Copy
Memorial Day is all... Memorial Day is all about celebrating the lives of the men and women who paid the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country. The United States is made great because of their heroism. Their lives are remembered, honored, and celebrated by all of us, including the friends, family, and fellow service members who knew them best.
Copy
Men have had every... Men have had every advantage of us in telling their own story. Education has been theirs in so much higher a degree; the pen has been in their hands. I will not allow books to prove anything.
Copy
Models used to describe... Models used to describe and predict inflation commonly distinguish between changes in food and energy prices - which enter into total inflation - and movements in the prices of other goods and services - that is, core inflation.
Copy
Mummy weighed sweets and... Mummy weighed sweets and nuts so that everyone would get exactly the same amount. During the year, everything is measured roughly, but at Christmas, it has to be absolutely fair. That's why it's such a strenuous time.
Copy
My dad likes to... My dad likes to recite the story of 'Pablo the Donkey' before dinner to teach us the real meaning of Christmas. Every year, it's the same; every year, we cringe!
Copy

Copy
My parents split before... My parents split before my fifth birthday, and I moved with Mom and my three siblings to her native Oahu.
Copy
My parents were born... My parents were born in 1906 and 1907. I think the experience of the Depression greatly influenced the way they thought about the world.
Copy
My parents were engineers.... My parents were engineers. In the 1970s, they came to the United States as refugees from Uganda. Seeing everything this country did for my family inspired me to want to give back through public service.
Copy
My sister will die... My sister will die over and over again for the rest of my life. Grief is forever. It doesn't go away; it becomes a part of you, step for step, breath for breath. I will never stop grieving Bailey because I will never stop loving her. That's just how it is. Grief and love are conjoined, you don't get one without the other. All I can do is love her, and love the world, emulate her by living with daring and spirit and joy. 
Copy
Nothing is as peaceful... Nothing is as peaceful as when Christmas is over, when one has been forgiven for everything and can be normal again.
Copy
Now, a lot of... Now, a lot of what we are doing right now, quite frankly, is because of what happened on Christmas. Many of the things were kind of in the works. We were already planning, for example, the purchase and deployment of advanced imaging technology. You call them body scanners. We call them AITs (Advanced Imaging Technologies).
Copy
On the morning, Daddy... On the morning, Daddy and I get up at six o'clock because Christmas trees must be bought in the dark. We walk to the other end of town, as the big harbour is just the right setting for buying a Christmas tree. We spend hours choosing, looking at every branch suspiciously. It's always cold.
Copy
Our universities and museums... Our universities and museums are respected around the country.
Copy
Our youth deserve the... Our youth deserve the opportunity to complete their high school and college education, free of early parenthood. Their future children deserve the opportunity to grow up in financially and emotionally stable homes. Our communities benefit from healthy, productive, well-prepared young people.
Copy
People in my family... People in my family and camp who grew up listening to rap music love 'We Are Young.' I've heard it play at weddings. I've heard it in graduation parties. It's a big idea and big song.
Copy
People tend to put... People tend to put entertainers on pedestals. We're human beings, just like you. You may see us smiling, and whether we have money or not, we still have bills to pay, we still have our stresses. I think a lot of people want to focus on others' shortcomings to make themselves feel better. And it's a very sad thing.
Copy
Playing is just about... Playing is just about feeling. Playing isn't necessarily about misery. Playing isn't necessarily about happiness. But it's just about letting yourself feel all those things that you have already on the inside of you, but you're all the time trying to push them aside because they don't make for polite conversation or something.
Copy
Read something of interest... Read something of interest every day - something of interest to you, not to your teacher or your best friend or your minister/rabbi/priest. Comics count. So does poetry. So do editorials in your school newspaper. Or a biography of a rock star. Or an instructional manual. Or the Bible.
Copy
Revolutions just spread blood.... Revolutions just spread blood. Evolution - this is something that changes in the long term.
Copy
Sad music, I always... Sad music, I always thought, is more beautiful than other music. But at the same time, I am in my personal life a very happy guy. I have a sense of humor. I am not the kind of depressed guy all the time brooding. No. I am very enthusiastic about things.
Copy
Scientists have demonstrated that... Scientists have demonstrated that dramatic, positive changes can occur in our lives as a direct result of facing an extreme challenge - whether it's coping with a serious illness, daring to quit smoking, or dealing with depression. Researchers call this 'post-traumatic growth.'
Copy

Copy
The House Republican leadership... The House Republican leadership has simply run out of ideas.
Copy
The more I know... The more I know of the world, the more I am convinced that I shall never see a man whom I can really love. I require so much! 
Copy
The only siblings I... The only siblings I have are half-siblings. My nuclear family would have been an extra-suffocating threesome. Instead, I have an interesting brother and sister, in-laws, and darling nephews.
Copy
The only thing I... The only thing I like about air travel is it gives me time to read.
Copy
The phrase 'working mother'... The phrase 'working mother' is redundant.
Copy
'The Taxi Ride,' from... 'The Taxi Ride,' from my second album, is one people want to hear a lot. I'm consciously trying to walk on the sunny side of the street, to really lift myself into a place of greater positivity, and that's a sad song.
Copy
The tree I had... The tree I had in the garden as a child, my beech tree, I used to climb up there and spend hours. I took my homework up there, my books, I went up there if I was sad, and it just felt very good to be up there among the green leaves and the birds and the sky.
Copy
There is nothing I... There is nothing I would not do for those who are really my friends. I have no notion of loving people by halves, it is not my nature.
Copy
There is nothing incompatible... There is nothing incompatible about laughter and demons, nor about athletic achievement and depression. Mike Flanagan made me laugh, too. But mostly, he made me brave.
Copy
There's video footage of... There's video footage of my 10th birthday where I'm wearing, like, a little pink T-shirt. Then my dad comes in brandishing a copy of 'Eraserhead,' going, 'Look what we've got for tonight!'
Copy
Things like depression and... Things like depression and obesity are global challenges.
Copy
To be fond of... To be fond of dancing was a certain step towards falling in love.
Copy
Travel, which was once... Travel, which was once either a necessity or an adventure, has become very largely a commodity, and from all sides we are persuaded into thinking that it is a social requirement, too.
Copy
True leadership isn't about... True leadership isn't about having an idea. It's about having an idea and recruiting other people to execute on this vision.
Copy
We, the American people,... We, the American people, owe the nation's police officers our deepest gratitude, our best efforts, and our strong support, for they have done so much for us against such great odds.
Copy
When I look back... When I look back over my life it's almost as if there was a plan laid out for me - from the little girl who was so passionate about animals who longed to go to Africa and whose family couldn't afford to put her through college. Everyone laughed at my dreams. I was supposed to be a secretary in Bournemouth.
Copy
When I talk about... When I talk about sad things, I talk about sad things.
Copy
When I was a... When I was a kid, we would get McDonalds on Christmas Eve, and that was a big deal because the closest one to the south side of Chicago was a 35 minute drive away. I remember opening the bag and smelling those fries, and even now when I smell them, it reminds me of Christmas Eve.
Copy
When I was diagnosed... When I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder the year I turned 50, it was certainly a shock. But as a journalist, knowing a little bit about a lot of things, I didn't suffer the misconception that depression was all in my head or a mark of poor character. I knew it was a disease, and, like all diseases, was treatable.
Copy
When one's dead, one's... When one's dead, one's dead... This squirrel will become earth all in his time. And still later on, there'll grow new trees from him, with new squirrels skipping about in them. Do you think that's so very sad?
Copy
When we talk to... When we talk to God, we're praying. When God talks to us, we're schizophrenic.
Copy
When you see things... When you see things upside down, the ego can be extraordinarily funny; it's absurd. But it's tragic at the same time.
Copy
Without music, life would... Without music, life would be a blank to me.
Copy
You don’t go to... You don’t go to university so you can punch a clock. You go to university so you can be in a position to make a difference.
Copy
You must be the... You must be the best judge of your own happiness.
