27330. Women often postpone their lives, thinking that if they’re not with a partner then it doesn’t really count. They’re still searching for their prince, in a way. And as much as we don’t discuss that, because it’s too embarrassing and too sad, I think it really does exist. – Jane Campion

27331. Women today are dealing with both their independence and also the fact that their lives are built around finding and satisfying the romantic models we grew up with. – Jane Campion

27338. When leading evangelicals say terrible things about Islam, evil things about Islam, terrible things about Muhammad, they ought to be ashamed of themselves. – Tony Campolo

27339. Those issues are biblical issues: to care for the sick, to feed the hungry, to stand up for the oppressed. I contend that if the evangelical community became more biblical, everything would change. – Tony Campolo

27340. The two hot issues are the gay issue and the abortion issue. These are the two defining issues in the evangelical community these days. I’m sure that these hot buttons will be pushed, time and time again. – Tony Campolo

27341. The reason why I buy into the Democratic Party more than the Republican Party is because there are over 2,000 verses of Scripture that deal with responding to the needs of the poor. – Tony Campolo

27342. The real problem that I think those of us who are evangelicals and Democrats have to face up to is that the political right controls the religious media. – Tony Campolo

27343. That’s what they do in Europe. You go down to the city hall and you become legally connected. You have a civil union there. Then, if you’re religious, you go down to the church, and the church blesses the union. That gets the problem solved. – Tony Campolo

27344. So I really would like to see both parties respond to the poor with greater commitment. But I’ve got to tell you, the Democrats, I feel, are doing a better job in that respect than Republicans are. – Tony Campolo

27345. So after the Lewinsky scandal, everything changed, and we moved from using the Bible to address the moral issues of our time, which were social, to moral issues of our time that were very personal. I have continued that relationship up until the present. – Tony Campolo

27346. Of the 22 industrialized nations of the world, we’re dead last in per capita giving to poor people. – Tony Campolo

27348. If America is too arrogant, too prideful to repent, it’s not the kind of country that God wants it to be. – Tony Campolo

27349. I think there are other issues that the Democrats could use to rally evangelicals. There are a lot of us, for instance, who believe that the Bible calls us to be environmentally responsible. – Tony Campolo

27350. I think the real place where most evangelicals have trouble with the Democratic Party is on the issue of abortion. – Tony Campolo

27351. I think it goes back to the fact that the evangelical community often does not have a biblical vision of God. – Tony Campolo

27352. I teach at Eastern University, which is highly committed to doing work among the poor and the oppressed peoples of the world. We have a special commitment to the city. – Tony Campolo

27353. I don’t know of many evangelicals who want to deny gay couples their legal rights. However, most of us don’t want to call it marriage, because we think that word has religious connotations, and we’re not ready to see it used in ways that offend us. – Tony Campolo

27354. I contend the state ought to do its thing and provide legal rights for all couples who want to be joined together for life. The church should bless unions that it sees fit to bless, and they should be called marriages. – Tony Campolo

27355. I contend that, in spite of all that might be said about Watergate, Richard Nixon was good for the poor people of America. – Tony Campolo

27356. I contend that Bush would be a lot more moderate if there weren’t some fundamentalists breathing down his neck every time he wants to establish the state of Israel, every time he wants to do justice for the Palestinian people. – Tony Campolo

27357. But I think it’s up to a local congregation to determine whether or not a marriage should be blessed of God. And it shouldn’t be up to the government. – Tony Campolo

27358. But I contend that if we’re providing total medical coverage for every man, woman, and child in Iraq, shouldn’t we at least be doing the same thing for every man, woman, and child in the United States? – Tony Campolo

27359. And we’ve got to ask ourselves some very serious questions as to whether or not certain religious leaders, in terms of raising money – I hate to bring this up – are pushing hot buttons. – Tony Campolo

27360. Prior to ROE V. WADE, abortions were common even though they were illegal. I don’t think making them illegal again is going to solve the problem. – Tony Campolo

27361. I contend that it’s impossible to read the Sermon on the Mount and not come out against capital punishment. – Tony Campolo

27362. I’m a minister, and I serve as a minister in addition to being a university professor. – Tony Campolo

27363. When you were born, you cried and everybody else was happy. The only question that matters is this – when you die, will you be happy when everybody else is crying? – Tony Campolo

27364. My theology is such that the God who loves Israel and will not forsake Israel – which is why I want to see Israel have a secure nation with secure borders – also loves the Palestinians. – Tony Campolo

27365. When you talk about evangelicals, don’t forget that a significant proportion of the evangelical community is African American. And most African Americans – well over 90 percent, thoroughly evangelical, thoroughly biblical – will probably vote Democratic. – Tony Campolo

27366. Nobody realizes that some people expend tremendous energy merely to be normal. – Albert Camus

27367. Truth, like light, blinds. Falsehood, on the contrary, is a beautiful twilight that enhances every object. – Albert Camus

27370. To know oneself, one should assert oneself. – Albert Camus

27371. To insure the adoration of a theorem for any length of time, faith is not enough, a police force is needed as well. – Albert Camus

27388. Your successes and happiness are forgiven you only if you generously consent to share them. – Albert Camus

27393. Without work, all life goes rotten. But when work is soulless, life stifles and dies. – Albert Camus

27394. Virtue cannot separate itself from reality without becoming a principle of evil. – Albert Camus

27395. Without culture, and the relative freedom it implies, society, even when perfect, is but a jungle. This is why any authentic creation is a gift to the future. – Albert Camus

27401. We rarely confide in those who are better than we are. – Albert Camus

27402. We get into the habit of living before acquiring the habit of thinking. In that race which daily hastens us towards death, the body maintains its irreparable lead. – Albert Camus

27631. Salads was a big indicator of that – there was a huge market out there for it. And why not tap it? Some of the things we are doing now around the globe are responding to customers. It’s not because some guy sued you. – Jim Cantalupo

27632. So Europe’s a big driver. And at one point, if the euro hadn’t devalued, they would have been making as much money as the US with half the stores. Returns were higher. – Jim Cantalupo

27633. Some of the analysts were saying, Now you’re a cash cow, there’s no growth at all, pay it all out in dividends, give me it all, you can’t invest wisely. – Jim Cantalupo

27634. The markets where we’ve got real good presence are the older, more mature markets like Australia, and Western Europe – where we’ve only got 6,000 stores, compared to the US with 13,000. – Jim Cantalupo

27635. We cover hamburgers, chicken, veggie burgers, salads, we’ve got a pretty broad range. To me, McDonald’s isn’t only about the food. It’s about the prices, it’s about the way we eat. – Jim Cantalupo

27636. We have very specific rules about how we go to market with children, and I think they are very responsible. – Jim Cantalupo

27637. When you raise prices, you’ve got to make sure you get it to the bottom line. You can fritter it away because of the way you’re running the business, with maybe not a totally disciplined approach. – Jim Cantalupo

27638. You have got to have discipline and focus – on the customer and how you run the business. – Jim Cantalupo

27639. Because we only feed in the United States less than 1 per cent of the meals, most of them are eaten elsewhere. Most meals are eaten at home. So to make McDonald’s the target is not going to solve the problem. – Jim Cantalupo

27640. McDonald’s is almost 50 years old. For 47 years we had a pretty consistent track record of being able to deliver admirable sales. – Jim Cantalupo

27641. When you’re doing that you lose your focus on the discipline of the business, and how you train people at Hamburger University, and everybody gets on a bigger, different vision, and they’re not on the same page. – Jim Cantalupo

27642. And ours is a business that requires discipline and focus. – Jim Cantalupo

27643. I think we have a great track record on being relevant, on identifying consumer trends, needs and wants. – Jim Cantalupo

27644. I think this year we’ll open up 900 gross, we’re closing some, so the net count is lower, but the 900 are spread all over the place. Some of the closures are relocations, where you’re moving it to another place in the marketplace. – Jim Cantalupo

27645. I talked about 12 to 18 months, and that’s about reaffirming our foundation for sustained growth: getting the discipline back, getting the basics right, getting the customer focus back… so by the end of next year, I hope most of that’s in place. – Jim Cantalupo

27646. Every year we close 300-400 stores anyway, just relocations. – Jim Cantalupo

27647. But, on balance, we seized the marketplace. We’ve got a great infrastructure. And yes it’s struggling in some areas because of some external factors and some internal factors. – Jim Cantalupo

27648. But you know the second month I was here I put out a healthy lifestyles directive. The pundits will say it was because we were sued. Well that’s what they say. It was never about that. – Jim Cantalupo

27649. But we had a pretty diversified portfolio of businesses around the world and things tended to offset each other. But one or two years ago, we had a lot of things happening at the same time. – Jim Cantalupo

27650. But I tell you, I would really be interested if there was a partner we could take in, that could put them over here on the side, that would allow us full leverage and access down the road. – Jim Cantalupo

27651. But in terms of the code by which we go to market – it’s not telling kids to supersize, we’re not selling them, generally, products, in the advertising we do to them. – Jim Cantalupo

27652. As I said, I haven’t spent a lot of time thinking about partner brands. – Jim Cantalupo

27653. And so if your competitors aren’t growing, if there isn’t a competitive reason to grow, and you want focus and discipline to add customers to existing stores, you adjust your strategy. – Jim Cantalupo

27654. I think we’ll still be a family restaurant, we’ll be contemporary, we’ll be lifestyle, we won’t be old, we won’t be 60 years old in the view of the consumer. – Jim Cantalupo

27655. Thus you are just not because you give what is owed, but because you do what is appropriate to you as the highest good. – Anselm of Canterbury

27656. For I do not seek to understand in order to believe, but I believe in order to understand. For I believe this: unless I believe, I will not understand. – Anselm of Canterbury

27657. Spare me through your mercy, do not punish me through your justice. – Anselm of Canterbury

27658. On sand, you can never be sure of anything. An ordinary shot can take a wicked deflection at the last moment. – Eric Cantona

27659. If you have only one passion in life – football – and you pursue it to the exclusion of everything else, it becomes very dangerous. When you stop doing this activity it is as though you are dying. The death of that activity is a death in itself. – Eric Cantona

27660. You can lose in cinema too if you don’t put on a good performance. – Eric Cantona

27661. When the seagulls follow the trawler, it is because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea. – Eric Cantona

27662. We won the European Championship last September and now the world title. That is some year for French beach soccer! Now comes the hard part. We have to keep improving and that’s difficult because it’s tough to do better than winning a world title. – Eric Cantona

27663. We knew that you don’t get to be world champions without a struggle. – Eric Cantona

27664. The pressure people put on themselves and the rivalry between the teams is much more marked. And I think that’s a good thing. As long as that rivalry remains within the spirit of competition, it con only spur everyone on. – Eric Cantona

27665. Sometimes in life one experiences an emotion which is so strong that it is difficult to think, or to reason. – Eric Cantona

27666. Often there are players who have only football as a way of expressing themselves and never develop other interests. And when they no longer play football, they no longer do anything; they no longer exist, or rather they have the sensation of no longer existing. – Eric Cantona

27667. My best moment? I have a lot of good moments but the one I prefer is when I kicked the hooligan. – Eric Cantona

27668. It is enjoyable to make things visible which are invisible. – Eric Cantona

27669. In football you have an adversary; in cinema that adversary is yourself. – Eric Cantona

27670. Even as a footballer, I was always being creative. – Eric Cantona

27671. I’m proud of what I achieved there, but a life built on memories is not much of a life. – Eric Cantona

27672. Actually, I wanted to act even when I was still playing football. – Eric Cantona

27673. I am searching for abstract ways of expressing reality, abstract forms that will enlighten my own mystery. – Eric Cantona

27674. I didn’t study; I live. – Eric Cantona

27675. I don’t want to be in Terminator. I don’t want to go to Hollywood. – Eric Cantona

27676. I try to find different ways of expressing myself. Without that I will die. – Eric Cantona

27677. Sometimes you get submerged by emotion. I think it’s very important to express it – which doesn’t necessarily mean hitting someone. – Eric Cantona

27678. I prefer to play and lose rather than win, because I know in advance I’m going to win. – Eric Cantona

27679. I started beach football in Monte Carlo when I retired from football in 1997. I liked the game very much. – Eric Cantona

27680. I stopped playing football because I’d done as much as I could. I needed something which was going to excite me as much as football had excited me. – Eric Cantona

27681. I manage a team, for beach soccer. I’m the coach. Player, coach. – Eric Cantona

27682. It takes 20 years to make an overnight success. – Eddie Cantor

27683. When I see the Ten Most Wanted Lists… I always have this thought: If we’d made them feel wanted earlier, they wouldn’t be wanted now. – Eddie Cantor

27684. A wedding is a funeral where you smell your own flowers. – Eddie Cantor

27685. Marriage is an attempt to solve problems together which you didn’t even have when you were on your own. – Eddie Cantor

27686. Slow down and enjoy life. It’s not only the scenery you miss by going to fast – you also miss the sense of where you are going and why. – Eddie Cantor

27687. If the President says, oh, Washington’s got to change, and people are doubting whether my change can really happen, I think instead what the public’s begun to see is the change they’re seeing is not the change they voted for. – Eric Cantor

27688. I am hopeful for the American people that we can actually improve the outlook for bringing down costs in health care. – Eric Cantor

27689. Now the proposal is yet again another $150 billion before we start to think about a freeze. But $150 billion spent on more government programs; monies being created to direct and what kind of jobs that Washington thinks ought to be created. Come on. I mean there is a government that can help, and the government can also hurt. – Eric Cantor

27690. Look, we know we screwed up when we were in the majority. We fell in love with power. We spent way too much money – especially on earmarks. There was too much corruption when we ran this place. We were guilty. And that’s why we lost. – Eric Cantor

27691. It’s all about the fungibility and money. If Planned Parenthood accesses hundreds of millions of dollars of taxpayer money and they use that for other purposes, then they can use other dollars to fund abortion. – Eric Cantor

27692. It is time for us to insist that we are accountable for the money that we are spending. – Eric Cantor

27693. In a perfect world we would bring corporate tax rates down to 25% or less so we can get competitive in the world economy. Ultimately, I would love to see a flat tax. – Eric Cantor

27694. People have to take responsibility for themselves. We need to get the housing industry going again. We don’t need government intervening in every step. – Eric Cantor

27695. I am not for raising taxes in a recession, especially when it comes to job creators that we need so desperately to start creating jobs again. – Eric Cantor

27696. But, as we’ve seen over the last several months, the people in this country are very dissatisfied with the direction that this administration is taking this country. And what we heard last night was absolutely the ignoring of that fact. It was: We’re going to continue with this agenda. In fact, we’re going to double down on healthcare. – Eric Cantor

27697. And basically, the sense of the ‘Pledge to America’ is this: Republicans understand when we were in charge, we got fired in ’06. We spent too much money. We defied the trust that the people had put in us. And we know that there is a better way. – Eric Cantor

27698. Again, the American people expect us to do what they are doing. It’s tightening the belt, it’s learning how to do more with less. That’s a reality today, and we’ve got to do that in order to get the private sector growing. – Eric Cantor

27699. I mean, look, Nancy Pelosi said in the very beginning this is going to be the most open, honest and ethical Congress in history. And what we’re seeing is she’s breaking that promise every day. – Eric Cantor

27700. I mean, the Obama position has been, ‘We think government ought to be spending this money, not the people who earn it.’ – Eric Cantor

27701. We believe very strongly that you stop that denial of coverage by promoting choice. Let people make the decisions. – Eric Cantor

27702. Whether it’s people walking off ‘The View’ when Bill O’Reilly makes a statement about radical Islam or Juan Williams being fired for expressing his opinion, over-reaching political correctness is chipping away at the fundamental American freedoms of speech and expression. – Eric Cantor

27703. What the president announced yesterday, is that somehow magically, if we just continue to prime the pump of taxpayer dollars, we’re going to see magically an economic recovery. – Eric Cantor

27704. Well, if Democratic members in the House elect Nancy Pelosi as their leader, it’s almost as if they just didn’t get the message from the voters this election. I mean, the voters outright rejected the agenda that she’s been about. And here they’re going to put her back in charge. – Eric Cantor

27705. We’ve had Town Hall meetings, we’ve witnessed election after election, in which the American people have taken a position on the President’s health care bill. And the bottom line is the people don’t like this bill. They don’t want it. – Eric Cantor

27706. We will cut programs, we will try to rein in the size of the bureaucracy. We will bring federal pay scales that have become so exaggerated into line with market rates. – Eric Cantor

27707. You know, there are people making a lot of money in this country who can actually afford their own health care. We are in a situation where we got a safety net in place in this country for people who frankly don’t need one. We got to focus on making sure we got a safety net for those who actually need it. – Eric Cantor

27708. We have a plan that creates universal access programs at the state level which allows folks to access insurance if they’re denied by their insurer. – Eric Cantor

27709. You know, we have a fiscal train wreck before us. And unless we act, and act deliberately, we’re not going to enable our kids to have what we have. It’s plain and simple as that. – Eric Cantor

27710. We believe that if you put in place the mechanisms that allow for personal choice as far as Medicare is concerned, as well as the programs in Medicaid, that we can actually get to a better result and do what most Americans are learning how to do, which is to do more with less. – Eric Cantor

27711. We as Republicans understand that we have got to protect these… entitlement programs – these entitlement programs for our seniors today. And we have to sit down and have a discussion. We need more ideas on the table. – Eric Cantor

27712. The Republicans have put together serious detailed counter-proposals when we have objected to this administration’s agenda. And so, I want to tell the President and remind him again, we’re not voting no for political expediency. We’ve got our principles, and we’re going to stand up and defend those. – Eric Cantor

27713. The issue for us is rebuilding a governing majority that is comfortable with differences that can transcend the divisiveness and unify behind the principles that we know our party has succeeded on. – Eric Cantor

27714. The American people elected us here to cut spending so we can create an environment for jobs in America. The House has acted. We have demonstrated that we want to see spending, discretionary spending, brought down to levels of 2008. We’ve seen no counteraction. We have seen no position that has been expressed by the other side at all. – Eric Cantor

27715. We know that appropriators will fight these cutbacks. But by eliminating earmarks, we can stop the horse trading that grows agency budgets. – Eric Cantor

27716. In mathematics the art of proposing a question must be held of higher value than solving it. – Georg Cantor

27717. The essence of mathematics lies in its freedom. – Georg Cantor

27718. A set is a Many that allows itself to be thought of as a One. – Georg Cantor

27719. I realise that in this undertaking I place myself in a certain opposition to views widely held concerning the mathematical infinite and to opinions frequently defended on the nature of numbers. – Georg Cantor

27720. I think you can feel the pain I’ve experienced in my music. It’s something that a lot of people can relate to. – Blu Cantrell

27721. You know, I do not think it is necessarily looks, I do not think I am the prettiest girl… Everyone has something that is their asset, some have the hair, some have the cheekbones, others have the lips. But once you know what is your asset, then you should capitalize on it. – Blu Cantrell

27722. There’s so much left to achieve, there’s so much more to do, there’s so much that has not been done. – Blu Cantrell

27723. The word of the mouth is a very powerful thing and you can say something about someone that is not necessarily true, but people will believe it and it will become a constant reminder and every time that your name is bought up, that will come up. – Blu Cantrell

27724. Men are more prone to cheating, definitely. – Blu Cantrell

27725. I really liked working with Sean Paul; he is a very attractive guy, very hot. He was fun; the chemistry was really great, it was great to be in the moment. – Blu Cantrell

27726. I feel like I’m a very good role model for women. – Blu Cantrell

27727. I am disappointed in the music business, I feel like a lot of people in the music business are phoney, there’s a lot of people who will abuse and take my kindness. – Blu Cantrell

27728. I am a role model, definitely and I definitely support women. – Blu Cantrell

27729. Posing nude is not making porn. – Blu Cantrell

27730. To me not one thing is better than anything else, I’m completely proud of everything I’ve written and recorded. – Jerry Cantrell

27731. Rehearsals and this band are two words that don’t really go together, kinda like Military Intelligence. – Jerry Cantrell

27732. Our music’s kind of about taking something ugly and making it beautiful. – Jerry Cantrell

27733. And when power ballads come back, we’ll get big hair again. – Jerry Cantrell

27734. Every record that you do man, is sooo different in every way. – Jerry Cantrell

27735. But the fact is, it’s illegal for the Administration to spend North west taxpayers’ money to develop this rate hike proposal, just so it can turn around and raise their energy rates. – Maria Cantwell

27736. We’ll make our voices heard loud and clear on the importance of cost-based power. – Maria Cantwell

27739. I’d rather betray the world than let the world betray me. – Cao Cao

27740. What is at a peak is certain to decline. He who shows his hand will surely be defeated. He who can prevail in battle by taking advantage of his enemy’s doubts is invincible. – Cao Cao

27741. The war correspondent has his stake – his life – in his own hands, and he can put it on this horse or that horse, or he can put it back in his pocket at the very last minute. – Robert Capa

27746. This war is like an actress who is getting old. It is less and less photogenic and more and more dangerous. – Robert Capa

27747. I would say that the war correspondent gets more drinks, more girls, better pay, and greater freedom than the soldier, but at this stage of the game, having the freedom to choose his spot and being allowed to be a coward and not be executed for it is his torture. – Robert Capa

27748. I hope to stay unemployed as a war photographer till the end of my life. – Robert Capa

27749. I am a gambler. I decided to go in with Company E in the first wave. – Robert Capa

27752. It’s not always easy to stand aside and be unable to do anything except record the sufferings around one. – Robert Capa

27753. We played at a club called, the Elbow Room. Don Carlos, the nightclub owner, was very hip and a very important person who made a big impact on my life. – Jim Capaldi

27754. So the name of a group has to say something. The name has to be strong. – Jim Capaldi

27755. They gave it to us for about five bucks a week, and we just went there to live. Probably the first band that ever did that back then and it became the famous cottage. – Jim Capaldi

27756. This was an important part of my life. But it was also sad that we didn’t play there, cause we had such alot of fans that were waiting for us and Brazilians are great people. It’s now my second home. – Jim Capaldi

27764. You try to be moody when you’re young and it had a good ring to it. – Jim Capaldi

27765. We all had a desire and appreciation for such a wide range of music. – Jim Capaldi

27766. Everything that Traffic ever did, I’d give Steve a complete lyric, titled, written out with the verse, the bridge, the shape and rhyme and then Steve had to figure out how the meter of the words would fit musically. – Jim Capaldi

27767. This kind of music was just hitting England, so we were getting this following in clubs in Birmingham just cause we were trying to do something different. – Jim Capaldi

27768. I was half asleep lying there writing this lyric in my head at about 3:30 in the morning. I woke Steve up with this idea and then we went into the living room where there was a little upright piano and finished the song. I wonder where that piano is now? – Jim Capaldi

27769. But then you have to write a song, so at that point, I picked up the reins and started to write lyrics. – Jim Capaldi

27770. After that, I specifically started writing lyrics. I would like sweat and think and get it all together. – Jim Capaldi

27771. Far From Home was also my idea from a magazine I’d seen. – Jim Capaldi

27792. Much melancholy has devolved upon mankind, and it is detestable to me that might will triumph in the end. – Karel Capek

27793. Any acceleration constitutes progress, Miss Glory. Nature had no understanding of the modern rate of work. From a technical standpoint the whole of childhood is pure nonsense. Simply wasted time. An untenable waste of time. – Karel Capek

27800. If one must fight or create, it is necessary that this be preceded by the broadest possible knowledge. – Karel Capek

27806. If out of all mankind one finds a single friend, he has found something more precious than any treasure, since there is nothing in the world so valuable that it can be compared to a real friend. – Andreas Capellanus
