I played American Legion ball starting when I was 14. But I didn’t catch until I was 17. I was 75-3 as a high school pitcher, but it was like everybody knew that I was supposed to be a catcher.

When you see a person, do you just concentrate on their looks? It’s just a first impression. Then there’s someone who doesn’t catch your eye immediately, but you talk to them and they become the most beautiful thing in the world. The greatest actors aren’t what you would call beautiful sex symbols.
We don’t appreciate luck in life when things are going well. No matter how smart I am and how I prepare, there are things that catch you off guard.
You always have those moments of standing outside your own life and thinking, ‘This is kind of bizarre and quite wonderful.’ And I think those moments always catch you off guard.

I’ll just say that America – us included – has a long way to go to catch up with the animated work being done in a handful of countries, namely Japan.

In this perfect world, there are certain imperfections that catch your eye. That’s what works for me. I don’t concentrate on being perfect, but instead put that effort behind my craft and being true to myself. I don’t conform to pressures outside of me. I am confident about myself.
If the skies fall, one may hope to catch larks.

Don’t let the ball hit you. Catch it or get out of the way. And if you get out of the way, that’s when you have to stop playing.
I think tax is tough in this country. Every time I sign a cheque to pay tax, it drives me crazy. But at the same time, I’m happy to live here. I want to have a good medical system, good education, good roads, so it’s a Catch 22. I hate it, but it’s a necessary evil.
I think a lot of things will be self-correcting, even in America. After all, human societies are essentially self-organizing emergent systems. The catch is, how much disorder will we have to endure while this re-self-organizing process occurs.
I thought it was magic to be able to catch something identically on tape and then be able to play around with it, run it backwards; I thought that was great for years.

In New York, people are pretty cool, and you don’t catch a lot of grief. But in certain spots, man, it’s over. If I stand in the same place for more than 20 minutes or 10 minutes or something, there’ll be 40 people standing there, all screaming something different.
The nation is trying to catch up with a rapidly changing world.
To tell you the truth, I believe everything – tigers, trees, stones – are sentient in one way or another. You’d never catch me idly kicking a stone, for example.

From the rough, I’d use a 6-iron, play the ball back an inch or two and swing down on a steeper angle to catch the ball first. It also helps to aim slightly left and open the clubface at address. You’ll get more height on the shot, and the club will cut through the grass more easily.
Quite a few people who are in the media and in control of the big money seem to want to see these Southeast Asian countries – and, in particular, Malaysia – stop trying to catch up with their superiors and to know their place.

I changed my thinking on the whole subject of what it is to be attractive. It’s fine, but I know that ultimately what I am and who I am is not cheekbones and a jawline, if you catch my drift. I ultimately know that who I am is not directly proportional to abs or straight teeth.
Having grown up in different countries – Jamaica, Italy, U.K. – I catch the accents quite easily. In the U.S., they don’t know where I am from!

As far as the leading man/romantic lead, I’ll tell you what, I really enjoyed my experience more than I thought or imagined I would on ‘Catch and Release.’ God bless them if they want to give me another shot at that. I would love to have that as something I can go to on occasion.
We who were born were not witnesses to our birth: like death, it is something we are forever after trying to catch sight of.
I think that every show on television has its place. I think Married With Children or, I don’t know, The Nanny… some people want to go home, turn on the TV and be able to iron their clothes or grab a sandwich. Come out and catch a joke and not have to follow the story.
Drag me to the moon, to catch a star and seize its brilliance as I’m swept up in amorphous dust.

Comedies always need to be provocative and catch your attention in a way that dramas don’t have to.
In 2004 in England, there was one catch that was very special to me. I was bowling in a league match, and the batsman hit the ball over my head. I had to run back to between mid-off and mid-on to take the catch, and I did.
I get ‘The New Yorker,’ and I’m usually about three issues behind. But I do catch up. The problem is that it always seems like homework, but then you start reading it and go, ‘Why am I not doing this all the time? These are such great stories!’ But, yeah, that stack gets so big and dense.
Baseball is the president tossing out the first ball of the season. And a scrubby schoolboy playing catch with his dad on a Mississippi farm.
As a child, I used to spend nearly all my summer holidays with my aunt in Wales, and we used to catch mackerel in a boat and then cook them on board.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they are going to catch you in next.

That whole thing: the paparazzi, a gazillion magazines. You can’t lie on a beach. God forbid your bikini rides up too far or you’ve eaten too many doughnuts and they catch you wiping your mouth. That must be exhausting, that lack of privacy.
The only sort of descriptive adjective or catch phrase for my music would be ‘eclectic.’
Why the fairy tale of Willie Mays making a brilliant World Series catch, and then dashing off to play stickball in the street with his teenage pals. That’s baseball. So is the husky voice of a doomed Lou Gehrig saying, ‘I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of this earth.’
In ’05, ’06, ’07 and ’08, I wasn’t throwing any changeups at all. Maybe two or three per game. In ’09, I started playing with the grip, started throwing it in the bullpen and playing catch. It came out really good.
It’s not that I’m trying to write another ‘7 Years’ or a new version of ‘Mama Said.’ Songs just kind of come out of nowhere, and you need to catch them when they do.

I can stand in a crystal stream without another human around me and cast all day long, and if I never catch a single fish, I can come home and still feel like I had a wonderful time. It’s the being there that’s important.

I don’t believe in the catch weight.
And in an Ashes series the best approach as a player is to not get caught up in feeling pressure for your position but to think only about the greater cause. How can I contribute? It could be a single moment, like a blinding catch or a run out. Think only of the team’s needs.
Surfing isn’t really in my blood. It’s hard to catch a big wave in Billingham.

The first thing I do is I check my emails and my texts. I guess I shouldn’t feel guilty about it at this point; it’s kind of the norm. Sometimes I’ll bounce around Twitter. And if I have time, I’ll catch up on the news, usually on ‘Huffington Post’ or ‘Salon.’
I love to study the many things that grow below the corn stalks and bring them back to the studio to study the color. If one could only catch that true color of nature – the very thought of it drives me mad.

I think music is a big, big wide world, and I am voyager on this particular ship in this sea of wild music, and I’m gonna dive in and find as many fish as I can and catch them all. I love music.

I hope people don’t compare 2D and 3D because 3D’s new, it’s unfair to compare to 2D which is really sophisticated, even when we’re jaded about it. 3D just began, give it a chance, let the equipment and projection system catch up and be better, let the price go down, let more filmmakers get a hold of it more easily.
Whenever I catch a chunk of an Adam Sandler comedy on cable, it looks as badly shot and goofily tossed off as a Jerry Lewis gag reel once he hit the late downslide with ‘Hardly Working’ and ‘Cracking Up.’

I think there’s a time and place to watch an independent film, or catch up on a French action film on your laptop, or Netflix it, or download it, or watch it on-demand. But I think we also have to maintain the sacredness of the movie theatre as church – especially with event screenings.

My greatest moment as a jock occurred when I was 14 and playing punch ball in front of my house on Albemarle Road near East 17th Street in Brooklyn.

What you see with me is what you get. I don’t have to conduct a poll to figure out what I’m going to tell somebody. I don’t have to hire some consultant to come up with some cute catch phrase. I just call it like I see it.
There was no race – but to the extent that there was an arms competition, it was almost entirely on the Soviet side, first to catch up and then to surpass the Americans.

The way to catch a knuckleball is to wait until it stops rolling and then pick it up.

If you go back and look at the first issue of ‘Indestructible Hulk,’ if you have a sharp eye, you’ll catch something that I totally forgot to put in there. In my horror, I only realized after the fact that I took totally for granted that everyone in the world knows what triggers the transformation.
It’s always interesting to be playing against some of my best friends and some of my longtime teammates. You get to see them before the game and after the game and it’s always nice to catch up but when the whistle blows it’s sort of all business on the field.
There is only one Mariano Rivera. There won’t be another person who will come along and do what he did. No one does it like him. It was an honor to catch him and play alongside him for as long as I did.
Bottom trawling is a ghastly process that brings untold damage to sea beds that support ocean life. It’s akin to using a bulldozer to catch a butterfly, destroying a whole ecosystem for the sake of a few pounds of protein. We wouldn’t do this on land, so why do it in the oceans?
People think: ‘If this photographer’s looking like a big jerk-off, maybe it’s okay if I do.’ I like to catch my subjects off balance a bit.
Fishing is boring, unless you catch an actual fish, and then it is disgusting.

I always say, ‘Let your experiment speak to you.’ What I mean by that is I – actually, we, or, at least, I’m not smart enough, actually, to guess how nature is working, but by looking and doing the right experiments and paying close attention to the subtleties of it, you start to catch on.
Dad played with me a great deal, as dads should do, and our chief sport was baseball. He bought me a hardball when I was three years old, and he used to sit in a rocker on the front porch while I sat on the grass in the yard, and we’d play catch by the hour.
Man, I have had so much plastic surgery, I don’t even recognize myself, sometimes. If I catch a glimpse in a window or something, I think it is someone else.

I always felt a bit different. When I’m with boys, I feel comfortable. When I’m with girls, I catch feelings. It’s not anything I can control.

Conservatism is not about leaving people behind. Conservatism is about empowering people to catch up, to give them the tools at their disposable that make it possible for them to access all the hope, all the promise, all the opportunity that America offers. And our programs to help them should reflect that.
It’s tough when you get beat. You have to be able to come back mentally. Sometimes the offense is going to win, but you have to be able to be level-headed and not get too upset when they do catch the ball.
When the game is on, I want to be on the field, but I’m willing to catch, walk, run. I just want to be there. I’ll even be water boy.

People talk about that catch and, I’ve said this many times, that I’ve made better catches than that many times in regular season. But of course in my time, you didn’t have a lot of television during the regular season. A lot of people didn’t see me do a lot of things.
You surprise yourself on some balls off the bat. You don’t think you have a chance to catch it. And then your natural ability just takes over.
You’d be surprised what you’d catch on my playlist.
Coastlines are very effective ways of catching plastic. But the thing is, in those vast ocean garbage patches, there’s simply no coastlines to catch any plastic. So we built our own artificial coastline.

I like to catch fish and release them. I probably haven’t killed a fish that I’ve caught in sport fishing for 20 years. No reason to kill it. You know, just take it and release it.
Dog – a kind of additional or subsidiary Deity designed to catch the overflow and surplus of the world’s worship.
The Weezer ‘Blue’ Album is a classic. I think My Morning Jacket’s ‘Circuital’ is a great album to have. Any Led Zeppelin album. Pink Floyd ‘The Dark Side Of The Moon’ or ‘Animals.’ I always catch myself at concerts being like, ‘Oh, I just stared at the drummer for 15 straight minutes.’ I study them.
There were some that said if you hung in long enough, the world would catch on, and they have.
I don’t know – sometimes I catch myself being dark, and it’s annoying. I think, ‘Get over it.’ I bore myself. But sometimes, like everybody, I’m sure I am obsessive.

Jazz sometimes can be really complicated and inaccessible to people because they don’t know what to start with. You can start with something that you love, but if you start with something that you hate, then it’s like, ‘You know what, I hate jazz.’ It took me a lot of time to catch on to jazz, too.
