The novelistic attribute of my work is very much like t

Lav Diaz

Robert Kubica
I’ve been looking at some video clips on YouTube of President Obama, then candidate Obama, going through Iowa making promises. I think the gap between his promises and his performance is the largest I’ve seen, well, since the Kardashian wedding and the promise of ’til death do we part.

U.S. adversaries exploit power gaps. It’s easier for Russia to invade Ukraine with irregular forces out of uniform, the so-called ‘little green men,’ than to send a conventional army that would challenge NATO.

Karen Hughes
There’s a gap somehow between empathy and activism. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. spoke of ‘soul force’ – something that emanates from a deep truth inside of us and empowers us to act. Once you identify your inner genius, you will be able to take action, whether it’s writing a check or digging a well.
Sue Monk Kidd

Alvin Lee
There are lots of theories that the simpler a comic character is drawn the more relatable they become. People can imprint themselves onto the gaps in the picture. The skill of cartooning is often working out how much can be stripped away.

It was a shock to my system leaving ‘The West Wing’ and going to ‘Psych.’ I remember being like, ‘What are you doing?’ when James Roday first started improvising. Steve and the writing staff write it that way. They leave gaps.
Dule Hill

Widad Akrawi
When there is a gap between what’s on the outside and what’s on the inside, that’s when people retreat into their foxholes because it is an unsafe situation. You don’t know what you are dealing with. What you see is not what you are going to get. And that is when people start withdrawing.
Parker J. Palmer
Sadly, because of the enormous gap between rich and poor, some mothers can afford helpers, but many can’t. Those who can would be kinder to refrain from criticizing other women.

Tina Fey
If you’re paying attention to human interactions – to the gap between who we are and who we think we are, or the gap between what happened and what we remember – you’re going to end up thinking (obliquely or otherwise) about what it means to act ethically, and I think that’s all to the good.

Liam Gillick
In spite of the great advances which have been made in our knowledge, some fundamental gaps remain. Matter, life and mind still remain utter disparate phenomena, yet the concepts of all three arise in experience; and in the human all three meet and intermingle.
Jan Smuts
America is still the land of opportunity for most, but it is not a land of opportunity for all. If we are to remain an exceptional nation, we must close this gap in opportunity.

Europe’s financial system is fragmented, although the gap in funding costs for banks within the euro area is no longer as wide as it was two years ago. But in lending the differences are still very large, and in some countries the credit flow is disrupted.
Mario Draghi
You build the bonds through the community and police force, build bonds of understanding, and then when people feel comfortable in their communities, that gap between the police and the communities they serve narrows.

J. Cole
It’s amazing what a healing effect horses can have on kids, particularly troubled kids, that might bridge the gap that a well-intended human just can’t do.

Joe Swanberg
Sometimes it looks as if, the better off they [nations] become, the bigger do they conceive the gap between what is actually their lot and what would be desirable, while in the poor countries large masses of people seem to be satisfied by merely surviving.
Gunnar Myrdal
I’m ashamed and embarrassed to say that I’ve read very little of David Foster Wallace’s work. It’s a huge gap in my education, one of many.
Ben Fountain
The argument goes that the pay gap only exists because of women’s ‘choices’ of work type, hours, and child related career breaks, effectively making it a myth. But research shows that while those are factors, they don’t account for the whole gap, suggesting that discrimination certainly plays a role as well.
Laura Bates
The key role of entrepreneurs, like the most crucial role of scientists, is not to fill in the gaps in an existing market or theory, but to generate entirely new markets or theories. . .They stand before a canvas as empty as any painter’s; a page as blank as any poet’s.
George Gilder
To close the empathetic gap, you really want to get the person emotionally identifying [with your subject and characters], and then when you do that, then you want sneak in a lesson about history and about politics and whatever else you might think about.
Fred D’Aguiar
Have Tottenham closed the gap on Arsenal?
Last time I checked they were still 4 miles and 11 titles away

Mike Tyson
As each brigade emerged from the woods, from 50 to 100 guns opened upon it, tearing great gaps in its ranks; but the heroes pressed on and were shot down by reserves at the guns. It was not war, it was murder.
Daniel Harvey Hill
Even if not one migrant turns out to vote, this was a historic debt that Mexico owed its compatriots abroad. This represents a new political space for our migrants, an opportunity to bridge the gap between two societies, those living in Mexico and those living abroad.
Ruben Aguilar
Congress has become so dysfunctional that more and more of a burden is placed on the agencies to fill in the gaps. And the gaps get bigger and bigger because they’re not constantly refreshed and tweaked.
Barack Obama
The great enemy of clear language is insincerity. When there is a gap between one’s real and one’s declared aims, one turns, as it were, instinctively to long words and exhausted idioms, like a cuttlefish squirting out ink.
George Orwell
America’s government is not even aware of the gap between its commitments and action, because almost nobody in authority understands the actions that would be needed to meet the commitments.
Jeffrey Sachs
The world comes to us in fragments and shards. Whatever stories we shape from our days, we’re always dealing with gaps, blank-spots, and blackouts – and in handling all these breakages, we are, at all times, so incredibly intimate with sharp edges, the unending knife-like moments of failure and joy in our lives.
Alex Lemon
There are not as many women who support the national defense budget now as men. I really think there is a gender gap in the support for the large expenditures that are necessary to modernize the force.
Theodore Stevens

David Rockefeller
Next to the highest peak of happiness, there’s the deepest gap of pain.
Octavian Paler
What really turns me on about technology is not just the ability to get more songs on MP3 players. The revolution – this revolution – is much bigger than that. I hope, I believe. What turns me on about the digital age, what excites me personally, is that you have closed the gap between dreaming and doing.
He [Mencken] was an autodidact, with all the misplaced confidence and all the astonishing gaps that characterize that breed. Not many of us would venture to write a book about democracy without ever having read de Tocqueville, nor embark on a translation of Nietzsche with only a sketchy knowledge of German.
John Derbyshire
Painting relates to both art and life. Neither can be made – I try to act in the gap.

Bill Gates
The power of storytelling is exactly this: to bridge the gaps where everything else has crumbled.

Some liberals think that describing any role that education gaps play in creating income inequality is some sort of sellout – that, in essence, you’re telling the middle class, ‘Tough luck; you should have stayed in college.’
Timothy Noah
Even in a savage tribe, the achievements of adults are far beyond what the immature members would be capable of if left to themselves. With the growth of civilization, the gap between the original capacities of the immature and the standards and customs of the elders increases.
John Dewey
I’ve always liked doubles. When you scald the ball on a line to the gap, I think that’s about as close to a perfect swing as you can get.
Lance Berkman
Creativity is the process of sensing problems or gaps in information, then identifying the difficulties and seeking solutions through trial and error or through forming hypotheses.
Ellis Paul Torrance
I think the gap between Israelis and Palestinians is too deep to be bridged in our generation. Politically, we are in favor of a regional solution. A part of Judea and Samaria (the West Bank) should be annexed by Israel, and the other parts should be incorporated in a confederation with Jordan.
Ayelet Shaked
Social networking technology didn’t really exist until 2004-2005. I had the idea to use this technology to bridge this gap between a general interest in addressing social issues and the practical action.
Ben Rattray
I’m driven by the gaps, the things that are missing, the areas where marginalized people exist – and where the least resources are available for them.
Tarana Burke
Things like science and technology still leave some gaps, so it’s not as if everybody was sitting around doing nothing, but the bureaucracy and the whole structure of our culture is basically built out of men trying to be legitimate and making things up so they look important.
Peter Buffett
The Indians are finding the gaps like a pin in a haystack.
Navjot Singh Sidhu

Roger Williams
Well, I always leave massive gaps between albums.
Lisa Stansfield
If one draws things in a manner which provides only the barest clue to their meaning, the viewer is forced to fill in the gaps by using his own imagination. He is compelled to participate in the creative act, which I consider very important.
Antoni Tapies
An entrepreneur cannot be trained. A man becomes and entrepreneur by seizing an opportunity and filling the gap. No special education is required for such a display of keen judgment, foresight, and energy.
Ludwig von Mises
This very heart which is mine will forever remain indefinable to me. Between the certainty I have of my existence and the content I try to give to that assurance, the gap will never be filled. Forever I shall be a stranger to myself.
Albert Camus
The Patriot Act closed dangerous gaps in America’s law enforcement and intelligence capabilities, gaps that terrorists exploited when they attacked us.
George W. Bush
We find a place for what we lose. Although we know that after such a loss the acute stage of mourning will subside, we also know that we shall remain inconsolable and will never find a substitute. No matter what may fill the gap, even if it be filled completely, it nevertheless remains something else.
Sigmund Freud
The gap between enthusiasm and indifference is filled with failures. The great man is he that does not lose his child’s heart.
Unhappiness lies in that gap between our talents and our expectations.
Sebastian Horsley
As we grow in the knowledge of God’s holiness, even though we are growing in the practice of holiness, it seems the gap between our knowledge and our practice always gets wider. This is the Holy Spirit’s way of drawing us to more and more holiness.
Jerry Bridges
I think in many ways what my films are about is that search for my grandpa’s dentures: for that humanizing narrative that bridges the gap between “us” and “them” to arrive at a “we.”
Brian Lindstrom
In my case, the long gaps between my books have got quite a lot to do with lack of confidence. A lot of the time when I’m not writing I start thinking I can’t do it.
Wendy Cope
Hell is out of fashion –institutional hells at any rate. The populated infernos of the 20th century are more private affairs, the gaps between the bars are the sutures of one’s own skull. . .
J. G. Ballard
I’ve never really considered myself a home run hitter. Mostly I’m a guy who hits into the gaps for a lot of doubles.
Mike Lowell
Creativity in all forms of life, from arts to business to domestic situations, depends on our ability to recognize and explore gaps
Itay Talgam
Shakespeare’s plays often turn on the idea of fate, as much drama does. What makes them so tragic is the gap between what his characters might like to accomplish and what fate provides them.
Nate Silver
Male makeup is men’s titles, status and paying for dates. Makeup is what both sexes use to bridge the gap between the power they have and the power they’d like to have. Both male and female makeup are compensations for feelings of powerlessness.
Warren Farrell
If a student has access to a great school, Khan Academy can supercharge it. It should help a well-resourced school, and if you don’t have that, then Khan Academy can have even a bigger impact. But I don’t see it as replacing the actual schools… we want to empower teachers and fill in the gaps.
Sal Khan
Mastery is in constantly wanting to close the gap between where you are and where you want to be.
Sarah Lewis
Young girls are obsessed with having a thigh gap. I blame the impossible body standards set by Spongebob.
Stephen Colbert

Yorgos Lanthimos
By this measure (on the gap between Fischer & his contemporaries), I consider him the greatest world champion
Garry Kasparov
Beyond highways and roads, we need more money for mass transit, intercity passenger rail and freight rail. We have a long way to go to bridge the funding gaps.
Bill Lipinski
Part of the reason why some of the relationships I’ve had in my past worked for so long is because when you’re making movies, a huge gap of time can pass when you don’t even see the person.
Julia Roberts
Then she offers him a slim but sincere smile, and he reluctantly returns it. It doesn’t bridge the gap between them, but at least it marks the spot where the bridge might be built.
Neal Shusterman
Society always needs a level playing field. In order to do that, you have to have opportunity, and providing that opportunity begins with ‘how do we bridge that gap,’ that so-called Digital Divide? How can we get internet into every home possible?
Jackie Joyner-Kersee
Seeing what is wrong and how it could be made right propels us into action, but in that action we often leave other people behind and don’t give ourselves enough time to be present, or to stop and reflect. Leaders have to get comfortable with pausing in that uncomfortable gap.
Jennifer Lawrence
During the two centuries since the publication of ‘The Wealth of Nations,’ the main activity of economists, it seems to me, has been to fill the gaps in Adam Smith’s system, to correct his errors and to make his analysis vastly more exact.
Ronald Coase
To be creative means to connect. It’s to abolish the gap between the body, the mind and the soul, between science and art, between fiction and nonfiction.
Nawal El Saadawi
When I’m assembling a book I concentrate as though I were writing a poem. A truly imagined arrangement will indicate gaps and generate new poems. I re-read the new poems in my folder in the hope that this might happen.
Michael Longley
In the space between yes and no, there’s a lifetime. It’s the difference between the path you walk and the one you leave behind; it’s the gap between who you thought you could be and who you really are; its the legroom for the lies you’ll tell yourself in the future.
Jodi Picoult
People are falling all over themselves to send you free shoes and free cufflinks and colonic irrigations for two. Nobody ever offers you a free acceptance speech. There just seems to be a gap in the market. I would love to be able to pull out a speech by Dolce & Gabbana.
Hugh Laurie
Why can’t you understand? The stars fall down now and then. The gaps have to be filled.
Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

Margaret Spellings
I used to write in bed, starting when I woke up. I believe that creative work comes from our subconscious mind, so I try to keep the gap between sleep and writing as minimal as possible.
Marian Keyes
The edge of the conflict swayed to and fro, with wild whirlpools and eddies. At times I saw around me more of the enemy than of my own men; gaps opening, swallowing, closing again with sharp convulsive energy. All around, a strange, mingled roar.
Joshua Chamberlain
I am a hands-on mother, so I take long gaps between films.
Farah Khan
This society cannot go forward, the way we have been going forward, where the gap between the rich and the poor keeps growing. It’s not politically viable; it’s not morally right; it’s just not going to happen.
Michael Bloomberg
The actual gap between Labor, Likud and the new central party is microscopic.
Amos Oz
Given the fact of evolution, one would expect the fossils to document a gradual steady change from ancestral forms to the descendants. But this is not what the paleontologist finds. Instead, he or she finds gaps in just about every phyletic series.
Ernst Mayr
I’m supposed to be taking time off. But I’m still writing and I have this Gap advert lined up.
Joss Stone
Hillary Clinton should get a bounce out of her convention, I mean a bounce in the polls. I think it’s probably conceded that Donald Trump got about a three-point bounce out of his conventions. He’s closed the gap that much.
Mark Shields
Looking towards the future, one of the most important issues the national community must face is the widening gap between the liberated, modern, independent women and our traditional men who are being left behind.
Kamla Persad-Bissessar
It’s in everyone’s best interest to help close the gender gap in the sciences.
Sarah Brightman
We speak about understanding each other, having those conversations nationwide – culturally, historically – and yet there’s a lot of gaps. So I want to assist with closing the gap of knowing about and hearing about our Latino communities in terms of literature, in terms of writing.
Juan Felipe Herrera
One knows that frontal and/or profile photography is torn to pieces… Inversely, what remains of the photograph must be seen as a fragment coming to fill a gap in the drawing.
Jean-Francois Lyotard
The earliest and most primitive known members of every order already have the basic ordinal characters, and in no case is an approximately continuous sequence from one order to another known. In most cases the break is so sharp and the gap so large that the origin of the order is speculative and much disputed.
George Gaylord Simpson
Casemiro has to cover the gaps left by everyone. That’s balance for me; to make sure the game doesn’t go mad.
The secret to #success lies in the gap between dream and reality.
Bret Michaels
A library is an ever-growing entity; it multiples seemingly unaided, it reproduces itself by purchase, theft, borrowings, gifts, by suggesting gaps through association, by demanding completion of sorts.
Alberto Manguel
We dont need to solve the problem of the rich-poor gap. We need to solve the problem of common prosperity.
Zong Qinghou
I always felt that what is scary is actually hearing someone tell you what they think they see. That sense of invisibility makes things a lot scarier, since your imagination tends to fill in the gaps.
James Wan
I like gaps; all my stories have gaps. It seems this is the way people’s lives present themselves.
Alice Munro
Part of a soldier’s duty is to fill gaps…one must be willing to be nothing, as something.

Adam Shankman
I know that gaps can be closed. And they can be closed substantially, more than I think we believe.
Barack Obama
There’s a big gap between public opinion polls and the vote in Washington, in Congress. The majority consciousness has changed, and often that has made very clear, practical changes in our daily lives, but the centers of power are still not occupied, for the most part, by this new consciousness.
Gloria Steinem
The leader can never close the gap between himself and the group. If he does, he is no longer what he must be. He must walk a tightrope between the consent he must win and the control he must exert.
Vince Lombardi
Presence is like a gap in the flow of history, where all of [a] sudden it is not past and not future.
Peter Zumthor
It is remarkable how many misconceptions there are here about life in the developing world and I think that that knowledge gap has done a lot to contribute to the imbalance quite frankly.
Emma Thompson
But by shining these lights in different places, they really have uncovered things that companies in their own interest are trying to clean up. We’re not going to get rid of the realities of global competition. But these companies, like Nike or Gap, have global brands that they want to protect.
Pietra Rivoli
In place of science, the Eskimo has only magic to bridge the gap between what he can understand and what is not known. Without magic, his life would be one long panic.
Peter Farb
There’s so many relationships in Hollywood – and in the history of the world – where people have large age gaps.
Camila Morrone
The gap between the young people and the rest of society is that…young people don’t have hope.
Sister Souljah
What I always liked about Socrates was his insistence on questioning things for the sake of reaching some sort of clarity – even if it is only clarity about the gaps in our knowledge.
Samantha Harvey
I’m almost thirty and my day job is folding shirts at the Gap. Have you seen my room? I’m not messy. I’m rebelling against folding.
Tiffanie DeBartolo
Though easy to define, it is important to understand the significance of philanthropy. I believe it is really a state of mind: where one feels empowered and equipped to fill the huge gaps in the existing system.
Shiv Nadar
Those opportunity gaps begin early, often at birth. And they compound over time, becoming harder and harder to bridge, making too many young men and women feel like, no matter how hard they try, they may never achieve their dreams.
Barack Obama
We didn’t have a generation gap, we had a generation Grand Canyon.
Mary Brave Bird
On the local, state and federal level, government is working alongside veteran’s organizations and other stakeholders to provide services such as medical assistance, employment resources, and housing support to veterans and their dependents and survivors. But there are still gaps in services that must be rectified.
Letitia James
The right to a quality education is, I believe, the perfect path to bridge the gap between different cultures and to reconcile various civilizations. Without such a right, the values of liberty, justice and equality will have no meaning. Ignorance is by far the biggest danger and threat to humankind.
Mozah bint Nasser Al Missned
Western science is approaching a paradigm shift of unprecedented proportions, one that will change our concepts of reality and of human nature, bridge the gap between ancient wisdom and modern science, and reconcile the differences between Eastern spirituality and Western pragmatism.
Stanislav Grof
But by this time I was acutely conscious of the gap between law and justice. I knew that the letter of the law was not as important as who held the power in any real-life situation.
Howard Zinn
I do think we know that a teacher who knows what he or she is doing, knows their subject matter, and knows how to impart knowledge to kids is a critical piece of closing the achievement gap.
Margaret Spellings
Great talkers are trying to fill the gap between themselves and others, but only widen it.
Mason Cooley
Wherever we’ve gone around the world, we’ve found quite significant gaps: the holy texts, no matter which one you turn to, has ambiguity in it around slavery. That, we knew, was being used as justification by slavers all over the world.
Andrew Forrest
The concept of downsizing so that others might upgrade is biblical, beautiful…and nearly unheard of. We either close the gap or don’t take the words of the Bible literally.
Francis Chan
Slip into the gap, have the desire, detach from the outcome, and let the universe take care of the details.
Deepak Chopra
Real music will make you more and more refined. It will become more and more silent. In fact, real music will help you to listen to silence, where all notes disappear, where only gaps remain. One note comes, disappears, and another has not come, and there is a gap. In that gap meditation flows in you.
There’s a huge gap in the market for modern online marketing and business education for women that’s effective, fun, and gorgeous to engage with. I knew I could fill that gap.
Marie Forleo
We have again a strange gap. We have the big scientific discoveries around the second, third century BC. Then we have an invention of the so-called Arab system, the positional system of counting with zero dated to the eighth or ninth century.
Garry Kasparov
The Occupy Wall Street protests at last suggest that America’s wealth gap is once again becoming an organizing political principle in the country.
Jon Meacham
I’m thrilled to be joining Gap Inc., a company that understands the importance of integrating technology and retail in ways that improve the lives of its customers.
Padmasree Warrior
That’s what the Affordable Care Act is all about. It’s about filling the gaps in employer-based care so that when we lose a job, or go back to school, or start that new business, we’ll still have coverage.
Barack Obama
The most extraordinary thing about trying to piece together the missing links in the evolutionary story is that when you do find a missing link and put it in the story, you suddenly need all these other missing links to connect to the new discovery. The gaps and questions actually increase – it’s extraordinary.
David Attenborough
Nothing is more destructive than the gap between people’s perceptions of their own day-to-day economic well-being and what politicians and statisticians are telling them about the economy
Nicolas Sarkozy
In most cases, it’s slight and often unintentional gaps in integrity that hold leaders, their employees, and their companies back. Despite their potential, these leaders harm their employees and themselves.
Travis Bradberry
Take that one thing you don’t like about yourself and more often than not that’s the one thing that makes you more special. Whether it’s that gap in your teeth, or that mole you never liked, or your skin color.
Shay Mitchell
It’s not what you see that is art. Art is the gap.
Marcel Duchamp
If we win all those fights, and now let’s say the income gap, and the wealth gap, and the education gap have for the most part been closed – let’s say hypothetically, , first of all, America as a whole would be a lot richer.
Barack Obama
There is no gap as wide as the one between mediocrity and genius.
Rutvik Oza
We face a dilemma because although everybody is better off than they’ve ever been at any time in our history, we’ve also got the biggest gap between the rich and the poor that we’ve ever had, and we’ve potentially got a planet which is going to go bust any day.
Stuart Rose
Anyone in the arts has had an experience of seeing someone who they related to doing something and thinking, ‘I could do that.’ If you have one generation where you force its hand a bit, then the next one fills in the gaps, because it’s seen an example of what can be done.
Stewart Lee
I used to think that when I set out that doing the research was enough! But then the gaps would emerge that could only be filled by the imagination. And imagination only comes when you privilege the subconscious, when you make delay and procrastination work for you.
Hilary Mantel
Present-moment awareness creates a gap not only in the stream of mind but also in the past-future continuum. Nothing truly new and creative can come into this world except through that gap, that clear space of infinite possibility.
Eckhart Tolle
The biggest gap in your life is between what you know and what you do.
Bob Proctor
Most of the female-directed films, if they got distribution, would have fewer dollars to support the film and play in fewer theaters than the men. Because the female-directed films go to smaller companies. So the gap starts widening.
Catherine Hardwicke
There is a considerable polarization taking place here, increasing the gap between rich and poor. It’s most dramatic in Third World countries, of course, but in the rich countries it’s also very noticeable.
Noam Chomsky
I wish to fill in the gaps which have so far always remained unanswered in the souls of men as burning questions, and which never leave any serious thinker in peace, if he honestly seeks the Truth.
We have a problem with women in leadership across the board. This leadership gap – this problem of not enough women in leadership – is running really deep and it’s in every industry. My answer is we have to understand the stereotype assumptions that hold women back.
Sheryl Sandberg
A new home by a gap in the Meng wall; Of the old trees, a few gnarled willows are left. Those who come in the future, who will they be, Grieving in vain for what others had before?
Wang Wei
Faith is the only thing that will ever close the gap between our theology and our reality.
Beth Moore
Connecticut’s public schools are among the best in the nation, but there’s more that we can do to close achievement gaps so that we can provide more of our youngest students with the tools they need to achieve careers in leading fields when they become adults.
Ned Lamont
If you want to get at African American poverty, the income gap, wealth gap, achievement gap, that the most important thing is to make sure that the society as a whole does right by people who are poor, are working class, are aspiring to a better life for their kids.
Barack Obama
One of the pervasive risks that we face in the information age, as I wrote in the introduction, is that even if the amount of knowledge in the world is increasing, the gap between what we know and what we think we know may be widening.
Nate Silver
The gap between bat and pad is so much that I would have driven a car through it… !!
Navjot Singh Sidhu
And were in the middle of a perfect storm. These days, government social services are being bad-mouthed and defunded. The non-profit world is looking more and more like the for-profit world. The growing gap between rich and poor makes most of us very anxious about where we stand.
Arlie Russell Hochschild
Most of the time, I’m in khakis and a white T-shirt. I’m a total Gap girl. Super casual, hair in a pony tail and no makeup.
Jennifer Love Hewitt
Either way, everything will be fine. But if you have an opinion, please feel free to offer it to me through the gap in the door of a public restroom. Everyone else does.
Tina Fey
The unhealthy gap between what we preach in America and what we often practice creates a moral dry rot that eats at the very foundation of our democratic ideals and values.
Whitney M. Young
The gap between current conditions and your future vision should be your focus
Tony Jeary
There isn’t a lot of poverty literature in the young-adult world. And I don’t know why that is, but I think certainly I felt a gap.
Sherman Alexie
They had nothing to say to each other. A five-year age gap between siblings is like a garden that needs constant attention. Even three months apart allows the weeds to grow up between you.
Zadie Smith
Schooling after the second grade plays only a minor role in creating or reducing gaps.
James Heckman
With ‘Believe’ bringing really big success for me outside of the U.K. for the first time, it meant I have been touring around the world and that led to a gap from the studio. I really feel like the gap has done me the world of good. Throughout that time I was able to collect songs that I really loved.
Katherine Jenkins
I distanced myself, relatively, from my parents for a year or so in my late twenties. It was necessary for me to feel my autonomy. Other than that brief gap, we have always been a very close family.
Jennifer Ehle
An absence of meaning opens a gap in time.
Michel de Certeau
That silent gap between your thoughts is your window to the cosmic mind.
Deepak Chopra
Memory is like patches of sunlight in an overcast valley, shifting with the movement of the clouds. Now and then the light will fall on a particular point in time, illuminating it for a moment before the wind seals up the gap, and the world is in shadows again.
Tan Twan Eng
The world of fantasy fills the gaps in people’s knowledge.
Fred Vargas
This helpful book on the role of the arts fills a significant gap in the growing literature on holistic faith-based programs.
Ronald J. Sider
I mean, one thing I know about change is we are not going to close the achievement gap without educators.
Margaret Spellings
I’m kind of a builder of institutions. I think I’ve got some ability to look at what’s out here, look at a playing field, and identify gaps and niches.
David Brock
Natural gas is a very flexible source of energy that can help us bridge the gap between our current high-carbon economy and our zero-carbon future.
Katharine Hayhoe
When the others grew tired and went home and there was no one else to play with I used to play my own Test matches on the porch of our house, using a broom handle or a stick as the bat and a marble as the ball. I would arrange the pot plants to represent fielders and try to find the gaps as I played my shots.
Brian Lara
…if one thing frightens people, it is that so much happens, on earth and out in space, the reasons for which seem somehow to escape them, and they fill in the gap by putting it down to the gods.
I have been studying women’s political behavior since the early 1970s and first identified the gender gap in 1980 with the help of legendary pollster Louis Harris.
Eleanor Smeal
There are going to be times when you learn more about the world you’re entering and feel defeated when you see the gap between the ideal and the reality… But that’s something we’ll all face. The people that face those obstacles and overcome them are people whose dreams come true.
Tsugumi Ohba
If I was a Marxist I’d call it the crisis of capitalism. Even though I’m not a Marxist, that seems like a not unreasonable term for the widening gap between the rich and poor that we’re seeing.
Charles Stross
Because there is that sort of feeling that people don’t know what to do with gaps in their lives. It’s a scary notion, but actually, if you can stand in space just for a little while, a new door will open, or you’ll be able to see in the dark after a while. You’ll adjust.
Jane Campion
I think that the main issue with inequality is not the gap between the rich and the poor. It is the gap between the earnings of top business leaders and the salaries of academics and journalists.
Arnold Kling
While closing our innovation gaps won’t solve all our problems, we have some very real opportunities to improve the quality of care that’s delivered to millions of Americans.
Kathleen Sebelius
The succession of thoughts appears in time, but the gap between two of them is outside time. The gap itself is normally unobserved. The chance of enlightenment is missed.
Paul Brunton
If you only have work clothes – the black trouser and ribbed turtleneck you got four years ago at the Gap – you’re not participating in your own style personality.
Stacy London
I think that’s the nature of representation. No matter what it will disappoint, it will fail in some way.But that’s also part of the magic of art. If every picture met my expectation in exactly the right way, there’d be no mystery; there’d be no gap between what’s in my head and the picture I make.
Gregory Crewdson
Recruit for the future not just for the gap.
John Gregory
To discover your real questions, simply take a time-out. Stop looking ahead of yourself at where you’re going or backward at where you’ve been. When you do stop, there’s a sense of going nowhere. There’s a sense of gap, which is a tremendous relief. You can simply breathe and be who you are.
Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche
While we should certainly be investing in our own STEM education, we should take advantage of the thousands of international students who come here to study and are ready to fill these gaps immediately upon graduation.
Brad Feld
If I wrote what I really think, I would be so sad all the time. We create to fill a gap – not just to avoid the idea of dying, it’s to fill some particular gap in ourselves.
Joss Whedon
As a kid it’s adorable to have a gap in your teeth. But then, because of the shifting in my mouth, I started whistling through it, and as a 32-year-old woman, whistling while you speak in sort of annoying.
Mindy Kaling
New ideas are difficult just because they are new. Repetition has somehow plastered over the gaps and inconsistencies in the old ones, and the new cannot penetrate.
Joan Robinson
I think most serious photographers understand that there’s this large gap between the world and how the world looks through a photograph.
Stephen Shore
My mind doesn’t work, my memories don’t work like a computer file where I can just retrieve them and, boy, there it is. My mind is selective in terms of memories. When I try to think back to college or high school, there are gaps. I try to fill them in. But I can’t tell you it’s always the truth.
John Kennedy
In the gap between who we wish one day to be
and who we are at present,
must come pain, anxiety, envy and humiliation.
Alain de Botton
The gap between those who worship different gods is not so wide as the gap between those who worship and those who don’t.
C. S. Lewis
Closing the gap for women entrepreneurs should be a priority for the federal government – and yet the Small Business Administration has failed in their promise to women business owners.
Ruben Hinojosa
There’s tonnes of room for more people in the tech market, and there are lots of content gaps that have still not yet been tapped into.
Jon Oringer
My mind no longer has romantic abysses, but has become shallow, with many little gaps and cracks.
Mason Cooley
I stick to playing Brahms, but I love listening to Led Zeppelin, and I’ve also been a big fan of Earth Wind and Fire since the Seventies and of The Gap Band since the Eighties.
Condoleezza Rice
Every time you create a gap in the stream of mind, the light of your consciousness grows stronger
Eckhart Tolle
Skill is how you close the gap between what you can see in your mind’s eye and what you can produce; the more skill you have, the more sophisticated and accomplished your ideas can be. With absolute skill comes absolute confidence.
Twyla Tharp
China has great potentials; the people are hard-working and focused. But they have to close the gap as far as the pace of the game is concerned. Football in the future will get faster and faster.
Berti Vogts
We need to address significant funding gaps when it comes to implementing the SDGs.
Miroslav Lajcak
I am constantly hustling and finding new things. You try to manage so you don’t look back and see huge gaps of time that you missed with your family.
James Marsden
You don’t have to have a thigh gap to be beautiful. It is possible to love your body the way it is.
Demi Lovato
In practice, downsizing is too often about cutting your work force while keeping your business the same, and doing so not by investments in productivity-enhancing technology, but by making people pull 80-hour weeks and bringing in temps to fill the gap.
James Surowiecki
Your problem is to bridge the gap which exists between where you are now and the goal you intend to reach.
Earl Nightingale
Well, for me, really, I think it was I wanted to try and clear up some of the misperceptions that were out there and fill in some of the historical gaps.
Monica Lewinsky
The more technological a society is, the greater the security gap is.
Bruce Schneier
The literary world is so full of pretension, and there’s such an enormous gap between how seriously poets take themselves and how widely they’re ignored by everybody else.
Billy Collins
In education, technology can be a life-changer, a game changer, for kids who are both in school and out of school. Technology can bring textbooks to life. The Internet can connect students to their peers in other parts of the world. It can bridge the quality gaps.
Queen Rania of Jordan
Could fulfillment ever be felt as deeply as loss? Romantically she decided that love must surely reside in the gap between desire and fulfillment, in the lack, not the contentment. Love was the ache, the anticipation, the retreat, everything around it but the emotion itself.
Kiran Desai
When you pretend to be an authority on everything, it forces your subordinates to defer to your opinion – which may not be the most informed in the room. If you have humility concerning the gaps in your experience or ability, it allows others to shine.
Courtney A. Kemp
The best craftsmanship always leaves holes and gaps… so that something that is not in the poem can creep, crawl, flash or thunder in.
Dylan Thomas
So…I’m larking through the Baby Gap, looking at tiny capri pants and sweaters that cost more than … I don’t know,more than they should. And I get totally sucked in by this ridiculous, tiny fur coat. The kind of coat a baby might need to go to the ballet. In Moscow. In 1918. To match her tiny pearls.
Rainbow Rowell
It’s not hard to assume that voters do not have deeply considered views on each and every policy issue before them but instead, perhaps, have one or two strongly held views and then allow their favored political leaders to fill in the gaps on the rest of the issues.
Kristen Soltis Anderson
USDA Rural Development is responsible for helping rural counties and small communities provide public services and foster economic growth. Often these investments help fill gaps that are hard to overcome with a rural tax base.
Cindy Hyde-Smith
What turns me on about the digital age, what excited me personally, is that you have closed the gap between dreaming and doing. You see, it used to be that if you wanted to make a record of a song, you needed a studio and a producer. Now, you need a laptop.
There is a gap between the knowledge, skills, or state of mind of the learner and what he is to learn, which it seems to me any teaching activity must seek to bridge if it is to deserve that label. Teaching activities must therefore take place at a level where the pupil can take on what it is intended he should learn.
Paul Q. Hirst
The more I learn about stuff the more conscious I become of grave gaps in my knowledge.
John Darnielle
I grew up with music hall and revue and was used to filling in the little gaps here and there to get bigger audience reaction.
Ron Moody
The trick is to find happiness in the brief gaps between disasters.
Christopher Paolini
I get extensions, but when they start to get spotty, I go buy wispy lashes and cut them up. I put them where the gaps are when I don’t have time to get a fill.
I did not want to be depressed by the gap existing between my weakness and my ambition.
Ella Maillart
Of course smartphones are brilliant inventions, but the nefarious thing about Twitter and other social media is that it starts to fill all the gaps in your day. I quickly become an addict.
Nick Offerman
My first modeling job was Gap, and my first time in front of the camera was for a Soda Pop Girls commercial – it’s one of those Bratz dolls, Barbie dollsone of those.
Hailee Steinfeld
It’s a particular skill, I think, doing backing vocals. You’re blending the vocals between the gaps, between the music.
Lisa Hannigan
Nothing can fill the gap when we are away from those we love, and it would be wrong to try to find anything…..It is nonsense to say that God fills the gap; he does not fill it, but keeps it empty so that our communion with another may be kept alive, even at the cost of pain.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer
The imagination is such as powerful tool: suggestion is all you need. People fill in gaps.
Fiona Barton
The lamp you lighted in the olden time Will show you my heart’s-blood beating through the rhyme: A poet’s journal, writ in fire and tears… Then slow deliverance, with the gaps of years.
Bayard Taylor
Studies demonstrate that as gaps are being closed between men and women – in access to education, in health, even in economic participation – the most difficult gap to close is in political participation. Somehow that sharing of raw power, political power, remains very illusive.
Melanne Verveer
And, even if Affirmative Action survives, it is also clear that these policies are not themselves sufficient to close the educational and employment gaps that plague U.S. minorities.
Harry J. Holzer
Rhyme and meter force gaps in meaning so the muse can enter.
Mason Cooley
The destiny of the human race is to widen the gap separating it from the lower races of animals. Any code of morality which retains its permanence and authority after the conditions of existence which gave rise to it have changed, works against this upward progress of man.
Friedrich Nietzsche
You can’t afford for there to be gaps in your pool of knowledge when it comes to a character; otherwise, what ends up onscreen is generalized and unspecific.
David Oyelowo
Art is a way of freezing time, or extending time. … It’s another way to bridge the gaps between us.
Sarah Ruhl
Build gaps in your life. Pauses. Proper pauses.
Thom Yorke
The word itself creates an empty sensation. Try saying it now. “Why?” Notice how your tongue touches nothing when you form the word with your mouth. Feel the gap, the space inside your mouth, that it creates. The air. It is a place that needs filling. It is missing an answer.
Arlene J. Chai
We have very stable mechanisms of conflict resolution in terms of labor relations, we have a very good transportation infrastructure, we provide our children with an excellent education and the gap between rich and poor in Germany is relatively narrow. On the other hand, we have trouble accepting change.
Angela Merkel
The mind revels in conjecture. Where information is lacking, it will gladly fill in the gaps.
James Geary
Wherever a man separates from the multitude, and goes his own way in this mood, there indeed is a fork in the road, though ordinary travelers may see only a gap in the paling. His solitary path across lots will turn out the higher way of the two.
Henry David Thoreau
I like the fact that I have good old-fashioned British teeth with a big gap.
Georgia May Jagger
The gap between what is popular and what is righteous is widening.
James E. Faust
Do work you love, in which you can excel: The smaller the gap between who you are in your personal life and who you are at work, the happier you will be.
Lauren Mackler
Diverse forms of memory can have a variety of gaps. Thus it is possible for me to represent a past situation to myself and be unable to remember my inner behavior in this situation. As I transfer myself back into this situation, a surrogate for the missing memory comes into focus.
Edith Stein
There’s one tiny little gap in the universe left, just about to close. And it takes a lot of power to send this projection. I’m in orbit around a supernova. I’m burning up a sun just to say good bye.
Russell T Davies
The 2010 global gender gap report by the World Economic Forum shows that countries with better gender equality have faster-growing, more competitive economies.
Michelle Bachelet
I’m paid about 20 times more than the average Ryanair employee and I think the gap should be wider. I probably work 50 times harder. I think I’m the most underpaid and underappreciated airline boss in Europe.
Michael O’Leary
When there is no such thing as religious culture and moral education, serious social problems such as drug addiction and racism fill the gap.
Recep Tayyip Erdogan
I think there was an absolute, deep gap between consensual relations between adults, which people may like or dislike, and people who physically impose themselves on children or misuse their authority to impose on children.
Barney Frank
Sometimes the silences, the gaps, tell us more than
anything else.
Peter Ackroyd
The measure of your quality as a public person, as a citizen, is the gap between what you do and what you say.
Ramsey Clark
There’s a tremendous gap between public opinion and public policy.
Noam Chomsky
Study after study confirms that even when you control for variables like profession, education, hours worked, age, marital status, and children, men still are compensated substantially more – even in professions, like nursing, dominated by women. No wonder there’s a gender gap.
Dee Dee Myers
Bridget Jones’ Baby, at heart is about the gap between how you expect life to turn out and how it actually does.
Helen Fielding
Alcohol doesn’t console, it doesn’t fill up anyone’s psychological gaps, all it replaces is the lack of God.
Marguerite Duras
Technology advances at exponential rates, and human institutions and societies do not. They adapt at much slower rates. Those gaps get wider and wider.
Mitch Kapor
Science knows it doesn’t know everything; otherwise, it’d stop. But just because science doesn’t know everything doesn’t mean you can fill in the gaps with whatever fairy tale most appeals to you.
Dara O Briain
In our current understanding of science, we can’t find the physical gap in which to slip free will – the uncaused causer – because there seems to be no part of the machinery that does not follow in a causal relationship from the other parts.
David Eagleman
Take advantage of each small success. In this way you close the gap between what you want from life and what it is giving you.
Deepak Chopra
You tend to think that there is a big gap between F1 and everything else. F1 is where all the fantastic drivers are, so you just don’t know how good you are until you get there.
Jean Alesi
Each moss,
Each shell, each drawling insect, holds a rank
Important in the plan of Him who fram’d
This scale of beings; holds a rack which, lost
Would break the chain, and leave behind a gap
Which Nature’s self would rue.
Benjamin Stillingfleet
I try to keep performing as much as possible – I just like to. I used to take huge gaps off between gigs, now I just like to do stand-up gigs as much as I can.
Eddie Izzard
But after all I find in my work an echo of what struck me. I see that nature has told me something, has spoken to me, and that I have put it down in shorthand. In my shorthand there may be words that cannot be deciphered. There may be mistakes or gap
Vincent Van Gogh
All of us experience a gap between our minds and the reality of time—that’s why we suffer.
Dainin Katagiri
He went through a non-existant gap.
Clive Tyldesley
I used to live in a gap jumper, tracksuit bottoms and a fake flower in my hair. Shocking.
Jessie J
It does seem like between the groundbreaking writing of Edmund White’s generation and the work of younger gay writers in their twenties and thirties there is a kind of gap.
Garth Greenwell
We feel in one world, we think and name in another. Between the two we can set up a system of references, but we cannot fill in the gap.
Marcel Proust
Men have their intellectual ancestry, and the likeness of some one of them is forever unexpectedly flashing out in the features of a descendant, it may be after a gap of several centuries. In the parliament of the present every man represents a constituency of the past.
James Russell Lowell
Every year the State will be the dog that chases its own tail… engaging in a futile attempt to close a perpetual budget gap.
Richard Codey
The criminal-justice system is, obviously, the sole source of racial tension in this country [USA] or the key institution to resolving the opportunity gap. It is a part of the broader set of challenges that we face in creating a more perfect union.
Barack Obama
There are gaps in the fossil graveyard, places where there should be intermediate forms, but where there is nothing whatsoever instead. No paleontologist..denies that this is so. It is simply a fact, Darwin’s theory and the fossil record are in conflict.
David Berlinski
I had a real yearning to make use of the opportunities I had at school. When I heard about the gap year of teaching English at a Tibetan monastery, I knew I had to do something about it really quickly, otherwise it was going to get allocated.
Benedict Cumberbatch
Today secular philosophers call that kind of divine invocation God of the gaps-which comes in handy, because there has never been a shortage of gaps in people’s knowledge.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
Feature-length film comedy is harder to pull off than the episodic sitcom – it doesn’t have the same factory machinery up and running, teams of writers putting familiar characters through permutations – but that doesn’t explain the widening quality gap that makes movie humor look like a genetic defective.
James Wolcott
Changes occur because there’s a gap between what is and what should be.
Craig McCaw
Eye-popping tales of growing income inequality are hardly new. By now, nearly every American must be painfully aware of the widening pay gap between top executives and shop floor laborers; between ‘Master of the Universe’ financiers and pretty much everyone else.
Steven Rattner
We have a positive vision of the future founded on the belief that the gap between the promise and reality of America can one day be finally closed. We believe that.
Barbara Jordan
Making the effort to improve as a human being is what Coach Lombardi was all about. He was able to see the gap between where we were and what we could become-both as football players and as people. And he felt it was his God-given responsibility to close that gap.
Jerry Kramer
Humans make errors. We make errors of fact and errors of judgment. We have blind spots in our field of vision and gaps in our stream of attention. Sometimes we can’t even answer the simplest questions.
Gary Wolf
Our greatest heart-treasure is a knowledge that there is in creation an individual to whom our existence is necessary – some one who is part of our life as we are part of theirs, some one in whose life we feel assured our death would leave a gap for a day or two.
Miles Franklin
Patience lives in the gap between our experience of an event and our response to that experience.
Allan Lokos
I’ve got a twin sister who’s an artist and growing up I was always “the loud one.” She’s not actually quiet at all, but I would rather fill a gap with chatter and she would just let a gap be. So there was no inclination to actually perform.
Sue Tompkins
Public-Private Partnership in financing, service delivery and provision of workspaces and training of trainers must be promoted to meet the demand and supply gap in the field of skill development.
M. M. Pallam Raju
Illusion is an anodyne, bred by the gap between wish and reality.
Herman Wouk
Nonfiction is both easier and harder to write than fiction. It’s easier because the facts are already laid out before you, and there is already a narrative arc. What makes it harder is that you are not free to use your imagination and creativity to fill in any missing gaps within the story.
Amy Bloom
Then there are the people who know me from the lectures. What I am really trying to do, what I need to accomplish at this time, is to fill in the gaps.
Suzanne Somers
The more the schemata are differentiated, the smaller the gap between the new and the familiar becomes, so that novelty, instead of constituting an annoyance avoided by the subject, becomes a problem and invites searching.
Jean Piaget
I don’t think I have reached that stage where I can evaluate my career. I still have a long way to go. All I wish for now is to make sensible moves and to choose wisely. It doesn’t matter if there are gaps between films, as long as the ones I do give me the satisfaction of having done something good.
Nivin Pauly
A serious problem in America is the gap between academe and the mass media, which is our culture. Professors of humanities, with all their leftist fantasies, have little direct knowledge of American life and no impact whatever on public policy.
Camille Paglia
I am deeply committed to the cause of Indigenous Australians, and not just because of the Apology, but the big challenges which lie ahead in closing the gap.
Kevin Rudd
Beings who are born not only unaware of, but quite indifferent to, the aims and habits of the social group have to be rendered cognizant of them and actively interested. Education, and education alone, spans the gap.
John Dewey
The gap between vision and current reality is also a source of energy. If there were no gap, there would be no need for any action to move towards the vision. We call this gap creative tension.
Peter Senge
To be clear, the gap between the have gots and the have nots is widening. In this most multicultural, multiracial, multiethnic America ever, that concerns me.
Tavis Smiley
Disappointment is the gap that exists between expectation and reality.
John C. Maxwell
The gap between the rich and the poor is wider in the United States than it is in any of the other industrialized nations.
Gerald Celente
They are very good reasons why voice acting in games can be so terrible. Writers are in a great position to be able to bridge this gap.
Rhianna Pratchett
Only God Forgives was very much a generation gap in a way. It was all the youth of the world that embraced it. I make films for young people. That’s what I will continue to do.
Nicolas Winding Refn
I turned to leave and paused before the gap in the ruined wall. “One last thing, Your Majesty. I’d like a name I can put into my report, something shorter than typing out ‘The Leader of the Southern Shapechanger Faction.’ What should I call you?” “Lord.” I rolled my eyes. He shrugged. “It’s short.
Ilona Andrews
Just like any other company, Samsung can fail, and if that happens, how will the South Korean economy overcome the shock? If we don’t decrease our over-reliance on the chaebols and prepare to let smaller, dynamic start-ups fill the gaps in their place, it won’t.
Kim Young-ha
He wanted to care, he wanted to care so badly, but there was this gap between what he felt and what he wanted to feel, a space where something important had been carved out.
V. E. Schwab
The issue of world environment has a special kind of urgency… The issue is one of rich peoples and poor peoples, of the growing gap between the two, and of the rich fouling their own nests.
Gilbert F. White
Love is what enables us to bridge the gap of disappointment when others don’t live up to the expectations we have of them.
Abigail Van Buren
It’s not my fault that there is this gap between rich and poor, it is the fault of governments. I want a different world. One where I don’t wake up thinking I’m so lucky to be able to feed my daughter.
Emma Thompson
I went to graduate school as a lieutenant colonel after I had been in the army for 12 or 13 years. I learned so much from all the great management theorists. It gave me a greater understanding of my army experience and showed me the gaps in my knowledge.
Colin Powell
Actually when we stopped New Order I was busier than ever. The only gaps have been while we’ve been writing.
Peter Hook
Behind their eyes the hope was sickening and in many, dead. They lived from event to event with a subtle terror of the gap between, filling up their lives with distractions to avoid the emptiness where curiosity should have been.
Clive Barker
Each country is different. Keep an open mind, and you will able to find where the niche entry level lies – the areas where there are gaps. You have to keep an ear to the ground, and you can find a business opportunity.
Binod Chaudhary
A father must lead his children; but first he must learn to follow. He must laugh with them but remember the ache of childhood tears. He must hold the past with one hand and reach to the future with the other so there can be no generation gap in family love.
June Masters Bacher
One of the biggest gaps in sports is the difference between the winning and losing teams of the Super Bowl. They don’t invite the losing team to the White House. They don’t have parades for them. They don’t throw confetti on them.
John Madden
I think you get into trouble as an author and a journalist when, rather than owning the gaps, you try to elide them.
David Grann
I believe that people, more often than not, act with the best possible intentions. And when they don’t, that’s funny to me. That’s why comedy ends up seeming cynical, because you’re talking about the gap between what people say and what they do.
Stephen Colbert
I think the gap between rich and poor is an extremely dangerous phenomenon and needs the immediate attention of the state.
Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
So many schools have cut the music classes out of their curriculum. We’re trying to fill that gap by teaching the teachers how to educate the kids about their musical heritage.
Margaret Whiting
We often assume that all teachers within a discipline address the same curriculum. This isn’t always the case. We frequently find gaps between goals and what is actually taught, and these gaps can have a lasting impact on a child’s learning.
Heidi Hayes Jacobs
The ‘democracy gap’ in our politics and elections spells a deep sense of powerlessness by people who drop out, do not vote, or listlessly vote for the ‘least worst’ every four years and then wonder why after every cycle the ‘least worst’ gets worse.
Ralph Nader
Practicing discipline involves continually working to find space in our patterns, to find the gaps in the images we hold about ourselves. It also means finding the gaps in our ideas about others, releasing images that we hold about a manager, a coworker, a friend, or a partner.
Tsoknyi Rinpoche
Music absolutely played a massive role in bridging many gaps in the racial divides I would encounter.
Daryl Davis
Today, the gap between productivity and compensation for the typical worker is larger than at any time since World War II.
David Rolf
Storytelling bridges the generational gaps in ideology.
Elise M. Boulding
You’ve got to look for a gap, where competitors in a market have grown lazy and lost contact with the readers or the viewers.
Rupert Murdoch
I don’t totally believe that all of the politicians see a problem with the gap between the scores of black children and other groups. I believe that many politicians think this has been the way it has always been, so what’s the problem?
Barry Williams
I don’t believe in perfection, but those acrimony-free gaps during our family holidays can be downright blissful.
Ron Howard
Archives exist because there’s something that can’t necessarily be articulated. Something is said in the gaps between all the information.
Taryn Simon
Casemiro has to cover the gaps left by the full-backs.
My ties and ballasts leave me – I travel – I sail – My elbows rest in the sea-gaps. I skirt the sierras. My palms cover continents – I am afoot with my vision.
Walt Whitman
I am absolutely behind equal rights but I am also bridging the gap between cultural mentality and society’s mindset as there are huge amount of gaps that need to be addressed and progress needs to be made. Yeah I am a feminist, it is not a difficult thing to explain.
Photography is such an important instrument in the education of our feelings and perception because of its duality. Photography represents the world we know, and suggests a world beyond what we can see. Creativity is the gap between perception and knowledge.
Emmet Gowin
Gaps can be very emotional. I mean, that’s in my drumming. When I drum, you know, I don’t need to drum all over the track. I play with the singer and I can back off.
Ringo Starr
Peace means loyalty to self. … And loyalty to one’s self means never a gap between thought, speech, act.
Ruth Beebe Hill
The attempt to close the gap between what is known and what IS, is the temptation behind the apple in Genesis.
Barry Lopez
Gap clothing allows you to look like you’re from nowhere and anywhere.
Douglas Coupland
Dying is not romantic, and death is not a game which will soon be over… Death is not anything… death is not… It’s the absence of presence, nothing more… the endless time of never coming back… a gap you can’t see, and when the wind blows through it, it makes not sound.
Tom Stoppard
Kindness is a steeling feeling that has a power of filling the gaps in relationships by stealing hearts.
As your reputation gets bigger, the gaps and chances to go through them get smaller.
William Aitken
We are living in an historic moment. We are each called to take part in a great transformation. Our survival as a species is threatened by global warming, economic meltdown, and an ever-increasing gap between rich and poor. Yet these threats offer an opportunity to awaken as an interconnected and beloved community.
Desmond Tutu
Books don’t exist unless you read them. And it’s a two way process – you write the book as you read it and you fill in the gaps. You discover it and you put the marks together and without you doing it they’re just marks.
Samuel West
The gap in education in this country, the unfairness of the schools, is one of the great unfairness in this society.
Gaston Caperton
I just realized that we’re facing here is an empathy gap. And this was just another way to generate conversation about something that nobody wanted to look at.
Teju Cole
You have to suspend thinking in narratives. The moment you are conscious of yourself the gap opens up. And in this gap, stories are generated.
Aleksandar Hemon
Country radio went through a time where they were trying to pigeonhole everybody, and trying to make the gap really narrow, and I think that they’ve opened that up a little bit.
Tim McGraw
This book fills a much-needed gap.
Moses Hadas
Ann Taylor – great name, great real estate, shitty business. Gap -great name, great real estate, declining business. J.Crew – Hellooo? Great name, better fashion image than the Gap.
Millard Drexler
When we revel in hindsight, we have a tendency to embellish. We weave romantic and poetic fibres into the gaps in our memory.
John Whaite
If I was to stop making music tomorrow doesn’t mean suddenly there is this gap. You don’t get elected. The people decide where you are. Whether I’m here or not, if they want you to be at the top then the people will move me out the way.
The historian does simply not come in to replenish the gaps of memory. He constantly challenges even those memories that have survived intact.
Yosef Hayim Yerushalmi
The thing I learned was the lack of coordination in research projects in the world and therefore you will have gaps in what we could possibly learn from these research projects.
Leanne Pooley
Whether you face reality head on and make a life change, or deny your responsibility, you’ve made a choice. The way I see it you choose either a life of abundant strength and energy, or you’re living in the gap, far beneath the quality of life you could be enjoying.
Shawn Phillips
For women the wage gap sets up an infuriating Catch-22 situation. They do the housework because they earn less, and they earn lessbecause they do the housework.
Sylvia Ann Hewlett
I must bridge the gap between adolescent glitter and mature glow.
Sylvia Plath
There used to be a huge hole in my life that I wrote many albums about. I didn’t realise it was a wife-and-daughter-shaped hole. They’ve plugged that gap. Everything I do, I do for them now. When daddy goes to work, it’s daddy going to work, not Rob going to work. I feel like there’s a purpose to everything.
Robbie Williams
One advantage of exhibiting a hierarchy of systems in this way is that it gives us some idea of the present gaps in both theoretical and empirical knowledge. Adequate theoretical models extend up to about the fourth level, and not much beyond. Empirical knowledge is deficient at practically all levels.
Kenneth E. Boulding
The longing of my heart is a fairy portrait of myself: I want to be pretty; I want to eliminate facts and fill up the gap with charms.
Mark Twain
So long as there’s a gap in your life, fill it with love.
Amado Nervo
Perhaps the best definition of progress would be the continuing efforts of men and women to narrow the gap between the convenience of the powers that be and the unwritten charter.
Nadine Gordimer
We want to decipher skies and paintings, go behind these starry backgrounds or these painted canvases and, like kids trying to find a gap in a fence, try to look through the cracks in the world.
Georges Bataille
One function of the income gap is that the people at the top of the heap have a hard time even seeing those at the bottom. They practically need a telescope. The pharaohs of ancient Egypt probably didn’t was a lot of time thinking about the people who build their pyramids, either.
Molly Ivins
In order that a “self” may exist there must be some continuity of mental experiences and, particularly, continuity bridging gaps of unconsciousness. For example, the continuity of our “self” is resumed after sleep, anaesthesia, and the temporary amnesias of concussion and convulsions.
John Eccles
My experience in decision-making has shown that patterns are tough to break. In the military, we study an opponent, looking for gaps, flaws, or weaknesses that can be exploited. Successful leaders at all levels in all disciplines conduct this kind of analysis.
Keith Kellogg
My view is that science only has something to say about a very particular notion of God, which goes by the name of ‘god of the gaps’.
Brian Greene
It is easier to bridge the oceans that lie between continents than it is to bridge the gap between individuals or the peoples.
Mahatma Gandhi
Don’t raise the bar and narrow the gap, but narrow the gap to raise the bar.
Andy Hargreaves
The fiction writer in me likes gaps in stories because I can jump into that gap and try to suggest something.
Marlon James
I don’t absolve the Democrats of their lack of commitment to deal with poverty. But nowadays we’re witnessing the widening of the gap. There’s something wrong when a handful of people have more than they’ll ever need while millions of people have less than they always need.
Joseph Lowery
Right now, if there’s a gender gap problem, it’s not Ronald Reagan with women; it’s with Walter Mondale with men.
Patrick Caddell
The struggle comes when we sense a gap between the clock and the compass – when what we do doesn’t contribute to what is most important in our lives.
Stephen Covey
I’m telling you, the disconnect is big, and the gap of understanding between the people in Washington, in news media, the New York/Boston/Washington corridor and the rest of the country, that gap is widening.
Rush Limbaugh
I’m not trying to give any definite answer. What I’m trying to prove is that we have enough gaps, enough discrepancies, enough simple falsifications to conclude that probably this history was an invention of a later time.
Garry Kasparov
Remember that the biggest gap in the world is between ‘I should’ and ‘I did.’
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
Some split between the inner world and outer world is common to all behaviour, and the need to bridge the gap is the source of creative behaviour.
Anthony Storr
Prior to 1940, the affluent and the middle class began to converge, but after 1979, the economic gap between the middle class and affluent widened significantly.
William Julius Wilson
I think we have to keep working enormously hard to see that every single Indigenous child – every Australian child – has true equality of opportunity. Weve got to work harder at it. I think, you know, the heartland issue for us is the gap; the gap in life expectancy in this country.
Quentin Bryce
The world’s urban poor and the illiterate are going to be increasingly disadvantaged and are in danger of being left behind. The web has added a new dimension to the gap between the first world and the developing world. We have to start talking about a human right to connect.
Tim Berners-Lee
If you grow up somewhere where the pace of life is very slow you enjoy the gaps between the pulses. I read a lot and, boy, did I practise the piano.
Alexander Armstrong
For me there is no gap between my painting and my so-called ‘decorative’ work. I never considered the ‘minor arts’ to be artistically frustrating; on the contrary, it was an extension of my art.
Sonia Delaunay
In Guatemala, the gap between rich and poor must be eliminated, or we will continue to be the example of conflict in America.
Rigoberta Menchu
If you ask me about my success story, the secret is I know when to pull myself back. I don’t overexpose myself; I give proper gaps whenever I can. I do not over spend myself, I keep myself busy in lot of activities. I really work hard; I work harder than others, by focussing on my fitness level and studying music.
Sonu Nigam
Maybe the only thing that hints at a sense of Time is rhythm; not the recurrent beats of the rhythm but the gap between two such beats, the gray gap between black beats: the Tender Interval.
Vladimir Nabokov
Of course, this is one of the really important things about art, that you can make more than you can understand at the moment the thing is being made. But the gap between what we recognize inside ourselves – our feelings- and our ability to trust ourselves and to trust exposing ourselves to those ideas, can be great.
Emmet Gowin
It is our fall from a simplicity and fullness of life directly experienced, from the sensuous moment of knowing, which leaves a gap that the symbolic can never bridge.
John Zerzan
When I listen to the public debates about climate change, I am impressed by the enormous gaps in our knowledge, the sparseness of our observations and the superficiality of our theories.
Freeman Dyson
The silence between us stretched out, but it wasn’t awkward. Sometimes there are people you can be quiet with, and you never feel the need to fill the gap with meaningless chit-chat. I’d only become that close to a couple people in my hometown, and I’d always thought it took years. Lucas and I were already there.
Claudia Gray
The statesman’s duty is to bridge the gap between his nation’s experience and his vision.
Henry A. Kissinger
To approach the badlands is to find a gap in the known and expected world.
Robert Kroetsch
The gap is not between knowing it and living it, it’s between knowing it and living it consistently. You know, we’ve all had moments when we got it right. Most of us have moments when we get it right every day. The trouble is getting it right when a curve-ball comes at us.
Marianne Williamson
When people go through tragic circumstances, it’s not that there is no love there, but it’s so hard to deal with and sometimes the gap starts to happen.
Maggie Q
The first eight years of schooling was with all white people. So that helped me to understand how white people think. I think that transition is what helped me bridge the gap, because that’s what my success has really been about: bridging the gap between the black community and the white community.
Will Smith
The hardest thing is to go to sleep at night, when there are so many urgent things needing to be done. A huge gap exists between what we know is possible with today’s machines and what we have so far been able to finish.
Donald Knuth
I know more Australian people than I know New Zealand persons. I feel like there’s a real gap in my education.
Cameron Esposito
You see that gap is exactly how they can marginalize and exclude people from giving the voters more voices and choices.
Ralph Nader
I just like to talk to people. I don’t know how to bridge the gap between getting to know someone and then schmoozing and sort of working contacts and business connections.
Michael Rady
I think Chris Rock at the Oscars was a great example. I thought that was intellectually hilarious. The Gap starts a war with Banana Republic… That to me was funny.
Christopher Meloni
I realized that there are many people who are very good students, but they think of themselves as bad students. At the end of the day, what they are really missing is way to understand where their gaps are and a way to address those gaps.
Sal Khan
The discrepancy between what was expected and what has been observed has grown over the years, and we’re straining harder and harder to fill the gap.
Jeremiah P. Ostriker
When one past thought has ceased and a future thought has not yet risen,
in that gap, in between, isn’t there a consciousness of the present moment;
fresh, virgin, unaltered by even a hair’s breadth of a concept, a luminous, naked awareness?
Well, that’s what naturally peaceful awareness is.
Sogyal Rinpoche
The absence of any consideration of lesbian consciousness or the consciousness of third world women leaves a serious gap within this conference. . . .
Audre Lorde
So the books for the Englishman, as he listened intently or not, had gaps of plot like sections of a road washed out by storms, missing incidents as if locusts had consumed a section of tapestry, as if plaster loosened by the bombing had fallen away from a mural at night.
Michael Ondaatje
We don’t need fossils – the case for evolution is watertight without them; so it is paradoxical to use gaps in the fossil record as though they were evidence against evolution
Richard Dawkins
The idea that God resides in the unknown is what philosophers call the God of the gaps. And we have this thing called science, which marches on and makes discoveries in those gaps, ultimately closing gaps.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
People who don’t like musicals like, ‘why are they singing? Why aren’t they just talking? If you make the lyric feel really conversational, it’s much easier for them to bridge that gap.
Lin-Manuel Miranda
Charity is a fine thing if it’s meeting a gap where needs must be met and there are no other resources. But in the long term we need to support people into helping themselves.
Annie Lennox
There is always a gap between intention and action.
Paulo Coelho
If the schooling system does not rapidly close the gap between what it does, and what it should do in response to the demands of the 21st century, it will simply become irrelevant.
David Hood
Prayer is an expression of who we are…We are a living incompleteness. We are a gap, an emptiness that calls for fulfillment.
Thomas Merton
We were the people who were not in the papers. We lived in the blank white spaces at the edges of print. It gave us more freedom. We lived in the gaps between the stories.
Margaret Atwood
But with the steady disintegration of the family in modern society over the last century, the role of the school in bridging the gap has become vital!
Stephen Covey
I am always excited for gaps of time where I can actually hang out with my friends.
Girl Talk
The real gap is between doing nothing and doing something.
Clay Shirky
The economy is better than the one President [Barack] Obama inherited, and unemployment is lower, but the unemployment rate gap remains large.
Julianne Malveaux
Rarely does a candidate think ahead and take the time to understand what the hiring company’s priorities are, and then carefully presents himself as a ‘solution’ to the company’s existing gaps/needs.
Azran Osman Rani
We still have gaps that are rooted in gender inequality. Certainly we have discrimination against the LGBT community.
Hillary Clinton
It is overwhelmingly women who will plug the gaps in care provision, sacrificing paid employment to look after family members.
Luciana Berger
She watched the gap between ship and shore grow to a huge gulf. Perhaps this was a little like dying, the departed no longer visible to the others, yet both still existed, only in different worlds.
Susan Wiggs
Doesn’t it get on my nerves when people say science doesn’t know everything. Science knows it doesn’t know everything otherwise it would stop. Just becuase science doesn’t know everything doesn’t mean you can fill in the gaps with whatever fairy-tale appeals to you.
Dara O Briain
At 20, I realized that I could not possibly adjust to a feminine role as conceived by my father and asked him permission to engage in a professional career. In eight months I filled my gaps in Latin, Greek and mathematics, graduated from high school, and entered medical school in Turin.
Rita Levi-Montalcini
Equality legislation, and audits on gender pay gaps, ethnicity and disability, – within companies and public authorities – all aim to stamp out the informal transfer of power through social networks, in favour of appointment through genuine merit.
Dawn Foster
The human condition can almost be summed up in the observation that, whereas all experiences are of the past, all decisions are about the future. It is the great task of human knowledge to bridge this gap and to find those patterns in the past which can be projected into the future as realistic images.
Kenneth E. Boulding
Whitney Houston came in. Someone dared me to do “the Gap act” on her. You know, the Gap act. So I went up to her like I didn’t know who she was, and I said, ‘Hi, I just wanted to let you know about our sale items and make sure to check out our new colors’. She looked at me like I was crazy.
Amy Adams
I have had so many gaps that I have not been consistently working, and the thing is that you get better with more work.
Dimple Kapadia
It is a lie that people who love each other must know everything about each other. Love must occasionally allow for a gap.
Gabrielle Zevin
Competing loves are detected in the gap between saying and doing.
James MacDonald
Creationists eagerly seek a gap in present-day knowledge or understanding. If an apparent gap is found, it is assumed that God, by default, must fill it.
Richard Dawkins
I came to accept during my freshman year that many of the gaps in my knowledge and understanding were simply limits of class and cultural background, not lack of aptitude or application as I’d feared.
Sonia Sotomayor
As consumers, we can pressure corporations both to monitor and improve workplace conditions overseas – when inspections reveal violations, these companies should address the gaps immediately.
Alissa Quart
The gap between what one knows and what one thinks one knows may be higher in the ranks of the elite. The result is supposedly-clever government interventions, introduced with excessive confidence, leading to disastrous results.
Arnold Kling
The whole story is about change. We are very lucky that the earth’s history is recorded in fossilized remains. And we can see the changes. Unfortunately, there will always be gaps in our knowledge, but there is no doubt that we and everything living today has evolved.
Richard Leakey
The reality is you don’t get stand offs who are expert kickers as well as top drawer runners. The trick is to find a balance but Phil is putting a lot of guys into gaps.
Frank Hadden
I’m fighting to make childcare more affordable for working parents so they can continue working and advancing their careers, closing wage gaps that for too long have held women back from the fair economic opportunities they need.
Kirsten Gillibrand
Cost is the spectre haunting health reform. For many decades, the great flaw in the American health-care system was its unconscionable gaps in coverage.
Atul Gawande
The important thing is to know why we want to dance. We dance a solitude that we have inside us and cannot occupy with anything. This gap, that emptiness to which we put movement is the TANGO.
Carlos Gavito
I think I’ve finally learned to stop worrying about how big the gaps are between my novels’ publication.
Justine Larbalestier
Time perception is very much about how you sequence your activities, how many activities you layer overtop of others, and the types of gaps, if any, you leave in between activities.
Douglas Coupland
In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, we did create Color of Change, an organization which focused on African-Americans in particular, because we felt that there was a big gap there in terms of online advocacy which had left the black community particularly vulnerable.
Van Jones
There are still substantial areas of disagreement, .. you simply have to look at the public statements to see there is a significant gap.
David Trimble
The world has also learned that economic growth, by itself, cannot close the gap between rich and poor.
Dalai Lama
I went to graduate school with zero expectation. I kind of backed into it. I wanted to go back to school because I felt gaps in my literary background. I studied mostly twentieth-century English literature in college, so I thought, ‘Maybe I’ll go back for my writing.’
Susan Minot
The gap between verse and poetry is enormous. Between good poetry and good prose the gap is much narrower
Michael Longley
The enormous gap between what US leaders do in the world and what Americans think their leaders are doing is one of the great propaganda accomplishments.
Michael Parenti
During the decades after Brown v. Board of Education there was terrific progress. Tens of thousands of public schools were integrated racially. During that time the gap between black and white achievement narrowed.
Jonathan Kozol
That’s the biggest gap in sports, the difference between the winner and the loser of the Super Bowl.
John Madden
If we are transparent, with nothing to hide, the gap between language and being disappears. Then the Muse can speak.
Stephen Nachmanovitch
Science offers the chance to cure debilitating and once-intractable disorders like hemophilia and sickle cell disease. But we need to make sure the ability to access these therapies, or the risk that someone can be locked out of them, doesn’t widen gaps between the rich and poor.
Scott Gottlieb
every healthy marriage is composed of walls and windows. The windows are the aspects of your relationship that are open to the world—that is, the necessary gaps through which you interact with family and friends; the walls are the barriers of trust behind which you guard the most intimatesecrets of your marriage.
Elizabeth Gilbert
Technology is closing the gap between what one can imagine and what one can do and as a result the equality of opportunity is unmatched in human history.
Matt Mullenweg
The greatest gap in sports is between the winner and the loser of the Super Bowl. The winner has confetti, parades, rings, the whole thing. The loser puts his head down and goes to his house.
John Madden
The historian has before him a jigsaw puzzle from which many pieces have disappeared. These gaps can be filled only by his imagination.
Gaetano Salvemini
I am always watching old films and trying to fill gaps in my knowledge.
Edgar Wright
Between thought and spoken word is a gap where intention can enter, the symbol be twisted aside, and the lie come to be.
Ursula K. Le Guin
If you ever feel distant, never mistake who has drifted away.В  Prayer will close this gap.
Tad R. Callister
If [lawmakers] lose elections in part because of their votes on the background-check bill or their position on the terror gap bill, then there will be a rethinking of this issue within the Republican conference.
Chris Murphy
We should be uncomfortable with the growing gaps in our society, and we cannot allow ourselves to become desensitized to these injustices.
Ayanna Pressley
I guess I’m interested in the behind-the-surface feelings of the human condition, in my own way. I was always struck by the gap – at least in the books I was reading – between what people tell stories about and what I actually feel. I started thinking about a gap between fantasy and reality.
Signe Baumane
A way has to be found to enable everyone to benefit from the fruits of the earth, and not simply to close the gap between the affluent and those who must be satisfied with the crumbs falling from the table, but above all to satisfy the demands of justice, fairness and respect for every human being.
Pope Francis
Put simply, the rich pay a lot of taxes as a total percentage of taxes collected, but they don’t pay a lot of taxes as a percentage of what they can afford to pay, or as a percentage of what the government needs to close the deficit gap.
Ben Stein
Content marketing is more than a buzzword. It is the hottest trend in marketing because it is the biggest gap between what buyers want and brands produce.
Michael Brenner
Where there is an absence of international political leadership, civil society should step in to fill the gap, providing the energy and vision needed to move the world in a new and better direction.
Daisaku Ikeda
The gap between rich and poor is, in fact, widening enormously. This idea of building up the powers of people who are already powerful and keeping everyone else back is a recipe for endless misery and conflict.
Robert Wyatt
After three League games, we have the same number of points as last year even if we have played two away games this time round, … As we got back on the right track last season, including making up an eight-point gap in a few games, we just need to stay calm.
Adriano Galliani
CRATEL is a center with a two-fold mission – to explore technology as an expressive element and to use technology to bridge gaps between diverse groups of people.
John Harrison
For a novelist, the gaps in a story are as intriguing as material that still exists.
Sara Sheridan
If ever there comes a time when everyone you vote for wins and they do everything you think they should do, there will still be a gap between what is and what ought to be.
William J. Clinton
There is no gap between art and politics.
Bruce Cockburn
The world is richer than ever, and the gaps between rich and poor are wider.
Anna Lindh
The Americans provide still more advanced military assets and equipment; the Europeans are lagging behind. And eventually it will be difficult to co-operate even if you had the political will to co-operate because of the technological gap.
Anders Fogh Rasmussen
The best way to improve economic prospects for women is to improve job prospects for the men in their lives, even if that means increasing the so-called pay gap.
Phyllis Schlafly
I am interested in the gaps between one piece of sidewalk and the next. I am interested in the things for which we don’t always have a name, and the things that are not easy to articulate – the difference between what we think and how we feel.
Amy Bloom
It has actually been suggested that warfare may have been the principle evolutionary pressure that created the huge gap between the human brain and that of our closest living relatives, the anthropoid apes. Whole groups of hominids with inferior brains could not win wars and were therefore exterminated.
Jane Goodall
Reducing the economic gap may be impossible without also addressing the gap in empathy.
Daniel Goleman
I did a lot of thrift and vintage. I would mix those pieces into some of the more inexpensive items from Express, Gap, Old Navy, and Clothestime.
Katy Perry
I’m always interested in very, very futuristic music and bridging the gap between the physicality of organic guitar music and trying to translate that into something electronic is really fascinating.
Justin Broadrick
The interaction of genetic and external influences makes my behaviour unpredictable, but not undetermined. In the gap between those words lies freedom.
Matt Ridley
Be equal to your talent, not your age. At times let the gap between them be embarrassing.
Yevgeny Yevtushenko
Much arrogance is necessary equipment for an artist, I think. Not sufficient, but necessary. It carries one across the gaps.
Ursula K. Le Guin
Where there is a lack of other connections, of meaningful moments, in our lives, music can often full the gap.
Sena Jeter Naslund
Alcohol doesn’t console, it doesn’t fill up anyone’s psychological gaps, all it replaces is the lack of God. It doesn’t comfort man. On the contrary, it encourages him in his folly, it transports him to the supreme regions where he is master of his own destiny.
Marguerite Duras
I wouldn’t describe myself as a home run hitter. I’m just trying to hit the ball hard in the gaps. Just backspinning baseballs and hitting line drives.
Andrew Benintendi
Documentaries are a powerful and effective way of bridging the gap between worlds, breaking through to new audiences that wouldn’t otherwise be engaged – in essence, not preaching to the choir.
Olivia Wilde
Many of my friends and family are scratching it out somewhere decidedly south of the ever widening gap between the haves and have nots, looking at losing their homes, colleges they can’t afford and healthcare they can’t avail themselves of.
Don Cheadle
It’s true that the gender pay gap is complicated. It’s true that it is very slowly getting smaller. But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. It would have to be a pretty HUGE conspiracy for every reputable major news outlet to report on it annually if it was a massive feminist lie.
Laura Bates
We take it for granted sometimes that certain parts of our history are told, and we take it for granted that we know all that stuff, and we move forward along on that basis, but there are also massive gaps, and we have to try to address them.
Chiwetel Ejiofor
The Gap has always been an iconic, go-to brand that reminds me of my childhood.
Theophilus London
My solution would be to bridge the skills gap, such as coal to gas training, you have to give people a sense of hope that they have the tools to be able to diversify and stay in the community where they wish to live.
Shelley Moore Capito
So geographers, in Africa maps, With savage pictures fill their gaps, And o’er uninhabitable downs Place elephants for want of towns
Jonathan Swift
Gaps don’t/just happen./There is a/generative element/inside them,/a welling motion/ as when cold/waters shoulder/up through/warmer oceans./And where gaps/choose to widen,/coordinates warp,/even in places/constant since/the oldest maps.
