In my view of the present aspect of affairs, there is no need of bloodshed and war. There is no necessity for it.

You always do what you want to do. This is true with every act. You may say that you had to do something, or that you were forced to, but actually, whatever you do, you do by choice. Only you have the power to choose for yourself.
Without ethics, man has no future. This is to say, mankind without them cannot be itself. Ethics determine choices and actions and suggest difficult priorities.

My dad used to say, ‘You wouldn’t worry so much about what people thought about you if you knew how seldom they did.
I have no right, by anything I do or say, to demean a human being in his own eyes. What matters is not what I think of him; it is what he thinks of himself. To undermine a man’s self-respect is a sin.
Talk low, talk slow and don’t say too much.
I would say to always follow your dream. And dream big because my whole career, including any of the things that I’ve accomplished, I never thought in a million years that I would be here. So it just proves that once you believe in yourself, and you put your mind to something, you can do it.
Imagine all the people living life in peace. You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I hope someday you’ll join us, and the world will be as one.
I always laugh and say I met God on the way up, and I got to know him on the way down. And so, as I’m crashing and losing everything, a lot of people run to God when they are struggling. And I was no exception.
Fame usually comes to those who are thinking about something else – very rarely to those who say to themselves, ‘Go to, now, let us be a celebrated individual!’.
When you say ‘control freak‘ and ‘OCD’ and ‘organized,’ that suggests someone who’s cold in nature, and I’m just not. Like, I’m really open when it comes to letting people in. But I just like my house to be neat, and I don’t like to make big messes that would hurt people.
When you are trying to impress people with words, the more you say, the more common you appear, and the less in control. Even if you are saying something banal, it will seem original if you make it vague, open-ended, and sphinxlike.
I can honestly say that I am open to love in any way. I guess that makes me bisexual.
To say ‘I love you’ one must first be able to say the ‘I.’

What I always say is, ‘Do every job you’re in like you’re going to do it for the rest of your life, and demonstrate that ownership of it.’
Yes, I guess you could say I am a loner, but I feel more lonely in a crowed room with boring people than I feel on my own.
I always say, you never know how much your parents loved you until you have a child to love.
We can choose to wake up and grumble all day and be bitter and angry and judge others and find satisfaction in others doing bad instead of good. Or we can we wake up with optimism and love and say, ‘Just what is this beautiful day going to bring me?’
To say the word Romanticism is to say modern art – that is, intimacy, spirituality, color, aspiration towards the infinite, expressed by every means available to the arts.
When you see something that is not right, not fair, not just, you have to speak up. You have to say something; you have to do something.
The medium is the message. This is merely to say that the personal and social consequences of any medium – that is, of any extension of ourselves – result from the new scale that is introduced into our affairs by each extension of ourselves, or by any new technology.
Once you say you’re going to settle for second, that’s what happens to you in life.
They say such nice things about people at their funerals that it makes me sad that I’m going to miss mine by just a few days.

Even if the government spends itself into bankruptcy and the economy still does not recover, Keynesians can always say that it would have worked if only the government had spent more.
Every morning that I wake up and I’m breathing, I can feel it and take a moment to say, you know, ‘Thank God I’m alive for another day.’
I never regret or sit back and think that I shouldn’t have said something. There are a lot of people who tell me that you shouldn’t say this or that or should keep quiet, and I really think that I can either be true to my conscience or can live a fake life by staying quiet.
I’d rather try and fail than not try at all, as they say.
I cannot say for certain if there is such a thing as love at first sight, but I do know that the moment I first glimpsed Winnie Nomzamo, I knew that I wanted to have her as my wife.
Being a Punjabi, it is very hard to say this, but Punjabi food is very overrated.
If you want to be a real human being – a real woman, a real man – you cannot tolerate things which put you to indignation, to outrage. You must stand up. I always say to people, ‘Look around; look at what makes you unhappy, what makes you furious, and then engage yourself in some action.’
Solemnity is proper in church, but things that are proper in church are not necessarily proper outside, and vice versa. For example, I can say a prayer while washing my teeth, but that does not mean I should wash my teeth in church.
When you are in the public eye, in the name of public service, you have to understand that the more people know about you, and the more people say they want to support you, the more you have to work even harder to uphold that trust.
‘Perfection’ to me is, I walk away from a situation and say, ‘I did everything I could do right there. There was nothing more that I could do.’ I was a hundred percent, like the meter was at the top. There was nothing else I could have done. You know? Like, I worked as hard as I possibly could have. That’s perfection.
If it is not right do not do it; if it is not true do not say it.
Each day has a story to – deserves to be told, because we are made of stories. I mean, scientists say that human beings are made of atoms, but a little bird told me that we are also made of stories.
I just change with the times. I really don’t have a say in what’s going on. Music was here before me.
Perception often lags behind reality, and I can say from experience that the vast majority of public officials in Louisiana are much better than our reputation holds us to be.
People say money ain’t nothing; money is basically everything.
I believe alien life is quite common in the universe, although intelligent life is less so. Some say it has yet to appear on planet Earth.
There’s a reason poets often say, ‘Poetry saved my life,’ for often the blank page is the only one listening to the soul’s suffering, the only one registering the story completely, the only one receiving all softly and without condemnation.

What I treasure the most is people coming up to me in the elevator and saying, ‘You really did a great job‘: neighbours who congratulate for a job well done or little fans who hug me and say they want to be like me.
If I’m sure of a person and his potential in politics, and if I know he will live up to his promises, I wouldn’t mind campaigning for him. I believe in the dictum, ‘never say never.’ You never know, I might end up joining politics.
They say a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, but it’s not one half so bad as a lot of ignorance.
Some men see things as they are, and say why. I dream of things that never were, and say why not.
We are under a Constitution, but the Constitution is what the judges say it is, and the judiciary is the safeguard of our property and our liberty and our property under the Constitution.

Do not say a little in many words but a great deal in a few.
The first step is you have to say that you can.
I like to say, ‘Once a dancer, always a dancer.’ In everything – the way you walk, the way you move, the way you talk, the way you sit – everything is just, you’ve been trained a certain way your whole life, so it’s a bit muscle memory.
What I couldn’t say verbally I was able to express physically through the guitar.
Don’t listen to what the Communists say, but look at what they do.
We are not to give credit to the many, who say that none ought to be educated but the free; but rather to the philosophers, who say that the well-educated alone are free.

When I go back to Texas, I travel the state, and I see people all the time who come up to me, men and women across Texas, and they grab me by the shoulder, and they’re afraid. They say, ‘Ted, you know, I just lost my health insurance. I got a child with diabetes. I’m scared. Please stop this from happening.’
In 50 years, I don’t think you’re gonna look back at 2006 and say, ‘The good old days.’
If you want to get each individual‘s honest opinion, you don’t want that opinion to be influenced by others who are present, much less allow a group to coordinate what they are going to say.
People don’t care about what someone says about you in a movie – or even what you say, right? They care about what you build. And if you can make something that makes people’s life better, then that’s something that’s really good.
We’re going to fight racism not with racism, but we’re going to fight with solidarity. We say we’re not going to fight capitalism with black capitalism, but we’re going to fight it with socialism.
So long as the system of competition in the production and exchange of the means of life goes on, the degradation of the arts will go on; and if that system is to last for ever, then art is doomed, and will surely die; that is to say, civilization will die.
Experts on romance say for a happy marriage there has to be more than a passionate love. For a lasting union, they insist, there must be a genuine liking for each other. Which, in my book, is a good definition for friendship.
I do not agree with what you have to say, but I’ll defend to the death your right to say it.
Being a nice person is about courtesy: you’re friendly, polite, agreeable, and accommodating. When people believe they have to be nice in order to give, they fail to set boundaries, rarely say no, and become pushovers, letting others walk all over them.
But I can say that life is good to me. Has been and is good. So I think my task is to be good to it. So how do you be good to life? You live it.
A lasting marriage, they say, is one where the two reach for different sections of the Sunday paper. Me, I go right for the obituaries, just like those very elderly characters in Muriel Spark‘s spooky novel, ‘Memento Mori.’
My number one thing? Don’t overleverage yourself. Don’t say you can do something when you really can’t.
It sounds strange to say, but someone’s bad luck is sometimes the happiness of the other.
Technology gives us power, but it does not and cannot tell us how to use that power. Thanks to technology, we can instantly communicate across the world, but it still doesn’t help us know what to say.
If I could talk to my younger self, I would just say that the path to great things is filled with a lot of stumbles, suffering, and challenges along the way. But if you have the right attitude and know that hard times will pass – and you get up each time – you will reach your destination.
You always risk people misunderstanding you when you say anything.
You can’t judge a book by its cover until you open up and read it. There are going be a million stories out there, true or not true. I say get to know me first before you judge me.
I say, beware of all enterprises that require new clothes, and not rather a new wearer of clothes.
That’s the beauty of coaching. You get to touch lives, you get to make a difference. You get to do things for people who will never pay you back and they say you never have had a perfect day until you’ve done something for someone who will never pay you back.
You can’t defend the indefensible – anything you say sounds self-serving and hypocritical.
Things present themselves to you, and it’s how you choose to deal with them that reveals who you are. We all say a lot of things, don’t we, about who we are and how we think. But in the end it’s your actions, how you respond to circumstance that reveals your character.
Our job as gay people was to come out, to be visible – to live in the truth, as I say – to get out of the lie.

I always say: ‘Share your happiness with the world, give other people that happiness and let it come back,’ but some things make me question it. I don’t know if I want some people to know that I am happy. I think a lot of people want to take it away from you, and that’s really scary.
If my critics saw me walking over the Thames they would say it was because I couldn’t swim.
When people say they prefer organic food, what they often seem to mean is they don’t want their food tainted with pesticides and their meat shot full of hormones or antibiotics. Many object to the way a few companies – Monsanto is the most famous of them – control so many of the seeds we grow.
As we say in the hood, I’m a stoop kid.
We do not say: Being is, time is, but rather: there is Being and there is time.

Say what you will, ‘tis better to be left than never to have been loved.
I want to be able to look back and say, ‘I’ve done everything I can, and I was successful.’ I don’t want to look back and say I should have done this or that. I’d like to change things for the younger generation of swimmers coming along.
People always say that I didn’t give up my seat because I was tired, but that isn’t true. I was not tired physically… No, the only tired I was, was tired of giving in.
Every day, I wake up and say, ‘Good Morning, Jesus.’
I can honestly say – and it’s a big surprise to me – that I have never had a dream about being on the moon.
I wouldn’t say I was the best kid but I always had a good heart.
If I say something, I mean it. If I promise something, best as I can, I’m going to follow through. If I say I have your back, I genuinely mean it.
It isn’t what they say about you, it’s what they whisper.
I tend to be so lost in the work that I don’t notice the weather. My partner will come home and say, ‘Beautiful day, wasn’t it?’ and I’ll say, ‘Was it?’ as I won’t have noticed the real world at all.
I wouldn’t say I was the best manager in the business. But I was in the top one.

I will remember this day for the rest of my life. There is nothing you can say. It’s just like you won the match after the earthquake and it just feels great.
To say that a work of art is good, but incomprehensible to the majority of men, is the same as saying of some kind of food that it is very good but that most people can’t eat it.
Vulnerability is the essence of romance. It’s the art of being uncalculated, the willingness to look foolish, the courage to say, ‘This is me, and I’m interested in you enough to show you my flaws with the hope that you may embrace me for all that I am but, more important, all that I am not.’
You may say, ‘Well, dragons don’t exist.’ It’s, like, yes they do – the category ‘predator‘ and the category ‘dragon‘ are the same category. It absolutely exists. It’s a superordinate category. It exists absolutely more than anything else. In fact, it really exists.
You can’t really say what is beautiful about a place, but the image of the place will remain vividly with you.
You’re never as good as everyone tells you when you win, and you’re never as bad as they say when you lose.

Why lie? I’m not going to be a hypocrite and say the opposite of what I think, like some others do.
From my own experience, I want to say that you should follow your heart, and the mind will follow you. Believe in yourself, and you will create miracles.
First impressions matter. Experts say we size up new people in somewhere between 30 seconds and two minutes.
I hate organized religion. I think you have to love thy neighbor as thyself. I think you have to pick your own God and be true to him. I always say ‘him’ rather than ‘her.’ Maybe it’s because of my generation, but I don’t like the idea of a female God. I see God as a benevolent male.
There is nothing in the world, I venture to say, that would so effectively help one to survive even the worst conditions as the knowledge that there is a meaning in one’s life.
Democrats are dumb and Republicans are stupid, but the difference between dumb and stupid is dumb isn’t funny. Dumb is when you say something and the whole room goes, ‘What did he say?’

The man with the best job in the country is the vice-president. All he has to do is get up every morning and say, ‘How is the president?’
Secularism is categorically not saying that the religious may not speak out publicly or have a say in public life. It is about saying that religion alone should not confer a privileged say in public life, or greater influence on it. It really is as simple as that.
My philosophy is: It’s none of my business what people say of me and think of me.
It is easy to say how we love new friends, and what we think of them, but words can never trace out all the fibers that knit us to the old.
There are people out there who hate me and who say I’m arrogant, vain, and whatever. That’s all part of my success. I am made to be the best.
All that stuff about heavy metal and hard rock, I don’t subscribe to any of that. It’s all just music. I mean, the heavy metal from the Seventies sounds nothing like the stuff from the Eighties, and that sounds nothing like the stuff from the Nineties. Who’s to say what is and isn’t a certain type of music?
Sometimes you don’t have to say anything. Silence speaks it all.
People always say that you can’t please everybody. I think that’s a cop-out. Why not attempt it? ‘Cause think of all the people you will please if you try.
People say that money is not the key to happiness, but I always figured if you have enough money, you can have a key made.

I do not think it is an exaggeration to say history is largely a history of inflation, usually inflations engineered by governments for the gain of governments.
It’s really a testament to my parents, because I was active, curious and creative as a child, and my parents nurtured that. But I wouldn’t say that I was a professional child actor at all. I was never the breadwinner of my family.
Experience should be a plus as long as it doesn’t become complacency. If you say, ‘We’re not going to change; we didn’t do it that way before,’ then you’ve become too old.
