Maybe Quotes by Brie Larson, Rosalia, Eniola Aluko, Ruth Ozeki, Ina Garten, Alan Stern and many others.
Maybe you’re not perfect, but you’re willing to actually look at yourself and take some kind of accountability. That’s a change. It might not mean that you can turn everything around, but I think there’s something incredibly hopeful about that.
Working with Pharrell was a dream… Collaborations like that are where you come up with sounds that maybe you wouldn’t have found otherwise.
My father was a politician. My grandfather was a politician too, maybe it’s an innate idea of representing people that we have in our family. I won’t go into politics. I think I can provide the voice for the voiceless through law.
Maybe all teenagers feel like they don’t fit in. I never felt like a cool kid. I remember being bullied for being Asian.
The thing about all my food is that everything is a remembered flavor. Maybe it’s something I had as a child or maybe it’s something I had in Milan, but I want it to taste better than you ever thought.
I tend to think of Pluto and its moons as presents sitting under a Christmas tree. They’re wrapped, and from Earth all we can do is look at the boxes to see whether they’re light or heavy, to see if something maybe jiggles a bit inside. We’re seeing intriguing things, but we really don’t know what’s in there.
I have a very large forehead. I have a pronounced skull. Maybe producers think that there is a lot going on up in there.
What I do onstage, there’s maybe .0001 percent of the population that acts like that. I talk like that because it makes me laugh, and because I know a couple of people that talk like that. They’re really that Southern. And they do funny things. I love ’em; they’re awesome. They’re good people.
My thought has always been completion. Maybe you have to rebound better, shoot better, hit free throws, handle the ball, defend better. You have to do all those things in the course of a game.
I have a wonderful psychiatrist that I see maybe once a year, because I don’t need it. It all comes out onstage.
If you drive right, and your big is standing to the right, dish and keep going to their big – you grab an arm, maybe pull – so that they can’t contest. You only get called for it once in a while.
There’s a time and place for everything, but as I get older, I like finding those human moments and really connecting. Maybe I’m not as cool as I once was.
Maybe I’ll be 48 and die in the gutter in Paris.
Women tend to be more intuitive, or to admit to being intuitive, and maybe the hard science approach isn’t so attractive. The way that science is taught is very cold. I would never have become a scientist if I had been taught like that.
The Mariel boatlift was probably one of the most strengthening events of the exile community; maybe Nietzschean, in the sense that if it doesn’t kill you, it makes you stronger.
We’re at maybe 1% of what is possible. Despite the faster change, we’re still moving slow relative to the opportunities we have. I think a lot of that is because of the negativity… Every story I read is Google vs someone else. That’s boring. We should be focusing on building the things that don’t exist.
I love Britain. I’d like to work there. Maybe a BBC crime show; I love those. A thriller would be something different.
In sport, there is always room for improvement. Whenever I see my innings against the West Indies or Australia, I think, ‘Maybe, I could have done this better or should have changed that.’ See, cricket is a skill game, and one can always improve upon the impact one has on an innings.
I feel I’ve done everything late in life. Got married late, and I didn’t do my first movie until I was 31. But in this crazy business, you never know what’s going to happen. Maybe after 20 years of making movies I’ll become an overnight sensation.
Look, I do not control alpinism. But maybe I was too successful. Many in the mountaineering scene – journalists, second-rate climbers, lecturers, so-called historians – had a problem with me for many years.
If you want to make pictures and enjoy making them, you better go out and make something that a lot of people want to see. And then they’ll turn you lose and let you make what you want. And then maybe you can do some of the things that you want to do. But as a beginner, you haven’t got a chance.
We try to make our own BTS context. Maybe it’s risky to bring some inspiration from novels from so long ago, but I think it paid off more. It comes through like a gift box for our fans. That’s something you can’t find easily from American artists.
It’s very interesting, the joke comes first and then the wording comes within five seconds, maybe ten seconds. My thing is to get the joke across in as few words as possible. However, sometimes a word that’s not really needed does help the rhythm of it. It’s a gut feeling.
The hardest thing about being in this business is just being able to be yourself. People act like there’s this one set of rules to follow to be a pop star and I think, ‘Well, you say I’m a pop star, so maybe that’s not true.’
When I used to play nightclubs, you had to play Top 40 or favorite oldies that maybe people could relate to.
My mom decided that she wanted to put the mirror ball trophy on the coffee table in the center of our living room. When people walk in, it’s kind of like, ‘Uh.’ It’s a little weird. Maybe we should put it in the corner or something.
Maybe a thing that you do not like is really in your interest. It is possible that a thing that you may desire may be against your interest.
I go to Montreal a lot – maybe twice a year.
My week is full-tilt boogie. I wake up every morning, and the singular thought in my head is that maybe today is the day that I’m going to find an artist who is so amazing, an artist who will change pop culture. I’m in hot pursuit, always.
Well, I don’t think we should go to the moon. I think we maybe should send some politicians up there.
Three, maybe four times a week, I run for 30 minutes. If I don’t run, I’m out for a brisk walk at least an hour every day.
Maybe humans are just the pet alligators that God flushed down the toilet.
Eric Bischoff is a total, complete idiot, maybe the single stupidest idiot that ever got into wrestling.
My fantasy breakfast is just a really good egg scramble. Maybe I’ll add a little feta, so, uh, obviously not totally dairy-free. Definitely some vegetables, maybe some really nice tortillas; something to make it like a Mexican-style breakfast. I just really love breakfast.
A doctor can save maybe a few hundred lives in a lifetime. A researcher can save the whole world.
It’s weird. You find a safe place in someone who you feel like maybe they can’t judge you because they don’t know you.
Maybe I’m just a psycho, and the stage is a better place to go than either the loony bin or somewhere else.
I don’t desire happiness. I think it’s a myth, and I don’t think it’s… and it makes you complacent. I feel very satisfyingly uncomfortable. I have the freedom to feel uncomfortable in the way I want to, is maybe a way to put it.
I think people should be allowed to do anything they want. We haven’t tried that for a while. Maybe this time it’ll work.
I’m very comfortable with the nature of life and death, and that we come to an end. What’s most difficult to imagine is that those dreams and early yearnings and desires of childhood and adolescence will also disappear. But who knows? Maybe you become part of the eternal whatever.
The list of what I want to do is so long, I would need a few lifetimes to achieve them. For instance, I would like to fly small planes, maybe over the Ganges one day.
Maybe the key aspect of imposing fear to the opposition is to make them understand that we have no fear.
I was easygoing in terms of being adaptable in my social life. But maybe I suffered a personality change in the mid-’60s and became more dedicated to things involving work because it had become successful in some way.
I can’t remember how old I was, maybe 13, 14, and to see these fellows and hear their stories and to see life come to such a drab ending – my God, a poorhouse in those days was something. You would have to be inert not to respond to it.
Katy Perry is the sexiest woman I’ve ever kissed. It was amazing and very purple – she had purple lipstick on. I don’t think there will ever be anything cooler than kissing her… until I marry her maybe!
I think chess players are not always what you think them to be. Or maybe it’s our job to appear serious.
What’s it like being opposite Arnold Schwarzenegger? For me? Are you kidding? Maybe if I’m lucky, come up to his navel!
For me, I kind of just follow my passions and follow what I love to do and use my free time to kind of answer those questions and go through my bad moods and maybe a little light case of depression.
We’re just into toys, whether it’s motorcycles or race cars or computers. I’ve got the Palm Pilot right here with me, I’ve got the world’s smallest phone. Maybe it’s just because I’m still a big little kid and I just love toys, you know?
You take a number of small steps which you believe are right, thinking maybe tomorrow somebody will treat this as a dangerous provocation. And then you wait. If there is no reaction, you take another step: courage is only an accumulation of small steps.
Beauty lasts five minutes. Maybe longer if you have a good plastic surgeon.
A line will take us hours maybe; Yet if it does not seem a moment’s thought, our stitching and unstitching has been naught.
Like my mother, I was always saying, ‘I’ll fix my life one day.’ It became clear when I saw her die without fulfilling her dreams that my time was now or maybe never.
There is a fascination with the idea that one has ‘seen someone else do something’ before one can achieve it. Maybe that’s true in some cases, but clearly it is not a requirement. I knew what I wanted to do.
Maybe women get to a certain age and they no longer have a filter; they’re considered crazy people or something.
I think there is a dissonance between how much is expected of you as a young person, whether you are a man or a woman: you are supposed to go to university; you get a master’s degree, maybe two, particularly if you come from the middle class.
I think we felt like we’d done so much as young kids that we didn’t know how to top ourselves. We were like, ‘Is this where it ends? Is this as good as it gets? Maybe we’re done. Throw in the towel.’
I feel like my style’s always been influenced by ‘less is more.’ The coolest styles are kind of simple and classic, like a white T-shirt and jeans. Maybe you have a cool belt and cool shoes, but everything else you keep simple.
Richard Nixon had a kind of Walter Mitty fantasy life. He was a man with a grandiose thoughts: dreams of not simply being president but maybe becoming one of the truly great presidents of American history.
The crazy thing about me, man, I feel like I’m a normal guy. But, maybe I’m a little abnormal when it comes to talent or something.
I’m just kind of odd. There are dark forces in the world, and if you pay attention to what’s going on around you, you end up incorporating it into the storytelling. Maybe it’s some aspect of myself that’s coming through that people are seeing, that I am in fact a quiet psycho.
Our schools should get five years to get back to where they were in 1963. If they’re still bad maybe we should declare educational bankruptcy, give the people their money and let them educate themselves and start their own schools.
Maybe all one can do is hope to end up with the right regrets.
Icon. What is an icon? When someone is iconic it means they have established a certain kind of legacy possibly, and I think it does come with time. It’s something in the arts, I feel. Maybe not, maybe it doesn’t have to be in the arts exactly. I’m not really sure. But I don’t think you are born an icon.
We are in a position of financial and social power, and we could be agents of change in our society. Without pretension, I believe we could be a nice little gardener who takes care of the garden, and hopefully our neighbor will do the same. Then, maybe we’ll achieve a better world.
And maybe I’m a little smarter now than I was before for all the stupid things I’ve done.
We don’t really make bad records, though some people might like some more than others. And we have never really done a bad show. So I think in a way maybe we’ve been taken for granted.
I try to do something the audience might not have seen before. Like if I’m gonna kiss a girl I wanna kiss her like a girl has never been kissed. Like maybe I would kick her legs out from under her and catch her right before she hits the ground and then kiss her.
Acting never was about the money for me… Maybe in 10 years, I’ll be able to appreciate the fact that I am financially stable and independent and I don’t have to make bad choices. I can be very picky.
I know for myself, and maybe I’m weird or whatever, but the whole thing is about constantly redefining identity.
Maybe the ones burning my jersey were never LeBron fans anyway.
I have found life an enjoyable, enchanting, active, and sometime terrifying experience, and I’ve enjoyed it completely. A lament in one ear, maybe, but always a song in the other.
I don’t like flirting, and when I love someone, I always give everything, maybe too much. And then you have to work at it all the time. I mean, the first months are always great, but afterwards it becomes hard work. It’s not as passionate and crazy.
I have always said that everyone is in sales. Maybe you don’t hold the title of salesperson, but if the business you are in requires you to deal with people, you, my friend, are in sales.
Can anyone seriously imagine a society without stable families? Maybe we should raise all the kids in state orphanages.
I really love Robert Duvall, who I think is maybe the best American actor. I love Robert Duvall because the ability that he has to change and do the most amazing work.
Can you say that in 20 years people would still use the iPhone? Maybe not. Maybe we’d have a new product or something more innovative. What I can say today is that, in 20 years, I’m quite convinced that people will still drink Dom Perignon.
Theater is, of course, a reflection of life. Maybe we have to improve life before we can hope to improve theater.
I’m a radical environmentalist; I think the sooner we asphyxiate in our own filth, the better. The world will do better without us. Maybe some fuzzy animals will go with us, but there’ll be plenty of other animals, and they’ll be back.
Maybe this world is another planet’s hell.
Best thing that’s happened this year? Maybe Hostel. It was a great experience. I loved it.
Sometimes it’s easy to see the negative side of things or question why people bully you. You could think, ‘Maybe they’re right. Maybe I’m not worth it. Maybe I should just quit.’ But that’s when you should fight the hardest. Now I don’t mean fight physically, but mentally. Keep being you.
I’m afraid of everything. But maybe when you’re afraid of everything, it sort of seems like you’re scared of nothing.
I don’t like the idea that in music, clothes, taste or anything, we are limited to a certain style, because we need to maintain an identity, maybe between some subculture group. Hopefully, all those walls break down, and music is just music.
‘ Shoes’ is very pink and yellow, and maybe orange, very bright, whereas ‘Midnight Moonlight’ is purple and blue and – I don’t know – gray.
Honestly, maybe I’m not as skinny as I’ve been at some point in my life, but I like how I look! You look at Beyonce, at Rihanna, at Jennifer Lopez and they have curves you can grab onto.
My whole damn family was nice. I don’t think I’ve imagined it. It’s true. Maybe it has to do with being brought up as Christian Scientists. Half of my relatives were Readers or Practitioners in the church.
When I was very small, maybe 8 years old, we had a big radio that stood on four legs, and it had a cross piece underneath it, and I used to take a pillow and crawl under the radio.
Ill give you a definite maybe.
In general, a writer would like to think that the best book that he has written is the book that he is writing, and the next book will be even better. Maybe if this is not true, it is very useful to keep the illusion alive.
We would never accept a prime minister saying, ‘Well, maybe I’ll intervene and use a trade issue as a link to an independent investigation into criminal activity.’
Better that you should take the chance of trying something that is close to your heart, you think is what you want to write, and if they do not publish it, put it in your drawer. But maybe another day will come and you will find a place to put that.
I think I got an Instamatic camera when I was 8 years old, and ever since then, I’ve liked to record things. I don’t know why. Maybe it’s just to kind of try to leave some kind of record behind.
I’ve never had a bank account in Switzerland since 1984. Why would the Swiss do this to me? Maybe the Swiss are trying to divert attention from the Holocaust gold scandal.
I’m not an optimist. I’m a realist. And my reality is that we live in a multifaceted, multicultural world. And maybe once we stop labeling ourselves, then maybe everyone else will.
And I don’t think that government has a role in telling people how to live their lives. Maybe a minister does, maybe your belief in God does, maybe there’s another set of moral codes, but I don’t think government has a role.
A month before I booked ‘This Is Us,’ I was like, ‘Maybe I should move to Montreal and work in a coffee shop.’
When George W. Bush came into office, North Korea had maybe one nuclear weapon and verifiably wasn’t producing any more.
When I get up there, maybe I’m nervous for the first song, but then I get into it. It’s a lot of fun to stand up there. I always enjoy the moment when I’m actually standing on stage. When I’m done, I’m like, ‘Oh, I want to play one more song.’
At the end of the day, if you’re not spanking your child and instilling in them the ideas of selflessness, servitude, and wisdom, you’re probably looking at a future P. Diddy in the making (maybe even a Keith Olbermann – take your pick).
I had a friend who was a plastic surgeon, so he would do little things. I never had, like, a full thing. So I would go in maybe once every two or three years, and he’d do a little here, a little there; tweak you, like you tweak your car. Then I became the plastic surgery poster girl.
My characters are always unlucky in love. It’s annoying, but perhaps there is something in me that is suited to characters that have a darkness. Maybe it’s why I play such damaged people when I’m not particularly damaged myself, I would say.
Some guys, first pitch of the at-bat gets called a strike – maybe it’s a ball off or below their knees, and it gets called a strike – and then the next two pitches, they swing at balls in the dirt, and all of a sudden, they’re yelling at the umpire about that first pitch. You just swung at two balls in the dirt, buddy.
Maybe life is random, but I doubt it.
Maybe we could think of science as being like a nuclear chain reaction in which people and ideas bounce off each other, and if critical mass is reached, a new field is formed.
If a man is truly in love, the most beautiful woman in the world couldn’t take him away. Maybe for a few days, but not forever.
If you strive for the moon, maybe you’ll get over the fence.
If I had three pancakes in the morning I’d be like, Oh, I feel a little full, did I eat too much? Maybe I ate too much, I don’t feel perfect, what’s going on?’ It just snowballs.
I have the most openness about my art… It’s total freedom and willingness to work. I’m willing really to walk on the edge, and if I haven’t achieved it, that’s where I want to go. But in my life – maybe because my life has been so traumatic, so absurd – there hasn’t been one normal, happy thing.
Once I’m committed to a role, I will go very deep into it, even when I’m not at work. I’ll keep on studying the script, maybe 40 or 50 times. I might call a scriptwriter at three in the morning to say I’ve thought of something new.
If I had my career over again? Maybe I’d say to myself, speed it up a little.
You know, if you need 100 rounds to kill a deer, maybe hunting isn’t your sport.
I realized that acting was the thing I was still maybe the best at. Of the things I felt like I was good at, that was the thing that came the most naturally to me.
Maybe we ought to consider a Golden Rule in foreign policy: Don’t do to other nations what we don’t want happening to us. We endlessly bomb these countries and then we wonder why they get upset with us?
People will now go to films with subtitles, you know. They’re not afraid of them. It’s one of the upsides of text-messaging and e-mail. Maybe the only good thing to come of it.
I discovered that I act because I really love to act. I don’t act because maybe it will get me a magazine cover or that I can get on a talk show.
Deep Purple is a damn good band and we’ve made a niche in rock ‘n’ roll history. Maybe not a huge one but enough to be very proud of.
Angus has had a few swings at me, maybe two or three times in our whole career. But then it’s done, and it’s not gonna drag on, because it’s not worth it. We have to stick together. And we know that.
I am okay being friends with an ex. You don’t become enemies. Everybody has their own journey and they leave when the time is over. Maybe, they are only meant to be with you for that particular time.
I suffered from low self-esteem for much of my life. And now to feel like maybe something that I’m projecting or saying could mean something to someone means a lot to me.
Maybe the bike is more dangerous, but the passion for the car for me is second to the bike.
Being Mormon is a big part of who I am, and I try very hard to live the right way, but I don’t know that I’m an example. I hate to say, ‘Yes, look at me. I’m a good example of being Mormon.’ I want to be the best person I can be, so in that aspect, maybe I’m a good example.
Maybe the press in Spain do not like me because I do not give interviews.
The corporate woman has been defined as the ‘liberated woman’ and I see that as the exact opposite. I think she now is more enslaved, maybe even more than the housewife was; because she’s so out of her power, and imitating male power is not female power.
People don’t understand that it was maybe my biggest pleasure to drive an F1 car when it’s wet.
There are people who appear in the magazines and I don’t know who they are. I’ve never seen anything they’ve done and their careers are over already. They’re famous for maybe 10 minutes. Real careers, I think, take a long time to unfold.
President Obama came to visit me in the hospital. He said, ‘I wish you were still in the Senate; I need your help.’ I’m not certain I can help on everything. Maybe some things.
Protein, we keep being told, is the vital nutrient that will give us a boost. It will burn fat, build muscle, reduce tiredness and kill our hunger pangs. Maybe if we shake enough protein powder into our daily smoothie, we will actually morph into Gwyneth Paltrow.
Self-awareness is a trait – or maybe ‘practice’ is the more accurate way to put it – that everyone can always improve at. It is part emotional intelligence, part perceptiveness, part critical thinking. It means knowing your weaknesses, of course, but it also means knowing your strengths and what motivates you.
You have to tell the whole truth, the good and the bad, maybe some things that are uncomfortable for some people.
People say, ‘Well, why don’t they get another job, why don’t they pick themselves up by their bootstraps?’ Well, the people that say that probably have the kind of jobs where they don’t work that hard, so maybe they could have another job.
I would say that molecular gastronomy is a field of science. I would – I would say that it’s probably lumped under chemistry, maybe. Because cooking, while it has certainly biology and some physics, it’s mostly chemistry.
I am preppy, geek-chic with a touch of Bozo the Clown with a touch of ‘Showgirls.’ Sometimes, I look at myself and think I should put on a red nose, white face and maybe entertain some kids.
It’s inevitable now, because everyone is a superstar, even if they’re just an average player, and maybe that was part of the process set in motion when I signed that contract in 1994.
One thing I’ve done in my life is train year-round to compete at anything, anything. I’ve got an invitation now to maybe be on the karate team for the Barcelona Olympics. I’m debating whether I want to do that. I just love to compete, and I want to win.
What I’ve said before, only half in joke, is that everybody in Ireland is famous. Or, maybe better, say everybody is familiar.
I had good coaches and mentors. They helped me a lot, and I trusted them when they tapped on my shoulder to move to the next level. And maybe I’ve been smart enough to always say yes more than no when I’ve been proposed a new and challenging jobs.
My style is pretty clean, classic, and elegant, with some elements to make it a little funkier. If you see me on a normal day, I’m usually in a T-shirt and jeans, maybe with some cool sneakers, but I’m pretty basic.
A great day in New York would be to wake up, get a cup of coffee and head up to Central Park for a nice walk. Then I’d go down to the East Village and stroll around. After that, maybe I’d go check out a museum or catch an indie film at the Angelika.
I do feel even though now I’m acting, I still feel like I’m going to do a lot of other things, like write a book or multiple books, maybe a children’s book – just random things that I feel like I want to do, that I have an urge to do in that moment.
If you have something that you don’t want anyone to know, maybe you shouldn’t be doing it in the first place.
I don’t dwell on success. Maybe that’s one reason I’m successful.
I wash my hair maybe once every four or five months. But whenever I touch my hair, I wash my hands. I think since I wash my hands a lot and then touch my hair, maybe I’m washing my hair each time. But also, I sweat a lot, and sweat is like a natural shower built into your body.
Because of what’s going on with the economy, I think women are realizing that maybe they don’t need a closet full of clothes. They just need the right clothes.
It had never occurred to me before that music and thinking are so much alike. In fact you could say music is another way of thinking, or maybe thinking is another kind of music.
At home, I am a private person, and I like keeping it that way. Maybe that is why I come out as being guarded about my personal life.
Maybe I was accepted to Harvard only because of my tennis skills, since I definitively had no great academic achievements. I was 17 and only thought about surfing and playing tennis. I had almost never left Rio de Janeiro and had never been to the United States.
I think my favorite movie is ‘Joe Versus the Volcano’ – or maybe ‘Multiple Maniacs’ by John Waters.
Maybe love is just about finding the person you can be your weird self with.
I was 16. In the middle of the night, I took a taxi to the Detroit train station – or maybe it was the Pontiac train station? – and got on a train to Chicago, then transferred to a train to San Diego where my boyfriend was living at the time.
I wanna do a song with Adele! Nobody gets Adele as a feature, so maybe I can. I hope she knows who I am!
I saw the Kino print of ‘The Man From Beyond,’ but apparently a superior new print has been produced by Restored Serials. Maybe a few snippets of missing footage will close up some of the plot holes, but I have my doubts.
I’m just tired of the unethical people, the scumbags, all that. Maybe that’s how all businesses are run, but in MMA, I’ve been in the UFC, Legacy, and Bellator. The UFC was the best, and even they didn’t treat you that well.
When I read things like the foundations of capitalism are shattering, I’m like, maybe we need that. Maybe we need some time where we’re walking around with a donkey with pots clanging on the sides.
If you help a chicken out of an egg, most of the time that bird will die. If you help a moth out of a cocoon, it’ll die because they don’t go through that struggle and maturation. I can give you a fish for the day and you’ll eat a day, but if I teach you to fish, you’ll eat for a lifetime. Maybe even start a business.
Maybe the Dalai Lama is the only person who is totally honest, and even with him, he’s skillful not to hurt anybody. He’s skillful.
I’m either thought of as ethereal or fiery. And maybe that’s the interesting thing about red hair: there’s that fiery Renaissance connotation and the ethereal.
I was always interested in maybe being in Formula E as I said many times when I was still racing in F1.
When I was four, I just wanted to drive, I collected toy cars. Where does that sort of thing come from? In hindsight you go, ‘Oh, liked it because of this.’ Maybe it’s just the wheel.
When I design and wonder what the point is, I think of someone having a bad time in their life. Maybe they are sad and they wake up and put on something I have made and it makes them feel just a bit better. So, in that sense, fashion is a little help in the life of a person. But only a little.
I don’t know about a lot of things. I read a lot, but a lot of it just passes through me. I don’t retain much. I am kind of dumb that way. Or maybe ‘I am a simple man,’ is a better way to say it.
I have probably purchased fifty ‘hot tips’ in my career, maybe even more. When I put them all together, I know I am a net loser.
I have many regrets, and I’m sure everyone does. The stupid things you do, you regret… if you have any sense, and if you don’t regret them, maybe you’re stupid.
For me, comedy starts as a spew, a kind of explosion, and then you sculpt it from there, if at all. It comes out of a deeper, darker side. Maybe it comes from anger, because I’m outraged by cruel absurdities, the hypocrisy that exists everywhere, even within yourself, where it’s hardest to see.
We can’t keep thinking in a limited way about what cinema is. We still don’t know what cinema is. Maybe cinema could only really apply to the past or the first 100 years, when people actually went to a theater to see a film, you see?
Some people say video games rot your brain, but I think they work different muscles that maybe you don’t normally use.
I don’t know what I would have done without believing in God. His support gives me power and energy to continue to be optimistic, to smile, not to be depressed. Sometimes, if things are not going so well, I don’t cry. I say maybe it’s meant to be.
I decide my future. I decide what I want to do. Nobody else. If I decide this will be my last year, maybe it is. If I decide it will be my last contract, I decide that. Nobody else. So I will decide when the moment is there.
I know Vince made the call for Roman Reigns to win the Royal Rumble and be the guy. We know that much. I don’t know what knucklehead didn’t say to Vince that maybe we shouldn’t put Daniel Bryan in the Royal Rumble.
Focus on your problem zones, your strength, your energy, your flexibility and all the rest. Maybe your chest is flabby or your hips or waist need toning. Also, you should change your program every thirty days. That’s the key.
I realize I love crazy ladies. Of course I don’t like to think of myself as one, but maybe I am, too. I dunno. I’m always drawn to them; I think it’s because I’m attracted to people who aren’t in the business of people-pleasing: saying what they really think, not passive-aggressive at all.
If I give you the right conditions to work, and I put you in a beautiful place, where you feel a little bit better about yourself because you know your work is being used for something greater than producing a profit, maybe you will get more creative; maybe you will want to work more.
I didn’t want to be a comedian. I wanted to be an actor – maybe a comic actor, but a real actor – by real, I mean not a comedian. I wanted to be an actor.
Even as a pro, I still get a lot of advice from friends and family, like ‘maybe you should shoot the ball more often,’ ‘you have to look for yourself more’ and other things like that.
When I was 14 or 15, I was a really good volleyball player, so I thought, ‘Well, maybe I’ll just get a scholarship to an Ivy League school through volleyball.’ Then I quit when I decided to focus on theater.
In the future, maybe quantum mechanics will teach us something equally chilling about exactly how we exist from moment to moment of what we like to think of as time.
We’re all caught up in circumstances, and we’re all good and evil. When you’re really hungry, for instance, you’ll do anything to survive. I think the most evil thing – well, maybe that’s too strong – but certainly a very evil thing is judgment, the sin of ignorance.
Maybe I don’t have the most common kind of motor neuron disease, which usually kills in two or three years.
My family comes first. Maybe that’s what makes me different from other guys.
A young Brit girl with no theatre experience decided to take on an iconic American role on Broadway. Maybe I should have thought that through?
When it all boils down, it’s about embracing each others’ stories and maybe even finding that synergy to collaborate for the common good.
We don’t really go in for big family dinners, but Scottish people are famously confrontational. It’s a cultural thing, so maybe we don’t need to have them to clear the air. Also, traditional family food isn’t as nice here so there’s no payoff for traveling hundreds of miles.
We’ll sort of get over the marriage first and then maybe look at the kids. But obviously we want a family so we’ll have to start thinking about that.
Basically, at the very bottom of life, which seduces us all, there is only absurdity, and more absurdity. And maybe that’s what gives us our joy for living, because the only thing that can defeat absurdity is lucidity.
You have to sound sad first of all, then maybe later you can sound good.
We need people who dream impossible things, who maybe fail, sometimes succeed, but in any case who have that ambition.
I maybe had a first love and had my heart broken, but reflecting on it, I don’t think that was love. I think as I’m getting older and having more in-depth relationships, maybe I’ll experience it. At the moment, I don’t know, exactly, if I’ve been in love.
I had a lot of conversations with my family, my close friends, with my pastor, with God, and kind of came to a revelation that maybe I should be honest with myself about who I am and let that person – this woman who has lived inside me for my entire life – finally have an opportunity to live.
One of the great things to pretend is that you’re not only alright, you’re in great shape. Now to have that come true – I’ve actually gone on stage depressed and that’s worked its magic on me, ’cause if I can convince you that I’m alright, then maybe I can convince me.
I have two sisters and a mother, obviously, so I grew up with a household of girls. Maybe I have a greater respect for women because of it.
Everything I buy is vintage and smells funny. Maybe that’s why I don’t have a boyfriend.
I would love having Winnie-the-Pooh stay here at the house. We could talk of food and what we were eating next. Maybe ponder that over a little morsel… and then take a little nap and dream of desserts.
At 19, you’re not really thinking about the habits you have. I wasn’t. Maybe your study habits? But not your life habits.
If I get the forty additional years statisticians say are likely coming to me, I could fit in at least one, maybe two new lifetimes. Sad that only one of those lifetimes can include being the mother of young children.
Sometimes you climb the mountain, and you fall and fail. Maybe there is a different path that will take you up. Sometimes a different mountain.
I was eccentric, even as a kid. I was an early reader, an early talker. I was very curious in a way that maybe the other kids weren’t. I was a little more outgoing.
You don’t quit because you happen to be behind. You want to see how you do. And who knows? Maybe somebody will stumble.
The whole idea of a stereotype is to simplify. Instead of going through the problem of all this great diversity – that it’s this or maybe that – you have just one large statement; it is this.
You know, maybe I was just born in the wrong time, but I love all things romantic. Puffy understands that. For my last birthday, he covered my hotel room floor with rose petals and had flowers and candles all over the room.
Maybe I’m not a great man but I damn well want to break the record.
I had the idea that it would be wonderful to be a physicist or a mathematician maybe 500 years ago around the time of Newton when there were really fundamental things just lying around to be discovered.
In Rwanda that genocide happened because the international community and the Security Council refused to give, again, another 5000 troops which would have cost, I don’t know, maybe fifty, a hundred, million dollars.
I have no illusions of the future. Or maybe it’s all illusion. I don’t know. I’ve always been ready for it.
I also use women as a sex object; maybe I’m kinky. However, I like to talk to them as well.
A chef is a mixture maybe of artistry and craft. You have to learn the craft really to get there.
I’m a football guy at heart; maybe I should have played football for a living instead, because I play a lot of football videogames; I’m really into them.
I don’t know what else you could do that is more vulnerable – maybe dancing – than singing.
‘Moonlight’ changed me. To see people so moved by this movie inspires me to find something else to offer. And maybe the next one touches only five people or maybe just one person. To me, you know, that would still be worth it.
The best thing about the Kentucky Derby is that it is only two minutes long. It is the quickest event in sports, except for Sumo-wrestling & Mike Tyson fights. Maybe Drag-racing is quicker, but I have never been attracted to it.
A guy and a girl can be just friends, but at one point or another, they will fall for each other… maybe temporarily, maybe at the wrong time, maybe too late, or maybe forever.
Cancer has taught me a lot of things. Maybe it is the best thing that has happened to me. I can’t say right now, but maybe some years down the line, I would realise. When I was taking chemotherapy, there were a lot of elderly patients, and that would inspire me. I thought, ‘If they can be cured, why can’t I be?’
All my money is in a savings account. My dad has explained the stock market to me maybe 75 times. I still don’t understand it.
You go through spells where you feel that maybe you’re too sensitive for this world. I certainly felt that.
The media likes me because I give honest answers. How many people in football give honest answers? I don’t lie. Always the truth. OK, maybe my truth. But it is the truth.
Imagine if Beethoven had a tape recorder. Then you’d know exactly what he meant. Maybe he meant ‘Da da da da’ instead of ‘Boom boom boom boom!’ Who knows?
I like the way black looks. I think I look better in darker clothes. And maybe the fact that I wear black so much makes me more aware of putting people at ease. The black is sort of the bad-guy guise, so I work overtime to make people comfortable.
I think I was afraid of being a mother for many reasons. I wanted to be a good mom, and I was fearful at one point of even working at the national level because I was afraid that I would disappoint a child or I wouldn’t be as ready for a big position as maybe I should have been when I came to Fox.
‘Wild at Heart’ created a set of expectations maybe, partly, on my part, certainly on my publisher’s part, but also in the world out there, that my next books would be as remarkable.
I always start my campaigns early, and I run hard. Maybe it comes from the rough-and-tumble world of San Francisco politics, where it’s not even a contact sport – it’s a blood sport. This is how I am as a candidate. This is how I run campaigns.
You reach the top of the heap, but it’s a circle, and you slip on the down side, maybe for years. You get scared.
There was a darkness, a melancholy, that people had trouble accepting. Maybe now, it would work better.
You have to really stretch your imagination to infer what the intrinsic value of Bitcoin is. I haven’t been able to do it. Maybe somebody else can.
Crystals grew inside rock like arithmetic flowers. They lengthened and spread, added plane to plane in an awed and perfect obedience to an absolute geometry that even stones – maybe only the stones – understood.
I shall think of Freddie Mercury every day – maybe for a moment, maybe for longer.
Distance not only gives nostalgia, but perspective, and maybe objectivity.
You may not have any extra talent, but maybe you are just paying more attention to what you are doing.
Maybe the word they should use instead of Motivated Penn is Prepared Penn.
I’m not really conservative. I’m conservative on certain things. I believe in less government. I believe in fiscal responsibility and all those things that maybe Republicans used to believe in but don’t any more.
Cosmologists have attempted to account for the day-to-day laws you find in textbooks in terms of fundamental ‘superlaws,’ but the superlaws themselves must still be accepted as brute facts. So maybe the ultimate laws of nature will always be off-limits to science.
The problem is there’s still a big kid inside me who likes to have fun. I am passionate about my cricket and I love my family, but I’m also a kid and maybe I need to grow up… And maybe I don’t.
I’m on the air five hours, and I blurt out anything in my head. Dangerous? Maybe.
I always feel like I have to keep going. You can sit back and say, ‘Maybe I can stop.’ But then you’re yesterday, and I love tomorrow.
Trump does magic. Maybe it will be black magic sometime, but he’s an amazing phenomenon.
To me, writing is remembering something funny that happened, or maybe something I said seven years ago.
There is no medicine maybe for everything, but there is a big medicine which is downforce in an F1 car.
You can do as much training, the hardest training, and you might get there and not perform how you wanted, not because of lack of training but maybe the pressure you are putting on yourself. That’s a major part of being a resilient athlete – it’s not just physical, it’s mental.
When onstage, I always try to take my audience through as many emotions as I possibly can. I want them to go from laughter to tears, be shocked and surprised and walk out the door with a renewed sense of themselves – and maybe a smile.
I was always a closet lover of acting. My mom was very practical. She never, ever restricted our dreams, always told us we could do or be anything. Then I said, ‘Maybe I want to be an actor’. And she said, ‘Maybe not that’.
My parents are very cool and wildly supportive – maybe almost too much. I want to tell them to chill out.
I always wanted to know what I’d face next, even though that was maybe a bit detrimental to spontaneity. Structuring my life and avoiding chaos was more important.
My husband gave me a necklace. It’s fake. I requested fake. Maybe I’m paranoid, but in this day and age, I don’t want something around my neck that’s worth more than my head.
I like refried beans. That’s why I wanna try fried beans, because maybe they’re just as good and we’re just wasting time. You don’t have to fry them again after all.
Feelings such as loneliness, longing or love are sometimes hard to put into words; maybe that’s why we all love music, because it resonates with something we can’t share.
The high probability is if American forces withdraw from Afghanistan and if no alternative international arrangement is made that then the historic contests between the regions and the sects will reappear, the Taliban will re-emerge, and a very complicated and maybe chaotic situation will develop.
I can’t take days off and play like I did last night. Maybe some people can, but I can’t.
Why, over her political career has Wall Street been a major – the major campaign contributor to Hillary Clinton? You know, maybe they’re dumb and they don’t know what they’re going to get, but I don’t think so.
I believe in lust at first sight; I don’t know about love. For me, I think it takes more than a glance. But who knows? Maybe it’ll happen.
When I read the pilot ‘for Married with Children’, it just reminded me of my Uncle Joe… just a self-deprecating kind of guy. He’d come home from work, and the wife would maybe say ‘I ran over the dog this morning in the driveway’. And he would say ‘Fine, what’s for dinner?
As film-makers, it is very important for us to find common ground between cultures, and maybe that’s less the case for politicians who benefit more from finding the conflicts and differences between us.
Well, I’ll keep on auditioning and one day maybe I’ll go to LA and try out for films there.
I have the ability to get code done, but I’m impatient, and it’s scrappy as a result. Maybe that helped me with ‘Minecraft,’ as it came quickly. But, well, at some point, I’d like to actually become a good programmer.
The failure of the United Nations – My failure is maybe, in retrospective, that I was not enough aggressive with the members of the Security Council.
You never know how it’s going to work out. I thought I was ready for the next challenge when I left Melbourne, maybe I was a bit more mature and a bit older.
It would surprise you how many government and business leaders with dyslexia. Some people view it as a weakness, and maybe it is. What dyslexia forces you to do, you don’t go A, B, C, D, E… to Z. I can go A, B… Z with speed.
Maybe if people stopped thinking of themselves, and started thinking of the other sides of things, people wouldn’t hurt each other.
I look up to a strong woman; maybe that’s why I fell for Gaga. She works incredibly hard and is very strong and inspirational like Mom, with a great work ethic.
I think I’m basically the same guy I always was. Maybe I’ve learned, through experience, to rein in some of the anger and temper they say redheads normally have.
For eleven months and maybe about twenty days each year, we concentrate upon the shortcomings of others, but for a few days at the turn of the New Year we look at our own. It is a good habit.
I think social media is… really cool in the sense that I don’t think that a writer like me would’ve found a readership if maybe Instagram wasn’t there.
Maybe it was the challenge of flight, the opportunity to fly, the competition of summer camp and the inspiration and discipline of West Point. I think all of those things helped me to develop a dedication and inspired me to get ahead.
Maybe I’m an elitist, but I don’t feel like I am.
Maybe I’m a glutton for punishment, but I enjoy anything where you get to flex your acting muscles, you get to really go for it.
Maybe if I didn’t have the talent in chess I’d find the talent in something else. The only thing I know is that I have talent in chess, and I’m satisfied with that.
Some say the economy means that you have to persuade people to invest in clothes – to buy less things but more expensive things. I disagree – invest in jewelry, or a house, maybe, but not in fashion.
Every chef has his treats. By that, I mean bits and pieces from things you’re working on – crusty little cake trimmings, ends from a brisket, collars from a salmon, scraps. But they’re snacks to me, and I eat them right off the cutting board – maybe too much.
We have our Upside Down document which describes its rules and its mythology in quite a bit of detail, but I think we’re just going to slowly parse that out, and maybe not even fully use all of it.
Everybody has that thing about them that makes them special, and sometimes we try to dull it down or we don’t always want to expose it, and maybe we’ve been taught that way or whatever. It’s just a matter of letting it out and letting it go and letting people in on it.
If I had an ego as big as the Eiffel Tower, would I have won this many collective trophies? I know people like to talk about it. And O.K., I am not going to answer every story. But maybe I will let my collective trophies speak for themselves. I don’t know many other footballers who have won as much. Do you?
Becoming a coach has to be in your blood. There are hundreds and thousands of former athletes out there, but there are maybe only 10 people who want to dedicate their lives by taking on a job as a coach. Not only a master, a coach should also be a brother or sister to his apprentices.
I did a movie called ‘Quicksand No Escape’ with Donald Sutherland and Tim Matheson. I think I was maybe 5. I was really little. Yeah, it was fun. And actually, Felicity Huffman played my mom.
People forget that boxing is the art of self-defence – ideally, hit and not be hit – and maybe we should all think about that a bit more.
I was involved in the ‘reformicon’ effort in 2013-2014, which was explicitly, ‘We can’t just Xerox Reagan.’ In the spirit of Reagan, actually, we could rethink things – maybe we need to think more about job-training programs, earned income tax credit, adjust the tax code.
I’m Cuban, so I know a lot of people who act like vampires. But wait, vampires have to be invited to your house, so maybe they are nothing like Latinos!
Maybe there is no actual place called hell. Maybe hell is just having to listen to our grandparents breathe through their noses when they’re eating sandwiches.
I think all of us certainly believed the statistics which said that probably 88% chance of mission success and maybe 96% chance of survival. And we were willing to take those odds.
I enjoy construction and the process of building things, so maybe I’d be a developer of some kind – residential and commercial. Because I produce a lot of television now, I enjoy building things from the ground up, whether it’s a physical structure or a show, and seeing them and realizing them.
I enjoy his concerts and OK, maybe – I can’t sing, I can’t dance, I can’t play the guitar, but I am going to go a long way if I keep following Springsteen.
One of the good things about being away is to digest things and maybe learn from things and see if there are better ways to get to where you want to be.
If I were to just focus on stand-up, I could actually, paradoxically enough, be home way more, because I would leave on a Friday, go do a couple theaters Friday, Saturday, maybe Sunday, come home.
Maybe I’m a dreamer, but I think the ordinary guy has just as much right to say ‘This is a good song’ as somebody who is in the music business.
I think maybe people see bands and musicians as some sort of superhero unrealistic sport that happens in another dimension where it’s not real people and not real emotions. So, I grew up listening to Beatles records on my floor. That’s how I learned how to play guitar. If it weren’t for them, I wouldn’t be a musician.
If the human condition were the periodic table, maybe love would be hydrogen at No. 1. Death would be helium at No. 2. Power, I reckon, would be where oxygen is.
We Montanans take pride in our low crime rate and believe honest people can disagree without being disagreeable. Maybe extremist groups believe they can find a home in Montana because of our easygoing ways.
I feel that a lot of human spirituality stems from the belief that we are unique and special in the universe, but maybe we are just what happens when there is proper temperature and proper distance from the right type of star.
At the beginning of writing fiction, too much of the newspaper style was getting into the prose, so I thought, ‘Gee, I should try writing longhand. Maybe I can tap something that goes back to the point before I could type.’
It’s the first time it’s happened to me and maybe the last. It’s a strange sensation, not normal for me. I can’t remember scoring three goals, even when I was a kid.
Nobody ever worked as hard as my father. My father averaged maybe four hours of sleep at night, and when you’re a kid, you don’t realize that. The man was tired. He was tired.
Maybe water polo and volleyball really help me on the court. Water polo with my one-handed passes, volleyball too, maybe when I tap passes.
I believe in discipline, so I’m not the right person to cry about weakness and things like this, but maybe I’m not human.
I try to stay focused on the work and recognize that I’ve been very lucky. Maybe it’s ’cause I grew up with actors, but I’ve seen that recognition comes and goes, so all there really is is your family and friends. You have to maintain those constants in your life. Maintain what’s beyond your work.
When I’m feeling down on myself or not feeling good about who I am, or maybe something happened and I’m feeling depressed, I eat to fill that void. Afterwards I’ll beat myself up about it. I regret doing it, but I’ll turn around and do it again.
I am quite quiet: I don’t feel as though I have to express myself with words too often. Maybe I should do more.
I just want to be a little more real. Maybe I’m a little bit darker than others.
If you’ve tried everything possible to get an outcome, and it just hasn’t worked out as planned, stop trying so hard. Relax. Maybe the timing’s not right. Maybe it wasn’t in your best interests. Maybe while one door seems to be closing, another is opening.
Maybe I’m delusional but I’m usually funny. It’s not 100% but I have a pretty good batting average.
I’m an athlete and I’m black, and a lot of black athletes go broke. I do not want to become a statistic, so maybe I overcompensate. But I’m paranoid. Oprah told me a long time ago, ‘You sign every check. Never let anyone sign any checks.’
Usually I start with a beat, I start making a beat, and my producer side is making the beat. And on a good day, my rapper side will jump in and start the writing process – maybe come up with a hook or start a verse. Sometimes it just happens like that. A song like ‘Lights Please’ happens like that.
Love at first sight is probably for stupid people, but maybe I’m just cynical.
Some people say that I have an attitude- Maybe I do. But I think that you have to. You have to believe in yourself when no one else does- that makes you a winner right there.
The thing that inspires me most is empathizing with people’s flaws and seeing how they deal with them. That sort of connection you feel with someone when you realize that maybe even the negative things that they’ve said or done are because of insecurities or injuries they’ve endured.
I’m open to making any kind of music, or maybe making no music ever again. That’s also an option, always. Who knows what’ll happen.
Maybe I’m old-fashioned, but I think viewers are hungry for shows in which people say something meaningful.
I wanted to play professional hockey, man. But when I acted, I thought, ‘Well, okay, maybe I do have something here.’
Mountaineering is over. Alpinism is dead. Maybe its spirit is still alive a little in Britain and America, but it will soon die out.
Maybe I’m the baddest chick on the planet, maybe I’m the baddest woman in the Octagon, but I’m definitely emotional.
Look, my body fat percentage has maybe gone up a percent or two, but it’s not gone up that much at all. I would say a lot of it has been attributed to muscle. It’s a lot of muscle.
If I was in a bad mood, then maybe I won’t talk about it, but you’re going to know about it somehow. If something was bothering me, maybe I would have acted a little bit like a child, meaning I go break something in a room.
I connect to the tradition of Irish storytelling. And I think there is something – I can’t put my finger on it – something genetic there. Maybe just a need to tell stories.
A lot of people do comedy about India, but they’re not from India. It’s a Kwik-E-Mart perspective. I want to provide a genuine view and maybe one on how we see the West.
If I could dress anyone, I’d like to dress the Queen – she can handle anything. I’d put her in black – she never wears black – and add a little leather, maybe. A little rock n’ roll.
I had the fortune or misfortune to learn how to read fluently starting at the age of three. So I had read maybe 150 books by the time I hit 1st grade. And I already knew that the teachers were lying to me.
I’ve been lucky enough – well, maybe unlucky enough – to have had a lot of friends who have had their ups and downs. And for an actor, that’s good. Life experience in any regard is good. So I’ve seen a lot and I’ve had my own experiences.
And if you see me, smile and maybe give me a hug. That’s important to me too.
I got a random tattoo the other day. It’s a red triangle, which makes everyone think I’m arty, which I’m not. I used to draw red triangles all the time. It must mean something – maybe I don’t know it yet. But I’ll figure it out.
Ultimately, if you can say that I’m a bad owner and we’re winning championships, I can live with that. But if we’re not making the playoffs and we’re spending and losing money, then I have to look in the mirror and say maybe I’m not taking the necessary steps to doing what it takes to run an organization.
We’re lousy at recognizing when our normal coping mechanisms aren’t working. Our response is usually to do it five times more, instead of thinking, maybe it’s time to try something new.
They call me corrupt, frivolous. I am not at all privileged. Maybe the only privileged thing is my face. And corrupt? God! I would not look like this if I am corrupt. Some ugliness would settle down on my system.
Maybe other people will try to limit me but I don’t limit myself.
Maybe I was just born to argue with men.
The mustache – I was never happy with the fullness of it. I was a bit too young. Maybe I’ll bring it back in my mid-thirties.
Maybe for you in America, Dr. King has become boring because you hear about him so much. But for me, he is the man who has most inspired me.
I’ve been working with my stylist for a long time, Cece Liu. We’ve gone from buying and returning clothing, to this point where maybe finally a designer will dress me without me having to buy and return it.
The last book I read was Noam Chomsky on anarchism; maybe I will become an anarchist.
I remember flying in, driving down 101 in a cab, and passing by all these tech companies like Yahoo! I remember thinking, ‘Maybe someday we’ll build a company. This probably isn’t it, but one day we will.’
And frankly, I don’t understand – I mean, I’m obviously a card-carrying Democrat – but I can’t understand why any woman would want to vote for Mitt Romney, except maybe Mrs. Romney.
Maybe I should be making more mainstream films if I want to get some money.
Dedicating your life to something, dedicating time to something, ending up achieving it and maybe doing better than that. Me personally, that would be a Stanley Cup. That’s something I’ve dreamed of my whole life. I think that’s why every hockey player at this level plays.
The 1950s and 1960s had been a period of enormous growth, the highest in American history, maybe in economic history.
Growing up, I like to say I was a tomboy because it was partially maybe because I had brothers and stuff, but also it was hard for me, being a bigger girl, to find cute clothing like everyone else.
We’ve already been reincarnated about a million times, maybe. It doesn’t make sense any other way.
I’ve seen other artists put out movies that went straight to DVD, and no one cared. Maybe their own fans bought the thing, and that was fine.
First, I’m trying to prove to myself that I’m a person. Then maybe I’ll convince myself that I’m an actress.
I think it’s never too late to start anything, except maybe being a ballerina.
You know how you’re in elementary school and the teacher goes around the room and, like, ‘What do you want to be when you grow up?’ I said, ‘NBA player.’ And she’s like, ‘Well, OK. Maybe pick a real job.’ But I really believed it. I felt like I was meant to be here.
I guess maybe there is two sides of me – the nice guy and then the beast within.
I think maybe I was a shepherdess in a past life.
Maybe Larry Kings cannot thrive or even survive in a world where the norms for discourse are rage, vehemence and character assassination. King wanted to be liked, not feared; admired, not loathed.
There were definitely dark nights when you’re like, ‘Maybe joining the military wasn’t such a good idea.’ But, in a way, it was the best training to be an actor.
Everyone wants to know why my top lip doesn’t move… I had laser hair removal on my upper lip, oh gosh, 2009, maybe 2008, and I got a third-degree burn. And my face on the right side doesn’t move the way my face on the left side moves. So, that is why.
Maybe it’s because I was an only child, but I’ve always wanted kids.
Maybe apart from the World Cup, the Champions League is one of the most important trophies in the world of football.
Everybody could use the money, but you don’t play for it – you play with your heart – and that’s a big difference you see in Barcelona. Everybody wants to play there; everybody wants to enjoy themselves. It’s maybe a small percentage, but maybe it’s the difference.
I get a lot of the ideas when I’m resting – either when I’m meditating or getting some kind of work done on my back, like physical therapy or acupuncture. That’s where I get my best ideas, maybe because I’m balancing my body.
I was having an argument with my stepfather, and he was like, ‘Why don’t you join the Marine Corps?’ And I was like, ‘Noooo! Well, maybe, actually… ‘ I went and saw the recruiter, who was like, ‘Are you on the run from the cops? Because we’ve never had someone want to leave so fast.’
When someone saves your life and gives you life, there’s gratitude, humility; there’s a time you’ve been so blessed you realize you’ve been given another chance at life that maybe you did or didn’t deserve.
I think mascara is a must. If I’m going to wear makeup somewhere, and I’m doing it, it’s usually really simple – it’s just mascara and maybe a tiny bit of eyeshadow, but that’s it.
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.
The silent killer of all great men and women of achievement – particularly men, I don’t know why, maybe it’s the testosterone – I think it’s narcissism. Even more than hubris. And for women, too. Narcissism is the killer.
I think with certain artists you want to hear their album… and then there are other artists who I like where maybe it’s more about the single. I don’t think there is going to be one way that everything works.
In the globalized world that is ours, maybe we are moving towards a global village, but that global village brings in a lot of different people, a lot of different ideas, lots of different backgrounds, lots of different aspirations.
All I can be is myself. I feel comfortable in my own skin, which I think is maybe what translates.
Not everybody can like what I do, and if you feel that somebody is coming up closer to you and starting the rivalry and everything, you maybe change your position to him.
Should there be double standards in the world? Maybe.
All my heroes wore coats and ties to work. What happened to men wearing hats? Maybe I should bring back hats.
When the Mondays split up I looked at the others who’d rather sign on the dole than work with me and Bez, and thought: ‘Whoa, you’re gonna throw this opportunity away and maybe never work in music again?’ There was no way we were doing that.
A friend of mine jokes that I have a painstaking royalty complex. Like maybe I was a duke in a past life.
I feel that the best companies are started not because the founder wanted a company but because the founder wanted to change the world… If you decide you want to found a company, you maybe start to develop your first idea. And hire lots of workers.
One of the criticisms I’ve faced over the years is that I’m not aggressive enough or assertive enough, or maybe somehow, because I’m empathetic, it means I’m weak. I totally rebel against that. I refuse to believe that you cannot be both compassionate and strong.
Maybe the biggest award show of the largest entertainment importer in the world needs an economic incentive to embrace diversity. Indeed, maybe we should boycott the show and pressure advertisers to do the same. Or maybe the Academy should learn the lesson of history and change because it’s the right thing to do.
I had a great deal of confidence when I graduated from Berkeley. I had almost none when I was at Princeton. After a while, when people tell you you can’t do something because you’re a woman, you begin to believe maybe they’re right.
I think the idea is that every time we perform Big Red Machine music it should be different somehow – like, different people, different songs maybe, definitely different versions of the songs.
Acting was a hobby for me when I started out, or maybe it was because there weren’t a lot of examples of me when I found an interest in this art form.
Am I grumpy? I might be. But I think maybe sometimes it’s misinterpreted.
It’s really fun for me to go do things that maybe people don’t think I can do.
Sometimes all you need is just for somebody to believe in you in order to be able to accomplish maybe what you never thought you could.
I didn’t know what to expect from a famous movie star; maybe that he’d be sort of stuck-up, you know. But not Gary Cooper. He horsed around so much… that I had a hard time painting him.
Not trying to be arrogant, but if I walked down the street and a girl saw me, she might take a look back because maybe I’m good-looking, right?
When you’re a kid, you have these big ideas and these big dreams to make a change, or maybe you feel like you can’t make a difference.
To me, Ann Romney sounds like a better candidate than her husband. She put her MS into remission through horseback riding, alternative therapies, and a healthy diet. She knows how to pace herself. She has a sense of humor and an innate honesty, and her hair moves in the wind. Maybe she should run.
We just stuck to what we did best. Maybe that’s why people plug into us and go ‘They never change.’ We’re reliable. A bit like old shoes.
I enjoy every climb – maybe it’s because it’s a literal dance between life and death.
I think I pose some problems for Georges that he maybe hasn’t seen in the past.
Maybe Carnatic music will become more digital, because it is an audio form. But even then, why do people flock to the December season in Madras? Because they want to see the artiste face-to-face.
Once I decided to retire from bikes, there was no thought to go racing again. I wanted to have a full year off and maybe even see the world a bit.
If anything, taxes for the lower and middle class and maybe even the upper middle class should even probably be cut further. But I think that people at the high end – people like myself – should be paying a lot more in taxes. We have it better than we’ve ever had it.
Everyone has their style and your style explains a lot about who you are – you feel me? I’ve had style since childhood, so I like to dress how I feel. But maybe I get carried away by some trends.
I’ve always maintained that you can be sexy with your clothes on. Sexier maybe.
It’s hard for anybody who’s been with me not to feel starved for affection when I’m making love to my ideas. Maybe it’s not meant for me to settle down and be married.
I really didn’t understand why hackers would want to hack into a classroom. Are they going to learn algebra? Maybe calculus?
As technology evolves, it manipulates our culture, and there’s a huge opportunity to push ourselves further. I think it actually makes ourselves maybe more human, or at least human in a different way, that we can connect together in amazingly different ways and powerful new ways.
If I can help a kid feel more comfortable in their skin because they’re struggling with maybe the things I struggled with in high school, that’s great.
There’s as much crookedness as you want to find. There was something Abraham Lincoln said – he’d rather trust and be disappointed than distrust and be miserable all the time. Maybe I trusted too much.
More than a half, maybe as much as two-thirds of my life as a writer is rewriting. I wouldn’t say I have a talent that’s special. It strikes me that I have an unusual kind of stamina.
Sometimes I felt as a writer I was purging, and it almost hurt to purge to that level. Now it doesn’t feel that way, maybe because I’m older. Maybe life has given me some punches, but it didn’t knock me down.
What does my performance have to do with Russell Crowe’s? Nothing. If I play Gladiator and we all play Gladiator with Ridley Scott in the same amount of time, maybe we have a chance to see who did it best.
I don’t blame the average seventeen-year-old punk-rock kid for calling me a sellout. I understand that. And maybe when they grow up a little bit, they’ll realize there’s more things to life than living out your rock & roll identity so righteously.
I change my style maybe every month. I’m, like, punk one month, ghetto fab the next, classy the next. I’m just young and finding out who I am.
There was a pony named Barbapoppa that I received at the age of five, and he was very mischievous and maybe even devilish. Barbapoppa was the most fabulous first animal I was to have and challenged me much.
Maybe subconsciously I feel I was meant to work hard for a living.
Maybe the worst thing is not caring what people think. That came from my mother. She was the biggest influence on my life.
I think that Governor Romney needs to talk about the fact that what he tried to do in the state of Massachusetts was him seeing what could be best for his state, but maybe it didn’t work out as well.
Age isn’t a barrier to playing the bass, and I’ve definitely improved over the years, although maybe I’m not as flash as I once was. But looking back, I can’t imagine a life without a guitar.
To me, the best love songs work on two – maybe three – different levels, where you’re talking about the person who you’re right opposite, and all the people like that.
I think I have let ego get in the way sometimes – the pendulum swung pretty strongly. I was maybe a little overconfident at one point in my time, and then I went way the other way and thought I wasn’t capable of anything.
From an evolutionary standpoint, human consciousness has not been around very long. A little light just went on after four and a half billion years. How often does that happen? Maybe it is quite rare.
I’ve had a couple of people come up to me after screenings and say they kind of sympathized with the character. I always get a kick out of it when people say that. It means I did something maybe a little bit to the credit of the character.
I’m not that good looking… nobody is that good looking. I have seen a lot of movie stars, and maybe four are amazing looking. The rest have a team of gay guys who make it happen.
I see a cute guy in Starbucks and I’m like… ‘Oh, okay,’ and I walk out. But who knows? Maybe I will ask somebody on a date soon!
It’s so exhausting in the pocket taking shots when you know I can go. I don’t want to take that shot and maybe make a bigger play. To dedicate and discipline your mind that ‘I have to find a way, that’s the only way I can learn… ‘ That’s the challenge.
Until maybe my coworker makes a six-and-a-half-foot Nerf gun, I’m the proud holder of a world record.
It was a given at UCSB that if there was a role that called for a person of color, it was going to be handed to me. There were certain times when maybe I didn’t try as hard. Going to Yale was a way more diverse experience.
I knew him, but never felt that I got really close to Saint Laurent. But who really did? Betty Catroux, maybe.
At one point, people are going to have to realize that maybe I know what I’m doing.
The short hair fits my personality more. I think maybe, with long hair, it was a role – I was playing dress-up a bit.
Maybe I haven’t been tested, but I have no fear of death at all. I was with Allen Ginsberg during the last year of his life, and he called all his friends and said, ‘I’m on my way out, and it’s kind of exciting.’ I see it as kind of exciting, too.
I had maybe heard ‘The Times Are A-Changing’ on the radio, but I had no idea who Dylan was. No idea.
I think that at the start of a game, you’re always playing to win, and then maybe if you’re ahead late in the game, you start playing not to lose. The true competitors, though, are the ones who always play to win.
I’m not a person who wants to die with my shoes on. I do not think I can be immortal. Maybe my deeds will be immortal. Not me.
I cut off my dreadlocks, but I couldn’t face throwing them away. They were so hard to grow, man. There’s a lot of work goes into those things. Some people keep a diary or a photo album to remind them of their past lives – well, I’ve got hair. Who knows? One day, maybe my grandchildren might want to see it.
Everyone always wants to find the answer, to feel that things are resolved. But in dreams, maybe there isn’t an answer so much.
Parents of young children should realize that few people, and maybe no one, will find their children as enchanting as they do.
Maybe I am conservative, but I like to have a little fun, too.
I used to get the feeling, and sometimes I still get it, that sometimes I was fooling somebody; I don’t know who or what, maybe myself.
I don’t think you should ever say, ‘This is the last time’. Music isn’t like that. You’ll be sitting there not wishing to get onto a stage again for maybe two, three, four, five months, or maybe a year, then suddenly you’ll wake up and feel like you’ve got to do it again. It’s in the blood, and I never say never.
Many people assume the diseases that kill us are pre-programmed into our genes. High blood pressure by 55, heart attacks at 60, maybe cancer at 70, and so on… But for most of the leading causes of death, our genes usually account for only 10-20 per cent of risk.
Songs really are like a form of time travel because they really have moved forward in a bubble. Everyone who’s connected with it, the studio’s gone, the musicians are gone, and the only thing that’s left is this recording which was only about a three-minute period maybe 70 years ago.
I did plays in college, and I have half of a play. But I’m kind of stuck. I keep revisiting it so maybe it will move somewhere. There’s something about plays where you can feel that sense of artifice at any moment.
You get to thinking that because you’ve written 50 or 100 songs, you think maybe you know how to do it. But when they’re not coming along, you’re just as in the dark as you ever were. When they’re coming along, there’s nothing to it. Sometimes it’s so easy, it’s like you’re a court stenographer.
People ask me if I would like my children to play tennis, and I’m, like, ‘Hmm. Maybe not.’ And that’s a bit strange.
I’m not a birthday person. Maybe because I don’t like to build expectations around that one day. You never know how it’ll turn out to be.
Monk’s gone, and House is gone. Maybe I can pick up where they left off.
There are occasionally eureka moments – off the top of my head, maybe Darth Vader’s theme, you know, the imperial march.
My second wife Bonnie Owens and I worked together after we divorced for a period of maybe 20 years. And I managed to stay friends with another wife. And then there’s one that I don’t mess with. Everybody’s got one of those.
If you live through the initial stage of fame and get past it, and remember thats not who you are. If you live past that, then you have a hope of maybe learning how to spell the word artist.
The ‘Maybe Memories’ album I remember having and listening until it broke. I remember it skipped one day; two or three songs wouldn’t play on my CD player because I listened to it so much.
Maybe we are all prospective migrants. The lines of national borders on maps are artificial constructs, as unnatural to us as they are to birds flying overhead. Our first impulse is to ignore them.
I was a player who got the job done, and I think I’m kind of maybe thought of like that as a manager.
How many crossroads are you allowed to have in life? I seem to have a lot of crossroads. I think maybe I crossed back across the same road too often.
I went to the University of Vermont because I had a kind of unrequited love for this high school girlfriend. She wasn’t even at the University but at another school nearby. But I thought if went to a school near her, just maybe… I was really remedial about girls in so many ways.
I would love to slip into the skin of a fish and know what it’s like to be one. They have senses that I can only dream about. They have a lateral line down their whole body that senses motion, but maybe it does more than that.
It’s true that most American citizens think of themselves as living in a democratic country. But when was the last time that any Americans actually sat down and came to a collective decision? Maybe if they are ordering pizzas, but basically never.
I’m actually quite a shy person and it’s becoming clearer to me. Sometimes I would like to disappear, maybe only for an hour.
Even more important maybe, or equally more important at least, is they don’t have to scrap for a living.
I can be the nice family man at home, and then when I go to the gym, maybe sparring with someone, I switch into beast mode. It ain’t pretty.
I just realized that if it’s really compassion that drives you, maybe it’s not enough just to stop eating animals but you maybe should boycott the whole animal industry, because… it’s not what you as a compassionate being would want. So actually you should go one step further and become vegan.
I guess maybe someone at ‘Dexter’ saw the ‘Mad Men’ stuff and thought, ‘He can do this.’
When you have kids, you see life through different eyes. You feel love more deeply and are maybe a little more compassionate. It’s inevitable that that would make its way into your songwriting.
I see myself maybe being, like, a movie producer or screenwriter or a novelist or a scientist or mathematician.
It’s crazy this is my life. But man’s been working for years so maybe it’s not that mad.
I wanted to be a cool mom. It was hectic. I felt very isolated for a long time, but in the end, it was cool because it helped me and Ninja stick together. If we hadn’t, we would have maybe drifted.
I think all of us, under certain circumstances, could be capable of some very despicable acts. And that’s why, over the years, in my movies I’ve had characters who didn’t care what people thought about them. We try to be as true to them as possible and maybe see part of ourselves in there that we may not like.
Maybe at this stage in my career, it’s from that younger generation that I have most to learn.
I did the first HBO special ever in 1975 at Haverford College. Cable was new then: HBO was a Time-Life entity, with maybe 400,000 or 500,000 subscribers and maybe 50 employees.
If you put your hand on the piano, you play a note. It’s in tune. But if you put it on the violin, maybe it is, maybe it isn’t. You have to figure it out.
I think ‘No’ is a very powerful word in our business that is very hard to use early on in your career. But I also think I was pretty arrogant when I was younger… I used that word maybe too much, but it did help me with finding roles that I did like.
I think that maybe that’s my weakness, in that I don’t know how to do it, so I just do what I do and try to do it as passionately and as well as I can.
Maybe climate change is a threat, and maybe climate change has been tarted up by climatologists trolling for research grant cash. It doesn’t matter.
Did Superman really want to save the world, or did he just feel like he had to? Would he much rather be a farmer? Maybe. Would he much rather be hanging out with his dad and his mom and his dog? Probably.
If they had rankings in baseball, maybe I would have been able to do the math and figure out my chances of being a professional baseball player versus a tennis player. But that was the decision-maker for me, I just thought I was better in tennis.
I remember, I used to get off a bus, and if there was someone sitting in the station, I remember thinking maybe they were from Shin Bet and came for me.
I have ice cream every week. Maybe twice. I live for ice cream, but not just any ice cream. It has to be locally sourced and usually somewhere I can walk to.
I’ve not been afraid to take risks, be resolute and passionate about purpose, and inspire people to do things that maybe they thought weren’t possible.
Maybe this is just horrible bad, but I think I’ve had enough successes to where the journey is more important to me now. There’s no guarantee, no matter what. We get one run in life.
Maybe one day there will finally be an education for electronic music.
I often get asked if I think I’m ever going to build something useful, and maybe someday I will.
I guess there was a little bit of a slight rebellion, maybe a little bit of a renegade desire that made me realize at some point in my adolescence that I really liked pictures that told stories of things – genre paintings, historical paintings – the sort of derivatives we get in contemporary society.
When I fight for a cause and I know it, I fight for it. I’m not scared to say something. I think some tennis player, maybe they’re a bit scared, whatever is the reason. Definitely, some athletes, they fight for big cause. They speak it loud. I think it’s great. It’s great for sport. It’s great for life.
The two real leads in ‘Children of Men’ are Clive Owen and the social environment. You know, this same movie without the social environment maybe is just like a generic chase movie.
Maybe utopianism is my form of religion in a world without God.
A lot of times, going into the interview, you have an idea of maybe what you want to talk about. And the people you are interviewing have an idea of what they want to talk about.
Maybe I am not French, maybe I am from nowhere.
I detest jokes – when somebody tells me one, I feel my IQ dropping; the brain cells start to disappear. But something is funny when the person delivering the line doesn’t know it’s funny or doesn’t treat it as a joke. Maybe it comes from a place of truth, or it’s a sort of rage against society.
We never thought ‘Say Something’ would be a holiday song. I’m still surprised that it’s resonating at this time of year. Maybe that’s why it’s working so well – it balances out all the joy.
Maybe it’s stress or anger or adrenaline or disillusionment or a bullying nature or simple fear of getting killed themselves, but there is a problem if a cop cannot tell the difference between a menacing gangster and the far more common person they encounter whose life is a little frayed and messy.
I can sing ‘Happy Birthday’ to you in twelve different places, but one of them is going to make you feel a certain thing, maybe it’s a vulnerability, maybe an innocence, maybe another way is sexy and soulful or bluesy whatever it is, but with singers, exploring keys, I think, is important.
I mean, Ed Snowden was basically saying the same things that Bill Binney and Thomas Drake and other U.S. whistleblowers had said before him. But he came out more publicly, and maybe revealed more. He showed that when the U.S. government said, ‘We are not surveilling U.S. citizens,’ that was a lie.
There are people who are unsure, and maybe their minds can be changed based on someone’s work and accomplishments. Those people are the ones I’m interested in having stay tuned and watching for the rest of my career.
I got racist abuse at Liverpool when I played for Watford. Then I played for Liverpool and didn’t get it. If I had played for Everton against Liverpool then maybe the Liverpool fans would have racially abused me.
Maybe true love isn’t out there for me, but I can sublimate my loneliness with the notion that true love is out there for someone.
Maybe now, instead of being afraid and saying, ‘Look how hard Terry tried, and he still got cancer,’ instead people will say, ‘Look at the effort he put in, and he died of cancer. We’re really going to have to try hard in order to beat it – harder than we ever have before.’
Nothing is easy in cricket. Maybe when you watch it on TV, it looks easy. But it is not. You have to use your brain and time the ball.
I wish I had more hair on my head. Maybe if I sprinkled fertilizer on it, it would grow.
Maybe I’m a damaged man. I think we’re all damaged in some ways. When I was younger I never thought I had any way of breaking through the hardships.
Elle Fanning is the sweetest, most adorable thing ever. Although maybe I can’t say she’s adorable, because she’s way taller than me.
Look at my life. I almost died. I almost died several times. My shoulders were down, man. But I kicked out. I kicked out again. Someone upstairs obviously likes me. So maybe I should, too.
When you’re a chill, laid back guy, you maybe have more pent-up frustration, anger, bitterness, than maybe somebody a little wilder would have.
When I was in college, I wanted to study film. My first passion was to be a cinematographer. So maybe there’s something innate in my music where it partners well with images.
A lot of the time, I read something I’ve written, and I think, ‘Well, that’s competent. It’s not exactly breaking any boundaries. It’s not exactly transgressive. It’s just a bunch of fake people in a room talking to each other. But maybe there’s a value to that.’
‘The L-Word’ was such a great show because of the amazing writing and characters, but maybe because it was such a new concept, people couldn’t pick up on it, but I think it was down to the dynamic characters and how well done it was.
One of the biggest mistakes that founders can make is doing something that maybe seems like a great idea, and seems like a good use of time, but actually isn’t measurable, significant, incremental growth.
Usually when I start a new project there’s a fear of the unknown; maybe it’s a band I’ve never been in the studio with before. People are so different. It’s almost like you need to go through the process, discover and unlock what it is that makes that band that band. And a lot of times they don’t know it.
I’ve never lost perspective on who I am. Well, maybe briefly, but generally I’m pretty balanced.
I’ve always had a foot in everything. As a kid, I was active in sports and theater. Now, I’m learning I have to focus a bit. I’m trying to get to next projects, like writing a screenplay. Once that comes together, I could put my mind to another book – maybe a fun kids’ book.
When things could’ve gone really bad, rugby caught my interest and I really stuck with it. The sport brought me, maybe off the streets where we’d be fighting, into putting in a good effort in the rugby field where you’re kind of rewarded for that rough behaviour instead of in trouble with the law.
You know, the benefit in life is to say, ‘Maybe you made a mistake, let’s dig deep.’
Actually, I would love to make a music video. Maybe it would finally put to rest those persistent rumours that have followed me throughout my career – particularly when I was on camera performing – that I had died.
Propaganda has a negative connotation, which it partially deserves, but I think there is some propaganda that is very positive. I feel that if you can do something that gets people’s attention, then maybe they’ll go and find out more about the person.
I thought maybe I’d be a farmer. That was another silly notion. I think I’d last about five minutes, being a farmer.
Maybe it’s a little depressing to think that my vision of a perfect world is actually so messed up, but I think it means that I don’t really understand what ‘perfect’ is.
Well, I definitely have an artistic side to me as well. I write, I act, I draw. With that artistic mind I have, a lot of doors have opened for me. I can try to pursue, like – if it’s something using my writing skills, maybe a book. Or maybe if it’s my drawing skills, some clothing designs.
When you keep things responsible and manageable, you can make some interesting movies that you maybe couldn’t make otherwise.
Maybe that’s what life is… a wink of the eye and winking stars.
It’s maybe a better thought to change the perception of an accent than to avoid it all together.
I think that taxes have to exist. They should exist at the lowest possible level, and to the extent that we can, we shouldn’t invent more. Maybe that’s my experience being mayor of New York City, where we had so many taxes.
I go to make art as who I am as a person. The fact that I am a woman comes into play maybe in the kinds of things I’m interested in or in the way I structure a canvas.
The public is probably more suspicious of poets than women, and maybe for good reason.
Maybe I was born to be a merchant, maybe it was fate. I don’t know about that. But I know this for sure: I loved retail from the very beginning.
A lot of companies have chosen to downsize, and maybe that was the right thing for them. We chose a different path. Our belief was that if we kept putting great products in front of customers, they would continue to open their wallets.
Maybe because I’m a child of the ’80s, but for me, a sequel is a story that follows the previous one, and sometimes if you haven’t seen the original, then you don’t understand the second one. Like ‘Back to the Future 2.’ If you haven’t seen the first one, you’re not going to get anything out of ‘Back to the Future 2.’
Technically, maybe I learned most of all from George Stevens, and among his movies I learned the most from ‘A Place in the Sun.’ It’s a lesson in moviemaking.
I think I did a pretty good job – particularly when I was racing with Hakkinen. It was maybe the first time that I have been challenging with the big boys, and I really enjoyed it.
I ask myself why I do it. Maybe it’s to prove I’m still around. It takes a lot out of my body. I’m not an NBA player anymore. At my age, very few people can handle it.
Now they show you how detergents take out bloodstains, a pretty violent image there. I think if you’ve got a T-shirt with a bloodstain all over it, maybe laundry isn’t your biggest problem. Maybe you should get rid of the body before you do the wash.
The Congo was the most difficult shoot of my life but was also maybe the greatest adventure of my life.
I wanted to be a marine biologist my whole life until I graduated high school. And even now, I’m still like, ‘Maybe I’ll just quit the biz and go to Santa Cruz and study marine biology and have my own research center in the Bahamas.’ Yeah, I’m sure it would be just that smooth.
Failure is easy to handle because once you fail, the options are very simple… like, ‘Try something different,’ or, ‘Maybe if you do the same thing, do it in a different way.’
I want to be remembered as a nice person who didn’t hurt people – except my ex-husbands, maybe.
I kind of liked the idea of filming musicians. I could like a musician and know, at the same time, maybe nobody else maybe liked them much or appreciated them.
Our whole philosophy was to intimidate the quarterback. We were able to do it. We were pioneers. People still recognize us as, maybe, the best defensive line of all time.
I have four kids, seven grandkids, and four great-grandkids. Maybe I can become a great-great-grandfather if I hang on!
Maybe there is something specifically Scandinavian that comes out of the long, dark winters – you have to learn to laugh at misery, in a way.
When I was maybe 5 or 6 years old, the neighborhood girls would sit on the stoop and sing. I was known as the kid who had a good voice and no father.
Your idea of that dish has evolved, and if you’re a cook, you can start thinking in different ways about it, maybe even a different way than I think about it.
When I’m 60, maybe, I’ll look at my pile of papers and wonder, What really happened that year?
I used to go to Bourbon Street when I was a kid and there would be club after club after club of people who were around when the music started. I mean these are legendary, maybe not so well known, but legendary musicians.
I once wanted to prove myself by being a great actress. Now I want to prove that I’m a person. Then maybe I’ll be a great actress.
Working 24 hours a day isn’t enough anymore. You have to be willing to sacrifice everything to be successful, including your personal life, your family life, maybe more. If people think it’s any less, they’re wrong, and they will fail.
Maybe the preoccupation with technological progress has overshadowed our concern with human progress.
All food is comfort food. Maybe I just like to chew.
I am pretty expressive with my emotions. I don’t think something and say something else. I don’t know if it’s something I should be proud of or to watch out for. Maybe I am not politically correct. I don’t know if that’s a crime.
I think one of the biggest mistakes that America has made – and maybe the world because this is, sort of, the core of communism and socialism – is that you can have perfect solutions to social problems like poverty, like crime. You’re not going to eliminate all crime. Maybe you’ll never eliminate all poverty.
I have a point to prove. Sometimes you have to repair things, and maybe I have a little bit that I need to repair.
We say we want to create beauty, identity, quality, singularity. And yet, maybe in truth these cities that we have are desired. Maybe their very characterlessness provides the best context for living.
For me it’s about the music, and it always has been. Maybe for some other people it’s more about money.
There are a lot of hardcore ‘Napoleon’ fans, and they do the research and find photos of what I look like when I’m not ‘Kip-ified.’ Those fans recognize me. It happens maybe once a week, where someone will come up to me and be, like, ‘Dude, you’re Kip.’ And I’m, like, ‘Yeah, my name’s Aaron.’
I just had different circumstances than most players, and I think that has been an advantage – maybe I carry a little chip on my shoulder with just how tough it was for my parents to overcome some of those financial situations.
America is not nearly done. We’re only in the beginning. Who knows who we will be? Who knows… what color we will be? It is all something that, maybe, our descendants – if they survive that long – will see.
Sometimes I’ll watch a music video of a great performer like Beyonce and try to follow her choreography. Yeah, maybe I look ridiculous, but dancing gets your energy up a lot better than running on a treadmill or pedaling a stationary bike.
There are many things that, if I have to relive, maybe I will do it another way. But I would not like to look back and think what I have not been able to.
None of us know what comes after death. All of us, to some extent, are probably mystified or maybe a little bit frightened of it.
I like Daniel Craig. I worked with him on ‘Sharpe,’ one of the very early ones, maybe the second one we did – ‘Sharpe’s Revenge?’ A long, long time ago, and he was good in that then.
I think maybe I became funny because as a kid, I was a Jew in a town of no Jews, and being funny just instinctively came about as a way to put people at ease around me.
Everybody has a job to do. There are people in Iraq on both sides of this war who do what they do for religious reasons, and they feel with God on their side. Some people are good at annihilating people. Maybe that’s their gift.
I do not diminish the incredible symbolic importance of a black man getting elected president. But my euphoria was a smart guy getting elected president. Maybe for the first time in my lifetime we had elected one of the thousand smartest Americans president.
Celibacy is not just a matter of not having sex. It is a way of admiring a person for their humanity, maybe even for their beauty.
Mum put me in drama classes when I was about 14. I’d been going on about it for some time, so maybe it was a way to shut me up.
Maybe black and white is the best medium for landscapes, I don’t know.
For my own style, I love vintage. 60’s and 70’s are my favorite. I love baby doll dresses and the soft colors. I try to mix a little bit of modern into that – maybe I’ll wear it with boots. At my school we wear a uniform, but we have one day a week we can wear whatever we want.
I was very shy as a girl. Absurdly shy, even. Maybe because I was an only child. And I think that’s why I’m so happy to have two kids now.
If you’re understood in maybe, I don’t know, 60% of your soul by your partner, that’s fantastic. Don’t expect that it’s going to be 100%. Of course you will be lonely.
By any accepted standard, I have had more than nine lives. I counted them up once, and there were 13 times I almost and maybe should have died.
I know I have a big, big head. Hats, a lot of times, do not fit me. What is the average head size? Maybe like 16 inches. From the center of my forehead around to other side might be a foot, give or take four inches.
I’ve really loved steampunk for a long time, ever since ‘Wild Wild West,’ and it’s always been a genre and an era that’s fascinated me. But so often it’s set in England, and that doesn’t really resonate with me, or maybe it just seems a little overdone.
Maybe once in a while, you know, after a hard day of shooting or something like that, I’d kick back.
I really think we should pass a law in every state, I don’t care whether it takes the independence away from an old person or not. You shouldn’t be driving a car if you’re over the age of 80. Maybe even less than that.
I believe in myself and maybe people take that as cocky and flash but in this game you have to believe in yourself or you won’t get anywhere.
My music will go on forever. Maybe it’s a fool say that, but when me know facts me can say facts. My music will go on forever.
The Tea Party movement itself is maybe 15, 20 percent of the electorate. It’s relatively affluent, white, nativist. You know, it has rather traditional nativist streaks to it. But what is much more important, I think, is the – is its outrage.
Our role is to be a platform for making all of these apps more social, and it’s kind of an extension of what we see happening on the web, with the exception of mobile, which I think will be even more important than the web in a few years – maybe even sooner.
I hate organized religion. I think you have to love thy neighbor as thyself. I think you have to pick your own God and be true to him. I always say ‘him’ rather than ‘her.’ Maybe it’s because of my generation, but I don’t like the idea of a female God. I see God as a benevolent male.
I think that maybe if women and children were in charge we would get somewhere.
I can say that on the record ‘Transit of Venus,’ there’s maybe one or two songs that actually do come from my heart, but a lot of songs have been written just for radio and for fans, you know, to relate to.
I don’t know why my leading men have grey shades. Maybe I am trying to explore that side of me through them.
Hard-boiled eggs are wonderful when they’re really done right. I bring the water to a boil, and then I put in the eggs. And then I boil them for – well, it depends on the size of the egg – maybe eight minutes.
Cooking is all about people. Food is maybe the only universal thing that really has the power to bring everyone together. No matter what culture, everywhere around the world, people get together to eat.
I’d just love to ride off into the sunset with my love. I’ve only seen the sunset so far. Maybe I can earn my own Ferrari so I can ride off in the sunset without anyone by my side.
If I were very handsome, maybe I’d have been an actor.
I’m not sure why I still think of myself as 28 – maybe that’s the point where you start growing up, and then you just feel the same for evermore.
I think – I don’t know, maybe it’s nostalgia. But the choice, losing the choice to be able to use film is going to be – it’s gone. It’s going to be gone.
When you’re dead, you’re dead. No one is going to remember me when I’m dead. Oh, maybe a few friends will remember me affectionately. Being remembered isn’t the most important thing, anyhow. It’s what you do when you are here that’s important.
Myself, I suffer from loneliness. And I think we all feel alone. I’m looking for stories that help people deal with loneliness and help them if they are monsters: they don’t have to undertake monstrous actions. And maybe they’re not monsters.
I know I’m more on television, and I’m more recognisable than maybe even the players because they run and train, but I just stand there, and my face does all these funny things that everyone can see all the time.
When I’m out, maybe I’m looking at the fried chicken, but I know I need to order the grilled. But I’m still from the country. I love my fried food and my neck bones and all that, too.
To be one, to be united is a great thing. But to respect the right to be different is maybe even greater.
Your ups and downs in sports, I think they are as normal as daily life: One day you wake up and feel great, the next day you wake up and feel maybe less great.
I get described as ‘interesting’ a lot. People often call me odd, too. Maybe they mean ugly. Given the services of a plastic surgeon, I would get a pair of cheekbones.
In my life, I was always floating around the edge of the dark side and saying what if take it a little bit too far, and who says you have to stop there, and what’s behind the next door. Maybe you gain a wisdom from examining those things. But after a while, you get too far down in the quicksand.
I stopped making movies because I don’t like taking my clothes off. Maybe it’s realism, but in my opinion, it’s utter filth.
I think I’m far too much of a wallflower or maybe a fragile flower to be in the military.
I think in a lot of romantic comedies it ends with a kiss, and I feel like in modern day relationships, and maybe just my own experience, it starts with a kiss and then all sort of falls apart and then comes together. You’re texting. You’re wondering what’s going on. There’s no definitions, there’s no labels.
I want them to come away with discovering the music inside them. And not thinking about themselves as jazz musicians, but thinking about themselves as good human beings, striving to be a great person and maybe they’ll become a great musician.
You must take the first step. The first steps will take some effort, maybe pain. But after that, everything that has to be done is real-life movement.
I was striving to become an engineer, but something happened that made me think, ‘Maybe I can make games instead.’
As I’m getting older, I feel like maybe I need to grow up a bit.
It takes me a while to figure things out. I usually have to repeat a lesson or two – maybe three times!
There should be a point to movies. Sure, you’re giving people a diversion from the cold world for a bit, but at the same time, you pass on some facts and rules and maybe a little bit of wisdom.
The relentless pursuit of perfection has been my problem over the years. It’s maybe held me back.
Not that I want to put the entire rap music style down – I just don’t like it. And I know somewhere there’s gotta be another guy like that. There’s gotta be a guy just like that – just like me. There’s gotta be somebody, somewhere… Maybe, maybe an assassin type.
A lost of people recognize me and maybe will ask for an autograph, but it’s nothing like if Elvis would’ve done something like that, ’cause he’s so popular, or maybe The Beatles ’cause they stirred up a lot of action.
We say that our world must think of and listen to consumers, and this is true, but not too much, in the sense that if you want to change and innovate, you must also think with your own head. Maybe you make choices that the market is not ready to accept but that will be accepted in 18 or 24 months.
I know for a fact if I were a white English fighter, maybe I would have been a superstar in Britain – and the world.
I didn’t think, ‘I’d really like to work in TV; maybe I could carve out a niche where I talk to people who are somehow involved in marginal or difficult lifestyles… ‘ It was something I gravitated to very naturally as a subject area, almost instinctively, and somehow turned into a TV career without meaning to.
People say maybe we have a soul and chimpanzees don’t. I feel that it’s quite possible that if we have souls, chimpanzees have souls as well.
I have a complicated relationship with the zoo; maybe everyone does. It’s so wonderful and so sad.
I’m going to put a museum on my ranch and people keep saying, ‘That’s a huge idea.’ Yeah, it’s big, but not bigger than the average big movie. A hundred million dollars in the art world is a substantial amount of cash to do anything. That’s maybe a big gallery’s total sales for a given year.
I will get out there and train harder than anyone, five times a day sometimes. You have to be a special person to do that – like, special forces, military maybe.
When you love someone and care about them, you want what’s best for them, and it’s always the hardest thing to realize maybe you aren’t what’s best for them, how hard you try.
For every man that ever walked the Earth, except maybe the sociopaths, when it comes to talking to pretty girls… it’s just stark terror.
The stories I’m interested in are challenging ones, and maybe that requires a little bit more of you. I love my job and I want to earn the right to do it every single day.
I was rejected a lot in the early days – I think I heard the word ‘no’ nine times – and I began to think that maybe I wasn’t going to make it as a professional, let alone play for the national team.
The first CD I had was ‘Definitely Maybe’ by Oasis, and I had a tape of’ ‘Parklife’ by Blur when I was nine.
A lot of times, people are reserved or maybe scared of testing what your body is capable of. I’m not.
Peter Parker is probably the most relatable superhero – maybe ever – because he goes through something that basically everyone has to go through. Whether it’s puberty or talking to girls or doing homework, he does it in such a human way. That’s why he’s such a beloved character: because so many people can relate to him.
God bless IVF because it’s never too late to conceive any more. However, having said that, I have to point out that going through IVF is a gruelling procedure; maybe that’s why only a woman can go through it!
I don’t know what to do or where to turn in this taxation matter. Somewhere there must be a book that tells all about it, where I could go to straighten it out in my mind. But I don’t know where the book is, and maybe I couldn’t read it if I found it.
I’m a middle child, so I have middle-child syndrome. With a middle child, you always have to take in everything and adjust and maybe compromise a little bit so you’re able to see both sides of an issue. I’m also a Leo – I love astrology – so that affected me, just being a lion.
It take many a year, mon, and maybe some bloodshed must be, but righteousness someday prevail.
I do things I love doing. Sometimes that is maybe going out to have a drink with friends, going out partying or whatever.
Depression is something that doesn’t just go away. It’s just… there and you deal with it. It’s like… malaria or something. Maybe it won’t be cured, but you’ve got to take the medication you’re prescribed, and you stay out of situations that are going to trigger it.
I felt like it was inevitable that I was going to fail in life and die young. So I was frantically scrambling to document my stunts and pack my message into a bottle. I thought maybe I could be discovered after I’d died, like Van Gogh.
It turns out our brain is sensitive, maybe too sensitive, to motion. It’s a survival mechanism.
I’m fair-minded, maybe. Maybe I bend over backward to give people too much benefit of the doubt. And I’ll give credit where credit is due.
My two interests are spirituality and politics. I would mesh them in some way; maybe try to figure out the politics of spirituality, or the spirituality of politics. Or maybe come up with this really crazy naive solution for the end of civilization.
I don’t think too much about age. Maybe if you’re hurting, aching and arthritic, then you think about it a lot. But I don’t.
My strongest hope is for a cameo as a band playing in a club visited by the detectives on ‘Law & Order: SVU’ during the course of an investigation, maybe during sound check, or something, so they can force us to stop playing while they question the sound guy.
I loved school, maybe too much, really. I was summa cum laude in high school. I was driven that way.
The impression sometimes created among the public is that scientists are working away in their labs, and maybe they’re not always thinking about the implications of their work. But we are.
Looking back, I’m really happy with the choices I’ve made in my career. I know for a fact I could be wealthier. Who knows, maybe I could be more successful, maybe not. I don’t know. But just about every single thing I’ve ever done I’ve gone into with the right intentions, and that goes a long way.
Almost everyone seems to worry about something, and yet, we rarely talk about worry as a problem. Maybe that is because worry is so integrated into the way we have come to live and be in the world that we don’t even notice it.
I think high self-esteem is overrated. A little low self-esteem is actually quite good. Maybe you’re not the best, so you should work a little harder.
My father never wanted me to be a writer. He didn’t – he came to terms with it maybe two years before he died. He wanted me to be a weather girl because when I was growing up, there were very few Latinas on television, and in the early ’70s when you first started seeing Latinas on TV, they would be the weather girls.
In teaching you cannot see the fruit of a day’s work. It is invisible and remains so, maybe for twenty years.
Although Ronald Reagan was somebody I disagreed with on most ideological things, he was a friend of mine, and he was a very, very likable man. Ronald Reagan, for instance, was maybe more able to get the very rich to do the right thing sometimes.
