I will be the 43-year-old guy in the jumpsuit. In my estimation and my image of myself is that I am 23 and can get away with it. If I didn’t have the show, I would be in one right now. It would be denim, but I love a terry.
For all my success with the Ramones, I carried around fury and intensity during my career. I had an image, and that image was anger. I was the one who was always scowling, downcast. I tried to make sure I looked like that when I was getting my picture taken.

I’m definitely responsible for the image that I put out there. But it does become frustrating, because I don’t want ‘sexy’ to be my defining characteristic. I’d love for my ambition and will and intellect and sense of humour to define me as well.
I know that everyone who listens to radio creates you in a visual image that they need you to have. Whatever that is, I thought, let them have it. Let me be who the listener needs me to be and let me not contradict that with the reality of my photograph and risk disappointing them.
Now they show you how detergents take out bloodstains, a pretty violent image there. I think if you’ve got a T-shirt with a bloodstain all over it, maybe laundry isn’t your biggest problem. Maybe you should get rid of the body before you do the wash.
What matters most in politics is personality. It’s not issues; it’s not image. It’s who you are and what you represent.

Greece needs to work on a cleaner image. It’s a big problem, as they have this reputation of being so corrupt.

The Bible tells us that God will meet all our needs. He feeds the birds of the air and clothes the grass with the splendor of lilies. How much more, then, will He care for us, who are made in His image? Our only concern is to obey the heavenly Father and leave the consequences to Him.
When I used to perform weddings, the image I always had was the image of a triangle, in which there are two partners and then there is this third force, this third being, that emerges out of the interaction of these two.

I really fell in love with the art of making clothes when I was dancing on tour. Creating my stage image through clothes was a blast. I discovered a total sense for what cool chicks and rockin’ dudes like to wear. Total Skull is for those people. People that like to rock – total rock.
In 1970 I realized that there was negligible risk from x-rays but many radiographs had poor image quality so that the risk from a false negative was significant.

You have to think about your image and how you want people to view you. And if it becomes too much, people will get kind of tired of you.

Think about what people are doing on Facebook today. They’re keeping up with their friends and family, but they’re also building an image and identity for themselves, which in a sense is their brand. They’re connecting with the audience that they want to connect to. It’s almost a disadvantage if you’re not on it now.
I’ve always liked people who know me to like me, because I think I’m quite likeable. But people who make up their minds based on the image in the papers or a voice on a pop record? They’re idiots.
Many of the network television shows have done takeoffs on ‘Family Circus,’ including ‘David Letterman,’ ‘Friends,’ ‘Roseanne,’ and others, and, in my estimation the use of them is a compliment to the popularity of the feature, which just by mentioning it’s name sets up the image of a warm, loving family-type feature.

I’m not against being beautiful or sexy or anything, but I have this ‘cool’ image that I want to keep.

I often think about how my sons will come to know about September 11th. Something overheard? A newspaper image? In school?

Hopefully each film can be given a musical voice of its own, which is not to say that the instrumentation is always unique, but that the relationship between the sound and the image is unique.

To seek after any shape of God, and to assign a form and image to Him, is a proof of man’s folly.

I do believe that the name, image, likeness for an individual is a fundamental right – that any individual controls his or her name, image and likeness – and I don’t believe that a student-athlete who accepts a grant-in-aid simply waives that right to his or her name, image, likeness.
I feel like a lot of the industry and media portray this image of what beautiful is, or how you should dress, or how you should look, and I don’t think it’s healthy.

Cuba is like going to a whole other planet. It’s so different but it’s so similar to the United States, to Miami. It’s like a doppelgaenger. It’s the mirror image. And I have no doubt, that once Cuba becomes democratic, that it will be the favorite tourist destination for Americans.
I needed to find my own worth and shake the image after having done ‘Showgirls’ at age 21.
Therefore, when we arrive in a place and talk to new people about a new image, it is very hard for them to visualize it. That’s where the drawings are very important, because at least we can show a projection of what we believe it will look like.
Film is better than digital in every way. It has better contrast ratio, better blacks, and better color reproduction. It’s a more organic image, which is more the way your eyes see.

I am an American man, and in America, we still think of figure skaters as little girls in pretty, sparkly dresses – I worked very hard to change the perception and image of figure skating, and I think I’ve done a great job on my end, but in figure skating, taste needs to evolve.

Where story comes from, I don’t know. I know that I become obsessed with something. An idea, an image, a person, the way a person talks. And then something starts happening that I can’t explain, and it has a lot to do with language.
I became a larger than life figure for one reason only. When you’re quoted in the ‘Wall Street Journal’, the ‘New York Times’, constantly as the expert in the business people assume you’re a lot bigger than you are. And then I had to run like hell to catch up with my own image.
I think people would actually be surprised by what we put out. Unfortunately the shadow that the original founders cast was that they were just artists that can’t write books so people swept the whole of Image with that paintbrush.
I don’t rely on the strength of my image.
Diamonds have an image of purity and light. They are given as a pledge of love and worn as a symbol of commitment.

One of the many problems with the American left has been its image as something rather too solemn, mirthless, herbivorous, dull, monochrome, righteous, and boring.

Because I was a shy and awkward child, I used humour to deflect attention. It was a controlling mechanism. Because I could use it to control my image.
It has very little to do with my work, but if your image is not sexy enough, people won’t listen. It’s part of the game.
I want adventure in my life. I want to do things I haven’t done before. These Hollywood people are so careful of their image and looking right, but there’s a wildness when I come into the photographs. I just want to wade through rivers, climb mountains.
Many people have this image of me. For a long time, I cared about that.
Art has been good for my soul. And it’s been good for my brain. I think I’m a better painter now than I was a musician growing up. You struggle to see things and translate an image through your hands to a canvas.
Without health life is not life; it is only a state of langour and suffering – an image of death.
I personally battled with my own body image for years. I used to tell myself, You can’t wear anything sleeveless or strapless.

I always have this image of a woman running across a desert carrying children, trying to find water and food, not knowing when they’ll get that.

Marvel has put out good product. DC has put out good product. Even Image has put out good product, as far as I’m concerned… although it’s few and far between. But it’s not getting recognized, no matter who’s doing it.

I think the world is very much embracing this whole concept of musicians going out and playing their instruments and playing music for music as opposed to music that has something to do with some form of image or imagery.
When you really need help, people will respond. Sincerity means dropping the image facade and showing a willingness to be vulnerable. Tell it the way it is, lumps and all. Don’t worry if your presentation isn’t perfect; ask from your heart. Keep it simple, and people will open up to you.
When we make the cerebral state the beginning of an action, and in no sense the condition of a perception, we place the perceived images of things outside the image of our body, and thus replace perception within the things themselves.

Every advertisement should be thought of as a contribution to the complex symbol which is the brand image.

I don’t believe in signing anything and everything that comes my way. I leave it to my agency to help narrow them down for me, but I do research it myself before signing. The image of the brand and its ambassadors go hand in hand.
On days when I do not work, I am working on my image.
I hate being confined to a particular image.
My father said, ’10 minus one is zero.’ It means that even if you do good things 10 times, it is no use when you do some bad thing once. But it doesn’t mean that I think I have positive image, so I always need to be careful about what I’m doing. I don’t want to frame myself.
Models are interested in me, mostly because of my ‘bad boy of poker’ image.

Half the battle is selling music, not singing it. It’s the image, not what you sing.

Every few years, I change my look for the simple reason that I get bored. If you Google Image me, you will see so many different looks: long hair, short hair, clean shaven, beard, etc.

Style is the image of character.
The worst times were the years I was alone. The image to the public entering the courtroom was eight men, of a certain size, and then this little woman sitting to the side. That was not a good image for the public to see.

We are visual creatures. When you doodle an image that captures the essence of an idea, you not only remember it, but you also help other people understand and act on it – which is generally the point of meetings in the first place.

A golden rule: to leave an incomplete image of oneself.
Man is important in one sense only. He was made in the image of God: That is his importance. He is not important for his body, ego, or personality. His constant affirmation of ego-consciousness is the source of all his problems.

Not to speak disparagingly of Justin Bieber or Rihanna, but they’re not so hands-on with their image or their sound. They don’t write the music. They have people doing things for them.

This may sound a little harsh, but I don’t care about my career. Really, I don’t like actors who are always planning what they’re going to do next or always worrying about doing something that will go against the image they’ve created. To me, that’s almost like an attack of narcissism.
There’s no doubt that usually a president’s public image is enhanced by going to war. That never did appeal to me.
Once they’re on paper, they’re gone. I like to do as much with the words, as far as image goes.

My musical taste and image is going to change naturally. It’s not forced; I do what comes natural to me. Sometimes, I like to be dark… other times, I like to be really light and ladylike.

If you’ve noticed that I don’t use long takes, it’s not because I don’t like them, but because no one gives me the necessary means to treat myself to them. It’s more economical to make one image, then this image and then that image, and try to control them later, in the editing studio.
I keep the bad-boy image just to make my fans happy.
I’ve always been aware that the image you patiently construct for an entire career can be ruined in a minute. It scares you a bit, but that’s the way things are.

I beat myself up the whole time because I’m striving for something I’ll basically never achieve. I portray this image of confidence, of arrogance, and it’s not really me. I’m never satisfied, and I’m never content. It means I’m a bit of a mess some of the time.

Finally, in my critique of the immigration image of America, it is also important to know that we’re not only a nation of immigrants, but we are in some part a nation of emigrants, which often gets neglected.

You know, you grow up with the image of John Travolta being super cool – ‘Saturday Night Fever,’ Brian De Palma, handsome young god… he, in reality, is a very silly man. And I mean that in a good way. He’ll walk around the set talking in little weird voices, making people laugh.
It’s what you do every time. You isolate what you know, and you create a mental image of what you’re doing. Every time you speak you don’t have to think about it. Words come out of your mouth based on what you know. That’s the same job every time.
You give the guy an Image Award three years in a row and then turn on him like that? If that’s the role they want to fulfill, they need to send a clearer message.

One quality of a good songwriter is to be vague. A vague notion, a vague image, but enough to give the listener the opportunity to make more out of what’s being said than is there. That’s the great thing about Bob Dylan’s songs: We the listeners have made more out of them than he ever intended.
It takes a long time to free oneself from chatter – goals, social media, image, persona. And if you’re able to move through in that way, you can actually start trying to create from a different place.
I was at the Olympic Games winning medals and I still doubted my image. I doubted what I looked like. That’s sad.
My attitude towards drawing is not necessarily about drawing. It’s about making the best kind of image I can make, it’s about talking as clearly as I can.

People think I appear on television to promote my image. That’s not fair. I hate filming. I turned down ‘Strictly Come Dancing.’ But television is a wonderful opportunity to promote scientific ideas. ‘Super Doctors’ is a very thoughtful piece.

In Los Angeles there’s, like, this awful image because the girls are so skinny. I don’t think it’s attractive whatsoever, and I also think that it gives a bad image to kids that are in their early teens. It’s not healthy.

For me, this is a familiar image – people in the organization ready and willing to do good work, wanting to contribute their ideas, ready to take responsibility, and leaders holding them back, insisting that they wait for decisions or instructions.
My image had always been very heterosexual, very straight. So it was a nice experience for me, a chance to clarify my own feelings about gay and lesbian civil rights.
You always want to look your best at events like the Globes, Emmys, or Oscars. It’s a part of the business that I am not particularly comfortable with. I would prefer to turn up in a pair of jeans and an old shirt, but it’s all about image – the studio wants you to look your best.
If the only way a library can offer an Internet exhibit about the New Deal is to hire a lawyer to clear the rights to every image and sound, then the copyright system is burdening creativity in a way that has never been seen before because there are no formalities.
To me, a staircase looks like a series of dark and light horizontal stripes, which is exactly how you’d draw a staircase. So I know how the image is going to look on the page.

So long as TARP money is wrapped up in GM, the company will never shake its ‘Government Motors’ image. That label, as competitors and GM employees are keenly aware, is code for one thing: ‘GM is a failure.’

China once again disgusts the world, portraying the image of a cruel, perverted people devoid of any feelings towards animals.

The image I had was that Oprah books were fluffy.
The image is one thing and the human being is another. It’s very hard to live up to an image, put it that way.
The paranoiac is the exact image of the ruler. The only difference is their position in the world. One might even think the paranoiac the more impressive of the two because he is sufficient unto himself and cannot be shaken by failure.
