The Taliban has not, in my judgment, in any significant way changed their fundamental goal and objective, which is to take over Afghanistan and return to running that country. It doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t have negotiation talks with them. I think we should. But we’ve got to be clear-eyed about it.
I’ve learned the hard way at the national level that any erroneous statement will very quickly be magnified. So, as someone who talks for a living, I’ve learned to check, double-check and triple-check my sources.

The song ‘Paradigm’ talks about nanobots – and how they can potentially be used to cure diseases and help you live forever. But how much of a human being would you be at that point? If you’re 70 percent machine and 30 percent human, are you going to lose yourself?
You know who’s messianic? Netanyahu, because he talks that way. And that’s a very risky position.

I look at myself more as a storyteller than a screenwriter, as pretentious as that may sound, but that’s what really attracts me to TED Talks. For me, the really effective ones are being presented by expert storytellers.
Most directors that I’ve worked with – I’ve worked with before, especially in Holland – and they know that I’m somebody who talks and asks, and talks, and talks, and talks and questions and turns things around. I’m like a little cat, walking around my little nest until I find my place.
The more money the louder it talks.

Kerry Washington is the most fun: she cracks me up! Everyone talks about how drop-dead gorgeous, smart, and fashionable she is, and she is all of that, but I must add she’s the hugest goofball. She has the best sense of humor and lightheartedness that makes coming into work every day so delightful.

In the original introduction to the word meme in the last chapter of ‘The Selfish Gene,’ I did actually use the metaphor of a ‘virus.’ So when anybody talks about something going viral on the Internet, that is exactly what a meme is, and it looks as though the word has been appropriated for a subset of that.
I loved 1990s television: ‘The Fast Show,’ ‘Father Ted,’ ‘Harry Enfield.’ ‘Clive Anderson Talks Back.’

If the pitch starts with a sob story, I’m out. If the pitch talks about personal issues, I’m out. If the pitch starts off with how big the market opportunity is, I’m out.

The battle for freedom and liberty really never is over, and there are really low points in it, but I’m not giving up, and I’m not gonna engage in phony pep talks, either.

When one makes a Revolution, one cannot mark time; one must always go forward – or go back. He who now talks about the ‘freedom of the press’ goes backward, and halts our headlong course towards Socialism.

When things go well, everyone talks well of you and vice versa. Unfortunately, football is like that.

To me, a big crossover was what happened to me years ago, like bringing my music in Spanish to Europe, or Asia. To me, that’s a crossover because Spanish is not a language that everybody talks.
My first year in Japan was very tough, just like my first year in the minors. But at least there I had a lot of Dominican people and Latin people I can talk to. If you don’t have anybody to talk to, you can get depressed. But if you find someone who talks your language, it’s easier.
The whole Obama phenomenon brings up memories from my distant past: the good-looking guy who talks real good, whose line you don’t buy immediately but whose charm is so dazzling that he gradually convinces you that this time it will be different.

I’m not someone who enjoys long talks, long rehearsals. I’m very technical: I tell my actors, you come in, you sit down, you pick up a coffee, you look here, you say the line. We try it with the cameras rolling, and if it doesn’t work, we adjust it until it does. It’s very simple.

‘Focusing’ is no conventional repackaging of self-help wisdom. It is at once a manual and a philosophy. It talks about the body’s wisdom, the steps of the focusing technique, how to discover the richness in others by learning to listen.
Everything that I do on stage comes from seeing the Black Crowes in ’95 in Charlotte. For ‘Let Her Cry,’ I was just trying to write ‘She Talks to Angels.’

Nobody talks about it. But everyone knows that if you signed at Michigan or UNLV, you were viewed one way. If you signed at Duke or Indiana, you were viewed another way.

I’ve been around a lot of artists who are also good at business, and… one minute they’ll sound like an artist, and the next minute, they’ll sound like the characters in ‘Mad Men.’ Jay-Z’s a very good businessman, and he talks about it and enjoys it, but he doesn’t shift.
Darwin talks about evolution, but he doesn’t say how it started. Maybe the sense of mystery will dissolve in the face of science, but I am not so sure. We are all described by the human genome, but it’s getting people nowhere.
Blessed is he who talks in circles, for he shall become a big wheel.
Gospel talks about life’s struggles, but you always feel like it recognizes these struggles and that you can overcome them.
My friend Paul Ryan talks about fiscal responsibility, but voted to put two wars on a credit card.
If someone talks about union, fidelity, a monogamous relationship, love, blessing; I would say it sounds like marriage to me. And blessing, you see, I think is undermining our sacrament of marriage.
I think everyone talks about talent. It’s really one of the most overused terms. It comes down to, do you play, and do you win? Talent is one factor, but certainly not the only one.
When I started giving talks about women’s history, one of the things that bothered me was the tendency to say, ‘Well, everybody was totally oppressed and suddenly in 1964 we rose up, got our freedom, and here we are.’ It dismisses the women who fought for rights for several hundred years of our history up to that point.
There are interactions with characters within the game which I think are pretty neatly done considering the limitations that you have to work with. I mean, a computer can’t really generate a character that talks back and forth with you successfully.
‘I Was There Too’ talks to people who played non-starring roles in big movies. That means the likes of comedian Jimmy Pardo, who didn’t make it to the finished ‘Dreamgirls.’ Still, he recalls that when an actor is put on hold for a movie, he gets paid for two weeks just for sitting at home waiting to be called.
The way forward in the Middle East, as it has been around the world and throughout history, is communication. There must be direct talks between the Israelis and Palestinians, mediated by the United States.
Obama is the rare Democrat who talks easily about faith and values and who does so without upsetting those offended by the mixture of religion and politics.
But I think ‘Love, Actually’ has a very realistic view of human nature in line with the latest scientific evidence. The opening scene, where Hugh Grant’s character talks about the arrivals gate at Heathrow, is about friendship and connection, it’s about who we really are as a species.
I don’t think you’ll find one person that says I shoot from the hip. What they say is, ‘This guy talks eyeball to eyeball. This guy talks shoulder to shoulder. If you ask this guy a question, you’ll get an answer.’
Our short film ‘Kahaa Toh Tha’ talks about how people can get irritated and frustrated with each other which leads to quarrels or fights.

On teams that have won championships and got to the big game, there’s a certain vibe and feel in that locker room. Everyone talks about how there’s a brotherhood in that locker room, there’s not a lot of dissent, there’s not guys that go off on their own. It’s a team atmosphere.
Didier talks to all of us. Not just with me, but with all the attacking players. He has scored so many goals for Chelsea. But now he pushes the younger players. He is fantastic. A fantastic player, and a fantastic person.
My dad talks about the times when we’d play backyard cricket: If I got bowled out, I’d just refuse to let go of the bat and swing it at anyone who tried to take it away from me. I like to think that’s been tempered a bit over the years.
Someone should tell the fundamentalists that even Advaita philosophy in Hinduism talks of oneness in all existence.
I think good campaigns generally, but I think particularly presidential campaigns, they’re about the voters, and they’re about the future. And I think it’s hard to be a successful candidate who talks about the future who isn’t hopeful, who isn’t optimistic, and doesn’t offer a vision, right?
The lonely wanderer, who watches by the seashore the waves that roll between him and his home, talks of cruel facts, material barriers that, just because they are material, and not ideal, shall be the irresistible foes of his longing heart.

I would not suggest the U.S. should sit down with the North Koreans bilaterally immediately after they’ve fired missiles – because the appearance is that you reward bad behavior. But if North Korea behaves for some period of time, I would pretty much favor direct talks.
Money talks at the end of the day.
Kasich does two fundamentals in presidential politics wrong; he talks, and he keeps talking.
What everybody talks about is their own problem, to be honest with you.

‘The Act of Killing’ helped catalyze this basic transformation in how the media talks about the past.
Science will explain how but not why. It talks about what is, not what ought to be. Science is descriptive, not prescriptive; it can tell us about causes but it cannot tell us about purposes. Indeed, science disavows purposes.
Someday’ talks about a dream of mine.
I mean the game is just, everybody talks about baseball but I really think football probably has a little bit more American feeling than anything.

Either Trump only talks to those who play up to his delusion, or he simply doesn’t listen to those who might burst his bubble. Either way, that is a cause for worry.
My mom is just authentically herself all the time. She loves herself. She loves her sense of humor. She brings people in when she talks. She brings people in when she laughs.

Everyone the world over talks about British actors and British talent and I think that’s because we were trained – until now – in theatre.

‘Arrival’ talks very little about language and how to precisely dissect a foreign language. It’s more a film on intuition and communication by intuition, the language of intuition.

I am quite surprised, that with all my work, and some of it is very, very good, that nobody talks about The Miracle Worker. We’re talking about Mrs. Robinson. I understand the world… I’m just a little dismayed that people aren’t beyond it yet.
My mom always talks about how hard it was to grow up in a political family. It’s always split up, and just – I want to have fun in life. No, politics isn’t on the list.

I think Obama is right when he talks about the rule of law as a cornerstone of what the United States should stand for. That can encompass our elected officials’ adherence to law and our country’s return to the Geneva Conventions.
And then, all of a sudden, you’re like, all that’s great and fun, but Arthur Miller’s in my dressing room. This is the third night he’s been here and he sits in my dressing room for an hour after each show, and talks to me for an hour. So I’m pretty spoiled right now.
We understand what President Trump means when he talks about taking the country back. He does not see America as a country of people from diverse backgrounds united around values of freedom and respect. In his ‘American carnage’ version of our country, immigrants and refugees are a threat.
People find it odd when an older person talks about sex. Instead, it is accepted from a younger person. Having said that, I do feel awkward talking about such topics.
Dancehall is just like hip-hop in that it doesn’t always talk about bling; it talks about conscious issues.
When someone talks about Western films, you probably think of those old black and white cowboy films your granddad likes. But the Western is a wonderful genre because it is usually a story of a lone hero fighting against corruption in a dangerous world.
When you’re the older guy, everybody talks about you. When you win, everybody talks about you. When you lose, everybody talks about you.
The job of the poet is to render the world – to see it and report it without loss, without perversion. No poet ever talks about feelings. Only sentimental people do.
North Korea is a religion. We are told that Kim is a god and that he knows what you are thinking and how many hairs are on your head. It is the only country which talks about ‘thought crime’ – even thinking is a crime.

I heard a lot about Ian Botham’s Ashes, in 1981. Everybody still talks about his performance.

Oh my goodness me, Daniel Day-Lewis – huge, huge fan of his. I’ve always loved his philosophy on acting: he always talks about returning to a state of play.

Conor McGregor started well with his marketing, he talks a lot and is a great fighter, we can’t deny that, but I think he crossed the line.
Everybody talks about tariffs as the first thing. Tariffs are the last thing. Tariffs are part of the negotiation. The real trick is going to be increase American exports. Get rid of some of the tariff and non-tariff barriers to American exports.
Until the control of the issue of currency and credit is restored to government and recognized as its most conspicuous and sacred responsibility, all talks of the sovereignty of Parliament and of democracy is idle and futile.

I’m not one of those football people who thinks and talks nothing but football.

The game is just, everybody talks about baseball, but I really think football probably has a little bit more American feeling than anything.
The SNP talks a lot – but they have proved that they cannot deliver.
I think every age has a medium that talks to it more eloquently than the others. In the 19th century it was symphonic music and the novel. For various technical and artistic reasons, film became that eloquent medium for the 20th century.

I’m pleased that, following President Obama’s visit to Israel, talks between Israel and Turkey are again taking place and hope that relations between them will further improve in the interest of both countries.
He could give very motivating team talks, but did not do that so often. Instead, Mourinho implemented a new system at Chelsea: he nominated players for team talks. That’s a great idea in my opinion.

As the character talks and moves, the world around him is slowly revealed, just like dollying a camera back for a wider look at things. So all my stories start with a character, and that character introduces setting, culture, conflict, government, economy… all of it, through his or her eyes.
When Zidane talks to you, you know you are being spoken to by one of the greatest players in the history of the game. He has been there and done it. You never stop learning from him.

Stadiums are full, pitches are good, the press is different, people are different, the football culture is different. Everyone talks highly of England and I’d like to experience it one day.

I mean, Joel talks to the actors more than I do and I probably do production stuff a little more than he does.

‘Pootie Tang’ may be raw and slovenly – hey, it often is raw and slovenly – but it succeeds as a laugh getter because of the spot-on satirical notes. You might say that the movie walks it like it talks it; I’m not sure what Pootie would say.
If you talk to God, you are praying; If God talks to you, you have schizophrenia.
The thing about World War II is that everyone knows about the concentration camps in Europe – in Nazi Germany and Poland and Auschwitz and the other camps – but, no one really talks about the camps that were here in the United States.

One thing I’ll say about Drake is that he never talks about me about going to any schools. I know people think that, but he has never done that. He just talks to me about how I’m dealing with life and things like that. He’s like a big bro and I really appreciate that about him.

AJ’ is a very special movie to me. I have been watching Dinesh and Rajkumar from their initial days, and have witnessed their evolution.

People who ask us when we will hold talks with Pakistan are perhaps not aware that over the last 55 years, every initiative for a dialogue with Pakistan has invariably come from India.

Dialogue can be held with everyone. It is not necessary to be like-minded to hold talks, but it is compulsory to be right-minded.

I like Mourinho’s sessions: very dynamic, always with the ball. There are no really long sessions or talks. He understands what a footballer needs: twenty minutes, that’s it. No time to lose concentration.
Everyone talks about how the anonymity of the Internet allows people to behave badly, but I think it’s the other way around, that the anonymity removes the ‘self’ from the people we’re talking to online. Other people lose their humanity in our eyes. The system is set up to dehumanize.
There’s nothing in the Bible that talks about retirement.
Around my neighborhood, I’m known as the American who talks to her computer while she types.
Being a swimsuit model that talks so much on Twitter… everyone thinks that I could definitely pull back. You kind of open yourself up to all the criticism. That’s definitely a big downside to this whole world. How can you complain about people critiquing your body when you’re literally like, ‘Look at my body!’
I love players like Thurston Moore. I mean, you can put notes down on a sheet of paper, and if you practice and get your chops up, you can play like an Eddie Van Halen or a Steve Vai. But nobody can do what Thurston Moore does; he’s his own guy. He talks through his instrument in a language that’s all his own.
I’m not going to be the artist that talks about a million dollar whip and ‘I just bought some red bottoms.’ That’s cool, but that’s not all there is to it. I’d rather talk about something everyone can relate to and feel.

I look at Samoa Joe, and I’ve told him a number of times that I see his stuff at ‘NXT’ and think to myself, ‘Man, I could have a great deal of fun with you.’ He’s a guy I have sort of enjoyed, and one of those sleeper guys that no one talks about.
When the trainer talks to the fighter, there’s a connection. You don’t always have to say much.

Didier Drogba has been an inspiration to all of us in the Ivory Coast national team. He is a great motivator for all of us – and some of the talks he gives are like a president trying to motivate his country. It is not just what he does on the field – but also all he does for all of our people off the field.
Onassis was a man who loved to walk, to walk and talk, and he was the kind of man who doesn’t go to sleep at night-he talks and talks.

Zidane’s success comes from transmitting calm and never changing that no matter what is happening. That serenity and tranquility conveys confidence and security. He talks little but when he does, it matters.
I remember my first scene with Alan Rickman, and I was anxious because he is a slight ‘method’ actor; as soon as he is in his cloak, he walks and talks like Snape – it is quite terrifying. But I really wanted to talk to him because ‘Robin Hood’ was one of my favourite films.
On a global scale, the way Trump talks about dealing with foreign policy is very scary.
At a lot of college graduations, you’ll hear people say, ‘Follow your passions,’ and that is important, but no one talks about the stress of not having enough money, the issues of debt, and the issues of work stress.

I prefer if friends come over to my office and we talk our heart out over a cup of coffee. I feel that no one talks freely at industry bashes.

When a writer talks about his work, he’s talking about a love affair.

When I go to colleges for talks, I encourage the students to drop out.

Everybody talks about the FA Cup being special, and now I know from personal experience it is really special to be involved in.
In many companies, the person who talks the best usually gets the job. I got snowed by a few of those people over the years. I still think communication is important, but I don’t think there’s always a correlation between being a great communicator and other virtues that make for a great leader.
