126207. Somebody should tell us, right at the start of our lives, that we are dying. Then we might live life to the limit, every minute of every day. Do it! I say. Whatever you want to do, do it now! There are only so many tomorrows. – Pope Paul VI

126222. Never give advice in a crowd. – Pope Paul VI

126224. We consider Christmas as the encounter, the great encounter, the historical encounter, the decisive encounter, between God and mankind. He who has faith knows this truly; let him rejoice. – Pope Paul VI

126231. You are either a Zionist or an anti-Zionist. – Tom Paulin

126232. This sympathy is not translated into force against the British government because it is not like the anti- apartheid movement which had a high profile here and Mandela is a more engaging figure than Yasser Arafat. – Tom Paulin

126233. I think protest and actions have to be organised against the Israelis and their backers. There needs to be a concerted high profile campaign to raise awareness of the people in this country. – Tom Paulin

126234. I never believed that Israel had the right to exist at all. – Tom Paulin

126235. I don’t think the British carry a historical consciousness either. – Tom Paulin

126236. I am not very moved by historical apologies. – Tom Paulin

126237. Hitler bombed London into submission but in fact it created a sense of national solidarity. – Tom Paulin

126238. In my view the European culture carries a very heavy responsibility for the creation of Israel… it is a product of both British and Stalin’s anti- Semitism, but the British never faced their own complicity in its construction. – Tom Paulin

126247. The greatest thing is nobody cares that I’m fifty years old. They only care what I sound like. – Rob Paulsen

126248. Just because there are celebrities in a movie, it doesn’t mean anything. I don’t think The Ant Bully did all that well the first week at the box office. Compare the movies that have a lot of celebrities with the Jimmy Neutron movie, which had no celebrity voices and grossed almost one hundred million dollars. – Rob Paulsen

126249. It’s a treat to portray a complex character. Besides… where else could I find a job where emotional outbursts and odd exclamations like ‘Egad!’, ‘Narf!’, ‘Poit!’, ‘Splonk!’ and ‘Zort!’ are allowed? – Rob Paulsen

126250. I’m getting paid to do what I got in trouble for in the 7th grade. I absolutely love what I do and thank my lucky stars for twenty-five years of full-time employment in this business. – Rob Paulsen

126304. Only by observing this condition would the results of our work be regarded as fully conclusive and as having elucidated the normal course of the phenomena. – Ivan Pavlov

126305. Our experiments not only proved the existence of a nervous apparatus in the above-mentioned glands, but also disclosed some facts clearly showing the participation of these nerves in normal activity. – Ivan Pavlov

126306. Our success was mainly due to the fact that we stimulated the nerves of animals that easily stood on their own feet and were not subjected to any painful stimulus either during or immediately before stimulation of their nerves. – Ivan Pavlov

126307. Perfect as the wing of a bird may be, it will never enable the bird to fly if unsupported by the air. Facts are the air of science. Without them a man of science can never rise. – Ivan Pavlov

126308. While you are experimenting, do not remain content with the surface of things. – Ivan Pavlov

126309. The gastric laboratory uses its protein ferment under an acid reaction. – Ivan Pavlov

126310. The physiologist who succeeds in penetrating deeper and deeper into the digestive canal becomes convinced that it consists of a number of chemical laboratories equipped with various mechanical devices. – Ivan Pavlov

126311. It is not accidental that all phenomena of human life are dominated by the search for daily bread – the oldest link connecting all living things, man included, with the surrounding nature. – Ivan Pavlov

126312. Physiology has, at last, gained control over the nerves which stimulate the gastric glands and the pancreas. – Ivan Pavlov

126313. Thanks to our present surgical methods in physiology we can demonstrate at any time almost all phenomena of digestion without the loss of even a single drop of blood, without a single scream from the animal undergoing the experiment. – Ivan Pavlov

126314. It has long been known for sure that the sight of tasty food makes a hungry man’s mouth water; also lack of appetite has always been regarded as an undesirable phenomenon, from which one might conclude that appetite is essentially linked with the process of digestion. – Ivan Pavlov

126315. It goes without saying that the desire to accomplish the task with more confidence, to avoid wasting time and labour, and to spare our experimental animals as much as possible, made us strictly observe all the precautions taken by surgeons in respect to their patients. – Ivan Pavlov

126316. In the case of the stomach, however, the nerves of the glandular cells were always severed when constructing an artificially isolated pouch and this, naturally, affected the normal work of the stomach. – Ivan Pavlov

126317. From the described experiment it is clear that the mere act of eating, the food even not reaching the stomach, determines the stimulation of the gastric glands. – Ivan Pavlov

126318. Finally, as the digestive canal is a complex system, a series of separate chemical laboratories, I cut the connections between them in order to investigate the course of phenomena in each particular laboratory; thus I resolved the digestive canal into several separate parts. – Ivan Pavlov

126319. Edible substances evoke the secretion of thick, concentrated saliva. Why? The answer, obviously, is that this enables the mass of food to pass smoothly through the tube leading from the mouth into the stomach. – Ivan Pavlov

126320. Don’t become a mere recorder of facts, but try to penetrate the mystery of their origin. – Ivan Pavlov

126321. But man has still another powerful resource: natural science with its strictly objective methods. – Ivan Pavlov

126322. As was to be expected, the discovery of the nervous apparatus of the salivary glands immediately impelled physiologists to seek a similar apparatus in other glands lying deeper in the digestive canal. – Ivan Pavlov

126323. Appetite, craving for food, is a constant and powerful stimulator of the gastric glands. – Ivan Pavlov

126324. The digestive canal represents a tube passing through the entire organism and communicating with the external world, i.e. as it were the external surface of the body, but turned inwards and thus hidden in the organism. – Ivan Pavlov

126325. It is clear to all that the animal organism is a highly complex system consisting of an almost infinite series of parts connected both with one another and, as a total complex, with the surrounding world, with which it is in a state of equilibrium. – Ivan Pavlov

126326. To follow, without halt, one aim: that’s the secret of success. – Anna Pavlova

126327. When a small child, I thought that success spelled happiness. I was wrong, happiness is like a butterfly which appears and delights us for one brief moment, but soon flits away. – Anna Pavlova

126328. The right to happiness is fundamental. – Anna Pavlova

126329. No one can arrive from being talented alone, work transforms talent into genius. – Anna Pavlova

126330. God gives talent. Work transforms talent into genius. – Anna Pavlova

126331. Although one may fail to find happiness in theatrical life, one never wishes to give it up after having once tasted its fruits. – Anna Pavlova

126332. Success depends in a very large measure upon individual initiative and exertion, and cannot be achieved except by a dint of hard work. – Anna Pavlova

126333. One of the things about leadership is that you’ve got to show up. And if you want to be president of the United States you’ve got to make a case to the American people that Barack Obama needs to be dismissed from his position. – Tim Pawlenty

126334. The people and the mindset that killed 3,000 of our fellow citizens on September 11 2001, would have killed not 3,000, but 300,000 if they could have or 3 million or 30 million. We need to do everything we can within our value systems and legal structures to make sure that doesn’t happen. – Tim Pawlenty

126335. There is a group of individuals who are radical jihadists. We need to call them by name. They believe it is OK to kill people in the name of their religion. It is not all of Islam. It is not all Muslims. But there is a subgroup who believe it is OK. In fact, it is their plan and design to kill people. – Tim Pawlenty

126336. We have a country that is $5 a gallon gas, $4 a gallon gas, we got unbearable unemployment and a federal government that is out of control. We have to take back this country and we’ve got to get off the sidelines and take it to President Obama. – Tim Pawlenty

126337. I do support enhanced interrogation techniques. Obviously their value is shining through with respect to the bin Laden killing. – Tim Pawlenty

126338. History has taught us over and over again that freedom is not free. When push comes to shove, the ultimate protectors of freedom and liberty are the brave men and women in our armed forces. Throughout our history, they’ve answered the call in bravery and sacrifice. – Timothy Pawlenty

126339. We need to be calling out the flaws and misguided decisions of the Democrats in Congress and the Obama administration. – Timothy Pawlenty

126340. The unions and the auto companies have been unable to put a deal together that fundamentally restructures the industry. It needs to get done. The only way it’s really going to get done is in bankruptcy court. They should have done it six months ago they should do it now. – Timothy Pawlenty

126341. The rising cost of prescription drugs has sparked a prairie fire that is spreading across our nation. – Timothy Pawlenty

126342. The reason that the unions and the other stakeholders have not cut a deal with the automakers is because they believe the federal government is going to bail them out. – Timothy Pawlenty

126343. The only thing growing faster than the federal government’s deficit is Chris Matthews’ man-crush on Barack Obama. – Timothy Pawlenty

126344. Medicaid is essentially bankrupt, Medicare is essentially bankrupt, why the heck would we give the federal government another entitlement program to manage? – Timothy Pawlenty

126345. Keeping a lid on taxes is not just good for the taxpayer. It’s a powerful way to force government to be more accountable, set priorities and spend smarter. Let me repeat that: more accountable, set priorities and spend smarter – that’s what we need to be about. – Timothy Pawlenty

126346. In my address last year, I spoke on the issue of gaming. My preference then is my preference now: to keep gaming within its existing contours, but to explore a better deal for all Minnesotans. – Timothy Pawlenty

126347. A great deal has been said about my commitment not to raise taxes. It’s a core value – it’s common sense – it’s important to keeping and growing jobs – and it’s mainstream! – Timothy Pawlenty

126348. It appears that President Obama is making great progress on climate change, he is changing the political climate in the country back to Republican. – Timothy Pawlenty

126349. I hate the word ‘sneering’, I can’t help the way my face looks. – Jeremy Paxman

126350. The English approach to ideas is not to kill them, but to let them die of neglect. – Jeremy Paxman

126351. I’ve spent my whole life being told I have a face like a horse. You are just what you are, aren’t you? – Jeremy Paxman

126352. The early bird may get the worm, but it’s the second mouse that gets the cheese. – Jeremy Paxman

126353. You don’t really get to pick and chose what you would like to be doing. But I’ve been very fortunate, and I think water seeks its own level. You do gravitate towards things that you would get off on. – Bill Paxton

126354. When you start out as a filmmaker, you do parodies, because you can’t really compete on a studio level. – Bill Paxton

126355. It’s very liberating to be naked in front of a hundred people, but there’s nothing sexual about lovemaking on a movie set. – Bill Paxton

126356. It’s become very popular in contemporary films to have the twist ending. – Bill Paxton

126357. It’s always good to have no expectations when you see a film. Then you can be pleasantly disappointed or surprised. – Bill Paxton

126358. I’ve always loved movies about con men. I think con men are as American as apple pie. – Bill Paxton

126359. I’m actually really opposed to the death penalty. – Bill Paxton

126360. I hate tests. It’s a really lousy way to judge a person’s ability. – Bill Paxton

126361. I grew up in Texas, but that was 20 years ago. Last year, in Fort Worth, they had hail the size of softballs. We’re seeing more and more powerful storms, of all types, almost on a biblical level. – Bill Paxton

126362. I didn’t have a normal background – I was completely demented from a very early age! – Bill Paxton

126363. In the old days the studios guided your career. Now it’s all up to you. – Bill Paxton

126364. Always go hard and fast enough so that when you hit the ditch you can pull out the other side. – Johnny Paycheck

126365. To the truly benevolent mind, indeed, nothing is more satisfactory than to hear of a miser denying himself the necessaries of life a little too far and ridding us of his presence altogether. – James Payn

126366. It is quite extraordinary how very various are the opinions entertained on this point, and, before sifting them, one must be careful in the first place to eliminate from our inquiry the cases of that considerable class of persons who pinch themselves. – James Payn

126367. Nature of course is the best guide in the matter of choosing a pursuit. – James Payn

126368. Nor, in our own country, must we fail to take notice of the establishment of School Boards. – James Payn

126369. One forgives the critic – perhaps – but never the good-natured friend. – James Payn

126370. One would think that in writing about literary men and matters there would be no difficulty in finding a title for one’s essay, or that any embarrassment which might arise would be from excess of material. I find this, however, far from being the case. – James Payn

126371. Some Critics on the Hearth are not only good-natured, but have rather too high, or, if that is impossible, let us say too pronounced, an opinion of the abilities of their literary friends. – James Payn

126372. The fact is, if a young man is naturally indolent, the spur of necessity will drive him but a very little way, while the having enough to live upon is often the means of preserving his self-respect. – James Payn

126373. There are, it is true, at present no great prizes in literature such as are offered by the learned professions, but there are quite as many small ones – competences; while, on the other hand, it is not so much of a lottery. – James Payn

126374. It is better, however, for his own reputation that the story-teller should risk a few actions for libel on account of these unfortunate coincidences than that he should adopt the melancholy device of using blanks or asterisks. – James Payn

126375. It has often struck me that the relation of two important members of the social body to one another has never been sufficiently considered, or treated of, so far as I know, either by the philosopher or the poet. – James Payn

126376. The idea of bringing young people up to Literature is doubtless calculated to raise the eyebrows almost as much as the suggestion of bringing them up to the Stage. – James Payn

126377. Cultivating literature as I do upon a little oatmeal, and driving, when in a position to be driven at all, in that humble vehicle, the ‘bus, I have had, perhaps, exceptional opportunities for observing their mutual position and behaviour; and it is very peculiar. – James Payn

126378. It is certain, indeed, that the sacred writers were apt to make great allowances for people with empty stomachs, and though I am well aware that the present profane ones think this very reprehensible, I venture to agree with the sacred writers. – James Payn

126379. A man with an invention on which he has spent his life, but has no means to get it developed for the good of humanity – or even patented for himself – must feel the pinch of poverty very acutely. – James Payn

126380. A nobler example, because a less personal one, of the pinch of poverty, is when it prevents the accomplishment of some cherished scheme for the benefit of the human race. – James Payn

126381. And what holds good of verse holds infinitely better in respect to prose. – James Payn

126382. But, on the other hand, the occasional and precarious dripping of coppers has by no means a genial effect. – James Payn

126383. For my part, I do not feel that the scheme of future happiness, which ought by rights to be in preparation for me, will be at all interfered with by my not meeting again the man I have in my. mind. – James Payn

126384. For my part, I do not much believe in the predilections of boyhood. – James Payn

126385. How large and varied is the educational bill of fare set before every young gentleman in Great Britain; and to judge by the mental stamina it affords him in most cases, what a waste of good food it is! – James Payn

126386. In all highly civilised communities Pretence is prominent, and sooner or later invades the regions of Literature. – James Payn

126387. A great philosopher has stated that the worst evil of poverty is, that it makes folks ridiculous; by which, I hope, he only means that, as in the above case, it places them in incongruous positions. – James Payn

126388. In England, literary pretence is more universal than elsewhere from our method of education. – James Payn

126389. As a rule, anyone who can tell a good story can write one, so there really need be no mistake about his qualification; such a man will be careful not to be wearisome, and to keep his point, or his catastrophe, well in hand. – James Payn

126390. A pitfall of making a comedy with a studio-and it’s also an American cultural thing-is that I get tired of being encouraged to go always for laughs. – Alexander Payne

126391. I think that Peter Jennings is the only decent one of the big three. – Alexander Payne

126392. You just never know when you’re living in a golden age. – Alexander Payne

You bet every member of Congress who votes for this bill ought to read it, read it thoroughly, and understand that what we’re looking at here amounts to nothing more than a government takeover of our health care economy, paid for with nearly a trillion dollars in new taxes on individuals and small businesses.

126849. It is a rare piece of legislation indeed where there is so much agreement about the goals. – Mike Pence

126850. Well the truth is, Republicans didn’t just lose a few elections, we lost our way. – Mike Pence

126851. By requiring that any surplus in Social Security taxes be returned to the American people in personal savings accounts, the plan ensures that Social Security taxes will be used for Social Security. – Mike Pence

126852. All we’re getting from the Democratic majority in Congress and from this White House is more bailouts, more spending, more planned stimulus, more deficits and debt, and the American people have had it. – Mike Pence

126939. So if we have anything original to offer, it’s to speak from our own life about the society we’re in. – Sean Penn

126940. There are a few directors around who I have some excitement about spending my $7 at the theatre watching their movies. – Sean Penn

126941. What happens is things come to you – director, script – and if you respond to it, it’s because it’s tapping into some part of what’s inside you, and different roles tap into different parts. – Sean Penn

126942. There’s a lot of mediocrity being celebrated, and a lot of wonderful stuff being ignored or discouraged. – Sean Penn
