Truth without enthusiasm, morality without emotion, ritual without soul, make for a Church without power.” ~ Samuel Chadwick

  10. “I don’t think my playing style has really changed over the years; it’s just gotten better. I can hear the improvement in comparing older records and later records.

It also has to do with ideas – learning how to edit your ideas and being better able to follow ideas out to a logical conclusion.” ~ Gary Bartz
  11. “There were times when it appeared to Dorian Gray that the whole of history was merely the record of his own life, not as he had lived it in act and circumstand, but as his imagination had created it for him, as it had been in his brain and in his passions.

It seemed to him that in some mysterious way their lives had been his own.” ~ Oscar Wilde

Eisenhower
  15. “Journalism is not easy. It’s the first rough draft. I don’t think you need to wait around until you have the definitive thing. You record what’s there; don’t delude yourself that this is the ultimate historical view.” ~ Harold Evans
  16. “The worthiness of any cause is not measured by its clean record, but by its readiness to see the blots when they are pointed out, and to change its mind.” ~ Aldo Leopold

  17. “I want incremental improvements. There’s the record of all the revolutionary and violent change and extremism in general – it’s dreadful.” ~ Martin Amis

And with records, the whole history of music is open to everyone who wants to hear it.” ~ Jerry Garcia
  19. “I’ve been critical of Hillary Clinton and [Barack] Obama, for sure. But John McCain had a proven record as a senator. He also ran for president [in 2016]. But he got a lot of stuff done while he was a United States senator and still does.” ~ Jeb Bush
  20. “I believe that I have the executive experience and the ideas and the proven record to fix things.” ~ Jeb Bush

  21. “I focus most of my attention on Hillary Clinton and her disastrous policies. I mean, there’s a real danger in this election.

I was sorta listening to the Beatles and stuff the whole time since I was about ten anyway, then I started getting into Kiss and David Bowie at the same time” ~ Bernard Fanning
  26. “The relationship with actor and director is probably closer to theater, in that, when we record the dialogue, there is very little in the way of the creative collaboration – no cameras, lighting or even locations. Then, once we record, the post process is very similar to the post flow in filmmaking – editing, sound design, mixing, etc. At the end of the day, it’s all about storytelling and honing in on a tone by developing a rhythm and structure that suits the storytelling.” ~ Glenn McQuaid
  27. “We usually start by asking the collaborators to submit a couple of ideas.

  29. “Every time I try to disown that concept for myself, which is a really healthy perspective, they bring it back all the time.

That takes away all the tension and the expectation. I just want to try to do something interesting.” ~ Gavin Rossdale
  30. “If you view computer designers as artists, they’re really into more of an art form that can be mass-produced, like records, or like prints, than they are into fine arts. They want something where they can express themselves to a large number of people through their medium, and their medium is technology and manufacturing.” ~ Steve Jobs
  31. “Now when an American has an idea, he directly seeks a second American to share it. If there be three, they elect a president and two secretaries.

  32. “I panic every time I put out a record. I think every artist does.” ~ Madonna Ciccone

  33. “U.S. domestic drug policy does not carry out its stated goals, and policymakers are well aware of that. If it isn’t about reducing substance abuse, what is it about?

  34. “It’s born of sheer laziness. My signature dishes are salads, hamburgers and popcorn. That’s not the kind of stuff that gets you an entry in the distinguished book of culinary records. Being known for great soufflĂ© is one thing but a good hamburger? What would they say? “Yeah, he really knew how to put the cheese on.”” ~ Paul Newman
  35. “Just because somebody hears something you say, or reads something that you write, doesn’t mean you’ve reached them. With reading comprehension being what it is in the U.

  38. “Disaster is rarely as pervasive as it seems from recorded accounts. The fact of being on the record makes it appear continuous and ubiquitous whereas it is more likely to have been sporadic both in time and place.” ~ Barbara Tuchman
  39. “I didn’t feel the need for anonymous affection, for people in the dark applauding. To me, it would be like writing a novel and then getting up every night and reading your novel. Everything I did is on the record and, if you want to hear it, just listen to the record.” ~ Tom Lehrer
  40. “Whether I’m making my own record, or playing a guitar part, I want what I do to have an impact.” ~ Vince Gill

  41. “I am running against no one. I’d like to be President. I think my experience and my record are greater than any other candidate or any other of the unannounced candidates.

  42. “I come from a very wiry and long-lived race. Some of my ancestors have been centenarians, and one of them lived 129 years. I am determined to keep up the record and please myself with prospects of great promise. Then again, nature has given me a vivid imagination.” ~ Nikola Tesla
  43. “I recently realized that Television has influenced a lot of English bands. Echo and the Bunnymen, U2, Teardrop Explodes – it’s obvious what they’ve listened to and what they’re going for.

  46. “I can’t remember ever being really bored. I find life very interesting, actually. I think some other musicians are always looking for something to give them an idea, but I find I have to reject 90 percent of my ideas because they don’t live up to some self-imposed standard. That’s also why I don’t make a record once a year. I throw so many things out, and I have to have something to say.” ~ Tom Verlaine , Life record quotes
  47. “Badfinger was pretty good. It was a very sad story, though, because the guy, he ended up killing himself, Pete Ham, who was a lovely fellow, he was a good guitar player and a great singer, he wrote, the most famous tune I would imagine is “Without You”, you know the Harry Nilsson record.” ~ George Harrison
  48. “I really don’t feel as connected to Heaven as I do to the ones where I was there from start to finish. And on this record I was there for every moment.” ~ Hamilton Leithauser

  49. “I think Badfinger was the epitome of that type of music before the power-pop term was coined. ‘No Matter What” is always gonna be a great song on the radio. There are probably two or three others off their records that are as cool like ‘Day After Day’.” ~ Robin Zander
  50. “For all of my life, I’ve had this one song in my head, and I’m still trying to write it. I’m still trying to get that song out. I’m getting closer, every record I get a little bit closer to saying it the way I want to say it.” ~ Torquil Campbell
  51. “I was writing music when we finished the last Walkmen record, Heaven, and a few of these songs may have even been started before Heaven was done. With The Walkmen, we all wrote a lot of stuff alone, but then we’d start collaborating with each other.” ~ Hamilton Leithauser
  52. “A gay murder movie is never going to be, like, breaking box office records.” ~ Daniel Radcliffe

  53. “I felt like I could get away with calling it Black Hours. That could easily be the most depressing record ever written, but because there is this sense of fun throughout the whole thing I felt like I could get away with it. Like “5 A.M.”; that song’s in a minor key and I’m just wailing away and it could have been just wallowing depression, but it’s not.” ~ Hamilton Leithauser
  54. “There’s a whole gamut of things to do with film music that don’t apply when you’re making a record or if you’re writing a concert piece or something.” ~ Henry Jackman
  55. “The movie industry places such importance on first-week numbers-which means what to people, I don’t know. It’s very strange. They hope to sell tons of records the first week, and then what?” ~ Brendan Benson

That was the case with figures like Pele, Diego Maradona and Zinedine Zidane. With Spain, Iniesta has shown that he is among the best players of all time and that’s why I rate him higher than Messi or Ronaldo. Even though the latter two have incredible scoring records for their clubs, they still haven’t won anything with Argentina or Portugal respectively.” ~ Boris Becker
