39221. I’ve always been switching around the show to accommodate the audience, and you know it really makes it a lot more fun for me and keeps it fresh so that I’m not complacent with the same show every night and with every audience. – Deborah Cox

39222. Both songs are really, really intense when it comes to performing them, and very draining at the same time. – Deborah Cox

39223. I always thought that it was every performer’s dream. That’s the epitome of being an artist, being able to express song, dance and acting in a live theatre setting and really connecting with an audience on that level. – Deborah Cox

39225. I never take on anything that is just for the money or just for, you know. I always have to connect with it in a very personal way because I believe the audience will sense whether I’m into it or not, so I don’t take on projects that I’m not really passionate about. – Deborah Cox

39229. I think differently, I think it’s about reaching everybody on every different plane and every different level, and if I could remix the song and do a dance remix, that’s great. If I could do a classical version, that’ll be great too. It’s all just about expression. – Deborah Cox

39232. I think the inspiration came from the fans. Whenever I’m online or whenever I get a chance to really communicate with the fans and the audience, they always say that they would love to have all of the remixes on one CD. – Deborah Cox

39233. I wanted to do Dreamgirls. If they’re doing a stage production of Sparkle, I think that would be hot. – Deborah Cox

39258. The only other thing that interested me as a kid was being a bricklayer. So if I hadn’t become an actress, I would probably be a bricklayer. – Nikki Cox

39261. I still don’t know quite what I’m supposed to do or be. – Nikki Cox

39267. I found out a long time ago that if I didn’t have a good story for a song, I could just make one up! Now it seems over half the stories in my show are made up. The funny thing is, those seem to be the ones that resonate the most with the audiences. – Ronny Cox

39268. I think that’s the great thing about music: It can communicate emotionally. And you don’t have to necessarily get all of the words. I mean you have to know what is being said, but didn’t you find even if you didn’t get all of the words, you certainly get the emotion? – Ronny Cox

39269. I much prefer playing the bad guys. I think they are always the most interesting characters. I liken it to painting: if you’re playing the good guy, you get three colors: red, white and blue. But if you’re the bad guy, you get the whole palette. – Ronny Cox

39270. The power of the sword, say the minority… is in the hands of Congress. – Tench Coxe

39274. I don’t think of myself as a singer really. – Graham Coxon

39294. It’s a bit loose and the people in my group have got other groups. They don’t have to have a total allegiance to me. I think that’s really a bit weird and showing some weird insecurity. – Graham Coxon

39295. With my daughter, who at the time was one, my domestic life needed to take more precedent and really with my own self I needed to develop quite a bit more. So that put Blur down the list of priorities quite a lot by the time I came to thinking about it. – Graham Coxon

39316. I embrace the idea that I’m an entertainer. – Wayne Coyne

39317. Anyway, Cat Stevens is never going to make much money out of us. – Wayne Coyne

39320. I can see that if this was an album done 10 or 15 years ago we could see we were moving on to some place else. – Wayne Coyne

39329. I am not that thrilled about the way our records sound anyway. Don’t get me wrong, I work hard on them and I want them to sound fantastic but I’m happy to have another interpretation of them anyway. – Wayne Coyne

39330. Interdependence is a fact, it’s not an opinion. – Peter Coyote

39331. Any political agenda and organization which doesn’t begin with personal responsibility is just half the argument. It’s just not going to succeed. – Peter Coyote

39355. Be there a will, and wisdom finds a way. – George Crabbe

39356. There’s a passion about this because people take it very close to their hearts and they have grown up with James Bond – and so have I. But I was being criticized before I had presented anything, so it was name calling. – Daniel Craig

39357. It’s a huge challenge, a huge responsibility. Bond is a huge iconic figure in movie history. These opportunities don’t come along very often so I thought, ‘Why not?’ – Daniel Craig

39358. I find it very easy playing Bond. I think he’s hilarious. He gets himself into some extraordinarily funny situations. – Daniel Craig

39359. Being on your own would be sad, sick and weird. I don’t trust myself. I need that balance. – Daniel Craig

39360. As soon as someone tells me: ‘You’re rather sexy,’ I wish I could disappear. If somebody says: ‘You were voted the world’s sexiest man,’ I have no idea what that means. How do I respond? ‘Thank you’ is the best you can do. George Clooney is the world’s sexiest man, anyway. – Daniel Craig

39361. Any voices or fantasies, he lives with. Those are his everyday life things. – Daniel Craig

39362. The idea of regretting not doing this seemed insane to me. Sitting in the corner at a bar at age 60, saying: ‘I could’ve been Bond. Buy me a drink.’ That’s the saddest place I could be. At least now at 60 I can say: ‘I was Bond. Now buy me a drink.’ – Daniel Craig

39363. Sexiness, particularly in movies, is the chess game in the ‘Thomas Crown Affair’. It’s, it’s, I don’t know, but Faye Dunaway comes up a lot in that thinking. It’s the subtlety of sexiness. The moment you try to be sexy, then it’s not. – Daniel Craig

39364. It’s not like I was trying to be sexy but I had to get fit because I had to be able to do stunts. Also I wanted that, if Bond took his clothes off, he looked like a man who did what he did, which was kill people for a living. I thought the only way to do that was to work out and get fit and buff and get physically into shape. – Daniel Craig

39365. It’s a Tim sandwich. The meat is fresh, but the bread is moldy. – Daniel Craig

39371. The subject matter is very tricky. It’s about the Munich massacre and what Mossad did afterwards with the assassination squads. I think it’s a turning point in history, especially for the Palestinians. – Daniel Craig

39372. We agreed to do it when I was drunk at his house one night, then on the day I had to have four large brandies – they didn’t touch the sides at all. People just got on with it though. It didn’t gather a crowd! – Daniel Craig

39373. There’s no real side to be on because I think it was a mess. – Daniel Craig

39374. I just felt that you can’t have a character fall in love so madly as they did in the last movie and not finish it off, understand it, get some closure. That’s why the movie is called ‘Quantum of Solace’ – that’s exactly what he’s looking for. – Daniel Craig

39375. That is what the title of artist means: one who perceives more than his fellows, and who records more than he has seen. – Edward Gordon Craig

39387. Consumers are increasingly feeling that they are being taken for a ride. – Larry Craig

39388. Flag desecration is not a constitutional issue for the courts. It is a political one that belongs to the people. – Larry Craig

39399. I haven’t collected memorabilia. I am not a person who lives in the past. – Yvonne Craig

39400. When you are doing a show, it can get really dull. You are sitting so long while they set up the lights, then you say a couple of lines, then they tear down the lights again. At least stunts are something that uses your physical energy a great deal. – Yvonne Craig

39401. To retain my fascination with chemistry, I have had to change my research fields about every 10 years. – Donald Cram

39402. This is largely the methodology I’ve used throughout my career – that is, starting with a question as to what might be the properties of a set of compounds that could be invented which were unusual and unpredictable. Many times I’ve felt a bit like Columbus setting sail. – Donald Cram

39403. An investigator starts research in a new field with faith, a foggy idea, and a few wild experiments. Eventually the interplay of negative and positive results guides the work. By the time the research is completed, he or she knows how it should have been started and conducted. – Donald Cram

39597. It’s as though all the terms of a family were present at one time rather than his dad and his mum. Not just a present authority, but the resident memory of what qualifies what else is the case. – Robert Creeley

39598. And what’s fascinating in The Ten Thousand Things is that although there’s time, an inexorable time of the three generations of lives, actively present, but place is the time, time doesn’t really have to do with simply the human experience of it. – Robert Creeley

39599. The pattern of the narrative never of necessity wants to end, it never has to. – Robert Creeley

39600. There are a lot of editorials that have nothing to do with anything like that. But I was just thinking of that sense of prose as being very responsible and perceptive, thoughtful, intimate, and contriving a quote statement. – Robert Creeley

39601. You were saying that once when visiting Yale, you were struck that unlike Pound, Williams’s thinking was volatile, I mean, did not stay locked into a pattern of concepts that then defined his subsequent necessary behavior, whereas Pound did. – Robert Creeley

39602. All of which was OK, as that proved then, I certainly wouldn’t contradict it as a necessary sense of things. – Robert Creeley

39603. Again like Williams, with the emphasis now regrettable, when a man makes a poem, makes it mind you, he takes the words as he finds them lying interrelated about him. – Robert Creeley

39604. The irony of our social group is that so often everyone feels this, but there’s no company whatsoever in that feeling. Think of Pound’s great emphasis, the way out is via the door. – Robert Creeley

39605. History is the record of an encounter between character and circumstances. – Donald Creighton

39606. No people do so much harm as those who go about doing good. – Mandell Creighton

39607. The game embarrasses you until you feel inadequate. – Ben Crenshaw

39608. I have felt terribly from the beginning when I saw the problems and recognized that they would be ongoing. We were hired to put back the contours of the greens as closely as possible to George Thomas’s designs and were real proud of what we did. It’s a sad situation now. – Ben Crenshaw

39609. I know most players do, but I always keep both eyes opened. I still do it. I see two shafts, the real one and the transparent one. I look for what’s on the inside edge of the transparent one. – Ben Crenshaw

39610. Golf is the hardest game in the world. There is no way you can ever get it. Just when you think you do, the game jumps up and puts you in your place. – Ben Crenshaw

39611. I can explain that shot. Arnold moved his wallet to the other pocket. – Ben Crenshaw

39612. I enjoy Augusta. I enjoy its challenges. There’s no other golf course like this anywhere. Its greens and its challenges on and around the greens are just super, super tough. So the greens are fun to play in sort of a morbid way. – Ben Crenshaw

39613. The empowerment of black women constitutes the empowerment of our entire community. – Kimberly Crenshaw

39614. I think that climatic changes have a natural causes according many geological data… I am very glad to sign the U.S. Senate’s report of scientists against the theory of man-made global warming. – Uberto Crescenti

39615. The problem is that you cannot prove yourself against someone who is much weaker than yourself. – Martin van Creveld

39616. As history since Hiroshima shows, the best, perhaps the only, way to curb war is to deter it with such overwhelming force as to turn it from a struggle into suicide. – Martin van Creveld

39617. Assuming China does not become destabilized and continues to grow, it will no doubt develop a military program in proportion to its resources. – Martin van Creveld

39618. Except when war is waged in a desert, noncombatants, also known as civilians or “the people,” constitute the great majority of those affected. – Martin Van Creveld

39619. If you are strong and fighting the weak, then if you kill your opponent then you are a scoundrel… if you let him kill you, then you are an idiot. – Martin van Creveld

39620. In the future as in the past, both Clausewitz and Sun Tzu will undoubtedly have a lot to offer. – Martin van Creveld

39621. It is simply not true that war is solely a means to an end, nor do people necessarily fight in order to obtain this objective or that. In fact, the opposite is true: people very often take up one objective or another precisely in order that they may fight. – Martin Van Creveld

39622. Sun Tzu does not need my praise. His work has lived for over two thousand years, and will surely live for another two thousand without any help from me. – Martin van Creveld

39623. The enemy resembles us. Therefore, he needs to be approached not as an assembly of ‘targets’ to be destroyed one by one; but as a living, intelligent entity capable of acting and reacting. – Martin Van Creveld

39625. Survival is triumph enough. – Harry Crews

39626. Teaching, real teaching, is – or ought to be – a messy business. – Harry Crews

39627. There is something beautiful about all scars of whatever nature. A scar means the hurt is over, the wound is closed and healed, done with. – Harry Crews

39628. What the artist owes the world is his work; not a model for living. – Harry Crews

39629. He did not know what love was. And he did not know what good it was. But he knew he carried it around with him, a scabrous spot of rot, of contagion, for which there was no cure. – Harry Crews

39630. I don’t know why I ever come in here. The flies get the best of everything. – Otis Criblecoblis

39631. I was in love with a beautiful blonde once. She drove me to drink. That’s the one thing I’m indebted to her for. – Otis Criblecoblis

39632. It’s not easy to cut through a human head with a hacksaw. – Michael Crichton

39633. Whenever you hear the consensus of scientists agrees on something or other, reach for your wallet, because you’re being had. – Michael Crichton

39634. We all live every day in virtual environments, defined by our ideas. – Michael Crichton

39635. They are focused on whether they can do something. They never think whether they should do something. – Michael Crichton

39636. Readers probably haven’t heard much about it yet, but they will. Quantum technology turns ordinary reality upside down. – Michael Crichton

39637. I tended to faint when I saw accident victims in the emergency ward, during surgery, or while drawing blood. – Michael Crichton

39638. I am certain there is too much certainty in the world. – Michael Crichton

39639. Historically, the claim of consensus has been the first refuge of scoundrels; it is a way to avoid debate by claiming that the matter is already settled. – Michael Crichton

39640. Books aren’t written – they’re rewritten. Including your own. It is one of the hardest things to accept, especially after the seventh rewrite hasn’t quite done it. – Michael Crichton

39641. In the information society, nobody thinks. We expect to banish paper, but we actually banish thought. – Michael Crichton

39642. The belief that there are other life forms in the universe is a matter of faith. There is not a single shred of evidence for any other life forms, and in forty years of searching, none has been discovered. There is absolutely no evidentiary reason to maintain this belief. – Michael Crichton

39643. Unfortunately it makes the unambiguous determination of triplets by these methods much more difficult than would be the case if there were only one triplet for each amino acid. – Francis Crick

39644. It now seems very likely that many of the 64 triplets, possibly most of them, may code one amino acid or another, and that in general several distinct triplets may code one amino acid. – Francis Crick

39645. It seems likely that most if not all the genetic information in any organism is carried by nucleic acid – usually by DNA, although certain small viruses use RNA as their genetic material. – Francis Crick

39646. It would appear that the number of nonsense triplets is rather low, since we only occasionally come across them. However this conclusion is less secure than our other deductions about the general nature of the genetic code. – Francis Crick

39647. Moreover the incorporation requires the same components needed for protein synthesis, and is inhibited by the same inhibitors. Thus the system is most unlikely to be a complete artefact and is very probably closely related to genuine protein synthesis. – Francis Crick

39648. The balance of evidence both from the cell-free system and from the study of mutation, suggests that this does not occur at random, and that triplets coding the same amino acid may well be rather similar. – Francis Crick

39649. We’ve discovered the secret of life. – Francis Crick

39650. This seems highly likely, especially as it has been shown that in several systems mutations affecting the same amino acid are extremely near together on the genetic map. – Francis Crick

39651. It now seems certain that the amino acid sequence of any protein is determined by the sequence of bases in some region of a particular nucleic acid molecule. – Francis Crick

39652. The meaning of this observation is unclear, but it raises the unfortunate possibility of ambiguous triplets; that is, triplets which may code more than one amino acid. However one would certainly expect such triplets to be in a minority. – Francis Crick

39653. A final proof of our ideas can only be obtained by detailed studies on the alterations produced in the amino acid sequence of a protein by mutations of the type discussed here. – Francis Crick

39654. We are sometimes asked what the result would be if we put four +’s in one gene. To answer this my colleagues have recently put together not merely four but six +’s. – Francis Crick

39655. A comparison between the triplets tentatively deduced by these methods with the changes in amino acid sequence produced by mutation shows a fair measure of agreement. – Francis Crick

39656. Attempts have been made from a study of the changes produced by mutation to obtain the relative order of the bases within various triplets, but my own view is that these are premature until there is more extensive and more reliable data on the composition of the triplets. – Francis Crick

39657. Do codons overlap? In other words, as we read along the genetic message do we find a base which is a member of two or more codons? It now seems fairly certain that codons do not overlap. – Francis Crick

39658. For simplicity one can think of the + class as having one extra base at some point or other in the genetic message and the – class as having one too few. – Francis Crick

39659. How is the base sequence, divided into codons? There is nothing in the backbone of the nucleic acid, which is perfectly regular, to show us how to group the bases into codons. – Francis Crick

39660. If poly A is added to poly U, to form a double or triple helix, the combination is inactive. – Francis Crick

39661. If the code does indeed have some logical foundation then it is legitimate to consider all the evidence, both good and bad, in any attempt to deduce it. – Francis Crick

39662. If, for example, all the codons are triplets, then in addition to the correct reading of the message, there are two incorrect readings which we shall obtain if we do not start the grouping into sets of three at the right place. – Francis Crick

39663. It has yet to be shown by direct biochemical methods, as opposed to the indirect genetic evidence mentioned earlier, that the code is indeed a triplet code. – Francis Crick

39664. It is one of the more striking generalizations of biochemistry – which surprisingly is hardly ever mentioned in the biochemical textbooks – that the twenty amino acids and the four bases, are, with minor reservations, the same throughout Nature. – Francis Crick

39665. I loved being a judge, and sometimes I miss the power of the gavel, but this is a lot more fun. – Catherine Crier

39666. My children are all doing just fine. The mountain dogs are great in this weather. The yorkies are freezing. – Catherine Crier

39667. The Petersons have not come forward in the press. Apparently they feel the media bears a large responsibility for Scott’s conviction. It may be a while before we hear anything from them. – Catherine Crier

39668. The judge gave Michael permission to issue a statement. I think Jackson went way outside the bounds of the judge’s intent. It will be interesting to see what the judge does tomorrow in court. – Catherine Crier

39669. The judge decided in this case that both the state and the defense would have the opportunity to respond to certain kinds of press. This is one such instance. – Catherine Crier

39670. Some people may have noticed the new computer shelf at the anchor desk. Rather than phone calls, we want to take real time e-mails, and we’ll be starting that very soon. – Catherine Crier

39671. Over the years you encounter just about every kind of crime. It doesn’t harden you, but you become capable of reporting on just about anything human beings can do. However, any time we’re dealing with the murder of a child it is always difficult. – Catherine Crier

39672. Obviously, the most memorable has a lot to do with the time spent on the matter, and the Westerfield and Peterson cases are up at the top of the list. – Catherine Crier

39673. It has been a wonderful five years. I’m excited about the many projects we’re working on as we move into year six, and I want to thank everyone for tuning in. We couldn’t do it without you! – Catherine Crier

39674. I think either Robert Blake wither pulled the trigger or hired someone to do it, but it will be a tough case to prove. I think there’s a very good chance he may take the stand, and that’s what I’m waiting for. – Catherine Crier

39675. I grew up training and showing Arabs all over the US. Three of my four were bred on my farm in Texas. Thanks everyone! Hope you’ll watch tomorrow. It’s going to be another great look back. – Catherine Crier

39676. I don’t think Amber taped Scott or testified for money, but the opportunity certainly presented itself. It makes me a bit uncomfortable, but at least she never sold the story before trial to the tabloids. – Catherine Crier

39677. I did not see any major issues other than the jury substitutions. I can’t know whether there’s a problem there, until I read the transcript from the in-chambers conference, when those jurors were excused. – Catherine Crier

39678. Donald Beardslee is set for execution this week in California. His crimes were about twenty years ago, but it will be the first execution in California in quite some time. – Catherine Crier

39679. I’ve heard rumors that the Petersons are writing a book. It will be very interesting to see what they have to say, but I don’t know anything about the Rochas. – Catherine Crier

39680. The nature of the shuttle was, we couldn’t put a crew escape system in it. – Robert Crippen

39681. The space shuttle has been a fantastic vehicle. It is unlike any other thing that we’ve ever built. Its capabilities have carried several hundred people into space. – Robert Crippen

39682. When you work really hard for something for a long time it’s almost impossible to believe that it’s coming true. – Robert Crippen

39683. We were only on orbit a little over two days, so we had no adverse effects from being weightless. – Robert Crippen

39684. We were flying on a winged vehicle that would do reentry different than we had ever done before. So all of those were firsts. Test pilots truly love firsts. – Robert Crippen

39685. You’re going very fast when you’re on orbit, going around the world once every hour and a half. – Robert Crippen

39686. The real pleasure was having the chance to enjoy being weightless, and the other was to spend some time looking out at this beautiful Earth that we’re all lucky to inhabit. – Robert Crippen

39687. Looking down at the Earth, you started to pick up a sense of speed much more than I had noticed on orbit. – Robert Crippen

39688. Living inside the shuttle was a little like camping out. We ended up sleeping in our seats. You had to pay attention to housekeeping, not get things too dirty. – Robert Crippen

39689. If you want to go into space first time on a new vehicle that’s never been flown, you want to go with a pro. – Robert Crippen

39690. I was selected to be an astronaut on a military program called the Manned Orbiting Laboratory back in ’67. That program got cancelled in ’69 and NASA ended up taking half of us. – Robert Crippen

39691. I thought it was going to take a lot more countdowns on the pad. We actually did scrub once, but I figured we’d scrub several times since it’s a pretty complicated vehicle. – Robert Crippen

39692. Having the opportunity to fly the first flight of something like a space shuttle was the ultimate test flight. – Robert Crippen

39693. We were on the dark side of the Earth when we started to see outside the window this soft pink glow, which is a lot of little angry ions out there going very fast. We were hitting them very fast. – Robert Crippen

39694. Selection of crews is always been somewhat of a mystery. – Robert Crippen

39695. No one will expect the British Government or the Government of India to give way to threats of violence, disorder and chaos; and, indeed, representatives of large sections of Indian opinion have expressly warned us that we must not do so. – Stafford Cripps

39696. We ask the great masses of India to be patient a short time longer, while the cause of freedom is being fought out, not because we want to delay, but because the hard facts of war make a complete change impossible at the moment. – Stafford Cripps

39697. Violent statements and threats cannot provide a solution to the problem. They can only exacerbate feeling and make a clash of forces inevitable. – Stafford Cripps

39698. Productive power is the foundation of a country’s economic strength. – Stafford Cripps

39699. We have pledged ourselves, and of this the United Nations of the world are witness, to give the fullest opportunity for attainment of self-government by India as soon as hostilities are over. I repeat that that is beyond doubt. – Stafford Cripps

39700. It is not yet too late for the Indian people to decide on rapid, ordered progress. I can assure them that the British people are as determined upon self-government for India as they are themselves. – Stafford Cripps

39701. India has indeed a great and free future before her, in which she can make her special contribution to the well-being of mankind. The first and indispensable part of that contribution is to work with the United Nations for the defeat of fascism and of brutal aggression. – Stafford Cripps

39702. Gandhi has more recently recognized the need for continuance of British, American and Chinese efforts in India and has suggested that these troops might remain by agreement with some new Indian Government. – Stafford Cripps

39703. Gandhi has asked that the British Government should walk out of India and leave the Indian people to settle differences among themselves, even if it means chaos and confusion. – Stafford Cripps

39704. Apart altogether from our own vital interests, we cannot and must not desert those other nations who have already gone through so much tragedy and suffering to defeat the evil designs of the Axis powers. – Stafford Cripps

39705. Many hard comments have been made on my efforts in India from the side of the Congress party, yet I feel content in the deep conviction that the offer I traveled 22,000 miles to discuss with Indian leaders was a real contribution to a solution of our differences. – Stafford Cripps

39706. Reasoned arguments and suggestions which make allowance for the full difficulties of the state of war that exists may help, and will always be listened to with respect and sympathy. – Stafford Cripps

39707. You fall out of your mother’s womb, you crawl across open country under fire, and drop into your grave. – Quentin Crisp

39708. The formula for achieving a successful relationship is simple: you should treat all disasters as if they were trivialities but never treat a triviality as if it were a disaster. – Quentin Crisp

39709. The consuming desire of most human beings is deliberately to plant their whole life in the hands of some other person. I would describe this method of searching for happiness as immature. Development of character consists solely in moving toward self-sufficiency. – Quentin Crisp

39710. The British do not expect happiness. I had the impression, all the time that I lived there, that they do not want to be happy; they want to be right. – Quentin Crisp

39719. The very purpose of existence is to reconcile the glowing opinion we hold of ourselves with the appalling things that other people think about us. – Quentin Crisp

39720. The young always have the same problem – how to rebel and conform at the same time. They have now solved this by defying their parents and copying one another. – Quentin Crisp

39721. There are three reasons for becoming a writer: the first is that you need the money; the second that you have something to say that you think the world should know; the third is that you can’t think what to do with the long winter evenings. – Quentin Crisp

39722. There is no need to do any housework at all. After the first four years the dirt doesn’t get any worse. – Quentin Crisp

39726. Manners are love in a cool climate. – Quentin Crisp

39727. Vice is its own reward. It is virtue which, if it is to be marketed with consumer appeal, must carry Green Shield stamps. – Quentin Crisp

39728. For flavor, instant sex will never supersede the stuff you have to peel and cook. – Quentin Crisp

39729. Love is not enough. It must be the foundation, the cornerstone- but not the complete structure. It is much too pliable, too yielding. – Quentin Crisp

39730. My mother protected me from the world and my father threatened me with it. – Quentin Crisp

39731. Abatement in the hostility of one’s enemies must never be thought to signify they have been won over. It only means that one has ceased to constitute a threat. – Quentin Crisp

39732. An autobiography is an obituary in serial form with the last installment missing. – Quentin Crisp

39733. Decency must be an even more exhausting state to maintain than its opposite. Those who succeed seem to need a stupefying amount of sleep. – Quentin Crisp

39737. However low a man sinks he never reaches the level of the police. – Quentin Crisp

39738. It is not the simple statement of facts that ushers in freedom; it is the constant repetition of them that has this liberating effect. Tolerance is the result not of enlightenment, but of boredom. – Quentin Crisp

39739. Living en famille provides the strongest motives for rudeness combined with the maximum opportunity for displaying it. – Quentin Crisp

39740. Fashion is what you adopt when you don’t know who you are. – Quentin Crisp

39741. It’s no good running a pig farm badly for 30 years while saying, ‘Really, I was meant to be a ballet dancer.’ By then, pigs will be your style. – Quentin Crisp

39742. I recommend limiting one’s involvement in other people’s lives to a pleasantly scant minimum. – Quentin Crisp

39743. It is explained that all relationships require a little give and take. This is untrue. Any partnership demands that we give and give and give and at the last, as we flop into our graves exhausted, we are told that we didn’t give enough. – Quentin Crisp

39744. Is not the whole world a vast house of assignation of which the filing system has been lost? – Quentin Crisp

39745. In an expanding universe, time is on the side of the outcast. Those who once inhabited the suburbs of human contempt find that without changing their address they eventually live in the metropolis. – Quentin Crisp

39746. If at first you don’t succeed, failure may be your style. – Quentin Crisp

39786. I would rather be beaten, and be a man, than to be elected and be a little puppy dog. – Davy Crockett

39787. I have suffered my self to be politically sacrificed to save my country from ruin and disgrace and if I am never a gain elected I will have the gratification to know that I have done my duty. – Davy Crockett

39788. We have the right as individuals to give away as much of our own money as we please in charity; but as members of Congress we have no right to appropriate a dollar of the public money. – Davy Crockett

39789. I have always supported measures and principles and not men. – Davy Crockett

39790. Heaven knows that I have done all that a mortal could do, to save the people, and the failure was not my fault, but the fault of others. – Davy Crockett

39791. Fame is like a shaved pig with a greased tail, and it is only after it has slipped through the hands of some thousands, that some fellow, by mere chance, holds on to it! – Davy Crockett

39792. Be always sure you are right – then go ahead. – Davy Crockett

39793. The first phase of American political history was characterized by the conflict between the Federalists and the Republicans, and it resulted in the complete triumph of the latter. – Herbert Croly

39794. The higher American patriotism, on the other hand, combines loyalty to historical tradition and precedent with the imaginative projection of an ideal national Promise. – Herbert Croly

39795. The interest which lay behind Federalism was that of well-to-do citizens in a stable political and social order, and this interest aroused them to favor and to seek some form of political organization which was capable of protecting their property and promoting its interest. – Herbert Croly

39796. The moral and social aspiration proper to American life is, of course, the aspiration vaguely described by the word democratic; and the actual achievement of the American nation points towards an adequate and fruitful definition of the democratic ideal. – Herbert Croly

39797. The more consciously democratic Americans became, however, the less they were satisfied with a conception of the Promised Land, which went no farther than a pervasive economic prosperity guaranteed by free institutions. – Herbert Croly

39798. The only fruitful promise of which the life of any individual or any nation can be possessed, is a promise determined by an ideal. – Herbert Croly

39799. The popular will cannot be taken for granted, it must be created. – Herbert Croly

39800. The years between 1800 and 1825 were distinguished, so far as our domestic development was concerned, by the growth of the Western pioneer Democracy in power and self-consciousness. – Herbert Croly

39801. The Constitution was the expression not only of a political faith, but also of political fears. It was wrought both as the organ of the national interest and as the bulwark of certain individual and local rights. – Herbert Croly

39802. When Jefferson and the Republicans rallied to the Union and to the existing Federalist organization, the fabric of traditional American democracy was almost completely woven. – Herbert Croly

39803. Unless the great majority of Americans not only have, but believe they have, a fair chance, the better American future will be dangerously compromised. – Herbert Croly

39804. To the European immigrant – that is, to the aliens who have been converted into Americans by the advantages of American life – the Promise of America has consisted largely in the opportunity which it offered of economic independence and prosperity. – Herbert Croly

39805. Let it be immediately added, however, that this economic independence and prosperity has always been absolutely associated in the American mind with free political institutions. – Herbert Croly

39806. The combination of Federalism and Republicanism which formed the substance of the system, did not constitute a progressive and formative political principle, but it pointed in the direction of a constructive formula. – Herbert Croly

39807. When the Promise of American life is conceived as a national ideal, whose fulfillment is a matter of artful and laborious work, the effect thereof is substantially to identify the national purpose with the social problem. – Herbert Croly

39808. American history contains much matter for pride and congratulation, and much matter for regret and humiliation. – Herbert Croly

39809. Democracy may mean something more than a theoretically absolute popular government, but it assuredly cannot mean anything less. – Herbert Croly

39810. Had it not been for the Atlantic Ocean and the virgin wilderness, the United States would never have been the Land of Promise. – Herbert Croly

39811. In Jefferson’s mind democracy was tantamount to extreme individualism. – Herbert Croly

39812. Of course, Americans have no monopoly of patriotic enthusiasm and good faith. – Herbert Croly

39813. Our country was thereby saved from the consequences of its distracting individualistic conception of democracy, and its merely legal conception of nationality. It was because the followers of Jackson and Douglas did fight for it, that the Union was preserved. – Herbert Croly

39814. So far I, at least, have no fault to find with implications of Hamilton’s Federalism, but unfortunately his policy was in certain other respects tainted with a more doubtful tendency. – Herbert Croly

39815. The adoption by Jefferson and the Republicans of the political structure of their opponents is of an importance hardly inferior to that of the adoption of the Constitution by the states. – Herbert Croly

39816. The American economic, political, and social organization has given to its citizens the benefits of material prosperity, political liberty, and a wholesome natural equality; and this achievement is a gain, not only to Americans, but to the world and to civilization. – Herbert Croly

39817. The average American is nothing if not patriotic. – Herbert Croly

39818. I am not a prophet in any sense of the word, and I entertain an active and intense dislike of the foregoing mixture of optimism, fatalism, and conservatism. – Herbert Croly

39819. We have ourselves to answer for. – Jennie June Croly

39820. The attitude we have towards our personal pets as opposed to the animals that suffer under the factory farm is hypocritical and delusional. – James Cromwell

39821. We don’t need to eat anyone who would run, swim, or fly away if he could. – James Cromwell

39822. Pets are humanizing. They remind us we have an obligation and responsibility to preserve and nurture and care for all life. – James Cromwell

39823. But if you really want to learn about life, get a cat. The way I think people should relate to animals is with a cat. Because the world is his. – James Cromwell

39824. No one rises so high as he who knows not whither he is going. – Oliver Cromwell

39825. What is all our histories, but God showing himself, shaking and trampling on everything that he has not planted. – Oliver Cromwell

39826. We are Englishmen; that is one good fact. – Oliver Cromwell

39827. The State, in choosing men to serve it, takes no notice of their opinions. If they be willing faithfully to serve it, that satisfies. – Oliver Cromwell

39828. God made them as stubble to our swords. – Oliver Cromwell

39829. Subtlety may deceive you; integrity never will. – Oliver Cromwell

39830. Put your trust in God; but be sure to keep your powder dry. – Oliver Cromwell

39831. Not only strike while the iron is hot, but make it hot by striking. – Oliver Cromwell

39832. Who can love to walk in the dark? But providence doth often so dispose. – Oliver Cromwell

39833. A few honest men are better than numbers. – Oliver Cromwell

39834. Nature can do more than physicians. – Oliver Cromwell

39835. Keep your faith in God, but keep your powder dry. – Oliver Cromwell

39836. I would have been glad to have lived under my wood side, and to have kept a flock of sheep, rather than to have undertaken this government. – Oliver Cromwell

39837. I had rather have a plain, russet-coated Captain, that knows what he fights for, and loves what he knows, than that which you call a Gentle-man and is nothing else. – Oliver Cromwell

39838. He who stops being better stops being good. – Oliver Cromwell

39839. Do not trust the cheering, for those persons would shout as much if you or I were going to be hanged. – Oliver Cromwell

39840. Necessity has no law. – Oliver Cromwell

39841. I beseech you, in the bowels of Christ, think it possible you may be mistaken. – Oliver Cromwell

39842. Oh, justice is what you’re threatened with. – Thomas Cromwell

39843. Without amendments we would never even have had the Bill of Rights. – Adrian Cronauer

39844. The electronic spectrum is the only natural resource in which there’s no such thing as private property rights. You can’t own a piece of the spectrum. – Adrian Cronauer

39845. The concept that you cannot own the airwaves has caused far more harm than good. – Adrian Cronauer

39846. The American flag represents all of us and all the values we hold sacred. – Adrian Cronauer

39847. Worrying that banning flag desecration would inhibit free speech reveals a misunderstanding of the flag’s fundamental nature. – Adrian Cronauer

39848. Our flag is not just one of many political points of view. Rather, the flag is a symbol of our national unity. – Adrian Cronauer

39849. One of the things I learned in law school is that there’s nothing wrong or undesirable or dishonorable or destructive about amending the Constitution. – Adrian Cronauer

39850. It’s not written in the Constitution or anything else…. Congress, just out of the clear blue sky, said the airwaves belong to the people, which means, in essence, that it belongs to Congress. – Adrian Cronauer

39851. It is the will of the American people that we have a right to protect our flag and this can only be accomplished by passing a Constitutional amendment. – Adrian Cronauer

39852. I was faced more with apathy than opposition. – Adrian Cronauer

39853. Giving people what they want isn’t just good radio; it’s also the right way to run a country. – Adrian Cronauer

39854. A corollary is that, when laws are out of touch with the people, those laws can and should be changed – from the most simple local regulations to the highest law of the land, our federal Constitution. – Adrian Cronauer

39855. Our nation is built on the bedrock principle that governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed. – Adrian Cronauer

39856. Martin Luther King, Jr. didn’t carry just a piece of cloth to symbolize his belief in racial equality; he carried the American flag. – Adrian Cronauer

39857. When you’re in the muck you can only see muck. If you somehow manage to float above it, you still see the muck but you see it from a different perspective. And you see other things too. That’s the consolation of philosophy. – David Cronenberg

39858. If you put yourself in a group of people you cannot work with it’s obviously going to be a disaster. – David Cronenberg

39859. Let’s put it this way, when I was casting, I cast Viggo first and then found someone who could play his wife, rather than the other way around. So for me he’s still the lead character. – David Cronenberg

39860. Nah, I’ve done sex scenes before, you know, like in video. – David Cronenberg

39861. Of course for many years directors have had to go on the road with their movies and promote them and I’ve done that since the beginning. So that’s not new but the forms of it are different such as with the internet. – David Cronenberg

39862. Re-writing is different from writing. Original writing is very difficult. – David Cronenberg

39863. So not only can you not imagine dying, you can’t really imagine existence before you were born. – David Cronenberg

39864. The filmmaking process is a very personal one to me, I mean it really is a personal kind of communication. It’s not as though its a study of fear or any of that stuff. – David Cronenberg

39865. The problem with doing a schlocky or big budget studio film is that it wouldn’t actually be fun for me. It wouldn’t be exciting. – David Cronenberg

39866. The process of making a movie has expanded in terms of effort and time for the director, doing commentaries for the DVD for example, finishing deleted scenes so they could be on the DVD, and doing things like a web blog. – David Cronenberg

39867. I’m just observing the world. I was born into it, like you were, and then I found out there were some really disturbing aspects to being alive, like the fact that you weren’t going to be alive forever – that bothered me. – David Cronenberg

39868. Well I don’t think sex and violence have ever stopped a movie from being mainstream. – David Cronenberg

39869. Technology is us. There is no separation. It’s a pure expression of human creative will. It doesn’t exist anywhere else in the universe. I’m rather sure of that. – David Cronenberg

39870. You have to believe in God before you can say there are things that man was not meant to know. I don’t think there’s anything man wasn’t meant to know. There are just some stupid things that people shouldn’t do. – David Cronenberg

39871. You know, there’s a saying in art that in order to be universal you must be specific. So I think every artist feels that he is dealing with specific things but that it also has significance universally. – David Cronenberg

39872. You’re seeing me develop, not only as a filmmaker if you’ve seen my earlier films, but you’re seeing me kind of learn how to be a human, how my philosophy has evolved. – David Cronenberg

39873. We are at a major epoch in human history, which is that we don’t need sex to recreate the race. You can have babies without sex. This is the first time in human history that has been true, and it means, for example, we could do some extraordinary things. – David Cronenberg

39874. Each kid has a different level of expertise and some of them are very raw and inexperienced and some are incredibly mature and experienced. So you just have to go with what they are rather than have some abstract technique that you’re going to try to apply to them. – David Cronenberg

39875. The more unique your film is and unusual it is and difficult it is, the harder it is to get it financed. That’s why a lot of good filmmakers are doing television. They do HBO movies. – David Cronenberg

39876. I think of horror films as art, as films of confrontation. Films that make you confront aspects of your own life that are difficult to face. Just because you’re making a horror film doesn’t mean you can’t make an artful film. – David Cronenberg

39877. Anybody who comes to the cinema is bringing they’re whole sexual history, their literary history, their movie literacy, their culture, their language, their religion, whatever they’ve got. I can’t possibly manipulate all of that, nor do I want to. – David Cronenberg

39878. But when you’re writing a script – for me anyway – you have to sort of create an enforced innocence. You have to divest yourself of worrying about a lot of stuff like what movies are hot, what movies are not hot, what the budget of this movie might be. – David Cronenberg

39879. But with my last film, Spider it was agony. The money was always disappearing, nobody got paid, it was very difficult – and it’s very distracting from the process of making the movie, of course. So I think things have been getting harder and harder. – David Cronenberg

39880. Do you remember when you found out you wouldn’t live forever? People don’t talk about this, but everybody had to go through it because you’re not born with that knowledge. – David Cronenberg

39881. Even Hitchcock liked to think of himself as a puppeteer who was manipulating the strings of his audience and making them jump. He liked to think he had that kind of control. – David Cronenberg

39882. Everybody’s a mad scientist, and life is their lab. We’re all trying to experiment to find a way to live, to solve problems, to fend off madness and chaos. – David Cronenberg

39883. I don’t have a moral plan, I’m a Canadian. – David Cronenberg

39884. I see technology as being an extension of the human body. – David Cronenberg

39885. I never thought I was doing the same thing as directors like John Carpenter, George Romero, and sometimes even Hitchcock, even though I’ve been sometimes compared to those other guys. We’re after different game. – David Cronenberg

39886. Censors tend to do what only psychotics do: they confuse reality with illusion. – David Cronenberg

39887. I don’t mind writing so I didn’t find that difficult, it’s just a question of finding the time to do it. I kind of like the direct connection with the fans actually, it’s pretty neat. – David Cronenberg

39888. I also think the relationship I have with my audience is a lot more complex than what Hitchcock seemed to want his to be – although I think he had more going on under the surface as well. – David Cronenberg

39889. For me, the first fact of human existence is the human body. But if you embrace the reality of the human body, you embrace mortality, and that is a very difficult thing for anything to do because the self-conscious mind cannot imagine non-existence. It’s impossible to do. – David Cronenberg

39890. All stereotypes turn out to be true. This is a horrifying thing about life. All those things you fought against as a youth: you begin to realize they’re stereotypes because they’re true. – David Cronenberg

39891. For example I don’t work with William Hurt the same way that I will work with Viggo. They’re different guys and they work in different ways. So a good sensitive director has his general style and technique and personality that he uses but you don’t impose that on the actors. – David Cronenberg

39892. On even the worst days, when nothing was working at the lab, I knew that at home I would find warmth, peace, companionship, and encouragement. As a consequence, the next day would surely be better. – James Cronin

39893. While at Chicago my interest in the new field of particle physics was stimulated by a course given by Gell- Mann, who was developing his ideas about Strangeness at the time. – James Cronin

39894. I did a thesis in experimental nuclear physics under the direction of Samuel K. Allison. – James Cronin

39895. The long-lived K meson was discovered at Brookhaven. – James Cronin

39896. The Director of the Laboratory, George Reynolds, was most supportive of my efforts to work independently. There followed for ten years a glorious time for research. – James Cronin

39897. Our whole family assembles in Chicago at Christmas and usually in Aspen in the summer. – James Cronin

39898. One of the greatest joys in my life was giving a lecture in French at the College de France. – James Cronin

39899. When the violation of parity was discovered I began a series of electronic experiments to investigate parity violation in hyperon decays. – James Cronin

39900. My real education began when I entered the University of Chicago in September 1951 as a graduate student. – James Cronin

39901. My primary and secondary education was provided by the Highland Park Public School System. – James Cronin

39902. My mother, Dorothy Watson, had met my father in a Greek class at Northwestern University. – James Cronin

39903. In addition to the research, I enjoyed learning French and assimilating the culture of another country. – James Cronin

39904. I was much involved in the development of the spark chamber as a practical research tool. – James Cronin

39905. During this period, with a series of excellent students, we further studied hyperon decays. – James Cronin

39906. In 1971 I returned to the University of Chicago as Professor of Physics. – James Cronin

39907. A season is a season, regardless of the number of games. – Joe Cronin

39908. I used to pull rank and wait until the wind was blowing out. – Joe Cronin

39909. It’s good fun, yes, but when we play, we take it seriously and want to do well. – Hansie Cronje

39910. We didn’t sleep last week – we literally didn’t sleep – because we’ve been so busy with the book. – Hansie Cronje

39911. I love surfing more than cricket, more interesting and you meet great people. – Hansie Cronje

39912. The very quick and high sales of the book caught us off guard, but fortunately we got the second edition from the printers at the end of last week and the shops should now be stocked again. – Hansie Cronje

39913. We really tried hard not to make it a cricket book, it appeals to a much wider community. – Hansie Cronje

39914. I realized I made a big mistake and if I could have it over again, I would do it so much differently. – Hansie Cronje

39915. I always played to win. – Hansie Cronje

39916. If the coach is good, I don’t think a psychologist is needed. – Hansie Cronje

39917. I think the toughest part for me was when Herschelle said that he obviously looked up to his Captain, and he felt if his Captain could do it, then so could he, and that to me was when it really struck home. – Hansie Cronje

39918. Objective journalism and an opinion column are about as similar as the Bible and Playboy magazine. – Walter Cronkite

39919. When you’re bringing in a fairly unknown candidate challenging a sitting president, the population needs a lot more information than reduced coverage provides. – Walter Cronkite

39920. We are not educated well enough to perform the necessary act of intelligently selecting our leaders. – Walter Cronkite

39921. There’s a little more ego involved in these jobs than people might realize. – Walter Cronkite

39922. There is no such thing as a little freedom. Either you are all free, or you are not free. – Walter Cronkite

39923. The perils of duck hunting are great – especially for the duck. – Walter Cronkite

39924. Our job is only to hold up the mirror – to tell and show the public what has happened. – Walter Cronkite

39925. In seeking truth you have to get both sides of a story. – Walter Cronkite

39926. And that’s the way it is. – Walter Cronkite

39927. The great sadness of my life is that I never achieved the hour newscast, which would not have been twice as good as the half-hour newscast, but many times as good. – Walter Cronkite

39928. America’s health care system is neither healthy, caring, nor a system. – Walter Cronkite

39929. I’ve gone from the most trusted man in America to one of the most debated. – Walter Cronkite

39930. Dan Rather and I just aren’t especially chummy. – Walter Cronkite

39931. Everything is being compressed into tiny tablets. You take a little pill of news every day – 23 minutes – and that’s supposed to be enough. – Walter Cronkite

39932. I can’t imagine a person becoming a success who doesn’t give this game of life everything he’s got. – Walter Cronkite

39933. I think it is absolutely essential in a democracy to have competition in the media, a lot of competition, and we seem to be moving away from that. – Walter Cronkite

39934. I think somebody ought to do a survey as to how many great, important men have quit to spend time with their families who spent any more time with their family. – Walter Cronkite

39935. I want to say that probably 24 hours after I told CBS that I was stepping down at my 65th birthday, I was already regretting it. And I regretted it every day since. – Walter Cronkite

39936. I don’t mind playing absolute bastards… I just don’t want to play the grouch. – Hume Cronyn

39937. The whole business of marshaling one’s energies becomes more and more important as one grows older. – Hume Cronyn

39938. The white men in the East are like birds. They are hatching out their eggs every year, and there is not room enough in the East, and they must go elsewhere; and they come out West, as you have seen them coming for the last few years. – George Crook

39939. During the engagement I tried to throw a strong force through the canon, but I was obliged to use it elsewhere before it had gotten to the supposed location of the village. – George Crook

39940. When I jerked it out the head remained in my leg, where it remains still. There were a couple of inches of blood on the shaft of the arrow when I pulled it out. – George Crook

39941. But we must not try to drive the Indians too fast in effecting these changes. – George Crook

39942. All the tribes tell the same story. They are surrounded on all sides, the game is destroyed or driven away; they are left to starve, and there remains but one thing for them to do – fight while they can. – George Crook

39943. First, take the government of the Indians out of politics; second, let the laws of the Indians be the same as those of the whites; third, give the Indian the ballot. – George Crook

39944. Give these Indians little farms, survey them, let them put fences around them, let them have their own horses, cows, sheep, things that they can call their own, and it will do away with tribal Indians. – George Crook

39945. I at once commenced the ascent through a shower of arrows. – George Crook

39946. If you will investigate all the Indian troubles, you will find that there is something wrong of this nature at the bottom of all of them, something relating to the supplies, or else a tardy and broken faith on the part of the general government. – George Crook

39947. It demonstrates to his simple mind in the most positive manner that we have no prejudice against him on account of his race, and that while he behaves himself he will be treated the same as a white man. – George Crook

39948. It has been my aim throughout present operations to afford the greatest amount of protection to life and property interests, and troops have been stationed accordingly. – George Crook

39949. The buffalo is all gone, and an Indian can’t catch enough jack rabbits to subsist himself and his family, and then, there aren’t enough jack rabbits to catch. What are they to do? – George Crook

39950. The great mistake these people make is that they go to looking after the spiritual welfare of the Indians before securing their physical. – George Crook

39951. The Indian is a human being. – George Crook

39952. We must not try to force him to take civilization immediately in its complete form, but under just laws, guaranteeing to Indians equal civil laws, the Indian question, a source of such dishonor to our country and of shame to true patriots, will soon be a thing of the past. – George Crook

39953. When once an Indian sees that his food is secure, he does not care what the chief or any one else says. – George Crook

39954. It may be, however, that I am too much wedded to my own views in the matter, and as I have spent nearly eight years of the hardest work of my life in this department, I respectfully request that I may now be relieved from its command. – George Crook

39955. I spend days with writers’ block. It is a problem. – Mackenzie Crook

39956. Recently I’ve been collecting Star Wars figures again. When I was a kid I couldn’t afford them. Now I can so I’ve been buying them and keeping them in their box for a later date when they’ll be worth a lot of money. – Mackenzie Crook

39957. My son thinks I’m hilarious, but he’s only 1. – Mackenzie Crook

39958. It’s not a very secure industry. I’ve spoken to a couple of people recently who had a successful TV show and then found themselves absolutely skint and struggling to find a job. – Mackenzie Crook

39959. I like the outdoors and the natural world. Environmental issues. – Mackenzie Crook

39960. I still draw a lot though. Ballpoint pen is my preferred medium. – Mackenzie Crook

39961. I like the fact you can spend two hours setting up a scene that will only last a couple of seconds. And I like just sitting around and dozing between scenes! – Mackenzie Crook

39962. I haven’t got a car or a house. I’ve got a wife, but I didn’t pay for her! I spend all my money on my glorious wife. She’s here with a knife at my throat! – Mackenzie Crook

39963. I don’t have much choice these days in how I have my hair. – Mackenzie Crook

39964. All the parts I get offered are character and comedy parts, and I probably wouldn’t get them if I had a different face. So I’m glad I have a comedy face. – Mackenzie Crook

39965. I’d like to go back to standup. I don’t like to think I’ve done my last gig. At the moment it terrifies me, I get really nervous. It’s a great buzz when it goes well. – Mackenzie Crook

39966. My favorite moment of the whole thing was when John Belushi suggested that I get a hold of all the blues records I could so I could research the music. – Steve Cropper

39967. Garry Trudeau put me in the Doonesbury strip many years ago. So I’ve been a cartoon once. – Steve Cropper

39968. I could have gone on to be an engineer full time, except that there was more demand for my playing. But the love of working the board never leaves you. – Steve Cropper

39969. I had been raised on country and western in Missouri. But gospel was great. – Steve Cropper

39970. I lived in a hotel across the street from Disneyland for a month. – Steve Cropper

39971. Lorne finally said, Do the Blues Brothers thing. The response was amazing. People went nuts. – Steve Cropper

39972. Memphis is in a very lucky position on the map. Everything just gravitated to Memphis for years. – Steve Cropper

39973. Most studios in Memphis had a house set of drums; the drummers just brought their own sticks. – Steve Cropper

39974. My ears won’t fool me. Even when I do a session on digital, we still warm it up somewhere in the process, in mastering or mixing, running the signal through some tubes somewhere. – Steve Cropper

39975. There is nothing in the world I wouldn’t do for Hope, and there is nothing he wouldn’t do for me… We spend our lives doing nothing for each other. – Bing Crosby

39976. I think popular music in this country is one of the few things in the twentieth century that have made giant strides in reverse. – Bing Crosby

39977. We’d dub the one that came off best into the final transcription. It gave us a chance to ad lib as much as we wanted, knowing that excess ad libbing could be sliced from the final product. – Bing Crosby

39978. Unless we make Christmas an occasion to share our blessings, all the snow in Alaska won’t make it ‘white’. – Bing Crosby

39979. My golf is woeful but I will never surrender. – Bing Crosby

39980. I think probably the one trait that would concern me about brother Bing would be his lack of responsibility. – Bob Crosby

39981. But just as I was ready to call it quits, I got the necessary money from a third party, who had been instructed by Bing to help me out, without letting me know where the help came from. – Bob Crosby

39982. He wanted me to learn to stand on my own feet, and to make it impossible for me to thank him. – Bob Crosby

39986. Describing Woodstock as the “big bang,” I think that’s a great way to describe it, because the important thing about it wasn’t how many people were there or that it was a lot of truly wonderful music that got played. – David Crosby
