Grace Napolitano
I know that it’s probably not a good idea for a comedian, especially a satirist, to support a public policy group or a politician.

Sherrilyn Kenyon
We will allow private and religious groups to compete to provide services in every federal, state and local social program.
George W. Bush

Biological determinism is, in its essence, a theory of limits. It takes the current status of groups as a measure of where they should and must be … We inhabit a world of human differences and predilections, but the extrapolation of these facts to theories of rigid limits is ideology.
Stephen Jay Gould
Just as a person who is always asserting that he is too good-natured is the very one from whom to expect, on some occasion, the coldest and most unconcerned cruelty, so when any group sees itself as the bearer of civilization this very belief will betray it into behaving barbarously at the first opportunity.
Simone Weil

Hillary Clinton

John P. Kotter
The pro-gun advocates point to the 2nd amendment of America’s Constitution, citing Americans’ right to bear arms as a protection against tyrants. Pro-Bitcoin advocates want protection against tyrants, too. The difference is how these two groups define tyranny.

On stage you can group 200 people together and scare them or embarrass them or whatever. You can’t do that on TV. You have to use the conventions, that’s why Kevin (Turvey) works so well.
Rik Mayall
If evolution almost always occurs by rapid speciation in small, peripheral isolates, then what should the fossil record look like? We are not likely to detect the event of speciation itself. It happens too fast, in too small a group, isolated too far from the ancestral range.
Stephen Jay Gould
Cultural values are, in themselves, neutral as well as universal, and so much depends on how individuals or ethnic groups use them. Values are influenced by so many factors such as geography, climate, religion, the economy and technology.
F. Sionil Jose
The U.K. has some of the best protections in law for religious groups in the world. They aren’t perfect, but they provide a strong basis for religious groups to be free from fear of discrimination. I’m proud of this because it underpins what is decent about our country.
Sadiq Khan

Alfred Jarry
The quality of your life is a direct reflection of the expectations of your peer group.

Susan Cain
It’s not up to Google, it’s not up to Apple to turn over our personal communications in order to save the country. It’s up to the CIA and it’s up to the FBI to recruit foreign – I mean to recruit human sources, rather, to penetrate these groups.
John Kiriakou

Bell Hooks
It is our grave mistake that for many years we neglected pro-Western groups in order to avoid any friction with the existing rulers.

James M. Buchanan
The social system based on and consonant with the altruist morality-with the code of self-sacrifice- is socialism, in all or any of its variants: fascism, Nazism, communism.

Ayn Rand
The more tightly packed the group, the greater the need for strict social ranks and orders.

Eddie Redmayne
What’s the job of the candidate in this world? The job of the candidate is to raise the money to hire the consultants to do the focus groups to figure out the 30-second answers to be memorized by the candidate. This is stunningly dangerous.
Newt Gingrich

Barbara Kingsolver
We can no longer expect an Intelligence Community that is mostly male and mostly white to be able to monitor and infiltrate suspicious organizations or terrorist groups.
Jane Harman
I’ve always wondered why European politicians as a group seemed brighter than American politicians as a group. Maybe it’s becausemany American politicians have the race issue to fall back on. They become lazy, suspicious of innovative ideas, and as a result American institutions atrophy.

Wanda Sykes
Following the Second World War, we are a country of one ethnicity. After the moving of the borders, after the tragedy of the Holocaust and the murder of Polish Jews, we don’t have large minority groups.
Aleksander Kwasniewski

I think, in America, for a long time you had groups that wanted to be stars more than they wanted to make music.
Tom Petty
The results suggest a helical structure which must be very closely packed containing probably 2, 3 or 4 coaxial nucleic acid chains per helical unit and having the phosphate groups near the outside.
Rosalind Franklin
I’m a big fan of certain new acts. I love any genre of music, and I think it’s really great to see that there are new artists coming through. It’s kinda funny to think that I’m like the old man on campus now. But I’m really happy for groups like One Direction. I think they’re really good guys.
Joe Jonas
Culture is the collective programming of the mind which distinguishes the members of one group from another.

The teacher loses the position of external boss or dictator but takes on that of leader of group activities
John Dewey
We may say that a basic substance is one which has a lone pair of electrons which may be used to complete the stable group of another atom, and that an acid is one which can employ a lone pair from another molecule in completing the stable group of one of its own atoms.
Gilbert N. Lewis
I’m sure everyone knows now that only a few have performed in Madison Square Garden. That list is so small. Now I’m on that list. I’m a part of a very small group, which is unbelievable. You relish in that moment for a second.
Kevin Hart
A movie is painting, it’s photography, it’s literature – because you have to have the screenplay – it’s music. Put a different soundtrack to a comedy and it’s a tragedy. A movie combines all those forms and forces you to pay attention for two hours with a group of people.
Paula Patton
Get the big point of your advertisement into your headline. Use your headline as a hook to reach out and catch the special group of people you are trying to interest.

Barton Gellman
A dynamic praying church must be built from the inside out, employing all four levels of
prayer: the secret closet, the family altar, small group praying and finally, the
congregational setting.
Richard Burr

Jimmy Carr
Man is only a moral being because he lives in society, since morality consists in solidarity with the group, and varies according to that solidarity. Cause all social life to vanish, and moral life would vanish at the same time, having no object to cling to.
Emile Durkheim
Generally speaking, the less privileged groups in democratic society, as they become aware of their interests and their political power, will be found to press for ever more state intervention in practically all fields.
Gunnar Myrdal
The possibility that terrorist groups could obtain weapons of mass destruction should not be dismissed as a fiction. This is a horrific threat the international community should take seriously. As long as these weapons exist, so, too, does the risk of their use – by accident or design.

The cities are the principal home and seat of the human group. They are the coral colony for Man, the collective being.
Alfred Doblin
The most underused, under-appreciated group of people in the world is our youth.

Stockard Channing
Human kindness can be found in all groups, even those which as a whole it would be easy to condemn.
Viktor E. Frankl
The ‘Wall Street Journal’ is quite irate that I rank them with industry front groups and cranks denying climate change. But they have a record whenever industrial pollutants are involved. Look at the ‘Journal”s commentary on acid rain, on the ozone layer, and on climate change.
Sheldon Whitehouse
I was on the central table and we were a very intimate group.
I. K. Gujral
Don’t be an asshole,” the guy snapped as he cracked a freshie. “Oh, right, because two in this group would be overkill.
J.R. Ward
In every political community there are varying shades of political opinion. One of the shadiest of these is the liberals. An outspoken group on many subjects. Ten degrees to the left of center in good times. Ten degrees to the right of center if it affects them personally. Here, then, is a lesson in safe logic.
Phil Ochs
Individuals in very small groups are about the only thing that is free of the disease of the embedded growth obligation.

Alex Abreu
Where are the Robert Redfords and Paul Newmans of my age group? I love James Franco, but where’s the next James Franco? Where are the hunks who can act?
Jennifer Lawrence
Power projects are differently placed to road projects. There’s difference stress across different companies across different groups based on their leverage levels.
Chanda Kochhar
This group right here is one of the most underrated groups in football. We don’t talk enough about this group. Very smart, they don’t leave the field, they play every single down, and they can cover backs and tight ends out of the backfield. This group is special.
Willie McGinest
There’s an African-American professor at a noted Ivy League school who is saying there’s three kinds of white people, and only one of the three different kinds is worth anything, and that they’re so tiny and so small a group that you don’t need to be worried.
Rush Limbaugh

GloZell
Virtually all of Africa’s civil wars were started by politically marginalized or excluded groups.
George Ayittey
Loyalty is an asset, independent and scarce, parceled out among different contestants for power. No ruling government or nonruling group enjoys absolute loyalty – no contestant can have the whole pie.

At one time, due to the reluctance of cult groups to allow members to dialogue with their families and professionals about their involvement (or even to allow families access to a loved one) -“involuntary deprogramming” became the choice of some families as a last resort.
Rick Ross
We have to go into fundamentalist mosques; we have to stop foreign financing of Islamist groups.
Marine Le Pen
People think there’s a single solution to complex problems, and the solution is often making an enemy of a group of people – pulling back and rejecting the other.
Duncan Green
Women’s Studies can amount simply to compensatory history; too often they fail to challenge the intellectual and political structures that must be challenged if women as a group are ever to come into collective, nonexclusionary freedom.
Adrienne Rich
A social group can, indeed must, already exercise ‘leadership’ before winning governmental power (this is indeed one of the principal conditions for the winning of such power); it subsequently becomes dominant when it exercises power, but even if it holds it firmly in its grasp, it must continue to ‘lead’ as well.
Antonio Gramsci
My mother is a retired music teacher. She taught me in high school, and she would take us and put us in these madrigal groups. We would go to a museum or whatever and just perform.
Craig Robinson
Real change occurs from the bottom up; it occurs person to person, and it almost always occurs in small groups and locales and then bubbles up and aggregates to larger vectors of change.
Paul Hawken
The upper echelon of the movie industry is easier to deal with and the work is much easier to accomplish because of this generosity of spirit and confidence that they instill in the group around them.
John Travolta
Even listening to a lot of other music inspires me, too. Like I’ll find something and be like, “I love this group!” And I want to write something that’s kind of like this.
LeAnn Rimes
There are many people who enjoy animal based foods and who have no interest in changing the way they eat. And as you correctly pointed out, animal products are an integral part of some ethnic groups and societies and it would be nearly impossible for them to change thousands of years of traditional eating habits.
Gary Player
These groups within a society can he distinguished according as to whether, like an army or an orchestra, they function as a single body; or whether they are united merely to defend their common interests and otherwise function as separate individuals.
Herbert Read
Whites have been the most subsidized group in the history of the United States and maybe the history of the world, while Blacks were enslaved and were the assets of Whites.
Ishmael Reed
There’s something about being with a group of people who become like family that must be needed in society.
Jacqueline Bisset
I haven’t really decided to be an actor yet! I started doing plays when I was about 15 or 16. I only did it because my dad saw a bunch of pretty girls in a restaurant and he asked them where they came from and they said drama group. He said, ‘Son, that is where you need to go.
Robert Pattinson
Though I may deny poets their monopoly on inspiration, I still place them in a select group of Fortune’s darlings.
Wislawa Szymborska
Sure there are a few good whites just as much as there are a few bad Blacks. However what we are concerned here with is group attitudes and group politics. The exception does not make a lie or the rule – it merely substantiates it.
Steven Biko
Gangs are a group reaction to helplessness.
Jesse Jackson
I don’t like anything unsigned in a newspaper that purports to be the opinion of some group if we don’t know who the group is. It’s laughable to say that The Miami Herald’s editorials or any newspaper’s editorials represent any views other than those of the people writing them, so why don’t we tell everybody who they are?
Dave Barry
In the old world, people used to have to go to focus groups and ask people what they thought. Now, people are writing all over the Web what they think about things.
Susan Wojcicki
I’m into paradoxes. I wanted to make an album about them, but the group told me I was a pretentious fart. They were right.
Brian May
Never underestimate the power of a loosely knit group working for a good cause. All of us who work for peace together, all of us who pray for peace together, are a small minority, but a powerful spiritual fellowship. Our power is beyond our numbers.
Peace Pilgrim
Party politics in modern democratic society means pandering to a wide variety of different groups and sympathizing with their often quite base motives, such as revenge, power, booty, and spoils, to maintain the necessary level of support.
Randal Marlin
My idea of a group decision is to look in the mirror.
Warren Buffett
There were two writer’s unions in those days[ during World War II ] , the studio-friendly guild called the Screen Playwrights, and the more activist Writer’s Guild. The studios were fairly upset that their group wasn’t effective, and they sought to punish the other union by labeling them as Communists.
Jay Roach
I end up feeling like a spy in the house of ethnicity, you know? Because people will talk around me as they would talk around the people in their cultural group. So I get to hear all the secrets and jokes and you know, I’m a part of every community because of the way I look.
Sherman Alexie
I would rather label the whole enterprise of setting a biological value upon groups for what it is: irrelevant, intellectually unsound, and highly injurious.
Stephen Jay Gould

Ali Khamenei
We’ve been astonished by how good groups working together can predict the outcomes of events.
Louis B. Rosenberg
A government at bottom is nothing more than a group of men, and as a practical matter most of them are inferior men. … Yet these nonentities, by the intellectual laziness of men in general … are generally obeyed as a matter of duty (and) assumed to have a kind of wisdom that is superior to ordinary wisdom.
H. L. Mencken
We have to fight all terrorist groups, and not arm one to fight another.
Recep Tayyip Erdogan
We do have Museums of African American Art in the United States, and there is a National Museum of Women’s Art. However, I believe Latinos are best served by displaying their art next to the art of other groups, particularly North American, European, and even Asian artists.
Mari Carmen Ramirez
That, in its essence, is Fascism — ownership of Government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
War had always seemed to me to be a purely human behavior. Accounts of warlike behavior date back to the very first written records of human history; it seemed to be an almost universal characteristic of human groups.
Jane Goodall
I think that, as is the case offline, we should not be tolerant of hate speech, racist comments, or groups that promote hatred or intolerance in any shape or form.
Queen Rania of Jordan
I realise that in an electoral campaign, you don’t want to antagonise large groups which are highly motivated.
Zbigniew Brzezinski
Weary of wily politicians who say one thing and do another, voters and advocacy groups insist presidential contenders commit to the cause du jour in writing, but candidates are foolish to comply. Words matter.
Mark McKinnon
There are people in this world who can wear whale masks and people who cannot, and the wise know to which group they belong.
Tom Robbins
There are a lot of people who don’t think girl groups last very long, but Girls’ Generation wants to break that theory.
Seohyun
We steer clear of fringe political parties or minority groups. We’re not trying to orchestrate a revolution.
Alexander Nix
I had never gone to college, I left school at a really early age, and all of a sudden I’ve got six really great friends hanging out with me every night. And we were a really tight group, and we just had an absolute blast.
Kiefer Sutherland
To a considerable extent we are faced by a technology arms race with terrorists. The communications revolution has made it easier for terrorist groups to reach out to vulnerable individuals with their violent extremist ideology and propaganda. It has also facilitated fundraising, recruitment and training.
Pauline Neville-Jones
I sort of recognize it, as opposed to shaping it. Oh, that’s a good idea, that’s a good line. I wonder where I can use that. And when you get into a rhyme group like ‘not,’ you got a lot of rhymes, you got a lot of choices. The more you do it, the luckier you get.
Paul Simon
What we do in our group is the opposite of the bad effects of globalization. We produce in Italy and in France and we sell to China, when usually it’s the opposite.
Bernard Arnault
There is no such thing as group originality, group creativity or group perspicacity.
Edwin Land
I cannot doubt that women will line up, like the men elected, with the groups whose political thinking and convictions are in accord with their own political convictions.
Edith Rogers
Don’t let the actions of a few determine the way you feel about an entire group. Remember, not all German’s were Nazis.
Erin Gruwell
There’s a group in California that wants to make suicide a capital offense punishable by death. That’s like punishing someone for being on a hunger strike by sending them to bed with no supper.
Bill Engvall
If you are building a culture where honest expectations are communicated and peer accountability is the norm, then the group will address poor performance and attitudes.
Henry Cloud
A Nation… is a group of persons united by a common error about their ancestry, and a common dislike of their neighbors
Karl Deutsch
Obviously any group that has to have funding also needs to get attention to their issues.
Bjorn Lomborg
It is in the long run essential to the growth of any new and high civilization that small groups of men can escape from their neighbors and from their government, to go and live as they please in the wilderness. A truly isolated, small, and creative society will never again be possible on this planet.
Freeman Dyson
We know that we are often judged by the company we keep. We know how influential classmates, friends, and other peer groups can be. If any of our companions are prone to be unrighteous in their living, we are better off seeking new associations immediately.
Joseph B. Wirthlin
The Iraq war was fought by one-half of one percent of us. And unless we were part of that small group or had a relative who was, we went about our lives as usual most of the time: no draft, no new taxes, no changes. Not so for the small group who fought the war and their families.
Bob Schieffer
A lot of groups spend their whole cultural and aesthetic identity trying to move away from Africa, which I think is a mistake. One of the reasons I love Cuba and cultures like that is because they’re not trying to move away from their African roots, they’re trying to embrace them. That’s part of the culture.
Arturo O’Farrill
It’s really hard to design products by focus groups. A lot of times, people don’t know what they want until you show it to them.
Steve Jobs
The venerable Robert E. Lee has taken some vicious hits, as dishonest or misinformed advocates among political interest groups and in academia attempt to twist yesterday’s America into a fantasy that might better service the political issues of today.
Jim Webb
There is nothing inhuman, evil, or irrational which does not give some comfort, provided it is shared by a group.
Erich Fromm
A lot of industry groups have said they support a federal law. They don’t want to have to deal with 50 different state laws.
William Jackson
We’ve got so many different cultural groups in my family that I’ve had to learn to accommodate them in different ways. My father speaks different to my mum. My mum speaks different to my grandmother. Everybody speaks different, so you find you start tweaking your language to be more accessible to people.
Trevor Noah
In order to gain some insight into the forces that elevate certain products to the level of ‘works of art’ it is helpful – among other investigations – to look into the economic and political underpinnings of the institutions, individuals and groups who share in the control of power.
Hans Haacke
We are all basically the same human beings, who seek happiness and try to avoid suffering. Everybody is my peer group. Your feeling “I am of no value” is wrong. Absolutely wrong.
Dalai Lama
There’s like a special group of people that come from different parts of the planet to study with me. It’s nice. I just gave a workshop in Boston at the New England Conservatory, which was really nice.
Charlie Haden
Social distance makes it all the easier to focus on small differences between groups and to put a negative spin on the ways of others and a positive spin on our own.
Daniel Goleman
All Politicians should be required to wear uniforms like Racing Car Drivers with patches showing the donations received from special interest groups so we know who has paid them off!
John Wallace
HIV/AIDS isn’t a top priority for any of the three major LGBT groups in the U.S.: not the HRC, or the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), or the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force (NGLTF) – who together are somewhat pejoratively known as ‘Gay Inc.’
Elizabeth Flock
As a freedom-lover and avid outdoorsman, I understand the importance of protecting the Second Amendment, which has been under attack by liberal special interest groups funded by elitist billionaires.
Thom Tillis
Russia has the largest reserves of natural resources, including iron and natural gas. The market will develop in the long term, and the VW Group will benefit from it.
Martin Winterkorn
Women in my focus groups, they say a bald man is trustworthy. He has nothing to hide.
Kellyanne Conway
How can you hope to build up a nation by fragmenting its politics into opposing camps? Whatever one group builds, the other will endeavour to destroy.
Mohammed Reza Pahlavi
The Center for Public Integrity is the real thing. A group of dedicated people who remember that great journalism is about grit and guts and stamina and razor-sharp instincts. They are, thank heaven, here to stay.
Diane Sawyer
I left Facebook after Facebook groups began appearing about me and suddenly your personal photographs start becoming public property.
Freddie Stroma
That Amendment requires the state to be a neutral in its relations with groups of religious believers and nonbelievers; it does not require the state to be their adversary. State power is no more to be used so as to handicap religions than it is to favor them.
Hugo Black
I belong to the people I love, and they belong to me–they, and the love and loyaty I give them, form my identity far more than any word or group ever could.
Veronica Roth
It is my understanding that some groups who are opposed to visiting our campus are basing their decision on Liberty’s concealed carry policy.
Jerry Falwell, Jr.
Among them, there were Muslims, Christians, and Jews living together. But then violent organizations came, bringing with them many large groups of people from various parts of the world to Palestine.
Hassan Nasrallah
Why am I exactly this and not that being? at this point of unlimited space and in this moment of infinite time? in this group of beings, on this planet? Why do I exist if I could have been without existence?
Stanislaw Ignacy Witkiewicz
I’ll admit I never wanted to be in a band. Then, in X-Factor, they put me in this group and it’s the best thing that ever happened to me.
Leigh-Anne Pinnock
I don’t write for any group. I write to bring about a change in consciousness.
Jeanette Winterson
With my own group I like to keep it loose. They have to counter rather than go with me. When they stop I like to be moving.
Kenneth Rexroth
It’s time to see that there’s no such thing as unity in the Democrat Party, ever. They are a disparate coalition of different groups that have one or two unifying precincts: High taxes, Big Government.
Rush Limbaugh
The active investors will have their returns diminished by a far greater percentage than will their inactive brethren. That means that the passive group – the “know-nothings” – must win.
Warren Buffett
NASA calls stuff nominal instead of phenomenal, like it really is. So I have given up that there is going to be a balance and NASA is going to do certain things and we are finally in a state of existence where small groups of individuals can do extraordinary things, funded by single people.
Peter Diamandis
We plan to pick up another five seats in the Senate and hold the House through redistricting through 2012. And rather than negotiate with the teachers’ unions and the trial lawyers and the various leftist interest groups, we intend to break them.
Grover Norquist
America is a nation of believers, dreamers and strivers that is being led by a group of censors, critics, and cynics.
Donald Trump
This country, the Republic of Indonesia, does not belong to any group, nor to any religion, nor to any ethnic group, nor to any group with customs and traditions, but the property of all of us from Sabang to Merauke!
Sukarno
Zsa Zsa Gabor, the only woman ever to apply for group alimony. Never got a dinner!
Red Buttons
Ben was a great believer in buying a diversified group of securities, so that he limited his risk.
Walter Schloss
I don’t represent a group, a trend or a political party, but rather everyone.
Amr Moussa
Well, I had an immense respect for Cirque du Soleil when I first say them in the ’80s on a television show and just thought, you know, this group is really reinventing the circus, as you know. Because there wasn’t three rings. There were no animals.
Criss Angel
In almost all city governments in America, the small group of people who don’t want change are able to block change.
Alex Steffen
When marginalized groups finally gained access to the ballot, it took time for them to organize around opposition to the specific forms of discrimination and mistreatment that continued to plague them – and longer still for political parties and candidates to respond to such activism.
Stacey Abrams
The United States of America is engaged in a war against an extremist group of folks.
George W. Bush
The door of the Free Exercise Clause stands tightly closed against any government regulation of religious beliefs as such. Government may neither compel affirmation of a repugnant belief, nor penalize or discriminate against individuals or groups because they hold views abhorrent to the authorities.
William J. Brennan
The SS, as such, behaved no more criminally than any other social groups would behave when taking part in political events.
Hans Frank
When I started singing, I was covering Lauryn Hill, Brandy, and all the girl groups of the ’90s. It’s just what I would listen to and what I was singing when anybody asked me to sing for them.
Kehlani
Community is and must be inclusive. The great enemy of community is exclusivity. Groups that exclude others because they are poor or doubters or divorced or sinners or of some different race or nationality are not communities; they are cliques–actually defensive bastions against community.
M. Scott Peck
Up north, you could find these radio stations with no name on the dials that played pre-rock ‘n’ roll things – country blues. We would hear Slim Harpo or Lightnin’ Slim and gospel groups, the Dixie Hummingbirds, the Five Blind Boys of Alabama. I was so far north, I didn’t even know where Alabama was.
Bob Dylan
Duane Allman inspired the group to explore the extended jam format that was already a staple of the Allman Brothers act. Moreover, his ferocious slide playing motivated Clapton to turn in some of the finest guitar performances of his career
Bob Whitlock
I have a group of cafes and coffee shops that I go to regularly. They usually have an area where I can plug in my computer and have a corner seat where I can do a couple hours of writing or whatever, even the noise of the surrounding people walking by. Those things are the things that stimulate me into writing.
Bong Joon-ho
The U.S. is ruled by private interest groups and by the neoconservative ideology that history has chosen the U.S. as the ‘exceptional and indispensable’ country with the right and responsibility to impose its will on the world.
Paul Craig Roberts
If the chain symmetry is maintained in the crystal lattice, the possible occurrence of different space groups is considerably restricted.
Giulio Natta
We went on the opening weekend [of Star Wars], a group of us went out and just popped into a couple theaters just to see people in the theater watching the movie, and it was incredibly gratifying just to see the thing out there being watched by people. And the reaction was more than we could’ve expected.
J. J. Abrams
We felt like we had done as much as you can do with the slasher genre. We were trying to find the next group of scary movies that were ripe for parody.
Keenen Ivory Wayans
You know, a football coach is nothing more than a teacher. You teach them the same subject, and you have a group of new guys every year.
Darrell Royal
Only a group lack of imagination could account for people not wondering what went on in the dark around them.
Charlaine Harris
Law enforcement’s biased view of the Irish lives on in the nickname we still use for the vehicles we use to transport groups of prisoners. It is, after all, the ‘paddy wagon.’ The Irish had tough times, but little compares to the experience on our soil of black Americans.
James Comey
He was visited on a lunar basis by these great unspecific waves of horniness, whereby all women within a certain age group and figure envelope became immediately and impossibly desirable. He emerged from these spells with eyeballs still oscillating and a wish that his neck could rotate through the full 360 degrees.
Thomas Pynchon
Success comes only for those groups that overcome the all-too-human behavioral tendencies that corrupt teams and breed dysfunctional politics within them.
Patrick Lencioni
I started out playing big bands shows and different things. I was with several different small bands and groups, doing comedy and singing, emceeing, and I got a break with a very big star of the late fifties whose name was Tommy Sands.
Hal Blaine
In an improv group and a successful work team, the members play off one another, each person’s contributions providing the spark for the next. Together, the improvisational team creates a novel emergent product, one that’s more responsive to the changing environment.
R. Keith Sawyer
I began like all composers, writing for small groups. Chamber groups.
David Del Tredici
For students who are in the most creative group in America to somehow be presumed to be narrow is just completely meshugga.
Gish Jen
[T]he more the public is confused, the easier it falls prey to doctrines of pseudo-science which may at some future date recieve the backing of politically powerful groups […]a renaissance of German quasi-science paralleled the rise of Hitler.
Martin Gardner
Our albums just tend to be collections of songs really, because we all write in the group, all four of us.
John Deacon
We mystify the art of moviemaking, but it’s not amystical science. You take a good screenplay, put a group togetherand you hammer it out.
Bill Paxton
Now, I’m a dad, I’m an adult. I’ve been solo for 25 years; I’ve been in other people’s groups but I’m solo [in a broader sense]. I stopped comparing myself to other people’s maps when I was maybe 24, really. The trajectory that I’ve gone on is not one that I can compare with anybody else.
Johnny Marr
Coaching is about finding a system that works for your players. There are some underlying principles which are applied in any coaching situation but it’s about picking the lock to get this group of players to play the best volleyball they’re capable of playing for a long period of time.
Hugh McCutcheon
Empowerment of individuals is a key part of what makes open source work, since in the end, innovations tend to come from small groups, not from large, structured efforts.
Tim O’Reilly
When Jesus started His ministry, the very first thing He did was form a small group.
Rick Warren
Single motherhood is a reality for a lot of women in my age group and the time difficulties in their lives are universal.
Nicholas Sparks
We were too rough at the edges to be a pop group.
Roger Daltrey
The powers-that-be understand that to create the appropriate atmosphere for war, it’s necessary to create within the general populace a hatred, fear or mistrust of others regardless of whether those others belong to a certain group of people or to a religion or a nation.
James Morcan
Surround yourself with a really good group of friends that are true and honest and won’t lead you astray and make you compromise who you are as a woman or a young woman.
V V Brown
I know my fan base is a smart group of people.
Aziz Ansari
Education is to learning as tour groups are to adventure.
Richard Saul Wurman
If you are worried about what others might think and about how your position in the group might be jeopardized, then you will never really create anything.
Robert Greene
The political groups who have taken the responsibility to elect Mr. Macron have been discredited.
Marine Le Pen
The challenge of Mosul and Nineveh is the considerable number of ethnic groups, religious sects, tribes, and other elements that make up the province.
David Petraeus
There is no curse equal to the curse of idleness. It destroys the man, the group, the people, or the nation who suffer under it.
J. Reuben Clark
I’ve learned that terror doesn’t happen because some group of people somewhere like Pakistan or Afghanistan simply decide to hate us. It happens because children aren’t being offered a bright enough future that they have a reason to choose life over death.
Greg Mortenson
When I first got into the first-year study after the Cultural Revolution, got into the same school with this group, I wasn’t conscious of the so-called “Fifth Generation.” I didn’t like that kind of study condition because there’s no real, true education there.
Ai Weiwei
With a fascist the problem is never how best to present the truth to the public but how best to use the news to deceive the public into giving the fascist and his group more money or more power.
Henry A. Wallace
Kids are born into the situation they’re born into, and obviously, they have no control over that. And we, as adults, it’s up to us to take care of kids – that’s part of your moral responsibility. I always tell people, ‘There’s two groups we should take care of – old people and young people.’
Charles Barkley
If you look at groups in the Palestine region, Hamas and the Palestine Islamic jihad, more often than not in their first operations they would accidentally blow themselves up on the way to the target or the bomb wouldn’t go off.
Michael Scheuer
The string of disqualification cases were filed against me when I was still contemplating a run for the presidency by people whose motives were suspect at best. Powerful groups with personal agenda are behind these cases. But I am not afraid. Not when the people are behind me.
Grace Poe
A little group of wise hearts is better than a wilderness full of fools.
John Ruskin
We applaud the people who are film stars, who get elected to an office, who are very athletic, the small group who play with power in a very limited way. But we’re completely oblivious to what can be done to the infinite realities that exist in front of us. We deny them.
Frederick Lenz
The way in which a group of people solves problems.
Geert Hofstede
I’m very happy. I like my work and I like the various aspects of it – going around the world, teaching the gospel according to St. Albert – I like that. And seeing clients, doing group therapy, writing books.
Albert Ellis
When it went on the air, the sales department hated it. It was the highest advertising pullout show in the history of NBC. At the early focus groups, people were saying, ‘Who are these people? Why should we watch them?
Dick Wolf
In Iraq, we did have dictators, we did have times of war but it never reached the point where one person, or a group, would be attacking another group and would be enslaving all the women of that group.
Yanar Mohammed
I was having a bit of trouble. I wasn’t in a good relationship. Or I was in too many bad relationships. I had so many girlfriends at that point. None of them seemed to care they weren’t pleasing me very much. I was obviously in with the wrong group.
Mick Jagger
I think you can judge the level of success for any group of people by the reaction against it.
Rita Mae Brown
I came to the realization that a strong female is frightening to everybody, because all societies are male-dominated, black societies, poor people, rich people, any racial group, they’re all dominated by men. A strong female is going to threaten everybody across the board…
Madonna Ciccone
Personally I’m an advocate for healthy marriages and families and I do a lot of speaking around the country sharing my faith and talking to women’s groups, even specifically about marriage.
Candace Cameron
I just can’t – I can’t exist in normal group situations. A classroom, where you have to sort of jockey for position, compete for attention – I would just withdraw.
Jesse Eisenberg
When you look at Syria, and you look at all the militant groups on the ground, there are many groups in Syria that could pose a threat to the United States, not just Khorasan.
Richard Engel
My book group has one rule: no books for adults. We read young adult fiction only.
Lev Grossman
We have to get rid of ISIS first. After we get rid of ISIS, we’ll start thinking about it. But we can’t be fighting [Bashar] Assad. And when you’re fighting Assad, you are fighting Russia, you’re fighting – you’re fighting a lot of different groups.
Donald Trump
There are a lot of great organizations who are fighting for food and environmental safety in this country. The Environmental Working Group, Just Label It, Food Democracy Now, and the Center for Food Safety, to name a few.
Zoe Lister-Jones
I lived Tom Girardi’s legal life with him first 10 years of our relationship. I went to every legal organization, every event – all of those groups he belonged to and those speeches he gave.
Erika Jayne
You just can’t say that, just as you can’t say that all Christians are fundamentalists. We have our share of them (fundamentalists). All religions have these little groups.
Pope Francis
The individual is not a killer, but the group is, and by identifying with it the individual is transformed into a killer.
Arthur Koestler
By the accusation of liberal bias … the institutions that conservatives revere – the military, corporate America, organized religion, and the powerful conservative groups themselves – will be able to escape scrutiny and increase their influence.
Eric Alterman
What’s funny about my group of friends is that none of us ever went to the same school. None of us lived in the same part of town.
Mila Kunis
Afghanistan is just one of those countries that no group can conquer. It’s so challenging to live, and the people are so close among their own tribes, their own groups, that you can’t rule them all, you can’t get an accord from all of them.
Bill Murray
Communication is the conduit of leadership from the Prime Minister down to the leading hand of a small group of council workers fixing the roads. Leadership uncommunicated is leadership unrequited!
Peter Cosgrove
Werewolf is a simple game for a large group of people (seven or more.) It requires no equipment besides some bits of paper; you can play it just sitting in a circle. I’d call it a party game, except that it’s a game of accusations, lying, bluffing, second-guessing, assassination, and mob hysteria.
Andrew Plotkin
Health economists have estimated that an injection of $250 million per year in Indigenous clinical care, and $50 million in preventative care, is required to provide services at the same level as for any other group with the health conditions of Indigenous Australians.
Malcolm Fraser
We are going to be able to defeat ISIS on the ground there, as well as in this world, because of the Muslim Americans in our country and throughout the world who understand that this brutal and barbaric group is perverting the name of a great world religion.
Martin O’Malley
Historical atrocities have certainly shown that dehumanizing any group is the first step toward genocide.
Robert Paul Weston
If I’m out to dinner with a group of friends, and somebody offers to pay for the check, I immediately reach for my wallet. Inside is a note that says, “Say thanks!”
Mitch Hedberg
You know, if I started worrying about what the critics think, I’d never make another comedy. You couldn’t pick a less funny group than critics – you couldn’t find a more bitter group of people!
Todd Phillips
We don’t have an isolated group [of senior managers] surrounded by servants. Berkshire’s headquarters is a tiny little suite. We just came back from Berkshire’s board meeting; it had moved up to the board room of the Kiewit company and [it was so large and luxurious that] I felt uncomfortable.
Charlie Munger
I’d obviously never heard of the group, but my ignorance in literary matters is to blame for that (every book in the world is out there waiting to be read by me).
Roberto Bolano
There is one Islam, unreformed, but three sets of Muslims. Medina, Mecca, and. Dissidents, reformers, whatever you want to call them. The first group are the extremists and fundamentalists, the second the great mass of Muslims who just want to live their lives in peace, and the third are reformers.
Ayaan Hirsi Ali
The people are learning that you cannot leave decisions only to leaders. Local groups have to create the political will for change, rather than waiting for others to do things for them. That is where positive, and sustainable, change begins.
Wangari Maathai
In terms of my career, having the gold definitely changed my life. The Olympics are different, you know? They’re every four years and it’s such a small group.
Kristi Yamaguchi
You have to buy off interest groups, compromise your ideals, and settle for half loaves…
Kevin Drum
It’s much more painful to bomb in front of a group of yours peers than it is to not win. Tons of assholes ain’t winning awards, but only one guy will be bombing. So, that’s much more nerve-wracking.
Seth Rogen
Interestingly, what the bourgeois women’s groups in India wanted to do in the nationalist period is to have the peasant women essentially follow them… They would be the leaders and the peasant women would be the masses.
Vijay Prashad
Individuals may see the moral light and voluntarily give up their unjust posture; but, as Reinhold Niebuhr has reminded us, groups are more immoral than individuals.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Social revolutions and group revolutions are good, and we need that, but we also need personal revolution – revolution within ourselves that change who we are as people.
Ziggy Marley
Nearly all edible seaweeds – or ‘sea vegetables,’ as they ought technically to be called – belong to one of three broad groups: green, red and brown algae.
Yotam Ottolenghi
Throughout history, when societies face tough economic times, we have seen democratic reforms deferred, decreased trust in government, persecution of minority groups, and a general shrinking of the democratic space.
Samantha Power
There’s not much more to do on the gay agenda. They got gay marriage, and we’re close to putting you in jail if you won’t bake a cake for a gay wedding. We’ve got pretty much everything, but you have to keep the group happy.
Rush Limbaugh
Up and down the the still sparsely settled coast of British North America, groups of men-intellectuals and farmers, scholars and merchants, the learned and the ignorant-gathered for the purpose of constructing enlightened governments.
Bernard Bailyn
The leader…is rarely the brightest person in the group. Rather they have extraordinary taste, which makes them more curators than creators. They are appreciators of talent and nurturers of talent and they have the ability to recognize valuable ideas.
Warren G. Bennis
I go to a lot of self-help groups in the day, and then I can sleep pretty well at night.
Andy Biersack
Selfishness beats altruism within groups. Altruistic groups beat selfish groups. Everything else is commentary.
David Sloan Wilson
Many cults start off with high ideals that get corrupted by leaders or their board of advisors who become power-hungry and dominate and control members lives. No group with high ideals starts off as a cult; they become one when their errant ways are exposed.
Philip Zimbardo
There’s different ways of presenting a pop group to the world. It doesn’t have to be the same old poses.
Paul Morley
Vegans are the ONLY unique people on this planet who think outside of the box. They are the ONLY ones who reject society’s norms, and live differently than the aforesaid groups and people.
Gary Yourofsky
I’m building an empire. How do you know I won’t be the next [Universal Music Group Chairman/CEO] Doug Morris one day? I’m doing a hell of a job, and I’m on the road to that next level.
DJ Khaled
To be included in the group with women like Glenn Close and Kyra Sedgwick is a little bit astonishing to me. To even be mentioned in the same sentence as Glenn Close is just ridiculous.
Julianna Margulies
These technologies can make life easier, can let us touch people we might not otherwise. You may have a child with a birth defect and be able to get in touch with other parents and support groups, get medical information, the latest experimental drugs. These things can profoundly influence life. I’m not downplaying that.
Steve Jobs
I work with the options I have in front of me and my reasons for choosing a job can vary enormously depending on the circumstances. Sometimes I take a job because it’s a group of people I’m dying to work with, and sometimes it can be a desire to shake things up a bit and not to take myself too seriously.
Colin Firth
There’s an ugly civil war side to revolutionary Boston that we don’t often talk about and a lot of thuggish, vigilante behavior by groups like the Sons of Liberty.
Nathaniel Philbrick
What gives it its human character is that the individual through language addresses himself in the role of the others in the group and thus becomes aware of them in his own conduct.
George H. Mead
Once you are a victim of a bombing, you enter a risk group to which they will not sell insurance.
Ernst Zundel
Our current drug crisis is a tragedy born of a phony system of classification. For reasons that are little more than accidents of history, we have divided a group of nonfood substances into two categories: items purchasable for supposed pleasure (such as alcohol), and illicit drugs.
Stephen Jay Gould
I don’t particularly dislike any kind of person that might be reading my stuff. They like it and that’s cool, but I don’t do the work for any kind of group in particular, except for hobos, who just plain kick ass and light up my life.
Jhonen Vasquez
you can do something. You can, even for one person Don’t turn away; help. Because those who suffer, often suffer not because of the person or the group that inflicts the suffering; they seem to suffer because nobody cares.
Elie Wiesel
Why does the left protest and the right doesn’t? The left is a hate group.
Rush Limbaugh
And you cannot have a socialist revolution commandeered from the top, ordered around by some omniscient leader or group of leaders
Ernest Mandel
You have to make every group you come in contact with better.
Will Smith
Vice President Joe Biden believes that illegal immigrants are citizens. Obama believes that some Americans who join Islamist groups are citizens, while others are not. Who is an American? Whomever the executive branch deems an American. Who isn’t? It depends on whether Obama ate his Wheaties or not.
Ben Shapiro
A sad fact of life lately at the Museum of Modern Art is that when it comes to group shows of contemporary painting from the collection, the bar has been set pretty low.
Jerry Saltz
I don’t think about age groups when I write, although I think if I know I’m writing for Children I’ll be a bit more ambitious, and think more about every word, because I know that they pay closer attention when they read than adults do.
Neil Gaiman
The Holocaust has proven to be an indispensable ideological weapon. Through its deployment, one of the world’s most formidable military powers, with a horrendous human rights record, has cast itself as a “victim” state, and the most successful ethnic group in the US has likewise acquired victim status.
Norman Finkelstein
I find that when you open on a group of people sitting down and talking, the scene sits down with them. The best antidote for that is an entrance. Begin the scene with someone entering, and somehow it’s more interesting.
Howard Hawks
For two hundred years Haiti has been swimming upstream. We were the first country in which independence was won by a group of slaves – black slaves. Across the water, the country that had just achieved independence – the U.S. – still practiced slavery.
Michele Montas
On Easter, the Pope asked for peace in the Middle East. There are two groups the Pope has to contend with – Jewish people and Muslims. They couldn’t wait to hear his suggestions.
Conan O’Brien
Barry, you’re over thirty years old. You owe it to your mum and dad not to sing in a group called Sonic Death Monkey.
Nick Hornby
We are communal beings who love to get together in groups and share emotions – like sporting events, rock concerts and political rallies. We crave tribal membership.
Nick Morgan
Environmentalists are a socialist group of individuals that are the tool of the Democrat Party. I’m proud to say that they are my enemy. They are not Americans, never have been Americans, never will be Americans.
Don Young
In all communities you find groups that behave badly. But you must understand them too.
Indira Gandhi
Making an independent documentary film is so hard that usually, the usual model is that your film becomes a model for advocacy, so you can enlist that support group and get as much juice out of your film as possible. That’s just practically, financially, what you need to do.
Tim Hetherington
Ninety percent of the people in any group are nice, raised to be polite, and have more in common than not.
Susan RoAne
The joy of hate reflects people who get off pretending to hate something, or hate you, in order to score political points. I call them the ‘tolerati’ – you know, a group of people who claim to be tolerant, except when they run into someone who disagrees with them.
Greg Gutfeld
Grassroots groups challenge the “business-as-usual” environmentalism that is generally practiced by the more privileged wildlife-and conservation-oriented groups. The focus of activists of color and their constituents reflects their life experiences of social, economic, and political disenfranchisement.
Robert D Bullard
The Heritage Foundation is the premier think tank, research organization. The premier idea group for the conservative movement.
Jim DeMint
Evolutionary biologists often avoid using the term “race” because there is so much racist baggage that comes with the term. However, they are often okay with the idea that the genealogy of human groups within our species can sometimes be inferred in much the same way as the genealogy of different species.
Elliott Sober
Independence is not a whim or an ambition. It is the necessary condition of our survival as an ethnic group.
Aslan Maskhadov
I think these ladies, that group of 130 women, are going to make a difference in what goes on down there, because they’re going to hold the locals’ feet to the fire.
Lynn Westmoreland
It’s more than Fifth Harmony, the girl group – it’s a sisterhood.
Camila Cabello
The same Constitution that allows her the right, if she wants to, to sit there and say nothing, allows these groups the right to petition their government for redress.
Trey Gowdy
If the group is an art form of the future, then convening groups is an artistry we must cultivate to fully harvest the promise of the future.
Jacob Needleman
After finishing art school I was applying to stores like Home Depot and Walmart. You know, places where you have to take a urine test before you get your minimum wage. Even those places wouldn’t hire me. So I was lucky when I got included in a group show at the Richard Heller gallery that kind of started my art career.
Marcel Dzama
I think soldiers are not just one homogenous group, just like Americans arent. They all have different feelings about the war.
Emily Robison
Individual versus group selection results in a mix of altruism and selfishness, of virtue and sin, among the members of a society.
E. O. Wilson
The main opposition to Judge Gorsuch’s confirmation comes from a handful of Democratic Senators who are using the playbook of far-left special interest groups, the same groups that routinely attack anyone who doesn’t actively promote their agenda.
Thom Tillis
The group MoveOn.org has called on John McCain to release all of his medical records. In response, McCain told them, ‘Why don’t you just come down to the warehouse and look around for yourself? Bring a forklift, it’ll take time.’
Conan O’Brien
A lot of those soft skills – working with groups of people who I’ve never met before to accomplish a mission, adapting to personality types – those are skills I’ve learned outside the SEAL time.
Jonny Kim
I believe that people of my income group should pay more, and I explained why, but that won’t necessarily lift overall wage levels.
William J. Clinton
A lot of people saved IBM. Yes, I was the leader of that team but I could never have done it without a group of IBMers helping me.
Lou Gerstner
We know that ISIL and other terrorist groups are actively encouraging people, around the world and in our country, to commit terrible acts of violence, oftentimes as lone-wolf actors.
Barack Obama
It is a truly wonderful fact – the wonder of which we are apt to overlook from familiarity – that all animals and all plants throughout all time and space should be related to each other in group subordinate to group.
Charles Darwin
I get bored very easily, so I love doing different things, changing, doing a job for a month and then doing another one for six months and then moving into a different group of people. I love being able to stop. That’s one of the greatest benefits we have in our profession.
Jeremy Irons
For about ten years now, the struggle for democracy and the respect of human rights has been in the focus point – if not a commodity – of political groups aiming to rise to power.
Omar Bongo
When I took the oath of office, I pledged loyalty to only one special interest group – ‘We the people’.
Ronald Reagan
But you can’t kill humans It’s– Evil? The world is evil Risika. Wolves hunt the stragglers in a group of deer. Vultures devour the fallen.Hyenas destroy the weak. Humans kill that which they fear. Survive and be strong, or die, cornered by your prey, trembling because the night is dark.
Amelia Atwater-Rhodes
It always takes a group of people working together with a common purpose in an atmosphere of trust and collaboration to get extraordinary things done.
James M. Kouzes
Our focus in the client group had always been to build products and features that people wanted to use. That we wanted to use. That our moms wanted to use.
Jamie Zawinski
The fact is that there is a serious problem of extremism with minority groups within Muslim communities.
Maajid Nawaz
At this time, my work on the SPS power supplies had just come to an end; I joined a study group on the pp project and an experimental team studying cooling in a small ring (ICE).
Simon van der Meer
The feeling that dreams show us the real nature of reality is something that’s shared by many indigenous groups around the world.
Stanley Krippner
I dont know of one group of people thats more disliked than politicians — it may be the folks who gave us the Wall Street bailout. And thats where Mitt Romney comes from.
Rick Santorum
A small group of thoughtful people could change the world.
Margaret Mead
I support the framework that the bipartisan group of senators are working on…We have to remember the 11 million people who are here are people…[i]t’s what Abraham Lincoln would have said, it is what the Republican Party stands for. It is the reason we have to get it right on who stays and who goes.
Darrell Issa
[U]nless oppressed groups stick together, and on alliances of self interest rather than do-goodism; nothing can be accomplished in the long run to dismantle the apparatus of oppression.
Shulamith Firestone
People divide into groups where they talk to each other, but don’t talk across the divide. And yet most of the challenges we face in the world today are challenges that are to do with trade, with technology, with how you make sure that people are properly educated, reform your health care system.
Tony Blair
If there are no consequences now for breaking the prohibition on chemical weapons, it will be harder to muster an international consensus to ensure that Hezbollah and other terrorist groups are prevented from acquiring or using these weapons themselves.
Samantha Power
It is the night-black Massachusetts legendry which packs the really macabre “kick”. Here is material for a really profound study in group-neuroticism; for certainly, no one can deny the existence of a profoundly morbid streak in the Puritan imagination.
H. P. Lovecraft
A Democratic strategy firm is trying to help them out. They did a new poll from – it`s a global strategy group. And they did a poll of both base Democrats and swing voting Democrats, trying to determine how to best harness this energy [ of leftist anger]. And maybe more importantly, how to message it.
Chuck Todd
I think the advantage of democracy is that it makes us less dependent on a group of leaders.
Azim Premji
I met Keith Haring at SVA college where he was having an art show, later we had a group art show at the Mud Club in NYC. Keith owed me $50, so he gave me a large framed canvas with barking dogs that had large dicks. I painted over Keith’s painting to paint flowers for my mom’s living room.
Steve Kaufman
Christianity and the Holy Spirit is not just for a special group of people, it’s for all of us. That’s when I really began to seek God and his will for my life.
Robert Hood
You know, terrorism in Afghanistan had everything to do with the support for the mujahidin by Saudi Arabia and by the CIA that sought to create an international religious extremist group to fight the Soviet Union.
Jill Stein
A lot of what you have seen with third-party groups – like the Tea Party – these folks are conservative, and they are fed up with people in Washington who are not working for them but against them.
Tim Griffin
Overcoming barriers to performance is how groups become teams.
John Katzenbach
For Black people, we’re one of the only groups of people that for some reason to express love of yourself, in some ways, is misconstrued as a dislike for someone else.
Wynton Marsalis
Group action – yes; group thinking – no
Norman Lamm
The proliferation of new music groups and individual performers focusing on new music today is heartening. On the one hand the culture is very resistant to new things, and yet it continues to change and grow.
Michael Hersch
I’ve campaigned for people. I’ve campaigned across the country for people. I have supported people in local elections. I do work with groups and causes. So, I feel like I am a participant and a civically-engaged citizen.
Caroline Kennedy
I know who I am and can deal with the use of Indian mascots… But I know it can be demeaning to a group of people. Maybe it would be all right if they were truly honoring the people and are giving due respect to the people they are representing.
Leonard Little
Al-Qaida in particular remains dangerous, and there [in Iraq] is some residual militia and special group presence. There are still between 20 and 30 attacks per day, still periodic car bombs and still loss of innocent civilians.
David Petraeus
It’s like a little folk song. I think it might’ve been Harry Belafonte or someone like that who did it. And “Merry Christmas, Everybody” by Slade, which is a rock group – a rock-pop group who are very big over there.
Nick Lowe
It’s really easy to find your friends when you’re playing away. You have a close-knit group with you and everyone else is cheering hard for their side. There’s more satisfaction coming away with a road victory.
Jim Courier
The different Washington, D.C.-based groups and the different special interest groups, they all want to be able to pick who they want to be a senator. They don’t speak for everyone, and they definitely don’t speak for Oklahomans.
James Lankford
I was always interested in science, truth, goodness and fairness. I have always been strongly individualistic and merit-oriented. This is probably because I was adopted and thus have always tended to cavalierly dismiss the importance of “blood ties” and any inherited or “unearned” group characteristics.
Stephan Kinsella
Politics in Bolivia must combine social consciousness with professional competency. In my administration, intellectuals from the upper class can be cabinet ministers or ambassadors, as can members of Indian ethnic groups.
Evo Morales
Self-help books are for the birds. Self-help groups are where it’s at.
Janice Dickinson
Few things in life are less efficient than a group of people trying to write a sentence. The advantage of this method is that you end up with something for which you will not be personally blamed.
Scott Adams
We [Democrats] have become a party of assembling all these different groups, the women’s caucus and the black caucus and the Hispanic caucus and the lesbian-gay-transgender caucus and so forth, and that doesn’t relate to people out in rural America.
Collin Peterson
There are leaders who know that however furious the debate, there are good men and women in all population groups – amongst blacks, amongst whites, and amongst Afrikaans and English speaking people.
Nelson Mandela
Most groups today aren’t groups. In a true group all the members create the arrangements among themselves.
Robby Krieger
How fortunate for civilization, that Beethoven, Michelangelo, Galileo and Faraday were not required by law to attend schools where their total personalities would have been operated upon to make them learn acceptable ways of participating as members of “the group.”
Joel Henry Hildebrand
The dynamics and structures found in those groups called families in our society may not be evident in those groups called families in other places and times.
R. D. Laing
Alone, no one wins freedom.
Ursula K. Le Guin
In this era, we have more choice than any group of people ever. When you are out at night, anyone in the universe can contact you instantly. Think about how crazy that is compared to even a few decades ago.
Aziz Ansari
Thanks to a deal finalized in 2008, Chicago’s parking meters will be operated for the next 75 years by a group of investors put together by Morgan Stanley, including the sovereign wealth fund of Abu Dhabi.
Thomas Frank
Record companies would rather you stay dumb, not even think of it as a business, so they can either rip you off or get you out of the way in five years to make way for the new groups.
George Clinton
To butcher a pork shoulder is to be forcibly reminded that this is the shoulder of a large mammal, made up of distinct groups of muscles with a purpose quite apart from feeding me. The work itself gives me a keener interest in the story of the hog: where it came from and how it found its way to my kitchen.
Michael Pollan
I read “The Group” by Mary McCarthy. It had tons of sex in it, or so I thought at the time.
Alice Hoffman
The primary ineluctable facts of the birth and death of each one of the constituent members in a social group determine the necessity of education.
John Dewey
I want to be someone who is doing something solid. And I am doing my thing. You can like it or not, but I know that now I have a really nice group of really cool and talented actors that follow me. It’s the same for them. They have a special connection with my movies because we do these movies differently.
Quentin Dupieux
The well-run group is not a battlefield of egos.
Laozi
All social cooperation on a larger scale than the most intimate social group requires a measure of coercion.
Reinhold Niebuhr
If somebody comes to a neighborhood coffee hour, or goes to a discussion group, and they have a discussion, I do think that people really walk away with a real understanding of the issues.
Mike Lowry
The Democratic party is really just a giant day care center for squabbling little groups.
Pat Buchanan
The most powerful people on earth are focus groups.
William J. Clinton
Every Democrat constituency group has at least two things in common. They hate us. They despise opposition. That’s why they created political correctness. Speech censorship. They hate opposition and they’ll do anything they can to eliminate it.
Rush Limbaugh
I see creative-writing classes as some sort of AA meeting. It is more of a support group for people who write than an actual course in which you learn writing skills. This support group is extremely important because there is something very lonely about writing.
Etgar Keret
When punk began to be a genre, people were going to go out and try to mine it. Some of the better groups, like the Ramones and the Sex Pistols, were very artificial.
Iggy Pop
I guess Madden had seen everything with out group, and everybody else had seen everything. (After coming to practice field riding a horse and wearing a German WWI helmet painted silver and black)
Ted Hendricks
My career, I look at it in a Darwinian framework. I’m going to do exactly what I want, and I’m going to survive, or I’m not. I’m not going to pander. I’m not going to change things. I’m not going to do focus groups. I’ll live and die by the sword. I don’t care. Because I couldn’t live with myself.
Ricky Gervais
The conflict between the need to belong to a group and the need to be seen as unique and individual is the dominant struggle of adolescence.
Jeanne Elium
Our whole evolution up to this point shows that human groups spontaneously evolve patterns of behavior, as well as patterns of training people for that behavior, which tend on balance to lead people to create rather than destroy. Humans are, on net balance, builders rather than destroyers.
Julian Simon
Producing major change in an organization is not just about signing up one charismatic leader. You need a group – a team – to be able to drive the change. One person, even a terrific charismatic leader, is never strong enough to make all this happen.
John P. Kotter
Groups tend to believe their work is harder, more strategic, or just more valuable while underestimating those contributions from other groups.
Steven Sinofsky
I am very slow to warm. I’ve always been sort of a loner. I didn’t play team sports. I am better one-on-one than in big groups.
Rooney Mara
My brother had a big band in high school; after that we continued to play together, eventually forming a group called the Jazz Brothers, that recorded for Riverside Records.
Chuck Mangione
Working together in concert more smoothly not only helps us move more quickly; it changes the nature of what we can undertake. When we have the confidence that we can orchestrate the group effort required to realize them, we dare bigger dreams.
Justin Rosenstein
Before there was the Soviet Union that could inflame matters. Now you have states not as powerful as the Soviet Union, but states like Iraq, like Iran, and to some extent Syria, having made it possible for some of these groups to operate. So it is a very difficult situation.
Henry A. Kissinger
For the artist, fulfillment of self consists not in marching in the ranks of the liberators but in being entered in the roll of the Masters. The artist tends to find himself in the position of a deserter from his social group or, at best, one who collaborates, with secret reservations.
Harold Rosenberg
I am interested in the interaction of a group of people who have a common goal, or a common obsession, each contributing something unique to make something greater than the sum of its parts. I don’t know why, but from day one, that has interested me.
Steven Van Zandt
The enemy of the spirit is the selfish ego, which thinks that happiness can be gained through causing unhappiness and disharmony to others. In many ancient languages, the word for enemy means “one who falls out of rhythm; one who is not working in harmony with the larger group.”
Sharon Gannon
My comments concerning persons afflicted with AIDS as well as various minority groups have left people wondering if I am a racist.
John Rocker
I think there is more creative freedom as a solo artist by far because you might get a group push back on an idea because it’s more of a democratic process. You can sink or swim on your own ideas on a solo project.
Myka 9
My coherence-creating groups are going to put out all this mischief-mongership in the world.
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
And so I missed those best years and I find it difficult for me, in groups, to be comfortable.
Eddie Albert
Even if you perform with a great choreography, or a part of a great group, I believe you can’t imitate people’s aura.
Minzy
We cannot guarantee the human rights of any oppressed group alone.
Jill Stein
I feel Irish-Americans are the forgotten minority group. Nobody else is making films about them.
Edward Burns
We can only live changes: we cannot think our way to humanity. Every one of us, every group, must become the model of that which we desire to create.
Ivan Illich
There’s something beautiful about the fact that Obama was not just elected, but elected decisively across racial, and socio-economic and cultural groups and that we all celebrated in his win.
Maya Angelou
A group or an artist shouldn’t get his money until his boss gets his.
Bobby Darin
Does HIV cause AIDS? Can a virus cause a syndrome? How? It can’t, because a syndrome is a group of diseases resulting from acquired immune deficiency.
Thabo Mbeki
They’ve seen me make decisions, they’ve seen me under trying times, they’ve seen me weep, they’ve seen me laugh, they’ve seen me hug. And they know who I am, and I believe they’re comfortable with the fact that they know I’m not going to shift principles or shift positions based upon polls and focus groups.
George W. Bush
I don’t divide my reading into demographic categories, any more than I’d divide my friends into groups along ethnic or sexual lines. The thing I look for most is a sense of literary rawness – bareback fiction, if you will.
Christopher Fowler
One thing you think about when you do get nominated is that there is a coalition of people that think you performed okay in the role. You start to think about how much of a blessing it is to have your peers and then people outside of your peer group to say bravo.
Hosea Chanchez
Anti-Semitism is nothing but the antagonistic attitude produced in the non-Jew by the Jewish group. This is a normal social reaction. The Jewish group has thrived on oppression and on the antagonism it has forever met in the world… the root cause is their use of enemies they create in order to keep solidarity.
Albert Einstein
The more the Iranians are seen to be dominating the region, the more it is going to inflame Sunni radicalism and fuel the rise of groups like the Islamic State.
David Petraeus
I owe ‘Jericho’ my whole time in America, really. It was a fantastic group of people to work with.
Lennie James
I grew up reading biographies on groups, and I love all that. The thing about biographies, it’s the old clichГ© but it’s true – a lot of the time these things are more about the author than they are about the group.
Stevie Jackson
It’s the group sound that’s important, even when you’re playing a solo. You not only have to know your own instrument, you must know the others and how to back them up at all times. That’s jazz.
Oscar Peterson
Our responsibility is to rally and lead the whole party and the Chinese people of all ethnic groups, take up this historic baton and continue working hard for the great renewal of the Chinese nation, so that we will stand rock firm in the family of nations and make fresh and greater contribution to mankind.
Xi Jinping
My mom was on the United Way group that decides how to allocate the money and looks at all the different charities and makes the very hard decisions about where that pool of funds is going to go.
Bill Gates
All my records have been written to be records, rather than writing a group of songs and seeing if they fit together.
Justin Townes Earle
Oppressed groups are frequently placed in the situation of being listened to only if we frame our ideas in the language that is familiar to and comfortable for a dominant group. This requirement often changes the meaning of our ideas and works to elevate the ideas of dominant groups.
Patricia Hill Collins
The way I see it, my blood, sweat, and tears are not just for me; it’s for Fifth Harmony as well. We have been blessed. Most groups have lead singers, but we don’t.
Normani Kordei
It’s true; I’m fascinated by elite groups.
Robert Lacey
Your best players have to unite and inspire the group… otherwise, they’ll divide the group
Jeff Van Gundy
The family should be a closely knit group. The home should be a self-contained shelter of security; a kind of school where life’s basic lessons are taught; and a kind of church where God is honored; a place where wholesome recreation and simple pleasures are enjoyed.
Billy Graham
Government has no money of its own. All it does is take resources from one group and given them to another.
John Stossel
In my community there were two groups of people, There were the ones who did not die and the ones who came back to life.
Esther Perel
I think it’s a very important function of art to challenge accepted reality, especially when that reality is created by powerful interest groups.
Salman Rushdie
One of O’Reilly’s advantages is that we have a network of thousands of user groups to whom we give free books, to whom we advertise our products, and they spread the word. If you don’t have that database, it’s hard to get the attention of the market.
Tim O’Reilly
History has shown us that it’s not religion that’s the problem, but any system of thought that insists that one group of people are inviolably in the right, whereas the others are in the wrong and must somehow be punished.
Rod Liddle
Silicon Valley tends to believe in the individual who creates a small group and does something big.
Reid Hoffman
Where did we come from? Where are we going? Is there possibility of a group discount?
Woody Allen
I was part of that group of kids growing up in the ’80s under the Reagan regime, what I used to call ‘living in the shadow of Dr. Manhattan,’ where we would have dreams all the time that New York City was being destroyed, and that that wall of light and destruction was rolling out and would just devour our neighborhood.
Junot Diaz
There is a group of people who know very well where the weapons of automatic influence lie and employ them regularly and expertly to get what they want. They go from social encounter to social encounter requesting others to comply with their wishes; their frequency of success is dazzling.
Robert Cialdini
The problem in Georgia is we’ve got targeted heavily by outside groups that were interested in recruiting voters for the candidates that they want.
Marjorie Taylor Greene
If you’ve been playing for a few years…especially in a group context… you’ll see if you have the ability … or the passion to want to carry on. It’s something that you have to be dedicated to …and you’ve got to love ..no matter what happens.
Mick Taylor
Most single women have been in that situation where there is a silent guy in your group. You don’t see him as boyfriend material. He’s just there, but you know all the same people.
Zoe Lister-Jones
We now have capabilities in science and technology that raise the very realistic possibility that a small group of terrorists could kill not only thousands of people, as they did on September 11th, but hundreds of thousands of people. And that has changed the dimension of the threat we face.
Michael Chertoff
In a free society, we will tolerate boorish people, who have abhorrent behavior, but if we’re civilized people, we publicly criticize that, and don’t belong to those groups or don’t associate with those people.
Rand Paul
With the MacArthur grant, I realized that people have high expectations of me, that they were placing me in this group of achievers. I compared what Id actually achieved in my life with what I would like to achieve and what other people have achieved, and I found that comparison depressing.
Jared Diamond
We may as well cut out group theory. That is a subject that will never be of any use in physics.
James Jeans
The effect of violent dislike between groups has always created an indifference to the welfare and honor of the state.
Thomas B. Macaulay
A large number of suspects, both men and women, escaped martial law for lack of any shred of evidence against them on which a court-martial could convict. So they began setting them free in groups, according to their birth-place. But half-way, the car-load would be emptied into a ditch.
Georges Bernanos
We’ve got an electric organ, a sax, drums, guitar and bass guitar. We sound less like the Beatles than most of the groups.
Dave Clark
If we understand the mechanism and motives of the group mind, it is now possible to control and regiment the masses according to our will without them knowing it.
Edward Bernays
I don’t think you’re going to be seeing the U.S. employing large army divisions to deal with small terrorist groups again. I don’t think they’re going to be occupying foreign nations in order to dry up terrorist groups within them. I think that lesson has been learned.
Richard Engel
The raids on Freedom House, the National Democratic Institute and International Republican Institute, the Adenauer Foundation, and other groups helping Egyptians move toward respect for democratic politics and human rights were of a piece with the practices of Hosni Mubarak – only bolder and more repressive.
Elliott Abrams
For productive collaboration adopt five principles: involve the relevant stakeholders, build consensus phase by phase, design a process map, designate a process facilitator and harness the power of group memory.
David Friedrich Strauss
I was a nobody when I met with the publisher. Nobody knew who I was. I was doing some speaking for entrepreneurs. I did little groups. I had no following.
Simon Sinek
Given that there was that era of girl group music and it’s still very popular, but I think if you looked at the chart from that time you would see many more men on it. Because the industry, they were catering to young girls. I mean, that’s what they thought their audience was.
Lesley Gore
I’m not really part of any group or clique or gang because that’s always been my nature.
Jack Dee
I’m really thankful to God, man. Like now, I’m really making a real comeback with my group. With or without a record, with or without a movie. And behind all the negative press behind this movie.
Ike Turner
I like my name. My mom named me after a song by the 1970s group Bread. So, it’s meaningful, and I like the song. It’s a love song – kind of – but it’s kind of depressing and dark.
Aubrey Plaza
At Cisco, we are moving to collaboration teams, groups coming together that represent sales, engineering, finance, legal, etc. And we’re training leaders to think across silos.
John T. Chambers
And I would go on all these college tours. And I was thinking about where I would want to go. And at the end of each tour, I’d be like, yeah, yeah, yeah. So you guys have any improv groups?’
Bowen Yang
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.
Thomas Sowell
The ‘Goonies’ are a close knit group. They believe in themselves, even though there are doubters throwing darts at them outside…’Goonies never say die.’ That’s pretty in line with the mentality of our team.
Robin Lopez
Any education given by a group tends to socialize its members, but the quality and the value of the socialization depends upon the habits and aims of the group. Hence, once more, the need of a measure for the worth of any given mode of social life.
John Dewey
Hip-hop was started on groups.
Quavo
I wish I could see over crowds and small groups of people.
John Oates
If you look at the true essence of the Black Panthers, they were more of a community protection group.
Anthony Mackie
People do still cheer for the President. And some of the military audiences are more likely to cheer than others. I have seen him speak lately in front of groups like Freedom House, where the applause was a long time coming.
Gwen Ifill
Were it not for the shepherds, there would have been no reception. And were it not for a group of stargazers, there would have been no gifts.
Max Lucado
I am very blessed to have a great group of long-term friends and a huge family that has been very loving and supportive. I try to stay connected to that and contribute as much as I can.
Jim James
I grew up in a city called Southfield, and it’s one of the most diverse cities in the country. Just from the different socio-economic statuses and racial and ethnic groups I was around, I was around all different types of music from the beginning.
Mike Posner
I just try to stay around the same people, stick around the same group.
Lil Boosie
It really matters whether people are working on generating clean energy or improving transportation or making the Internet work better and all those things. And small groups of people can have a really huge impact.
Larry Page
Most of my recorded material has been in small group configurations. I have not released large orchestral works as recordings because it hasn’t been within the realm of possibility.
Bill Dixon
Perhaps the most promising trend in our thinking about leadership is the growing conviction that the purposes of the group are best served when the leader helps followers develop their own initiative, strengthens them in the use of their own judgment, enables them to grow, and to become better contributors.
John W. Gardner
The liberal groups spent months raising money so they could take down anyone President Bush nominated. But they have not been able to touch judge Roberts.
Michael Oxley
Herman Cain told a group of Occupy Wall Street protesters to go home, get a job, and get a life. That’s the Republican version of hope and change, ladies and gentlemen.
Jay Leno
Sometimes groups and their material can get overbloated.
Fred Schneider
I like the groups on Factory, A Certain Ratio and Section 25. I
Ian Curtis
There is a tendency to want to treat blacks as a monolithic socioeconomic group.
William Julius Wilson
In New York, Catholic groups have forced an art gallery to shut down an exhibition of a six-foot image of Jesus in chocolate. So, the Archbishop of New York was very upset. He said, ‘It is appalling to make Jesus out of food! Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to go bake some communion wafers.’
Bill Maher
When I was about 13 or 14. I was in a Kingston Trio type group. We evolved into the New Breed. Our first song on the radio was “Green Eyed Woman,” not to be confused with “Green Eyed Lady”.
Timothy B. Schmit
The impression I got during the research and interview process was that they are trying to own the disease and therefore own the cause which can ultimately be more profitable for some corporations and fund-raising groups.
Ravida Din
I believe that she has the kind of magic that causes revolutions and promotes great discoveries. There’s nothing I enjoy more than to observe Gabriela in the midst of a group of people. Do you know what she reminds me of? A fragrant rose in a bouquet of artificial flowers.
Jorge Amado
There’s lots of different feminist groups. It’s not as straightforward as just looking like a plumber.
Jo Brand
Narcissism falls along the axis of what psychologists call personality disorders, one of a group that includes antisocial, dependent, histrionic, avoidant and borderline personalities. But by most measures, narcissism is one of the worst, if only because the narcissists themselves are so clueless.
Jeffrey Kluger
When men organize themselves into groups, and they make rules based on common or self-interest, it’s always tangled and political.
Andrew Dominik
I’ve used Twitter now and again to try to figure something out; it’s an amazing resource. But I think you have to use it judiciously: it’s a self-selected group, so it’s important not to start thinking of it as the whole world.
Susan Orlean
Smart brands never try to appeal to more than their audience group. Assuming you’re audience is one of the segments that watches, it’s your chance to galvanize this specific group, which is larger here than anywhere else, with a bold new idea that can re-magnetize the human/brand connection for a new year.
Joshua Rogers
I think it’s one thing to be part of a very important group called the Senate of the United States and cast a vote. You’re one of 100. I think it says even more to be a governor, where you ultimately have that political responsibility and accountability to succeed.
Tom Ridge
Domination is not that solid and global kind of domination that one person exercises over others, or one group over another, but the manifold forms of domination that can be exercised within society.
Michel Foucault
Monarchies are above political parties. Sometimes political parties do things that are to the disadvantage of the country because they want to beat the other party. In Iran, where we have different religions and ethnic groups, it was a unifying factor.
Farah Diba
Black women have had to develop a larger vision of our society than perhaps any other group. They have had to understand white men, white women, and black men. And they have had to understand themselves. When black women win victories, it is a boost for virtually every segment of society.
Angela Davis
In life, you know, they do this in focus groups; if you were in such and such circumstance, what would you do? Well, you never know what you’re going do unless you’re faced with it.
Viola Davis
Group discipline produces a unified effort toward a common goal.
Pat Summitt
Any group of persons – prisoners, primitives, pilots, or patients – develop a life of their own that becomes meaningful, reasonable and normal once you get close to it.
Erving Goffman
To have a group of cloistered clinicians away completely from the broad current of professional life would be bad for teacher and worse for student. The primary work of a professor of medicine in a medical school is in the wards, teaching his pupils how to deal with patients and their diseases.
William Osler
First-world science is one science among many; by claiming to be more it ceases to be an instrument of research and turns into a (political) pressure group.
Paul Feyerabend
It was never tough [ being the new guy]. It’s just the warmest group of people [The Office stuff] you could ever hope to work with.
Ed Helms
I know that whenever a group of women are gathered together, the grandmother always makes a phantom appearance, hovering above them.
Angela Carter
Today as always, men fall into two groups: slaves and free men. Whoever does not have two-thirds of his day for himself, is a slave, whatever he may be: a statesman, a businessman, an official, or a scholar.
Friedrich Nietzsche
It seems that the only gun violence some leftists approve of is gun violence aimed at cops and other groups they see as oppressive or racist.
Gary Bauer
We need myths that will identify the individual not with his local group but with the planet.
Joseph Campbell
And political parties, overanxious for vote catching, become tolerant to intolerant groups.
Wendell Willkie
Given that the Al Qaeda core has been significantly destroyed or disabled, and that the leadership seems to be essentially on the run or in hiding, it would lead me to think that probably it is one of the less centralized groups that might be the greatest danger.
Graham T. Allison
I realised early on that there were two groups of people in the world: those who made the decisions and those who had the decisions made for them. I wanted to be one of the decision-makers.
Bronwyn Bishop
[W]hen a group of people make something sacred, the members of the cult lose the ability to think clearly about it. Morality binds and blinds.
Jonathan Haidt
In modern societies, some members of ethnic minority groups do not want to feel compelled to heed the voices of their communities when participating as citizens.
Michael Kenny
Doubts are suppressed by groups… But remember that the internal incentives that shape how the group perceives risks and rewards may be very different from the reality of the risks and rewards in the external marketplace. Those incentives can distort risk perception.
Daniel Kahneman
You guys pair up in groups of three, then line up in a circle.
Bill Peterson
The evils of mankind are caused, not by the primary aggressiveness of individuals, but by their self-transcending identification with groups whose common denominator is low intelligence and high emotionality.
Arthur Koestler
The instinctive need to be the member of a closely knit group fighting for common ideals may grow so strong that it becomes inessential what these ideals are.
Konrad Lorenz
In these times of self-directed teams, empowered employees, and “boundaryless” organizations, your worth as an individual employee will also get measured by your work group’s collective results.
Price Pritchett
I insist on group singing of the names of the Lord.
Sathya Sai Baba
Group interaction tends to amplify people’s initial inclinations
David Myers
When you’re reading Chekov, you’re in this world that he’s created. I never would have created that world. I don’t know anything about that time period or that setting or those groups of people or what those experiences were, but oh my gosh, it’s amazing to daydream on it and put yourself there.
Brit Marling
Sex and race, because they are easy and visible differences, have been the primary ways of organizing human beings into superior and inferior groups and into the cheap labour on which this system still depends.
Gloria Steinem
I’m really lucky to have the kind of people I’ve got around me. I’ve got such a great group of predominantly young people, but so diverse, and they bring different perspectives to the table. They will tell me exactly what’s on their mind.
Hillary Clinton
A certain group of adolescents evidence clear “druggie” behavior and attributes some time before they actually begin drug use.
Virgil Miller Newton
I’ve been a longtime supporter of all sorts of environmental groups.
John Densmore
It is precisely because neither individuals nor small groups can be fully self-sufficient that cooperation is necessary to human survival and flourishing.
Tom G. Palmer
My finances have been decimated by a group of people, such as my ex-attorney, my ex-business manager, and an estate planner, specifically. And they have conspired together to – to co-op my corporations, put in trustees without my knowledge.
Randy Quaid
I have friends and supporters in the Human Rights Fund and Planned Parenthood. Hillary Clinton has been around there for a very, very long time. Some of these groups are, in fact, part of the establishment.
Bernie Sanders
Democracy is not brute numbers; it is a genuine union of true individuals…the essence of democracy is creating. The technique of democracy is group organization.
Mary Parker Follett
Religion poses a danger of creating division or intolerance between groups of people. However, the gospel of Jesus lead us to three things: humble service, reconciling behavior that is neither patronizing nor self-righteous, and a love toward people who hold different beliefs than we do.
Timothy Keller
He [Bill Clinton] told me that he caddied in the same group with me in the Hot Springs Open. That’s why I voted for him, becasue he was a caddie.
Tommy Bolt
Rules are not improved by sloganeering, fact-free letter-writing campaigns, or special pleading from interest groups.
Cass Sunstein
For it is precisely because certain groups have no representation in a number of recognized political structures that their position tends to be so stable, their oppression so continuous.
Kate Millett
The most successful social media experiments-whether spearheaded by one person, a group of individuals, a company, or an institution-invite you in, treat you as a friend, and make you feel at home. Look around, they say, and tell us how we can make things better; get to know us. Get involved and tell us what you think.
Melinda Blau
Food … love … mother … career … Live every day to the fullest. Partake of the four basic guilt groups.
Cathy Guisewite
I was perhaps one of the few people that were not part of [Pablo Escobar] group of yes-men because I was not a direct beneficiary of the violence that his actions generated.
Juan Pablo Escobar
One of my pet peeves is that sometimes the talents of my band get overlooked because, and it was the same problem that Frank Zappa had, with a lot of groups that use humor, people don’t realize there’s a lot of craft behind the comedy.
Al Yankovic
Do not join encounter groups. If you enjoy being made to feel inadequate, call your mother.
Liz Smith
I know it’s very idealistic and utopian, but I believe we need to just let everyone not be judged in terms of religion, groups or nations or region.
Shahrukh Khan
I went to sexaholics anonymous for six months. For research. I wanted to see the structure of the groups, how they were conducted, and what the atmosphere was like, and also to be able to describe the people as human beings, rather than as the dirty jokes that they are in our culture.
Chuck Palahniuk
You have this idea that you think is awesome. You want to have that broadest group you possibly can. You don’t want to just talk to 1 type of person and learn that, you want to get familiar with the space.
Emmett Shear
To single out a particular group and say we can’t make a joke about them is almost a form of prejudice and it’s kind of patronizing.
Sacha Baron Cohen
Law in origin was merely a codification of the power of dominant groups, and did not aim at anything that to a modern man would appear to be justice
Bertrand Russell
There are self-awareness groups, to help you discover who you really are … encounter groups, to help you deal with who you really are … assertiveness training groups to help you stand up for who you really are … Suddenly, the only way to become an individual is to join a group.
Cathy Guisewite
Three groups spend other people’s money: children, thieves, politicians. All three need supervision.
Dick Armey
I think the scary thing is that there is in place already a sprawling infrastructure of advocacy groups, think tanks, academics and candidates and politicians funded by the Kochs and other deep-pocketed groups on the far right ready to attack Hillary Clinton.
Jane Mayer
Feelings are the fine instruments which shape decision-making in an animal cursed and blessed with intelligence, and the freedom which is its corollary. They are signals directing us toward goodness, safety, pleasure, and group survival.
Willard Gaylin
We libertarians are not the spokesmen for any ethnic or economic class; we are the spokesmen for all classes, for all of the public; we strive to see all of these groups united, hand-in-hand, in opposition to the plundering and privileged minority that constitutes the rulers of the State.
Murray Rothbard
We all went to Kelsey’s wedding, and yeah, we go to parties. We also go to each other’s house. A group of us got together over at Kelsey’s and just read through some plays just for the fun of it. That may not be everyone’s idea of a good time, but we had a good time.
David Hyde Pierce
In my cranky old age, I actually prefer recording alone now, on ‘The Simpsons,’ for example, because I find that the director can just focus on what I’m doing and I can do a lot of variations. A lot of times, when I record with a group, I’ll stay after class for another hour or two.
Hank Azaria
Indeed, a major source of objection to a free economy is precisely that it… gives people what they want instead of what a particular group thinks they ought to want. Underlying most arguments against the free market is a lack of belief in freedom itself.
Milton Friedman
I surround myself with a talented group of people that are opinionated and interesting. I try to remain very open to what others have to say.
Anna Wintour
I have hundreds of poems memorized. Mostly by others, but also my own. I use the poems when I lead retreats for management groups on topics like creating teams, or coming up with a more entrepreneurial system, or creating more excitement.
David Whyte
Coalition forces have encountered serious violence in some areas of Iraq. Our military commanders report that this violence is being insticated by three groups.
George W. Bush
Substantially fewer films will be produced over the next year or two. And a significant portion of the production costs of the reduced slate will be borne by hedge funds and other investment groups.
Peter Bart
If poems very different from my own bring pleasure to a group of readers, who am I to say that the poems should have been written differently?
James Arthur
I wanted to make a human monster. His name is Coffin Baby. The idea is based on a group of people from Pasadena whose names I can’t mention. His mother died and during the funeral, this baby came out of her in the coffin
Tobe Hooper
Malcolm X envisions a broad-based pluralistic united front, which is spearheaded by the Nation of Islam, but mobilizing integrationist organizations, non-political organizations, civic groups, all under the banner of building black empowerment, human dignity, economic development, political mobilization.
Manning Marable
Powerful groups with anti-Christian worldviews dominate major media and major educational institutions.
Marvin Olasky
A group needs enemies, because without enemies its identity cannot continue to be defined.
Eckhart Tolle
If the individuals who make up a group have personal egos, and their identities lie in these egos, then their egoic identities will shift to the group. It might look as if they are losing their personal egos, but the ego simply shifts to the group.
Eckhart Tolle
Therefore, let me reiterate that the rate should not meet the interests of a specific group or one or two groups, it should meet the fundamental development interests of the economy itself.
Vladimir Putin
[Mitt] Romney did not have and never did have a large group of supporters that were personally attached, connected, and loyal to him.
Rush Limbaugh
Thus the evidence given by those five new thigh bones of the morphological and functional distinctness of Pithecanthropus erectus furnishes proof, at the same time, of its close affinity with the gibbon group of anthropoid apes.
Eugene Dubois
From there, I tried out for a community theatre play, joined an improv group… it all started opening up.
Kevin James
I just wanted to get the message that God had put into my heart into another form, because I knew the print media would reach a different group of people.
Joel Osteen
I loved working on Of Mice and Men. It was a wonderful group of people. John Malkovich is to me one of the best actors around right now-and a lot of fun to work with.
Sherilyn Fenn
The first thing is that we’re being attacked by both the Writers Guild and the Producers Guild. Both of these groups are trying to diminish the importance and strength of the director. They’re trying to do it through both frontal and side attacks.
John Frankenheimer
The key here are two little words: the word ‘or’ and the word ‘and’. Nintendo is not an or company, with games devoted to just this group or that group. We’re an and company, with games for this group and that group and for groups that don’t even call themselves gamers yet.
Reggie Fils-Aime
The Marines I have seen around the world have the cleanest bodies, the filthiest minds, the highest morale, and the lowest morals of any group of animals I have ever seen. Thank God for the United States Marine Corps!
Eleanor Roosevelt
I want to state upfront, unequivocally and without doubt: I do not believe that any racial, ethnic or gender group has an advantage in sound judging. I do believe that every person has an equal opportunity to be a good and wise judge, regardless of their background or life experiences.
Sonia Sotomayor
A man who thinks of himself as belonging to a particular national group in America has not yet become an American. And the man who goes among you to trade upon your nationality is no worthy son to live under the Stars and Stripes.
Woodrow Wilson
Fundamentalist groups like Christian Embassy have infiltrated the very top of the U.S. military and gained positions of influence in the Pentagon.
Darrel Ray
All baseball fans can be divided into two groups: those who come to batting practice and the others. Only those in the first category have much chance of amounting to anything.
Thomas Boswell
If you chose a particular religion, you were siding with the government religion of whatever region you were in. That’s never been true in America, but also, the United States also has so many more immigrant groups which also tends to imply more religious diversity right away.
Susan Jacoby
I knew I was gay when I was around 13. There wasn’t the internet, there weren’t support groups, AIDS was everywhere. I mean, it was really dark.
Rufus Wainwright
I feel I’m doing God’s work switching people from group plans to individual insurance.
Paul Zane Pilzer
I am interested in the paradox between identity and uniformity, in the power and vulnerability of each individual and each group. It is in this paradox that I try to visualize by concentrating on poses, attitudes, gestures, and gazes.
Rineke Dijkstra
Any denomination or church group that forsakes inerrancy will end up shipwrecked. It is impossible to prevent the surrender of other important doctrinal teachings of the Word of God when inerrancy is gone.
Francis Schaeffer
I am a member of that small, little group that covers – I`m a member of the White House correspondents association. I go to the White House every day.
Donald Trump
A people who extend civil liberties only to preferred groups start down the path either to dictatorship of the right or the left.
William O. Douglas
This group came on stage, Big Brother and the Holding Company, and this whirling dervish, this electrifying white soul singer was so riveting. And I’m seeing this and I said, ‘My God, this is a musical revolution.’
Clive Davis
People in the political world have every incentive to say things that lead voters away from a clear economic understanding of issues. What has happened more and more is that organized groups have more and more reasons to say things that don’t make any economic sense.
Thomas Sowell
The ability for a group of people to do remarkable things hinges on how well those people can pull together as a team.
Simon Sinek
I had a brother six years older than me, so I wasn’t just listening to teenybopper stuff. My brother had the cooler music, but my parents had the Burt Bacharach, Tom Jones, the Association, the Fifth Dimension; these groups were un-cool, but I secretly loved them.
Jill Sobule
Friday is my night for letting my hair down, and once a month a group of my old male friends will come down and stay at our house in Hampshire.
Rupert Penry-Jones
As a group, anthropologists are not too fond of people who work in the business world.
Helen Fisher
The way we make money as a group is that we don’t pay a lot for anything, and most of the stocks we buy have low expectations.
Joel Greenblatt
Individual commitment to a group effort – that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work.
Vince Lombardi
Nothing is so dangerous for our security as large groups of desperate people.
Marianne Williamson
They show that roughly two-thirds of a group of neurotic patients will recover or improve to a marked extent within about two years of the onset of their illness, whether they are treated by means of psychotherapy or not.
Hans Eysenck
The warrior may fight for gold or for an immediate gain, or for something to take home for the winter to feed the family. The soldier is part of a more complex society. He’s fighting for a group ethic of some sort.
C. J. Cherryh
I have spoken to a whole group of millionaires, head executives at Microsoft. Boy did I chew those guys out.
Jack LaLanne
Comedy is a group activity, a verbal orgy.
Chris Rock
They [ Factory Records] are always looking for the next group, the next big thing, to bring the record sales in and for them to promote and everything, but Factory just sign who they want to, put records by who they want to out, package it how they want to, how they like doing it. It’s just run like that.
Ian Curtis
No one has ever proved that a human being, through his descent from a certain group of people, must of necessity have certain mental characteristics.
Franz Boas
Every man, however obscure, however far removed from the general recognition, is one of a group of men impressible for good, and impressible for evil, and it is in the nature of things that he cannot really improve himself without in some degree improving other men.
Charles Dickens
I don’t do album covers or CD covers for groups or musicians I don’t like or have no interest in.
Robert Crumb
Something in me was always watching life from the outside, permanently obsessed with the notion of belonging vs. not-belonging [to a group]. It did not make for a happy childhood, but it was excellent training for a writer.
Barbara Kingsolver
I’m not a caterer. I just have to stay with my creative convictions. At some point, you have to just get past the special-interest groups and do what you’re there to do, which is make a movie.
Ron Howard
American cities are kind of difficult contexts to work in. They are politically complex. There are a lot of different interest groups. It takes immense political skill to get anything done at all.
William J. Mitchell
Defy your own group. Rebel against yourself.
Cathy Guisewite
Christianity thinks of human individuals not as mere members of a group or items in a list, but as organs in a body-different from one another and each contributing what no other could.
C. S. Lewis
Statistics may be defined as the discipline concerned with the treatment of numerical data derived from groups of individuals.
Peter Armitage
You should view the world as a conspiracy run by a very closely-knit group of nearly omnipotent people, and you should think of those people as yourself and your friends.
Robert Anton Wilson
A modern revolutionary group heads for the television station, not the factory. It concentrates its energy on infiltrating and changing the image system.
Abbie Hoffman
Consumer groups fought hard to provide investor protections for ‘special entities’ such as pension funds, schools, and municipalities who purchase swaps. No comparable protection exists in the futures market.
Daniel L. Doctoroff
It’s very difficult to speak to a large group of people these days and not offend someone. I know people walk around with their feelings on their shoulders waiting for you to say something – ahh – did you hear that? And they can’t hear anything else you say. The PC police are out in force at all times.
Benjamin Carson
I usually write about ordinary people and ordinary things, but Paul Farmer is the least ordinary person I’ve ever met… He’s the leader of a small group of people who hope to cure a sick world, and I hope my book can help in some small way.
Tracy Kidder
I had BEEN making futuristic records way before a lot of the groups that came out, but now everybody is running to make their albums sound new, but it sounds too made up.
Kool Keith
Egoic consciousness is the one we all normally operate with, until we are told there is something else! Every culture teaches egoic consciousness in different ways. At that level it is all about me, my preferences, my choices, my needs, my desires and me and my group as the central reference point.
Richard Rohr
It’s important to adhere to the principles of a large group of people that truly believe these principles, and if they believe them, then that’s good enough for me.
Donald Trump
The physicist can never subject an isolated hypothesis to experimental test, but only a whole group of hypotheses.
Pierre Duhem
The best part of it for me is the idea that this group of young men, who came together and believed in themselves, bought the team concept completely, took the names off the back of the jerseys, checked the egos at the door.
Tom Coughlin
To cheapen the lives of any group of men [or women], cheapens the lives of all men [and women], even our own. This is a law of human psychology, or human nature. And it will not be repealed by our wishes, nor will it be merciful to our blindness.
William Pickens
I remember filling my car up in London when an 85-year-old man said to me, ‘You’ve done our age group proud.’ That made me laugh. I’m not quite there yet!
Tony Blackburn
The keystone of the Fascist doctrine is its conception of the State, of its essence, its functions, and its aims. For Fascism the State is absolute, individuals and groups relative.
Benito Mussolini
In Uzbekistan, hundreds of protesters were recently killed under the corrupt regime of President Karimov in what human rights groups are calling a massacre.
Ed Markey
This group had a kind of dark glamour within the castle. They were a motley collection; a mixture of the weak seeking protection, the ambitious seeking some shared glory, and the thuggish gravitating toward a leader who could show them more refined forms of cruelty.
J. K. Rowling
The symptoms of fascist thinking are colored by environment and adapted to immediate circumstances. But always and everywhere they can be identified by their appeal to prejudice and by the desire to play upon the fears and vanities of different groups in order to gain power.
Henry A. Wallace
I was looking to do a comedy and found a group of guys that were really supportive of my interests in it, though it was a little outside of my wheel house. Strangely, I visited the set of Knocked Up and met Seth [Rogen] and Evan [Goldberg] and Judd[Apatow] and Shauna [Robertson].
Seth Rogen
For me, I always go back to when I was 10 years old and, I think between the time I was 10 and going to high school, were some of the greatest moments for me, because I had a group of friends that I was inseparable with, who we would make movies with all the time.
Michael Giacchino
I want to be able to say what’s on my mind and in my heart and what I think is helpful and useful without somebody getting angry, some special interest group deciding this is the time to silence a voice of dissent and attack affiliates, attack sponsors. I’m sort of done with that.
Laura Schlessinger
A Haydn symphony had a meaning for the social group that listened to it. A Mahler symphony had a meaning for the man who composed it. Here is the difference between the classical and romantic attitudes to art.
Anthony Burgess
I didn’t know I wanted to do films until I started to do them. Very few films are made in Mexico and film-making belonged to a very specific group, a clique.
Gael Garcia Bernal
So the name of a group has to say something. The name has to be strong.
Jim Capaldi
The [nonprofit] sector is the natural home of nonmajoritarian impulses, movements and values. It comfortably harbors innovators, maverick movements, groups which feel they must fight for their place in the sun, and critics of both liberal conservative persuasion.
John W. Gardner
They represent tomorrow’s cigarette business. . . As this 14-24 age group matures, they will account for a key share of the total cigarette volume — for at least the next 25 years.
R. J. Reynolds
Enlightened groups can exist, as long as the individuals’ sense of identity is not derived from a mentally defined image of us.
Eckhart Tolle
I did not want vocal groups. I was not interested in singing with a group because there’s too much problem with groups in the first place.
Carl Gardner
Single men and determined groups have been the only makers of space in which man could walk free.
L. Ron Hubbard
I use many different gadgets connected with computers; I use PCs, laptops and a Palm Pilot. I also use the Internet to visit websites, especially within Polish-language Internet. I usually go to political discussion groups and sites – of course, as I use my real name, people never believe that they are chatting with me!
Lech Walesa
It’s becoming clear that the world is listening, so now we’re trying to get new groups of people talking.
Ethan Zuckerman
The myth is the public domain and the dream is the private myth. If your private myth, your dream, happens to coincide with that of the society, you are in good accord with your group. If it isn’t, you’ve got a long adventure in the dark forest ahead of you.
Joseph Campbell
With the groups who asked me to join them – like the Rolling Stones, Spirit, David Bowie, and Blood, Sweat & Tears – I said no right away because I was way too much into my own thing.
Shuggie Otis
Affirmative action was designed to recognize the uniquely difficult journey of African-Americans. This policy was justifiable and understandable, even to those who came from white cultural groups that had also suffered in socio-economic terms from the Civil War and its aftermath.
Jim Webb
Things work well when a group of people know each other, and things break down when it’s a bunch of random people interacting.
Jimmy Wales
Digital imaging allows both groups to rise above the limitations of mess and clutter and mechanics, and apply our talents to creating images limited only by our imaginations.
Buffy Sainte-Marie
I didn’t really know what to expect, but I thought there aren’t a lot of rap groups that can say they have a documentary done about them, so my attitude was like, ‘Shoot, why not?’ I’m sure there are a lot of people that would like to take our place. I felt like we should all embrace it.
Phife Dawg
I am going to name a group of my kids after my favorite cartoons, I am going to name them after Transformers.
Dane Cook
A group of reptilian humanoids, called the Babylonian Brotherhood, control humanity.
David Icke
I’m much better known in France and Germany and Spain than I am in the U.S. When I go to Russia, I get mobbed; I have groups of fans waiting for me out in the hotel lobby, waiting for me to come down off the elevator. In China, I almost got beat up because people were trying to get me to do a drawing for them.
Bill Plympton
What is happening to teachers now across this nation is a disgrace. The attacks on them are a blot on our nation. Teachers and students are not different interest groups. Anyone who demeans teachers demeans education and hurts children.
Diane Ravitch
There just needs to be a gay rapper. He doesn’t have to be flamboyant, just a rapper who identifies as gay – who’s better than everybody. Unfortunately hip-hop is so competitive that in order for fringe groups to get in, you gotta be better than whoever’s the best.
Talib Kweli
It’s worth being clear – you know, I think that the ideas that somebody like Richard Spencer endorses and that other members of the self-identified white nationalist groups endorse – those ideas really are repellent to most people.
Evan Osnos
Neither democracy nor effective representation is possible until each participant in the group…devotes a measurable part of his life to furthering its existence.
Lewis Mumford
I acted in junior high in the junior high school group, and then when I got into senior high I was, you know, the main actor of the senior high school.
Richard Foreman
CRATEL is a center with a two-fold mission – to explore technology as an expressive element and to use technology to bridge gaps between diverse groups of people.
John Harrison
Ultimately, there is no entity called ‘government’; there are only people forming themselves into groups called ‘governments’ and acting in a ‘governmental’ manner.
Murray Rothbard
At the outset, at least, all three groups had something else to recommend them, as well: They were headquartered 3,000 miles away from the East Side of Manhattan.
Tom Wolfe
If you cannot find a group whose consciousness matches your own, be the source of one. Others of like consciousness will be drawn to you.
Neale Donald Walsch
You know the way Washington works. Once you start floating ideas, they are immediately attacked by all the different interest groups before the ideas can be brought to fruition.
Judd Gregg
There’s always been this tradition of satirizing these rich groups of people.
Kevin Kwan
In principle… no government in the world can accept an armed terrorist group, some of them coming from abroad, controlling streets and villages in the name of jihad.
Walid Muallem
Any group, any group that can’t work with all other groups, if they are genuinely interested in solving the problems of the Negro collectively why, I don’t think that that group is really sincerely motivated toward reaching a solution.
Malcolm X
Some of the worst violence in the world today between estranged religious and ethnic groups happens not on the battlefields. It happens smack in the middle of living rooms and between people who share a lot, who have a lot in common.
Miroslav Volf
As the Republican nominee, it was Romney’s job to find a way to speak to some of those groups of voters and offer practical solutions to their difficulties that both resonated with them and sounded plausible to them.
John Podhoretz
Just because you have a group of scientists who stood up and said here is the fact. Galileo got outvoted for a spell.
Rick Perry
Providentially, learned habits can be unlearned, especially in the context of moral groups.
Michael Shermer
I do think there’s gonna always be a group of country people that are always going to love the old traditional sound.
Dolly Parton
At the time, we thought it was a nice way to say something unique about the group to make us different from all the other bands kicking around in London.
Gerry Beckley
Bumble really sets the stage for an empowered and modern way to connect, which educated and forward-thinking groups of people have really gravitated to.
Whitney Wolfe Herd
The political establishment that is trying to stop us is the same group responsible for our disastrous trade deals, massive illegal immigration and economic and foreign policies that have bled America dry.
Donald Trump
The real power of Jazz is that a group of people can come together and create improvised art and negotiate their agendas… and that negotiation is the art
Wynton Marsalis
I first came to London as a musician, and when my group broke up, I did ‘Guys and Dolls’ at the Watford Palace theatre. After that, Ned Sherrin found me and brought me to the West End to do one of his shows. The work went from strength to strength, so I thought: ‘This is where the world wants me; I’ll stay.
Clarke Peters
Ask a kid who’s struggling in math if he likes being in a mixed-level class, and he’ll tell you he feels like a moron. Ask the math genius if he likes being in a mixed-level class, and he’ll tell you he’s sick of doing all the work during group projects. Sometimes, it’s better to sort like with like.
Jodi Picoult
There will never be a replacement for that ongoing physical contact. But I don’t think blogging is meant to replace the face-to-face of friendships and meetings. Blogging is a way to keep in touch with a larger group of people on an ongoing basis, in a more efficient way.
Indra Nooyi
I did not have a date to the prom. I went to my junior prom alone, and my senior prom, I was doing my first movie. I went in a limousine with, like, a bunch of people to my junior prom. It was a group date.
Zooey Deschanel
Big Bang is the group I want to be with till I die. I want us to be five members. Forever.
Seungri
I don’t think of writing my poems for China or for the world. I mainly think of a small audience of friends and people I know. I am writing for that small group. They are not necessarily going to be able to read it, but that’s what I have in mind when I write.
Bei Dao
Since inequalities of privilege are greater than could possibly be defended rationally, the intelligence of privileged groups is usually applied to the task of inventing specious proofs for the theory that universal values spring from, and that general interests are served by, the special privileges which they hold.
Reinhold Niebuhr
What remarkable strength is shown by the person who can lay aside personal prejudices and work without friction with a group of individuals with whom he or she is not in accord on many subjects.
Napoleon Hill
We admit as many genera as there are different groups of natural species of which the fructification has the same structure.
Carl Linnaeus
Well, in Japan, I have got a group of musicians that I have worked with a lot, that concentrate just on the hardcore stuff, say, that Naked City has been working on. We have like a repertoire of sixty songs now.
John Zorn
A play presents a self-enclosed little world for the audience to examine. It’s an opportunity to look objectively at a group of people, to assess them, to react to them, and to measure oneself against them, to ask ‘Am I like that?’
Wallace Shawn
Reconciliation is one of the hardest words. We almost forget, but there’s always a little group that can’t.
Roma Tearne
The value of love will always be stronger than the value of hate. Any nation or group of nations which employs hatred eventually is torn to pieces by hatred.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
People tend to stick to their own size group because it’s easier on the neck. Unless they are romantically involved, in which case the size difference is sexy. It means: I am willing to go the distance for you.
Miranda July
I tend not to make fun of religious groups anywhere I play.
Maz Jobrani
America is a mosaic not of groups but of individuals, each of whom carries a host of cultural influences, some chosen, some inherited, some absorbed by osmosis. That mosaic is held together by the pursuit of happiness, the most powerful mortar ever conceived. Left alone, it will long endure.
Virginia Postrel
The greater the loyalty of a group toward the group, the greater is the motivation among the members to achieve the goals of the group, and the greater the probability that the group will achieve its goals.
Rensis Likert
We ask for peace and freedom for the many men and women subject to old and new forms of enslavement on the part of criminal individuals and groups.
Pope Francis
I like that when you create you really do create with a very small group of people, and in that space, before it goes out to all these people, that’s what I love.
Jake Gyllenhaal
And now the forces marshaled around the concept of the group have declared a war of extermination on that preciousness, the mind of man.
John Steinbeck
Iran’s continued drive to develop nuclear capabilities, including troubling enrichment activities and past work on weaponization documented by the IAEA, and its continued support to groups like Hezbollah, Hamas and other terrorist organizations make clear that the regime in Tehran is a very grave threat to all of us.
Leon Panetta
We black women are the single group in the West intact. And anybody can see we’re pretty shaky. We are, however (all praises), the only group that derives its identity from itself.
Nikki Giovanni
When most people see the word “radical,” they think that it must refer to something left wing. Some people also may think of it as referring to far right-wing marginal groups. But here we have a president of the United States [George W. Bush] at the center of power, sitting in the White House, who is a radical.
Sidney Blumenthal
These are the multinationals, like General Motors and Nestle; these are the big industrial groups that weigh, on the monetary scale, much more than big countries like Egypt.
Ahmed Ben Bella
A nonviolent life is an act of self-examination and self-purification, whether by an individual, group or nation.
Mahatma Gandhi
There is a difficulty in combating the type of terror that is perpetrated by groups of radical Jews. It’s terror from within, and it is difficult to bring these perpetrators to justice; we need to create tools in order to combat this style of terrorism.
Reuven Rivlin
If we build something great, like we have at Travelers Group so far, a whole host of people benefit.
Sanford I. Weill
I try to tell each group that it is not alone, and that the very people who are disheartened by the absence of a national movement are themselves proof of the potential for such a movement.
Howard Zinn
The Beatles were a group made up of four very complex men, and my small hand could not have broken these men up.
Yoko Ono
I’m more encouraged by the saplings: new music groups, tiny new venues, entrepreneurial musician-composers who aren’t waiting to be discovered but are instead building their own Establishment.
David Edelstein
I recently did a reading at an elementary school in Ottawa, and one of the children asked me if I was a girl. I said yes. Another child commented that I had a deep voice. I responded: “Can girls have deep voices?” There was a pause and then the group responded, “Yes!”
Vivek Shraya
Never short of guns and guerrillas, Afghanistan has proven fertile ground for a host of insurgent groups in addition to the Taliban.
Anand Gopal
Fashion has a political role insofar as following it can give you the impression to belonging to a certain social group or a private club.
Carine Roitfeld
I think it’s really different for me whether I’m touring as part of a larger group or if I’m touring on my own. It’s a completely different experience, because when I tour on my own, it’s really just me by myself, and I make nice relationships with people.
Julia Kent
I’m all for getting together with men and women in small groups around Scripture and letting it just wash over us, but for me, I’ve been meeting with the same ten guys for like 15 years now, but we don’t have a Bible study every Friday, we have a Bible doing.
Bob Goff
The kind of group mentality that we had lived under since the Second World War is starting to erupt, and the craving for individualism is now much stronger. It’s not as taboo anymore, as it was when I was younger.
Nicolas Winding Refn
I play the ukulele. I have a great group of friends, and we do things like have battles of the bands – me sometimes on ukulele, but mostly on drums.
Mike Myers
Losers assemble in small groups & complain, winners assemble as a team & find ways to win.
Bill Parcells
There’s such an odd, eclectic group of people that make up the town of Plymouth, New Hampshire. I don’t think I could avoid not coming out of there with a pretty good sense of humor.
Eliza Coupe
An interesting thing about book groups, it seems to me, is that there is no correlation between a brilliant book and a brilliant discussion. The first seems sometimes even to undermine the second.
Stacy Schiff
We should remember that the Pashtuns are the largest ethnic group in Afghanistan. Of course, many of them did support the Taliban. But you cannot equate all Pashtuns with the Taliban.
Ahmed Rashid
There’s a whole group of Christians who believe the individual is more important, but in the end I don’t think that’s what Christ was talking about.
Lewis Black
Anyone determined to find another person or group inferior can always find whole lists of grounds that demonstrate inferiority because we are all inferior to the ideals of humanness we have erected.
Marilyn French
The greatest threat now is a 9/11 occurring with a group of terrorists armed not with airline tickets and box cutters, but with a nuclear weapon in the middle of one of our own cities…there’s a high probability of such an attempt.
Dick Cheney
The strength of the group is the strength of the leaders.
Vince Lombardi
When I’m out with a group I hide in the corner and get legless. I just make sure my friends shield me.
Samantha Mumba
UNICEF is doing amazing things here. They’re helping these groups of kids to be mine aware, and using drama and workshops to teach children in all of the schools in the area to be aware of mines and what to do if they find one, and if somebody’s hurt, not to rush in – all of the essential things that kids need to know.
Ewan McGregor
The proliferation of support groups suggests to me that too many Americans are growing up in homes that do not contain a grandmoth.
Florence King
The banner of the project is ‘Casa de Colores.’ Under that banner, I’m going to invite people to do a lot of good things. Perhaps working in groups, working on poetry.
Juan Felipe Herrera
Social justice is collectivism. Social justice is the rights of a group. It denies individual responsibility. It’s a negation of individual responsibility, so social justice is totally contrary to the Word of God.
Ted Cruz
There’s a whole industry of conservatives saying, ‘Ah, it’s those damn liberals,’ and a whole group of liberals saying, ‘It’s all those damn conservatives.’.
Peter Jennings
If you look at little kids and wild animals, these are two groups of things that whenever I’m with them forces me to be in the moment.
Dominic Monaghan
When you’re a bed wetter there’s only one group of people you can feel better than, bed shitters, and unfortunately they’re hard to come by.
Sarah Silverman
I started on the use of the Internet for scientific communication. Our research group was one of the very first to make really systematic use of it as a way of managing research projects.
Joshua Lederberg
Madness is rare in individuals – but in groups, parties, nations, and ages it is the rule.
Friedrich Nietzsche
You can play a particular sport as long as you take good care of your body and you’re confident enough and still have that hunger to where you want to be a part of an organization, a group of individuals where you feel you can contribute to the success of that team.
Alonzo Mourning
We’re given the springboard of the text, a plane ticket, told to report to Alabama, and there’s a group of people all ready to make a film and it’s a marvelous life.
Albert Finney
I’m a natural novelist. I’m interested in the person and the group, and how they mesh. And one of the ways I don’t want them to mesh is for the person to be subsumed into the group.
Jane Smiley
If any group of citizens is uniquely unqualified to tell someone else how to vote, it’s those of us who live in the sheltered, privileged arena of celebrity hood……Trust me, one’s view of the world isn’t any clearer from the back seat of a limo.
Pat Sajak
Few novels or plays could exist without at least one troublemaker in the group, and perhaps life couldn’t either.
Mignon McLaughlin
Smaller groups of people can establish trusting relationships.
Patrick Lencioni
The function of Government must be to favor no small group at the expense of its duty to protect the rights of personal freedom and of private property of all its citizens.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
There’s a remarkable power about reading together, reading collectively, that’s brought out by reading groups.
Matthew Pearl
When you’re onstage, you’re acutely aware of the reaction of a particular group of people, because it’s like a wave.
Cate Blanchett
Even though New York is the safest big city in the nation, there are still far too many illegal guns on our streets. Nearly all of them arrive from out of state – and most are sold by a small group of rogue gun dealers who refuse to obey federal laws.
Michael Bloomberg
Ideally, I’d like every issue to include a diverse group of stories that meet the qualifications sketched above, but covering a wide range of specific matter and flavour.
Stanley Schmidt
Food, love, career, and mothers, the four major guilt groups.
Cathy Guisewite
The ultimate freedom for creative groups is the freedom to experiment with new ideas. Some skeptics insist that innovation is expensive. In the long run, innovation is cheap. Mediocrity is expensive—and autonomy can be the antidote.”   TOM KELLEY General Manager, IDEO
Daniel H. Pink
I think sometimes maybe you’re going to connect with the audience more than others, but the journey is about getting all there is to get out of this group of people.
Tom Petty
Islamophobia, in all its guises, seeks to minimise the importance of the individual and maximise the importance of the group. Yet our instinctive stance ought to be one of suspicion towards such endeavours. For individuals are undeniably real. Groups, on the other hand, are assertions of opinion.
Mohsin Hamid
As a gay Jewish white South African, I belong to quite a lot of minority groups. You constantly have to question who you are, what you are and whether you have the courage to be who you are.
Antony Sher
I don’t think religious groups should be allowed to apply for federal funds to start new ministries they have not been doing before the funding was available.
Jerry Falwell
I would not have so many scripts being driven by demographics. The play’s the thing – not the 18-35 year old male age group.
Stephen Tobolowsky
Being a monarchist – saying that one small group is born more worthy of respect than another – is just as warped and strange as being a racist.
Julie Burchill
I regularly read Internet user groups filled with messages from people trying to solve software incompatibility problems that, in terms of complexity, make the U.S. Tax Code look like Dr. Seuss.
Dave Barry
Democracy has turned out to be not majority rule but rule by well-organized and well-connected minority groups who steal from the majority.
Llewellyn Rockwell
Every other group helps its own members. Women should, too. Be sisters.
Gloria Feldt
Whenever you have a few setbacks, the idea that half as many children are dying now as back in 1990 and so… it was over 12 million a year, now it’s less than 6 million a year. We have a clear path to get that under 3 million a year and we know what to do. And this generation of young Africans is a very large group.
Bill Gates
I assure my fellow citizens that the vast majority of Muslims experience the same fear they do. ISIS and Al Qaeda are my enemies, too. Most of the people killed by these groups have been Muslim.
Debbie Almontaser
Teachers are more than any other group the guardians of civilization.
Bertrand Russell
Appalachia is still, for American musicians, a kind of fountain of youth we always go back to, the old home place to a group of artists who represent the quintessence of American independence, fortitude, genius, and madness.
Paul Burch
There are many films in which minority groups are caricatured to the point where truth is all together lost. There are many more films, good in general, but untrue in their presentation of the Negro’s life as totally divorced from the Caucasian’s or the Caucasian’s from the Negro.
John Garfield
‘Prison Notebooks’ gives me a basic understanding of how power can influence people through cultural products and intellectual groups, so they will voluntarily support the hegemony.
Okky Madasari
I don’t believe in quotas. America was founded on a philosophy of individual rights, not group rights.
Clarence Thomas
Your political system is actually too democratic. The fact that Americans vote on every bill and proposition can prolong bigotry indefinitely, especially where it is aimed at minority groups.
George Michael
I never thought that I would support myself with art – everyone in the Group of Seven had day jobs. I became a geography teacher so that I could get free field trips into the wilderness to paint.
Robert Bateman
I think this group of people came together in a way that they haven’t before in 2007. I’m very optimistic we can do something … I want to get there, I want to support this.
Sherrod Brown
You don’t know who theВ next groupВ isВ that’sВ unpopular.В The Bill of Rights isn’tВ for the promВ queen. The bill of rights isn’tВ for the highВ schoolВ quarterback. The Bill of Rights isВ for the leastВ amongВ us. The Bill of RightsВ isВ for minorities. The Bill of Rights is forВ thoseВ who have minority opinions.
Rand Paul
I think more than anything, you should do what you love. If you love classical playwrights, seek out companies or places that are doing that. If you love modern playwrights, try to find groups who are writing new plays or working on new plays. If you love television, watch as much theater and film as you can.
Juliet Rylance
Many Americans who supported the initial thrust of civil rights, as represented by the Brown v. Board of Education decision and the Civil Rights Act of 1964, later felt betrayed as the original concept of equal individual opportunity evolved toward the concept of equal group results.
Thomas Sowell
With the initial focus groups and the initial look-sees, the Rams are a very popular team in Southern California. And so one of the reasons that it was attractive to us to work against them is because they have that good flavor.
Jerry Jones
I was a Stalinist in the ’30s. I had come from a Russian revolutionary family who simply were elated by the fact that the Czar was overthrown by this group known as the Bolsheviks. My family identified with anybody who overthrew the Czar. So they identified themselves intuitively with Bolshevism.
Murray Bookchin
Unfortunately, we have seen terrorist groups use social media to spread hateful propaganda, to recruit members, and to incite violence with alarming effectiveness.
Ted Deutch
Women are incredible in groups together. Terrifying. Men have nothing on them.
Michael Hutchence
I like to define networking as cultivating mutually beneficial, give-and-take, win-win relationships… The end result may be to develop a large and diverse group of people who will gladly and continually refer a lot of business to us, while we do the same for them.
Bob Burg
Groups are grammatical fictions; only individuals exist, and each individual is different.
Robert Anton Wilson
Put simply, we are still at war with radical Islamic groups and an ideological movement that can’t be ignored nor wished away.
Michael T. Flynn
It is in our interest to crush ISIS, terrorist groups like the al-Nusra front and Ahrar ash-Sham, and Iran’s puppet Assad.
Mike Pompeo
If you love what you do and if you believe in what you do, others will share your enthusiasm. Passionate people find their way to the Virgin Group, and when they do, we snap them up and try to keep them within the family.
Richard Branson
I think we learn slowly as a group, but we learn. The ozone layer is still there.
Eden Robinson
Support Group featured a rotating cast of characters in various states of tumor-driven unwellness. Why did the cast rotate? A side effect of dying.
John Green
‘The Unity Band’ project has been life-changing for me. I have led many groups of talented musicians, but this is unlike anything else.
Pat Metheny
We will be a better country when each religious group can trust its members to obey the dictates of their own religious faith without assistance from the legal structure of the country.
Margaret Mead
If God had meant us to have group sex, I guess he’d have given us all more organs.
Malcolm Bradbury
Through electing officials that will protect the Constitution and commit themselves to the rights of the people and the health of the nation, we will be able to ensure that no group of ideologues and no private sector institution can coopt our rights, take us into senseless wars and steal the nation from its people.
Harry Belafonte
I’ve never been the type of guy that had a lot of friends or was part of the cool group.
Jim Jefferies
I’m yet to discover any form of theocracy that isn’t homophobic, that isn’t bigoted to the out group.
Maajid Nawaz
A new poll out taken by a Republican group that shows most Democrats prefer socialism to capitalism. Those terms don’t mean what they did maybe 40, 50 years ago.
Chris Matthews
I believe there are too many children who need loving parents to deny one group of people adoption rights. A child will benefit from a healthy, loving home, whether the parents are gay or not.
Barack Obama
We have a group of friends of the museum who try to raise, if they can, periodically something to help us. Of course, the main thing about a building like this is its upkeep. It needs central heating and it needs central air conditioning.
Katherine Dunham
My saddest decision in football was leaving Paul Gascoigne out of the 1998 World Cup finals. But he wasn’t fit enough and once that decision is made, as a manager and a group of players, you forget about who isn’t there and focus on the job.
Glenn Hoddle
I was born in Alabama and my first live music experiences were in church. Every Sunday we watched regional gospel groups on television singing their hearts out.
Tommy Shaw
Do you want to know that your new life is real? Commit yourself to a local group of saved sinners. Try to love them. Don’t just do it for three weeks. Don’t just do it for six months. Do it for years. And I think you’ll find out, and others will, too, whether or not you love God. The truth will show itself
Mark Dever
I was born again. It happens to Episcopalians. Sometimes it doesn’t hit you till you’re 47 years old. It changed my whole life for the better… I spent a lot of time giving Christian witness all over the country to church groups and stuff.
Ann B. Davis
I think the Christian Coalition could be extremely dangerous. We should always be concerned when any group wants to impose their doctrinal concerns on all. To an extent that’s what they are trying to do.
Noam Chomsky
The close relationships we form between researchers and product groups have already shown we can move the great ideas as they come along, without a schedule, into the products.
Bill Gates
There are many animal-welfare groups that sometimes seem to forget that human beings are animals too, that we need to include them in our sphere of compassion.
Jane Goodall
Humans have a strong desire to be part of a group. That desire makes us susceptible to fads, fashions, and idea contagions.
Michael Mauboussin
In 1791, the right to bear arms to defend against an over-reaching government wasn’t theoretical. Today, it’s hard to imagine physical weapons serving the same purpose. But it’s easy to see how hacktivists might – especially if you broaden the opponents to include hate groups and rapacious multinationals.
Marcus Sakey
You realise Group Captain that this might be the most important weather forecast in history?
Dwight D. Eisenhower
That is the American experiment. An ethnic group arriving on America’s shores, to be reviled and hazed, living in squalor, or if they are lucky Squalor Heights, working hard to give their children or grandchildren the opportunity to sh*t on the next group landing on our shores.
Jon Stewart
There is a British pop group called God. At a recent book signing the lead singer introduced himself and gave me a cassette. I have heard the voice of God.
J. G. Ballard
I was in bands as a singer-guitarist-songwriter until 1980-81. So, there’s a bunch of stuff. A lot of the stuff is hard to come by-stuff by the Special Interest Group and the Zobo Funn Band. The Zobo Funn Band was a big Northeast cult band. We had about a billion skirmishes with the big rock industry.
David Torn
Yeah; I’m a much better blues player than anybody knows, but being in the kind of group I’m in, we were always trying to make popular records
Stephen Stills
As photographers, we must learn to relax our beliefs. Move on objects with your eye straight on, to the left, around on the right. Watch them grow large as they approach, group and regroup as you shift your position. Relationships gradually emerge and sometimes assert themselves with finality. And that’s your picture.
Aaron Siskind
[Interminable monologues] became an issue only late in [Adolf] Hitler’s life. He became repetitive after the war started going badly in Russia. He wasn’t like this earlier on, he could be very funny in our small group, very relaxed, teasing and it was just a relaxed atmosphere.
Gretl Braun
I gave my life to the Group Theatre, because in it I’m building something for myself. What I build, I am.
Elia Kazan
I wasn’t being bullied at school at this point. I had a group of friends, and I was isolated because I wasn’t communicating with my parents. I wasn’t telling them what I was going through.
Randy Harrison
The Constitution of the United States. It’s still the best document of its kind, and written into it are exactly the kind of protections that ensure that no person or group of persons, no matter how diabolical or insane, can hijack the country for much longer than a decade.
John Roderick
All cultures are different. Some commit genocide. Some are uniquely peaceful. Some frequent bathhouses in groups. Some don’t show each other the soles of their shoes or like pictures taken of them. Some have enormous hunting festivals or annual stretches when nobody speaks. Some don’t use electricity.
Casey Affleck
Being 15 and like a punk in the DIY community, basically being with a group of people like no one else, it was the first place to exclude or call out if people were racist, sexist, homophobic or in any way prejudiced.
Babatunde Adebimpe
I think when you’re young and you get together with a group of guys who think like you and you start to make something that moves you as a group of people and you have a common goal, that’s an exciting time.
Mark Lanegan
What is Norah Jones’ style? Is it just the albums that we’ve heard? She has a rock group where she plays guitar in, downtown in New York, so do we really know her style?
Talib Kweli
Naturally, things are more complicated – those groovy, pro-social effects of oxytocin apply to how we interact with in-group members.
Robert M. Sapolsky
In the war, most young men were inducted into the armed forces at the age of 17. A group of students was permitted to attend university before taking part in wartime research projects.
John Pople
School has never really been about individualized learning, but about how to be socialized as a citizen and as a human being, so that we, we have important rules in school, always emphasizing the fact that one is part of a group.
Neil Postman
I had a breakthrough, I think my life just became calmer, I gave up drinking. My priorities changed as I had a young daughter. The group didn’t want me to record for the Think Tank album… so I took it as a sign to leave.
Graham Coxon
I had the assassins of the former president of Egypt, the leader of the Muslim Brotherhood was with me in prison, the leaders of my own former group Hizb ut-Tahrir were with me in prison and so by the time I was released at the age of 28, I wasn’t the man who went in at 24.
Maajid Nawaz
A group called Draft Biden 2016 has started selling bumper stickers that say ‘I’m ridin’ with Biden.’ It’s a lot better than the other one that women around the White House have started using – ‘I’m hidin’ from Biden.’
Jimmy Fallon
I do not believe it right for one group to impose its vision of morality on an entire society.
Nelson Rockefeller
I don’t think that [Hillary Clinton] can turn around her honesty and trustworthiness problems with one speech, but she could present herself tonight as more relatable, give people a glimpse of that warm, funny woman the people who meet her in small groups and one-on-one say that she is.
Tamara Keith
Recovery begins with embracing our pain and taking the risk to share it with others. We do this by joining a group and talking about our pain.
John Bradshaw
I wanted to be a Teacher with a big T: teach the whole planet. It led me into writing and speaking to large groups.
Jack Canfield
The ultimate decision about what is accepted as right and wrong will be made not by individual human wisdom but by the disappearance of the groups that have adhered to the “wrong” beliefs.
Friedrich August von Hayek
Relationship and connectedness are the pre-condition for change. Every meeting, every process, every training program has to get people connected first. Otherwise the content falls on deaf ears. So small groups are an essential building block to any future you want to create.
Peter Block
Research shows that the deciscions of a group as a whole are more thoughtful and creative when there is minority dissent than when it is absent.
Philip Zimbardo
Making films is great. You’ve got 100 people around and you’re all dressing up and making weird art – it’s a fun group activity.
Sean Lennon
The world is in such a mess because of the continuous conflict that arises between human beings – not only between individuals but between tribes and nations and this group and that group and so on. But change can come in only when people start with themselves.
Eckhart Tolle
Solitude offers a lot that being coupled or being in a group does not. It helps us learn what we are capable of.
Alix Kates Shulman
