Duane Witter

I'm not going to look at this as being the most critical game of my life, but it's important like the other ones were. Coach knows who I am and what I bring. At the end of the day, if I'm someone that he wants around, then that's what he chooses.

Imparting knowledge is only lighting other men's candles at our lamp without depriving ourselves of any flame.

Jane Porter

This is a lot different then the newspaper business. However as a community helper I feel that this is a calling instead of a job. Other directors including myself don't expect to be glorified for the work we do with Red Cross.

Darren Clarke

The team showed a huge amount of character and heart out there. Maybe they wouldn't have handled it at other times.

Graham Henry

Their keeper was the difference in the game. He stood on his head and did stuff that I haven't seen other keepers do. Even when he was jumping out of the way, the ball seemed to hit him.

Troy Dayak

Real love is the love that sometimes arises after sensual pleasure: if it does, it is immortal; the other kind inevitably goes stale, for it lies in mere fantasy.

Jayme Wilson

The students in Putnam County and who come here from other areas are so enthusiastic about learning.

Keion Carpenter

In the downturn I foresee, no market will be immune. But New York will weather the decline better than other markets.

Doug Kass

I think it's very important to elevate that commission to a higher standard and to have it be able to work with all facets of government. If it's put into a department, there won't be the buy-in of the other areas of government.

Sen. Lee Constantine

I missed two really good opportunities before that one. It was good, but it wasn't my goal. It was the team's goal. They were so focused on getting me one. I had no other choice. Kate could have scored it, but she passed it to me.

Morgan Wallace

If he gets off, it will be a huge moral victory ... not just for him, but for all the other groups pushing a hard-line agenda. The ripple effect will be tremendous.

Men and women chasing each other is what makes the human race.

Mark Beltaire

The first time I heard his name, I stopped listening to all the things about the other candidates.

Anna Quindlen
