103432. I like to make great albums. – Shelby Lynne

103458. A theoretical grounding in agronomy must, therefore, include knowledge of biological laws. – Trofim Lysenko

103459. Darwin himself, in his day, was unable to fight free of the theoretical errors of which he was guilty. It was the classics of Marxism that revealed those errors and pointed them out. – Trofim Lysenko

103466. Darwin investigated the numerous facts obtained by naturalists in living nature and analysed them through the prism of practical experience. – Trofim Lysenko

103467. In essence, the science of agronomy is inseparable from biology. – Trofim Lysenko

103470. Progressively thinking biologists, both in our country and abroad, saw in Darwinism the only right road to the further development of scientific biology. – Trofim Lysenko

103471. In the present epoch of struggle between two worlds the two opposing and antagonistic trends penetrating the foundations of nearly all branches of biology are particularly sharply defined. – Trofim Lysenko

103472. For me, it’s a bigger challenge, it’s much harder to do and much more rewarding to do well, then just to think up stuff of your own, hit or miss, because you’ve got to see to it that you don’t torpedo any of his punch lines. – Humphrey Lyttelton

103474. The secret of it is to read what you’ve got in front of you. Don’t, if you suspect that something has a double meaning, don’t pause. Don’t put on a leery vocal expression if you know what I mean on radio. Don’t sort of do anything other than read it. – Humphrey Lyttelton

103475. It is a very wide range of people that we get for the show. – Humphrey Lyttelton

103478. I did the pilot, and when they came through and said they were going to put it on the air, I had already some dates in the book with my band and so on. So Barry did the first one, he may have done a few more than the first one in the series, and I took it up from then. – Humphrey Lyttelton

103487. I’m not likely to forget where I’ve been and what I’ve done and learned. I think it’s just as important to play new instruments as to play new pieces. The old ones are getting scarcer and the new ones more and more wonderful. – Yo-Yo Ma

103488. Good things happen when you meet strangers. – Yo-Yo Ma

103489. It took me way beyond what I knew, into places of which I was totally scared, but as I became less frightened, I welcomed new ways of thinking and approaching something. It made me an infinitely richer person, and I think a better musician. – Yo-Yo Ma

103490. Music has always been transnational; people pick up whatever interests them, and certainly a lot of classical music has absorbed influences from all over the world. – Yo-Yo Ma

103491. One is that you have to take time, lots of time, to let an idea grow from within. The second is that when you sign on to something, there will be issues of trust, deep trust, the way the members of a string quartet have to trust one another. – Yo-Yo Ma

103492. One of the most interesting aspects of the film project was collaborating with so many people – directors, filmmakers, and writers – over a five-year period. I learned that there are two components to this. – Yo-Yo Ma

103493. The role of the musician is to go from concept to full execution. Put another way, it’s to go from understanding the content of something to really learning how to communicate it and make sure it’s well-received and lives in somebody else. – Yo-Yo Ma

103494. The tango is really a combination of many cultures, though it eventually became the national music of Argentina. – Yo-Yo Ma

103495. Things can fall apart, or threaten to, for many reasons, and then there’s got to be a leap of faith. Ultimately, when you’re at the edge, you have to go forward or backward; if you go forward, you have to jump together. – Yo-Yo Ma

103496. We may be coming to a new golden age of instrument making. – Yo-Yo Ma

103497. I’ve been traveling all over the world for 25 years, performing, talking to people, studying their cultures and musical instruments, and I always come away with more questions in my head than can be answered. – Yo-Yo Ma

103508. We are very fond of blaming the poor for destroying the environment. But often it is the powerful, including governments, that are responsible. – Wangari Maathai

103509. I think I infuse the music with a new passion. Part of this is because I have fallen in love: I am in love with the New York Philharmonic. The chemistry has just been right. Beyond expectation. – Lorin Maazel

103636. I think the long-term effect of video on cinema is good in that what we are now getting up there on the screen is of superior quality. Videos are just so much more sensitive to the world. – Ann Macbeth

103637. You have always had individual directors who begin in the advertising or commercial world, but they are probably exceptions rather than the traditional pattern. – Ann Macbeth

103638. All the arts are predominantly national, and therefore the Australian Film Commission should be funding us. The battle gets more and more vicious each year. – Ann Macbeth

103640. Build into each budget the cost of hiring and don’t lump yourself with capital investment. – Ann Macbeth

103641. I see any production of any nature being good for the development of the whole industry. – Ann Macbeth

103642. In 1975 Australia was producing things like Picnic at Hanging Rock, in other words films that I would consider still some of the finest products to come out of Australia. I think that our quality now is less than it was then. – Ann Macbeth

103643. It will never be Hollywood, the same way people think it should be. I think it will grow and it will be healthy and it will expand into more than one production house. – Ann Macbeth

103644. Most independent filmmakers in Britain and North America work for commercial crews and then have their own projects when they’ve got enough money saved up to do so. – Ann Macbeth

103646. The British needlewoman follows blindly where the merchant leads. – Ann Macbeth

103647. We discovered that there was a great deal of keen interest in America for the kinds of products that we thought could be produced here. Also there was an interest in Britain for Australian material generally. – Ann Macbeth

103649. Film is the most expensive, highest risk industry in the world. – Ann Macbeth

103650. We probably do not have a large enough industry here to ably support the independent filmmaker to move in and out. Much of the industry is based on full-time jobs here, institutionalised jobs. – Ann Macbeth

103652. We are the only state that does not have a State Film Corporation there to support the commercial industry. – Ann Macbeth

103653. We are not yet at the point where our size, our being the drama industry, is sufficient to support full time professional crews, and that is very very important. – Ann Macbeth

103654. We are here predominantly to support independent filmmakers and their needs. We are also here to assist people actually in their production, non-commercial people in their production. – Ann Macbeth

103655. Video just accesses international information so much more readily. – Ann Macbeth

103656. They will open up to what I would call corporate broadcastings where the non-commercial material will have air time. There’s no possibility of that here right now, none. – Ann Macbeth

103657. The existing documentary makers still believe that it is impossible to produce drama material in this State, otherwise they would be doing it, they say. – Ann Macbeth

103658. The worst thing that you can do in terms of bringing a product up to the market is to be two days after someone else has brought a similar product to the international market-It’s dead. – Ann Macbeth

103659. The tensions are always based on financial resources. Something like film is very problematic because it is viewed as an art form and also as an industry with a pure commercial base. – Ann Macbeth

103660. The State Film Authority will be there for film as industry only, as is the case in all the other states, except Victoria. Victoria is moving more now into supporting non-commercial films. – Ann Macbeth

103661. The more commercial work that is happening, the more people are operating cameras and are setting up studio lights, the greater the opportunity for drama production to happen. – Ann Macbeth

103662. It’s like breathing in and out to me. It’s like having a conversation with someone who isn’t there. Because it has to be addressed to somebody – not a particular person, or very rarely. – Norman MacCaig

103663. I only keep books that I like very much. Otherwise I’d throw them out. – Norman MacCaig

103668. I’m very gregarious, but I love being in the hills on my own. – Norman MacCaig

103669. Well, I love fishing. I wouldn’t kill a fly myself but I’ve no hesitation in killing a fish. A lot of men are like that. No bother. Out you come. Thump. And that’s not the only reason. – Norman MacCaig

103670. In fact a lot of them I think are absolute baloney. Those Charles Olsens and people like that. At first I was interested in seeing what they were up to, what they were doing, why they were doing it. They never moved me in the way that one is moved by true poetry. – Norman MacCaig

103671. I never think about poetry except when I’m writing it. I mean my poetry. – Norman MacCaig

103672. People haven’t got the interest in long long works these days. A lack of interest which I share. – Norman MacCaig

103673. There are some friends you don’t meet for twenty years and when you meet them again it’s as if no twenty years has happened – you’re lucky when that happens. I feel the same about books. – Norman MacCaig

103674. A terrible thing about getting oldish is that your friends start dying, and in the last ten years I have lost seven or eight of my closest. – Norman MacCaig

103675. If I wrote a play with four characters every single one of them would talk like me regardless of age or sex. – Norman MacCaig

103676. And the second question, can poetry be taught? I didn’t think so. – Norman MacCaig

103677. When I talk of hearing a poet’s voice speaking, I always think of it as in the presence of the man. – Norman MacCaig

103678. All I write about is what’s happened to me and to people I know, and the better I know them, the more likely they are to be written about. – Norman MacCaig

103679. When I go fishing I like to know that there’s nobody within five miles of me. – Norman MacCaig

103680. And if they haven’t got poetry in them, there’s nothing you can do that will produce it. – Norman MacCaig

103681. And in a way, that’s been a help to me, because I take great passions for a particular poet – sometimes it lasts for many years, sometimes only for a while. This happens to everybody. – Norman MacCaig

103682. All those authors there, most of whom of course I’ve never met. That’s the poetry side, that’s the prose side, that’s the fishing and miscellaneous behind me. You get an affection for books that you’ve enjoyed. – Norman MacCaig

103683. And some poets are far better read off the page because they’re very bad speakers. I’m thinking of one in particular whom I won’t name, a good poet, and he reads in such a dry, boring way, your eyes start drooping. – Norman MacCaig

103684. I find it’s impossible for me to read Proust. – Norman MacCaig

103685. Anybody who writes doesn’t like to be misunderstood. – Norman MacCaig

103686. But I hang on to books. I love them. I even think they’re very nice decor in a room – far better than paintings… That’s not quite true! – Norman MacCaig

103687. But you’d have a job to find many of my poems which would seem to be very influenced by a particular person. – Norman MacCaig

103688. However, I learned something. I thought that if the young person, the student, has poetry in him or her, to offer them help is like offering a propeller to a bird. – Norman MacCaig

103689. I don’t care whether a book is a first edition or not. I’m not a bibliophile in that word’s natural sense. – Norman MacCaig

103690. I don’t think of myself all the time. – Norman MacCaig

103691. And it’s impossible for me to read Henry James. – Norman MacCaig

103692. Well, I’m a light traveller. I chuck things away. – Norman MacCaig

103693. When I was asked to be Writer in Residence at Edinburgh I thought, you can’t teach poetry. This is ridiculous. – Norman MacCaig

103694. When I was a teacher, teachers would come into my classroom and admire my desk on which lay nothing whatever, whereas theirs were heaped with papers and books. – Norman MacCaig

103894. The wish to acquire more is admittedly a very natural and common thing; and when men succeed in this they are always praised rather than condemned. But when they lack the ability to do so and yet want to acquire more at all costs, they deserve condemnation for their mistakes. – Niccolo Machiavelli

103901. The first method for estimating the intelligence of a ruler is to look at the men he has around him. – Niccolo Machiavelli

103902. A wise ruler ought never to keep faith when by doing so it would be against his interests. – Niccolo Machiavelli

103903. Whosoever desires constant success must change his conduct with the times. – Niccolo Machiavelli

103904. A return to first principles in a republic is sometimes caused by the simple virtues of one man. His good example has such an influence that the good men strive to imitate him, and the wicked are ashamed to lead a life so contrary to his example. – Niccolo Machiavelli

103905. A prince never lacks legitimate reasons to break his promise. – Niccolo Machiavelli

103906. The fact is that a man who wants to act virtuously in every way necessarily comes to grief among so many who are not virtuous. – Niccolo Machiavelli

103907. As one of nine men, DiMaggio is the best player that ever lived. – Connie Mack

103908. I guess more players lick themselves that are ever licked by an opposing team. The first thing any man has to know is how to handle himself. – Connie Mack

103909. No matter what I talk about, I always get back to baseball. – Connie Mack

103910. The game has kept faith with the public, maintaining its old admission price for nearly thirty years while other forms of entertainment have doubled and tripled in price. And it will probably never change. – Connie Mack

103911. There has been only one manager, and his name is John McGraw. – Connie Mack

103912. You can’t win them all. – Connie Mack

103913. You’re born with two strikes against you, so don’t take a third one on your own. – Connie Mack

103914. Humanity is the keystone that holds nations and men together. When that collapses, the whole structure crumbles. This is as true of baseball teams as any other pursuit in life. – Connie Mack

103915. There is no such thing as death. In nature nothing dies. From each sad remnant of decay, some forms of life arise so shall his life be taken away before he knoweth that he hath it. – Charles Mackay

103916. War in men’s eyes shall be A monster of iniquity In the good time coming. Nations shall not quarrel then, To prove which is the stronger; Nor slaughter men for glory’s sake; – Wait a little longer. – Charles Mackay

103917. Money, again, has often been a cause of the delusion of the multitudes. Sober nations have all at once become desperate gamblers, and risked almost their existence upon the turn of a piece of paper. – Charles Mackay

103918. An arrow may fly through the air and leave no trace; but an ill thought leaves a trail like a serpent. – Charles Mackay

103919. If happy I and wretched he, Perhaps the king would change with me. – Charles Mackay

103920. He who has mingled in the fray of duty that the brave endure, must have made foes. If you have none, small is the work that you have done. – Charles Mackay

103921. Men, it has been well said, think in herds; it will be seen that they go mad in herds, while they only recover their senses slowly, and one by one. – Charles Mackay

103922. One reason we resist making deliberate choices is that choice equals change and most of us, feeling the world is unpredictable enough, try to minimise the trauma of change in our personal lives. – Hugh Mackay

103923. Parents should be encouraged to read to their children, and teachers should be equipped with all available techniques for teaching literacy, so the varying needs and capacities of individual kids can be taken into account. – Hugh Mackay

103924. Perhaps it’s the people whose lives have taken sudden new twists – people who have learned to embrace the creative possibilities of change – who stand the best chance of penetrating life’s mysteries. – Hugh Mackay

103925. Reading is a huge effort for many people, a bore for others, and, believe it or not, many people prefer watching TV. – Hugh Mackay

103926. Universal literacy was a 20th-century goal. Before then, reading and writing were skills largely confined to a small, highly educated class of professional people. – Hugh Mackay

103927. Recounting their histories, people often sound like interested bystanders to their own lives. – Hugh Mackay

103928. The question is, will we continue to fight what may be a rearguard action to defend universal literacy as a central goal of our education system, or are we bold enough to see what’s actually happening to our culture? – Hugh Mackay

103929. Some researchers sensibly suggest that rather than worrying too much about which programs our children are watching, we should concentrate on trying to reduce the total amount of time they spend in front of the screen. – Hugh Mackay

103930. Still, most of those effects occur in the context of harmless play and it is patently obvious that children are not normally turned into aggressive little monsters by TV or video games, since most children do not become aggressive little monsters. – Hugh Mackay

103931. The copycat effects of media violence, similar to those previously attributed to westerns, radio serials and comic books, are easy to exaggerate. – Hugh Mackay

103932. On average, Australians watch more than three hours of television a day, compared with 12 minutes a day spent by the average couple talking to each other. – Hugh Mackay

103933. I wish we didn’t have to own up to a policy deliberately designed to inflict suffering on people who have already been traumatised in the countries from which they’ve fled. – Hugh Mackay

103934. So, if falling crime rates coincide with the rise of violent video games and increasing violence on TV and at the cinema, should we conclude that media violence is causing the drop in crime rates? – Hugh Mackay

103935. Obviously, every child should be given the best possible opportunity to acquire literacy skills. – Hugh Mackay

103936. Nothing is perfect. Life is messy. Relationships are complex. Outcomes are uncertain. People are irrational. – Hugh Mackay

103937. No one welcomes chaos, but why crave stability and predictability? – Hugh Mackay

103938. It’s Australian to do such things because, however uncivilised they may seem, it’s human to do them. – Hugh Mackay

103939. It seems inevitable that the magic of the written word will fade. – Hugh Mackay

103940. Is it possible that literacy standards are falling because young Australians are growing up in a culture in which they can be entertained and informed, and in which they can communicate effectively, without having to master any but the most rudimentary literacy skills? – Hugh Mackay

103941. I’m in total sympathy with Dick Smith’s sentiments; I only wish there were grounds for saying we Australians would never tolerate such appalling treatment of refugees being carried out in our name. – Hugh Mackay

103942. I suspect the secret of personal attraction is locked up in our unique imperfections, flaws and frailties. – Hugh Mackay

103943. But the rule seems to be that the bigger and more life-changing the decision, the less it will seem like a decision at all. – Hugh Mackay

103944. Although we love the idea of choice – our culture almost worships it – we seek refuge in the familiar and the comfortable. – Hugh Mackay

103945. Actually, I can’t imagine anything more tedious than a perfect person, especially if it was someone who also demanded perfection from me. – Hugh Mackay

103946. A strangely reflective, even melancholy day. Is that because, unlike our cousins in the northern hemisphere, Easter is not associated with the energy and vitality of spring but with the more subdued spirit of autumn? – Hugh Mackay

103947. The underlying message of the Lancet article is that if you want to understand aggressive behaviour in children, look to the social and emotional environment in which they are growing up, and the values they bring to the viewing experience. – Hugh Mackay

103948. Indeed, in the present climate of mistrust of institutions, many people who yearn for a more meaningful and fulfilling life would regard the church as an unlikely place to go for guidance. – Hugh Mackay

103949. I want to make a summing up, brief and to the point, but thorough. I have never suppressed a word in my books out of regard for other people and their prejudices. – John Henry Mackay

103950. I want to lead the Progressive Conservative Party, a party that will promote true conservative values and principles. I can tell you right now, I am not the merger candidate. I am not interested in institutional marriages with other parties. – Peter MacKay

103951. If the United States leads a multinational force into Iraq without United Nations backing, Canada should fight beside its neighbour. We’ve gone from being a middle power to a muddle power on this one. – Peter MacKay

103952. It’s not as if our party has a leadership campaign underway. – Peter MacKay

103953. My gut tells me and continues to tell me that the Conservative party is on a road back to government. – Peter MacKay

103954. We have to be focused on growing the party and getting young people to see us as a viable option. – Peter MacKay

103955. We have to stress our conservative credentials and emphasize that we are the natural, national alternative to the Liberals. Clearly the Alliance has shown it can’t break out of its Western box. The Alliance is at single-digit support in three quarters of the country. – Peter MacKay

103956. What Canada has to do is to have a government connected to the priorities of the people of which it is elected to serve. Those priorities include ensuring medicare is sustainable, support for the military, and tax and justice systems that work. – Peter MacKay

103957. I guess my natural inclination is to finish what I started. We have a Conservative government in Nova Scotia. What I want to see is a Conservative government in Ottawa. – Peter MacKay

103958. Basically we just created our own label, but again we just did it to document our own music and create our own thing, so the major labels were just always out of our picture, we’re not interested. – Ian MacKaye

103959. Major labels didn’t start showing up really until they smelled money, and that’s all they’re ever going to be attracted to is money-that’s the business they’re in- making money. – Ian MacKaye

103960. Yeah, if someone’s selling downloads and collecting money for our songs I would be unhappy about that but if they’re trading it I don’t mind, obviously if I make a thousand records or CDs or whatever, I like to sell a thousand. – Ian MacKaye

103961. I am sure that in Canada the people appreciate this principle, and the general intelligence which prevails over that country is such that I am sure there is no danger of a reactionary policy ever finding a response in the hearts of any considerable number of our people. – Alexander Mackenzie

103962. We shall all respect the principles of each other and do nothing that would be regarded as an act of oppression to any portion of the people. – Alexander Mackenzie

103963. I have always held those political opinions which point to the universal brotherhood of man, no matter in what rank of life he may have taken his origin. – Alexander Mackenzie

103964. Logic, sometimes has very little to do with political action. – Alexander Mackenzie

103965. What postmodernism gives us instead is a multicultural defense for male violence – a defense for it wherever it is, which in effect is a pretty universal defense. – Catharine MacKinnon

103966. Can postmodernism hold the perpetrators of genocide accountable? – Catharine MacKinnon

103967. If you want to know who is being hurt in this society, go see what is being done and to whom in pornography and then go look for them other places in the world. – Catharine MacKinnon

103968. In a society in which equality is a fact, not merely a word, words of racial or sexual assault and humiliation will be nonsense syllables. – Catharine MacKinnon

103969. In not having an appointment at Harvard, I’m in the company of a great many people whose work I admire tremendously, in particular women of color. – Catharine MacKinnon

103970. Men who are in prison for rape think it’s the dumbest thing that ever happened… they were put in jail for something very little different from what most men do most of the time and call it sex. The only difference is they got caught. It may also be true. – Catharine MacKinnon

103971. Politically, I call it rape whenever a woman has sex and feels violated. – Catharine MacKinnon

103972. Postmodernism is an academic theory, originating in academia with an academic elite, not in the world of women and men, where feminist theory is rooted. – Catharine MacKinnon

103973. So the idea that there is nothing essential, in the sense that there are no human universals, is dogma. Ask most anyone who is going to be shot at dawn. – Catharine MacKinnon

103974. To be a prisoner means to be defined as a member of a group for whom the rules of what can be done to you, of what is seen as abuse of you, are reduced as part of the definition of your status. – Catharine MacKinnon

103975. It is right to be contented with what we have, never with what we are. – James Mackintosh

103976. Men are never so good or so bad as their opinions. – James Mackintosh

103977. Whatever is popular deserves attention. – James Mackintosh

103980. Good laws are the offspring of bad actions. – Charles Macklin

103981. I mean, they’re threatening – my career is over. You know, everything I’ve worked so hard. I’ve worked extremely hard since about 17 years old, you know, as a White House intern on up. – Andrea Mackris

103982. I’m supposed to say, Bill O’Reilly, that’s immoral – click – and then walk back in and book his A block the next day and have a fine day and everything be kosher? I don’t think so. – Andrea Mackris

103983. I was put in a position with a man that, whenever he would call me at work or at home, work-related, he would say jump and I’d say how high and I would jump. – Andrea Mackris

103984. We had an eyeball-to-eyeball agreement at a restaurant before I came back that, if I came back, he would never talk to me that way again or I was simply saying no. – Andrea Mackris

103985. I mean, that was a throwaway thought, because my focus was – my intent and my focus was to never go public. – Andrea Mackris

103986. I had said no to him and no to him and no to him and no to him and no to him and no to him about his saucy language. It had never gotten to this level until I came back. – Andrea Mackris

103987. I’m not used to saying no to this man on any level. – Andrea Mackris

103988. Lynch is not as strange as his films. He’s a complex guy with a very interesting view of the world. But he’s very accessible, with a good heart. – Kyle MacLachlan

103989. The Monmouth Coffee Shop is the best place in London. – Kyle MacLachlan

103990. The nice thing about New York is that you’re finally able to wear those winter clothes that have been sitting in your closet in mothballs. – Kyle MacLachlan

103991. The film world is a crazy place to be. You sit around all day waiting for the phone to ring. Are people talking about you or aren’t they? – Kyle MacLachlan

103992. The difference with doing a play is that you are in control. In film you are in the hands of the director and the editor and the producer. – Kyle MacLachlan

103993. My workout is my meditation. – Kyle MacLachlan

103994. I’ve done Graham Norton’s show three times now. He tackles taboos and subject matter that wouldn’t make it past the censors in the States. – Kyle MacLachlan

103995. I’d like to do more Shakespeare. I’d like to do Iago in Othello. I look so benign. It would be interesting to see that black evil come out of my soul. – Kyle MacLachlan

103996. I really fight for my privacy. – Kyle MacLachlan

103997. I get very caught up with things. I used to be dominated by domestic things. I had a lovely house in LA-and it became this growing, mad obsession. – Kyle MacLachlan

103998. Actors have an unusual perspective on clothing. You’ve really got to know the impact of what you’re wearing on the character you’re playing. – Kyle MacLachlan

103999. Hollywood is not good when it comes to age. – Kyle MacLachlan
