'There's a lot of mathematics in music. It's all in groups of eight, mate, y'know. The one thing that I may have in common with John is that the subject matter I do know, the driving part of my life, my work life, there's a point where structure and scaffolding is left behind and intuition takes over. That's the difference between John and the next 100 mathematicians. He's fully prepared to leave the scaffolding behind and get into the ether of the equation and find the answer quicker. The bane of his existence, however, is finding the proof.'

My greatest point is my persistence. I never give up in a match. However down I am, I fight until the last ball. My list of matches shows that I have turned a great many so-called irretrievable defeats into victories.

Here lies a most beautiful lady,
Light of step and heart was she;
I think she was the most beautiful lady
That ever was in the West Country.
But beauty vanishes; beauty passes;
However rare - rare it be;
And when I crumble, who will remember
This lady of the West Country?

We must, however, acknowledge as it seems to me, that a man with all his noble qualities... still bears in his bodily frame the indelible stamp of his lowly origin.

A mind without instruction can no more bear fruit than can a field, however fertile, without cultivation.

Anyone can carry his burden, however hard, until nightfall. Anyone can do his work, however hard, for one day. And this is all that life really means.

Meetings are a great trap. Soon you find yourself trying to get agreement and then the people who disagree come to think they have a right to be persuaded. However, they are indispensable when you don't want to do anything.
View quotes by Galbraith
Literary critics, however, frequently suffer from a curious belief that every author longs to extend the boundaries of literary art, wants to explore new dimensions of the human spirit, and if he doesn't, he should be ashamed of himself.

It is far better to grasp the universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring.

Think of how many religions attempt to validate themselves with prophecy. Think of how many people rely on these prophecies, however vague, however unfulfilled, to support or prop up their beliefs. Yet has there ever been a religion with the prophetic accuracy and reliability of science?

In taking out an insurance policy one pays for it in dollars and cents, always at liberty to discontinue payments. If, however, woman's premium is a husband, she pays for it with her name, her privacy, her self-respect, her very life, 'until death doth part.'

I really think happiness is very closely aligned with success, and may almost be an interchangeable synonym. Happiness (like success) also comes from doing what we feel called to do in life; however, it's also obvious no one can experience one without the other.
View quotes by Donna Fargo
Heroin on any basis is a worse drug, a more dangerous drug than cannabis, but heroin in its pharmaceutical preparation, diamorphine, is available on prescription for people in pain and it's very widely prescribed.
So the law does not say that, because a drug is classed as illegal it therefore should not be available on prescription. What it does say, however, is that before drugs are available on prescription they've got to be properly tested and reearched. Not that that's happened to a lot of opiates, heroin and cocain derivatives.
So far the medical researchers have not been able to prove, indeed very few have tried, that there are real beneficial medicinal effects from cannabis.

The people who recognize me fall into two categories. If they remember when $5 would pretty much fill a gas tank, they’re fans of 'NYPD Blue.'
If, however, they consider $5 fair payment for a gallon of gas and a latte, they know me from 'Saved By the Bell.'
