179643. It’s true that the war in Iraq opened a distance in relations between part of Europe and the U.S. government, but our basic ties are stronger than that. We share democracy, free markets and a commitment to Western security. We differ on how to guarantee that security. – Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero

179644. The more equality women have, the fairer, more civilized and tolerant society will be. Sexual equality is a lot more effective against terrorism than military strength. – Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero

179654. I collect things that just look retarded. – Ahmet Zappa

179656. The way this whole novel thing came together was, I sold them one bill of goods and then didn’t communicate very well. I am like Captain Run-on Sentence. – Ahmet Zappa

179657. I picked books by their covers – the worse the cover, the more I wanted to read it. – Ahmet Zappa

179658. Music can be so disturbing and frustrating. I mean the business side of it. The actual making music part is fun, but the business side of it is just so out of control, has nothing to do with anything. – Dweezil Zappa

179659. While it is true that Frank had a great sense of humor, he was also very serious about composing music. In reality there are only a handful of skilled players who can play his most complex pieces. It takes a lot of patience to learn and requires a fantastic memory. – Dweezil Zappa

179660. Yes, but I view Frank’s music as fully composed. In other words, the arrangements can work for any idiom such as a rock band or an orchestra. Frank was a brilliant arranger and could make his music work in any context. He proved that tour after tour and album after album. – Dweezil Zappa

179661. Well, I haven’t been doing that much work with other people per se. I started doing more of that. – Dweezil Zappa

179662. We will have close to 3 months of rehearsals to learn about 30 songs. Frank usually rehearsed a band for at least 3 months. If it took him that long to be comfortable we probably would need double the amount, but It’s just not financially possible to do so. – Dweezil Zappa

179663. There’s no difference in a lot of people’s minds between good musicians and popular musicians. – Dweezil Zappa

179664. There are so many things that are misunderstood or not recognized about my father’s music because they’ve been filtered by people who work for magazines like Rolling Stone. – Dweezil Zappa

179665. Well, Steve Vai joined my dad’s band right around the time when I actually started playing guitar. So he gave me a couple of lessons on fundamentals, and gave me some scales and practice things to work on. But I pretty much learned everything by ear. – Dweezil Zappa

179666. Just because something has tubes doesn’t mean it’s the best. I mean, tubes are obviously good, but the circuit of this thing is designed well and it sounds good. – Dweezil Zappa

179667. I know my name gets used illegally all the time all over the internet. You know, it is a trademarked name, so it will be something that we always have to deal with. I never needed to change it. It was always fine with me. It is a strange name; that’s for sure. – Dweezil Zappa

179668. About the only thing that I’ll probably end up doing is I made this amplifier with Peavey. It’s in the manufacturing stages right now, and there are a lot of orders that we just got for it. – Dweezil Zappa

179669. And, you know, my dad would show me some things sometimes, but the best things that I got to do were to actually see really good players play up close. That gives you an idea of fingering and technique and what not. – Dweezil Zappa

179670. The music that is played on the radio all the time or written about in magazines has nothing to do with musicianship. – Dweezil Zappa

179672. I really want younger audience members to see kids in their early 20’s playing Frank’s music and to be inspired to take things to a higher level themselves. – Dweezil Zappa

179673. I mean, no offense, but I don’t really see why, like guitar players from Creed, or something like that, are on the cover of guitar magazines. Almost anybody can sit down and learn to play those songs. – Dweezil Zappa

179674. But the reality is when you write a song, you should be able to strip away all the instruments and just have a song right there with an acoustic guitar and a voice, and the song should be good. – Dweezil Zappa

179675. It was spontaneously composed as I was playing it. And then I added a couple of other overdub textures on top of it after the fact. But it’s one of those things where I wouldn’t be able to sit down and specifically write that. That’s just what came out. – Dweezil Zappa

179676. For me, the most difficult thing is that I am learning melodies on guitar from some songs whose melodies were not meant to be played on guitar. Ever. They were intended mostly for keyboards or melodic percussion. – Dweezil Zappa

179677. Frank’s bands could play the hardest stuff and make it seem like no big deal. – Dweezil Zappa

179678. Some scientists claim that hydrogen, because it is so plentiful, is the basic building block of the universe. I dispute that. I say there is more stupidity than hydrogen, and that is the basic building block of the universe. – Frank Zappa

179834. Happiness is perfume, you can’t pour it on somebody else without getting a few drops on yourself. – James Van Der Zee

179835. In the absence of a magnetic field the period of all these oscillations is the same. But as soon as the electron is exposed to the effect of a magnetic field, its motion changes. – Pieter Zeeman

179836. We studied the light source in the direction of the magnetic force, we perforated the poles of the magnet; but even in the direction of the magnetic lines of force we found that our result was confirmed. – Pieter Zeeman

179837. According to well-known electrodynamic laws, an electron moving in a magnetic field is acted upon by a force which runs perpendicular to the direction of motion of the electron and to the direction of the magnetic field, and whose magnitude is easily determined. – Pieter Zeeman

179838. Had we really succeeded therefore in altering the period of vibration, which Maxwell, as I have just noted, held to be impossible? Or was there some disturbing circumstances from one or more factors which distorted the result? – Pieter Zeeman

179839. I count myself fortunate to be able to contribute to this work; and the great interest which the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences has shown in my work and the recognition that it has paid to my past successes, convince me that I am not on the wrong track. – Pieter Zeeman

179840. I should point out, however, that at first some difficulty was experienced in observing the phenomena predicted by the theory, owing to the extreme smallness of the variations in the period of oscillation. – Pieter Zeeman

179841. It was not simply out of a spirit of contradiction that I exposed a light source to magnetic forces. The idea came to me during an investigation of the effect discovered by Kerr on light reflected by magnetic mirrors. – Pieter Zeeman

179842. Nature gives us all, including Prof. Lorentz, surprises. It was very quickly found that there are many exceptions to the rule of splitting of the lines only into triplets. – Pieter Zeeman

179843. Moreover, photography has made it possible to fix these images and now provides us with a permanent record of each observed spectrum, which can be measured out at any time. – Pieter Zeeman

179844. Now all oscillatory movements of such an electron can be conceived of as being split up into force, and two circular oscillations perpendicular to this direction rotating in opposite directions. – Pieter Zeeman

179845. Now if this electron is displaced from its equilibrium position, a force that is directly proportional to the displacement restores it like a pendulum to its position of rest. – Pieter Zeeman

179846. On the basis of Lorentz’s theory, if we limit ourselves to a single spectral line, it suffices to assume that each atom (or molecule) contains a single moving electron. – Pieter Zeeman

179847. The magnetic cleavage of the spectral lines is dependent on the size of the charge of the electron, or, more accurately, on the ratio between the mass and the charge of the electron. – Pieter Zeeman

179848. The rotation of the polarization plane is extraordinarily small in all gases, thus also in sodium vapour. – Pieter Zeeman

179849. I have always believed that opera is a planet where the muses work together, join hands and celebrate all the arts. – Franco Zeffirelli

179850. I remember the great atmosphere and the great stadium. – Carl Zeiss

179851. It was in the Seventies but I still recall what was a good night for my club. Of course, the stadium has changed now but I have heard that the atmosphere is still the same. – Carl Zeiss

179852. While I had often said that I wanted to die in bed, what I really meant was that in my old age I wanted to be stepped on by an elephant while making love. – Roger Zelazny

179853. I try to sit down at the typewriter four times a day, even if it’s only five minutes, and write three sentences. – Roger Zelazny

179854. I enjoy slaughtering beasts, and I think of my relatives constantly. – Roger Zelazny

179855. When you are about to die, a wombat is better than no company at all. – Roger Zelazny

179856. It is a pain in the ass waiting around for someone to try to kill you. – Roger Zelazny

179857. As a designer, the mission with which we have been charged is simple: providing space at the right cost. – Harry von Zell

179858. Radio is the most intimate and socially personal medium in the world. – Harry von Zell

179859. I still feel like I’ve crashed the party. – Renee Zellweger

179860. Once you’ve reached the point where you can pay rent, you can go to the vet and you can go to the grocery store, after that point it’s all the same. I don’t have the appetite for a decadent lifestyle. – Renee Zellweger

179861. I remember just lying in the grass, staring at the clouds, wondering where they drifted off to after they floated over Texas. I never would have imagined that one day I would follow one of those clouds and find myself in Hollywood. – Renee Zellweger

179862. I believe in love, but I don’t sit around waiting for it. I buy houses. – Renee Zellweger

179863. Deep down, I’m a Texas girl looking for that big romance every girl dreams about. Biologically, I look forward to being a cornerstone of a family. I’ll be in my glory when I have a child on my knee. – Renee Zellweger

179864. Being horrible in a big film is a quicker nosedive than doing an obscure film and making no money. – Renee Zellweger

179865. Throughout our courtship, Kenny told me that he had proof that Saddam Hussein was a threat because he possessed weapons of mass destruction. I told him, ‘You had me at weapons.’ – Renee Zellweger

179866. No matter how many obstacles that are thrown in our path, there are ways to except them and to live through them. – Robert Zemeckis

179867. Understand life’s mysteries – as mysteries to be lived. – Robert Zemeckis

179868. Talk politics, talk about study and talk positively. – Jiang Zemin

179869. The theory of relativity worked out by Mr. Einstein, which is in the domain of natural science, I believe can also be applied to the political field. Both democracy and human rights are relative concepts – and not absolute and general. – Jiang Zemin

179870. It takes two hands to clap. – Jiang Zemin

179871. Working with plants, trees, fences and walls, if they practice sincerely they will attain enlightenment. – Dogen Zenji

179872. Another differentiator is that Skype is free and simple to set up, and it costs us virtually nothing for a new user to join the Skype network, which is why we can offer the service for free. – Niklas Zennstrom

179873. In fact, we just surpassed our first 1 million simultaneous users online. – Niklas Zennstrom

179874. If you can use a Web browser, you can use Skype. – Niklas Zennstrom

179875. And the VCR did the same thing: the movie industry thought nobody would ever watch movies any more. – Niklas Zennstrom

179876. We also have a conference call feature where up to five people can talk on one Skype call. – Niklas Zennstrom

179877. If you could utilize the resources of the end users’ computers, you could do things much more efficiently. – Niklas Zennstrom

179878. Skype is easy enough to use so that people don’t need to be tech savvy – a lot of users just want to communicate with their friends and family, and they find this is the easiest, cheapest way. – Niklas Zennstrom

179879. Skype is for any individual who has a broadband Internet connection. – Niklas Zennstrom

179880. People need to access Skype wirelessly, no matter where they are, and what happens is that we’ll be taking advantage of the rollout of Internet everywhere – WiFi and WiMax in particular. – Niklas Zennstrom

179881. The telephone is a 100-year-old technology. It’s time for a change. Charging for phone calls is something you did last century. – Niklas Zennstrom

179882. Then people started using it more and more and it became the most downloaded software on the internet. – Niklas Zennstrom

179883. We have 2 million users in the U.S. and about 13 million worldwide in more than 200 countries. – Niklas Zennstrom

179884. We have just started, and if you compare the number of people using Skype to the number using a telephone network around the world, we’re still just starting. – Niklas Zennstrom

179885. What we are doing is taking advantage of the broadband Internet to provide basically unlimited free calls to anyone at a higher voice quality than they can with the phone lines. – Niklas Zennstrom

179886. When radio stations started playing music the record companies started suing radio stations. They thought now that people could listen to music for free, who would want to buy a record in a record shop? But I think we all agree that radio stations are good stuff. – Niklas Zennstrom

179887. With our work at Kazaa, we began seeing growing broadband connections and more powerful computers and more streaming multimedia, and we saw that the traditional way of communicating by phone no longer made a lot of sense. – Niklas Zennstrom

179888. It is very similar to companies like Google and other internet companies. When you go and search on Google you don’t pay for that. But sometimes you click on an advert and Google makes money on that. – Niklas Zennstrom

179889. They also can combine voice with instant messaging and online file sharing. – Niklas Zennstrom

179890. Fate is the endless chain of causation, whereby things are; the reason or formula by which the world goes on. – Citium Zeno

179891. No evil is honorable: but death is honorable; therefore death is not evil. – Citium Zeno

179892. Wellbeing is attained by little and little, and nevertheless is no little thing itself. – Citium Zeno

179893. After Zorro, people spoke Spanish to me for ages. I’m Welsh but that movie instantly gave me a new ethnicity. – Catherine Zeta-Jones

179894. I love my lawyer. I have to say that of course! – Catherine Zeta-Jones

179895. I like women who look like women. I hated grunge. No one’s more feminist than me, but you don’t have to look as if you don’t give a – you know. You can be smart, bright, and attractive aesthetically to others – and to yourself. – Catherine Zeta-Jones

179896. I like to feel sexy. I know my husband thinks I’m sexy. I think he is too. But I don’t go out half-naked with ‘sex’ written across my back. – Catherine Zeta-Jones

179897. I do think I’m lucky I met Michael. Not just Michael Douglas the actor and producer with two Oscars on the shelf, but Michael Douglas, the love of my life. I really do think it was meant to happen. – Catherine Zeta-Jones

179898. For marriage to be a success, every woman and every man should have her and his own bathroom. The end. – Catherine Zeta-Jones

179899. I think, especially in our business we meet a lot of people, and sometimes you spend so much time being nice to strangers, and so, you know, keeping a clear head and just being nice to each other. And that’s all the advice I can give. – Catherine Zeta-Jones

179900. All of a sudden I had a baby, because it went really quick. It was like, ‘Oh! I have a baby!’ So, it’s great. I’m just having a great time with my children. They’re here in New York with me. – Catherine Zeta-Jones

179901. I’m intimidated every day I go on the stage and everyday I go on a movie set. It’s terrifying and I always want to reshoot the first day or the first week, I’m so terrified. – Catherine Zeta-Jones

179902. Everyone knows we get paid a lot of money, so why pretend otherwise? – Catherine Zeta-Jones

179903. I used to go around looking as frumpy as possible because it was inconceivable you could be attractive as well as be smart. It wasn’t until I started being myself, the way I like to turn out to meet people that I started to get any work. – Catherine Zeta-Jones

179904. I was like any new bride, who said, ‘I’m going to cook for my man.’ In fact, once I started a small kitchen fire in a pan. Smoke was pouring from the pan, and I got really scared. Right next to our stove is a small fire extinguisher. You know, easy access. – Catherine Zeta-Jones

179905. I’d love to do a show in Vegas with drag queens. The tackier the better. – Catherine Zeta-Jones

179906. In Hollywood everything is so documented. If you go for a drink with somebody, it’s passed around the world so quickly. – Catherine Zeta-Jones

179907. In Wales it’s brilliant. I go to the pub and see everybody who I went to school with. And everybody goes ‘So what you doing now?’ And I go, ‘Oh, I’m doing a film with Antonio Banderas and Anthony Hopkins.’ And they go, ‘Ooh, good.’ And that’s it. – Catherine Zeta-Jones

179908. There are a lot of women who live with pot-bellied pigs. – Catherine Zeta-Jones

179909. To make it more familiar to me, I ended up treating my swordplay scenes like choreography. So it was, ‘One and two and three and four and five, and turn and step and down and up and lunge.’ – Catherine Zeta-Jones

179910. When I first met Sean Connery he was as charming and wonderful as I first anticipated. I left Rome thinking: even if I don’t do this, at least I have had a day with Sean. – Catherine Zeta-Jones

179911. Words impress me. If a man can speak eloquently and beautifully to me, I just melt on the floor. – Catherine Zeta-Jones

179912. Yes, I was in love with my husband at first sight and still am. We have the most solid relationship. – Catherine Zeta-Jones

179913. I wish I was born in that era: dancing with Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly, going to work at the studio dressed in beautiful pants, head scarves, and sunglasses. – Catherine Zeta-Jones

179914. We are not making this demand for the sake of a principle, but in the interests of the proletarian class. – Clara Zetkin

179915. The workers have nothing to gain from this war, but they stand to lose everything that is dear to them. – Clara Zetkin

179916. Bourgeois society is not fundamentally opposed to the bourgeois women’s movement, which is proven by the fact that in various states reforms of private and public laws concerning women have been initiated. – Clara Zetkin

179917. Each reform, therefore, improving the economical and political situation of the workers proves to be an arm that increases the energy with which the proletarian struggle of classes is fought. – Clara Zetkin

179918. For reforms ameliorate the situation of the working class, they lighten the weight of the chains labour is burdened with by capitalism, but they are not sufficient to crush capitalism and to emancipate the workers from their tyranny. – Clara Zetkin

179919. In individual industries where female labour pays an important role, any movement advocating better wages, shorter working hours, etc., would not be doomed from the start because of the attitude of those women workers who are not organized. – Clara Zetkin

179920. Social Democratic and trade union organs have approved of the illegal invasion of Belgium, of the massacre of suspected guerrillas, as well as their wives and children, as well as the destruction of their homes in various towns and districts. – Clara Zetkin

179921. The capitalists speculate on the two following factors: the female worker must be paid as poorly as possible and the competition of female labour must be employed to lower the wages of male workers as much as possible. – Clara Zetkin

179922. The machines, the modern mode of production, slowly undermined domestic production and not just for thousands but for millions of women the question arose: Where do we now find our livelihood? – Clara Zetkin

179923. What made women’s labour particularly attractive to the capitalists was not only its lower price but also the greater submissiveness of women. – Clara Zetkin

179924. The proletarian woman fights hand in hand with the man of her class against capitalist society. – Clara Zetkin

179925. Women’s propaganda must touch upon all those questions which are of great importance to the general proletarian movement. The main task is, indeed, to awaken the women’s class consciousness and to incorporate them into the class struggle. – Clara Zetkin

179926. These interests of the workers, as the exploited and oppressed, class of society, are the same in all countries. – Clara Zetkin

179927. We would, however, perform an injustice to the bourgeois women’s rights movement if we would regard it as solely motivated by economics. No, this movement also contains a more profound spiritual and moral aspect. – Clara Zetkin

179928. What practical conclusions may we now draw for our propaganda work among women? The task of this Party Congress must not be to issue detailed practical suggestions, but to draw up general directions for the proletarian women’s movement. – Clara Zetkin

179929. When a battle for suffrage is conducted, it should only be conducted according to socialist principles, and therefore with the demand of universal suffrage for women and men. – Clara Zetkin

179930. When the men are silent, it is our duty to raise our voices in behalf of our ideals. – Clara Zetkin

179931. When the men kill, it is up to us women to fight for the preservation of life. – Clara Zetkin

179932. The most disastrous phenomenon of the current situation is the factor that imperialism is employing for its own ends all the powers of the proletariat, all of its institutions and weapons, which its fighting vanguard has created for its war of liberation. – Clara Zetkin

179933. Fortunately, many people also enjoy a stand-alone as a sample of something new, like trying the special at a favourite restaurant one night instead of going for the usual. – Sarah Zettel

179934. I suppose if I was to have to pick a few, Ursula LeGuin would have to top the list. It was while reading her work that I decided I wanted to be an author. – Sarah Zettel

179935. Actually, after while, finding the ideas is the easy part. Sorting them through and turning them into stories, now, that’s the hard work. – Sarah Zettel

179936. All of this got me thinking about the history of the westward expansion, and got me to wondering how the exploration of the Solar System would be changed if there were an indigenous presence out there. – Sarah Zettel

179937. Becoming a mother cannot help but change things. An author’s life is reflected in their writing, whether they want it to be or not, and parenthood is one of the biggest life changes there is. – Sarah Zettel

179938. Fantasy is, of course, booming, and I think it’s beginning to stretch its range as well. – Sarah Zettel

179939. First and foremost, The Quiet Invasion is a first contact story. What would we do if we actually found evidence of alien life out there? It’s also about politics. – Sarah Zettel

179940. I describe my plots as follows; A character is walking down the street when all of a sudden a piano falls on them. They spend the rest of the story digging out from under that piano. How they dig, how long and how well, this all depends entirely on the character. – Sarah Zettel

179941. I feel SF is going through an experimental phase right now. – Sarah Zettel

179942. I graduated from the University of Michigan with a BA in Communications and left formal education behind. – Sarah Zettel

179943. I have a better internal and intuitive understanding of folklore and myth than science and technology, so in that way fantasy is easier. – Sarah Zettel

179944. I did not want to write a story about the invasion of Earth, so I had to create a race capable of living nearby, which meant to either on the Moon, on Mars, or on Venus. I picked Venus. – Sarah Zettel

179945. I myself was born in Sacramento, California in 1966. – Sarah Zettel

179946. When I’m not at the keyboard, I’m generally reading, practicing tai chi or middle eastern dance, or cooking. – Sarah Zettel

179947. I think people enjoy a series. When you like a story, many readers want more of the same, which is dandy, if the author and the characters have more to say. – Sarah Zettel

179948. I’m mostly a novelist these days, but I have written short stories in Fantasy, Science Fiction and horror. – Sarah Zettel

179949. If I get blocked, it is generally because I don’t know enough about some aspect of the story or the characters. The answer for this is generally more research, or making more background notes, so the place and person can be more fully realized inside my own mind. – Sarah Zettel

179950. My joking answer to this question is that I leave a bowl of milk out on the back porch every night for the Idea Fairy. In the morning, the milk is gone and there’s a brand-new shiny idea by the bowl. – Sarah Zettel

179951. Now, of course, the great thing about the solar system as a frontier is that there are no Indians, so you can have all the glory of the myth of the American westward expansion without any of the guilt. – Sarah Zettel

179952. Now, Venus is an extremely hostile environment, and as such presents a lot of challenges for a science fiction author who wants to create life there. However, as I began to research it more thoroughly, I found myself intrigued by the possibilities the world offers. – Sarah Zettel

179953. Octavia Butler, of course, is brilliant and disturbing. – Sarah Zettel

179954. So, one of the things I was doing with the aliens in The Quiet Invasion was creating that advanced society which had ideas about morality and proper use of natural resources that were radically different from ours, as the Europeans were from the American Indians. – Sarah Zettel

179955. The Lord of the Rings movie set an entirely new standard for fantasy in the movies. – Sarah Zettel

179956. Then, I realized that there is an indigenous presence in the Solar System. It’s us. So, then, I got to wondering what would happen if a more technologically advanced society moved next door to us, the way we moved next door to the American Indians. – Sarah Zettel

179957. When I was in college, I spent a summer working in London. I’d enjoyed tea before that, but then I got actual, really good tea there and never looked back. – Sarah Zettel

179958. I have to do more close research and fact checking for the science fiction. This is not however to say that writing good fantasy does not involve doing good research. – Sarah Zettel

179959. My father was a boxer, though. So, I have a particular interest in Ray Mancini, I think. – Warren Zevon

179960. I don’t learn so good, no matter how good the teacher is. – Warren Zevon

179961. Well, I don’t think it ever did, but in the early ’60s I got interested in folk music. – Warren Zevon

179962. Well, I was interested in playing the piano from as early as I can remember. – Warren Zevon

179963. Yeah, I don’t like, um, I’m not interested in rock ‘n’ roll piano. I find it a little grating. – Warren Zevon

179964. You had to go to a different part of town from where I was to get Muddy Waters singles. I had him on singles. – Warren Zevon

179965. My memory is not even what most people’s is, much less what it oughta be for a discussion like this. – Warren Zevon

179966. But I can’t say that I didn’t like John Hammond’s performances often better than the originals. – Warren Zevon

179967. I don’t like piano solos. – Warren Zevon

179968. That’s my only active wish. I think if I sang like Don Henley, this would be a lot more agreeable business. – Warren Zevon

179969. Glenn Gould was my hero. Glenn Gould was my idol. I loved him. – Warren Zevon

179970. Everywhere I go, I have my little Steinberger, and I like it very well. – Warren Zevon

179971. I loved Hendrix. I mean, really, really loved him. As if he were one of the great classical composers. And he was. That’s how I saw him. – Warren Zevon

179972. Dylan doesn’t have to make Blonde On Blonde every time. – Warren Zevon

179973. Duncan Aldrich has been my partner in most recording projects, and touring projects, for the past decade. – Warren Zevon

179974. But there’s a thin line between songwriting and arranging. – Warren Zevon

179975. I had a good guitar, and I was a young, young kid. – Warren Zevon

179976. Mutineer is the first album of mine without a demo stage. – Warren Zevon

179977. I mean, I haven’t been completely lacking in some enjoyment of Chuck Berry or Buddy Holly. But I just didn’t pay attention to that period of music, obviously. – Warren Zevon

179978. I missed jazz, kind of. And by the time I came to it in life, it was too intimidating to enjoy thoroughly. – Warren Zevon

179979. I played a lot of real normal, straight sessions. – Warren Zevon

179980. I remember certain lines and whose they are. – Warren Zevon

179981. I wish I sang better. – Warren Zevon

179982. I’ll sleep when I’m dead. – Warren Zevon

179983. Well, first of all, let me say that I might have made a tactical error in not going to a physician for 20 years. It was one of those phobias that really didn’t pay off. – Warren Zevon

179984. It took me 10 years to realize that I don’t know ’em, 10 years to realize that it’s possible to learn them, then another 10 years to learn how to do things. – Warren Zevon

179985. The primary one being, like I said, I don’t like rock ‘n’ roll piano. – Warren Zevon

179986. I have no guitar technique. – Warren Zevon

179987. My first album is like a terrible John Hammond album, with drums. – Warren Zevon

179988. Piano is like drudgery. – Warren Zevon

179989. Recording at home enables one to eliminate the demo stage, and the presentation stage in the studio, too. – Warren Zevon

179990. So I guess I had, I think they tell me I had, about three years total of piano lessons, off and on. – Warren Zevon

179991. Dylan can do no wrong. – Warren Zevon

179992. I’m not a big jazz fan. – Warren Zevon

179993. Enjoy every sandwich. – Warren Zevon

179994. And I think it’s safe to say that the single very impressive figure to me was Merle Haggard. – Warren Zevon

179995. It’s not that I wanted to be an actor; it’s that I didn’t want to be a dancer! I was trained in traditional Chinese dance, and after working so hard it seemed unfair to just disappear into a group. – Ziyi Zhang

179996. Whatever you see – any good results – are all from the pressure. – Ziyi Zhang

179997. I wanted to become a kindergarten teacher like my mother. – Ziyi Zhang

179998. My parents sent me to a dance class, so it was a road chosen by them, not me. But I enjoyed it so much I knew I would become a performer. – Ziyi Zhang

179999. China’s cinema has been rising for some time; it has more exposure, so my chances of becoming internationally known are better. But the first thing I have to do is learn English. If I can grasp the language, then perhaps I can think about the U.S. – Ziyi Zhang

180000. I knew nothing about martial arts. And I don’t really like it! But in the film, I not only had to pretend that I knew all about it, I had to be the best at it. That was very difficult. – Ziyi Zhang
