Fairly Quotes

Here, we’ve compiled a list of the best Fairly Quotes from famous authors such as Nigel Short, Daniel Stern, Louise Leakey, Dennis Ritchie, John Grisham. Let’s look at these pieces of wisdom. We definitely have something to learn from them!

We have a large underclass in Britain, and a fairly low standard of education. Our best universities are extremely good, but a very significant proportion of the British population that comes out of compulsory schooling with very low standards of education.
Nigel Short
My life is fairly normal. I didn’t wake up one morning and find out that I’m suddenly a star, with people clamoring at me. I feel like I’m moving up the ladder just a little, which is fine.
Daniel Stern
What the fossil record does do is to force us to contemplate our place on the planet. We are but one species of several hominids that inhabited Planet Earth, and like our distant cousins who went extinct fairly recently, our time on Planet Earth is also finite.
Louise Leakey
My work was fairly theoretical. It was in recursive function theory. And in particular, hierarchies of functions in terms of computational complexity. I got involved in real computers and programming mainly by being – well, I was interested even as I came to graduate school.
Dennis Ritchie
More than 100 people have been sent to death row who were later exonerated because they weren’t guilty or fairly tried. Most criminal defendants do not get adequate representation because there are not enough public defenders to represent them. There is a lot that is wrong.
John Grisham
I had been very impressed with the voiceover of ‘Apocalypse Now,’ with Martin Sheen’s voice. That was a great voiceover; it really internalized the Martin Sheen character, who was essentially fairly low key and didn’t say a lot during the whole movie. But he thought a lot, so I always thought that was really great.
Ridley Scott
Advertising was fairly simple work, and I really just wanted a job where I could sit and write every day and not get fired for it like I had at other jobs, but it was fun.
John Hughes
You know, the Tea Party is a – first of all, it is a significant movement, and I think the media and some pundits have tried to write it off as a bunch of cranks or something. But, in fact, it’s really a very legitimate and fairly significant swath of voters out there.
Mark McKinnon
Records are meant to be broken and they should be broken, but fairly.
P. T. Usha
One of the biggest challenges you face as a female manager is getting a foot in the door to be interviewed fairly.
Emma Hayes
There is no one-size-fits-all process. It differs from character to character and priority to priority. Every project has a different priority, and you have to be agile enough physically as well as mentally to shift from one character to another. I think I am fairly decent in that.
Vikrant Massey
The partisan warfare fueled by modern technology does not fairly reflect the grace and dignity of the American people.
Rod Rosenstein
Besides Kannada, I also know Telugu and Tamil fairly well.
Nidhhi Agerwal
The class has become over the years fairly large, running to three hundred or more, but I always insist upon reading all the student folklore collections myself. Although this is a tall order, I look forward to it because I learn so much from it.
Alan Dundes
Rejection is a big part of show business. It can be tough on anyone who doesn’t have fairly good self-esteem. Especially kids, as they try to discover who they are.
Angela Cartwright
Many countries struggle and never get to the point where people have faith that laws are executed fairly.
Claire McCaskill
I actually profoundly think the world’s a better place when economics is fairly boring… The more boring the better.
Evan Davis
In my mind, there’s usually a fairly definitive kind of narrative when I write. But I don’t want to enforce that on other people. I think that’s why I like using metaphor so much.
Johnny Flynn
I think about and study people. I think I make people uneasy sometimes by being so curious as to why they do what they do. I find myself thinking about this fairly obsessively, and I can’t stop until I’ve found an answer.
Antonya Nelson
I’m fairly good at connecting with a lot of different people.
Joe Burrow
One of my earliest recollections is being woken up at some ungodly hour in the morning by my parents and sat in front of the fairly new black and white television, watching a grainy image of a man in a white suit climbing down a ladder. It was the first moon landing, and I became a sort of spaceman, as many kids were.
Charles Stross
The characters are the result of two things-first, we elaborate them into fairly well-defined people through their dialogue, then they happen all over again, when the actor interprets them.
Joel Coen
I’m so much more gratified by my life now that I have an expertise. I wake up every day thinking about a fairly small set of scientific questions all related to the psychology of achievement, and I’ll never get bored of those questions. That’s something I couldn’t say to you when I was 22 or 25 or probably even 31.
Angela Duckworth
I waited my whole life to be a woman, so now my clothes are fairly tight.
Jenny Slate
I’m good at fitting in, and I think I’m fairly perceptive about moods and psychic environments.

Ernie Harwell
Every person deserves to be treated fairly under the law.
Bill Foster
It’s pretty easy to learn about lighthouses because there’s a lot of lighthouse enthusiasts. Really, there’s lots of books about it, and it’s fairly easy to find lighthouse keepers’ journals and logbooks.
Robert Eggers
How many men are there who fairly earn a million dollars?
Henry George
Most of the research which is done is determined by the requirement that it shall, in a fairly obvious and predictable way, reinforce the approved or fashionable theories.
Celia Green
My guess is that good and bad parenting is spread fairly evenly across different social groups. But can you imagine Tony Blair lecturing the middle class on how to bring up their children? He is far more comfortable as a latter-day exponent of the Poor Law mentality.
Martin Jacques
I think you can fairly say I spawned or laid an egg that has turned into a lifestyle industry.
Martha Stewart
I do fairly represent Middle Eastern women.
Shohreh Aghdashloo
When one begins, as I did, to analyze men after a fairly long experience of analyzing women, one receives a most surprising impression of the intensity of this envy of pregnancy, childbirth, and motherhood, as well as of breasts and of the act of suckling.
Karen Horney
I never thought of myself as being a good songwriter. There are a ton of other people that are good songwriters, but I don’t think I’m in the club. What I do well is perform, sometimes sing pretty good, and accompany myself well and arrange fairly well.
Alex Chilton
Well, I think I’ve had a fairly meandering career.
Christina Ricci
Non-proliferation will only work if all states are willing to cooperate, and that will only happen if all feel they are being treated fairly.

Gene Luen Yang
I had this grand plan for writing the history of the United States in six volumes. This was in the mid-1990s; I was fairly young and very ambitious. I pitched it to a publisher, who just laughed at me.
H. W. Brands
I knew that I was a gay boy fairly early; what was interesting to me was that my mother didn’t know. She made me play baseball – I had no desire to do that. I said, ‘Mom, I don’t like direct sunlight, I don’t like bugs, I don’t like grass, and I’d rather be in the house playing with your fabric samples.’
Nate Berkus
There’s a lot of exaggerated talk about CAFTA, but it’s actually a fairly routine trade agreement. Although it involves fairly small nations, they’re still more important trade partners than places like Australia or many other larger nations.
Ernest Istook
After college, I went on a real big classics kick. Read everything by Faulkner, Hemingway, Woolf, Proust, Dostoevsky. And that classics train dropped me off at ‘Dracula.’ Halfway through it, I understood I’d never be going back, never ‘leaving’ the genre again. Since then, I’ve been on a fairly strict horror diet.
Josh Malerman
When I came through the ranks in wrestling – in high school and college – those systems have been in place for 100 years, and they’re fairly standard training across the board for all the colleges.
Ben Askren
I do have rituals. I’m a fairly superstitious person.
Justin Bartha
ISIS may seem un-Islamic to President Obama, but to anybody who has read Islam’s core texts, it might appear to be a fairly straightforward attempt to create a state based on Mohammed’s instructions as laid down in the Koran, in hadith, and in Mohammed’s own example.
Douglas Murray
I have a flexible body, thanks to the combination exercise routine I follow. But I’m fairly lazy when it comes to working out my legs and back.
Shriya Saran
Lamentably, alien audiences may be frustrated by the switch to digital television. That’s because the transmitter power for DTV is fairly evenly spread across the spectrum. The spikiness is gone, and from afar, the attention-grabbing squeals of analog television’s carriers have been replaced by DTV’s smooth, low hiss.
Seth Shostak
Whether you’re earning income because you have money sitting in the bank or a stock account somewhere, you should be taxed on that income fairly and the same.
Seth Moulton
We’ve been fairly eclectic in our time, and we did branch out. Whenever we got a little bit too far out, people started to moan and groan a bit.
Roger Taylor
When I was younger, I listened to the greats: Winters, Mel and Carl, Nichols and May, Pryor, Carlin, Klein, Berman and lots of Lenny Bruce albums. But once I started doing fairly well, I didn’t want to hear anybody’s jokes or premises.

Matt Walsh
The truth is that from birth on we are, to one extent or another, a fairly sensual species.
Jock Sturges
I was in my second year at NYU. I knew what I wanted to do, and I just walked out of college. So, from the age of 17, I’ve been able to do what I wanted, and that makes for a kind of contentment, a fairly pleasant demeanor.
Norman Lloyd
I can be fairly boring.
Jake Tapper

Jeb Bush
Thirty to 40 years ago, most financial decisions were fairly simple.
Scott Cook
I’m normally fairly busy rushing from job to job, so have little time in the mornings for my beauty regime. However, this usually means my hair and makeup is done for me when I get there, which is great!
Poppy Delevingne
There’s not democracy in the workplace. I mean, through most of our daily lives, the idea of democracy is fairly nonexistent. And I think things work better when the people who have to work with whatever it is we’re working with have a say in how it’s working.
Michael Moore
I feel fairly certain that my painting skills might not be best shown on ‘Dancing with the Stars.’ I’ll have to come up with another way to showcase that side of me.
Derek Hough
It is critical to bundle all future variable costs of supporting the customer in order to fairly estimate the future contribution.
Bill Gurley
It is fairly well-known what has been behind that climate change denial in America: vast sums pumped into an ignorance industry by the oil and gas lobbies.

Quite a lot of people wanted me to write about my family, I suppose for fairly obvious reasons, and there was always something that would stop me, I thought they were asking me for the wrong motives.

Dan Kaminsky
I’ve got a fairly low profile – I go and do me shopping when I need to!
Ciaran Hinds
I think my reputation among peers is probably different than my reputation among fans. My peers know me pretty well and so it’s fairly accurate. I think I’m respected among my peers.
Denny Hamlin
As a child, I heard many warnings from teachers about the perils of talking with strangers. Yet now, fairly late in my life, I can think of not many things better than to talk with strangers. The idea of being a stranger is also very appealing.
Michael Leunig
From a fairly young age, Donald had a really hard time reading social cues. You know, the rules in the house, my grandparents’ house were very different from the rules in school. So, he had a difficult time adjusting to that.
Mary L. Trump
I’m a fairly undisciplined writer.
Neil Gaiman
There is a child in every man, and that’s why larger-than-life stories which have a fairly tale component will work.
Mahesh Bhatt
As anyone who follows me on Twitter will know, I’m fairly robust in my views on there. I get next to nothing in the way of trolling. Most women I know who regularly come close to expressing an opinion get trolled constantly. This is a men-on-women issue. Guys are pretty much doing it to the girls.
John Niven
You see that the people who are drawn to alternative medicine are often fairly healthy and they go to alternative medicine for what I call the ‘symptoms of life.’ Fatigue, joint pains, inability to concentrate, perhaps, the kinds of things that anyone over twenty-five gets at some point.
Marcia Angell
Any successful nominee should possess both the temperament to interpret the law and the wisdom to do so fairly. The next Supreme Court Justice should have a record of protecting individual rights and a strong willingness to put aside any political agenda.
Bennie Thompson
If you take a regular animated film, that’s being done by animators on computers, so the filmmaking is a fairly technical process.
Peter Jackson

Maeve Binchy
My father was a civil servant, fairly sort of middle ranking, low to middle ranking. He worked almost entirely in what was then called Administrative Labour, dealing with employment and unemployment issues.
John Hume
I come by writing dialogue fairly naturally, I’ve got a chatty family; I’m a bit of a voyeur, and if I’m ever in a public place, I automatically find myself listening.
Patrick deWitt
It was just a fairly normal high school existence, riding our bikes around and hanging out in parks and down in the village.
Sherilyn Fenn
Every opinion must be suffered. One must listen to what may be rousing, annoying, even shocking, but it must be done honestly, fairly and with equanimity, respecting the rights of every Member of the Knesset and each faction, guarding the minority in the face of the predatory majority.
Reuven Rivlin
For a long time on Earth humans didn’t worship good gods; that’s a new idea. The ancient Greek gods, the Hindu gods, are fairly amoral, most of them. We get stuck when we insist that God be both good and all-powerful.
Barbara Ehrenreich
I’d like to be remembered for being a fairly pleasant person and for having gotten along for the most part with a lot of the people I’ve worked with. And for having a wonderful life and for having enjoyed practically every minute of it… I think I’m one of the luckiest people in the world.
Harry Morgan
For commercial books in a genre, readers’ and editors’ expectations may be fairly rigid. Some romance lines, for instance, issue fairly detailed writers’ guidelines explaining exactly what must happen in a book they publish (and what must not).
Nancy Kress
I remember being chronically shy. I came out of my shell a bit when I went to university, but I’m still fairly shy in company.
Ardal O’Hanlon
People have always said – those words, ‘too conservative,’ is fairly relative. I’m sure that they probably said that about Thomas Jefferson and George Washington and Benjamin Franklin.
Sharron Angle
I’m not a particularly shiny, happy person. I’m fairly cynical, and that’s what draws me to comedy.
Elizabeth Banks
In the business world, I did fairly well, but wasn’t happy. A bout of sciatica put me flat on my back. All I could do was read, listen to my mother’s stories about the Sandovals, and daydream: a return to self. My writing career had begun.
Sandra Cisneros
We need to use all the resources at our disposal in order to prosper. We need more employment, and we need employment to be spread more fairly across society.
David Blunkett
I’m a fairly neurotic person.
Max Joseph
My very first products were hand-made, one-of-a-kind pins. When I finally realized I could repeat a phrase to make multiples, ‘intellectuals gone bad,’ a fairly succinct description of my own life, seemed appropriate.
Anne Taintor
I got into underground comics fairly early on and kind of wandered away from the superhero stuff, but I was an art student and I was drawing a lot as a kid.
Jonathan Lethem
I want the UK to be a global leader in developing and deploying technology, but I also want us to ensure that the benefits are fairly shared across society.
Jo Swinson
One strategy for getting ahead is being incredibly good at a particular skill; you need to be world-class to stand out for that skill. In my case, I layered fairly average skills together until the combination became special.
Scott Adams
For me, writing has always come out of living a fairly to-the-bone kind of life, just really being present to a lot of life. The writing has been really a byproduct of that.
Alice Walker
I’m definitely a sushi person. I know I can eat a lot and still be fairly healthy.
Holly Marie Combs
I’ve always had an affinity for the fashion industry – I’ve always been drawn to it. But I grew up in Calgary in Canada, which, being a fairly isolated city, is not particularly known for having anything to do with fashion.
Imran Amed
What could an unsanctified man do in Heaven, if by any chance he got there? Let that question be fairly looked in the face and fairly answered. No man can possibly be happy in a place where he is not in his element and where all around him is not congenial to his tastes, habits and character.
J. C. Ryle
I read a lot of G.K. Chesterton. It was a fairly conventional intellectual path to the Catholic church, I would say.
Ross Douthat
Do things fairly, especially with your children. Girls deserve equal opportunities, especially in getting educated as well as equal sharing in business.
Andrew Gotianun
Many people don’t even want to start something until they feel fairly confident that they will be a success at it. But me? I love to throw myself into things headfirst and fail all over the place.
Kameron Hurley
Mum asks why I am so often cast in adulterous roles. I think it must be because I am fairly flirty.
Orla Brady
Picking up new languages is fairly easy since it’s my passion.

Kate Smith
I have a fairly pragmatic view on all those bullies that came before, because everybody makes you who you are now.
Thomas Middleditch
I’m a fairly upbeat and happy guy, you know? I don’t like people that feel sorry for themselves, and I traditionally stay away from people like that.
Josh Homme
Yeah, two or three weeks ago I was fairly snappy. I’ve never been injured before and this year it feels like I’ve hardly played.
Lee Westwood
Unfortunately, I think we could see that fairly early in 2015: The cloud of economic weakness in Russia is spreading over Europe. It has the potential of spreading into contagion into other emerging markets, particularly those with large energy companies, such as Petrobras in Brazil.
Charles Dallara
The guillotine was most effective and used until fairly recently.
Herbert Lom
I think I’m fairly demanding, probably. You have to feel that when you’re appointed to a job you have to do the job.
Jean Kennedy Smith
Reporters have an obligation to report accurately and fairly on all issues they cover, especially ones as important as energy and the environment.
Michael Shellenberger
Life’s fairly excruciating. Painful things happen. Every now and then, you drag yourself out of the stream and stand on the bank gasping for air. I think that’s how I work.
Helen Garner
People generally have sex fairly young, and probably younger than they should be having it.

There is an infinite difference between a little wrong and just right, between fairly good and the best, between mediocrity and superiority.
Orison Swett Marden
Words are important to me, but a song can work and function and be a good song with words that are fairly standard. But really great lyrics can’t rescue a dog of a song.
Jarvis Cocker
I was once a fairly angry person.
Scott Rudin
The Northwest, to make a generalization, is a fairly sensitive populace. Slightly self-conscious and very self-reflexive.
Carrie Brownstein
That was in the days when everyone rode a bicycle, and the journal had a circulation of over one hundred and twenty-five thousand weekly, so my verses and illustrations became known to a fairly large public.
Joseph C. Lincoln
As a graduate student I studied mathematics fairly broadly, and I was fortunate enough, besides developing the idea which led to ‘Non-Cooperative Games,’ also to make a nice discovery relating to manifolds and real algebraic varieties.
John Forbes Nash, Jr.
Mission Ignition’ was really brilliant. Each show was made in a day. It wasnt staged, we made each show in a day, and it was fairly intense.
Dario Franchitti
I’d always been fairly sporty. At school I got involved in everything: netball, hockey, cross-country, athletics and I competed in the north east championships. I did a lot of gymnastics when I was younger and then got into my dancing.
Vick Hope
I was much more interested in the orchestra than the piano, but I did become fairly proficient as a pianist and my teachers felt I had talent and wanted me to become a good concert pianist and earn my living that way.
Alan Hovhaness
Besides, I think that when one has been through a boarding school, especially then, you have some resistance, because it was both fine comradeship and a fairly hard training.
Arne Jacobsen
I never doubted that if I applied myself and tried to learn that I would good at it. I’ve had a lot of lucky turns, no doubt. But it’s actually been a fairly direct line from control-freak, cartoon-obsessed kindergartner to control-freak, cartoon-obsessed executive producer.
Alex Hirsch
It certainly was unusual growing up with two fairly well-known pastors as my parents.
Daniel Mallory Ortberg
What I do is I write mainly about very personal and rather lonely feelings, and I explore them in a different way each time. You know, what I do is not terribly intellectual. I’m a pop singer for Christ’s sake. As a person, I’m fairly uncomplicated.
David Bowie
I like meeting people from other walks of life and finding out about other worlds, and knowing that I’m fairly adept at one world and really stupid in many others.
Ann Reinking
Tommy Wirkola is Norwegian but has a Finnish surname – he comes from the one of the northernmost countries in the whole of Europe. It was easy working with him. The people in the north are all fairly similar.
Pihla Viitala
I grew up in Le Mars, Iowa, and even though it’s a great place to grow up and be raised as a kid, there wasn’t a lot to do. It was fairly boring, and I think the way I either escaped the boredom or found a way to keep myself occupied was through movies and TV shows.
Paul Rust
No one knew I was gay growing up but I was bullied. I was a cheerleader, fairly popular and considered straight.
Cat Cora
I simply apply the law fairly and equally to all our citizens.
Luther Strange
Along with loving the script, the reason I did ‘Aeon Flux’ was because I needed the job, and I couldn’t find $5 million to make a movie independently – after making a fairly successful movie for a million dollars.
Karyn Kusama
The thing about being a university teacher is that you’re fairly tolerant about young people saying things they shouldn’t have said.
Mary Beard
I’m a fairly tormented artist, and I’m less willing to indulge myself in self-pity, outside of songwriting.
Dave Matthews
Part of why daycare is so poorly paid is because the sense that they’re prisoners of love, that daycare workers love their work so much that they don’t need to be paid fairly. It’s this sense of, ‘Oh well, labor and love are two different things.’
Alissa Quart
Masculinity comes from your look, all the way down to your attitude. It’s a big part of being a tennis player. Even though tennis is a fairly friendly sport, intimidation is still a big part of it.
Milos Raonic
I love flying; I love aircraft, and you could say I’ve had a love affair with flight since I was a child. I travel a huge amount. I use airports, and as a pilot, I’ve flown in and out of airports thousands of times, so really, I have a fairly broad perspective.
Norman Foster
‘Staunch conservatives’ and ‘free marketeers’ are fairly typical Republicans, while the ‘American preservationists’ are far less reliably a part of a GOP coalition.
Kristen Soltis Anderson
I live a fairly simple life, and that didn’t change much after I sold TechCrunch in 2010. I didn’t buy a new house or even a new car. The one thing I did splurge on was a boat. Nothing too fancy or large.
Michael Arrington
I’m a fairly ascetic person. And I do most of my writing at night. You don’t get distracted, your brain goes into what you are writing about, into the world you’re writing about, rather than into the world you’re in.
Caleb Carr
We have required under law for years that men and women get paid equal money for equal work. But we’ve faced challenges enforcing that law. There is still a large wage gap, and there are numerous instances of women holding jobs where they are not compensated fairly.
Lois Frankel
Life was very simple. My parents had come from the North of England, which is a fairly rugged, bleak, hard-working part of England, and so there was not the expectation of luxury.
Roger Bannister
Japan’s experience suggests the importance of assessing the sustainability of price stability over a fairly long period, which many central banks have emphasized in recent years.
Toshihiko Fukui
My way of coping with the day to day news cycle, which can be a lot, following every undulation of the news, I think it’s really psychologically harmful, so I check in, but I check in on a slower cycle. That’s my way of controlling my emotional response to fairly dark times.
Morgan Spector
I suppose that I’m fairly comfortable with the clown hat on.
Nick Rhodes
Last summer when we were preparing for the movie, I actually kind of wanted to stay fairly uninformed about it. As we went through the process that we do in the movie, I wanted to be a little wide-eyed.
Thomas Haden Church
India has the capability to create a fairly extensive defence manufacturing capability in many areas, and as a country and as an industry, we have matured in terms of technology and capability to make this happen.
Baba Kalyani
I do come from fairly humble beginnings.
Tony Bates
Our government workers should be treated fairly and appropriately. They should have a decent retirement, but not a gold-plated system where they can retire multimillionaires in their 50s.
Bruce Rauner
I was always someone who wanted to write. I was a real shy, bookworm-ish kid, and I think my earliest stuff was fairly dark.
Gillian Flynn
In America, we divide federal power between the legislative, executive and judicial branches so that no one holds too much power. This is sixth-grade civics: Congress writes the laws; the president executes the laws; and the courts apply those laws fairly and dispassionately to cases.
Ben Sasse
I believe in a progressive tax structure that fairly distributes the costs of government in a way that those of us fortunate to have more, carry more of the burden.
Brad Schneider
Alabama farmers want a chance to complete fairly in Japan, but they can’t if the Japanese won’t let us in.
Mike Rogers
People think that if you look fairly reasonable, you can’t possibly act, and as I only care about acting, I think beauty can be a great handicap.
Vivien Leigh
We are patriotic enough to believe there is no good reason why foreign investors from Europe cannot be expected to resolve any disputes fairly through British justice, operating through British courts. And we are European enough to think that our companies can do the same by relying on European courts.
Barry Gardiner
I don’t feel comfortable with luxury, and I try to stay fairly normal.
Vince Cable
If there were an exact and universal scale of punishments and crimes, we would have a fairly reliable and shared instrument to measure the degree of tyranny and liberty, of the basic humanity or malice of the different nations.
Cesare Beccaria
But by showing us live coverage of every bad thing happening everywhere in the world, cable news makes life seem like it’s just an endless string of disasters – when, for most people in most places today, life is fairly good.
Gregg Easterbrook
I went to a fairly normal, middle-of-the-road public school in a suburb of New Orleans, but it gave me huge opportunities.
Sal Khan
Food is a fairly significant aspect of my life. I have struggled mightily with food. With my weight. And I’m conscious of it. So I have a sensitivity to people who struggle with their weight.
Tom Vilsack
We’re grappling with the same issue facing all advanced economies – how to revive growth and distribute its fruits more fairly. An America that can tackle that problem head-on can perhaps help revive a stagnant global economy.
David Ignatius
I play fairly aggressively week to week and fire at a lot of pins. So I might miss more greens than other pros, but I’m still only a few yards from the hole when I do. That being said, when I really need to hit a green in regulation, I’m confident in my swing.
Brooks Koepka
We humans are a fairly barbarous bunch.
Neil LaBute
In Bollywood, once an actor becomes a fairly established name, he or she usually starts taking things for granted.

I think it’s fairly clear that playing hockey isn’t the same as playing football.
Gary Bettman
I date fairly often, but my work is much more important.
Dave Clark
Hopefully, people will look at our stance on privacy in general and know that we’re not trying to operate outside of a fairly distinct line that we’re drawing. I hope that people trust us to do the right thing there.
Tim Cook
I gave up meat when I was 18, and it was an ethical decision. I loved the taste, and went on holiday to Greece, fairly gorging myself on lamb souvlaki before taking the plunge into a meatless existence.
Alice Roberts
I lived a fairly average, anonymous small-town life till I got the idea to do Nine Inch Nails. Then I locked myself in a studio for a year, and then got off the tour bus two years after that, and I didn’t know who I’d turned into.
Trent Reznor
I quite like the Queen. Now, this must come as a fairly amazing statement for someone who is avowedly left wing, pro-independence and anti-monarchy, but there you go.
John Niven
I remain, however, fairly optimistic for the future of period drama because it’s just such a popular thing.
Andrew Davies
I play football once or twice a week. I eat pretty healthy. I’m in fairly good shape most of the time.
James McAvoy
My favorite literature to read is fairly dry history. I like the framework, and my imagination can do the rest.
Andrew Bird
By nature, I really am a fairly bouncy and sunny individual.
Julie Andrews
You know, I’m fairly intelligent, but I don’t think my grades reflected that.
Barry Sanders
The power to arrest – to deprive a citizen of liberty – must be used fairly, responsibly, and without bias.
Loretta Lynch
I’ve always been fairly reserved and laid-back.
David James Elliott
Nature is not evil. The world occasionally shrugs its shoulders, and people get knocked off. The earth, for geological reasons that are well known, is a fairly risky place to live. To be evil, you have to have intent. Any remarkable natural happening in which no human will is employed cannot be regarded as evil.
Simon Winchester
I’m fairly practiced at squirreling out stories and sources – I talk to people; I ask people if they know anyone worth talking to.
Clare Rewcastle Brown
I’m fairly skeptical of movements, organizations, and institutions in general.
Jeff Vandermeer
I am still fairly confident we will come out better than the West in terms of our overall development versus damage.
Piyush Goyal
I’m fairly in control and I don’t like to flirt particularly. I mean, obviously if I meet someone who I think is hot, of course I’ll want to flirt with him, But in general I don’t use it in day-to-day life.
Shirley Manson
Despite my involvement in difficult and sometimes controversial questions I have received consistent support from the people of Ashfield. They have recognised that it is necessary to take difficult decisions, that newspapers do not always report fairly or accurately.
Geoff Hoon
I’ve really thought a lot about why other companies fail or succeed. I had to be a student of failure and find out why things went off the rails. I did that at a fairly deep level, and it’s still something I do.
Edwin Catmull
‘The Ides of March’ was a fairly cynical film.
Grant Heslov
At the Centers for Disease Control, I rose up fairly quickly into management positions. The first team I led there included many people who had been my supervisors in previous roles or were more senior than I was. So it was kind of a daunting challenge.
Helene D. Gayle
Or he can work it out as a metrical and formal exercise, but he will be disappointed in its content. The New Year’s prospect fairly chills his daunting breast.
John Crowe Ransom
I am fairly convinced that people plan destination weddings because they would actually like to elope but want to have given you the option to attend.
Emily V. Gordon
We must remember that democracy works when given time to develop, mature and deliver. People must have access to information for informed debate. Government institutions must treat citizens fairly, and with dignity, while responding to their needs.
Atifete Jahjaga
Practice, training camps to me are fairly easy.
Charles Woodson
I try to keep my life fairly simple. Being humble is really important.
Timothy Weah
Some day, someone will do something wrong and there will be a scandal to report in the paper. When that happens, we will address it honestly and openly and try to deal with it as quickly and as fairly as we can, and keep moving the city forward.
John Hickenlooper
The Apollo programme of the 1960s had some weight problems, too; in particular, the lunar lander needed some fairly drastic weight-reduction work.
Henry Spencer
Win or lose, do it fairly.
Knute Rockne
There was never anything else I wanted to pursue. It was always theater, and movies are a fairly new thing.
Ben Platt
I consider myself a fairly ethical individual while I do have a lot of dichotomies within me. We’re all victims of our own hypocrisy at times.
T. J. Miller
Iranians hate Arabs. They’re a fairly well-educated population and they have centuries of experience with self-government.
Michael Ledeen
But we do have a golf course near by and I play fairly regularly.
Perry Como
I think that horror, in general, is fairly popular. It’s definitely popular in film. There’s just not a lot of good horror on TV, so whenever there is good horror on TV, people rush to it.
Oren Peli
I’m fairly in tune with what’s private with my husband and with me.
Star Jones
My background was fairly conservative, and I think there’s a strong notion of duty in a background like that, and I don’t think that’s always helpful.
Damian Lewis
When you’re bringing in a fairly unknown candidate challenging a sitting president, the population needs a lot more information than reduced coverage provides.
Walter Cronkite
I’m a fairly ordinary person – a lifelong reader, a former software engineer, and former math teacher. I come from a wonderful family of teachers, musicians, librarians, and engineers. I think I surprised them as well as my friends and coworkers when I took up writing as a hobby and let it take over my life!
Carol Berg
I’m a fairly private person.
Ben Whishaw
The notion of getting under the hood and explaining how something works, that’s fairly familiar territory to me.
Scott McCloud
When I look back and think about it, I feel my career was fairly good but, certainly, not tremendous.
Some people feel that because you are black you will never be treated fairly, and that you should voice your opinions, be militant about them. I don’t feel this way. You can’t convince a fool against his will.
Ernie Banks
The thing they don’t tell you about a Tough Mudder is that, for all the adrenaline pumping and barbed-wire-bicep-tattoo sporting, a lot of the day is fairly idyllic and contemplative. I hadn’t spent so much time jogging through the woods in years – or ever.
Josh Gondelman
I’m not over the top; I’m not wacky. I’m fairly understated, and that reflects in the way I sing.
Sade Adu
The economy, unemployment, the future… Politicians, economists, and journalists are constantly debating these key issues for our country but rarely come to an answer. But behind all this, there is a fairly simple truth: no matter what anybody says, jobs are hard to come by.
Jameela Jamil
I must have read every issue of ‘Punch’ published in the 20th century, and I think in the process I picked up the true voice of English humour – that amiable, fairly liberal, laconic voice which you find in something like ‘Three Men in a Boat.’
Terry Pratchett
I am fairly rich. Money’s very handy, let’s face it.
Bob Hoskins
There’s different aspects of the game you have got to pick up along the way. I think I am picking it up fairly quickly and I’m learning all the time and I can only get better.
Phil Jones
I was in a band in high school and college and I always had a love for music, but I didn’t go to a conservatory or anything like that. I was fairly self-taught.
Tim Heidecker
When I listen to and play the songs from ‘Narrow Stairs’ now, that record feels like a record where we had established a style that arguably was more our own than it was in the beginning. Going into that record, I felt a lot more confident in my songwriting. It was a fairly prolific time for me.
Ben Gibbard
‘Roots’ was a massive responsibility because it is this foundational text in the States and it also resonates fairly strongly with pretty much any black community globally.
Rege-Jean Page
It’s good, sound business to treat all the teachers fairly, and I think it’s a good story to tell.
Thom Tillis
While the DOJ and the SEC must be vigilant in investigating and prosecuting white-collar misconduct, we must also ensure that we are acting fairly and prudently.
William Barr
A lot of our assumptions of the world are fairly cynical, fairly negative, and assume the worst. What our reading tastes show – in this rush to fantasy, romance, whatever – is that we actually still want to believe in a world of possibility, in a world of mystery.
Deborah Harkness
I count myself a a rationalist and a skeptic with a very conscious awareness of my indebtedness to Western Christian civilization, and I am a fairly passionate defender of it.
John Rhys-Davies
I have a website because it’s an interesting tool, very – and quite unexpectedly – useful for my work. It’s become an archive and a fairly complete on-line portfolio, as well as offering an opportunity to write a little.
John Howe
The game business arose from computer programs that were written by and for young men in the late 1960s and early 1970s. They worked so well that they formed a very lucrative industry fairly quickly. But what worked for that demographic absolutely did not work for most girls and women.
Brenda Laurel
A number of countries around the world, and indeed the E.U. as a whole, have chosen not to allow the import from the U.S. of beef from cows fed a diet that includes the hormone ractopamine, because of the fairly grave health concerns.
Zac Goldsmith
When you feel that the way you interpret the world is fairly idiosyncratic, you can feel somewhat ostracized and lonely.
Jonathan Ive
It was a fairly happy childhood. My father was working away, and my mum brought up five kids all on her own.
Andy Serkis
To me, as I see it, reparations would be something that is fairly specific to the descendants of slaves, and it would also be an official apology from the United States government for slavery.
Julian Castro
It’s a fairly recent thing but I’ve become very fond of making drinks myself.
Utada Hikaru
As a public figure, you deserve to be treated fairly.
Matt Harvey
Since we try and take a fairly buy-and-hold approach to our newsletter portfolios and don’t sell at every whipsaw, we want to have a mix of stocks that will perform at both ends of the oscillation.
Louis Navellier
I was a sickly child, and it wasn’t until I was 19 that I realised I was quite a robust, vigorous person. Since then I’ve taken ill health to be an irritating interruption into what is a fairly reliable stream of good health.
Monty Don
I am fairly classless because it is very difficult to class someone who comes from a mixed marriage.
Sade Adu
I like cartoons. I like ‘Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends.’ It’s funny! It has things that kids wouldn’t get. It’s like, if you’re mature, you get it. I like that and ‘The Fairly OddParents.’
David Archuleta
It’s fairly common knowledge that a startup can’t execute on two products simultaneously.
Michael Seibel
The keystone to justice is the belief that the legal system treats all fairly.
Janet Reno
Our mission, as set forth by the Congress is a critical one: to preserve price stability, to foster maximum sustainable growth in output and employment, and to promote a stable and efficient financial system that serves all Americans well and fairly.
Ben Bernanke
When I want to do something badly enough, I do it, but there is a practical side of me that thinks I should be paid fairly.
Elaine Stritch
I’m fairly adventurous with my eating. I’ve tried kangaroo, and Moreton Bay bugs, which are a kind of lobster, are so good.
Brian O’Driscoll
Yeah, I played with LEGOs. We had LEGOs, Lincoln Logs, and Playmobil, and they all occupied the same space. I guess that’s fairly common. I’m saying this as if it’s a bizarre phenomenon that we had a toy chest.
Zach Woods
The right to strike is one of the most important safeguards working people have in this country. It’s a weapon of last resort that has served throughout history as a bargaining tool which allows unions to push for recognition of ordinary workers’ rights to be paid fairly and treated with dignity.
Emily Thornberry
I’m not that lazy, but I don’t need that much money. I lead a fairly simple life.
Karl Pilkington
Despite widely differing perspectives and agendas, there seems to be a remarkable global consensus that has built up over a fairly short period of time that climate change and ecology is one of the truly defining issues for humanity.
Azim Premji
I was a big party guy in my twenties, and kind of a playboy as well. I adopted a lot of values and goals that were fairly superficial and, in many cases, self-destructive. They looked cool and sounded sexy on the surface, but underneath, there was no real meaning going on, just a lot of escapism.
Mark Manson
I learnt fairly quickly that that was what I wanted to be – a guitarist – because it was the first thing I ever done in my life that really felt like it was something that I belonged to. I don’t know… from the moment I picked it up it felt right.
Gary Moore
I live in the country, and I live a fairly natural, holistic life. Sometimes I get put up in hotels where they use chemical sprays to clean things, or there are chemicals used that I stay away from.
Melissa Leo
Every once in a while an issue comes up where I have to make a statement. I can’t totally avoid all political issues, but I try my best to minimize them. When I do make a statement, I try to be fairly neutral.
Linus Torvalds
Mathematicians are fairly cheap.
Terence Tao
No one felt it more than the President. I saw him repeatedly, and he fairly groaned at the inexplicable delay in the advent of help from the loyal States.
Henry Villard
Using these unnamed sources, if done properly, carefully and fairly, provides more accountability in government.
Bob Woodward
I got fairly good grades, but I was bad at woodwork. They said I tried hard, but the result was hopeless.
Jonathan Stroud
I like to write in fairly everyday language – I’ve always tried to write lyrics that, if people would speak the words, it wouldn’t sound like a song.
Tim Rice
Science is bound, by the everlasting vow of honour, to face fearlessly every problem which can be fairly presented to it.
Lord Kelvin
Fairly or not, Western consumers associate Chinese products primarily with ‘low price.’
Nirmalya Kumar
I’m a storyteller, and I was an actor, so I have a fairly thin grip on reality to begin with.
Taylor Sheridan
Like most conservatives, my path was a bit meandering. I grew up around people who mostly held conservative or libertarian views. The liberals I knew were fairly quiet about it, or at least I don’t remember it being very heavy-handed.
Dana Perino
It’s fairly common to get something optioned but really rare to actually see it become a movie.
Jenny Han
Our core values and business ethics will always be paramount in all that we do, and we are always looking to do the right thing and settle claims fairly and accurately.
Tricia Griffith
We used to speak familiarly of an agent, now do more, who was accustomed to manufacture evidence, and to invent facts in his cases, or at least to alter the aspects of facts to such an extent that they might fairly be viewed as new.
George Combe
I think one of the major misconceptions about me is that I live my life the way people think I lead my life, with hot and cold drinks running everywhere and a party all the time. They think of my life in terms of certain excesses that don’t really exist. Things are actually fairly simple.
George Clooney
It’s quite hard to faze me. I’m fairly un-shockable.
Emily Blunt
Catwoman isn’t a ‘joiner.’ She’s a solo operator. She isn’t naturally heroic; she’s fairly selfish.
Ann Nocenti
I belong to a family where I think we’re all fairly treated, boys or girls. Although I have to work doubly hard just to be able to be recognised. That meant long hours, but the hard work paid off.
Teresita Sy-Coson
New York is about as cosmopolitan as it gets. It’s a fairly mixed and woke town, so there weren’t a lot of situations growing up where I felt like the outsider or the alien.
Jordan Peele
In my fairly disorganized life, yellow stickies are too easily lost, and as for software, I try to avoid using my computer as much more than a typewriter and a post office. I rely on my lifelong habit of daydreaming to spin my stories.
Julia Glass
An Englishman will fairly drink as much As will maintain two families of Dutch.
Daniel Defoe
Our government works should be treated fairly and appropriately; they should have a decent retirement, but not a gold-plated system where they can retire multimillionaires in their 50s.
Bruce Rauner
I always thought I was a fairly meek individual.
Jamey Sheridan
There’s a certain logic to systems, and that logic is fairly self-evident. It’s very straightforward, usually. It might take a little research, it might take a little bit of industry to prize it out, but it’s there to be seen.
Michael Nesmith
I’m pretty low-key. I travel fairly light, especially on the tour.
Christine McVie
To even be considered for an MVP award is fairly awesome for me.
Jose Altuve
An actor’s life is fairly lonely.
Melissa Leo
Whether if soul did not exist time would exist or not, is a question that may fairly be asked; for if there cannot be someone to count there cannot be anything that can be counted, so that evidently there cannot be number; for number is either what has been, or what can be, counted.
I was one of the more talented ones at the design firm I joined, so I conducted my work pretty shrewdly. Except I wasn’t a morning person, so I was quite frequently late for work. On top of that, it was a fairly big company, they were fussy about the dress code, and I got chewed out quite often.
Akira Toriyama
I was born and raised in a small town in Maine, Waterville. I enjoyed living there – still do – and my goal in life was a fairly specific and focused one of practicing law in Maine.
George J. Mitchell
My journalist sensibilities have guided me toward the types of projects I’ve gone for, even though the projects have been fairly diverse. It always has to have that interesting to attract me, I think.
Rhianna Pratchett
If you just take me as a fiction writer, then you’re probably going to find me fairly limited.
Geoff Dyer
I like a hem below my knee even though I was blessed with fairly good gams.
Lynda Resnick
The Punjabi film industry is fairly new and needs all the support it can get.
Wamiqa Gabbi
Common sense is the most fairly distributed thing in the world, for each one thinks he is so well-endowed with it that even those who are hardest to satisfy in all other matters are not in the habit of desiring more of it than they already have.
Rene Descartes
I got into performing fairly young and went from, like, a shy kid to a total weirdo.
Thomas Middleditch
I’m a short, fairly plain person who’s bluffing his case and getting away with it.
James Blunt
If you look at films like the Rankin/Bass specials, those sorts of things, there’s nothing inherently creepy about any of those, in fact those are fairly warm.
Travis Knight
I tentatively believe in a god. I was brought up in a fairly religious home. I think the world is compatible with reincarnation, karma, all that stuff.
Bjorn Lomborg
The third group is focused on counterintelligence and security. I think the reason for that is fairly evident, in terms of vulnerabilities of the department and the harm that can come to it by failing to detect when we have, in fact, been harmed.
Stephen Cambone
I got a cool car but I live fairly regular.
I think of myself as being quite affable, approachable, fairly easy to get to know.
Louis Theroux
When I entered my first newsroom in the late 80s it was packed with young people, a fairly balanced ratio of men and women, working as fixers, sub-editors, presenters and producers. Everyone was committed to the job, and equally ambitious.
Mary Nightingale
Nothing is more fairly distributed than common sense: no one thinks he needs more of it than he already has.
Rene Descartes
There is not much we can say with absolute confidence about the early church, but we can be fairly sure that the first Christians would not have dreamed of making a likeness of Jesus.
Neil MacGregor
Genius is an overused word. The world has known only about a half dozen geniuses. I got only fairly near.
Fritz Kreisler
My favorite way to cook trout is whole, bone-in, on the grill. The fish are stuffed with sliced lemons and herb sprigs, brushed with oil, and cooked over fairly hot coals until the skin is crisp and the flesh is moist and flaky. Go ahead and gild the lily by adding a sauce.
Tom Douglas
I elect to stay on the soil of which I was born and on the plot of ground which I have fairly bought and honestly paid for. Don’t advise me to leave, and don’t add insult to injury by telling me it’s for my own good; of that I am to be the judge.
Robert Purvis
I have a fairly normal domestic life.
Peter Capaldi
Preventing staff from having too much influence and decision-making power is fairly easy. Appropriate procedural safeguards can be installed to prevent staff from, among other things, self-dealing, making decisions in an isolated manner, or committing funds without oversight.
Michael O’Rielly
I know what it’s like to be in one place and dream of another. I also know what it’s like to feel that nostalgia is a fairly useless thing because it is stasis.
Mira Nair
I was fairly rubbish as a player.
Graham Potter
It’s always nice to have people love you, but I’d just like to be judged fairly.
David Cassidy
My on-set, keep-warm jacket is a Patagonia, and they make sure the people who make their clothes are paid fairly, along with a load of other great stuff and initiatives. They’re a business, but they put their money where their mouth is in terms of caring and responsibility.
Aisling Bea
In general, the PC’s always had a fairly decent tie to GDP.
Brian Krzanich
I am a very loyal person and believe that people should be treated fairly in life.
Deborah Meaden
On several occasions, I’ve felt like my career has wound up. I was sad and upset; my roles were snipped, and I wasn’t treated fairly.
Richa Chadha
I’m fairly competant as a director and actor, but I am Mr. Neurotic as a writer. I just don’t have enough confidence in my abilities to take criticism well. I take it personally. Start with ‘It’s a masterpiece,’ and then tell me what you think could be changed.
Tim Robbins
You have an audience that is fairly well grounded in the real world. You serve them and yourself best by making everything as real as possible.
Tamora Pierce
English writing tends to fall into two categories – the big, baggy epic novel or the fairly controlled, tidy novel. For a long time, I was a fan of the big, baggy novel, but there’s definitely an advantage to having a little bit more control.
Zadie Smith
I define myself first and foremost as I’ve had a fairly successful career.
Diana Taylor
I never abandoned either forms or freedom. I imagine that most of what could be called free verse is in my first book. I got through that fairly early.
Howard Nemerov
I often wonder if my being a fairly small Asian woman with a high-pitched quietish voice plays a role in how often men feel entitled to come up to me and tell me, ‘You have this doll act,’ or whatever.
Jenny Zhang
I don’t think we can go back to the old days. But I think that what the government needs to do is it needs to make sure that the pricing is fair, that you don’t have monopolies out there, so that people don’t have a chance to compete fairly.
Dan Glickman
In every single place I have campaigned in and every single place I have lived, people want some fairly basic things. They want to believe that they are safe, they want to know that their children will be educated and that if they are ill, they will be made better.
Jess Phillips
I lost my parents when I was fairly young.
Craig T. Nelson
I’m always a player who has taken fairly rough treatment, to be honest. I think my time in Scotland typified that because I think there was one game where I set a record for being fouled ten or 11 times in a game.
James Maddison
Hulk Hogan and I put 43,000 people in the Georgia Dome with three days’ notice. I’ve got a fairly big following in Atlanta.
Bill Goldberg
Authors will make far more on those ebooks through direct sales than publishers are offering. There is no incentive for authors to sell those rights to traditional publishers which means, in the fairly short term, publishers run out of material to sell.
Michael A. Stackpole
I think I’m fairly laid-back. I like to have fun and kind of just be happy.
Jared Goff
The facts fairly and honestly presented; truth will take care of itself.
William Allen White
I’m not the quickest guy in the world, so I figured if I beat a guy off the dribble, I kind of want to get my space and get my shot up fairly quick – not rush my shot or anything, but just get to my spot where I can make it and they have no chance of contesting it.
Brook Lopez
People tell me all the time that I look forbidding or aloof. That doesn’t bother me much – I am fairly private, withdrawn, and… distant, I guess. But, um, I think that’s okay.
Ric Ocasek
Throughout high school, I was fairly boring. I didn’t do many rebellious things.
Erin Moriarty
Sometimes it’s a bizarre, fairly cold, and horrifying thing to be a parent.
Lena Headey
Children from like 8 and even up to the college age – Spider-Man appeals to a fairly broad demographic but, like I said, a mean age probably of 12 is a good mark – they process information so quickly and it’s not because of attention deficit or short attention span.
Thomas Haden Church
As soon as I found out that Hull City were interested I really wanted to make the move, so thankfully everything got done fairly quickly.
Harry Wilson
Back in the day with Ronnie Coleman, there’s a fairly famous photo with me doing the bicep pose with him. I also did a pose with Arnold at the Arnold Classic one year in Columbus, Ohio.
Scott Steiner
If we do discover more than one type of life on Earth, we can be fairly certain that the universe is teeming with it, for it would be inconceivable that life started twice here but never on all the other earth-like planets.
Paul Davies
I had never attended high school, but I was fairly well read.
Frank McCourt
People at Facebook are fairly used to the press being nice to us or not nice to us.
Mark Zuckerberg
I’ve directed enough in the theatre and a couple of films to know that – to feel fairly secure that if I find a story that I really like I can probably get it done somewhat.
Gary Sinise
We don’t swim for the attention. We don’t swim to be rock stars. There is something beautiful about being in an anonymous sport and being fairly anonymous. It enables you do something you love without any of the other effects.
Aaron Peirsol
Co-sponsoring a bill is fairly easy, like a group project which you work on with others.
Jared Polis
Olympic wrestling is like using an old Nokia phone; it’s fairly basic.
The Great Khali
Moving cities are a fairly hoary old sci-fi trope – I seem to recall they were always cropping up on ‘Doctor Who’ when I was young, though I may be misremembering.
Philip Reeve
I grew up in a small town about 40 miles outside London, but it was a fairly cosmopolitan household.
Jacqueline Bisset
If I am treated fairly, I like to do things in a fair manner. That is the way I have been all my career. I haven’t tried to do things in an underhanded way.
Damon Hill
I’ve lived all over Europe, spent a lot of time in London, went to school in Scotland, college in America, so I do think I have sort of a sensibility on a fairly global level.
Duncan Jones
When I graduated college, I had a fairly successful weekly club gig and was buying more studio equipment and writing my own music. I realized I didn’t want to work.
I definitely have to admit that I am fairly ignorant, not just to ‘Tron,’ but almost any pop culture thing that I should know, at my age. I grew up without a television and rarely got to see a movie, so I didn’t really see any of that stuff, and I haven’t been able to catch up since.
Tricia Helfer
I do not at all have the mind of a bully… in my mind bullies are intolerant of contrary opinion, domineering and rather cowardly. I would hope that none of those terms could be fairly used in describing me.
Conrad Black
It is a fairly serious thing that you’re doing if you’re writing about people who are still alive and who still have a role in public life. Sometimes you don’t want to be reminded too much of the responsibility.
Peter Morgan
So even though I consider myself a fairly upbeat person, energetic and things like that, I never do very well on happiness tests.
Barbara Ehrenreich
I am fairly concise when I work and I work quickly because I think work is done better in a high gear than done our in a gear when everyone’s exhausted. Get focused, do it!
Twyla Tharp
As an actor, it’s fun to play guys who aren’t just locked into a male pattern, but a lot of guys you’re asked to play are fairly macho and have a certain rigid standard they’re living by.
Fred Ward
I ride my bike almost every day here in New York. It’s getting safer to do so, but I do have to be fairly alert when riding on the streets as opposed to riding on the Hudson River bike path or similar protected lanes.
David Byrne
I never quite know how to describe what I do. I normally just say, ‘Oh, I’m a magician’, which probably puts fairly naff ideas in people’s minds but is pleasantly conversation-stopping.
Derren Brown
I’m fairly out of the loop when it comes to pop culture.
Cynthia Nixon
I got to know Sterling Hayden fairly well. He was a quiet man, who got more complicated as the years went on.
Marie Windsor
Everyone starts out desperately trying to make a hit, but some people are just more mistake-prone than others. I happened to be fairly mistake-prone. Of the 40 shows I made, I’d say ten were hits, which is a pretty good average.
Stephen J. Cannell
The government has a history of not treating people fairly, from the internment of Japanese Americans in World War II to African-Americans in the Civil Rights era.
Rand Paul
News isn’t just what happens. It’s what a fairly small group of people decide is news.
Peter Hitchens
I’ve done more than 100 films, which is a sizeable chunk of life in cinema, so if something can startle me, then I think we can say we’re looking at something fairly new.
Prithviraj Sukumaran
I have always worked a bit with fashion people. I worked with Issey Miyake for a while, then Dolce & Gabbana; now we’re working with Valentino. It’s fine. The fashion world is a fairly weird world, but there are good people in it. It’s weird because their timetables are unbearable.
David Chipperfield
Language is one component of the human cognitive capacity which happens to be fairly amenable to enquiry. So we know a good deal about that.
Noam Chomsky
I feel like Texas high schools, when you consider the melting pot that exists in Texas, do a fairly impressive job. No education process is perfect, but I think that, with plenty of room to improve, they do an admirable job when you compare them to the rest of the field.
Mike Leach
A life of very, very serious, po-faced films would drive me nuts. I need – and I’m fortunate to have – a fairly varied menu in that respect. I mean, I was shooting ‘Mamma Mia!’ at the same time as I was doing Michael Winterbottom’s ‘Genova’. That was a very, very bizarre summer.
Colin Firth
Its going to be a squeeze, but we have got to put our men and women in uniform ahead of everything else. We’ve got to be treating our reservists fairly before we move on to other procurements.
Mark Dayton
I wanted to give people – which is fairly bizarre considering my whole life is contemporary dance really – I wanted to give people a really fulfilling sense that they had seen a white classical ballet – in a very pure form.
Graeme Murphy
I’ve done golf and fitness shoots, but in those I’m still fairly covered up.
Paige Spiranac
If they want to criticize me, I don’t care; I don’t mind. But they must criticize me fairly. Usually, the criticism is not fair. Or the praise, even the praise sometimes is not fair.
Bhumibol Adulyadej
Writers want to talk. They can’t wait to tell you what they’ve been thinking. And because they’ve been in solitude, they’ve had some fairly decent thoughts.
Mariella Frostrup
Advertising seemed almost natural to me because it was a business where you had to inform, persuade and educate. And so from being a junior copywriter to being the creative director of one of the largest advertising agencies in the country took me 4.5 years, which is, well, a fairly spectacular rise.
Bryce Courtenay
Due to these various circumstances, when I entered the Catholic University of Louvain in 1934, I had already travelled in a number of European countries and spoke four languages fairly fluently. This turned out to be a valuable asset in my subsequent career as a scientist.
Christian de Duve
It’s fairly easy to know when you’ve succeeded because you’re kind of hanging on for dear life. It’s such an unstoppable juggernaut; you’re trying to stay with your head above water because things are moving so fast.
Caterina Fake
The difference between me and American-born actors is that I came here with the expectation of not being treated fairly.
Joan Chen
My mother was an artist, and I was fairly good at art as a child. I was always the best drawer in class, except in second grade when an artistic genius passed through our school!
Natalie Babbitt
My family is almost exactly like the one in ‘Monsoon Wedding’. We are very open, fairly liberal, loud people.
Mira Nair
I have this dream life where I get to be a celebrity but I get to navigate the world fairly easily because I’m always in character.
Dana Carvey
A fairly bright boy is far more intelligent and far better company than the average adult.
John B. S. Haldane
If it is a rental property, we’ll typically keep it fairly neutral. If it’s a vacation property, we have a lot more fun and do things a little more edgy and exciting. When we’re flipping, we obviously want to make smart decisions and do things that produce great returns.
Scott McGillivray
I’m fairly conservative on social issues, but not extremely conservative and not reactionary.
John Howard
Assad is the president of Syria. He enjoys fairly effective control over his country.
Ehud Olmert
You know, sound was still a fairly new thing when I came into movies. And the reason musicals happened is because of sound. They could put music in the picture! That’s how it all began.
Stanley Donen
A writer’s life suits me. It’s fairly, well, other people might think it was actually rather dull, but that’s fine because I feel that my imagination is enough to kind of keep me happy.
Ronald Frame
‘Starcraft’ is a fairly strategic game with depth.
Michael Morhaime
I think my blog is fairly circumspect and elliptical. I’ve written personal essays, but they are short and to the point: in and out, and that’s that.
Kate Christensen
When I started doing standup when I was 17, I was talking about being Indian and specifically ethnic jokes. Straightforward stuff that was fairly ignorant that I knew would get the laugh. It wasn’t flipping stereotypes; it was using them.
Hari Kondabolu
I try to be as disciplined as I possibly can. I try to live a fairly kind of clean life. I do yoga; I cycle and do weights and swim. I do whatever it takes.
Pierce Brosnan
My ‘Pearl Harbor’ story is that I’ve never seen it, and I suspect that I was cut completely from the movie, but my name is fairly high in the credits at the end. So, anybody that’s ever said that they saw me in Pearl Harbor, I think they just saw the list of credits at the end of the movie.
Sean Gunn
I have a fairly good collection of paintings, both classical and contemporary.
Real change begins with citizens registering to vote, becoming active and engaged in their communities, and casting their ballot at every election for those who will fairly and accurately represent them.
Nina Turner
Frankly I’m fairly boring or fairly busy. Between writing and family, I have little time for anything else.
Harlan Coben
I think what we do is fairly unique on ‘Psych,’ and we just have to keep doing that because that’s what got us where we are.
James Roday
I think I write in a fairly self-confident manner.
Christopher Hitchens
Hiring and retaining talent in the tech industry is expensive and vital. Those people have real power over their bosses, especially because it is often fairly easy for them to find work elsewhere, and employee walkouts are terrible PR for these leaders who are often obsessed with their public image.
Hank Green
I’m a fairly mature woman, and I’ve realised that I’m not going to grow if I keep thinking, ‘The other heroine in the film is so much better than me.’ I would rather take inspiration from them.
Ileana D’Cruz
For instance, I’m always fascinated to see whether, given the kind of fairly known and established form called popular music, whether there is some magic combination that nobody has hit upon before.
Brian Eno
‘The Post’ is a fairly fusty place when it comes to profanity. If a reporter tries to get a bad word into a story, the word is usually forwarded to top editors, who consider it with the gravity and speed that the Vatican applies to candidates for sainthood.
David Fahrenthold
Very intense first summer out, to be 18 years old and never having gone on a date, never having smoked a cigarette, never had a drink, even a sip of beer, never kissed a girl, all of those things. It made for a fairly intense first year out.
Peter Jurasik
I feel that I’ve done what I wanted to do, and that makes me feel fairly content.
Alice Munro
As for doing good; that is one of the professions which is full. Moreover I have tried it fairly and, strange as it may seem, am satisfied that it does not agree with my constitution.
Henry David Thoreau
Because I’m fairly big, I like to use my body. So I’ll control the ball, even when there’s a player on me, and then I’ll pass.
Paul Pogba
I think it’s fairly unique to define the end goal of K-12 schooling as helping students become better thinkers, more creative thinkers, and to organize the whole school around creative and critical thinking.
Eva Moskowitz
For most of human history, there was a ruling class and then there was everybody else. If you were part of everybody else, it wasn’t your job to imagine a different future, different ways of doing things. So, imagination is a fairly modern phenomenon.
Jay S. Walker
The shock of the way I mix patterns and fabrics can be disconcerting, but what I am trying to do is provoke new ideas about how pieces can be put together in different ways. I think this is a more modern way to wear clothes that in themselves are fairly classic.
Jean Paul Gaultier
Our nation is grounded on the rule of law, and the public must be assured that government officials administer the law fairly.
Rod Rosenstein
I’m a fairly traditional British cook, as my partner Cathy doesn’t enjoy spicy food, although I like to experiment myself.
Michael Ball
I don’t think I could ever make 155. I made 163 for the Olympics, and that is a super low weight for me. I’m a fairly big person, and for me to make 163 was incredibly difficult.
Ben Askren
Age puzzles me. I thought it was a quiet time. My seventies were interesting and fairly serene, but my eighties are passionate. I grow more intense as I age.
Florida Scott-Maxwell
If people are worried, if they’re fearful, if they feel a sense of grievance or that they’re not being treated properly or that they’re not being paid fairly, what you’re going to have is you’re going to have people doing the minimum amount of work necessary to not get fired, and not a peppercorn more.
Daniel H. Pink
When a company is fairly certain of a profit margin that is substantial, it can assume responsibility for the clinical trials to develop a blockbuster drug.
Anthony Fauci
If I’m excited about it, I’m pretty sure an audience is going to enjoy it. If I’m bored with an idea, you can bet they’re going to be asleep. So I try to only do things that I’m fairly excited about.
Robert Rodriguez
I have had a great deal of interaction with Koreans and feel a fairly strong bond with Korea.
Joichi Ito
It’s a fairly common phenomenon of London life – people having fully developed critiques of books they haven’t read and films they haven’t seen. I’d probably include myself in that.
Peter Baynham
Books constitute capital. A library book lasts as long as a house, for hundreds of years. It is not, then, an article of mere consumption but fairly of capital, and often in the case of professional men, setting out in life, it is their only capital.
Thomas Jefferson
My parents took a fairly liberal approach at raising me, always encouraging me to be creative and free-thinking.
I think the biggest thing for me is being able to adjust to the way the game has changed. It’s basically a 180-degree turn from the style I like to play. That’s what I think I’m most proud of, being able to fit into this style of game and still be fairly successful.
Brett Hull
Writing, by nature, is a fairly solitary occupation.
Michael Cimino
You don’t want to end up telling somebody who’s homeless or a refugee that stress is all perceptual, because it sure isn’t in those cases. But most of us have fairly neurotic middle-class stressors.
Robert Sapolsky
I would rather be a fairly happy wife and mother.
Mary MacLane
I have a fairly limited drawing style. I’m not like my friend Derek Kirk Kim, who can pretty much change his style at will. My drawing style can handle some of my stories, but not all of them.
Gene Luen Yang
I’m probably not your typical business person in many ways. I don’t wear a suit. I don’t carry a briefcase. I don’t wear a tie. I’m fairly casual. I haven’t got a big office, and it’s in a very ordinary part of town. I’d much prefer to downplay than impress.
Gerry Harvey
I get music from odd places that I assume are fairly typical at this point. I’ll just go on iTunes, go to EDM and just look at the Top 100, or I’ll go on the Beats app and look on the playlists that are sort of curated.
Neal Brennan
The HoLee model was the first term structure model. I remember reading their paper soon after it was published and as it was fairly different from many of the other papers that I had read, I had to read it quite a few times. I realized that it was a really important paper.
John Hull
Now I am a writer who can command fairly good payments from magazines with large circulations, I very often refuse to write for them and still write sometimes for small magazines for nothing.
George Woodcock
I have turned away from the thought of writing fiction in the past through what I suppose is, actually, fear. The direct, raw invitation for the reader to come in and explore my imagination is fairly scary for me so I have busied myself with so much else.
Dawn French
From what I can tell, pollsters are generally fairly stick-to-the-facts folks. They deal in facts and statistics.
Sharyl Attkisson
By that time – the early ’70s – Vimal was a fairly successful textile brand. So everybody expected me to do textile engineering. I shocked them by saying that I would go to IIT.
Mukesh Ambani
You might think of consumption as a fairly passive activity, but buying new products and services is actually pretty risky, at least if you value your time and money.
James Surowiecki
The greatest sin of the academic left is that it has become fundamentally aristocratic, writing in bizarre jargon that makes cliches seem abstruse. If you can’t explain your ideal to a fairly intelligent 12-year-old, it’s probably your own fault.
Rutger Bregman
There is a dark side to being single in a great big city like New York. There’s this sense of isolation and I think you can get fairly desperate.
Brad Hall
I was fairly young when we moved to Santa Fe, but it wasn’t long after that I started to figure out who I was, and that entire process took place in this city.
Michelle Lujan Grisham
I grew up in a neighbourhood where there was a lot of fighting. It’s what boys did during school, during recess, after school. And I was a fairly large kid. So everyone wanted to see if they could take me on.
Mark Kurlansky
Actually, parts of New Zealand remind me of Suffolk. There’s not many flat bits, but just the atmosphere there. There’s a kind of a core tranquility about it, a kind of assuredness that this is fairly close to approaching the perfect way to be.
Bernard Hill
I’m somebody who hasn’t really felt fairly confident in my own life.
Rachel Brosnahan
I’ve used Fender Strats with Marshalls since forever, though since I last played London, I’ve switched to my YJM Seymour Duncan pickups, and I also have a Fender YJM overdrive pedal, which is fairly new.
Yngwie Malmsteen
At any period of an actor’s life, it’s fairly likely that they’ll be cast in ways that are reminiscent. That’s the way it goes.
Ben Mendelsohn
The prison system in Norway is fairly civilized, by world standards, and so are the prisoners and the guards.
Varg Vikernes
My job at the CFPB, as President Obama told me when he interviewed me, was to stand on the side of people in the financial marketplace and see that they were treated fairly.
Richard Cordray
I feel as if I’ve been fairly successful with maintaining a cohesive tone between the work I make as a photographer and as a director.
Aaron Ruell
I am a fairly mongrelized person – you know I’ve been a migrant my whole life, and it’s hard to think of myself as any pure one thing. And so I take it, I guess, very personally – this notion that migrants are bad and that mixing is bad and that people from other places are bad.
Mohsin Hamid
My parents were fairly laid-back, but there were certain things about which they were very strict. My brother and I were told never to turn away a person in need. And it didn’t matter what we thought of their motives, whether they were truly in need or not.
Hisham Matar
We are passionate about making it so that users enjoy the music that they want to enjoy but at the same time fairly compensates artists. That’s not the same as saving the music industry.
Daniel Ek
I have a philosophy that has guided me throughout all of my scientific career, and that is, I think of myself as a fairly thoughtful person. I don’t go into projects impetuously, and I try to select important problems.
Eric Kandel
I think love can come fairly easily and grow – but really liking the core essence of someone is a much harder thing to bottle. If you have both, you’re in pretty good shape.
Eric Bana
My office-hour reading is fairly ad hoc: I generally read whatever seems relevant to what I’m editing, writing, or thinking about writing.
Bret Stephens
I want to be paid fairly for the work that I’m doing. That’s what every single woman around the world wants. We want to be paid on parity with a man in a similar position.
Felicity Jones
If the system is broken, my inclination is to fix it rather than to fight it. I have faith in the process of the law, and if it is carried out fairly, I can live with the results, whatever they may be.
Sonia Sotomayor
My relationships are fairly stable.
Nick Hornby
If you find a series of linear shapes in the same alignment as known archaeological features, and they match excavated examples, you still need to excavate to confirm, but you can be fairly sure that the imagery is accurate.
Sarah Parcak
‘Somebody That I Used to Know,’ like a lot of the record, was a bit of a struggle to finish. It was written fairly quickly – I wrote it in November 2010 – but it took six months to find Kimbra and really realize she was the right vocalist to make the female part come to life. There were constant hurdles.
I was born with fairly serious scoliosis, and I did not walk at all until I was about two-and-a-half years old.
Emil Ferris
Writers divide fairly cleanly into those who only work through what they hear and those who are more visual. I am the latter, where I lie down on my office floor and play scenes through my head to – cinematically, several times with different elements – to see what works. I can’t write a scene until I can see it.
Jojo Moyes
I run a business and go all over the world doing things for that business, things that are fairly orthogonal. But my job is to run my company, not to be the best Instagrammer. I’ll let other people be awesome at it.
Kevin Systrom
The Alabama Department of Revenue is vital to state government, ensuring citizens are treated fairly and that all tax dollars are collected.
Kay Ivey
I don’t think well of people who are prejudiced against people because of race. The only way for prejudiced people to change is for them to decide for themselves that all human beings should be treated fairly. We can’t force them to think that way.
Rosa Parks
I’ve always considered myself a fairly romantic person. I believe in love and falling in love at a young age.
Mandy Moore
I would dare say that most anyone in public life, if they stay in public long enough, is not treated fairly.
Vince McMahon
A lot of actors seem to dislike typecasting these days. The funny thing is, that’s a fairly recent development. It used to be that actors wanted to be typecast so audiences could remember them and identify with them.
Dick Van Dyke
I suppose directing on set is the most fun because it’s a good crack and you feel you’re on the battlefield whereas writing is a fairly solitary undertaking.
Guy Ritchie
Everybody gets a little dose of Shakespeare. He’s the greatest playwright in the English language, but his politics are fairly square.
Alex Cox
The truth is I’m fairly relaxed.
Diego Costa
We have played so well that the guys have really made my job fairly easy.
Ricky Ponting
Inspired by the purse rather than the soul, the mercenary side fairly screams in many of the works put out by every day American publishers.
Alma Gluck
In the early ’60s, it was still a fairly subversive thing, though, to say that you should take a painting, cut it, set it on fire, step on it, hammer nails into it.
Elvis Mitchell
I’m really familiar with what Cardboard’s doing; it’s not a novel concept. Cardboard is in many ways a direct ripoff of FOV2GO, a project I helped work on when I was at ICT, and it was fairly well known in the academic VR community.
Palmer Luckey
I’ve always loved the seaside and I used to be a fairly keen surfer, but it’s a solitary activity so when my husband and I had children, we bought sit-on-top kayaks. Whenever possible, we escape to the coast or explore rivers with them.
Alice Roberts
I have a fairly realistic idea about what my gifts and limitations are.
Amanda Peet
Eating-wise, I’m fairly disciplined. I have to be, because if you’re not eating correctly, you’re not giving your body the fuel it needs. So, I stay away from carbs after the morning, and I eat a lot of protein – fish, chicken, and no red meat.
Kate Levering
Hardcover books are fairly expensive these days and to read one requires a significant commitment of time in our busy society. So I want to make sure that when readers buy one of my books they get something they’re familiar with.
Jeffery Deaver
In 1992, I was part of the Test team and played the Tri-series too. But, I missed the World Cup after being left out of the squad since I was fairly young.
Sourav Ganguly
It’s a werewolf movie with Christina Ricci, and it was a chance to work with some good people. But playing yourself is always fairly risky because you gotta watch how you goof on yourself.
Scott Baio
My own personality is fairly optimistic and generally very happy, but like everyone else I’ve been through difficult stuff, particularly in my teenage years, where I experienced enough melancholia to feed any number of electronic records.
Jon Hopkins
The type of person I am, I mean, I’m fairly jealous.
Valentin Chmerkovskiy
Even fairly serious moviegoers can’t shake this shadow of the corporate world.
Noah Baumbach
The original version of C did not have structures. So to make tables of objects, process tables and file tables and this tables and that tables, it really was fairly painful.
Dennis Ritchie
How can you interview somebody about something fairly technical if you start on the wrong foot by not even knowing his name?
Trevor McDonald
I just want to believe that, as a citizen in this country, that I have equal protection under the law and that I can have a situation assessed fairly, that people can look at it, and that a court of law can determine what the outcome is.
Danny K. Davis
I’m fairly obedient. I do what I’m told.
Marian Seldes
Maybe we ought to have a world in which things are divided between people kind of fairly.
Herbert A. Simon
In life, we mostly manage to walk around interacting with each other fairly politely. But as soon as we get into our cars, we morph into something out of ‘Mad Max’.
Romesh Ranganathan
All women should have the ability to get ahead with hard work, be treated fairly in the workplace, and live free from fear.
Conner Eldridge
When I lived in Baltimore, I would come down fairly often to go to the Hirshhorn, and one of my good friends from high school went to Georgetown. I actually ended up going to Annapolis a lot. I had a car, and it was such a serene place to drive.
Abbi Jacobson
