While our country has made great strides in breaking
by Adam Schiff

we are not yet the beautiful symphony of brotherhood of Dr. King's dream.
- Adam Schiff

America has a critical role to play as the most powerful
member of the world community.
- Adam Schiff

other nations as we would have them act towards America.
- Adam Schiff

The war in Iraq has been extremely divisive here at home,
and has also divided the world community.
- Adam Schiff

Our failure to find weapons of mass destruction in
Iraq thus far has been deeply troubling,
and our intelligence-gathering process needs thorough
and unbiased investigation.
- Adam Schiff

Unquestionably, the world is better off without Saddam.
- Adam Schiff

So let us call genocide, genocide.
Let us not minimize the deliberate murder of 1.5 million people.
Let us have a moral victory that can shine as a light to all nations.
- Adam Schiff

It is now conventional wisdom that Americans do not
care why we went to war in Iraq,
that it is enough that the world is better off without Saddam Hussein.
- Adam Schiff

The prompt assimilation of that intelligence will be
essential if we are to avoid another September 11th.
- Adam Schiff

We must either reduce the number of our engagements
or increase the number of our troops.
- Adam Schiff

The new century has brought on its own terrible dangers,
which although not reaching the apocalyptic potential of the Cold War,
still have the capacity to shake our world.
- Adam Schiff

But even race-neutral policies and recruitment efforts
designed to achieve greater diversity are,
in the end, not race neutral.
- Adam Schiff

The legacy of the Armenian Genocide is woven into the fabric of America.
- Adam Schiff

Each year on the anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.'s birth,
America has the opportunity to reflect on our nation's
progress towards the realization of his dream.

Neither the University of Michigan nor its law school uses a quota system.
- Adam Schiff

At the very top state institutions, like UCLA,

however, the trend of downward minority enrollment
remains persistent and discouraging.
- Adam Schiff

Unless action is taken soon - unless we can display
the same vision of that earlier period -
we will lose the treasure of California's open space
and environmental beauty.
- Adam Schiff

But it is equally incontrovertible that if our intelligence
gathering process is seriously flawed,
we had better find out and find out fast if we are to avoid another Sept.
11.
- Adam Schiff

An America that inspires hope in its ideals must complement
an America that inspires awe in its strength.
- Adam Schiff

Notwithstanding these setbacks, the dream of a beautiful
American orchestra goes on,
and I share Dr. King's faith that each year we move
inexorably closer to a magnificent opening night.
- Adam Schiff

In fact, the converse is true: At a time when the United
States has been called on for a level of moral leadership,
vision and inspiration not seen since World War II,
we cannot afford to dissemble about crimes against humanity.
- Adam Schiff

Although every step must be taken to protect against
a chemical or biological attack in America,
our nation would survive the use of those weapons as
we did when anthrax was mailed to our Capitol and other targets.

If giving points to some students to achieve greater
diversity is a quota system in violation of the Constitution,
how can the awarding of points to the children of a
less diverse alumni be upheld?

even more problematic now,
when the world is at war with terrorism and the United
States cannot afford to offend the sensibility of our Turkish ally.

but while we are here we might as well dance.

Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans.

Where were you born?
Where is your home?
Where are you going?
What are you doing?
Think about these once in a while
and watch your answers change.
- Richard Bach

While they were saying among themselves
it cannot be done, it was done.
- Helen Keller

While you are proclaiming peace with your lips,
be careful to have it even more fully in your heart.
- St. Francis of Assisi

Carpe diem! Rejoice while you are alive; enjoy the day;
live life to the fullest;
make the most of what you have.
It is later than you think.
- Horace

Be more concerned with your character than your reputation,

life runs us in circles
while inscribing the real lessons
in a corner of the margin.

you can always choose to be happy.
Yes, you are that powerful.

while accepting gratefully whatever life offers me.

So long as we are loved by others,
I would almost say that we are indispensable;
and no man is useless while he has a friend.

Pay It Forward.
Gift future generations in proportion to your gratitude.
The nature of life is that we pay forward
our biological creation and nurture.
Our parents gift us with life and nurture,
and we gift our children with life and nurture.
While this much is essential to continued human existence,
choose to take "pay it forward" farther - much farther.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Every optimist moves along with progress and hastens it,
while every pessimist would keep the worlds at a standstill.
The consequence of pessimism in the life of a nation

Pessimism kills the instinct that
urges men to struggle against poverty,
ignorance and crime, and dries up
all the fountains of joy in the world.
- Helen Keller

We have a choice of how we view the obstacles on our life path.
One choice makes us slaves to circumstance,
while the other empowers us, and motivates us
to follow our dreams - and our happiness.

Guilt is about actions or behavior;
while shame is about the self.
- "Dr. Sanity"

I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true.
I am not bound to succeed,
but I am bound to live by the light that I have.
I must stand with anybody that stands right,
and stand with him while he is right,
and part with him when he goes wrong.
- Abraham Lincoln

If we want to direct our lives,
we must take control of our consistent actions.
It's not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives,
but what we do consistently.
- Anthony Robbins

There is danger that we lose sight of
what our friend is absolutely,
while considering what she is to us alone.
- Henry David Thoreau

It is easy enough to be pleasant
When life flows by like a song,
But the man worth while is the one who will smile
When everything goes dead wrong.
- Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Winning is not a sometime thing; it's an all time thing.
You don't win once in a while,
you don't do things right once in a while,
you do them right all the time.
Winning is habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.
- Vince Lombardi

However carefully we plan our future,
we are always climbing the steps to nowhere.
While it is important to our happiness
that we have an intent for our lives,
it is equally crucial to accept in advance
that we truly have no idea how our lives will turn out -
and that is good.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

While it is natural to feel some degree of
need for the approval of others, be careful.
If you find yourself unwilling to
take actions that others disapprove of,
you have lost control of your own life
and have given your destiny to others.
An excessive need-for-approval
is a sign of low self-esteem,
and in severe cases, a condition termed co-dependency.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Imagination is more important than knowledge.
For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand,
while imagination embraces the entire world,
and all there ever will be to know and understand.

While most managers spend their time attempting
to predict the future accurately -
and while that's valuable -
the best managers are able to generate a future
which was not going to happen otherwise -
that is, a future which was not predictable.
- Werner Erhard

Stand with anybody that stands right,
stand with him while he is right
and part with him when he goes wrong.
- Abraham Lincoln

While the laughter of joy is in
full harmony with our deeper life,
the laughter of amusement
should be kept apart from it.
The danger is too great of thus learning
to look at solemn things in a spirit of mockery,
and to seek in them opportunities for exercising wit.
- Lewis Carroll

In all circumstances I acknowledge this,
IN ALL THINGS AND ALL WAYS, I HAVE CHOICE.
My choice resides in my perspective.
While I certainly do not control climate and markets
and roadways and others, I do control myself
and my response to all those circumstances. I do indeed.
- Mary Anne Radmacher

Heroes act in spite of their fear,
while the rest of us act because of our fear.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

When you follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track
that has been there all the while waiting for you,
and the life you ought to be living is the one you are living.
When you can see that, you begin to meet people
who are in the field of your bliss,
and they open the doors to you.
I say, follow your bliss and don't be afraid,
and doors will open where you didn't know they were going to be.
If you follow your bliss,
doors will open for you that wouldn't have opened for anyone else.
- Joseph Campbell

The "stories" we choose to tell about our past
are never what a video camera would have recorded.
We can tell a sad story or a happy story,
and neither story is either
more accurate or "better" than the other story.
The difference is that one story causes us to suffer,
while the other brings us joy. I choose joy.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Falling out of love is very enlightening.
For a short while you see the world with new eyes.
- Iris Murdoch

Thoughts come clearly while one walks.
- Thomas Mann
