93183. Aesthetically, we were enormously successful. Economically… there was no success. It was all about music of the future and unfortunately it was a band that didn’t have any future. – Wayne Kramer

93184. I was a little ahead of him but that didn’t matter after awhile. – Wayne Kramer

93185. Now, two years have passed and the situation is completely different: no one wants to organise this match. – Vladimir Kramnik

93186. I feel that my relationship with Kasparov now is much the same as it had been before the match – good. As for his reaction, well it can’t be nice to lose your title after so long, but he was very generous. – Vladimir Kramnik

93187. I made a better decision in choosing my team. Sure, I had a bigger choice of players to choose from – but I couldn’t have asked for a harder working group of players who did an incredible job. – Vladimir Kramnik

93188. In chess one cannot control everything. Sometimes a game takes an unexpected turn, in which beauty begins to emerge. Both players are always instrumental in this. – Vladimir Kramnik

93190. It made a big difference to my match stamina. I couldn’t imagine I would have been so energetic during the match – it really gave me a welcomed extra boost! – Vladimir Kramnik

93191. I don’t like to show my emotions at the board, not because they might give something away to an opponent, but because that’s my style: I like to keep it to myself. – Vladimir Kramnik

93192. No – I’m quite calm inside during the game for most of the time – not 100%, but generally very calm. – Vladimir Kramnik

93193. Every top player has his own style, just as every painter has his own personal signature. – Vladimir Kramnik

93194. Once he had selected the path he was going down he really had to stick with it in a 16 game match. He had to try and hit in the one direction but unfortunately for him – though fortunately for me! – he hit in the wrong direction. – Vladimir Kramnik

93195. My way of playing is very different and Karpov plays very differently as well. – Vladimir Kramnik

93196. I believe every chess player senses beauty, when he succeeds in creating situations, which contradict the expectations and the rules, and he succeeds in mastering this situation. – Vladimir Kramnik

93197. I am convinced, the way one plays chess always reflects the player’s personality. If something defines his character, then it will also define his way of playing. – Vladimir Kramnik

93198. An impatient person plays differently than a more patient person. – Vladimir Kramnik

93199. For me art and chess are closely related, both are forms in which the self finds beauty and expression. – Vladimir Kramnik

93202. But with the Berlin, I was able to allow him to get near, but not quite near enough, and I knew where to draw the line with the fortresses I had set up. – Vladimir Kramnik

93203. At some point he seemed to lose all confidence trying to break down the Berlin Wall. He was still fighting as only Kasparov can, but I could see it in his eyes that he knew he wasn’t going to win one of these games. – Vladimir Kramnik

93204. Only he, who penetrates into the depth of the game, can express his personality in it. – Vladimir Kramnik

93205. So basically it’s very simple: to start with, if you want to win the match, you shouldn’t be afraid of him. There are still many, many things to do, but above all this is the most important: Don’t be scared of him! – Vladimir Kramnik

93206. For us chess players the language of artist is something natural. – Vladimir Kramnik

93207. The Berlin Defence suited my strategy for the match. I had a defensive strategy – Actually, I had in my pocket some other sharper stuff to fall back on – but first I wanted to try the defensive strategy with Black and it worked so well. – Vladimir Kramnik

93208. The development of beauty in chess never depends on you alone. No matter how much imagination and creativity you invest, you still do not create beauty. Your opponent must react at the same highest level. – Vladimir Kramnik

93209. Okay, when you start to fight for equality, like Anand did in 1995, you could end up losing game 10, like he did, without putting up any kind of fight. – Vladimir Kramnik

93210. The strength of the playing ability is much more important. Only if the strength of the opponent’s playing ability is comparable, does the game develop. – Vladimir Kramnik

93211. When I speak of the beauty of a game of chess, then naturally this is subjective. Beauty can be found in a very technical, mathematical game for example. That is the beauty of clarity. – Vladimir Kramnik

93212. With the Berlin I was able to set up a fortress that he could come near but not breach. – Vladimir Kramnik

93213. You know, our ratings after this match will be very close – I think I can also become the world number one in the not too distant future. However, I’m sure that Garry will also have something to say about this! – Vladimir Kramnik

93214. Surely the whole point of writing your own life story is to be as honest as you possibly can, revealing everything about yourself that is most private and probably most interesting for that very reason. – Judith Krantz

93215. You can browse to your heart’s content but it’s hard work and not easy on the feet unless you do it through catalogs or the Internet, and I like to touch and try on the things I buy. – Judith Krantz

93216. On the one hand, shopping is dependable: You can do it alone, if you lose your heart to something that is wrong for you, you can return it; it’s instant gratification and yet something you buy may well last for years. – Judith Krantz

93217. My work caused me to interview hundreds of women about their lives and their problems. – Judith Krantz

93218. I would, however, start writing fiction about 10 years before I actually did, because it’s such great fun to do, many times more creative than nonfiction. – Judith Krantz

93219. I got that experience through dating dozens of men for six years after college, getting an entry level magazine job at 21, working in the fiction department at Good Housekeeping and then working as a fashion editor there as well as writing many articles for the magazine. – Judith Krantz

93220. Heaven knows, I’ve exposed myself in my novels through the use of fantasy and imagination… now my new book is about what really happened to me… not my heroines. – Judith Krantz

93221. It can’t possibly last for years and browsing has its limits. Only a certain amount is healthy or wise. – Judith Krantz

93222. I used to make fun of my friends who had BlackBerries. And I know that the expression CrackBerry has been going around, but now I fully understand it. I’m actually addicted to a piece of machinery, and that’s really embarrassing. – John Krasinski

93223. The perfect gadget would somehow allow me to fly. Isn’t that what everybody wants? It would also cook a damn good microwave pizza. So while in flight you had something to eat – an in-flight meal. Where would I go? Well, nowadays, it would probably just take me to work a lot quicker. – John Krasinski

93224. My name was originally John Collins, but I just didn’t think it had the flair I needed. I found out the poet laureate of Poland was named Krasinski and so it seemed like a shoe-in for show business. – John Krasinski

93225. Being funny is one of my greatest strengths. I can make girls smile when they’re down, and when they’re having a good time, I can carry on the joke. – John Krasinski

93226. I’m really not feeling one way or the other with comedy or drama, I’m just sort of doing projects that I’ve been finding really fun to be a part of. – John Krasinski

93227. I think one of the coolest things about the job is the level of trust we have for each other. The actors fully trust that the writers will write amazing episodes, and the writers trust that the actors will follow their instincts with the characters. – John Krasinski

93228. Each cast member brings their own vibe and antics to the set. You’re constantly surrounded by fun loving people who can make you laugh in their own way. – John Krasinski

93229. Boston is actually the capital of the world. You didn’t know that? We breed smart-ass, quippy, funny people. Not that I’m one of them. I just sorta sneaked in under the radar. – John Krasinski

93230. My favorite water cooler topic is fantasy football. I used to make fun of friends for doing it and now I’m obsessed. – John Krasinski

93231. Painting… in which the inner and the outer man are inseparable, transcends technique, transcends subject and moves into the realm of the inevitable. – Lee Krasner

93232. The Jumble Shop would be one place where we’d sometimes accumulate down in the Village. I think it might be just a place that’s unknown that was right around the corner from wherever it was that we met. – Lee Krasner

93233. You were told how much space so it was a matter of whether you could send in two paintings or three paintings, you know, pending where the show was being held. You did submit work to be accepted. Once you were accepted that was it. You did your own selection of what went in. – Lee Krasner

93234. With Jackson there was quiet solitude. Just to sit and look at the landscape. An inner quietness. After dinner, to sit on the back porch and look at the light. No need for talking. For any kind of communication. – Lee Krasner

93235. Well, let’s say we acknowledged the School of French Painting – the Paris School of painting as the leading force and vitality of the time. I think that was understood and felt and experienced. – Lee Krasner

93239. My studio was on 9th Street between University and Broadway. – Lee Krasner

93312. It sounds so trite but in relationships, you have to communicate. – Peter Krause

93314. I’m moved to think about the political state of our country right now. Most people who go out and vote have a very clear sense of what’s right and wrong. And a lot of those people who don’t aren’t sure, so they don’t go out and vote. – Peter Krause

93315. I think that every show on television has its place. I think Married With Children or, I don’t know, The Nanny… some people want to go home, turn on the TV and be able to iron their clothes or grab a sandwich. Come out and catch a joke and not have to follow the story. – Peter Krause

93316. I started college Pre-Med. That lasted about half a semester. – Peter Krause

93317. At this point, I’m spoiled. I’ve actually had a really blessed career. – Peter Krause

93318. And then, all of a sudden, you’re like, all that’s great and fun, but Arthur Miller’s in my dressing room. This is the third night he’s been here and he sits in my dressing room for an hour after each show, and talks to me for an hour. So I’m pretty spoiled right now. – Peter Krause

93319. I think that being a conscious parent opens your eyes to the fact that any adult relationships that you have, whenever children are present on a daily basis, that they’re modeling how they get along with people by what they see how you get along. – Peter Krause

93320. Oh Mr.Webster could never define what’s being said between your heart and mine. – Allison Krauss

93326. Newt Gingrich had to work hard – getting Republican candidates to sign the Contract with America – to nationalize the election that swept Republicans to victory in 1994. A Democratic anti-Tea Party campaign would do that for the Republicans – nationalize the election, gratis – in 2010. – Charles Krauthammer

93327. Obama is a leveler. He has come to narrow the divide between rich and poor. For him the ultimate social value is fairness. Imposing it upon the American social order is his mission. – Charles Krauthammer

93329. If we insist that public life be reserved for those whose personal history is pristine, we are not going to get paragons of virtue running our affairs.

93330. I am not religious. I do not believe that personhood is conferred upon conception. But I also do not believe that a human embryo is the moral equivalent of a hangnail and deserves no more respect than an appendix. – Charles Krauthammer

93331. I happen to believe that the preemption school is correct, that the risks of allowing Saddam Hussein to acquire his weapons will only grow with time. – Charles Krauthammer

93332. If Obama has his way, the change that is coming is a new America: “fair,” leveled and social democratic. Obama didn’t get elected to warranty your muffler. He’s here to warranty your life. – Charles Krauthammer

93333. Every two years the American politics industry fills the airwaves with the most virulent, scurrilous, wall-to-wall character assassination of nearly every political practitioner in the country – and then declares itself puzzled that America has lost trust in its politicians. – Charles Krauthammer

93334. Fairness through leveling is the essence of Obamaism. – Charles Krauthammer

93336. When under attack, no country is obligated to collect permission slips from allies to strike back. – Charles Krauthammer

93337. This is a formidable enemy. To dismiss it as a bunch of ‘cowards’ perpetuating ‘senseless acts of violence’ is complacent nonsense. People willing to kill thousands of innocents while they kill themselves are not cowards. They are deadly vicious warriors and need to be treated as such. – Charles Krauthammer

93338. Torture is an impermissible evil. Except under two circumstances. The first is the ticking time bomb. An innocent’s life is at stake. The bad guy you have captured possesses information that could save this life. He refuses to divulge. In such a case, the choice is easy. – Charles Krauthammer

93339. As I said there is nothing wrong with failing. Pick yourself up and try it again. You never are going to know how good you really are until you go out and face failure. – Henry Kravis

93342. You only have one thing to sell in life, and that’s yourself. – Henry Kravis

93343. If you don’t have integrity, you have nothing. You can’t buy it. You can have all the money in the world, but if you are not a moral and ethical person, you really have nothing. – Henry Kravis

93344. One, I love the creativity. I love the ability to create a capital structure that is appropriate for a company, no matter what field it happens to be in. – Henry Kravis

93345. It’s one of the most important things at the end of the day, being able to say no to an investment. – Henry Kravis

93346. It’s not just buying the company. Sure, we picked the right companies, and we picked the right management and, most importantly, we’ve given them the right incentive to perform. – Henry Kravis

93347. If you have something at risk, you think differently. – Henry Kravis

93348. But once you buy a company, you are married. You are married to that company. – Henry Kravis

93350. Look, don’t congratulate us when we buy a company, congratulate us when we sell it. Because any fool can overpay and buy a company, as long as money will last to buy it. – Henry Kravis

93351. If we can just take a few companies, and use those as models, as examples, to show the rest of corporate America how they can become more competitive, that’s what I’d like to do and that’s what I hope to do. – Henry Kravis

93352. I always like to refer managers in corporate America as the renters of the corporate assets, not the owners. – Henry Kravis

93353. I was an economics major in college, and every summer after school, I would drive my car from California, from Claremont men’s college at the time, to New York. And I worked on Wall Street. – Henry Kravis

93354. I want people who will stand up to me. People who are not afraid to say exactly what’s on their minds, even though that’s probably not what I want to hear. That’s what I want. – Henry Kravis

93355. I thought at the time that I wanted to go into institutional sales, selling stocks and bonds to institutions. In those days, which was the 1960s, the institutional salesman was making about $100,000 a year. I thought that was just an enormous amount of money. – Henry Kravis

93356. I love the ability to work with very good managers, and to provide the right incentives for them, and truly become a partner with that management, and make that management take a long view. – Henry Kravis

93357. I have, in my partner George Roberts, a person who is the most wonderful man in the world to me. He’s like a brother to me. Creating with him, being side by side with him, in whatever we try to do, is a real pleasure to me. – Henry Kravis

93358. If you build that foundation, both the moral and the ethical foundation, as well as the business foundation, and the experience foundation, then the building won’t crumble. – Henry Kravis

93368. It’s like a dream to come to Spain and stay for a couple of years and get somebody to teach me Spanish music. – Lenny Kravitz

93369. The story that I wanna tell is pretty much about the way I grew up. Being bi-racial, growing up in a big city and being an artist. – Lenny Kravitz

93370. It was amazing to me that, all of a sudden, I was hearing my music on the radio and coming out of cars. – Lenny Kravitz

93371. If you listen to a lot of old funk records, the drums are really small. But you don’t perceive it like that because the groove is so heavy. – Lenny Kravitz

93373. The image is an image. – Lenny Kravitz

93374. If I were white, I’d get less criticism. – Lenny Kravitz

93375. The loyalty rate isn’t that high. I could have a big hit, then put out the next single, and they say, Oh yeah, who are you? Prove it again. – Lenny Kravitz

93376. If I had to associate myself with one song, it would probably be Let Love Rule. It’s so simple and to the point. It speaks for itself. – Lenny Kravitz

93377. There are so many people that don’t believe in themselves and don’t have faith. – Lenny Kravitz

93378. There’s definitely an old school element to my music, but I also think it’s modern. – Lenny Kravitz

93379. They think I’m being serious when actually I’m a very big clown. But you have to know me to see that. I’m constantly cracking up and cracking everybody else around me up. – Lenny Kravitz

93380. Today, people are more into the glitz and the glamour of everything. We don’t even read the inside of records anymore. – Lenny Kravitz

93381. We weren’t put here to be miserable. We were put here to do the best we can, and we should take our energy and improve our state of being. – Lenny Kravitz

93382. We’re getting so pulled in by computers and technology, and our kids have their face in the computers all day. The human relationship is being diminished by this. – Lenny Kravitz

93383. When I was a kid and I bought a record, I ripped that thing open, I wanted to know who was playing what, what studio it was cut at, who was the string arranger, who was the engineer. – Lenny Kravitz

93384. You can be around 100 people and be completely alone. People don’t realize what it’s really like. – Lenny Kravitz

93385. You’re never promised your next breath. – Lenny Kravitz

93386. The image that the public gets is whatever they perceive it to be. Everybody has an opinion, everybody has their own vision, so I don’t know what my public image is. I have no idea. – Lenny Kravitz

93387. I knew what I wanted to do from the time I was 5. – Lenny Kravitz

93388. God is always in my life, and that’s the most important thing to me. – Lenny Kravitz

93389. I am not trying to change the world. I am just offering my gift that God gave me, and if somebody is moved by it, that’s beautiful. – Lenny Kravitz

93390. I am still into the people I listened to growing up, so I completely remember what is like to be a fan, I haven’t changed. – Lenny Kravitz

93391. I am trying to get closer to God. – Lenny Kravitz

93392. I couldn’t tell you what I am going to do next ’cause I have no idea, but I am open to anything. – Lenny Kravitz

93393. I don’t play the tuba. – Lenny Kravitz

93394. I don’t think about the styles. I write whatever comes out and I use whatever kind of instrumentation works for those songs. – Lenny Kravitz

93395. I feel like I’m only in the beginning of my career. I’ve only made five albums. It’s not a lot. – Lenny Kravitz

93396. I have a great time with my band and on the stage we get along well. – Lenny Kravitz

93397. I identify with women more than men. I guess I have a strong feminine side. – Lenny Kravitz

93398. If you ask a hundred people, they all give you different answers. – Lenny Kravitz

93399. I knew Slash in high school, but not very well. Just knew him as this kid that used to hang out in the hallway. Pretty much looked then the way he does now. – Lenny Kravitz

93400. I made the record that my life had me make. Each one is like a diary. – Lenny Kravitz

93401. I mean, there are only so many notes. What makes something original is how you put it together. – Lenny Kravitz

93402. I’m more hungry now than I was 11 years ago. Which is great because I see a lot of artists that have been out for a long period of time. They get kind of fat. – Lenny Kravitz

93403. I’ve woken up from dreams and the whole song is there. I’m listening to it in my dreams. I consciously have to wake myself up and get a tape recorder because I hear it like a record. – Lenny Kravitz

93404. I’ve had to work very hard, and I don’t really have a category or fit into any niche, so each time I come out with a new record, it’s like, I’m a new guy. – Lenny Kravitz

93405. I just need to know that I did the very best I could and that I was true to myself. – Lenny Kravitz

93406. I’ve always been into films. I’ve been offered lots of films but they’ve always been these very stereotypical roles. They wanted me to play some gangster or street guy, or pimp, drug addict. – Lenny Kravitz

93407. I never sit down to write. When I’m moved, I do it. I just wait for it to come. You just hear it. I can’t really describe writing. It’s in my head. – Lenny Kravitz

93408. I’m in this for the long haul. I’ve been making music my whole life. – Lenny Kravitz

93409. I’m half Jewish, I’m half black, I look in-between. I dress funny. I play all these different styles of music on one record. It’s like, What is he doing? – Lenny Kravitz

93410. I’m always sort of reflecting on what I do on what I’ve done. Usually before I make a new album, I’ll listen to the previous albums just to see where I’ve been. – Lenny Kravitz

93411. I wouldn’t play together with someone who likes to control everything like me. – Lenny Kravitz

93412. I wasn’t the kind of person that liked waiting for autographs or following them, I just liked to go to the shows, study their records, driving many, many hours to different states to go to concerts. – Lenny Kravitz

93413. I was taught by my grandfather that anything that your mind can conceive, you can have. It’s a reality. – Lenny Kravitz

93414. I think it’d be a real nightmare to put a record out and sell 20 million copies and then that’s it. – Lenny Kravitz

93415. I’ve been compared to hundreds of artists, which just goes to show you that I’m not any one thing at all. – Lenny Kravitz

93416. A dramatic thing, the first time you stand up to your dad. – Lenny Kravitz

93417. For the last few years, it’s been so chic for everybody to be miserable. Like if you’re in with the cool crowd, you can’t be happy. – Lenny Kravitz

93418. God forbid you sing about love. It’s a lost concept. – Lenny Kravitz

93419. Every night is different, you never know what it’s going to be like. I remember every night. I don’t like to compare them. – Lenny Kravitz

93420. Confusion makes people uncomfortable. They can’t put their finger on me. – Lenny Kravitz

93421. Change is growth. For me it has been a very spiritual and musical rebirth. – Lenny Kravitz

93422. A lot of people pretty much only listen to the chorus. – Lenny Kravitz

93423. A lot of people don’t listen to the lyrics, really. – Lenny Kravitz

93424. God gave me the gift to be able to play instruments and I have to play. – Lenny Kravitz

93425. IN trying to recall my impressions during my short war duty as an officer in the Austrian Army, I find that my recollections of this period are very uneven and confused. – Fritz Kreisler

93426. Signs of fatigue soon manifested themselves more and more strongly, and slowly the men dropped out one by one, from sheer exhaustion. No murmur of complaint, however, would be heard. – Fritz Kreisler

93427. What impressed me particularly in Vienna was the strict order everywhere. No mob disturbances of any kind, in spite of the greatly increased liberty and relaxation of police regulations. – Fritz Kreisler

93428. We started at once to dig our trenches, half of my platoon stepping forward abreast, the men being placed an arm’s length apart. After laying their rifles down, barrels pointing to the enemy, a line was drawn behind the row of rifles and parallel to it. – Fritz Kreisler

93429. The outbreak of the war found my wife and me in Switzerland, where we were taking a cure. – Fritz Kreisler

93430. The moral effect of the thundering of one’s own artillery is most extraordinary, and many of us thought that we had never heard any more welcome sound than the deep roaring and crashing that started in at our rear. – Fritz Kreisler

93431. Suddenly, at about ten o’clock, a dull thud sounded somewhere far away from us, and simultaneously we saw a small white round cloud about half a mile ahead of us where the shrapnel had exploded. The battle had begun. – Fritz Kreisler

93432. Although I had resigned my commission as an officer two years before, I immediately left Switzerland, accompanied by my wife, in order to report for duty. As it happened, a wire reached me a day later calling me to the colors. – Fritz Kreisler

93433. Life that only a few hours before had glowed with enthusiasm and exultation, suddenly paled and sickened. – Fritz Kreisler

93434. My wife volunteered her services as Red Cross nurse, insisting upon being sent to the front, in order to be as near me as could be, but it developed later that no nurse was allowed to go farther than the large troop hospitals far in the rear of the actual operations. – Fritz Kreisler

93435. I saw a great many men die afterwards, some suffering horribly, but I do not recall any death that affected me quite so much as that of this first victim in my platoon. – Fritz Kreisler

93436. Human nerves quickly get accustomed to the most unusual conditions and circumstances and I noticed that quite a number of men actually fell asleep from sheer exhaustion in the trenches, in spite of the roaring of the cannon about us and the whizzing of shrapnel over our heads. – Fritz Kreisler

93437. Genius is an overused word. The world has known only about a half dozen geniuses. I got only fairly near. – Fritz Kreisler

93438. One gets into a strange psychological, almost hypnotic, state of mind while on the firing line which probably prevents the mind’s eye from observing and noticing things in a normal way. – Fritz Kreisler

93439. I was into Barbie and designer jeans. – Carson Kressley

93440. We did a whole fraternity house. We made them over. – Carson Kressley

93441. Show’s going well. New season starting, we’re on the road. – Carson Kressley

93443. I am not much about rules, I like to break ’em and don’t like to make ’em. – Carson Kressley

93444. One of my co-workers at Ralph Lauren heard about the show, and when she got back to the office, said; Carson, you have to call Bravo. They’re doing a show. You’re perfect for it. – Carson Kressley

93445. I thought that if you come across as a freak, there will be some kind of distance. Maybe the distance became excessive. I realized that people were afraid of me without knowing me. – Thomas Kretschmann

93446. I don’t pretend anything anymore. I don’t have time, desire or energy to calculate anymore. – Thomas Kretschmann

93447. My reputation was a bit exaggerated. Things were written in newspapers, then copied, then doubled. One of the reasons why I never disclaimed that, was because I found it amusing. But I also constructed such an image for myself in order to gain more of a private life. – Thomas Kretschmann

93448. I’ve worked with many directors, good ones and bad ones. So if I have a chance to work the good ones, I better put myself in their hands, and trust them, because that’s my big opportunity to be different, and to be better than usual. – Thomas Kretschmann

93449. I’m proud of the fact that I made my way in life very rigorously. I was a bit too stubborn when it came to certain things, which was unnecessary, like getting independent from and leaving Germany. – Thomas Kretschmann

93450. I figured out, I guess, that the job just makes me happy if it’s not number one. So if it all works, great. If it doesn’t, I still go home, look at my kids, and I have a big smile on my face. – Thomas Kretschmann

93451. I don’t see a film industry in Germany. They have a great TV culture, but how many German films are really exciting? – Thomas Kretschmann

93452. Acting is all about truth and honesty, and the sensitivity that’s capable of transporting you. – Thomas Kretschmann

93453. I experienced a lot, and achieved nearly everything I wanted. I can enjoy that today. Go to bed at nine in the evening, because my child wakes up around seven, without having the feeling that I missed or are missing something. – Thomas Kretschmann

93454. I did gymnastics when I was growing up and to this day I can still do the splits. – Kristin Kreuk

93455. It’s not that easy to find someone I can relate too. I’m tough to crack because I’m shy. – Kristin Kreuk

93456. Just because I don’t do bad things doesn’t mean I don’t have bad thoughts. – Kristin Kreuk

93457. I mean, when it gets down to it I just wanted to play the drums. The rest of it never meant that much to me. – Bill Kreutzmann

93458. I’ve gone through guys who want to lay on their backs and play like they’re full of themselves. You know, I don’t care about posing. I mean look at me, do I care about posing? – Bill Kreutzmann

93459. I’m really thankful and complimented when people come to me and say, thank you for the great times for all these years. But I don’t think about it as being a leader. – Bill Kreutzmann

93460. I’d rather play here in this small bar and just do a good show. Because it’s fun and there’s no expectations, it’s encouragement to be different, do something new. – Bill Kreutzmann

93461. In the very beginning we were a real tight family but now it’s different. You know, toward the end, we had separate limos, stuff like that. It’s hard to get six giant egos in the same place. – Bill Kreutzmann

93462. I saw a drummer play once when I was a kid and I thought, that’s really cool. You know, you’re moving. You’re using your arms and fingers. So I tried it and I loved it. – Bill Kreutzmann

93463. I made that decision back in 1985. I was out here getting certified in SCUBA with Garcia in Kona and I thought to myself, this is a place to wake up in in the morning. – Bill Kreutzmann

93464. I love the farm, I love growing stuff. – Bill Kreutzmann

93465. I care about being able to play. If you’re playing with integrity in the music, then that’s what matters. But it wasn’t that great for me because it was kinda like going back into the old times without the guy. – Bill Kreutzmann

93466. I am just a guy who plays drums. – Bill Kreutzmann

93467. I always thought it would be really cool to be playing the drums in the show and then have your astral body or whatever travel all through the audience and dig whatever it’s like out there. – Bill Kreutzmann

93468. At first I missed it, but it was the amazing energy thing that happened during shows, when a lot of people were like Yay Yay Yeah! I missed that for a while. But I don’t miss the regular and the business side of that whole thing. – Bill Kreutzmann

93469. I mean, we just started, it’s a new thing. We’re doing this for fun and we’re going to see where it goes. – Bill Kreutzmann

93470. I wouldn’t be doing this if it wasn’t fun. It’s just a whole different thing these days. – Bill Kreutzmann

93471. Well, to tell you the straight honest truth, it was like a Grateful Dead cover band. I didn’t feel – and nothing against the guys – I didn’t feel that they were opening up like they should. I’ll tell you what, with guitar players, Steven has what I like in guitar players. – Bill Kreutzmann

93472. It’s not the same without Jerry. It never will be. – Bill Kreutzmann

93473. Oh yeah, it’s great see music and to play music in small places. And it’s really fun for me to play here because, you know, I played two feet from people all night. And after all those years, it’s great to be able to talk to folks. – Bill Kreutzmann

93474. When Garcia died, and I decided not to play, I came out here. – Bill Kreutzmann

93475. My dad loved black singers. So listening to New Orleans music, eventually I wanted to play an instrument. – Bill Kreutzmann

93476. To be honest, I’m not as goal oriented and ambitious as I once was. – Chantal Kreviazuk

93477. The flattery is nice, but awards don’t add up to writing quality songs. – Chantal Kreviazuk

93478. Once I got a record contract, and I took my songs which weren’t quite finished, or maybe they were a good idea, maybe they weren’t. I took them into the studio and developed them. They came to life and they evolved… and they’re great. – Chantal Kreviazuk

93479. Of course, I would be depressed sometimes, and my Mom would be worried about me because I would just sleep to escape. Cause I was so scared of being a musician or artist, or whatever you want to call it. – Chantal Kreviazuk

93480. When I was 21, I got into a motorcycle accident while traveling in Europe and I had to lie around a lot in the aftermath, which was really the first time in my life that I became really focused and inspired to write. – Chantal Kreviazuk

93481. Well, I actually first got into music as a small child, and as I became a teen, I sought out making money from music, weather that was singing lounge gigs, backup in studios, or weddings. – Chantal Kreviazuk

93482. If I’m writing strictly for others, how does that show what I’m experiencing or thinking? I just got to a point where I realized I could be as personal as I wanted to be and people could relate to those situations if they so choose. – Chantal Kreviazuk

93483. Maybe in past years, perhaps women didn’t feel quite as comfortable with revealing themselves, and their skills and their crafts… and now we are, so we’re out there, just like the guys. – Chantal Kreviazuk

93484. Making sleep happen is a must – anytime, anywhere, from a plane to a train to an automobile. Ideally, I like to get eight to ten hours a night, though I’ll take it broken up in two segments if I have to. – Chantal Kreviazuk

93485. Actually, no, because awards don’t spark sales as much as you’d think. – Chantal Kreviazuk

93486. I think it’s important to really press on with the song writing and just go with it. There’s no code, there’s no craft… it’s just let yourself shine through your music. If it’s meant to be loved and heard, it’ll happen. – Chantal Kreviazuk

93487. Well, Winnepeg has everything to do with my music in the sense it was where I was born and raised, cultured and all that sort of thing. A lot of my experiences come from Winnepeg. – Chantal Kreviazuk

93488. I’ve built a solid career there, but America’s ten times the size. Now that we’re onto the third record, I feel like the stars have aligned and American audiences are embracing my music even more. – Chantal Kreviazuk

93489. And I think it’s a real challenge to be up there sometimes with only a keyboard if they don’t have a grand piano… and to try to win people over that way. It’s really hard. – Chantal Kreviazuk

93490. I’m learning a lot about myself being alone, and doing what I’m doing. – Chantal Kreviazuk

93491. I seem to have secured some place in world of music and that’s kind of all that really matters to me. – Chantal Kreviazuk

93492. I’ve found that in now having experienced what it’s like to make records and just through growing up in general that you should be expressive about what’s affecting you instead of trying to sing about a subject just for the sake of other people getting something from it. – Chantal Kreviazuk

93493. I listened to my record and hear lots of influences. And it’s very rich… it’s got a wide spectrum. – Chantal Kreviazuk

93494. If certain songs become popular enough to the point where I’ll be playing them the rest of my life, I don’t want them all to dwell on the same down moment that I’ll have to keep reliving. – Chantal Kreviazuk

93495. I can’t say I want to earn a particular award or sell a certain number of records, because even if I do that, the satisfaction only lasts five minutes. – Chantal Kreviazuk

93496. Generally my feeling is that I think women are just in a universal way coming out, coming to their own more. And they have more opportunity, and basically we’re equal. – Chantal Kreviazuk

93497. I’m not writing just about melancholy stuff anymore, I made a point to cover a wide range of emotions. – Chantal Kreviazuk

93498. Schools are really bad now. Schools are not only bad in reading, writing and arithmetic, they’re worse in cultural aspects, like in music and art. They don’t teach you anything. – John Kricfalusi

93499. You can draw Family Guy when you’re 10 years old. You don’t have to get any better than that to become a professional cartoonist. The standards are extremely low. – John Kricfalusi

93500. You buy any book on color theory today, and it’s just complete poppycock. Everybody comes out of school painting pink, purple and green. The whole damn cartoon industry has pink purple and green on their mind. – John Kricfalusi

93501. To make something look real and alive, nothing can be symmetrical because nothing in real life is symmetrical. You have to make it look organic. – John Kricfalusi

93502. There’s tons of people with talent; it’s the system that’s all screwed up. – John Kricfalusi

93503. The storyboard department doesn’t talk to the layout department, which doesn’t talk to the writing department. They’re all jealous of each other. – John Kricfalusi

93504. The generic Canadian style of illustration is different from the generic American style. – John Kricfalusi

93505. The only character I ever remember actually creating in a flash of inspiration was George Liquor. God planted that in my head in an instant. – John Kricfalusi

93506. If you’re a kid wanting to be a cartoonist today, and you’re looking at Family Guy, you don’t have to aim very high. – John Kricfalusi

93507. My intended audience was everybody. I just want to make cartoons for human beings. – John Kricfalusi

93508. One guy records the voices, another guy times the storyboard, another guy times the sheets, one guy is the story editor. All these jobs should be covered by the director. – John Kricfalusi

93509. Not very many people can draw who are illustrators today. – John Kricfalusi

93510. My style is very strong poses and expressions. – John Kricfalusi

93511. Most cartoons are those colors. They have been for 35 years. – John Kricfalusi

93512. Mel Blanc has been gone for 30 years, even though he’s still around. – John Kricfalusi

93513. Kids cannot follow stories. They don’t know what the hell is going on in a cartoon. They like to see funny visual things happening. – John Kricfalusi

93514. I’ll let you in on a secret: I can’t stand Jay Ward. I hate being compared to Rocky and Bullwinkle. It’s just a different style of humor. – John Kricfalusi

93515. In old movies, the cinematography is a thousand times better than anything today. Writing, a thousand times better. – John Kricfalusi

93516. Open a magazine from the 1930s and ’40s and look at the illustrations in it. There’s nobody alive that could touch the way they could draw back then. – John Kricfalusi

93517. As soon as I found out how compartmentalized the industry was, I realized, Well, no wonder the cartoons are so bad. – John Kricfalusi

93518. I influenced the BG style by not being able to draw perspective. The BG artists developed cool graphic painting styles to make my bad backgrounds look like they were that way on purpose. – John Kricfalusi

93519. I find it very hard to sit down and create an idea or especially a new character on command. Usually my characters evolve by accident out of some story context. – John Kricfalusi

93520. I don t think cartoons are only for kids, but I think kids will love anything as long as it’s visually interesting. – John Kricfalusi

93521. George Liquor is really the richest character I have. I’m amazed there aren’t 365 episodes about him on TV already. – John Kricfalusi

93522. From 20 years of experience hiring artists out of the schools, I know-they get worse every year. They’re absolutely ridiculously retarded now. – John Kricfalusi

93523. Joe Barbera’s s always complaining that he can’t get humor into cartoons anymore. Just do it. You’ve got your money. Why do they let the networks run their lives? – John Kricfalusi

93524. Cartoonists are untrained artists, while illustrators are more trained. – John Kricfalusi

93525. All artists get better with age. The more you draw, the better you’re going to get. – John Kricfalusi

93526. I didn’t plan on rock-n-roll. I wanted to learn jazz; I got to know some people doing rock-n-roll with jazz, and I thought I could make some money playing music. – Robby Krieger

93527. We made some mistakes. We had some managers we didn’t like and had to get rid of, and that cost some money. Stuff like that. But overall, we did really well. – Robby Krieger

93528. In The Doors we have both musicians and poets, and both know of each other’s art, so we can effect a synthesis. – Robby Krieger

93529. Most groups today aren’t groups. In a true group all the members create the arrangements among themselves. – Robby Krieger

93531. For a sensation to be felt as pain is for it to be pain. – Saul Kripke

93538. There is no end to education. It is not that you read a book, pass an examination, and finish with education. The whole of life, from the moment you are born to the moment you die, is a process of learning. – Jiddu Krishnamurti

93539. There is no need to education. It is not that you read a book, pass an examination, and finish with education. The whole of life, from the moment you are born to the moment you die, is a process of learning. – Jiddu Krishnamurti

93540. Tradition becomes our security, and when the mind is secure it is in decay. – Jiddu Krishnamurti

93541. You must understand the whole of life, not just one little part of it. That is why you must read, that is why you must look at the skies, that is why you must sing and dance, and write poems and suffer and understand, for all that is life. – Jiddu Krishnamurti

93542. The constant assertion of belief is an indication of fear. – Jiddu Krishnamurti

93543. We all want to be famous people, and the moment we want to be something we are no longer free. – Jiddu Krishnamurti

93544. What is needed, rather than running away or controlling or suppressing or any other resistance, is understanding fear; that means, watch it, learn about it, come directly into contact with it. We are to learn about fear, not how to escape from it. – Jiddu Krishnamurti

93545. A consistent thinker is a thoughtless person, because he conforms to a pattern; he repeats phrases and thinks in a groove. – Jiddu Krishnamurti

93546. So when you are listening to somebody, completely, attentively, then you are listening not only to the words, but also to the feeling of what is being conveyed, to the whole of it, not part of it. – Jiddu Krishnamurti

93547. A man who is not afraid is not aggressive, a man who has no sense of fear of any kind is really a free, a peaceful man. – Jiddu Krishnamurti

93548. All ideologies are idiotic, whether religious or political, for it is conceptual thinking, the conceptual word, which has so unfortunately divided man. – Jiddu Krishnamurti

93550. Hitler and Mussolini were only the primary spokesmen for the attitude of domination and craving for power that are in the heart of almost everyone. Until the source is cleared, there will always be confusion and hate, wars and class antagonisms. – Jiddu Krishnamurti

93551. I maintain that Truth is a pathless land, and you cannot approach it by any path whatsoever, by any religion, by any sect. – Jiddu Krishnamurti

93552. If we can really understand the problem, the answer will come out of it, because the answer is not separate from the problem. – Jiddu Krishnamurti

93553. In oneself lies the whole world and if you know how to look and learn, the door is there and the key is in your hand. Nobody on earth can give you either the key or the door to open, except yourself. – Jiddu Krishnamurti

93559. Of course it’s difficult to top a box office success like Emmanuelle, so it will always be my most important work. But that’s nothing to be ashamed of. – Sylvia Kristel

93560. When a new generation watches the films, people might mention that it has improved their lovemaking. I guess it’s because it isn’t threatening. It was very sweet and delicate. – Sylvia Kristel

93561. The only thing I was trying to portray was serenity. Also, innocence, vulnerability and elegance. – Sylvia Kristel

93562. The film was made in 1973. It was a golden time for people to experiment without risking, for example, AIDS. Today one has to be so much more careful and I don’t think a character like that could exist now. – Sylvia Kristel

93563. I’m very glad to have something to be passionate about. I can’t imagine a life without passion. – Sylvia Kristel

93564. I still have agents in France, Los Angeles and Amsterdam who call and suggest parts. I’d love to keep on doing both painting and acting until the end of my days. – Sylvia Kristel

93565. I learned so much from other actors and they definitely didn’t treat me like some sex bomb or bimbo. I felt fully accepted in the regular movie world. I didn’t feel categorised. – Sylvia Kristel

93566. Back then I didn’t think a woman like that, or a relationship like that, could exist with complete freedom and no jealousy or possessiveness. I thought it sounded too good to be true and I was certainly convinced it wasn’t the life for me! – Sylvia Kristel

93567. I have to be careful not to be too proud in life, because there is always room for improvement. – Sylvia Kristel

93568. It’s wonderful to be part of a family that cares so much about others. – Marta Kristen

93569. I guess I’m a born ham. – Marta Kristen

93570. We all have a common goal, and we know it’s all for our future good. – Marta Kristen

93571. Terry’s mother worked in the film industry for many years. She always wanted him to marry an actress. – Marta Kristen

93572. Look at all the marriages that have been wonderfully successful where fellows finished their army service and came home to go to college on G.I. bills and their wives worked. – Marta Kristen

93573. I was born in Norway, and when I was little I went to live in Detroit, Michigan. My father was a professor of philosophy at Wayne University, and my mother was also a teacher. – Marta Kristen

93574. I figure when you get married, it doesn’t matter how much you earn or how much your husband earns, just as long as everything you do for the house is together, while still reserving some part of yourself to be yourself. – Marta Kristen

93575. I’ve become a real housewife. Terry doesn’t mind me working, in fact he loves me to be independent. But I only get an allowance of $15 dollars a week, which doesn’t go very far. – Marta Kristen

93576. I’m a teen-age bride. – Marta Kristen

93577. There seems to be this sense among even well-meaning Americans that Africa is this black hole of murder and mutilation that can never be fixed, no matter what aid is brought in. – Nicholas D. Kristof

93578. The conflict in Darfur could escalate to where we’re seeing 100,000 victims per month. – Nicholas D. Kristof

93579. The fact that people will pay you to talk to people and travel to interesting places and write about what intrigues you, I am just amazed by that. – Nicholas D. Kristof

93580. The news media’s silence, particularly television news, is reprehensible. If we knew as much about Darfur as we do about Michael Jackson, we might be able to stop these things from continuing. – Nicholas D. Kristof

93581. The north of the Central African Republic is now a war zone, with rival armed bands burning villages, kidnapping children, robbing travelers and killing people with impunity. – Nicholas D. Kristof

93582. The photos were taken by African Union soldiers. People in Congress saw them. I thought if people could see them, there would be public outcry. No one would be able to say, We just didn’t know what was going on there. – Nicholas D. Kristof

93583. The U.N. Population Fund has a maternal health program in some Cameroon hospitals, but it doesn’t operate in this region. It’s difficult to expand, because President Bush has cut funding. – Nicholas D. Kristof

93584. The world spends $40 billion a year on pet food. – Nicholas D. Kristof

93585. There are other issues I have felt more emotionally connected to, like China, where I lived and worked for some time. I was living there when Tiananmen Square erupted. – Nicholas D. Kristof

93586. There isn’t a political price to be paid yet for doing nothing. People need to get upset with President Bush. People need to get upset with their Congressmen. – Nicholas D. Kristof

93587. We all might ask ourselves why we tune in to these more trivial matters and tune out when it comes to Darfur. – Nicholas D. Kristof

93588. While Americans have heard of Darfur and think we should be doing more there, they aren’t actually angry at the president about inaction. – Nicholas D. Kristof

93589. You don’t need to invade a place or install a new government to help bring about a positive change. – Nicholas D. Kristof

93590. You will be judged in years to come by how you responded to genocide on your watch. – Nicholas D. Kristof

93591. You would see people going back to homes that had been burned, putting thatch over their structures again. They still couldn’t leave the area without the danger of men being killed or women being raped, but it was a start. – Nicholas D. Kristof

93592. Half a million women die each year around the world in pregnancy. It’s not biology that kills them so much as neglect. – Nicholas D. Kristof

93593. The bulk of the emails tend to come after a column. I can get about 2,000 after a column. – Nicholas D. Kristof

93594. There is an element of anger among women who’ve been raped. There’s certainly a major element of humiliation. But it really does seem like a medical condition of shock and horror. – Nicholas D. Kristof

93595. Every year 3.1 million Indian children die before the age of 5, mostly from diseases of poverty like diarrhea. – Nicholas D. Kristof

93596. A few countries like Sri Lanka and Honduras have led the way in slashing maternal mortality. – Nicholas D. Kristof

93597. A little bit of attention can go a long way. – Nicholas D. Kristof

93598. Abortion politics have distracted all sides from what is really essential: a major aid campaign to improve midwifery, prenatal care and emergency obstetric services in poor countries. – Nicholas D. Kristof

93599. I think it’s dangerous to be optimistic. Things could go terribly wrong virtually overnight. – Nicholas D. Kristof

93600. As soon as I was old enough to drive, I got a job at a local newspaper. There was someone who influenced me. He wrote a column for The Guardian from this tiny village in India. – Nicholas D. Kristof

93601. Random violence is incredibly infectious. – Nicholas D. Kristof

93602. I have often tried to tell the story of a place through people there. – Nicholas D. Kristof

93603. I try to be careful about wording. One of the things I’ve tried to combat in my blog is the notion that journalists are arrogant and unconcerned with the readership. – Nicholas D. Kristof

93604. One of the things that really got to me was talking to parents who had been burned out of their villages, had family members killed, and then when men showed up at the wells to get water, they were shot. – Nicholas D. Kristof

93605. It really is quite remarkable that Darfur has become a household name. I am gratified that’s the case. – Nicholas D. Kristof

93606. It’s easy to keep issuing blame to Republicans or the president. – Nicholas D. Kristof

93607. Just a little help, a small security force, a bit of food, can save lives. – Nicholas D. Kristof

93608. Most of the villagers were hiding in the bush, where they were dying from bad water, malaria and malnutrition. – Nicholas D. Kristof

93609. Neither left nor right has focused adequately on maternal health. – Nicholas D. Kristof

93610. Neither Western donor countries like the U.S. nor poor recipients like Cameroon care much about Africans who are poor, rural and female. – Nicholas D. Kristof

93611. If President Bush is serious about genocide, an immediate priority is to stop the cancer of Darfur from spreading further, which means working with France to shore up Chad and the Central African Republic. – Nicholas D. Kristof

93612. All of a sudden their husband’s dead and maybe a child is dead and they have absolutely nothing – and they’re heading through the desert at night. – Nicholas D. Kristof

93613. Freedom’s just another word for nothing left to lose. – Kris Kristofferson

93614. You don’t paddle against the current, you paddle with it. And if you get good at it, you throw away the oars. – Kris Kristofferson

93615. Tell the truth. Sing with passion. Work with laughter. Love with heart. ‘Cause that’s all that matters in the end. – Kris Kristofferson

93616. Nothing ain’t worth nothing but it’s free. – Kris Kristofferson

93617. Johnny Cash has always been larger than life. – Kris Kristofferson

93619. If you can’t get out of something, get into it. – Kris Kristofferson

93620. All defense secretaries in wartime have, needless to say, made misjudgments. – Bill Kristol

93621. Shouldn’t Democrats insist that Sen. Durbin step down as their whip, the number two man in their leadership? – Bill Kristol

93622. Surely our inaction with respect to Syria is a poor precedent if we’re fighting a war on terror. – Bill Kristol

93623. These soldiers deserve a better defense secretary than the one we have. – Bill Kristol

93624. Bush is no conservative. – Bill Kristol

93625. If the American people really come to a settled belief that Bush lied us into war, his presidency will be over. – Bill Kristol

93626. In any case, decisions on troop levels in the American system of government are not made by any general or set of generals but by the civilian leadership of the war effort. – Bill Kristol

93627. Democracy does not guarantee equality of conditions – it only guarantees equality of opportunity. – Irving Kristol

93628. People need religion. It’s a vehicle for a moral tradition. A crucial role. Nothing can take its place. – Irving Kristol

93629. You have to know one big thing and stick with it. The leaders who had one very big idea and one very big commitment. This permitted them to create something. Those are the ones who leave a legacy. – Irving Kristol

93630. While formal schooling is an important advantage, it is not a guarantee of success nor is its absence a fatal handicap. – Ray Kroc

93631. You’re only as good as the people you hire. – Ray Kroc

93632. When you’re green, your growing. When you’re ripe, you rot. – Ray Kroc

93633. We take the hamburger business more seriously than anyone else. – Ray Kroc

93634. We provide food that customers love, day after day after day. People just want more of it. – Ray Kroc

93635. The two most important requirements for major success are: first, being in the right place at the right time, and second, doing something about it. – Ray Kroc

93636. The quality of a leader is reflected in the standards they set for themselves. – Ray Kroc

93637. None of Us is as Good as All of Us. – Ray Kroc

93638. Its easy to have principles when you’re rich. The important thing is to have principles when you’re poor. – Ray Kroc

93639. If you’re not a risk taker, you should get the hell out of business. – Ray Kroc

93640. If you work just for money, you’ll never make it, but if you love what you’re doing and you always put the customer first, success will be yours. – Ray Kroc

93641. Creativity is a highfalutin word for the work I have to do between now and Tuesday. – Ray Kroc

93642. As long as you’re green, you’re growing. As soon as you’re ripe, you start to rot. – Ray Kroc

93643. All money means to me is a pride in accomplishment. – Ray Kroc

93644. Are you green and growing or ripe and rotting? – Ray Kroc

93645. Luck is a dividend of sweat. The more you sweat, the luckier you get. – Ray Kroc

93646. Anthropology is the most humanistic of the sciences and the most scientific of the humanities. – Alfred L. Kroeber

93647. In general President Obama’s policies have been very, very skewed and very, very extreme. Like on healthcare for example, I don’t think that trying to ram healthcare through was a smart idea politically, because he wasted a lot of capital and now he doesn’t have any of that same capital with even his own party that he used to have. – Jonathan Krohn

93648. In politics almost all of us are nerds, so that’s just a given… but we’re cool nerds. – Jonathan Krohn

93649. I’d like to do policy and I’d like to do philosophy, I’d like to be able to get into the depth, into the meat of the argument – that’s the kind of stuff I want to do. – Jonathan Krohn

93650. I believe that this is the key, the principle itself is the key to conservatism. Because in many ways if you do not have a principled base you do not have policy and if you do not have policy in many ways you do not have an ideology. – Jonathan Krohn

93651. Conservatism is not about the party, because the party is merely the shell. It is the inside – it’s the filling that really means something. – Jonathan Krohn

93652. In the book I define conservatism, as I believe it is fit upon four categories of principle: respect for The Constitution, respect for life, less government, and personal responsibility. – Jonathan Krohn

93653. I think that President Obama is beginning to realize that a lot of his plans have backfired. – Jonathan Krohn

93654. Elvis’ disappearing body is like a flashing event horizon at the edge of the black hole that is America today. – Arthur Kroker

93655. Did any artist ever bring more pure joy to more people than Fred Astaire? – Jack Kroll

93656. He was one of those inexplicable gifts of nature, an artist who leaps over boundaries, changes our nervous systems, creates a new language, transmits new kinds of joy to our startled senses and spirits. – Jack Kroll

93657. God made integers, all else is the work of man. – Leopold Kronecker

93658. God made the integers; all else is the work of man. – Leopold Kronecker

93660. In art there are tears that lie too deep for thought. – Louis Kronenberger

93661. The trouble with our age is all signposts and no destination. – Louis Kronenberger

93662. There seems to be a terrible misunderstanding on the part of a great many people to the effect that when you cease to believe you may cease to behave. – Louis Kronenberger

93663. The Englishman wants to be recognized as a gentleman, or as some other suitable species of human being, the American wants to be considered a good guy. – Louis Kronenberger

93664. The closer and more confidential our relationship with someone, the less we are entitled to ask about what we are not voluntarily told. – Louis Kronenberger

93665. The trouble with us in America isn’t that the poetry of life has turned to prose, but that it has turned to advertising copy. – Louis Kronenberger

93666. Old age is an excellent time for outrage. My goal is to say or do at least one outrageous thing every week. – Louis Kronenberger

93667. Nothing so soothes our vanity as a display of greater vanity in others; it make us vain, in fact, of our modesty. – Louis Kronenberger

93668. Many people today don’t want honest answers insofar as honest means unpleasant or disturbing, They want a soft answer that turneth away anxiety. – Louis Kronenberger

93669. Individualism is rather like innocence; there must be something unconscious about it. – Louis Kronenberger

93670. Highly educated bores are by far the worst; they know so much, in such fiendish detail, to be boring about. – Louis Kronenberger

93671. One of the misfortunes of our time is that in getting rid of false shame we have killed off so much real shame as well. – Louis Kronenberger

93672. It is the gossip columnist’s business to write about what is none of his business. – Louis Kronenberger

93673. Have not prisons – which kill all will and force of character in man, which enclose within their walls more vices than are met with on any other spot of the globe – always been universities of crime? – Peter Kropotkin

93674. The law is an adroit mixture of customs that are beneficial to society, and could be followed even if no law existed, and others that are of advantage to a ruling minority, but harmful to the masses of men, and can be enforced on them only by terror. – Peter Kropotkin

93675. America is just the country that how all the written guarantees in the world for freedom are no protection against tyranny and oppression of the worst kind. There the politician has come to be looked upon as the very scum of society. – Peter Kropotkin

93676. I don’t necessarily think that installation is the only way to go. It’s just a label for certain kinds of arrangements. – Barbara Kruger

93677. I think there are different ways of being rigorous, and I am asking people to be as rigorous in their pleasure as in their criticism. – Barbara Kruger

93678. I think that every so-called history book and film biography should be prefaced by the statement that what follows is the author’s rendition of events and circumstances. – Barbara Kruger

93679. I think people have to set up little battles. They have to demonize people whom they disagree with or feel threatened by. But it’s the ideological framing of the debate that scares me. – Barbara Kruger

93680. I think I developed language skills to deal with threat. It’s the girl thing to do-you know, instead of pulling out a gun. – Barbara Kruger

93681. I think what I’m trying to do is create moments of recognition. To try to detonate some kind of feeling or understanding of lived experience. – Barbara Kruger

93682. I mean, making art is about objectifying your experience of the world, transforming the flow of moments into something visual, or textual, or musical, whatever. Art creates a kind of commentary. – Barbara Kruger

93683. I think there are lots of ways to make good work. You can throw big bucks at a project and make what some would call crap, or you can work very modestly with eloquently moving results. – Barbara Kruger

93684. I just say I’m an artist who works with pictures and words. – Barbara Kruger

93685. I feel uncomfortable with the term public art, because I’m not sure what it means. If it means what I think it does, then I don’t do it. I’m not crazy about categories. – Barbara Kruger

93686. Do you know why language manifests itself the way it does in my work? It’s because I understand short attention spans. – Barbara Kruger

93687. Direct address has been a consistent tactic in my work, regardless of the medium that I’m working in. – Barbara Kruger

93688. As with the Princess Di crash, which sent the media on the most insane feeding frenzy. From the moment of the crash, the pornography of sentiment never let up. – Barbara Kruger

93689. Although my art work was heavily informed by my design work on a formal and visual level, as regards meaning and content the two practices parted ways. – Barbara Kruger

93690. All the gossip and craziness becomes a kind of sustained narrative which, in turn, can become history. It’s scary. – Barbara Kruger

93691. I had to figure out how to bring the world into my work. – Barbara Kruger

93692. I want people to be drawn into the space of the work. And a lot of people are like me in that they have relatively short attention spans. So I shoot for the window of opportunity. – Barbara Kruger

93693. Warhol’s images made sense to me, although I knew nothing at the time of his background in commercial art. To be honest, I didn’t think about him a hell of a lot. – Barbara Kruger

93694. You know, one of the only times I ever wrote about art was the obituary of Warhol that I did for the Village Voice. – Barbara Kruger

93695. What makes the production of my work so expensive? The whole installation thing – the construction, the objects, the technology. It really adds up. – Barbara Kruger

93696. I’m an artist who works with pictures and words. Sometimes that stuff ends up in different kinds of sites and contexts which determine what it means and looks like. – Barbara Kruger

93697. I try to deal with the complexities of power and social life, but as far as the visual presentation goes I purposely avoid a high degree of difficulty. – Barbara Kruger

93698. I’d always been a news junkie, always read lots of newspapers and watched the Sunday morning news shows on TV and felt strongly about issues of power, control, sexuality and race. – Barbara Kruger

93699. I’m living my life, not buying a lifestyle. – Barbara Kruger

93700. I’m trying to deal with ideas about histories, fame, hearsay, and how public identities are constructed. – Barbara Kruger

93701. I’ve always thought that it’s good to watch the news to find out what everybody else is looking at and believing, if only because that’s how consensus is constructed. – Barbara Kruger

93702. If most American cities are about the consumption of culture, Los Angeles and New York are about the production of culture – not only national culture but global culture. – Barbara Kruger

93703. It’s good to keep in mind that prominence is always a mix of hard work, eloquence in your practice, good timing and fortuitous social relations. Everything can’t be personalized. – Barbara Kruger

93704. Listen: our culture is saturated with irony whether we know it or not. – Barbara Kruger

93705. Look, we’re all saddled with things that make us better or worse. This world is a crazy place, and I’ve chosen to make my work about that insanity. – Barbara Kruger

93706. Prominence is cool, but when the delusion kicks in it can be a drag. Especially if you choose to surround yourself with friends and not acolytes. – Barbara Kruger

93707. There are so many moments and works that influence us in what we do. Movies, music, TV and, most importantly, the profound everydayness of our lives. – Barbara Kruger

93708. There’s a moment of recognition. It’s that white-light kind of stuff that just “works.” I love that. And you know it when it happens, whether it’s a movie, music, a building, a book. – Barbara Kruger

93709. Things change and work changes. Right now I like the idea of enveloping a space and getting messages across that connect to the world in ways that seem familiar but are different. – Barbara Kruger

93710. The script was very explicit about the nudity that was supposed to be in the movie. Actually, they don’t show everything we shot. They would cut here and it was floored. It was very embarrassing. – Diane Kruger

93711. What I really tried to do with Helen was make her show this sad side of her. She was married off at 16, was so young and living in this castle that can’t leave because of how she looks, and married to a man she hates and three times her age. – Diane Kruger

93712. I think they went with the idea that people know the story pretty much- knowing that he’s going to take her when she’s going to go with him. Also, the movie is really focused on Achilles and Hector and their battles. – Diane Kruger

93713. But quite honestly, personally, I was much more concerned – I mean, there’s not much I can do about my appearance obviously other than spending four hours in hair and makeup. – Diane Kruger

93714. Her beauty didn’t do her any good and she couldn’t use it in any positive way or manipulative way. I just hope that people will look and see and believe in that hope of love, that hope of freedom, even if it was just for a limited time. – Diane Kruger

93715. I don’t know how you prepare for something like that. I cannot imagine living in a fishbowl like that. I don’t live here so I don’t know it will be that bad anyway because I live in Paris and we don’t have that sort of phenomenon there. So I don’t know, we’ll see what happens. – Diane Kruger

93716. I love Nic Cage. He was so much fun to work with. – Diane Kruger

93717. I made a French film called “Merry Christmas” which is a very European film. It’s a World War I piece. – Diane Kruger

93718. I really feel like the first day I went to drama school and I went up on stage, that I found my vocation. It’s kind of a cliched thing to say but I really feel like it was what I was meant to do. – Diane Kruger

93719. The only song I can sing is “Lady in Red” so that must tell you how great it must have been. – Diane Kruger

93720. I would do anything for a part, nearly anything. Being in movies doesn’t mean being pretty. – Diane Kruger

93721. It must have been so impossible to think about it and dare to do that, so they feel compassionate for her. I don’t think the movie would work otherwise. – Diane Kruger

93722. It’s quite a famous story that takes place on Christmas Eve, and the Germans, French, and Scottish are trying to make peace one night and they bury their dead and they play football. I play a German opera singer, in German, which I never have so I am really excited about that. – Diane Kruger

93723. Looking back at it now, I really feel like it was a gift because I don’t know if I have the talent to become a prima ballerina. It’s such a hard job to have. I don’t have any regrets about it. – Diane Kruger

93724. Orlando’s a really cool guy. They hired him for “Lord of the Rings” out of drama school. He’s very new at this still and doesn’t have a lot of experience. So we were in this together and we’ve tried to help each other out. We felt very equal which was good. – Diane Kruger

93725. I play a curator, the most American part you can think of. My work is to protect the Declaration of Independence. I work at the National Archives in Washington. – Diane Kruger

93726. The problem isn’t that people don’t understand how good things are. It’s that they know, from personal experience, that things really aren’t that good. – Paul Krugman

93727. I admit it: I had fun watching right-wingers go wild as health reform finally became law. – Paul Krugman

93728. Social Security is a social insurance program – it is not designed to be the same thing as a 401(k). – Paul Krugman

93729. If you’re playing for the Kansas City Royals about all you can do is beat your head against the wall. – John Kruk

93730. So many shows out there dumb-down the country. It’s so admirable to be part of a show that wants people to think. – David Krumholtz

93731. It’s really cool to know that you’ve put something together that isn’t for a particular audience. It’s so often that a TV show can really only speak to one sect of the population, and this really is something that appeals to a worldwide fan base. People who are into the pursuit of knowledge. Their reaction has meant the world to us. – David Krumholtz

93732. What’s great is that because math is such a universal language, really, our fans come in all shapes and sizes, all ages and genders and races and backgrounds and cultures. – David Krumholtz

93733. The role of Charlie Eppes has changed me. I never imagined I would play a role like this. I lost some weight, grew my hair and now every woman in America over 40 wants to date me. It’s their daughters I want to convince. The truth is all this talk makes me blush. Me, I look in the mirror and all I see is this Jewish kid from Queens. – David Krumholtz

93734. My parents went crazy when they found out that I had gotten the part in Conversations With My Father! I’d never given acting a thought. They were proud of me and very encouraging. – David Krumholtz

93735. Charlie’s not your conventional mathematician… we sexed him up a little bit. – David Krumholtz

93736. Shooting this show is pretty intense. You lose your life. But I have no life, so it’s perfect! – David Krumholtz

93737. If you’re going to start with melody you’ll need some tympani, I think. – Gene Krupa

93738. Well I guess I like variety pretty much, but I do enjoy this work very much. Particularly with Buddy on the gig, we get a chance to knock each other out It’just wonderful. – Gene Krupa

93739. When I speak of natural drummers I’m talking about guys that are playing with the talent God gave ’em. – Gene Krupa
