87360. What my political views or my constitutional views are just doesn’t matter. – Elena Kagan

87361. To have the opportunity to lead the Solicitor General’s office is the honor of a lifetime. As you know, this is an office with a long and rich tradition, not only of extraordinary legal skill but also of extraordinary professionalism and integrity. That is due, in large measure, to the people who have led it. – Elena Kagan

87362. It’s not that there are no masters, but that there are many. And the job of the solicitor general is to balance those masters and to accommodate them all, each in their proper places, wisely and well and in so doing to represent the people of the United States. – Elena Kagan

87370. I’ve led a school whose faculty and students examine and discuss and debate every aspect of our law and legal system. And what I’ve learned most is that no one has a monopoly on truth or wisdom. I’ve learned that we make progress by listening to each other, across every apparent political or ideological divide. – Elena Kagan

87371. In fact, corporate and union moneys go overwhelmingly to incumbents, so limiting that money, as Congress did in the campaign finance law, may be the single most self-denying thing that Congress has ever done. – Elena Kagan

87372. I do not espouse the unitarian position. President Clinton’s assertion of directive authority over administration, more than President Reagan’s assertion of a general supervisory authority, raises serious constitutional questions. – Elena Kagan

87373. I think most Americans believe that although it’s better not to use military force if you can avoid it, that the world simply doesn’t provide us the luxury of giving away military force as an important tool of foreign policy. – Robert Kagan

87374. Well, I think he’s right to notice that there is a difference in attitudes and even in the broadest sense of world view between Eastern Europe and Western Europe. Which is old and which is new is an interesting question, and I almost think that maybe he’s got it backwards. – Robert Kagan

87391. There is the illusion of the world and the reality of the Torah. – Meir Kahane

87392. It is incumbent upon us to understand our greatness and believe in it so that we do not cheapen and profane ourselves. – Meir Kahane

87393. If we ever hope to rid the world of the political AIDS of our time, terrorism, the rule must be clear: One does not deal with terrorists; one does not bargain with terrorists; one kills terrorists. – Meir Kahane

87394. I see all this and know that if we are to save the Jewish state and its three-and-a-half million Jews from terrible horrors, we must rise up and demand a fundamental change in the very system of government. – Meir Kahane

87395. I know that elections must be limited only to those who understand that the Arabs are the deadly enemy of the Jewish state, who would bring on us a slow Auschwitz – not with gas, but with knives and hatchets. – Meir Kahane

87396. Surely it is time for Jews, worried over the huge growth of Arabs in Israel, to consider finishing the exchange of populations that began 35 years ago. – Meir Kahane

87397. Jews have been in Egypt since Biblical times, and Alexandria had once been, at least partially, a Jewish city. – Meir Kahane

87400. Above all, it is not decency or goodness of gentleness that impresses the Middle East, but strength. – Meir Kahane

87401. Love has its place, as does hate. Peace has its place, as does war. Mercy has its place, as do cruelty and revenge. – Meir Kahane

87402. Never, ever deal with terrorists. Hunt them down and, more important, mercilessly punish those states and groups that fund, arm, support, or simply allow their territories to be used by the terrorists with impunity. – Meir Kahane

87403. No trait is more justified than revenge in the right time and place. – Meir Kahane

87404. One of the great problems with Americans is that – being a decent people – they assume that everyone else is equally decent. – Meir Kahane

87405. For so long as the Jew has even one ally, he will be convinced – in his smallness of mind – that his salvation came from that ally. It is only when he is alone – against all of his own efforts and frantic attempts – that he will, through no choice, be compelled to turn to G-d. – Meir Kahane

87406. The only thing I know is that I paint because I need to, and I paint whatever passes through my head without any other consideration. – Frida Kahlo

87841. I’ve always felt that if one was going to take seriously this vocation as an artist, you have to get beyond that decorative facade. – Anish Kapoor

87842. One of the great currents in the contemporary experience of art is that it seems to come out of the experience of the author. – Anish Kapoor

87843. If you get a bad review, you take that in your stride. – Anish Kapoor

87844. It’s the role of the artist to pursue content. – Anish Kapoor

87845. Maybe the way we have learned to look has changed in the last 25 years, and the exotic is much more acceptable. There are many artists now, younger artists, who work out of the exotic. – Anish Kapoor

87846. Much of what I make is geometric, and has a kind of almost mathematical logic to the form. – Anish Kapoor

87847. My first show sold within the first 3 minutes, and I came back to the studio and spent the next two and a half years making almost nothing. – Anish Kapoor

87848. My work is not about my life history. It’s not about the story of my neurosis. – Anish Kapoor

87849. One can hardly be Indian and not know that almost every accent, which hand you eat your food with, has some deeper symbolic truth, reality. – Anish Kapoor

87850. One cannot set out to make a work that’s spiritual. What is a contemporary iconography for the spiritual? Is it some fuzzy space? – Anish Kapoor

87851. One does afford oneself the luxury to come into the studio and all day, every day, spend one’s life making aesthetic propositions. What an immense luxury. – Anish Kapoor

87852. One does not set out with the idea that I’ve just had a great idea and now I’m going to go and carry it out. Almost all art that’s made like that doesn’t go anywhere. – Anish Kapoor

87853. I’ve nothing to say. – Anish Kapoor

87854. I think we brothers realised his loss more and more as we grew older. We actually grew closer after his death. – Raj Kapoor

87855. A woman always has her man, but the man unconsciously leans on his roots, his heritage. He feels like an orphan without his parents. – Raj Kapoor

87856. Once, he was chosen to play Ram in a small Ramleela company, but his parents were against it. – Raj Kapoor

87857. I’ve struggled a lot for what I have today. – Raj Kapoor

87858. We’ve already gotten a significant grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and a university consortium. I think the whole sector of Foundations, potentially with government support, is promising – more than promising, I think, it’s substantial. – Mitch Kapor

87859. The culmination of all of that was the decision to start a company, which became Lotus, to do a product, which became 1-2-3. By the time I reached that point it had been four years, and it felt like a lifetime, but really it was kind of evolutionary. – Mitch Kapor

87860. That’s why it has to be a nonprofit, because a nonprofit is required to take monies it receives and use them for the purposes for which it’s chartered by the government. It can’t be pocketed. – Mitch Kapor

87861. No, my family is Russian, Georgian, via Ellis Island. – Mitch Kapor

87862. I was trying to figure out what to do next, I’d been accumulating ideas for productivity tools – software people could use every day, particularly to help organize their lives. – Mitch Kapor

87863. I actually built a tiny computer as a junior high school project. – Mitch Kapor

87864. Well, I had a lot of help from my father with the soldering and so on, and he was very good at math and was fascinated with computers, and so I was fortunate enough to have a bunch of exposure going all the way back to high school – this was in the 1960s. – Mitch Kapor

87865. What is design? It’s where you stand with a foot in two worlds – the world of technology and the world of people and human purposes – and you try to bring the two together. – Mitchell Kapor

87866. Inside every working anarchy, there’s an Old Boy Network. – Mitchell Kapor

87867. Getting information off the Internet is like taking a drink from a fire hydrant. – Mitchell Kapor

87868. Architecture is politics. – Mitchell Kapor

87869. It doesn’t matter how adventurous you want to be, you’ve still got to contain your identity. – Alex Kapranos

87870. I want to make music that will make the blood surge in your veins, music that will get people up and dance. – Alex Kapranos

87871. Maybe ‘Can’t Stop Feeling’ and ‘Turn It On’ we’ll just release as singles. It’s a thing The Beatles used to do which I really loved, the idea of releasing something as a single completely on its own. – Alex Kapranos

87872. People are rapidly losing hope and trust. They believe their government has been captured by special interests and no longer cares about them, and they are right. – Marcy Kaptur

87873. Without a doubt, first thing we should do is clean up our fiscal house, and that starts with balancing our budgets and digging out of this red ink. We cannot expect to continue in this fashion and remain the leader of the free world. – Marcy Kaptur

87874. Who owns the assets of our Nation? Increasingly, foreign interests own our assets, and we owe them money. No wonder people think our country is headed in the wrong direction. It is. – Marcy Kaptur

87875. We have seen voters denied their rights in recent elections as they have been incorrectly purged from lists, their absentee votes not counted, and voting machine integrity and security not assured. – Marcy Kaptur

87876. We came from a family where we ran our own small business. Our dad made his own products. We made our own sausages, our own meatloafs, our own pickles. Dad had to do everything himself. He had to figure out how to finance his business. – Marcy Kaptur

87877. These Americans are among the working poor with full-time jobs earning $5.15 an hour. Millions fall into this boat, even more when you consider that the poverty line has not been adequately adjusted to reflect the true level of poverty in this country. – Marcy Kaptur

87878. That level of trade deficit throttles real growth in our country and continues the unfortunate path of selling out America. We are not winning the global trade war, we are losing it badly. – Marcy Kaptur

87879. Strong efforts have been made in Ohio to curb the authoritarianism of our Secretary of State, Kenneth Blackwell, as he has purged people from lists in our State in particular precincts where voters are heavily minority. – Marcy Kaptur

87880. People who go to work every day and perform the services essential to keeping our economy functioning deserve to live above the poverty level. – Marcy Kaptur

87881. Increasingly, Americans don’t own America. – Marcy Kaptur

87882. In fact, our monthly trade deficit figure is so huge it equals the entire annual budget of our Department of Veterans Affairs. Veterans fought to make us free from foreign tyranny, but the new tyranny is taking a different form. – Marcy Kaptur

87883. I grew up in a family where our mother made our clothing. We didn’t have a lot of money, so we learned how to scrimp, and we learned how to invent and to create. And those are learned skills. – Marcy Kaptur

87884. As I watch what is happening in the Middle East and the carnage that comes over our television screens every evening, I cannot help but ask myself, what is wrong with humankind that we cannot stop the killing? – Marcy Kaptur

87885. America is becoming more and more dependent upon imports from foreign manufacturers than we are exports from our country in all fields: in appliances, in clothing, even food. This year America may become for the first time in its history a net food importer. – Marcy Kaptur

87886. A market where chief executive officers make 262 times that of the average worker and 821 times that of the minimum-wage worker is not a market that is working well. And it is surely not working well enough to build a solid middle class. – Marcy Kaptur

87887. Since President Bush took office, we have lost 3 million more good jobs. – Marcy Kaptur

87888. This is the most intimate relationship between literature and its readers: they treat the text as a part of themselves, as a possession. – Ryszard Kapuscinski

87889. Underground literature only began in the ’70s, when technical developments made it possible. Before that, we were involved in a game with the censors. That was our struggle. – Ryszard Kapuscinski

87890. Most correspondents came from the former colonial powers – there were British, French, and a lot of Italians, because there were a lot of Italian communities there. And of course there were a lot of Russians. – Ryszard Kapuscinski

87891. There is a lack of critical assessment of the past. But you have to understand that the current ruling elite is actually the old ruling elite. So they are incapable of a self-critical approach to the past. – Ryszard Kapuscinski

87892. There is a fundamental difference between the Polish experience of the state and the Russian experience. In the Polish experience, the state was always a foreign power. So, to hate the state was a patriotic act. – Ryszard Kapuscinski

87893. In order to feel contempt, you generally need to cherish some kind of feelings. – Ryszard Kapuscinski

87894. In the First World War, there was the sudden passion of nationalism, and the killing took place because of these emotions. But the Soviet case is different, because you had systematic murder, like the Holocaust. – Ryszard Kapuscinski

87895. In the Russian experience, although the Russian state is oppressive, it is their state, it is part of their fabric, and so the relation between Russian citizens and their state is complicated. – Ryszard Kapuscinski

87896. Money changes all the iron rules into rubber bands. – Ryszard Kapuscinski

87897. We have such a mixture now, such a fusion of different genres. – Ryszard Kapuscinski

87898. The official independence celebration was going to be held over four or five days, and a group of journalists from all over the world was allowed to fly in, because Angola was closed otherwise. – Ryszard Kapuscinski

87899. My writing is a combination of three elements. The first is travel: not travel like a tourist, but travel as exploration. The second is reading literature on the subject. The third is reflection. – Ryszard Kapuscinski

87900. The tradition of Russian literature is also an eastern tradition of learning poetry and prose by heart. – Ryszard Kapuscinski

87901. The extent of one man’s guilt may be defined by how much of it is experienced by the party he injured. – Ryszard Kapuscinski

87902. The Cold War was waged in a particularly brutal and cynical way in Africa, and Africa seemed powerless to do anything to stop it. – Ryszard Kapuscinski

87903. The Cold War in Africa is one of the darkest, most disgraceful pages in contemporary history, and everybody ought to be ashamed. – Ryszard Kapuscinski

87904. Readership was high, and very attentive. It was people’s only source of knowledge about the world. – Ryszard Kapuscinski

87905. People were really interested in what was going on because of the international context of the Cold War. – Ryszard Kapuscinski

87906. Our salvation is in striving to achieve what we know we’ll never achieve. – Ryszard Kapuscinski

87907. There are several reasons why Russians view the oppressive state positively. First, in the Russian Orthodox religion, there is an understanding of authority as something sent by God. – Ryszard Kapuscinski

87908. When man meets an obstacle he can’t destroy, he destroys himself. – Ryszard Kapuscinski

87909. I’m trying to put more elements of the essay into my writing. – Ryszard Kapuscinski

87910. When is a crisis reached? When questions arise that can’t be answered. – Ryszard Kapuscinski

87911. In modern Russia, you have no official, formal assessment of this past. Nobody in any Russian document has said that the policy of the Soviet government was criminal, that it was terrible. No one has ever said this. – Ryszard Kapuscinski

87912. Amin hid nothing. Everybody knew everything. Yet the American Senate only introduced a resolution breaking off trade with Amin three months before his overthrow. – Ryszard Kapuscinski

87913. Conditions were so hard. To send the news out, telex was the only means, but telex was very rare in Africa. So if somebody was flying to Europe, we gave him correspondence to send after he arrived. – Ryszard Kapuscinski

87914. Be careful: they have arms, and no alternatives. – Ryszard Kapuscinski

87915. Amin managed to invite both the US and Soviet ambassadors to his palace at the very same time and then deliberately kept them together in his waiting room. – Ryszard Kapuscinski

87916. Amin knew that neither West nor East would criticize him for fear that he would support the other side. He felt he was untouchable and he said so openly. – Ryszard Kapuscinski

87917. Amin is the shame of the whole world. The fact that he managed to rule so long and commit so many crimes was only possible thanks to the hypocrisy of the East and the West who were waging the Cold War for world domination. – Ryszard Kapuscinski

87918. I’ll tell you what colonial experience is. – Ryszard Kapuscinski

87919. He killed his enemies because he was afraid they would kill him. Amin ordered entire tribes to be put to death, because he feared they would rebel. – Ryszard Kapuscinski

87920. I remember that during the period leading up to independence in Angola in 1975, I was the only correspondent there at all for three months. – Ryszard Kapuscinski

87921. I remember in 1978 meeting two Ugandan captains in the hotel talking Russian. They had been educated in Moscow and since they came from different Ugandan peoples, it was the only way they could understand one another. – Ryszard Kapuscinski

87922. Do not be misled by the fact that you are at liberty and relatively free; that for the moment you are not under lock and key: you have simply been granted a reprieve. – Ryszard Kapuscinski

87923. People who decide they came to earth to work, who make work their personal philosophy, are kept very busy. – Constantine Karamanlis

87924. You do what you have to do in life, when you form a philosophy that you can’t talk yourself out of. – Constantine Karamanlis

87925. We are given to the cult of personality; when things go badly we look to some messiah to save us. If by chance we think we have found one, it will not be long before we destroy him. – Constantine Karamanlis

87926. Delete the negative; accentuate the positive! – Donna Karan

87927. Everything I do is a matter of heart, body and soul. – Donna Karan

87928. We’ve come a long way. Power dressing now is designed to let the woman inside us come through. – Donna Karan

87929. It’s really easy to get colors right. It’s really hard to get black – and neutrals – right. Black is certainly a color but it’s also an illusion. – Donna Karan

87930. I love building spaces: architecture, furniture, all of it, probably more than fashion. The development procedure is more tactile. It’s about space and form and it’s something you can share with other people. – Donna Karan

87931. Design is a constant challenge to balance comfort with luxe, the practical with the desirable. – Donna Karan

87932. I feel very strongly about dresses on every level – a dress feels like underpinning. – Donna Karan

87933. Accent your positive and delete your negative. – Donna Karan

87934. Evening is a time of real experimentation. You never want to look the same way. – Donna Karan

87935. Everything in life… has to have balance. – Donna Karan

87938. We have developed overlays for the keys of the cash registers with the help of the Braille Institute, so that blind crew members can take orders and help our guests. – Carl Karcher

87939. And for a very special group of people, we’ve provided their only job. I’m speaking of course of the disabled. They have stated they don’t want a hand out just a hand. We are happy to give them one. – Carl Karcher

87940. I am happy to donate funds to various organizations that help people in need. – Carl Karcher

87941. I’ve often been asked to run for office. I have no desire to do that, I would not want my time with the family or the company restricted because of the demands of an elected position. – Carl Karcher

87942. In other restaurants you’ll see employees signing to each other, since we also hire many deaf men and women. – Carl Karcher

87943. We find that other employees are very enthusiastic about their fellow crew members who have disabilities-or what they previously thought of as disabilities. – Carl Karcher

87944. We have people working for us full-time because they were forced to retire at 65. I know that I never want to stop working, and I am glad that I can offer positions to others who feel the same way. – Carl Karcher

87945. Whenever you’re successful you owe that success to the people in the community, because they are the ones buying your product. – Carl Karcher

87946. It’s no secret that I’ve become known for my strong political views. – Carl Karcher

87947. In addition we also hire many senior citizens. – Carl Karcher

87948. I have to be in a relationship in order to be intimate. I’m not the one-night-stand kind of girl. Despite the rumors. – Kim Kardashian

87949. You make mistakes, but I don’t have any regrets. I’m the kind of person who takes responsibility for it and deals with it. I learn from everything I do. I work very hard, I have so many things going on in my life. Get to know me and see who I am. – Kim Kardashian

87950. White is actually one of my favorite colors. I have a white car. I love white. – Kim Kardashian

87951. The perfect date for me would be staying at home, making a big picnic in bed, eating Wotsits and cookies while watching cable TV. – Kim Kardashian

87952. I’m totally not against plastic surgery. I’ve tried Botox before. That’s the only thing that I’ve done. – Kim Kardashian

87953. I know people think we drive around in these nice cars and we do whatever we want and our parents will pay our credit cards, but that’s not the case. Sure, my parents were generous; I got a nice car at 16, but at 18 I was cut off. I’ve worked really hard. I opened the store myself. – Kim Kardashian

87954. I feel lazy when I’m not working. I learned all my business sense from my dad. He always believed in me, and I think the last thing he said to me before he passed away was, ‘I know you’re gonna be OK. I’m not worried about you’. – Kim Kardashian

87955. I don’t even drink! I can’t stand the taste of alcohol. Every New Year’s Eve I try one drink and every time it makes me feel sick. So I don’t touch booze – I’m always the designated driver. – Kim Kardashian

87956. I am Armenian, so of course I am obsessed with laser hair removal! Arms, bikini, legs, underarms… my entire body is hairless. – Kim Kardashian

87957. Holidays are the best. I couldn’t imagine being from a small family. – Kim Kardashian

87971. If you are charged with this responsibility of enhancing interrogations, or using soldiers to enhance interrogations to find Saddam, and you’re above the law for all practical purposes, you might try some unusual techniques. Now we know that, in fact, they did. – Janis Karpinski

87972. After they killed Uday and Qusay, the focus centered on Saddam: Find him, kill him, capture him, whatever it takes. To me, it was a false sense of security: If we get Saddam, we’re going to win this war. – Janis Karpinski

87973. And shortly after that, when I try to get access to those soldiers, to ask them what in the world was going on, I was told that they did not work for me and I had no right to have access to any one of them. – Janis Karpinski

87974. At that time, about July 5, we had no Iraqi corrections officers working for us. It was a responsibility of the CPA, with contractors, to set up a training program. – Janis Karpinski

87975. I had 16 other prisons that I needed to pay attention to, and we did. And I had 3,400 soldiers who were depending on me to take care of them, and I did. – Janis Karpinski

87976. I joined the 800th MP Brigade when they were already deployed. – Janis Karpinski

87977. I knew how many MPs I had assigned to the brigade, how many military prison operations I would be running, but we needed to evaluate how many criminal prison operations we could support. – Janis Karpinski

87978. I thought that that mission and the mission of taking care of those soldiers were my priorities, and I stand by the same today. There wasn’t a lot of support for those soldiers. – Janis Karpinski

87979. If they conducted a raid in this room, you’d all be policed up. They’d take all of you to Abu Ghraib and turn you over to the soldiers. Maybe there’s only one or two of you in this group who was a known associate or had any piece of information that they are trying to exploit. – Janis Karpinski

87980. The vast majority of prisoners at Abu Ghraib, even after interrogation, had no further intel value whatsoever. – Janis Karpinski

87986. That policy was abandoned very quickly, and the military police were tagged with the responsibility of conducting training, which they did. We were not equipped or set up with personnel to recruit new Iraqi guards. – Janis Karpinski

87989. The war was declared over – the end of major combat operations – in May 2003. Release procedures got under way immediately; reducing the population from 8,000 to just over 300, of course, requires fewer military police soldiers. – Janis Karpinski

87990. They transfer the prison, and all of a sudden all this money cuts loose, all these people cut loose. – Janis Karpinski
