  10. “On “[Total] Recall” also [sets were extraordinary], but this was next-level. They built two or three blocks of midtown Manhattan in 1926 and it was inhabited with 400 extras and 24 Model Ts and a train system and all that kind of nonsense. It was madness. You would walk into shops and they would have the goods from that period, it was just huge.” ~ Colin Farrell
  11. “If you look at the statistics of fratricide or intra-sibling homicide, it’s extremely rare. And look at Burke [Ramsey] and JonBenet at the time of her murder. She was the powerhouse, the firecracker; she’s the dominant one, not him. I just don’t see it. And as I recall, John Ramsey passed a lie detector test. I can unequivocally say that Burke is not the killer nor do I think John Ramsey is the killer. Let’s leave it there.” ~ Nancy Grace

I’ve been accused of compassion, of altruism, of devotion to Christian, Hebrew, and Muslim ethic, but however desperate I am to claim ownership of a high ideal, I cannot. I wanted, I think, to acknowledge Luck; the chance of it, the benevolence of it in my life, and the brutality of it in the lives of others, made especially savage for children because they may not be allowed the good fortune of a lifetime to correct it.” ~ Paul Newman
  20. “Women tend to recall the details of an emotionally competent stimulus, using more of their left hemisphere to do the processing. Men tend to recall the gist aspects of an emotionally competent stimulus, using more of their right hemisphere to do the processing.” ~ John Medina

  23. “I admit that I do not recall the speeches of Comrades [Earl] Browder and [Samuel] Darcy. I do not even recall of what they spoke. It is possible that they said something of this nature.

  25. “I discovered [Joan of Arc] toward the age of ten or twelve when I went to France.

  30. “I think, to be honest, sort of emanated from the initial work of somebody else instead of SCLC. If you take Albany; I don’t know whether you recall how Albany got started.

One was Cordell Hull who was then in his teens – not Cordell Hull – Cordell Reagan, who came out of the Nashville movement, and Charles Sherrod, who came out of the Richmond, Virginia, movement.” ~ Ella Baker
  31. “Being born in ’31 was during the Depression and in my earlier youth World War II took place – so it was not the best of times, and yet I don’t recall ever having experiences that were a burden.” ~ Paul Smith

  34. “I went through elementary school being bullied and teased. I remember someone – I can’t recall his name, but I can see his face – who decided on the school bus, when I was ten or eleven, to call me “Percy.” That was somehow supposed to connect to the fact that I wasn’t very athletic. I was, in fact, also not very coordinated. I was not very masculine, by the standards of ten-year-olds. I remember being on the school bus and everyone chanting, “Percy! Percy! Percy!” at me.” ~ Andrew Solomon

  37. “There is nothing in England that exercises a more delightful spell over my imagination than the lingerings of the holiday customs and rural games of former times. They recall the pictures my fancy used to draw in the May morning of life, when as yet I only knew the world through books, and believed it to be all that poets had painted it; and they bring with them the flavor of those honest days of yore, in which, perhaps with equal fallacy, I am apt to think the world was more home-bred, social, and joyous than at present.” ~ Washington Irving
  38. “You go to a lot of small communities in rural Alberta and you’ll find a degree of diversity that probably hasn’t existed in terms of immigration for a century – you’ll find the Filipino grocery store, and the African Pentecostal church and maybe a mosque. Albertans are pro-immigration; they’re also pro-integration. In my years in this province I cannot recall more than a handful of expressions of xenophobia or nativism that I’ve encountered. It’s the land of new beginnings and fresh starts – it is rare Albertans who trace their roots here back more than a generation or two.” ~ Jason Kenney
  39. “I have recall. I don’t know why or how. I had a guy once who said he played against me in novice [league, for kids under nine], for the Detroit Lasers.

  41. “Looking back through the mists of time, I recall some distinctly religious experiences in my teens–when I was only fourteen years old to be precise. These experiences opened my mind to the idea of a Creator and that caring for other living things was a Christian duty. My parents were not strongly religious at the time and when I announced at that youthful age that I wanted to be a priest, it not unnaturally provoked some incredulity, even mirth. In the same year, I became a vegetarian, which–for family and friends–was even more vexing.” ~ Andrew Linzey
  42. “Were it not for gravity one man might hurl another by a puff of his breath into the depths of space, beyond recall for all eternity.” ~ Roger Joseph Boscovich
  43. “Clinton’s team used a technology called BleachBit, which is basically acid, and this is going to acid wash her emails. Who would do this? She claims she couldn’t recall important information on 39 separate and different occasions. She can’t even remember whether she has trained in the use of classified information. And she said she didn’t know the letter C means “confidential” or at least “classified.” If she can’t remember such crucial events and information, honestly, she’s totally unfit to be our commander-in-chief, totally unfit.” ~ Donald Trump
  44. “When ambitious desires arise in thy heart, recall the days of extremity thou have passed through. Forbearance is the root of all quietness and assurance forever.” ~ Ieyasu Tokugawa

  46. “I do think the whole question of judicial accountability is a complicated one. On the one hand, you want to encourage judicial independence. And it’s always, I think, problematic when an unpopular decision triggers a recall election. Because it sends a disempowering message to judges. On the other hand, it’s the only way that voters have to rein in someone whose views are really so out of the mainstream of public opinion that they jeopardize the legitimacy of the judicial process.” ~ Deborah Rhode
  47. “Growing up too fast and I do recall, Wishin’ time would stop right in it’s tracks.” ~ Kenny Chesney

I would read them together with you, as many as I can, before I die -” ~ Cassandra Clare
  50. “The art of remembering is the art of thinking. When we wish to fix a new thing in either our own mind or a pupil’s, our conscious effort should not be so much to impress and retain it as to connect it with something else already there. The connecting is the thinking; and, if we attend clearly to the connection, the connected thing will certainly be likely to remain within recall.” ~ William James
  51. “One has to live in the present. Whatever is past is gone beyond recall; whatever is future remains beyond one’s reach, until it becomes present. Remembering the past and giving thought to the future are important, but only to the extent that they help one deal with the present.” ~ S. N. Goenka

  58. “The powered flight took a total of about eight and a half minutes. It seemed to me it had gone by in a lash. We had gone from sitting still on the launch pad at the Kennedy Space Center to traveling at 17,500 miles an hour in that eight and a half minutes. It is still mind-boggling to me. I recall making some statement on the air-to-ground radio for the benefit of my fellow astronauts, who had also been in the program a long time, that it was well worth the wait.” ~ Robert Crippen
  59. “To pull the metal splinter from my palm my father recited a story in a low voice. I watched his lovely face and not the blade. Before the story ended, he’d removed the iron sliver I thought I’d die from. I can’t remember the tale, but hear his voice still, a well of dark water, a prayer. And I recall his hands, two measures of tenderness he laid against my face.” ~ Li-Young Lee

  63. “It doesn’t prove anything except that you’re bullying us. Which, as I recall, is a sign of cowardice.” ~ Veronica Roth

  64. “There are those who, while reading a book, recall, compare, conjure up emotions from other, previous readings. This is one of the most delicate forms of adultery.” ~ Ezequiel Martinez Estrada
  65. “One way to recollect the mind easily in the time of prayer, and preserve it more in tranquillity, is not to let it wander too far at other times. You should keep it strictly in the presence of God; and being accustomed to think of Him often, you will find it easy to keep your mind calm in the time of prayer, or at least to recall it from its wanderings.” ~ Brother Lawrence
