43846. The European model is in danger if we obliterate the principle of personal responsibility. – Jacques Delors

43857. Too many women throw themselves into romance because they’re afraid of being single, then start making compromises and losing their identity. I won’t do that. – Julie Delpy

43858. The biggest misconception about us is that we’re just a rock band. We think our music is a cross-section of many genres; a hybrid of what the six of us have grown up on. – Brad Delson

43859. People think when you get a record deal all your problems will go away. We know that the bigger we get, the more problems we’ll have. I guess Puff Daddy was somewhat – what’s the word? – prophetic in that respect. – Brad Delson

43868. Mr. Brooks and I have been friends forever. He is in seventh heaven with his new success on Broadway. – Dom DeLuise

43869. My mother had lots and lots of children who didn’t survive. – Dom DeLuise

43879. Most of the music you hear on the radio today is developed for making money. It doesn’t feel true or honest. You can feel it in the music. – Iris DeMent

43880. Some guy refuses to fight and we call that the sin, but he’s standing up for what he believes in and that seems pretty damned American to me. – Iris Dement

43881. Maybe I spent more time dwelling on emotions than some people, and maybe that’s why I ended up writing. – Iris DeMent

43882. This is how it has been since time began: If you want to make something really worthwhile and true, then you have to suffer for it. – Iris DeMent

43883. My guitar is really tempermental. I don’t give up on it though, I’m close to my guitar! – Iris DeMent

43885. Making the record was tons of fun, the most fun I’ve ever had. – Iris DeMent

43891. I don’t describe myself as a Christian or religious, but I like to think that how I live my life is honest. – Iris DeMent

43892. For a long time I was interested in being a social worker. In a lot of ways I feel that that’s all my music is, trying to help people. – Iris DeMent

43893. And I’ve been walking ’round with memories way too long. – Iris Dement

43894. I’ve always been aware of having feelings that were pretty intense at times. I imagine most people have had that, or they wouldn’t be human. – Iris DeMent

43906. This is the heart of my argument: We can put more pressure on the antagonist for whom we show human concern. – Barbara Deming

43907. To resort to power one need not be violent, and to speak to conscience one need not be meek. The most effective action both resorts to power and engages conscience. – Barbara Deming

43908. Vengeance is not the point; change is. But the trouble is that in most people’s minds the thought of victory and the thought of punishing the enemy coincide. – Barbara Deming

43909. We believe, in fact, that the one act of respect has little force unless matched by the other – in balance with it… The acting out of that dual respect I would name as precisely the source of our power. – Barbara Deming

43910. We learn best to listen to our own voices if we are listening at the same time to other women – whose stories, for all our differences, turn out, if we listen well, to be our stories also. – Barbara Deming

43913. People who attack others need rationalizations for doing so. We undermine those rationalizations. – Barbara Deming

43914. Of course it can be said of jails, too, that they try – by punishing the troublesome – to deter others. No doubt, in certain instances this deterrence actually works. But generally speaking it fails conspicuously. – Barbara Deming

43915. Nonviolent tactics can move into action on our behalf men not naturally inclined to act for us. – Barbara Deming

43916. Nonviolent action does not have to get others to be nice. It can in effect force them to consult their consciences. – Barbara Deming

43917. I think the only choice that will enable us to hold to our vision… is one that abandons the concept of naming enemies and adopts a concept familiar to the nonviolent tradition: naming behavior that is oppressive. – Barbara Deming

43918. After the revolution, let us hope, prisons simply would not exist – if by prisons we mean places that could be experienced by the men and women in them at all as every place that goes by that name now is bound to be experienced. – Barbara Deming

43919. The longer we listen to one another – with real attention – the more commonality we will find in all our lives. That is, if we are careful to exchange with one another life stories and not simply opinions. – Barbara Deming

43920. After the revolution, it might very well remain necessary to place people where they could not do harm to others. But the one under restraint should be cut off from the rest of society as little as possible. – Barbara Deming

43921. All prisons that have existed in our society to date put people away as no human being should ever be put away. – Barbara Deming

43922. The injunction that we should love our neighbors as ourselves means to us equally that we should love ourselves as we love our neighbors. – Barbara Deming

43956. Since the dawn of time, traditional marriage – the union between one man and one woman – has been the building block of civilization, and at no point in our nation’s history has that foundation been under more severe attack than now. – Jim DeMint

43957. The hope and change the Democrats had in mind was nothing more than a retread of the failed and discredited socialist policies that have been the enemy of freedom for centuries all over the world. I fear America is teetering towards tyranny. – Jim DeMint

43958. Motorists who want to save money on gas will demand and buy more fuel-efficient vehicles. We should not limit their freedom with more government regulations. – Jim DeMint

43959. If we want to secure the best jobs in the future, we must make America the best place in the world to do business. – Jim DeMint

43960. Today is a celebration of hope for the Iraqi people. The Iraqi people can now take control of their government and their future by creating a society that protects the rights endowed to us by our creator – life, liberty and freedom. – Jim DeMint

43961. We have been blessed with a healthy, growing economy, with more Americans going back to work, and with our Nation acting as a positive force for good in the world. – Jim DeMint

43964. I don’t think of Storefront Hitchcock or Stop Making Sense as documentaries, I think of them more as performance films. – Jonathan Demme

43965. I had very strong feelings, so the chance to make a film that deals in an imaginative way with stuff you care tremendously about is a real high. It’s a really amazing thing to be able to do. – Jonathan Demme

43966. I only work with actors who take full responsibility for their characters. – Jonathan Demme

43967. When Silence of the Lambs did well commercially it was more than anything. My partner Ed Saxon and I were just so relieved that finally we had made a movie that had made some money! – Jonathan Demme

43971. What I think happens today is that a lot of filmmakers look at other films that are retro pieces, like L.A. Confidential, and say, oh, that’s period. We didn’t want to do the stereotypical stuff. – Ted Demme

43972. The thing that’s great about those guys at Miramax is the Weinstein brothers. They are the two funniest guys I’ve ever met in my life. – Ted Demme

43973. That’s why I’m really trying to produce my own stuff. This film was so good, because I produced it myself, and developed it, and made it with New Line, which is a smaller studio, so I was in control of a lot of stuff that I wasn’t in control of for my other films. – Ted Demme

43976. I tried to stick to my game plan, which was always being aware of what my A story was – the love story between a father and his son, and that son and his daughter. – Ted Demme

43977. I think, on a larger note, that filmmakers and studios should start to tuck it in a little bit, because films wouldn’t have the pressure they have if the word wasn’t out about how expensive they were. – Ted Demme

43978. I felt that as long as we were being honest, and that we didn’t bend the truth to accomplish another goal, to be entertaining or to be a happy ending, I was confident that we’d be able to tell the story the way it happened. – Ted Demme

43979. But my humble opinion is, I’m not quite sure where I stand on the legalization of drugs – though, if tequila is legal, pot should probably be legal. – Ted Demme

43993. Nothing exists except atoms and empty space; everything else is opinion. – Democritus

43994. Now as of old the gods give men all good things, excepting only those that are baneful and injurious and useless. These, now as of old, are not gifts of the gods: men stumble into them themselves because of their own blindness and folly. – Democritus

43995. Our sins are more easily remembered than our good deeds. – Democritus

43996. Raising children is an uncertain thing; success is reached only after a life of battle and worry. – Democritus
