Shinichi Suzuki

I think the idea that Texas is going to somehow suffer because it's not becoming like Massachusetts is silly. Texas is attractive for many people for the reason that it is not like Northeastern states. Those kind of traditional moral beliefs that provide children with both a mom and a dad are the reason that people are attracted to Texas. If you destroy that image, it would hurt Texas.

Kelly Shackelford

Every European, every democratic person, has to condemn these people who wanted to interfere with an electoral campaign, producing suffering for hundreds of people, leaving families broken, without any objective.

Mary Schindler

They didn't suffer from any diseases or any genetic defects that would account for their stunted growth.

Vincent P. Sarubbi

Seeing Neil Entwistle accused of this awful crime gives us little comfort and, in fact, only adds to our enormous pain and suffering.

The betrayals to the family, to Neil's family, to our family (and) to our friends here and in the UK are unbearable.

Joseph Flaherty

Paul Laviolette

We're suffering from saturation, overkill. The market place is flooded by demand, and there are too many films, so everything gets watered down. Demand is the boss and everything bends to that will. Bigger and not necessarily better shows seem to be the order of the day. I can't watch most of them.

Ridley Scott

Strength is born in the deep silence of long-suffering hearts; not amid joy.

Sir Arthur Helps

Bart Stupak

Never suffer youth to be an excuse for inadequacy, nor age and fame to be an excuse for indolence.

Benjamin Haydon

To whom is the physician responsible? Is he responsible to the suffering human being that he is treating? To the occupant of the role? Or to the American public? And can he simultaneously be responsible to all three?

Jerrold Post

If dogs or cats burned up in a fire like this, you can bet there would be a thorough investigation.

This [event] is not about the training or road races leading up to marathon day, but about the drive to protect those we love from pain and suffering.

Laura Bailey

It should come as no surprise to anyone that producers manipulate their shows and their contestants in order to produce higher ratings. The impact of such manipulation, however, is that some innocent people may suffer or feel worse for going through the process.

David Carey

We want to nip it in the bud. The inaccuracy of someone hunting through a computer would lead to animals being wounded and suffering.

Anne Parillaud

They had no bags, no tubing but this is what they've been stuck with. It's really bothersome to me, what patients are suffering. The carpet that they were standing on has been ripped out from under them.

I've seen an awful lot, and I hope I never see it again. You see real suffering from people. It does a number on you.

Mufi Hannemann

The challenge for Abbas is to compel Israel to deal with Palestinians and the Palestinian agenda. Otherwise his credibility is going to suffer enormously.

Mouin Rabbani

Acupuncture helps with a lot of types of pain. People are more aware now that the pet does not have to suffer. One cat had skin problems, and they were going to put him to sleep. Acupuncture was a last resort and it really helped.

Lynhaar Rodriguez

Because there is no doubt that he cannot and will not suffer pain if unconscious, the remedy crafted by the district court, though hardly necessary as a constitutional matter, provides Morales with precisely the form of assurance he demanded.

Jim Ramstad

The EU are the ones putting the development round under threat, and developing countries will suffer most.

Mark Vaile

Look, this is not a movie for kids.

Michael Medved

Frankly, Dickinson got what he deserved. We had to listen to his [complaints] for five straight weeks. He only had to suffer a couple of eggs on the head.

Sharon Osbourne

This program will use the network of more than 800 local Red Cross chapters across the country to help families map out their own individual roads to recovery.

Russ Paulsen

He was warned not to do it and he must suffer the consequences.

Freddy Shepherd

It's easy to forget that nurses are human and that sometimes they need to be rescued from life's devastating circumstances. Nurses House offers nurses who are in pain and suffering a helping hand and a warm heart in their hour of need.

Michael Singer

I met him to try and bring about an end to sanctions, suffering and war, and on the second occasion, I met him to try and persuade him to allow Hans Blix and U.N. inspectors back into country.

We are completely abandoned. It is a shame that after so many years and our endless testimonies of atrocities that happened to us, there is still no law that would put a stop to our suffering. The war is not over for us.

This is all part of the imperialistic conspiracy that the region has been suffering from for years.

Buthaina Shaaban

If suffering brings wisdom, I would wish to be less wise.

Allen Brown

We're suffering from our success as a great community. Our real estate prices are out of sight.

Nancy Floreen

Blessed be the inventor of photography! I set him above even the inventor of chloroform! It has given more positive pleasure to poor suffering humanity than anything else that has ''cast up'' in my time or is like to -- this art by which even the ''poor'' can possess themselves of tolerable likenesses of their absent dear ones. And mustn't it be acting favorably on the morality of the country?

Jane Welsh Carlyle

The result is bad, very disappointing. It is highly likely that the company's shares will suffer as a result.
