We had offers to go everywhere and we could have done them. But what would have been the point? We were tired. We had worked hard and needed a break before we got stale. We spent six months at home and writing songs. -John Bonham

I am a writer. I could not afford to take 15 months off from my writing career to play detective. -James Ellroy

Mike and Heather and I rapped once or twice in New York and then we all wound up on a train together on the way out to Maryland. I think it was about a month and a half from the time we got cast until the time we shot the thing. -Joshua Leonard

I didn't want to deal in poetry. I got rid of that after a few months. -Tom Wesselmann

I finished the movie a month ago in downtown Los Angeles. I had a lot of fun doing it. -Coolio

I know there are things I did in education that will never be reversed. I have not done that in film yet because I have only been here for about nine months. -Estelle Morris

Peter was 2 years and 10 months old when we began to study him. He was afraid of a white rat, and this fear extended to a rabbit, a fur coat, a feather, cotton wool, etc., but not to wooden blocks and similar toys. -Mary C. Jones

The actual atoms and molecules that make up my brain and body today are not the same ones that I was born with on September 8, 1954, a half-century ago this month. -Michael Shermer

While I relish our warm months, winter forms our character and brings out our best. -Tom Allen

Despite the increase in world attention toward Sudan in the past months, the genocide in Darfur has continued without any serious attempt by the Sudanese government to do what governments primarily exist to do, protect their citizens. -Tom Allen

Six months after that, I left Taiwan, first for Hong Kong and then for mainland China, where I spent another three months studying still more Chinese and generally kicking around the country. -Eric Allin Cornell

I spend about eight months researching and outlining my book. -Jeffery Deaver

I spend eight months outlining and researching the novel before I begin to write a single word of the prose. -Jeffery Deaver

We spent a month in LA using a pool of musicians, a string arranger called Benjamin Wright, some great backing singers, and it gave tracks like Dynamite, which was written there, that kind of flavour. -Jay Kay

I mean, that's another big surprise of the show, is that I see sixteen year old people who recognize me and they're honest, for-real fans of the show. And it goes down to nine months. I mean, I've heard of nine month to year-old children who are watching the show. -Steve Burns

I'm rather pleased with the new manuals. I see Inform now as a gauche young adult, having got past the stage of growing out of his shoes every few months. -Graham Nelson

At least the rap metal stuff is good, but it's not really my bag. I've been listening to the radio since we've been touring the past month, because we don't get it most of the time. -Jon Crosby

It doesn't really seem any different anywhere. I'd say it seems like we're biggest in Australia. It's just that we've always been this underground band and for some reason in the last month has been starting to go overground. -Jon Crosby

We were number one most added at radio, when the single came out and that's much different. It took like eight months for any radio to happen on the first record, so a lot more support has happened right out of the box. -Jon Crosby

It's not the case of turning in a bunch of songs and recording the next month. I think you're looking for songs all year long and you're writing all year long. -Keith Urban

I write in the afternoon, from about 12 until 6 or 7. I use an upstairs room as my office. Once I get going I keep at it, and it usually takes about six months from the first blank screen until 'The End.' -Lee Child

When the show started out, it was like all of a sudden we had to do 35 episodes and we had just a month and a half to write them, and it took me a while to realize that I was in charge. -Mike Judge

Ancient recipients of instant news probably couldn't do very much about it, for instance. Xerxes would still need three months to get his army together, and he might not get home for years. -Peter Singer

We've had some fairly intensive discussions leading up to these meetings between NATO and Russia, preparing for them, and it's going to be a very important six months for NATO. -Warren Christopher

Being on the cover of a magazine with my son is the best thing ever. It took me 18 years to get my first cover, he gets one at 8 months. -Cindy Margolis

I have avoided becoming stale by putting a little water on the plate, lying on the plate, and having myself refreshed in a toaster oven for 23 minutes once every month. -Dean Koontz

There's also something of an illusion in that, you can perhaps record a TV thing one month and complete a book the next and then be in a play. Then, if they all come out at once, it looks as if you're actually juggling a million things. -Jane Asher

Generally I finish a first draft in 2-6 months, then I set it aside for a while so that when I come back to it I can read it with fresh eyes and figure out how to improve it. -Margaret Haddix

After I've sent my revised draft to my agent and editor, they suggest more improvement sand again, this revision phase can take anywhere from a few hours to a few months. -Margaret Haddix

I write a book over a period of months or years, and when I'm done with it, usually another year goes by before I see it in print. It's hard to be patient and wait. -Margaret Haddix

For a man who purports to have learned of media ethics only this month, Mr. Williams has spent an undue amount of time appearing as a media ethicist on both CNN and the cable news networks of NBC. -Frank Rich

The wonderful thing about Food for Thought is that it lets you keep your hand in theater and be in front of a live audience without a commitment of six months, or even three months. -Treat Williams

By the time we went to Doctor Simon I think Barney had been totally disabled for at least six months. -Betty Hill

We had gone out on the road in 94 and 95 for a three month American tour, and we realised, as did our manager and booking agent at the time, that we have really exhausted it, and we can't make money at this anymore. -Steve Brown

I spent two months on the first draft, working 8 hours a day, five days a week. -Stephen R. George

The next few months are critical to Pakistan's future direction as a democratic state committed to promoting peace, fighting terrorism and working for social justice. -Benazir Bhutto

There needs to be a planned series of speeches, interviews, etc., over the next two or three months by administration officials and other public figures talking about President Ford, what he is trying to do and what he has accomplished. -Robert Teeter

It is my belief that it is not the fact that he traveled as much as he did during the past few months as much as what he said and how he said it that hurt him. -Robert Teeter

I think what we need is a more welcoming mode from the people who put on a hundred million country-western shows on television. How about a monthly jazz show? -Sonny Rollins

We all laughed. It was more like that whole thing that I was talking about earlier. You go to training camp and after the season is over, you might not see the guys for six months until you go back to training camp. -Bubba Smith

Here we spent so much time together – eight months of our lives almost – and it was so great because we all got so close and that really made us not afraid to improve with each other. -Emmy Rossum

Double-digit inflation is a terrible thing – and it got up to 14 or 15 percent on a monthly basis for a while, shortly after I became chairman of the Fed. -Paul A. Volcker

They rushed to move it forward, uh, and then a lawsuit was filed and we spent many months litigating, rather than trying to come up with legislation and move forward on that front. -Tom Udall

I had wanted to play drums since the age of 9 when I saw a drum set in the window of a music store for the first time. We took lessons at a local music school and began playing together after about 6-9 months of lessons. -Jack Irons

After wrestling with myself for six months, I began medical treatment. During that time I started a band with some friends of mine called Jack's Car, but that didn't last. -Jack Irons

I went to work with a guy named Matt Fuller, who was a Mothers fan, and low and behold, Arthur was working for him also. We worked together for about six months and decided to strike out on our own. -Jimmy Carl Black

The Justices are currently considering a case, argued last month, which seeks to extend the writ of habeas corpus to al Qaeda and Taliban detainees at Guantanamo. -John Yoo

I was born in Connecticut. But my parents brought my sister and I to L.A. when-Hollywood, actually, when i was 6 months old. -Linda Evans

Markets can't think about anything beyond about three months. This is very long-term for markets, which is why the important things in life have got to be taken outside of the marketplace. -Susan George

At first, it was hard to sit down and read the things that people were saying. A lot of people would've worked their way up to this position and would've gotten a thick skin over a few years' time. For me, though, all this happened in a few months. -Carrie Underwood

The perks of working in Japan are that you might go for two weeks every three or four months, so you do work an abbreviated schedule. But you really make up for the abbreviated schedule by how hard you have to fight, how much you've got to be in shape. -Owen Hart

My son now is 22 months old, he's been playing since he was 12 months old and he gets standing ovations on the drums. He's been with us since he was 10 weeks old, he's been on the drums. He's got blisters on his fingers before he can even talk. -Dick Dale

I use Windows; '98 second edition and it works very good for me. You know, I just started on the computer about 9 months ago and am fascinated with the possibilities. I don't know what I would do without it now. -Jimmy Carl Black

And one of the things I've tried to do in my first months in office is to give more Georgians – reporters and members of the general public alike – a closer look at how their government works. -Roy Barnes

So here we are, just two months away from the election, with more and more examples that modern day Jim Crowe laws are alive and well in the state of Florida. -Corrine Brown

I did not come to Washington to raise the electricity rates by as much as $40 per month as this plan would do. -Greg Walden

Let me tell you something: if you're on an island for three and a half months and you're four and a half hours by boat from the nearest store, and there's nobody but 30 crew members on the island, I guarantee that you'd be running around without your clothes on. -Christopher Atkins

About two months ago I finished a gospel tour. -Cliff Richard

About two months into the Whisky, I borrowed some money and rented a remote recording truck. -Johnny Rivers

I'd gone through periods where I didn't work live performances for probably seven or eight months at a time. -Johnny Rivers

Raising a small child as a woman while travelling 10 months out of the year would, I believe, be something I would not be able or even want to do, although with the amazing example of Leila, I am no longer so sure. -Lara St. John

Marvel books also feed into the smaller publishers and the fact that this is happening in the same month we're launching Ultimate Fantastic Four is no coincidence. -Mark Millar

I think we're really getting it right the last few months and hopefully we'll get better and better at it. -David Talbot

I think we're proving ourselves as we go along. The past several months our strategy has been evolutionary – making maximum advantage of our client browser, as well as our enterprise software for people who want to build Web sites. -Jim Barksdale

I want my testimony to stand on that point. But I would point out that Zona Research Inc. showed we have increased market share among business users, educational users, and government users over the past several months – and that's more recent than the IDC report. -Jim Barksdale

There was an opening in the ER program at King Drew, so I spent the next month there, fascinated with the range of pathology that I observed, the diversity of skill that the ER physicians had to acquire, the variety of cases, and the ability to interact closely with people. -Samuel Wilson

First, his job approval ratings have been trending down for many months, a trend that has accelerated in recent weeks as the war on terrorism has been supplanted in the public's mind by corporate scandals, stock market declines, and a growing sense of economic insecurity. -Thomas E. Mann

The country up here is beautiful; everything green and pleasant; and if you saw it now, you would not believe that in two months' time it could have such a parched and barren appearance as it will then assume. -William John Wills

A month after the scandal broke, I tried to go back to work at the pharmaceutical company after a leave of absence. But because of all the publicity and resulting pressure and stress, I finally resigned. -Donna Rice

Three months. I was playing the organ for three months. It was a challenge for me in the beginning. -Jimmy Smith

I have decided to follow in my sinful ways, and have largely abandoned the increasingly religious life I was leading over the previous months, including several hours of Talmudic study a day. -Luke Ford

We'll probably be working on another album in the next few months here. -Meg White

We started training a month before the movie started and then by five months in, we were at our peak shape. -Ryan Reynolds

I basically sat down for a month, with all the Sun stuff I could find and just picked out my favorites. I didn't think that they were indicative of '54 to '57, although I tried to stay within that period. -Brian Setzer

Comedy is so fun. I don't know how these people can make movies and work on them for four months and they're these sob stories. I don't know how emotionally you get through that. -Colleen Haskell

Things are forgotten and then perhaps picked up again, if we're lucky, it lasts… if not, then it's in the lap of the gods. The important thing was to do some work that I liked and hopefully that some others might also like, whether for a minute, a week, a month, a year. -Tom Glazer

Well, I've just gotten accustomed to just being in Canada for five and a half months a year. -Anthony Michael Hall

It is true that I am often startled and even angered and repulsed by the strange directions and provocative content of new forms that seem to pop up every few months. -David Rockefeller

But obviously, we can't afford to make some bad long-term decisions with regard to basic commitments our country has – trade those away for some short-term assistance that may or may not be there a month from now. -Fred Thompson

Last month, the Iraqi people went to the polls, voting in their first free election in more than 50 years. -John M. McHugh

We don't pump out albums eight months apart from each other. -Josh Silver

I just got Kill Bill: Vol. 2. I've watched it like eight times in the past two months. I just love the scene at the end between David Carradine and Uma Thurman. -Shawn Ashmore

The reasons why I left were to do with my interest in Buddhism. There were experiences over a period of about six months which caused me to decide to give up music, so one morning I felt I had to go to E.G. Management and tell them. -Jamie Muir

I just did a play in New York which has been my best experience that I've had for maybe ever. It was Paul Weitz's play called Privilege and I was in New York for three months. -Bob Saget

I'm 18, I'm going to graduate high school in a few months. -Camilla Belle

A whole bunch of months passed and I didn't hear anything and then he emailed and asked if I could do a little piece on POD and Queens of the Stone Age. -Chuck Klosterman

If they're traveling at the speed of light, their month is perhaps the equivalent of twenty of our years. So they're just buzzing around having a good old time, continuously looking. -Dwight Schultz

This new one was held for a couple months, so I guess it was better, but when we go into thinking our next record tragedy, it traditionally will probably change the distribution again and it will get held up again. -Kerry King

It was exactly what was released two months later with the exception of a couple of reaction shots which we went back in to get. I liked the movie very much and asked him what the studio's problem was. I felt that he was at a point where they might have worn him down. -Madeleine Stowe

I remember Berlin. Berlin to me was the star of the film. I loved for six months that we filmed there. -Marton Csokas

Well, it's not full time – my dancers are only paid for six months of the year in two three-month blocks; but yes, it is possible we could do it in another year. -Siobhan Davies

A lot of my reading over the next few months will be the works of Hans Christian Andersen – I have been appointed an ambassador for the bicentenary celebrations of his birth next year. -Roger Moore

When you're doing a big movie, you're gone for 10 months to a year. -Ridley Scott

But usually I'll wake up and start writing about nine o'clock. I'll probably write for about three hours, and I'll do that over the next month and a half. -Stanley Tucci

Like, every couple of months you read, they rewrite, you come back in, they've animated more stuff – they usually videotape you while you're reading it – so they'll incorporate some gestures and some facial expressions into it. -John Goodman

But I'm not as bad as Al Pacino – he doesn't even know what month it is half the time when he's working. -John Goodman

Well, PT Anderson sent me a script of Boogie Nights which I let lay around my house for about three months, then one day I'm cleaning my office and decided that I'd better read this before the guy calls me back. I never put it down, bro. -Luis Guzman

Now that it's officially summer, here's my advice to parents who want to continue teaching their kids during the next two months and learn something themselves: visit Civil War battlefields. -Marvin Olasky

I want you to know that, despite what you might read at times in the newspapers or see on the television news, we have actually been getting a lot of things done the last several months, the U.S.-Canada relationship. -Paul Cellucci

You live these three months in this reality, in this dark reality. You don't want to do those films every year because they're taxing. I started smoking a lot of cigarettes. -Vin Diesel

The thing that stood out above and beyond all the experiences was this relationship with the nine-month-old baby. On weekends, I'd be thinking about going back to set on Monday just to see the baby. -Vin Diesel

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

I had some wonderful dreaming meetings. I can't tell you specifically what they've been in the recent months. In the past they've been verbal kinds of messages that he needed to give me. Now they're more dreams of his presence. -Judy Collins

I haven't been out in the marketplace in a while. I'm thinking about going back into it. I've got some things set up over the next couple of months just to go and see. But I have no idea what the specific way to a solution is anymore. It's mysterious to me. -Michael Nesmith

I thank you for your kind invitation to introduce me to the president of the Republic. Since I have not been out of my atelier for two months, I have no appropriate costume for this circumstance. Please excuse me. -Camille Claudel

You promised to take care of me and not to turn your back on me. How is it possible that you never wrote to me even once and you never came back to see me? Do you think that it is fun for me to spend months, even years, without any news, without any hope! -Camille Claudel

Oh yeah, I mean, it wasn't a very good guitar, most good guitars have got thrust rods in the necks that you can adjust or that'll keep them in shape, you know keep them straight. This one just, well it turned into a bow and arrow after a couple of months. -Eric Clapton

I ended up in the US for a month or so, before moving to Montreal with some Romanian friends. -Nadia Comaneci

I spent almost 3 months with Bergman, four hours every afternoon. We sat and went through the whole script. To be honest, most of the time we talked about life and other different things. It was really a wonderful time. -Bille August

I think a benefit is that we try to put it up in a short time. From the decision to do this mission until we fly, it's six months and one week or so, so it's a very short time. -Claude Nicollier

My girlfriend and I rented a nice house on the river and I was there for about two and a half months, and we were just out of Alabama. I hardly got to see Alabama. -Albert Finney

We were on the island of Hawaii. I think I was there three months. It was fantastic. It is not much different than films. It depends on the television show but much of television today is as good or better than most films. -Bo Derek

I did not think that I was angry, but clearly anger was reflected in my writing. I did not think that I had been affected emotionally, but it was clear from my writing that I was still very emotional about the trial some six months after it ended. -Christopher Darden

We did a remake of Lost in Space. Filmed it in London for four months. -Lacey Chabert

We always work at least a month to six weeks before we go on the road, usually for something like eight to 12 hours a night. It took six weeks to do it this time. We just play virtually everything we know. -Charlie Watts

When I wasn't the flavor of the week or month or day, those were hard times. -Kiefer Sutherland

I use my cell phone as much as I can – I talk to friends all the time. I'm like 2,000 hours a month. It's crazy. -Lisa Loeb

Dweezil and I are going on tour with the band probably starting in the middle of February for a month probably playing a few songs from my new record and then I'll continue on after that tour. -Lisa Loeb

When I make a film I'm away from home for two to three months. So I want my kids to look at my films one day and say, I love his movies, I love his choices-because he loved them. -Kevin Costner

You know, that's kind of the thing, I can't freestyle and I used to always wonder why I couldn't, and when I would try once out of every six months, but I was always a great writer! -Bubba Sparxxx

The Iraqi Free Press, which did not exist 18 months ago because there was no such thing as the Iraqi Free Press, broke a story about the U.N. Oil-for-Food scandal, which could potentially turn out to be the largest scandal in history. -Chris Chocola

I took six months off, finished high school, and hung out with friends. -Devon Sawa

The picture has made its million back in four months; I have been overwhelmed by letters, hundreds of them, literally, begging me in my next production not to swing over the shallow trash of mother love, father love, sister love, brother love. -Erich von Stroheim

I would like to have you quote me, Erich von Stroheim, as having said on this day of this month of this year this one thing: you Americans are living on baby food. -Erich von Stroheim

I first came out against Castro in June 1968, fifteen months after my book had been published, and you cannot imagine how quickly a void was created around me. -Guillermo Cabrera Infante

Some months ago, while I was preparing a new work, I told a young cinema executive my intention of including in a soundtrack two themes from Bach. But when he asked me which has been the last hit from that Bach?, then I knew that I had no longer place in cinema. -Maurice Jarre

It had been almost 30 years since the LPGA has played in Mexico. We are definitely looking forward to playing there next year and also coming back to play in Mexico in a month or so. -Natalie Gulbis

I need six weeks of rehearsal and women need nine months and it took me 15 years to figure that out. -William Hurt

Introductions, that is, belong to the masterpieces and classics of the world, to the great and ancient and accepted things; and I am here introducing a short, small story of my own which appeared in The Evening News about ten months ago. -Arthur Machen

I wish I were one of those terribly clever people who, when they write their autobiographies, always say, when I was fifteen months old I distinctly remember my Aunt Fanny saying to me, etc. -George Seaton

I'd just hit the Billboard thing, and I had a good feeling. About a month ago, I received a call that said I was in the running, that I'd made the final 25. So I just wanted to place. -Arthur Godfrey

I stopped this one about two months before federation and I want the next one to be more political. It will deal with the formation of white Australian policy and things like that. -Colleen McCullough

We've got to practice three weeks, get the kinks out, then we've got to practice three weeks with the crew, and then go out for four months. It's just a huge chunk of time out of life. -Bob Seger

You can't get a good crew and a good sound system, and a good light system if you do a small tour. If you want the best, those guys want a commitment of about 4 to 6 months. And I'd want the best people and the best stuff. -Bob Seger

The month of January, we were number one. Now, this is something we're proud of, because we recognize we're up against a formidable operation there at CNN. -Brit Hume

I'd met a woman and I got married, but the money ran out right away. I hadn't had a job for seven months, and it just came over me that I was never going to work again. It hit me. -Denis Johnson

Everyone has a mad half-hour once a month. -Geri Halliwell

One of the saddest realities is that we never know when our lives are at their peak. Only after it is over and we have some kind of perspective do we realize how good we had it a day, a month, five years ago. -Jonathan Carroll

Things are going very smoothly. As expected, there are some minor glitches, and the eight minutes that it took us to get to orbit, we trained months and months for, and didn't have to use any of that preparation, other than being aware and ready. -Laurel Clark

Of course, the idea of a six months' holiday is enough to make anyone laugh at anything, but I find that besides that I was a good deal harassed and run down, and I am glad to cut off from everything and start fresh. I feel miserably selfish about it all the time. -Richard Harding Davis

Two months later at a party, Bernard pulled me into a closet and proposed. I said yes. -Shelley Duvall

I was not the kind of a principal player that was so in demand that eight or 10 or 12 scripts came per month. -Sidney Poitier

I signed to Def Jam and within two months, I heard that Ja Rule was looking for someone to do a song with. -Christina Milian

Six months later I was in Paris. I was 16, and it all started to happen. -Eva Herzigova

Yeah, I think we did the term Muppets before we got the show Sam and Friends – a few months after I started working. -Jim Henson

If you're doing a large, complicated character with radio controls, it might take a number of people several months to make it and if you're talking about a quick little hand puppet, it could be made in 2 days, so there's enormous range there, and no real easy generalities. -Jim Henson

In 1938, when I had decided that the only way to see the country was in a trailer, and I built the trailer which I still have and lived in it for eighteen months, and learned America from San Diego to the Canadian border, from Miami to New Jersey, and east to west in between. -Leslie Charteris

I studied voice for three months to get rid of my English accent. I changed my hair to blonde. I knew I could be sexy if I had to. -Deborah Kerr

I wanted to make a movie, because the whole life of the movies appealed to me. You work hard for three or four months, then you don't work at all for a couple of months. -Gregory Hines

Sylvia Plath was just a month and a half older than I, and when she committed suicide I was only 30 – and very shocked and sorry. I never knew her personally. -Anne Stevenson

I was very fortunate in having David Fincher, the director come to me. Now I've seen the finished product, I feel that every bit of the nine months we spent on the film was worth it. -Dwight Yoakam

And as part of my activity there, he had indicated he wanted me to work with him on that and conduct the various technical tests. And so a few months later I moved from Southern California up to the Monterey Peninsula where I still live today. -John Sexton

I took a workshop from him a few months after that. That experience changed my whole approach to photography. At that workshop in Yosemite in 1973 I decided I wanted to try and see if I could pursue this for myself, and I'm still trying. -John Sexton

For many in baseball September is a month of stark contrast with April, when everyone had dared to hope. If baseball is a lot like life, as pundits declare, it is because life is more about losing than winning. -John Thorn

It took a long time to get that film made. I went in for it almost right after or like maybe six or seven months after I had my son and actually auditioned for the Regina King part and they just were like, 'No, you're just – you just don't really seem the part.' -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 get a lot of letters. Not only from children but from adults, too. Almost every week, every month, clippings come in from some part of the world where ducks are crossing the street. -Robert McCloskey

At Adaptive Path, we've been doing our own work with Ajax over the last several months, and we're realizing we've only scratched the surface of the rich interaction and responsiveness that Ajax applications can provide. -Jesse James Garrett

Our aim, during our Presidency in the next six months will be to lead this challenge, to show that Europe can function in a mature and responsible way, to start delivering tangible results that show we are taking people's concerns seriously. -John Hutton

Yeah, my dream would be to work for 6 months and then have 6 months to play, just snowboarding, surfing, and going to cool places to listen and be alone and kinda chill out. -Marc Newson

There have been trade-offs every day, every month, every year. There's a lot that I missed and I do have regrets in that area. But I have been able to bring to my family the richness of being a journalist. -Judy Woodruff

I prefer working on films. I like the variety. There is nothing better than playing a bad girl for two months, then playing someone sweet for the next two. Films give you this opportunity. -Amy Weber

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 decided I would go to Chicago and try my luck as a writer after those eight months as a fireman. -Carl Sandburg

When the unwelcome little unborn shall have seen the light my brain will be lightened, and I shall have a clearer mind. Thank God that even this weary nine months shall come to an end and leave me in possession of my own body and my own soul. -Julia Ward Howe

Amin hid nothing. Everybody knew everything. Yet the American Senate only introduced a resolution breaking off trade with Amin three months before his overthrow. -Ryszard Kapuscinski

I remember that during the period leading up to independence in Angola in 1975, I was the only correspondent there at all for three months. -Ryszard Kapuscinski

Kennedy had been assassinated a month or so before. So we walked to the grave of John Kennedy and ended our walking symbolically at the Arlington National Cemetery. -Satish Kumar

But as a result of that, there was, once the show ended, there was this talk for sort of four, five months about what was going to happen, and if we were going to move to Showtime, and if we were going to be bought by ABC or whatever. -Will Arnett

I learned the songs and played the gigs, and then they called me about a month later. They told me they were like super stoked on me and asked me to join their band. -Travis Barker

Well the war lasted for three months, from April of 1994 until the Tutsi army, the exiles as it were, gained control of the country and then it stopped. -Tony Greig

I think the focus of the media changes. At the moment the more electronic stuff like trip-hop was the flavor of the month, just a little while ago. It all depends on the angle, from which point of view you see it. -Stephen Malkmus

And yeah, my handicap was down to a 10 when we were at the thick of it. I trained for six or seven months, golfing every day for six hours, seven days a week, with eight trainers. It was intense. -Shia LaBeouf

We have a VA hospital back home in St. Louis. Like many of our colleagues, we hear continued concerns about the access and the service. I have seen a statistic that more than 60,000 veterans today are waiting more than 6 months for an appointment at a VA hospital. -Russ Carnahan

It may sound a bit like an army barracks, but the truth of the matter is: there must be some time laid aside for arranging, time for working on either a book or an article – I've written two articles in the last four months for the New York Times book review section. -Mel Torme

Most people would rather stay home and watch Casablanca for the fourth time or the 10th time on Turner Classic Movies than go see Matrix 12 or whatever the hell the flavor of the month is. -Joseph Bologna

The terrible, diabolic thing with this disease is that you are always looking behind your shoulder every couple months with the most recent checkup to see whether there is any sign of it, and I thank God to say at this point there is not. -Joe Eszterhas

Take the veto. Bush is the first president since James Garfield in 1881 not to veto a single bill. Garfield only had six months in office; Bush has had over four years. -Jim Cooper

It's nice to be in a situation where the two books that I write for a sort of regular monthly income are also works that I enjoy immensely, rather than them being some kind of bread and butter, do it because you have to do it. -Garth Ennis

Jo left me a few months ago for 10 days. I get this note: I'll come back when the real Ronnie comes back. -Ronnie Wood

Despite the administration's long public information campaign, for many months polls have consistently indicated only 37 percent of those eligible for Medicare say they only partially understand the program. -Mike Fitzpatrick

The President's budget pays for only six months of the war in Iraq and completely overlooks the transition costs of Social Security reform. The Administration always lied about the cost of the Medicare drug bill. -Jim Cooper

I think we had made some tremendous progress in the six months before I left. -Jeffrey Skilling

And also it was a process of, we lifted weights as well, in an effort to train my body to then be able to lift heavier weights when I got in Australia. So that was the first couple of months. -Brandon Routh

I'm not a guy to go in the studio and spend months, let alone years, like some people do. I cannot even be in the studio for a month, it will drive me nuts. -Neal Schon

I'm home about two days a month, and on those I have to pack. -Mary Ann Mobley

I get about 25 letters a month, and I answer every one of them. -Mary Ann Mobley

I sold my most valuable possession, but I knew that because I worked at Hewlett Packard, I could buy the next model calculator the very next month for a lower price than I sold the older one for! -Steve Wozniak

My only failure was the restaurant in Myrtle Beach. I kept it open for four years. It was in a tourist town, it was only busy four and half, five months of the year. But the bills kept coming all year. -Mickey Gilley

It was weird because I'd only been in L.A. for about six months and I had my first feature. -Matthew McGrory

I was in Kansas for about a month, and we worked most of the time in a very small town, so it felt like the production basically took the whole town over. In a way, we were the Martians in Kansas. -Lukas Haas

We need to make it clear that we will withdraw from Iraq within 6 to 9 months – so that the Iraqis will know that they must stand up and defend the opportunity given to them. -John Olver

In the remaining months, we should focus on achieving more robust international involvement in training of Iraqi soldiers, police officers, judges, teachers, and doctors – all key elements needed to end the sectarian and civil conflict and build Iraq's future. -John Olver

I hitchhiked, took trucks 'n' trains – anything that would pick me up. I stopped in Memphis for about six months and they found me and come got me. Stayed about a month an' split again. -John Lee Hooker

I'd rather go to a place and spend a couple of months, get to know it, get to know the people. -Joe Sacco

I invented animals and birds – I had about two dozen. After working on them for six months, I sat down and just for fun wrote two dozen poems to accompany the drawings. It was for no one to every see, but a friend sent me in to an editor. -Jack Prelutsky

In 1916 I was discharged from military service, or rather, given a sort of leave of absence on the understanding that I might be recalled within a few months. And so I was a free man, at least for a while. -George Grosz

We will have close to 3 months of rehearsals to learn about 30 songs. Frank usually rehearsed a band for at least 3 months. If it took him that long to be comfortable we probably would need double the amount, but It's just not financially possible to do so. -Dweezil Zappa

They basically said that if I didn't show up for school they'd mark me present, they wouldn't send the truant officer after me. At 16 I enrolled in something called continuing education. Once a month I'd go out to Jamaica, but I didn't take it seriously. -Dave Van Ronk

At the moment I'm doing this space movie, so I'm obsessed with physics and space travel. I know three months down the line it's gone. Then I'll be able to superficially say stuff about space. -Cillian Murphy

I was 20 years old at Pearl Harbor. I was in the Navy about a year and four months before the war. -Barney Ross

I was speaking to Ridley Scott the other day and he makes a film every 18 months. He's amazing really. -Adrian Lyne

Domesticity has to mean nesting. Otherwise, six months go by, and you don't know where your underwear is. -Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio

The reality is, it will be a significant conflict going for many, many months, if not longer. Saddam Hussein is not a fool. He hasn't been sitting there waiting to get shot for 13 years. -John Hewson

I've been arguing this for months. This is not our war. This is not a war we should be in. Australia's better spending its time negotiating with North Korea. -John Hewson

After 16 months of teaching, consulting, fellowship, and special project activities on matters ranging from conservation to healthcare to international trade, Gov. Ventura appointed me to the Minnesota Court of Appeals. -David Minge

I dated a lot of girls all through high school, and in college I dated a young lady for about eight months. -Danny Pintauro

I went into rehab December 14th, 1996, and got out eight months later? Then I went into a sober living place where I stayed for three months. I've been clean for a good year and a half. -Marc Wallice

In fact, our monthly trade deficit figure is so huge it equals the entire annual budget of our Department of Veterans Affairs. Veterans fought to make us free from foreign tyranny, but the new tyranny is taking a different form. -Marcy Kaptur

My parents came to visit every two months and brought plenty of books. -Mathias Rust

In my case, I pay a standard premium to participate in the Federal Employees' Health Benefits Plan for my wife and myself out of each month's paycheck. -Virgil Goode

My knee is as strong as it was before, if not stronger, and it's a matter of getting my leg strong. I lost six years of strength in about six month's time, so it's going to take another year or two to get that leg back up to full strength, but I'm good to go so far. -Picabo Street

1 month ago the American people stopped to remember the third anniversary of the beginning of the Iraq war. We thought first and foremost of the selflessness, patriotism and heroism by our troops, our National Guard and Reserves. -Rosa DeLauro

After eight months of one of the most intensive public and private investigations in American history, no one – no one – has come up with a shred of evidence that I had anything to do with the anthrax letters. I have never worked with anthrax. I know nothing about this matter. -Steven Hatfill

You could be going to have supper with someone who happens to be male, and all of a sudden he is your boyfriend of nine months… and I am cheating on my existing boyfriend. -Caprice Bourret

One of my first jobs was at the Boston Globe. I worked in the sports department six months a year. When I was ready to graduate, the sports editor gave me a job as a schoolboy sports writer. -Will McDonough

I'm not trying to be coy here; we're just not prepared to give a lot of detail about our thinking, but we will be making some announcements in the coming months. -Jim Walton

So, when it comes to eating healthy, it's just doing the right thing. And it's not something you have to do 365 days a year, but I think it's something you have to do 25 days a month. Let's put it that way. -Mike Ditka

We spent a month in Japan last year, a week in Istanbul for the United Nations, and nearly three months in my native Nova Scotia, where my two brothers have homes; and we'll go back there this summer. -Robert MacNeil

Month after month, Wizard Academy equips people who want to make a difference. This is why journalists and scientists and artists and educators and business owners and advertising professionals and ministers are attracted to our little school. -Roy H. Williams

Some of the kimonos took as long as four to five months to make, with all the layers that go into it. -Colleen Atwood

I was six months old at the time that I was taken, with my mother and father, from Sacramento, California, and placed in internment camps in the United States. -Robert Matsui

I think the saddest moment in my life just happened two months ago. My old nightclub partner passed away, Phil Erickson down in Atlanta. He – I owe him everything. He put me in the business and taught me about everything I know. -Dick Van Dyke

No, I did night clubs right here in Los Angeles. My partner, Phil Erickson, put me in the business, a guy from my home town, a dear friend who we just lost a couple of months ago. -Dick Van Dyke

For the novice runner, I'd say to give yourself at least 2 months of consistently running several times a week at a conversational pace before deciding whether you want to stick with it. Consistency is the most important aspect of training at this point. -Frank Shorter

I came into the world two months too soon, I was in such a hurry. -Georg Brandes

Over a spell of about three years, I played a series of roles that were, for me, all very different, but most of them came out within a six-month period. They all dealt with a kind of dark territory that in some cases had been mined before in movies. -Kevin Spacey

Then the album created a tremendous furor and got me kicked off Christian television for two months, and then restored after they settled down and listened to the music and realized there was nothing wrong with it. -Pat Boone

At present I answer about 100 letters a month, and read 300 emails. -Piers Anthony

For me, I have to say that I like to work a lot too, but I like not working better. The perfect scenario is when you just worked and you know something's coming up, then you have four, five, six months off. But you know you're going to have a job later. -Salma Hayek

A good thing is I've been playing tennis I think every day for the last two months. I really haven't had a day off. I've been doing things that I did used to do. -Stefan Edberg

Since a month, two months ago, you know, I've started hitting the ball well. I'm playing some really good tennis. That really helps. I sort of have to motivate myself to get pumped up. It really helps my game a lot. -Stefan Edberg

The band's never taken a year off. Last August we decided to take one, and three months in I was bored to tears. -Steven Tyler

I'm most at home on the stage. I was carried onstage for the first time when I was six months old. -Alan Alda

I'm not able to go in with an act that I use month to month year to year all the time. It's constantly evolving and changing and that keeps me on my toes but certainly adds to the challenge. -Alan Thicke

She kindly laments that I am not of the party, and to be sure I honour great ladies, and I admire great wits, but I am of the same opinion in regard to assemblies that is held concerning oysters, that they are never good in a month that has not the letter R in it. -Elizabeth Montagu

A lot of those songs are actually about Sarah, who I was recently divorced from about five or six months ago. I'd been seeing her off and on since I was about nineteen, so a lot of those songs are about her. -Gene Ween

Sometimes that's a year, sometimes it's 18 months, where all I'm doing is taking notes. I'm reconstructing the story from the back to the front so that I know where the front is. -John Irving

A month before the season I stop putting ketchup on my french fries. -Mario Lemieux

The book, you understand, was not written for publication. It was the portrayal of my emotions, the analysis of my own soul life during three months of my nineteenth year. I wrote then all the time, just as I do now, but, though the book is in diary form, it is not a diary. -Mary MacLane

The directors thought, They understand nothing in the real economy, in real life. They read some stupid books, and they came from the moon to the earth, and maybe in one month they will disappear. -Anatoly Chubais

In 1958, we decided to go to Australia. We were there for six months, and all the shows went well. -Ernie Wise

We typically don't choose our athletes until about a month prior to the Games because anything can happen. -Shannon Miller

I lived in a hotel across the street from Disneyland for a month. -Steve Cropper

I come back to the same thing: We've got the greatest pipeline in the company's history in the next 12 months, and we've had the most amazing financial results possible over the last five years, and we're predicting being back at double-digit revenue growth in fiscal year '06. -Steve Ballmer

Basically it starts with four months of training, just basic stretching, kicking and punching. Then you come to the choreography and getting ready to put the dance together. -Keanu Reeves

Sometimes when you make a film you can go away for three months and then come back and live your life. But this struck a much deeper chord. I don't have the ability yet to speak about it in an objective. -Keanu Reeves

I've been spending this last month trying to find four outfits to wear to the different premieres of The Two Towers. It's hard work. -Liv Tyler

I have four to five months, tops, per year to give to my acting work. -Meryl Streep

I kept an interested eye on the transfer window in England, which opened and closed last month, and the lack of frantic activity just goes to show the current financial state of the game right now. -David Ginola

After a month or so in St. Louis, we were looking around desperately for a way to draw a few people into the ball park, it being perfectly clear by that time that the ball club wasn't going to do it unaided. -Bill Veeck

By working hard we could make an average of about $5 a week. We would have made more but had to provide our own machines, which cost us $45, we paying for them on the installment plan. We paid $5 down and $1 a month after that. -Rose Schneiderman

I learned the business in about two months, and then made as much as the others, and was consequently doing quite well when the factory burned down, destroying all our machines – 150 of them. This was very hard on the girls who had paid for their machines. -Rose Schneiderman

In my day, at 12 years old, which was 38 years ago, we worked out in summer months for two and a half hours. Today someone in that age group might work out for four hours, two hours in the morning and two at night. -Mark Spitz

Like anywhere, we had to make people understand that we were there with good intentions, and that we were there with respect. We started making contacts with the people in the neighborhood three months before shooting began, so that everyone involved was comfortable. -Mathieu Kassovitz

In France they spend six months training policemen, then they give them a gun and put them on the streets, and I don't know that that's enough. The film's not against the police – although I think that if someone wants to be a cop there's got to be a problem. -Mathieu Kassovitz

Once I was condemned to three months' absolute silence. As I could not speak, I wrote a book. -Nana Mouskouri

The conflict in Darfur could escalate to where we're seeing 100,000 victims per month. -Nicholas Kristof

Short stories are wonderful and extremely challenging, and the joy of them, because it only takes me three or four months to write, I can take more risks with them. It's just less of your life invested. -Anthony Doerr

Empire Square production finishes in about a month's time, so at the moment, right now, I'm just completely full on Empire Square. There's no time to do anything else. But there's a few things on the back burner, including another Blur album before too long. -Dave Rowntree

I'm opening a store at the end of the month in the New York meatpacking district. I'm launching a line of bedding this summer, and I am writing a book that will be out next January. -Genevieve Gorder

And in nineteen seventy two I almost wasn't, on the team, but I knew about it just before Olympic Games for three months before this why this is was not very good for me. I'd been ready to go, you know. -Olga Korbut

So if you're on tour for eight months, a year… or whatever it is you definitely don't want arguments and I'm happy to say that I've always had a really nice bunch of people around me all the time. -Joan Armatrading

In addition, California spends nearly $1 billion a year in Medi-Cal services for an average of 780,000 illegal immigrants a month, over and above emergency health services. -Elton Gallegly

I love what I do. When a month goes by and I'm not working, I'm miserable. -Roselyn Sanchez

Some of the best news stories start in gossip. Monica Lewinsky certainly was gossip in the beginning. I had heard it months before I printed it. -Matt Drudge

Don't forget that compared to a grownup person every baby is a genius. Think of the capacity to learn! The freshness, the temperament, the will of a baby a few months old! -May Sarton

It's like going into the Senate. You know, the first time you get there, you're all excited, 'My God, how did I ever get here?' Then, about six months later, you say, 'How the hell did the rest of them get here?' -Mike Gravel

One reason I do the live shows – and the monthly speeches at public radio stations – is to remind myself that people hear the show, that it has an audience, that it exists in the world. It's so easy to forget that. -Ira Glass

To write it, it took three months; to conceive it three minutes; to collect the data in it all my life. -F. Scott Fitzgerald

Every month that we do not have an economic recovery package 500 million Americans lose their jobs. -Nancy Pelosi

Roger Revelle died of a heart attack three months after the Cosmos story was printed. Oh, how I wish he were still alive today. He might be able to stop this scientific silliness and end the global warming scam. He might well stand beside me as a global warming denier. -John Coleman

My father is an actor, so he brought me into his agency when I was young. It wasn't something I wanted to do until high school, when I started taking theater and really liked it. Then an agent found me and wanted me to come out to Los Angeles and give it a shot. I gave myself six months, but it only took me like a week to get a job. -Jensen Ackles

I began directing episodes, which was a great light every couple of months. We never short-changed our audience, but it became something that you had to work at rather than something that was a pleasure. -Patrick Stewart

I love my lifestyle now, but at the end of nine months, you're toast. You are toast. It's like running a marathon. You can't think while you're doing it. Especially when different directors come in who are not part of the posse, the circle. -Christopher Meloni

I'd like to go away for six months and learn to kiteboard and windsurf. I love pinochle, I love chess and I love windsurfing. -Christopher Meloni

I felt (a) it was a great role and (b) I wanted to stay in town. I wanted to stop going to these four month and five month gigs up in Toronto or Montreal or Vancouver or down in Mexico. I wanted to be around my son, Max. This came along and I was like, 'I really want to play this guy!' -John C. McGinley

As an actress, there were so many months, years even, when I didn't get work, when I wanted to quit. -Mariska Hargitay

Many thanks for all of the love and good wishes sent our way from my friends out there in cartoon land… the only place where a nine month pregnant woman can still play a hot goth chick in a belly shirt! -Grey DeLisle

I think we're in the beginning of a bull market. When a bull market begins, nine months later the economy turns around. -Sumner Redstone

I lived in L.A. for a few months. It seemed like no one there had parents. Or if they did have parents, they would deny it. -Catherine O'Hara

If I could create one job in the private sector by helping to grow a business, that would be one more than Congress has created in the last six months. -Evan Bayh

The unions and the auto companies have been unable to put a deal together that fundamentally restructures the industry. It needs to get done. The only way it's really going to get done is in bankruptcy court. They should have done it six months ago they should do it now. -Tim Pawlenty

Well, here's what I think. I mean, the people are saying, 'We don't want it,' and the Democrats are saying, 'We don't care. We're going to pass it anyway.' And so for the next three months, Washington will be consumed with the Democrats trying to jam this through in a very messy procedure an unpopular health care bill. -Lamar Alexander

I hope all of you are going to fill out your census form when it comes in the mail next month. If you don't return the form the area you live in might get less government money and you wouldn't want that to happen, would you. -Andy Rooney

We believe the Senate language provides for federal subsidies for abortions. Plus there's a language in there where you have to pay one dollar per month, every enrollee, to pay for a fund for reproductive rights which include abortion. And that's totally against federal law. So we are saying take that out. -Bart Stupak

I can tell you one thing, Iran is closer to developing nuclear weapons today than it was a week ago, or a month ago or a year ago. It's just moving on with its efforts. -Benjamin Netanyahu

We have stabilized our economy. We took over a very sick economy, and we were hemorrhaging 750,000 jobs a month. We have stopped the hemorrhaging. In fact, we had 140,000 job growth last month. And that's what I call progress. -Jim Clyburn

It's pretty clear that over the last three months the economy has paused. And it's also pretty clear the American people are still demanding and asking the question, 'Where are the jobs?' And the reason we don't have new jobs is because of the job-killing agenda pursued by President Obama and his allies in the Congress. -John Boehner

My mother, she had a very good attitude toward money. I'm very grateful for the fact that we had to learn to save. I used to get like 50 pence a week, and I'd save it for like five months. And then I'd spend it on Christmas presents. I'd save up like eight pounds. It's nothing, but we did that. -Gemma Arterton

It's so weird that I went to rehab. I always said that I would die before I went to rehab. But I thought, 'I'm going to stay here tonight.' And I stayed there for a month. It was great. -Lindsay Lohan

I have been celibate for about six or seven months, I think. I would rather just make out and kiss someone instead of sex. I'm single. I said I would be single for a year and I am. -Paris Hilton

The key thing is, even if you only have a couple of hours a month, those two hours shoulder-to-shoulder, next to one student, concentrated attention, shining this beam of light on their work, on their thoughts and their self-expression, is going to be absolutely transformative, because so many of the students have not had that ever before. -Dave Eggers

The damage done to this country by its own misconduct in the last few months and years, to its very heart and soul, is far greater and longer lasting than any damage that any terrorist could possibly inflict upon us. -Theodore C. Sorensen

I came to the conclusion months ago, and I said it to members of Congress, that the only way people are going to fully appreciate what this reform is if we pass it and implement it and it becomes not a caricature but a reality, and I still believe that. So I think it will be easier to sell it moving forward than it was to this point. -David Axelrod

And the whole Oscar thing, that is just surreal: you spend months and months doing promotion, and then come back to reality with this golden thing in your hands. You put it in the office and then you just have to look at it sitting on the shelf. And, after about two weeks, you go: 'What is that doing there?' -Javier Bardem

'Batman' took 10 months to film, and by the time I stopped working on it, it took a long time before my English accent came out again. I was actually having to try for it. -Christian Bale

There have been many times when you spend a number of months and the finished product is not what you wanted to see. And 'Batman Begins' was what I wanted to see. -Christian Bale

Many of the articles printed over the last few months have ended up painting a picture of me that is more than a little distorted. -Phil Collins

I have written some songs, but I would really call what I've done poetry at the end of the day, because I'll sit with my guitar for hours and hours on end for, like, a week and then I won't touch it for a month. I also just have no confidence. And you know what? I don't have time, because I'd rather be doing other things, like knitting. -Amanda Seyfried

But, as we've seen over the last several months, the people in this country are very dissatisfied with the direction that this administration is taking this country. And what we heard last night was absolutely the ignoring of that fact. It was: We're going to continue with this agenda. In fact, we're going to double down on healthcare. -Eric Cantor

We were very rich culturally. One Sunday each month, we would do this thing called Chamber Pots at somebody's house. A classical music group would come over and we'd have dinner. There were thirty people – parents and kids – and we'd sit on the floor and listen to this beautiful music. -Kristin Davis

I wouldn't have made it past the first round of American Idol auditions. It was months before our first song was recorded. The guys were like, 'Just seeng!' And I was like, 'I don't know how to seeng! Can't I just play the triangle?' -Malin Akerman

The past several months I have been able to meet with people across this country. One thing is clear: America craves for real solutions to the problems we face. That's why I'm running for President of the United States. -Herman Cain

I don't know what's going to happen. I'm flavor of the month at the moment, but somebody else is going to roll around the corner in three months' time. I just want to keep working. I can't stop! -Michael Fassbender

Nothing's sacred anymore. Those girls and I got so close. They were painting me naked every day for months. It was kind of like going to a really bizarre sleepover. It's what you guys imagine we do: One naked girl and seven pairs of hands all over her. -Jennifer Lawrence

The economic recession in America wasn't caused by bad luck; it was caused by bad Republican policies. But the Republican candidates are doubling down on the same flawed policies that led to the loss of 3.6 million jobs in the final months of 2008 and gravely affected middle class families across America. -Debbie Wasserman Schultz

Four months after we finished shooting, I'd been in New Orleans shooting another movie and my agent and I were having a bite to eat – actually in London – and he's sitting there and goes, 'Wow, I just can't believe how ripped you are.' -Ryan Reynolds

Look, you're on the set for six months, with someone who's rooting to be attracted to you, and you're rooting to be attracted to them. I never understood the separation of work and life in that situation. But the time I spent with Megan was our own thing. -Shia LaBeouf

Somebody talked me into writing an autobiography about six or seven years ago. And I said I'd try. We talked into a tape recorder, and after a couple of months, I said, To hell with it. I was so depressed. It was like saying, 'This is the end.' I was more interested in what the hell was coming the next day or the next week. -Rupert Murdoch

It's certainly not easy having to spend a lot of time apart, and having a five-year-old child who's got to be at school. So we need to learn how to organize our time really well because for months we will be in two different countries. -David Thewlis

It wasn't a good idea to work on 'Naked' in the first months of a marriage. I was living apart from my wife in a flat overflowing with books I was reading for the part. -David Thewlis

The way I relax is I think, 'I haven't got anything coming up.' I like to know there are months ahead when I've got nothing. -Julie Walters

I feel like some of the best talent is on TV right now, with the writing, acting and great directors. I've also been looking for the consistency of work that TV provides for you. And, I always thought it would be really interesting to live with a character for months, if not years. -Christina Ricci

I started writing short stories. I tried writing horror, mystery, science fiction. I joined a little critique group here in town and ran my stories past them. After about three years, I tackled my first novel, Subterranean. It took me 11 months to write. -James Rollins

And as an American colleague said to me several months ago, he said, 'I think the challenge in Jordan – and, again, this is for the rest of the Middle East – we need to define what center is. And once we can define what center is to a Jordanian, then we can decide what's left and what's right of that. -Abdullah II of Jordan

Employee of the month is a good example of how somebody can be both a winner and a loser at the same time. -Demetri Martin

I've just been growing right along. It's painful, but it's a great pain, and I like suffering for great results. It's like going to the gym. It hurts really bad at first, but after a couple of months and after that diet, you're looking so hot. -Mary J. Blige

So when I got the chance to do my first talk show, 50 years ago last month, I never had any writers. There was no budget – it was just me and the camera and my friend who was the director. I talked about what I'd done that week. -Regis Philbin

I work three months really hard, nonstop, and then I take a month off. Then I do it all over again. I work hard but I give myself four breaks a year. -Tyler Perry

My family never missed a visit in eight months, ever. I cried coming out. I didn't cry coming in. There's a big difference. I believe that God put me there for a reason, Incarceration is serious. -Foxy Brown

In 2000, when my partner Ben Horowitz was CEO of the first cloud computing company, Loudcloud, the cost of a customer running a basic Internet application was approximately $150,000 a month. -Marc Andreessen

We have a beautiful little boy who is 18 months old and another little boy to be born in October. We are very excited about that. -Drew Brees

It took me six months to redeem myself at least to have another chance to at least have her get to know me and let her know I was at least a decent guy and to give me a shot. And here we are, we've been married seven years. -Drew Brees

I guess we're all lucky to be in this profession where you can be someone else for two or three months on a film shoot. I find it restful. Vachement agreable. -Jean Dujardin

I want to work with a director who becomes my brother, my father, for two months. You give yourself over to that person. -Jean Dujardin

The way that I look at it is that, when we film for eight months straight for a new 'Jackass' movie, I know that I'm going to wind up with at least two broken bones. I don't know when it's going to happen, but you can't contemplate how you're going to fall and what's going to happen. -Bam Margera

Listen, if you said to me, 'Adam Shankman is going to direct you in a musical and you have six months to learn how to tap,' I'd practice till I was blue in the face. I would do it because I'm so headstrong and think I can do anything. But just to show up and sing a little ditty, no. -Leslie Bibb

'Somebody That I Used to Know,' like a lot of the record, was a bit of a struggle to finish. It was written fairly quickly – I wrote it in November 2010 – but it took six months to find Kimbra and really realize she was the right vocalist to make the female part come to life. There were constant hurdles. -Gotye

I have this desire to just while away weeks, months and years. It took me two years to make this record but that was with me trying to condense my process and not disappear down the rabbit hole with all the cool things I've collected. I could take 10 years and not explore everything I want to with these instruments. -Gotye

When I'm writing, which is 8-9 months out of the year, I'm in a concerted writing pace, where I work 5 days a week for at least a few hours a day, maybe a little bit more. But I won't work for more than 2 hours at a time. I'll work for a couple hours and take a break. -Amy Ray

Life in LA is not lying in the sun for months. It is having a 4pm meeting and leaving at noon to sit in traffic for four hours. It's not glam. -Billy Boyd

For four to six months at a time, I would barely eat. I lived on a diet of Melba toast, carrots, and black coffee. -Alanis Morissette

And Clinton was like that – he saw the whole playing field. He didn't just see the event that he was at or the circumstances of that week or that month. He saw the whole playing field all the time. -Dee Dee Myers

And at no point did making 'Brothers McMullen' feel like work or hardship. It was really just a matter of 11 days of fun over the course of 8 months. -Edward Burns

I spent four months in Prague in these blue rooms reacting to nothing and you basically place your faith in the hands of the director and the special effects co-coordinator and you keep your fingers crossed and hope that the creatures look really scary. -Edward Burns

People that went to art house theatre have more options, I used to go, but now think any movie can be delivered in a red envelope three months after it's released so why not watch it on my flat screen in the comfort of home. -Edward Burns

I'm used to being someone else 10 months out of the year. -Elisha Cuthbert

Six months ago, I traveled to India to see firsthand what the prime minister of that country calls a national shame. It is the systematic, widespread, shocking elimination of India's baby girls. Some 50,000 female fetuses are aborted every month in India. -Elizabeth Vargas

On 'Into The Wild' I spent months risking my life and on 'Speed Racer' I spent 60 days acting in front of a green screen. No danger to my physical self, but I sure had to use my imagination. -Emile Hirsch

I can't just react on the strength of an email and three pages of synopsis, and say I'm going to take off for three months of my life. -Emmanuelle Beart

Veteran print editors and reporters at places like the 'Times' and 'The New Yorker' manage to feed and clothe their families without costing their companies a million bucks a month, and they produce a great deal more valuable reporting and analysis than the network news stars do. -Eric Alterman

Sophomore year, I got hit in the stomach playing football, and I was out of school for four months. I was in the hospital for two and then out of school for two. -Chad Michael Murray

From when I was a really small girl on, I would pick every fabric, every color on the walls, and I was always redecorating. Like once every couple of months I would redecorate my room. I had a full wall that was all collage – the entire wall – when I was in junior high. And then it would kind of morph with me as I was growing. -Chloe Sevigny

I played with a fracture in my foot for seven months without knowing it. -Colin Cooper

I took two or three months and I came up with a reason that I thought was enough and I went with it: if there is a God he's definitely not benevolent. We should mean less to him than ants. And if there is a God or there are gods they would value, more than anything, free will. -Tarsem Singh

The other day I got a text from a boy, but it wasn't hot. I mean, if you're going to text me every day, you haven't seen me for months and you're trying to seduce me, you'd better spice up that text and make it more exciting than 'How was your day? I hope you're having a beautiful one.' Sadly, I haven't been doing a lot of kissing lately. -Chloe Sevigny

I get offered movies probably twice a month and they are just generally bad. -John Corbett

I was homeless for about 8 months, I refused to live with my dad or anyone for that matter. So I stayed somewhere that had no hot water, ever, no heat, I told myself I have to be strong and get through it on my own. -Eric West

I can't be bothered to go to the gym, though. I honestly just can't be bothered – it's the most boring thing on Earth. I have tried and every six months I go 'right, I'm going to the gym'. Then I do it for two weeks and get so bored by it. -Carol Vorderman

To the new 'Apprentice' candidates I would say to follow your gut instincts, be yourself and get ready to work hard for the next few months. Oh, and try to have some fun! -Bill Rancic

A baby's existence for the first three months is a one-way street. One person is doing all the work and the other is crying, sleeping and pooping. So the first moment when you're actually able to do something and they acknowledge your presence, that's a big deal. A very big deal. -Colin Hanks

I spent a couple of months just riding a bike doing my own training in the streets. -Jonny Lee Miller

Eighteen months ago I weighed 95kg and had a 40-inch waist. Now the waist is down to 34 inches and I weigh nearly 98kg. -Lee Westwood

I have lost a little bit of flexibility, but the doctors say with any kind of torn ligament it is not uncommon for the injury to take 16 months to be 100 percent healed. -Michael Chang

For an hour every day, I did something. I was on the elliptical or the treadmill, and if someone asked me to go to a class – whether it was spinning, boxing, yoga, you name it – I went. By the end of the month, I felt so good, I just kept going. I didn't want to lose my momentum. -Molly Sims

When you work with the same people for 10 years, they become family. Now when I see them – it might not be for nine months – but when I see them, it's great. -Molly Sims

I was in Beijing a month ago working on the smoke project in collaboration with an architect there, and I was asked very directly whether it was safe to breathe in the smoke. They did not have confidence in the museum not to use harmful smoke, and they certainly didn't have confidence that the city would protect them from harmful smoke. -Olafur Eliasson

My parents said that I was nine months old and would throw myself out of the crib onto the floor continually. As soon as they left the room after putting me back in they'd hear a big bump and I'd be on the floor again. -Johnny Knoxville

A lot of children don't find forever homes because they're on that special-needs list, even if it's because of something as simple as her mother smoked cigarettes for a month, not knowing she was pregnant. -Katherine Heigl

I can't cultivate a relationship with my child if it's between takes. I tried that on a movie and realized, 'This is not going to work.' It will work some of the year, but not 12 months a year. -Katherine Heigl

France, after the month of May, will share trust with the current leadership of the United States which, on many subjects, has tended to take useful positions in our view. -Francois Hollande

I got a journalism degree. I started doing journalism – I interned at 'Cosmopolitan' magazine in the 1970s, which probably wasn't the best place for me, and I spent six or nine months freelancing. Anyway, I wasn't that good at it. -Anne M. Mulcahy

I sat down and collected all of our eleven sales for the past six months and I added them all together and divided by eleven. I then took that average and presented it as the average price for a Manhattan apartment. The media ate it up. -Barbara Corcoran

If your house has been on the market for more than four months, take it off the market and re-list it in two months as 'new.' -Barbara Corcoran

If a man could give birth it would be to a book – it's an 18-month gestation period. -Kevin O'Leary

The practical reality of managing cars in the family – I do 36-month leases. I think they're horrible investments. And you want to give them back after their warranty is over. -Kevin O'Leary

I use as high SPF as I can get, and I live under a hat like a mushroom all the time. Someone said they're worried about their kids getting older and doing drugs, and I got this look of horror on my face and thought, 'What if my girls don't wear hats?' But at 13 months old, they could say 'hat.' -Marcia Cross

I make about two movies a year outside the 'True Blood' schedule. I work on a great show six months a year, then outside that I get to satisfy whatever creative urges I have. It's a great position, especially for a single guy like me. -Ryan Kwanten

When I was in kindergarten, it took me like three months to learn how to spell my own name. But that's also not saying much considering I'm a terrible speller. -Matt Czuchry

I have a new little stray dog that I've had for about a month now. His name is Mikey Mohawk – he's this little terrier with a natural Mohawk. My friend found him hit by a car on Pico Boulevard. -Krysten Ritter

I've always lived out of a suitcase. I was in a new city every three months. When I was a model, I traveled the world, and as an actor you're traveling from movie set to movie set. So I've never been in one place long enough for anything super-bad to happen. -Krysten Ritter

I just went off for two months traveling around Europe on a motorcycle and pretty much turned my phone off. I did 5,000 miles with my dad. We went through Holland, Germany, Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia, Montenegro, Italy… and then I did Spain and France by myself. -Michael Fassbender

I'm fighting for the Commonwealth title on Saturday and I believe I'll be ready for a world title shot in the next 18 months. -Billy Joe Saunders

I've had two fights within a month and I can't ask for more than that. -Billy Joe Saunders

I try to squeeze in a workout whenever I can, even if it's doing squats with my 7-month-old in the kitchen or jumping on the trampoline with my 5-year-old. -Jennie Finch

I love to run. I was challenged to run the New York marathon four months after having my youngest son, and since running isn't a big part of softball, the thought of a marathon was a stretch for me. -Jennie Finch

I'd fallen in love with a woman but she broke up with me and I was devastated. Six months later, I went into a suicidal depression from the break-up of the relationship, but I resolved to not do what my friends had done. And so I reached out for help. -Aron Ralston

I could have just received royalty checks every month by lending my name to a collection, but I didn't want to do that. My name is a reflection of me. -Nicky Hilton

I've probably gone a month or two without playing guitar, just because I've gotten so burnt on it touring all year or whatever. -Jonny Lang

I live a very normal life. I have friends, and I've always gone to school. The part that's not normal is that I've been working since I was 9 months old, but at the same time, it's completely normal to me. -Ashley Olsen

If I get a cold, it lasts for a month. -Delta Goodrem

I've got no anti-America or anti-Hollywood kick, it's just that I never wanted to go and kick my heels around L.A. for six months hoping something would happen. -Martin Freeman

Little pieces of advice like that can provide us with months' worth of entertainment. -Mike Shinoda

When you are facing the wilderness on your own, you have a totally different attitude to someone who works in government or who has a monthly cheque. -Rick Santelli

When I started off as an actress, I did at a play at the Taper Too Theatre here in Los Angeles, called 'In The Abyss Of Coney Island.' That was more of a dramatic play. It was a small theater house. This was the first time I was literally on the road, doing a play, for four months. -Vivica A. Fox

'SNL' is the first real job I've held for more than a month and a half. -Hannibal Buress

I spent two months in Fredericksburg, Texas, when I was 8, while my father shot a movie, and I loved it. I just embraced the whole cowboy culture. I got myself a pair of awesome boots and a cowboy hat. -Alexander Skarsgard

Chemistry cannot be manufactured or forced, so Wild Flag was not a sure thing, it was a 'maybe,' a 'possibility.' But after a handful of practice sessions, spread out over a period of months, I think we all realized that we could be greater than the sum of our parts. -Carrie Brownstein

I get insecure about a lot of things. In my line of work, unfortunately, your appearance is important, and I'm always like, 'Am I going to the gym enough this month? Have I been taking care of myself?' I get insecure about things from time to time. -Jesse McCartney

The reality is that a consumer culture which chucks out its iPhones for a new version every nine months is completely unsustainable, because Earth has already reached the tipping point. 'The General Strike' attempts to personalize these issues and encourage listeners to look for a new model. -Justin Sane

I am going to be on 'True Blood.' It was really exciting. I had a great time shooting it. I spent the last nine months shooting this season and it was very secretive, very sexy, a lot of blood and fangs. -Scott Foley

My goal is people associate November with COPD awareness month as much as they notice October with breast cancer and pink. That'd be a great thing if it happened. The fact that COPD kills more people than breast cancer and diabetes put together should raise some red flags. -Danica Patrick

I've set aside a nice chunk of my advertising revenue each month for giveaways, like a KitchenAid mixer. I like buying them for the audience, because without the audience I wouldn't have the blog or the revenue in the first place. -Ree Drummond

When I finish a film, I like to drastically change my appearance. I get sick of looking at the same thing in the mirror for months at a time. So when a film's over, I'll do something like shave my head. -Ethan Embry

Three years ago, this week, a newly elected President Obama faced the American people and he said, look, if I can't turn this economy around in three years, I'll be looking at a one-term proposition, and we're here to collect! You know the results. It's been 35 months of unemployment above 8 percent. -Mitt Romney

The movies people don't talk about or remember after six months' time don't really matter. -Eric Bana

A thousand restaurants close every month. They re-open, and that's good for America. Nobody's rescuing them. They employ people, too. If we let them go bankrupt, the factories don't go away, the creative people don't go away. They get employed more productively by others. -John Stossel

Don't judge me. You wanna judge me, put on a black gown and get a gavel. Get in line with the rest of them that's about to judge me. I got court dates every other month. It's me against the world – that's how I feel. -Lil Wayne

I do 280 episodes of TV a year, write 15 recipes for the magazine, and publish an annual book. With all of that, we try to get one weekend a month with Isaboo at our home in the Adirondacks to relax and recharge. -Rachael Ray

When I came to the Food Network, I didn't want to do a cooking show. I told Kathleen Finch for nine months I didn't want to do a cooking show, I wanted to do a home-and-garden show. -Sandra Lee

There's not one food that causes diabetes. What causes Type II diabetes is being overweight… I've just come to grips, over the past four or five months, with my diabetes. -Paula Deen

I am utterly in love with my son and my boyfriend and live in the most magical place on Earth. I've been in Norway for ten months now and I have loved every minute of it. -Rebecca Loos

When I was 15, my parents left town for a month. They hid the keys to the car, but I found them. That month, I drove my stepdad's Thunderbird Super Coupe into Manhattan every day, and I would crank Cypress Hill as I flew around the city, racing the taxis. -Danny Masterson

At one point people in al Qaeda were actually drawing monthly paychecks when they were based in Sudan. -Peter Bergen

We have the crime of the century every six months. So for people like me who enjoy, you know, taking these stories and writing about them, the material is endless. -John Grisham

It's just me and my 6-month-old puppy. I am not dating anyone. -Bridget Hall

At school, I basically wear one pair of jeans and sneakers for months on end. -Jordana Brewster

I've realized as well after five years of being on the road that if I'm going to four or five months of my life to something even if I'm overpaid, it's four or five months of my life away from home, away from my son, away from family and friends. I better believe in it on some level even if it's a big movie. -Colin Farrell

One has this image of the Soviet state and the Red Army as being extremely disciplined but in the first four months of 1945 their soldiers were completely out of control. -Antony Beevor

I grew up very nice. But after college, my father said you're on you own. So I was dead broke for years. So I know what it's – I lived on 600 dollars a month for six years. I know what it's like to be dead broke. I feel bad for people who are struggling now. -Jon Lovitz

My sister Tiffany told me years ago, 'You can never write about me.' Then she called six months ago and said she wanted to be in a story. She was worried people thought I didn't like her. -David Sedaris

I was chomping at the bit to get my career started – so after I took all the theater courses at Brooklyn College I enrolled in a two year program at AMDA in the city (The American Musical Dramatic Academy) I was there for 6 months and loved it. -Didi Conn

I think I was very lucky that I didn't get well-known until my early thirties. If it had happened when I was younger, you might have seen me falling out of nightclubs. I think I conducted myself as a much better human being because I was already married when all that came along (I got married five months after I got the role as Will). -Eric McCormack

I think I had only been working nine months when I got 'Star Trek,' and it was huge. It was very overwhelming. So that opened my eyes a bit at an early age, kind of how not be frightened when walking into a responsibility of something like that. -Tom Hardy

I have my once-a-month nachos, but it's soy cheese and turkey chili on it, so it's somewhat safe. But it's still a big vice for me, because I have a big bowl of it. -Jenny McCarthy

I think the days of putting your feet up when you're pregnant are long gone. Women who are nine months pregnant now have to work till the bitter end – they don't get to be on TV. -Amy Poehler

I don't like long tours. I find it much easier to go out for a short spurt every month. -Bryan Adams

I'm amazed every time I come back to Vancouver at how much it's changed. You go away for a month and there's three more skyscrapers. -Bryan Adams

If I would get an album out every eight months and if I would write songs that were more up-tempo and try to focus more on making singles, then I could probably get more attention. But I don't think the albums would be very fun to listen to, and it would be a drag for me. -Chris Isaak

I am attached to the west coast of Scotland – it's gorgeous to look at and challenging. You have to contend with the possibility of being blown away or rained on. And in the summer months you can be eaten alive by midges. -Clive Anderson

If something is good, it doesn't go out of style every six months. The fashion wheel of today doesn't have to go as quickly as it was pushed in the 80's. -Helmut Lang

The average American teenager sends or receives 75 text messages a day, though one girl in Sacramento managed to handle an average of 10,000 every 24 hours for a month. -Pico Iyer

The M-1 is the best tank in the world, if you can get it to the war in time, if you have a Saddam Hussein who'll give you seven months to move your forces in. -Ralph Peters

I could walk and swim at 10 months old. -Brandon Cruz

I guess I am just not the marrying type. I have given it a few chances, and it just goes haywire after a month or two. I am on wife number five right now, maybe five's a charm? -Vince Neil

I just became a vegetable for three months. I couldn't talk to people. I was very ill and that was part of the reason I left college. -Adam Ant

With my runners now, they get two month-long breaks during the year. -Alberto Salazar

Regardless of how good or bad a collection might be, it's a letdown after the show is over. It's done. Something you've worked on for months is just over. -Oscar de la Renta

You reach a point in your career when the weeks turn into a month or more of the phone not ringing. -Sam J. Jones

I was signed by L.A. Reid on Arista Records when I was 16. He understood me and believed in me. Arista folded and I got put on RCA or whatever, then there were new people there, and every six months it changes and more new people come in. -Avril Lavigne

Every time I think I have something under control, it changes and I don't have it under control. I think it takes several years to get there. Jade is 19 months old, so right now I'm on alert all the time. And as a mom I think you're constantly worrying about things. -Giada De Laurentiis

I don't diet, I don't do fads, I've just decided to not eat carbs. So no more bread and pasta for the month. I can't live without chocolate, though. I've always got a bar in my handbag. It has to be 72%. Any less and it's too sweet, any more and it's inedible. Like I said, I'm very particular. -Nancy Meyers

It's like this: The time between having an idea and its public launch is measured in days not months, weeks not years. -Tim Bray

Together with a team of financial and legal experts I have spent months exploring all possible alternatives to bankruptcy but to no avail. -Shane Filan

I started NetSuite. NetSuite was my idea. I called up Evan Goldberg and said, 'We're going to do ERP on the Internet, software-as-a-service.' Six months later Marc Benioff, finding out what NetSuite was doing, and kind of copied it. -Larry Ellison

For the last several years and culminating in six months in orbit next year, I've been training for my third space flight. This one is almost in a category completely different than the previous two, specifically to live in on the space station for six months, to command a space ship and to fly a new rocket ship. -Chris Hadfield

And then finally, I'm the commander, so I am fundamentally responsible for the lives of the other people on board and the health and longevity of the space station. I need to bring six people back happy, healthy and feeling like they've had the best six months of their life. -Chris Hadfield

You win the Oscar, you get to go into just about anybody's office for a month. I had a lot of meetings. -Chris Wedge

Last month, the House of Representatives passed the Veterans Opportunity to Work Act, which would provide training and assistance to unemployed veterans, and break down bureaucratic barriers preventing them from finding work. It's smart legislation that members of both parties support, and I'm pleased the Senate passed it. -Joe Heck

For months I've been working on creating techniques to reproduce Swarovski crystals in sugar using the real stones to guide me. -Ron Ben-Israel

I have run two Olympic 'A' standard times over the past 12 months and with the time I ran at the African Championships last week I know my speed and fitness are constantly improving so that I will peak in time for the Olympics. -Oscar Pistorius

Rio in four years; I've got more inspiration in the last two, three weeks. I'm sure I'm going to get more in the Paralympics in the next coming weeks, so by the end of this season, I'm going to take a month off, and then the next four years is going to be good. -Oscar Pistorius

If I step on a scale, I won't eat for five months. -Serena Williams

I had a serious childhood illness – sort of like spinal meningitis – that led to a three-month hospitalization. Afterward, I couldn't be insured because of a pre-existing condition. -Tammy Baldwin

I had had some months of depression. Not serious enough to keep me from work. So, I guess you'd call that a mild depression. -Jane Pauley

I just didn't want to get bored playing a character, and that's kind of the benefit of doing films; you've lived with a character for four or five months and that's it, and you walk away from that character and you feel like you told a story. -Jeffrey Dean Morgan

In '98, I locked myself in my house, went out of my mind and wrote 25 songs. I rarely bathed during that period of writing, I sent out for food, I didn't really venture out of my house in three or four months. It was a hell of an experience. -Jerry Cantrell

From the time I was 3, I wanted to be a major-league player. To accomplish that at 35, get my name on my jersey, be in the clubhouse with major-league players, see my family for the first time in three months, be in my home state and pitch the day I got called up, was incredible. -Jim Morris

I never liked the bar scene. I tried to like it. I would give it a try every three or four months. I'd think, tonight I'm going out. But I never met anybody in that circumstance. -Joan Allen

We just decided to pick the date 'The Matrix' opened in most of the world. At the end of the day, it worked out really great because the world seems to have got to a place where I think the movie is even more relevant now than it was several months ago. -Joel Silver

It was pure guesswork on my part back in 1979 as to whether I would have the stamina to write, pencil, ink, letter, tone, and fill the back of a monthly comic book for 26 years. -Dave Sim

Last four months were great for me, was probably one of the best four months of my career, playing unbelievable in the clay court season. -Rafael Nadal

You should see what our Founding Fathers used to say to each other and in the early part of our nation. But what they were able to do, especially in Philadelphia in 1787, four months, they argued about what a House should be, what a Senate should be, the power of the president, the Congress, the Supreme Court. And they had to deal with slavery. -Colin Powell

We have seven months before the election. Our top priority as fiscal conservatives is to make sure President Obama retires. -Ron Johnson

You're perceived as being a success if you find a job in some big city and work with hundreds of other people and draw a paycheck every month. -Jerry Moran

I try not to tune in to politics until it's two or three months before the election. Till then, it's like watching preseason football. -Trey Parker

Since I was 8 months old, till I was 12, I did commercials and ads and cute little stuff for kids. Then I had braces on my teeth. They took them off when I was 16, and then I started modeling more seriously and doing more fashion. -Bar Refaeli

As President Obama clearly said just a few months ago, China must play by the international rules, the international trading system from which they've benefited so much. -Gary Locke

I just want to tell you what it's like not to have Planned Parenthood… you have to give your kids Ramen noodles at the end of the month to fill up their little bellies so they won't cry. You have to give them mayonnaise sandwiches. They get very few fruits and vegetables because they're expensive. -Gwen Moore

Before I had kids I'd go out on the road for months and months at a time, but now I don't think I'd want to do that anymore, because I'd miss too much time at home, so it's just a matter of monitoring how much work that I do and how much time I'm on the road. -Harry Connick, Jr.

We have now under President Obama's leadership had 29 months in a row of private sector job growth. That stretch of positive private sector job growth hasn't happened since 2005. We still have a long way to go, but we are moving in the right direction. -Martin O'Malley

The Supreme Court told me that I should have filed a complaint within six months of the company's first decision to pay me less even though I didn't know about it for nearly two decades. -Lilly Ledbetter

The person who takes the oath of office in the next four months will shape not just the next four years, but the next forty years of our nation. In these next four years, we need proven leadership, proven judgment and proven values. America needs four more years of President Barack Obama. -Rahm Emanuel

Before Barack Obama took office, it looked like that pride could have vanished forever, but today, from the staggering depths of the Great Recession, the nation has had 29 straight months of job growth. Workers across my state and across the country are getting back the dignity of a good job and a good salary. -Ted Strickland

In the past we couldn't talk to non-union workers. Now we can at least talk to non-union workers so we'll be mobilizing them and educating them not for just six or eight months before an election, but we'll be doing it year-round. -Richard Trumka

To this day, my haircut is the number two clippers, which I apply to myself every month. -Henry Rollins

When I started my last business, I didn't receive a paycheck for 13 months. The average person can't handle that pressure. -Robert Kiyosaki

I was a soldier in WWII. The last couple of months of the war I was actually in combat. -Mel Brooks

I say Democrats should not be afraid to talk about the morality of life, of caring for children who are born. It seems the Republican obsession with being pro-life lasts about nine months. After that, it's each baby for herself. -Jennifer Granholm

I tried Botox one time and was permanently surprised for a couple of months. It was not a cute look for me. My feeling is, I have three children who should know what emotion I'm feeling at the exact moment I'm feeling it… that is critical. -Julia Roberts

Questioning my spiritual life has always been germane to what I was writing. Always. It's because I'm not quite an atheist and it worries me. There's that little bit that holds on: 'Well, I'm almost an atheist. Give me a couple of months.' -David Bowie

Every comedian dreams of hosting 'The Tonight Show' and, for seven months, I got to. I did it my way, with people I love, and I do not regret a second. -Conan O'Brien

If you're a cartoon character or most TV characters, sure, you'll fight, because the punches are juicy-sounding and they don't leave marks. But in real life, if somebody punches you in the eye, it doesn't make any noise and your eye is swollen for, like, six months. It's a nightmare to get punched in the eye. -Louis C. K.

I am still in love with couture because it is just two months from drawing pad to runway so everything on the catwalk is hot from the oven. -Christian Lacroix

I literally coded Facebook in my dorm room and launched it from my dorm room. I rented a server for $85 a month, and I funded it by putting an ad on the side, and we've funded ever since by putting ads on the side. -Mark Zuckerberg

The last six months of the Bush administration lost four million jobs and the first six months of the Obama administration lost another four million before any initiatives of the president could take action. -Valerie Jarrett

My daughter is, of course, perfect. Everyone's child is, but mine really is perfect. But I could not have raised her without my parents. From the time she was seven months until now, I have been a single parent. -Valerie Jarrett

Just a few months ago in the Republican primary Mitt Romney said to his opponents, who he was crushing at the time, stop whining. And I think that's a good message for the Romney campaign. Instead of whining about what the Obama campaign is saying, why don't you just put the facts out there and let people decide rather than trying to hide them. -Stephanie Cutter

I mean some doctor told me I had six months to live and I went to their funeral. -Keith Richards

My thinking was taught to tribes in South Africa like the Zulus and Xhosas. At the time there were about 210 fights breaking out among them every month, but after they listened to my lessons, this fell to just four. -Edward de Bono

No animal on the face of the earth could conceive of taxation. You and I work roughly six months a year to pay our local, state and federal taxes. If nothing else, this should convince you that animals are smarter than people. -Rita Mae Brown

I make good money: One speech nets me more than what most people make in six months. -Alain Robert

I'm not the No. 1 starter. I'm not the guy that's going to carry the staff for four months out of the season, but I can contribute in a lot of ways. And to me I'm very proud of that. -Jamie Moyer

I pace myself by taking a week-long vacation every four months. -Marissa Mayer

I know it sounds absurd, but 11 months old, I did my first commercial. -Hayden Panettiere

Now that I have a 16-month-old son, my weekend ritual has changed – but it's better than ever. We get up early and go for a walk on one of the hiking trails near my home in Los Angeles, then meet up with friends at a diner. There's nothing better than sipping coffee, eating scrambled eggs, and taking three hours to do it. -Connie Britton

I wasn't like those girls who give birth and are back on the runway. It took me probably six months to gain 45 pounds and I would say it took me double that time to lose it. -Padma Lakshmi

If we were to wipe out insects alone on this planet, the rest of life and humanity with it would mostly disappear from the land. Within a few months. -E. O. Wilson

I was at Ford for 32 years. I went to Chrysler in 1978, four or five months after I got canned by Henry Ford. -Lee Iacocca

In theater, you've got to be aware of your whole body because it involves stamina. It involves two-and-a-half hours and a sustained release of energy, maybe for six months. -Alan Rickman

Once a month the sky falls on my head, I come to and I see another movie I want to make. -Steven Spielberg

I only tour in short bursts, I'm only ever away from my family and three daughters for a month or two. -Harry Connick, Jr.

Nobody is on the Paralympic Team until three months before those games. -Heather Mills

I've been round Japan, Hong Kong, Korea, and China in the last few months and the message that I've been taking is that New Zealand is building an up market dynamic into a connected economy. And that we are not the old-fashioned, ship mutton kind of product the people associate their export in work. -Helen Clark

I can't speak for all women, but I do think that… I mean, me and my girlfriends, we definitely… we're in crisis on a continuous basis…or at least monthly, for sure, I don't know. -Helen Slater

I've never not appeared in front of a live audience for any longer period than a month or two. -William Shatner

In 1980, when I graduated from high school, my goal was to be on 'The Tonight Show' with Johnny Carson at least once before our ten-year class reunion. Our class reunion was in June of 1990, and I was on 'The Tonight Show' in April 1990, so I made it by a few months. -Jeff Dunham

Brother Colm is one of the best coaches who's ever been here in Kenya. He's been, of course, my coach since I started running. He saw me in high school when I was still doing 400, and 200 meters. He decided for me to join his club and we'd been training for one month. That is when he saw me and he thought I could do a good 800. -David Rudisha

Let's just say I decided that while my son is young I don't want to do projects that would take me away for months. -Karen Allen

I have the ability to see results six months later and there's no better feeling. We impact on thousands of people in the world. And in New York, which is the roughest, when people appreciate what we're doing, it puts the Simoniz back on the apple. -Curtis Sliwa

I love fashion. I love couture. I'm going to erect a shelf in my bedroom with an art light to be the spot for the shoes of the month. -Sandra Bullock

I'm not a prophet, but I always thought it was natural for dictatorships to fall. I remember in 1989, two months before the fall of the Berlin Wall, had you said it was going to happen no one would have believed you. The system seemed powerful and unbreakable. Suddenly overnight it blew away like dust. -Salman Rushdie

I had Botox and I hated it. For four long months, I looked like a different person. -Stevie Nicks

I come from a family of pacifists, so it's not like I was going to join the war. Sweden is not like the States or England where you might get sent to Afghanistan next month. -Bill Skarsgard

I had to live and breathe Margaret Thatcher for a few months. I totally engulfed myself in her life. I read her autobiography and a biography, 'The Grocer's Daughter.' -Alexandra Roach

Americans are terrified because so many of them have been laid off in recent years and months and they fear that they may be next. Even if they have not been laid off or have not known anyone laid off, they definitely know someone who has lost his home. -Ben Stein

We did a two month tour with Taj Mahal that was really healing and cathartic and a good distraction after my brother passed away. Then I knew I wanted to take a year off, and it was really nice to have that chance to fall apart. -Bonnie Raitt

If you go away on location for three months and your wife stays at home, you've made a whole new load of friends and she's made a whole new load of friends and you get home and you're kind of strangers. -Michael Caine

Celebrity is absolutely preposterous. Entertainment seems to be inflating. It used to be the punctuation to your life, a film or a novel or a play, a way of celebrating a good week or month. Now it feels as if it's all punctuation. -Hugh Laurie

I'm always being accused of being a Hollywood Republican, but I'm not! I have just as many Democratic ideas as Republican ones. If they could build three fewer bombs every month and give the money to foster care, that would be great. -Bruce Willis

I used to buy vinyl. Today, if you do put out a record on a label, traditionally, most people are going to hear it via a leak that happens two weeks – if not two months – before it comes out. There's no real way around that. -Trent Reznor

If the American people in a matter of months can love the people of Kuwait, whom they have not seen, they can love the people of our nation's capital just as well. -Jesse Jackson

Even in between takes, you emerge yourself. So you don't have a life for six months. -Lea Seydoux

I was born two months early, and everyone had given up on me. But my mother insisted on my life. -Sidney Poitier

To the hard-working people who set a little bit aside each month, to provide for their children, or to fund their own retirement, I say: you should be rewarded not punished. -William Hague

I had never been to a fashion show before going to the Burberry show last month. It was an extraordinary spectacle. I was incredibly green and had no idea what an undertaking it is. I also have a new respect for models because they are so close to the front row and must be so self-conscious. -Eddie Redmayne

What is happening in the Sahel for the past several months is that terrorists have structured themselves, have installed themselves. It's not simply a menace for west Africa. -Francois Hollande

I love dressing up, but I do find the red carpet thing quite stressful. When I went to Venice Film Festival last month to promote 'Wuthering Heights,' I told my boyfriend beforehand 'I will be a nightmare, I will cry, I will be nervous.' Actually once I was there, it was fine. -Kaya Scodelario

At the moment we're trying to keep what we've learnt. Because we learnt a terrific amount with 'Deep Purple In Rock,' it took six months to make that album: we think it paid off, really. I can honestly say that it's the first album we've been 100 percent satisfied with; it gave us a hell of a lot of confidence. -Jon Lord

I go back to South Africa at least once a year, sometimes twice, and usually for a month. And probably, I'm guessing, I'll spend more time back there as I get older. -Dave Matthews

That's the most important thing to me – that if I'm gonna spend however long it takes to make a movie, give up 14 hours a day for however many weeks or months, then it's very important for me to know that I'm working with people who I respect and enjoy and that we're going for something together. -Brad Pitt

I go home and stay there. I wash and scrub up each day, and that's it. One month I actually grew a moustache, just so I could say that I'd done something. -Bill Murray

Every few months I'll pop into a comedy club or go to Vegas. -Kevin James

Right before I got 'Sons of Anarchy,' I actually quit acting for 18 months and didn't read a single script, and I wrote a film. I felt like I needed to do something that I had control over, as an artist, and also just do something where I felt like I had some control over my life, as just a human, out in the world. -Charlie Hunnam

There's a boom in genealogy now. With ancestry.com and other sites digitizing so many of the records, you can now find things in a few minutes that used to take months. -Henry Louis Gates

My all-time low is 62 at Bel-Air, but it was in match play, and I had two putts given to me from four feet. I'm playing only about once or twice a month. Full-time job. Full-time father. Full-time blonde. -Jack Wagner

Consider a 15- or 20-year fixed-rate mortgage instead of a 30-year, if you can afford the monthly payments – they may not be as high as you think. -Suze Orman

Make it a priority to have at least eight months of living costs set aside in a federally insured bank or credit union account. -Suze Orman

Your goal should be to pay off your credit card bills in full at the end of each month and set aside money toward your emergency savings. -Suze Orman

The way to build your savings is by spending less each month. -Suze Orman

Those carrying a credit card balance should scale back to making the minimum payment each month so they have more money to put into savings. -Suze Orman

If you are worried about job security and do not have an adequate emergency fund (ideally eight months' worth of living expenses stashed away in a federally insured bank or credit union), you need to focus more on saving money than paying down the balance on your credit cards. -Suze Orman

I love, love, love that you want to use your debit card. But to keep your credit score solid, you still need to keep a few credit cards and use them at least once every few months. -Suze Orman

If you're saving for the long run, it's actually a good thing when the market is down because the more shares you have, the more you can potentially make when markets rise. And over time – decades, not months – the markets rise more than they fall. -Suze Orman

Find $50 a month for savings. No excuses! -Suze Orman

I get so frustrated when people tell me it's unrealistic to create an eight-month emergency savings fund, or have money saved for a home down payment, or pay off their $5,000 credit card balance. -Suze Orman

Start-ups like UniversityNow, a network of low-cost, online colleges, allows students to work at their own pace and pay a few hundred dollars a month for a degree. -Dan Rather

I think it's cooler when girls have favorite pieces of clothing rather than an entirely new wardrobe every few months. -Cameron Russell

I don't think I could ever really be with a woman because that's a lot of… Yeah, there's a lot of estrogen and I'm a lot to deal with when it's that time of the month, so I can't imagine it times two. -Christina Aguilera

I went to my dad when I was 17 and said, 'I want to be a country music star.' Which every dad loves to hear. And he said, 'I want you to go to college.' So we had a discussion. And I'm pretty stubborn. I'm a lot like him. And he said, 'If you go to college and graduate, I'll pay your first six months of rent in Nashville.' So he bribed me. -Eric Church

Once I was gone for a month and I was just miserable, so I flew back from Florida for two hours just to be home and see my cats. -Paula Poundstone

I've gotten very good at detaching whenever I have to go away for three months, which I realize is hard on friends and kind of selfish. -Ashley Greene

Right now I'm in 'Twilight' and I go around to signings and there are people screaming and crying, and it's so surreal. I know that when this is over in a month or two and whenever 'Twilight's no longer relevant, that doesn't live on for me. It's because of this. It's not very often that this happens for people. -Nikki Reed

That was, in writing the 'Twilight' script I had about five weeks to write that. I'd taken about a month to write the outline and then it was slam into a script and write it down fast because the writer's strike was looming. -Melissa Rosenberg

I had the easiest publishing experience in the entire world. I sent out fifteen courier letters to agents, got five no replies, nine rejections and one I want to see it. A month later I had an agent. Another month later I had a three book deal with Little Brown. -Stephenie Meyer

I have read on a Kindle. But the Kindle we had only worked for about eight months then it stopped working. You don't have to get books repaired. -Joyce Carol Oates

We're probably going to see some post-2014 military presence – some U.S. presence and a NATO presence – and while we've got much work to do in the next 29 months, we'll have additional time later for the continued professionalization of the Afghan security forces. -John R. Allen

The first show I ever did, singing and dancing, was 'Beauty and the Beast.' I was playing Gaston. Gaston has red tights, knee high boots, and it's very physical. I had headaches every day for two months. -Hugh Jackman

I love living in London but I would like to buy a place in Dubai and spend a few months of the year out there. -Kevin Pietersen

I think I had about a month off when I broke my rib in Australia, which was magnificent. -Kevin Pietersen

The only way to get a three to four-month break would be to tear a tendon or a hamstring or something like that. -Kevin Pietersen

I wanted to do something creatively, having been a beached whale for many months and nursing my daughter. -Tori Amos

Individually the poor are not too tempting to thieves, for obvious reasons. Mug a banker and you might score a wallet containing a month's rent. Mug a janitor and you will be lucky to get away with bus fare to flee the crime scene. -Barbara Ehrenreich

It is true that as you have children, there are a good many months when you don't want to be working full-time. I agree that that's an issue. -Sandra Day O'Connor

Sometimes you don't prepare much. I mean, when I did 'Lonesome Dove' way back I rode horses day and night for like three or four months, and that got me ready for that. -Robert Duvall

I'm glowing in the dark with my studio tan. I've been in a cave of music for months and months and months. -Phil Anselmo

What if Barack Obama established a Presidential Advisory Committee that would meet once every couple of months, bringing together the former presidents for a conference in order to seek their collective wisdom? There is a wealth of experience in former presidents that generally goes untapped. -Tony Campolo

Now here's what I'm saying: I've always believed that every other month we hear about compromisation of bank records, I think that's the CIA and the FBI. Now let me tell you why I'm saying this. I don't believe no insignificant pip-squeak is going to be able to pull this off month after month and we can't find out what's going on. -Dick Gregory

I buy about $1,500 worth of papers every month. Not that I trust them. I'm looking for the crack in the fabric. -Dick Gregory

When your co-stars are 9-month-old babies, you fall in love. You start thinking, When am I going to have my own? -Vin Diesel

I left the White House in 2007. You know, I knew when I went there that it would be for a limited period of time. I was grateful that the average tenure of a white house senior aide is 18 to 20 months. I was there for nearly seven years. -Karl Rove

Tiny steps will get you to your goal months and months sooner. A little is better than a lot. -Martha Beck

When you lock a movie's release date and then move it two months, it's just not good. It's good for everything but the cast, crew, and people who are creatively trying to make a film. -Rob Zombie

My first album was completed in three months. -Adam Lambert

It usually takes me a year to do a book. A year or eighteen months. -Doris Lessing

Often when I finish a film I'll have that feeling inside me: 'I never want to do this ever again. I don't want to pretend anymore. I want to be myself and do that.' And then, thank God, that feeling goes away after a month or so and I'm raring to go again. -Jeff Bridges

When you live in a condo complex with people next door, I don't know how you can be dead for four months without anybody noticing you not coming and going. -Laura Schlessinger

If I was a woman, I would be dressed in the same thing for a month and just change my hat and gloves. Maybe my shoes too; yes, I see what you mean but, really, it's jewels that change an outfit. -Manolo Blahnik

I work six months and get three or four with the family. -Kyle Chandler

You know, I have a kid on my own, and I know how busy it is, the first weeks and the first month. -Alessandra Ambrosio

Writers always say, 'I always knew I wanted to be a writer; when I was a three-month-old foetus a pen formed in my hand and I began to scratch my first story on the inside of my mother's womb.' I started later, in my early twenties. -Harlan Coben

That $27,000 that a young player will now get just for making the main draw at the Australian Open is huge. It can set them up for a couple of months which at that level you really do need that kind of help. It sounds like a lot of money, but when you're travelling the world trying to make it as a tennis player, it doesn't last long. -Samantha Stosur
