74323. People often forget this – a vinyl album could only contain a maximum of 20 minutes per side! – Ken Hensley

74329. I have never learned to read or write music so I am not a virtuoso musician like the others you mentioned. I am completely unable to play like them because I never learned classical music, I just developed my own crazy style! – Ken Hensley

74330. I didn’t know that you were supposed to tune the guitar to an open chord, and I learned to play slide with a normal tuning. I think it’s a little more melodic that way and doesn’t sound so bluesy. Of course, if I could play like David Lindley or Ry Cooder, I’d be a happy man! – Ken Hensley

74331. I am, first of all, a Christian and, secondly, a person with very very serious personal opinion, so I’m motivated by many many things and, certainly, not by the need or desire to satisfy other people’s ideas of who I am. – Ken Hensley

74336. The most important thing about my profession is finding the truth, finding the reality of these shows. – Shuler Hensley

74337. I’m really an actor first. I’d love to do more straight plays. – Shuler Hensley

74338. I love film and TV, the medium of them, just because it’s such a smaller screen. It’s much more precise. Ideally, I’d like to do maybe a film a year of some sort and use that to work more in the theatre because theatre really is my first love. – Shuler Hensley

74339. I knew from a young age that I could sing and it was impressed upon me that if I got a classically trained education in voice, it would serve as a foundation for whatever I chose to do. – Shuler Hensley

74340. I’m a character actor at heart. – Shuler Hensley

74341. When I was young, my ambition was to be one of the people who made a difference in this world. My hope is to leave the world a little better for having been there. – Jim Henson

74342. My hope still is to leave the world a bit better than when I got here. – Jim Henson

74343. You’re assisting the audience to understand; you’re giving them a bridge or an access. And if you don’t give them that, if you keep it more abstract, it’s almost more pure. It’s a cooler thing. – Jim Henson

74344. No, there’s not much competition between puppeteers in general because everybody’s working their own style. – Jim Henson

74345. Somebody like a Piggy or a Kermit, there needs to be several versions and so there will be several of them. – Jim Henson

74346. The most sophisticated people I know – inside they are all children. – Jim Henson

74347. There was a little afternoon show that was called Afternoon. Back in those days in television, most local stations had a midday show for housewives that had a series of things. It was like a variety show for midday. – Jim Henson

74348. We thought it would be fun to try to design a show that would work well internationally and so that’ s what we’re intending to do with Fraggle Rock, and we are indeed now selling it around the world. – Jim Henson

74349. Yeah, we pretty much had a form and a shape by that time – a style – and I think one of the advantages of not having any relationship to any other puppeteer was that it gave me a reason to put those together myself for the needs of television. – Jim Henson

74350. When I was a kid, I never saw a puppet show. I never played with puppets or had any interest in them. – Jim Henson

74351. When The Muppet Show ended, we all sat around and said, what kind of television show would we like to do. We felt the need these days are for some quality children’s programming. – Jim Henson

74352. Yeah, I did some small parts in high school and the first year of college and then fairly soon thereafter I settled into the backstage scenery, and then at the University of Maryland I was doing posters for their productions. – Jim Henson

74353. Yeah, I think we did the term Muppets before we got the show Sam and Friends – a few months after I started working. – Jim Henson

74354. Yeah, well when I first started working, it was $5 a show; it was probably a little higher by the time I got to my own show, but I remember that they put me under contract at $100 a week, which to me was really an astronomical price. – Jim Henson

74355. Life’s like a movie, write your own ending. Keep believing, keep pretending. – Jim Henson

74356. Well, Detroit Institute is kind of a key – probably the largest permanent collection of puppets in the US. – Jim Henson

74357. At the University of Maryland, my first year I started off planning to major in art because I was interested in theatre design, stage design or television design. – Jim Henson

74358. NBC was trying to convert all of their local programming to color right away to encourage the sale of the sets, so I barely remember working in black and white, although I do know that I did do it, but there was not a major difference, though. – Jim Henson

74359. It’s into the same bag as E.T. and Yoda, wherein you’re trying to create something that people will actually believe, but it’s not so much a symbol of the thing, but you’re trying to do the thing itself. – Jim Henson

74360. Actually the copies of characters is something I don’t particularly like to talk about in articles but just for your information, most characters there’s only one. – Jim Henson

74361. At the time of Polaroid – and I did a couple of other commercials just before I stopped doing that stuff – at that point I was at the level where they respect you and your opinion and all that sort of thing. – Jim Henson

74362. But with The Dark Crystal, instead of puppetry we’re trying to go toward a sense of realism – toward a reality of creatures that are actually alive and we’re mixing up puppetry and all kinds of other techniques. – Jim Henson

74363. I decided that what I really wanted to do was go off and paint. – Jim Henson

74364. If you’re doing a large, complicated character with radio controls, it might take a number of people several months to make it and if you’re talking about a quick little hand puppet, it could be made in 2 days, so there’s enormous range there, and no real easy generalities. – Jim Henson

74365. And also there wasn’t much money in television in those days anyhow. – Jim Henson

74366. It has always been difficult to get Big Bird to be very pretty. Big Bird in England is much more gorgeous. – Jim Henson

74367. I do remember doing shows strictly in black and white, too, so you’re right. – Jim Henson

74368. If anything, there’s a difference in working with color in England and the color in the US. – Jim Henson

74369. I’ve never felt any sense of competition with anybody, and we’re all friends; we’re all good friends. – Jim Henson

74370. I was very interested in theatre, mostly in stage design. I did a little bit of acting. – Jim Henson

74371. I think my own strengths are in television production. – Jim Henson

74372. Cult recruiting methods based on dosing victims with the brain chemicals released during capture bonding would make cults even more of a problem than they are now. – Keith Henson

74373. I can’t think of anyone who is up on evolutionary psychology and related areas who is deluded enough to be called a utopian. – Keith Henson

74374. Genetic studies in Iceland have found that many of the women who were the founding stock of Iceland came from England and what is now France. Some were probably captured and carried off in Viking raids only 40 generations ago. – Keith Henson

74375. Fighting hard to protect yourself and your relatives is good for your genes, but when captured and escape is not possible, giving up short of dying and making the best you can of the new situation is also good for your genes. – Keith Henson

74376. Evolution acts slowly. Our psychological characteristics today are those that promoted reproductive success in the ancestral environmen. – Keith Henson

74382. Brigham Young had 47 children, and over 50 women as wives. – Keith Henson

74383. Attention is the way social primates measure status. It is highly rewarding because it causes the release of brain chemicals such as dopamine and endorphins. – Keith Henson

74384. As for leadership, I am the kind who leads reluctantly and more by example than anything else. Someone had to be on the incorporation papers as president. – Keith Henson

74385. Anyone who has ever had the feeling of being higher than a kite after giving a public speech is well aware of the effects of attention. – Keith Henson

74386. I much prefer the modern world. – Keith Henson

74387. Action leads to Attention. that in the short-term releases Rewarding brain chemicals and in the long term improves reproductive success. – Keith Henson

74388. Some people recovering from drugs or alcohol stay with the programs indefinitely, making the recovery program their family, a long-term source of attention rewards. – Keith Henson

74389. The rare person is still interested in new advances when they are adults. There is possibly a correlation with intelligence. In any case, you have to be fairly bright to keep learning and changing attitudes as you get older. – Keith Henson

74390. The information that is passed from person to person and from generation to generation is the primary factor that gives humans a competitive advantage over other animals. – Keith Henson

74391. Successful cult memes induce intense social interaction behaviour between cult members. This trips the attention detectors. – Keith Henson

74392. Primates will continue to play social games without the least insight into what is killing them. – Keith Henson

74393. People under the influence of cults is similar to that we observe in addicts. Typical behaviour for both includes draining bank accounts, neglecting children, destroying relations with family and losing interest in anything except the drug or cult. – Keith Henson

74394. People repeat behaviour that leads to flooding their brains with pleasurable chemicals. The short-term reward loop acts over hours to years, and the long-term reproductive success loop over generations. – Keith Henson

74395. I suspect that a substantial fraction of human problems in the world today, not just cults, result from the mismatch between the current environment and the environment in which we evolved. – Keith Henson

74396. Most of the suicide hijackers came from Saudi Arabia, a place not lacking in wealth. But due to rapid population growth, the wealth per capita has fallen by about half in a generation. – Keith Henson

74397. Lie detection is like language; there is a learning window. Telling whoppers to small children seems to be a family tradition in many families. – Keith Henson

74398. The drug or cult has major if not exclusive sources of brain rewards. – Keith Henson

74399. High status males had multiple wives or additional mating opportunities in the ancestral environment. – Keith Henson

74400. If anyone wonders why the airlines are not doing well it is because flying has been made such an unpleasant and degrading experience. – Keith Henson

74401. People can undergo a sudden change of thinking and loyalties under threat of death or intense social pressure and isolation from friends and family. – Keith Henson

74402. I think I’m the first man to sit on top of the world. – Matthew Henson

74403. It’ll work, if God, wind, leads, ice, snow, and all the hells of this damned frozen land are willing. – Matthew Henson

74404. I was a tomboy right from the time I was a kid and loved to be like that. I’d hate all the girlie things. Well my best friends as a kid have been boys. I get along best with the opposite sex. I guess that’s the case with most people though! – Natasha Henstridge

74405. I think I have been very lucky as far as my acting career goes. – Natasha Henstridge

74407. When I started off, I didn’t only ride to fame on my looks though many people I know think otherwise. – Natasha Henstridge

74408. Well, I have a couple of projects in the pipeline, but I’m taking things slow for now and being choosy about the roles I take up. One thing I can assure you of is that you are going to see a lot of me! – Natasha Henstridge

74409. Today, I guess I give a lot more thought to the roles before I sign them. – Natasha Henstridge

74410. The nude scenes were a little eerie and I felt a bit odd. Yeah, when the camera scanned up my body, I said to my friend, ‘Now, that’s a close-up.’ I mean, you see every inch of my body. But I’m okay with it and so it was cool. – Natasha Henstridge

74411. Even my parents are so cute, and they deal with every movie of mine excellently. They check with me ever so casually by asking ‘Now how much of nudity are we going to see in this one?’ – Natasha Henstridge

74412. I started off as a model and struggled for some time until I got a break as an actress. I was too stubborn to let go and was sure I was in the right place at the right time. I just fought and I think that’s how I am where I am today. – Natasha Henstridge

74413. My main aim has always been to do good quality films with roles that have some substance. With Power and Beauty there were loads of things that I liked about the movie, which made me opt for it. – Natasha Henstridge

74414. I never forget my old days and I never fly too high I have my feet fixed firmly on the ground! – Natasha Henstridge

74415. I guess Species was a movie made for me and hence I bagged the role. In fact even when acting, I never thought the outcome would be so good which I think it was! The entire role was a challenge. I was to be this strange yet sexy thing which was challenging! – Natasha Henstridge

74416. I believe that every role that I have done this far has had quality and content. My roles have been very demanding and every role has been a challenge and a learning experience that has helped me mature as an actress. – Natasha Henstridge

74417. I began as a model, but that did not really hold my interest for too long! I believe I stood out from the parade of models trying to make it in Hollywood, which helped launch my career beyond the one-night-stand horror movie. – Natasha Henstridge

74418. You can tell more about a person by what he says about others than you can by what others say about him. – Audrey Hepburn

74419. When you have nobody you can make a cup of tea for, when nobody needs you, that’s when I think life is over. – Audrey Hepburn

74421. There are certain shades of limelight that can wreck a girl’s complexion. – Audrey Hepburn

74422. Paris is always a good idea. – Audrey Hepburn

74423. Nothing is impossible, the word itself says ‘I’m possible’! – Audrey Hepburn

74424. Living is like tearing through a museum. Not until later do you really start absorbing what you saw, thinking about it, looking it up in a book, and remembering – because you can’t take it in all at once. – Audrey Hepburn

74896. I’m sure that they will continue to look for ways to try and undermine my support, but I have every confidence that in doing this job for South Dakota, I will continue to build on my support and be able to succeed once again in November. – Stephanie Herseth

74897. The third stage was the reaction that came when the body struggled to compensate for its ills – when, for instance, the white count not only returned to normal but increased to much higher than normal levels. – John Hersey

74898. Learning starts with failure; the first failure is the beginning of education. – John Hersey

74899. Many people who did not die right away came down with nausea, headache, diarrhea, malaise, and fever, which lasted several days. Doctors could not be certain whether some of these symptoms were the result of radiation or nervous shock. – John Hersey

74900. The doctors realized in retrospect that even though most of these dead had also suffered from burns and blast effects, they had absorbed enough radiation to kill them. The rays simply destroyed body cells – caused their nuclei to degenerate and broke their walls. – John Hersey

74901. The second stage set in ten or fifteen days after the bombing. Its first symptom was falling hair. Diarrhea and fever, which in some cases went as high as 106, came next. – John Hersey

74902. What has kept the world safe from the bomb since 1945 has not been deterrence, in the sense of fear of specific weapons, so much as it’s been memory. The memory of what happened at Hiroshima. – John Hersey

74903. All morning they watched for the plane which they thought would be looking for them. They cursed war in general and PTs in particular. At about ten o’clock the hulk heaved a moist sigh and turned turtle. – John Hersey

74904. And, as if nature were protecting man against his own ingenuity, the reproductive processes were affected for a time; men became sterile, women had miscarriages, menstruation stopped. – John Hersey

74905. It’s a failure of national vision when you regard children as weapons, and talents as materials you can mine, assay, and fabricate for profit and defense. – John Hersey

74906. Journalism allows its readers to witness history; fiction gives its readers an opportunity to live it. – John Hersey

74907. The first stage had been all over before the doctors even knew they were dealing with a new sickness; it was the direct reaction to the bombardment of the body, at the moment when the bomb went off, by neutrons, beta particles, and gamma rays. – John Hersey

74908. Most of the younger people I knew didn’t seem to have a handle on things; they hadn’t found their place, they didn’t understand how the world works, they didn’t understand how to treat other people, and they didn’t know how to stop thinking about themselves. – Kristin Hersh

74909. Popular music sucks so bad right now. – Kristin Hersh

74910. I would go to radio stations and they were supposed to be interviewing me and playing my record and they would say, We’re playing too many women right now, we can’t play your record. – Kristin Hersh

74911. We need a day of the dead. That’s a perfect celebration. – Kristin Hersh

74912. We didn’t really swallow much of the Jesus thing, but we got the vocab. – Kristin Hersh

74913. To do it nationally or internationally, you have to follow a few more rules. – Kristin Hersh

74914. The songs keep on writing themselves, and I really love them. It’s as close as I get to a religion. – Kristin Hersh

74915. The songs become the show, which is how it should be. – Kristin Hersh

74916. That’s my dream job, to be able to mail songs out to people who want to hear them. Paste my face on them and not travel all over the world trying to sell them. – Kristin Hersh

74917. Before you can make good music, you just have to shut up. Then the music can say what it has to say. – Kristin Hersh

74918. I have to play as much of the game as I allow myself to get the music heard. But it’s not unlike the rest of the world, so I’m not as up in arms about it as I could be. – Kristin Hersh

74919. I guess I’ll just slip into the studio after the next time with the Muses, and then just keel over and die. – Kristin Hersh

74920. I grew up in a commune where no one considered me female, particularly. – Kristin Hersh

74921. I felt like it was a great secret when I found out that I could be in my 30s. – Kristin Hersh

74922. I don’t mind what the market is, but why is it vapid? If they’re such a bunch of idiots, why don’t you show them good music instead? They’re not going to know the difference. – Kristin Hersh

74923. I don’t like what the radio plays for the most part. – Kristin Hersh

74924. I don’t like the idea of famous people. – Kristin Hersh

74925. My brother and I were meditating before we were 6 years old, having to stare at the wall and chant. – Kristin Hersh

74926. Good taste – that’s all you really need when you’re playing an instrument. – Kristin Hersh

74927. Nirvana was pop. You can have distorted guitars and people say it’s alternative, but you can’t break out of pop music’s constructs and still get extensive radio play and media coverage. – Kristin Hersh

74928. I’m beginning to think I have two years encountering sexism without really realising it. – Kristin Hersh

74929. I’ve always chosen my band members based on their sense of humor. It might sound stupid, but it means not only are they fun to live with on a tour bus for years, but humor implies intelligence. – Kristin Hersh

74930. If you’re the band leader you ask more of yourself than anyone else, so they tend to raise the bar for me. – Kristin Hersh

74931. Men are allowed to write songs about people and women are allowed to write songs about women. – Kristin Hersh

74932. You have to follow every melodic line, every emotional idea, or you don’t get your money’s worth. – Kristin Hersh

74933. MP3’s are perfect. – Kristin Hersh

74934. My parents didn’t treat me as if there was anything in the world I couldn’t do, except be unkind. – Kristin Hersh

74935. I don’t have the inclinations that other people seem to have as far as the business is concerned. – Kristin Hersh

74936. Bush can talk about 100,000 people wanting to go work in the police or in the army. It’s because there’s nothing else for them to do. They’re willing to stand in line to get bombed because they want to take care of their family. – Seymour Hersh

74937. It doesn’t matter that Bush scares the hell out of me. What matters is that he scares the hell out of a lot of very important people in Washington who can’t speak out, in the military, in the intelligence community. – Seymour Hersh

74938. It’s shades of Vietnam again, folks: body counts. – Seymour Hersh

74939. The idea of photographing an Arab man naked and having him simulate homosexual activity, and having an American GI woman in the photographs, is the end of society in their eyes. – Seymour Hersh

74940. I’m a better American than 99% of the guys in the White House. – Seymour Hersh

74941. Actually, my correspondent’s language is better than mine. He can put his sentiment into words. – Alfred Day Hershey

74942. Humans love truth and justice, and rejoice in ceremonies that honor those qualities. For that sentiment we should indeed thank God. – Alfred Day Hershey

74943. I can only point out a curious fact. Year after year the Nobel Awards bring a moment of happiness not only to the recipients, not only to colleagues and friends of the recipients, but even to strangers. – Alfred Day Hershey

74944. I know actors come around and they always talk like that, but I don’t do publicity if I don’t like the film. – Barbara Hershey

74945. I am not afraid of aging, but more afraid of people’s reactions to my aging. – Barbara Hershey

74946. I just think Australia tends to make very good movies, so if someone hands me an Australian or an American film script I would guess the Australian film would be more intriguing. – Barbara Hershey

74947. I like the sensibility of Australian film a lot and the crews are fantastic. Great characters, wonderful people and no line between – I think in Hollywood they have this line between actors and crew a lot, and that just didn’t exist, which I really appreciated. – Barbara Hershey

74948. Yes, it was love at first sight. I feel that after all these years, I have finally found my soul mate. – Barbara Hershey

74949. That’s what everyone said attracted them to Lantana – I call it an adult mystery, because it’s not a thriller in the sense of that other way, but it is a mystery. – Barbara Hershey

74950. Sydney’s a beautiful city. It was a great experience. – Barbara Hershey

74951. So I was always passionate about it and felt that it was sort of the golden thread inside me in terms of what I was supposed to do in terms of work but I think I have relaxed a lot in terms of the actual experience and actually enjoy it more and enjoy the people more. – Barbara Hershey

74952. It’s also very painful, because I feel, and I know, probably all women my age and older feel like we’re better and have more to give and are more fun now. – Barbara Hershey

74953. I loved that it was about human relationships and then it was a mystery without falling into the trap of a thriller per se, because it pulled you in through people rather than through events or effects. – Barbara Hershey

74954. I look back on my life like everybody does but not just career. I mean I look back on my life as a whole, so I don’t think that I dwell there or anything and in terms of work I hope that there is a lot in front of me. – Barbara Hershey

74955. When we know as much about people as hog specialists know about hogs, we’ll be better off. – Lewis B. Hershey

74956. Between a fellow who is stupid and honest and one who is smart and crooked, I will take the first. I won’t get much out of him, but with that other guy I can’t keep what I’ve got. – Lewis B. Hershey

74957. A boy becomes an adult three years before his parents think he does, and about two years after he thinks he does. – Lewis B. Hershey

74959. Nobody is in the process of making any changes that we can be specific about. – Arthur Hertzberg

74960. How can a rabbi not live with doubt? The Bible itself is a book of doubt. – Arthur Hertzberg

74961. What are you going to do to preserve a tradition that is the peculiar and unique culture that Judaism inculcates? The American Jewish community is not going to survive by lining up against its common enemy. – Arthur Hertzberg

74962. The Roosevelt enactment of Social Security was a moral revolution in our country: We were assured that we would never reach the very depths of poverty. And to be told, that we are now going to gamble it, on Wall Street, is nonsense! – Arthur Hertzberg

74963. My purpose is to have American Jews look away from the success story with which they’ve cheered themselves up, and to have them remember the classical tradition, whatever it is. – Arthur Hertzberg

74964. Look, the hard-line Jewish position is based, to this day, on the idea that the Palestinian Arabs somehow or other will either accept third-class status, or they will pick up and go away. Now, this isn’t happening. – Arthur Hertzberg

74965. Jewish fundamentalism is teaching that Jews can fight with guns and with civil war, against being relocated off the West Bank, and disobey the orders of their government. That is the call to jihad, to several kinds of jihad. – Arthur Hertzberg

74966. I write to tell my grandchildren where they come from, and what their grandparents were up to, and I hope they will in their own way continue. I invite anyone else to listen in. – Arthur Hertzberg

74967. I think anti-Semitism is the meal ticket of the organizations that fight it. – Arthur Hertzberg

74968. I regard Christian and Jewish fundamentalism, and all other forms of fundamentalism, as the enemies of God – and I hope you’ll quote me on that. – Arthur Hertzberg

74969. Most American Jews came from the lower middle classes, and therefore they brought with them not a lot of Jewish culture. The American Jewish story starts with Ellis Island, and the candy store in the Bronx. – Arthur Hertzberg

74970. I argue that the Talmud is about the constant struggle to understand. – Arthur Hertzberg

74971. But, I know enough people in that court, through the years, to know one thing: There’s always somebody who surprises you, who rises above what they thought they appointed him for, and stays with the separation of powers, and with the right of the law to decide. – Arthur Hertzberg

74972. A large part of the problem, is that young people are being born into the world and growing up without much hope. And so, they become murderers, they become suicide bombers. – Arthur Hertzberg

74973. I don’t know where Bush is going – yet. But, Sharon obviously – I wrote somewhere in the last several months, that Sharon has adopted, essentially, the position of the Labor Party: that the Palestinians are here to stay. – Arthur Hertzberg

74974. I got bitten by the free software bug in February of 1998 around the time of the Mozilla announcement. – Andy Hertzfeld

74975. The Macintosh having shipped, his next agenda was to turn the rest of Apple into the Mac group. He had perceived the rest of Apple wasn’t as creative or motivated as the Mac team, and what you need to take over the company are managers, not innovators or technical people. – Andy Hertzfeld

74976. The Apple II was not designed like an ordinary product. It used crazy tricks everywhere. – Andy Hertzfeld

74977. Scotty heard that I was thinking about quitting Apple because of his actions, so he called me into his office and asked what it would take for me to stay? I said, maybe if I could work on the Mac project, which Steve had just taken over from Jef Raskin. – Andy Hertzfeld

74978. People who work on the user interface side need to have empathy as a key characteristic. But if you are writing device drivers you don’t really need to understand humans so well. – Andy Hertzfeld

74979. Part of Steve’s job was to drum into us how important what we were doing actually would be to the world. – Andy Hertzfeld

74980. In fact when I first got my Apple II the first thing I did was turn it on and off, on and off, just because I had the power to do so, which I’d never had on a computer before. – Andy Hertzfeld

74981. I was a grad student at UC Berkeley when I bought my Apple II and it suddenly because a lot more interesting than school. – Andy Hertzfeld

74982. I started working at Apple about 18 months after I bought my Apple II. – Andy Hertzfeld

74983. I left General Magic in 1996 to become an Internet hobbyist – got a T-1 line to my house. At one point I had all four food banks of the Bay Area hosted from this house here. – Andy Hertzfeld

74984. We were developing an innovative Personal Information Manager called Chandler but a couple years ago I took off from that to do a project writing down my memoirs essentially, reminiscing about the development of the Macintosh. – Andy Hertzfeld

74985. I knew the Apple II was great when I bought it, but as I dug into the details it just completely blew me away the creative artistic approach that the designers had taken. – Andy Hertzfeld

74986. Working long hours being single helps because your time is yours. Once you have a family your time isn’t all yours anymore. Most of the Mac team, we were in our mid-20’s, most of us were single, and we were able to essentially devote our lives to it. – Andy Hertzfeld

74987. I did some products for the Apple II, most notably the first small low cost thermal printer, the Silent Type. – Andy Hertzfeld

74988. I developed some unique software to public it on the web that I call the Folklore Project. – Andy Hertzfeld

74989. But typically for a project like the Mac, the size we had was pretty good. And it has different stages. The team grows as you have to write manuals and do testing… though the Mac had no formal testing. – Andy Hertzfeld

74990. But I think Steve’s main contribution besides just the pure leadership is his passion for excellence. He’s a perfectionist. Good enough isn’t good enough. And also his creative spirit. You know he really, really wants to do something great. – Andy Hertzfeld

74991. Being idealistic really helps you overcome some of the many obstacles put in your path. – Andy Hertzfeld

74992. As you know, Microsoft eventually kind of grabbed the gold ring out of Apple’s hands, I guess. – Andy Hertzfeld

74994. A lot of people thought Steve Jobs was a CEO of Apple but he never was until he came back to Apple in 1997. – Andy Hertzfeld

74995. I left Apple in April of 1984, pretty soon after the introduction of the Mac. – Andy Hertzfeld

74996. We’ve practiced loving long enough, let’s come at last to hate. – Georg Herwegh

74997. There is nothing in the world more stubborn than a corpse: you can hit it, you can knock it to pieces, but you cannot convince it. – Alexander Herzen

74998. It is possible to lead astray an entire generation, to strike it blind, to drive it insane, to direct it towards a false goal. Napoleon proved this. – Alexander Herzen

74999. Liberalism, austere in political trifles, has learned ever more artfully to unite a constant protest against the government with a constant submission to it. – Alexander Herzen

75000. Life has taught me to think, but thinking has not taught me to live. – Alexander Herzen
