I frankly think we in the financial service world believe we need appropriate kinds of regulations. No question about that. But when something like Dodd-Frank has been created, sort of in the mystery of night, it is a huge document. It’s vast. It weighs about 10 pounds when I carry it around.
I think ‘West Side Story’ is one of the greatest, if not the greatest, musicals ever put onscreen – or stage, for that matter. I, frankly, like Zeffirelli’s ‘Romeo and Juliet’ very much, too. I grew up with that… I loved it. I loved the score; I loved the acting.

Frankly, I would never like to write an autobiography because my life is an open book.

I think America is strong enough to fix the problems, grace and honor to D.C. I think energy independence and control spending. We have to go to a balanced budget. Quite frankly, as far as our debt goes, I don’t think you can tax your way out of it. I think people are taxed enough.
I myself don’t know what makes my books work. I enter a bookstore and I’m frankly overwhelmed by the number of books in most of them, and I know people are buying mine.

The profession is never going back to those days when a handful of wealthy people treated publishing like a hobby: one where the business can lose money because the family has lots of it to burn.

Out of college, I had two job offers. One was to be a canoe instructor for Outward Bound. And frankly, that would have paid better than the job I took, working on a policy commission in Washington that focused on immigration policy and refugees. But that decision made all the difference.
Whatever I feel, I say frankly.
Frankly that’s what makes such a big difference between President Obama on one hand and Mitt Romney on the other. Gov.

Frankly, I get sick of being considered a ‘young woman filmmaker’ rather than an individual artist, as a man would be.

Frankly, seeing my plays with an audience is something I do with gritted teeth; I find the experience very difficult. I love the moment when you have just the dress rehearsal, when no one’s there; that’s kind of the peak to me. When people start filing in, I like to file out.
The American people frankly have been, over many, many years – to be blunt – fat, dumb and happy. If they want their children to compete with children in India, China or Korea, they better get them a far better education.

There’s no such thing as anybody who can’t be beat; everybody can be beat. It’s a question of how hard you’re willing to work. It’s a question of the environment, the surroundings. Frankly, there’s a lot of issues with timing.
Frankly, I love ‘Scream’: I think it’s one of the great scary/funny movies.
When we heard that America is pulling out of the Paris Agreement, that’s unfortunate, but frankly – speaking purely from my competitive juices point of view – we are delighted that somebody’s not going to look at these opportunities. They’ll be all there for us.

Frankly, we actresses are so much in a hurry. We feel we have very few years to shine in our career, so we neglect our personal life. But for me, both aspects are equally important. I don’t want to grow old and have regrets.
I frankly don’t care if you agree with my stand on abortion. I take that stand because no other stand is consistent with decent principles, and no other standard is consistent with the will of God.

Frankly, I don’t want to let trolls into my life.

Hanson is not the pop band that a lot of people think we are. I think we’re a lot more rooted in a lot of music history… we’re songwriters, we’re singers, we’re players first. We’re not entertainers, we’re not celebrities, and frankly, we don’t really want to be.
I don’t pay a lot of attention, frankly, to what Barack Obama says.
Quite frankly, I’m running a campaign on the economy and jobs and economic opportunities for the American people.

Look at the films of Walt Disney: ‘Snow White’ came out in February 1938, and I can’t think of another film from that year that’s watched as much. The same is true of ‘Bambi,’ ‘Dumbo’… even, frankly, ‘Toy Story,’ which is probably watched more than any other movie of 1995.
I think, one day, I might actually try writing a bunch of – a collection of essays maybe on the funnier side of the spectrum. I don’t know. But it’s fun to have, frankly, Twitter as kind of an outlet. When you’re writing about dark things all day, it’s kind of fun to have fun.
If I could wave a magic wand and be anything, I’d be a really respected, really successful author. That’s a hard combination to get, though. I really enjoy acting, and it’s easier, frankly.

Frankly, it’s embarrassing to have a house filled with giant portraits of yourself.
Frankly speaking, it’s only the script that matters to me the most. If I like the script, then I just commit to myself and go ahead with it. But I also look at the commitment and confidence of the director of the film because it’s him who will shape the film.
The elitist way of looking on the runway, frankly, seems old fashioned.
I don’t think I am that tough, actually. Well, tough in the sense that I don’t take any rubbish, and that doesn’t make me very popular, frankly. I mean, because some people say something to me, and I just tell them off. I mean, why should I put up with it?

I suppose the best advice I ever got, frankly the advice that changed my life, came from my uncle who told me to go to drama school and study acting instead of taking a job, because he said the job would always be there.
I was drafted by the New Orleans Saints, and quite frankly, I got worn out playing football. I got tired of it.

It was a different town 7 nights a week and twice on Sunday.
Ive been given work opportunities that many people would kill for quite frankly so you have to look at life in that perspective and just get on with it and enjoy.
Frankly, I like DVDs having lots of things on it, but I have issues with it as well, too.

My favorite sport, frankly, is college football. I’m a college football junkie, even though I’m associated with golf and like golf and have played it all my life.

Frankly, the reason I joined MENSA is because I was dating a guy at the time who spoke five languages and could solve a Rubik’s Cube literally with his eyes closed because it’s just an algorithm.
We’re adults. We’re the ones who should teach the kids what’s good to eat. I don’t think the government should ever regulate what we eat at home, but we’re feeding them in school with tax dollars. Quite frankly, if my tax dollars are being spent to feed kids, I’d rather feed them better food.
We need to develop clean, affordable, and reliable energy sources, and frankly, we need to license that technology to the rest of the world.
Frankly, TV stars are not that popular. In fact, I don’t have even have a million followers on any of social media accounts.

What I’m trying to say is the Holocaust was a horrific crime against humanity and frankly, I would never want to see that repeated.

I find it both fascinating and disconcerting when I discover yet another person who believes that writing can’t be taught. Frankly, I don’t understand this point of view.

Daniel Bryan is a friend of mine. It’s sort of funny that the relationship that you saw between Team Hell No on screen, it sometimes goes the same way off screen as well. He is a great human being and good friend of mine, and frankly, the Team Hell No stuff helped me.
As a young prosecutor, I used the Bureau of Criminal Investigation extensively. I saw that there were problems with BCI. Frankly, I thought I could fix them. I thought if I was successful, I could really make a difference as attorney general.
Frankly, I just come to the sets, complete my work and go away.
Quite frankly, I think political correctness is the worst form of censorship.

But if you are like a lot of us you are not supposed to say certain things.

Every man who says frankly and fully what he thinks is doing a public service.

The Security Council represents the situation from 1945 – you had the Allies who won the war who occupied that. The defeated guys – the Germans and Japan – were out.

I’ve heard players, and I’m talking about some of the best players in the league, question whether I’ve taken steroids or not. Some of the things I hear are pretty funny, and some people are idiots, frankly.
It was not until I had graduated from college that I made a professional commitment to it. Frankly, I didn’t think it wise. I was my own interior parental force, and it’s very difficult to justify a profession as a dancer.
We live inside a democracy, and you know, public will matters in a democracy. I just hope it’s informed public will, and frankly, when the decisions are made, you understand the costs.

It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

My associate director, Lisa Leguillou, is remarkable: flying around, visiting all the companies. She is truly the unsung hero of ‘Wicked’. She has been by my side from day one, and she is invaluable. I frankly don’t know how she does it.
So I went to WCW for three years and quite frankly, it was the most miserable three years of my life in terms of business.
You know, sometimes I think people in politics are always looking for the next job and the next opportunity. And frankly, that’s just not the way I’m wired.
One of the lessons from Sept. 11 is that America requires a long-term presence in those parts of the world that endanger us. This notion has become controversial, but frankly, the need could not be clearer.
I frankly couldn’t imagine being a series mystery-fiction writer, churning out book after book about the same viewpoint character.
Conservative humor is frankly harder than liberal humor. You get points for just being liberal. You can get more points if you make fun of your own side sometimes.
I see myself as a perennial expatriate because, frankly, I don’t think I fit comfortably in any conventional form of filmmaking, and I feel at the same time, depending on the project, I fit into many different ones.
Look at Julie Etchingham and Katie Derham, none of us are spring chickens frankly, I don’t think people want to watch someone who’s wet behind the ears, you have to look like you understand what you are reading about.
I am better suited to be behind the camera. Frankly, I don’t miss being an actor.
When I hear that I realize how quickly time passes and how everybody goes on their journeys and they’re always unbelievable and they never go where you think they’re going to take you and, quite frankly, it also makes me feel a little old.
Frankly, ‘Bride Wars’ got made because movies with women need to be about weddings and love.
Frankly, I would not have made any difference in Vietnam, but much more is what difference it would have made in me.
I love Memphis. They’ve been good to me, the town and everything else. And quite frankly, I love the NBA and love being involved in it.
Non-disabled actors should not still be playing disabled characters in 2020. We’re better than that. It’s frankly offensive and archaic and it makes me so angry I want to punch a wall.
If I’m being honest, I think I’d be good at television; I just don’t know if I am interested, because you are kind of geographically responsible to a location, and frankly I don’t know if I retired from tennis so that I could sit around tennis tournaments 12 hours a day.
We don’t live in the Garden. We live far from Eden. Every life is full of heartaches. Every life, frankly, is unspeakably sad.
When people who are not black are interested in what I do, frankly, I’m always surprised. I don’t know if it’s my low expectations for white people or what.
China, frankly, can be an opportunity for Africa based on the huge infrastructure deficit on the continent, but what needs to happen is that governments and citizens have to build internal ownership of the need of good governance, transparency, accountability, for respect for the environment.
I ran as a Democrat. I am a Democrat. And, frankly, the values that I hold, I think, are consistent with the values of the Democratic Party. In fact, I think they are the values shared by the majority of Floridians.
Given the opportunity to do another 9/11, our vicious enemy would do it today, tomorrow, and every day thereafter. I don’t know why they hate us, and I frankly don’t care, but they do hate us and are driven irrationally to our destruction.
I’ve always believed in myself, quite frankly, and believed in my abilities.
Frankly my parents didn’t like him. They objected to the things he stood for. Besides, daddy and Hef are the same age.
I don’t expect everyone to agree with me. Frankly, I’d be shocked if they did.
Quite frankly, I didn’t become an actor to become a movie star. I have never dreamed about being the most famous person on the planet. I just want to do really good work.
I really worry about the way in which you, as a celebrity, are disproportionately treated. Frankly, the industry is almost single-handedly designed to interfere with people’s moral chemistry.
I am in movies basically for the money, and frankly, I have a hard time believing those who say they act for the love of acting!
People ask me if there are going to be stories of Harry Potter as an adult. Frankly, if I wanted to, I could keep writing stories until Harry is a senior citizen, but I don’t know how many people would actually want to read about a 65 year old Harry still at Hogwarts playing bingo with Ron and Hermione.
Quite frankly, having an uninformed populace works extremely well, particularly when you have a media that doesn’t understand its responsibility and feels more like it’s an arm of a political party. They can really take advantage of an uninformed populace.
Frankly, many Fox shows are running away from the news rather than reporting on it.
Your candor is worth everything to your cause. It is refreshing to find a person with a new theory who frankly confesses that he finds difficulties, insurmountable, at least for the present.
I think America is going to have to think through whether it wants to uplift the political dialogue or advance an approach that divides and, frankly, can lead to violence.
Table talk is a part of the game, and frankly, it’s the part of the game that I enjoy most.
This is not about Republican or Democrat. It is about our children, it’s about our families, it is about our country, and frankly, ladies and gentlemen, it is about the world. We’ve got to leave here and march, and make sure Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are president and vice president of the United States.
Luckily, I’m doing other things besides just modeling, because frankly, I’m a little bored with it.
I want to say at once that I frankly believe that Irving Berlin is the greatest songwriter that has ever lived…. His songs are exquisite cameos of perfection, and each one of them is as beautiful as its neighbor. Irving Berlin remains, I think, America’s Schubert.
People have said, ‘Let’s build bridges,’ and frankly, I want to do more than that. I would like break to the walls of ignorance between East and West.
I’m used to people not paying me a whole lot of attention and underestimating me and, frankly, for me a big challenge is to have people believe that I can be the president of the United States.
I don’t want to be Tom Cruise. I’m not after some movie blockbuster career. That’s not the kind of work I’m interested in. And frankly, it’s not the kind of work I’m ever going to get.
Frankly, I’ve had the opportunity to get certain accolades, make it to the conference finals, get awards, all this other stuff that doesn’t matter. I’m looking only on championship probability. I just feel like I haven’t accomplished much unless I can somehow get that done.
I love practical jokes and humor. That there’s frankly no joke that I don’t think is funny. I love practical jokes, but I don’t like being scared.
Frankly, if people aren’t going to cast me because I’m queer, than I don’t want to work with them.
I admit clearly and frankly that early Mexican art formed my views of carving as much as anything I could do.
Quite frankly, I can’t get enough of soccer. I tell my jingoistic friends in the United States there’s a reason why it is the world’s No. 1 sport. The rest of the planet can’t be wrong.
The real problem at the moment is that the banks – because of their existing culture, which is frankly anti-business, obsession with short-term trading profits, not focusing on the long term – are throttling the recovery of British industry.
My favorite thing about acting is that I can play all kinds of different people. Frankly, I don’t consider myself a very interesting person, so the characters I play are usually much more fun.
I’m rather cynical about the way the honours system is used, frankly. A whole lot of the honours system is used for political purposes by the government in power.
I frankly think the NBA All-Star game has run its course, the whole dunk contest… The game – if those guys actually played hard in that game, it’d be the best watch ever.
I’m not sure people would think of me in this light, but frankly, what I enjoyed most about Bain & Company, the consulting firm, was the analytical process of solving tough problems.
McVeigh’s lawyer got him the death penalty, which, quite frankly, I could have done.
Frankly, I’m a drummer; and when I wanted to let off steam, I would just go and beat the hell out of my drums.

Frankly, I don’t like publicity.
Nutrition advice is, quite frankly, subjective.
Adoptive parents are taking on enormous responsibility, both emotionally and financially. Quite frankly, they need as much disclosure as possible about the child’s background and health to assure the best fit and be prepared.
If you look at the movies that come out, most of them are bad, so it’s not as if achieving some level of success means you get offered better roles, because frankly they don’t seem to exist.
My presence in the social media and on the Internet is much bigger than many of the other candidates, including Mitt Romney. So, when you take the social media and you take the Tea Party citizens movement, you have a combination there that, quite frankly, 10 years ago, I wouldn’t have had a chance.
When I have an argument with someone, even with someone I am not very close with, I can’t sleep at night thinking about it. It’s terrible. But I still manage speak out frankly because I have also been gifted with the ability to read people. I can sense when they start to get irritated with me, and then, I shift.
The notion that a contemporary woman must look mannish in order to be taken seriously as a seeker of power is frankly dismaying. This is America, not Saudi Arabia.
Frankly, I don’t mind not being President. I just mind that someone else is.
I don’t believe in a golden mean; I don’t believe you find policy wisdom between two polar points. I don’t dismiss that possibility, but I look at the platform that’s so ideologically based, that’s so dismissive of facts, of evidence, of science, and it’s frankly hard to take seriously.
Frankly I’ve never really subscribed to these adjectives tagging me as an ‘icon’, ‘superstar’, etc. I’ve always thought of myself as an actor doing his job to the best of his ability.
Frankly, I am shocked at the complete level of incompetence exhibited by lawyer after lawyer for Mr. Cohen and Mr. Trump.
I thought I was leaving elected office and politics in order to focus on schooling, but as you know, schooling turns out to be frankly even more political than politics.
It’s hard for women to talk about these things, and for the doctors to really talk about it too, and to even have the knowledge of what’s going on. That’s why I’m doing this and urging women to speak out and talk to their doctors frankly.
I am not one of those fat birds who feels miserable because models are thin. Frankly, I feel more insulted by the idea that unless I see other fat birds in fashion magazines, I will be reduced to a sniveling wreck of a human being.
I admire any woman who does stand-up, but frankly I’d rather pull out my own eyelids.
Frankly, most of my friends hold very different political beliefs. It’s just a funny thing in this country that supposedly you can’t sit down and have dinner and enjoy another person’s company if you don’t have the same beliefs. It’s ridiculous.
Art comes to you proposing frankly to give nothing but the highest quality to your moments as they pass.
Men and women do think differently, and frankly, we don’t understand each other. Not at all! But that’s what makes relationships so amazing.
Frankly, too many women treat their husbands as accessories instead of priorities.
To me, race is the single most divisive factor affecting American society. It’s an issue that we are afraid of, that we shy away from, and quite frankly, it amuses me that we are so sensitive to the issue.
I think Ben Bernanke and Tim Geithner shared the view that they shouldn’t be in the business of bailouts, but you know, you’re not in the business of bailouts until you frankly think you need to be.
The only reason to be in politics is public service. There’s no other reason. Frankly, if that’s the best job you can get in terms of money, that’s too bad, you know. Because frankly, it’s not well paid, everyone knows that. So for most people it’s a big sacrifice.
Writers do draw inspiration from their own lives, which, quite frankly, might be more interesting than fiction.
I believe in the people of our state and making sure the voices of the people of our state are heard in Washington. And that frankly stands in contrast to some of what we’ve seen out of Sen. Tillis.
Frankly, I got into the movies because I like the movies a lot.
I didn’t want to be president of the World Wildlife Fund. I was asked to do it. I’d much rather have stayed in the navy, frankly.
I think frankly when it comes to chaos you ain’t seen nothing yet.
To pretend that there is no such thing as the Muslim world is specious, self-deluding, and – frankly – plain silly.
When you’ve biked only on quiet cul-de-sacs and college campuses, the idea of riding in the city, right up there alongside the cars, seems, frankly, pretty absurd.
To be able to pretend to be something that I’m frankly not is very liberating and exciting.
I reckon I probably worked for Euripides a long time ago. I do think we have many Earth walks and it’s possible that he’s an old friend. Does that sound too stupid for words? Quite frankly I think I’ve been an actor in so many lifetimes.
The charge frequently leveled against poetry – that it is difficult, obscure, hermetic and whatnot – indicates not the state of poetry but, frankly, the rung of the evolutionary ladder on which society is stuck.
I’m not a good small talker. I’m not into small talk, frankly.
Renewables need to be developed in an environmentally responsible way. And, you know, I frankly have heard criticisms from even environmentalists saying that some wind farms impact gaming and fishing patterns, whether it’s offshore or onshore.
Quite frankly, teachers are the only profession that teach our children.
I’m not an education expert, and frankly I don’t want to make education decisions for our state. But I am experienced at successfully managing organizations, and putting people on a path where they can succeed.
A lot of times, actors give so much power to the producers and the producing companies because, quite frankly, they have it. But we don’t take the limited power that we have, which the power you initially have is to say ‘no.’ But ‘no’ in a positive way.
I think when Fox News goes to the Megyn Kellys, the Bret Baiers, and people who don’t have much experience who haven’t covered campaigns, the result is sometimes you have these inane questions that come out and, frankly, waste everybody’s time.
I think there frankly needs to be diverse spaces and voices as communicators. Women, certainly, but beyond that.
The only really expensive thing in our family budget, frankly, is private air travel.
I understand that people talk, and frankly, I can’t control that. There’s no point in getting upset over a thing that you can’t control. You just have to let it go.
Frankly, the only thing China has in easy abundance is people and dirty coal. Neither is the asset they’re made out to be.
I’m really not interested in other people’s opinions, because I think frankly most of those opinions are either misinformed and adding to this endless ball of hot air we have in our society where everyone thinks their opinion is valuable and sacred and what counts.
Old age has got to start creeping up on me one day soon, and frankly I’m very scared. I don’t want to be old. I’ve always felt so young. And I want to stay that way.
I’m done with President Obama, and frankly, so are my law enforcement friends.
I have been married twice, and those were not the happiest times of my life. Part of the problem, quite frankly, is that when you get married, the romance disappears and the children arrive and the love is transferred. It shouldn’t be that way, but too often it is transferred to the children.
If you’re differently-abled, if you’re a person of color, if you express your identity in a way that’s different from the norm, for whatever reason, there’s an implicit bias where people, frankly, sometimes take you less seriously.
I would be lying if I said I’m not flattered being voted as the ‘Time’s’ Most Desirable Man of 2012. Frankly, I have no idea how the desirability quotient is arrived at. If it is just drop dead good looks, then I have to thank God and my parents for it.
I don’t have dairy because I’m a singer and, quite frankly, I don’t want to mess around with my vocal chords and how those behave, and dairy is an allergen for me.
Frankly, it was only after ‘Clone Wars’ got cancelled that there seemed to be this universal love-fest from fans.
I have absolutely no problem being thought of as an action chick because, quite frankly, very few women have ever done that.
I have no interest in bailing out anybody, quite frankly, and I think banks have to suffer every dollar of loss if they make a bad loan.
I think being a woman and writing frankly about violence has gotten me some attention, and as someone who wants people to read my books, I can’t complain about that attention, but it does puzzle me that this is something reviewers focus on.
Frankly, the idea that exposed legs are some sort of sexual provocation is an argument one would expect to hear from a religious fundamentalist, not a feminist.
Frankly, there is not much demand from home and I don’t socialise much – no partying, get-togethers and very rare wedding appearances.
Frankly, I think it’s flattering to be compared to someone like Michael Bolton, who I think is a phenomenal singer with a spectacular range.
Frankly, if you can sell something at $80 a tonne that cost you $20 a tonne, you might want to sell as much as you can.
It’s still the same job, the same anxieties, but it did feel a lot different, that kind of budget, that schedule, and frankly, the slowness of it all, and also having a lot of other units working.
Sometimes you have to see the thing to know that it exists. Maybe there’s a queer person in a town, but they don’t feel comfortable or safe coming out, frankly, and the only representation they feel that they have or connection they have is on television or in a movie, and that’s really powerful.
Earlier, looking lighter or slimmer never mattered to me. Frankly, I didn’t care. I had more important things to do. But when I figured that it’s not that hard, and I have the time, passion and patience to take it up, I jumped onto the health-wagon. I started working out.
You need fighters like me to battle, because frankly The New York Times and the Washington Post are not going to fight the fights that I do.
Mighty cultures never – are almost never conquered. They crumble from within. And frankly, I think that a lot of Americans are acting like spoiled brats because everything isn’t working out perfectly every time.
Frankly, you cannot match the action in a Bond or a Bourne film. Forget budgets, it needs an expertise which I probably lacked.
We have to fight twice as hard, three times as hard – not only as conservatives, but frankly, as women – to have our voices heard.
You know, I think, people of all stripes in California, Republicans, Democrats, conservatives, liberals, frankly, as I have traveled the state, the number one issue is jobs. And they are looking for which candidate can get the economy back on track.
Laurel Canyon and Dawes have become linked in a way that I think is misguided, frankly, to tell a new fan what we sound like. But at one point maybe it wasn’t.
I don’t believe that we should limit waterboarding – or, quite frankly, any other alternative torture technique – if it means saving Americans’ lives.
Frankly speaking, ever since my debut, I have been offered cop roles. However, I never felt confident about pulling them off, probably due to my short physique or the absence of the required traits in me.
Watch me on CNN/SI. Check out clips from ‘Quite Frankly.’ I’ve always been Stephen A. Smith. I’ve been this way since the day I was born.
Evolutionary theory informs our understanding of some frankly inexcusable social behavior and renders it perfectly normal.
If you told me when I was a teen that I would end up being a teacher, I would have said you’re out of your mind, because quite frankly I hated school.
That’s, quite frankly, one of the reasons that President Trump was so popular on the campaign trail and that he won, quite frankly, is because he was kind of stating the obvious.
Go right straight down the road, to do what is best, and to do it frankly and without evasion.
Because we have more women in power now, frankly we are less likely to go to war. It’s not in our nature really.
One nuclear war is going to be the last nuclear – the last war, frankly, if it really gets out of hand. And I just don’t think we ought to be prepared to accept that sort of thing.
My college, Fitzwilliam, was pretty good but unfashionable and I lived in digs so I was not part of the cloistered ‘old college’ environment, which frankly was a bit intimidating. But I worked hard and settled in by exploring politics and girls.
The issue that Mr. Trump is talking about and which, really, frankly, I expect the media should be talking about is protecting the American homeland from national security risks and terrorists.
My equality rants have been out there so much that people must be getting sick of it, and frankly, so am I, but if a writer wants to do another story about it, then go for it, because the cause is a good one.
Directing is more what I would like to get into eventually. Frankly, I feel like it would be a waste if I didn’t because I’ve spent so much time on film sets, and I know how they work, and I love them, and I love leading them. I would like to do that as a director definitely.
Back in the ’90s, folks were not sure if they could trust the Web, and frankly, a lot of the services back then didn’t provide massive value.
One of the reasons the deficit got as big as it did, frankly, was because of the economic slowdown, the fall-off in deficits, the terrorist attacks. A significant chunk was taken out of the economy by what happened after the attacks of 9/11.
I frankly don’t watch TV shows that much.
People who worry about their hair all the time, frankly, are boring.
Frankly speaking, I don’t know much about rock music. But I enjoyed some when I was in college or high school. But I stopped listening after Elvis Presley!
Sporting competitions seem to be what we obsess over, frankly. So if we can put engineering, science, technology into a format of healthy, fun competition, we can attract all sorts of kids that might not see the kind of activity we do as accessible or rewarding.
Quite frankly, Minnesota was where my career kind of turned around, and it all had to do with Flip Saunders and his coaching prowess and his system.
Meanwhile, the Ice Storm was still in development, And that was something I really wanted to do, and frankly I don’t think I was ready to do a big production like this.
Frankly I’m a bit concerned when it comes to U.S.-China relations.
Frankly, Indian women inherit this collective cultural unconscious – this sense of guilt, shame, and dishonour. I think Indian girls need to become shameless and a little selfish, too.
What bothered me most about chick lit, frankly, was how the term was used to dismiss a huge chunk of the bookstore as silly, girlish prattle.
Fear is that thing that keeps you up there on that other plateau. Fear is that thing that just keeps you closed down, and quite frankly, alone.
Before I begin talking about the threats we face, the vulnerabilities that we have, and frankly the courage of the men and women in uniform that stand in harm’s way on behalf of a very grateful Nation, let me first honor the sacrifices of September 11.
Quite frankly, I think nothing could do more to immediately bolster national security then enabling us to produce more oil and gas here at home at a price consumers could afford.
It’s very, very hard to affect culture. And you can get surprised thinking you’re farther down the path of change than you really are because, frankly, most of us like the way things are.
You learn their honesty, you learn their competitiveness. You learn a lot about a person. It’s not that they have to sink the putt and there’s a great deal of talent involved – but you do learn about how competitive a person is on the golf course, and frankly, how honest.
We were going for simplicity with the Minions and, frankly, I think that’s a huge appeal of the characters. They’re essentially pills with goggles. A child can draw them quite easily.
I started my career in the private sector and then became U.S. attorney. I think I was a stronger U.S. attorney, and I frankly think I am a stronger Chair of the SEC, because of that experience.
Frankly, I find it very odd that, in a population that’s more than 50 per cent of women, that Hollywood isn’t producing more movies to cater to that audience. The demographic is being grossly underserved, in my opinion.
A good leader can engage in a debate frankly and thoroughly, knowing that at the end he and the other side must be closer, and thus emerge stronger. You don’t have that idea when you are arrogant, superficial, and uninformed.
I don’t ever really feel guilty about music, quite frankly. When you’re younger, you think that anything you don’t like, you have to hate. I’m so far beyond that perspective. Although, I will say I resent Bruno Mars for making me like him as much as I do. I wish that he wasn’t so likeable.
Now, academics are not always the easiest people to talk to, and the scholarly papers aren’t always the easiest papers to read, but frankly, psychology papers, especially papers and books on terrorism, are very easy to read, and journalists should be reading them.
I joined a very male-dominated profession back in 1986. I wanted to work with big multinational Fortune 500 companies, but you don’t come into the firm and automatically get those. So, quite frankly, a key to my success was that I found male mentors and male sponsors. I think some women are afraid to say that.
I recognize I have faults. I’m accountable for them, and I try to do what I can to correct them. I will say that it’s unfortunate that everything I do is scrutinized to the point that it is. Frankly, I don’t watch the news, I stay away from political conversations.
A lot happens at 50, the best thing being that you just don’t care anymore. At 40, you still care. At 30, you care way too much – and your twenties are quite frankly a nightmare. Bring on 60, I say: just imagine the joy of having grandchildren.
I think… as an actor, you never want to overspeak about something because, frankly, you want people to be excited about it but still have relatively low expectations so that people will feel better about it.
Writing’s all I know. Frankly, I’ve never been able to do anything else.
I live in rural New Hampshire, and we are, frankly, short on people who are black, gay, Jewish, and Hispanic. In fact, we’re short on people. My town has a population of 301.
I don’t think I’m a follower, frankly.
I’m always listening and watching; my ear is like a boom mike. And judging, frankly. Constantly judging.
Frankly, I don’t know how many companies there are, globally, which are truly global.
Frankly, I think that the news industry is critically important because it points out things and surfaces truths that can often be uncomfortable. I think that that’s working, and the spotlight has been pointed on things that we have a responsibility to do better, and I accept that.
Politicians are easy to attack, but frankly, we are all guilty of not meeting the needs of Africa’s young people properly.
Lita was, quite frankly, a trailblazer. She was the first woman to break down barriers by being different from other women in WWE. She didn’t just break them down: she flew over them, put them through tables, and downright destroyed them.
President Obama has raised so much money and will raise so much money through the Internet, more than anybody before him. And he frankly doesn’t, I believe, need any of my donations.
Frankly, it is very hard to remember things from the 1970s.
Going back as far as I do covering men’s college basketball, the objections to me being an analyst never came from inside the game. The players and coaches have always showed me the utmost respect and quite frankly my gender has never felt like an issue inside the game.
Frankly, kicking was just an extra thing that I did. I guess most people remember that I was also a quarterback. But how many people remember that I was a linebacker and a cornerback when I broke into pro ball with the Chicago Bears? I was around when you had to go both ways.
Frankly – and believe me, I say this without any pretense – when I see the road I’ve taken, I have to say that thanks to good luck, because without good luck one can do nothing, I’ve come out pretty well.
I first read ‘The Lord of the Rings’ as an adolescent. It’s a dense novel, a sprawling, complex monster of a book populated with a prolific number of characters caught up in a narrative structure that, frankly, does not lend itself to conventional storytelling.
I’m still very bullish on emerging markets. There’s an emerging middle class. They’re a growing group of customers. And frankly, they want Walmart. They want everyday low price. And that’s why we are continuing to grow in the emerging markets around the world, too.
Frankly, with HBO and Showtime and cable shows, the DVD box sets and all, you can have a product that doesn’t make you feel like as soon as it’s projected, it’s thrown away. It’s really a piece of art.
And for government and a bunch of men in government, frankly, to get between a woman and her provider is downright dangerous, especially when most of them can’t even spell endometriosis, much less tell you what it means.
Frankly speaking, if I care what people write, whether it is positive or negative, I believe, personally, I’m on the wrong path.
My retirement is both voluntary and involuntary. One reason, and this is voluntary, is the impact of television. All old movies are turning up on television, and frankly, making pictures doesn’t interest me anymore. Another reason is that the film industry is in a declining state.
Frankly, I think that’s something that black people in America have often done – finding ways under very, very difficult circumstances to be subversive, but also to push things forward. And I think that applies to music. I think it applies to dance. I think it applies to a number of things.
I do think comedy needs to be a living thing, but I think without a great script and fully realized characters, you cannot keep it living. Otherwise, it just becomes long and rambling, indulgent. So I think you need both, frankly.
More men are ruined by underestimating the value of money than by overestimating it. Let us, then, abandon the affectation of despising money, and frankly own its value.
I always feel that the best kind of producing – and frankly, it has to do with what I like to do – is you’re the big-picture person.
You know, I was at CBS News for 28 years. I may have run an unidentified source. Frankly, I don’t remember.
I realized I could be myself, and I wasn’t going to pay a consequence for that, and that people liked me for who I am and not necessarily for the generic, sanitized version of myself. And that was very liberating for me and, frankly, a huge confidence boost.
I was raised in the ’50s. I was taught by my father that how I looked was all that mattered, frankly.
I think that still, for the most part, even in 2010, the vast majority of museum shows and gallery shows and gallerists are pretty much dominated by men. So having a sense of what women are up to, for me, frankly, is very, very important.
I have done scenes where I’ve had to hold the hand of a girl and tell her that I love her. And frankly I did not enjoy that much.
I haven’t made a political statement in quite a long time because, frankly, they get repeated, changed.
There are a number of steps that we can take to reinvigorate and rebuild the economic and the physical infrastructure of our country and then to rebuild us, frankly, on a spiritual level.
I would prefer to get more sleep, quite frankly, because I think I would be more productive at everything.
Frankly, people buying a home to let should not be squeezing out families who can’t afford a home to buy.
One of the greatest things that Apple and Jobs were very good at doing was daring to do the very different thing. It’s what I did with my cookbook, frankly.
My instincts tell me that you will spiral into a very unhealthy place if you start pondering about how other people think about you and, quite frankly, I don’t want to go there.
We need to figure out a ‘harvest system’ to collect the produce that stores don’t put out for customers to buy because it’s not perfect looking. Frankly, the stuff left to rot in the storeroom is more beautiful to me than the perfect carrot. I’m a gnarly carrot kind of guy.
Most victims of ISIL are, in fact, Muslims. So it seems to me that to refer to ISIL as occupying any part of the Islamic theology is playing on a – a battlefield that they would like us to be on. I think that to call them – to call them some form of Islam gives the group more dignity than it deserves, frankly.
There are many people that frankly cannot get themselves to oppose Barack Obama. They make a lot of excuse for him.
Audience response to The Man From U.N.C.L.E. back in the ’60s – well, I was frankly surprised by the show’s success and the attendant publicity for David and myself.
Frankly, the idea that we need to be beautiful, if you really think about it, it’s odd. But if you can turn it inward and see yourself as beautiful, that’s what changes the world.
Like a lot of people, I have been a leader in some things, and I’ve been a follower in some things. I know how to work on a team. And most of life, frankly, to get things done you have to get done, you’ve got to work as a team.
In L.A., there’s a considerably different climate. It’s more misogynistic, frankly.
Frankly, one of the problems we have in the country is we’re not forming enough families. And that is hurting our economic work, and it’s hurting our economic projections, because the best place for a child is within a strong family unit.
I’m at the point, frankly, where I’d rather deal with a misogynist with a copy of Tucker Max’s book in his backpack over someone in sensitive emo-boy clothing, because both are misogynists, only the one with the backpack is more honest about just how scared of women he is.
I think, frankly, that I’m a better director than I was an actor.
I learned this lesson too late, frankly: Do not judge it while you’re doing it. Do not go back and fix things that are 20 pages ago when you’re already 20 pages past that.
I like questions that tee me up to make weird jokes, frankly.
Rather than dull our consciences to the unmitigated violence of abortion, the passage of time has only enabled us to see and, frankly, better understand the innate cruelty of abortion and its horrific legacy – victims – while making us more determined than ever to protect the weakest and the most vulnerable.
Whatever I gain from writing lyrics, I feel I lose a little bit for the musical aspect by having that lyrical burden on me. But when I’m liberated from worrying about the words, frankly, I feel I’m a better composer.
It hurts. Frankly, it hurts terribly. I have just lived one of the biggest loss of my career. It will be difficult to digest that moment. It is extremely hard to accept. I am disappointed.
I tried it, but frankly, I don’t know how to twerk.
Before ‘Bake Off,’ frankly, if you’d asked most people on the bus if they’d ever heard of me, it would probably only have been those aged over 55. But if they were 15, they wouldn’t have, and that’s the difference with ‘Bake Off’ – it’s loved across the generations.
I’m very lucky. I do voiceovers, ‘Family Guy,’ on and on, and quite frankly, I’m one of the luckiest actors in the world. I was able to create a character who became iconic.
Frankly, sometimes you have to go into the belly of the beast, as they say, and take on some of these individuals even if they’re entirely unprofessional, like Tucker Carlson.
I recurred on ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ for three years, and at the same time, I recurred for eight episodes on ‘Rescue Me’. And I’d recurred for nine episodes on ‘The Practice’. Frankly, the guest star is often the most compelling character.
Quite frankly, black folks have always been at the core of what it’s meant to make this nation human.
I think what history has done to Jewish people, frankly, cannot be made good by giving them a piece of land.
Frankly, no one had ever asked me before. My sexuality is something I’m completely comfortable with and open about.
A lot of people, quite frankly, think intense attachments to animals are weird and suspect, the domain of people who can’t quite handle attachments to humans.
I’ve never seen anything so abhorrent in my life as Harry Reid. He’s an equal opportunity basher. He goes after everybody, and I think it has been so, frankly, disgusting.
Geezers might say, ‘I wouldn’t wear make-up even if I was going on TV,’ but why not? You’ll look better. I can most frankly be called a geezer – I’ve earned the right to be called a geezer, a proper stand-up guy, that kind of thing – and if I can wear make-up, so can you.’
I grew up with the religion of ‘Star Wars,’ frankly. That’s when I realized there is something bigger out there… and it’s called The Force.
Quite frankly, I’m tired of taking insulin and pumping my stomach every three days and pricking my finger and drawing blood out of it every day – it’s a tedious, meticulous, annoying disease that never goes away. And I want to get rid of it like everybody else does.
I could not finance a movie on my own. Frankly, I could not even afford to take a year off. I, like most people in America, need to keep making money.
Interestingly enough, the storyboard… that I did for ‘Psycho’ went precisely as I laid it up, and there was no change on that. And frankly, I myself at that point didn’t even really understand the impact that some of these things would have.
The National Rifle Association has an extensive enemies list, and I am, frankly, insulted that I am not on it.
All too often, the word ‘religion’ has become identified with those promoting a frankly anti-scientific view of nature and of our place in the natural world.
Frankly, I never thought that I would represent my country one day.
I grew up with my cousins, who were as close as brothers, and frankly, I didn’t like what girls were expected to do. I liked horseback riding, playing football, going to rodeos. I wanted to be in jeans all the time, and I couldn’t figure out why I was supposed to conform to a certain standard, so I didn’t.
I find it unnecessary, useless and frankly a bit unnecessary to get into all sorts of debates over President Obama’s religion or the authenticity of his birth. I know for some people that it is an obsession. It is not with me.
In many… cases, of course, the Arab Spring has brought about instability rather than greater stability. And rather than bringing about government that is more representative and more responsive to the people, you’re seeing, frankly, the opposite, or you’re seeing all-out war.
Frankly, I’m not religious, but I believe in the cause of humanity – doing good work.
Inflation was driven by higher labor costs, not higher goods costs. Frankly, I’d love to see a little bit of that. Because I’d love to pay people more. I’d love to see rising wages for everybody.
Frankly, I would never accept an award from Vladimir Putin because then you kind of give some credence and credibility to this butcher, this KGB agent, which is what he is.
I think the world is filled with so much hype and PR bull. Frankly, it all comes out in the end. Good or bad, I’d rather just let our accomplishments really speak for themselves.
Quite frankly, the Urban brand organization became too siloed, with too little communication across functional areas. The great creativity that has been the hallmark of our success became stifled.
When I went out and started making solo records, I was determined not to, I guess, put my name on an album that sounded like Styx. I wanted to carve my own niche, so quite frankly I went in a different direction.
Frankly, I had thought that at the time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of.
I never thought acting would be a realistic job for me. Because, quite frankly, I didn’t see people who looked like me doing it. I quickly realized, that’s all the more reason to try.
The American people need to know that money is being used effectively because frankly, the nation can’t afford careless spending, no matter how well-intentioned.
