the moment. The past is over. I can't go play one of those characters again. But I can play this and I can continue to grow in what I'm doing at the moment and that's really what I'm thinking about now. -Gavin MacLeod

My father thought sport was something fun – he didn't know it was a way to make money. Then I won a Mercedes at the world championships and I gave it to him. From the moment it arrived my father said: 'Good, you can support not just yourself but me too'. -Haile Gebrselassie

At the moment I am a little bit politician, yes. I think that could be my next step. It is not because I want power, it is because of what I think I could do for the people. -Haile Gebrselassie

We finally found out the technique of separating and getting information about where every train would be at any moment. Of course, I went over budget many times, because – as you go along – some things improved, and you get better ideas. -John Hench

I know that Julia has been given to me for my spiritual growth, and this moment is perfect for us both. I know that I love her, and I know she's my soul mate. -Kenny Loggins

My strangest media moment a photo session they all had dressed up like 50 gangsters. That was pretty cool. We have to get some more of those kind of photos sometimes. -Kerry King

He also didn't like a lock of my hair and said that he couldn't get into the moment without the hair being just right. I quietly knew that he was anxious and that the hairdo wasn't the real issue. But we all let it go and came back to the scene sometime later. -Madeleine Stowe

I remember feeling that Michael was extremely sensitive when it came to that moment. Most directors are and they usually rely, at least in my experience, on the actress to take over. And Michael is a gentleman. -Madeleine Stowe

I told my agents that I didn't want to go on the audition. But as that was happening I called my mom, who has been watching the show from the beginning, and my mom said, 'It's the coolest show. You have to go.' -Mary Lynn Rajskub

Winning the Pulitzer is wonderful and it's an honor and I feel so humbled and so grateful, but I think that I'll think of it very much as the final sort of final moment for this book and put it behind me along with the rest of the book, as I write more books. -Jhumpa Lahiri

In reality I have said very little things; I didn't point out many things to Geoffrey, I trusted very much not only his understanding of what I was doing, or what I wanted to do, in that moment. -Victoria de los Angeles

And the input that we always got from Deadheads, at the moment of making the music, was always a factor. -Phil Lesh

But my mother and father were married when my mom was 20 and my dad was 24. -Rachael Leigh Cook

That's what we wanted to get across in that moment, particularly when Shaun goes to the shop when he's all hung over. He doesn't notice any of the zombies around him just because he never had before, so why should he at that point? -Simon Pegg

I don't think of it at the moment, but the roles that interest me are those of young people. -Isabelle Adjani

I was lucky that I met the right mentors and teachers at the right moment. -James Levine

More and more couples are having this negotiation or discussion, but I'm still amazed at the number who aren't and where the cultural norm sort of kicks in and they just assume that mom's got to be the one who stays home, not dad. -James Levine

Any Reform Bill which is worth a moment's thought, or the smallest effort to carry it, must at least double, and it ought to do much more than double, the representation of the metropolitan boroughs and of all the great cities of the United Kingdom. -John Bright

For the moment and for some time great events have been denied me, forward action not come my way. -John Burns

I wanted to show how a man of sensitive and noble character, born for religion, comes to throw off the orthodoxies of his day and moment, and to go out into the wilderness where all is experiment, and spiritual life begins again. -Mary Augusta Ward

We would be able neither to remember nor to reflect nor to compare nor to think, indeed, we would not even be the person who we were a moment ago, if our concepts were divided among many and were not to be encountered somewhere together in their most exact combination. -Moses Mendelssohn

Like a layer on a pearl, you can't specifically identify the irritant, the moment of the irritant, but at the end of the day, you know you have a pearl. -Ken Burns

I began to feel that the drama of the truth that is in the moment and in the past is richer and more interesting than the drama of Hollywood movies. So I began looking at documentary films. -Ken Burns

And Big Night, I think by the end the brothers find that balance, when they touch each other on the shoulder over breakfast and it's understood that what should never have driven them apart almost drove them apart. I think that's a true moment. -Tony Shalhoub

We have to do a film parody for Comic Relief. We can't decide which film to parody at the moment. Any ideas welcome, but not Spiderman owing to costume being too tight. -Dawn French

Don't try to write to the trend of the moment. -Alan Dean Foster

I feel like we were married from the moment we sat down there. -James Brolin

We have an uncanny ability to make birds do what we want them to do. In Blood Simple there's a shot from the bumper of a car and it's going up this road and a huge flock of birds takes off at the perfect moment. -Joel Coen

It was the worst moment of my life. The producer came up and talked me back into going on stage. -Paul Lynde

The CIA could not face up to the American people and admit that its former employees had conspired to assassinate the President; so from the moment Kennedy's heart stopped beating, the Agency attempted to sweep the whole conspiracy under the rug. -Jim Garrison

This moment in time, on this tour, you know, I'm discovering a lot of new things. And to be 45 and doing that, it's a mixture of pleasure and pain, I can assure you. -Eric Clapton

The Communists at that moment were very strong in Italy, and the Italian Communist Party was the biggest Communist Party outside the Soviet Union. -Giovanni Agnelli

I like to tell young people to work hard for your goals and live in the moment. -Nadia Comaneci

My marriage to my husband, Bart Conner in 1996 is my proudest personal moment. -Nadia Comaneci

I can only point out a curious fact. Year after year the Nobel Awards bring a moment of happiness not only to the recipients, not only to colleagues and friends of the recipients, but even to strangers. -Alfred Hershey

There is a certain moment in the film when the son is in the nursing home and he goes to the television and turns it off because he sees himself in the image. -Atom Egoyan

It is about this very abstract sense of displacement that he feels the moment he turns off the television. -Atom Egoyan

It was just one of those moments in the universe that was mine. -Carlton Fisk

I prefer to imagine that my wife, a few friends, and occasionally my mom are the only ones who read what I do, though I realize that this is somewhat unrealistic. -Chris Ware

Well, we are not doing that film actually. At least I am not at the moment, but we are making an effort to get it done; I don't know whether we'll get the financing for it. The old story we had it, it fell out of place and this and that. -Harvey Keitel

You could write a song about some kind of emotional problem you are having, but it would not be a good song, in my eyes, until it went through a period of sensitivity to a moment of clarity. Without that moment of clarity to contribute to the song, it's just complaining. -Joni Mitchell

I was a hyper kid in school and the teacher suggested to my mom she needed to do something with me. -Devon Sawa

For instance, when I go to the premiere on Tuesday I probably won't watch the film at all – I'll be watching the audience just to see their reaction to different moments, what I'm doing right and what I'm doing wrong, stuff like that. -Devon Sawa

Like after a nice walk when you have seen many lovely sights you decide to go home, after a while I decided it was time to go home, let us put the cubes back in order. And it was at that moment that I came face to face with the Big Challenge: What is the way home? -Erno Rubik

A moment's reflection shows that Liberalism is entirely negative. It is not a formative force, but always and only a disintegrating force. -Francis Parker Yockey

At this moment, by an undeserved stroke of fortune, I am the direct voice of the poets of my race and the indirect voice for the noble Spanish and Portuguese tongues. -Gabriela Mistral

I still say one of the greatest moments in my whole NBA career was getting drafted. -Kevin Johnson

I am moreover inclined to be concise when I reflect on the constant occupation of the citizens in public and private affairs, so that in their few leisure moments they may read and understand as much as possible. -Vitruvius

My mom was at every single game I played as a kid, rain or shine. -Ryne Sandberg

I want the public to know that it will be an honor for me to meet them and spend a few special moments with all those who helped me through my filmed career. -Tony Curtis

It was the moment I learned acting is not acting out. After that light went on, I spent the rest of my life trying to figure out how to make other people realize it. -William Hurt

Here's something pompous – you take your day and artistically create it, so every moment has an artistic flavor. -William Shatner

No, I don't regret anything at this point. That may change on the next phone call, but at the moment I don't regret anything. -William Shatner

I know how I like to be treated, so I always start by saying, 'Could you give me a moment of your time, I know you're very busy,' and usually, they will. -Arthur Godfrey

Married and divorced, three beautiful daughters, two in college. The other one is 16, lives with her mom. I'm 46, I've worked for the Post Office for 18 years, seven facilities in three states. -Arthur Godfrey

Jazz is all about improvisation and it's about the moment in time, doing it this way now, and you'll never do it this way twice. I've studied the masters. Why would I want to play ball after the guys who sit on a bench? I want to play like Michael Jordan. -Brian McKnight

Nobody's profitable at this moment, because recession is on; advertising dollars are down, and expenses are way up. So that kind of belies the situation that you would expect, because the ratings are way up everywhere. -Brit Hume

I remember my mom dressed like Janis Joplin. -Bryan White

In a strange kind of way I know were really popular and probably the biggest band in the country at the moment, but at the same time there is this real cult thing going on. -Dan Hawkins

You just make sure you don't screw it up. It's going to work as long as you don't mess it up. Hopefully you have plenty of those moments in a big comedy. -Harold Ramis

I came down to the living room one day and my wife was standing in the living room. It wasn't an illusion. I saw her out of the corner of my eye. The moment I saw her, she vanished. -Hugh Leonard

My life is every moment of my life. It is not a culmination of the past. -Hugh Leonard

I just wanna build momentum again. Keeping yourself in work is one thing, keeping yourself in good work's another. But if it doesn't work out, so be it. As the Taoists say, Learn to accept that which you cannot change. -Ian Hart

Even the handsomest men do not have the same momentary effect on the world as a truly beautiful woman does. -Jonathan Carroll

I'd like to go back to standup. I don't like to think I've done my last gig. At the moment it terrifies me, I get really nervous. It's a great buzz when it goes well. -Mackenzie Crook

I just simply write as it moves me. I may be writing about a book or a movie or a person, places where I've been or something I've done. Or politics. It's going to what's on my mind at the moment. -Tina Brown

I think for a young journalist, it's better to write for the Web at the moment than it is for print. -Tina Brown

Part of life is to live it, and enjoy it, and seize the moments that you find particularly pleasing. -Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Well, like any time you're shooting documentary stuff, you've got to be in the moment, and you've got to be able to be in control enough to capture what's happening. -Brian De Palma

Also, my mom and family are very important to me and I know that this is not expected. -Christina Milian

I think we're in good hands. There's definitely much more momentum in bringing in good things to help support the show. Everyone's got a good attitude about it and I think that makes all the difference. -Crystal Chappell

And there is such a thing as a decathlon high. It's like a rock rolling down hill, picking up momentum. You get better and better. -Dan O'Brien

My mom was a source of strength. She showed me by example that women, regardless of how difficult life may get, can do it all. -Gloria Estefan

My mom was definitely very strict with me. -Gloria Estefan

Every moment of your life that is not a complete nightmare is happiness. -Merrill Markoe

My mother stopped working when she had my brother. She was a full time mom until I started getting heavily into ice skating lessons, and it got to the point where they really needed my mom to earn an income. -Dorothy Hamill

Why can't we, with a more intelligent policy, actually have houses that are affordable, built at higher densities than they are at the moment and built on brownfield sites. -John Prescott

I want to live every moment totally and intensely. Even when I'm giving an interview or talking to people, that's all that I'm thinking about. -Omar Sharif

They're definitely having their moment now because they know how to work the system, and I know I have to be that way, too, in order to succeed. But it's never been more frustrating for me. -Rose McGowan

His heart was like a sensitive plant, that opens for a moment in the sunshine, but curls up and shrinks into itself at the slightest touch of the finger, or the lightest breath of wind. -Anne Bronte

I remember a moment when the Prince went back to his old school, Grammar School in Melbourne, and slightly to his horror his old music teacher produced a cello. -Anthony Holden

Later, I made a movie with him, 'That Touch of Mink,' and we became good friends but any woman's initial meeting with Cary is right up there with the big moments of her world history. -Audrey Meadows

I really connect with those moments of doing missionary work down there and just seeing the people that are dying from disease and hunger and malnutrition. -Deborah Cox

I really think about the times that I've been through with my husband and all the stuff that we've been through together, and I think to those moments for inspiration for the role. -Deborah Cox

Where every moment is about truth and I think it's a great challenge every night. That's what really drove me to wanting to do theatre, and it's great. -Deborah Cox

That's a big deal for kids, when they come into the kitchen and the teacher is drinking coffee with mom. They react differently on the next day when you say: 'Sit down and shut-up!' -Ed O'Neill

When running to fill a time quota, however, the reverse happens. You can't make that time pass any faster by rushing, so you settle into a pace that feels right to you at the moment. Each minute above a quota is a little victory. -Joe Henderson

For me the printing process is part of the magic of photography. It's that magic that can be exciting, disappointing, rewarding and frustrating all in the same few moments in the darkroom. -John Sexton

You know that they're not just into it for the moment, they really care about it and value it over time. -Matthew Sweet

First of all when you're a mommy like you like the consistency of being on a show like that's just peace of mind, I know I have financial, you know stability. -Nia Long

I have a four year old and I'm telling you we did Nickelodeon last night and he embarrassed me. It was like one of those moments when I couldn't believe my kid is acting like this. I just had to just like walk away from him because he was really pushing my buttons. -Nia Long

They have the big ferris wheel and we've been out of town for two months, so he just was like, 'Mommy I want to go to Toys R Us and I don't care if you have a movie coming out and all that.' He was just being a kid. But I had to allow him to have that moment. -Nia Long

I think it's time for me to get out, because at the moment I'm only thinking about fishing 21 hours a day, and they're the waking moments. And even when I close my eyes I'm thinking about it. -Rex Hunt

That was fun to play. There were some nice special effects coupled with some really nice moments with child and wife. I also was able to age to about 100 years in 'Brief Candle.' -Richard Dean Anderson

Now that was one thing, but from an actor's point of view, this poor young man, crying from the moment I opened the door to the moment he left. Now if an actor did that they would say he's over-acting. -Rod Steiger

The applause is a celebration not only of the actors but also of the audience. It constitutes a shared moment of delight. -John Polanyi

I don't believe for one moment you can write well what you wouldn't read for pleasure. -Nora Roberts

And from the moment that we realized it was a terrorist attack, there isn't an agent or a support person in the FBI that wasn't committed to bringing to justice those who were responsible for this. -Robert Mueller

There never seems to be enough hours in the day. At the moment I have no time to make new music because I've been doing so much promotion for this new single. -Jamelia

My mom and dad are both in stand-up comedy, so that's where I started, that's where I got everything. My roots are holding the mic. -Pauly Shore

My mom is two people to me. She's my mom number one, and then she's this lady most comedians know as being a legendary owner of a nightclub that's responsible for starting a lot of heavy careers. -Pauly Shore

For most entertainers, there is a single experience, one defining moment, when confidence replaces the self-doubt that most of us wrestle with. -Charley Pride

In Van Halen there were moments, like in some of the ballads, I put my heart and soul into those records. Those lyrics when I sang 'em, I gave myself goosebumps. -Sammy Hagar

It was definitely a part of our life. I mean, my mom had both her brothers and her fiancee in Vietnam at the same time, so it wasn't just my dad's story, it was my mom's story too. And we definitely grew up listening to the stories. -Vanessa Kerry

I wanted to escape so badly. But of course I knew I couldn't just give up and leave school. It was only when I heard my mom's voice that I came out of my hiding place. -Zhang Ziyi

We're still working out the details, but I'd be delighted to do the film. The problem at the moment is my busy schedule. Shooting on this film has been extended by a month, but I need to be in the U.S. by Dec. 20. -Zhang Ziyi

I'm in an on-off relationship at the moment. -Cat Deeley

I always was one who didn't take things for granted. But I think I do appreciate things more now. The small moments of joy that we find each day are so much more precious now than when I looked at them before. -Chris LeDoux

I'm almost a full-time mom. -Ekaterina Gordeeva

I think you will find scientists that think like you in Germany and Britain, and you will find politicians that think like Weinberger. I think the most bellicose ruling group in the Western world at the moment is the British. -E. P. Thompson

It's a mood record. Like one night you're going to be down in the dumps depressed because you're thinking about your ex-boyfriend and the next moment you're gonna be like screw him you know? And the next one you're saying to yourself 'God I'm in love.' -Willa Ford

I am sensible of the velocity of the moments, and entering that part of my head alert to the motion of the world I am aware that life was never perfect, never absolute. This bestows contentment, even a fearlessness. -Harold Brodkey

In New York one lives in the moment rather more than Socrates advised, so that at a party or alone in your room it will always be difficult to guess at the long term worth of anything. -Harold Brodkey

But I can't really say there is too much modern music that I'm blown away by at this moment. -Duncan Sheik

I certainly wouldn't say that my life is a disaster, but there have been moments where I've felt like that. -Duncan Sheik

I believe sustainable use is the greatest propaganda in wildlife conservation at the moment. -Steve Irwin
