Stan Wawrinka
Warner Bros. got into television very early, so I did a lot of television there. In the beginning, it was sort of okay to do television. But then it became this thing where movie actors didn’t do television – they certainly didn’t do commercials, because that just meant the end of your career.
Dennis Hopper
Honestly, in the beginning what I imagined was driving around the country with my samples and showing them to the stores that I thought I should be in. Road tripping that is really what I wanted to do. Then I was like, ‘Damn it. I have to work every day.’ I don’t like this, but I got used to it.

I love the movie ‘Taken,’ but the dialogue in the beginning of that movie is hilarious. They’re talking, these commando types, and there’s dialogue like, ‘Hopefully your daughter appreciates what you’re doing for her. Does she know that you’re doing it?’ What guys talk like this?

You know, ‘Peepshow,’ in retrospect that seems like a good fit for me, but in the beginning, I’m sure you remember, nobody was sure if the show was going to last. Everybody was like, ‘What are you doing? You can’t sing, and you can’t dance. What are you doing in this show?’

I think the whole response to our art being so positive is that it rings true and it feels a unique thing and I feel that was the thing that we strive for in the beginning was to not conform to any preconceived notions of what we should be doing.
I know how to finance something. It’s easier today because, as you’re more successful, everybody wants to do deals with you. But even in the beginning, when I took Landry’s public, I owned 100 percent of it. I never had investors or anything. I was just always able to find a way to do it.

Bob Schieffer
It’s 2009, things change. I’m a creature of habit, so in the beginning I wanted it to be as much like the original as possible, but that’s not reality. And reality is, this is a new generation, and people want to see ‘Witch Mountain’ again.

Karan Soni

Margaret Keane
There are very few industries that I know of – I mean, there are companies in fashion, in cosmetics. They’re developing AI models and training them in the cloud in the beginning.

I never set out in the beginning of my career just to play female roles.
They started to try and keep us off the air in the beginning.

Rana Daggubati
In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.
Terry Pratchett
We saw David Carradine, who is not of Asian descent, playing an Asian man on the show ‘Kung Fu’ that originally should have, and was developed for, Bruce Lee. To have that be the legacy that quote-unquote inspired ‘Shang-Chi’ in the beginning obviously doesn’t put us off to a great start.

In the beginning of the year 1665, I found the method of approximating series and the rule for reducing any dignity of any binomial into such a series.

Ed Kowalczyk
In the beginning, I was doing whatever came my way. But that’s how life is. I am not sitting around calling a ‘daddy’ to make a movie for me.

In the beginning, before the creation of Heaven and Earth, God made the angels; free intelligences and free wills; out of His love He made them, that they might be eternally happy.

Sabine Baring-Gould
In the beginning Remo is a very New York street cop who changes and is changed as he moves along.
Fred Ward
In the beginning, I was a stay-at-home dad. So I could actually focus on being a rapper. I could write. I could come up with ideas.

J. C. Ryle
Sports broadcasting is very open now. In the beginning you did encounter more traditional attitudes and get comments. But I’m talking about 12 years ago.
Kirsty Gallacher
In the beginning, I was very passionate about it, I loved it. It wasn’t until I actually reached the top that I became despondent. I felt like I was betrayed, betrayed by my family, my school. I felt very angry about the whole thing. You spend 12 hours a day, dancing, and then what?
Sergei Polunin
In the beginning, we had a great deal of freedom, and Jerry wrote completely out of his imagination – very, very freely. We even had no editorial supervision to speak of, because they were in such a rush to get the thing in before deadline. But later on we were restricted.

Elie Wiesel
Most challenging, mainly for me, learning how to bump, learning to trust your body and trust somebody else with your body, when we’re learning how to do bodyslams and suplexes and figuring out how to kick somebody right while making sure to protect each other. In the beginning, for me, a forward roll was pretty challenging.

Steve Buscemi
I didn’t want to be a goalkeeper in the beginning because my dad and uncle used to play in goal and I knew how much you suffer!
Willy Caballero

Bryan Adams
America is not nearly done. We’re only in the beginning. Who knows who we will be? Who knows… what color we will be? It is all something that, maybe, our descendants – if they survive that long – will see.

Dan Castellaneta
What was really wonderful about the ‘Doubtfire’ shoot is that we had this really long rehearsal period in the beginning. That was a great time to get to know each other. We got to know each other and to create the family vibe. So we really didn’t have to force it.
Lisa Jakub
You feel like people are looking at you like, ‘I wanted the old Kathleen. Where’s the old Kathleen?’ I felt that way in the beginning of Le Tigre. I felt people were like, ‘You’re not angry enough anymore.’ People still ask me that. ‘Are you still angry?’ I’m like, ‘About what? About that question? Yes.’
Kathleen Hanna
I listened to a lot of Amy Winehouse: her albums ‘Frank’ and ‘Back to Black’. She was such an incredible artist. She was just so raw and had her unique sound; she paired jazz with pop and was so soulful at the same time. So I pulled from her a lot in the beginning.
I like the feeling of making things. It’s very very rewarding. And filmmaking is that type of experience, where you’re forced to collaborate with so many people. You’re involved in the beginning to end, you’re involved with so many elements, and when it’s done, you’re like, ‘I made this movie.’
Chris Evans
All musicians need a day job in the beginning. Unless they still live with their parents, I guess. I’m just lucky that my day job is simply another form of art.

Tony Gilroy
In the beginning, when I was trying to write, I couldn’t turn off the outside world to the extent that I can now.

Creation stories, so central in the religions of the Middle East, play a surprisingly marginal part in Greek myth. The Greeks had nothing to set alongside the resounding ‘In the beginning’ in the book of Genesis, where one eternal God creates the universe out of nothing.
Neil MacGregor
My writing has changed a lot. From 16 to 19, I’ve changed a lot. My kind of writing in the beginning was very observational; now it’s grown very personal for me. I use it as a diary in many ways.
Oliver Sim
When I started making movies, I was pretty young, and at the time I felt like there needed to be more confrontation in cinema – or I needed to make something more disruptive – so in the beginning, those movies were me wanting to play with the rules.

Lawrence Halprin
It wasn’t the muso thing that got me recognition in the beginning. It was doing ‘Wild Thing.’
Jeff Beck
I’m very quiet. In the beginning, my brother would play the piano, and I would sing, because that’s what my mom and dad did. And then along the way, somebody teased me for even thinking that I could get up there. That stayed with me, and I became very shy.
Tyka Nelson
I have always been interested in design, but in the beginning I didn’t set out to make jewelry specifically.
Paloma Picasso
The chemistry of love is something which is extremely extremely unbelievable. This is something we have planned for more than two years, so I hope that we are going to start in the beginning of next year.

All early entrepreneurs fall prey to the same problem, which is everyone believes that if you are super intense in the beginning, work long hours, that you can create something quickly and that entrepreneurship is almost something that happens overnight.
Jennifer Hyman
When you’re rehearsing, you get really inspired in the beginning, but then it becomes repetitious and you lose the magic. How do you get the magic again? The magic happens when you’re not pushing it.

A lot of the biking sequences in the beginning, like going down the steps and over the ramp, I of course didn’t do any of that stuff. I wish I could have but I didn’t.

I wanted to be so many different things in the beginning – I wanted to be a rocker, I wanted to be a great songwriter, I wanted to be a great melodic singer.
Thomas Rhett
I’m not sure about the selling part, but I’ve always found that the things I’ve worn on tour have moved over to what people wear every day. Sometimes the things I wore in the beginning before I had money were things I put together.
Steven Tyler
I think that’s why I was able to do well in the beginning: because it was such a foreign thing. People frame it in a negative way, like, ‘For Asian-Americans there’s no one out there, so that must be really bad for you.’ No, I benefited from it.
In the beginning, it was quite challenging because I had zero acting experience, and delivering dialogues was the most difficult thing for me to do. But after I began to act, I grew as an artiste.
Atif Aslam
It’s just kind of ironic with how I came into the NBA with all the expectations. You would’ve thought coming in the way I did that my career would last long. You’d think I’d have my more peak years in the beginning or middle. Mine just came a little later.
Shaun Livingston
In the beginning, believe it or not, me and Acid Betty were good friends.
Chi Chi DeVayne
In the beginning of college I wanted to be an English major, but then I became interested in international relations.
Nick McDonell
In the beginning of my all my camps, I do just boxing.

There are a lot of perks when you’re an actor. Free food at work was my second favorite in the beginning, but my first was the weird stuff. Like seeing celebrities in no makeup and finding out what they ate.
Judy Greer
I made a few mistakes in the beginning of my career. I didn’t have anybody to guide me. I didn’t have a secretary. I didn’t call up directors, or meet people asking for roles.

Akira Toriyama

Ben Carson
Heartless retouching should not be the chosen tool to represent women in the beginning of this century.
Peter Lindbergh
In the beginning, it was meant to be like a faceless art piece. Then I did the first record and it received enough notice to satisfy my needs. I questioned the procedure out of fear. The Silver Jews was never meant to be recreated live.
David Berman
I didn’t understand in the beginning that the editor didn’t want me to know the author. I’d make an effort to meet the author, but it would end up being a disaster because then I had the author telling me what I should be doing.
Peter Sis
That’s what I signed up for in the beginning. I was 170 pounds; 155 was forced on me.
Tony Ferguson
I learned a lot from watching actors like Michelle Gomez and Richard Coyle and Miranda Otto, but particularly in the beginning Michelle because I’ve never seen someone so fearlessly wild.
Jaz Sinclair
I didn’t take music seriously in the beginning. It just kind of a hobby to me. It was something that I love doing for fun.
In the beginning, my equipment, I would rent them from teamster-types, really. I don’t know where they got the cameras – I think from the TV stations. But I don’t know if they asked the TV stations.
John Waters
In the beginning, we might have been focused on totally just music and being famous, just wanting to have fame and make hot music, but as we got older, we had to understand that this is a business and that our moves need to be calculated.
If you don’t have heroes in the beginning, you don’t grow.

Henri Matisse
Lionel Messi, getting to meet him, you’re a little star-struck in the beginning, of course.

Words have power. Words created this universe… Everything started with the Word. The Bible says, ‘In the beginning was the word.’ In the same way, your words have creative power.

To do that I try and keep myself in pretty good shape physically and I try to lead my life in such a way that I’ll be able to be as strong at the end of the movie as I am in the beginning.
John Frankenheimer
I liked wearing the ’50s wardrobe. It was hard in the beginning. The first shows I wore regular young girl dresses. Then a little later I got to wear the poodle skirts and such.
Erin Moran
In the beginning, I was frightened to death of going solo. Especially when doing live shows, I was so used to my brothers being next to me. It felt like the crowd was just looking at me, waiting for me to either mess up or prove myself.
Charlie Wilson
In the beginning of my career, I loved the fear because if I was afraid, then I was going to get the rush. Your endorphins get released when you’re afraid. So whenever I would surf, I would be looking for the rush.
Garrett McNamara
In the beginning was the Word. Man acts it out. He is the act, not the actor.

In the beginning, we were a real good, straight rock ‘n’ roll band. We were writing quality tunes.

‘Liv and Maddie’ didn’t start out as a twin show. I actually played a different character in the beginning, and it was neither of the twins.
Dove Cameron
I’ve been fortunate, I guess: I’ve gotten to play a lot of very diverse roles for quite a long time. But in the beginning, I was thinking, ‘I’m not gonna do certain characters. I will be willing to say no and live on a couch.’ And I was really happy.
Forest Whitaker
In the beginning, I was so inspired by the music. I had the option to make something modern with classic undertones, but I wanted to make something that was exactly like that old sound.
Leon Bridges
It’s true in the beginning I started playing villains, and I think that’s pretty clear, because if you don’t conventionally look a certain way and you’ve got a certain kind of presence when you’re young, then what’s available to you is character roles, and the best character roles when you’re young tend to be villains.
Willem Dafoe
Compromise is not such ignoble and deplorable a thing as we generally think. It is rather an indispensable factor in the political strategy. Any nation that rises against the oppressors is bound to fail in the beginning and to gain partial reforms during the medieval period of its struggle through compromises.
Bhagat Singh
In the beginning, I wanted to be successful. I wanted to make and have hit records.
George Strait
In the beginning, because of the Pavement thing, we were able to sell a certain amount of records. We were able to sell not such a great amount of records, but enough to live on. So there was no incentive to do what didn’t come naturally.
David Berman
We were pretty crappy in the beginning. We really didn’t sound that great.
Charlotte Caffey
In the beginning when I sat next to Tom Brokaw on the ‘Today’ show, the stories I was interested in were those having to do with women and children and learning and health. In those days, 25 to 30 years ago, that was called soft news, and not in a nice way.
Jane Pauley
You always think you’re better than you are in the beginning.
Todd Barry
I was born in the Eighties, and at that time the idea of having a mixed-race child wasn’t welcome. Then I was also an unusual mix nobody was used to seeing. So people weren’t very accepting of me in the beginning, but later that changed.
Masaba Gupta
In a pre-YouTube world, and in the beginning of the YouTube world, it was more personality-based and centered around very simple content.
Benny Fine
In the beginning, my mother humored me when I told her I wanted to be a reporter.
Jessica Savitch
In the beginning there was nothing and God said ‘Let there be light’, and there was still nothing but everybody could see it.
Dave Thomas
After a while, Godard was going to do ‘A Woman is a Woman’ with Sami Frey and another actress in the leading lady part but they couldn’t do it and so he had to find somebody else. I was not supposed to play the lead in it in the beginning – I originally had one of the smaller parts.
Anna Karina
In the beginning, I tried to be a more cosmopolitan writer, but I realized that I was a country boy, and I had to deal with things I knew about and where I came from.
Ernest Gaines
In the beginning of your mixed martial arts career, you’re not making good money.
Demetrious Johnson
Specifically, we talked about making the character of the prince not so charming, at least in the beginning, and I’m playing around with the preconceptions attached to a character. That’s really what intrigued me as well because I thought it would be fun to do it.
Hugh Dancy
In the beginning, I would find a character I understood. That was my focus. Not now – but you basically get offered the exact same thing you just did. Which I find hilarious. I did ‘The Vow,’ and then I had every love story you can imagine thrown at me. And now I’m getting offers for comedies.
Channing Tatum
In the beginning, New York and I had kind of a love-hate relationship. It seemed so abrasive compared to Europe. But the transformation here in recent years is really something. I don’t think I would have seen as much change if I’d lived in any other city in the world.
Shalom Harlow
In the beginning, there was silence. And out of the silence came the sound. The sound is not here.
Daniel Barenboim
I made a sort-of living in the beginning of my acting career as a reporter. I think my very first job was ‘Early Edition’ as reporter no. 1, and for ‘Light It Up,’ I was reporter no. 2.
Amy Landecker
I don’t know if it’s a romantic comedy but I’m in the beginning of the first of the season of ‘The West Wing.’ We shot it last year. I don’t know. If anyone asks me to be in one, I’ll jump on it.
Jason Isaacs
The shock of any trauma, I think changes your life. It’s more acute in the beginning and after a little time you settle back to what you were. However it leaves an indelible mark on your psyche.
Alex Lifeson
In the beginning, Adam was instructed to earn the bread by the sweat of his brow – not Eve. Contrary to conventional wisdom, a mother’s place is in the home!
Ezra Taft Benson
In the beginning of the war, Southern women wanted their men to leave – in droves, and as quickly as possible. They were the Confederate Army’s most persuasive and effective recruitment officers, shaming anyone who shirked his duty to fight.
Karen Abbott
The idea of meeting my former girlfriend’s current boyfriend seemed insane and absolutely bizarre to me in the beginning. But I am glad I gave it a shot!
Harshvardhan Rane
The challenge for what everybody’s seeing in deep learning – the software richness is really quite high. In training, you have to wait days and weeks before it comes back to tell you whether your model works or not. And in the beginning, they all don’t work.
Jensen Huang
I started like many young Russian people in the beginning of perestroika when it seemed that everything was possible.
Roustam Tariko
I don’t feel the same pressure to be perfect up there that I did in the beginning.
Nikki Glaser
We saw the integration of the female pilots in the Navy, in combat roles, and the resistance there in the beginning.
Brandon Webb
In the beginning of our career, we want to make an identity, and I am happy that people think I have good comic timing, and they are casting me in films.
Kartik Aaryan
I didn’t really like snowboarding in the beginning. Now, I just love it. I’m in love with it.
Chloe Kim
In the beginning, I was very insecure. I hated how I looked in pictures.
The Weeknd
I never like photos of myself in the beginning. I live with them for three months, put them in a drawer, take them out and look again. I hate the way I look, but of course it’s really not that bad.
Marianne Faithfull
In the beginning, somebody told me there was a record in the cruiserweight division where Evander Holyfield became the champion. I thought about that, and I told my team, ‘Let’s make our own history, our own record, to beat Holyfield’s record.’
Oleksandr Usyk
When I read a script or I see a character, I don’t necessarily see the arc of her, that by the end she is this person, she’s different from she was in the beginning. I guess it’s more a subconscious understanding of that arc.
Shailene Woodley
In the beginning I used to say, ‘I’m healthy, my cholesterol’s fine, I don’t have high blood pressure, I don’t have diabetes.’ By telling people that you see a doctor, and telling people that you’re healthy, it’s perpetuating the abuse against bigger bodies and the mindset that we owe it to people to be healthy.
Tess Holliday
The main thing for me is I really like strong endings. If there’s a strong ending, you can take more time in the beginning, your first act can be really quite different.
Tony Gilroy
In the case of ‘Ice,’ in the beginning when I got the script, felt like a show that was searching for what it is, and what they knew or what felt palpable to me was that this character, Freddy Green, was going to have the biggest journey.
Jeremy Sisto
I’m very disappointed in Obama. I was very much in support of him in the beginning, but I cannot support war. I cannot support droning. I cannot support capitulating to the banks.
Alice Walker
Of course, in the beginning it’s always difficult. It’s a new country, new teammates, so you need to find the relationship with all the players. Obviously it takes time.
Marcus Berg
The need for strong partners and employees persists throughout the life of a company, but it is especially important in the beginning.
Clara Shih
In the beginning of the Great War, the emotions of Europe ran riot in a most horrible manner, first among the so-called ‘living,’ and then among the killed when they awoke.
Max Heindel
You won’t really get a lot of the mainstream, lovey-dovey side because that wasn’t a part of my life in the beginning.
Young Buck
I made theater very important in the beginning of my career.
Marcello Mastroianni
In the beginning, we’d walk off stage and burst into tears, ’cause we were getting bottles thrown at us, and boys were spitting all over us.
Gina Schock
The world that I would want to get into would be acting. In the beginning, I would do stuff as myself if I had the opportunity to host events – host, like, a talk show. Something like that, I think, would be super amazing.
Gus Kenworthy
What I’m making music for now is more similar to what I was doing in the beginning. In those days it was all about doing music so when people heard it in a club it would take their minds of their worries. I got more artistic but now I’ve gone back to basics.
Curtis Jones
I had a brother who was bullying me to write something because we wanted to make our own movies. So it was out of necessity in the beginning. Over time, I began to see that I could create the roles I wanted to play rather than just waiting around.
Joel Edgerton
In the beginning, God placed a woman in a companion role with the priesthood.
Ezra Taft Benson
In the beginning, though, I have to admit that I did have a chip on my shoulder. I did want to prove everyone wrong. But after I went through the process and came out the other side, it wasn’t about anyone else.
Billy Corgan
A lot of people have a cough that doesn’t go away, or go up and down stairs and get shortness of breath, and they don’t think about COPD. They could have a problem, though, and catching it in the beginning stages is crucial.
Patty Loveless
I think I have a sense right in the beginning of how big an idea it is and how much room it needs, and, almost more importantly, how long it would sustain anybody’s interest.
Lydia Davis
My experience of fiction was, in the beginning, so exploratory. I wasn’t sitting down to a desk at Yaddo with a month, thinking I have to have a draft of a novel.
Bill Clegg
Hitler was good in the beginning, but he went too far.
Marge Schott
In the beginning, editorial always inspired my beauty looks, but we’re living in a primarily digital age, and Instagram is a great source – as is Pinterest – to find brilliant ideas that spark new ideas in me and the talented makeup artists I work with.
Tommy Dorfman
I like to open for a band as it brings on sort of a challenge and it makes things more interesting. It reminds me of when we were just starting out because we would open for other bands in the beginning.
Kelly Jones
In the beginning it was definitely Drake, Kanye and Lil Wayne – those were my influences. But having worked with all those three individually, I’m now appreciating my own individuality.
Civilization grew in the beginning from the minute that we had communication – particularly communication by sea that enabled people to get inspiration and ideas from each other and to exchange basic raw materials.
Thor Heyerdahl
We are so grateful we are given the chance and the freedom to do what we want, what we want to create, what’s on our mind, and that’s honestly what we asked for in the beginning of our career.
Dinah Jane
In the beginning, I didn’t dance that much and stuff.
Namie Amuro
