158202. It is not because I do not love my adopted land – it is the natural feeling of one far from home, who remembers those happy, carefree days when life flowed at full tide, without responsibility, flashing past one like the drama in a fascinating story of adventure and romance. – Erich von Stroheim

158203. As soon as I had seen Fay Wray and spoken with her for a few minutes, I knew I had found the right girl. – Erich von Stroheim

158204. And yet because of my attempt at sincerity I have been condemned, hooted at, reviled; filthy rumors have been circulated about me, not about my characterizations but about me personally, my private self. – Erich von Stroheim

158209. So far we have not convinced the Chinese authorities. My own brother was refused a visa on what was probably my last chance of seeing him when he was going around the world on a tour. Scott Nearing was similarly refused. – Anna Louise Strong

158210. I have very little hope that any permission can be gained for your organization. However, I shall place it in a special folder with similar applications and raise the question from time to time with such people here as may have authority. – Anna Louise Strong

158215. Our fifty principal cities contain 39.3 per cent of our entire German population, and 45.8 per cent of the Irish. Our ten larger cities only nine per cent of the entire population, but 23 per cent of the foreign. – Josiah Strong

158217. What if it should be God’s plan to people the world with better and finer material? – Josiah Strong

158218. The city is the nerve center of our civilization. It is also the storm center. – Josiah Strong

158220. There are no more new worlds. The unoccupied arable lands of the earth are limited, and will soon be taken. – Josiah Strong

158221. If I read not amiss, this powerful race will move down upon Mexico, down upon Central and South America, out upon the islands of the sea, over upon Africa and beyond. And can any one doubt that the results of this competition of races will be the “survival of the fittest?” – Josiah Strong

158222. This is due partly to the fact that Americans are much better fed than Europeans, and partly to the undeveloped resources of a new country, but more largely to our climate, which acts as a constant stimulus. – Josiah Strong

158223. We have seen… that, although England is by far the richest nation of Europe, we have already outstripped her in the race after wealth, and we have only begun the development of our vast resources. – Josiah Strong

158224. Our aristocracy, unlike that of Europe, is open to all comers. – Josiah Strong

158225. The time is coming when the pressure of population on the means of subsistence will be felt here as it is now felt in Europe and Asia. Then will the world enter upon a new stage of its history – the final competition of races, for which the Anglo-Saxon is being schooled. – Josiah Strong

158226. As a rule, our largest cities are the worst governed. – Josiah Strong

158227. Long before the thousand millions are here, the mighty centrifugal tendency, inherent in this stock and strengthened in the United States, will assert itself. – Josiah Strong

158228. It may be easily shown, and is of no small significance, that the two great ideas of which the Anglo-Saxon is the exponent are having a fuller development in the United States than in Great Britain. – Josiah Strong

158229. In Europe the various ranks of society are, like the strata of the earth, fixed and fossilized. There can be no great change without a terrible upheaval, a social earthquake. – Josiah Strong

158230. Heretofore there has always been in the history of the world a comparatively unoccupied land westward, into which the crowded countries of the East have poured their surplus populations. – Josiah Strong

158231. Here, also, has been evolved the form of government consistent with the largest possible civil liberty. – Josiah Strong

158232. Furthermore, it is significant that the marked characteristics of this race are being here emphasized most. – Josiah Strong

158233. Commercial distress in any great business center will the more surely create widespread disaster. – Josiah Strong

158234. Not only does the proportion of the poor increase with the growth of the city, but their condition becomes more wretched. – Josiah Strong

158235. It is not necessary to argue to those for whom I write that the two great needs of mankind, that all men may be lifted up into the light of the highest Christian civilization, are, first, a pure, spiritual Christianity, and second, civil liberty. – Josiah Strong

158236. Real people are places to me as much as persons: I want to see them, as I want to see the places I am fond of, in all weathers and at all times of the year. – Leonard Alfred George Strong

158237. People and places are the source of my work, both in prose and verse-and this remark is not the truism it seems, for I do not distinguish as sharply between a place and a person as most people seem to do. – Leonard Alfred George Strong

158238. I broke down while at Oxford, was rejected by a record number of medical tribunals during the War, and finally got permission to leave Oxford and do civilian work till the War ended. – Leonard Alfred George Strong

158239. Country people give me more than writers, and country places than towns. – Leonard Alfred George Strong

158240. Because I had children relatively late – in my 40s rather than in my 20s – it wasn’t anything I ever knew that I would do. It kind of happened to me: I met the right woman and we had children. It was a revelation because it suddenly makes me realize, ‘Oh, I get it. Now I know what to do with the rest of my life.’ – Mark Strong

158241. My mother moved abroad when I was 11, my dad wasn’t around from the time that I was a baby, so I was not the product of a family, but a product of observation – of watching what went on around me, of watching who I liked, what I didn’t like, what I thought was good behavior and what I thought was bad behavior and tailoring myself accordingly. – Mark Strong

158242. It’s great to have the chance to play a character before he goes to the dark side, or the yellow side if you will. Normally, you don’t get that opportunity. The narrative of a movie usually demands that you are that guy from the start. – Mark Strong

158243. You sign for a sequel for everything these days, just in case, options. In the past, you avoided them like the plague because it meant somewhere down the road you couldn’t take a job because you had to do a sequel. Now it’s a feature of pretty much any feature you do. – Mark Strong

158247. And I think in your 40s, you land a little bit, physically and mentally, you arrive at a place where you feel you’ve learned some stuff. Having children at that point meant I had something very useful to do for the next 20 years. – Mark Strong

158248. All these portrayals we see of knights fighting must be absolute rubbish because knights in armour could literally have only had two or three blows and then they’d have had to sit down to have a cup of tea. – Mark Strong

158249. If you think about Shakespeare, you remember Richard III and Macbeth before you remember Ferdinand, whose role is just to fall in love and be a bit of a wimp. I love the baddies. More important, though, is making the baddies somehow, weirdly, understood. – Mark Strong

158250. I’m very organized and tidy in my home life and I generally do something myself rather than farm it out to somebody else. I don’t have an assistant or anything because I think I can do it myself. – Mark Strong

158259. One of the things that I’ve always thought I would like to do is to develop an environmental index. Then people can measure their own environmental performance on an index as they do in other ways. – Maurice Strong

158260. We need what I have often called an ecological approach to the management of these resources and we do not have that now. We have the inertia of past habits, unsustainable habits. – Maurice Strong

158269. Licences to have babies incidentally is something that I got in trouble for some years ago for suggesting even in Canada that this might be necessary at some point, at least some restriction on the right to have a child. – Maurice Strong

158270. Also, it is interesting that developing countries, with China and India perhaps in the lead, where the future of the global environment will be decided are now on board with the case for sustainable development. – Maurice Strong

158271. Don’t accept that you can’t make a difference. Because if you can’t make a difference, you won’t make a difference, and if you put a multiplier on that we will continue on an unsustainable pathway. – Maurice Strong

158272. I am convinced the prophets of doom have to be taken seriously. – Maurice Strong

158273. I am on the board of corporations who contribute both to environmental problems and their solutions. And I am on the NGO side: the Earth Council and other organizations. – Maurice Strong

158278. In addition to this, they already have a fuel cell car on the road in Japan. It is subsidized from within the corporation because they are still at a high cost. – Maurice Strong

158279. Inertia is a powerful force in human and political affairs. – Maurice Strong

158281. To have an opportunity to make a movie like Cabin Fever, you have to get stuff thrown on you or you have to fall into a pit of water. It brings you that much closer to your mindset as a character. – Rider Strong

158282. I don’t really want to be doing high budget, where they’ve got cranes and everything. That just sounds boring, having to do the same thing over and over again. – Rider Strong

158284. I spent four days and four nights just covered in blood, falling in the water. – Rider Strong

158288. You’ve seen how they make movies like Star Wars and stuff. They’re never really there. They’re in front of a green screen just pretending to be jumping around. – Rider Strong

158289. There’s a real separation between actors and all the other functions of Hollywood. If you’re an actor you’re somehow not a member of the crew. You’re somehow more special. I hate that. – Rider Strong

158290. Cabin Fever was murder. There was a lot of psychological stress, like not knowing if we were going to finish the movie. The day we arrived to start rehearsals, our main investors pulled out. – Rider Strong

158291. Maybe that’s the whole teen oeuvre, you know covering people in disgusting bodily fluids and whatnot. – Rider Strong

158292. Some shows, like PPG, tape in a group session, which is always more fun because you can play off each other. – Tara Strong

158293. We really have a lot of fun at these sessions, we all get along and kid around with each other throughout the job. – Tara Strong

158294. We all sit in front of our mics and our scripts lay on music stands. Then the silliness begins! – Tara Strong

158296. Sometimes a role might be difficult on my throat. – Tara Strong

158297. Whenever you do an animated project or a voice-over project it’s inevitable that part of your personality comes into play. – Tara Strong

158298. My son is old enough to respond to my work. To me, that’s what it is all about. – Tara Strong

158299. Many people think voice over artists just read, there’s much more to it. Without acting beats, scene study and improving skills, you won’t make it. – Tara Strong

158300. In general, I find that for videos the acting is more realistic. – Tara Strong

158301. Don’t be afraid to look silly. – Tara Strong

158302. Start as early as you can. Make tapes of your characters. – Tara Strong

158303. I didn’t record any additional dialogue for this CD, they are excerpts pulled from existing episodes. – Tara Strong

158306. I think it’s definitely beneficial for these characters to have good acting voices behind them and it affects the characters in a way that people can feel like they’re part of the game and that they know these characters. – Tara Strong

158307. I think there are more female characters in videogames now but I also think that’s because videogames in general are more diverse now. – Tara Strong

158308. I usually have 10 different animation projects going at a time. – Tara Strong

158309. I’m not sure specifically but there’s definitely parts of me in Rikku. – Tara Strong

158310. It is easy to study the rules of overloading and of templates without noticing that together they are one of the keys to elegant and efficient type-safe containers. – Bjarne Stroustrup

158311. Thus, the standard library will serve as both a tool and as a teacher. – Bjarne Stroustrup

158312. This evolution may compromise Java’s claim of being simpler than C++, but my guess is that the effort will make Java a better language than it is today. – Bjarne Stroustrup

158313. The standard library saves programmers from having to reinvent the wheel. – Bjarne Stroustrup

158314. Personally, I look forward to better tools for analyzing C++ source code. – Bjarne Stroustrup

158315. People who passionately want to believe that the world is basically simple react to this with a fury that goes beyond what I consider appropriate for discussing a programming language. – Bjarne Stroustrup

158316. My list of basic tools is a partial answer to the question about what has changed: Over the past few years, large numbers of programmers have come to depend on elaborate tools to interface code with systems facilities. – Bjarne Stroustrup

158317. With the increasing importance of standards for system-level objects such as COM and CORBA, it is particularly important that the C++ bindings to those be clean, well documented, and simple to use. – Bjarne Stroustrup

158318. I would encourage nonproprietary standards for tools and libraries. – Bjarne Stroustrup

158319. I find languages that support just one programming paradigm constraining. – Bjarne Stroustrup

158320. However, when Java is promoted as the sole programming language, its flaws and limitations become serious. – Bjarne Stroustrup

158321. First, I’d like to see the basic tools such as compilers, debuggers, profilers, database interfaces, GUI builders, CAD tools, and so forth fully support the ISO standard. – Bjarne Stroustrup

158322. Defining OO as based on the use of class hierarchies and virtual functions is also practical in that it provides some guidance as to where OO is likely to be successful. – Bjarne Stroustrup

158323. Clearly, I reject the view that there is one way that is right for everyone and for every problem. – Bjarne Stroustrup

158324. After all, C++ isn’t a perfect match for Java’s design aims either. – Bjarne Stroustrup

158325. Certainly not every good program is object-oriented, and not every object-oriented program is good. – Bjarne Stroustrup

158326. Scientists across the globe are catching on – global warming is not real science. There is a sucker born every minute who believes in it, and Al Gore is playing the role of P.T. Barnum. – Max S. Strozier

158327. I think we’re going to have to forget about the radio and just go back to word of mouth. – Joe Strummer

158328. What I like about playing America is you can be pretty sure you’re not going to get hit with a full can of beer when you’re singing and I really enjoy that! – Joe Strummer

158329. Yeah, all those things, responsibility, pressure. It’s a bit stressful. I try and come to terms with it by not thinking about it. – Joe Strummer

158330. When you blame yourself, you learn from it. If you blame someone else, you don’t learn nothing, cause hey, it’s not your fault, it’s his fault, over there. – Joe Strummer

158331. With The Simpsons you can go back to work with a keen heart. – Joe Strummer

158332. I began thinking there should be an American phrase book, ’cause I’ve got an Italian phrase book, and an Arabic one… now a British one. I think it’d be pretty good to have an American phrase book. – Joe Strummer

158333. I have a weird life because I live on songwriting royalties, which are a strange income. Sometimes it rains, sometimes it doesn’t. – Joe Strummer

158334. Anyway, it’s good to be sent back to the underground. There’s always a good side to bad things and the good side to this is that at least everyone has to go back down. – Joe Strummer

158335. Omit needless words. – William Strunk, Jr.

158336. Vigorous writing is concise. – William Strunk, Jr.

158337. Make definite assertions. Avoid tame, colorless, hesitating, non-committal language. – William Strunk, Jr.

158338. It is worse to be irresolute than to be wrong. – William Strunk, Jr.

158339. If you don’t know how to pronounce a word, say it loud! – William Strunk, Jr.

158340. A sentence should contain no unnecessary words, a paragraph no unnecessary sentences, for the same reason that a drawing should have no unnecessary lines and a machine no unnecessary parts. – William Strunk, Jr.

158341. Vigorous writing is concise. A sentence should contain no unnecessary words, a paragraph no unnecessary sentences, for the same reason that a drawing should have no unnecessary lines and a machine no unnecessary parts. – William Strunk, Jr.

158342. Famous remarks are very seldom quoted correctly. – Simeon Strunsky

158343. New York has more hermits than will be found in all the forests, mountains and deserts of the United States. – Simeon Strunsky

158344. People who want to understand democracy should spend less time in the library with Aristotle and more time on the buses and in the subway. – Simeon Strunsky

158345. I get bored at the theatre a lot because I notice that there’s not always a connection between the actors. They may be technically proficient, but they’re not surprising each other. I’m thrilled by actors who make choices that are surprising. – Lusia Strus

158346. What draws me to the theatre, and what appealed to me about Too Much Light, is that you have no idea what’s going to happen. That’s the most exciting part of theatre, it’s never the same. If it were, it would be like watching a movie. – Lusia Strus

158347. There’s a part of me that wants to be known and make a comfortable living but still be able to go grocery shopping. My overall idea of success is having people I want to work with want to work with me. – Lusia Strus

158348. I’ve always had this deep and chronic sense of dissatisfaction. – Lusia Strus

158349. I think my face and voice suit me better as I get older. – Lusia Strus

158350. I realized that I wanted to play characters and do traditional theatre. I wanted to make believe again. I like putting on a costume and pretending to be someone else for a few hours, and I have a great respect for playwrights. – Lusia Strus

158351. What I love about theatre is that it disappears as it happens. – Lusia Strus

158352. I don’t call myself an artist. I act. That’s what I do. – Lusia Strus

158353. I always wanted attention, and I realized I could make people laugh. – Lusia Strus

158354. I actually would love to live in New York. But I need land; I need space. I’d love to move to a place where I could have a lot of land and a goat. – Lusia Strus

158355. College was a great time. I partied there, but I also learned how to act. – Lusia Strus

158356. Acting is very much like a child making believe. I’m not one to become a character, but I fall in love with the character. It’s like having faith; you’re going to be that person for a while. – Lusia Strus

158357. I personally take cues directly from the script, then I like to surprise the other actors. But you must maintain control on a level and see how far you can go up, down or out emotionally. You have to balance the craft with spontaneity. – Lusia Strus

158358. I pray to be of service to the playwright, the audience, the other actors and my character. – Lusia Strus

158359. I just feel energized when I am around young, talented people. There is something about these kids that’s amazing. I learn as much from them as they do from me. – Sally Struthers

158360. If a man is pictured chopping off a woman’s breast, it only gets a R rating, but if, God forbid, a man is pictured kissing a woman’s breast, it gets an X rating. Why is violence more acceptable than tenderness? – Sally Struthers

158361. I had such a great year I didn’t want to forget it. – Dick Stuart

158362. I’ve been very, very successful. It’s very satisfying to me. – Gloria Stuart

158366. It was a struggle treating Claude Rains as my lover, but we were friendly. It was no great love affair. – Gloria Stuart

158367. The great actresses and actors receive awards for great roles in great films. – Gloria Stuart

158368. The John Ford pictures I made are highly regarded, but at the time they didn’t seem like that. – Gloria Stuart

158369. There’s no point in working if I’m not involved and interested. – Gloria Stuart

158370. When I was little I thought, isn’t it nice that everybody celebrates on my birthday? Because it’s July 4th. – Gloria Stuart

158371. I love working. – Gloria Stuart

158784. It is often said that the earth belongs to the race, as if raw land was a boon, or gift. – William Graham Sumner

158785. It is remarkable that jealousy of individual property in land often goes along with very exaggerated doctrines of tribal or national property in land. – William Graham Sumner

158786. It is the tendency of the social burdens to crush out the middle class, and to force society into an organization of only two classes, one at each social extreme. – William Graham Sumner

158787. Joint-stock companies are yet in their infancy, and incorporated capital, instead of being a thing which can be overturned, is a thing which is becoming more and more indispensable. – William Graham Sumner

158788. Labor organizations are formed, not to employ combined effort for a common object, but to indulge in declamation and denunciation, and especially to furnish an easy living to some officers who do not want to work. – William Graham Sumner

158789. A drunkard in the gutter is just where he ought to be, according to the fitness and tendency of things. Nature has set upon him the process of decline and dissolution by which she removes things which have survived their usefulness. – William Graham Sumner

158790. If I want to be free from any other man’s dictation, I must understand that I can have no other man under my control. – William Graham Sumner

158795. Nothing will ensure war more certainly or entrench rivalries more seriously than for or against thinking! – Patricia Sun

158796. The discoveries of how we can grow and the insights we need to have really come from the inside out. To have genuine empathy, not as a make-nice tool but as an understanding, is essential to the next step. – Patricia Sun

158797. There is only one thing keeping us from having heaven on earth: we can’t believe it! Why? Because we don’t want to be wrong – so we’ll be right and make it hell! – Patricia Sun

158798. We have magnificent brains, but we use a great deal of our brilliance to keep ourselves stuck and ignorant, to keep ourselves from not shining. We are so afraid of our beauty and radiance and brilliance because it scared the adults around us when we were children. – Patricia Sun

158799. We mostly feel fearful because we feel powerless. We feel powerless, I contend, because of a style of thinking that splits information in two poles that makes us lose all the operative information we need to solve the problem. – Patricia Sun

158800. When we don’t have information, we go to the simplest outlook, to black and white. But then we have to lie to ourselves. Black is never as black as you’re painting it and white is never as white. – Patricia Sun

158801. You can’t take sides when you know the earth is round. – Patricia Sun

158802. I am a temperance Republican down to my toes. – Billy Sunday

158803. You can’t raise the standard of women’s morals by raising their pay envelope. It lies deeper than that. – Billy Sunday

158804. You might as well try and dam Niagara Falls with toothpicks as to stop the reform wave sweeping our land. – Billy Sunday

158805. I tell you that the curse of God Almighty is on the saloon. – Billy Sunday

158806. I have been, and will go on, fighting that damnable, dirty, rotten business with all the power at my command. – Billy Sunday

158807. I dare not exercise personal liberty if it infringes on the liberty of others. – Billy Sunday

158808. If there is no hell, a good many preachers are obtaining money under false pretenses. – Billy Sunday

158809. I challenge you to show me where the saloon has ever helped business, education, church, morals or anything we hold dear. – Billy Sunday

158810. I believe there is no doctrine more dangerous to the Church today than to convey the impression that a revival is something peculiar in itself and cannot be judged by the same rules of causes and effect as other things. – Billy Sunday

158811. I believe the Bible is the word of God from cover to cover. – Billy Sunday

158812. There is nothing in the world of art like the songs mother used to sing. – Billy Sunday

158813. I am the sworn, eternal and uncompromising enemy of the liquor traffic. – Billy Sunday

158814. When may a revival be expected? When the wickedness of the wicked grieves and distresses the Christian. – Billy Sunday

158815. Hypocrites in the Church? Yes, and in the lodge and at the home. Don’t hunt through the Church for a hypocrite. Go home and look in the mirror. Hypocrites? Yes. See that you make the number one less. – Billy Sunday

158816. Home is the place we love best and grumble the most. – Billy Sunday

158817. Hell is the highest reward that the devil can offer you for being a servant of his. – Billy Sunday

158818. Going to church doesn’t make you a Christian any more than going to a garage makes you an automobile. – Billy Sunday

158819. God Almighty never intended that the devil should triumph over the Church. He never intended that the saloons should walk rough-shod over Christianity. – Billy Sunday

158820. Conversion is a complete surrender to Jesus. It’s a willingness to do what he wants you to do. – Billy Sunday

158821. Christianity means a lot more than church membership. – Billy Sunday

158822. At Kansas City, Kansas, before the saloons were closed, they were getting ready to build an addition to the jail. Now the doors swing idly on the hinges and there is nobody to lock in the jails. – Billy Sunday

158823. And if you think that anybody is going to frighten me, you don’t know me yet. – Billy Sunday

158824. After all is said that can be said upon the liquor traffic, its influence is degrading upon the individual, the family, politics and business, and upon everything that you touch in this old world. – Billy Sunday

158825. I believe that a long step toward public morality will have been taken when sins are called by their right names. – Billy Sunday

158826. The rivers of America will run with blood filled to their banks before we will submit to them taking the Bible out of our schools. – Billy Sunday

158827. A revival does two things. First, it returns the Church from her backsliding and second, it causes the conversion of men and women; and it always includes the conviction of sin on the part of the Church. What a spell the devil seems to cast over the Church today! – Billy Sunday

158828. Jesus Christ was God’s revenue officer. – Billy Sunday

158829. Live so that when the final summons comes you will leave something more behind you than an epitaph on a tombstone or an obituary in a newspaper. – Billy Sunday

158832. Religion needs a baptism of horse sense. – Billy Sunday

158833. Some persons have lived manly or womanly lives, and they lack but one thing – open confession of the Lord Jesus Christ. Some men think that they must come to him in a certain way – that they must be stirred by emotion or something like that. – Billy Sunday

158834. Some persons think that they have to look like a hedgehog to be pious. – Billy Sunday

158835. Temptation is the devil looking through the keyhole. Yielding is opening the door and inviting him in. – Billy Sunday

158836. The Democratic party of Florida has put a temperance plank in its platform and the Republican party of every state would nail that plank in their platform if they thought it would carry the election. – Billy Sunday

158837. Whiskey is all right in its place – but its place is hell. – Billy Sunday

158838. The fellow that has no money is poor. The fellow that has nothing but money is poorer still. – Billy Sunday

158839. When the English language gets in my way, I walk over it. – Billy Sunday

158840. The saloon is a liar. It promises good cheer and sends sorrow. – Billy Sunday

158841. The trouble with many men is that they have got just enough religion to make them miserable. If there is not joy in religion, you have got a leak in your religion. – Billy Sunday

158842. The world is wrong side up. It needs to be turned upside down in order to be right side up. – Billy Sunday

158843. There is no law, divine or human, that the saloon respects. – Billy Sunday

158844. They tell me a revival is only temporary; so is a bath, but it does you good. – Billy Sunday

158845. Try praising your wife, even if it does frighten her at first. – Billy Sunday

158846. Unless you have made a complete surrender and are doing his will it will avail you nothing if you’ve reformed a thousand times and have your name on fifty church records. – Billy Sunday

158847. What have you given the world it never possessed before you came? – Billy Sunday

158848. When is a revival needed? When carelessness and unconcern keep the people asleep. – Billy Sunday

158849. If you don’t do your part, don’t blame God. – Billy Sunday

158850. The devil says I’m out, but the Lord says I’m safe. – Billy Sunday

158851. There are individuals who have never done anything for Jesus Christ, and I have no doubt there are preachers as well, who have never done anything for the God Almighty. – Billy Sunday

158852. And when things are not going well in Toronto, you’re going to hear about it. And you’re going to say things are not good at all, where it’s really not that bad. – Mats Sundin

158853. It was hard to watch, the business side is so big in the game. – Mats Sundin

158854. I’ve been around racing a fairly long time, but when it comes to the important issues, I’m happy to let others make the big decisions. – Mats Sundin

158855. I’m sure once my career’s over, when I look back when I’m older, I can maybe appreciate it a little bit more. – Mats Sundin

158856. I’m 31 years old and I want to be part of a championship team before my career is over. – Mats Sundin

158860. It’s all trotters in Sweden, so that’s what’s always caught my eye. – Mats Sundin

158861. At this level, you put a lot of pressure on yourself as a player to perform and do well. – Mats Sundin

158862. Everybody is excited to play so I think who plays with whom is a minor thing at this point. – Mats Sundin

158863. Players come and go, good friends, players who performed well. You can’t control that. – Mats Sundin

158864. Seeing someone else perform and letting me be the critic for once… that’s not a bad thing. – Mats Sundin

158865. Since I came here I’ve been treated awesome, in all aspects. I really enjoy playing here. – Mats Sundin

158866. When I was young, I would go to the races and it was an unbelievable feeling when you’d watch them race. – Mats Sundin

158867. With the fans and the Toronto Maple Leafs organization, the way I’ve been treated here has been awesome. – Mats Sundin

158868. My job is to make sure we keep performing. – Mats Sundin

158869. I always thought Ray Bourque was a great competitor. – Mats Sundin

158870. Any chance you have to sit back and be the one watching is great. – Mats Sundin

158871. It is necessary to expose the false propaganda of the imperialists and thoroughly dispel the illusion that the imperialists will give up their positions in the colonies and dependent countries with good will. – Kim Il Sung

158872. The most important thing in our war preparations is to teach all our people to hate U.S. imperialism. – Kim Il sung

158873. South Koreans who have seen and praised the mass games should remember the hardship of tearful children. Teachers drive them hard with curses and orders to repeat and repeat. When the children return home in the evening, they can hardly walk. – Kim Il sung

158874. Peace secured by slavish submission is not peace. – Kim Il sung

158875. Otherwise, we will not be able to defeat the U.S. imperialists who boast of their technological superiority. – Kim Il sung

158876. Lenin lived, Lenin lives, Lenin will live. – Kim Il sung

158877. We are opposed to the line of compromise with imperialism. At the same time, we cannot tolerate the practice of only shouting against imperialism, but, in actual fact, being afraid to fight it. – Kim Il Sung

158878. The peoples of Asia, Africa, and Latin America have common interest and are in the position to support each other in their anti-imperialist and anti-U.S. struggle. As long as Africa and Latin America are not free. – Kim Il Sung

158879. The oppressed peoples can liberate themselves only through struggle. This is a simple and clear truth confirmed by history. – Kim Il Sung

158880. The most important thing in our war preparations is to teach all our people to hate U.S. imperialism. Otherwise, we will not be able to defeat the U.S. imperialists who boast of their technological superiority. – Kim Il Sung

158881. It is wrong to try to avoid the struggle against imperialism under the pretext that independence and revolution are important, but that peace is still more precious. – Kim Il Sung

158882. Catholicism is a wide tent in terms of political and legal positions. We could have nine Catholics on the Supreme Court and a great deal of diversity toward the law. – Cass Sunstein

158883. There are some lawyers who think of themselves as basically instruments of whoever their clients are, and they pride themselves on their professional craft. – Cass Sunstein

158884. There is no proportional representation requirement in the Equal Protection Clause. – Cass Sunstein

158885. As a matter of history, the Fourteenth Amendment was not understood to ban segregation on the basis of race. – Cass Sunstein

158886. Simply put, broadband voice is an interstate matter that must be dealt with through clear national standards. – John Sununu

158887. Defining marriage is a power that should be left to the states. Moreover, no state should be forced to recognize a marriage that is not within its own laws, Constitution, and legal precedents. – John Sununu

158888. For my children, it makes sense to talk about modernizing Social Security, letting them create stronger personal accounts, letting them get a higher rate of return over the long run. – John Sununu

158889. I believe our foreign assistance should be scrutinized, should be debated, and that we should strike the right balance, but in all cases the foreign assistance that we provide around the world should be used to further our national security interests. – John Sununu

158890. I do not support raising the minimum wage, and the reason is as follows. When the minimum wage is raised, workers are priced out of the market. That is the economic reality that seems, at least so far, to be missing from this discussion. – John Sununu

158891. I’m running for senator because it’s time for a change. – John Sununu

158892. If you wait until those weapons pose a direct, clear, present danger to the United States, you’ve probably waited too long. – John Sununu

158893. It worries me about our unwillingness to really address reforms and modernization in Medicare. This thing was designed 37 years ago. It has not evolved to keep pace with current medical technology. – John Sununu

158894. It’s good to give seniors more choices and more options, let them choose a plan that’s best for them and target assistance to the lowest income people. – John Sununu

158895. People in New Hampshire know that I’ll talk thoughtfully, substantively about any issue. – John Sununu

158896. This is technology that will not go away. And to risk it moving into the hands of a terrorist group like al Qaeda or to other focused enemies of the United States, would have tragic consequences. – John Sununu

158897. We will have to continue to improve our human intelligence system-something that was, unfortunately, lacking in the years which led up to September 11. This is going to be a continuing process of change. – John Sununu

158898. When we’re talking about technology that involves weapons of mass destruction, nuclear, chemical or biological weapons, there has to be an element of preemption. – John Sununu

158899. Don’t let that weapon technology proliferate. Don’t let Saddam Hussein get capability for nuclear or chemical weapons, because he’s already shown a willingness to use any weapon at his disposal. – John Sununu

158900. Let individuals create real wealth, empower them, create something that they can leave for their children. – John Sununu

158901. I really started trying to get my act together in August of 2002. – Ethan Suplee

158902. I want to be on a show that’s as good as the one we’re doing and that we get to make for many years. – Ethan Suplee

158903. I’ve lived a lot in the last 12 years or however long its been since Boy Meets World. I have a lot more to draw upon in playing Randy than I did playing Frankie. Although, I did have a lot of fun playing that role. – Ethan Suplee

158904. I really like The Catcher in the Rye a lot. – Ethan Suplee

158905. I hope that people like us next year like they liked us last year. – Ethan Suplee

158906. I have kids and I want to have a long life and there are certain things that are conducive to that and certain things that aren’t. I’ve opted for the road of happiness and long life. – Ethan Suplee

158907. I don’t need to be on the number one show. Number 25 is fine. – Ethan Suplee

158908. I think anything Tony Kaye would’ve done would’ve been interesting, definitely. And worth seeing. – Ethan Suplee

158909. I definitely don’t want to achieve some kind of rock star status. – Ethan Suplee

158910. Writing, yeah. Me and my friend Scott Bloom just finished the first rough draft of a script. It’s taken us three years to do, but we finally got a first draft. And we’ll see whatever happens with that. – Ethan Suplee

158911. I like the Wu Tang Clan a lot. – Ethan Suplee

158912. Tony Kaye is great with that kind of stuff. Up until American History X, he had only done commercials. – Ethan Suplee

158913. The first few years I was in Vermont quite a bit, but I don’t think I ever spent years and years there. – Ethan Suplee

158914. I was born in Manhattan on West 12th. My parents were kind of hippies and they did a home birth. – Ethan Suplee

158915. Tyrone, I think they’re taking to festivals. I don’t know which festivals it will be at. It’s like a buddy picture. It’s a couple of guys driving across the country and they get to a small town and they hit a guy. The guy turns out to be a drug smuggler. – Ethan Suplee

158916. But the drugs are kind of like taboo, at least among me and my friends and the people I’ve worked with. – Ethan Suplee

158917. But my favorite period for actors is the 70s. I think so many great movies were made in the 70s. The 90s just seem to be a confused decade. Nobody knows, really, what’s going on. – Ethan Suplee

158918. As far as big egos, there are definitely guys out there that just think God only knows what about themselves. – Ethan Suplee

158919. It was like there’s got to be some way to stay working and stay productive in Los Angeles. TV is that kind of thing for an actor. Unless you get stuck in one of these shows where you have to go to Vancouver. – Ethan Suplee

158920. David Bowie’s my favorite musician. I love him above all, but I’m really into rap a lot right now. – Ethan Suplee

158921. I’d like to just work – steadily work – and do parts that I enjoy doing. – Ethan Suplee

158922. Everything you need to get that relaxed driving that brings consistency only comes with practice. – John Surtees

158923. The team came together. We’re looking forward to the next race. – John Surtees

158924. Our driver policy was partly dictated by who was available because of other contracts. – John Surtees

158925. We couldn’t get the car back until well after the end of the race and we had very little time for repairs. – John Surtees

158926. Obviously the first sentiment is disappointment that we didn’t get the car home and more disappointment that at the time that it stopped the car was in the lead. – John Surtees

158927. If he can’t do it with Ferrari, well, he can’t do it. – John Surtees

158928. The team did a superb pitstop. We had steadily improved. – John Surtees

158929. I get appalled when I see good drivers being left on the sidelines because they haven’t come up with the half million to a million to put themselves in a competitive car. – John Surtees

158930. A1 Great Britain has to look at the longer term. – John Surtees

158931. I left with nothing and needing to begin a new career. – John Surtees

158932. The only infallible rule we know is, that the man who is always talking about being a gentleman never is one. – Robert Smith Surtees

158933. More people are flattered into virtue than bullied out of vice. – Robert Smith Surtees

158934. Better be killed than frightened to death. – Robert Smith Surtees

158935. I wanted to write it long before I wrote Every Night, Josephine! I’d been thinking about it a long time. – Jacqueline Susann

158936. Acting is glamour but writing is hard work, so I’m going to be an actress. – Jacqueline Susann

158937. I don’t think any novelist should be concerned with literature. – Jacqueline Susann

158938. The second draft is on yellow paper, that’s when I work on characterizations. The third is pink, I work on story motivations. Then blue, that’s where I cut, cut, cut. – Jacqueline Susann

158939. As a writer no one’s gonna tell me how to write, I’m gonna write the way I wanna write! – Jacqueline Susann

158940. If you write something the White House doesn’t like, they take you in and say, ‘If you ever write something like you did today, nobody from the White House will ever talk to you again,’ – Ron Suskind

158941. The substance of faith is a hope in the unseen. – Ron Suskind

158942. To try to be authentic these days, to ask questions of the people in power – it’s difficult. This administration has evolved new techniques to handle people like me. Their strategy, in a word, is simple: ignore them. – Ron Suskind

158943. Unfortunately, this is a free society, and we’re gonna have people with trucks, and people with bombs. – Greta Van Susteren

158944. I thought ‘God, what have I done?’… I realized I would be in serious trouble. I thought the best way out of the mess was to make sure she could not tell anybody. – Peter Sutcliffe

158945. The women I killed were filth – bastard prostitutes who were littering the streets. I was just cleaning up the place a bit. – Peter Sutcliffe

158946. The only thing I feel passionate about is my wife. – Donald Sutherland

158947. I have never planned anything. I have been doing this job for over 50 years. I have been paid to work with some wonderful people and it has been a huge gift, to me. – Donald Sutherland

158948. You have a little bit of talent, a certain amount of good fortune and a lot of hard work in pursuit of whatever truth you can find in it, and if you are really lucky, a terrific partner and I have that and those four things worked out for me. – Donald Sutherland

158949. What the nation’s built on is discussion, contradiction and growth, and at the moment you can’t discuss anything. If you do start to discuss it, you get criticized. If people hate us, you have to find out why and try to solve that problem. – Donald Sutherland

158950. Vietnam was a lie but at least there was a political agenda. It was the domino theory. Iraq is about nothing but George Bush’s ego laced with imperialist ambitions. And it was helped by your government. – Donald Sutherland

158951. To them though, not to us, we were just a catalyst for their imagination. – Donald Sutherland

158952. I have been able to play a lot of guys and they have kept me working. – Donald Sutherland

158953. Not too much, though there’s a certain amount of rancour and bitterness when someone tries to fire you. – Donald Sutherland

158954. No, I’m not rich. I had a tax problem in this country, curiously enough, and my accountant said the British government was patently wrong in taxing me, and they were, but we couldn’t persuade them and it cost me everything I had. – Donald Sutherland

158955. I would look a little silly playing Casanova now. – Donald Sutherland

158956. At my age, you sort of fart your way into a role. – Donald Sutherland

158957. I had a kind of meandering little career, and then I was given a chance to play one of the bottom six in The Dirty Dozen. – Donald Sutherland

158958. I don’t think I have one iota of cynicism about acting. – Donald Sutherland

158959. I am so glad my wife tolerates me. And we have three wonderful sons. – Donald Sutherland

158960. Everything was my fault. I was so dumb. But if I hadn’t made the mistakes I made, I wouldn’t have met the wonderful woman I’ve been married to for over 30 years, so I guess that makes the mistakes OK. – Donald Sutherland

158961. But no, I love acting, it’s a wonderful job. – Donald Sutherland

158962. But even with no money you could still go to places like the Scotch Club and, you know, John Lennon might be sitting right over there, but I was certainly not a part of any of that circle. I was truly peripheral. – Donald Sutherland

158963. Joe Wright called me and I also had some trepidation along those lines but he said no, it would work. He had a very clear and specific idea of what he wanted to do. – Donald Sutherland

158964. I love grabbing my wife and going to a distant location to film. – Donald Sutherland

158965. For the saddest epitaph which can be carved in memory of a vanished freedom is that it was lost because its possessors failed to stretch forth a saving hand while there was still time. – George Sutherland

158966. If the provisions of the constitution be not upheld when they pinch as well as when they comfort, they may as well be abandoned. – George Sutherland

158967. The legal right of a taxpayer to decrease the amount of what otherwise would be his taxes, or altogether avoid them, by means which the law permits, cannot be doubted. – George Sutherland

158968. They say the average person can’t make a living in art… but if you tell me there’s something I can’t do, that’s what I have to do. – George Sutherland

158969. I’m somewhat horrified because I don’t think the young people today even know what history is. Some of them don’t’ even study History at school anymore or Geography and they don’t know where one place is from another. – Joan Sutherland

158970. I wasn’t actually trained by my mother, she said she never taught me but she was a great singer herself and I can’t remember when I didn’t listen to her sing and imitate her. – Joan Sutherland

158971. I’m very happy to sing whatever I’m singing. I’ve always enjoyed any role I’ve been given at a certain time. They’ve all been favourites, they’ve all been wonderful pieces to play. – Joan Sutherland

158972. Technique is the basis of every pursuit. If you’re a sportsman or you’re a singer or a swimmer, well that comes under sport but you have to develop a basic technique to know what you’re doing at any given time. – Joan Sutherland

158973. You can listen to what everybody says, but the fact remains that you’ve got to get out there and do the thing yourself. – Joan Sutherland

158974. I don’t sing for anybody. I wouldn’t sing for the Queen dear. – Joan Sutherland

158975. Youth is an amazing thing: I think back on when we did The Lost Boys, and I didn’t think I could do anything wrong. – Kiefer Sutherland

158976. I’ve always traveled with a picture of my daughter from 1989, her kindergarten school picture, that has ‘I love you, Daddy’ written on it. She’s always made fun of me because I never changed that picture out. It’s like my resistance to her getting older. It was the first thing she’d ever written to me and it means the world to me. – Kiefer Sutherland

158977. I’ve had some amazing people in my life. Look at my father – he came from a small fishing village of five hundred people and at six foot four with giant ears and a kind of very odd expression, thought he could be a movie star. So go figure, you know? – Kiefer Sutherland

158978. I’ve made films that I’ve given all I had to, that no one has seen. The bottom line is I want to work and I want someone to enjoy it. – Kiefer Sutherland

158979. My mother’s five-foot-two, and I’ll be honest with you – she’s the only person I’m scared of. – Kiefer Sutherland

158980. My parents not only did it for a living, but they were really good at it. – Kiefer Sutherland

158981. My whole mood or sense can change by virtue of the music that I’m listening to. It really does affect me on a visceral and emotional level. – Kiefer Sutherland

158982. One of the big draws of the show is here’s a guy who is ordinary in a lot of ways but, due to his profession, he’s placed in extraordinary situations that he has to make right with action and with thought. That’s what is appealing about Jack – he takes charge. – Kiefer Sutherland

158983. The most significant piece of advice my father gave me early on about acting was, don’t get caught acting. Really believe in what you’re doing and then commit to it. Even if it feels uncomfortable, even if you feel that you’re gonna look like an ass. It’s all acting, but find the truth in a moment as opposed to just pretending you have and rather than trying to act your way out of it. – Kiefer Sutherland

158984. The writers keep managing to turn the show in on itself, coming up with something that’s well thought-out and miraculous. – Kiefer Sutherland

158985. There are a lot of movies I’d like to throw away. That’s not to say that I went in with that attitude. Any film I ever started, I went in with all the hope and best intentions in the world, but some films just don’t work. – Kiefer Sutherland

158986. There are three things we need to do for a band. We need to make a great record; we need to get the record played; and we need to find an audience for the live shows. – Kiefer Sutherland

158987. I’m a huge fan of Canadian rock-and-roll. When I was growing up, Rush came out with a record called Hemispheres, and I must have listened to that record for two years straight. Even when I was asleep I had it on. So, yeah, whenever I hear a Rush tune, the first thing I think of is Toronto. – Kiefer Sutherland

158988. I’m not that complicated as an actor. I have a formula in which I work, yeah. But not like Sean Penn does. Sean is one of the few actors I know who can work like that, actually becoming the character he is playing, and get consistent results. I don’t believe you can ever be someone else. You manifest different levels of your own personality to come up with a character. – Kiefer Sutherland

158989. There’s a confidence that comes from youth and not knowing better. But there comes a point, as an actor, when you do know better, and that is when the fear starts. – Kiefer Sutherland

158990. I didn’t realize that television has gone through immense changes and has become very progressive. – Kiefer Sutherland

158991. I did a play called Throne of Straw when I was 11, at the Odyssey Theatre in Los Angeles. It became really clear to me at that point that I enjoyed acting more than any other experience I was having. – Kiefer Sutherland

158992. I couldn’t see my father’s films because they were restricted and we didn’t have videos or DVDs back then. – Kiefer Sutherland

158993. When Julia and I broke up and I was really scared to go into a market or anywhere because I thought, ‘Oh God, everyone must hate me. And that wasn’t the case. People said, ‘I’m sorry this happened, man. Are you alright?’ – Kiefer Sutherland

158994. When I wasn’t the flavor of the week or month or day, those were hard times. – Kiefer Sutherland

158995. When I saw Virginia Woolf, somewhere between the first and second acts, someone I had known as my mother became somebody else. – Kiefer Sutherland

158996. I like chatting with people. If people ask me a direct question, I give them a direct answer and I feel I’ve always done that with the press. – Kiefer Sutherland

158997. When we shoot 24, there are so many things I have to worry about, from the script to technical things to my performance, that I don’t have a second to be bored or take anything for granted. We produce 24 hours of film a season, which is like making 12 movies. – Kiefer Sutherland

158998. When we shoot 24, there are so many things I have to worry about, from the script to technical things to my performance, that I don’t have a second to be bored or take anything for granted. – Kiefer Sutherland

158999. I think that the day you’ve figured out the differences between women and men is the day that you’re no longer attracted to women. It’s the difference that is so fantastic and frustrating and angering, and really sexy. – Kiefer Sutherland

159000. When you’re a young actor you like to go for characters with a bit of flair, so in many films I ended up playing the weirdos. I can assure you I’m not a psycho or a criminal or a bully. – Kiefer Sutherland
