And I argued with that intelligence estimate and I think it is a responsibility of policymakers to use their best judgment on the basis of the intelligence they’ve received.

– Frank Carlucci


I can remember when I was National Security Adviser, the intelligence community told us… they put out an intelligence report saying that Iran would never back off from attacks on shipping in the Gulf if we use force.

– Frank Carlucci


Intelligence is not a science.

– Frank Carlucci


My understanding is that what was provided was general order of battle information, not operational intelligence. I certainly have no knowledge of US participation in preparing battle and strike packages and doubt strongly that that occurred.

– Frank Carlucci


Policymakers have to make judgments based on the best intelligence they get.

Putin has a lot at stake here and restoring the relationship with the United States, and there are already signs as Sandy mentioned that he’s moving in the right direction to begin to ascertain that their trade with Iran is not used for the production of nuclear weapons.

Fred Thompson – 4 Quotes

 

4 Quotes by Fred Thompson

 

Let’s not overlook, though, what we do know about the campaign finance scandal, and the fact the Chinese were involved in our presidential campaign and our congressional campaigns.

– Fred Thompson


For example, lead paint in old houses can be a greater threat to children’s health than lead that may be under some industrial site where there are no children.

– Fred Thompson


Clearly, the Chinese know that we want a good relationship with them.

– Fred Thompson


So China will be having to make some choices as to whose side it wants to be on. Hopefully, this will be the beginning of a major improvement in our relationship with them, if they choose correctly.

– Fred Thompson

Franka Potente – 4 Quotes

 

4 Quotes by Franka Potente

 

I think working with Johnny Depp was very intimidating. It was my fault though. I mean he’s a total cool nice, nice guy, but I was just so, I don’t know, overpowered by his presence. Like he’s a very mystic person. He’s older so I never really warmed up around him. I was so stiff.

– Franka Potente


I think actors are divided into two groups: one that wants to be an actor to become famous and rich, and the other that wants to be an actor because they have to be. I’m more in the second group.

– Franka Potente


I’ve published one book before, and now I’m writing a book of essays and stories about life in Tokyo. And I have one book coming out in May in Germany, about fitness.

Faith Evans – 4 Quotes

 

4 Quotes by Faith Evans

 

Faith is not a sense, nor sight, nor reason, but taking God at His work.

– Faith Evans


I guess you kind of got to realize that once you in a marriage, whatever it is, you gotta deal with it. Not necessarily that you got to accept it, but you have to deal with it and try your best to make it work for you, for the both of you.

– Faith Evans


People used to say my son looked like a Mexican Biggie. And when he was first born, memories of Biggie… you know, we didn’t always have the greatest days. For at least half the length of our marriage we were separated, so everyday was definitely not a good day.

– Faith Evans


I’m really an inner spirit that only makes itself known through the music. A lot of people think I’m an introvert, or quiet and moody. I’ve even heard some people say that there’s a certain mystery or darkness about me. I’m not that way. I’m just really into what I do.

– Faith Evans



Fred Upton – 10 Quotes

 

10 Quotes by Fred Upton

 

Our work on light bulbs wasn’t an arbitrary mandate. We didn’t just pick a standard out of the air, or look for a catchy sounding standard like 25 by 2025 not based in science or feasibility. Instead, we worked with both industry and environmental groups to come up with a standard that made sense and was doable.

– Fred Upton


Without international participation, jobs and emissions will simply shift overseas to countries that require few, if any, environmental protections, harming the global environment as well as the U.S. economy.

– Fred Upton


Americans want and deserve a broad array of health insurance choices so they can identify those that best fit their own individual or family needs. These choices expand when we allow free enterprise to foster innovation, not smother it with taxes and one-size fits all ideology.

– Fred Upton


Giving governors more leeway in administering health care could represent a small, positive development in the ongoing saga of Obamacare. Unfortunately, instead of choosing flexibility, President Obama and his left-leaning advisers always default to rigid ‘Washington knows best’ answers.

– Fred Upton


I know the exploding cost of health care is at the root of our long-term fiscal challenges.

– Fred Upton


Obamacare is a seriously flawed law that makes health care coverage less affordable, costs taxpayers more than advertised and fails to deliver on most of its other grand promises.

– Fred Upton


Originally created to serve the poorest and sickest among us, the Medicaid program has grown dramatically but still doesn’t include the kind of flexibility that states need to provide better health care for the poor and disadvantaged.

– Fred Upton


Prior to passage of Obamacare, Americans spoke out against the individual mandate they didn’t want to change the health care they had they didn’t want a 3,000-page bill that empowered 15 Washington bureaucrats to decide the future of the doctor-patient relationship.

– Fred Upton


The national debate on health care once centered on improving access to quality care, yet the effect of Obamacare will be the exact opposite, resulting in the shameful degradation of care for the neediest individuals.

– Fred Upton


Under President Obama’s new health care law, Medicaid will become a very different health coverage program than first envisioned.

– Fred Upton

Flatter not thyself in thy faith in God if thou hast not charity for thy neighbor.

Has fortune dealt you some bad cards. Then let wisdom make you a good gamester.

– Flannery O’Connor


Everywhere I go, I’m asked if I think the universities stifle writers. My opinion is that they don’t stifle enough of them. There’s many a best seller that could have been prevented by a good teacher.

When a book leaves your hands, it belongs to God. He may use it to save a few souls or to try a few others, but I think that for the writer to worry is to take over God’s business.

I preach there are all kinds of truth, your truth and somebody else’s. But behind all of them there is only one truth and that is that there’s no truth.

Friedrich August von Hayek – 12 Quotes

 

12 Quotes by Friedrich August von Hayek

 

A claim for equality of material position can be met only by a government with totalitarian powers.

– Friedrich August von Hayek


Even the striving for equality by means of a directed economy can result only in an officially enforced inequality – an authoritarian determination of the status of each individual in the new hierarchical order.

– Friedrich August von Hayek


Freedom granted only when it is known beforehand that its effects will be beneficial is not freedom.

– Friedrich August von Hayek


Perhaps the fact that we have seen millions voting themselves into complete dependence on a tyrant has made our generation understand that to choose one’s government is not necessarily to secure freedom.

– Friedrich August von Hayek


We must face the fact that the preservation of individual freedom is incompatible with a full satisfaction of our views of distributive justice.

– Friedrich August von Hayek


I do not think it is an exaggeration to say history is largely a history of inflation, usually inflations engineered by governments for the gain of governments.

– Friedrich August von Hayek


He will therefore have to use what knowledge he can achieve, not to shape the results as the craftsman shapes his handiwork, but rather to cultivate a growth by providing the appropriate environment, in the manner in which the gardener does this for his plants.

– Friedrich August von Hayek


To act on the belief that we possess the knowledge and the power which enable us to shape the processes of society entirely to our liking, knowledge which in fact we do not possess, is likely to make us do much harm.

– Friedrich August von Hayek


It seems to me that socialists today can preserve their position in academic economics merely by the pretense that the differences are entirely moral questions about which science cannot decide.

– Friedrich August von Hayek


This means that to entrust to science – or to deliberate control according to scientific principles – more than scientific method can achieve may have deplorable effects.

– Friedrich August von Hayek


If we wish to preserve a free society, it is essential that we recognize that the desirability of a particular object is not sufficient justification for the use of coercion.

– Friedrich August von Hayek


It is rather a problem of how to secure the best use of resources known to any of the members of society, for ends whose relative importance only those individuals know.

– Friedrich August von Hayek
