It is common for those that are farthest from God, to boast themselves most of their being near to the Church. -Matthew Henry

Christ beside me, Christ before me, Christ behind me, Christ within me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me. -Saint Patrick

It was really really neat to make the movie because there were mentally challenged actors in the movie. So that was really really cool to work with them and they were always really happy, and they made everybody really happy on the set too. -Dakota Fanning

I like everything perfect. Everything has to be neat. My sister is 5, and she's more messy than I am. I make my bed every morning, everything's perfect. My shoes are all arranged. It's sad. I'm a little like Ray, a little bit. -Dakota Fanning

I told the brethren that the Book of Mormon was the most correct of any book on earth, and the keystone of our religion, and a man would get nearer to God by abiding by its precepts, than by any other book. -Joseph Smith, Jr.

There is a Canadian culture that is in some ways unique to Canada, but I don't think Canadian culture coincides neatly with borders. -Stephen Harper

As soon as the fear approaches near, attack and destroy it. -Chanakya

The pursuit of pretty formulas and neat theorems can no doubt quickly degenerate into a silly vice, but so can the quest for austere generalities which are so very general indeed that they are incapable of application to any particular. -E. T. Bell

After an existence of nearly 20 years of almost innocuous desuetude, these laws are brought forth. -Grover Cleveland

I love painting and music, of course. I don't know nearly as much about them as I know about poetry. I've certainly been influenced by fiction. I was overwhelmed by War and Peace when I read it, and I didn't read it until I was in my late 20s. -Kenneth Koch

We're not going to make Evolution or any of our other products depend on Mono anytime in the near future. -Nat Friedman

To the solemn graves, near a lonely cemetery, my heart like a muffled drum is beating funeral marches. -Charles Baudelaire

The near stillness recalls what is forgotten, extinct angels. -Georg Trakl

There is an idea abroad among moral people that they should make their neighbors good. One person I have to make good: Myself. But my duty to my neighbor is much more nearly expressed by saying that I have to make him happy if I may. -Robert Louis Stevenson

We are probably nearing the limit of all we can know about astronomy. -Simon Newcomb

It must be remembered that the sea is a great breeder of friendship. Two men who have known each other for twenty years find that twenty days at sea bring them nearer than ever they were before, or else estrange them. -Gilbert Parker

It's a journalist's job to be a witness to history. We're not there to worry about ourselves. We're there to try and get as near as we can, in an imperfect world, to the truth and get the truth out. -Robert Fisk

We do not get to this age to be written off. Older people can act as a support system, which is what happens more in Mediterranean countries. People become much wiser as they get older and we should value that. -Susan Hampshire

There's not a wind but whispers of thy name; And not a flow'r that grows beneath the moon, But in its hues and fragrance tells a tale Of thee, my love. -Bryan Procter

We all have an edge. We all are floating our psyche on top with a great ocean underneath. -Brad Dourif

I knew that my niece was working nearby with some bank, so my wife rang up the mother and the mother called back to say that shes just called up to say she was alright. -Lee Kuan Yew

Our duty is to encourage every one in his struggle to live up to his own highest idea, and strive at the same time to make the ideal as near as possible to the Truth. -Swami Vivekananda

I'm not that fashion-conscious. A lot of times, when women are appearing to be so perfect, it's because they're a mess underneath. -Meg Tilly

When we're young we have a very clear vision of how life is supposed to be, and it all seems very neatly packaged. -Andrew Shue

Well, I guess my unease with that is… I'm always a little uneasy with that phrase – smooth jazz, as opposed to what? -David Sanborn

It seems to be that southern Europeans are just more intimate socially, whereas I like a lot of personal space – like, a mile from the nearest person is fine for me. -Peter Steele

Whether something is old-fashioned or not doesn't resolve the question of whether it's true or not. I can see the temptation of simply thinking, 'Well, there's a cultural mainstream which flows neatly in one direction. You just align with it'. And that really won't do. -Rowan Williams

Jigsaw Lady is the working title of a science fiction novel I've had in my head for darn near 15 years. I think I'll start work on it next year (in all my spare time) but I'd like to get it finished some day. -Raymond E. Feist

Then you'd have found me pinned beneath a large metal pipe. -Vic Morrow

We are very near the final climactic events that end with the Second Coming of Christ. -Hal Lindsey

When the Jewish people, after nearly 2,000 years of exile, under relentless persecution, became a nation again on 14 May 1948 the 'fig tree' put forth its first leaves. Jesus said that this would indicate that He was 'at the door,' ready to return. -Hal Lindsey

I lived in small town out in the desert and my friend used to steal his mom's car in the middle of the night. He'd drive over to my house, I'd sneak out and we'd go out to the desert and just burn things down. -Mark Hoppus

I believe that every human soul is teaching something to someone nearly every minute here in mortality. -M. Russell Ballard

Can't do it, simply cause underneath 'em is too ugly. -Billy Gibbons

I hesitated, too, because for better or worse, I have been one of the principal architects of New Labour and I have worked closely with Tony Blair and the team for nearly 20 years. -Peter Mandelson

Well, the security business has been growing. I think security is one of those areas where it's to some degree not linear but maybe exponential growth. -Sanjay Kumar

Yet Aristotle's excellence of substance, so far from being associated with the grand style, is associated with something that at times comes perilously near jargon. -Irving Babbitt

Manufacturers account for nearly 60 percent of all industrial research and development. -John Engler

I believe that the end of things man-made cannot be very far away – must be near at hand. -John Harvey Kellogg

My school is attended by near three hundred scholars. -Joseph Lancaster

Rations were scarcely issued, and the men about preparing supper, when rumors that the enemy had been encountered that day near Gettysburg absorbed every other interest, and very soon orders came to march forthwith to Gettysburg. -Joshua Chamberlain

I think Janeane Garofalo is incredibly funny, and I love Dennis Miller. -Kristen Johnston

I don't know what I have said. I have answered so many questions and I am so confused I don't know one thing from another. I am telling you just as nearly as I know. -Lizzie Andrew Borden

I am a very linear thinker, so I write beginning to end. I write hundreds of pages per book that never make it into print. -Laurell K. Hamilton

Hoboken is a neat place. -Daniel Pinkwater

First there was the New Hampshire primary, and we had nearly a year leading up to it. And now, look! Three primaries in one weekend! How many of these things are they going to have? -Ed Helms

It is so cold out there, my head nearly fell off. -Mark McKinney

I have always been making art from an early age but for nearly forty years did computer programming to earn a living. I bought a house and put my wife and three children through college. Now that diversion is over so I can finally paint full time. -Mike Thompson

Rounding to the nearest cent is sufficiently accurate for practical purposes. -Alexander John Ellis

The intercourse between the Mediterranean and the North or between the Atlantic and Central Europe was never purely economic or political; it also meant the exchange of knowledge and ideas and the influence of social institutions and artistic and literary forms. -Christopher Dawson

You can set up whatever negotiations or structure you want, but until the Palestinians are willing to accept the fact, as the majority of Israelis do, that there should be two states between the Jordan and the Mediterranean, we won't have peace. -Chuck Schumer

I have two Iceland horses, a very hairy dog called Looney, and a guinea pig. -Cornelia Funke

It is near thirty years since He made it sure; and since that time, though there has fallen out much sin, yet I was never out of an assurance of mine interest, nor long out of sight of His presence. -Donald Cargill

Now I am near to the getting of my crown, which shall be sure; for I bless the Lord, and desire all of you to bless Him that He hath brought me here, and makes me triumph over devils, and men, and sin: they shall wound me no more. -Donald Cargill

One lady wrote me and told me how she wants to see me get beat up and near death and that kind of stuff. -George Eads

As is the case with many Middle Eastern nations, women are nowhere near equal to men when it comes to basic freedoms and rights that we take for granted every day. -Ginny Brown-Waite

After the last two years of springtime gas price spikes, nearly everyone in Southeast Wisconsin understands that something is wrong with our gasoline regulation and supply system. -Jim Sensenbrenner

That death was near, I suppose I believed, but I saw it only as a rest after the day's work. -Knute Nelson

Human history is highly nonlinear and unpredictable. -Michael Shermer

Only weeks after Oslo began, when nearly all the world and most of Israel was drunk with the idea of peace, I argued that a Palestinian society not constrained by democratic norms would be a fear society that would pose a grave threat to Israel. -Natan Sharansky

When, in the third book, we do learn the identity of the Blue Rose murderer, the information comes in a muted, nearly off-hand manner, and the man has died long before. -Peter Straub

Yet, nearly 6 decades after the Holocaust concluded, Anti-Semitism still exists as the scourge of the world. -Eliot Engel

Linux evolved in a completely different way. From nearly the beginning, it was rather casually hacked on by huge numbers of volunteers coordinating only through the Internet. -Eric S. Raymond

It may be, however, that I am too much wedded to my own views in the matter, and as I have spent nearly eight years of the hardest work of my life in this department, I respectfully request that I may now be relieved from its command. -George Crook

I'd like to find great roles close to home and work on great projects while staying near my family. My family's the most important thing to me right now. -Harry Hamlin

I don't think radio is selling records like they used to. They'd hawk the song and hawk the artist and you'd get so excited, you'd stop your car and go into the nearest record store. -Herb Alpert

We are going to see a tremendous number of health professionals retire over the next 8-10 years. We are not doing nearly enough to deal with this problem. -Dave Obey

In this play we're dealing with relative truths – who's lying, who's telling the truth. But underneath that, Ed and I have hit this deeper level of intimacy between old friends that comes out in the play. -Fred Ward

A deliberate choice on my part was for the player to continue to find new possibilities in the early Attic rooms far into the game. I think this builds atmosphere, though it means there's no neat division of the prologue from the middle game. -Graham Nelson

Because I actually find the next take after they've controlled it a little bit and repressed the laughter is actually a really interesting take, because that's still going on underneath the surface. That struggle to maintain composure becomes part of the joy of the scene. -Jay Roach

Repaying the debt of these ultimate sacrifices seems nearly impossible but we must try. -Michael N. Castle

We've had some really good guest stars. But I have to go with Alec Baldwin as my favorite. He is so neat and such a movie star. He's handsome and quirky. I was in heaven the week he was on the set. -Nikki Cox

If it is widely assumed that the new President cannot move forward simply because of a narrow victory, there can easily develop a sense of unease and uncertainty, adversely affecting every sector of American society, our economy and the perception of other nations. -Richard V. Allen

As with all my work, whether it's a leaf on a rock or ice on a rock, I'm trying to get beneath the surface appearance of things. Working the surface of a stone is an attempt to understand the internal energy of the stone. -Andy Goldsworthy

Since the invention of steamships distant countries have become like those that are near at hand. -Townsend Harris

If Japan had been near to either England or France, war would have broken out long ago. -Townsend Harris

I was born in Taunton, Massachusetts on June 1, 1917, but I actually grew up in nearby New Bedford. -William Standish Knowles

The U.S. should support the historic Gaza withdrawal as a first step toward a final settlement: a permanent Palestinian state in Gaza and nearly all of the West Bank. -Lee H. Hamilton

There are nearly 200 countries and a population of over 6 billion in today's world. International affairs should be addressed by all countries through consultations rather than monopolised by a few powers. -Li Peng

Therefore, when I considered this carefully, the contempt which I had to fear because of the novelty and apparent absurdity of my view, nearly induced me to abandon utterly the work I had begun. -Nicolaus Copernicus

But, apart from that, there was very little on underneath the suit. -Peter Mayhew

What is special about VOIP is that it's just another thing you can do on the Internet, whereas it is the only thing – or nearly the only thing with the exception of the dial-up modem and fax – that you can do on the public switched telephone network. -Vint Cerf

Cosmoe is nearing the stage where I would feel comfortable doing a preliminary release aimed at developers. -Bill Hayden

What's near and dear to my heart is cooperative conservation. -Gale Norton

I think right now in the world we're feeling like there's no solid ground beneath our feet, you know? -Kelly Lynch

I am in Boston right now, in fact, to do work at the New England Historical Genealogical Library, where I'm trying to finish up tracing my lineage back to the seventeenth century. -Rick Moody

It was the nearest to a casualty on the Spray in her whole course, so far as I know. The young man having come on board with compliments made the mishap most embarrassing. -Joshua Slocum

On this day there was soon wind enough and to spare. The same might have been said of the sea. The Spray was in the midst of the turbulent Gulf Stream itself. She was jumping like a porpoise over the uneasy waves. -Joshua Slocum

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

You know, one of the things I like about this world, or at least I like about the way we're presenting this world, is these issues are terribly complicated – not nearly as black and white as we're led to believe. -Aaron Sorkin

If the area were on or near the U.S. continental shelf, such data could well provide an enemy with strategically invaluable insights into undersea access routes that could be used to attack some of the millions of Americans who live on or near our coasts. -Frank Gaffney

I work on OpenBSD fulltime, as the project leader. I set some directions, increase communication between the developers, and try to be involved in nearly every aspect of the base system. -Theo de Raadt

Why is it not just as likely that there were as many small general nearly at first as now, and as great a disproportion in the number of their species? -Asa Gray

Have we so soon forgotten those four years of terrible carnage, the greatest war of all time; forgotten the millions of men who gave their lives, who made the supreme sacrifice and who today, beneath the soil of France and Belgium, sleep the eternal sleep? -Frank B. Kellogg

To be anywhere near an enormous ocean liner when you are just like a fish in the water is frightening. -John C. Hawkes

I made my first Australian senior team when I was 16, first Olympics when I was 19, and I retired. I'm 32, I retired four years ago, so a good third of my life or nearly a third of my life has been all about running. -Cathy Freeman

I always wanted a guitar. I always wanted to be a cowboy singer because I also listened to Hank Williams, and he would always sing these neat romantic songs. -Dick Dale

We're going to be focusing our science on things that will take us farther and longer into space. For many of those experiments, the crew members are human guinea pigs, which is fine; that's part of my job. I don't mind being a human guinea pig. -John L. Phillips

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

Reactive arthritis is something I've been dealing with for nearly a year. -Daniel Johns

Beneath all of these addictions is this disease, this control disease which is the mark of our society. -Keith Miller

We're kind of wishing some parents would come back. And of course we're uneasy about the fact that we wish they'd come back – I mean, what's wrong with us? -David Foster Wallace

As our cities have developed, they've built sometimes small villages or communities that were in place. And we've taken for granted all of that child care, the neighbourliness, the help that you get from people nearby. -Susan Oliver

I play a scientist in a futuristic world in which 99% of the men have been wiped out. As a result, the women are nearly all homosexuals and the children are cloned. -Julie Bowen

Yet when one suspects that a man knows something about life that one hasn't heard before one is uneasy until one has found out what he has to say. -Frederick Pollock

There is hard hitting, but the hitting is not nearly as hard as it used to be. -Jim Otto

I was near sighted. I was born myopic, and I got glasses, right after that. -Kitty Carlisle

It seems to me that humour is everybody's way of keeping sane and standing off from the situations so that they can see it intellectually, as well as emotionally, and I don't know whether you've noticed, but if somebody tells a joke, it's nearly always a mini fantasy. -Diana Wynne Jones

I think that in the near term the only threat to demand is some form of recession here in the United States. -Andrew Gould

The Clinton tax increase – which was an increase in taxes primarily on upper-income people – not only made the tax code more nearly progressive, it preceded one of the most productive economic periods in American life. -Barney Frank

Somehow I got to be one of five or six actors that the directors would use as guinea pigs at this directing colloquium, where people pay to listen to and watch the directors direct. -Beth Henley

You remember that my great vision came to me when I was only nine years old, and you have seen that I was not much good for anything until after I had performed the horse dance near the mouth of the Tongue River during my eighteenth summer. -Black Elk

Specifically, I am concerned about the long-term condition of Social Security. I am committed to ensuring that current beneficiaries and those nearing retirement face no reduction in benefits, while preserving this vital program for future generations. -Cliff Stearns

We are the biggest donor to the United Nations, contributing 22 percent of the regular operating budget and nearly 27 percent of the peacekeeping budget. -Cliff Stearns

Nobody wants to open a business near a Superfund site and risk being sued. -Fred Thompson

I prefer, in a word, the republican system, because it comes up more nearly to God's system. -Gerrit Smith

And I think that after nearly 85 years upon this planet that I have a right after working so hard at showing the desolation and the poverty, to show something beautiful for somebody as well. -Gordon Parks

We made air attacks on the Japanese anchorage, sinking and damaging several vessels. However, the Japanese were alerted to the fact that American carriers were nearby. -Jack Adams

We moved over to Silver Spring, actually near University Park. -Jim Fowler

With nearly all students leaving public high school having taken some vocational education, this bill continues to provide communities with the funding necessary to give students an edge on career training. -John M. McHugh

I took anatomy classes. I went to medical libraries and talked to doctors and nutritionists. I did the whole thing before using myself as a human guinea pig. -Marilu Henner

Somewhere near you, somebody right now is trying to help the indigent and poor – providing food, shelter, clothing or simple kindness. -Tony Snow

You must try to match your colors as nearly as you can to those you see before you, and you must study the effects of light and shade on nature's own hues and tints. -William Merritt Chase

It was never physically dangerous except when I nearly fell off a horse, but it was physically arduous – especially when you were working late at night. -Derek Jacobi

I'm lucky. The best possible place in the world for training is Addis Ababa, so I am home all the time except when I am racing. I like to be there, near my family, my kids, also the real estate business I run with my wife. -Haile Gebrselassie

My dad served in the Air Force as ground crew for several years, and doesn't really talk about it. I know that it's there. I think my main thing about direct or indirect experiences as near to home as it were is the idea of self-sacrifice really. -Jeremy Northam

Since the September 11 attacks, nearly 400 individuals have been arrested by the Justice Department as a result of ongoing investigations into international terrorism. Of that total, over half were convicted as a result of their actions. -Jo Bonner

I remember nearly having a fit of the giggles during the reading because dear Daniel was SO respectful and serious and I was finding the whole situation funny because I was speaking to his profile. -Madeleine Stowe

I'm always uneasy with messages. I think if there is a message, it's about taking control of your life. Not becoming a victim. Be true to yourself. In essence it's about love in the drug culture. -Neil Tennant

In St. Louis, some people were hurt seriously when some fans got on top of a roof that was where other fans were underneath it, at a park somewhere, and it collapsed. -Phil Lesh

Even Catholic parishes today are not wanting for talent. But no serious singer or organist will get anywhere near the typical music program, at least if he wants to retain his self-respect. -Richard Morris

I thin many people's deviant behavior starts with dreams because dreams are so non-linear… as if there's an assumption that everything has to be linear or has to be plotted. -Robyn Hitchcock

I directed the men in our barque to approach near the savages, and hold their arms in readiness to do their duty in case they notice any movement of these people against us. -Samuel de Champlain

I lived in town until I was eight and then I moved nearer the farmland, so I had a mixture. -Stephen Sprouse

To the present writer a careful study of the facts now available seems to leave no doubt that civilization was born at the southeast corner of the Mediterranean. -James Henry Breasted

And so, little by little, I gradually divested myself of pretty nearly all of the guest conducting I used to do, because I was at the same time working in the places like the Met, where I could work in this sort of depth. -James Levine

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

It was in the year 1820, when I was nearly nine years old, that I first went to a regular school. -John Bright

The pollution they produce, market, sell, and show to billions around the world is at its core contemptuous of the country that gave them better lives than nearly 100 percent of everybody who's ever lived. And they pass that contempt along for everyone to see. -John Ratzenberger

All we need, really, is a change from a near frigid to a tropical attitude of mind. -Marjory Stoneman Douglas

I loved nearly all my teachers; but it was not till I went home to live at Oxford, in 1867, that I awoke intellectually to a hundred interests and influences that begin much earlier nowadays to affect any clever child. -Mary Augusta Ward

Just as the water of a river near its mouth, in its final form, is composed largely of many tributaries, so an idea, in its final form, is composed largely of later additions. -Willy Ley

It's so easy to manipulate an audience, but it's nearly always clear that you are being manipulated. I think even people that are not critically attuned are aware of cynical manipulation in film. -John Boorman

Linear thinking typifies a highly developed industry. It starts to get these patterns built into it somehow. I'm not sure how that happens, but certainly you take a look at dinosaurs. -Michael Nesmith

It is grievous to read the papers in most respects, I agree. More and more I skim the headlines only, for one can be sure what is carried beneath them quite automatically, if one has long been a reader of the press journalism. -Mary Ritter Beard

When I came there I found all my family gone, for the Indians had killed five people in the winter near that place, which frightened my wife and family away to Roanoke about 35 miles nearer in among the inhabitants, which I was informed of by an old man I met near the place. -Christopher Gist

Well, let's assume the world is linear. If we required a certain amount of troops per 25,000 population in the Balkans, if the world is not radically different, something of the same extent is going to be needed in Iraq. -Eric Shinseki

I don't think kids have a problem with death. It's us older ones who are nearer to it, that start being frightened. -Helena Bonham Carter

Once I completed the Cube and demonstrated it to my students, I realized it was nearly impossible to put down. -Erno Rubik

The problems of puzzles are very near the problems of life. -Erno Rubik

No, absolutely not, writing doesn't have to be like a jigsaw puzzle, it can be a very linear undertaking. -Guillermo Cabrera Infante

No, what is important is neither linearity or non-linearity, but the change, the degree of change from something that doesn't move to other events with different tempos in particular. -Karlheinz Stockhausen

The banding together by the nations of the world against Israel is the guarantee that their time of destruction is near and the final redemption of the Jew at hand. -Meir Kahane

The labs were happy that I was brave enough to attempt to program it and the $5 million computer was left entirely to my use. I was their human guinea pig. -Philip Emeagwali

Of thousands of others, nearer the centre of the explosion, there was no trace. They vanished. The theory in Hiroshima is that the atomic heat was so great that they burned instantly to ashes – except that there were no ashes. -Wilfred Burchett

So much of what we do as artists is a combination of personal experience and imagination, and how that all creeps into your work is not so linear. -Diana Krall

If I had been trying to take the job away from him in a sneaky, underhand manner, then I deserved all I got. But it was the other way around. I was trying to get him the job. -Ian St. John

Into this pour the purified juice: and put it into a pan of water come almost to a boil and continue nearly in the state of boiling until the juice is found to be the consistency of a thick syrup when cold. It is then when cold, to be corked up in a bottle for use. -James Lind

Because you don't live near a bakery doesn't mean you have to go without cheesecake. -Hedy Lamarr

Dirt makes a man look masculine. Let your hair blow in the wind, and all that. It's OK. All you have to do is look neat when you have to look neat. -Hedy Lamarr

I have a computer screen near my seat where I monitor the overall health of the vehicle and pick up any problems that might be occurring early on or once we see any kind of a malfunction or anything unusual that's happening, we can look at the data and figure out what that is. -Laurel Clark

Women do feel like they're in a box. Society, Hollywood, some men-they want to wrap women up in a neat little package. -Sherilyn Fenn

If you've ever seen the film In Which We Serve, but it was about a destroyer in the Mediterranean. -Richard Attenborough

David has asked me, a number of people have asked me and said, What performance do you like best or what's the best film you've made and so on and I don't really have any hesitation that the film I'm least embarrassed by and ashamed of or uneasy about is Shadowlands. -Richard Attenborough

These matters having been arranged, I had a temporary awning erected near the river, and was for three or four days busily employed writing an account of our journey for the Governor's information. -Charles Sturt

Well, really the way worked was that I had probably built fifty robots before Mystery Science Theater, and I had sold them in a store in Minneapolis in a store called Props, which was kind of a high end gift shop. -Joel Hodgson

I'd visit the near future, close enough that someone might want to talk to Larry Niven and can figure out the language; distant enough to get me decent medical techniques and a ticket to the Moon. -Larry Niven

Others, amounting to four novels and a mess of short stories which I did not think worth preserving, I have done my best to eliminate from the record by refusing all requests for permission to reprint them, and I hope I have done a good job of making them hard to unearth. -Leslie Charteris

I was passionate. I found something that I loved. I could be all alone in a big old skating rink and nobody could get near me and I didn't have to talk to anybody because of my shyness. It was great. I was in my fantasy world. -Dorothy Hamill

We believe the 36, nearly 40, billion pound discount given for a right to buy houses took a million houses out of the public housing sector which is desperately needed for rent. -John Prescott

Unless I'm really uneasy with what I'm writing, I lose interest very quickly. -Paul Haggis

It's a problem for him because he's got – like Edward VII had – nearly all his lifetime to wait until he becomes Monarch. What is he going to do with it? So he wants to do something positive but he always courts those dangers. -Anthony Holden

In addition, I'm finishing a track for the movie 'Waking Up In Reno', but there are numerous other singers I look forward to recording with in the near future. -Dwight Yoakam

Speed eventually neared its peak. The records forced me to work ever harder to drop a less and less time. These time trials came to feel like races, which are fun to run sporadically but not daily. -Joe Henderson

I've lived nearby since 1981 and probably have averaged one run a week there. That's more than 1,000 repetitions, and I have yet to tire of this course. -Joe Henderson

And then as I frequently do, some times I'll peek out from underneath the focusing cloth and just look around the edges of the frame that I'm not seeing, see if there's something that should be adjusted in terms of changing the camera position. -John Sexton

I've found even after nearly 30 years of doing this, there are all kinds of new surprises that rear their heads at various times and I truly believe that 51% of the images, success takes place in the darkroom. -John Sexton

I think you grow through your experiences; you get better as you grow and I'm not nearly where I think I'm going to be eventually where I inspire to be and hopefully the opportunities will continue to come. -Nia Long

I think it was lucky that during most of the work on the Odyssey I lived on Homer's sea in houses that were, in one case, shaken by the impact of the Mediterranean winter storms on the rocks below. -Robert Fitzgerald

Anyway, so what he did was, he spread sheets for 100 yards and underneath them he'd put things so there were bumps and different levels and on top he'd put little bushes and if you didn't look to close, it looked like snow! -Rod Steiger

If he didn't fall in love he would have never come back near the end of the film. Because, what man is going to dishonor himself so that he comes back in front of the man that took a woman away from him… and warns her to save her life? -Rod Steiger

To the scientist there is the joy in pursuing truth which nearly counteracts the depressing revelations of truth. -H. P. Lovecraft

So, when you see a kid with ratty jeans on, wearing sneakers that aren't clean, you know they're in a certain place economically. I was interested in that experience. -Jim McKay

English of course is your major tool, but it is not nearly so important as other aspects of writing for example you have to have some natural ability you can't buy it no one puts it there you're born with it. -Leon Uris

For six years, I kept my five Olympic medals wrapped in a plastic bread bag beneath my bed. -Mary Lou Retton

A chief called Lawyer, because he was a great talker, took the lead in the council, and sold nearly all the Nez Perce country. -Chief Joseph

I don't look to find an educated person in the ranks of university graduates, necessarily. Some of the most educated people I know have never been near a university. -John Keegan

On The Others, very atmospheric and probably mysterious is how I would say it felt to be on the set. It felt just a little uneasy, the atmosphere that we were trying to capture. -Christopher Eccleston

Half of Google's revenue comes from selling text-based ads that are placed near search results and are related to the topic of the search. Another half of its revenues come from licensing its search technology to companies like Yahoo. -Eric Schmidt

I have yet to see a drama that puts forward women who are successful and also have a family… they are nearly always seen as victims. -Francesca Annis

I've supported myself by writing since 1992, and I'm probably very nearly unemployable by now because employers are likely to be put off by the long gap. -Greg Egan

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

I was born 'neath a clouded star. -Julia Ward Howe

We are enmeshed in a lineage that came from somewhere and is going to make way for the next generation. -Leon Kass

This identity, this mind, this particular cast of speech, is nearly over. -Harold Brodkey

Of everyone else who was running, and there were some very talented people, none of them had anywhere near the experience I had in hiring people, holding them accountable, creating systems for accountability. -John Hickenlooper

If it was really successful, it was a life calling, a career I was excited about doing, so I didn't think the overall risk was anywhere near as high as what the reward was. -John Hickenlooper

But on second thought, after I decreed the state of emergency, I came to the conclusion that that was impossible to achieve without bloodshed because the street protesters were full of anger and nearly out of control. This is why I thought we needed to find another way out. -Eduard Shevardnadze

Yeah, for some reason parrots have to bite me. That's their job. I don't know why that is. They've nearly torn my nose off. I've had some really bad parrot bites. -Steve Irwin

It does not follow that the meaning must be given from above; that life and suffering must come neatly labeled; that nothing is worth while if the world is not governed by a purpose. -Walter Kaufmann

On my own I generally have very messy hair, wear jeans and sneakers. -Jewel

I have a sneaking suspicion that all religions lead to the same place, a very unified place. -Jewel

Silence is the pause in me when I am near to God. -Arvo Part

Let it be remembered, too, that at a time of war, nearly every one is under great strain. -William Lyon Mackenzie King

Although a food processor is not an absolutely essential piece of equipment, because you can certainly chop, grate, slice, knead and mix everything by hand, it does do all these things very quickly and efficiently and saves you time and energy. -Delia Smith

It's estimated for every $1 billion we spend on road construction, nearly 48,000 jobs are created. -Dennis Hastert

Today, nearly 40 percent of a senior's healthcare spending is on pharmaceutical medications. -Dennis Hastert

You will seek not a near but a distant objective, and you will not be satisfied with what you may have done. -Abbott L. Lowell

Nothing about it interested me. Or about anything else, except making up stories. If literacy weren't so nearly universal, God knows what I'd be. A drain on the State, I shouldn't wonder. -Donald E. Westlake

I have things in my head that are not like what anyone has taught me – shapes and ideas so near to me – so natural to my way of being and thinking that it hasn't occurred to me to put them down. -Georgia O'Keeffe

I said to myself, I have things in my head that are not like what anyone has taught me – shapes and ideas so near to me – so natural to my way of being and thinking that it hasn't occurred to me to put them down. -Georgia O'Keeffe

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

After much diligent research, aided by other women, I gradually came to understand that beneath the familiar Goddesses of the patriarchy, there is a much more ancient Goddess. -Carol P. Christ

We saw in 2003 the beginnings of an outbreak of an illness called SARS. SARS ended up killing 800 people which is a significant number of deaths, but nowhere near as high as it could have been. -Michael C. Burgess

That dichotomy between the public consumption of the work and my intent and practice in making it is an uneasy one for me, on occasion. -Jock Sturges

The fact of the Watergate cover-up is not nearly as interesting as the step into making the cover-up. And when you understand the step, you understand that Richard Nixon lied. That he was a criminal. -Bob Woodward

Rocket scientists agree that we have about reached the limit of our ability to travel in space using chemical rockets. To achieve anything near the speed of light we will need a new energy source and a new propellant. Nuclear fission is not an option. -Wilson Greatbatch

The world will step aside for nearly anyone who has the courage of his of her opinions. -George Weinberg

The people of the Southern States now own near five millions of these negroes, and they are worth to them near three millions of dollars. -John H. Reagan

The idea that you can make love and not war really is pretty neat. That thing in Korea, the thing in Israel – that's all over the world. There must be a new way of thinking. -F. Murray Abraham

The trick is to have my own particular taste and feel for the theater to audiences who have been used to one particular style and taste for nearly 40 years. -Michael Ritchie

Alchemy is the art of far and near, and I think poetry is alchemy in that way. It's delightful to distort size, to see something that's tiny as though it were vast. -Robert Morgan

The discoloration is very minimal. I have not turned blue. The extent of skin discoloration is not even remotely near what the news media are saying. It is barely noticeable. -Stan Jones

Aggression is the most common behavior used by many organizations, a nearly invisible medium that influences all decisions and actions. -Margaret J. Wheatley

The progress of the American Revolution has been so rapid and such the alteration of manners, the blending of characters, and the new train of ideas that almost universally prevail, that the principles which animated to the noblest exertions have been nearly annihilated. -Mercy Otis Warren

There are challenges in terms of the measurement of VAR for what are known as nonlinear derivatives, where things like gamma and vega are important dimensions of the risk. -John Hull

At the time when I was conducting my research there was no known method for taking the guinea pig's temperature. I demonstrated a technique which is now widely used. -Charles Jules Henry Nicole

From the practical point of view, the susceptibility to infection of the guinea pig proved to be the most useful step forward. Today, all laboratories use this animal for preserving the virus. -Charles Jules Henry Nicole

The discovery that I soon made that the guinea pig was also susceptible to infection made it possible for me, from the third year on, to preserve the virus on this animal. -Charles Jules Henry Nicole

As the third anniversary of the September 11th attacks draws near we must ensure our nation is prepared to handle the continued threat of violence and terrorism on our country. -Leonard Boswell

I shot Footloose nearby, and we used to hike. Very fond memories. -Dianne Wiest

I used to sit near Marilyn Monroe in the Actor's Studio. She'd get dressed up because that was her identity. Sad. Those cameras wouldn't leave her alone. She didn't know where to hide. -Doris Roberts

Put a bird cage near the window so that the bird can see the sky? It's much better to look than not to, even if it hurts. -Klaus Kinski

You take the cards you're dealt. I'm now ferociously healthy in body and mind. You couldn't pay me to go near a psychiatrist again. Stopping seeing them was my first step to getting well. -Margot Kidder

The studio rented a house for my wife in Los Angeles under a phony name to keep reporters away. Whenever I wanted to visit her and my children, I would have to sneak in the back door after dark. -Max von Sydow

During my nearly five years as director-general of WHO, high-level policymakers have increasingly recognized that health is central to sustainable development. -Gro Harlem Brundtland

The cause of the break with the tradition of antiquity was the rapid and unexpected advance of Islam. The result of this advance was the final separation of East from West, and the end of the Mediterranean unity. -Henri Pirenne

The Germanic invasions destroyed neither the Mediterranean unity of the ancient world, nor what may be regarded as the truly essential features of the Roman culture as it still existed in the 5th century, at a time when there was no longer an Emperor in the West. -Henri Pirenne

Our principal writers have nearly all been fortunate in escaping regular education. -Hugh MacDiarmid

Of course the word chaos is used in rather a vague sense by a lot of writers, but in physics it means a particular phenomenon, namely that in a nonlinear system the outcome is often indefinitely, arbitrarily sensitive to tiny changes in the initial condition. -Murray Gell-Mann

I took group lessons at a rink near my home. We first had to learn how to stand up on the ice wearing skates. Eventually we learned to move forward, but soon found out that it was not that easy to stop! So that was our next important lesson. -Nancy Kerrigan

We thus see that the Greeks of the early ages knew little of any real people except those to the east and south of their own country, or near the coast of the Mediterranean. -Thomas Bulfinch

You see, 30 years ago I didn't have near the audience I have now. My tapes on the cults have reached a circulation of 15 million. those are not my figures but the figures of the people who distribute them. -Walter Martin

We don't always know what we're doing. We often just get excited, put something down, and say, 'Oh, neat'. -Tina Weymouth

Turkeys, quails, and small birds, are here to be seen; but birds are not numerous in desart forests; they draw near to the habitations of men, as I have constantly observed in all my travels. -William Bartram

Beef also was difficult to be procured and exceedingly poor; the price nearly sixpence farthing per pound. -William Bligh

Sometimes, I sit down to sketch at the unearthly hour of 3 in the morning! -Nafisa Joseph

The stage is near and dear to me. -Bela Lugosi

There was no one near to confuse me, so I was forced to become original. -Joseph Haydn

The International Brigades and the British volunteers were, numerically, only a small part of the Republican forces, but nearly all had accepted the need for organization and order in civilian life. -Bill Alexander

I rode it once, which was up the driveway in the opening credits of the show. I didn't know how to stop it. I actually nearly killed the director of photography, and I smashed into the sound truck. -Henry Winkler

The atmosphere is much too near for dreams. It forces us to action. It is close to us. We are in it and of it. It rouses us both to study and to do. We must know its moods and also its motive forces. -Cleveland Abbe

The nearest figure to myself would be Shakespeare. -Michael Tippett

The course of the flight up and down was exceedingly erratic, partly due to the irregularity of the air, and partly to lack of experience in handling this machine. The control of the front rudder was difficult on account of its being balanced too near the center. -Orville Wright

The drink? Yes, I've had tough times in my life, especially the last year, regarding my ex-wife, my kids, I nearly broke my neck, I was on death row with pneumonia. -Paul Gascoigne

It was all that stuff about taking your parents' car when you're 13, sneaking booze into rock shows and ditching school with your friends. I could relate to that as a former teenager, rather than as a present parent. -Donal Logue

I love the walk although my security team weren't too sure to begin with but I was anxious to be able to lead a near normal life. Whilst walking I do get the chance to meet people and keep in touch. -David Blunkett

Well, I was born in El Paso, Texas, it was in the nearest hospital to the family farm. -Sam Donaldson

I read The Bell Jar, and then I read her memoir and her diaries, and a third book, an outside opinion. Just the way she made the pillows so neat on the oven door. It just seems to be the opposite of, if you're going to take your life, in a horrible rage it happens. -Paul Westerberg

In nearly all ballads, the words set the mood and meaning, while the music intensifies or enhances them. -Kate Smith

The other guys drink, but they don't drink anywhere near what I used to. And I think they're slightly respectful of the fact that I'm off it, so it's not a problem. -Graham Coxon

It's a perfectly human instinct to want to be near water. -Stone Gossard

When I wrote the song, I had the sea near Bombay in mind. We stayed at a hotel by the sea, and the fishermen come up at five in the morning and they were all chanting. And we went on the beach and we got chased by a mad dog – big as a donkey. -Ray Davies

Those three chords were part of my life – G, F, Bb – yeh, it is, it is, and I can't help noticing it. But there have been other things nearly as close to it which people haven't noticed, other things we have done. -Ray Davies

Friends, near or far, are important to us. All of ours have an awareness of other persons' feelings, a courtesy that's inevitable. When I find that consideration in a fan, I'm immediately impressed. -Kent McCord

More than one-third of Mexicans in the United States own property in Mexico, nearly 80 percent send money home and 25 percent have a spouse in Mexico. Assimilation and becoming an American citizen are not the objective for many of them. -John Shadegg

You know, this is really a way of cooking. It's not my way. I'm deeply influenced by the Mediterranean way of being. I've spent a lot of time there. And I've sort of translated it; I've tried to make it available to people in this country to whom it might not be familiar. -Sally Schneider

There is a lot of rubbish written about toilet humour – people saying it is childish and pretending it is beneath them – but there is no doubting the effectiveness of a really good willy gag. -Adrian Edmondson

Because after my first year I had a lot of success, took everybody by storm, came back the next year thought it was easy and didn't have near the season I had the previous year. It was kind of a wake-up call. And so, life goes on. -Brett Favre

I certainly love doing comedy and feel most comfortable near it. -Candice Bergen

Also, I walk and hike in several different nearby parks near our home several early mornings a week. -Malcolm Boyd

The closest fires were near enough for us to hear the crackling flames and the yells of firemen. Little fires grew into big ones even as we watched. Big ones died down under the firemen's valor only to break out again later. -Ernie Pyle

I had been a student in Vienna, and one of the neat little things I had found out was about that zoo. It was a good debut novel for me to have published. I was 26 or 27 when it was published. I already had a kid and would soon have a second. -John Irving

I had nearly finished school because I was making effort not that bad on that. But there was a law in Germany after the war. You could not make your final examination before 18, so lots of people who were late because of the way had to do it first. -Karl Lagerfeld

What these guys are doing is great for Argentinean tennis. This is motivating other people. -Gabriela Sabatini

My movies just kind of sneak up on you. I don't have to worry too much about what everybody is going to say. Anyway, I really don't pay attention to what the world says about my movies. I just care about what my buddies think. -Adam Sandler

I'm not interested at all in playing more than 12, 15 tournaments a year on an annual basis because like all the old guys out here on this Tour, we've played golf for nearly 30 years of our lives. -Greg Norman

In Morocco, it's possible to see the Atlantic and the Mediterranean at the same time. -Tahar Ben Jelloun

I really think that's what music and art is about. It's another way to connect to the divine. It's a real pure way of touching that deeper reality beneath our life. -Kathy Mattea

The country life near Manchester I really love. -Ruud van Nistelrooy

Who's sorry for a gnat or girl? -Elizabeth Barrett Browning

He who lives in our mind is near though he may actually be far away; but he who is not in our heart is far though he may really be nearby. -Chanakya

There is no neat distinction between operating system software and the software that runs on top of it. -Jim Allchin

I'm not homely enough to play the nerdy girl and not nearly pretty enough to play the pretty girl. -Kristen Bell

Mr. Obama plans to boost federal spending 25 percent while nearly tripling the national debt over 10 years. Americans know that this kind of spending will have economic consequences, including new taxes being imposed by the new progressives. -Karl Rove

The longer the president goes without telling his side of the story, the more unease there will be in the public. -George Stephanopoulos

'Empathy' is the latest code word for liberal activism, for treating the Constitution as malleable clay to be kneaded and molded in whatever form justices want.

If I ever complain about yachting around the Mediterranean with Madonna, who I just idolized as a child, I should be slapped across the face. -Elizabeth Banks

The airheads of Congress will keep their own plush healthcare plan – it's the rest of us guinea pigs who will be thrown to the wolves. -Camille Paglia

You bet every member of Congress who votes for this bill ought to read it, read it thoroughly, and understand that what we're looking at here amounts to nothing more than a government takeover of our health care economy, paid for with nearly a trillion dollars in new taxes on individuals and small businesses. And it must be opposed. -Mike Pence

The 2008 election settled nothing, not even for a while. Our national politics are reflecting what appears to be going on geologically, on the bottom of the oceans and beneath the crust of the Earth: the tectonic plates are moving. -Peggy Noonan

For many members of Congress, the time for choosing is near – do what the party leadership demands, or do what the people have asked you to do. If my colleagues don't mind some advice from a newcomer, I'd suggest going with the will of the people. -Scott Brown

One state retiree, 49 years old, paid, over the course of his entire career, a total of $124,000 towards his retirement pension and health benefits.

And on this you have my pledge – unlike in the past, when you stood up and did what was right, this governor will not pull the rug out from underneath you – I will sign strong reform bills. -Chris Christie

We're trying to set up a movie for me in the near future. It's going to be similar to the story of how I got discovered. Kinda like my own version of '8 Mile.' -Justin Bieber

I'm looking at working with people I get on with, that respect me, that don't just see me as a piece of ass. Which I have experienced as well. I've nearly walked off very big films before, and I would, because I don't want that in my life. I want to enjoy the work I do. -Gemma Arterton

It took us years to get into the mess that we got ourselves in at the end of 2008, and it's going to take a while to get us out. We lost eight million jobs, we saw a financial system near collapse, we have a continuing housing crisis that we're making progress on dealing with. -Robert Gibbs

We are still so close, David and I. We were at a party the other day at my mum's house and I was sitting on his lap. We're very affectionate.

As we've gotten more successful, there's a gap between the speed of our publishing pipeline and the speed of our receiving submissions pipeline. Our pipeline of leaks has been increasing exponentially as our profile rises, and our ability to publish is increasing linearly. -Julian Assange

I think in the end, when you're famous, people like to narrow you down to a few personality traits. I think I've just become this ambitious, say-whatever's-on-her-mind, intimidating person. And that's part of my personality, but it's certainly not anywhere near the whole thing. -Madonna Ciccone

The Beliebers have done some pretty crazy stuff. Last week, the night before I was due to do a show in Germany, four girls went into a dumpster so they could sneak into the building. They climbed in and hid. When the guys working on the truck started getting the garbage they found them straight away. It was crazy. -Justin Bieber

Since taking office, President Obama has signed into law spending increases of nearly 25 percent for domestic government agencies – an 84 percent increase when you include the failed stimulus. All of this new government spending was sold as 'investment.' -Paul Ryan

In 1977 we played America and Europe three times, and Japan – my marriage suffered as a result. My then wife took the kids to Canada to be near her parents. -Phil Collins

When I was fourteen and first started going out, I always wanted to be the opposite of everyone else. So I would go to the club in a polo T-shirt and pants and sneakers and a hat on backward, just so I would not be dressed like other girls. -Rihanna

When I get into trouble at school I'd like to take an invisibility cloak, drape it over me and sneak out the door. Or I'd like to have a 3 headed-dog because then no one would argue with me. -Daniel Radcliffe

The chemotherapy was very peculiar, something that makes you feel much worse than the cancer itself, a very nasty thing. I used to go to treatment on my own, and nearly everybody else was with somebody. I wouldn't have liked that. Why would you want to make anybody sit in those places? -Maggie Smith

Today's preoccupation with physical theories of everything takes a wrong turn from the purpose of science – to question all things relentlessly. Modern physics has become like Swift's kingdom of Laputa, flying absurdly on an island above the earth and indifferent to what is beneath. -Robert Lanza

So someday in the near future hopefully rather than having a foot or a leg amputated we'll just give you an injection of the cells and restore the blood flow. We've also created entire tubes of red blood cells from scratch in the laboratory. So there are a lot of exciting things in the pipeline. -Robert Lanza

I was, aged nine, the go-to kid in Minneapolis for a commercial voiceover. -Vincent Kartheiser

I write about things that are important for us as Americans. I'm concerned about al-Qaeda sneaking across the border with the illegal immigrants that are using the coyotes to get across the border. And that's not a Democrat or Republican issue, that's a national security issue. -Brad Thor

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

I think that when you get dressed in the morning, sometimes you're really making a decision about your behavior for the day. Like if you put on flipflops, you're saying: 'Hope I don't get chased today.' 'Be nice to people in sneakers.' -Demetri Martin

I don't think I've ever worked so hard on something, but working on Macintosh was the neatest experience of my life. Almost everyone who worked on it will say that. None of us wanted to release it at the end. It was as though we knew that once it was out of our hands, it wouldn't be ours anymore. -Steve Jobs

A lot of people in our industry haven't had very diverse experiences. So they don't have enough dots to connect, and they end up with very linear solutions without a broad perspective on the problem. The broader one's understanding of the human experience, the better design we will have. -Steve Jobs

President Obama's call for nearly a half-trillion dollars in more government stimulus when America has more than $14 trillion in debt is guided by his mistaken belief that we can spend our way to prosperity. -Rick Perry

We are all in this together. We want to have, I suppose, a single point of entry so that anyone coming near a disability service can get a very complete picture. Government needs to understand that picture, and we need to be able to offer somebody a one-stop shop. -Jay Weatherill

Did you know that nearly one in three children live apart from their biological dads? Those kids are two to three times more likely to grow up in poverty, to suffer in school, and to have health and behavioral problems. -Tony Dungy

As far as I'm concerned, I'm now in the business of making spiritual records and using my voice for that purpose. I'm not going to be singing songs that I made in the past. I closed the door on that incarnation of Sinead O'Connor. -Sinead O'Connor

I've always been drawn to discomfort and that limbo of unease you get between comedy and tragedy. Making people laugh one moment and the next making them feel really uncomfortable. -Steve Coogan

I enjoyed school – although I ran away on the first day. I'd reminded the teacher that it was nearly time for 'Watch With Mother' on TV. -Paul O'Grady

Quite often I can be in a bookshop, standing beneath a great big picture of myself and paying for a book with a credit card clearly marked John Grisham, yet no one recognises me. I often say I'm a famous author in a country where no one reads. -John Grisham

A true revolution of values will soon look uneasily on the glaring contrast of poverty and wealth. -Lloyd Banks

I can change a diaper in 30 seconds flat. I set the new one beneath the old one. That way, it's just wipe and pull the flap over. -Drew Brees

I have the loving support of my girlfriend who still attends Wake Forest and is nearing graduation. She helps me cope with the everyday rigors of being an NBA player. -Tim Duncan

A more accurate statement would be that I was the first person since Jedi who was permitted to stick a fork into the piecrust to see if there was still any steam underneath. -Timothy Zahn

When I got the paperwork for Superstars, and I saw they asked what size swimsuit I wear, I had a hot flash, nearly broke into cold sweats and hired a trainer immediately. -Ali Landry

I want to make him the proudest dad to have me and I want to show everybody and nearly be as good as him because he was the best. -Bindi Irwin

I had to learn to dance for 'The Adjustment Bureau' and it was nearly impossible. I turned up with my knees knocking in my leotard and went home and cried my eyes out. -Emily Blunt

Politically, Obama's amazing streak of self-destructing opponents who have lain beneath his feet during his unlikely political career appears to be holding. -Eric Alterman

If newspapers were a baseball team, they would be the Mets – without the hope for those folks at the very pinnacle of the financial food chain – who average nearly $24 million a year in income – 'next year.' -Eric Alterman

Half the U.S. population owns barely 2 percent of its wealth, putting the United States near Rwanda and Uganda and below such nations as pre-Arab Spring Tunisia and Egypt when measured by degrees of income inequality. -Eric Alterman

I'm nearing the end of the road and still learning. -Mike Wallace

In the best of all possible worlds, everybody would be honorable, but that's not the way the world works. Reputations for reporters are made by discovering things underneath that rock. -Mike Wallace

My very first kiss happened when I was 6, underneath some desks during 'nap time', but my first real kiss happened when I was 15 in the parking lot at a Mexican food restaurant. -Armie Hammer

I didn't like the way it looked in white trousers, and I couldn't find anything to work underneath them. -Sara Blakely

There are countries that are near ours which are in the situation which we all know. I want to say that this is not the case of Spain now and it will not be in the future. -Mariano Rajoy

Any time you're near a kangaroo, it's a close call. -Jerry O'Connell

My first job was in sixth grade, sweeping the clay tennis courts at the yacht club near my house, which I was not a member of. Always had to pay my own rent. But I don't really have any concept of how money works. I don't know how much things cost. Like a BMW. Or a quart of milk. It's embarrassing. -Chloe Sevigny

I am an obsessive garage cleaner – my wife and the neighbors make fun of me. I remember that my father was the same way, and now when I'm out there unearthing things in the garage, I realize I am becoming my dad! -Chris O'Donnell

The willow is my favorite tree. I grew up near one. It's the most flexible tree in nature and nothing can break it – no wind, no elements, it can bend and withstand anything. -Pink
