73872. I put the costume on and said ‘It’s not very comfortable, but it looks amazing,’ so it’s all good. – Chris Hemsworth

73873. You get the part, sign the contract and start to realize millions of people follow this guy and know more about your character than you do. – Chris Hemsworth

73874. Well, I’ll keep on auditioning and one day maybe I’ll go to LA and try out for films there. – Chris Hemsworth

73875. Not often do you approach a character where people know more about him than you do. – Chris Hemsworth

73876. I have sporadic OCD cleaning moments around the house. But then I get lazy and I’m cured. It’s a very inconsistent personality trait. – Chris Hemsworth

73877. I have seen ‘Thor’, yeah. It’s fantastic. Being that close to something, it’s often pretty hard to watch yourself, but the film in so many ways is so impressive that I was swept along with it like an audience member, and that’s a pretty good sign. – Chris Hemsworth

73878. I entered the work force cleaning breast pumps at a pharmacy! It was a part-time gig while I was at school… no interview required. – Chris Hemsworth

73879. At home in Victoria, we have three dogs, Tosh and Lucy, they’re half Blue Heelers, and then there’s Torrin a little Maltese terrier. She gets more attention in the house than anyone else! Yes, I miss them a lot. – Chris Hemsworth

73880. I actually find it harder to act in the scenes where there’s not much happening, say having a milkshake in the diner. That is far harder to do than straight scenes where there’s a drama going on and you have something to do. – Chris Hemsworth

73881. Real folk music long ago went to Nashville and left no known survivors. – Donal Henahan

73882. The human brain can soften as a result of incessant listening to music with an intent to commit prose. – Donal Henahan

73883. It will never be mistaken for a high school gymnasium or a meeting room in a Midwestern motel. – Donal Henahan

73884. It might be argued that genuine spontaneity is not really possible or desirable so long as printed scores of great works exist. All modern musicians are, for better or worse, prisoners of Gutenberg. – Donal Henahan

73885. Next to the writer of real estate advertisements, the autobiographer is the most suspect of prose artists. – Donal Henahan

73886. The more disastrous the mishaps the simpler the reviewing task. – Donal Henahan

73887. Walt put everything he knew about communication with images into the park, so it was very familiar. – John Hench

73888. Of course, it gave the studio an enormous power, because I don’t know any other place who had that skill with images to communicate with. And the need of these kinds of images are even greater now than they ever were because we are losing our life symbols. – John Hench

73889. The colors I choose there was to paint the first hotel, the Disneyland Hotel. Because of the cloudy sky we had in Paris, it had to be a particular kind of color who will fight those grey days. And also something you can see when you’re driving up ‘There it is! We’re arriving!’ – John Hench

73890. The park achieved a kind of reality. Like these virtual reality games the children are playing with. I told them we were doing this 40 years ago! Disneyland is virtual reality. – John Hench

73891. The show is being changed right now, by the way. Jeff Burke is doing it for the Magic Kingdom. And I think it will be better, with new birds, master of ceremonies, etc. – John Hench

73892. Then, you were supposed to discover the city, where they were. But because somebody like skeletons. And that they discovered that they were at a cheap price, we used too many skeletons all over the place, and the public got the wrong message. – John Hench

73893. There were no jewelry hidden. Walt wanted this atmosphere: They were supposed to live here, they’ve been outside somewhere, but they could come back at any minute and catch us. – John Hench

73894. Walt had a marvelous intuition. And because he understood people very well, liked them and had great respect for people, there was nothing cynical about Walt. – John Hench

73895. In live action movies, you just hope that everything works. Because the actor may had a bad morning and doesn’t play good, or accidents happen continuously. Many things contradict what you are trying to say. But in cartoons, nothing contradict what you want to say. – John Hench

73896. Walt understood all of those things, and even common things about people. For instance: Usually you get your idea of what kind of day it is by looking at the horizon, because the horizon is your eye level. So what Walt did is to eliminate the horizon. – John Hench

73897. Walt’s idea was that – as soon as the people who were dining got through their main course. They were supposed to all be seated, served at the same time, when they got into the dessert. – John Hench

73898. When you go to the park, there is no horizon – just Disneyland. – John Hench

73899. We finally found out the technique of separating and getting information about where every train would be at any moment. Of course, I went over budget many times, because – as you go along – some things improved, and you get better ideas. – John Hench

73900. Well, it was never supposed to be like that. Walt died before we had finished. The original idea of Walt’s was that you came down there, into the caves, and there were no pirates. But they had been there just seconds before! There was a hot meal on the table, steaming. – John Hench

73901. What happen to the pirates we are supposed to see? Then we go down the chutes, and it’s where the pirates were. But they’re all gone. There is nothing but skeletons down here! – John Hench

73902. This music that was supposed to only come from tapes like in any restaurant. Something would happened. One bird will start to do a little jazz thing, and another bird will start to answer. – John Hench

73903. I did what we call dry for wet effects, some of the miniatures work and two animation sequences. – John Hench

73904. We’ve achieved this feeling, for instance, with the colors. The colors in the park are harmonious with each other, not like in big cities where they don’t. – John Hench

73905. Because, you know, it’s never a hard work when you enjoy yourself. Look, I’ve been here since 57 years, and I don’t have to explain why I’ve stayed so long. I always enjoyed it. – John Hench

73906. Big cities are chaotic. And chaos for humans – who have experience from their ancestors – is the last step before conflict. So, in the park, every kind of visual contradiction has been eliminated. – John Hench

73907. But Walt and him shared the same kind of optimism. Walt believed in himself, and he was optimistic about what he wanted to do. He just knew it will be okay, and Dali was the same way. They had a great deal in common that way. – John Hench

73908. Color is a very critical thing. I’ve found that architects don’t like colors. Engineers too. And so somebody has to stand in. Because this is the finish of it. It is the emotional part of a structure. I had great satisfaction in doing that. – John Hench

73909. Even in China. Children there, next to the Great Wall, who had never seen Mickey Mouse responded. So the studio did have that skill to communicate with images. – John Hench

73910. Mickey is one of the prime examples: Mickey has never been suspected of being an American export. It was deja vu. They gave him a local name and he’s been accepted everywhere he goes. – John Hench

73911. I always admired Walt’s optimism. He seemed to know the direction he was going to. When I was at the studio, I remember he kept driving all of us back down to a more fundamental level all the time. – John Hench

73912. Nobody now is going from department to another department. Only Walt did that. I was very fond of him, really. – John Hench

73913. I don’t think that was too successful. Because I always thought that the two of them should have been more separate. Also I had planned the monorail station to be in the center. So that one day you would have go to World Showcase and then the other day to Future World. – John Hench

73914. I have wanted to be a fine artist painter, and I reached the point in art schools were I’d like to understand more about images and how images communicate information to people. And I was not getting very far in that from my professors. – John Hench

73915. I suppose that every time there is difficulty. I remember about Space Mountain: It took us ten years before we found the technology that would allow such a ride. And during these ten years, I had a model that I kept, waiting for the technology we needed. – John Hench

73916. I suppose that I was a kind of consultant for taste. Is it good taste? Or bad taste? I had an attention to detail, to what would tell best the story. Because many people get excited about the work and drift off from the story. – John Hench

73917. I thought that it would be easier to learn that if I worked in motion pictures. So I went to work with one motion picture producer who was developing a color system. This didn’t do to me much good. All I did was pick filters for the camera. – John Hench

73918. It was supposed to be in the second street project for Main Street. But who knows? Maybe it will be built one of these days. We never throw away any idea. – John Hench

73919. For instance, some early ideas for Florida were done only recently. The idea of a little village was there from the beginning and now we have this “Celebration” village. Same thing for the Disney Institute. Walt talked about this idea in the very first. – John Hench

73920. We don’t have too much ritual in our life anymore. And these life symbols which people rely on to keep their feeling of well being, that life is not too bad after all are required more and more. – John Hench

73921. Therefore, let us not despair, but instead, survey the position, consider carefully the action we must take, and then address ourselves to our common task in a mood of sober resolution and quiet confidence, without haste and without pause. – Arthur Henderson

73922. The drive toward economic nationalism is only part of the general revival of nationalism. – Arthur Henderson

73923. The first condition of success for the League of Nations is, therefore, a firm understanding between the British Empire and the United States of America and France and Italy that there will be no competitive building up of fleets or armies between them. – Arthur Henderson

73924. The forces that are driving mankind toward unity and peace are deep-seated and powerful. They are material and natural, as well as moral and intellectual. – Arthur Henderson

73925. The more the history of the World War and what led up to it is studied, the more clearly those tragic years become revealed as a vast collapse of civilization. – Arthur Henderson

73926. The nations must be organized internationally and induced to enter into partnership, subordinating in some measure national sovereignty to worldwide institutions and obligations. – Arthur Henderson

73927. The question is, what are we to do in order to consolidate peace on a universal and durable foundation, and what are the essential elements of such a peace? – Arthur Henderson

73928. The Disarmament Conference has become the focal point of a great struggle between anarchy and world order… between those who think in terms of inevitable armed conflict and those who seek to build a universal and durable peace. – Arthur Henderson

73929. The world before 1914 was already a world in which the welfare of each individual nation was inextricably bound up with the prosperity of the whole community of nations. – Arthur Henderson

73930. The years of the economic depression have been years of political reaction, and that is why the economic crisis has generated a world peace crisis. – Arthur Henderson

73931. Those nations have a very great responsibility at this juncture of the world’s affairs, for by throwing their joint weight into the scales of history on the right side, they may tip the balance decisively in favour of peace. – Arthur Henderson

73932. Thus, the struggle for peace includes the struggle for freedom and justice for the masses of all countries. – Arthur Henderson

73933. To solve the problem of organizing world peace we must establish world law and order. – Arthur Henderson

73934. We had four years of world war which the peoples endured only because they were told that their sufferings would free humanity forever from the scourge of war. – Arthur Henderson

73935. Whatever we do or fail to do will influence the course of history. – Arthur Henderson

73936. The vast upheaval of the World War set in motion forces that will either destroy civilization or raise mankind to undreamed of heights of human welfare and prosperity. – Arthur Henderson

73937. In almost every country there are elements of opinion which would welcome such a conclusion because they wish to return to the politics of the balance of power, unrestricted and unregulated armaments, international anarchy, and preparation for war. – Arthur Henderson

73938. Another essential to a universal and durable peace is social justice. – Arthur Henderson

73939. As a first step there must be an offer to achieve equality of rights in disarmament by abolishing the weapons forbidden to the Central Powers by the Peace Treaties. – Arthur Henderson

73940. But to cut off relations with an aggressor may often invite retaliation by armed action, and this would, in its turn, make necessary some form of collective self-defence by the loyal members of the League. – Arthur Henderson

73941. Four years of world war, at a cost in human suffering which our minds are mercifully too limited to imagine, led to the very clear realization that international anarchy must be abandoned if civilization was to survive. – Arthur Henderson

73942. He would see civilization in danger of perishing under the oppression of a gigantic paradox: he would see multitudes of people starving in the midst of plenty, and nations preparing for war although pledged to peace. – Arthur Henderson

73943. This is our world, and we must make the best of it. – Arthur Henderson

73944. One of the first essentials is a policy of unreserved political cooperation with all the nations of the world. – Arthur Henderson

73945. I do not believe that the values which the Western democracies consider essential to civilization can survive in a world rent by the international anarchy of nationalism and the economic anarchy of competitive enterprise. – Arthur Henderson

73946. In our modern world of interdependent nations, hardly any state can wage war successfully without raising loans and buying war materials of every kind in the markets of other nations. – Arthur Henderson

73947. In short, it may be said that on paper the obligations to settle international disputes peacefully are now so comprehensive and far-reaching that it is almost impossible for a state to resort to war without violating one or more solemn treaty obligations. – Arthur Henderson

73948. In some states militant nationalism has gone to the lengths of dictatorship, the cult of the absolute or totalitarian state and the glorification of war. – Arthur Henderson

73949. It has become impossible to give up the enterprise of disarmament without abandoning the whole great adventure of building up a collective peace system. – Arthur Henderson

73950. It is because I believe that it is in the power of such nations to lead the world back into the paths of peace that I propose to devote myself to explaining what, in my opinion, can and should be done to banish the fear of war that hangs so heavily over the world. – Arthur Henderson

73951. Moreover, war has become a thing potentially so terrible and destructive that it should have been the common aim of statesmen to put an end to it forever. – Arthur Henderson

73952. On the contrary, the characteristic element of the present situation is that economic questions have finally and irrevocably invaded the domain of public life and politics. – Arthur Henderson

73953. Any corporate policy and plan which is typical of the industry is doomed to mediocrity. Where this is not so, it should be possible to demonstrate that all other competitors are at a distinct disadvantage. – Bruce Henderson

73954. Your most dangerous competitors are those that are most like you. – Bruce Henderson

73955. The essential element of successful strategy is that it derives its success from the differences between competitors with a consequent difference in their behavior. – Bruce Henderson

73956. The objective is to enlarge the scope of your advantage which can only happen at someone else’s expense. – Bruce Henderson

73957. I started in live television and I’ve done a lot of live TV and that’s really the thing that I love best. I love flying by the seat of my pants. – Florence Henderson

73958. I still get so much fan mail addressed to Carol Brady, and I think a lot of it’s through the Net. And I always answer it, if it’s legible. – Florence Henderson

73959. I’m a ’70s mom, and my daughter is a ’90s mom. I know a lot of women my age who are real computer freaks. – Florence Henderson

73960. My life has never been easy. It’s like all the major events of my life have always been difficult. – Florence Henderson

73961. When I first went to New York I was right out of high school, I was 17 years old, and I had never seen a building over two stories high. – Florence Henderson

73962. Yet the home courses are where you spend dozens to hundreds of hours a year. You must choose them well. – Joe Henderson

73963. The Chip also reduces the damage done by bandits. They still steal drinks and cheers along the course, but no longer scramble the paying runners’ results. No entry fee, no Chip, no time or place. – Joe Henderson

73964. The hours, minutes and seconds stand as visible reminders that your effort put them all there. Preserve until your next run, when the watch lets you see how Impermanent your efforts are. – Joe Henderson

73965. The natural urge when running a distance is to push harder and finish sooner – to race against time. Every second behind a deadline is a little defeat. – Joe Henderson

73966. The records fell easily at first. Dozens of seconds peeled away with every running of a course, and I could hardly wait for the next chance to improve. – Joe Henderson

73967. The results would have stayed on the watch face until the batteries died. But trying to make time stand still this way would have been a mistake. It is just as important to erase times eventually as to save them at first. – Joe Henderson

73968. They trained mostly by time periods, checking their pace for known distance only on special occasions. – Joe Henderson

73969. Time means a great deal to every runner. It means everything to me, because most days miles don’t count; only minutes do. – Joe Henderson

73970. Where did you run today? Now there’s a question you don’t often hear. – Joe Henderson

73971. These thieves defend themselves by saying, ‘I was there all the time, and the officials missed me.’ Favorite excuses for missing surveillance checkpoints: jacket covered the number took off the shirt with the number hidden in a crowd. – Joe Henderson

73972. That’s how most of us would feel. But the sport has a few deviants without consciences. – Joe Henderson

73973. When running to fill a time quota, however, the reverse happens. You can’t make that time pass any faster by rushing, so you settle into a pace that feels right to you at the moment. Each minute above a quota is a little victory. – Joe Henderson

73974. I feared the verdict of the watch, where I either lost the race against time that day or would lose it soon by making the record even harder to break. The time trap had snapped shut. – Joe Henderson

73975. A course never quite looks the same way twice. The combinations of weather, season, light, feelings and thoughts that you find there are ever-changing. – Joe Henderson

73976. A lesser but still fundamental rule of racing is that you properly enter the event. Anyone who doesn’t but still insists on running interferes with the paying customers. – Joe Henderson

73977. Buzz has reduced my range. Running safely with him means using fewer and shorter routes, with multiple laps per day or multiple returns there per week. Neither of us minds repeating ourselves. This is what runners do. – Joe Henderson

73978. That time is important. It gives a comforting illusion of permanence not found in running by the mile. – Joe Henderson

73979. This act demonstrates graphically a turning away the past and moving ahead. You now get to refresh your time in a friendly way by running with the watch instead of against it or away from it. – Joe Henderson

73980. I’ve lived nearby since 1981 and probably have averaged one run a week there. That’s more than 1000 repetitions, and I have yet to tire of this course. – Joe Henderson

73981. In fact, the bandits steal the drinks and assistance provided along the course. Worse, they cross the finish line and mess up the scoring of legitimate runners. – Joe Henderson

73982. Our favorite: a former garbage dump converted into a riverside park. I first ran there more than 30 years ago when a marathon passed through this park that later became home to Pre’s Trail. – Joe Henderson

73983. Ours is a life of constant reruns. We’re always circling back to where we’d we started, then starting all over again. Even if we don’t run extra laps that day, we surely will come back for more of the same another day soon. – Joe Henderson

73984. Speed eventually neared its peak. The records forced me to work ever harder to drop a less and less time. These time trials came to feel like races, which are fun to run sporadically but not daily. – Joe Henderson

73985. His name, Buzz, fits. He can buzz along at 40 miles an hour when his genetic memory moves him. – Joe Henderson

73986. It is a little weird now, going over to Heath’s place. It’s like, ‘Hi Heath, hi Nomes.’ Very strange! – Martin Henderson

73987. Most horror films fail to scare me. I think “The Ring” plays more as a psychological thriller. It’s smarter, there’s more character development and some of the themes explored go a little deeper. – Martin Henderson

73988. I always thought I’d go to university and then get a real job, you know. Now I want to do stuff that really makes me happy. Although I’m still trying to work out what that is. But for me there are always constants. – Martin Henderson

73989. It’s a great challenge to come from little New Zealand and beat the odds in Hollywood. – Martin Henderson

73990. The accent got lost somewhere along the way. I’m a little embarrassed about it. When I arrived in LA I assumed I’d be able to put on the American accent. It proved difficult so I had six months working with a dialect coach and it’s become a habit. – Martin Henderson

73991. Heath, I believed in him when I first met him, and helped and supported him. He went on to obvious success in the States and then I had him support me. It can be a lonely, horrible, hard place. It’s great just to have someone to call to say ‘I know, man, I was there’ – Martin Henderson

73992. When fairy tales are written in the west, they’re known as folklore. In the east, fairy tales are called religions. – Paul Henderson

73993. I don’t want to be one of those great players who never made it to the Series. – Rickey Henderson

73994. I like playing for Oakland, they have a very colorful uniform. – Rickey Henderson

73995. If my uniform doesn’t get dirty, I haven’t done anything in the baseball game. – Rickey Henderson

73996. Lou Brock was a great base stealer but today I am the greatest. – Rickey Henderson

73997. You have to keep running. I always believed I was going to be safe. – Rickey Henderson

73998. I also work with the regular orchestras in Munich, Germany and other similar orchestras. – Skitch Henderson

73999. I’ve watched the demise of the Hollywood orchestra, the house orchestras of the big studios. – Skitch Henderson

74000. Although we are being presented in Carnegie Hall, we have to furnish a budget for our guest stars, and for the music writing – which is a huge budget in any orchestra that plays popular music. – Skitch Henderson
