Larry Wilmore

45
I would never have been a good reporter because I am not accurate regarding facts.
George Akerlof
46
Self-awareness is a trait – or maybe ‘practice’ is the more accurate way to put it – that everyone can always improve at. It is part emotional intelligence, part perceptiveness, part critical thinking. It means knowing your weaknesses, of course, but it also means knowing your strengths and what motivates you.
Neil Blumenthal
47
I feel that historical novelists owe it to our readers to try to be as historically accurate as we can with the known facts. Obviously, we have to fill in the blanks.

Sharon Kay Penman
48

Zach Wamp
49

55
A lot of golfers take the club back with almost no upper-body rotation – they’re all arms. And even when they do rotate back, it’s usually on a flat shoulder plane.

Brooks Koepka
56

Michael Shannon
58

60

Scott Gottlieb
62
It turns out that American Express honors recurring payments even if the vendor is unable to supply an accurate card number and expiration date. An Amex phone representative said this is a feature, not a bug, which makes sure my bills are paid.
Barton Gellman
63
In the Iraq war, for instance, so much of the information is digitized and can easily be wiped out. That will make it very hard to write accurate histories. Also, there’s a much greater opportunity for suppression of information before it can even be archived.

67

81

Andy Behrman
82
From the moment you enter the league, everyone wants to slap a label on you – some tidy description of what they think you bring to the game. And more often than not, that tag sticks with you, regardless of whether it’s accurate.

85

Peter Landesman
90
It’s funny. People often compare me to other humor essayists. They’re usually quite nice comparisons; I will accept those gladly. But I am always sort of appalled at the idea of being lumped with other, more chick-y female writers. And the truth is probably that neither comparison is accurate.
Sloane Crosley
91
‘Write’ is almost the wrong verb for what I do. I think ‘compose’ is more accurate because you’re trying to make the sounds in your mind and in your voice. So I compose while I’m driving or in the shower.
Robert Pinsky
92
Silence is so accurate.
Mark Rothko
93
I don’t view my memory as accurate or static – and, in autobiographical fiction, my focus is still on creating an effect, not on documenting reality – so ‘autobiographical,’ to me, is closer in meaning to ‘fiction’ than ‘autobiography.’
Tao Lin
94
The bigger a data set that you have, the more polls, the more surveys that you have that people undertake, the more accurate your models are going to be. That’s just a fact of data science.
Brittany Kaiser
95

Jennifer Egan
97
I’ve always felt like I’m on the outside. I think certain people judge you right away, and I’ve always been acutely sensitive to that. I’m fighting, whether it’s accurate or not, a perception that I get of people thinking I’m dumb.
Bobby Cannavale
98
No one painted a more accurate picture of military depredation than Vergil. Inspired though he was by the Latin spirit and by his pride in Rome, he nevertheless glorified Rome’s true mission as one of providing the world with the rules of peace and justice.
Ernesto Teodoro Moneta
99
We will expect every pupil by the age of 11 to know their times tables off by heart, to perform long division and complex multiplication and to be able to read a novel. They should be able to write a short story with accurate punctuation, spelling and grammar.
Nicky Morgan
100
I wanted to be a rock star. I dreamed of it, and that’s all I dreamed of. To be more accurate, I wanted to be a pop star. This was in the late ’80s. And mostly, I wanted to be the fifth member of Depeche Mode or Duran Duran.
Eric Whitacre
101
Climate change makes machine learning that much more valuable, too: So much of the data available to scientists is not necessarily accurate anymore, as animals move their habitats, temperatures rise and currents shift. As species move, managing populations becomes even more critical.
Tatiana Schlossberg
102
Numbers are the product of counting. Quantities are the product of measurement. This means that numbers can conceivably be accurate because there is a discontinuity between each integer and the next.
Gregory Bateson
103
When writing about historical characters I try to be as accurate as possible, and in particular not to misrepresent the view they held. With a real historical figure you have to be fair, and this is not an obligation you have in dealing with your own creations, so it is quite different.
Pat Barker
104
I look at the human life like an experiment. Every new moment, every new experience, tragic or otherwise, is an opportunity to gain a more accurate perspective and helps lead me to clarity.
Steve Gleason
105
If you watch the movie ‘Ghost’ with Patrick Swayze, you see an accurate portrayal of what I believe. Spirits are stuck here. They want to convey a message to the living, but they can’t – they are on a different frequency. But when they are heard, they are helping both us and themselves.
Zak Bagans
106
I think I work harder on the pitch, I cover more ground and my passing is more accurate.
Frank Lampard
107

Douglas Brinkley
108
I think my reputation among peers is probably different than my reputation among fans. My peers know me pretty well and so it’s fairly accurate. I think I’m respected among my peers.
Denny Hamlin
109
In a film muddied by fictional detail, the new Spielberg production Fifth Estate’s portrayal of the Guardian’s work with Wikileaks is accurate in describing the running dispute between journalists who wanted to redact documents to make them safe and Julian Assange, who wanted no such restraint.
Nick Davies
110
My fans don’t feel like I hold anything back from them. They know whatever I’m going through now, they’ll hear about it on a record someday. They’ll hear the real story. There’s a little bit of lag time. It’s not as instant as going on a gossip blog. But it’s much more accurate.
Taylor Swift
111
I take a certain pride in having maintained a reputation for fast copy throughout my newspaper career. Fast-breaking stories left my typewriter in a hurry. Not great literature, perhaps, but fast, and usually accurate.
Walter Cronkite
112
Comedy isn’t polite and it isn’t correct and it isn’t accurate, even. It’s just a mess. So that’s the way that I approach it.
Louis C. K.
113
Definitely Bollywood needs to learn from Hollywood – in terms of discipline… In Hollywood, everybody is very punctual, very focussed and very accurate. It is very professional.

116
Facial recognition software is already quite accurate in measuring unchanging and unique ratios between facial features that identify you as you. It’s like a fingerprint.
Jan Chipchase
117
If you’re a short-seller, that’s a cacophony of negative reinforcement. You’re basically told that you’re wrong in every way imaginable every day. It takes a certain type of individual to drown that noise and negative reinforcement out and to remind oneself that their work is accurate and what they’re hearing is not.
James Chanos
118
If you put four different people on a podium conducting the same downbeat, you get four different sounds. It’s a little mysterious and fascinating. There’s so much you can do with motions and body movements besides giving accurate beats.
Itzhak Perlman
119
People who label themselves as ‘realists’ are usually accurate – they see to the real edge of what they know, understand, or believe. At best, these folks tend to be caring worriers.
Brendon Burchard
120
You let Congress make the laws. You work with the Congress as the president to make sure that those laws are accurate and to the best of our ability, but you don’t turn it over to the federal judges to make those laws.
Corey Lewandowski
121
I could throw the ball hard, but at this level if you’re not accurate, it’s easy for batters to light you up with home runs. That’s when I started concentrating on making my movements more compact. It just seemed to me that smaller movements would produce the kind of pitching I desired.
Yu Darvish
122
Well, I think we still have to verify whatever declaration we will get and make sure that it is comprehensive and accurate. So, that would take care of the past activities.

123

124
With narration, you have to be very accurate with your voice. It’s a good exercise to do.

Edie Falco
126
Science is simply common sense at its best, that is, rigidly accurate in observation, and merciless to fallacy in logic.
Thomas Huxley
127
For those looking outside-in, it’s not fair – or accurate – to assign someone an identity based off the first thing that we see.
Patrisse Cullors
128
These are ideas. I could say that they just came to me, but it would be more accurate to say that I went to them. Ideas – and new connections between ideas – lead you away from commonly held perceptions of reality. Ideas lead you out here. Ideas lead you into the darkness.
Dave Sim
129
Lena Waithe won an Emmy for writing while starring on the Netflix show ‘Master of None,’ but it might be more accurate to call her a Master of Everything.
Kamala Harris
130
This ‘historical record’ will exist, flawed as it is, in hundreds of years. What will that tell the future? How accurate are we reporting our lives?

Jonathan Sacks
133

Sajid Javid
134
It has taken a lot of persuasion for me to take part in an official documentary about ‘Only Fools and Horses.’ But, as time has gone on, it seems to have been imprinted in television history, and I thought it was only right that I tried to give an accurate insight into how the show was put together.
David Jason
135
Your timing has to be very accurate. I’ve done a lot of wire work before. I can see that experience makes a big difference.
Michelle Yeoh
136
I feel ‘The Street’ is a really accurate comment on the relationships between people.
Emily Beecham
137
I suppose my attitude is what’s most important is that we surround the president’s misleading information with accurate information and help people know what is true ’cause I think the biggest trend of the Trump years is that people are increasingly confused about what is real and what is made-up.
Brian Stelter
138
The security of the United States, which is so dependent on having accurate and timely intelligence, is not a Republican or a Democratic issue.
Saxby Chambliss
139
I’ve read the ‘Public Enemies’ script and, no, it’s not 100 percent historically accurate. But it’s by far the closest thing to fact Hollywood has attempted, and for that, I am both excited and quietly relieved.
Bryan Burrough
140
‘There are no easy pickings.’ That would be a more accurate, less dramatic statement than ‘There’s no such thing as a free lunch.’
Paul Samuelson
141
Being politically correct means saying what’s polite rather than what’s accurate. I like to be accurate.
Robert Kiyosaki
142
Putin is sometimes described as a revanchist, seeking to recreate the Soviet Union. That is a useful shorthand, but it is not really accurate.
Robert Zubrin
143
Sometimes, surely, truth is closer to imagination or to intelligence, to love than to fact? To be accurate is not to be right.
Shirley Hazzard
144
There is no upside to making a disparaging remark about a colleague. If your remark is accurate, everybody already knows it, so there’s no need to point it out. If your remark is inaccurate, you’re the one who ends up looking like a jerk.
Travis Bradberry
145
Surgical Anatomy is, to the student of medicine and surgery, the most essential branch of anatomical science, having reference more especially to an accurate knowledge of the more important regions, and consisting in the application of anatomy generally to the practice of surgery.
Henry Gray
146
People say that to me and I think what unites all my characters is that they are hurt; it’s most accurate to say I play characters that are hurt but are responding to their environment.
Ashley Judd
147
No matter how certain I am about some culture or some group of people, my opinions are only as accurate as the amount of time I’ve spent with them.

Mo Ibrahim
149
I think it’s clear to most people that the description of pro-life Democrat is accurate. I’ve been very consistent. What it means is I try to support policies that help women and children both before and after birth.
Bob Casey, Jr.
150
I know what’s it’s like to grow up with ADHD and how important it is for parents, caregivers and patients, to have access to accurate information.
Ty Pennington
151
When people blanket a whole class of people with statements, I just think that is unfair to everybody. I could do the same thing about media. I can do the same thing about politicians or lawyers, and they’re just never accurate.
Jamie Dimon
152
I write novels, mostly historical ones, and I try hard to keep them accurate as to historical facts, milieu and flavor.
Gary Jennings
153
The Coast Guard evokes images of search and rescue operations, maybe during Hurricane Katrina, or guys jumping out of helicopters wearing snorkels and fins – and that’s accurate, but only part of the picture.
Brianna Keilar
154
An accurate census is critical to our democracy and to our economy. It underpins fair representation in government and allows us to ensure that our communities receive equitable funding for schools, roads, health care, and much more.
Alex Padilla
155
Ellis Peters’s historical detail is very accurate and very minute, and therefore is not only interesting to read but good for an actor to acquire a sense of the period. And the other thing I think is that an actor lives in the land of imagination.

Genome design is going to be a key part of the future. That’s why we need fast, cheap, accurate DNA synthesis, so you can make a lot of iterations of something and test them.
Craig Venter
157
Spinners have a main role, whether in the IPL or world cricket. But it’s hard to be a legspinner: you have to be accurate.
Imran Tahir
158

Jack Reed
159
We’ve got to use every piece of data and piece of information, and hopefully that will help us be accurate with our player evaluation. For us, that’s our life blood.
Billy Beane
160
Referring to ISIL as a destructive religious cult rather than a legitimate theo-political ‘radical Islamic’ group is not just more accurate, it also exposes ISIL’s corrupt religious narrative.
Malcolm Nance
161
In artillery exercises, women always win because they’re more accurate.
Michelle Bachelet
162
I think things can have more than one meaning and still connect with people. There’s a lot of meaning to the title ‘Music For People’ and they’re all true and they’re all accurate.
Jon Crosby
163
Yes, an individual could be electronically stimulated to fear, anger, or euphoria from a distance. However, the procedure is complicated, not always accurate, and far too tedious and expensive as a method for taking over control of the world.
Marilyn Ferguson
164
My face always looks bored or depressed. It’s not an accurate impression.
Tao Lin
165
Whether at work, at home or in public, we have been trained to believe that who we are at the core of our being is often unacceptable. As a result, we work diligently to live up to – and sometimes down to – what others have made us out to be, whether or not it is an accurate reflection of who we are.
Iyanla Vanzant
166
Astrology is interesting but not very accurate. It’s a science I don’t trust very much.
Varg Vikernes
167
There’s a reason we all cried when Gina Rodriguez won that Golden Globe. It didn’t matter if we’re Latina. We get it. We’re just like, ‘Thank you! Finally, a more accurate reflection of diversity!’
Eugene Lee Yang
168
My music has been called heavy metal, but that’s not an accurate description. I’d rather call it articulate rock because it expresses many feelings and emotions.
Billy Squier
169
I’ve rarely seen portrayals of photojournalists that seem accurate.
Lynsey Addario
170
I wasn’t a troublemaker. I wasn’t impertinent. The teachers liked me. But year after year, the comments on my report cards basically came down to a single point, and it was 100% accurate: I seemed to get nothing whatsoever out of all those long hours spent in the classroom.
Tim Howard
171
I think the way to be an influential journalist is to be accurate and to be fair and to get things right and to really characterize things in an honest way, versus being really snarky or cheerleading.
Kara Swisher
172
You can film me 24 hours a day and you’ll get a very accurate picture of who I am. You see the funny side, I work hard, and I try to be honest and just call it how it is.
Lisa Vanderpump
173
You shouldn’t presume that all quotes that are in a magazine or a newspaper are accurate.
Andrew Card
174
Life does depend on accurate replication of molecules, and its complexity often requires that an enzyme shall accept one molecular species or type and transform it to equally specific products.
John Cornforth
175
My family used to call me an oversized kid and I think that’s pretty accurate in some ways.
Jeremy Lin
176
If I tweet out ‘Trumpcare will cause 22 million people to lose coverage,’ I try to make sure that it is as accurate as it can be.
Ted Lieu
177
The thing about science is that it’s an accurate picture of the world.
Jonathan Miller
178
I do think that Americans do not understand that things are done differently in other parts of the world and that the other ways people do things are equally accurate ways to do things. Someone else just came up with something different.
Andrew Sean Greer
179
I had a tattoo of Jaden Smith. A very accurate portrait of a 15-year-old Jaden Smith.
Sal Vulcano
180
I’ve read a lot of different versions of myself – and all of them are true because it’s all opinion, and they’re as accurate as it can ever be. But I don’t think that I’ve been deft at hiding parts of my personality.
Emma Stone
181
Human beings are natural mimickers. The more you’re conscious of the other side’s posture, mannerisms, and word choices – and the more you subtly reflect those back – the more accurate you’ll be at taking their perspective.
Daniel H. Pink
182
I’m very lucky in the sense that I’ve got a voice that’s distinctive. Not good, but distinctive. That’s a very useful thing to have in this business. I’m glad on the one hand that I’ve got it, but I wish it was more powerful. I wish I had a greater range. I wish it was more accurate at times.
Gary Numan
183
A great scale should be accurate first and foremost, but also easy to clean, intuitively designed, simple to read, and convenient to store. These are the qualities that will have you reaching for a scale every time you portion meat for burgers or whip up a batch of fresh pasta.
Sohla El-Waylly
184
You can latch onto theological ideas that are, in fact, not accurate, and refuse to let them go. I think we’ve seen this a few times in church history.
Frederica Mathewes-Green
185
In experimental philosophy, we are to look upon propositions inferred by general induction from phenomena as accurately or very nearly true, notwithstanding any contrary hypotheses that may be imagined, till such time as other phenomena occur by which they may either be made more accurate or liable to exceptions.
Isaac Newton
186
Individuals need accurate information in cancer prevention and guidance tailored to their specific medical history. They will not get it unless our medical doctors and other health professionals are adequately trained.
Margaret Cuomo
187
Actors are observers. They’re trying to have an understanding of human sensibility. And how do you have that accurate observation if you regard yourself as someone of great importance? When you’re the one constantly being observed, because they view you as a celebrity? It’s all wrong.
Hayden Christensen
188
Big data is mostly about taking numbers and using those numbers to make predictions about the future. The bigger the data set you have, the more accurate the predictions about the future will be.
Anthony Goldbloom
189
It matters that we have balance and facts and push people when they need to be pushed so that we can give the accurate, fair, balanced piece to the viewer, and then it’s up to the viewer to be the judge.
Brooke Baldwin
190
I feel my arm’s gotten stronger, I’ve been more accurate with it, and I’ve just got to keep that going.
Andy Dalton
191
My fans are so open-minded and trust that whatever I’m doing, in whatever moment of time, is the most accurate form of expression that I have to offer them. There are no expectations – only a journey which we all share together.
Mija
192
When I first encountered the ‘Sigma Force’ novels – long before I became friends with Jim Rollins – a bookseller told me that these stories were about ‘geeks with guns.’ While not entirely accurate, that’s pretty close to the mark, and that really speaks to me.
Jonathan Maberry
193
Your perceptions are often far more accurate than you are willing to believe.
Claudia Black
194
It’s important to drive consistently to evaluate changes that are made to the car. You need to be very accurate with your feedback and communicate as much information as possible.
Nico Hulkenberg
195
While the Environmental Genome Project does not seek to assign allele frequencies, we are aware of the importance of accurate allele frequency estimates for future epidemiologic studies and the large sample sizes such estimates will require.
Samuel Wilson
196
I wouldn’t say being in a film with The Rock was ‘motivating.’ ‘Terrifying’ would be a more accurate description.
Luke Evans
197
I’ve read some things that people said about me, and some of it’s not even close to accurate. Honestly, I don’t even have ESPN in my house. There’s really no point.
Carson Wentz
198
I will never repeat something verbatim on the air unless I know it’s accurate. And when you go to the source, sometimes there’s a better story beyond the original story. That happens all the time.
Al Michaels
199
Providing accurate portrayals of characters is something I want to pay ample attention to.
Masahiro Sakurai
200
Anything that’s secret, clandestine, loaded with such a supercargo of speculation, misinformation, disinformation and, for that matter, accurate revelations, creates an appetite.
Charles McCarry
201
Cake Boss, I guess, has been made aware of my impression and finds it amusing and recognizes that it’s not a completely accurate impersonation of who he is in his daily life. He seems to be a good sport about it.
Paul F. Tompkins
202
During the development of the whole-body CT scanner, it became clear that the availability of an accurate cross-sectional picture of the body, the CT ‘slice,’ would have an important effect on the precision and implementation of radiotherapy treatment planning.
Godfrey Hounsfield
203
I have long argued that no one should be allowed to write opinion without spending years as a reporter – nothing like interviewing all four eyewitnesses to an automobile accident and then trying to write an accurate account of what happened.
Molly Ivins
204
We did some research that showed that the very first word of your message that you send a girl – when we looked at men sending messages to women – the very first word can have a tremendous… can have a very accurate prediction of whether you’re going to get a reply.
Sam Yagan
205
Your credit report should be 100% accurate, so make sure everything is entirely correct. If something doesn’t look right, dispute it.
Alexa Von Tobel
206
I’m not extremely outgoing, but I’m average, I think. When people meet me they’ll say, ‘Oh you’re not that shy…’ I never said I was! I see where they’re coming from because my biggest single was about being shy at a party – I get it. But it’s not 100% accurate.
Alessia Cara
207
Denialist arguments are often bolstered by accurate information taken wildly out of context, wielded selectively, and supported by fake experts who often don’t seem fake at all.
Michael Specter
208
I am way more accurate than my completion percentage shows.
Josh Allen
209
Because ‘The Boy With The Topknot’ is a true story there are so many specific details that are true, current, accurate and haven’t been made up.
Sacha Dhawan
210
I think my view is that whenever you project into the future you’re never likely to be accurate in the details, or the paraphernalia and style. It’s in the spirit of it.
Stephen Fry
211
I would hardly call myself an artist in that sense; I doodle, I draw, I’m not a trained artist, I couldn’t sit down and do an accurate portrait of anyone.
Rene Auberjonois
212
The terrorist uses surprise and stealth, and the only way to defeat that is by having accurate and timely intelligence.
Bill Nelson
213
If your story is being told by someone who doesn’t really know it, it’s not going to come out accurate. A lot of it has to do with context. Whoever’s behind the camera or pen or whatever.
Petra Collins
214
Healthcare providers will compete to offer the best record of patient safety at the lowest prices. Hospitals and patients will benefit from having accurate information about areas of excellence and areas that must be improved.
Timothy Murphy
215
But I am satisfied that the information that we have that this is the work of Zarqawi, is accurate.
