On the manufacturing side, surfing was a lot harder than sailing. You had to find guys who could shape, who could glass, and you’re looking for good people among all these surfers, you know. Keeping the quality up was always a problem.
Hobart Alter
I have opinions on everything. I’m a stubborn old mule. The biggest problem is keeping my mouth shut.
Mika
In principle, if you understood the mechanisms of keeping things repaired, you could keep things going indefinitely.
Cynthia Kenyon
I babysat kids in a ShopRite, which is a grocery store. They had a babysitting center so that parents could bring their children while they shopped. It was awful. I also was not very good at keeping the kids calm.
Kate Micucci
When I started wearing a yarmulke, I wanted to stand out or take the form of whatever was inspiring me. But now I think there’s something to not working it, to keeping it on the inside, and it just being kind of like a secret.
Matisyahu
I read Leisel Jones’ book. She said she retired at 27 and said, ‘Now what?’ because swimming was the biggest part of her life. So for me, that’s why I’m keeping up my studies on the side even if it’s going to take a bit longer than normal, but at least I’ll have it.
Jessica Fox
Yes, I’m always keeping my eye on trends and designers. With certain favourites, I can tell you what season an item of clothing is from. I’ve been to a few catwalk shows, and I love seeing how the clothes look on a person.
Nicola Adams
I think the big thing is keeping positive energy in the clubhouse. The amount of time we spend in there and spend together carries over into what you do on the field.
Matt Harvey
Keeping a consistent band going is a bit like getting the Aston Martin out the garage – you have to run it every now and then!
Colin Salmon
‘ABCD’ is impossible without Prabhudheva. So ‘ABCD 3’ will have Prabhudheva for sure. The first and second films were written keeping Prabhu in mind, and same goes for the third series as well.
Remo D’Souza
So I try not to do press and if you can keep the balance of keeping a certain degree of anonymity and do interesting work then you can hope for a degree of career longevity.
Charlie Hunnam
Promise keeping is a powerful means of grace in a time when people hardly depend on each other to remember and live by their word.
Lewis B. Smedes
Big meetings and big talk are not enough in a world that is hungry for change. Big action – world leaders keeping their promises, and developing countries committing resources while listening ardently to the voice of the small farmer – is needed to bring big results and prosperity to the world’s poor.
Sylvia Mathews Burwell
Buonaparte has often made his boast that our fleet would be worn out by keeping the sea and that his was kept in order and increasing by staying in port; but know he finds, I fancy, if Emperors hear the truth, that his fleet suffers more in a night than ours in one year.
Horatio Nelson
Males have probably always enjoyed watching the defeat of other males, but without the invention of numerals and the subsequent invention of the concept of keeping score, we could never have had a million sports channels.
Patricia Marx
And so I put down some of the things that he said, about keeping your tools sharpened and not letting them lie on the ground where they get hurt or get abused and dirty and can’t find them. And some thoughts about how his father used to do things.
Bruce Nauman
I’ve been pretty good about keeping my nose to the grindstone. I feel like I won a lot of matches from hard work and persistence, even maybe when I had better options as far as shot-making.
Andy Roddick
And I want to be able to – you know, make Republicans and Democrats famous for keeping jobs in California.
Meg Whitman
Perhaps most important for nomads was the belief in the symbiosis that existed between wolf and humans on the steppe. Wolves were an integral part of keeping the balance of nature, ensuring that plagues of rabbits and rodents didn’t break out, which in turn protected the all-important pasture for the nomads’ herds.
Tim Cope
It’s just keeping what I want private, private, and the same with Charlie.
Denise Richards
What is discipleship? It is primarily obedience to the Savior. Discipleship includes many things. It is chastity. It is tithing. It is family home evening. It is keeping all the commandments. It is forsaking anything that is not good for us.
James E. Faust
Sometimes you have the trends that’s not that cool. You may have certain artists portraying these trends and don’t really have that lifestyle, and then it gives off the wrong thing. And it becomes kinda corny after awhile. It’s really about keeping hip-hop original and pushing away the corniness in it.
Kendrick Lamar
This means keeping many trails open at once, inevitably requiring a fairly ‘parallel’ plot. This plot should be discovered rather than announced, so show, don’t tell.
Graham Nelson
In Montreal, there is a friend of mine at school who is a jazz pianist with an amazing voice, and we sort of have this fusion/soul/R&B/folk music kind of thing. We’ve been keeping it low-key and opening for some friends.
Jake Epstein
Diseases happen in acidic environments, so it’s very important to keep your body alkaline. Keeping a diet high in leafy greens, spring water, fresh air, raw almonds, lemons, grapefruits, and warm water with juice from half a lemon helps lower acidity levels.
Valentina Zelyaeva
The difference between keeping things clean and keeping kids clean was that things just sat still and waited for the dirt to collect. We kids were carriers. We ran a pickup and delivery service.
Sam Levenson
My main regret about my years in football was keeping my mouth shut like a little mouse, not daring to speak out because I was told you left the managers to get on with the job and that the chairman must never interfere with the manager’s decisions or the performance of his team.
Alan Sugar
Online one day, you log in, and you realise, ‘This is not me.’ Everything you’re posting, you’re doing it in the context of everything you’ve posted before. Let’s delete everything, save the stuff that’s important, and then you only have to organise the one per cent that’s worth keeping.
Evan Spiegel
My mom has always been beside me, always telling me what’s right and what’s not, guiding me through it all, keeping me away from bad company and from bad habits.
Karan Patel
Concealing an illness is like keeping a beach ball under water.
Karen Duffy
You can find Chobani in every major supermarket, in club stores, convenience stores and airports. But we’re not everywhere yet. We have been struggling with keeping up with demand.
Hamdi Ulukaya
My mother gave up her career bringing us up, and she has played a very important role in keeping us grounded. Even now I don’t take my work home, my stardom home. It ends where it is supposed to end. There is a life beyond stardom, and it’s a very normal life which I cherish. I anyway don’t handle attention very well.
Sonakshi Sinha
The war is coming to the streets of America and if you are not keeping and bearing and practicing with your arms then you will be helpless and you will be the victim of evil.
Ted Nugent
He that loses his conscience has nothing left that is worth keeping.
Izaak Walton
I really like supernatural stories, but, to me, ‘Witches of East End’ is really grounded. It’s not just going for the magic tricks and keeping it superficial and action-y.
Madchen Amick
I just want to grow spiritually with the Lord. I’m keeping strong at it, just trying to make my walk with faith a little better.
Kevin Durant
Acting-wise, I did a web series. I play a music agent in a series called ‘Keeping Up with the Downs.’
James Michael Tyler
Learning ballroom dancing is great for your brain. But it only works for three to six months. After that, you’ve got all the benefit you can get, and so you have to move on to yoga, and then Tai Chi, and then bridge, always keeping on the steep part of the learning curve.
Nolan Bushnell
It’s my mother’s engagement ring so I thought it was quite nice because obviously she’s not going to be around to share any of the fun and excitement of it all – this was my way of keeping her close to it all.
Prince William
I was a master at keeping my feelings in.
Mark David Chapman
Most redoubted lord and right sovereign cousin, may the Almighty Lord have you in his keeping.
Owen Glendower
God our Lord would have us look to the Giver and love Him more than His gift, keeping Him always before our eyes, in our hearts, and in our thoughts.
Saint Ignatius
I came up in Brooklyn singing doo-wop music from the time I was 13 to the time I was 20. That music served a purpose of keeping a lot of people out of trouble, and also it was a passport from one neighborhood to another.
Richie Havens
What works in a relationship of very public people is not making the relationship public – keeping it as personal as it can be. It’s the only way it is real.
Salma Hayek
Because of Kipling, I’ve sometimes wondered about keeping a mongoose about the house. But given the cobra population in Silver Spring, Maryland – zero, when last I checked – we hardly need a Rikki-Tikki-Tavi.
Michael Dirda
My officers and men understood wishes so well that this movement was executed under fire, the right wing keeping up fire, without giving the enemy any occasion to seize or even to suspect their advantage.
Joshua Chamberlain
Recently I’ve been collecting Star Wars figures again. When I was a kid I couldn’t afford them. Now I can so I’ve been buying them and keeping them in their box for a later date when they’ll be worth a lot of money.
Mackenzie Crook
Painting’s not important. The important thing is keeping busy.
Grandma Moses
Now that I know what goes into making a pilot, keeping it on the air, and keeping your fans, I’m at a point now where I do a pilot and just hope for the best. If it doesn’t work out, it doesn’t work out.
Laura Prepon
We must continue to honor America’s commitment to keeping families together and not turn our backs on refugees and asylum seekers.
Jimmy Gomez
Keeping young people away from Shakespeare is like removing a link to their humanness.
Tim Crouch
I think, especially in our business we meet a lot of people, and sometimes you spend so much time being nice to strangers, and so, you know, keeping a clear head and just being nice to each other. And that’s all the advice I can give.
Catherine Zeta-Jones
I sometimes start keeping a journal about the writing process itself. Particularly when I get the ideas, and I am trying to brood over the chaos phase. In writing a novel, you really have to brood over a lot of chaos of ideas and possibilities.
Sue Monk Kidd
Small businesses provide 75 percent of new U.S. jobs and are the backbone of our economy, and no outdated ban should be keeping small business owners from collecting the same interest their money could earn if it were held by an individual.
Sue Kelly
We don’t know, ultimately, if we’ll end up in San Francisco, but we’re talking about keeping the house. It would be nice to always have a place here.
Matt Cain
I give complete respect to any couple that stays together, however they do it, whether they do it by going on red carpets or going hiking together, you know, or keeping themselves really quiet and trying to stay out of all that press stuff.
Chris Martin
It’s important to remember that the animals are not grieving with us. They’re very accepting. They’re not lying there thinking ‘How could you do this to me? Why aren’t you keeping me going?’ Pets don’t do the human things of guilt and anger and recrimination that we do. They come and go with great acceptance.
Jon Katz
For me, it’s more about keeping it simple with a rock and roll edge. It’s all about accessorising.
Lulu
People of noble character are afraid of keeping friendship with dishonorable people. But people of discreditable character consider friendship with the dishonorable as a blood relationship.
Thiruvalluvar
I believe God’s keeping the records, and I believe you will be rewarded even in this life. Somehow, some way, God will make it up to you. It may be He protected you from an accident you never knew. You can’t give God something without God giving you more in return, whether it’s peace or joy or satisfaction.
Joel Osteen
Fashion is something that I want to be involved with for a long time, and I want to show that I can give people what they want while still keeping my pizzazz and my razzle-dazzle.
Johnny Weir
What makes me happy is just keeping my brain challenged and stimulated and on its toes.
Seth MacFarlane
The romantic image of the ancient world is very inspiring, as is nature itself, but I think the dissatisfaction with our modern world is the strongest force keeping me going.
Varg Vikernes
If New Mexican voters believe the path to create American jobs is keeping taxes low, then they have an option. That’s my campaign.
Heather Wilson
Let’s bear down on what we can do together: keeping Tennessee a state with a strong financial condition, helping Tennessee be the number one location in the Southeast for higher-quality jobs. And making certain that all Tennesseans, regardless of their circumstances, have an opportunity for higher-quality education.
Bill Haslam
Anecdotes are factoids of questionable provenance, burnished to a high gloss, often set in gilded venues and populated with familiar names as background atmosphere, purged of ambiguity in the interest of keeping the narrative flowing smoothly.
John Gregory Dunne
I always feel this huge responsibility to the script when it arrives, keeping it confidential.
Miranda Otto
What is so seductive about texting, about keeping that phone on, about that little red light on the BlackBerry, is you want to know who wants you.
Sherry Turkle
I’m really bad at keeping secrets.
Alfie Allen
Americans cannot realize how many chances for mental improvement they lose by their inveterate habit of keeping six conversations when there are twelve in the room.
Ernest Dimnet
Winning a Grand Slam changes everything. There is so much off-court stuff to deal with. And there are expectations of keeping it going that make it tough.
Mary Pierce
Obviously I want to support women, and I believe in women, and I think we should support each other, but we shouldn’t go into extremes. Some women can get very aggressive towards men, but we need men and love men, so keeping the right balance is the most important thing.
Anja Rubik
I want you to begin keeping a calendar of who you see and when: the first day each year you see buttercups, the first day frogs start singing, the last day you see robins in the fall, the first day for grasshoppers. In short, I want you to pay attention.
Derrick Jensen
Keeping an active mind has been vital to my survival, as has been maintaining a sense of humor.
Stephen Hawking
We must pay greater attention to keeping our bodies and minds healthy and able to heal. Yet we are making it difficult for our defences to work. We allow things to be sold that should not be called food. Many have no nutritive value and lead to obesity, salt imbalance, and allergies.
David Suzuki
I love playing video games. I love listening to music. Just surfing the web. Facebook, Twitter, keeping in touch with people from home.
Trey Burke
The Kennedys tried to avoid using the big U-shaped table, but when they couldn’t, they had several tricks – including keeping the flowers simple – to keep it from appearing overly stiff and formal.
Letitia Baldrige
Keeping your head down and just writing is only part of the equation, so I surround myself with smart people to help sell my books.
Michael Connelly
Hunger is a political issue, and there are several things politically that are keeping people hungry – not funding food stamps adequately, not funding school lunches adequately. So there is a political solution to the problem of hunger.
Tom Colicchio
The highest levels of fame in the entertainment business are geared toward keeping the artist disconnected, disinterested and continuing to make product and not developing any sort of ‘normal life.’
Rob Lowe
It’s a director’s job to tell a story and he’s very well versed in telling stories with a bit of comedy in them and keeping the pace of the movie right and that’s exactly what he did. He was observant of a world he didn’t understand but he told a wonderful story.
Cuba Gooding, Jr.
An inexhaustible good nature is one of the most precious gifts of heaven, spreading itself like oil over the troubled sea of thought, and keeping the mind smooth and equable in the roughest weather.
Washington Irving
Ever since boyhood I’ve made a religion of keeping in shape by regular, conscientious exercise.
Gene Tunney
There’s plenty to read about keeping your sanity while raising children, but it’s all common-sense stuff about task division and taking breaks and the relentlessly repeated magic of date night with your spouse. What’s missing is some ‘tude.
Jeffrey Kluger
TV isn’t a wide medium when it comes to boldness on the small screen because of the audience. It reaches out to the audience but keeping the traditions intact.
Nia Sharma
Anytime you open your mouth there’s going to be someone who’s put off. I try to deal with that by keeping the topical portions of my show brief. I realize that some people wish my comments were briefer.
John Hall
I have seen lonely people of advancing age, yet as constant as angels, keeping faith to those they loved who fell in wars that current generations, not having known them, cannot even forget. The sight of them moving hesitantly among the tablets and crosses is enough to break your heart.
Mark Helprin
By training and keeping doctors in underserved areas, we’re working toward a goal of increasing access to quality health care for more of our communities.
Chris Gibson
We mostly don’t get sick. Most often, bacteria are keeping us well.
Bonnie Bassler
The denial of female aggression is a destructive myth. It robs an entire gender of a significant spectrum of power, leaving women less than equal with men and effectively keeping them ‘in their place’ and under control.
Katherine Dunn
Hydration is key! I know that is an obvious one, but drinking tons of water and keeping your skin hydrated is very important.
Devon Windsor
Art never harms itself by keeping aloof from the social problems of the day: rather, by so doing, it more completely realises for us that which we desire.
Oscar Wilde
You win football games by first getting possession and then running 3- and 5-yard plays. Not by Hail Mary passes. Common sense, elbow grease, and keeping a positive attitude.
Greg Gianforte
Any idiot can make money. Keeping money, very few can do.
John McAfee
In our age there is no such thing as ‘keeping out of politics.’ All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia.
George Orwell
I had to get used to wearing a mask and wearing a prosthetic and performing with those things while singing and expressing myself through stylized movement, while keeping it as human as possible so the audience could be closer to the horror of the Phantom.
Gerard Butler
Even in an organization that’s doing something big and bold, there’s the mundane, day-to-day execution work of keeping it going. But people need to stay connected to the boldness, to the vision, and stay plugged in to the main vein of the dream.
Peter Diamandis
Showbusiness is such a mad profession, I find commerce a wonderful outlet for keeping me sane.
Roger Moore
Pop music is always great for keeping the energy up, but it can get really old, especially after eight hours, just because there aren’t that many great pop songs.
Emily Ratajkowski
Those people who shun us just because of the label we’re on, or the fact that we’ve got a video out there that’s getting us somewhere, are only limiting themselves, because they aren’t keeping an open mind.
Joel Madden
At the end of the day, sleep is a barometer of your emotional health. And so if you’re not in the right place where you need to be, then you’re going to have voices keeping you up at night because you have to work through those issues.
Mehmet Oz
For me, it’s all about keeping an open mind; if you are always learning then you are always improving.
A. J. Pritchard
Abroad, our most important policy is to support our troops and continue forward-thinking foreign policy in the war on terror – keeping our enemies on the run and hitting them before they hit us.
Christopher Bond
There is a theme that runs through my work, and that is: the toxic property of keeping secrets.
Joyce Maynard
I have trouble keeping plants alive. Even plastic ones.
Jane Krakowski
Most sailing ships take what they call trainees, who pay to be part of the crew. The Picton Castle takes people who are absolutely raw recruits. But you can’t just ride along. You’re learning to steer the ship, navigation; you’re pulling lines, keeping a lookout; in the galley you’re cooking.
Billy Campbell
I was always taught that book keeping was more relevant than book reading. The only thing worth reading was meant to be a balance sheet.
Ashwin Sanghi
One of the greatest joys of tennis is having a nice volley and not really keeping score, not really looking at the lines, but just catching up with each other.
Jane Kaczmarek
Keeping the risk management plan up to date can transform it from a door stop into a vital project management tool. Remember: what you don’t know can kill your project.
Bruce Pittman
I haven’t had Botox because my face is a bit lopsided and I depend on keeping everything animated so that people don’t notice.
Marian Keyes
SDPD works to protect everyone regardless of their immigration status because trust between the community and law enforcement is key to stopping crime and keeping neighborhoods safe. If someone commits a crime, they will be held accountable whether or not they are a citizen.
Kevin Faulconer
Making North Carolina a Top 10 Educated state is the backbone for a strong economy, attracting good paying jobs, helping incomes rise and keeping our communities vibrant.
Roy Cooper
I think the American people are very smart in understanding our country is very trustworthy with nuclear weapons. We’ve had them from the beginning. But they have also been critical for keeping the world more at peace than it would have been if it hadn’t been for the American nuclear umbrella.
Haley Barbour
The Postfix security model is based on keeping software simple and stupid.
Wietse Venema
Leadership is inspiring people. Management is keeping the trains running on time.
Andy Dunn
It’s not easy keeping a diary. You have to be pretty committed.
Karl Pilkington
I love my life as a missionary, keeping myself on the front lines. The image in my mind is that God, my general, stands at the door when I go out every morning; and, knowing what the war is like, day after day he gives me his most powerful weapon: his Spirit. For this I am grateful.
Clayton M. Christensen
All I can think is that the owners of Chick-Fil-A have decided they have had enough, that they’re just going to focus on selling chicken sandwiches to as many people as they can, and they figure that keeping their views about marriage to themselves is better than having a bunch of angry activists on your doorstep.
Mike Gallagher
I don’t really know of the Jewish tradition of comedy, only the Jewish tradition of not keeping your mouth shut. Complaining about all that is hard, unfair or ridiculous in life-having strong feelings, and not being able to suppress them. That, to me, is Jewish.
Fred Melamed
Keeping customers is about the experience, and the employees control the culture and temperature of the business. Never forget that.
Steve Wynn
The capture, taming, training and keeping of eagles is highly ritualized. Most of the birds, which have a life span of about 40 years, are caught when very young – either snatched from a nest or trapped in a baited net.
Stephen Kinzer
I can make any type of music, so I wouldn’t want to describe myself as having one type of sound. I think music is about keeping it diverse.
Tyga
I believe that fitness needs to come from within you. You need to respect your body. Only then will you have the zeal to maintain it. For me, keeping fit is a part of my lifestyle.
Arjun Rampal
Literature is a beautiful way of keeping the imagination alive, of visiting worlds you would never have time to in your day-to-day life. It keeps you abreast of a wider spectrum of human activities.
Abraham Verghese
Secretary Clinton is tough, smart, and understands better than any candidate the challenges that parents are talking about around dinner tables and keeping families up at night.
Tom Perez
When you get older, keeping the private stuff private seems less important.
Lawrence Block
In Chicago, you have an absence of strong family units, and that absence gets filled by gangs. You have a failure in the school system, after-school programs and other social programs to help keep kids off the streets. Amnesty International speaks to that in some way, by keeping these issues in the forefront.
Lupe Fiasco
I think my biggest strength is that I always keep doing exactly the same thing. There are forwards who go crazy with euphoria, but after a goal, I let myself fall back to the midfield, recharge. Keeping yourself cool and concentrated on your mission.
Robin Van Persie
Swarms are one very simple way of keeping ourselves ahead of the machines.
Louis B. Rosenberg
Certainly, protecting oppressed people, stopping ethnic conflict and promoting responsible governance are worthy goals. But none is as important for American security and prosperity as keeping the peace in the Middle East, Europe and East Asia.
Michael Mandelbaum
Keeping busy: This is a problem that you’re glad to have.
Michael Winslow
By keeping patients awake for longer, we build up a strong sleep pressure.
Matthew Walker
My job is to support businesses, that means promoting British commerce in the big emerging markets that have been neglected in the past. It means keeping Britain open to inward investors, trade and skilled workers. It means cutting red tape which is suffocating growing companies which create jobs.
Vince Cable
As chairman, I commit to keeping Business Roundtable CEOs at the forefront of constructive public policy debates as we pursue an agenda of greater growth and opportunity for all Americans.
Doug McMillon
I always encourage our people and young business people that I meet to have a respect for cash, keeping some in their pockets and purses at all times. To me, that’s essential.
Muhtar Kent
To make it hard, to make it difficult almost impossible for people to cast a vote is not in keeping with the democratic process.
John Lewis
We have used the Bible as if it were a mere special constable’s handbook, an opium dose for keeping beasts of burden patient while they are overloaded.
Charles Kingsley
The world changes fast, and a lot of the old country folks have a hard time keeping up with it, and it makes them sad.
Jason Isbell
I’m just back in line with every other actor looking for a job right now and keeping my fingers crossed.
Joe Lando
These days I settle for feeling only 85 percent sure about most things, most of the time. I believe this is keeping me sane, and I also believe that it’s keeping me human. In fact, I’m 85 percent sure of it.
Elizabeth Gilbert
The terror dementia sufferers must feel is unimaginable, but the techniques they use to hide their difficulties – the ducking and diving and keeping the world laughing – are perfectly understandable.
Laurie Graham
I am of mixed minds about the issue of privacy. On one hand, I understand that information is power, and power is, well, power, so keeping your private information to yourself is essential – especially if you are a controversial figure, a celebrity, or a dissident.
Susan Orlean
Keeping children alive and free of disease is not a political issue and cannot be put into a partisan box.
Timothy Simons
All of our intelligence agencies, our Department of Defense, are all working to meet this threat. But it’s a fast moving world; it’s a place where offense is easier than defense, and keeping up with the next innovation in cyber-warfare is an enormous challenge.
Mike Pompeo
What I argue is that if I’m going to be held accountable for my actions that I should be allowed to record… my actions. Especially if somebody else is keeping a record of my actions.
Steve Mann
I think that Twitter and YT and blogs are keeping media more honest. Everyone can be a journalist now. Everyone is a fact checker.
Shane Smith
The IRS targeting certain groups for harassment because of their politics would be unfair. If we found out the NSA was keeping special tabs on everyone who worshiped at a mosque or took a Bible trip through the Middle East, you’d have an uprising.
Gail Collins
I’m taking dance lessons and getting stuck in. It’s a great way of keeping fit, and it’s obviously a big part of Bollywood movies, so I need to learn.
Amy Jackson
The motivation part is all essential in keeping my voice, but there are the human factors of discipline.
Jerome Hines
When you learn to keep fighting in the face of potential failure, it gives you a larger skill set to do what you want to do in life. It gives you vision. But you can’t acquire it if you’re afraid of keeping score.
Pat Summitt
A huge part of keeping women in their place has to do with creating a really limited definition of what a ‘real’ woman is like. And a ton of that what-makes-a-woman nonsense is attached to motherhood. Apparently, by virtue of having ovaries and a uterus, women are automatic mommies or mommies-to-be.
Jessica Valenti
When I was 12, I had an operation at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, and they corrected the curving in my spine. I’ve got two 12-inch rods and eight screws going up my back keeping me straight, and they fuse together with my spine, so now I can’t really live without them.
Princess Eugenie of York
My grandfather used to write one sentence every day in his journal: ‘I love Anne more than ever today.’ I think that was his meditation – keeping him in his marriage, and also his appreciation for it. It was very touching.
Justin Theroux
Discovering various economists, economic works, reading financial periodicals and keeping up on current events in geopolitics and economics around the world opened my eyes to many facets of how the extended order works.
Kurt Bills
If black people use their resources properly, they can become as competitive as any group in society – take control of our neighborhoods, our businesses, our schools, including our teachers. The only thing keeping black people from doing it is this idiotic idea about integration, about being racially balanced.
James Meredith
I’m not so great at keeping secrets; maybe that’s why no one ever tells me things.
Emily Osment
You learn so much by having customers and figuring out what they want and keeping them satisfied.
Bre Pettis
I don’t have ADD, but I only like to pay attention to the things I like to pay attention to, and things like getting a TV and getting the cable working are beyond me, and so I let such things lapse, sometimes for years. This applies to keeping my apartment clean.
Jonathan Ames
I don’t know if I’ll ever feel like I’ve made it. That is part of the reason why all of us, as artists, are always wanting more and working towards more and keeping busy. There is just so much that we all want to accomplish, and I just have so many goals that I haven’t met yet.
Cassadee Pope
True patriotism isn’t cheap. It’s about taking on a fair share of the burden of keeping America going.
Robert Reich
Denzel Washington invoked confidence. When you have confidence, you can do anything. And that’s what happened. I learned about being honest and keeping it true, keeping it true in my performance.
Derek Luke
I don’t like to see projects that are all black or all white. It’s how life is. I do like to make sure that I do a nice black family film; that’s like keeping my home base. I do other things, but I like to always come back to a positive family film, because of all the negative influences today.
Vivica A. Fox
There are brilliant out lesbians and gay men and bisexuals and transgendered people and heterosexuals keeping the fire of change alive. Not a day goes by when I don’t feel grateful to them for their work.
Jasmine Guy
Jealousy, that dragon which slays love under the pretence of keeping it alive.
Havelock Ellis
On the personal side, family is really important to me. I have a big family – five kids and 12 grandkids – so keeping that going is wonderful. And I do a lot of philanthropy. I’m chairman of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
Charles Schwab
There can be no intelligent control of the lead danger in industry unless it is based on the principle of keeping the air clear from dust and fumes.
Alice Hamilton
The way most people fail is in not keeping up the heart.
Lady Gregory
I’m keeping my fingers crossed and hoping everyone loves what I do and loves what’s on screen.
J. R. Ramirez
The older I get, the more I like the idea of utilitarianism. I think that I’m not a trend-driven person. I really believe in keeping your canvas very basic and sort of adding the accouterments from there. I look at creating intrigue with outfits through accessories.
Erin Wasson
Publishers vet books, and they do a good job keeping out the low quality. But they also miss some good quality.
J. A. Konrath
I’m keeping my power to myself and my glow. I’m not giving anybody my glow anymore.
Jessica White
I played soccer in the Alps when I was a kid. There was a blizzard that happened. And little local German kids were out there shoveling lines. Keeping it moving.
Pat McAfee
A good memory is surely a compost heap that converts experience to wisdom, creativity, or dottiness; not that these things are of much earthly value, but at least they may keep you amused when the world is keeping you locked away or shutting you out.
Michael Leunig
I really, really pride myself on being a professional and a man of keeping my word. It means a lot to me, truly.
Charlie Hunnam
I was writing my Ph.D. in the late 1980s and was keeping an eye on what was happening in the world. It became obvious to me that Russia couldn’t live without computers. I think I worked this out a year before anyone else. I started looking for people who could help import them.
Bidzina Ivanishvili
A key to keeping your husband is getting him to miss you. That keeps a marriage fresh.
Tori Amos
All our efforts to guard and guide our children may just get in the way of the one thing they need most from us: to be deeply loved yet left alone so they can try a new skill, new slang, new style, new flip-flops. So they can trip a few times, make mistakes, cross them out, try again, with no one keeping score.
Nancy Gibbs
One advantage in keeping a diary is that you become aware with reassuring clarity of the changes which you constantly suffer.
Franz Kafka
People have been very strong against Obamacare since I was first elected, and they still feel that way. They want us to work to get rid of it. They also are very strong for keeping the government running.
Chuck Fleischmann
For keeping hair long and healthy, I like to use silk pillowcases; they conduct less heat and keep your ends less frayed. Also, I sleep with my hair in a very loose top bun to keep my ends away from my body heat. This also keeps your hair from getting tangled at the nape of your neck.
Jonathan Van Ness
I think people hire me for the slightly weird angle that I bring. Part of the trick is keeping it sort of simple; you have to give the impression of not that much music playing when there’s really a lot.
James Horner
Kendall is really satisfied on her role in ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians.’ With her modeling career, she’s so busy. If she’s not walking a runway, she’s shooting a campaign or traveling around the world with her fashion obligations. She’s a pretty busy little girl.
Kris Jenner
If eating out, order your meal and ask the server to wrap up half of the portion to take home with your for the next day, keeping your portion size in check, and stretching your dollar into two meals.
Cat Cora
More guns are not the answer to keeping our kids and our communities safer.
James Langevin
When the kids were young, they just wanted to be around us. We were units of comfort and support. As they get older, we work the turnstile, helping the exasperated customer pass whatever temporary obstacle is keeping them from their next exciting thing. Now we’re the ones who just like having them in the room.
John Dickerson
Of all the numerous forms that governments have taken over the centuries, of all the concepts and institutions that have been tried, none has succeeded in keeping the State in check. The problem of the State is evidently as far from solution as ever.
Murray Rothbard
I guess I’d like to be known for being an innovator, fostering creativity, thinking outside the box. You know, keeping people playful.
Nolan Bushnell
We are united around a simple goal, and that is keeping the government open while protecting our constituents from the harmful effects of Obamacare.
Tom Graves
Only together do Europe and the U.S. stand a chance of keeping liberal democracy as the central doctrine for organizing world affairs.
Victor Ponta
Great leaders find a way to rise above politics while at the same time keeping their party’s loyalists in the fold.
Mercedes Schlapp
I have got height so I am little bit too tall for ‘keeping.
Mitchell Starc
I make all my decisions by listening to my instinct and then keeping my fingers crossed it will lead to a good place.
Felicity Jones
I guess whatever maturity is there may be there because I’ve been keeping a journal forever. In high school my friends would make fun of me – you’re doing your man diary again. So I was always trying to translate experience into words.
Anthony Doerr
We discussed politics, but we also talked about the importance of hard work, personal responsibility, living within your means, keeping your word. Those lessons stay with you throughout your life.
Bob Ehrlich
The whole idea of juicing is good if you are trying to diet and use it in limited basis. I use juice drinks only once a week. I use emulsified drinks because in emulsification you are keeping everything. You are keeping the pulp, you are keeping the skin with all of the phytonutrients.
Montel Williams
On ‘Idol,’ Steven Tyler will be sitting at a table with two other judges, and part of his job will be keeping his yap zipped while they talk. This makes no sense at all, since Tyler has zero yap-zipping skills.
Rob Sheffield
In the end, my reasons for moving down the timeline and introducing a new cast have more to do with keeping myself entertained, on the assumption that if I get bored, my readers are going to be even more bored.
Raymond E. Feist
I wrote ‘Soul Keeping’ because we are taught more about how to care for our cars than how to steward our souls. But you cannot have an impactful life with an impoverished soul.
John Ortberg
People in Texas wear cowboy hats; they’re good at keeping the sun off your neck and face.
Taylor Sheridan
Keeping a lid on taxes is not just good for the taxpayer. It’s a powerful way to force government to be more accountable, set priorities and spend smarter. Let me repeat that: more accountable, set priorities and spend smarter – that’s what we need to be about.
Tim Pawlenty
Individual people shouldn’t be fearful, because by and large our government, the federal government – people always talk; obviously, they don’t trust the feds, whatever. The federal government and local communities have done a pretty good job at keeping us safe.
Sherrod Brown
Parenting is the most important job on the planet next to keeping Gary Busey off the nation’s highways.
Dennis Miller
The best crime novels are all based on people keeping secrets. All lying – you may think a lie is harmless, but you put them all together and there’s a calamity.
Alafair Burke
I attribute my entire football career, as far as getting me started, getting me interested, keeping me that way was my father. He went to every game even though he was crippled and wasn’t real healthy.
Bob Lilly
A whole lot of us believers, of all different religions, are ready to turn back the tide of madness by walking together, in both the dark and the light – in other words, through life – registering voters as we go, and keeping the faith.
Anne Lamott
I had been keeping an off eye on the advertising field, thinking I might become an idea man and a copywriter.
Carl Sandburg
Experience has taught me that you have to improve all the time-little bit by little bit-and not keeping starting everything from new.
Jean Alesi
I eat very clean, healthy food at all times because I’m very focused about keeping myself in shape.
Jodi Lyn O’Keefe
I probably shouldn’t treat interviews as therapy sessions, but I don’t keep a diary, so these end up being my way of keeping track of where I’m at and letting it all out.
Doug Liman
I am a skateboarder, and to stay fit for skating I have to stay away from a lot of things. I go to parties and that’s fun for me, but between skating and lifting and everything, I know what I have to do the next day, so I’m very conscious about my schedule and keeping it.
Ryan Sheckler
In the recent years there have been criticisms levelled against Japan suggesting that she should offer more military forces to the United Nations forces and thereby play a more active role in the keeping and restoration of peace in various parts of the world.
Kenzaburo Oe
The Blackberry is really essential for keeping up on my emails when I’m out of the office, which is a lot.
David Neeleman
Keeping a habit, in the smallest way, protects and strengthens it. I write every day, even if it’s just a sentence, to keep my habit of daily writing strong.
Gretchen Rubin
A great deal has been said about my commitment not to raise taxes. It’s a core value – it’s common sense – it’s important to keeping and growing jobs – and it’s mainstream!
Tim Pawlenty
The future is keeping you out of the present time.
Van Morrison
President George W. Bush’s aggressive war on Islamic terrorism produced a 100 percent perfect track record of keeping the United States safe from another attack. The result has been increased security for the American people, who, in turn, have become complacent about the true nature of the threat.
Monica Crowley
A sparkling house is a fine thing if the children aren’t robbed of their luster in keeping it that way.
Marcelene Cox
I think about never losing my voice, never giving in, never selling out, always keeping black, always sticking to the street. Staying neighborhood and not Hollywood.
Paul Mooney
As I got older, I never considered that tons of people were watching me on television every week. I give a nod to my parents for keeping me as normal as I could be in an un-normal adult world.
Angela Cartwright
Procrastination is the art of keeping up with yesterday.
Don Marquis
Getting and keeping my immunity became very important to me. For I needed to take care of myself and my family. No one else was worried about me.
Monica Lewinsky
So I figured in keeping with the record, I’d do something off the wall which is show up for free and wing it… I don’t know, I’m just going to play some songs. I think it’ll be fun.
Paul Westerberg
The problem isn’t that Silicon Valley is keeping women down or not doing enough to encourage female entrepreneurs. The opposite is true. No, the problem is that not enough women want to become entrepreneurs.
Michael Arrington
I am keeping with tradition today. After I learned of my Golden Globe nomination, I went to the dentist, so today, let’s make it the orthodontist.
Frankie Muniz
I feel like there’s an obsession with pace right now in theater, with things being very fast and very witty and very loud, and I think we’re all so freaked out about theater keeping audiences interested because everybody’s so freaked out about theater becoming irrelevant.
Annie Baker
We want you to sit down and leave your egos at home and let’s get an understanding as to where all this is foolishness coming from. There are others who are putting things out there or throwing a stick and hiding their hand and keeping things built up in the media.
Afrika Bambaataa
I started my career with television, and whatever work I did was keeping the content as my topmost priority. Same goes with the movies: I never grabbed any work!
Yami Gautam
My No. 1 priority, and it always has been this, is keeping our team together and making sure we have the right guys in the right positions to make a run at this for a long time.
Drew Brees
Besides the actual reading in class of many poems, I would suggest you do two things: first, while teaching everything you can and keeping free of it, teach that poetry is a mode of discourse that differs from logical exposition.
A. R. Ammons
When I go on the plane to fly home, I’m literally capable of forgetting what I do for a job. That also comes about because I choose to take massive breaks between projects, and because I choose to do this ridiculous thing of keeping home, home.
Eric Bana
Parents are key when it comes to keeping kids off drugs. Good parenting is the best anti-drug we have.
Mel Carnahan
Keeping a relatively small, predominantly U.S. Special Forces presence in Afghanistan to continue to train the Afghan army past December 2016 is a wise policy that would benefit both Afghans and Americans.
Peter Bergen
In my early twenties, that’s when I really began to write. Before that, I was too busy working, keeping myself going.
Paula Fox
There are certain pursuits which, if not wholly poetic and true, do at least suggest a nobler and finer relation to nature than we know. The keeping of bees, for instance.
Henry David Thoreau
The British have a remarkable talent for keeping calm, even when there is no crisis.
Franklin P. Jones
I am literally the worst person at keeping secrets. I’d be the worst spy of all time.
Keri Russell
I think we should be pushing for amnesty and a path to citizenship for every undocumented person residing in the United States who has not committed a violent crime, with a special emphasis on keeping families together.
Conor Oberst
I’m starting to develop my practice, learning how to come home after a really long day of shooting and letting myself breathe. I’m drawing and painting and listening to my music and keeping those things separate.
Hunter Schafer
It is not poverty so much as pretense that harasses a ruined man – the struggle between a proud mind and an empty purse – the keeping up of a hollow show that must soon come to an end.
Washington Irving
The characters that populate my books are global nomads in their own right, keeping multiple homes around the world and constantly jet-setting to new places.
Kevin Kwan
Keeping people fired up starts with having a really clear vision for what the company is aiming to do.
Nick Woodman
The secret to keeping moving is keeping moving.
Dick Van Dyke
I’ve always been steady on and off keeping diaries and journals. I try to document everything so I can remember it the older I get.
Meaghan Jette Martin
When I started music, I think it was responsible for keeping me sane, because training as a dancer really kept me in good spirits amid all the crazy stuff that happened when I first became popular.
Kate Bush
After all, sustainability means running the global environment – Earth Inc. – like a corporation: with depreciation, amortization and maintenance accounts. In other words, keeping the asset whole, rather than undermining your natural capital.
Maurice Strong
I’m good at keeping secrets. My friends always tell me their secrets because I keep them well.
Erin Richards
Many art-worlders have an if-you-say-so approach to art: Everyone is so scared of missing out on the next hot artist that it’s never clear whether people are liking work because they like it or because other people do. Everyone is keeping up with the Joneses, and there are more Joneses than ever.
Jerry Saltz
Keeping the facts differentiated from the fantasy is incredibly helpful in gathering your information as you discover if a person is a match for you.
Tracee Ellis Ross
Keeping score is for games, not friendships.
John C. Maxwell
I smoke as much as I want and chew tobacco a good deal of the time. I don’t pay any attention to the rules for keeping in physical condition. I think they are a lot of bunk. The less you worry about the effect of tea and coffee on the lining of your stomach, the longer you will live, and the happier you will be.
Zack Wheat
I’m very comfortable being at home and keeping my head down, really. It’s nice being invited to night clubs and stuff, which is nice once in a while, but I prefer to kind of keep to myself.
Matthew Lewis
Especially for those of us who lived in single cells, you had the time to sit down and think, and we discovered that sitting down just to think is one of the best ways of keeping yourself fresh and able, to be able to address the problems facing you, and you had the opportunity, also, of examining your past.
Nelson Mandela
That is how our marriage is working so well. My secret of happiness is keeping my contact to the minimum.
Cyrus Broacha
I’m learning the power of going away for the weekend and keeping myself company.
Zoe Saldana
I’m waiting for the candidate who says, ‘I’m keeping things exactly the way they are. I like it this way.’
Jerry Della Femina
You can fix your body, your heart, your diabetes. In Korea, China, and India, there are people who do yoga. They go to the mountains and do breath-in, breath-out meditation. They can live 500 years and not get sick. Keeping their bodies for a long time is possible; even flying in the sky is possible.
Seung Sahn
Because of the terrorist threat, the FBI and CIA have become as important as the military in preserving our freedom. Yet while thanking our military is standard practice in American life, no one thinks of thanking the FBI, the CIA, or the rest of the intelligence community for keeping us safe since 9/11.
Ronald Kessler
I have been keeping myself fit. I am going on holiday next week in the Mediterranean so that I can really unwind after the football season and have a rest.
David Ginola
China will consider herself fortunate if she succeeds in keeping herself intact and is not dismembered or partitioned among the European powers that are colonizing the continent of Asia.
Jose Rizal
The great thing about it is, in Hollywood, certain people are very good at keeping their lives and who they are very private. I’ve never met anybody as down to earth and cool in Hollywood than Matt Damon.
Anthony Mackie
I am not, never have been, and never will be a politician. But I want to tell you the United States has always been proud of having the support of the United Kingdom, of keeping Britain in Europe. We need Britain in Europe.
Evel Knievel
Every day there’s a lot of things I block out, because if I start visualising things, I tend to go completely insane. I’ve always had anxiety issues, and it can totally overwhelm me and suck me under if I’m not keeping focused. I just think and think until I have a panic attack, and then it dies down.
Dev Hynes
Every year, I take 10 of my best friends from high school on a trip. That’s kind of my way for saying thanks to them for being so loyal, for keeping me honest, and for just being great friends throughout this craziness.
J. J. Watt
Keeping politics out of the courtroom is a goal every state aspires to achieve.
Amul Thapar
Circuit training is a great way to go. Keeping the reps high and the weight low, you’ll tone your muscles without bulking up.
Jessica Stroup
The biggest issue is muscle pliability. That’s what I think the biggest secret to me is. What is muscle pliability? Muscle pliability is keeping your muscles long and soft.
Tom Brady
I think that lyrically, ‘Safe’ is a very positive song: it’s very strong; it’s about keeping somebody safe and protecting people. I think everybody anywhere in the world can relate to it. I think everybody wants to feel safe; everybody wants to feel protected.
Shane Filan
Running has been great for keeping me fit throughout my acting career.
Jason Flemyng
We are a democracy, and there is only one way to get a democracy on its feet in the matter of its individual, its social, its municipal, its State, its national conduct, and that is by keeping the public informed about what is going on.
Joseph Pulitzer
I’m keeping the pixie. I hope I inspire people… it’s really cool to have short hair.
Millie Bobby Brown
Finishing is one of the most difficult things to do in cricket. A player can’t be a finisher in just 6 months or one year. You have to be used to that responsibility, keeping on doing what is required from you over a period of time.
MS Dhoni
I’ve always saved. I believe in keeping money back for a rainy day and living within my means. I don’t buy expensive clothes; I have a 10-year-old car I’m hoping to replace when a big job comes in. I suppose when we do go on family holidays, I am quite happy to spend when we are there.
Sanjeev Bhaskar
I am happy being an actor. Donning the hat of a producer was a tough job and a different experience, as it involved watching the crew’s requirements, keeping track of the finances, and also perfecting my role as an actor. But it was a tremendous learning experience.
Nivin Pauly
GOP leaders need to let go of their ego factions and come together with one primary goal in mind: keeping ‘Billary’ from getting back into the Oval Office.
Chuck Norris
Keeping off wheat helps my energy levels.
Darcey Bussell
In hindsight, if I could go back in time and relay a message to my younger self, I would tell him to work on his time keeping, and that the job of a drummer is not to be the one that gets noticed the most on stage, or to be the fastest, or the loudest. Above all, it is to be the timekeeper.
Taylor Hawkins
Best strategy for a first date is to ask her questions. Just keeping asking her questions about herself. Her life, her job, her friends, her taste in movies and music and everything. People mostly just want to talk about themselves, so let her do that.
Michael Ian Black
A reversal is just anything that’s a surprise. It’s a way of keeping the audience interested.
Tony Gilroy
I believe there are three keys to success. For me it is keeping my priorities in order: It’s my faith and my family, and then the business.
Kathy Ireland
A lack of reform – particularly in international tax – has hurt our ability to compete in a global economy by keeping U.S. corporate cash overseas and reducing domestic investment, slowing economic growth.
John Delaney
Everybody does good things, but I’m talking about making major changes in the educational system that would impact an entire race. I’m talking about stopping these young gang members from killing one another. I’m talking about keeping prisons from overflowing.
Jim Brown
A filmmaker chooses an actress keeping the best interest of the film in mind. If he doesn’t cast you, it doesn’t mean there’s a personal agenda. Change is constant, and if you have agreed to be part of this industry, you will have to go with the change. The films and filmmakers, even the audience has changed.
Rani Mukerji
In keeping with original Mormon teachings, much of the property in Hildale and Colorado City is held in trust for the church. Striving to be as self-sufficient as possible, the community grows a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, and everyone, including children, is expected to help bring in the yield.
Scott Anderson
You all had something to do with keeping me employed.
Karl Rove
But, I swear, they’re turning Donna into Annie Hall this season. More ties. More suits. But they’re also keeping her really motivated, ya know? Like, wanting to be a rock journalist. Wanting to be the first woman president.
Laura Prepon
I like keeping people guessing. I like to have fun with them wondering if I’m sane or not.
Tom Green
One of the ways the North Korea regime has kept power is by keeping its people ignorant of the living standards in the outside world. That’s the underlying lie that supports the regime – not that their country is ‘normal’ but that they are better off.
Barbara Demick
When I lived in New York, not only did I have safety locks on the door but I had the music going, keeping the city at a distance, trying to find creative time and peace and so forth.
Ann Beattie
Acknowledging someone is an act of altruism in the first place, so converting that act of altruism into a pizza party or company fleece jacket or a gift card is fine, but it’s not in keeping with spirit in which it all began.
Charles Best
The only gift my dad ever bought me is still in my jewelry box. It died at 10 minutes to 11 decades ago, but the gold Caravelle watch keeps my dad alive. A watch isn’t about keeping time. It’s about stopping it.
Regina Brett
Keeping a secret in the social media age often is impossible.
Drew McIntyre
Keeping religion immune from criticism is both unwarranted and dangerous.
Lawrence M. Krauss
I work very fast, keeping the ideas flowing but making sure they come out the way I intended.
Gavin Bryars
Like my father, I would never as a child throw anything away, keeping old toys, electric motors and bits of broken machines under my bed in what I called my Box of Useful Things.
Nick Park
Thou ought to be nice, even to superstition, in keeping thy promises, and therefore equally cautious in making them.
Thomas Fuller
The dignity of the artist lies in his duty of keeping awake the sense of wonder in the world. In this long vigil he often has to vary his methods of stimulation; but in this long vigil he is also himself striving against a continual tendency to sleep.
Marc Chagall
Many African leaders refuse to send their troops on peace keeping missions abroad because they probably need their armies to intimidate their own populations.
Kofi Annan
In assisting his ‘neighbour’ every day to the best of his ability, and keeping truth, honesty, and kindness perpetually before him, the Boy Scout, with as little formality as possible, is pleasing God.
Robert Baden-Powell
Why does the rest of the world put up with the hypocrisy, the need to put a happy face on sorrow, the need to keep on keeping on?… I don’t know the answer, I know only that I can’t.
Elizabeth Wurtzel
That’s the mark of a man, just keeping your head up, right? Not taking the easy way out.
B. J. Penn
Limited points of view let the writer dispense – and the reader gather – information from various corners of the story. It all becomes a kind of dance, with the writer guiding the reader through the various twists and turns. The challenge is keeping readers in step, while still managing to surprise.
Jonathan Evison
My process is walking down to the locker room, laying everything out to how I like it. I’m very particular about setting up my bags and my dressing situation. I love to pull out that portable speaker and blare music even if nobody else likes it. To me, its just keeping everything the same every single night.
Roman Reigns
My own dream is that we discover that the NSA has been secretly keeping files on members of the National Rifle Association.
Gail Collins
Everyone around me is so strict about keeping me grounded.
Chloe Grace Moretz
I’m good at keeping secrets.
Sam Taylor-Johnson
No more turning a blind eye to Chinese spies in our nuclear labs. No more keeping silent about Chinese slave labor camps.
Steve Forbes
One of the tricks to writing great plays is to get people in a room together and not let them leave. You want the tension to escalate. Keeping them there is the hardest part, so you have to take away any excuse for them to leave.
Adam Rapp
The obvious choice isn’t always the best choice, but sometimes, by golly, it is. I don’t stop looking as soon I find an obvious answer, but if I go on looking, and the obvious-seeming answer still seems obvious, I don’t feel guilty about keeping it.
Eliezer Yudkowsky
The best thing that I got was rehearsing with my father. It was always about the process of figuring things out, and trying something new, and having another take on something and keeping it alive.
Jake Gyllenhaal
USDA is committed to keeping pace with the needs and progress of American agriculture by supporting new markets and movements that will keep farmers profitable and help create middle class jobs across the country.
Tom Vilsack
Anytime you see somebody keeping a secret, that’s symptomatic that something’s wrong with the society around them. That means there’s discrimination or worse.
George M. Church
The family teaches us about the importance of knowledge, education, hard work and effort. It teaches us about enjoying ourselves, having fun, keeping fit and healthy.
Kamisese Mara
We, in our Province, are beginning to realize and appreciate that our slowness in keeping up with our North American neighbours may well have been a blessing in disguise.
Alex Campbell
We’re all constantly keeping score. You can’t help it. But trying to pit ourselves against other people in some measurable way is largely a waste of time.
Ron Howard
Hip hop classes and ballet are what I’ve been keeping up with, and of course my usual abdominal workout, which consists of 500 sit-ups a session. Or I take a 30-minute abs class at my gym. But dance classes are a full-body cardio workout, which always brings me success and keeps me feeling great.
Briana Evigan
I met some fans who said, ‘Please start Twittering!’ They even walked me through it, but I’m terrible at it. I’m so bad at keeping it up. I forget how to use it. And I’m not very savvy: I try to send a private message, and it goes out to everybody.
Jim Parrack
I advise keeping four feet on the floor and all hands on deck.
Ann Landers
I’m keeping my acerbic wit completely fueled.
Janice Dickinson
A wise governor told me a long time ago, political capital you don’t get more of by keeping it. You get it by using it.
Scott Walker
No matter how old you get, if you can keep the desire to be creative, you’re keeping the man-child alive.
John Cassavetes
Keeping his face clean over Watergate was one of Kissinger’s biggest successes; so was his overall handling of the Yom Kippur War.
Alistair Horne
I’m battling with keeping my narcissism at bay as it is, so Twitter was not a good thing for that.
Joel Kinnaman
The way you play, you need to talk about winning. Don’t talk about keeping your card – talk about winning.
Vijay Singh
What I try to get physically healthy people to understand is that they’re going to die someday. There is no way out. And dying isn’t failure, but not living is, so make use of your time. Don’t keeping waiting.
Bernie Siegel
In a weird way, the drama behind the stage was sort of keeping ‘Community’ on people’s minds.
Jim Rash
Our lab had always refrained from keeping our studies secret.
Peter Agre
By far the most important factor in the success or failure of any school, far more important than tests or standards or business-model methods of accountability, is simply attracting the best-educated, most exciting young people into urban schools and keeping them there.
Jonathan Kozol
For me, prayer is not so much me setting out a shopping list of requests for God to consider as it is a way of ‘keeping company with God.’
Philip Yancey
I have started using the expression ‘compassionate activism’: It’s about keeping my heart open so that I can understand the point of view of the other person.
Tracee Ellis Ross
The crucial task of old age is balance: keeping just well enough, just brave enough, just gay and interested and starkly honest enough to remain a sentient human being.
Florida Scott-Maxwell
Nature is ever at work building and pulling down, creating and destroying, keeping everything whirling and flowing, allowing no rest but in rhythmical motion, chasing everything in endless song out of one beautiful form into another.
John Muir
I love to sit down on a beanbag at the end of the day and watch my fish. It’s therapeutic, isn’t it? They’re alive, and I’m keeping them alive. I like the responsibility.
Luke Evans
In the past, I’ve always written about my experiences, and people related to that, but there’s a lot of other things that I’ve never written about that people have gone through. I’m still keeping it young and edgy, but I’m definitely putting more of a mainstream twist to it.
Cassadee Pope
I’m not good at a lot of things. I am not good at keeping my room clean. I am not good at eating healthy. I am not good at sports anymore. I used to be! Not so much anymore.
Zendaya
One of the hardest things I’ve had to deal with in my career is keeping my material topical even though I only release albums every three or four years.
Al Yankovic
There’s something brave and touching about game girls of all ages keeping themselves smart in hard times – one thinks of those wonderful women during World War II drawing stocking seams in eyebrow pencil up the back of legs stained with gravy browning because nylons were so hard to get hold of.
Julie Burchill
National leaders who find themselves wilting under the withering criticisms by members of the media, would do well not to take such criticism personally but to regard the media as their allies in keeping the government clean and honest, its services.
Corazon Aquino
I won this award for keeping my mouth shut, so I think I’ll do it again now.
Jane Wyman
Marriage is nature’s way of keeping us from fighting with strangers.
Alan King
We are not wedded to anyone in Syria. We are not concerned with any personality. We are concerned with keeping Syria in one piece, territorially integral, sovereign, independent and secular, where the rights of all groups, ethnic and others, are fully respected.
Sergei Lavrov
I’m not out to conquer anything, which I think is a good thing. That’s why I also think crazy, different things come my way. I really don’t have an agenda, and I’m really happy not to have one. I’m just keeping it light.
Jane Lynch
The wound-tight, travel-light Obama has a distaste for the adversarial and the random. But if you stick too rigidly to a ‘No Drama’ rule in the White House, you risk keeping reality at bay. Presidencies are always about crisis management.
Maureen Dowd
The political restructuring we pursue in China is aimed at advancing the self-improvement and development of the socialist political system. We will continue to expand people’s democracy and build a socialist country under the rule of law in keeping with China’s national conditions.
Hu Jintao
One of the things I learned the hard way was that it doesn’t pay to get discouraged. Keeping busy and making optimism a way of life can restore your faith in yourself.
Lucille Ball
Your desires will source you with the inspiration to release your outdated beliefs and let go of whatever behavior is keeping you stuck in the past.
Debbie Ford
Well, I took a sabbatical. I walked away from shooting movies because I couldn’t handle the travel. I’m a single parent. I had young kids, and I found that keeping in touch with them from hotel rooms and airports wasn’t working for me. So I stopped.
Rick Moranis
Oh I love gadgets and I pride myself on keeping at the cutting edge of technology.
Alexander McCall Smith
And I think that that emphasis on keeping a family together, alike, I think it’s important.
Janet Suzman
Keeping our eyes on journey’s end is what we need – the place where we see at last the world that is greater than the world, the new creation that cannot be contained in present thought or social order or piety.
Rowan Williams
Don’t keep your own schedule – that will eat too much of your time keeping your own schedule. And when you are tired, stop. Because if you are too tired, you become not productive, and you are wasting time.
Christine Quinn
Meaningful innovation can be an important catalyst in encouraging resilience in seniors, keeping them independent and engaged.
Frans van Houten
Making a series can sometimes feel like you’re keeping a secret for months until it comes out; so when it finalizes in front of you, if you like the final product, it can be very exciting.
Tom Weston-Jones
I do look forward to keeping in touch with the guys, because we’ll always be connected in people’s minds.
Barry Zito
Doug Ford was one of the first of the old pros I saw during my first full year on tour, in 1963. To this day he’s the best chipper I’ve ever seen. One thing Doug did was get the ball onto the green and rolling right away, keeping it as low as possible. He never hit his chips higher than was absolutely necessary.
Raymond Floyd
I always say, ‘Man, the Creator is preparing me for something. He’s keeping the sun on me for some reason. He’s keeping me aligned with that generation.’ Because I genuinely love people, I love hip-hop, and I love using it as a tool to communicate and to create a better vibration.
Doug E. Fresh
The war waged against terror since September 11 puts a strain on democracy itself, because it is mostly waged in secret, using means that are at the edge of both law and morality. Yet democracies have shown themselves capable of keeping the secret exercise of power under control.
Michael Ignatieff
I’ve been able to stay good because of my family and keeping God first. If you don’t have God in your life, how are you going to navigate through this world?
Keke Palmer
When I was really small, my mother had difficulty keeping me dressed, as I liked to be naked! I definitely had very strong ideas on what I wanted to wear. My favourite look was always Action Man and Spiderman. Now though, I really like beautiful clothes.
Cara Delevingne
I have a problem keeping my mouth shut. I usually speak my mind. I’m trying to learn my lesson.
Christina Hendricks
Isn’t privacy about keeping taboos in their place?
Kate Millett
Random House is definitely invested in keeping libraries healthy.
Karin Slaughter
The challenge in my life really is keeping the balance between feeling creatively energized and fulfilled without feeling overwhelmed and like I’m in the middle of a battlefield.
Amanda Palmer
If more women want to be a part of the computer industry today, they have to do more to put themselves there. Nobody is keeping them out.
Roberta Williams
I definitely recommend keeping frozen corn dogs in your freezer.
Ari Shaffir
The worst kind of lying I’ve ever done is keeping things from people.
Elijah Wood
We now accept the fact that learning is a lifelong process of keeping abreast of change. And the most pressing task is to teach people how to learn.
Peter Drucker
At the end of the day, all you can hope for is to go on. The older I get, the more I realize that just keeping on keeping on is what life’s all about.
Janis Ian
A lot of people call me a celebrity chef, but I don’t think that I’m a celebrity. So I want to stay keeping just a chef. That’s more comfortable.
Masaharu Morimoto
Our right to disagree is precious but fragile. The best way to protect and preserve it is to let the other side speak without demonizing them or destroying their right to be heard. Such civil exchanges are the heart beat of democracy – essential to keeping it alive.
Madeleine M. Kunin
I do know many a band out there, because believe me, we’ve played with most of them, who are together because they have to be. They might not talk to each other offstage, but they realize they can earn a living by going out and keeping that music alive.
Gerry Beckley
I like doing something romantic with a girl on Valentine’s Day, like making her dinner and keeping it simple. The more quality time, the better.
Spencer Boldman
It’s a cliche, but the people who enjoy your work and who come up and say, ‘I enjoyed that and I liked that,’ they are the people who ultimately are keeping you in work. And so, it would be rude and ungrateful of me to be anything but polite.
Joe Lycett
I’m a stickler for structure. So I tend to make sure I’m hitting certain points in the script and that I’m progressing and moving things along. You know, are the characters keeping the plot moving along? And are they true, and do I know their motivations?
Allison Schroeder
Real Texans believe in looking out for each other. We believe in honoring our mothers and fathers and keeping our smallest residents – our children – healthy.
Wendy Davis
Orthodox Christianity, by playing upon the emotions of man, is able to accomplish wonders toward keeping him in order and relieving his mind. It can frighten or cajole him away from evil more effectively than could reason.
H. P. Lovecraft
The wine I produce is not for keeping. It’s the wine you want when meeting friends for a game of cards.
Gerard Depardieu
The most important thing that everybody can do, aside from building and keeping your network strong, is make good choices about your health.
Dana Perino
I believe President Obama means everything he says about sticking to the unprecedented backing of Israel and keeping all options on the table against Tehran, as well as countering its adventures in Syria, Yemen, and Iraq.
Ehud Barak
Too often, while well-intentioned, our poverty programs fail the poor. They fail them by keeping them in cycles of dependency.
Sam Brownback
Anyone who’s promoting the exact diet that they were in previous years probably isn’t keeping up with the latest science, though in general, the balance of evidence has remained remarkably consistent – centering one’s diet around whole plant foods.
Michael Greger
Playing well with others is important – not being too flashy, just keeping good time and of course coming up with cool beats. A good snare drum, kick drum, high hat. Just getting good at the hand feet coordination.
Chad Smith
Keeping score of old scores and scars, getting even and one-upping, always makes you less than you are.
Malcolm Forbes
My experience on ‘The West Wing’ was, I think, now rare in that I was pretty young, and I walked into this environment where Aaron Sorkin was giving me a script every week, and Thomas Schlamme and John Wells were keeping the studio off my back, at least as best as they could.
Alex Graves
A woman whose life is involved in the righteous rearing of her children has a better chance of keeping up her spirits than the woman whose total concern is centered in her own personal problems.
Ezra Taft Benson
Pup, who’s like the most amazing, they’re keeping rock ‘n’ roll and punk alive.
Finn Wolfhard
From beginning to end it’s about keeping the energy and the intensity of the story and not doing too much and not doing too little, but just enough so people stay interested and stay involved in the characters.
Deborah Cox
The way I mainly use the Internet is keeping in touch with poets that live far away. My main interest is contemporary American poets and some Spanish language poets, and I keep in touch with their work through either their websites or email.
John Burnside
This is a value-added college education if I have heard one described. And what is the most remarkable about Delaware State University graduates – is they just keeping giving back.
Michael N. Castle
I think things will come once I get the respect that I deserve. Keeping my belt for a long time… Things will happen like normal. I can’t force those things.
Rafael dos Anjos
My exercise varies from yoga to Pilates. The yoga provides me with achieving my balance and mental relaxation, whereas the Pilates allow me to work my inner core through stretching and keeping my muscles toned.
Erin Heatherton
I just wanna build momentum again. Keeping yourself in work is one thing, keeping yourself in good work’s another. But if it doesn’t work out, so be it. As the Taoists say, Learn to accept that which you cannot change.
Ian Hart
I use a Clarins sunscreen every day, even in winter; it’s the secret to keeping beautiful skin even as you get older.
Jeanne Damas
I was in my early 30s, and I longed for real friendships and real relationships, and I started asking myself why I didn’t have that. I had a couple of male friends, but every time I would hang out with them, it felt like there was something keeping us apart.
Jens Lekman
I don’t know how anyone could vote Republican. It’s so obvious that their only interest is keeping the rich rich.
Vivian Campbell
For me it’s all about keeping things simple and feeling comfortable in what I am wearing. I prefer investing in classic well-tailored pieces.
Miranda Kerr
Being real is what keeps me humble. It doesn’t matter how much money I make or how much I accomplish. What’s critical is staying real to myself and keeping my feet on the ground. That’s what helps keep me going.
Anuel AA
Even though it’s not a widely appreciated yarn, any suit made from a mohair-wool blend travels exceptionally well. The retention of the mohair fiber bounces back and minimizes any creasing that occurs whilst traveling. Mohair also breathes really well, keeping you cool or warm, and is therefore extremely versatile.
Simon Spurr
My giving is discretionary, but keeping the business going is not.
Michael Hintze
I live on the other side of Copernicus and Galileo; I can no longer conceive of God as sort of above the sky, looking down and keeping record books.
John Shelby Spong
For me, one of the important things about keeping vocally healthy is warming up and making sure I’m aware where my voice is at, drinking lots of water and getting plenty of sleep, and just taking care of myself with exercise and eating healthy.
Adam Lambert
There is something fundamentally fascinating about the mechanics, I guess, of the human body and where consciousness and mind exist, and what you can do with the mechanics of the body while keeping those intact, and where those two cross over.
Neill Blomkamp
I am proud of Edinburgh’s status as a financial centre, but where is it on the index of global financial centres? Sixty-fourth. Below Hamilton, Casablanca and Mauritius. London, by contrast, is second only to New York. That’s a link worth keeping.
Rory Bremner
I feel like I’m part of a generation of people who are stuck in the past and are really self-absorbed. I mean, we’re actually taking pictures of ourselves and posting them on Facebook, and keeping in touch with people that should have been out of our lives 15 years ago.
Diablo Cody
I always say that keeping abreast of science should never be seen as a chore. It should be something you do naturally. I don’t sit there reading ‘New Scientist,’ putting post-it notes next to ideas.
Alastair Reynolds
I think the best advice came from Drew Barrymore, about always finding love in everything you do and keeping a positive attitude and being thankful.
Bella Thorne
I’m a documentary image maker, still and moving, because keeping the real world on the agenda is really important at a time when we’re increasingly disconnected from parts of the world on whom we depend.
Tim Hetherington
I’m not keeping track, but the record is there for someone to break.
Sammy Sosa
People forget that keeping a band together is hard; man, it’s really hard. All the cliches apply about living in each other’s pockets; of it being a relationship, a marriage, a family.
Dean Wareham
I started keeping track of my pet peeves and so far have counted over 160… but to pick one: muffins. They’re imposters. They think they’re breakfast food, but really, they are just terrible cupcakes.
Aubrey Peeples
Thus have you the way of making Conserves, the way of keeping of them is in Earthen pots.
Nicholas Culpeper
I’m always keeping an eye out for a period piece. I was trained in theatre, so most of the things we did were classical – Shakespeare, Moliere, and Chekhov.
Dagmara Dominczyk
I’m careful about keeping myself fit and thin, or as thin as I can manage.
Ruth Rendell
I am passionate about keeping the human dimension in things. You have to keep the rough edges and the inconsistencies, that’s what makes it interesting. I’ve always striven to be as sloppy as possible.
Jarvis Cocker
I have stopped having goals. If you have many goals, and you don’t reach your goals, it is very upsetting, so I just think of keeping it simple, working hard and going and playing the game. But I know there are going to be very important series for Indian cricket. I will just try my best to be in my fittest form.
Yuvraj Singh
Keeping the Union together, freeing slaves and being assassinated all added up to creating ‘Lincoln the myth.’ He overcame a lot of his own prejudices and became what many would consider the first black man’s president.
Henry Louis Gates
My character’s kind of grown up with Katniss. The beginning of the story, they’re more or less brother and sister than anything. They’re best friends. They’ve been keeping each other alive. It’s a little frustrating, for the character. As the character, not as me.
Liam Hemsworth
I’ve always thought one of the tricks of being an actor for a long time is keeping yourself interested once you’ve figured out how to pay the rent.
Martin Short
I absolutely love the fact that they are looking out for me and it’s not really even just Charles and Dave. Out on the road, I’m one of very few girls out here. There’s a lot of pseudo big brothers who are keeping an eye out on me.
Hillary Scott
Religion is excellent stuff for keeping common people quiet.
Napoleon Bonaparte
Really, for an actor, it’s all about remembering a lot of stuff – and keeping the moustache on.
Martin Clunes
Background checks are an important part of keeping guns out of the wrong hands, but they are only as good as the information in the database.
Roy Cooper
It’s always challenging when you’re shooting a film. Shooting things out of order and keeping continuity on all levels is always for me the most challenging thing.
Amy Adams
I think the black community is no different from any other community. We need to take responsibility for how we live together. We need to be personally responsible for keeping our streets clean, our schools safe, and our houses peaceful.
Pearl Cleage
I feel most comfortable keeping versatile when it comes to music genres.
Thia Megia
Patriotism has served, at different times, as widely different ends as a razor, which ought to be used in keeping your face clean and yet may be used to cut your own throat or that of an innocent person.
Charles Edward Montague
But I am committed to keeping this city a strong and viable center for commerce and industry, for continuing to make it a place of opportunity for its citizens.
Jane Byrne
TV started for me just as a means of keeping my husband Desi off the road. He’d been on tour with his band since he got out of the Army, and we were in our 11th year of marriage and wanted to have children.
Lucille Ball
If governments did not mislead their citizens so often, there would be less need for secrecy, and if leaders knew they could not rely on keeping the public in the dark about what they are doing, they would have a powerful incentive to behave better.
Peter Singer
My wife and I have what’s known as mixed marriage. I am a Methodist, she is a Muslim. So we’re keeping it in the M’s.
Grover Norquist
If I was designing a web site for elementary school children, I might have a much higher percentage of older computers with outdated browsers since keeping up with browser and hardware technology has not traditionally been a strong point of most elementary schools.
Mike Davidson
The reason why I’ve been keeping private for the longest time ever here, I’ve always wanted to protect my wife’s privacy. I don’t like – I didn’t want to put her picture all over the news. I just wanted to keep her private.
Michael Schiavo
Conservation is key to preserving many of the world’s natural beauty spots, so do your best to help by keeping to designated footpaths and being a discerning souvenir collector.
Sheherazade Goldsmith
Since the beginning, HTC has focused on developing strong research and development capabilities and keeping a close eye on consumer, market and technology trends.
Cher Wang
Because Social Security is specifically designed to boost the retirement income of low earners with a progressive benefit formula, the program has played an enormous and necessary role in keeping Latinas out of poverty.
Grace Napolitano
Keeping a guy in prison costs 50,000 bucks a year. Executing one costs a couple million.
John Grisham
Everything I write about either I have gone through or I know somebody has gone through, so it’s very close to me, but sometimes it’s about taking those feelings and exaggerating on them a little bit: being a bit more dramatic but still keeping them relatable.
Tori Kelly
I’ve loved vampires since I was a kid, or loved a lot of the vampire movies that I saw. Anything with sharp teeth, really. I remember you could get those fake vampire teeth, and I remember just keeping them in all the time.
Taika Waititi
When people talked about protecting their privacy when I was growing up, they were talking about protecting it from the government. They talked about unreasonable searches and seizures, about keeping the government out of their bedrooms.
Al Franken
The majority of the film industry is, like, obsessed with a ridiculous gender binary and keeping with this stupid social binary. Like, who cares?
Olly Alexander
College education is the great Filipino dream. But in a world of rapid technological change, getting a job or keeping it depends as much on how well one reasons as how well one uses his hands.
Gloria Macapagal Arroyo
As states subsist in part by keeping their weaknesses from being known, so is it the quiet of families to have their chancery and their parliament within doors, and to compose and determine all emergent differences there.
John Donne
I had already done a lot of research for Rough Riders, keeping notebooks and old photographs. Some of the books were antiques for that time period, with the covers falling off.
Tom Berenger
It’s just about keeping people who are close to me, near. It’s important to have people around who love themselves, are true to themselves, who have their own hobbies and their world doesn’t revolve around Hollywood.
Vanessa Hudgens
The Constitution shall never be construed… to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.
Samuel Adams
I see something different in Hillary Clinton. She wants a trade prosecutor. She’s going after currency. She’s going stand up strong on keeping China designated as a non-market economy.
Sherrod Brown
My father’s money vanished in the Great Depression, and he had trouble keeping a job.
John C. Bogle
But at the same time, I have trouble keeping things out of books, which is why I don’t write short stories because they turn into novels.
Jonathan Coe
That is – the reason for that is that home prices are only going to go up. Now, they’ve never gone down nationwide in our – since we’ve been keeping track of this.
Franklin Raines
Carbohydrates, and especially refined ones like sugar, make you produce lots of extra insulin. I’ve been keeping my intake really low ever since I discovered this. I’ve cut out all starch such as potatoes, noodles, rice, bread and pasta.
Cynthia Kenyon
We need to do a better job of keeping oceans healthy.
Sigourney Weaver
Certainly, network television in general relies a little bit too much on keeping people focused and emotional and scared and pushing the envelope by building wall-to-wall music.
Kevin Bacon
Instead of being just a church that welcomes and receives by keeping the doors open, let us try also to be a church that finds new roads, that is able to step outside itself and go to those who do not attend Mass, to those who have quit or are indifferent.
Pope Francis
Hats off to starting a franchise younger than we all did in ‘Twilight’ and keeping your cool. The ‘Harry Potter’ men and women had, what, a 10-year run?
Kellan Lutz
By keeping most tax rates at present levels, Obama and the Democrats will claim that they have championed tax cuts for the middle class.
John Podhoretz
If being recalled is the price for keeping one’s promises, then so be it.
Russell Pearce
I would passionately make the case that the harder the times, the more we need things that aren’t just about keeping our job and making a buck – important though those things are. Arts programming isn’t some sort of add-on or ornamental luxury.
Simon Schama
The art of acting consists in keeping people from coughing.
Ralph Richardson
I’m a soccer mom. I’m T-ball, soccer, karate, homework, keeping them on their schedules. I love being the snack mom, when I get to bring the cut oranges. I have one of those coolers with wheels. I’m at every game, every practice, sitting on my blanket. I love it.
Pamela Anderson
Being quiet is comfortable. Keeping things the way they’ve been is comfortable. And all comfort has done is maintain the status quo.
Luvvie Ajayi
If producing a regular column is living out loud, then keeping a daily blog is living at the top of your lungs. For a couple of months there, I was shrieking like a banshee.
Ayelet Waldman
I really like keeping my kitchen counters as clear as possible. I tend to function better when there’s less clutter.
Katie Lee
Writing is sometimes a balancing act between keeping things easily readable and being accurate.
Susanna Kearsley
In regards to core training, I try to incorporate the medicine ball whenever possible. As a baseball player, there is a lot of twisting and turning that I will do. Keeping my abs strong is as important as anything else.
Albert Pujols
When we were shooting ‘The Book Thief,’ I was keeping all these journals. And I remember talking to my mom, really trying to verbalize all the experiences I was having. And I remember my mom saying, ‘Ben, reflection is a retroactive process.’ When you’re going through it, that’s the time to just let it wash over you.
Ben Schnetzer
I just think that there are those people that their resolve is strengthened by what it is that’s keeping them down, and there are some people that will buckle under it. You never know which one is which until you get into the eighth or ninth round of the fight.
Ron Perlman
I read my books to writing workshops and friends, and I’m often focussed just on keeping them entertained. I never think about marketing at all.
Karen Joy Fowler
People are always looking at their phones and computer. It’s the first place people turn in the morning and where everyone’s keeping in touch and getting their news.
Theophilus London
There’s actually an awful lot of mathematics that goes into designing a railway, keeping it running, making sure everything runs optimally. Every time you need something to be optimal there’s going to be some mathematics at play.
Hannah Fry
The secret is keeping busy, and loving what you do.
Lionel Hampton
My only vice is ‘Keeping up With The Kardashians.’ I can’t really explain what it is that fascinates me so much, but it just sucks me in.
Gia Coppola
It’s just about keeping the momentum going, and it doesn’t matter whether it’s Champions League or Premier League or whatever trophy you’re going for, you’ve got to focus on the opponent that lies ahead.
Trent Alexander-Arnold
I got a Valentine’s Day card from my girl. It said, ‘Take my heart! Take my arms! Take my lips!’ Which is just like her. Keeping the best part for herself.
Robert Orben
I’m interested in humor, and greeting cards just happen to be a perfect medium for my message. They’re accessible to everyone, and thanks to all the advances that have been made by environmentally conscientious printers, I can get my message across while keeping my carbon footprint relatively small.
Anne Taintor
Medicare’s top officials said in 2006 that they had reduced the number of fraudulent and improper claims paid by the agency, keeping billions of dollars out of the hands of people trying to game the system.
Charles Duhigg
I have to say that it was a thrilling ride to be on ‘Terriers.’ It was this odd circumstance where it was really loved by the people it was loved by, but it didn’t do well. In fairness to FX, they were just so generous in keeping it on the air the whole year.
Donal Logue
Unlike most divorces, where the children were usually the first to know, my parents were very good about keeping that a secret.
Frank Abagnale
I find the experience of keeping a journal much more creative on paper than on a computer. When I write, I’m physically immersed in the world and slow down, whereas on screen, I use my senses in a less engaged way – and I skim more.
Keri Smith
I didn’t end up going bankrupt… I made some great investments and I held on to my money, which also enables me to have the freedom to do what I want now. But it’s not about finances. No matter what, it’s about keeping it real.
Vanilla Ice
There’s a kind of sick security some people get out of keeping away from people with disabilities. They are running away from any situation that’s not totally pure and all-American and that requires them to do any thinking.
Major Owens
That, to me, is what comedy is all about: keeping fresh and keeping current and changing with the times.
Norm Crosby
Success – keeping your mind awake and your desire asleep.
Walter Scott
I always have a notebook with me, I eavesdrop; I write down what people say. It’s very rare that one of those things will provoke a story, but I think that that kind of paying attention all the time, and keeping everything open, lets the stories come in. But where they come from is still a mystery to me.
Kate DiCamillo
The Holy Ghost will testify to our hearts, and the hearts of those gathered around with us, what He would have us do. And it is by keeping His commandments that we can have our hearts knit together as one.
Henry B. Eyring
Costa Rica, with its tourist-based economy and lack of a national army, has focused on keeping safe its beaches, parks and other public draws. It is one if the safest countries in Central America based on the number of homicides.
Laura Chinchilla
I’m good at keeping secrets, but if it’s not something super serious I usually tell people not to tell me because I’ll tell someone else.
Steven Yeun
In and of itself, keeping the country safe for business is not a bad thing.
Peter Schuyler
If I don’t get food in my mouth, I’m still happy. If my pants are round my ankles, as long as I don’t get arrested for indecent exposure, I’m happy. I’m worried about keeping my hair, not how it’s combed.
Michael J. Fox
There is no roles. No one is keeping any roles. The drummer is also answering everybody and everything. So it is a constant conversation and communication between musicians on an extremely high level with extremely valuable material, motifs, and melodies.
Miroslav Vitous
I have learned that keeping my personal life outside of work is the easier, richer way to work.
Jennifer Carpenter
I kicked the door open, and I’m gonna hold my leg in there. I’m keeping the door open for all these amazing female singer-songwriters that are coming out.
Miranda Lambert
Let’s just say I haven’t been keeping up the Gary Barlow persona; I’ve let loose.
Liam Payne
This game, it seems when you play it the best, is when you’re not really thinking a lot and just reacting and keeping it at its simplest point – just see it and hit it.
Jason Giambi
The person who seeks all their applause from outside has their happiness in another’s keeping .
Dale Carnegie
I fully credit my family for keeping me grounded and for putting me back in line whenever necessary.
Camilla Belle
I live in Hollywood. Go three feet and you will run into someone more cut and better looking than me. For me, working out is more about keeping my temperament great. Jujitsu and lifting keep me very even.
Jonathan Lipnicki
No, I like to wear as least amount of makeup as I can during my everyday life because I’m just all about keeping my skin healthy and hydrated and I love to laugh and have a great time and smile – that’s when I feel the most pretty so I just want to make sure that I stay happy.
Lily Collins
I like doing everything. That’s why I came to Pixar, as opposed to Disney or any other studio – it’s small. At the time I started, I was, like, the 10th person in the animation group, and we all had to do everything. That’s the way I like it, keeping it fresh.
Pete Docter
I don’t think Philadelphia’s challenge is in coming up with great ideas or having great founders. I think the real challenge is keeping them here.
Josh Kopelman
My parents had no money, but they had strong values that I’ve carried throughout my life – things like not going into debt, never borrowing money, never leveraging, paying your bills on time, keeping your agreements, selling customers the right things, treating employees right, and growing things.
Jack Dangermond
I enjoy taking part in footballing events that are for social causes because, in my view, inspiring children through sport is a way of keeping their bodies and minds healthy as well as helping nurture their intelligence and ability to relate with others.
Shakira
We have to go to war against the people who enable the gun violence, the people who stop us from keeping guns out of the hands of mentally unstable people, of felons, and that means the NRA leadership.
Jerrold Nadler
I always make a point of keeping the most pleasant-sounding name for the murderer. As he or she is bound to come to an unpleasant end, it seems the very least the author can do.
Ngaio Marsh
My mother’s father taught English literature. When I was about ten or eleven, I could recite Macaulay’s ‘Lays of Ancient Rome.’ While other kids were playing pedestrian war games, I’d be Horatius keeping the bridge.
Bernie Taupin
There aren’t a lot of guys out there keeping it real. Everybody’s been branded. Everybody’s been bought and sold.
Tracy Morgan
I think there’s a responsibility more as an artist to try and push in the direction you think comedy should go… The biggest thing I could do for the art that I love was keeping it art: keeping it special, keeping it honest, keeping it truthful.
Jerrod Carmichael
We are, after all, a nation of laws. And we live in a culture where carrying a form of identification is as normal as keeping your car keys in your pocket. When any of us walk into a grocery store and cashes a check, no one skips a beat when asked to present our driver’s license.
Mike Gallagher
I believe keeping our promises should be our highest priority and that means saving Social Security and Medicare while preserving the American dream for our children and grandchildren.
Tom Coburn
I think that the thing that we learned back in the day of the civil rights movement is that you do have to keep on keeping on.
Charlayne Hunter-Gault
People really do not have time to read all the newspapers in the world and all the sites that we now commonly use on the web. There is no possibility of keeping up.
Felix Dennis
Acting is merely the art of keeping a large group of people from coughing.
Ralph Richardson
The focus of Congress is on keeping the nation secure – and it doesn’t see that food security is an essential part of that responsibility. Instead of putting more food on the tables of America, they are busy finding ways to take it away.
Madeleine M. Kunin
Anyone can make an article longer; the skill is keeping it tight and lean.
Barry Ritholtz
Stardom is just an uneasy seat on top of a tricky toboggan. Being a star is merely perching at the head of the downgrade. A competent featured player can last a lifetime. A star, a year or two. There’s all that agony of finding suitable stories, keeping in character, maintaining illusion.
Fredric March
I thank my mum, dad, and home for keeping me in touch with my own country and my own land. I can be in the studio with Snoop Dogg or singing for Oprah, but I’m still me.
Jessica Mauboy
Even at my biggest, I want to be writing for other artists. Even at my peak – the highest I can be as an artist – I always want to be keeping my creative juices flowing, keeping money in the bank, putting my intellectual property out there.
Keri Hilson
You’ve got to perform in a role hundreds of times. In keeping it fresh one can become a large, madly humming, demented refrigerator.
Ralph Richardson
Rent and the cost of essentials like food and child care are rising so fast that wages are not keeping up.
Kate Brown
Pay-for-procedure or fee-for-service reimbursement rewards doctors and hospitals for volume – not keeping patients healthy or being efficiency. Pay-for-Performance is clearly one tool that can change the incentives to reward quality.
Ron Wyden
Being raised Catholic in a pressure-cooker household besieged by alcohol and bill collectors enforced and heightened a sense of sentry duty in me, the oldest of five children and the one most responsible for keeping everything from capsizing. Wild indulgence was for other people, the non-worriers.
James Wolcott
I don’t want to wreck my voice. I love to concentrate on playing the bass and keeping it very rock-solid. If I were singing, I would have blown out my voice.
Tina Weymouth
As a child who loved to read, I had trouble finding honest stories. I felt that adults were always keeping secrets from me, even in the books I was reading.
Judy Blume
Americans spend 3 billion hours per year filling out tax forms and keeping tax records.
Jim Ramstad
One year, I was a patron of a new opera. It was, to put it kindly, unpleasant to the ear. The friends I went with hated it. Keeping quiet about my contribution, I was outed when one of them, reading the program at the restaurant during dinner, saw my name.
Karen DeCrow
A good lesson in keeping your perspective is: Take your job seriously but don’t take yourself seriously.
Thomas P. O’Neill
Looking at flowers, simple things in life. I don’t need to look at gold and a castle; sometimes its very simple things that are very beautiful. I am keeping my eyes fresh to find beauty in many places, and in gold, too, sometimes!
Francois Nars
Richard Pryor was my hero. Richard Pryor was keeping it 100.
Larry Wilmore
Despite all the dysfunction in Washington, I believe that when it comes to helping veterans and keeping our fundamental promises as a country, we can come together and do the right thing.
John Delaney
Unfaithfulness in the keeping of an appointment is an act of clear dishonesty. You may as well borrow a person’s money as his time.
Horace Mann
The only time you really live fully is from thirty to sixty. The young are slaves to dreams; the old servants of regrets. Only the middle-aged have all their five senses in the keeping of their wits.
Theodore Roosevelt
