120813. The best thing going for us is Al Gore. I cannot conceive how the American people could elect him. On the other hand, I couldn’t conceive how they could elect a Jimmy Carter or Bill Clinton – especially Clinton in ’96. – Lyn Nofziger

120814. That government is not a necessary good but an unavoidable evil. – Lyn Nofziger

120815. That foreign trade should be fair rather than free. – Lyn Nofziger

120816. Several things about Reagan are unusual in a public man. He was not a typical politician at all, but a private man in public life. – Lyn Nofziger

120817. He and Reagan were not at all alike, because Reagan is an optimist and Dick Nixon wasn’t. Yet in some ways they were alike. Neither really liked to talk on the telephone, for instance. And, in a lot of respects, both of them were very much loners. – Lyn Nofziger

120818. Most politicians – those people who live, eat and breathe politics – like to sit around and talk about politics and tell political war stories. Reagan didn’t do that. His war stories were movie war stories and Hollywood war stories. He loved that. – Lyn Nofziger

120819. I’m not a social friend of the Reagans. That’s by their choice and by mine. They don’t drink enough. – Lyn Nofziger

120820. Government should work to insure the rights of the individual, not plot to take them away. – Lyn Nofziger

120821. I don’t like government, it’s just that simple. – Lyn Nofziger

120822. The executive branch has grown too strong, the judicial branch too arrogant and the legislative branch too stupid. – Lyn Nofziger

120823. I sometimes lie awake at night trying to think of something funny that Richard Nixon said. – Lyn Nofziger

120824. I cannot show remorse because I do not believe I am guilty. – Lyn Nofziger

120825. One of the things that bothers me most is the growing belief in the country that security is more important than freedom. It ain’t. – Lyn Nofziger

120827. The best actors instinctively feel out what the other actors need, and they just accommodate it. – Christopher Nolan

120828. As soon as television became the only secondary way in which films were watched, films had to adhere to a pretty linear system, whereby you can drift off for ten minutes and go and answer the phone and not really lose your place. – Christopher Nolan

120829. I think of painting without subject matter as music without words. – Kenneth Noland

120830. I’ve also been willing to share any help that I could give to any other artist. – Kenneth Noland

120831. With artists of my own generation there was at first no group identity – and never a clique. – Kenneth Noland

120832. Usually I throw away what I don’t get right the first time. – Kenneth Noland

120833. The scene then as now was centered in New York. For the most part, I’ve kept a bit apart from that attractive and seductive city. I’ve done it by living in the country within commuting distance. – Kenneth Noland

120834. In the ’50s Morris Louis and I were not known, David Smith and Helen Frankenthaler were not much known. – Kenneth Noland

120835. As time goes on, I realize more and more that, beginning in the early 30’s, David Smith began setting the precedent for what was to come later for many of us. – Kenneth Noland

120836. For me context is the key – from that comes the understanding of everything. – Kenneth Noland

120837. Context begins with other artists – seniors and mentors. – Kenneth Noland

120838. Clem had made it known that Pollock was a great painter. – Kenneth Noland

120839. Because of this the representation I’m interested in is of those things only the eye can touch. – Kenneth Noland

120840. Pollock was well known, certainly, but for all the wrong reasons. He was known as much for being wild and unconventional in his working methods as for being a great artist. – Kenneth Noland

120841. I met David Smith through my former wife, Cornelia, who’d studied with him. – Kenneth Noland

120842. Art is exalted above religion and race. Not a single solitary soul these days believes in the religions of the Assyrians, the Egyptians and the Greeks… Only their art, whenever it was beautiful, stands proud and exalted, rising above all time. – Emil Nolde

120843. Clever people master life; the wise illuminate it and create fresh difficulties. – Emil Nolde

120844. The art of an artist must be his own art. It is… always a continuous chain of little inventions, little technical discoveries of one’s own, in one’s relation to the tool, the material and the colors. – Emil Nolde

120845. The artist need not know very much; best of all let him work instinctively and paint as naturally as he breathes or walks. – Emil Nolde

120846. What an artist learns matters little. What he himself discovers has a real worth for him, and gives him the necessary incitement to work. – Emil Nolde

120850. A life of frustration is inevitable for any coach whose main enjoyment is winning. – Chuck Noll

120851. The key to a winning season is focusing on one opponent at a time. Winning one week at a time. Never look back and never look ahead. – Chuck Noll

120852. It’s not pleasant when you lose your whole football team. – Chuck Noll

120853. Of all the joys that lighten suffering earth, what joy is welcomed like a newborn child? – Dorothy L. Nolte

120854. Now, there is always a tremendous fear of science and progressing forward into areas of the unknown and it is a valid fear. Some of the genetic alterations of food are a little edgy. – Nick Nolte

120855. You have to struggle a bit, hustle a little, and be willing to go bankrupt. Once you’re willing to do that, everything opens up and you get the freedom. My joke is that next year, I’ll make the first film that costs zero dollars. – Nick Nolte

120856. We truly have an ancient part of the brain that was about survival when we were prey but we seem to have gone past prey. We eat everything and nothing eats us. – Nick Nolte

120857. If you’re older you want to tell stories about the pool of human life and living and to communicate, not only to your age group but to do an age group that can begin to understand, that has enough experience of life far beyond the taste of life. – Nick Nolte

120858. If you feel you have a film that’s valid, you stick your ass on the line. – Nick Nolte

120859. I never felt comfortable in real life very well. It’s always been an awkward kind of thing for me and so when I hit the stage I just sensed freedom. I sensed here’s a place that I can have all the experiences of life and not feel uncomfortable about it. – Nick Nolte

120860. When you are making the one you are doing, you think it is the greatest film going. And then you do another one and it is a great film. – Nick Nolte

120861. People in the U.S. like good baseball, whether you’re on the home team or not. – Hideo Nomo

120862. Don’t fall in love with politicians, they’re all a disappointment. They can’t help it, they just are. – Peggy Noonan

120863. If you commit a big crime then you are crazy, and the more heinous the crime the crazier you must be. Therefore you are not responsible, and nothing is your fault. – Peggy Noonan

120864. I think miracles exist in part as gifts and in part as clues that there is something beyond the flat world we see. – Peggy Noonan

120865. I love eulogies. They are the most moving kind of speech because they attempt to pluck meaning from the fog, and on short order, when the emotions are still ragged and raw and susceptible to leaps. – Peggy Noonan

120866. Beware the politically obsessed. They are often bright and interesting, but they have something missing in their natures; there is a hole, an empty place, and they use politics to fill it up. It leaves them somehow misshapen. – Peggy Noonan

120867. A great speech is literature. – Peggy Noonan

120868. Candor is a compliment; it implies equality. It’s how true friends talk. – Peggy Noonan

120869. Abortion is either OK or it’s not. – Peggy Noonan

120870. Let’s cause some senators distress. – Peggy Noonan

120871. My generation, faced as it grew with a choice between religious belief and existential despair, chose marijuana. Now we are in our Cabernet stage. – Peggy Noonan

120872. Part of courage is simple consistency. – Peggy Noonan

120873. Sincerity and competence is a strong combination. In politics, it is everything. – Peggy Noonan

120874. Speeches are not magic and there is no great speech without great policy. – Peggy Noonan

120875. The 2008 election settled nothing, not even for a while. Our national politics are reflecting what appears to be going on geologically, on the bottom of the oceans and beneath the crust of the Earth: the tectonic plates are moving. – Peggy Noonan

120876. The battle for the mind of Ronald Reagan was like the trench warfare of World War I: never have so many fought so hard for such barren terrain. – Peggy Noonan

120877. TV gives everyone an image, but radio gives birth to a million images in a million brains. – Peggy Noonan

120878. You don’t have to be old in America to say of a world you lived in: That world is gone. – Peggy Noonan

120879. If you join government, calmly make your contribution and move on. Don’t go along to get along; do your best and when you have to – and you will – leave, and be something else. – Peggy Noonan

120880. I’m spoiled – in all ways. I’ve been in a rock ‘n’ roll band since I was 13, and we had incredible success. When it ended, it had been so good that I just looked at it as time to try something different. – Peter Noone

120881. There’s an element of tongue-in-cheek in every one of our songs. Walking off into the sunset, holding hands, and being married forever was not exactly a brand new idea. – Peter Noone

120882. I only went a year to high school. I should have been in high school, but I was in a band, and when you’re successful doing that – well, you aren’t too likely to go back. – Peter Noone

120883. Everybody gets to a stage when it’s time to move on. I was bored, and the band wasn’t going anywhere, so I left. I did a couple of shows on Broadway and some other things. I was busy. I just wasn’t making records. – Peter Noone

120884. What’s really fun is seeing mothers bringing their daughters to the shows. And the best part is the mothers know they don’t have to worry about sexual innuendo in the songs. The shows are family shows. – Peter Noone

120885. Sometime I wish the aliens would abduct me and crown me as their leader. – George Noory

120886. Well, with prophecy you got to see what happens. – George Noory

120887. What I do is create an aura of mystery. – George Noory

120888. You do something annual every year, don’t you? – George Noory

120889. Civilization is built on a number of ultimate principles… respect for human life, the punishment of crimes against property and persons, the equality of all good citizens before the law… or, in a word justice. – Max Nordau

120890. If I despised myself, it would be no compensation if everyone saluted me, and if I respect myself, it does not trouble me if others hold me lightly. – Max Nordau

120891. It is well to be alone. It fertilizes the creative impulse. – Max Nordau

120897. If the laughter of the audience was malicious we wouldn’t show it. – Denis Norden

120898. It’s like your children talking about holidays, you find they have a quite different memory of it from you. Perhaps everything is not how it is, but how it’s remembered. – Denis Norden

120899. The comedians all finished their acts with a song. They would get a certain amount of money from the song publishers and would use that money to pay the writers. None of them paid very much for their comedy material, but it all added up. – Denis Norden

120900. Then after that came word processors and it’s hard to make those laugh. – Denis Norden

120901. And if you can offer an explanation as to why it doesn’t work then you’ve got to the whole root of comedy. – Denis Norden

120902. Frank liked administrative work and was good at it. – Denis Norden

120903. And when you’re on your own there is that terrifying possibility that you may be the only person on the planet who thinks it’s funny – and you have no way of finding out. – Denis Norden

120904. If I know I make this much trouble, I never climb Everest. – Tenzing Norgay

120905. If it is a shame to be the second man on Mount Everest, then I will have to live with this shame. – Tenzing Norgay

120906. Am I an Apple bigot? No. I can critique their products and their customer service philosophy. But overall, they do better than any other player. – Donald Norman

120908. Scientists are always skeptics. – Donald Norman

120911. It is relatively easy to design for the perfect cases, when everything goes right, or when all the information required is available in proper format. – Donald Norman

120912. Also note that invariably when we design something that can be used by those with disabilities, we often make it better for everyone. – Donald Norman

120913. Isn’t one of your first exercises in learning how to communicate to write a description of how to tie your shoelaces? The point being that it’s basically impossible to use text to show that. – Donald Norman

120914. I prefer design by experts – by people who know what they are doing. – Donald Norman

120915. AS for all those mistakes I make – they are on purpose – to teach you how to deal with them. – Donald Norman

120916. Beauty and brains, pleasure and usability – they should go hand in hand. – Donald Norman

120917. Everyday people are not very good designers. – Donald Norman

120918. Our information lives will be better served when we are free to get to our information from wherever we are, with any device available. – Donald Norman

120919. I believe that robots should only have faces if they truly need them. – Donald Norman

120920. I believe that the Apple Shuffle is an excellent compromise among the conflicting requirements of simplicity, elegance, size, battery life, and function. – Donald Norman

120921. And to get real work experience, you need a job, and most jobs will require you to have had either real work experience or a graduate degree. – Donald Norman

120922. A big ethical question is what happens after people stop using the device. Does it degrade the environment? Could it have been designed so it would actually be good for the environment? – Donald Norman

120923. I think there is a tendency in science to measure what is measurable and to decide that what you cannot measure must be uninteresting. – Donald Norman

120924. I’ve been looking at the iPod- the Apple iPod. One of the interesting things about the iPod, one of the things that people love most about it is not the technology; it’s the box it comes in. – Donald Norman

120925. If you think the products don’t match what you want from a product, don’t buy it. – Donald Norman

120926. In my opinion, no single design is apt to be optimal for everyone. – Donald Norman

120927. User-centered design means working with your users all throughout the project. – Donald Norman

120928. To me, error analysis is the sweet spot for improvement. – Donald Norman

120929. We expert teachers know that motivation and emotional impact are what matter. – Donald Norman

120930. So what does a good teacher do? Create tension – but just the right amount. – Donald Norman

120931. Sure, one can always get the students to relax and be happy – entertained, but although being laid back and relax can also lead to creativity, mostly it means that nothing much gets done. – Donald Norman

120932. The problem with emotion was that it was clearly something important, but-at least according to the old philosophy-it was something to overcome. – Donald Norman

120933. You won’t catch me giving clear lectures. – Donald Norman

120934. Many are called but few are chosen. There are sayings of Christ which suggest that the Church he came to establish will always be a minority affair. – Edward Norman

120935. Well, I think any national championship is an extremely important championship to play in. – Greg Norman

120936. People in this room must have back problems, I’m sure some of us do, and it is really, really one of the worst pains and debilitating parts of your body that you can actually have because you really can’t do anything in your life when you have it. – Greg Norman

120937. So my game is solid. So that obviously makes me feel confident, that like anybody else in this field, you name them, I feel like I’ve got the ability to win the golf tournament just as much as they have, and that’s the way I’m going to take it. – Greg Norman

120938. That’s why we have practice rounds. We make the adjustments as we go around, try and find out how to play the golf course the best we can. No big deal, it’s nothing to me, it’s the same for me as it is to everybody and we’re all trying to understand it. – Greg Norman

120939. The game of golf doesn’t come rushing back to you. Last week I made a couple of fundamental mistakes that I probably wouldn’t have made in the heat of the battle back when I was in my heyday, and those things have got to come back. – Greg Norman

120940. To me I’ve just really, really found a relaxed, peaceful side of my life and I’m enjoying it. – Greg Norman

120941. My doctor asked me how many golf balls I had hit in my career. I’m lying there in bed calculating somewhere between four and five million golf balls I had hit to do that on my body. – Greg Norman

120942. What’s a good tournament for him? Winning it. He’s good enough. – Greg Norman

120943. When I turned 50, I said to myself, well, if this is what it’s like turning 50, I can’t wait to turn 60 because I still felt very, very mentally and physically good, outside my back surgery. – Greg Norman

120944. When you see that many people with a smile on their face, then you must be doing something right. – Greg Norman

120945. The players have competed on the level the last 25 or 30 years are always going to be the players that compete at a high level. These guys practice hard, they work on their game, they still hit the ball extremely well. – Greg Norman

120946. Obviously it’s my second senior event, and I’m tired obviously coming back from the British Open, from surgery, which was priority No. 1, did that successfully, and each week since the British Open I’ve felt in pretty good control of my golf game. – Greg Norman

120947. I’ve really got no complaints about the way I played, just extremely frustrating with the putter and I’m sure there’s a lot of other players saying the same thing except the guy who’s going to win the golf tournament. – Greg Norman

120948. I’m not interested at all in playing more than 12, 15 tournaments a year on an annual basis because like all the old guys out here on this Tour, we’ve played golf for nearly 30 years of our lives. – Greg Norman

120949. I wouldn’t call it bitter. I think it’s just sweet. I’ve always believed my life seems like it’s gotten better and better as each decade has gone by. So I don’t see any I don’t see any bitterness about it. – Greg Norman

120950. I think it’s great the opportunity is given to all of us really to come out and play major championships after the real major championships have gone beyond us. – Greg Norman

120951. I owe a lot to my parents, especially by mother and my father. – Greg Norman

120952. I mean, I can actually say goodbye to the game of golf, never hit another golf shot the rest of my life and I’d be happy because I can get back in life without any rotation. – Greg Norman

120953. I don’t see myself playing or adjusting my schedule for senior tournament golf. – Greg Norman

120954. I always wanted to be the best I could be at whatever I did. I didn’t want to be the number one golfer in the world. I just wanted to be as good as I could be. I work hard, I push myself hard, and I probably even expect too much of myself. – Greg Norman

120955. Being away for the weekends, and me being the international player that I have been for those 30 years, I’ve spent a lot more time flying around the world, playing different golf tournaments around the world. – Greg Norman

120956. You know, like I said, I’m not going to adjust my Senior Tour schedule. – Greg Norman

120959. I’m dying always. – Jessye Norman

120960. If you send up a weather vane or put your thumb up in the air every time you want to do something different, to find out what people are going to think about it, you’re going to limit yourself. That’s a very strange way to live. – Jessye Norman

120961. I am grateful that my horizons were not narrowed at the outset. – Jessye Norman

120962. I have a particular affliction. I am unable to say a word I can’t spell. – Jessye Norman

120963. Perhaps it should only be added that the Gorean master, though often strict, is seldom cruel. The girl knows, if she pleases him, her lot will be an easy one. – John Norman

120964. Slave girls on Gor address all free men as Master, though, of course only one such would be her true Master. – John Norman

120965. It is one thing to own a woman, and it is another to have her within the bonds of an excellent mastery. – John Norman

120966. According to the Gorean way of looking at things a taste of the slave ring is thought to be occasionally beneficial to all women, even the exalted free woman. – John Norman

120967. A Gorean slave girl in the presence of a free man or woman always kneels, unless excused from doing so. – John Norman

120968. The man who respects a woman does not know what else to do with her. – John Norman

120969. I know I stand visibly onstage, but my function is still unseen, because I rarely see the immediate results of what I am saying or doing or writing. – Larry Norman

120970. Jesus got me through the slums without getting murdered. I just walked with him as though he were really there and not a spirit just floating around. – Larry Norman

120971. We need worship for our spirit, fellowship for our soul and committed subservience for our body. – Larry Norman

120972. Only in a concert situation do I have access to people directly to preach to them, and I don’t believe that the bigger your platform is, the more people will pay attention. – Larry Norman

120973. Life is God’s art. – Larry Norman

120974. I’m only here on Earth to serve God. I never had a career. I don’t care about commercialism. I have a ministry and I’ll fight for the ministry. – Larry Norman

120975. I want to encourage other people to try to discover who they are, not to try to fit into some superficial prototype of what they think a Christian should be, but to discover who they really are. – Larry Norman

120976. I feel that Christian music is a subculture directed towards the Christians. It’s not really being exposed to non-Christians and it’s not really created for non-Christians, so non-Christians almost never hear any of this music. – Larry Norman

120977. Gospel songs to me are about the mansion in the sky, and washed in the blood of Christ’s crimson blood, songs that are filled with biblical wording that’s no longer understood by a lot of people. – Larry Norman

120978. Art is more engaging that propaganda. – Larry Norman

120979. I’m fishing for men with a certain kind of bait, and the bait that I am offering is not a candy; it’s a very specific thing that I’m offering, which is a deep gospel and a deep conversion. – Larry Norman

120984. Our goal is to shrink government to the size where we can drown it in a bathtub. – Grover Norquist

120985. We want to reduce the size of government in half as a percentage of GNP over the next 25 years. We want to reduce the number of people depending on government so there is more autonomy and more free citizens. – Grover Norquist

120986. The statists want to control the economy. – Grover Norquist

120987. My goal is to cut government in half in twenty-five years, to get it down to the size where we can drown it in the bathtub. – Grover Norquist

120988. Every time you cut programs, you take away a person who has a vested interest in high taxes and you put him on the tax rolls and make him a taxpayer. A farmer on subsidies is part welfare bum, whereas a free-market farmer is a small businessman with a gun. – Grover Norquist

120989. Being married is kind of like being a Ken-doll; you don’t get to dress yourself anymore. – Grover Norquist

120990. Obsessions turn people off. – Grover Norquist

120991. Clinton and Obama practice this politics known quaintly as the Richard Speck strategy: if you cannot take on everyone in the room at once, take them out of the room one at a time. – Grover Norquist

120992. I’ve always found that anything worth achieving will always have obstacles in the way and you’ve got to have that drive and determination to overcome those obstacles on route to whatever it is that you want to accomplish. – Chuck Norris

120993. Violence is my last option. – Chuck Norris

120994. Some of the most miserable people I know are some of the richest people in America, they are the most miserable individuals I’ve ever seen. – Chuck Norris

120997. It wasn’t until I went to Korea out of high school and got exposed to the martial arts for the first time and was just completely enamored with the physical ability of the martial arts and making my black belt. – Chuck Norris

120998. I’ve been very fortunate to be able to use my series as a platform to show a good message for the kids. – Chuck Norris

120999. I’m a very religious person. – Chuck Norris

121000. I think setting a goal, getting a visual image of what it is you want. You’ve got to see what it is you want to achieve before you can pursue it. – Chuck Norris
