James Lipton

The tragedy of September 11th was so sudden, so enormous, and so horrendous, both in terms of lives lost and global consequences, that this country and the world went into immediate and prolonged shock.
Allen Klein
On the morning of September 11th, I was literally about 18 blocks from the World Trade Center. I witnessed in person what a lot of people witnessed in person, but what the world really saw on the television screen, I saw it with my own eyes that morning.
Steve Tisch
Nobody understood The Reoccurring Dream, but after September 11, when we were coerced to do a national duty and go out and shop, surely people could begin to see what I was getting at.
Joni Mitchell
I believe that cinema died on the 31 September 1983 when the zapper, or the remote control, was introduced into the living rooms of the world.
Peter Greenaway
Imagine, a September 11 with weapons of mass destruction. It’s not 3,000. It’s tens of thousands of innocent men, women and children.
Donald Rumsfeld
Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.
George Eliot
15 of the 19 [September 11th] hijackers were from Saudi Arabia.
Michael Moore
On September 5, 1774, forty-five of the weightiest colonial men formed the First Continental Congress at Philadelphia.
Gore Vidal
I’m really keen to go back and do some theatre, but I can’t afford to at the moment because we’re getting married in September. And then I’m hoping to direct a film at the end of this year, and that means a year of your life without pay.
Richard Roxburgh
Judy, we think that since the 11th of September, 2001, we’ve faced a similar heightened threat level. And we’ve been enhancing both the exchange of intelligence and security information and the assessment of that information, because that’s the crucial element.
David Blunkett
The great lesson to be learned in the battered towns of England and the ruined cities of Germany is that the best way to win a war is to prevent it from occurring.
George C. Marshall
There can be no doubt that these attacks are deliberate acts of terrorism, carefully planned and coordinated and as such I condemn them utterly. Terrorism must be fought resolutely wherever it appears.
Kofi Annan
I tore my Achilles’ tendon in September 2005.
Gabe Kapler
I don’t believe that the Bush Administration had something to do with September 11th. I do believe that there were a lot of warning signals, but I don’t think they were ignored on purpose – Bush just wanted to go to the ranch for a month.
Michael Moore
a windy March is lucky. Every pint of March dust brings a peck of September corn, and a pound of October cotton.
Julia Peterkin
When I got home from The Ozzfest in September 2000 with Methods… I just locked myself in my house and I started writing.
Tommy Lee
Moammar Gaddafi, who has called himself the ‘Guide of the First of September Great Revolution of the Socialist People’s Libyan Arab Jamahiriya,’ should go down in history with the Emperor Bokassa and Idi Amin as a grotesque reminder of why people have the right to change their government.
Elliott Abrams
I never got a lot done using a broomstick. You’ve got to have something that’s lethal.
Conrad Burns
On a Tuesday, September 11th, 1973, we had the military coup in Chile that forced me to leave my country eventually. And then, on a Tuesday, September 11th, 2001, we had the terrorist attack in the United States.
Isabel Allende
It is impossible to fully comprehend the evil that would have conjured up such a cowardly and depraved assault upon thousands of innocent people.
Jean Chretien
After the chaos and carnage of September 11th, it is not enough to serve our enemies with legal papers.
George W. Bush
We want from here to express our solidarity and our support to all the victims of these acts of terrorism and their family members. We reiterate our complete, emphatic rejection of all forms of violence and all forms of terrorism.
Vicente Fox
On September 11, 2001, Russia’s then-president, Vladimir Putin, called U.S. President George W. Bush – making Putin the first international leader to speak with Bush after the attacks.
Sergei Lavrov
On September 11, the murders of World Trade Center employees and visitors took the lives of numerous nationalities, ethnic groups and religious followers.
Cliff Stearns
Eisenhower was less deferential to the military than he seemed likely to be, Kennedy was not at all beholden to the pope, George W. Bush was smarter than portrayed and Barack Obama has not led a charge from the left – least of all on behalf of the civil liberties that have eroded since September 11, 2001.
David K. Shipler
Initially, the horrific images of September 11th triggered an enormous wave of solidarity.
Ulrich Beck
Do you remember the 21st night of September? Love was changing the minds of pretenders While chasing the clouds away Our hearts were ringing In the key that our souls were singing. As we danced in the night, Remember how the stars stole the night away.
Maurice White
September 11 happened, and all my friends were like, ‘Let’s join the military!’ and I was the only one who actually did.
Adam Driver
As the representatives of the people we are here to declare that our resolve has not been weakened by these horrific and cowardly acts.
Tom Daschle
The attacks of September 11 – and subsequent acts of terror from London to Madrid to Fort Hood, Texas – embody the most repulsive of human instincts, the will to power at the price of the lives of others.
Jon Meacham
If you made me the national commissioner of football, I’d tell you one thing that I would mandate. The second Saturday in September, we’re going to have conference day. Everybody from the SEC plays a Big 12 team. Everybody from the Big Ten is going to play the ACC. Everybody from the Big East is going to play the Pac-10.
Lou Holtz
In many ways, September feels like the busiest time of the year: The kids go back to school, work piles up after the summer’s dog days, and Thanksgiving is suddenly upon us.
BrenГ© Brown
Catalan politics emancipated from the Spanish politics on September 27, 2015. Since then, we’ve acted with a sovereign mentality, political sovereignty.
Carles Puigdemont
I already had high blood pressure. I have hypertension. And I think the chemo was just too much for my kidneys. And they went into failure. And that was September 12th of 2008. And the doctor rushed me right to the hospital.
Natalie Cole
After the horrific attacks of September 11th, it was evident that our Government needed to be transformed to meet the new challenges of this dangerous world.
Jim Ryun
September morn Do you remember how we danced that night away Two lovers playing scenes from some romantic play September morning still can make me feel this way.
Neil Diamond
After the attacks on September 11th, we all learned lessons.
Michael Hayden
It’s being reported that the economy lost 95,000 jobs in September. And that’s just people leaving the White House.
Jay Leno
Look at what Bush has done. The economy took an incredible hit after September 11. That was a huge shock to the economy. And we’ve recovered a lot quicker than we thought, thanks to Bush and his economic policy.
Christine O’Donnell
I think the heartbreak of September 11 – America’s grief not only over the loss of life but also the loss of our own innocence -has expanded us as people because it has tenderized our hearts. On a psychological level, the American people have matured as a result of that awful day.
Marianne Williamson
Let me close as I did in Gander on September 11, 2002 when I went to that community to thank the people of Gander and the people of Canada for the overwhelming support and help that was given to us in the wake of those attacks on September 11, 2001.
Paul Cellucci
I suffered during the military intervention of May 27, 1960, and then again on March 12, 1971 and again on September 12, 1980, and I was targeted February 28, 1997. My respect for the military aside, I have always been against interventions.
Fethullah Gulen
The terrorism danger to the United States “is even worse than September 11th, when 19 hijackers murdered almost 3,000 Americans.”
Newt Gingrich
There is a harmony in autumn, and a luster in its sky, which through the summer is not heard or seen, as if it could not be, as if it had not been!
Percy Bysshe Shelley
Perhaps at a later point important developments will be traced back to September 11. But for now we do not know which of the many scenarios will actually hold in the future.
Jurgen Habermas
On 16 September 1985, when the Commerce Department announced that the United States had become a debtor nation, the American Empire died.
Gore Vidal
Nobody should underestimate how much the world changed on the 11th of September 2001.
John Howard
The first time I flew after September 11, I honestly was a little paranoid. As I was going to the metal detector, I was looking at my duffel bag, and I’m like, ‘Do I have anything that’s like a weapon?’ I was really paranoid they were gonna find something sharp, and I was gonna get in trouble.
Maz Jobrani
I can govern by bringing people together. And also, I’ve been tested in a way no one else has. I was governor on September 11th, and I’m proud of my leadership in bringing New York through that time. And when I left, we were stronger, we were safer, and we were more united than at any time in my lifetime.
George Pataki
We’re downtown New Yorkers and had very close proximity to the events of September 11th. Like everybody on the island of Manhattan, we were impacted by it in so many ways in terms of what we saw, what we felt, what our daily experience became in the wake of it.
Mike D
Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it.
George Eliot
The peculiar fascination which the South held over my imagination and my limited capital decided me in favor of Atlanta University; so about the last of September I bade farewell to the friends and scenes of my boyhood and boarded a train for the South.
James Weldon Johnson
If you want to travel on the airline system, you give up your privacy. If you want your privacy, don’t fly. Flying is voluntary.
Robert Crandall
But through world wars and a Great Depression, through painful social upheaval and a Cold War, and now through the attacks of September 11, 2001, our Nation has indeed survived.
Nick Rahall
I support security at the borders. I think security is enormously important in the post-September 11th period. I think we have to know who’s coming into this country. We have to be able to identify them; we have to be able to figure out who they are.
Rudy Giuliani
It’s September 21st, a day I love for the balance it carries with it.
Pam Houston
The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, as well as more recent attacks in Madrid, Spain, and London, England, showed in a very tragic way just how vulnerable many areas of the world are to these sorts of actions.
Jo Bonner
September did not want to feel for the Marquess. That’s how villains get you, she knew. You feel badly for them, and next thing you know, you’re tied to train tracks. But her wild, untried heart opened up another bloom inside her, a dark branch heavy with fruit.
Catherynne M. Valente
It wouldn’t quite be fair to say September 11, like, made my career.
Rudy Giuliani
After September 11th, nations from across the globe offered their generous assistance to the people of New York. And whenever our friends around the world need our assistance, New York is there.
George Pataki
‘The Panorama’ is also the last place anywhere in New York where the World Trade Center still stands, whole, as it stood in the early morning of September 11. I can also see the corner where I saw the first tower fall and howled out loud. Seeing the buildings again here is uplifting, healing.
Jerry Saltz
September 11 was terrible, but if one goes back over the history of the IRA, what happened to the Americans wasn’t that terrible.
Doris Lessing
I think the biggest challenge we faced in making ‘The September Issue’ was the fact that people in the fashion world are very suspicious of cameras. They’re used to a camera being the enemy, something that is prying and looking to catch you in a compromising position, something that’s judging you.
R. J. Cutler
I was born in Swansea in the Principality of Wales in September 1934 and named Clive William John Granger. The ‘William John’ names were traditional Granger boy’s names, and my mother liked the name Clive because some popular musician at the time had it.
Clive Granger
It was in the Theatre St. Philippe (they has laid a temporary floor over the parquette seats) in the city we now call New Orleans, in the month of September, and in the year 1803.
George Washington Cable
In the winter, I’m always in Europe. July and September are New Zealand and Chile camps. I’m always on the road.
Lindsey Vonn
The United States was an innocent victim after September 11. It had never attacked or occupied Afghanistan. So therefore it had no choice but to go after the aggressors.
Queen Rania of Jordan
The world changed on September 11, 2001.
Christopher Dodd
The world has devolved into a much more hardened and lethal place since that devastating September morning when Islamists assassinated nearly 3,000 Americans in the worst terror attack on U.S. soil.
Pete Hoekstra
If the September 11 terror attack is supposed to constitute a caesura in world history, it must be able to stand comparison to other events of world historical impact.
Jurgen Habermas
My favourite poem is the one that starts ‘Thirty days hath September’ because it actually tells you something.
Groucho Marx
None of the ways people were talking about September 11 felt right to me. I don’t buy into the way George W. Bush talks about it. I don’t buy into the way the 9/11 commission talks about it. It isn’t that I don’t believe them. It’s just that they’re not the tellings for me.
Jonathan Safran Foer
I don’t have anything to do all year. I’m not on tour until September.
Jen Kirkman
You’ve got a new Spanish-language album out now [“90 Millas,” released in September of 2007], and the single [“No Llores”] is #1 on the Billboard Latin chart.
Gloria Estefan
[New York] is a city largely based on great skyscrapers, and they will always be the essence of New York. That won’t change, just as the character of the people who live here will not be altered by this tragedy.
Donald Trump
Nothing can justify crimes such as those of September 11, but we can think of the United States as an innocent victim only if we adopt the convenient path of ignoring the record of its actions and those of its allies, which are, after all, hardly a secret.
Noam Chomsky
The September 11th, 2012, attacks on the State Department compound in Benghazi, Libya, is important and should be studied because in the big picture, it represents a failed foreign policy that spans across both Bush and Obama Presidencies.
Brandon Webb
We’re going to find out who did this and we’re going after the bastards.
Orrin Hatch
I failed the most important people in my life, you know, on September 8, 2009. People who were relying on me more than anything.
Dakota Meyer
But since I am in the music industry, I don’t want anyone to download music, not on September 9th.
Obie Trice
I often think about how my sons will come to know about September 11th. Something overheard? A newspaper image? In school? I would prefer that they learn about it from my wife and me, in a deliberate and safe way. But it’s hard to imagine ever feeling ready to broach the subject without some impetus.
Jonathan Safran Foer
I was watching ‘The September Issue’ in the back of a theater in New York, and I thought, ‘I know I really can do this with actors.’
R. J. Cutler
Any action taken will be against the terrorist network of Bin Laden…. As for the Taleban, they can surrender the terrorists or face the consequences – and again in any action the aim will be to eliminate their military hardware, cut off their finances, disrupt their supplies, target their troops, not civilians.
Tony Blair
I had surgery to repair the ACL in February 2010 and was back in the gym by June, but rushed things too quickly and ended up re-tearing my MCL in September.
Shawn Johnson
On the 10th of September 1962, sixteen bullets was fired into the home of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Tucker for me.
Fannie Lou Hamer
Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness, Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun.
John Keats
September 11 shocked many Americans into an awareness that they had better pay much closer attention to what the US government does in the world and how it is perceived. Many issues have been opened for discussion that were not on the agenda before. That’s all to the good.
Noam Chomsky
When we faced a possibility here in New York of chemical and biological attack, three days after September 11, I called in all of the experts, academic experts, Nobel Prize laureates, and doctors who had dealt with anthrax, doctors who had dealt with various forms of chemical and biological attack.
Rudy Giuliani
The people and the mindset that killed 3,000 of our fellow citizens on September 11 2001, would have killed not 3,000, but 300,000 if they could have or 3 million or 30 million. We need to do everything we can within our value systems and legal structures to make sure that doesn’t happen.
Tim Pawlenty
The apex of my civic pride and personal contentment was reached on the bright September morning when I entered the public school.
Mary Antin
I’m still the same. Take the fight against terrorism: after the attacks of September 11, I was the first to side with US President [George W.] Bush. And now, after the attacks in Paris, I have done the same with the President of France,[Oliver] Hollande. Terrorism threatens us all.
Vladimir Putin
A late summer garden has a tranquility found no other time of the year.
William F. Longgood
We’re going to rush the hijackers.
Jeremy Glick
Time is passing…yet for the United States of America, there will be no forgetting September the 11th.
George W. Bush
Tragedies are always discussed as if they took place in a void, but actually each tragedy is conditioned by its setting, local and global. The events of 11 September 2001 are not exception.
Tariq Ali
[T]hat old September feeling, left over from school days, of summer passing, vacation nearly done, obligations gathering, books and football in the air … Another fall, another turned page: there was something of jubilee in that annual autumnal beginning, as if last year’s mistakes had been wiped clean by summer.
Wallace Stegner
In the time that we’re here today, more women and children will die violently in the Darfur region than in Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine, Israel or Lebanon. So, after September 30, you won’t need the UN – you will simply need men with shovels and bleached white linen and headstones.
George Clooney
On September 11, 2001, we thought we were going to be attacked many, many times between then and now. We haven’t been. I believe we had a president who made the right decision at the right time… to put us on offense against terrorists.
Rudy Giuliani
But I knew that what had happened was an eye-opener not only to the United States but also to Pakistan, who realized that after what has happened on the 11th of September, it was simply impossible to continue to play those games in Afghanistan.
Lakhdar Brahimi
I did not support any more New York. I lived 10 years there, and after September 11, I felt very European. I did not share the opinion of people in the street, who were deeply influenced by what they heard in the media.
Yannick Noah
What happened on September 11 compels us to focus on who we are as Americans, what we stand for, what really matters in our lives – family, friends, faith and freedom.
Bob Taft
The scenarios of biological or chemical warfare painted in detail by the American media during the months after September 11…only betray the inability of the government to determine the magnitude of the danger.
Jurgen Habermas
All of this suggests that while citizens became more comfortable with President Bush after September 11 and thought him to have the requisite leadership skills, they continue to harbor doubts about his priorities, loyalties, interests, and policies.
Thomas E. Mann
In the context of September 11, there were so many that lost their lives that – how do you single out one person? There were so many acts of heroism that day from so many people, whether it be firemen and police officers in New York and our agents also.
Robert Mueller
‘The September Issue’ is really a film about Anna Wintour’s relationship with long time ‘Vogue’ Creative Director Grace Coddington. The two of them have been working together for two decades, and the extraordinary symbiosis between them has left an indelible mark on the fashion industry.
R. J. Cutler
I feel my brains, like a pear, to see if it’s ripe; it will be exquisite by September.
Virginia Woolf
I was much less offended than others were by the CIA’s interrogations in the years after September 11.
Benjamin Wittes
Nobody’s ever suggested that the attacks of September the 11th were ordered by Iraq. I have suggested, however, that resentment and the lack of hope create the breeding grounds for terrorists who are willing to use suiciders to kill, to achieve an objective. I have made that case.
George W. Bush
Human beings make use of torture when they get chaotic and confused. And Americans certainly got chaotic, vengeful and confused after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
Mohamedou Ould Slahi
Under the harvest moon,
When the soft silver
Drips shimmering
Over the garden nights,
Death, the gray mocker,
Comes and whispers to you
As a beautiful friend
Who remembers.
Carl Sandburg
O sweet September, thy first breezes bring The dry leaf’s rustle and the squirrel’s laughter, The cool fresh air whence health and vigor spring And promise of exceeding joy hereafter.
George Arnold
December is the toughest month of the year. Others are July, January, September, April, November, May, March, June, October, August, and February.
Mark Twain
While it may be true that the UAE has been an ally since the September 11, 2001, attacks, the American people know it has also harbored and aided some of the al Qaeda agents who were involved in that attack.
Bart Gordon
The shock caused by the September 11 events has also lead to a thorough reflection on the existing disparity between rich and poor countries, on the misery of populations of the South.
Omar Bongo
September is the month of maturity; the heaped basket and the garnered sheaf. It is the month of climax and completion. September! I never tire of turning it over and over in my mind. It has warmth, depth and colour. It glows like old amber.
Patience Strong
We won the European Championship last September and now the world title. That is some year for French beach soccer! Now comes the hard part. We have to keep improving and that’s difficult because it’s tough to do better than winning a world title.
Eric Cantona
Prior to September 11, we thought the world beyond our shores was one world of risk and the world in our continent was another world of risk
John Ashcroft
So, for example, a country was into recession right after I was sworn in, a dot-com bust had taken place. Then the attacks of September the 11th, and then of course the great financial meltdown in the -the fundamental question facing any presidency is how do you deal with the hand you’re dealt?
George W. Bush
Since the events of September 11, weve rightfully changed our military strategy so were now taking the fight to those individuals who aim to do us harm, rather than waiting for another atrocious attack to happen.
Jim Gerlach
September 11 is one of our worst days but it brought out the best in us. It unified us as a country and showed our charitable instincts and reminded us of what we stood for and stand for.
Lamar Alexander
We cannot allow Afghanistan to become again a haven for terrorists who inspire, plan and provide support for attacks like those of 11 September 2001, of 7 July 2005 in London, and more.
Bob Ainsworth
Anything Can Happen, on the other hand, is not only about the atrociousness of the September 11 attack, it is also a premonition of the deadly retaliation that was bound to come.
Seamus Heaney
All good things vanish in less than a day, Peace, plenty, pleasure, suddenly decay Go not yet away, bright soul of the sad year, The earth is hell when you leav’st to appear.
Thomas Nash
An attack on one is an attack on all.
George Robertson, Baron Robertson of Port Ellen
These monstrous criminals have demonstrated a vile and brutal affront against humanity.
Silvio Berlusconi
Is it likely that an aircraft carrier or a cruise missile is going to find a person?
Donald Rumsfeld
Back on September 11, terrorists attacked our metropolitan cores, two of America’s great cities. They did that because they knew that was where they could do the most damage and weaken us the most.
Martin O’Malley
We all just keep moving, September. We keep moving until we stop.
Catherynne M. Valente
I’m on VH1 now, will be working on ITV’s This Morning again from September.
Lisa Snowdon
There will be no going back to the era before September the 11th, 2001 – to false comfort in a dangerous world.
George W. Bush
Ethiopia has a robust response, designing development policies with a view to mitigating the impact of climate change. I am proud to say that in the fifth edition of the Global Green Economy Index released in September 2016, Ethiopia is ranked 14 globally in terms of climate change performance.
Tedros Adhanom
If you had found the right candidate in 2000 or 2004, and you could have put that man or woman, given them ballot access in September of the election year, they could have won the election.
Hamilton Jordan
For me, there is nothing that encapsulates both our misguided response to the attacks of September 11th and the entire Iraq war itself more than a sense of lost opportunity.
Seth Moulton
Too many good docs are getting out of the business. Too many OB/GYNs aren’t able to practice their love with women all across the country.
George W. Bush
What do I tell the pilots to do?
Barbara Olson
I had a great fashion season in September so I told my agent that I would really like to walk the 2015 Victoria’s Secret fashion show whilst rocking my short Afro hair.
Maria Borges
As for September 11, let us not too easily grant the Americans possession of that date on the calendar. Like May 1 or July 14 or December 25, September 11 may seem full of significance to some people, while to other people it is just another day.
J. M. Coetzee
I’m not blaming George Bush. But I don’t want Jeb Bush to say my brother kept us safe because September 11 was one of the worst days in the history of this country.
Donald Trump
If, for a moment, it seemed that September 11th could be identified with Iraq, the illusion was short-lived.
Elif Batuman
This president has been reluctant to hold anybody accountable. No one was held accountable after September the 11th. Nobody’s been held accountable after the clear flaws in intelligence leading up to the war in Iraq.
Bob Graham
The young man who, at the end of September, 1924, dismounted from a taxicab in South Square, Westminster, was so unobtrusively American that his driver had some hesitation in asking for double his fare. The young man had no hesitation in refusing it.
John Galsworthy
America’s economy is resilient, and I am confident that Republican pro-growth policies will continue to keep our economy growing – just as it has since after the September 2001 terrorist attacks.
Dennis Hastert
On a foggy, steel gray Saturday in September 2002, Bennet Omalu arrived at the Allegheny County coroner’s office and got his assignment for the day: Perform an autopsy on the body of Mike Webster, a professional football player.
Jeanne Marie Laskas
When you look at where the Democratic field is going relative to foreign policy, they are increasingly moving away from a policy of pre-emptive self-defense that the president has adopted since September 11.
Ed Gillespie
What happened on September 11th is at least, theoretically, small stuff compared to what can happen.
Robert D. Kaplan
September 11 was a godsend for Israel. It could now conjoin its merciless persecution of the Palestinians with Bush’s War against Terror. But my impression is that it wasn’t altogether successful.
Norman Finkelstein
The tarot card ‘The Tower’ seemed a chilling reflection of the events of September 11, 2001.
Neil Peart
From a Christian point of view of course we do want a peaceful world, and I think September 11 did actually make people aware not only of vulnerability and how transitory life is, but there are forces of good and honor and justice which speak to us of God and his love for us.
George Carey
If the death of Osama Bin Laden brings any peace to those who lost loved ones on that awful day in September 2001, that is a great thing. It is more likely, however, just a painful reminder of what was lost.
Henry Rollins
What happened to our nation on a September day set in motion the first great struggle of a new century. The enemies who struck us are determined and they are resourceful. They will not be stopped by a sense of decency or a hint of conscience–but they will be stopped.
George W. Bush
I see water and buildings … Oh my God! Oh my God.
Madeline Amy Sweeney
September 11th does not justify ignoring the Constitution by creating broad new federal police powers. The rule of law is worthless if we ignore it whenever crises occur.
Ron Paul
I’ve always liked language and been a big reader. I always loved books as objects. My favorite time of year as a child was September when we’d go buy all kinds of notebooks and pens and markers for school. I think I wanted to be a writer just so I’d be able to fill up all those pages.
Elaine Equi
You cannot escape where you come from, September. Some part of it remains inside you always, like the slender white heart in the center of the thickest onion.
Catherynne M. Valente
This week, Iranian-backed Houthi rebels seized control of the Yemeni government, heretofore pro-American. In September, they overran Sanaa, the capital. On Tuesday, they seized the presidential palace. On Thursday, they forced the president to resign.
Charles Krauthammer
But since September 11, we have made every effort to try to work closely with state and local law enforcement.
Robert Mueller
Presenting Saturday mornings has been a dream for a long time. And one day in September I am going to wake up very early and it will be a reality. I can’t wait.
Fearne Cotton
The foliage has been losing its freshness through the month of August, and here and there a yellow leaf shows itself like the first gray hair amidst the locks of a beauty who has seen one season too many.
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
The events of September 11 were carried out by people armed not with weapons of mass destruction, but with blades you can buy at a newsagent
Phillip Adams
The U.S. has already suffered a devastating attack on September 11, 2001, and may again become a target.
Linda Chavez
The President reminded us that the war in Iraq is a central battlefield in the war on terror that began the morning of September the 11th.
Mike Pence
It was Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda who attacked the U.S. on September 11, 2001, not Saddam Hussein and Iraq.
Peter DeFazio
One of the amazing things about September 11 is that we lacked the imagination to connect the dots and foresee it.
Ivo Daalder
Ever since September 11, I’ve been quite conservative in what we’ve ordered. We’ve never really been supply-demand anyway.
James Jebbia
We awoke one morning in September, and the world lurched on its axis.
Jeb Bush
We don’t get typhoons in December. They normally end by September. A typhoon happening in October is considered a late event.
Benigno Aquino III
The country was not focused on terrorism before September 11th.
Louis J. Freeh
We’ve supported the U.S. every step of the way. The Philippines was the first government in Asia after September 11, in fact, the night of September 11; it was nighttime for us then. It was daytime here. We were the first government in Asia to come out and say that we’re supporting the U.S.
Gloria Macapagal Arroyo
You can figure out how bad a person you are by how soon after September 11th you masturbated, like how long you waited… and for me it was between the two buildings going down… I had to do it, otherwise they’d win.
Louis C. K.
Speaking as a New Yorker, I found [September 11] a shocking and terrifying event, particularly the scale of it.
Edward Said
We are more determined than ever to live our lives in freedom.
Rudy Giuliani
If September 11th has taught us anything, it’s certainly that the world has never been so interdependent. It is impossible now to be an island of prosperity in a sea of despair.
Bono
We’ve hadВ no evidence that Saddam Hussein was involved with the September 11th.
George W. Bush
In ‘The King’s Speech,’ patriotism is utterly contained within a historical moment, the third of September, 1939, where the aggressor is clear, the fight is clear, it hasn’t become complicated over time.
Tom Hooper
On the morning of September 11, 2001, I rushed home before the kids left for school and gathered them around our dining room table and told them what had happened. Like everyone else, we struggled for words to describe to our kids why such a thing would occur.
Bob Goff
You have to pay your dues. And what’s nice, after booking a lot of new people… I counted the other day. We’re in September and we’ve already booked between 30 or 40 people who’ve never done the show before.
Scott Aukerman
That’s Venus, September thought. She was the goddess of love. It’s nice that love comes on first thing in the evening, and goes out last in the morning. Love keeps the light on all night.
Catherynne M. Valente
It is hard to imagine the World Series being held in the sweet hazy sunshine of late September rather than the sour night air of late October, but that is precisely what has transpired in baseball over the past 50 years, a deterioration from light to darkness.
George Vecsey
I will never forget the bright September day, standing at my desk in the White House, when my young assistant said that a plane had hit the World Trade Center – and then a second one – and a third, the Pentagon.
Condoleezza Rice
For my very first September issue, I put Naomi Campbell on the cover. She was wearing this orange Anne Klein sequin suit – it would probably look incredibly ’80s today.
Anna Wintour
September 11 reinforced for me that whatever I’m writing about, it better be something that really matters to me because we don’t know what’s going to happen tomorrow. And for me it’s stories about people in pain in New York.
Stephen Adly Guirgis
I was arrested in September 2011 and detained for nine months before I was found guilty in June 2012 under Ethiopia’s overly broad Anti-Terrorism Proclamation, which ostensibly covers the ‘planning, preparation, conspiracy, incitement and attempt’ of terrorist acts.
Eskinder Nega
When Queen Victoria became Britain’s longest ruling monarch in September 1896, ousting George III, church bells rang throughout the country, and beacons blazed on hilltops.
Ingrid Seward
So now we are pushing economic reform, bank reform and enterprise reform. So we can finish that reform this year, in September or October. Then our economy may be much more, you know, normalized.
Kim Dae-jung
You and I, being grown-up and having lost our hearts at least twice or thrice along the way, might shut our eyes and cry out: Not that way, child! But as we have said, September was Somewhat Heartless, and felt herself reasonably safe on that road. Children always do.
Catherynne M. Valente
Since September 11, 2001, many in this nation and this Congress have a deeper appreciation for the importance of the sacrifices made by our law enforcement officers.
Jerry Costello
The behaviour of President Bush on 11 September certainly gives rise to not unnatural suspicions.
Gore Vidal
After we were hit on September 11 2001, we were in a state of national shock. Less than six weeks later, on October 26 2001, the USA Patriot Act was passed by a Congress that had little chance to debate it; many said that they scarcely had time to read it.
Naomi Wolf
Up from the meadows rich with corn, Clear in the cool September morn
John Greenleaf Whittier
The city is going to survive, we are going to get through it, It’s going to be very, very difficult time. I don’t think we yet know the pain that we’re going to feel when we find out who we lost, but the thing we have to focus on now is getting this city through this, and surviving and being stronger for it.
Rudy Giuliani
Well, we’ve faced very difficult decisions and challenges in our country, every one of us have, as we – since September 11th, as we fought the war on terror, all of those decisions that the President had to make to put young men and women in harm’s way.
Laura Bush
It was not a religion that attacked us that September day. It was al-Qaeda. We will not sacrifice the liberties we cherish or hunker down behind walls of suspicion and mistrust.
Barack Obama
So, for example, a country was into recession right after I was sworn in, a dot-com bust had taken place. Then the attacks of September the 11th, and then of course the great financial meltdown in the – the fundamental question facing any presidency is how do you deal with the hand you’re dealt?
George W. Bush
September’s Baccalaureate A combination is Of Crickets – Crows – and Retrospects And a dissembling Breeze That hints without assuming – An Innuendo sear That makes the Heart put up its Fun And turn Philosopher.
Emily Dickinson
America is stronger than ever. We will forever remember those we lost on September 11, 2001. In honoring their memory, we will remain true to our commitment to freedom and democracy.
Evan Bayh
For man, autumn is a time of harvest, of gathering together. For nature, it is a time of sowing, of scattering abroad.
Edwin Way Teale
The number of casualties will be more than any of us can bear ultimately. And I don’t think we want to speculate on the number of casualties. The effort now has to be to save as many people as possible.
Rudy Giuliani
There were no weapons of mass destruction and Saddam Hussein was not involved in the September 11th attack.
Charles B. Rangel
The attacks of September 11 persuaded many Americans that what might seem to be obscure or distant potential threats can very quickly materialize and it therefore makes sense to attend to them even before they become urgent.
Michael Mandelbaum
I haven’t seen it. I don’t really need Michael Moore to tell me about September 11th.
Rudy Giuliani
The whole world has changed after September 11th.
Jerry Bruckheimer
I heard a bird sing
In the dark of December
A magical thing
And sweet to remember.
‘We are nearer to Spring
Than we were in September,’
I heard a bird sing
In the dark of December.
Oliver Herford
The storm ate up September’s cry of despair, delighted at its mischief, as all storms are.
Catherynne M. Valente
For summer there, bear in mind, is a loitering gossip, that only begins to talk of leaving when September rises to go.
George Washington Cable
‘Power’ usually starts principal photography around mid September, and the first table read is always like one big family reunion. The most common comment we hear is how ‘well rested’ everyone looks… something that can’t be said by the end of the season.
Lela Loren
People say, ‘The government couldn’t carry out the September 11th attack, it’s too big, they’d get caught!’ They DID get caught! They’re just counting on you to be dumb and to go along with it.
Alex Jones
Prior to September 11, we thought the world beyond our shores was one world of risk and the world in our continent was another world of risk.
John Ashcroft
On September 11 last year international terrorism entered a new dimension.
Otto Schily
Covering Richard Nixon’s triumphant run in 1968 turned out to be my last major assignment as a general correspondent for CBS News. In September of that year, ’60 Minutes’ made its debut and I began the best, the most fulfilling job a reporter could imagine.
Mike Wallace
Dip a slice of bread in batter. That’s September: yellow, gold, soft and sticky. Fry the bread. Now you have October: chewier, drier, streaked with browns. The day in question fell somewhere in the middle of the french toast process.
Tom Robbins
The night before I began my career as a presidential campaign reporter, in September 2007, I finished Theodore White’s ‘The Making of the President,’ the classic account of the 1960 race, which opened up a new era of campaign reporting.
Michael Hastings
18th September, 1970; Jimi Hendrix dies. I’m still on the football team when I get the news. So I take my helmet off and confront the coach to tell him I’m quitting the team. In a moment of brilliance he gives me one look and says “OK”.
Joe Satriani
Since September 11 2001, editors in America have faced some excruciating choices, as the attempt to wage a war against a new kind of enemy sometimes strained the boundaries of our laws and values.
Bill Keller
September the 11th was a huge shock in the United States. It was the first time you had been hit at home in your own territory by terrorist on this scale.
John Major
Making your Christmas cake in September is perfect, as too fresh a cake crumbles when cut.
Mary Berry
On September 11, people were shaken, but they quickly calmed down. There was a flash of awareness, which lasted a few fractions of a second. People could feel that something was happening. Then a blanket of silence covered up the crack in our certainty of safety.
Rene Girard
Together with the rise of the internet, September 11 and its aftermath has changed most of our lives.
Hedi Slimane
Like every American, I will never forget where I was on the morning of September 11, 2001. As a member of Congress from Indiana, that day my duties took me to Capitol Hill and to sights and sounds I will never forget.
Mike Pence
Last September 16th, I was walking in downtown Seattle when this pick-up truck pulls up in front of me. Guy leans out the window and yells, “Go back to your own country,” and I was laughing so hard because it wasn’t so much a hate crime as a crime of irony.
Sherman Alexie
I am not a particularly political person, but, as a Tribeca resident, the commodification of September 11th is offensive to me.
Lena Dunham
The death of Abdel Nasser on September 28, 1970, was an irreversible setback for Egypt.
Fidel Castro
Let us learn from the lessons of September 11 and not wait for a major strike before we act. We must work together – Democrats and Republicans, Congress and the White House, government and the private sector – to make our country a safer and more prosperous place.
Dan Coats
That morning of 11 September 2001, as we watched the twin towers crumble on live television, America and I would develop a bond that has proven deeper and more enduring – for better or worse, through sickness and health – than the one I had with my now ex-husband.
Mona Eltahawy
Summer night– even the stars are whispering to each other.
Kobayashi Issa
When the planes crashed into the World Trade Centre on September 11, 2001, Bush immediately identified what he thought was the true cause. It was because the Muslims were jealous of the freedom of the American people. It was because the Muslims were poor. This exposes a lack of understanding of things on his part.
Mahathir Mohamad
So I think, if September 11 taught us anything, it taught us that we’re vulnerable, and vulnerable in ways that we didn’t fully understand.
Condoleezza Rice
I don’t work very hard. I dye myself orange and I read out loud in the months from September to December when ‘Strictly’ is on.
Claudia Winkleman
In the aftermath of September 11, you can’t – as Tony Blair was so fond of suggesting – draw a line under historical events. They don’t go away. They come back.
Nick Harkaway
A CBS spokesman said the network’s policy was tightened in September 2006 to forbid contributions to political campaigns. Previously, there was a bit of wiggle room.
Bill Dedman
I had just moved to New York in September 2001, and immediately 9/11 happened, and of course it completely changed the city and everybody who lived there.
Cassandra Clare
The best times to visit the Gobi and Three Camel Lodge are June, and September through October. By the beginning of November, it is ferociously cold, while October can swing surreally between warm days and clear, chilly nights and frosty mornings dusted with snow – perfect.
Lawrence Osborne
September 11 had such a strong visual component, the most visually documented event in human history. Nothing’s ever been seen by as many people as that was. Our experiences of the day, our memories of the day are just so tied up in images of buildings falling and bodies falling.
Jonathan Safran Foer
The wrongful arrest of tens of thousands of British Muslims after the September 11 attacks can be explained by the very poor intelligence the police had, and, just possibly, excused by the fact that a terrorist action in Britain linked to British Muslims would have been hugely damaging.
Geoff Mulgan
Sorrow and scarlet leaf, Sad thoughts and sunny weather. Ah me, this glory and this grief Agree not well together!
Thomas Parsons
The attack on Americans in Benghazi on September 11, 2012 is a stark reminder that our nation must remain vigilant in protecting our citizens from the threat of Al-Qaeda and similar extremist terrorist entities around the world.
Bob Corker
Now Nostradamus said that the king of Terror would appear September 1999. I believe Nostradamus knew his Bible and knew what the six day theory was, and so he could put it all together.
Jack Van Impe
The September 11 attacks were the greatest work of art in the cosmos…compared to that, we composers are nothing
Karlheinz Stockhausen
On 11 September, I was living in Greenwich Village, New York; my children learned to tell south from north by looking at the World Trade Center.
Yochai Benkler
September twenty-second, Sir, the bough cracks with unpicked apples, and at dawn the small-mouth bass breaks water, gorged with spawn.
Robert Lowell
The Europeans must finally understand the incredible shock triggered by the attacks of September 11.
Brent Scowcroft
I visited the Pentagon a few days after September 11, and I still remember so vividly the smell of terror surrounding the entire building and complex. I was angry that such a brutal act of violence was committed against innocent people.
Randy Forbes
Our hearts are with you and we are ready to provide any assistance at any time….This is a war between good and evil and between humanity and the bloodthirsty.
Ariel Sharon
September 2001 turned out to be an unusually bad time to sell stocks: By New Year’s Day 2002, little more than three months after the post-9/11 low reached on Sept. 21, the S&P 500 had gained close to 20 percent.
James B. Stewart
T’is the last rose of summer,
Left blooming alone.
Thomas Moore
Autumn seemed to arrive suddenly that year. The morning of the first September was crisp and golden as an apple.
J. K. Rowling
Seeing the news on ‘FOX Sports Live’ of yet another baseball player on crutches always reminds me of the September night in 2005 when I tore my Achilles tendon in Toronto.
Gabe Kapler
On the night of the 1st of September we observed for the first time signs of the natives being in the neighbourhood. Fires were seen on the low land near Cape Frederick Henry, and at daylight we saw the natives with our glasses.
William Bligh
I wish it were September 1948 and I wish I were 21 again.
June Brown
The American Left complains that we have no right to be the world’s police force. On the contrary. We’ve been the world’s janitor for almost a century, and after September 11, it became obvious it’s better, safer, and more productive to change things instead of cleaning up after the mess.
Tammy Bruce
They found out about him in July and stayed angry all through August. They tried to kill him in September. It was way too soon. They weren’t ready. The attempt was a failure. It could have been a disaster, but it was actually a miracle. Because nobody noticed.
Lee Child
According to the Gallup Poll, 24 percent of American adults exercised regularly in 1961, and 50 percent after 1968. The peak was 59 percent in 1984, dropping off to 51 percent last September.
Kenneth H. Cooper
September is the time to begin again. In the country, when I could smell the wood-smoke in the forest, and the curtains could be drawn when the tea came in, on the first autumn evening, I always felt that my season of good luck had come.
Eleanor Perenyi
In 2001, when the economy was strong, the country was able to absorb substantial deficit spending in the wake of September 11 without constricting the Federal Reserve’s flexibility to ease interest rates.
Brian Deese
As the weeks went on, I realized there was an important role comedy would play in healing the tragedies of September 11. Comedy can help people cope, and many people were coming to the clubs to laugh out the stress.
Maz Jobrani
If the events of September 11, 2001, have proven anything, it’s that the terrorists can attack us, but they can’t take away what makes us American – our freedom, our liberty, our civil rights. No, only Attorney General John Ashcroft can do that.
Jon Stewart
September 11 was a wake-up call to me. I don’t want to contribute to the hate in any shape or form. I now regret in the past being silent about what I have heard in the Islamic discourse and being part of that with my own anger.
Hamza Yusuf
Egypt firmly and strongly condemns such attacks on civilians and soldiers that led to the deaths of a large number of innocent victims.
Hosni Mubarak
Everyone knows Earth, Wind & Fire. We know ‘September,’ all the big sort of hits from going out and dancing and stuff. When I was developing St. Lucia, I really started listening a little bit deeper, listening back to their stuff from the ’70s and ’80s, and really dug into it.
St. Lucia
I was born on September 30, 1939, in Rosheim, a small medieval city of Alsace in France. My father, Pierre Lehn, then a baker, was very interested in music, played the piano and the organ, and became, later, having given up the bakery, the organist of the city. My mother Marie kept the house and the shop.
Jean-Marie Lehn
Religious extremists want to show us that the only possibility is for us to kill each other, so September 11 is not only heinous murder, it is also global performance. It is also putting an idea into the world, an idea of destruction.
Eboo Patel
Victory looks like no more September 11ths.
Dan Crenshaw
According to Ted Watt’s ‘The First Labor Day Parade,’ the September date was chosen because it coincided with a Knights of Labor conference in New York, thus guaranteeing a sizable turnout for the festivities.
Brendan I. Koerner
Because by the time I went to the village school in Switzerland, we’re talking about September 1965, she was finishing ‘Wait Until Dark’ which was released in ’66. That’s when she gave up being an actress to be a full-time mom – in a farmhouse with fruit trees.
Sean Hepburn Ferrer
… but as has been said, September read often, and liked it best when words did not pretend to be simple, but put on their full armor and rode out with colors flying.
Catherynne M. Valente
No, we did not do this, and we are not with you.
Ali Khamenei
My best moment of 2011 would definitely be the birth of my daughter six weeks ago, on September 25.
Dylan Walsh
I think the heartbreak of September 11 – America’s grief not only over the loss of life but also the loss of our own innocence – has expanded us as people because it has tenderized our hearts. On a psychological level, the American people have matured as a result of that awful day.
Marianne Williamson
David Lander and I met in September of 1965. We were both students at Carnegie Tech, as it was then known. Before the Mellon money came in.
Michael McKean
And so every one of us in the FBI, I don’t care if it’s a file clerk someplace or an agent there or a computer specialist, understands that our main mission is to protect the public from another September 11, another terrorist attack.
Robert Mueller
In some ways, September 11, 2001, seems a long time ago. Yet we have done so much in only a few years, and we will continue to do so in the future, to prevent such attacks on America.
George Allen
After September 11th, freedom of speech in America has become a topic that’s touchier than a Vatican summer camp.
Dennis Miller
War has been waged against us by stealth and deceit and murder. This nation is peaceful, but fierce when stirred to anger. This conflict was begun on the timing and terms of others. It will end in a way, and at an hour, of our choosing.
George W. Bush
It is so important for me to keep authentic Cuban sounds alive. All of these great artists have changed the landscape of Latin music and it’s an honor to have them on this album [“90 Millas,” released in September of 2007]. I believe this album will expose a new generation to the richness of Cuban music.
Gloria Estefan
I must have been one of the least surprised people on earth on September 11. I felt very braced for that. I knew something like that was going to come.
Christopher Hitchens
What we learned on September 11 is that the unthinkable is now thinkable in the world
John Ashcroft
In the aftermath of September 11th, it is critical to secure our borders.
Bobby Jindal
In light of the events on September 11, my country has told me that I should not cooperate with terrorists. I therefore am refusing to cooperate with members of Congress who are some of the most extreme terrorists in history.
Craig Rosebraugh
When NBC switched the series in September to Tuesday nights opposite ‘Maude’ it died. ‘Bonanza’ had become too familiar with a Sunday audience. Tuesday just wasn’t the day for it.
Lorne Greene
For twenty years, Islamic Jihadists have been attacking American interests around the world and we did not take them seriously until September 11th, 2001.
Zach Wamp
Try to remember the kind of September
When life was slow and oh
so mellow.
Try to remember the kind of September
When grass was green and grain was yellow.
Try to remember the kind of September
When you were a tender and callow fellow.
Try to remember and if you remember
then follow
follow.
Tom Jones
The whole international community will be united in condemning what they have done.
George Robertson, Baron Robertson of Port Ellen
If a guy hits .300 every year, what does he have to look forward to? I always tried to stay around .190, with three or four RBI. And I tried to get them all in September. That way I always had something to talk about during the winter.
Bob Uecker
Fiction’s essential activity is to imagine how others feel, what a Saturday afternoon in an Italian town in the 2nd Century looked like. My ambition is solely to get some effect, as of light on stone in a forest on a September day.
Guy Davenport
So now we are pushing economic reform, bank reform and enterprise reform. So we can finish that reform this year, in September or October. Then our economy may be much more, you know, normalized.
Kim Dae Jung
In the past, a blow to the international system’s strongest power would have been welcomed by its rivals. In the wake of September 11, however, every significant government in the world declared its support for the United States.
Michael Mandelbaum
I wrote and finished the script for ‘Man in the Middle’ two weeks after the September 11 bombing. It’s a very American film about an ex-diplomat based in the Middle East, a leader in the U.S. administration who now sells used cars in the Middle East.
Ziad Doueiri
There were no weapons of mass destruction and Saddam Hussein was not involved in the September 11th attack.
Charles Rangel
The September 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon prompted a fundamental shift in the American government’s approach to Islamic terrorism.
Amy Waldman
We will make sure our troops have all that is necessary to complete their missions. That’s why I went to the Congress last September and proposed fundamental – supplemental funding, which is money for armor and body parts and ammunition and fuel…
George W. Bush
When September 6, 1994, arrives, no one else can become saved. The end has come.
Harold Camping
I love the excess of Christmas. The shopping season that begins in September, the bad pop star recordings of Christmas carols, the decorations that don’t know when to come down.
Mo Rocca
Will someone please explain to me the logic that says we can trust someone with a Boeing 747 in bad weather, but not with a Glock 9mm?
Zell Miller
The lessons of September 11 are that if we allow law enforcement to do their work free of political interference, if we give them adequate resources and modern technologies, we can protect our citizens without intruding on our liberties.
Lucille Roybal-Allard
September 11, 2001, revealed heroism in ordinary people who might have gone through their lives never called upon to demonstrate the extent of their courage.
Geraldine Brooks
In September 1993, President Clinton presided over a handshake between Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and Palestine Liberation Organization Chairman Yasser Arafat on the White House lawn – the climax of a ‘day of awe,’ as the press described it.
Noam Chomsky
Blessed be the Lord for the beauty of summer and spring, for the air, the water, the verdure, and the song of birds.
Carl Linnaeus
This resolution is further proof that Congress stands firmly behind our troops and remains resolved to pursue those responsible for the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, until they are discovered, detained, and punished.
John Doolittle
The Philadelphia Feds manufacturers report for September revealed that despite a sharp slowdown, its prices paid index surged 257 points.
Peter Schiff
My real education began when I entered the University of Chicago in September 1951 as a graduate student.
James Cronin
I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers. It would be terrible if we just skipped from September to November, wouldn’t it?
Lucy Maud Montgomery
The terrorist attacks of September 11th and the courageous actions of our armed forces in Afghanistan and Iraq remind us that friends of tyranny and enemies of freedom still exist.
Carl Levin
I was born on September 27, 1918, the second of five children.
Martin Ryle
I hurry to express to you and your fellow citizens my profound sorrow and my closeness in prayer for the nation at this dark and tragic moment.
Pope John Paul II
Friends are very understanding when you tell them in April that you can see them next September, but there is a limit to how long you can go on like that.
Jill Dando
September 11 was horrific, but I’ve been through enough crises before that I had my own pattern as to how to collect facts, what a leader should do, how to communicate with people, how to set up operating mechanisms to work our way through it.
Jeffrey R. Immelt
The prompt assimilation of that intelligence will be essential if we are to avoid another September 11th.
Adam Schiff
But September 11 marked a big change in the sense that the public was suddenly interested, and as a professor at a public university I felt a responsibility to respond to all of the inquiries about the Islamic world.
Juan Cole
Since its enactment in the weeks following the September 11 terrorist attacks, the tools in the Patriot Act have been used by law enforcement to stop more than 400 terrorist threats to our families and communities.
Jim Gerlach
I’d like to record somewhere really different. Rent a really big house and get a mobile in and set up in the dining room. Maybe New England; it’d be nice in September or October.
Robert Smith
The war waged against terror since September 11 puts a strain on democracy itself, because it is mostly waged in secret, using means that are at the edge of both law and morality. Yet democracies have shown themselves capable of keeping the secret exercise of power under control.
Michael Ignatieff
The winter period between September and March in this country, when land sits fallow and is subject to topsoil loss, we could be enriching the soil and growing all the biomass we need to replace imported gasoline.
Vinod Khosla
September is the other January.
Gretchen Rubin
This outrageous and vicious act of violence against the United States is unforgivable.
Junichiro Koizumi
After September 11, the European governments have completely failed. They are incapable of seeing beyond their own national scope of interests.
Jurgen Habermas
I am troubled… that someone would sell a book, trading on their former service as a government insider with access to our nation’s most valuable intelligence, in order to profit from the suffering that this nation endured on September 11, 2001.
Bill Frist
Up until the time Turner Broadcasting bought Hanna-Barbera, it was essentially an independent studio whose planning cycle had to be nine months. You got a pickup in January, and you put it on the air in September. That’s been the cycle.
Fred Seibert
I was just 13 when ‘The Big Chill’ was released in late September 1983, so I didn’t catch all of its nuances when I sneaked into the theater to see it. But I could tell one thing for sure: These people were grown-ups.
Meghan Daum
After September 11, I got to understand a little bit of his deep love for this country.
Patti Davis
Getting this caliber of musicians together [for “90 Millas” CD in September of 2007] is almost impossible to do again.
Gloria Estefan
No spring nor summer beauty hath such grace as I have seen in one autumnal face.
John Donne
One of the reasons I decided to apply for American citizenship after something like a quarter of century of living here on a British, European Union passport and a green card, was my identification with the United States in the post-September 11th period.
Christopher Hitchens
All your renown is like the summer flower that blooms and dies; because the sunny glow which brings it forth, soon slays with parching power.
Dante Alighieri
In many ways, September feels like the busiest time of the year: The kids go back to school, work piles up after the summer’s dog days, and Thanksgiving is suddenly upon us.
Brene Brown
After September, I’ve reflected on the campaign, and being a new father of twin boys, I really feel like I owe it to the kids in the city to give this a shot and make this district a better place.
Jeffrey O. Henley
My birthday is in August – right before September, so I have that “back to school” feeling ingrained in me so that time of year is when I usually do personal goals or resolutions.
Jen Kirkman
Every week, as an 11-year-old kid, I would tune in to what was really the first American Idol-type program, a radio show called ‘Major Bowes’ Amateur Hour.’ The winning group on the evening of September 8, 1935, was called the Hoboken Four, and their spokesman was Frank Sinatra, then aged 19.
Tony Bennett
I am certain that I speak on behalf of my entire nation when I say: September 11th we are all Americans – in grief, as in defiance.
Benjamin Netanyahu
We have as Americans a right to be here, and we also have a responsibility to build bridges of reconciliation with the families of those who died on 11 September.
Sharif El-Gamal
I want pills called September 10. You take one and your mind feels like the 11th never happened.
Douglas Coupland
Since the attack on the United States on September 11 2001, and the US retaliation in Afghanistan and Iraq, there must be few people who have not felt a twinge of nostalgia for the cold war.
James Buchan
Legislation passed in the aftermath of September 11, 2001 enhanced our intelligence capabilities and strengthened our national defense, but until now our nation’s immigration policies have not adapted to the needs of a post-September 11th world.
Chris Chocola
Nine years ago on September 14, 2001, I placed the lone vote against the ‘Authorization for Use of Military Force’ – an authorization that I knew would provide a blank check to wage war anywhere, at any time, and for any length.
Barbara Lee
It felt like a very, very weird thing to go on the set on September 13th. I would never want to glorify that.
Mia Kirshner
Understand the causes of terror? Yes, we should try, but let there be no moral ambiguity about this: nothing could ever justify the events of September 11 and it is to turn justice on its head to pretend it could
Tony Blair
September 2001. A sunny day in New York. Many of us who are writers were at work on the transformation of life into a poem, story, a chapter of a novel, when terror pounced from the sky, and the world made witness to it.
Nadine Gordimer
For eight months, from January to August of 2007, I filmed with Anna Wintour and her team at ‘Vogue’ as they created the September 2007 issue of the magazine.
R. J. Cutler
On September 11 2001, America felt its vulnerability even to threats that gather on the other side of the Earth. We resolved then, and we are resolved today, to confront every threat from any source that could bring sudden terror and suffering to America.
George W. Bush
I was born on 7 September 1917 at Sydney in Australia. My father was English-born and a graduate of Oxford; my mother, born Hilda Eipper, was descended from a German minister of religion who settled in New South Wales in 1832. I was the second of four children.

Irrespective of the conflict with America it is a human duty to show sympathy with the American people, and be with them at these horrifying and awesome events which are bound to awaken human conscience.
Muammar al-Gaddafi
We can best honor the memories of those who were killed on September 11 and those who have been killed fighting the war on terrorism, by dedicating ourselves to building a free and peaceful world safe from the threat of terrorism.
Jack Reed
Autumn is full of leave-taking. In September the swallows are chattering of destination and departure like a crowd of tourists.
Mary Webb
It would be a tragedy if the remarkable international coalition against terrorism, successfully marshalled in the aftermath of 11 September, were to fragment over a unilateral U.S. strike against Baghdad.
Charles Kennedy
The first time I realised I was patriotic was after September 11th.
Claire Danes
After Lockerbie, everyone thought, now we’ve learned the lesson of how to be proactive instead of being reactive. Unfortunately, September 11 came and we know the result. Thousands of people lost their lives. Security totally failed, not at one airport, at three different airports around the country.
Isaac Yeffet
Everything wrong with America led to the point where the country built that tower of Babel, which consequently had to be destroyed. And then came the next shock. We had to realize that the people that did this were brilliant. It showed that the ego we could hold up until September 10 was inadequate.
Norman Mailer
You may think that those aeroplanes in this city on 9/11 came out of a clear, blue sky. I believe they emerged out of a swamp of hatred created by us.
George Galloway
We completely condemn this very dangerous attack, and I convey my condolences to the American people, to the American president and to the American administration, not only in my name, but on behalf of the Palestinian people.
Yasser Arafat
Five years have come, and five years have gone, and still we stand together as one. We come back to this place to remember the heartbreaking anniversary – and each person who died here – those known and unknown to us, whose absence is always with us.
Michael Bloomberg
I moved out to L.A. in July and Hot L Baltimore started in September or October. So I had done a few things. I’d done a Mary [Tyler Moore]. I’d done a Waltons. I hadn’t done a Rhoda yet I don’t think.
