20203. That taught me one lesson which is that you’re naive to believe that bands can change the world. Bands are very naive to think that just if their audience thinks that they can change the world, that they can. That was quite a lesson for my career, really. – Billy Bragg

20215. With a firm and steadfast mind one should hold under all conditions, that everywhere the earth is below and the sky above, and to the energetic man, every region is his fatherland. – Tycho Brahe

20225. In the globalized world that is ours, maybe we are moving towards a global village, but that global village brings in a lot of different people, a lot of different ideas, lots of different backgrounds, lots of different aspirations. – Lakhdar Brahimi

20226. In Rwanda that genocide happened because the international community and the Security Council refused to give, again, another 5000 troops which would have cost, I don’t know, maybe fifty, a hundred, million dollars. – Lakhdar Brahimi

20227. If you are talking about terrorism, you need to sit down and understand what is making these people put dynamite around their waists and blow themselves up. – Lakhdar Brahimi

20228. However, it does seem now that the international community, more importantly the powers that have influence, and, even more importantly, Afghanistan’s neighbors realize that it is high time that they work together, and not against one another. – Lakhdar Brahimi

20229. The third point is that for some time the UN has been talking about helping Afghanistan in the reconstruction of the country but there has never been any real commitment by the international community to provide resources for that. – Lakhdar Brahimi

20230. But you are absolutely right that when the international community decides to help in a meaningful manner a country like Afghanistan, then coordination between the various actors that are involved in these processes is very, very difficult indeed. – Lakhdar Brahimi

20231. But I knew that what had happened was an eye-opener not only to the United States but also to Pakistan, who realized that after what has happened on the 11th of September, it was simply impossible to continue to play those games in Afghanistan. – Lakhdar Brahimi

20232. Be modest, be respectful of others, try to understand. – Lakhdar Brahimi

20233. At times one feels that what is being said in the West is that the fact that you are a Muslim predisposes you to this blind, stupid terrorism. – Lakhdar Brahimi

20234. Afghanistan is a land-locked country. – Lakhdar Brahimi

20235. A fly cannot go in unless it stops somewhere; therefore weapons, fuel, food, money will not go to Afghanistan unless the neighbors of Afghanistan are working, are cooperating, either being themselves the origin or the transit. – Lakhdar Brahimi

20236. You are dealing with people who have taken the responsibility of killing their own because they think that they are right, they think that they are serving the interests of their people. They not going to give that up easily, just because you’ve shown up. – Lakhdar Brahimi

20237. When you go from one place to another, you go with experience, you don’t go with prescriptions. – Lakhdar Brahimi

20238. To leave Afghanistan as a playground for terrorists and adventurers was simply not possible anymore. – Lakhdar Brahimi

20239. What again I tell my people is that no matter how much you know, it’s never enough. You will always discover, after the fact, that you’ve missed something. – Lakhdar Brahimi

20240. Of course the UN brings in a lot of moral authority. – Lakhdar Brahimi

20241. There is an expression now that is commonly used about these so-called internal conflicts which are not really internal, because they have connections to the outside world. – Lakhdar Brahimi

20242. I think a failed state is the responsibility of the people who have made that state fail, and those are generally the people of that country. – Lakhdar Brahimi

20243. There is a firm, clear commitment to provide resources and ideas to enable us to organize the Afghans towards starting the process of rehabilitation and reconstruction. – Lakhdar Brahimi

20244. There is a story which is not being told strongly enough of the Afghan employees of the UN inside the country who are saving hundreds of thousands of lives everyday by their bravery and nobody talks of them. – Lakhdar Brahimi

20254. I sometimes ponder on variation form and it seems to me it ought to be more restrained, purer. – Johannes Brahms

20284. The capacity to be intrinsic and vulgar is American. – Stan Brakhage

20295. If it’s good art, it’s good. – Kenneth Branagh

20296. I think the best actors are the most generous, the kindest, the greatest people and at their worst they are vain, greedy and insecure. – Kenneth Branagh

20297. I think A Midsummer Night’s Dream would be terrific because of the transformations that occur. Or The Tempest, things like that. Extraordinary larger than life or supernatural element. – Kenneth Branagh

20298. I only really cast people who are desperate to be in it – who were dying to be in it, whose talent I believed in and were dead ready to do the work that was necessary. – Kenneth Branagh

20299. Friendship is one of the most tangible things in a world which offers fewer and fewer supports. – Kenneth Branagh

20300. I don’t think Hamlet is mad, nor is he predisposed to be a gloomy or tragic figure. – Kenneth Branagh

20301. My definition of success is control. – Kenneth Branagh

20302. I don’t know that there is too far, actually. I think there’s only too bad. If it’s bad you’ve gone too far. – Kenneth Branagh

20303. Actors are the best and the worst of people. They’re like kids. When they’re good, they’re very very good. When they’re bad they’re very very naughty. – Kenneth Branagh

20304. I do think that, for instance, we’ve been very lucky to have theatrical careers and be associated with Shakespeare which sometimes gives you a kind of bogus kudos. – Kenneth Branagh

20305. I did not make this a long film for its own sake. I wanted to make an entertaining film and offer it out there for those who want to see it. If word of mouth suggests there is an audience out there, hopefully their cinema will show it. – Kenneth Branagh

20306. I like to cast actors I admire, one’s that are talented. Each one will bring something new to the part. This play has been done thousands of times and now certain characters are too familiar. – Kenneth Branagh

20307. The elasticity of Shakespeare is extraordinary. – Kenneth Branagh

20308. We’re self obsessed and mad and stupid – not that other people can’t be the same way – but the extremes are kind of honest in some mad way. Anyway, I like them. – Kenneth Branagh

20309. There is some mysterious thing that goes on whereby, in the process of playing Shakespeare continuously, actors are surprised by the way the language actually acts on them. – Kenneth Branagh

20310. The long version of the play is actually an easier version to follow. In all of the cut versions the intense speeches are cut too close together for the audience and the actors. – Kenneth Branagh

20312. The glory of 70mm is the sharpness of the image it offers. – Kenneth Branagh

20313. It’s quite hard for people to just accept that they’re very contradictory. – Kenneth Branagh

20316. One of the things that makes Hamlet unique among Shakespeare’s characters is his courage to face up to the darker elements of his personality. – Kenneth Branagh

20317. Music and language are a vital element. We, as actors and directors, offer it to people who want to experience it. Sometimes the actual meaning is less important than the words themselves. – Kenneth Branagh

20318. I certainly have been guilty of trying to sweep things under the carpet. – Kenneth Branagh

20319. I put myself into character for my songs. – Michelle Branch

20320. I would love to be in musical theater and be on Broadway. If someone were to offer me a position to do something like that, I wouldnt pass it down. Im a huge fan of musicals and I really want to do that. – Michelle Branch

20321. I think its so cool that you can pick up the guitar and create something that didn’t exist 5 minutes ago. You can write something that no ones ever heard before. You have music at your fingertips. – Michelle Branch

20322. I’m lucky because I have a job I love. I really miss being away from home, being in my own bed, seeing my animals and siblings, having my moms cookies. I have a couple cats. I got a kitten about a year ago and now Im going on the road so I wont see him for a while. I feel bad. – Michelle Branch

20323. I followed my heart and figured that if I tried and failed, at least I’d know that I tried. – Michelle Branch

20325. To see far is one thing, going there is another. – Constantin Brancusi

20326. What is real is not the external form, but the essence of things… it is impossible for anyone to express anything essentially real by imitating its exterior surface. – Constantin Brancusi

20327. When you see a fish you don’t think of its scales, do you? You think of its speed, its floating, flashing body seen through the water… If I made fins and eyes and scales, I would arrest its movement, give a pattern or shape of reality. I want just the flash of its spirit. – Constantin Brancusi

20328. Create like a god, command like a king, work like a slave. – Constantin Brancusi

20329. Don’t look for obscure formulas or mystery in my work. It is pure joy that I offer you. Look at my sculptures until you see them. Those closest to God have seen them. – Constantin Brancusi

20330. They are imbeciles who call my work abstract. That which they call abstract is the most realistic, because what is real is not the exterior but the idea, the essence of things. – Constantin Brancusi

20331. Things are not difficult to make; what is difficult is putting ourselves in the state of mind to make them. – Constantin Brancusi

20332. Simplicity is not an objective in art, but one achieves simplicity despite one’s self by entering into the real sense of things. – Constantin Brancusi

20333. There hasn’t been any art yet. Art is just beginning. – Constantin Brancusi

20334. Theories are patterns without value. What counts is action. – Constantin Brancusi

20335. I find it difficult to judge myself, but people say that I have become a bit more socially acceptable over the years in terms of my material; which apparently at the beginning – though I never really intended it to be – was man hating and now is just a bit more cuddly. – Jo Brand

20336. So, I kind of rather was hoping that people thought it would have a nice mixture of different topics and it also takes in the fact that I’ve had two children recently. – Jo Brand

20337. I don’t know really, it doesn’t feel like it has changed to me but I think to have to move with the times. Try out different areas and not get stuck in 1978. – Jo Brand

20338. I think there’s a far more general audience now because I’ve done more populist stuff on telly. – Jo Brand

20339. I don’t know if we will ever try again because those sort of things are very hard to organise but yes, I’ve known Doon for years and John as well but I hadn’t met Will before, and he turned out to be a good laugh. – Jo Brand

20340. I had always fancied a go at the comedy and when it started to go reasonably well and the opportunity arose for me to move into it full time, I just couldn’t turn it down. I just took the risk, and I just wanted to see if it would work and thankfully it did. – Jo Brand

20341. I made a supreme effort not to do that thing that parents do, which is to bore people without children to death by going on and on about how funny their children are, so there’s none of that hopefully. – Jo Brand

20342. With two small children, I haven’t had a wash since 2001 so the chance to go shopping is way down the list. It is something I do intend to get. – Jo Brand

20343. Who do I like? I am a big fan of French and Saunders – not that that they are particularly stand-up I have to say, but I think they have been great for women and they are of themselves just incredibly funny whether they are male or female. – Jo Brand

20344. What they did was to make a pilot and it may well go to series at the next festival but I don’t have any news on that. It’s already been on Paramount actually, but as it’s on Paramount it’ll probably be on several more times… hopefully. – Jo Brand

20345. The thing I thought about doing it was it’s Comic Relief and you’ve got to be funny. So although I did try to sing properly it obviously has hilarious results when you can’t sing. – Jo Brand

20346. Again, with two small children it’s incredibly hard to commit yourself to anything because you’re just getting interested in it and someone comes along and goes I want Thomas The Tank Engine on, and screams the place down until you put it on. – Jo Brand

20347. So, my style has hopefully changed over the years and it is more relaxed, and I do tend to smile and have more than one expression these days hopefully – which I didn’t at the beginning. – Jo Brand

20348. I just don’t like travelling very much. – Jo Brand

20349. I was really, because I thought it was extremely excruciating when I watched a tape of it, that my husband taped for me and I never watched it again after that. – Jo Brand

20350. By crying on my bed, drinking quite a lot and feeling tempted by drugs. Well, just not reading it to be perfectly honest with you. I know it’s a bit of a copout. – Jo Brand

20351. The reason I used a name was because I was a nurse at the time, and I didn’t want my name in Timeout and people from working coming along and taking the piss. – Jo Brand

20352. Anything is good if it’s made of chocolate. – Jo Brand

20353. People say you should read your criticism because it will make you a better person but it doesn’t. It just makes you a sad bitter old showbiz nightmare. – Jo Brand

20354. I wouldn’t say I was organised at all. I just have to prioritise. Is it more important for them to be organised, or to have their dinner, do you know what I mean? – Jo Brand

20355. Over the years I attempted to make my style a bit more relaxed ’cause the initial style you couldn’t watch for more than ten minutes without wanting to kill me. – Jo Brand

20356. I’m sure some cynical people would point to that as the main reason for doing it for a lot of people. – Jo Brand

20357. One of the guys that used to run it – for some reason I’ve no idea why he used to call me the Sea Monster and I was just looking around for a name and thought that’ll do. That lasted for a couple of years probably. – Jo Brand

20358. It’s inevitable that if you do okay on something like that you don’t just annoy people, that it will make a difference because it seemed like such a lot of people so, yes I would have to say that it has done. – Jo Brand

20359. It’s got too much hard work slapping them and telling them to shut up. – Jo Brand

20360. It’s a video release as well so I have to be perfectly honest and go, probably not specifically for DVD, but there are extra bits on it that aren’t on anything else, so as exciting as that sounds. – Jo Brand

20361. Sometimes, as a comedian, a line will come to you, that is so beautiful, so perfect, that you think: I did not create this line. This line belongs to all of us. Surely this is a line of God. – Russell Brand

20362. People have always said, are you gay? I’ve had a lot of that. But it’s just not in me. I really like women a lot; I’m repulsed by men sexually. – Russell Brand

20363. No-one really feels self-confident deep down becuase it’s an artifical idea. Really, people aren’t that worried about what you’re doing or what you’re saying, so you can drift around the world relatively anonymously: you must not feel persucted and examined. Liberate yourself from that idea that people are watching you. – Russell Brand

20364. It’s difficult to believe in yourself because the idea of self is an artificial construction. You are, in fact, part of the glorious oneness of the universe. Everything beautiful in the world is within you. – Russell Brand

20365. It would have been convenient to be gay. Just because of the grooming, the narcissism, stuff like that. But I have this kind of roaring heterosexuality. Traditional, uncomplicated heterosexuality, an almost cliched Robin Askwith thing. – Russell Brand

20366. I’ll not be changing, but America will. – Russell Brand

20367. In terms of weapons, the best disarmament tool so far is nuclear energy. We have been taking down the Russian warheads, turning it into electricity. 10 percent of American electricity comes from decommissioned warheads. – Stewart Brand

20368. Likewise, with solar, especially here in California, we’re discovering that the 80 solar farm schemes that are going forward want to basically bulldoze 1,000 sq. mi. of southern California desert. Well, as an environmentalist, we would rather that didn’t happen. – Stewart Brand

20369. Once a new technology rolls over you, if you’re not part of the steamroller, you’re part of the road. – Stewart Brand

20370. There’s no unemployment in squatter cities. Everyone works. One-sixth of humanity is there. It’s soon going to be more than that. – Stewart Brand

20371. When a fantasy turns you on, you’re obligated to God and nature to start doing it – right away. – Stewart Brand

20372. All that is necessary to break the spell of inertia and frustration is to – act as if it were impossible to fail. – Dorothea Brande

20373. Old habits are strong and jealous. – Dorothea Brande

20374. The Wright brothers flew through the smoke screen of impossibility. – Dorothea Brande

20375. There are seeds of self-destruction in all of us that will bear only unhappiness if allowed to grow. – Dorothea Brande

20378. Man’s mind is not a container to be filled but rather a fire to be kindled. – Dorthea Brande

20379. By going over your day in imagination before you begin it, you can begin acting successfully at any moment. – Dorthea Brande

20380. All that is necessary to break the spell of inertia and frustration is this: Act as if it were impossible to fail. That is the talisman, the formula, the command of right about face which turns us from failure to success. – Dorthea Brande

20381. Act boldly and unseen forces will come to your aid. – Dorthea Brande

20382. A problem clearly stated is a problem half solved. – Dorthea Brande

20383. Where there is an open mind, there will always be a frontier. – Dorthea Brande

20384. There is no great writing, only great rewriting. – Justice Brandeis

20511. Ridiculous yachts and private planes and big limousines won’t make people enjoy life more, and it sends out terrible messages to the people who work for them. It would be so much better if that money was spent in Africa – and it’s about getting a balance. – Richard Branson

20793. I pretended I was living with a television family and there was no yelling at home and no one hit me. – Arthur Bremer

20799. While it’s very hard to know exactly how to measure public opinion there, because there’s no really good polling, the fact of the matter is that in all the polls I’ve seen the vast majority of the Iraqis prefer to be free and are pleased that the coalition freed them. – Paul Bremer

20800. You know, the country is basically peaceful. – Paul Bremer

20801. We’ve thrown out Saddam and Saddam, dead or alive, is finished in Iraq. – Paul Bremer

20806. Iraq has become, for better or for worse, the front on the war on terrorism, and so we’ve got to do this, and I can understand why congressmen and senators would take their responsibility seriously, but I think in the end we’ll get the money. – Paul Bremer

20811. I think there really is no shortcut to sovereignty. – Paul Bremer

20814. I hope they’re going to learn, and as a result of our response, that it isn’t going to work. They’re not going to change our life, they’re not going to have us throw out our Constitution, and they’re not going to chase us out of the Middle East. – Paul Bremer

20817. I had an Edinburgh, middle-class childhood and a public school education. – Rory Bremner

20818. When you consider what Tony Blair was saying about liberty, human rights and that sort of thing, it would be terribly revolutionary to sell the speeches he and Jack Straw made in 1994. – Rory Bremner

20819. But let’s be clear. We’re talking about a country where there’s no opposition. As leader he can ignore Parliament and – sorry that’s Tony Blair isn’t it? Um, so he doesn’t even have to ask the country before he goes to war – sorry that’s still Tony Blair. – Rory Bremner

20820. I am just fascinated by this reassurance from a menacing figure. It is rather frightening. – Rory Bremner

20821. I’ve no idea what they make of me. People usually don’t recognise themselves in an impression. – Rory Bremner

20827. My first public impression was my French teacher, Derek Swift. – Rory Bremner

20828. Now I’m instantly nervous about the demands of doing a weekly column. – Rory Bremner

20829. Or the Department of Education and another ministry were worried about duplication of effort, so what did they do? They set up two committees to look into duplication and neither knew what the other was up to. It really is a world beyond parody. – Rory Bremner

20830. People may say that what I do is very clever, but it’s not really at all. It’s not Swift. – Rory Bremner

20831. I remember driving home one evening while they were reviewing the papers on the radio. One of the articles was about me separating from my wife. It’s a weird thing to listen to a news report about the break-up of your marriage. – Rory Bremner
