60266. I call everyone ‘Darling’ because I can’t remember their names. – Zsa Zsa Gabor

60267. I don’t remember anybody’s name. How do you think the “dahling” thing got started? – Zsa Zsa Gabor

60268. I know nothing about sex, because I was always married. – Zsa Zsa Gabor

60269. How many husbands have I had? You mean apart from my own? – Zsa Zsa Gabor

60270. I want a man who’s kind and understanding. Is that too much to ask of a millionaire? – Zsa Zsa Gabor

60271. Macho does not prove mucho. – Zsa Zsa Gabor

60272. One of my theories is that men love with their eyes; women love with their ears. – Zsa Zsa Gabor

60274. To a smart girl men are no problem – they’re the answer. – Zsa Zsa Gabor

60282. Conrad Hilton was very generous to me in the divorce settlement. He gave me 5000 Gideon Bibles. – Zsa Zsa Gabor

60283. I think that you get the mood of a song stronger if you get it right that way. On the other hand, you put some songs out live and they don’t catch flight. They just flop. It is hard to tell until they are out there. – Peter Gabriel

60284. I think one of the things about writing in the studio is that the song hasn’t matured, if you like, so quite often the vocals are early attempts. Whereas once you’ve taken it out on the road a bit, you learn more about a song. – Peter Gabriel

60285. I think it is the weak and the young and the minorities that you need to look after to get a healthy creative environment – to get a lot of choices, a lot of different styles of music, a lot experimental stuff that everyone else feeds off. – Peter Gabriel

60286. I think another thing is that we don’t really want exclusivity. We accept that it is in the artist’s interest to be on sale in every place where they sell music. – Peter Gabriel

60287. I’m a bit cynical that it ever will be addressed properly. I think it is healthy to get some sort of copyright protection. But some of it has gone on forever. – Peter Gabriel

60288. One thing that really appeals to me is this idea of music being a living thing that has an evolution that, in a way, enables the artist to sell a process rather than a piece of product. – Peter Gabriel

60289. The industry does have some influence on who gets other awards. With the Mercury Prize, they don’t. Jon comes from the business, but his heart is still very much in the music. Currently, we have about 12 major names that have said they want to be a part of MUDDA. – Peter Gabriel

60290. The real being of language is that into which we are taken up when we hear it – what is said. – Hans-Georg Gadamer

60291. I basically only read books that are over 2,000 years old. – Hans-Georg Gadamer

60292. The more language is a living operation, the less we are aware of it. Thus it follows from the self-forgetfulness of language that its real being consists in what is said in it. – Hans-Georg Gadamer

60293. It is one of the primary motives of modern art that it wants to abolish the distance which the viewer, the consumer, the audience maintain vis-a-vis a work of art. – Hans-Georg Gadamer

60312. He was the only person caught in the collapse, and afterward, most of his work was recovered too, and it is still spoken of, when it is noted, with high regard, though seldom played. – William Gaddis

60313. What is it they want from the man that they didn’t get from the work? What do they expect? What is there left when he’s done with his work, what’s any artist but the dregs of his work, the human shambles that follows it around? – William Gaddis

60314. How some of the writers I come across get through their books without dying of boredom is beyond me. – William Gaddis

60333. ). Dozens of nations have agreed to join in monitoring and, if necessary, intercepting and boarding ships on the high seas in the event they are suspected of engaging in one or both of these threatening activities. – Frank Gaffney

60334. The instrument that I never learned how to play was my fans. You know, they are the part of the story that nobody teaches you. I just want to do the right thing; I want to be a voice with them, among them. – Lady Gaga

60335. I’ve been actually really very pleased to see how much awareness was raised around bullying, and how deeply it affects everyone. You know, you don’t have to be the loser kid in high school to be bullied. Bullying and being picked on comes in so many different forms. – Lady Gaga

60336. I’ve had grand pianos that are more expensive than, like, a year’s worth of rent. – Lady Gaga

60337. If you are not being bullied all I would say – cause I like to talk about the other side of it as well – is you know, be someone that nurtures, and if there’s someone in your class that maybe doesn’t have a lot of friends, be the person that sits with them in the cafeteria sometimes; be the bigger person. – Lady Gaga

60338. If you only believe that you’re an artist when you have a big advance in your pocket and a single coming out, I would say that’s quite soulless. You have to have a sense of your own greatness and your own ability from a very deep place inside you. I am the one with the litmus test in my hands of what people need to hear next. – Lady Gaga

60339. In a sense I portray myself in a very androgynous way, and I love androgyny. – Lady Gaga

60340. I’m working on bringing the instant film camera back as part of the future. – Lady Gaga

60341. Pop stars should not eat. – Lady Gaga

60342. I like pushing boundaries. – Lady Gaga

60343. What I’ve discovered is that in art, as in music, there’s a lot of truth-and then there’s a lie. The artist is essentially creating his work to make this lie a truth, but he slides it in amongst all the others. The tiny little lie is the moment I live for, my moment. It’s the moment that the audience falls in love. – Lady Gaga

60344. What I’ve learned is that you really don’t need to be a celebrity or have money or have the paparazzi following you around to be famous. – Lady Gaga

60345. When the whole world has their eyes on you, if you say something that doesn’t truly come from your spirit and your soul, or if you wear something that doesn’t come from your spirit and your soul, it’s an injustice to your position. And so, I’m really myself every single day and I do it because I know my fans would want me to. – Lady Gaga

60346. Where I come from it was really unheard of to be at a party and someone says, ‘What kind of music do you make?’, and you say, ‘Pop music.’ You may as well have ‘I’m not cool’ stamped on your forehead. – Lady Gaga

60347. I’m definitely a Polaroid camera girl. For me, what I’m really excited about is bringing back the artistry and the nature of Polaroid. – Lady Gaga

60348. I was performing in New York and my friends started to call me Gaga, they said I was very theatrical and they said, ‘You’re Gaga’. – Lady Gaga

60349. I live halfway between reality and theater at all times. And I was born this way. – Lady Gaga

60350. I hope that what you take away from my album is not just the music – which I did want to be fun, and I did want it to be about individuality, but please also take away from it that there’s no dream that’s too big. – Lady Gaga

60351. I had this dream, and I really wanted to be a star. And I was almost a monster in the way that I was really fearless with my ambitions. – Lady Gaga

60352. I guess you could say I devoted myself so strongly to my music that for awhile I forgot about my family. But I only get one set of parents, and I think I forgot about that for a little while. – Lady Gaga

60353. I don’t like Los Angeles. The people are awful and terribly shallow, and everybody wants to be famous but nobody wants to play the game. I’m from New York. I will kill to get what I need. – Lady Gaga

60354. I am so excited to extend myself behind the scenes as a designer and to – as my father puts it – finally have a real job. – Lady Gaga

60355. Every bit of me is devoted to love and art. And I aspire to try to be a teacher to my young fans who feel just like I felt when I was younger. I just felt like a freak. I guess what I’m trying to say is I’m trying to liberate them, I want to free them of their fears and make them feel that they can make their own space in the world. – Lady Gaga

60356. ‘Born this Way’ is about being yourself, and loving who you are and being proud. – Lady Gaga

60357. A record deal doesn’t make you an artist; you make yourself an artist. – Lady Gaga

60358. So there’s nothing more provocative than taking a genre that everybody who’s cool hates – and then making it cool. – Lady Gaga

60359. I think what made it difficult for people to get, and still makes it difficult for people to get, is the theatrical nature of the work and the fact that, my music doesn’t exist without the performance-art element. – Lady Gaga

60360. Lady Gaga is my name. If you know me, and you call me Stefani, you don’t really know me at all. – Lady Gaga

60361. I could have gone on flying through space forever. – Yuri Gagarin

60362. I see Earth! It is so beautiful! – Yuri Gagarin

60363. I became active in politics because I saw the possibility, if we all sat back and did nothing, of a world in which there would no longer be any stages for actors to act on. – Helen Gahagan

60364. I never felt I left the stage. – Helen Gahagan

60365. I realized that public affairs were also my affairs. – Helen Gahagan

60366. In trying to make something new, half the undertaking lies in discovering whether it can be done. Once it has been established that it can, duplication is inevitable. – Helen Gahagan

60367. When a marriage works, nothing on earth can take its place. – Helen Gahagan

60368. The current total of countries in the world with First Amendments is one. You have guaranteed freedom of speech. Other countries don’t have that. – Neil Gaiman

60369. I’m one of those writers who tends to be really good at making outlines and sticking to them. I’m very good at doing that, but I don’t like it. It sort of takes a lot of the fun out. – Neil Gaiman

60370. In many ways, it was much, much harder to get the first book contract. The hardest thing probably overall has been learning not to trust people, publicists and so forth, implicitly. – Neil Gaiman

60371. Is the chemical aftertaste the reason why people eat hot dogs, or is it some kind of bonus? – Neil Gaiman

60372. It has always been the prerogative of children and half-wits to point out that the emperor has no clothes. But the half-wit remains a half-wit, and the emperor remains an emperor. – Neil Gaiman

60373. It is a fool’s prerogative to utter truths that no one else will speak. – Neil Gaiman

60374. Life – and I don’t suppose I’m the first to make this comparison – is a disease: sexually transmitted, and invariably fatal. – Neil Gaiman

60375. Partly because I get such astonishingly nice fans. – Neil Gaiman

60376. Rock and roll stars have it much better than writers when they’re on a tour. – Neil Gaiman

60377. I’m a fairly undisciplined writer. – Neil Gaiman

60378. So the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund is out there preserving and fighting for, and sometimes winning and sometimes losing, the fight for First Amendment rights in comics and, more generally, for freedom of speech. – Neil Gaiman

60379. I lost some time once. It’s always in the last place you look for it. – Neil Gaiman

60380. The world always seems brighter when you’ve just made something that wasn’t there before. – Neil Gaiman

60381. So I went out and bought myself a copy of the Writer and Artist Yearbook, bought lots of magazines and got on the phone and talked to editors about ideas for stories. Pretty soon I found myself hired to do interviews and articles and went off and did them. – Neil Gaiman

60382. I’ll agonize over sentences. Mostly because you’re trying to create specific effects with sentences, and because there are a number of different voices in the book. – Neil Gaiman

60383. I was the kind of kid whose parents would drop him off at the local town library on their way to work, and I’d go and work my way through the children’s area. – Neil Gaiman

60384. I was always so relieved that anyone wants to publish anything I’ve written. – Neil Gaiman

60385. There’s a glorious sense of freedom in comedy, just allowing myself to tell jokes, allowing myself to interrupt myself and tell old African folk stories that I made up – or didn’t – and Jamaican stories. – Neil Gaiman

60386. I started writing when I was about 20, 21 maybe. – Neil Gaiman

60387. I think of myself as a very lazy author. – Neil Gaiman

60388. I don’t know if proud is the right word, but I am somebody who does not, on the whole, have the highest regard for my own stuff in that when I look all I get to see are the flaws. – Neil Gaiman

60389. Great, big, serious novels always get awards. If it’s a battle between a great, big, serious novel and a funny novel, the funny novel is doomed. – Neil Gaiman

60390. Because, if one is writing novels today, concentrating on the beauty of the prose is right up there with concentrating on your semi-colons, for wasted effort. – Neil Gaiman

60391. As far as I’m concerned, the entire reason for becoming a writer is not having to get up in the morning. – Neil Gaiman

60392. And there never was an apple, in Adam’s opinion, that wasn’t worth the trouble you got into for eating it. – Neil Gaiman

60393. American Gods is about 200,000 words long, and I’m sure there are words that are simply in there ’cause I like them. I know I couldn’t justify each and every one of them. – Neil Gaiman

60394. Also, I’ve already won all the awards. – Neil Gaiman

60395. A nice, easy place for freedom of speech to be eroded is comics, because comics are a natural target whenever an election comes up. – Neil Gaiman

60396. I wanted to write something that would be a comedy in the sense of making people feel happier when they finish it than they did when began it. – Neil Gaiman

60397. I loved writing a book in which, in some ways, it’s very, very classical, and in some ways I’m breaking lots of rules about what you can do and what you can’t do. – Neil Gaiman

60398. Things need not have happened to be true. Tales and adventures are the shadow truths that will endure when mere facts are dust and ashes and forgotten. – Neil Gaiman

60399. You get ideas from daydreaming. You get ideas from being bored. You get ideas all the time. The only difference between writers and other people is we notice when we’re doing it. – Neil Gaiman

60400. This is a work of fiction. All the characters in it, human and otherwise, are imaginary, excepting only certain of the fairy folk, whom it might be unwise to offend by casting doubts on their existence. Or lack thereof. – Neil Gaiman

60401. We all not only could know everything. We do. We just tell ourselves we don’t to make it all bearable. – Neil Gaiman

60412. I’m a very shy person towards my intimacy and private life. – Charlotte Gainsbourg

60413. I’m desperate to work again. I’ve often had those periods, but two years was the longest. – Charlotte Gainsbourg

60414. In France, you’re with the crew, and you have lunch with them. It’s more like a family. – Charlotte Gainsbourg

60415. It’s more than a job. It’s very personal, so when you’re hurt, you’re really hurt inside. – Charlotte Gainsbourg

60416. It’s nice that we have all these different films. – Charlotte Gainsbourg

60417. Letting go of things and not being afraid of being ridiculous or over the top – I think that’s the main thing for me to work on. – Charlotte Gainsbourg

60418. The character is close to me, except that I haven’t lived through those situations, so it’s not completely me. – Charlotte Gainsbourg

60419. Wanting to do it was much more powerful than the fright. – Charlotte Gainsbourg

60420. There were always questions about my parents; I got so fed up with that. – Charlotte Gainsbourg

60421. I went on television and I wouldn’t say a word; I feel so stupid when I watch them again. – Charlotte Gainsbourg

60422. The English was really my mother, it was never me. Being the daughter of my father, I always felt very French. – Charlotte Gainsbourg

60423. The more sincere I could be, the better it would be for the film. – Charlotte Gainsbourg

60424. Everyone gets the feeling that they know you and they know your life, and I felt really embarrassed by that. – Charlotte Gainsbourg

60425. The more you turn down things, the more difficult it becomes to feel that the next one will be right. – Charlotte Gainsbourg

60428. Girls can wear jeans, cut their hair short, wear shirts and boots, ’cause it’s okay to be a boy, but for a boy to look like a girl is degrading. – Charlotte Gainsbourg

60429. I couldn’t do anything else, I enjoy it so much. But I find it tough. – Charlotte Gainsbourg

60430. I found it very difficult to explain to someone why you did a film. It’s not like having a conversation. – Charlotte Gainsbourg

60431. I hated seeing myself on screen. I was full of complexes. I hated my face for a very, very long time. – Charlotte Gainsbourg

60432. I still find it hard to push my own limits. I know where my limits are and that I always have to push myself. – Charlotte Gainsbourg

60433. I thought people would ask me really personal questions because I’ve shown more of myself, but it’s a comedy, and people understand that it’s a game we play. – Charlotte Gainsbourg

60434. I was putting all those pressures on myself. – Charlotte Gainsbourg

60435. I used to hate being recognised. – Charlotte Gainsbourg

60438. Happiness is realizing that nothing is too important. – Antonio Gala

60439. There’s something about the Foreign Service that takes the guts out of people. – Evan G. Galbraith

60440. The State Department desperately needs to be vigorously harnessed. It has too big a role to play in the formulation of foreign policy, and foreign policy is too important to be left up to foreign service officers. – Evan G. Galbraith

60441. The process by which banks create money is so simple that the mind is repelled. – John Kenneth Galbraith

60442. The only function of economic forecasting is to make astrology look respectable. – John Kenneth Galbraith

60443. There is something wonderful in seeing a wrong-headed majority assailed by truth. – John Kenneth Galbraith

60444. The salary of the chief executive of a large corporation is not a market award for achievement. It is frequently in the nature of a warm personal gesture by the individual to himself. – John Kenneth Galbraith

60445. There are few ironclad rules of diplomacy but to one there is no exception. When an official reports that talks were useful, it can safely be concluded that nothing was accomplished. – John Kenneth Galbraith

60446. There are times in politics when you must be on the right side and lose. – John Kenneth Galbraith

60447. There is certainly no absolute standard of beauty. That precisely is what makes its pursuit so interesting. – John Kenneth Galbraith

60448. There’s a certain part of the contented majority who love anybody who is worth a billion dollars. – John Kenneth Galbraith

60449. Total physical and mental inertia are highly agreeable, much more so than we allow ourselves to imagine. A beach not only permits such inertia but enforces it, thus neatly eliminating all problems of guilt. It is now the only place in our overly active world that does. – John Kenneth Galbraith

60616. When I was fired from my post as General of the Fighter Arm, I was to give proof that this jet was a superior fighter. And that’s when we did it. I think we did it. – Adolf Galland

60617. We have built a total of about 1250 of this aircraft, but only fifty were allowed to be used as fighters – as interceptors. And out of this fifty, there were never more than 25 operational. So we had only a very, very few. – Adolf Galland

60618. We had at our disposal the first operational jet, which superseded by at least 150 knots the fastest American and English fighters. This was a unique situation. – Adolf Galland

60619. This would only come if you have a revolutionary change in technology like the jet brought about. – Adolf Galland

60623. It’s unbelievable what one squadron of twelve aircraft did to tip the balance. – Adolf Galland

60624. I would like to mention that I have flown the 262 first in May ’43. At this time, the aircraft was completely secret. I first knew of the existence of this aircraft only early in ’42 – even in my position. This aircraft didn’t have any priority in design or production. – Adolf Galland

60625. I made a written report which is still today in existence. I have a photocopy of it, and I am saying that in production this aircraft could perhaps substitute for three propeller- driven aircraft of the best existing type. This was my impression. – Adolf Galland

60633. I am not wrong in the belief that its public funds are more secure than those of all the European powers. – Albert Gallatin

60637. The fifth amendment of the U.S. Constitution guarantees that no private property shall be taken for a public use without the payment of just compensation. – Elton Gallegly

60639. President Reagan achieved such successes because when you sat in a room with him, there could be over 1,000 people in the room, yet you felt like there was only the two of you, and his wonderful wit would put you at ease. That was a tremendous gift. – Elton Gallegly

60640. More than 65,000 horses were slaughtered in the United States in 2004, a 50 percent increase since 2002. – Elton Gallegly

60641. It’s been argued that of all the animals humans have domesticated, the horse is the most important to our history. For thousands of years, horses were our most reliable mode of transportation. – Elton Gallegly

60642. It is our hope that in future discussions with the Mexican government, you will encourage Mexico to do its part to address illegal immigration rather than encourage their citizens to illegally enter the U.S. – Elton Gallegly

60643. Instead, California is one of only 10 states that provides in-state college and university tuition to illegal immigrants. That’s grossly unfair to a legal high school student who moves out of California for a year, then returns to attend college. – Elton Gallegly

60644. Congress has greatly tightened the loopholes terrorists can use to harm Americans. We need to do more. We need controls immediately on what forms of ID are adequate to board planes and enter secure sites. – Elton Gallegly

60645. We are a nation of immigrants, but we are also a nation of laws. – Elton Gallegly

60646. In addition, California spends nearly $1 billion a year in Medi-Cal services for an average of 780,000 illegal immigrants a month, over and above emergency health services. – Elton Gallegly

60647. As a former mayor, I know that local governments must have control over land use decisions. – Elton Gallegly

60648. Consular cards are easily obtained with no proof of true identity and are easily forged. – Elton Gallegly

60649. Consular cards were not designed to be identification and no treaty recognizes them as such. Legal travelers, visitors and long-term residents carried passports, visas or green cards for that purpose. – Elton Gallegly

60650. Consular offices make no attempt to determine whether the person obtaining the card is legally in the United States. In fact, the only people who need these cards are illegal immigrants, criminals and terrorists. Consular cards also are easily forged. – Elton Gallegly

60651. Every unskilled illegal immigrant who enters the United States for work drives up healthcare costs for every American. And, every illegal immigrant we turn a blind eye toward weakens the rule of law our country is founded on. – Elton Gallegly

60652. Horsemeat in many European and Asian countries is consumed as a delicacy. – Elton Gallegly

60653. Hospitals are closing across the country due to the burden of illegal immigration, college students find that summer jobs have dried up due to illegal immigration, and wages across the board are depressed by the overwhelming influx of cheap and illegal labor. – Elton Gallegly
