156665. We have had more sales for this year’s grand prix than any other, and we have been helped in that by the fact that Jenson had 10 podiums last season and looks like a winner. It is good for British motor racing if he is there and doing well. – Jackie Stewart

156703. I’ve always liked Atlanta. And not just for the strip clubs, but the shopping and the food. – Jon Stewart

156705. Ahh, Earth Day, the only day of the year where being able to hacky-sack will get you laid. – Jon Stewart

156711. I can be in 20 movies. But I’ll never be an actor. – Jon Stewart

156713. If you watch the news and don’t like it, then this is your counter program to the news. – Jon Stewart

156721. There’s no way to eloquently put this. I just can’t go to the mall. It bothers me that I can’t be outside very often. And also to not ever be just ‘some girl’ again. Just being some chick at some place, that’s gone. – Kristen Stewart

156722. Sure, ‘Twilight’ is really huge right now and everybody’s freaking out over it, but it will go away soon and I will be back to doing what I’m used to doing: weird little movies that nobody sees. – Kristen Stewart

156725. I’m asked all the time in interviews about who I am, and I know a few people my age who have a strong sense of self, but I couldn’t say I know myself and sum it up and give it to you in a little package. I don’t know myself at all yet. – Kristen Stewart

156726. I wouldn’t tell you anything about anybody I cared about because it becomes entertainment for other people, and it sort of just cheapens everything in your life. I would never tell you if I was dating anybody. – Kristen Stewart

156727. I would never cheapen my relationships by talking about them. – Kristen Stewart

156728. I want to go to college. I’m going to take four years off. I don’t want to miss that. I want to be a writer. I think that’d be awesome. – Kristen Stewart

156730. I just want the fans of the book to be happy. I don’t necessarily care about anyone else. – Kristen Stewart

156731. I had to act in a school play when I was about ten years old. I really didn’t want to do it. But everyone had to do it so I didn’t have a choice. A talent agent came and watched it and later gave me some work. It’s funny because I’d always known that I wanted a movie career. I just didn’t think that I would be in the movies. – Kristen Stewart

156732. I go outside, and I’m wearing a funky T-shirt and my hair is dirty, and people say, ‘What’s wrong with her? She needs to invest in a hairbrush.’ – Kristen Stewart

156734. I don’t think I would ever have been able to be an actress had I not started at nine years old. I would have been the last person to stand up and say, ‘I’d like to star in the play.’ – Kristen Stewart

156735. Girls are scary. Large groups of girls scare the crap out of me. – Kristen Stewart

156737. I’m really proud of Twilight. I think it’s a good movie. It was hard to do, and I think it turned out pretty good. But I don’t take much credit for it. So when you show up at these places, and there’s literally like a thousand girls and they’re all screaming your name, you’re like, why? You don’t feel like you deserve it. – Kristen Stewart

156738. I think romance is anything honest. As long as it’s honest, it’s so disarming. – Kristen Stewart

156739. Masses of girls identified with Bella in a really profound way, for want of a better word. The connection that I’ve seen people have – I’ve seen it physically. It’s the characters they’re flipping for. – Kristen Stewart

156740. I’m not a sponge exactly, but I find that something I look at is a great opportunity for ideas. – Martha Stewart

156745. I invented ‘It’s a good thing’ before you were even born. – Martha Stewart

156746. I think it’s very important that whatever you’re trying to make or sell, or teach has to be basically good. A bad product and you know what? You won’t be here in ten years. – Martha Stewart

156757. It is harder to kill a whisper than even a shouted calumny. – Mary Stewart

156758. The truth of the matter is, all of those guys on Star Trek: The Next Generation actually want to be me. These impersonations they do are just some way of trying to feel what it must be like to be me. And I understand that! Because it feels really good to be Patrick Stewart! – Patrick Stewart

156759. I certainly wanted to maintain some sense of mystery about Picard and that’s why we never allowed certain situations to fully evolve, like the relationship between Picard and Beverly Crusher. – Patrick Stewart

156760. You get all of your neuroses worked out on stage. I haven’t actually played very many nice characters, certainly not on stage. It’s not a quality that attracts me. – Patrick Stewart

156761. Wouldn’t it be grand if we thought that theater could have that impact on the political life of a country? – Patrick Stewart

156762. William Shatner has one style. We have completely contrasting personalities. We’re very good friends. I adore him, but we’re very different people, so they were smart enough to write characters that reflected that. – Patrick Stewart

156773. I had come to the point when I realized it was unlikely that my film career was going to move beyond a certain level of role. And I was – because I had graphic instances of it – handicapped by the success of Star Trek. A director would say, ‘I don’t want Jean-Luc Picard in my movie’ – and this was compounded by X-Men as well. – Patrick Stewart

156774. Tom Hanks knows the name of all the episodes. – Patrick Stewart

156775. I don’t do impersonations. I can do a wounded elephant! I can do a really good cow! And because of the amount of time I spent in North Yorkshire, I do a variety of sheep. All of which I will be happy to roll out for you! – Patrick Stewart

156776. Last Wednesday, I stupidly dropped my iPhone in the bath, and my life has sort of spiraled almost out of control. – Patrick Stewart

156783. I’ve met actors where you think, if only you could just clean up your act and get it together, people would want to work with you. Some people are so difficult, it’s just not worth working with them. – Patrick Stewart

It’s been hard on me because flying the Enterprise for seven years in Star Trek and sitting in Cerebro in X-men has led people to believe that I know what I’m talking about. But I’m still trying to work out how to operate the air conditioning unit on my car. – Patrick Stewart

156797. For seven years I did very little theatre, and I have to make up some time. – Patrick Stewart

156798. Encouraging people to believe in it was the most important thing of all. It’s one of the reasons I was always uncomfortable whenever film crews came on the set to shoot things. I didn’t want our make-believe to be exposed. – Patrick Stewart

156799. During my time we had two chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, at different times of course, on the bridge, both of whom asked my permission to sit on the captain’s chair. – Patrick Stewart

156800. But as I grew up as a child, falling in love with the theater and Shakespeare, my heroes were Sir Laurence Olivier and Sir John Gielgud. – Patrick Stewart

156801. As time went on, I did campaign to lighten the character a little bit, to introduce some romance into the episodes, outside activities, horse riding and fencing and mountaineering. – Patrick Stewart

156802. As the captain, I was going to be having the dominant role in most of the episodes, and that was appealing. I wasn’t interested in coming to Hollywood to sit around. – Patrick Stewart

156803. During the course of the seven years I played scenes with an oil slick, I played a scene with a grain of rice. Sometimes with indescribable creatures. I remember having a conversation with something which was simply a smell, that’s all. It was part of our job. – Patrick Stewart

156804. We live in such a sheltered environment in the United States. I’ve been fortunate enough to have traveled all over the world, and I’ve seen things you only read about and see on the news. – Payne Stewart

156805. Not that money is a driving force. It’s an honor to play for your country. – Payne Stewart

156806. People who have never had an addiction don’t understand how hard it can be. – Payne Stewart

156807. Raymond Floyd. The man knows how to control situations. He was experienced. He didn’t let me get overly excited; he kept me in check. It allowed me to free myself up, and I played really well with him. – Payne Stewart

156808. That’s why I’m very proud of being American. I’m proud to pay taxes. I pay a lot of taxes, but it sure beats the alternative. – Payne Stewart

156809. The cast clubs were a big part of it, too. I found I wasn’t getting that instant feedback I was used to with a forged blade. The sweet spot is a shade bigger, and when I didn’t hit the ball dead center, I didn’t know it, because it still felt great. – Payne Stewart

156810. The two-piece ball I switched to spun too much. One shot would go the distance I thought it should, then the next one would fall short, and then the next one would go long. – Payne Stewart

156811. Then I would have an occasional cigarette and then I started back dipping. I started dipping last year. My family has asked me again to stop, and I’m trying my best to do that. – Payne Stewart

156812. These guys who keep on playing but aren’t winning, you’ve got to sit them down and let them figure it out and perform a little gut-check on themselves. – Payne Stewart

156813. This thing is for the game of golf, yeah, but trust me, the Europeans don’t have that mentality. – Payne Stewart

156814. Yes, I’m a patriotic person. For these people who disgrace the American way and burn our flag and do all of these things… I say, don’t live here and disgrace my country. Go live in the Middle East and see how you like it. – Payne Stewart

156815. We grew up with so much love in our family. – Payne Stewart

156816. Invariably something happens at a U.S. Open where the golf course gets out of control one day, they have one pin that’s out of control. It always seems to happen. But they’ve gotten better about the height of the rough. – Payne Stewart

156817. With the media, I could be quick and ugly and critical. I tend to wear my emotions on my sleeve. – Payne Stewart

156818. I don’t think it’s healthy to take yourself too seriously. – Payne Stewart

156819. Tiger is the greatest thing that’s happened to the tour in a long time. He has brought incredible attention to golf at a time of year when football and the World Series always take precedence. Everything I’ve heard about him seems to be true. – Payne Stewart

156820. I didn’t hesitate to kiss my father in public. And that’s how I tried to raise my children. We’re physical. – Payne Stewart

156821. I very rarely saw Tom Kite around. I’ve talked to Tom about it. I don’t think Michael Jordan needed to be on the captain’s cart with Kite; he needed to be walking in the gallery, supporting them from outside the ropes. – Payne Stewart

156822. If you can’t laugh at yourself, then how can you laugh at anybody else? I think people see the human side of you when you do that. – Payne Stewart

156823. But in the end it’s still a game of golf, and if at the end of the day you can’t shake hands with your opponents and still be friends, then you’ve missed the point. – Payne Stewart

156824. For a while, I think in 1994, it got to where I didn’t want to practice. – Payne Stewart

156825. For example, I wouldn’t hesitate to sit somebody down if he wasn’t performing, even if he was the No. 1 player in the world. I’ve been sat down before. – Payne Stewart

156826. For sure I would be a very emotional captain. A very hands-on captain. – Payne Stewart

156827. I don’t read magazines much, and I have an awful time with books. – Payne Stewart

156828. I sometimes got distracted easily and allowed my mind to wander when I needed to be focused. It’s quite subtle, really, and just being aware of it helps. – Payne Stewart

156829. But I’ll tell you something: We had a big family discussion about it recently, my two sisters and I, and I pointed out that we all have the same genes as our mother and we’re all susceptible to becoming alcoholics. – Payne Stewart

156830. I went over before the British Open and played Valderrama thinking that I might make the team, might be a captain’s pick. I made the effort to go over there. – Payne Stewart

156831. I’m 42 now, what I would consider prime time. – Payne Stewart

156832. I’ve just become more conscious about how much I do drink and how often I want to have a drink and things like that. I think being conscious of it will help me to control the urges. – Payne Stewart

156833. If somebody asks for my opinion, I tell them my opinion, whether it’s what they want to hear or not. – Payne Stewart

156834. For one thing, when you’re playing as well as I was at the time, you think you can play with anything. That isn’t true, of course, but I didn’t know it then. – Payne Stewart

156835. To force a lawyer on a defendant can only lead him to believe that the law contrives against him. – Potter Stewart

156836. A person’s mere propinquity to others independently suspected of criminal activity does not give rise to probable cause to search that person. – Potter Stewart

156837. It must always be remembered that what the Constitution forbids is not all searches and seizures, but unreasonable searches and seizures. – Potter Stewart

156838. The dichotomy between personal liberties and property rights is a false one. Property does not have rights. People have rights. – Potter Stewart

156839. The 4th Amendment and the personal rights it secures have a long history. At the very core stands the right of a man to retreat into his own home and there be free from unreasonable governmental intrusion. – Potter Stewart

156840. Swift justice demands more than just swiftness. – Potter Stewart

156841. In fact, a fundamental interdependence exists between the personal right to liberty and the personal right to property. – Potter Stewart

156842. I shall not today attempt further to define the kinds of material but I know it when I see it. – Potter Stewart

156843. Fairness is what justice really is. – Potter Stewart

156844. Ethics is knowing the difference between what you have a right to do and what is right to do. – Potter Stewart

156845. Abortion is inherently different from other medical procedures because no other procedure involves the purposeful termination of a potential life. – Potter Stewart

156846. Censorship reflects a society’s lack of confidence in itself. – Potter Stewart

156847. I want to go out at the top, but the secret is knowing when you’re at the top, it’s so difficult in this business, your career fluctuates all the time, up and down, like a pair of trousers. – Rod Stewart

156848. I’ve never been more in love with anyone nearly half my age than I am today. I’d get married in a minute if I weren’t still married to somebody else. – Rod Stewart

156849. What I do now is all my dad’s fault, because he bought me a guitar as a boy, for no apparent reason. – Rod Stewart

156850. The first cut is the deepest. – Rod Stewart

156851. Only a fool permits the letter of the law to override the spirit in the heart. Do not let a piece of paper stand in the way of true love and headlines. – Rod Stewart

156852. Instead of getting married again, I’m going to find a woman I don’t like and just give her a house. – Rod Stewart

156853. I wish I knew what I know now before. – Rod Stewart

156854. A show is like having a climax. It’s like having an incredible, natural climax. And then suddenly it’s all finished, and you don’t know what to do next. – Rod Stewart

156855. I started singing in the bathroom. Nothing was coming out. It was ghastly. – Rod Stewart

156856. How can my son not be straight after all I’ve said and done for him? – Rod Stewart

156857. Half the battle is selling music, not singing it. It’s the image, not what you sing. – Rod Stewart

156858. I’m a rock star because I couldn’t be a soccer star. – Rod Stewart

156859. Internal marketing is probably much more important than external marketing. That’s even more true today than it’s ever been. – Tom Stewart

156860. It’s easy for women to say they don’t understand and ask a man for help. As the saying goes, boys play with toys, and girls play with boys. – Tom Stewart

156861. Get in the race car do what I do then go home. We don’t have freedom to do anything anymore. – Tony Stewart

156862. When I go home, its an easy way to be grounded. You learn to realize what truly matters. – Tony Stewart

156863. The essence of a government health care system – for people who have never lived under it and don’t know – is waiting, waiting, waiting. You wait for everything. You wait for years for operations that are routine in America. – Mark Steyn

156864. The minute health care becomes a huge, unwieldy, expensive government bureaucracy it’s a permanent feature of life and there’s nothing anyone can do about it. – Mark Steyn

156865. We immigrants can sometimes sound a little hysterical about this because we come from places that have tried this and we know where it leads. Anybody who’s lived in countries with socialized health care knows that it becomes the dominant political issue. – Mark Steyn

156866. Government health care changes the relationship between the citizen and the state, and, in fact, I think it’s an assault on citizenship. – Mark Steyn

156867. First, there is the bare beauty of the logs themselves with their long lines and firm curves. Then there is the open charm felt of the structural features which are not hidden under plaster and ornament, but are clearly revealed, a charm felt in Japanese architecture. – Gustav Stickley

156868. The quiet rhythmic monotone of the wall of logs fills one with the rustic peace of a secluded nook in the woods. – Gustav Stickley

156869. There are elements of intrinsic beauty in the simplification of a house built on the log cabin idea. – Gustav Stickley

156870. The goal of art was the vital expression of self. – Alfred Stieglitz

156871. Wherever there is light, one can photograph. – Alfred Stieglitz

156872. I am not a painter, nor an artist. Therefore I can see straight, and that may be my undoing. – Alfred Stieglitz

156873. The arts equally have distinct departments, and unless photography has its own possibilities of expression, separate from those of the other arts, it is merely a process, not an art. – Alfred Stieglitz

156874. In photography there is a reality so subtle that it becomes more real than reality. – Alfred Stieglitz

156875. We lament the speed of our society and the lack of depth and the nature of disposable information. – David Ogden Stiers

156876. It’s really important to stay engaged and involved in the character. – David Ogden Stiers

156877. My father, who died a few years ago, was a good, simple, very honest man. His faith and affection for his family was just unassailable, without question. – David Ogden Stiers

156878. Kids now are so used to surround sound and the power in theater speakers, that the concert hall is a disappointment to them. – David Ogden Stiers

156880. There are a couple of roles I haven’t played that I want to. I would love to play Shiloh. – David Ogden Stiers

156881. Very often, I don’t make it through moments of recording because it is genuinely funny and absolutely ridiculous that a 60-year-old grown man is making these noises. – David Ogden Stiers

156882. What we have to get clear to kids is that when you offer your stillness and open yourself to the experience of music, it pays you back more than you give. – David Ogden Stiers

156883. When something really extreme happens, you have to find a way to embrace that and include it in how you think about the character. Sometimes it’s not easy. – David Ogden Stiers

156884. Writing is hard work. Generating stories that catch people’s attention and holding it are very difficult. – David Ogden Stiers

156885. You hear the same work by different orchestras, different conductors, violinists, pianists, singers, and slowly, the work reveals itself and begins to live deeper in you. – David Ogden Stiers

156886. It’s rare to be treated like a friend you haven’t met in a Hollywood meeting. – David Ogden Stiers

156887. Very often when I go in to meet for movies or pilots, I’m put on videotape. I hate the notion that that tape is going to sit on a shelf and never get better. – David Ogden Stiers

156888. Family means no one gets left behind or forgotten. – David Ogden Stiers

156889. People are nice enough, but you can hear the giant tick of the second hand. People are so harried. – David Ogden Stiers

156890. In television you go in with this operating system that it is a crapshoot. – David Ogden Stiers

156891. A lot affects the outcome. It boils down to scheduling and the commitment of the network. – David Ogden Stiers

156892. Every time I hear, Cut. Print, something cold and electrical goes off in my head, because I’m never going to change that film. – David Ogden Stiers

156893. High school music teachers… nobody makes a living off it. – David Ogden Stiers

156894. I am certainly not a mainstream religious man. – David Ogden Stiers

156898. If it’s right and true, it’s listened to and accommodated. – David Ogden Stiers

156899. I’d forgotten I’d done the anime called Spirited Away, the English version of a Japanese film. – David Ogden Stiers

156900. I’ve played Lear three times, I would love to do it again. – David Ogden Stiers

156901. I had a meeting in LA in which they took a really overstuffed hour and a half. It was as close to old Hollywood as I remembered it in the last 20 years. – David Ogden Stiers

156902. Because I don’t take money, I’ll go anywhere and do a benefit concert with almost any orchestra. – David Ogden Stiers

156903. The delicate and intricate pattern of competition and cooperation in the economic behavior of the hundreds of thousands of citizens of Stockholm offers a challenge to the economist that is perhaps as complex as the challenges of the physicist and the chemist. – George Stigler

156904. My interests were aroused, and my faith in the cliches of the subject destroyed, as so often with other subjects, by the discussions with my friend, Aaron Director. – George Stigler

156905. My main graduate training was received at the University of Chicago from which I received the Ph.D. in 1938. – George Stigler

156906. My teaching began in 1936 at Iowa State College where T. W. Schultz was the department chairman. – George Stigler

156907. The Chicago Economics Department was in intellectual ferment, although the central issues of the 1930’s were very different from those in later times. I had never before encountered minds of that quality at close quarters and they influenced me strongly. – George Stigler

156908. Two years later, I went to the University of Minnesota from which I was on leave for several years during the war as a member of Statistical Research Group at Columbia University. – George Stigler

156909. It was in the 1960s that I began the detailed study of public regulation. – George Stigler

156910. I met my wife, Margaret L. Mack, at the University of Chicago. We were married in 1936. She died in 1970. – George Stigler

156911. That subject has lost its one time appeal to economists as our science has become more abstract, but my interest has even grown more intense as the questions raised by the sociology of science became more prominent. – George Stigler

156912. I started working and publishing in price theory by 1938. – George Stigler

156913. I attended schools in Seattle through the University of Washington, from which I was graduated in 1931. I spent the next year at Northwestern University. – George Stigler

156914. Even before I came to Chicago, I had gotten interested in the existence of dispersion of prices under conditions which economic theory said would yield a single price. – George Stigler

156915. And yet I would not freely exchange my science for those of my fellow laureates. They are forever confined in their professional discussions to the small numbers of their fellow scientists. – George Stigler

156916. After the war, I returned to Minnesota, from which I soon moved to Brown University, and a year later, to Columbia University where I remained from 1947 until 1958. – George Stigler

156917. A Swedish physicist can not discuss his work with fifty people unless he goes abroad. A Swedish economist can get opinions and instructions in his native language from thousands upon thousands of his fellow citizens. – George Stigler

156920. Economists often like startling theorems, results which seem to run counter to conventional wisdom. – Joseph E. Stiglitz

156921. I, like many members of my generation, was concerned with segregation and the repeated violation of civil rights. – Joseph E. Stiglitz

156922. If stability and efficiency required that there existed markets that extended infinitely far into the future – and these markets clearly did not exist – what assurance do we have of the stability and efficiency of the capitalist system? – Joseph E. Stiglitz

156923. In debate, one randomly was assigned to one side or the other. This had at least one virtue – it made one see that there was more than one side to these complex issues. – Joseph E. Stiglitz

156924. Much of my work in this period was concerned with exploring the logic of economic models, but also with attempting to reconcile the models with every day observation. – Joseph E. Stiglitz

156925. My research in this period centered around growth, technical change, and income distribution, both how growth affected the distribution of income and how the distribution of income affected growth. – Joseph E. Stiglitz

156926. My teachers helped guide and motivate me; but the responsibility of learning was left with me, an approach to learning which was later reinforced by my experiences at Amherst. – Joseph E. Stiglitz

156927. The extra curricular activity in which I was most engaged – debating – helped shape my interests in public policy. – Joseph E. Stiglitz

156928. There must have been something in the air of Gary that led one into economics: the first Nobel Prize winner, Paul Samuelson, was also from Gary, as were several other distinguished economists. – Joseph E. Stiglitz

156929. I went to public schools, and while Gary was, like most American cities, racially segregated, it was at least socially integrated – a cross section of children from families of all walks of life. – Joseph E. Stiglitz

156930. The notion that every well educated person would have a mastery of at least the basic elements of the humanities, sciences, and social sciences is a far cry from the specialized education that most students today receive, particularly in the research universities. – Joseph E. Stiglitz

156931. I went to Amherst because my brother had gone there before me, and he went there because his guidance counselor thought that we would do better there than at a large university like Harvard. – Joseph E. Stiglitz

156932. I think in part the reason is that seeing an economy that is, in many ways, quite different from the one grows up in, helps crystallize issues: in one’s own environment, one takes too much for granted, without asking why things are the way they are. – Joseph E. Stiglitz

156933. I recognized that information was, in many respects, like a public good, and it was this insight that made it clear to me that it was unlikely that the private market would provide efficient resource allocations whenever information was endogenous. – Joseph E. Stiglitz

156934. Amherst is a liberal arts college, committed to providing students with a broad education. – Joseph E. Stiglitz

156935. I grew up in a family in which political issues were often discussed, and debated intensely. – Joseph E. Stiglitz

156936. I knew that discrimination existed, even though there were many individuals who were not prejudiced. – Joseph E. Stiglitz

156937. Certainly, the poverty, the discrimination, the episodic unemployment could not but strike an inquiring youngster: why did these exist, and what could we do about them. – Joseph E. Stiglitz

156938. But while I loved all of these courses, there was an irresistible attraction of economics. – Joseph E. Stiglitz

156939. But individuals and firms spend an enormous amount of resources acquiring information, which affects their beliefs; and actions of others too affect their beliefs. – Joseph E. Stiglitz

156940. As I noted in my Nobel lecture, an early insight in my work on the economics of information concerned the problem of appropriability – the difficulty that those who pay for information have in getting returns. – Joseph E. Stiglitz

156941. Amherst was pivotal in my broad intellectual development; MIT in my development as a professional economist. – Joseph E. Stiglitz

156942. International lending banks need to focus on areas where private investment doesn’t go, such as infrastructure projects, education and poverty relief. – Joseph Stiglitz

156943. Macroeconomic policy can never be devoid of politics: it involves fundamental trade-offs and affects different groups differently. – Joseph Stiglitz

156944. Let the grand errand into America never be forgotten. – Ezra Stiles

156945. Let a bill, or law, be read, in the one branch or the other, every one instantly thinks how it will affect his constituents. – Ezra Stiles

156950. The right of conscience and private judgment is unalienable, and it is truly the interest of all mankind to unite themselves into one body for the liberty, free exercise, and unmolested enjoyment of this right. – Ezra Stiles

156951. The Lord shall have made his American Israel high above all nations which he hath made. – Ezra Stiles

156952. The greater part of the governments on earth may be termed monarchical aristocracies, or hereditary dominions independent of the people. – Ezra Stiles

156953. The constitutions of Maryland and New York are founded in higher wisdom. – Ezra Stiles

156954. Our trade opens to all the world. – Ezra Stiles

156955. But after the spirit of conquest had changed the first governments, all the succeeding ones have, in general, proved one continued series of injustice, which has reigned in all countries for almost four thousand years. – Ezra Stiles

156956. It should seem, then, that the nature of society dictates another, a higher branch, whose superiority arises from its being the interested and natural conservator of the universal interest. – Ezra Stiles

156957. A monarchy conducted with infinite wisdom and infinite benevolence is the most perfect of all possible governments. – Ezra Stiles

156958. All the forms of civil polity have been tried by mankind, except one, and that seems to have been reserved in Providence to be realized in America. – Ezra Stiles

156959. The British merchants represented that they received some profit indeed from Virginia and South Carolina, as well as the West Indies; but as for the rest of this continent, they were constant losers in trade. – Ezra Stiles

156960. But a multitude of people, even the two hundred million of the Chinese empire, cannot subsist without civil government. – Ezra Stiles

156961. But Connecticut and Rhode Island have originally realized the most perfect polity as to a legislature. – Ezra Stiles

156962. In justice to human society it may perhaps be said of almost all the polities and civil institutions in the world, however imperfect, that they have been founded in and carried on with very considerable wisdom. – Ezra Stiles

156963. Indians are numerous in the tropical regions; not so elsewhere. – Ezra Stiles

156964. It gives me pleasure to find that public liberty is effectually secured in each and all the policies of the United States, though somewhat differently modeled. – Ezra Stiles

156965. A few scattered accounts, collected and combined together, may lead us to two certain conclusions: 1. That all the American Indians are one kind of people; 2. That they are the same as the people in the northeast of Asia. – Ezra Stiles

156966. Besides a happy policy as to civil government, it is necessary to institute a system of law and jurisprudence founded in justice, equity, and public right. – Ezra Stiles

156967. I’m very excited to be chosen by Portland. It’s definitely a dream come true to be playing in the WNBA. – Jackie Stiles

156968. I always feel like a goofy little kid. – Julia Stiles

156969. I’m going to Columbia University but I’m trying to keep that low-profile because I don’t want weird people following me there. I want the experience of normal college life. – Julia Stiles

156970. I wear everything from hip-hop baggy pants to beautiful Armani dresses. I also like to mix vintage clothing with designer pieces. – Julia Stiles

156971. I like analyzing human behavior. It’s complex. That’s what keeps me going. – Julia Stiles

156972. It’s actually really great to be a student and an actor, because I get to do this job that I love, then just when I think my head might explode, I get to go to school where they don’t really care about what magazine cover I’m on. – Julia Stiles

156973. I think that ultimately I just have to be myself. You know, I don’t do anything that outlandish anyway. – Julia Stiles

156974. If I were like your mother, I would be a woman. – Ryan Stiles

156975. You know, I’ve got a confession to make myself. I’m not really a priest, I’ve just got my shirt on backwards. – Ryan Stiles

156976. When it comes to making love, I may not be the best, but I’m damn gouda. – Ryan Stiles

156977. What do I do when we’re not taping? Sit in a dark room and refine my plans for someday ruling Earth from a blimp. And chess. – Ryan Stiles

156978. The sky, the sky beyond the door is blue. – Ryan Stiles

156979. The first rule to living in America is ‘Stop tap dancing, you fool!’. – Ryan Stiles

156982. Never interrupt me when I’m eating a banana. – Ryan Stiles

156983. I look like Walt Disney just threw up. – Ryan Stiles

156984. If I were but a man who would be tall, I would be me. – Ryan Stiles

156985. I can’t sprinkle sprinkles on. I lose control when I have sprinkles. I’m shaky. I still remember the great sprinkle accident of 1982. – Ryan Stiles

156986. I’d rather drive the yellow brick road, you wouldn’t happen to know of a rental car place around. – Ryan Stiles
