I see the tool set being the same and maybe doing virtual movies and that’s fine for some stories but not for others. And maybe make all CG movies but they are already doing it.

If I’m going to be ‘too’ anything, ‘too cute’ is fine. I love puppies. So what? Who hates puppies?

A lot of parents tell their children that if they want to be an actor, that’s fine, but they should do something else first, so they’ve got something to fall back on. It doesn’t work like that, as far as I’m concerned.

It is a fine seasoning for joy to think of those we love.
Work hard, take care of yourself, and you’ll be just fine.

I am fine playing ‘Law & Order’ and even the ‘Jurassic’ movies to be straight up, as far as the characters being portrayed there, but I never want to stay in straight-up land too long. I always wanted to do something where the character’s world gets to be explored.
Getting older is fine. There is nothing you can do to stop it so you might as well stay on the bus.
You hear about these shows where there are all these women are supposedly always in a catfight, and then you find out in reality that they’re all getting along fine.

This is not to say that the Scots are not fine people, but they were all sort of… well, my grandfather was a minister and sort of Protestant, and this was rather depressing to me.
In the beginning I used to say, ‘I’m healthy, my cholesterol’s fine, I don’t have high blood pressure, I don’t have diabetes.’ By telling people that you see a doctor, and telling people that you’re healthy, it’s perpetuating the abuse against bigger bodies and the mindset that we owe it to people to be healthy.
If you want to be a successful runner, you have to consider everything. It’s no good just thinking about endurance and not to develop fine speed.
I do not want a personal relationship with my fans. Or to do anything that encourages them to think they have one with me. They can have a personal relationship with my songs. That’s fine, but they don’t know me.
I think there’s nothing better than laughing in life, so that’s nice, to be thought of as someone who can make someone laugh. It’s ’cause I think life is hard. You know, my dad was a really silly man. A great Irish silly man. And that’s fine.
I believe family first. Blood is thicker than water. I grew up like that, and I want to continue to keep that goal in my heart. Just family first! Just honesty, integrity, and respect. All of that. I live by the code of those things. If you do that you’ll be fine.
After some time, with my eyes closed, I began to enjoy this wonderful play of colors and forms, which it really was a pleasure to observe. Then I went to sleep and the next day I was fine. I felt quite fresh, like a newborn.
My favorite thing in the world is a box of fine European chocolates which is, for sure, better than sex.
I have a fine sense of the ridiculous, but no sense of humor.

I’m 24. I think when I was 18, 19, I had a problem with it because I wanted to look older and more womanly. I look in the mirror and I don’t feel or look 14 to myself, regardless of what other people think. I’m fine with it and it really doesn’t matter what age I’m playing.
It’s like you always have to put on a happy face, be the phony baloney, and I’m so not that. I never was that; I’ll never be that. That is part of the business that I don’t like. Maybe that will always keep me an outsider, I don’t know. But that’s fine.
Again, like I said, we’re not trying to censor anyone. If you think drugs are cool, fine. Make that movie. We are not going to stop you, or try to stop you, but we would encourage other people to be a bit more responsible about their portrayal of drug usage.
It is going to be an experiment of how it works, and I see I have all reasons to believe that it will work fine. But it’s a short time. And we also have pushed the envelope here a little beyond what has been done in the past.
In fine, nothing is said now that has not been said before.

I know my name gets used illegally all the time all over the internet. You know, it is a trademarked name, so it will be something that we always have to deal with. I never needed to change it. It was always fine with me. It is a strange name; that’s for sure.
I don’t believe in politics. I’m an anarchist, I guess you could say. I think people could be just fine looking after themselves.
The intellectual is a middle-class product; if he is not born into the class he must soon insert himself into it, in order to exist. He is the fine nervous flower of the bourgeoisie.

There are certain things I don’t want to joke about. If it’s about somebody else, it’s fine. If it’s about me, I think it’s totally insensitive!

Eartha Mae is very shy. She’s scared to be seen, scared of rejection and even afraid of affection. Relationships can be rather uncomfortable for her. But, as Eartha Kitt, it’s fine. I can accept and reject any time I want to. Do I ever reject? Not really. Although people think I do!
I spent so long studying really hard to become a fine actor, but threw it all away because I got the adulation and the fame so easily.
Money is not everything. My ambition was football itself, not the money I’d make from it. If that brings me and my family a more comfortable lifestyle, then that’s fine. But I don’t spend my time between games and training sessions thinking about figures.
I once had a rose named after me and I was very flattered. But I was not pleased to read the description in the catalogue: no good in a bed, but fine up against a wall.
Plastic surgery and breast implants are fine for people who want that, if it makes them feel better about who they are. But, it makes these people, actors especially, fantasy figures for a fantasy world. Acting is about being real being honest.

I may discuss love, and I don’t mind if two men fall in love, fine. Two women, fine. But I flinch when I think of two Jewish women getting together and having a child because the idea of having two Jewish mothers makes my head explode. I have one; I couldn’t handle two.
In world cricket, I think Joe Root is a fine captain.
I’m fine with just a simple life.
I’ve seen other artists put out movies that went straight to DVD, and no one cared. Maybe their own fans bought the thing, and that was fine.
There’s no handbook for parenting. So you walk a very fine line as a parent because you are civilizing these raw things. They will tip the coffee over and finger-paint on the table. At some point, you have to say, ‘We’re gonna have to clean that up because you don’t paint with coffee on a table.’
For me, there’s a fine line between being a cheeseball and being a good performer.
One chord is fine. Two chords are pushing it. Three chords and you’re into jazz.
I’m a firm believer in God himself, but that’s as far as I can go. I’m not any denomination. I’m not Catholic or Presbyterian or Baptist or Methodist or Jewish or Muslim. I’m none of those things. And I’m sure that’s just fine with God.
Look, three love affairs in history, are Abelard and Eloise, Romeo and Juliet and the American media and this President at the moment. But this doesn’t matter over time. Reality will impinge.

My nerves before a gig got worse; I had terrible bad nerves all the time. Once we started… I was fine.

On a personal level, we all get along fine.
Life is that perfect fine line between ironies.

Sometimes there has to be a goat on some level, and I’m totally fine with that being me.

I think it is fine to have sports divided into men’s and women’s, just as it is fine to say a fifteen-year-old is incapable of consenting to sex. But we should recognize these are social distinctions based on biology, and not categories foisted upon us by nature.
Everybody says they want to have private providers and we’re saying fine. Let the states negotiate on behalf of a population in your state to drive down your costs. Don’t just give subsidies to insurance companies for expensive insurance.

When you’re doing a TV show, it’s not like you just shoot for six weeks and you’re in an editing room with all of your footage. It’s like a guitar or a car, you have to fine tune things. You stop doing what’s not working, you work on what is working and you add things that do work.
I get called an adrenaline junkie every other minute, and I’m just fine with that.
Concentration is a fine antidote to anxiety.

The people I’ve respected most in the industry over the years – Paul Newman, for instance. I just loved the way he handled growing old on-screen. It’s understanding that you’re now basically a character actor. Which is fine, but you have to pay attention to it.
A fine quotation is a diamond in the hand of a man of wit and a pebble in the hand of a fool.
I’ve always been a fine artist.
The truth is, you cannot run a political campaign like a tech startup. Technology is a field that fetishizes disruption. The old ways are suspect, and we place an almost irrational trust on new tools. That’s fine for developing games, but it was a failing playbook for politics.
At my age, you need to verify that everything is fine. I put a lot of pressure on my body, and I feel sometimes pain in my back and in my knees, so I have to be sure that I can keep on training hard before going on.

I’m fine with being beat-up and pushed around, but I’m really scared of heights and scared of ledges.

When I read the pilot ‘for Married with Children’, it just reminded me of my Uncle Joe… just a self-deprecating kind of guy. He’d come home from work, and the wife would maybe say ‘I ran over the dog this morning in the driveway’. And he would say ‘Fine, what’s for dinner?
Someday, I expect to see a television version of ‘Hamlet’ and see Hamlet come on during the intermission and hold up his sword and say ‘This is made of the same fine steel as such-and-such razor blades.’
The sun sucks. I used to love the sun, but now I hate it because it just wants to kill everything. I always tell everyone, if you don’t want to do skin care, fine, but at least put sunscreen on. The reason why we have little freckles, skin cancer, and wrinkles is because of the sun.
Fines are preferable to imprisonment and other types of punishment because they are more efficient. With a fine, the punishment to offenders is also revenue to the State.

With animal behavior, they’re all fine until you introduce some rogue element into the cage, and then they go crazy.
What people don’t understand is joining a gang ain’t bad, it’s cool, it’s fine. When you in the hood, joining a gang it’s cool because all your friends are in the gang, all your family’s in the gang. We’re not just killing people every night, we’re just hanging out, having a good time.
Catholics have guilt and Jews have guilt, fine. But mothers can trump them all.
I know how I like my house. I like it cute and cozy and a little funky, and I like it to feel lived in and worn, and I like the things inside of it to work. That’s all. And for me, it’s fine that my house’s interior suggests that I might not spend every waking moment thinking about how it looks.
I believe in believing. My coach John Kavanagh is a big atheist, and he is always trying to persuade people to his way of thinking, and I think, ‘What a waste of energy.’ If people want to believe in this god or that god, that’s fine by me; believe away. But I think we can be our own gods. I believe in myself.
I’ll tell you the truth: I had a double brandy before the game but, before, it used to be four bottles of whisky. Not any more. I was fine. I had a glass of wine after the game. But it was just a mouthful.
Water doesn’t hurt a vinyl record. Put it into a dishwasher and you’re fine.
There’s a fine line between a stream of consciousness and a babbling brook to nowhere.
In the courtroom, it’s where a lawyer really becomes an actor. There’s a very fine line between delivering a monologue in a play and delivering a monologue to a jury. I’ve always felt that way – I’ve been in a lot of courtrooms. The best lawyers are really theatrical.
We’re all biased, right, in many different ways – politically, religiously, ideologically, the way our family raised us – and that’s fine.

You have to know yourself so well and be able to put it on whatever display you want to put it on and be confident in that and be fine with it.

The best effort of a fine person is felt after we have left their presence.
It takes a lot of people. I would not swim if it was just me. If I didn’t have any teammates, I couldn’t stay in a pool for two hours, twice a day, nine times a week. I can’t do that. And I’m fine with admitting that. I couldn’t do this by myself.
It’s fine by me, even if I score with my hand.
I’m never happy with the work I put in. No. I need to be told by my director and people around me that it is fine. Otherwise, I’ll even go, like, ‘One more take.’

We sold a certain, steady amount of product for them and they could count on it. When it came time to ask for the money for this new record, they dropped us. It was fine with us. It was a dead fish.
I think my voice worked out fine, but it was a lot of work for me. And I was very self-conscious about it. I was a bit self-conscious about writing lyrics too.
I think what I do differently from a lot of TV chefs is that I break down barriers and make fine food more accessible to the regular person, who might be intimidated. I try hard, particularly with wine, to make it not intimidating. It’s sort of a teaching job.
Whenever I feel mom-guilt, or I feel pressure to be a better mom – to cook salmon on a bed of quinoa for my kids – I just think to myself, ‘I… have… suffered… enough.’ And then I feel fine about feeding my toddler a bag of chips for dinner.
I can’t do it every day. They’re not going to give me much to hit right now. They’re pitching me real well. If I get there, fine.
The weather and my mood have little connection. I have my foggy and my fine days within me; my prosperity or misfortune has little to do with the matter.
So I continued through my next school, which takes me up to the age of 17, moving from the bottom stream of one year into the bottom stream of the next year, all the way through. I showed other talents which gave me self-respect, which is fine.
If I don’t like a person and a person doesn’t like me fine, that’s mutual respect.
There is no such thing as immaterial matter. All spirit is matter, but is more fine or pure, and can only be discerned by purer eyes. We cannot see it, but when our bodies are purified, we shall see that it is all matter.

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen, it said ‘Parking Fine.’ So that was nice.
One mistake and all this attention may just disappear one fine day. So I prefer to remain grounded.

There are times that I see comments on Instagram and Twitter – if you are bashing my character on television, that is fine. I am totally cool with that. I’m a bad guy for a reason.

I wouldn’t say Malkovich is totally insane, but he’s not living in the real world. He’s living in his world, which is a fine world to live in apparently.
You will often be in despair. You will sometimes think it’s the worst decision in your life. That’s fine. That’s not a sign your marriage has gone wrong. It’s a sign that it’s normal; it’s on track. And many of the hopes that took you into the marriage will have to die in order for the marriage to continue.
If you rewrite a paragraph fifty times and forty-nine of them are terrible, that’s fine; you only need to get it right once.

I’m fine, but I’m bipolar. I’m on seven medications, and I take medication three times a day. This constantly puts me in touch with the illness I have. I’m never quite allowed to be free of that for a day. It’s like being a diabetic.

A lot of medicines are not there to cure diseases. That’s fine – drugs that keep people alive who wouldn’t otherwise be alive are useful. What I object to is the drug companies’ advertising, which you see everywhere in the U.S., which claims that they are curing diseases when they’re not.
