It was around the summer of 1982 when the drug problem really impacted. It became a lifestyle rather than a recreation. When you start lying and stealing, you cannot con yourself you're in control any more.
I guess I'm quite used to not being understood rather than being understood.
One has a responsibility to clean up one's space and make it livable as far as one's own resources go. That includes not only material resources, but psychological resources: the commitment of time and a portion of your mind to something when you'd rather be doing something else.
I would rather be right than President.
I will never work merely to make a reputation for myself, to be popular for appearances rather than for what I am. My task is to lead my country through service.
King Hussein I
'Sherlock' fans are, by and large, an intelligent breed, so they've gone through my back catalogue and got what I've done, why and how I've done it. There is some obsessive behaviour, but I worry for them rather than me.
The giant white cube is now impeding rather than enhancing the rhythms of art. It preprograms a viewer's journey, shifts the emphasis from process to product, and lacks individuality and openness. It's not that art should be seen only in rutty bombed-out environments, but it should seem alive.
I'd rather rot on my own floor than be found by a bunch of bingo players in a nursing home.
I would rather exercise than read a newspaper.
Most of the robots being developed for home use are functional in design - Gecko's homecare robot looks rather like the Star Wars robot R2-D2. Honda and Sony are designing robots that look more like the same movie's 'android' C-3PO.
I would rather be loved than have money and all that other stuff.
Feminists bore me to death. I follow my instinct and if that supports young girls in any way, great. But I'd rather they saw it more as a lesson about following their own instincts rather than imitating somebody.
I would rather be poor in a cottage full of books than a king without the desire to read.
Thomas Babington Macaulay
I see a bright future for the biotechnology industry when it follows the path of the computer industry, the path that von Neumann failed to foresee, becoming small and domesticated rather than big and centralized.
I've always believed the greater danger is not aiming too high, but too low, settling for a bogey rather than shooting for an eagle.
Reverie is not a mind vacuum. It is rather the gift of an hour which knows the plenitude of the soul.
We will grieve not, rather find strength in what remains behind. In the faith that looks through death, in years that bring the philosophic mind.
I appreciate the sentiment that I am a popular woman in computer gaming circles; but I prefer being thought of as a computer game designer rather than a woman computer game designer. I don't put myself into gender mode when designing a game.
To be truly radical is to make hope possible rather than despair convincing.
But our leaders of today have decided it's more important to be popular, to say and do what's easy, and say yes rather than to say no, when no is what is required.
Many original occupiers believe the political system has become so corrupt that even participating in it, engaging with it, corrupts the movement. I understand what they are saying. But often, change does come more quickly from the inside rather than the outside. My advice: try both. But don't try violence.
The race problem in the United States is the type of unpleasant problem which we would rather do without but which refuses to be buried.
Charles Hamilton Houston
I'd rather send out a mass email then hang posters all over the place.
Much of the debate over global warming is predicated on fear, rather than science.
I'm not concentrated or concerned with any other factors rather than just being able to do the best job that I can.
Benigno Aquino III
C. S. Lewis
Martin Luther King, Jr.
