154365. The basic premise of this is that, yes, people have learned to clone each other, but that cloning is illegal. Not that it’s bad, just that the law as it is now, is that if you die, you’re dead. – Roger Spottiswoode

154366. The script is very good because the things that happen in it are very believable to me. It doesn’t presuppose that the world has changed very much. You don’t have to think that you’re in a different world. – Roger Spottiswoode

154373. We have got thousands of nuclear weapons in order to achieve deterrence. – John Spratt

154374. We can have tax cuts, but when we have tax cuts and do not have a surplus, the amount of the tax cut goes straight to the bottom line, adds to the deficit, and the deficit adds to the national debt, and sooner or later, the debt has to be paid. – John Spratt

154375. Three big assumptions proved wrong: one, that the Iraqi people would welcome us as liberators; two, that oil would soon pay for Iraqi’s rebuilding; and, three, that we have plenty of troops, weapons, and equipment for the postwar situation. – John Spratt

154376. This war so far has cost us $125 billion and counting, because largely we decided to do it on our own, with only the United Kingdom as a paying, fully participating partner. – John Spratt

154377. The young in this country, and you fellows are young by my reckoning, have a right to be concerned about the course that our government, the Federal Government, is taking under President Bush. – John Spratt

154378. And it raises a fundamental question: How long can we move the world in one direction while we move in another direction, and do we want to backslide into an era that we finally emerged from where we had a nuclear weapon for every tactical mission? – John Spratt

154379. Our country, the United States of America, may be the world’s largest economy and the world’s only superpower, but we stretch ourselves dangerously thin by taking on commitments like Iraq with only a motley band of allies to share the burden. – John Spratt

154381. I am not disputing the need for this money. What I am disputing and calling attention to is the fact that we are taking the tab for defense in our time against terrorists in the Middle East and elsewhere and shoving this tab off onto our children. – John Spratt

154382. Domestic discretionary spending on education and health care and the environment has been growing at 2 to 3 percent a year. He says we have to rein it in, but he ignores the spending category that is the big spike in the budget. – John Spratt

154383. Democrats and Republicans alike support our military personnel. – John Spratt

154384. As costs mount, in lives and dollars, it is natural to second guess, but one lesson I hope we have learned is that the U.S. cannot go it alone in a policy that leaves American troops taking all the risk and American taxpayers paying all of the costs. – John Spratt

154385. Since the Pentagon underestimated the number of troops required after the end of hostilities, we were not prepared to prevent looting or to guard hundreds of weapons dumps spread throughout the country. – John Spratt

154397. Well I forgot how different it was because I’ve been here for about four or five years. It’s a big load off my shoulders now. Now that I’m there, I’m like, man, I can breathe a little bit, you know? – Latrell Sprewell

154398. I think was able to do a lot of things here. – Latrell Sprewell

154399. I think that was one thing I definitely brought to the table, my aggressiveness and my style of play, and I think that’s one of the reasons why the fans here really appreciated the way that I went out and played, just because I think they kind of liked that. – Latrell Sprewell

154400. I think it’ll be an emotional day. It’ll be exciting for me, mostly it’ll be exciting for them. I’m not going to get to come here a lot, so, it’ll be a special day, hopefully. – Latrell Sprewell

154401. I think it was one of the better meetings that I’ve had with those guys, because I was honestly able to say everything I wanted to say, and I pretty much aired out the dirty laundry. So from that point on, I thought all of that was behind us. – Latrell Sprewell

154402. I love New York. A part of me will always be here. What can I say. – Latrell Sprewell

154403. I know just one thing is those guys, KG and everyone, they’re hungry. They want it bad. Sam’s the only one that’s had that, has the ring. Other than him, everybody else over there, we want it bad. – Latrell Sprewell

154404. I definitely think that myself and Sam will help the Timberwolves. – Latrell Sprewell

154405. You guys know the way I play. And what’s so ironic is, KG is the same way. I’m looking at him in practice and going, ‘Wow, I’m always that guy,’ you know? – Latrell Sprewell

154406. And for the first time in a long time, I’m playing along somebody that has that same energy and fire and plays pretty much the same way I do. So, that was just nice to say. – Latrell Sprewell

154407. I just meant as far as coming to the games on time; it was just like I was under the microscope, every little thing, it was like they were looking for me to come in here with my shoes untied. – Latrell Sprewell

154408. It… is the best opportunity we’ve had in the last 25 years to bring about a settlement in Northern Ireland, and I think we should leave no stone unturned to achieve that. – Dick Spring

154409. There is a great deal of work that can be done between the SDLP representing the Nationalist population and the Unionist Parties, and I believe we should set down to do that. – Dick Spring

154410. The British Government and the Irish Government have accepted very clearly the Mitchell Report. – Dick Spring

154411. If I felt we had alienated the Unionists, it would worry me because we’ve spent a great deal of time trying to open up discussion and dialogue with the Unionist Parties. – Dick Spring

154412. I believe we’ve spent many years trying to bring about talks which have all the Parties in Northern Ireland involved so that there’d be inclusive talks. – Dick Spring

154413. I’m not getting frustrated… we all knew from the start that this would be a long process. – Dick Spring

154416. To go from politics to news, at least the subject matter is the same, even if the view is different. – Jerry Springer

154417. My guess is more reporters probably vote Democrat than Republican – just because I think reporters are smart. – Jerry Springer

154418. It’s just a show. It’s not the end of Western Civilization. It’s chewing gum. – Jerry Springer

154419. All of us, whether or not we’re celebrities, every one ought to spend part of their life making someone else’s life better. – Jerry Springer

154431. Hell, have I been a hell-raiser! – Dusty Springfield

154432. A lot of people say I’m bent, and I’ve heard it so many times that I’ve almost learned to accept it. – Dusty Springfield

154434. It’s marvellous to be popular, but foolish to think it will last. – Dusty Springfield

154459. I was very fortunate to be at the vanguard of music video. – Rick Springfield

154460. No, I always felt that amongst my core fans- because there was a level of popularity that I had in the mid ’80s that was sort of a bump on the scale- they fundamentally understood the values that are at work in my work. – Bruce Springsteen

154461. I tend to be a subscriber to the idea that you have everything you need by the time you’re 12 years old to do interesting writing for most of the rest of your life – certainly by the time you’re 18. – Bruce Springsteen

154462. I think that is what film and art and music do; they can work as a map of sorts for your feelings. – Bruce Springsteen

154463. I was always concerned with writing to my age at a particular moment. That was the way I would keep faith with the audience that supported me as I went along. – Bruce Springsteen

154464. I’m a synthesist. I’m always making music. And I make a lot of different kinds of music all the time. Some of it gets finished and some of it doesn’t. – Bruce Springsteen

154466. In America everything’s about who’s number one today. – Bruce Springsteen

154467. In the early years, I found a voice that was my voice and also partly my father’s voice. But isn’t that what you always do? Why do kids at 5 years old go into the closet and put their daddy’s shoes on? Hey, my kids do it. – Bruce Springsteen

154468. In the past, some of the songs that were the most fun, and the most entertaining and rocking, fell by the wayside because I was concerned with what I was going to say and how I was going to say it. – Bruce Springsteen

154469. It’s a sad man my friend who’s livin’ in his own skin and can’t stand the company. – Bruce Springsteen

154470. It’s always felt natural, because I’m generally very comfortable with people. – Bruce Springsteen

154471. My only general rule was to steer away from things I played with the band over the past couple of tours. I was interested in re-shaping the Rising material for live shows, so people could hear the bare bones of that. – Bruce Springsteen

154472. You can go from doing something quite silly to something dead serious in the blink of an eye, and if you’re making those connections with your audience then they’re going to go right along with it. – Bruce Springsteen

154473. Plus, you know, when I was young, there was a lot of respect for clowning in rock music – look at Little Richard. It was a part of the whole thing, and I always also believed that it released the audience. – Bruce Springsteen

154474. Talk about a dream, try to make it real. – Bruce Springsteen

154475. The audiences are there as a result of my history with the band but also as a result of my being able to reach people with a tune. – Bruce Springsteen

154476. The best music is essentially there to provide you something to face the world with. – Bruce Springsteen

154477. My image had always been very heterosexual, very straight. So it was a nice experience for me, a chance to clarify my own feelings about gay and lesbian civil rights. – Bruce Springsteen

154478. Your spoken voice is a part of it – not a big part of it, but it’s something. It puts people at ease, and once again kind of reaches out and makes a bridge for what’s otherwise difficult music. – Bruce Springsteen

154479. Yeah, I had gay friends. The first thing I realized was that everybody’s different, and it becomes obvious that all of the gay stereotypes are ridiculous. – Bruce Springsteen

154480. The only thing I can say about having this type of success is that you can get yourself in trouble because basically the world is set open for you. People will say yes to anything you ask, so it’s basically down to you and what you want or need. – Bruce Springsteen

154481. Your success story is a bigger story than whatever you’re trying to say on stage. Success makes life easier. It doesn’t make living easier. – Bruce Springsteen

154482. Yeah, my son likes a lot of guitar bands. He gave me something the other day which was really good. He’ll burn a CD for me full of things that he has, so he’s a pretty good call if I want to check some of that stuff out… The other two aren’t quite into that yet. – Bruce Springsteen

154483. The best music, you can seek some shelter in it momentarily, but it’s essentially there to provide you something to face the world with. – Bruce Springsteen

154484. When it comes to luck, you make your own. – Bruce Springsteen

154485. When I first started in rock, I had a big guy’s audience for my early records. I had a very straight image, particularly through the mid ’80s. – Bruce Springsteen

154486. This music is forever for me. It’s the stage thing, that rush moment that you live for. It never lasts, but that’s what you live for. – Bruce Springsteen

154487. The release date is just one day, but the record is forever. – Bruce Springsteen

154488. But I think that your entire life is a process of sorting out some of those early messages that you got. – Bruce Springsteen

154489. But then I go through long periods where I don’t listen to things, usually when I’m working. In between the records and in between the writing I suck up books and music and movies and anything I can find. – Bruce Springsteen

154490. From the beginning, I imagined I would have a long work life. – Bruce Springsteen

154491. Certainly tolerance and acceptance were at the forefront of my music. – Bruce Springsteen

154492. I like narrative storytelling as being part of a tradition, a folk tradition. – Bruce Springsteen

154493. I have my ideas, I have my music and I also just enjoy showing off, so that’s a big part of it. Also, I like to get up onstage and behave insanely or express myself physically, and the band can get pretty silly. – Bruce Springsteen

154494. I hadn’t performed by myself in a while. It feels very natural to me, and I assume people come for the very same reasons as they do when I’m with the band: to be moved, for something to happen to them. – Bruce Springsteen

154495. I do a lot of curiosity buying; I buy it if I like the album cover, I buy it if I like the name of the band, anything that sparks my imagination. I still like to go to record stores, I like to just wander around and I’ll buy whatever catches my attention. – Bruce Springsteen

154496. I didn’t know if it would be a success-ful one, or what the stages would be, but I always saw myself as a lifetime musician and songwriter. – Bruce Springsteen

154497. I can sing very comfortably from my vantage point because a lot of the music was about a loss of innocence, there’s innocence contained in you but there’s also innocence in the process of being lost. – Bruce Springsteen

154498. I always wanted my music to influence the life you were living emotionally – with your family, your lover, your wife, and, at a certain point, with your children. – Bruce Springsteen

154499. Blind faith in your leaders, or in anything, will get you killed. – Bruce Springsteen

154500. Basically, I was pretty ostracized in my hometown. Me and a few other guys were the town freaks- and there were many occasions when we were dodging getting beaten up ourselves. – Bruce Springsteen

154501. I got to the point where I was sick of fashion again, like I was at the end of high school. – Stephen Sprouse

154502. I would just sketch everything that was being made for the collections. – Stephen Sprouse

154503. Then I moved down to the Bowery to this building where Debbie Harry lived. It was there that I started combining some clothes for her and continued doing the art and photography. – Stephen Sprouse

154504. The photograph, the clothes, the sets – this was about 1974, and I started hanging out with my friend Richard Sold, who was playing in a band with Patti Smith. – Stephen Sprouse

You may also like  180000 famous quotes part 24 - 23001 to 24000

154505. That’s how I taught myself how to draw – tracing the ads and petting new clothes on the models. – Stephen Sprouse

154506. Maybe if they all could he combined – art, rock and fashion. Those were always my favorite things. – Stephen Sprouse

154507. When I went to college, I wasn’t interested in fashion anymore – I was interested in art. – Stephen Sprouse

154508. I watched television a little, but I mostly just drew and read magazines. – Stephen Sprouse

154509. I lived in town until I was eight and then I moved nearer the farmland, so I had a mixture. – Stephen Sprouse

154510. I just really wanted to do art, except when I was taking those photographs of people I would make the clothes that I would photograph them in so I could control the whole thing. – Stephen Sprouse

154511. I grew up in Columbus, Indiana, a kind of industrial and farmland place. – Stephen Sprouse

154512. I don’t know if it’s a movement, but the only thing new that’s happening is that I think music and art and video and fashion are all kind of thrown into one big ball that’s on television, and people see that all the time – you see a fusion of all those things. – Stephen Sprouse

154513. But after the time there I’d had it with fashion again, so I left to go to architecture school in a summer course at Harvard, which didn’t last very long. – Stephen Sprouse

154514. I guess you just fall into things when to you’re supposed to. – Stephen Sprouse

154515. I finished high school there and then I went to Rhode Island School of Design. – Stephen Sprouse

154516. A vigorous temper is not altogether an evil. Men who are easy as an old shoe are generally of little worth. – Charles Spurgeon

154517. A sinner can no more repent and believe without the Holy Spirit’s aid than he can create a world. – Charles Spurgeon

154518. A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes. – Charles Spurgeon

154525. Humility is to make a right estimate of one’s self. – Charles Spurgeon

154526. I believe that nothing happens apart from divine determination and decree. We shall never be able to escape from the doctrine of divine predestination – the doctrine that God has foreordained certain people unto eternal life. – Charles Spurgeon

154527. I do not think I should care to go on worshipping a Madonna even if she did wink. One cannot make much out of a wink. We want something more than that from the object of our adoration. – Charles Spurgeon

154528. I would go to the deeps a hundred times to cheer a downcast spirit. It is good for me to have been afflicted, that I might know how to speak a word in season to one that is weary. – Charles Spurgeon

154529. If any of you should ask me for an epitome of the Christian religion, I should say that it is in one word – prayer. Live and die without prayer, and you will pray long enough when you get to hell. – Charles Spurgeon

154530. Anxiety does not empty tomorrow of its sorrows, but only empties today of its strength. – Charles Spurgeon

154539. Sincerity makes the very least person to be of more value than the most talented hypocrite. – Charles Spurgeon

154540. Wisdom is the right use of knowledge. To know is not to be wise. Many men know a great deal, and are all the greater fools for it. There is no fool so great a fool as a knowing fool. But to know how to use knowledge is to have wisdom. – Charles Spurgeon

154541. Of two evils, choose neither. – Charles Spurgeon

154542. We have come to a turning point in the road. If we turn to the right mayhap our children and our children’s children will go that way; but if we turn to the left, generations yet unborn will curse our names for having been unfaithful to God and to His Word. – Charles Spurgeon

154552. I was starting to become impotent through this diet and couldn’t perform. How many people who are taking the little blue pill, if they started to change what they are eating most of the time, could change the way their sex life is? – Morgan Spurlock

154555. I think, after about a week in, I started to get really down. I would feel better when I would eat. – Morgan Spurlock

154556. I think that, I’m sure there are gonna be some teachers who are very entrenched in the system, who are going to buy in to what they’re being told, as to what the kids are being fed. – Morgan Spurlock

154557. I had no idea that it was gonna take off the way it did. I thought we made a good movie. – Morgan Spurlock

154561. Obviously my last two years in the NFL were not much fun at all. – Steve Spurrier

154562. So you get two good hours on the field about every day, you get about an hour and a half in the meeting room and that’s pretty much all you need to thoroughly coach your team. – Steve Spurrier

154563. So, I didn’t say we are going to win a lot, but we are going to play like winners, and we’ve got a plan in place to teach our guys how to play like winners and play like a champion. – Steve Spurrier

154564. What I’ve been telling everyone that loves Carolina football is that we are going to put a team out there that, number one, is in good shape. We’re going to be fit, we are going to be able to play the whole game and we’re not going to poop out. – Steve Spurrier

154565. I really believe everything is here for us to be very successful. – Steve Spurrier

154566. So I don’t really believe that how many years you’ve had in the league determines how well your players play… Coaching is coaching. – Steve Spurrier

154567. Our stadium seats over 80,000, and we sell all of our tickets. – Steve Spurrier

154568. Our coaches want to be a part of South Carolina football when they win it for the first time. When they win the division, when they win the SEC, win a major bowl game, etc. The opportunities to do it all for the first time here make it extra special. – Steve Spurrier

154569. But as coaches, we need to get a little more fire and passion and be more demanding that our guys get the job done. I think players will respond to that, and we’ll see. – Steve Spurrier

154570. Number two, we’re going to play with a lot of effort. Our guys are going to be in such good shape that fatigue is not going to be a problem. We’re going to play with full effort from snap to whistle on every play the entire game. – Steve Spurrier

154571. I do have some young coaches, but I don’t really believe that is the biggest problem we have here. – Steve Spurrier

154572. Number three, we’re going to play very smart and we’re not going to beat ourselves. If the other team is better than us and they just out execute us and play better then we can live with that, but we’re going to play smart and give ourselves every opportunity to win the game. – Steve Spurrier

154573. Number four, we’re going to play like winners, play the game the way it’s meant to be played. Don’t get full of yourself if something good happens. Don’t get too depressed when something bad happens. – Steve Spurrier

154574. I think I’ve got an outstanding defensive assistant staff that’s really going to help us have consistent, strong defenses. And offensively, we have an excellent staff. We’ve got some younger guys on offense, but that’s what I coach and have my entire coaching career. – Steve Spurrier

154575. But at some point, we’ve got to have disciplined play and have got to coach better. I’m not putting it on the players. We’ve got to coach them to tackle and block better. It’s as simple as that. If we can do those things, we’ll have a chance. – Steve Spurrier

154576. All I can say is that I’m going to try to coach the way I’ve coached in the past. And if it ends up not being good enough, then so be it. – Steve Spurrier

154577. We’ve got a support system that gives our players a wonderful opportunity to graduate. If they go to class and give good effort, they can graduate from this school, and I believe that’s important when you go out recruiting. – Steve Spurrier

154578. You’re only as big as your last hit. – Chris Squire

154579. Pull the good out of it and not worry about the drawbacks. – Chris Squire

154587. This whole mission has surpassed all of our expectations. – Steven Squyres

154588. These rovers are living on borrowed time. We’re so past warranty on them. You try to push them hard every day because we’re living day to day. – Steven Squyres

154589. That’s really what science is just trying to figure stuff out, and I like figuring stuff out. – Steven Squyres

154590. It’s not going to fill in the potholes. It’s not going to put a roof over people’s heads. What it does is it helps to address really fundamental questions of who we are, where we came from, by which I mean we can learn how life came about. – Steven Squyres

154591. I want to make as many people as possible feel like they are part of this adventure. We are going to give everybody a sense of what exploring the surface of another world is really like. – Steven Squyres

154592. When we opened our eyes, we saw bedrock exposed in the walls of the crater. – Steven Squyres

154593. I can’t ever remember not wanting to be a scientist. – Steven Squyres

154594. Having been given that public trust, we have a responsibility to share with the public. – Steven Squyres

154596. It’s hard to lose when your standards are so low. – John A. Simone, Sr.

154818. I love being verbal in films. – Sylvester Stallone

154864. When money is controlled by a few it gives that few an undue power and control over labor and the resources of the country. Labor will have its best return when the laborer can control its disposal. – Leland Stanford

154871. Many writers upon the science of political economy have declared that it is the duty of a nation first to encourage the creation of wealth; and second, to direct and control its distribution. All such theories are delusive. – Leland Stanford

154888. In a condition of society and under an industrial organization which places labor completely at the mercy of capital, the accumulations of capital will necessarily be rapid, and an unequal distribution of wealth is at once to be observed. – Leland Stanford

154889. No man can be held throughout the day by what happens throughout the night. – Sally Stanford

154890. The death of the forest is the end of our life. – Dorothy Stang

154891. I don’t want to flee, nor do I want to abandon the battle of these farmers who live without any protection in the forest. They have the sacrosanct right to aspire to a better life on land where they can live and work with dignity while respecting the environment. – Dorothy Stang

154892. A young man, be his merit what it will, can never raise himself; but must, like the ivy round the oak, twine himself round some man of great power and interest. – Philip Stanhope

154893. Whoever incites anger has a strong insurance against indifference. – Philip Stanhope

154894. There is time enough for everything, in the course of the day, if you do but one thing at once; but there is not time enough in the year, if you will do two things at a time. – Philip Stanhope

154895. Politeness is as much concerned in answering letters within a reasonable time, as it is in returning a bow, immediately. – Philip Stanhope

154896. Our prejudices are our mistresses; reason is at best our wife, very often heard indeed, but seldom minded. – Philip Stanhope

154897. Most people enjoy the inferiority of their best friends. – Philip Stanhope

154898. Judgment is not upon all occasions required, but discretion always is. – Philip Stanhope

154899. It is always right to detect a fraud, and to perceive a folly; but it is very often wrong to expose either. A man of business should always have his eyes open, but must often seem to have them shut. – Philip Stanhope

154900. Gratitude is a burden upon our imperfect nature, and we are but too willing to ease ourselves of it, or at least to lighten it as much as we can. – Philip Stanhope

154901. In the mass of mankind, I fear, there is too great a majority of fools and knaves; who, singly from their number, must to a certain degree be respected, though they are by no means respectable. – Philip Stanhope

154902. Words, which are the dress of thoughts, deserve surely more care than clothes, which are only the dress of the person. – Philip Stanhope

154903. Women are only children of a larger growth. A man of sense only trifles with them, plays with them, humours and flatters them, as he does with a sprightly and forward child; but he neither consults them about, nor trusts them with, serious matters. – Philip Stanhope

154910. Talent is nothing but a prolonged period of attention and a shortened period of mental assimilation. – Konstantin Stanislavisky

154911. Our demands are simple, normal, and therefore they are difficult to satisfy. All we ask is that an actor on the stage live in accordance with natural laws. – Konstantin Stanislavisky

154925. I’m convinced that the man who has learned to meditate upon the Lord will be able to run on his feet and walk in his spirit. Although he may be hurried by his vocation, that’s not the issue. The issue is how fast his spirit is going. To slow it down takes a period of time. – Charles Stanley

154927. God’s voice is still and quiet and easily buried under an avalanche of clamour. – Charles Stanley
