We were only allowed to watch Sesame Street and Mr. Rogers and 3-2-1 Contact!
I’m more comfortable writing traditional protagonists. But ‘Steve Jobs’ and ‘The Social Network’ have antiheroes. I like to write antiheroes as if they’re making their case to God about why they should be allowed into heaven. I have to find something in that character that is like me and write to that.

Being the one woman in the room should not be seen as a victory. If there’s only one of us in the room, we’re still a token; we don’t actually have an empowered voice. If there’s two of us, we’re still a minority. If there’s three, then we’re allowed to have a multiplicity of opinions.
I don’t think politicians should be allowed into power who are not familiar with their bodies, because that’s where our bottom line is. And I know that they would make totally different decisions if they felt responsible simply for their own bodies.
I’ve had experiences where I wasn’t allowed to change words around at all because you have to say everything, exactly as written on the page. That’s not fun for me. For me, part of being an actor is being able to contribute to a character’s rhythms. If there’s room to explore, you find a happy medium.

Kids should be allowed to break stuff more often. That’s a consequence of exploration. Exploration is what you do when you don’t know what you’re doing.

Too many countries that do not play by the free trade rules of the World Trade Organization – including, notably mercantilist China and monopolist Saudi Arabia – have been allowed in, to the detriment of both the WTO and the liberal trading environment it is supposed to sponsor.
I think there should be very strict limits on the pathogens that can be sold in your meat. There should be limits on disease-causing pathogens. Tests should determine whether the meat is contaminated or not, and you shouldn’t be allowed to sell contaminated meat.
If you are not allowed to defend, what’s racing about, then?
To keep it simple you run your gym like you run your house. Keep it clean and in good running order. No jerks allowed, members pay on time and if they give you any crap, throw them out. There’s peace where there’s order.

The theater business has allowed me, in a way the movie and TV business has not, to do very, very interesting work. So that’s what I do.

I feel like there are women who are genuinely born to be mothers, and women who are born to be aunties, and women who really probably not should be allowed near children. The tragedy that happens is when any one of those women ends up in the wrong category.

My first two novels were set in the past, and that freed me up in a lot of ways; it allowed me to find my way into my story and my characters through research.
The man who is denied the opportunity of taking decisions of importance begins to regard as important the decisions he is allowed to take.

I know I am the first female celebrity in the world who has allowed herself to be filmed like that in an operating theatre.
The local communities, through their leaders, were able to build a communications network that allowed my work here to reflect the needs and interests of the people within the 9th Congressional District. It’s been an honor to do that and we did so successfully.

I always looked really young for my age. And once I hit 23, 24 and 25, I was then allowed to play the cool 18-year-olds and stuff.

The school made it very clear that women were entitled to positions of authority. That sense of entitlement allowed us to feel that we have a natural place in leadership in the world. That gave me a mental and emotional confidence.

There was no music at all during my childhood. The first time we heard music was when my eldest brother bought a tape recorder. Even then, only he was allowed to touch it. But in our house, we listened to legends such as Muhammad Rafi, Mehdi Hasan, Noor Jehan, Attaullah Khan Esakhelvi.
The agony of my feelings allowed me no respite; no incident occurred from which my rage and misery could not extract its food.

I have never allowed anti-Russian rhetoric in Ukrainian policy toward such a strategic partner like Russia. This is the first point. I never went against the interests of the Ukrainian state and the Ukrainian people.
We are all allowed to support whoever we’d like to in this country. That’s the greatest part about being an American – one of them, that is; you know what I mean?
I would say that something important for me and for my generation in Northern Ireland was the 1947 Education Act, which allowed students who won scholarships to go on to secondary schools and thence to university.
The sadness of the women’s movement is that they don’t allow the necessity of love. See, I don’t personally trust any revolution where love is not allowed.
It is true that no member state can be required to make payments to others. But if countries want to offer voluntary assistance, as in the Greek case, this isn’t only allowed, but it’s also in Germany’s interest. We all benefit by ensuring the stability of the euro zone.

I have had UFO experiences, and yet, at the same time, I can easily be convinced that none of it is true. It’s hard to say whether or not you’re a believer. I’ve been interested in that subject matter, like lots of people. Perhaps foolishly, I’ve allowed some of that stuff to creep into my music.
I’m a classic emerald green Sixties Jaguar that nobody can own, but my husband is allowed to drive.
I’ve been allowed to grow over the past twenty years. I’ve managed to avoid being trapped in one moment of my career and for that, I’m very thankful.
The Browning love story? It is an ideal, all too rare, and yet I hardly think it strange. It would have been far stranger had the fates allowed those two brilliant passionate souls to beat themselves out in silence.

Our affluence has allowed us to move to a place where we tend to make things pleasurable, as opposed to efficient.

I would say that the war correspondent gets more drinks, more girls, better pay, and greater freedom than the soldier, but at this stage of the game, having the freedom to choose his spot and being allowed to be a coward and not be executed for it is his torture.
I was trained as a fine artist. I went to a progressive public school in Pennsylvania that developed these talents, but I was never able to apply to a decent college because I had no math, no science – I was allowed to just paint all day and write.
I think being a foreigner and talking about Hollywood allowed me to use some cliches and some references that an American would maybe not use.
I was not allowed a physical lover. Falling in love with Love was the best I could get.
I wasn’t allowed to go to movies when I was kid; my father was a minister. 101 Dalmatians and King of Kings, that was the extent of it.

When I got back I found myself being very emotional about the time spent in Rwanda in a way that I hadn’t been able to or allowed myself to be when we were there.
The more words we are allowed to take, the freer we become. If our mouth is banned, then we attempt to assert ourselves through gestures, even objects. They are more difficult to interpret, and take time before they arouse suspicion.

So long as little children are allowed to suffer, there is no true love in this world.

There aren’t traditions of freedom in a place like Iraq. They’re going to have to come to grips with a concept that they hadn’t been allowed to conceive before.
When I was a child it was very clear what I was allowed to see and what I was not allowed to see and there was no discussion or option or negotiation. Whatever my mom said, that’s what went down.
But filming is good for you, because the crew isn’t allowed to laugh. You can’t get addicted to getting the laugh.
Faulkner’s characters, too, were uneducated. They were deprived, but they were allowed to have very rich inner lives. I want to advocate for that, for inner lives that are much more complicated and more poetic than we think.
Political theatre presents an entirely different set of problems. Sermonising has to be avoided at all cost. Objectivity is essential. The characters must be allowed to breathe their own air. The author cannot confine and constrict them to satisfy his own taste or disposition or prejudice.
I think free speech is probably the coolest thing we have in this country, and again, you can label it hate speech and dismiss it, and then you’re allowed to censor it.

You’re not allowed to step out of whatever the rules are, politically, or socially, and they’ll get you for it, they’ll hunt you down. That’s the really frightening thing.
Radio news is bearable. This is due to the fact that while the news is being broadcast, the disk jockey is not allowed to talk.

Combat duty is strenuous and physically demanding, and I’m not the first person to notice that men and women are built differently. And while many will argue that women will only be allowed into combat arms units under the same requirements as their male counterparts, count me as skeptical.
We all agree that we’ve got to bring these terrorists to justice and to make sure that they’re never allowed to perpetrate such an evil act as they did. And so all of us are dealing with that. We know that the President has the authority to go to war under the War Powers Act.
It is important that people support prisoners of the Italian state like Joe in whatever way they can. I was not allowed contact with a lawyer for the first 24 hours, and no phone calls were permitted, but apparently telegrams have been getting through to Joe.
A man is no less a slave because he is allowed to choose a new master once in a term of years.
Songwriting has really allowed me to enjoy life and look at it from an objective place.
I think it is not just the U.N. speaking, but the concept of a third party, a third party to a conflict speaking out. You know, sometimes saying, ‘Stop, this is enough. This cannot be allowed to happen,’ gives the victims and the people who are caught in that situation courage, encouragement, support.
No moral code or ethical principle, no piece of scripture or holy teaching, can be summoned to defend what we have allowed our country to become.
The routers get involved in this and they know that on the path between this router and that router a certain percentage of the bandwidth is reserved to these things and a certain percentage of it is allowed on a first come first served basis.

I didn’t get my licence because I wasn’t allowed to. But I haven’t had a seizure for a long time so I could, theoretically, get my licence. But I’m now just so used to not driving, I’m scared of what I’d do.
Class clowns are never allowed to date anybody decent, but you don’t get beaten up, you’re invited to parties, and everybody likes you.
When I started writing full time I had not long stopped being a teacher and when at last I had a full day to write, I would put music on and wonder to myself – am I allowed to do this? Then I thought: ‘I am control of this and no one is telling me what I can do.’
If priests were allowed to marry, if this would be an optional thing, and if he could have wife and children, he would certainly have less temptation to satisfy certain sexual impulses with minors.

I would feel horrible to think I had put my name on a pistol permit and allowed someone to carry around a gun and they committed another crime.

My small experience on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ allowed me to slowly appreciate the Waltz and Viennese Waltz, but to see it in Vienna is something much different.
Economists have allowed themselves to walk into a trap where we say we can forecast, but no serious economist thinks we can. You don’t expect dentists to be able to forecast how many teeth you’ll have when you’re 80. You expect them to give good advice and fix problems.
Engaging in actions which are not allowed by law should have certain prices to pay.
Everyone should be allowed to participate in sport, because it helps you to become more confident. That is important for women in India, because we are not always treated as equals.
All of us, who are members of the Germanic peoples, can be happy and thankful that once in thousands of years fate has given us, from among the Germanic peoples, such a genius, a leader, our Fuehrer Adolf Hitler, and you should be happy to be allowed to work with us.
TV was my life, growing up. I ran home from school to watch television, and even did my homework with the TV on – my mom had a rule that as long as my grades didn’t fall, I was allowed to. So it was my dream to work in television.
When I was running Atari, violence against humanoid figures was not allowed. We’d let you shoot at a tank… but we drew the line at shooting at people, with blood splattering everywhere.
Stand-up comedy is not a man’s job. It’s an alpha job: To be the only person in a room with a microphone who’s allowed to talk.
I think there is pressure on people to turn every negative into a positive, but we should be allowed to say, ‘I went through something really strange and awful and it has altered me forever.’
My father raised us like… we were not allowed to see people in any sort of colors, but also we were not allowed to call people fat. If ever we were to say, ‘Oh that fat person, or this person,’ he would make us put a bar of soap in our mouth and count to 10. We weren’t allowed to look at people like that.
Wars of necessity are essentially unavoidable. They involve the most important national interests, a lack of promising alternatives to the use of force, and a certain and considerable price to be paid if the status quo is allowed to stand. Examples include World War II and the Korean War.
Nobody has done more for me than my parents, who devoted untold amounts of time and money that allowed me to play the game I love. It’s no exaggeration to say I never would have gotten anywhere near a World Cup, an Olympics, or even the U.S. national team without them. I have never forgotten that, and I never will.
Well, I went through some emotionally abusive relationships and allowed myself to not be properly respected as a lady, as a human being even, though I tried everything I knew to be a lady.
What I was doing was servicing the needs of my constituents and I was not allowed to do that because I did not toe the line on U.S. policy for Israel.
Young people everywhere have been allowed to choose between love and a garbage disposal unit. Everywhere they have chosen the garbage disposal unit.
It is a well-known fact that those people who must want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it… anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job.
When people start to perceive you as the big guy, you’re not allowed to be scrappy, fierce.
The higher up you go, the more mistakes you are allowed. Right at the top, if you make enough of them, it’s considered to be your style.
Britain still has the most reliably beautiful countryside of anywhere in the world. I would hate to be part of the generation that allowed that to be lost.
I’ve got two dogs; they’re Boston terriers, and they’re allowed everywhere.
My mom was scared of the old Times Square so I was never allowed to go. Now I’m scared of the new Times Square, so I still never go.

I just noticed recently that in one book after another I seem to find an excuse to find some character who, to put it idiotically simply, is allowed to talk crazy.
So often at home in the West Village, I’m like, ‘Why aren’t I allowed a horse?’ I would keep a horse in a stable in my apartment, and I would fit him with rubber shoes, and we’d just roll him out. If I needed to go to a meeting somewhere, I’d just get on my horse and go across town.
Democracy is being allowed to vote for the candidate you dislike least.
Business should never be allowed to justify mean, thug ugly deals for any reason.
Food is the only snobbery allowed. Imagine pulling up in your expensive car alongside somebody at the lights with a cheap car and saying, ‘Is that all you’ve got?’ But people do it with food.
I don’t think I’m allowed to talk about that. It is definitely not me. The role has been cast.
The message of music was also the first thing what I learned from my first teacher. She was an organist too and she was very devoted to what she played, so she had a respect for every piece and she felt that she is not allowed to add something of her own.
I am what I am. I love me! And I don’t mean that egotistically – I love that God has allowed me to take whatever it was that I had and to make something out of it.
During the 1970s, inflation expectations rose markedly because the Federal Reserve allowed actual inflation to ratchet up persistently in response to economic disruptions – a development that made it more difficult to stabilize both inflation and employment.
A diplomat these days is nothing, but a head waiter who is allowed to sit down occasionally.
I think the French Open, in many ways, brought out a certain characteristic in me and in my game that was already there. Just the circumstances allowed for it to be able to show.
I’m fine, but I’m bipolar. I’m on seven medications, and I take medication three times a day. This constantly puts me in touch with the illness I have. I’m never quite allowed to be free of that for a day. It’s like being a diabetic.
The place where we don’t agree is on whether there should be some restraint on insurance companies and whether they should be allowed to run wild. We believe there should be some restraint; some on the other side don’t think so.
Putting pressure on grand juries to indict in my view is un-American. A grand jury should be allowed to be fair and impartial. They shouldn’t have people yelling and screaming.
For market discipline to constrain risk effectively, financial institutions must be allowed to fail. Under optimal financial regulatory and financial system infrastructures, such a failure would not threaten the overall system.
It’s not easy being a father, but I’ve been allowed a comeback.
People pay for what they do, and still more for what they have allowed themselves to become. And they pay for it very simply; by the lives they lead.
Life is very, very complicated, and so films should be allowed to be, too.
You should learn to be happy with what you have. Besides, the fact that I’m not a huge star has allowed me to pick and choose the roles I want to do, not the ones some person sitting in a studio office thinks I should do.
Doubtless the most miserable of men, under the most oppressive government in the world, if allowed the ballot, would use it, if they could see any chance of thereby ameliorating their condition.
‘Have fun’ is my message. Be silly. You’re allowed to be silly. There’s nothing wrong with it.

I was terrified to be my true self because I felt that it wasn’t enough. But I allowed myself to break down those walls.
I want people to be inspired that I’ve always strived for excellence and I’ve always gone beyond what anybody ever thought I could do, what I thought I myself could do. And I’ve allowed myself to be inspired, kept my eyes open and my senses open to inspiration around me.
We weren’t allowed to watch TV as kids.
I’m not allowed to see R-rated movies, but I did see ‘Kick-Ass’ because I’m in it. I’m not going to skip out on my own premiere!
There’s a good many pictures I’d like to make; we’ll see how many I’ll be allowed to make.
If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help… Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business – you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.
I was disappointed, not because we had lost the war but because our people had allowed it to go on for so many years, instead of heeding the few voices of protest against all that mass insanity and slaughter.
Politics should not be a lifelong career, and elected officials should not be allowed to fix themselves in the halls of power of a nation.
You want to know why there’s a Texas Rangers? Well, here’s the answer. You know how the six-gun came around? Well, here’s the answer. You want to know why Mexicans allowed Americans to settle Texas in the first place? It was fear of Comanches.
I speak five languages besides mine. I went to school in Egypt because girls weren’t allowed to go to school in Saudi Arabia. It’s very restricting, especially for girls; we’re not allowed to go anywhere.
Never break the neutrality of a port or place, but never consider as neutral any place from whence an attack is allowed to be made.
I take things in better when I’m allowed to talk, and respond, and engage and move around a bit.
The transition to WWE has been an incredible road. It’s been great, it’s been difficult, it’s been motivating, and it has allowed me as a person to just completely see myself differently and allowed me to grow in a different perspective with their input.
I just like being a social experiment sometimes. I really should not be allowed in public. But I just go out into the public just to see people’s reaction. The thing is, I can do anything I want, virtually, within reason, just to see people’s reaction.
When I was young we weren’t even allowed to speak our own languages in school. They called it ‘vernacular,’ as if only English was the real tongue.
If the U.N. were to be successful in its efforts to control the Internet, countries where human rights records range from questionable to criminal could be put in charge of determining what is and is not allowed to appear online.
And then modelling, because it pays you really well and you get to travel, I was forced to get used to the idea of standing in front of a camera and having six or seven people watching me and that actually allowed me to loosen up from an acting point of view.
I’m not convinced about marriage. Divorce is so easy, and that fact that gay people are not allowed to marry takes much of the meaning out of it. Committing yourself to one person is sacred.
There was a Russian director named Elem Klimov, who did his films during the communist days. They were constantly struggling with the authorities and to be allowed to express themselves. But he did one of the best war movies I’ve ever seen – it’s called ‘Come and See.’
The petty logic of political parties cannot be allowed to stifle the French people’s legitimate aspirations to safety and liberty.
I used to write bits and pieces of comedy material for various comics that were at the Windmill… as well as my film job, I was under contract, I was allowed to do that and everything.

We have to protect all journalists, and journalists have to be allowed to do their jobs.
And it says something about our level of disassociation, that we can provoke these wars abroad but we’re not allowed to see people get killed as a result.
Growing up, I never gave a thought to being a writer. All I ever wanted to be was a traveler and explorer. Science-fiction allowed me to go places that were otherwise inaccessible, which is why I started reading it. I was going to be a lawyer, but I got saved.
As smartphones have allowed us to have our computers, emails, social media feeds, and a full surveillance system in our pockets at all times, stories of the law enforcement’s unease with that have been popping up in the press. And of course, the ones that become viral videos aren’t exactly flattering for law enforcement.
Mickey Mantle was a very good golfer, but we weren’t allowed to play golf during the season; only at spring training.
Being a teenager, I would think they were real strict, and I would get upset, but I’m glad they were like that. They didn’t let us do whatever we wanted. We weren’t allowed to date until we were, like, juniors in high school.
No organization should be allowed near disaster unless they are willing to cooperate with some level of established leadership.
The fun stuff comes when someone is not so strict on sticking to the script. You’re allowed the spontaneity, and great moments can happen.
My father was in the civil service. I can remember standing in a bus shelter in the pouring rain, and that we were allowed candy floss at the end of the holiday if we had behaved.
The income tax is a twentieth-century socialist experiment that has failed. Before the income tax was imposed on us just 80 years ago, government had no claim to our income. Only sales, excise, and tariff taxes were allowed.
I was like, 18 and it was in West Virginia because I was allowed to get into the clubs in West Virginia, not Pennsylvania where I was growing up. And we went in and there was a drag queen on stage and she was huge and beautiful, but she was lip syncing to a song. I was legitimately stunned.
My mum was one of those people who really wasn’t allowed to be an artist, because she worked in a factory and she came from the war and all that stuff. She really has an artist’s soul.
When I got Jacob’s Latter, I was nervous because I felt I wasn’t allowed to fail. I felt that they were waiting for one little failure and that would prove them right and I’d be, ‘out of there.’
If you ask people what attracted them to the person they love, they never tell you of some perfect feature that focused them on sheer surfaces but rather an imperfection that allowed them to see into their uncharted depths.
I am lucky to have had an attentive, curious and loving dad and heart-smart, down-to-earth, gifted mother. They changed the outlooks of their own lives and have never forgotten the people and organizations that helped them dream bigger than their circumstances should have allowed.
Thank you for allowing me to use colors as rich and deep as you please. I had always wanted to do so, yet was never allowed because of the color capabilities of our lithographers. Now that I have done it, I don’t think I’ll ever go back.
The free market allowed shock jocks to flourish, and millions of listeners apparently enjoyed the rant.
If every person charged with a crime was allowed to claim money from the authorities when their case was dropped, our police would end up spending all their time defending claims for compensation.
We’ve definitely had our share of ups and downs as a group, and there were times we’ve faced some pretty big challenges, but we were able to get through these times, which allowed our bond to grow stronger.
The interval allowed was only five minutes, at the end of which I resumed the lecture; but so refreshing was the effects of the brief rest and, above all, the admission of pure air, that during the second hour the attention was as completely sustained as during the first.
I’m not really allowed to drink a lot of caffeine, because I’m 11.
Government spending is being restrained, the economy is making progress and moving forward, and the pro-growth, tax cutting policies put in place have allowed businesses to grow, which has brought in additional tax revenue to help pay off the debt.
Every genuine boy is a rebel and an anarch. If he were allowed to develop according to his own instincts, his own inclinations, society would undergo such a radical transformation as to make the adult revolutionary cower and cringe.
Yes, they allowed us to play around a lot because, like we said, the director’s such a good comedy director.
I really think that women should be allowed to be more European, in this country.

People with chile peppers on their chef pants shouldn’t be allowed in the kitchen.
I mean I constantly had security guards around me when I was younger and I wasn’t allowed to go to the mall with a lot of my friends and stuff like that. And so, when I finally was able to sneak out, I would just really, really take it to the next level.
I was not allowed to talk about being adopted when growing up. I walked around feeling like I was going to explode.
To be allowed to come back to WWE is the greatest gift that’s ever been given to me. Back in the day, I never appreciated what WWE had given me, because I was in too much disarray and too confused about my own life. I let opportunities foolishly slip through my hands.
When I became prime minister last September, I promised the Japanese people that I would not tolerate the politics of indecision. A propensity to delay difficult and weighty decisions has been hurting our country. It is detrimental to our economy, society and future, and it cannot be allowed to continue.
The difficulty of writing a good theatre play set in new reality was even greater given that the level of similitude to life that is allowed in a film would not work on the stage.
As a child, I didn’t know what they mean by ‘to die.’ So I grew up in a place where people used to die all the time, but a child is not allowed to see a dead body. When you ask, ‘Where is so-and so?’ you’re told, ‘He’s gone to another world where we all go to live in the future.’
I try to exist in a world where there is freedom of opinion, where you’re allowed to make jokes. I don’t want to live in some PC world where no-one’s allowed to say anything.
I think women have long been defined by their roles as procreators and wives, and we’re expected to serve, take care of, say ‘Yes,’ and not ruffle any feathers. Women, in particular, are sometimes not allowed to consider who they are outside of the roles that they play.
I think that we have strayed into very dangerous territory where people are not allowed to express a negative opinion.
It took me a while to learn, but we are allowed to make mistakes and have flaws.
And in the Second World War, you didn’t just read about it in the newspapers because you weren’t allowed to read it in the newspapers. It was all censored, you know? So nobody knew what we were doing.
I was brought up very conservatively. My father was positively Victorian – I wasn’t even allowed to wear my hair down.
On the other hand I have seen several, several top targets for these investigations of these terrorist activities that were allowed to leave the country – I’m not talking about weeks, I’m talking about months after 9/11.
I believe that summer is our time, a time for the people, and that no politician should be allowed to speak to us during the summer. They can start talking again after Labor Day.
To mourn is to wonder at the strangeness that grief is not written all over your face in bruised hieroglyphics. And it’s also to feel, quite powerfully, that you’re not allowed to descend into the deepest fathom of your grief – that to do so would be taboo somehow.
Sleep more at night. If it’s allowed at work or home, take a nap in the afternoon. You’ll be amazed at how much better you’ll feel.
If you allowed PayPal to pursue its destiny, there are moves it could make to become the largest financial company in the world.
With twelve horse power at our command, we considered that we could permit the weight of the machine with operator to rise to 750 or 800 pounds, and still have as much surplus power as we had originally allowed for in the first estimate of 550 pounds.
I haven’t grown since I was 13, and every girl cast opposite me isn’t allowed to wear heels on camera, for fear that I would look minuscule. In all of the casting calls for my best friends on every project, it says in big, bold, red letters: ‘Please no high heels.’ It’s a little embarrassing.
It defies common sense that stores are fined for selling toy guns to children, but someone who isn’t even allowed to board an airplane in this country can purchase as many real guns he wants with no questions asked.
I stick to myself now on tours. I don’t go out party, drink, smoke, do drugs. It’s a dry bus. No one is allowed to bring drinks on the bus.
The bottom line is that time travel is allowed by the laws of physics.
How many crossroads are you allowed to have in life? I seem to have a lot of crossroads. I think maybe I crossed back across the same road too often.
I do fear God, but I will also tell you that when a doctor diagnoses you and the word ‘cancer’ comes out of his mouth, at that point, it changes your life and you do fear less and it also has allowed me to be a lot more open as a person. It’s changed me.
Government unions should not be allowed to influence the public officials they are lobbying, and sitting across the bargaining table from, through campaign donations and expenditures.
Punk allowed women to stop looking feminine. Oh, the relief.

The only recreation there allowed, however, is that of the mind, and of this there is but little.
Being surrounded by great women and amazing role models and good teammates allowed me to unfold and evolve into the person that I am today.
Rousseau ranks among the great educational theorists of the modern era, even if he was the last man to put in charge of a classroom. Young adults, he thought, should be allowed to develop their capabilities in their distinctive way.
Anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job.
I don’t want to make fictional characters who are perfect – that’s a vanilla situation – but the fact is you are allowed to more carefully select and curate what it is you’re going to explore.
Each organism, no matter how simple or complex, has around it a sacred bubble of space, a bit of mobile territoriality which only a few other organisms are allowed to penetrate and then only for short periods of time.
No American soldier should be allowed to set foot on Iranian soil, regardless of the criticism we have of the Iranian government.
I would say that the fundamental question of geography is about how humans shaped the Earth’s surface and how we, in turn, are shaped by the ways in which we have shaped the Earth’s surface. So, for me, geography was just a set of tools that allowed me to ask these kinds of questions and to try to think through them.
I grew up in a family with two very strong women, my mother and my older sister, and they were big influences on my life. I’ve spent a life loving women, and studying them as much as I can, or am allowed to.
Believe it or not, we will actually be better and happier workers if we are allowed to be better parents. We might even rediscover our capacity for fun.
I allowed myself to think if I could be doing anything in the world, what would I be doing? And what came to mind is I’d be traveling a little bit, I’d be going to classes and I’d be going back to school.
What I argue is that if I’m going to be held accountable for my actions that I should be allowed to record… my actions. Especially if somebody else is keeping a record of my actions.
My wife is wonderful. She’s one of the people who has changed my life around… or has allowed ME to change my life around.
Any act often repeated soon forms a habit; and habit allowed, steady gains in strength, At first it may be but as a spider’s web, easily broken through, but if not resisted it soon binds us with chains of steel.
I was allowed to wander where I could. Here is a case in which you search for your independence and allow something creative to come out of that.
I’ve had the odd good luck of starting slowly and building gradually, something few writers are allowed anymore. As a result I’ve seen each of my books called the breakthrough. And each was, in its way.
Public service has allowed me to put values my parents taught me into action.
I was pretty young when my father was prime minister, so it wasn’t really a big part of my life. My folks were away a lot, meeting foreign dignitaries and that sort of thing, but it never struck me as odd. If anything it allowed me to get into all sorts of mischief.
This profession has fed me creatively and allowed me to have a home life and a private life.
Our intelligence agencies have vast powers, and Obama used them illegally to spy on political opponents. This can’t be allowed to stand.
Hiphop has remained in an infantile stage and has not been allowed to grow.
I never took a grant or borrowed a penny from anybody. It was partially because I didn’t really know how to do that, but secondly, my pride never would have allowed me to. In the beginning it was about doing it the right way, on the merits of the music.
Nutrition is so important; it’s part of the game. It has helped with my recovery, allowed me to sleep better, and helped my body adapt quickly.
In my forties, my optimism was boundless. I had really good health and tremendous success which allowed me to do anything I wanted.
I only started playing piano because I had chickenpox when I was about 14 and wasn’t allowed to play my drums for a whole week… We had a piano in the house, so I just sat down and played that instead.
When I was in seventh grade, I was bored out of my mind. We seemed to be learning the same things over and over in science and math, and two of the boys in my class were allowed to move ahead into these advanced classes, but I wasn’t allowed because I was a girl.
As an indigenous leader from Bolivia, I know what exclusion looks like. Before 1952, my people were not allowed to even enter the main squares of Bolivia’s cities, and there were almost no indigenous politicians in government until the late 1990s.
We don’t normally go on about the fact that Roman Catholics once upon a time didn’t have the vote and weren’t allowed to have their own churches because we had Catholic emancipation.
You see, I was told stories, we were all told stories as kids in Nigeria. We had to tell stories that would keep one another interested, and you weren’t allowed to tell stories that everybody else knew. You had to dream up new ones.
A photocopier is a camera in its own right. I was fortunate to grow up in the time and culture that I did. I was allowed to develop an awareness that the art that really moves me is actually based on an original image.
I was never consciously rebellious but I suppose comedy is a sort of act of rebellion isnt it? Coming from a quite liberal background, it never occurred to me that there was anything to rebel against because you were allowed to say what you wanted to say.
For years, we’ve grown dependant on American consumers as the world’s spenders of last resort. They’ve kept Europe out of recession, allowed China to industrialise, and prevented global deflation. But at the same time, they’ve not been looking after their own futures.
That was something we were trying to figure out: Are we allowed to do a jazz song? Are we allowed to do cabaret? Just from hearing the Beatles, it was like, ‘Well, they did it. It’s okay to write something other than a standard rock song.’
The immoral veto of the United States allowed the Israelis, with impunity, to destroy Lebanon. Right in front of all of us as we stood there watching, a resolution in the council was prevented.
Being homeschooled for half of my life allowed me to choose my own curriculum and find things I really enjoy, and that’s kind of inspired me. I’ve always been intrigued in or interested in the topics I’ve been covering.
Evolution is unobservable. It’s based on blind faith in a few dry bones and on unreliable dating systems in which the gullible trust. Kids should be allowed to make up their own minds about this issue, and not be censored to ‘one side is all we will let you hear.’
I can understand why those bands do it. It can be a hell of a lot of bloody fun. People are allowed to have a bit of fun after the age of 40, and a lot of them do need the money.
The permissive society has been allowed to become a dirty phrase. A better phrase is the civilised society.
Any religious organization should be allowed to hire based on their religious preference- but not with federal dollars.
Perhaps if you are in support functions waiting on the warfighters to spell out the specifics of what you are to do, you can avoid the consequences of not reading. Those who must adapt to overcoming an independent enemy’s will are not allowed that luxury.
This is America – you’re allowed to say and do what you want and what you say and do defines who you are as a person.
I am the product of living in dictatorships. And someone who’s lived in dictatorships and not being allowed to be themselves, it cherishes the ability to be yourself and to have feelings and to speak them when asked. And I am that person.
At this time I had complete confidence in Russian policy and believed that the Western Allies deliberately allowed Germany and Russia to fight each other to death.
When I was a junior, boys were allowed to come visit me at the house. We could sit on the porch until about 8 o’clock at night; that’s when it started getting dark. That was it.
I allowed the scriptwriter to come to my parties for research and it’s a good thing he did otherwise I don’t think Personal Services would’ve been so good.
We have allowed an unholy alliance of government – the new monarchy – and corporate influence – the new aristocracy – to take control of events in a way that would have made our Founders shudder.
My mother would never let me in the kitchen. I always wanted to cook, but I was never allowed to. Her view of the world was, ‘Cooking is my job, and studying is your job.’ I think, in retrospect, she didn’t like the chaos. She was very orderly. It had to be her way.
Love is really my nemesis. I never really allowed myself to indulge in such basic things because I was so motivated and thought that if I did I wouldn’t succeed.
There was one ‘crime’ during the whole time I was at school, when a fountain pen went missing. Stealing just didn’t happen. I was taught not to shoplift, not to steal, not to behave badly. We weren’t even allowed to drop litter.
Nobody should be allowed to fund political parties unless they pay at least 30% tax on all income above the median wage. If that rule applied, the Tory party would be bankrupted overnight.
I never even dreamt of being a writer because I didn’t feel allowed. When I was a child I was terribly ambitious, but I didn’t know at all what this great thing would become.
Americans don’t want immigration. They don’t want any more. Why can’t we have a home? You see on ‘National Geographic,’ ‘Oh, the indigenous people, they have a home.’ Everyone else can have a home. We are the only people on Earth not allowed to have a home.
The radio even weren’t allowed to say there was a Holocaust and people were being killed right, left and center in these terrible camps.
I used to get out of bed sometimes and feel depressed and watched a lot of reruns on TV to get over it. I should have allowed myself to be a little more human and not worry about trying to be a superwoman.
What I do remember about first grade and that year was that it was very lonely. I didn’t have any friends, and I wasn’t allowed to go to the cafeteria or play on the playground. What bothered me most was the loneliness in school every day.
As a graduate student at Harvard, I had to explain quite a few times that I was allowed to attend a university as a woman in Iran.
I used to travel in tennis shoes; I am just not allowed to anymore. I’m an old hippie from San Francisco.
You see, Africa makes a fool of our idea of justice. It makes a farce of our idea of equality. It mocks our pieties. It doubts our concern. It questions our commitment. Because there is no way we can look at what’s happening in Africa, and if we’re honest, conclude that it would ever be allowed to happen anywhere else.
Life is the only art that we are required to practice without preparation, and without being allowed the preliminary trials, the failures and botches, that are essential for training.
I suppose the White House thinks it’s doing what Big Business wants, but it will lead to vastly increased taxes, because all these guest workers are to be allowed to bring their children.
Development of ‘Bloodborne’ and sinking into the battle of the hunter and the unique horror world was not only an exciting experience but it also allowed me to re-acknowledge the charm of a fantasy world and the intrigue of ‘Dark Souls’ for me.
The conscience of the world is so guilty that it always assumes that people who investigate heresies must be heretics; just as if a doctor who studies leprosy must be a leper. Indeed, it is only recently that science has been allowed to study anything without reproach.
A politician wouldn’t dream of being allowed to call a columnist the things a columnist is allowed to call a politician.
So whatever I might have started to learn at that age was all undone by the next director and next crew in the next cheap picture, because I was allowed to get away with murder.
Generally speaking, actors are allowed NO input. Actors are dumb.
It’s very important that historic cities are allowed to reinvent their future.
From the moment I got to Hollywood, I’ve always felt like I never really got to do what I wanted to do. In general, artists feel that you’re never really allowed to accomplish what you would like to accomplish because there’s just so much of this system that gets in the way; the business gets in the way of the art.
The game against the Vikings back in my second year stands out. It was kind of a turnaround for us. It allowed us to make a run at the playoffs for the first time in quite a while. The memories are so many it’s hard to pin one down.
Much of the messy advertising you see on television today is the product of committees. Committees can criticize advertisements, but they should never be allowed to create them.
It’s the encouragement from fans that drove us and allowed BTS to become who we are.
I think I’d be a million times more successful and more iconic if I was a singer in the ’40s. I’d be allowed a level of mystery, and I think I’d suit that decade.
You’re not allowed to be an eccentric in the world, you have to fit it.
You have to be wired a certain way to be a professional basketball player, and the way my body grew, something happened genetically that allowed me to become a lot more explosive.
When you’re being looked at very hard, it’s very hard to look back. And that made me stop paying attention to the world in a way that allowed me then to write about it.
I appreciated being rich because it allowed me to study in Paris and Geneva.
One of the benefits of playing to small audiences in small clubs for a few years is that you’re allowed to fail.
I think there’s a lot projected on beautiful women, period. At least, maybe this is just my fear, but I do sometimes feel dismissed before I’ve even been allowed to participate. I have moments of feeling really wounded. But I am pretty optimistic, and I do enjoy a lot of my life.
This country gave us hope. This country allowed for us to develop our own identity and to create our own home. And we should not look down on the next person that is trying to do that.
Go out and collect data and, instead of having the answer, just look at the data and see if the data tells you anything. When we’re allowed to do this with companies, it’s almost magical.
Perhaps writers should never be allowed to get together in a workplace context. It’s not like studying computer science, after all. The emotions are at large, and are shared and are questioned. There is a vulnerability.
I feel like in 10 or 15 years’ time our children are going to look back and say, ‘What? You were around when gay people weren’t allowed to get married?’
I’m good at keeping my physical health. My brain is not allowed to have injuries, neither is my body.
Originally, technology was pretty clearly on the side of introversion. It allowed introverts to connect with people, to express their ideas in a less stimulating way: you’re sitting alone behind a computer. But I’m starting to think that the pressure to self-present constantly online is becoming so extreme.
Maryland first allowed early voting during the 2010 primary elections. In November 2012, more than 16 percent of registered voters in Maryland cast their ballots during the early voting period, and some polling places, particularly in our larger jurisdictions, witnessed early voting lines that were hours long.
Explorations into chemistry were done in our basement, sometimes with friends, and my parents must have had quite a bit of confidence in my abilities when they allowed me to experiment with explosive mixtures.
I live in a world where there’s magazines and blogs, and people feel like they are allowed to criticize me, and in the meanest way.
The ideas keep going, you have the material, you cut because there’s a limit to the space allowed to you. And the space is limited because of some other constraints that have to do with money or printing or whatever.
I just really allowed my muse to be my guide and I just go with whatever I’m feeling.
In my house, I’m not allowed to shout at anybody. It’s very strict. It’s a very Christian home.
To become self-aware, people must be allowed to hear a plurality of opinions and then make up their own minds. They must be allowed to say, write and publish whatever they want. Freedom of expression is the most basic, but fundamental, right. Without it, human beings are reduced to automatons.
You’re allowed to rip-off another score so close that it’s ridiculous. In my opinion it’s ridiculous, how closely one can just rip-off a score that happened a year or two earlier.
When I turned fifteen, I remember my father gave me a credit card which I was allowed to use for two things: emergencies and books.
Common is one of the nicest people I’ve ever met, and to describe him as a vile rapper because he has an opinion… just says a lot about the state of America. You are allowed to have an opinion in the United States – he’s never harmed anybody, he just has an opinion about a president that wasn’t good for our country.
There can only be democracy when money is not allowed to be spent in Politics.
The cool part about working for Disney is that they’ve allowed me to be a change agent.
I think the market should reward banks that have been transparent in recognising their problems. I think the tendency of banks to hide the problem assets over a period of three or four years should not be allowed.
My father left his piano at the house when he left, and I wasn’t allowed to play it when he was there because I wasn’t as good as him. So when he left, I was determined to get as good as him, and I taught myself how to play music, and I just stuck with it, and I did it all the time.
I do resent that when you’re in the most cool, powerful time of your life, which is your 40s, you’re put out to pasture. I think women are so much cooler when they’re older. So it’s a drag that we’re not allowed to age.
In February of this year I returned to China to research my next book. The authorities know about the novels of mine that have been published in the west, including the latest one, Beijing Coma, about a student shot in Tiananmen Square, but so far have allowed me to return.
While the recent addition of the National Guard providing a support role manning computers and cameras has allowed more Border Patrol agents to work the field, more agents are still needed.
We do not know what the rules of the game are; all we are allowed to do is to watch the playing. Of course, if we watch long enough, we may eventually catch on to a few of the rules. The rules of the game are what we mean by fundamental physics.
The general interest of the masses might take the place of the insight of genius if it were allowed freedom of action.
I wanted to be an actor when I saw the movie ‘Die Hard.’ I saw Bruce Willis shooting guns and blowing stuff up, and I thought, ‘I wanna do that.’ It really had nothing to do with acting; I just wanted a job that allowed me to do fun, bigger-than-life stuff.
In most conventional novels, God is not allowed to be nuts. Nor are nuts allowed to be God.
With animated film, you have to create the sonic world; there’s nothing there. You get to color things in more and you’re allowed to overreach yourself a little bit more, and it’s great fun.
I love working with the right actor, and if the right actor happens to be unknown, that should be allowed, too, I think.
So the only things I was being allowed to audition for were small roles in comedies. It broke my heart. No one would see me for anything else. I knew, in order to open up my career, I had to leave or that’s all I would ever be given.
Getting bored is not allowed.
I also focus on Bush and his administration – who do a lot of lying – and how a right-wing media has allowed them to get away with a lot of stuff that, in a different media environment, they probably wouldn’t be able to get away with.
But I do not admit the comparison between your slaves and even the lowest class of European free labourers, for the former are allowed the exercise of no faculties but those which they enjoy in common with the brutes that perish.
I think that many people are ashamed when they feel afraid. There’s this thing in our society that you’re not allowed to feel scared. You have to be a man and put on a brave face, but we all have fears.
From computers to information technology to airplanes, it has been America’s unique blend of republican government and free-market capitalism that has allowed us to surpass all other nations in history.
I saw what happened when a dictator was allowed to take over a piece of a country and the country went down the tubes. And I saw the opposite during the war when America joined the fight.
I think I would love a shot at remaking ‘The Philadelphia Story,’ as daunting as it is. I still think it’s fantastic. I love the ’30s comedies because they’re allowed to be both comic and elegant, and the women are so complicated in them.
I had repeatedly made written requests to the Fuehrer that I might be allowed to join the Wehrmacht as an ordinary soldier. He refused to give me this permission.
The industrial food system is so cruel and so horrific in its treatment of animals. It never asks the question: ‘Should a pig be allowed to express its pig-ness?’
My four sons all knew I was a Jew, but they were allowed to be whatever they wanted to be. The only thing important to me was that they be good people who help other people, because all religion should try to make you a better person and a more caring person. Whenever religion does that for you, it’s a good religion.
In the past, when we’ve tried gene therapy, we haven’t had tools that have allowed targeted gene correction.
I started hustling at 12, my mother hustled ahead of me. I was only allowed to because they knew me.
It’s about not letting the internal enemy, the real enemy, have his way because the more he does the stronger he becomes. The film’s about the devastating results that can manifest from the internal enemy being unbridled and allowed to unleash chaos.
To sing with Led Zeppelin has allowed me to offer the best places I could afford to my family and friends!
Most politicians aren’t allowed to express themselves any more.
A woman can laugh and cry in three seconds and it’s not weird. But if a man does it, it’s very disturbing. The way I’d describe it is like this: I have been allowed inside the house of womanhood, but I feel that they wouldn’t let me in any of the interesting rooms.
I believe the record I was allowed to help establish by the side of the president was important.
I do atypical work for a white person, which is that I lead primarily white audiences in discussions on race every day, in workshops all over the country. That has allowed me to observe very predictable patterns. And one of those patterns is this inability to tolerate any kind of challenge to our racial reality.
I felt there needed to be a show for teenagers that didn’t make them feel judged. ‘Skins’ never tried to preach. It allowed young people to make their own decisions about what to do and whether it was right or wrong. Young people really respond to that, and that’s what sets ‘Skins’ apart.
On our Southern border, Joe Biden has allowed hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of illegal aliens into our country.
My view on Democrats is that they’re fascists disguised as liberals, or liberal moderates. You’re not allowed to say anything they don’t agree with. You’re not allowed to do anything.
We were very happy when a South African court, which had previously ruled against us, took another look and decided that this material was not obscene and allowed it into the country.
I just think there’s always room for humanity in acting, one can only hope, so when you bring in the whole life of a person that’s playing a character, then surprises happen and are allowed to happen, and so it makes it more interesting.
The majority of critics, I would say, are people who have no clue what they’re talking about and have never been in a wrestling ring. They’ve never been a public speaker. They wouldn’t even know how to lock up with me if I allowed them to.
I have made some mistakes. No, a lot of mistakes. If you want to develop a new thing, a lot of mistakes will be inevitable. We should be allowed to make mistakes.
I think in some ways we have allowed other people to set the agenda. Other people to define who we are.
It may be that the most striking thing about members of my literary generation in retrospect will be that we were allowed to say absolutely anything without fear of punishment.
I was addicted to the original ‘Star Trek’ when I was growing up, because of my dad. We grew up in St. Helens, Oregon and we weren’t allowed to watch a lot of TV.
If it helps me in the way that if this movie is successful, I get to make more films, great, and the more films that I make and the more interest that I’m allowed to cover, the better for me and the better, hopefully, for the people who like to watch me.
No state should be allowed to profess partnership with the global coalition against terror, while continuing to aid, abet and sponsor terrorism.
I am about to vote. I am about to do something that human beings are rarely allowed to do. I am doing something that did not exist until America.

Ever since that day when I was 11 years old, and I wasn’t allowed in a photo because I wasn’t wearing a tennis skirt, I knew that I wanted to change the sport.
My wife volunteered her services as Red Cross nurse, insisting upon being sent to the front, in order to be as near me as could be, but it developed later that no nurse was allowed to go farther than the large troop hospitals far in the rear of the actual operations.
I would recommend ‘Lesson Of The Evil’ to be given as a DVD gift on a child’s 15th birthday. In Japan, children under 15 are not allowed to watch it. Plus, ‘Lesson Of The Evil’ is one film where the older you get, the more you will be able to understand and enjoy the film.
I am, as a European, absolutely shocked by European people. I am also shocked by European nationalist people. They have allowed themselves to be so emasculated so silently.
I was raised by my mom. My dad was always traveling, but she allowed me and encouraged me to be close to my dad. So I grew up with three parents: my mom, my dad and my stepmom. Ninety percent of the time I was with my mom, and 10 percent was with my dad.
I belonged to the generation that grew up under National Socialism, and was blinded and led astray – and allowed itself to be led astray.
I worked for George Bush. I’m proud to have worked for him. I think that a lot of the most controversial things we did, that people didn’t like and – and criticized us for, things like the terror surveillance program or the enhanced interrogation techniques, were things that allowed us to save lives.
My faith in God has been the rudder that has allowed me to soar above the fray and to stay grounded and to learn from my mistakes.

When Basquiat was hanging out with Madonna and Fab Five Freddy, and all those worlds were colliding, people have to realize hip-hop and the arts were like this ’cause we both were outcasts: we wasn’t allowed inside the galleries or inside Yankee Stadium. We were writing in the street and making music.
Girls need to learn that they’re allowed to say no and to speak up.
As soon as a redwood is cut down or burned, it sends up a crowd of eager, hopeful shoots, which, if allowed to grow, would in a few decades attain a height of a hundred feet, and the strongest of them would finally become giants as great as the original tree.

We would be able to deal with Islam if we were allowed to deal with it in the way we think we should.
My father, Melvin van Peebles, and my mother were both very active politically when I was a kid. The first time I was allowed to stay up late was to attend a demonstration.
Zionism was originally a rebellion against religious Judaism and the PLO Charter was essentially secularist. But because the conflict was allowed to fester without a resolution, religion got sucked into the escalating cycle of violence and became part of the problem.
Men are allowed to have passion and commitment for their work… a woman is allowed that feeling for a man, but not her work.
My family, they’re story tellers. My mom is Irish, and my dad is Italian. In my family, we weren’t allowed to watch TV while we ate – we had to sit around the table and tell stories about our day.
My whole family has been such a great support, and they’re the ones who have kept me grounded and allowed me to be who I am today.
It would be easy for someone to think growing up in a small town would be like ‘Footloose’ or something, that it would be, ‘No dancing allowed!’ all the time, but it was quite the opposite. People always got excited for me and my successes and supported me even though I was a little weirdo goofball.
The fans gave us the wings that allowed us to be where we are. So we’re always thankful, and we know we’re here thanks to our fans.
Loads of my friends are lesbians, and it really annoys me that gay people aren’t allowed to get married in most parts of America. I’d go on a march for gay rights any time.

One of the difficulties of not knowing for so long whether we were doing a fifth season or not was that we weren’t really allowed to go out shopping for work.
In movies, you don’t get reactions: Live, when you do a joke, you know in a second whether it’s good or bad. But in a movie, since no one is allowed to laugh or do anything, when you’re done with a scene, you’re left asking, ‘Was that funny?’
In the happy scenes there were really fun times. Sean would say really funny stuff because he likes to improv. I would want to laugh, but you are not allowed to do that during the take.
In fact, I was one of the few trusted people that Lucy allowed to play with their kids. I spent time at their summer home, rode horses at their ranch, and swam at their beach house. I even spent a Christmas with them at Palm Springs one year.
Your home should be your home. People shouldn’t be allowed to use whatever crazy lenses they use to catch you waking up in the morning.
Wisconsin’s kids shouldn’t be allowed to fail just because Washington is failing them.
With Rock Band, you can play along to Black Sabbath or Nirvana and possibly find new ways of appreciating their artistry by being allowed to perform parallel to it. Rock Band puts you inside the guts of a song.
I don’t think my dad really knew what to do with me, as a daughter. He treated me like a boy; my brother and I were treated the same. He didn’t do kid stuff. There were no kid’s menus; you weren’t allowed to order off the kid’s menu at dinner – we had to try something from the adult menu.
I was allowed to ring the bell for five minutes until everyone was in assembly. It was the beginning of power.
I’m a terrible cook. I am not allowed to go in the kitchen anymore after I almost burned down the apartment in New York.
Therefore, if one were to consider that there was virtually no possibility of success through the US-Japan negotiations, the military and economic pressures would only force Japan into further crisis if time were allowed to pass in vain.
I think there are people who use classical music to say, ‘I am better than you, because I know all the rules and you don’t.’ You’re not allowed to have fun or entertain.

The first year we actually did a lot of night shooting and the writers weren’t even allowed on location.
I had a happy childhood in the suburbs of L.A. My parents instilled in us an appreciation of history, art and, most important, Motown. Jarron and I weren’t allowed to listen to rap until we were 12. After our birthday I dashed to Target and bought DJ Quik’s album ‘Quik Is the Name.’ I memorized every line.
Once a word has been allowed to escape, it cannot be recalled.
We also have 2 horses, but they’re not allowed in the house.
I fell in love with reading when I was allowed to choose whatever books I wanted to check out of the library. I was around nine years old when I began choosing my own books in earnest.
I have a scheme for stopping war. It’s this – no nation is allowed to enter a war till they have paid for the last one.
With ‘Acid Rap,’ I allowed myself to be really open-minded and free with who I allowed into my musical space. I wanted to make a cohesive product, but I also just want to make a bunch of dope songs inspired by whatever sounds I liked.
Acting gave me the opportunity to do outrageous things. It allowed me to be sad, happy, angry and lustful, even if it was just vicariously.
If I pass away one day, I am happy because I tried to do my best. My sport allowed me to do so much because it’s the biggest sport in the world.

We’re allowed to say wonderful things about the Royal Family in the House of Commons. What you’re not allowed to say is: anything that might be truthful, but that might upset them. So from time to time I’ve been pulled up because I’ve said things which I think are important.
Most of us remember adolescence as a kind of double negative: no longer allowed to be children, we are not yet capable of being adults.
Looking back at all the people I have insulted, I am mildly surprised that I am still allowed to exist.
In many senses, ‘Borgen’ was a very democratic show. I was always invited to hear the writers’ thoughts for the next episodes and allowed to comment on them.
Yeah, I think it’s an absolute disaster that Australia, the government, allowed kangaroo culling.
I’ve made mistakes. Like, bringing people to your level who don’t deserve to be there. They’re trying to bite off your so-called fame, make a name off of you. I think I did a lot of that – allowed people to be relevant in my life who really aren’t relevant to me at all.
I think that it’s very, very hard for the NRA to continue to defend the position that people who are on the terrorist watch list should be allowed to buy firearms in this country. That’s their position. I don’t know how they stand by it.
But I’ve got to think of myself as the luckiest guy. Robert Johnson only had one album’s worth of work as his legacy. That’s all that life allowed him.
I took a job at the pool in order to earn the five cents a day it cost to swim. I counted wet towels. As a bonus, I was allowed to swim during lunchtime.

It is an interesting fact that during my tour I was never allowed access to computers, radios, or anything else that I might damage through curiosity, or perhaps something more sinister.
I know I always had a lot of energy growing up and I had to put it somewhere. Theater allowed me to really feel things, to laugh, to cry, to explode outward. I could do anything and it was totally accepted and appreciated. If I hadn’t gone into the theater, I probably would have been a psychotic killer.
When music is allowed to take the place of devotion and prayer, it is a terrible curse. Young people assemble together to sing, and, although professed Christians, frequently dishonor God and their faith by their frivolous conversation and their choice of music.

Youth is when you’re allowed to stay up late on New Year’s Eve. Middle age is when you’re forced to.
We grew to know the meaning of love. That is what allowed me and my family to stay close together.

After a shooting spree, they always want to take the guns away from the people who didn’t do it. I sure as hell wouldn’t want to live in a society where the only people allowed guns are the police and the military.
I’m a humble kid. I grew up with Filathlitikos. There were some people in Filathlitikos that taught to me how to stay humble. It was coach Tzivas that never allowed me to get carried away. That’s who I am.

If the so called ‘democratic’ individuals out there really believe in their talk about diversity, they should let those with truly different opinions be allowed to talk freely in public, too.

In order to be creative you have to be allowed to fail.

In so much of politics you’re not allowed to disagree with what’s been agreed.
My brother Trevor is theatrically trained. I used to watch him when I was younger and I was in love with it. It just seemed really fun to be someone else. So I begged my mom; she was hesitant, but she eventually allowed me. And it turned out well, I guess.
We must learn, and especially we Germans, that resistance is not only possible and allowed in dictatorships. There is resistance that man must perform every day.

I love baseball. The game allowed me the influence to impact kids in a positive way. This gives me a chance to talk to some social issues.

It is more or less impossible to record music in prison, and the only music I could record was electronic music, when I was allowed to have a synthesizer for a few months in 1994 or 1995 and in 1998.
The one that was most fun was That’s My Bush; the part that I did for Comedy Central. That was a hoot. That was more fun that one should be allowed to have.
I think that technology has both introduced new sounds but also allowed an increasingly painterly approach to recording music as you can now paint over what you’ve done and more and more refine an existing performance.
We weren’t allowed to have secular music in the house growing up. I was home-schooled, and gospel was the only choice we had.
The iPhone is like ‘omakase’, the style of sushi where the chef chooses what you’re going to eat, and might even tell you how to eat it – no wasabi allowed on this, no soy sauce allowed on that. Definitely no California rolls.
I think a child should be allowed to take his father’s or mother’s name at will on coming of age. Paternity is a legal fiction.
My mom allowed me to take an old burlap bag and fill it with moss, corn stalks and rocks, then hang it from a tree and spend an hour a day punching my heavy bag.
One thing that’s unique to ‘Uncharted’ is something called ‘chasing picture,’ where Naughty Dog run a section of gameplay and I’m allowed to ad-lib over it. We call it ‘panning for gold.’

In Sweden it’s not allowed to say good things about yourself.

As a free person, I ought to be allowed if I’m dying to take something.
Look, it’s to the point where kids are getting Botox. It’s insane. We’re not allowed to age.

‘Blacks were too scared to do anything, but they came out to greet James Meredith’: That would have been the story in the evening news if I hadn’t gotten myself shot. I got shot, and that allowed the movement protest thing to take over then and do their thing.
I’m fortunate for where I come from because even though I didn’t grow up with a silver spoon in my mouth, it allowed me to appreciate any little thing that I have.
Ron allowed us to see right away the private piece of a person about to become very public. I suspect we’re going to see more of her very private world – Laura’s private experience. I’m not sure yet how public she’s going to be about the actions she’s going to have to take.
The dead should be judged like criminals, impartially, but they should be allowed the benefit of the doubt.
A great deal has been accomplished by the team, and I do think it important that it goes on and it is allowed to reach its full conclusion. In fact, I really believe it ought to be better resourced and totally focused on WMD; that that is important to do it.
A sword, a spade, and a thought should never be allowed to rust.
I’ve learnt that if I tell myself I’m not allowed something, I binge on it later. So if I want chocolate, I have chocolate. If I want biscuits, I have biscuits. I love cake. I just love cake.
Objective journalism is one of the main reasons that American politics has been allowed to be so corrupt for so long.
I love horror movies! I’ve loved horror movies since I was about eight years old, not that an 8-year-old should be watching ‘The Shining’, but I was allowed to for some reason.

I had started law school at Florida State University as a part-timer. I would go two quarters, and they allowed me to drop out to play baseball, and then I’d get readmitted in September. I was convinced I was going to be a lawyer and was using my baseball salary to pay my way through school.
Women ought to have representatives, instead of being arbitrarily governed without any direct share allowed them in the deliberations of government.
I don’t watch much television. My old TV agent used to always get mad at me because he’d send me out on auditions and I’d be like, ‘What’s this show?’ and he’d be like, ‘It’s literally the top show on television.’ I wasn’t allowed to watch TV as a kid.
There are a lot of people who helped make Queen Latifah who she is today. I don’t forget, but a lot of people do and get big heads. My mom will make me walk the dogs or take out the trash when I go home. I’m not allowed to get a big head; I’ve still got to do the simple things in life.
I had wanted to be a novelist for so long, but I didn’t have a story. That story came from the death of my father, and wrestling with how to help my mother. Writing it allowed me to work through my fears, frustrations and desires. I wanted control over the situation. And I wasn’t sure I would have any in real life.

Radio allowed people to act with their hearts and minds.
I’ve studied various schools of thought… I acknowledge that some Muslims consider music prohibited, but I’ve found a lot of evidence from the life of the Prophet to show that he allowed certainly, but even encouraged, music at certain times.
When we are angry or depressed in our creativity, we have misplaced our power. We have allowed someone else to determine our worth, and then we are angry at being undervalued.
The art of living does not consist in preserving and clinging to a particular mode of happiness, but in allowing happiness to change its form without being disappointed by the change; happiness, like a child, must be allowed to grow up.
I’ve said it before: Barack Obama is really the president Richard Nixon always wanted to be. You know, he’s been allowed to act unilaterally in a way that we’ve fought for decades.
‘Drag Race’ has made a lot more people into fans of drag, and that’s allowed local communities to grow and flourish, but it’s up to individual queens to share the spotlight with their communities. I definitely want to be one of the people who does that.
I’m very hairy, and men in film and TV are no longer allowed to be hairy.
I cannot remember a time in opposition – I am talking about the last four years – when we have done less work on policy and more on slogans. But because of my European views I wasn’t allowed to participate.

I dropped to the lowest point when I allowed my children to go down that ramp into the water without me.
In today’s world, having money has allowed people who are extremely uncool to think that they’re cool and carry it like that. People who really are cool and people who really are artists and have ideas have to literally turn in their cool card to society just to make it past the age of 28.
My apartment is my stage, and my bedroom is my stage – they’re just not stages you’re allowed to see.

A lot of my friends are struggling musicians. Being a struggling actor, it’s just frustrating because you’re not allowed to do what you want to do.
It amazes me that parents are allowed to raise kids. There’s so much power and often very little accountability.
It would be nice if models were allowed to be a more healthy weight – for the models, and for the young women who look up to them. We were athletic and healthy, and we looked like women.
Lebanon is restless, Syria got its walking papers, Egypt is scheduling elections with more than one candidate, and even Saudi Arabia, whose rulers are perhaps more terrified of women than rulers anywhere else in the world, allowed limited municipal elections.

If you are not allowed to laugh in heaven, I don’t want to go there.
Fear is not in the habit of speaking truth; when perfect sincerity is expected, perfect freedom must be allowed; nor has anyone who is apt to be angry when he hears the truth any cause to wonder that he does not hear it.
I have never seen a game’s graphics look so sharp and clean. The sound design for the game is also unique on the Xbox. The memory on this system allowed us to provide the user with 5.1 Dolby surround sound for home theatre owners.
Things are coming to a pretty pass when religion is allowed to invade private life.
I think the show has sort of given me a name in this business and allowed a lot of people the opportunity to see what I can do, and it’s just sort of like a sweet starting point.

Working with guys allowed me to at least understand guys in a way that I could then say to women, ‘Look, here’s what I’ve learned about men.’
As a young boy growing up in rural India, most of what I knew of the world was what I could see around me. But each night, I would look at the Moon – it was impossibly far away, yet it held a special attraction because it allowed me to dream beyond my village and country, and think about the rest of the world and space.
Yoga reduced my stress and bodily tension. It allowed me to bring my body back into balance, to emerge from my fertility struggle with my sense of self esteem and self worth intact, and to forge a stronger bond with my husband.

I am a big man, but I’ve allowed my condition to deteriorate by being overweight.

In such a case secrecy must be absolute to be effective, and although mere vague curiosity induced many persons of my intimate acquaintance to ask to be allowed to just go in and have a peep, I never admitted anyone.
The reason why you were allowed to get away with that in the ’60s and ’70s is because this country’s racist administrative policies were such that rich white kids were getting exemptions. I said no exemptions.
I want to remind people that the Nazis weren’t able to take the Jews to the crematoriums immediately. The German people wouldn’t have allowed for it. Instead, the Nazis had to change public opinion. They marginalized the Jewish people, disparaged them, and made them objects of contempt.
We’re starting to push the envelope in terms of the expectations, and you can also have your own style, personality and sense of humor, because now we’re allowed to.

If Obamacare is allowed to stand – and Congress is allowed to make the purchase of government-endorsed health insurance compulsory – there will be no meaningful limit on Washington’s reach into the lives of the American people. That is certainly not what the Founders intended.
Saudi Arabia has allowed training on its soil of American forces.
Ever since I felt the baby kick, it’s such an amazing feeling, and it’s really allowed me to embrace it. Once you feel this movement inside, it’s just a whole different experience, so I love it now. It was tough at the beginning, but I’m past all that, and I love it now.
Delaware is the only state east of the Rockies that is allowed under federal law to offer sports betting.

Every audition is different, but I get incredibly nervous and insecure and worked up for however long I have to prep – that’s when I get to spin. But you’re not allowed to spin once you enter the room. Doubt really can’t enter the room when you’re auditioning – unless it’s part of the character.
I’m a free agent. I haven’t allowed any promoters to have exclusive options on my fight. I don’t need a promoter.
I didn’t feel compromised as an actor, and allowed other people’s fingerprints all over that aspect.
My father wasn’t a very good lawyer. He thought the law was sacred and something that was meant to help people. He didn’t charge people like he should have… which is why I was allowed to play bars and strip joints when I was 14.
After so many books and so many years of writing, I have a good idea of my strengths and weaknesses. I love the process of writing and, if I allowed myself, I would write far too much every day. One weakness which I’ve struggled to overcome is my tendency to having my characters ruminate for pages.
Linda Hamilton is my hero. She was so tough and so strong and so vulnerable at the same time. I think that’s what woman action figures are allowed to be: vulnerable, in a way that women are.

It was the 31st of August in 1962 that eighteen of us traveled twenty-six miles to the county courthouse in Indianola to try to register to become first-class citizens. We was met in Indianola by policemen, Highway Patrolmen, and they only allowed two of us in to take the literacy test at the time.
With Facebook, you’re not really allowed to be unhappy. Think about it: There’s only a like button. Yes, you can be angry, but it’s only lighthearted rage. On Reddit, perhaps because you can be anonymous, people are willing to be openly sad or angry. They are more honest.
If I am not allowed to laugh in heaven, I don’t want to go there.
For far too long we’ve allowed the other side to paint us as racist, as sexist, inhumane war mongers – well, today as a conservative black Republican and former solider, I’m here to set that record straight.
AIDS was allowed to happen. It is a plague that need not have happened. It is a plague that could have been contained from the very beginning.
The fact that someone came forward and offered $1.25 million to make a movie was astonishing. We were also allowed to keep many of the original stage cast.
I think, in general, this country makes a huge deal about nudity and not a big enough deal about violence.
