I used to think that if I had a choice between writing well and living well, I would choose the former. But now I think that’s sheer lunacy. Writing weighs so much less, in the great cosmic equation, than living.
Nicole Krauss
It’s a great feeling to be recognized by your peers. It’s an even better feeling to be welcomed and accepted by country radio and its listeners. If desire is any part of this equation, then I’m a contender!
Chely Wright
When you ask your white friends what their cultural heritage is, they don’t just say white. They give you a math equation. ‘Well, I’m a third German and a fourth Irish and one-sixteenth Welsh and one-fortieth Native American for college applications.’
Hari Kondabolu
Parents have to be connected to their children and know what they need. When they’re happy. When they’re not. Discipline is only one part of the equation.

India may be the soul of world cricket, but IPL is its commercial heart. Just as ‘Who Wants to be a Millionaire’ changed the ground rules for quiz shows by injecting a massive dose of money into the equation, IPL has changed the dynamics of the cricket economy.
Vikas Swarup
I came along in the ’60s having absorbed as much as I could up until then and added my own tastes and search into the equation. I guess that’s how I see ‘Now He Sings, Now He Sobs’ in relation to the development of jazz in general.
Chick Corea
My father had to flee from what is today Pakistan when he was a child, and he became a manager at IBM, and any item of consumption he would acquire was a direct measurement of his success in life. But that same equation wasn’t going to work for me – I was quite clear about that in my early teens.
Tino Sehgal
I see people who work on their look and they work on their poster and their website and you know, the music will speak for itself no matter what. So if you put maybe like 95% of your energy on music and 5% on playing out and telling people about it. That’s kind of a good equation.
Kaki King
It’s true in everything, not just in drag: To be a success, you have to understand the landscape. You have to know thyself, and you have to know your history so that you can draw from people who have figured out the equation you are faced with. It’s not rocket science.
Sully’s’ upbeat message is that we still need humans. It was the heroically human Sully who saved those people, not some cold equation written on a chalkboard.
Greg Gutfeld
Learning by doing, peer-to-peer teaching, and computer simulation are all part of the same equation.

The best piece of advice I ever got from anyone was when Spike Jonze said, ‘Take money out of the equation.’ And that’s actually when Vice started making lots of money. That’s when I stopped worrying about money and started worrying about what I wanted to do.
Shane Smith
It’s not enough for Hollywood to make a bunch of gay movies. That’s obviously a big part of the equation, but then gay people have to show up for those movies.
Billy Eichner
I think equation guessing might be the best method to proceed to obtain the laws for the part of physics which is presently unknown. Yet, when I was much younger, I tried this equation guessing, and I have seen many students try this, but it is very easy to go off in wildly incorrect and impossible directions.
Richard P. Feynman
During the mid-1990s, I collected thousands of hackberry fruits from trees all across the Midwest. I chemically analyzed each seed in order to formulate an equation relating the hackberry’s mineral makeup to the summer temperature under which it grew.
Hope Jahren
Buying found objects means repurposing something that was already made years before, sometimes decades before. It strikes a nice balance between the new and used equation we should strive for in our lives.
Nate Berkus
When you take the individual out of the equation, then you’re making programming based on some marketer’s idea of what will sell, and not based on the idea of what an individual would like.
John Seabrook
‘The Lord of the Rings,’ obviously, had a huge, huge impact on me. I read a lot of ‘Hardy Boys,’ also. I liked the equation, that it was always the same but a little bit different. There’s something comforting about those books.
Blake Crouch
Much in the way Olympic athletes optimize their game by paying an enormous – borderline maniacal – amount of attention to things like diet, exercise, sleep, and of course the essential R&R, we all would do well to pay more attention to those key aspects of our lives that comprise our overall health equation.
David Agus
So what I’m saying is why don’t we think about changing Schrodinger’s equation at some level when masses become too big at the level that you might have to worry about Einstein’s general relativity.
Roger Penrose
God is not a dead equation!
Muhammad Iqbal
When you write, you take the ball and you hold it up to the light and you turn it slowly, and let people draw their own conclusions. And try to bring empathy to all sides of the equation.
Justin Cronin
Postmodernists believe that truth is myth, and myth, truth. This equation has its roots in pop psychology. The same people also believe that emotions are a form of reality. There used to be another name for this state of mind. It used to be called psychosis.
Brad Holland
You have to be in movies that make money to be offered work. Basically that’s the equation. There’s no real way around that. That said, you don’t ever make decisions solely for that reason.

The super PACs have brought an element of fear into the equation. The fact that they can bring this money into the campaign, basically ambush you out of nowhere, and you’ll have no way to fight back.
John Sarbanes
I’m totally down with insurrection in the street. I’ve had a great time with that over the years. Insurrection in the voting booth is the other part of the equation.
Jello Biafra
I always wanted to do things on my own terms, and unfortunately in this industry, that’s not something that is easily given. You’re at the mercy of other people, but then you still have that drive to continue on. That’s an equation for a lot of heartbreak.
Haley Bennett
Here’s the thing: I’m not beautiful. I mean, I’m a perfectly normal-looking Jewish guy. My face has never been my fortune, nor has my body… physical beauty has never been part of my equation. It’s just not on my shopping list.
David Rakoff
To be safe at the expense of the liberty of other people is a difficult equation.

In our society, people look at women who are tenacious, smart, attractive, and talented and for whatever reason say, ‘There must be something wrong with that equation. She couldn’t possibly be all of those things at once.’
Gretchen Carlson
It’s too much of a responsibility, too much stress, and to do justice to Sri in my first film as a director would be really tough. We can’t separate our personal equation and become professionals on the sets. So no, I’m not directing Sri in my first film.
Boney Kapoor
If you or the devil or anyone else could remove you from Christ’s hand, then that entity would be greater than Christ, and the eternal life He gave you would not be eternal at all. That’s an impossible equation.
Tony Evans
I think, in the United States, we talk about race as a black and white issue… We’re generally talking about it as if it’s a binary equation whereas, in fact, there’s more than two races and, in fact, those races blend together. There are a lot of different ways that people identify.
Celeste Ng
I’d never imagined myself in a band. So the fact that I’ve had such a long career without really naturally pursuing it is really astounding. It’s taken me a long time to accept what I do for a living and actually feel like I have anything of value to add to the equation.
Shirley Manson
I was raised in New York, so that’s the greatest city in the world to me, but if you take that out of the equation, then London is my favourite city, and I’m a huge fan of Dublin as well.
Michelle Visage
A mother cannot reasonably expect her grown-up children to boomerang back, gushing cosiness and make up for lost time. Absentee Mum, then Gran in overdrive is not an equation that balances.
Carol Thatcher
I wasn’t born with nerves. You have to take yourself out of the equation and think about everyone else – you’re the entertainer.
Gabby Barrett
I think a lot of people make a big misstep when they assume what an artist is going to be interested in, so I try to just take that out of the equation and make sure whenever I’m talking to people about their music, I’m getting all my context clues from that – and then we go to work.
Kenny Beats
Sometimes in T20, you need to bowl only one over, and once the captain has given you that one over, irrespective of whether it is good or bad, that one over is out of the equation. That actually helps you, that one over. By the time the batsman figures out what you are trying to do, you get rid of one over.
MS Dhoni
I’m not terribly science-y. I couldn’t tell you what’s the binomial equation or how many atoms in a mole.

Michael Chiesa
Nothing changes the gender equation more significantly than women’s economic freedom.
Gloria Steinem
I’m one of those artists that nobody ever sees coming. We started with Virgin in 1993. If you look at the climate of that time in reggae and you were to pick the top five people that’d have a shot at having mainstream success, I was nowhere in that equation at all.
At the end of the day if you want to entertain people, you’ve got to take your ego out of the equation.
Paul Feig
Here is what I know. When you’re running a successful company or an organization, you can take this human equation to the bank: underconfidence plus insecurity always equals paranoia and backstabbing.
Anthony Scaramucci
When you are repeating your co-star, it’s good to bring something new to the equation on screen.
Aditya Roy Kapur
My first year on ‘SNL’, I made $90,000 dollars. And I bought a red Corvette for $45,000 dollars. I’m thinking, ‘I’ve got 45 grand left!’ Taxes didn’t even come into my equation. At the end of the first year of making 90 grand I was 25, 30 in the hole. We live in this baller, spend-money culture.
Chris Rock
I want the world to understand that a Palestinian state means no Israeli state. That’s the equation.

Whitney Wolfe Herd
My chemistry with Salman goes long back, and we have a great equation. Doing a film with him is no less than a dream.

Matt Lauer
Half of the equation is men, and right now, unfortunately, men are running the majority of corporations, so we have to make sure that if that is the case, that they are respectful and honor women for their true accomplishments.
Gretchen Carlson
You’ve got to honor your relationship with your audience – that they sit down because they want to be entertained. And that doesn’t mean you can’t provoke them and antagonize them and challenge them in the course of the entertainment as long as you keep the entertainment part of the equation alive.
David E. Kelley
If we don’t think that men and boys are part of the solution in this battle for gender equality for the balance between who we are as humans, we’re undermining their minds and their spirits. They need to be part of the equation.

Philip Pullman
Whenever you exclude God and the value system that He represents out of the equation of a life, of a family, or a culture, you create a spiritual vacuum. Nature abhors a vacuum. It must be filled with something.
Tony Evans
It’s important to understand the compensation equation that a CEO and a founder has with his or her employees.
Chamath Palihapitiya
Every race I’ve been in, I calculated race into the equation. If you’re in America, you calculate it into the equation. It is a factor. I never make it an issue. I don’t run the campaign wearing it on my sleeve, but I don’t run away from it, either.
Harvey Gantt
As for my father, I developed a friendly equation with him once I grew up. He has seen ‘BTC’ and has loved it.
Ishaan Khatter

Michael Dell
Science is a differential equation. Religion is a boundary condition.
Alan Turing
Science is global. Einstein’s equation, E=mc2, has to reach everywhere. Science is a beautiful gift to humanity, we should not distort it. Science does not differentiate between multiple races.

There’s no doubt that scientific training helps many authors to write better science fiction. And yet, several of the very best were English majors who could not parse a differential equation to save their lives.
David Brin
In our family, the men have always stood at the head, true patriarchs that take the lead, teach, and live their lives as examples… Women have a significant role as helpers to our husbands and co-counsels in the parental equation.

Joel Edgerton
When you’re learning how to do magic, the first rule is ‘never reveal a secret.’ In a way, by telling someone I’m a magician, it kind of gives away the best secret of all… How interesting to take the magician out of the equation of a magic show.
Michael Carbonaro
The leading edge of the best science in the world is being driven by private money, and investment money because of the scarcity of government money to do this. It’s not only by far the best and most advanced science, we’re driving the equation at Human Longevity that everyone else is beginning to follow as well.
Craig Venter
Imagining what a character will do in a given situation – it’s like an equation, and working it out is a marathon rather than a sprint.

Andrew Breitbart
When I see somebody being mistreated, my eyes tear up and I want to stop it. And I believe that the best thing I can do is to write about it, because if I insert myself into the equation it doesn’t really do much good, but if I write about it I think it could do more good.
John Pomfret
Physics is nothing but the ABC’s. Nature is an equation with an unknown, a Hebrew word which is written only with consonants to which reason has to add the dots.

Tripti Dimri
A film is between you and the audience. The distributors are the only people in between us. It is a straight equation.
Mani Ratnam
The opponents and I are really one. My strength and skills only half of the equation. The other half is theirs. An opponent is someone whose strength joined to yours creates a certain result.
Sadaharu Oh
It must be admitted that science has its castes. The man whose chief apparatus is the differential equation looks down upon one who uses a galvanometer, and he in turn upon those who putter about with sticky and smelly things in test tubes.
Gilbert Newton Lewis
Svitolina moves a little bit better than Ostapenko but Ostapenko goes for it a little earlier in the rallies. The way she plays she can take you out of the equation.
Mats Wilander
The standard model of particle physics describes forces and particles very well, but when you throw gravity into the equation, it all falls apart. You have to fudge the figures to make it work.
Lisa Randall
We don’t sulk with everybody. We limit our sulks to a very particular person: the person who’s supposed to love us and understand us. And we make this equation that if you love me, you’re supposed to understand me even if I don’t explain what’s wrong.
Alain de Botton
I live for inspiring people to do things they think they can’t. My goal is to completely eliminate the word ‘can’t’ from the equation.

Very obviously, the electorate as a mass has not imbibed the philosophy of ‘think national, act local’ or even ‘think big and beyond’ – it is a case, more, of ‘think local, act local, and let the national equation take care of itself.’
N. Bhaskara Rao
Interestingly enough, I’m an earth sign, and my personality is pretty much in keeping with that, and Verdine is definitely a fire sign. And even though Ralph is a water sign, he would definitely be the wind side of the equation.
Philip Bailey
