88206. The international community is unwilling to accept the policies of the Iranian regime. – Moshe Katsav

88216. I have strong sentiments toward Iran, since I distinguish between the Iranian regime and the Iranian people. I highly esteem Iranian music and culture. – Moshe Katsav

88217. If Iran does not change its policies, it won’t be able to integrate into the international community and will become even more isolated than it is now, which likely will have a negative impact on the Iranian people. – Moshe Katsav

88218. In the past there were various suggestions in the framework of financial and other agreements to benefit with Iran. But Iran interpreted those suggestions in a mistaken way and deceived the international community. – Moshe Katsav

88219. Iran stands behind a substantial number of terrorist actions against us, together with Hizballah and the Islamic Jihad. It pretends to care for the Palestinians. – Moshe Katsav

88220. Fundamentalist governments and organizations endanger stability in the world. – Moshe Katsav

88221. It’s just a logical guess that they are very very wise to put someone from the old series in it, and if you had to choose, it would be a very difficult decision. – Andreas Katsulas

88222. So I think the fans will be totally interested in the new developments and delighted that the old developments are still there and that they can still see some of the old characters maybe reappear. – Andreas Katsulas

88223. Well, you know, what’s better? To play a character who stays stuck in the same baggage year after year, or to play a character who gets beyond that and goes to a new level? – Andreas Katsulas

88224. The fact that maybe I had some success playing G’Kar doesn’t guarantee me three years later that I can still do it, so I have to keep my senses alive and still be working on it. – Andreas Katsulas

88225. You’re only as good as you are now – not as good as you were before. – Andreas Katsulas

88226. It’s one of those things; you just get a very nice stroke from being included in the next thing. – Andreas Katsulas

88227. I don’t know how it would play out it the long run, if I were go to series with the story, I don’t know. I just miss Peter so much on a personal level, that’s about what I can say. He’s my buddy and I wish he were around. – Andreas Katsulas

88228. Not that I wouldn’t have been equally happy to see the old buddies and see it all start up again that way. But this was more of a work situation, and a very good one. – Andreas Katsulas

88229. Sheridan is still there, he’s the president of the Alliance, everything that was in place when the series is there is still there, we’re just moving the camera over a couple of light years. – Andreas Katsulas

88232. For as long as I care to remember, religion, like the striptease, has always been a display of the power of suggestion. Like the Virgin Birth, it has all too often supported an immaculate deception. – Bernard Katz

88297. This one, even though it called for San Francisco, I think they wanted to initially shoot part of the film up here, you know get the exteriors and then go back to L.A. We really fought to get it up here and I think Paramount was really pleased. – Philip Kaufman

88298. To me, thoughts are fun and art is fun. The strength of our society should not be idle entertainments but the joy of pursuing ideas. – Philip Kaufman

88299. What’s really interesting about that is that a lot of these words that were incendiary in their time now seem almost harmless and laughable, because they have this archaic quality. – Philip Kaufman

88300. Whatever you think of de Sade, he was a complex figure and we should not look for easy answers with him. He was, strangely perhaps, against the death penalty, and he was never put in prison for murders or anything like that. – Philip Kaufman

88301. The danger is not so much in the economic structure of a society but in its intellectual structure. – Philip Kaufman

88302. You can have a lot of unhappiness by not having money, but the reverse is no guarantee of happiness. – Philip Kaufman

88303. That’s a little homage in a way to that and also to create that sort of creepy atmosphere that Hitchcock did. Vertigo was one of his great movies that was shot right here in The City and it’s about a woman and the psychological twists and so forth. – Philip Kaufman

88304. Whereas European films have traditionally been able to go into adult relationships. I think there’s a huge audience in America for those kinds of films. – Philip Kaufman

88308. I read, therefore I’m interested in writers. – Philip Kaufman

88310. Is there something to be said for the writings of the Marquis? Is there something to be said for pornography? And is there something to be said against both? I hope our film is balanced and rich enough to encourage debate and discussion. – Philip Kaufman

88311. It just seemed to me to be a great story, set back in its time but something that seemed to have relevance for our time. Now that the film is coming out, it looks like we’re back in another time where repression of expression is all the rage. – Philip Kaufman

88312. Nowadays they either want to move the film to Canada or in some cases they go to Prague or Romania or they want to keep ’em down in L.A. – Philip Kaufman

88313. Similarly, the Marquis is presented in this film as someone who would disturb the status quo and therefore must be kept imprisoned. – Philip Kaufman

88314. The doctrine of original sin claims that all men sinned in Adam; but whether they did or whether it is merely a fact that all men sin does not basically affect the problem of suffering. – Walter Kaufmann

88315. The problem of suffering is: why is there the suffering we know? – Walter Kaufmann

88316. Thirdly, even if we assume that the world is governed by purpose, we need only add that this purpose – or, if there are several, at least one of them – is not especially intent on preventing suffering, whether it is indifferent to suffering or actually rejoices in it. – Walter Kaufmann

88317. When Hegel later became a man of influence’ he insisted that the Jews should be granted equal rights because civic rights belong to man because he is a man and not on account of his ethnic origins or his religion. – Walter Kaufmann

88318. The only theism worthy of our respect believes in God not because of the way the world is made but in spite of that. The only theism that is no less profound than the Buddha’s atheism is that represented in the Bible by Job and Jeremiah. – Walter Kaufmann

88319. The great artist is the man who most obviously succeeds in turning his pains to advantage, in letting suffering deepens his understanding and sensibility, in growing through his pains. – Walter Kaufmann

88320. The first function of a book review should be, I believe, to give some idea of the contents and character of the book. – Walter Kaufmann

88321. To try to fashion something from suffering, to relish our triumphs, and to endure defeats without resentment: all that is compatible with the faith of a heretic. – Walter Kaufmann

88322. Life ceases to be so oppressive: we are free to give our own lives meaning and purpose, free to redeem our suffering by making something of it. – Walter Kaufmann

88323. Job’s forthright indictment of the injustice of this world is surely right. The ways of the world are weird and much more unpredictable than either scientists or theologians generally make things look. – Walter Kaufmann

88324. It was also Hegel who established the view that the different philosophic systems that we find in history are to be comprehended in terms of development and that they are generally one-sided because they owe their origins to a reaction against what has gone before. – Walter Kaufmann

88325. It is widely assumed, contrary to fact, that theism necessarily involves the two assumptions which cannot be squared with the existence of so much suffering, and that therefore, per impossibile, they simply have to be squared with the existence of all this suffering, somehow. – Walter Kaufmann

88326. It does not follow that the meaning must be given from above; that life and suffering must come neatly labeled; that nothing is worth while if the world is not governed by a purpose. – Walter Kaufmann

88327. In all three cases, and for most human beings, the problem of suffering poses no difficult problem at all: one has a world picture in which suffering has its place, a world picture that takes suffering into account. – Walter Kaufmann

88328. Here an attempt is made to explain suffering: the outcaste of traditional Hinduism is held to deserve his fetched fate; it is a punishment for the wrongs he did in a previous life. – Walter Kaufmann

88329. Faith means intense, usually confident, belief that is not based on evidence sufficient to command assent from every reasonable person. – Walter Kaufmann

88330. Those who believe in God because their experience of life and the facts of nature prove his existence must have led sheltered lives and closed their hearts to the voice of their brothers’ blood. – Walter Kaufmann

88331. The deepest difference between religions is not that between polytheism and monotheism. – Walter Kaufmann

88343. Simple and to the point is always the best way to get your point across. – Guy Kawasaki

88345. Patience is the art of concealing your impatience. – Guy Kawasaki

88346. A good idea is about ten percent and implementation and hard work, and luck is 90 percent. – Guy Kawasaki

88348. Some people worry that artificial intelligence will make us feel inferior, but then, anybody in his right mind should have an inferiority complex every time he looks at a flower. – Alan Kay

88349. The best way to predict the future is to invent it. – Alan Kay

88352. People who are really serious about software should make their own hardware. – Alan Kay

88354. The result is – document destruction – we’re really not going to be able to prove beyond a truth the negatives and some of the positive conclusions that we’re going to come to. There will be always unresolved ambiguity here. – David Kay

88355. Let me begin by saying, we were almost all wrong, and I certainly include myself here. – David Kay

88356. This hearing came about very quickly. I do have a few preliminary comments, but I suspect you’re more interested in asking questions, and I’ll be happy to respond to those questions to the best of my ability. – David Kay

88357. I’ve seen looting around the world and thought I knew the best looters in the world. The Iraqis excel at that. – David Kay

88358. I would also point out that many governments that chose not to support this war – certainly, the French president, Jacques Chirac, as I recall in April of last year, referred to Iraq’s possession of WMD. – David Kay

88359. In my judgment, based on the work that has been done to this point of the Iraq Survey Group, and in fact, that I reported to you in October, Iraq was in clear violation of the terms of U.N.Resolution 1441. – David Kay

88360. Sen. Edward Kennedy knows very directly. Senator Kennedy and I talked on several occasions prior to the war that my view was that the best evidence that I had seen was that Iraq indeed had weapons of mass destruction. – David Kay

88361. The case of Iran, a nuclear program that the Iranians admit was 18 years on, that we underestimated. And, in fact, we didn’t discover it. It was discovered by a group of Iranian dissidents outside the country who pointed the international community at the location. – David Kay

88362. The fact that it wasn’t tells me that we’ve got a much more fundamental problem of understanding what went wrong, and we’ve got to figure out what was there. And that’s what I call fundamental fault analysis. – David Kay

88363. The Libyan program recently discovered was far more extensive than was assessed prior to that. – David Kay

88364. Fortunately, President Kennedy and Robert Kennedy disagreed with the estimate and chose a course of action less ambitious and aggressive than recommended by their advisers. – David Kay

88365. There’s a long record here of being wrong. There’s a good reason for it. There are probably multiple reasons. Certainly proliferation is a hard thing to track, particularly in countries that deny easy and free access and don’t have free and open societies. – David Kay

88366. I think the aim – and certainly the aim of what I’ve tried to do since leaving – is not political and certainly not a witch hunt at individuals. It’s to try to direct our attention at what I believe is a fundamental fault analysis that we must now examine. – David Kay

88367. The Germans certainly – the intelligence service believed that there were WMD. It turns out that we were all wrong, probably in my judgment, and that is most disturbing. – David Kay

88368. And never – not in a single case – was the explanation, ‘I was pressured to do this.’ The explanation was very often, ‘The limited data we had led one to reasonably conclude this. I now see that there’s another explanation for it.’ – David Kay

88369. I think that shows a level of maturity and understanding that I think bodes well for getting to the bottom of this. But it is really up to you and your staff, on behalf of the American people, to take on that challenge. – David Kay

88370. A great deal has been accomplished by the team, and I do think it important that it goes on and it is allowed to reach its full conclusion. In fact, I really believe it ought to be better resourced and totally focused on WMD; that that is important to do it. – David Kay

88371. I came not from within the administration, and it was clear and clear in our discussions and no one asked otherwise that I would lead this the way I thought best and I would speak the truth as we found it. – David Kay

88372. And like I say, I think we’ve got other cases other than Iraq. I do not think the problem of global proliferation of weapons technology of mass destruction is going to go away, and that’s why I think it is an urgent issue. – David Kay

88373. And you know, almost in a perverse way, I wish it had been undue influence because we know how to correct that. We get rid of the people who, in fact, were exercising that. – David Kay

88374. As leader of the effort of the Iraqi Survey Group, I spent most of my days not out in the field leading inspections. It’s typically what you do at that level. I was trying to motivate, direct, find strategies. – David Kay

88375. Both of us are known for probably at times regrettable streak of independence. – David Kay

88376. But I do think the survey group – and I think Charlie Duelfer is a great leader. I have the utmost confidence in Charles. I think you will get as full an answer as you can possibly get. – David Kay

88377. But the most important thing about that story, which is not often told, is that as a result after the Cuban missile crisis, immediate steps were taken to correct our inability to collect on the movement of nuclear material out of the Soviet Union to other places. – David Kay

88378. I also believe that it is time to begin the fundamental analysis of how we got here, what led us here and what we need to do in order to ensure that we are equipped with the best possible intelligence as we face these issues in the future. – David Kay

88379. I do believe we have to understand why reality turned out to be different than expectations and estimates. But you have more public service – certainly many of you – than I have ever had, and you recognize that this is not unusual. – David Kay

88380. I had innumerable analysts who came to me in apology that the world that we were finding was not the world that they had thought existed and that they had estimated. Reality on the ground differed in advance. – David Kay

88381. And let me take one of the explanations most commonly given: Analysts were pressured to reach conclusions that would fit the political agenda of one or another administration. I deeply think that is a wrong explanation. – David Kay

88382. I mean, I could just go round and use session musicians for every song, but I don’t find that helps when it comes to setting up a band for live. Derrick has been with me for donkey’s years. – Jay Kay

88383. My place in Scotland is in the middle of nowhere, so you’ve just got a keyboard, guitar, a little drum machine and you know if you can work stuff out like that, if you can hammer out songs that sound good just with those three things and a voice, you’re on your way. – Jay Kay

88384. Toby not being there doesn’t bother me, I mean I can work with anybody as long as we get along and as long as they’ve got an understanding of what I want and what I’m aiming for. To start with, when he left, it was difficult. – Jay Kay

88385. We spent a month in LA using a pool of musicians, a string arranger called Benjamin Wright, some great backing singers, and it gave tracks like Dynamite, which was written there, that kind of flavour. – Jay Kay

88386. I wasn’t born a fool. It took work to get this way. – Danny Kaye

88387. You bet I arrived overnight. Over a few hundred nights in the Catskills, in vaudeville, in clubs and on Broadway. – Danny Kaye

88388. To travel is to take a journey into yourself. – Danny Kaye

88389. Life is a great big canvas; throw all the paint you can at it. – Danny Kaye

88391. The more ambivalent you are and the more uncertain you are, then you can get something that you cannot anticipate. – Elia Kazan

88392. I was the true future. I understood Communism better than they did. – Elia Kazan

88393. I was very intense. I think it’s a privilege to be an actor. – Elia Kazan
