Oh, I'm not a true genius. I'm a near genius. I would say I'm a short genius. I'd rather be tall and normal than a short genius.
It's like those high-school yearbook photos that everyone would rather not see: Oh my God, look at that mullet hair. I have those photos too, but for me, they're, like, entire movies. And they show them on cable.
I can't prove that God doesn't exist, but I'd much rather live in a universe without one.
Lawrence M. Krauss
I'd much rather have 15 people arguing about something than 15 people splitting into two camps, each side convinced it's right and not talking to the other.
I'm a big advocate of a work-for-pay setup rather than an allowance that isn't attached to chores - it's a great way to impart the value of money to your children.
Women are like dogs really. They love like dogs, a little insistently. And they like to fetch and carry and come back wistfully after hard words, and learn rather easily to carry a basket.
Mary Roberts Rinehart
Most wars are not fought over shortages of resources such as food and water, but rather over conquest, revenge, and ideology.
An unsophisticated forecaster uses statistics as a drunken man uses lamp-posts - for support rather than for illumination.
Think how different human societies would be if they were based on love rather than justice. But no such societies have ever existed on earth.
I'm rather inclined to liking people.
Aung San Suu Kyi
We have domesticated God's transcendence. We often learn about God at about the same time as we are learning about Santa Claus; but our ideas about Santa Claus change, mature and become more nuanced, whereas our ideas of God can remain at a rather infantile level.
We don't have a state, neither in Gaza nor in the West Bank. Gaza is under siege and the West Bank is occupied. What we have in the Gaza Strip is not a state, but rather a regime of an elected government. A Palestinian state will not be created at this time except in the territories of 1967.
In the face of patriarchy, it is a brave act indeed for both men and women to embrace, rather than shame or attempt to eradicate, the feminine.
I have been celibate for about six or seven months, I think. I would rather just make out and kiss someone instead of sex. I'm single. I said I would be single for a year and I am.
I am a friend of the working man, and I would rather be his friend, than be one.
This is a perverse thing, personally, but I would rather be in the cycle where people are underestimating us. It gives us latitude to go out and make big bets that excite and amaze people.
I don't have any fear of intimacy, but rather thrive on it, which is rare in a public person.
When I said a few weeks ago that our people would eat cooking oil and olives if necessary, I didn't mean that there really would be only oil and olives. What I meant was that our people have the necessary patience to endure the current difficult situation. Palestinians would rather do without certain food items than their national rights.
I teach a Bible study for homeless guys in downtown Atlanta every week. Been doing it for years. That's the guys I'd rather go talk to. I'd rather take my act outside the church.
Me, I'd prefer to have a good reputation rather than getting press for being scandalous, getting drunk in public, staying out late and so on.
I do give books as gifts sometimes, when people would rather have one than a new Ferrari.
I'd rather be able to face myself in the bathroom mirror than be rich and famous.
When I talked to him on the phone yesterday. I called him George rather than Mr. Vice President. But, in public, it's Mr. Vice President, because that is who he is.
I would rather write or record something great and have it overlooked than do mediocre work and have it be popular.
She had a penetrating sort of laugh. Rather like a train going into a tunnel.
P. G. Wodehouse
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
C. S. Lewis
