Ideas are the great warriors of the world and a war that has no idea behind it is simply a brutality.
I believe that if life gives you lemons you should make lemonade… And try to find somebody whose life has given them vodka and have a party.
The next time you have a thought… let it go.
I was amazed and upset by the looks I got just walking around the studio… It illuminates the ugliness and the beauty that exists within each of us and that’s what this story represents to me.
It’s so interesting how success hits people and how they react to it.
One of the greatest things drama can do at it’s best is to redefine the words we use every day such as love home family loyalty and envy. Tragedy need not be a downer.
That’s the beauty of music. You can take a theme from a Bach sacred chorale and improvise. It doesn’t make any difference where the theme comes from the treatment of it can be jazz.
Everything has beauty but not everyone sees it.
Against the beautiful and the clever and the successful one can wage a pitiless war but not against the unattractive: then the millstone weighs on the breast.
A recent Pew Hispanic survey found that more than 70 percent of illegal immigrants from Mexico are interested in a guest-worker program and then returning home.

World-wide practice of Conservation and the fair and continued access by all nations to the resources they need are the two indispensable foundations of continuous plenty and of permanent peace.
It is not uncommon in modern times to see governments straining every nerve to keep the peace and the people whom they represent with patriotic enthusiasm and resentment over real or fancied wrongs urging them forward to war.
It is to be observed that every case of war averted is a gain in general for it helps to form a habit of peace and community habits long continued become standards of conduct.
Nothing is more important in the preservation of peace than to secure among the great mass of the people living under constitutional government a just conception of the rights which their nation has against others and of the duties their nation owes to others.
The limitation upon this mode of promoting peace lies in the fact that it consists in an appeal to the civilized side of man while war is the product of forces proceeding from man’s original savage nature.
The methods of peace propaganda which aim at establishing peace doctrine by argument and by creating a feeling favorable to peace in general seem to fall short of reaching the springs of human action and of dealing with the causes of the conduct which they seek to modify.
The point of departure of the process to which we wish to contribute is the fact that war is the natural reaction of human nature in the savage state while peace is the result of acquired characteristics.
There is so much of good in human nature that men grow to like each other upon better acquaintance and this points to another way in which we may strive to promote the peace of the world.
Our strategy is one of preventing war by making it self-evident to our enemies that they’re going to get their clocks cleaned if they start one.
I wanted to connect all people who are thinking about peace on Earth.
History proves that all dictatorships all authoritarian forms of government are transient. Only democratic systems are not transient. Whatever the shortcomings mankind has not devised anything superior.
We don’t need a weakened government but a strong government that would take responsibility for the rights of the individual and care for the society as a whole.
I wish to assure you that there can never be any return to the state of armed conflict which existed before our commitment to peace and the democratic process of election under the Lancaster House agreement.
I wish the government and the Minister of Justice would address these legal and constitutional arguments but they refuse to. They want Canadians to go blindly into their brave new world but it is not wise for a society to move blindly in any direction.
I wish that there were more stringent laws to make guns sold anywhere that they’re legal harder to get.
I wish that every human life might be pure transparent freedom.
I wish people would turn off their computers go outside talk to people touch people lick people enjoy each other’s company and smell each other on the rump.
I wish I had coined the phrase ‘tyranny of choice’ but someone beat me to it. The counterintuitive truth is that have an abundance of options does not make you feel privileged and indulged too many options make you feel like all of them are wrong and that you are wrong if you choose any of them.
I wish I could just go tell all the young women I work with all these fabulous women ‘Believe in yourself and negotiate for yourself. Own your own success.’ I wish I could tell that to my daughter. But it’s not that simple.
I wish I could give you a lot of advice based on my experience of winning political debates. But I don’t have that experience. My only experience is at losing them.
I wish I could be as thin as Jessica Simpson. I think she looks gorgeous! I have had Jessica on my show several times and I can tell you that girl is genuine and funny with a great self-deprecating sense of humor.
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.
I will not play tug o’ war. I’d rather play hug o’ war. Where everyone hugs instead of tugs Where everyone giggles and rolls on the rug Where everyone kisses and everyone grins and everyone cuddles and everyone wins.
I will not attempt to deny the reasonableness and necessity of a party war but in carrying on that war all principles and rules of justice should not be departed from.
I will not attack your doctrines nor your creeds if they accord liberty to me. If they hold thought to be dangerous – if they aver that doubt is a crime then I attack them one and all because they enslave the minds of men.
I will continue to work as hard as I can to make this organization proud. Every time I step on the field I will give everything I have and I will leave everything I have on the field every single Sunday.
I went to the bank and asked to borrow a cup of money. They said ‘What for?’ I said ‘I’m going to buy some sugar.’
I went to college at the University of Kansas where I got a degree in political science.
I went to America and got into a band had success had hits in Australia.
I went to a football school which meant that I went to a university that served up education and was simultaneously operating a sports franchise.
I went to a fight the other night and a hockey game broke out.
I wear black skinny-fit jeans – I can’t get away from them. It’s funny because I wore baggy jeans for ages then one day my friend convinced me to try on a skinny pair and I thought they were great.
