19940. I spent three days a week for 10 years educating myself in the public library, and it’s better than college. People should educate themselves – you can get a complete education for no money. At the end of 10 years, I had read every book in the library and I’d written a thousand stories. – Ray Bradbury

19941. I know you’ve heard it a thousand times before. But it’s true – hard work pays off. If you want to be good, you have to practice, practice, practice. If you don’t love something, then don’t do it. – Ray Bradbury

19942. I don’t try to describe the future. I try to prevent it. – Ray Bradbury

19959. There have been as many investigative reporters on this newspaper working on Clinton’s many problems as I can remember there were working on Watergate. – Ben Bradlee

19960. They certainly did. They tried to make her look like a “nut case” and they succeeded to some extent. – Ben Bradlee

19961. We made only one real mistake. And even then we were right. – Ben Bradlee

19962. If an investigative reporter finds out that someone has been robbing the store, that may be “gotcha” journalism, but it’s also good journalism. – Ben Bradlee

19963. They cut about seven minutes from that broadcast, but it was still vital to the story’s momentum. – Ben Bradlee

19964. The biggest difference between Kennedy and Nixon, as far as the press is concerned, is simply this: Jack Kennedy really liked newspaper people and he really enjoyed sparring with journalists. – Ben Bradlee

19965. Sure, some journalists use anonymous sources just because they’re lazy and I think editors ought to insist on more precise identification even if they remain anonymous. – Ben Bradlee

19974. Shakespeare also introduces the supernatural into some of his tragedies; he introduces ghosts, and witches who have supernatural knowledge. – Andrew Coyle Bradley

19975. When Shakespeare begins his exposition thus he generally at first makes people talk about the hero, but keeps the hero himself for some time out of sight, so that we await his entrance with curiosity, and sometimes with anxiety. – Andrew Coyle Bradley

19976. We might not object to the statement that Lear deserved to suffer for his folly, selfishness and tyranny; but to assert that he deserved to suffer what he did suffer is to do violence not merely to language but to any healthy moral sense. – Andrew Coyle Bradley

19977. We cannot arrive at Shakespeare’s whole dramatic way of looking at the world from his tragedies alone, as we can arrive at Milton’s way of regarding things, or at Wordsworth’s or at Shelley’s, by examining almost any one of their important works. – Andrew Coyle Bradley

19978. A Shakespearean tragedy as so far considered may be called a story of exceptional calamity leading to the death of a man in high estate. But it is clearly much more than this, and we have now to regard it from another side. – Andrew Coyle Bradley

19979. Shakespeare very rarely makes the least attempt to surprise by his catastrophes. They are felt to be inevitable, though the precise way in which they will be brought about is not, of course, foreseen. – Andrew Coyle Bradley

19980. Nor does the idea of a moral order asserting itself against attack or want of conformity answer in full to our feelings regarding the tragic character. – Andrew Coyle Bradley

19981. Most people, even among those who know Shakespeare well and come into real contact with his mind, are inclined to isolate and exaggerate some one aspect of the tragic fact. – Andrew Coyle Bradley

19982. Job was the greatest of all the children of the east, and his afflictions were well-nigh more than he could bear; but even if we imagined them wearing him to death, that would not make his story tragic. – Andrew Coyle Bradley

19984. In speaking, for convenience, of devices and expedients, I did not intend to imply that Shakespeare always deliberately aimed at the effects which he produced. – Andrew Coyle Bradley

19985. In Shakespearean tragedy the main source of the convulsion which produces suffering and death is never good: good contributes to this convulsion only from its tragic implication with its opposite in one and the same character. – Andrew Coyle Bradley

19986. In approaching our subject it will be best, without attempting to shorten the path by referring to famous theories of the drama, to start directly from the facts, and to collect from them gradually an idea of Shakespearean Tragedy. – Andrew Coyle Bradley

19987. But, in addition, there is, all through the tragedy, a constant alternation of rises and falls in this tension or in the emotional pitch of the work, a regular sequence of more exciting and less exciting sections. – Andrew Coyle Bradley

19988. Both Brutus and Hamlet are highly intellectual by nature and reflective by habit. Both may even be called, in a popular sense, philosophic; Brutus may be called so in a stricter sense. – Andrew Coyle Bradley

19989. King Lear alone among these plays has a distinct double action. Besides this, it is impossible, I think, from the point of view of construction, to regard the hero as the leading figure. – Andrew Coyle Bradley

19990. Shakespeare’s idea of the tragic fact is larger than this idea and goes beyond it; but it includes it, and it is worth while to observe the identity of the two in a certain point which is often ignored. – Andrew Coyle Bradley

19992. Leaders should be collaborative, modest, and generous. – Bill Bradley

19999. All I have are the people. – Bill Bradley

20000. The taste of defeat has a richness of experience all its own. – Bill Bradley
