And that’s why I love physics.

Diane Ackerman
In order to save the 40,000,000 inhabitants of the United Kingdom from a bloody civil war, we colonial statesmen must acquire new lands to settle the surplus population, to provide new markets. […] The Empire, as I have always said, is a bread and butter question.

And then, it turned out there was no way to make the thing for $5 million. That’s when it got weird.
Johnny Depp

Lynn Margulis
If immigration reform passes, it’ll be a big victory for sanity – nobody really believes it’s healthy for a country to have millions and millions of undocumented noncitizens living in the shadows.

Ilana Mercer
I mean, Britain is a country of successful Muslim businesspeople, teachers and educators, journalists. So, we have to say very strongly that the two million plus Muslims in Britain, the vast bulk of them make a huge contribution to our society, and they actually make it the vibrant society it is.

I don’t believe athletes should be role models. . . . We’re a one-shot deal, one in a million, so we should be the least likely role models. . . . I think one of the problems in society today is that we don’t stress education enough, because we glorify athletes, actors and actresses.
Charles Barkley

Dennis Kucinich
In recent years, America’s wealthiest man has begun to tackle energy issues in a major way, investing millions in everything from high-capacity batteries to machines that can scrub carbon dioxide out of the air.

Millions of Americans are struggling to pay their mortgages. They have a right to know whether members of Congress receive sweetheart deals in order to pay for theirs.
Jeb Hensarling
It is the duty of our men to enroll themselves in the national services. We need all our manpower for defence. For the military and… we need a quarter of a million men.
Eamon de Valera
I’ve gotten more than two million votes more than anybody else.
Donald Trump
An act of violence against any innocent person eludes moral justification, disgraces the millions of Americans and people throughout the world who have united in peaceful protest against police brutality, and dishonors our proud inheritance of nonviolent resistance.
Benjamin Crump
We spend billions on marginal and often unnecessary procedures on people who are in the final dying process, yet we leave millions of Americans out of the health insurance system, and America’s kids have the worst dental health in the developed world.
Richard Lamm
I’ve said this over and over, but I’ll say it a million more times – I’m concerned more about the death of a bee than I am about terrorism. Because we’re losing hives and bees by the millions because of such strong pesticides.
Patti Smith
My story is the story of countless millions of children whose families and nations were torn apart for money in the name of Jesus Christ.
Sinead O’Connor
So, the ant way of life is very ancient and very successful. As far as human beings are concerned, we’ve been around for only one million years–too soon be sure.
E. O. Wilson
The U.S. has the largest prison population in the world: two million people. The country with one-twentieth of the world’s population has one-fourth of those in prison.
Randall Robinson
It would cost Americans their jobs when they have to compete with millions of more [immigrants] for scarce jobs.
Lamar S. Smith
The biggest opportunity in 2013 is in Africa. It has seven out of the ten fastest-growing economies in the world. In Nigeria alone there are 100 million people with mobile phones. In total, 300 million Africans – five times the population of Britain – are in the middle class.
David Miliband
There are millions of people living Thoreau’s life of quiet desperation, and they do not have the language to escape from that desperation.

Jean-Marie Le Pen
I hope the millions of people I’ve touched have the optimism and desire to share their goals and hard work and persevere with a positive attitude.
Michael Jordan
Maintaining control indefinitely over millions of Palestinians will inevitably lead to a demographic nightmare and cannot be sustained if Israel is to remain true to its founding principles.
Edgar Bronfman, Sr.
You are spending millions and millions of dollars of other peoples money when you make a movie. You have to at least approach it in a way where you can see how you can make that money back for the people who are investing.
Duncan Jones
I have a deadly disease called Sickle Cell Anemia that I was born with that affects millions of others – primarily in the Black and Latino cultures. I feel I can inspire others with this Sickle Cell disease to be strong and believe in themselves.
Our public schools arbitrarily define science as explaining the world by natural processes alone. In essence, a religion of naturalism is being imposed on millions of students. They need to be taught the real nature of science, including its limitations.
Ken Ham
Wars come from egotism and selfishness. Every macrocosmic or world war has its origin in microcosmic wars going on inside millions and millions of individuals.
Fulton J. Sheen
It’s become a lot bigger than just winning championships. It’s about inspiring hopefully millions at some point in my career.
Jordan Burroughs
A man notices a womans figure when she walks in a room. Women have eight million words for blue; a man says dark blue or light blue.
Hallie Ephron
There are people who want me to do a cologne. They want to call it ‘Patrick.’ I was offered a fortune to make exercise videos. Posters, all kinds of stuff – something like $10 million worth. It’s insanity. I’m not going to do any of it.
Patrick Swayze
We must think and act like a nation of a billion people and not like that of a million people. Dream, dream, dream!
Abdul Kalam
As human beings are also animals, to manage one million animals gives me a headache.
Terry Gou
As we have 250,000 Syrians murdered, slaughtered; millions running around the world, running for their lives. It’s not working. We need to try something else. And that is not reckless.
Chris Christie
For the millions of us who live glued to computer keyboards at work and TV monitors at home, food may be more than entertainment. It may be the only sensual experience left.
Barbara Ehrenreich
I would fight them if they were a million!
Albert Sidney Johnston
I’ve come to learn that the choices I labor over and go back and forth about and ask a million people for their opinions and make lists about those are always the wrong choices.
Michelle Williams
The New Right, in many cases, is doing nothing less than placing a heretical claim on Christian faith that distorts, confuses, and destroys the opportunity for a biblical understanding of Jesus Christ and of his gospel for millions of people.
Mark Hatfield
You can do a million different funks from a million different people and you’ll never get anything exactly alike – that’s what’s so beautiful about it.
Xenobia Bailey
Every humane and patriotic heart must grieve to see a bloody and causeless rebellion, costing thousands of human lives and millions of treasure. But as it was predetermined and inevitable, it was long enough delayed. Now is the appropriate time to solve the greatest problem ever submitted to civilized man.
Thaddeus Stevens
I’m on national TV in front of millions and I hate making mistakes.
Terry Bradshaw
Something as simple as better breastfeeding could save a million children a year.
Anne M. Mulcahy
Even though I now know that it’s likely the Earth will suffer through mega-volcanoes or meteor strikes that could take out millions or billions of people, I feel less anxious about it because I actually understand what the threats are. There’s nothing like researching something exhaustively to make it less terrifying.
Annalee Newitz
Well, he can’t be dumb, I mean, because he’s been president for four years and he’s president again, so you’re going to get caught out if you’re really bad, aren’t you? Unless millions and millions of Americans are dumb.
John Newcombe
In Seoul, Korea one night I spoke to about 1.3 million people and over a million of them indicated salvation decisions. They had a philosophy. Many of the Korean pastors told me that many were not sure of their salvation.
Bill Bright
What this [presidency] campaign is about this bringing millions of people jobs in this country.
Bernie Sanders
20 million people thrown off of health insurance, prescription drug prices raising for seniors, privatization of Medicare: devastation. And we’ve got to fight back against that.
Bernie Sanders
Do you know how many aliens Bill Clinton deported? 12 million. Do you know how many illegal aliens, George W. Bush deported? 10 million. We can enforce the laws and if we secure the border, that solves the problem. And as president I will solve this problem and secure the border.
Ted Cruz
Spacemen – men who work in space, pilots and jetmen and astrogators and such – are men who like a few million miles of elbow room.
Robert A. Heinlein
The facts are the vice president’s company that he was CEO of, that did business with sworn enemies of the United States, paid millions of dollars in fines for providing false financial information, it’s under investigation for bribing foreign officials.
John Edwards
First, the firearms industry has been around and has been respected for generations. They provide a valuable service and a highly desirable product to millions of sportsmen and supporters of those second amendment rights.
Cliff Stearns
I believe climate change is real and that we can save our planet while creating millions of good-paying clean energy jobs.
Hillary Clinton
Needless to say, this would be an unthinkable crime—as it would kill tens of millions of innocent civilians in a single day—but it may be the only course of action available to us, given what Islamists believe
Sam Harris
Each day, millions of police officers do the selfless work of putting their lives on the line to protect civilians, frequently responding to or preventing crises completely with no recognition.
Letitia James
We are dealing with the question of the 11 million people paying their taxes, having a path to legalization and, then, ultimately, to citizenship. Tough issues but we are coming together and I think we can do it.
Dick Durbin
There will always be plenty of things to compute in the detailed affairs of millions of people doing complicated things.
Vannevar Bush
There’s 7 billion, 46 million people on the planet
George Watsky
99.9% of plumbers make less than a quarter million dollars a year, and I’m going to give Joe a break whether he wants it or not.
Barack Obama
I am sure it has been done with less, but you should be prepared to write and throw away a million words of finished material. By finished, I mean completed, done, ready to submit, and written as well as you know how at the time you wrote it. You may be ashamed of it later, but that’s another story.
Jerry Pournelle
Syria is bad enough, it’s a pretty terrible atrocity. But there are much worse ones in the world. So for example, the worst atrocities in the past decade have been in the Congo, the Eastern Congo, where maybe 5 million people have been killed.
Noam Chomsky
Although there have been warnings that it was coming for years, the Alzheimer’s epidemic is here now and millions more families will be touched by this progressive – and ultimately fatal – disease unless its course can be altered.
Jeanne Phillips
But the most reliable indication of the future of Open Source is its past: in just a few years, we have gone from nothing to a robust body of software that solves many different problems and is reaching the million-user count. There’s no reason for us to slow down now.
Bruce Perens
On a really dark night, you can see between 1,000 and 1,500 stars, and there are millions more that haven’t been discovered. It is so easy to think that the world revolves around you, but all you have to do is stare up at the sky to realize it isn’t that way at all. -Brian Fitzgerald
Jodi Picoult
I never sold any of those “lose 10 pounds every week” scams. I’ve not changed my tune in all these years. I’ve seen everything pass by me, and I’ve been offered millions of dollars to put my name on products that were just lies. And I never did it.
Richard Simmons
Don’t worry; skills are cheap, passion is priceless. If you’re passionate about your content and you know it and do it better than anyone else, even with few formal business skills you have the potential to create a million-dollar business.
Gary Vaynerchuk
America, 5 years after this brutal attack, is testament that a Nation conceived in liberty and equality will endure. It is a triumph of millions of Americans but it is also the triumph of an idea larger than any one person, larger than any one nation.
Nick Rahall
I will never forget that there are millions of other people who would be dying to be in my position. I’m not going to be an actress who doesn’t appreciate what she has.
Shay Mitchell
I am hoping for peaceful transition into a new age. Obama has already played a great role in initiating us into that vision. If he were to be harmed in any way, it would spawn the birth of a million Obamas.
Saul Williams
Companies spend millions of dollars on firewalls and secure access devices, and it’s money wasted because none of these measures address the weakest link in the security chain: the people who use, administer and operate computer systems
Kevin Mitnick
The State not seldom tolerates a comparatively great evil to keep out millions of lesser ills and inconveniences which otherwise would be inevitable and without remedy.
Jean de la Bruyere
In 1980, in 1984, millions of middle-class Democrats became Reagan Democrats, and more of them drifted toward the Republicans with Bush in 1988.
Mario Cuomo
In his mind Vaughan saw the whole world dying in a simultaneous automobile disaster, millions of vehicles hurled together in a terminal congress of spurting loins and engine coolant.
J. G. Ballard
Wesco had a market capitalization of $40 million when we bought it [in the early 1970s]. It’s $2 billion now. It’s been a long slog to a perfectly respectable outcome – not as good as Berkshire Hathaway or Microsoft, but there’s always someone in life who’s done better.
Charlie Munger
It’s learning how to negotiate to keep both sides happy – whether it’s for a multi-million dollar contract or just which show to watch on TV, that determines the quality and enjoyment of our lives.
Leigh Steinberg
India did not innovate with the ATMs. But when we brought ATMs into India and made the machines talk in 15 regional languages to the people in rural India, we got millions of transactions on the ATM.
Chanda Kochhar
If we were united and strong, we’d elect our own emir (leader) and give allegiance to him… Take my word, if 6-8 million Muslims unite in America, the country will come to us.
Siraj Wahhaj
The Crime Victims Fund is distributed to service providers who assist millions of crime victims annually throughout our communities in a host of ways. It is paid for by fines levied on criminals, not taxpayers.
Jim Costa
I think lines are meant to be crossed anyways. The entire time I was singing on the cross, there’s numbers flipping over my head. You know, starting at one and going up to 12 million.
Madonna Ciccone
The newspaper is a greater treasure to the people than uncounted millions of gold.
Henry Ward Beecher
Education from six-year-old to 14 is compulsory in Nigeria, but the simple fact is that a lack of resources, coupled with peoples’ inability to afford books and uniforms mean the reality for millions of Nigerian children is a life without education.
Jay-Jay Okocha
If you’ve been in a film that’s seen by millions and millions and millions of people, you’re more likely to be recognized for that than for your theater performances, which were seen by considerably less people. Why would I get upset by that?
Ian Mckellen
We will hear more details on [Donald] Trump`s plans on addressing illegal immigration in the speech tonight, including what Trump plans to do about those 11 million illegal immigrants already in the U.S.
Kellyanne Conway
And it is practically the same in the case of the four or five million poor peasants in France, and also for Switzerland, Belgium, Holland, and two of the Scandinavian countries. Everywhere small and medium sized industry prevails.
Herman Gorter
I have a million small memories that will sustain me through life.
James Packer
If you can’t sell to 1 in 1000, why market to a million?
Seth Godin
We are all lucky to be here, we are lucky to be on stage and have millions of people watch us.
Gary Barlow
After being on ‘Oprah’ for a couple of months, I got my first royalty check for $1,478,392.17. I will never forget it. At the height of my career, I made $3.3 million. Unbelievable. From welfare in the projects to $3.3 million.
Iyanla Vanzant
At any given time, there are a lot of million-dollar luxury charter boats cruising around the Mentawai Islands finding the most incredible waves. And yet the people on shore are suffering. The whole scene is wrong. As a surf community, we have to do something.
Rob Machado
How many beautiful trees gave their lives that today’s scandal should, without delay, reach a million readers.
Edwin Way Teale
In the basement of 33 Himmel Street, Max Vandenburg could feel the fists of an entire nation. One by one they climbed into the ring to beat him down. They made him bleed. They let him suffer. Millions of them – until one last time, when he gathered himself to his feet.
Markus Zusak
My doctor asked me how many golf balls I had hit in my career. I’m lying there in bed calculating somewhere between four and five million golf balls I had hit to do that on my body.
Greg Norman
Cricketers have to perform in front of millions, and there are no retakes. If then you become a hero, you deserve all the accolades coming your way.
Sushant Singh Rajput
The human diet, for millions of years, did not contain any added salt – only the sodium present in natural foods, adding up to only about 1000 mg sodium per day.
Joel Fuhrman
For the most part, studio movies have huge budgets. They don’t do anything under 30 to 40 million. When you have that much money at stake, you have so many people breathing down your neck.
Penelope Spheeris
The population of America is roughly 300 million and there are 300 million guns in this country, which is terrifying.
Liam Neeson
One murder makes a villain; millions, a hero.
Charlie Chaplin
People think about this idea that there’s 122 million kids that are alive that would not be if that fatality rate had stayed at the 1990 level, that’s 122 million families.
Bill Gates
According to geologists, about 100 million years from now, Asia and the Americas will smash together to form one giant supercontinent. The good news: Maybe all those jobs that went over there will finally come back.
Jay Leno
Keep a note pad and pencil on your bedside table. Million-dollar ideas sometimes strike at 3 A.M.
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
The explosive growth in places like Shanghai has helped lift hundreds of millions of people out of poverty and into a thriving new middle class. What China has done is nothing short of an economic transformation, and the citizens of this country have every right to be proud.
Gary Locke
As we celebrate Recovery Month, it is time for Congress to knock down the barriers to treatment and recovery for 26 million Americans suffering the ravages of alcohol and drug addiction.
Jim Ramstad
The biggest thing the money Infosys brought me is the freedom to do what I want. And what I want is to give millions more the opportunities I had.
Nandan Nilekani
It’s ridiculous to live 100 years and only be able to remember 30 million bytes. You know, less than a compact disc. The human condition is really becoming more obsolete every minute.
Marvin Minsky
Exterminate the 50 million Vietnamese and purify the masses of the [Cambodian] people.
Pol Pot
The most important thing in your life is your health and your body. You can have all the education and you can have millions of dollars in the bank, but if you’ve got headaches every day, if you’re fat and you are out of shape – what good is your money? Your health account and your bank account, build them both up!
Jack LaLanne
I don’t think for example that the Indians look at [what is right and what is wrong] that way [the Palestinians do]. There are a billion, 200 million people in that part of the world. Why? They suffer from terror. People that do not suffer from it don’t understand what I’m talking about, you know?
Shimon Peres
On our Southern border, Joe Biden has allowed hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of illegal aliens into our country.
Marjorie Taylor Greene
This year, U.S. airlineswill carry a record 143 million passengers, who will be in the air for 382 million hours, during which they will be fed an estimated total of four peanuts.
Dave Barry
It has taken us two million years to elevate politics from the level of a monkey squabble, to a level comprehensible to a six year old child.
Peter J. Carroll
I am not going to share my private life with millions of people. I don’t find a need to do that and nobody else close to me does either.
Francesca Annis
I have written millions of words about contemporary England – in journalism. Why don’t I take it as the background for a novel? I may do one day. But the simple answer is that it does not excite the novelistic part of my brain; it does not fire it up.
Sebastian Faulks
People don’t want to be millionaires – they want to experience what they believe only millions can buy.
Tim Ferriss
Lata Mangeshkar is a living legend. She has enthralled millions of hearts all over the world with her music.
Nita Ambani
In Utah alone, ten million acres are open for business. Their policy is not about the public or the public’s best interest. It is about the oil and gas corporations’ best interests.
Terry Tempest Williams
He who does not expect a million readers should not write a line.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
I’m not a statistician, but it doesn’t take a genious to work out that 100 million children being denied an education is ridiculous. There is nothing lost in translation here, it’s obvious that’s wrong.
Scarlett Johansson
That was never a penalty in a million planets.
Alan McInally
Why is a woman’s sexuality always under so much scrutiny? Why can’t she do exactly what she please without being called a million things?
Christina Aguilera
Ants are the dominant insects of the world, and they’ve had a great impact on habitats almost all over the land surface of the world for more than 50-million years.
E. O. Wilson
The sixteen hundred dairies in California’s Central Valley alone produce more waste than a city of twenty-one million people-that’s more than the populations of London, New York, and Chicago combined.
Gene Baur
With enough insider information and a million dollars, you can go broke in a year.
Warren Buffett
By this means (fractional reserve banking) government may secretly and unobserved, confiscate the wealth of the people, and not one man in a million will detect the theft.
John Maynard Keynes
I always looked up there, because I remember a time when the only things on the walls in Fenway were the Jimmy Fund sign and the retired numbers. Never in a million years did you think you’d ever be up there with those guys.
Carlton Fisk
The way to make a million dollars is to start a religion.
George Orwell
I would sell 2 million records, a million went to teenagers and a million went to the adults. So, when The Beatles became so popular, I lost a million to the teenagers, but I was still selling a million to the adults.
Bobby Vinton
It has taken these many hundreds of millions of years to fine-tune the Earth to a point where it is suitable for the likes of us.
Sylvia Earle
Is our desire for partnership just an evolutionary remainder, a Togetherness Delusion, where millions of women only think they need a relationship to be truly happy? Maybe. But you know what? That’s fine with me.
Tracy McMillan
You don’t understand, you fool’ says Yegor, looking dreamily up at the sky. ‘You’ve never understood what kind of person I am, nor will you in a million years… You just think I’m a mad person who has thrown his life away… Once the free spirit has taken hold of a man, there’s no way of getting it out of him.
Anton Chekhov
You only had widespread literacy and books that people could afford in the middle of the 19th century. Did more people read poetry at the turn of the 20th century when there were about fifty million people?
Robert Hass
For nearly eight decades, I’ve had the great fortune of playing thousands of roles before millions of people.
Dick Van Patten
Marius and Cosette were in the dark in regard to each other. They did not speak, they did not bow, they were not acquainted; they saw each other; and, like the stars in the sky separated by millions of leagues, they lived by gazing upon each other.
Victor Hugo
I think it took us nine years to get one million subscribers to AOL, and then in the next nine years we went from one million to 35 million.
Steve Case
I think that’s somewhat of what the left is feeling now – that maybe I’m alone, and they’re not. There are millions of us on the right that feel the same way.
Glenn Beck
In the account book of the Great War the page recording the Russian losses has been ripped out. The figures are unknown. Five millions, or eight? We ourselves know not.
Paul von Hindenburg
Romney raised $10 million. That’s a dollar for every position he’s had on healthcare.
Jay Leno
Education is spreading hope. Millions are now learning to live with HIV/AIDS – instead of waiting to die from it.
Laura Bush
Fox gets two million viewers a night, and MSNBC gets one. It’s four million people, five million people, and 130 million people are going to vote. There are an awful lot of voters, and an awful lot of politically engaged, intelligent people who are not hanging on whatever happens on Bill O’Reilly or Rachel Maddow.
William Kristol
Land on Mars, a round-trip ticket – half a million dollars. It can be done.
Elon Musk
[People asked me] “Where is your million-dollar shirt?” I’m like, “It’s underneath these $25 Hanes T-shirts I’ve got on.”
J. R. Smith
Federal assistance helps millions of Americans escape poverty every year by providing the stability needed to take advantage of new opportunities. In fact, it is our safety net that allows full participation in the economy. More Americans purchasing goods means more Americans making them, which means more American jobs.
John Yarmuth
We share this planet, our home, with millions of species. Justice and sustainability both demand that we do not use more resources than we need.
Vandana Shiva
Because the math is, if you – 5 percent of a million is a lot more than 5 percent of a thousand. So yeah, someone who makes more money, numerically, it’s gonna be higher. But the greatest gains, percentage-wise, for people, are gonna be at the lower end of our plan.
Ted Cruz
I’m part of a team that raises millions of dollars and raises awareness of HIV and AIDS all over the world.
Linda Evangelista
Build something 100 people love, not something 1 million people kind of like.
Brian Chesky
I disagree with the concept that somehow or another we’re going to pack up 10, to 12, to 15 million people and ship them back to the country of origin. That’s not going to happen.
Rick Perry
I believe that this could very well be looked back on as the sin of our generation…I believe that our children and their children, 40 or 50 years from now, are going to ask me, what did you do while 40 million children became orphans in Africa?
Richard Stearns
What people don’t realize is the human body and the brain are so well designed to do – by millions of years of evolution – what we do.
Paul Allen
Are there many people without illness or disability who sit at home in the evening with clenched fists, continually changing the channel of a television set and wishing they had the courage to roll over the parapet of a high bridge? I bet there are millions of us.
Alasdair Gray
It seems that England’s royal family is running out of money. They are down to just $1.6 million. Well sure, that’s what happens when nobody in your family has had a job for the last thousand years.
Jay Leno
Look out into the universe and contemplate the glory of God. Observe the stars, millions of them, twinkling in the night sky, all with a message of unity, part of the very nature of God.
Sai Baba
Millions of people have to restore liberty and have to understand the danger and personal risk they face in a police state.
Naomi Wolf
American forces in Iraq found $650 million in American cash sealed in a hidden cottage. See, this is why President Bush wants to invade Iraq, the whole place is oil and cash. It’s like Republican Disneyland.
Jay Leno
The federal government has made explicit and implicit promises to millions of people, but has put no money aside in order to keep those promises. Some of you may wonder where Bernie Madoff got the idea for his Ponzi scheme. Clearly he was studying federal entitlement policy.
John C. Goodman
Why did so many grown-ups want to be young, she wondered, when it took so long to grow old? It was like going on a million-mile road trip then wanting to turn around without getting out of the car.
Pseudonymous Bosch
If you consider that there are a million people forced out of their homes by Katrina, multiply that by 150, and then stick those people in countries who, as inconceivable as it seems, are less prepared than we were to deal with the whole thing.
Bill McKibben
There were a million What Ifs that could have stopped the whole thing. A million things I wished I’d done differently. But in the end, I was left with what actually happened. With my mistakes and his.
Rachel Vincent
For millions of years, mankind lived just like the animals. Then something happened which unleashed the power of our imagination. We learned to talk and we learned to listen.
Stephen Hawking
For seven and a half million years, Deep Thought computed and calculated, and in the end announced that the answer was in fact Forty-two – and so another, even bigger, computer had to be built to find out what the actual question was.
Douglas Adams
Today, the growing economic and social pressures in our country are putting millions of women, children and families at increased risk of abuse and neglect, especially when families are denied basic support services and economic opportunity.
Robert Casey
In villages across the developing world, governments have provided reasonable enough latrines that have again and again been turned into storage spaces or simply abandoned. In India alone, millions of government-funded latrines have become goat-sheds. Some had been built near kitchens, a taboo in Indian households.
Rose George
My mother always taught me that two wrongs don’t make a right. We shouldn’t bail out Wall Street. We shouldn’t bail out Detroit. It will cost the economy more than the cost of the bailout which is more than the politicians think. We’ll run into the hundred of millions to prop these companies up.
Peter Schiff
I did not get a million-dollar or multimillion-dollar loan from my dad.
Megyn Kelly
There are a million people who can come up with little bits. The hard work is making those bits into something.
Jeff Lynne
Around 20 million premature and low-birth weight babies are born every year and are at high risk of death or disability because of hypothermia.
Jane Chen
You know, it was once said of the first George Bush that he was born on third base and thought he’d hit a triple. Well, with the 22 million new jobs and the budget surplus Bill Clinton left behind, George W. Bush came into office on third base, and then he stole second.
Ted Strickland
With 1.7 million private sector jobs lost and half a million jobs shipped overseas over the past three years, we must take action to spur job creation and restore economic prosperity.
Nick Lampson
Periodically, the workers do revolt against bourgeois society, not by a hundred, five hundred, or a thousand, but by the millions.
Ernest Mandel
It’s about creating a product or service so good that people will pay for it. Now 30 years on The Body Shop is a multi local business with over 2.045 stores serving over 77 million customers in 51 different markets in 25 different languages and across 12 time zones. And I haven’t a clue how we got here!
Anita Roddick
I heard Russell Simmons say that, ‘people have million dollar dreams with a minimum wage work ethic.’ Basically, everybody wanna be rich but don’t nobody wanna work for it.
Yo Gotti
Wherever I go people recognize me, call my name, cheer for me. But there are names no one cares to remember, that no one cheers for: the 805 million people suffering from hunger in the world today.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic
The most dangerous area where our laws are not being faithfully executed are the laws designed to protect Americans against the millions of aliens who enter our country illegally every year.
Phyllis Schlafly
Fifteen millions of soldiers with popguns and horses All bent upon killing, because their “of courses” Are not quite the same.
Amy Lowell
America offers the most amount of people the best opportunity to pursue happiness on the planet. That’s why millions of illegal immigrants have poured into the country – most of them poor. They believe they have a shot to improve themselves economically.
Bill O’Reilly
Women run the small country called Home, millions of us do it in our spare time, and no one who doesn’t run that small country really knows what it feels like in the dead of night when task lists jitter like tickertape through your seething brain.
Allison Pearson
Millions saw the apple fall, but Newton was the one who asked why.
Bernard Baruch
Kids win this’n’that every day. Thousands of them. One out of a hundred fights professionally. One out of a thousand’s worth watchin’, one out of a million’s worth coffee and doughnuts.
Abraham Polonsky
For a million years the sound of making handaxes provided the percussion of everyday life. Anyone choosing a hundred objects to tell a history of the world would have to include a handaxe.
Neil MacGregor
You can’t fool yourself anymore that your art is your art. When you’re not getting paid for that song that’s being traded back and forth among millions of people on the Internet, you have to think like a businessperson.
Ann Powers
With their own record of killing 12 million American Indians and supporting slavery for four decades after the British abolished it, Americans wish to project their historical guilt on to someone else.
Andrew Roberts
Long before the thousand millions are here, the mighty centrifugal tendency, inherent in this stock and strengthened in the United States, will assert itself.
Josiah Strong
Only one person in a million becomes enlightened without a teacher’s help.
In the power and splendor of the universe, inspiration waits for the millions to come. Man has only to strive for it. Poems greater than the Iliad, plays greater than Macbeth, stories more engaging than Don Quixote await their seeker and finder.
John Masefield
I’d prefer 1,000 followers, friends, and fans that actually meant something, rather than 10 million that weren’t engaged.
Jared Leto
And there is the matter of abortion. We must with calmness and resolve help the vast majority of our fellow Americans understand that the more than 112 million abortions performed in America in 1980 amount to a great moral evil, an assault on the sacredness of human life.
Ronald Reagan
The old saying holds. Owe your banker пїЅ1000 and you are at his mercy; owe him пїЅ1 million and the position is reversed.
John Maynard Keynes
In the 1980s, I was working to reform the schools in Arkansas. Donald Trump was borrowing $14 million from his father to start his businesses. In the 1990s, I went to Beijing and I said women’s rights are human rights. He insulted a former Miss Universe, Alicia Machado, called her an eating machine.
Hillary Clinton
If it were not for government regulation of big corporations, executives at companies like Enron, WorldCom, Tyco, they could have cheated investors out of millions.
P. J. O’Rourke
Keep me preoccupied Keep me busy, busy, busy So I won’t have to think I don’t want to think Because it only brings me pain I just keep running away from My problems Keep me busy Give me a million things to do So I can keep running away from myself.
Henry Rollins
The guy said NBA players are one in a million, … I said, ‘Man, look, I’m going to be that one in a million.
Kobe Bryant
I can only write one novel at a time. The author of the Perry Mason novels, Erle Stanley Gardner, often worked on four novels simultaneously, and produced a million words a year. I’m envious.
James Thayer
These days the American dream of home ownership has turned into a nightmare for millions of families. They wake every day to the reality of a horrible decline in the value of the home that has meant so much to them.
Mortimer Zuckerman
The person who gives up his individual self and becomes an automaton, identical with millions of other automatons around him, need not feel alone and anxious any more. But the price he pays, however, is high; it is the loss of his self.
Erich Fromm
When I was in prison, a Colombian drug lord, offered me $5 million in cash to manipulate a computer system so that he would be released. I turned him down.
Kevin Mitnick
Every one of these hundreds of millions of human beings is in some form seeking happiness…. Not one is altogether noble nor altogether trustworthy nor altogether consistent; and not one is altogether vile…. Not a single one but has at some time wept.
H. G. Wells
It’s all so verbal in the Protestant church. You’ve heard these words a million times before. Maybe people are leaving the church because they find the church has nothing that they’re looking for.
Frederick Buechner
When I moved to Seattle, I was hanging out with kids who had done drugs, had sex a million times. I look at them now and realize their childhood was taken away.
Jeff Ament
It will take a nation of millions to hold me back.
Tim Howard
When communism failed, it wasn’t a good idea that had gone wrong, it was a bad idea that had been sustained with incredible determination in the face of all the commonsense arguments, and at the cost of 20 million lives at least, in Russia, to build the socialist Utopia.
Martin Amis
In addition to our existing programs, I will recommend a new program for schools and students with a first-year authorization of $1,500 million.
Lyndon B. Johnson
I am glad that Congress has recently authorized $800,000 to State welfare agencies to expand their day-care services during the remainder of this fiscal year. But we need much more. We need the $8 million in the 1965 budget for the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare allocated to this purpose.
John F. Kennedy
It pains me even now, even a million years later, to write about such human misbehaviour. A million years later, I feel like apologizing for the human race. That’s all I can say.
Kurt Vonnegut
I always thought I would be a teacher. And I think I actually lived up to my initial dreams, because what I do now is teach millions and millions of people many different kinds of things.
Martha Stewart
I believe in an America where millions of Americans believe in an America that’s the America millions of Americans believe in. That’s the America I love.
Mitt Romney
For 3 Million you could give everyone in Scotland a shovel, and we could dig a hole so deep we could hand her over to Satan in person.
Frankie Boyle
I don’t know where Hank Aaron will break (Babe) Ruth’s record but I can tell you one thing – ten years from the day he hits it three million people will say they were there.
Eddie Mathews
There are a million ways to make money in the markets. The irony is that they are all very difficult to find.
Jack D. Schwager
You can be Hitler and go to confession and say forgive me, Father, I killed six million Jews, and the priest would just be like no problem. Say 10 Heil Marys. And Hitler goes to heaven.
Sarah Silverman
All over China, parents tell their children to stop complaining and to finish their quadratic equations and trigonometric functions because there are sixty-five million American kids going to bed with no math at all.
Michael Cunningham
Two hundred million Americans, and there ain’t two good catchers among ’em.
Casey Stengel
War is murder. And the military preparations now being made for a potential major confrontation are aimed at collective murder. In a nuclear age the victims would be numbered by the millions. This naked truth must be faced.
Alva Myrdal
What could be addictive about the limelight is the recognition that you gain. Can you imagine the feeling you experience when the whole country looks up to you? When you become a source of inspiration for millions?
Mahima Chaudhry
There are millions of people in the world, and the spirits will see that most of them you never have to meet. But there are one or two you are tied to, and the spirits will cross you back and forth, threading so many knots until they catch and you finally get it right.
Jodi Picoult
a society in which there is widespread economic insecurity can turn freedom into a barren and vapid right for millions of people.
Eleanor Roosevelt
All of us are linear thinkers. We evolved in a world that was local and linear. You know, back 100,000, 200,000, millions of years ago, when we were evolving as a human species, nothing changed. You know, the life of your great-grandparents, you, your kids – it was the same. And so we are local and linear thinkers.
Peter Diamandis
You look at something like health care, the Affordable Care Act. And for all the controversy, we now have 20 million people who have health insurance who didn’t have it. It’s actually proven to be more effective, cheaper than even advocates like me expected.
Barack Obama
The Tea Party elites gained extraordinary influence by being able to funnel millions of undisclosed dollars into campaigns with ads that distort the truth and attack government.
Chuck Schumer
Al Gore in 2000. He got a half a million more votes than George Bush and lost. How can that be? It’s ridiculous. It’s an elitist system. It’s so they pick your President. You don’t – the people – and it needs to be abolished.
Jesse Ventura
Education is the key to the future: You’ve heard it a million times, and it’s not wrong. Educated people have higher wages and lower unemployment rates, and better-educated countries grow faster and innovate more than other countries. But going to college is not enough. You also have to study the right subjects.
Alex Tabarrok
I believe that the brain has evolved over millions of years to be responsive to different kinds of content in the world. Language content, musical content, spatial content, numerical content, etc.
Howard Gardner
You get a series of super-typhoons into Shanghai and millions of people die. Does the population there lose faith in Chinese government? Does China start to fissure? I’d prefer to deal with a rising, dominant China any day.
David Titley
It’s difficult for democracy to function properly under the most favorable circumstances, but it has no chance at all when millions of voters are divorced from objective reality and incapable of understanding what is going on in Washington.
David Harsanyi
For chat-room tyros who expect to make their first million day-trading by age 27, paging through the Sunday newspaper with a pair of scissors just to save a couple of cents on Cheetos seems so, well, old economy.
Alex Berenson
How do you create a film that can reach millions of people and engage them in the subject? You have to take risks and try something new.
Sam Branson
There are 100,000 artists on Pandora & 70% are indies; artists making $100K – $2 million.
Tim Westergren
President Clinton signed a $10 million deal to write a book by 2003. Isn’t that amazing? Yes, and get this, not only that, President Bush signed a $10 million deal to read a book by 2003.
Conan O’Brien
I’ll never sell 14 million like Hammer, I just wanna do a good Ice-T show.
Ice T
I`ve had over $20 million spent attacking me. That`s not grassroots money. That`s money from the establishment. We have always had to take on the establishment. We`ll do it again, because the Republican Party needs to turn the page and move forward. And we will.
Marco Rubio
Nobody in Britain has voted for 4 million people to come here in the last 15 years, and for probably another 3 million to come between now and 2020.
Nigel Farage
The character of a whole society is the cumulative result of countless small actions, day in and day out, of millions of persons.
Duane Elgin
Remember in 1973 the same science chatter said that the coming Ice Age is going to occur, we’re going to lose millions of people. And the politicians knew how to solve it, they just didn’t have the courage to solve it; they were going to put coal dust on the Arctic.
Don Young
Civil disobedience is not our problem. Our problem is civil obedience. Our problem is that people all over the world have obeyed the dictates of leaders . . . . and millions have been killed because of this obedience . . . .
Howard Zinn
Of the 2,000,000 Armenians in Turkey in 1914, one million have been slaughtered, and the survivors only 130,000 remain in Turkey and the rest are refugees and exiles. Armenian property losses are valued at over 5,000,000,000 dollars are more than three fourths of the estimated wealth of the Armenian race.
Herbert Adams Gibbons
I have you here. Why shouldn’t I be pleased? (Stryker) I can think of a million reasons, starting with the fact that I want to kill you more than I want to breathe. As for the others, would you prefer them in order of importance or alphabetically? (Zephyra)
Sherrilyn Kenyon
What is happening today is that there are millions of children who are not lifted up to the first rung of the ladder. Then they are condemned when they don’t know how to climb from there.
Marianne Williamson
Eventually, in ’84, we made a film for a little over a million dollars – with American actors that was shot in English – that was shown in Finland A little action film called Born American.
Renny Harlin
When you’re the victim of the behavior, it’s black and white; when you’re the perpetrator, there are a million shades of gray.
Laura Schlessinger
The Tonys are the once-a-year shot for all of these shows and artists who work so diligently every single performance but only for a thousand or so people at a time. This gives them the opportunity to perform to millions of people.
Neil Patrick Harris
I don’t think God will continue to bless America if we continue to kill 1.2 million children every year.
Rick Santorum
What Churchill described as the twin marauders of war and tyranny have been almost entirely banished from our continent. Today, hundreds of millions dwell in freedom, from the Baltic to the Adriatic, from the Western Approaches to the Aegean.
David Cameron
Human beings are millions of things in one day.
Nick Hornby
Representing a company with the largest and one of the most diverse groups of associates in the U.S., and an even more diverse customer base of tens of millions of customers, we believe we should stay engaged to try to influence decisions in a positive way and help bring people together.
Doug McMillon
I am not going to be dictated to by fans, certainly. I am dictated enough to by my record company to last me a million years.
Marvin Gaye
I think the success of a film is very important to an actor. It depends on how many people go to watch your movies; the more the merrier. Nobody wants to do a film for five people. You work so hard that millions of people watch the movie; this is directly related to box office success.
Rani Mukerji
Coming after all the bullshit related to A Million Little Pieces, nobody was expecting anything from me. No publisher, no agent, no one. Just me and the book. It was great.
James Frey
If you’re fortunate to get a first album that sells 10 million you have nowhere to go but down. I’m just going to be honest and your measuring stick is so high that haters are licking their chops because you can’t do nothing but fail.
I think whether you’re a movie critic and have seen a million movies, or you’re just a normal popcorn movie watcher, you can tell the difference when someone is just laying it on too thick.
Josh Peck
It was a great thing to be a human being. It was something tremendous. Suddenly I’m conscious of a million sensations buzzing in me like bees in a hive. Gentlemen, it was a great thing.
Karel Capek
Children, even if we lose a million dollars, we can recover it. If we lose one second, we cannot get it back. Every moment that we are not remembering God is lost to us.
Mata Amritanandamayi
These Americans are among the working poor with full-time jobs earning $5.15 an hour. Millions fall into this boat, even more when you consider that the poverty line has not been adequately adjusted to reflect the true level of poverty in this country.
Marcy Kaptur
The solution to our problems is not more paternalism, laws, decrees, and controls, but the restoration of liberty and free enterprise, the restoration of incentives, to let loose the tremendous constructive energies of 300 million Americans.
Henry Hazlitt
The low level which commercial morality has reached in America is deplorable. We have humble God fearing Christian men among us who will stoop to do things for a million dollars that they ought not to be willing to do for less than 2 millions.
Mark Twain
When I joined the Communist movement in 1935 it was based upon the belief that mankind’s future was to be found there. Certainly, millions who joined it the world over, like myself, didn’t join it for profit.
Albert Maltz
The time has come to end the suffering and the plight of millions of Palestine refugees in the homeland and the Diaspora, to end their displacement and to realize their rights, some of them forced to take refuge more than once in different places of the world.
Mahmoud Abbas
If I am a fool then it is no misfortune, for then only one more fool will wander this Earth. Amongst the millions of mentally deranged it would barely be noticed. But what if I am not a fool, and that science itself has erred? Then the tragedy is incalculable!
Viktor Schauberger
As governor of California in 1970, Reagan endeared himself to millions of conservatives nationwide when he publicly rebuked the anti-war movement that was exploding on college campuses.
Jackson Katz
If you think it makes a difference if I have ten thousand sports cars, ten million girlfriends and lead a very flashy life … I don’t think you should work with any teacher because you don’t know what it is all about yet.
Frederick Lenz
I’m also a fan with sticking with the most standard software that millions of other users also use, because you get the benefit of all those other users’ problems and solutions.
Steve Wozniak
‘American Dream’ is a small little movie made for under a million dollars. Totally independent feature.
Janusz Kaminski
If the atoms in [a] decimetre cube of lead were all put into a chain side by side the same distance apart as they are in the normal lead, the strings of atoms so formed would reach over six million million miles.
Francis William Aston
Twenty miles out of town. A million miles from the life you left behind.
Brigid Lowry
What we need to do is increase the totality of money that is given to the poorest areas and then we can do more on prevention but we have crucial needs at the moment just to get people out of poverty and to get the eight hundred million people that go to bed at night hungry, give them some food and some hope.
James Wolfensohn
Today you have millions of Americans that feel left out and out of place in their own country, struggling to live paycheck to paycheck, called bigots because they hold on to traditional values.
Marco Rubio
I don’t have great running technique, but I like to run. I’ve heard from countless people that the last six miles of the marathon is all mental. But what better city to have this in than New York City where there are millions of people there supporting you?
Apolo Ohno
When we seed millions of acres of land with these plants, what happens to foraging birds, to insects, to microbes, to the other animals, when they come in contact and digest plants that are producing materials ranging from plastics to vaccines to pharmaceutical products?
Jeremy Rifkin
I want to dedicate the rest of my life to spreading the love of Christ. Because God has done so much for me and has given me this platform to speak into millions of lives, I feel it is my duty…
Joyce Meyer
My name is Jordan Belfort. I was raised in a tiny apartment in Queens. At the tender age of 22 I headed to Wall Street. Within months I started my own firm out of an abandoned auto body shop. The year I turned 26, I made 49 million dollars which really pissed me off because it was three shy of a million a week.
Jordan Belfort
Night fell clean and cold in Dublin, and wind moaned beyond my room as if a million pipes played the air.
Patricia Cornwell
I’d rather make one righteous dollar on my level
Than make a million dollars spittin’ rhymes for the devil.
We need to quit subsidizing the costs for illegal immigrants’ residency in America immediately. How long will we allow them to siphon millions upon millions from honest taxpaying Americans by supporting their health care, welfare, education and criminal expenses?
Newt Gingrich
We have to deal with the 11 million individuals who are here illegally. The bill that Senator [Marco] Rubio put forward, I think is a great place to start.
Barack Obama
Im a perfectionist and, when it comes to people I want to work with, I have changed my mind, like, millions of times.
Cassie Ventura
You can fool some of the people part of the time in a rock and roll song, fifty million Elvis Presley fans can’t be all wrong.
John Prine
I think I’ve done a pretty fantastic job, but of course I want to sell millions of records.
Rufus Wainwright
Maybe there is a sort of a sweet middle ground there, where you can do something with something with like 20 to 40 million and do something which is much more character driven, but still create a sort of visual spectacle around it. That is what I’d like to do.
Duncan Jones
I’d been part, albeit unwillingly, of making millions of women feel that they are to blame if they cannot manage to rise up the ladder as fast as men and also have a family and an active home life (and be thin and beautiful to boot).
Anne-Marie Slaughter
I’m in politics to make the lives of millions of Indians better.
Nandan Nilekani
Money doesn’t always bring happiness. People with ten million dollars are no happier than people with nine million dollars.
Hobart Brown
If you take a guy like a Barack Obama, who’s raised millions of dollars from the most donors in the history of this nation, it suggests that there’s a deep and profound hunger for a new politics to come forth. And a guy like him has been able to mobilize that and to reach certain parts of the hip-hop generation.
Michael Eric Dyson
The women of today are the thoughts of their mothers and grandmothers, embodied and made alive. They are active, capable, determined and bound to win. They have one-thousand generations back of them… Millions of women dead and gone are speaking through us today
Matilda Joslyn Gage
The reality is that our economy now consists of driving 250 million vehicles around the suburbs and malls and eating fried chicken. We don’t manufacture much. We just burn up ever scarcer petroleum in the ever-expanding suburbs built with mortgage money lent to people who haven’t a clue.
Joe Bageant
Oh, I would love to be a motivational speaker. I have pulled myself out of a million potholes, and I can see the potholes ahead of me. That doesn’t mean that I could always do that so perfectly for my own life. I totally fall in potholes.
Drew Barrymore
My YouTube videos have literally millions of views… Yet I’m still airbrushed out of the BBC Stalinist revision of history; the chart shows have been instructed not to play my music!
Jonathan King
What’s at the end of a million dollars? Zero, zero, zero… nothing. A circle with a hole in it.
Humphrey Bogart
Politico reports, multiple advisers to the Right To Rise super Pac concede privately that the $40 million spent on positive ads aimed at telling Bush`s story yielded no tangible dividends.
Chris Hayes
Slow down. Enjoy life. It’s tough to slow down if your mind is going a million miles a second. It’s tough to slow down if you think what these people do here matters.
Frederick Lenz
I always have beauty around me, for I have but to go to my piano, and trace one of the million designs that have been made by my masters.
Rebecca West
Actors have a different kind of existence because they blow up over night into superstars in their early 20s. Let’s say you were a superstar in your early 20s and somebody gave you millions of dollars, I mean come on. Let’s be honest here, we don’t know anything in our 20s.
Mehcad Brooks
I’ve never sung a single song in my whole life on purpose to shock anyone. My ‘hot numbers’ are all, if you will notice, written about something that is real in the lives of millions of people.
Sophie Tucker
My theory of change is that there are already millions of people working day in and day out on the ground to deliver on promises on global change. We need to strengthen those institutions and help those people in the field.
Chris Hughes
I don’t drive an Escalade; I’ve never lived on a mansion; I live in a townhouse. Even with my internet business, when I was making just shy of a million and a half a year, I lived in the same house.
Romany Malco
Millions of people gave their lives fighting fascism and imperialism, but Pearl Harbor was the event that forever changed the course of human history.
Sam Graves
Over the last five years, the Administration and the majority in Congress have appropriated less than $900 million for port security grants – despite the Coast Guard’s determination that $5.4 billion is needed over 10 years.
Solomon Ortiz
