147192. But you answer, that the Constitution recognizes property in slaves. It would be sufficient, then, to reply, that this constitutional recognition must be void, because it is repugnant to the law of nature and of nations. – William H. Seward

147193. But there is a higher law than the Constitution, which regulates our authority over the domain, and devotes it to the same noble purposes. – William H. Seward

147194. But the Constitution was made not only for southern and northern states, but for states neither northern nor southern, namely, the western states, their coming in being foreseen and provided for. – William H. Seward

147195. But I deny that the Constitution recognizes property in man. – William H. Seward

147196. But assuming the same premises, to wit, that all men are equal by the law of nature and of nations, the right of property in slaves falls to the ground; for one who is equal to another cannot be the owner or property of that other. – William H. Seward

147197. I submit, on the other hand, most respectfully, that the Constitution not merely does not affirm that principle, but, on the contrary, altogether excludes it. – William H. Seward

147221. The reason I do workshops is so I can learn, and I am fortunate that I’ve probably gained more from the whole experience of teaching than any one participant has. It is all about asking. – John Sexton

147223. It had rained on some vivid green ferns in Maine and it was quite beautiful. I was moving the camera slightly and studying the ground glass. Looking at those 20 square inches, trying to find out just what were the right elements to include. – John Sexton

147224. It was amazing to watch him in the darkroom at an advanced age, still get excited when the results were pleasing. He still struggled like we all do in the darkroom and he struggled behind the camera, and when he had a success he was beaming. – John Sexton

147225. It was an experience that was exceptional. People frequently ask what it was like and it truly was inspiring. Sometimes during his lifetime, people would try and put him on a pedestal and that’s not where he wanted to be, but he was really a great individual. – John Sexton

147226. One of the workshop participants had shown me a single 8 X 10 photograph of a power plant where he actually was the general manager of this power cooperative. It was quite magical to me. – John Sexton

147227. So to me it’s very similar in terms of trying to distill within the image, those elements that are gonna form, hopefully, a compelling visual statement. – John Sexton

147228. In 1979, I received a phone call from Ansel Adams asking me if I would be willing to consider coming to work for him. I was teaching photography in Southern California at that point. – John Sexton

147230. We all start in this medium because of the magic and the challenge is to keep it going. – John Sexton

147231. There is a considerable amount of manipulation in the printmaking from the straight photograph to the finished print. If I do my job correctly that shouldn’t be visible at all, it should be transparent. – John Sexton

147232. Today my passion is still black and white. Today if I have an array of cameras in front of me the one I would reach for that I would feel most comfortable with would be a 4 X 5 View camera. I was once working in a sort of soft light situation. – John Sexton

147238. When I teach and meet a class for the first time, you realize that there are people there that have exceptional abilities or have the potential to do exceptional things and you never know who those people are. My job is to provide the best information I can. – John Sexton

147241. And friends of mine that had photography class in high school would develop the film and make prints and I’d take them back to the track and give ’em away or try and sell them. Much to my parents’ dismay, I majored in photography in college. – John Sexton

147242. And the camera position, the organization, looking for repeating forms, shapes, trying to set up a visual rhythm seemed to come very natural. All of a sudden I was in a forest of aluminum and steel rather than a forest that we might think of in a traditional sense. – John Sexton

147243. For me the printing process is part of the magic of photography. It’s that magic that can be exciting, disappointing, rewarding and frustrating all in the same few moments in the darkroom. – John Sexton

147248. I took a workshop from him a few months after that. That experience changed my whole approach to photography. At that workshop in Yosemite in 1973 I decided I wanted to try and see if I could pursue this for myself, and I’m still trying. – John Sexton

147249. I think the greatest photographers are the amateur photographers who do it because they love it. Arnold Newman is a good example; he is a consummate professional, but he’s also an ‘amateur’ in the pure sense of the word. – John Sexton

147250. I make photographs and still make photographs of the natural environment. It’s a love because that was part of my life before I was involved in photography. – John Sexton

147252. I remember being shocked when I came out from under the focusing cloth after a minute or two being submerged within that, at the startling green color of those ferns. – John Sexton

147253. I really don’t have any secrets. I’ve never met a photographer whose work I respected that had a secret because the secret lies within each and every one of us. – John Sexton

147254. I’ve auditioned for roles that involved voice, but I don’t like it. I feel like, I can’t do this in front of you. It seems so separate – I don’t share it with a lot of people. And I’m not into public performances. – Amanda Seyfried

147255. Singing was my first love and I never even considered it after I started acting, but now I’m bringing it back into my life. I trained from the ages of 11 to 17. When I moved to New York and got into serious acting, I just kind of abandoned the whole singing thing. But when I grew up in Pennsylvania I went to voice lessons once a week. – Amanda Seyfried

147256. I have jeans with holes in them and I have nice jeans. I have casual and I have dressy jeans. I’ve got all kinds. – Amanda Seyfried

147258. Marriage, at this point in my life? I’m not interested in it. Yet. Maybe later when I’m 35 or 40. – Amanda Seyfried

147259. Making people laugh is magic. I feel like if you have humility, then you can do anything in comedy. – Amanda Seyfried

147260. It’s really easy to avoid the tabloids. You just live your life and don’t hang out with famous people who are in the tabloids. Don’t do anything controversial and be a normal person. Have friends. And get a job and keep working. – Amanda Seyfried

147261. Intimacy is a wonderful thing. It’s frustrating that growing up I thought it was wrong. It isn’t. Exploring your sexuality is important when you’re growing up. – Amanda Seyfried

147262. Singing is a way of releasing an emotion that you sometimes can’t portray when you’re acting. And music moves your soul, so music is the source of the most intense emotions you can feel. When you hear a song and you’re acting it’s incredible. But when you’re singing a song and you’re acting it’s even more incredible. – Amanda Seyfried

147263. I’m most comfortable in my birthday suit. – Amanda Seyfried

147264. I have written some songs, but I would really call what I’ve done poetry at the end of the day, because I’ll sit with my guitar for hours and hours on end for, like, a week and then I won’t touch it for a month. I also just have no confidence. And you know what? I don’t have time, because I’d rather be doing other things, like knitting. – Amanda Seyfried

147265. I didn’t like fairy tales when I was younger. I found a lot of fairy tales scary. They really didn’t sit well with me. – Amanda Seyfried

147266. I did theater when I was nine, I think. Nine and ten, and that was just the beginning of my whole involvement in acting, my whole interest. I don’t really remember it that well. But it was really fun. I mean, it was exciting just to be on stage in front of an audience. It gives you a different kind of rush. – Amanda Seyfried

147267. Hollywood is just like high school. The popular people only like the other popular people. And the thing is, some people aren’t nice – or they’re nice, but only to your face, not elsewhere. – Amanda Seyfried

147268. I went to art school when I was little. I took ballet lessons. I played a little kick ball. I was sort of into everything because I had too much energy and I didn’t know where to put it. When I was a preteen, I got into singing, and became really obsessed with it. – Amanda Seyfried

147269. I’m not really into clubbing, I like to go to parties after events, and those do end up at clubs or bars. But in my free time I go grocery shopping or to the gym, or I talk on the phone. – Amanda Seyfried

147275. Motherhood has relaxed me in many ways. You learn to deal with crisis. I’ve become a juggler, I suppose. It’s all a big circus, and nobody who knows me believes I can manage, but sometimes I do. – Jane Seymour

147276. Music has brought me some of the highest moments of my life. I don’t even hear the music. I don’t even hear the notes. I’m not aware that someone has turned on a tape machine – I’m in another world. – Jane Seymour

147277. You cannot do everything at once, so find people you trust to help you. And don’t be afraid to say no. – Jane Seymour

147285. Malcolm was a firm believer in the value and importance of our heritage. He believed that we have valuable and distinct cultural traditions which need to be institutionalized so that they can be passed on to our heirs. – Betty Shabazz

147286. Two young doctors – one from Harvard and the other from Dartmouth – invited me to go to Mecca in my husband’s stead. And that is what helped put me back on track. – Betty Shabazz

147287. Thirty years ago dinner theatre used to be much more of a going concern than it is now. – Ted Shackelford

147288. It was unpredictable, good storytelling that brought you back each week. – Ted Shackelford

147289. Knots Landing is the best thing that ever happened to me. – Ted Shackelford

147290. My wife is Danish and we go to Denmark a couple of times a year. – Ted Shackelford

147291. On daytime they continue to revisit a lot of the same stuff while nighttime does move on and show development. – Ted Shackelford

147296. What happens if you’re the guy who’s been on the show ten years and is highly paid but they have nothing for you to do is that they bring in other people, and you become a supporting character to those people. – Ted Shackelford

147297. The decision as to why a show makes it has to do with politics and money. – Ted Shackelford

147299. If I could work with Joan Van Ark every day for the rest of my life I would. – Ted Shackelford

147321. We can still find middle ground, truly secure our borders, deal with those already here and address our labor needs. But those who advocate giving current illegal aliens and future guest workers a special path to citizenship must compromise. – John Shadegg

147322. Under current law, there is no additional penalty for someone who enters the United States illegally and then commits either a crime of violence or a drug trafficking offense. They simply come under the same penalty as we have in current law. – John Shadegg

147325. The good news is, Americans know firsthand the benefits of a free market – more choices, lower prices, higher quality – and there is no reason why we cannot help them see these same benefits in health care. – John Shadegg

147326. Putting a stop to internet gambling is a necessary reform that targets flagrant violations of state and federal laws. – John Shadegg

147327. Most previous immigrants came to the United States to become Americans, with no intention of returning home. They relinquished their ties with their homeland. English was their key to prosperity, and they worked hard to master it. – John Shadegg

147328. More than one-third of Mexicans in the United States own property in Mexico, nearly 80 percent send money home and 25 percent have a spouse in Mexico. Assimilation and becoming an American citizen are not the objective for many of them. – John Shadegg

147329. Health care comprises nearly 20 percent of our national economy, but outdated bureaucracy and red tape have stifled competition and raised costs. As a result, today more than 45 million are without any health coverage. – John Shadegg

147330. Global fuel and consumption, however, is projected to increase by 100 to 150 percent over the next 20 years, driven largely by the rapidly growing Chinese and Indian economies; and this growth and this increase in demand will force prices even higher. – John Shadegg

147332. From cell phones to computers, quality is improving and costs are shrinking as companies fight to offer the public the best product at the best price. But this philosophy is sadly missing from our health-care insurance system. – John Shadegg

147333. For example, in my own State of Arizona, an Israeli scientist is working with an Arizona company on a demonstration project involving a very fast-growing algae which can be used to power a biomass energy plan. – John Shadegg

147334. But with a rate of return of 1.6 percent or less, or a negative rate of return, our children and our grandchildren, if we do not make changes, will in fact not have a secure retirement. Indeed, they will not have the funds when they go to retire to even minimally get by. – John Shadegg

147335. Business owners have made a strong case to me that they need guest workers. But none has suggested that these workers should be placed on a path to citizenship. – John Shadegg

147352. Rehearsing a play is making the word flesh. Publishing a play is reversing the process. – Peter Shaffer

147353. They look so expectant, and then they look so depressed… that was the other great lesson that The Royal Hunt of the Sun taught me, it was the profundity that masked drama can achieve, that of course, the audience were not seeing masks moving at all. – Peter Shaffer

147354. Tragedy, for me, is not a conflict between right and wrong, but between two different kinds of right. – Peter Shaffer

147355. We… our war began September the 3rd 1939, with the invasion of Poland by Germany, and thereafter the great state of danger in England at that time, with the bombings, necessitated the evacuation of children. – Peter Shaffer

147356. You never quite know what’s going to strike your imagination, or something that won’t going to leave you alone, not going to leave alone, and this was one for me. – Peter Shaffer

147358. I was an accomplice in my own frustration. – Peter Shaffer

147359. Watching Italian opera, all those male sopranos screeching, stupid fat couples rolling their eyes about. That’s not love, it’s just rubbish. – Peter Shaffer

147360. I really believe that studying organization, even in the form of studying detective story organization, is very, very valuable for a playwright, a budding playwright. – Peter Shaffer

147361. And in fact, I think one of the best guides to telling you who you are, and I think children use it all the time for this purpose, is fantasy. – Peter Shaffer

147362. Black Comedy is a farce that is played in the dark, as you know, with the lights full on. It’s the Chinese convention of reversing light and dark, and exactly where anybody is at any given moment is the play. – Peter Shaffer

147363. But the first published thing I did was a detective story, detective novel, and I did that on my own. – Peter Shaffer

147364. I made, over the years in Cambridge, several very good American friends, and America appeared to me, a land of promise in every sense of that word, a land of freedom from the inhibitions and restrictions that I felt in England. – Peter Shaffer

147365. I think I did have fantasies about being an actor. In fact, I know I did. – Peter Shaffer

147366. I think people nowadays do tend to blame their parents for everything. – Peter Shaffer

147367. I think plays, like books, are endemic. They grow out of the soil of the writer and the place he’s writing about. I think, you just can’t move them about, you know. – Peter Shaffer

147751. I’m dating a woman now who, evidently, is unaware of it. – Garry Shandling

147824. There was a teacher who recognized that I was interested in cartooning and he was great. – Jonathan Shapiro

147825. I would think a sense of the absurd is more important for a political cartoonist, because that could define things like a sense of hypocrisy or a sense of the things one has to be skeptical about. – Jonathan Shapiro

147826. I think the eyes are very revealing and can expose a lot about a persons mood or character. – Jonathan Shapiro

147827. I see the cartoonist as contributing to the content, being critical, because we do poke holes in some of the dialogue and find new ways of seeing things. – Jonathan Shapiro

147828. I normally keep a series of draft in a catalogue type of book in which I scribble, sketch and draw ideas. – Jonathan Shapiro

147829. I eventually saw the satirical nature of caricaturing individuals. – Jonathan Shapiro

147832. Even people that I agree with can do something that would be a target for a bit of humor. – Jonathan Shapiro

147833. Certainly in cartooning I’m given huge free rein at the moment. – Jonathan Shapiro

147834. On one occasion in 1987 the security police came looking for me because of a drawing that I’d published. – Jonathan Shapiro

147835. I try not to change my political point of view from paper to paper. – Jonathan Shapiro

147836. We do, and there is a law in the United States – the Torture Convention – that prohibits the United States from deporting an individual to a country where there is a reasonable expectation that he will be subjected to torture – physical, mental or otherwise. – Jonathan Shapiro

147837. To make the child in your own image is a capital crime, for your image is not worth repeating. The child knows this and you know it. Consequently you hate each other. – Karl Shapiro

147838. Already old, the question Who shall die? Becomes unspoken Who is innocent? – Karl Shapiro

147839. But with exquisite breathing you smile, with satisfaction of love, And I touch you again as you tick in the silence and settle in sleep. – Karl Shapiro

147840. The good poet sticks to his real loves, those within the realm of possibility. He never tries to hold hands with God or the human race. – Karl Shapiro

147841. The doctor punched my vein, the captain called me Cain, upon my belly sat the sow of fear. – Karl Shapiro

147842. Poetry is innocent, not wise. It does not learn from experience, because each poetic experience is unique. – Karl Shapiro

147843. My soul is now her day, my day her night, So I lie down, and so I rise. – Karl Shapiro

147844. In the tight belly of the dead, Burrow with hungry head, And inlay maggots like a jewel. – Karl Shapiro

147845. Laughter and grief join hands. Always the heart Clumps in the breast with heavy stride; The face grows lined and wrinkled like a chart, The eyes bloodshot with tears and tide. Let the wind blow, for many a man shall die. – Karl Shapiro

147849. Theories crumble, but good observations never fade. – Harlow Shapley

147850. I was inspired to write this book by those who are sceptical of the power of freedom to change the world. – Natan Sharansky

147851. Of course, there can be serious injustices within free societies. – Natan Sharansky

147852. Non-democratic regimes always need to mobilize their people against external enemies in order to maintain internal stability. – Natan Sharansky

147853. My optimism is not based primarily on the successful march of democracy in recent times but rather is based on the experience of having lived in a fear society and studied the mechanics of tyranny that sustain such a society. – Natan Sharansky

147854. Just as the 99% of Soviet citizens who supported the Soviet regime in 1985 was no indication of what the people inside the USSR really thought, the army of true believers that we think we see in the Arab world is an illusion. – Natan Sharansky

147855. Japan is not a Western democracy. The Japanese have kept their traditions, culture and heritage, but they have joined the community of free nations. – Natan Sharansky

147856. It is not surprising, then, that in the decade since Oslo began, Arafat used all the resources placed at his disposal to fan the flames of hatred against Israel. – Natan Sharansky

147858. In contrast, fear societies are societies in which dissent is banned. – Natan Sharansky

147859. Arafat rejected the deal because, as a dictator who had directed all his energies toward strengthening the Palestinians hatred toward Israel, Arafat could not afford to make peace. – Natan Sharansky

147860. I have no doubt that given a real choice, the vast majority of Muslims and Arabs, like everyone else will choose a free society over a fear society. – Natan Sharansky

147861. I am optimistic that peace can be achieved in the region because I believe that every society on earth can be free and that if freedom comes to the Middle East, there can be peace. – Natan Sharansky

147862. Democratic leaders, whose power is ultimately dependent on popular support, are held accountable for failing to improve the lives of their citizens. Therefore, they have a powerful incentive to keep their societies peaceful and prosperous. – Natan Sharansky

147863. Can someone within that society walk into the town square and say what they want without fear of being punished for his or her views? If so, then that society is a free society. If not, it is a fear society. – Natan Sharansky

147864. By helping readers understand these mechanics, I hope they will appreciate why freedom is for everyone, why it is essential for our security and why the free world plays a critically important role in advancing democracy around the globe. – Natan Sharansky

147865. By focusing once and for all on helping the Palestinians build a free society, I have no doubt that an historic compromise between Israelis and Palestinians can be reached and that peace can prevail. – Natan Sharansky

147866. Believe me, the drug of freedom is universally potent. – Natan Sharansky

147867. It is important to remember that some of the most serious thinkers once thought that democracy was not compatible with the cultures of Germany, Italy, Japan, Latin America and Russia. – Natan Sharansky

147868. The message of the free world to any potential Palestinian leadership should be a simple one: Embrace democratic reform and we will embrace you. – Natan Sharansky

147869. The three main sources of scepticism are first, that not every people desires freedom; second, that democracy in certain parts of the world would be dangerous; and third, that there is little the world’s democracies can do to advance freedom outside their countries. – Natan Sharansky

147870. The two most important things that can be done to promote democracy in the world is first, to bring moral clarity back to world affairs and second, to link international policies to the advance of democracy around the globe. – Natan Sharansky

147871. There were no dissidents then in the USSR because they were all killed. – Natan Sharansky

147872. This scepticism is the same scepticism I heard a generation ago in the USSR when few thought that a democratic transformation behind the iron curtain was possible. – Natan Sharansky

147873. To understand why dictators have a problem with making peace – or at least a genuine peace – the link between the nature of a regime and its external behavior must be understood. – Natan Sharansky

147874. Unfortunately, little attention was paid to how Arafat ruled. In fact, some saw the harsh and repressive nature of Arafat’s regime as actually bolstering the prospects for peace. – Natan Sharansky

147875. Will dissent be permitted? The answer to that question will determine whether the society is a free society or a fear society. – Natan Sharansky

147876. The only peace that can be made with a dictator is once that must be based on deterrence. For today, the dictator may be your friend, but tomorrow he will need you as an enemy. – Natan Sharansky

147877. The central premise behind Oslo was that if Arafat were given enough legitimacy, territory, weapons and money, he would use his power to fight terror and make peace with Israel. – Natan Sharansky

147878. People may believe that there can be a society where dissent is not permitted, but which is nonetheless not a fear society because everyone agrees with one another and therefore no one wants to dissent. – Natan Sharansky

147879. Only weeks after Oslo began, when nearly all the world and most of Israel was drunk with the idea of peace, I argued that a Palestinian society not constrained by democratic norms would be a fear society that would pose a grave threat to Israel. – Natan Sharansky

147880. On the other hand, if the free world is concerned with how a new Palestinian leader governs, then the peace process will have a real chance to succeed. – Natan Sharansky

147881. When we are unwilling to draw clear moral lines between free societies and fear societies, when we are unwilling to call the former good and the latter evil, we will not be able to advance the cause of peace because peace cannot be disconnected from freedom. – Natan Sharansky

147882. Sometimes I feel my arm is like a swan’s neck – so weak. – Maria Sharapova

147883. A great tennis career is something that a 15-year-old normally doesn’t have. I hope my example helps other teens believe they can accomplish things they never thought possible. – Maria Sharapova

147884. I don’t follow other players or the tournaments they play. I have my own schedule and do my own thing. I never really think, ‘Oh, I want to be or play like so-and-so.’ I just like being myself. – Maria Sharapova

147885. I learned there’s a big difference between juniors and the pros. – Maria Sharapova

147886. I’m just like every other girl who likes to shop, likes to look good, likes to spend time with friends. – Maria Sharapova

147887. I’ve been playing against older and stronger competition my whole life. It has made me a better tennis player and able to play against this kind of level despite their strength and experience. – Maria Sharapova

147888. Well, fans always root for the underdog. – Maria Sharapova

147889. I’m not the next anyone, I’m the first Maria Sharapova. – Maria Sharapova

147890. What is our vision on this earth – war to the end of all generations and life by the sword? – Moshe Sharett

147891. When the Jewish state is established – it is very possible that the result will be transfer of Arabs. – Moshe Sharett

147892. Israel would not do that, both because we cannot afford to be accused by the world of aggression and because we cannot, for security and social reasons, absorb in our midst a substantial Arab population. – Moshe Sharett

147893. We have forgotten that we have not come to an empty land to inherit it, but we have come to conquer a country from people inhabiting it, that governs it by the virtue of its language and savage culture. – Moshe Sharett

147894. We don’t know what may yet happen to us, what military and political defeats we may yet have to face. – Moshe Sharett

147895. We are very anxious to bring the Jews of Morocco over and we are doing all we can to achieve this. But we cannot count on the Jews of Morocco alone to build the country, because they have not been educated for this. – Moshe Sharett

147896. The state of Israel must, from time to time, prove clearly that it is strong, and able and willing to use force, in a devastating and highly effective way. If it does not prove this, it will be swallowed up, and perhaps wiped off the face of the earth. – Moshe Sharett

147897. The opportunities which the present position open up for a lasting and radical solution of the most vexing problem of the Jewish state are so far-reaching as to take one’s breath away. – Moshe Sharett

147898. So we need people who will remain steadfast in any hardship and who have a high degree of resistance. – Moshe Sharett

147899. I have learned that the state of Israel cannot be ruled in our generation without deceit and adventurism. These are historical facts that cannot be altered. – Moshe Sharett

147900. Once the return tide starts, it will be impossible to stem it, and it will prove our undoing. – Moshe Sharett

147901. I saw clearly how those who saved the state so heroically and courageously in the War of Independence would be capable of bringing a catastrophe upon it if they are given the chance in normal times. – Moshe Sharett

147902. I imagine that the intention is to get rid of them. The interests of security demand that we get rid of them. – Moshe Sharett

147903. I explained that we would like to adjust our position on the Syrian question to theirs, as, in our view, they are the decisive factor in our relations with our neighbors, and Syria is unimportant. – Moshe Sharett

147904. Arabs respect only the language of force. – Moshe Sharett

147905. Our role in Israel is a pioneering one, and we need people with certain strength of fiber. – Moshe Sharett

147906. An there is always the question: is it really proven that retaliatory actions solve the security problem?. – Moshe Sharett

147907. I am against preventive war because it means measures by the UN against us. – Moshe Sharett

147908. As for now, we must not forget who would have to exchange the land? those villages which live more than others on irrigation, on orange and fruit plantations, in houses built near water wells and pumping stations, on livestock and property and easy access to markets. – Moshe Sharett

147909. As for the future, we are equally determined to explore all possibilities of getting rid, once and for all, of the huge Arab minority which originally threatened us. – Moshe Sharett

147910. As for the long-term future: I am prepared to see in this a vision, not a mystical way but in a realistic way, of a population exchange on a much more important scale and including larger territories. – Moshe Sharett

147911. Curious people who have become accustomed to think that one cannot sustain the moral of the army without giving it the freedom to shed blood from time to time. – Moshe Sharett

147912. Even of if a certain backlash is unavoidable, we must make the most of the momentous chance with which history has presented us so swiftly and so unexpectedly. – Moshe Sharett

147913. Fear is the main factor in Arab politics… There is no Arab who is not harmed by Jews’ entry into Palestine. – Moshe Sharett

147914. I am against intervention by a foreign power against us. – Moshe Sharett

147915. By the reduction of the Arabs on the one hand and Jewish immigration in the transition period on the other, we will ensure an absolute Hebrew majority in a parliamentary regime. – Moshe Sharett

147916. A reprisal of this magnitude… has never been carried out before. I paced back and forth in my room perplexed and completely depressed, feeling helpless. – Moshe Sharett

147917. I’m very wary about giving advice. I think it’s very dangerous to give advice to people, except if you know them very well. – Omar Sharif

147918. This is one of the factors that also made me very much want to make this film, apart from the fact that I loved it. If the boy hadn’t been Jewish and the man hadn’t been Muslim, it wouldn’t have made any difference to the film. I don’t think it’s relevant, really. – Omar Sharif

147919. This character in the film, these things that he says which sound like advice and wise things, they are very common for Orientals. It’s all the tradition. – Omar Sharif

147920. They didn’t accept me theory – not a theory, but just a thought I had about this character. I noticed that this man only exists when the boy comes into the grocery. – Omar Sharif

147921. I don’t know what sex appeal is. I don’t think you can have sex appeal knowingly. The people who seduce me personally are the people who seem not to know they’re seductive, and not to know they have sex appeal. – Omar Sharif

147922. There are lots of wonderful old Italian actors. You don’t need to take an Egyptian to play an Italian actor. – Omar Sharif

147923. Working gets in the way of living. – Omar Sharif

147924. The reason it has relevance is because I, as a popular Arab personality – the Arab people like me and respect me – thought it was time for me to make an ever so tiny statement about what I thought about this whole thing. – Omar Sharif

147925. My philosophy is that when I go out of my room, I’m prepared to love everybody I meet, unless they’re bad. – Omar Sharif

147926. Women know when they’ve got the menopause but men don’t quite know. They know it afterwards. – Omar Sharif

147927. I want to live every moment totally and intensely. Even when I’m giving an interview or talking to people, that’s all that I’m thinking about. – Omar Sharif

147928. I see only defects because I’m not following the scene as it were. I’m not following the other person. It’s like the best thing to clarify this is the theater. – Omar Sharif

147929. I love to be with my son and my grandchildren, like normal people. I have no particular idea of what I represent to other people. It’s very mysterious to me. I don’t understand it. – Omar Sharif

147930. I had too many big passions in life and it gets in the way of work. You can’t concentrate properly on the one thing. – Omar Sharif

147931. I don’t know what women are attracted to. I can’t tell, but certainly I have no notion of having sex appeal or being seductive in any way. – Omar Sharif

147932. I didn’t want to be a slave to any passion anymore. I gave up card playing altogether, even bridge and gambling – more or less. It took me a few years to get out of it. – Omar Sharif

147933. I can’t say I gave up totally my passion for women but almost. – Omar Sharif

147934. He read his mind. He’s a strange sort of man, isn’t he? It’s not just the advice and the wisdom that he has. – Omar Sharif

147935. I don’t think any actor feels comfortable watching themselves in movies. You must be very narcissistic. The problem with your own opinion of yourself is that contrary to the normal spectators, when you watch a film you are in, you only watch yourself. – Omar Sharif

147936. Like all Israelis, I yearn for peace. I see the utmost importance in taking all possible steps that will lead to a solution of the conflict with the Palestinians. – Ariel Sharon

147937. Netanyahu is pressured easily, gets into a panic, and loses his senses… to run a country like Israel a leader needs to have reason and judgment and nerves of steel, two traits he does not have. – Ariel Sharon

147938. The ongoing conflict between us has caused heavy suffering to both peoples. The future can and must be different. Both our peoples are destined to live together side by side, on this small piece of land. This reality we cannot change. – Ariel Sharon

147939. We extend our hand towards peace. Our people are committed to peace. We know that peace entails painful compromise for both sides. – Ariel Sharon

147940. Iran, Libya and Syria are irresponsible states, which must be disarmed of weapons of mass destruction, and a successful American move in Iraq as a model will make that easier to achieve. – Ariel Sharon

147941. A lie should be tried in a place where it will attract the attention of the world. – Ariel Sharon

147942. Israel may have the right to put others on trial, but certainly no one has the right to put the Jewish people and the State of Israel on trial. – Ariel Sharon

147943. There is no bullet-proof vest in my size. – Ariel Sharon

147944. The stuff we did under the name the Rentals got so chaotic. – Matt Sharp

147945. I really do believe in the influence of your surroundings. – Matt Sharp

147946. I’m kind of a one-note at a time, one finger keyboard player. – Matt Sharp

147947. If a little knowledge was a dangerous thing, a lot was lethal. – Tom Sharpe

147950. The right wing always mobilizes around constitutional amendments: the right to bear arms, school prayer. – Al Sharpton

147951. My ministry’s always been one of social activism. I think a responsible minister must be at some levels involved in the social order. – Al Sharpton

147952. James Brown became my father. He would talk to me the way a father talked to a son. He became the father I never had. – Al Sharpton

147953. It seems some have chosen to ignore or have simply forgotten the big-picture vision promoted by Dr. King and his kin. – Al Sharpton

147954. We have defeated Jim Crow, but now we have to deal with his son, James Crow Jr., esquire. – Al Sharpton

147955. It is true that Mr. Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation, after which there was a commitment to give 40 acres and a mule. That’s where the argument, to this day, of reparations starts. We never got the 40 acres. We went all the way to Herbert Hoover, and we never got the 40 acres. We didn’t get the mule. So we decided we’d ride this donkey as far as it would take us. – Al Sharpton

147956. If you play the theatrics too much, you get in the way of your own cause. – Al Sharpton

147957. Who defines terrorists? Today’s terrorist is tomorrow’s friend. – Al Sharpton

147958. We’re not willing to give black leaders second chances because, in most cases, we’re not willing to give them first chances. – Al Sharpton

147960. The United States government has the obligation to educate all young people in this country. – Al Sharpton

147961. The promise of America is one immigration policy for all who seek to enter our shores, whether they come from Mexico, Haiti or Canada, there must be one set of rules for everybody. We cannot welcome those to come and then try and act as though any culture will not be respected or treated inferior. We cannot look at the Latino community and preach “one language.” No one gave them an English test before they sent them to Iraq to fight for America. – Al Sharpton

147962. The dream was not to put one black family in the White house, the dream was to make everything equal in everybody’s house. – Al Sharpton

147963. The boxing world is full of all kinds of corruption. – Al Sharpton

147964. One of the reasons I get so much joy out of my own children’s childhoods is that I’m having my first childhood myself. – Al Sharpton

147966. My ordination in the Church of God in Christ was at age 9, and I later became a Baptist minister, which I am today. – Al Sharpton

147967. If you can get the proper definition of trouble, then we can find out who the real troublemakers are. – Al Sharpton

147968. If O.J. had been accused of killing his black wife, you would not have seen the same passion stirred up. – Al Sharpton

147969. If Charlton Heston can have a constitutional right carry a rifle, why can’t grandma have a constitutional right to health care? – Al Sharpton

147970. I’ve seen too much in life to give up. – Al Sharpton

147971. The United States has got to adopt a policy of befriending and creating allies around the world. – Al Sharpton

147972. I very rarely read any fiction. I love biographies; I read about all kinds of people. I love theology and some philosophy. – Al Sharpton

147977. I won vice president of my student body in high school. That doesn’t mean anything. – Al Sharpton

147978. I was there during the first elections in South Africa. I watched them take down the apartheid flag and raise the new flag. – Al Sharpton

147979. I was raised by a single mother who made a way for me. She used to scrub floors as a domestic worker, put a cleaning rag in her pocketbook and ride the subways in Brooklyn so I would have food on the table. But she taught me as I walked her to the subway that life is about not where you start, but where you’re going. That’s family values. – Al Sharpton

147984. Dr. King used Gandhi’s commitment to non-violence and to passive resistance. – Al Sharpton

147985. Bill Clinton strikes me as the kind of guy who goes wherever the polls lead him, rather than leading the polls. – Al Sharpton

147986. I do believe the Democratic party has moved far to the right. I do believe that the party has a bunch of elephants running around in donkey clothes. – Al Sharpton

147987. I was the first candidate to come out against this war, spoke at every anti-war march. – Al Sharpton

147988. If Pakistan has any ideas of annexing any part of our territories by force, she should think afresh. I want to state categorically that force will be met with force and aggression against us will never be allowed to succeed. – Lal Bahadur Shastri

147999. If you read my books, especially the Star Trek books and the Quest for Tomorrow books, you’ll see in them the core theme of the basic humanistic questions that Star Trek asked. – William Shatner
