I’m not alive. People believe memories grow vague, are erased by time, since nothing endures against the passage of time. That’s the difference; time does not pass over me, over us. It doesn’t erase anything, doesn’t undo it. I’m not a live. I died in Auschwitz but no one knows it.

Liberalism is essentially the belief that there can be a reconciliation of all difficulties and differences, and since there can’t, it is a misleading way to approach politics.

Here is the difference between Dante, Milton, and me. They wrote about hell and never saw the place. I wrote about Chicago after looking the town over for years and years.

Certain artists can get away with certain things. Certain things are acceptable for certain people. It’s a difference.

When Van Truex defined the difference between designing and decorating, he used the analogy of preparing a roast of beef. Design, he said, is the preparation and cooking; decorating is the final seasoning, the savoring.

My point is that the social forces liberals like to point to are real – I absolutely agree – but, at the same time, a good grounding from a family can make a huge difference.

There is a vast difference between success at twenty-five and success at sixty. At sixty, nobody envies you. Instead, everybody rejoices generously, sincerely, in your good fortune.

If you know the differences between an oak and a poplar, a spruce and a pine, down to the needles… you are able to paint that tree with more conviction, even if done with a few broad strokes.

We have such a good time working together. It makes such a difference going to work every day for 14 hours and being able to hang out and have a good time.

There’s a lot of differing data [about global warming], but as far as I can gather, over the last hundred years the temperature on this planet has gone up 1.8 degrees. Am I the only one who finds that amazingly stable? I could go back to my hotel room tonight and futz with the thermostat for three to four hours. I could not detect that difference.

You can have a team of unconventional thinkers, as well as conventional thinkers. If you don’t have the support of others you cannot achieve anything altogether on your own. It’s like a cry in the wilderness. In each instance there were others who could see the same thing, and there were others who could not. It’s an obvious difference we see in those who you might say have a bird’s eye view, and those who have a worm’s eye view. I’ve come to realize that we all have a different mind set, we all see things differently, and that’s what the human condition is really all about.

When you play music with someone who has a heart rather than playing with someone who is just doing it for money or is cynical it makes all the difference.

We focus so much on our differences, and that is creating, I think, a lot of chaos and negativity and bullying in the world. And I think if everybody focused on what we all have in common – which is – we all want to be happy.

The subtle differences in language and humor that get lost in translation, for example, make it almost impossible for big companies to do something that will appeal at home and abroad.

Donaire is a very good champion. We both have speed and power. The difference is intelligence. I was born to fight. The bigger the fight the better. If Donaire isn’t right, he’s going to get knocked out. Maybe five rounds, maybe less. Not sure yet. But you know what? Donaire stepped up and took this fight. He didn’t have to. For that, I respect him for getting in the ring with me.

Customs, morals — is there a difference? Woman, do you realize what you are doing? Here, by the grace of God and an inside straight, we have a personality untouched by the psychotic taboos of our tribe — and you want to turn him into a carbon copy of every fourth-rate conformist in this frightened land! Why don’t you go whole hog? Get him a brief case and make him carry it wherever he goes — make him feel shame if he doesn’t have it.
