Husbands and fathers, get on your knees before God and accept your place as head of your household. You are the prophet from God to your family.

We all have a natural instinct to protect children from harm. It’s never fun to see a child hurt, even if it’s just a scraped knee.

Darell Hammond
Down on your knees, and thank heaven, fasting, for a good man’s love.

Akkineni Nagarjuna
I only have so much ring time that my body can endure. I’ve had four surgeries on my knees, arthritis in my neck, separated my shoulders, broken my nose.

I’ve talked to a number of actors who have gained weight for roles, and just the sheer physical toll it puts on one’s knees and shoulders – no one wants to do it again. I’m 57 and I don’t think I’m going to take on any job or go on vacation again and see to it that I can gain 30 pounds.
Tom Hanks
I’ve never owned an actual trail-running shoe myself, but maybe I should. My favorite paths are fraught with peril, much of it skulking at shoelace level. A rock, a root, an errant pine cone. Wham, and you’re down, choking in dust and picking pebbles from wounds in your forearms and knees.
Don Kardong
I sit down in a chair, and I take off my two heavy little prosthetic legs and I crawl on my knees to the edge of the pool and I just jumped in, and I just instantly loved it.

Nicole Scherzinger
I exercise in the gym about three times a week. I vary the workout every time, but I’ll always do some type of circuit work with weights. It gets my heart rate up without putting too much stress on my knees, which for some reason seem to be older than the rest of my body.
Edwin Catmull

I remember power-sliding on my knees the first time I got a job.

Marie Windsor
I don’t swing with my knees. I swing with my hands.
Asdrubal Cabrera

Sangram Singh
When we started in the late 70s, I don’t think it’s unfair to say Glasgow was on its knees. It was the end of the industrial age and it really was looking to find itself. It had to reinvent itself. And Simple Minds have had to constantly reinvent themselves. So has Glasgow.
Jim Kerr
Back then, a half-a-century ago, the situation was totally different. Economically, we were practically on our knees, and politically, we were still excluded from the community of nations. Today, in this respect, we have a totally different and much more stable basis.

More women have come out of the changing rooms slagging off their knees than any other body part. I recently developed a complex about my own knees, so I totally get it.

George H. W. Bush
I’m a firm believer in the connection between the body and the mind: feed one, feed both. I like to run, but only short distances, and fast. I’m no good at long distance. More than six miles, and the knees start to go.
Matt Haig
If you have beautiful knees, show your knees. I’m not a puritan. I love skin.
Francisco Costa

James Larkin
Working in the shop has taught me how utterly ridiculous the female fear of knees is. It’s a bloody knee. It’s bone. We can’t control our knees, our knees are not our fault. We cannot let this continue, we have to abandon this ridiculous new obsession and set the knee free.
Dawn O’Porter
How do you know someone is a grandparent? They’ve got milk stains on every shirt from burping babies. Their pants are worn out at the knees from crawling around giving pony rides. They have 2,842 pictures of the grandkids on their smart phone and not one photo of their spouse.

John Harvey Kellogg
I knew all of the childhood prayers I uttered on my knees at the side of my bed. Many years of Sunday-school attendance had etched certain Psalms and rote prayers into the fibers of my brain.

Iyanla Vanzant
Immortality: A toy which people cry for, And on their knees apply for, Dispute, contend and lie for, And if allowed Would be right proud Eternally to die for.
Ambrose Bierce
My mum taught me that bodies are bodies, and they come in all shapes and sizes – we should be free about that. My legs are a bit dangly, and my knees point inwards. Everyone has insecurities, but I try not to focus on them. It’s important to be confident with what you’ve got.
Eliza Doolittle
I have a photograph at home of Fred Astaire from the knees down with his feet crossed. It’s kind of inspiring because it reminds me his feet were bleeding at the end of rehearsals. Yet when you watch him, all you see is freedom. It’s a reminder of what the job is about in general, not just being in musicals.
Alan Rickman
I learned more of how to appreciate what I had then – my family, my kids, the talent that God gives you – because He can take it away at any time. He took it away from Brian through death. He took it away from me through my knees.
Gale Sayers
Old age is a wonderful time of life. At least, that’s what everyone tells you. But let me tell you: it is not true. What’s true is that your hips, knees and ankles gradually give up on you – everything is quite dreadful, really. And it was a terrible thing to have told us because we believed it.
Debbie Reynolds
I’ve had 36 orthopedic operations, have two fused ankles, my knees, hands and wrists don’t work, I now have a fused spine, other than that, everything is great.

St. Jerome
A conversation does not have to be scintillating in order to be memorable. I once met a president of the United States, and his second sentence to me was about knees.
Dick Cavett
I have self-doubt. I have insecurity. I have fear of failure. I have nights when I show up at the arena and I’m like, ‘My back hurts, my feet hurt, my knees hurt. I don’t have it. I just want to chill.’ We all have self-doubt. You don’t deny it, but you also don’t capitulate to it. You embrace it.
Kobe Bryant
I feel my knees changing – like, why do I have this pain when I’m running on the treadmill? What’s going on with my lower back when I wake up in the morning? I just feel changes. And I’m definitely fearful in a very vain manner about my body ageing.
Jessica Biel
Ankles are nearly always neat and good-looking, but knees are nearly always not.

William Petersen
I don’t worry about whether I’m making a masterpiece, because I know that if you get just one of those in a lifetime, you should get down on your knees and say ‘Thank you!’
Malcolm McDowell
Every country we conquer feeds us. And these are just a few of the good things we’ll have when this war is over. Slaves working for us everywhere while we sit back with a fork in our hands and a whip on our knees.
Curt Siodmak
I love writing novels, but I’m very fearful about writing something from absolute scratch. I kind of don’t have the time to write something from scratch. I think when my knees completely give out, and I can’t make films anymore, I would try to write novels from scratch.
Whit Stillman
I invented this wonderful death scene for Javert of going down on my knees and then leaning back like a limbo dancer to make it look as if I was falling off a bridge.

Roger Allam
Have you noticed that whatever sport you’re trying to learn, some earnest person is always telling you to keep your knees bent?

Twerking is just limited to a certain, specific dance where it’s hand on the knees and you’re busting open. With bounce music, we do a whole lot more and everyone is so unique in the way that they move and their personality.
Big Freedia
I was very skinny. You know when your knees don’t even look like they’re attached to your body? Kids at school called me ‘Snap,’ like my legs were about to snap because they were so thin.
Lauren Cohan
I tend to curve my back or pop my hip on the side. I always like to turn a little bit profile, and if you put one of your knees in, it also gives the illusion of more curves. There are a lot of tricks – you learn on the job sometimes.
Sara Sampaio
Some people have knees, ankles. It’s always been my back. That’s been one thing I’ve always had to be conscious about strengthening and being in rehab. Pretty much I’ve always rehabbed it.

I remember the moment I first became aware of aging. I was 30. I looked down at my knees, and the skin above them had become a little loose. And I thought, ‘And so it begins!’

It’s really important as a quarterback to have stability in all your joints but especially in the lower body, like the ankles, knees, and hips.
Sam Darnold
As our knees and hips and eyesight deteriorate, we become more dependable, less impulsive, kinder, and less moody. Psychologists call this the maturity principle. My own life experience fits this principle to a T.
Angela Duckworth
They say that every snowflake is different. If that were true, how could the world go on? How could we ever get up off our knees? How could we ever recover from the wonder of it?
Jeanette Winterson
I enjoyed dressing in Indian clothes. I loved those long, single-piece garments that come down to the knees and the white pyjamas you wear underneath.

Helen Mirren

Andrei Arlovski
I’ve been really, really fortunate to have a mother that has spent many, many long hours on her knees praying for me. And I guarantee you, I would almost bet everything I have that that has saved me more often than not. So it sustains me.
Jay DeMarcus
My big mission in life is to get guys out of those big, baggy board shorts down to their knees. It always looks like they’re trying to hide something, like skinny legs.
Michael Bastian
When people spot Fallon in public, they do not shriek or drool or go wobbly in the knees. It’s a different look entirely. A tilt of the head, mouth agape, eyebrows rolled like you do when you see a puppy.
Jeanne Marie Laskas
I played soccer my whole life. I’m kind of a heavier person, and whenever you kick and punt, no matter how limited an activity it is, my brain and shoulders are going to be OK because I didn’t play a tough guy position, but my knees took a lot of wear and tear from the kicking.
Pat McAfee
I have a stationary bike that I do twice a week, but I’m not really serious about it. I just do it until I get tired. And then I have a step thing that I really hate. It’s hard on your knees. I have a treadmill that keeps getting stuck. It’s nice to have equipment around, though, because you can sit on it anytime.
Liz Torres
There’s a photograph of me in the transplant unit where I have a vomit bucket under one arm, I have my laptop on my knees, and I’m crying, not because, you know, I’m about to have a bone marrow transplant, but because I’ve missed a deadline!
Suleika Jaouad
They all in general had putrid gums, the spots and lassitude, with weakness of their knees.
James Lind
Financial globalisation and Islamist globalisation are helping each other out. Those two ideologies want to bring France to its knees.
Marine Le Pen
I bounce my knees, but I do not have restless leg syndrome. I did an interview, I don’t even know who it was with, and they said I told them I have restless leg syndrome and it distracts me from my work. I do not have any syndrome.
Taylor Lautner
I don’t want to sound like a Hallmark card, but to be able to wake up each day with food and shelter, that alone is good. Forget aging and the fact that my butt is becoming a little more familiar with my knees than my tailbone. If you are six feet above ground it’s a good day. So, give me more!
Faith Hill
We’re defenseless, I know we play defense, but we’re defenseless when we’re not looking at the guy who’s blocking us or when the guy’s come out and cut out our knees from underneath us.
Brian Urlacher
I remember walking down the aisle, and I got down on my knees as a person who is so selfish, but when I rose back up the Lord had become the Master of my life.
Tim Scott
You may get skinned knees and elbows, but it’s worth it if you score a spectacular goal.
Mia Hamm
I had to do a tango with Raft and I learned to dance in ballet shoes with my knees bent.
Marie Windsor
It used to be that one poet in each generation performed poems in public. In the twenties, it was Vachel Lindsay, who sometimes dropped to his knees in the middle of a poem. Then Robert Frost took over, and made his living largely on the road.
Donald Hall
Dancers, you know, they have pain everywhere: ankles in the morning, or back or neck or ribs or knees or the muscles. You are never free of pain, you know.
Sylvie Guillem
It was terrible. 2012, no voice. I would fall to my knees and look up at God and say, ‘Oh, man, this is tough. I don’t know how to be a person.’ And finally, I would sing some shows where the voice crapped out. There were people in the audience. I did my best. I saw that there was lots of love and support.
Art Garfunkel
I used to jump out of airplanes. I was a member of the 101st Airborne Division. When parachuting, you never look down at the ground. You feel for it with your legs. Your knees are your shock absorbers – you cannot tighten them. Same as skiing.
Jesse White
First time I walked out on the Opry stage, Vince Gill was there. He kind of ‘daddied’ me through the whole thing. My knees were knocking. I walked out there, and I was literally shaking. They say it’s the spirits or the ghosts. And out of respect for that whole establishment, I was really really nervous.
Randy Houser
I am the world’s most appalling martial artist. I am so bad. I’ve studied jujitsu, kickboxing, t’ai chi. Once, I was sparring with someone, made a mistake, and managed to knock them down. I was so shocked that I dropped to my knees to see if they were all right, and then they knocked me out cold. From the floor.
Nick Harkaway
Traveling is difficult when you go for long stretches at a time, but you always come back refreshed, feeling that you’ve accomplished something. I’m on my knees before I go anywhere in this world.
Thomas S. Monson
Basically, I wear sandals, like Jesus. When it gets cold in Chicago, the snow way up to my knees, I still wear my sandals. But that’s me.
Mr. T
I don’t know about everyone else, but I felt like the day I turned 40, I could no longer read the dinner menu without glasses, my knees started to betray me, and I can gain 10 pounds just by driving past a McDonalds!
Cynthia Bailey
The Tory party is like a rugby union match in which all 30 players are wearing the same strip. They’re not sure who they are grabbing round the knees, but they’re having a lot of fun doing it.
Simon Hoggart
I went down to the prison in Menard, thinking we were the vanguard, but down there, I got down on my knees and listened and learned from the people.
Fred Hampton
I have to bend my knees now when I pick my son. No more bending from the waist.
Maverick Carter
If we pulled out of Iraq tomorrow, Islamic jihadism is on the rise. And they continue, as we see in Lebanon, to seek to destroy the State of Israel and seek to drive America back and bring us to our knees. We must stand tall and straight.
Zach Wamp
I hit my knees and I went to him with that and I said God I want to do what you want. I don’t want sports to be an idol in my life.
Ben Zobrist
Instant gratification is bringing this planet to its knees.
Giles Coren
When I was 15 my great Aunt Nancy gave me a book of Alan Bennett plays, and I thought he was the bees knees.
Harry Enfield
The men who have guided the destiny of the United States have found the strength for their tasks by going to their knees. This private unity of public men and their God is an enduring source of reassurance for the people of America.
Lyndon B. Johnson
The reason I quit fashion was that I had had enough of spending my time always being on my knees, making other people look amazing and fabulous.
Thierry Mugler
I like knees to the head on the ground, kicks to the head on the ground, headbutts. I think those are all really good tools for human body weapons. I think those are important.
Rory MacDonald
You cannot put Russia down on its knees and hold it there because Russia will ultimately pull out.
Mikhail Gorbachev
I’ve stood around bogs wearing half a million dollars’ worth of jewelry, up to my knees in the rot, thinking how much more or less the place smelled like a sewer than it did the day before.
Scarlett Johansson
When I started really singing I was 17, 18 years old. I used to go around trying to be a singer in the Bronx. My knees would shake but I learned by doing.
Dominic Chianese
I will go on my knees and ask the Liberian people to participate in bringing peace and stability to our country.
George Weah
If you shoot with mechanics where you’ve got your knees bending in all the way, you’re not using your hips properly, you get all of this tendinitis and knee pain.
Kyle Korver
I saw Ellen and my knees were weak. It was amazing. And it was very hard for me to get her out of my mind after that. Then when I saw her that night, we started talking, and that’s that.
Portia de Rossi
I reached my full height at age 11, and I was clumsy as all get-out – all elbows and knees, couldn’t get up a flight of stairs without falling down. I wanted to be a cute, petite blonde, but I’m a big ol’ strapping thing, so I just accept it.
Jeannette Walls
The only difference between the Republican and Democratic parties is the velocities with which their knees hit the floor when corporations knock on their door. That’s the only difference.
Ralph Nader
I am not crazy about my knees.
Maggie Gyllenhaal
To be honest, it was slavery. Nobody should have any romantic ideas about working underground. It’s very, very dangerous. You always knew you were living in danger. You were on your hands and knees half the day.
Dennis Skinner
Even when I’m back home, I find the flat parts of the course tougher. Because it’s flat, I feel it more in my knees.
Genzebe Dibaba
I don’t jog anymore ‘cuz my knees hurt and stuff like that. I walk a lot and I am really slowing down walking.
Rudy Boesch
Number one, from a tackling standpoint, we teach strike zone hits, and we want to hit absolutely as hard as we can in that strike zone, and that’s absolutely what we call a batter in the batters box from the chest all the way down to the knees.
Dan Quinn
A lot of basketball players have tendinitis. It’s known as jumper’s knee, and it just comes from all the pounding our knees take.
Luol Deng
They have a clinic in Kansas where they work with stem cells. What they do is they remove some cells from fat out of your back and then inject them in your joints. I did it on my elbows, my hips and knees, it stimulates cartilage growth.
Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira
Intercessory prayer might be defined as loving our neighbour on our knees.
Charles Bent
I got Osgood-Schlatter disease in my knees because my bones were growing quicker than my muscles, and it’s hard to get out on the training pitch; then, afterwards, you’re in agony every single time you play football.
Danny Welbeck
Religion’s in the heart, not in the knees.
Douglas William Jerrold
Cancer didn’t bring me to my knees, it brought me to my feet.
Michael Douglas
Ice, to me, is a magical healer. At night, watching ‘Ray Donovan,’ I’ll put bags of ice on my shoulders, knees, and back. It’s a miracle cure.
Skip Bayless
Tap was against everything I had learned to do. I was pulled up as a ballet dancer, and I wasn’t used to pounding the floor with bent knees.
Cyd Charisse
On any play where there’s a scramble of 22 men, blindside hits and unprotected hits on knees occur.
