Andreas Pereira

Paul LePage
We must find ways to encourage more professional women to participate in politics.

Justine Bateman
Growing up, I wasn’t the most vocal kid in the world. I feel like I learned through observation, and usually, when you’re watching things, you’re not speaking. That sort of metastasized in a way that I began to participate less and less in the world.

Robin DiAngelo
I think a goalkeeper has to participate at the back of the defence and come off the line to play.
Thibaut Courtois
Well the beauty of ‘Iyanla: Fix My Life’ is that men are in every show.

Iyanla Vanzant

We participate in the creation of the world by decreating ourselves.
Anne Carson
The skit was very successful based on the applause. After that show, the three of us decided to get together and try and come up with some songs that we could all participate in.
Phil Harris
I just always loved stand-up. It’s like magic. You say something, and a whole room full of people laughs together. Say something else, they laugh again. The fact that people come to see that and participate in that… I don’t know, it’s just like magic.
Dave Chappelle
It’s always important not to fall for the narrative of the terrorists. If you want to fight for getting a normal life back, you also have to participate.
Erna Solberg
Libertarian immigration policy would be an experiment in which I don’t think we should participate. We should not bet the republic that the results will be good. I suspect the results would be a disaster and the end of the American experiment.
Jan C. Ting
If you are gonna participate in a band, you’ve got to be a band member in good standing, and you’ve got to think about the needs of the whole.
Lindsey Buckingham
I’ve enjoyed being a baseball owner more because I’ve enjoyed owners being allowed to participate.
Jerry Reinsdorf
Our shows are packed with laughter and light-hearted songs to lift the listener from their everyday life. We encourage the audience to participate in any way.
Jason Mraz
They decided to let immigrants in and I am an immigrant. They gave us a chance to participate in this country’s life and I took it.
Ayaan Hirsi Ali
My own feeling is that one should refuse to participate in any activity that implements American aggression – thus tax refusal, draft refusal, avoidance of work that can be used by the agencies of militarism and repression, all seem to me essential.
Noam Chomsky
The 1996 welfare reform law, for the first time, connected welfare benefits with an expectation that recipients would work or participate in training. That work requirement led to record increases in employment and earnings and a record decrease in poverty and welfare dependence after it was enacted.
Charles Boustany
Digital has really made the fashion industry a lot more transparent. So people can see and understand how the industry really works, and participate in an industry that was very inaccessible to people. The only thing that people used to see before was the end product. Anyone can participate in it now.
Imran Amed
I think that the failure of newspaper competition in a community is a very serious handicap to the dissemination of the knowledge that the citizens need to participate in a democracy.
Walter Cronkite
Our compulsive hunger always to know first, speak first and decide first has only been amplified by the fact that we can now all participate instantly in a virtual version of a national cocktail-party conversation on Twitter, Facebook and blogs.
John Podhoretz
Seoul will do what it can do, such as letting citizens participate in cutting energy use or in producing more of their own energy. This is how we can thwart the increase in nuclear plants.
Park Won-soon
In a perfect world, people don’t have to move to another country to get a higher wage. Ultimately, they need only be able to participate in producing output that is sold internationally.
Robert J. Shiller
I shall participate, I shall contribute, and in so doing, I will be the gainer.
Walter Annenberg
We like where we live and we wanna participate in our neighbourhoods and communities and stuff and try to- we’re not like benevolent- it’s pretty basic.
Jon Fishman
Whoever is playing with me, they participate in the arrangement; I learned from Craig Street to really pool the stories and the skill and the voices of everybody around you on the bandstand to build an arrangement in the moment.
Lizz Wright
I would think the correlation between an era of increased globalization and an increased desire to participate in an entrepreneurial endeavor is not a coincidence. When interconnectedness is at a peak due to technological advances, the ability to spawn something new is slightly easier.
Vivek Ramaswamy
Most meetings largely take place in one physical location, and then people plug in remotely. But they are a little bit off to the side; they can’t participate in the meeting as fully as you like.
Andy Jassy
I can’t talk about foreign policy like anyone who’s spent their life reading and learning foreign policy. But as a citizen in a democracy, it’s very important that I participate in that.
Ron Silver
At a moment when people are losing faith in their ability to participate in politics and make themselves heard, the media can play a critical role in reversing that sense of alienation.
Katharine Viner
If you make – not have – $1 million a year, should you not participate in the sense of community of our country? I’m willing to put that on the table.
Nancy Pelosi
Facebook is really about communicating and telling stories… We think that people can really help spread awareness of organ donation and that they want to participate in this to their friends. And that can be a big part of helping solve the crisis that’s out there.
Mark Zuckerberg
Regardless of the nature of their crime or any rehabilitation that may have occurred, these ex-felons cannot participate in the decision-making process of this great Nation.
Charles B. Rangel
I am not surprised that other gases may participate in cellular signaling and regulation. Our early work with nitric oxide was just the beginning. I’m sure more will be discovered.
Ferid Murad
When my office asked the regional HHS office to participate in an enrollment event – something they routinely have done for previous ACA and Medicare Part D enrollment – they said no. They were prohibited from doing so – under orders from the Trump Administration.
Jan Schakowsky
The ADA allows persons with disabilities the opportunity to participate in the world around them.
Tammy Duckworth
Voting is how we participate in a civic society – be it for president, be it for a municipal election. It’s the way we teach our children – in school elections – how to be citizens, and the importance of their voice.
Loretta Lynch
You have to know you are in a comedy. You have to know that you are actually allowing the audience to participate on some level. When you go dark and mean it, then you don’t let them in.
Kelsey Grammer
We’re just a general-purpose search engine and torrent-tracking system. You can put whatever you want on the Pirate Bay. We don’t participate in how the people communicate with each other. We only participate in bringing the possibility to communicate and share files.
Peter Sunde
I decided early on that I wanted to participate in the greater American experience, rather than the parochial one in Mississippi. But I have an urge as a writer to meld the Southern experience into the larger American one.
Richard Ford
Participate joyfully in the sorrows of the world. We cannot cure the world of sorrows, but we can choose to live in joy.
Joseph Campbell
My school has always encouraged students to participate in different competitions and it was my teachers who helped me overcome stage fear as I have always been a very shy person.
Manushi Chhillar
When we embraced social media, we took more control of the Newark narrative. We increased responsiveness toward residents. We drew more of our constituents in to participate in government and improve our cities.
Cory Booker
I ultimately do still feel like an outsider, and I do feel, actually, I’m more in the world of music because of how much I participate with musicians – in all aspects, not just clothes.
Jeremy Scott
The American way was for commerce, personal relationships, and religion to be voluntary. No one was forced to participate in something he didn’t want.
Harry Browne
For me, I don’t participate in the filming when I represent a reality show star in a case, because that would mean waiving my right to attorney-client privilege, and that would hamper my ability to mount an effective case.
Laura Wasser
For low light, all the light rays participate. We’re using all the light coming through a large aperture to make a picture with a large depth of field – totally impossible with a conventional camera.
Ren Ng
I remember feeling proud as I cast my first vote in Chicago in the 1972 presidential election – President Richard Nixon versus Senator George McGovern. Finally, I could participate. There was so much at stake.
Richard Edelman
I had always been interested in politics. I had assumed, for a variety of – well, for two reasons, being Jewish and being gay back in the late ’50s, early ’60s – that I would never be elected or anything, but I would participate as an activist.
Barney Frank
Many financial innovations such as the increased availability of low-cost mutual funds have improved opportunities for households to participate in asset markets and diversify their holdings.
Janet Yellen
I think you choose how you walk through this life. I think if you choose to participate in a paradigm that is looks-based, if you’re an actor, then it can be empowering in some ways, and it can be really limiting in some ways in terms of time and longevity.
Bellamy Young
Technology has transformed how we live, learn and work, but not everyone has been able to participate in these developments.
Julian Castro
I find there is room in music to talk with music. It may expand ways people can participate with music. It doesn’t sound hokey or like some kind of voice-over.
John Trudell
It wasn’t something that I really wanted or had dreamed about. Because of your socioeconomic status or your culture, you think you can’t aspire to be an actress, and to participate in this medium, that sounds like a fantasy.
Yalitza Aparicio
My priority is to turn people – especially kids – on to sports and being active so they don’t even have to think about it being good for their health. If people participate for the fun of it, and believe me – it is fun, then fitness programs will be much more successful.
Alan Thicke
It happened to me on ‘King of the Hill,’ where I’d left it before the end and didn’t really participate in the ending, and I always felt a little bit like I wanted to try a different version of that story.
Greg Daniels
For me, actors have to have a character, an aura, body language. They’re not models. They used to call actors models. But I want them to participate in the film.
Pawel Pawlikowski
Badminton will gain momentum in a big manner after my win in Olympics. More players will participate in the game now.
Saina Nehwal
If you want to participate in life, you have to deny your identity.
August Wilson
It’s like the American democratic system. When you vote, even if your candidate doesn’t win, you accept that democracy was in action. When people participate in a Tezos network, they’re accepting that the democratic vote of the other coin holders will govern the way the protocol moves.
Olaf Carlson-Wee
I love Black poets. I love that as a Black girl, I get to participate in that legacy. So that’s Yusef Komunyakaa, Sonia Sanchez, Tracy K. Smith, Phillis Wheatley.
Amanda Gorman
By preventing pneumonia and other diseases, we are giving men, women and children the chance to live healthy productive lives and participate in the global economy. In doing so, we are not only enhancing their futures – we are enhancing our own.
Mandy Moore
I want to give every victim of every crime in San Francisco the right to participate in restorative justice if they choose to.
Chesa Boudin
That’s how you live. You participate. You take risks.
Damian Woetzel
I was one of the first ones to participate in fundraisers for AIDS.
Ruth Westheimer
Mike Tyson as a kid was a mark, he loved wrestling. So that was something he loved to do when he had the opportunity to participate.
Michael Buffer
Russia and China, when they were communist-like adversaries, they didn’t participate. They’re participating now in the world with us. They’re trading monetary instruments. We’re buying and selling goods back and forth, trading oil and so forth.
Wesley Clark
You cannot study acting in books. Do it, do it, do it. And watch good actors. See what they are doing and how they are doing it. You have to practically participate, I think, in order to develop yourself.
Max von Sydow
I never got a chance to participate in one, but I wanted to be in an iron man match. I really just wanted to go in there and I remember pitching a couple of times too, and it wasn’t necessarily for an iron man match, but I wanted to just go out there for a full hour and just do a match.
Christian Cage
Just like it would be wrong to have a player referee a game, it’s wrong for election officials to participate in federal campaigns.
Lucy McBath
I have been offered thrice to participate in ‘Bigg Boss’ and I rejected it everytime.
Manini Mishra
I think if we’re going to have a requirement that everyone have equal access to insurance, you really have to have a way to make certain that everyone is expected to participate.
Ron Williams
Evolution happens in nature and in individuals. I want to participate actively in its happening within me.
Victoria Moran
Yet the march toward freedom is not without its hazards or its casualties and the threats of violence aimed at Iraqis who participate in the election will be dealt with accordingly.
Jim Gerlach
It is morally, politically and socially wrong for business as business or labor as labor to participate directly in politics.
George W. Romney
Trust implies that both parties participate in the relationship with both ‘gives’ and ‘gets.’
Denise Morrison
Over the years, I observed that many talented graphic designers, including those in my own family, had difficulty getting their designs to market. I thought it would be possible to hold open stationery design competitions where all designers could participate.
Mariam Naficy
As in Athens, the right to participate was restricted to men, just as it was also in all later democracies and republics until the twentieth century.
Robert A. Dahl
I don’t know what drives me, but I wake up in the morning, and I want to participate in the creative cultural conversation.
Dasha Zhukova
Blogs are a great way to monitor and even participate in the chatter about your new site.
Mike Davidson
There are some common problems in the Balkans in the settlement of which Bulgaria should also participate.
Todor Zhivkov
We are not interested in cloning the Michael Jordans and the Michael Jacksons of this world. The rich and the famous don’t participate in this.
Panayiotis Zavos
I recently had the opportunity to participate in Inc.’s first-ever ‘Hire Power Awards’ event in Washington, D.C. The event was a testament to the power of American entrepreneurship and the role that it plays in driving job creation and innovation in a wide array of industries.
Karen Mills
I want to see what this baby’s going to be into; how I can participate in his interests. You know, teach him things, see the manners that he will inhabit from both of us and see the first smile and what he’s gonna say first. Hopefully ‘dada’ not ‘mama.’
Artem Chigvintsev
I participate in the SNAP Challenge to raise awareness about the millions of people in our communities who struggle with hunger on a daily basis despite living in the most prosperous nation ever known.
Ted Deutch
I had it on my mind that I will fight in Cologne, because UFC is coming to Germany, where the biggest and largest Croatian community lives there. It was my big, big, big wish to participate. Even my doctor didn’t believe I will make it, but I did.
Mirko Cro Cop
I love movies. I can’t participate in my love of movie-making fully unless I’m producing it.
David Lowery
I definitely think when I’m feeling super down or having tantrums or not able to participate in any activities, I have to control myself. I have to tell myself, ‘No, focus, focus, focus, do this, do this, do this.’ Instead of shutting down, I encourage myself to think positively and move towards the light.
Jazz Jennings
I’m not photographing the model in the classic sense; the model is playing a part in my photographs. It’s more like theater. I always work with models I know, and I let them participate in deciding how to act their part.
Kim Weston
I will go on my knees and ask the Liberian people to participate in bringing peace and stability to our country.
George Weah
My first sport was volleyball, and then somebody told me about cross-country. They said it was outdoors, coed, and everybody got to participate. And I said, ‘That is the sport for me!’
Daryn Kagan
If you look back at the great classics and the epics and myths, they were for everyone. Different people got different things from them, but everyone was invited to participate.
Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni
I came to Mumbai to participate in a dance reality show and thought that could be my ticket to Bollywood. Gradually, I discovered that acting is what I am more passionate about and that passion has helped my boat sail.
Sanya Malhotra
The idea of investing in entrepreneurs who are building things from scratch, where I can participate in their dream, was very, very exciting to me.
J. B. Pritzker
My father loved democracy. He loved the ancient Greeks because they invented democracy, and he shared their contempt for those who refused to participate in the political process.
Kerry Kennedy
We know that literate people are more likely than others to participate in their societies’ democratic institutions and that the risk of war drops as more of a country’s citizens receive a secondary education.
Julia Gillard
The whole business is changing dramatically, and the way fans follow and participate in movies, and make their own movies to emulate those movies, is profoundly different.
Wes Craven
At first glance, The Color Run does look a lot like Holi. Its website is populated by photos of people throwing coloured powder at each other and in the air, outdoors, at the start of spring. The only difference, it seemed, was that there was a 5 km. run added in. And that it cost $54.99 to participate.
Elizabeth Flock
I think that what people want is for government to function… not through temper tantrums and saying we are not going to participate, we are not going to play ball.
John Cornyn
There is a directory where you can explore every single person who has gone through YC and a private forum that only founders can participate in.
Michael Seibel
I was always encouraged to participate in whatever sports I wanted to be in.
Elana Meyers
I don’t want to participate in traditional Indian religious ceremonies – dance in a sun dance or pray in a sweat lodge or go on a vision quest with the help of a medicine man. The power of these ceremonies has an appeal, but I’m content with what little religion I already have.
Ian Frazier
We are fighting for free, fair and transparent elections, which means that every citizen of Belarus will be able to participate in those elections.
Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya
I like a movie that the audience actively has to participate in, and not just casually observe. Whatever my part in it, just as an audience member, I find that exciting.
Jennifer Jason Leigh
I just try to find things that either need to be done, should be done, or where I can make a difference in a significant way. And the things I’ve been able to participate in have been very, very exciting.
Paul Allen
We want to make sure Arizona residents have the opportunity to learn about the decisions we are making and have a chance to participate in the process.
Doug Ducey
From the employees’ standpoint, in 1935, Social Security was a big gamble. Employees would be required to participate in the program, contributing a percentage of their income for their entire adult working life.
Wayne Allard
We watch a romantic comedy because we want to cry, say, or an action movie so we can participate in heroics. Horror’s different. It can hit you with a moment of revulsion so hard you might want to erase the last five minutes of your life, please.
Stephen Graham Jones
I highlight the importance of self-care and the need to be there for people. I participate in various shows and panels and also use my music to promote mental health. This is a subject close to my heart and I often discuss it on my social media platforms.
Ananya Birla
Olympics is global competition in which eighty, ninety, hundred, hundred and ten countries participate.
George Pataki
One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors.
We must stop posing as victims of the West and behaving negatively towards the West. We must participate with the West on an equal footing in the reconstruction of the world.
Tahar Ben Jelloun
