Success is full of promise till one gets it, and then it seems like a nest from which the bird has flown.
One of the important lessons of the Internet is, how easy it is to get things done completely shapes what gets created. For that reason, technologies like Amazon’s cloud service are very important. Even if they aren’t technically impressive, they make things easy to do.
I can take it. The tougher it gets, the cooler I get.
I don’t know if I actually am good at the sight of blood. An accident on the street gets me very, very upset.

A society that gets rid of all its troublemakers goes downhill.

When everything is easy one quickly gets stupid.
Ben Roethlisberger is a proven winner in athletic competition. But the measure of a true leader is how they conduct themselves 24/7, not just during a winning touchdown drive or a goal-line stance. Leadership isn’t something that gets switched off because the game clock expires.

An author is somebody who writes a story. It doesn’t matter if you’re a kid or if you’re a grown-up, it doesn’t matter if the book gets published and lots of people get to read it, or if you make just one copy and you share that book with one friend.
You can’t really judge characters, because that’s when it gets really hard to play them.
It’s a weird thing. Rick Springfield wrote ‘Jessie’s Girl,’ and he probably gets sick of talking about ‘Jessie’s Girl.’ The thing is, I didn’t write ‘Blurred Lines.’ I didn’t direct the music video. I’m really happy for the success, but it is kind of a funny thing to follow me around.

Sometimes the right thing gets done for the wrong reason and sometimes, unfortunately, the wrong thing gets done for the right reason.
When I’m the happiest, my desk is not neat. It has lots of pens and the books I love. It gets messy when I’m in the flow. So many houses are so neat.
The poem is not, as someone put it, deflective of entry. But the real question is, ‘What happens to the reader once he or she gets inside the poem?’ That’s the real question for me, is getting the reader into the poem and then taking the reader somewhere, because I think of poetry as a kind of form of travel writing.
If baking is any labor at all, it’s a labor of love. A love that gets passed from generation to generation.
So many people get involved with carrying grudges and having these moral battles with people, where they cast themselves as the righteous and the other guy is the dirtbag. They waste tons of energy on it, create all kinds of darkness around themselves and the other person. It gets you nothing.

I like controversy. The more controversial it gets, the more interesting it is.

A great merchant delivers both joy and profit. Then profit gets reinvested in more joy.
I’m blessed to come from a family with five brothers. We’re all physical and athletic and like to work out, like to be outside, like to throw the ball around.

As a female, you are often being asked by directors to be warmer, softer, flirt more, smile more etc… None of those things are bad, and obviously we are capable of a variety of human behavior, but it gets really old having to play into somebody’s stereotype or ideal.
Sitting on a plastic chair at night listening to the sea lapping below while sipping a cold beer is about as good as life gets.

I think luck is the sense to recognize an opportunity and the ability to take advantage of it… The man who can smile at his breaks and grab his chances gets on.

One of the obsessions that the Soviet Union and the Eastern European communist parties had was always controlling the message – all information that everybody gets has to be carefully controlled and monitored. Art was no exception.

I don’t think anyone really gets used to being recognized around the world. It kind of feels like a videogame at times, especially with paparazzi and people following you and things of that nature. But it’s part of who I am now.
The thing about curly hair is that it’s a toss-up. Some days you can let it air dry and it’s better than a hair-do, but some days you just look like a sloppy person. I’m really resistant to a trim. I only do it when it gets hard to brush out in the shower, then I’ll submit, begrudgingly.
I watch Jon Stewart because I need to laugh. Otherwise, life gets too serious. Besides that, I don’t watch any news.

People keep asking how anthropology is different from sociology, and everybody gets nervous.
Jokes apart, people are constantly asking me, ‘What are you doing for the industry?’ When one makes a blockbuster, you plough back money into the industry. If my film makes 100 crore, I’m not taking the entire sum home! It gets distributed between the exhibitors, distributors, producers and actors.
In the simplest terms, a leader is one who knows where she wants and gets up and goes.

Never argue at the dinner table, for the one who is not hungry always gets the best of the argument.

I feel that the music that I do is somewhat of a lost art and it’s not as popular as dance or pop music and people are not as interested in it. But it’s something that I believe in and I feel that it’s needed, so that’s why I do it and I will keep doing it until everybody hears it and gets it.
It’s fun being one of the boys. It’s fun to have a character that’s rough and gets down and dirty and not to be this precious girl who just sits in the corner and just sort of stands by the action.
I’m blessed enough to been in the game for a while and still have my beautiful fans and still have the respect. That’s something that gets me going. I’m also fortunate enough to take vacation and take a little hiatus.

The greenhorn is the ultimate victor in everything; it is he that gets the most out of life.

The restructuring theme can be of various kinds. Some amount of debt gets serviced out of cash flows, some gets back-ended and resolved with sale of non-core assets of the company, and some debt gets converted into equity which might today look like a haircut.
Taking risks is the best thing ever, and that’s what gets you anywhere.
Basic Instinct 2′ is an uneasy experience because, although it is hyper-reflexive to the point where it is hard to think of one character, one scene, one plot twist that isn’t a reference or an echo, there is nothing knowing about it. No matter how absurd the film gets, it refuses to raise its eyebrows.

The wheel that squeaks the loudest is the one that gets the grease.

Ricky Washington is from a Baptist church in Miami, Florida, and he can pretty much sing anything. We just started working it up at soundcheck, and holy smokes, it’s just great!

Usually action films have a formula: good guy gets in trouble, his wife dies, friends have problems, so he goes to the mountain, learns martial arts, comes back, and kills the bad guy.

The great secret of success is to go through life as a man who never gets used up.
Everybody gets so much information all day long that they lose their common sense.
The chemistry at a table is so important. You must start with a carefully balanced mix of personalities. If the balance is off, and the stakes are too big for some of the players, it kills the game. Too small, and everybody gets bored.

If you’re always strict with yourself, life gets miserable. And we’re supposed to enjoy life.

As a housewife, I feel that if the kids are still alive when my husband gets home from work, then hey, I’ve done my job.
I’ll fight you, and I’ll have respect at the end. If you win, I have respect; if I win, I expect respect, Ray Mercer, man, I don’t want to mention this guy’s name anymore. He gets no respect from me. He was not professional, and he showed poor sportsmanship.
Just do some kind of workout. Doesn’t matter if it’s going for a walk around the block, going for a jog, doing some calisthenics, lifting weights, going to a pool and swimming – you name it. But do something that gets your blood flowing and gets your mind in the game.
History shows the power-grab in every religion once it gets organised. And then it’s people making you do things that you don’t agree with and setting the rules. But it does mean something to me to believe that we are not alone – the human animal is quite a scary thing, left on its own.
I do believe at the end of the night when you’re with your family, the character gets hung up on the door like a coat, and is there to be taken on the next morning.
On the ‘Star,’ you were forced to learn to write a simple declarative sentence. This is useful to anyone. Newspaper work will not harm a young writer and could help him if he gets out of it in time.

I think one reason for a successful marriage is laughter. I think laughter gets you through the rough moments in a marriage.
I decided at 15 that I didn’t want to be one of those artists that gets up and sings love songs they don’t mean. I decided that I was going to be me to the fullest extent, that my songs were going to reflect relationships I’ve had, things I’ve been through, and even the stuff I’m embarrassed about.

I love being an enigma.

I wanted to be the guy you can’t figure out.’
In my position when things are going well it’s pretty easy to say that I’m sort of the guy that fixes everything. But if things are going bad then I’m the one that gets all the blame. In the end, we all do it together.
Everyone gets surprised because neither one of my parents play golf. Like I said in my speech, my aunt and uncle really love golf, and we visited them, and she gave me two clubs. Like people think when they don’t know who my dad is, they think he’s my coach.
You get yourself up for it somehow, and your endurance and the crowd gets you up, too.
I’ve had people hate me for my appearance. I think it gets me a certain level of empathy with the audience. If I was white and handsome and privileged, I probably couldn’t talk about what I talk about because people wouldn’t believe that I have empathy or I could be evenhanded and objective. It’s strange.
I liked how ‘Star Wars’ felt both old and new. I even built a model of R2-D2, taking about two months mixing two kits to make one that looked just like the real thing. I’m the kind of person who gets really into it when I do something like that.
Everybody gets opportunities; what you do with them is up to you.
My dad always said, ‘Champ, the measure of a man is not how often he is knocked down, but how quickly he gets up.’
The concept of minimum wage is crazy, if you really stop to think about it. If $8 an hour seems right, why not $20 an hour? If it’s coming by order of the government, why stop at any level? Why not just say everyone should get what Gates gets?
If you are a creative person, then your mind gets sharper with age. My mind is very sharp, and I am happy for that.
And I want to do it the right way, like everybody else, not just a famous figurehead that gets a job because he is a famous basketball player. I want to really learn the business.
One gets to the heart of the matter by a series of experiences in the same pattern, but in different colors.
I’m not somebody who gets teared up or anything, but I still look up at the stars, and it gives me hope, and it gives me energy. I think one of the things that we have to think about it is, we are all a part of this universe.
I’m at the point now where I know I’m doing something right when a movie gets mixed reviews, because then I’m not in the box. I don’t want to make it too easy for people and I don’t want to make it too easy for myself. I want to try something unusual.
I love the whole idea of family and what gets left behind when you are gone. I’m very proud of my children; I was one of seven.
I have the distinct feeling that when I’m old, and I look back on my life, my thirties will be one huge blur. There’s a lot that gets neglected: exercise, dishes, laundry, my poor garden. I try to prioritize the important but non-urgent things over the unimportant but urgent things.
One of the great joys of life is creativity. Information goes in, gets shuffled about, and comes out in new and interesting ways.
Fame legitimizes. Being conspicuous gets confused with being illustrious.

I’m a sucker for a man who cries. It just gets to me.
As racing drivers, you always have those moments that it gets a bit heated, but then you start from zero again.

Everything that gets born dies.
Unions are the result of profit seekers. Unions are the way the average guy gets even with evil corporateers. The unions are godsends. The unions have a special status, because they represent the rising up of the average man against the evil corporateers and profiteers.
Playwriting gets into your blood and you can’t stop it. At least not until the producers or the public tell you to.
If you’re unhappy with what you’ve had over the last 50 years, you have an unfortunate misappraisal of life. It’s as good as it gets, and it’s very likely to get worse.
Prior to ‘Action’ and ‘Justice League 1,’ there was no label ‘superhero’ for a superpowered being. It’s really the emergence of Superman and the Justice League that gets the public comfortable with the idea of people amongst us who have extraordinary power and that they’ve agreed to be our champions.
We don’t put gender roles on our marriage and our relationship. If I’m working a lot and Cory’s home, he will put Cree to bed, and if dishes need to be washed, he will wash them. So it’s not like, ‘Oh, I’m going to wait until my wife gets home, and she’s going to be doing all that.’
A wise man gets more use from his enemies than a fool from his friends.
I take in a lot of stuff from real life, movies, television, news and it all gets mixed in my head and somehow turns into a story idea.
What annoys people is the idea that somebody has everything, and they’re allowed to get away with anything. It’s the sense of entitlement that gets up people’s noses.
The early bird may get the worm, but its the second mouse that gets the cheese.
He whose wisdom cannot help him, gets no good from being wise.
Humans are creatures of habit. If you quit when things get tough, it gets that much easier to quit the next time. On the other hand, if you force yourself to push through it, the grit begins to grow in you.
I have the same bedroom I’ve always had. It’s clean and tidy when I get home, and after two or three days it gets messy and my mother nags me.
I definitely strive towards something I think of as a hallucination of music. That’s always been the OPN vibe. I think of it as mostly a felt thing, and a koan of feeling that is shared between me and OPN fans. We know what it is when it gets there.
A good feeling for me is when you train, and then you put on fresh clothes. New clothes after a training session – you have this rush of endorphins from exercise that everybody gets, and then you get that nice feeling of fresh clothes. It’s a double whammy.
I think Taeyang developed this image as a dancing singer, mostly because of records like ‘Only Look At Me,’ and ‘Where U At.’ To me, personally, I think Taeyang tried to make a change on ‘I Need a Girl.’ It gets a little mellower.
In local government, it’s very clear to your customers – your citizens – whether or not you’re delivering. Either that pothole gets filled in, or it doesn’t. The results are very much on display, and that creates a very healthy pressure to innovate.
Often, we feel helpless in lots of situations in our lives. The way anger gets a grip on us is it seems to be a way to extricate ourselves from helplessness.
Salespeople are the most important people in any organization. Until a salesperson gets an order, nobody in the company has a job.
In my view, product/market fit is the most important thing to get right as a startup entrepreneur. There’s a variety of ways to do it, but without solving some pain point that the customer gets so excited about they tell their friends, it’s really hard in the modern age to get any liftoff.
A good commentator is someone who obviously people like listening to, who gets the blend between description, entertainment and accuracy of conveying the event right. If you can do that in an interesting way, you are a good commentator.
A boot-camp class that combines upper- and lower-body moves – like walking lunges and push-ups – gets the heart rate up quickly, burning fat and calories and toning muscles in a time-efficient way.
When truth has no burning, then it is philosophy, when it gets burning from the heart, it becomes poetry.
Repeating, trying to repeat success – it never gets easier.
You can’t tell the story of a 13-year-old boy who knows every lyric to ‘Phantom of the Opera’ without also referencing how much teasing he gets at school.
Communication, that keeps everything cool. Not holding anything back, you got to tell each other what’s on your mind, that’s really it. Otherwise when one gets mad at one, it can burst and you just let it out and it can just come out wrong.
Baseball is like driving, it’s the one who gets home safely that counts.
I always say that practice gets you to the top most of the time.
As life goes on, life just gets harder.
You’re only as old as you feel, and I feel pretty young. I’ve got one gear, and till it gets reversed, I’m going all out.
Everyone gets in a bad mood at some point – a striker because there is allegedly a new striker on the way, the same for a midfielder.
Nobody gets excited about the future at all, ever. The future is something we find depressing and worrisome.
The whole social media thing is ridiculous. Everybody gets to say what they want all the time. That’s fine in theory, but it’s not civilised. Imagine going into a bar, and everybody in that bar is talking like people do online. They’d just get their teeth punched in.
The world gets better every day – then worse again in the evening.
I’m actually quite a nice person. It’s to do with the way I look, an uncompromising sort of face, brusque delivery and voice, and I think the combination of all that. When I’m doing pantomime, children will scream the place down before I open my mouth. There’s obviously something that really gets them.
It’s the poignancy and sadness in things that gets to me.
Macklemore gets a Grammy over Kendrick Lamar. I still can’t get over that. But again, it’s not Macklemore’s fault. It’s the way of the country.
My dog doesn’t worry about the meaning of life. She may worry if she doesn’t get her breakfast, but she doesn’t sit around worrying about whether she will get fulfilled or liberated or enlightened. As long as she gets some food and a little affection, her life is fine.
Nothing gets a bigger laugh than when you refer to things like ethics or human rights.
When I talk about that Apple ecosystem, the ability to get one application to run across those five platforms is very difficult. In the future of Microsoft, using HTML5, IE9 and 10, the scalable OS, the ability to do that gets much, much easier.
When the going gets tough, I’m not always sure what you do. I’m not saying that I know how to fix everything when the going gets tough, but I do know this: when the going goes tough, you don’t quit. And you don’t fold up. And you don’t go in the other direction.
If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on.
That’s something I loved growing up – the other team yelling, hyped, student section, all of that gets me going.
Recording studios are interesting; a lot of people say – and I agree – that you should have a lot of wood in a recording studio. It gets a kind of a sweeter sound.

If the beat gets to the audience, and the message touches them, you’ve got a hit.
The Lord gets his best soldiers out of the highlands of affliction.
Okay, so, sometimes in life, I can be a score-keeper – someone who keeps track of what he gives and what he gets in return. An annoying quality, to say the least, and I’m sure my wife has your sympathy, but it’s made me highly attuned to when and where credit is due.
There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in.
When someone gets a success, and we, too, have done good work and sometimes even better work than the person who has just triumphed, we wonder: ‘Why did success pass me by?’
I think I’m learning to be bolder in my career choices and be more confident in my personal life. I haven’t always felt very secure as an individual, but now I feel I certain confidence and sense of self that gets me through the day a lot better than before.
I try to greet my friends with a drink in my hand, a warm smile on my face, and great music in the background, because that’s what gets a dinner party off to a fun start.
It gets a bit boring talking about the same thing for a hundred years.
If the FBI gets the ‘back doors’ it wants, Internet services would be required to create a massive online infrastructure for law enforcement to spy on members of the public.
My father told me ‘Name your price in the beginning. If it ever gets more expensive than the price you name, get out of there.’
The more versatile you make yourself, the more work you get. Training makes you more versatile and ultimately gets you more work. Julliard taught me that.
Let the free market for wireless services and devices flourish. If the government gets out of the way, the wireless marketplace will continue to be an American success story.
Everyone gets depressed. But what do you do? You just go through it.
Art is always criticized and always an outsider gets the blame.
A director is the captain of the ship; he gets the vision of the film much before anyone else can. While I want to experiment with characters, I know a good director means I am in safe hands.
Generally speaking, I’m a jeans, T-shirt and boots man but I do own an Armani suit, which gets a regular outing. It’s nothing fancy – just a classic, well-cut suit with clean lines and beautiful tailoring. It’s timeless and you can mix and match it with anything to dress up or dress down.
Successful entrepreneurs develop products that inspire their passion. They have to. It’s that passion that gets them through the long, arduous, uncertain and frightening early days of a start-up.

The victor will be the one who gets the most voters out.
I think of it as a good opportunity to let, in particular, school kids know that this job and other interesting jobs in science and engineering are open to anyone who works hard in school and gets a good education and studies math and science. And that it’s not just for a select group of people.
Sometimes, a remix is good because it reaches a whole new generation. But when it gets too much, it’s irritating. Also, the original composer needs to be credited properly.
Money is just a way to keep score. The best people in any field are motivated by passion. That becomes more true the higher the skill level gets.
Rules about public sanitation are a simple and familiar example. Without them, a city can’t be a healthy place to live; but these rules don’t just happen. The rules for a city are different from the ones for a village, but as a village slowly gets bigger, a city may be stuck with the rules of the village.
The longer you work here, diverse it gets.
I like to work out every day. I run, walk, do machines. I’m not neurotic about food. My rule is, don’t let yourself get over a certain weight. If you gain 5lb, stop before it gets worse.
Nobody gets argued all the way into becoming a believer on the sheer basis of logic and reason. That requires a leap of faith.
One of the few advantages to not being beautiful is that one usually gets better-looking as one gets older; I am, in fact, at this very moment, gaining my looks.
I hate being clean-shaven. My daughter gets very upset if I shave and says, ‘Bring back the spikes, Dad.’
I’m not someone who gets to play The O2 and places like that, but that’s the kind of rock and roll venue. The popularity of stand-up means that some people are getting to play rock star venues.
Women who wear kimonos, when the fight, they have to keep their knees together, and when they use a sword, they have to move the sleeves otherwise it gets caught.
At a car dealership, the person who sells the car is the hero, and also gets the commission. But if the mechanics don’t service that car well, the customer won’t return.
I don’t think Africa gets as much credit as it should have on the world stage. People tend to think of us as coming from The Dark Continent, where nothing good goes on. That’s not true. A huge amount of, as I say, entrepreneurship goes on.
There’s no medals for trying. This isn’t like eighth grade where everybody gets a trophy. We are in a professional sport, and it is competitive to win. That’s what we do.
People believe that forensics these days is the answer to everything and because we believe so ardently that forensics can lead us to the criminal we’re also a bit nonplussed when someone gets in there and manipulates forensics to their advantage.
Look around at things that just aren’t getting done. Maybe there’s a project you could tackle. Maybe there’s an issue that always gets back-burnered for other priorities. Challenge yourself to take on those difficult assignments. They’re learning opportunities, and you have a chance to change something for the better.
Maybe I’m the only footballer who isn’t interested in cars. My Lancia Y gets me around.
The Law of Raspberry Jam: the wider any culture is spread, the thinner it gets.
As we mature and grow older we collect a lot of baggage, and a lot of that stuff you collect on life’s journey gets in the way of acting. My kids can imagine a character and transform in the blink of an eye. It’s so simple for kids, so complex for adults.
I mean, any time an actress gets to work with another actress, it’s like, ‘Oh, there are two of us in a movie! How are you? Let’s sit in the hair chair together!’ We’re lonely women.
Millions of guys play millions of basketball games every day of the week at the playground or the YMCA. But LeBron James gets $20 million a year because he can jam on all of those guys. We’re always going to want to see LeBron and Kobe go at it.
Finishing second in the Olympics gets you silver. Finishing second in politics gets you oblivion.
One thing that I find very unmotivating is the kind of Plan B argument: when Earth gets destroyed, you want to be somewhere else. That doesn’t work for me. We have sent robotic probes now to every place in the solar system, and this is the best one.
Be strong and follow your own convictions. You can’t assume there is a lot of time to do what you like. This is what David Bowie is afraid of: that he will die before he gets a chance to make a real strong contribution.
Every young person gets so excited about new software packages and new technology.
Usher is amazing. He’s perfection to me as a performer. He gets down.
If I’m a guy reading a newspaper, and I hear this actor who I know gets great seats at basketball games, and he’s complaining about being typecast, I think, ‘Hey man, count your blessings.’
Nobody gets a nervous breakdown or a heart attack from selling kerosene to gentle country folk from the back of a tanker in Somerset.
There’s just something about BJ Penn that gets people amped up. You don’t know what’s going to happen but something is going to happen. He might disappoint you, make you happy, make you cry or make you jump out of your chair, but he’ll do something to you.
He comes to London and gets a job in a nightclub, a gay club, where he’s known as Straight Dave by the bar staff – and no one believes he’s as straight as he claims to be. He meets the daughter of the club manager, and he has an affair with her.
What happens when the guy who runs the reactor gets out of bed wrong or decides, for some reason, that he wants to override his instruction sheet some afternoon?
I don’t understand why some people will only accept a guitar if it has an instantly recognizable guitar sound. Finding ways to use the same guitar people have been using for 50 years to make sounds that no one has heard before is truly what gets me off.
Relationship humour gets the most laughs. If I’m able to get the women laughing, men will have to laugh along because they would be scared to death.
I am for anyone that will give me lower taxes, stop all this stupid spending. Whoever promises me that gets this chicken’s vote.
I’ve definitely done things to change my behaviour. There are certain things you can’t do when you get to a certain level in what you do. When it gets to a certain time, you’re a story to somebody. It is something I have taken on board.
By the time a man gets to be presidential material, he’s been bought ten times over.
The better the actor I am acting with, the better my performance gets.
‘The Summer I Turned Pretty’ is about how, as a young woman, everyone gets that moment of being in bloom, but nobody really appreciates it.
It’s disgusting, but my father taught me when your mouth gets dry, just suck the sweat out of your own jersey. There’s no bravado to any of it; it’s just a disgusting little trick.
If your life gets off to a rough start, just know this is helping you develop depth of personality and depth of character.
For me, time is the greatest mystery of all. The fact is that we’re dreaming all the time. That’s what really gets me. We have a fathomless lake of unconsciousness just beneath our skulls.
Baseball changes through the years. It gets milder.
It’s very important for us all to understand that we are interconnected and we need to hold hands together, especially when the going gets tough.
I don’t believe in fate or destiny. I believe in various degrees of hatred, paranoia, and abandonment. However much of that gets heaped upon you doesn’t matter – it’s only a matter of how much you can take and what it does to you.
One nuclear war is going to be the last nuclear – the last war, frankly, if it really gets out of hand. And I just don’t think we ought to be prepared to accept that sort of thing.
I like to entertain the crowd. Personally I like to entertain my team-mates first, but when the crowd gets going, it is amazing.
The great thing about social movements is everybody gets to be a part of them.
I used to love stage above all, but that was when I was a single man. As I get older, the time commitment gets harder for theatre.
I was very excited about the idea that I could be an idealist, that I could be my age, the eager beaver who had hope in the justice system and the one who gets disappointed just like the audience.
People know me as Prakash Rai in Karnataka. Let it be so. But I’m known as Prakash Raj to the rest of India and abroad. Every actor worth his salt gets a name after coming to films.
A company can set off in one direction, figures out that it’s not the right way to go, and then go in an entirely new direction. Over time, the product or service improves, and the company gets better at executing and delivering.
I’ve been a Christian for a long time, and I think that Christianity gets a bad rap. I think that people’s perception of what a Christian is today is something that is close-minded and narrow, and that’s not what I am.
If you’re a singer you lose your voice. A baseball player loses his arm. A writer gets more knowledge, and if he’s good, the older he gets, the better he writes.
I wear make-up, and it gets a little bit thicker every year.
I’ve never been a big fan of subtle art. I like art that gets deep into my head and starts my brain spinning with new ideas and inspiration and my whole body is full of energy.
As soon as you’re locking doors, you’re narrowing your circle. And your circle gets smaller and smaller until it’s finally just yourself and your buddy and you’ve got no one to party with.
If you can write someone off as a bad person, then it’s easier, but when someone is also great and noble and generous and kind and funny and contradictory, it gets harder.
Make no mistake, adolescence is a war. No one gets out unscathed.
I still ponder what gets in people’s minds and souls, why they do the things they do.
I honor religion except when it gets into shedding blood.
Someone told me the smile on my face gets bigger when I play the guitar.
The worst mistake of a woman is to go to the kitchen, because then she never gets out of there.
Worrying is like a rocking chair, it gives you something to do, but it gets you nowhere.
Nobody gets out of love alive. You turn into a menace or a pest when you’ve been rejected.
Grief is like a moving river, so that’s what I mean by it’s always changing. It’s a strange thing to say because I’m at heart an optimistic person, but I would say in some ways it just gets worse. It’s just that the more time that passes, the more you miss someone.
Honestly, I want to live a calm life without being in the press. I want to be like any other American citizen who gets a speeding ticket or has an argument with his spouse… and doesn’t have the whole world know.
If you give a good performance, something that gets some feeling across to people, that’s such a rare gift. It’s underestimated at this point in history, when the music biz is inevitably turning into a kind of politics.
Humor is this great equalizer. It gets people’s defenses down, and once they’re down, you can discuss some really difficult topics.
I think I’m always subconsciously trying to write the ideal school play. Lots of parts for everybody, great parts for women – don’t forget, more girls try out than boys in the school play; everyone gets to be in the school play.
I’m for whatever gets you through the night.
I wanna do a song with Adele! Nobody gets Adele as a feature, so maybe I can. I hope she knows who I am!
I always said if it gets to a point where I really want a child, I would adopt; kids are amazing, so I’m getting the selfish stuff out of my system so when I have them I can say, ‘Go, run. I have plenty of money, go play.’
If somebody on this team actually gets to first base, I’ll stand there naked.
I try to play ‘Maneater’ by Daryl Hall and John Oates at least once when I drive somewhere. It gets me so ‘hype,’ as the kids would say.
My dad is just like everybody else’s dad. I see him as kind of a goofy guy with a great sense of humor. I try to get in a battle of wits with him, but he always gets me. I emulate him because I’ve never seen anyone work as hard as he does.
Personally, I think universities are finished. So much rubbish gets taught.
Nothing gets my journalistic juices flowing more than a seaside chalet, the mention of a private jet, or room service in St. Tropez.
I made 22 million in 14 years… with taxes, and travel and everything else, it gets blown out the window… which is why I still need to work.
I read a lot for me. But I’m not one of those people who gets ‘The New York Times’ book review and runs out and buys 10 books and is done with them and passing them out to friends, you know, two weeks later.
I chased my dreams. In the end, find what gets you excited and chase it.
I gotta be honest with you. I’m kind of jealous of the way my dad gets to talk to my mom sometimes. Where are all those old-school women you can just take your day out on? When did they stop making those angels?
I know it’s cliche to say, ‘When you do something you love you never work a day in your life.’ But it is true: When you do something you love, life gets to be a little bit easier and enjoyable. So I just want people to follow their dreams.
Personally, I feel that if you shoot off 200,000 rounds, and your lead character pulls out a pistol and never gets hit, there’s a sense of jeopardy that’s lost. It becomes a little less exciting when things don’t make sense.
I feel like everyone just gets constricted by their parents or, just, life.
Law and order are the medicine of the body politic and when the body politic gets sick, medicine must be administered.
You know I need that cockiness, the self-belief, arrogance, swagger, whatever you want to call it, I need that on the golf course to bring the best out of myself. So you know once I leave the golf course, you know that all gets left there.
One tradition I have with my friends is that when one of us gets married, we have a ton of fragrance oils and pretty bottles at the bachelorette party. Everyone puts a drop or two in a bottle for the bride and makes a wish, and the bride wears our creation on her wedding day.
I believe people have a right to know what’s going on with their information and how it’s collected, how it’s stored and who gets it.
Men get away with everything. But if a wife has an affair, she gets the blame. When husband has an affair The Other Woman’ gets the bad name.
I’m a firm believer when everybody in the community gets excited, it’s a positive.
Everywhere, I see it’s just ‘Manny, Manny, Manny.’ It kind of gets a little distracting at times.
For some reason, chewing gum for me gets my brain going.
I work hard for my stuff. And even when I work hard for my stuff, it gets taken away – which is cool. It’s alright. You can’t take my smile. And you won’t.
The upside of web-based journalism is that everybody gets a chance. The downside is that everybody gets a chance.
The sage does not hoard. The more he helps others, the more he benefits himself, The more he gives to others, the more he gets himself. The Way of Heaven does one good but never does one harm. The Way of the sage is to act but not to compete.
By letting it go it all gets done. The world is won by those who let it go. But when you try and try. The world is beyond the winning.
Whatever is said about roles drying up, I intend to keep working. Certainly now the roles couldn’t be more interesting – playing mothers, divorcees. I think it’s going to be exciting to play a mother of teenagers. The longer your life, the deeper it gets.
The dynamic of a relationship changes when one person gets sober.
The government gets it right on Head Start. We are providing opportunities for children in underserved areas where parents may not be able to afford preschool so they can begin their schooling with a running or Head Start.
Not a ‘Mad Men’ guy. Never got into it. I’m kind of a contrarian that way. If something gets too popular too fast before I can get on it, I just get really annoyed. Everybody tells me I’m an idiot; it’s supposed to be amazing. I saw some of the second season; I loved it, but I was just detached. I didn’t get into it.
Marketing is what gets you noticed, and that side of it something – this side of it, if you like, doing interviews – is the side of it that I least enjoy, and yet is 50% of the project.
When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.
We know that diversity can sometimes be more uncomfortable because things are less familiar – but it gets the best results.
Sometimes one pays most for the things one gets for nothing.
There are so many funny women in the world, and there has been for so many years, so I’ll be happy when people can just move on from that, and things can just be ‘comedies’ and not ‘female’ or ‘male,’ and everyone gets an equal opportunity.
If you think of life and death on a continuum, finding the point where it tips is complicated. It cuts across all political lines and gets to the root of our humanity. It requires faith informed by years of intimacy that you’re doing what’s right for your loved one.
Bahrainis are better off than many other Arabs. We have a welfare state, everybody gets a salary whether they have a job or not. Electricity and food are subsidized; school and healthcare are free. And we don’t differentiate between Bahrainis and foreigners. We are very proud of that.
The dumbing down of the country reflects itself on Broadway. The shows get dumber, and the public gets used to them.
I’ve always believed in writing without a collaborator, because where two people are writing the same book, each believes he gets all the worry and only half the royalties.
I tell my daughter every morning, ‘Now, what are the two most important parts of you?’ And she says, ‘My head and my heart.’ Because that’s what I’ve learned in the foxhole: What gets you through life is strength of character and strength of spirit and love.
If a farmer fills his barn with grain, he gets mice. If he leaves it empty, he gets actors.
I am a fan of all genres. My big thing is to serve the purpose of the script and what the director wants. If it’s a comedy, I want to be funny; if it’s action, I want to bring the action. If it’s drama, I want to be the catalyst for that drama. That’s the fun part; it never gets boring being an actor.
Once a president gets to the White House, the only audience that is left that really matters is history.
Since childhood, I have been a fan of Spider Man because, according to me, he has the maximum humanity; he is very human, very mortal. So he even gets hurt. He has a poor background, but when he wears the costume, he forgets all of that, all the pressures of the society on him.
As we are pursuing economic growth and economic development, we have to make sure it happens with and by and for everyone. That everyone gets opportunity.
What gets me upset about with the newer players is their lack of intensity. They tend to go through the motions a little bit. They don’t understand that you’ve got to practice the way you play.
On its self-titled debut, Happy Birthday flirts with several flavors of love, and ‘Girls FM’ is where taste gets confusing.
I realize there is a paucity of African-Americans in my position. Everywhere I go, people say, ‘Don’t mess this up. Don’t forget about us.’ You feel a tremendous responsibility, not to take the black side of things but to make sure that side gets heard, because if I don’t do it, who’s going to do it?
Negativity gets attention and gets clicks.
The romantic person instinctively sees marriage in terms of emotions, but what a couple actually gets up to together over a lifetime has much more in common with the workings of a small business. They must draw up work rosters, clean, chauffeur, cook, fix, throw away, mind, hire, fire, reconcile, and budget.
I don’t care about awards and all the attention being a ‘celebrity’ gets you. It’s just part of the job.
When the going gets tough, the tough take a nap.
Nobody gets between me and my microphone.
Basically, I’m for anything that gets you through the night – be it prayer, tranquilizers or a bottle of Jack Daniels.
When someone gets closely related to a character they play on TV, it’s very hard to break that mold and go on to do something else.
Credit is a system whereby a person who can not pay gets another person who can not pay to guarantee that he can pay.
You know, ‘Star Wars’ – even when it gets dark, it comes back to the light – it makes you feel good. I think families enjoy watching it and sharing in it.
My favorite movie is ‘The Outlaw Josey Wales’ with Clint Eastwood, a guy who gets his family killed by the bad guys then goes on a journey of revenge, eventually discovering himself – very existential.
A real patriot is the fellow who gets a parking ticket and rejoices that the system works.
When we’re playing, I really shape my body to receive the ball – even before it gets to me.
The Coast Guard has long been known as the armed service that gets more done for less.
Truth may be stretched, but cannot be broken, and always gets above falsehood, as does oil above water.
Ultimately, ‘Cinderella’ is the story of the underdog. You root for her in this fairytale; the girl who has nothing, deserves so much more, and gets it.
Music drives you. It wakes you up, it gets you pumping. And, at the end of the day, the correct tune will chill you down.
I wake up at 6 A.M. and start with yoga. I’m by no means a morning person, but I’ve trained myself to become one. My husband wakes up at 4:30 A.M., so he makes me feel like a loser. When you wake up and no one is in the bed, it kind of gets you up.
Crime is a very hard genre to feminise. If you have a female protagonist she is going to be looking after her mum when she gets older; she is going to be worried about her brother and sister; she will be making a living while bringing up kids.
You’ve got to coach worrying about your entire team: whether that gets you a championship or whether that gets you fired. I think it allows you to coach free. You’re coaching with freedom because you know you’re doing what you think is right.
I was in love with a lot of people, because I was a student of the game of comedy – Carol Burnett, Jack Benny, Red Skelton, Jackie Gleason, Don Rickles, Red Foxx, Moms Mabley – who gets no credit, Richard Pryor, Bill Cosby, George Kirby. I loved them all, and I used to just take a page out of all of them.
The supreme irony of life is that hardly anyone gets out of it alive.
I’m probably going to get in trouble for this but ‘American Dad’ is one of my favourite shows. It gets very dark in places but the jokes are there.
My word is gold, And I make sure everyone gets paid.
When the government controls a limited supply, the government gets to decide who gets the vaccines and who doesn’t. In some cases, who lives and who doesn’t.
We want all the Palestinians back in their homeland, and then there can be a fair referendum for people to choose the form of state they want. Whoever gets the majority can rule.
It’s very difficult for me to look at politics with clear eyes. I’ll read a story in the paper and the first thing that pops into my head is, what would my dad say about that? Then I try to break out of that and think, ‘What would Said say about that,’ and then it gets complicated.
When Rumsfeld gets up on television and says we have definitive intelligence that al Qaeda is working with Iraq, how is an ordinary citizen supposed to react? They won’t tell you the evidence, and when anyone asks, they say, ‘Well, you know: It’s secret.’
Amen is not the end of a prayer, it just gets us ready to go to the next level.
I think for a lot of people, friendship is a relationship that gets devalued once they move on to what people consider to be more important relationships: once you find a partner or when you have kids.
If you look at comparative figures, the last two episodes of ‘Six Wives of Henry VIII’ were watched by 4m. Graham Norton, who is very funny, gets 3m. Johnny Vaughan’s comedy, which I have never seen but people say isn’t very good, got less than half the viewers of ‘Six Wives.’
It’s so funny because if you tweet your lyrics and then you hear it in a song next week, you’re like, ‘Hey I had that same idea.’ I’m very secretive with my music. We have to send emails password protected. Because once that song gets out, you aren’t selling that thing.
When my daughter Dixie gets out of school, I take her to ballet, soccer, or karate. Or if it’s a free afternoon, we might bake together. I love our time together. There is nothing more important in my life than making her happy.
A lot of people don’t realize this, but probably the one person that gets made fun of in ‘South Park’ more than anybody is my dad. Stan’s father, Randy – my dad’s name is Randy – that’s my drawing of my dad; that’s me doing my dad’s voice. That is just my dad. Even Stan’s last name, Marsh, was my dad’s stepfather’s name.
The teacher is the one who gets the most out of the lessons, and the true teacher is the learner.
But in Delhi, people love artists. They love any musician, any actor; anybody from the art field who visits from the entertainment industry, gets an amazing response in Delhi.
Who gets the bird, the hunter or the dog?
Everybody knows a guillotine choke, and most know how to get to one. But if you can create a different way to get to that choke, then you’re going to surprise people. However, that will only happen one time, because once it gets used that one time, everyone will see that and start to train for it.
I do all my work by storyboard, so as I draw the storyboard, the world gets more and more complex, and as a result, my North, South, East, West directions kind of shift and go off base, but it seems like my staff as well as the audience, doesn’t quite realize that this has happened. Don’t tell them about it.
The horrid mystery hanging over us in this house gets into my head like liquor, and makes me wild.
The problem of telling contemporary history is that your message gets outdated.
My mom is very structured. She gets up, she does her prayers, and she eats her oatmeal with blueberries and Greek yogurt, and she has her prayer list, and she doesn’t worry too much about things.
As you get older it gets doubly hard to keep yourself fit and in shape.
I’m just thinking I’m just like a normal actor who gets scripts, and I read them, and… if I enjoy reading them, then that’s what’s exciting, then I get excited about the audition or the project itself.
There is some risk that if the wrong regulatory regime gets adopted in the U.S., then the center of innovation could move to other countries. If blockchains are the next Internet, that would be a very unfortunate development for the U.S.
Life gets weird enough without having to worry about whether you are covered for this or have to have a deductible for that, so the less stress when you are in need, the better.
I don’t always enjoy them, but when a scary movie has a really good storyline, that gets me interested.
If you properly clean a room, it gets dirtier before it gets cleaner.
There’s not really much destruction in New York besides the weather and it’s a natural force so it’s not like any destruction. But LA gets leveled (laughs). That’s my comment to Hollywood.
I think people respond to dystopian stories because they’re ways of acting out anxieties that we have and fears that we have about the future. So much media’s coming at you over the Internet, your brain gets overloaded. You don’t know what to do with it. And one thing you can do with it is read a story.
When I was a kid, the great debate was about how to defeat the Soviet Union. And we won. Now we are told that the great debate is about who gets to use which bathroom. This is a distraction from our real problems. Who cares?
The more I grow in popularity, the lonelier it gets. Because you don’t really know me. You just know this part of me. You fell in love with that. But it’s way more intricate than what meets the surface.
If a man is pictured chopping off a woman’s breast, it only gets a R rating, but if, God forbid, a man is pictured kissing a woman’s breast, it gets an X rating. Why is violence more acceptable than tenderness?
Almost everybody that’s well-known gets tagged with a nickname.
A great secret of success is to go through life as a man who never gets used up.
It doesn’t matter who gets what. It’s just a matter of doing what it takes to win.
I think that once you start writing songs, you start developing a library of ideas that you can go and take from, so it gets easier as you go.
Writing doesn’t come easily to me. It gets more and more difficult.
We’re comic. We’re all comics. We live in a comic time. And the worse it gets the more comic we are.
No matter how much we try to run away from this thirst for the answer to life, for the meaning of life, the intensity only gets stronger and stronger. We cannot escape these spiritual hungers.
I just felt it was my job to show that there is no easy way to success, and that anyone who gets even just one Top 40 hit deserves their moment in the sun. I accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative. That is the timeless thing.
Sport is a great thing to get involved with, it’s not just fitness but it also gets your competitive side out.
To clean your face thoroughly, even do a scrub, and let it sit and make sure your pores are clean before you go to club. If it sits on your face overnight, dirt just builds up. Even just laying there the whole night, stuff gets on your face, so anything else there is just really not good.
Writing careers are short. For every 100 writers, 99 never get published. Of those who do, only one in every hundred gets a career out of it, so I count myself as immensely privileged.
Anything that gets to the more emotional and dark side of music, I always enjoy.
There’s simply anger over the accountability that Yelp brings and also this feeling of powerlessness because so much power is now being put in the hands of the consumer. But the important thing that gets lost with some of these business owners who are very upset with us is it’s the whole picture that counts.
It never gets easier to tell your story. Each time you speak it, you relive it.
It is always consoling to think of suicide: in that way one gets through many a bad night.
One think that you notice about anyone that gets up on stage is that they don’t really have a lot of self-awareness. It’s kind of a trait that performers don’t have because you just kinda just have to let go and do whatever you want to do on stage.
If you spend your days doing what you love, it is impossible to fail. So I go about my days trying to bring something into the world that wasn’t in the world before. And then everyone gets furious about it. And then I sit back and say, ‘I did that!’
Every society gets the kind of criminal it deserves. What is equally true is that every community gets the kind of law enforcement it insists on.
Fatigue makes fools of us all. It robs you of your skills and your judgment, and it blinds you to creative solutions. It’s the best-conditioned athlete, not the most talented, who generally wins when the going gets tough.
The image that the public gets is whatever they perceive it to be. Everybody has an opinion, everybody has their own vision, so I don’t know what my public image is. I have no idea.
When people write comedy from neutrality, it just gets kind of silly.
Instead, I have an abundance mentality: When people are genuinely happy at the successes of others, the pie gets larger.
And finally, no matter how good the science gets, there are problems that inevitably depend on judgement, on art, on a feel for financial markets.
I don’t like sports where it’s like, you watch a guy on a motorcycle flip or something, then another guy does it, it looks exactly the same, and then at the end one guy gets higher points! It seems so arbitrary; I don’t know who’s ahead ever.
My mom’s whole side of the family, they’re all Packers fans. My mom’s a Bears fan. My stepdad is a Vikings guy. So that gets ugly. My mom sits upstairs watching the Bears game; he sits in the basement. They can’t watch it together. Football’s a violent anger in our family dynamic.
No human trait deserves less tolerance in everyday life, and gets less, than intolerance.
I don’t want to be made pacified or made comfortable. I like stuff that gets your adrenaline going.
I’ve seen up close what can happen when actors talk publicly about their relationships: their personal life gets dismantled. It’s a show business game, and it’s one game I won’t play.
I’m a diplomat by nature. I help find the middle ground. I crack a joke and use humour to help resolve potentially vicious situations quickly. It gets things in perspective and helps everyone to see that things aren’t as bad as they seem.
When a train goes through a tunnel and it gets dark, you don’t throw away the ticket and jump off. You sit still and trust the engineer.
Knowledge is like money: the more he gets, the more he craves.

The greatest progress is in the sciences that study the simplest systems. So take, say, physics – greatest progress there. But one of the reasons is that the physicists have an advantage that no other branch of sciences has. If something gets too complicated, they hand it to someone else.

Sometimes I’ll watch a music video of a great performer like Beyonce and try to follow her choreography. Yeah, maybe I look ridiculous, but dancing gets your energy up a lot better than running on a treadmill or pedaling a stationary bike.
Views are overrated; it’s light that counts. I have an apartment in Miami’s South Beach, and I get tired of looking at the ocean. Even that view gets old after a while. Sunlight streaming into a room – it never gets old.
When a place gets crowded enough to require ID’s, social collapse is not far away. It is time to go elsewhere. The best thing about space travel is that it made it possible to go elsewhere.

If you are playing on a turning wicket, toss plays an important role. The team that wins the toss gets an opportunity to play on the fresh wicket. You should always prepare the wicket as per team’s strength. But a rank turner might backfire.
‘LIFE Magazine’ decided to do a story about a young actress in Hollywood in 1954. And I made the cover. And I remember that the fellow who was doing the story on me said, ‘Listen, kid, I just want you to know, if Eisenhower gets a cold, you’re off the cover.’
When you play defense what happens is everybody pays attention and they start talking about how you’re the stopper, you can stop this guy. All of a sudden your game gets better on the offensive end and you become that versatile guard that everybody wants.
I believe people who go into politics want to do the right thing. And then they hit a big wall of re-election and the pettiness of politics. In the end, politics gets in the way of the business of people.

The Majestic Theatre in San Antone is as good as it gets.
Remind yourself that winning an argument or proving your point really gets you nowhere in the long run. Win through your actions, not your words.

There’s a great metaphor that one of my doctors uses: If a fish is swimming in a dirty tank and it gets sick, do you take it to the vet and amputate the fin? No, you clean the water. So, I cleaned up my system. By eating organic raw greens, nuts and healthy fats, I am flooding my body with enzymes, vitamins and oxygen.
Getting the best out of your best players gets the best out of the team.
Having a persona people recognize, it’s the thing that probably gets you paid the most – but it’s also the thing that virtually every actor in the world doesn’t want. ‘Cause, like, no one would believe me if I wanted to play something ultra-realistic, like a gangster or something.
The early bird gets the worm. The early worm… gets eaten.

Thanksgiving is a time when the world gets to see just how blessed and how workable the Christian system is. The emphasis is not on giving or buying, but on being thankful and expressing that appreciation to God and to one another.
No one ever gets to write their ending, write their final script.
Writing a book is very personal. It’s a very personal relationship. A book will start with something as simple as two men talking about work. That gets the fire going. Sustaining that fire is the hard work. It takes attention and empathy to hone the characters.
Gosh, all a kid has to do these days is spit straight and he gets forty-thousand dollars to sign.
It calmed me down to see that most of the time no-one gets the scene on the first take.
Perhaps the saddest irony of depression is that suicide happens when the patient gets a little better and can again function sufficiently.

What happens with ‘Mad Men,’ it’s like an Elvis Costello album; I’ll watch it, and then I immediately have to watch it again. AMC will play it back-to-back. I have a tendency to yell at it when my wife’s not around because if she catches me yelling at ‘Mad Men,’ then it gets weird.
People say: ‘Why do you want to play the straight man?’ Well, it’s because he gets to be in every scene.
A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.
Business is never so healthy as when, like a chicken, it must do a certain amount of scratching around for what it gets.
I can look into someone’s eyes and feel like I know her better, versus a phone call, where you can’t get that same type of emotion. That’s why text messaging gets you in trouble: You can’t bond, and emoticons explain only so much.
The thing that still somehow surprises me, and I have come to this realization over and over again, is this nonsense that gets peddled regarding, ‘Just work really hard, be really smart, do the right thing, and you’ll get rewarded.’ No, you don’t. You don’t get rewarded for those things in this society.
With the pandemic crushing the world, I pray for everyone’s health and well-being. I wish the world heals fast. Every morning I wake up with the hope that a vaccine gets invented soon to combat Covid-19.

People that were a little nerdy in high school would look up to me and know it gets better.
If you are not around when Africa truly gets going, it would be much like the sceptics who stood on the sidelines in the 1990s convinced that China was going nowhere. How wrong they were.

No one ever gets far unless he accomplishes the impossible at least once a day.
I don’t react and think off emotions – that gets you in a bad situation.

I just try to write what I think would really happen, and with grief and tragedy, there are these naturally occurring moments of levity and humor and absurdity. I think that’s what life is really like. Sadness gets interrupted, and happiness gets interrupted.
When it gets down to it, basketball is basketball.
In my opinion, the only way to conquer stage fright is to get up on stage and play. Every time you play another show, it gets better and better.
Nixon had some large achievements in foreign affairs. They will be remembered. But a president probably gets remembered for one thing, and Watergate will head the Nixon list, I suspect.
It was about 105 degrees in Chicago. And that’s a time when everybody gets tired. I came into the clubhouse, and everybody was sitting around, and I said, ‘Beautiful day. Let’s play two!’ And everybody looked at me like I was crazy. There were a couple of writers around, and they wrote that, and it stayed with me.
China and India are feeding their people for the first time in human history due to free markets, and the Left knows that, and it gets them nervous.

When it comes to song creation, I throw in my ideas and have it discussed with the producer. The song gets its own characteristic as new ideas are incorporated.
It’s easy to forget how little strategic thinking ever gets done in the day. Judging by the ideas generated there, our beds have more of a right to be called our offices than our offices.

If the individual, or heretic, gets hold of some essential truth, or sees some error in the system being practiced, he commits so many marginal errors himself that he is worn out before he can establish his point.
Everybody gets everything handed to them. The rich inherit it. I don’t mean just inheritance of money. I mean what people take for granted among the middle and upper classes, which is nepotism, the old-boy network.
The downfall of any leader in a sport’s team is when he gets carried away with his own ego.
Government has to be cut back like asparagus… every day… or it gets away and goes to seed. Ours did. When there’s too much of it, the flower becomes a weed.

The way I was raised, you get a new pair of sneakers when the old one gets messed up. But when I got to high school, I started dating girls and trying to fit in, and I realized everybody was collecting Jordans. When I would get my paychecks, I wouldn’t even take money. I would just trade them for sneakers.
I started here in Australia, playing a lot of roles but never the lead guy in shows here. I always tended to play the rougher guy, the criminal who gets caught or shot by the cops. Or the boyfriend from the wrong side of the tracks.
When I’m doing a movie, I eat the same thing every day. For lunch, it’s tuna salad or chicken salad and cole slaw. That’s it. For dinner it’s either veal and rice, fish and rice or steak and rice. It gets boring; boy, does it get boring.
Hope is the greatest thing for moms of autism. Hope is what gets us out of bed in the morning. I’m on a mission to tell parents that there is a way.
My husband has no desire to work with me; don’t get it twisted. He gets paid a lot of money to write giant movies. He’s not into humoring me with my projects. But, that being said, I did have the story credit on ‘Blades of Glory,’ and writing is something that I’ve always been interested in pursuing more.
Even when someone gets to looking like she should be so proud of herself, instead she’s like, ‘I could be another three pounds less; I could be a little taller and have bigger lips.’
I write a lot, and very often I write a couple of lines that are particularly revealing in some kind of way. And then as a few more lines get added and a piece gets added, eventually the song pretty much takes over and you can’t really find a way to change those things.
I don’t believe in technological determinism, especially not in biology and medicine. We have strong laws to keep doctors from monkeying around with humans that will remain in place. It’s simply not true that everything that is technologically possible gets done.
We were always reminded by our teachers that careers take off at different times. They held up Arthur Lowe as a great example of an actor who works for years and then suddenly he gets a part and everybody knows him.
It never gets old. Working with somebody like Kevin Hart is rejuvenating in a lot of ways. He’s such a pro. He’s so good.
A good song never gets old.
I don’t worry about the last shot or the next shot. I concentrate. Every shot gets a clean slate. And when a shot is over, I wipe it out absolutely. Tell a joke or something. If you worry about how you looked, how well you did, you’ll go insane.
I’m never going to be one of those guys who gets on TV and yells and screams. That’s not how I do my business. But I’m very aware of social responsibility.

Toronto deserves Rob Ford; they put him in office. Toronto deserves everything it gets.
Every country gets the circus it deserves. Spain gets bullfights. Italy the Church. America Hollywood.
I am a nice human, but I’ve also got Italian in my family. My mom’s side is Italian and my mom is a very scary human being. I get a lot of that intensity and snap straight into it from her. She’s legit terrifying. Lovely girl. Lovely mother but when she gets angry, she’s absolutely terrifying. She’s a damn monster.
I really don’t have much respect for the people who live their lives motivated by an exit strategy existing, being performed. There was no option that we were trained in that says, ‘If it gets too hard, get up and leave.’
It gets slightly daunting if you’re watching the telly and everybody’s gorgeous. It’s just so rubbish. And I’m grateful that it’s not so much anymore – it’s great to see.
Part of my problem is that I cannot dispel the myths that have somehow accumulated over the years. Somebody writes something, it’s completely off the wall, but it gets filed and repeated until everyone believes it. For instance, I’ve read that I wear a football helmet in the car.
You have to keep a strong sense of who you really are – and I have a pretty strong sense of myself. It gets me in trouble when I say this, but I don’t think of myself as a politician. I’ve always tried to be honest when communicating with people.
Every religion is true one way or another. It is true when understood metaphorically. But when it gets stuck in its own metaphors, interpreting them as facts, then you are in trouble.
One of the disadvantages of poetry over popular music is that if you write a pop song, it naturally gets into people’s heads as they listen in the car. You don’t have to memorize a Paul Simon song; it’s just in your head, and you can sing along. With a poem, you have to will yourself to memorize it.
The term ‘perjury trap’ means interviewing someone for no underlying crime and no other purpose except with the hope that the person forgets something, or another witness remembers things differently. Either way, somebody gets charged with perjury.
You can crack a joke and make a person smile but it matters a lot when that’s on screen. It can be a very nice joke but if you shoot it badly or the actor gets the timing wrong, it won’t be funny.
I would love to be in an action movie. I’ve always wanted to play the hacker guy – like, the Jewy hacker guy who just gets yelled at.
Sometimes the fool who rushes in gets the job done.
Voting is completely important. People in America think democracy is a given. I think of it as an ecosystem, and what gets in the way of it is politicians and apathy.
People often say that a bad event is a ‘blessing in disguise.’ Trust me, experience will teach you that some are unbelievably well disguised. Everyone gets fired, or decides to make a radical change at some point. Everyone suffers setbacks.
I am not this big celebrity, but it gets really crazy. You have to go through the nuts of blowing up, in a sense, and then figuring out how to live your life with that.
Yes, I was the one people credit with inventing the cell phone. Now, whenever anyone gets a dropped call, they blame me.
I’m on a team with LeBron James and Chris Bosh, and they both dress well. It gets competitive. If I don’t bring my A game, they’re going to outshine me.
In Camden, it’s just the atmosphere that gets me. It’s simple. It’s nice. It’s real. And it’s the people, too. I like to interact with them because they are normal and I am normal. People probably don’t expect an Arsenal player to come to Camden Lock and, basically, be a normal guy.
Baggio is a unique player. It should not surprise you that he gets the most press. But you must remember that it takes a full team to win.

Not a lot of people or pros in this game know how to train correctly. That’s why they don’t have a long career. Their body gets banged up. They get into a rhythm of heavy sparring and heavy work, but through that, they’re limiting movement.
The fundamental human truth underpinning ‘Ox Mountain Death Song’ is that men so very often turn into their fathers. The way that everything gets passed down.
Selecting what gets sold in smaller shops and online is a long and artful process, it takes precision and care. The people who stock the successful vintage shops are great buyers, and you pay for their skill as well as the quality level at which they sell their clothes.
I am someone who always gets up again, even if there are setbacks. I have a survivor instinct. I’m not sure where it comes from, but probably from all the little things that make you into who you are.

Forty-five years since I made my first paycheck, and I’m telling you that ‘Breaking Bad’ is as good as it gets.

Nothing is as approved as mediocrity, the majority has established it and it fixes its fangs on whatever gets beyond it either way.
Classical stuff takes a lot of rehearsal time and preparation, but with stuff that involves improvisation, you can over-rehearse it and it gets stale. You don’t want it to be too comfortable. In fact, a good sound check, a good rehearsal usually means a bad performance.
The employer generally gets the employees he deserves.
Sometimes it’s flattering when people copy you, but sometimes it gets to a breaking point.
I’m a blessing to whoever gets to really know me.
I bristle a little when the argument for film gets put into the nostalgia ghetto. Film is still the highest quality and best-looking image capture medium available. I don’t think it always will be. The digital image will get better, and it will eventually surpass the quality of the film image, but it isn’t there yet.
No horse gets anywhere until he is harnessed. No stream or gas drives anything until it is confined. No Niagara is ever turned into light and power until it is tunneled. No life ever grows great until it is focused, dedicated, disciplined.
Use your time well. Everyone gets time equally. It doesn’t matter how much money you make.
Skateboarding helps a ton with balance, precision, with air awareness… it gets your senses to be spot-on and it’s also a great way to take my mind off things.
My daughter is a real migraine sufferer; the minute she has a handful of Haribo sweets, she gets a headache. There’s a connection between what the liver can’t break down with what goes on to trigger a headache. You just have to be aware.

Music begins to atrophy when it departs too far from the dance… poetry begins to atrophy when it gets too far from music.

If it’s just screaming – and I know this sounds so ridiculous – that gets old. But sometimes when there’s literal chaos, it’s like being in a war zone, and that’s kind of exciting. You’re just running through the crowd of people chasing after you and no one knows what’s going on.
There is a major problem with reliance on placebos, like most vitamins and antioxidants. Everyone gets upset about Big Science, Big Pharma, but they love Big Placebo.

Thanksgiving just gets me all warm and tingly and all kinds of wonderful inside.
Wally Amos is the classic example of a man who gets up again and again.
There is sometimes a feeling in crime fiction that good writing gets in the way of story. I have never felt that way. All you have is language. Why write beneath yourself? It’s an act of respect for the reader as much as yourself.
Invariably something happens at a U.S. Open where the golf course gets out of control one day, they have one pin that’s out of control. It always seems to happen. But they’ve gotten better about the height of the rough.
Enthusiasm is not the same as just being excited. One gets excited about going on a roller coaster. One becomes enthusiastic about creating and building a roller coaster.

Not everybody even gets to live with their own family because they have to go to L.A. or New York or wherever to work and find a job and leave their family back home. But every day, I get to work with my family – if I want to.
The Cold War was a boring thing. Nobody gets better for it. Tremendous money is wasted. Our lives get more difficult. We look at each other as enemies. What’s good in that? In any case, I will do anything in my power in order to stop another Cold War, with the U.S. or any other country in the world.
Back off or the lizard gets it!
You can drive your own self crazy. You don’t have to be in a bad situation or be bullied every day to feel this way. I was constantly judging myself. That’s really the thing that gets you.

The tongue is the only tool that gets sharper with use.
Every little kid has always wanted to be a race car driver. This gets some of that out.
Oh yes, there’s lots of great food in America. But the fast food is about as destructive and evil as it gets. It celebrates a mentality of sloth, convenience, and a cheerful embrace of food we know is hurting us.
Whenever we create dishes, we work very carefully and ask ourselves, ‘Is there anything on the dish that really doesn’t make the dish better?’ Then we eliminate that. We try to stay very focused on really showcasing everything on the plate so nothing gets lost.

I think journalism gets measured by the quality of information it presents, not the drama or the pyrotechnics associated with us.

I would love a family. I’m at the age where the wish for a child gets stronger. But who knows.
I’m kinda secretive, and I can’t even say secretive because of my son. He’s the type, like, he doesn’t let his friends know who his mom is or his stepdad. He doesn’t like me going to his school. If he gets into trouble at school, he’s, like, dying. He’s very low-key with it. He’s always been like that since he was born.
If the Earth gets hit by an asteroid, it’s game over. It’s control-alt-delete for civilization.
Basically my whole life revolves around soccer. I don’t take many vacations. Everything just gets put on the back burner because of my training. I miss out on a lot of weddings and family functions. But at the end of the day, I’m sitting here as a world champion, and it feels pretty good.
I know that campaigns can seem small, and even silly. Trivial things become big distractions. Serious issues become sound bites. And the truth gets buried under an avalanche of money and advertising. If you’re sick of hearing me approve this message, believe me – so am I.
The jokes are great but what really matters for a comedian is his performance, his whole attitude, and the laughs that he gets between the jokes rather than on top of the jokes.

AI is a tool. The choice about how it gets deployed is ours.
My favorite singer is Canton Jones, a gospel hip-hop artist – when I’m on the bus going to a game, I listen to him in my own little world, singing and dancing; he gets me ready to play every time.
Art is like wine. It gets better with age.
With each step I take, I see that my ability to perform gets a little better. So until it starts getting worse, I’m going to keep moving forward.
I grew up doing sitcoms and theater and even playing with the Beach Boys, where you’re programmed to perform, your body gets into a rhythm and you know it has to perform.
Greed has been with human beings forever. We have a number of things in our species that you would call ‘the dark side,’ and greed is one of them. If you don’t put certain structures in place or restrictions on those parts of our being that come from that dark place, then it gets out of control.
There is one thing that gets you out of bed in the morning, and that is discipline. Because your dreams and your goals are not there waking up for you in the morning.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus is just perfect in ‘Veep.’ She gets to show off the spiky claws beneath her patrician finesse. The obvious way to play ‘Veep’ would be to make Louis-Dreyfus a folksy heroine, one with more common sense or populist heart than her enemies. But she isn’t one.
It gets very tiring when you are filming and then taken to a room to do school work. I never get any rest time. It is either work or school. Once you are an adult, you get to take a nap in between shots.
Motherhood has a very humanizing effect. Everything gets reduced to essentials.
The common question that gets asked in business is, ‘why?’ That’s a good question, but an equally valid question is, ‘why not?’
Making a film is like putting out a fire with sieve. There are so many elements, and it gets so complicated.
It is very, very difficult for a playwright to write a scene in which a young man has his first deep experience of sex with a girl whom he found immensely attractive, is fully satisfied by this event and gets up and blinds a lot of horses.
The punters know that the horse named Morality rarely gets past the post, whereas the nag named Self-interest always runs a good race.

When you get to work with a good director, an actor’s job gets reduced to half.
The old Devil gets mad when you’re trying to do good. Pray that God will move the stumbling blocks.
Capitalism does a number of things very well: it helps create an entrepreneurial spirit; it gets people motivated to come up with new ideas, and that’s a good thing.
If at first you don’t succeed, find out if the loser gets anything.
The way to get things done is not to mind who gets the credit for doing them.
When your arm gets hit, the ball is not going to go where you want it to.
My wife and I both love cooking – I am an advanced male – so we argue about who gets to rustle up dinner.
A lot of people, especially comedians, just feel like, ‘Oh, I can be charming and whatever, and have fun, and everybody is just going to like me.’ But you’ve got to work. There’s got to be a real work ethic that gets you better.
I can live a totally normal life and do everything I want to do just as long as I take my medication. My body will give me signals if it gets weak or fatigued, so I know when I need to take a break.
This country has come to feel the same when Congress is in session as when the baby gets hold of a hammer.
Salman Khan did not help me get movie offers. What rubbish! Will any producer take a risk of millions of rupees at the instance of any person? Everyone knows that the film industry is highly competitive, and one gets a job on one’s talent only and not on any recommendation.
At one point or another, everybody gets called ‘the new James Dean.’
People don’t realize it, but no one lives that rock and roll life 24-7. They think it’s hundreds of bottles of champagne flowing and private jets and money. But there’s a lot of time when you’re traveling – time to think, time to be lonely. Sometimes it gets to you.
How can it be that the homosexual movement, at one or two percent of the population, gets treated with such solicitude while the Catholic population, which is over a quarter of the country, is given the back of the hand?
Rahul Gandhi gets a copy of every programme that has been started by the Centre during Parliamentary procedure, but he has got no time to read. He has got time to go to night clubs.
I’m naturally curious, and I’ve always been driven by my curiosity. Curiosity gets people excited. Curiosity leads to new ideas, new jobs, new industries.
I’m the type of woman you might say is too good. I’ll massage a man’s feet, have dinner cooked when he gets home. But once they leave, the door is closed, and the locks are changed.
When I see out-of-shape, overweight people huffing and puffing in the gym, my eyes well up with tears of pride. I want to walk over to them, hug them, and say, ‘Good on you for getting in here. It gets better!’ You know why? Because they’re challenging themselves.
People complain about the rich-and-poor divide. It’s crazy, no doubt about it. But what gets me is that today, a billionaire or head of state on their smartphone has the same direct access to information as a homeless person has on a smartphone – or a person in Bangladesh or Papua New Guinea.
When the going gets tough, the tough get going.
Do not be afraid to ask for help. Nobody gets through college on their own.
The Monkees are like the mafia. You’re in for life. Nobody gets out.
It’s definitely a privilege to be able to do what you love to do; it’s not something that everyone gets to do, so I feel really good about that.
People ought to be slapped up side of the head, not always get what they expect. That’s why sometimes the bad guy gets away.

If I win seven tournaments in a row, I get so confident I’m in a cloud. A loss gets me eager again.
A champion is someone who gets up when he can’t.
In Chicago, you have an absence of strong family units, and that absence gets filled by gangs. You have a failure in the school system, after-school programs and other social programs to help keep kids off the streets. Amnesty International speaks to that in some way, by keeping these issues in the forefront.
I have been so great in boxing they had to create an image like Rocky, a white image on the screen, to counteract my image in the ring. America has to have its white images, no matter where it gets them. Jesus, Wonder Woman, Tarzan and Rocky.
Also, I just think of Draco and he gets me in the right mood. He just keeps getting worse and worse.
Humour is like violence. They both come to you unexpectedly, and the more unpredictable they both are, the better it gets.
I don’t mind getting punched in the face. It kind of wakes me up and gets me excited.
Well I think the media has a very powerful influence on almost anything and everything we do because the general public gets their perception of what is going on in things they don’t have immediate access to from what they get through the media.
Think of it this way: If you got a flat tire, what would you do? Change the tire? Or get out of the car and slash the other three tires? No! Get back on the road. Don’t dwell on it; don’t beat yourself up. That gets you nowhere.
‘Check Yes Or No’ is a song that I reference in ”90s Country.’ George Strait had a very crafty lyric: it tells a story then comes back around. Never gets old.
But listen, there’s a reason that ‘Baby Shark’ is the the most-watched or the second most-watched video on YouTube of all time. It’s a catchy one. It just gets you right down deep.
While consumer social like Facebook and Twitter gets the headlines, perhaps the greatest untapped potential for social networking lies in business applications.
What gets in our way is history and culture and religion and economic conditions. It is part of the hypnosis of our social conditioning.
The straight man has the best part. He gets to be in the show and see it, too.
Everything passes. Nobody gets anything for keeps. And that’s how we’ve got to live.
I have been relegated as a player, and I have suffered the feeling of failure. It is awful, and when you are part of an international outfit that gets so close, and you don’t do it, it is not a good feeling. I don’t want that again. I want to be part of a team that does something no one else has done.
No one gets angry at a mathematician or a physicist whom he or she doesn’t understand, or at someone who speaks a foreign language, but rather at someone who tampers with your own language.
Much of the time, the things we feel guilty about are not our issues. Another person behaves inappropriately or in some way violates our boundaries. We challenge the behavior, and the person gets angry and defensive. Then we feel guilty.
Netanyahu is pressured easily, gets into a panic, and loses his senses… to run a country like Israel a leader needs to have reason and judgment and nerves of steel, two traits he does not have.
The ego mind both professes its desire for love and does everything possible to repel it, or if it gets here anyway, to sabotage it. That is why dealing with issues like control, anger, and neediness is the most important work in preparing ourselves for love.
Geese always support each other. When a goose gets injured two birds always accompany it down to the ground. Just as geese do, we must support each other.
Everyone falls in love, everyone gets their heart broken.
The first man gets the oyster, the second man gets the shell.
Let’s assume for the moment that the logic behind Presidents Day is actually sound for certain presidents. Why not have a separate holiday for Lincoln and one for Washington – as we used to do, before we became so concerned with the ‘Every President Gets a Trophy’ ethos?
He did not arrive at this conclusion by the decent process of quiet, logical deduction, nor yet by the blinding flash of glorious intuition, but by the shoddy, untidy process halfway between the two by which one usually gets to know things.
I got scars on my face that tell some kind of story. I’m looking in the mirror, and I got one scar that’s really two scars – half from a baseball bat and half from playing football in college. I’ll tell you, though, after a while, your face gets so wrinkled up you can hardly see them.
On ‘EastEnders,’ if someone gets surprising news on the phone, the scene ends with them looking at their handset in amazement. No one in real life does that.
Anytime something starts to feel like a popularity contest or not about the music, I’d rather just not be involved. I’m not a big high-fiver. That really gets to people around me when we have a No. 1 or something big happen. I’m not a big, ‘Let’s go have a party about it!’
What gets lost is that the Republican Party has always been the party of civil rights and voting rights.
The business always gets in the way of basketball.
As a former prosecutor, I never presented a case in front of the grand jury that didn’t result in an indictment. Bottom line: If a prosecutor wants to indict a case, the case gets indicted.
When one gets in bed with government, one must expect the diseases it spreads.
Profound thoughts and profound experiences get revealed to be tricks that we play on ourselves, and poetry gets revealed to be just, like, some dumb words that somebody put in an interesting order.
I think we felt like we’d done so much as young kids that we didn’t know how to top ourselves. We were like, ‘Is this where it ends? Is this as good as it gets? Maybe we’re done. Throw in the towel.’
In any profession it gets to be a grind.
You tell people that all the time, ‘Jail’s the worst place ever and you don’t want to go there,’ which is true but at the same time you see it’s filled with a bunch of people like guy is drinking on a porch somewhere and he gets arrested for public intoxication. He’s going to miss work. He’s not a bad guy per se.
Vision gets the dreams started. Dreaming employs your God-given imagination to reinforce the vision. Both are part of something I believe is absolutely necessary to building the life of a champion, a winner, a person of high character who is consistently at the top of whatever game he or she is in.
Sometimes it gets a little too bubblegum for me, but what I do love about KPop videos is their attention to detail, and their choreography and dancing are always spot-on.
Many people believe the whole catastrophe is the oil we spill, but that gets diluted and eventually disarmed over time. In fact, the oil we don’t spill, the oil we collect, refine and use, produces CO2 and other gases that don’t get diluted.
Sometimes America gets tempted by the glitz and glamour.
I think that any female who gets asked if she’s a feminist… it’s silly… it’s so interesting when people ask females if they’re a feminist. Of course every female wants to be equal!
Power is what men seek and any group that gets it will abuse it.
When a man retires, his wife gets twice the husband but only half the income.
Poetry is what gets lost in translation.
People who try to tackle failure attract failure. The more you indulge in analysis, it gets tougher. So just keep making mistakes and learn.
