Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

Music is really something that makes people whole.

James Laughlin

I think we will always have the impulse towards visual poetry with us, and I wouldn't agree with Bly that it's a bad thing. It depends on the ability of the individual poet to do it well, and to make a shape which is interesting enough to hold your attention.

James Laughlin

I can't tell anybody else how to run their life or their business, but I really believe I've got a good bead on myself.

Pearl S. Buck

To eat bread without hope is still slowly to starve to death.

Dag Hammarskjold

Those who invoke history will certainly be heard by history. And they will have to accept its verdict.

Dag Hammarskjold

The '80s made up for all the abuse I took during the '70s. I outlived all my critics. By the time I retired, everybody saw me as a venerable institution. Things do change.

Whitfield Diffie

We in science are spoiled by the success of mathematics. Mathematics is the study of problems so simple that they have good solutions.

Whitfield Diffie

I have never killed a man, but I have read many obituaries with great pleasure.

Clarence Darrow

Paramahansa Yogananda

The happiness of one's own heart alone cannot satisfy the soul one must try to include, as necessary to one's own happiness, the happiness of others.

Greg Kinnear

There's something in human nature, the trying-to-get-on-with-it quality of people, the struggle to maintain or keep the show going can be exhausting.

Greg Kinnear

As a busy working mom I'm always pressed for time, so a quick and easy beauty routine is key!

Men become civilized, not in proportion to their willingness to believe, but in proportion to their readiness to doubt.

Reince Priebus

We want to repeal the ObamaCare tax. We want to save middle class families from European health care. And that's what we're going to do as a party and that's what Mitt Romney will do on day one.

Reince Priebus

Life goes by really fast, and it seems that there are times when you're burying a lot of friends and family. And then there are times that feel really precious and everybody is doing okay. This is one of those times.

Amy Grant

Adolescence represents an inner emotional upheaval, a struggle between the eternal human wish to cling to the past and the equally powerful wish to get on with the future.

Louise J. Kaplan

People in tough times - it doesn't mean they don't have a great attitude.

Joel Osteen

Stanley Clarke

The point is, technology has empowered so many musicians, you know?

When a finished work of 20th century sculpture is placed in an 18th century garden, it is absorbed by the ideal representation of the past, thus reinforcing political and social values that are no longer with us.

Robert Smithson

Michelle Obama

Clearly this is a tough economic time, and a lot of families are hurting. So when we talk to parents, we talk about small changes for kids and things that don't cost extra money. Like adding water and eliminating sugary drinks and sodas. That's going to save money right there. Or adding a few more vegetables.

Michelle Obama

Gene Fowler

Men are not against you they are merely for themselves.

Spencer Bachus

Today, the technology is there to give early and normally ample warning when a powerful tornado approaches. When a tornado strikes, all of us are at risk.
