It is nice to hear yourself being compared to great players.
I wish I was better at art. I love some of the great artists of the 19th century and, compared to them, I just feel I lack this technique that they had. They have so much skill.

I’ve become very, very liberal as far as war is concerned. It’s just too terrible. I’ve been to wars and I’ve seen what happens. I know what it is to be hurt, and it’s nothing compared to these guys. To be blind for the rest of your life. To have prosthetic limbs.
All the roles that I have acted in were all special in a different way. But the role of Ri Jeong-hyeok had more warmth and innocence compared to the other roles that I have acted. I think it was more special in terms of expressing the role.
Nowadays I’m more interested in what you’d call ‘alternative.’ Lately we’ve been listening to a lot of Mumford & Sons, and Jenny Owen Youngs. I’m also pretty crazy about the Kings of Convenience, a Norwegian band that’s been compared to Simon and Garfunkel.
The facts of life are that a child who has seen war cannot be compared with a child who doesn’t know what war is except from television.

In my mind, the re-election of Richard Nixon, compared with what was available on the other side, was so much more important that I put it in just that context.

The answer has to be sought in the material conditions of the production and utilization of cattle in India compared with the production and utilization of cattle in other parts of the world.

I think what I’ve found is that in IndyCar, the balance is a bit more all over the place compared with Formula 1! You have to get used to that and work around it. Again, as a driver, you can help the situation by the way you brake and apply the throttle to make the balance better.
I have the high honor of being the only person who has been compared to Marie Antoinette, Darth Vader, and Cruella de Vil at once.

Doing a film and doing a TV show are poles apart. They are two different things, cannot be compared, but I enjoy doing both, as I love what I do.
The producers and I felt that ‘Kanchana 2’ would be the apt title when compared to ‘Muni 3.’ Because, it goes with the prequel and will immediately strike a chord with the audience.
People have compared me to Lupe Fiasco, Kanye West, Eminem, and J. Cole. They bring substance and largely are all good storytellers, and those are two of my biggest strengths.

I mean, really, compared to a senior civil servant, I’m very modestly paid!
Compared to what some of the young comics use for material today, I’m a priest.

I love pressure in a different sort of way; I enjoy the pressure of getting out and performing for the public. Being compared and judged doesn’t seem quite right to me.
I’ve been compared to Drake before and Kid Cudi.

I am much less autistic now, compared to when I was young. I remember some behaviors like picking carpet fuzz and watching spinning plates for hours. I didn’t want to be touched. I couldn’t shut out background noise. I didn’t talk until I was about 4 years old. I screamed. I hummed. But as I grew up, I improved.
When I was in my 20s it did occur to me that there was something perverted about an attitude that thought that killing somebody was a minor offence compared to kissing somebody.
I am in awe of Ken Jennings’s accomplishments, as all ‘Jeopardy!’ fans are. Simply being compared to him is an honor.
I’m still a hacker. I get paid for it now. I never received any monetary gain from the hacking I did before. The main difference in what I do now compared to what I did then is that I now do it with authorization.
If countries were people, England and France would be old men. Italy would be dead. Compared with them, America is in its 20s.
I think the big mistake in schools is trying to teach children anything, and by using fear as the basic motivation. Fear of getting failing grades, fear of not staying with your class, etc. Interest can produce learning on a scale compared to fear as a nuclear explosion to a firecracker.
If you look at the NBA compared to the WNBA we make half of one per cent of what the men are allowed to make.
The music we made then was so amateurish, compared to the rest of mainstream pop or rock and roll. But what differentiated us from what everybody else was doing in the business was the fact that you could tell that these people came from different reference areas.
I don’t like being compared to other kickers. Kicking, I’ve always felt, was my weak suit. The only area of kicking I was really proud of was that I was good under pressure. If all I had to do was worry about kicking, I’d have been much more proficient.
I’ll let you in on a secret: I can’t stand Jay Ward. I hate being compared to Rocky and Bullwinkle. It’s just a different style of humor.

I’m a really proud, happy Canadian. I think we’ve got it figured out in our country. For example, gay marriage has just been legalized in all of the U.S. and it’s like, ‘Wow, hashtag lovewins,’ but that’s not necessarily a leap forward compared to what we’ve already experienced in Canada years ago.
Researchers consistently find that most older volunteers, when compared to older nonvolunteers, have fewer functional and physical impairments, overall better health, higher life satisfaction and less depression.

As professional footballers, we are in a fortunate position compared to much of society. I think it’s important we keep this in mind and try to support those less lucky than us where we can.

In my opinion, there are fewer and fewer great goalkeepers because, with respect to when I started, they have to do so much more compared with in the past.

I’m not skinny for the wrong reasons. It’s not because I’m bulimic or anorexic or doing drugs. Compared to a lot of actresses my age, I’m actually overweight.

Writing a novel can be solitary at times compared to screenwriting, but I don’t mind that.

Child psychology and animal psychology are of relatively slight importance, as compared with the sciences which deal with the corresponding physiological problems of ontogeny and phylogeny.
There are few celebrities that I don’t know personally. And compared to the rich, most of the famous live in the poorhouse. It’s much better to be rich than famous.

I won two Golden Globes, and there was a long, long period in between the wins. That might be explained by the fact that when I first won the award, for ‘3rd Rock on the Sun,’ I satirically compared aliens on the show to the Foreign Press Association. And they did not take that well.
I call upon governments to start supporting companies to use more sustainable materials in their products instead of continuing with antiquated incentives, such as import duties on synthetic materials that are in principle much higher compared with those placed on leather goods regardless of the environmental footprint.
If we don’t get this economy going, the numbers that represent this stimulus package are going to be small compared to the loss of revenue to the federal government for our economy.
When it comes to physical strength, someone may have a stronger upper body than lower body, or a stronger right arm compared to the left arm. Similarly, we’re likely to excel in some areas of mental strength while struggling with others.

There seems to be an interest in connecting the history of the past to the present and asking whether things have really changed. Films like ‘The Contender’ and ‘Bulworth’ seem quaint compared with Trump!
Driving a stock car does not require much handling ability, at least not as compared to Grand Prix racing, because the tracks are simple banked ovals and there is almost no shifting of gears. So, qualifying becomes a test of raw nerve – of how fast a man is willing to take a curve.
I’m not an outgoing person. Compared to an average person, I am quite skeptical and pessimistic. This is different from being nervous.
America has an identity crisis. This is a relatively new country compared to the rest of the world, yet it’s the bully that fronts to know war and democracy like none other, therefore leading the global arbitration on both fronts.
There is nothing to be compared to this, ’cause we lost our brother, our hero. The world is mourning. We are mourning. The fans are mourning. It is unreal. Unbelievable.

If I have to be compared to somebody, it is to Martha Stewart.
I’m compared to Kerouac, I suppose, because he traveled and rejected middle-class values, but the similarities end there.

Nature’s imagination is so boundless compared to our own meager human imagination.
I’m not Meryl Streep. My God – she’s the greatest actor that ever lived. It’s sad that ordinary actors like me are compared to her.
Comparison is a disease. I never felt any competition, since I never compared myself to others. I only focus on my work. I never feel pressurised and do films in my style. Also, I’m very active since childhood, and that gives me the edge to always put my best.
I don’t mind being compared to Whitney, there are people miles worse to be compared to.
My family would try and trick us and I would come to a party and she would be there. When I tell you the ‘Love & Hip Hop’ scene is nothing compared to what was happening with me and mom… throwing things at each other, the cursing, the words.
Compared to what comics say today, I’m a monk, but in those days, it was unheard of to make fun of people like I did. Of course, they exaggerated how outrageous I really was.

The mysteries and scandals of the Kremlin are nothing compared to the mysteries and scandals of the Bolshoi.
It doesn’t feel great to be compared to Genelia or anyone. I don’t want to be compared, and I would like to think I am different.

Property as compared with humanity, as compared with the red blood in the American people, must take second place, not first place.
I thought my story, my experiences as a 2-year-old ‘evacuee’ from London at the outset of the war, could be important. What happened to me as a child was very light compared to what happened to many children, but… in Britain, there are so many people who just don’t know our history.
Everyone has their own traits but if you are being compared to players like Rio Ferdinand then you must be doing something well and hopefully I can keep that going.
My life is unrecognisable compared to what it was – ‘Game of Thrones’ has opened doors that were never there before. But it can be dangerous to see it in those terms, I think. It’s best to take it as it comes and work as hard as you can, and hopefully the other things fall into place.
If you were to ask me about a mistake I have made, it’s calling my fourth album, ‘New Jersey’, because for the first time in my life, we were compared to the E Street Band.
I like the House. The House is where you can effect the most change. It’s such a fast-moving dynamic body compared to the Senate.

I didn’t know I was compared to Elizabeth Montgomery, but I think that I’m in very good company with her.
I think I’ve got it pretty easy compared with somebody who works at a desk nine to five. I’m just working for an hour in the evening. I get a bit breathless, as I have to talk non-stop because of the puppets.

Going away to prison was nothing, I’m just saying, compared to losing my mom.

Everything I do will always be compared to ‘Love Song’ in terms of success or the way it’s written or whatever, but it was a really formative moment in my life and in my career.
Let’s get right to it: On page 5 of Paul Murray’s dazzling new novel, ‘Skippy Dies,’… Skippy dies. If killing your protagonist with more than 600 pages to go sounds audacious, it’s nothing compared with the literary feats Murray pulls off in this hilarious, moving and wise book.
If I take a bump or bruise along the way, that’s nothing compared to the sacrifices that the women whose shoulders I stand upon made along the way.
I want to know what changed in fully modern humans, compared with Neanderthals, that made a difference. What made it possible for us to build up these enormous societies, and spread around the globe, and develop the technology that I think no one can doubt is unique to humans.
If you ask me, a batsman has very few opportunities as compared to a bowler. A bowler knows, if he gets hit for a six or a boundary, he has another delivery left to get back and take a wicket. For a batsman, one loose shot, and you are out. A bowler will always have 24 opportunities.
Asia is changing, and China is changing. The ‘Post’ will have great opportunities. With its access to Alibaba’s resources, data, and all the relationships in our ecosystem, the ‘Post’ can report on Asia and China more accurately compared with other media that have no such access.
I don’t mind Ed Sheeran, but I wouldn’t want to be compared to a guy that builds his song around a guitar, since we do not have a guitar in our band.
Singing is the rawest thing. Having been naked in films or naked in photo shoots, it’s nothing compared to singing. It’s absolute nakedness. You are stripped bare! It’s very strange. Acting seems much easier, in fact, because you are putting on a costume – whereas here, you are taking everything off.
If the press really thinks Obama is Lincoln, they ought to treat him like they treated Bush, ’cause that’s how they treated Lincoln. His critics compared Lincoln to an ape; they called him an illiterate baboon.
What do we, as a nation, care about books? How much do you think we spend altogether on our libraries, public or private, as compared with what we spend on our horses?

Breathing and using cold, through cold showers and experiences, provides a boost of performance compared to anything that would be possible if the person had not done that.

Obviously, portraying a mermaid is a very different kind of work, especially when compared to any other character you’d probably get asked to play in a show.

I look at what I have as compared to what I don’t have. I have this, I have this, I have this. Thank God for it, and let’s move on.

‘The A-Team’ compared to making ‘Narc’ was a breeze. There’s a whole other skill set and whole other kind of bone structure that goes into making a movie like ‘Narc’ versus ‘The A-Team.’
Don’t forget we are in a state of war and no peace. But it’s very dynamic and challenging compared to the rest of the Arab world.
I come from a world where the word ‘trauma’ doesn’t exist, because we are too poor. I didn’t have an easy life compared to the average European. But compared to the average African, it wasn’t all that bad.
When I first started coming to New York in the early Nineties and seeing the vitality of the programme compared to what was going on back in London or Paris, it was just in a different league. It’s like a 16th-century court.

Compared to today’s salaries, our cut was minuscule but it was very good for the time.
I guess Zeppelin is some happy stuff compared to us. It’s pretty hippy, too.
Tech stocks are trading at a 30-year-low when compared to the multiples of industrials (companies). It’s the weirdest bubble when everyone hates everything.
Well, there’s much more time to do a weekly show, and much more coverage – as it turns out, it was all preparation for the stuff I’m doing now – but it was interesting to see how much time was spent on how little airtime, compared to knocking out a show a day on the soaps.
I have my own batting style and don’t want to be compared with Kohli.

I have a lot of respect for all the artists I get compared to, even if, as an artist, you prefer to have your own identity.
To speak, therefore, of an electric current in the nerves, is to use quite as symbolic an expression as if we compared the action of the nervous principle with light or magnetism.
Happiness is a real, objective phenomenon, scientifically verifiable. That means people and whole societies can now be measured over time and compared accurately with one another. Causes and cures for unhappiness can be quantified.
Kids of the 1980s and 1990s have had a new, huge, financially catastrophic demand on their meager post-recession earnings, too: a trillion dollars of educational debt. About a quarter of Gen Xers who went to college took out loans to do so, compared with half of Millennials.
You begin to realize that hypocrisy is not a terrible thing when you see what overt fascism is compared to sort of covert, you know, communal politics which the Congress has never been shy of indulging in.
The UFC makes about 99 percent of the money, and the rest goes to the fighters. That one percent ain’t nothing compared to what they make on merchandising, on pay-per-view, and everything else they make around the world.
Compared to running apps on a smartphone or, more aptly, an iPad, the app experience on the Samsung Chromebook Plus is distinctly subpar.
Being an MP is not a desperately hard life, like going down the pit or working in the steelworks – with which I am all too familiar, having been brought up in the city of Sheffield; and it certainly isn’t badly paid compared with any of my constituents.
Compared to what they were, rock concerts now are like business meetings.
Compared to when I was 18, 19 or 20, I would say my diet is the big difference. It is much better.
I was always around wrestling. I went to shows, but I never pictured myself where I am today. My brothers, David and Reid, were more into wrestling. When they wrestled, it was hard on my brothers because they were always compared to my dad.
I’d heard a lot of Asian people were rooting for me, but I had no idea. I was stunned. They were… impassioned, especially compared to Japan. I couldn’t even have anticipated that kind of welcome.
The fact that people can predict gravity wave sources that are within shouting distance makes me feel incredibly confident. Compared to monopoles, these sources are not just optimistic thinking.

These areas also have a greater proportion of ancient tree lineages surviving: trees have gone extinct at a higher rate in Europe compared with those other areas.
I’ve been compared to my dad my whole life. That pressure I’ve learned to deal with.
One thing I did was to create a Love Yourself List. I wrote down everything I like about myself, and put it on my bathroom mirror. Then I read it until I believed it. Any time I compared myself to others, and felt negative about myself, I’d go back to that list.

It seems always to have been difficult to have been a New York Philharmonic conductor because of the nature of New York. We are in direct competition with the great orchestras in the world who come to play in our hall or in Carnegie, and we are constantly compared. I think that ‘s a good thing.
Y’all should be happy for me. It’s funny, compared to my peers, my catalog isn’t even that big, but I’m still getting a lot of notoriety because my songs do really well. I’m working hard and minding my own business and trying to do something I’m super passionate about.
I thought that the fashion world could be a bit fake sometimes, but it’s nothing compared to Hollywood. These girls would walk over their grandmothers’ graves to get a part, and the producers talk about actresses like they’re dirt, picking over every part of them so that they end up paranoid and having surgery.
Film wise, I invariably look at my work and reckon I could have done it better. I’m also conscious that I’m in a profession where we get more praise than we should compared to the usefulness of what we do.
For merchants, it is an amazing opportunity. Compared to Paypal, crypto has no credit card fees, no charge backs, no ‘Oops, we decided to hold your cash for 3-12 months while we investigate something we can’t disclose.’
My style is too versatile to be compared to anybody.
Growing up, I had a terrible pudding-bowl haircut. I used to cut it myself, and I’d sew my own clothing, too. I looked a little strange compared to the other kids. But the thing was, I felt I looked amazing, so what other people thought never bothered me.

I’ve known Hillary Clinton for a long time. She’s trustworthy. She’s ready from Day One to assume the office of presidency in the United States. She’s qualified and she’s ready as compared to, I think, Donald Trump, who has shown his recklessness, and dangerous statements that he’s made.
The European Union cannot be compared to the United States. America is a nation, but Europe is not. Europe is a continent of many different nations with their own identities, traditions and languages. Robbing them of their national democracies does not create a European democracy – it destroys democracy in Europe.
All of the good stuff is going to be done in the future. The stuff we are doing now is crummy compared with what will finally mature.

In Kenya, e-learning has taught 12,000 nurses how to treat major diseases such as HIV and malaria, compared to the 100 nurses a year that can be taught in a classroom.

Sometimes in a Premier League game the fans are a bit quiet but in Nigeria you just hear trumpets, everything. The atmosphere is so different compared to England.
There have been some terrific player’s names being bandied around that I am being compared to and that is great. I am just able, touch wood, to take it in my stride. That’s how I am. I am not embarrassed or pressurised by it. It is just great and I want to do as well as they did.
The atoms may be compared to the letters of the alphabet, which can be put together into innumerable ways to form words. So the atoms are combined in equal variety to form what are called molecules.

For years, I was compared to Wookiees, especially after I did the ‘Star Wars Holiday Special.’ I have some photos of me with a few of the Wookiees on the set, and it’s hard to tell us apart.

When I look back now I realize I was such an obnoxious kid but, you know, I went to schools like you, like a public school in New York so compared to the anarchy that was going on there, they really wouldn’t – I wasn’t like a bad kid. I saw people come in and punch the teachers.
The un-conscious distortion of the facts is almost harmless compared to the unconscious neglect of an animal’s mental life until it verges on the unusual and marvelous.
I don’t think any two individuals, especially artistes, can be or should be compared. We are different human beings. The way we think, feel, emote is bound to be different.

UCB has been compared to a cult and a pyramid scheme, and it’s all that stuff.
As difficult as my story is, it’s nothing compared to the people I’ve worked with. And so I just want to do everything I can to make sure that America continues to be a land of opportunity and hope for people and refuge for people from all over the world.
I think that I make chords when I paint, so I think you would be listening to the cello. It’s deep, and it’s resonant. A lot of people have compared me to Brahms – that slightly melancholic sensuality that’s highly structured. Well, that describes my work right there.
There is magic in my universe, but it’s pretty low magic compared to other fantasies.
Vinyl’s like a really juicy steak compared to like a kind of tough steak or something. It’s really good. And once you listen to vinyl and get a chance to hear it, I think anyone will enjoy it more than they will digital.

I feel that women – without wishing to foster any strict separatist notions, homo or hetero – indeed have a need for their own publications and organizations. Our problems, our experiences as women are profoundly unique as compared to the other half of the human race.
I went to the doctor and he said I had acute appendicitis, and I said compared to who?
If you look at Disney’s slate compared to the other Hollywood studios, it stands out because of big titles and strong franchise films which also extend beyond cinemas, to merchandising or theme parks given the legacy of the four brands – Disney, Pixar, Marvel and now Lucasfilm.
My cooking philosophy, what I try to do, is to make a cuisine where the produce and the product shines, compared to some current trends that are maybe more adding additional things, like molecular cuisine, with a lot of additives and chemicals, which are now showing that they could be bad for your health.
I think of myself as a character actor, compared to a straight actor. I know a character actor in England is pretty much the same as in the States; you’re actually hired to put on terrible teeth and stuff like that.

I think airborne launch will be a significant part of the safety solution.
I hated being compared to anybody.

Each of us is incomplete compared to someone else – an animal’s incomplete compared to a person… and a person compared to God, who is complete only to be imaginary.

Compared to EDM, I feel like there are a lot of girls at my shows.
I think a lot of singer-songwriters get compared to each other, but I’d like to think that what I’m doing is special and specific to me.
I usually just write down what I’m doing and how I felt. How I felt if I’m skating fast, compared to if I’m skating slow or if I’m tired. I can always go back and look as a reference and see what I was doing. It’s pretty much my life on ice.
I guess the hardest thing about preparing for an album release was the fact that we had a lot more responsibility in creating a full-length, compared to a single.
