I believe that nothing is more important to our ability to effectively address our present than understanding the lessons learned from those who have come before us.
It's great that people get together and collaborate, talk about the facts and the analysis, all in the interest of having a great financial system.
I wouldn't change Buffy for anything and I wouldn't change the course in which she has evolved but it is nice to be able to do something that is a little different.
Sarah Michelle Gellar
It's necessary to start most work alone. But I'm tickled to death when I can pull somebody in or join someone, whether it's borrowing poetry or traveling with an associate.
I'm so happy to have been a part of that process and I would go straight back into the desert in a ton of chain mail for Ridley any day of the week. He's an amazing director and I can't wait to see the long version.
I've been taking batting practice in my barn where nobody can see me, so I may be better than anyone thinks.
I'm a good son, a good father, a good husband - I've been married to the same woman for 30 years. I'm a good friend. I finished college, I have my education, I donate money anonymously. So when people criticize the kind of characters that I play on screen, I go, 'You know, that's part of history.'

Ronnie James Dio
I'm quite into the idea of engineering being beautiful.
Please accept my resignation. I don't care to belong to any club that will have me as a member.
I have forgotten my rave reviews and memorized my vicious ones - like most writers.
I'm very impatient, so I was like, 'I want to be able to do whatever I want now.' But even the biggest stars - you look back and they weren't overnight.
Fame - anyone who says he doesn't like it is crazy.
It was such a leap in my career when 'Truman Show' came along. It's always been a long process for me insofar as recognition goes, but that's OK because you appreciate it when it comes.
My mother was keen that I complete my graduation and never ever wanted me to be in the movies, as my father had made five films that lost money. One of the films he made was 'Agneepath,' which was hugely hyped but underwhelming at the box office, and I remember that my dad had to sell my grandmother's flat to pay off the loan.
Other than my memory being a bit woolly and my knees being a bit creaky, I don't really think there's anything I can't do.
