145802. Create an atmosphere for the Spirit. The Spirit must be present. – Richard G. Scott

145803. A quiet impression could be a personal instruction from the Lord. It is personal and private. It comes from the Lord. Why is it important to keep sacred writings private? Because then He will give us more. – Richard G. Scott

145804. The Book of Mormon is concrete and solid, they can hold it, and they can visualize that they have to pray to decide if this physical thing is true. There is no room for interpretation. – Richard G. Scott

145816. Some people like to do everything always the same thing. That’s another way: To do the same thing. – Ridley Scott

145817. Same thing with film, by the time you’ve finished shooting and you’ve really been into everything, you’ve touched up everything in the editing room. You’ve gone in there and taken little bits from everything. – Ridley Scott

145818. Politics is very interesting and always leads to conflict. – Ridley Scott

145819. Cast is everything. – Ridley Scott

145820. Digital is a different world because you are sitting at home and a hi tech piece of equipment today is within reach of most people, so they are watching a pretty hi tech version of whatever you’ve done. – Ridley Scott

145821. Do what you haven’t done is the key, I think. – Ridley Scott

145823. I do a pretty good job at casting actually. – Ridley Scott

145829. I was always amazed about how much I could finally squeeze into a thirty second commercial. – Ridley Scott

145839. That’s part of the policy: To keep switching gears. – Ridley Scott

145840. A hit for me is if I enjoy the movie, if I personally enjoy the movie. – Ridley Scott

145841. And anyway, it’s only movies. to stop me I think they’ll ahve to shoot me in the head. – Ridley Scott

145842. And I maintain good relationships with all the studios so I’ve never been bullied into any cut, frankly. – Ridley Scott

145843. Blade Runner appears regularly, two or three times a year in various shapes and forms of science fiction. It set the pace for what is essentially urban science fiction, urban future and it’s why I’ve never re-visited that area because I feel I’ve done it. – Ridley Scott

145844. But Gladiator is one of my favourite adventures because I really loved going into the world. I loved creating the world to the degree where you could almost smell it. – Ridley Scott

145858. We are very near the end, but have not and will not lose our good cheer. – Robert Falcon Scott

145859. We are weak, writing is difficult, but for my own sake I do not regret this journey, which has shown that Englishmen can endure hardships, help one another, and meet death with as great a fortitude as ever in the past. – Robert Falcon Scott

145860. We shall stick it out to the end, but we are getting weaker of course and the end cannot be far. It seems a pity, but I do not think I can write more. For God’s sake, look after our people. – Robert Falcon Scott

145861. But we have been to the Pole and we shall die like gentlemen. I regret only for the women we leave behind. – Robert Falcon Scott

145862. But take comfort in that I die at peace with the world and myself – not afraid. – Robert Falcon Scott

145863. As one looks across the barren stretches of the pack, it is sometimes difficult to realise what teeming life exists immediately beneath its surface. – Robert Falcon Scott

145865. But if we have been willing to give our lives to this enterprise, which is for the honour of our country, I appeal to our countrymen to see that those who depend on us are properly cared for. – Robert Falcon Scott

145866. We don’t have any CGI with any of the car stuff. I think it’s a real experience when you see this car going through really fast really wild and you see me driving a lot of the times and also a big chase in downtown Atlanta. It’s just incredible. – Sean William Scott

145867. We have the best driver in the world in drifting and best guy in rally racing and stuff like that. So obviously there’s a lot of stuff that I didn’t do, but there’s a lot of really incredible things that I don’t think we’ve ever seen an actor do. – Sean William Scott

145868. This was a really big opportunity. This script was even mediocre. The idea was great, but Jay came on with his guys made it great and very specific. It all came together well. – Sean William Scott

145869. So the first thing that I thought about was, ‘How is this car going to handle?’ But then after I’d been driving with it and practicing with it and I accomplished that, then I just kind of sat back. – Sean William Scott

145870. I thought it would be a lot of fun and I wasn’t going to do the movie without Johnny. The studio suggested a couple people, and I’d never met Johnny, but I thought we’d be a perfect team for this movie because we’re both a little bit unpredictable. – Sean William Scott

145871. I think he’s much funnier in many ways than some of the things that I’ve done. Because it’s a little bit more layered. He’s constantly trying to teach Luke what he thinks are really deep philosophical ideas, but they’re really simple. – Sean William Scott

145872. I just thought it could make a really cool movie. It’s not that it’s just a buddy comedy but it’s all about two guys hating each other and towards the end they’re good friends. I liked that these two guys were best friends from the very beginning, and they’re crazy. – Sean William Scott

145873. I don’t think I had a Catherine Bach poster, but I know a lot of my friends desecrated those, big time. – Sean William Scott

145874. Ever since the first ‘American Pie,’ I’ve always been happy to just have an opportunity, I just didn’t think it was going to be with comedies. Now I really like it. – Sean William Scott

145875. And getting stunt coordinator Dan Bradley and everybody from the whole ‘Bourne Supremacy’ crew, I think was real cool for our film because we do a bunch of really big jumps in this movie. – Sean William Scott

145876. I’m a method actor. – Seann William Scott

145877. I think it’s very clear that the American people are frustrated with this move toward socialism. And so whether you’re back or white, if you believe that the conservative construct is in the best interest of our future, than you too would be voting with Republicans, and if you had the opportunity to run you’d join us as well. – Tim Scott

145878. We need the private sector to create jobs. If the government could create jobs Communism would have worked, but it didn’t. – Tim Scott

145879. As I have traveled throughout my Congressional district, the one thing I heard loud and clear was simply please stop spending money you do not have, rein in spending, live within a budget. – Tim Scott

145880. Certainly I feel like I’m the tip of the arrow at times because certainly the national media wants to talk about the fact that I’m a black Republican and some people think of that as zany that a black person would be a conservative but to me what is zany is any person black, white, red, brown or yellow not being a conservative. – Tim Scott

145881. I see myself as a person who wants to serve the constituents within my district and find a way to move those who are not in our position philosophically to our position. – Tim Scott

145882. If our message reaches the kitchen tables, we are in good shape. – Tim Scott

145883. If you look at the fact that the best chance we have for a good economy is the private sector. The government cannot create jobs. If the government could create jobs, then Communism would have worked. But didn’t work. So what we have to do is allow the private sector and the entrepreneurial spirit to lead us back to a job-filled recovery. – Tim Scott

145884. We do not have a revenue problem in D.C. or this county. We have a prioritization problem. When you create the priorities you fund the priorities of the country and you stop spending money when you get to zero. – Tim Scott

145885. We have to attack those things which stand in the way of America progress. And what stands in the way of American progress right now is the federal government. – Tim Scott

145886. I don’t necessarily believe there’s a message in the fact that I’m an African-American Republican. I think there is a message that America as a whole, we are now awake. We are looking at a political construct and we’re fairly disappointed. I think the message is no matter where you come from in this country, there is great potential. – Tim Scott

145887. We don’t ever want IT to be the thing that holds GM back. – Tony Scott

145888. I thought that subtitles are boring because they’re there generally to serve us with information to make you understand what people are saying in a different language. – Tony Scott

145895. All my movies, like Revenge, are under two hours. – Tony Scott

145897. I have a short attention span. – Tony Scott

145898. I make a movie because it’s something that inspires me. – Tony Scott

145899. Out of the total of 11 movies, I got slammed. – Tony Scott

145900. I think we’re lucky because there are very few people in life who get to do what we’re doing. – Tony Scott

145901. There is a vulgar incredulity, which in historical matters, as well as in those of religion, finds it easier to doubt than to examine. – Walter Scott

145902. O, what a tangled web we weave when first we practise to deceive! – Walter Scott

145903. O! many a shaft, at random sent, Finds mark the archer little meant! And many a word, at random spoken, May soothe or wound a heart that’s broken! – Walter Scott

145904. Of all vices, drinking is the most incompatible with greatness. – Walter Scott

145905. One crowded hour of glorious life is worth an age without a name. – Walter Scott

145907. Success or failure in business is caused more by the mental attitude even than by mental capacities. – Walter Scott

145908. To all, to each, a fair good-night, and pleasing dreams, and slumbers light. – Walter Scott

145909. The race of mankind would perish did they cease to aid each other. We cannot exist without mutual help. All therefore that need aid have a right to ask it from their fellow-men; and no one who has the power of granting can refuse it without guilt. – Walter Scott

145910. ‘Tis sweet to know there is an eye will mark our coming, and look brighter when we come. – Walter Scott

145917. If you once turn on your side after the hour at which you ought to rise, it is all over. Bolt up at once. – Walter Scott

145918. If a farmer fills his barn with grain, he gets mice. If he leaves it empty, he gets actors. – Walter Scott

145919. He that climbs the tall tree has won right to the fruit, He that leaps the wide gulf should prevail in his suit. – Walter Scott

145931. What I have to say is far more important than how long my eyelashes are. – Walter Scott

145951. The British system had requirements, including Latin. I’m not positive you ever had to know Greek, but there are certainly kinds of curricula where you had to know Greek too. I think in Britain there was the most mindless, repetitive sort of learning. – William Scott

145957. Every painting I do is related to the last one: it may be a continuation of a previous painting or it may be a reaction against it. – William Scott

145958. On occasion I have drawn as a release from painting. The economy in using paper, pencil, charcoal and crayon can help towards a greater gamble and higher rewards. I also find that drawing can generate ideas more rapidly than painting. – William Scott

145970. The Iraqi elections were an important first step. – Brent Scowcroft

145971. But, if you believe we should go around the world overturning regimes to make little United States, I don’t agree with that, because I don’t think we’re capable of doing that. – Brent Scowcroft

145972. If Iraq were to descend into chaos, the Europeans would feel the effects just as much as we would. – Brent Scowcroft

145981. Progress is only possible if the United States and its allies work together. – Brent Scowcroft

145982. Saddam’s ouster will not necessarily lead to the same result, since Iraq lacks democratic traditions. Democracy doesn’t just consist of holding elections. – Brent Scowcroft
