Yes, sir, I was in the processing room watching them actually process the film.
And as a writer, one of the things that I’ve always been interested in doing is actually invading your comfort space. Because that’s what we’re supposed to do. Get under your skin, and make you react.

I never understood why when you died, you didn’t just vanish, everything could just keep going on the way it was only you just wouldn’t be there. I always thought I’d like my own tombstone to be blank. No epitaph, and no name. Well, actually, I’d like it to say ‘figment.’
My belief is that guns are too easy to get in America. My belief is that the NRA has bought much of our congress, to the point that guns are actually the only unregulated consumer product in America. Think about that. It’s stunning.

I want to see more girls coming in to the sport. There were actually a lot in Canada when I was riding there, but we can let girls know that they can be jockeys. And if they can’t be jockeys, why can’t they be owners or trainers? We need to invite girls in.
Actually, to be an effective person politically in this country, I think you have to be thirty or over, and also you have to be rich, well-placed, you have to be close to power. And I don’t think that young people, because they look young, can do much, as I think they are counterproductive.

My mom worked at McDonald’s, and she decided she wanted to make more money, so she got into the management program at McDonald’s. And that’s how you move up the chain.

It felt good to actually have a decent swim.
Since I was , I’ve had that feeling of, ‘Am I enough? Am I worthy? Am I supposed to be here?’ And my culture and society is telling me that I’m actually not in a lot of ways – unless I have this amount of money, or I’m in this kind of car and I have this kind of job, or I’m famous, or whatever.

I’m actually not a particularly negative person, but I feel like most things are better when they’re not actualized. The motivation that comes from wanting something is so much more driving of people than actually getting it.
I really didn’t feel challenged anymore.

Sonny Liston stood up to me and actually made me give ground. No one has ever done that to me before or since.

The Shining’ is one of the few horror movies that I actually like and it actually scared me.
But I don’t actually adopt the point of view that our subjective impression of free will, which is a kind of indeterminacy behavior, comes from quantum mechanical indeterminacy.
True conservatives fear anything that is at odds with the status quo, even to the extent of being unable to recognise when the status quo represents injustice. And reactionary conservatives actually want to tear down the gains of the past.
I was kind of a misfit, actually. When you’re young, you want to be like everybody else, and I was like nobody else. I couldn’t sit still. I was impulsive. I still am. What is now called a ‘talent’ did not serve me well as a child. I didn’t have friends. I was really an outcast.
We all prospect, and don’t even know we’re doing it. When you start the dating process, you are actually prospecting for the person you want to marry. When you’re interviewing employees, you are prospecting for someone who will best fit your needs.
The foundation of a financial fresh start actually has nothing to do with money or specific financial dos and don’ts.
I grew up under Thatcher. I grew up believing that I was fundamentally powerless. Then gradually over the years it occurred to me that this was actually a very convenient myth for the state.
I am a recovering narcissist. I thought narcissism was about self-love till someone told me there is a flip side to it. It is actually drearier than self-love; it is unrequited self-love.
Avicii’s melodies were so simple and cool, and they were actually similar to the melodies I played on piano. I thought if I could teach myself how to produce and get those melodies out of my head and into the computer, maybe I could make some cool music, too.
Surely the job of fiction is to actually tell the truth. It’s a paradox that’s at the heart of any kind of storytelling.
I’m interested in memory because it’s a filter through which we see our lives, and because it’s foggy and obscure, the opportunities for self-deception are there. In the end, as a writer, I’m more interested in what people tell themselves happened rather than what actually happened.
I believe we need leaders who actually want to lead everyone.
I actually love swimming but I just hate jumping in the water.
I went to New York for Fashion Week and girls showed up waiting to see me. It’s funny because there’s a group of girls who I actually recognize because they always show up. It’s nice and I’m like, ‘Hi girls! I recognize your faces!’ It’s just like a feel-good experience.
You always do what you want to do. This is true with every act. You may say that you had to do something, or that you were forced to, but actually, whatever you do, you do by choice. Only you have the power to choose for yourself.
Basically, when you get to my age, you’ll really measure your success in life by how many of the people you want to have love you actually do love you.
I actually think storyboards are great. I don’t draw well enough to do them myself. I’ve only used storyboards a couple of times. We used two storyboards in ‘Margaret’: one for the bus accident and for the opera sequence at the end.
I think everybody’s got different methods of working which suit the particular individual. Mine is to sort of play the part, and give 100%, to concentrate and focus on it while I’m actually working, but then leave it behind until the next day.
You can lose people without them dying, and I have, from moving, from traveling. The emotion is real, it just doesn’t actually have to do with death. I’m singing about what I know, and it’s a song about longing for somebody who’s disappeared in your life.
The world is very lucky to have America. It’s got to be the first time in the whole history of the planet that a country has been the dominant force in the world and it has actually been a force for good… America really deserves more credit.
I actually always have good intentions.
I actually met The Game in my hood on Crenshaw and Slauson. I was outside on the block with 20 of my homies. I see the Range Rover, and we all walked up to his car. I handed him my CD.
Boundaries are actually the main factor in space, just as the present, another boundary, is the main factor in time.
That experience with ‘Rent’ went by so fast. I was younger. I didn’t even really know what opening night was. And now I’m thinking back on the times I went to Broadway as a kid and the excitement I felt… And I’m realizing that I’m actually a part of that, so I’m learning to take it in, ’cause so often I shrug it away.
I realized quickly what Mandela and Tambo meant to ordinary Africans. It was a place where they could come and find a sympathetic ear and a competent ally, a place where they would not be either turned away or cheated, a place where they might actually feel proud to be represented by men of their own skin color.
I actually love actresses who look like they feel really natural. I like Patricia Clarkson, Laura Linney, Frances McDormand. Those are actresses where the second they show up on screen you’re like, oh my gosh, this movie just got so much better.
I like cappuccino, actually. But even a bad cup of coffee is better than no coffee at all.
If you take out the killings, Washington actually has a very very low crime rate.
It’s always a pleasure when you get to work with people that you actually really like.
You see, in life, lots of people know what to do, but few people actually do what they know. Knowing is not enough! You must take action.
So smoking is the perfect way to commit suicide without actually dying. I smoke because it’s bad, it’s really simple.
If you listen to people talk, when people actually talk, they talk in melodies. If they get angry, their voice rises, and it’s more of a staccato thing. When they ask for something, they’re real sweet. It’s all music.
Let’s assume for the moment that the logic behind Presidents Day is actually sound for certain presidents. Why not have a separate holiday for Lincoln and one for Washington – as we used to do, before we became so concerned with the ‘Every President Gets a Trophy’ ethos?
I’m very happy to say goodbye to the three-button suits. I hate three-button suits. Some people can pull them off, but they’re legitimately really, really skinny. Unfortunately, the only people who actually wear them are, like, Mr. Monopoly, and people like that.
My parents elected me president of the family when I was 4. We actually had an election every year, and I always won. I’m an only child, and I could count on my mother’s vote.
So most girls I date – actually, all of them – say this. Every girl I end up dating, there’s like a couple things. One, they hate me at first.
If I can inspire one person to actually administer change, to want to inspire change, I will follow that person.
Congress will pass a law restricting public comment on the Internet to individuals who have spent a minimum of one hour actually accomplishing a specific task while on line.
To make a good decision, you actually need to think about it, the contours and the consequences.
Look at growth, look at how much time people spend on the Net and look at the variety of things that they are doing. It’s all really good, so I am actually encouraged by the fundamentals that underlie usage growth on the Net.
I admire when people take the harder path, not because they are masochistic and want to beat themselves up, but because you actually kind of learn more and I think you grow more.
I got the idea for ‘Throne of Glass’ when I was sixteen. Music always inspires my books, and when I was listening to the ‘Cinderella’ soundtrack, I thought, ‘What if Cinderella was actually an assassin who liked getting dressed up all pretty and going to the ball, but then she wouldn’t mind kicking butt?’
If one considered life as a simple loan, one would perhaps be less exacting. We possess actually nothing; everything goes through us.
It’s easy for us to congratulate ourselves on our own moral superiority when compared to the 1930s, but I’m not sure that we’re actually right about that. In most of the West, we simply haven’t been tested in the same way. And when we are tested, we often fail.
I was an undergraduate at Princeton, and I was pressed by the math department to go on to graduate school. Actually they gave me fellowships that paid my way, otherwise I would not have been able to continue.
I think a simple rule of business is, if you do the things that are easier first, then you can actually make a lot of progress.
My first-ever concert was the Barney concert when I was, like, six. My mum took me because I was obsessed with Barney. Barney was actually my first crush… He’s, like, literally better than all the guys in the whole world.
Well-being cannot exist just in your own head. Well-being is a combination of feeling good as well as actually having meaning, good relationships and accomplishment.
Every bad joke, every endorsement deal, all of the things that a typical host would normally get creamed for, people don’t mind, because they know I don’t cheat when it comes to the work I actually try. I’m a lab rat. I’m a perpetual apprentice. The joke is on me if there is one.
I actually spend as much time listening to new music as to old. Probably more. I just try to get something out of it all.
I can’t say this enough – the food that you put into your bodies can actually help you get better grades. And it can also affect your performance in sports and other activities too. You see, when you give your body the best possible fuel, you have more energy, you’re stronger, you think more quickly.
Research shows that there is only half as much variation in student achievement between schools as there is among classrooms in the same school. If you want your child to get the best education possible, it is actually more important to get him assigned to a great teacher than to a great school.
I was really amazed when I started hearing ‘Songbird’ on the radio. I couldn’t believe that the record company promotion department had actually convinced radio music directors to play it -because there wasn’t anything like it on the radio at the time.
Actually I don’t remember being born, it must have happened during one of my black outs.
My co-founder Dylan Smith and I left our junior year of college to move to the Bay Area. To the horror of our friends’ parents, we actually had two other friends drop out of college to work on the product. The four of us were just working non-stop growing Box.
Listen, I’ve been pretty fortunate. And if I’ve been underrated, it’s actually been something I’ve been able to work with; I can surprise people. It sets me up to exceed expectations, so I don’t mind.
I think what actually works best is local-level individual targeting of key leadership nodes.
I actually started out as a poet in high school. I published in small literary magazines for probably about ten years. I entered the Yale Younger Poet contest every year, until I was too old to be a younger poet, and I never got more than a form rejection letter from them.
Everyone has their own talents. It’s up to the individual to see what you can actually do.
What I think is happening in China is that they are recognizing mobile infrastructure is actually a critical piece of national infrastructure.

The past actually happened but history is only what someone wrote down.
You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen, it said ‘Parking Fine.’ So that was nice.
I’m not religious, but by nature I am spiritual. I’m an artist, and creativity seems to go hand in hand with spirituality. But I have a knee-jerk reaction against organized religions. Actually, I have knee-jerk reactions against anything that’s organized.
I’ve made ‘The Pilgrimage’ – where I actually had to speak Gaelic – and I was shooting in Belfast as well.
I’ve always believed in a rainbow diet. As many colors and foods as you can eat, the better, because if you focus on one food, there’s bound to be a report that comes out that says, ‘Broccoli actually… ‘ So I mix it up a lot. And I take vitamins, like Biosil, which I take for my hair, skin, and nails.
The reason why it is so difficult for existing firms to capitalize on disruptive innovations is that their processes and their business model that make them good at the existing business actually make them bad at competing for the disruption.
Here’s the truth. Your teens and twenties are your Plan A. At 50, you’re assessing whether Plan B or Plan C or any of the other plans you hatched actually worked. Your sixties and seventies, they’re an improvisation.
The most important impact on society and the world is the cell phone. Cell phones have actually been one of the primary drivers in productivity improvements.
Humanity is actually under the control of dinosaur-like alien reptiles called the Babylon Brotherhood who must consume human blood to maintain their human appearance.

I’m actually really opposed to the death penalty.
In college, I actually majored in Musical Theater. I was pursuing a BFA in Musical Theater.

Symptoms that may seem psychiatric or psychological can actually be signs of a medical condition.
You know, it is a terrible thing to appear on television, because people think that you actually know what you’re talking about.
A lot of people see that I’m a good rebounder. And then they see the long hair and everything and they think I’m getting these rebounds because of toughness, and because I have a nose for the ball, not because I’m athletic and can actually jump.
Then I realized that secrecy is actually to the detriment of my own peace of mind and self, and that I could still sustain my belief in privacy and be authentic and transparent at the same time. It was a pretty revelatory moment, and there’s been a liberating force that’s come from it.
Actually, I believe in everything, including astrology and tarot cards. All of it is just another way for people to try and tighten the link to the spirits in our universe. I believe it exists for all people.
Some of the overflow audience actually sat on the stage.
I’ve always liked depressing music because a lot of times, listening to it when you’re down can actually make you feel less depressed. Also, even though a person may have problems with depression, sometimes you can actually be kind of comfortable in that space because you know how to operate within it.
The sky always seems to be out there, away from us. I like to bring it down in close contact with us, so you feel you are in it. We feel we are at the bottom of this ocean of air; we are actually on a planet.
I am not a nationalist in any way, and I hate flag waving, and I don’t think much good has come out of nationalism. I am proud of Scandinavia in the sense that we have actually managed to create a very tolerant and human society, which is very livable.
If one of my romantic-comedy colleagues had written and directed ‘Love Actually,’ they would have been torn limb from limb. I thought it was awful, contrived, dreadful. I could see every twist and turn. I thought it was despicable. It was the writing that got me.
I’ve always wanted to assist Gautham. I’m happy that I actually got an opportunity to write for him. It’s a dream come true to be associated with him.
I am drawn to cold, desolate places rather than Hawaii. I actually love Hawaii too, but I tend to go to Iceland or Norway or Northern Japan – northern places for whatever reason. Which aren’t necessarily the best places to tour.
The drawings in ‘Portal’ were actually me scribbling that stuff… I had a funny moment when I realized that someone gotten ‘The cake is a lie’ tattooed on themselves. It was really interesting to see my handwriting tattooed on another human being. That… that’s odd.
The only thing that I’m obsessed with is sleeping, and actually, it is more than an obsession, it is a pleasure.
Believe it or not, most people think of me as a recording artist, but actually the way I think of myself and the way I earn my living is as a performing artist.
You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen, it said ‘Parking Fine.’
As a youngster, I never dreamed there could be a career actually earning a living writing music.
He who lives in our mind is near though he may actually be far away; but he who is not in our heart is far though he may really be nearby.
You just have to be authentic. You can’t fake a smile. You have to do what you actually enjoy.
Truth be told, actually, my favorite director of the Movie Brats was not Scorsese. Loved him. But my favorite director of the Movie Brats was Brian de Palma. I actually met De Palma right after I’d done ‘Reservoir Dogs,’ and I was very beside myself.
Governors sometimes have a hard time jumping up on a table and yelling the loudest because they’ve actually been there. They realize it’s difficult to govern in a split environment.
My grandmother had flawless skin just from using basic skincare – an old herbal remedy in the form of a white powder and cream. I don’t actually know what was in it because when you’re young, you’re not interested in skincare, and I didn’t want to walk around the house with a white face.
I actually grew up in the City of Pasadena.
I’ve always believed in God. I also think that’s the sort of thing that either comes as part of the equipment, the capacity to believe, or at some point in your life, when you’re in a position where you actually need help from a power greater than yourself, you simply make an agreement.
I actually had a dream, which I believe is right from God, about My Pillow.
You know, as most entrepreneurs do, that a company is only as good as its people. The hard part is actually building the team that will embody your company’s culture and propel you forward.
The vast majority of human beings dislike and even actually dread all notions with which they are not familiar… Hence it comes about that at their first appearance innovators have generally been persecuted, and always derided as fools and madmen.
English is my first language, but when I started shooting for ‘Definition of Fear,’ I actually had trouble with my lines! It was so weird, because I never have trouble with my lines in Hindi!

You can’t be against bullying without actually doing something about it.
I’d definitely pose nude again. No qualms. I actually had my breasts done again. Just updated, like new tires.
Once you digitize data, you can actually analyze patterns and relationships in geographic space – relationships between certain health patterns and air or water pollution, between plants and climate, soils, landscape.
It’s obviously tricky to convert cellulose to a useful biofuel. I think actually the most efficient way to use cellulose is to burn it in a co-generation power plant. That will yield the most energy and that is something you can do today.
There are some ghost stories in Japan where – when you are sitting in the bathroom in the traditional style of the Japanese toilet – a hand is actually starting to grab you from beneath. It’s a very scary story.
To pretend, I actually do the thing: I have therefore only pretended to pretend.
Forgiveness isn’t just the absence of anger. I think it’s also the presence of self-love, when you actually begin to value yourself.
I’m not always up to date on everything that’s going on, but I am somewhat informed. I listen to NPR. And I actually watch Fox News, because I believe, if you just listen to the things that agree with you, you’re not really seeing anything else.
I grew up in the South, and our way of dealing with each other was teasing, ribbing, making fun and scrapping in the street. Criticism doesn’t bother me so much. It actually made me, when I was younger, more aggressive. But you get into middle age, and you lose interest in that stuff. It’s not serious.
My favourite poem is the one that starts ‘Thirty days hath September’ because it actually tells you something.
It is said that power corrupts, but actually it’s more true that power attracts the corruptible. The sane are usually attracted by other things than power.
As we let our light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence actually liberates others.
The Wii U is pretty cool, and the thing that I’m most intrigued about it is it’s the first gaming platform that actually is exploiting the second screen.
Because ‘Gob’ was a terrible magician, he was always, in great comedic moments, messing up his magic act. We used to have magicians come in to work on these tricks to actually get them wrong. But they still had to work. We had to bring magicians on to make magic not work.
The joy of doing ‘Sandman’ was doing a comic and telling people, ‘No, it has an end,’ at a time when nobody thought you could actually get to the end and stop doing a comic that people were still buying just because you’d finished.
I feel like I’m a New Yorker because I really know the city. I actually tell the drivers where to go – I have this bad habit, I always question the drivers. I do that all the time because I feel like I know the best way, when really it’s like, ‘Yo, man, shut up. This dude does this every day of his life.’
To explore different parts of yourself and different emotional lives… not to hide from who you are but to actually explore who you are.
Ever since I was a teenager, I always had a very strong sense of my own personal style. Kind of for better or for worse – actually I don’t think it’s ever been for worse. The way that I dress has always been a pretty accurate reflection of my personality and my life.
When we advocate for violence against women to be eliminated on campuses, we say, ‘Well, actually, it’s not just on campuses we have to worry about.’ We might have to worry about high schools. We might have to worry about police precincts and cars. We might have to worry about public housing.
Forty is when you actually begin even deserving to be on stage telling people what you think.
I take a little pride in my diaper-changing, actually.
A stereotype may be negative or positive, but even positive stereotypes present two problems: They are cliches, and they present a human being as far more simple and uniform than any human being actually is.
The older I get, the younger I feel. Growing up, I was always the kid, but I spoke like an adult and was in adult roles. I didn’t feel like a kid. The older I get, I actually feel younger! Which is good. I always thought when you get older, you’ll want to slow down, but I want to do even more.
When I started to watch some of the films I’d done, I realized I was doing movies that I might not actually want to see.
If you actually succeed in creating a utopia, you’ve created a world without conflict, in which everything is perfect. And if there’s no conflict, there are no stories worth telling – or reading!
The more specific you are about a very general feeling of loneliness is actually how you connect with people.
Whatever obstacle comes your way, you gotta be prepared to jump over it! And I think that’s what separates the legends from the regular artists. It’s all in how you manage that success, and how you deal with the controversy when it actually comes.
The most amazing philanthropists are people who are actually making a significant sacrifice.
Despite what people might think, I’m not interested in being dark all the time. I’m actually searching for some kind of light, and I’m always very happy when I can achieve that.
The big moments for me are moments when I can actually contribute.
To stop smoking was actually really easy because I had already started to cut down. My husband is asthmatic, and he just can’t for the life of him imagine why anybody would put smoke in their mouth, so he really helped me to start cutting down.
The story being told in ‘Star Wars’ is a classic one. Every few hundred years, the story is retold because we have a tendency to do the same things over and over again. Power corrupts, and when you’re in charge, you start doing things that you think are right, but they’re actually not.
Actually, because I’m so small, when I strike an open A chord I get physically thrown to the left, and when I play an open G chord I go right. That’s how hard I play, and that’s how a lot of my stage act has come about. I just go where the guitar takes me.
There’s nothing scarier than silence. A lot of horror movies lean on hits and score to try and create tension, which actually does the opposite. The best scares come from a desire to see the character overcome what they’re dealing with in the scene. If you care about the character you’ll care about the scare.
We name time when we say: every thing has its time. This means: everything which actually is, every being comes and goes at the right time and remains for a time during the time allotted to it. Every thing has its time.
I’m an only child, and I’m very, very close with my parents, who actually live in Australia.
I was actually quite surprised how many more mythologies there are about mermaids than the ones our society knows. I was so pleasantly surprised for ‘Siren’ to add quite an original idea to that: One that is a predator. One that is very intelligent but still has to survive in the ocean with all of its challenges.
It’s fun when your kids reach a point where you can actually start talking about things.
When I was at ‘Newsweek’ magazine – which, you know, this really sounds like I walked four miles in the snow to school – but I started at ‘Newsweek’ magazine in 1963, which was before the Civil Rights Act of 1964. So it was actually legal to discriminate against women, and ‘Newsweek’ did.
Our school not only makes you an actor, it makes you understand who you actually are as well… it gives you discipline and punctuality. It also teaches you a way of life.
A U.S. dollar is an IOU from the Federal Reserve Bank. It’s a promissory note that doesn’t actually promise anything. It’s not backed by gold or silver.
The thing with Linux is that the developers themselves are actually customers too: that has always been an important part of Linux.
When streaming came out years ago I loved it. I loved having an audience, I loved chatting away and looking at a live chat and now on Twitch you can actually get a career at it.
To complete your daily mental hygiene, observe any part of you that is upset or anxious, and offer that part of yourself the following simple wishes: ‘May you be well. May you be happy. May you be free from suffering.’ Repeat this until you actually mean it.
In today’s time, writing stuff that actually happened is touch-and-go, because you don’t want to be too personal. If you are, then it probably won’t relate to a mass audience. A lot of times you have to make it sound like it’s about everybody else, but you really went through it.
It was Cosmos who actually told Crystal Palace about me. Palace came to have a look, liked what they saw, and they took it from there.
As I have said before, that Federal Penal Code could never have been enacted into law if we had had a responsible press who was willing to tell the American people the truth about what it actually provides. Nor would we have had a bill had it not been for the United States Supreme Court.
There’s a real purity in New Zealand that doesn’t exist in the states. It’s actually not an easy thing to find in our world anymore. It’s a unique place because it is so far away from the rest of the world. There is a sense of isolation and also being protected.
If you continue to keep low performers on your team, that are actually dragging the team down; you’re failing the whole team, and eventually, the whole team is going to fail.
I want to write about people I love, and put them into a fictional world spun out of my own mind, not the world we actually have, because the world we actually have does not meet my standards.
If you actually relax your vocal cords they actually work better.
What do you actually need? Food, clothing and shelter. Everything else is entertainment.
I think it’s in our nature to try to get beyond that next horizon. I think that when we, as a species, are scratching that itch, we’re actually following an evolutionary compulsion that is wired into us. I think good things come of it.
If you don’t give power to the words that people throw at you to hurt you, they don’t hurt you anymore. And you actually have power over those people.
I’m a pretty decent tap dancer. I enjoy all types of dancing, actually.
I have no complaints or grudges against my dad. Actually my father’s remarriage was a blessing in disguise for us.
I’ve come to believe that all my past failure and frustration were actually laying the foundation for the understandings that have created the new level of living I now enjoy.
New York is actually a pretty safe place, and I think invoking the Bronx as a metaphor for the nightmarish urban environment is no longer spot on.
I actually feel I’m in a much better place than I’ve ever been because I’m thankful people still love the songs that I’ve written, and they seem to like me. And they come to the shows in droves, and they get all excited, and I can still hit all the notes, and I don’t look terrible.
We actually say in ‘Nightbreed,’ ‘God is an astronaut, Oz is over the rainbow, and Midian is where the monsters go.’ There’s a lovely sense in which there’s a simple thesis being played out here. These are things you understand as a child out on the play yard.
Men are actually the weaker sex.
For me, it’s always been a financial kind of scenario. I was actually the first one who signed the ‘exclusive to Ring of Honor’ contract. I was the first guy who ever signed one of those contracts. That was tough for me because I had no one to talk to. I had no examples to go on. I was the guinea pig.
Actually, I have this random fear, and it’s of bees and wasps. Bees and wasps actually scare me just a little bit. I’d rather have a snake or a crocodile, yes… I appreciate them, and I love them, but I have a slight fear.
I’ve got a great cigar collection – it’s actually not a collection, because that would imply I wasn’t going to smoke every last one of ’em.
Talking about ‘stopping globalization’ is unrealistic – and probably not what anti-globalization protesters actually want.
I’ve actually made a prediction that within 30 years a majority of new cars made in the United States will be electric. And I don’t mean hybrid, I mean fully electric.
I love ghosts. I’ve actually seen a couple of spirits in my life and almost every single night, till today, I try and watch a scary film.
But you don’t decide what to do with the info. Thought runs you. Thought, however, gives false info that you are running it, that you are the one who controls thought. Whereas actually thought is the one which controls each one of us.
If you want what you’re saying heard, then take your time and say it so that the listener will actually hear it. You might save somebody’s life. Your own, first.
Japan, not only a mega-busy city that thrives on electronics and efficiency, actually has an almost sacred appreciation of nature. One must travel outside of Tokyo to truly experience the ‘old Japan’ and more importantly feel these aspects of Japanese culture.
The relationship that tests/frustrates/irritates you the most actually is one of your greatest blessings. Why? Because it reveals to you the very beliefs/fears and false assumptions that most limit you.
The kitchen’s a laboratory, and everything that happens there has to do with science. It’s biology, chemistry, physics. Yes, there’s history. Yes, there’s artistry. Yes, to all of that. But what happened there, what actually happens to the food is all science.
It’s easy to walk away from risk, and you don’t actually have to face it. Success is based upon overcoming the inherent risk you can’t manage your way out of.
In life when you get tested, when you get rejected by everyone and when you get pushed aside, you actually get the best out of it. That has been a learning curve for me.
In the commercial world, you have this problem that the amount of research you can do in a company is based on how well your current business is going, whereas there actually should be an inverse relationship: when things are going worse, you should do more research.
I loved eating and I did put on weight. I never actually felt fat until I started going for castings, for auditions.
If our extinction proceeds slowly enough to allow a moment of horrified realization, the doers of the deed will likely be quite taken aback on realizing that they have actually destroyed the world. Therefore I suggest that if the Earth is destroyed, it will probably be by mistake.
I was a Versace perfume girl at Saks Fifth Avenue, and Rihanna actually came up to the counter and asked for something. And she wouldn’t even take her sunglasses off! She was so mean to me. Not mean, but, like, guarded. I don’t blame her, though.
The purpose of art actually is, in many cases, to make you feel quite uncomfortable. Or at least to go to that place that’s already of discomfort inside of you and tap into that.
It doesn’t really change, actually. I think The Rolling Stones have gotten a lot better. An awful lot better, I think. A lot of people don’t, but I think they have, and to me that’s gratifying. It’s worth it.
I’m a quarter Chinese and three-quarter Filipino. I don’t look Filipino; I look more Chinese or Korean. It actually works in my favor: in terms of roles, it gives me a broader canvas.
The comments I most appreciate come from ordinary readers who’ve happened on one of my books at some time of stress in their lives, and who actually credit the book with helping them through a bad time. It’s happened a few times in forty years.
I didn’t actually know what a treasure ‘The Great British Bake Off’ was, so I just thought, ‘oh it’ll be fun to do that, I’d like to do that.’ Then when I went and had to have an audition and meet Paul Hollywood, I suddenly thought, ‘this is really important.’
I don’t actually subscribe to the view that all power corrupts. But absolute power – when secured on the back of massive parliamentary majorities, which don’t reflect the balance of political opinion in the country – can corrupt absolutely.
My parents are both Belgian-born, and so am I, actually.
My family actually lived in the same village for about 400 years. They had great stability until the last century. People lived and intermarried in small villages.
People overcoming the odds is actually a really important part of humanity, and I don’t think we kind of get to celebrate that as much as we should.
Alex Ferguson is the best manager I’ve ever had at this level. Well, he’s the only manager I’ve actually had at this level. But he’s the best manager I’ve ever had.
I actually found contracting malaria in the Congo fascinating. Observing your body under attack from this microorganism and seeing how it responds is simultaneously fascinating and awful but maybe that’s just because I’m a former biology teacher.
Growing up here in Hawaii, I loved swimming, surfing, and having fun in this paradise we are lucky to call home. But I gradually realized that I was actually happiest when I was doing things for other people, doing things to protect our water, oceans, and beaches.
The interesting thing about overthinking and procrastination is sometimes they can actually evolve into innovation and creativity in the short term. Letting an idea grow in your mind in the short term with a deadline and a plan can actually lead to innovation and creativity.
What the iPad does is it opens people’s minds to a new way of doing things. They’re actually thirsting for it.
We’re actually thinking about distributing ‘Moon Over Broadway’ on-line. It’s tempting, because when you go to a major studio, it’s sort of like a farm, you know? They make all the money, since it’s kind of a buyer’s market.
It took me years to realize that ‘normal’ is actually super boring and that being myself was harder but infinitely more rewarding.
We set up a small bitcoin and ethereum mining operation… that miraculously now is actually making a lot of money.
Beyonce in real life is actually quite quiet and very sweet.
I’m a really fun aunt, so I hope I’m going to be a fun mom! I like to have fun and be silly and not take myself too seriously with the kids, so I hope that will translate when I actually have my own.
We think that the world is a solid, vivid place, full of shape and colour and solid objects like this table and this microphone and so on, but we actually create that in our heads out of the bits of information that hit the back of our eyeballs or hit our eardrums or hit our tongues or whatever.
Actually, we’ve done 75 of these shows and every one of them has sold out. But then we buy all the tickets.
The stimulation I get from my phone does not feel like the opposite of boredom to me. It actually feels like a different flavor of boredom… a twitchier flavor. And sometimes, it’s almost more irritation than stimulation. It’s an itch.
Who would have ever thought that, within a couple months of getting into the WWE, that I’d be wrestling in the main event for the world championship? Then, nine months after getting here, actually being the world champion.
One reason some people are long-winded is because they’re trying to impress their conversational counterpart with how smart they are, often because they don’t actually feel that way underneath. If this is the case for you, realize that continuing to talk will only cause the other person to be less impressed.
By getting into distribution and production, I am actually widening my base.
A true friend is someone who is always there during the ups and downs, I actually have a song called ‘True Friend’.
I’m a big dog fan. They’re the best. They make life better, although they’re hard to deal with. But complications in life are actually what make it fun.
The financial markets generally are unpredictable. So that one has to have different scenarios… The idea that you can actually predict what’s going to happen contradicts my way of looking at the market.
The whole idea of love is scary – so is being with someone for the rest of your life and being happy with them for the rest of your life. There’s lots of research to suggest that, actually, love’s not really that simple.
When people see your personality come out, they feel so good, like they actually know who you are.
Actually the copies of characters is something I don’t particularly like to talk about in articles but just for your information, most characters there’s only one.
A lot of people like to do certain things, but they’re not that good at it. Keep going through the things that you like to do, until you find something that you actually seem to be extremely good at. It can be anything.
I went to an all-girls’ Catholic school for, like, six years during the time when kids actually had handwriting class. I’ve always had a propensity for getting the cursive down pretty well.
Life is really pretty tricky, and there’s a lot of loss, and the longer you stay alive, the more people you lose whom you actually couldn’t live without.
I actually think people generally have an awareness and feel like, ‘Wow, these networks have a lot of information.’
If you keep proving stuff that others have done, getting confidence, increasing the complexities of your solutions – for the fun of it – then one day you’ll turn around and discover that nobody actually did that one!
We need people who can actually do things. We have too many bosses and too few workers.
Speaking truth to power is actually a form of loyalty.
Women are so powerful they’re scary, and the incentive to squash this has been going on for so long that some of us actually believe we’re subordinate.
Here’s something that’s contrary to popular belief: I actually don’t like thinking. I think people think I like to think a lot. And I don’t. I do not like to think at all.
When I was younger, it was harder for me to find a black eyeliner that would actually show up on my skin. Being a dark-skinned woman, when you find something that actually shows up on your face, you love it even more.
I feel like it’s actually everybody’s responsibility to use whatever platform they have to do good in the world, basically, and to try to make our society better, whether you’re an accountant or an activist or an athlete or whatever it is. I think it’s everybody’s responsibility.
I am a little bit of a softie, yes. Actually I don’t think it’s softness, I think it’s kindness.
Seeing yourself in print is such an amazing concept: you can get so much attention without having to actually show up somewhere… You don’t have to dress up, for instance, and you can’t hear them boo you right away.
Screenwriting is the most prized of all the cinematic arts. Actually, it isn’t, but it should be.
I love fashion, I’m actually a pretty talented seamstress, so I can make stuff for myself, but that’s really time-consuming.
I’m actually a mummy’s boy.
I think by being happy it actually affects the way that you look too.
The average Indian doesn’t care about Hollywood movies because they have far too many movies of their own to watch, to miss, and I hope a story like ‘Million Dollar Arm,’ that is actually about India and deals with these two Indian kids, resonates over there and makes people want to go and see the movie.
That whole ‘Giant Killer’ era was actually kind of fun for me. That is what elevated my name in WCW.
People do not wish to appear foolish; to avoid the appearance of foolishness, they are willing to remain actually fools.
Inherently, I’m not a huge extrovert, so I actually find interviews and all the glamour to be a bit challenging sometimes.
We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be?
Silicon Valley has a lot of noise, a lot of hype. People are very excited about all of the Facebook stuff, Facebook applications. It’s just been a huge hype over the last year when actually… there isn’t really that much value.
My life is actually empty, so I feel like I’m lying to everyone by pretending to be happy on the outside.
Pleasure without God, without the sacred boundaries, will actually leave you emptier than before. And this is biblical truth, this is experiential truth. The loneliest people in the world are amongst the wealthiest and most famous who found no boundaries within which to live. That is a fact I’ve seen again and again.
I stay away from dairy and I drink almond milk now. And I’ve also found that eating breakfast, like waking up and actually having it, helps me stay way healthy.
I’ve been actually really very pleased to see how much awareness was raised around bullying, and how deeply it affects everyone. You know, you don’t have to be the loser kid in high school to be bullied. Bullying and being picked on comes in so many different forms.
Not only do people stop me on the street to say, ‘We’re walking, we’re walking’, but I have actually been in restaurants where the hostess was saying it to customers.
If you resolve to give up smoking, drinking and loving, you don’t actually live longer; it just seems longer.
What we reliably find is that people’s perseverance scores are actually higher than their passion scores, and I think it really does get to the fact that working hard is hard, but maybe finding your passion is even more difficult.
Boxing is the toughest and loneliest sport in the world. You’ve got all the fans, lots of hangers-on jumping up and shouting different words. But when you actually go in the ring, it’s a very lonely and scary place. It’s just you and the other guy.
Maybe it’s a little depressing to think that my vision of a perfect world is actually so messed up, but I think it means that I don’t really understand what ‘perfect’ is.
I’m no apologist for Russia or the Assad regime, but actually, this has been staring us in the face for a number of years now, and I think it’s time to turn a page and accept reality. Our strategy – if that is the right word – failed miserably, and Russia’s with Iran has been successful.
I actually don’t invest in anything that is social, mobile, deals or ad networks simply because those are areas where there are so many players and so many other smart people in the space, I feel like I don’t have a competitive advantage. So I tend to go after things that are e-commerce, like healthcare.
I just freestyle. I don’t actually write the words on paper. It’s just whatever comes into my mind. I’ll record three or four lines at a time, get a good take, and do three or four more. It may be whatever comes into my mind. But I care about my craft a lot more than a lot of other people.
The number who actually consented to the Constitution of the United States, at the first, was very small. Considered as the act of the whole people, the adoption of the Constitution was the merest farce and imposture, binding upon nobody.
I am the last person on Earth who can be diplomatic. I say what I actually feel.
You aren’t going to be successful as a diplomat if you don’t understand the strategic context in which you are actually negotiating. It is not deal making. It’s not.
When I was young, I really wanted to be a part of the end-of-year awards shows, but now that I’m actually there, it feels weird. I used to go to church and ended the year with a prayer, but now I spend it with people I’m not very familiar with at an award show, and I wonder if it’s something I should be doing.
When you do a play, you have all this time to rehearse and grow into the character. In television, even though you’re waiting and waiting and waiting, once you’re actually on set engaging in the scene with another actor, time is of the essence.
I actually started off majoring in computer science, but I knew right away I wasn’t going to stay with it. It was because I had this one professor who was the loneliest, saddest man I’ve ever known. He was a programmer, and I knew that I didn’t want to do whatever he did.
I tour with a piano, actually. Luckily I am able to hire people that deal with it completely and magically a piano appears on stage and then magically disappears when I leave.
My degrees are in physics and space physics, and I did well enough in university that I actually started working at the Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas, as a robotics flight controller right after college.
We live in a society of victimization, where people are much more comfortable being victimized than actually standing up for themselves.
In sixth grade I had a band called The Blueberry Waterfall. I had borrowed a guy’s Fender Jaguar and Boss Tone Fuzz, which you plugged straight into a Blackface Twin. It was a little power trio – we were actually pretty good for our age.
Actually lowering the cost of insurance would be accomplished by such things as making it harder for lawyers to win frivolous lawsuits against insurance companies.
Percentage margins don’t matter. What matters always is dollar margins: the actual dollar amount. Companies are valued not on their percentage margins, but on how many dollars they actually make, and a multiple of that.
I always played the ugly sister instead of Cinderella or the Wicked Witch. But those are the parts I love, and actually, to be a character actress, you have more longevity, hopefully.
A little light on the RPG elements but heavy on action, ‘Mass Effect 2’ was the game that created a world of characters that I actually cared about. When it came down to making those tough decisions during the final mission, I actually had to put the controller down and think about my choices.
I don’t like money, actually, but it quiets my nerves.
Anytime you write something, you go through so many phases. You go through the ‘I’m a Fraud’ phase. You go through the ‘I’ll Never Finish’ phase. And every once in a while you think, ‘What if I actually have created what I set out to create, and it’s received as such?’
A diplomat is a person who can tell you to go to hell in such a way that you actually look forward to the trip.
In the information society, nobody thinks. We expect to banish paper, but we actually banish thought.
I had as much time to prepare for that moon landing as NASA did, and I still was speechless when it happened. It just was so awe-inspiring to actually be able to see the thing through the television that was a miracle in itself.
Pride is a time to celebrate what makes us unique and the more we let young people know that those things that make us different are actually our greatest strengths, the more comfortable we are in our own skin and the more peacefully we’ll sleep at night.
You can’t speak for the people unless you’re able to walk amongst the people. And how many of these rappers out here actually hang out with regular people?
I hope that basketball gains momentum and kids understand that you can actually make a living from it. Not just the N.B.A. You can get a scholarship, a free degree – like, no student loan you have to pay off. That’s huge in life. Once they realize that in New Zealand, I hope they get inspired.
Any person without invincible prejudice who had the same experience would come to the same broad conclusion, viz., that things hitherto held impossible do actually occur.
People ask me if there are going to be stories of Harry Potter as an adult. Frankly, if I wanted to, I could keep writing stories until Harry is a senior citizen, but I don’t know how many people would actually want to read about a 65 year old Harry still at Hogwarts playing bingo with Ron and Hermione.
I think it’s actually more difficult to come to a club where everything is going great and everyone is happy. When you take over from a guy who has been sacked because things weren’t going well, it’s more straightforward.
If I’m going to put my image into something, I’ll put my image into something that I actually feel like I’d like to do.
I view Bitcoin as the more democratic version of money and value transfer because no one controls it… I expect the Internet to be around longer than any nation-state, so a nation-state-backed currency is actually less safe than an Internet currency in my mind.
Have you ever noticed some people are able to stay organized while getting a massive quantity of work accomplished, while others appear to be busy but never actually produce results? Time management is the key to becoming a successful entrepreneur.
I actually had the pleasure of meeting David Bowie at his 50th birthday party in New York City. I handed him the cassette of ‘Eight Arms to Hold You,’ which I had just got an advance of that day. He very graciously thanked me and tucked it into his jacket pocket.
There is a small world of people who are very interested in contemporary art and a slightly bigger world of people who look at contemporary art. But then there is a much larger world that doesn’t realise how influential art is on things that they actually look at.
I remember once, actually the first race I ran, I fell.
I drink booze, I smoke, and I’m hooked on caffeine. I actually have been known to swear at times and belch and even raise my voice when provoked. And I’m not physically repressed!
What’s seemingly a simple thing can actually be the hardest to achieve.
I always carry a sketchbook around with me, and I sketch whenever I can… I might be in a financial review and be sketching because I find that I actually listen better when I sketch. Truth be told, there are probably more sketches in my books than there are written notes.
I don’t actually like coffee. But I’m addicted to Starbucks.
If someone decides they’re not going to be happy, it’s not your problem. You don’t have to spend your time and energy trying to cheer up someone who has already decided to stay in a bad mood. Believe it or not, you can actually hurt people by playing into their self-pity.
You get all of your neuroses worked out on stage. I haven’t actually played very many nice characters, certainly not on stage. It’s not a quality that attracts me.
China is a great manufacturing center, but it’s actually mostly an assembly plant. So it assembles parts and components, high technology that comes from the surrounding industrial – more advanced industrial centers – Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, Singapore, the United States, Europe – and it basically assembles them.
I actually have a fear of the water because I nearly drowned. I got caught in a rip tide, and I wasn’t a good swimmer because that was when I was emigrating from England to Australia.
While some doubted that connecting the world was actually important, we were building. While others doubted that this would be sustainable, you were forming lasting connections. We just cared more about connecting the world than anyone else. And we still do today.
The narcissist act is not an act. I actually am a narcissist, very much so. My world revolves around me.
I feel that gender balance in the work environment is actually the best recipe for success.
I really like acting in French. It’s actually quite different for me, from acting in English. It’s fun acting in a foreign language. You’re liberated or freed from preconceptions.
Because of indifference, one dies before one actually dies.
Actually, every time I am back in New York, I read for as many plays as I can.
Artists aren’t really people. I’m actually 40 per cent papier mache.
When I got into all the grunge stuff, I really liked Hole. I actually saw them in concert when I was a sophomore in high school. It was kind of rare to see a successful female rocker get down and dirty with the guys. And Courtney Love did. It was fun to be a fan of something different.
Chewing gum actually lowers your cortisol levels, the hormone responsible for stress. But chewing gum doesn’t just reduce stress, it also makes you more alert and improves your performance in memory-oriented tasks. It does so by increasing the blood flow to your brain and alerting your senses.
I guess a younger me would like that I tried acting? Although I swore that I’d actually go to L.A. and try to make it in movies and I didn’t do that. I did try, though. And I found that I didn’t like it.
Food is medicine. We can actually change our gene expressions with the foods we eat.
I don’t think I’ve ever actually written from inspiration, actually had a song just go, ‘Bing!’ I only recall that happening to me twice – once was with ‘Terrapin’ and the other was ‘Wharf Rat.’ I mean, that’s twice in a lifetime of writing!
Since the 1980s, Republicans have argued that policies embraced by a majority of Americans to promote equality of opportunity actually infringe liberty by hampering businessmen’s actions or taking their money through taxes.
In addition to being what we are as BTS, we wanted to bring some changes, and we actually wanted to evolve as a group. We wanted to show our many colors, but we still want to console others and give hope to others.
I actually do sing sometimes.
I actually do my own renovations. I designed and built a 100-foot split-cedar rail fence to enclose my property. It was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. Don’t recommend doing it alone. I also built a 100-square-foot back porch. Again, don’t recommend doing it alone.
Endings are a part of life, and we are actually wired to execute them. But because of trauma, developmental failures, and other reasons, we shy away from the steps that could open up whole new worlds of development and growth.
If I post something on social media, like Instagram or Twitter, I never actually read the comments.
I actually put Jubilee in ‘Squirrel Girl.’ I made it a priority.
What consumerism really is, at its worst is getting people to buy things that don’t actually improve their lives.
The Internet is the last place where there is actually a free market on Earth.
I’m not gonna be bad at anything, and I want to actually be the best at anything I’m doing. So if I’m playing basketball, if I’m taking the SATs, like, there’s a competitive spirit behind it. With production, it’s the same thing.
I am now convinced that theoretical physics is actually philosophy.
We live in an era of consumerism and it’s all about desire-based consumerism and it has nothing to do with things we actually need.
In the real world, answers may not be clear cut. There will be messy choices, and you’re not going to be able to construct a policy response in a neat and tidy way. Being able to listen to other people, even as you stay true to your principles, that’s how you actually succeed.
I used to get very, very frustrated by people being told what to do by nanny in Brussels. And I remember once I rang the official who was actually responsible for banning the prawn-cocktail-flavoured crisp, which I think contained a dye called Arithrazine or something like that.
I actually think the deafness makes you see clearer. If you can’t hear, you somehow see.
It’s actually more than 700 case studies that show that, especially in times of crisis, we show our best selves. And we get this explosion of altruism and cooperation. This happens again and again after natural disasters, after earthquakes and after floodings.
This thing with everyone knowing you, it’s weird, because people have this one-sided relationship where they look at your picture and feel they know you more than someone they actually know. I don’t really know myself that well.
You can’t escape culture. You can learn about it. You can criticize it. You can try to move it slowly. But at the end of the day, you can’t actually opt out of the culture that you’re in.
One of the key qualities a leader must possess is the ability to detach from the chaos, mayhem, and emotions in a situation and make good, clear decisions based on what is actually happening.
Every morning, I would actually look at the obituaries before I had breakfast. And as a joke I said if I was not in it, I would have the breakfast.
Happiness is actually found in simple things, such as taking my nephew around the island by bicycle or seeing the stars at night. We go to coffee shops or see airplanes land at the airport.
I would say the most satisfying thing actually is watching my three children each pick up on their own interests and work many more hours per week than most people that have jobs at trying to intelligently give away that money in fields that they particularly care about.
The disconnect between what people think and what the political leaders are actually doing is something that we really need to start raising.
Gay, straight, whatever – none of that actually matters when you’re fighting someone. Not what you have in your bank account, what you drive, what sex you are, none of it. I think that’s the message the UFC has been trying to push.
If you give an answer to your viewer, your film will simply finish in the movie theatre. But when you pose questions, your film actually begins after people watch it. In fact, your film will continue inside the viewer.
I read somewhere that 77 per cent of all the mentally ill live in poverty. Actually, I’m more intrigued by the 23 per cent who are apparently doing quite well for themselves.
David Allan Coe actually went to jail one time. Some fan cursed Lynyrd Skynyrd, and David Allan Coe kicked his teeth in. He ran and kicked a guy’s teeth in for saying something about Lynyrd Skynyrd.
By shifting your focus to the princess and treating your life’s challenges like video games, you can trick your brain and actually learn more and see more success.

People think New York is crazy and busy, but it’s actually a great place for lazy people to live.
If you’re put on a pedestal, you’re supposed to behave yourself like a pedestal type of person. Pedestals actually have a limited circumference. Not much room to move around.
I actually went to college with Adam Sandler. He was a dramatic actor, too!
If children are not introduced to music at an early age, I believe something fundamental is actually being taken from them.
All I can say is, I don’t encourage younger kids to read my books, and actually, the biggest age group on my Facebook page is 25- to 35-year-old women.
The threat to the planet is us. It’s actually not a threat to the planet – it’s a threat to us.
If you’re on the side of the oppressor, or you’re defending the oppressor, or you’re actually trying to humanize the oppressor, then that’s a problem.
It’s actually a smarter crime because imagine if you rob a bank, or you’re dealing drugs. If you get caught you’re going to spend a lot of time in custody. But with hacking, it’s much easier to commit the crime and the risk of punishment is slim to none.
I have died many times. I have actually beaten Jesus Christ because he only died once.
You see, I don’t know how to ride a motorcycle, actually.
Divorced women, compared to married women, are less satisfied with their lives, which is not surprising. But they’re actually more cheerful, when you look at the average mood they’re in in the course of the day.
If anyone else played Hermione, it would actually kill me.
Leaks are not the problem; they are the symptom. They reveal a disconnect between what people want and need to know and what they actually do know. The greater the secrecy, the more likely a leak.
The weirdest place I ever actually woke up in was a villa on the beach in Mexico. It was burning hot, and there were all these crabs walking around me. But I was feeling good, so I went with the vibe.
Nobody actually played tennis in my family.
The truth is a mayor can actually do very little to alter the course of a huge city run by the free market that is home to banking – the engine room of capitalism.
Sometimes we wait for thunderclaps, drumrolls, and clarion calls to alert us to what’s important when, actually, it’s most often the subtle and persistent signals around us that make the most difference.
Actually, the fun part was not knowing what the heck I was going to be doing.
You should never view your challenges as a disadvantage. Instead, it’s important for you to understand that your experience facing and overcoming adversity is actually one of your biggest advantages.
I did Broadway shows. And I started realizing that this is actually how I’m going to make my living. So maybe I should try to do television and film and make a better living and get an occasional residual check so I can pay a mortgage someday.
We are so distracted and focused on what’s next, we can fail to see what is actually in front of us.
My father used to say to me, ‘The only limit to your success is your own imagination.’ I actually believed that – like, I’m still coming to terms with the fact that I might not be an Olympic figure skater.
I think of ‘Liar & Spy’ as completely different and actually not at all like a ‘When You Reach Me’-type story. I feel like ‘Liar & Spy’ has a much quieter, more emotional revelation.
As technology evolves, it manipulates our culture, and there’s a huge opportunity to push ourselves further. I think it actually makes ourselves maybe more human, or at least human in a different way, that we can connect together in amazingly different ways and powerful new ways.
What satellites help to show us is we’ve actually only found a fraction of a percent of ancient settlements and sites all over the world… It’s the most exciting time in history to be an archaeologist.
I know certain pro dancers would like to dance with a woman because that is what tradition is, and it kind of makes sense but it is very much down to someone’s personal opinion of what Ballroom and Latin dancing actually is.
I hate going out for lunch during a workday because it slows down my pace and ruins my rhythm. I prefer to eat at my desk. Actually, I wander around the design studio with a plate in my hand as I dine on, for example, salmon sashimi and a salad of tomatoes and mozzarella. I often have a bit of dark chocolate after lunch.
As far as your personal goals are and what you actually want to do with your life, it should never have to do with the government. You should never depend on the government for your retirement, your financial security, for anything. If you do, you’re screwed.
