117419. I’m narrating the television series Biography. I’m still involved in my music – I have a new album out. I have an animated project in development. I’m writing a lot of things and you never know if one of them is going to become a six or seven year project. – Bill Mumy

117427. Babylon 5 is probably the biggest, most ambitious television science fiction series ever made. It’s one big novel told over five years with 110 different stories told within it. – Bill Mumy

117472. I’m about as Chinese as Herbert Hoover. – Paul Muni

117473. I don’t want to be a star. If you have to label me anything, I’m an actor – I guess. A journeyman actor. I think ‘star’ is what you call actors who can’t act. – Paul Muni

117474. A writer can write in an attic, or on top of a bus. Or with a sharp stick in some wet cement. To act, an actor has to have words. A stage. a camera turning. – Paul Muni

117476. Some kids are always getting into trouble or doing stuff, and I stay away from those types. I know I am no better than anyone else in this world. I’m just an actor, that’s nothing special. But I’m not into anything bad. Just blackjack. – Frankie Muniz

117477. Yeah, I like cars and basketball. But you know what I like more? Bananas. – Frankie Muniz

117489. In twenty years I’ve never had a day when I didn’t have to think about someone else’s needs. And this means the writing has to be fitted around it. – Alice Munro

117518. I didn’t want to be a writer, but I became one. And now I have many readers, in many countries. I think that’s a miracle. So I think I have to be humble regarding this ability. I’m proud of it and I enjoy it, and it is strange to say it this way, but I respect it. – Haruki Murakami

117519. I lost some of my friends because I got so famous, people who just assumed that I would be different now. I felt like everyone hated me. That is the most unhappy time of my life. – Haruki Murakami

117520. You can always make a film somehow. You can beg, borrow, steal the equipment, use credit cards, use your friends’ goodwill, wheedle your way into this or that situation. The real problem is, how do you get people to see it once it is made? – Walter Murch

117524. I think every age has a medium that talks to it more eloquently than the others. In the 19th century it was symphonic music and the novel. For various technical and artistic reasons, film became that eloquent medium for the 20th century. – Walter Murch

117586. Everyone is trying to do something that hasn’t been done and that’s a really good thing. You can only do so much with a story and some scripts don’t give you the opportunities and other scripts do give you the opportunities to do things that haven’t been done before. – Dennis Muren

117587. You know a lot of what worked on this was taken from Harry Potter 2, the little Doby character, we had a lot of our skin stuff worked out and that helped a lot. We have a lot of exchange happening. – Dennis Muren

117588. Yes, if I had it my way I would do all the shots myself – I used to do that when I was just a cameraman, an operator – but there’s no way; you can’t do that anymore. – Dennis Muren

117589. What you want to do is, you want to get away from people being afraid to show their work, which is the first thing, because they don’t want to be shot down. – Dennis Muren

117590. To me the biggest breakthrough was when we did Terminator 2 that just opened the door for Jurassic and all of the others and that was as big as when we did motion control on Star Wars. But I don’t see another big thing coming. – Dennis Muren

117591. Steven and I have worked together a lot and I’m far ahead of the curve than most people in knowing what he wants, but he knows far more than I know about what’s important for the story. So, most of the changes he will make will involve story changes. – Dennis Muren

117592. So much of it is the design of the shot or the motion of the character; it’s the work you do so that it has the same things that are in the movie. In just a few frames it’s got to communicate something clearly and dramatically. – Dennis Muren

117593. Other times you can get showy for three minutes, and that’s OK with certain films. But that isn’t right with an Ang Lee movie, you have to fit right in. You have to understand Ang, respect him and be part of the team and not be in charge of it – he is in charge of it. – Dennis Muren

117594. Just going along with this, what I did, or what I do is I imagine not being myself seeing it, but imagine somebody else who’s seeing it for the first time. – Dennis Muren

117595. It’s harder for me to work on a Forrest Gump kind of movie, where everything is invisible. – Dennis Muren

117596. But you don’t hire Ang Lee to do a typical children’s movie. But it’s such an interesting combination, whoever thought of getting Ang together with a comic book, that was just great. – Dennis Muren

117597. And I also trust that there’s more than one way to do something. – Dennis Muren

117598. And it’s very hard to do this stuff too because there are so many effects movies being done, so many companies busy doing this work and the public just wants to see it. Good work is being done all over the world. – Dennis Muren

117599. I just focus on one show, when this is over then I’ll start looking at what is coming up. – Dennis Muren

117600. Because you’re telling a story, and I’m sure people fifty years ago would tell the same story differently if they were telling it to you today. Because the time is different. The film is the work of today’s audience. – Dennis Muren

117601. I’m always reaching for something we really haven’t done, and War of the Worlds has a lot of this sort of documentary look to it and first-person camera view that is a new thing for me. I’ve done some stuff like that before, but nothing like the extent of this and digitally. – Dennis Muren

117602. I have never had trouble with any actor being able to visualise things. They are amazing. As long as you have your monster head on a long stick, so you can hold it up there and you can wave it around and let them see it and explain it to them, they are just great. – Dennis Muren

117603. I see the tool set being the same and maybe doing virtual movies and that’s fine for some stories but not for others. And maybe make all CG movies but they are already doing it. – Dennis Muren

117604. I think you’ve got to talk to the director, see the director’s films and recognise that it’s important that the work fits right in and see if as part of the movie. – Dennis Muren

117605. I took business classes as a back up but I made movies all the time. I would get my classes done in two days and then spend the rest of the time making my movies. – Dennis Muren

117606. And then you start getting into the technical side of it and the aesthetic side and with those areas you can come up with new ways to visualise things, new ways to render and use the computer to make things look different and new and stuff like that. – Dennis Muren

117622. I’m glad that it didn’t take as long to get Shepard off the ground as it’s taken this series. I’d begun to think the Congo would be ahead of us in the space race before Whispering Smith ever got on the air. – Audie Murphy

117629. If I could be a third of the woman that my mom is and have a third of the strength that she has, then I will have done good by this life. – Brittany Murphy

117630. I’ve always seen myself as one of those ‘show people.’ My earliest memories are wanting and needing to entertain people, like a gypsy traveler who goes from place to place, city to city, performing for audiences and reaching people. – Brittany Murphy

117631. I think they should take everyone who works for The National Enquirer and the Star, and everyone who works for Us Weekly, and put them all to work looking for terrorists. I think they would find the terrorists. All of them. It would be genius! – Brittany Murphy

117632. I find this life so interesting. – Brittany Murphy

117633. I don’t think Hollywood per se is supposed to be taken seriously, otherwise, dear Lord, that would be frightening. – Brittany Murphy

117639. There’s always competition out there. That’s what makes life exciting. – Carolyn Murphy

117640. It’s obvious that if you’re going to play a character you need to amass information about that person and about their environment or their era that they’re in and use as little or as much as necessary. – Cillian Murphy

117641. My wife can see always how a part affects me personally because she has to live with it. – Cillian Murphy

117642. The best roles you have to fight for. You have to really want to do it and you have to go after it. – Cillian Murphy

117643. Then I wanted the character to be feminine as opposed to effeminate. Because it’s easy to be camp or queen. Anyone can do that. What’s difficult is to play feminine. – Cillian Murphy

117644. What we do as actors is we go through phases where you superficially learn all this information. – Cillian Murphy

117645. I enjoy all aspects of it, I don’t have a preference for any medium. I think each of them has its attractions and I would hope they each inform the other in some way. – Cillian Murphy

117646. There’s a lot of comedy in Intermission but it’s got this depth. It’s not comedy for comedy’s sake – it’s informed by something else. I like stuff like that. – Cillian Murphy

117647. I’d love to work in America, some of my favourite films come from America. – Cillian Murphy

117648. I don’t think they’d ever make a movie about Chuck Baker but I’d love to play Chuck Baker. – Cillian Murphy

117650. Having started out in theatre, I feel an impulse to do it as much as I can. – Cillian Murphy

117651. At the moment I’m doing this space movie, so I’m obsessed with physics and space travel. I know three months down the line it’s gone. Then I’ll be able to superficially say stuff about space. – Cillian Murphy

117652. It was very much about performances, the whole ensemble thing was just great – everybody working together. Sometimes it didn’t feel like a film set. It wasn’t technically driven, it was very, very enjoyable. – Cillian Murphy

117653. Eddie Haas talked a lot about not hitting the ball in the air. – Dale Murphy

117654. Gee I don’t know, I just want to get home. – Dale Murphy

117656. Tommie Aaron taught me how to have a good attitude, to be easy going and not get uptight. – Dale Murphy

117657. My belief is the majority of people in politics are just interested in pursuing this career in politics, and doing what’s necessary to get themselves re-elected. And if that happens to coincide with the public good, great. But if it doesn’t, the public good loses out. – Dick Murphy

117658. You have the biggest impact on controlling, on affecting local lives as mayor. It’s so much more important than being a state legislator. – Dick Murphy

117659. Your first obligation, I suppose, is to your God. Your second is to your family. And your third is to your community. And you ought to try to fulfill all of those in your life. – Dick Murphy

117660. I’m convinced that unless you have some public financing of elections, you are never going to remove the power of wealthy interests over elected officials. – Dick Murphy

117661. At least I make decisions based on what I think is right, not who my friends might be. – Dick Murphy

117662. I don’t think that politics attracts the best and the brightest of America. It doesn’t attract the most sincere people. – Dick Murphy

117663. I’m not going to rule out running for a second term. But, I think you have to be psychologically prepared to walk away from the job after four years. It’s the only way that you cannot be influenced by those special interests. – Dick Murphy

117664. I’ve made 30 movies and for the most part my movies work. In a business where success is an exception and not the rule, I’ve mostly been successful. – Eddie Murphy

117665. You know, making a movie is a collaborative effort and sometimes all the ingredients don’t work out. I know that every now and again I am going to make a movie that won’t work. – Eddie Murphy

117671. I’m relaxed about my career. I’ve been making movies for over 20 years, so I’ve earned at least the right to relax. – Eddie Murphy

117672. I’m 42 and the age of a guy who has kids, so I guess I’m playing right where I’m supposed to be. I’m comfortable with that, but in the same breath I’d do something edgy. If someone came to me and offered me an edgy and funny story, then I’d do it. – Eddie Murphy

117677. This is courtship all the world over – the man all tongue; the woman all ears. – Emily Murphy

117696. Dance is so joyous. – Graeme Murphy

117697. But I also wanted to give them an intelligent emotional journey, without having to suspend reality – to be able to look at those characters and see reasons for the relationships and why what happens happens. – Graeme Murphy

117698. And dance is wonderful because dance is so immediate. – Graeme Murphy

117699. And currently, there are four to five new works in the pipeline for upcoming celebrations such as the Sydney 2000 Olympics, Australian Federation, my 50th Birthday, and Sydney Dance Company’s 25th Anniversary. – Graeme Murphy

117712. If the year 2000 can help us move into the future, that’s fine, but I am afraid that people see it as a full stop and that one can take a big breath afterwards – you can’t. – Graeme Murphy

117713. I’m interested in people who can take the movement somewhere. – Graeme Murphy

They’re definitely very serious about making money, and that’s not a wrong thing, but you don’t have to make money the same way all the time. – Bill Murray

117775. People only talk about what a joyous experience it is, but there is terror: Your life, as you know it, is over. It’s over the day that child is born. It’s over, and something completely new starts. – Bill Murray

117776. In Japan, you have no idea what they are saying, and they can’t help you either. Nothing makes any sense. They’re very polite, but you feel like a joke is being played on you the entire time you’re there. – Bill Murray

117777. I’m a nut, but not just a nut. – Bill Murray

117778. I went to Second City, where you learned to make the other actor look good so you looked good and National Lampoon, where you had to create everything out of nothing, and SNL, where you couldn’t make any mistakes, and you learned what collaboration was. – Bill Murray

117779. I think all phases of one’s career are serious if you take it seriously no matter if you are doing high profile dramatic pieces or not. – Bill Murray

117780. I don’t want to be that guy mumbling into his drink at a bar. – Bill Murray

117781. I don’t know how this guy knew how much money I was making. I didn’t know how much money I was making. – Bill Murray

117782. All of us kids ended up ‘doing Mom.’ There are four of us who’ve tried show business. Five if you insist on counting my sister the nun, who does liturgical dance. – Bill Murray

117783. Here’s the thing, you just have to drive a lot faster, and if you don’t get there, we’re both fired. – Bill Murray

117784. I think that the online world has actually brought books back. People are reading because they’re reading the damn screen. That’s more reading than people used to do. – Bill Murray

117785. I always want to say to people who want to be rich and famous: ‘try being rich first’. See if that doesn’t cover most of it. There’s not much downside to being rich, other than paying taxes and having your relatives ask you for money. But when you become famous, you end up with a 24-hour job. – Bill Murray

117786. I just want to be healthy and happy. I don’t want to hurt anybody or make them mad. If that’s a philosophy then that’s my philosophy. – Chad Michael Murray

117787. When you realize you’re alive, you can live life! – Chad Michael Murray

117788. It makes you feel at home when you can talk to somebody and really talk about anything. – Eddie Murray

117789. You win as a team, you lose as a team, you also do so many things together. – Eddie Murray

117790. When Ted Williams was here, inducted into the Hall of Fame 37 years ago, he said he must have earned it, because he didn’t win it because of his friendship with the writers. I guess in that way, I’m proud to be in this company that way. – Eddie Murray

117791. When I signed a contract, I was here to play 162 games. – Eddie Murray

117792. No one was more important than my mom and dad. I know they are watching from a place up in heaven here today to make sure all their kids are doing good. – Eddie Murray

117793. I’m proud to be here as a man that has played first base more than anybody in the game of baseball. – Eddie Murray

117794. I learned life from some good teachers. – Eddie Murray

117795. For me, baseball is about, again, the team winning. – Eddie Murray

117796. Baseball is a team game. – Eddie Murray

117797. And, you know, you try and preach to them there’s more to this game than just walking up to home plate, swinging the bat, fielding a ground ball. There’s some dedication in it, some love you’ve got to put into this work. – Eddie Murray

117798. And like I said, I appreciate my older brothers because they would not allow me to win. They made me learn to play with them, which I think is the most important thing that I learned. – Eddie Murray

117799. And I tell you that’s one of the reasons why I didn’t have the friendships with the media, maybe like I could have. But I had to do what I had to do to make myself successful. – Eddie Murray

117800. I’m now the hitting the instructor with the Cleveland Indians. – Eddie Murray

117801. Today I join the greatest players that played the game. It is a great feeling being here. – Eddie Murray

117802. With ‘Carousel’ I had an idea and it all came out quickly. – George Murray

117803. I was writing notes, but not composing poems. The Hunter began to develop out of this fragmented process. – George Murray

117804. I’m not interested in being easy anymore. Readable, yes. Easy, no. – George Murray

117805. I’ve often entertained paranoid suspicions about my fridge and what it’s been doing to my poetry when I’m not looking, but I never even considered that my fan was thinking about me. – George Murray

117806. In fact, in some ways, I actually feel much more confident about the quality of Carousel than I do about The Cottage Builder’s Letter: probably because of its cohesive nature. – George Murray

117807. In my opinion, Al Moritz may be the best poet of his generation in Canada. – George Murray

117808. My self-editing process is intense. – George Murray

117809. The poetry community here has been extraordinarily welcoming. – George Murray

117810. The whole competition thing disturbs me. Not that I wasn’t a part of it when I first started. – George Murray

117811. Well, we all start thinking we’re going to be Romantic rock stars, but then reality hits and you realize no one reads you but other poets. – George Murray

117812. I wanted to rock back and forth between myth and distant futures, yesterday, today, and tomorrow. It felt a bit like prophecy and a bit like storytelling. – George Murray

117813. It’s a bit of a crapshoot out there with young writers right now anyway. – George Murray

117814. Then I discovered I loved writing poetry more than fiction. – George Murray

117815. I am still interested in the long or serial poem, but have written a few smaller things. I may start sending to journals again in a year or so… that’s about it. – George Murray

117816. Even the people who have had success and made money writing these books of fiction seem to feel the need to pretend it’s no big deal, or part of a natural progression from poetry to fiction, but often it’s really just about the money, the perceived prestige. – George Murray

117817. I think, for me, humour needs to be used like a strong spice – sparingly. – George Murray

117818. I am certainly suffering from a modicum of performance anxiety. – George Murray

117819. I do try to let what is obviously unintended yet naturally good stay in. – George Murray

117820. New York was breaking my concentration and disintegrating my thoughts. – George Murray

117821. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with someone having to read a poem twice. Or even a book. – George Murray

117822. I feel as though I’ve fooled the world into thinking I’m an adult and now they’re letting me procreate. – George Murray

117823. I guess there is also an element of deliberate change involved. Each of my books has been, at least from my point of view, radically different from the last. – George Murray

117824. I no longer feel pressure to produce fiction. – George Murray

117825. Humour is a fine line to walk in poetry, as in fiction. I just think it’s harder to write. It’s harder to keep the respect of the reader too. – George Murray

117826. I still write the occasional short story, and poked at a novel once, but it’s just not what I want to do. – George Murray

117827. I suppress the vast majority of what I write. – George Murray

117828. I think the main influence has been living in New York City. Aside from all the crap around 9/11, I find it very demanding to think amid all the noise and visual pollution. – George Murray

117829. A sequence works in a way a collection never can. – George Murray

117830. Sometimes Aristotle analyses his terms, but very often he takes them for granted; and in the latter case, I think, he is sometimes deceived by them. – Gilbert Murray

117831. The fact is that much misunderstanding is often caused by our modern attempts to limit too strictly the meaning of a Greek word. – Gilbert Murray

117832. The fashions of the ages vary in this direction and that, but they vary for the most part from a central road which was struck out by the imagination of Greece. – Gilbert Murray

117833. The higher Greek poetry did not make up fictitious plots; its business was to express the heroic saga, the myths. – Gilbert Murray

117834. The life and liberty and property and happiness of the common man throughout the world are at the absolute mercy of a few persons whom he has never seen, involved in complicated quarrels that he has never heard of. – Gilbert Murray

117835. Where words can be translated into equivalent words, the style of an original can be closely followed; but no translation which aims at being written in normal English can reproduce the style of Aristotle. – Gilbert Murray

117836. It is doubtless one of Aristotle’s great services that he conceived so clearly the truth that literature is a thing that grows and has a history. – Gilbert Murray

117837. Be careful in dealing with a man who cares nothing for comfort or promotion, but is simply determined to do what he believes to be right. He is a dangerous uncomfortable enemy, because his body, which you can always conquer, gives you little purchase upon his soul. – Gilbert Murray

117838. Few of the great works of ancient Greek literature are easy reading. – Gilbert Murray

117839. Greek was very much a live language, and a language still unconscious of grammar, not, like ours, dominated by definitions and trained upon dictionaries. – Gilbert Murray

117840. Show me a man who is a good loser and I’ll show you a man who is playing golf with his boss. – James Patrick Murray

117841. Baseball is a game where a curve is an optical illusion, a screwball can be a pitch or a person, stealing is legal and you can spit anywhere you like except in the umpire’s eye or on the ball. – James Patrick Murray

117842. Sometimes a serendipitous reaction occurs when a network asks you if you have any ideas for a series, at a time when your creative flow is working in that direction. – Joe Murray

117843. Somebody said us artists have trouble with success because art is derived from struggle. I disagree with that, because truely doing your art is success, whether you make money from it or not. – Joe Murray

117844. Since this was the first and only series I had ever produced, I was unaware of what the “Normal” environment was for a studio. I tried to run it as I did in my SF studio. – Joe Murray

117845. Marriage should be a duet – when one sings, the other claps. – Joe Murray

117846. I think cheese smells funny, but I feel bananas “are” funny. I’m assuming Swamp told the whole story of the executives seriously asking us to replace the banana with cheese because they thought it was funnier. – Joe Murray

117847. Sometimes things just click. The one contribution I tried to do, was shield the staff from the corporate politics that occur on any show. But yes, we all got along very well. – Joe Murray

117848. Anyone who knows me, knows I don’t walk away from a commitment, but I had a commitment to myself. Yes, there were times Nickelodeon made it more difficult than it needed to be, but there were also times they made it easier. – Joe Murray

117849. I was shocked. They were going to give me money to make this really odd show? Well, I still had little thought of it going to series, but I thought it was great that my next short film was going to be paid for. – Joe Murray

117850. I am constantly getting letters from inconsistancies in the back stories of these characters. – Joe Murray

117851. We’re the real estate industry – not the manufacturers. – Joe Murray

117852. When an executive walked on our floor, it was at their own risk. As far as what others thought of working for me, I know I was very tough at times, and would storm down the hall after watching some bad animation from Korea. But overall, I feel we had a good time. – Joe Murray

117853. When I speak to students and they ask how much money you can make in art, as if that is a reason to persue it, I tell them to do something else. – Joe Murray

117854. I do not feel any artist can produce great art without putting great personality into it. It is always a piece of you that goes on the screen or the canvass. – Joe Murray

117855. The friend that I based Heffer on was adopted, and it all played into his total personality. – Joe Murray

117856. I’d like to see an arrested growth of development. You can’t stop it, but it’s important we do something about the developers having the upper hand. – John Murray

117857. Development in this county is always going to be an issue. Until development and zoning are handled on a regional basis, rather than each municipality left to its own devices, we will suffer from developers having the upper hand in suits and in front of zoning boards. – John Murray

117858. Give the people not hell, but hope and courage. – John Murray

117859. It’s nice to have a lot of people in the field. Independent, third party, Libertarian, Reform and other party candidates can do what they want to do. I welcome them to the race. – John Murray

117860. So I will stand more steadfastly for the things I stand up for, like people who work for a living. I’d like to be able to stand that way when I go to Congress. – John Murray

117861. Taking Big Bird away from our five year olds, lunch money away from our ten year olds, job training programs away from our fifteen year olds, and college loans away from our twenty year olds is a disgrace. – John Murray

117862. They see themselves as athletes and only athletes. – John Murray

117863. Education, when delivered properly, can benefit a lot of people and make productive citizens out of those otherwise given no hope. – John Murray

117864. All elections revolve around and are often resolved by who raises the most money. That’s unfair. I’d like to see that process changed, but it seems once you win and get to Congress, that doesn’t happen. – John Murray

117865. The pain of retirement means loss. – John Murray

117866. Having said that, I enjoyed every minute of my time and I got a degree of job satisfaction which I am sure was far greater than the majority of my colleagues. – Len G. Murray

117867. The option of solicitor advocacy came on the scene a bit too late for me. – Len G. Murray

117868. One cannot imagine Scots music and song without the contribution of Burns. – Len G. Murray

117869. If I was starting off now, I would probably have taken one or two different turnings along the way. – Len G. Murray

117870. I think that practising the law, particularly litigation, and particularly in Glasgow, has always been difficult enough without adding to it by having problems with professional colleagues or former colleagues. – Len G. Murray

117871. For in the works of Robert Burns we see the whole cosmos of man’s experience and emotion, from zenith to nadir, from birth until death. – Len G. Murray

117872. Besides, I always thought that one of the great attractions of practising law was what I like to call the collegiality of the profession and I think that duty of collegiality applies even when we are retired. – Len G. Murray

117873. And thus it was that I started to wonder why Robert Burns is so important to us. We have other poets, and other writers, and other heroes, yet we do not afford them the veneration that we afford to Robert Burns. – Len G. Murray

117874. And on 25 January of each year and for many days before it and after it there is not an hour in the day or night when a Burns Supper is not taking place somewhere on this earth. – Len G. Murray

117875. If anyone ever asked me what I had to complain about it would not have taken long to tell them. Maybe I was just easily pleased. – Len G. Murray

117876. There are even more statues of Robert Burns than of any other figure in world literature. Indeed if we discount figures of religion, then only Christopher Columbus has more statues than he worldwide. – Len G. Murray

117877. There does not seem to be that collegiality I referred to, there seems to be much more of a them versus us attitude, rather than we all have a role to play in this process so let’s get on with it. – Len G. Murray

117878. I guess my enthusiasm kind of rubs off on people. – Margaret Murray

117879. I’m so picky. People hate going to the movies with me. – Margaret Murray

117880. The trend of all knowledge at the present is to specialize, but archaeology has in it all the qualities that call for the wide view of the human race, of its growth from the savage to the civilized, which is seen in all stages of social and religious development. – Margaret Murray

117881. I’ve had bad luck with both my wives. The first one left me and the second one didn’t. – Patrick Murray

117882. The only difference between a dead skunk lying in the road and a dead lawyer lying in the road is that there are skid marks around the skunk. – Patrick Murray

117883. A Lawyer will do anything to win a case, sometimes he will even tell the truth. – Patrick Murray

117884. Any political party that includes the word ‘democratic’ in its name, isn’t. – Patrick Murray

117885. For the state of our union to be strong, we need to place value in Americans. – Patty Murray

117886. Funding privatized accounts with Social Security dollars would not only make the program’s long term problems worse, but many believe it represents a first step toward undermining the program’s fundamental goals. – Patty Murray

117887. Good education means learning to read, write and most importantly learn how to learn so that you can be whatever you want to be when you grow up. – Patty Murray

117888. Guess what – I am one of the ONLY senators in the whole United States Senate that is computer literate! – Patty Murray

117889. If the Republicans get control back of the United States Senate, we will no longer have a check and balance on the White House, on the Republican Congress. – Patty Murray

117890. Security is still the most important issue facing Washington state residents and millions of Americans – the security of having a job, of access to affordable health care, of a quality education, and of protecting our homeland and defending our nation. – Patty Murray

117891. The FDA is redefining birth control as abortion. The FDA is setting the bar higher for this kind of drug. – Patty Murray

117892. We haven’t been out in many of these countries helping them build infrastructure. How would they look at us today if we had been there helping them with some of that, rather than just being the people who are going to bomb in Iraq and go to Afghanistan? – Patty Murray

117893. Caring for our veterans is the duty of a grateful nation. Unfortunately, the Bush administration and congressional Republicans have not lived up to this duty. – Patty Murray

117894. I was able to interpret the difference between the sharp, quick sound and the slow, deep sound of percussion and manipulate it, get a third sound out of things, if the beats were rapid enough. – Sunny Murray

117895. And when I play they know I exist, and it leaves a space when I go. – Sunny Murray

117896. Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. – W. H. Murray

117897. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. – W. H. Murray

117898. The more the soul knows, the more she loves, and loving much, she tastes much. – W. H. Murray

117899. No one can terrorize a whole nation, unless we are all his accomplices. – Edward R. Murrow

117900. We must not confuse dissent with disloyalty. When the loyal opposition dies, I think the soul of America dies with it. – Edward R. Murrow

117901. We cannot make good news out of bad practice. – Edward R. Murrow

117902. We cannot defend freedom abroad by deserting it at home. – Edward R. Murrow

117903. To be persuasive we must be believable; to be believable we must be credible; credible we must be truthful. – Edward R. Murrow

117904. The speed of communications is wondrous to behold. It is also true that speed can multiply the distribution of information that we know to be untrue. – Edward R. Murrow

117905. The politician in my country seeks votes, affection and respect, in that order. With few notable exceptions, they are simply men who want to be loved. – Edward R. Murrow

117906. The obscure we see eventually. The completely obvious, it seems, takes longer. – Edward R. Murrow

117907. The newest computer can merely compound, at speed, the oldest problem in the relations between human beings, and in the end the communicator will be confronted with the old problem, of what to say and how to say it. – Edward R. Murrow

117908. People say conversation is a lost art; how often I have wished it were. – Edward R. Murrow

117909. Most truths are so naked that people feel sorry for them and cover them up, at least a little bit. – Edward R. Murrow

117910. Anyone who isn’t confused really doesn’t understand the situation. – Edward R. Murrow

117911. Our major obligation is not to mistake slogans for solutions. – Edward R. Murrow

117912. A satellite has no conscience. – Edward R. Murrow

117913. Difficulty is the excuse history never accepts. – Edward R. Murrow

117914. Everyone is a prisoner of his own experiences. No one can eliminate prejudices – just recognize them. – Edward R. Murrow

117915. Fame is morally neutral. – Edward R. Murrow

117916. Good night, and good luck. – Edward R. Murrow

117917. If we were to do the Second Coming of Christ in color for a full hour, there would be a considerable number of stations which would decline to carry it on the grounds that a Western or a quiz show would be more profitable. – Edward R. Murrow

117918. Just because your voice reaches halfway around the world doesn’t mean you are wiser than when it reached only to the end of the bar. – Edward R. Murrow

117919. Just once in a while let us exalt the importance of ideas and information. – Edward R. Murrow

117920. A reporter is always concerned with tomorrow. There’s nothing tangible of yesterday. All I can say I’ve done is agitate the air ten or fifteen minutes and then boom – it’s gone. – Edward R. Murrow

117921. Belize pledges it continued support to the aspirations of the 23 million people of Taiwan to be full participants in all organs and agencies of the international community. – Said Musa

117922. Independence did not mean chauvinism and narrow nationalism. – Said Musa

117923. Let us work toward greater cooperation with all Caribbean Countries, whether we speak English, Dutch, French or Spanish, whether we are independent or not, and whether we be island or continental territories. – Said Musa

117924. None can be more negative in its impact than the limitation on human resource capacity. – Said Musa

117925. Our Government is committed to pursuing policies and programs which facilitate a further lowering of the interest rates in order to fuel investment and growth. We call on the commercial banks to partner with us in this effort. – Said Musa

117926. We have much work ahead, to stand still. – Said Musa

117927. Perceive that which cannot be seen with the eye. – Miyamoto Musashi

117928. Study strategy over the years and achieve the spirit of the warrior. Today is victory over yourself of yesterday; tomorrow is your victory over lesser men. – Miyamoto Musashi

117929. All things entail rising and falling timing. You must be able to discern this. – Miyamoto Musashi

117930. Do nothing which is of no use. – Miyamoto Musashi

117935. Smith and Carlos aside, I object to using the Olympic awards stand to make a political statement. – Brent Musburger

117936. You are watching what greatness, is all about. – Brent Musburger

117938. May the soul of the late President Milton Obote… a long-time member of this parliament, rest in peace. – Yoweri Museveni

117939. What is the Geneva Convention on wars! I have never read it. – Yoweri Museveni

117941. I’ve never heard an agency say, ‘Unless you industrialize I will not support you’. – Yoweri Museveni

117942. We used to fight the LRA with only one dimensional force that only walks on foot, but now, we have got multiple forces to fight the rebels. – Yoweri Museveni

117943. If we ever start communicating with living creatures from other planets, the number one priority is, how are you going to communicate information? Even between different cultures here on Earth, you get into communication problems. – Story Musgrave

117944. When you’re looking that far out, you’re giving people their place in the universe, it touches people. Science is often visual, so it doesn’t need translation. It’s like poetry, it touches you. – Story Musgrave

117945. There really isn’t a time to pause and have a celebration. I feel so serious about the whole thing. – Story Musgrave

117946. Their spirituality was in nature, even though Emerson was a preacher on the pulpit, he ended up going out into nature for direct, face-to-face communication with God, if you want to call all of this creation part of God. – Story Musgrave

117947. The way you remember the past depends upon your hope for the future. And if what you see in your future has no hope, it has no potential, then you view the past that brought you to here as not very good. – Story Musgrave

117948. The statistics of life out there and the statistics of intelligent beings and advanced civilization is a certainty, the way I look at it. that It has not been accepted, because we’ve been in an anthropocentric era. – Story Musgrave

117949. That I learned even as a three year-old that I see this world that is really a mess and I learned to say, this is not me. I am not the one that is messed up. It is out there. – Story Musgrave

117950. It’s hard to say what drives a three year-old, but I think I had a sense that nature was my solace, and nature was a place in which there was beauty, in which there was order. – Story Musgrave

117951. Most of our history in space has been communicated in terms of action – what people do, a chronological list of events which have transpired – as opposed to the human experience of having done those things. – Story Musgrave

117952. Poetry is its own medium; it’s very different than writing prose. Poetry can talk in an imagistic sense, it has particular ways of catching an environment. – Story Musgrave

117953. I’m such a long-term investor, I’ve never really let go and celebrated what I did with the Hubble telescope. – Story Musgrave

117954. I would have taken whatever hand I was dealt. Space was it. – Story Musgrave

117955. I think there are huge lessons there, for young people who are getting started in life, as well as other people. And that is, to take responsibility for your own life. Only you are responsible for the course you take from there. – Story Musgrave

117956. I never read a single book as a child. I did not read as a child. I worked on the farm. I had books in the classroom, but that was it. I never read a single book outside of the classroom. – Story Musgrave

117957. I have a great relationship with animals, and with children. I get to their level. I try to see the way a child looks at the world, it’s hugely different. – Story Musgrave

117958. I feel particularly close to them, because I am now out in the universe. I’m in a position to see nature from another point of view, to be outside the earth and see the big picture. – Story Musgrave

117959. I didn’t wish those tragedies upon the people who played them out. It was certainly tragic for them, but not for me. All of those things brought me to where I am. Without those things, I couldn’t be who I am, I wouldn’t be here. – Story Musgrave

117960. And so, I was not a military test pilot, but as soon as NASA expressed an interest in flying scientists and people who were not military test pilots, that was an epiphany that just came like a stroke of lightning. – Story Musgrave

117961. I’ve already written 300 space poems. But I look upon my ultimate form as being a poetic prose. When you read it, it appears to be prose, but within the prose you have embedded the techniques of poetry. – Story Musgrave

117962. Remember that mindsets can not be changed through force and coercion. No idea can ever be forcibly thrust upon any one. – Pervez Musharraf

117963. Who has suffered? The families of the dead, no doubt. But a greater loss was inflicted on Pakistan because, as I said, we lost the pillars of our society. – Pervez Musharraf

117964. We claim Islam as Deen or a complete way of life. – Pervez Musharraf
