Gabriel Luna
When I tell people there are three stories in ‘Thunderstruck’ that were from the same wrecked novel, they want to guess what they are. Nobody has. There are no characters or timelines in common. They’re structured very differently. A good novel wouldn’t have pulled apart so easily.
Elizabeth McCracken
We were doing things with a hundred per cent feeling. It wasn’t programmed. It wasn’t asked for. It wasn’t structured. It was just there. It was very raw. I don’t think the industry would allow that to happen again.

Classical is a more refined and structured dance form. Folk is made for celebration. That’s not a very competitive dance form. Though you can bring classical on stage, folk becomes limited.

In college, everything’s structured. In the NBA, it’s like, you have a lot of free time, and you have to use it wisely. A lot of the time, you’re in a hotel room all day. And rest is really the most important thing. Then, just trying to enjoy yourself and have fun.
Trey Burke

George Strait

Buzz Aldrin
The struggle against terrorists in the territory of Syria should be structured in cooperation with the Syrian government, which clearly stated its readiness to join it.
Sergei Lavrov
Grain isn’t structured like a screen door that you’re looking through, but pixels are. Film-based grain is just all over the place, one frame totally different from the next.

Greg MacGillivray
‘Mrs Funnybones’ is based and structured around my columns, and it’s about how a modern woman looks at India and how India looks right back at her. Since I have a weakness for illustrations, there are also a few funny illustrations in there as well.
Twinkle Khanna
I studied structured improv, where you start from one position and see where it takes you. I like spontaneity. If you set yourself up to do the same thing every night, you may not connect as well to a different audience.
Jillian Hervey

There’s a belief that since Africa got a raw deal from the colonial West, then the Chinese must be Africa’s best friend.

George Ayittey
I got into stand-up because I love stand-up. Specifically in stand-up, I love jokes. I love short, structured ideas and a punch line.
Demetri Martin
Even printed, on pages that are bound, sentences remain unsettled organisms. Years later, I can always reach out to smooth a stray hair.

Jhumpa Lahiri
For me a thriller is a very carefully structured story.
Jeffery Deaver
I don’t think of myself as having any freedom when it comes to how ‘Monstress’ is structured and how the story is going because a comic book has to be even more tightly structured than a novel, because there is no room for mistakes. Once the art is done, the art is done.

Being a novelist is the adult version of a kid creating a make-believe world. But unlike a child, a writer of fiction has to come up with a structured story, one that has as much meaning for others as it has for her.
Susan Isaacs

Sanaa Lathan
Training-wise, I don’t have an extreme plan I stick to. I know what I have to do, I know the goal. But it’s not really structured. That’s the beauty of road cycling. It all depends on the conditions on the day and where you are in the world.
Mark Cavendish
I have trouble applying the ‘whistle-blower’ label to someone who just disagrees with the way our country is structured and operates.
James Comey
The contracts are structured different than athletes in America, but for me, it was good to move on and go back to playing in the premiere league, which is the best league. It was disappointing, as far as the team goes, but for me, there wasn’t much I could do.
Claudio Reyna
I figured, ‘If I ever get offered a chance to sign a deal, I’ll only do it if I got to do it how I want.’ So my contract is structured in such a way that I’m really protected.
Regina Spektor
People forget… that we structured it so that the government, or the people, would be repaid with a really good rate of return. And as it turns out, that aspect of TARP, that’s what happened.
George W. Bush
What is happening in the Sahel for the past several months is that terrorists have structured themselves, have installed themselves. It’s not simply a menace for west Africa.

Joshua Foer
I don’t think I have spiritual beliefs in the structured sense – but I believe in the absolute necessity of spirit and a healthy spiritual life. It grew inside me by itself, which is surely the very nature of spirit, and instinctively I protected and nourished it. I also absorbed spirituality by osmosis.
Michael Leunig
Hollywood is a very old and very structured situation. There’s still a lot of old boys at the top who have the money.

Rachel Kushner
I’m quite glad I never learned to play the guitar, because I think I’d write songs that were more classically structured. As it is, I’ve had to create my own way of writing, which isn’t typical. Everything’s a big crescendo.
Florence Welch
I became president of the players’ association and was willing to have conversations with influential people about equal prize money or how the tour could be promoted and structured in a way to make women’s tennis better.

What I realized is that my interest in literature has more deeply structured my practice than I thought.
Glenn Ligon
It was always sort of my dream to make handbags and I wanted a handbag that was very sharp, very structured, very tailored… I wanted a bag you could put all of your things in it, you can open it, you could close it, you could hid all your tricks, but it’s not all lumpy.
L’Wren Scott
Words are really beautiful, but they’re limited. Words are very male, very structured. But the voice is the netherworld, the darkness, where there’s nothing to hang onto. The voice comes from a part of you that just knows and expresses and is.
Jeff Buckley
My crime novels are highly structured. I never start out with a dead body. I start with an impossible scenario. Opening questions should be mysterious, weird, intriguing, and contain the seeds of the solution. The structure has to be meticulous – I’m a structure freak.
Sophie Hannah
I would say the issue for the labor movement in the United States is not structural… there is no correlation between the success of workers and how the labor movement is structured.

Noam Bardin
In a society which is structured the wrong way, piety has no effect.
Friedrich Durrenmatt
If you like Harry Hill, you’d really like Tony Law. He’s a Canadian comic who’s done a few appearances on ‘Never Mind The Buzzcocks’ and ‘8 out of 10 Cats.’ Nobody else could do his stand-up; it’s very idiosyncratic, very daft, very silly, but really well structured.
Sean Lock
I was fairly solitary. I didn’t like structured learning. People didn’t seem to be my cup of tea.
Dan Farmer
Ballet was so structured. I’d been craving something that could guide me.

Evander Holyfield
We’re very lucky in England: everything’s very structured. But in India you have to deal with chaos, and I think that helps dealing with expectation.

Nnamdi Asomugha
When I started out in fashion, everything had to be very structured and tight and controlling, and now I’m getting to a point where I think – I could wear a great big parka, that could be quite fabulous. I haven’t always got to show off my size, show off my shape. It’s a turning point for me.
Victoria Beckham
Vivienne Westwood makes such beautifully structured clothes that are especially flattering if you are curvy.
Antonia Thomas
