Paulina Porizkova
When I was 19 and 20, and 20 or 25 in the world , I was enjoying it. But now it’s a rollercoaster and I just can’t seem to find the commitment to work hard, to enjoy and to lift trophies. Maybe I have to look at a few things and maybe play less tournaments.
Bernard Tomic

Ronda Rousey
If we’re going to do trade agreements, as we should, we need trade agreements with rules that will lift up all boats, rather than continuing to pull down U.S. food safety standards, U.S. worker wages, environment, all that these job losses and all that this has done to pull down our standards.

I’ll lift you and you lift me, and we’ll both ascend together.
John Greenleaf Whittier
There might’ve been wires, but I have this ability to make myself light. Well you know what, in ballet, when you kind of lift yourself here, it’s all up in the head.
Albert Finney
Yea, I really don’t lift much during training camp, I just focus on strength and conditioning, but in the time off, that’s where I’ll really hit the squats and the dead lifts. That’s when I tend to put on some weight, get to about 230lbs.
Ryan Bader
I sometimes apply eyeliner – Giorgio Armani Smooth Silk Eye Pencil in #1 Black – and smudge it with my fingers really quickly to give it a little lift, almost a cat eye. It’s all about giving a lift now.
Julia Restoin Roitfeld
When you lift up black women, you lift up entire communities and the entire country.
Meena Harris
If you compromise what you’re trying to do just a little bit, you’ll end up compromising a little more the next day or the next week, and when you lift your head you’re suddenly really far away from where you’re trying to go.
Spike Jonze
No family gets rich from earning the minimum wage. In fact, the current minimum wage does not even lift a family out of poverty.
Jon Corzine
You need to lift weights and do more resistance training. Get more sleep. I’m the first one who’s guilty of not doing that, but I work on it, and I’m aware of it. And drink more water. Drink Propel. You have to hydrate. You simply can’t perform at the level you could perform at if you’re dehydrated. Period.
Gunnar Peterson
When we were at Stoke and we first got in to the Premier League we had been second in the Championship and were regular winners in that division. The following year we weren’t regular winners, so you have to manage yourself and you have to be positive yourself you have to lift the players.
Tony Pulis
Surround yourself with people who lift you higher.
Payal Kadakia
Some people are born to lift heavy weights, some are born to juggle golden balls.
Max Beerbohm
I think yoga has given me better posture. People don’t realise how strong it makes you. You have to use your body weight to hold yourself. As you get older, you’re supposed to lift weights, but I find that kind of boring. Yoga is lifting my own body.
Andie MacDowell
A healthy body means a healthy mind. You get your heart rate up, and you get the blood flowing through your body to your brain. Look at Albert Einstein. He rode a bicycle. He was also an early student of Jazzercise. You never saw Einstein lift his shirt, but he had a six-pack under there.
Steve Carell
You surround yourself with amazing, grade-A talent, and you’re going to have to lift your game. You kind of thrive just by being around such people.
Joe Lo Truglio
I think it’s so important as a woman, and especially as a minority, to lift as you climb. So having people shadow you or mentoring people – that’s important to me.
Maria Taylor
Ministers should impress upon the people the necessity of individual effort. No church can flourish unless its members are workers. The people must lift where the ministers lift.
Ellen G. White
In many ways, Obama is America’s first truly digital president. His 2008 campaign relied heavily on social media to lift him out of obscurity.
Jenna Wortham
Though so trifling, the success of our first Buffalo hunt gave us quite a social lift.
Ernest Thompson Seton
When people come and see me, I want them to experience joy. I don’t do any sad songs in my show. It’s to lift the spirit.
Darlene Love
We used to lift weights a couple of times a week, we did a lot of running. I enjoyed the variety.
Eric Heiden
Being a strongman is a real test of functional strength. What can you pick up, carry and how fast can you move it. It’s not a weight room strength, it takes brute strength and power to lift, carry and pull all types objects from fire engines, Mack trucks, transport planes and large stones.
Brian Shaw
A lost election can have the jolt of a drop through the gallows door, leading to a dark night of the soul in which the future presses down like a cloud that will never lift.
James Wolcott
The Mississippi of 1920 was an exceptionally dangerous place for Black people. But my grandfather deeply believed in helping create opportunities to African-Americans to lift themselves up to create a better life for their families and doing everything possible to bring his people together.
Mike Espy
Caregivers need humor not only for the healing aspect but also to lift our spirits and inspire us to keep doing what we are doing.
Jim Breuer
You stay sharp. You go back into the gym. You work, put that work in, get that conditioning up, you lift. You pretty much know as a pro athlete what you need to do to get yourself back. But none of that, for me, means as much as playing.
Dion Waiters
I don’t lift weights. I do fitness exercises to stay strong.
Chad le Clos
Surround yourself with only people who are going to lift you higher.
Oprah Winfrey
The appeal of the Golden Age heroes for me is their simplicity, even their naivety – they represent the fundamental building blocks of the whole superhero genre, whether it’s a ‘super’ man able to lift cars, or a vigilante who terrorises criminals at night like Batman.
Adam Christopher
Before, I could lift 600lbs in squats and all incredible stuff in the gym, but if I walked a couple of miles I’d probably get out of breath.
Dorian Yates
The priesthood is not really so much a gift as it is a commission to serve, a privilege to lift, and an opportunity to bless the lives of others.
Thomas S. Monson
Something that can instantly lift my mood is hitting the gym with a friend.
Natalya Neidhart
I’ve learned to surround myself with women who lift me up and leave me feeling nurtured rather than drained.
Carre Otis
This is what playing football is all about – trying to reach finals and trying to lift trophies.
Gary Cahill
I’ve never been the person who’s like, ‘I’ve got to get a four-pack of abs!’ And I’m not the type to go to the gym and run on the treadmill for 45 minutes and then lift weights.
Cobie Smulders
Kind words not only lift our spirits in the moment they are given, but they can linger with us over the years.
Joseph B. Wirthlin
When I come out of my dressing room, I go to my heart and say a little prayer and go out on stage. There I am, coming to lift you up and to motivate you. I want to bring joy. It’s gospel, and gospel is the truth. It’s what I do. I’m going to bring you the truth and lift up your spirit.
Mavis Staples
When you are standing in a corner at the party, when you’ve arrived early for the meeting, when the doors have closed but the lift won’t start, there’s nothing worse than being lost for words.
Gyles Brandreth
I was compared to a bird that was too fat to lift itself off the ground.
Katelyn Ohashi
Government attempts to ban fracking should be aborted. The government should lift the burdensome regulations that have made the construction of nuclear power plants excessively expensive, thereby freeing up even more natural gas for direct use or for methanol manufacture.
Robert Zubrin
As we grow, we lift our gaze higher and higher, and then sometimes we are brought to our knees, but all is not lost; what we find on the ground can be very valuable and precisely what we need.
Michael Leunig
The smallest gesture can mean to much to those who may need a little lift in their lives.
Gordon B. Hinckley
Help each other, encourage each other, lift each other up.
Ed Reed
Mondays I sleep. I go in at ten, do my lift, watch the game from the day before. Tuesday is off, but I go in, lift, watch film. Then I have French toast with my sister.
Ndamukong Suh
There is no formula to it. Writing every song is a little journey. The first note has to lift you.
My comedy is about, lift yourself. See reality. Change the reality if you don’t like it. But if you can’t, then deal with things as they are because crying about it isn’t going to change anything.
Carlos Mencia
If God is so powerful, can he create a rock which he cannot lift?
Terry Goodkind
It’s a powerful thing to know that you are empowering someone to lift themselves out of poverty.
Jessica Jackley
Some days I want to get the boob job, some days I want to get the eye lift. Then other days, I’m like, ‘Absolutely not! Have some integrity!’… But it’s all about what makes you happy.
Diane Lane
Our American heritage is greater than any one of us. It can express itself in very homely truths; in the end it can lift up our eyes beyond the glow in the sunset skies.
Bruce Catton
A healthy body means a healthy mind. You get your heart rate up, and you get the blood flowing through your body to your brain. Look at Albert Einstein. He rode a bicycle. He was also an early student of Jazzercise. You never saw Einstein lift his shirt, but he had a six-pack under there.
Steve Carell
All in all, racing with lift and coast is actually harder.
Lewis Hamilton
Stand in my lobby at 5:30 P.M., and there is no one who gets out of the lift who is not on a gadget. No one is talking to each other. I get in the lift and say, ‘Hello,’ and everyone’s head is down tapping on a screen.
Philip Green
My vision is that I’m living to see two more daughters get married, dance at their weddings and then lift the Lombardi Trophy several times.
Chuck Pagano
I was quite shy. I found my way, I suppose, with food. It’s a confidence builder. How else in life do you get that opportunity for someone to say to you, ‘Wow, that’s really great’? You put food in front of someone and, ‘Ahhh, I really enjoyed that!’ It’s a lift.
Ainsley Harriott
I don’t need to do that many weights but every now and then I do the bar, with 25-30 kilos on either side, which amounts to roughly probably my body weight. I lift this up above my head, then drop it and lift it up again.
Carl Froch
I think it’s so important to think about the basic human rights of others and to use our collective voices, minds and bodies to lift those people up and bring about change.
Courtney Act
So I was getting into my car, and this bloke says to me ‘Can you give me a lift?’ I said ‘Sure, you look great, the world’s your oyster, go for it.’
Tim Vine
I’ve been doing Pilates since 1974, I lift weights, I power walk every day and I run backwards. That’s sometimes a little hard when you’re not on your home turf, because you’ve got to find a place where there are no bumps in the way – or people.
Britt Ekland
I think you always want to have a project where it’s not about you: where you’re serving it. Where it has needs, and you’re trying to meet those needs, so you’re trying to lift it out of you and put it out there and then say to people, ‘Hey, I think that’s it; let’s head that way.’
James L. Brooks
I was happier going back to my roots: training like men do in my hometown of Pittsburgh. Back home the guys in the gyms don’t lift to look good; they’re lifting to lift. They do it because they want to squat more and bench more.
Joe Manganiello
I have a rough time wanting to spend billions and billions and trillions of dollars to help people who won’t help themselves, won’t lift a finger, and expect the federal government to do everything.
Orrin Hatch
I’m really excited to be chosen as a VEVO LIFT artist. It’s a great opportunity to reach millions more music fans with my sound and let them see the real Rita.
Rita Ora
As a listener, we’re looking for that person who kind of excites the molecules within us – who knows how to tell the story that resonates deeply to our core and almost prompts us into action. Fats Waller has been that person for decades. When people need a lift, sometimes they go to him. I know I do.
Jason Moran
In WWE, I focused more on Olympic lifting. I had to make sure that I was physically able to lift another human being at all times.
Eva Marie
Living in a small Italian hilltown, and having lived in a small town in south Georgia, I understand that you can recognize a family gene pool by the lift of an eyebrow, or the length of a neck, or a way of walking.
Frances Mayes
I may demonstrate the various stages of making a loaf on stage, but they don’t end up in the final product I lift out of the oven at the end. If it were real food preparation, I’d wear a hair net, a hat, and rubber gloves – not a pretty sight.
Paul Hollywood
I lift weights four times a week, usually run five days a week.
Jimmie Johnson
It’s amazing to me the number of people who will volunteer to help at church but won’t lift a finger to help at home!
Joyce Meyer
I make sure that I am active all time. For example I make it a point not to use the lift or escalator. If there is a staircase then I will climb it, even if it is 10 floors.
Milind Soman
I’d like to write about whatever is going on with me at that point of time or situations I’m – which I’m sure a lot of people can relate with. I mean, I’m a deep person. I’d like to dig deep into the psyche, but at the same time, you make things that are gonna lift everyone up.
William Singe
I dread to be compared to all these directors who have a lot of spontaneous emoting and swearing in their films – that is death; it’s a cul-de-sac. It doesn’t lift the material at all. It’s just a cliched reproduction of what we think is normal behaviour.
Pawel Pawlikowski
The first thing I tell clients is get off the couch! Just start making some small lifestyle changes such as walking to work instead of driving or taking the stairs instead of the lift. The small things you can change all add up.
Jessie Pavelka
There is no better exercise for your heart than reaching down and helping to lift someone up.
Bernard Meltzer
My music is homegrown from the garden of New Orleans. Music is everything to me short of breathing. Music also has a role to lift you up – not to be escapist but to take you out of misery.
Allen Toussaint
The Fourth Industrial Revolution can compromise humanity’s traditional sources of meaning – work, community, family, and identity – or it can lift humanity into a new collective and moral consciousness based on a sense of shared destiny. The choice is ours.
Klaus Schwab
If you would lift me up you must be on higher ground.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
I guess there’s a sort of cycle with writing books. There’s all the researching and then the imagining and writing – which is the real job – and then there’s always a period when the book comes out and you have to lift your head and venture out.
Monica Ali
I always liked the idea that Thor was the god who’d wake up every day and look at that hammer and not know whether he was going to pick it up. Only the worthy can lift the hammer of Thor, and I love the idea of a god who was always questioning his own worthiness.
Jason Aaron
I think for women especially, you need to have a plan. I need to have some other ways to generate income, so I don’t have to stretch my face or lift the top of my head with surgery or something.
Tina Fey
There are sections of the film that I don’t love. There are moments that really lift and elevate, and then there are parts that feel clunkier to me. But the totality of ‘Harold and Maude’ is so much greater than maybe other films that are more perfect or look more beautiful or handle every moment more exquisitely.
Peter Hedges
Winning five titles in a year is amazing, and I’m happy I was part of that, and I’m happy that I was able to lift those trophies and carry the Canadian flag with pride. I think that everything that came with 2020 was special to me.
Alphonso Davies
You can’t win the hearts and minds of the masses unless you inspire them – you must lift their spirits and enliven their hearts.
Jason Silva
No, Islam did not lift American blacks out of poverty; capitalism did that.
Tom Tancredo
I always want to spend time around people who lift me up and make me feel like my best version of myself. So if I can spend time around people that make me laugh or something like that, that’s incredible.
Tana Mongeau
When we went home every winter, they warned us not to lift heavy weights because they didn’t want us to lose flexibility. They wanted us to be baseball players, not only home run hitters.
Ryne Sandberg
Nature uses human imagination to lift her work of creation to even higher levels.
Luigi Pirandello
People still think of me as a cartoonist, but the only thing I lift a pen or pencil for these days is to sign a contract, a check, or an autograph.
Walt Disney
Physically, I’ve seen a change in my life. No, I haven’t had a face lift or anything like that. I’ve grown. That’s God’s countenance.
Natalie Cole
For me, the goals were not important, but instead to lift some silverware at the end of the season. That is the objective for a footballer.
Robert Pires
As a story writer, you have work with sharp but relatively small tools, the picks of metaphor, the shovel blade of images, the trowel of point of view, and then you delicately lift and brush in the revision with love and care knowing that one slip, and you might damage an extremely delicate thing.
David Means
In Detroit, the quarterbacks lift with all the linebackers and running backs and everybody else, so I’m doing that whole thing.
Matthew Stafford
I practice transcendental meditation and there is a phase where you’re meant to lift off the ground.
Heather Graham
I lift weights. It’s one of the reasons I get up so early.
Betsy Hodges
All I can do is lift to the best of my ability and then let whatever happens, happen.
Laurel Hubbard
Let’s be very clear: Strong men – men who are truly role models – don’t need to put down women to make themselves feel powerful. People who are truly strong lift others up. People who are truly powerful bring others together.
Michelle Obama
I think the amazing thing about gospel music is that not only does it lift up the death and resurrection of our Lord, which is consistent with the Gospel, but it is uniquely communicated depending upon the generation.
T. D. Jakes
You can go crazy and play solos in the right place, and that’s great because it can intensify and bring an emotional lift. But the thing is you don’t want to get in the way of the song.
Benmont Tench
I have my grumpy days. The players will tell you that. But you have to be positive because you have to lift them.
Tony Pulis
You know, when you’ve idolized something, you put it on a shelf, lift it up, and when King Day comes out, you pull it out and show it. Or when Black History Month comes out, you show it, or when April 4th or other times, you show it. But, you see, Dad wouldn’t want us to idolize.
Martin Luther King III
I would say a must-do in Canada would be to go skiing at Whistler in Vancouver. You could take a chair lift for, like, a half hour to the top of this mountain, and you ski down; it takes like so long to get to the bottom. You go past the clouds. It’s absolutely incredible.
Sebastian Bach
The original purpose of the welfare state was to lift people into self-sufficiency, not to create a permanent underclass dependent on taxpayers.
Stephen Moore
Most people don’t have so much talent that they can become a success all their own. We all need people to help us and lift us up.
Queen Latifah
I have parents and family who will never allow me not to be grounded. If I thought for a second that I could possibly lift off the ground, I have a thousand people who will grab my ankles.
A compassionate heart will lift you out of the pain and suffering of your own world because it knows that everyone is doing the best they can, given their state of consciousness and the histories they’re dragging behind them.
Debbie Ford
Sometimes you change just to do something different, to improve the performance, lift the team.
Gennaro Gattuso
Comic Relief funds projects that help lift people out of poverty.
John Bishop
We’ve got to lift our game tremendously. We’ll sell our business news and information in print, we’ll sell it to anyone who’s got a cable system, and we’ll sell it on the Web.
Rupert Murdoch
I remember my first ever gig in town, I was very nervous. I had a big red shiny face. But that all disappeared after 30 seconds and I settled down and got a great lift from that.
Ardal O’Hanlon
Let’s resolve in 2019 to lift up our communities, as well as each other.
Kevin Faulconer
And also it was a process of, we lifted weights as well, in an effort to train my body to then be able to lift heavier weights when I got in Australia. So that was the first couple of months.
Brandon Routh
I think we have challenges, but we have so many opportunities to get it right. I like it when we have a little bit of a headwind. The kite actually lifts when you have a headwind and doesn’t when there is lift from the back.
Borje Ekholm
If you want to lift yourself up, lift up someone else.
Booker T. Washington
Imagine a safe city with all the affordable housing we need, a city that uses its resources to help lift the marginalized up and into stability. This is the Portland I imagine. This is the Portland I dream about every single day.
Ted Wheeler
What you do once you’re beyond the confines of your local lift service can be as limitless as the mountains themselves.
Craig Kelly
In the preseason, in the month of October, I work out almost every day, lifting weights for 20 or 30 minutes, and then during the season I usually lift weights twice a week, sometimes a little more.
Steve Nash
When I started lifting weights, I remember I could barely bench the bar. I mean, I’m shaking all over the place, the bar’s falling, and I’m like, ‘I can’t lift 45 pounds,’ but it just goes to show how much work I put in.
Shaquem Griffin
I don’t want to waste anyone’s time or money. I want to give people some truth and positive heart lift.
Mos Def
Obviously, sometimes in the summer, when you’re by yourself in the gym, you lift, you run… it gets hard sometimes. It gets hard sometimes; I’m not going to lie.
Dirk Nowitzki
The Minister of Transport issued this appeal to motorists: Can anyone give him a lift to Leicester?
Eric Idle
Yes, love indeed is light from heaven; A spark of that immortal fire with angels shared, by Allah given to lift from earth our low desire.
Lord Byron
I founded Grameen Bank to provide loans to those considered traditionally unbankable. Grameen Bank works with the poorest and often illiterate, providing uncollateralized micro-loans for tiny business enterprises by which they can lift themselves and their families out of poverty.
Muhammad Yunus
I don’t have to build up strength; I have been blessed with it. I do lift weights and train hard, but I am a very special individual – a very special man with very special talent and very special power. I can get any man – any man – out of there in a matter of seconds. That is the thing I love about myself.
Deontay Wilder
I can smell a liar like a fart in a lift!
Robert Rinder
I think a lot of my fans are anxious for more than just my singles. They know I’m a dreamer. They know I’m someone who is real spiritual. I love to have fun, and I always have fun songs – songs you can party to. But I also always have songs you can live to, that when you’re depressed, it may lift your spirits up.
Big Sean
I’d been touring for so long, seven years. For a year and a half I’d just been curious about what it was like not to tour. It’s like if you were to lift a 100-pound barbell with your right arm for seven years, eventually you’d get really curious about what your left arm was capable of.
Receiving the authority of the priesthood by the laying on of hands is an important beginning, but it is not enough. Ordination confers authority, but righteousness is required to act with power as we strive to lift souls, to teach and testify, to bless and counsel, and to advance the work of salvation.
David A. Bednar
I think sometimes the critics want me to beat people down, and that’s not in me. I want to lift people up.
Joel Osteen
There is a loftier ambition than merely to stand high in the world. It is to stoop down and lift mankind a little higher.
Henry Van Dyke
You have to lift your head up out of the mud and just do it.
Teri Garr
North Carolinians have shown we know how to lift one another up.
Roy Cooper
I’ve always associated the moment of writing with a moment of lift, of joy, of unexpected reward.
Seamus Heaney
If we do not lift up women and families, everyone will fall short.
Kamala Harris
I dont regret for one minute that I only won one trophy because again, to play at Wembley and lift the trophy, how many players can say that? Of course, Id like to have been in contention to win trophies every single year, but I wasnt, but I can sleep easy at night knowing I got the best out of what I had.
Robbie Savage
Music can lift the spirit; it can make you cry. Soldiers have marched into battle to music. It’s a powerful thing.
Jools Holland
In 1959 I had broken the bench press record by lifting 565 pounds, and I could lift 715 pounds from a squat.
Bruno Sammartino
I’m so tough and so bad, I can be humble and lift another guy up.
Mr. T
I hope we can agree that it’s better to cut taxes substantially, robustly, for the middle class as opposed to the top 1 percent. That would lift people’s wages or take-home pay. And when you do that, you automatically are reducing somewhat the big costs in their lives.
Bob Casey, Jr.
I lift weights. I work out. I try to keep my body together – it’s the only one I’ve got.
Patti D’Arbanville
How do I take a step? How do I lift my foot off the ground, move it through the air a little bit and then bring it down? I had to teach myself to walk again.
Jonah Lomu
Do you feel gloomy? Lift your eyes. Stand on your feet. Say a few words of appreciation and love to the Lord. Be positive.
Gordon B. Hinckley
Properly practiced creativity must result in greater sales more economically achieved. Properly practiced creativity can lift your claims out of the swamp of sameness and make them accepted, believed, persuasive, urgent.
William Bernbach
My favorite thing is when we lift a trophy. Afterward, we can have a picture of us lifting a trophy. And that picture shows a lot of work, a lot of difficulty and a lot of sacrifice together.
N’Golo Kante
An audience can really lift you right up off the stage.
Captain Beefheart
Life should not be a funeral march to the grave. We should have the capacity for being able to lift up not just public dialogue, but lift up each other in a greater cause of nationhood.
Dennis Kucinich
I have to eat healthy, and I recover. I run, and I lift weights.
Joey Chestnut
I don’t really lift weights. It’s kind of a vanity thing that I don’t get into.
Jeremy London
I would spend a lot of time setting up an accident scene where it appeared that I had seriously hurt myself – hedge-cutter, ketchup, that sort of thing. When my sister happened upon the scene of horror, I would lift my head and pathetically plead for her to ‘get Mum’.
Greg Davies
So I was getting into my car, and this bloke says to me ‘Can you give me a lift?’ I said ‘Sure, you look great, the world’s your oyster, go for it.’
Tommy Cooper
I do music for the fans. I want to lift fans up.
I always had this perception that when you lift weights, you’re going to get bulky and thick. I didn’t realize you actually burn a lot of fat and that it trims you down.
Nikki Bella
We all look to have transcendent experiences that lift us out of the everyday, and fear is a good one. But, I think it’s the same reason why people want to laugh their heads off.
Adam Arkin
I can’t tell you what will happen over the next four years. But I can only stand here tonight, as a wife, a mother, a grandmother, an American, and make you this solemn commitment: This man will not fail. This man will not let us down. This man will lift up America!
Ann Romney
The physical voice we use in prayer need not be great nor startling; even should we not lift up any great cry or shout, God will yet hear us.
I last went to a gym when I was a teenager to make sure I could lift ballerinas.
Damian Woetzel
Winning domestic tournaments like leagues, cups, and super cups adds to your standing in your country, but once you take a step forward in Europe and lift that European Cup, I think that prestige extends to the global stage.
Iker Casillas
The best piece of advice I’ve received is find a mentor, but also mentor others. You have two hands, so reach up, look for as many mentors as you can to get where you want to go, but never forget that you have another hand, and you have to reach down and lift others up, too.
Eric Swalwell
Need a body-confidence boost? Pick up a pair of dumbbells and let your gaze linger on the outline of your biceps as you lift the weights.
Denise Austin
Certain periods in history suddenly lift humanity to an observation point where a clear light falls upon a world previously dark.
Anne Sullivan
You are not going to lift everybody out of poverty through the kindness of wealthy people.
Winnie Byanyima
Yes, love indeed is light from heaven; A spark of that immortal fire with angels shared, by Allah given to lift from earth our low desire.
Lord Byron
I don’t want to be embarrassed when I go to see something on the screen. I don’t want to listen to foul language, watch a lot of violence or see something immoral. I prefer stories with sensitivity and family values; films that strive to lift you up to a higher place in life.
Debra Paget
We’ve said it since the beginning of time: The philosophy of The New Day has always been to lift your brother up.
Kofi Kingston
I joined the Royal Shakespeare Co. with no experience whatsoever – I’d never been to a drama school or anything. But I was strong and could lift things, I could move scenery about.
Roger Rees
I really want to lift the Champions League trophy one day.
Franck Ribery
Oh, I just want what we all want: a comfortable couch, a nice beverage, a weekend of no distractions and a book that will stop time, lift me out of my quotidian existence and alter my thinking forever.
Elizabeth Gilbert
Of course, the kids who had never heard of a person called Ben E. King were then aware of the name associated with the song. That gave a tremendous lift to me as an artist.
Ben E. King
I realized that every sermon I preached should be designed not to ‘teach’ or ‘convert’ people, but rather to encourage them, to give them a lift. I decided to adopt the spirit, style, strategy and substance of a ‘therapist’ in the pulpit.
Robert H. Schuller
The mission of NASA’s Kepler telescope is to lift the scales from our eyes and reveal to us just how typical our home world is. Kepler operates by measuring the dimming of stars as planets pass (‘transit’) in front of them. It has found thousands of previously unknown worlds.
Seth Shostak
If we humble ourselves before the Lord, He will lift us up… He will. That’s His promise.
Paul Washer
Red lipstick is my armour – I feel it distracts from my hereditary dark circles and gives me an instant psychological lift, no matter what my mood is.
Liz Goldwyn
Maybe it’s every kid’s dream to go into a pod and come out looking like Captain America. And you don’t even have to exercise or lift weights! It’s great!
Joe Johnston
What we see before us is a politics devoid of kindness and truth… today, politics is not being used in the service of the people: it is being used to crush them, not to lift them up.
Rahul Gandhi
All of Europe’s biggest clubs place the Champions’ League as their top priority these days but only one of us can lift the trophy. The domestic league titles are still crucial of course, but I think most players will tell you the Champions’ League is the one they want to win most of all.
Jaap Stam
I don’t think most of my hobbies would be surprising to anybody. I obviously like to spend a lot of time with my family. I like to train. I like to lift.
Bill Goldberg
I’m a big runner, and I like to lift heavy. I’m not one for those little two-pound dumbbells – my goal is to be super-muscular in my 40s.
Barbie Ferreira
When you are in a competition, and there’s however many men competing alongside you, you do not get to determine when you go to lift… you don’t know how many guys will make it to the next round. You don’t know how long they’re going to take.
Brian Shaw
The American boy starts swinging the bat about as soon as he can lift one.
Tris Speaker
For obstacle racing, you wanna be as light, lean, and fast as possible. So, if I lift a lot of weights, I’m gonna be a little bit heavier, which will make it harder for me to hold myself up.
Kacy Catanzaro
Rock n’ Roll came from the slaves singing gospel in the fields. Their lives were hell and they used music to lift out of it, to take them away. That’s what rock n’ roll should do – take you to a better place.
Meat Loaf
We’d go to the crappiest mountain because they had the cheapest lift tickets.
Red Gerard

It would be great to lift the Champions League trophy.
Paolo Maldini
If I don’t lift weights, I don’t feel healthy.
Matt Hardy
In every generation, politicians let us down, but music can lift us above the fighting and the mistakes. It does not offer answers to specific political questions. Instead, it looks beyond them.
Stephen Hough
When I realized I can actually lift and drop someone, I was convinced I have become stronger.
Wamiqa Gabbi

Milkha Singh
I really hope I can lift many trophies with Inter.
Mauro Icardi
What we face may look insurmountable. But I learned something from all those years of training and competing. I learned something from all those sets and reps when I didn’t think I could lift another ounce of weight. What I learned is that we are always stronger than we know.
Arnold Schwarzenegger
Go out and do your drills that you do to try to get better. You lift your weights, try to take things from the classroom to grass, try to get better every day.
Julian Edelman
We’d always said boxers shouldn’t lift weights. Now I realize some champion boxer started that rumor. I noticed if I did weights a couple of times a week, I would be able to hit that jab a lot longer. After sparring, everybody’s gone, and I sneak into the weight room. Spend 40 minutes in there lifting weights.
George Foreman
The wonderful thing about age is that your knees don’t work as well, you can’t run down steps quite as easily and obviously you can’t lift heavy weights. But your mind doesn’t feel any different.
Roger Moore
I don’t have an offseason workout regimen. I don’t lift weights. I don’t run. I don’t do anything. I let my body rest. I just eat good. I actually eat great.
Julio Jones
I was captain and should have set the example. I would lift a minimum of weights. Mine was natural physical strength. I always thought quickness and agility were much more important.
Merlin Olsen
I love Stevie Wonder for his sense of rapture in the music. He can swing through a zappy tune, lift your heart, or drift into a sad ballad with consummate ease.
Tim Pigott-Smith
All the world wondered as they witnessed… a people lift themselves from humiliation to the greatest pride.
Corazon Aquino
I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead; I lift my eyes and all is born again.
Sylvia Plath
Certainly my dream is to lift the Premier League trophy with Liverpool, and that’s what we are trying to do.
Roberto Firmino
Nothing had been attempted like that, to lift Dad’s voice, literally, off of that track and put it on a brand-new one, and then line it up, match it up, get the phrasing right. I remember listening – everyone listening at the end, and we were just enthralled. It was really wonderful.
Natalie Cole
On the field, aggression can sometimes be a positive emotion. It boosts performance and can lift your game. But over the years, I have learnt that restrained aggression is a better animal. That way, you will conserve your energy and won’t spend yourself quickly.
Virat Kohli
In a relationship each person should support the other; they should lift each other up.
Taylor Swift
America is a place where you can be born into a low-income household but still lift yourself up, and it doesn’t matter what color you are.

Sushma Swaraj
Business is one of the most powerful institutions on Earth for creating wealth and opportunity and helping to lift people out of poverty. When you think about it that way, then business is not separate from development policy.
Peter Blair Henry
If you compromise what you’re trying to do just a little bit, you’ll end up compromising a little more the next day or the next week, and when you lift your head you’re suddenly really far away from where you’re trying to go.
Spike Jonze
We don’t do spaghetti and Bolognese sauce together in Italy. That is technically wrong because when you lift up the spaghetti the sauce will just run down. The way to do it is to use pasta like fettuccine or tagliatelle so the sauce sticks to it.
Gino D’Acampo
I pack on mass quickly when I lift.
Zach McGowan
I’ve never been able to lift my own weight, and the day when you have that capacity, it’s pretty empowering!
Alicia Vikander
Let’s be very clear: Strong men – men who are truly role models – don’t need to put down women to make themselves feel powerful. People who are truly strong lift others up. People who are truly powerful bring others together.
Michelle Obama
What I’ve realised is that you can run miles, jump on a bike, lift weights, and all that other garbage, but the bottom line is that you get in tennis shape by playing tennis. You build the right muscles, and I don’t believe people can do it as successfully any other way.
John McEnroe
I try to do something every day. I lift weights at least three to four days per week, and I’ll intersperse that with cardio. For example, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, I’ll run and do heavy lifting, and on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, I’ll spend two hours lifting weights, as well as something like swimming.
Misty May-Treanor
Regis can do anything these young punks can do. I fit right in there with my Fox people. They want Regis to dance, Regis will dance. They want Regis to lift weights with them, Regis will lift weights with them. Whatever they want!
Regis Philbin
When I am doing cardio I lose my muscle really fast because it just kills it. That’s why I have to do weights in the gym: to ensure I don’t lose my shape and can lift my dance partners above my head.
A. J. Pritchard
I like to keep fit, but I never lift very heavy weights.
Ralph Fiennes
Because of the tension and difficulty, I remember trying to do the silliest things when we weren’t rolling cameras, anything to lift the spirits. But once on set, it was important to have full concentration.
Madeleine Stowe
I want to do stories that are about the bits of cultural furniture that are sitting there that we’re like, ‘Oh yeah, that’s been there for years! What could possibly be weird about it?’ And then we’re going to lift that piece of furniture and look at all the bugs scurry away.
Adam Conover
The United States cannot feed every person, lift every person out of poverty, cure every disease, or stop every conflict. But our power and status have conferred upon us a tremendous responsibility to humanity.
Richard Lugar
Youngsters of the age of two and three are endowed with extraordinary strength. They can lift a dog twice their own weight and dump him into the bathtub.
Erma Bombeck
It’s damage to a nerve. It pretty much shut down the whole lower part of my left leg. I wasn’t able to step anymore. It’s called foot drop – basically, you can’t lift your foot.
Michael Chandler
My boyfriend’s idea of a lesson was to take me on a black diamond run in the middle of a hail storm and say, ‘Go!’ Ski patrol had to escort me to another lift to get me down the mountain. No, that wasn’t humiliating, not at all.
Claudia Black
But there’s no problem to lift before the game in the morning, then play the game at night.
Zdeno Chara
Refusing to lift sanctions and adopting tougher rhetoric toward Iran would not be partisan issues. Plenty of Democrats think that those actions are both good politics and good policy.
Elliott Abrams
I once saw a forklift lift a crate of forks. And it was way to literal for me.
Mitch Hedberg
Even the smallest dog can lift its leg on the tallest building.
Jim Hightower
I do a lot of mixed martial arts – it’s like unlimited fighting. I do Brazilian jujutsu, beach volleyball. I don’t like my routine to get stale, so I also lift kettle bells and push cars.
Victor Webster
I see the crowd singing ‘Rock ‘N Roll’ or ‘Back Road’ at my concerts… they are anthems and they lift up your life.
Rodney Atkins
Comedy, not screaming at someone, can make someone lift their legs higher. There is a way to do a push-up and a sit-up, and it doesn’t have to be so complicated. Everyone is putting a difficult twist to it and making you do way too much.
Richard Simmons
My purpose: to lift your spirit and to motivate you.
Mavis Staples
If you really want to receive joy and happiness, then serve others with all your heart. Lift their burden, and your own burden will be lighter.
Ezra Taft Benson
Americans have different ways of saying things. They say ‘elevator’, we say ‘lift’… they say ‘President’, we say ‘stupid psychopathic git.
Alexei Sayle
Free enterprise has done more to lift people out of poverty, to help build a strong middle class, to help educate our kids, and to make our lives better than all the programs of government combined.
Mitt Romney
Aficionados of Slow design and Slow fashion use ethical and green materials to make objects – furniture, clothes, jewellery – that lift the spirit and last a lifetime rather than one catwalk season.
Carl Honore
All emotions are pure which gather you and lift you up; that emotion is impure which seizes only one side of your being and so distorts you.
Rainer Maria Rilke
There are some templates that are in place for bipartisan investment in ways to make our economy stronger and ways to lift the middle class and help the vulnerable.
Bob Casey, Jr.
In order to lift a certain object from the ground, we have to use energy. But then to sustain it at that level, we have to keep on adding energy, or otherwise, the object falls to the ground. It’s exactly the same thing with the sound.
Daniel Barenboim
Being the vice-captain, you see a lot of things on the field. You have to try and help the captain as much as you can and lead by example on the field. Small things like getting a run-out or taking a catch makes the other boys try and lift their standards. So yes, I do have an important role, even if I’m not captain.
