I have no wish to go back to being frustrated by a character. It’s really just part of being on an ongoing series. You’re constantly hoping the next episode you get, something will happen for you.

It’s about continuing to develop as a player and continuing to get better and that’s something that I’m hoping to do every single year.
I’d like to think that the notion of inspiration will transcend cultural things that are going on. There’s something classic about this movie that I’m hoping reaches kids.

The English have a special sense of humour. This I immediately experienced in the dressing room. As I walked with two plates while eating, suddenly a team-mate asked me, ‘Basti, what time is it?’ hoping I would automatically turn my hand to look at my watch. That’s quite entertaining.
We were just hoping ‘Prayin’ for Daylight’ wasn’t a complete flop. Selling a million records wasn’t even in our wildest thoughts.
I’m always hoping no one is following me around with a camera.

If people see me giving back to the military, they’ll hopefully follow suit and be good to these guys who have done so much. I’m not Lance Armstrong or Tiger Woods – I’m just an old, gray-beard mountain climber, but I’m hoping to inspire people to follow my way.
I’m just hoping my children will get enough of a foundation to remember what it was like before technology, how good that feels. Because I remember.

It all started in Michigan. My dad got a job in Michigan, so we all moved up there from St. Louis. I kind of hung out in the summer and had nothing to do, so I sort of got into acting. And then I was going to Grand Blanc High, doing the acting thing and hoping it would pan out.
My design process never starts or finishes. I am always hoping to find something through the mere act of living my daily life. I do not work from a desk and do not have an exact starting point for any collection.
Personally I’m hoping to spend the last years of my life plugged into a real life MMORPG simulation that makes me think and feel like I’m 18 again while my 90 year old body lies in a tube somewhere getting fed thru an IV. Be a great way to finish up a life.

An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.
It’s not nice to say it – I know female musicians, but not so many rappers. I can’t think of one I idolize, which is sad, but I’m hoping that will change.
I don’t have much experience, but the few times when I would go on a date with a girl – like when I was 12 – there was a lot of sharing, and a lot of talking, and a lot of asking how I am. They thought we were dating, and I was sort of hoping to meet their brothers.

I had a teammate whose motto was, ‘If I make a million dollars, I must spend a million dollars.’ I was like, ‘If I make a million dollars, I’m hoping I can keep a million dollars.’
Bitcoins are not a real investment; they are bets inside a casino. If the price goes back up, don’t be fooled. In the parlance of popping investment bubbles, it’s something called a ‘dead-cat bounce.’ People who are desperate to keep the game going rush back in, hoping to bring the price back up, but it never lasts.
I hung at the studio. Myself and James Booker and several other musicians, as kids, we just literally hung at the studio, hoping somebody would get sick or get hurt and that we’d get to sub for them.

‘You’re beautiful’ was the compliment I craved so much. I didn’t care if people called me smart or innovative – it was the number-one compliment I gave out to other women hoping it was given back to me. I heard people saying it to my best friends. It was the one I wanted to hear more than anything else.
Perceptions really do define what our realities are. What we’re hoping to do with ‘Atlanta’ is to really shatter that. To shatter it completely wide open. To go from the furthest lane of absurdity to the furthest lane of reality and make them blend.
It’s been a long time since I’ve written old-fashioned sword and sorcery; I’m hoping it’s like riding a bicycle.

You’re young and you want to play, you have got to make the most of your youth because before you know it, you’re 20, 21 or even 25 if you’re unlucky, and you’re still trialing and hoping to get a chance. And then a lot of people don’t take chances on guys who are a little bit older.
Hope is not the basis for policy. Wise policymakers analyze major issues such as immigration carefully and look at facts and probabilities instead of just hoping for the best.

I don’t know where the ideas come from, and it’s terrifying. They seem to be absolute flukes. When I was in my 20s, I’d walk around with a notebook all the time and make sure I wrote down anything that occurred to me. Now I’m just hoping that some sort of event will descend on me.
When we were kids, I remember we’d use lemon in our hair and go into the sun, hoping it would make us blond. Obviously, I have very dark hair and olive skin, and when I was a kid, I wanted to be blond, of course. It never worked.

I’m hoping that somehow with songs like ‘American Gold’ there will be some kind of justice, and people just stop being so close-minded to where they’re like, ‘Oh, it’s not race.’ It’s easy to say that when you’re not black and you haven’t experienced it.

I am hoping I get to do a variety of roles.

I’ve got no anti-America or anti-Hollywood kick, it’s just that I never wanted to go and kick my heels around L.A. for six months hoping something would happen.
With Bojack we are seeing him on this journey. I think we’re hoping for him to find a way to be more gracious and kind and positive and better to people in his life and better to himself, but I don’t know if I necessarily frame it as he was a bad person and he will become a good person.

The first part of my life, as a player, has ended but now I’m heading into an equally important part as a manager, hoping to do as well as I did on the field.

I really believe in hoping for the best and preparing for the worst.
If you’re advertising on Facebook, the work you’re doing should be made better by being on Facebook. You can’t just be repurposing old TV commercials and hoping to get traction; that’s very primitive. The question, always, is, ‘How is this idea made better by this medium?’
As an actor, as you grow into where you fit in the industry, you’re just trying to find the opportunities, hoping they grow and you get to do more.

I don’t want to be 45 competing with 20-year-olds, running to go get Botox. I want to be an expressive actor hired for the age that I am, portraying women who are my age: 40. I’m just hoping I can find some of those roles to play. Otherwise, I have to find something else.
I just want to create a space in the heartland of India. I am hoping ‘Bigg Boss’ can help me do that in a positive manner.
To be an actor, it’s really tough to find your own voice because you’re always tied to other characters and going to auditions and trying to get a job, hoping they’ll pick you. And I think it’s just so important for an actor to have something else that’s creative, something that’s creative and you’re in charge of.
I’m hoping there’ll be, if not a boom, then a big pick-up in housing because if that happens, then it will employ a lot of people, and the domino effect will go through the community, and it will help everyone.
Wherever Mantle went in the great metropolis – Danny’s Hideaway, the Latin Quarter, the ’21’ Club, the Stork Club, El Morocco, Toots Shor’s – his preferred drink was waiting when he walked through the door. Reporters waited at his locker for monosyllabic bons mots. Boys clustered by the players’ gate, hoping to touch him.
I believe now that I can win tournaments, and before I was just hoping.
I’m a polarizing person, so people get caught up in hoping I fail. And just like success, failure is a perspective.
Dying venture firms are like the walking dead. They can have years of staggering around with stakes in still active portfolio companies, hoping they’re still holding a lottery ticket that could put them back in the game. If not, they just slowly wind down.

For a long time, the Indonesian government ignored ‘The Act of Killing,’ hoping it would go away.

I don’t even know how tall I am. I’m hoping 6-4. I’m 6-4, 6-5 on a good day.
The film ‘Back to the Future’ certainly did a lot to put me where I am today, and I did not foresee that. I just was hoping the film would open successfully, the first one, but it’s gone way beyond what I think most of us have imagined.
Hoping to instill my love of learning in other children, I taught my first class at a local elementary school the year my first book, ‘Flying Fingers,’ debuted; since then, I have spoken at hundreds of schools, classrooms and conferences around the world.

The problem with taking venture capital is if you take $5m from someone, it may feel great; you may feel like they’re validating your business model. But they’re giving $5m out to 20 different people, hoping one of them will be a hit. They don’t really care if it’s you.
I’m one of those guys: I’m out there trying to punch you out and to hurt you, but as soon as I’m done, hopefully there’s nothing wrong with you; I’m hoping that you’re okay.
We cannot give our students all that they expect, whether by way of the quality of their schooling or by way of the jobs that they were hoping to get. Student frustration is a worldwide phenomenon, pushing our societies into adjusting faster than they are used to.
Faith is the substance of hope – of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. So if you can hope for it and imagine it, and keep imagining and hoping and seeing yourself driving a new car, or seeing yourself getting that job, or seeing yourself excel, seeing yourself help that person – that is faith.
In our family, mom and dad are Longhorns, our first two kids are Aggies and we’re hoping our last one is a Longhorn. It gives us family fun on Thanksgiving Day.
I wait for options, hoping that a space for a pass will appear at the last moment.
Personally, I don’t like to talk too much to the actors about the camera choices because I feel like the way I want them to perform is as if it feels very rooted in the real world and that I’m essentially stepping back and just watching and hoping they feel safe with me watching.
‘Alarm’ was about a boy that cheated on me, and when I found out, I wondered if I should give him another chance. I used to give a lot of chances to people hoping they would become better people, but this one didn’t.
Sometimes we deny being worthy of praise, hoping to generate an argument we would be pleased to lose.
I was always the kid dribbling the ball on the sidelines, hoping someone would pick me. I’d go with my older brother to the gym or park, and when I went out there, I’d pass the ball so I could get picked again.
I’m hoping to make the kind of difference in my lifetime that allows me to be remembered positively.
Guys like Andre Miller and Kevin Garnett – they’re posting up hoping a second guy will run at them so they can pass. You’re better just playing one-on-one in the post if you can.
I was hoping he would get up so I could hit him again and keep him down.
Why be boring? Have some fun. Rock shows should be like movies: I don’t go to a movie hoping it’ll change my life.
The change that I never fall into is the, ‘I’m-above-you-look-at-me-do-stuff-for-me change.’ The change that I’m hoping I get to is where I become wiser, smarter – where I put myself in situations that don’t have a huge potential for disaster.
In ‘Hope Never Dies’, Biden attempts to disguise himself with a beach look, hoping that the incongruity of it will allow him to snoop around Wilmington without being recognized. Obama, on the other hand, knows the best way to keep a low profile is to just be himself.
The joy and the pain for me is about tightroping between being a cynic and being a romantic – the tug between barely believing in anything and hoping for everything.
With the Black Lives Matter movement, a lot of the focus is on the protest and dissent. I’m hoping to dismantle the public notion – for folks outside of the community – of what Black Lives Matter means. It’s really about saying that black lives matter: that humanity is the same when you go inside people’s homes.
I’ve always saved. I believe in keeping money back for a rainy day and living within my means. I don’t buy expensive clothes; I have a 10-year-old car I’m hoping to replace when a big job comes in. I suppose when we do go on family holidays, I am quite happy to spend when we are there.
In my travels, I also noticed that kids in Thailand like spicy food, and kids in India love curry. I’m hoping to introduce my son, Hudson, to lots of veggies and spices when he’s young. I say that before he’s started on solid foods, so it could be easier in theory than practice!

‘Runaways’ was exciting because it was something brand-new and fresh, and I’m hoping to be able to bend the rules in my own way of what a Marvel superhero story can be.
Because of the ‘Twilight’ series, our company gets every speculative piece of fiction from people hoping for the next ‘Twilight,’ and so you read them, and they all kind of wash over you after awhile.

The hardest part about writing fiction is finding long stretches of time to do it: for me, this means writing mostly on Saturdays and Sundays.

Nor dread nor hope attend a dying animal; a man awaits his end dreading and hoping all.

I was hoping, actually, that being on the other side of the camera in a scary movie, see how it’s filmed and maybe you won’t be as scared next time you watch one… didn’t really work out! Because I know it’s fake, but I just get so into it.
Most writers spend their lives standing a little apart from the crowd, watching and listening and hoping to catch that tiny hint of despair, that sliver of malice, that makes them think, ‘Aha, here is the story.’
When I joined ‘Essence,’ I was a young, single mother. I was 24. I hadn’t gone to college. I wasn’t making any money at ‘Essence’ – what was it, $500 a month – and I was struggling. So I was always looking down the road, always hoping for a better, you know, tomorrow.
I left acting school really hoping that I could be on a television show of some sort, working in movies in Hollywood.
In open range fires it is about picking a spot and hoping it is the right location. At the head of the fire you have to worry about wind and humidity and a number of other factors.

There were a lot of areas we didn’t cover that I’m hoping to cover if we do some specials. One is to see more of Patsy’s home and her home life, which is just the saddest thing.

I can imagine it’s not attractive for the spectators when we play teams with 10 players around their own box, just defending and hoping for a set-piece or throw-in, anything.
Art is basically communication, and I think everyone who’s a music lover has had that experience where a record or a recording has kept you company when no one else is around. And I think that is what I’m hoping that people get out of my music.
But everyone comes to Hollywood hoping to get a role people are going to remember them for, and I get girls saying I was their first crush, or Asian guys saying Rufio was the first time they saw an Asian kid on-screen that wasn’t nerdy or stereotypical, so I was lucky the character that resonated was cool.
With a progressive issue, it was always a monkey that was chasing me down. I had a great fear of losing my hearing. In my gut, I always knew that it was going to happen. I was just hoping that it would happen when I was 50 and not when I was 18.
You just keep shining a light and hoping people will start to pay attention.
Of course, in China, there’s already plenty of people who like badminton. I’m hoping more foreigners, Americans, and other countries can get into this sport.

I spend so much time hoping things for myself.
Top Gear’ is the thing that helped shape my life with cars, my perception of cars and my obsession with cars, and I’m raring to give it a go. I’m also quite gobby and happy to get into trouble, so I’m hoping I can underpin the programme with journalistic credibility but still cause some mischief.
I always love the court fool in Shakespearean times, in Henry VIII’s time. The fool can say all kinds of stuff that the other people can’t say, so I’m hoping I might take that role.
I’m just experimenting with every different type of music you can imagine and seeing where my voice lies and what sounds best. I think when I do finally do the album it will be very eclectic – just loads of different stuff on it. That’s what I am hoping.
I remember Tim telling me that he had an idea for a musical and he said to me that he was hoping that ABBA would be writing the music, which I thought was a pretty wild idea because they were obviously known very much as pop writers.

Lazy journalists, they’ll read stuff and get a quote then ask the same question again hoping I’ll say a similar thing; it’s very tiresome.
I am hoping the four new players can bring in some energy and fresh enthusiasm because they do not have the baggage that comes from being part of a losing side.
There are always going to be times when it doesn’t flow as much as you were hoping. So of course I’m going to fail. And when I do fail I hope I fail better and better, again and again. I am happy to fail.
I’m an actor, and I want to play flawed characters, and I’m a writer that wants to write flawed characters, trying to let something out and hoping people relate through that or have fun experiencing the story.
I was hoping to attend the School of Visual Arts and had a portfolio built up.
When we uncovered the Hinkley case, there were so many other cases like it, and they’re just catching up. And we’re just starting to see the damage. I was hoping by now there would be more transparency and less defeat and cover-up. I haven’t seen much of that change.
I’ve been good at the game of basketball my whole life, so I’m hoping I can get back to that.
I’ve always had a thing about Judi Dench, Cate Blanchett, Helen Mirren, Julie Walters, and Imelda Staunton. I’m hoping to follow in their footsteps.
We’re going to make sure there is a strong price on carbon right across the country, and we’re hoping that the provinces are going to be able to do that, in a way, for themselves.
There’s something about that idea of looking up and hoping, and thinking, ‘I’m good.’ Some things, like show business, are absolutely subjective. People look at a TV show and think, ‘I could do that.’ And maybe they could do that. But they’re not.
The only real security is not in owning or possessing, not in demanding or expecting, not in hoping, even. Security in a relationship lies neither in looking back to what it was, nor forward to what it might be, but living in the present and accepting it as it is now.
We get caught in our little silos and end up working against ourselves. And I think social media culture really encourages that, because you’re really just shouting into a void hoping someone picks up on what you’re saying.
There is always a lot of competition at a big club like Manchester City, so I need to keep working hard, having patience and hoping for the best.
It was something I never expected to – I never expected the book would sell in the first place. I was hoping for a quick and merciful death at the hands of the reviewers.
I think that in Atlanta I was hoping that things would have worked out. Once I saw that things weren’t going to work out, I saw what was going to be the best situation for me to try to win an NBA championship.
Quite a few musicians came to our house. And my ma took me to hear many more, hoping to encourage in me a love of music. But she wouldn’t consent to my having music lessons, for she feared I might end up as she had done – unable to play except from paper.
If I say often enough that I’m going to be in ‘King Kong,’ I’m hoping that Peter Jackson will take the hint.

And it was only released in London last week, so when I go back to England Monday or whatever, I am expecting heaps of adulation. I’m hoping there is. If that doesn’t happen I will be disappointed.
I was hoping to workout with Kareem on a daily basis. After that first workout, I never got a chance.
I feel like guys, girls, whatever it is, you just come out hoping to make the best record. You just try to have a conversation and just create what you’ve talked about. Whatever you find to fit the beat at the time, what the person is down for, wherever the beat takes you towards.
For the moment, I am more focused on classical chess rather than rapid and blitz, as I am hoping to make my move in the classical World championship cycle.
Obviously, I’m going to be embarrassing to the kid. There’s just no way not. I just hope the kid has a really good sense of humor… My husband’s very serious – he doesn’t find me funny at all – so I’m hoping the kid is like, ‘Mom is hilarious!’ That’d be really great.
I moved up to 130 pounds hoping champions in this division were not cowards like those at 126 pounds. It looks like I was wrong.

I spend most of my time at concerts hoping for that one second that the artist looks at me, I look at the artist, and that’s when I get to say, ‘Thank you.’
Waiting and hoping are the whole of life, and as soon as a dream is realized it is destroyed.
M-theory is the unified theory Einstein was hoping to find.
Think that I started taking emceeing very serious probably from the very beginning. Because I started as a battle rapper. It was something that I was doing hoping that I could hang with my older cousin.

One day there’ll be no need for me. I’m actually hoping to put myself out of business.
I remember before the Olympics, I was asked, ‘What do you think you’re going to do in the Olympics?’ and I said, ‘I’m hoping I’m going to win a medal, and, if possible, it’s going to be a gold one.’
In the public debate, while commentators and critics have targeted immigrants with blame and bullying, our nation’s immigrants have simply kept on working, kept on contributing, and kept on hoping for a solution.
I’m going to call WWE like I call everything. Yes, I’m going to be passionate. Yes, I’m going to be excited, but at the same time, I’m hoping to get better as a storyteller, and I’m hoping to complement the people I work with who have been doing this a lot longer than I have.
Honestly, I’m not interested in gossip. Thing is, I know a lot of successful actors, and in hoping to be successful myself, I would like to think others would respect my privacy.

When you work with actors, what you’re hoping to absorb is good ways to be an actor as opposed to how to handle being famous.
I think every election is sui generis. I think it starts with where we are in the country at this time, with what Americans are thinking, feeling and hoping, and it proceeds from there. And it is always about the future.
Have you ever Googled yourself? I did, most depressing thing ever. People have websites hoping I die at 38.
And people talk about the stimulus package and the jobs that it was supposed to create, it certainly didn’t have the intended effects that everybody was hoping for or that the president and administration certainly was hoping for. So I think it’s time to lay some new solutions on the table, some new ideas.
Time is the most important thing to me – how can you do all the things you want to do with such limited time… I’m hoping science of life extension makes progress.
My grandparents left the Pale of Settlement at the border of western Russia and Eastern Europe in the early 1900s, fleeing anti-Semitism and hoping to make a better life for their children in America.
Everyone is making the same kind of shows, about underworld and things like that. So I am hoping somebody breaks this trend, else we will again enter the same grind.

So what we’re all hoping to do, us researchers, is to develop ways to not really just extend lifespan but to keep people healthier for longer. We may just have a greater impact than a single drug because these drugs could potentially treat one disease but prevent 20 others.
North Korea is really just the kid who decided he’d be ‘all out crazy,’ hoping people would be scared off by the tirades and avoid stepping up to the plate.

During the whole ‘Jeopardy’ experience, I felt like I was living a bit of a double life, I would be secretly flying out to L.A. to tape new shows, hoping that none of my coworkers would notice the absence and figure out what was going on. ‘Jeopardy’ tries very hard to keep their secrets.
When I made dog sweaters, as goofy as that was, I made this product, and people could buy it, and I got money immediately. Music was just this ethereal land of maybe, a lot of waiting and waiting.

The only thing that’s helped me get through some really hard times was just being able to write and express – it’s very cathartic for me. I’m hoping that, by writing and performing for other people, it affects them the same way.
I want a really diverse range of different people under my belt. That’s what I’m hoping to do with my career.
Popular Monster’ is the voice inside my head, hoping you will listen. It’s the story of a hero that’s been falsely accused and torn down by society. It shows what happens when you get pushed too far.
I don’t have kids, but I know that you want them to follow their dreams, while at the same time, you don’t want them to be sitting around, hoping that dream is just going to come. I’m sure that’s hard to tell your kids.

Regarding the Hall of Fame, when they decided I was going to be one of the possible candidates, when I heard that, I was so thrilled. You’re always hoping for something like that.
I am hoping to work with writers publishing books for first time, since I of course remember what that experience is like. It’s all a bit of a mystery for new authors who don’t know what to expect.
When I was writing ‘Withnail,’ I was so busted flat that I had one lightbulb that I would carry around the house with me. I mean, really. No furniture, no money, and I was hoping to be an actor, but I could never get a job.
Just strengthening that theme that America is a place of opportunity and hoping to inspire people to fulfill those opportunities, and to want more, and to want better, and to see the places we can go. So many people identify with me because of the place that I come from.

I have spent my life on the road waking in a pleasant, or not so pleasant hotel, and setting off every morning after breakfast hoping to discover something new and repeatable, something worth writing about.

I’m keeping my fingers crossed and hoping everyone loves what I do and loves what’s on screen.
I am hoping that in this year of the family we will go into our families and reconcile differences.
I didn’t have huge expectations for ‘Frampton Comes Alive!’ My previous album, ‘Frampton,’ had sold about 300,000 copies – a decent amount but not mind-blowing. There was talk at the label that maybe the live record could go gold. I was hoping we could do it, but I wasn’t sure.

I have memories of the time when I was younger and when I believed in Santa Claus, which was the best part of Christmas. Back then, I wrote to Santa every year, hoping that my mom would post the letter with a stamp to the North Pole!
I’m hoping someday that we’ll be able to start a consortium with places like Carnegie Hall to work on early childhood education. I really feel that’s the most important place to put the arts.
Honestly, I am hoping to influence young people, and Twitter’s a great way to encourage them to lend their voice to the conversation. Any time you can show young people that you support gay friends and that there are gay people in the world who are lovely, happy, singing, and in love, it opens their minds.
I look at actors like Johnny Depp, Sean Penn, and Benicio Del Toro, and they play all these different characters. I’m hoping that, in my lifetime, I’ll be able to look back and say, ‘You know what? I did all these different characters, and I enjoyed every single film I did.’

I don’t want to make any judgments, and I don’t want to preach, but I’m hoping that marriage can work: that when people do fall in love, when people do find their soul mate, everyone sticks to it. It has the potential to be a very powerful thing, marriage.
I’ve never been conscious of having any real career plan, and I do not have a wish-list of actors, directors, screenwriters, or cameramen I’m hoping to work with. Life, I feel, has a way of leading us to the right situations and people, or at least to interesting ones.
I’m going to keep thinking about topping myself every time. I can say very confidently that Alice In Chains have done that on every record. It surprises me. I don’t go in there expecting that, but I do go in there hoping for it.
There are so many scenarios here. We tried to prepare for the worst summer in 40 years and build assumptions based on that. We’re preparing for the worst, but we’re hoping for the best. And I’ve told people the end is in sight.
I’m a British intern going in. I’m hoping that John will just kind of tackle it from who this person is and what she’s about rather than trying to go in on her culture. We need to move a step forward than that.
The families of many athletes – incensed at the sports leagues and hoping to make games safer overall – are increasingly making the brains of players who die prematurely and suspiciously available for study. Some athletes are even making the bequest themselves.

If you’re dealing with personal kind of acting, you’re not going to want to open up and expose it to everybody, because that’s where the power lies, you know? It would be a little like showing your hand in poker, and then hoping you can still win.
Some of you may have been hoping that today I would speak about Lucien Bouchard’s latest economic theories. But I have decided to spare him for the time being: after all, he is a man.
So, I kind of rather was hoping that people thought it would have a nice mixture of different topics and it also takes in the fact that I’ve had two children recently.
I’m hoping that a lifetime of compromise and disappointment will read as extra depth and layers in my work.

I’ve never worried about anything in my life a fraction of the way I worry about my daughter. It’s much more than hoping people like the play you’re in, or that your outfit doesn’t look bad. It’s the real deal.
I’m hoping to do more performance-oriented roles.
Singing is more of a hobby than really something I want to do for a career. But I love musical theater, so I’m hoping I can go back to it and do a role on Broadway for a few weeks. That would be a dream come true. My dream role would be Roxie in ‘Chicago.’
People enter Web sites hoping to be led somewhere, hoping for a payoff.
As an actress, as you get older, you find yourself in a situation where you play mothers or women who are hoping to be mothers.
In the end, what’s any good reader really hoping for? That spark. That spell. That journey.

I’m still thinking and hoping there’s an opportunity for people to have better lives and that significant change can occur.
The last decade has been a little rough, so I’m hoping to start this one on the right foot.
Writers who hedge their use of unfamiliar, infrequent, or informal words with ‘I know that’s not a real word,’ hoping to distance themselves from criticism, run the risk of creating doubt where perhaps none would have naturally arisen.

It’s always this thing about being the big brother and the little brother coming to try to overtake the big brother. That always happens in families and in clubs – the young player hoping to take the old player’s position – and City are hoping to overtake United. I don’t think they’ll ever be able to, though.
When you are hoping for a call or want something different, I think you lose your edge.
Azzam is an amazing yacht. I was hoping for more wind to really see what she could do but I enjoyed the racing tremendously.

And I’m hoping that over the next 20, 50 years, whatever, the mystique of television and film and all that will diminish somewhat, and people will leave us alone to get on with our jobs.

There are so many projects that you go into hoping the story works, and here comes a new third act and that kind of thing.

I was kind of secretly hoping one of my kids would go out and make a million bucks. So when they put me in a home, at least I’ll have a window with a view.
We said we’d fly the flag without him and carry on. I didn’t give him a kiss because I still hadn’t accepted what was happening. I was hoping that some miracle was going to happen. Of course, it didn’t. I wish I had kissed him now.
For if there is a sin against life, it consists perhaps not so much in despairing of life as in hoping for another life and in eluding the implacable grandeur of this life.
It is of course very difficult to see relations between America and Iran becoming increasingly tense and knowing that it is not the people of the countries but a subset of leaders and radicals that are causing such strife. I am hoping that the spirit of the people will triumph.
Bravely going out into the world and trying, yet still deep down believing you’re ruled by your past circumstances, is like forgiving someone but still hoping they sit in something wet.
When I make a film, I am hoping to reinvent the genre a little bit. I just do it my way. I make my own little Quentin versions of them… I consider myself a student of cinema. It’s almost like I am going for my professorship in cinema, and the day I die is the day I graduate. It is a lifelong study.
I wanted to be champ of the world, but I kept hoping something would happen to Frazier. I didn’t want to fight him. Nobody wanted to fight Joe Frazier.
Rock bottom is a crisis… and everyone wants to avoid crisis. But what ‘crisis’ means literally is ‘to sift’ – like a child who goes to the beach, lifts up the sand, and watches all the sand fall away, hoping that there’s treasure left over. That’s what crisis does.
