10327. The reason sport is attractive to many of the general public is that it’s filled with reversals. What you think may happen doesn’t happen. A champion is beaten, an unknown becomes a champion. – Roger Bannister

10329. May is a very early time in the year and the weather is usually bad. You cannot run a fast mile race if there is a strong wind, because it makes your running uneven. – Roger Bannister

10330. My athleticism was really the core to social acceptance, because in those days the overwhelming number of students came from more of a public school background than I did. – Roger Bannister

10339. Your spikes, which were really quite long then, would catch the material of the track and your shoe would get heavier. I was simply filing them down and rubbing some graphite on the spikes. I thought I would run more effectively. – Roger Bannister

10341. I found longer races boring. I found the mile just perfect. – Roger Bannister

10342. My concentration was really on getting to university and becoming a doctor. My parents let me know that school marks were important. Achievement was something which came by hard work. – Roger Bannister

10346. Athletics is a luxury. – Roger Bannister

10347. I lived on the top of one hill and the school was at the top of another hill. Nobody ever went to school by car – we didn’t have any cars during the war. So that to and from school was itself a training. – Roger Bannister

10348. I raced supremely well. I felt I was as well fitted to do it as I had ever been, and as perhaps I might ever be. I went climbing three weeks before, because I was feeling fed up with running. – Roger Bannister

10349. I think that is a universal adolescent feeling, trying to find your place. The adolescent who is perfectly adjusted to his environment, I’ve yet to meet. – Roger Bannister

10352. I was involved in music, acting, and some running, but my firm wish was to become a doctor. That was the formative age when I had decided on the pattern of my career. – Roger Bannister

10353. I was playing rugby and the other games English school children do, and there was an event in which races were run, and I won these by a considerable margin. – Roger Bannister

10355. If there was the opportunity to climb a mountain, or to go ballooning, or some adventurous activity, I would always be keen to do it. I loved the countryside. – Roger Bannister

10357. It is true I gained muscular vigour, but with it a prodigious appetite, which I was compelled to indulge, and consequently increased in weight, until my kind old friend advised me to forsake the exercise. – William Banting

10358. Yet the evil still increased, and, like the parasite of barnacles on a ship, if it did not destroy the structure, it obstructed its fair, comfortable progress in the path of life. – William Banting

10359. The very gradual reductions in my weight which I am able to show, may be interesting to many, and I have great pleasure in stating them, believing that they serve to demonstrate further the merit of the system pursued. – William Banting

10360. The great charm and comfort of the system is, that its affects are palpable within a week of trial, which creates a natural stimulus to persevere for few weeks more, when the fact becomes established beyond question. – William Banting

10361. My other bodily ailments have become mere matters of history. – William Banting

10362. My diminished girth, in tailor phraseology, was hardly conceivable even by my own friends, or my respected medical adviser, until I put on my former clothing, over what I now wear, which is a thoroughly convincing proof of the remarkable change. – William Banting

10365. I am fully persuaded that thousands of our fellow-men might profit equally by a similar course to mine; but, constitutions not being all alike, a different course of treatment may be advisable for the removal of so tormenting an affliction. – William Banting

10366. For the sake of argument and illustration I will presume that certain articles of ordinary diet, however beneficial in youth, are prejudicial in advanced life, like beans to a horse, whose common ordinary food is hay and corn. – William Banting

10367. Few men have led a more active life – bodily or mentally – from a constitutional anxiety for regularity, precision, and order, during fifty years’ business career, from which I had retired. – William Banting

10376. There is other disturbing facts surround the hideous 911 attacks, which my family and I could see from the third floor bathroom window of our homes! – Amiri Baraka

10377. If the flag of an armed enemy of the U.S. is allowed to fly over government buildings, then it implies that slavery, or at least the threat of slavery, is sanctioned by that government and can still legally exist. – Amiri Baraka

10805. It didn’t matter what we did or where we did it as long as we were together. We knew we’d found what most people either pursue in years of futile search or dismiss as a fantasy at the outset: the missing half of ourselves. The real thing. – John Perry Barlow

10806. Organizations endure, however, in proportion to the breadth of the morality by which they are governed. Thus the endurance of organization depends upon the quality of leadership; and that quality derives from the breadth of the morality upon which it rests. – Chester Irving Barnard

10807. I don’t believe medical discoveries are doing much to advance human life. As fast as we create ways to extend it we are inventing ways to shorten it. – Christiaan Barnard

10808. The prime goal is to alleviate suffering, and not to prolong life. And if your treatment does not alleviate suffering, but only prolongs life, that treatment should be stopped. – Christiaan Barnard

10809. Suffering isn’t ennobling, recovery is. – Christiaan Barnard

10810. On Saturday, I was a surgeon in South Africa, very little known. On Monday, I was world renowned. – Christiaan Barnard

10812. It is infinitely better to transplant a heart than to bury it to be devoured by worms. – Christiaan Barnard

10814. It is quite possible we may have formed entirely erroneous ideas of what we actually see. The greenish gray patches may not be seas at all, nor the ruddy continents, solid land. Neither may the obscuring patches be clouds of vapor. – Edward E. Barnard

10815. It is well to fetter the wings of our fancy and restrain its flights. – Edward E. Barnard

10816. Man is too quick at forming conclusions. – Edward E. Barnard

10818. We help people to begin truly healthful diets, and it is absolutely wonderful to see, not only their success, but also their delight at their ability to break old habits and feel really healthy for a change. – Neal Barnard

10819. To give a child animal products is a form of child abuse. – Neal Barnard

10820. The beef industry has contributed to more American deaths than all the wars of this century, all natural disasters, and all automobile accidents combined. – Neal Barnard

10821. Meat consumption is just as dangerous to public health as tobacco use… It’s time we looked into holding the meat producers and fast-food outlets legally accountable. – Neal Barnard

10822. In my own life, I decided to leave meat off my plate in medical school, but was a bit slow to realise that dairy products and eggs are not health foods either. – Neal Barnard

10823. Chicken fat, beef fat, fish fat, fried foods – these are the foods that fuel our fat genes by giving them raw materials for building body fat. – Neal Barnard

10824. A vegan diet takes care of most of what we need to do. But you’ll also want to minimize the use of oils generally, because while olive oil and other vegetable oils are better for your heart than chicken fat, they are as fattening as animal fats. – Neal Barnard

10825. If beef is your idea of ‘real food for real people,’ you’d better live real close to a real good hospital. – Neal Barnard

10830. The Bible, as a revelation from God, was not designed to give us all the information we might desire, nor to solve all the questions about which the human soul is perplexed, but to impart enough to be a safe guide to the haven of eternal rest. – Albert Barnes

10831. We can always find something to be thankful for, and there may be reasons why we ought to be thankful for even those dispensations which appear dark and frowning. – Albert Barnes

10832. Praise now is one of the great duties of the redeemed. It will be their employment for ever. – Albert Barnes

10835. A mass of dust, world’s momentary slave, Is man, in state of our old Adam made, Soon born to die, soon flourishing to fade. – Barnabe Barnes

10837. Television is the first truly democratic culture – the first culture available to everybody and entirely governed by what the people want. The most terrifying thing is what people do want. – Clive Barnes

10838. The priceless galaxy of misinformation called the mind. – Djuna Barnes

10839. Well, isn’t Bohemia a place where everyone is as good as everyone else – and must not a waiter be a little less than a waiter to be a good Bohemian? – Djuna Barnes

10841. We are adhering to life now with our last muscle – the heart. – Djuna Barnes

10842. To love without criticism is to be betrayed. – Djuna Barnes

10849. An image is a stop the mind makes between uncertainties. – Djuna Barnes

10850. After all, it is not where one washes one’s neck that counts but where one moistens one’s throat. – Djuna Barnes

10851. A strong sense of identity gives man an idea he can do no wrong; too little accomplishes the same. – Djuna Barnes

10853. The night is a skin pulled over the head of day that the day may be in torment. – Djuna Barnes

10854. Obama specializes in knocking down straw men. “I reject the view that says our problems will simply take care of themselves,” he said, implying that’s the view of Republicans. It’s the view of almost no one. – Fred Barnes

10855. The mainstream media may have trouble resisting the temptation to declare that Karl Rove has been demoted, but the truth is quite the contrary. By giving up his role as deputy White House chief of staff, Rove has been freed to do what he does best: shape big issues and develop strategies to win elections. – Fred Barnes

10856. President Obama insists he’s a free-market guy. But you have to wonder whether he understands how a free economy really works. – Fred Barnes

10857. Obama sounded like Al Gore on global warming. The more the case for man-made warming falls apart, the more hysterical Gore gets about an imminent catastrophe. The more public support his stimulus bill loses, the more Obama embraces fear-mongering. – Fred Barnes

10858. Candidates don’t have to deal with reality. They talk about the wonderful things they can accomplish as if advocating them is the same as achieving them. They live in a world of political make-believe in which everything from reconciling conflicting interests to paying for costly programs is easy. – Fred Barnes

10859. Presidents with strong nerves are decisive. They don’t balk at unpopular decisions. They are willing to make people angry. Bush had strong nerves. Clinton, who passed up a chance to eliminate Osama bin Laden, did not. Obama is a people pleaser, a trait not normally associated with nerves of steel. – Fred Barnes

10860. As I’ve explained to my wife many times, you have to kill your wife or mistress to get on the front page of the papers. – Julian Barnes

10861. Books say: she did this because. Life says: she did this. Books are where things are explained to you, life where things aren’t. – Julian Barnes

10862. The land of embarrassment and breakfast. – Julian Barnes

10863. The gun dealer is not only paying these two police officers, but more importantly, the gun dealer has said he will never again sell more than one gun to a customer. This is exactly what we’re trying to get the gun industry across the country to do. – Michael D. Barnes

10864. We’ve got activists all across the country like the members of the Million Mom March organization, some of their leaders are here tonight. We’re phone banking congressional offices and pursuing editorial boards. – Michael D. Barnes

10867. They have some pretty tough gun laws in Japan, as they do in any other civilized country in the world, and they’re not killing each other off with firearms. You have very violent films in Europe, yet it’s not causing the mayhem we see in our streets routinely here. – Michael D. Barnes

10868. Who’s paying the million bucks? The insurance company. We’ve been trying for years to get the insurance industry to say to the gun industry, We won’t insure you unless you have policies that will reduce the likelihood of guns falling into the wrong hands easily. – Michael D. Barnes

10869. The vast majority of Americans agree with us. We’re doing everything that we can. We’re advertising, right now we’re on television with an advertisement running in the Washington area. We’ve got newspaper ads. – Michael D. Barnes

10870. Should we have background checks, waiting periods? To drive a car you have to pass a test that shows you know how to drive your car safely, you should have to do the same thing with guns. – Michael D. Barnes

10871. Let me share some facts with you about the law in most of our country. California is in many ways a little different from the rest of the world, and California has better gun laws than many states, although California’s need to be improved. – Michael D. Barnes

10872. It’s a tragedy, but with your support and your help we will wage this fight and we’re going to win it. – Michael D. Barnes

10873. If you are a gun manufacturer, the product you make is not subject to safety regulation by the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Toy guns are subject to safety regulation; water pistols are, but not real guns. – Michael D. Barnes

10874. If today is your typical day in America, 80 of our fellow citizens will die from gunfire. In the last two weeks, more Americans have died from gunfire here at home in the United States than in the entire war in Iraq since it started. – Michael D. Barnes

10875. Every place in the country you should get a license that shows you know how to safely store it, keep it away from your children or grandchildren. You should have to license it so the police can trace it if it’s used in a crime. – Michael D. Barnes

10876. But there are 90 million gun owners in the United States. Only 3.5 million want the insurance and magazines and the various things you get for joining the NRA. – Michael D. Barnes

10877. There should be a background check every time a firearm is transferred. You shouldn’t be able to go to a gun show and buy guns without a background check. There are Internet gun sales, classified ads in the newspapers – and you can buy guns without background checks. – Michael D. Barnes

10878. The fight for sanity in our gun safety laws is not by any means over. In many ways it’s just beginning. – Michael D. Barnes

10879. There is zero debate about whether the world is getting warmer. That is a fact, a measured fact. There is some debate, although not much anymore, about what’s causing the world to get warmer. And the consensus, by far is that it’s us. – Peter Barnes

10880. But the whole idea of the transformation… mystery, transformation, and manipulations – those were the things that Marcel was a magician at. That’s his magic. – Robert Barnes

10881. When I was a young man, I was overly sensitive to things, and I found it difficult to eat when I was nervous. – Robert Barnes

10882. It was terrible on dates, because I could never eat when I was on a date. – Robert Barnes

10883. I don’t know if you’ve noticed it. But Duchamp was magnificent. – Robert Barnes

10884. What I am telling you is that Matta had a way of making you feel comfortable and that’s probably why he had nine wives because he made them feel comfortable and then uncomfortable later. – Robert Barnes

10885. I just did what I did and I still am. It makes you unpopular, maybe for a lifetime, but I’d rather do that than be popular and doubt what I am. – Robert Barnes

10886. There is no country on earth with a stronger tradition of protecting the public’s right to know. – Roy Barnes

10887. Repeating a grade needs to be the last resort, not an automatic response to a child who is struggling to learn. – Roy Barnes

10888. One thing I learned a long time ago as a prosecutor is that it’s tough to get people to obey a law if there is not penalty for breaking it. – Roy Barnes

10894. We changed the names of our technical schools to colleges, we expanded the eligibility for HOPE scholarships for technical training, and we added some formula funding. – Roy Barnes

10895. We live in a state with a wonderful climate and plenty of natural beauty, from the shores of Cumberland Island to the Chattahoochee River to the Blue Ridge Mountains. – Roy Barnes

10896. We made a good start toward preserving recreational areas like the Chattahoochee River. – Roy Barnes

10897. What I am proposing this year are not lofty concepts far removed form the daily struggle so of ordinary Georgians. They are proposals that directly effect the lives of the people we serve. – Roy Barnes

10898. No one in government should ever think that the citizens they work for can’t or won’t scrutinize their actions. – Roy Barnes

10899. We will never forget those like my great-grandfather who fought at Vicksburg. – Roy Barnes

10900. Business and the state have a common interest; not an adversarial interest. – Roy Barnes

10901. Neither political party is clean when it comes to tactics that divide our people. – Roy Barnes

10902. And one of the things I’ve tried to do in my first months in office is to give more Georgians – reporters and members of the general public alike – a closer look at how their government works. – Roy Barnes

10903. After all, I have spent the better part of my adult life insisting that government be open… that government be accessible… and that government be held accountable to people who voted us into office. – Roy Barnes

10914. I want to go to sea. – Joshua Barney

10915. I have a need to make these sorts of connections literal sometimes, and a vehicle often helps to do that. I have a relationship to car culture. It isn’t really about loving cars. It’s sort of about needing them. – Matthew Barney

10917. I’ve always thought of the project as a sort of sexually driven digestive system, that it was a consumer and a producer of matter. And it is desire driven, rather than driven by hunger or anything like that. – Matthew Barney

10918. An interesting thing happened in 1989, right as I was graduating: the stock market crashed and really changed the landscape of the art world in New York. It made the kind of work I was doing interesting to galleries that wouldn’t have normally been interested in it. – Matthew Barney

10919. A lot of my work has to do with not allowing my characters to have an ego in a way that the stomach doesn’t have an ego when it’s wanting to throw up. It just does it. – Matthew Barney

10921. A lot of these angles are really about trying to mimic broadcast sports angles in order to anchor the scene, to sort of normalize it before it becomes abstracted. – Matthew Barney

10948. When men make themselves into brutes it is just to treat them like brutes. – Amelia Barr

10951. The great difference between voyages rests not with the ships, but with the people you meet on them. – Amelia Barr

10952. The fate of love is that it always seems too little or too much. – Amelia Barr

10953. That is the great mistake about the affections. It is not the rise and fall of empires, the birth and death of kings, or the marching of armies that move them most. When they answer from their depths, it is to the domestic joys and tragedies of life. – Amelia Barr

10954. It is only in sorrow bad weather masters us; in joy we face the storm and defy it. – Amelia Barr

10962. Old age is the verdict of life. – Amelia Barr

10963. Human relations are built on feeling, not on reason or knowledge. And feeling is not an exact science; like all spiritual qualities, it has the vagueness of greatness about it. – Amelia E. Barr

10965. What we buy, and pay for, is part of ourselves. – Amelia E. Barr

10981. And I’ve had vocal training on and off for years. – Julia Barr

10982. Women complain about PMS, but I think of it as the only time of the month when I can be myself. – Roseanne Barr

10983. My hope is that gays will be running the world, because then there would be no war. Just a greater emphasis on military apparel. – Roseanne Barr

10990. The thing women have yet to learn is nobody gives you power. You just take it. – Roseanne Barr

10992. I figure if my kids are alive at the end of the day, I’ve done my job. – Roseanne Barr
