72206. Hope is a feeling that life and work have meaning. You either have it or you don’t, regardless of the state of the world that surrounds you. – Vaclav Havel

72207. Hope is a state of mind, not of the world. Hope, in this deep and powerful sense, is not the same as joy that things are going well, or willingness to invest in enterprises that are obviously heading for success, but rather an ability to work for something because it is good. – Vaclav Havel

72208. Hope is definitely not the same thing as optimism. It is not the conviction that something will turn out well, but the certainty that something makes sense, regardless of how it turns out. – Vaclav Havel

72209. I really do inhabit a system in which words are capable of shaking the entire structure of government, where words can prove mightier than ten military divisions. – Vaclav Havel

72210. I think theatre should always be somewhat suspect. – Vaclav Havel

72211. If we are to change our world view, images have to change. The artist now has a very important job to do. He’s not a little peripheral figure entertaining rich people, he’s really needed. – Vaclav Havel

72213. Modern man must descend the spiral of his own absurdity to the lowest point; only then can he look beyond it. It is obviously impossible to get around it, jump over it, or simply avoid it. – Vaclav Havel

72214. Anyone who takes himself too seriously always runs the risk of looking ridiculous; anyone who can consistently laugh at himself does not. – Vaclav Havel

72215. Hope is not the conviction that something will turn out well but the certainty that something makes sense, regardless of how it turns out. – Vaclav Havel

72220. The TV business is soul crushing, talent destroying and human being destroying. – Olivia De Havilland

72222. The one thing that you simply have to remember all the time that you are there, is that Hollywood is an oriental city. As long as you do that you might survive. If you try to equate it with anything else you’ll perish. – Olivia De Havilland

72229. It is one of the ironies of the ministry that the very man who works in God’s name is often hardest put to find time for God. The parents of Jesus lost Him at church, and they were not the last ones to lose Him there. – Vance Havner

72233. Many people are in a rut and a rut is nothing but a grave – with both ends kicked out. – Vance Havner

72269. The financial capital is being concentrated by corporations, institutional investors, and even our pension funds, and being reinvested in companies that repeat this process because it provides the highest return on that financial capital. – Paul Hawken

72281. Businesses who are members of Businesses for Social Responsibility or the Social Venture Network are internalizing costs on a voluntary basis and therefore raising their costs of doing business, but their competitors are not required to. – Paul Hawken

72306. For the last 20 years of my life, I’ve had the mantra to do amazing parts with amazing people in amazing projects, so I’m attracted to good story, writing and character and good people. That’s what I’m always searching for and I don’t think that’s ever going to change. – John Hawkes

72307. I do all kinds of roles – nerd, psycho, nerd, psycho, nerd, psycho – and occasionally someone kind of normal. It’s weird, when I lived in Austin I was always cast as pretty normal people. But when I moved to Los Angeles I was immediately branded a psycho. – John Hawkes

72308. I don’t have any training as an actor, but I guess I’m an intense pretender. When you read something over and over, it gets into you a little bit. You can’t help but begin to feel it, even if you’re a healthy person as I think I am. – John Hawkes

72310. You never really forget who you are. If you did, you’d need to seek some professional help. – John Hawkes

72317. It is not clear that intelligence has any long-term survival value. – Stephen Hawking

72318. It is no good getting furious if you get stuck. What I do is keep thinking about the problem but work on something else. Sometimes it is years before I see the way forward. In the case of information loss and black holes, it was 29 years. – Stephen Hawking

72319. The usual approach of science of constructing a mathematical model cannot answer the questions of why there should be a universe for the model to describe. Why does the universe go to all the bother of existing? – Stephen Hawking

72335. Loads of computer graphics equals a terrible video in my book. – Dan Hawkins

72336. We’re real people and we’re a band that’s been playing on the scene for a long time. We’ve made a lot of friends, and one enemy we’ve always had was the NME. They’ve always basically slated us and they’ve basically never ever written about the music. – Dan Hawkins

72337. You have to keep going. The main attention is for us to stay alive and stay a band. You only really become very successful when you stick together. Just keep going and reaching bigger and better. – Dan Hawkins

72340. When I need to nail that riff to the cross, Marshall will always provide the hammer! – Dan Hawkins

72342. We’ve got a long career ahead of us and it’s going to be great. Trust me. – Dan Hawkins

72343. I think we raised about 20,000 pounds. There was a live performance thing so we thought we’d donate the equipment for an online charity in Britain. I hated to part with my guitar, but it was for such a great cause. – Dan Hawkins

72344. After school I moved to London to get involved in music. I took the whole thing very seriously. – Dan Hawkins

72346. There’s a lot of people out there who have seen us once somewhere in a pub or heard our songs late night on radio. We’d done four years of it before we’d even released a single. It’s put us in good stead. – Dan Hawkins

72353. My favorite is still the one that I started off with, which is a Les Paul Standard. I’ve played that at every gig I’ve ever had. And that’s my starting point in the studio. – Dan Hawkins

72354. The bigger we get, I think the more it’s changing things, which is great, but we didn’t set out to do that. We just wanted to be as big as we possibly could be. – Dan Hawkins

72361. Whatever the difference between brilliant and average brains, we are all creative. And through practice and study we can enhance our skills and talents. – Jeff Hawkins

72362. You can’t imagine how much detail we know about brains. There were 28,000 people who went to the neuroscience conference this year, and every one of them is doing research in brains. A lot of data. But there’s no theory. There’s a little, wimpy box on top there. – Jeff Hawkins

72363. Like all citizens, Ms. McNeill has the right to be free from unlawful employment practices such as sex discrimination and retaliation. – John Hawkins

72375. Wherever there are rock ‘n’ rollers, we’ll play. That’s what we’ve been doing for more than 30 years – rock ‘n’ roll. It’s made me everything from an honorary mayor to honorary member of a motorcycle gang. – Ronnie Hawkins

72376. ‘The bigtime for you is just around the corner.’ They told me that first in 1952 – boy, it’s been a long corner. If I don’t hit the bigtime in the next 25 or 30 years, I’m gonna pack in the music business and become a full-time gigolo. – Ronnie Hawkins

72377. I don’t know who’s left to hear us. But if there are people who want the real thing, we’ve got it. My band rocks, and I plan to keep doing it ’till nobody shows up to see it anymore. – Ronnie Hawkins

72378. I am a cross between Carl Perkins and Led Zeppelin. – Ronnie Hawkins

72380. I spent ninety percent of my money on wine, women and song and just wasted the other ten percent. – Ronnie Hawkins
