67802. Everyone says how Calvin and Hobbes is about a real kid, to me there’s nothing real about it; it’s an adult using a kid’s body as a mouthpiece. – Bill Griffith

67803. Frivolity is a stern taskmaster. – Bill Griffith

67804. If something is going on in my life, it winds up getting into my strip. – Bill Griffith

67814. What I do is draw but if you make an animated feature obviously it takes a whole team of people, and Zippy is my work. I felt that turning it over to a team of people would be wrong. – Bill Griffith

67815. I am fond of depicting the lives of young folks for one thing, and if you have parts for girls or young men, you must absolutely have young people to fill them – that is generally acknowledged now. – D. W. Griffith

67816. I pick out young people and teach them in less time than it would take me to alter the methods of people from the boards, and I get actors who look the parts they have to fill. – D. W. Griffith

67817. It takes two years on the stage for an actor or an actress to learn how to speak correctly and to manage his voice properly, and it takes about ten years to master the subtle art of being able to hold one’s audience. – D. W. Griffith

67818. Now supposing I had the part of a young woman to give out, one that wanted some excellent acting. If I were to go to the stage for my actress I would have to take a matured woman, one who would act splendidly, but who would look too old for the requirements. – D. W. Griffith

67819. Well, I certainly did not think that I could do worse. – D. W. Griffith

67821. Angelina Jolie may get Antonio Banderas in bed for eight hours on a movie set, but I get him in bed everyday. – Melanie Griffith

67828. You know who helped me a lot? Jane Fonda. She said, Look at how many times I’ve been up and I’ve been down. So don’t worry about anything. – Melanie Griffith

67829. Children enhance you. – Melanie Griffith

67830. Being a good songwriter means paying attention and sticking your hand out the window to catch the song on the way to someone else’s house! – Nanci Griffith

67831. Even though my songs may sound very personal, to me most of them are fiction. It is a great way for me to be able to live a fantasy life as a writer because I get to be someone else, someplace else for three and a half minutes, just like the listener. – Nanci Griffith

67832. I decided it was time to pay tribute to my own songs, to give them the opportunity to mature and be adult. – Nanci Griffith

67836. Journalism is in fact history on the run. – Thomas Griffith

67837. Journalism constructs momentarily arrested equilibriums and gives disorder an implied order. That is already two steps from reality. – Thomas Griffith

67841. Journalism as theater is what TV news is. – Thomas Griffith

67842. It is no longer a question of a Christian going about to convert others to the faith, but of each one being ready to listen to the other and so to grow together in mutual understanding. – Bede Griffiths

67843. God had brought me to my knees and made me acknowledge my own nothingness, and out of that knowledge I had been reborn. I was no longer the centre of my life and therefore I could see God in everything. – Bede Griffiths

67845. The inspiration came suddenly again to surrender to the Mother. It was quite unexpected: And so somehow I made a surrender to the Mother. Then I had an experience of overwhelming love. Waves of love sort of flowed into me. – Bede Griffiths

67846. Obedience is detachment from the self. This is the most radical detachment of all. But what is the self? The self is the principle of reason and responsibility in us. It is the root of freedom, it is what makes us men. – Bede Griffiths

67847. I was being called to surrender the very citadel of my self. I was completely in the dark. I did not really know what repentance was or what I was required to repent of. It was indeed the turning point of my life. – Bede Griffiths

67848. I think the Mother is gradually revealing itself to me and taking over. But it is not the Mother alone. It is the Mother and the Father, the male and the female, sort of gradually having their marriage. – Bede Griffiths

67849. I am rediscovering the whole sexual dimension of life at the age of 86, really. And that also means discovering the feminine. So the whole of this dimension, which I had been seeking for a very long time, is now sort of opening itself up to me. – Bede Griffiths

67850. I suddenly saw that all the time it was not I who had been seeking God, but God who had been seeking me. I had made myself the centre of my own existence and had my back turned to God. – Bede Griffiths

67851. Give us a chance to show you that those so-called protective laws to aid women – however well intentioned originally – have become in fact restraints, which keep wife, abandoned wife, and widow alike from supporting her family. – Martha Griffiths

67852. All I want to be is human and American and have all the same rights and I will shut up. – Martha Griffiths

67853. Before I leave this Earth, I would like to know they have given women the same benefits and promotions as men. – Martha Griffiths

67854. I think a big part of our attraction to sport movies are the stories contained within the sports. – Rachel Griffiths

67869. I’m so motivated to collaborate with people and help them realize the kind of collective vision. – Rachel Griffiths

67870. I’m quite intuitive about what I pick. Often it’s to do with what I’ve just done and how I’m feeling. – Rachel Griffiths

67872. I’m developing some screenplays at the moment with my Australian producer. – Rachel Griffiths

67873. I think family movies have gotten so rich in this country. – Rachel Griffiths

67874. We grew up as kids watching those movies and we were exposed to themes of civil rights, unfairness, bigotry and fathers struggling against the kind of mob of the town, so you remember how you felt as a kid being taken seriously, that you are part of the human drama. – Rachel Griffiths

67878. While this debate today is a belated effort to inform the American people, it is nevertheless an empty gesture. It is time to admit our mistake in Iraq and begin to bring our troops home with honor. – Raul Grijalva

67879. We in this Congress have a choice. The American people have a right to exercise a choice on this issue, as to whether our men and women will continue to fight and die in a war based on deception and fantasy, or to start bringing the troops home. – Raul Grijalva

67880. We cannot shun our values as an immigrant nation. This is a wrong path. And while possibly it is a short-term political victory based on division and based on creating a wedge issue that splits people in this country, it is a long-term defeat for this Nation. – Raul Grijalva

67881. This war of choice in Iraq is undermining the very fabric of American society. – Raul Grijalva

67884. If this Nation really wants to create an effective border security policy, we need to have a debate that includes a discussion about actual solutions to our problems, which means taking all of the political grandstanding and baiting out of the equation. – Raul Grijalva

67885. How many times will this Congress waste time on an issue that a majority of Americans do not want? – Raul Grijalva

67886. Bringing the troops home is necessary not just for the future of Iraq, but also for the people of the United States. We must stop the hemorrhaging of tax dollars that could go to meet our Nation’s vital domestic needs. – Raul Grijalva

67887. The American people have decided that it was a mistake to choose to go to war in Iraq. – Raul Grijalva

67888. No one in this body wants to see terrorism and the rule of force prevail in Iraq. Some on the other side say otherwise, but I believe they know better. – Raul Grijalva

67896. To test a modest man’s modesty do not investigate if he ignores applause, find out if he abides criticism. – Franz Grillparzer

67897. Whoever places his trust into a system will soon be without a home. While you are building your third story, the two lower ones have already been dismantled. – Franz Grillparzer

67898. You even called me stupid in your verse, and I’m almost agreeing, for where stupidity is involved, you are quite an expert, friend. – Franz Grillparzer

67921. We had had several mine disasters where workers, some of the workers were rescued. It was, you know, who was lucky and who weren’t. Some would find the air pockets But, in this one, bam, it was just, everybody was gone and it greatly depressed the state. – Richard Grimes

67922. The business manager was doing fine back in his office while they were out on the line, hungry. And, so they started to see a lot of that and there was, that maybe the leadership had its own cause. More so than the miners, you know, it was like a power struggle. – Richard Grimes

67923. It took about six years to get the Black Lung stuff. It didn’t come just instantly. Sometimes, I see lobby groups, today, upset because they work the whole session and nothing happens. – Richard Grimes

67924. It’s like there was the Union, and then there’s the Union Management. In some of the strikes that I covered when I saw the strike starting to break, wasn’t necessarily when Management was giving in, more so than when the strikers were at odds with the Union Management. – Richard Grimes

67925. The denial of our duty to act in this case is a denial of our right to act; and if we have no right to act, then may we well be termed the white slaves of the North, for like our brethren in bonds, we must seal our lips in silence and despair. – Angelina Grimke

67930. We Abolition Women are turning the world upside down. – Angelina Grimke

67931. The doctrine of blind obedience and unqualified submission to any human power, whether civil or ecclesiastical, is the doctrine of despotism, and ought to have no place among Republicans and Christians. – Angelina Grimke

67944. People recognize me, call me Ron, and ask me questions. It’s really cool and weird as well. – Rupert Grint

67951. Well, before I knew there was going to be a film. I was the biggest Harry Potter fan. I read all the books. – Rupert Grint
