I never planned to be an actor. It turned out I could make a living doing it. -Wallace Shawn

I see myself as a citizen of the planet. Even as a child, I always found it mindless to root for your own team. I was puzzled by the fact that people said their own team was better than other teams simply because it was theirs. -Wallace Shawn

It is hard enough to make a plan for how you are going to spend an evening with somebody else. So to make a plan for how you are going to behave in 25 years seems based on a view of life that is incomprehensible to me. -Wallace Shawn

I think that one's art is a growth inside one. I do not think one can explain growth. It is silent and subtle. One does not keep digging up a plant to see how it grows. -Emily Carr

If a person cannot love a plant after he has pruned it, then he has either done a poor job or is devoid of emotion. -Liberty Hyde Bailey

Give the children an opportunity to make garden. Let them grow what they will. It matters less that they grow good plants than that they try for themselves. -Liberty Hyde Bailey

I do not yet know why plants come out of the land or float in streams, or creep on rocks or roll from the sea. I am entranced by the mystery of them, and absorbed by their variety and kinds. Everywhere they are visible yet everywhere occult. -Liberty Hyde Bailey

The relationship I have to my fatherland is like that of mothers with crippled children: they love them all the more, the more crippled they are. Germany is the background of all my plans, the return to Germany. -Friedrich List

I had planned to accomplish something considerable, and this is the end. -George Phillips Bond

Our plan is to struggle against terrorism and have security for the country and help draft a democratic constitution as soon as possible. -Jalal Talabani

I have departed from this planet and I have left behind my poor earthly ones with their occupations which are as many as they are useless; at last I am living in the scintillating splendor of the stars, each of which used to seem to me as large as millions of suns. -Jules Massenet

And, if we have any evidence that the wisdom which formed the plan is in the man, we have the very same evidence, that the power which executed it is in him also. -Thomas Reid

Every indication of wisdom, taken from the effect, is equally an indication of power to execute what wisdom planned. -Thomas Reid

In all the antique religions, mythology takes the place of dogma; that is, the sacred lore of priests and people… and these stories afford the only explanation that is offered of the precepts of religion and the prescribed rules of ritual. -William Robertson Smith

But if it not be true, the myth itself requires to be explained, and every principle of philosophy and common sense demand that the explanation be sought, not in arbitrary allegorical categories, but in the actual facts of ritual or religious custom to which the myth attaches. -William Robertson Smith

Maybe… there is a perfectly reasonable explanation for unlawfully detaining 120 people. Maybe they just got carried away with last year's idea of pre-emptive strikes and thought, 'Let's not wait for an actual crime to occur. Let's get the innocent. -Mark Thomas

Imagine a world in which every single person on the planet is given free access to the sum of all human knowledge. That's what we're doing. -Jimmy Wales

It wasn't until we got over the self pity that we were able to accept suffering as apart of our life with Christ. A man or woman reaches this plane only when he or she ceases to be the hero. -Corazon Aquino

We must act swiftly in order to halt the rate of decay our planet faces. -Henry W. Kendall

My uncle is a Southern planter. He's an undertaker in Alabama. -Fred Allen

Animals are something invented by plants to move seeds around. An extremely yang solution to a peculiar problem which they faced. -Terence McKenna

It looked like a pagan banner planted on a Christian rampart. -Douglas Reed

A time will come when men will stretch out their eyes. They should see planets like our Earth. -Christopher Wren

Drawing on President Bush's reform plan, which would allow citizens to transfer part of their Social Security contributions into personal accounts, an alteration of the current system is needed to make necessary change. -Jim Leach

At Camp One we were met by Director of Public Works Warwick Greene, grim and grimy. He has been working himself to death to make this transportation plan a success. -William Cameron Forbes

You may shelve your Shakespearian plans for the present. I am going to play Peter Pan. -Maude Adams

There's a huge AIDS epidemic in Africa, and one of Bad Boy's plans this year is to give more awareness to that. We're gonna be doing a big charity concert helping to save some of the brothers and sisters in Africa. -Sean Combs

Although native Africans domesticated some plants in the Sahel and in Ethiopia and in tropical West Africa, they acquired valuable domestic animals only later, from the north. -Jared Diamond

Introspection and preserved writings give us far more insight into the ways of past humans than we have into the ways of past dinosaurs. For that reason, I'm optimistic that we can eventually arrive at convincing explanations for these broadest patterns of human history. -Jared Diamond

Always have a backup plan. -Mila Kunis

The place to find the explanation for the liberal-activist mindset of the courts is in the political arena. -Stockwell Day

I like to be surprised. The best writing is when it defies me, when it starts going a different way than I had planned. -Wally Lamb

What can be more clear and sound in explanation, than the love of a parent to his child? -William Godwin

It appears that there is a genocidal plan against Black people. -Louis Farrakhan

Most intellectuals today have a phobia of any explanation of the mind that invokes genetics. -Steven Pinker

The obsession required to see a feature through from concept to release is not a rational thing to do with your brief time on this planet. Nor is it something to which an intelligent person should aspire. -Yahoo Serious

Perhaps two million years ago the creatures of a planet in some remote galaxy faced a musical crisis similar to that which we earthly composers face today. -George Crumb

I plan on doing a lot more work on my own, and discovering and doing more. -Billy Sheehan

He will therefore have to use what knowledge he can achieve, not to shape the results as the craftsman shapes his handiwork, but rather to cultivate a growth by providing the appropriate environment, in the manner in which the gardener does this for his plants. -Friedrich August von Hayek

I never planned on being a plumber. -Scott Caan

I have no plan to retire anytime soon, although remember I am 50 years old! -Vinnie Vincent

What if it should be God's plan to people the world with better and finer material? -Josiah Strong

The 1993 Social Security tax penalizes seniors who have planned for their retirement through savings, investment and hard work. That's wrong, and that's why the double tax on Social Security must end. -Rob Simmons

Nations, like plants and human beings, grow. And if the development is thwarted they are dwarfed and overshadowed. -Claude McKay

Well I guess the plan was to write poetry and publish books and make a living from writing poetry. That was a pretty ambitious plan I guess. -Robert Adamson

Astronomy teaches the correct use of the sun and the planets. -Stephen Leacock

As the plane got closer to Miami, I had this terrible feeling he was dying. Maybe he was telling me that he was going. I felt anger, panic, despair and helplessness. -Robin Gibb

My songs are self-explanatory… somebody pointed out to me that… my songs pretty much speak for themselves. -Christine McVie

I didn't plan to act, but I'm glad I'm doing it – and I just want to keep getting better. -Meg Tilly

I always wanted to know what lens they were on, how close they were. I didn't do it with a plan in mind, but I would instinctively gear what I was doing toward what lenses they were using. -Donna Mills

I never planned on doing a book about Paul Farmer or his organization. I met him in Haiti when I was on a magazine assignment. It's almost like his story sort of fell in my lap. -Tracy Kidder

I've always done food that can work in a set time frame. The message I'm trying to get across is, it doesn't have to take three days to do this. With planning, you can do a lot and really have quality food every day. -Emeril Lagasse

The only way to save a rhinoceros is to save the environment in which it lives, because there's a mutual dependency between it and millions of other species of both animals and plants. -David Attenborough

Actors need bricks to play with, and in fact we rejected all the improvised fragments we had made without a plan. Improvisation without a plan is like tennis without tennis balls. -Lars von Trier

I get excited about what the Holy Spirit is doing now through all the people he is refining and raising up all over this planet. I love connections and relationship and networking but it must be led by the Spirit. -Daniel Smith

When you leave the planet, you leave music behind. -Alex Van Halen

You come to the planet with nothing and you leave with nothing, so you'd better do some good while you are here. -Alex Van Halen

Use plants to bring life. -Douglas Wilson

I'm very flattered, but I don't think I'm the sexiest man on the planet. -Douglas Wilson

It's true that I have spoken about doing a book before, but then everyone you speak to is planning to write a book. -Dylan Moran

Well, I didn't really have a plan. I just wanted a hit. -Wanda Jackson

There's no tour plans, no reunion, no new album… nothing. -Dee Snider

For the larger interest of humanity, Islamic society presents the safest place on this planet. -Jermaine Jackson

You can make plans but if the opposition plays well, then all your plans become worthless. -David Gower

The reason I'm travelling so much is because of reasons that weren't completely planned. Several of the shows became successful and were invited to go to other places and they've all happened at similar times. -Matthew Bourne

My explanation remains the same: It was an attempt to make the point that anyone who opposed the war can achieve their objective by working within their sphere of influence, whether their political party or community of faith. -Jim Moran

When you're up against an electric band like that, it's like you're on two separate planets. -Keith Jarrett

I was experiencing all the success the entertainment industry has to offer, but I knew there had to be something more. It was sort of through that God prepared me to hear about His great plan. -Kirk Cameron

I love Sweden. The entire world should be like Sweden. They all like to drink and get naked, and the women are hot. I can't think of a better nation on the planet. -Drew Curtis

In writing a series of stories about the same characters, plan the whole series in advance in some detail, to avoid contradictions and inconsistencies. -L. Sprague de Camp

I oppose the president's plan to privatize Social Security. -Brian Higgins

I think anybody would have to be with out common sense to think there weren't aliens. There are billions of planets, and I am convinced Earth is not the only one that's inhabited. It would be quite an ego trip to think that. I think about it all the time. -Sabrina Lloyd

Many are needed to plant and water what has been planted now that the faith has spread so far and there are so many people… No matter who plants or waters, God gives no harvest unless what is planted is the faith of Peter and unless he agrees to his teachings. -Thomas Becket

It is not difficult for me to have this faith, for it is incontrovertible that where there is a plan there is intelligence – an orderly, unfolding universe testifies to the truth of the most majestic statement ever uttered – 'In the beginning, God.' -Arthur Compton

I plan on being a friend, a good leader and a good governor over these next three years. -John Rowland

We've got gays working there. If they can demonstrate long-term relationships, we make same-sex benefits available just as we do with common-law marriages. Gays are productive people. Some fly airplanes, some work in breweries. -Pete Coors

I don't have a plan for a story when I sit down to write. I would get quite bored carrying it out. -Michael Ondaatje

I never have plans for the future as you never know how things will turn out. -Nigella Lawson

The idea is if you use those two shapes and try to colour the plane with them so the colours match, then the only way that you can do this is to produce a pattern which never repeats itself. -Roger Penrose

I had been stockpiling Gospel songs for other artists, and had planned to submit them to Gospel artists. -Smokey Robinson

Despite Arizona's remarkable growth in recent years, we have met the current federal health standards for ozone pollution and the Environmental Protection Agency recently approved our dust control plan. -Jane D. Hull

Clearly the Secretary of Defense, my boss, would like nothing better than to get Osama bin Laden and to get… to ensure the complete defeat of al-Qaida, because we know that al-Qaida is planning operations against the United States even as we speak here. -John Abizaid

Being on the run, having to change the way that you do business, being unable to plan in a safe and secure environment, always looking over your shoulder, knowing that some day somebody's going to knock on your door and it's going to be your last. -John Abizaid

So that a famine price is vague, and the plan subject to all the inconvenience now experienced. -Joseph Hume

We know not of the future and cannot plan for it much. -Joshua Chamberlain

I'm open-minded. I don't consider myself gay or hetero, I just am. I've had experiences all over the planet but it always comes down to just me, but I think at this point if I had an ongoing relationship I believe it would be with a man. -Dana Plato

I think that it's a vital moment now for Russian democracy to convince people that it's only our actions, our joined actions and protests that could force Kremlin to reconsider its plans to abolish presidential elections. -Garry Kasparov

We sat around on a hotel balcony with a bottle of wine and tried to figure out how you would go about blowing up a planet. That's the kind of conversations science fiction writers have when they get together. We don't talk about football or anything like that. -Kevin J. Anderson

We plan absentee ownership as far as running the Yankees is concerned. -George Steinbrenner

It was morning; through the high window I saw the pure, bright blue of the sky as it hovered cheerfully over the long roofs of the neighboring houses. It too seemed full of joy, as if it had special plans, and had put on its finest clothes for the occasion. -Hermann Hesse

The Tom Strong thing was totally for the money. I plan to get looser after I finish this Maggie saga. -Jaime Hernandez

Dull would be the man who should merely tolerate this plan of social industry. Weak would be the position of him who should take an apologetic tone in defending it, or present its claims in a merely negative way, by exposing the evils and perils of the socialistic plan. -John Bates Clark

As the scene of life would be more the cold emptiness of space than the warm, dense atmosphere of planets, the advantage of containing no organic material at all, so as to be independent of both these conditions, would be increasingly felt. -John Desmond Bernal

It is characteristic of science that the full explanations are often seized in their essence by the percipient scientist long in advance of any possible proof. -John Desmond Bernal

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

This marched was planned to be non violent and non confrontational, and gladly it stayed that way. What really impressed me was the self discipline of the Black Block. -John Blair

If the planters carry politics into the fields they will find it bad business. -Charles E. Merrill

If Mr. Ware does not want republican laborers on his plantation, let him pay them in full for the time contracted for, and they will leave his plantation at once. -Charles E. Merrill

I'm always happy to have the President visit North Carolina. Unfortunately, the citizens of North Carolina who could be most adversely affected by the President's plan have not been invited to the discussion. -Mel Watt

The highly skilled workers at Lima have enabled the plant to grow far beyond its original mission, now providing a wide variety of cutting-edge military vehicles and equipment to the Army, Navy, and Marine Corps. -Michael Oxley

Instead of isolating our school and our many subjects from the every day world, we intend to plant it not merely in the French capital, but in what for next summer at least will be the focal point, the capital of the entire civilized world. -Patrick Geddes

We're planning on being married for a long, long time. -Nick Lachey

Well I'm not much of a singer. But it's been a really nice time to do film, television, theater and have it all happening at once. That wasn't planned but it just happens. -Peter Krause

As a planning board commissioner, I have to review the applications for development throughout the city, and the bulk of those applications have been for the waterfront. I think the progress the waterfront has made is amazing. -Vincent Frank

I now have a plan – I haven't had a plan up until this year. -Joan Severance

There's like a special group of people that come from different parts of the planet to study with me. It's nice. I just gave a workshop in Boston at the New England Conservatory, which was really nice. -Charlie Haden

We're here to bring beauty to the world and make a difference in this planet. That's what art forms are about. -Charlie Haden

We are aware that many national farm organizations are putting forth various plans to provide both short- and long-term relief to our nation's agricultural producers. While we believe long-term solutions are essential, the current situation demands a more immediate response. -Mel Carnahan

I had done a lot of rock 'n' roll photography when I was in college. I was one of many photographers who worked for The Doors, Jefferson Airplane, and all of these rock 'n' roll bands. -John Dykstra

It's very much like filmmaking always is-you're always asked to do something that you're not sure you know how to do. So you make an educated guess as to what you think will work and you hope between that and plan B, that you can end up with a product that's really good. -John Dykstra

The sun and its retinue of planets drift as a group through the vast gulfs of space that separate the stars. -Barney Oliver

And I plan to write a sequel to Dragon Rider. -Cornelia Funke

I loved to get all dusty and ride horses and plant potatoes and cotton. -Dorothy Malone

One of the jokes on our flight is that, if we have a normal entry day going, the plan is for me… to actually take the orbiter first and fly it for maybe 10 or 15 seconds and then hand it on over to Scooter. -Duane G. Carey

As a matter of fact, an ordinary desert supports a much greater variety of plants than does either a forest or a prairie. -Ellsworth Huntington

Social Security is a plan that actually was designed in a much different time, in a different era, and with a different set of American demographics in mind. -Ginny Brown-Waite

The nations were awakened from the sleep of death, as the words of eternal life flowed from the Apostles' lips, – the temples of superstition were shut or destroyed, and churches were planted in every part of the civilized world. -John Strachan

Gen. Banks has issued an order for the instruction of Negro children. Schoolhouses are to be built or rented and Teachers hired for this purpose, and the farmers and planters are to pay the Taxes in support of this. -Knute Nelson

The people of Australia would be staggered to learn that Australia has no national development plan. -Lionel Murphy

The Menzies Government, by its participation in the plans for the development of other nations, can see the virtue of planning for them but apparently cannot see the virtue of a plan for Australia. -Lionel Murphy

Where there is a will there is a way. And this must be the way not of compulsion but of cooperation… No government and no plan can succeed without it. -Lionel Murphy

The premise of this foundation is one life on this planet is no more valuable than the next. -Melinda Gates

Through no divine design or cosmic plan, we have inherited the mantle of life's caretaker on the earth, the only home we have ever known. -Michael Shermer

By requiring that any surplus in Social Security taxes be returned to the American people in personal savings accounts, the plan ensures that Social Security taxes will be used for Social Security. -Mike Pence

If I planned everything out in advance, I'd expire of boredom. -Peter Straub

Mercury pollution from power plants is a national problem that requires a national response. -Tom Allen

The offshore ocean area under U.S. jurisdiction is larger than our land mass, and teems with plant and animal life, mineral resources, commerce, trade, and energy sources. -Tom Allen

When I was producing on my own, I was doing it in order to – in a very patriarchal entertainment industry, let alone planet – very much hell-bent on trying to prove to myself, if nothing else, that I could do it as a woman. -Alanis Morissette

Their plan is to return the entire world – not just the Middle East – to the days of the caliphate and either convert all of us so-called infidels into born-again Islamic believers or kill us. -David Hackworth

For the greater beauty of the instrument, the balls representing the planets are to be of considerable bigness; but so contrived, that they may be taken off at pleasure, and others, much smaller, and fitter for some purposes, put in their places. -David Rittenhouse

The only plan the Administration seems to have for winning the war is that there is no plan and no schedule for our troops to come home and get out of harm's way. -Eliot Engel

As mayor of San Francisco, I will provide the vision and work hard to make San Francisco a beautiful, well-planned city with excellent housing and transportation options. -Gavin Newsom

Like any small business owner, I experienced the pressures of building a company from the ground up – developing a business plan, balancing the books, meeting payroll and building a customer base. -Gavin Newsom

San Francisco businesses face many challenges, including high rents, regulatory burdens, and the rising cost of workers compensation insurance and employee health plans. -Gavin Newsom

I write pretty much anywhere – on planes, in hotel rooms, anywhere in my house. -Jeffery Deaver

I walked in and inherited a management group that I didn't know very well. They didn't know me, and we had a very short window to put together a credible recovery plan. -William Clay Ford, Jr.

We planted bugs, microphones, in premises which interested us in the West. We weren't too successful – I would have said unfortunately in former years, but I don't care anymore now. -Markus Wolf

We're trying to fix this with the plan we've been floating. Now, the law says the transition ends in 2006 or – and the 'or' is the only part that matters – 85 percent of Americans go buy a digital TV. -Michael K. Powell

We draft mostly high school kids and we have one of the finest, if not the finest, player development programs and coaching staffs and we teach our players the right way to play. We also have a game plan in scouting, and there are certain types of players that we look for. -Roy Clark

I have three degrees in history and only one in law, but since I came back to specialize in constitutional law where history is so essentially a part and an explanation of much that exists, the two disciplines blended very well. -Frank Scott

Is it absurd to imagine that our social behavior, from amoeba to man, is also planned and dictated, from stored information, by the cells? And that the time has come for men to be entrusted with the task, through heroic efforts, of bringing life to other worlds? -Albert Claude

I'm planning on finishing the Gospels at some point. -Chester Brown

The director is planning on titling the film 'Yummy Fur' so we are probably planning on changing the title of the book to 'Yummy Fur' to match the film. -Chester Brown

There's a bit of debate about that; some say it was really Matthew, but the popular consensus is that Mark was the first one, so that's why I did that one first. And I was planning on doing all four. -Chester Brown

The time has mainly gone on getting Inform into a decent shape for public use. I suppose the plot of 'Curses' makes a sequel conceivable when compared with, say, the plot of 'Hamlet' but none is planned. -Graham Nelson

I hope to be with you as a writer for a very long time, and I hope that you will enjoy reading my work, because readers are the highest form of life on this planet. -Guy Johnson

The party line is that stocks historically have outperformed all other investment plans. -Jim Cramer

Just having the pain of being alive without anything else, whether it's good or bad. There's a lot of serious songs on the record, you know. That song is just about feeling like a fish out of water, feeling like you don't belong on the planet sometimes. -Jon Crosby

You might hold an ethical position that it's wrong to lie, but if you have plans for a war in Iraq, and you want to keep them secret for practical reasons – to reduce casualties, perhaps – and someone asks you about those plans, you may need to lie for a 'good' outcome. -Peter Singer

Jimmy Carter began his planning in the early summer of 1976, Ronald Reagan a year prior. The Clinton Administration, elected in 1992, lingered in naming its team, and as a result, took almost a year to staff its ranks. -Richard V. Allen

Temporary teams of trusted people are generally sent to all Departments and to major agencies of government to assist in planning and to acquaint the incoming administration with the civil servants and bureaucracy that will remain in place in the new Administration. -Richard V. Allen

The choice of personnel, perhaps the most important choice (because 'people are policy'), never proceeds according to plan, but there have been some successful transitions that upheld high standards. -Richard V. Allen

I think we have the same goals in mind. We are not planning on just all of a sudden taking a film and separating. Hopefully one day she can direct me in something, or I will direct her. Or we'll produce a movie under our company's name. -Mary-Kate Olsen

Our ultimate goal is to stay in business. We are not here with a specific plan. That's kind of how our entire career has evolved. We will figure things out as we go along. -Mary-Kate Olsen

It's been a strange day – a day when I thought I was on top of the world, planning my life. I planned all of my courses for the rest of the semester at Smith, and talked to my advisor about honoring in History. -Julie Nixon Eisenhower

The theory of cultural bias… is the idea that a culture is based on a particular form of organization. It can't be transplanted except to another variant of that organization. -Mary Douglas

I ended up buying a restaurant. Already we had invested in a gas station and a metal products plant. -Esther Williams

I like to be sort of grounded with Fish. But, at the same time, I think probably what's unique about us is the way other dynamics happen, where I'll play off Trey for awhile. When we start playing a jam, I don't usually know what's going to happen, I don't have a plan. -Mike Gordon

What does it feel like to be a parent? What does it feel like to be a child? And that's what stories do. They bring you there. They offer a dramatic explanation, which is always different from an expository explanation. -Richard Russo

And I fly planes all the time. And helicopters. -Treat Williams

Hence a ship is said to be tight, when her planks are so compact and solid as to prevent the entrance of the water in which she is immersed: and a cask is called tight, when the staves are so close that none of the liquid contained therein can issue through or between them. -William Falconer

Another goal is to look to the resources we have and to see how we could do better to plan, in a sense, for the faculty and infrastructure that we will need to study Asia well into the 21st century. -William C. Kirby

Wake up, Carolee, the plane is waiting for us, we have to get to the game. -Al Davis

Therefore, in the course of the work I have followed this plan: I describe in the first book all the positions of the orbits together with the movements which I ascribe to the Earth, in order that this book might contain, as it were, the general scheme of the universe. -Nicolaus Copernicus

Accordingly, since nothing prevents the earth from moving, I suggest that we should now consider also whether several motions suit it, so that it can be regarded as one of the planets. For, it is not the center of all the revolutions. -Nicolaus Copernicus

In so many and such important ways, then, do the planets bear witness to the earth's mobility. -Nicolaus Copernicus

As I listened, it occurred to me that interest in and affection for the animals that share the planet with us may be a more unifying force than any other. -Nick Clooney

The difference is that for a soundly conceived and solidly endowed republic it takes a great deal longer for those seeds to germinate and the plants to grow. -Robert W. Welch, Jr.

During one or two summers, as well as part-time during the school year, I worked for a small Canadian company which developed electrical instruments for military planes. -Walter Kohn

Originally I had planned to revert to nuclear physics there, in particular the structure of the deuteron. -Walter Kohn

People come in with business plans and, I mean I know that no one is going to meet everything they say in a business plan but you got to have something to, to guide towards. -Arthur Rock

Predators make it much more difficult to find consensus. It's a lot easier to agree about birds and plants than about animals that endanger people and livestock. -Gale Norton

We do have serious energy needs for the country, we are aware that natural gas is especially in demand because of its air quality benefits: 90 percent of new power plants have been natural gas-powered. -Gale Norton

Hundreds of millions of human beings on our planet increasingly suffer from unemployment, poverty, hunger, and the destruction of their families. -Hans Kung

For my part, I plan to work out a fair and adequate redistribution of city services to all city neighborhoods. -Jane Byrne

In the housing projects, people talked of ways to reduce crime, relieve overcrowding, and they were good ideas that we plan to study, and possibly implement. -Jane Byrne

It's up to people like us, all of us, to address and talk about things like runaway global warming and how we can use things like remote viewing to save our planet. -Jim Sullivan

I'll probably make loads of plans, and then just sit around on my bottom all day long and do nothing. -John Deacon

The problems in California have been that it's been very difficult to site and build new power plants. -Kenneth Lay

I would suggest, merely as a metaphor here, but also as the basis for a scientific program to investigate the computational capacity of the universe, that this is also a reasonable explanation for why the universe is complex. -Seth Lloyd

I am planning to return and contest the October elections in Pakistan. -Benazir Bhutto

The Cox Report documents a systematic, well-planned effort by the Chinese military at the highest levels to target and acquire technology for military modernization. -Charles Bass

We are thinking ahead to long-term care, aware that many folks don't plan ahead and won't be ready. We want to see to it that people will have choices. -Christine Gregoire

I sort of kept my hand in writing and went to work for the Sierra Club in '52, walked the plank there in '69, founded Friends of the Earth and the League of Conservation Voters after that. -David R. Brower

What's even more unsettling is the way these people hide what they're doing from the public. They strip the labels off miracle wheat when they ship it, for instance, and say, 'Watch out. Don't plant too much and don't depend on it too much.' -David R. Brower

For how many people do you think might yet stand on this planet before the sun grows cold? That's the responsibility we hold in our hands. -David R. Brower

Stories where the author has known very little, but run a computer program that tells him how to construct a planet, and looked up specific things about rocketry and so on, really suck. -Frederik Pohl

I firmly believe that as voters come to learn more and more about John Kerry and learn more and more about his message that they're going to want a President who is willing to address the fact that we didn't have a post-war plan in Iraq. -Harold Ford, Jr.

I think the new spirituality will be a spirituality that's not based on a particular dogma. And that steps away from the old spiritual paradigm that we have created on this planet, which comes from a thought that there is such a thing as being better. -Neale Donald Walsch

I'm calling my book series the 'with God series.' And this next 'with God' book is Friendship with God, which comes out in November. This books challenges us to bring about the end of 'better' on this planet. -Neale Donald Walsch

As the new spirituality begins to become the pervasive spirituality of the planet, we'll find that we have abandoned our philosophy of contradictions in which we say we're all one but continue to try to win. -Neale Donald Walsch

So high do these plants stand in the favour of the Chinese gardener, that he will cultivate them extensively, even against the wishes of his employer; and, in many instances, rather leave his situation than give up the growth of his favourite flower. -Robert Fortune

Sometimes, as is the case of peach and plum trees, which are often dwarfed, the plants are thrown into a flowering states, and then, as they flower freely year after year, they have little inclination to make vigorous growth. -Robert Fortune

The plants are principally kept in large pots arranged in rows along the sides of narrow paved walks, with the houses of the gardeners at the entrance through which the visitors pass to the gardens. -Robert Fortune

The plants which stand next to dwarf trees in importance with the Chinese are certainly chrysanthemums, which they manage extremely well, perhaps better than they do any other plant. -Robert Fortune

We are told that the first part of the process is to select the very smallest seeds from the smallest plants, which is not at all unlikely, but I cannot speak to the fact from my own observation. -Robert Fortune

When these suckers had formed roots in the open ground, or kind of nursery where they were planted, they were looked over and the best taken up for potting. -Robert Fortune

We ought not to be looking for something spectacular but rather develop a plan in conjunction with the White House to work our way out of this problem over the next six weeks. -Robert Teeter

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

The President, the Administration and the campaign need a theme. I am concerned that the President is seen as a tactician without an overall strategy of his plan for the country. -Robert Teeter

I think we are in the midst of this period where we are committing this suicide on the planet and everybody is just using up all of our natural resources like a bunch of insane people. That's what I worry about more than I worry about jazz. -Sonny Rollins

I miss playing with Miles. I did play with him a little while before he left the planet, but even at that time I longed to maybe do some things together. -Sonny Rollins

I think that show will go down in history… people will scratch their heads and say 'How did this ever get on the air?' I mean, they finally have a planet that's populated with a black race and then they present them as savage warriors, and the men want the white girl! -Denise Crosby

Initially, I had two thoughts. First, this is a very large conspiracy; and second, our children in Washington. We knew there were a few unidentified planes that may have been headed for the White House or the Capitol Building. -Mercer Reynolds

If we ever start communicating with living creatures from other planets, the number one priority is, how are you going to communicate information? Even between different cultures here on Earth, you get into communication problems. -Story Musgrave

I immediately called the command center of the Department of Justice to let them know that my wife was on a plane that had been hijacked. I mainly wanted them know there was another hijacked plane out there. -Ted Olson

She said it had been hijacked shortly after takeoff. By this time, the plane had been in the air – again, I'm presuming that it took off on time – for over an hour. -Ted Olson

I wanted it not to be true. I wanted it not to be her plane. I wanted it – I wanted, if it was her plane, to have somehow survived because she was in the back of the airplane. But we know that doesn't happen, not with those sorts of things. -Ted Olson

My wife had taken off on a plane. Two airplanes had crashed into the World Trade Center. I, of course, like any other person, felt potentially devastated, panicky a little bit. -Ted Olson

The plane took off at 8:10 in the morning – or that's when it was scheduled to take off. And that's when I believe it took off. I had been in my office at the Department of Justice. Someone told me that there had been the two strikes that occurred at the World Trade Center. -Ted Olson

Is it philosophical, is it quite allowable, to assume without evidence from fossil plants that the family or any of the genera was once larger and wide spread? and occupied a continuous area? -Asa Gray

It was always understood that plants and animals, though completely contrasted in their higher representatives, approached each other very closely in their lower and simpler forms. But they were believed not to blend. -Asa Gray

It was implicitly supposed that every living thing was distinctively plant or animal; that there were real and profound differences between the two, if only they could be seized. -Asa Gray

The best opinion now is, that there are multitudinous forms which are not sufficiently differentiated to be distinctively either plant or animal, while, as respects ordinary plants and animals, the difficulty of laying down a definition has become far greater than ever before. -Asa Gray

Many years ago it was taught that plants and animals were composed of different materials: plants, of a chemical substance of three elements,- carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen; animals of one of four elements, nitrogen being added to the other three. -Asa Gray

But it was soon ascertained that this quaternary matter of the animal body was chemically the same in the plant, was elaborated there, and only appropriated by the animal. -Asa Gray

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

We have spoken of beings so low in the scale that the individuals throughout their whole existence are not sufficiently specialized to be distinctively plant or animal: yet these are definite life in simpler shape. -Asa Gray

With the permanent elimination of this tax, farmers and business owners will have the sense of security they need to plan for the financial future of their business or farm and their family. -Doc Hastings

I could not finish the rest of the tours the band had planned. I was replaced by Matt Cameron. The next years of my life were about recovery, healing, and right living. I never lost the need to create. -Jack Irons

It's hard to tell whether the ship or airplane – they're all the same, I'm convinced – is male or female; it may shift back and forth. -John C. Hawkes

Punishing abuse in Iraq should not return the U.S. to Sept. 10, 2001, in the way it fights al Qaeda, while Osama bin Laden and his top lieutenants remain at large and continue to plan attacks. -John Yoo

I had to start being aware of what I ate, what I'm planning to eat and take my twice-daily medication accordingly. That's not so difficult now, but when you're 10 years old, it's tough, let me tell you. -Dana Hill

They plan to ride into the White House on the Sweet Talk Express. Well, think again. Bush and Cheney are not compassionate conservatives. They are ruthless reactionaries. -Patricia Ireland

During the many centuries that magic, here on this planet, was presumed to have worked, there were at least as many theories as to how magic worked as there were cultures and religions. -Lynn Abbey

Buddy Rich was one of the most incredible technicians in the world, on this planet, but the only people he could really impress, who knew what he was doing was another musician or another drummer. -Dick Dale

My dad served in two wars has been flying airplanes for 60 years now. He was certainly quite an inspiration. -John L. Phillips

I'm doing it with a rock format and the words are about people living in harmony with Mother Earth. It's very important to me – and I feel it should be for every living human on this planet. -Jimmy Carl Black

And then when I went to Chicago, that's when I had these outer space experiences and went to the other planets. -Sun Ra

The world is in such a bad condition that if they don't find what you call a redeemer, every man, woman and child on this planet will be eliminated. -Sun Ra

A world is in danger, this planet is in great danger! -Sun Ra

We must do more to protect our neighborhoods and give integrity to our community plans. -Alan Autry

While it is true that we must seek value added industries like food processing plants and call center operations, we must do what is necessary to expand and develop our economic profile. -Alan Autry

I am not disposed to complain that I have planted and others have gathered the fruits. -Charles Goodyear

I never have planned a whole lot of future. It's one day at a time. -Darrell Royal

I do remember smiling quite a bit inside it though since I knew it wouldn't be seen on film – so of course while the poor planet is being blown up I'm smiling and laughing like mad! -David Prowse

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

The guy who owned that island was from Oregon and he decided that he wanted to have an Oregon feeling to it, so he planted pine trees all over the place! -Christopher Atkins

I truly, truly believe that I was going in that direction and all of a sudden fate took me and put me here. It's like something else has other plans for me. -Christopher Atkins

But I was also doing odd jobs around Portland, like spreading gravel and transplanting bamboo trees. -Elliott Smith

The point of my explanation is I'm very subjective when it comes to describing my characters: they are all a little bit a part of me from the outside in or the inside out – but to put your mind at ease, I built Paul Snider from the outside in. -Eric Roberts

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

Regardless of how me or this man right here or anybody else in this business get, when we walk on an airplane in first-class looking like this, we're gonna get searched. -Method Man

The solution is to first create an integrated economic development and recreation plan that addresses the needs of the people who live and recreate in central Idaho. -Mike Simpson

As the Pentagon makes plans for the largest troop rotation since World War II, I will work with the Armed Services Committee to help make this proposal a reality. -Mike Rogers

Of course the case of the Christian Church planted among the nations must differ, in various ways, from that of any sect forming in connection with religious awakening in a territory of professing Christianity. -Robert Rainy

I don't have a special place or ritual for writing songs, basically I write songs whenever an idea hits me, in my hotel room, on the road, in the plane. -Kelly Jones

I went to the University of Washington as a physics and astronomy major. My other interest, of course, was aviation. I always wanted to be a pilot. And if you're going to fly airplanes, the best place to be is the Air Force. -Michael P. Anderson

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

I have learned how to plant coastal hay, fertilize and bale it. -Janine Turner

Wealthy men, too, like several of those in our neighborhood, had so many slaves that they were compelled to buy other plantations on which to employ them. -John Sergeant Wise

This and many others only confirmed me in the opinion, planted when I saw the sale of Martha Ann, and growing steadily thereafter, that slavery was an accursed business, and that the sooner my people were relieved of it, the better. -John Sergeant Wise

After the loss of Columbia a couple of years ago, I think we were reminded of the risk. All of us, though, have always known that the Space Shuttle is a very risky vehicle, much more risky than even flying airplanes in combat. -Mark Kelly

I've never been able to plan my life. I just lurch from indecision to indecision. -Alan Rickman

Nothing gives me as much pleasure as travelling. I love getting on trains and boats and planes. -Alan Rickman

When I get off the plane in England I always feel about two inches shorter. -Alan Rickman

I wish I knew what was next. I got this movie without planning to. I'm really excited to be continuing in film because it's a great job but I have my portfolio and resume for any other opportunity. -Colleen Haskell

Ten-year plan? No, three-year plan! I'm in a hurry. -Josh Schwartz

It's really a good feeling to know that we put this up there, that it's working, that all these people's plans that worked so hard came together and things fit and we've got a real space station. -Linda M. Godwin

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

If there's any business that instructs you in the strong hand of fate, it's show business. You can plan and plan, but it's what happens to you that really determines what your career will be like. -Sam Waterston

When people ask me what I do, strangers on a plane, perhaps, I tell them that I think. Thinking is excellent exercise, as much as swimming or jogging. -Tom Glazer

I've never looked ahead very much in my life. I've never had any grand plan from the outset. I had no burning ambition to do what I do. -Tracey Ullman

Whenever I wasn't watching the planes, I was playing community baseball, football, or something like that. -Bo Jackson

I didn't really have a plan of attack when I got in college. -Carrot Top

Painting does what we cannot do – it brings a three-dimensional world into a two-dimensional plane. -Chuck Jones

It's just really hard to work and get better, building and planning for the future with the new Monte Carlo and keeping the race team intact and keeping them healthy. -Dale Earnhardt

I hope the Guggenheim plan will be revived. -David Rockefeller

The attacks on the World Trade Center and the current economic recession, which is particularly powerful in New York City, have put a number of building plans on hold for the time being. -David Rockefeller

Clearly, if we'd had the kind of computer graphics capability then that we have now, the Star Gate sequence would be much more complex than flat planes of light and color. -Douglas Trumbull

It was the point where things became much more abstract and less literal than in the bulk of the film, which was hardcore rockets and space and planets – all a fairly straightforward evolution from what I had been doing before. -Douglas Trumbull

We're not that far from being able to plant images, memories, and emotional states directly into the brain. -Douglas Trumbull

Amongst the minds of animals that of man leads, not as a demigod from another planet, but as a king from the same race. -Edward Thorndike

Some people think that our planet is suffering from a fever. Now scientists are telling us that Mars is experiencing its own planetary warming: Martian warming. This has led some people, not necessarily scientists, to wonder if Mars and Jupiter, non signatories to the Kyoto Treaty, are actually inhabited by alien SUV-driving industrialists. -Fred Thompson

Taught to regard a part of our own Species in the most abject and contemptible Degree below us, we lose that Idea of the dignity of Man which the Hand of Nature had implanted in us, for great and useful purposes. -George Mason

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

I don't think we're going to save anything if we go around talking about saving plants and animals only; we've got to translate that into what's in it for us. -Jim Fowler

My father being an outdoors person, he used to take us on quite a few adventures thorugh the wild areas down there, introducing us to alligators and rattlesnakes and all the trees and plants. -Jim Fowler

Somali is turning into a desert. Rwanda, you can hardly find a place to plant a potato, it's so crowded. -Jim Fowler

Low-income seniors who choose to enroll in a drug discount plan will receive $600 of Federal assistance in 2004 and 2005 to further defray the costs of their medications. -Jim Gerlach

This election is a critical step in that overall plan – transforming the Iraqi government into a fully constitutional one, able to secure its own borders and ensure the safety of its citizens. -John M. McHugh

I was planning on my future as a homeless person. I had a really good spot picked out. -Larry David

Half of all women who are sexually active, but do not want to get pregnant, need publicly funded services to help them access public health programs like Medicaid and Title X, the national family planning program. -Louise Slaughter

Most of us start out with a positive attitude and a plan to do our best. -Marilu Henner

Science is not a game in which arbitrary rules are used to decide what explanations are to be permitted. -Michael Behe

But I know God has big stuff planned that ultimately doesn't have anything to do with me. -Michael W. Smith

But myth is something else than an explanation of the world, of history, and of destiny. -Paul Ricoeur

My mother is an office manager, my father a professor of economics and financial planner. -Poppy Z. Brite

Ali and I have become friends over the years. I was on a plane with him one time when he was the champion. -Robert Goulet

It doesn't always happen according to the way you have planned things out but I feel if you have covered most of the aspects, it does help out there in the middle. -Sachin Tendulkar

I never could have planned this, and now I'm in my ideal situation career-wise and just sort of where I am in my life, and I'm super happy with how everything's going. -Shawn Ashmore

If I don't get paid I'm going to take a whole lot of Marshall amps home with me on the plane. -Tommy Chong

Yet, it ought to be obvious that good music generally occupies a higher plane that mere politics. Great writers can express moods through melody and capture experiences we share most powerfully – love, lust, longing; joy, rage, fear; triumph, yearning and confusion. -Tony Snow

There's never been any game plan or thread through my career. It's just happened that I've ricocheted from one interesting character to another. -Derek Jacobi

The more I read, to me the more incredible everything is. Based on what I've read, there are all these other dimensional planes and spaces, mathematically proven. -Dwight Schultz

I don't think it's too late for 'The War of the Worlds' to come true. I'm talking about it from the standpoint that which you need to have and own things – to breed, to think, to create – is going on everywhere, not just on this planet or in the space around it. -Dwight Schultz

The producers who wanted me to do it liked me and trusted me, and more than one scene was only one take, because I'd plan ahead what I thought would be appropriate for that scene-so one take was enough. -Fay Wray

I don't think that was too successful. Because I always thought that the two of them should have been more separate. Also I had planned the monorail station to be in the center. So that one day you would have go to World Showcase and then the other day to Future World. -John Hench

We haven't played that many of them because all our gear was over here waiting for us when we could get here. So we didn't get to rehearse any of the new stuff, so we have planned to play 3 or 4 new ones. -Kerry King

Check bags are fun. I just make sure there won't be anything illegal in my check bag which is forbidden at a cabin of a plane. Just leaving things like scissors and such out of my carry-on things in order to avoid troubles with some certain airline, y'know. -Kerry King

When I'm ready, I plan to adopt. I still believe in family. -LaToya Jackson

Failure is nature's plan to prepare you for great responsibilities. -Napoleon Hill

We need to think on a broader plane, we need to do more than we're doing. -Siobhan Davies

The key to any successful plan is buy-in from the public, and what this process has demonstrated is the importance of including citizens in formulating a consensus plan that preserves our beautiful refuge. -Ron Kind

My background is in physics, so I was the mission specialist, who is sort of like the flight engineer on an airplane. -Sally Ride

So I saw many planets, and they looked just a little bit brighter than they do from Earth. -Sally Ride

The current institutionally provided retirement plans will not cover people's needs upon retirement. -Scott Cook

People don't place their trust in government or company pension plans; they have to be self-reliant. -Scott Cook

My plan was to stay in Canada to make films. -Ted Kotcheff

On the other hand, I still approach each book with the same basic plan in mind – to put some people under severe stress and see how they hold up. -Terry Brooks

When I read Copland, I really wanted Stallone's part. -Ray Liotta

Every person should have their escape route planned. I think everyone has an apocalypse fantasy, what would I do in the event of the end of the world, and we just basically – me and Nick – said what would we do, where would we head? -Simon Pegg

He put in your heart certain wishes and plans; in my heart, he put other different desires. -Sitting Bull

There's some new evidence that has just come out about the CIA planning terrorist attacks on U.S. soil in the '60s and how they were going to set up Castro for it in order to get America behind a war in Cuba. -Aaron McGruder

The NBA wasn't a big deal at that time, so it wasn't really in my career plans. -Bob Cousy

Aaron Copland was a man that had a very specific point of view about what music should be which was that, he felt that new music should have the composer should show a personality in his music. -Elliott Carter

I'm planning a different show, though for obvious reasons some of the material will be the same, and of course I will perform material from the new CD. -George Duke

People who live through transplants or disasters like Sept. 11 are survivors. -Geraldine Ferraro

We were so shocked by how fast that war went that President Bush did not have a plan, a peace plan. -Geraldine Ferraro

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

It is God's planet – and he's taking care of it. And I don't believe that anything we do will raise or lower the temperature one point. -Jerry Falwell

The agreement to place the binational planning group at our new Northern Command was also signed in December. -Paul Cellucci

This war in Iraq is part of a larger effort to remove this terrorist threat from the planet. -Paul Cellucci

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

I travel Europe every couple of weeks. I just came back from London, Holland and Denmark. Every nation on this planet has its issues with race, and I am not sure if everyone has figured out how to deal with it. -Montel Williams

If you take one rivet out of an airplane, it will be all right, it'll keep flying. You take another rivet out of the airplane and it still flies. So what the heck, let's take more rivets out of the airplane, and sooner or later, the airplane drops from the sky. -Ted Danson

We are so arrogant, we forget that we are not the reason for evolution, we are not the point of evolution. We are part of evolution. Unfortunately, we believe that we've been created to dominate the planet, to dominate nature. Ain't true. -Ted Danson

The planet will survive. Whether we get to be here and enjoy it, or enjoy life as we've known it, is what's questionable. -Ted Danson

I don't know where my songs come from… If I knew, I'd know too much, more than we are allowed on this plane. -Judy Collins

The word survivor suggests someone who has emerged alive from a plane crash or a natural disaster. But the word can also refer to the loved ones of murder victims, and this was the sense in which it was used at a four-day conference in early June at Boston College. -Godfried Danneels

They never were planning to be here. All my family are going to London because they wanted to go to the big one. There was never any showdown – there wouldn't be. -Charlotte Church

I used to think about how nice it would be to visit the planets. Of course, I didn't expect to see in my lifetime what has happened. I knew it would happen some day, but it came along faster than I at first thought. -Clyde Tombaugh

The planets are never the same twice, they're always different, so they could compare the markings I had drawn with their current photographs and they knew that I was drawing what I was really seeing and it wasn't copied from somewhere. -Clyde Tombaugh

I think there's a supreme power behind the whole thing, an intelligence. Look at all of the instincts of nature, both animals and plants, the very ingenious ways they survive. If you cut yourself, you don't have to think about it. -Clyde Tombaugh

Nine g's is good, if the pilot can stand it. We couldn't stand it. Not in the airplanes of World War II. -Adolf Galland

When I was planning Family Viewing, the Ontario Film Development Corporation came into existence. -Atom Egoyan

So it was flawed in that it didn't require California to have a first claim on the power plants. It deregulated part of the market, but not all of the market. -Gray Davis

We started focusing on this in earnest late summer and early fall. I can build more power plants. In the 12 years before us, not a single plant of major consequence was built. -Gray Davis

Why? Because we're very well down this process as it is – flawed as it is – and we're counting on getting more power plants on line by the end of 2003 so we have a surplus of power. -Gray Davis

I'm doing my part, building plants at a record rate, having historic conservation levels. The only people not doing their part is the federal government that is siding with the energy companies against the interests of the people of California. -Gray Davis

We must have more union members in this country to fight the political and business forces that are undermining workers in this country. The AFL-CIO has chosen the opposite approach by planning to throw even more money at politicians. -James P. Hoffa

We're given the springboard of the text, a plane ticket, told to report to Alabama, and there's a group of people all ready to make a film and it's a marvelous life. -Albert Finney

Just this week, my husband proposed a plan for schools and libraries to develop their own plans to keep children from finding indecent material on the Internet as an alternative to a Congressional proposal that would require a federally mandated solution. -Tipper Gore

So if you're a robot and you're living on this planet, you can do things that you can't do in real life – things that you wished you could do: like fly; like have a car that flies; like have furniture that is alive. -William Joyce

Their toys are alive and can sometimes come to their aid, or get lost and Olie has to find them. They go to other planets. They go to the ice cream planet. -William Joyce

I plant a lot of trees. I am a great believer in planting things for future generations. I loathe the now culture where you just live for today. -Penelope Keith

We live in downtown Manhattan and we have pretty big windows that looked right at the World Trade Center. I was home along with Kai and we watched it all happen. I was holding him in my arms and we were looking out the window when the second plane hit. -Jennifer Connelly

My father was always very interested in space. I watch Star Trek and all those things, but I always had a different picture in my mind… maybe closer to Alien. I don't see it in space as much as I do see it in different planets, with each having its own strange characters. -Sigourney Weaver

With Alien, because we always use a different director, each one kind of stands on its own. So I guess it's possible for them to make another one, but we have no plans. -Sigourney Weaver

My husband is from Hawaii and his father who was also born in Hawaii was a teenager when Pearl Harbor happened, right before church and he ran up and got on the roof of his grandfather's house and watched the planes go over. -Sigourney Weaver

I never wanted to leave the Smashing Pumpkins. That was never the plan. -Billy Corgan

Saturn Return is just the return of your planets to their original position. -Billy Corgan

We still live with this unbelievable threat over our heads of nuclear war. I mean, are we stupid? Do we think that the nuclear threat has gone, that the nuclear destruction of the planet is not imminent? It's a delusion to think it's gone away. -Kevin Costner

Don't think you are going to go on forever because you are not and begin to plan something that will compensate as you reduce your capacities to leap or turn on this or that or the other, begin thinking of something else. -Katherine Dunham

If we should be blessed by some great reward, such as fame or fortune, it's the fruit of a seed planted by us in the past. -Bodhidharma

And the Buddha is the person who's free: free of plans, free of cares. -Bodhidharma

The President's proposed privatization plan would jeopardize that security by cutting guaranteed benefits for future retirees and endangering the benefits of current retirees, people with disabilities, and children who have lost a parent. -Chaka Fattah

For far too long, America has been without a comprehensive energy plan, and today consumers are paying the price – literally – at the pump and in their heating bills. -Chris Chocola

Prior to the PATRIOT Act, the ability of government agencies to share information with each other was limited, which kept investigators from fully understanding what terrorists might be planning and to prevent their attacks. -Chris Chocola

I did not plan to make the Cube. -Erno Rubik

Now, after the Cube, I still don't have any plans to make anything like it. -Erno Rubik

Everything in the Universe, throughout all its kingdoms, is conscious: i.e., endowed with a consciousness of its own kind and on its own plane of perception. -Helena Blavatsky

I feel however, that we architects have a special duty and mission… (to contribute) to the socio-cultural development of architecture and urban planning. -Kenzo Tange

But when you are embodied in a location, in a physical plant, in a set of people, and in a common history, that constrains your evolution and your ability to evolve in certain directions. -Kevin Kelly

Under the Bush plan, Social Security gets weaker, not stronger. -Richard Neal

In the Belgian air force a general supposedly saw a UFO, tracked it with his plane, photographed it with his wing cameras. And I believe it because I said to myself why would this person, not getting paid for this, do it unless it actually happened or he thought it happened. -Robert Stack

However, the Administration's plan to privatize Social Security will undermine retirement security for all Americans by cutting guaranteed benefits by more than 40 percent, and risky private accounts won't make up for the loss of benefits for millions of Americans. -Ruben Hinojosa

The privatization plan weakens Social Security and threatens our economic security by creating trillions of dollars in new debt. -Ruben Hinojosa

Any sensible family has a budget that lays out how much will be spent for household and other purposes. Without such planning, things would quickly go awry. -Walter Ulbricht

Something new has happened: For the first time in German history our fatherland is guided by a plan that considers only the needs of the people, and aims at building prosperity and reconstructing of our fatherland. -Walter Ulbricht

I took lots of photographs and had planned to write a treatise on how it worked, but I quickly got bored with that idea and wrote a scientific fairy tale instead. -Kit Williams

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

I think differently, I think it's about reaching everybody on every different plane and every different level, and if I could remix the song and do a dance remix, that's great. If I could do a classical version, that'll be great too. It's all just about expression. -Deborah Cox

I took a plane from New York City to Los Angeles for an audition. I met all the people. After that, I was told to have another audition, but I didn't want to go there again. -Ed O'Neill

I remembered seeing it and it was this metallic turbine and I thought it was beautiful. I had never been in a power plant before, but I felt, without being overly dramatic, compelled to make photographs of this for myself. -John Sexton

One of the workshop participants had shown me a single 8 X 10 photograph of a power plant where he actually was the general manager of this power cooperative. It was quite magical to me. -John Sexton

I see humanity now as one vast plant, needing for its highest fulfillment only love, the natural blessings of the great outdoors, and intelligent crossing and selection. -Luther Burbank

In the span of my own lifetime I observed such wondrous progress in plant evolution that I look forward optimistically to a healthy, happy world as soon as its children are taught the principles of simple and rational living. -Luther Burbank

The secret of improved plant breeding, apart from scientific knowledge, is love. -Luther Burbank

I figured if the plane goes down, I'll go with a great genius and will always have my name connected with his. -Matthew Sweet

The summer of 2002 at the Wilson birthday party I met Van Dyke again and I made plans to have dinner with him. -Matthew Sweet

All the things that human beings suffer from are how their environment treats them, and how the elements of their planet affects their mind and body – like radiation, cancer, and all. -Ornette Coleman

If you look at the 19 hijackers who came to the United States in Sept. 11 to commit those acts, if you'd looked at them before they got onto a plane, you could probably say the same thing. There were various levels of expertise, various levels of competence. -Robert Mueller

In planning an attack, persons have various roles. -Robert Mueller

Before marriage, many couples are very much like people rushing to catch an airplane; once aboard, they turn into passengers. They just sit there. -J. Paul Getty

I support the indigenous people anywhere in the planet. -Edward James Olmos

Chiapas is probably the main concern I have right now for the planet. -Edward James Olmos

Science Fiction is not just about the future of space ships travelling to other planets, it is fiction based on science and I am using science as my basis for my fiction, but it's the science of prehistory – palaeontology and archaeology – rather than astronomy or physics. -Jean M. Auel

I couldn't begin to name names… in general I have found racers to be some of the most competitive people on the planet… and some of the nicest as well. -John Oates

A lot of the money in the stock market is really our national retirement plan, for better or worse. -Ron Chernow

The founding fathers were not only brilliant, they were system builders and systematic thinkers. They came up with comprehensive plans and visions. -Ron Chernow

For the Gulf States, perhaps no forage crop of which the available seed supply is relatively abundant exceeds the velvet bean in potential value. This legume possesses also the ability to make a crop when planted relatively late. -David F. Houston

The soy-bean, in particular, has proved sufficiently resistant to cold in spring and to adverse weather during summer to warrant heavy planting, especially throughout the South. -David F. Houston

Its success lies in the fact that it's an insurance plan, not an investment plan or a welfare plan. -James Roosevelt

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

Only the last two planes, I think, had any shot of being intercepted and taken down on 9/11. -Richard Ben-Veniste

So we knew their intentions were to strike in the United States. We also knew from other sources of dozens of examples of where the notion of using planes as weapons was discussed. -Richard Ben-Veniste

Man is the result of a purposeless and materialistic process that did not have him in mind. He was not planned. -George Gaylord Simpson

I plan on staying at Alabama for the rest of my career. I guarantee that I'll be here for you through it all, regardless of what happens. -Bear Bryant

I, in fact, have been involved in the construction of and the management of wastewater treatment plants. -Jeff Miller
