Franck Ribery quotes

  • In the 18th century, James Hargreaves invented the Spinning Jenny, and Richard Arkwright pioneered the water-propelled spinning frame which led to the mass production of cotton. This was truly revolutionary. The cotton manufacturers created a whole new class of people - the urban proletariat. The structure of society itself would never be the same.

  • When I was right out of college, I felt competitive with some of the guys in my class over career stuff.

  • Every time a congressman or pundit says its 'class warfare' to increase taxes on the wealthy, it's a massive lie.

  • Everyone knows Cristiano Ronaldo is better than Messi, not only me, but for some it's hard to recognize that.

  • It's impossible to be more of a footballer than Messi.

  • Although he may not be human, it’s good that Messi still thinks he is.

  • The best way to stop Messi is when you play with 11 men and then you can double mark him, one player to stay on him and the other to help out. If it is 11 against 10 then you have almost no chance of stopping him.

  • It is clear that Messi is on a level above all others. Those who do not see that are blind.

  • I gravitate toward the larger worldview questions such as, Why are we here? What are we supposed to be doing? What does it mean to know another person? To love someone? Of course, those questions are sort of in the background as I'm playing with language in the foreground, but those are the informing questions.

  • The American people have no control over what the military does. We have no say in American foreign policy.
