26903. A dog barks when his master is attacked. I would be a coward if I saw that God’s truth is attacked and yet would remain silent. – John Calvin

26904. For each of us who appear to have had a successful experiment there are many to whom their own experiments seem barren and negative. – Melvin Calvin

26905. To express to you in mere words, our personal feelings on this occasion you must know to be impossible, and particularly so for one who normally has to describe only things outside himself. – Melvin Calvin

26906. If I may take the liberty to speak for science at least, today his name and his prizes are without a peer in the world. He not only elevates science but he influences it as well. – Melvin Calvin

26907. In love, as in gluttony, pleasure is a matter of the utmost precision. – Italo Calvino

26908. It is not the voice that commands the story: it is the ear. – Italo Calvino

26909. The catalogue of forms is endless: until every shape has found its city, new cities will continue to be born. When the forms exhaust their variety and come apart, the end of cities begins. – Italo Calvino

26910. The human race is a zone of living things that should be defined by tracing its confines. – Italo Calvino

26911. A classic is a book that has never finished saying what it has to say. – Italo Calvino

26912. Biographical data, even those recorded in the public registers, are the most private things one has, and to declare them openly is rather like facing a psychoanalyst. – Italo Calvino

26913. The satirist is prevented by repulsion from gaining a better knowledge of the world he is attracted to, yet he is forced by attraction to concern himself with the world that repels him. – Italo Calvino

26914. Traveling, you realize that differences are lost: each city takes to resembling all cities, places exchange their form, order, distances, a shapeless dust cloud invades the continents. – Italo Calvino

26915. The more enlightened our houses are, the more their walls ooze ghosts. – Italo Calvino

26916. What Romantic terminology called genius or talent or inspiration is nothing other than finding the right road empirically, following one’s nose, taking shortcuts. – Italo Calvino

26917. It is better to be defeated on principle than to win on lies. – Arthur Calwell

26918. That is really not much different from the search engines that are being constructed today for users throughout the entire world to allow them to search through databases to access the information that they require. – Stephen Cambone

26919. And the reason for focusing on that time frame is that it’s going to take us a considerable period of time to develop the new capabilities, processes and organizations that will be needed. – Stephen Cambone

26920. And then fourth, we have that essential group of people who track programs and budgets to ensure that they align with the needs of preparation and warning, counterintelligence and support to the operational war fighter. – Stephen Cambone

26921. And to do that not only for the war fighter, but also to help prepare the people in the acquisition, personnel and policy worlds who need to make adjustments in the department’s business, which itself may take 10 or 15 years to accomplish. – Stephen Cambone

26922. But by providing the background picture – the universal situational awareness that we desire – by showing the anomalies, the Space-Based Radar will change the nature of how we do our analysis and our intelligence. – Stephen Cambone

26923. In other words, by finding the anomalous event, what you do is you get out ahead of activities. – Stephen Cambone

26924. It’s easy to measure success by the number of dollars spent or by the number of programs initiated, without having too much regard for what was bought and how useful it was to the people who need it – the war fighter and the analyst. – Stephen Cambone

26925. One is to ensure that the war fighters and the intelligence analysts get the information that they need when they need it, in a format that’s useful to them. – Stephen Cambone

26926. Our focus is on outputs rather than inputs. – Stephen Cambone

26927. When you live in a networked environment, it’s possible to separate data from applications. – Stephen Cambone

26928. Over the course of two years, we arrived at a point where we began to look at the value added by making information more easily accessible across the intelligence community, both defense and national. – Stephen Cambone

26929. Where we have the choice between putting a dollar against those that are going to advance horizontal integration and those that are going to sustain current capability, we’d rather put them against the horizontal integration activity. – Stephen Cambone

26930. So we have a group within the office that is devoted to support for the war fighter. That’s, of necessity, an operational and tactical level of concern. – Stephen Cambone

26931. We’ve complemented that with a second office to think about how we need to prepare ourselves for that period 10 or 15 or 20 years from now, by way of investment in our technology, our organization and our people. – Stephen Cambone

26932. We have been working hard to think about what our combined needs are going to be in the way of intelligence capabilities, not today but 15 to 20 years in the future. – Stephen Cambone

26933. Thirdly, as we move through this process of integrating the communications, we will begin to emulate more of the World Wide Web in our work in the future. – Stephen Cambone

26934. The users are not going to be in the position of accepting what’s been collected; they’re going to be in the position of being able to demand collection. – Stephen Cambone

26935. The third group is focused on counterintelligence and security. I think the reason for that is fairly evident, in terms of vulnerabilities of the department and the harm that can come to it by failing to detect when we have, in fact, been harmed. – Stephen Cambone

26936. The office has oversight of people who do analysis and oversight of people who do operations, but it is not charged with doing either. That is an important point to make. Those functions are performed by the CIA, DIA and other agencies. – Stephen Cambone

26937. That’s driven by any number of factors, the most prominent of which have been the combat experience of two major campaigns – one in Afghanistan and the other in Iraq – and the ongoing demands of the global war on terrorism. – Stephen Cambone

26944. Not addicted to gluttony or drunkenness, this people who incur no expense in food or dress, and whose minds are always bent upon the defence of their country, and on the means of plunder, are wholly employed in the care of their horses and furniture. – Giraldus Cambrensis

26945. Evil borders upon good, and vices are confounded with virtues; as the report of good qualities is delightful to a well-disposed mind, so the relation of the contrary should not be offensive. – Giraldus Cambrensis

26947. Happy and fortunate indeed would this nation be, nay, completely blessed, if it had good prelates and pastors, and but one prince, and that prince a good one. – Giraldus Cambrensis

26948. From these inconsiderable attempts, some idea may be formed with what success, should Fortune afford an opportunity, I am likely to treat matters of greater importance. – Giraldus Cambrensis

26964. The Green Party represents that majority point of view within the U.S. – Peter Camejo

26980. We cannot go on as we are with 2.6 million people on incapacity benefit, 500,000 of them are under 35. Are we really saying there are half a million people in this country under 35 who are simply too ill to work? I don’t think that’s right. – David Cameron

26981. On the one hand we have got to ask, are there some areas of universal benefits that are no longer affordable? But on the other hand let us look at the issue of dependency where we have trapped people in poverty through the extent of welfare that they have. – David Cameron

26986. I mean, I’m a conservative. I believe that, you know, if you borrow too much, you just build up debts for your children to pay off. You put pressure on interest rates.
