30648. It is unusual for Joe to be that way, but that’s what interested me. – Michael Chabon

30649. I wasn’t involved, except to the degree that they sent me drafts of the script as the writer turned them in. They asked me at one point to write a memo about what I thought of it. – Michael Chabon

30650. It’s good to have it over with. I worked on it a long time, and I didn’t know what people were going to think of it. Would people like it? Would they buy it? So far it’s been doing pretty well. – Michael Chabon

30651. So it was scary, but that’s how it goes. To my great delight, I discovered that it did all belong. – Michael Chabon

30662. The liberals are fighting so hard whenever President Bush appoints any federal judges. – Steve Chabot

30663. The Senate needs 60 votes to pass anything. They have to compromise with liberal Democrats to spend more money. Even though arguably we have control of the Senate, we really don’t. – Steve Chabot

30664. There is insufficient support for the police and safety and law enforcement, in general, in the city council. – Steve Chabot

30665. There’s so much mudslinging going on, and people get so turned off by that. It seems like neither party is aware of that. They’re too concerned with blasting each other. – Steve Chabot

30666. Too often, they play to whatever group is the loudest down at City Hall, and they buy them off, essentially. – Steve Chabot

30667. We’ve passed an energy bill in the House, to help us be less reliant upon foreign oil so we can get gas prices down. But nothing happens in the Senate. – Steve Chabot

30668. Just because people are in authority, if it doesn’t seem right, don’t do it. If it violates your own principles, don’t do it. – Steve Chabot

30669. You have to starve the Beast. That’s one of the most important things about tax cuts. If you leave the money in Washington, it’s going to be spent. – Steve Chabot

30671. I’m not pessimistic about people in general, but only about the way they live. – Claude Chabrol

30673. I remember an article, I can’t recall who by, it was after the fall of the Berlin Wall, which said that now the Wall was down, there could be no more class war. Only someone with money could ever say such a thing. – Claude Chabrol

30686. There are no bridges in folk songs because the peasants died building them. – Eugene Chadbourne

30703. When I am finishing a picture, I hold some God-made object up to it – a rock, a flower, the branch of a tree or my hand – as a final test. If the painting stands up beside a thing man cannot make, the painting is authentic. If there’s a clash between the two, it’s bad art. – Marc Chagall

30704. The fingers must be educated, the thumb is born knowing. – Marc Chagall

30705. The dignity of the artist lies in his duty of keeping awake the sense of wonder in the world. In this long vigil he often has to vary his methods of stimulation; but in this long vigil he is also himself striving against a continual tendency to sleep. – Marc Chagall

30721. The issue of terrorism must be dealt with firmly. We must work very hard to avoid loss of life. We must work very hard to avoid civilian casualties. And those terrorists and Baathists are holding the people of Fallujah hostage. We must release the hostages. – Ahmed Chalabi

30722. The view that we hold in Iraq now is this – that democracy is associated with elections. I believe that elections are possible. – Ahmed Chalabi

30724. I’ve slowly gone back, later on in life, to fish and then chicken and then, last year, red meat. – Sarah Chalke

30730. Walking into a show when I was 16, at that time when it was the No. 1 hit show, and replacing a character comes with so many expectations. I felt a lot of pressure with that. – Sarah Chalke

30733. Roseanne was incredible to work with. She was extremely bright. – Sarah Chalke

30734. In fact, if they didn’t let me commute, I would not have taken the role because I wanted to graduate high school with my classmates. I remember my agent’s jaw dropping when I told him if I couldn’t commute I didn’t want the role. – Sarah Chalke

30735. I’m having the time of my life. I’ve never looked forward to going to work so much every day. I’m loving it; it’s great. It’s what I love to do and I wouldn’t want to be doing anything else. – Sarah Chalke

30736. I think it’s because it’s so different and it takes risks. Plus, it’s really smart humor. It gives the audience credit in terms of not needing to tell them when to laugh. I love that about the show. There’s no laugh track. – Sarah Chalke

30737. I don’t smoke, I try to eat right, and I love doing yoga and going for hikes with my dog. – Sarah Chalke

30738. I don’t think when people sign up for a life of doing something they love to do they should have to sign up for a complete loss of privacy. I understand a little loss of privacy coming with the job. – Sarah Chalke

30739. It was really cool going to Sea World. We had an amazing time. They were amazing to us. We got to swim with the dolphins, and it was really special. – Sarah Chalke

30741. I would like to think that I’m more different from my character than I am. – Sarah Chalke

30742. I think that as is true in this industry, everything gets blown out of proportion because it’s more fun for people to read about. It’s even more fun to read about if the stories get wilder and wilder. – Sarah Chalke

30743. I think that we had a really loyal, great audience on Tuesdays and we were hoping that with the move, they would come with us. It looks like they have, so things are good and we are going to keep building. – Sarah Chalke

30744. I was 17 and the whole thing was very confusing at the time. It was a great job and I loved it, and to lose the role was definitely tough for me. I was devastated when I lost the role. – Sarah Chalke

30745. I would be sad if it ended now. It’s been the best job I’ve had by a long shot, especially creatively because the writing is so good. Every week I get the script and I laugh out loud and get excited for the different stuff we get to do. – Sarah Chalke

30746. I lived in Vancouver, where they film so many things. So it gave me a good shot at it. – Sarah Chalke

30747. I have taught history on the high school and college levels, and am or have been a lecturer at the Smithsonian, The National Institutes of Health, and numerous colleges and universities, mostly on science fiction and technology subjects. – Jack L. Chalker

30748. If you got what it takes, you’ll make it. If you don’t, Shakespeare couldn’t help you. – Jack L. Chalker

30750. I write novels and other things. – Jack L. Chalker

30751. No, I don’t autograph blank slips, checks, or stickers, and certainly no books without me in them. – Jack L. Chalker

30760. Things are still in early stages, but one can imagine that as we build up and systematize our theories of these associations, and try to boil them down to their core, the result might point us toward the sort of fundamental principles I advocate. – David Chalmers

30761. There’s certainly nothing original about the observation that conscious experience poses a hard problem. – David Chalmers

30762. Sense data are much more controversial than qualia, because they are associated with a controversial theory of perception – that one perceives the world by perceiving one’s sense-data, or something like that. – David Chalmers

30764. It probably helps that my background is in the sciences and I can speak the scientists’ language. – David Chalmers

30770. Actually, I think most people accept the existence of qualia. – David Chalmers

30771. I think that consciousness has always been the most important topic in the philosophy of mind, and one of the most important topics in cognitive science as a whole, but it had been surprisingly neglected in recent years. – David Chalmers

30838. If you put the right things out there the right things will happen. – Jimmy Chamberlin

30839. What I see for the band by the end of this year is the Complex live at the Montreux Jazz Festival. I want my guys to be comfortable. I’m certainly not in this for the money, but I’d really like to see my guys make some money off of this stuff. – Jimmy Chamberlin

30840. When I’m at home I practice everyday. – Jimmy Chamberlin

30841. The thing I try to do the most is to play in terms of the song and play in terms of what I’m hearing. – Jimmy Chamberlin

30878. My children, as long as you live, the shadow of the Hiss Case will brush you. In every pair of eyes that rests on you, you will see pass, like a cloud passing behind a woods in winter, the memory of your father – dissembled in friendly eyes, lurking in unfriendly eyes. – Whittaker Chambers

30879. A nation’s life is about as long as its reverential memory. – Whittaker Chambers

30880. It is popular to call it a crisis of the Western world. It is in fact a crisis of the whole world. Communism, which claims to be a solution of the crisis, is itself a symptom and an irritant of the crisis. – Whittaker Chambers

30891. On that road of the informer, it is always night. I cannot ever inform against anyone without feeling something die within me. I inform without pleasure, because it is necessary. – Whittaker Chambers

30892. At issue in the Hiss Case was the question whether this sick society, which we call Western civilization, could in its extremity still cast up a man whose faith in it was so great that he would voluntarily abandon those things which men hold good, including life, to defend it. – Whittaker Chambers

30893. The chief fruit of the First World War was the Russian Revolution and the rise of Communism as a national power. – Whittaker Chambers

30894. The Communist vision is the vision of man without God. – Whittaker Chambers

30895. Tragedy occurs when a human soul awakes and seeks, in suffering and pain, to free itself from crime, violence, infamy, even at the cost of life. The struggle is the tragedy – not defeat or death. – Whittaker Chambers

30896. When you understand what you see, you will no longer be children. You will know that life is pain, that each of us hangs always upon the cross of himself. And when you know that this is true of every man, woman and child on earth, you will be wiser. – Whittaker Chambers

30904. But the thing we do know is whatever it costs to save and protect American lives in this conflict, we’re going to spend. – Saxby Chambliss

30905. I’m concerned about the cost, just like everybody else. There’s no question that we have an obligation to help the people of Louisiana and Mississippi to rebuild. – Saxby Chambliss

30978. American stuntmen are smart – they think about safety. When they do a jump in a car, they calculate everything: the speed, the distance… But in Hong Kong, we don’t know how to count.
