54223. Unfair trade agreements, passed by both Republicans and Democrats, have sent millions of jobs to other countries. We need to stop this hemorrhaging and find ways for American workers to compete in the new market. – Russ Feingold

54225. Health care for all Americans is the most pressing domestic issue today. It’s far past time for the President and Congress to deliver health care to everyone. – Russ Feingold

54226. Global warming is real. It is happening today. It is being charted by our satellites. It is being charted by our scientists.

54227. I basically believe the medical insurance industry should be nonprofit, not profit-making. There is no way a health reform plan will work when it is implemented by an industry that seeks to return money to shareholders instead of using that money to provide health care. – Diane Feinstein

54228. Let me say this: I believe closing Guantanamo is in our Nation’s national security interest.

54229. Our climate is changing. The Earth’s climate has, in fact, warmed by 1.1 to 1.6 degrees Fahrenheit since the industrial revolution. People look at this and say: Oh, that is not very much.

54230. The criteria for serving one’s country should be competence, courage and willingness to serve.

54232. Today we have a health insurance industry where the first and foremost goal is to maximize profits for shareholders and CEOs, not to cover patients who have fallen ill or to compensate doctors and hospitals for their services. It is an industry that is increasingly concentrated and where Americans are paying more to receive less. – Diane Feinstein

54233. We have a chance to wind down and expedite the removal of 96 percent of the world’s nuclear weapons.

54256. There were two things going on: 1) I had already established in my own mind where I wanted to go with the next series, and having James around as a Grey Eminence would have complicated matters. He had had an amazing life and it was time to bid him good-bye. – Raymond E. Feist

54257. The issue of the Betrayal was so central to that, I felt the need to comment upon it. My choices were to ignore the games and put them “outside” of continuity or to integrate them. I chose the latter. – Raymond E. Feist

54321. Domestic inflation reflects domestic monetary policy. – Martin Feldstein

54322. Even if the dollar does decline during the coming months, the delays in the response of exports and imports to the more competitive dollar will mean that the increase in aggregate demand from this source may not happen for a year or more. – Martin Feldstein

54323. First, I think the science of monetary economics has clearly gotten better. – Martin Feldstein

54324. Homeowners who refinanced their mortgages took out cash and reduced their monthly payments at the same time. Much of the cash obtained by refinancing was spent on consumer durables, home improvements and the like. – Martin Feldstein

54325. I think that over the last few decades, we have seen better economic outcomes than in the past. – Martin Feldstein

54326. If the Federal Reserve pursues a strong dollar at home while the dollar becomes more competitive in global markets, we can achieve both price stability and a more balanced path of economic growth. – Martin Feldstein

54327. But because we in the United States finance our current account deficit by borrowing in our own currency, we can move to a more competitive dollar without the adverse effects that followed currency declines in other countries. – Martin Feldstein

54328. Increased government spending can provide a temporary stimulus to demand and output but in the longer run higher levels of government spending crowd out private investment or require higher taxes that weaken growth by reducing incentives to save, invest, innovate, and work. – Martin Feldstein

54329. And finally, no matter how good the science gets, there are problems that inevitably depend on judgement, on art, on a feel for financial markets. – Martin Feldstein

54331. So just as I want pilots on the planes that I fly, when it comes to monetary policy, I want to think that there is someone with sound judgement at the controls. – Martin Feldstein

54332. The good news is that a competitive dollar in the global market and a strong dollar at home are compatible in both the long run and during the transition to a more competitive dollar. – Martin Feldstein

54333. The more competitive value of the dollar turned around the trade deficit. – Martin Feldstein

54334. The only way that we can reduce our financial dependence on the inflow of funds from the rest of the world is to reduce our trade deficit. – Martin Feldstein

54335. The price of imported oil in the US doubled between summer 2003 and summer 2005, reducing consumers’ purchasing power by more than 1 per cent of gross domestic product. – Martin Feldstein

54336. Thirty years ago, many economists argued that inflation was a kind of minor inconvenience and that the cost of reducing inflation was too high a price to pay. No one would make those arguments today. – Martin Feldstein

54337. To finance this trade deficit, the U.S. has to borrow from the rest of the world or sell American assets like stocks, businesses, and real estate to the rest of the world. – Martin Feldstein

54338. In short, both experience and economic theory imply that the US could now t to a more competitive dollar without experiencing either increased inflation or decreased economic growth. – Martin Feldstein

54339. An increase in the relative price of products from the low wage manufacturers in Asia and Latin America will also make those products less attractive to American consumers. – Martin Feldstein

54340. Although economists have studied the sensitivity of import and export volumes to changes in the exchange rate, there is still much uncertainty about just how much the dollar must change to bring about any given reduction in our trade deficit. – Martin Feldstein

54341. After all, an overvalued dollar gives us the ability to buy foreign goods at lower prices. And the existing volume of exports brings more yen and euros than they would if the dollar were more competitive. – Martin Feldstein

54342. A second reason why science cannot replace judgement is the behavior of financial markets. – Martin Feldstein

54343. A rise in the level of saving can reduce aggregate activity temporarily but only a sustained high level of saving makes it possible to have the sustained high level of business investment that contributes to the long-run growth of output. – Martin Feldstein

54344. We pay some price when necessary to bring down inflation but that price is temporary and is not large relative to the permanent gain from reduced inflation. – Martin Feldstein

54345. Unless the trade deficit shrinks, the combination of the trade deficit and the interest and dividend payments to foreigners will grow ever more rapidly. – Martin Feldstein

54346. We are particularly poor at the open economy issues. – Martin Feldstein

54347. But the primary reason for wanting the dollar to become more competitive in the near future is that we may need an increase in exports this year and in 2007 to sustain the economy’s current pace of expansion. – Martin Feldstein

54348. The poor man is he who, having much, craves for more. – Marcus Minucius Felix

54349. When I pick up the ball and it feels nice and light and small I know I’m going to have a good day. But if I picked it up and it’s big and heavy, I know I’m liable to get into a little trouble. – Bob Feller

54601. It is impossible for any number which is a power greater than the second to be written as a sum of two like powers. I have a truly marvelous demonstration of this proposition which this margin is too narrow to contain. – Pierre de Fermat

54602. There’s two possible outcomes: if the result confirms the hypothesis, then you’ve made a discovery. If the result is contrary to the hypothesis, then you’ve made a discovery. – Enrico Fermi

54609. By reason of weird translation, many such sets of instructions read like poems anyhow. – Brian Ferneyhough

54610. Actually, most things I say in public lead more or less directly to my own compositional practice, so I should be careful about generalizing lest they come back to haunt me. – Brian Ferneyhough

54614. Sometimes one can be so closely involved with things that the larger context is lost to view. – Brian Ferneyhough

54615. The idea of ‘machine assemblage’ is, especially, very alien to my sensibility, since it suggests a relative indifference of the strata to one another during the process of construction. – Brian Ferneyhough

54616. Questioning the nature and implications of liminal instances necessarily involves failure, if only in the specifically technical sense of entering spaces where prevailing criteria of success scarcely apply. – Brian Ferneyhough

54618. Why, in such a case, should the performer essay any sort of considered approach at all? – Brian Ferneyhough

54619. When I left Europe in 1987 I did so with the thought that my relevance as a composition teacher would benefit from a certain cool distance to certain tendencies I had been observing for several years with increasing disquiet. – Brian Ferneyhough

54620. What makes a specific quality or quantity of innovation retain its intense newness over the years? – Brian Ferneyhough

54621. This was possible only by dint of extended periods of frequently quite painful reflection and digestion. – Brian Ferneyhough

54622. The Western musical canon came about not merely by accumulation, but by opposition and subversion, both to the ruling powers on whom composers depended for their livelihoods and to other musics. – Brian Ferneyhough

54623. Hence my obstinate emphasis on stylistic continuity from work to work rather than specific sibling relationships between the individual work and other members of its stylistic ‘family’ in the world outside. – Brian Ferneyhough

54624. The past nine years in San Diego have represented such a period of questioning. – Brian Ferneyhough

54625. Other composers have taken this particular technique much further than I in the meantime, with the result that the Law of Diminishing Returns has begun to apply. – Brian Ferneyhough

54626. There would seem to be a limit, even for an art preoccupied with boundaries and transgressions, beyond which a work reaches its breaking point and becomes an actual failure, a mere experimentation. – Brian Ferneyhough

54627. I would not say that I was, these days, a ‘student’ of philosophy, although in my youth I was quite deeply involved with certain aspects of the British pragmatists. – Brian Ferneyhough

54628. Certainly being in California has encouraged a sustained commitment to rethinking the nature, purposes, and relevance of the contemporary arts, specifically music, for a society which by and large seems to manage quite well without them. – Brian Ferneyhough

54629. Composers dialogue – and obsessively, bitterly argue – with other composers, often over the span of several centuries. – Brian Ferneyhough

54630. I am certainly not arguing for the de facto autonomy of the individual work, even though there is much to be said for making the attempt to see it in that light as one facet of the reception process. – Brian Ferneyhough

54631. I don’t see ‘lines of force’ as being destructive, except to the extent that they are exclusively traceable through observance of the path of distorted material left in their wake. – Brian Ferneyhough

54632. I suppose that the scope and implications of such forces have rendered my personal accounting ritual pretty much obsolete. That’s how things sometimes go. – Brian Ferneyhough

54633. Naturally enough, I couldn’t have foreseen the vast sea change which has come upon that scene as a result of German reunification and associated events. – Brian Ferneyhough

54634. I’m perplexed, though, by your application of the term ‘negative’ to my figural imagery. – Brian Ferneyhough

54635. If nothing is at risk, nothing is established. – Brian Ferneyhough

54636. In my own recent String Trio I attempt to superimpose two quite different sets of formal strategies, both of which, ultimately, refer back to historical precedent. – Brian Ferneyhough

54637. My own position is, that it is largely up to the work itself to suggest the nature of these referential points without dimensions in and through the processes by which the distance between them is maintained. – Brian Ferneyhough

54638. I frequently compose out the entire metric structure of a piece in modified cyclic form, where each cyclic revolution undergoes some form of ‘variation’ much as if measure lengths were concrete musical ‘material.’ – Brian Ferneyhough

54639. It is still true that it is easier to compose a poem in the form of a manual for adjusting a VCR than it is to write a piece using just tuning as a symphony. – Brian Ferneyhough

54640. If the work of art is to continue pursuing the vision of both being in and of the world but nevertheless in some fashion being more than just one more object to the mounting clutter, this is the specific point, I think, where this must be assured. – Brian Ferneyhough

54641. In my model, important interference phenomena arise when individual strata come into contact. These chaotic fluctuations are, I suppose, what my music is really ‘about.’ – Brian Ferneyhough

54642. In any case, the fewer boundaries that exist hindering free movement between all forms of articulate human cognition, the better. – Brian Ferneyhough

54643. I was raised a Catholic and when you’re raised a Catholic they don’t teach you to think for yourself. You’re taught not to think too deeply about things. – Abel Ferrara

54644. But each time I seemed to be climbing into a roller coaster and finding myself coming through the downhill run with that sort of dazed feeling that we all know. – Enzo Ferrari

54645. Aerodynamics are for people who can’t build engines. – Enzo Ferrari

54646. The client is not always right. – Enzo Ferrari

54647. Boulez seemed to me to be a guy who wrote laws. Like a company lawyer. – Luc Ferrari

54648. So the ideology was that: use sounds as instruments, as sounds on tape, without the causality. It was no longer a clarinet or a spring or a piano, but a sound with a form, a development, a life of its own. – Luc Ferrari

54649. You turned on the radio and heard all kinds of things. – Luc Ferrari

54650. With the piano I’m completely in control of the gestural situation-not that I’m going to play the piece myself, but I know what’s difficult, what’s impossible. – Luc Ferrari

54651. Whereas Schaeffer and Henry were working like samplers, their idea was to capture those sounds which couldn’t be serially calibrated because they were too complex in character. – Luc Ferrari

54652. When the Domaine Musical started up, I wasn’t part of it. They were the major players in contemporary music at that time, braodcasting old and new composers’ work. And I wasn’t one of them. – Luc Ferrari

54653. Well, first I studied piano. I wasn’t very satisfied because I though my teachers were dumb… and repressive. – Luc Ferrari

54677. I didn’t serve on a committee that dealt with foreign policy. – Geraldine Ferraro

54678. But I do think its necessary to have debates. – Geraldine Ferraro

54679. But I made one mistake which I would never repeat as a member of Congress when I was in Washington, and that was when I was elected I didn’t go on trips because I was so afraid of having someone accuse me of taking junkets. – Geraldine Ferraro

54680. If you ask me a question, don’t tell me what the question is in advance, ’cause I’d rather not know. – Geraldine Ferraro

54681. I do believe in the power of prayer. – Geraldine Ferraro

54682. And it was, it was not beating George Bush, believe it or not, the bottom line as far as I was concerned was introducing to the public who Gerry Ferraro was. – Geraldine Ferraro

54683. I don’t consider myself a survivor; that’s someone who has gone through something terrible. – Geraldine Ferraro

54692. Saturday Night Live is such a comedy boot camp in a way, because you get to work with so many different people who come in to host the show and you get thrown into so many situations and learn how to think on your feet, so filmmaking actually feels slow, in a good way. – Will Ferrell

54693. A lot of people have gotten into comedy because of certain influences in their lives or events that were painful, and I really have wracked my brain to figure it out. I pretty much have had a normal childhood. Maybe it was too normal. – Will Ferrell

54694. All you have in comedy, in general, is just going with your instincts. You can only hope that other people think that what you think is funny is funny. I don’t have an answer but I just try to plough straight ahead. – Will Ferrell

54695. I have only been funny about seventy four per cent of the time. Yes I think that is right. Seventy-four per cent of the time. – Will Ferrell

54696. I think a lot of the instincts you have doing comedy are really the same for doing drama, in that it’s essentially about listening. The way I approach comedy, is you have to commit to everything as if it’s a dramatic role, meaning you play it straight. – Will Ferrell

54706. The attitude is very important. Because, your behavior radiates how you feel. – Lou Ferrigno

54707. It’s funny how sometimes how the public some people think I was born like this. That I maybe I sleep and I do big muscle, but its a lot of work to look like this and to be in this kind of condition. – Lou Ferrigno

54709. I never think about losing. – Lou Ferrigno

54710. I know right a way there’s a person that’s very insecure; that he’s trying to out do me. And, ah, like I was saying before, if you give one-hundred percent of your best, and you may have fault, but there is nothing you can do, because you gave one-hundred percent. – Lou Ferrigno

54716. All those rappers, they’re the only glamorous people working in music now. They dress up in these chains of gold, cars, girls and this and that, high-heeled shoes. – Bryan Ferry

54717. Performing was terrifying. – Bryan Ferry

54718. You can never get silence anywhere nowadays, have you noticed? – Bryan Ferry

54719. Women! I have no idea. I don’t know anything about women at all. They’re a complete mystery to me. – Bryan Ferry

54720. The quality of the writing, really. Simple as that. Beautiful words. It’s very nice as a singer to do great songs, which have wonderful lyrics and strong feelings underneath the song. – Bryan Ferry

54721. Secretly, I wanted to look like Jimi Hendrix, but I could never quite pull it off. – Bryan Ferry

54722. When I stopped touring in the early ’80s for a few years, it was a mistake looking back. I lost touch with my audience in a way and I think that was a bad career move. – Bryan Ferry

54724. But when you get music and words together, that can be a very powerful thing. – Bryan Ferry

54725. I can never predict what’s going to happen. – Bryan Ferry

54726. I didn’t really want to give up music. – Bryan Ferry

54732. I like the name Atomic Kitten. It’s so great. – Bryan Ferry

54733. Words can be very powerful. I find them very difficult. – Bryan Ferry

54734. I met John Lennon and he was with his wife in Tokyo. I met him there. – Bryan Ferry

54735. Oh yes, much, because music is just something that comes to you. You don’t question it. – Bryan Ferry

54736. I’d love to follow the Tour de France one day. It’s a really exciting spectacle. I’ve only seen it once as it was coming into Paris and that was very exciting for me. I have memories of that. – Bryan Ferry

54745. Like the philosopher, the author views his task as one of establishing a clear connection between life and history, and of making the past bear fruit for the present and future. – Lion Feuchtwanger

54746. There’s only a step from the sublime to the ridiculous, but there’s no road leading from the ridiculous to the sublime. – Lion Feuchtwanger

54747. What is a historian, anyway? It is someone who uses facts to record the development of humanity. – Lion Feuchtwanger

54748. I have always made an effort to render every detail of my reality with the greatest accuracy; but I have never paid attention to whether my presentation of historical facts was an exact one. – Lion Feuchtwanger

54761. I think if you ask any of us here, we all dreamed of ending up on Saturday Night Live. I remember thinking, ‘I’ll just keep doing this as long as I can get away with it.’ – Tina Fey

54762. I was the editor of the school newspaper and in drama club and choir, so I was not a popular girl in the traditional sense, but I think I was known for being relatively scathing. – Tina Fey

54763. If you want to make an audience laugh, you dress a man up like an old lady and push her down the stairs. If you want to make comedy writers laugh, you push an actual old lady down the stairs. – Tina Fey

54764. Somewhere around the fifth or seventh grade I figured out that I could ingratiate myself to people by making them laugh. Essentially, I was just trying to make them like me. But after a while it became part of my identity. – Tina Fey

54765. Yeah, it’s tough being smart and sexy, too. I have to say, I’m really not that attractive. Until I met my husband, I could not get a date. I promise you it’s true. My husband Jeff Richmond saw a diamond in the rough and took me in. – Tina Fey
