Picture Developed

Stars Hundred

Is it not careless to become too local when there are four hundred billion stars in our galaxy alone.

Sources Refreshed

Poetry leads us to the unstructured sources of our beings, to the unknown, and returns us to our rational, structured selves refreshed.

- A. R. Ammons

Financial Fidelity

I am in a traditional financial services business - but we at Fidelity can see that the evolution of technology is setting our industry up for disruption. What if this technology could do for the transfer of value what the Internet did for the transfer of information?

- Abigail Johnson

Boy Charley

Twenty years ago I wanted to move to a nice place so our Charley would grow up a nice boy and learn a profession. But instead we live in a jungle, so he can only be a wild animal. D'you think I picked the East Side like Columbus picked America?

- Abraham Polonsky

Inside Pure

But the West is trying to weaken Islam from outside and inside. They attack our people and invade our countries from outside, and they weaken us from within with ideas like secularism, liberalism and democracy. This is all designed to contaminate our pure Islam.

- Abu Bakar Bashir

Back Classes

I taught a lot of art history, especially Chinese, Japanese, and Indian. But the painting classes came back. The nudes came back. Not so much the still lifes. So now our department is the worst department, partly because it has the worst facilities.

- Ad Reinhardt

Angry Terrorists

When a man sits in our jails for a number of years, and around him friends and family become angry, that is how we create terrorists.

- Ada Yonath

I Think Leaders

I'm always looking, as an actor, for activities. I think it's far more interesting to watch what people do than what they say. You always want to watch behavior, because the dialogue as written by our illustrious leaders is great. Eminently playable.

- Adam Baldwin

Concern However

It makes sense to have cameras in places where terrorism and crime are of particular concern - such as in Times Square or near major bridges and tunnels. It would be more troubling to learn, however, that the government has focused cameras on the front doors of our homes just to keep track of our comings and goings.

- Adam Cohen

Goal Questions

Our goal is to build this up as a knowledge base that anyone can look at. We're not just interested in people answering their friends' one-off questions.

- Adam D'Angelo

Rather Supportive

The opposite of an underminer is a supporter. When colleagues are supportive, they go out of their way to be givers rather than takers, working to enhance our productivity, make us look good, share ideas, and provide timely help.

- Adam Grant

Love About

That's what I love about our music - it'll never be a hit because you can't dance to it.

- Adam Jones

Sound Other

I mean, Tool has a style, but we try to make all our songs sound different from each other.

- Adam Jones

Vibe Communicate

Everyone in Tool is interested in how we present our music. We write a group of songs that have a vibe, energy and feeling, and then we try to pick an image to capture that and communicate a feeling. We want something that adds to the connection with the audience.

- Adam Jones

Powerful Vote

All we have is our vote. But it's powerful.

Country All Americans

- Adam Schiff

Through About

We started the 10/10 objective in 2011, and that time, our turnover was about Rs. 15,000 crore. We would like to have a turnover of Rs. 1,50,000 crore by 2021. This will be through high growth in domestic and international operations as well as through acquisitions.

- Adi Godrej

Resolve Wear

The future is in our power. Let us, then, each morning, resolve to send the day into eternity in such a garb as we shall wish it to wear forever. And at night, let us reflect that one more day is irrevocably gone, indelibly marked.

- Adoniram Judson

Years East

My views of the missionary object are, indeed, different from what they were when I was first set on fire by Buchanan's 'Star in the East' six years ago. But it does not always happen that a closer acquaintance with an object diminishes our attachment and preference.

- Adoniram Judson

Matter Many

No matter how many flaws we have, our God is so forgiving and understanding. He'll never leave you or forsake you. So that brings peace to me.

- Adrian Peterson

Way Before

Affairs are easier of entrance than of exit; and it is but common prudence to see our way out before we venture in.

- Aesop

Devotion Artwork

Artwork is a representation of our devotion to life.

- Agnes Martin

Cause About

In one hotel, the maid who built the fire fainted in our room. Exhaustion was the cause. We talked with her later and learned that she worked 17 hours a day and makes 95 marks a month - about 50 cents.

- Agnes Smedley

Regional Fewer

Now it is time to make historic reassessments in order to transform our region into one of stability, freedom, prosperity, cultural revival and co-existence. In this new regional order there should be less violence and fewer barriers between countries, societies and sects.

Time From Time To Time

We all have our family issues from time to time.

- Aja Naomi King

Experience Been

Studying acting has been personally enriching because it has taught me to take the time to imagine what someone else's life experience might be like. To look deeply at how our pasts and the circumstances of our early childhoods mold us as people.

- Aja Naomi King

Suffering Country

We don't have a major problem right now in our country, and life is normal. Things like unemployment, which the youth are suffering from, and the rate of inflation - these are chronic conditions and we have to solve them.

- Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani

Heroes Got

All of our heroes did silly stuff early and got more serious as time went on. Steve Martin, Adam Sandler, Bill Murray. They got older, wiser, and made different choices.

- Akiva Schaffer

Experience Before

As human beings, we are vulnerable to confusing the unprecedented with the improbable. In our everyday experience, if something has never happened before, we are generally safe in assuming it is not going to happen in the future, but the exceptions can kill you and climate change is one of those exceptions.

- Al Gore

Video Idea

My daughter, who is 7 years old - I have no idea where she learned this - she made a video where she's beat-boxing. We have no idea where the beat-boxing came from, but all of a sudden, there it was. Now we're launched into lyric sheets for every single song that is current. They're all over our house.

- Al Madrigal

Need Some

The truth is, you know, we need our anodynes. You know that word, anodynes? We need that in life some times. A good warm bath can be one for you, or a whatever.

- Al Pacino

Society Raised

In our society leaving baby with Daddy is just one step above leaving the kids to be raised by wolves or apes.

- Al Roker

Existence Undeniable

As I often say, we have come a long way from the days of slavery, but in 2014, discrimination and inequality still saturate our society in modern ways. Though racism may be less blatant now in many cases, its existence is undeniable.

- Al Sharpton

Fact Instructions

In our system, we leave questions of fact to a jury. But to render a verdict, a jury must know the law. For this, we rely upon jury instructions. Instructions are supposed to translate the law into lay terms that the jury can apply to the facts as they determine them.

- Alafair Burke

I Think Behind

Sweetness is the opposite of machismo, which is everywhere - and I really don't get on with machismo. I'm interested in sensitivity and weakness and fear and anxiety because I think that, at the end of the day, behind our masks, that's what we are.

- Alain de Botton

Became Before

When work is not going well, it's useful to remember that our identities stretch beyond what is on the business card, that we were people long before we became workers - and will continue to be human once we have put our tools down forever.

- Alain de Botton

History Destiny

Our history is not our destiny.

- Alan Cohen

Society Guns

The pervasiveness of guns in our society is destroying America.

- Alan Dershowitz

Responsibility Country

Our first responsibility is not to ourselves. Our first responsibility is to our country and to our God.

Critique Lot

A lot of the critique of our growing mechanization was actually at its strongest, and arguably at its most perceptive, during the late '60s.

- Alan Moore

Purpose Die

Who knows for what we live, and struggle, and die? Wise men write many books, in words too hard to understand. But this, the purpose of our lives, the end of all our struggle, is beyond all human wisdom.

- Alan Paton

Sports Yard

Of course, in our grade school, in those days, there were no organized sports at all. We just went out and ran around the school yard for recess.

- Alan Shepard

Independence Stubborn

One single vision fills all minds: that of our independence endangered. One single duty imposes itself upon our wills: the duty of stubborn resistance.

- Albert II of Belgium

Life Very

We have these ambitions that are very hard to accomplish because life puts us in our place. We have this battle with mediocrity.

- Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu

About Lives

From the time we open our eyes, we live in a Steadicam form, and the only editing is when we talk about our lives or remember things.

- Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu

Small About

I gladly accepted the commission but was uncertain about what the end result would be. On the one hand, Cuban music was conquering the world; being heard everywhere, and our small island was already producing one of the popular musical genres of the 20th century.

- Alejo Carpentier

Differences Other

When I was growing up, my mother taught me and my sisters to celebrate each other - there was no room in our household for negativity. She taught us to embrace each other, and this was empowering for us. She also taught us the value of celebrating our differences.

- Alek Wek

I Think Civilized

And I think to be in NATO for the countries of our region, it means more guarantees for us, it means more responsibility for our common security, but it means fulfillment of all standards of civilized world, like protection of human rights and democratic mechanisms.

- Aleksander Kwasniewski

Show Classical

Our first show, 'A Little Nightmare Music,' encompasses a lot of zany humor with beautiful classical music.

- Aleksey Igudesman

Music Scene Classical

It is interesting that our biggest fans are the greatest names of the classical music scene, such as Julian Rachlin, Janine Jansen, Mischa Maisky and Gidon Kremer. They even make guest appearances in our concerts occasionally.

- Aleksey Igudesman

Second Had

In second grade, I told a bunch of kids there was a homeless person living between the portable classrooms outside our school. It caused panic, and the principal had to announce on the P.A. system that no one was living there. I pretended I didn't know who started the rumor.

- Alessia Cara

Pass Massively

In our system of government, an opposition party doesn't have the ability to pass legislation, but it has the ability to massively screw things up.

- Alex Pareene

Compassion Larger

For most people, using the Internet broadens their sense of who 'we' is and actually ends up leaving us in a place of greater compassion and understanding. It leaves us more connected to a larger group of people and more at one with a lot more people in our community.

- Alex Steffen

Different Ways Larger

Climate change is not a discrete issue; it's a symptom of larger problems. Fundamentally, our society as currently designed has no future. We're chewing up the planet so fast, in so many different ways, that we could solve the climate problem tomorrow and still find that environmental collapse is imminent.

- Alex Steffen

Soil Air

Clean air and water, a diversity of animal and plant species, soil and mineral resources, and predictable weather are annuities that will pay dividends for as long as the human race survives - and may even extend our stay on Earth.

- Alex Steffen

Civilization Becoming

We're becoming a planet of a thousand new major cities. The economy of the 21st century is a city-building economy. It's within our power to make it a carbon zero one, too; and to be blunt, civilization depends on our success.

- Alex Steffen

Want Stop

At our age, you don't want to stop.

- Alex Van Halen

Life Break Up

We never intend to lose our jobs, break up with our live-in loves, or face any number of the curveballs life throws our way. But they happen all the same, so have a bailout plan just in case. Sounds corny, but I call this the 'freedom fund' because it gives you the freedom to get out of a jam without climbing into debt.

- Alexa Von Tobel

Very Engaged

The thing that is most important is having people who are involved and engaged with the kids and also are not stressed and can be involved with them. And that's actually not boring and banal. That actually takes a lot of work to make that happen, and it's not something that our society does very well at all.

- Alison Gopnik

Death Movies

To say the Internet is the death of books and movies is like saying someone invented a new, more efficient kind of cup and it heralds the death of coffee - a new improved form of carrying something, which is essentially what the Internet is, should be helpful to our business.

- Alison Owen

Need Sources

We need to manage holistically, embracing all of our science and traditional knowledge - all sources of knowledge. We can do that from the household to government to international relations.

- Allan Savory

More Limited

Humor expands our limited picture frame and gets us to see more than just our problem.

- Allen Klein

Why Nation

We must never forget why we have, and why we need our military. Our armed forces exist solely to ensure our nation is safe, so that each and every one of us can sleep soundly at night, knowing we have 'guardians at the gate.'

- Allen West

Member Fifth

The fans are our fifth member.

- Ally Brooke

Strong Congress

In Congress, I am a strong supporter of the New Apollo Energy Act. This plan would help to establish our energy independence, create jobs, and provide cleaner, reliable, and more affordable energy.

- Allyson Schwartz

Political Issues

I continue to write songs that are topically related to social, political and economic issues of our time, but I also recognize that onstage, I have a lot of fun and audiences have a lot of fun, so I'm trying to package the messages in music and sounds that are fun to perform and fun to listen to.

- Aloe Blacc

Sun Privacy

These displays of affection mean a lot to our family and are a reminder of the heart that my people have. In this time of grief we ask for a little privacy and space to digest this news; our sister was our sun and we are broken by her departure.

- Amaury Nolasco

Surroundings See

We are what we see. We are products of our surroundings.

- Amber Valletta

People Depend

My fear is that we are losing sight of how much we depend on the EPA to protect not just our environment but the people who live in it.

- Amber Valletta

Down By The Time

No one ever sits you down at age eight and says, 'Aminatta, this is what's happened so far.' You have to work it out for yourself, and by the time you do, it's ancient history to many of the players. We're trying to make sense of the past, so we start to excavate our memories.

- Aminatta Forna

Hollywood Bit

Indian actors, because of the format of our stories, need to be good actors, and be able to perform emotional sequences, do a bit of comedy, dance and singing, action, because all of this forms just one film. In many ways I'd say there are greater demands on Indian actors than there are on Hollywood.

- Amitabh Bachchan

Want Right

We all want to do the right thing for our children. We all don't know what that is and we all - you know, you won't know until the future.

- Amy Chua

Needs Each

Each customer has unique deployment needs, and as a result, CIOs value the flexibility that our hybrid cloud offerings provide.

- Amy Hood

Law Like

I actually went to law school with Jim Comey. We were in the same class, and he was respected by our classmates just like he was respected by the agents that he supervised.

- Amy Klobuchar

Shared Civil Servants

As elected officials, we were sent to the halls of government by our neighbors to do their work - and much work needs to be done. Remembering our shared experiences with the people we represent makes us better and more accountable civil servants.

- Amy Klobuchar

Lunch Yogurt

It's an uphill battle to help our kids learn to make good food decisions - particularly when they are too often presented with an a la carte lunch room choice of french fries or yogurt.

- Amy Klobuchar

Laws Taking Advantage

Foreign agents are taking advantage of loopholes in our laws.

- Amy Klobuchar

Through Engagement

Let's be honest: The trade embargo with Cuba hasn't secured our interests or helped the Cuban people. Because the way to promote positive change and better human rights in Cuba is through engagement, not isolation.

- Amy Klobuchar

Mostly Appropriate

The epic implications of being human end in more than this: We start our lives as if they were momentous stories, with a beginning, a middle and an appropriate end, only to find that they are mostly middles.

- Anatole Broyard

Spend Simply

We simply can't spend our way out of a recession.

- Ander Crenshaw

Good See

It was so surreal, having my parents hear the President and First Lady saying to me, 'Good to see you again! We're so proud of you. We watched you on the Grammys and were like, 'That's our girl!'

- Andra Day

About Confluence

Proust is interested in minutiae because life, as he sees it, is seldom ever about things but about our impression of things, not about facts but about the interpretation of facts, not about one particular feeling but about a confluence of conflicting feelings. Everything is elusive in Proust because nothing is ever certain.

- Andre Aciman

Two Some

I went to a nutritionist; my diet is pretty clean, but I wanted to get some more knowledge and understanding in some areas. My two favorite things, Clif Bars and lattes, she just destroyed in our first meeting. Coffee is fine, but soy is the most genetically modified food that we eat.

- Andre Ward

Strong Reach

The nature of music is mysterious and so much so that it generates strong emotions within us. It moves along passages that reach the most intimate areas of our psyche without being tried by prejudices or influences of any kind.

- Andrea Bocelli

Wealthy Aided

Acadia was founded in 1916 by Woodrow Wilson as the first Eastern national park, aided by rich men, often with middle initials, the 'rusticators,' as they were known then, the first of our wealthy out-of-state visitors.

- Alexander Chee

Without Very

It seems very clear to me that we, in the West, cannot afford to continue assuming propriety over the world's resources in a careless, greedy way without paying for it - not only with the lives of our loved ones, but also with our souls.

- Alexandra Fuller

Dangerous Seven

We don't notice that our cells are turning over all the time. You get a completely new composition of cells every seven years, and on the surface, or subjectively, it looks as though you're the same for seven years. It's like a ground - it looks stable, but beneath it, everything is shifting all the time. It's exciting and dangerous.

- Alexandra Kleeman

Culture Like

As a culture, we really like our food passive.

- Alexandra Kleeman

Device

All for one, one for all, that is our device.

- Alexandre Dumas

Settle Our Lives

That attitude that I wouldn't succeed didn't come from my family; it came from school and then the township we lived in. I wasn't going to settle for that, and my mother warned us not to settle for less, to make the most of our lives.

- Alexis Wright

Agriculture Biggest

Second to agriculture, humbug is the biggest industry of our age.

- Alfred Nobel

Hot Big

My parents made no money whatsoever, but they really knew how to see, as artists. So a big adventure might be, on a hot, dreadful day with no place to go, to go out and draw our chickens with pastels. My parents gave me a sense of wonder.

- Ali MacGraw

Back Paragraph

We're well past the end of the century when time, for the first time, curved, bent, slipped, flash forwarded, and flashed back yet still kept rolling along. We know it all now, with our thoughts traveling at the speed of a tweet, our 140 characters in search of a paragraph. We're post-history. We're post-mystery.

- Ali Smith

Forefathers Shown

Our Puritan forefathers, though bitterly denouncing all forms and ceremonies, were great respecters of persons; and in nothing was the regard for wealth and position more fully shown than in designating the seat in which each person should sit during public worship.

- Alice Morse Earle

Weaponry Enslavement

Human beings may well be unable to break free of the dictatorship of greed that spreads like a miasma over the world, but no longer will we be an inarticulate and ignorant humanity, confused by our enslavement to superior cruelty and weaponry.

- Alice Walker

Childhood Unusually

One of the most distinctive evolutionary features of human beings is our unusually long, protected childhood.

- Alison Gopnik
