I’m a believer in private enterprise, the dignity of work, limited government, and the possibilities of freedom.
Doug Ducey
I’ve listened to music all my life. I’ve always felt that music tells more stories sometimes than films, with more possibilities.

Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu

Bill Laswell
I really hate racism because I saw people denied possibilities.
Joe R. Lansdale
People say never work with children and animals. I actually like working with Oliver Bell, and working with a rat really opens possibilities to you because you don’t know how it’s going to be. It’s just a rat, so you can just react to this rat being a rat, if that makes sense.
Tamzin Merchant
Picking apart a story for its scientific underpinnings doesn’t diminish it, it enhances it, makes us dream of the possibilities it proposes. I think appreciating the magic of reality, going from ‘can’t happen’ to ‘could happen,’ is the fundamental appeal of science fiction.

Makoto Shinkai
When an opportunity comes, it holds possibilities. And when you move away from it or don’t sense it or grasp it, you’re really throwing away your future; you’re throwing away your tomorrow.

I wanted to become an artist because it meant endless possibilities. Art was a way of reinventing myself.
Sam Taylor-Johnson

The possibilities are infinite with new writing; every time you open a new script, there’s no limit to what it might contain.
Tom Stoppard
The traditional Hollywood system is pretty rigid, but the film scene in, say, South Africa is booming with a lot of possibilities. If you have the cameras and reasonable capital, you can put your film in theatres next to ‘Guardians of the Galaxy.’ A great example of that was Kagiso Lediga’s film ‘Blitz Patrole.’
Hasan Minhaj
Techno-optimism is a belief in the power of technology to extend our sphere of possibilities and, ultimately, a belief that technology helps us solve and transcend problems, limitations and obstacles.
Jason Silva
For a brief time in the 1850s, the telegraph companies of England and the United States thought that they could (and should) preserve every message that passed through their wires. Millions of telegrams – in fireproof safes. Imagine the possibilities for history!
James Gleick
If people tell you it’s impossible, it’s an even better reason to want to do it. People have a tendency to see the problem rather than the final result. If you treat the problems as possibilities, life will start to dance with you in the most amazing ways.

Moshe Sharett

I want to show little girls that the possibilities are endless. That’s my goal – to not only do it for myself, but to show them I can do whatever I put my mind to.

Hikaru Nakamura
One of the more fantastic possibilities is that man will be able to make biological carbon copies of himself.

Ana Ivanovic
The possibilities that come with thinking about the camera as a portal into the realm of information and services are attractive not only to Snap but also to every other big player in the tech world. Facebook, for instance, has slowly been enhancing the visual capabilities of its Messenger.
Om Malik
Education makes children less dependent upon others and opens doors to better jobs and career possibilities.
Solomon Ortiz
Poetry can unleash a terrible fear. I suppose it is the fear of possibilities, too many possibilities, each with its own endless set of variations… With basketball, you can correct your own mistakes, immediately and beautifully, in midair.
Jim Carroll
Transportation is the center of the world! It is the glue of our daily lives. When it goes well, we don’t see it. When it goes wrong, it negatively colors our day, makes us feel angry and impotent, curtails our possibilities.
Robin Chase
It is reality that awakens possibilities, and nothing would be more perverse than to deny it.

Seriously, I wanted to be an artist because I saw that it meant endless possibilities. I came from a badly managed family background, so art was a way of reinventing myself.

Sarah Zettel
Composing gives me a chance to work in multiple dimensions and helps me pare down my melodies into what is essential. Learning new skills has always energized me and scoring has opened up a world of sonic possibilities.
Liz Phair
What we’re dealt with hopefully is two arms, two eyes, two legs, a head, a heart. The variations, the extensions, the possibilities of the human body, what that can do.

Pico Iyer
It’s not the number of trucks parked outside that make a movie interesting but if you have more money, you have more time. More time enables you to try out other possibilities or follow an interesting lead. I don’t like indulgence, but to have more possibilities is always more interesting.

Evan Parker
It is pure mythology that women cannot perform as well as men in science, engineering and mathematics.

Weili Dai
I’m trying to grow more limbs in order to multitask at a greater rate and I’m also investigating the possibilities of cloning. Because nothing would be more useful than having multiples of me, and that way, I could do all of the things I’d like to do in the short amount of time we all have here.

Valorie Curry
If you’re playing with a number of people, there are all sorts of textures, all kinds of possibilities you can get into. So why just play a theme together and then take solos?
Roscoe Mitchell
The best thing that can happen to people entering creative professions is the dwindling of all other possibilities.
Dennis Lehane
A trumpet sounds pretty much like a trumpet, and that’s true of a lot instruments; pianos sound like pianos, but there’s something about the guitar – the range of possibilities is much broader.
The Edge
As one gets older one sees many more paths that could be taken. Artists sense within their own work that kind of swelling of possibilities, which may seem a freedom or a confusion.

Joe Slovo

Seamus Heaney
I love the way painting is so full of illusionistic possibilities.

Abraham Maslow
You and I are essentially infinite choice-makers. In every moment of our existence, we are in that field of all possibilities where we have access to an infinity of choices.
Deepak Chopra
Imagination makes us aware of limitless possibilities. How many of us haven’t pondered the concept of infinity or imagined the possibility of time travel? In one of her poems, Emily Bronte likens imagination to a constant companion, but I prefer to think of it as a built-in entertainment system.
Alexandra Adornetto
I want to be constantly in awe of the possibilities of the universe.
Kameron Hurley
The past, like the future, is indefinite and exists only as a spectrum of possibilities.
Stephen Hawking
I’d love to work in Argentina but there aren’t any possibilities to manage there. The managers always remain the same. They just swap clubs once in a while.

I think we go through our lives limiting our potential, and when times are tough, it’s easy to convince ourselves that something isn’t possible, but if you start there, then you limit yourself and the possibilities of what you can create.
Brian Chesky
Mr. Bergman had a great imagination and saw the possibilities within every one of his actors, and he gave us great challenges. It was very inspiring.

George Eliot
There are days when any electrical appliance in the house, including the vacuum cleaner, seems to offer more entertainment possibilities than the television set.

Jesse Armstrong
I don’t know where I’m going to be in three years. Because I have the feeling that the future is so full of possibilities, to stop being an actress, to do something else… for me, the future is just a huge bunch of discoveries.
Audrey Tautou
I pretty quickly move from an idea to possibilities for execution. If there’s one advantage, I think, with working in television for even a short amount of time is trying to gain a faculty for processing a storyline or an idea and how to then best implement that and execute that as swiftly as possible.
James Spader
I’ll do anything for $50. People are always trying to get me to do dumb things. The possibilities are endless.
Ryan Cabrera
The historical novelist has to consider what has actually happened, while the SF writer is dealing in possibilities, but they are both in the business of imagining a world unlike our own and yet connected to it.
Pamela Sargent
If you ask almost any of them, ‘Do you stand behind your theory? Is this the answer?’ I think almost everyone would say, ‘No, no, no. I’m just trying to expand the range of possibilities.’ We really don’t know what’s going on.
Saul Perlmutter
With ‘Black Panther,’ black artists were provided with the opportunity and agency to create art that captures the full range of their imaginative possibilities. It matters that Chadwick Boseman is the protagonist and is supported by a cast of nearly all black characters.
Clint Smith
I think it’s exciting, working with new people. There’s something refreshing about not knowing what’s going to happen. It’s like an open sky of possibilities.
Regret is a short, evocative and achingly beautiful word: an elegy to lost possibilities even in its brief annunciation.
David Whyte
I’ve never had a grand plan. I’ve only just tried to keep open to many different possibilities, have fun and work with people who are passionate about what they do.
Steve Buscemi
Democracy forever teases us with the contrast between its ideals and its realities, between its heroic possibilities and its sorry achievements.
Agnes Repplier
We all have the same destiny. The difference is opening ourselves up to possibilities to joy, hope, and happiness along the way. Give yourself and others a chance to take advantage of what’s out there and available.
Diane Ladd
Poetry is often the art of overhearing yourself say things you didn’t know you knew. It is a learned skill to force yourself to articulate your life, your present world or your possibilities for the future.
David Whyte
The arts equally have distinct departments, and unless photography has its own possibilities of expression, separate from those of the other arts, it is merely a process, not an art.
Alfred Stieglitz
The New York City Ballet is always about the realm of possibilities, the realm of what the human body can do, what the human spirit can do. And it’s about listening, it’s about listening to remarkable music and how we respond to that.
John Guare
I don’t know much about Britain. I’ve been working overseas for most of my adult life. So I’d like to see what sort of problems there really are here. It’s a question of asking, ‘Where are we going, how purposeful are we?’ And see if there’s anything that can be done to find possibilities for change.
Rory Stewart
I got a little bit lost in the writing process: like, that moment in the ‘Fight Song’ music video where I’m throwing the crumpled paper on the bed, that was really true life. I was filling journals with different possibilities of lyrics for the first verse. And none of them felt right.
Rachel Platten
Wakanda is the Marvel world’s most technologically advanced nation, and offensives there can have ramifications everywhere, so that leaves open great possibilities for cameos.
Brian Stelfreeze
I am never wrong when it comes to my possibilities.
Placido Domingo
Everybody has fallen down or been disappointed in love. Where you truly shine is when you get back up. Use it as a learning experience and believe in all of the possibilities.
Sherry Argov
Performance art is the ultimate in creativity. Since it has so many possibilities at creativity, it’s essence tends to become creativity.
Jack Bowman
I’m open for possibilities. I’m open for choices. I always welcome new ideas. I’m always eager to learn. I’m never going to close my mind from learning.
Cesar Millan
God has put within our lives meanings and possibilities that quite outrun the limits of mortality.
Harry Emerson Fosdick
At 20, 25, 30, we begin to realise that the possibilities of escape are getting fewer. We have jobs, children, partners, debts. This is the part of us to which literary fiction speaks.
Mark Haddon
When you’re surrounded by the world’s leading social innovators, it’s impossible not to be inspired by the energy and the ‘what if’ possibilities all around us.
Tae Yoo
Monsters are a departure from ‘reality’ in a way that allows for a range of fantastic possibilities. I mean this within the world of literature as well as in regards to art. When I sit down to draw, I’m energized by the possibility of creating a monster. That is where I find beauty and pathos.
Emil Ferris
Jazz can be a blank canvas full of possibilities.
Barbara Januszkiewicz
If you’re thinking about all the possibilities of your life, there are extreme negatives, which you hope don’t happen, and extreme positives, which you just aren’t willing to think about because you think you’ll jinx it.
All motion is cyclic. It circulates to the limits of its possibilities and then returns to its starting point.
Robert Collier
What’s fun to me is that we can make movies but we are no longer restricted by this two-hour timeframe. It gives us this bigger canvas to paint on. It opens up all sorts of new storytelling possibilities.
Matt Duffer
The use of chance operations opened out my way of working. The body tends to be habitual. The use of chance allowed us to find new ways to move and to put movements together that would not otherwise have been available to us. It revealed possibilities that were always there except that my mind hadn’t seen them.
Merce Cunningham
Fighting Manny Pacquiao in the future – there’s possibilities it could happen. But whatever happens in the future happens in the future.
Canelo Alvarez
You begin with the possibilities of the material.
Robert Rauschenberg
I know for sure that nothing is guaranteed. Life always changes. I know for sure that I’m open to all possibilities always… let’s just say my life is never boring.
Gayle King
The minute you start putting words on paper you’re eliminating possibilities.
Joan Didion
If I’m not clear with the character, I can’t do anything with it. But once I get that character, the possibilities are endless. When you have such a defined character, I feel like I can actually read the phone book and make it funny.
Eliza Coupe
If your mind is empty, it is ready for anything. In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities; in the expert’s mind there are few.
Shunryu Suzuki
Before I moved here, I had no desire to become a dancer. But when I saw the dance schools in the city and the massive opportunities, I decided to give it a shot. Mumbai being a land of unlimited possibilities gave me the confidence to go for it.
Shakti Mohan
President Obama is an inspiration of mine, and interning with his administration in the White House opened my eyes to the possibilities of making change at the local level.
Michael Tubbs
The view which regards man as a well, a reservoir full of possibilities, I call the romantic; the one which regards him as a very finite and fixed creature, I call the classical.
T. E. Hulme
Jesus represents the possibilities of a new dimension of existence that transcends all the boundaries that restrict us from opening ourselves to God and allowing this source of love to flow through us.
John Shelby Spong
My parents gave me stability and a belief in myself and in all the possibilities life has to offer. I was told the only limitations I would ever face were those I placed upon myself.
Dionne Warwick
There was a time when I read a script and I just got excited about the possibilities.
Joaquin Phoenix
The growing diversity of family life comes with new possibilities as well as new challenges.
Stephanie Coontz
I am grateful that I didn’t let fear get the best of me. It only holds you back from possibilities and greatness.
Mariska Hargitay
I’ve got dreams now of reinventing ‘Hellraiser’ and just getting my head on anything I can get my hands on that maybe I would love. ‘Cause the possibilities are endless: I can make my own movies; I can make other people’s movies. But if someone had a ‘Hellraiser’ script and had funding, and I loved it, let’s go.
Shawn Crahan
We have to create a range, and we have to let there be possibilities. And basically, by showing there are different types of people, you write down the monolith. You stop having to represent for all black people when you allow there to be different types represented.
Dee Rees
The subject matter of the show, ‘Cabaret,’ was more than risky. And the emcee I would be playing didn’t have a single line of dialogue. Still, it was full of possibilities, and it was mine.
Joel Grey
In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities, in the expert’s mind there are few.
Shunryu Suzuki
The individual always realizes only one of the possibilities in its development, which could always have taken a different turning whenever it has to make an important decision.
Wilhelm Dilthey
We wanted to make a powerful cello sound in order to show to the world the possibilities of the cello and to use it in a different way than the classical way they are used to. We wanted to play something exciting, something crazy, something to draw younger generations to this great instrument.
Luka Sulic
In the novels I most admire, there is this sense that, within the confines of the world, the possibilities are always opening in new and surprising ways – that was a quality I strived to capture, with the hope that the reader would be willing to follow me.
Laura van den Berg
Without leaps of imagination, or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning.
Gloria Steinem
With any character I have played, there’s infinite possibilities for how they might behave, depending on who they are talking to or how they react to things.
Viggo Mortensen
I am kept awake by the list of possibilities for shooting more photos and deciding what I must prioritise next.
Martin Parr
‘What if?’ statements throw fuel on the fire of stress and worry. Things can go in a million different directions, and the more time you spend worrying about the possibilities, the less time you’ll spend focusing on taking action that will calm you down and keep your stress under control.
Travis Bradberry
The only limits to the possibilities in your life tomorrow are the buts you use today.
Les Brown
A deliberate choice on my part was for the player to continue to find new possibilities in the early Attic rooms far into the game. I think this builds atmosphere, though it means there’s no neat division of the prologue from the middle game.
Graham Nelson
It isn’t necessary to imagine the world ending in fire or ice. There are two other possibilities: one is paperwork, and the other is nostalgia.
Frank Zappa
I’m not ruling out the possibilities of being an ‘Ultimate Fighter’ coach.
Diego Sanchez
A lot of my creative ideas begin in the pub, talking through possibilities with collaborators.
Jon Hopkins
The necessary transformation of which I speak and of which my presidency will be a part is built on turning creative possibilities into live realities for all our people.
Michael D. Higgins
I think we are living in paradise with regards to the ways we can amuse ourselves, communicate. We have such a richness of possibilities.
Ian Watson
What does ‘work’ mean in this 21st, ultra-wired century, with its exploding new industries, low barriers to entry and endless possibilities? Is technology making our lives more flexible – or our days more endless?
Rachel Sklar
The American male doesn’t mature until he has exhausted all other possibilities.
Wilfrid Sheed
A question is a pursuit, an invitation to envision and explore a series of possibilities, to struggle and empathize and doubt and believe. The question moves, whereas our sense of what an answer is can often be static, a stopping point.
Tracy K. Smith
Transformational politics requires us to challenge the way people think about issues, opening their minds to better possibilities.
Eric Schneiderman
I have never started a novel – I mean except the first, when I was starting a novel just to start a novel – I’ve never written one without rereading Victory. It opens up the possibilities of a novel. It makes it seem worth doing.
Joan Didion
I think about a young person who is sitting at home, 13 or 14, a person of color, possibly questioning their sexuality, and watching Dr. Hugh Culber and saying, ‘I’m a part of an ideal future that we could work towards.’ We’re planting seeds in the minds of young people to say, ‘Your possibilities are limitless.’
Wilson Cruz
I often imagine what it would be like if my father were still here to mark his 100th birthday, if Alzheimer’s hadn’t clawed away years, possibilities, hopes. What would he think of all the commemorations and celebrations?
Patti Davis
I see The Stone Roses in ’89 as Technicolor: we were all about joy and possibilities of life.
Ian Brown
I like to erase lines between categories. Why separate cookbook writing from writing, healthy from good tasting? I want to be open to possibilities.
Crescent Dragonwagon
I use Windows; ’98 second edition and it works very good for me. You know, I just started on the computer about 9 months ago and am fascinated with the possibilities. I don’t know what I would do without it now.
Jimmy Carl Black
I have a very, very good life. I’m grateful for all of my friends, my family and the life that I have, and the possibilities in my future.
Raquel Welch
Denys Cowan and Dwayne Turner’s visions of Wakanda as an ersatz African Epcot Center opened my eyes to the unexploited possibilities; these men, both of whom are African American, together with writer Peter B. Gillis, created an African Asgard of sorts, and I just went, ‘Oh, my.’
Christopher Priest
I spend a lot of time copying saxophone players and trumpet players. Not to say that it is not important to listen to guitar players, but there’s so much music out there and so many possibilities. I like anyone who plays any instrument.
Bill Frisell
I believe in God, which means I am open to some absurd possibilities. But I understand the power of that faith, and I understand the metaphor of that belief.
Reza Aslan
As a player, you are more concerned with the moments when you have possession of the ball or are about to receive the ball. You are watching your team-mates and trying to decide what the possibilities are.
Frank Rijkaard
The hours I spent attempting to decipher some of Dunnett’s more oblique passages opened me to the possibilities of romantic storytelling.
Alaya Dawn Johnson
In the old days, you cut out a scene that might’ve been a really great scene, and no one was ever going to see it ever again. Now, with DVD, you can obviously… there’s a lot of possibilities for scenes that are good scenes.
Peter Jackson
The great thing about doing a series about the Broadway community is that the possibilities are endless.
Megan Hilty
So the America I came to know growing up was filled with all the excitement and possibilities found in living the American dream.
Mia Love
If you so choose, even the unexpected setbacks can bring new and positive possibilities. If you so choose, you can find value and fulfillment in every circumstance.
Ralph Marston
Campaign boot camp started as an opportunity to work in a grassroots way with people who were running for Congress. Colleagues on the Democratic National Committee were batting around different possibilities. I said, ‘We should have boot camps.’
Christine Pelosi
The object of religion is the imagination, that deep and inexhaustible font of our understanding and symbolizing our deepest possibilities.
Eugene Kennedy
The definition of an ‘operating system’ is bound to evolve with customer demands and technological possibilities.
Virginia Postrel
All cultures through all time have constantly been engaged in a dance with new possibilities for life. Change is the one constant in human history.
Wade Davis
‘Minecraft’ opens up a world of limitless possibilities, driven by the player and created by the fans who love it.
Rob Manuel
Digital Asset has a revolutionary technology platform that eliminates the counterparty risk and lack of transparency that has hindered mainstream adoption of cryptographic technology. The possibilities for reducing cost and risk in settlement are enormous.
Blythe Masters
How is it possible for someone who believes that the world was created in six days to have a rational conversation with me, who doesn’t believe that, about other possibilities?
Paul Auster
There seems to be no limit to the exciting possibilities that come from combining technical innovations, the Internet, and social media.
Mohamed El-Erian
We want to continue to explore new possibilities regarding interface and interaction. We experiment different solutions to make interface an important component for immersion rather than just a remote control.
David Cage
Problems are the outward signs of unused inner possibilities.
Rollo May
I love the early days of seasons, because you are filled with all of these possibilities.
Ross Duffer
Concern yourself more with accepting responsibility than with assigning blame. Let the possibilities inspire you more than the obstacles discourage you.
Ralph Marston
I’m basically a dinosaur. I don’t use e-mail. But I do recognize the importance of science and the resulting possibilities.
Bernard Marcus
At some point in the idea process, I simply wear myself down and force myself to choose. But here’s the thing: Once I do choose, suddenly all the other possibilities wither and die, and thus I never have a backlog of well-formed ideas waiting for me when my latest book gets finished.
Erik Larson
One does not have to agree with his views to be intrigued by the possibilities opened up by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s emergence as communicator/harangue-master in chief.
Abhijit Banerjee
Hiding places there are innumerable, escape is only one, but possibilities of escape, again, are as many as hiding places.
Franz Kafka
Inspiration is the greatest gift because it opens your life to many new possibilities. Each day becomes more meaningful, and your life is enhanced when your actions are guided by what inspires you.
Bernie Siegel
The secret of success lies in that old word, ‘Drudgery,’ in doing one thing long after it ceases to be amusing; and it is ‘this one thing I do’ that gathers me together from my chaos, that concentrates me from possibilities to powers, and turns powers into achievements.
Orison Swett Marden
There are so many possibilities of life out there that an alien doesn’t have to have green, long tentacles. They can be very similar to us.
Matt Lanter
I don’t know exactly what I would be doing, but India is a land of possibilities and there is so much to explore.
Karan Kapoor
There are endless possibilities for what I can wear on and off the court.
Kyle Kuzma
To write regular verses destroys an infinite number of fine possibilities, but at the same time it suggests a multitude of distant and totally unexpected thoughts.
Paul Valery
I’m just fascinated by the past. You know, both by the possibilities it holds and by the complete tyranny of it, the way it sort of keeps you in this stranglehold and makes you want things that you no longer have and you can never get back.
Samantha Harvey
Film is the only language I speak, and I have been lucky to be involved in some great stories. You don’t want to preach to people, but you want them to think about why things are the way they are, the history that is there as well as the possibilities.
Clark Johnson
I don’t have any affirmations, I don’t have any of that stuff. My natural state is to look at things as possibilities and as opportunities.
Michael J. Fox
Maybe it’s because I look into the future professionally, but I see great possibilities for both humanity and our planet. I don’t believe the thriving of one has to come at the expense of the other, and I’m deeply concerned to find out whether other people do think that.
Karl Schroeder
The gateways to wisdom and learning are always open, and more and more I am choosing to walk through them. Barriers, blocks, obstacles, and problems are personal teachers giving me the opportunity to move out of the past and into the Totality of Possibilities.
Louise L. Hay
God created a number of possibilities in case some of his prototypes failed – that is the meaning of evolution.
Graham Greene
Of course I would like to be more famous. It offers more career possibilities. But then it can prove restrictive. Plus you get hassled when you go shopping.
Roger Allam
But it’s like the horror of being in a studio with a blank canvas. I used to always run out of ideas because there are so many possibilities and I would just think, well what am I going to do now!
Damien Hirst
If you live under a system that claims to have high ideals but seems ineradicably opposed to your own people’s flourishing, the desire for idealistic reform within the system has to coexist with an openness to more radical possibilities.
Ross Douthat
I’ve always loved the power of stories to transport me to another world, to imagine extraordinary possibilities, to experience things I may not have access to in my regular life – like being a superhero! Also, I would always put on shows for my family and the neighbors; I guess I was an actor before I even knew it.
Kandyse McClure
It’s not going to be true that every country has the same technological possibilities, but there is no reason why it might not be more or less true. Broadly, that the idea that the same technologies should be available everywhere seems to me very plausible.
James Mirrlees
There are a lot of possibilities I’m looking at for the future, but I’m very insistent on not limiting myself.
Damian Woetzel
As to judging our own time, and thereby gaining some basis for a judgment of future possibilities, we are doubtless not only too close to it to appraise it but too much formed by it and enclosed within it to do so.
Emily Greene Balch
That’s one of my problems is that there are so many songs to sing that I sort of get indecisive about what I want to do in a show – because there are so many possibilities! There are so many great songs out there.
Alison Elliott
God, we don’t have nearly enough skilled carpenters, electricians, plumbers for the work that needs to be done in taking every single building in Canada and making it carbon-zero, a net-neutral building, by improving insulation, modernizing furnaces, improving the geothermal possibilities, heat pumps.
Elizabeth May
Friendship is something whose depth fits human aspirations and fulfills human possibilities. It has heft to it, as a gold-piece does and a gambling chip does not.
Eugene Kennedy
The art of pictorial creation is so complicated – it is so astronomical in its possibilities of relation and combination that it would take an act of super-human concentration to explain the final realization.
Hans Hofmann
Augmented and virtual reality technologies are the future of smart construction and we are just starting to see the possibilities.
Grant Imahara
Theater isn’t there to provide answers. Only possibilities. I just ask the questions. But I believe hope comes from the fact that there is a potential for redemption. At the core, that’s what matters in the theater I’m attracted to. Do we dare to hope? Do we allow ourselves to hope?
Joe Mantello
I have a very unsatisfactory and incomplete knowledge of Brooklyn and cannot discuss specifically either what you can do here or what possibilities the city shows in an artistic way. I am not a foreigner but coming here as I do after a long stay abroad, I think things here strike me much as they strike a foreigner.
Gutzon Borglum
Football can be played in different ways and the more ways you know, the better you will be. If you know only one way, you’re limiting your possibilities.
Gianfranco Zola
It’s a very subjective, personal, instinctive approach as musicians of saying, ‘We don’t want to replace what’s around; we just want to widen the possibilities.’
Thomas Bangalter
The becoming of man is the history of the exhaustion of his possibilities.
Susan Sontag
It wasn’t until I started to read short stories – by people like Alice Munro, Mavis Gallant, John Updike… Eudora Welty – that I became excited about the possibilities of writing.
Carol Windley
Our country needs a new generation of leadership, and I believe that Marco Rubio presents this nation with the greatest possibilities and opportunities to meet the challenges of the next generation.
Cory Gardner
The possibilities are endless now, with performing, getting your music online, getting your own website and getting your music out there. I think that’s very cool and amazing.
Dave Gahan
I feel like I have a very strong character, I’m super talented and the possibilities are endless for Bianca Belair. She’s somebody who can stand on her own and have a very successful, long career but at the same time I have no problem being paired with my husband in any shape or form because it’s a part of who I am.
Bianca Belair
What’s interesting about science is that we’re constantly discovering new things about the universe, about ourselves, about our bodies, about diseases, about the possibilities of the future. It’s amazing. Science is one of the coolest things about being a human being – without a doubt.
Joe Rogan
The mandate for the CTO’s office is to unleash the power of technology, data, and innovation on behalf of the nation. The CTO’s office is really trying to bring best practices, possibilities, pilots, and policy advising.
Megan Smith
I don’t think of myself predicting things. I’m expressing possibilities. Things that could happen. To a large extent it’s a question of how badly people want them to.
Freeman Dyson
I’ve learned it’s important to never lock yourself down into one thing – you need to remain fluid and open to all possibilities.
Danielle Campbell
Doing any job for too long limits your possibilities.
Michael Zaslow
The cosmical importance of this conclusion is profound and the possibilities it opens for the future very remarkable, greater in fact than any suggested before by science in the whole history of the human race.
Francis William Aston
Child prodigy is a curse because you’ve got all those terrible possibilities.
Itzhak Perlman
We have built a genuine level of enthusiasm and goodwill with people throughout this district. People are really excited about the possibilities this election holds, not just for this district, but because of the message Alabama sent to the rest of the country.
Artur Davis
I think the reality-show format is brilliant, has endless possibilities. It’s documentary! But unfortunately, it’s rarely executed well. So it becomes just a scripted show, but without actors.
Justin Kirk
People are afraid of change, but change can also mean possibilities and new things to explore.
Sean Murray
There are many spokes on the wheel of life. First, we’re here to explore new possibilities.
Ray Charles
I loved living and breathing theatre so much that I decided I had to find a way to bring my desire to act and my ability to support myself together. I’d run through the possibilities in Washington, so that meant moving to New York.
Karen Allen
If you believe, like I do, that the world is abundant with possibilities, then we need to make sure we build capacity so that everybody is successful or can be successful in the pursuit of their dreams – not the dreams of someone from government, but their own dreams.
Jeb Bush
When you have no fear, the possibilities are endless.
Jeffree Star
I think that crime is a good vehicle for looking at society in general because the nature of the crime novel means that you draw on a wide group of social possibilities.
Val McDermid
A film writer is very much like a party girl. While you’re good-looking and still unlined, the possibilities seem endless. But your appeal doesn’t last long and you’re quickly discarded.
James Salter
Reading is an act of civilization; it’s one of the greatest acts of civilization because it takes the free raw material of the mind and builds castles of possibilities.
Ben Okri
