178806. A poet’s autobiography is his poetry. Anything else is just a footnote. – Yevgeny Yevtushenko

178812. Of-course we did, but we didn’t reply because we knew once this leaks the others will scatter, so in the few days we moved quickly before the press got hold of it. The press did get hold of it a few days later, we nabbed, we were able to get 15, the others got away. – Lee Kuan Yew

178813. The big nest was in Afghanistan, thats not quite cleared, then there are nests in the Philippines, there are nests in Indonesia, the Malaysians are clearing up their nests. – Lee Kuan Yew

178815. A man is free to go up as high as he can reach up to; but I, with all my style and pep, can’t get a man my equal because a girl is always judged by her mother. – Anzia Yezierska

178820. We will not reform the yuan until the time is right even if there is external pressure. – Wu Yi

178839. I’m not Ang Lee who knows so much about western market and the taste of western audiences. – Zhang Yimou

178840. Now a movie with 30 million returns would be something very incredible and the producer can only get 10 to 15 million. This is only 100 thousands US dollars. This is not enough! – Zhang Yimou

178841. People have become shallower. They view spending, entertaining, seeking leisure and enjoying as the main objectives of their life. – Zhang Yimou

178842. In addition, I’m finishing a track for the movie ‘Waking Up In Reno’, but there are numerous other singers I look forward to recording with in the near future. – Dwight Yoakam

178843. In the past 3-4 years I’ve developed a habit of keeping numerous small cassette recorders in my house and in a bag with me so that I’m able to commit to tape memory song ideas on a constant basis. – Dwight Yoakam

178844. We started shooting, and then Jodie found out she was pregnant. Forest broke it to me – he’d gone to work and heard it on the radio! It seemed like the movie was doomed. But, like these characters, there was a disregard for all the signs along the way. – Dwight Yoakam

178845. Quality is timeless: It will clearly define itself. And so I make reference to and acknowledge things that I feel have been dismissed, trying to restate those musical and cultural elements clearly and vehemently. – Dwight Yoakam

178846. Only beginning to present itself over the horizon. – Dwight Yoakam

178847. ‘m really proud of it. To me, it’s a movie about character behavior and the pecking order of the pack, as well as the central character’s massive survival guilt. – Dwight Yoakam

178848. It’s meant to reaffirm the validity of that music – clean, minimalist, honest, classic music. – Dwight Yoakam

178849. It varies from song to song, although Buck Owens and I recently collaborated on writing a duet together and am looking forward with a great deal of anticipation to recording that track for the new studio album. – Dwight Yoakam

178850. I was very fortunate in having David Fincher, the director come to me. Now I’ve seen the finished product, I feel that every bit of the nine months we spent on the film was worth it. – Dwight Yoakam

178851. A voice expressing emotion in a musical way moves on. It’s like the finale of the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) – the world turns in on itself, as a universe unto itself, in the shape of one human being. – Dwight Yoakam

178852. I tried to pay some small tribute to A Man and a Woman (1966) with the recurring musical theme. – Dwight Yoakam

178853. I think actors are at the mercy of the opportunities presented to them. So you kind of have to wait for them to choose you. My music is insular – I can choose that. – Dwight Yoakam

178854. Fortunately any of the songs we’ve recorded can be extremely fulfilling to perform depending on the variety of circumstances that surround any given show. – Dwight Yoakam

178855. Control success before it controls you. – Dwight Yoakam

178856. But that is a valid, continuing service that that music – which is, in some cases, 80 or 90 years old – is rendering. And proving its own timelessness. – Dwight Yoakam

178857. At the end of the film Val suggests there may be a way to rejoin the living, when he says, ‘Let’s see if we’re able to live among the living, walk among the living.’ – Dwight Yoakam

178866. The purest expression of the doctrine of Liberalism was probably that of Benjamin Constant. – Francis Parker Yockey

178867. The State becomes society or humanity on the ethical side, a production and trade system on the economic side. – Francis Parker Yockey

178868. Pessimism only describes an attitude, and not facts, and hence is entirely subjective. – Francis Parker Yockey

178869. A political theory seeks to find from history the limits of the politically possible. – Francis Parker Yockey

178870. To the fantastic mental illness of Rationalism, hard facts are regrettable things, and to talk about them is to create them. – Francis Parker Yockey

178871. The way politics divides the world is into friend and enemy. – Francis Parker Yockey

178872. Hatred is not contained in political thinking. Any hatred worked up against the public enemy is non-political, and always shows some weakness in the internal political situation. – Francis Parker Yockey

178873. No section of the American populace has been more completely deceived by the forces interested in keeping the truth from the people than America’s youth. – Francis Parker Yockey

178874. As a world view, Darwinism cannot of course be refuted, since Faith is, always has been, and always will be, stronger than facts. – Francis Parker Yockey

178875. Alliance does not mean love, any more than war means hate. – Francis Parker Yockey

178876. Capitalism is not an economic system, but a world-outlook, or rather, a part of a whole world-outlook. – Francis Parker Yockey

178877. Every science is a profane restatement of the preceding dogmas of the religious period. – Francis Parker Yockey

178878. A moment’s reflection shows that Liberalism is entirely negative. It is not a formative force, but always and only a disintegrating force. – Francis Parker Yockey

178879. If pessimism is despair, optimism is cowardice and stupidity. Is there any need to choose between them? – Francis Parker Yockey

178880. Leftist ideas are a part of the very atmosphere which American youth breathes. – Francis Parker Yockey

178881. Liberalism can only be defined negatively. It is a mere critique, not a living idea. – Francis Parker Yockey

178884. Man as a pure animal does not exist. – Francis Parker Yockey

178885. Every non-political human grouping of whatever kind, legal, social, religious, economic or other becomes at last political if it creates an opposition deep enough to range men against one another as enemies. – Francis Parker Yockey

178889. The season of failure is the best time for sowing the seeds of success. – Paramahansa Yogananda

178890. The man form is higher than the angel form; of all forms it is the highest. Man is the highest being in creation, because he aspires to freedom. – Paramahansa Yogananda

178891. The happiness of one’s own heart alone cannot satisfy the soul; one must try to include, as necessary to one’s own happiness, the happiness of others. – Paramahansa Yogananda

178892. Let my soul smile through my heart and my heart smile through my eyes, that I may scatter rich smiles in sad hearts. – Paramahansa Yogananda

178893. Remain calm, serene, always in command of yourself. You will then find out how easy it is to get along. – Paramahansa Yogananda

178895. Life finds its purpose and fulfillment in the expansion of happiness. – Maharishi Mahesh Yogi

178896. The important thing is this: to be able, at any moment, to sacrifice what we are for what we could become. – Maharishi Mahesh Yogi

178897. Whatever we put our attention on will grow stronger in our life. – Maharishi Mahesh Yogi

178898. James’s expedition to Scotland is wholly imaginary, though there appears to have been space for it during Henry’s progress to the North to pay his devotions at Beverley Minster. – Charlotte Mary Yonge

178899. When the venture has been made of dealing with historical events and characters, it always seems fair towards the reader to avow what liberties have been taken, and how much of the sketch is founded on history. – Charlotte Mary Yonge

178900. I feel like after acting, the other half of why I love this business is the opportunity to work with and meet people who inspire you. That it pays my rent is a good bonus. – Aaron Yoo

178901. I’m an actor in between jobs right now, so I kind of live the life of a 7-year old. – Aaron Yoo

178902. Doing Shakespeare in the Park has always been a dream. Everyone else says Hamlet, but I want to play Romeo. – Aaron Yoo

178903. Without territory, it does not even have the resources to provide detention facilities for prisoners, even if it were interested in holding captured POWs. – John Yoo

178904. President Bush and his commanders announced early in the conflict that the Conventions applied. – John Yoo

178905. Punishing abuse in Iraq should not return the U.S. to Sept. 10, 2001, in the way it fights al Qaeda, while Osama bin Laden and his top lieutenants remain at large and continue to plan attacks. – John Yoo

178906. That is because the conflict with al Qaeda is not governed by the Geneva Conventions, which applies only to international conflicts between states that have signed them. – John Yoo

178907. The effort to blur the lines between Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib reflects a deep misunderstanding about the different legal regimes that apply to Iraq and the war against al Qaeda. – John Yoo

178908. The Justices are currently considering a case, argued last month, which seeks to extend the writ of habeas corpus to al Qaeda and Taliban detainees at Guantanamo. – John Yoo

178909. This is not to condone torture, which is still prohibited by the Torture Convention and federal criminal law. – John Yoo

178910. Under the Geneva Convention, for example, a POW is required only to provide name, rank, and serial number and cannot receive any benefits for cooperating. – John Yoo

178911. While Taliban fighters had an initial claim to protection under the conventions, they lost POW status by failing to obey the standards of conduct for legal combatants: wearing uniforms, a responsible command structure, and obeying the laws of war. – John Yoo

178912. It urges policy makers and the Supreme Court to make the mistake of curing what could prove to be an isolated problem by disarming the government of its principal weapon to stop future terrorist attacks. – John Yoo

178913. Nonetheless, Article 5 makes clear that if an Iraqi civilian who is not a member of the armed forces, has engaged in attacks on Coalition forces, the Geneva Convention permits the use of more coercive interrogation approaches to prevent future attacks. – John Yoo

178914. We can guess that the unacceptable conduct of the soldiers at Abu Ghraib resulted in part from the dangerous state of affairs on the ground in a theater of war. – John Yoo

178915. Applying different standards to al Qaeda does not abandon Geneva, but only recognizes that the U.S. faces a stateless enemy never contemplated by the Conventions. – John Yoo

178916. Once the attacks occur, as we learned on Sept. 11, it is too late. It makes little sense to deprive ourselves of an important, and legal, means to detect and prevent terrorist attacks while we are still in the middle of a fight to the death with al Qaeda. – John Yoo

178917. A decision by the Supreme Court to subject Guantanamo to judicial review would eliminate these advantages. – John Yoo

178918. American soldiers had to guard prisoners on the inside while receiving mortar and weapons fire from the outside. Guantanamo is distant from any battlefield, making it far more secure. – John Yoo

178919. Congress’s definition of torture in those laws – the infliction of severe mental or physical pain – leaves room for interrogation methods that go beyond polite conversation. – John Yoo

178920. Human-rights advocates, for example, claim that the mistreatment of Iraqi prisoners is of a piece with President Bush’s 2002 decision to deny al Qaeda and Taliban fighters the legal status of prisoners of war under the Geneva Conventions. – John Yoo

178921. If the Court were to extend its reach to the base, judges could begin managing conditions of confinement, interrogation methods, and the use of information. – John Yoo

178922. In light of the Abu Ghraib prison scandal, critics are arguing that abuses of Iraqi prisoners are being produced by a climate of disregard for the laws of war. – John Yoo

178923. It has never demonstrated any desire to provide humane treatment to captured Americans. If anything, the murders of Nicholas Berg and Daniel Pearl declare al Qaeda’s intentions to kill even innocent civilian prisoners. – John Yoo

178924. It is also worth asking whether the strict limitations of Geneva make sense in a war against terrorists. – John Yoo

178925. It is important to recognize the differences between the war in Iraq and the war on terrorism. The treatment of those detained at Abu Ghraib is governed by the Geneva Conventions, which have been signed by both the U.S. and Iraq. – John Yoo

178926. Al Qaeda operates by launching surprise attacks on civilian targets with the goal of massive casualties. Our only means for preventing future attacks, which could use WMDs, is by acquiring information that allows for pre-emptive action. – John Yoo

178927. I never danced a step in my life so naturally. My first motion picture was a musical, and Bob Fosse was the choreographer. I didn’t exactly dance for Fosse, I just did the best that I could to do what he taught us to do. – Dick York

178928. I took pain pills to get to sleep because I didn’t want to go to work the next day exhausted. – Dick York

178929. My spine healed incorrectly. There were long periods when I’d be perfectly all right, and then there were many other times when I wasn’t, when my back would give out and throw me down to the floor amid waves of nauseating pain. – Dick York

178930. I’ve been blessed. I have no complaints. I’ve been surrounded by people in radio, on stage and in motion pictures and television who love me. The things that have gone wrong have been simply physical things. – Dick York

178931. I’m trying to go over my lines. I woke up on the floor, somebody had me in their arms. I didn’t quite know who, people looked so unfamiliar. That’s about all I remember. – Dick York

178932. I’d managed to bite a very large hole in the side of my tongue before they could pry my teeth apart. By all evidence, and there’s no denying it, that thing I had on the set was a fit. – Dick York

178933. I went to a Gestalt therapist and said that I want to be able to at least tell my muscles that aren’t involved that they don’t have to go into spasms too. – Dick York

178934. I lay in my dressing room after being in make-up waiting to go on. They knew I was feeling pretty rotten and they tried to give me time to rest. But I couldn’t sleep. I couldn’t do anything. – Dick York

178935. I kept having chills. This was in the middle of the summer and I was wearing a sheepskin jacket and I was chilling. I was shaking all over. – Dick York

178936. I had done my first picture and I didn’t have anything to do for awhile. I was asked to come back to New York and do Bus Stop in the role of the cowboy opposite Kim Stanley. – Dick York

178937. Fortunately, I was supposed to look confused and disoriented because, God, I felt that way. – Dick York

178938. Every time I listened to Lux Radio Theatre, I wanted to vomit. – Dick York

178939. Anyone who would let Gary Cooper and the entire cast go charging on horseback without first finding out what kind of footing the horses had is nuts and cannot possibly direct a motion picture. – Dick York

178940. After all, didn’t I blow a magnificent career? – Dick York

178941. I was seeing everything through pain. I would roll out of bed and do my exercises. I had to do that to work out the remainder of the pain pills. I would drink coffee and go to the set and plunge myself so far into my work. – Dick York

178942. You’d go in, read the script once for timing and then you would sit around and play games. The sound effects people would come in and we would do a dress rehearsal so they could get the effects and the music cues in place. Then you would wait until you went on the air. – Dick York

178943. When I did Inherit the Wind, I learned about teaching school. I also found out what a fundamentalist was. – Dick York

178944. Radio allowed people to act with their hearts and minds. – Dick York

178945. We bought an apartment building and were going to live off the rent money. We rented to people who were on welfare and a lot of times they couldn’t pay the rent. We wouldn’t throw them out so we lost the building. – Dick York

178946. Piper insisted she had to be out of breath when we played this one scene, so she ran around the block. Thank God she wasn’t doing a crucifixtion scene; we would have had to nail her to the wall. – Dick York

178947. There was a three hour differential in performances because the sponsor insisted it be done live for California. You would go on at 8 pm in New York but you would also have to go on at 8 p.m. in California. That meant coming back in to do the show at 11 p.m. – Dick York

178948. My girlfriend claims that her last boyfriend was a better kisser than me and I have to admit, he is pretty good. – Dwight York

178949. I think that you have to believe in your destiny; that you will succeed, you will meet a lot of rejection and it is not always a straight path, there will be detours – so enjoy the view. – Michael York

178950. Every role I’ve played, that could’ve happened. It’s nice, it happens, but it is rather disconcerting when a young child comes up to at the airport and starts doing your lines, it happens. – Michael York

178951. I had been in a film, playing a young British aristocrat. My wife told me that she was invited to a dinner and she invited me to dinner and the hostess had seen me and said, ‘You cannot bring him.’ but I think that I’ve done enough to shatter the image. – Michael York

178952. I happen to love working in cinema, but the theater is always there… you know, and I would never shut the door on it. Even though it’s been quite a bit of time since I’ve done a play, last one was in New York. – Michael York

178953. I’ve always enjoyed writing, I graduated with a degree in English; I’ve done bits of journalism. – Michael York

178954. Mike gets to play four roles this time, if we ever did it again, he will play my role as well. He is a comic genius, everyone wants to be in this movie, let’s hope that everyone will wish to see it as well. – Michael York

178955. It’s a question of why they come for your advice. Whatever I tell you, it doesn’t matter, it is completely irrelevant in a way. I know so many actors who were discouraged and put that aside. You will get half-baked opinions. – Michael York

178956. They sent me the script and I thought that there was something very appealing and funny about it. Also, I was familiar with Mike Myers’ work in Saturday Night Live, but I did not know the extent to which he would make this creation. – Michael York

178957. The great thing about university is that they incline you to get up and do it, from the Classics to modern plays, to the humor that Monty Pythons made popular. – Michael York

178958. So that is how I ended up with those two titles, I like Accidentally on Purpose better – it is how we work in our trade – is it really an accident, or is there a thread of destiny in there? That was the intention, I am not sure I found out. – Michael York

178959. No one has developed active tuberculosis. – Michael York

178960. I think it’s hard to know. Feeling fulfilled, because actors face periods of unemployment, there is nothing worse than being at the top of your game; you have so much to give but do not have the platform to do this. – Michael York

178961. Rock and roll is the hamburger that ate the world. – Peter York

178962. If beauty isn’t genius it usually signals at least a high level of animal cunning. – Peter York

178963. I feel I’d like to share my luck and my life. Being in love is the best thing in the world. – Susannah York

178964. Acting and writing go together. Actors write because they love words and becoming other people – we love to escape into other characters. – Susannah York

178965. I was brought up in Scotland and have always been a country person, although the town means a great deal to me, too. – Susannah York

178966. I’ve struggled so hard to reign in my temper because it actually terrifies me. – Susannah York

178967. Men find it difficult because I’ve got so much energy and hardly sleep at night, only four or five hours. I wake up in the early hours and potter around. – Susannah York

178968. Seeing the family is a very important part of my weekend. – Susannah York

178969. Someone had told me about a house in Wandsworth, southwest London – 21 Blenkarne Road – with an incredible garden, so I went and had a look. I walked in and just said, ‘I want it.’ – Susannah York

178970. The things that make me very angry are injustice and bullying. If I see someone bullying a woman or child in the street, or kicking a dog, I go completely mad. – Susannah York

178971. A relationship is lovely if you’re happy, comfortable in it and you really like the person. I can think of nothing better. But there’s nothing worse than having a relationship in which you feel no interest. – Susannah York

178972. Well, I’ve been reading a lot about the fifty years since the Second World War, about Western foreign policy and all that. I try not to let it get to me, but sometimes I just think that there’s no hope. – Thom Yorke

178973. You think I have the responsibilty… I have the responsibility to give the fans a good time! – Thom Yorke

178974. My songs are my kids. Some of them stay with me, some others I have to send out, out to the war. It might sound stupid and it might even sound naive, but that’s just the way it is. – Thom Yorke

178975. One of the interesting things here is that the people who should be shaping the future are politicians. But the political framework itself is so dead and closed that people look to other sources, like artists, because art and music allow people a certain freedom. – Thom Yorke

178976. So ultimately, it’s idealistic to think that artists are able to step away from the power of the media and the way it controls things, and go on doing their own things. – Thom Yorke

178977. Someone needs to tell the truth, but it shouldn’t be my job. – Thom Yorke

178978. The people in charge, globally, are maniacs. They are maniacs, and unless we do something about it these people are going to deprive us of a future. – Thom Yorke

178979. This was something that was obsessing me and creating a writer’s block. To get involved and get stuck in, get the proper information about what’s going on has really helped. – Thom Yorke

178980. We didn’t start out to make a protest record at all. That would have been too shallow. As usual, it was simply a case of absorbing what’s going on around us. – Thom Yorke

178981. We toyed with the idea of making it a double album, but I think that would only have confused everybody even more, so we decided to stick with the songs we picked. – Thom Yorke

178982. Music is more difficult – try naming a political band. The Dead Kennedys. The Dead Kennedys are political, but they are more funny than they are political. – Thom Yorke

178983. Well, my son really loves wildlife. And everytime he draws a polar bear I want to tell him there probably won’t any by the time… he’s my age. That’s kinda hard to deal with. – Thom Yorke

178984. We don’t have to stand on a soap-box and preach because hopefully we’re channelling it through the new record. – Thom Yorke

178985. I think maybe since there isn’t a great deal of access to the mainstream media and people don’t understand the language of mainstream media, if you put music out there with lyrics that are loosely political, people absorb some of it and spit it back out. – Thom Yorke

178986. My dad spent his whole life getting into fights for telling what he believed to be the truth. Basically it comes from my dad-and he’s screaming right-wing, so there you are. – Thom Yorke
