143662. From the time I moved to San Francisco in 1967 to play with the Steve Miller Band, there was a lot of support in the music community for one cause or another, but this one was special because it was put on by people who understood where musicians’ hearts are. – Boz Scaggs

143663. I am not a jazz singer. I wouldn’t place myself on that footing. I wouldn’t even enter that arena. – Boz Scaggs

143676. Why in the world would you have it interpreted by nine lawyers? – Antonin Scalia

143677. What is a moderate interpretation of the text? Halfway between what it really means and what you’d like it to mean? – Antonin Scalia

143678. If you think aficionados of a living Constitution want to bring you flexibility, think again. You think the death penalty is a good idea? Persuade your fellow citizens to adopt it. You want a right to abortion? Persuade your fellow citizens and enact it. That’s flexibility. – Antonin Scalia

143679. If we’re picking people to draw out of their own conscience and experience a ‘new’ Constitution, we should not look principally for good lawyers. We should look to people who agree with us. When we are in that mode, you realize we have rendered the Constitution useless. – Antonin Scalia

143692. I was raised with those principals and values and ethics that came out of the men and women that served. But this generation doesn’t quite know; they haven’t been tested. – Jack Scalia

143693. We’re going to look awfully stupid if we give income tax relief to people who do not pay income taxes. – Joe Scarborough

143696. I see it all the time in politics. If a candidate gets caught in a lie, he quickly tries to change the subject by throwing more mud at his opponent. The mud keeps flying until some of the slanderous material sticks. – Joe Scarborough

143697. I mean when I was working shall we say with Disney, you know they sent me the script for the film Hercules and I had to imagine what all the characters looked like. And to develop those characters, so nothing exists visually when I get the script. – Gerald Scarfe

143700. So war is an extremely sad business, because the majority of people don’t want to be in it. – Gerald Scarfe

143701. So, I created these creatures called The Frightened Ones which in the film you see do have mask like kind of heads and they run beneath the ground to hide. Which is what in fact we did during the war. – Gerald Scarfe

143702. Well I was an asthmatic child. So that for most of my childhood I was in bed. Bedridden. – Gerald Scarfe

143703. Where as in animation you have to kind of do a series of drawings in between to complete the movement. – Gerald Scarfe

143711. And then I think they asked me to work on Wish You Were Here, which was the next album coming up. And I didn’t do anything for a long time. I had other projects, and I didn’t get around to doing anything for a bit. – Gerald Scarfe

143712. All the children had to wear a gas mask in case of a gas attack by the Germans. They tried to make the masks like Mickey Mouse faces so the children would like them. But I didn’t. They had big ears on them. – Gerald Scarfe

143713. And having suffered for part of the war when I was a child. I was too young to really understand what was going on but one of my favorite pieces of animation now is that Goodbye Blue Sky in The Wall because that deals directly with that period in time. – Gerald Scarfe

143714. I haven’t done a book for about 3 or 4 years now. – Gerald Scarfe

143721. The labour movement had the best opportunity in 50 years to transform not merely an industrial situation and win an important battle for workers in struggle, but an opportunity to change the government of the day. – Arthur Scargill

143722. You may see the emergence of a new political party from the body of the trade union movement which represents a very clear-cut socialist alternative policy and which gives expression to the views of the trade union movement in parliament. – Arthur Scargill

143724. The Iraqi military are able to deploy these weapons within 45 minutes of a decision to do so. – John Scarlett

143729. It’s kind of ironic that the two sports with the greatest characters, boxing and horse racing, have both been on the decline. In both cases it’s for the lack of a suitable hero. – Dick Schaap

143730. Today, it’s money. There’s no question about that. Unless you endorse a grill that cooks hamburgers and steaks, where else can you make the kind of money that you can make in the ring if you’re good? – Dick Schaap

143731. My top three were Jim Brown, Wilt Chamberlain and Bo Jackson. – Dick Schaap

143733. Some people who love boxing might love Mike Tyson, but people outside of the sport are generally repulsed by him and therefore, repulsed by the sport. – Dick Schaap

143734. Sugar Ray and talked about doing some articles together or writing a book together but dealing with Sugar Ray was a lot like fighting him. He would fake you in and then he’d drop you. – Dick Schaap

143735. Sugar Ray Robinson was at the top of the boxing world during the 1950’s when it seemed that he would either win or lose the championship about every three or four months. – Dick Schaap

143739. I began learning the sportswriting business very early in life. – Dick Schaap

143742. Cliches and adjectives permeated my prose. – Dick Schaap

143744. I came up with new leads for game stories by being observant and clever, by using the many gifts of the English language to intrigue and hook a reader. – Dick Schaap

143745. I did not choose necessarily on the basis of significance. If you have a vote for the most significant athlete, then you have Ali, then you have Babe Ruth, then you have Michael Jordan. – Dick Schaap

143746. I just can’t believe all the things I did that decade. – Dick Schaap

143747. I think on balance, Don King has been bad for boxing. I think he’s done some very good things and I think he did a heck of a job of promoting Ali but I think I could have promoted Ali. – Dick Schaap

143765. And this thesis is somewhat connected with general social and political observations, because it establishes the fact that the number of consumers is considerably larger than the number of producers, a fact which exercises a not inconsiderable social and political pressure. – Hjalmar Schacht

143766. But the memory of war weighs undiminished upon the people’s minds. That is because deeper than material wounds, moral wounds are smarting, inflicted by the so- called peace treaties. – Hjalmar Schacht

143767. But what you could perhaps do with in these days is a word of most sincere sympathy. Your movement is carried internally by so strong a truth and necessity that victory in one form or another cannot elude you for long. – Hjalmar Schacht

143812. The only hope is that our civilization will collapse at a certain point, as always happens in history. Then, out of barbarity, a renaissance. – Pierre Schaeffer

143813. The moment at which music reveals its true nature is contained in the ancient exercise of the theme with variations. The complete mystery of music is explained right there. – Pierre Schaeffer

143814. Morally, the world is both better and worse than it was. We are worse off than in the middle ages, or the 17th and 18th centuries, in that we have the atomic menace. – Pierre Schaeffer

143815. The impressionists, Debussy, Faure, in France, did take a few steps forward. – Pierre Schaeffer

143816. Sound is the vocabulary of nature. – Pierre Schaeffer

143817. People who share the same language, French or Chinese or whatever, have the same vocal cords and emit sounds which are basically the same, as they come from the same throats and lungs. – Pierre Schaeffer

143819. Noises have generally been thought of as indistinct, but this is not true. – Pierre Schaeffer

143820. Take a sound from whatever source, a note on a violin, a scream, a moan, a creaking door, and there is always this symmetry between the sound basis, which is complex and has numerous characteristics which emerge through a process of comparison within our perception. – Pierre Schaeffer

143821. Christ himself wrote nothing, but furnished endless material for books and songs of gratitude and praise. – Philip Schaff

143822. It is more than a book, it is an institution which rules the Christian world. – Philip Schaff

143823. Jesus Christ is the beginning, the middle, and the end of all. In the Gospels he walks in human form upon the earth, and accomplishes the work of redemption. – Philip Schaff

143824. The apostolic writings are of three kinds: historical, didactic, and prophetic. – Philip Schaff

143825. The living Church of the redeemed is his book. He founded a religion of the living spirit, not of a written code, like the Mosaic law. Yet his words and deeds are recorded by as honest and reliable witnesses as ever put pen to paper. – Philip Schaff

143826. To the first class belong the Gospels and Acts; to the second, the Epistles; to the third, the Revelation. – Philip Schaff

143827. The New Testament evinces its universal design in its very, style, which alone distinguishes it from all the literary productions of earlier and later times. – Philip Schaff

143828. The New Testament presents, in its way, the same union of the divine and human as the person of Christ. In this sense also ‘the word became flesh, and dwells among us.’ – Philip Schaff

143830. Vote counting and ballot collecting does not occur in the light of day. There are too many occasions when observers and opposing parties lose contact with the ballots. – Bob Schaffer

143831. Though there is growing division among the Ukrainian military ranks as to loyalty in this revolution, the possibility of violence looms over the entire situation. – Bob Schaffer

143832. There are many hands touching ballots after a voter drops his ballot into the ballot box. There is no guarantee of ballot secrecy for anyone, which makes the whole system vulnerable to intimidation and bribery. – Bob Schaffer

143833. The Russians have a lot at stake, and the power of Moscow pride should never be underestimated. – Bob Schaffer

143834. The Western media tends to place a lot of emphasis on official institutions in Ukraine such as its supreme court, the central election commission, and the parliament. In reality, the people of Ukraine now control their destiny. – Bob Schaffer

143835. Reducing the tax burden is necessary to produce economic growth. – Bob Schaffer

143836. One cannot help being impressed by the protesters. They have begun each day of the protest in Kiev in prayer and all activities are accomplished with a collective sense of respect, kindness, and an intention to conduct a peaceful revolution. – Bob Schaffer

143837. The recent history of Ukraine is replete with dead journalists, beaten journalists, news agencies being shut down, and politicians being injured or killed. Most are killed in mysterious auto accidents. – Bob Schaffer

143838. The objective of the demonstrators is to win the affection of the armed agents of the government. Most of the Kiev police have now pledged their support for the people. – Bob Schaffer

143839. The first thing the federal government can do to help is get out of the way. – Bob Schaffer

143840. The demonstrators in Ukraine will persevere and succeed, or grow tired, cold and fade. – Bob Schaffer

143841. The revolution has been dubbed The Orange Revolution, orange being the campaign color of Viktor Yushchenko. The demonstrators say they are tired of living under a corrupt government. – Bob Schaffer

143842. Salazar’s record is one of weakness; he hasn’t been a good attorney general. – Bob Schaffer

143843. As long as the opposition believes the world will stand with Ukraine’s democrat reformers, they will have the leverage and the courage to establish a legitimate republic under the leadership of Viktor Yushchenko. – Bob Schaffer

143844. Government is just spending too much money. – Bob Schaffer

143845. I would love to see the French spending money to restore Iraq. – Bob Schaffer

143846. In the late afternoons and early evenings, the crowd is easily over 1 million. That many people simply can’t fit in Independence Square. The demonstration spills in to the streets for several blocks. – Bob Schaffer

143847. It is unlikely Yanukovich won. If he did, his government made it impossible to determine. – Bob Schaffer

143848. My mother is Ukrainian. She immigrated to the U.S. from Canada as a child. – Bob Schaffer

143849. There is nothing to indicate any biological need for an exclusive primary bond; nothing to suggest that mothering cannot be shared by several people. – H. R. Schaffer

143850. Plan Colombia was supposed to reduce Colombia’s cultivation and distribution of drugs by 50 percent, but 6 years and $4.7 billion later, the drug control results are meager at best. – Jan Schakowsky

143851. As a first generation Jewish American, I have witnessed firsthand Jewish immigrants who have come to this Nation in order to create a better life for themselves, their families, and future generations. – Jan Schakowsky

143852. Well, I was a very strong opponent of the war, in fact, one of those who went door to door to my colleagues and thus achieved 60 percent of the Democrats voting no against this war. – Jan Schakowsky

143853. We need a vibrant Medicaid program and strategies to expand affordable access to health care for all, especially for the specialty care services that community health centers do not provide. – Jan Schakowsky

143854. Through educational programming, Jewish American History Month will help raise the awareness of a people, their history and contributions. It will help combat anti-Semitism, a phenomenon that is on the rise and that unfortunately still exists in our Nation. – Jan Schakowsky

143855. Three years into the war, tens of thousands of American troops remain targets of a growing Iraqi insurgency. – Jan Schakowsky

143856. There is a lot that happens around the world we cannot control. We cannot stop earthquakes, we cannot prevent droughts, and we cannot prevent all conflict, but when we know where the hungry, the homeless and the sick exist, then we can help. – Jan Schakowsky

143857. The House Republican leadership has simply run out of ideas. – Jan Schakowsky

143858. Since the birth of our Nation, no other right has been more important than having the ability to vote. Unfortunately, as history has shown, the denial of this right to minorities is a scar on our system of democracy. – Jan Schakowsky

143859. Simply raising fuel economy standards for passenger cars and light trucks to 33 miles per gallon would eliminate our oil imports from the Persian Gulf. – Jan Schakowsky

143860. Rather than proposing a forward-looking energy initiative, House Republicans continue to push Big Oil’s tired old ideas, ideas that will do absolutely nothing to lower gas prices for the American consumer. – Jan Schakowsky

143861. As a Jew I cannot sit idle while genocidal atrocities continue to unfold in Darfur, Sudan. – Jan Schakowsky

143862. In Illinois, community, migrant, homeless and public housing health centers operate 268 primary care sites and serve close to 1 million patients every year. – Jan Schakowsky

143863. I was proud to witness American Jewish organizations found the Save Darfur Coalition in June 2004 to mobilize a coordinated interfaith response to the ongoing humanitarian disaster. – Jan Schakowsky

143864. Handcuffing the ability of states and localities to develop clean fuels in the cheapest possible way, using local resources, is not sound or sensible policy. – Jan Schakowsky

143865. Each and every day health centers provide high-quality primary and preventive care to our constituents. – Jan Schakowsky

143866. Community health centers do a great deal with limited resources. They provide critical medical care services to many who would otherwise have no other place to go or would end up in an emergency room. – Jan Schakowsky

143867. Because the Bush Administration will set no timetable for the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq, both chambers of Congress acted to make sure our troops will not be left in Iraq indefinitely. – Jan Schakowsky

143868. And we’ve also had now the speaker of the Parliament in Iraq using blatantly anti-Semitic remarks, saying the Jews and sons of Jews are the problem of all the violence that’s in Iraq. – Jan Schakowsky

143869. Like other important immigrant communities, the Jewish experience in the United States represents the ideal of freedom and the promise and opportunity of America. – Jan Schakowsky

143870. As grateful as we are for all the work the community health centers do, it is also important that we recognize that they cannot solve the health care crisis facing our Nation by themselves. – Jan Schakowsky

143871. Lacey said if he wanted to read a daily or regular critiques of the Bush administration, he would read the New York Times, and that’s not what he wanted in the Village Voice. – Sydney Schanberg

143872. People in New York pay attention to national issues – a huge percentage of people. – Sydney Schanberg

143873. The mainstream press and television do a very soft job of covering the press, either as corporate entities or as news organizations. – Sydney Schanberg

143874. The Voice has always been an alternative paper. They have always understood that that was part of their role. – Sydney Schanberg

143875. This isn’t a little debate society. That’s high school stuff. – Sydney Schanberg

143876. Lacey had this huge chip on his shoulder. He walked into the room thinking that the people didn’t welcome him and didn’t like him. He gave the impression that he didn’t understand the Voice and New York, and he didn’t want to. – Sydney Schanberg

143877. You can criticize any news staff in some ways, but the one thing that you couldn’t call the Village Voice staff was a staff of stenographers, taking notes from public figures and just passing them on. – Sydney Schanberg

143878. My own reaction from a distance is that Pol Pot’s demise as the leader of the Khmer Rouge was inevitable, and that his own paranoia did him in as much as anything else. – Sydney Schanberg

143879. What happened was very sad. Mr. Lacey told the staff that he was disappointed and appalled that the front of the book was all commentary and that he wanted hard news. – Sydney Schanberg

143880. It’s very easy to say that something is a shadow of itself, and it may be true in some senses. – Sydney Schanberg

143881. If you believe in journalism, you don’t insult good journalists. – Sydney Schanberg

143882. I just don’t believe that you have to come in and insult people when you want to change things. – Sydney Schanberg

143883. I don’t see any move toward international pressure to stabilize the situation. – Sydney Schanberg

143884. I don’t know how you can do it, if you don’t recognition the media as a power center in America. – Sydney Schanberg

143885. I don’t judge myself by what someone says. – Sydney Schanberg

143886. I asked him, How could we have a press column if we can’t write about other work done in the press? – Sydney Schanberg

143887. Contradictory to my religion, I think, is journalism. – Sydney Schanberg

143888. As I understand it, Lacey has dismissed all of the fact checkers. – Sydney Schanberg

143889. Pol Pot carried out through the years enormous purges against his own followers because of his paranoia. – Sydney Schanberg

143890. Lacey didn’t like it, even though he was born here, I understand. I mean, he was born in Brooklyn. He told the staff that they better prepare themselves to say goodbye to some of their friends. – Sydney Schanberg

143891. Sometimes the laughter in mothering is the recognition of the ironies and absurdities. Sometimes, though, it’s just pure, unthinking delight. – Barbara Schapiro

143892. The true portrait of a man is a fusion of what he thinks he is, what others think he is, what he really is and what he tries to be. – Dore Schary

143893. By vulgarity I mean that vice of civilization which makes man ashamed of himself and his next of kin, and pretend to be somebody else. – Solomon Schechter

143894. You cannot be anything if you want to be everything. – Solomon Schechter

143895. I have broken a lot of stories. – Robert Scheer

143896. What Clinton severed with his welfare reform was the obligation of the federal government to step in when the states failed and to monitor these programs. – Robert Scheer

143897. Well, what happened is that I had been the subject of vicious attacks by Bill O’Reilly and Rush Limbaugh. – Robert Scheer

143898. We talk about a free press. These people hide, they make a lot of money off the media. They hide behind the slogans of free press, and then they can come out with crap like that. It’s just garbage. It’s insulting to the readers. – Robert Scheer

143899. They know that the column resonates in the community. They know that people like it, and yet they don’t have room for one column once week that consistently got it right. – Robert Scheer

143900. So this guy, Jeff Johnson, who is an accountant who cares nothing at all about a free press and cares nothing about journalism, he’s a right winger who supported the war, you know, who two years ago told people he couldn’t stand a word that I wrote. – Robert Scheer

143901. The publisher has told – you know, if these editors, Andres Martinez and Nick Goldberg, were the least bit honest about this, they would tell you the publisher has told them he wants the editorial page to be conservative. – Robert Scheer

143902. When Howard Dean started saying some honest things, they hung him. – Robert Scheer

143903. The paper nominated me 12 or 13 times for the Pulitzer Prize. – Robert Scheer

143904. The issue I highlight in the book is welfare reform. – Robert Scheer

143905. The decision came from the publisher. It certainly was cleared by Chicago. And then they come out with these fine sounding words about relation to readers and their obligation. It has nothing to do with that. – Robert Scheer

143906. That means presenting the issues in certain ways that will appeal to those people and then becoming a prisoner of your own language and thought process. That has always happened – it’s just been intensified. – Robert Scheer

143907. What passes for investigative journalism is finding somebody with their pants down – literally or otherwise. – Robert Scheer

143908. And new people come in, and it doesn’t go along with their politics, and they fire me, end the column, silence a voice in Los Angeles. They can’t silence it nationally, but they are able to do it there. – Robert Scheer

143909. I teach at USC, and it’s obvious to anyone who teaches college students that they don’t cover much modern history and certainly not the modern presidency. – Robert Scheer

143910. Much of what candidates have to do is raise money and appeal to constituencies or interest groups that can provide that money. – Robert Scheer

143911. And the big issue here, I think, is that the publisher took over the editorial pages, a guy named Jeff Johnson. He’s an accountant from Chicago, doesn’t know anything about what newspapers are supposed to be about, and he made a decision to get rid of the column. – Robert Scheer

143912. Even with the best of intentions, even when they’re very smart and knowledgeable – as opposed to George W., who is neither – it doesn’t seem to matter. – Robert Scheer

143913. For example, I spent a lot of time with Reagan, both before he ran for governor and when he was running for president. As a print reporter without the cameras, I was able to really test the quality of their minds and their knowledge base. – Robert Scheer

143914. I talked to Reagan for about six hours all told. and Reagan was willing to go along with it. He didn’t look at his watch, and he didn’t allow his campaign aides to cut it off. – Robert Scheer

143915. I was a finalist for the Pulitzer as a reporter. – Robert Scheer

143916. I was able to do something that people can’t do these days, which is to have quality time with the guys who were trying to be president and a number of them who got the job. – Robert Scheer

143917. It had run as a column – I had worked at the paper since 1976, but the column had been running for 13 years, and I think it was a strong column, criticizing the war when the paper was supporting it. – Robert Scheer

143918. I’ve been with the paper for almost 30 years. – Robert Scheer

143919. For instance, Clinton who was unquestionably the smartest of the bunch I talked to – both the ones who made it and didn’t. He had a great interest in policy. – Robert Scheer

143920. The important thing is to do good work, no matter what medium you do it in. – Roy Scheider

143921. Freedom is a muscle… you have to exercise it. – Roy Scheider

143922. You read a lot about movies with budgets of $25 to 30 million. Hell, if a studio can piss away that kind of money, why not let ’em piss on me? – Roy Scheider

143923. Peace is when time doesn’t matter as it passes by. – Maria Schell

143924. I think there’s a poet who wrote once a tragedy by Shakespeare, a symphony by Beethoven and a thunderstorm are based on the same elements. I think that’s a beautiful line. – Maximilian Schell

143925. I just think the word interview, although it is the view between two people exchanged, became a sort of cliche. You ask questions and the other one answers. – Maximilian Schell

143926. Well, I did Marlene 15 years ago and that’s in the style. It’s somehow similar and not similar because Marlene was much more aggressive, funny and sad. – Maximilian Schell

143927. We should never forget that Hollywood was built by Europeans, and the old Jewish boys from Eastern Europe. – Maximilian Schell

143928. The interesting thing is that I found scenes which I put together which could appeal to almost every woman, or apply to almost every woman after the war. Falling in love, dancing, marrying. – Maximilian Schell

143929. Music in this film is a very important part. – Maximilian Schell

143930. I’m always happy when I’m left alone, but if somebody comes and is nice, then we talk. – Maximilian Schell

143931. A conversation goes sometimes into personal things and that’s nicer. You look to each other and you have a different picture, you get into a relationship. – Maximilian Schell

143932. I played piano, I learned a lot about music. – Maximilian Schell

143933. I did have fun, for example, in The Black Hole which was very popular among youngsters. – Maximilian Schell

143934. First love is first love, first marriage is first marriage, disappointment is disappointment. – Maximilian Schell

143935. Except here it’s more power, more energy, younger and also in Europe it’s still not only entertainment. Theater or films are looked at as a moral institution. That’s why maybe they’re so poetic. Here it’s clear entertainment. – Maximilian Schell

143936. And it’s interesting, but I’m always interested in the story behind the story. – Maximilian Schell

143937. And in reality, I don’t think it’s a real documentary. It’s more a story of her life. It’s a story of survival. It’s a story of the time in which she lived. The story of success and failure. – Maximilian Schell

143938. I never played the right roles, or very rarely got the right roles offered, except on stage. – Maximilian Schell

143939. Architecture in general is frozen music. – Friedrich von Schelling

143940. There’s an entire flight simulator hidden in every copy of Microsoft Excel 97. – Bruce Scheneier

143941. When a big company lays you off, they often give you a year’s salary to ‘go pursue a dream.’ If you’re stupid, you panic and get another job. If you’re smart, you take the money and use the time to figure out what you want to do next. – Bruce Scheneier

143942. People don’t understand computers. Computers are magical boxes that do things. People believe what computers tell them. – Bruce Scheneier

143943. I am regularly asked what the average Internet user can do to ensure his security. My first answer is usually ‘Nothing; you’re screwed’. – Bruce Scheneier

143944. If you are a musician and you don’t show any interest on the business level then you are actually vulnerable and people will rip you off. They will sweet talk you into anything. – Michael Schenker

143945. The music is a personal expression, like art. It is something that you like doing that comes from within, and is an expression that comes from God. That is why artists are beautiful and why people who copy are not really artistic. – Michael Schenker

143946. Phil has always been a fighter. He was getting in fights all the time. I told him that if he ever hit me then I would leave the band. He wanted to find out if I was telling him the truth. He hit me so I left and that is how UFO split up. – Michael Schenker

143947. It would be a dream come true if I could just go from studio to studio and play solos. – Michael Schenker

143948. In the past, I have not been able to hear myself. I play with feeling so I need to hear what is coming out of the amplifier to inspire me; I don’t just play mechanically. – Michael Schenker

143949. In order to get somewhere in life, you need to have a vision. The vision brings you to the table. Without a vision, you just do what everybody else does and you are just there. – Michael Schenker

143950. If you don’t get on the field and play then you will be missing out. – Michael Schenker

143951. If everyone would look for that uniqueness then we would have a very colorful world. – Michael Schenker

143952. If you are in a band like my brother, Rudolf, who is in the Scorpions, then you have a kind of umbrella and you cover each other. You have five people to discuss things with and you are all in the same boat, and therefore make much wiser choices. – Michael Schenker

143953. When you are live you never know what is going to happen. – Michael Schenker

143954. The other thing that has made playing live for me more enjoyable is the audience. I never knew I had such heartfelt, loving fans. – Michael Schenker

143955. I have always known that it comes from deep within myself. I always knew what sound I wanted, and how I wanted to play. I knew everything, it just had to be developed. – Michael Schenker

143956. If you copy then it is not self-expression. – Michael Schenker

143957. I view life as a learning experience. It is not so much all about music; it is about what happens when you are doing the music. – Michael Schenker

143958. I believe that every person has uniqueness – something that nobody else has. – Michael Schenker

143959. Depression is something that makes you lose your sight. – Michael Schenker

143960. I have made stage adjustments which allow me to hear myself better onstage so that has made playing live much more enjoyable. – Michael Schenker

143961. I love to be creative. – Michael Schenker

143962. I need to hear what I am doing in order to create the next note. If I don’t hear it then I can’t feed myself. – Michael Schenker

143963. I play with feeling so I need to hear what is coming out of the amplifier to inspire me; I don’t just play mechanically. I need to hear what I am doing in order to create the next note. If I don’t hear it then I can’t feed myself. – Michael Schenker

143964. I practiced for at least two hours every day for twenty years, before then I practiced maybe four to five hours a day, and before then 14 hours a day. It was all I had ever done. – Michael Schenker

143965. I prefer playing in the studio because you have much more control over things. – Michael Schenker

143966. Even when I was very depressed, I could hold on to something. It seems that I have always had that streak of gold that I could hold on to. – Michael Schenker

143967. The world is lousy with Arab princes. And if we could have got Osama bin Laden, and saved at some point down the road 3,000 American lives, a few less Arab princes would have been OK in my book. – Michael Scheuer

143968. Saudi Arabia was, until just a few years ago, probably one of the most safe countries on earth. And now the paper is daily full of activities and shootouts between Islamists who supported Osama bin Laden and the government there. – Michael Scheuer

143969. The treatise found that he was perfectly within his rights to use them. – Michael Scheuer

143970. ‘The war in Iraq – if Osama was a Christian – it’s the Christmas present he never would have expected. – Michael Scheuer

143971. Until we respect bin Laden, we are going to die in numbers that are probably unnecessary. – Michael Scheuer

143972. We are tangled in a very significant Islamic insurgency in Iraq. – Michael Scheuer

143973. Where he was, where his cells were, where his logistical channels were, how he communicated. Who his allies were. Who donated to them. I think it’s fair to say the entire range of sources were brought to bear. – Michael Scheuer

143974. Our leaders continue to say that we’re making strong headway against this problem. And I think we are not. – Michael Scheuer

143975. You couldn’t have done this without killing an Arab prince. – Michael Scheuer

143976. Sister Virginia used to say, ‘You’ll be known by the company you keep.’ – Michael Scheuer

143977. Without the connotation good or bad, bin Laden’s a great man in the sense that he’s influenced the course of history. – Michael Scheuer

143978. No one wants to abandon the Israelis. But I think the perception is, and I think it’s probably an accurate perception, that the tail is leading the dog – that we are giving the Israelis carte blanche ability to exercise whatever they want to do in their area. – Michael Scheuer

143979. No one should be surprised when Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda detonate a weapon of mass destruction in the United States. I don’t believe in inevitability. But I think it’s pretty close to being inevitable. – Michael Scheuer

143980. Most dramatically, and perhaps least noticed, is the violence inside Saudi Arabia itself. – Michael Scheuer

143981. It’s not a choice between war and peace. It’s a choice between war and endless war. It’s not appeasement. I think it’s better even to call it American self-interest. – Michael Scheuer

143982. I’m much better informed than Mr. Clarke ever was about the nature of the intelligence that was available again Osama bin Laden and which was consistently denigrated by himself and Mr. Tenet. – Michael Scheuer

143983. I think Mr. Clarke had a tendency to interfere too much with the activities of the CIA, and our leadership at the senior level let him interfere too much. So criticism from him I kind of wear as a badge of honor. – Michael Scheuer

143984. Bin Laden is remarkably eager for Americans to know why he doesn’t like us, what he intends to do about it and then following up and doing something about it in terms of military actions. – Michael Scheuer

143985. Bin Laden does reprehensible activities, and we should surely take care of that by killing him as soon as we can. But he’s not an irrational man. He’s a very worthy enemy. He’s an enemy to worry about. – Michael Scheuer

143986. And if that’s what the American people want, then that’s what the policy should be, of course. But the idea that anything in the United States is too sensitive to discuss or too dangerous to discuss is really, I think, absurd. – Michael Scheuer

143987. A nuclear weapon of some dimension, whether it’s actually a nuclear weapon, or a dirty bomb, or some kind of radiological device. Yes, I think it’s probably a near thing. – Michael Scheuer

143988. The uniqueness of the unit was more or less that it was focused on a single individual. It was really the first time the agency had done that sort of effort. – Michael Scheuer

143989. One of the great intellectual failures of the American intelligence community, and especially the counterterrorism community, is to assume if someone hasn’t attacked us, it’s because he can’t or because we’ve defeated him. – Michael Scheuer

143990. Eating is not merely a material pleasure. Eating well gives a spectacular joy to life and contributes immensely to goodwill and happy companionship. It is of great importance to the morale. – Elsa Schiaparelli

143991. Women dress alike all over the world: they dress to be annoying to other women. – Elsa Schiaparelli

143995. Your face is your calling card, but you’re not so famous that you can’t go out. – Vincent Schiavelli
