32806. I have been blessed to see visions of eternity; and events in my future that have been important for me to foresee, have been revealed to me. – Clayton Christensen

32807. Each of our children during their high school years went to ‘early morning seminary’ – scripture study classes that met in the home of a church member every school day morning from 6:30 until 7:15. – Clayton Christensen

32808. Christine and I haven’t raised our children. A whole community of selfless Christians has contributed to helping them become faithful, competent adults. – Clayton Christensen

32809. Because we employ no professional preachers, it means that every sermon or lesson in church is given by a regular member – women and men, children and grandparents. – Clayton Christensen

32810. As I have studied the Bible and the Book of Mormon, I have come to know through the power of the Spirit of God, that these books contain the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ. – Clayton Christensen

32811. The path I am trying so hard to follow is in fact the one that God my Father and His Son Jesus Christ want me to pursue. It has brought me deep happiness. – Clayton Christensen

32812. The thing about that too is that we had the same extras everyday. It was such a community. It was like a microcosmic little town. We were like all little towns people with extras and a crew. – Erika Christensen

32813. I can’t say enough about how I’m against drugs. Be smart, think about it, look at what it does to people, look at how much you have to experience in life and be courageous enough to do everything you want to without that chemical help. – Erika Christensen

32814. I’ve always been a good flier. I love the whole experience. – Erika Christensen

32815. My grandmother was, back when they called them ‘stewardesses,’ a flight attendant. I actually had a ball wearing that little uniform and making sure everything was under control. – Erika Christensen

32816. Watching Jodie on this is incredible; it’s the perfect role for her. It’s so intense and so emotional. She just jumped right into it and is so professional. – Erika Christensen

32817. We were worried about that actually. The cast was thinking that they’d lose their minds. But we didn’t. – Erika Christensen

32818. One of the things I find about acting is that the less the audience knows about the actor, the more they’re able to believe in him in the role. – Hayden Christensen

32819. A long time ago, in a country not so far away, I was eight years old, doing my best Darth Vader imitation. – Hayden Christensen

32820. I’m just this kid from Toronto who got his start. – Hayden Christensen

32821. I had never done any serious acting before, but I decided that it was a chance that I should take. – Helena Christensen

32822. When you are modelling, you are creating a picture, a still life, perhaps something like a silent film. You convey emotion but you are only using your body. – Helena Christensen

32823. I was born in high heels and I’ve worn them ever since. – Helena Christensen

32824. I’ve taken my knickers off. My friends told me my panty line was visible, so I went without. – Helena Christensen

32825. In modelling, there is no point in trying to prove you have a brain, so why even bother? I’d sooner save the energy for something more meaningful. – Helena Christensen

32826. Kate is going to come back, she is going to be super-strong again. Everybody is going to want her again because she is that kind of person. She is very professional and beautiful and she is going to be around forever. – Helena Christensen

32827. The more people explore the world, the more they realize in every country there’s a different aesthetic. Beauty really is in the eye of the beholder. – Helena Christensen

32828. There are particular images that I like. Allegro is composed of a series of still life photographs that has been put to speed. There is so much care that has gone into the composition of the cinematography. – Helena Christensen

32829. This was all very new to me and I did not want to ruin his film! So we worked hard on that basis of confidence that is needed to collaborate comfortably. – Helena Christensen

32830. When on the set of a film, you have to play natural for entire scenes in a very unnatural environment. You have to express emotions and interact with other actors and also use your voice. – Helena Christensen

32831. I am very much aware of the visual side of things. I do a lot of photography. I often take Polaroids of things that strike me as visually interesting, just to remember them and perhaps use later. – Helena Christensen

32832. I’m used to working alone. Frankly with some of the actors I’ve worked with, I’ve felt like I was working alone. – Claudia Christian

32833. If I didn’t have to do it, I wouldn’t have done it. If I had a million bucks in the bank, I wouldn’t have done Playboy. – Claudia Christian

32834. I’m gonna be a character in a Happy Meal. – Claudia Christian

32835. I’m more embarrassed about some of the films that I’ve been in than I am about Playboy. Playboy I’m actually quite proud of. – Claudia Christian

32836. I’m too old to adapt to somebody else’s ways. – Claudia Christian

32837. I give everyone the benefit of the doubt. – Claudia Christian

32838. Directors never give you anything. – Claudia Christian

32839. I wish everyone was a sci-fi geek because then there would be no violence in the world. There’d be no wars. There’d only be people e-mailing each other. – Claudia Christian

32840. It’s great when you find somebody you’re compatible with, but I’m really into separate bedrooms. You live your life and I live mine. – Claudia Christian

32841. Occasionally if you do something extraordinary, the crew responds with spontaneous applause, but that’s very rare. – Claudia Christian

32842. Sci-fi nerds are respectful, honorable. You can trust them. – Claudia Christian

32843. I’ve been doing theatre since I was 5 years old. – Claudia Christian

32844. You can’t look in the face of adoration and be cruel. – Claudia Christian

32845. The busier you are, the more interesting you are. The more you’re off doing your thing and loving your job and your life, that’s fascinating. – Claudia Christian

32846. I’ve auctioned off many scripts and will continue to do so for good causes. – Claudia Christian

32847. Good stories flow like honey. Bad stories stick in the craw. A bad story? One that cannot be absorbed on the first time of reading. – Arthur Christiansen

32848. News, news, news – that is what we want. You cannot beat news in a newspaper. – Arthur Christiansen

32849. We never waste space saying, “On the one hand.” We just state an opinion in a Godlike voice. – Arthur Christiansen

32850. Never do anything yourself that others can do for you. – Agatha Christie

32851. Most successes are unhappy. That’s why they are successes – they have to reassure themselves about themselves by achieving something that the world will notice. – Agatha Christie

32852. It is ridiculous to set a detective story in New York City. New York City is itself a detective story. – Agatha Christie

32853. It is a curious thought, but it is only when you see people looking ridiculous that you realize just how much you love them. – Agatha Christie

32854. If one sticks too rigidly to one’s principles, one would hardly see anybody. – Agatha Christie

32855. I’ve always believed in writing without a collaborator, because where two people are writing the same book, each believes he gets all the worry and only half the royalties. – Agatha Christie

32856. I specialize in murders of quiet, domestic interest. – Agatha Christie

32857. Evil is not something superhuman, it’s something less than human. – Agatha Christie

32858. I don’t think necessity is the mother of invention. Invention, in my opinion, arises directly from idleness, possibly also from laziness – to save oneself trouble. – Agatha Christie

32859. I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing. – Agatha Christie

32860. One doesn’t recognize the really important moments in one’s life until it’s too late. – Agatha Christie

32861. I live now on borrowed time, waiting in the anteroom for the summons that will inevitably come. And then – I go on to the next thing, whatever it is. One doesn’t, luckily, have to bother about that. – Agatha Christie

32862. I married an archaeologist because the older I grow, the more he appreciates me. – Agatha Christie

32863. One of the luckiest things that can happen to you in life is, I think, to have a happy childhood. – Agatha Christie

32864. The best time to plan a book is while you’re doing the dishes. – Agatha Christie

32865. The happy people are failures because they are on such good terms with themselves they don’t give a damn. – Agatha Christie

32866. The popular idea that a child forgets easily is not an accurate one. Many people go right through life in the grip of an idea which has been impressed on them in very tender years. – Agatha Christie

32867. The secret of getting ahead is getting started. – Agatha Christie

32868. There is nothing more thrilling in this world, I think, than having a child that is yours, and yet is mysteriously a stranger. – Agatha Christie

32869. Everything that has existed, lingers in the Eternity. – Agatha Christie

32870. These little grey cells. It is up to them. – Agatha Christie

32871. Good advice is always certain to be ignored, but that’s no reason not to give it. – Agatha Christie

32872. Too much mercy… often resulted in further crimes which were fatal to innocent victims who need not have been victims if justice had been put first and mercy second. – Agatha Christie

32873. Very few of us are what we seem. – Agatha Christie

32874. Where large sums of money are concerned, it is advisable to trust nobody. – Agatha Christie

32875. Dogs are wise. They crawl away into a quiet corner and lick their wounds and do not rejoin the world until they are whole once more. – Agatha Christie

32876. There’s too much tendency to attribute to God the evils that man does of his own free will. – Agatha Christie

32877. An archaeologist is the best husband a woman can have. The older she gets the more interested he is in her. – Agatha Christie

32878. Curious things, habits. People themselves never knew they had them. – Agatha Christie

32879. Crime is terribly revealing. Try and vary your methods as you will, your tastes, your habits, your attitude of mind, and your soul is revealed by your actions. – Agatha Christie

32880. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing. – Agatha Christie

32881. Any woman can fool a man if she wants to and if he’s in love with her. – Agatha Christie

32882. Every murderer is probably somebody’s old friend. – Agatha Christie

32883. But surely for everything you have to love you have to pay some price. – Agatha Christie

32884. One state retiree, 49 years old, paid, over the course of his entire career, a total of $124,000 towards his retirement pension and health benefits. What will we pay him? $3.3 million in pension payments over his life and nearly $500,000 for health care benefits – a total of $3.8m on a $120,000 investment. – Chris Christie

32885. Given my last position, that I was the first U.S attorney post 9/11 in New Jersey, I understand acutely the pain and sorrow and upset of the family members who lost loved ones that day at the hands of radical Muslim extremists. And their sensitivities and concerns have to be taken into account. – Chris Christie

32886. Higher taxes is the road to ruin. We must and we will shrink our government, and that means making some tough choices, tightening our belts. – Chris Christie

32887. I am not going to make any commitments to the teachers union to do anything until they do something that’s other than in their own self- interest. And everything they have done so far is in their self-interests, and that’s it. – Chris Christie

32888. I can guarantee you this, that more pension and benefit reforms which I will consider arbitration reform to be one of them, are things that when they come to my desk, they will be signed. – Chris Christie

32889. I said we are going to balance an $11 billion budget deficit in a $29 billion budget, so by percentage, the largest budget deficit in America, by percentage, larger than California, larger than New York, larger than Illinois. And we’re going to balance that without raising taxes on the people of the state of New Jersey. – Chris Christie

32890. And I just think that we’re at a point in our economic life here in our state – and – and, candidly, across the country, where increased taxes is just the wrong way to go. The people of our state are not convinced that state government, county government, local government has done all they can with the money we already give them, rather than the money that we have before. – Chris Christie

32891. Is there any wonder why we are in such big trouble? Any question why the people don’t trust their government anymore, and demand a change? – Chris Christie

32892. A retired teacher paid $62,000 towards her pension and nothing, yes nothing, for full family medical, dental and vision coverage over her entire career. What will we pay her? $1.4 million in pension benefits and another $215,000 in health care benefit premiums over her lifetime. – Chris Christie

32893. Our state is in crisis. Our people are hurting. Now is the time when we all must resist the traditional, selfish call to protect your own turf at the cost of our state. It is time to leave the corner, join the sacrifice, come to the center of the room and be part of the solution. – Chris Christie

32894. Someone has to stay on the line and say, no, we can do this by cutting spending and reducing the size of government. That’s what I was committed to doing. – Chris Christie

32895. The people elected us to end the talk and to act decisively. – Chris Christie

32896. Today is the day for the complaining to end and for statesmanship to begin. Today I am taking action to cut state spending and balance the budget this year. – Chris Christie

32897. Today we must make a pact with each other to end this reckless conduct with the people’s government. – Chris Christie

32898. You just have to stand and grit your teeth and know your poll numbers are going to go down – and mine have – but you gotta grit through it because the alternative is unacceptable. – Chris Christie

32899. You know, at some point there has to be parity. There has to be parity between what is happening in the real world, and what is happening in the public sector world. – Chris Christie

32900. If we make the tough decisions now, we will be one year ahead of 80 percent of the states in the race to economic growth. If we fail to act, we will fall even further behind… by going first, we can become first. – Chris Christie

32901. And on this you have my pledge – unlike in the past, when you stood up and did what was right, this governor will not pull the rug out from underneath you – I will sign strong reform bills. – Chris Christie

32902. Living in America, I became aware of many issues and went through a period of politicization. – Julie Christie

32903. I regret that I wasn’t the kind of person who could enjoy celebrity. It embarrassed me too much. – Julie Christie

32904. I don’t think I would have been a good mother. Being a parent brings immense responsibility. It’s a Herculean task. It would be almost too much for me. – Julie Christie

32905. As I became very defined in my personal politics, I turned down some films that I slightly regret now; I’m not going to say what they were. – Julie Christie

32906. I never will have peace of mind. I’m not constructed that way. Some things in life can be horrible. – Julie Christie

32907. I think I’ve got something when I’m onscreen, but that’s nothing to do with acting or talent. – Julie Christie

32908. I was born with a need to be the center of attention, and, of course, you’re the center of the world when you’re acting. – Julie Christie

32909. I was utilized because I have a certain face that works well in cinema, and I’m used to making myself look as good as possible. – Julie Christie

32910. I’d never been content in America. – Julie Christie

32911. I’m not in the advertising business, but I think it would be very nice if people went to see the film Hamlet, because it was made with love and integrity. – Julie Christie

32912. I’ve never quite understood why people marry; marriage is just an invented structure. – Julie Christie

32913. It’s quite hard for me being an actress because I actually don’t like attention. – Julie Christie

32914. I see stardom very clearly as a construct that’s been created in order to sell things. – Julie Christie

32915. Men don’t want any responsibility, and neither do I. – Julie Christie

32916. Most of the time I spent in America, I was having a love affair with some American or other. I was just passing through but stayed because of these chaps. – Julie Christie

32917. My family said that I wanted to act even when I was a child living on a tea plantation in the jungle in India. – Julie Christie

32918. Some people enjoy celebrity. I admire those who do, because if you’re going to go through it, you might as well enjoy it. – Julie Christie

32919. The little things that made up the fabric of the first six years of my life were suddenly ripped away, and I didn’t have anyone around me who loved me. Not one single person. – Julie Christie

32920. The status quo and the media is doing everything it can to fry children’s brains and make them grow up maladjusted. – Julie Christie

32921. There were some films I refused because the feminist aspect was a bit wonky. – Julie Christie

32922. When I came back to Britain, I realized that I was no longer a very young woman. I had to meet my new consciousness, my new age, with roles that reflected it somewhat. – Julie Christie

32923. I started noticing how stained the pavements are in London. The pavements in Beverly Hills aren’t used; in London, they’re used for everything. It doesn’t matter how much they’re cleaned, they still reflect light. – Julie Christie

32924. I remember becoming aware of women’s issues and inequality. It became glaringly clear to me when I was living in America that women are regarded as less intelligent than men. – Julie Christie

32925. I did things like Shampoo and Heaven Can Wait. I don’t know what those films were about. The women I played in them were not very empowered. – Julie Christie

32926. It takes me time to realize things; I’m a speedy person but a slow thinker. – Julie Christie

32927. Happiness is the absence of suffering. I think it’s an interesting way of looking at it. I think the absence of suffering exists very rarely in the world we live in. – Julie Christie

32928. Children can only take so much, and they deal with it however they can. – Julie Christie

32929. Altman works in such an interesting way, letting things occur in the film even if he didn’t particularly plan them. – Julie Christie

32930. Early on, I found the attention completely embarrassing. I’d cringe if I saw my picture on the cover of a magazine. – Julie Christie

32931. I basically put myself into directors’ hands and let them tell me what to do, and the more they told me what to do, the more I liked it. – Julie Christie

32932. There was no money in the sport but we’d be out there day in, day out, rain or shine, doing it. – Linford Christie

32933. But I sometimes think we have too much of a fixation about 2012. – Linford Christie

32934. I am a coach on the outside of the establishment and that works. – Linford Christie

32935. I coach a few guys and they work very, very hard, but in our day we did it because we just loved it. – Linford Christie

32936. I don’t think there are really enough meetings in Britain for our athletes to compete properly, and because of this a lot of the talent we have has been stunted. – Linford Christie

32937. I have got better things to do in working with my athletes who I feel are going to be involved in 2012. – Linford Christie

32938. I know what it takes to get to the top. – Linford Christie

32939. I think it’s great that they are getting funding, but it’s just too easy. They don’t have to work for it. We did it because we had pride, because we loved it. – Linford Christie

32940. I think the athletes respond well to me because I have been successful. – Linford Christie

32941. If you criticise something then you have to have an alternative, but we do have to try and improve things. – Linford Christie

32942. My first love is the sport, and it will always be my priority. – Linford Christie

32943. Adopting a new healthier lifestyle can involve changing diet to include more fresh fruit and vegetables as well as increasing levels of exercise. – Linford Christie

32944. Some of today’s athletes do not have that kind of pride. They left school at 16, have never had a job in their life and are getting Lottery funding, earning money as an athlete. – Linford Christie

32945. We have got to go out there and deliver, go on the streets and find athletes, improve facilities around the country and find coaches. We have got to go out there and search for a star. – Linford Christie

32946. Obviously I was disappointed when it fell into disuse, because it was my own track named after me, but I am sure all those youngsters we lost will be coming back, and I certainly intend to be down here as much as I can, coaching and advising. – Linford Christie

32947. The suffering of the Bahamian people is nearly ended. A new day is coming. It is almost here. – Perry Christie

32948. I even had the illusion, for a very short time, that I could become a medium pace bowler. – Perry Christie

32949. I have just come out of an electoral experience with the people of my country in which I invited them to join me in a partnership for governance. – Perry Christie

32950. The Bahamas is headed for unprecedented economic activity. – Perry Christie

32951. Fools are more to be feared than the wicked. – Queen Christina

32952. It is necessary to try to pass one’s self always; this occupation ought to last as long as life. – Queen Christina

32953. We wish to work in total freedom. – Christo

32954. Germany is an economic giant but a political midget, and with the end of the Cold War she has started to muscle her presence throughout Europe and the world. – Christo

32955. If some of our works are symphonies, then wrapped walkways was chamber music. – Christo

32956. It appears to be monumental only because it’s art. – Christo

32957. New York is our home. – Christo

32958. Now, to describe the process of the Wrapped Reichstag, which went from 1971 to ’95, there is an entire book about that, because each one of our projects has its own book. The book is not an art book, meaning it’s not written by an art historian. – Christo

32959. Our work is a scream of freedom. – Christo

32960. People think our work is monumental because it’s art, but human beings do much bigger things: they build giant airports, highways for thousands of miles, much, much bigger than what we create. – Christo

32961. That could stay, not forever, because we believe that nothing exists that is forever, not even the dinosaurs, but if well maintained, it could remain for four to five thousand years. And that is definitely not forever. – Christo

32962. The decision to use only the name Christo was made deliberately when we were young because it is difficult for one artist to get established and we wanted to put all the chances on our side. – Christo

32963. But the drawings are not created only to be sold. – Christo

32964. You see, we are not machines and we do not have lots of ideas in a drawer. – Christo

32965. It is not only one person’s work, it’s really a partnership and collaboration during all these years. – Christo

32966. We tell them that we believe it will be beautiful because that is our specialty, we only create joy and beauty. We have never done a sad work. Through the drawings, we hope a majority will be able to visualize it. – Christo

32967. We have created indoor installations inside museums, like the Wrapped Floor at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago in 1968, and not monumental at all by any standards. – Christo

32968. We don’t sell technical drawings except when they are incorporated into a drawing or a collage. – Christo

32969. To keep that absolute freedom we cannot be obliged to anyone. – Christo

32970. Therefore, when we arrive in a place and talk to new people about a new image, it is very hard for them to visualize it. That’s where the drawings are very important, because at least we can show a projection of what we believe it will look like. – Christo

32971. Therefore we have to go over the fact that all human beings are afraid by what is new. It is our work to convince them that they will enjoy it, and even if they don’t, to allow us just for 14 days to create that work of art. – Christo

32972. The work of art is a scream of freedom. – Christo

32973. The other work we started in 1992, it is called Over the River, Project for the Arkansas River in the state of Colorado, we haven’t got the permit yet. And, we are working at both of those, trying to get the permit. Therefore, we do not know which one will be realized next. – Christo

32974. The other exception where we did not at all restore the place to its original condition is the Surrounded Islands. Before we installed our fabric, we had our workers remove 42 tons of garbage off the beaches of those islands. We never brought the garbage back. – Christo

32975. The only place where people in Manhattan walk for leisure is in the park. – Christo

32976. The freedom of every artist is essential. – Christo

32977. But now, today, we don’t know if Over the River is truly the next project to be realized, because something very nice happened to our life in November in New York. – Christo

32978. Now, there is no way to say how long some projects take, that’s our principle. – Christo

32979. Because we do not sell photographs, we have no royalties on books, posters, postcards. – Christo

32980. And the most unusual and surrealistic place in New York City is Central Park. – Christo

32981. And for every project, because it takes years, you can see the early drawings and collages as just a simple, vague idea, and through the years and through the negotiations of getting the permit, you see that every detail is now clarified. – Christo

32982. You hope for the best, but it’s really OK if you don’t win. They say it’s just nice to be nominated, and it really is. – Tyler Christopher

32983. Working with my new coach has helped a lot. I’ve been a lot more focused and I’m doing all the little things in order to get faster. It’s been a total lifestyle change really. – Tyler Christopher

32984. The key is to keep improving. I’m not there yet. I know I have to keep trying to improve and keep trying to get faster. – Tyler Christopher

32985. We’ve had some fairly intensive discussions leading up to these meetings between NATO and Russia, preparing for them, and it’s going to be a very important six months for NATO. – Warren Christopher

32986. You know, it’s been President Clinton’s dream that we’ll have finally a fully integrated Europe; and the steps that NATO will take to expand to the East, that’s a commitment. – Warren Christopher

32987. We’ve worked with President Yeltsin. He is the President of the country. He’s been a reformer. We’ve been able to accomplish a number of things together. – Warren Christopher

32988. When I was a very young lawyer, I had a senior partner who advised me never to get mad, except on purpose. – Warren Christopher

32989. The NATO forces will, to the extent that they have capacity, assist the war crimes tribunal. – Warren Christopher

32990. My clerkship with Justice Douglas was tremendously important. He told me, Christopher, get out into the stream of history and see what happens. I’ve tried to follow that advice. – Warren Christopher

32991. My father was a small-town banker. He became very ill when I was 10 years old, and we went to California three years later in an attempt to recover his health, which never happened. – Warren Christopher

32992. One always wonders about roads not taken. – Warren Christopher

32993. Only two countries in this hemisphere are not democratic, but many countries in both Central and South America, and in the Caribbean, are really fragile democracies. – Warren Christopher

32994. Let’s see if we can’t get this war behind us now. Certainly, the man in the street, the common person there, wants to have this war behind him. I think a lot of the soldiers are very war-weary too. – Warren Christopher

32995. The monitors indicated that it was a credible election, I think, in an overall sense, it apparently is a free and fair election, so it’s a real milestone and one of the things we can take some little confidence in. – Warren Christopher

32996. I don’t want to talk about intelligence matters. I will say, however, that intelligence-community estimates should not become public in the way of this city and in the way of Congress. – Warren Christopher

32997. The Palestinian election is something that was really a turning point. It’s a mandate for peace. – Warren Christopher

32998. The stakes are very high for us in Haiti. We have many important interests there. Perhaps the most important to me is our interest in the promotion of democracy in this hemisphere. – Warren Christopher

32999. The United States has done more for the war crimes tribunal than any other country in the world. We’re turning over all the information we have, including intelligence information. – Warren Christopher

33000. This is a very important relationship we have with Russia, the relationship over the nuclear arsenal that they have obviously is important. They’re a very powerful country. – Warren Christopher
