Jonathan Shapiro
I’m going through this phase where I don’t make an effort to make friends with anyone. This is primarily because I know that people try to make friends only till the time the camera is on. I’m not comfortable with such friendships and I didn’t resort to it in ‘Bigg Boss’ either.

William J. Clinton
I guess that I’m primarily thought of as a rocker, largely because of ‘Frankenstein’ being such a heavy song – you know, it was really hard rock, almost a precursor of heavy metal and just the image of the synthesizer. I happened to be the first guy to get the idea of putting a strap on the keyboard.

Edgar Winter
Many run primarily for the exercise, but others run to condition themselves for well-publicized races of various distances.

Darren Boyd
I’ve been lucky enough to primarily work for myself over the years.

Jim Courier

Barton Gellman
A lot of Christians have been taught a story that begins in chapter 3 of Genesis, instead of chapter 1. If your story doesn’t begin in the beginning, but begins in chapter 3, then it starts with sin, and so the story becomes about dealing with the sin problem. So Jesus is seen as primarily dealing with our sins.

Alma Guillermoprieto
For those who have envisioned the State of Israel to be a democracy, which although primarily a Jewish polity for Jews is one in which non-Jews can become citizens and enjoy equal civil rights with the Jewish majority, the question of natural law is the question of human rights.

A good folk song tells you something you already know, in a form you’re already familiar with, on terms that were set down long before you were born – when the country was primarily windblown dust, open wagon trains, and dysfunctional towns like Deadwood.

David Means
I prefer theater, but I love to do films, and I prefer theater primarily because I’ve done more. I know less about movies. You can’t lie in either medium. The wonderful thing is that the camera, just like an audience, is made out of skin – because celluloid is skin.

Amanda Plummer
We take what we think are the tools of spiritual transformation into our own hands and try to sculpt ourselves into robust Christlike specimens. But spiritual transformation is primarily the work of the Holy Spirit. He is the Master Sculptor.

Jerry Bridges
While the Left seems obsessed with increasing taxes and spending even more money, conservatives have focused more heavily on the need for spending restraint and entitlement reform – primarily to preserve and protect the future of the Medicare program. Overlooked in all of this is the future of Medicaid.

The poet is primarily a spokesman, making statements or incantations on behalf of himself or others – usually for both, for it is difficult to speak for oneself without speaking for others or to speak for others without speaking for oneself.

To be pursuing any profession isn’t easy because it is still primarily a man’s world. It affects how you get paid and your hours of work, among other things.

Richa Chadha

Stanley A. McChrystal
Because Pilates requires you to press your abs toward your spine, you don’t want to allow your lower belly to round and press out as air comes into your lungs.

Denise Austin
Stories, as much as we like to talk about them, retrospectively, as emanations of theme or worldview or intention, occur primarily as technical objects when they’re being written. Or at least they do for me. They’re the result of thousands of decisions made at speed during revision.

Mohammed Hussein Al Amoudi

Martin Jacques
With few exceptions, the publishing industry has come to a consensus: if a book has a young protagonist, and if its worldview is primarily interested in the questions that crop up when coming of age, then it’s a young adult novel.

Lynn Coady
I write and have done so primarily for personal pleasure.

Franz Wright

Scott Derrickson
A significant piece of the wealth that the NFL owners garner is a result of the enormous TV revenues they get – and those revenues are supported by a legislatively granted exemption from the antitrust laws that has been made applicable to sports leagues, primarily the NFL.

Eliot Spitzer
The department was set up primarily to protect us from another terrorist attack from Islamic terrorists, and yet they talk about everything but that.

Peter T. King

Bobby Kotick
Every time I find myself stressed out, it’s because I do things primarily driven by growth.

Tim Ferriss
I want to go wherever there’s great work. I’m a huge fan of film primarily. But you can get a great TV show and get attached to it. Making a great film is forever, though, so I always want to be part of film. It’s my first love.

Aml Ameen
What is discipleship? It is primarily obedience to the Savior. Discipleship includes many things. It is chastity. It is tithing. It is family home evening. It is keeping all the commandments. It is forsaking anything that is not good for us.

James E. Faust
The Corona Extra brand was launched in Austin, Texas. From Austin, where it was exclusively for three or four months, it became more widely available in that state and in others, primarily in the southwest and western United States.

Bobby Sands
I spent 20 years of my career primarily being a writer for hire.

Frank Darabont
Our socialism does not include extreme materialistic concepts, since Indonesia is primarily a God-fearing, God-loving nation. Our socialism is a mixture.

When I go on the road now, which is less than before, but still more than I’d like to, I think of myself primarily as a singer. Not a songwriter, not a celebrity, just a man who likes to sing.

Don McLean
I’d love to do Broadway some day. Before I started doing television I was just a primarily a stage actor, but I haven’t done it in a while.

Steve Carell
The battle against terrorism is not only a military fight but primarily a battle of information.

The Lord has done what I wanted Him to do this week. I wanted, primarily, peace about going into pioneer Indian work. And as I analyze my feelings now, I feel quite at ease about saying that tribal work in South American jungles is the general direction of my missionary purpose.

Jim Elliot
I have young kids. The fiscal burden that will be imposed on them is going to depend primarily on whether we tackle this looming problem in our health care system – with rising costs that don’t seem, by the way, to be necessarily associated with higher quality. That is the key burden that they will face.

Peter Orszag
In conversion you are not attached primarily to an order, nor to an institution, nor a movement, nor a set of beliefs, nor a code of action – you are attached primarily to a Person, and secondarily to these other things.

E. Stanley Jones
I’m the joke of the family with cooking because I’ve never done it – primarily because I’ve been surrounded by people who are so good at it. Mum’s brilliant. Boyfriends have always been good at it. I’m waiting for my inner chef to be released.

Vikram Seth
Let me make it clear that the Youth Employment Opportunities Act of 1961 is not primarily concerned with delinquency prevention. Rather, it is designed to help all types of young men or women who suffer deficiencies of training or opportunity which keep them unemployed.

Robert Kennedy
Once religion has been dismissed by primarily an intellectual class of people, we lose the really useful social functions of religion… What replaces it might be worse than what we throw away.

Bill Clinton was impeached primarily for criminal conduct: lying under oath and misleading a federal grand jury about his affair with Monica Lewinsky. Nixon would have been impeached for a wide array of criminal acts, as well as abuses of power.

Noam Chomsky
Of course we are doing this primarily for ourselves, but I know our fans dig most of it, too.

Kerry King
Nominally left- and right-wing populists differ primarily in their choice of which ‘others’ to exclude and attack, with the former singling out big corporations and oligarchs, and the latter targeting ethnic or religious minorities.

Margaret MacMillan
I think trust is primarily built through relationships, and it’s important because it’s the foundational currency that a leader has with his team or his followers.

Tom Rath
I think in the U.S., the border fence is no longer an immigration issue primarily; it’s a security issue.

Duncan Hunter
Seeing Anonymous primarily as a cybersecurity threat is like analyzing the breadth of the antiwar movement and 1960s counterculture by focusing only on the Weathermen.

Johan Huizinga
My fitness regimen primarily consists of power yoga, cardio and light weight training.

Timothy Radcliffe

John Larroquette

N. R. Narayana Murthy
The central genius of the American Constitution lies in its use of structure to protect individual liberty. It does not rely solely, or even primarily, on grants of substantive rights.

William Barr
Most businesses do not take governments seriously when it comes to climate, primarily because many governments have inconsistent and incoherent policies and then often keep changing them, sometimes retroactively. This makes businesses reluctant to invest in greener technologies.

Jose Angel Gurria
I primarily look at how a role is laid out by the director. I take into consideration my co-stars, before signing a role.

Divya Dutta
I was a musical theater major at the University of Arizona. And I primarily trained with Marsha Bagwell. It was a classical program, so we did Chekov and Moliere and a lot of Shakespeare.

Christine Woods
The opportunities that Gorbachev created for international relations have also been missed, perhaps even lost – here, however, primarily because of the United States.

Stephen Cohen
Anyone in public life who comes out, comes out primarily for themselves, and their life is immediately improved. That’s what happened to me.

Ian Mckellen
I consider myself primarily a songwriter first, so the goal is to write songs that might be personal, but that people can translate into their own particular life.

Ishita Dutta
My major influences were primarily guitar players and bands; I started playing bass by accident.

George Edward Woodberry
I knew that I wanted to primarily play queer characters.

Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman
There’s a lot to be said for women who want to focus primarily on acting. Other women, on the other hand, aspire to combine their work in acting with other ventures in fashion, business, directing, writing, producing, etc. It’s a very personal decision.

Danielle Campbell
I’m from Asia. You can hear it in my voice, and you can see it in my face, and that’s primarily my perspective.

Ronny Chieng
For any culture which is primarily concerned with meaning, the study of death – the only certainty that life holds for us – must be central, for an understanding of death is the key to liberation in life.

Stanislav Grof
We’ve all been influenced by American naturalism, and to ignore that entirely would be impossible for me as someone who works primarily in film.

Ben Foster
In the beginning, editorial always inspired my beauty looks, but we’re living in a primarily digital age, and Instagram is a great source – as is Pinterest – to find brilliant ideas that spark new ideas in me and the talented makeup artists I work with.

Tommy Dorfman
It’s not a natural translation, transition, to take something from stage to screen. Onstage your action is communicated through the spoken word primarily, and on screen it’s communicated through pictures. So it’s always been kind of unnatural to take something that lives on the stage and turn it into moving pictures.

Tracy Letts
But I think Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang really got that thing where, if a movie reads really funny and then has some dramatic or violent or sinister stuff in it, you can’t forget that primarily it has to be even funnier than you read it or that other stuff doesn’t work.

Robert Downey, Jr.
We want to see ourselves – but differently. We want to see these dream versions of ourselves. We want to be surprised; we want to be entertained.

Elvis Mitchell
Til 1983, I wrote primarily for other psychologists and expected that they would be the principal audience for my book.

The unit of effectiveness of education is not the individual but the group. An individual’s moral values are primarily important for society as they contribute to a moral social climate, not as they induce particular pieces of behavior.

Lawrence Kohlberg
I grew up reading comics. I was primarily an ‘X-Men’ fan, but I definitely dressed up as Spider-Man for Halloween when I was, like, 12 years old. Maybe younger than that.

Jake Epstein
Many American Muslims are peaceful and define jihad primarily as an internal struggle to improve.

Marvin Olasky
Luckily, I was blessed to go to Stanford and a school that was primarily focused on academics, so it was a blessing.

Richard Sherman
I always have a lot of personal goals, but primarily my main goal each year is to obviously win a Super Bowl.

Michael Strahan
This industry is quick to stereotype. People had started talking about how I was primarily being part of women-centric movies. I didn’t want to be labelled as part of a mahila morcha.

Taapsee Pannu
If someone were to call me ‘the next Amy Tan,’ it would not be because – or not primarily because – we have similar themes or subjects or styles. Let’s be honest: it would be because we are both Chinese American.

Celeste Ng
Women are starting something like twice as many companies as men, but the money is primarily going to companies started by men.

Anita Borg
Writing detective stories is about writing light literature, for entertainment. It isn’t primarily a question of writing propaganda or classical literature.

Stieg Larsson
Fidel Castro, whatever people may think of him, is a hero in Latin America, primarily because he stood up to the United States.

Noam Chomsky
I think ‘Party Down’ found its audience primarily on Netflix and stuff like that, and primarily after it had been cancelled.

Adam Scott
Primarily, ‘Black Girl/White Girl’ is the story of two very different, yet somehow ‘fated’ girls; for Genna, her ‘friendship’ with Minette is the most haunting of her life, though it is one-sided and ends in tragedy.

Joyce Carol Oates
I think I finally chose the graduate degree in engineering primarily because it only took one year and law school took three years, and I felt the pressure of being a little behind – although I was just 22.

Daniel J. Evans
The thing is, as a film director, you’re essentially alone: You have to tell a story primarily through pictures, and only you know the film you see in your head.

Mike Nichols
I prefer exiting from projects that don’t meet certain conditions, which primarily have to do with the script. When I’m disturbed, I can’t act. I’m no use as a non-actor, right?

Vishnu Vishal
I think the Rainbow Flag will survive forever, primarily because it’s the perfect flag, regardless of whatever political meaning it may have or evolve to.

Gilbert Baker
A page a day means I need to focus on a gag a day, and that’s great for laughs but bad for plot, and I’m primarily a plot guy.

Doug TenNapel
I rejected the traditional notion of ‘women’s work,’ but I never thought of my early ambitions in a feminist way, exactly. Primarily I rebelled against apathy and limited education. I was rejecting a whole way of life that I thought trapped everyone.

Bobbie Ann Mason
I first went to Cambodia in 2002, primarily, as it turned out, to change diapers. My wife had work in Phnom Penh, and thus left with her driver and translator early each morning and returned later each night, while I took care of our firstborn son, who was 2 at the time.

Michael Paterniti
What the government has to do, if it wants to govern for any length of time, is it must appeal primarily to the third parties in the House of Commons to get them to support it.

Stephen Harper
Things like dressing, postures and gestures are under the artiste’s control. If I’m performing, my safety is primarily my responsibilityso I shouldn’t end up doing anything that would infuriate the audience.

Shefali Zariwala
I started dancing when I was four years old and then was in class until I was about 20 years old or so, and then primarily was dancing just in shows that I was doing, but not really studying and training.

Sutton Foster
I knew I wanted to be an engineer, but I didn’t know what type of engineer. I chose electrical engineering primarily because it was the hardest one to get into. It’s ridiculous when I think about it now, but it worked out OK.

Steve Mollenkopf
Primarily I’m a meat man, although once in a while I toy with a few vegetables.

Nat King Cole
This empire, unlike any other in the history of the world, has been built primarily through economic manipulation, through cheating, through fraud, through seducing people into our way of life, through the economic hit men. I was very much a part of that.

John Perkins
I don’t like to say I’m not a believer because I still feel like a believer in a lot of things, primarily hope and grace and the power of human connection.

Megan Phelps-Roper
In my opinion, the battles over birth control and Planned Parenthood are primarily neither political nor religious. This is an issue of equality for women. This is an issue of women’s rights: Planned Parenthood is the most important private provider of reproductive health care for women in the United States.

Karen DeCrow
We suffer primarily not from our vices or our weaknesses, but from our illusions. We are haunted, not by reality, but by those images we have put in their place.

Daniel J. Boorstin
I came to Washington primarily to meet other entrepreneurs. That being said, I was also curious to hear how our federal government was thinking about entrepreneurship.

Neil Blumenthal
In any business opportunity, you’d be looking, probably, primarily at the risk and return. Some business can be very risky with a low return; what you want is the lowest risk with the biggest return.

John Caudwell
I had been an activist on the issue of HIV, primarily in the African American and Latino communities here in the U.S. for many years. It was horrifying to me how the pandemic was raging right here in this country but no one was talking about it.

Gloria Reuben
Yes, people do come across the street to say hi, but as they approach and get near, my perception of space begins to dissolve, and a new interest takes over that is primarily emotional, and with it comes a desire to touch, which may be a human interest, but not the interest of my work.

Diego Giacometti
All good Literature rests primarily on insight.

George Henry Lewes
I haven’t taught since 2004, but I taught high school English for seven years, primarily at a place called Haddonfield Memorial, which is in a very well-to-do-community in Southern New Jersey.

Matthew Quick
Meaningful health reform needs to provide incentives for physicians and other health professionals to teach their patients healthy ways of living rather than reimbursing primarily drugs and surgical interventions.

Dean Ornish
‘Beyond Glory’ is responsible for this wave that I’ve been fortunate enough to ride for the last few years. And that I did primarily because I didn’t know what else to do. You might say I did it out of desperation.

Stephen Lang
What I am primarily is a neurogeneticist: I use genetics to study problems in neurobiology. The one problem I study primarily… understanding of the sense of touch.

Martin Chalfie
In fact, a coach is primarily a trainer, not only in tactics but also in emotional matters.

Diego Simeone
Tragically, the effort to make America and the world safer and to defend freedom around the world is not without an enormous cost to this Nation in terms primarily of lost lives and those who bear the scars and the wounds of war, and their families who must bear these losses.

John Warner
I began raising chickens primarily for their eggs, but over the years, I’ve also grown fond of caring for them and learning about their many different breeds and varieties.

Martha Stewart
I was reluctant to start the company that would become Lytro, primarily due to my academic background.

Ren Ng
Movie acting is primarily listening. If you’re really engaged, that’s all a movie audience wants to see is you processing what’s happening in your world.

Richard Gere
Primarily, I am a prose writer with axes to grind, and the theatre is a good place to do the grinding in. I prefer comedy to ‘serious’ drama because I believe one can get the ax sharper on the comedic stone.

Gore Vidal
A romance novel focuses exclusively on two people falling in love. It can’t be about a woman caring for her aging mother or something like that. It can have that element, but it has to be primarily about the male-female relationship.

Kristin Hannah
Primarily I see myself as so much more than a rapper. I really believe I am the voice for a lot of people who don’t have that microphone or who can’t rap.

During this period, Japan’s peaceful commercial relations were successively obstructed, primarily by the American rupture of commercial relations, and this was a grave threat to the survival of Japan.

Hideki Tojo
Most people will be primarily getting into autonomous vehicles if we look 20, 30 years out. If we mandate that autonomous vehicles have to be electric, then we will move people into electric vehicles.

Eric Garcetti
Throughout my Enterprise career, I have been primarily operationally focused.

Pamela Nicholson
I believe that we have been doing this not primarily to achieve riches or even honour, but rather because we were interested in the work, enjoyed doing it and felt very strongly that it was worthwhile.

Frederick Sanger
The federal election statutes are primarily meant to be civil. That doesn’t mean that you can’t have a criminal violation of the FEC provisions, but that’s just my personal opinion.

John Kennedy
For the future, primarily, we must educate people in science, engineering, technology and math.

Buzz Aldrin
I eat steak primarily. That’s pretty much what my diet consists of. Sometimes I supplement that with other steaks.

Jocko Willink
American politicians are responsive almost solely to the interests and desires of their rich constituents and interest groups that primarily represent big business.

Alex Pareene
The truth, whether we admit it or not, is that grace scares us to death. It scares us primarily because it wrestles control and manageability out of our hands – introducing chaos and freedom.

Tullian Tchividjian
I went to see ‘Shine a Light,’ and it was the most perfect thing I could have done to watch that man do what he does in front of an audience. It’s primarily Mick Jagger, but they’re all so confident and relaxed and in love with what they do, and aware of the power of what they do. It’s just deeply, deeply attractive.

Ben Daniels
A lot of action heroes, we’re told they are heroic primarily because they commit violence upon the bad guy. It can be cathartic; it can be thrilling. But at some point, I think you want more from your heroes than just the ability and willingness to pummel someone.

Gail Simone
If I were to organize somebody’s diet I would first of all ensure they were getting enough protein, make sure it is the right quality with first class proteins primarily.

Dorian Yates
Those who know New York City primarily through tourism or mass culture may think of us natives as possessing certain shared characteristics, not all of them flattering. But the true, volatile charisma of New York lies in how balkanised it is.

Jonathan Dee
My college training was primarily in theatre, with an eye to becoming a director, actor, or producer.

Orson Scott Card
I work primarily for the camera-it’s not something I really talk about a lot, but it’s part of the way I am as a movie actor. The camera is my girl, as it were.

Terence Stamp
I am genuinely sorry that my attendance at an event which, other than my comments, appears to have primarily involved a discussion of cockfighting, has created concern on the part of many Kentucky voters.

Matt Bevin
‘Kanche’ is not primarily a war film: it is a lovely story set against a war backdrop.

Varun Tej
A great novel is concerned primarily with the interior lives of its characters as they respond to the inconvenient narratives that fate imposes on them. Movie adaptations of these monumental fictions often fail because they become mere exercises in interior decoration.

Richard Schickel
I was born in Cleveland, Ohio; raised primarily in Phoenix, Arizona; and, after running away from home in my teens to play music and bouncing around a bit, settled in Oxford, Mississippi, which I consider more my home than anywhere else in the world.

Jonathan Miles
I’m going to stay active as long as I can politically, and with the Carter Center primarily, and if I’m able mentally and physically, will continue to be quite active.

Jimmy Carter
Lil’ Nog had some trouble with Jason Brilz primarily because he put a scramble into every position he had. Nogueira would be going for a half guard sweep and Brilz would use his wrestling to create a better position. Nogueira is a very well rounded fighter, but I think the main thing he lacks is a good wrestling base.

Ryan Bader
The institutions of college athletics exist primarily as unreality fueled by deceit. The unreality is that universities should be in the business of providing large spectacles of mass entertainment. The fundamental absurdity of that notion requires the promulgation of the various deceits necessary to carry it out.

Charlie Pierce
When I first arrived in the U.S. House of Representatives, I naively believed that it was primarily the Democrats who were committed to open borders. But I quickly learned the entire Republican establishment also supported a policy of immigration non-enforcement.

Tom Tancredo
Your levels of cholesterol are primarily dependent on your own body’s production rather than the result of eating animal fats. Moreover, some forms of cholesterol are heart healthy.

Harley Pasternak
That is not to say that we can relax our readiness to defend ourselves. Our armament must be adequate to the needs, but our faith is not primarily in these machines of defense but in ourselves.

Chester W. Nimitz
Other than Caroline’s in New York, I pretty much haven’t done clubs. That was primarily because I always liked the people and audiences at theaters and bars better.

Kurt Braunohler
You can get too bogged down in technology and you can sort of forget what it is you were trying to do. And with the Pet Shop Boys it’s primarily about the songs, it’s about song writing.

Chris Lowe
These days, the manufacturing is controlled by a small number of countries, primarily Taiwan and South Korea.

Mary Lou Jepsen
President Nixon has lost his effectiveness as the leader of this country, primarily because he has lost the confidence of the people.

Edward Brooke
I was raised primarily by women. I had a mother who almost killed herself to survive, I had a sister who was eight years older who was like a second mother, and my mother had two sisters. In the environment I grew up in, I heard a lot of female perspectives.

James L. Brooks
Such being the nature of mental life, the business of psychology is primarily to describe in detail the various forms which attention or conation assumes upon the different levels of that life.

Samuel Alexander
The success that Americans are said to worship is success of a specific sort: accomplished not through hard work, primarily, but through the ingenious angle, the big break. Sit down at a lunch counter, stand back up a star. Invest in a new issue and watch it soar. Split a single atom, win a war.

Walter Kirn
Reconciliation is a special budget procedure to change entitlement and tax laws. It cannot be filibustered and requires only a simple majority in the Senate to be passed. It is primarily intended for deficit and mandatory spending reduction.

Jeff Miller
I am primarily a writer of books, and I enjoy that. But I come to realize that a lot of people prefer a visual medium.

Lee Strobel
Since universities are funded in large parts by grants that depend on costly research, they have every incentive to free professors from their teaching duties as much as possible – as do the professors themselves, who tend to be recruited and promoted primarily based on research output.

Bret Weinstein
FreedomWorks, which is funded primarily by very rich people, solicits donations from non-rich conservative people. More than 80,000 people donated money to FreedomWorks in 2012, and it seems likely that only a small minority of those people were hedge fund millionaires.

Alex Pareene
The Olympics is a time primarily for sport and celebration, but diplomacy does not stop at the door of the U.N., and for it to work, it must be sustained and consistent.

Douglas Alexander
I’ve come to find more satisfaction and enjoyment in writing screenplays over the years because that’s what I do primarily now.

Diablo Cody
To most people in the U.K., indeed throughout Western Europe, space exploration is primarily perceived as ‘what NASA does’. This perception is – in many respects – a valid one. Superpower rivalry during the Cold War ramped up U.S. and Soviet space efforts to a scale that Western Europe had no motive to match.

Martin Rees
When I was younger, I went through a phase when I didn’t like my hair. Because the school I went to was primarily Caucasian, there wasn’t anyone who had my hair texture. I remember one day I straightened my hair, and that was the first day that people gave me compliments on it.

Being a Christian and seeing that white evangelical Christians were primarily the people who put guys like Donald Trump into office made my entire world explode.

Andy Mineo
After living in LA for 8 years, I sort of wanted a change, but there’s not much production in New York, which is where I primarily live, so I just sort of drifted over to London.

Alex Winter
I get work because I’m primarily a novelist but I’ve become script doctor. I can work back and forth between French and English.

Norman Spinrad
We have some inherent cost and infrastructure issues that are difficult to deal with, no questions. From my perspective, we have to work on the revenue side primarily. We’ve lost some customers. We need to rebuild the trust with those customers and get them back.

Oscar Munoz
My career is based primarily upon finding a balance with a director and their vision, and that means sublimating my own personal ego toward their material.

Robert Richardson
If Barack Obama now, or some black person in the future, should become president, neither Jesse Jackson nor Al Sharpton would be out of a job. A black president can’t end black misery; a black president can’t be a civil rights leader or primarily a crusader for racial justice.

Michael Eric Dyson
I would hazard a guess that we have found fossilized human remains of at least a thousand different specimens in South and East Africa, more or less complete at that. I think this is where the prelude to human history was primarily played out.

Richard Leakey
In elite, primarily white institutions, there are many blacks who have white wives. So much so that sometimes there is almost the assumption that I would be married to a white woman.

Randall Kennedy
