H. R. Giger

Mark Skousen
A memoir forces me to stop and remember carefully. It is an exercise in truth. In a memoir, I look at myself, my life, and the people I love the most in the mirror of the blank screen. In a memoir, feelings are more important than facts, and to write honestly, I have to confront my demons.
Isabel Allende

Su-chin Pak
As Christians we need to be patient, understanding, and kind. Instead of going on the attack, we can ask genuine questions. Instead of bristling when our narrative is summarily dismissed, we can carefully explain our way of seeing things. And when we are wrong, we won’t be afraid to say so.
Kevin DeYoung

Women of child-bearing age steadily run out of eggs by the continuous process of cell death. While reading a copy of the ‘Guardian’ carefully from cover to cover, a normal woman will have lost on average two eggs – while, typically, a normal man will have made 70,000 new sperm.
Robert Winston
I try to hit the ball along the ground, especially against fast bowlers. I also like the bat to come down in the right position and check if my body position is correct. If I’m really watching the ball carefully, then automatically I’m in a good position to hit it down the ground.
Virender Sehwag
For federal races, being able to carefully navigate the Trump Era is a significant challenge.

Ellen Ullman
I’ve done all sorts of different kinds of action. We did a thing in ‘Blood Diamond,’ the attack on Freetown, where I carefully staged the action but did not show the camera operators what we were going to film – so it has the feel of documentary, trying to capture something, and that gave it a whole different feel.

My mind started wandering. I started playing carefully, instead of playing the way that had gotten me to that point. I had to force myself to keep driving the ball.
Tracy Austin
I’m a quasi-only child. With my brother and sister, I’ve more of a tendency to be semi-maternal.

Natalie Dormer
There’s something to be said for a disregard of fashion, but it has to be a carefully curated disregard. It works best, I think, on someone under 18. After the age of, say, 40, you can end up looking like a bag lady.

Frances Hesselbein
I lost 80 percent of my wealth and then gave away over half of the rest. So I’m a man of modest means now. But if you budget carefully and watch your expenditures, you can get by on a couple billion dollars.

Growing up, I was vaguely aware of things that went on in church, because I was in the boys’ choir at the local Episcopal church. But I got the clear message that I was supposed to learn music there, and not pay too much attention to the rest of it, and I followed those instructions very carefully.
Francis Collins
I’ve done drives through Budapest and Oslo and used to drive to Sardinia, too, which is quite a journey. Drives are an adventure because I don’t plan them too carefully. I take detours depending on how I feel and usually stop and stay at places I like the look of.
Rick Astley
Being an only child, my mother reared me very carefully.
Heber J. Grant
One thing I don’t personally like is not having that privacy I used to have. Being able to do whatever I wanted to do without people recognizing me. That makes me watch what I’m doing more carefully. I’m not going to be acting no fool.
Marvin Sapp
Listen to me carefully: My father wasn’t in my life, but it feels good taking care of my kids.

Andrea Leadsom
I do like the thrill of risk-taking, but it’s always carefully calculated. I have done many high risk undertakings, but I have always measured the stakes. Not feeding the fear nor the doubt.

Guy Laliberte
I’m very careful with my media intake. I try and monitor it pretty carefully.

Crispin Blunt
I always think it’s important to choose your initial theme very carefully because you’re going to be married to it for a long time. You might have to generate an hour’s worth of music from a very short, little piece of theme.

Jeff Lindsay

Tom Cotton
Unai is very calm, composed and extremely detailed in what he expects. From Monday through to Friday, every single training session is very carefully planned.

Nelson Mandela went to jail believing in violence, and 27 years later he and his colleagues had slowly and carefully honed the skills, the incredible skills, that they needed to turn one of the most vicious governments the world has known into a democracy. And they did it in a total devotion to non-violence.
Scilla Elworthy

Our children will outwit us if they want; for when it comes to technology, they hold the higher ground. Unlike other tools passed carefully and ceremonially from one generation to the next – the sharp scissors, the car keys – this is one they understand better than we do.
Nancy Gibbs
Preparation for Monaco is a little different: you definitely build up a little bit slower throughout the weekend and pace yourself. It’s important to find the limit carefully.
Max Verstappen
For me, I have never walked a path that has been carefully crafted or charted. I have gone into territory unknown on many an occasion.
Smriti Irani
I know I’m intellectually capable of finding a series of things and making hundreds of millions. I have to get there and do it. Carefully. Legally.
Jack Abramoff
Research shows that when we read words on paper, it reduces our stress levels by nearly 70 percent. We also read more carefully than on tablets or laptops.
Margaret Heffernan
Wildlife film-makers I know tell me that the effort to portray what looks like an untouched ecosystem becomes harder every year. They have to choose their camera angles ever more carefully to exclude the evidence of destruction, travel further to find the Edens they depict.
George Monbiot
Let us carefully observe those good qualities wherein our enemies excel us; and endeavor to excel them, by avoiding what is faulty, and imitating what is excellent in them.
Meetings should be like salt – a spice sprinkled carefully to enhance a dish, not poured recklessly over every forkful. Too much salt destroys a dish. Too many meetings destroy morale and motivation.
Jason Fried
Certain times, I’ll choose my words very carefully and maybe come off a little more boring.
Miles Teller
Even the details of a rifle, which are nothing but mechanical, if they are made carefully, with attention, become beautiful, satisfying.
Michael Cimino
Everything with Marvel is on a need-to-know basis, so I didn’t officially know until the second episode I did, which I think was the 10th episode in the season. Information is carefully guarded over there. I definitely didn’t know that I was ‘Deathlok.’
J. August Richards
I don’t like food that’s too carefully arranged; it makes me think that the chef is spending too much time arranging and not enough time cooking. If I wanted a picture I’d buy a painting.
Andy Rooney
Thinking is the place where intelligent actions begin. We pause long enough to look more carefully at a situation, to see more of its character, to think about why it’s happening, to notice how it’s affecting us and others.
Margaret J. Wheatley
If you see how carefully I prepare for any kind of walk, legal or illegal, small or big, you will see that, actually, I narrow the unknown to virtually nothing. And that’s when I am ready to walk on the wire.
Philippe Petit
Make it your profitable habit to carefully study facial expressions. You can see the entire human drama in a face; you can tell its owner’s history.
Vernon Howard
We don’t have real control over death. You could die of a heart attack, a building could fall on you, you could be in an accident, you could have a fatal disease. So, how should you conduct your life? You just go ahead and live, taking reasonable precautions – like handling the mail more carefully.
Rudy Giuliani
It is true that liberty is precious; so precious that it must be carefully rationed.
Vladimir Lenin
Philanthropic dollars are precious resources, so it’s our responsibility to consider how we use them carefully. Yet few of us spend enough time doing so.
Laura Arrillaga-Andreessen
Dalton’s records, carefully preserved for a century, were destroyed during the World War II bombing of Manchester. It is not only the living who are killed in war.
Isaac Asimov
I normally try to drive carefully.
Alexander Ovechkin
If we can’t find cuts in the defense budget, we’re not looking carefully enough.
Jon Huntsman, Jr.
When I moved from Cambridge, I donated all my fiction. I carefully cut out pages the authors had autographed for me. I didn’t want those autographed books showing up on eBay.
Lois Lowry
Reaching a conclusion has to start with what the parties are arguing, but examining in all situations carefully the facts as they prove them or not prove them, the record as they create it, and then making a decision that is limited to what the law says on the facts before the judge.
Sonia Sotomayor
Architecture begins when you place two bricks carefully together.
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe
I then wrought at my trade as a tailor; carefully attended meetings for worship and discipline; and found an enlargement of gospel love in my mind, and therein a concern to visit Friends in some of the back settlements of Pennsylvania and Virginia.
John Woolman
I was thinking very carefully about going into education, becoming a teacher, maybe becoming a rabbi.
Ezra Furman
To discuss a Martin Amis book, you must first discuss the orchestrated release of a Martin Amis book. In London, which rightly prides itself on the vibrancy of its literary cottage industry, Amis is the Steve Jobs of book promoters, and his product rollouts are as carefully managed as anything Apple dreams up.
Graydon Carter
Yes, it will go through the disciplines that all puppies go through including house training and puppy walking, then at twelve month old it the training becomes a lot more rigorous which has to be done carefully otherwise you are in danger of stressing the dog.
David Blunkett
Television became defensible – and, frankly, worshipped – because the shows started to be so carefully structured, so attentive to language, and so visually interesting that they suddenly caught people’s eye.
Michelle Dean
There are things I cannot do, costumes I cannot wear. When I have taken stands on things, it is because I have thought carefully about them.
Sylvie Guillem
Corporate executives and business owners need to realize that there can be no compromise when it comes to ethics, and there are no easy shortcuts to success. Ethics need to be carefully sown into the fabric of their companies.
Vivek Wadhwa
If you want to think new thoughts that are different, then do what creative people do – get the problem reasonably clear and then refuse to look at any answers until you’ve thought the problem through carefully how you would do it, how you could slightly change the problem to be the correct one.
Richard Hamming
Politicians are good at saying how Government must do more, but we must also think carefully about where Government should do less.
Charles Kennedy
Being divorced is like being hit by a Mack truck. If you live through it, you start looking very carefully to the right and to the left.
Jean Kerr
My favourite book – ‘The Good Soldier’ by Ford Madox Ford, which I have read about 20 times – is different from my favourite author, who is Iris Murdoch. I find her books exciting and unputdownable. Her characters are so carefully studied and in-depth; I love that.
Ruth Rendell
We must carefully examine regulations that could threaten the state of Arizona’s water and power supply.
Trent Franks
Horror fans are very passionate people, and they are very much into the ‘Saw’ thing. So they watch sometimes as carefully as the writers and producers do, in terms of the way the story plays out.
Tobin Bell
After being cooked, ling cod tends to bleed out some moisture, so, before serving, let it rest a few moments on a plate. Once the moisture has been released, you can carefully pick up the fillet with a slotted spatula and transfer it to another plate for saucing. This way, you won’t sog out your beautiful sauce.
Tom Douglas
What a wonderful phenomenon it is, carefully considered, when the human eye, that jewel of organic structures, concentrates its moist brilliance on another human creature!
Thomas Mann
I’ve always thought that the balance between the side of my mind that knows what it is doing and the side that really hasn’t got a clue has to be carefully maintained because if you write too knowingly then you get chilly, and if you write too unknowingly you write bollocks that nobody else can understand.
Andrew Motion
As Virginia’s lieutenant governor, I genuinely believe that Democrats and Republicans should be able to agree that reducing unintended pregnancies, decreasing abortion rates and improving the health of mothers and infants are important public health goals that should be carefully considered and debated.
Ralph Northam
I want to sustain the good name that I earned acting in ‘Azhagiya Theeyae.’ I am selecting my roles very carefully.
Navya Nair
I think women are very ambidextrous. We don’t think twice about reading a book or a movie starring guys. But for guys, it’s, like, ‘Oh my God, that’s a woman thing.’ So with my son, I very carefully portion out the female heroes and characters to make sure he’s getting an equal amount.
Gillian Flynn
I have to chose my words carefully.
Bubba Watson
Our nation’s founding fathers carefully crafted a Bill of Rights – an articulation of personal liberties woven into the entire fabric of our free society. When any of those freedoms are threatened anywhere, they must be defended and protected everywhere.
Wayne LaPierre
Writing is sort of like chess for me. You have to think carefully before you move, thinking, planning.
I started watching movies more carefully, watching actors – the way they act, the way the movie is filmed, just as a hobby in a way, but also something to progress to maybe in the future.
Sergei Polunin
Yes, I have a lot of business interests. But I don’t work for just anyone, and I choose the companies very carefully.
I have lived in this world just long enough to look carefully the second time into things that I am most certain of the first time.
Josh Billings
For me a thriller is a very carefully structured story.
Jeffery Deaver
While it is quite reasonable for scientists to be skeptical of new ideas that do not fit within the accepted realm of scientific knowledge, the best science often emerges from situations where results carefully obtained do not fit within the accepted paradigms.
Stanley B. Prusiner
Dawn was written well before 9/11. People speak a lot today about the banality of evil, but not all evil is banal. Some of it is carefully structured and well-thought-out. That’s where the real danger lies.
Alan Dean Foster
You know, when you look carefully at stuff that you deal with everyday, applying a little creativity to it and thinking outside the box, it’s amazing what you can do.
Jamie Hyneman
I’ve chosen all my films very carefully. I know that I’ve had better parts in some films than in others. But the films I do are the ones I want to see when I read the screenplays. I guess you can basically say that I’ve just done things I loved when I read them.
Mary Steenburgen
You might not have the things you want, but if you check carefully, you got all you need.
Mr. T
I like putting all my eggs in one basket and then watching the basket very carefully.
Stanley Druckenmiller
I joined another circle and the leader gave us a little leaflet in very small print, asking us to read it carefully and then come prepared to ask questions. It was a technical Marxist subject and I did not understand it nor did I know what questions to ask.
Agnes Smedley
I looked long and carefully at the picture of a stag painted by Landseer – the style was good, and the brush was handled with fine effect; but he fails in copying Nature, without which the best work will be a failure.
John James Audubon
To fight for one’s country, to offer one’s very life to promote the well being of the United States, is truly a noble undertaking. But so is the vigilance of the citizen who carefully examines our leaders to see if political problems are being solved by wars simply because this seems to be the easiest solution.
Walter Dean Myers
I believe our schools will actually get better if layoffs are done carefully, such that only the very worst teachers are let go.
Whitney Tilson
I carefully evaluated every single document I disclosed to ensure that each was legitimately in the public interest. There are all sorts of documents that would have made a big impact that I didn’t turn over, because harming people isn’t my goal. Transparency is.
Edward Snowden
Choose your friends carefully. It is they who will lead you in one direction or the other.
Gordon B. Hinckley
When I climb a building, I’ve been there already, and carefully planned how to start the climb as well as how to do it.
Alain Robert
Our relationships are precious, valuable treasures from heaven, and we should handle them carefully, always looking for ways to build bridges to each other’s hearts.
Victoria Osteen
The use of computers and other mobile devices has to be so carefully controlled. As we discovered with ‘Dream School’ rather awkwardly, it can become a source of total disruption that destroys the co-operative learning experience.
David Starkey
When they put out the sales brochure when we eventually went to series, they carefully rounded Spock’s ears and made him look human so he wouldn’t scare off potential advertisers.
Gene Roddenberry
Carefully calculate the potential size of your market to make sure you can grow. Before starting Mint, I knew that there were about 20 million people who had purchased ‘Quicken’ or ‘Microsoft Money’ over the years, and 80 million people using online banking in the U.S. alone.
Aaron Patzer
Spare me the carefully thought out accessorising that is supposed to look casually thrown on, while in actuality, hours have been spent on the picking and choosing of said jewellery, scarves, etc. Unless you are Keith Richards and can absolutely pull it off, less is more.
Emma Ishta
In a strange way, Louise Erdrich is perhaps our least famous great American writer; she is not reclusive, but she is reticent, and her public appearances give the impression of a carefully controlled performance. But Erdrich has also shared many of her most intimate emotions and experiences, in some form, in her novels.
Rumaan Alam
There is also a marked global trend towards sustainable agriculture, building on traditional methods which use fewer chemical inputs, carefully manage soil and water resources, and work hand-in-hand with nature.
Helen Clark
If you can’t afford organic food and are unable to grow your own, it’s crucial to wash all inorganic produce very carefully to minimize the toxins you consume. Soak everything for 20 minutes in water with vinegar and salt or water with fresh lemon juice and salt.
Suzanne Somers
I don’t for one second spend any time thinking about carefully ingratiating myself with someone for the future.
Lawrence O’Donnell
I think that it’s an easy thing to say, that whenever women do stand up, that ‘Oh, they must hate men’ – and I’m like, ‘Well, if you listen carefully, it’s actually a lovely tutorial that I wouldn’t give to men unless I cared.’
Iliza Shlesinger
I work anywhere between three and 10 years on a project, depending on the size. My lifetime is finite. Therefore, I have to look carefully at how many projects I want to put into my lifetime.
Peter Zumthor
My mother always taught us that if people don’t agree with you, the important thing is to listen to them. But if you’ve listened to them carefully and you still think that you’re right, then you must have the courage of your convictions.
Jane Goodall
Nothing you’ll read as breaking news will ever hold a candle to the sheer beauty of settled science. Textbook science has carefully phrased explanations for new students, math derived step by step, plenty of experiments as illustration, and test problems.
Eliezer Yudkowsky
It is essential to the pure and peaceful administration of justice that all its officers keep carefully within the boundaries of their constitutional powers. Auxiliary to this, but not secondary in importance, is a due knowledge of the leading subjects for their inquiry and decision.
Levi Woodbury
Therefore, let us not despair, but instead, survey the position, consider carefully the action we must take, and then address ourselves to our common task in a mood of sober resolution and quiet confidence, without haste and without pause.
Arthur Henderson
You cannot ask somebody to be creative in 15 minutes and really think about a problem. You might have a quick idea, but to be in deep thought about a problem and really consider a problem carefully, you need long stretches of uninterrupted time.
Jason Fried
Every good businessman or woman carefully analyzes all the available facts before making a decision.
Henry Paulson
My truth – what I believe – is that there are no answers here and, if you are looking for answers, you’d better choose the question carefully.
Javier Bardem
Hope is not the basis for policy. Wise policymakers analyze major issues such as immigration carefully and look at facts and probabilities instead of just hoping for the best.
Laura Ingraham
No persons professing to be Christians should enter the marriage relation until the matter has been carefully and prayerfully considered from an elevated standpoint, to see if God can be glorified by the union.
Ellen G. White
At university, one of my areas of study was Victorian literature, so I decided to see if I could write a novel as carefully planned and constructed as those of George Eliot, but with the narrative energy of Dickens.
Michel Faber
The actions we took in the aftermath of 9/11 were harsh but necessary and effective. These steps were fully sanctioned and carefully followed. The detention and interrogation of top terrorists like Abu Zubaydah, Khalid Sheikh Muhammed and Abu Faraj al-Libbi yielded breakthroughs which have kept this country safe.
Jose Rodriguez
My family wasn’t terribly affluent and looked upon money very carefully as something that had to be saved, not spent. My father built the ducting that took air into the copper mines and made about 6 d a yard in the Thirties, which was good money back then.
Wilbur Smith
Grief is like wandering through a minefield, as my mother puts it: however carefully you tread, a sudden detonation can happen out of nowhere. A song played in a supermarket; an overheard phrase; someone in the distance who your mind cruelly suggests is your loved one for a fleeting moment.
Owen Jones
The idea of a family sitting round the kitchen table and carefully planning their future family size based on the certainty of years to come is a complete fantasy. Back in the real world, jobs are lost, livelihoods taken away, families break apart, partners leave or pass away.
David Lammy
Grateful daughters of God guard their bodies carefully, for they know they are the wellsprings of life, and they reverence life. They don’t uncover their bodies to find favor with the world. They walk in modesty to be in favor with their Father In Heaven. They know he loves them dearly.
Margaret D. Nadauld
There are a ton of qualities that can help you succeed, and the more carefully a quality has been studied, the more you know it’s worth your time and energy.
Travis Bradberry
I had no idea what I was doing when I wrote ‘Search.’ There was no carefully designed work plan. There was no theory that I was out to prove.
Tom Peters
I don’t think Batman should spend a whole movie yapping, you know? He should choose his words carefully and speak low.
Jason O’Mara
The Nobel Prize has been a disturbance at the beginning of October for some years. It would be gratifying to win, but it would be quite an ordeal, too, with all the events which go on for two days. I’d think carefully about what I was doing the day it is announced and maybe not be around, or be around, but elsewhere.
Peter Higgs
In the John Paul II days, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger had the advantage of staying in his cupboard – the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith – exchanging views only with the Pope, and speaking publicly only through carefully written missives on doctrinal issues.
Carl Bernstein
I really don’t storyboard unless it’s an action sequence of some kind, but I plan carefully.
John Lee Hancock
I was in government for 13 years and in that time only once met the head of the German security services, and that was because he was an old friend. Otherwise, I carefully avoided having anything to do with these people. They are unavoidable but not really necessary.
Helmut Schmidt
Everything that happens happens as it should, and if you observe carefully, you will find this to be so.
Marcus Aurelius
Giving employees agency over their workspace encourages them to think carefully about the conditions in which they work best, and it gives them the tools to forge that environment.
Neil Blumenthal
Frankly, as much as I love to improvise, it hasn’t been difficult to stick to the script on ‘Mad Men.’ The writing is so precise, and the story so carefully crafted, that I don’t think there’s room – or need – for ad libbing. I could never come up with dialogue as lovely as these writers do, anyway.
Rich Sommer
By having a direct stake and involvement with the process of plants growing, of having your hands in the soil and tending it carefully and with love, your world and everyone’s else’s world too, becomes a better place.
Monty Don
It seems as if everybody in the country was getting impatient to get his or her particular soldier out of the Army and to upset the carefully arranged system of points for retirement which we had arranged with the approval of the Army itself.
Henry L. Stimson
We are like petri dishes, where we can innovate, but we want to do it carefully and thoughtfully.
Kate Brown
Whatever you are doing, give it all of your attention. Prioritise what you’re going to do carefully, and then be in the moment.
Gail Kelly
Though dams and artificial lakes can have significant negative environmental impacts, when carefully considered, mitigated, and managed, the benefits of hydropower often outweigh these costs.
Seth Moulton
Mentorship is an incredibly huge responsibility. And you need to choose your mentors carefully, just like mentors choose their apprentices carefully. There has to be trust there, on a very deep level.
Jimmy Chin
Money isn’t automatically freedom. You need to look carefully at what you’re doing to earn the money before you can conclude that you are, in practice, free. This is a cost-benefit analysis we should all perform on our own lives.
John Lanchester
It has always been very important to look carefully at young people and the way they wear clothes.
Brunello Cucinelli
We then need to consider carefully how the E.U. law that is going to be imported into our own law will operate. Its processes and interpretation have always been different from our own domestic law.
Dominic Grieve
Scientists attach great importance to the human capacity for spoken language. But we also have a parallel track of nonverbal communication, which may reveal more than our carefully chosen words, and sometimes be at odds with them.
Leonard Mlodinow
I didn’t want kabobs, Afghan music, and rules that required girls to be carefully monitored. I wanted mac and cheese, country music, and independence.
Azita Ghanizada
One of the most stubborn barriers to patient empowerment is the cultural assumption that since the way professionals learned was hard, you must need to be really smart, and you need to be taught in a carefully thought out, methodical sequence.
Dave deBronkart
Because of my voice, speaking words which had been carefully chosen, women had used money they had set aside for other purposes to buy war bonds.
Kate Smith
If you carefully consider what you want to be said of you in the funeral experience, you will find your definition of success.
Stephen Covey
I have been on diets that were supervised by doctors, that were carefully supervised where I lost weight.
Roberta Flack
Despite all the drawbacks, the Internet provides a wide array of information – and some of it is being watched pretty carefully by the pros.
Gary Weiss
We should distinguish carefully skepticism about Big Government from contempt for all government.
Mitch Daniels
But I have tried to go over it very carefully, not merely what the evidence is, but with psychoanalysts and psychologists, and I think we’re just about all agreed that Lincoln and Speed did not have a homosexual relationship.
David Herbert Donald
It is very humbling to receive the Fields Medal. The words of a Fields Medallist carry a lot of weight within mathematics – for instance, in framing future directions of research – which means that I have to watch what I say more carefully now!
Terence Tao
Volume can vary a ton when you’re cooking, depending on how you measure. Do you carefully spoon the flour into a measuring cup, or do you scoop with the cup? Are you using chunky Morton kosher salt, or finer Diamond Crystal? There can be a 40 percent difference in volume depending on the brand.
Chris Morocco
It was never part of how I imagined my music, and I watched in awe at how this ukulele troubadour image suddenly devoured the Jens Lekman I had planned so carefully.
Jens Lekman
The construction of permanent sea walls can be taken up only in places where there is sea erosion due to heavy anthropogenic pressures. The locations for such non-living barriers should be determined on the basis of a carefully conducted erosion-vulnerability analysis.
M. S. Swaminathan
I always like to think I eat quite carefully.
Spencer Matthews
We have to slowly, carefully, and thoughtfully align all of our interests.
Gina Raimondo
But with carefully chosen keyboard macros to activate it, Mass Copy is quick, convenient, and powerful. Most users who have mastered it depend heavily on it. That certainly includes me.
Robert Patterson
If we investigate the vague feelings of the average man towards the arts, we find that he is timid and that he has developed a humble belief that art is something which has been invented centuries ago in countries like Greece or Italy and that all we can do about it is study it carefully and apply it.
Walter Gropius
To the best of my knowledge and of my effort, every lineage statement within ‘Roots’ is from either my African or American families’ carefully preserved oral history, much of which I have been able conventionally to corroborate with documents.
Alex Haley
In writing a weird story, I always try very carefully to achieve the right mood and atmosphere and place the emphasis where it belongs.
H. P. Lovecraft
Instead of assuming that emotional intelligence is always useful, we need to think more carefully about where and when it matters.
Adam Grant
The biggest thing I have realized was that you have to choose your collaborators very carefully, and that not everybody can like you. The process of filmmaking is so difficult, there’s no point in doing it unless you can do it the way you want.
Peter Capaldi
In a film you only get two hours to do this big arc and so you have to pick and choose your moments carefully, but with television you get to take your time and just take it episode by episode and discover new things.
Chris Zylka
I’ve been impressed, over the last 15 years, with how often the somewhat conspiratorial comments of Haitian villagers have been proven to be correct when the historical record is probed carefully.
Paul Farmer
I have to consider the amount of business that my name can do and choose my projects carefully.
Vijay Sethupathi
So, to prepare for the role, I had to take music lessons, talk to wives who had husbands overseas, and carefully study the reactions and mannerisms of a friend who was expecting.
June Allyson
In terms of client & press requests, I operate under the assumption that anything I say will be blasted out in public, so I measure my words incredibly carefully because of the scrutiny I’m under.
Zoe Quinn
We have thought carefully about how our use of typography, colour, and images can support and enhance ‘Guardian’ journalism. We have introduced a font called Guardian Headline that is simple, confident, and impactful.
Katharine Viner
