91631. Solidarity was the movement that turned the direction of history, I think. – Jeane Kirkpatrick

91632. That is simply that Marxism has been tremendously fashionable in our time, so it has infected a very large number of major institutions in many countries of the world. So I suppose that we shouldn’t be too surprised that it should infect the church as well. – Jeane Kirkpatrick

91633. The real point is that totalitarian regimes have claimed jurisdiction over the whole person, and the whole society, and they don’t at all believe that we should give unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s and unto God that which is God’s. – Jeane Kirkpatrick

91634. There is an absolutely fundamental hostility on the part of totalitarian regimes toward religion. – Jeane Kirkpatrick

91649. I always assume that democracy is the only good form of government, quite frankly, and democracy is always to be preferred. – Jeane Kirkpatrick

91778. Nevertheless, there is another threat on the horizon. I see this threat in environmentalism which is becoming a new dominant ideology, if not a religion. Its main weapon is raising the alarm and predicting the human life endangering climate change based on man-made global warming. – Vaclav Klaus

91779. That means following a very restrictive fiscal and monetary policy which will squeeze the monopolies and cut their subsidies. On the micro level we will allow other economic agents, both domestic and foreign, to compete with them. – Vaclav Klaus

91790. By the time I returned to Czechoslovakia, I had an understanding of the principles of the market. – Vaclav Klaus

91791. To pursue a so-called Third Way is foolish. We had our experience with this in the 1960s when we looked for a socialism with a human face. It did not work, and we must be explicit that we are not aiming for a more efficient version of a system that has failed. – Vaclav Klaus

91801. A single day is enough to make us a little larger or, another time, a little smaller. – Paul Klee

91803. A drawing is simply a line going for a walk. – Paul Klee

91804. Nature is garrulous to the point of confusion, let the artist be truly taciturn. – Paul Klee

91806. He has found his style, when he cannot do otherwise. – Paul Klee

91807. Everything vanishes around me, and works are born as if out of the void. Ripe, graphic fruits fall off. My hand has become the obedient instrument of a remote will. – Paul Klee

91808. When looking at any significant work of art, remember that a more significant one probably has had to be sacrificed. – Paul Klee

91809. Color possesses me. I don’t have to pursue it. It will possess me always, I know it. That is the meaning of this happy hour: Color and I are one. I am a painter. – Paul Klee

91810. To emphasize only the beautiful seems to me to be like a mathematical system that only concerns itself with positive numbers. – Paul Klee

91811. The worst state of affairs is when science begins to concern itself with art. – Paul Klee

91822. I read one or two other books which gave me a background in mathematics other than logic. – Stephen Cole Kleene

91823. I don’t think Post often came to Princeton during the ’30s. I can’t remember ever seeing him in Princeton. – Stephen Cole Kleene

91824. For example, the philosophers who were interested in logic were probably rather logical for mathematicians. But the ASL got us together, so we could talk to each other and publish in the same journal. – Stephen Cole Kleene

91825. As I say, there was this movement to try to bring philosophers and mathematicians together into an organization where they would talk to each other. An organization wasn’t effective unless you had a journal. That’s about all I know. – Stephen Cole Kleene

91826. And what I learned in Church’s course. He trained us intensively in his new system, which he was just developing. Two papers were presented. I think the second paper wasn’t published until well after the course was finished. – Stephen Cole Kleene

91827. I think that after Church got his Ph.D. he studied in Europe, maybe in the Netherlands, for a year or two. – Stephen Cole Kleene

91828. I had a liberal arts education at Amherst College where I had two majors, mathematics and philosophy. – Stephen Cole Kleene

91829. When I got to Princeton I made a point of attending the Philosophy Club and listening to the lectures, but I didn’t get involved in any discussions in those clubs. I guess after the first year, I dropped that. – Stephen Cole Kleene

91830. Well, I think Barkley and I were the only two who were working with Church for a Ph.D. – Stephen Cole Kleene

91831. I had some hesitations about philosophy because, if you worked out a philosophical theory, it was hard to know whether you were going to be able to prove it or whether other theories had just as good a claim on belief. – Stephen Cole Kleene

91832. Children remind us to treasure the smallest of gifts, even in the most difficult of times. – Allen Klein

91833. To a child, often the box a toy came in is more appealing than the toy itself. – Allen Klein
