Check out Minyanville's quotes of the week (along with some slightly older ones...). From Rupert Murdoch to Paul Wolfowitz to Confucius, we take a look at who's talking the talk.

"I'm sometimes frustrated by the long stories."
–Rupert Murdoch on the editorial content in The Wall Street Journal

–A high school student's entire college application essay in response to the question "How would you describe your writing style?" (Note: He got in. To Yale.)

"There is a sense among prosecutors that insider trading is a more attractive charge to bring in front of a jury than something abstract like accounting fraud."
–Former federal prosecutor Evan Barr

"An accusation of bad ethics is not an abstract thing."
–Benson K. Whitney, U.S. ambassador to Norway, on the Norwegian government's decision to pull investments out of certain American companies for "ethical failings"

"Abstract painting is abstract. It confronts you. There was a reviewer a while back who wrote that my pictures didn't have any beginning or any end. He didn't mean it as a compliment, but it was."
–Jackson Pollock

"I'm looking for a smart, insanely funny, and beautiful woman in touch with her dirty side."
–La Mott Jackson, one of Hillary Clinton's top sixteen MySpace "friends"

"Everything has beauty but not everyone sees it."

"The goal of this smear campaign, I believe, is to create a self-fulfilling prophecy that I am an ineffective leader and must step down for that reason alone, even if the ethics charges are unwarranted."
–World Bank president, and Chevy Chase Maryland resident, Paul D. Wolfowitz

"I just can't imagine someone wanting everything in their private life to be skewered."

"Fortunately, we're not a public company-we're a private group of companies, and I can do what I want."
–Richard Branson

"Public opinion is the thermometer a monarch should constantly consult."
–Napoleon Bonaparte

"Short people got no reason to live."
–Randy Newman
