35278. You love all your characters, even the ridiculous ones. You have to on some level; they’re your weird creations in some kind of way. I don’t even know how you approach the process of conceiving the characters if in a sense you hated them. It’s just absurd. – Joel Coen

35279. When you do a writing job for a studio, one of the things you want to do is satisfy the expectations of your employer. That’s a little bit different than when you sit down and write something to satisfy yourself, because then you’re the employer. – Joel Coen

35280. When we do a movie with the studios, they wouldn’t be asking us to do it, I don’t think, if it was a movie they wanted to get into themselves. What you see is what you get with us, so they let us do what we want to do. – Joel Coen

35291. Some people come out going, I don’t get it. And I don’t quite know what they’re trying to get, what they’re struggling for. We have had the reaction where people leave the movie sort of uncomfortable and befuddled. Although that wasn’t our intention. – Joel Coen

35296. It’s almost like a genre rule: Don’t Open The Box. – Joel Coen

35297. Maybe our telling of the story wasn’t as clear as it should have been, but I don’t think that’s true. In terms of understanding the story, it comes across. – Joel Coen

35300. People that have been interested in our work for awhile… those are the last people you want to disappoint. – Joel Coen

35301. Sometimes, in certain stories, I think we know at the outset essentially what the tone is going to be, or it becomes important that we’re groping toward some kind of story with a certain kind of tone that we both get somehow.

35308. The idea of writer as sage is pretty much dead today. I would certainly feel very uncomfortable in the role. – J. M. Coetzee

35310. Strictly speaking, my interest is not in legal rights for animals but in a change of heart towards animals. – J. M. Coetzee

35317. I tend to resist invitations to interpret my own fiction. – J. M. Coetzee

35318. As you see, I do not treat the creation of fiction, that to say the invention and development of fantasies, as a form of abstract thought. I dont wish to deny the uses of the intellect, but sometimes one has the intuition that the intellect by itself will lead one nowhere. – J. M. Coetzee

35319. If there were a better, clearer, shorter way of saying what the fiction says, then why not scrap the fiction? – J. M. Coetzee

35419. Give and ye shall receive. – Bram Cohen

35420. Despite my emphasis on technology, I do not view laws as inherently evil. My goals are political ones, even if my techniques are not. The only way to fundamentally succeed is by changing existing laws. If I rejected all help from the political arena I would inevitably fail. – Bram Cohen

35421. My father taught me Basic and rudimentary C, I learned everything else on my own, including studying computational complexity on my own. That’s more a function of my age than anything else though – back when I was in school there were hardly any programming classes. – Bram Cohen

35441. Let philosophy resolutely aim to be as scientific as possible, but let her not forget her strong kinship with literature. – Morris Raphael Cohen

35442. The picture which the philosopher draws of the world is surely not one in which every stroke is necessitated by pure logic. – Morris Raphael Cohen

35443. The method of exposition which philosophers have adopted leads many to suppose that they are simply inquiries, that they have no interest in the conclusions at which they arrive, and that their primary concern is to follow their premises to their logical conclusions. – Morris Raphael Cohen

35444. Literature and philosophy both allow past idols to be resurrected with a frequency which would be truly distressing to a sober scientist. – Morris Raphael Cohen

35448. To be sure, the vast majority of people who are untrained can accept the results of science only on authority. – Morris Raphael Cohen

35449. Liberalism is an attitude rather than a set of dogmas – an attitude that insists upon questioning all plausible and self-evident propositions, seeking not to reject them but to find out what evidence there is to support them rather than their possible alternatives. – Morris Raphael Cohen

35450. This open eye for possible alternatives which need to be scrutinized before we can determine which is the best grounded is profoundly disconcerting to all conservatives and to almost all revolutionaries. – Morris Raphael Cohen

35451. Lastly, literature and philosophy both allow past idols to be resurrected with a frequency which would be truly distressing to a sober scientist. – Morris Raphael Cohen

35459. Law is a formless mass of isolated decisions. – Morris Raphael Cohen

35460. It has generally been assumed that of two opposing systems of philosophy, e.g., realism and idealism, one only can be true and one must be false; and so philosophers have been hopelessly divided on the question, which is the true one. – Morris Raphael Cohen

35901. You get paid more at McDonald’s than you do under the existing minimum wage. – Norm Coleman

35903. Let me be clear, the discussions about Social Security are not about the retirement security of those Americans who are 55 or older – the Social Security system for those folks 55 and over will not change in any way shape of form – no ifs, ands, or buts. – Norm Coleman

35932. I asked my mother could I have an instrument. She said, ‘Well if you go out and save your money.’ So I went and got – I made me a shine box. I went out and started shining shoes, and I’d bring whatever I made. – Ornette Coleman

35933. I’ve been playing with Blackwell over 20 years. We used to play when I first went to Los Angeles. Blackwell plays the drums as if he’s playing a wind instrument. Actually, he sounds more like a talking drum. – Ornette Coleman

35934. I don’t know what they’re thinking about. Just because someone says, ‘I like what you do’ or something: They might like it today and tomorrow they might not. I’ve had that experience with record companies. – Ornette Coleman

35938. I think that those elements – light and sound – are beyond democratic. They’re into the creative part of life. – Ornette Coleman

35939. I’m having this conversation with you now. I’m talking, but I’m thinking, feeling, smelling, and moving. Yet I’m concentrating on what you’re saying. So that means there’s more things going on in the body than just the present thing that the person’s got you doing. – Ornette Coleman

35940. Even when you write it, someone’s got to play it. So if you can play it and bypass all the rest of the things, you’re still doing as great as someone that has spent forty years trying to find out how to do that. I’m really pro-human beings, pro-expression of everything. – Ornette Coleman
