Favorite Levitt Quotes

1. "I think you need a levitt break"
Author: A. Meredith Walters
2. "I really try to make movies as good as I can, and create a convincing character who means something to me and maybe other people. The notion of celebrity is kind of saying, ‘All that doesn't matter. We're not interested in the story you're trying to tell. What interests us is you, your name, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, quote-unquote, and who you're dating or what you're eating or…' And to me, that's like, Wow, so you're saying what I love and spend so much time caring about is irrelevant and doesn't matter? Fuck you, too."
Author: Joseph Gordon Levitt
3. "Still, one could argue—and many did—that Greenspan, at least, had no business being quite so shocked. Over the years, countless people had challenged his deregulatory dogma, including (to name just a few) Joseph Stiglitz and Paul Krugman, both Nobel Prize–winning economists, and Brooksley Born, who was head of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission from 1996 to 1999. Born eventually became something of a Cassandra figure for the crisis, since she repeatedly called for regulating the market for derivatives, those ultracomplex financial products that eventually helped bring down the economy. Those calls were silenced when Greenspan, along with then-Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin and then-Securities and Exchange Commission Chair Arthur Levitt, took the extraordinary step of convincing Congress to pass legislation forbidding Born's agency from taking any action for the duration of her term."

4. "Are people innately altruistic?" is the wrong kind of question to ask. People are people, and they respond to incentives. They can nearly always be manipulated--for good or ill--if only you find the right levers. ~ Levitt & Dubner, "Superfreakonomics"
Author: Levitt And Dubner
5. "Tilanteessa jossa henkilö on jo kiivennyt katolleja heiluttelee nyt räystään yli jalkojaan kuin krokettimailoja(puuttuu vain punainen pallo ja kalahdus, aimo annos aurinkoista mieltä)tyyneys on valttia. Haasteellisinta on hillitä vastustamaton halu kiivetähänen viereensä, levittää kädet siiviksi ja mäiskähtää katuun yhdessähänen kanssaan."
Author: Silene Lehto
6. "Levitt admits to having the reading interests of a tweener girl, the Twilight series and Harry Potter in particular."
Author: Steven D. Levitt

Today's Quote

I was increasingly both horrified and sceptical about these memories - I had no recall of these things at all, though I couldn't imagine why I'd want to make it all up either. It felt as though it had all happened to somebody else, I was not there - it wasn't me - when those people did nasty things.But then, of course, it didn't feel like me, that's the whole point of dissociation - to create distance between the victim and her experience of the abuse. The alters were created for just that purpose: so that I'd not be aware that it happened to me, but rather to "others". The trouble is, in reality it was my body that took the abuse. It was only my mind that was divided, and sooner or later the amnesic barriers were bound to come down.And that's exactly what had begun to happen as I heard their stories. They triggered a vague and growing sense in me that this really is my story."
