124621. I think you learn a lot about a country from its art. To me, it’s part of the drama of life. It teaches you that there are places, moments and incidents in other cultures that genuinely have a life of their own. – Michael Palin

124622. I think some of the best modern writing comes now from travellers. – Michael Palin

124623. I know that we shall meet problems along the way, but I’d far rather see for myself what’s going on in the world outside, than rely on newspapers, television, politicians and religious leaders to tell me what I should be thinking. – Michael Palin

124624. I am not a great cook, I am not a great artist, but I love art, and I love food, so I am the perfect traveller. – Michael Palin

124635. I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a community organizer, except that you have actual responsibilities. – Sarah Palin

124636. I came to office promising major ethics reform to end the culture of self-dealing. And today, that ethics reform is a law. While I was at it, I got rid of a few things in the governor’s office that I didn’t believe our citizens should have to pay for. That luxury jet was over-the-top. I put it on eBay. – Sarah Palin

124642. New terms used like, ‘overseas contingency operation’ instead of the word ‘war’ – that reflects a worldview that is out of touch with the enemy that we face. We can’t spin our way out of this threat. – Sarah Palin

124663. People have a constitutional right to burn a Koran if they want to, but doing so is insensitive and an unnecessary provocation – much like building a mosque at Ground Zero. – Sarah Palin

124664. To reduce deficit spending and our enormous debt, you reign in spending. You cut the budget. You don’t take more from the private sector and grow government with it. And that’s exactly what Obama has in mind with this expiration of Bush tax cuts proposal of his. – Sarah Palin

124665. They think that, if we were just smart enough, we’d be able to understand their policies. And I so want to tell ’em, and I do tell ’em, Oh, we’re plenty smart, oh yeah – we know what’s goin’ on. And we don’t like what’s goin’ on. And we’re not gonna let them tell us to sit down and shut up. – Sarah Palin

124666. The Republican Party would be really smart to absorb as much of the Tea Party movement as possible. – Sarah Palin

124667. The only place that the left hasn’t placed the blame is on their agenda, so some advice for our friends on that side of the aisle: that’s where you’ve gotta look because that’s what got you into this mess. – Sarah Palin

124668. The lesson of the last year is this: foreign policy can’t be managed through the politics of personality, and our President would do well to take note of an observation John F. Kennedy made once he was in office – that all of the world’s problems aren’t his predecessor’s fault. – Sarah Palin

124669. The fact that drilling won’t solve every problem is no excuse to do nothing at all. – Sarah Palin

124672. Sometimes even the greatest joys bring challenge, and children with special needs inspire a very, very special love. – Sarah Palin

124675. Annihilation is an absurdity in terms. – Bernard Palissy

124676. That’s what noir feels like to me. It feels like some kind of recurring dream, with very strong archetypes operating. You know, the guilty girl being pursued, falling, all kinds of stuff that we see in our dreams all the time. – Brian De Palma

124677. The biggest mistake in student films is that they are usually cast so badly, with friends and people the directors know. Actually you can cover a lot of bad direction with good acting. – Brian De Palma

124678. The real trouble with film school is that the people teaching are so far out of the industry that they don’t give the students an idea of what’s happening. – Brian De Palma

124695. I hadn’t done just a straight-out comedy in a long time, just letting an ensemble do really good character acting, having them carry the movie as in my earlier pictures. – Brian De Palma

124696. It’s always great when you discover someone. – Brian De Palma

124697. I don’t see scarey films. I certainly wouldn’t go see my films. – Brian De Palma

124698. I do like directing other people’s material. – Brian De Palma

124704. I’ve dropped myself into straightforward character pieces in order to explore that form and reap its values. But you are sort of restricted visually when your first requirement is to tell a fairly straightforward story. – Brian De Palma

124722. I still feel like I can play defense at first base at a very high level. – Rafael Palmeiro

124723. They try to say this era was a tainted era. But so many great players played in the last 15 to 20 years. This is going to be the best era in the history of the game in my opinion. – Rafael Palmeiro

124724. There’s a lot of history in Boston and a lot of history, obviously, in New York with all the championships. – Rafael Palmeiro

124725. The tragedy of all of this is that it happened to me and it shouldn’t have happened. It ruined my life and my career. That’s the tragedy of this. – Rafael Palmeiro

124726. The other deals with my life and my livelihood and my family and all that I stand for. – Rafael Palmeiro

124731. I’m not sure. I did not set it up. I have never done a polygraph test in my life. I didn’t know what to expect. I was just there to answer the questions that they put in front of me. – Rafael Palmeiro

124732. I’m not going to say what was being used in the clubhouse; whatever happens in the clubhouse stays in the clubhouse. But it was not like it was in your face. – Rafael Palmeiro

124733. I would love to go back and help rebuild that country and help – you know, kind of like what’s going on with Iraq right now. You know, they’ve got a new government in place. They’re trying to rebuild the country. I would love for that to happen in Cuba also. – Rafael Palmeiro

124734. I wish that they could have more freedoms to be able to come and play. I know that the only way that they can get out is by, you know, defecting to another country or whatever, or getting on a boat. – Rafael Palmeiro

124735. I don’t think that – you know, I’m sure that there’s guys that are doing it, because I’m sure in every sport there’s players who want to get the edge. But I think that it’s been blown overly – way more than guys are using it in our game. – Rafael Palmeiro

124736. I wish that they had the freedoms like the Japanese and the Koreans and the Mexicans and everybody else that has that freedom to come over here and play the game, because I know Cuba has a very strong baseball history. – Rafael Palmeiro
