The public doesn’t know what to believe anymore. We don’t know what stories are supposedly true, this idea of ‘fake news.’ We watch it on what I guess you would call a split-focus. It’s half entertainment and half mystery.

Let him that would move the world first move himself.
I would go to the deeps a hundred times to cheer a downcast spirit. It is good for me to have been afflicted, that I might know how to speak a word in season to one that is weary.

I wish they would only take me as I am.
If I knew of something that could serve my nation but would ruin another, I would not propose it to my prince, for I am first a man and only then a Frenchman… because I am necessarily a man, and only accidentally am I French.

If I told you I was a Republican and you were a Democrat, no matter what I said after that, it would be tempered with your opinions.

Women are the real reason we get up every day. I’m talking about real men. If there were no women, I would not even have to bathe, because why would I care? These are guys I’m hanging with. I wake up for a woman every day of my life to make it happen for her.

A dictatorship would be a heck of a lot easier, there’s no question about it.
I never dared to be radical when young for fear it would make me conservative when old.
Poetry, at its best, is the language your soul would speak if you could teach your soul to speak.

Nature doesn’t need people – people need nature; nature would survive the extinction of the human being and go on just fine, but human culture, human beings, cannot survive without nature.

A sincere and steadfast co-operation in promoting such a reconstruction of our political system as would provide for the permanent liberty and happiness of the United States.
Be kind, don’t judge, and have respect for others. If we can all do this, the world would be a better place. The point is to teach this to the next generation.
I’ve known my best friend since I was a baby, and I don’t know what I would do without her. She is always straight with me and can make me laugh hysterically. Everyone should have someone like that in their life.
Life wasn’t easy growing up; it was frustrating. If I had been a better reader, then that would have come easily, sports would have come easily, everything would have come easily, and I never would have realized that the way you get ahead in life is hard work.
I would rather live my life as if there is a God and die to find out there isn’t, than live as if there isn’t and to die to find out that there is.
When you see a person, do you just concentrate on their looks? It’s just a first impression. Then there’s someone who doesn’t catch your eye immediately, but you talk to them and they become the most beautiful thing in the world. The greatest actors aren’t what you would call beautiful sex symbols.
I would as soon leave my son a curse as the almighty dollar.
I always knew looking back on my tears would bring me laughter, but I never knew looking back on my laughter would make me cry.
I basically taught myself how to DJ, but I’ve been inspired by DJs throughout my whole career. I have some good friends that would hook us up with music. You learn some little things here and there from each DJ and you just take it and put your own style into to it.
Every one desires to live long, but no one would be old.
Doing voiceovers is so great because even though many people would think it’s just your voice, you really do use all your physicality. I’ve done everything from playing a butterfly to Alice in Wonderland when she’s 10 feet tall, so it allows you to be an actor and build new characters.

I remember sitting in a parking lot and turning my radio up and walking down the street to see how far you could feel it.
Romantic love is mental illness. But it’s a pleasurable one. It’s a drug. It distorts reality, and that’s the point of it. It would be impossible to fall in love with someone that you really saw.

Try and live your life the way you wish other people would live theirs.
He who would learn to fly one day must first learn to stand and walk and run and climb and dance; one cannot fly into flying.
I think it’s difficult to say what exactly made me become a successful DJ. It depends on so many different things. If I were given an award, I would thank my family, friends, Tiesto and the great team behind me for all their support and hard work. Without them, I wouldn’t be where I am today.
If honor were profitable, everybody would be honorable.
Cheerfulness, it would appear, is a matter which depends fully as much on the state of things within, as on the state of things without and around us.
Govern a great nation as you would cook a small fish. Do not overdo it.

The marvelous richness of human experience would lose something of rewarding joy if there were no limitations to overcome. The hilltop hour would not be half so wonderful if there were no dark valleys to traverse.
I would say it simply: No one can give that which he doesn’t personally possess, which means we cannot transmit the Holy Spirit in an effective way, render the Spirit perceptible, if we ourselves aren’t close to the Spirit.
The state controlling a woman would mean denying her full autonomy and full equality.
If a composer could say what he had to say in words he would not bother trying to say it in music.
In science, ‘fact’ can only mean ‘confirmed to such a degree that it would be perverse to withhold provisional assent.’ I suppose that apples might start to rise tomorrow, but the possibility does not merit equal time in physics classrooms.
I never, ever grew up as a young woman believing that my gender would stand in the way of doing anything I wanted.
I’m a Muslim, but I think Jesus would have a drink with me. He would be cool. He would talk to me.

Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree.
Some people would call me a workaholic. I don’t consider this time: I just love my work so much, so it’s my real hobby, OK? And, yeah, getting some play during working hours for which you are paid is the best job I can recommend for anyone around!
I would never date a celebrity. I would want someone with real skills. Doctor, nurse, electrician… tailor.

Without electricity, the air would rot.
Most people would succeed in small things if they were not troubled with great ambitions.
When I was an orphan, I was the richest kid at the orphanage because everyone else was complaining about not having anything. But when I discovered that you could get two cents for a Coca-Cola bottle, I would follow people around who were drinking it and ask them if they were almost through with it.
If I were not Alexander, I would be Diogenes.
Because, you know, resilience – if you think of it in terms of the Gold Rush, then you’d be pretty depressed right now because the last nugget of gold would be gone. But the good thing is, with innovation, there isn’t a last nugget. Every new thing creates two new questions and two new opportunities.
I would encourage you: be informed – knowledge is power.
The one question I would have for Donald Trump is inspired by his ‘Make America Great Again’ cap. I would ask him, ‘When was America great? When did America not have an economic depression or a war?’
Sometime I wish the aliens would abduct me and crown me as their leader.
I would fight for my liberty so long as my strength lasted, and if the time came for me to go, the Lord would let them take me.
I really haven‘t had that exciting of a life. There are a lot of things I wish I would have done, instead of just sitting around and complaining about having a boring life. So I pretty much like to make it up. I’d rather tell a story about somebody else.
I would never die for my beliefs because I might be wrong.
I would probably have more in common with a whale than with a bourgeois married couple employed at worthy institutions that I would wipe from the face of the earth if it was given to me to do so.

I would like to learn, or remember, how to live.
I’m going to tell you what my religion is. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Period. Terminato. Finito.
I want it said of me by those who knew me best, that I always plucked a thistle and planted a flower where I thought a flower would grow.
I can observe the game theory is applied very much in economics. Generally, it would be wise to get into the mathematics as much as seems reasonable because the economists who use more mathematics are somehow more respected than those who use less. That’s the trend.
Having children showed me a whole different kind of love that I had never known. It was something that had always been missing. Complete love. I would die for them.
If I had a choice of educating my daughters or my sons because of opportunity constraints, I would choose to educate my daughters.
There is a strong tendency to get used to and accept very bad things that would be shocking if seen with fresh eyes.

I speak the truth not so much as I would, but as much as I dare, and I dare a little more as I grow older.
Whatever came to mind, whatever came to hand, I would read.
We shot ‘Breaking Bad‘ on film; we capture ‘Better Call Saul’ digitally. In the shooting of ‘Breaking Bad,’ we would have this steady, handheld, cinema verite sort of look, so we purposely went the opposite way with ‘Better Call Saul’ – locked in the cameras and made the movements smoother and more mechanical.
I have a long way to go as far as my acting career is concerned. Lots of milestones are to be achieved and dreams to be fulfilled. I would someday want to do playback singing, too, as I am a very passionate singer.
Politics is dirty. Politics is exciting. Politics is often very, very difficult and disappointing. And I really would rather the world would be a little more like it was when my dad was young, where you knew pretty much where people stood on the great moral issues.
It is not so important to be serious as it is to be serious about the important things. The monkey wears an expression of seriousness which would do credit to any college student, but the monkey is serious because he itches.
Money is not a motivating factor. Money doesn’t thrill me or make me play better because there are benefits to being wealthy. I’m just happy with a ball at my feet. My motivation comes from playing the game I love. If I wasn’t paid to be a professional footballer I would willingly play for nothing.
Security is, I would say, our top priority because for all the exciting things you will be able to do with computers – organizing your lives, staying in touch with people, being creative – if we don’t solve these security problems, then people will hold back.
I would encourage you to set really high goals. Set goals that, when you set them, you think they’re impossible. But then every day you can work towards them, and anything is possible, so keep working hard and follow your dreams.
We can start with housing, the sturdiest of footholds for economic mobility. A national affordable housing program would be an anti-poverty effort, human capital investment, community improvement plan, and public health initiative all rolled into one.
I haven’t slept for ten days, because that would be too long.
The next generation has always been and will be better than the previous one. If it is not, then the world would not be moving forward.
I would like to die on Mars. Just not on impact.
Where there’s water on Earth, you find life as we know it. So if you find water somewhere else, it becomes a remarkable draw to look closer to see if life of any kind is there, even if it’s bacterial, which would be extraordinary for the field of biology.
What great thing would you attempt if you knew you could not fail?
I don’t know if God exists, but it would be better for His reputation if He didn’t.
What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.
‘Changes in Latitudes’ began when I was looking at a photograph of a sea turtle swimming underwater. I had such a strong feeling for the beauty of this ancient creature, at home in the sea. On the spot, I wanted to swim with that turtle. I began to imagine a character who would do just that.
When reflecting upon it today, that the Pearl Harbor attack should have succeeded in achieving surprise seems a blessing from Heaven. It was clear that a great American fleet had been concentrated in Pearl Harbor, and we supposed that the state of alert would be very high.
If I were two-faced, would I be wearing this one?
I knew I wanted to do music, but leaving such a successful career one would think I’d kind of shot myself in the foot. I knew I made the right decision, and at the end of the day it’s up to me to get where I want to go, but it’s a lot to take on.
Sabotage did not involve loss of life, and it offered the best hope for future race relations. Bitterness would be kept to a minimum and, if the policy bore fruit, democratic government could become a reality.
If everyone would look for that uniqueness then we would have a very colorful world.
Being surrounded by love and people that care about your heart is the dream. That’s what I would like on my last day.

For my own part, I would rather excel in knowledge of the highest secrets of philosophy than in arms.
Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word happy would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness. It is far better take things as they come along with patience and equanimity.

The game of golf would lose a great deal if croquet mallets and billiard cues were allowed on the putting green.
If I were again beginning my studies, I would follow the advice of Plato and start with mathematics.
I’m obsessed with insects, particularly insect flight. I think the evolution of insect flight is perhaps one of the most important events in the history of life. Without insects, there’d be no flowering plants. Without flowering plants, there would be no clever, fruit-eating primates giving TED Talks.
The word ‘happy’ would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness.
I always play women I would date.
Growing up, my grandmother did not want worldly music in the house. Then when I went out to California, I started listening to Spanish music, mostly Mexican music. But were I in Egypt, I would listen to the music of the people, or if I was in Italy, I’d listen to Italian music.
As we grow, we learn to handle situations differently than we normally would.
Being a housewife and a mother is the biggest job in the world, but if it doesn’t interest you, don’t do it – I would have made a terrible mother.

If suffering brings wisdom, I would wish to be less wise.
I would be married, but I’d have no wife, I would be married to a single life.
I gave myself permission to feel and experience all of my emotions. In order to do that, I had to stop being afraid to feel. In order to do that, I taught myself to believe that no matter what I felt or what happened when I felt it, I would be okay.
The sun, the moon and the stars would have disappeared long ago… had they happened to be within the reach of predatory human hands.
If my critics saw me walking over the Thames they would say it was because I couldn’t swim.
You take people as far as they will go, not as far as you would like them to go.
Sponges grow in the ocean. That just kills me. I wonder how much deeper the ocean would be if that didn’t happen.

The developing world is full of entrepreneurs and visionaries, who with access to education, equity and credit would play a key role in developing the economic situations in their countries.
No one would remember the Good Samaritan if he’d only had good intentions; he had money as well.
I would describe my style as refreshing.
We have all a better guide in ourselves, if we would attend to it, than any other person can be.
I would describe my style as comfortable and casual.
If I had learned education I would not have had time to learn anything else.
I was an only child and I had a mother and father who were just – there wasn’t a straight man in the house, and I mean that in a very nice way. They were fun, and we would laugh a lot.
Sleep is good, death is better; but of course, the best thing would to have never been born at all.
It would appear that we have reached the limits of what it is possible to achieve with computer technology, although one should be careful with such statements, as they tend to sound pretty silly in 5 years.
My doctor told me I would never walk again. My mother told me I would. I believed my mother.
If everything was perfect, you would never learn and you would never grow.
I would say to always follow your dream. And dream big because my whole career, including any of the things that I’ve accomplished, I never thought in a million years that I would be here. So it just proves that once you believe in yourself, and you put your mind to something, you can do it.
A drop of water, if it could write out its own history, would explain the universe to us.
What would be left of our tragedies if an insect were to present us his?
I will respect anyone who thinks differently, but I know what I have in my heart and only God can judge me. If everybody took care of their own lives only we would have less prejudice in this world.
I believe in compulsory cannibalism. If people were forced to eat what they killed, there would be no more wars.
I don’t believe in an afterlife, so I don’t have to spend my whole life fearing hell, or fearing heaven even more. For whatever the tortures of hell, I think the boredom of heaven would be even worse.
I feel more like I’m a person who has so much to offer in different capacities that it would be a danger for me not to give myself a chance to spread my wings in all different directions.
If I could teach people to be grateful, we could have an amazing world where negativity could not grow and foster, and children would have a smile on their face.
I would like my architecture to inspire people to use their own resources, to move into the future.

I wish people would love everybody else the way they love me. It would be a better world.
The good Lord didn’t see fit to put oil and gas only where there are democratically elected regimes friendly to the United States. Occasionally we have to operate in places where, all considered, one would not normally choose to go. But we go where the business is.
I never thought I’d live to see the day that an American administration would denounce the state of Israel for rebuilding Jerusalem.
People say ‘dream big,’ that’s kind of one of those motivational sayings, but I would dream hard, meaning I just wanted it so badly, I could feel it.
So long as the universe had a beginning, we could suppose it had a creator. But if the universe is really completely self-contained, having no boundary or edge, it would have neither beginning nor end: it would simply be. What place, then, for a creator?
I could prove God statistically. Take the human body alone – the chances that all the functions of an individual would just happen is a statistical monstrosity.
If I were to be Miss Universe, I will use my voice to influence the youth and I would raise awareness to certain causes like HIV awareness that is timely and relevant to my country which is the Philippines.
If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.
