Once I graduated college, I did a couple of different sort of unique internship positions, if you will.

For those looking at me, meeting me for the first time, it is the body they see. I am labelled as disabled.
What works for me is a little bit of training and sensible eating. You know, the Cameron Diaz’s of the world put a lot of effort into it! But you can’t have it all – I like going out for dinner with my husband; I like meeting my mates at Starbucks!
So much the worse, it may be, for a particular meeting: but the meeting is the individual, which on evolution principles, must be sacrificed for the development of the race.
My main concern is meeting with public because my main commitment, main interest is promotion of human value, human affection, compassion and religious harmony.
Would most politicians have gone to a meeting with someone advertised as being an agent of the Russian government?
I can’t count the number of times I’ve sat in a meeting where it’s been 20 men and me.

Meeting the person you are going to be playing is very unique.
I really enjoy meeting fans.
All my collaborations happen in different ways. Sometimes it’s through a chance meeting at a festival or event, while others can happen just off the back of me liking their music and reaching out.
Progressives make money and spend money on businesses that meet needs instead of kill people! The future is in meeting needs – unto the bourgeois business of cleaning the drapes! – not spewing death and destruction with kickbacks.
There are different usage patterns – I never do email during the day. I don’t multitask well at all. I don’t know how to be in a meeting and participate and be on email at the same time. I do see some people do it more effectively. I’ve never quite figured that out.
Meeting people at my fertility doctor’s office who are going through the same things I’m going through, I thought, ‘Why not share my story?’ It’s been really emotional.
Well, a daughter is someone you’ve grown up with, right? So you know her temperament, you know what makes her angry and how to deal with that person. You’re meeting your daughter-in-law when she is an adult already and you don’t quite know what her temperament is like, so it takes time to gel.
I’ve spent a lot of years living with normal people. If I take a private jet to go to a meeting in Milan, well, that’s my business; I can do it. But I don’t live for it.
When people start talking about venture capital and finances and how to create this and do that, a lot of it, I swear, it’s like sitting in an escrow meeting when all you want to do is buy a house, and you’re signing 50 pieces of paper, but you have no idea what they’re talking about.
From meeting Robert Plant, John Bonham, and John Paul Jones, teaming up, rehearsing, playing selected gigs outside of Britain, coming back into Olympic Studios to record the first album, and then going to America, which we crack open like a nut with the debut record – all that happened, literally, within months.
I believe we should reframe our response to climate change as an imperative for growth rather than merely being a way of being green or meeting environmental commitments.
I’m not interested in meeting people’s expectations, and I’m not interested in pleasing people.
As far as getting work, no one thought I spoke English. It was absolutely ridiculous. I’d show up at a meeting and they’d be like, ‘Oh my God, you speak English! That’s so cool.’ They didn’t really know what to do with me.
One of the things that I’ve always loved to do is brainstorm ideas with friends and get together and talk about what they’re building… Essentially, my day-to-day is just going around and meeting entrepreneurs and talking to them about what they plan on launching.
I hated meeting people at bars when I was single because it’s all about the looks and the funny line.
George Bush looked into Putin’s eyes and saw his soul in the first meeting he had in Slovenia. And then in the next meeting, he realized his soul was very dark.
Being in a class with kids, meeting new people, and borrowing notes from other students – I’ve never done that before. I’ve always had to fend for myself.
I had a lot of luck in meeting great musicians who were kind enough to show me things.
Meeting everyone you wanted to know in the small surf industry, I saw how the surf trade was made up of characters that not only surfed, but were able to develop a business out of their relationship with their product and the ocean.
I used to think my job as a CEO meant managing metrics and meeting goals, but I’ve realised now that’s it’s about managing my board and employees.
I had the luxury of skipping the cabinet meeting to attend my daughter’s graduation. So many people don’t have the luxury of taking an hour away from the workplace to attend indispensable family commitments. We have to change that dynamic.
I know that meeting a black woman with a love for hockey is a bit like stumbling upon a unicorn in the woods… or a unicorn anywhere. I’m sure it’d be just as surreal finding a unicorn in downtown Chicago. But here I am.
I sat down with CBS, and we talked about me developing a show for them. At the time, I was meeting with a lot of networks. And I told them, ‘I don’t want to be acting on your show as the token black guy. I want to do something that will change a network and will change the way people view African-Americans on TV.’
Meeting all walks of life, it broadened your horizons, let’s say that.
I wear a suit most days, in part because it’s suitable for any type of meeting and in part because it takes the thought out of it.
Governments allocate enormous resources for social programs. And it is true that for many years we have had one of the best social service systems in the world. Yet we are still incapable of meeting the needs of tens of thousands of Canadian families.
Social media companies are a gold rush today, and time will tell if they survive. I have no use for them and can’t see why people waste time on them. I much prefer physical meeting with true friends, so have never used the service.
It may sound funny, but it’s true: I tried to put myself through the 12-step program. I didn’t want to attend a real meeting; my role didn’t really require that, and I feel those meetings are sort of sacred, and they’re anonymous for a reason. I tried to deal with some of my love of snacks – and I relapsed a lot.
It’s estimated that 16 million people in the U.S. have struggled with depression – and I include myself in that statistic. It’s real, and it’s not shameful, and there is help available. You can bring it to the light, you can tell the truth, you can go to a meeting, you can reach out to a friend. None of us are alone.
I work in the film business, where schmoozing is an art form, lunch hour lasts from 12:30 until 3, and every meeting takes an hour whether there’s an hour’s worth of business or not.
Personally, it was a big honor for me meeting so many families of the fallen soldiers and hearing their stories.
I’ll never forget a meeting with one publisher where they said, ‘We don’t publish books for teenage boys; teenage boys don’t read.’
I have somebody I admire and want to keep at a distance. I’ve had the opportunity to meet her a couple of times – it’s Chrissie Hynde from The Pretenders. I just am nuts about her, but I have no interest in meeting her because I just don’t think she could live up to what she’s been to me in my head.
There are a lot of musicians I’ve met on Twitter where it was like, ‘Hey, I like your music’ – and then I ended up meeting them and it turned into a friendship.
I really liked drama and being in plays, so when I was playing a character onstage and I could act like somebody else, then I wasn’t scared or nervous, but I didn’t like meeting new people when I had to be myself. That was scary.
I wasn’t part of the BeyHive before I met her, but after my experience working with her, meeting her, I’m a die-hard fan.
When my father died, my mother came back from being Mrs. Birkin to being Judy Campbell. She was a stunning actress. She came out of her shell. She was herself again: this very independent, funny, intellectual lady – and was able to perform again, which was her life before meeting my father squashed it out.
There is no situation like the open road, and seeing things completely afresh. I’m used to traveling. It’s not a question of meeting or seeing new faces particularly, or hearing new stories, but of looking at life in a different way. It’s the curtain coming up on another act.
I don’t think of it so much as the shows I did or the film sets. I mean, sometimes you’ll get a nice location, but it’s more, ‘Who am I meeting on a day-to-day basis?’ Often the rehearsals are a lot more fun than the show itself.
I suppose the biggest thing I learned is that I’m in it for the right reasons. I love my job as much now as when I first began. I still feel fully invested in every audition, every job – large or small, every appearance, every meeting with every fan.
With regard to the ballot, it is worthy of remark that no meeting has been held in favour of Reform at which the ballot has not been strongly insisted upon.
There is a profound gap between meeting a person and knowing a person, and that holds true for the difference between visiting and residing.

Oppression thrives on distance – on not actually meeting or seeing the oppressed.
I always love meeting other promoters.
We don’t make music except for the joy of making music, really – and meeting people and sharing ideas.
The black comedians meeting? Oh yeah, we hold one every year at Eddie Murphy’s house.
There’s something about marriage that is not as intensely romantic or interesting as a couple’s first meeting.
As a kid, I used to tell all these stories. I remember meeting a childhood friend, and we were talking. We remembered that I had made up this story about going to Mars. And she looked at me and said, ‘I didn’t sleep for a week after that!’
I love it when I surprise photographers that, despite the fact that I am deaf, I am capable of meeting their vision. I love it that I can read their body language and know what they do not like and what they do like.
Meeting people who want to start a charity, help out their families, or raise money for a good cause has been really fun.
One thing we’ve talked a lot about, even in the first leadership meeting, was, what’s the purpose of our leadership team? The framework we came up with is the notion that our purpose is to bring clarity, alignment and intensity.
Making a strong first impression is as important as ever, especially when meeting face-to-face.
I finished my junior year of high school and flew out to Los Angeles. I didn’t know the difference between a manager and an agent. But I got here and just started hustling and meeting anyone I could.
I’m really not a party person. I’m in the business of working with 100 people every day, so I don’t revel in meeting a roomful of people in my leisure time.
I developed in my head that I’m never any better than my last concert or the last time I played, so it’s like an audition each time. You get nervous just before going onstage. I still have that, but I think it’s more like concern. You’re concerned about the people – like meeting your in-laws for the first time.
I started doing flats because women would always apologize for wearing them when they met me, as if they had to be in heels when meeting a shoe designer.
I actually had the pleasure of meeting David Bowie at his 50th birthday party in New York City. I handed him the cassette of ‘Eight Arms to Hold You,’ which I had just got an advance of that day. He very graciously thanked me and tucked it into his jacket pocket.
Meeting my wife Amanda was the best thing that could ever have happened to me. She wasn’t going to let me screw around my life anymore, so I stopped drinking and started behaving like a decent human being.
I suppose meeting people whether it’s in real life and actually shaking their flesh and blood hand or shaking the mystical hand of the character all rub off on you in some way.
I refuse to work evenings or weekends. If a script sees my character meeting for dinner, I put a line through the words and make them meet for lunch.
Soon after the financial crisis of 2008, I was at a meeting in Washington with a group of U.S. senators. They had invited me to provide a point of view on new regulation; regulation aimed at ensuring we never have to go through the events of 2008 ever again.
We’ve talked with over a dozen VCs and angel investors over the years. But we’ve never clicked with any of them until Andreessen. During our initial meeting, we were bouncing ideas around about where Imgur could go.
I love meeting interesting people and doing things with them.
If we are all in agreement on the decision – then I propose we postpone further discussion of this matter until our next meeting to give ourselves time to develop disagreement and perhaps gain some understanding of what the decision is all about.
Every weekend I would take a train to Delhi and sneak into startup events. I really enjoyed meeting entrepreneurs who were solving big problems. They were way smarter than me. I knew this is where I had to be.
I don’t have the panic I used to have, meeting people who are androgynous, but when you meet someone whose identity is unclear, that throws your own identity into flux because the way we treat each other is very gendered.
I eventually moved to New York with just a couple unpaid internships. Meeting people and going to go the Upright Citizens Brigade, I was able to get a lot of connections, find some odd jobs, and be taken more seriously.
I decided to host a couple of the ‘In The Life’ programs. And I did that really as a result of meeting a lot of young gay people in the Midwest who really had nothing to relate to. At least I felt this program is presenting them with some options.
As we talk about the need to foster academic achievement, we must recognize and reward those who strive academically, just as we honor athletic champions. Meeting the President of the United States is just the honor we should bestow on our academic champions.
Because I didn’t go to graduate school or have mentorship out of college, meeting other playwrights and developing those friendships as a result of being a ‘grown up’ playwright – that’s become an essential community for me. My contemporaries are all my mentors whether they know it or not.
The cool thing about working and meeting a lot of people through your acting is that you never know who you might work with, in the future.
It took three years from talking about it, to meeting with Wendie Wilson-Miller from ‘Gifted Journeys’ Surrogacy, to finding the right doctor, to doing the egg retrieval and finding the right surrogate.
People still struggle with this notion of gifted writers somehow being in touch with a higher power, but it’s all about showing up and doing the job, meeting deadlines, working hard.
All too often, a corporate innovation initiative starts and ends with a board meeting mandate to the CEO followed by a series of memos to the staff, with lots of posters and one-day workshops. This typically creates ‘innovation theater’ but very little innovation.
There were a lot of signs being thrown at me, a lot of angels I was meeting, inspiring me to get back into show business.
There is nothing I hate more than meeting someone who has forgotten the art of conversing.
If I have a meeting or need to look more done up, the thing I can always do is a cat eye.

After ‘Kidulthood,’ I was called in to a meeting and told that I didn’t write women very well. I was very annoyed.
One day I may be meeting you and hearing how you’ve changed your life by saying, ‘Farewell to Fat’.
It’s always great to have a purpose of a meeting and an ending for it, but it’s even more important to be present and have an engagement on the topic you’re doing, to create an environment and energy around that meeting, so everybody goes from there, ‘That’s great; we can take it forward!’
The problem is too often they are boring, and boring in a meeting happens for the same reason as in a book or movie – when there is not enough compelling tension. Meetings should be intense.
On August 28, 2010, Fox News messiah Glenn Beck hosted a ‘Restoring Honor’ revival meeting featuring sexy guest star Sarah Palin, much as Bob Hope would roll out Raquel Welch in white go-go boots on his U.S.O. tours to give our fighting men a morale lift in their khakis.
My grandmother knew J.F.K. and L.B.J. That was her world. I enjoy meeting interesting people. But that’s not my world.
At the decisive Boston town meeting of Nov. 29, 1773, while ships loaded with cargo from the East India Company idled in the harbor, Thomas Young was the first and only speaker to propose that the best way to protest the new Tea Act was to dump the tea into the water.
You could grow up in Germany in the postwar years without ever meeting a Jewish person. There were small communities in Frankfurt or Berlin, but in a provincial town in south Germany, Jewish people didn’t exist.
Taken as a whole, Europe’s share of world output is projected to fall by almost a third in the next two decades. This is the competitiveness challenge – and much of our weakness in meeting it is self-inflicted. Complex rules restricting our labour markets are not some naturally occurring phenomenon.
Which, the first meeting with anybody is, you know, everybody is on their best behavior. It’s only after you get to know them for a while that you figure out.
Education, whatever else it should or should not be, must be an inoculation against the poisons of life and an adequate equipment in knowledge and skill for meeting the chances of life.
People are not just going to bars and meeting people; they’re connecting through social media.
The key is that your children are aware that you love them a lot, and that you are there when they really, really need you. If a kid was ill, I would simply leave a meeting and go home.
Going home, spending time with the family, I feel they’re my friends as well, all of them. I look forward to meeting any one of them for a coffee, and when we all get together, I just love it.
I hoped the dramatic power of the play would rest on that tension between elegant structure – the underlying plan is that you see the first and last meeting of every couple in the play – and inelegant emotion.
Honest good humor is the oil and wine of a merry meeting, and there is no jovial companionship equal to that where the jokes are rather small and laughter abundant.
In life and in movies, it’s a similar challenge, where you have expectations, and you end up in situations that are not meeting your expectations.
I find meeting someone that you fall in love with and are going to be with for the rest of your life a miracle.
Meetings with no goal, also known as ‘coffee shop’ meetings, can be huge time wasters if you’re not efficient with them. ‘Always know why you’re meeting, and make sure it’s important – try to keep them to 30 minutes, max.
Well, on tour I eat terribly, so I balance that by running a lot. And then I started to run with my fans in certain cities. It sounds very nerdy and un-rock n’ roll, but I like it. It’s fun, and it’s better than meeting fans in weird, awkward circumstances. So I take them running with me.
Our goal is to put news where it earns attention, where readers can access it on every device and interact with it. We’re meeting our clients’ audiences where they are instead of asking them to come to us. Increasingly, that means hosting the content on social blogging sites like Medium.
I had four fantastic years on ‘Strictly’ and they were honestly the best moments of my life – meeting friends, just seeing the whole team work.
Get out there and meet people, and that will lead to meeting other people. Look around; see if there’s anyone hiding in plain sight. There may be friends that become more than friends.
I was at a meeting two years ago in Beijing, and I passed a bunch of women who were marching in a protest. Their signs were probably saying something I wouldn’t have agreed with at all. But I was so glad to see women marching. And it’s happening all over the world.
I’m a fan of meeting readers face to face, at reader events, where we’re able to sit down and take some time to talk.
I like meeting and connecting with readers.
A man writing a letter is a man in the act of thinking, and it was an exercise Reagan obviously enjoyed. After his first meeting with Gorbachev, for example, he sent a ‘Dear Murph’ letter about it to his old friend George Murphy, a former senator and actor who had once played Reagan’s father in a film.
J. Edgar Hoover very famously denied the existence of organized crime up until the Appalachian Meeting, I think, in 1957. It was interesting to me that he clearly had to know that there was such a thing as organized crime and organized criminals as far back as the ’20s.
I love meeting our users and partners and talking to them about how ClassPass has made an impact.
An employee, even a very junior person, if they can articulately summarize a meeting, if they can put together a presentation and even emails that are really salient and to the point, they are so valued.
I’ve got my advanced scuba diving license. I’m playing tennis and exercising. I ride my bike everywhere. I’ve been finding new things. I’ve been more creative in music and doing different videos. And just meeting different people and being around and present. I’m wonderful when I’m just on nothing.
Honestly, I think people change after meeting someone you love.
It’s not the first time that I speak with American journalists. I’ve had meetings with many different newspapers and stations, and I’ve ha – never had a problem with meeting with American journalists.
My music is inspired by where I am and what I’m feeling at the time. Traveling and meeting new people is also incredibly inspiring to me.
When meeting difficult situations, one should dash forward bravely and with joy.
A solid family, as they say. They join me on location if they have a chance, but I can also be home three or four months doing nothing, so I probably see my kids more than people who work constantly all year long. If that changes, we’ll have to have a family meeting.
The greatest threat facing humanity is a radical Islamist regime meeting up with nuclear weapons.
I had my heart set on becoming an English teacher, but stumbled into acting after meeting a theatrical agent in my dad’s restaurant in San Diego.
When I was mayor of Tulsa, Tulsa County was in nonattainment of the 1979 ozone NAAQS, so I have seen firsthand the economic impacts associated with the challenges of attainment and the legacy of EPA intervention that continues long after meeting the standard.

Always give a word or sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, or even a stranger, if in a lonely place.

I want to thank all of the fans and media who made playing in the NFL such a wonderful experience. I have had the pleasure of meeting many of them.
Almost all politicians are able to have a great one-on-one meeting. But I’m not interested in the candidate who can have a great meeting. I’m interested in the person who can make the right decisions.
Currently, I am overseeing the construction of the new Trump Tower in Chicago. I am involved in meeting with the construction crews, architects and sales teams. I am learning a lot and working with some of the best in the business.
To me, meeting Buddy Guy was like meeting a piece of history.
There’s this common perception that having a famous last name is all you need. A surname may get you a meeting, but if there’s no talent you won’t get the part.

I’m ecstatic: meeting Ranbir was like a dream come true for me, and to perform and be praised by him is like an icing on the cake. This memory, I would cherish for my entire life.
How comedic are squirrels? We don’t have squirrels in Australia. The first time I saw a squirrel was at a meeting at Disney.
It’s really simple: If you’re not meeting the wants and needs of the customer, you’re done. There’s not a lot of loyalty here.
Obviously, you make preparations before you engage in any meeting.
Growing up in Canada, I used to love a walk in the early morning, when the streets are quiet and the sun was shining. Walking in the morning is still very refreshing… and if I can, I will walk to my first meeting or appointment.
I don’t go out anywhere. I don’t go to nightclubs, so meeting somebody in the nightclub is out of question.
The best part appearing in ‘Jersey Girl’ was meeting my idol Jennifer Lopez.
Over the years, from serving in the CIA to sitting on non-profit boards, I have observed first-hand what the addition of even one woman to a meeting or to a decision-making body can do. Put simply, in very many instances, group dynamics improve markedly.
Ted Turner sailed into the meeting, and I mean sailed. He holds himself as if he were at the helm of his sailboat, in the process of winning the race.

I was surprised to see the meeting was of Communists and the whole meeting was along Communist lines.
I was having trouble making ends meet, and my beginnings weren’t meeting either.
One thing that is almost always said to me is, I grew up with you. They are meeting me and feel that they actually grew up with me. I was with them during their play hours and thinking hours. I was a part of their childhoods. That’s one of the most amazing things.
When I took over the Writers’ Workshop, it was one little class and there were eight students. All of them, brilliantly untalented… I had an absolute vision after the first workshop meeting.
My dad and grandpa were in the army and as a country singer you’re constantly playing at military bases all across the country and meeting soldiers and their families and hearing their stories.
Paul Ryan and Mr. Trump have had a conversation, and they continue to develop that relationship. They had a great meeting in Washington, D.C., where they talk about what was important to both of them. They agree on many issues.
I remember meeting President Obama and looking at him, thinking, ‘Damn, this dude is really our president. He really went out and did it!’ If you look at stories like that, and other stories that I’m sure you could compare to, it’s just about freeing your mind and taking those guards down.
Like anyone from any party who has stood for election, I’ve often had the depressing experience of meeting an 18- or 19-year-old new voter on the doorstep and being told: ‘I’m not interested in voting’ or ‘none of this matters to me.’
India is the meeting place of the religions and among these Hinduism alone is by itself a vast and complex thing, not so much a religion as a great diversified and yet subtly unified mass of spiritual thought, realization and aspiration.
I’ve got mates who have got married through meeting on Internet dating sites, so it really can work out – even if sometimes it does go disastrously wrong.
You can’t run this nation like a town meeting.
What was so extraordinary to me about going through this box of my mother’s letters and diaries was meeting my mother not as my mother, but as a real person. And what breaks my heart is that I had no idea how self-aware she was and how protective of me she was.
It’s lack of faith that makes people afraid of meeting challenges, and I believed in myself.
I find it inconceivable that we’re meeting for five and a half days, and there isn’t one moment on the agenda to deal with the greatest crisis we’ve ever had in the church since 1789.
I went to see President Nixon at the White House. It wasn’t difficult to get a meeting because I was heavyweight champion of the world.

I’m not precisely saying that a really good board meeting at the MLA (Museums, Libraries and Archives Coucil) makes me want to go and write poetry, but there is a pleasure in doing that sort of thing well.
Basically, I’m a really bad interviewer. I love meeting celebrities, but then I get a bit bored. Once you meet them you thing, ‘really, what an ordinary person’.
Whatever causes you to drop your plan forward and open to your vision, your own, deeply personal vision of what your life could be at its very best, that’s what I call meeting your rhinoceros.
I’m a really big fan of meeting the fans. It’s great to get feedback.
The credibility comes before you get on air. It comes with coming to the production meeting and having ideas and being prepared and being up on everything that’s going on, being professional, and showing up every day and working hard. I think that’s where you build the credibility and the respect.
As a woman, and as a working mom trying to get things done, you find yourself meeting adversity a lot, but you never talk about it because you don’t want to bring attention to it. You don’t want to go there.

President Obama and I both believe we don’t have time for a meeting anywhere of the Flat Earth Society.
The wine I produce is not for keeping. It’s the wine you want when meeting friends for a game of cards.
I had to babysit a lot when I was in high school, and I missed a lot of parties. I felt this longing, like, ‘Oh no, I’m going to miss meeting the love of my life at that party!’ I feel like that’s very Mary Katherine Gallagher.
I wake up every morning, and life is different. I’ve got a gig or a shoot. Flying here, flying there. Meeting wicked people. Going to amazing places. I’m relishing it.
I love traveling. I love meeting people. I love performing, but it’s hard to be gone and to not have a real life and to just get the emotional love that you need from the people you’re traveling with.
Whenever I get an audition to do something that is sci-fi-related, it makes me really happy because I realize that I can continue doing the work that I’m doing and continue meeting people all over the world. It does baffle my management team sometimes, though!

Not having sub-governance would be like anyone who owns USD being able to walk into a Google shareholder meeting and voting without owning Google stock just because Google shares happen to be denominated in USD.
State-sanctioned marriage is a civil contract, period. A contract is not a judgment of moral value. It is a legal agreement between two parties that testifies to a meeting of minds between those consenting entities. It is not a religious act or rite and so has nothing to do with Adam and Eve or Steve or even Harvey.
I did this TV show, which was my first job ever. It wasn’t a real acting part. It was like this promo for this sitcom and the main actress was meeting three different real people and then she was going to decide who was going to be on the episode.
I think the most important thing that comes out of the meeting between Churchill and Roosevelt in early 1942 is a commitment on Roosevelt’s part to fight Europe first. To struggle first against Germany and put Japan and the Pacific as a secondary theatre in the conflict. And this is what Churchill was after.
My mom doesn’t post on Facebook, but she’ll tell anyone within about the first five minutes of meeting them about my sister and I, in whatever way she can.

We had our first meeting yesterday, and we just laughed all the way through, so if we can bottle that, then I’ll be happy. We just get on, and that’s half the battle.
I used to work as a volunteer in a hospice, but I don’t have any nursing skills or cooking skills or anything, so I was what they call an escort.

When you have a small, balanced squad, you can work better. First of all everyone is involved in every squad list, a meeting can be a good training session.
I don’t want to stand in front of a whole lot of fakeys. If I’m going to meet someone and say hello, I want to feel like I’m really meeting that person, not a masked version. I want to give that to people when they meet me. You don’t have to like it. I’m not looking for you to like it; I’m looking to be myself.
I think fans going to concerts expect more today in terms of meeting and things. It’s cool – I get it because of how the Internet has made things much more personal for fans to follow with Facebook, Twitter and everything – but I also think it’s kind of hindering because it takes from the music in a way.
I spend plenty of time in London and it doesn’t scare me, but it’s a lonely place, even if you’ve got friends there. My job takes me all around the world, meeting lots of interesting people. But I think if I couldn’t get home, if I couldn’t get back to what I consider my real life I’d be frightened.

So often at home in the West Village, I’m like, ‘Why aren’t I allowed a horse?’ I would keep a horse in a stable in my apartment, and I would fit him with rubber shoes, and we’d just roll him out. If I needed to go to a meeting somewhere, I’d just get on my horse and go across town.
I’ve heard from CEOs of major corporations and members of Congress talk about their spouses getting mad at them when they’re home because they’re spaced out and thinking about work. It’s so easy for all of us to have our mind on the last meeting or the next one.
I find myself more affected by music the more I do it. Particularly when you’re touring, and you’re in the bus, and you’re listening to loads of music.

New York is the meeting place of the peoples, the only city where you can hardly find a typical American.
I went to one AA meeting and I got asked for an autograph.

If you want to be more productive, then start at the start: get there on time.

A lot of skaters hole themselves up in hotels and focus – and that’s great, and that may work for them. But for me, having the Olympic experience was as great as winning the medal.

Having a dad in the service was helpful. I was forever meeting new kids, going to new schools, moving to new neighborhoods. I was encouraged when I attended the American School in Germany.

Design is so critical it should be on the agenda of every meeting in every single department.

Now it’s like, I’ll go to Starbucks, or I’ll go to the mall or anywhere, and lots of people will recognize me, and I’m like, ‘Oh, wow, this is actually a thing now; this is happening.’ It can get a little bit crazy at times, but I love meeting people, and people shouldn’t feel scared to come up to me and say ‘Hi.’
I’ve loved traveling around the country and meeting people at book signings.
My first audition as a little girl was ‘Interview with the Vampire’ for Kirsten Dunst’s part. Back then, they were meeting all different kinds of girls, and I was one of them.

The sad thing is that I feel so boring because ‘Twilight’ is literally how every conversation I have these days begins – whether it’s someone I’m meeting for the first time or someone I just haven’t seen in a while. The first thing I want to say to them is, ‘It’s insane! And, as a person, I can’t do anything!’

My plan was to go to New York and do some theatre, and then I got the script for ‘Psych.’ I was like, ‘Ahh – just as I thought I was out, you pulled me back in!’ I had a great meeting with the show creator and we laid out the parameters to make the show work: what I would do, what he would let me do.

With couture, you’re going right to the consumer, and that’s something we learned from doing trunk shows. You’re meeting the client; you’re finding out what they like and what they don’t like. You’ve really got your customer there in front of you, so you know what works and what doesn’t.

Your best ideas, those eureka moments that turn the world upside down, seldom come when you’re juggling emails, rushing to meet the 5 P.M. deadline or straining to make your voice heard in a high-stress meeting. They come when you’re walking the dog, soaking in the bath or swinging in a hammock.
On a perfect weekend, I’ll stay in bed until I am rested, though I am not someone who sleeps late. Then I’ll go for a run through the parks nearby, even if it is frosty and cold, and I love meeting friends for brunch. You know you are truly on a day off if you have time to do brunch.

After spending time in the East and meeting with ordinary Afghans there, it’s hard to imagine how a future Afghan government will retain control of provinces such as Khost or Paktia once U.S. forces are gone.

I’m far from being reclusive. I have 30- or 40-year friendships that I prefer to meeting new people. I go to an occasional party, but just because I don’t go to a lot of events, and I’m not out in public all the time doesn’t mean I’m anti-social or a recluse.
Tyra the businesswoman is very close to – and I hate third person, but you said it, oh, chiiild, you said it – but me the businessperson and me the person: very similar. I can be in a business meeting and be all ‘Wooo!’ and ‘Oh, child!’ and still be talking revenues and profits and cash flows.
From its conception and that one and only meeting, ‘HITNRUN’ took about 90 days to prepare its release. If that’s what freedom feels like, ‘HITNRUN’ is what it sounds like.

The worst thing for a kid is to move around and switch schools, but as an actor, you go from job to job, meeting strangers and becoming very close right away. I’ve become adept at that.
We need to assure that we are nurturing our children and meeting their every need in this violent world.
The Gmail app is definitely the app I use the most. I am always running from meeting to meeting, so it keeps me up-to-date with everything going on. I actually e-mail more often from my iPhone than my laptop, so having a nicely designed e-mail app is really important.
I think that young Australians ought to be taking language education much more seriously. I mean, you know, every day I’m meeting people with expertise, ability and talent in fields where I want to learn so much more; science, for example.
Then I contacted Ken, then he called me back, then we had a great meeting. Then he called and asked if I would come back to the show. Which was awesome.

From that first meeting, I totally loved working with Joey, it was a real collaboration.
Later, I made a movie with him, ‘That Touch of Mink,’ and we became good friends but any woman’s initial meeting with Cary is right up there with the big moments of her world history.
I do my workouts in the morning, and often I’ll take someone from my team. The person I’m meeting with can pick the class, whether it’s a spin or barre class, or going for a power walk. It’s hard to run and talk – I haven’t mastered that yet.

Sonny and another Hells Angel who was at the meeting thought they were beyond a little patch so they headed down to a local tattoo shop in Oakland and were the first to get the famous One Percent tattoos.
When people talk about the impact of mobile dating, everyone focuses on real-time meeting – this idea that my pocket will vibrate every time a hot girl walks by. That’s important. But it’s not transformative.
When you get a question like, ‘Did you like meeting Her Majesty?’ ‘No, I thought she was a slob.’ I mean, what are you going to say… The mischief comes into me when I’m doing a Q&A, I’m 9 years old again. I don’t get mad. I do get offended.
I get to work at about 7:30 or 8 unless I have a breakfast meeting.
I’m meeting people I never would have met at Brown and doing things I couldn’t do because of basketball.

I don’t have memories of Ethiopia as a child. I didn’t learn about Ethiopian culture until after I moved to New York and started meeting people from the Ethiopian community.

Like any small business owner, I experienced the pressures of building a company from the ground up – developing a business plan, balancing the books, meeting payroll and building a customer base.

Wherever I go meeting the public… spreading a message of human values, spreading a message of harmony, is the most important thing.
If the world were an orange with 18 segments meeting at the top (the North Pole), roughly 8 of them would be in Russia, Canada would have 4, Denmark 2, and Norway, Sweden, and the U.S. just one apiece. Only a sliver of Alaska, on the Beaufort Sea, lies above the Arctic Circle.
When you’re competing, you don’t have the choice of what the weather will be like. It really doesn’t affect me. I ran one of my fastest times in the New York Diamond League meeting last year. It was raining pretty hard then.

I want you to know that I don’t have any right, Malawi has no right to stop any president from coming to an African Union summit because that is an African Union meeting.

Good companies are always fundraising. Whether you’re meeting people or considering firms, you’re always fundraising.
I love meeting people, and I know it’s so difficult for people to come up to me and introduce themselves, so when they do, I’ll grab them and hug them. It makes their day, you know? I love that, and I get positive energy from that.
This work is the result of a meeting of minds from two of the most successful men in their respective fields.
My kids miss me when I’m away, but I don’t mind living out of a suitcase. The U.K., U.S., France, Germany, Iraq… it’s such a thrill meeting people of different cultures, learning about and from them. It’s changed my perception about life, humanity and spirituality.
I’ve found that there’s a lot to invigorate in any country or destination – it’s all about how you look at it. I’ve never really had any difficulties anywhere I’ve been. As an athlete, I used to enjoy being on the road and meeting people.
She says that I wore some pretty sexy leather pants to that first meeting, but I don’t remember.
I think that you may find that Tamera’s a little more vibrant and energetic, but I’m much more likely to go up to a person and say, ‘Hi, I’m Tia, nice to meet you.’ Whereas Tamera is like… well… she’s a little shy. She’s down to earth. I’m more extroverted and she’s more introverted when meeting people.
I love meeting people who’ve read my books. The prime reason to be on the planet is to make things I can show to other people: paintings, books, movies.

I served 10 years on the U.S. House Intelligence Committee, and I had the distinct privilege of meeting with real U.S. spies throughout the globe.
I was pretty young when my father was prime minister, so it wasn’t really a big part of my life. My folks were away a lot, meeting foreign dignitaries and that sort of thing, but it never struck me as odd. If anything it allowed me to get into all sorts of mischief.
I cycle, especially in warm weather. If I have a meeting in town, I would rather cycle than go by car.
When you start in life, if you find you are wrongly placed, don’t hesitate to change, but don’t change because troubles come up and difficulties arise. You must meet and overcome and conquer them. And in meeting and overcoming and conquering them, you will make yourself stronger for the future.

Studio 54 made Halloween in Hollywood look like a PTA meeting.
I always seem to have a good time when I’m interviewed. I really enjoy the whole process of meeting another person and having that exchange, but you know, if I’d read all my press collectively, I know I’d just say, ‘Well, I don’t think I’ll ever be interviewed again, thanks very much!’
The voice I have now, I got the first time I sang in a movement meeting, after I got out of jail… and I’d never heard it before in my life.

Prior to getting into music, I interacted with, on a daily basis, about 5-10 percent of the people that I’ve interacted with since then.

The table is a meeting place, a gathering ground, the source of sustenance and nourishment, festivity, safety, and satisfaction. A person cooking is a person giving: Even the simplest food is a gift.

The green-light meeting, when I first started at Paramount, would consist of maybe three or four of us in a room. Perhaps two or three of us would have read the script under discussion.
People regularly practice playing a sport like golf or basketball – but few people think about ‘practicing being successful.’ I had practiced meeting the Queen of England – what I would wear, how I would stand, the handshake – so when I did meet her, I was comfortable – for I had practiced the moment for years.
The best thing about being on tour is meeting the fans.
I can recall an instance where I was in a meeting at work giving a presentation in front of my board of directors. I was taking questions at the end and someone asks, ‘Is that your hair real?’ The man then reached out and started stroking my hair. It was completely bizarre to me.

A single moment spent in a business meeting or at a pub is more than enough to reveal the basic human truth that we are all faking it most of the time.
In college, I was a fiercely committed Democrat – a meeting with Jack Kemp, then Secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development, challenged my blind partisanship.
I only met Margaret Thatcher twice. The thing that I thought about meeting her was how extraordinarily intelligent she was. You really had to be on your game; otherwise, she’d make mincemeat of you.

I’m a great believer in the novelist being ‘on the scene,’ reporting, traveling, meeting all sorts of people.

You can’t treat an illness with cosmetic surgery, and that’s why it would be great if there were qualified therapists in plastic surgeons’ offices, and that people would go to a therapeutic meeting before plastic surgery. I think that should be part of the FDA requirement.
Meeting the body’s micronutrient needs helps to suppress food cravings, and high-nutrient foods do not produce dangerous, addictive craving.
I lived in London for a long time, and that’s a pretty white town.

I hate politics, hate deals, and deal-making, hate meeting with attorneys and agents.
It’s always been easy with Mark, he’s a rock fan and we speak the same language. He’s a big Beatles fan too. We worked a lot via CLI calls, though only meeting up once every couple of months.
The reason I make music is so that I can influence people and inspire people, but I also want to make music that I feel happy about and that I feel is good. The challenge, which is why it’s worth keeping going, is to constantly strive to figure out where the meeting place is.
A show is good when there is a meeting of time and space, when time and space become irrelevant.
Orrin Hatch was the keynote speaker at the last meeting of the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists. He sought me out because he was a fan. I was thinking he had confused me with someone else.
When I first joined Google in October of 2005, I was warned that I shouldn’t be offended if people were doing their e-mails while a meeting was going on.

The interview is not over when the meeting is over. Never forget that.
If power lies more and more in the hands of corporations rather than governments, the most effective way to be political is not to cast one’s vote at the ballot box, but to do so at the supermarket or at a shareholders’ meeting. When provoked, corporations respond.
There’s a book called ‘The Shack’ – it had a lot to do with me coming full circle, meeting my birth mother. Awhile back, my birth mom and my adopted mom came to my show together, and it was pretty surreal.
There is no meeting of minds, no point of understanding with such terror. Just a choice: Defeat it or be defeated by it. And defeat it we must.

When I was in South Africa, I was meeting with people who never heard of Lego bricks. And yet, when I was like, ‘Here they are,’ they immediately got it. They saw the appeal, were snapping bricks and creating their little creations right there immediately.
I wouldn’t mind if I had to travel every single day. I love meeting new people and experiencing new things, making new connections with people in different places.

I love to have no plans. It is amazing where your day can turn when you have no plans: meeting people or just going to a little pub on the side of the road.
Funnily enough, of course I’ve always thought B was amazing, but I’ve never been, like, ‘Beyhive status’… until actually meeting her. I would honestly drop anything I’m doing to work for her again. Not just because of who she is but because of my experience with her filming for two days.
We toured the U.S. and Canada for two years, which was a lot of fun. It was very much a do-it-yourself, punk-rock ethic of booking your own shows, sometimes sleeping on the floor of the club you had played or meeting folks that would take you in, or sleeping on the side of the road or at rest stops in the car.
I’ve never been in a focus-group meeting. I wonder how many anchors can say that.

Out of fifty mathematical papers presented in brief at such a meeting, it is a rare mathematician indeed who really understands what more than half a dozen are about.

I loved everything about show business, meeting the stars, the whole ambience. I was living every young kid’s dream. I was told a pop singer’s life was three years, but I was still making money seven years later.
A green-light meeting is when the decision is made finally whether or not to make a given picture.
Yes, the meeting of dear friends atones for the regret of separation; and like it so much enhances affection, that after absence one wonders how one has been able to stay away from them so long.
No one over thirty-five is worth meeting who has not something to teach us, – something more than we could learn for ourselves, from a book.

I get a thrill meeting kids who are into alternative music.
If you go to talk to Disney about anything related to Mickey Mouse, if you can even get the meeting, you’re going to get 50 people in that room. That is the crown jewel of their brand, and so they protect it. And so for better or worse, the crown jewel of my legacy still remains Steve Urkel and Stefan Urquelle.
I got a job with a law firm in Portland after a couple of years with Senator Muskie. But by then, my interest in politics had been sparked, through meeting Senator Muskie, through seeing what he did.

I lead a simple life. I feed the fish. I walk the dogs. I cook dinner. Occasionally I take a meeting.

I’m kind of a gypsy, so I love living out of a suitcase and going from place to place meeting people.
I don’t have any regrets, because I think life is like a creek. It kind of meanders along, and you instinctively do the things you are meant to do. There’s no great plan except doing really good scripts, meeting great filmmakers. And I have to have something that I can bring to the role.
It was so much fun being in the Olympic Village and meeting all the athletes.
And so there I was living in California from Brooklyn, New York, and it was this whole new world for me and I was meeting vegetarians. I thought, let me try this vegetarian thing. I got really into that.
I loved planning ‘The Tyra Show’ more than actually having to do it. I loved coming up with show ideas, honing each program and crafting it. I’m more excited being in a meeting than being on TV.
We were all thrown together on this show very rapidly, there was casting then a few days later a meeting where we all got to read the scripts and meet each other. Literally days after that we were on our way to Dallas.
After talking to people and meeting them every day, I realize that a song can be written from one perspective with an objective in mind. What is crazy about it is that many different people can take one song a totally different way. That is so cool, since music is a universal thing and a very personal thing.
It’s different to have your head coach be in the offensive meeting room going through every play, every detail to every guy, telling them why they need to run this way or what this concept is.
When I was playing, I always preferred to be meeting a side like the Faroe Isles or San Marino early doors. Do things right in those games, and you knew you would get six points on the board, at least be up and running and challenging in the group.
I never really planned a career. I’ve tried to avoid it. I’ve tried to do this stuff I felt for, the stuff I like. So, I’ve just been meeting these fantastic directors who’ve offered me a variation of different parts and different films.
I remember a big meeting with the hosiery trade in Harold’s ministerial room.
I am prepared to meet my Maker. Whether my Maker is prepared for the great ordeal of meeting me is another matter.

One of things I like about looking at pictures when you’re young and also meeting back with old friends you haven’t seen in a long time is, for me, it’s a glimpse of who I was.
I was in Vienna in August 1968 for a meeting of the International Federation of Multiple Sclerosis Societies, of which I was co-founder, and we wanted a 20th country to join. They asked for a volunteer to go to Prague to get Czechoslovakia to do it, and my hand always goes up first.
I think especially older people, and I count myself one, in the business – people get to know who you really are. So there comes a time when you can’t just go in and audition without everybody knowing exactly how you’ve brought up your kids, what you said at the meeting, what kind of food you cook.
I have used dating apps a couple of times in the past and met people, but it is a difficult thing because you’re meeting someone who you really don’t know and you have no link to. I have friends who have had great relationships after meeting on Tinder or Bumble, so I’d never say never, but it hasn’t worked for me.
Meeting Kanye West was a blessing.
My first real break was meeting my manager, Julie Gibson. She’s the one that introduced me to Ford and Innovative and got me started.

It’s a terrific… you can’t put it down. So I phoned him back and I said I’d love to do it. I went over to Paris for a meeting, and we just talked very generally about the approach.
