65618. Music is a reservoir… of sounds. – Dexter Gordon

65627. The last thing in the world I should have done was go into the theater because was inordinately shy as a young man. I couldn’t open my mouth. At a party, I was the one stuck up against the wall. I was embarrassed about talking. I felt that I couldn’t talk well. – Gale Gordon

65628. I think anybody who has been in the theater, prefers it. Television is a… factory. You turn out things on a revolving assembly line. You don’t have time to perfect anything in television. – Gale Gordon

65629. I had admired Richard Burton for years and years before I had ever worked with him. He was a great, great actor. It was a joy to get to know him as a person. – Gale Gordon

65653. I mean, most of it is probably more obscure and just more noisy than either of those two bands, but Thurston has stuff all the time that he’s involved with that is fairly obscure and experimental. – Kim Gordon

65655. I just happened to start playing music for the conceptual ideas. – Kim Gordon

65656. I have a really hard time writing my own lyrics for this record, because one, I had to write so many and also I was kind of perplexed by the idea of how I was going to sing and play… because at that time, we hadn’t really thought about asking someone else. – Kim Gordon

65657. But everything has been so gradual that it’s sort of all come from, just hard work and basically being at it. – Kim Gordon

65658. And then, I was thinking of doing a record just like starting with voice, because I did this one song that was just kind of a cappella, and I did it for this art piece I did where people could come and play music to go with a voice. – Kim Gordon

65659. Because our daughters have school and it’s just such a hassle going down to New York all the time, we can really only go on the weekends, we kind of… Steve came up here and worked out stuff for the second half of the record. – Kim Gordon

65670. I want to take some jams and really concentrate on hooking up with Page because, since he’s the only one not next to me, and his sound is mainly coming from my monitor rather than through the air, it’s a little harder for me to hook up with him. – Mike Gordon

65671. We have been trying to play a lot of different kinds of music, and probably the next album will go back more towards the direction where you couldn’t classify each song as a certain kind of music. This album you can. – Mike Gordon

65672. Travelling to different countries is a goal. I wouldn’t mind playing huge places if we got an opportunity to, but it’s nice to play small places too. Fish was saying yesterday that he doesn’t ever want to play stadiums, or maybe he would once, he said. – Mike Gordon

65673. This is my second bass that Paul built me. There were some changes that were made. Sometimes I think of changes that could be made having to do with both the sound and the feel. It’s definitely a beautiful instrument. – Mike Gordon

65674. There’s no way we could play a country song as well as a country band or a Latin song as well as a Latin band. We could never expect to do that. We just keep doing what we do, what we know how to do. We sound like ourselves. – Mike Gordon

65675. The worst thing I could be thinking is how could I be a cool bass player. – Mike Gordon

65676. The way that we imitate each others’ riffs is something that other bands don’t do as much. If we’re jamming with a jazz band, or I am jamming with a jazz band, I have to catch myself, the tendency is always to do that. – Mike Gordon

65677. Surrender to the flow. – Mike Gordon

65678. Lately Fish and I have been hooking up more, which is a good thing because it’s just been a struggle for me as a bass player to play with someone who’s so creative on the drums, and lately it’s been really good, especially during sound checks. – Mike Gordon

65679. Last tour my bass rig was breaking down every other night. That was a pain. We would get on stage and Trey would count off the song, and I’d play the first note and nothing would be there. Those guys would just roll their eyes. – Mike Gordon

65680. It’s really important for the bass and the drums to somehow blend. – Mike Gordon

65681. I feel like I want to write some songs and I don’t know how to go about doing it. Usually it’s the lyrics that are a problem, and I think I am not really cut out to be a lyricist. – Mike Gordon

65682. I’m not really allowed to talk about the Dead though. I think when we are at our best, we definitely do things that the Dead or no other band could do. We explore things and take things to the extreme. – Mike Gordon

65684. I’m not really satisfied with anything I have written to date. – Mike Gordon

65685. I don’t really have a favorite bass player. I listen to a lot of bluegrass. But then again, I’m not a typical bluegrass bass player. I was really into the Grateful Dead, and I still am – I don’t listen to them too much, but for me they are a big influence. – Mike Gordon

65686. I haven’t written enough songs to be able to say that I have a system. I’ve only written a handful. – Mike Gordon

65687. I like to be sort of grounded with Fish. But, at the same time, I think probably what’s unique about us is the way other dynamics happen, where I’ll play off Trey for awhile. When we start playing a jam, I don’t usually know what’s going to happen, I don’t have a plan. – Mike Gordon

65688. I think one thing that helped the sound change, it’s a real subtle thing; it’s just one switch on my bass, it has three positions, and I usually boost the mid-range frequency, I lowered the frequency that I boost, and that goes out to the sound system, too. – Mike Gordon

65689. I want to get an handful of spare basses to use first of all if mine breaks, and second, to learn some things about aspects of basses that I like, so Paul can build those aspects into it. – Mike Gordon

65690. I’m always interested in mixing technology and music. You know, maybe I’ll have a MIDI bass pickup at some point, I don’t really think that’s the direction I would want to go. – Mike Gordon

65691. A lot of the great songwriters in history have been collaborators, with a separate lyricist. – Mike Gordon

65692. I agree with the rest of the band, that a truly synthesized sound isn’t really what I would want to go for. – Mike Gordon

65709. Ummm… well, the only thing I want to do is stuff with people who care about what they’re doing, which sounds obvious, but it’s really not. – Joseph Gordon-Levitt

65752. Given that there was that era of girl group music and it’s still very popular, but I think if you looked at the chart from that time you would see many more men on it. Because the industry, they were catering to young girls. I mean, that’s what they thought their audience was. – Lesley Gore

65822. Before we got married, I had tremendous ambition. Once we got married and I started having children, then I just thought that that was my real life. Steve was definitely more ambitious than I. – Eydie Gorme

65823. So many have been growing with us from the very beginning of our career. Others are brand new to us. – Eydie Gorme

65824. There was one year that I was on the road. – Eydie Gorme

65825. We never heard of tape. Everything was live, live, live. – Eydie Gorme

65826. We never rehearsed. – Eydie Gorme

65827. We were at the Schubert Theater for two years. And we were the first act. – Eydie Gorme

65828. We were with Frank as part of his very last tour. – Eydie Gorme

65829. When he came back from downtown, he had forgotten to bring his license, his identification, the $2 for the wedding license. So we got married two days later. – Eydie Gorme

65830. Steve has the most unbelievable range for a man that I’ve ever heard. – Eydie Gorme

65831. If truth is the first victim of war, then read on – I’ve got some great lies for you this month. – Alan Gorrie

65832. Look, I was only given a year or two to come up with tunes for this record, and when all but eight of them were thrown out for riotous behaviour, I got a bit ticked off; wouldn’t you? – Alan Gorrie

65833. I am a man of few words, but many riddles. – Frank Gorshin

65834. The finer the bait, the shorter the wait! – Frank Gorshin

65835. With money, who needs friends? – Frank Gorshin

65836. Isolation is a self-defeating dream. – Carlos Salinas de Gortari

65837. Today we know that centralization and big bureaucracies have not, as promised, been the answer for promoting better opportunities for society. – Carlos Salinas de Gortari

65838. Archeology and ecology can go hand in hand. – Carlos Salinas de Gortari

65839. A single tree in the tropical forest in the south of Mexico has more different species than some European countries. – Carlos Salinas de Gortari

65840. Globalization is a fact of economic life. – Carlos Salinas de Gortari

65841. Many a trace, and many a germ of this infantile disease, to which without a doubt, I also am a victim, has been chased away by your brochure, or will yet be eradicated by it. – Herman Gorter

65842. You should not do this, Comrade. We are only in the introductory stage yet, here in Western Europe. And in that stage it is better to encourage the fighters than the rulers. – Herman Gorter

65843. What does it mean with regard to tactics, this fact that the proletariat of Western Europe stands all alone: that it has no prospect of any help whatsoever from any other class? – Herman Gorter

65844. To judge from all Communist papers, magazines and brochures, and from all public assemblies, one might even surmise that a revolt of the poor peasants in Western Europe might break out at any moment! – Herman Gorter

65845. This is the absolute truth: and on this truth our tactics must be based. All tactics that are not based on this are false, and lead the proletariat to terrible defeat. – Herman Gorter

65846. There is an enormous difference between Russia and Western Europe. – Herman Gorter

65847. The revolution in Russia was victorious with the help of the poor peasants. This should always be borne in mind here in Western Europe and all the world over. But the workers in Western Europe stand alone: this should never be forgotten in Russia. – Herman Gorter

65848. The revolution in Russia was terrible for the proletariat in the long years of its development and it is terrible now, after the victory. But at the actual time of revolution it was easy, and this was due to the peasants. – Herman Gorter

65849. And it is practically the same in the case of the four or five million poor peasants in France, and also for Switzerland, Belgium, Holland, and two of the Scandinavian countries. Everywhere small and medium sized industry prevails. – Herman Gorter

65850. Moreover, in Russia there was an enormous amount of landed property to be divided, large estates, crown lands, government land, and the estates held by the monasteries. – Herman Gorter

65851. For the Russian masses, the proletarians, knew for certain, and already saw during the war, and in part before their very eyes, that the peasants would soon be on their side. – Herman Gorter

65852. But the question is to find and rear leaders that are really one with the masses. This can only be accomplished by the masses, the political parties and the Trade Unions, by means of the most severe struggle, also inwardly. – Herman Gorter

65853. Because in Russia you were able to triumph with the help of a large class of poor peasants, you represent things in such a way, as if we in Western Europe are also going to have that help. – Herman Gorter

65854. As farmers or owners, the poor peasants possess a piece of land. The excellent means of transport enables them often to sell their goods. At the very worst they can mostly provide their own food. – Herman Gorter

65855. Of course you know this difference as well as I do, only you failed to draw from it the conclusions for the tactics in Western Europe, at least as far as I am able to judge from your works. – Herman Gorter

65856. The poor peasant here hives under conditions quite different from those of Russia. Though often terrible, they are not as appalling as they were there. – Herman Gorter

65857. The revolution came so suddenly, and in a way so utterly different from what we expected. – Herman Gorter

65858. I think we just knew that we had a movie when Rachel walked in the room. – Ryan Gosling

65859. Freedom is such a gift. – Ryan Gosling

65860. Hollywood usually doesn’t have strong woman in films like that, and it’s stupid, so for the most part they’re usually being directed and written by men. – Ryan Gosling

65861. I did put on weight for the last half of the film, but the Ferris wheel scene was shot with a harness on me so that if I fell I wouldn’t fall all the way. – Ryan Gosling

65862. I don’t like to be entertaining. I don’t like the feeling of being entertaining. If there was a musical or a comedy that was not just for entertainment but was rooted in something I could relate to on a real level, then I think I would do it. – Ryan Gosling

65863. I don’t think you can discriminate against budgets, you know? I’m an actor, I guess, so I’m just trying to play as many characters as I can. If there’s a character I think I can play, and they’re going to let me do it, I’ll do it whether it’s $10 or $1 million or more. – Ryan Gosling

65864. I feel it’s important to show that one thing that you do doesn’t define you as a human being. It doesn’t mean there aren’t ramifications or you shouldn’t pay for that but its not who you are. – Ryan Gosling

65865. I feel like everything has happened naturally. – Ryan Gosling

65866. I have a friend that is a WWII buff, and we sat and talked a lot about stuff like the war and the reasons behind it, and you now it’s all in the uniform. Once you’re in it, it usually does all the work for you. – Ryan Gosling

65867. I just have my own taste, and I just try and stick with that. I’m just trying to play as many characters as I can for as long as I have an opportunity to. – Ryan Gosling

65868. I just sort of take it from a character perspective, and I don’t know if he was necessarily spiritual, but I do think he had hope. He was a character that was comfortable having hope in his life, and hope is faith. – Ryan Gosling

65869. I like working with actresses, and I like women a lot, not for obvious reasons, but just in that that there’s so much about what they bring to the scene that keeps it so interesting. Their instincts are so different, and they never explain them to you. – Ryan Gosling

65870. For me, I sort of felt like it was kind of a fairytale… but an interesting one. I don’t know of anybody who has had a romance quite like this, but I certainly know people who have stuck it out. – Ryan Gosling

65871. I think it’s more interesting to see people who don’t feel appropriately. I relate to that, because sometimes I don’t feel anything at all for things I’m supposed to, and other times I feel too much. It’s not always like it is in the movies. – Ryan Gosling

65872. I think we’re very complicated and we’re capable of all kinds of things, and movies don’t reflect that. – Ryan Gosling

65873. I try not to discriminate against genres. – Ryan Gosling

65874. I try to play characters who are different from myself, so I feel like this character is someone who is really different. I actually think that if I did what he did in this movie, I would get a restraining order put against me. – Ryan Gosling

65875. I’m glad I have an outlet. I don’t think I would put my aggression elsewhere, but working on the projects I have worked on, you tend to benefit personally from trying to wrap your head around the way other people look at the world. – Ryan Gosling

65876. If you do one good thing, that doesn’t define you either. Being around the kids in the juvenile center, they were engaging, they made us laugh but they were there for doing something terrible. – Ryan Gosling

65877. You know us crazy kids. We’ll do anything crazy to our hair. – Ryan Gosling

65878. I think about death a lot, like I think we all do. I don’t think of suicide as an option, but as fun. It’s an interesting idea that you can control how you go. It’s this thing that’s looming, and you can control it. – Ryan Gosling

65879. Teenagers who are never required to vacuum are living in one. – Fred G. Gosman

65880. A child who has never fantasized about having other parents is seriously lacking in imagination. – Fred G. Gosman

65881. Ignoring a child’s disrespect is the surest guarantee that it will continue. – Fred G. Gosman

65882. Taking a child to the toy store is the nearest thing to a death wish parents can have. – Fred G. Gosman

65883. The more we shelter children from every disappointment, the more devastating future disappointments will be. – Fred G. Gosman

65884. We must return optimism to our parenting. To focus on the joys, not the hassles; the love, not the disappointments; the common sense, not the complexities. – Fred G. Gosman

65885. The Iraq conflict, while not a cause of extremism, has become a cause for extremists. – Porter Goss

65886. I long for the day when advertising will become a business for a grown man. – Howard Luck Gossage

65887. If you have a lemon, make lemonade. – Howard Luck Gossage

65888. The buying of time or space is not the taking out of a hunting license on someone else’s private preserve but is the renting of a stage on which we may perform. – Howard Luck Gossage

65889. I walked to Seward School first through fourth grade. It’s just amazing to me now that we’d walk down 10th Avenue on Capitol Hill. – Stone Gossard

65890. A lot of fun stuff happens when you go out on a bike compared to when you’re in a car. You’re more in the environment. It’s enjoyable. Even when It’s raining It’s still fun. – Stone Gossard

65891. And I look forward to the time when I can become more indulgent with my songwriting. But this band is a family, and it’s a process that we have to grow with together. – Stone Gossard

65892. And I remember as a second or third grader having some autonomy to go to the store if I felt like it, walk home, take my time, kick the can. We were on our own schedule after school, so that was cool. – Stone Gossard

65893. But Eddie does not make all the decisions. Eddie can listen to reason; Eddie can be swayed or talked in or out of certain things. Eddie allows other people to lead in this band and to have certain roles that are very fundamental to the decision-making process. – Stone Gossard

65894. Call it holistic or holographic thinking, it’s been quite effective imagining the world’s problems are all right in front of you on a smaller scale with your band. You deal with those relationships, and that’s where real major change begins. – Stone Gossard

65895. Dave played an important part in our growing, but change occurs. – Stone Gossard

65896. I like rhythmic things that butt up against each other in a cool kind of way. – Stone Gossard

65897. I think if you exercise, your state of mind – my state of mind – is usually more at ease, ready for more mental challenges. Once I get the physical stuff out of the way it always seems like I have more calmness and better self-esteem. – Stone Gossard

65898. Eddie is a natural leader. Jeff and I have been very much in control of previous bands we’ve worked in. But the way Eddie grew into being the leader of this band was the most gradual, slow and respectful process that I’ve ever been involved in. – Stone Gossard

65899. I’ve seen neighborhoods that I would have never driven though because I’m riding my bike, because I’m looking for side roads, looking for maybe more hills or less hills depending if I’m exercising or not. You see a lot more, and you get the flow of a city a lot more. – Stone Gossard

65900. If it had remained always my band, my natural tendency would have been to get more complex and arrange things more and more. That wouldn’t necessarily be good for Eddie, or anyone else in the band. – Stone Gossard

65901. It would be great to take one city street and turn it into a pedestrian corridor and see what kind of effect it has on the businesses in that area – It’s the future I think. – Stone Gossard

65902. It’s a perfectly human instinct to want to be near water. – Stone Gossard

65903. It’s a very complex scenario, and certainly Dave was, and is, not the only person in Pearl Jam with personality flaws. Everybody in this band exhibits some form of neurotic behavior. And we couldn’t find a balance, a mutual respect for each other. – Stone Gossard

65904. It’s really comforting for me and Jeff, at least, that after 12 years we finally feel we’ve reached a place where we can be more honest, real and loving with each other. And we’re finally in a band that we know is good, and deserves the credit it’s getting. – Stone Gossard

65905. That’s not to say Eddie’s never done anything malicious. But he never grabbed power for power’s sake. His position was gained only because he has that energy, and that’s naturally where he ended up. – Stone Gossard

65906. There’s been a lot of role reversal going on in the band. The roles people have been playing for a long time will always be there, but everybody’s willing to try on different outfits. – Stone Gossard

65907. We may take breaks and do other things, but we feel we’ll ultimately have Pearl Jam as a family. – Stone Gossard

65908. Well, you go to Holland and everybody’s on a bike – nobody would think to have a car. – Stone Gossard

65909. You know, at 35 or at 38 or 40 you really start to see what your body could look like if you just don’t do anything all winter long. So that’s another motivating factor, our vanity. – Stone Gossard

65910. I really enjoy not getting in a car and running errands on bikes. – Stone Gossard

65911. I liked the banana-seat bikes with the high handlebars – maybe a card in the wheel could have been part of it. – Stone Gossard

65912. I haven’t done a lot of action movies, so it’s kind of fun to get to do a lot of stunt work. – Mark-Paul Gosselaar

65913. We recycle everything in my house. I’m not into any particular organizations, but I’m doing my part and that makes me feel okay. – Mark-Paul Gosselaar

65914. This is one of the hardest industries to be married. – Mark-Paul Gosselaar

65915. The first thing I did was a print ad for Century Plaza. I was five. – Mark-Paul Gosselaar

65916. The biggest challenge has been simulating a tornado with wind machines and dirt and debris. Right when you walk on the set, you feel the energy of a tornado. But the hardest thing is trying to get dialogue out in all of that. – Mark-Paul Gosselaar

65917. That may be a factor because we are the older show; we have been on the air for a while. Is it our day? Is it time to hang it up? But it seems that the show still continues, and we still enjoy being here. And that’s a very important element. – Mark-Paul Gosselaar

65918. Some people say it might be good for your career to die and then come back again. I have died many ways, car crashes, motorcycle crashes, etc. But, I am still alive. – Mark-Paul Gosselaar

65919. Road racing at the moment because it’s still so new to me. I like the fact that they are longer and teamwork is important. I guess the same is true for track, it’s just that I have used track this year as a training device to improve my sprinting in road racing. – Mark-Paul Gosselaar

65920. Lisa understands me. I’m very complex, but I have trouble opening up to people. I tend to keep things to myself. All my life, I’ve been kind of shy – opening up is always a challenge and Lisa can understand that. – Mark-Paul Gosselaar

65921. I’m always worried about my money for some reason. – Mark-Paul Gosselaar

65922. I think racing and riding are two different elements of cycling. You either want to or not depending on what you want to get out of it. – Mark-Paul Gosselaar

65923. When they do bring on new people, it’s good for the show. It’s like getting a new toy. The writers enjoy it because it’s a whole new character that they can write for, one that they aren’t used to writing for. They can try different things. – Mark-Paul Gosselaar

65924. I have always had good strength in my legs from working out with weights. I have also been riding a bike of some sort for most of my life and have good agility. – Mark-Paul Gosselaar

65925. I have a hard time watching the shows now. It is like opening up a yearbook when you were in junior high. I think everybody looks back at their photos and cringe, and I get to experience it with everybody else in the world looking at mine. – Mark-Paul Gosselaar

65926. I don’t want to be known as somebody that everybody knows about. – Mark-Paul Gosselaar

65927. I die pretty much every year. I find it amusing. – Mark-Paul Gosselaar

65928. I always have this feeling that I’m losing everything, so I’m a real saver. – Mark-Paul Gosselaar

65929. But my passion is racing cars. It’s what I like to do in my off time. – Mark-Paul Gosselaar

65930. But I plan on dedicating specific training to track this winter for the next racing season. – Mark-Paul Gosselaar

65931. After 4 years on NYPD Blue it has been nice to have the summer off and spend time with family and friends. There are a few projects I am interested in and plan to be working this fall. – Mark-Paul Gosselaar

65932. Actors are not all there when it comes to things like relationships. The thing about us is we still greatly enjoy each other. If it weren’t for her support it would be hard for me to do what I am doing now. – Mark-Paul Gosselaar

65933. I want to keep a mysterious side to me. I want to keep a mysterious side to me. – Mark-Paul Gosselaar

65934. A message prepared in the mind reaches a mind; a message prepared in a life reaches a life. – Bill Gothard

65935. You don’t go after poetry, you take what comes. Maybe the gods do it through me but I certainly do a hell of a lot of the work. – Phyllis Gotlieb

65936. Unfortunately, I’ve never been mistaken as Johnny Depp. – Gilbert Gottfried

65937. Well, I play Jews and parrots. Parrots are how I’ve branched out. – Gilbert Gottfried

65938. The pressure to being a comedian is being funny, but I’ve given that up, so there is no pressure whatsoever. – Gilbert Gottfried

65939. No, generally I think influence is used as a nice word for plagiarism. – Gilbert Gottfried

65940. If the police ever try to pick me up, Michael Jackson told me I can hide out at his house. – Gilbert Gottfried

65941. I predict one of these two teams will win the Super Bowl. – Gilbert Gottfried

65942. I can’t even find someone for a platonic relationship, much less the kind where someone wants to see me naked. – Gilbert Gottfried

65943. Well, I’m eventually gonna take the Daryl Hannah parts. – Gilbert Gottfried

65944. I’ve never been one of those who wanted to fill my calendar up 90 percent of the time. – Gilbert Gottfried

65945. I paint because it hurts not to. Pain is in the word painting. – Marta Gottfried

65946. If you think your boss is stupid, remember: you wouldn’t have a job if he was any smarter. – John Gotti

65947. I never lie because I don’t fear anyone. You only lie when you’re afraid. – John Gotti

65948. Always be nice to bankers. Always be nice to pension fund managers. Always be nice to the media. In that order. – John Gotti

65949. Don’t carry a gun. It’s nice to have them close by, but don’t carry them. You might get arrested. – John Gotti

65950. God hears a mother’s prayer. – Victoria Gotti

65951. Respect… is appreciation of the separateness of the other person, of the ways in which he or she is unique. – Annie Gottlieb

65952. I have just come from the castle, where I have seen the president of the republic, and I can tell you that he has accepted all of my proposals without making any changes. – Klement Gottwald

65953. We are the party of the Czechoslovak proletariat and our general headquarters are in Moscow. – Klement Gottwald

65954. Most of the basic truths of life sound absurd at first hearing. – Elizabeth Goudge

65955. Faith given back to us after a night of doubt is a stronger thing, and far more valuable to us than faith that has never been tested. – Elizabeth Goudge

65956. All we are asked to bear we can bear. – Elizabeth Goudge

65957. The fans know their football, you can’t kid them. – Richard Gough

65958. I played as a 17-year-old with Walter Smith, who must have been about 32. So I’ve known Walter for 21 years. – Richard Gough

65959. I can cope with a smack in the face, or at least I should be able to after the number I have had. This one was just run-of-the-mill for me. – Richard Gough

65960. I’ve got an opinion on everything, so I should go into management. – Richard Gough

65961. I look at the car park and myself and Dave Watson come in with our old cars, and these young lads come in with their new Porches. I think that society has changed, there seems to be a lack of respect nowadays. – Richard Gough

65962. My Mother is Swedish and my Father is Scottish, he played for Charlton in the 1960’s and was in the Army, he captained the British forces team. We then moved to S.A. because a lot of players did that at the time. – Richard Gough

65963. I think the hardest to replace has been Johnny Collins. He was great to play with. You could always rely on him to be available for a short pass, allowing you time to clear a ball. He would never give the ball away. – Richard Gough

65964. I was a bit worried coming back to the Premiership from America, but I have been pleased with my form, and the interest I have received has been good for my ego. I have no worries about my fitness, and I am really looking forward to the season starting now. – Richard Gough

65965. The plan was that I was going to retire and take a job with the American Federation, but Nottingham Forest offered me a contract and there was interest from West Ham and another Premiership club. – Richard Gough

65966. I have always maintained a high level of fitness, and that is why I am still able to handle the demands of playing in the Premiership. People have always commented on my fitness, and it’s something I pride myself on. – Richard Gough

65967. The USA have recently done well in the Olympics and the Youth World Cup. So I think there will be some good young players available in the future, and not too expensive which is important to the club. – Richard Gough

65968. There is a lot of things to weigh up when a transfer happens, and money is a big factor. – Richard Gough

65969. We train in the mornings, and then I go home and rest or sleep, and usually I go for a meal with Abel of a night, as we’re the two with no family here, so we tend to hang around together. – Richard Gough

65970. When I was a young player, I would look at players and think, he does this well, and try and pick up good points from them, or he conducts himself well, I’ll pick up on that. – Richard Gough

65971. For a long time, we’ve worked on detecting planets with whatever was at hand, making use of existing small telescopes or even amateur telescopes. It’s time to move on to the next stage. – Andrew Gould

65972. This will result in wells that will make a substantial improvement in the recovery factor just because they are absolutely in the proper place within the reservoir for the purposes of drainage. – Andrew Gould

65973. The national oil companies still want to acquire some expertise so they will outsource more, but not totally. – Andrew Gould

65974. Obviously the shift to gas and the need for large amounts of gas in the United States is going to be a major focus of attention on the part of producers. – Andrew Gould

65975. I think that in the near term the only threat to demand is some form of recession here in the United States. – Andrew Gould

65976. I don’t know the time frame exactly, but it’s clear they’re all going to want to start spending money again. – Andrew Gould

65977. Will the industry outsource more? I think it depends on the client base. – Andrew Gould

65979. I usually start with a repulsive character and go on from there. – Chester Gould

65981. My greatest fear is to be misunderstood. – Elliott Gould

65982. I was changing a light bulb over Groucho Marx’s bed, so I took my shoes off, got on his bed and changed the bulb. When I got off the bed he said: ‘That’s the best acting you’ve ever done.’ – Elliott Gould

65983. I find it so easy to get distracted – I try not to do more than one thing at any one time. – Elliott Gould

65984. There’s nothing more arrogant or conceited than youth, and there’s nothing other than machinery that can replace youth. – Elliott Gould

65985. For God’s sake, if you sin, take pleasure in it, and do it for the pleasure. – Gerald Gould

65986. But certainly the laser proved to be what I realized it was going to be. At that moment in my life I was too ignorant in business law to be able to do it right, and if I did it over again probably the same damn thing would happen. – Gordon Gould

65987. There was a second problem that was still not a technical problem… the project became classified. I couldn’t work on it after having gone to all that trouble. I was considered a security risk, so I could not get a clearance. – Gordon Gould

65988. The real technical problems came because people working on the project didn’t really follow my proposal at all, but set out to do other things instead of making a laser. – Gordon Gould

65989. That attitude does not exist so much today, but in those days there was a very sharp distinction between basic physics and applied physics. Columbia did not deal with applied physics. – Gordon Gould

65990. Just think, if I had understood my lawyer and if he and I had communicated properly in January 1958, this whole history would have been entirely different . – Gordon Gould

65991. I would have had my patent long, long ago, and it would have run out long, long ago. I would have made, maybe, $100.000, much less that the patent has brought me now. – Gordon Gould

65992. There is something supremely reassuring about television; the worst is always yet to come. – Jack Gould

65993. One does not allow the plumbers to decide the temperature, depth and timing of a bath. – Jack Gould

65994. I can hire one-half of the working class to kill the other half. – Jack Gould

65995. Commercials on television are similar to sex and taxes; the more talk there is about them, the less likely they are to be curbed. – Jack Gould

65996. I can hire one half of the working class to kill the other half. – Jay Gould

65997. A lecture is an occasion when you numb one end to benefit the other. – John Gould

65998. I don’t read anything anymore. I don’t have the eyesight. I read my own copy, that’s all. I think I’ve read everything that’s worth reading. – John Gould

65999. Our great American writers were all newspaper people. – John Gould

66000. If you don’t fix latent failures in your system, you’re asking for trouble. – John Gould
