I am immensely contrite. And I’m sorry for the damage I’ve done.
Jayson Blair
We’re so obsessed with, ‘Is Michael Cohen going to jail or not? Is Rod Rosenstein going to be fired? What did Trump tweet today? Did he call the press an enemy of the state?’ We’re so focused on that, we’re missing just the tremendous damage Trump is doing to the decency and moral character of this country.
Daniel Pfeiffer
Unless we address those that are leaving prisons, we can’t begin to repair the damage of mass incarceration and make our communities whole and healthy once again.

B. B. King
Even though there wasn’t much damage, it’s a disgrace that the skies over the imperial capital should have been defiled without a single enemy plane being shot down. It provides a regrettably graphic illustration of the saying that a bungling attack is better than the most skillful defense.
Isoroku Yamamoto
Would offering the Mars Prize damage NASA? I don’t think so.
Robert Zubrin

I hope that in future Congresses there will reemerge a recognition that climate change is a reality, that our policies to meet our energy needs must also deal responsibly with environmental issues, including the damage caused by greenhouse gas emissions.
Jeff Bingaman
We’ve learned that musical ability is actually not one ability but a set of abilities, a dozen or more. Through brain damage, you can lose one component and not necessarily lose the others. You can lose rhythm and retain pitch, for example, that kind of thing.

Human life moves only in one direction – toward disease, damage, and death. The best you can hope for is to remain stagnant or, in certain cases, return to a previous condition when things weren’t as bad as they’ve become for you.
Thomas Ligotti
Any show that kind of relish the damage of its main character without really investigating what that damage does, where it’s from or what it means, is a show I think needs to be taken down a peg.

Unless and until I can see an opportunity of actually reversing Brexit and restoring a stable membership of the European Union, then in the real world I concentrate on minimising the damage.
Kenneth Clarke
I would much rather have watched Jill Clayburgh in ‘An Unmarried Woman’ than ‘Star Wars.’ Even though I saw that movie when I was 11, I related emotionally to being left and thrown in a trash can on the side of the road. Her damage – I got it. I didn’t understand Han Solo at all.
Ryan Murphy

Aidan Gallagher
Artists speak the truth to the public without fear of retribution or damage to their careers.

Erik Larson
I want to highlight that Italy, every year, sends 6 billion euros in cash to Brussels. I cannot give these 6 billion euros to Brussels and then let them damage us on the fronts of agriculture, migration, fishing, commerce and finance. Why am I giving 6 billion to receive nothing in return?
Matteo Salvini
I have written time and again about the damage the Republican Party has done to itself with the millennial generation.
Kristen Soltis Anderson

Sean Scully
Every year the literary press praises dozens if not hundreds of novels to the skies, asserting explicitly or implicitly that these books will probably not be suffering water damage in the basements of their authors’ houses 20 years from now.

Whether a president can truly improve, or damage, an economy remains an open question.
Andrew Ross Sorkin
It’s all about being sharp and not taking too much damage. That’s always the game plan.

John Gutfreund

Sherman Alexie
As wrestlers, we’re not trying to hurt or damage physically our opponent. All we’re trying to do is score points and get our hands raised, so I think that’s where we differ from the UFC, but I think that also the way in which we could address each other could be cool from a competitive spirit.
Jordan Burroughs
You can go to the pictures or read a book, but football constantly comes back into your mind. It’s not a job, it’s a life. It takes up your time, thoughts and energy and it can damage relationships with those around you.
Howard Wilkinson
It’s the subconcussive hits, the constant bam, bam, bam that linemen like Suh give and receive. Those are the hits scientists say cause the lasting damage to the brain, the kind of injuries that made guys like Mike Webster, Terry Long, and so many others go crazy. The subconcussive hits – every single play.
Jeanne Marie Laskas
I’m half deaf. I have nerve damage and a constant ringing in both of my ears, and there are certain times and conditions when I can hardly hear at all.

Ndamukong Suh
Personally, I think that for example the chemical directive in its present form does too much damage to the chemical industry – especially the medium sized businesses – and will hurt our worldwide competitiveness.

Billy Corgan
For so long, black conservatives have not been able to have a voice; people who have bi-racial children, people in bi-racial relationships, it has been so black and white. I blame Obama. His eight years in office did a lot of damage in terms of race relations in this country.
Candace Owens
Back in 2005 and 2006, I argued as forcefully as I could, in letters to clients of my investment firm, ‘Scion Capital’, that the mortgage market would melt down in the second half of 2007, causing substantial damage to the economy.

Prince Charles
If you want to oppose Trump, the first thing you should do is say, ‘I’m not going to do one thing that makes it worse.’ Because making it worse helps Trump. Part of the damage of this era is his debasement and his purposeful divisions. That’s unique in all of history.
Steve Schmidt
We’re going to lose more species, acidify the oceans more, do damage that it will take millions of years – if not longer – to unwind. Exactly how much damage will we do? How deep will those scars run? We don’t know yet. But we will turn the ship.
Ramez Naam
I am not stupid. I am a very bright guy. I know that in the fighting game, you get people who get brain damage and do themselves long-term harm.
Conor McGregor
My mother watched her loving husband look at her with blankness or contempt and sometimes hatred. And yet dementia is classed as a social condition, so that the state is not required to pay for long-term residential care. Calling it what it is – brain damage – is too expensive.

Twitter can be incredibly valuable as an open communications mechanism, but if you close too many things down too quickly, if you think about it too short-sightedly, you could easily do a lot of damage to that ecosystem.
Mike McCue
We Germans have a special responsibility to be alert, sensitive, and aware of what we did during the Nazi era and about lasting damage caused in other countries. I’ve got tremendous sympathy for that.

In our struggle to restrain the violence and contain the damage, we tend to forget that the human capacity for aggression is more than a monstrous defect, that it is also a crucial survival tool.

Anne Applebaum
A child who plays a game of football for one season without any documented concussion – several months after that season, if you subject his brain to sophisticated psychological testing and radiological testing, functional MRIs, there is evidence of brain damage.
Bennet Omalu
What the ultrafast laser does is that because it doesn’t have to just cut from the surface, it’s only at the intense focal point that it does this damage where the electrons come off the atoms, you could actually put your laser and scan it over your cornea and it would cut underneath that.
Donna Strickland
Water-boarding can result in damage to the lungs and the brain, as well as long-term psychological trauma.
Graydon Carter
I’ve had hundreds and hundreds of concussions, but I don’t think that I have any permanent damage. A lot of my peers do.
Rob Van Dam
I regret the 1998 – 99 lockout. I regret that we didn’t work harder to educate our players and our owners about what the damage would be. I never can quite come up with the answer on what else we should have done, but I always blame a part of the problem on us and some part on the players.
David Stern
A thick head can do as much damage as a hard heart.
Harold W. Dodds
Diabetes can be successfully prevented and managed by a healthy lifestyle. When not managed, it can lead to severe organ damage and death.

When you got mechanisms in a car that prevent damage from happening to the engine and that operate under very specific circumstances, those things are exceptions under normal operating conditions of the car; under the rules, they need to be disclosed.
Sergio Marchionne
In some ways, the real damage of Gamergate is pushing the public’s idea of sexism so far to the extreme, that changes in the professional sphere seem unimportant.

Bennet Omalu
That Oscar can be a jinx… It can… damage irreparably one’s relations with family, friends. It’s an uneasy head that wears the crown.

Mike Ashley
I fall asleep to a movie every night! I don’t have a go-to movie, but I like Netflix or whatever I can find. Usually, it’s just noise in the background; I think it’s damage from living in New York, where it’s so noisy.
Elsa Hosk
What we don’t need to work toward is polarizing America any greater than it is. Look, I’m up here in Washington, D.C., in the Congress of the United States, and we have, all day, a lot of verbal vomit that is doing enormous damage.
Emanuel Cleaver
We have already seen Iran sending spoofed emails, designed to intimated voters, incite social unrest and damage President Trump.

Tatiana Schlossberg
Developing countries can make great strides towards more progressive and effective taxation and spending through action within their own borders.

Winnie Byanyima
We don’t want to damage cars. People work hard and save money to buy these things.

I think that women really entwine with the people that they become close to in a way that men don’t – and so, when they are forced to disentwine, you can’t remove the vines without doing some damage.
Gillian Flynn
The sound levels on stage were so loud with all that constant banging and smash, smash, smash; it did untold damage to the fine nerve endings in the inner ear, though it is worse in the left, which is the side of my snare drum and the monitor.
Roger Taylor
You can do a lot of damage if you try to answer a question part-way.
Mike Lee
Katrina did much more damage than anything the terrorists could ever put together.
Hamza Yusuf
Pollution from human activities is changing the Earth’s climate. We see the damage that a disrupted climate can do: on our coasts, our farms, forests, mountains, and cities. Those impacts will grow more severe unless we start reducing global warming pollution now.
Frances Beinecke
Since environmental and health damage is not factored into reducing GDP – and in fact the resulting health costs and the costs of cleaning up the environment would also inflate GDP, a GDP obsessed government would try and dismantle environmental and health regulations.

I’m not going to do anything that will damage my voice because my voice is my career and singing is my passion. I was singing in the cot and I’ll still be singing when they’re nailing down my coffin.

Steven Pinker
Cops on the beat can stop problems before the damage spreads.
Elizabeth Warren
Regulatory reform must move beyond limiting the damage that the financial sector can do and ensure that the sector genuinely serves society.

Callum McDougall
The laws imposed by Brussels damage Italian artisans, traders, pensioners, but hey, Europe is asking, so we have to obey. Come on, if Europe asks me to throw myself in a well, I’m not going to do that just because Europe is asking me to, am I?
Matteo Salvini
As an anthropologist, I believe strongly in our common humanity. We can rise above the tribal divisions that have caused so much anguish and real damage in the past.

James J. Gibson
My project was radiation damage of Si and Ge by energetic electrons, critical for the use of the recently developed semiconductor devices for applications in outer space.
Walter Kohn
Who, adult or child, is Michael Jackson truly close to? What and who is he trying to flee? What’s the nature of the psychic damage he has so clearly sustained? I suspect his racial identity is more a byproduct of that damage than the primal cause.
Margo Jefferson
Generally, the real question in a midterm year is whether the damage for the ruling party will be severe or mild.
Steve Kornacki
Not only will a carbon fee reduce carbon emissions, it will force big polluters to pay for the damage their pollution does to public health and the environment, generating billions in new revenue for the American people.
Sheldon Whitehouse
Football is an elective. It’s a game. It’s make-believe. And to think that people have brain damage from some made-up game.

Michael Greger
Under our rules of engagement, if I were ISIS, what I would do is collocate my headquarters next to a school or a hospital and ensure that there would be collateral damage. They know our rules of engagement as well as we do. They operate with impunity.
Ryan Zinke
Yes, the concept that blunt-force trauma of the head causes brain damage is a generally accepted principle of medicine. That is why I was so appalled by the NFL doctors who were denying my work.
Bennet Omalu
I mean, Iceland is Iceland. It can’t do damage to anybody unless you’re Icelandic. But the United States can drag down the entire western economy. And I think what we are seeing is simply a reflection of reality. This is not, I’m sorry, but this is not a AAA nation.
Mark Steyn
It’s true that Blake was emotionally disturbed – always has been – but he doesn’t have murder in his heart. If he was going to do any damage to anything or anyone, it would be to himself.
Tommy Bond
There’s a popular saying that the Internet interprets censorship as damage and routes around it. Desire and innovation will trump policy, the argument goes, as clever programmers circumvent controls.

Eric Metaxas
Where does personality end and brain damage begin?
Douglas Coupland
Sometimes people damage paintings or sculpture because they love it. They throw their arms around a statue in a fit of hysterical passion and it falls over.

Children malnourished at age 5 tend to suffer permanent physical and mental damage. So if I can save a child from malnutrition, I find it has an extremely favorable risk-reward ratio – the cost I incur versus the overall benefit that I can bring to society.
Rakesh Jhunjhunwala
In an interview with a journalist, you look petty taking the pot shot but in a slick ad you can really do damage – including unfair damage – from afar. It is not that much different than waging a war by a drone than by hand-to-hand combat.

All an agent is going to do is buy things for a player, damage his eligibility, and make the player dependent on them.
Lou Holtz
I wasn’t a hacker for the money, and it wasn’t to cause damage.

Kate Hudson
Come election time, black and white politicians put on their costumes of compassion and care, shake black hands, kiss black babies, sing ‘We Shall Overcome’ in black , and pray that we will ignore the reality of everyday suffering and the damage that is being done to our future in exchange for our votes.
Salim Akil

Floor Jansen
The question was, ‘Is there a way of minimizing the amount of damage you’re doing so that you can then study cells in a physiological manner while also studying them at high spatial and temporal resolution for a long time?’
Eric Betzig
Getting toxic lead out of gasoline, the oil industry shouted, would cost a dollar a gallon. It turned out to cost just a penny a gallon to protect hundreds of thousands of kids from lead-induced brain damage.

I have permanent damage to my facial nerves. I went to the UCLA Movement Disorder Clinic, and after two years of tests and constant monitoring they have finally found the right medication that keeps the spasms under control.
Gabrielle Carteris
If we continue to print new paychecks at the rate we’ve been adding them, that mitigates a lot of the damage of higher gasoline prices.
Jerry A. Webman
Ay – ‘The Green Fool’ business, the libel action over the head of it – did me a lot of damage. It destroyed the momentum.
Patrick Kavanagh
The bicycle is a former child’s toy that has now been elevated to icon status because, presumably, it can move the human form from pillar to post without damage to the environment.
Brock Yates
Given that all our lives rest on work that defines us, the business of labor, the wealth that work manifests itself to, I find it odd that not much is written about it. We talk about relationships, damage, adultery, revolution, but we don’t talk about work.
Neel Mukherjee
I am announcing my resignation from Congress so my colleagues can get back to work, my neighbors can choose a new representative and most importantly that my wife and I can continue to heal from the damage I have caused.
Anthony Weiner
Using a big word like ‘plagiarism’… always causes some damage. It will always do lasting damage, like accusations of racism.
Michel Houellebecq

Richard D. Zanuck
All the good work in the world will not compensate for the damage that a single facet of the business, or a rogue individual, can do. Insider trading, environmental damage, human-rights violations, and opportunistic practices erode trust and result in net negative impact.
Punit Renjen
All too often, government’s response to social breakdown has been a classic case of ‘patching’ – a case of handing money out, containing problems and limiting the damage but, in doing so, supporting – even reinforcing – dysfunctional behaviour.
Iain Duncan Smith
Think about how your jeans would look if you washed and dried them every single day. That’s like our hair, and you can’t change your hair as often as your pants, so cutting down on washing cuts down on long-term damage.
Jonathan Van Ness
Too much collagen will damage the skin. You will get collagen overload.
Chris Toumazou
Those who claim that to leave the E.U. would damage the City are the very same as those who in the past confidently predicted, with a classic failure of understanding, that the City would be gravely damaged if the U.K. failed to adopt the euro as its currency.
Nigel Lawson
Measles may not spread as fast as erroneous sound bites and tweets, but they both have the potential to cause a great amount of damage.
Bill Foster

Aubrey de Grey
When you give away large sums of money, you can cause as much damage as you may do good.

Nigel Mansell
After the age of 40, human beings are prone to various infection, diseases and physical damage. Engaging in regular exercise is the only way to combat such issues.

Tony Bellew
Nuclear power plants built in the areas usually thought of as earthquake zones, such as the California coastline, have a surprisingly low risk of damage from those earthquakes. Why? They built anticipating a major quake.
Bill Dedman
A long break can cause long-term damage to a player’s technique. It can be dangerous for a snooker player to go 2-3 months without even touching a cue.

Mary-Louise Parker
I don’t think you should ever damage other people for your art.
Carey Mulligan
Mitch McConnell has, as much as anyone, done great damage to the United States Senate as an institution that was once known as the world’s greatest deliberative body.

Betty Boothroyd
I had nerve damage. It was going to lead to amputation. I had high blood pressure, high cholesterol.
Eric Adams
It’s time to review what damage the Supreme Court ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission has done to our political system.
Bob Beckel
Mankind has probably done more damage to the Earth in the 20th century than in all of previous human history.
Jacques Yves Cousteau
Occasionally we have to interpret an international treaty – one, perhaps, affecting airlines and liability for injury to passengers or damage to goods. Then, of course, we have to look to the precedents of other member nations in resolving issues.
Sandra Day O’Connor
The Bible declares that on the sixth day God created man. Right then and there, God should have demanded a damage deposit.
Jim Hightower
No NSA director did as much damage to the agency as Gen. Michael V. Hayden.
William Binney
As usual sparring goes: men represent strikes, touch each other, but do not tend to cause real damage to the partner.
Andrei Arlovski
The harm done to Israel is damage done to the West. And delegitimizing Israel is a delegitimization of the West.
Jose Maria Aznar
I don’t want to stick a sticking plaster on it, I don’t want to fix children once the system’s broken them, I want to give every child the opportunity before that – because the system should protect and nurture, and not damage our children.
Angela Rayner
Religion as a whole specializes in sin management. It’s all about organizing humanity in such a way that we cause as little damage as possible.
Erwin McManus
The critical importance of honest journalism and a free flowing, respectful national conversation needs to be had in our country. But it is being buried as collateral damage in a war whose battles include political correctness and ideological orthodoxy.
Juan Williams
Whatever terrible things may have happened to you, only one thing allows them to damage your core self, and that is continued belief in them.
Martha Beck
In our world, in which religious images are losing their meaning, in which our customs are getting more and more secular, we are losing our sense of the eternal. I think it’s a loss that has done a great deal of damage to modern art. Painting is a return to origins.
Antoni Tapies
I oppose piracy and want to see intellectual property protected because that is what fosters and rewards innovation. But SOPA won’t accomplish a meaningful reduction in piracy and causes massive collateral damage to the Internet ecosystem.
Jared Polis
The lesson is, because there will be many lemons in life, to learn to make the proverbial lemonade – and be open and honest. That’s the best way of doing damage control and positioning yourself for success.
Vivek Wadhwa
Thanks to David Attenborough and ‘Blue Planet 2,’ we’ve become aware of the damage to our oceans from plastic pollution. We now know to use textile shopping bags instead of plastic, reuse coffee-cups and refuse polystyrene ones, and avoid plastic straws when ordering a drink at the bar.
Barry Gardiner
If somebody dumps something noxious in my back yard, the dumper is the last one I would call on to repair the damage.
Sylvia Earle
A lot of the evil in the world is actually not intentional. A lot of people in the financial system did a lot of damage without intending to.
George Soros
NASA wanted to assure its ability to examine the spacecraft in orbit for signs of damage.
Marc Garneau
There are a great number of Mexicans who live every day worried about the lack of employment and opportunities. Those conditions also damage the image of Mexico abroad, and that is the Mexico that must be transformed.
Enrique Pena Nieto
The whole art of flirting has simply disappeared. This probably will do further damage. If we’re going to become so uptight that we can’t say nice things to each other, then we’ve had it!
Letitia Baldrige
The worst violence we can do to each other often is psychological, especially in families. I dwell a lot on domestic danger. That’s the backdrop of most of my novels – what kind of damage is done without ever lifting a finger.
Lisa Unger
So if the wall’s cracked or you’ve got leaky faucets, or you’ve got mold issues, or some sort of damage to your home, selling a home that’s got that kind of distress to it is the biggest mistake you will make, because immediately people who are fearful will walk away.
Scott McGillivray
I’ve become very interested in the ways things can change even with someone you’ve known for many years and you’ve committed to for life. How drastic can you damage things in the way you speak to someone?
Jenny Slate
I think you can do as much damage to yourself going to the gym and running as you do good. So my mission in life is just to keep myself ‘good’ – in good health, as fit as I can be, a little bit of stretching, and just think positive and enjoy life.
Anita Dobson
I do a lot of damage to my hair every day because of my work. I just noticed this huge change. It started getting thinner and it started falling out. I hit 30, and I literally felt like I was balding!
Vanessa Lachey
Micronutrient-poor foods, like pasta, sugar, and soda, don’t just give you empty calories and make you fat; they also do damage to the body and cause disease.
Joel Fuhrman
It’s something I’ve seen a lot of: these tortured geniuses, or self-proclaimed tortured geniuses, who kind of take their damage out on others. I think being a showrunner, you have a lot of unchecked power and I think that can be a very dangerous thing.
Raphael Bob-Waksberg
That attitude that fighting is probably not fair, but you have to defend yourself anyway and damage the enemy, has been profoundly consequential as far as my political activism goes.
June Jordan
As the mother of a grown son with a traumatic brain injury, I couldn’t be more excited about the prospect of finding out how to repair even a small part of the damage that changed his life.
Judy Woodruff
The professional must learn to be moved and touched emotionally, yet at the same time stand back objectively: I’ve seen a lot of damage done by tea and sympathy.
Anthony Storr
The worst damage a person – a fighter or even a person that’s just everyday living – is shorten your life by your lifestyle.
Bernard Hopkins
The ‘Russia collusion’ narrative caused untold damage to the Trump administration and its policy goals. It sparked a years-long special counsel probe that pursued scores of Trump associates but found none who had colluded with Russia to steal the 2016 election.
Mollie Hemingway
I think women’s tennis is so open. Anyone in the top 30 can do damage in the big tournaments.
Ashleigh Barty
The most important thing to understand about Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris Climate Change agreement is, whilst it undeniably damages the rest of the world, it does most damage to America itself.
Barry Gardiner
Just as food eaten without appetite is a tedious nourishment, so does study without zeal damage the memory by not assimilating what it absorbs.
Leonardo da Vinci
When my coach gives me a program, I damage it.
Yohan Blake
The pace of global warming is accelerating and the scale of the impact is devastating. The time for action is limited – we are approaching a tipping point beyond which the opportunity to reverse the damage of CO2 emissions will disappear.
Eliot Spitzer
The Chip also reduces the damage done by bandits. They still steal drinks and cheers along the course, but no longer scramble the paying runners’ results. No entry fee, no Chip, no time or place.
Joe Henderson
I generally encourage people to make good on debts when they have enough money to repay them. But once a delinquency has been reported to a collection agency, paying it off won’t help your FICO score. The damage has already been done, and the blemish will remain on your credit report for seven years.
Suze Orman
Some of us believe, with good reasons, that the Republicans are ‘mad-dogging’ Hillary Clinton with the Benghazi hearing to damage not only her presidential prospects, but also to damage President Obama’s credibility.
Donna Brazile
Yes, I’m doing damage to my body now. The human body isn’t designed to be this size.
Eddie Hall
I have permanent damage to my body because I wanted to be thin.
Margaret Cho
A short telomere represents a persistent and non-repairable damage to the cells, which is able to prevent their division or regeneration.
María Blasco Marhuenda
We are presented with a unique situation in the black community in that we have embraced the beauty of hip hop, the real rawness of it, the real fun of it, but we also have to address the damage it has done. We have to look at what it’s done to our black girls, especially when it comes to domestic violence.
Tamron Hall
The human brain is at particularly high risk for damage by free radicals because of its high degree of metabolism compared to other tissues, while lacking the levels of antioxidant protection found elsewhere in the body.
David Perlmutter
I’ve got two artificial knees, I have an artificial shoulder, and I’m reasonably healthy given the damage I’ve done to myself. Everything hurts.
Brian Dennehy
But I know that trying to black out my past with oblivion will just damage my future. I made the decision to stop running from my fears, and to walk slowly and deliberately towards self-nurture, self-respect, and better mental and physical health.
Jack Monroe
I’ve often said that far more sensible than a ‘make poverty history’ campaign would be a ‘make wealth history’ campaign. It is, after all, the wealthy people who do all the damage. The less money you earn, the fewer resources you use up.
Tom Hodgkinson
Most damage that others do us is out of fear, humiliation and pain. Those feelings occur in all of us, not just in those of us who profess a certain religious or racial devotion.
Alice Walker
I am one of many people documenting damage and looting at ancient sites from space – it is such a crucial tool.
Sarah Parcak
PM Modi’s irresponsible behaviour and an overzealous Supreme Court will damage the Indian federal structure.
I think I’m connected to this issue in some capacity, football and brain damage. So carving out a way to address it tactfully is important to me no matter what I go on to do.
Chris Borland
If money is not maintained, it can collapse like a bridge along Interstate 5 and fixing it, even with determined politicians, will take ages, during which time God only knows how much human damage will occur.
Douglas Coupland
The trends that are shaping the twenty-first-century world embody both promise and peril. Globalization, for example, has lifted hundreds of millions of people out of poverty while contributing to social fragmentation and a massive increase in inequality, not to mention serious environmental damage.
Klaus Schwab
In all the debate about Afghanistan, we don’t hear much about our obligation to the wretched lives of Afghan women. They are being treated as collateral damage as the big boys discuss geopolitical goals.
Tina Brown
Hurricane Katrina, coupled with Hurricane Rita, which came promptly on Katrina’s heels, claimed more than 1,200 American lives. Together, they caused more than $200 billion in damage.
Ellen Tauscher
The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.
John Gilmore
When you get blamed for something you haven’t done, it brings collateral damage.
Raj Kundra
The higher the surface area-to-volume ratio of a given amount of meat, the more efficiently it will freeze and the less damage it will suffer.
J. Kenji Lopez-Alt
The time has come for the American government to recognize the damage that has occurred to our economy, and to take firm action to curtail what I believe is both unfair and illegal foreign competition.
Norm Dicks
Mr. Macri’s government caused damage similar to what Argentina suffered in 2001: a debt default, no foreign-currency reserves, a steep devaluation and increased poverty.
Alberto Fernandez
The second is the damage to the credibility and independence of a free press which may be caused by covert relationships with the U.S. journalists and media organizations.
Frank Church
Many of the environmental rules not only fail to protect the natural environment, they actually increase the damage.
Michael J. Knowles
The horrific damage of 9/11 did not end when those buildings came down.
Kirsten Gillibrand
We want to detect malware, regardless of its source or purpose. Politics don’t even enter the discussion, nor should they. Any malware, even targeted, can get out of hand and cause ‘collateral damage’ to machines that aren’t the intended victim.
Mikko Hypponen
The bee collects honey from flowers in such a way as to do the least damage or destruction to them, and he leaves them whole, undamaged and fresh, just as he found them.
Saint Francis de Sales
Ronald Reagan was a dim hack who did horrible damage to almost everything he touched.
Charlie Pierce
Asymmetrical warfare is a euphemism for terrorism, just like collateral damage is a euphemism for killing innocent civilians.
Alan Dershowitz
The new elites have no allegiances to nation states and don’t care about the damage they do to workers, the environment, or the rest of humanity. They are unhinged sociopaths, far removed from what the Occupy Movement called the ’99 percent.’
Henry Giroux
Humans are the big thing that cause damage in life – in war or whatever – and if I can get away from that and into a wilderness situation, I’m OK. You can more or less live on your own merit.
Gary Paulsen
The contemporary notion that it’s somehow inherently bad for a film to be ‘talky’ has done grave damage to the culture of American movie-making, enough so that a growing number of people, myself among them, have all but given up on Hollywood.
Terry Teachout
Each year, at the typical nuclear reactor in the U.S., there’s a 1 in 74,176 chance of an earthquake strong enough to cause damage to the reactor’s core, which could expose the public to radiation. No tsunami required.
Bill Dedman
Systems are complex, so controlling an attack and achieving a desired level of damage may be harder than using physical weapons.
Dorothy Denning
Scientists are doing an awful lot of damage to the world in the name of helping it. I don’t mind attacking my own fraternity because I am ashamed of it.
Kary Mullis
A Brexit with a poor outcome will damage our country and lead to years of further division.
Dominic Grieve
I think the Tories are doing – and are intent on doing – damage to things I hold dear.
Nicola Sturgeon
I had such severe nerve damage that I didn’t get the nerves all the way back. My pinky toe on my left foot is still numb, and I feel it when I’m in bed at night or when I’m by myself. That pins-and-needles feeling reminds me that life is precious, and don’t take for granted what you have.
Daniel Jacobs
A lot of my friends are gangsters. Not like gangsters – well, yeah, all sorts of levels of criminality – but not the types that are preying on innocent people. I have no interest in the type of criminality that has no respect for collateral damage.
Charlie Hunnam
The quickest time to rehydrate is right after you’re done training, so I’m always carrying these gallons of water to drink, drink, drink so my body can recover faster. And that’s a huge part of being able to take damage, by the way. If you’re hydrated, your brain is lubricated, you can take bigger shots.
Cody Garbrandt
Even now with the operation, with the damage done, my ankle probably is never going to be back to 100 per cent.
Casey Stoner
This bill is the legislative equivalent of crack. It yields a short-term high but does long-term damage to the system and it’s expensive to boot.
Barney Frank
If you lose a race or game in hockey, you lose a game. That’s it. If you lose a fight you might lose part of your brain because of the damage.
Georges St-Pierre
The scientists who attack mainstream religion, rather than striving for peaceful coexistence with it, damage science, and also weaken the fight against fundamentalism.
Martin Rees
Theatre is about people, not buildings. Incalculable damage has been done to the expert talent a company needs – from wardrobe to lighting technicians.
Edward Hall
Terrorist bombings, like rampage shootings, are events that maximize the amount of publicity per amount of damage. That’s why people do them, because they know they will set off a media frenzy.
Steven Pinker
President Obama has never summarized the Obama Doctrine with such clarity, but here is what it would look like: ‘I will undertake any military attack against our enemies, regardless of the risks and collateral damage, so long as it is over by the time I have to announce it.’
Elliott Abrams
‘Moonlight’ undoes our expectations as viewers, and as human beings, too. As we watch, another movie plays in our minds: real-life footage of the many forms of damage done to black men, which can sometimes lead them to turn that hateful madness on their own kind, passing on the poison that was their inheritance.
Hilton Als
Shoes and clothing damage our ability to survive naked in the wilderness.
Steve Mann
Careful writing is important for many reasons, not least that intelligent but hurried reporters will trust the presser, resulting in a cascade of secondary damage.
Dave deBronkart
By the time a kid goes to college, if he’s taking math or science, at least he knows, or you hope he knows, some basics. But if you’re teaching history in college, you have a lot of damage to undo. You basically have to start over because so much of what a kid has already learned is just wrong.
Chris Crutcher
Perhaps the surest test of an individual’s integrity is his refusal to do or say anything that would damage his self-respect.
Thomas S. Monson
It’s also much clearer how much damage the occupation of Iraq is doing to America’s reputation and prestige around the world; and that’s just starting now to hit home in the United States.
Peter Singer
Pray for Trump’s sanity and clarity, because his power to cause real damage to our country is enormous.
Marianne Williamson
It is an interesting fact that during my tour I was never allowed access to computers, radios, or anything else that I might damage through curiosity, or perhaps something more sinister.
Robert B. Laughlin
Toxins love to get you while you’re young. Lead, mercury, secondhand smoke and sundry other environmental nasties do a lot more damage when tissue is immature, vulnerable and growing than when it’s mature and comparatively fixed.
Jeffrey Kluger
Without the U.S. leading the way in trade negotiations, we likely will see irreversible damage to our environment and widespread abuse of labor and human rights, all while we lose out on the opportunity to expand our economy and create jobs.
Mike Quigley
I lost my spleen, I lost the hearing in my left ear, so I had a lot of internal organ damage.
Amy Purdy
I try to inflict as much damage as possible, at all costs.
Carlos Condit
Ever since I became a Muslim, I’ve had to deal with attempts to damage my reputation and countless insinuations seeking to cast doubt on my character and trying to connect me to causes which I do not subscribe to.
Cat Stevens
Everyone is going to binge on a diet, for instance, so plan for it, schedule it, and contain the damage.
Tim Ferriss
Basically, the body does have a vast amount of inbuilt anti-ageing machinery; it’s just not 100% comprehensive, so it allows a small number of different types of molecular and cellular damage to happen and accumulate.
Aubrey de Grey
As a story writer, you have work with sharp but relatively small tools, the picks of metaphor, the shovel blade of images, the trowel of point of view, and then you delicately lift and brush in the revision with love and care knowing that one slip, and you might damage an extremely delicate thing.
David Means
Fashionable people can opt out of the fashion stream, but a stylish person never becomes unstylish unless they hit their head on a rock and suffer brain damage.
Douglas Coupland
We should have done more damage to the Iraqi forces before they withdrew from the Kuwaiti theater.
Les Aspin
Flooding is the costliest and most common cause of property damage, which is why federal flood insurance should be affordable and accessible to all.
Seth Moulton
Throughout Africa, as in much of the world, women are responsible for tilling the fields, deciding what to plant, nurturing the crops, and harvesting the food. They are the first to be aware of environmental damage that harms agricultural production.
Kerry Kennedy
If strong economic conditions can partially reverse supply-side damage after it has occurred, then policymakers may want to aim at being more accommodative during recoveries than would be called for under the traditional view that supply is largely independent of demand.
Janet Yellen
This whole business of calling farmers all kinds of cheap names, such as Khalistanis, Urban Naxalites, was resorted to by BJP to weaken and damage the farmers’ battle against the farm laws.
Amarinder Singh
I went through my entire athletic life as a basketball player with only minimal physical setbacks, the worst being a couple of brain concussions, one in a college game in 1948, the other in 1954 while playing in the Eastern League, from which I recovered without permanent damage.
Jack Ramsay
I thought I could play the hellraiser and then put ‘Johnny Vegas’ back in his box. I found popularity through self-destruction. The more you damage yourself, the more people are drawn to you, and that can be quite addictive. It is not a lifestyle you can maintain.
Johnny Vegas
There’s not a lot of pure evil in the world, but it’s amazing how little it takes to do great damage.
Taylor Sheridan
Despite the fact that every sport this side of badminton worries about concussions that result in brain damage, CTE, the National Hockey League refuses to accept the overwhelming medical science. Good grief – the NHL still permits fights.
Frank Deford
There is no secure data center in the world; they have all been broken into. We can help you prepare for it and minimize the damage when it does occur.
John T. Chambers
Viral infections, such as mumps, rubella and meningitis, cause inflammation of the inner ear or auditory nerve, resulting in permanent damage.
David Hewson
I will receive no damage to my body that will be long-lasting for a small, insignificant amount of cash.
Bob Sapp
I don’t think any drug that can cause brain damage, failing kidneys, hardening arteries, pain, and suffering should be made available.
Layne Staley
I had some nerve damage that was kind of messing up my grip a little.
Calvin Johnson
You almost need somebody to say, look, another day, in boxing that happens all the time. The coaches will say I’ll give you one more round, if it looks the same I’m not going to allow you to keep going out and taking damage.
Cub Swanson
Many observers believe that the greatest damage Russia has done to U.S. interests in recent years stems from the Kremlin’s interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential race. Although there is no question that Moscow’s meddling in American elections is deeply worrying, it is just one aspect of the threat Russia poses.
Ivo Daalder
I think having toured the world and seeing many places, I’ve just been blown away by how we’ve really scarred our home. I’m as guilty as the next person if not more so. I travel a lot. The damage we do to our planet is huge.
James Blunt
Temperament can really take a toll on the voice. If you get tight in your body with the acting, then you can get tight in your voice. And then you can get tired, and you can damage yourself vocally.
Sondra Radvanovsky
Character is one of most precious parts of you. You can’t get involved in things that will damage your character.
Rod Paige
The internet interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.
John Gilmour
I have no formal proof, but I dare not believe that Jean-Marie Le Pen would treat me as collateral damage in the battle he is having with the party.
Marion Marechal-Le Pen
The truth is that a number of us have been saying for quite some time that it was only a matter of time until someone went to a gun show, bought a military-like semi-automatic assault weapon with a large capacity magazine, and did enormous damage.
David Petraeus
Instead of asking ‘How much damage will the work in question bring about?’ why not ask ‘How much good? How much joy?’
Henry Miller
I am still fairly confident we will come out better than the West in terms of our overall development versus damage.
Piyush Goyal
Beauty school gave me brain damage.
When I finally made it to the set, I spent a lot of time doing damage control on The Magic Christian.
Terry Southern
President Obama started with a much weaker economy than I did. Listen to me now. No president, not me, not any of my predecessors, no one could have fully repaired all the damage that he found in just four years.
William J. Clinton
My parents, particularly my father, had been used by commentators, political journalists and political commentators, to attack me, and the collateral damage was the reputations of my father and my mother.
Karl Rove
We’ve become, now, an oligarchy instead of a democracy. I think that’s been the worst damage to the basic moral and ethical standards to the American political system that I’ve ever seen in my life.
Jimmy Carter
I just want to retire before I go senile because if I don’t retire before I go senile, then I’ll do more damage than good at that point.
Elon Musk
In the old days, variety turns like me learned how to cope with failure – we all had nights when we ‘died’ on stage – but today’s youngsters simply don’t have that experience. For them, it really is instant make or break time – hence, all the tears and, hence, all the potential emotional damage.
Bruce Forsyth
Why did we go to war? Why did we pick people from South Carolina, California, and all the places in between to go to a foreign land and risk their lives and have some die? To make sure that Saddam Hussein could do no more damage to the region or us than he has already done.
Lindsey Graham
If accessing the Internet becomes more difficult for low-income communities, academic and employment competition may be undermined, and could damage the prospects of upward mobility for low-income New Yorkers and further exacerbate income inequality.
Letitia James
Indifference and neglect often do much more damage than outright dislike.
J. K. Rowling
Wars breed unfairness, just as they breed collateral damage.
Lawrence Kudlow
With longevity comes, ‘Nothing is going to kill me; I cannot irreparably damage my career.’ Those days are over. The most I can sustain are fender benders.
Holly Hunter
When we violate the law ourselves, whatever short-term advantage may be gained, we are obviously encouraging others to violate the law; we thus encourage disorder and instability and thereby do incalculable damage to our own long-term interests.
J. William Fulbright
Tobacco is the only industry that produces products to make huge profits and at the same time damage the health and kill their consumers.
Margaret Chan
Medicines are unusual commodities. Important drugs can save the lives and protect the health of millions. Their consumption can bring huge benefits, by helping patients to avoid infection and preventing serious damage to the economies of families, nations and even humanity at large.
Thomas Pogge
Dementia is, after all, a symptom of organic brain damage. It is a condition, a disorder of the central nervous system, brought about in my case by a viral assault on brain tissue. When the assault wiped out certain intellectual processes, it also affected emotional processes.
Floyd Skloot
Well, we don’t think for a moment that either the U.S. or Australia are out to damage the New Zealand economy, but if there were a sustained period in which they had a free-trade agreement and New Zealand didn’t have that same arrangement with the States, that could be both trade- and investment-distorting.
Helen Clark
For about 30 years, Halloween was taken over by pranksters. By the ’30s, pranks were causing cities millions of dollars of damage. They considered banning Halloween in many cities, but instead, parents got together and came up with party ideas for kids, and a lot of them involved dressing up and costuming.
Lisa Morton
The bottom line, addressing defense spending cuts with a meat ax like sequestration will damage defense readiness for decades to come.
Ander Crenshaw
Now it seems like people want to do damage to young celebrities. They want to find them doing bad things. They encourage them.
Danny Bonaduce
I never did think I had brain damage.
Leon Spinks
I have seven children. Even if you got a lot of money, feeding 5, 6, 7, 8 mouths, it will do some damage to your pocket.
I’m not here to take damage. I don’t want to not be able to talk. Every single time I fight, I know that… this could be the last time that you’re able to do this, the last time you’re able to talk.
Justin Gaethje
Our reasons for criminalising squatting are crystal clear – we want to protect the rights of regular hard-working homeowners against the damage squatters can inflict on their homes, and the distress this causes in their lives.
Grant Shapps
If Trump is president, I think that his administration will do real structural damage that will take years or decades for us to undo.
DeRay Mckesson
Destroy and damage infrastructure, public buildings and government buildings. Do not leave them any place from which they can operate to damage Israel. We must be sure that Hamas will be spending many years in rebuilding Gaza and not in attacking Israel.
Eli Yishai
It was difficult to step away. I’ve always been an athlete. And to give that up was extremely daunting. The looming factor of brain damage, to me, was too strong.
David Robinson
The threat of extinction is more real than many realise. And the damage done to elephants directly leads to destruction of the ecosystem.
Li Bingbing
You have your assigned sex but gender is more of a construct and I think one that is incredibly disillusioning and I think when we buy into those constructs then we start to maybe, unbeknownst to ourselves, cause real damage to our psyches.
Esme Creed-Miles
Ambition interests me because it’s such a surefire indicator of damage.
Peter Morgan
Bush’s war in Iraq has done untold damage to the United States. It has impaired our military power and undermined the morale of our armed forces. Our troops were trained to project overwhelming power. They were not trained for occupation duties.
George Soros
Despite fearful rhetoric to the contrary, terrorism is not a transcendent threat. A terrorist attack cannot possibly destroy our country’s way of life; it’s only our reaction to that attack that can do that kind of damage.
Bruce Schneier
It’s one thing to break stuff and damage people’s possessions, but when you start aiming at the ideology of America, that’s dangerous comedy.
Adam McKay
Do I think I can take 20 carries now? Well, I think finally last week and this is week was probably the first time I could probably say, yeah, I could take 20 carries and go do some damage.
Shaun Alexander
With the election of Trump, America’s soft power has taken a big hit. The United States has moved from a position of leadership in the creation of a rules-based international system to a position of leadership in its destruction and the creation of a regime of global protectionism. The damage will be long-lasting.
Joseph Stiglitz
Cameras help to minimize collateral damage, and very often, without a camera a missile cannot fire. Certainly, without a camera a drone can’t function, which means that the very ways in which we wage war are determined in part by how cameras work and whether they work at all.
Judith Butler
I will not be collateral damage in a presidential campaign, nor will I be a woman bullied by Hillary Clinton.
Pam Bondi
It’s incredible the muscle damage you do in a sprint. You don’t see it after the line, because we’re smiling. But if you see the tent that we’re in straight afterwards, you just collapse.
Mark Cavendish
There are nuclear weapons in China, Iran, Korea and Pakistan. It wouldn’t take much to send a couple of warheads off on this planet somewhere that would cause a lot of environmental damage, then if you have got someone who wants to retaliate you have real problems.
Edward James Olmos
I had it all: congestive heart failure, malignant high blood pressure, kidney damage, enlarged heart, sleep apnea, borderline diabetic, etc.
Google’s real threat to China is not that it will leave the country. It’s that it will embarrass China and damage its national reputation as a place to do business.
Jose Ferreira
What I have found most surprising is the amount of damage we have done to environment in the course of my lifetime – not even five and a half decades.
Pat Cadigan
The worst teacher in America could never do as much damage as the worst police officer in America. But the right wing has never even been slightly curious about evaluating the job performance of police officers.
Lawrence O’Donnell
We often represent God to ourselves as being able to draw from non-being a world without sorrows, faults, dangers – a world in which there is no damage, no breakage. This is a conceptual fantasy and makes it impossible to solve the problem of evil.
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
The way we are getting parts and services is just in time, at the last minute, into the U.K., and any major disruption in borders and taxes would massively damage the Formula One industry in the U.K.
Toto Wolff
The question was never whether the United States, E.U., NATO, Arab League, U.N. Security Council, and African Union could together using economic sanctions, diplomatic pressure, and military attacks to bring Qaddafi down. The question was always how much time, how much blood, and what damage to NATO.
Elliott Abrams
If they are going to nibble and try to go below the zone or off the plate a little bit, I want to try and get a pitch in the zone that I can do damage on.
Aaron Judge
There is a direct correlation between gardening and mental health, not just to maintain good mental health but to repair it as well – that’s anything in the gamut from depression to serious brain damage, schizophrenia or autism.
Monty Don
I don’t get angry very often, but there have been times when I have been frustrated with myself, maybe after playing a bad shot, after getting out, I have done some damage to some equipment of mine. Once or twice in the course of 20 years – I think you can allow me that at least.
Rahul Dravid
We know that after September 11, there were still terrorists around. We do get continuing information that they’re intent on causing some damage and harm to not only U.S. interests but allied interests.
Richard Armitage
It’s damage to a nerve. It pretty much shut down the whole lower part of my left leg. I wasn’t able to step anymore. It’s called foot drop – basically, you can’t lift your foot.
Michael Chandler
Back on September 11, terrorists attacked our metropolitan cores, two of America’s great cities. They did that because they knew that was where they could do the most damage and weaken us the most.
Martin O’Malley
When the truth does not get printed, damage is done.
Ben Elliot
