“All these years, they’ve been giving lip service to saying that we are a party that is inclusive instead of exclusive. We’ve said the Democratic Party has a great big umbrella, and everybody can be comfortable under that umbrella. If they didn’t mean it, then it ought to be pulled apart.”

― Bert Lance

― Billy Ocean

“I’ve worked with a lot of gay and lesbian organizations. I sit on the board of the Empire State Pride Agenda. I’ve also done a lot of work for Broadway Care/Equity Fights AIDS.

― Brett Kavanaugh

“Going public is 18-month process, while an acquisition is a 6-month process. Going public means going under so much scrutiny, regulatory approval, auditing, magnified 10 times. Having the stomach to do that isn’t necessarily in my DNA. My DNA is building a product and a service.”

― Brian Acton

“My DNA is building a product and a service.”

― Brian Acton

― Brooke Baldwin

“Dictators, unlike Democrats, depend on a small coterie to sustain their power. These backers, generally drawn from the military, the senior civil service, and family or clan members, have a synergistic relationship with their dictator. The dictator delivers opportunities for them to become rich, and they protect him from being overthrown.”

― Bruce Bueno de Mesquita

You have to show that you have a skill that you can offer to the community and provide a service to the community. So we started the Barefoot College, and we redefined professionalism.”

― Bunker Roy

“The most impressive airplane ever, I believe, was designed only a dozen years after the first operational jet. Stayed in service till it was too rusty to fly, taken out of service. We retreated in ’98 back to something that was developed in ’56. What? The most impressive spaceship ever, I believe, was a Grumman Lunar Lander.”

It’s hard to do, given the appetite and the angles from which everybody’s coming at it.”

― Carrie Fisher

“When the business interests… pushed through the first installment of civil service reform in 1883, they expected that they would be able to control both political parties equally.”

― Charles Bronson

“I find a difference in British spy fiction and American spy fiction. In the American version, it’s more militaristic, partly because the CIA has more of the military makeup. Whereas MI6 is more of a cerebral, intelligence-based, relationship-based service, i.e., all they do is recruit people to get information out of them.”

“When you have a sense of calling, whether it’s to be a musician, soloist, artist, in one of the technical fields, or a plumber, there is something deep and enriching when you realize it isn’t just a casual choice, it’s a divine calling.

― Constance Wu

“A lot of people talk about running for office, but what are you going to do when you get there? It’s about service – and there aren’t enough hours in the day.”

― Corrine Brown

― Craig Kelly

“’Bloomberg’s, you know, for people who don’t use the service, provides through the Internet – through specialized computers – information about the financial world. It’s a very large data base. I think they have on the order of a billion dollars or more a year in revenue.”

― Craig Venter

“Only as long as a company can produce a desired, worthwhile, and needed product or service, and can command the public, will it receive the public dollar and succeed.”

― Curtis Carlson

“I don’t like to sit still for long at all, which has probably helped me along the way, and partly why I was drawn to the heat of a restaurant kitchen. The rush of service means that you’re always on your toes and keeps a chef pretty active.”

― Curtis Stone

“I don’t see that anyone owes me anything for my service. I don’t feel any sense of entitlement.”

― Dakota Meyer

“As a GM Goodwrench Service Plus dealer, I understand how good service makes a difference to our customers.”

― Dale Earnhardt

“A nascent economy needs a transparent and accountable government and an efficient civil service to help meet social needs. Its people need jobs and a belief in their country’s future. A surfeit of aid has been shown to be unable to help achieve these goals.”

― Dambisa Moyo

“I’m fascinated by how much has changed from one generation to another. There are young people growing up now for whom apartheid is just a distant memory and the idea of military service is an abstract notion.”

― Damon Galgut

“My first jobs were all civil service. At 14, I worked for the Canadian National Railways. At 16, I worked for the Canadian Penitentiary Service.”

― Dan Aykroyd

“When I was a kid, the miracles of my life were the Resurrection, a candlelight service on New Year’s Eve, the Virgin Birth, and the Three Wise Men.”

― Dan Brown

“On this Veterans Day, let us remember the service of our veterans, and let us renew our national promise to fulfill our sacred obligations to our veterans and their families who have sacrificed so much so that we can live free.”

“The best form of customer service is self service. Constantly empower customers to get their own answers themselves.”

― Dan Pena

“I just don’t believe in the basic concept that someone should make their whole career in public service.”

― Dan Quayle

“When a Mormon knocks, they say, ‘Can I teach you about Jesus Christ?’ And if you say no, they’ll say, ‘Then how can I be of service to you?’ So anybody who was smart would be like, ‘You can take out my trash and mow my lawn.’”

― Dan Reynolds

“We’re really thinking how do we re-imagine PayPal almost as a service. PayPal as a SaaS platform.”

― Dan Schulman

“Before I became the president of AT&T’s consumer division, I was running strategy and our internet services, so I was the president of one of the first internet service providers, ISPs, AT&T Worldnet, and running our internet protocol product development as well. So I knew a lot about what was going on with the internet.”

― Dan Schulman

“I do think that in a digital future, consumers will increasingly turn to brands that they trust. Trust, security, and service are even more important in a digital world.”

― Dan Schulman

“Although a great restaurant experience must include great food, a bad restaurant experience can be achieved through bad service alone. Ideally, service is invisible. You notice it only when something goes wrong.”

― Dana Spiotta

“When I was young, I had an ‘aha’ moment in church. There was a thing called testimony service, and somebody would sing a song, and everyone else would join in, finding a note where they fit. During one of those, a light went on in my head. In that moment, I heard everything – Parliament, the Staple Singers, Curtis Mayfield, Prince – in there.”

― D’Angelo

“For me, good service is efficient and discreet; it’s that critical balance. As soon as the client sits down, the communication flow has to start. Customers need to feel that the waiters are supervised – that there’s a system in place.”

― Daniel Boulud

“I realised that you can never legislate away from piracy. Laws can definitely help, but it doesn’t take away the problem. The only way to solve the problem was to create a service that was better than piracy and at the same time compensates the music industry – that gave us Spotify.”

― Daniel Ek

“In order for a service to be social, you’ve really got to start from the ground up. The fact that almost a third of the U.S. population have even heard of Spotify is really because they’ve seen it on Facebook and friends have been sharing.”

― Daniel Ek

“There are millions of people who consume music illegally every month. Just getting them into a legal service will make the music industry way bigger than it’s ever been before.”

― Daniel Ek

“There was a nuisance in the service known as the army correspondent.”

― Daniel H. Hill

“Autonomy: the urge to direct our own lives. Mastery: the desire to get better and better at something that matters. Purpose: the yearning to do what we do in the service of something larger than ourselves. These are the building blocks of an entirely new operating system for our businesses.”

― Daniel H. Pink

“Just as food is a craft, great service is, too. It can take years to perfect the technical aspects of clearing a plate, carving tableside, or pouring wine, and a lifetime to master the emotional elements of service.”

― Daniel Humm

“No tablecloths, silver cutlery, fine porcelain, sommeliers, or deep wine lists – that’s fine. But no service or hospitality? That’s going too far.”

― Daniel Humm

“An image is not simply a trademark, a design, a slogan or an easily remembered picture. It is a studiously crafted personality profile of an individual, institution, corporation, product or service.”

― Daniel J. Boorstin

“I think, like a lot of other people who have been in the service, you’d been delayed in what you were doing. You wanted to catch up and the best way to catch up was to move as fast as you could toward a degree.”

― Daniel J. Evans

“I used to be a pretty hard-core iPhone fan. But over time, I grew more and more frustrated with the lousy service on AT&T. My iPhone simply could not reliably make and hold a phone call. Not just in New York and San Francisco, where I spend a lot of time, and where AT&T’s service has been notoriously bad for years.”

― Daniel Lyons

“One way Groupon hopes to gain an edge is by using software to learn about its members so it can deliver more relevant offers: my wife will get the manicure-pedicure deal, but I’ll get an offer on fly-fishing lessons. The key now is execution – delivering great customer service and keeping everybody happy on both sides of the transactions.”

― Daniel Lyons

“Since the beginning of the internet era, it has been pretty widely accepted that when you join an online service, whatever data you put into it belongs to you.”

― Daniel Lyons

“Google views Facebook as a threat to its business and has been trying to launch a social-networking service to compete with it.”

― Daniel Lyons

“I look at each day as a chance to move one notch above yesterday – whether it’s in service quality, delivery, speed, or any other aspect of the business.”

― Daniel Snyder

“New Orleans is a city whose basic industry is the service industry. That’s why it makes its money. That’s – it brings people to the city. People come to the city and experience the wonders of this extraordinary city and everything else. The question is that, how do we create jobs which are the jobs that have pay, that – living wages?”

― Danny Glover

“The most important thing you can do is make the distinction between customer service and guest hospitality. You need both things to thrive, but they are completely different.”

― Danny Meyer

“Good service means never having to ask for anything.”

― Danny Meyer

“You wouldn’t have the same art on the walls at every restaurant or the same waiter uniforms. Neither should you have the same service style at every restaurant.”

― Danny Meyer

“When chefs like Wolfgang Puck became household names, that became a compelling reason for an intelligent young person to go into the cooking profession. There have been no waiters who have turned into household names. The service and hospitality aspects have clearly lagged behind the kitchen.”

― Danny Meyer

“Service is how product is delivered – the technical aspect.”

― Danny Meyer

“We always go to downtown Oklahoma City to look at all the Christmas lights that have been put up… We go to the Christmas Eve service at church, and we always beg my parents to open a present – just one present – on Christmas Eve. We get them to cave.”

― Darci Lynne Farmer

“My election results speak to my level of service.”

― Darryl Glenn

“As long as white newspapers were unwilling or unable to attack ‘anti-Negro’ forces or to air the views of black reformers, there was a service black newspapers could provide.”

― Darryl Pinckney

“Sports fans have been mistreated for a long time. They have overpaid for inferior food and they have had poor service.”

― Dave Checketts

“In other industries, value is defined by the ultimate stakeholder – the one who benefits, or not, from the service. We should do the same in medicine.”

― Dave deBronkart

“If you want quality service, you have to pay for it. You don’t buy into waste. I have great misgivings about the amount of advertising that we see in the health care field, some by hospitals, a lot by drug companies.”

― Dave Obey

“There are some really good experiments with the youth offending service, joining up youth offending teams with the youth justice board, and good local authority and primary care trusts working together.”

― David Blunkett

“I have a secret thought from some things I have observed, that God may perhaps design you for some singular service in the world.”

― David Brainerd

“Room service is a hard thing to pay for. That’s, like, oatmeal for $12? That makes me mad.”

― David Burtka

“I’m a simple small ‘c’ conservative who believes in public service, serving others, and doing a good job for my country.”

― David Cameron

“The Momofuku Culinary Lab started as a space where we could focus on creating and innovating. I didn’t want us to worry about working on projects in a restaurant; there are just too many distractions in service and running a kitchen to be able to focus on creating your dishes.”

― David Chang

“As a matter of fact, even when I finished law school, I had no notion of public service then.”

― David Dinkins

“Sometimes the better the writing, the harder it is to play because you really want to service it.”

― David Duchovny

“Sometimes the better the writing, the harder it is to play because you really want to service it. It’s hard to be that quick and articulate in life. You’ve got to try to make it seem discovered, you know, not rehearsed.”

― David Duchovny

“It is obvious that the greatest and most important service that is required of our agriculture under existing conditions is an enlarged production of the staple food crops.”

― David F. Houston

“Trump started his foundation in 1987 to give away the proceeds from his book ‘The Art of the Deal.’ It has no paid employees and a board of five: Trump, three of his children, and a longtime Trump Organization employee. They all work a half-hour per week, according to the foundation’s most recent Internal Revenue Service filing.”

― David Fahrenthold

“Search is essential to every service that Yahoo offers.”

― David Filo

“I really want to institute a culture that has nothing to do with shots or minutes or anything like that. It starts with a foundation of service.”

― David Fizdale

“The big winners under the American fiscal system are the rich, who pay some of the lowest taxes anywhere in the world; the old, who are the main beneficiaries of the American social service state; farmers, rural people. These are Republican constituencies.”

― David Frum

“You need an attitude of service. You’re not just serving yourself. You help others to grow up and you grow with them.”

― David Green

“The podcast most likely to encourage you to fully appreciate your food is the episode of BBC World Service’s ‘The Food Chain’ in which Antonio Carluccio talks to Emily Thomas about his life in five dishes.”

― David Hepworth

“From Public Radio International, there’s ‘PRI’s The World’, which is the States looking out at the rest of the globe. Elsewhere, the ‘Global News Podcast’ from the BBC World Service offers something similar.”

― David Hepworth

“I worked in the NHS as a hospital orderly during my national service, and people thought it was a noble service. But over the years it’s lost its humanity.”

― David Hockney

“I do believe we have to understand why reality turned out to be different than expectations and estimates. But you have more public service – certainly many of you – than I have ever had, and you recognize that this is not unusual.”

― David Kay

“The Germans certainly – the intelligence service believed that there were WMD. It turns out that we were all wrong, probably in my judgment, and that is most disturbing.”

― David Kay

“I just have these terrible memories of our first European tour back in 2007. We had hired this van and tour service from the former Czech Republic called Fluff Wheels, and they sent us out with this 19-year-old vegan driver kid who had no money and refused to eat anything.”

― David Longstreth

“While Washington pays lip service to the challenges facing small businesses, it repeatedly chooses its own expansion over results. In effect, government has become a huge silent partner in all businesses, often taking a majority of the profits and forcing many unprofitable business decisions without the risk that it will be fired.”

― David Malpass

“There’s nothing in the world more silent than the telephone the morning after everybody pans your play. It won’t ring from room service; your mother won’t be calling you. If the phone has not rung by 8 in the morning, you’re dead.”

― David Mamet

“When I was young, I overheard a Brit say Canada wasn’t a real country because it doesn’t have any poets. Even then, I kind of knew that was wrong, but I still thought, ‘Wow, here’s my chance to do something, to be of service to my country.’”

― David McFadden

“One of the jewels in the crown of Labour’s time in office was the rescue of the National Health Service. As the Commonwealth Fund, the London School of Economics and the Nuffield Foundation have all shown, health reforms as well as additional investment were essential to improved outcomes, especially for poorer patients.”

― David Miliband

“Turkey Hollow is a small country town in Sullivan County, a remote region of the Catskill Mountains. Surrounded by forests, it counts 10 full-time residents, has no mail service, and no cell phone reception. However, what it lacks in amenities, it compensates for in sheer natural wonder.”

― David Mixner

“I considered our British comrades to rank with the finest men and women of any armed service in the world. And I know that my fellow American soldiers – and those of the other coalition countries under my command – valued very highly the professional expertise, capability, courage, and determination of our British partners on the battlefield.”

― David Petraeus

“I’m heartened that, for the first time, we’re seeing some of the Internet Service Providers and the social media sites taking action against the Islamic State. That’s the kind of initiative that can very, very much augment on an industrial scale what the government is trying to do.”

― David Petraeus

“My dad was in the Navy, and I was raised with a strong commitment to service.”

― David Robinson

“You know, gentlemen, that I do not owe any personal income tax. But nevertheless, I send a small check, now and then, to the Internal Revenue Service out of the kindness of my heart.”

― David Rockefeller

“Most Sunday magazines, with the New York Times as an exception, are kind of sleepy, weekend service vehicles to move living room products.”

― David Talbot

“I think anything which promotes heterogeneity on the Internet promotes stability. Diversity in services, service providers, and separating the layers of the networking stack are all important.”

― David Ulevitch

“If people use Chrome, we make less money on our service and that’s fine by us because that is fair competition. I wouldn’t put Google on a pedestal for competition, but they aren’t telling users not to use OpenDNS.”

― David Ulevitch

“I grew up in Del Mar, Calif., north of San Diego. I got my first job the summer after eighth grade at a small Internet service provider.”

― David Ulevitch

“My life has ever been devoted to her service from my youth up, though never before in a cause like this – a cause for which I would most cheerfully risk and lay down my life.”

― David Wooster

“In all honesty, my favorite place to write is an anonymous, cheap hotel in a city or town where nobody knows me, the wireless service is spotty, and the adjoining gas station has coffee, beer and junk food.”

― Dean Bakopoulos

“My grandfather was a commander in the Navy. He was very proud of his service, and he lived his entire life as though he was still serving.”

― Dean Cain

“I think it’s perfectly just to refuse service to anyone based on behavior, but not based on race or religion.”

― Dean Koontz

“I always felt like if I lived in true authentic self-expression and lived in service and in support of many other people, I would be exempt from having to deal with yet another crisis in my life. I was wrong.”

― Debbie Ford

“When you are committed to living a life in service to the most high, the choices to be great, to serve and be served, to love and be loved are apparent.”

― Debbie Ford

“I’m 78. We’ve lost a lot of our great stars. I can’t hang out with those who aren’t here. The phone service to Heaven is so bad, you know. But I get to visit with their memories.”

― Debbie Reynolds

“It is with great disappointment that I call on Representative Anthony Weiner to resign. The behavior he has exhibited is indefensible and Representative Weiner’s continued service in Congress is untenable.”

― Debbie Wasserman Schultz

“In refugee camps around the world, I met people who were gone. They were still walking around but had lost so much that they were unable to claim any sort of identity. Others I met found who they truly were, and they generally found it through service to others. They became teachers when there was no school, books or pencils.”

― Deborah Ellis

“For documentaries, I think streaming plays an amazing role, but it’s a problem when the one service you initially relied on to have an incredible buffet – ‘Come and see a lot of world cinema, and the lives of ordinary people as well’ – all of a sudden is narrowed down until it’s just gladiator after gladiator – and bloodlust.”

― Debra Granik

“Leadership is service to others.”

― Denise Morrison

“I think leadership is service and there is power in that giving: to help people, to inspire and motivate them to reach their fullest potential.”

― Denise Morrison

“I fully support the goal of species protection and conservation and believe that recovery and ultimately delisting of species should be the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s top priority under ESA.”

― Dennis Cardoza

“I really do believe that was what I was put on this planet to do: to give to people and, through my performances, show them another world – in the case of ’24,’ to show them what a politician, black or white, should be. Basically, I wanted to be a service to others.”

― Dennis Haysbert

“I don’t know if I’d want to be a Secret Service agent. In the movies, it’s exciting and romantic and all that. Really, most of their job is standing in a hallway for 12 hours making sure somebody doesn’t come through a doorway off of a stairwell.”

― Dennis Quaid

“I will do what the Prime Minister asks me to do; that is my consistent approach to politics and to service.”

― Des Browne

“I’d like to have another opportunity to serve. I believe in service. I enjoy it. I also like coming and going, you know, because I think that my private-sector life has contributed to how I think about public-sector challenges and what I do in the public sector.”

― Deval Patrick

“There’s four main pillars to the bow tie – self-representation, service, collaboration and critical thought. You have to understand how to represent yourself and critically understand how to collaborate and serve others.”

― Dhani Jones

“I was raised in a family dedicated to public service.”

― Diane S. Sykes

“The United States Postal Service is the world’s most efficient postal system.”

― Diane Watson

“The criteria for serving one’s country should be competence, courage and willingness to serve. When we deny people the chance to serve because of their sexual orientation, we deprive them of their rights of citizenship, and we deprive our armed forces the service of willing and capable Americans.”

― Dianne Feinstein

“I think if you look down the road for Twitter, we would like to be a company – a service – that is used by billions of people around the world in every country in the world because we feel that the power of Twitter is that it brings people closer to each other, to their governments, to their heroes, etc.”

― Dick Costolo

“Twitter needs to continue being a good listener and recognize that the service has been redefined by lots of people, tweet by tweet, but also come up with its own priorities.”

― Dick Costolo

“We have a core value here at Twitter that says we want to defend and respect the user’s voice. And that’s important to us on a global basis. Someone doesn’t sign up for a service expecting that their sign up information is going to be handed over without them being asked… We’re going to defend our users’ rights.”

― Dick Costolo

“A journalist gathers information for a media outlet that disseminates the information through a broadly defined ‘medium’ – including newspaper, nonfiction book, wire service, magazine, news Web site, television, radio or motion picture – for public use. This broad definition covers every form of legitimate journalism.”

― Dick Durbin

“The Church is not an automobile showroom – a place to put ourselves on display so that others can admire our spirituality, capacity, or prosperity. It is more like a service center, where vehicles in need of repair come for maintenance and rehabilitation.”

― Dieter F. Uchtdorf

“After spending more than 17 years playing for the NBA, in the summertime, I always came back to community service and different basketball clinics.”

― Dikembe Mutombo

“We are all here to be a service to those who can’t be a service to themselves. We can give people hope and more reasons for being human.”

― Dionne Warwick

“I was told by my grandfather who was a minister that we all were put here on earth to be of service to one another, and it is quite gratifying to know that if I am able to be of help to one that is not able to help themselves then I am fulfilling my obligation as a human being.”

― Dionne Warwick

“In my public service, I treasure my friendship with law enforcement officers. I admire what they do and support them in every aspect of their job. I have always looked upon law enforcement officers as my friends.”

― Dirk Kempthorne

“With Fancy Bear, we have medium-level confidence it’s GRU, which is Russia’s military intelligence agency, and with Cozy Bear, we have low-level confidence it’s FSB, the Russian federal security service.”

― Dmitri Alperovitch

“Because I didn’t have much money, I bought a small shop that fit my budget. The previous six owners had closed their business in three years. The store had no people traffic and, because of that, I was able to focus on figuring out how to provide a better service to each and every one of the customers that did come through.”

― Do Won Chang

“Room service is nice. Ooh-la-la, a hotel. At home, it’s laundry and school lunches.”

― Dolores O’Riordan

“I was a full-time mom for seven years. You go back on tour, you’re back in hotels, you’re ordering room service, and you’re getting an itinerary slipped under your door every,day. You’re kind of thinking, ‘Did I go home for seven years, or was that just a dream?’”

― Dolores O’Riordan

“Of course we should harness IT to strengthen public protection and public service delivery.”

― Dominic Grieve

“There’s some kind of dark symbiosis between lunatics and the Postal Service.”

― Don Novello

“Room service is great if you want to pay $500 for a club sandwich.”

― Don Rickles

“I do not think this makes a lot of sense, and I think we should rely on the Park Service to implement the regulations that they have in place with the restrictions so that people can enjoy our parks.”

― Don Sherwood

“If I have my way, I’m going to dissolve the Forest Service. They’re in the business of harvesting trees and they’re not harvesting trees, so why have them anymore?”

― Don Young

“The recipe for success is a tried and true one here in Rhode Island – innovation, reform, public service.”

― Donald L. Carcieri

“Sunday morning church service is not an enormous priority; spending time with other believers is.”

― Donald Miller

“Am I an Apple bigot? No. I can critique their products and their customer service philosophy. But overall, they do better than any other player.”

― Donald Norman

“Enjoy your time in public service. It may well be one of the most interesting and challenging times of your life.”

― Donald Rumsfeld

“No one should be forced to violate one’s conscience, nor should anyone be forced out of service of the common good because there are some things their conscience tells them they cannot do.”

― Donald Wuerl

“My assumption when I began writing was that you were never going to make any money. And you were never going to reach everyone. Therefore you had to do as much as you could in the service of something you genuinely believed in. And if you do that and people get upset, well, there you go.”

― Dorothy Allison

“Without community service, we would not have a strong quality of life. It’s important to the person who serves as well as the recipient. It’s the way in which we ourselves grow and develop.”

― Dorothy Height

“To give real service you must add something which cannot be bought or measured with money, and that is sincerity and integrity.”

― Douglas Adams

“As a child, I was an active Christian. I used to love the school choir and remember the carol service as always such an emotional thing.”

― Douglas Adams

“In 1971, near the middle of Nixon’s first term, he approved a plan to install a White House taping system as a way of preserving an accurate chronicle of important discussions and decisions. Except for Nixon, three aides, and the Secret Service, no one knew about the listening devices.”

― Douglas Brinkley

“Any politician that says no tax revenue or zero spending cuts does not deserve reelection. Our hole is so deep in this country with the debt and the debt service, the interest on that debt, before the big expenses come for Social Security and Medicare – for we baby boomers in a few years – that everything has to be on the table.”

― Douglas R. Oberhelman

“For Google, the problem with being a free, abundant, and rather infinite set of services is that it’s hard to create much of a stir about anything. There are so many major software service options under the ‘more’ menu on the Gmail page that they’ve had to go and add a final item called ‘even more.’”

― Douglas Rushkoff

“You don’t ever earn a right to stop doing anything if you feel there is an obligation to move in terms of public service.”

― Douglas Wilder

“I’ve biked my whole life. We didn’t have bus service when I was going to school in Holland, so I biked around 25 kilometers to school every day.”

― Doutzen Kroes

“I still, at hotel rooms, I do this one sort of not-so-cool thing: continually shoving my room service tray in front of someone else’s door. Because I don’t want the remnants. I don’t want to be caught, like, being like the pig that I was at two in the morning.”

― Drew Barrymore

“But that is a valid, continuing service that that music – which is, in some cases, 80 or 90 years old – is rendering. And proving its own timelessness.”

― Dwight Yoakam

“You try various things when you’re growing up. I was an attache in the Foreign Service for a while and then I drove a bulldozer, but neither of those panned out for me so it had to be stand-up.”

― Dylan Moran

“It’s as important to sell yourselves as much as the service. The business model’s going to change 50 times, and the market’s going to change, but you need to convince that investor that you are smart enough and excited enough about the opportunity that you’ll figure it out.”

― Dylan Smith

“Yeah, my dad was in the foreign service. We lived in India, Indonesia and Africa, and we traveled a lot from those places. I was 10 when we moved back, and I felt like the odd guy out. It wasn’t until later that I appreciated it. But coming back I didn’t know any TV shows or music, which was even worse.”

― Dylan Walsh

“If you are ready to put a product or service on the market, look at that product or service and see how you can test it inexpensively. Keep in mind, you’ll only need one; you don’t need 1,000 to get the answer.”

― E. Joseph Cossman

“The criteria, the only rule you should follow – the only rule – is to never touch a product or service unless, every time it is sold, part of the profit has to come back to you.”

― E. Joseph Cossman

“We will receive not what we idly wish for but what we justly earn. Our rewards will always be in exact proportion to our service.”

― Earl Nightingale

“In 1925, when Britain went back to the gold standard, that was supported by the Conservative Party, the Labour Party, the Bank of England, the civil service, the CBI, the TUC, the Times, the Economist; that consensus was very strong.”

― Ed Balls

“Trump gives public service a bad image. It’s not about flash, it’s not about wealth, and it’s not about hairstyle. It’s about doing something for people and being an advocate for the community you represent.”

― Ed Schultz

“Money is not a measure of a man’s character or success in the arena of public service.”

― Ed Schultz

“During the election, I had three male opponents and we went into a runoff. The front runner for the men was a native of Dallas who had run at large before, but I had a higher profile than him from my community service.”

― Eddie Bernice Johnson

“When the leaders choose to make themselves bidders at an auction of popularity, their talents, in the construction of the state, will be of no service. They will become flatterers instead of legislators; the instruments, not the guides, of the people.”

― Edmund Burke

“Being a patriot doesn’t mean prioritizing service to government above all else. Being a patriot means knowing when to protect your country, knowing when to protect your Constitution, knowing when to protect your countrymen, from the violations of and encroachments of adversaries. And those adversaries don’t have to be foreign countries.”

― Edward Snowden

“If someone wants to transmit a high-quality service with no interruptions and ‘guaranteed this, guaranteed that,’ they should be willing to pay for that.”

― Edward Whitacre, Jr.

“This merger is a logical next step that creates substantial value for customers and stockholders of both AT&T and BellSouth. It will benefit customers through new services and expanded service capabilities.”

― Edward Whitacre, Jr.

“AT&T will not block access to the public Internet or degrade service, period.”

― Edward Whitacre, Jr.

“It is impossible to think of a world in which America was not there in the honorable service of humanity.”

“Living in the fishbowl is hard enough without worrying about a Secret Service that can’t keep mum.”

― Eleanor Clift

“You know, the dirty secret in the Director’s Guild is that the average life expectancy of Director’s Guild members is 57 years old. The stress level is so high and directors are generally really out of shape, cause they sit in the chair and they eat craft service.”

― Eli Roth

“As far as service goes, it can take the form of a million things. To do service, you don’t have to be a doctor working in the slums for free, or become a social worker. Your position in life and what you do doesn’t matter as much as how you do what you do.”

― Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

― Elliott Abrams

“If you’re entering anything where there’s an existing marketplace, against large, entrenched competitors, then your product or service needs to be much better than theirs.

― Emeril Lagasse

“There are many bespoke services in the U.K., but everything’s quite old-fashioned. There wasn’t anything young and modern and fresh. We’re this young service, where a 25-year-old might come and get some great skirts and her mum could come in for some linens.”

― Emilia Wickstead

“The world has changed utterly. There was a time when you couldn’t marry a Protestant. There was a time when you got married that the women had to give up their job in the public service, and when they got married, they were owned by their husbands. That’s all changed.”

― Enda Kenny

“While he was in the service, in the South and in Oklahoma, he was refused service at a couple of places where he was in uniform, and was told that African Americans, blacks, Negros, were not served. And in spite of that, I’ve never known a man who loved this country more than my father did.”

― Eric Holder

“I do engage veterans. I meet with the veterans’ service organizations monthly. It’s a direct, no-holds-barred discussion. I travel to their conventions, where I speak to the veterans membership.

― Eric Shinseki

“I spent five years working very hard to develop a relationship with the veterans’ service organizations. We have together worked some major projects.”

“New York is on a grid system, so it’s slightly less challenging logistically, but Londoners are more relaxed in their selling approach. With that intense shopping service in New York, it’s easy to get carried away and make a wrong purchase. Here, there’s a different flow. You are left to explore, and individuality is key.”

― Erin O’Connor

― Ethan Zuckerman

“State constitutions typically provide that the state first has to service its debt, then make it pension payments, and then pay for services. What we don’t know is whether that order will be enforced. And ultimately, the busted state is going to be looking to the federal government for a bailout. Think Greece, but on a much bigger scale.”

― Eugene Fama

“I have always been very open about my respect for public service.”

“Senator McCain is Israel’s most unconditional ally in Mossad’s machinations, something that even his worst adversaries would have been able to imagine.

And parts of the media will continue to attack public service pensions, as if school meals staff, refuse collectors and healthcare workers have no right to a decent retirement.”

― Frances O’Grady

“My impression is that most women public service workers have a long fuse. Precisely because they care so deeply about services, more than anyone, they still want to find a sensible and fair negotiated agreement. But their patience has run out.”

“Think about when a digital business marries up with what I’ll call ‘digital intelligence.’ It is the dawn of a new era about being a ‘cognitive’ business.

― Henry Kissinger

― J. D. Vance

“My military service is the thing I’m most proud of, but when I think of everything happening in the Middle East, I can’t help but tell myself I wish we would have achieved some sort of lasting victory. No one touched that subject before Trump, especially not in the Republican Party.”

― James L. Dolan

“What I like about sceptics is that in good science you need critics that make you think: ‘Crumbs, have I made a mistake here?’ If you don’t have that continuously, you really are up the creek. The good sceptics have done a good service, but some of the mad ones I think have not done anyone any favours.”

“We danced on the lip of the volcano, so to speak. We were young, too. And New York was still a big, open city where anything could happen and anyone could be star. Rents were cheap, creativity was encouraged, and bottle service was still 20 years away. That was the era the Club Kids came into.”

― James St. James

“YouTube began as a failed video-dating site. Twitter was a failed music service. In each case, the founders continued to try new concepts when their big ideas failed. They often worked around the clock to try to overcome their failure before all their capital was spent. Speed to fail gives a startup more runway to pivot and ultimately succeed.”

― Jay Samit

“We are all in this together. We want to have, I suppose, a single point of entry so that anyone coming near a disability service can get a very complete picture. Government needs to understand that picture, and we need to be able to offer somebody a one-stop shop.”

― Jay Weatherill

“I did work at a mall in college – I think retail/customer service is just one of the most hideous jobs in the world. So I always try to be extra nice when I go into a store. But malls are part of our culture, if you watched any teen comedy in the ’80s. it’s clear that malls are where we live!”

“Thanos came to me while I was taking a psychology class in college after coming out of the service; the ol’ Thanos/Eros concept.”

― Jim Starlin

“Vietnam affected everything in life while it went on. My time in the service made it clear to me that what we were being told in our newspapers and newscasts, back in the States, wasn’t half the story of what was really going on.”

― Jim Starlin

“No, we are not the master of the state, said King. We are not the servant of the state. We are the conscience of the state. The churches or the religious community should be, I think, the conscience of the state. We’re not just service providers.”

― Jim Wallis

“New Yorkers should know that no one in the Administration, at the Department of Defense, or at the Selective Service System is advocating the reinstatement of the mandatory draft in any form.”

― Jim Walsh

“The venerable Robert E. Lee has taken some vicious hits, as dishonest or misinformed advocates among political interest groups and in academia attempt to twist yesterday’s America into a fantasy that might better service the political issues of today.”

― Jim Webb

“The function of combat is not merely to perpetrate violence, but to perpetrate violence on command, instantaneously and reflexively. The function of the service academies is to prepare men for leadership positions where they may someday exercise that command.”

― Jim Webb

“I fought as an infantry Marine on one of the Vietnam War’s harshest battlefields. After leaving the Marine Corps, I studied law and found a fulfilling career as an author and journalist. But again and again, I came back to the personal fulfillment that can only come from public service.”

― Jim Webb

“Staying in luxury hotels still gives me a kick, especially Oulton Hall in Yorkshire. I’d stay in a hotel for the breakfast and room service.”

― Jimmy Carr

“You can not divorce religious belief and public service. I’ve never detected any conflict between God’s will and my political duty. If you violate one, you violate the other.”

― Jimmy Carter

“You can’t divorce religious belief and public service I’ve never detected any conflict between God’s will and my political duty. If you violate one, you violate the other.”

― Jimmy Carter

“People need service – great service where music is concerned.”

― Jimmy Iovine

“A music service needs to be more than a bunch of songs and a few playlists.”

― Jimmy Iovine

“To get people to pay for something that you built, it has to be of service. It has to make somebody’s life better.”

― Jimmy Iovine

“We’re trying to make the music service a cultural point of reference, and that’s why we’re making video. We’re making video for our Apple Music customers and our future customers.”

― Jimmy Iovine

“I think I’m in the service business. I mean, our sandwiches are pretty good; I don’t know if they’re extraordinary. But our service is.”

― Jimmy John Liautaud

“I think my service is better than my food… I focus so much on the service.”

― Jimmy John Liautaud

“A lot of disc jockeys make the mistake of thinking that they’re sex symbols, and then they get a rude awakening. But I always realised that I was a service industry.”

― Jimmy Savile

“Managers of hospitals over the years have been increasingly recruited from outside the health service, and although their experience of running a supermarket chain might allow them to balance the books, it does not mean they have any insight into how a ward should be managed and patients best served.”

― Jo Brand

“Of course great hotels have always been social ideas, flawless mirrors to the particular societies they service.”

― Joan Didion

“The Postal Service’s unmatched ability to reach every household and business in America six days a week is a vital part of the nation’s infrastructure.”

― Joe Baca

“The Postal Service delivers mail six days a week to nearly 140 million addresses. Every year this number increases by 2 million.”

― Joe Baca

“Here at home, when Americans were standing in long lines to give blood after the attack on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, we squandered an obvious opportunity to make service a noble cause again, and rekindle an American spirit of community.”

― Joe Biden

“The reality is that people know my character, and they know my service.”

― Joe Garcia

“My role is to think about what the future could be for Airbnb – and that includes crafting an effortless and easy-to-use service on any platform, whether mobile, tablet, or Web.”

― Joe Gebbia

“My decision to look seriously at elected office is grounded in a deep commitment to public service and my experience – both my own and that of my family – in finding just, practical, and bipartisan solutions to difficult challenges.”

― Joe Kennedy III

“I’m extremely proud of my family’s record of public service to Massachusetts and the nation.”

― Joe Kennedy III

“Elective office and public service are obviously something that have long ties with my family, and something I’m definitely interested in.”

― Joe Kennedy III

“My father was in the military; he was a captain. His service was to quote-unquote integrate the Armed Forces overseas.”

― Joe Morton

“My father was in the service. His job was to integrate the Armed Forces overseas. So that meant we showed up at military bases in Okinawa or Germany, racially unannounced. That made me, in that particular society if you will, the outsider.”

― Joe Morton

“Then when I went to Iraq and saw the strength and character the men and women in our military service exhibit every day and their belief in what they’re doing, I knew I wanted to get that on film and share it with everyone. They are my inspiration.”

― Joe Nichols

“What we do is service a story first, and then you figure out how to pay for it later. If the narrative isn’t your primary focus, then the movie is going to become diluted, and you don’t have a movie that is as good as it could be, so it probably won’t make as much money.”

― Joe Russo

“American actors are very different to British actors who have generally studied and been brought up culturally with the sense that the writer is the star and that their job is to serve the writing. Whereas Hollywood actors are brought up to believe that the actor is the star, and everything and everybody is in the service of them.”

― Joe Wright

“In my early teens, I knew I wanted to do television production. I loved cameras, editing and producing, anything that had to do with television production. My friend had a production studio across town, and we’d go over there at night and shoot and edit. I produced my father’s televised service for 17 years.”

― Joel Osteen

“If I’m successful in fooling a wire service, I don’t really have to do anything else to promote the story.”

― Joey Skaggs

“Power always thinks… that it is doing God’s service when it is violating all his laws.”

― John Adams

“We cannot afford to have any large section of the business world in doubt whether they have broken the laws or not, and we cannot let the laws become a dead letter through vagueness. In this view it is clear that an administrative commission can render invaluable service.”

― John Bates Clark

“Prior to email, our private correspondence was secured by a government institution called the postal service. Today, we trust AOL, Microsoft, Yahoo, Facebook, or Gmail with our private utterances.”

― John Battelle

“You happily give Facebook terabytes of structured data about yourself, content with the implicit tradeoff that Facebook is going to give you a social service that makes your life better.”

― John Battelle

“Anytime Facebook wants to change how it might use all that data about you, in any way, across any service it has within the Facebook ecosystem, all it has to do is change one privacy policy, tell you about it, and that’s that.”

― John Battelle

“I have done a pretty good job of partitioning my life digitally, posting utterances and stories that I’m happy to share with anyone on Twitter, leaving a few sparse comments and ‘Likes’ on Facebook (I’m not a huge user of the service, I’ll be honest), and sending any number of photos to thousands of ‘followers’ on Instagram and Tumblr.”

― John Battelle

“Way back in 2008, when the iPhone was new and Instagram was a gleam in Kevin Systrom’s eye, I was involved in creating a service called CrowdFire. It was a way for fans at a festival (the first was Outside Lands) to share photos, tweets, and texts in a location and event specific way.”

― John Battelle

“’Dependent web’ platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, Google and Yahoo are where people go to discover and share new content. Independent sites are the millions of blogs, community and service sites where passionate individuals ‘hang out’ with like-minded folks. This is where shared content is often created.”

― John Battelle

“In conversation marketing, you’re providing a service, a continuing dialogue whose course through the Web is unknown. The more value it adds to the ecosystem, the more it will be shared, amplified and celebrated.”

― John Battelle

“On balance, I would say that anybody who reminds our lords and masters that the computerized society is fragile… has definitely done a service to the public at large.”

― John Brunner

“Financial service providers act as the lubricating oil in the economy. They link consumers who want to invest their savings for a good return with companies who want to borrow on best terms for expansion.”

― John Bruton

“For anything worth having one must pay the price; and the price is always work, patience, love, self-sacrifice – no paper currency, no promises to pay, but the gold of real service.”

― John Burroughs

“It is a fundamental rule with me not to vote for a loan or tax bill till I am satisfied it is necessary for the public service, and then not if the deficiency can be avoided by lopping off unnecessary objects of expenditure or the enforcement of an exact and judicious economy in the public disbursements.”

― John C. Calhoun

“There was no measure that required greater caution or more severe scrutiny than one to impose taxes or raise a loan, be the form what it may. I hold that government has no right to do either, except when the public service makes it imperiously necessary, and then only to the extent that it requires.”

― John C. Calhoun

“It’s true that the skills required to be a conman are the same as those required for being an actor. Though those skills are in the service of something a bit more noble with acting, I hope.”

― John C. Reilly

“I started out in journalism in the mid ’90s working for the sister wire service of the ‘Wall Street Journal,’ which is called Dow Jones Newswires. Then I joined the ‘Journal’ in its Brussels bureau back in 1999.”

― John Carreyrou

“In 1962, Popjak and I left the service of the Medical Research Council and became co-directors of the Milstead Laboratory of Chemical Enzymology set up by Shell Research Ltd.”

― John Cornforth

“During their service, men and women in our Armed Forces live by a common creed, promising never to leave a soldier behind. We should live by the same principle. When our veterans are asked to travel hundreds of miles for care that’s offered right next door, we simply aren’t living up to that standard, and something has to change.”

― John Delaney

“Our veterans and service members are known for their strength, but when they’re recovering from an operation or receiving emergency care, that strength can depend on seeing a spouse, talking with the kids or just knowing that loved ones are by their side. It isn’t difficult to imagine what a difference keeping families together can make.”

― John Delaney

“No veteran or active duty service member should endure a long hospital stay alone. Yet sadly, due to the high cost of travel, all too often our military families are separated while America’s heroes receive care. Sometimes families sleep in hospital parking lots, unable to afford long stays in a hotel.”

― John Delaney

“So I think there’s a potential to make tuition free at public universities as part as young people doing national service. I think that is the most realistic option.”

― John Delaney

“As experimentation becomes more complex, the need for the co-operation in it of technical elements from outside becomes greater and the modern laboratory tends increasingly to resemble the factory and to employ in its service increasing numbers of purely routine workers.”

― John Desmond Bernal

“Those with less of a sense of service to the nation never understand it when men and women of character step forward to look danger and adversity straight in the eye, refusing to blink, or give ground, even to their own deaths. The protected can’t begin to understand the price paid so they and their families can sleep safe and free at night.”

― John F. Kelly

“A young man who does not have what it takes to perform military service is not likely to have what it takes to make a living. Today’s military rejects include tomorrow’s hard-core unemployed.”

― John F. Kennedy

“I saw courage both in the Vietnam War and in the struggle to stop it. I learned that patriotism includes protest, not just military service.”

― John F. Kerry

“Today, Web services is really about developing for the server. What it means to developers is any set of systems services that you make a Web service you to access by any kind of device with a highly interactive client, not just a browser.”

― John Fowler

“Religion was nearly dead because there was no longer real belief in future life; but something was struggling to take its place – service – social service – the ants creed, the bees creed.”

― John Galsworthy

“We at Sun Cellular will definitely continue our consistent business policy of offering the best value for consumers’ money. Yes, we shall offer the most affordable but reliable service.”

― John Gokongwei

“Evading military service has a long history in American life.”

― John Gregory Dunne

“Many of the basic lessons of business, such as the critical value of customer service or measuring risk against reward when investing capital, have essential application in government, but not in a vacuum.”

― John Hickenlooper

“I was an entrepreneur myself and often say that I’m on loan to public service.”

― John Hickenlooper

“The Civil Service is a vital economic asset to the UK – firstly, in the way it creates a framework for excellence in service delivery and secondly, in how it helps organise the best way to deliver modern public services on which both businesses and individuals depend.”

― John Hutton

“The Internet is the first technology since the printing press which could lower the cost of a great education and, in doing so, make that cost-benefit analysis much easier for most students. It could allow American schools to service twice as many students as they do now, and in ways that are both effective and cost-effective.”

― John Katzman

“The Internet rewards scale; by trading higher up-front costs for lower marginal cost, market leaders can invest in better technology and service. As a result, there is nothing online that is both great in quality and small in scale. Amazon wasn’t originally a better bookstore than the small shops we mourn, but it is now.”

― John Katzman

“I think it is only natural that people have anxiety about the economy because the economy is real. It is their job, their ability to service their mortgage and look after their family. And in the final analysis, nothing is more important than your capacity as a breadwinner or an earner to provide for those that rely on you.”

― John Key

“I certainly have opinions about things, but we’re a service organization. Our job is to try and realize the director’s vision.”

― John Knoll

“In all our businesses, we are out to build local capability in four basic aspects – product line, manufacturing and supply chain, the service team, and the financing and investment capability.”

― John L. Flannery

“The way the films look will never entertain an audience alone. It has to be in the service of a good story with great characters.”

― John Lasseter

“I began writing when I was still in the British Foreign Service, and it was then understood that even if you wrote about butterfly collecting, you used another name.”

― John le Carre

“SIS, the Secret Intelligence Service, also known as MI6, also has no executive powers and operates abroad on CIA lines, but with a tiny percentage of the budget and a tiny percentage of the personnel.”

― John le Carre

“The Secret Intelligence Service I knew occupied dusky suites of little rooms opposite St James’s Park Tube station in London.”

― John le Carre

“Let us also reflect on the honorable service of our men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces currently serving our country overseas in Iraq and Afghanistan, and around the world.”

― John Linder

“I grew up with this crazy upbringing of living many places and always being the new kid in town, not like a service brat where you’re always going to school with other new kids in town. I was constantly arriving in small towns and going to school with kids who’d been together since they were in kindergarten.”

― John Lithgow

“But the fact is, Mr. Chairman, for all the challenges the Postal Service of the 21st century faces, it still retains its traditional place as a key cog in how American businesses conduct their affairs and how Americans all across this land communicate.”

― John M. McHugh

“One only has to look at the performance of the economy to understand how it shapes the perspective of America’s youth about military service.”

― John M. McHugh

“Americans have an expectation that the Postal Service will abide by its well-known, although unofficial, motto – a commitment to deliver.”

― John M. McHugh

“Now that this legislation has passed the House, I look forward to the vote in the Senate that will bring us to Conference, where we can resolve any outstanding issues and make this postal reform reality – for the Postal Service and for all Americans.”

― John M. McHugh

“Postal service of today is far removed from that of 30 years ago when reform was last enacted.”

― John M. McHugh

“Some of the greatest businesses operating from a deeper purpose have a real commitment to service, like Four Seasons, Joie de Vivre hotels, Southwest Airlines, and JetBlue.”

― John Mackey

“Customers want high-quality food, good service, and good store experience, and most retailers fail to deliver on those.”

― John Mackey

“Health care is a service that we all need, but just like food and shelter, it is best provided through voluntary and mutually beneficial market exchanges.”

― John Mackey

“Civic participation over a lifetime, working in neighborhoods and communities and service of all kinds – military and civilian, full-time and part-time, national and international – will strengthen America’s civic purpose.”

― John McCain

“I don’t care a damn for your loyal service when you think I am right; when I really want it most is when you think I am wrong.”

― John Monash

“America has also forever lost the service of thousands of good soldiers who are now disabled as a result of battle wounds in Iraq. Many others will need mental and emotional rehabilitation before they can return to normal life.”

― John Olver

“It is certainly for the interest of the service that a cordial interchange of civilities should subsist between superior and inferior officers, and therefore, it is bad policy in superiors to behave towards their inferiors indiscriminately, as though they were of a lower species.”

― John Paul Jones

“I must repeat what I asserted formerly, that unless some happy expedient can be fallen upon to induce the seamen to enter into the service for a longer term than twelve months, it will never be possible to bring them under proper subordination; and subordination is as necessary, nay, far more so in the fleet than in the army.”

― John Paul Jones

“For me, if I have done my duty, the continued approbation of Congress and the Marine Committee will make me rich indeed, and far more than reward me for a life of service devoted from principles of philanthropy, to support the dignity of human nature.”

― John Paul Jones

“Google, Amazon, Apple. Any number of cloud providers and computer service providers who can increasingly limit your access to your own information, control all your processing, take away your data if they want to, and observe everything you do; in a way, that does give them some leverage over your own life.”

― John Perry Barlow

“Classic nineteenth century European imperialists believed they were literally on a mission. I don’t believe that the imperialists these days have that same sense of public service. They are simply pirates.”

― John Pilger

“Your customers are the lifeblood of your business. Their needs and wants impact every aspect of your business, from product development to content marketing to sales to customer service.”

― John Rampton

“I am always very grateful that I do not have to rely for my meal on a nationalised dinner service working as well as the Post Office on strike day.”

― John Redwood

“I am mightily relieved that my holiday does not come after a long queue with the National Holiday Service, complete with bedroom-sharing like the NHS.”

― John Redwood

“When the telecoms system in the U.K. was made to compete and to seek private capital, many worried that the service would get worse and there would be a further shortage of investment. They were wrong on both counts. Technology was transformed, and investment soared. Prices went down; choice and usage went up.”

― John Redwood

“It is not about the money. It’s the public service aspect. Absolutely, I think it has qualities of redemption. The city gets a second chance. I get a second chance.”

― John Rowland

“As a brand marketer, I’m a big believer in ‘branding the customer experience,’ not just selling the service.”

― John Sculley

“Health innovation, enabled by digital technologies to build big consumer service brands, is an incredibly interesting, complex problem to work on.”

― John Sculley

“Our primary goal in the consumer health service companies I back is helping them create an uncompromisingly great consumer experience.”

― John Sculley

“Spotify appeared nine years after Napster, the pioneering file-sharing service, which unleashed piracy on the record business and began the cataclysm that caused worldwide revenues to decline from a peak of twenty-seven billion dollars in 1999 to fifteen billion in 2013.”

― John Seabrook

“Even if my mother had no qualms of conscience concerning ownership of negroes, her sense of duty carried her far beyond the mere supplying of their physical needs, or requiring that they render faithful service.”

― John Sergeant Wise

“I may have grown cynical from long service, but this is a tendency I do not like, and I sometimes think I’d rather be a dog and bay at the moon than stay in the Senate another six years and listen to it.”

― John Sharp Williams

“The original judgment of the FBI, the Secret Service, and the CIA was that there were three shots. I don’t think that convinced us except as a statement by people, many of them who were familiar with ballistics. This question troubled me greatly.”

― John Sherman Cooper

“There’s hardly any precedent for a guy like me to have the career that I’ve had. Because I grew up the way I grew up, I’m an in-your-face kind of guy. I developed that as a defense mechanism to survive in the streets. I do that in Hollywood in the service of my passion.”

― John Singleton

“The Internet creates as well as destroys. Social networks, search advertising, and cloud computing are multibillion dollar industries that didn’t exist 10 years ago. They are products of the same force that has rendered the Postal Service’s core business obsolete.”

― John Sununu

“Growing up, I was encouraged to get a good education, get a real job doing something I enjoyed, and, should the opportunity present itself, consider public service as just that: a chance to serve, not an end in itself.”

― John Sununu

“Critics might contend that putting former private-sector CEOs in the president’s Cabinet places the fox in the henhouse. But it’s unlikely such executives would expose themselves to the headaches if they weren’t genuinely motivated by the call to service.”

― John Sununu

“The number one objective is that people who make the investment in digitization, whether they are governments or service providers, get a reasonable return.”

― John T. Chambers

“What NDS did is allow us to move into video capability with large service providers or cable providers – and the ability to do this out of the cloud. And that allows you to do it faster.”

― John T. Chambers

“Like a lot of people, I’m interested in public service and want to do as much as I can to change the direction of this country and will give some consideration to that after midterm elections.”

― John Thune

“So ensuring the integrity of the data and integrity and validity of the connection is a very important element in any company’s strategy that is moving towards a Web service paradigm.”

― John W. Thompson

“One Christmas, Dennis Dermody, the movie critic of ‘Paper,’ gave me ‘Rock Hudson: A Gathering of Friends,’ the master invitation list from Rock Hudson’s memorial service. It’s so great. Everyone’s in it, with personal addresses all bound into a book. Someone else once gave me Ike Turner’s will. I get great stuff.”

― John Waters

“As for reputation, though it be a glorious instrument of advancing our Master’s service, yet there is a better than that: a clean heart, a single eye, and a soul full of God. A fair exchange if, by the loss of reputation, we can purchase the lowest degree of purity of heart.”

― John Wesley

“I’d be satisfied just coaching in high school. I turned down a number of colleges when I was teaching in South Bend, Indiana, before I went into the service. I honestly believe that if I hadn’t enlisted in the service, I would never have left high school teaching. I’m sure I would have never left.”

― John Wooden

“Through the humbling dispensations of Divine Providence, men are sometimes fitted for his service.”

― John Woolman

“The highest service that men may attain to on earth is to preach the word of God. This service falls peculiarly to priests, and therefore, God more directly demands it of them.”

― John Wycliffe

“There’s a massive opportunity as more and more millennials and others in cities switch over from car ownership to transportation as a service. They are picking Lyft, and we want to stay focused on that big opportunity.”

― John Zimmer

“Transportation is going to transition from ownership to transportation as a service. What is the best model to address the largest part of that market? We believe it’s peer-to-peer.”

― John Zimmer

“Lyft is the fastest-growing on-demand transportation service in the United States. It’s as easy as opening the Lyft app, clicking a button, and a driver arrives within minutes.”

― John Zimmer

“Commercial real estate always trails residential, and as residential growth flourishes, shopping centers flourish and service the communities, and jobs come out.”

― Johnny Isakson

“Whenever a chef cooks for his own ego rather than his guests, he/she set themselves up for ridicule and failure. In the end, it’s the service industry. Our goal is to make our guests happy through our cooking.”

― Johnny Iuzzini

“I’ve been in the service industry. I’ve bar-tended. I’ve waited tables, and I’ve worked at pizza places; I’ve made pizza. I’ve had a lot of jobs, and many of them were in the food service industry.”

― Jon Favreau

“Basically, if I have no intention of using a service then I won’t bother reverse-engineering it.”

― Jon Johansen

“I will not seek reelection the United States Senate but will retire from public service in January 2013. There is no reason other than the fact than I think it’s time.”

― Jon Kyl

“I found it very helpful not to do the venture round. Instead, I started with very little money, a few thousand dollars, and I did every job myself. I was the first photographer. I was the first customer service rep. I was the first online marketing person.”

― Jon Oringer

“When I decided to run for Congress, I saw it as an opportunity to serve the South Jersey community that had become my home after signing to play for the Philadelphia Eagles. I didn’t choose public service out of political ambition or a desire for power, and never once thought of making a career of it.”

― Jon Runyan

“A bar is a factory, a marketing organization, and a service organization all in one.”

― Jon Taffer

“Congress is full of good, decent, smart people who have devoted their lives to public service.”

“In service industries, we can be so people-pleaser-y that you don’t know how to set your own boundaries.”

― Jonathan Van Ness

“Thanks in part to the Patriot Act, the federal government has been able to demand some details of your online activities from service providers – and not to tell you about it.”

― Jonathan Zittrain

“The Internet works thanks to loose but trusted connections among its many constituent parts, with easy entry and exit for new Internet service providers or new forms of expanding access.”

― Jonathan Zittrain

“I am very proud of my service, and by law, I am defined as a combat veteran.”

― Joni Ernst

“It was only by luck and the blessings of God that my soldiers did not encounter an assault, that we did not run over an IED. And to dishonor our service by saying we’re not worthy of being called combat veterans is insulting to the majority of men and women who serve their country honorably.”

― Joni Ernst

“Due to my work, I tend to stay in hotels a lot of the time, and I generally prefer smaller hotels, as you tend to get better service than in the larger hotels.”

― Jools Holland

“I’ve worked at a Game Stop and had my service turned down before because of the color of my skin. And it’s a shame.”

― Jordan Fisher

“You need more than just a great idea. Your product or service must add an enormous amount of value to some industry. If the idea isn’t completely new, it has to be better, cheaper, or more efficient than what we already have.”

“Service to society is the rent we pay for living on this planet.”

― Joseph Murray

“If a newspaper is to be of real service to the public, it must have a big circulation: first, because its news and its comments must reach the largest possible number of people; second, because circulation means advertising, and advertising means money, and money means independence.”

― Joseph Pulitzer

“So popular is the naval service the only embarrassment is that men volunteer so rapidly we have to work overtime to give them hardy, adequate housing and proper training.”

― Josephus Daniels

“This is the great reward of service, to live, far out and on, in the life of others; this is the mystery of Christ, – to give life’s best for such high sake that it shall be found again unto life eternal.”

― Joshua Chamberlain

“What ‘Scream’ was great at was presenting ironic detachment and then making you actually care about the people that were having it, and juxtaposing it with their situation, all in the service of making a great horror movie. It was fresh.”

― Julian Bond

“My grandmother didn’t live to see us begin our lives in public service. But she probably would have thought it extraordinary that just two generations after she arrived in San Antonio, one grandson would be the mayor and the other would be on his way – the good people of San Antonio willing- to the United States Congress.”

― Julian Castro

“Here is what the world looked like in 2000… there were no plug and play solutions for ecommerce/warehouse management and customer service that could scale… which means that we had to employ 40+ engineers. Cloud computing did not exist, which means that we had to have a server farm and several IT people to insure that the site did not go down.”

― Julie Wainwright

“Along the way I have been able to choose some themes which ask questions – not necessarily force a message on anyone, but at least invite the audience to question things: jury service, dignity in dying, Ireland – and not least because they force me to ask myself questions. Where do I stand?”

― Julie Walters

“One way or another, we need to understand that broadband is essentially telephone service, and just as we got to telephone service in the United States to one hundred per cent, we need to do it for broadband.”

“Megaupload was a dual-use technology. You can use it for good things, and you can use it for bad things.

― Kristian Bush

“When my father became vice president, I was a sophomore in high school. I’d do things like go on a run with my soccer team and purposely dodge the security van.

“Companies like Spotify, the new Apple service, and all the others are really going to have to pay artists more.

― Maria Shriver

“Unlike Etsy, which is all handmade, we print and ship the products, not the designers. We relieve the designer from having to make and ship everything, package it, and provide customer service. All the designer has to do is submit art and keep doing what they love doing.”

“Being on set is really hard because there’s craft service.”

― Marissa Jaret Winokur

“When I see someone in a military uniform I make it a point to approach them, shake their hand and say five words… ‘thank you for your service.’ ‘Stars Earn Stripes’ is a high energy, fun, action show, but at its heart it is all about those five words.”

― Mark Burnett

“The successful man doesn’t use others, other people use the successful man, for above all the success is of service.”

― Mark Caine

“Your customers can tell you the things that are broken and how they want to be made happy. Listen to them. Make them happy. But don’t rely on them to create the future road map for your product or service. That’s your job.”

― Mark Cuban

“For food service industry and retail, I’m for the minimum wage being increased to at least $12. Not for manufacturing. Software and robotics are going to revolutionize manufacturing in the next 10 years. In the meantime, we have to compete with overseas manufacturing.”

― Mark Cuban

“After military service, the most patriotic thing you can do as a wealthy person is pay your taxes.”

― Mark Cuban

“Many soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan suffer from serious, long-term, physical and mental health problems, due to their service. It is unconscionable to cut the already limited health care benefits available to these brave men and women.”

― Mark Dayton

“Having previously served in the regular Army, National Guard, and Reserve, I understand well the sacrifices our service members, civilians, and their families make to protect this great country.”

― Mark Esper

“In the first 20 seconds of talking, your light is green: your listener is liking you as long as your statement is relevant to the conversation and, hopefully, in service of the other person. But unless you are an extremely gifted raconteur, people who talk for more than roughly half a minute at a time are boring and often perceived as too chatty.”

― Mark Goulston

“As a husband and as a father of girls, I cannot imagine any woman in my family making the sacrifice of sanity required to run for office. The limited reward for public service cannot blunt the cost.”

― Mark McKinnon

“Music videos were this lucky career opportunity. They were assignments. I was providing a service, and they were meant to be punchy and gimmicky and fun.”

― Mark Romanek

“I don’t have a crazy rider clause saying I have to stay at fancy hotels. I don’t have a problem with staying at a Marriott. But I will admit that I’ve gotten just basic, regular service there.”

― Mark Ronson

“If you subscribe to any online service, whether it be AOL, Google, Yahoo, or the Huffington Post, have you noticed that you are forced to watch a seemingly endless ad before the video story appears about a news item that caught your eye? AOL and the Huffington Post are especially annoying.”

― Mark Skousen

“The true principle of taxation is the benefit principle – those who benefit from a government service should pay for it. It’s also known as the ‘user pay’ principle. Every effort should be made to link the payment of taxes or fees to the cost associated with the government service.”

― Mark Skousen

“Throughout my years of public service, I’ve listened to the voices of the gay and lesbian community, whether through whispered confidences or public declarations. I understand what it truly means to say that all people should be treated equally, and I’ll always stand up for fair and equal treatment of gay and lesbian Americans.”

― Mark Udall

“I’m old, I’m used to crummy service, I’m trained to get crummy service. To me, the fact I can get through to a call centre and then hold for 15 minutes, I don’t get that upset. My kids won’t. They want to know the answer to their question now. As a company you have to provide an answer to that consumer.”

― Mark V. Hurd

“I know only a few ways to take market share and drive new revenue. I can engineer better products and services, I can build better relationships with my customers and deliver a higher level of service, or I can give my customers a lower price.”

― Mark V. Hurd

“It’s counterproductive to lower my price, because I have to sell more units to make up for that lost revenue. Generating brand-new products can take a long time. Improving service is typically the quickest way that I can take market share. So aligning technology strategy to better service customers becomes an essential path to revenue growth.”

― Mark V. Hurd

“Our mission is to connect every person in the world. You don’t do that by having a service people pay for.”

― Mark Zuckerberg

“Video is growing very quickly on Facebook. A lot of people compare that to YouTube. I think that kind of makes sense. YouTube isn’t the only video service, but I think it’s the biggest, and it probably makes more sense to compare Facebook video to YouTube rather than Netflix because that’s a completely different kind of content.”

― Mark Zuckerberg

“When most people ask about a business growing, what they really mean is growing revenue, not just growing the number of people using a service. Traditional businesses would view people using your service that you don’t make money from as a cost.”

― Mark Zuckerberg

“There’s a level of service that we could provide when we’re just at Harvard that we can’t provide for all of the colleges, and there’s a level of service that we can provide when we’re a college network that we wouldn’t be able to provide if we went to other types of things.”

― Mark Zuckerberg

“This is our commitment to users and the people who use our service, is that Facebook’s a free service. It’s free now. It will always be free. We make money through having advertisements and things like that.”

― Mark Zuckerberg

“I always kind of see how I want things to be better, and I’m generally not happy with how things are or the level of service that we’re providing for people or the quality of the teams that we built. But if you look at this objectively, we’re doing so well on so many of these things. I think it’s important to have gratitude for that.”

― Mark Zuckerberg

“There were some tragic cases of women whose love was abused, who for a certain time procured important documents or information, not knowing who for, what service they worked for, and for a variety reasons got jailed, were tried and sentenced.”

― Markus Wolf

“Most of the results of using technical bugging devices were of little importance for my service. It may have been different in counter-intelligence, where bugs in flats, etc., were used to obtain a lot of information about what counter-intelligence was interested in.”

― Markus Wolf

“I feel that I, and the people under my command, tried to use all the traditional methods of recruiting agents which were also used by other intelligence services; adopting also means like pressure, money, sex – but that did not characterize my service.”

― Markus Wolf

“If the king refuses the constitution, I shall oppose him; if he accepts it, I shall defend him; and the day on which he gave himself up as my prisoner secured me more fully to his service than if he had promised me half his kingdom.”

“FCC Commissioner Robert McDowell has said that several foreign dignitaries personally spoke to him about creating a new Internet user fee to subsidize an international universal service fund at the expense of traditional end users.”

― Marsha Blackburn

“Look at all the marriages that have been wonderfully successful where fellows finished their army service and came home to go to college on G.I. bills and their wives worked.”

― Marta Kristen

― Martha Beck

“I can’t pretend to be objective when it comes to service or sacrifice.”

― Martin O’Malley

“Putting aside competitive interests for a new kind of collaboration, Maryland pioneered a real-time encounter notification service to alert primary care doctors when their patients are hospitalized.”

― Martin O’Malley

“P is positive emotion, E is engagement, R is relationships, M is meaning and A is accomplishment. Those are the five elements of what free people chose to do. Pretty much everything else is in service of one of or more of these goals. That’s the human dashboard.”

― Martin Seligman

“It doesn’t really matter how much of the rules or the dogma we accepted and lived by if we’re not really living by the fundamental creed of the Catholic Church, which is service to others and finding God in ourselves and then seeing God in everyone – including our enemies.”

― Martin Sheen

“Net neutrality is the idea that Internet service providers (ISPs) should treat all traffic that goes through their networks the same, not offering preferential treatment to some websites over others or charging some companies arbitrary fees to reach users.”

― Marvin Ammori

“The FCC banned throttling for good reason, namely that Internet service providers should not bias their networks toward some applications or classes of applications. Biasing the network interferes with user choice, innovation, decisions of application makers, and the competitive marketplace.”

― Marvin Ammori

“Being a ‘monopoly’ is not illegal, nor is trying to best one’s competitors through lower prices, better customer service, greater efficiency, or more rapid innovation.”

― Marvin Ammori

“In 1984, the Federal Trade Commission released a report that explained why taxis could charge customers exorbitant prices for dismal service. The simple reason, according to the 176-page study: lack of competition in the market. The culprit: local governments.”

― Marvin Ammori

“Your glass will not do you half so much service as a serious reflection on your own minds.”

― Mary Astell

“War is hell. Sending young people to conflicts that are unwinnable and unresolvable – it puts them in a position where they’re going to suffer. And yet their experience is that they’re proud of their service, and they should be. Service freely rendered is a noble thing.”

― Mary Gauthier

“If somebody in a family is in service, the whole family is in service. I didn’t know that. I didn’t know our veterans were being deployed seven, eight, nine, 10 times. It’s inhumane.”

― Mary Gauthier

“I did not know that if a member of a family serves, the whole family serves. I did not know that the spouses of our service members carry such a heavy load.”

― Mary Gauthier

“In terms of the breadth of the threat of Al Qaeda itself – it’s not the only terrorist organization, and it works with others as cells around the world in at least 60 countries. You potentially are talking about tens of thousands of followers who can be conscripted into service to carry out a terrorist plot.”

― Mary Jo White

“Faith is the first factor in a life devoted to service. Without it, nothing is possible. With it, nothing is impossible.”

“I want to recognize and thank all Guard members for their service. It means so much to our state and our country.”

― Matt Mead

“The relationship between WordPress and Tumblr has always been pretty friendly: Tumblr’s own blog used to be on WP, WordPress.com supports Tumblr as a Publicize option alongside Twitter and Facebook, our Akismet team sends them daily emails of splogs on the service, and there’s healthy import and export traffic both ways.”

― Matt Mullenweg

“Simperium seems like a genuine utility for our own apps, and for other people as a service. And Simplenote, as a product, I love, and it’s just darn handy.”

― Matt Mullenweg

“WordPress.com is the only service of its kind that not only lets you export your data, but gives you an open source package you can run on pretty much any web host out there to run your own instance of the software. So the freedom is really in your hands.”

― Matt Mullenweg

“Twitter is the ultimate service for the mobile age – its simplification and constraint of the publishing medium to 140 characters is perfectly complementary to a mobile experience. People still need longer stuff, but they see the headline on Twitter or Facebook.”

― Matt Mullenweg

“The Google Voice service is a lifesaver for me. My actual phone number changes a lot, so having a canonical Google Voice number that doesn’t change – it’s actually my same number from high school – is indispensable.”

― Matt Mullenweg

“I don’t think BuddyPress will be something you use instead of your existing social networks… but if you wanted to start something new maybe with more control, friendlier terms of service, or just something customized and tweaked to fit exactly into your existing site, then BuddyPress is a great framework to use.”

― Matt Mullenweg

“Twitter is the ultimate service for the mobile age – its simplification and constraint of the publishing medium to 140 characters is perfectly complementary to a mobile experience.”

“The United States Postal Service has a problem. People aren’t sending as much mail as they used to. That means less postage revenue and difficulty paying the bills.”

― Matthew Yglesias

“It’s rare that you have a policy issue that can be solved by throwing more money at the problem, but the technology to make bus service more frequent and equip buses with GPS systems that provide real-time schedule updates to bus stops exists and operates in many parts of the world. We should be installing it in our major cities.”

― Matthew Yglesias

“That is what I always tell service clubs: If you hear of somebody who is very young and talented, pick them up and give them that little assistance to make sure that they get to the professional stage.”

― Maureen Forrester

― Maxine Waters

“We met in April of 2000, and we weren’t really an official couple until June or July. His family has a fishing trip they go on every year in Minnesota, so he had invited me to go and meet his whole family. There was, like, no cell phone service at the time; people were using those giant cordless phones that looked like a brick.”

― Megan Mullally

“Television is a service, but it’s also a business.”

― Megyn Kelly

“Graphic public service announcements about texting and driving or drinking and driving serve a purpose: to see the imagery in your mind so your behavior will change.”

― Mel Robbins

“Religions based on the principle of service and a focus on the less fortunate help a society deal with want.”

“We were also fortunate enough to engage in our service a Canadian Frenchmen, who had been with the Chayenne Indians on the Black mountains, and last summer descended thence by the Little Missouri.”

― Meriwether Lewis

“For me, there can be no higher public service than serving as a member of the U.S. Supreme Court.”

― Merrick Garland

“Service is the only thing that’s important about love. Everybody is worried about ‘losing yourself’ – all this narcissism. Duty. We can’t stand that idea now either… But duty might be a suit of armor you put on to fight for your love.”

“When I finish a film, I want to feel drained. I want to feel like I couldn’t have possibly done any more to service a character and a story.”

― Mia Goth

“You have Google, we have Baidu. You have Twitter, we have Weibo. You have Facebook, we have Renren. You have YouTube, we have Youku and Tudou. The Chinese government blocked every single international Web 2.0 service, and we Chinese copycat every one.”

“Facebook is by far the largest of these social networking sites, and starting with its ill-fated Beacon service, privacy concerns have more than once been raised about how the ubiquitous social networking site handles its user data.”

― Michael Bennet

“After the war, I went to the BBC monitoring service in Caversham, a suburb of Reading. It was a big aerial system to listen to radio programmes all over the world.”

“Americans have so much natural entrepreneurial drive. The caveat is that it is technology that should be a tool making lives better in the real world, and in line with the American spirit of getting better and better at something, whether it’s curing cancer or creating a better taxi service.”

― Michael Burry

“I don’t want to sound like Disgusted of Tunbridge Wells, but I do think there should be some sort of national service for young men.”

― Michael Cimino

“I want a news service that tells me what no one knows but is true nonetheless.”

― Michael Crichton

“Interestingly enough, my more high-profile things are in uniform. But if you look at my full body of work, there’s a lot of stuff that’s not in uniform. But I do a lot of stuff in the service, and I think that’s just how I’m built physically. It just serves the roles.”

― Michael Cudlitz

“You have to imagine a world in which there’s this abundance of data, with all of these connected devices generating tons and tons of data. And you’re able to reason over the data with new computer science and make your product and service better. What does your business look like then? That’s the question every CEO should be asking.”

― Michael Dell

― Michael Frome

“You don’t have to tip anybody, anywhere, anything. You do so only because you want to, in appreciation for service well-rendered.”

― Michael Frome

“The first thing I would like to say is that I don’t think folk at Westminster – or for that matter at Holyrood – constitute an elite. They are representatives who are elected and who are at the service of voters who can fire them.”

― Michael Gove

“If we want boys to succeed, we need to bring them back to education by making education relevant to them and bring in more service learning and vocational education.”

― Michael Gurian

“Andrew Warren was a rarity in the CIA’s Clandestine Service – African-American, fluent in Arabic, and relatively young for an agent who’d already spent nearly a decade chasing terrorists in Afghanistan, Egypt, Iraq and Algeria, so deep undercover that few of his friends or family knew the nature of his work.”

― Michael Hastings

“I believe we do have a great intelligence service. Is it good enough in all circumstances? Of course not. We live in the human condition. We try to make it better each day.”

― Michael Hayden

“There is no worse place for an intelligence service like CIA to be than on Page 1, above the fold in your daily newspaper.”

― Michael Hayden

“As director of CIA, I was responsible for everything done in the agency’s name, and it didn’t matter whether that was done by an agency employee, a government contractor, a liaison service on our behalf, or a source on our behalf.”

― Michael Hayden

“We spend more time at cinemas, theaters, art galleries and theme parks than we do at churches, and they have become our new cathedrals. We can spend hours at any of these places of entertainment but if church service goes on too long we get impatient.”

― Michael Huffington

“Commerce has changed the ethics of citizenship and the incentives for national service. America now buys private contractors – we used to call them mercenaries – to do the country’s fighting.”

― Michael Ignatieff

“The industries that fall first are the industries that either produce electromechanical items that are now inferior to their software substitutes, or the industries that produce a mechanically created service that’s now inferior.”

― Michael J. Saylor

“Companies that make keys, credit card companies, any company in the service business – anything to do with a consumer is probably a software company.”

― Michael J. Saylor

“So as I look at transitioning to the communication platforms of the future, I see that the beauty of Internet protocols is you get the separation of the layers between service and technology.”

― Michael Moore

“Delaware State began as a school bent on service – teaching education, social services and nursing.”

― Michael N. Castle

“You know, public service is serious enough on its own, and what I’ve found is if you take yourself take yourself too seriously in this business, you’ll lose sight of what it is that you’re trying to get done. So I mean I’ve tried to have the proper mix of being a serious public servant, but also still being a regular guy.”

― Michael Nutter

“I went through a period when I did military roles and played basically someone who was unfit for military service.”

― Michael O’Keefe

“The monastery of Christ in the Desert had its resident hermit, Brother Xavier, chosen after years of devotion and service, a monk so trusted and experienced that he qualified by Benedictine standards to be sent to the front lines in the fight against the devil.”

― Michael Paterniti

“Health care historically has been a very siloed field that’s organized around medical specialties – urology, cardiac surgery, and so forth – and around the supply of these specialty services. The patient is the ping-pong ball that moves from service to service.”

“I thought the Secret Service would protect me from the press, but they were at my house to protect me from assassins with guns, not with assassins with pencils.”

― Michael Reagan

“The exposure from ‘Iron Chef’ has been helpful, but at the end of the day your product and your service determine whether you get customers or not. If people decide to eat out less during a recession, the first restaurants that they will cut out are the ones that don’t do a great job.”

“I sang at the Inaugural prayer service at the National Cathedral.”

― Michael W. Smith

“There’s full consensus in the military that women shouldn’t be in person-to-person combat. I don’t know if we have enough experience to know whether this is the right approach. But women can be elsewhere. We have mandatory military service in Chile. I pushed for women in all areas.”

― Michelle Bachelet

“I’m very goal-oriented. I do see myself doing something in public service.”

“A high-speed connection is no more an essential civil right than 3G cell phone service or a Netflix account. Increasing competition and restoring academic excellence in abysmal public schools is far more of an imperative to minority children than handing them iPads.”

― Michelle Malkin

“One thing I just want to say to the military families – while you might not wear a uniform, I know – we all know, the nation knows – that you serve and sacrifice right alongside of your loved ones. And we are so grateful and proud of all of you for your service to this nation.”

― Michelle Obama

“I want a president with a record of public service, someone whose life’s work shows our children that we don’t chase fame and fortune for ourselves: we fight to give everyone a chance to succeed.”

“We are headed toward ‘perfect capitalism,’ when the laws of supply and demand become exact, because everyone knows everything about a product, service or customer. We will know precisely where the supply curve meets the demand curve, which will make the marketplace vastly more efficient.”

― Michio Kaku

“Service drives a lot of my decisions.”

― Mickey Drexler

“Cops can deprive people of their freedom. They are sworn to serve and protect. They work for us and they belong to, basically, a service industry, laboring in conditions that are sometimes threatening, often dangerous yet interesting.”

― Mike Barnicle

“I’m still one who says that we can get rid of the Internal Revenue Service if we would pass the fair tax, which is a tax on consumption rather than a tax on people’s income, and move power back where the founders believed it should have been all along.”

― Mike Huckabee

“Other bands gave us lip service, but when it came down to it they kind of backed off. That was a little disheartening. But I respect them. That’s their business.”

“I’m going to explore the possibility that my future work could be in public service rather than corporate work.”

― Mike McGavick

“The reason you do this stuff – comedy, plays, movies – is to be seized by something, to disappear in the service of an idea.”

― Mike Nichols

“Old ideas of not trading because ‘they won’t open their markets to us’ miss the entire point of allowing goods to be imported into the United States – because we want and need them and because someone here believes that the good or service received in exchange for our dollars creates value for them.”

“It’s high time for a fresh European alternative to enter the market, taking the existing Internet behemoths head on. What the world needs now is a cloud storage service that is not subject to uncontrolled access by intelligence agencies.”

― Mikko Hypponen

“U.S. intelligence has the legal right to monitor foreign communications as they go through to U.S. service providers. However, even though something is legal doesn’t make it right. I’m not American; I don’t really care about what data is being collected about American citizens. I’m worried about us, the foreigners.”

― Mikko Hypponen

“I dare suggest that the composer would do himself and his music an immediate and eventual service by total, resolute and voluntary withdrawal from this public world to one of private performance and electronic media.”

“Every entrepreneur needs ideas, vision, and creativity – no matter what the product or service. Not only that, but the product should truly delight customers and become an essential part of their lives.”

― Min Kao

“I am not the sort of person who divests myself of everything that came before I came to Australia. I want to take all the knowledge and experiences I gained when I was in England and put it at the service of Australia because I have to bring something to Australia – not just money but myself.”

“We see government’s mission as fostering and enabling the important realms – our businesses, service clubs, Little Leagues, churches – to flourish.”

“Instead of just giving lip service to improving our schools, I will actually put the kids first and the teachers union behind in giving our kids better teachers, better options and better choices for a better future.”

― Mitt Romney

“People of different faiths, like yours and mine, sometimes wonder where we can meet in common purpose, when there are so many differences in creed and theology. Surely the answer is that we can meet in service, in shared moral convictions about our nation stemming from a common worldview.”

“We live unto Him, so committing our service to the Lord is the first and foremost priority of our lives. We can start with our reasonable service: prayer, studying, fasting, tithing, fellowshipping, and witnessing.”

― Monica Johnson

“We have an incredible national forest service, and we have an incredible child outreach program that the president has put together. I don’t see anything wrong with national service for a minimum of two years. If we were to require that, we wouldn’t need a draft.”

― Montel Williams

“I have never had a problem with national service. I am not sure the draft is the way to go about it, but I am positive that you live in a society and you take from this society, which every citizen here does. You owe something back to this country, and that should be paid back in some form of national service.”

― Montel Williams

“I was thinking I wanted to finish my life there in Hungnam doing pro bono service.”

― Murray Rothbard

“I wish we had a system where you are given a bill including service and that people were paid properly so they didn’t have to rely on tips. In different restaurants there are different policies and it’s all very confusing.”

― Nathan Myhrvold

“There’s a stigma attached to being an actor. People from ‘Big Brother’ call themselves actors. There’s so much crap. It’s not about appreciating that we’re here to service the public, that we’re storytellers. It doesn’t sit comfortably with me.”

― Nathan Phillips

“I really don’t think of power. I think more of service to the people of my state.”

― Naveen Patnaik

“I come from a middle-class family, where you grow up thinking about government service. But when I went to Harvard, I saw that entrepreneurs and business leaders were just like me. It gave me a feeling that I could also do such things.”

― Naveen Tewari

“I wrote a song that basically turned into a public service announcement for the fellas out there, like, ‘Should you run into this type of woman, run for your life!’ So the name of the song is ‘Run,’ featuring the rapper ScHoolboy Q. It’s one of the standouts on the album, in my personal opinion.”

― Ne-Yo

“A lot of people out there pay good lip service to the idea of personal freedom… right up to the point that someone tries to do something that they don’t personally approve of.”

“It’s sad that we have become so accustomed to bad service that we’re shocked when we get good service.”

― Neil Cavuto

“I’ve spent quality time in the aerospace community, with my service on two presidential commissions, but at heart, I’m an academic. Being an academic means I don’t wield power over person, place or thing. I don’t command armies; I don’t lead labor unions. All I have is the power of thought.”

― Neil deGrasse Tyson

“Keep in mind that if you take a tour through a hospital and look at every machine with on and off switch that is brought into the service of diagnosing the human condition, that machine is based on principles of physics discovered by a physicist in a machine designed by an engineer.”

― Neil deGrasse Tyson

“Saddam Hussein was fascinated by ancient Babylon and Assyria. He made money available to protect and develop the great archaeological sites. The great achievements of Mesopotamian civilisation were pressed into the service of the Ba’athist regime.”

― Nick Saban

“I learned that most people buy based on emotion, not on a rational breakdown of the product or service.”

― Nick Woodman

“In Japan, the attention to detail in customer service is an experience that is unlike anywhere else. It’s really quite special. I think everyone who’s interested in fashion would do well to take a trip to learn about presentation and the way the merchandise is handed to you. These are skills that no one really thinks about.”

― Nick Wooster

“What I’ve come to find out is it doesn’t matter if you’re selling a $10,000 gown or toilet paper: The everyday sort of humdrum of customer service and retail is the same.”

“With all of our big-hit shows – like ‘Big Bang Theory,’ and even ‘How I Met Your Mother’ – when they first started, you have multiple characters to service, and you want to make sure that the audience has a chance to get the concept, get the emotional arc, and really engage with the relationships.”

― Nina Tassler

“The problem with the mobile industry is that it deals with an intangible service which is largely similar across major players. Most consumers cannot tell the difference between Vodafone and Orange, or AT&T and Verizon in the U.S., beyond the colors and the logos. I suspect neither can the companies.”

― Nirmalya Kumar

“I think that sometimes, as producers, we just service the artists who’s really just the main front or person. You know, our roles are really just to help them get where they’re supposed to go.”

― Omar N. Bradley

“Playing Michael Jackson’s memorial service was one of the hardest things to do because it was literally a few days after he had passed, and Kenny Ortega, who was directing it all, was like ‘You’re gonna come out and sing.’ So not only was I completely shaken up, I didn’t know how I was gonna get through it.”

“Somewhere in the mix, we forgot the very critical people who deliver the service.”

― Oscar Munoz

“Our employees and competitors thought we were docile. We want to be defiantly disruptive.

― Oscar Munoz

“We are dedicated to setting the standard for customer service among U.S. airlines, as we elevate the experience our customers have with us from booking to baggage claim.”

― Oscar Munoz

“It’s so important that we tell customers what’s going on as best as we can. And we’re trying to do that. We don’t often know ourselves, for so many different factors, but reliability, flexibility, and information are the three critical customer service orientations.”

― Oscar Munoz

“I think one of the things that, at least, I found out over – and many have in the industry – is that of all the customer service desires and needs, price is one of them.”

― Oscar Munoz

“At the end of the day, the differential, I believe, on the airline space has got to be about the product and the service that you provide. And again, I can’t express that enough. That comes from people. It is a people business, and my primary focus is to get our 84,000-plus people back aligned, back engaged, and back focused on our customer.”

― Oscar Munoz

“It is my mission to ensure we make the changes needed to provide our customers with the highest level of service and the deepest sense of respect. Ultimately, our actions will speak louder than words.”

“I imagine if Spotify becomes something that people are willing to pay for, then I’m sure iTunes will just create their own service, and they’re actually fair to artists.”

― Patrick Carney

“The idea of a streaming service, like Netflix for music, I’m not totally against it. It’s just we won’t put all of our music on it until there are enough subscribers for it to make sense.”

― Patrick Carney

“One of the important lessons of the Internet is, how easy it is to get things done completely shapes what gets created. For that reason, technologies like Amazon’s cloud service are very important. Even if they aren’t technically impressive, they make things easy to do.”

― Patrick Lencioni

“Although most executives pay lip service to the idea of hiring for cultural fit, few have the courage or discipline to make it the primary criteria for bringing someone into the company.”

― Patrick Lencioni

“My mom raised me with the idea of doing public service, and I definitely want to go in that direction. But I also want to follow in my dad’s entrepreneurial footsteps.”

― Patrick Schwarzenegger

“We’re in the service business by nature, but when we can transition that into ownership things, we love it. Our clients love it, too. We get deluged with offers to get involved with this or that. Silver Lake helps us funnel those opportunities.”

― Patrick Whitesell

“Microprocessors were instantly attractive to us because you could build something for a fraction of the cost of conventional electronics. That’s essentially what we did with the Traf-O-Data computer – only it was too narrow and challenging an area to try to build a service business in.”

― Paul Allen

“So one important lesson of Vietnam is, the first casualty of an unwise and unjust war are the American troops called on to fight it. Their service should be honored.”

― Paul Prudhomme

“The reason I got involved in public service, by and large, if I had to credit one thinker, one person, it would be Ayn Rand. The fight we are in here, make no mistake about it, is a fight of individualism versus collectivism.”

― Paul Ryan

“I lived at the Gramercy Park Hotel for about 10 years. It was terrific. It was a pleasantly run-down hotel of the ’70s and ’80s with a mix of older, rent-controlled apartment dwellers, Europeans and new wave and punk bands. The room service was great, the hamburger was terrific, and they had a doctor who made house calls.”

― Paul Shaffer

“I don’t like the royal family, I don’t like the establishment, I don’t like the civil service.”

“I introduced myself to then-Lieutenant General Petraeus and told him about my research interests; he gave me his card and offered to put me in touch with other researchers and service members working on the same issues.”

― Pauline Neville-Jones

“The BBC’s television, radio and online services remain an important part of British culture and the fact the BBC continues to thrive amongst audiences at home and abroad is testament to a professional and dedicated management team who are committed to providing a quality public service.”

― Pauline Neville-Jones

“Women may give lip service to wanting husbands who take on an equal role in raising children, but many will pull rank when an important decision, like how to discipline or what baby sitter to hire, has to be made.”

― Pepper Schwartz

“The majority of companies using BitPay to accept bitcoin are small businesses that are benefitting from lower transaction fees, faster service, and increased security for fraudulent transactions.”

― Perianne Boring

“With Bitcoin, every transaction is publicly verified, so many risks are eliminated, including chargeback fraud or ‘friendly fraud.’ This is when a customer purchases something online with a credit card; waits to receive the goods or service, then requests a chargeback refund. The bank then forcibly takes the funds out of the merchant’s account.”

― Perianne Boring

“When I came back into show business in ’88 after spending 20-odd years in the civil service, it wasn’t planned.”

― Pete Best

“Military service might sound like a totally different environment, but every experience you fall back on later, it makes you smarter. Why wouldn’t that be true of the military, too?”

― Pete Buttigieg

“Frankly, no issue is worth shutting down the government and denying pay to those committed to public service.”

― Pete Gallego

“Memorial Day isn’t just about honoring veterans, its honoring those who lost their lives. Veterans had the fortune of coming home. For us, that’s a reminder of when we come home we still have a responsibility to serve. It’s a continuation of service that honors our country and those who fell defending it.”

― Pete Hegseth

“From my experience as Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, if a congressperson is identified as a potential target by a foreign intelligence service, that individual is notified.”

― Pete Visclosky

“’Zero Dark Thirty’ is a great piece of filmmaking and does a valuable public service by raising difficult questions most Hollywood movies shy away from, but as of this writing, it seems that one of its central themes – that torture was instrumental to tracking down bin Laden – is not supported by the facts.”

― Peter Bergen

“There is a lot of lip service paid in this Congress and downtown at the White House about family values and small business. Who better represents family values and small business than the fishermen and women on the Oregon and California coast.”

“Your mission is to find a product or service that can positively impact the lives of 1 billion people because that’s the game we’re playing today.”

― Peter Diamandis

“The aim of marketing is to know and understand the customer so well the product or service fits him and sells itself.”

― Peter Drucker

“Suppliers and especially manufacturers have market power because they have information about a product or a service that the customer does not and cannot have, and does not need if he can trust the brand. This explains the profitability of brands.”

― Peter Drucker

“We’ll be launching the new public prosecution service in Northern Ireland tomorrow. I’ll be doing it in Belfast tomorrow. This is an entirely new era, in which criminal justice now exercised on an equal basis, not the old basis in which community division was a feature.”

― Peter Thiel

“The big challenge with Internet financial services has been that it’s very difficult to get large numbers of customers to sign up for your service.”

― Peter Thiel

“Normally, architects render a service. They implement what other people want. This is not what I do. I like to develop the use of the building together with the client, in a process, so that as we go along we become more intelligent.”

― Peter Zumthor

“I see myself in public service in Zimbabwe. I would prefer an advisory role – cabinet secretary, minister of trade or the arts, or something like that. I don’t want to be just a writer.”

“When I’m in the mood for room service, my favorite order is a peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwich.”

― Pharrell Williams

“With an extraordinary amount of federal employees authorized to use 100% official time on behalf of their union, the federal government loses the immensely valuable civil service for which he or she was originally hired to perform.”

― Phil Gingrey

“Once we as doctors are entrusted with the well-being of our patients and their children, it is our duty to take action, to be selfless, and fulfill our obligation to the service of others. I did so willingly, and it brought me great joy throughout my professional career. However, I always had a desire to do more.”

― Phil Gingrey

“My father was a man who didn’t consider himself learned. He was a man who liked to be a farmer. He enjoyed his dairy farm and felt the calling. So there was a dedication. I was dedicated as a child to the service of God, and so there was this continual centering of a greater purpose than your own.”

“If you say actors have a social responsibility to do things, you are right, in a way. It’s a wishful decision. But if it’s done out of force, I don’t think it will accomplish anything. Everybody starts counting how much work they have done and see if they have done their due for the week. That is not social service. You need to go way beyond that.”

― R. Madhavan

― Rebecca MacKinnon

“Plenty of the women who were single in the nineteenth century wrote about their desire to evade marriage. Marriage was scary in a lot of ways.

“A short, glorious life in service of a greater good – say, the life of the Spartans at Thermopylae, or the pilots in the Battle of Britain, of whom Winston Churchill said ‘Never have so many owed so much to so few,’ – that is worth praising. But for glory alone? I think not.”

“I think one purpose is very clear among corporations and business leaders: make profits, deliver high return for stockholders, conquer markets, service consumers and create jobs.

― Virginia Postrel

“Americans hate their cable companies – for bumbling installers, on-again-off-again transmissions, peculiar channel selections, and indifferent customer service. The only thing cable subscribers hate more than the cable company is not being able to get what it delivers: multichannel selection and good reception.”

― Virginia Postrel

― W. Bruce Cameron

― Wayne Rogers

― Wendell Berry

― Wendy Davis

― Will Hurd

― William Bell

― Willie Cauley-Stein

“What’s disheartening for me and to all of us in GLAAD is when it comes to major studio films, LGBT people are basically invisible. And when we do show up, it’s largely a part of comedies as carictatures to service a joke that’s at the expense of the character.”

― Wilson Cruz

― Woody Harrelson

― Yossi Ghinsberg

― Yves Chauvin
