The debt limits have to come down. The whole world of debt has to be changed as far as this country is concerned. We have to create jobs and we have to create them rapidly because if we don't things are just going to head in a direction that's going to be almost impossible to recover from.

Donald Trump

A conception not reducible to the small change of daily experience is like a currency not exchangeable for articles of consumption, it is not a symbol but a fraud.

George Santayana

Television has changed the American child from an irresistable force to an immovable object.

Laurence J. Peter

If any man claims the Negro should be content... let him say he would willingly change the color of his skin and go to live in the Negro section of a large city. Then and only then has he a right to such a claim.

Robert Kennedy

If you accept the expectations of others especially negative ones then you never will change the outcome.

Michael Jordan

I'm sorry it's true. Having children really changes your view on these things. We're born we live for a brief instant and we die. It's been happening for a long time. Technology is not changing it much - if at all.

Steve Jobs

Work and struggle and never accept an evil that you can change.

Andre Gide

If Phil and Tex feel like making a change would be better for the team that's what we will do. We trust them wholeheartedly.

Kobe Bryant

The truth is that we can learn to condition our minds bodies and emotions to link pain or pleasure to whatever we choose. By changing what we link pain and pleasure to we will instantly change our behaviors.

Tony Robbins

People got insights into what was bothering them but they hardly did a damn thing to change.

Albert Ellis

Leo Tolstoy

Any revival in which I am involved is liable to change.

Tom Stoppard

It is often when night looks darkest it is often before the fever breaks that one senses the gathering momentum for change when one feels that resurrection of hope in the midst of despair and apathy.

Hillary Clinton

I do not believe in an afterlife although I am bringing a change of underwear

Woody Allen

Human beings are the only animal that thinks they change who they are simply by moving to a different place. Birds migrate but it's not quite the same thing.

Doug Coupland

What starts the process really are laughs and slights and snubs when you are a kid. If your anger is deep enough and strong enough you learn that you can change those attitudes by excellence personal gut performance.

Richard M. Nixon

Sweet is the scene where genial friendship plays the pleasing game of interchanging praise.

Oliver Wendell Holmes

If you realize that all things change there is nothing you will try to hold on to. If you are not afraid of dying there is nothing you cannot achieve.

Lao Tzu

I personally think it would be better if the NYSE remained as a neutral not-for-big-profit institution. The exchange has done a very good job over the centuries. It's one of the most important institutions in the world. The enemy of investment is activity.... I know the American investor will not be better off if volume doubles on the NYSE and I know the NYSE will be trying to figure out how to do that if it is trying to maximize its own earnings per share. GM or IBM will not earn more money if their stock turns over more actively but a for-profit NYSE will.

Warren Buffett

My desire to curtail undue freedom of speech extends only to such public areas as restaurants airports streets hotel lobbies parks and department stores. Verbal exchanges between consenting adults in private are as of little interest to me as they probably are to them.

James Arthur Baldwin

A state is not a mere society having a common place established for the prevention of mutual crime and for the sake of exchange...Political society exists for the sake of noble actions and not of mere companionship.


Favor comes because for a brief moment in the great space of human change and progress some general human purpose finds in him a satisfactory embodiment.

Franklin D. Roosevelt

The pessimist complains about the wind, the optimist expects it to change, the realist adjusts the sails.

William Arthur Ward

Everything is changing. People are taking their comedians seriously and the politicians as a joke.
