80477. We believe democracy to be the only real guarantor of stability and we have sought to create a ‘Jordanian model’ that might also inspire others in our region. I wish democracy and peace to be my legacy to my people and the shield of generations to come. – King Hussein I

80478. I am totally against the idea that a Muslim woman should not have the same opportunities as a Muslim man to learn, to open up, to work, help shape the future. To close Islam down to a sexist approach is totally intolerable and ridiculous. It’s not Islam. – King Hussein I

80483. Let me say this loud and clear. There is a world of difference between terrorist acts and the Islamic Shari’a. Islam is not only a religion, but a way of life. And at its heart lie the sacred principles of tolerance and dialogue. – King Hussein I

80484. Nothing is more useless in developing a nation’s economy than a gun, and nothing blocks the road to social development more than the financial burden of war. War is the arch enemy of national progress and the modern scourge of civilized men. – King Hussein I

80619. We are a step closer to it now – the doomsday scenario. – Tim Hutchinson

80620. The important thing is that we recognize our President’s leadership, that he is not saying: I am going to walk away from this. He is saying: I am going to do the right thing. – Kay Bailey Hutchison

80621. We are battling fanatics who kidnap and behead civilians and shoot fleeing children in the back. There can be no dialogue with such people, and the American people understand this. – Kay Bailey Hutchison

80634. What more can we require? Nothing but time. – James Hutton

80635. We must seek to persuade member states and institutions that better regulation in Europe does not mean cutting health and safety in the workplace, nor does it mean dismantling social standards. – John Hutton

80643. For many Europeans the next decade looks to be filled with threats rather than opportunities. – John Hutton

80644. But we need to show that the EU can modernise itself, can adapt to the needs of its citizens, can take their views into account. That will be our ambition for the UK Presidency. – John Hutton

80645. But we can turn challenges into opportunities if we look outwards to the realities of the global economy and modernise our internal institutions in ways that will equip Europe to meet that challenge and create confidence amongst the public. – John Hutton

80646. But let no one be under any doubt that the scale of the challenge that Europe faces in this emerging global economy is immense and the practical pace of our collective action to meet these challenge to date has just been too slow. – John Hutton

80647. But effective regulation at the European Union level can make a massive contribution to achieving our shared goals of improving competitiveness, jobs and growth. – John Hutton

80648. At the heart of these challenges lies the question of how the institutions of the European Union make laws, the types of laws they pass and the effectiveness with which those laws are implemented on civil society and the economy. – John Hutton

80649. Yet in order to make sure the European social model keeps up with the pace of economic change that is now necessary, the EU must embrace a new approach to lawmaking. – John Hutton

80653. Our objective must therefore be to ensure EU better regulation contributes towards delivering a modern European Union which relentlessly focuses on building a dynamic and innovative economy equipped to meet the challenges of the 21st century. – John Hutton

80654. Primary care must never be seen simply as a set of organisational structures. – John Hutton

80655. Road testing the effects of regulation on European business must become second nature to the European Union. – John Hutton

80657. Greater personal choice, individually tailored services, stronger local accountability, greater efficiency – these are all central to the new direction of travel we have set for our public services. – John Hutton

80658. Some people argue that we should limit choice in favour of good local services. My response is simple: why should we assume those two concepts are mutually exclusive? – John Hutton

80659. The challenge to our national economies and the collective economy of Europe will become – with the growth of China and the continuing productivity growth of the US – even more intense in the decades to come. – John Hutton

80660. The Civil Service is a vital economic asset to the UK – firstly, in the way it creates a framework for excellence in service delivery and secondly, in how it helps organise the best way to deliver modern public services on which both businesses and individuals depend. – John Hutton

80661. There is no such thing as free regulation. – John Hutton

80662. This call for a new culture is not a new idea. – John Hutton

80681. Lord knows, I never want to waste any more of my time in mirrors. – Lauren Hutton

80682. No one’s raising children any more. To love a child, you’ve got to work for it. You have to change its diapers and feed it at night! – Lauren Hutton

80683. That’s the mistake women make – you shouldn’t see your makeup. We don’t want to look like we’ve made an effort. – Lauren Hutton

80684. The last thing we need is yet another makeup company. Even I have a nervous breakdown when I go through the department store makeup floor. – Lauren Hutton

80685. I’d like to be the first model who becomes a woman. – Lauren Hutton

80686. I had 30-something years’ experience in modeling, which is rare. – Lauren Hutton

80687. We have to be able to grow up. Our wrinkles are our medals of the passage of life. They are what we have been through and who we want to be. – Lauren Hutton

80688. I saw a guy being really abusive to his girlfriend. She was asking people to help, but no one would. When he grabbed her, I tried to separate them, but he turned on me. I punched him and knocked him down. It wasn’t a scandal; I was just doing what anybody should. – Timothy Hutton

80689. Here’s one thing I can’t understand: people who are friends with their exes. – Timothy Hutton

80695. Idealism is the noble toga that political gentlemen drape over their will to power. – Aldous Huxley

80696. One of the great attractions of patriotism – it fulfills our worst wishes. In the person of our nation we are able, vicariously, to bully and cheat. Bully and cheat, what’s more, with a feeling that we are profoundly virtuous. – Aldous Huxley

80697. That men do not learn very much from the lessons of history is the most important of all the lessons of history. – Aldous Huxley

80709. It’s with bad sentiments that one makes good novels. – Aldous Huxley
