Art doesn’t just happen by accident. It is about pulling out new tricks and trying new things.

I’ve tried to incorporate new ways of playing the game.

As always, things happen sooner rather than later on ‘Arrow.’

Where you come from now is much less important than where you’re going. More and more of us are rooted in the future or the present tense as much as in the past. And home, we know, is not just the place where you happen to be born. It’s the place where you become yourself.
I’ve noticed that worrying is like praying for what you don’t want to happen.

I tend to take on a lot of things. And then they all just seem to happen at once. Or maybe I’m not good at saying ‘No’. But the juggling’s fun.

Everyone has a different life story. Things happen rapidly for someone, and things move slowly for others.
Things do not happen. Things are made to happen.
Anyone who tells you fatherhood is the greatest thing that can happen to you, they are understating it.
I wanted people to know that I’ve been through the rain. I’ve been broken into pieces; I had a daughter at such a young age. There were times people would say, ‘That’s it for her.’ But that didn’t happen.
I think my movies are very much about the female gaze… But it’s not going to happen magically if you’re a woman. It’s still something you have to deconstruct, but it’s not something you have to be vigilant about.
Never open a book with weather. There are exceptions. If you happen to be Barry Lopez, who has more ways to describe ice and snow than an Eskimo, you can do all the weather reporting you want.
When you have all these new police officers and resource officers coming into schools, what I’m worried is going to happen is we’re going to increase the school-to-prison pipeline, which disproportionately affects students of color and lower social status.
I really believe in fate and that everything happens for a reason. There’s always a plan. Even things that happen to you that feel like an obstacle or a disaster in the moment will pave the way for your next step.
If you’re a single man and you happen to be in this business, you’re deemed a player. But I don’t see myself as a ladies’ man.
The trouble with progress is that it tends to happen slowly and quietly. It’s not necessarily going to shout about itself, or make the nightly news like a disaster or a scandal would.
Between you and me, odd things happen always on set.
Some people take the view that we happen by accident. I think that there is something much deeper, of which we have very little inkling at the moment.
I was Paul Schrader’s assistant for six months before I went to film school, and he’s very much about knowing what’s going to happen on every page before you even start writing dialogue – the entire plot and character arcs are mapped out.
My mother told me once that she had her talk with God whenever she started a new sweater: ‘Please don’t take me in the middle of the sweater.’ And as soon as she finished knitting a sweater, and it was blocked and put together, she already had the wool to start the next sweater so that nothing bad would happen.
He is the best man who, when making his plans, fears and reflects on everything that can happen to him, but in the moment of action is bold.
I think many people are terribly afraid of being demoted by the Darwinian scheme from the role of authors and creators in their own right into being just places where things happen in the universe.
Apartheid does not happen spontaneously, like bad weather conditions.
No evil can happen to a good man, either in life or after death. He and his are not neglected by the gods.
At the end of the day, you are in control of your own happiness. Life is going to happen whether you overthink it, overstress it or not. Just experience life and be happy along the way. You can’t control everything in your life, but you can control your happiness.
If you keep thinking about what you want to do or what you hope will happen, you don’t do it, and it won’t happen.
It’s better to not overthink and let things happen normally instead.
My interpretation of the word ‘ugly’… I like ugly beauty. That can happen. In France, we have phrase ‘jolie laide.’ We like certain women who are not pretty or cute – it’s the opposite in France of pretty. It’s more strange and interesting.
I don’t believe that if you do good, good things will happen. Everything is completely accidental and random. Sometimes bad things happen to very good people and sometimes good things happen to bad people. But at least if you try to do good things, then you’re spending your time doing something worthwhile.
I learned that it is faith that decides whether something will happen or not.
In general, I think the world is a good place if you work hard, believe in yourself, have good intentions, and if you are kind to people, I believe that good things happen to you.
If my barrel meets the ball, I think good things are going to happen.
What will happen to sex after liberation? Frankly, I don’t know. It is a great mystery to all of us.
I am a sports enthusiast, and if given an opportunity, I want to be a sportsman, even today. I want to promote the sport that is indigenous to India. Kabaddi is a matter of national pride. Why can’t cricket, hockey, football and kabaddi be given equal platforms and co-exist? I believe that can happen.
There’s just something about BJ Penn that gets people amped up. You don’t know what’s going to happen but something is going to happen. He might disappoint you, make you happy, make you cry or make you jump out of your chair, but he’ll do something to you.
The only reason for time is so that everything doesn’t happen at once.
I can’t change the past, but one person can change the future – anything can happen.
I have a deep, deep belief that if I tell you I’m going to crack you with a clean shot to the chin inside one minute of the first round and you will be unconscious, well, then that’s what will happen.
When you set the right targets, aspirations, and you work efficiently and diligently, the numbers happen.
The best things happen when you’re not overthinking it.
We tend to think of human trafficking as a foreign issue, not something that could happen here in our own back yards. But it’s a fast-growing problem in the United States, in every area, with no real defined demographic.
You have to face things, have faith in what you do and go for it. Think, ‘What’s the worst that could happen?’
I always wanted to be a father and thought it would be great, but it just took the right woman and the right time to make it all happen.
Generation Alpha has very different expectations for the entire world. Everything that’s going to happen in their lives needs to be visual, on demand, adaptive, in demand, and we have to find a way to embed that into our toy experiences.
Fantasy is an area where it is possible to talk about right and wrong, good and evil, with a straight face. In mainstream fiction and even in a good deal of mystery, these things are presented as simply two sides of the same coin. Never really more than a matter of where you happen to be standing.
People have things that happen between them. I certainly don’t keep grudges.
Things happen. And good things happen, and bad things happen. And I’m a person – I’m a believer that everything happens for a reason.
When I was about five, I gave my heart to Jesus Christ, and since then it’s just been a stronghold in my life. Really, through the shark attack and all the hard times that my family and I went through, it gave us unity and perseverance to push through all this crazy stuff that we never knew was going to happen.
I think the defining moment in my career is the day that I moved to Nashville – September 1, 2001. That’s the biggest step to getting here is making that move. Anything that happens, the wonderful opportunities that happen to you, can’t happen until you make that move.
For seven years, I made films in the cinema verite tradition – photographing what was happening without manipulating it. Then I realised I wanted to make things happen for myself, through feature films.
Very few things happen at the right time, and the rest do not happen at all. The conscientious historian will correct these defects.
To some extent, Seattle remains a frontier metropolis, a place where people can experiment with their lives, and change and grow and make things happen.
There will always be crazy things that happen in our lives, but love is the central connector. If we commit to love and partnership, the other stuff doesn’t matter.
Courtship is like simmering mutton. You cook for hours and hours to taste the soft meat. It doesn’t happen in two seconds!
Accidents happen and all of that, but it’s how we pick ourselves up from the accidents that matters.
The tiniest event can tear a hole in the grey curtain of reaction which has marked the horizons of possibility under capitalist realism. From a situation in which nothing can happen, suddenly anything is possible again.
I’d rather be Vincent Price than a red-neck character actor. You can’t predict what will happen.
You not supposed to feel down over whatever happen to you. I mean, you’re supposed to use whatever happen to you as some type of upper, not a downer.
Magic happens, see. It’s just like on those bumper stickers, the ones that say, ‘Miracles Happen’, or ‘Jesus Happens’. I never really took those too seriously. I mean, they’re bumper stickers. Yeah, yeah, I know what you’re thinking. Miracles? Right. Jesus? Maybe. But magic?
Every bad situation is a blues song waiting to happen.
I know people who have written big hit country songs that are really kind of terrible songs, but for the rest of their life, they’re the guy who wrote that. You’ve got to be careful; if you don’t want that to happen, don’t write those songs.
It’s best to have failure happen early in life. It wakes up the Phoenix bird in you so you rise from the ashes.
This is the great crisis in football now. It’s not just Rangers; it’s a lot of clubs. Big clubs always create more debt despite the huge income they have. It’s almost an achievement, isn’t it? They make so much money, and yet, still, their debts rise and rise and rise. How does that happen? It’s absurd.
For a moment, nothing happened. Then, after a second or so, nothing continued to happen.
I’m a believer in karma, and I’m also a believer that things happen for a reason.
I would sincerely regret, and which never shall happen whilst I am in office, a military guard around the President.
I feel like I put pressure on myself to perform well and to play well and to do well. That’s what I expect of myself. It’s not always going to happen, but I can certainly sort of put myself in the position where I can get the best out of myself.
Sometimes being old is used as an insult, which is bizarre because, if you’re lucky, that’s literally going to happen to you. It’s a strange thing to gloat about: being born recently.
You see the rise and fall of Sears and others. It’s just a reminder that this can happen to us too.
There are very few fundamental shifts in global infrastructure that can happen in our life times. The financial infrastructure is one of them, and the Blockchain is changing the way we think about the transfer of value.
I write about my feelings, things that happen in my life and experiences.
Music itself is going to become like running water or electricity. So it’s like, just take advantage of these last few years because none of this is ever going to happen again. You’d better be prepared for doing a lot of touring because that’s really the only unique situation that’s going to be left.
If you don’t make things happen then things will happen to you.
I never know, when I start writing a story, what’s going to happen, or how it will all get sorted out.

Sponges grow in the ocean. That just kills me. I wonder how much deeper the ocean would be if that didn’t happen.
To play 18 years in Yankee Stadium is the best thing that could ever happen to a ballplayer.
I have a message for all the birdies who try to get in touch with people online who they think might help them to meet me or give my personal information. That will never happen. Don’t believe anything anyone tells you on social media about me because not even my parents know what I am up to.
Every time something bad happens to me, I don’t ask the question, ‘Why did it happen to me?’ The question I ask is, ‘Why did it happen for me?’
We went from a world where almost nobody knew anything about computers to a world where almost all of us are computer geeks for a huge fraction of our day. And I’d like to see that happen with the digital world of biological molecules, too.
What might be taken for a precocious genius is the genius of childhood. When the child grows up, it disappears without a trace. It may happen that this boy will become a real painter some day, or even a great painter. But then he will have to begin everything again, from zero.
You never know what’s going to happen in the draft. You just wait until your name gets called and then things happen.
The attraction of the virtuoso for the public is very like that of the circus for the crowd. There is always the hope that something dangerous will happen.
Yes, exercise is the catalyst. That’s what makes everything happen: your digestion, your elimination, your sex life, your skin, hair, everything about you depends on circulation. And how do you increase circulation?
We all have bad things that happen in our lives, and a lot of us wonder how we can go back to before the event, whatever it is. ‘Fallout 4’ is about realising that your life has a new normal. We want to put you in the shoes of someone who knows what life was like before this.
I am a firm believe in the power of dreams, because the world is basically one giant realization of people’s collective dreams come true. We need to dream to aspire to do something that keeps us striving. But those dreams and ideas and wants mean nothing without execution, which doesn’t usually happen without a plan.
Sexism isn’t a one-size-fits-all phenomenon. It doesn’t happen to black and white women the same way.
When I was 20, I thought I was 30 – but I was so far from it. When you’re young, you want everything to happen now. As you mature, you can look back and see all the great things you achieved with time and patience.
We’re a band and we just happen to be chicks, that’s the way we’ve always thought of ourselves.
We want justice, but at the same time, we gotta love and come together and bring unity, and I feel it’s gonna happen.
The revolution of blockchain is not going to happen from outside the system; it’s going to happen from within the system.
You never know what’s going to happen in the NFL. That’s probably the thing I’ve learned most – expect the unexpected and go from there.
Apparently there is nothing that cannot happen today.
You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.
I happen to love creating handmade ornaments even when I mess up I still have fun.
Happy accidents are real gifts, and they can open the door to a future that didn’t even exist. It’s kind of nice sometimes to set up something to encourage or allow happy accidents to happen.
From an evolutionary standpoint, human consciousness has not been around very long. A little light just went on after four and a half billion years. How often does that happen? Maybe it is quite rare.
I was bullied at school, and I let that get hold of me and withdrew into myself – I regret letting that happen.
Life’s short. Anything could happen, and it usually does, so there is no point in sitting around thinking about all the ifs, ands and buts.
Fame isolates people from reality. That happens to many artists, and I don’t want it to happen to me.
The highest duty of the man is not to his father, but to his wife; and for the sake of that woman he abandons all other earthly ties, should any of these happen to interfere with that relation.
Balancing trying to be an athlete trying to get ready for WrestleMania, training twice a day, to everything you do at the office to remembering that you have a wife and kids and everything else – it’s challenging, but you just make it happen. In some ways, it’s no different than anyone else’s life.
I’m a comeback waiting to happen. No one deserves it more than I do.
While the debate over banned books usually seems to happen just outside the gates of government, it takes on a new danger and urgency when legislators get involved. Their actions cause voices to be silenced both inside and outside the books. That’s un-American.
Things always happen in series.
The most widely criticised singers in the history of opera, Maria Callas and Franco Corelli, happen also to be the best singers. I am honoured for being part of their group.
