At the end of every year, I add up the time that I have spent on the phone on hold and subtract it from my age. I don’t count that time as really living. I spend more and more time on hold each year. By the time I die, I’m going to be quite young.
Rita Rudner

This produces an all-pervasive stress factor whose source can’t be pin-pointed.
David Allen
No man has a right to leave his wife to fight the battle alone if he is able to help. No man has a right to desert his children if he can possibly be of use. As long as he can add to the comfort of those he loves, as long as he can . . . be of any use, it is his duty to remain.

Naomie Harris
There’s just certain styles of playing that you do play in your own way. Maybe it’s in the way your fingers bend, for all I know. And so whenever you pick up the guitar it’s not so much the sound of the instrument itself, it’s like the ting that you add onto it-the attitude.

J. Kenji Lopez-Alt
How very popular to say, ‘spend more on this, expend more on that.’ And of course, we all have our favorite causes; I know I do. But someone has to add up the figures. Every business has to do it, every housewife has to do it, [and] every government should do it.

Miguel de Cervantes
So many people think that if you’re writing fantasy, it means you can just make everything up as you go. Want to add a dragon? Add a dragon! Want some magic? Throw it in.

V. E. Schwab
Once we relieve them from sanctions, their economy opens up, and they can sell oil and pistachios and whatever else they sell around the world. That was why Iran needed a deal.

LeAnn Rimes
Everyone is a virtuoso on his own instrument, but together they add up to an intolerable cacophony.

What I do is interpret, not create. I may add elements and do something different. That is what is so incredible about theatre. Why do we love it that there are nine Hamletsor six King Lears over two years? We love to watch a different actor attack the same material.

Life is hard, money doesn’t care, your tears don’t add value
Kevin O’Leary
A dry martini,’ he said. ‘One. In a deep champagne goblet.’ … Just a moment. Three measures of Gordon’s, one of vodka, half a measure of Kina Lillet. Shake it very well until it’s ice-cold, then add a large thin slice of lemon-peel. Got it?

Ashley Olsen
I’m the only one in my family who doesn’t cook, but I can do a Swiss dish called frittatensuppe. You make a thin omelet from eggs, flour and parsley, then roll and cut it in the shape of tagliatelle and add broth. It’s a tradition we adopted.
Margherita Missoni
Sooner or later that which is now life shall be poetry, and every fair and manly trait shall add a richer strain to the song.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
I would guess that it might have made a difference. It certainly didn’t hurt us in any way. Feng shui creates a balance that I believe adds to the comfort zone of rooms and space, and that is felt by guests and residents.
Donald Trump
Tradition is the living faith of dead people to which we must add our chapter while we have the gift of life. Traditionalism is the dead faith of living people who fear that if anything changes, the whole enterprise will crumble.

Jack Rodwell

Without me, will still bear flowers.
Su Ting
I often enjoy wearing loud and outspoken clothing on stage, so off it, I usually wear loose-fitting vintage shirts, jeans, or track suits I’ve had forever. I just add styling to those pieces.

Carol Anshaw
I described to my patent lawyer our new algorithm-that I was hoping to patent- about detecting clustering, that involved three probabilities О± , ОІ, Оі that add-up to 1, and mentioned that it is like “a three-sided coin”.

Most marriages don’t add two people together. They subtract one from the other.
Ian Fleming
When you start directing movies at the age of 24, you’re just a kid; you don’t necessarily even have the experiences to add to the story. You’re working off of instinct and raw emotions and raw talent, and hopefully it’s the same trajectory as growing as a person.
F. Gary Gray
A movement only becomes a movement of substance, size, and power when the artists say ‘we want to add our voice.’
Kumi Naidoo
For what is history, but… huge libel on human nature, to which we industriously add page after page, volume after volume, as if we were holding up a monument to the honor, rather than the infamy of our species.
Washington Irving
If the U.S. doubled its total immigration and prioritized bringing in new workers, it could add more than half a percentage point a year to expected GDP growth.
Kevin Hassett
C. S. Lewis, Plato, Aristotle and many more names that I could add, including Einstein’s, were individuals who were able to see the innate order in life, which others perceive as chaos.
Frederick Lenz
When I was young and crazy, I was young and crazy. It can be hard enough just to BE in your teens and 20s. Then add fame, money, access, and every single person telling you that you’re the greatest person who ever was, and it can be a recipe for disaster. Some people literally don’t survive it.
Rob Lowe
I am absolutely overjoyed to be joining ‘Strictly.’ I have so much respect for the other judges and hope to add my own bit of sparkle to the show.
Motsi Mabuse
Whoever desires, for his writings or himself, what none can reasonably contemn, the favour of mankind, must add grace to strength, and make his thoughts agreeable as well as useful. Many complain of neglect who never tried to attract regard.
Samuel Johnson
Mascara is my daily essential. I pile it on top and bottom lashes during the day. If I’m going out, I’ll add the individual Eylure lashes at the outer corners for more drama.
Ashley Madekwe
i did know this- every second i spent with her was only going to add to the pain i would have suffer later
Stephenie Meyer
It’s taken a lot of presidents to get us where we are today, a lot of deployments, a lot of wars, a lot engagements. You add them all up.
Jon Huntsman, Jr.
I am a meat-loving Southern girl. Add in being a writer, and that means I drink more than I should, too.
Sarah Lacy
Creativity: Take the obvious, add a cupful of brains, a generous pinch of imagination, a bucketful of courage and daring, stir well and bring to a boil.
Bernard Baruch
I write for no other purpose than to add to the beauty that now belongs to me.
Jack London
Millions do not always add up to what a man needs out of life.
Aristotle Onassis
Real art is illumination, it adds stature to life.
Brooks Atkinson
Don’t add people to your subscriber list just because they once wrote you a note. Or once answered a note you wrote to them. Don’t put your address book into your newsletter database. Let your readers sign up.
M. J. Rose
Inez? I’m sorry I bit you,” he said with sincere regret, and then inspiration made him add, “Bastien made me do it.
Lynsay Sands
In writing ‘William Shakespeare’s Star Wars,’ I had the freedom to go beyond the original script and add asides, soliloquys and even new scenes. The main characters all get a soliloquy or two – or in Luke’s case, several.
Ian Doescher
As an artist you have a choice. You can add more confusion and darkness to the world or you can shine a light, make a beauty.
David LaChapelle
I am now in that happy comfortable state that I do not hesitate to indulge in any fancy in regard to diet, but watch the consequences, and do not continue any course which adds to weight or bulk and consequent discomfort.
William Banting
Men are like dogs,” Stacy was fond of saying. And she usually went on to add that, like dogs, they all took up too much space on the bed, and they always went for the crotch.
Lisa Kleypas
It is how we choose what we do, and how we approach it, that will determine whether the sum of our days adds up to a formless blur, or to something resembling a work of art.
Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
As a young man… you don’t know anything about yourself. And add on to that, you’re on the cover of magazines. People are interviewing you about what you think. You feel like a real phony.
Ethan Hawke
There are some things, after all, that Sally Owens knows for certain: Always throw spilled salt over your left shoulder. Keep rosemary by your garden gate. Add pepper to your mashed potatoes. Plant roses and lavender, for luck. Fall in love whenever you can.
Alice Hoffman
I don’t really like to call myself a brand, and I don’t like to think of myself as a brand. I’m a singer, a songwriter, a musician and a performer. And an actress, and all the other things that I do. When you add it all together, some might call it a brand, but that’s not my focus.
Beyonce Knowles
Playing a real person, it does add an extra level of thoughtfulness. You’re portraying someone who actually existed, so instead of saying, like, ‘OK, I think this would make the scene better,’ it’s more a question of, ‘What do I think the real Jeffrey Dahmer would do?’
Ross Lynch
When I write music, these colors pop out of me. It’s hard to describe, but basically when I write music, I paint, and I add colors, and I add notes.
Ramin Djawadi
Laughter is the jam on the toast of life. It adds flavor, keeps it from being too dry, and makes it easier to swallow.
Diane Johnson
Brave people add up to an aristocracy. The democracy of thou-shalt-not is bound to be a collection of weak men.
D. H. Lawrence
It is a maxim of cryptology that what one man can devise, another can unravel. This principle keeps armies of tax lawyers and accountants employed, but adds nothing to our national productivity.
Walter Wriston
I write the music because I can’t really write lyrics. But I can write chords like Robin’s never heard of. So I provide the music for them to add the lyrics to.
Maurice Gibb
A handbag is only one item to be worn with a complete outfit. Add a peony pink leather handbag to a charcoal gray suit, for instance, and the impact is chic with a touch of wit.
Kate Spade
Nothing could add to the horror of hell, except the presence of its creator, God.
Robert Green Ingersoll
What happens with a lot of leaders is that their leadership style is like ADD; they are all over the place with different ideas. They could be driving one idea forward but then move on to something else too soon.
Henry Cloud
No one may have the guts to say this, but if we could make better human beings by knowing how to add genes, why shouldn’t we?
James D. Watson
I taught a master class in film in France, and that was a great experience because I got a chance to study the French film culture and the French film history, so to add… just to expand myself just personally and professionally was really helpful.
F. Gary Gray
Colors which stand the test of time are Valentino red, white and black. For the festive look, using these colors, you can work with embroidery and sequins to add some bling element to it.
Rhea Pillai
Economists report that a college education adds many thousands of dollars to a man’s lifetime income – which he then spends sending his son to college.
Bill Vaughan
For me, while writing I am an engineer, so if I decide to change the format, I want to add a section, to move a section, reorganize the section, anything I want to do, I just boot words, and I do what I want to do. So, I feel completely empowered when I’m a writer.
Guy Kawasaki
To forget all about your mistakes adds to them perhaps.
Henry David Thoreau
Every man has a purpose, something special that he can do better than anyone else. Your work is to discover this, then give yourself to it. The extent to which you use your skills to add to the world determines your happiness.
Deepak Chopra
Individuals may wear for a time the glory of our institutions, but they carry it not to the grave with them. Like raindrops from heaven, they may pass through the circle of the shining bow and add to its luster; but when they have sunk in the earth again, the proud arch still spans the sky and shines gloriously on.
James A. Garfield
I use Stevia instead of sweetener. I add it to coffee or tea instead of sugar – you can even cook with it. The vanilla flavor is to die for!
Marisol Nichols
I believe that the matter is automatically self-regulating; that those women who prefer the home and have an ability for it will eventually return to it; that others, like myself, will compromise; and that still others, temperamentally unfitted for it, will remain in the world to add to its productivity.
Mary Roberts Rinehart
I think that when audiences find a movie that they don’t expect to like, it adds great word of mouth.
Neal H. Moritz
As an actor, whether you look good or you don’t, it’s still about what you look like: Whether you are heavy enough to play this part or thin enough to play that part. The fact of the matter is, you can add a little weight with some extra padding, but you can’t shave it off.
Cherry Jones
I’m not able to go in with an act that I use month to month year to year all the time. It’s constantly evolving and changing and that keeps me on my toes but certainly adds to the challenge.
Alan Thicke
Faith is not logical. But it isn’t illogical either. Faith is theological. It does not ignore reality; it just adds God into the equation.
Mark Batterson
A great way to get all the right nutrients is to make a colorful plate – mix of good vegetables, carbohydrates, and protein. If you notice all your vegetables are green, change it up and add another color for a variety of benefits in one meal.
Summer Sanders
Facebook allows outsiders to add functionality to the site but reserves the right to change that policy at any time, to charge a fee for applications, or to de-emphasize or eliminate apps that court controversy or that they simply don’t like.
Jonathan Zittrain
It’s estimated that across Africa 100 elephants are killed for their tusks every day. It takes nothing more than simple math to get to what that adds up to in a year, and it’s a distressing figure.
Graydon Carter
I should add that I very much enjoy certain cities especially Paris, New York and Chicago.
Jim Harrison
Things are as bad and as good as they seem. There’s no need to add anything extra.
Pema Chodron
There probably is no more important quest in all science than the attempt to understand those very particular events in evolution by which brains worked out that special trick that has enabled them to add to the cosmic scheme of things: color, sound, pain, pleasure, and all the other facets of mental experience.
Roger Wolcott Sperry
For Google, the problem with being a free, abundant, and rather infinite set of services is that it’s hard to create much of a stir about anything. There are so many major software service options under the ‘more’ menu on the Gmail page that they’ve had to go and add a final item called ‘even more.’
Douglas Rushkoff
Wearing a breathable fabric is the most important thing for me. I also love to keep it simple and keep the number of garments I’m wearing ideally at one (a sundress for example), and then add some great jewelry.
Hilary Rhoda
“Nothing ever happens like you imagine it will,” she says. The sky is like a monochromatic contemporary painting, drawing me in with its illusion of depth, pulling me up. “Yeah, that’s true,” I say. But then after I think about it for a second, I add, “But then again, if you don’t imagine, nothing ever happens at all.”
John Green
The direction and rhythm of human progress do not depend on the masses, even when they add up to hundreds of millions; they depend on superior minorities.
Gonzalo Fernandez de la Mora
Shall I add a man to my collection?
Patricia A. McKillip
The most successful people start with dominant talent—and then add skills, knowledge, and practice to the mix. When they do this, the raw talent actually serves as a multiplier.
Tom Rath
When I come off the bench, I’m looking to add energy, and then I play defense and rebound. Also, at the end of the game, I have the experience to go out there and help us win.
Sue Wicks
I am tired of kissing on screen. I have to do it because it is synonymous with me. Also, the producers and directors want to add that element. I don’t give it too much importance.
Emraan Hashmi
Relax, having kids is years away. But can you imagine? Your brains, my charm, our collective good looks… then add in the usual physical abilities dhampirs get. It’s really not even fair to everyone else.
Richelle Mead
It’s hard enough to work and raise a family when your kids are all healthy and relatively normal, but when you add on some kind of disability or disease, it can just be such a burden.
Patricia Heaton
I played the violin my whole life. I wanted to play from the time I was just a little kid, and I’ve always loved dance as well. I wanted to make people smile. I wanted to add an extra energy to my playing and make it visual and make it unique and fun.
Lindsey Stirling
It was very challenging, trying to add an orchestra on top of these traditional African rhythms, because as soon as you add any kind of melody or chords over it, it stops feeling African.
Ludwig Goransson
At a lecture I am asked to pronounce my name three times. I try to be slow and emphatic, “AnaГЇs – AnaГЇs – AnaГЇs. You just say “Anna” and then add “ees,” with the accent on the “ees.”
Anais Nin
A look which reveals inward stress adds more beauty to the face, no matter how much tragedy and pain it bespeaks; but the face which, in silence, does not announce hidden mysteries is not beautiful, regardless of the symmetry of its features.
Khalil Gibran
My own experience with being interviewed is mixed. I suppose they’re a part of my job, and as I would like readers to connect with my books, I do them. I’ve also made many lifelong friends whom I first encountered as interviewers – as a writer, they’re a terrific way to meet and add smart new people to one’s life.
Douglas Coupland
I made the mistake of writing something very, very short about Obama for this website that I write fiction for, and my father told me never do that again. And he was right. I have nothing to add to a political conversation because it’s not my area.
Jesse Eisenberg
I value the momentum of making the list and the drive to tick. Sometimes I add stuff I’ve already accomplished so I can get going on my feelings of accomplishment.
Sara Genn
Jesus. Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene. Delilah, Jezebel, Salome, Judith, Eve. Trouble, every last one. Add Minerva Highwood to the list.
Tessa Dare
I feel like if you really know the ending right from the beginning, you can add so many subtleties and little things later that will pay off and be more consistent and more rewarding for the reader.
Jeff Lemire
It’s always exciting to be part of films where you matter and add value.
Raashi Khanna
What makes the production of my work so expensive? The whole installation thing – the construction, the objects, the technology. It really adds up.
Barbara Kruger
I wish to add my mite towards expounding & interpreting the Almighty, & his laws & works, for the most effective use of mankind; and certainly, I should feel it no small glory if I were enabled to be one of his most noted prophets (using this word in my own peculiar sense) in this world.
Ada Lovelace
When revising, consider whether you have written anything that will hurt or offend a member of your immediate family. If the answer is no, go back and add something.
Lynn Coady
Life will not, it will never, make sense to your mind. The secret is to see life from the soul’s perspective; to add to the mind’s experience the soul’s wisdom, awareness, and total knowing.
Neale Donald Walsch
My husband doesn’t have to try to add to my comedy he just does being himself and saying & doing the things he does. We have a good friendship & I think couples can relate to our dynamic and sometimes out lack of dynamics too.
Heather McDonald
Preparation is not only about managing external risks, but about limiting the likelihood that you’ll unwittingly add to them. When you’re the author of your own fate, you don’t want to write a tragedy. Aside from anything else, the possibility of a sequel is nonexistent.
Chris Hadfield
Take a job, do it for ten years and work at it, and you’ll succeed. Can I just add, take a job that you enjoy. If you don’t enjoy the job, it’s going to be a decade of hell.
Eric Bolling
Only add
Deeds to thy knowledge answerable, add faith,
Add virtue, patience, temperance, add love,
By name to come call’d charity, the soul
Of all the rest; then wilt thou not be loath
To leave this Paradise, but shall possess
A Paradise within thee, happier far.
John Milton
The water was not fit to drink. To make it palatable, we had to add whisky. By diligent effort, I learned to like it.
Winston Churchill
I feel like we have so much to add to this book called the American Dream, and I want to add our chapter to it. I want to talk about what it means to be brown American and this concept of what I feel is the New Brown America.
Hasan Minhaj
We didn’t start at ‘Fallout 3’ and think about how to add to that. We take a step back and think, ‘Okay, if we look at all the ‘Fallout’ games, what would a new one feel like?’ So the focus is not ”Fallout 3′ plus this’. Then we start really digging into the world.
Todd Howard
I wish you would add an index rerum, that when the reader recollects any incident he may easily find it.
Samuel Johnson
I found with this record I had to really be strong-willed, because in the past I’ve tended to tinker and add a thing or take a thing away, and nearly always been wrong.
Elvis Costello
Street circuits mean that we are racing in the centre of roads that people use everyday, which is very cool for drivers, but it also makes it very easy to make a mistake, which adds more excitement for fans.
Sam Bird
I must add… my gratitude to you for the attention with which you have listened to me, for, from my numerous observations, our Liberals are never capable of letting anyone else have a conviction of his own without at once meeting their opponent with abuse or even something worse.
Fyodor Dostoevsky
To reduce this claim of slavery to an absurdity, it is only necessary to add that there are only two states in which slaves are a majority, and not one in which the slaveholders are not a very disproportionate minority.
William H. Seward
A new thing I’ve been doing is just making sure I clear off my desk and try to only touch a piece of paper once, so I get the mail, open it up, deal with it then. My son’s homework, or what I get from his teachers, the same way. That way, it’s not nagging me, things to add to my to-do list.
Adina Porter
I have a harder time eating properly than I do exercising. It’s easier for me to add an activity than to deny myself something. And when I do lose the weight, I don’t like that it makes me feel good about myself. It’s not who I am.
Carrie Fisher
DMT seems to argue, convincingly I might add, that the world is made entirely of something, for want of a better word, we would have to call magic.
Terence McKenna
I think, in a career, you have several breaks that lead to a big break. Small things here and there all add up to cracking away at the dam. Then the dam breaks.
Mike Colter
My mountaineering skills are not important to my best photographs, but they do add a component to my work that is definitely a bit different than that of most photographers.
Galen Rowell
I’m going to introduce BookShots, which are these under-150-page books that I’m launching, and they’re under $5. They just launched in Australia. I already had a ton of content, but now add 50 books a year of content.
James Patterson
Vigor is contagious, and whatever makes us either think or feel strongly adds to our power and enlarges our field of action.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
There’s so much negativity on social media, I don’t want to add to that.
Shawn Mendes
Poetry, at all times, exercises two distinct functions: it may reveal, it may unveil to every eye, the ideal aspects of common thingsor it may actually add to the number of motives poetic and uncommon in themselves, by the imaginative creation of things that are ideal from their very birth.
Walter Pater
I’m a big believer in everybody being themselves. If not doing a swimsuit calendar is yourself, that’s great. But if doing a swimsuit calendar is yourself, then you should be able to do it. What I do outside the car adds to who I am and expresses a different side of me.
Danica Patrick
The generous mind adds dignity to every act, and nothing misbecomes it.
In every life, no matter how full or empty ones purse, there is tragedy. It is the one promise life always fulfills. Thus, happiness is a gift, and the trick is not to expect it, but to delight in it when it comes, and to add to other peoples store of it.
Charles Dickens
I appreciate the little things in life because it adds up to everything.
Lisa M
I might add that you change as a person as you grow older, so you change as a writer, too.
Terry Brooks
That knowledge which adds greatness to character is knowledge so handled as to transform every phase of immediate experience.
Alfred North Whitehead
I like to get people moving and jumping. I think it’s good to add more emotion and chaos.
Chuck Palahniuk
Be intentional to add value to every person you meet everyday.
John C. Maxwell
Normally, learning lines is fairly easy for me, but when you add an accent onto that, it adds a complexity that I had not anticipated.
Rachel Skarsten
A little danger adds spice to life.
Megan Whalen Turner
Think of all your experiences as a huge tapestry that can be laid out in whatever pattern you wish. Each day you add a new thread to the weaving. Do you craft a curtain to hide behind, or do you fashion a magic carpet that will care you to unequaled heights?
Tony Robbins
In a virtuous action, I properly am; in a virtuous act, I add to the world; I plant into deserts conquered from Chaos and Nothing, and see the darkness receding on the limits of the horizon.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Be always displeased with what you are if you wish to be what you are not. Always add, always walk, always proceed. Neither stand still nor go back nor deviate.
Saint Augustine
Creativity is the result of a struggle between vitality and form. As anyone who has tried to write a sonnet or scan poetry, is aware, the form ideally do not take away from the creativity but may add to it.
Rollo May
I want to attack and to lead my life with vigor, but I’m in the watching stage at the moment. Younger actors feel pressure to bring a pop to every scene; as the roles get bigger, I’m finding you can add layers and do less scene-to-scene.
Timothee Chalamet
These are big trade-offs for a simple piece of cake – add five hundred calories, subtract well-being, allure, and self-esteem – and the feelings behind them are anything but vain or shallow.
Caroline Knapp
So many famous iconic American songs are protest songs, and I think that the vast majority of artists will only continue to add to that body of work.
Liv Bruce
To add to truth distracts from it.
Alex Toth
I don’t make the distinction between whether or not I’m going to do a TV show or movies. It’s all based on material. It’s about whatever comes along that I think I can add the most to, bring something to the character, and have some fun with.
Billy Burke
I suggest in my own discussion of this episode, Mann invites us to set the attempt to philosophize about his predicament in the context of Aschenbach’s life. The literary presentation thus adds to the naked philosophical skeleton.
Philip Kitcher
Every time I feel like something is missing from a dish, I think, ‘Oh, I know, I’ll add a pinch of dry ginger.’ If it’s not salt and it’s not vinegar, it’s probably missing dry ginger.
Alex Guarnaschelli
Capital is money, capital is commodities. By virtue of it being value, it has acquired the occult ability to add value to itself. It brings forth living offspring, or, at the least, lays golden eggs.
Karl Marx
The picture placed the busts between
Adds to the thought much strength;
Wisdom and Wit are little seen,
But Folly’s at full length.
Jane Brereton
We must add our voices to those who cry out that there is a standard below which we will not allow human beings to live, and that that standard is not at the freezing nor starving point….In a democracy all are responsible.
Hannah G. Solomon
All topics, issues, and subjects in ‘The Room’ add to the depth of the characters in the movie, and they are equally important.
Tommy Wiseau
If we say a little it is easy to add, but having said too much it is hard to withdraw and never can it be done so quickly as to hinder the harm of our success.
Saint Francis de Sales
Physical perfection, working out, adds to your spiritual perfection if that is your intent.
Frederick Lenz
The Tort Tax adds to the cost of everything we buy because businesses and manufacturers have to cover themselves and their employees – just in case they get sued by a greedy personal injury lawyer.
Dennis Hastert
The passion, the competitiveness, the swinging for the fences, it adds up.
Donny Deutsch
I am blessed with a good metabolism, and as long as I work out, carbs don’t add to my weight. If I need a leaner, meaner look for a film, I go off carbs for a bit.
Arjun Rampal
The religious hypothesis, therefore, must be considered only as a particular method of accounting for the visible phenomena of the universe: but no just reasoner will ever presume to infer from it any single fact, and alter or add to the phenomena, in any single particular.
David Hume
I have extreme ADD, and I’m into all kinds of stuff.
Of what use is a long life, if we amend so little? Alas, a long life often adds to our sins rather than to our virtue!
Thomas a Kempis
The way to attack the entitlements problem is to bring the jobs home. This could be done by taxing corporations according to the location, domestic or foreign, at which they add value to their product.
Paul Craig Roberts
Fantasy has had some problems with being too repetitive, in my opinion. I try to read what other people are doing – and say, ‘How can I add to this rather than just recycle it? How can I stand on Tolkien’s shoulders rather than stand tied to his kneecaps?’
Brandon Sanderson
“I am not much of a mathematician,” said the cigarette, “but I can add to a man’s nervous troubles, I can subtract from his physical energy, I can multiply his aches and pains, I can divide his mental powers, I take interest from his work, and discount his chances for success.”
David Starr Jordan
A new yogi doesn’t handstand on their first try, and a new teacher doesn’t start out as a headliner. Be patient, and trust it’s all going to add up and unfold in due time.
Kathryn Budig
I may add that we have more than once stated our willingness to conclude nonaggression pacts with the states neighboring our own!
Adolf Hitler
I felt it would to add a great deal to my legend for eccentricity.
Roger Ebert
You are perfect, whole and complete. You needn’t add anything to yourself to experience your true power.
Doreen Virtue
When you accept the fact that God is determined about you and you add to it your determination about Him, I am telling you there’ll be no stopping you from fulfilling the absolutely God-ordained destiny He has for you.
Beth Moore
A painting is above all a product of the artist’s imagination, it must never be a copy. If, at a later stage, he wants to add two or three touches from nature, of course it doesn’t spoil anything.
Edgar Degas
I started the day with some nothin’ tea. Nothin’ tea is easy to make. First, get some hot water, then add nothin’.
Andy Weir
Because I know war… because I know the horror, I don’t want to add to it. ………After the war, we felt the need to celebrate life, and for me photography was the means to achieve this.
Edouard Boubat
Forget the fake syrupy stuff. Melt down a bar of chocolate, mix it into some warmed up whipping cream, and put it on top of ice cream. Add some sprinkles, and you’ve got a delicious treat.
Blake Lively
I believe in love and lust and sex and romance. I don’t want everything to add up to some perfect equation. I want mess and chaos. I want someone to go crazy out of his mind for me. I want to feel passion and heat and sweat and madness. I want valenties and cupids and all of that crap. I want it all.
Barbra Streisand
Not everyone would choose to pay the costly price of being a great artist. To many, the riches of life are quite different. A skill in day-to-day living which adds up to a happy, love-filled life is success. You can have this and other riches, too. The choice is yours.
W. Clement Stone
Of course, we would love to know more about the exact moment of Big Bang, but interposing an outside intelligence does nothing to add to that knowledge, as we still know nothing about the creation of that intelligence.
Richard Dawkins
Every generation reinvents the wheel – and in the process it often adds to rather than subtracts from a woman’s burdens.
Barbara Grizzuti Harrison
Breakfast is my favorite way to start off the day. This is usually what I order every morning on set: egg whites scrambled with broccoli and a side of well-done turkey bacon. Sometimes I add a bit of feta cheese.
Cassie Scerbo
I am sure I have heard this several times from places I can’t recall, but it’s not already in the Gaia Quotes database, so I add this profound insight from the fields of psychological healing and spiritual evolution. It sure has helped me.
Robert Frost
Your own experience keeps taking you towards something. My book adds the hope that it’s a better something.
Moon Unit Zappa
Painting is similar to music. You get a couple or words or notes or chords that excite you, and you just follow them and add a bit more and see where it takes you. That’s the thrill for me. It still is a thrill, which is amazing after all this time.
Paul McCartney
Children add to the wonder of being alive.
Herbert Hoover
The oath adds nothing to the obligation. For a covenant, if lawful, binds in the sight of God, without the oath, as much as with it; if unlawful, bindeth not at all, though it be confirmed with an oath.
Thomas Hobbes
If you’re able to build from your falls you’ll be unstoppable and damn near fearless. You see, every time you fall down and get back up, you add another piece of body armor to yourself. You learn what not to do, how to do better, and how to create comfort through practice.
Chris Hardwick
A willing heart adds feather to the heel.
Joanna Baillie
You must set down all the rules to your cat at the beginning of your relationship. You cannot add rules as you go along. Once these rules are set, you must never, under any circumstances, break any of them. Dare to break a rule, and you will never live it down. Trust me.
Kathy Young
Each of us has a creation tale – how we came into this world. And I’ll add this: each of us has an uncreation tale – how our lives came apart. That which undoes us. Sooner or later, it will claim you. Mark you. More than your creation.
Michael Hainey
Spray a book with insect spray, drop it in a bag, add some mothballs and seal it. Put it in another bag and seal it. Another. The packages piled up on the floor, each a book sealed in four plastic envelopes.
Larry Niven
The way of peace is a soul journey. . . . If you can live from the level of your soul, you are doing something very special. The important thing is how much consciousness you add to the whole of human existence, for that is how eternity expresses itself, like a lamp shining through the window of eternity.
Deepak Chopra
A library is never complete. That’s the joy of it. We are always seeking one more book to add to our collection.
Catherynne M. Valente
The general belief is that communists in the United Nations come only from the Iron Curtain countries, but this isn’t so. We must remember that many of the representatives of free countries are members of the local Communist parties. If you add them all up, you will see they have an amazing degree of control.
G. Edward Griffin
The first thing I tell clients is get off the couch! Just start making some small lifestyle changes such as walking to work instead of driving or taking the stairs instead of the lift. The small things you can change all add up.
Jessie Pavelka
All day long I add up columns of figures and make everything balanced. I come home. I sit down. I look at a Kandinsky and it’s wonderful.
Solomon R. Guggenheim
Art can help a town by attracting a certain Bohemian population that adds life to the bars, character to the streets and a buzz to the name. Employers may then follow. But art can’t do much if every town does it. There aren’t enough Bohemians.
Evan Davis
Wine is inspiring and adds greatly to the joy of living.
Napoleon Bonaparte
But I have to add – and this answers your other question – this catholicity in time and in space is only meaningful for me if there is, at the same time, a concentration on the Gospel.
Hans Kung
Physics is nothing but the ABC’s. Nature is an equation with an unknown, a Hebrew word which is written only with consonants to which reason has to add the dots.
Johann Georg Hamann
Write. No amount of self-inflicted misery, altered states, black pullovers or being publicly obnoxious will ever add up to your being a writer. Writers write. On you go.
A.L. Kennedy
You’ve no future unless you add value, create projects.
Rosabeth Moss Kanter
I’d never bought the idea that you don’t lose money by underestimating the intelligence of the audience. Although perhaps I should add that I’ve never really made that much money.
John Lloyd
Our main task is not to see that people of great wealth add to it, but that those without much money have a greater chance to earn some.
Mitch Daniels
At some point, every once in a while, through the year, I’ll make up a list of all my current ideas. And then I’ll add a few add a few, and I just realize that I’m going to die before I get them all done. But it’s kind of nice – I’m never gonna be bored.
Matt Kindt
Sirs, I have tested your machine. It adds a new terror to life and makes death a long-felt want.
Herbert Beerbohm Tree
It’s fun to go to a supermarket or a park or a shopping mall where human beings convene. They’re so caught up in their own personal reality as to not see life, except in terms that add to or detract from their movie.
Frederick Lenz
I’m twitchy. I think I’ve got ADD. I find it hard to sit down. I need to be constantly challenged; otherwise, I get very… well, I guess ‘bored’ is the word.
Sam Taylor-Johnson
The word mystical is an even worse word than spirituality – that artists take drugs, and then they add some crazy extra thing to what we all know is real. But our job as artists or as human beings is to investigate what we really think is real.
Chris Martin
The larger picture here is that a North Korea with nuclear weapons adds to the larger proliferation risk.
Susan Rice
Women have the genius of charity. A man gives but his gold; a woman adds to it her sympathy.
Ernest Legouve
One of my personality defects, perhaps, is that I’m rather ADD, and I work on a bunch of things at once.
Jack Abramoff
You have to add something of yourself to the portrayal.
Everett McGill
But as no two (theoreticians) agree on this (skin friction) or any other subject, some not agreeing today with what they wrote a year ago, I think we might put down all their results, add them together, and then divide by the number of mathematicians, and thus find the average coefficient of error. (1908)
Hiram Maxim
If you get the best people on your team, you’ve got plenty of time to do the things you like to do and can add more value to.
Jack Welch
My position now, especially in this town, adds an element of skepticism with people you meet – especially girls. I mean, it becomes a lot more difficult.
Jason Biggs
If you will thank me ” he replied let it be for yourself alone. That the wish of giving happiness to you might add force to the other inducements which led me on I shall not attempt to deny. But your family owe me nothing. Much as I respect them I believe I thought only of you.
Jane Austen
Everything you do either adds to the beauty of the world or takes away from it.
Mother Antonia
I write 1,000-1,500 words. The next day, I rewrite it and add 1,000-1,500 words to the end of it.
Patrick Ness
When you take an energetic song and add it to one of the most energetic live performance set’s you get pure mayhem…which is what the fans want to see!
Machine Gun Kelly
I write for no other purpose than to add to the beauty that now belongs to me. I write a book for no other reason than to add three or four hundred acres to my magnificent estate.
Jack London
Data can generally travel the speed of light unless networks are congested. When there’s congestion, usually the cheapest and best thing is simply to add capacity generally, not to prioritize certain sites over others.
Marvin Ammori
Libraries promote the sharing of knowledge, connecting people of all ages with valuable information resources. These dynamic and modern institutions, and the librarians who staff them, add immeasurably to our quality of life.
George W. Bush
I am bound to add that the excess in too little has ever proved in me more dangerous than the excess in too much; the last may cause indigestion, but the first causes death.
Giacomo Casanova
A high truth, indeed, fairly, finely, and skilfully wrought out, brightening at every step, and crowning the final development of a work of fiction, may add an artistic glory, but is never
any truer, and seldom any more evident, at the last page than at the first.
Nathaniel Hawthorne
I should estimate that in my experience most troubles and most possibilities for improvement add up to the proportions something like this: 94% belongs to the system responsibility of management 6% special
W. Edwards Deming
When I build something for somebody, I always add $50 million or $60 million onto the price. My guys come in, they say it’s going to cost $75 million. I say it’s going to cost $125 million, and I build it for $100 million. Basically, I did a lousy job. But they think I did a great job.
Donald Trump
The first reason why I started to use the [electric] keyboard is because I really like the bending sound of the guitar and bass player. I can’t bend the piano sound. I really like the feel behind it. I feel it adds flavour and character to my music.
There’s a game called Checkout where there’s grocery items and it’s how much you think the manufacturer’s suggested retail price is and we add up your total, then your total has to be within $2 of the regular total. I don’t think I could ever win that game.
Drew Carey
I believe that whatever squad I join, I can add to it. It might take some time, but that’s what I’m there for.
Jack Rodwell
A lot of NBA GMs have asked me about me why I changed my middle name to Trill. Actually, the reason why I filed the paperwork to change my name was so that I could officially add my mother’s last name, Stein, to my own. My mom is my best friend, and I wanted to honor her.
Willie Cauley-Stein
The first steps in the path of discovery, and the first approximate measures, are those which add most to the existing knowledge of mankind.
Charles Babbage
The American Constitution is a written instrument full and complete in itself. No Court in America, no Congress, no President, can add a single word thereto, or take a single word threreto. It is a great national enactment done by the people, and can only be altered, amended, or added to by the people.
Frederick Douglass
PARDON, v. To remit a penalty and restore to the life of crime. To add to the lure of crime the temptation of ingratitude.
Ambrose Bierce
I could not think of being unkind, even to a mortal enemy. It would hurt me. I see so much unkindness in the world, and there is no excuse for me to add to it.
Paramahansa Yogananda
If you have religious faith, very good, you can add on secular ethics, then religious belief, add on it, very good. But even those people who have no interest about religion, okay, it’s not religion, but you can train through education.
Dalai Lama
I was hoping to build a country and add to its literature. That’s why I served in World War II, and that’s why I wrote books.
Kurt Vonnegut
Perhaps his tragedy is that he is the one normal writer left on earth and it is this that adds to his isolation and so to his sense of guilt.
Malcolm Lowry
I’ve got a funny way of looking at things. It’s because I’m dyslexic, and I was diagnosed with ADD when I was younger. And I’m left-handed as well.
Lee Ryan
The fact of the attempted suicide by Augusto Martinez was explained in a concise and exact form by our government in a communique. There is absolutely nothing else to add.
Che Guevara
Knitters just can’t watch TV without doing something else. Knitters just can’t wait in line, knitters just can’t sit waiting at the doctor’s office. Knitters need knitting to add a layer of interest in other, less constructive ways.
Stephanie Pearl-McPhee
End racial and ethnic gerrymandering, stop voter I.D. laws that seek to suppress voters of color, and make sure everyone can add their voice and their vote to this great democracy.
Beto O’Rourke
The Analytical Engine, on the contrary, can either add, subtract, multiply or divide with equal facility; and performs each of these four operations in a direct manner, without the aid of any of the other three.
Ada Lovelace
Scientifically speaking, the existence of God is an untenable hypothesis. It’s not well-defined, it’s completely unnecessary to fit the data, and it adds unhelpful layers of complexity without any corresponding increase in understanding.
Sean M. Carroll
I like to take mustard baths. I combine 4 lbs Epsom salts, 3 oz mustard powder, 12 oz powdered milk, and 1/2 cup baking soda, add in 12 drops each of rosemary and eucalyptus essential oils, then whisk it and pour 1/4 cup of the mix into the tub while warm water is running.
Natalie Coughlin
You can always use a toilet seat cover from the stall. It will absorb excess oil, and if you add powder on top, your makeup will be completely refreshed – even if you’ve been wearing makeup for 6 hours. It’s a cool trick to get your makeup looking perfect all over again.
Manny MUA
A designer knows he has achieved perfection not when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
If history reveals any categorical truth, it is that an insufficient taste for evidence regularly brings out the worst in us. Add weapons of mass destruction to this diabolical clockwork, and you have . . . a recipe for the fall of civilization.
Sam Harris
I used to do my own taxes. You know how you buy that gigantic sheet at Staples, add up the restaurants, clothes, and taxis and glue your receipts into the book month by month? The more money I made, the more complicated things got.
Heidi Klum
In Mali, you hear music everywhere. What is fantastic in Mali is the music tradition is handed down from father to son orally. It is not written. You learn from your father and add something, because you are living now and telling a story to others. This results in many different interpretations of the same song.
Ludovico Einaudi
It takes these very simple-minded instructions – ‘Go fetch a number, add it to this number, put the result there, perceive if it’s greater than this other number’ – but executes them at a rate of, let’s say, 1,000,000 per second. At 1,000,000 per second, the results appear to be magic.
Steve Jobs
I want to release six songs, let people listen to those, let them chill for a second, do a tour, release another six songs, chill for a second and then take my favorite four, put them on the album, and add some more.
Bebe Rexha
To design is much more than simply to assemble, to order, or even to edit: it is to add value and meaning, to illuminate, to simplify, to clarify, to modify, to dignify, to dramatize, to persuade, and perhaps even to amuse. To design is to transform prose into poetry.
Paul Rand
A brushstroke of vanity is good to add into the mix, to balance your timidity. We’re all blessed with a lot of timidity and a lot of worry and anxiety, and vanity is a good antidote.
Mel Brooks
An odd phrase, “by heart,” he would add, as though poems were stored in the bloodstream.
A. S. Byatt
When I first joined the Irvine Company, I realized that less than 11,000 acres were designated as open space in the original master plan, and that just didn’t seem adequate to me. So, I began the lengthy process working with public and community organizations to add more open space.
Donald Bren
Once you realize just the sort of glut of books that exists out there, it does become incumbent on you not to add to it unless you have a damn good reason.
Walter Kirn
All ages serve and worship the same God, gather under the same gospel and add to the collective song that praises the faithfulness of God as each generation shares in his promises to us.
Keith Getty
I naturally think in terms of comedy whenever I see anything because tragedy is so close to comedy, so I like to add the tragedy to the comedy or a little bit of comedy to the tragedy in order to make them both feel more real to me.
Amy Hill
Achievers can almost literally taste success because they imagine their goals in such vivid detail. Setbacks only seem to add spice and favor to the final taste of victory.
Denis Waitley
You need more than just a great idea. Your product or service must add an enormous amount of value to some industry. If the idea isn’t completely new, it has to be better, cheaper, or more efficient than what we already have.
Jose Ferreira
I love pointy nails! A cute way to add a pop of color to your nails is to make a V-shape at the ends of them in a pastel color.
Bella Thorne
I asked him what he wanted to do for his career, and he replied that he wanted to go into a particular field, but thought he should work for McKinsey for a few years first to add to his resume. To me that’s like saving sex for your old age. It makes no sense.
Warren Buffett
The person who creates from the noise simply adds to the noise. The person who creates from a place of listening, however, can actually make something worthwhile and enjoy his work in the process.
Michael Gungor
If you put the talent of all my brothers together, they wouldn’t add up to the talent that was in my father.
David Cassidy
I have ADD. I can’t pay attention to one thing too long.
Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu
I focus a lot on my voice because I want it to be an instrument as well. I want my voice to add color.
Theophilus London
I do Facebook, but I only have my friends and family on it, and they always laugh at me for how little I post. I don’t know how to upload photos, so I never add pictures.
Joanne Froggatt
The function of good journalism is to take information and add value to it.
John Chancellor
There are too many steps in this castle, and it seems to me they add a few every night, just to vex me” – Maester Cressen
George R. R. Martin
Not every time someone gets hit these days with a kick, they don’t necessarily take a flat-back. Maybe less flat-backs add time to a career, but if they miss some of it, it just seems like you’re done.
Sean Waltman
All the fascination of King Solomon’s Mines seems to be behind those great mountains and this I may add is a bit of advance work for mother, an entering wedge to my disappearing from sight for years and years in the Congo.
Richard Harding Davis
Aviation will give new nourishment to the religious sprit of mankind. It will add airspace to those other great heighteners of the cosmic mood: the wood, the sea, the desert.
Christian Morgenstern
Titles of honor are like the impressions on coins, which add no value to gold or silver, but only render brass current.
Laurence Sterne
It fits my ADD, so that’s good. Because I really can’t focus on anything for too long. And ‘Top Gear’s really the easiest thing to do because I’m with my pals. It’s like coming home with my friends. We’re having so much fun making the show.
Adam Ferrara
All the truth in the world adds up to one big lie.
Bob Dylan
I have a secret project which adds four hours every day to the 24 hours we have. There’s a bit of time travel involved.
Sundar Pichai
And then adds with a laugh, ‘but in retrospect I think he may have been more sophisticated than we were.’
Dave Van Ronk
I love a good miso soup: it’s fermented. It really helps with the immune system. I’ll add tofu, carrots and seaweed.
Tia Mowry
The creation by word-power of something out of nothing–what is that but magic? And, may I add, what is that but literature?
Aldous Huxley
I once worked in a pub. I couldn’t add up to save my life, but I could pull the pints.
Pauline Quirke
… All ideas need to be heard, because each idea contains one aspect of the truth. By examining that aspect, we add to our own idea of the truth. Even ideas that have no truth in them whatsoever are useful because by disproving them, we add support to our own ideas.
John Stuart Mill
You cannot take away one atom of matter or one foot-pound of force. You cannot add to the universe one atom of matter or one foot-pound of force. As such, evolution does not come out of zero; then, where does it come from? From previous involution.
Swami Vivekananda
Because women still earn just 77 cents for every dollar men make. Those pennies add up to real money.
Lilly Ledbetter
To add an AC outlet, for example, you just drill a circular hole in the wall, tap into the wiring, add the outlet and you’re set. If you don’t want it, pull it out and plaster over it with more earth to seal the hole.
Randy Bachman
I’ve always been interested in Vietnam, feel it’s a seminal event in our nation’s history, and have explored it over the years – but I hadn’t been interested in doing a documentary about it. I felt there had been a lot done about Vietnam, and didn’t know if I could add anything new to the discussion.
Rory Kennedy
I think the Internet has definitely made it easier for people to have stuff seen, but it’s also encouraged a level of ADD, where you see so much that if it doesn’t make an impact on you immediately, you don’t look at it.
Shepard Fairey
The church acknowledges some Scientologists choose to sever communications with family members who leave. The church says it is a fundamental human right to cease communication with someone. It adds disconnection is used against expelled members and those who attack the church.
John Sweeney
You know, to preserve our job-friendly climate the Texas legislature didn’t raise taxes this last legislative session while balancing their budget and maintaining their reserves – and might I add that our budget leaves $6 billion dollars in a rainy day fund?
Rick Perry
…it is up to us to add labors to labors in order to go from strength to strength (Ps. 83:7), and to come to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ (Eph. 4:13)?
Seraphim of Sarov
Even if you need, and want, a second opinion, it can be dangerous to have people telling you what they think you ought to add, or cut, before you’ve even finished telling your story. One loses heart; one loses energy and interest. Or at least I do.
Donna Tartt
The truth is… everything counts. Everything. Everything we do and everything we say. Everything helps or hurts; everything adds to or takes away from someone else.
Countee Cullen
America’s Older Americans add great value to our Nation.
Paul Sarbanes
The Prophet had made dishonorable proposals to my wife… under cover of his asserted ‘Revelation.’… Smith told his wife Jane the Lord had commanded that he should take plural wives, to add to his glory… Joseph asked her to give him half her love; she was at liberty to keep the other half for her husband.
William Law
No family of an American hostage has ever been prosecuted for paying a ransom for the return of their loved ones. The last thing we should ever do is to add to a family’s pain.
Mark Steyn
Animals, we have been told, are taught by their organs. Yes, I would add, and so are men, but men have this further advantage that they can also teach their organs in return.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
I think I should be described as ‘bi’ – not bisexual, because I’m not – I’m gay – but ‘binational’ because I retain British nationality, and I add to it being Australian, which is like having your cake and eating it.
Miriam Margolyes
When finished writing a post, go back and add bullets, sub heads, spacing; eliminate long paragraphs or sentences.
Michael Hyatt
Interestingly, my first director’s cut was an hour and forty-one minutes. Then, the studio actually wanted to add more to the story, so we went all the way up to an hour and forty-seven minutes. After that, I made some additional cuts and now we are where we are.
Kim Jee-woon
Theology has not advanced an inch in the last 1,000 years. How much respect does a profession deserve if it cannot add to the knowledge and understanding of man?
Darrel Ray
Cato requested old men not to add the disgrace of wickedness to old age, which was accompanied with many other evils.
I think it’s great that these little various skills I have seem to add up to something, because I’m not the greatest pianist or the greatest vocalist or the greatest actor.
Tim Minchin
There is not built-in meaning to anything, we are free to add any meaning we choose to give it.
Seamus Heaney
Allow me to add that it is my conviction that the contents of Der Stuermer as such were not (incitement). During the whole 20 years, I never wrote in this connection, ‘Burn Jewish houses down; beat them to death.’ Never once did such an incitement appear in Der Stuermer.
Julius Streicher
I now add, farther, that the apostles argument is so far from proving it to be the duty of people to obey, and submit to, such rulers as act in contradiction to the public good, and so to the design of their office, that it proves the direct contrary.
Jonathan Mayhew
Passing time adds false memories and modifies real ones.
Stephen King
Rather than squander the surplus on tax breaks for the rich, we should add a prescription drug benefit to the Medicare program, shore up Social Security, fortify our defense, provide a quality public education and offer economic assistance to rural areas.
Bennie Thompson
Nothing adds such dignity to character as the recognition of one’s self- sovereignty.
Elizabeth Cady Stanton
Beauty adds to goodness a relation to the cognitive faculty: so that “good” means that which simply pleases the appetite; while the “beautiful” is something pleasant to apprehend.
Thomas Aquinas
I was brought up to believe that the only thing worth doing was to add to the sum of accurate information in the world.
Margaret Mead
What can you possibly add to a mind that’s full, especially one that’s full of itself.
Joseph Joubert
The President’s call for more math and science students is not being heeded by his party’s leaders in Congress. They are cutting over $10 billion from student aide while refusing to fully fund No Child Left Behind. Something doesn’t add up.
Jim Clyburn
He has the power to render us happy or unhappy; to make our service light or burdensome; a pleasure or a toil. Say that his power lies in words and looks; in things so slight and insignificant that it is impossible to add and count ’em up: what then? The happiness he gives, is quite as great as if it cost a fortune.
Charles Dickens
Maintain a good balance. A personal life adds dimensions to your professional life and vice versa. It helps nurture creativity through a deeper understanding of yourself.
Kathy Ireland
We don’t so much solve our problems as we outgrow them. We add capacities and experiences that eventually make us bigger than the problems.
Carl Jung
I used to walk in a bookstore and see all these books on the walls. And I would say, ‘Who wants to hear from me? What do I have to add to all of this?’
John Grisham
You must remember the value that you add to others and not just what others have added to you. That’s how we build self-worth, which, in my opinion, is just as important as net worth.
Suze Orman
Our life is frittered away by detail. An honest man has hardly need to count more than his ten fingers, or in extreme cases he may add his ten toes, and lump the rest. Simplicity, simplicity, simplicity!
Henry David Thoreau
My view is that we have the Second Amendment rights to bear arms, and in this country my view is that we should not add new legistlation. I do not believe in new laws restricting gun ownership and gun use.
Mitt Romney
To add a library to a house is to give that house a soul.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
The good thing about playing this style that we play, you know, the progressive element of it, is that we can add in different elements of different styles. And that creates a more interesting overall sound.
John Petrucci
Once I discovered music and that you don’t need to just use words but can add a growl to the melody, that releases so much more. I never want to make music for any other reason.
I spent 23 years in the military. I think I’m in a good position to make those judgments on what is necessary in the military and what is not necessary, without buying a lot of things that would not really add to our security.
John Glenn
Take a relief. You draw it, you carve it out. Later you build it up from a flat surface. There is no other way to do a sculpture – you either add or you subtract.
Urs Fischer
I’m always going to have the puppets, probably not for the rest of my life, but I’m not going to stop doing ventriloquism anytime soon. I’m just going to add singing, recording songs, and maybe playing in a TV show.
Darci Lynne Farmer
We’re learning a lot from large international competitors… As we go international, we’re looking to add something unique to the market. And so when we do go international, it won’t just be as a taxi service.
Logan Green
As the label has developed over the years, more and more structure and tailored pieces have been added, and so, whilst the core values of the brand have remained, I feel it’s important to try new things and add more layers and dimensions to a collection every season.
Matthew Williamson
The Admiral’s using us,” he says to the kids around him. “Don’t you see that?” Most of the kids just shrug, but Hayden’s there, and he never misses an opportunity to add his peculiar wisdom to a situation. “I’d rather be used whole than in pieces,” Hayden says.
Neal Shusterman
There certainly is a tension between the relativity of simultaneity and non-locality in quantum theory, but it’s not strong enough to add up to a falsification of either side by itself.
Lee Smolin
Today is an opportunity to do something positive. Today is your chance to add new value to your life and to your world. Make the commitment to fill this day with meaningful richness and purposeful effort. This is your day to live, so do so with vigor and enthusiasm.
Ralph Marston
To become learned, each day add something. To become enlightened, each day drop something
If the boy and girl walk off into the sunset hand-in-hand in the last scene, it adds 10 million to the box office.
George Lucas
I’m not averse to being a supporting character. I try to pick parts where I can add something.
Laura Dern
Hell is probably quite similar to most Paris bistros … a bit overheated, somewhat too crowded, and a little too noisy for my tastes. The waiters will surely treat you rudely and the cashiers will always add a few extra francs to your bill but … and this is the important part … the food will be marvelous.
Henry Miller
I just like The Little Mermaid cartoon. Say what you want. I have a fish tank, it’s a long story. I have a fascination with the ocean, and you put a hot chick in there, it just adds more to it! I liked The Little Mermaid. It’s a cool movie. It’s one of those I watch over and over again.
Gabriel Iglesias
I don’t think being angry is useful or healthy, and usually when I get angry, my brain just goes right out the window. Boom, as soon as the adrenaline hits, instant stupid. Just add water and mix.
David Crosby
Like it or not, we either add to the darkness of indifference and out-and-out evil which surrounds us or we light a candle to see by.
Madeleine L’Engle
When something is iconic, if you’re very careful and delicate, you can add onto that iconography. It can expand. People have attached so much to it themselves, and connected to it, so the risks are big, but the potential is enormous, at the same time.
Hugh Dancy
If the greatest god is the stillness all the motions add up to, then we must ineluctably be included.
A. R. Ammons
At the worst possible moment, when your fund is down because cheap things have gotten cheaper, you need to have capital, to have clients who will actually love the phone call and-most of the time, if not all the time-add, rather than subtract, capital.
Seth Klarman
The camera adds ten pounds and ten thousand dollars.
Rainn Wilson
It takes 500 small details to add up to one favorable impression.
Cary Grant
You can always add something to a bike, but you come to a point where you can’t take anything away and that’s a fixed gear bike
Graeme Obree
Associating with the wise and the knowledgeable people adds to the prestige of a person.
Ali ibn Abi Talib
Long drives and tea-snacks add more fun to rainy day for me.
Amrapali Gupta
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.
Eline Powell
A visit to PГЁre Lachaise in Paris adds a year to one’s life
J. G. Ballard
A clearer and more conventional narrative would have helped the film without, in my opinion, lessening its beauty and its impact. Frankly, I’m still trying to figure out what I’m doing there and what I was supposed to add in that context! What’s more, Terry Malick himself never managed to explain it to me clearly.
Sean Penn
You have to not worry or doubt or punish yourself. All the worry, doubt and punishment will not add one second to your life, you know?
Louie Anderson
Add to this the pride of achievement; the desire to rank among the successful souls on earth, and we have the factors which have brought some of the ablest of human beings into the limelight that revealed them to an admiring world, as leaders and examples.
Lewis Howard Latimer
Does it make all the difference in the world? No. But there’s a great deal of symbolism associated with whether we’re going to add $24 billion to the debt in unwanted and unnecessary pork-barrel projects.
John McCain
In my 20s, I used to cry about why I wasn’t thinner or prettier, but I want to add that I also used to cry about things like, ‘I wish my hair would grow faster. I wish I had different shoes…’ I was an idiot… It’s a decade of tears.
Melissa McCarthy
You have to build up to green smoothies. Everyone loves fruit smoothies: you can add a handful of baby spinach to a fruit smoothie and may hardly even taste it. Next, try two. Slowly, your taste buds can adapt to more greens.
Michael Greger
I think focusing limits you. As long as nothing that I’m doing suffers from my ADD in wanting to do everything, then I want to just keep doing everything. It keeps it fresh and fun.
Drew Seeley
Canada is like several puzzles that we are all working on at the same time. Everyone has a part to add, but no one has seen the whole picture yet.
B. W. Powe
I bought some instant water one time but I didn’t know what to add to it.
Steven Wright
I add a smile to everything I wear and that has worked great for me.
David White
Once you cease to be a master, once you throw off your master’s yoke, you are no longer human rubbish, you are a human being, and all the things that adds up to. So, too, with the slaves. Once they are no longer slaves, once they are free, they are no longer noble and exalted; they are just human beings.
Jamaica Kincaid
Give me a kiss, and to that kiss a score; Then to that twenty, add a hundred more: A thousand to that hundred: so kiss on, To make that thousand up a million. Treble that million, and when that is done, Let’s kiss afresh, as when we first begun.
Robert Herrick
I acted like a pro when it came to football… Then you also add the priority and responsibility of having a daughter and having a wife that you are not only the provider for, but obviously, I want to be a good husband and father.
Will Grier
The day-to-day discomforts of prison life, combined with the big-picture realities of mass incarceration, do not add up to a party.
W. Kamau Bell
I know that some girls look up to me for certain things, like dyslexia, and that way I know that they like me for me, so it adds no pressure.
Bella Thorne
When I mount the scaffold at last these will be my farewell words to the sheriff: Say what you will against me when I am gone, but don’t forget to add, in common justice, that I was never converted to anything.
H. L. Mencken
I love San Francisco, and it offers spectacular scenery of the city, and it adds to the uplifting quality of the movie.
Tommy Wiseau
If you want to win friends, make it a point to remember them. If you remember my name, you pay me a subtle compliment; you indicate that I have made an impression on you. Remember my name and you add to my feeling of importance.
Dale Carnegie
Sitting at a candidate rally is similar to sitting in a ballyard. Both give you the opportunity to assess the technical metrics and reflect on the intangibles – what baseball calls ‘make up’ and politics calls ‘character’ – the leadership, talent and maturity to add value to a venture.
Christine Pelosi
In the end, all new schools, public or private, snobby or not, add value to the education market, making it bigger and more efficient, in the same way that Zuckerberg added wealth to the economy even for non-Facebook fans.
Amity Shlaes
You can be technically strong, and focus all your efforts on elements like casting, music, cinematography and sets, but they are all just add ons. End of the day, filmmaking is really about how well you tell a story.
Vikramaditya Motwane
A great deal of creativity is about pattern recognition, and what you need to discern patterns is tons of data. Your mind collects that data by taking note of random details and anomalies easily seen every day: quirks and changes that, eventually, add up to insights.
Margaret Heffernan
Freestyling helps me portray the emotion that I’m feeling right there instead of writing it at home and having to add to it.
Color is just in a small area of our vision, and the rest we add with the mind.
James Turrell
A leader who develops people adds; a leader who develops leaders multiplies.
John C. Maxwell
That earns him a smack with my book bag. “Ow.” He clutches his arm. “What do you have in there? Books?” A grin snakes across his face. “I like my women feisty.” He adds, “I like my broken.
Julie Anne Peters
It’s downright undignified how many blazers I’ve bought over the years. And will continue to buy. They immediately give shape and add authority. With the perfect blazer, anything is possible.
Rashida Jones
Tax reform shouldn’t add one penny to our deficit or to the tax bills of middle-class Americans.
Dianne Feinstein
I’ve always thought that one of the the great thing about physics is that you can add more digits to any numberВ and see what happens and nobody can stop you.
Randall Munroe
I’d never imagined myself in a band. So the fact that I’ve had such a long career without really naturally pursuing it is really astounding. It’s taken me a long time to accept what I do for a living and actually feel like I have anything of value to add to the equation.
Shirley Manson
There are writers whose first drafts are so lean, so skimpy, that they must go back and add words, sentences, paragraphs to make their fiction intelligible or interesting. I don’t know any of these writers.
Nancy Kress
I’m kind of ADD in that sense where if I start liking something, I’ll just learn it to the absolute max.
Jason Momoa
It’s like a painter with various layers of paint. I start with a drum loop and add keyboards, and then melodies start to take shape. The vocals happen later. I’ve never really done therapy before, but it’s a form of therapy. Everything else falls away.
Washed Out
Arms alone can give the world no permanent peace, no confident security. Arms are solely for defense – to protect from violent assault what we already have. They are only a costly insurance. They cannot add to human progress.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
The city is like poetry; it compresses all life, all races and breeds, into a small island and adds music and the accompaniment of internal engines.
E. B. White
Ask yourself this question CONSTANTLY: where can I add the most value to what matters most to me and the people who care about me?
Chris Brogan
Why is it that our young kids all across America can solve the most complex problems in a video game involving executive decision making and analytical thinking, yet we accept the fact that they can’t add or read?
Naveen Jain
I use Maybelline’s eye studio gel eyeliner and simply glide it onto the eyelids to shape the makeup. Then, I use brown eyeshadow to add more detail to make my eyes look deeper.
My palate is simpler than it used to be. A young chef adds and adds and adds to the plate. As you get older, you start to take away.
Jacques Pepin
When I was born, my dad and my mom gave me names, but in Africa, when your child is born, especially close family members can suggest names they want to add on.
Dikembe Mutombo
There’s no question that California, in the last three or four years, has been privileged to add disproportionately to the economic growth of America, and to contribute to its technological productivity.
Gray Davis
Writing adds up to the conscience of our times.
Martin Firrell
I love the way my weight fluctuates in the newspapers. It was 18 stone and then people look at a bad picture of me and add a few more stone on. I think the highest was 22 stone.
Johnny Vegas
I want to suggest a feeling. It’s ridiculous to assume you can state an opinion. Somebody else can never relate to the lyric in the same way because their whole experience is different. You can only suggest, then people add their own history and experience to the lyrics.
Danielle Dax
Add love, and all the lines between right and wrong were bound to disappear.
Jodi Picoult
One of the things I love about jazz music is that intent is first and execution is second. In classical music, execution is first and intent is second, meaning that you must first learn a piece before you can truly add your interpretation to it.
Irvin Mayfield
Everything adds up to a major crisis. Humanity is faced with a global energy crisis … The core of the crisis lies in the increasing shortage of oil.
George Soros
I wanted to be as authentic as possible because, first of all, Jean Shrimpton is still alive. And, she’s interesting enough to be played accurately. I didn’t need to add things.
Karen Gillan
A meringue is really nothing but a foam. And what is a foam after all, but a big collection of bubbles? And what’s a bubble? It’s basically a very flimsy little latticework of proteins draped with water. We add sugar to this structure, which strengthens it. But things can, and do, go wrong.
Alton Brown
We are not here to fit in…we are here to be eccentric, different, perhaps strange, perhaps merely to add our small piece, our little clunky, chunky selves, to the great mosaic of being…we are here to become more and more ourselves.
James Hollis
There was a contact between a football player and a cheerleader, male I might add. That male cheerleader clipped me from the side as I was running full speed, or slower than full speed, but generally, in the upper quadrant of speed. And I hit the ground pretty good.
Les Miles
What moved us was not so much what would it do for South Africa, but there has been a great keenness on the Continent that the location of the Pan African Parliament must add to its credibility. And, so we said, fine, it’s a contribution to this process of the democratisation of the African Continent.
Thabo Mbeki
My run cannot be touched. If you want to talk about longevity, you can speak the name Hogan. If you want to talk about white-hot, selling tickets, and taking the business to a height it’s never been – and, with a hell of a supporting cast, I might add – you’re talking about Stone Cold Steve Austin.
Stone Cold Steve Austin
The challenge of a revival is how to bring something fresh. The reward is the opportunity to add different flourishes. You’re dealing with different actors, designers and a different time.
Scott Ellis
Words themselves are neutral. It’s the charge we add to them that matters
Pema Chodron
It is thought that potato water is unhealthy; and therefore do not boil potatoes in soup, but boil elsewhere, and add them when nearly cooked.
Catharine Beecher
We’re [Avocado League] trying to just urge people to add avocado into their diet. It’s healthy and full of vitamins and minerals.
Jennie Finch
Care to our coffin adds a nail, no doubt,
And every grin so merry draws one out.
John Wolcot
In the never-ending battle between order and chaos, clutter sides with chaos every time. Anything that you possess that does not add to your life or your happiness eventually becomes a burden.
John Robbins
That’s the only way that I can figure out how to live, is to say, “Well, I don’t know what this adds up to, but I can do the best I can.”
George Saunders
our great common challenge … is to free people from religion, get it out of our laws, our schools, our health systems, our government and, I would add, also our sporting events. I would really like to see some separation of church and stadium, if we could work on that.
Barbara Ehrenreich
Trying is not enough. We have to go out and set goals and measure definitive progress so that four years from now we are in a better position to add new voters to our base of support.
Kevin Madden
One cannot too soon forget his errors and misdemeanors for to dwell long upon them is to add to the offense, and repentance and sorrow can only be displaced by somewhat better, and which is as free and original as if they had not been.
Henry David Thoreau
Truths emerge from facts, but they dip forward into facts again and add to them; which facts again create or reveal new truth (the word is indifferent) and so on indefinitely. The ‘facts’ themselves meanwhile are not true. They simply are. Truth is the function of the beliefs that start and terminate among them.
William James
Most people don’t do front squats because they’re uncomfortable, and there are easier alternatives, but to really add size to the quads, they’re a must.
Phil Heath
To me, you go through things like that and you learn from it. You add it on to your life, to try to make your life better. Instead of dogging people, learn something from it. And keep stepping.
Bootsy Collins
I mean, 3-D adds a whole level of ‘oh my goodness’ to the movie in good ways and bad ways that you have to deal with. We’ve overcome any obstacle that we’ve ever had because we have a great 3-D crew, Max and the guys at Paradise 3-D.
Todd Farmer
I’ve been eating a porridge of millet for breakfast, something that my doula recommended I eat. It doesn’t taste that great, but it’s supposed to be really nourishing for the baby, and you’re not supposed to eat any gluten when you’re pregnant. I’ve been making pancakes out of it and add berries.
Margherita Missoni
We are like artists by nature, constantly we’re trying to add beauty to movements.
Renzo Gracie
We say it’s a modern American Western – two gunslingers who ride into town, fight the bad guys, kiss the girl and ride out into the sunset again. And we were always talking from the very beginning that if you’re going to have cowboys, they need a trusty horse. —Eric Kripke on the decision to add the Impala
Eric Kripke
Well, stealing bases adds some runs but very few, and you lose most of the runs that you gain by having runners caught stealing.
Bill James
The question was, in a sense, at Princeton Review, how much value was I adding as a public company CEO. I was adding less than other people might’ve… I think you want to move on when you’ve given your best work and then feel that you’re not going to add as much value moving forward.
John Katzman
The primary opportunity is to use a model or paradigm for describing ADD that’s not disease-based and doesn’t imply brain damage or what many children interpret as some type of retardation…a person must have hope; this model restores self-esteem, thus empowering individuals to change.
Thom Hartmann
It wasn’t purely Alex Ferguson’s experience that made him a good manager, because he did it when he was inexperienced. But if you’ve got the qualities needed, and then you add experience to it, someone who’s been through it, well, that has to be advantageous. There’s no doubt about that.
Roy Hodgson
The Inhumans are almost a mythological creation unto themselves. They’re royalty, and are always involved in Marvel’s cosmic events. But with the explosion of the Terrigen bomb and these new Inhumans coming to light, it brings a new street level aspect to add to the royalty aspect.
Charles Soule
A picture is a thing which requires as much knavery, as much malice, and as much vice as the perpetration of a crime. Make it untrue and add an accent of truth.
Edgar Degas
[A]ll knowledge is one. When a light brightens and illuminates a corner of a room, it adds to the general illumination of the entire room. Over and over again, scientific discoveries have provided answers to problems that had no apparent connection with the phenomena that gave rise to the discovery.
Isaac Asimov
A person who is trained to consider his actions, to undertake them deliberately, is in so far forth disciplined. Add to this ability a power to endure in an intelligently chosen course in the face of distraction, confusion, and difficulty, and you have the essence of discipline.
John Dewey
The attempt to remove evil from the world by killing a thousand evil – doers, only adds to the evil in the world.
Swami Vivekananda
I got a feeling your statements are true but all they add up to is one big lie.
Vincent Gardenia
You ask particularly after my health. I suppose that I have not many months to live; but, of course, I know nothing about it. I may add that I am enjoying existence as much as ever, and regret nothing.
Henry David Thoreau
Certain writers have it very precise and there’s not much room to add something.
Robert De Niro
My laziness is really profound. I’m really interested in where it comes from – it almost feels chemical. And we’ve all got ADD now, short attention span and all that.
Hugh Grant
Rarely do we see immediate use of innovative technologies. I believe that the future is built by small pieces that add up.
Neri Oxman
Companies can add value and simultaneously promote themselves if their product or service truly improves the lives of their customers. I mean really improve lives, not wishful thinking, rationalization. That’s the acid test.
Guy Kawasaki
If I add a negative element to the piece, you are not a villain necessarily but you bring a stronger, more negative aspect to the film, and if you don’t do that, the film goes off balance where you can’t worry about likability, you have to come in and play the part the best way that you can.
Alec Baldwin
Winter is coming, we know what’s coming with it. We can learn to live with the wildlings, or we can add them to the army of the dead.
Jon Snow
I never think that sticking slavishly to one period is successful, a touch of nostalgia adds charm. One needs light and shade because if every piece is perfect the room becomes a museum and lifeless.
Nancy Lancaster
One thing most people would agree is that climate change would add further uncertainties to our already quite tight water supply situation in China.
Ma Jun
Whatever God would want me to do… love each other and help others. I want to add, not take away.
Donna Douglas
I feel most sexy when everything comes together! I like to maintain myself by going to the gym, I love the gym. I also feel most confident when I feel most beautiful inside – it shows on the outside! If I don’t feel like putting on makeup to leave the house, I just add a slick of lipstick to make myself feel sexy
Irina Shayk
For me, the main thing is spontaneity and taking chances. You have to study and know the traditions, but then you have to play things that haven’t been played before. It becomes a balance of knowing the tradition and using your own original voice to add to it.
Dave Kikoski
Start from scratch with Jesus every day and then be picky about what you add to your life.
Bob Goff
I have extreme ADD.
JaVale McGee
It’s not how much you do, it’s how often you do it. It simply doesn’t matter if you make some monumental effort at any given time. You have it in your to give that extra little bit. You know that you could add that finishing touch. You know you can take that extra step.
Vince Poscente
As fun as it is to be the nerdy best friend. I’m capable of more than that, and I feel that I have emotions to share, and there are roles I can add something to. I just hope there are other people who are willing to take that chance on me and let me tell their stories.
Shannon Purser
If we have access to nuclear energy, that adds to our maneuverability in ensuring energy security as India marches on, on the path to accelerated development.
Manmohan Singh
The pervasive brutality in current fiction – the death, disease, dysfunction, depression, dismemberment, drug addiction, dementia, and dreary little dramas of domestic discord – is an obvious example of how language in exploitative, cynical or simply neurotic hands can add to the weariness, the darkness in the world.
Tom Robbins
When we think about labor, we usually think about motivation and payment as the same thing, but the reality is that we should probably add all kinds of things to it – meaning, creation, challenges, ownership, identity, pride, etc.
Dan Ariely
There is no question that I would be the better president. But as for the campaign, are Americans ready for a general election in which both major party candidates are ADD? Quite frankly, it could provide an opening for a third party candidate, maybe someone backed by the evil Koch brothers.
Joe Biden
‘NewsHour’ is very interested in poetry, but they’re also interested in not just that something’s cute to add on at the end of their programming, but something that actually is integrated into the news.
Natasha Trethewey
People are always going to say stupid things, and you’re always going to be able to make jokes about that, but it should be the last thing you add in, because it’s the easiest thing.
John Oliver
I’m just an actor. If it’s drama, I add as much humour as the part will stand. And if it’s a comedy, add as much drama as you can, so it balances out; you don’t wanna be too serious.
Michael Pena
A fine meal…is a delight in itself; add a glass of wine-gleaming red or translucent greenish gold-and delectation will be doubled.
Alexis Lichine
I always overwrite – really awful, long bits of script – and then I trim it down to the bare bones and then add a little bit to colour it in. At the end of all of my stories, I test for wordless comprehension. So I remove the text and see if it works by itself. And if it does, I feel that that’s a successful story.
Shaun Tan
The idea of going back to college scares me, and I didn’t even go. I went to college for one year, two semesters. If you add up the total time, I probably didn’t even go one semester.
Rush Limbaugh
The bottom line: All of your investing decisions should be grounded in your own investment policy statement. By taking a “top-down” look at your finances and writing out a road map, your policy statement will add an important element of discipline to your approach.
Lewis Schiff
Most of the time, when I make a big move, people say I am out of my mind. But I don’t think about how I can add to what I have today.
Masayoshi Son
Good composition is like a suspension bridge – each line adds strength and takes none away.
Robert Henri
With China and North Korea, you never know who you’ll fight. The faces are always changing, and suddenly young opponents come up. It’s all about winning at the Olympics, not about winning pretty. I’ll just keep trying to improve, add more muscle power, and make sure I’m the last one standing.
Saori Yoshida
