107742. I’d like to think Helen very much understood what it was to be disadvantaged in the medical field. And that that was something that she never let dictate her choices. – Mary Stuart Masterson

107743. I think she looked at Vivien the same way. Of course you can. You know. And, and yet with great respect, because she knew how hard it must have been. And that it was even harder for him, of course, than for her. – Mary Stuart Masterson

107768. What I never overcame is a kind of shyness. – Kurt Masur

107769. Very often, if I know the orchestra doesn’t know a piece or it’s a new piece, I have main ideas about it. But then we start to play and I never talk about places where they played so beautiful and so clear in the beginning that there is nothing to say. – Kurt Masur

107770. Sometimes if you have very confident people, you have to tell them please, be polite, there are other players are good enough as you and you should never speak out of an orchestra. – Kurt Masur

107771. In South America, I heard the 8th Symphony of Beethoven. And the young conductor thought, Beethoven must be heroic. But this is piece which shouldn’t be heroic. And this was such a misunderstanding, such a deep misunderstanding. – Kurt Masur

107772. If you go to Japan for instance, you should know that they have a different way of playing Beethoven or Brahms. But if you play with them Mozart, Debussy, Mendelssohn, they have a wonderful light feeling for that. – Kurt Masur

107773. I wouldn’t say I’ve changed my mind. I changed some of my natural habits, some of my natural character. – Kurt Masur

107774. I worked on scores. I went to the musical library in Berlin which is very famous. I discovered that we had scores of Beethoven, printed scores of Beethoven, that are full of mistakes. Not the wrong or false notes, but the wrong dynamic, understandable things. – Kurt Masur

107775. At the age of 16, something happened with my finger and the doctor told me, you never can be a organist or pianist, so think about what you do with music. – Kurt Masur

107776. The message of music was also the first thing what I learned from my first teacher. She was an organist too and she was very devoted to what she played, so she had a respect for every piece and she felt that she is not allowed to add something of her own. – Kurt Masur

107777. I was different from most young conductors today. – Kurt Masur

107778. And if you are strong enough, then you can grow as a conductor more and more. – Kurt Masur

107779. As I came to New York, it was for me a new beginning. To discover what people are living here. What do they need, what do they expect, what would they like to be the image and the performance of the New York Philharmonic? – Kurt Masur

107783. Even my family laughed at me because they thought this young guy who’s always stuttering in front of other people should be in front of 100 musicians and talk to them and leading them. – Kurt Masur

107784. I always imagined that to bring an orchestra to play together is not enough for a conductor. – Kurt Masur

107785. I believe so, but at first he must know. He must know in which spirit Beethoven has composed this piece. He must try to study that. And he must find out in which station of life of Beethoven he did. – Kurt Masur

107789. No one will ever argue that someone could have played Helen Keller better than Patty Duke. It was an incredibly demanding role and I don’t think anyone can argue that it was a false performance. – Richard Masur

107790. There is no relation to sound for deaf people. It is a totally different mental process. – Richard Masur

107791. The deaf community is in a favorable position because they have a national theatre and training groups of their own to get them started. Deaf actors have often acquired very valuable skills and experience before they get their break. – Richard Masur

107819. I was the center square on Hollywood Squares for about fifteen weeks. – Jerry Mathers

107820. Every time I find a picture of him with other women, or read in magazines that he’s involved with ‘groupies,’ I don’t go and show up where he is making a huge scene and getting our faces put all over the TV and papers. – Kim Mathers

107821. First and foremost, I would like to start off by saying that just because my husband is an entertainer, that does not mean that our personal business is for everyone’s entertainment purposes. – Kim Mathers

107822. My husband came up to Hot Rocks to check up on me, why is still unknown to me because if I was to cheat on him it wouldn’t be in a neighborhood bar where he knows I am. – Kim Mathers

107823. For if you do, then shouldn’t we blame the whole fraternity system? And if the whole fraternity system is guilty, then isn’t this an indictment of our educational institutions in general? I put it to you, Greg – isn’t this an indictment of our entire American society? – Tim Matheson

107824. I like real stories. – Tim Matheson

107825. With comedy, you really want to work things out beforehand. – Tim Matheson

107834. My Life in CIA is the first time that I’ve ever written a story in my own name. – Harry Mathews

107835. Well, I had this little notion – I started writing when I was eleven, writing poetry. I was passionately addicted to it; it was my great refuge through adolescence. – Harry Mathews

107836. Well, the great thing for me about poetry is that in good poems the dislocation of words, that is to say, the distance between what they say they’re saying and what they are actually saying is at its greatest. – Harry Mathews

107837. What I wanted to do and what I needed to do was something entirely different, and through reading Roussel I learned that I could do what I wanted all on my own and that I didn’t have to rely on what had actually happened in my somewhat limited life and reading. – Harry Mathews

107838. It’s true, I had an extremely delicious life, but that was my life at home, and perhaps because I was only a child, or for whatever reasons, I found the company of others, especially other boys, quite terrifying and upsetting. – Harry Mathews

107839. Well, my relationship to America at the time I left was very limited. – Harry Mathews

107840. I graduated in 1952 and went to Europe, with Niki and our first child Laura, who was then a year old. – Harry Mathews

107841. It has always been something I could do, and it may seem odd that in my case I seem to create an interesting narrative and frustrate the reader’s opportunities to follow it at every step. – Harry Mathews

107842. My next project is to get back to that. Actually, to learn how to write poetry. I’m not kidding. – Harry Mathews

107843. After the navy, I transferred to Harvard and finished there. I was there the spring term of 1951 and I stayed through the summer term and a whole other year, so I was able to do two years in a little less than a year and a half. – Harry Mathews

107844. And I finished college because I thought how much it would upset my parents if I didn’t. – Harry Mathews

107845. I also had this mistaken dream, fantasy really – perhaps because I’m good at languages – of being able in both Italy and France to become someone else through my fluency in the language. – Harry Mathews

107846. I left Princeton, but I graduated Harvard, in 1952. – Harry Mathews

107847. I love teaching. – Harry Mathews

107848. I think situations are more important than plot and character. – Harry Mathews

107850. I was immediately smitten with an attraction to this culture, not in the sense of high culture but of the basic way people behaved towards one another. – Harry Mathews

107851. I was stationed in Norfolk, Virginia, for a while, about which the less said the better, and then I was in the Mediterranean, about which the more said the better. – Harry Mathews

107852. I’d been brought up on the Upper East Side in a WASP society, which was death on crutches. – Harry Mathews

107855. If you’ve ever been around a group of actors, you’ve noticed, no doubt, that they can talk of nothing else under the sun but acting. It’s exactly the same way with baseball players. Your heart must be in your work. – Christy Mathewson

107856. You can learn little from victory. You can learn everything from defeat. – Christy Mathewson

107857. Many baseball fans look upon an umpire as a sort of necessary evil to the luxury of baseball, like the odor that follows an automobile. – Christy Mathewson

107858. Anybody’s best pitch is the one the batters ain’t hitting that day. – Christy Mathewson

107859. A boy cannot begin playing ball too early. I might almost say that while he is still creeping on all fours he should have a bouncing rubber ball. – Christy Mathewson

107860. A pitcher is not a ballplayer. – Christy Mathewson

107861. I owe everything I have to them when I’m out there on the mound. But I owe the fans nothing and they owe me nothing when I am not pitching. – Christy Mathewson

107862. Music is the best way for me to say I love you. – Mireille Mathieu

107863. My songs always speak of love, that’s the way I like them. – Mireille Mathieu

107864. It doesn’t matter if you have a desperate heart when you have to sing about joy; it doesn’t matter if you’re scared to death when the lights go on. – Mireille Mathieu

107865. In the life of a singer, it’s not all triumphs and happy memories; there are days you have to go out there when it’s the last thing you feel like doing. – Mireille Mathieu

107866. I was 4 years old when I sang in public for the very first time. – Mireille Mathieu

107867. There’s the fatigue that you have to forget about, because the red curtain still has to rise. – Mireille Mathieu

107868. It’s very much like opera singers. They do the same thing. The first thing in the morning and the last thing at night, the thing they think about is their voice and how to take care of it. – Johnny Mathis

107869. Even though there’s no forum for me on the radio for the kind of music I sing anymore, I am still excited about having a career where I can sing the best music in the world, and people will come and hear me because of the hit records I’ve had in the past. – Johnny Mathis

107870. When you do interviews, you have to talk about yourself – and I like to find out about other people. I am so familiar with everything that I do. I’ve said it over and over again. I think it is boring. – Johnny Mathis

107871. When I was 12 and started to take singing lessons from a woman, she told me that I would probably spend the rest of my life taking care of my voice. – Johnny Mathis

107872. When I do an album I try to find a producer that’s excited about something that they want me to sing, and I check with the record company to find out what they think they can sell – which is their No. 1 priority. – Johnny Mathis

107873. Sometimes being famous gets in the way of doing what you want to do. – Johnny Mathis

107874. My favorite singer to this day is Nat King Cole. I’ve tried to emulate his phrasing. It is so absolutely beautiful to listen to his lovely voice. – Johnny Mathis

107876. I’m just one of the lucky people. I have no other reason for my longevity. – Johnny Mathis

107877. I think there are a lot of people who really want to be famous, they really do. I don’t. It sort of gets in the way of the everyday things that I do. – Johnny Mathis

107878. I really, really enjoy music and that’s why I do what I do. – Johnny Mathis

107879. I also met, early on Ella Fitzgerald. Her songbooks are some of the most amazing bodies of work. – Johnny Mathis

107880. It’s just that some people are lucky and people still seem to enjoy the music. – Johnny Mathis

107881. But I am very grateful for my success, and with success, of course, comes a whole lot of celebrity. – Johnny Mathis

107882. Doing a piece on film is completely different from doing it onstage. – Samantha Mathis

107883. You really have to create everything in order to come away with a full human being on screen. – Samantha Mathis

107884. Jazz is rhythm and meaning. – Henri Matisse

107885. You study, you learn, but you guard the original naivete. It has to be within you, as desire for drink is within the drunkard or love is within the lover. – Henri Matisse

107887. In love, the one who runs away is the winner. – Henri Matisse

107889. Impressionism is the newspaper of the soul. – Henri Matisse

107890. It is only after years of preparation that the young artist should touch color – not color used descriptively, that is, but as a means of personal expression. – Henri Matisse

107891. In the beginning you must subject yourself to the influence of nature. You must be able to walk firmly on the ground before you start walking on a tightrope. – Henri Matisse

107892. My curves are not crazy. – Henri Matisse

107893. There are always flowers for those who want to see them. – Henri Matisse

107894. There is nothing more difficult for a truly creative painter than to paint a rose, because before he can do so he has first to forget all the roses that were ever painted. – Henri Matisse

107895. What I dream of is an art of balance, of purity and serenity devoid of troubling or depressing subject matter – a soothing, calming influence on the mind, rather like a good armchair which provides relaxation from physical fatigue. – Henri Matisse

107896. With color one obtains an energy that seems to stem from witchcraft. – Henri Matisse

107897. Work cures everything. – Henri Matisse

107898. A young woman has young claws, well sharpened. If she has character, that is. And if she hasn’t so much the worse for you. – Henri Matisse

107899. I’m growing old, I delight in the past. – Henri Matisse

107900. Time extracts various values from a painter’s work. When these values are exhausted the pictures are forgotten, and the more a picture has to give, the greater it is. – Henri Matisse

107901. Cutting into color reminds me of the sculptor’s direct carving. – Henri Matisse

107902. An artist must possess Nature. He must identify himself with her rhythm, by efforts that will prepare the mastery which will later enable him to express himself in his own language. – Henri Matisse

107903. I wouldn’t mind turning into a vermilion goldfish. – Henri Matisse

107904. A picture must possess a real power to generate light and for a long time now I’ve been conscious of expressing myself through light or rather in light. – Henri Matisse

107905. Creativity takes courage. – Henri Matisse

107906. Derive happiness in oneself from a good day’s work, from illuminating the fog that surrounds us. – Henri Matisse

107907. Drawing is like making an expressive gesture with the advantage of permanence. – Henri Matisse

107908. Exactitude is not truth. – Henri Matisse

107909. I have been no more than a medium, as it were. – Henri Matisse

107910. An artist must never be a prisoner. Prisoner? An artist should never be a prisoner of himself, prisoner of style, prisoner of reputation, prisoner of success, etc. – Henri Matisse

107911. I would like to recapture that freshness of vision which is characteristic of extreme youth when all the world is new to it. – Henri Matisse

107912. He who loves, flies, runs, and rejoices; he is free and nothing holds him back. – Henri Matisse

107913. I have always tried to hide my efforts and wished my works to have a light joyousness of springtime which never lets anyone suspect the labors it has cost me. – Henri Matisse

107914. I don’t paint things. I only paint the difference between things. – Henri Matisse

107915. I don’t know whether I believe in God or not. I think, really, I’m some sort of Buddhist. But the essential thing is to put oneself in a frame of mind which is close to that of prayer. – Henri Matisse

107916. I do not literally paint that table, but the emotion it produces upon me. – Henri Matisse

107917. The hearing aids are very helpful for speech reading. Without the hearing aids, my voice becomes very loud, and I cannot control the quality of my voice. – Marlee Matlin

107918. I’ve always wanted to write a book relating my experiences growing up as a deaf child in Chicago. Contrary to what people might think, it wasn’t all about hearing aids and speech classes or frustrations. – Marlee Matlin

107919. If I were offered a cochlear implant today, I would prefer not to have one. But that’s not a statement about hearing aids or cochlear implants. It’s about who you are. – Marlee Matlin

107920. It seems we’re always in transition and that it’s more about trends than it is about what’s meaningful. – Marlee Matlin

107921. It was ability that mattered, not disability, which is a word I’m not crazy about using. – Marlee Matlin

107922. Maybe my way of communicating through sign made me more in tune with my body and how it moved. Who knows? I just know when I saw a stage for the first time, I wanted to be on it. – Marlee Matlin

107923. The best feeling in the world is when your child comes up to you and lays their head in your lap, for no other reason but just because. I can’t wait to have more. – Marlee Matlin

107924. I’ve been around since I was 19, I won the Oscar when I was 21, I’ve had a couple of TV series. I’ve continued to work despite the predictions of some naysayers. – Marlee Matlin

107925. The only thing I can’t do is hear. I can drive, I have a life with four kids, I work on TV, I do movies, so the deafness question, is it that they want to know because, what? Not sure. – Marlee Matlin

107926. There is nothing better than being a parent. It is the most challenging job one could ever ask for. I love being a mom and I love being a friend to my children as well. – Marlee Matlin

107927. Watch me when people say deaf and dumb, or deaf mute, and I give them a look like you might get if you called Denzel Washington the wrong name. – Marlee Matlin

107928. What parent has it easy? I just never make the difficulty of it an obstacle. I just do it. – Marlee Matlin

107929. What the Bleep Do We Know was not written with a deaf person in mind, but when they met me, it clicked with them to have me in it. But that happens with a lot of actors in Hollywood, not just with me. – Marlee Matlin

107930. When I was 13, I told Henry Winkler I wanted to act. He said, Do it and don’t let anyone stand in your way. His validation just made it all the more true. I haven’t stopped thanking him since. – Marlee Matlin

107931. Every one of us is different in some way, but for those of us who are more different, we have to put more effort into convincing the less different that we can do the same thing they can, just differently. – Marlee Matlin

107932. When it comes down to it, it’s about who you know, and who’s a fan. It’s about whether you’re the right age, whether you’re hot or not, whether the studio is into you or not. – Marlee Matlin

107933. Everybody’s got a job to do, and I do mine as best I can. – Marlee Matlin

107934. I’m gonna be unemployed when people read this. Ha. – Marlee Matlin

107935. Hollywood embraced me in the late ’80s because there was a good project I was in and it was different. Nowadays, it’s about corporate mentality, box office, youth. – Marlee Matlin

107936. At some point we have to stop and say, There’s Marlee, not, There’s the deaf actress. – Marlee Matlin

107937. How many deaf people do you know in real life? Unless they live in a cave, or are 14, which seems to be true for most people in this business, what could I possibly tell them that they don’t already know? – Marlee Matlin

107938. I am writing my second novel for children for Simon and Schuster. – Marlee Matlin

107939. I can hear you and I can watch your mouth move, and then I put together the sounds and the visual image, and I can understand the words as I integrate the two signals. – Marlee Matlin

107940. I find the mantle of, she works hard for the money, or, she’s overcome so many obstacles a bit overused. – Marlee Matlin

107941. I have a great husband, great parents and in-laws, and I have help with a nanny. It’s not easy, but there are others who do it every day and don’t have a high-profile job as I do. – Marlee Matlin

107942. I have made the choices that work best for me. I know I cannot please everyone, and that’s fine. – Marlee Matlin

107943. I learned to speak first, and then to sign. I have never really known what it was like to hear, so I can’t compare hearing aids to normal hearing. – Marlee Matlin

107944. I listen to Billy Joel. He is fabulous. I saw him with Elton John when they toured together, it was so great. – Marlee Matlin

107945. I’m different, and my manner invites questions. I’m never afraid to answer. – Marlee Matlin

107946. I was the youngest and only girl in a family of two older brothers. – Marlee Matlin

107947. I got a good handshake. A lot of executives tell me I have the best handshake in Hollywood. – Marlee Matlin

107948. Differences are scarier now. The dollar isn’t so guaranteed if you don’t follow what they see as the norm. But I don’t moan about it. I just keep working. – Marlee Matlin

107949. I think a commission set up to examine slavery and the consequences of it, would probably be a very fruitful, important dialogue for the United States to be involved in. – Bob Matsui

107950. Hopefully as a country, that we learn from our mistakes of the past. – Robert Matsui

107951. These are challenging times for all Americans. We face the specter of war abroad and a steady stream of bad economic news at home. – Robert Matsui

107952. I was six months old at the time that I was taken, with my mother and father, from Sacramento, California, and placed in internment camps in the United States. – Robert Matsui

107953. I have to say that it’s very few countries that are willing to look back at its past and apologize for its act, or make amends for its act, as the United States had one. – Robert Matsui

107954. I was never given a trial. I never went before any magistrate, nor did my parents. To this day, I do not know what the charges that were lodged against me or my deceased parents at this time. – Robert Matsui

107955. Most of the tasks we do are for humans. For example, a tax calculation is counting numbers so the government can pull money out from my wallet, but government consists of humans. – Yukihiro Matsumoto

107956. Because of the Turing completeness theory, everything one Turing-complete language can do can theoretically be done by another Turing-complete language, but at a different cost. You can do everything in assembler, but no one wants to program in assembler anymore. – Yukihiro Matsumoto

107957. You want to enjoy life, don’t you? If you get your job done quickly and your job is fun, that’s good isn’t it? That’s the purpose of life, partly. Your life is better. – Yukihiro Matsumoto

107958. The orthogonal features, when combined, can explode into complexity. – Yukihiro Matsumoto

107959. Ruby inherited the Perl philosophy of having more than one way to do the same thing. I inherited that philosophy from Larry Wall, who is my hero actually. I want to make Ruby users free. I want to give them the freedom to choose. – Yukihiro Matsumoto

107960. People are different. People choose different criteria. But if there is a better way among many alternatives, I want to encourage that way by making it comfortable. So that’s what I’ve tried to do. – Yukihiro Matsumoto

107961. I didn’t work hard to make Ruby perfect for everyone, because you feel differently from me. No language can be perfect for everyone. I tried to make Ruby perfect for me, but maybe it’s not perfect for you. The perfect language for Guido van Rossum is probably Python. – Yukihiro Matsumoto

107962. From the viewpoint of what you can do, therefore, languages do differ – but the differences are limited. For example, Python and Ruby provide almost the same power to the programmer. – Yukihiro Matsumoto

107963. Actually, I didn’t make the claim that Ruby follows the principle of least surprise. Someone felt the design of Ruby follows that philosophy, so they started saying that. I didn’t bring that up, actually. – Yukihiro Matsumoto

107964. In our daily lives as programmers, we process text strings a lot. So I tried to work hard on text processing, namely the string class and regular expressions. Regular expressions are built into the language and are very tuned up for use. – Yukihiro Matsumoto

107965. I believe consistency and orthogonality are tools of design, not the primary goal in design. – Yukihiro Matsumoto

107966. No matter how deep a study you make. What you really have to rely on is your own intuition and when it comes down to it, you really don’t know what’s going to happen until you do it. – Konosuke Matsushita

107967. You have to write badly to write at all. If it’s crappy, I will rewrite it later. But it will be mine. You can hear the resonance of an artist who goes into herself. – Kathy Mattea

107968. So I really did stop and change what I saw I was about, and really try to put that principle into play as the center of everything – my friendships, my marriage, my career, my family, my way of being in the world. And that changed everything for me. – Kathy Mattea

107969. That’s the great paradox of living on this earth, that in the midst of great pain you can have great joy as well. If we didn’t have those things we’d just be numb. – Kathy Mattea

107970. There’s nothing more fun than sitting in a circle playing with people who are really into it. – Kathy Mattea

107971. We rob ourselves of so much by focusing on the wrong stuff. And the ability to get into the moment and deal with what is, that’s the real opportunity. – Kathy Mattea

107972. What is hard to remember when you’re in the middle of it is that when you get through to the other side, you always walk away with a gift. If you can stand in there and not walk away from it, you get transformed by it. – Kathy Mattea

107973. When you keep the caliber of musicians very high in the band, people are going to come and go. Some of them will be people who have to try various things, it’s natural. – Kathy Mattea

107974. Whenever someone leaves, the next person that gets pulled in is somebody with similar values. – Kathy Mattea

107975. You have to listen to what resonates within your own gut. You find your direction there. Your voice comes out. – Kathy Mattea

107976. You know, your speaking voice comes back, but your singing voice you use in a different way. – Kathy Mattea

107977. Your voice is vibrant for only a certain part of your life. There are some records I’ve always wanted to make, and I don’t know if I want to waste this time beating on the door of the charts. – Kathy Mattea

107978. I really think that’s what music and art is about. It’s another way to connect to the divine. It’s a real pure way of touching that deeper reality beneath our life. – Kathy Mattea

107979. So I had to just kind of go back to the hotel, take a shower, sit quiet, dig down deep, warm up, and allow myself to move into some kind of zone. And then I remembered that a lot of my favorite musical moments are not about perfection. – Kathy Mattea

107980. You find yourself in this place where you really get to find out what you’re made of, and what I found was that when I was at my time of greatest need, there were people who appeared in my life, and helped me through it. – Kathy Mattea

107981. I can’t even say I’ve begun yet, but I’m trying on the idea that there is a book in my future. – Kathy Mattea

107982. I’ve come to understand my role. On some level, I provide the context for them to shine. I also know my role is the steward of the songs, and the center point, the artist that the stuff all revolves around. But I really try to honor that. – Kathy Mattea

107983. And in fact, I think the more we start to worship perfection the more soul leaks out of art. – Kathy Mattea

107984. Anyway, our family went into complete crisis mode. I have two older brothers, and we rallied as a family. – Kathy Mattea

107985. So all of these things are going on that make you wake up and realize you are a mortal person. You can choose to cruise through your life, but if you do, you’re going to open your eyes at some point, and it’s gone. – Kathy Mattea

107986. Chocolate’s okay, but I prefer a really intense fruit taste. You know when a peach is absolutely perfect… it’s sublime. I’d like to capture that and then use it in a dessert. – Kathy Mattea

107987. I don’t live in as much fear as I used to. I’m not afraid of the music business. Life is too damn short. I know what’s important, and the tasks are very clear. – Kathy Mattea

107988. I guess the biggest thing is that I committed to a spiritual center before I do anything else. And I put some daily things in my life into practice and I maintain that, to make sure that I don’t drop the ball. – Kathy Mattea

107989. I jump into the process, and the record begins to gel at some point. Then I begin to get a picture of where I’m going. But it’s not always something I know on the front-end. – Kathy Mattea

107990. I would step into a place of being lined up with a sense of purpose and my inner compass, and everything was going in the same direction. Then I’d get lazy and get off the track. And then things would start to fall apart, and I’d back up and get it together again. – Kathy Mattea

107991. A gourmet meal without a glass of wine just seems tragic to me somehow. – Kathy Mattea

107992. If you say that you’re all about a certain something, and look back and see that the choices that you’ve made don’t reflect that, then there’s something for you to look at. – Kathy Mattea

107993. Or if I have my head in the results, I can’t work with what I have, because I’m trying to force something to happen. And with singing, any time you force it, you tighten up. If you tighten up, you’re screwed, nothing will work. – Kathy Mattea

107994. Can you blame them? We have to filter so much information these days. But it does make it difficult for an artist. I’m 46 years old now. I’ve had a lot of life experience and my voice has changed. People who expect the same old me are bound to be disappointed. – Kathy Mattea

107995. I like real problems, the human condition – twisted, darker stuff. – Drea De Matteo

107996. I like to make everything my friends are involved in a little better. I should have just become a manager. – Drea De Matteo
