A fine memoir is to a fine novel as a well-wrought blanket is to a fancifully embroidered patchwork quilt. The memoir, a logical creation, dissects and dignifies reality.

All of the people who work in the kitchen with me go out into the forests and on to the beach. It’s a part of their job. If you work with me you will often be starting your day in the forest or on the shore because I believe foraging will shape you as a chef.
Adversity, and perseverance and all these things can shape you. They can give you a value and a self-esteem that is priceless.

I’m very fond of the British cinema. I’m a big fan of Martin Campbell and Daniel Craig. I actually find Daniel very inspirational, especially on the physical side of things. He really inspired me to get back into shape when I started to add on a few pounds. I think he’s a great role model.
‘Frankenstein’ did not invent the fear of science; the novel found its audience because it dramatized anxieties that already existed. Although popular entertainment can, over the long run, shape public perceptions, it becomes popular in the first place only if it addresses preexisting hopes, fears, and fascinations.
Acting is like going to the gym. You have to keep yourself in shape and concentrate on your core.
I am always in much better shape when I am doing a Broadway show because you have the eight shows a week to kind of keep the body clean and perfect in a sense, you know? For instance, I always eat much better when I am in a show because you can’t have dairy – for your voice.

I’m not in shape.
The novelist has a responsibility to adhere to the facts as closely as possible, and if they are inconvenient, that’s where the art comes in. You must work with intractable facts and find the dramatic shape inside them.

I skate now for fun and to keep myself in shape.
Planets’ orbits are elliptical. It’s a very pleasing shape.
My body’s feeling it a little bit. But one good thing, my back is in good shape, and that’s my main concern. I know that my legs are going to take awhile to get back to where I was a few years ago, but as long as my back is solid, I feel that I can play many years.
Sometimes writing has to be forced. In starting out, the shape and timbre and texture of what is to come is an uncertain chimera shimmering from behind a veil. You must not wait, loiter, dilly-dally. You must force your way painfully through.
I’m black, and I don’t support Donald Trump in any way, shape, or form.

Without my Vulcan cat suit, Frankenstein wig and pointed ears, I don’t get recognized. I love the fact I’m a shape shifter who can go unnoticed.
I try to keep my routine as consistent as possible. I try to lift every single day. It’s not powerlifting. It’s not lifting to become the strongest man in the world. It’s lifting just to stay in shape. Stay lean. Stay injury free.

Franklin Roosevelt had to govern at a time of crisis. If you’re going to make changes in the way a nation thinks, you have to have the ability to take the crisis of the moment and use it to shape an agenda.
It’s hard to shape glass. It took me years of practice, and as a result, I’ve never gotten bored with it. It’s difficult. Every time I come into the studio, I’ve got some sort of new challenge. And something that I would like to learn how to do better, and the material never disappoints me.
You can be shattered, and then you can put yourself back together piece by piece. But what can happen over time is this: You wake up one day and realize that you have put yourself back together completely differently. That you are whole, finally, and strong – but you are now a different shape, a different size.
I’m not in the best shape, but I want to prove to myself I can do something that seems insurmountable and inspire others by showing them no matter where they are in their fitness goals, they can do it, too.
I don’t get sick of being naked, but the added pressure is staying in really good shape, because naked shape is a different kind of shape than just regular TV shape. Regular, having-your-clothes-on TV shape is intense, but naked TV shape is, I mean, you really have to watch what you eat.
In the dance world, you have to have a certain muscular shape; you have to have long limbs and willowy shoulders. It’s hard to have breasts.
One of my modeling bookers told me that the most important thing is to try to be vigilant about taking care of yourself. Get sleep, don’t be afraid to trim your hair even if you’re trying to grow it out, don’t bite your fingernails, and stay in shape. A lot of it is in the little things.
To shape today’s and tomorrow’s ‘future proof’ worker, schools must teach specialized hard skills, such as the STEM skills that are in high demand.

I have male friends. I’m the type of girl that always had male friends, more male friends than female friends. So just because you see me with the person doesn’t mean that I’m kicking it with them, hanging out with them, or we’re romantically involved in any way, shape or form.
I know that I’m very comfortable with my body. I’m not in insane shape or anything. I run, but I’m not a gym guy or anything. I wish I had washboard abs, but I don’t.
I graduated from Second City Los Angeles. It helped me tremendously, not only in my roles in films but in helping shape me into a writer as well. In improv, you will fail sometimes, so it teaches you to be brave and try anything. The worst that can happen is nobody laughs.
I am short, so even if there are things that I like, or like on other people, I have to be aware that sometimes that won’t work on me because I’m not 5’10. It has to have a shape for my body; otherwise, I look like I am two inches tall. I have to wear things that skim my body more closely than a runway model would.
The problem with New Year’s resolutions – and resolutions to ‘get in better shape’ in general, which are very amorphous – is that people try to adopt too many behavioral changes at once. It doesn’t work. I don’t care if you’re a world-class CEO – you’ll quit.
When I was 21 years old, I had a job playing Santa Claus in a shopping centre in Sacramento. I was rail thin, so it’s not like I was a traditional Santa Claus even then. I had a square stomach; that was the shape of the sofa cushion that I had stuffed into my pants.
That’s the problem with having a bald head. It exaggerates the shape.

There was one thing my daddy wouldn’t tolerate in any shape, form or fashion, and that was being unkind or rude to somebody. That was just very important to my folks. And as it turns out, that was a legacy that he left me that money can’t buy, is how to be able to treat people.

I get in the gym and put the work in with the fitness coaches so I can be the best shape I can be in.
I have to say that whatever decisions I make, I really do think that movie making is a director’s medium. They are the people that ultimately shape the film, and a director can take great material and turn it into garbage if they are not capable of making a good movie.
To play a soccer game, you have to be in very good shape.
You can wish as hard as you like but all that really matters is the shape you’re in on the day of the race. I’ve always felt these really big races aren’t necessarily won by whoever is the fastest. They’re won by the athlete who is the smartest and in the best shape on the day.
When I think about privacy on social media sites, there’s kind of the usual suspect problems, which doesn’t make them any less important or severe; it’s just we kind of know their shape, and we kind of know how we’re going to solve them.
The role we can play every day, if we try, is to take the whole experience of every day and shape it to involve American man. It is our job to interest him in his community and to give his ideas the excitement they should have.

The only side effect of too much training is that you get into better shape. There is nothing wrong with that.
I’ve stated my position, and that is we do not need a contraption to play the game of golf. I would hope that we’d play under one set of rules, and those rules would include a ban on the long putter hooked to the body in some way, shape or form.
The religious imagery and fairytales that formed our shared cultural references have been replaced by the cult of celebrity. Marilyn is the sex goddess, Camilla Parker Bowles is cast as the wicked witch, Che Guevara is the revolutionary. Celebrities have become visual shorthand for narratives that shape our lives.

I don’t think that trauma is an illusion; there is no question in my mind that circumstances beyond our control can shape and define us. But ultimately, we make choices about letting ourselves be defined by our pasts.
Movies don’t look hard, but figuring it out, getting the shape of it, getting everybody’s character right and having it be funny, make sense and be romantic, it’s creating a puzzle.

Too often we shape our public positions on the basis of our economic connections. That brings us dangerously close to economic determinism.

I was in better shape when I went into boot camp than when I came out.
I wanted a name I could shape the music towards. I was going to Miami quite a lot at the time, speaking a lot of Spanish with my friends from Cuba – ‘Lana Del Rey’ reminded us of the glamour of the seaside. It sounded gorgeous coming off the tip of the tongue.
I really wanted to be as healthy as I could. It wasn’t about getting my six-pack back. There are more important things in life than a six-pack, I realized.

The biggest danger is trying to put too much pressure on yourself, trying to get in too good shape.
There are lots of people shaping decisions, and so if we want to predict correctly, we have to pay attention to everybody who is trying to shape the outcome, not just the people at the pinnacle of the decision-making pyramid.
I’m not an exhibitionist in any way, shape or form. I don’t even like having my picture taken!
One of the great things to pretend is that you’re not only alright, you’re in great shape. Now to have that come true – I’ve actually gone on stage depressed and that’s worked its magic on me, ’cause if I can convince you that I’m alright, then maybe I can convince me.
Yes, our tree has an interesting shape. The center branches reflect the shape of the zero curve. When extreme parts of the tree are reached the branching pattern changes to accommodate the mean reversion.
In many a piece of music, it’s the pause or the rest that gives the piece its beauty and its shape. And I know I, as a writer, will often try to include a lot of empty space on the page so that the reader can complete my thoughts and sentences and so that her imagination has room to breathe.
If it awakens in us as a whole how important that is – the theme of how conquest and ambition are meaningless without contribution – I think then as a society we’re in better shape. I hope people are inspired to be the best.

Israel is too attached to America, too influenced by America. It should be connected to Europe. America is based on mythology – the free man, the individual, the open frontier. Europe is more conscious of history. Take Britain and Shakespeare. You shape your identity through history.
Well obviously the economy is critical to everything we do and we need to get the economy back in shape, the deficit down, the debt paid off, so that the economy can grow again and grow properly.

I liked women as a shape to dress.

Designis a revelation to me. It’s like taking something that is not alive and giving it form, shape, substance, and life.

Man shapes himself through decisions that shape his environment.

I never was deeply interested in any object; I never prayed sincerely and earnestly for anything, but it came at some time – no matter how distant, in some way, in some shape, probably the last I should have devised, it came. And yet, I have always had so little faith. God forgive me.

The number of strokes to the inch controls the pitch of the note: the more, the higher the pitch; the fewer, the lower the pitch, the size of the stroke controls the loudness… the tone quality is the most difficult element to control, it is made by the shape of the strokes.
