53640. Courtney Love is really cool and funny. I would like to meet Julia Roberts and Cameron Diaz. I think I could play their daughters. – Dakota Fanning

53641. I like everything perfect. Everything has to be neat. My sister is 5, and she’s more messy than I am. I make my bed every morning, everything’s perfect. My shoes are all arranged. It’s sad. I’m a little like Ray, a little bit. – Dakota Fanning

53642. I never get scared making these kinds of movies because it’s all make-believe, but I did cry when I saw the finished version of Man On Fire because it is so sad. – Dakota Fanning

53643. I’m home schooled, and I have a teacher that goes with me on all my movies. – Dakota Fanning

53644. I’ve always wanted to be an actress, ever since I was a little girl. I always played the mom and I played my sister as the daughter. I wanted to be an actress on television and movies instead of just around the house. – Dakota Fanning

53645. ER was one of my favourites. I played a car accident victim who has leukemia. I got to wear a neck brace and nose tubes for the two days I worked. – Dakota Fanning

53646. I learned to read at two. I was in a Montessori school and they teach you to read really, really young. – Dakota Fanning

53647. I think it’s pretty obvious to most people that Napster is not media specific, but I could see a system like Napster evolving into something that allows users to locate and retrieve different types of data other than just MP3s or audio files. – Shawn Fanning

53648. Bertelsmann understood our vision when they first invested in us… They still believe in that vision. – Shawn Fanning

53649. I think then, when we started receiving the first of the user feedback, feedback from people that I had not specifically told about it, but had spread from friend to friend and then they were giving us feedback. – Shawn Fanning

53650. If you’re a musician or actor, you know that if you’re successful, some level of fame goes along with that. You’re prepared. But how often does that happen to a programmer? – Shawn Fanning

53651. Independent artists and labels have always been the trend setters in music and the music business. – Shawn Fanning

53652. But I just really think there is a natural extension into other types of media because it’s an excellent system for reliably locating and retrieving content. – Shawn Fanning

53653. He said this has the potential to be the first broadband killer application, and it has sort of become the truth because obviously it’s so bandwidth intensive. I mean, it has been an issue. – Shawn Fanning

53654. I had to actually purchase a book to learn the API and write the client. It was pretty frustrating trying to learn the API and develop a product quickly. – Shawn Fanning

53655. I think in terms of the work we’re doing now a lot of the UI cleanup… I see it getting much prettier. – Shawn Fanning

53656. I think the most difficult thing had been scaling the infrastructure. Trying to support the response we had received from our users and the number of people that were interested in using the software. – Shawn Fanning

53657. If you think about computer programming, it’s as antisocial as it gets. – Shawn Fanning

53658. It was very early, and we were still like beta or alpha stage, and so we started receiving a ton of download. The server became overloaded, and that’s when I realized that this had a huge market. – Shawn Fanning

53659. So the bandwidth issue is definitely a big concern of ours. – Shawn Fanning

53660. Well, user feedback was excellent. Even when the software didn’t work at all, there were few people who were avid users, and there were people who were just sending excellent feedback and excellent ideas. – Shawn Fanning

53661. Unfortunately, the client that exists today is still pretty much the prototype design. – Shawn Fanning

53662. That’s why I ended up leaving school – because it required so much time, and it was such an excellent idea. I figured I would regret not going full force with this idea. It seemed we could make something of it. – Shawn Fanning

53663. Nobody has ever built a reliable peer-to-peer service, where people can really access all the music they want in one location,… Once I got it into my head, I couldn’t imagine the media space without one. – Shawn Fanning

53664. Napster works because people who love music share and participate. – Shawn Fanning

53665. It’s been all over the press, and schools are deciding to shut it down. We released a public announcement saying that we had some potential solutions that we were working with, and once we had something concrete we would start implementing it and approach schools. – Shawn Fanning

53666. There really was nothing like it at the time. We had good ideas for implementation, so we proceeded. I think it was an excellent solution to the reliability issues with existing search engines. – Shawn Fanning

53667. Fervor is the weapon of choice of the impotent. – Frantz Fanon

53668. Violence is man re-creating himself. – Frantz Fanon

53669. There is a point at which methods devour themselves. – Frantz Fanon

53670. I ascribe a basic importance to the phenomenon of language. To speak means to be in a position to use a certain syntax, to grasp the morphology of this or that language, but it means above all to assume a culture, to support the weight of a civilization. – Frantz Fanon

53671. However painful it may be for me to accept this conclusion, I am obliged to state it: for the black man there is only one destiny. And it is white. – Frantz Fanon

53672. For the black man there is only one destiny. And it is white. – Frantz Fanon

53673. He who is reluctant to recognize me opposes me. – Frantz Fanon

53674. The important thing is to know how to take all things quietly. – Michael Faraday

53675. The five essential entrepreneurial skills for success are concentration, discrimination, organization, innovation and communication. – Michael Faraday

53676. Nothing is too wonderful to be true if it be consistent with the laws of nature. – Michael Faraday

53677. The lecturer should give the audience full reason to believe that all his powers have been exerted for their pleasure and instruction. – Michael Faraday

53678. I think that politics needs a bit of spicing up. – Nigel Farage

53679. This Constitution does not reflect the thoughts, hopes and aspirations of ordinary people. It does nothing for jobs or economic growth and widens further still the democratic deficit. – Nigel Farage

53680. When they released Sidewalks of New York, there were some shots with the towers they were going to take out, and Ed told them no. I don’t think they can deny the towers were a part of New York. – Dennis Farina

53681. This generation of filmmakers is very good. They’re seasoned, for some reason. – Dennis Farina

53682. The British have slang words, as we do, but it was fun. – Dennis Farina

53683. The cast was huge, but I never saw anybody. – Dennis Farina

53684. There’s a whole catalogue of actors that never went to acting school. – Dennis Farina

53685. This is my first experience working in a foreign movie, but the mechanics, I think, are pretty much the same all over; you still have to wait in the trailer. – Dennis Farina

53686. Usually you’re in movies with a lot of dissolves and things, but this was kind of quick, more jarring than usual. I thought it would be fun to be in a movie that’s unconventional. Then I met Guy and I liked him. I think he’s a good man. – Dennis Farina

53687. Vince or Brad or Benicio would say, Maybe we should try this, and Guy was open to changes. – Dennis Farina

53688. When I was a kid going to the movies, we’d go because Bogart was in the movie, or Cagney, or John Wayne. We didn’t know what the story was about or anything. – Dennis Farina

53689. You can’t act for the editing. You just go in and do the scene the way you think is right. – Dennis Farina

53690. What you do as a policeman might be the right thing to do, but it’s not entertaining. I left that behind me. – Dennis Farina

53691. You can change a person’s life in an instant; put him in a movie, and you start thinking differently, you want to be in another movie. It’s like an addiction almost. – Dennis Farina

53692. I have a home in Arizona. I go a couple months a year, but basically Chicago is my home. – Dennis Farina

53693. I wanted to do Buddy Faro as a small budget movie. They said no. So I wanted to do it as a series of recurring TV movies, and they said no. So I agreed to do it as a series. – Dennis Farina

53694. I’d love to do a Western. A real Western like John Ford used to do. There’s not too many of them made, so I don’t know if I’ll ever get to do that. They’re awfully hard movies to make. – Dennis Farina

53695. I’ve tried writing. Two days later I’d go visit it and say, Jesus Christ, who wrote this crap? – Dennis Farina

53696. I think all actors are supposed to be character actors. – Dennis Farina

53697. I think first impressions are important when you pick up a script. – Dennis Farina

53698. As far as carrying the American banner, you just do what’s right for the kids. – Dennis Farina

53699. Do whatever you’re directed to do, and leave the rest of that technical stuff up to the director. – Dennis Farina

53700. I don’t know if I have a technique. I’m just trying to remember the words. – Dennis Farina

53701. I love England and the historical aspect of it. – Dennis Farina

53702. I know people who go back and check themselves, but it drives me crazy. Everybody wants to look in the mirror and see Cary Grant looking back at them, but that’s just not the case. – Dennis Farina

53703. I learned a long time ago: You’re in the entertainment business. You’re not in the reality business. One has absolutely nothing to do with the other. – Dennis Farina

53704. I read the script and try not to bring anything personal into it. I make notes, talk to the director and we decide what kinds of shades should be in the character. – Dennis Farina

53705. I don’t like to be talked into anything. I don’t want to be cajoled. – Dennis Farina

53706. I try to keep my head on straight and take nothing for granted. – Anna Faris

53707. Yeah, I do like scary movies, especially the ones that don’t take themselves too seriously. – Anna Faris

53708. The events of childhood do not pass, but repeat themselves like seasons of the year. – Eleanor Farjeon

53710. In the land of the skunks he who has half a nose is king. – Chris Farley

53711. The point is, how do you know the Guarantee Fairy isn’t a crazy glue sniffer. – Chris Farley

53712. I was interested in implements of mass destruction – from an academic point of view. – Dan Farmer

53713. If you don’t want to deal with them, fine. But don’t hamper other people from dealing with them. – Dan Farmer

53714. People don’t want to talk about death, just like they don’t want to talk about computer security. Maybe I should have named my workstation Fear. People are so motivated by fear. – Dan Farmer

53715. The whole idea that what is not normal should be kept secret – that’s really distasteful to me. – Dan Farmer

53716. You have this enormous network and no one knows what’s out there. – Dan Farmer

53717. Progress in civilization has been accompanied by progress in cookery. – Fannie Farmer

53718. I certainly feel that the time is not far distant when a knowledge of the principles of diet will be an essential part of one’s education. Then mankind will eat to live, be able to do better mental and physical work and disease will be less frequent. – Fannie Farmer

53719. That satisfied me until I began to figure that if God loved all his children equally, why did he bother about my red hat and let other people lose their fathers and mothers for always? – Frances Farmer

53720. I couldn’t get that same feeling during the day, with my hands in dirty dish water and the hard sun showing up the dirtiness on the roof tops. And after a time, even at night, the feeling of God didn’t last. – Frances Farmer

53721. I didn’t think then, and I still don’t, that I was actually sick. – Frances Farmer

53722. I have learned that to have a good friend is the purest of all God’s gifts, for it is a love that has no exchange of payment. – Frances Farmer

53723. There comes a point when a dream becomes reality and reality becomes a dream. – Frances Farmer

53724. But I was sure of one thing. If God were a father, with children, that cleanliness I had been feeling wasn’t God. – Frances Farmer

53725. The more people pointed at me in scorn the more stubborn I got and when they began calling me the Bad Girl of West Seattle High, I tried to live up to it. – Frances Farmer

53726. I just knew that God wasn’t there. He was a man on a throne in Heaven, so he was easy to forget. – Frances Farmer

53727. It puzzled me that other people hadn’t found out, too. God was gone. We were younger. We had reached past him. Why couldn’t they see it? It still puzzles me. – Frances Farmer

53728. If a person is treated like a patient, they are apt to act like one. – Frances Farmer

53729. I wondered a little why God was such a useless thing. It seemed a waste of time to have him. After that he became less and less, until he was… nothingness. – Frances Farmer

53730. I went to Sunday School and liked the stories about Christ and the Christmas star. They were beautiful. They made you warm and happy to think about. But I didn’t believe them. – Frances Farmer

53731. I used to lie between cool, clean sheets at night after I’d had a bath, after I had washed my hair and scrubbed my knuckles and finger-nails and teeth. Then I could lie quite still in the dark with my face to the window with the trees in it, and talk to God. – Frances Farmer

53732. I think God just died of old age. And, when I realized that he wasn’t any more, it didn’t shock me. It seemed natural and right! – Frances Farmer

53733. The Sunday School teacher talked too much in the way our grade school teacher used to when she told us about George Washington. Pleasant, pretty stories, but not true. – Frances Farmer

53734. I would say that, intellectually, Catholicism had no more impact on me than did social theory. – Paul Farmer

53735. I think we will see better vaccines within the next 15 years, but I’m not a scientist and am focused on the short-term – what will happen in the interim. – Paul Farmer

53736. Since I do not believe that there should be different recommendations for people living in the Bronx and people living in Manhattan, I am uncomfortable making different recommendations for my patients in Boston and in Haiti. – Paul Farmer

53737. So I can’t show you how, exactly, health care is a basic human right. But what I can argue is that no one should have to die of a disease that is treatable. – Paul Farmer

53738. The human rights community has focused very narrowly on political and civil rights for many decades, and with reason, but now we have to ask how can we broaden the view. – Paul Farmer

53739. The only way to do the human rights thing is to do the right thing medically. – Paul Farmer

53740. The poorest parts of the world are by and large the places in which one can best view the worst of medicine and not because doctors in these countries have different ideas about what constitutes modern medicine. It’s the system and its limitations that are to blame. – Paul Farmer

53741. The thing about rights is that in the end you can’t prove what should be considered a right. – Paul Farmer

53742. We’ve taken on the major health problems of the poorest – tuberculosis, maternal mortality, AIDS, malaria – in four countries. We’ve scored some victories in the sense that we’ve cured or treated thousands and changed the discourse about what is possible. – Paul Farmer

53743. It is clear that the pharmaceutical industry is not, by any stretch of the imagination, doing enough to ensure that the poor have access to adequate medical care. – Paul Farmer

53744. In fact, it seems to me that making strategic alliances across national borders in order to treat HIV among the world’s poor is one of the last great hopes of solidarity across a widening divide. – Paul Farmer

53745. I’ve been impressed, over the last 15 years, with how often the somewhat conspiratorial comments of Haitian villagers have been proven to be correct when the historical record is probed carefully. – Paul Farmer

53746. I recommend the same therapies for all humans with HIV. There is no reason to believe that physiologic responses to therapy will vary across lines of class, culture, race or nationality. – Paul Farmer

53747. I’m not an austere person. – Paul Farmer

53748. I mean we grew up in a TB bus and I became a TB doctor. – Paul Farmer

53749. Anywhere you have extreme poverty and no national health insurance, no promise of health care regardless of social standing, that’s where you see the sharp limitations of market-based health care. – Paul Farmer

53750. For me, an area of moral clarity is: you’re in front of someone who’s suffering and you have the tools at your disposal to alleviate that suffering or even eradicate it, and you act. – Paul Farmer

53751. Civil and political rights are critical, but not often the real problem for the destitute sick. My patients in Haiti can now vote but they can’t get medical care or clean water. – Paul Farmer

53752. But if you’re asking my opinion, I would argue that a social justice approach should be central to medicine and utilized to be central to public health. This could be very simple: the well should take care of the sick. – Paul Farmer

53753. But as for activism, my parents did what they could, given the constraints, but were never involved in the causes I think of when I think of activists. – Paul Farmer

53754. At the same time, it is obvious that clinicians in Haiti are faced with different, and, in fact, greater, challenges when attempting to treat complications of HIV disease. – Paul Farmer

53755. I critique market-based medicine not because I haven’t seen its heights but because I’ve seen its depths. – Paul Farmer

53756. I’m one of six kids, and the eight of us lived for over a decade in either a bus or a boat. – Paul Farmer

53757. Again, conventional Catholicism does not much appeal to me. – Paul Farmer

53758. Anyone who said he wasn’t afraid during the civil rights movement was either a liar or without imagination. I was scared all the time. My hands didn’t shake but inside I was shaking. – James L. Farmer, Jr.

53760. We, who are the living, possess the past. Tomorrow is for our martyrs. – James L. Farmer, Jr.

53762. The ultimate aim of the human mind, in all its efforts, is to become acquainted with Truth. – Eliza Farnham

53763. Our own theological Church, as we know, has scorned and vilified the body till it has seemed almost a reproach and a shame to have one, yet at the same time has credited it with power to drag the soul to perdition. – Eliza Farnham

53764. The human face is the organic seat of beauty. It is the register of value in development, a record of Experience, whose legitimate office is to perfect the life, a legible language to those who will study it, of the majestic mistress, the soul. – Eliza Farnham

53765. Each of the Arts whose office is to refine, purify, adorn, embellish and grace life is under the patronage of a Muse, no god being found worthy to preside over them. – Eliza Farnham

53772. I worked with Cecil B DeMille quite a few times. – Richard Farnsworth

53773. But I don’t really care for directors flaring up and trying to humble some actor, which they would do to try and make an example out of them so everybody else would stay on the ball – and David wasn’t anything like that. – Richard Farnsworth

53774. In a few years there will be only five kings in the world the King of England and the four kings in a pack of cards. – King Farouk

53908. You could make a case that women addicted men to their sexuality and then withdrew their sexuality until we provided them with a source of income. – Warren Farrell

53909. When a man is able to connect with his feelings, he is able to care more. – Warren Farrell

53920. In America and in most of the industrialized world, men are coming to be thought of by feminists in very much the same way that Jews were thought of by early Nazis. The comparison is overwhelmingly scary. – Warren Farrell

53921. I started to get very well recognized in the early seventies as the only man in the United States who had been elected three times to the board of NOW in New York City. – Warren Farrell

53923. For example, the equivalent of a woman being treated as a sex object is a man being treated as a success object. – Warren Farrell

53932. I feel reviewers are tougher on comedies in general. They don’t take them seriously, and the ones that get great reviews are not necessarily the ones that I like. – Bobby Farrelly

53933. I know people watch our movies and they’ll see a lot of images – they call it gross-out – that they don’t like, and I understand that. It’s an important movie and one that’s extremely well done, but the amount of violent imagery was not for me. – Bobby Farrelly

53934. I think that’s the key to being a director: to be able to get the shot and move on quickly. – Bobby Farrelly

53940. The only thing we don’t do together is get in front of an actor and show any indecision at all about what we think. We don’t always agree, so we meet privately, then one or the other will approach the actor. – Bobby Farrelly

53944. It’s a big part of what we do – we test our movies extensively. I’m always there myself. It’s sometimes difficult to sit through, especially if it’s a version of the movie that’s not working particularly well. – Bobby Farrelly

53948. I know this is silly, it’s shallow, it’s bad, I wish I wasn’t this way-but if I meet a girl with no teeth, I just don’t want to date her. It’s creepy of me, I wish I was a bigger person, but that’s my real turn-off. – Peter Farrelly

53949. If you work with Jim Carrey, you’re working with the best. – Peter Farrelly

53950. Nine out of 10 times these guys will hit it-they’ll be on something incredibly funny, but one out of 10, two out of 10, they’ll fall flat on their faces. That’s what makes them great actors: they take those chances, they don’t play it safe. – Peter Farrelly

53951. Our feeling is that the most important thing on a set is that actors have enough confidence to try different things. If there’s stress or tension, they won’t go out on a limb because they won’t want to embarrass themselves if they don’t feel completely comfortable. – Peter Farrelly

53952. There are a lot of laughs in this movie, but it’s not just about the laughs. It’s really about the story, about a guy who finds his soul and realizes what’s truly important. – Peter Farrelly

53960. I get it now; I didn’t get it then. That life is about losing and about doing it as gracefully as possible… and enjoying everything in between. – Mia Farrow

53962. You use words like ‘introvert’ and ‘extrovert,’ various traits of a personality.

53966. I guess in the independent market, I’d be getting offers, but in terms of big studio films, I still have to audition. I don’t think my name is that well-known, I don’t have much of a following to guarantee box office success yet. – Michael Fassbender

53967. I always approach film as a fan. – Michael Fassbender

53968. ‘Hunger’ definitely changed my life, in terms of being recognized by filmmakers, since that was very much a filmmakers’ film. – Michael Fassbender

53970. Even if I’m playing a superhero, it has to be steeped in reality. – Michael Fassbender

53971. Magneto has a whole lot of complexity to him. Emotionally, he’s coming from a very damaged place. I like the ambivalence of it.
