41641. Well, I just can’t play the game anymore. I’m 63 years old, and I’ve been in the business for 40 years now. I take good advice and direction really well, but I don’t need somebody that finished college two years ago to come in and tell me what I should be recording. – Charlie Daniels

41642. We didn’t have a garage to rehearse in. We had to aggravate the folks in the house. But I got a chance to play in a beer joint, and that’s how it started. – Charlie Daniels

41643. We can get rid of red tape. – Charlie Daniels

41644. The funny thing is, the music that I’m writing now is probably some of the most cutting edge we’ve ever done. The music that I’m thinking about putting on our next album. – Charlie Daniels

41645. My next project will be a Christian album, another one. I wrote the songs for the ones you’re referring to, but I want to do some of my old gospel favorites. That’s what my next album’s going to be. – Charlie Daniels

41646. I just thank God I can make a living doing something I enjoy as much as I do playing music. – Charlie Daniels

41647. Country music has changed tremendously, so what now is considered country was not considered country at that time. We were doing stuff that probably could have been called country music today, but would certainly have not have fit in at that time. – Charlie Daniels

41648. Any accolades that anybody puts toward this band really makes me feel good, because I have devoted such a big part of my life to this band, making it what I want it to be. – Charlie Daniels

41649. A friend of mine, that I had known for some time, came up one day with an old guitar. I don’t know where he got it, I don’t know how long he’d had it, but he knew about two chords on it. He proceeded to teach them to me, and then we proceeded to go crazy over music. – Charlie Daniels

41650. I should be the one to say what I do. It’s just not done that way anymore in Nashville, and I can’t do it the other way. That’s how our record label came about. – Charlie Daniels

41651. I never said, ‘I’m going to be a big star.’ I said, ‘I’m going to be a good actor.’ And that took the pressure off. – Jeff Daniels

41652. I never starved. And you know, whatever talent I have, I’ve relied on that, versus image or star. – Jeff Daniels

41653. I’m the guy to call. Look at the resume. I have kids of my own. I have dogs. – Jeff Daniels

41654. Dullness is the only crime for which an editor ought to be hung. – Josephus Daniels

41664. When they call the slightest spending reductions ‘painful’, we will say ‘If government spending prevents pain, why are we suffering so much of it?’ And ‘If you want to experience real pain, just stay on the track we are on.’ – Mitch Daniels

41665. When business leaders ask me what they can do for Indiana, I always reply: ‘Make money. Go make money. That’s the first act of corporate citizenship. If you do that, you’ll have to hire someone else, and you’ll have enough profit to help one of those non-profits we’re so proud of.’ – Mitch Daniels

41666. We say that anytime budgets are balanced and an ample savings account has been set aside, government should just stop collecting taxes. Better to leave that money in the pockets of those who earned it, than to let it burn a hole, as it always does, in the pockets of government. – Mitch Daniels

41667. We believe that government works for the benefit of private life, and not the other way around. – Mitch Daniels

41668. We Hoosiers hold to some quaint notions. Some might say we ‘cling’ to them, though not out of fear or ignorance. We believe in paying our bills. We have kept our state in the black throughout the recent unpleasantness, while cutting rather than raising taxes, by practicing an old tribal ritual – we spend less money than we take in. – Mitch Daniels

41669. We don’t have a prayer of defeating the Red Threat of our generation without a long boom of almost unprecedented duration. – Mitch Daniels

41670. We believe it wrong ever to take a dollar from a free citizen without a very necessary public purpose, because each such taking diminishes the freedom to spend that dollar as its owner would prefer. – Mitch Daniels

41671. We designed both our state employee health plans and the one we created for low-income Hoosiers as Health Savings Accounts, and now in the tens of thousands these citizens are proving that they are fully capable of making smart, consumerist choices about their own health care. – Mitch Daniels

41672. Finally, treat domestic energy production as the economic necessity it is and the job creator it can be. Drill, and frack, and lease, and license, unleash in every way the jobs potential in the enormous energy resources we have been denying ourselves. – Mitch Daniels

41673. We are tasked to rebuild not just a damaged economy, and a debt-ridden balance sheet, but to do so by drawing forth the best that is in our fellow citizens. If we would summon the best from Americans, we must assume the best about them. If we don’t believe in Americans, who will? – Mitch Daniels

41674. Our main task is not to see that people of great wealth add to it, but that those without much money have a greater chance to earn some. – Mitch Daniels

41675. The failure of national economic policy is costing us more than jobs; it has begun to weaken that uniquely American spirit of risk-taking, large ambition, and optimism about the future. We must rally them now to bold departures that rebuild our national morale as well as our material prosperity. – Mitch Daniels

41676. The perverse presumption that places the burden of proof on the challenger of spending must be inverted, back to the rule that applies elsewhere in life: ‘Prove to me why we should.’ – Mitch Daniels

41677. And before our current legislature adjourns, we intend to become the first state of full and true choice by saying to every low and middle-income Hoosier family, if you think a non-government school is the right one for your child, you’re as entitled to that option as any wealthy family; here’s a voucher, go sign up. – Mitch Daniels

41678. The state of our state needs serious attention. – Mitch Daniels

41679. But if our nation goes over a financial Niagara, we won’t have much strength and, eventually, we won’t have peace. We are currently borrowing the entire defense budget from foreign investors. Within a few years, we will be spending more on interest payments than on national security. That is not, as our military friends say, a ‘robust strategy.’ – Mitch Daniels

41680. We are taking challenges and turning them into opportunities by developing homegrown, local energy production to become independent from foreign sources. – Mitch Daniels

41681. I refer, of course, to the debts our nation has amassed for itself over decades of indulgence. It is the new Red Menace, this time consisting of ink. We can debate its origins endlessly and search for villains on ideological grounds, but the reality is pure arithmetic. – Mitch Daniels

41682. Our morbidly obese federal government needs not just behavior modification but bariatric surgery. – Mitch Daniels

41683. Government does not create jobs, it only creates the conditions that make jobs more or less likely. – Mitch Daniels

41684. If freedom’s best friends cannot unify around a realistic, actionable program of fundamental change, one that attracts and persuades a broad majority of our fellow citizens, big change will not come. – Mitch Daniels

41685. Our educational results lag behind other states, and other nations, but worse still, behind the potential of the kids and the devoted teachers in our classrooms. – Mitch Daniels

41686. No enterprise, small or large, public or private, can remain self-governing, let alone successful, so deeply in hock to others as we are about to be. – Mitch Daniels

41687. If we don’t believe in Americans, who will? I do believe. I’ve seen it in the people of our very typical corner of the nation. – Mitch Daniels

41688. If our nation goes over a financial Niagara, we won’t have much strength and, eventually, we won’t have peace. We are currently borrowing the entire defense budget from foreign investors. Within a few years, we will be spending more on interest payments than on national security. That is not, as our military friends say, a ‘robust strategy.’ – Mitch Daniels

41689. Sure, things could always have been done better, but I just wish people would drop their political hammers for a few weeks, as happened in 2001, and work on the problem at hand. – Mitch Daniels

41690. So tonight I propose one more step that I would rather not propose. I ask the most fortunate among us, those citizens earning over $100,000 per year, for one year, to pay an additional one percent on the income they receive. – Mitch Daniels

41691. Every citizen who stops smoking, or loses a few pounds, or starts managing his chronic disease with real diligence, is caulking a crack for the benefit of us all. – Mitch Daniels

41692. Among the weeds choking out growth and good government are the hundreds of boards, commissions, and advisory committees that have sprouted over the years. They devour time, money, and energy far beyond any real contribution they make. – Mitch Daniels

41693. All great enterprises have a pearl of faith at their core, and this must be ours: that Americans are still a people born to liberty. That they retain the capacity for self-government. That, addressed as free-born, autonomous men and women of God-given dignity, they will rise yet again to drive back a mortal enemy. – Mitch Daniels

41694. When people say to me don’t the years go fast I have to be honest and say that whereas I don’t realise where they go in the long term, I pack so much into a year it seems to take forever. – Paul Daniels

41702. I grew up not far from where Motown was founded, maybe 300 miles from Detroit and I’ve always liked – I used to like the way they made records. I still do, I just haven’t had a chance to hear as much. They used to entertain me. – Rick Danko

41703. As time goes on we get closer to that American Dream of there being a pie cut up and shared. Usually greed and selfishness prevent that and there is always one bad apple in every barrel. – Rick Danko

41704. By doing something positive in this world, you’re helping people and the future. We’re all trying to help the world… make it a better place to live. We’re actually still changing the world, aren’t we? – Rick Danko

41705. After convincing myself that was maybe you should at least help out your neighborhood, I really started to think about it later on in life. – Rick Danko

41706. Country artists, I met a lot of them when I was five, six years old. I had an uncle who was a country and western singer and I met Lefty Frizzell when I was five or six years old in those shows that would come through Toronto from Nashville. – Rick Danko

41707. Getting older, I realize I’ve had a very fortunate life. I’ve had a budget that’s allowed me to do just about any silly little thing the mind could conjure up, and I’m still alive and here. – Rick Danko

41708. I am using soybean based ink, which is recyclable. – Rick Danko

41709. Also a portion of my sales go directly to Greenpeace. – Rick Danko

41710. I like a lot of bass players. I like a lot of tuba players too. – Rick Danko

41711. I love to play; a stage is a safe place for me to be. It’s not that way for most folks, but I’d be lost without it. – Rick Danko

41712. I saw Ronnie Hawkins play near my hometown, Port Dover, Ontario, and I saw him play there on New Year’s Eve and the following spring I booked myself to be his opening act on maybe five shows, and he hired me after the first night. – Rick Danko

41713. I’m here in the mountains, in the foothills of the Catskills. – Rick Danko

41714. Paul Butterfield and I had a band together at one point. – Rick Danko

41715. The Band is sounding real good. We’ve been doing some dates together and they’ve been going well. – Rick Danko

41716. The Band was always famous for its retirements; we’d go and play and get a little petty cash together, and then not see each other till it was time to fill our pockets up again. – Rick Danko

41717. I started working with Bob in 1965. We did go through a lot of changes from 65 to 74, a lot of changes. By 1974, everything had straightened itself out. – Rick Danko

41718. The pressures, I don’t really like to think about the pressures, I like to solve them, you know what I mean. I could sit here and complain about pressures but nobody wants to hear about pressures. – Rick Danko

41719. When CD technology first came out, it was just so much waste. – Rick Danko

41720. When I used to play nightclubs, you had to play Top 40 or favorite oldies that maybe people could relate to. – Rick Danko

41721. When I was a kid a growing up in Ontario, Canada, Lake Erie was so polluted, I never thought it would ever, EVER be turned around where they could start cleaning it out in my lifetime! – Rick Danko

41722. When I was younger, I had big visions of changing the world. – Rick Danko

41723. You have to remember the band played from 1960 to 1965, every night. You get into a rut playing nightclubs every night, and you didn’t want to run it into the ground. – Rick Danko

41724. You put a song on the record or on tape and you stop singing it. You just don’t sit around and sing it anymore unless you’re performing. That’s kind of sad. – Rick Danko

41725. Then, there was Greenpeace, I remember that when they first started out with the boats in the waters, and the guys in the boats between the whales and the boats that will hunting the whales with spear guns. – Rick Danko

41726. Accusations are made directly to Rome about theologians from persons who are not theologians. Some of these accusations are anonymous. The local bishop should be the one to relate to theologians to determine orthodoxy. – Godfried Danneels

41727. Global warming has melted the polar ice caps, raised the levels of the oceans and flooded the earth’s great cities. Despite its evident prosperity, New Jersey is scarcely Utopia. – Godfried Danneels

41728. Artificial Intelligence leaves no doubt that it wants its audiences to enter a realm of pure fantasy when it identifies one of the last remaining islands of civilization as New Jersey. – Godfried Danneels

41729. I prepared my intervention the night before I spoke. As it happened, there were about 44 cardinals who wished to speak but could not because there was not enough time. I was one of the last to speak. – Godfried Danneels

41730. Our theology is still in a time of crisis, and I think this will last for some years more. – Godfried Danneels

41731. Rome should sometimes intervene and say this or that is not in conformity with the Catholic faith. Theologians should understand that. Some theologians go too far, for example, reducing the Catholic faith to a universal philosophy. – Godfried Danneels

41732. The problem for Rome, then, is how and when the intervention should be done with a sense of the possibility of going too far in limiting the freedom of theologians. This is not an easy time – neither for Rome nor for the theologians. – Godfried Danneels

41733. The word survivor suggests someone who has emerged alive from a plane crash or a natural disaster. But the word can also refer to the loved ones of murder victims, and this was the sense in which it was used at a four-day conference in early June at Boston College. – Godfried Danneels

41734. There is a very well-defined procedure that allows the Vatican to raise issues with a particular theologian about something that does not appear in conformity with the Catholic faith. It is not always easy to make this determination. – Godfried Danneels

41735. When someone is HIV-positive and his partner says, I want to have sexual relations with you, he doesn’t have to do that. But when he does, he has to use a condom. – Godfried Danneels

41736. At synods, I usually wait about a week before I speak. First I listen. I feel the temperature. I listen to what has been said, what has not been said, and what I think needs to be said at that point. – Godfried Danneels

41737. Before Vatican II, in theology, as in other areas, the discipline was fixed. After the council there has been a revolution – a chaotic revolution – with free discussion on everything. There is now no common theology or philosophy as there was before. – Godfried Danneels

41738. I’ve kept my sanity in this business by trying out for a role and then going home and trying to forget about it. – Blythe Danner

41742. I think one of my very favorite films of all time was with Peter Sellers when he played Chauncey, the gardener. Being There. – Blythe Danner

41744. I was raised in a time where children were still seen and not heard basically, so I think a lot of us in my generation went the other way and just tried to be as much more liberal and open and we’re still paying for it. – Blythe Danner

41745. Actors are very generous. – Blythe Danner

41746. I’ve been very lucky. I wanted to be an actress, but I didn’t really have the drive to sell myself. Fortunately I had a terrific agent in New York who kept me going from job to job. – Blythe Danner

41747. Acting is really only part of my life. I’m addicted to it. – Blythe Danner

41748. It was in high school that I first became interested in acting. We put on lots of plays. – Blythe Danner

41750. Maybe subconsciously I’ve kept activism separate from acting because it’s important to me in a more profound way. – Blythe Danner

41751. Mostly, I spend my time being a mother to my two children, working in my organic garden, raising masses of sweet peas, being passionately involved in conservation, recycling and solar energy. – Blythe Danner

41755. I’ve always just adored music. It’s my first love, really. I admire and respect people in the music business. You really have to work hard and diligently. Sometimes actors can be lazy and get away with it, but you can’t do that if you’re a musician. – Blythe Danner

41756. I feel a little guilty only being an actor. – Blythe Danner

41757. Limit to courage? There is no limit to courage. – Gabriele D’Annunzio

41771. We need to start looking at having a way of managing the whole ecosystem, because you can’t pick away at it piece by piece, you have to truly start being coordinated and managing our resources as a system. We haven’t gotten to that point yet. – Ted Danson

41772. We’re not trying to reinvent the wheel; for any environmental organization to claim sole responsibility for any kind of victory is insane, because everybody attacks these problems as a group. – Ted Danson

41773. Years ago, we all talked about recycling and not dumping things down your drain and all of that, but talking doesn’t help much. Basically, it’s going to have to be legislation because the impact is so huge and diversified. – Ted Danson

41782. I think Haiti is a place that suffers so much from neglect that people only want to hear about it when It’s at its extreme. And that’s what they end up knowing about it. – Edwidge Danticat

41784. In fact that is the struggle that most Americans – As rich as this country is, most Americans are very limited in their interaction with the world, unless the world comes to us in a very shocking way. – Edwidge Danticat

41785. In Haiti you had the Duvaliers for 29 years and they were very well supported by the United States. – Edwidge Danticat

41786. In terms of the idea of long-term occupation – I have been reading a little bit more about this period – and you can see in that occupation are many lessons for the current occupation of Iraq. So we have these connections that go way back that people aren’t aware of. – Edwidge Danticat

41787. More and more people are able to access information – thank goodness we have the Internet and if you are interested you can find things. Which is different than even 20 years ago. – Edwidge Danticat

41789. I think daily that the country’s future is being thrown to the wind. – Edwidge Danticat

41790. On some levels, you can also have this feeling that we are being duped, somehow. And that the world is at play for something you would understand more if it were pure ideology. It is a very strange time and also basic things are being taken away. – Edwidge Danticat

41791. And the fact that Haiti was occupied for 19 years by the United States, from 1915 to 1934. – Edwidge Danticat

41792. People aren’t really aware of what’s happening in other places. – Edwidge Danticat

41793. People think that there is a country there that these people are only around when they are on CNN. I don’t think that’s limited to Haiti. – Edwidge Danticat

41794. People who want alternative information have to try so hard to find it. – Edwidge Danticat

41795. Someone has said that nations have interests, they don’t have friends, and you see that over and over in U.S. policy. – Edwidge Danticat

41796. That’s whatever news topic, whatever political process any country is going through – whenever they are in the news, that’s when they exist. If you don’t see them they don’t exist. – Edwidge Danticat

41800. On some level, now, we are joining the larger world and realizing that we are connected with people in these very scary ways, sometimes. What happened recently in Spain affects us here and brings questions up. It is too bad that people have to be shaken up in that way. – Edwidge Danticat

41801. Creating these messes that go from administration to administration and then you swoop in and clean them up – with that heroic Delta force – people not realizing that they were always there but doing different things than what we see them doing at the moment. – Edwidge Danticat

41802. Also, people are not often aware of the way the United States’ policies influence what happens in places like Haiti or El Salvador or Nicaragua. Or in Columbia right now. – Edwidge Danticat

41815. We did 112 shows and had 112 parties. – Tony Danza

41816. We are cutting things kids like-music, art, and gym classes; stuff that kept me in school. This country can’t survive without you kids. It’s all about you kids. – Tony Danza

41817. Sometimes it’s like watching a train wreck. You’re uncomfortable, but you just can’t help yourself. Some of those so-called bad interviews actually turned into compelling television. – Tony Danza

41818. In an earthquake, I shouldn’t run out of the house – I should run into it. – Tony Danza

41819. I love to cook and I know a lot of people watching love those segments, but so often they feel rushed to me. If we give ’em a bit more time to breathe, people will get more out of them. – Tony Danza

41823. Hold back the tide. Keep your kids innocent as long as possible. – Tony Danza

41824. I got this call that they wanted me to join this cast. They called it a family show, and it thought that it would be similar to all family shows. I wasn’t sure about this until I watched some tapes, and was amazed. – Tony Danza

41825. In Japan, they have TV sets in cars right now, where you can punch up traffic routes, weather, everything! You can get Internet access already in cars in Japan, so within the next 2 to 3 years it’s gonna be so crazy! – Glenn Danzig

41828. I just told you I wasn’t a Satanist. – Glenn Danzig

41829. I know they are going to be doing a box set in Europe of Danzig 5 and 6 and some other stuff. – Glenn Danzig

41830. I think the Democratic Party has picked a lot of the wrong candidates, the kind that Middle America, or people who are more down the middle and more rational, can’t side with. I think that’s been the problem. – Glenn Danzig

41831. I think the key to being a journalist is getting your subject to feel comfortable enough to talk about stuff they want to talk about and the stuff they like and don’t like, and still feel comfortable about it. – Glenn Danzig

41832. I was bringing my attitude as a regular person ’cause this is my attitude. – Glenn Danzig

41833. But unfortunately, I have to say, one out of every 100 interviews I do, I get a real journalist. – Glenn Danzig

41834. I’m just saying that at least for the foreseeable future there won’t be any more touring. – Glenn Danzig

41835. People don’t realize that they’re being played by the Democratic Party and the Republican Party, but more so by the Democratic Party because the Democratic Party does not want another party in there. – Glenn Danzig

41836. It’s not like that anymore really, but back in the day, nobody would let the Misfits open up for them, not the Ramones, not the Cramps, nobody. – Glenn Danzig

41837. It’s okay for Christians throughout centuries to exterminate races and for their priests to rape little kids throughout decades, but trying to give the people the power to think and be individual, that’s evil? – Glenn Danzig

41838. Of course, I started really being a comics fan with the underground stuff in the ’70s. – Glenn Danzig

41839. So writing a song is much harder than doing a classical piece for me, because in a classical piece, I can just let the mood dictate what’s going to happen. – Glenn Danzig

41841. Until the contract is signed, nothing is real. – Glenn Danzig

41842. I wish the Libertarian Party would get more play in the media but they don’t. – Glenn Danzig

41843. But the Danzig unreleased stuff will be either a single or a double CD. – Glenn Danzig

41844. The Democratic party has gone so far to the left that people just can’t relate to it anymore and the Republican party is trying to go totally to the right. – Glenn Danzig

41845. You know I take music seriously, right? So I expect journalists to take being a journalist seriously. – Glenn Danzig

41846. Yeah, now we publish whenever we feel like it. – Glenn Danzig

41847. Whether I’m doing music or I’m walking down the street or I’m in a record store buying a record or I walk into a comic store and I’m buying comics or having a drink with my friends, it’s the same me. – Glenn Danzig

41848. We’ve had a lot of agencies try and sabotage our tour. – Glenn Danzig

41849. We’re doing Circle of Snakes, we open up with Skin Carver and we are throwing in Skull Forest later on. – Glenn Danzig

41850. We still have pretty good sales, especially for the art books. – Glenn Danzig

41851. We probably put about four or five comic books out a year and probably about two or three art books and various trade paperbacks – maybe four or five of those a year – and that’s what we do now. – Glenn Danzig

41852. Wars have always started over religion. – Glenn Danzig

41853. I didn’t expect to be doing a whole bunch of Amber Browns. And because it was just one book, and the father had moved away, I didn’t realize I was going to have to deal more with shared custody, divorce and all those issues. – Paula Danziger

41854. Sometimes it’s easier to show than it is to tell. – Paula Danziger

41855. The books are funny and sad, and that’s what people respond to. – Paula Danziger

41856. None of my characters seem to have had sex yet – I haven’t written about that. And I wouldn’t want to deal with what’s happening in Oregon – the school shootings. – Paula Danziger

41857. I think my books talk about kids learning to like and respect themselves and each other. You can’t write a message book; you just tell the best story you know how to tell. – Paula Danziger

41858. I made the choice long ago to write about real life. And life is both serious and funny. – Paula Danziger

41859. I deal with unhappy marriages a lot. I’ve never been married, I’m single. – Paula Danziger

41860. Normally, I name my characters after famous comedians. – Paula Danziger

41861. My father was a very unhappy person, very sarcastic, and my mother was very nervous and worried about what people thought. They weren’t monsters, but it wasn’t a good childhood. – Paula Danziger

41862. In my next life, I want to be tall and thin, parallel park and make good coffee. But for now, I have lots of stuff to work out in my life, but I’ll have that until the day I die. I want to write more books. – Paula Danziger

41863. I’m very lucky. I’m very fortunate that my books have never gone out of print – none of them. – Paula Danziger

41864. I wish I had had my books when I was a kid, I do. – Paula Danziger

41865. I want to keep meeting new people, enlarging my circle of friends. I have great friends now… really good people. But I’m always ready for what comes next. – Paula Danziger

41866. I try to be careful because technology changes so much over the years. But some things don’t change. Kids and parents have disagreements, kids try to manipulate, parents try to sit down with rules and regs. That part never changes. – Paula Danziger

41867. At age 12, I was put on tranquilizers when I should have gotten help. There was nothing major and awful, I just didn’t feel my family was supportive and emotionally generous. – Paula Danziger

41869. When my father would yell at me, I told myself someday I’d use it in a book. – Paula Danziger

41872. I am fascinated with times past. – Frank Darabont

41873. Boy, I’d hate to shoot on tape or disc or whatever the hell they’re talking about. I love film. – Frank Darabont

41883. Christ preferred the poor; ever since I have been converted so have I. – John Nelson Darby

41884. During my solitude, conflicting thoughts increased; but much exercise of soul had the effect of causing the scriptures to gain complete ascendancy over me. – John Nelson Darby

41885. But the more we search the Scriptures, the more we perceive, in this doctrine, the fundamental truth of the gospel – that truth which gives to redemption its character, and to all other truths their real power. – John Nelson Darby

41886. I go farther, and say, that it is plainly our duty to desire pastors and teachers to take the care of such congregations, and that God did raise up such in the church as we see it in the word. – John Nelson Darby

41887. By one Spirit we are all baptised into one body. – John Nelson Darby

41888. I add, that those who are bent on restoring the whole church ought to be well instructed in the word, and to abstain from doing anything under the pretext of simplicity. – John Nelson Darby

41890. I held apostolic succession fully, and the channels of grace to be there only. – John Nelson Darby

41891. Every Christian will allow that sin is an evil, and that it is our duty not to commit sin. – John Nelson Darby

41892. The Reformation did not directly touch the question of the true character of God’s church. – John Nelson Darby

41893. To rest satisfied with existing evils, as if we could do nothing, is not obedience; but neither is it obedience to imitate the actions of the apostles. – John Nelson Darby

41894. This truth of the gathering together of God’s children is in Scripture seen realised in various localities, and in each central locality the Christians resident therein composed but one body: Scripture is perfectly clear on that head. – John Nelson Darby

41895. I had always owned them to be the Word of God… the careful reading of the Acts afforded me a practical picture of the early church; which made me feel deeply the contrast with its actual present state; though still, as ever beloved by God. – John Nelson Darby

41896. The Epistle is a correction of profession without life, and most valuable in this respect. – John Nelson Darby

41897. I know that those who esteem these little organised associations to be the churches of God, see nothing but mere meetings of men in every other gathering of God’s children. – John Nelson Darby

41898. If real churches exist, such persons are not called on to make them. – John Nelson Darby

41899. It is the desire of our hearts, and as we believe God’s will under this dispensation, that all the children of God should be gathered together as such, and, consequently, as not of the world. – John Nelson Darby

41900. Jude has a very different character. It is not the cradle of Christianity, or of the assembly on earth: it is its decay and its death here below. It does not keep its first estate. – John Nelson Darby

41901. Let those who like society better have it. – John Nelson Darby

41902. Nationalism – in other words, the dividing of the church into bodies – consisting of such and such a nation, is a novelty, not above three centuries old, although many dear children of God are found dwelling in it. – John Nelson Darby

41904. Obedience to the word in humility of mind never confuses. – John Nelson Darby

41906. The presence of the Holy Spirit is the keystone of all our hopes. – John Nelson Darby

41907. The cross is the centre of all this in every respect. – John Nelson Darby

41908. It’s difficult to gauge that. With a bad guy you just know you’re bad. To play a nice guy is harder – unless you are a very nice person like me of course. – James D’arcy

41909. There is an odd sense of responsibility attached to appearing in a drama about a real piece of history. A work of fiction is fun. – James D’arcy

41910. There are lots of people I admire and respect, but I don’t necessarily want to be like them. I’m to happy being myself. – James D’arcy

41911. When I left school I went to Australia for a year and worked in the drama department of a school in Perth. – James D’arcy

41917. It felt good doing a physical job, and going home each evening feeling like I had really done a day’s work. – James D’arcy

41918. I’m not really very ambitious. – James D’arcy

41919. I’m more interested in enjoying my life and looking after my family than being hugely successful. – James D’arcy

41920. I’m attracted to seeing how different I can be, pushing the boat out. – James D’arcy

41924. Baddies always do get the best lines, that’s the honest truth. – James D’arcy

41925. Although this is a fictitious story the history is real. You don’t want to re-write history but you certainly want to portray events and characters as realistically as you can. – James D’arcy

41926. The events of the day inspired me to become a lawyer. – Christopher Darden

41927. That’s an interesting question. I would say that in general Americans know very little about the law. It’s one of those things that most of us take for granted. – Christopher Darden

41928. The law has no compassion. And justice is administered without compassion. – Christopher Darden

41929. That’s the thing about us lawyers – if at all possible, we will consume each other. – Christopher Darden

41930. It’s too late for that – trying to second guess it. It’s over. I’m worried about how to get the kids through school and still write and practice law and take power of attorney. – Christopher Darden

41931. It’s much like writing a screenplay with someone else and that’s how we view it, I think. – Christopher Darden

41932. Something’s going to happen that’s going to make us all pay attention at the type of sentences some people are serving and the conditions in which they are served. – Christopher Darden

41933. Writing is hard work, but a lot of fun, too. It allows me to live out some of my fantasies. – Christopher Darden

41934. I’m real bent on dialogue. I’m just a little bit crazy and when you put that along with 20 years as a criminal lawyer, it’s pretty easy to come up with some interesting plots. – Christopher Darden

41935. It did not prepare me for writing or “Power of Attorney.” However, what it did is that it forced me out of the DA’s office. I stopped getting that county check. – Christopher Darden

41936. I just did something on a show on UPN called “Girlfriends” that will be on television in February. I am actually a much better actor today than I was in 1996, believe it or not. – Christopher Darden

41937. I no longer teach law. But when I did I advised my students that they should never accept a case if it meant that by doing so you couldn’t sleep at night. – Christopher Darden

41938. I suppose that one of the reasons I wrote “In Contempt” was because of the money. After the trial I came to realize that there were things that I needed to do if I was to protect myself and my family, so there were some selfish reasons for it. – Christopher Darden

41939. I think it hurt my performance because I stopped being me. That won’t ever happen again. – Christopher Darden

41940. I think that as I continue to write, my writing I hope will become more controversial and more provocative. – Christopher Darden

41941. I don’t know how the editors are going to take it or how it may be received. But to some extent I’m hoping that with the next book, when people pick it up and read it, it will scare the pants off of them. – Christopher Darden

41942. I think that the mere fact that I’m doing it ought to inspire someone. In junior high school the counselor suggested that I focus on wood shop and metal shop. – Christopher Darden

41943. I did not think that I was angry, but clearly anger was reflected in my writing. I did not think that I had been affected emotionally, but it was clear from my writing that I was still very emotional about the trial some six months after it ended. – Christopher Darden

41944. In some ways I’m still recovering from the trial. My health is not as good as it ought to be. I’ve gone back to practicing law and it seems to have taken a toll for whatever reason. – Christopher Darden

41945. In fact, some reviewers have said that as they got into the story they forgot that the protagonist is a black woman. They were moved by the story – by the people as a whole – and not by the little things. – Christopher Darden

41946. It would have been easier to have a male protagonist, but I didn’t want people to assume that Nikki Hill was me in her entirety because a lot of people just don’t like me and I don’t think they would be interested in reading about me, even in the fictional context. – Christopher Darden

41947. I am a struggling writer. A middle-aged man with two little kids and I’m just trying to earn a living. So buy this book – or my kids will have to go to foster care. – Christopher Darden

41948. I began writing in the 4th grade. As a matter of fact, I produced a play for the entire school. It was about Leif Ericson and the discovery of America. – Christopher Darden

41949. I chose to go to law school because I thought that someday, somehow I’d make a difference. – Christopher Darden

41950. All I can really say is it’s bloodier than hell. In this one I’m going to be much more direct and honest in my description of the actual killings and the crime scene. – Christopher Darden

41951. I can’t tell you how hard I worked the last year. In fact, I worked so hard that I know I can’t maintain that same work level in 2001, so I’ve got to quit something. – Christopher Darden

41952. Maybe I should quit the business. There’s no one left for me to love. Mama’s dead. Mr. Burns couldn’t care less about me. What’s left? – Bobby Darin

41953. If you don’t try, if you don’t do something for yourself, you won’t get anywhere. – Bobby Darin

41954. My goal is to be remembered as a human being and as a great performer. – Bobby Darin

41955. My family comes first. Maybe that’s what makes me different from other guys. – Bobby Darin

41956. My entire life has been a lie. – Bobby Darin

41957. Mr. Burns comes out and flips cigar ashes on his shoes, and makes up about 90 percent of what you hear. – Bobby Darin

41958. My whole life has been a lie. – Bobby Darin

41959. Just call me a family man and an actor who digs his whole scene, side interests and all. Just say I feel mighty good at the ripe old age of 27. – Bobby Darin

41960. It was as though all my hostilities, anxieties, and conflicts were in one ball that was flying away into space, farther from me all the time, leaving me content with myself. – Bobby Darin

41961. It isn’t true that you live only once. You only die once. You live lots of times, if you know how. – Bobby Darin

41962. It happens to the best of them. You lay off singing and your throat gets out of practice. No excuses. I blew it. – Bobby Darin

41963. Mr. Burns is a father symbol to me, and you can omit the word symbol. – Bobby Darin

41964. I decided I was going to give up singing and concentrate on acting, and a result of that, I didn’t do another film for two to three years, and I don’t blame it on anybody but myself. – Bobby Darin

41965. Nearly everything I do is part of a master plan to make me the most important entertainer in the world. – Bobby Darin

41966. Show me any top entertainer or top business executive, and I’ll show you a guy who has mapped out his life from the very start. – Bobby Darin

41967. Sure my career means a hell of a lot, but it will never come before Sandy and my son. – Bobby Darin

41968. The Democratic Party of California is ready to sponsor me. All I have to do is find the right office to run for. – Bobby Darin

41969. The sex element is the most important in the business. You must sell sex. – Bobby Darin

41970. There are certain times I don’t want my picture taken. If my wife’s stepping out of a car and it looks like it’s going to come out an indecent picture, don’t I have a right to object? – Bobby Darin

41971. This marriage is no one’s business but our own. – Bobby Darin

41972. When I come out and sing the first few bars of Bill Bailey, it’s very exciting. – Bobby Darin
