109565. To enjoy enduring success we should travel a little in advance of the world. – John McDonald

109566. There must be a positive and negative in everything in the universe in order to complete a circuit or circle, without which there would be no activity, no motion. – John McDonald

109567. The intensity of your desire governs the power with which the force is directed. – John McDonald

109568. A set definite objective must be established if we are to accomplish anything in a big way. – John McDonald

109569. We end the show with something that’s never been on TV because it was too big for a sketch but we couldn’t stretch it out to make a whole episode because it would have been too long, but we always thought it was really good. – Kevin McDonald

109570. We never thought the first movie would bomb. – Kevin McDonald

109571. You know, I’ve never seen South Park, just by coincidence. – Kevin McDonald

109572. We always thought that we’d go on from the show to have a career in movies. – Kevin McDonald

109573. I had to learn how to drive because I didn’t drive in Toronto. – Kevin McDonald

109574. I can’t explain it, but spiritually it makes sense – though I don’t understand how it does make sense. – Kevin McDonald

109575. We’re doing 3000 seaters before that we never played anything more than 1000. – Kevin McDonald

109576. So the laughs had to come from the character, not because we had balloons in our shirts or were speaking in high voices. That was very important to us. – Kevin McDonald

109577. Of course Toronto might as well be Buffalo, because we get each other’s TV. – Kevin McDonald

109578. I would also would have liked the part of the Bus Driver. – Kevin McDonald

109579. I feel that I’m sort of playing me but more feminine, and to me more feminine means smarter. – Kevin McDonald

109580. Oh, completely liberating because even if you don’t do a woman right, you just have to put on high heels a wig, a bra and a dress, and I feel liberated. – Kevin McDonald

109581. Yes, they allowed us to play around a lot because, like we said, the director’s such a good comedy director. – Kevin McDonald

109582. What I always say is that we’re the illegitimate children of Andy Kaufman and Jerry Lewis. – Kevin McDonald

109583. And we know Bruce Campbell from way back, so that was a lot of fun. – Kevin McDonald

109584. Anything that was perverse and silly would be Kids in the Hall. – Kevin McDonald

109585. He sort of gets comic moments. Not a lot of directors do. – Kevin McDonald

109586. Well… Actually I got picked because I was the only one who fit the wedding gown – they had my size. – Kevin McDonald

109587. I don’t want to be the cliche American Idol dude. I want to be different, you know – that’s the whole goal, me and music. It’s about being yourself and being unique. – Paul McDonald

109588. I’ve been touring for so long, I’ve kind of honed into exactly what I am, I’m an artist so if you like it, you like it, if you don’t you don’t, you know? – Paul McDonald

109589. They said just keep doing my thing, don’t try to change anything, which I won’t. – Paul McDonald

109590. I sing both in my shower and in my car, mostly in my car, because I have this weird thing – whenever I’m singing to the radio – my friends kind of hate it – but I pick out the harmonies in my head, and I’m singing the harmonies to the tracks and I’m jamming it out. – Paul McDonald

109591. If my life were a song, what would it be? ‘A Never Ending Road of Musical Good Times’. – Paul McDonald

109592. My favorite music to sing would be my own songs, my original songs, just because I know them, you know I write the tunes, so my favorite songs are the newest ones that I write. That’s what I like to sing the most, because it means something, it’s real, it comes from me. – Paul McDonald

109593. The creative conquest of space will serve as a wonderful substitute for war. – James S. McDonnell

109594. I love the idea of a woman being able to discover the idea of power this way, on such a scale. And I don’t know about that, what it means – well, I guess I’d better, or my part’s in trouble. – Mary McDonnell

109595. I do think that it’s extremely important with this character show her assuming power with a great deal of grace, and find out how to do things she won’t like – the things she’s called upon to do. – Mary McDonnell

109596. The Cylons are such a frightening concept – not knowing who is real. No way. – Mary McDonnell

109597. I love to work. I love to have complexity. – Mary McDonnell

109598. It’s phenomenally important to me that, if I’m going to be spending years on a project, I need to be interested in the whole thing. I’m not there to be on my own. And if I’m going to be with these people, I’d best be interested in their work. – Mary McDonnell

109599. Ron allowed us to see right away the private piece of a person about to become very public. I suspect we’re going to see more of her very private world – Laura’s private experience. I’m not sure yet how public she’s going to be about the actions she’s going to have to take. – Mary McDonnell

109600. That moment was very important because it was political. That’s what has to be done, so they struck a deal. She figures his is a well-thought-out motivation that she felt was worthy trade-off. The motivation here is survival, and she has to think like a leader. – Mary McDonnell

109601. With BSG, sci-fi is the human experience taken beyond the envelope. When I first became involved with the project, I knew that I would be able to play a human being for many years, exploring and reflecting on issues that would impact people’s lives. – Mary McDonnell

109602. Well, I don’t know what Ron has in mind, but I do know about the arc of the show. Looking at how intuitive and instinctive Eddie and I play, that is the sort of thing that leads into sexual chemistry. I wouldn’t be surprised if it emerged. – Mary McDonnell

109603. One of my first jobs was at the Boston Globe. I worked in the sports department six months a year. When I was ready to graduate, the sports editor gave me a job as a schoolboy sports writer. – Will McDonough

109604. I don’t think the players play with the same desire they once did. – Will McDonough

109605. Muhammad Ali is a combination of personality and athlete who is probably better known around the world than any other. He became a great hero. – Will McDonough

109606. There aren’t enough good journalists. There are too many who really weren’t groomed to be reporters and, as a result, some of the reporting is shallow. – Will McDonough

109607. The wonderful thing about television is the immediate impact of pictures of current events. – Will McDonough

109608. The two major things that changed the makeup of all professional sports are money generated by television and courts that players went to in order to win their freedom as free agents. – Will McDonough

109609. The one good thing about television is the money; you can make a lot more money than in newspapers. – Will McDonough

109610. The future is electronic. It’s radio, television and the Internet; it’s not really newspapers anymore. – Will McDonough

109611. The ability of players to jump teams when their contracts are up has hurt fan loyalty. – Will McDonough

109612. Overall, I think Michael Jordan is the greatest athlete in any particular sport. He dominated the game for the Chicago Bulls and brought the NBA to its greatest peak of popularity. – Will McDonough

109613. Pete Rozelle used television to get the game to the American public by creating the Super Bowl and making it the biggest sporting event in the world. – Will McDonough

109614. I don’t think there is enough educational programming, but unfortunately, television is built around advertising and those shows don’t get the big ratings. – Will McDonough

109615. I think the greatest all-around athlete ever was Jim Brown. He played lacrosse, basketball and ran track at Syracuse. He played professional football for the Browns. – Will McDonough

109616. I’ve been very fortunate to be involved in all the Super Bowls, to see some World Series, to cover heavyweight championship fights; I’ve been to the Olympics and seen every sporting event there is. – Will McDonough

109617. When I started at the Globe 40 years ago, there were seven newspapers in Boston and now there are only two. There were only three or four television stations in Boston and now there are a dozen. – Will McDonough

109618. I think we’ll always have newspapers, but they’ll lose influence. – Will McDonough

109619. I don’t think we use television the way we should or the way the inventors intended. – Will McDonough

109620. I think money in general hurts all sports. – Will McDonough

109621. I think almost every newspaper in the United States has lost circulation due to the Internet. I also think the Internet will lead to a lot of plagiarism in journalism. – Will McDonough

109622. I received $100 per week when I started working at the Globe after graduation. – Will McDonough

109623. I predict that many teams will go out of business and the size of the leagues will be greatly reduced. – Will McDonough

109624. I was fortunate to be part of a very successful show on CBS in 1986. I switched to NBC for eight years and through these experiences have gotten terrific insight into television; it’s a fascinating medium. – Will McDonough

109625. It’s a scary thing going into the workforce with a $50,000 debt and you’ve been trained as a classical theatre actor. There’s always a depression in the theatre. – Frances McDormand

109626. I’m a character actress, plain and simple… Who can worry about a career? Have a life. Movie stars have careers – actors work, and then they don’t work, and then they work again. – Frances McDormand

109627. The fact that I’m sleeping with the director may have something to do with it. – Frances McDormand

109628. Movie stars have careers – actors work, and then they don’t work, and then they work again. – Frances McDormand

109629. Most women’s pictures are as boring and as formulaic as men’s pictures. In place of a car chase or a battle scene, what you get is an extreme closeup of a woman breaking down. – Frances McDormand

109630. The only power you have is the word no. – Frances McDormand

109631. Who can worry about a career? Have a life. – Frances McDormand

109633. I like hard rock, and classic rock, and even metal. – Frances McDormand

109634. I haven’t wanted to play a mother for a long time because I am one. – Frances McDormand

109635. I don’t think you can ever completely transform yourself on film, but if you do your job well, you can make people believe that you’re the character you’re trying to be. – Frances McDormand

109636. I don’t think of myself as a movie star and I can pretty easily convince other people that I’m not a movie star. – Frances McDormand

109637. I am an ordinary person. – Frances McDormand

109638. Certainly, a lot of the films I’ve worked on have ended up good movies, but they haven’t always been the best experiences. – Frances McDormand

109639. There’s only two givens with choosing acting as a profession: one is you will always be unemployed, always, and it doesn’t matter how much money you make, you’re still always going to be unemployed; and that you have no power. – Frances McDormand

109640. It’s much easier to play supporting roles because that’s what I do in my life: I support my son. – Frances McDormand

109641. Like most women, I hate when a guy tries to pick me up by saying, You are the hottest girl I’ve ever seen. It’s totally unrealistic. There are beautiful women everywhere. – Karen McDougal

109642. My dream date is a tall, dark, handsome, blue eyed man with a bubble butt who will whisk me away to Paris in a hot air balloon to wine me, dine me and. – Karen McDougal

109643. The only foreplay I really need is for a guy to kiss my hip bone. The hip is the most erotic and neglected body part. Kiss the hip bone with your lips. – Karen McDougal

109644. We all want to be the sexy girl. – Karen McDougal

109645. I’ve actually been turned down for jobs because I was in Playboy. – Karen McDougal

109646. I love to wear lingerie. The problem is that men always rip it off too quickly. When women are dolled up in lingerie they feel sexy. So let us wear it for five minutes. – Karen McDougal

109647. If you want to meet a woman, it’s best just to smile and say hi. – Karen McDougal

109648. A lot of Playmates look like Playmates, but I look so girl-next-door and wholesome. – Karen McDougal

109649. For me the ideal date would be to drink wine in the backyard under the stars, listen to music and just talk. Then we’d eat steak and, later, dessert. If all went as planned, we’d save some of the dessert and play with it while making out. – Karen McDougal

109650. I enjoyed being in movies when I was a boy. As a child you’re not acting – you believe. – Roddy McDowall

109651. I can’t say I was unhappy as a child actor in films. I had a particularly wonderful time. – Roddy McDowall

109652. I started to study, because I knew I had to learn a lot about myself as an actor; you can’t act the same as you did as a child. – Roddy McDowall

109653. I still have the actor’s disease. I always think I’ll never get another job. – Roddy McDowall

109654. My whole life I’ve been trying to prove I’m not just yesterday. – Roddy McDowall

109655. They said I couldn’t play anything but an English boy. I knew I could. So I went to New York. – Roddy McDowall

109656. Fortunately, I happened to go east at a time when live television was centered in New York. – Roddy McDowall

109657. Where I once believed people were there to be used, I started thinking of other people first. – Josh McDowell

109658. If they had connived a scheme, and Christ had not been raised from the dead, where would have been the hardest place on the face of the earth to convince anyone? In Jerusalem. – Josh McDowell

109659. After I set out to refute Christianity intellectually and couldn’t, I came to the conclusion the Bible was true and Jesus Christ was God’s Son. – Josh McDowell

109660. As a reward for their efforts, however, those early Christians were beaten, stoned to death, thrown to the lions, tortured and crucified. Every conceivable method was used to stop them from talking. – Josh McDowell

109661. Because the New Testament provides the primary historical source for information on the resurrection, many critics during the 19th century attacked the reliability of these biblical documents. – Josh McDowell

109662. Both Jewish and Roman sources and traditions admit an empty tomb. – Josh McDowell

109663. Christ appeared alive on several occasions after the cataclysmic events of that first Easter. – Josh McDowell

109664. For centuries many of the world’s distinguished philosophers have assaulted Christianity as being irrational, superstitious and absurd. – Josh McDowell

109665. Here’s the simplest answer: Within weeks, the disciples proclaimed the resurrection of Jesus Christ, that He had been bodily raised from the dead and appeared to them. – Josh McDowell

109666. I am not a Christian because God changed my life; I am a Christian because of my convictions about who Jesus Christ is. – Josh McDowell

109667. Why don’t the names of Buddha, Mohammed, Confucius offend people? The reason is that these others didn’t claim to be God, but Jesus did. – Josh McDowell

109668. If Jesus Christ was who He claimed to be, and He did die on a cross at a point of time in history, then, for all history past and all history future it is relevant because that is the very focal point for forgiveness and redemption. – Josh McDowell

109669. Jesus claimed He had the power to raise himself from the dead and His followers would be raised from the dead. That’s a unique claim in the literature of religion. – Josh McDowell

109670. Now, whenever you read any historical document, you always evaluate it in light of the historical context. – Josh McDowell

109671. On that Sunday morning the first thing that impressed the people who approached the tomb was the unusual position of the one and a half to two ton stone that had been lodged in front of the doorway. – Josh McDowell

109672. Paul the apostle recounted that Jesus appeared to more than 500 of His followers at one time, the majority of whom were still alive and who could confirm what Paul wrote. – Josh McDowell

109673. Prayer is talking with God. God knows your heart and is not so concerned with your words as He is with the attitude of your heart. – Josh McDowell

109674. The first thing that stuck in the minds of the disciples was not the empty tomb, but rather the empty grave clothes – undisturbed in form and position. – Josh McDowell

109675. The New Testament witnesses were fully aware of the background against which the resurrection took place. – Josh McDowell

109676. Where I once constantly lost my temper, I found myself arriving at a crisis and experiencing peace. – Josh McDowell

109677. I once had a lot of hatred, mainly toward my father, an alcoholic. – Josh McDowell

109678. Let’s not get too precious about it: actors are not heart surgeons or brain surgeons. We are just entertaining people. – Malcolm McDowell

109679. If, in a few months, I’m only number 8 or number 10 in the world, I’ll have to look at what off-the-court work I can do. I will need to do something if I want to be number 1. – John McEnroe

109680. I haven’t seen a professional player come out of New York in over 20 years since my brother Patrick came out. Blake spent a few years in Harlem, but he moved to Connecticut when he was a kid. – John McEnroe

109681. But these guys learn so fast now, they sort of soak up the information, they’re fearless. Those are the guys who learn from their mistakes and come back strong the next time. – John McEnroe

109682. Do you have any problems, other than that you’re unemployed, a moron, and a dork? – John McEnroe

109683. Everybody loves success, but they hate successful people. – John McEnroe

109684. The important thing is to learn a lesson every time you lose. Life is a learning process and you have to try to learn what’s best for you. Let me tell you, life is not fun when you’re banging your head against a brick wall all the time. – John McEnroe

109685. I had a similar year back in 1984 when I felt like I couldn’t lose. – John McEnroe

109687. I think it’s the mark of a great player to be confident in tough situations. – John McEnroe

109688. I think the players, I put in the book for example that we should go back to wood rackets, probably they laughed at me, I’m a dinosaur, but I think that you see these great players, have even more variety and you see more strategy, there’d be more subtlety. – John McEnroe

109689. I’d like to think I could have and should have won more, but that’s not the point. And I was at the point where I was playing great tennis in the mid 80s – the type of tennis people hadn’t seen before – and I was very proud of that. – John McEnroe

109690. If Roger stopped right now and never won another match, to me he’d already be one of the greatest players to ever play the game. To me, he’s the greatest all around talent that I’ve ever seen. – John McEnroe

109691. It means a lot to be back in New York. Particularly since one of the last senior event scheduled in the States was supposed to be here in New York. We were supposed to play in Central Park right after 9-11 and when 9-11 happened obviously things changed. – John McEnroe

109692. Well I think that’s probably one of a few, where I grew up in the City of New York, it’s got a lot of energy, my parents are Irish-American so there was a bit of yelling going on in my house but it seemed normal. – John McEnroe

109693. There’s something deeply satisfying when it succeeds, but I’m not going to do another book just to put my name on something and make some money if it’s not something I deeply care about. – John McEnroe

109694. Things slow down, the ball seems a lot bigger and you feel like you have more time. Everything computes – you have options, but you always take the right one. – John McEnroe

109695. This taught me a lesson, but I’m not quite sure what it is. – John McEnroe

109696. To be involved in a senior tournament back in the States is very satisfying. – John McEnroe

109697. We should reach out to people to try to go after the fans the way other sports do. Because we can’t just depend on the fact that it is a great game. – John McEnroe

109698. I’ll let the racket do the talking. – John McEnroe

109699. I believe there’s only one autobiography you can do. – John McEnroe

109700. I’ve got CDs in my car, listening all the time for that next song, because everybody’s looking. – Reba McEntire

109701. You know, I get a lot of people pitching songs to me. – Reba McEntire

109702. When onstage, I always try to take my audience through as many emotions as I possibly can. I want them to go from laughter to tears, be shocked and surprised and walk out the door with a renewed sense of themselves – and maybe a smile. – Reba McEntire

109703. To me, there’s two types of songs, good and bad. And I just like to stick with the good ones. – Reba McEntire

109704. So, we come out to Los Angeles. And we met with every network. We met with show runners, directors, writers, everything. And what we had an idea for, they didn’t like. And what they had an idea for, we didn’t like. So, we went home. – Reba McEntire

109705. So, I took lessons, and I love to shoot now. It’s a lot of fun. – Reba McEntire

109706. So, I think it has to do with the product and what you take to the public. If they like it, they’re going to come see you, and if they don’t, and if you’re kind of getting out of the trendy line of things, then they won’t come see you. – Reba McEntire

109707. My family, you know, are all still, you know, very close. We’re all still very close. Mom and Daddy are still alive. So, what more can you ask for? Your kids are healthy. – Reba McEntire

109708. I think it’s a wonderful time for a woman. – Reba McEntire

109709. Never have doubted it, even when the plane crash happened. I wasn’t mad at God. I just knew that there was a reason that I didn’t know about why it happened. – Reba McEntire

109710. For me, singing sad songs often has a way of healing a situation. It gets the hurt out in the open into the light, out of the darkness. – Reba McEntire

109711. I have learned a lot about myself and come to deal with a lot of things that, at first, bothered me. – Reba McEntire

109712. I think they want to keep it separate, but I’ve never been a crossover artist for some reason. – Reba McEntire

109713. I was singing a lot of waltzes. And I was with Jerry Kennedy, my producer, and he was playing me some songs, and he said, hey, I want to play you this song that I’m going to get Jackie Ward to record. – Reba McEntire

109714. I have talked to Debbie Hammond quite a bit, Jim Hammond’s wife, his widow. I’ve seen their kids. And last time we played Dallas, a lot of them came over. It’s hard for them to come see the show. It’s still hard. – Reba McEntire

109715. For no. 1, it’s great writing, super writing. The second thing is that it’s great chemistry with all the actors. We just all got along from the very start. Very get-go, we all got along. We just – it was just like we were all meant to be there together. – Reba McEntire

109716. Growing up is not being so dead-set on making everybody happy. – Reba McEntire

109717. I had lots of breaks. – Reba McEntire

109718. And so we were asleep there in San Diego. And our pilot called us. And his brother was on one of the other planes. And when he was leaving the airport, he saw in his rear view mirror that there was an explosion. – Reba McEntire

109719. And the two planes that were taking the band and crew that we had taken out to San Diego were flying out after the show. And so I was never supposed to be on that plane. – Reba McEntire

109720. Finding a good bus driver can be as important as finding a good musician. – Reba McEntire

109721. But I like to listen to demos. I like to hear the finished product. It’s like listening to a song – I mean, a story. If you’re going to sit here and tell me a story, I just like to listen. I don’t want to make them up. – Reba McEntire

109722. Besides, I’m a gypsy at heart and I like to travel around. – Reba McEntire

109723. Be different, stand out, and work your butt off. – Reba McEntire

109724. At this time when I turn 50, because so there’s many of my friends and family who didn’t get to see 50-years-old, and so, I’m celebrating for them too. – Reba McEntire

109725. I think it’s the way I talk. I think they thought I was too country. And I’m not ashamed of that by any means. – Reba McEntire

109726. By concentrating on what is good in people, by appealing to their idealism and their sense of justice, and by asking them to put their faith in the future, socialists put themselves at a severe disadvantage. – Ian Mcewan

109727. You enter a state of controlled passivity, you relax your grip and accept that even if your declared intention is to justify the ways of God to man, you might end up interesting your readers rather more in Satan. – Ian Mcewan

109728. Politics is the enemy of the imagination. – Ian Mcewan

109729. It is not the first duty of the novelist to provide blueprints for insurrection, or uplifting tales of successful resistance for the benefit of the opposition. The naming of what is there is what is important. – Ian Mcewan

109730. One has to have the courage of one’s pessimism. – Ian Mcewan

109731. Being named a great school at a great price means that we offer both high-quality academic programs and real affordability for families. We offer a personal touch that’s hard to match at a big school but without a big price tag. – David McFadden

109732. Outside of the chair, the teapot is the most ubiquitous and important design element in the domestic environment and almost everyone who has tackled the world of design has ended up designing one. – David McFadden

109733. I love a lot of things, and I’m pretty much obsessive about most things I do, whether it be gardening, or architecture, or music. I’d be an obsessive hairdresser. – Gates McFadden

109734. Life is so fast these days, and we’re exposed to so much information. Television makes us a witness to such misery. – Gates McFadden

109735. Just learning to think in another language allows you to see your own culture in a better viewpoint. – Gates McFadden

109736. The deal is that you can do it, you don’t really owe me anything, but at the end of it, I own the film. Then I can actually go out and reprint or not reprint if it I want. – Todd McFarlane

109737. Image has to be its own fortress, in spite of the owners. People can’t separate that or they don’t comprehend that you can turn that on and off for each one of the different entities. – Todd McFarlane

109738. You’ve got to let it go and say it was the best I could do at that time and place in my life. You hope that the thing you’re doing next is a little bit better. – Todd McFarlane

109739. To me, I was always just standing on the sidelines because up until issue 50, we were just doing Spawn. I wasn’t recruiting anybody because I didn’t have any books for people to work on. – Todd McFarlane

109740. I’m a guy who likes to watch something cool, creepy and suspenseful and there is no show to watch as an adult that would scare me at for even four seconds. – Todd McFarlane
