46415. To be a bitch or not to be a bitch, that is the question. – Shannen Doherty

46418. I began acting at age eight, but if you don’t stay on your game then people pass on you. Being on a show, it’s a little easy to get comfortable, so I’m trying to get back on it. I’m taking some acting classes and watching movies, and I’m just trying to stay up with other actors. – Jason Dohring

46419. I feel for Veronica Mars so much when I’m watching at home. It is a wonderful story. The writing is consistently funny, biting, charming, heart-wrenching, etc. I also like the look of it. The cinematography – different from any other show. – Jason Dohring

46422. My favorite on screen moments are when you are really there and you know you’re creating something. That’s so exciting… it’s why you come to work. – Jason Dohring

46423. It sucks to be the runner-up because I’ve been the runner-up for a long time in my career. I would get so close and then lose a huge movie and sometimes it’s one kid who beats you out for three different movies.

46450. I’m a perfume whore. – Lexa Doig

46452. I was taken to one place by a director, and he bought me a lap dance. – Lexa Doig

46462. Inventing is a skill that some people have and some people don’t. But you can learn how to invent. – Ray Dolby

46463. I think a lot of developments start with the desire of the developer to get what he really wants so that he can use it. It’s not just the technical fascination or the business opportunity. – Ray Dolby

46464. Well, you know, I mean, I first did my live shows in the late 70’s and in those days I had a boatload of equipment that always seemed to be going wrong. – Thomas Dolby

46466. The man who never dreams, goes slowly mad. – Thomas Dolby

46467. The hardware manufacturers, game designers, cable companies and computer companies and, in fact, film studios are going to ensure that this thing marches on. They know that they are going to make an enormous amount of money from it. – Thomas Dolby

46468. From a technical point of view, there seemed to me to be absolutely no reason why – with the existing technology – we couldn’t do very high quality audio, because whereas the boom in digital graphics is ongoing, the boom in digital audio has already happened. – Thomas Dolby

46469. I started looking at small companies that were running a sort of virtual reality cottage industry: I had imagined that I would just put on a helmet and be somewhere else – that’s your dream of what it’s going to be. – Thomas Dolby

46470. I was desperate really for people not to accuse me of coldness. It was taboo. – Thomas Dolby

46471. I was very pleased to find that once I had records out music videos were starting to happen, so I directed some of my own music videos and got to experiment in other areas of expression. – Thomas Dolby

46472. The games industry is already bigger than the music industry, and it’s mainly directed at teenage boys. – Thomas Dolby

46473. I’ve been out on the periphery. – Thomas Dolby

46474. So I’ll set a cycle in motion and pop it into record and I’ll lay down a drum pattern, a bass line, a keyboard and guitar part, and once the groove is going I launch into the song and sing my song over the top. – Thomas Dolby

46475. It was supposed to be a year or two just to refresh my batteries, but I moved to Silicon Valley in the early 90’s, and one thing let to another, got very involved in high tech, and formed a company and it ended up doing pretty well. – Thomas Dolby

46476. It’s been over 15 years since I toured… over 12 years since I did any recording under my own name. I never really intended to take that long of a hiatus. – Thomas Dolby

46477. So evidently music was a killer app and is a killer app for computer and the Internet; it just took the tech industry a long time to hear that message. – Thomas Dolby

46500. Iraq is the central battleground in the war on terror. The terrorists certainly know what is at stake, which is why they are pulling out all the stops to derail our efforts there. They know that a free and democratic Iraq is a serious blow to their interests. – Elizabeth Dole

46501. In liberating Iraq, we have rid the nation and the rest of the world from the danger of Saddam Hussein. – Elizabeth Dole

46610. Well, it seems to me Lincoln, I suppose, is kind of a model of a particular sort of presidency, a presidency that first of all is elected by a minority of the votes. – David Herbert Donald

46611. The more I have studied Lincoln, the more I have followed his thought processes, the more I am convinced that he understood leadership better than any other American president. – David Herbert Donald

46612. The big biography of Lincoln necessarily had to do so much with his political career, his ambitions, his accomplishments in public, with less time to spend on his private life, his inner life, and I thought this might be a way of getting at that. – David Herbert Donald

46621. But having said all of that, that still doesn’t account for a lot of the increase in popularity which stems, I think, from Lincoln’s personal characteristics. – David Herbert Donald

46622. At the beginning, Lincoln was so inexperienced he had reverence for military expertise, not realizing that there wasn’t any military expertise, that the most anybody had commanded up to that point had been somebody, some troops in the Mexican War, and it had been years ago. – David Herbert Donald

46633. I don’t know many people, if any, who have had some straight line toward success. I mean, they start here, they work hard, they’ve got what it takes, and they just go straight to the top over some number of years. Most people get a little failure. – Sam Donaldson

46634. I can’t tell you what that little ingredient is which makes that first person want to go on and aggressively do more, and the other person be content to not do that. It’s a mystery, but it does happen. – Sam Donaldson

46638. As I went to college, I went into radio and television. Now I suppose most people think that’s one step ahead of basket weaving as a major in college, but it was part of the journalism department. – Sam Donaldson

46639. And really, the basis, I think, of achieving some success in what I want to do today comes from my mother’s push to get me to read and to make something of myself from the standpoint of an education. – Sam Donaldson

46640. And on election night I’d go down to city hall in El Paso, Texas and cover the election. In those days, of course, we didn’t have exit polls. You didn’t know who had won the election until they actually counted the votes. I thought that was exciting too. – Sam Donaldson

46641. And from a military school which taught me that to fit into society, you can’t just do anything you damn well please because it will suit you. And that it’s much better to be with the winners than it is with the losers. – Sam Donaldson

46643. But in 1941, on December 8th, after the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, my mother bought a radio and we listened to the war news. We’d not had a radio up to that time. I was born in 1934, so I was seven years of age. – Sam Donaldson

46648. I didn’t come east of the Mississippi for the first time in my life until I was 26 years of age, but I knew. I read magazines, I listened to radio, I watched television. I knew there was something out there, and I wanted a part of it. – Sam Donaldson

46649. The questions don’t do the damage. Only the answers do. – Sam Donaldson

46651. News conferences are the only chance the American public has to see Ronald Reagan use his mind. – Sam Donaldson

46652. My mother gave me a push. If I hadn’t had her, maybe I wouldn’t have had the push. If I hadn’t gone to military school, maybe I wouldn’t have decided to get with the program. Maybe I’d be running a bulldozer, rather than going on and doing something more. – Sam Donaldson

46653. You really get the most out of sweet corn if you pick the corn off the stalk and rush it to a pot of boiling water. The longer you wait, the more sugar you lose. But if you get it in the first half hour, that is the sweetest corn ever. – Sam Donaldson

46747. All of us are trying to achieve 100 percent in our work. That’s all we struggle to do. We never do, but we never stop trying until the day we die. It’s that struggle to achieve 100 percent, that’s where our performance lies, that’s what the audience gets. They get the struggle. – Vincent D’Onofrio

Don’t recommend doing it alone. I also built a 100-square-foot back porch. Again, don’t recommend doing it alone. – Jeffrey Donovan

46782. I’ve always wanted to do theater in Chicago. Chicago is a big theater town-and, in some ways, I think this city is savvier and smarter than New York. Sometimes, I think it’s a little too chic to go to theater in New York these days. – Jeffrey Donovan
