76637. It’s a journey, it’s a fight everyday. There was a real effort to stay in the program… So far this has been a very successful rehab. – Peter Hobson

76638. Work is hard. Distractions are plentiful. And time is short. – Adam Hochschild

76639. The influx of women into paid work and her increased power raise a woman’s aspirations and hopes for equal treatment at home. Her lower wage and status at work and the threat of divorce reduce what she presses for and actually expects. – Arlie Hochschild

76640. Many women cut back what had to be done at home by redefining what the house, the marriage and, sometimes, what the child needs. One woman described a fairly common pattern: I do my half. I do half of his half, and the rest doesn’t get done. – Arlie Hochschild

76641. If you look to lead, invest at least 40% of your time managing yourself – your ethics, character, principles, purpose, motivation, and conduct. Invest at least 30% managing those with authority over you, and 15% managing your peers. – Dee Hock

76642. Language was a huge expansion of that capacity to deal with information. – Dee Hock

76644. An organization, no matter how well designed, is only as good as the people who live and work in it. – Dee Hock

76650. If you go back to the first single-cell form of life, it clearly possessed the capacity to receive, to utilize, to store, to transform, and to transmit information. – Dee Hock

76651. It is essential to employ, trust, and reward those whose perspective, ability, and judgment are radically different from yours. It is also rare, for it requires uncommon humility, tolerance, and wisdom. – Dee Hock

76652. It won’t do away with hierarchy totally, but the principal leader will be the person who most exemplifies the kind of organization and behavior required who is best able to create the conditions such organizations require. – Dee Hock

76653. Lead yourself, lead your superiors, lead your peers, and free your people to do the same. All else is trivia. – Dee Hock

76657. With the advent of genetic engineering the time required for the evolution of new species may literally collapse. – Dee Hock

76659. Throughout history, it took centuries for the habits of one culture to materially affect another. Now, that which becomes popular in one country can sweep through others within months. – Dee Hock

76660. Think about technological float: it took centuries for the wheel to gain universal acceptance. Now any microchip device can be in use around the world in weeks. – Dee Hock

76661. The prudent course is to make an investment in learning, testing and understanding, determine how the new concepts compare to how you now operate and thoughtfully determine how they apply to what you want to achieve in the future. – Dee Hock

76662. The problem is never how to get new, innovative thoughts into your mind, but how to get old ones out. – Dee Hock

76663. The closest thing to a law of nature in business is that form has an affinity for expense, while substance has an affinity for income. – Dee Hock

76664. Substance is enduring, form is ephemeral. – Dee Hock

76665. Money motivates neither the best people, nor the best in people. It can move the body and influence the mind, but it cannot touch the heart or move the spirit; that is reserved for belief, principle, and morality. – Dee Hock

76675. Yes, I did, I mean I painted er, in a kind of abstract expressionist way, because of course that was exciting. – David Hockney

76676. You had to be aware that I saw that photography was a mere episode in the history of the optical projection and when the chemicals ended, meaning the picture was fixed by chemicals, we were in a new era. – David Hockney

76677. A belief is like a guillotine, just as heavy, just as light. – David Hockney

76678. And then I went round the corner and there’s a Van Gogh portrait, and you just think, well, this is another level. A higher level, actually. I love the Sargent, but it’s not the level of Van Gogh. – David Hockney

76679. Anything simple always interests me. – David Hockney

76680. Art has to move you and design does not, unless it’s a good design for a bus. – David Hockney

76681. But slowly I began to use cameras and then think about what it was that was going on. It took me a long time, I mean I actually played with cameras and photography for about 20 years. – David Hockney

76682. But the moment you use an ordinary camera, you are not seeing the picture, remember, meaning, you had to remember what you’ve taken. Now you could see it of course, with a digital thing, but remember in 1982 you couldn’t. – David Hockney

76683. But, I would always be thinking of how pictures are constructed and colour, how to use it, I mean you’re using it for constructing, makes you think about it, the place did as well. – David Hockney

76684. I made a photograph of a garden in Kyoto, the Zen garden, which is a rectangle. But a photograph taken from any one point will not show, well it shows a rectangle, but not with ninety degree angles. – David Hockney

76690. The moment you cheat for the sake of beauty, you know you’re an artist. – David Hockney

76691. The mind is the limit. As long as the mind can envision the fact that you can do something, you can do it, as long as you really believe 100 percent. – David Hockney

76692. Television is becoming a collage – there are so many channels that you move through them making a collage yourself. In that sense, everyone sees something a bit different. – David Hockney

76693. Smoking calms me down. It’s enjoyable. I don’t want politicians deciding what is exciting in my life. – David Hockney

76695. Most artists work all the time, they do actually, especially good artists, they work all the time, what else is there to do? I mean you do. – David Hockney

76697. One often forms a mental image of an artist through his work and is often disappointed on meeting him. – Alun Hoddinott

76698. I have a number of alternatives, and each one gives me something different. – Glenn Hoddle

76699. At this moment in time I did not say them things. – Glenn Hoddle

76700. All Church power arises from the indwelling of the Spirit; therefore those in whom the Spirit dwells are the seat of Church power. But the Spirit dwells in the whole Church, and therefore the whole Church is the seat of Church power. – Charles Hodge

76701. The Church is everywhere represented as one. It is one body, one family, one fold, one kingdom. It is one because pervaded by one Spirit. We are all baptized into one Spirit so as to become, says the apostle, on body. – Charles Hodge

76702. All Church power is, therefore, properly ministerial and administrative. Everything is to be done in the name of Christ, and in accordance with his directions. – Charles Hodge

76703. As the Church is the aggregate of believers, there is an intimate analogy between the experience of the individual believer, and of the Church as a whole. – Charles Hodge

76704. But to be the Vicar of Christ, to claim to exercise his prerogatives on earth, does involve a claim to his attributes, and therefore our opposition to Popery is opposition to a man claiming to be God. – Charles Hodge

76705. Christ has not only ordained that there shall be such officers in his Church – he has not only specified their duties and prerogatives – but he gives the requisite qualifications, and calls those thus qualified, and by that call gives them their official authority. – Charles Hodge

76706. If all Church power vests in the clergy, then the people are practically bound to passive obedience in all matters of faith and practice; for all right of private judgment is then denied. – Charles Hodge

76707. If the Church is a living body united to the same head, governed by the same laws, and pervaded by the same Spirit, it is impossible that one part should be independent of all the rest. – Charles Hodge

76708. It is a thoroughly anti-christian doctrine that the Spirit of God, and therefore the life and governing power of the Church, resides in the ministry, to the exclusion of the people. – Charles Hodge

76709. Original sin is the only rational solution of the undeniable fact of the deep, universal and early manifested sinfulness of men in all ages, of every class, and in every part of the world. – Charles Hodge

76710. Our first remark on this subject is that the ministry is an office, and not merely a work. – Charles Hodge

76711. Our second remark is, that the office is of divine appointment, not merely in the sense in which the civil powers are ordained of God, but in the sense that ministers derive their authority from Christ, and not from the people. – Charles Hodge

76712. Romanists tell us that the Pope is the vicar of Christ; that he is his successor as the universal head and ruler of the Church on earth. If this is so, he must be a Christ. – Charles Hodge

76713. Ruling elders are declared to be the representatives of the people. – Charles Hodge

76714. All the reasons which require the subjection of a believer to the brethren of a particular church, require his subjection to all his brethren in the Lord. – Charles Hodge

76716. The Popish theory, which assumes that Christ, the Apostles and believers, constituted the Church while our Saviour was on earth, and this organization was designed to be perpetual. – Charles Hodge

76717. When the great promise of the Spirit was fulfilled on the day of Pentecost, it was fulfilled not in reference to the apostles only. – Charles Hodge

76718. There can, therefore, be no doubt that Presbyterians do carry out the principle that Church power vests in the Church itself, and that the people have a right to a substantive part in its discipline and government. – Charles Hodge

76719. The ultimate ground of faith and knowledge is confidence in God. – Charles Hodge

76720. So too, in forming a constitution, or in enacting rules of procedure, or making canons, the people do not merely passively assent, but actively cooperate. They have, in all these matters, the same authority as the clergy. – Charles Hodge

76721. The Reformers, therefore, as instruments in the hands of God, in delivering the Church from bondage to prelates, did not make it a tumultuous multitude, in which every man was a law to himself, free to believe, and free to do what he pleased. – Charles Hodge

76722. The office of presbyters is a permanent one. – Charles Hodge

76723. The Independent or Congregational theory includes two principles; first, that the governing and executive power in the Church is in the brotherhood; and secondly, that the Church organization is complete in each worshipping assembly, which is independent of every other. – Charles Hodge

76724. The Galatians are severely censured for giving heed to false doctrines, and are called to pronounce even an apostle anathema, if he preached another gospel. – Charles Hodge

76725. The functions of these elders, therefore, determine the power of the people; for a representative is one chosen by others to do in their name what they are entitled to do in their own persons; or rather to exercise the powers which radically inhere in those for whom they act. – Charles Hodge

76726. The Church, however, is a self-governing society, distinct from the State, having its officers and laws, and, therefore, an administrative government of its own. – Charles Hodge

76727. The Church, during the apostolic age, did not consist of isolated, independent congregations, but was one body, of which the separate churches were constituent members, each subject to all the rest, or to an authority which extended over all. – Charles Hodge

76728. The right of the people to a substantive part in the government of the Church is recognized and sanctioned by the apostles in almost every conceivable way. – Charles Hodge

76729. Well, I know that I’ll never forget that, but also I won’t forget the hundreds of people who sent me letters, telegrams, and postcards during that World Series. There wasn’t a single nasty message. Everybody tried to say something nice. – Gil Hodges

76739. I work from a personal place, and the work has personal meaning for me. – Jim Hodges

76741. I was trying to write an autobiography using prints and patterns that reference emotional, psychological, and personal development in my work, as a person growing up, figuring out who I was. I used fabrics to stand in for occurrences. – Jim Hodges

76742. I was feeling a strong need to change, grow, and break with particular things that were going on in my life and my history, and the material was the perfect answer for that. – Jim Hodges

76743. Color is an intense experience on its own. – Jim Hodges

76744. Often, I work out of my work. One work takes me to the next thing. – Jim Hodges

76745. I think young people have a wonderful reaction to color because it’s not screwed up by too many references. – Jim Hodges

76746. But most people don’t come up to me and express a lot of emotion. – Jim Hodges

76748. Color is for me the purest form of expression, the purest abstract reality. – Jim Hodges

76749. For a while, I thought a lot about lineage. Where do I belong? Who am I standing next to? – Jim Hodges

76750. However, some of my work is very subtle, and one should expect very subtle reactions to it. – Jim Hodges

76751. I move very slowly. It’s usually material first. I sit with the material for a long time. – Jim Hodges

76752. I think that some works are more accessible than others. – Jim Hodges

76753. If ignorance paid dividends, most Americans could make a fortune out of what they don’t know about economics. – Luther H. Hodges

76755. Matisse was very clear about saying that you have to blow your own trumpet and explain yourself, which I think has been slightly forgotten. – Howard Hodgkin

76757. In England, it’s thought to be morally suspect to worry about what your surroundings look like. – Howard Hodgkin

76764. I think words come between the spectator and the picture. – Howard Hodgkin

76767. I think that words are often extraneous to what I do. – Howard Hodgkin

76786. A lot of the shows that really become hit shows are often demonstrated, like Mystery Science Theater. – Joel Hodgson

76790. The first twenty shows at TV 23 were really a workshop. – Joel Hodgson

76791. Besides, it doesn’t make any sense to have these characters living in the year 3000 when all their points of reference are from the pop culture of the 80’s and the 90’s. – Joel Hodgson

76792. So the actual riffing came out of us just sitting there and doing it the way I think some people think we really did it, which is all spontaneously, and it really was. – Joel Hodgson

76793. Mystery Science Theater is really a postmodern show, it’s really derived of many influences. – Joel Hodgson

76795. Gypsy was the name my brother gave a pet turtle he had. I always thought it was so peculiar. – Joel Hodgson
