Quotations of the day

By The Associated Press

"If we focus on some big, grand bargain then we're going to focus on our differences, and both sides are going to require that the other side compromises some core principle and then we'll get nothing done." - Paul Ryan, who chairs the House Budget Committee, on upcoming budget talks with Democrats.


"You never think something like this is going to happen on your watch or in good old Tennessee here." - Maj. Gen. Max Haston, Tennessee's adjutant general, after a member of the National Guard opened fire at an armory outside a U.S. Navy base north of Memphis, wounding two soldiers.


"Somebody would have to kill me in order for me to get out of the lineup." - St. Louis outfielder Carlos Beltran, who played a day after suffering bruised ribs as the Cardinals beat the Red Sox 4-2 to even the World Series at a game apiece.
