82806. I remember walking the dog one day, I saw a car full of teenage girls, and one of them rolled down the window and yelled, ‘Marc Jacobs!’ in a French accent. – Marc Jacobs

82807. I love to take things that are everyday and comforting and make them into the most luxurious things in the world. – Marc Jacobs

82808. I like spending time at home. In Paris, people drop by and have a bite to eat, or they drop by and watch Friends on TV. I take my dog to the office there, and I walk to work sometimes. – Marc Jacobs

82809. I don’t think, ‘Gee, I’d like to dress this person.’ There was a picture in Us magazine. It was a jersey dress, and Courtney Love was wearing it. I have this thing about Courtney Love, this funny worship. – Marc Jacobs

82810. I always find it kind of embarrassing, kind of funny, and kind of exciting. In New York I’m recognized a lot, although nobody says anything. You know, they stare at you just a second too long. But in Paris it’s not as commonplace to be recognized. – Marc Jacobs

82811. I’d like to believe that the women who wear my clothes are not dressing for other people, that they’re wearing what they like and what suits them. It’s not a status thing. – Marc Jacobs

82812. I wouldn’t know how to find eBay on the computer if my life depended on it. – Marc Jacobs

82813. You will soon find that I am a bit obsessive about my work. And that is a little sad, one often feels strangely restricted, not finding time to simmer, although one actually has many interests. – Arne Jacobsen

82814. Now, the downside to conservation is that so much is done for the public, which almost always mars the environment that one wanted to conserve. – Arne Jacobsen

82815. On the other hand, I don’t understand the enthusiasm for everything in the antique shop that Grandma threw out. There, the sense of quality has declined; otherwise Grandma wouldn’t have thrown it out. – Arne Jacobsen

82816. People buy a chair, and they don’t really care who designed it. – Arne Jacobsen

82817. Proportions are what makes the old Greek temples classic in their beauty. They are like huge blocks, from which the air has been literally hewn out between the columns. – Arne Jacobsen

82818. That business of relaxation, which is so terribly modern today, is all good and well, but my work interests me so much, and is so varied, that many times it seems relaxing when I go from one aspect to another. – Arne Jacobsen

82819. That is the artistic task: To choose the best from these solutions. – Arne Jacobsen

82820. The primary factor is proportions. – Arne Jacobsen

82821. There is always a point when one senses one’s lack of skill, the doubt. – Arne Jacobsen

82822. With a painter or a sculptor, one cannot begin to alter his works, but an architect has to put up with anything, because he makes utility objects – the building is there to be used, and times change. – Arne Jacobsen

82823. In addressing a task, one almost always has several possible options, sometimes only a few, and they may all be practical and functional. But they lack the aesthetic aspect that raises it to architecture. – Arne Jacobsen

82824. I don’t see that any buildings should be excluded from the term architecture, as long as they are done properly. – Arne Jacobsen

82825. When I travel, I draw and paint sketches which is great fun. And as long as you are fully aware that it has nothing to do with actual art, I think that’s all right. – Arne Jacobsen

82826. Carrying out the thing, getting it to the point when one might say: There, now it is good – that point is hard to reach. Often, one sets very high goals for oneself. Perhaps too high. – Arne Jacobsen

82827. In a way, the sense of quality has improved, the status symbol of the small things is gone, and it is acceptable to use stainless steel, even if the neighbour uses silver. – Arne Jacobsen

82828. And when an architect has designed a house with large windows, which is a necessity today in order to pull the daylight into these very deep houses, then curtains come to play a big role in architecture. – Arne Jacobsen

82829. Architecture tends to consume everything else, it has become one’s entire life. – Arne Jacobsen

82830. But inspiration? – That’s when you come home from abroad and are asked: Well, have you found inspiration? – and fortunately you haven’t. But the impressions sink in, of course, and may emerge later: None of us has invented the house; that was done many thousands of years ago. – Arne Jacobsen

82831. Furniture manufacturing in plastics requires very costly machinery, which the Danish market is not big enough to justify. Or so they say. But show me a plastics manufacturer who dares to take on the experiment. – Arne Jacobsen

82832. I am going to be working on bathroom fittings for a company in the USA, and then I thought it was appropriate to simplify the fittings and, thus, lowering the cost. – Arne Jacobsen

82833. I do not feel certain until I have confronted my initial solution with other solutions – although in fact the first solution often proves to be the right one. – Arne Jacobsen

82834. If a building becomes architecture, then it is art. – Arne Jacobsen

82835. I have no philosophy, my favourite thing is sitting in the studio. – Arne Jacobsen

82836. Almost every time I make a building, some people will condemn it straight to Hell. – Arne Jacobsen

82837. If architecture had nothing to do with art, it would be astonishingly easy to build houses, but the architect’s task – his most difficult task – is always that of selecting. – Arne Jacobsen

82838. Besides, I think that when one has been through a boarding school, especially then, you have some resistance, because it was both fine comradeship and a fairly hard training. – Arne Jacobsen

82839. It is our art that has an opportunity to leave a footprint in the sand. They don’t wrap fish in our work. – Hugh Newell Jacobsen

82840. The permanent power brokers of this city are the columnists. – Hugh Newell Jacobsen

82844. Whales only get harpooned when they come to the surface, and turtles can only move forward when they stick their neck out, but investors face risk no matter what they do. – Charles A. Jaffe

82845. It’s not your salary that makes you rich, it’s your spending habits. – Charles A. Jaffe

82847. A blond in a red dress can do without introductions – but not without a bodyguard. – Rona Jaffe

82848. I wanted to have a political career. I thought studying political science would be the best way to achieve it. – Bianca Jagger

82849. I don’t believe in lobbying only progressives and liberal members of Congress. I don’t believe in doing interviews only with those who share my views. I want to reach a wider audience. – Bianca Jagger

82850. I don’t think there was really a time when I have not been politically aware. – Bianca Jagger

82851. I feel great identification with the developing world. – Bianca Jagger

82852. I find it disturbing that the media keeps referring to my marriage, since I got divorced in 1979. But the media never wants to let me forget. – Bianca Jagger

82853. I have always been willing to admit when I made a mistake. I made a mistake in my understanding of the composition of the Contras, not on my opposition to the Contra war. – Bianca Jagger

82854. I often traveled to Nicaragua to speak against repressive policies by the Sandinista government. – Bianca Jagger

82855. I think the difference between El Salvador and Nicaragua is that in Nicaragua you had a popular insurrection, and in El Salvador you had a revolution. – Bianca Jagger

82856. I didn’t want to be discriminated against because of my gender and status. I promised myself I was never going to be treated as a second-class citizen. – Bianca Jagger

82857. I’ve enjoyed doing Wolf Blitzer’s program, and I even enjoyed having a heated debate with Bill O’Reilly. I will do it any time. – Bianca Jagger

82858. In Nicaragua, liberty, equality and the rule of law were the stuff of dreams. But in Paris I discovered the value of those words. – Bianca Jagger

82859. Look at what President Kennedy managed to achieve during the Cuban missile crisis. If Bush had been president in 1962, do you think he would have avoided a nuclear war? – Bianca Jagger

82860. Live interviews are more difficult to distort. – Bianca Jagger

82861. I think for the U.S. government the Sandinistas represented a threat to their dominance of Latin America. – Bianca Jagger

82862. George W. Bush and his administration embarked on a full-scale assault on civil liberties, human rights and the rule of law, walking away from his international obligations, tearing up international treaties, protocols and UN conventions. – Bianca Jagger

82863. I believe the only time when we can call for intervention is when there is an ongoing genocide. – Bianca Jagger

82864. Most governments in Latin America have failed to recognize the rights of indigenous people and their right to their own traditional territories. – Bianca Jagger

82865. Americans need to understand the significance of having their civil liberties dismantled. It doesn’t just affect terrorists and foreigners, it affects us all. – Bianca Jagger

82866. A man who gets divorced is not forever going to be talked about for it. There are very different standards that we have for women than we have for men. – Bianca Jagger

82867. Bush and Blair combined their efforts to deceive both nations in a carefully coordinated manner, more so than anyone is willing to point out in the media. – Bianca Jagger

82868. Gandhi became my role model. I have always been interested in Eastern philosophy. Since early in my life I’ve been fascinated by India, and I have spent a great deal of time traveling in that country. – Bianca Jagger

82869. George W. Bush and Tony Blair had to convince the world that Saddam Hussein represented an imminent threat. Tony Blair lied when he claimed that Iraq could launch a chemical or biological attack within 45 minutes. – Bianca Jagger

82870. George W. Bush will have to come to the UN and admit that he was wrong. – Bianca Jagger

82871. Governments are mandated by international law to protect people from genocide. – Bianca Jagger

82872. Howard Dean has been successful because he was clear in his opposition to the war. People appreciate a politician with the courage to say, I oppose this war. – Bianca Jagger

82873. I am closer to a European viewpoint of the world than an American one. My ethics and ideals are based on European concepts. – Bianca Jagger

82874. I am not just a celebrity, I’m a human-rights advocate for the last 20 years. – Bianca Jagger

82875. I am still profoundly troubled by the war in Nicaragua. The United States launched a covert war against another nation in violation of international law, a war that was wrong and immoral. – Bianca Jagger

82876. I believe President Bush is one of the most dangerous leaders in the world. He is not in search of peaceful and diplomatic solutions. – Bianca Jagger

82877. During the first 10 years of my life, while my parents were married, I enjoyed a privileged upbringing. After their divorce, my life was difficult. – Bianca Jagger

82878. The Sandinista revolution was without any question a popular insurrection. – Bianca Jagger

82879. The U.S. embargo imposed on Nicaragua, rather than weakening the Sandinistas, actually maintained them in power. – Bianca Jagger

82880. Those who suffer are not those at the top, but are the less privileged members of society. – Bianca Jagger

82881. There is a question for which we will never know the answer: had the U.S. not launched the Contra war to overthrow the Sandinista government, would they have succeeded in bringing socioeconomic justice to the people of Nicaragua? – Bianca Jagger

82882. Tony Blair has turned his back on the principles he claimed he believed in before he stood shoulder-to-shoulder with George W. Bush. He was an entirely different kind of leader. – Bianca Jagger

82883. Today, we talk a lot about terrorism, but we rarely talk about state terrorism. – Bianca Jagger

82884. The Sandinista government became consumed with fighting a war of survival. They were up against the biggest superpower in the world. – Bianca Jagger

82885. The mere fact of an American being present could help save the lives of innocent people. That’s why I believe in the importance of bearing witness, to become a voice for the voiceless. – Bianca Jagger

82887. The death penalty is being applied in the United States as a fatal lottery. – Bianca Jagger

82888. The British Red Cross asked me to help them spearhead a fundraising campaign for the victims of the war in Nicaragua. It was a turning point in my life. It began my commitment to justice and human rights issues. – Bianca Jagger

82889. President Bush should be indicted and should be driven out of office. He should be sent back home in Texas. – Bianca Jagger

82890. People in the U.K. cannot understand whether Blair has lost his mind or whether his ambition to be the second-most-powerful man in the world made him lose his mind. – Bianca Jagger

82891. People in so many countries look up to the United States as a model of democracy, but I doubt if that can continue. It leaves me with a great sense of loss. – Bianca Jagger

82892. We are not supposed to go out and kill all those we suspect to have committed a crime. – Bianca Jagger

82893. Saddam Hussein has been brutal against his people, but when he was committing those crimes, the international community did not come to the rescue of the Iraqis. – Bianca Jagger

82894. People think they know you. They know the things about you that you have forgotten. – Mick Jagger

82897. The Spice Girl Victoria Beckham has just published the story of her life. I confess that it is not in my reading table. – Mick Jagger

82898. The new fashion is to talk about the most private parts of your life; other fashion is to repent of your excesses and to criticize the drugs that made you happy in the other times. – Mick Jagger

82899. Thank you for leaving us alone but giving us enough attention to boost our egos. – Mick Jagger

82900. The elusive nature of love… it can be such a fleeting thing. You see it there and it’s just fluttering and it’s gone. – Mick Jagger

82903. I have never wanted to give up performing on stage, but one day the tours will be over. – Mick Jagger

82904. I haven’t had the time to plan returning to the scene because I haven’t left it. – Mick Jagger

82905. I must be careful not to get trapped in the past. That’s why I tend to forget my songs. – Mick Jagger

82907. I came into music just because I wanted the bread. It’s true. I looked around and this seemed like the only way I was going to get the kind of bread I wanted. – Mick Jagger

82918. People get very thoughtful when they are in cars. I no longer care for cars. I don’t collect them. – Mick Jagger

82919. A lot of times songs are very much of a moment, that you just encapsulate. They come to you, you write them, you feel good that day, or bad that day. – Mick Jagger

82920. People have this obsession. They want you to be like you were in 1969. They want you to, because otherwise their youth goes with you. It’s very selfish, but it’s understandable. – Mick Jagger

82922. I don’t really care how we done it, we done it. – Jaromir Jagr

82925. Higher ceilings allow the use indirect lighting, which is much healthier and reduces glare. – Helmut Jahn

82926. In Europe, they’re more demanding, the ones that rent the build ings. – Helmut Jahn

82927. In Europe, architects consider themselves artists. They think they’re special when they win a competition. – Helmut Jahn

82928. I’ve never looked at a suburban building as being a minor building and an urban building as being a major building. – Helmut Jahn

82929. I wanted to improve the suburban office building; to create a great urban space in a suburban environment with all that implies about interaction, collaboration and creativity. – Helmut Jahn

82930. I think the younger generation, the people poised to dominate the workforce, are more socially conscious. They are more demanding in terms of environment and how that environment contributes to their life. – Helmut Jahn

82931. Creativity has more to do with the elimination of the inessential than with inventing something new. – Helmut Jahn

82932. I strive for an architecture from which nothing can be taken away. – Helmut Jahn

82933. It’s my goal to make a building as immaterial as possible. Architecture is a very material thing. It takes a lot of resources, so why not eliminate what you don’t need as long as you’re able to achieve the same result? – Helmut Jahn

82934. For me, though, the fun is over when I get the job. – Helmut Jahn

82935. Critics are entitled to have an opinion, but how can they judge how comfortable a building is? No critic is smart enough to judge how a building will perform over time. – Helmut Jahn

82936. Chinese buildings are like American buildings, with big footprints. People don’t care about daylight or fresh air. – Helmut Jahn

82937. America has always imported history. – Helmut Jahn

82938. A good engineer thinks in reverse and asks himself about the stylistic consequences of the components and systems he proposes. – Helmut Jahn

82939. A city building, you experience when you walk; a suburban building, you experience when you drive. – Helmut Jahn

82940. A building is hard to judge. It takes many years to find out whether it works. It’s not as simple as asking the people in the office whether they like it. – Helmut Jahn

82941. Every building is a prototype. No two are alike. – Helmut Jahn

82942. German and English firms operate internationally, while French firms do not. The only place where they all have work is in China. Anybody can sell himself in China! – Helmut Jahn

82943. You don’t know what the Chinese expect in the way of beauty. The presentation is just a farce. You come into a room filled with 50 people and they don’t talk to you. There’s very little interaction. – Helmut Jahn

82944. The American attitude towards efficiency and execution should always underlie architecture. – Helmut Jahn

82945. Sometimes I have to accept a job I don’t really want. Hardly anybody comes up to you with a commission; it’s all competitions these days. – Helmut Jahn

82946. Most architects say: I want to use this type of glass, even if it’s too reflective or doesn’t let enough light in. However, the use of a certain type of glass might change the comfort level. – Helmut Jahn

82947. The architecture profession has lost a lot of its integrity, especially in the USA. The general architect here has no scruples, no ambitions. – Helmut Jahn

82948. You’d never think of taking a cab if you had to walk a mile down Chicago’s Michigan Avenue. But in a bad city you take a cab just to go around the corner. – Helmut Jahn

82949. When I think of some of my earlier work, it really seems a fortunate coincidence that I succeeded. – Helmut Jahn

82950. When I came to America in the ’60s, it was the place to be. I wonder if I’d come here today. – Helmut Jahn

82951. We are creating a unique experience. It’s starts with how you see the building from a distance. – Helmut Jahn

82952. We want our buildings to work like a machine that will create a pleasurable environment. – Helmut Jahn

82953. Transparency is not the same as looking straight through a building: it’s not just a physical idea, it’s also an intellectual one. – Helmut Jahn

82954. We prefer synthetic rather than natural materials. Natural products are almost too valuable. Wood is much harder to produce than metal. And metal is recyclable, while wood isn’t. – Helmut Jahn

82955. If cooking becomes an art form rather than a means of providing a reasonable diet, then something is clearly wrong. – Tom Jaine

82956. The first treasure California began to surrender after the Gold Rush as the oldest: her land. – John Jakes

82957. The house burned an hour before midnight on the last day of April. The wild, distant ringing of the fire bells woke George Hazard. He stumbled through the dark hallway, then upstairs to the mansion tower, and stepped outside into the narrow balcony. – John Jakes

82958. No writer should minimize the factor that affects everyone, but is beyond control: luck. – John Jakes

82960. The pain comes from knowing that we have never been safe, and therefore will never be safe again. It comes from knowing we can never be so ignorant again. It comes from knowing we can never be children again. Losing innocence. Remembering heaven. That was the essence of hell. – John Jakes

82961. Semantics, or the study of meaning, remained undeveloped, while phonetics made rapid progress and even came to occupy the central place in the scientific study of language. – Roman Jakobson

82962. At first acoustics attributed to the different sounds only a limited number of characteristic features. – Roman Jakobson

82963. When I speak it is in order to be heard. – Roman Jakobson

82964. The task is to investigate speech sounds in relation to the meanings with which they are invested, i.e., sounds viewed as signifiers, and above all to throw light on the structure of the relation between sounds and meaning. – Roman Jakobson

82965. The search for the symbolic value of phonemes, each taken as a whole, runs the risk of giving rise to ambiguous and trivial interpretations because phonemes are complex entities, bundles of different distinctive features. – Roman Jakobson

82966. Speech sounds cannot be understood, delimited, classified and explained except in the light of the tasks which they perform in language. – Roman Jakobson

82967. Remember that the pharynx is at a crossroads from which leads off, at the top, the passage to the mouth cavity and the passage to the nasal cavity, and below, the passage to the larynx. – Roman Jakobson

82968. Of course, we have known for a long time that a word, like any verbal sign, is a unity of two components. – Roman Jakobson

82969. Now the identification of individual sounds by phonetic observation is an artificial way of proceeding. – Roman Jakobson

82970. Linguistic sounds, considered as external, physical phenomena have two aspects, the motor and the acoustic. – Roman Jakobson

82971. It is once again the vexing problem of identity within variety; without a solution to this disturbing problem there can be no system, no classification. – Roman Jakobson

82972. Instead of following one another the sounds overlap; a sound which is acoustically perceived as coming after another one can be articulated simultaneously with the latter or even in part before it. – Roman Jakobson

82973. Every linguistic sign is located on two axes: the axis of simultaneity and that of succession. – Roman Jakobson

82974. Acoustic phonetics, which is developing and increasing in richness very rapidly, already enables us to solve many of the mysteries of sound, mysteries which motor phonetics could not even begin to solve. – Roman Jakobson

82975. A new era in the physiological investigation of linguistic sounds was opened up by X-ray photography. – Roman Jakobson

82976. For example, the opposition between acute and grave phonemes has the capacity to suggest an image of bright and dark, of pointed and rounded, of thin and thick, of light and heavy, etc. – Roman Jakobson

82977. From a strictly articulatory point of view there is no succession of sounds. – Roman Jakobson

82978. In poetic language, in which the sign as such takes on an autonomous value, this sound symbolism becomes an actual factor and creates a sort of accompaniment to the signified. – Roman Jakobson

82979. Especially with the signing of riders with climbing abilities and the new arrival of Tyler Hamilton, who has the strength and ability to become a great leader for the big tours. All in all, I feel this is a very complete team. – Laurent Jalabert

82980. We certainly will prepare consciously and professionally, but still you cannot predict the future. – Laurent Jalabert

82981. Of course, if this season turns out to be terrible for me – if I get injured again and this prevents me from reaching a satisfying level, then I could change my decision again. But at this moment, it absolutely feels like the right thing for me to continue through 2003. – Laurent Jalabert

82982. It’s true that this year, following my accident in the pre-season, I kind of lost morale and I felt like quitting at the end of this year. But today I can say that I want to be a professional bike rider in the year 2003 as well. – Laurent Jalabert

82983. I never thought we’d catch him, and when I saw he was ready to drop I felt sorry for him. I wanted to show it’s not true I’m trying to win it all. My goal is the Tour of Spain. – Laurent Jalabert

82984. Also, for a team as strong as like ours, the Tour will always remain the biggest goal of the whole year, and personally I will certainly concentrate most of my energy on this race. – Laurent Jalabert

82985. I’m very aware that to reach the same level and have the same amount of success will be extremely difficult. – Laurent Jalabert

82986. Many fail to realize this great recording industry was built by so-called jazz artists. And at the other end of the spectrum, a base in European classical music as well. – Ahmad Jamal

82987. You’ve got a big, big problem if you get caught up in what people say. If you’re gonna live for what people say, you might as well lay down and forget it. Because it doesn’t work that way. – Ahmad Jamal

82988. The quickest way to become troubled is to be concerned with what people are gonna say about your life and your work. – Ahmad Jamal

82989. I would like to be a scholar in whatever I do, a scholar is never finished, he is always seeking and I am always seeking. – Ahmad Jamal

82990. My mum actually gave up work to look after my child, which is so touching. – Jamelia

82991. Touring and promoting and recording take a lot of time, it’s just getting the right balance that’s important. – Jamelia

82992. There never seems to be enough hours in the day. At the moment I have no time to make new music because I’ve been doing so much promotion for this new single. – Jamelia

82993. Obviously I wouldn’t be able to do it without the support of so many people. – Jamelia

82994. I really, really love being a mum and I absolutely love being a singer so I couldn’t be happier. – Jamelia

82995. You’ve got your Justins who have all the back flipping dancers and stuff, and then you’ve got Lemar, and he totally moves you without having to do all of that, and he’s gorgeous. – Jamelia

82996. My daughter is wonderful and incredibly well behaved. I am very lucky. She will always be my priority. – Jamelia

82997. Life is too short not to experiment. – Jamelia

82998. I used to be a window cleaner. I got fired because I sometimes liked to drink the soapy water. – Jamelia

82999. I couldn’t think of anything else I’d rather be doing. – Jamelia
