When I see films like ‘Lagaan’ and ‘Rang De Basanti,’ I feel, ‘Why can’t I do work like this?’ Then you think and realise you need to learn more to make this kind of a film or write this kind of a film. Also, somewhere down the line, you need to be brave.
Rohit Shetty
I don’t think people realise the quality of player in the lower leagues.
Conor Coady
And I hope America will realise, as the only superpower now, it really must use its power in a way that’s going to build up the world, and to support the United Nations.
George Carey
You fight for certain roles, and you realise they’re being filled by television and film actors, because theatre is constantly fighting for survival and they need names and faces and ticket sales.
Richard C. Armitage
Cancer definitely rekindled my spirit. It made me realise that every human being has the capacity to overcome a huge setback.

Greg Davies
Psychology is a big part of sport that some people do not realise. But it is a skill you have to practice.

Ritika Singh
I think I didn’t realise the commitment that came after winning the Worlds.
Rob Cross
My mission was always intended to be slightly outside the public eye, because that makes me appear more interesting than I really am. A lot of people don’t realise that merely by staying away, you can create a myth.
Julian Cope
‘Dr Who’ is an extraordinary association that I have because I didn’t realise until I was in the show quite how worldwide it is and how popular and how dear it is to so many people’s hearts.
Bonnie Langford
I thought, ‘I don’t really drink that much.’ But when you stop completely it is a shocker. You realise that a glass here, going to a function there, they all tot up.
Kate Garraway
I realise there’s an innate paradox in promoting oneself on the one hand and saying, ‘Oh, I don’t want to be famous,’ on the other.
Romola Garai
I used to hate stilettos. It took me a lot of time to understand how to walk in them and look graceful. And eventually, you realise their importance.

Never stop fighting until you arrive at your destined place – that is, the unique you. Have an aim in life, continuously acquire knowledge, work hard, and have perseverance to realise the great life.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
I think that the older I get, the more I play, you realise when it’s your time.
Stuart Broad
When it comes to music, I am a dictator. Making a Dirty Projectors record come to life is like making a movie; I’m the one that makes the picture, and then we all figure out how to realise it.
David Longstreth
I always wanted to be a professional athlete, it just took me a while to realise it would be in racing. I played field hockey competitively for Ontario since I was 13, 14. Then I tried for the national side and made it. But it was so competitive. The girls were just so big and strong. I was getting crushed.
Chantal Sutherland
Football brings you lots of lovely things, but then you have to realise that it’s actually a job.
Yaya Toure
It’s really important that young people realise very rarely do you become an overnight success.
Karren Brady
When you walk the track and you see a corner and realise you were going round it at 160mph, you wonder who could be so stupid to take a corner at that speed. But in the car, you don’t even think about that.
Sebastian Vettel
What a lot of people don’t realise about me is that I have no idea what’s going on in the media. I don’t pay any attention to it, as I consider it mind pollution. The last time I touched a computer was in 2001, and my phone is too old to use the Internet. I just don’t enter into it at all on any level.
Pete Burns
As a kid, you get to the stage where you realise the gender barriers that exist in society and what you’re supposed to do and not supposed to do.
Andreja Pejic
We need to realise that not everyone can take the path to overnight success. Take actors such as Rajkummar Rao and Vicky Kaushal – they have built their work and profile over the years to get to where they are.
Shriya Pilgaonkar
I didn’t realise my upbringing was unusual until my teens. As the child of two actors, I presumed that visiting film sets and being surrounded by colourful characters was normal.
Emilia Fox
I realise that film industry is a brittle and fragile world, but I’m ready to face it all because I’m too much in love with this space.
Vicky Kaushal
The problem with cosmetic surgery is that people who have it can only see how they look in the mirror. They don’t realise how weird they look from other angles. I particularly hate the injections that puff out the face, which are hideous.
Jerry Hall
My parents had something to say about everything I did. As a kid, I thought they were against me. Now I realise they were mostly right.
Suniel Shetty
But now that I’m approaching my mid-forties and have a child, I realise more than ever that I need to look after myself. I like to keep fit and enjoy swimming and cycling.
Kris Marshall
Only the filmmakers need to realise your potential.
Rahul Dev
I grew up in a really poor city. It was difficult, but I always had in my head that I would win, that I would be a professional player, help my family and friends, and realise my dream.
Lucas Moura
People do not realise that many of my works are done in urban places. I was brought up on the edge of Leeds, five miles from the city centre-on one side were fields and on the other, the city.
Andy Goldsworthy
It’s very shocking, I think, for people caring for the dying to realise how unsaintly they feel, how much anger is mixed up with their grief. In fact, often I think the anger that they feel is a form of grief; it’s a kind of raging against what’s happening.
Helen Garner
Poets have to be sensitive to their audience, but it does not mean that they censor themselves. I realise my audience is diverse. Some will read with empathy and curiosity while others will take offense.
John Barton
I’m very careful. I think about everything. Some people go, ‘Oh, I went out and bought something and didn’t realise how much it was,’ but there’s no such thing with me. I always think about the future because I never want to go backwards.
Olga Kurylenko
I got a bit down, depressed and fat, but I needed to be out of the game to realise I need boxing.
Kell Brook
Sometimes the hardest decision is to say no to something, and I think when you’re less confident or when you’re younger, you say yes to everything, and as you get older, you realise you don’t need to.
Joanna Coles
When you get older, you realise it’s all about winning games and winning trophies.
Jesse Lingard
From my own point of view, I hope everybody would realise that people who work in Scottish football – referees included – are always under terrific scrutiny.
Walter Smith
I’m not naive and realise it doesn’t make good commentary or sell newspapers if you only say nice things, and the time does come when you have to say someone isn’t good enough and has to go. But commentators like Richie Benaud have shown that criticism can be made in a constructive or humorous way.
Nasser Hussain
Midlife is a time of explosive change, when our hormones rampage and our bodies alter, forcing us into a whole new chapter of life whether we want it or not. Everyone has a moment when they realise for sure that this so-called passage of time is changing them – and perhaps not in a good way.
Kate Garraway
So many of the bands that influenced me growing up were English, even if I didn’t realise it. English pop ruled the world in the ’80s!
CeeLo Green
Painting was always something I thought I’d do once I retired. But then, about five or six years ago, a good mate passed away suddenly at the age of 50 and it made me realise that if I put off doing stuff until I retire, I might not ever get there.
Anh Do
Having been a father for 19 years I realise fatherhood has changed me.
Nicolas Cage
I guess a lot of people don’t realise, but I’m always playing a character when I’m working. When you’re always having people’s images projected on you, who ‘Daria’ is as a person sort of disappears.
Daria Werbowy
We’re taking part in a divine comedy and we should realise that the play is always a comedy, in that we’re all ultimately ridiculous.
Max Hastings
There was a time when people felt the internet was another world, but now people realise it’s a tool that we use in this world.
Tim Berners-Lee
Life is short and the older you get, the more you feel it. Indeed, the shorter it is. People lose their capacity to walk, run, travel, think, and experience life. I realise how important it is to use the time I have.
Viggo Mortensen
You have to realise that hypnosis doesn’t exist: it just works on people’s natural suggestibility, their expectations and capacity to unconsciously role play. You can’t make someone do anything they don’t want to do.
Derren Brown
‘Toast’ is based on a bunch of actors but especially one guy. I worked with him on a film and realise that if I mentioned any actor who was around his age but more successful, it would drive him insane. So from sheer devilment, I’d do it on purpose.
Matt Berry
Whenever you get to win, you feel the satisfaction of all of your hard work, all the sacrifices, all the blood, sweat and tears. It feels right and makes you realise that you are really doing the right thing.
Abby Wambach
When you realise that the ball is faster than you, you say to yourself, ‘OK, I love the game. I want to go on in this game, but not as a player.’
Nuno Espirito Santo
It took me a long time to realise that I need to stay true to my game.
K. L. Rahul
Cyclists. I really hate them. I wish they would not be so self-righteous and realise they are a danger to pedestrians. I wish cyclists would not vindictively snap off wing mirrors on cars when they were trying to cross in front of the car at a danger to motorists and pedestrians.
A. S. Byatt
One day you look out and the audience consists of 65,000 people. It’s like looking in the mirror and one day you realise you’ve gone grey.
Patrick Carney
I’ve had fans coming up to me and speaking Chinese or Japanese. It’s not a case of mistaken nationality. I just don’t think they realise that we don’t all speak the same language.
Park Ji-sung
We actually went public partly because we wanted companies to realise we were not going away.
Parker Harris
You have to realise that players change every year, just like we change because every year is different, as things happen in our lives.
Mauricio Pochettino
Fame doesn’t redeem you. It takes a long time to get there, and when you’re finally there, you realise you still have authority figures telling you what to do.
Cyndi Lauper
So, I went to Harvard and I got exposed to American work habits. I didn’t even realise for a while that I was behind. I kind of had the illusion that I was understanding things. But people worked so hard and the thing I learnt first in America was that people work incredibly hard.
Abhijit Banerjee
In the early stages of being out, you meet all these people from all kinds of backgrounds, and the one thing you have in common is you’re all gay, but then you start to realise how different your experiences actually are.
Andrew Haigh
I have come to see what the Tour is about, and it has been harder than I imagined. You don’t realise what it is like until you actually compete.
Geraint Thomas
I used to think that the feeling of alienation that I would have was just me, but I realise that it’s also a symptom of the modern world.
Hilton Als
I used to draw stickmen with star glasses when I was at school. I didn’t realise that would end up being me! The whole idea was that the glasses had mirrors, and if a youngster looked at me, they’d see themselves. Everybody is a star.
Bootsy Collins
Our societies have achieved a general level of prosperity of which most of all the human beings who have ever lived could only dream. Now we need to show that we can stop continually wanting more – more money, more stuff. We must show that it is possible for people to realise that they have enough.
John Lanchester
I do not have any regrets of having joined politics. Though the experience was bitter, even that taught me a lot of things. Only after I entered politics did I realise what it is.
I usually don’t talk for three days after a defeat. Then you have an epiphany and realise it’s just a game.
Alun Wyn Jones
We all live in this little bubble that we just expect to live forever and I think those of us that have been with people battling cancer, you realise, actually, this surrounds us everywhere we go.
Andrew Strauss
In Bollywood, the film’s stakes are as high as the actor. In Hollywood, they are way above, and the day we realise this in our industry, we will start appreciating actors.
Ali Fazal
My dad says that when I was two or three I used to go out dressed as a different character every day. I remember thinking it was perfectly normal to wear different coloured shoes and carry a pink umbrella. But now I’ve got a goddaughter of that age; I realise it’s not normal at all.
Alice Eve
When hearing aids were first mentioned, I pictured myself as that old geezer at the back of the church with the whistling ear trumpet, but you can’t see these Phonak hearing aids, and people don’t realise you’ve got them in.
Roger Taylor
I used to tweet, but it’s an act of futility. You’re not really making any impact, and if you find yourself in a mood when you wanna be a bit controversial and you post something, you suddenly realise, ‘Oh my God!’ because you’ve opened yourself up to a bunch of criticism from strangers.
Sylvester Stallone
Particularly in China, I think a lot of people start to realise, OK, what are the things that they truly should value? That’s something that fits perfectly well with what Volvo is offering.
Li Shufu
You don’t realise how long three years is until you go away and write an album.
Ryan Ross
It took me time to adjust and to realise it was not going to happen like it did in the juniors.
Amelie Mauresmo
You realise that having a number one record and being loved and adored isn’t the most important thing in the world. But at the same time, I don’t have a problem with it. What I’m trying to say is, I’m not a reluctant pop star.
Madonna Ciccone
I think people are always really surprised when they realise I’m not a very serious person and that I’m not tremendously serious about acting. I don’t like to rehearse; I hate improv. Directors that don’t like to talk, they’re my favourite ones.
Julianne Moore
Winning Wimbledon in 2011 was a bit of a surprise for everyone, including me. It was like I was in a dream, and I didn’t realise what it meant.
Petra Kvitova
I used to be under the impression that if a role wasn’t difficult, then there was nothing happening. Then a director said to me: ‘Ken, you’ve got to realise, acting can be fun, too.’
Ken Stott
Online one day, you log in, and you realise, ‘This is not me.’ Everything you’re posting, you’re doing it in the context of everything you’ve posted before. Let’s delete everything, save the stuff that’s important, and then you only have to organise the one per cent that’s worth keeping.
Evan Spiegel
For me, if I can dance and not really realise I’m keeping fit, but I am then great, dance is a good one.
Tamzin Outhwaite
When you realise that money doesn’t actually make you happy, it’s a quick fix to have things you’ve always wanted, but then when you have it, you realise that’s not what actually makes you happy. It’s more about having a great marriage and happy children; that’s what life’s all about.
Shane Filan
I’ve come to realise that being on ‘Strictly’ is like being in another theatre company and performing a live production.
Darcey Bussell
I think I’m an extremely good mother. I know I’m an extremely good mother. But I didn’t realise how much it sucks out of you.
Alex Kingston
When you are born into a family like mine, you don’t really know anything else. But you quickly realise that it’s more about other people and how they are dealing with it. Some can be hugely in awe or uncomfortable, but to you, your parents are just your parents.
Jade Jagger
Politics is something that is bigger than many people would think and you just need to learn how to deal with them and how to accept it and how to treat them. I think that from when you are 10 years old and you look at F1 and don’t realise it’s there and then it is.
Carlos Sainz Jr.
What governments and people don’t realise is that sometimes the collective interest – the international interest – is also the national interest.
Kofi Annan
Los Angeles is an uncanny place to live. It has many science fiction qualities. For example, when I’m standing in line at the supermarket and I recognise the person in front of me, but I can’t figure out how I know them. Suddenly, I realise I saw them in some random commercial six years ago.
Martine Syms
The actual teaching itself becomes lost in a sea of paperwork and teachers soon realise that the very reason they entered this profession constitutes only a fraction of their working day.
Layla Moran
There have been setbacks, illnesses and other obstacles, so inevitably I’ve had disappointments. But once you realise that things can’t always go your own way, you’re on the right track to being able to handle your own life.
Diana Quick
We may not realise it, but dancing is a form of meditation.
Neve Campbell
We are an industry, and we are all in this together and can’t survive without each other. I feel it is high time we realise that. If we go against each other, or if we get happiness from other people’s fall, then there is no way we will move ahead.
Varun Dhawan
We need to realise that entrepreneurship is not necessarily increasing employment.
Gita Gopinath
When people say to me don’t the years go fast I have to be honest and say that whereas I don’t realise where they go in the long term, I pack so much into a year it seems to take forever.
Paul Daniels
If you stop now and start to realise what you have achieved, then you start to relax, and you start to lose. I don’t think about everything I have achieved. I will do it when I retire because then I will have a lot of days to remember.
Gerard Pique
The most important thing to realise is that everyone is capable of telling a story. It doesn’t matter where we were born or how we grew up.
Maeve Binchy
I had a few problems. I didn’t realise it until I started going to therapy. I did it for 10 years, two days a week, and pretty quickly I understood that a lot of my suffering, many of my issues, were rooted in my realising that I was gay when I was a little boy. I knew I was different. That made me very fragile.
Stefano Gabbana
A lot of things in films are cheated with the use of camera tricks, so while it may feel unnatural to do, when you look at the result, you realise that it is right.
Ashley Thomas
I had some terrible times – comparatively speaking. I saddled myself with a load of debt, I wasn’t liked by a lot of my fellow comics and I used to blame other people for me not getting a break. But now I realise I just wasn’t very good. And as soon as I became good, things took off pretty quickly.
Michael McIntyre
When I signed for Real Madrid, I knew it was a big club, but only when you’re inside do you realise the magnitude of this team.
Emmanuel Adebayor
There are times when you look at your life and realise how lucky you’ve been.
We realise that natural aptitudes are not interchangeable, and each person must, of biological or spiritual necessity, practise the art for which he is fitted.
George William Russell
Health is a precious gift. You realise more and more as you get older just how precious a gift it is.
Judith Durham
If you always think about your dreams or goals, work steadfastly towards them and continue to challenge yourself, you will definitely be able to realise those dreams or goals.
Tadashi Yanai
I realise that in an electoral campaign, you don’t want to antagonise large groups which are highly motivated.
Zbigniew Brzezinski
The average Londoner knows just one neighbour. I travel a lot, and I’m always surprised by the strong sense of community in some countries. We’ve lost something fundamentally human, and we don’t even realise it.
Lily Cole
I used to think that losing made you more hungry and determined but after my success at the Olympics and the U.S. Open I realise that winning is the biggest motivation.
Andy Murray
I’m always astonished by a forest. It makes me realise that the fantasy of nature is much larger than my own fantasy. I still have things to learn.
Gunter Grass
Looking back, I realise it wasn’t only gym I dreaded at school. Every class was a torment. It wasn’t knowledge I objected to but instruction. Why couldn’t they just tell us what books to read and leave us to get on and read them?
Howard Jacobson
When I found out my parents wanted to homeschool me, I was so bummed out. I missed all my friends. But now I realise that if I wasn’t homeschooled, I’d be the lamest kid ever – I wouldn’t have been able to speak English, for a start.
Rich Brian
I thought work and family complete life. Aarti’s enthusiasm and energy levels made me realise that life can be even more wholesome and fuller.
Chanda Kochhar
When you’re doing some things that are damaging you, you don’t really realise it at the time.
Natasha Henstridge
I have come a long way and learnt a lot. I read this quote about a year ago: ‘Happiness must not be pursued; it must ensue.’ It’s made me realise that just being married again or something like that won’t make me happy; the happiness ensues from how we live our lives.
Lucy Davis
Sometimes I stop, take a step back, and realise how good I’ve got it.
Buddy Murphy
We’ve got to start making people realise that it’s a proud thing to run a business, to export your goods around the country.
Karren Brady
‘Bigg Boss’ changed my view of the world. Before I joined the show as its host, I was living in a bubble. I believed the real world is a happy place. ‘Bigg Boss’ made me realise that the world is made of all kinds of people, including some judgmental ones. It has introduced me to the real world.
I suppose what happened is that I spent my whole life wanting to be cool but eventually came to recognise the mechanism of how coolness works. So it’s not really that I don’t want to be cool anymore – it’s more like I’ve come to realise that coolness doesn’t exist the way I once assumed.
James Murphy
I was so beautiful but I didn’t realise it for years. I saw pictures of myself and even I was stunned.
Britt Ekland
When I was at drama school, I wanted to change the world, and thought I had some great wisdom to impart to people about humanity. Now that I’m older, I know enough to realise that I know nothing at all.
Michael Sheen
Before getting meningitis, I was such a hypochondriac, worrying about the slightest ache. Ironically, I overlooked meningitis because the symptoms seemed like flu. I guess you don’t realise how healthy you are until it is taken away from you.
Petra Stunt
You are brought up to realise that there will always be tough times in football and that nothing is ever straight forward.
Trent Alexander-Arnold
See, a painting is much cheaper than making a film. And photography is, you know, way cheap. So if I get an idea for a film, there are many ways to get it together and go realise that film. There’s really nothing to be afraid of.
David Lynch
There are certain things I talk to my mom and certain things I speak to dad for. But I also know that it has never been that I can tell my mum something and my dad won’t know. They are very dependent on each other even though they may not say it or realise it.
Deepika Padukone
Perhaps, more importantly, I think that most human beings realise only a fraction of the true potential of their minds, so the spiritual or mystical, the things which remain mysterious or unexplained have always drawn me to include them in any scheme for a novel.
Rose Tremain
I think once you enter the dating world and you realise it’s nothing like those Disney movies you watched when you were a little girl, you just become more guarded.
Megan Fox
People don’t realise how dyslexia affects your confidence and how brutal it can be. People think you’re dumb, and you know you’re not. it’s just how your brain works.
Kaya Scodelario
Seeing my parents makes me realise that life is not a fairy tale.
Mollie King
Who you are as a person is more special than trying to be someone you’re not. Don’t get me wrong – I have bad days, everyone does, but I know if I’m feeling insecure today, I’ll move on tomorrow. I’d tell girls to realise it’s OK to have bad days to get to the good ones.
Hayley Hasselhoff
I hope that people realise pitting two women against each other is just silly.
Samara Weaving
I’ve come to realise that the best teachers never stop being teachers.
Kimberly Quinn
How strange a thing like that happens to a man. He dabbles in something and does not realise that it is his life.
Patrick Kavanagh
Even if censorship might encourage creative ways to circumvent it, it still slows down progress and our ability to realise our full creative potential. And that is why I vehemently fight against it.
Lucien Bourjeily
I was in a bar in Rio and a cow walked in, I looked into its eyes, and I saw such tranquillidad, serenity. Then I started seeing cows everywhere. I realise why the Indians worship them.
Manu Chao
One must realise that it is not a child’s play to run a government.
H. D. Kumaraswamy
All my foster homes were very good to me. But it’s still not a very nice experience. It’s only when you’re older, you realise: we were on our own in there. As kids, you don’t know what’s happening. You’re here. Then you’re in the next house. But the families were all very good to us.
Barry Keoghan
I was accorded the opportunity to learn by failing – albeit at the cost of a few honourable teachers’ sanity – and now I realise what a rare and incredible luxury that is.
Arabella Weir
When you come from a place and an identity, you can feel constricted and have to get away. But then you realise how much a part of you it is.
Morgan Neville
People realise that if Labour is to fulfil its founding goal of transforming our economic and political system into a more equal, free and truly democratic society, which provides security and life-changing opportunities to the British people, then there is no going back.
John McDonnell
The very first big photo shoot I ever did was with Bruce Weber. I couldn’t believe this guy was taking my picture, so when he told me to get in the bathtub, I just did. It’s only now, looking back, that I realise, you don’t have to do everything people tell you.
Matt Damon
To a person of analytical ability, perceptive enough to realise that mathematical equipment was a powerful sword in economics, the world of economics was his or her oyster in 1935. The terrain was strewn with beautiful theorems begging to be picked up and arranged in unified order.
Paul Samuelson
There are more women editors than people realise. I think we’re more able to keep our eye on what the film needs. Between men, sometimes it’s a real ego battle, and that’s very bad for the film.
Thelma Schoonmaker
Women should realise their strength and set goals.
Sudha Murty
Doing something that empowers people makes you realise how boring it would be to work for a place where the goal is just to make more money. It’s much easier to get out of bed and look forward to 12 hours of work if you’re making the world a better place.
Taavet Hinrikus
I have been up and down the batting order and it’s difficult. People don’t always realise that.
Moeen Ali
You never realise how much of your background is sewn into the lining of your clothes.
Tom Wolfe
We’ve all said, ‘No, no, I couldn’t do that… ‘ But actually, you could if you just went, ‘You know what? I will… and I shall.’ Once you realise that, it’s quite wonderful.
Victoria Pendleton
I’m grown up enough to realise how to play cricket. I love the game.
S. Sreesanth
People worry about their looks going, but go deeper, and you realise you know yourself more and you’re more comfortable in your own skin and more settled within yourself, and that’s a really great basis on which to live your life.
Alesha Dixon
When you start to realise how much of what you’ve constructed of yourself is based on deception and lies, that is a horrifying realisation.
Jordan Peterson
I was so intent as a young lawyer on beating the men at their own game that I didn’t take any real maternity leave with my three younger children. It is only looking back that I realise I wasn’t beating the system but reinforcing it.
Cherie Blair
I’ve been five times to Mali, and when you’re there, it makes you feel differently, like you realise you’ve a lot in life to be thankful for, and you have to give something back as well.
Mousa Dembele
I found myself reading about this 16-year-old kid inventing a micro-organism to save the ocean. It made me realise that we can do anything if we put our minds to it. Even with all the damage and destruction, things can heal if we let them.
Oliver Sykes
We got sacked for the first time when we were just 18 and you realise that this whole industry is transient and changeable.
Declan Donnelly
I stuck around in Hollywood for too long. I was there a long time, and when I left, I was smart enough to realise that what I was leaving was not just the movie business. I wanted to get rid of the whole atmosphere.
Andre Previn
We always blame other people when things go wrong. For example, family to friends, you think they’ll stay by your side, and you realise they never do. But that’s life.
Benjamin Clementine
The ballooning budgets of Bollywood are getting out of hand, and it’s important for people to realise that you don’t need Rs 20 crore to make a good, commercially viable film.
Naseeruddin Shah
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
I think it’s something you learn over a period of time; you learn to be more comfortable within yourself, appreciative of what you’ve got and what you haven’t, you realise the talents you have and what you can do and you take on the chin the things that you have to. It’s part and parcel of growing up.
Jonny Bairstow
Bringing an end to the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians may help the young Arab generation to realise their aspirations. Israel is more than willing to offer our experience in building a modern economy in spite of limited resources to the whole region.
Shimon Peres
I do realise and understand very well on a profound level how lucky I am and what a privileged position it is and what it’s done ultimately for me, my family and my kids. But at the same time, there are moments in a man’s life when you just kind of want to feel somewhat normal.
Johnny Depp
Sometimes kids want a hamburger, but I’ll fill it up with a quinoa tikki. We eat makhana instead of popcorn; we even take it to the movie theater! I also mash up a lot of vegetables and put it in the aata, so they don’t realise they are eating vegetables.
Twinkle Khanna
I’m not striving for fame, that’s for sure. I don’t particularly like the idea of celebrity. I would like to be successful with my music, so I realise that there’s a balance to be made there.
Jamie Lawson
I’m not being naive; I realise there’s no such thing as a pure reading. But I’d rather keep myself as far out of it as I can.
Anne Michaels
Every James Brown cut makes a party get crazy. He’s the god of all music. I always play different wild remixes of his songs because people start bugging out when they realise what I’m playing.
Afrika Bambaataa
When I was a young player, I never dreamed of scoring five goals in a game – and in nine minutes is something else. And when it happened, it was incredible that there could ever be anything like that in the history of the game. It took me a couple of days to realise what I’d done.
Robert Lewandowski
I didn’t realise how devastating my behavior could be – looking back, I’m very embarrassed. I just buckled under the anxiety.
James Arthur
The rise of ISIS in Iraq is a wider threat to the stability of the Middle East and the West than many realise.
Maajid Nawaz
I did a film called ‘Floating’ early on that had a scene which was similar to a real-life situation I was in at the time. It involved me having a conversation with my father, who was dying. It was close to home and it made me realise acting wasn’t just making faces for the cameras, it was a real art form.
Norman Reedus
Seeing ‘The Gospel According to St. Matthew’ was an extraordinary experience because it made me realise that all the biblical stories and images I’d ignored as a child had sunk in by osmosis. I saw that my childhood was deeply rooted inside me.
Derek Cianfrance
I don’t find any real rivalries with crime and thriller writers anyway. That might sound a little Pollyanna, but for the most part the writers I compete with, if you want to use that word, it’s a pretty friendly rivalry. I think we all realise that the boat rises and sinks together.
Harlan Coben
I guess I found it useful to realise that everything is true at once, you know? You can pull back and say, ‘Everything will be fine,’ but you can also be in a situation and say, ‘Not everything is going to be fine.’
Sometimes an opponent stops breathing, and you realise something drastic has happened and they are trying not to let on. Or they go quiet, or they get fidgety. After a while you pick these things up and become more alert to them.
Viswanathan Anand
Many people in the West do not realise how oppressive some Muslim states are – both for men and for women. This is a cultural issue, not an Islamic one.
Hamza Yusuf
Every player needs that one or two innings to get the confidence in whatever format to realise that he’s good enough to be successful in whatever conditions or at whatever level.
K. L. Rahul
Owners lavish love on their pets, which is why so many go from non-aggressive pups to being out of control when they’re older. People just don’t realise their dog must respect them as leader of the pack.
Cesar Millan
We admit that we are like apes, but we seldom realise that we are apes.
Richard Dawkins
I do realise how incredibly lucky I am.
Hugh Bonneville
When you’re a young kid, you’ve burst onto the scene, everyone want sort be your friend, come out with you, and you don’t actually realise who wants to be there with you and who wants to be your friend.
Jack Grealish
Being alone on the moors is scary; as the rain clouds settle in, it makes you realise your place in nature.
Dave Davies
He can bring many things to Madrid, certainly titles. But Cristiano can’t do it alone because he doesn’t play by himself and that is something everyone must realise.
During the Sir Alex Ferguson years, you would see all those great players – Roy Keane, Paul Scholes, David Beckham, Ryan Giggs, Jaap Stam, Ruud van Nistelrooy and Cristiano Ronaldo, to name just a few – and you’d quickly realise why Old Trafford had an aura like nowhere else.
Peter Crouch
It’s not until they tell you you’re going to die soon that you realise how short life is.
Stefan Karl Stefansson
Let us lose none of their humble words, let us note their slightest gestures, and tell me, tell me that we will think of them together, now and later, when we realise the misery of the times and the magnitude of their sacrifice.
Georges Duhamel
I think people don’t realise that running a piece of code that verifies some conditions for a financial transaction, that by itself is a lot less work than verifying a cryptographic signature, and so even if the virtual machine is inefficient, the cryptographic signature is still going to dominate.
Vitalik Buterin
I’m going to be honest. Up until I started work on Bumble, the ‘f-word’ scared me. People would ask me if I was a feminist, and I didn’t know how to respond. The word seemed to put guys off, but now I realise, who cares?
Whitney Wolfe Herd
When you see how people in the developing world react and how they use a camera, you realise how narcissistic we are and how the filming of ourselves and thinking that we’re interesting enough to care about is odd.
Kevin Macdonald
Looking back now, I realise that belonging to the family of a labourer actually helped to prepare my body for boxing. There were many times when my family didn’t have enough food or warm clothing to go around. All this made me physically, as well as emotionally, tough.
Mary Kom
You realise that people do things differently to each other and, more and more, I realise that there’s no right or wrong. You can be a pop star and singing cabaret, and the entertainment of it is your flamboyance, it is your attitude.
Ben Howard
The first time I had money, I was extravagant, but then you realise it’s not just about that. If I lost it all tomorrow, it wouldn’t be me that’s hurt, it would be my babies. It would be more about people’s opinion of me that would concern me.
Rebecca Ferguson
After all, what is cinema? It is an interaction, a discussion that throws up questions and provides some solutions. The solutions might look simple, impractical or too fictionalised. But one must realise that viewers empathise with certain characters because they strike a chord with the viewers’ needs and frame of mind.
Suresh Gopi
I always think I love work, and I knew early on that I wanted to be an actress. Then I meet people who have truly dedicated their lives to acting, and I realise that I’m so completely in the back seat.
Natascha McElhone
Now, I realise that love is peace. Love is when you are with somebody, and it’s okay, and you don’t have to talk. Their presence is important.
Mahira Khan
There are so many people who are arguing or fighting over issues which don’t have much relevance. We must all realise it is not worth it.
Kalpana Chawla
Actors normally go to the gym to achieve a certain kind of fitness for a role but when you start playing a sport, then you realise that being athletically fit is a very different kind of fitness.
Tahir Raj Bhasin
A lot of times, we think we’re set out to do one thing, but then you realise that’s maybe not what’s best for you. So I’ve just learned to accept and embrace.
Greg Sestero
The system is very well regulated in L.A. It’s designed to disconnect you from whatever your idea of yourself is. If you’re among devils and they realise you’re not a devil like they are, there’s gonna be some great discomfort.
Terence Trent D’Arby
The threat of extinction is more real than many realise. And the damage done to elephants directly leads to destruction of the ecosystem.
Li Bingbing
Hamlet’ is a real ensemble piece: you have to realise that he’s just one part of the story.
Jonathan Pryce
When ‘Siruthai’ became a hit, there was suddenly a lot at stake. A lot of people were telling me what to do and what not to. But at some point, you realise that’s not the way to go. Good or bad, you need to be making your own choices.
I always want people to realise that whatever I do is a quality product. And that’s what’s really important to me.
Jay Sean
I always had long hair. When you lose it, you realise just how important it is to your identity.
Delta Goodrem
I do think that when you get older, you kind of learn not to judge because you realise that no one’s perfect, and we’re all fighting our own private demons.
Rebecca Ferguson
I realise every swimmer has a shelf life. No, I haven’t given any thought to when I will retire, but I also know I won’t be able to swim forever.
Chad le Clos
A lot of people don’t realise how competitive college sprinting is.
Christian Coleman
For a long time, I thought, ‘I’m not a TV presenter,’ but now I realise there’s no typical route into this business.
Rachel Riley
The next generation did not seem to be smart enough to realise that you have to work to be at the top and to stay at the top. You can have talent, but if you do not work hard it’s not going to happen.
Viv Richards
You have to realise that everyone that you are working with is important. It doesn’t matter where you are starting from; you are always going to run back into those people, and they are going to talk, and that’s going to be the base of whether you get good opportunities or not.
Gigi Hadid
The big takeaway I got from ‘Thelma & Louise’ was the reaction of women who had seen the movie being so profound, so different. It was overwhelming, and it made me realise how few opportunities we give women to feel excited and empowered by female characters, to come out of a movie pumped.
Geena Davis
The important thing is when you look at areas like physics and you realise that only one in five A-level students is a girl. We know it isn’t about aptitude.
Alice Roberts
In many ways, theatre is more rewarding for a writer. I used to think it was like painting a wall – that when the play is finished, it’s done – but now I realise it’s more like gardening; you plant the thing, then you have to constantly tend it. You’re part of a thing that’s living.
Lee Hall
Because I’m training so much, I always have a lot of energy. Once I’ve finished training, I come home and have some down time, and then I realise it’s 12:30 A.M. and I should have been in bed 2 hours ago. That can get annoying.
Anthony Joshua
Because I didn’t go to drama school, I didn’t start in the business with any toolbox apart from enthusiasm and instinct. I’d throw everything at a part and sometimes realise that I had hit my limits.
Hattie Morahan
I love England but everything that has happened makes me realise that I would be better off in the States.
Heather Mills
You have to be careful when you time a move to one of the biggest clubs. Occasionally, these young players do not realise what a good thing they are on to when they know that they will be playing every week.
Paul Scholes
You realise that there’s nothing more endearing than people who are desperately trying to be liked or trying to be the hero, you know? Who also probably just need a hug or want to impress their dad?
Taika Waititi
I am at the top of the pyramid, but I am not stupid, and I realise that one small step could see me fall down very quickly.
Patrice Evra
By nature, I’m a very positive person, and because I’m happy in myself, and in my life, and I’ve got a great husband, and beautiful children, and I have a job that I love that calls for a certain amount of emotional expression, I get to realise a lot of my dreams and aspirations.
Kate Winslet
When you are older, you realise that everything else is just nothing compared to painting and drawing.
David Hockney
Filming ‘It’s Not Rocket Science’ has made me realise I’m missing the part of my brain that warns me about danger because – even though the tasks are terrifying – I find it really exciting.
Rachel Riley
Your name or what you’ve done on the rugby pitch is not going to carry you through for the rest of your life. I realise I’m going to have to eventually do something else, and that does frighten me a little bit.
Brian O’Driscoll
I meet a lot of people who are awkward around me now. I was always embarrassed about that; the more attention I got, the less I wanted it and the more it would manifest in a physical way and I would be hunched over about it. I’m just starting to realise now that it’s not my problem, it’s somebody else’s problem.
Ben Howard
Ours is a divine journey; therefore, this journey has neither a beginning nor an end… This journey has a goal, but it does not stop at any goal, for it has come to realise that today’s goal is only the starting point of tomorrow’s journey.
Sri Chinmoy
Beijing was a huge slap in the face, and it forced me to look at myself. I have to realise that this is my life.
Katarina Johnson-Thompson
I know straight away if I can do better. It doesn’t take people to criticise me for me to realise it.
Jordan Pickford
I’ve done so much travelling in the past few years, and when you travel, you realise that we do actually have a cool, clean look in Scandinavia – it’s not just Denmark – which I think brings peace if you have it in your home.
Birgitte Hjort Sorensen
Sometimes I wonder if people realise how beautiful and honourable I find it to play for my country.
Memphis Depay
People think I don’t have experience in the second division, but we were promoted with Tenerife and Extremadura,and I was the coach of the reserve team with Real Madrid in the second division. I know what it means to go from this level to another level. I realise how difficult it is.
Rafael Benitez
It’s difficult to really assess what I’ve done right per say, but if I did have to point out, I’d say that I never really looked to have goals that will limit me. When one knows where he is going to or wants to end up, he/she actually doesn’t realise that the goal is more limiting, than liberating.
Amaal Mallik
Sport has made me realise that you have to be stubborn and to persevere to get the results. It might take longer in politics, but once you have the right goal and desire, you will reach it.
Vitali Klitschko
If you ever meet an actor who’s the child of actors, they’ll never tell you that they wanted to be a star. But what I did realise early on was that I just wanted to be in that tribe.
Jack Davenport
When I realise that I don’t have a lot of time left to do what I’m meant to do in terms of buying things, that’s when things begin to feel Christmassy for me – when I realise that time is against me, and I’ve got to act; otherwise, I’ll look ridiculous.
Matt Berry
I’m getting older; you realise you are on the countdown of what you are doing, so performing means more than it ever did to me.
Joe Cocker
Once people see Bitcoin and how it works, they realise this isn’t just a flash in the pan.
Roger Ver
I was raised to think that if you behaved badly with men, you went to hell. I realise now it is puritanical and not very adult.
Debbie Reynolds
I didn’t quite realise until we started to put together our first cut of ‘Wonderstruck’ how much time is spent with no words spoken whatsoever.
Todd Haynes
Something they taught us at drama school, and it’s taken me a long time to realise it’s true through practice, is that you can’t put judgments on a character you’re playing, especially while you’re doing it.
Karla Crome
Wind developers have realised the importance of transparent method of price discovery, which was demonstrated in the solar sector. They realise that bidding brings in efficiency, and tariff is right-sized.
Piyush Goyal
I was always made to feel that men were desirable because of their masculinity, and for a boy, being feminine was not something you should be proud of. But, I came to realise it’s OK for boys to be feminine, for girls to be masculine and we should all express ourselves however we want.
Courtney Act
It’s shocking when you start to grow up and realise that your parents had a life before you! But why would you? Sometimes you don’t really have a need to.
Sacha Dhawan
People don’t realise how much energy it takes to sing and hit all those high notes – but I always feel like I’ve done a marathon.
I’ve learnt an enormous amount from my children. Mostly that my agenda isn’t the most important thing in the world. For a while, I was trying to squeeze them into my life. And it was such torment! It makes you realise how selfish you are.
Toby Stephens
But I think as you grow up, you realise that actually, if you want to dress sexy there’s nothing wrong with that – it’s your prerogative as a woman to dress however you want.
Nina Nesbitt
My mother helped me to be who I am: to have strength and not to let people run all over me and yet to be humble; to realise that all of this that I have today could be gone.
Missy Elliott
I was 65 in May, and when I have just shaved, I see my father. I realise that I now have the same facial idiosyncrasies he had: little twitches here and there, mouth and nose movements, even the way he would tilt his head.
Rick Wakeman
Having my own family has made me realise there’s more to life than chasing the next job.
Natasha Little
Making people fear the expression of their own power is a very effective way of disempowering them. It is not just those who feel the frustration of being silenced: it also encompasses every person who has no idea of their own power to realise their visions because they have not seen this in action in their communities.
Deeyah Khan
I listen to other people’s stuff and, more and more, you realise how much is layered and how many different guitar parts there are.
Ben Howard
I think so much of your energy when you’re growing up is about becoming independent of your parents. And the older you get, the more you realise you’re actually so much part and parcel of the same kind of material.
Sam Neill
I didn’t realise that I was so accomplished on the guitar until someone said to me, ‘How do you do that?’ That someone was John Lennon. He asked me to teach him my technique.
The combination of pictures and words together can be really effective, and I began to realise in my career that unless I wrote my own words, then my message was diluted.
Galen Rowell
We do not realise that we are children of eternity. If we did, then success would be no success, and failure would be no failure to us.
Joseph Barber Lightfoot
For many years, I picked the wrong men, or they picked me. I think if you don’t feel attractive or worth something as a woman, you attract men who don’t really look after you. That’s what happened to me, but I realise that those relationships were like a journey, helping me to learn something about myself.
Lesley Nicol
People don’t necessarily realise that there can be just as much work on a quiet jacket as an overblown gown.
Giles Deacon
A lot of new signings find it difficult to settle because they don’t realise how fast and how physical it is and how fast the games come round.
David Seaman
I think there’s a great difference in consciousness in that same way in that when we’re young we read books for the story, for the excitement of the story – and there comes a time when you realise that all stories are more or less the same story.
John McGahern
They don’t really teach you how to be famous and a lot of people don’t realise that this game comes with a lot of traps. So I’m just looking after myself, looking after my health and making sure I don’t fall into those traps.
Israel Adesanya
When you experience bereavement at a youngish age, you suddenly realise that life is unjust and unfair, that bad things will happen, and you have to take that on board.
William Boyd
It’s sad that many don’t realise the need for consent in relationships, and this can be attributed to lack of education, male chauvinism and lack of open mindedness.
Shraddha Srinath
Most people travel outside of Australia. They don’t realise what we’ve got.
Nick Cummins
When you’re younger, you have a perfect plan for your life: I thought I would be engaged at 24, married at 26, have my first child at 28 and my second at 30. But as you get closer to each age, you realise it’s unfeasible.
Lucy Boynton
It is very difficult for middle-aged, institutionalised males who have done so well out of subsidy – and, fair play, given much back – to realise that there is a time to be a well-heeled revolutionary.
Melvyn Bragg
I am happiest now. There’s nothing like running out of time to make you realise you’re in the right skin, with the right person, and that the Apocalypse will happen with or without you.
Howard Jacobson
When I look back at the church I grew up in, I realise that nothing about its behaviour was very Christian. It was just a social club on Sundays where people would meet up with their mates.
James Corden
I think I had a fur coat that someone bought me from Portobello Market back in the 1960s, but I think as soon as you think about it, what it is you’re wearing, make that connection, then you realise it’s just not right. I don’t lecture people about it, but it’s not something I’d ever wear.
I am usually a fun-loving person, and I say most of the things in a jest. Sometimes I get in trouble, but over a period of time, I think people now realise that most of the things I say are in jest.
Ranveer Singh
Everyone chases a bit of what they say life is about: money, desire… But when you stop chasing, you realise life is a rhythm and it’s very peaceful, very quiet. You see, it’s quite a miracle.
Nick Nolte
It takes a certain amount of courage to tackle very hard problems in science, I now realise. You don’t know what the timescale of your work will be: decades or only a few years.
Venkatraman Ramakrishnan
The average British person would hear me doing my joke about Rebecca Adlington and realise there’s no malice in it. It was an off-the-cuff ad lib.
Frankie Boyle
For me, it’s my work – I have a job, and that job happens to be with insanely talented actors. At this stage, it’s normal to me. But when I meet new people, I realise, ‘Oh, yeah, it’s actually really strange. I have a very unique hobby.’
Angourie Rice
I did not realise just how passionate sci-fi fans are about their material.
Amanda Schull
If we are going to realise our ambition of ending the harmful practices of FGM and forced marriage, the role of young people in pushing for change is crucial. We also need to ensure that everyone, from government to civil society, is playing their part.
Theresa May
I’d like to think that maybe the average person is rational, and they realise that I’m not this crazy monster that, at times, I’ve been perceived to be.
James Arthur
People come up to me and they’re usually nice, but as it goes on you realise that some people aren’t nice. Some people are not nice at all.
James McAvoy
Looking back, I realise I had to grow up and be responsible at a very tender age.
Andie MacDowell
If I ever get chatted up, I never realise it. I just think men are being friendly.
Debra Stephenson
I very much hope that the United States will finally… realise that they can no longer act as the prosecutor, the judge, and the executioner in every part of the world and that they need to cooperate to resolve issues.
Sergei Lavrov
I’ve never really been very good at marriage. It’s one of my failures. I’ve tried my best, but I do realise the common denominator is me; it’s something I’m doing.
Len Goodman
I have never felt ‘fat;’ I just didn’t realise how unhealthy I was until I look back at pictures. In the moment, I felt so beautiful, and I remember walking down red carpets with my make-up done in a little sparkly dress, and I thought I was so cute.
Khloe Kardashian
You’ve got all that 130 km. of being totally focused, and as soon as you cross the line, it takes a few seconds to realise what’s happened.
Lizzie Armitstead
It only takes a room of Americans for the English and Australians to realise how much we have in common.
Stephen Fry
I think sometimes people say a comment and don’t realise they’re body shaming. I don’t think people are body-shamers, maybe just body-judgers. People will say throw-away comments.
Caroline Flack
As a kid I used to raise snakes. Obviously, my social life was a bit down at the time. But it took me a while to realise that with an interest like that people are going to think there’s something wrong with you.
Gary Larson
When you act you realise acting is not that difficult – the other technicalities are, like the mark, angle, light, etc. So you just not have to memorise your lines but keep in mind the mark, the angle and light. It is difficult.
My dream is to produce a generation of actors who realise what the function of an actor in a movie is supposed to be.
Naseeruddin Shah
We should realise that Hollywood is not obliged to write roles for Asian actors.
Kabir Bedi
When you have little kids, you lose friends because you’re so busy, but as they get older, you realise how important it is to have your girlfriends around.
Leslie Mann
I never travel without my Stetson, but the more I wear it the more I realise that no one wears hats any more. When I was a kid everybody wore hats, especially in Texas, but I get off the plane in Dallas now and I’m the only guy with a hat. It’s amazing.
Larry Hagman
People on the outside see a Neymar on the pitch, but that’s not him. People see him doing tricks and dribbles and think that he is only trying to enjoy himself, that he’s selfish and only thinks about himself. But when you share a dressing room with him you realise that it’s not the case.
Kylian Mbappe
Whenever a dope artist comes out of nowhere, the first thing you do is try and compare it to stuff until you realise that that artist is just them, and eventually those comparisons will stop.
Bryson Tiller
Until people realise benefits doesn’t mean scrounger, and austerity isn’t a fun middle-class way to grow your own vegetables, there’s still a lot of work to do.
Jack Monroe
We crossed the Himalayas in less than two minutes, and then you realise, ‘Oh My God, within an hour and a half, we have gone around the whole planet.’
Kalpana Chawla
If we’re gonna progress as a people we are going to realise that, as one of my favourite poets says, the other is a lie. There are no other people. Race is a social construct.
Saul Williams
I think I’m quite a clever player and that I realise there are times when I can be offensive but others when I must be more compact and work for the team, because that is what matters.
Andre Schurrle
I’m trying to get my kids – in particular, my step-daughter Mary, who’s 12 – to recommend music to me. You reach a certain age and realise you haven’t kept up, but I don’t want to fall behind.
Sandi Toksvig
As you get older, you know what you’re good at and you know what you’re not so good at. Your ego comes out of it, and then you realise you can’t play every game, there’ll be certain games where you won’t be so affected… so you’ve just got to concentrate on what you are.
Adebayo Akinfenwa
I didn’t realise I lived in the ghetto until we moved out.
Michael Pena
Becoming a parent gives you access to a whole world of feeling. It gives you a much stronger sense of life and death: becoming a father made me realise my own mortality.
Laurence Fox
I love the company of actors, but the crazier it gets, the more I’ve come to realise how valuable my time is with my friends who work on the land or are builders or, you know, make music. Work in offices. Run shops.
Andrea Riseborough
There is no feeling of regret spending time on the campaign. I think working closely with Kalam made me realise how simple he is in life.
I realise that I have made quite a few of the same mistakes with my kids that my dad made: not so much in trying to determine their lives for them but in terms of trying to discipline them.
Naseeruddin Shah
The reality of nostalgia is nowhere better invoked than at the end of Tarkovsky’s ‘Solaris.’ When the camera pans away from Kelvin embracing his father on the rain-soaked steps of his dacha, we realise that the scene is yet another of the simulations produced by the inscrutable planet.
Mark Fisher
I meet young people who know me and are familiar with my stuff. They know the package. They might have cherry-picked five or six key tunes. That’s how it seems to work. I sometimes wonder if they realise they are not getting the whole context.
David Byrne
It takes a true encounter to realise that real animals, wild animals, have all but passed from our lives.
John Burnside
I didn’t realise how much I was alienating people. I would constantly refuse to go out when friends would call. At one point, I didn’t realise I was at home for a week.
Ileana D’Cruz
I thought I’d reached the bottom a few times, but then I’d realise there was another 30 floors of despair below that.
Trent Reznor
With young people, I always say, ‘You’re not doing anyone any favours by withholding your power.’ As women, we do that a lot because we are afraid of being misunderstood or perceived as too strong. But the older I’m getting, the more I realise you have to let that go.
Idina Menzel
What we don’t realise when we watch a normal film is how many times someone has run in just before a shot quickly to wipe away that sweaty moustache. You never see a normal spot, a bag under the eye or an unplucked eyebrow, because that’s not how Hollywood works.
Florence Pugh
Working with anyone is easy as long as you realise that your collaborator has the understanding and experience even if he is younger to you.
Javed Akhtar
It doesn’t matter how young or old you are, and whatever jersey you wear, you realise the derby games prick up the hairs on the backs of people’s necks.
Alun Wyn Jones
One of the biggest guys I worked with was Sean Connery. People like Sean, Michael Caine, Denzel Washington, they’ve been going for a long time, and not for nothing. They want to get this job right, and they realise the weight of responsibility on their shoulders.
Liam Cunningham
Football puts everything at your fingertips. And I was raised in a way that focused everything on looking after your family. Faith really helped me realise that the temptations that you have on hand will give you joy, enjoyment, whatever, but only for a short while. And after that, it is all gloom.
Edinson Cavani
English football gives other leagues an advantage. There are some traditions you can’t change, I realise that. Boxing Day is non-negotiable. But you can’t play nine games in December and nine in January. You have to stop at some point.
Manuel Pellegrini
The Olympics was always my be-all and end-all, so when I won, it was the best feeling in the world. But I didn’t realise how much it would affect me mentally. All that pressure. I was only 19; I still didn’t know everything about taekwondo, I wasn’t experienced. I just did amazing on that day and won.
Jade Jones
As you get older, you realise you can’t worry about mistakes; you just worry about playing, and I’ve been doing that.
Alun Wyn Jones
As a player, you get to the stage where you realise that you are not 25 anymore – and can’t play the way you used to. The intelligent players adapt – and Steven Gerrard has the ability to do that. He is an excellent passer of the ball, possesses an intelligent football brain, and has great vision.
Andrea Pirlo
Frontiersman ideas of individualism stand exposed as we realise just how much our actions impact others.
Rohini Nilekani
As I grow older, I realise that just because I’m so obsessed with the truth, it doesn’t mean that everyone else in my life is equally comfortable with it.
Pooja Bhatt
When you go through heartbreak, you just do the things that get you by. Eventually, you realise it’s about making the most of life.
Britney Spears
When I retired first time around, injury had beaten me, and I hated that. Now I realise I’m no longer good enough. And I can handle that. It’s fine that I’m not good enough.
Andrew Flintoff
Niko Kovac had to understand the system inside Bayern, to realise that this is a very different club to Eintracht Frankfurt, where he was before.
Lothar Matthaus
By definition, an actor’s life is a recipe for regret. There are always roads you could have taken. But I’ve lived long enough to realise that each road has its own rewards.
Elizabeth McGovern
I used to play as a No. 10, in Bilbao, in most of the games, but when I came to United, when you come to one of the biggest clubs in the world, you realise that if you want to be a No. 10, you have to score 10, 12 goals per season.
Ander Herrera
Work less than you think you should. It took me a while to realise there was a point each day when my creativity ran out and I was just producing words – usually lousy ones – for their own sake. And nap: it helps to refresh the brain, at least mine.
Amy Waldman
I have always loved ‘Stig of the Dump.’ I think reading that book made me officially realise that I was a reader.
Eoin Colfer
I didn’t realise how much of a personal vendetta Dominic Cummings had against the establishment.
Gina Miller
Once you have done with school, you realise that it is just a smaller version of life, and really I have felt that I should have been an adult since I was aged about five.
Kristen Stewart
Punk may have helped me find my voice and made me realise that I had the right to have one, but it was riot grrrl that helped me sustain that voice and shout a little louder.
Kate Nash
People think we’re machines; they don’t realise that behind a bad run, there’s almost always a personal problem, some family issue. You have feelings; you make mistakes. You’re a person.
Alvaro Morata
My hope is that people experience the music and, in that, something works in them, that they realise how exceptional they are. Maybe that it inspires them to do something great in their own lives.
Lauren Daigle
I remember hitting the ball, and I didn’t even realise where it went, and then I turned over, and I see the official bending down holding his eye.
Denis Shapovalov
When you are young you don’t always realise how full of doubts everybody is.
Helen Dunmore
When I was at drama school, people weren’t taking pictures of themselves every five minutes. So I didn’t realise how I looked. It was only when people started taking pictures of themselves that I looked at myself and thought: ‘Oh my God, I look really miserable.’ Even when I’m happy I look sad.
Diane Morgan
If I’ve done a gig and at the end there are people waiting for autographs, they always seem nervous, but they probably don’t realise that I’m more nervous than them. I get very embarrassed.
Amy Macdonald
You realise the responsibility of carrying a film on your shoulders when people are investing money in you and they recognise the hard work you have to put in.
Vir Das
When I was a young boy I wanted to play for Newcastle United, I wanted to wear the number nine shirt and I wanted to score goals at St James’ Park. I’ve lived my dream and I realise how lucky I’ve been to have done that.
Alan Shearer
I realise I’m known for doing big, very serious cases, but fundamentally, any lawyer will tell you that even the most complex trials come down to the same questions. Are people telling porky pies? Are bank accounts dodgy? Is someone trying to get one over on you? It’s my job to listen and then decide.
Robert Rinder
There is a need for aloneness, which I don’t think most people realise for an actor. It’s almost having certain kinds of secrets for yourself that you’ll let the whole world in on only for a moment, when you’re acting. But everybody is always tugging at you. They’d all like sort of a chunk of you.
Marilyn Monroe
In the beginning, everybody that gets to work with me, thinks I’m nice. But three weeks later, they hear a bell ringing. Then they realise I meant everything I said during that first week. It’s not my fault people are not taking me serious from the first moment.
Andrew Eldritch
As I grow older and meet more and more people, I realise how lucky I am to have had a stable family environment. Both my parents had loving families but unstable upbringings, so they wanted us to have a more stable situation.
Jamie Cullum
I sort of thought acting was just about arranging your face into emotions. I didn’t realise it was about actually allowing yourself to feel the feelings, then letting your face follow. That was a big learning curve.
Mae Martin
Artists realise that mathematicians have a way of looking at the world that can make them see things differently.
Marcus du Sautoy
Women are not stupid, but they were not clever enough to realise that feminism did not bring freedom, but the opposite. That’s why I’m glad feminism is dead.
Michel Houellebecq
The closer you are to people, the more you realise what has happened to them.
Jennifer Lynch
Is there anything more useless than a crouton? I sometimes wake up in the small hours with a start and realise that what’s roused me is an overpowering urge to visit violence on its originator.
Will Self
I always wanted to become a football player, and I thank my parents, as they helped me so much to realise this dream. They always supported me on my path.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan
The more I draw and write, the more I realise that accidents are a necessary part of any creative act, much more so than logic or wisdom. Sometimes a mistake is the only way of arriving at an original concept, and the history of successful inventions is full of mishaps, serendipity and unintended results.
Shaun Tan
I realise that certain actors project their own image onto the screen – those who are the same on as they are off. But I’ve never had the necessary statistics to be able to do that sort of thing, and so, anyway, I always wanted to be a character actor.
Peter Sellers
There were many people who tried to insult me and never appreciated me in the beginning. The biggest platform for me I would say more than South Industry, I will say was ‘Bigg Boss’. They made me realise who I am and what all I can do in my life.
Nikki Tamboli
In my early 30s, I started to realise I was avoiding something on a personal level, but also as a writer. I was in denial about who I was, and was trying to be someone who I was not.
Ayad Akhtar
A lot of people don’t realise I came out of the Smoky Mountains with a load of songs.
Dolly Parton
I’ve probably understood men too well. I realise they are predatory by nature, and I have a certain acceptance of the male animal.
Jacqueline Bisset
The beauty of a relationship is when you get used to a person; it is not sudden. It is just a process, and you don’t realise when love happens.
Riteish Deshmukh
Words are more powerful than some noises. Noises won’t last long. Lyrics are so important, and people don’t realise that.
Billie Eilish
The first thing you realise very quickly when you decide to do an acoustic version of an electric song is your solo either becomes either very truncated, very different, or non-existent, because even if you play a clean solo, it’s different with the Kryptonite… with the acoustic.
Joe Bonamassa
I have always thought it was a terrible shame that the women’s movement didn’t realise how much easier it was to reach people by making them laugh than by shaking a fist and saying, ‘Don’t you see how oppressed you are?’
Nora Ephron
Guest roles are how you get initiated into the industry. It’s fun. Over the course of a few years you realise you’ve done many shows. You get a chance to prove yourself, and that’s how you get jobs because of people who have worked with you in the past and trust you.
Sasha Roiz
I realise, of course, that my cluttered existence is deeply unfashionable.
Kate Garraway
I thought all good art is you doing exactly what you want to see. I didn’t realise that’s not even what I really like about art. Bands I liked weren’t doing just what they want to do: they were finding their common ground with them and me.
James Acaster
You have to realise that I am the third out of six children, and I am raised with very strong core values and a very strong upbringing. I always put myself in other people’s shoes.
Angela Ahrendts
I feel Scottish when with English people, and when I’m with Scottish people, I realise I’m English.
Nina Conti
When you work with a great director, you realise you are far from being a director.
Barkhad Abdi
I did realise that when you talk with a straight face, you come across as someone bolder than somebody who bats her eyelids a lot.
Shraddha Srinath
The bottom line is people are people, and the sooner we realise that, the better off things are going to be.
Dennis Haysbert
The thing you don’t realise is that every time you head the ball, your brain shakes. Every single time. Have you ever headed a ball badly and seen stars for a couple of seconds? That’s your brain shaking. Let’s be honest: that can’t be healthy, can it?
Peter Crouch
My mother hid the struggle from us children. She complained about her salary, and she had a tough time. Although she became a headmistress, she still had to do a lot of sewing. The more I think about her, the more remarkable I realise she was. And she understood straight away when I said that I wanted to write.
Derek Walcott
You can do the same thing with $20 million that you would do with $50 million. So at a certain point in your life and in your career, you realise that it’s not about the money.
Kevin Hart
Almost 70 per cent of your fitness battle is won the day you realise what your body needs and when. I’ve made my own diets, and I decide for myself what works for me.
Arjun Rampal
As captain you’re involved immensely. You get worked up, you get carried away. It slowly dies down once you’re a player. You realise you’ve to take the back seat.
Sourav Ganguly
One must realise his Self in order to open the store of unalloyed happiness.
Ramana Maharshi
I think the one thing that’s changed over time is that I’ve come to realise, as a fiction writer, the fact that I don’t think it will work out, doesn’t mean that it actually won’t.
Jennifer Egan
I now realise I’m a great actor.
Noma Dumezweni
I realise things aren’t going to go my way every week. Of course they’re not. But the main thing is to give your all and enjoy.
Jack Wilshere
The trolls don’t realise that they are actually helping me become more popular, and in return, I am helping them grab a celebrity’s attention. I think my trolls and I are very good friends.
Taapsee Pannu
Porsche is the last bastion of cars for petrolheads. So when they start making electric cars, you realise the world really is changing.
Chris Harris
I hear my own daughters talking about big companies polluting the environment, and then I realise they are talking about companies of which one I am running. But when I tell them to read the things we are doing, then they realise we are doing good things. But millennials are really a great lot.
Indra Nooyi
In my 20s, life seemed endless. At 49, I’ve had a chance to see how dark life can be, and I am far more aware of the constraints of time than when I wrote ‘The Kite Runner.’ I realise there is only a limited number of things I can do.
Khaled Hosseini
I got to do Disney Sunday movies. I got to do a TV pilot there. And it really helped me to realise that I needed to not just be a writer, but a producer, to see my work up on the screen the way I wanted it to look and play.
Chris Carter
Hundreds of people who’ve never written before send in ‘Dr. Who’ scripts. They may have good ideas, but what they fail to realise is that writing for TV is incredibly complicated. They have no idea how difficult it is and what the financial commitment is.
Douglas Adams
When we went to America, Robin Williams came to the gig, and Mike Myers had lunch with us and wanted to write a film for us. We’re idiots – we turned it down. I think we were just sick of each other at that point. When you get famous, it takes some time to realise it isn’t going to be good.
Noel Fielding
It was good to be a kid because I did not realise all the things that came with the success. Going to the Games, I was asked what I expected to do.
Nadia Comaneci
Michael Owen’s wonder goal against Argentina in 1998 was one defining memory, and as a Sunderland supporter, I remember crying my eyes out after they lost that play-off final against Charlton. Much as that hurt, it made me realise how much I wanted to play the game.
Steph Houghton
When you work for someone, you never realise how much you are learning. It is only when you leave and you reflect back on life.
Marco Pierre White
When I was younger, 15 years or 20 years seemed like a really long time. But, as you journey though life, you don’t realise where the years disappear.
When you’re around enormously successful people you realise their success isn’t an accident – it’s about work.
Ryan Tedder
The Conservatives must realise that being sceptical is different from being phobic in what is an interdependent world.
John Bercow
One goes on with the blithe belief that who you really are is transparent to everybody. Then you realise, with some horror, that in fact it’s not. So all you can do is keep muddying the waters a bit.
Rosamund Pike
Mumbai Indians will strive to build on our proud legacy of giving youngsters a platform to showcase their talent and realise their true potential.
Nita Ambani
Of course, people have tried to stereotype me… But it’s very short-lived if you realise that you’re only as new as your newest film… You have to look beyond the period of initial reactions and recognise that there’s a bigger body of work and an effort to do something bigger.
Kalki Koechlin
I think as much as people talk about Scotland as being a place where it’s raining all the time it’s a fantastic country. Considering it’s such a small country you have to realise how successful it’s been in the world of motor sport.
Susie Wolff
I don’t feel like a very feminine woman sometimes. I feel manly. When I was in my twenties I would say I was a masculine girl and now I realise the whole idea of femaleness is a construct. I’m a boyish girl, who talks over people and I do a boyish job.
Sara Pascoe
As you get older, you realise that your identity becomes more important – the environment in which you have grown is actually part of who you are just as much as your family or your school.
Marianne Elliott
No one can be in any doubt that Britain is becoming more like Europe, though few in an increasingly economically illiterate media seem to realise it.
Andrew Neil
When the writing is going really well, whole days and weeks go by, and I suddenly realise I have all these unpaid bills and, my God, I haven’t unpacked, and the suitcase has been sitting there for three weeks.
George R. R. Martin
For the rest of my life, I realise people are going to ask questions of me, but at the end of the day, I am a clean athlete, and I have worked hard.
Lizzie Armitstead
The irony is that the more specific you are in the portrayal of character, the more like other people you are. In the same way, the more you think about how alone you are in this life, you realise how much a brother and sister everyone else is.
William Hurt
There are some things I feel the need to pussyfoot around that I would like to… give vent to. But I realise the press isn’t the place to do that.
Trudie Styler
I am a Muslim, yes, but I am also very English. People don’t realise how proud I am to be representing my country or being from Birmingham.
Moeen Ali
A lot of young girls don’t realise how diverse the career opportunities are in games development. Many think that you need elite math skills and a vast knowledge of all things tech to work in games, and haven’t thought about avenues like design, producing, art, writing or composing.
Rhianna Pratchett
Seriously, though, I realise I set the bar really high with Tenacious D – one of the great, great bands of our time.
Kyle Gass
We all ran barefooted on the dusty roads in our past, but now the Emperor wears shoes, and it is our responsibility to ensure that the barefooted child and the doting mother are afforded a holistic environment to realise their dreams and ambitions.
Anthony Carmona
Some ministers are fond of talking about a return to Victorian values. We must realise that those Victorian values are being expressed by some of the younger people in this society in shameful and disturbing disregard for other members of their generation who are not as fortunate as they are in having a job.
Charles Kennedy
The artists realise it will take time. It is an upliftment process.
Eddy Grant
When you have been working so hard to reach a specific goal and then you realise that ambition, it’s not always easy to raise yourself for another objective.
Toni Kroos
I realise I have inadvertently become a source of inspiration and hope for people in India simply by the fact that I grew up there, went to my local university, but could go on to do well internationally.
Venkatraman Ramakrishnan
I don’t seek discomfort. But, very often, you realise that what you fear is actually quite ephemeral; something’s different, something’s unfamiliar; therefore, it must be worse.
Michael Palin
People are surprised when they realise that I have sung ‘Tinku Jiya’ as they felt it was not my genre. As a musician, till the time I don’t try something, I don’t refuse it. I like challenging jobs.
Javed Ali
I didn’t realise how much I ate Mexican food, like tacos and burritos three times a week, until I came to Europe and couldn’t find any.
Washed Out
I think I’m rather young and sprightly, but then you see pictures of yourself and think, ‘Who is that old man?’ and I realise I’m not as young as I thought I was.
Hugh Grant
I was a good but not super serious student until about 10th grade, until I was about 14 or 15. Then I started to realise how competitive the world is. I started to meet kids who were more high-performing.
Sal Khan
We should all expect to be able to die with comfort, dignity and love. Our society does not lack the wealth to realise this aspiration, but the willpower.
Owen Jones
For the parents of the youth of Africa, please give your kids a chance to realise their dreams.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
Anyone who is seriously interested in me would usually do a little more homework and realise that the extreme criticisms are almost exclusively ideologically based.
Maurice Strong
Success, I’ve come to realise, is fleeting so you shouldn’t value it too much.
Marina and the Diamonds
You got to realise that when I was 20 years old, I had a house, a Mercedes, a Corvette and a million dollars in the bank before I could buy alcohol legally.
Dr. Dre
I did realise more than ever, after the stabbing, that tennis is a business – a tough business.
Monica Seles
Once people start to realise that colour is just that, it’s just a colour, then things got a bit smoother.
Ricky Whittle
I write something that I believe I’ve made up, and it’s only when a friend later points it out to me that I realise I’ve been writing about myself again.
Jo Nesbo
When I was a kid, I wanted to be serious, like Daniel Day-Lewis. No one really dreams of being a comic actor, do they? Now I realise how stupid that is – and it’s because comic acting isn’t taken seriously enough. It’s a discipline. You know instantly – either you’re funny and getting the laughs, or you’re not.
Chris O’Dowd
When you split up with someone, someone that you’re seriously in love with, it takes a lot of time before you even realise that you’re upset. You know? It just hits you.
Pete Doherty
I meet people who are famous, and it’s made me realise that fame has huge lifestyle disadvantages. I’m nervous about that. I don’t want to become a celebrity.
Tom Hollander
I always knew it was going to be difficult when I got beyong 40, but I didn’t realise it would start at 35.
Greta Scacchi
Of course I don’t like the fact that my wife goes to the supermarket and there are photographers. But I realise that the press attention is the same wherever you go.
Luis Suarez
People don’t realise how difficult it is to work with people day in and day out that know absolutely nothing.
Abby Lee Miller
I have played plenty of matches where I thought I had left everything on the field and given a game my all, but what I have come to realise since I retired and began coaching – 90 minutes on the field do not compare to life as a manager.
Fabio Cannavaro
I realise few people get to live the life they always wanted, but I’m so neurotic, I don’t really think about it. I’m too busy thinking, ‘I hope I don’t screw up my next scene.’
Charlie Hunnam
I was fortunate enough to play in a number of finals, and I can still remember waking with butterflies in my stomach. It is at moments like those you realise why you fell in love with football in the first place.
Alex Scott
I came to realise that Darwinian evolution had no explanation of me as an experiencing self.
John Eccles
I don’t know about the hair. I’ve had it since I was a kid, and when I look at myself in the mirror, it looks quite normal. But then when I look at myself in a photo, I realise that my hair is basically bigger than my head! There’s quite a lot of interest in my hair, which is strange, as for me, it’s normal!
Erik Hassle
Few realise that English poetry is rather like the British constitution, surrounded by pompous precedents and reverences.
Austin Clarke
A car is a killing machine. It’s like waving a loaded gun. People don’t realise how dangerous they are.
Victoria Pendleton
There’s a line that runs between everyone and their ancestors, and you cannot sever that. Maybe disassociate from those ideas but not how you are connected to them. But, you can realise how you’ve benefited and change how you raise your kids.
Dee Rees
Working backstage as a teenager made me realise there’s not much glamour in this profession – just lots of hard work. That’s a good thing to learn early on.
Joseph Fiennes
And you realise you’re doing a public service in making people happy – as a musician you can give people something a doctor, a lawyer, a politician cannot give them that. It’s not scientific. It’s spiritual – a good feeling. And although you don’t know them personally, the audience are like your friends.
Billy Ocean
My dad’s a very sensitive man, but as the archetypal rebellious teenager, I didn’t realise that.
Jo Brand
‘Mayabazar’ was the film I immensely loved as a kid. Only when I became a filmmaker about 20 years later did I realise its technical marvel and what a great epic it was. I and my visual effects supervisor, while making ‘Yamadonga,’ took two days to understand the magnification shot of Ghatothkatcha’s persona.
S. S. Rajamouli
It is always helpful to us to fix our attention on the God-ward aspect of Christian work; to realise that the work of God does not mean so much man’s work for God, as God’s own work through man.
Hudson Taylor
It’s brilliant having loads of girls running after you. It’s also a shock when you realise just how much attention you’re getting. Eventually, you start to think, ‘I’d rather settle down and be normal.’
Joe Gilgun
One place I’d love to go is Augusta. My uncle’s been to watch the Masters a couple of times and said you don’t realise on television how hilly it is. When you walk the course, you’re hiking up hills, but on TV it all seems so manicured.
James Milner
There’s something that happens around 27 and 28, when people start coupling off more aggressively or changing their lives according to what their economic prospects are, and not keeping themselves on par with the group – you realise suddenly that they’re not your family. And I think that’s very painful.
Greta Gerwig
It’s incredible, ridiculous really, isn’t it? You realise you can make more money on the golf tour in one week than some people make in a lifetime.
Rory McIlroy
I don’t mean to be overly sensitive or anything like that, but you just have to take a minute in every day, and just reflect on where you are, and just realise what you’ve got, because you just never know where the next huge change in your life is going to come from.
Corey Taylor
Some days you realise that everything is a burden, both physically and mentally. That it’s not about fun, but you have to deliver without a doubt. Even if you are injured.
Per Mertesacker
Even if I stumble on to the absolute truth of any aspect of the universe, I will not realise my luck and instead will spend my life trying to find flaws in this understanding – such is the role of a scientist.
Brian Schmidt
It is up to God to reveal a religion, but up to us to understand and realise it.
Abdolkarim Soroush
It’s the little things you remember. My mam, Sue, would take me to training in a taxi when I was a kid if Dad, who is a builder, had to work on a Saturday morning. You look back at the stuff like that and realise the sacrifices were all worth it.
Jordan Pickford
I realise that every time my face is on TV or I’m playing in a tournament, that I am a role model for a lot of people and a lot of kids do look up to me. I try to do my best in that regard and put myself across as honestly and as modestly as possible, as well.
Rory McIlroy
Training and playing are different things. I’ve noticed it. If you come in and you realise after six minutes that it is tiring, then that is a clear difference to training.
Mats Hummels
hooting for ‘Savdhaan India’ in Mathura made me realise that no matter what place you come from be it a holy city, crime still prevails.
Siddharth Shukla
I realise that there’s something about fantasy, whether it’s written by the Grimm Brothers or J. K. Rowling or Thorne or J. M. Barrie, that it gets closer to the human experience than realism every could.
John Tiffany
I really can’t write fantasy. I cannot invent a world which does not exist. And I can’t read fantasy either. As soon as I realise I’m reading a book that hasn’t got its roots in a reality I can comprehend, I switch off.
Michael Morpurgo
When you grow up in a place, you always think it’s mundane. Then you travel around and live in different places, and you realise that you’ve got it the wrong way ’round.
Irvine Welsh
Don’t we realise that the student of today is the executive of tomorrow?
Anthony Carmona
When I wake up on a Monday morning and I realise I don’t have to go and work at the civil service, I really think I’ve won.
Paul Merton
Once Africans realise we can just fight and get paid for it, we can do that and still provide for ourselves and our families and countries? We’re going to flood the market.
Kamaru Usman
When The Queen invited the Olympians to the Palace, I was first in line to speak to her. She said she watched the Games and how happy she was, how impressed she was with the boxing. She told me she’d watched my fight and enjoyed it. I didn’t realise the effect I’d had on the whole country.
Nicola Adams
As the years go by, you have to realise when it is the right time to do something different.
Andrea Pirlo
When you’re going into companies and you’re secret filming, I didn’t realise the amount of protection that you need legally before you can do just the slightest thing.
Joe Lycett
For a nation that spends a lot of time talking about the weather, we don’t seem to realise just how much sunshine we actually get. Maybe that’s because we tend to concentrate on the negative aspects.
Dick Strawbridge
I have that precious commodity – freedom. I can live my life a day at a time, and I am open to whatever the next day brings. I know I sound as if I have been off with some guru in India, but I haven’t. I’ve come to realise the value of being able to decide for oneself.
Cherie Lunghi
One of the things I love about Africa is the amount of dignity and respect and humility you see all the time. You don’t realise how often you’re disrespected until you are surrounded by respect.
Jill Scott
I had to go to an audition for a rather large West End musical set on a Greek island. I didn’t realise that you had to go with sheet music to give to the pianist. I took a Mark Bolan CD, a small ghetto blaster and then sang along. It was absolutely appalling.
Mel Giedroyc
Robots are great. I am saying that now so that when a future civilization of robots takes us captive, they will search through the ‘Guardian’ web archive and realise I said, ‘Robots are great,’ and then they’ll choose to save me.
Matt Haig
The NSA is already bugging everything that everybody does. Each time there’s a new revelation from Snowden, you realise the extent of it.
Geoffrey Hinton
I realise I might pass down an incurable illness to my son, but living based on what might go wrong seems like less and less of a life as I get older. The one thing I can try to control is whether I teach my child to be ruled by anxiety, by fear. That’s something that gets passed down, too.
Victor LaValle
It’s always tough when you lose – you’ve worked so hard for that moment and it hasn’t gone the way you wanted. But you have to realise there’s always a bright side, you have to pick yourself up and get ready for the next game.
Maria Sharapova
People need to realise that their governments are sitting on finite resources that will run out one day. Subsidising power and water is not an ideal solution and does not help reduce consumption. We need to educate people, from a young age, about the importance of conserving energy in their daily lives.
Joe Kaeser
With experience, you suddenly realise you know how to do things or that you’ve done something like this before. And I think as you get more confident, you can sit back and try and weigh up the options of doing something or not doing something.
Joanna Coles
It is just the start of your professional career and you have to handle it properly and realise that it is not always like that. There will be ups and downs. It is important that you keep humble, keep working hard and see it as the first step on a long journey.
Hector Bellerin
You realise you have to be physically strong when you come to the Premier League because it is a very intensive league.
Divock Origi
I feel like I wasted my time in my twenties. When you are beginning to realise your potential you wish you’d realized it earlier.
Spencer Matthews
Once you realise that heroes die, everything becomes that much more terrifying.
David Benioff
In my 20s I was such a serious, boring-looking person. I would never do my nails. I never even danced. But I was taught by the women. They had gone through hell, but they would dance and sing. I came to realise I can’t argue for a happy world if I am not happy myself.
Zainab Salbi
For my art GCSE, I did a screen print of the Queen’s head that was basically an Andy Warhol rip-off, but I didn’t realise.
Alexa Chung
If I had my life to live all over again, I really think I would have been a fit person. Looking around me, I realise that the men and women who walked and ran and swam and played sport look better and feel better than the rest of us.
Maeve Binchy
As a novelist, you have to realise that the novel and the film have to live separate lives. They’re just different, like your kids, even if they look alike.
Don Winslow
You experience other cultures to give you a kind of shock that makes you look at your own culture. You appreciate it more as a result of being out of it, but you also realise there are some things lacking in your culture.
Mem Fox
I used to take it much more to heart. Now I realise that negativity has almost everything to do with the person delivering it and very little to do with you yourself.
KT Tunstall
The wonderful thing about maths is it’s a totally logical subject, and a pathway has been marked out. I think a lot of these things can be crystallised in something quite essential, that people can get. If I can’t explain it, I realise that’s probably because I don’t completely understand it myself.
Marcus du Sautoy
Electricity is a wonderful thing. Do you realise that if we didn’t have electricity, we’d be watching television by candle light?
Tommy Cooper
The battalion, the whole battalion was affected by the two killed just within a week of being there, and I think that that pulled everybody up to make them realise that this was a very serious business.
Peter Scott
I have got to the point in my life when a lot of people I know have died or are dying, so I realise that somewhere outside the pearly gates is a queue, shuffling nearer and nearer to the celestial box office.
Barry Humphries
You don’t realise how cool your culture is until you get out of that phase of trying to fit in.
Tomi Adeyemi
I think sometimes players must have a wake-up call before they realise they are back in African football.
Jay-Jay Okocha
There used to be a huge hole in my life that I wrote many albums about. I didn’t realise it was a wife-and-daughter-shaped hole. They’ve plugged that gap. Everything I do, I do for them now. When daddy goes to work, it’s daddy going to work, not Rob going to work. I feel like there’s a purpose to everything.
Robbie Williams
I started to realise I am not as strong as others, and I can’t muscle someone off the ball who is twice the size of me. So I have altered my game, playing on the half-turn, for example, and it’s made me a much better player.
Craig Bellamy
My life experience has made me realise what’s important and what is not.
Andrew Strauss
I really didn’t realise until I got back the work that goes into a performance. You’re like an athlete – if you haven’t been practising things tighten up. I had to do a lot of practice work, but I got through it. Even when I was 21 I would have a 40-minute nap on the day of a show, and I will still do that.
Michael Crawford
I realise I am stepping into the shoes of a hugely respected editor in the shape of Alexandra Shulman, someone who has chosen to leave at the top of their game with a legacy of 25 years of success.
Edward Enninful
New York is the place that made my and other artists’ dreams come true by giving us a chance to realise our ideas and concepts. It was a great place for making a presentation of artistic creation.
Yayoi Kusama
I don’t have any terrific self-esteem issues but I do sometimes realise I’ve been too lucky and that I’m over-praised. It makes me nervous. I have this sense of being overrated.
Christopher Hitchens
