113829. You know, the pessimism which exists now in the Middle East existed in Northern Ireland, but we stayed at it. – George J. Mitchell

113830. My father was the orphaned son of immigrants to the United States from Ireland. My father never knew his parents. His mother died – we’re not sure – either at or shortly after his birth, and he and all of his siblings were placed in orphanages in the Boston area. – George J. Mitchell

113831. My parents were very poor, but we never felt any sense of need or want. It was a very close, loving, tightly-knit family growing up, and I never felt any sense of deprivation or anything like that. – George J. Mitchell

113848. Back then, I didn’t have a big organization around me. I was just a kid with a guitar, traveling around. My responsibility basically was to the art, and I had extra time on my hands. There is no extra time now. There isn’t enough time. – Joni Mitchell

113849. Buddy Holly and the early rock ‘n’ roll was no lighter than the way I play. It’s very minimal. – Joni Mitchell

113851. I can’t remember anything I ever wrote. – Joni Mitchell

113854. I learned a woman is never an old woman. – Joni Mitchell

113855. At the point where I’m trying to force something and it’s not happening, and I’m getting frustrated with, say, writing a poem, I can go and pick up the brushes and start painting. At the point where the painting seems to not be going anywhere, I go and pick up the guitar. – Joni Mitchell

113856. I’ve got 50 different tunings in the guitar. – Joni Mitchell

113862. I have one piece of music, since 1997, and I don’t see it having lyrics. Where does it go in this world? So I haven’t recorded it. – Joni Mitchell

113863. You have this mounting aggressive ignorance with the rabbit’s foot of their particular religion. You don’t really have any kind of spiritual law, just a kind of a rabid mental illness. The songs are a little slice of life. – Joni Mitchell

113864. You could write a song about some kind of emotional problem you are having, but it would not be a good song, in my eyes, until it went through a period of sensitivity to a moment of clarity. Without that moment of clarity to contribute to the song, it’s just complaining. – Joni Mitchell

113868. We have a war dictator who was not elected, he snuck in. so he punishes people that threaten him in any way, or even say something he doesn’t like. It has no resemblance to democracy. – Joni Mitchell

113869. This is a nation that has lost the ability to be self-critical, and that makes a lie out of the freedoms. – Joni Mitchell

113870. There was this mountain village in Russia where my music was getting in on some German radio station. I remember this because music used to get up to Saskatchewan from Texas. Late at night after the local station closed down. – Joni Mitchell

113871. There are things to confess that enrich the world, and things that need not be said. – Joni Mitchell

113872. The more decadent a culture gets, the more they have a need for what they don’t have at all, which is innocence, so you end up with kiddie porn and a perverse obsession with youth. – Joni Mitchell

113873. The Beginning of Survival is my best album. I am very proud of it, and I am surprised at it, too. I thought some of Travelogue was a little heavy, but I don’t think this is heavy. – Joni Mitchell

113874. Sorrow is so easy to express and yet so hard to tell. – Joni Mitchell

113875. Nobody understood The Reoccurring Dream, but after September 11, when we were coerced to do a national duty and go out and shop, surely people could begin to see what I was getting at. – Joni Mitchell

113876. I think I would go further into fine arts, I think, if I were to continue. – Joni Mitchell

113882. I was always the class clown. – Kel Mitchell

113883. I was a drama major also so it’s cool to cuss for meaning, but for no apparent reason, no. – Kel Mitchell

113884. I passed up a lot of work ’cause a lot of movies that may be out there right now I passed em up because there may have been a lot of cussin’ in ’em. – Kel Mitchell

113885. I loved Spider-Man, Spider-Man was the man. – Kel Mitchell

113886. I did a lot of theater in the South side of Chicago. – Kel Mitchell

113892. If it wasn’t for my drama teacher, I wouldn’t be here right now. – Kel Mitchell

113893. Invisible Boy was fun. Everybody else’s character, they knew where they were at already as a superhero. But invisible boy’s character, you kind of grow up with him within the movie. – Kel Mitchell

113895. I’m doing music, and we both want to do some drama. – Kel Mitchell

113901. With enough courage, you can do without a reputation. – Margaret Mitchell

113924. There is no cosmetic for beauty like happiness. – Maria Mitchell

113938. I am just through with a summer, and a summer is to me always a trying ordeal. – Maria Mitchell

113940. I have just gone over my comet computations again, and it is humiliating to perceive how very little more I know than I did seven years ago when I first did this kind of work. – Maria Mitchell

113944. Every formula which expresses a law of nature is a hymn of praise to God. – Maria Mitchell

113945. We have a hunger of the mind which asks for knowledge of all around us, and the more we gain, the more is our desire; the more we see, the more we are capable of seeing. – Maria Mitchell

113948. Reason can be used only when looking critically back. – Peter D. Mitchell

113949. The final outcome cannot be known, either to the originator of a new theory, or to his colleagues and critics, who are bent on falsifying it. Thus, the scientific innovator may feel all the more lonely and uncertain. – Peter D. Mitchell

113950. This city can be kind of brutal, so you see your dreams from every different angle, but ultimately it’s about acting and if you enjoy acting, you will always enjoy acting. – Radha Mitchell

113954. I’m not working now, so I’m sort of facing the unknown. – Radha Mitchell

113955. It was kind of scary because working with Woody Allen becomes sort of a big deal in your mind. He directs in that Woody Allen character some of the time – he has these idiosyncrasies that are really charming and funny. – Radha Mitchell

113956. Life is neither comedy or tragedy, life is what you make of it. – Radha Mitchell

113957. New York in a way functions as another character within the story, as it does within most of Woody Allen’s stories. – Radha Mitchell

113958. Revenge is a way of life and definitely some thing that we identify with. We all feel cheated in some way about some thing and how nice it would be to do something about it. I mean ultimately it’s not the most Christian of sentiments. – Radha Mitchell

113959. I think my parents see my life now as very conservative. – Radha Mitchell

113960. So wearing a corset certainly changes your state of mind. – Radha Mitchell

113961. We don’t relate to her too much because you don’t want the heroic character to not be heroic. – Radha Mitchell

113962. To be honest, it’s easier for me to speak with an American accent. – Radha Mitchell

113963. We’ve become much more casual and much more relaxed in social interactions, where there was a formality and maybe a kind of respect at that time that doesn’t exist now. – Radha Mitchell

113964. Yeah I think Pitch Black was edgy, I think that’s what worked for our film. – Radha Mitchell

113965. So I was in America and I thought I’ll stick around while I’m here and just see what happens. The next film I did was High Art, so I guess it started with a sort of vague idea but really just a fantasy. – Radha Mitchell

113966. For me, even just being English was a whole sort of experience in as much as I’m Australian. – Radha Mitchell

113967. I think in this, definitely, because you are feeling how it felt to live in a completely different time. The mannerisms and the way that people behaved was quite different. – Radha Mitchell

113968. Well, obviously I was excited by the idea that Woody Allen was going to direct it. But at the same time, the script itself and the character was really interesting. – Radha Mitchell

113969. After that, I was offered lots of lesbian roles, but I didn’t want them because I’d already played the best there was. – Radha Mitchell

113970. As much as most of the actors were kind of curious to know what their character meant in relation to the script and to the plot, they really were quite happy to be part of the adventure of not knowing. – Radha Mitchell

113971. Because in Australia there really isn’t a lot to do. There aren’t a lot of opportunities. – Radha Mitchell

113972. But in this case, he had my cell phone and my phone was ringing and I had just come back from Australia on the plane and I thought it was my mum and it was Woody Allen just checking to see if I wanted to be in his movie. – Radha Mitchell

113973. I didn’t even understand the whole idea of Hollywood. – Radha Mitchell

113974. I do Yoga. I’d like to say I do it every morning, but I don’t, I just don’t have the time. – Radha Mitchell

113975. I do, too, most recently while I was singing karaoke in some weird bar. – Radha Mitchell

113976. I don’t smoke and I don’t drink alcohol. – Radha Mitchell

113977. I guess when I first started speaking with an American accent, there’s a tendency to create a caricature of the accent because you just exaggerate the pieces that stand out to you. – Radha Mitchell

113978. I had a friend, and we always used to pretend to be twins. We had this fantasy about going to Hollywood together. We were about four. – Radha Mitchell

113979. I just don’t talk about who I’m going out with, that’s it. It’s an odd thing to sit around describing yourself to 10 different people every 5 minutes yet it’s kind of therapeutic in a way. – Radha Mitchell

113980. I mean normally you have your agent call the other agent and all the agents talk and then finally you get a phone call and you hear some misrepresentation of what someone else had to say. – Radha Mitchell

113981. I never wanted to be a movie star. – Radha Mitchell

113982. But I’m also a vegetarian so there’s another factor I guess. – Radha Mitchell

113983. I’ve always been interested in shaping music in odd ways, with odd riffs and that’s been probably something that I’ve continued on with my studies with improvisation as I’m working with people. – Roscoe Mitchell

113984. I remember times when the whole music scene was just flourishing. – Roscoe Mitchell

113985. I’m approaching a period in my life though where I’d like to be totally absorbed into music, doing concerts, writing something. Basically, that IS what I am doing. – Roscoe Mitchell

113986. You have to know composition to be a good improviser. – Roscoe Mitchell

113987. If you listen to nature, all the sounds are done in a confident way. I’m trying to do that. – Roscoe Mitchell

113988. I just consider myself a student, trying to learn more about it. – Roscoe Mitchell

113989. I felt that I had been influenced by being in the city enough and I wanted to go off by myself to see what was going on. I remember going out there and looking in the mirror and thinking I wasn’t anything. – Roscoe Mitchell

113990. I don’t like to box myself in when I’m composing. – Roscoe Mitchell

113991. I always try to think of a vocabulary to match different musical situations. – Roscoe Mitchell

113992. I like to hear melodies that go from one extreme to the next- saxophone to a bell to a whistle, for instance. – Roscoe Mitchell

113993. What I try to impart to a musician is to really try to practice the instrument in a really sincere way. Learn as much about music as you possibly can. Learn composition. Study to try to create compositions of your own and put your own personal touch on your music. – Roscoe Mitchell

113994. As much as everyone wants to downplay racism, it exists. There’s a great mistrust among some African-Americans of white people. – Steve Mitchell

113996. Comedy comes from conflict, from hatred. – Warren Mitchell

113997. I enjoy being Jewish, but I’m an atheist… I hate fundamentalism in all its forms. Jews, Catholics, Baptists, I think they are all potty and capable of destroying the world. – Warren Mitchell
