Quotation by Elvis

elvis

A live concert to me is exciting because of all the electricity that is generated in the crowd and on stage. It’s my favorite part of the business – live concerts.

Memorable Quote Spoken by George H. W. Bush

George H W Bush

Clearly, no longer can a dictator count on East~West confrontation to stymie concerted United Nations action against aggression. A new partnership of nations has begun. And we stand today at a unique and extraordinary moment. The crisis in the Persian Gulf, as grave as it is, also offers a rare opportunity to move toward an historic period of cooperation. Out of these troubled times, our fifth objective – - a new world order – - can emerge: a new era, freer from the threat of terror, stronger in the pursuit of justice, and more secure in the quest for peace. An era in which the nations of the world, east and west, north and south, can prosper and live in harmony.

George H. W. Bush

Famed Feelings of John Lennon

John Lennon

It can never be again! Everyone always talks about a good thing coming to an end, as if life was over. But I’ll be 40 when this interview comes out. Paul is 38. Elton John, Bob Dylan we’re all relatively young people. The game isn’t over yet. Everyone talks in terms of the last record or the last Beatle concert but, God willing, there are another 40 years of productivity to go. I’m not judging whether I Am The Walrus is better or worse than I’magine. It is for others to judge. I am doing it. I do. I don’t stand back and judge I do.

John Lennon on talk of a Beatles reunion

Worth Repeating Words Said by John Lennon

John Lennon

Where do people get off saying the Beatles should give $200,000,000 to South America? You know, America has poured billions into places like that. It doesn’t mean a damn thing. After they’ve eaten that meal, then what? It lasts for only a day. After the $200,000,000 is gone, then what? It goes round and round in circles. You can pour money in forever. After Peru, then Harlem, then Britain. There is no one concert. We would have to dedicate the rest of our lives to one world concert tour, and I’m not ready for it. Not in this lifetime, anyway.

Extraordinary Quotation Said by Madonna

Madonna

I laugh at myself. I don’t take myself completely seriously. I think that’s another quality that people have to hold on to… you have to laugh, especially at yourself. I do it in most of the things I do, and most of the videos that I make and most of my performances. Even in my concerts there are so many moments when I just stood still and laughed at myself.

Madonna

Ayn Rand Constitution Words

Ayn-Rand

Today, when a concerted effort is made to obliterate this point, it cannot be repeated too often that the Constitution is a limitation on the government, not on private individualsthat it does not prescribe the conduct of private individuals, only the conduct of the governmentthat it is not a charter for government power, but a charter of the citizen’s protection against the government.
