75240. And their pals vote for their stuff when they’re not on the panel, and it just keeps going that way. And they tend to be very fringe artists, so anything before the 20th century is not worth considering. This is out of date. – Charlton Heston

75241. You cut their money back, for one thing… I go back a long way with the NEA. – Charlton Heston

75295. A modern health and social care system has to be completely focussed on the needs of its users. – Patricia Hewitt

75297. You don’t repair that relationship by sitting down and talking about trust or making promises. Actually, what rebuilds it is living it and doing things differently – and I think that is what is going to make the difference. – Patricia Hewitt

75298. Well I think all I would say on that is, when we were in opposition in Britain and Hawke and then Keating were in power here, Labor was in power here, we learnt a huge amount from the ALP’s experience here. – Patricia Hewitt

75300. I have very real concerns about the civil liberties implications of ultimately requiring every resident to submit themselves for compulsory fingerprinting or some other biometric test. – Patricia Hewitt

75302. As patients and consumers, we are better informed today about our health care than any previous generation. – Patricia Hewitt

75304. We’re seeing quite a lot of people who really would like a return to class-based politics. – Patricia Hewitt

75305. And I hope very much that the ALP will become increasingly engaged in the international discussions that are taking place amongst centre-left parties generally. – Patricia Hewitt

75306. I think he was absolutely right not to go to UN last week… First things first – that is, values and people here in their local communities, and remembering all politics is local, and trusting people more. – Patricia Hewitt

75307. People are not perfect… very often the relationships that are strongest are those where people have worked through big crises, but they’ve had to work through them. So the challenge to us is to work through that. – Patricia Hewitt

75308. So there clearly is a sense in which the Labour Party here, certainly at State level is reaching out and connecting with people and reflecting the aspirations and needs of, you know the mass of ordinary Australians. – Patricia Hewitt

75309. The 2 million people who work in the NHS and social care are also themselves patients and users. I know they all want to treat patients and users the way they and their families would want to be treated and that is the purpose of our reforms. – Patricia Hewitt

75310. The accusation that we’ve lost our soul resonates with a very modern concern about authenticity. – Patricia Hewitt

75317. Hussein has a strategy. I’m sure he’ll implement that strategy, and it would be to our detriment. We’re embarking on an exercise about which we know nothing. – John Hewson

75318. I got a bit enamoured with bigger houses and things like that. – John Hewson

75319. I had this habit of an academic of answering the question. I should have fobbed it off. – John Hewson

75320. I think the Prime Minister has embarked on a journey and he has no idea where he’s taking us. – John Hewson

75321. I’m not tied to any particular political line. – John Hewson

75322. I was not a politician. – John Hewson

75323. I’ve been arguing this for months. This is not our war. This is not a war we should be in. Australia’s better spending its time negotiating with North Korea. – John Hewson

75325. The only person you resent is yourself. – John Hewson

75326. The reality is, it will be a significant conflict going for many, many months, if not longer. Saddam Hussein is not a fool. He hasn’t been sitting there waiting to get shot for 13 years. – John Hewson

75327. To make us a terrorist target in a region that is full of terrorism is dumb and unforgiveable. – John Hewson

75328. To send our troops, our ships, our planes to this war is ridiculous. – John Hewson

75329. Tony Blair will probably get thrown out by his party. – John Hewson

75330. We’ve lost sight of our role in the region and our view of our colleagues in the region. – John Hewson

75331. I never wanted to separate from either wife. It was accumulated stress. We had virtually no time to ourselves. After politics we were both working very hard to establish new careers. – John Hewson

75338. But if we begin thinking about the world being over 100 million years old, then it’s absolutely by chance that you and I are sitting here alive today, while all the others are dead or have never been born. – Thor Heyerdahl

75339. We must wake up to the insane reality of our time. We are all irresponsible, unless we demand from the responsible decision makers that modern armaments must no longer be made available to people whose former battle axes and swords our ancestors condemned. – Thor Heyerdahl

75340. We have always been taught that navigation is the result of civilization, but modern archeology has demonstrated very clearly that this is not so. – Thor Heyerdahl

75342. Progress is man’s ability to complicate simplicity. – Thor Heyerdahl

75343. Those who have experienced the most, have suffered so much that they have ceased to hate. Hate is more for those with a slightly guilty conscience, and who by chewing on old hate in times of peace wish to demonstrate how great they were during the war. – Thor Heyerdahl

75344. I was in uniform for four years, and I know that heroism doesn’t occur from taking orders, but rather from people who through their own willpower and strength are willing to sacrifice their lives for an idea. – Thor Heyerdahl

75345. I have never been able to grasp the meaning of time. I don’t believe it exists. I’ve felt this again and again, when alone and out in nature. On such occasions, time does not exist. Nor does the future exist. – Thor Heyerdahl

75348. For every minute, the future is becoming the past. – Thor Heyerdahl

75377. Is there some risk every day we walk out our front door? Every time we get in our car? Yeah. Are we materially less safe now than we were 10 years ago? Whatever delta there is, it’s very small. – John Hickenlooper

75378. I would argue that’s because we had a bunch of smart people running around here. They were coming in and working very hard and many of them had left jobs in which they made significantly more money. – John Hickenlooper

75379. The most important thing a mayor does is hire talented people to run the city. – John Hickenlooper

75380. The world has become rapidly more competitive. – John Hickenlooper

75381. There could have been more planning in New Orleans, but you look at all the devastation that happened there – have we gotten to 3,000 deaths yet? For that magnitude of a disaster, that’s not all that bad. – John Hickenlooper

75382. Today we’re dealing with metropolitan Shanghai, metropolitan New Delhi or Paris. If we’re competing at that level, our diversity, that richness of people coming from so many different backgrounds, is one of our greatest advantages. – John Hickenlooper

75383. We are, by many measures, one of the more diverse cities in the country, growing more diverse all the time, and one of the more harmonious in terms of how we live together. – John Hickenlooper

75386. Last, in restaurants you spend a lot of time dealing with people who are very unhappy. Soup has been spilled on their laps, they’ve waited 10 minutes to get their check so they can leave, and you learn how to listen, I think, in a much more proactive way than government does. – John Hickenlooper

75387. Oftentimes, when constituencies or sectors of opinion are distinct, when they are confronted with a situation where they’re going to have to make a serious compromise, they react very negatively publicly, but they also recognize when they step back that this is right. – John Hickenlooper

75389. In the restaurant business, you never want to have enemies, whereas it seems that many politicians judge their success by how high their enemies are and whether they can show that they can hold their ground and give a punch for every punch they take. – John Hickenlooper

75390. Especially during the first nine months, there was so much going on with trying to hire 55 people to run the city, it was hard to imagine any honeymoon. – John Hickenlooper

75391. Denver is a city that will be far more defined by its future than its past. – John Hickenlooper

75392. For me, the risks in terms of opening that brewpub were fairly high. I put my house up as collateral, I invested the liquid money I had and two years of my time to get it over, but that’s really not much of a risk for what the potential reward was if it worked. – John Hickenlooper

75393. From my subjective position, there was no honeymoon. – John Hickenlooper

75394. America is always attracting people, from all over the earth. – John Hickenlooper

75396. I think we’re in good shape, but the tragedy of Hurricane Katrina is in some small way mitigated by the fact that we now have more people talking about it, thinking about it and working on it, so that we will be more vigilant and ready. – John Hickenlooper

75397. A mayor is a symbol and a public face of what a city bureaucracy provides its citizens. – John Hickenlooper

75399. If it was really successful, it was a life calling, a career I was excited about doing, so I didn’t think the overall risk was anywhere near as high as what the reward was. – John Hickenlooper

75400. And if I lost I would have gone back to 12 weeks of vacation, because I was successful enough that I was spending much more time on non-profit boards and traveling a lot. – John Hickenlooper

75401. I think it’s just a lack of ability, we’re incapable of writing hits. – Kenny Hickey

75460. It’s not about retro or modern, it’s about this note or that note, which sounds better? – Dan Hicks

75608. When I entered politics, I took the only downward turn you could take from journalism. – Jim Hightower

75609. What’s new is that the White House itself has now been corporatized. It’s not politicians working for the corporate interests. They are the corporate interests. That’s where Bush came from, and Cheney and Rumsfeld. – Jim Hightower
