Employ oneself upon trifling professional matters which others could do.

I’ve come to a point in my career where it doesn’t matter if I dribble or nutmeg someone. The only thing that matters is whether I was decisive, did I put the ball in the back of the net today, and did it help the team win.
May we agree that private life is irrelevant? Multiple, mixed, ambiguous at best – out of it we try to fashion the crystal clear, the singular, the absolute, and that is what is relevant; that is what matters.
I’m enjoying my life as a fighter, but more as a human and this is what matters.
In no relationship at the top of any walk of life is it always easy, least of all in politics which matters so much and which is conducted in such a piercing spotlight.

Ideas matter. The world matters. Our lives matter, and the choices we make as we navigate our lives perhaps matter most of all.
Once everyone is connected to everyone and everything else, nothing matters anymore. If everyone in the world is your Facebook friend, then why have any Facebook friends at all? We’re back where we started. The ultimate complexity is just another entropy.
You can have financial strength, professional strength, emotional strength but for me without spiritual strength none of the rest of it matters.
Gay, straight, whatever – none of that actually matters when you’re fighting someone. Not what you have in your bank account, what you drive, what sex you are, none of it. I think that’s the message the UFC has been trying to push.
Specifically, the reservation of sovereignty to the people of the states in matters not governed by federal law is constitutionally defined and permanently enshrined in the 10th Amendment.
When you kill somebody in the movies, it matters, whereas in literature it can be allegorical.
The highest compliment one can give a writer is not to say that one wholeheartedly agrees with his observations, but that he provoked – really, forced – difficult thinking about consequential matters and internal questioning of one’s own assumptions, often without quick or clear resolution.
I believe that, in an ideal world, writers would feel free to write what matters to them without having to consider success, failure, the market, etc.

Most of us know nothing about constitutional law, so it’s hardly surprising that we take sides in the Obamacare debate the way we root for the Red Sox or the Yankees. Loyalty to the team is what matters.
I have won the hearts of many. So that matters more than any award. The love of my ‘Nehearts’ – my fans, is more than inspiring and encouraging.
When I become a character in a movie or drama… I can think about the character only and not the complicated matters of my own life.
There is one thing that matters, to set a chime of words tinkling in the minds of a few fastidious people.
The move to tax Internet sales, clothed as a ‘fairness’ issue, is the typical ‘wolf-in-sheep’s-clothing’ ploy so often used by governments unwilling to cut expenditures to match revenues. It matters not whether its proponents have a ‘D’ or an ‘R’ after their name. It is a tax increase in either case.
Success needs no explanation. Failure does not have one that matters.
Life’s like a play: it’s not the length, but the excellence of the acting that matters.
What matters most is your overall way of eating and living.
Social conservatives are very focused on strengthening the family, and I think they are right to do so. One of the worst blind spots of the Left has been its reluctance to say that marriage matters for children.
I think every person should have some faith inside him, in his heart. What matters is not an external display of this faith, but the inner state of the soul.
Theater isn’t there to provide answers. Only possibilities. I just ask the questions. But I believe hope comes from the fact that there is a potential for redemption. At the core, that’s what matters in the theater I’m attracted to. Do we dare to hope? Do we allow ourselves to hope?
If the reader cares, I don’t think it matters so much whether your hero is in fact an anti-hero.
It’s always a pleasure to find something that matters.
The truth is that everyone pays attention to who’s number one at the box office. And none of it matters, because the only thing that really exists is the connection the audience has with a movie.
However, please allow me to say that the fundamental style of my writing has been to start from my personal matters and then to link it up with society, the state and the world.
We have all met people that act ‘old’ or think a number makes them old, and I truly don’t believe that is the case. If you have a good attitude toward aging, and you do what you can to live healthy and take care of yourself, I don’t think the number matters.
I’m happy. I don’t care what other people say or think. I’m happy. I’m blessed. I’m proud of my life, and that’s it. That’s all that matters.
Some people write heavily, some write lightly. I prefer the light approach because I believe there is a great deal of false reverence about. There is too much solemnity and intensity in dealing with sacred matters; too much speaking in holy tones.
We will not change in matters of policy until such time as dialogue has begun.
Aesthetic matters are fundamental for the harmonious development of both society and the individual.
We must study love the way we study anything else that matters.
One would think that in writing about literary men and matters there would be no difficulty in finding a title for one’s essay, or that any embarrassment which might arise would be from excess of material. I find this, however, far from being the case.
I gained a first class degree in Physics at Imperial College London in 1968 and did research in solid state physics, but did not pursue meteorology matters until gaining an M.Sc. in astrophysics from Queen Mary College London in 1981, after which I investigated and attempted to construct theories of solar activity.
I think a good MP is someone who cares for their community and becomes their champion, which is why I will make my home in any seat I am lucky enough to be selected for. Looks play no part in the equation, what matters is your ideas and connecting them to the electorate.
Life is designed to knock you down. It will knock you down time and time again, but it doesn’t matter how many times you fall – it matters how many times you get back up.
The relation between a poet and audience is really insignificant. What matters is the poet is hearing something that he is broadcasting. And whether there is anybody with a receiver isn’t the reason he does it. He hopes there is somebody receiving it.
If matters go badly now, they will not always be so.
Well I’ve already made it clear that it’s a matter for individuals in exercising their own judgement, their own consciences to speak freely on matters of policy.

What matters to me is my own estimation, and I’m very tough on myself. I need to be proud of what I’ve done and I work hard for it. I had a very Christian upbringing… lots of guilt. A good thing, It keeps you sane.
Everybody, not just stars, should take up the responsibility of giving back to society. It doesn’t matter how much you give, but what really matters is if you are willing to give something.
To this day, just always treat people the way you want to be treated. Whether it’s family or friends or co-workers, I think it’s the most important thing. Whether you have success or don’t have it, whether you’re a good person is all that matters.
What matters is hard work, and emotional intelligence.
In matters large and small, many people seemed concerned about churlishness, an ugliness in our relationships that appears to be increasing rather than decreasing.
There are many different kinds of radioactive waste and each has its own half-life so, just to be on the safe side and to simplify matters, I base my calculations on the worst one and that’s plutonium.
Maybe I wanted to have kids because you want to leave behind lessons, leave behind everything that matters to you. That’s how you touch the world. But I have to reconsider what it’s like to leave a legacy.
I think that one of the things that I can do is I seem to have the ability to zoom in super tight for very small details, but then jump back for sort of that big picture perspective. And I think that ultimately, that’s one of my strengths, because you have – every detail matters.
All that matters is that I stay healthy.
As long as we win, that’s all that matters and everything else will take care of itself.

It’s not what people do that matters, it’s why they do it.

I want all the aspiring models out there to know that it’s definitely not just a pretty face that matters!
I have no right, by anything I do or say, to demean a human being in his own eyes. What matters is not what I think of him; it is what he thinks of himself. To undermine a man’s self-respect is a sin.
Young people understand the world. They should be listened to on matters of politics and world organization. But they know nothing of their own lives.
It always matters whether or not you can trust your government.
Daily repetition matters when a kid is learning to swim. It can be 20 minutes in a lesson or an hour practicing for a couple of weeks.

The wisdom of crowds works when the crowd is choosing the price of an ox, when there’s a single numeric average. But if it’s a design or something that matters, the decision is made by committee, and that’s crap. You want people and groups who are able to think thoughts before they share.
To love what you do and feel that it matters how could anything be more fun?
So during those first moments of the day, which are yours and yours alone, you can circumvent these boundaries and concentrate fully on spiritual matters. And this gives you the opportunity to plan the time management of the entire day.
In social matters, pointless conventions are not merely the bee sting of etiquette, but the snake bite of moral order.
But every single damn thing matters! Only we don’t realize. We just tell ourselves that art runs on one track and life, our lives, on another, and we don’t realize that’s a lie.
These are matters of external history. They are indeed prominent objects, often changing and giving a new direction to the current; but they tell us not why it flows onward and will ever flow.

Size matters in fiction, but so does lack of size. Everything else being equal, fat novels tend to be perceived as serious, very thin ones as more honest, more real. Writers address these age-old expectations by filling their big books with philosophy and cramming their little ones with feeling.
One day I decided that I was beautiful, and so I carried out my life as if I was a beautiful girl. I wear colors that I really like, I wear makeup that makes me feel pretty, and it really helps. It doesn’t have anything to do with how the world perceives you. What matters is what you see.
Obama is not only obstructing budget reform; it’s almost as if he is trying to make matters worse.
A surprising number of government committees will make important decisions on fundamental matters with less attention than each individual would give to buying a suit.

Experience is the best teacher of all. And for that, there are no guarantees that one will become an artist. Only the journey matters.
What matters to me is that I do what I think is right and I see, I’m a numbers guy, that’s my attitude. I know we have a debt tsunami coming, we are bankrupting this country and I’m in a position where I can actually advance ideas to prevent that from happening. That’s exactly what I should be doing.
Don’t romanticise your ‘vocation.’ You can either write good sentences or you can’t. There is no ‘writer’s lifestyle.’ All that matters is what you leave on the page.
Unsurprisingly, the poll-takers don’t talk a lot in public about the ignorance of the electorate on political and public policy matters. And the politicians are not going to disclose the, let’s say, limited body of knowledge in their constituencies. You don’t get elected calling your voters airheads.
We have always been a great national party, with views on all the main issues. We recognise that what matters to people most are those things that affect their daily lives: schools, hospitals, transport and law and order and we have plenty to say about them.
We have had a chance to travel to all 56 counties in this state, and I have had the chance to sit around with cups of coffee and having conversations about what matters to Montanans.

First of all, I am not an expert on matters on different economic systems, but in my normal social intercourse with my friends we discussed matters like that.

I kept thinking about it. This could be a cool product that matters and a cool product that has a great business.
Quality isn’t about where the money came from or which company gets to put their name on the thing. What matters is who made the movie and why they made it.
When I go home, its an easy way to be grounded. You learn to realize what truly matters.
I’m a big fan of unflinching drama and bold drama. If you shy away from dark subject matters, there’s only certain places for TV drama to go. If there are shows that can break through that and be brave, those are the shows that I personally enjoy watching. I try and do work that I would watch.
If you think you can sing, you can sing; that’s all that matters.
What matters is discovering myself under the veneer, under the layers that are wrapped around me. There are two ‘yous’; there’s ‘you’, the real you, and then there’s the image.
Certain product categories become less attractive for us because, as they become mature, they become low-cost, and hence, there is less to invent. There is less to invent in a television, whereas in heath technology, there is a lot to invent. So we wanted to put our innovative power to work where it really matters.
These matters having been arranged, I had a temporary awning erected near the river, and was for three or four days busily employed writing an account of our journey for the Governor’s information.
Authenticity matters; and, most importantly, the truth matters.
Architecture is my work, and I’ve spent my whole life at a drawing board, but life is more important than architecture. What matters is to improve human beings.

What matters is that you do great work, and you will definitely be remembered for that for years to come.
Every reiteration of the idea that nothing matters debases the human spirit.
In most matters regarding apparel, I am a big fan of natural fibers – wool, cotton, and so on. Not when it comes to socks. An elastic fiber of some type is necessary.
Tact and diplomacy are fine in international relations, in politics, perhaps even in business; in science only one thing matters, and that is the facts.
Let me create great music, go in the studio, and possibly become a memory and a time stamp in people’s lives – and just give the best performances, because I know that’s all that really matters.
I have a book coming out in September, for example, where the plot concerns counterfeiting, and I had to do a lot of research on that. Or on any legal matters, for example, I have to do a lot of research online.
When you have a kid, money matters.
But I see no reason why a woman should not grow and develop in all those outlets which are suited to her nature, it matters not at all what they may be.

I decided that Europeans and Americans are like men and women: they understand each other worse, and it matters less, than either of them suppose.
I don’t write songs that don’t affect me on some level, because I figure if I am not moved by it, if its not something that I have a longing to celebrate or to be reminded of, if it doesn’t affect me, then how can I possibly think it is going to affect somebody else. My touchstone is write something that matters.
It is also asserted that the election settled the matters of the war and the torture of prisoners. These are dead issues that no longer need be addressed.
It is a sign of a dull nature to occupy oneself deeply in matters that concern the body; for instance, to be over much occupied about exercise, about eating and drinking, about easing oneself, about sexual intercourse.
What really matters to me is what my peers think.
As the CG in motion capture made it look realistic, it put more of an onus on the game makers to make the dialogue they’re saying more realistic. It doesn’t matter what they say when they’re 8-bits, but if they look almost photo-real, it matters. More and more, the games industry is realising that.
What matters is to live in the present, live now, for every moment is now. It is your thoughts and acts of the moment that create your future. The outline of your future path already exists, for you created its pattern by your past.
The summit is what drives us, but the climb itself is what matters.
It is inappropriate to discuss matters of business, pleasure or current events in the temple.
The duty of rhetoric is to deal with such matters as we deliberate upon without arts or systems to guide us, in the hearing of persons who cannot take in at a glance a complicated argument or follow a long chain of reasoning.
The first Elizabeth film was an absolute travesty historically. It really was sloppy. Things like ‘The Other Boleyn Girl’ and ‘The Tudors,’ people’s perception is distorted because of these. It matters to me as a historian, because I spend my life trying to get it right.
If you are lucky enough to be successful, you get drawn further in and you stop paying attention to the stuff that matters.

I see the face of a child. He lives in a great city. He is black. Or he is white. He is Mexican, Italian, Polish. None of that matters. What matters, he’s an American child.
What really matters is that ‘Black Swan’ deploys and exaggerates all the cliches of earlier ballet movies, especially ‘The Red Shoes,’ another tale of a ballerina driven mad and suicidal.
Environmental pollution, terrorism, and many other global threats do not stop at borders. We all bear global responsibility and thus need a global identity to enable us to cope with them. We must learn to integrate different levels of identity in ourselves. What matters is not either/or, but both/and.
My first job was four words in ‘Family Matters.’ It was huge!
Autonomy: the urge to direct our own lives. Mastery: the desire to get better and better at something that matters. Purpose: the yearning to do what we do in the service of something larger than ourselves. These are the building blocks of an entirely new operating system for our businesses.
I don’t think it matters where I came from any more.
You think it matters to the kids whether they’re learning to play on a Steinway or a normal piano?

I prize the conditions under which I have lived because they have permitted me to choose my opportunities, to inquire into such matters as interested me, and to publish what I believed to be true, uncontrolled by any central authority.
Political conflicts distort and disturb a people’s sense of distinction between matters of importance and matters of urgency. What is vital is disguised by what is merely a matter of well being.
I think for voters what matters is the values that drive the government.
I just feel like, with rappers, there’s so much complacency. It’s like, ‘Oh, I’m a rapper. I’m successful. I make money. That’s all that matters.’ But there’s a lot of stuff going on in the world. Whether or not you’re aware of it, it’s happening.
But for their right to judge of the law, and the justice of the law, juries would be no protection to an accused person, even as to matters of fact; for, if the government can dictate to a jury any law whatever, in a criminal case, it can certainly dictate to them the laws of evidence.
When the object that is produced, the photographic image has the ability to make tears come to your eyes; to inspire you to the point where you have to catch your breath, then nothing else matters.
While the intelligence profession oftentimes demands secrecy, it is critically important that there be a full and open discourse on intelligence matters with the appropriate elected representatives of the American people.

My daughter is a good, caring, compassionate person. To me that’s the true meaning of success, even though the marriages didn’t work out. My success with my daughter is all that matters.
The exact time of death, I think, is not something that matters so much at this moment for we will be reliving John Paul’s life for many days and weeks and even years and decades and centuries to come.
Especially where financial matters are concerned, when it comes to dissolving a marriage, any dissembling at all is strictly against the law – on penalty of perjury. You need to disclose fully and factually, which is precisely what the discovery process is all about.
I can’t explain exactly why it lives within me for so long and passionately. But race matters to me; racial equality matters to me, as does gender. There is something about these kinds of social injustices that go to the deep of me.
Culture, what you believe, what you value, how you live matters. Now, as fundamental as these principles are, they may become topics of democratic debates from time to time, so it is today with the enduring institution of marriage. Marriage is a relationship between a man and a woman.
It matters enormously to a successful democratic society like ours that we have three branches of government, each with some independence and some control over the other two. That’s set out in the Constitution.
I think it’s pretty important that you learn how to keep your own scoreboard and how to be focused on what truly matters over the long term.
As in all matters involving love, which has so many different meanings, you find that the feeling that we label ‘love’ is not a simple feeling, it’s a very complex one. Under the heading ‘love’ can come all sorts of rage and desperation.
My relationship with my grandmother has gone from strength to strength. As a shy, younger man it could be harder to talk about weighty matters. It was: ‘This is my grandmother who is the Queen, and these are serious historical subjects.’
Taiwan matters because of its vital role in spreading democracy in East Asia. Taiwan matters because of its strategic importance to promote peace in the Pacific region.
Work is work, but family is for life. That’s what really matters to me.
If the market is left to sort matters out, social injustice will be heightened and suffering in the community will grow with the neglect the market fosters.
From the Buddhist point of view, it is true that emptiness is a characteristic of all of life – if we look carefully at any experience we will find transparency, insubstantiality, with no solid, unchanging core to our experience. But that does not mean that nothing matters.
One of the greatest gifts that God has given us is free will. Even though it’s free, we don’t take advantage of it as much as we could when it comes to matters of the heart.
In the mind of Bill Clinton, political considerations outweigh even life-and-death matters of great concern to his own law-enforcement officials, not to mention the nation.
I don’t ever want to be like a peasant. I want to always be all right. But motivation is fans – not your kids, your mum, none of that. All of that matters, but number one is your fans.
National security always matters, obviously. But the reality is that if you have an open door in your software for the good guys, the bad guys get in there, too.

The claim of the State Socialists, however, that this right would not be exercised in matters pertaining to the individual in the more intimate and private relations of his life is not borne out by the history of governments.

I do believe in God. But you won’t find me visiting temples every now and then. I believe in self-realization. Peace of mind matters a lot to me. What’s the point in doing something just for the sake of it? I’d rather do something I like doing as long as I’m being true to myself.
All lives have triumphs and tragedies, laughter and tears, and mine has been no different. What really matters is whether, after all of that, you remain strong and a comfort to your loved ones. I have tried to meet that test.
We’re trying to fix this with the plan we’ve been floating. Now, the law says the transition ends in 2006 or – and the ‘or’ is the only part that matters – 85 percent of Americans go buy a digital TV.
The Priestly Code preponderates over the rest of the legislation in force, as well as in bulk; in all matters of primary importance it is the normal and final authority.
I’m of those who believe that excesses in all matters are not a good idea, whether it’s formation of bubbles, whether it’s excess in the financial market, whether it’s excess of inequality, it has to be watched, it has to be measured, and it has to be anticipated in terms of consequences.

My dad used to have an expression – ‘It is the lucky person who gets up in the morning, puts both feet on the floor, knows what they are about to do, and thinks it still matters.’
It’s the quality of your relationships that matters.
What family you were born into matters so much more than it did before in a perverse way.
