141391. The rate of return on Social Security for people nearing retirement is about 1.5 percent. By the time young children like mine are ready to retire, that rate of return will be a negative percentage. – Paul Ryan

141392. We believe a renewed commitment to limited government will unshackle our economy and create millions of new jobs and opportunities for all people, of every background, to succeed and prosper. Under this approach, the spirit of initiative – not political clout – determines who succeeds. – Paul Ryan

141393. We believe that the government has an important role to create the conditions that promote entrepreneurship, upward mobility, and individual responsibility. – Paul Ryan

141394. We believe, as our founders did, that ‘the pursuit of happiness’ depends upon individual liberty; and individual liberty requires limited government. – Paul Ryan

141395. We do not have a functioning market in the true sense of the word in health care. That’s a layer of transparency that’s sorely needed in America. – Paul Ryan

141396. We need leadership. We don’t need a doubling down on the failed politics of the past. – Paul Ryan

141397. We’re saying no changes for Medicare for people above the age of 55. And in order to keep the promise to current seniors who’ve already retired and organized their lives around this program, you have to reform it for the next generation. – Paul Ryan

141398. What matters to me is that I do what I think is right and I see, I’m a numbers guy, that’s my attitude. I know we have a debt tsunami coming, we are bankrupting this country and I’m in a position where I can actually advance ideas to prevent that from happening. That’s exactly what I should be doing. – Paul Ryan

141399. What we heard today was not fiscal leadership from our Commander-in-Chief, what we heard today was a political broadside from our Campaigner-in-Chief. – Paul Ryan

141400. Our debt is out of control. What was a fiscal challenge is now a fiscal crisis. We cannot deny it; instead we must, as Americans, confront it responsibly. And that is exactly what Republicans pledge to do. – Paul Ryan

141401. We need to reclaim our American system of limited government, low taxes, reasonable regulations, and sound money, which has blessed us with unprecedented prosperity. And it has done more to help the poor than any other economic system ever designed. – Paul Ryan

141402. By failing seriously to confront the most predicable economic crisis in our nation’s history, the President’s policies are committing us and our children to a diminished future. – Paul Ryan

141403. Republicans have offered dozens of comprehensive healthcare plans many of which achieve comprehensive healthcare reform without breaking what’s working in healthcare. We want to fix what’s broken in healthcare. – Paul Ryan

141404. Since taking office, President Obama has signed into law spending increases of nearly 25 percent for domestic government agencies – an 84 percent increase when you include the failed stimulus. All of this new government spending was sold as ‘investment.’ – Paul Ryan

141405. Borrowing and spending is not the way to prosperity. – Paul Ryan

141406. Do we believe that the goal of government is to promote equal opportunity for all Americans to make the most of their lives? Or, do we now believe that government’s role is to equalize the results of peoples lives? – Paul Ryan

141407. Exploiting people’s emotions of fear, envy and anxiety is not hope, it’s not change, it’s partisanship. We don’t need partisanship. We don’t need demagoguery, we need solutions. – Paul Ryan

141408. Here’s the problem if you keep raising tax rates: You slow down economic growth. – Paul Ryan

141409. Hiding spending does not reduce spending. – Paul Ryan

141410. I don’t consult polls to tell me what my principles are or what our policies should be. – Paul Ryan

141411. I don’t want to get into the ‘who’s a hostage-taker’ discussion here, but what is the estate tax? It’s a double tax on death. Economists will tell you that it’s really not a tax that soaks the rich, but it’s a tax on capital that deprives business investment and therefore job creation. – Paul Ryan

141412. If we didn’t propose these reforms, we would not have proposed a budget that got the debt under control. – Paul Ryan

141413. If we don’t make tough decisions today our children are going to have to make much, much tougher decisions tomorrow. – Paul Ryan

141414. If you’re running for president, you’ve got to do a lot of things to line up a candidacy. I’ve not done any of those things. It’s not my plan. My plan is to be a good chairman of the House Budget Committee and fight for the fiscal sanity of this nation. – Paul Ryan

141415. Look, I am not worried about Washington cutting too much spending too fast. I mean, the kinds of spending cuts we’re talking about just right now are $100 billion out of a $3.7 trillion budget. – Paul Ryan

141416. Look, of course people are scared of entitlement reform because every time you put entitlement reform out there, the other party uses it as a political weapon against you. – Paul Ryan

141417. Our founders got it right when they wrote in the Declaration of Independence that our rights come from nature and nature’s God, not from government. – Paul Ryan

141418. Look, only in Washington is not raising taxes considered a tax cut. Nobody’s getting a tax cut here. We’re not cutting taxes. We’re preventing tax increases from occurring. – Paul Ryan

141419. Are we interested in treating the symptoms of poverty and economic stagnation through income redistribution and class warfare, or do we want to go at the root causes of poverty and economic stagnation by promoting pro-growth policies that promote prosperity? – Paul Ryan

141420. Look, the president is elected to lead and to face the country’s biggest challenges. The country’s biggest challenge domestically speaking, no doubt about it, is a debt crisis, and I’m really hoping that he is going to give us a budget that tackles this debt crisis. – Paul Ryan

141421. If borrowing and spending all this money led to more jobs than we would be at full employment already. – Paul Ryan

141422. I often concentrate on the eyes and lips, they are great indicators of mood and feeling, and I find that I can project character into my portraits by bringing the viewer’s attention to these areas. – Robert Ryan

141423. I sometimes use a lot of light greens and greys when I feel there is sadness in the painting. – Robert Ryan

141424. I know intuitively when the work is right, no training can teach you this, it is simply a matter of feeling. – Robert Ryan

141425. The payment for sins can be delayed. But they can’t be avoided. – Shawn Ryan

141426. It is like our foreign policy has attention deficit disorder. – Tim Ryan

141427. While the political debate over abortion will continue for a very long time, the federal government can and should be doing more to support programs and services that provide women with better options. – Tim Ryan

141428. It’s very difficult to break into motion pictures, but it’s oddly easier for directors today because of independent films and cable, who have inherited for the most part those films of substance that the studios are reluctant to finance. – Mark Rydell

141429. Yes, there are directors I admire, the mavericks. Altman. There are many good directors. – Mark Rydell

141430. Well you’re talking about a long career, a lot of movies, a lot of stars. I guess working with Henry Fonda and Katherine Hepburn was a great privilege. – Mark Rydell

141431. Well you know, Woody doesn’t rehearse, as opposed to my own method of directing where I really work with actors around a round table for weeks, examining the values of the material, so his technique is very different. – Mark Rydell

141432. There’s evidence of a social decline in direct proportion to technology and the industrialization of the motion picture industry. – Mark Rydell

141433. I don’t know a lot of agents like Al Hack. – Mark Rydell

141434. There are always at least five good films at the end of the year to get nominated, but generally speaking nowadays, it’s more of the independent films that are recognized. – Mark Rydell

141435. Now a movie goes out to two, three thousand theaters and by Friday night at 10 o’clock they know if you are in or out. That desperate competition is, I think, horrendous. It’s awful. – Mark Rydell

141436. No one turns down a film with Woody; it’s something everyone wants in their career as an important moment. He’s such a comedic genius, without question, so I was thrilled. – Mark Rydell

141437. He was a psychotic. He was a borderline psychotic. He was a terrific, sensational actor, with a magical screen presence, you couldn’t keep your eyes off him, but he was paranoid. He was sure everybody was out to get him. – Mark Rydell

141438. It’s sad – it’s sad for us old enough to remember when directors ruled, and films were substantially better than they are today. But it’s hard to argue with those kinds of grosses. – Mark Rydell

141439. It’s kind of interesting to be a director who is all of a sudden being an actor playing an agent. This is my whole world! – Mark Rydell

141440. It perhaps has a chance, a commercial chance, this film. It’s funny, it’s charming, the idea is original, it’s unusual and it makes fun of the movie industry in a way that it needs to be poked fun at. – Mark Rydell

141441. I long for the days when grosses were not even known. There was no weekend competition. – Mark Rydell

141442. He’s very alive in a scene. He’s a very good actor to act with. Even though through most of the picture he’s blind, there are many places early in the picture I got to be with him before he was blind. Like convincing him in the office to do the picture. – Mark Rydell

141443. It always amazed me that he was able to do it, and that Orson Welles was able to do it. I never understood it because the talents are absolutely opposite – polar opposites. – Mark Rydell

141444. It’s the unusual leading man. Most of the Hollywood leading men are powerful and capable and strong, heroes. He has this vulnerability, he’s fragile, he struggles to find a way to live from day to day that we can identify with, that we can understand. – Mark Rydell

141445. My dad took me to all the best rock and punk shows when I was growing up and music has always been a part of my life. So I’m very interested in the music scene and I suppose that’s why I’ve ended up going out with musicians. Dave Pirner is still one of my best friends. – Winona Ryder

141446. Money doesn’t matter on a deeply personal level. It doesn’t make you feel any happier. But of course I am very aware that I don’t have to worry about earning a living or about those very important practical things that most people have to worry about on a very real level. – Winona Ryder

141447. It’s really good to be able to think about past loves without having a pit in my stomach, or cringing or feeling heart-broken, or like they hate you. Don’t you think? – Winona Ryder

141448. People think that they just want movies like Pretty Woman, when really they – at least the ones that I know personally – have been waiting for something that doesn’t completely insult them. – Winona Ryder

141449. You’ve got to grow up sometime. – Winona Ryder

141450. When you finally accept that it’s OK not to have answers and it’s OK not to be perfect, you realize that feeling confused is a normal part of what it is to be a human being. – Winona Ryder

141451. It’s just people should realize that the celebrity aspect of being an actor is very rarely enjoyable for people like me who would always rather go unnoticed and disappear into the crowd. – Winona Ryder

141452. It’s part of the celebrity process but my life has never been as interesting or as wild as what’s been printed about me. – Winona Ryder

141453. Remember, I’m the kind of kid who used to get stuffed into a locker by school bullies. I’ve never felt like I’m a big star at any level of my life. – Winona Ryder

141454. That’s an aspect of this business which can be very frustrating and aggravating. Most of what is written about you is wrong and so much of what does get printed is often about personal things that you don’t want to have other people read about. – Winona Ryder

141455. Weird people follow you in the streets, you can’t sit alone in a restaurant or a cafe and read a book in peace, and I think everybody values those moments of being alone. – Winona Ryder

141456. You can’t pay enough money to… cure that feeling of being broken and confused. – Winona Ryder

141457. You go through spells where you feel that maybe you’re too sensitive for this world. I certainly felt that. – Winona Ryder

141458. You try to get out there and live. I’ve always had good friends who’ve been very supportive and help make me feel good and grounded because I’ve never felt attached to the film industry. – Winona Ryder

141459. If I showed you scripts from my first few movies, the descriptions of my characters all said ‘the ugly girl’. – Winona Ryder

141460. There was a time when I was 19 when I really, really, really thought I was going crazy. I was exhausted and going through a terrible depression. – Winona Ryder

141461. I don’t hang out with agents and producers and I’m not into the business side at all. – Winona Ryder

141462. It’s also a question of finding good material and interesting roles. I’m not the only actress out there, and good parts just don’t fall into your lap that easily. But I like most of the films I’ve made recently and so I’m pretty positive about the future. – Winona Ryder

141463. It’s an indication of how cynical our society has become that any kind of love story with a sad theme is automatically ridiculed as sentimental junk. – Winona Ryder

141464. Break-ups are hard for anybody, but it’s particularly tough when it’s being documented and you see the person’s picture everywhere. Most people don’t have that added problem when they break up with someone. – Winona Ryder

141465. I don’t believe I am influencing anybody but myself. – Winona Ryder

141466. I feel my best when I’m happy. – Winona Ryder

141467. I have this sense that I didn’t really start growing up until my twenties. – Winona Ryder

141468. I think I’m learning to be bolder in my career choices and be more confident in my personal life. I haven’t always felt very secure as an individual, but now I feel I certain confidence and sense of self that gets me through the day a lot better than before. – Winona Ryder

141469. I was regarded as the school freak which further reinforced a lot of inhibitions and doubts I had about myself. I was a shy, frightened teenager for a long time. – Winona Ryder

141470. I was very depressed after breaking off my engagement with Johnny ten years ago. I was embarrassingly dramatic at the time, but you have to remember I was only 19 years old. – Winona Ryder

141471. I’m not into older guys. To tell you the truth, Richard Gere is not the sexiest man alive, in my book. – Winona Ryder

141472. I’m not into wrinkles. – Winona Ryder

141473. I’m quite comfortable looking at myself in movies, probably because I’ve been doing it for so long, since I was a kid. So I sort of watched myself grow up and go through adolescence, like, basically on camera. – Winona Ryder

141474. I’ve learned that it’s OK to be flawed. – Winona Ryder

141475. But I’ve always felt a need to have a life which is completely separate – at least as far as possible – from the kind of illusory lifestyle that comes with being a celebrity. – Winona Ryder

141476. So there’s a lot of people tied into believing that the traditional response to the authorship question. In terms of actors, some people get very angry about it. – Mark Rylance

141477. It’s an intuitive exercise to do a Shakespeare play and to go through a Shakespeare play. – Mark Rylance

141478. You know, I don’t think you need to be educated to be a great actor. – Mark Rylance

141479. There have been more books alone written about Hamlet than have been written about the Bible. – Mark Rylance

141480. Our job is to make manifest the story, to be it. In a sense, the theatre is such a big star itself, bigger than any Shakespearean actor I could hire, that we should take the opportunity to fill it with voice and verse and movement, not interpretation. – Mark Rylance

141481. Moments are incredible, but in my fantasy mind I see a Globe company which is renowned throughout the world for what it does with pure storytelling. So that people come and say: it’s not just the building, it’s the only place you can hear this kind of work. – Mark Rylance

141482. It’s difficult for me to say, but I don’t think the sex scenes are particularly erotic. – Mark Rylance

141483. And it is a very beautiful idea, and possibly true, that a common man from Stratford with a common education was able to write these plays. – Mark Rylance

141484. I think that was very important to Bacon… personally. I think he went to great efforts to get a house for the Stratford man, to make it so difficult for us to prove that it was Francis Bacon, because it is very difficult to prove. – Mark Rylance

141485. Well, my wife always says to me, and I think it’s true, it’s very difficult for us to understand the Elizabethan understanding and enjoyment and perception of form as it is to say… it would be for them to understand computers or going to the moon or something. – Mark Rylance

141486. And people do enjoy the plays at completely different levels. And, likewise, they enjoy the authorship question… at completely different levels. – Mark Rylance

141487. Burleigh, absolutely; and a lot about Elizabeth. I mean I found when I play Henry V a lot of connections with the hidden history of the connection between Francis Bacon and Elizabeth. – Mark Rylance

141488. But I don’t sit down at dinner and have clever ideas. – Mark Rylance

141489. But I find with Francis Bacon, some of the things were in the place, and someone who was connected with these schools of thought, and someone who had a motivation that equals the scope of the comedy and the tragedy in the plays. – Mark Rylance

141490. But to me I find Francis Bacon the most likely candidate to be the author. – Mark Rylance

141491. Great actors try to dismiss all ideas from their conscious mind in order to provide an experience that is real. – Mark Rylance

141572. Tennis has had a very positive impact on my life. – Gabriela Sabatini

141573. I felt nobody would understand what was going on in my mind. – Gabriela Sabatini

141598. The advice would be the same for any kind of fiction. Keep writing, and keep sending things out, not to friends and relatives, but to people who have the power to buy. A lot of additional, useful tips could be added, but this is fundamental. – Fred Saberhagen

141599. The Berserkers have been with me for about forty years, and we’re not done yet. – Fred Saberhagen

141600. The comments I most appreciate come from ordinary readers who’ve happened on one of my books at some time of stress in their lives, and who actually credit the book with helping them through a bad time. It’s happened a few times in forty years. – Fred Saberhagen

141602. If people ask me for the ingredients of success, I say one is talent, two is stubbornness or determination, and third is sheer luck. You have to have two out of the three. Any two will probably do. – Fred Saberhagen

141603. There are interactions with characters within the game which I think are pretty neatly done considering the limitations that you have to work with. I mean, a computer can’t really generate a character that talks back and forth with you successfully. – Fred Saberhagen

141604. I guess if one set of my books was selling like Stephen King’s, and the other wasn’t selling at all, editors would want me to do the ones that sold like Stephen King’s. But they seem to be willing to let me pick what I want to do next. – Fred Saberhagen

141606. The Swords were still interesting but by then a cast of characters had started to appear and go on from book to book, and other things about the world began to feel constricting. And there were other things I wanted to do, so I closed the series up and stopped it. – Fred Saberhagen

141607. I doubt I’ll ever do another book collaboration; I’ve been spoiled. Roger and I both happened to move to New Mexico at about the same time, when we each had a family of young kids to raise. Socializing seemed to lead naturally to working together. – Fred Saberhagen

141611. I don’t know why a computer game can’t be an art form just as a puppet show or an opera is. I’m still interested in computer games as something I would like to work on someday. – Fred Saberhagen

141623. It’s a visual world and people respond to visuals. – Joe Sacco

141624. Robert Crumb is an influence on how I draw, but not on the subject matter I take or my approach. One thing I do like about Crumb is that he’s chronicled his age, his times, and I think that is what artists should do. – Joe Sacco

141625. There’s probably one more story about Bosnia that I’d like to do, because I spent a fair amount of time on the Serb side of the lines, which isn’t apparent in the other books. – Joe Sacco

141628. With comics you can put interesting and solid information in a format that’s pretty palatable. – Joe Sacco

141629. My guide had a copy of Palestine on my last trip to Gaza. He’d bring it out and show people what I was trying to do. That usually went over pretty well. – Joe Sacco

141630. When I went to Bosnia, I was there to tell someone else’s story and I was more methodical. – Joe Sacco

141631. I don’t like just traveling in for a short time. I’ve done that before, because sometimes you work for magazines and they have a budget, and if you’re working for them, they want something by a certain time. – Joe Sacco

141632. I will interview bigwigs if I get the chance, but you are seldom surprised by people in power – you’ve got to get awfully damn close to get anything new. – Joe Sacco

141633. And, in some ways I like traveling, in other ways I’m sort of fed up by the whole notion. – Joe Sacco

141634. I don’t often go to a place just to check out all the cultural sites of a city. – Joe Sacco

141635. Oh, it’s essential. I mean, you have to – if I’m writing about the Middle East, I have to go there, and if possible, stay long enough to get a real feeling for what’s going on. – Joe Sacco

141636. I think any journalist who spends time in a place realizes that there are lots of stories around beyond their primary story. You meet so many interesting people and have all kinds of experiences. – Joe Sacco

141638. I tried to draw people more realistically, but the figure I neglected to update was myself. – Joe Sacco

141639. I try to ask visual questions. I’ll ask what someone was wearing, if that seems relevant. If possible, I’ll walk over the same ground that they’re depicting. Of course, I can never get it precisely as it was. – Joe Sacco

141640. And I think I find, I know a lot of people around, in different cities, and so it’s not – it might sound strange – but it’s not that hard to say good-bye, because I know there’s other people where I’m going. I can sort of fit in in a lot of places. – Joe Sacco

141643. There’s a lot of strength in the U.S., but there’s a lot of froth also. The froth will blow off. We’re going to have to face up to some realities that we’re not fully facing up to right now. – Jeffrey Sachs

141644. The great leaders of the second world war alliance, Franklin Roosevelt and Winston Churchill, understood the twin sides of destruction and salvation. Their war aims were not only to defeat fascism, but to create a world of shared prosperity. – Jeffrey Sachs

141645. The longer you wait, the less fun. If you wait until the bitter end, the whole economy can be destroyed. – Jeffrey Sachs

141646. The runs started in Thailand after the IMF intervened in such a dramatic way. Then the IMF came to Indonesia. – Jeffrey Sachs

141647. The Russian drama began at the end of 1991, when the Soviet Union mercifully ended. Russia and 14 other new countries emerged from the ruins of the Soviet Union. Every one of those 15 new states faced a profound historical, economic, financial, social and political challenge. – Jeffrey Sachs

141648. The truth of good economic doctoring is to know the general principles, and to really know the specifics. To understand the context, and also, to understand that an economy may need some tender loving care, not just the so-called hard truths, if it’s going to get by. – Jeffrey Sachs

141649. Unfortunately, the real focus in this country has not been on the rest of the world. It’s been on our own issues and our own problems. Fair enough. But it means that our simple hopes that everything will just work out abroad aren’t really coming to pass. – Jeffrey Sachs

141650. We had a booming stock market in 1929 and then went into the world’s greatest depression. We have a booming stock market in 1999. Will the bubble somehow burst, and then we enter depression? Well, some things are not different. – Jeffrey Sachs

141651. We were proposing, in a sense, that the rest of the world be made safe for American ideas, as they adopted intellectual property rights that gave patent protection to our very innovative economy. – Jeffrey Sachs

141652. The basic idea was that if a country would put its economy as an integrated piece of the world system, that it would benefit from that with economic growth. I concur with that basic view. – Jeffrey Sachs

141653. We’re going to have to forgive a great deal of the Soviet era debt. There’s no question about that. Let’s face up to that. We’re going to have to put in money if Russia is really going to consolidate a democracy. – Jeffrey Sachs

141654. The essence of Africa’s crisis is fundamentally its extreme poverty. – Jeffrey Sachs

141655. White House and State Department foreign-policy experts are overwhelmingly directed towards military and diplomatic issues, not development issues. – Jeffrey Sachs

141656. We, being the Western world, wouldn’t let Russia off the hook on debt. So there were demands on debt servicing in the early days until they ran out of reserves. There was no real aid program, just a fictional aid program. – Jeffrey Sachs

141662. If we did go into a recession, something that’s always possible for the U.S. or Europe, we could lower interest rates and expand the money supply without worrying about the price of gold. – Jeffrey Sachs

141663. If you have a lot of short-term debt, it means that all of that money can be demanded in a very short period of time. Technically, short-term debt means money that’s coming due within a year. Typically, it means money that’s coming due within 30 to 90 days. – Jeffrey Sachs

141664. In Asia, a lot of successful economies that had been living on their own saving, decided to open up their financial markets to international capital in the early 1990s. So here were countries doing quite well, but they decided they’d borrow a bit more and do even better. – Jeffrey Sachs

141665. Russia has gone through eight years of continuing economic pain. – Jeffrey Sachs

141666. In the early 1990s, when a lot of the developing world opened up to international capital flows… they ended up in very good long-term projects, but projects that weren’t going to pay off for five or 10 or 20 years. – Jeffrey Sachs

141667. It’s not so unusual to run out of someone else’s currency. – Jeffrey Sachs
