139400. I didn’t choose the fact that I was gay, but I did choose whether to live my life as a gay woman-that was the terrifying thing for me. Especially being a gay actress. – Portia de Rossi

139401. I thought, I’m out in my life, that doesn’t involve my public life. – Portia de Rossi

139402. You live with the fear people might find out. Then you actually have the courage to tell people and they go, I don’t think you are gay. It’s enough to drive you crazy. – Portia de Rossi

139403. My feelings for Ellen overrode all of my fear about being out as a lesbian. I had to be with her, and I just figured I’d deal with the other stuff later. – Portia de Rossi

139404. My sexuality is a part of me that I really like. But it’s not the totality of me. – Portia de Rossi

139405. People might find me attractive, but it’s also my job to prove that I can be intelligent. – Portia de Rossi

139406. Supermodels are over, and the new picture girl has become the television actress. – Portia de Rossi

139407. The most important thing for me was to never, ever, ever deny it. But I didn’t really have the courage to talk about it. I was thinking, The people who need to know I’m gay know. – Portia de Rossi

139408. We must be able to inspire. That’s my goal in acting. – Portia de Rossi

139409. When I was 15, I changed my name legally. I think it was largely due to my struggle about being gay. Everything just didn’t fit, and I was trying to find things I could identify myself with, and it started with my name. – Portia de Rossi

139410. When I was anorexic it just seemed like I literally wanted to disappear. And now I would like to reappear. – Portia de Rossi

139411. When I watched Ellen come out in ’97, my jaw was on the floor. I thought, There are some people who break the doors down, hold them open, and some people who walk right through. – Portia de Rossi

139412. When you have the paparazzi hiding in the bushes outside your home, the only thing you can control is how you respond publicly. – Portia de Rossi

139413. Everyone is their own kind of lesbian. To think there’s a certain way to dress or present yourself in the world is just one more stereotype we have to fit into. – Portia de Rossi

139414. In high school I had sex with girls quite a few times. They were straight women who I convinced to jump in the sack with me. – Portia de Rossi

139415. I don’t like being famous – it is like a prison. And driving for Ferrari would make it far worse. – Valentino Rossi

139416. It’s a big, big advantage because understanding what changes we might make takes time and it takes time to work out settings and to understand everything about the new machine. – Valentino Rossi

139417. It is a big problem and so I don’t know for sure if I say yes or no to Ferrari. – Valentino Rossi

139418. In my opinion we are at the limit now, and 17 races is really too much. With all the testing that we do now, it means we’re always on the bike and it’s quite difficult. – Valentino Rossi

139419. In 2002 the Yamaha was at more or less the same level as the Honda, better in some ways, worse in others. But in the winter of last year between 2002 and 2003, Honda made a big step forward and it seemed as if Yamaha couldn’t quite match that improvement. – Valentino Rossi

139420. If I test the car for a year I can be quite competitive the next season. – Valentino Rossi

139421. I’m Valentino Rossi. And I want to be a person, not an icon. – Valentino Rossi

139422. I race to win. If I am on the bike or in a car it will always be the same. – Valentino Rossi

139423. How do Ferrari know what I’m doing next year when I don’t know what I’m doing next week? – Valentino Rossi

139424. But I could also start F1 or rallying. I love rallying much more. – Valentino Rossi

139425. As for the level of spectacle of the two disciplines, I leave it to the people who watch the races to comment. – Valentino Rossi

139426. Maybe if Graziano make another work or another sport I wouldn’t have had this passion to be a rider. – Valentino Rossi

139427. I have won on Honda and Yamaha so maybe it is interesting to win with a third team, Ducati, who are Italian. – Valentino Rossi

139428. I would have probably stolen cars – it would have given me the same adrenaline rush as racing. – Valentino Rossi

139429. Riding a race bike is an art – a thing that you do because you feel something inside. – Valentino Rossi

139430. The work that we do during the winter is very important; we have a new bike and it’s important to develop it during this time, and we start with this test. – Valentino Rossi

139431. To win the Championship in the first year will be hard. We need time to become competitive and win races. – Valentino Rossi

139432. We have the 2004 M1 here for reference, which is useful. It worked well here last year; we won the race and always did fast lap times so it will be interesting to compare it to the new bike and it will help us to understand which parts have improved. – Valentino Rossi

139433. I always enjoyed myself a lot in pre-school. – Valentino Rossi

139434. Once the races begin it’s more difficult and there is never that much time for testing. – Valentino Rossi

139435. Also, when I started racing he knew a lot of people and it was more easy for me to find the first bike, so I have a good chance for sure. – Valentino Rossi

139436. One can’t judge Wagner’s opera Lohengrin after a first hearing, and I certainly don’t intend to hear it a second time. – Gioachino Rossini

139437. Wagner is a composer who has beautiful moments but awful quarter hours. – Gioachino Rossini

139439. Mr. Wagner has beautiful moments but bad quarters of an hour. – Gioachino Rossini

139440. Give me a laundry-list and I’ll set it to music. – Gioachino Rossini

139441. Every kind of music is good, except the boring kind. – Gioachino Rossini

139442. It takes far less courage to kill yourself than it takes to make yourself wake up one more time. It’s harder to stay where you are than to get out. For everyone but you, that is. – Judith Rossner

139443. I’m a lousy journalist. – Judith Rossner

139444. I’d like to get out of here without having to talk to the producer. – Judith Rossner

139445. I knew I’d have to go to work in real estate or something else or I could never finish my novel. – Judith Rossner

139447. I was dictating to my mother when I was 5. – Judith Rossner

139448. My abiding theme is separations. – Judith Rossner

139449. My first book took five years to write and I made $1,000 on it. The second took three years and I made $3,000. All this time I was a housewife being supported by a husband. I was very lucky. – Judith Rossner

139450. The more interesting the 9-to-5 work is, the more it takes away from my real work, which is writing. – Judith Rossner

139451. Writers are the lunatic fringe of publishing. – Judith Rossner

139452. It’s astonishing what some women will put up with just to have a warm body. Some of the brightest women I know are just obsessed with that search. It’s very sad. – Judith Rossner

139453. I try to keep myself as sane and as grounded as possible by surrounding myself with normal people, such as all the friends that I’ve had from when I was little. – Emily Rossum

139454. I know that I am my worst critic. I know that if I can walk away from the set at the end of the day and feel that I did the best job I could and feel proud, that’s what will satisfy me. – Emily Rossum

139455. I started singing at the Met when I was seven, and the competition was so fierce that it really prepared me. – Emily Rossum

139456. I started working when I was seven and I was working for five dollars a night at the Met. – Emily Rossum

139457. I’ve been in the studio experimenting on making a CD of my own. I’m trying out different producers, styles, sounds. With music, as opposed to acting, you are not playing a character. You are showing people who you are. I really want to have my spirit in it. – Emily Rossum

139458. I’ve learned to take jobs as an actress that is meaningful to me because I’ve never taken a job for the money. – Emily Rossum

139459. I feel like I’ve come out of this grown up, maybe because I live through the character vicariously and she grows up so much during the course of this story. – Emmy Rossum

139460. It is very grand and sumptuous and awesome to look at but it was really about the characters for me. – Emmy Rossum

139461. It wasn’t my intention in going after this part but I suppose now I do. The adult roles are a lot meatier – you’re not always just the daughter or the girlfriend or whatever. – Emmy Rossum

139462. She’s lonely and wounded and very vulnerable and it really is a story about people at the heart of it all. – Emmy Rossum

139463. Here we spent so much time together – eight months of our lives almost – and it was so great because we all got so close and that really made us not afraid to improve with each other. – Emmy Rossum

139464. There was a project at Lawrence Livermore National Labs where many years ago they went down this path for scripting and controlling very large numerical calculations. – Guido van Rossum

139465. I have this hope that there is a better way. Higher-level tools that actually let you see the structure of the software more clearly will be of tremendous value. – Guido van Rossum

139466. I would guess that the decision to create a small special purpose language or use an existing general purpose language is one of the toughest decisions that anyone facing the need for a new language must make. – Guido van Rossum

139467. If you decide to design your own language, there are thousands of sort of amateur language designer pitfalls. – Guido van Rossum

139468. If you’re talking about Java in particular, Python is about the best fit you can get amongst all the other languages. Yet the funny thing is, from a language point of view, JavaScript has a lot in common with Python, but it is sort of a restricted subset. – Guido van Rossum

139469. In my daily work, I work on very large, complex, distributed systems built out of many Python modules and packages. The focus is very similar to what you find, for example, in Java and, in general, in systems programming languages. – Guido van Rossum

139470. Mark Hammond is working in this area, with Windows Scripting Host. It is definitely an area where Python fits almost perfectly. That’s quite independent from Java, actually. – Guido van Rossum

139471. My own perception of that is somewhat colored by where people ask my advice, which is still, of course, about changes to Python internals or at least standard libraries. – Guido van Rossum

139472. The second stream of material that is going to come out of this project is a programming environment and a set of programming tools where we really want to focus again on the needs of the newbie. This environment is going to have to be extremely user-friendly. – Guido van Rossum

139473. Yes, I definitely believe that it has some good cross-platform properties. Object orientation was one of the techniques I used to make Python platform independent. – Guido van Rossum

139474. Now, it’s my belief that Python is a lot easier than to teach to students programming and teach them C or C++ or Java at the same time because all the details of the languages are so much harder. Other scripting languages really don’t work very well there either. – Guido van Rossum

139475. A kiss, when all is said, what is it? A rosy dot placed on the ‘I’ in loving; Tis a secret told to the mouth instead of to the ear. – Edmond Rostand

139476. A large nose is in fact the sign of an affable man, good, courteous, witty, liberal, courageous, such as I am. – Edmond Rostand

139484. My pessimism extends to the point of even suspecting the sincerity of other pessimists. – Jean Rostand

139485. Kill a man, and you are a murderer. Kill millions of men, and you are a conquerer. Kill everyone, and you are a god. – Jean Rostand

139486. It takes a very deep-rooted opinion to survive unexpressed. – Jean Rostand

139487. It may offend us to hear our own thoughts expressed by others: we are not sure enough of their souls. – Jean Rostand

139488. It is sometimes well for a blatant error to draw attention to overmodest truths. – Jean Rostand

139489. It is sometimes important for science to know how to forget the things she is surest of. – Jean Rostand

139490. One kills a man, one is an assassin; one kills millions, one is a conqueror; one kills everybody, one is a god. – Jean Rostand

139498. God, that dumping ground of our dreams. – Jean Rostand

139499. Far too often the choices reality proposes are such as to take away one’s taste for choosing. – Jean Rostand

139500. Falsity cannot keep an idea from being beautiful; there are certain errors of such ingenuity that one could regret their not ranking among the achievements of the human mind. – Jean Rostand

139501. Certain brief sentences are peerless in their ability to give one the feeling that nothing remains to be said. – Jean Rostand

139502. It is not easy to imagine how little interested a scientist usually is in the work of any other, with the possible exception of the teacher who backs him or the student who honors him. – Jean Rostand

139503. To be adult is to be alone. – Jean Rostand

139504. We spend our time envying people whom we wouldn’t wish to be. – Jean Rostand

139505. I still understand a few words in life, but I no longer think they make a sentence. – Jean Rostand

139506. One must credit an hypothesis with all that has had to be discovered in order to demolish it. – Jean Rostand

139507. We must watch over our modesty in the presence of those who cannot understand its grounds. – Jean Rostand

139508. Truth is always served by great minds, even if they fight it. – Jean Rostand

139509. To say of men that they are bad is to say they are worse than we think we are, or worse than the ideal man whose image we have built up on the basis of a certain few. – Jean Rostand

139510. To love an idea is to love it a little more than one should. – Jean Rostand

139511. Think? Why think! We have computers to do that for us. – Jean Rostand

139512. There are moments when very little truth would be enough to shape opinion. One might be hated at extremely low cost. – Jean Rostand

139513. There are certain moments when we might wish the future were built by men of the past. – Jean Rostand

139514. Theories pass. The frog remains. – Jean Rostand

139515. Science has made us gods even before we are worthy of being men. – Jean Rostand

139527. A body of work such as Pasteur’s is inconceivable in our time: no man would be given a chance to create a whole science. Nowadays a path is scarcely opened up when the crowd begins to pour in. – Jean Rostand

139528. A few great minds are enough to endow humanity with monstrous power, but a few great hearts are not enough to make us worthy of using it. – Jean Rostand

139539. The only reason for being a professional writer is that you can’t help it. – Leo Rosten

139554. I learned that it is the weak who are cruel, and that gentleness is to be expected only from the strong. – Leo Rosten

139555. For me archaeology is not a source of illustrations for written texts, but an independent source of historical information, with no less value and importance, sometimes more importance, that the written sources. – Michael I. Rostovtzeff

139556. For long, history was mainly political history, and historical narrative was confined to an account of the most important crises in political life, or to an account of wars and great generals. – Michael I. Rostovtzeff

139557. The Cold War is over but Cold War thinking survives. – Joseph Rotblat

139558. At a time when science plays such a powerful role in the life of society, when the destiny of the whole of mankind may hinge on the results of scientific research, it is incumbent on all scientists to be fully conscious of that role, and conduct themselves accordingly. – Joseph Rotblat

139559. As for the assertion that nuclear weapons prevent wars, how many more wars are needed to refute this arguments? Tens of millions have died in the many wars that have taken place since 1945. – Joseph Rotblat

139560. All nuclear weapon states should now recognize that this is so, and declare – in Treaty form – that they will never be the first to use nuclear weapons. This would open the way to the gradual, mutual reduction of nuclear arsenals, down to zero. – Joseph Rotblat

139561. Since the end of the Cold War two main nuclear powers have begun to make big reductions in their nuclear arsenals. Each of them is dismantling about 2,000 nuclear warheads a year. – Joseph Rotblat

139562. Long before the terrifying potential of the arms race was recognized, there was a widespread instinctive abhorrence of nuclear weapons, and a strong desire to get rid of them. – Joseph Rotblat

139563. Several studies, and a number of public statements by senior military and political personalities, testify that – except for disputes between the present nuclear states – all military conflicts, as well as threats to peace, can be dealt with using conventional weapons. – Joseph Rotblat

139564. My third appeal is to my fellow citizens in all countries: Help us to establish lasting peace in the world. – Joseph Rotblat

139565. But scientists on both sides of the iron curtain played a very significant role in maintaining the momentum of the nuclear arms race throughout the four decades of the Cold War. – Joseph Rotblat

139566. The chief task was to stop the arms race before it brought utter disaster. However, after the collapse of communism and the disintegration of the Soviet Union, any rationale for having nuclear weapons disappeared. – Joseph Rotblat

139567. There is no direct evidence that nuclear weapons prevented a world war. Conversely, it is known that they nearly caused one. – Joseph Rotblat

139568. The decision to use the atom bomb on Japanese cities, and the consequent buildup of enormous nuclear arsenals, was made by governments, on the basis of political and military perceptions. – Joseph Rotblat

139569. The most terrifying moment in my life was October 1962, during the Cuban Missile Crisis. I did not know all the facts – we have learned only recently how close we were to war – but I knew enough to make me tremble. – Joseph Rotblat

139570. The present basic philosophy is nuclear deterrence. – Joseph Rotblat

139571. The time has come to formulate guidelines for the ethical conduct of scientist, perhaps in the form of a voluntary Hippocratic Oath. – Joseph Rotblat

139572. This is the reality of nuclear weapons: they may trigger a world war; a war which, unlike previous ones, destroys all of civilization. – Joseph Rotblat

139573. To sum up, there is no evidence that a world without nuclear weapons would be a dangerous world. On the contrary, it would be a safer world, as I will show later. – Joseph Rotblat

139574. We are told that the possession of nuclear weapons – in some cases even the testing of these weapons – is essential for national security. But this argument can be made by other countries as well. – Joseph Rotblat

139575. When the START 2 treaty has been implemented – and remember it has not yet been ratified – we will be left with some 15,000 nuclear warheads, active and in reserve. Fifteen thousand weapons with an average yield of 20 Hiroshima bombs. – Joseph Rotblat

139576. So I ask the nuclear powers to abandon the out-of-date thinking of the Cold War period and take a fresh look. Above all, I appeal to them to bear in mind the long-term threat that nuclear weapons pose to humankind and to begin action towards their elimination. – Joseph Rotblat

139577. But the first the general public learned about the discovery was the news of the destruction of Hiroshima by the atom bomb. A splendid achievement of science and technology had turned malign. Science became identified with death and destruction. – Joseph Rotblat

139578. But the nuclear powers still cling tenaciously to their weapons. – Joseph Rotblat

139579. From my earliest days I had a passion for science. – Joseph Rotblat

139580. I appeal to my fellow scientists to remember their responsibility to humanity. – Joseph Rotblat

139581. I saw science as being in harmony with humanity. – Joseph Rotblat

139582. Indeed, the very first resolution of the General Assembly of the United Nations – adopted unanimously – called for the elimination of nuclear weapons. – Joseph Rotblat

139583. Indeed, the whole human species is endangered, by nuclear weapons or by other means of wholesale destruction which further advances in science are likely to produce. – Joseph Rotblat

139584. Let me remind you that nuclear disarmament is not just an ardent desire of the people, as expressed in many resolutions of the United Nations. It is a legal commitment by the five official nuclear states, entered into when they signed the Non-Proliferation Treaty. – Joseph Rotblat

139585. This means that the only function of nuclear weapons, while they exist, is to deter a nuclear attack. – Joseph Rotblat

139586. I did not imagine that the second half of my life would be spent on efforts to avert a mortal danger to humanity created by science. – Joseph Rotblat

139587. If the militarily most powerful – and least threatened – states need nuclear weapons for their security, how can one deny such security to countries that are truly insecure? The present nuclear policy is a recipe for proliferation. It is a policy for disaster. – Joseph Rotblat

139588. I have to bring to your notice a terrifying reality: with the development of nuclear weapons Man has acquired, for the first time in history, the technical means to destroy the whole of civilization in a single act. – Joseph Rotblat

139589. A lot of rock bands are truly a legend in their own minds. – David Lee Roth

139598. The world’s a stage, and I want the brightest spot. – David Lee Roth

139816. Well physically preparing for the role, definitely and then continuing to stay physically fit throughout filming, getting up, 4.00 4.30 in the morning. – Brandon Routh

139817. Well no, I think we won’t have that problem but as far as paparazzi I’m speaking, I will deal with that. – Brandon Routh

139818. There are things about growing up in a small town that you can’t necessarily quantify. – Brandon Routh

139819. That’s definitely a part of who Superman is and definitely who Clark on the farm is. It translates to how calm he is. I feel like I’m pretty calm most of the time and relaxed, which gives presence to the character. – Brandon Routh

139820. So I think it was to Bryan’s credit that he was able to let go of some of those things because you create these scenes and you think you become creative, even I, acting things, you become very creatively taken by it. – Brandon Routh

139821. One of the most amazing things I got from the film, so much green screen, there are so many moments and it really taught me about how important it is to have an intention when flying, when going somewhere and having an intention. – Brandon Routh

139822. My interests were in fantasy more than comics growing up. – Brandon Routh

139823. It was important to have a similar energy in my performance. To make the character too different would have just been about my ego because it didn’t need to be drastically different. – Brandon Routh

139824. It was a great mantel to be able to take on really, an amazing legacy. And you know to finally see it, because I just saw the final product yesterday as well, is really amazing to be part of something like this. – Brandon Routh

139825. But as far as, for I think it will be amazing you know where I find myself years from now because of this film. It’s just amazing, I think everybody’s going to kind of know this film and because of it, me. So I you know it’s crazy. – Brandon Routh

139826. I’ve found the best way is to not be scared of the attention but to be grateful for it and open to it. It makes my days better rather than being annoyed that people want my attention. – Brandon Routh

139827. And also it was a process of, we lifted weights as well, in an effort to train my body to then be able to lift heavier weights when I got in Australia. So that was the first couple of months. – Brandon Routh

139828. I’m really excited to be a part of it and sharing the legacy, any documentary I look up at the sky and Kevin Burns did and Bryan did and showed me again you know the history that’s in this character and you know. – Brandon Routh

139829. I was at first but I mean I thought at first that I wanted a little bit of that in there but the reasoning behind what they cut and what they kept really makes sense and it really played for me when I saw it yesterday, it all worked and was understood. – Brandon Routh

139830. I mean it allowed me to do that which was fantastic because we really get to see the character mature and deal with some things that are, that I think as an audience member, really pull us in. – Brandon Routh

139831. I knew very early on that there would be quite a bit of attention: Superman is known all over the place. – Brandon Routh

139832. I could finally quit my job as a bartender and stop dreaming that I might be Superman and know that I was. Then I started thinking about how cool it was. – Brandon Routh

139833. I think Superman’s journey is to become comfortable on earth. Of course he’s got his role as earth’s greatest protector but he also wants to be as happy as he can and if that happens to be with Lois then he’s going to find a way. – Brandon Routh

139834. But so long as we can keep this crew of fantastic people together and can continue to make real breakthrough films in this category, as well as characters that stay true to what we’ve done in this first film, I’d be more than happy to be a part of it. – Brandon Routh

139835. As I said before, I’m prepared to be prepared and I think that remains the same, you know there’s no way to really know what it’s going to feel like. I think for each individual it’s different. – Brandon Routh

139836. And then once in Australia, I really hit the weights hard. – Brandon Routh

139837. And the spirit of Superman is great to have around. – Brandon Routh

139838. If I become defensive and upset right away, then that’s going to adversely affect how I deal with it and it’s probably not going to be good press for me and probably be bad just because I’m angry. Just be open and pleasant. – Brandon Routh

139839. I’m kind of looking for something with a lot less action and more talking and listening. – Brandon Routh

139840. There is a slowness in affairs which ripens them, and a slowness which rots them. – Joseph Roux

139841. When unhappy, one doubts everything; when happy, one doubts nothing. – Joseph Roux

139842. We call that person who has lost his father, an orphan; and a widower that man who has lost his wife. But that man who has known the immense unhappiness of losing a friend, by what name do we call him? Here every language is silent and holds its peace in impotence. – Joseph Roux

139843. Science is for those who learn, poetry is for those who know. – Joseph Roux

139844. The happiness which is lacking makes one think even the happiness one has unbearable. – Joseph Roux

139845. The folly which we might have ourselves committed is the one which we are least ready to pardon in another. – Joseph Roux

139846. Solitude vivifies; isolation kills. – Joseph Roux

139847. There are people who laugh to show their fine teeth; and there are those who cry to show their good hearts. – Joseph Roux

139848. Say nothing good of yourself, you will be distrusted; say nothing bad of yourself, you will be taken at your word. – Joseph Roux

139849. Experience comprises illusions lost, rather than wisdom gained. – Joseph Roux

139850. It is a very rare thing for a man of talent to succeed by his talent. – Joseph Roux

139851. Nothing vivifies, and nothing kills, like the emotions. – Joseph Roux

139852. Our experience is composed rather of illusions that of wisdom acquired. – Joseph Roux

139853. Poetry is the exquisite expression of exquisite expressions. – Joseph Roux

139854. Poetry is truth in its Sunday clothes. – Joseph Roux

139855. Reason guides but a small part of man, and the rest obeys feeling, true or false, and passion, good or bad. – Joseph Roux

139856. A fine quotation is a diamond in the hand of a man of wit and a pebble in the hand of a fool. – Joseph Roux

139857. Cindy Sheehan is a clown. There is no real antiwar movement. No serious politician, with anything to do with anything, would show his face at an antiwar rally. – Karl Rove

139858. In his first 100 days, Mr. Obama has put the fate of his presidency in the hands of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. He may come to regret that decision. – Karl Rove

139859. If you really want to diminish a candidate, depict him as the foil of his handler. This is as old in American politics as politics itself. – Karl Rove

139860. If there’s a leak out of my administration, I want to know who it is. – Karl Rove

139861. I think it’s dawning on some Democrats that obstructing the Patriot Act, like they’ve been obstructing everything else, is bad for them politically. – Karl Rove

139862. For a person who promised hope and civility in politics, Mr. Obama has shown a borderline obsessiveness in blaming Mr. Bush. – Karl Rove

139863. Conservatives saw the savagery of 9/11 in the attacks and prepared for war; liberals saw the savagery of the 9/11 attacks and wanted to prepare indictments and offer therapy and understanding for our attackers. – Karl Rove

139864. Many Democrats have a pre-9/11 worldview. – Karl Rove

139865. At the core, we are dealing with two parties that have fundamentally different views of the world. – Karl Rove

139866. As people do better, they start voting like Republicans – unless they have too much education and vote Democratic, which proves there can be too much of a good thing. – Karl Rove

139867. Alinsky’s 1971 book, “Rules for Radicals,” is a favorite of the Obamas. Michele Obama quoted it at the Democratic Convention. One Alinsky tactic is to “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” That’s what the White House did in targeting Rush Limbaugh, Rick Santelli and Jim Cramer. – Karl Rove

139868. I wish I had the billions of dollars that George Soros has that he has used to fund Democratic causes in the past. – Karl Rove

139869. “Empathy” is the latest code word for liberal activism, for treating the Constitution as malleable clay to be kneaded and molded in whatever form justices want. It represents an expansive view of the judiciary in which courts create policy that couldn’t pass the legislative branch or, if it did, would generate voter backlash. – Karl Rove

139870. You may be right that people say: ‘You know what, we had Obama. He was inexperienced. The guy had great rhetoric, sounded good, looked good, but has turned out to be an utter disaster. I want someone where I have confidence and credibility that they’re up to the job and that I can trust what they tell me.’ – Karl Rove

139871. Mr. Obama denounced the $2.3 trillion added to the national debt on Mr. Bush’s watch as “deficits as far as the eye can see.” But Mr. Obama’s budget adds $9.3 trillion to the debt over the next 10 years. What happened to Obama the deficit hawk? – Karl Rove

139872. Mr. Obama has an ingenious approach to job losses: He describes them as job gains. – Karl Rove

139873. Mr. Obama plans to boost federal spending 25 percent while nearly tripling the national debt over 10 years. Americans know that this kind of spending will have economic consequences, including new taxes being imposed by the new progressives. – Karl Rove

139874. Remember the Tea Party movement didn’t get started in September of 2008 when the bank bailout was passed. It really began on Feb. 19th, 2009 when a television commentator named Rick Santelli stood up and said what the hell are we doing bailing out people who couldn’t afford a mortgage by taking money from people like me who are prudent? – Karl Rove

139875. Has there ever been a more revealing moment this year? Let me just put this in fairly simple terms: Al Jazeera now broadcasts the words of Senator Durbin to the Mideast, certainly putting our troops in greater danger. No more needs to be said about the motives of liberals. – Karl Rove

139876. Somebody gets to be smart and somebody gets to be dumb. If we win, it’ll be because of the president. And if we lose, it’ll be because of me. – Karl Rove

139877. The claim made by Team Obama that every dollar in stimulus translates into a dollar-and-a-half in growth is economic fiction. The costs of stimulus reduce future growth. No country has ever spent itself to prosperity. The price of stimulus has to be paid sometime. – Karl Rove

139878. The difficulty for Mr. Obama will be when the public sees where his decisions lead – higher inflation, higher interest rates, higher taxes, sluggish growth, and a jobless recovery. – Karl Rove

139879. We’ve been probably to some degree too successful. – Karl Rove

139880. What Mr. Obama wants in a nominee isn’t really “empathy” and “understanding.” He wants a liberal, activist Supreme Court justice. – Karl Rove

139881. You all had something to do with keeping me employed. – Karl Rove

139882. Memo to White House: Calling voters stupid is not a winning strategy. – Karl Rove

139883. We emphasize that we believe in change because we were born of it, we have lived by it, we prospered and grew great by it. So the status quo has never been our god, and we ask no one else to bow down before it. – Carl T. Rowan

139884. The library is the temple of learning, and learning has liberated more people than all the wars in history. – Carl T. Rowan

139885. A minority group has “arrived” only when it has the right to produce some fools and scoundrels without the entire group paying for it. – Carl T. Rowan

139886. It is often easier to become outraged by injustice half a world away than by oppression and discrimination half a block from home. – Carl T. Rowan

139887. And most of my early pictures failed but about one in a 100 somehow looked better than what I saw. – Galen Rowell

139888. A lot of people think that when you have grand scenery, such as you have in Yosemite, that photography must be easy. – Galen Rowell

139889. Ever since the 1860s when photographers travelled the American West and brought photographs of scenic wonders back to the people on the East Coast of America we have had a North American tradition of landscape photography used for the environment. – Galen Rowell

139890. I began taking pictures in the natural world to be able to show people what I was experiencing when I climbed and explored in Yosemite in the High Sierra. – Galen Rowell

139891. I remember when an editor at the National Geographic promised to run about a dozen of my landscape pictures from a story on the John Muir trail as an essay, but when the group of editors got together, someone said that my pictures looked like postcards. – Galen Rowell

139892. I began to realise that film sees the world differently than the human eye, and that sometimes those differences can make a photograph more powerful than what you actually observed. – Galen Rowell

139893. I find it some of the hardest photography and the most challenging photography I’ve ever done. It’s a real challenge to work with the natural features and the natural light. – Galen Rowell

139894. I like to feel that all my best photographs had strong personal visions and that a photograph that doesn’t have a personal vision or doesn’t communicate emotion fails. – Galen Rowell

139895. I think landscape photography in general is somewhat undervalued. – Galen Rowell

139896. I’m exchanging molecules every 30 days with the natural world and in a spiritual sense I know I am a part of it and take my photographs from that emotional feeling within me, rather than from an emotional distance as a spectator. – Galen Rowell

139897. If we limit our vision to the real world, we will forever be fighting on the minus side of things, working only too make our photographs equal to what we see out there, but no better. – Galen Rowell

139898. I almost never set out to photograph a landscape, nor do I think of my camera as a means of recording a mountain or an animal unless I absolutely need a ‘record shot’. My first thought is always of light. – Galen Rowell

139899. These days, most nature photographers are deeply committed to the environmental message. – Galen Rowell

139900. I think that cognitive scientists would support the view that our visual system does not directly represent what is out there in the world and that our brain constructs a lot of the imagery that we believe we are seeing. – Galen Rowell

139901. Luckily, many other people tell me how they have had a particular landscape photograph of mine in their office or bedroom for 15 years and it always speaks to them strongly whenever they see it. – Galen Rowell

139902. My first thought is always of light. – Galen Rowell

139903. My mountaineering skills are not important to my best photographs, but they do add a component to my work that is definitely a bit different than that of most photographers. – Galen Rowell

139904. One of the biggest mistakes a photographer can make is to look at the real world and cling to the vain hope that next time his film will somehow bear a closer resemblance to it. – Galen Rowell

139905. The combination of pictures and words together can be really effective, and I began to realise in my career that unless I wrote my own words, then my message was diluted. – Galen Rowell

139906. The landscape is like being there with a powerful personality and I’m searching for just the right angles to make that portrait come across as meaningfully as possible. – Galen Rowell

139907. The reason that I keep writing is that all my most powerful messages about the fates of wild places that I care about need to have words as well as images. – Galen Rowell

139908. There’s no question that photographs communicate more instantly and powerfully than words do, but if you want to communicate a complex concept clearly, you need words, too. – Galen Rowell

139909. Today, I’m very careful not to mention very specific locations when I write or give captions. – Galen Rowell

139910. Wanting to take a light camera with me when I climb or do mountain runs has kept me using exclusively 35 mm. – Galen Rowell

139911. What I mean by photographing as a participant rather than observer is that I’m not only involved directly with some of the activities that I photograph, such as mountain climbing, but even when I’m not I have the philosophy that my mind and body are part of the natural world. – Galen Rowell

139912. When we tune in to an especially human way of viewing the landscape powerfully, it resonates with an audience. – Galen Rowell

139913. There is no question that photography has played a major role in the environmental movement. – Galen Rowell

139914. Woman: the peg on which the wit hangs his jest, the preacher his text, the cynic his grouch and the sinner his justification. – Helen Rowland

139915. And verily, a woman need know but one man well, in order to understand all men; whereas a man may know all women and understand not one of them. – Helen Rowland

139920. You will never win if you never begin. – Helen Rowland

139921. When two people decide to get a divorce, it isn’t a sign that they “don’t understand” one another, but a sign that they have, at last, begun to. – Helen Rowland

139922. To be happy with a man you must understand him a lot and love him a little. To be happy with a woman you must love her a lot and not try to understand her at all. – Helen Rowland

139923. Variety is the spice of love. – Helen Rowland

139924. Wedding: the point at which a man stops toasting a woman and begins roasting her. – Helen Rowland

139925. What a man calls his “conscience” is merely the mental action that follows a sentimental reaction after too much wine or love. – Helen Rowland

139926. Why does a man take it for granted that a girl who flirts with him wants him to kiss her – when, nine times out of ten, she only wants him to want to kiss her? – Helen Rowland

139927. When a girl marries, she exchanges the attentions of many men for the inattention of one. – Helen Rowland

139928. When you see what some women marry, you realize how they must hate to work for a living. – Helen Rowland

139931. Jealousy is the tie that binds, and binds, and binds. – Helen Rowland

139932. A man is like a cat; chase him and he will run – sit still and ignore him and he’ll come purring at your feet. – Helen Rowland

139933. Life begins at 40 – but so do fallen arches, rheumatism, faulty eyesight, and the tendency to tell a story to the same person, three or four times. – Helen Rowland

139934. Love, like a chicken salad or restaurant hash, must be taken with blind faith or it loses its flavor. – Helen Rowland

139935. Love, the quest; marriage, the conquest; divorce, the inquest. – Helen Rowland

139941. There are people whose watch stops at a certain hour and who remain permanently at that age. – Helen Rowland

139942. One man’s folly is another man’s wife. – Helen Rowland

139943. Nowadays love is a matter of chance, matrimony a matter of money and divorce a matter of course. – Helen Rowland

139944. The woman who appeals to a man’s vanity may stimulate him, the woman who appeals to his heart may attract him, but it is the woman who appeals to his imagination who gets him. – Helen Rowland

139945. The tenderest spot in a man’s make-up is sometimes the bald spot on top of his head. – Helen Rowland

139949. Home is any four walls that enclose the right person. – Helen Rowland

139950. Telling lies is a fault in a boy, an art in a lover, an accomplishment in a bachelor, and second-nature in a married man. – Helen Rowland

139951. Somehow a bachelor never quite gets over the idea that he is a thing of beauty and a boy forever. – Helen Rowland

139979. I plan on being a friend, a good leader and a good governor over these next three years. – John Rowland

139980. I think the most beautiful thing is that we’re not parting because there were problems. We’re parting because we’re celebrating each others’ growth. – Kelly Rowland

139981. I’m just steadily building myself up as Kelly Rowland, not just Kelly Rowland of Destiny’s Child, which is a blessing to be able to do that. – Kelly Rowland

139982. I started crying, because there’s nothing like hearing that the artist who originally did the song likes your version. – Kelly Rowland

139983. I ain’t gonna get this, it’s a horror movie, it’s hard to act scared. – Kelly Rowland

139984. For right now, it really is the end. Hopefully in 10 years we’ll all be married and have babies. – Kelly Rowland

139985. Ever since we were little, we were so on fire for our dreams. We never let anyone blow our flames out. – Kelly Rowland
