When I was a young artist, and I would go look at other artists’ career retrospectives, and I was often disappointed with the lack of story line… What was missing to me was the story of where the artist came from and how they got to where they were.
Robert Gober

Frank McCourt

William Shakespeare

Tom Bissell
Am I going to regret leaving Wall Street? No. Will I regret missing the beginning of the Internet? Yes.
Jeff Bezos
Have you killed anyone?” she asked quickly. “What? Did you miss what I said, about turning murder into an art form?” “But you haven’t actually killed anyone yet, have you? I read your file.” He glowered. “Technically, yeah, all right, maybe I haven’t
Derek Landy
It is certain that most who concentrate upon achievement miss life.
Michael Joseph Oakeshott
Mothers are the only race of people that speak the same tongue. A mother in Manchuria could converse with a mother in Nebraska and never miss a word.
Will Rogers
I think you miss out on a lot of stuff when you’re so protected and isolated.
Jennifer Aniston
Now as he watched Katie toying with a ring that wasn’t there, he felt his old investigative instincts kick in. There’d been a husband, he thought; her husband was the missing element. Either she was still married or she wasn’t, but he had an undeniable hunch that Katie was still afraid of him.
Nicholas Sparks
You two were in a cave together?’ said Miss Simpkins in horror. ‘Yes,’ said Kate, ‘and it was very, very dark.
Kenneth Oppel
Who works for glory misses oft the goal;
Who works for money coins his very soul
Work for the work’s sake, then, and it may be,
That this thing shall be added unto thee.
Kenyon Cox
But we are almost certainly going to miss our [global warming] deadline. We cannot get the 10 lost years back, and by the time a new global agreement to replace the Kyoto accord is negotiated and put into effect, there will probably not be enough time left to stop the warming short of the point where we must not go.
Gwynne Dyer
He stopped and looked back at me “I love you too Pagan. I’ll miss you. In every life.
Abbi Glines
I remember seeing a photograph of myself en pointe with my hand over my head and the other hand turned in under my breast curtseying. I took dance lessons at Miss Debbie’s Dance Studio, and she put this picture of me in the storefront window. I was so unbelievably humiliated by the sight of myself.
Lisa Yuskavage
So miss him. Send him some love and light every time you think about him, then drop it.
Elizabeth Gilbert
Missing pieces do more than complete the puzzle, they fill in an empty space.
Luanne Rice
The cemetery has … an inscription: ‘Though I walk through the Valley of the Shadow of Death I will Fear No Evil, For Thou Art With Me.’ Yes, it does feel deceptively safer with two; but Thou is a slippery character. Every Thou I’ve known has had a way of going missing.
Margaret Atwood
I would like to think that the level of aggressiveness in law enforcement will remain the same, when you’re talking about things like keeping the markets fair and government honest. I don’t foresee any departure from that, unless I’m missing something big.
Preet Bharara
With this blistering salvo of poetic gutshots Lawson has proven himself Bizarro’s true bard, its mad laureate. Switching from dark whimsy to retina-blast shock to political outrage without missing a beat, The Troublesome Amputee is a powerful collection of pitch-black verse.
Jeremy Robert Johnson
I don’t try for strikeouts, but batters just swing and miss. I’d exchange strikeouts for more innings. As a starter, my job is to go deep into the game. When you get strikeouts, you throw a lot of pitches and sometimes you come out early.
Johan Santana
I don’t miss playing for the Yankees. I miss my friends, my teammates.
Rafael Soriano
Every hour spent investigating a drug user or seller is an hour that could have been used to find a missing child.

Cyrus Broacha
What’s missing in the musical theater is producers willing to nurture new work, raise the money and put it on.
Harold Prince
I miss aspects of being in the Arab world – the language – and there is a tranquility in these cities with great rivers. Whether it’s Cairo or Baghdad, you sit there and you think, ‘This river has flown here for thousands of years.’ There are magical moments in these places.
Zaha Hadid
The miracle of love comes to you in the presence of the uninterpreted moment. If you are mentally somewhere else, you miss real life.
Byron Katie

L. Frank Baum

Jack Welch
Everybody is very much alike, really. But fortunately, perhaps, they don’t realise it. – Miss Marple
Agatha Christie
Miss Tarabotti was not certain if he was objecting to the kick or the scream, so she issued both again— with interest. He seemed to be having a difficult time negotiating Alexia’s multiple layers of skirts and ruffles, which formed a particularly efficacious barrier in the tight confines of the hackney.
Gail Carriger
I think anyone who isn’t investing in Nigeria is missing out. If you look at Nigeria today, literally all of the business class cabins are full of foreigners, because these guys see opportunity.
Mo Abudu
If you’re rooted to a spot, you miss a lot of the grace. So you keep moving, and this is the way I think the world’s stories should be told – from many different perspectives.
Chinua Achebe
You are a cynical man, Mr. Pleasant.” “We live in cynical times, Miss Cain.
Derek Landy
It was one thing to hide away from the world. It was quite another to discover the world didn’t miss you when you were gone.
A. Lee Martinez
You are the patient one, Mademoiselle,’ said Poirot to Miss Debenham. She shrugged her shoulders slightly. ‘What else can one do?’ You are a philosopher, Mademoiselle.’ That implies a detached attitude. I think my attitude is more selfish. I have learned to save myself useless emotion.
Agatha Christie
Believe me, I am not even that brave enough to miss that many practices.
Allen Iverson
If I wanted to do ‘The Missing Files of Missy Elliott,’ I have probably six albums just sitting there.
Missy Elliott
I’m shocked at how early everything closes here. But people start earlier. I miss the late nightlife in NYC, but then again I sing and burn so much energy in the show that it’s probably good – I get to go home and sleep.
Neil Patrick Harris
People may think of Southern humor in terms of missing teeth and outhouse accidents, but the best of it is a rich vein running through the best of Southern literature.
Roy Blount, Jr.
My tablecloth was missing in action and long, jagged scratches covered the table’s surface.The scratches looked suspiciously like letters. I climbed on a chair and looked at it from above. MINE. Oh, that’s great. Fantastic. So mature. Perhaps he would pull my pigtails next or stick a tack on my seat.
Ilona Andrews
It is precisely because we resist the darkness in ourselves that we miss the depths of the loveliness, beauty, brilliance, creativity, and joy that lie at our core.
Thomas Moore
If some of the greats had followed the traditional ways we would be missing so much fine art.
Gene Black
I’ve gone seventy-nine hours without sleep, creating. When that flow is going, it’s almost like a high. You don’t want it to stop. You don’t want to go to sleep for fear of missing something.
Dr. Dre
To call it a crime against Mankind is to miss at least half its significance, it is also the punishment of a crime.
Frederic Manning
A lot of the time I’m in the present, and I’m thinking about the past or scheming about the future and missing every present moment, instead of actually partaking of the sacrament of every present moment.
R. D. Laing
I’ve played with IVs before, during and after games. I’ve played with a broken hand, a sprained ankle, a torn shoulder, a fractured tooth, a severed lip, and a knee the size of a softball. I don’t miss 15 games because of a toe injury that everybody knows wasn’t that serious in the first place.
Kobe Bryant
I moved to San Francisco when I was 20 years old. I couldn’t even drink yet. My friends in college thought I was so stupid for missing out on the four best years of my life. But I was so ready to start living my own life and absorb Silicon Valley culture.
Brit Morin
Lads, you’re not to miss practice unless your parents died or you died.
Frank Leahy
If I had an author superpower, I would like to have the ability to stop time for everyone else. I feel like I have to disappear into myself to write books. I go away, into my head, for hours and weeks at a time, and I hate that I miss everything. It’s pretty selfish to want to pause other people, isn’t it?
Rainbow Rowell
Missing the 1978 World Cup made Maradona an even better player, as he showed on the following year at the Youth World Cup, and he never looked back.
Mario Kempes
I think that sexuality is only attractive when it’s natural and spontaneous. This is where a lot of them miss the boat. And then something I’d just like to spout off on. We are all born sexual creatures, thank God, but it’s a pity so many people despise and crush this natural gift. Art, real art, comes from it, everything.
When I got to high school, I was going to do sports, but I got kicked off the volleyball team because I kept missing it for musical theater.
Shanice Williams
I miss him like one might miss a scar, or wooden leg, something disfiguring but characteristic.
Nick Hornby
I miss it, I miss it, I miss it, I make it.
Seve Ballesteros
In the modern operas that ‘Miss Saigon’ and ‘Les Miz’ are, nobody breaks out into song from conventional book dialogue. Everything is sung from beginning to end, including the recitative.
Lea Salonga
I’m no Buddhist monk, and I can’t say I’m in love with renunciation in itself, or traveling an hour or more to print out an article I’ve written, or missing out on the N.B.A. Finals. But at some point, I decided that, for me at least, happiness arose out of all I didn’t want or need, not all I did.
Pico Iyer
I’m Little Miss Sunshine, I sprinkle it around.
Courtney Robertson
Happiness is a strange thing. It is something I tend to recognize only after it has passed, when I realize I miss it.
Claire Holden Rothman
I miss theater. I miss living the arc of the character, from curtain to curtain, and I miss the immediate audience response.
David Anders
Have you ever watched a crab on the shore crawling backward in search of the Atlantic Ocean, and missing? That’s the way the mind of man operates.
H. L. Mencken
I was missing the main weight-bearing bone in both legs. And the left leg, I didn’t have a full knee. It was a floating knee. I had six toes. My hands were webbed, and I also have one kidney. I don’t have a full bicep on my right side. Thank God my hair didn’t get ruined.
Oksana Masters
The feeling of love is measured by the extent of missing the feverish state in which the absence of the other plunges us
Francine Noel
There’s a lot of women out there, some of whom are my age who’ve never been married and some who have been married and would like to be married again but think their ship has sailed, and I’m like, ‘Oh no, honey, let Miss Niecy show you it is never too late for love!’
Niecy Nash
I’m not the only one who has ever lost somebody; I’m not the only one who was missing somebody. That’s what I love about country music, that’s what I love about songwriters, is being able to put out those words, those feelings.
Cole Swindell
But I’ll never write another Missing You’ again as long as I live. I hope that I’ll write a good song, but I don’t think that I’ll be able to write another song that will reach people that much.
John Waite
They tell you that you’ll lose your mind when you grow older. What they don’t tell you is that you won’t miss it very much.
Malcolm Cowley
It’s what the Taliban does in Afghanistan, it’s what gets done in the Middle East, and it’s clearly something that certain mainly conservative groups in the United States would like to do. They miss the good old days, when men were men and women were nothing.
Anna Quindlen
… people miss a great deal by being sensible.
Martha Gellhorn
Fine” I said icily. “I’ll do this. but i want it noted that I’m doing this against my will.” “I think we already figured that out, Miss Hathaway.
Richelle Mead
Let’s face it. We’re undone by each other. And if we’re not, we’re missing something. If this seems so clearly the case with grief, it is only because it was already the case with desire. One does not always stay intact.
Judith Butler
Hockey was such a part of my life, as well as my family’s, that I knew we were all going to miss it.  For the first few weeks my son was in tears sobbing, ‘I miss you being a Red Wing daddy.’  I didn’t know what to say so we just cried together.  Nobody prepares you for that kind of stuff.
Kris Draper
It is very clear from the text of the Geneva Conventions that families have the right to know about the whereabouts of their missing and that belligerents have a duty to inform families if they have indication and if they are detaining people.
Peter Maurer
I guess I had that insecurity of missing out on the normal things that everybody else does. With all the traveling I was doing I felt I was leaving something behind.
Evonne Goolagong Cawley
Those who try to stifle the vibrancy of our democracy and shield policies from scrutiny behind a false cloak of patriotism miss the real value of what our troops defend and how we best defend our troops. We will ask questions and we will defend our democracy.
John F. Kerry
I think a lot of people get so obsessed with the wedding and the expense of the wedding that they miss out on what the real purpose is. It’s not about a production number, it’s about a meaningful moment between two people that’s witnessed by people that they actually really know and care about.
Jane Seymour
Well, usually when a person shakes their head,” said McGonagall coldly, “they mean ‘no.’ So unless Miss Edgecombe is using a form of sign language as yet unknown to humans.
J. K. Rowling
And the thing which is missing is love, some feeling for, as well as some understanding of, the inclusive community of rocks and soils, plants and animals, of which we are a part.
Joseph Wood Krutch
He called her a MILF, which must be offensive because Miss Castle called him a thug and sent hit out of the room. Gabe, what is a MILF?”- Bethany
Alexandra Adornetto
Didn’t I say I’d always be your same stars? If you get to missing me, just look up.
Anne Rivers Siddons
There was a moment in time when we were filming in London, and we thought someone stole one of the queen’s wigs. But I think someone had just misplaced it. It was so funny. I remember it being the most panicked day on set. ‘We’re missing a wig!’
Emma Corrin
I recognize the amount of time that it takes as a director. I made the choice to stop taking roles outside of L.A. because I didn’t want to miss any of my child’s life.
Regina King
Let life unfold, say what you mean. You can’t always think about what you’ve lost, or what you don’t have, or what you didn’t get. Because when you do that, you’re missing out on the now. You can’t know if you’ll be here tomorrow or a year from now.
Adriana Trigiani
Intelligence is like good taste. If you don’t have it, you don’t miss it.
John C. Dvorak
The genius of you Americans is that you never make clear-cut stupid moves, only complicated stupid moves which make the rest of us wonder at the possibility that we might be missing something.
Gamal Abdel Nasser
The chance to be seen as a warm, witty guy is too good an opportunity for a politician to miss.
Robert Orben
I feel the need of relations and friendship, of affection, of friendly intercourse…. I cannot miss these things without feeling, as does any other intelligent man, a void and a deep need.
Vincent Van Gogh
You’ll drive yourself crazy if you start trying to pry the meaning out of every gust of wind or rain squall. I’m not denying that there might actually be a few signs that you won’t want to miss. Knowing the difference is the tricky part.
David Eddings
The evasions of her little novel were exactly those of her life. Everything she did not wish to confront was also missing from her novella–and was necessary to it.
Ian Mcewan
A child who does not play is not a child, but the man who doesn’t play has lost forever the child who lived in him and who he will miss terribly.
Pablo Neruda
Sometimes I miss the old me.
Ann Aguirre
The missing link between animals and a truly humane mankind is man himself, who does not yet see himself as a part of the world, claiming it instead for himself.
Michael Fox
Love..its a missing puzzle piece waiting to be found and when you do find it you can finally figure out the picture life has to show you.
When I miss class for one day, I know it. When I miss class for two days, my teacher knows it. When I miss class for three days, the audience knows it.
Rudolf Nureyev
When millions of kids are missing out on school, delivering educational services becomes an issue that concerns the humanitarian system.
Peter Maurer
You can’t miss what you never had.
Hunter S. Thompson
It’s time to start recognizing that not all escapist entertainment is created equal. And that some of it isn’t even entertainment. “Miss March” is, to use the vernacular of the escapist moviegoer, the biggest pile of crap I’ve seen in ages.
Stephanie Zacharek
Miss Marks, you see, makes her living by…entertaining young, and not so young, sailors…or any other members of the armed forced, or civilians, who enjoy…being entertained by ladies who…entertain.
Rick Yancey
I’d rather miss one or two games than to come back and pop it and miss four or five.
Darren McFadden
Unless we practice
loving feelings toward
everyone we meet, day in,
day out, we’re missing out
on the most joyous part of
life. If we can actually open
our hearts, there’s no
difficulty in being happy.
Ayya Khema
I miss the city Bret and I live in, Wellington. It’s a good place to be creative, in the same way New York is.
Jemaine Clement
Sometimes you want to go for a walk and you don’t want to be watched. You just want to be anonymous and blend in. Especially when I travel, I feel that way, because I can’t really go out and see a city the way other people can and I miss out on a lot.
Madonna Ciccone
You sound as if you don’t mind what happens to it,” said Tessa. “Won’t you miss it here? This place has been your home.” His fingers stroked her wrist lightly, making her shiver. “You are home for me now.
Cassandra Clare
The fast fliers are not disgraced.” Queen Ree reached up for the missing tiara. “She saved us, but she’s with him now.” Vidia was complicated, two fairies in one, a loyal traitor.
Gail Carson Levine
There were times Ruma felt closer to her mother in death than she had in life, an intimacy born simply of thinking of her so often, of missing her. But she knew that this was an illusion, a mirage, and that the distance between them was now infinite, unyielding.
Jhumpa Lahiri
As Rousseau could not compose without his cat beside him, so I cannot play chess without my king’s bishop. In its absense the game to me is lifeless and void. The vitalizing factor is missing, and I can devise no plan of attack.
Siegbert Tarrasch
I wonder that religion can live or die on the strength of a faint, stirring breeze. The scent trail shifts, causing the predator to miss the pounce. One god draws in the breath of life and rises; another god expires.
Barbara Kingsolver
I can’t remember missing a practice because of illness.
Don Shula
My wife, she likes to have things uncluttered, and if something is missing, then one has to be very careful not to ask her if it was thrown out – you have to ask her simply where it might be.
Kyle Chandler
Then I turned the page and at the top it said THINGS I MISS ABOUT M and there was a list of 15 things, and the first was THE WAY HE HOLDS THINGS. I did not understand how you can miss the way somebody holds things.
Nicole Krauss
I am in an outstanding city, an outstanding club. The only thing that Arsenal has been missing is a league title.
Granit Xhaka
When I was in school, my mother stressed education. I am so glad she did. I graduated from Yale College and Yale University with my master’s and I didn’t do it by missing school.
Angela Bassett
I mean, it’s stupid to miss someone you didn’t even get along with. But I don’t know, it was nice, you know, having someone you could always fight with.
John Green
..he may love you, he may miss you, but ultimately he’s just not that into you.
Greg Behrendt
I know it makes sense for me and him to just break up now and just live our seperate lives and not have to worry about missing each other all the time. But when I think about that, I get sick. Physically sick. Like I seriously throw up. I need to be with him, even if I can’t, like, be with him.
Megan McCafferty
A memory is a beautiful thing, it’s almost a desire that you miss.
Gustave Flaubert
What’s wrong with people?” she says, almost too quiet for me to hear. “Were they born with parts missing or did it fall out somewhere along the way?
Isaac Marion
When we suggest that men are at the top because men discriminate, we miss the point. Men are at the top of the work hierarchy because work has been primarily men’s responsibility.
Warren Farrell
A lack of love is the cause for most problems in life, when love is missing, nothing can flourish, only pain thrives.
Leon Brown
You never miss what you’ve never had. I never had any other life. I didn’t know any other life.
B. B. King
Sad to say I’m missing the Masters. Thanks to the fans for so many kind wishes.
Tiger Woods
It was like reaching for someone’s hand, then missing their fingers, or even their arm, and hitting their shoulder instead. But no matter. You hang on tight anyway.
Sarah Dessen
While wrestling in college as a junior, it came to a point where wrestling just wasn’t enough for me anymore. I love wrestling, but I felt like I was missing something, and so the striking part about MMA, the boxing and kickboxing, was what got me really interested in MMA.
Cain Velasquez
There are epic impulses everywhere you look in There Will Be Blood; what’s missing is character development, focused storytelling and, most significantly (apart from that terrific opening sequence), any sense of raw, intuitive drama.
Stephanie Zacharek
People say I slept with seven miss worlds, I didn’t. It was only four, I didn’t turn up for the other three
George Best
Children with Autism aren’t missing. Instead, they are off making discoveries
Jacob Barnett
Something like missing a shot, and the next play you’re thinking about it, or you give up a play on defense and you’re thinking about it, you’re frustrated about it, what’s happening is that you’re really thinking about yourself. You’re not connected to the team. And you have to be connected, or those few plays add up.
Grayson Allen
I think theater is the strongest place to find what’s missing in entertainment. Unfortunately, it pays the least.
Joe Morton
Cumulative errors depend largely on the big surprises, the big opportunities. Not only do economic, financial, and political predictors miss them, but they are quite ashamed to say anything outlandish to their clients and yet events, it turns out, are almost always outlandish.
Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Learn as if you were not reaching your goal and as though you were scared of missing it
Although I miss my family and friends when I’m away from Amsterdam, I’ve never had that feeling of missing a city like I have with New Orleans. Especially for the music.
Michiel Huisman
I was a pallbearer. I felt, when I got the call that Peter had died, I didn’t have any bank account, but I felt I needed to start walking then because there was no way in the world I would miss Peter Norman’s service.
John Carlos
I miss her, but I don’t want to see her.
Kim Do-Jin
I missed the television train at some point. I don’t know what happened, but now I’ve created a complex about it. I’m missing out on what everybody’s watching, and now I can’t even begin to think about starting to watch a television show because it’s been so long. I don’t even have a Netflix account.
Dakota Johnson
It is sheer good fortune to miss somebody long before they leave you.
Toni Morrison
Nothing comes unannounced, but many can miss the announcement. So it’s very important to actually listen to your own intuition rather than driving through it.
Terence McKenna
What a man misses mostly in heaven is company.
Mark Twain
It’s about misunderstandings between people and places, being disconnected and looking for moments of connection. There are so many moments in life when people don’t say what they mean, when they are just missing each other, waiting to run into each other in a hallway.
Sofia Coppola
So you’ve been gone a couple days,’ Alison said. ‘Hmm, what’d you miss…A celebrity did drugs. Politicians disagreed. A different celebrity wore a bikini that revealed a bodily imperfection. A team won a sporting event, but another team lost.
John Green
When you’re fighting with a stunt person, your intent is to miss.
Victoria Pratt
A couple of things are missing from Indigenous affairs. We tend to go and process, we tend to spend a lot of money for very limited outcomes, and we have got to change that.
Yitzhak Rabin
I seem to have a missing gene when it comes to organized sports. Televised events bore me and I literally fear the crowds at live matches.
Neil Macdonald
If you spend your life trying to please people or letting them control you, you may make them happy, but you’ll miss your destiny.
Joel Osteen
Passionate, organized hatred is the element missing in all that we do to try to change the world. Now is the time to spread hate, hatred for the rich.
Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz
Don’t you miss the days when America was just morally bankrupt?
Bill Maher
I don’t miss my youth. I’m glad I had one, but I wouldn’t like to start over.
Umberto Eco
you can’t really know the person standing before you, because always there is some missing piece
Barbara Kingsolver
To have God speak to the heart is a majestic experience, an experience that people may miss if they monopolize the conversation and never pause to hear God’s responses.
Charles Stanley
In this world, there is life and death; he who misses the life shall never die anymore, because he is already a dead!
Mehmet Murat Ildan
I miss you so much your absence causes me, at times, accute pain. I don’t mean sexually. I mean in connection with my writing.
William S. Burroughs
Our fears can cause us to miss out on a lot of experiences and golden opportunities. Don’t let your fears rob you of your life.
James Van Praagh
I was thinking that women should put pictures of missing husbands on beer cans.
Steven Wright
The greatest felony in the news business today is to be behind, or to miss a big story. So speed and quantity substitute for thoroughness and quality, for accuracy and context.
Carl Bernstein
Cambridge was a joy. Tediously. People reading books in a posh place. It was my fantasy. I loved it. I miss it still.
Zadie Smith
God showed me that He could and would replace everything that was missing in my life, but that nothing could replace Him in my life.
Zig Ziglar
Our lives are defined by opportunities, even the ones we miss.
Eric Roth
The Khmer Rouge tried to delete everything. They tried to erase our past, our personality, our land, our sentiment. What we tried to do in ‘The Missing Picture’ was to reconstruct our identity, to bring it back to the people through cinema.
Rithy Panh
I still have highs and lows, just like any other person. What’s missing is the lack of control over the super highs, which became destructive, and the super lows, which are immediately destructive.
Patty Duke
I miss that moment when you’re about to go through the tube turn-style but you put your ticket in the wrong way and then as you’re trying to figure out how exactly to get in the damn station you hear a collective sigh of 40 people behind you pissed that you’re slowing down the herd.
Dan Mangan
I’m human. I’m going to miss shots, … When I miss four (in a row), I’ve got to feel I can make the fifth one.
Raymond Felton
The whole of the life — even the hard — is made up of the minute parts, and if I miss the infinitesimals, I miss the whole. These are new language lessons, and I live them out. There is a way to live the big of giving thanks in all things. It is this: to give thanks in this one small thing. The moments will add up.
Ann Voskamp
We’re trying to plug a void and bring what’s been missing back to hip-hop.
Black Thought
Perhaps one of the only positive pieces of advice that I was ever given was that supplied by an old courtier who observed: Only two rules really count. Never miss an opportunity to relieve yourself; never miss a chance to sit down and rest your feet.
King Edward VIII
I miss New York terribly. There is no place like the city. I miss people-watching. I miss the nightlife. I miss the food. There are so many options in New York City.
Regina Hall
There are always some people who are ready to embrace a doctrine, a notion, a dogma, and they miss the real teaching.
Nhat Hanh
I became a good pitcher when I stopped trying to make them miss the ball and started trying to make them hit it.
Sandy Koufax
To sink a six-foot putt with thirty million people looking over your shoulder, convince yourself that, if you miss it, you will be embarrassed and poor.
Jack Nicklaus
The missing piece in his stomach hurt so much-and eventually he stopped thinking about the Theorem and wondered only how something that isn’t there can hurt you.
John Green
I grew up believing my generation would be better. We would be kinder, we would be more level-headed. We would be more loving. And so many people are missing.
Jorja Fox
I still play but for some reason, I am having so much fun playing guitar and singing that I don’t really miss it because I’ve done it for so long like twenty-something years with Motley.
Tommy Lee
Bipartisanship is not what is missing in Washington. Common sense is.
Rand Paul
I don’t know how many more times I’ll be in New England again. But I leave coach Belichick and those guys with a salute: ‘I love you guys. I miss you. I’m out.’
Randy Moss
And oh, god, how could so much regret and so much sweetness and so much sadness all be present in that single moment. I was already dead and missing my unlived life. I was already dead and Tobias was mourning. I tried to smile. For him.
Katherine Applegate
Now this really annoys me: All these people getting on the Internet and saying Nostradamus predicted this. If Nostradamus were alive today his name would be Miss Cleo and he’d be charging $2.99 a minute.
Jay Leno
What is failure except feebleness? And what is it to miss one’s mark except to aim widely and weakly?
It’s a great opportunity to lower costs without sacrificing quality. If a retailer is not leveraging this capability, they are certainly missing something.
Marc Chandler
If you think nobody cares if you’re alive, try missing a couple of car payments.
Earl Wilson
There are far more important things in life than making a putt or missing a putt or winning a championship or losing a championship.
Bernhard Langer
When you lack a certain vitality in the film business, there’s no hiding it. It’s like you’ve had your limb chopped off. How do you hide the fact that you’re missing an arm?
Alec Baldwin
Male bashing is everywhere. It would be a mistake to view the current situation as another skirmish in the war between the sexes. Women have been doing the shooting, and men have been burying their heads in the sand, hoping the bullets will miss.
Warren Farrell
I truly miss the genius of the music of John Lennon, as I’m sure everybody does.
Peter Fonda
If I have to score baskets then I have to try to score baskets and stop missing shots, but even if it’s not going, I need to be able to have another phase of the game and not let my offense take away from my defense or rebounds.
Larry Johnson
What we are missing over here is the life of soccer.
Thomas Dooley
All right, so call me Miss Cliche of 1960, but the thing about the married ones that always spooks me is how sweet and attentive they are at first, when they’re on the prowl.
S. J. Perelman
The shape is the most important to me because it is what really matters and what’s really missing in the market. Anything else is easier.

Dennis Quaid
When I was writing my first novel, ‘Elizabeth is Missing,’ I was writing the only novel I had ever written and writing about the only protagonist I’d ever written about. Because of this, I didn’t think of her as a construct. Maud was real.
Emma Healey
There are moments when I can’t believe I’m as old as I am. But I feel better physically than I did 10 years ago. I don’t think, Oh God, I’m missing something.
Madonna Ciccone
You and I were created for joy, and if we miss it we miss the reason for our existence. If our joy is honest joy, it must somehow be congruous with human tragedy. This is the test of joy’s integrity. It is compatible with pain. Only the heart that hurts has a right to joy.
Lewis B. Smedes
The moment a book is lent I begin to miss it.
Anatole Broyard
When I see ya baby girl, I miss feelin on ya. I miss everything that’s real about ya and that’s everything about ya, that’s just how I feel about ya
I was a producer and rapper before Linkin Park. Once the band took off, it was the center of my focus. A couple of years ago, I started missing doing straight-up hip hop, and that’s when Fort Minor began.
Mike Shinoda
Maybe you had to leave in order to really miss a place; maybe you had to travel to figure out how beloved your starting point was.
Jodi Picoult
In archery we have something like the way of the superior man. When the archer misses the center of the target, he turns round and seeks for the cause of his failure in himself.
Look for what’s missing. Many advisors can tell a President how to improve what’s proposed or what’s gone amiss. Few are able to see what isn’t there.
Donald Rumsfeld
The crux… is that the vast majority of the mass of the universe seems to be missing.
William Broad
In My Secret Life” “I saw you this morning, you were moving so fast. Can’t seem to loosen my grip On the past. And I miss you so much, there’s no one in sight. And we’re still making love In my secret life. I smile when I am angry, I cheat and I lie, I do what I have to do to get by, In my secret life.

Dallas Willard
I have spent my life waiting for something to happen,’ she said. ‘And I have come to understand that nothing will. Or it already has, and I blinked during that moment and it’s gone. I don’t know which is worse — to have missed it or to know there is nothing to miss.’ Falling Angels
Tracy Chevalier
What is missing from your life? Know that whatever you are missing, you are – most likely – not giving. Bring to your life what you want from it. If you don’t think The Uni-verse is helping you, try trusting yourself and taking a risk. Listen to your intuition. Do what scares you… and the see the miracle that awaits.
Mastin Kipp
When I was about nine, I was rushed to hospital to have my appendix removed. Like any child, I was more concerned about missing out on having fun with my friends than my health.
Dervla Kirwan
The only really interesting thing about someone that makes you want to explore them further is their heart, and Miss Honeycut has a teeny tiny pea-sized one and it takes you nowhere you want to go.
Polly Horvath
I miss 100% of the shots I don’t take.
Wayne Gretzky
I do miss things about Britain. I think there was a misconception, there definitely was, that I left because of bad press, and being pilloried. I left Britain because I fell in love with someone who lived in Switzerland – that was the main thing.
Phil Collins
It’s probably a bad indicator of your lifestyle when you miss your ex-boyfriend because he’s absolutely lethal.
Charlaine Harris
If you can’t laugh at yourself, you may be missing the colossal joke of the century.
Barry Humphries

Brad Daugherty
Never worry about missing a field goal. Just blame the holder and think about making the next one.
Lou Groza
Germany will continue to play a central – perhaps even a more important – role in the European Union. I think that we will all miss the pragmatic approach of the British, however, particularly in those long nights of negotiation.
Jean-Claude Juncker
Life is in the here and now.
Either we meet it, we live it-or we miss it.
Vimala Thakar

My husband said it was him or the cat. I miss him sometimes.
Zsa Zsa Gabor
Most timidities have such secret compensations and Miss Bart was discerning enough to know that the inner vanity is generally in proportion to the outer self depreciation.
Edith Wharton
I’m not sure how young kids get to the point where they’re memorizing and knowing songs, but I knew the words to ‘Missing You’ from John Waite probably from when I was three years old. For whatever reason, that was the song that I gravitated toward when it was on the radio and I was driving around with my mom.
Brandon Flowers
My mother was the most beautiful woman I have ever seen. There are moments when I remember her beauty, unadorned, unposed, not in some artificial place like a set or a photo call but rather captured outdoors in nature, where she took my breath away. When those moments surface, I miss her the most.
Jamie Lee Curtis
In our quest to tweet, like, and trend, we have forgotten that brands can be built through advertising. Ads can generate big ideas that can never be trumped by tactics. That is the magic of an ad, and that is what is missing from many ads today.
Jerry Della Femina
I don’t believe in God, but I miss him.
Julian Barnes
There is no music in a “rest” that I know of, but there’s the making of music in it. And people are always missing that part of the life melody.

Pope Francis
. . . perhaps our grandsons, having never seen a wild river, will never miss the chance to set a canoe in singing waters . . . glad I shall never be young without wild country to be young in.
Aldo Leopold
Nonfiction is both easier and harder to write than fiction. It’s easier because the facts are already laid out before you, and there is already a narrative arc. What makes it harder is that you are not free to use your imagination and creativity to fill in any missing gaps within the story.
Amy Bloom
If you run an Internet search on Vietnam and the war, most of the information you get begins at about 1962. I think this is telling. It is missing the whole period that led up to the reasons the war happened in the first place.
Brendan Fraser
We must consider what Miss. Fairfax quits, before we condemn her taste for what she goes to.
Jane Austen
I wanted to tell you that I just–I miss you. And maybe that sounds ridiculous–like we barely know each other, but between the emails and texts and… everything else, I felt like we did. Like we do. and I miss–I don’t know how else to say it–I miss both of you.
Tammara Webber

Jon Kabat-Zinn
I’m never home. I miss birthdays. I miss holidays. I miss anniversaries. I miss special moments. I’m not always there for important times, because I’m out on the road trying to make people laugh. I give up my privacy. I give up the ability to walk somewhere and relax.
Gabriel Iglesias
You can’t say yes to every role and you have to make people miss you. I don’t want people to get sick of me.
Tahj Mowry
If you track your organization’s creativity by the number of brainstorms on your calendar, you’re missing out. It’s more important to capture those unplanned sparks of inspiration that so often come when we’re cooking dinner, taking a shower, or commuting to work.
Charles Best
Be wary of strong drink. It can make you shoot at tax collectors… and miss.
Robert A. Heinlein
Don’t talk like that, Dill,” said Aunt Alexandra. “It’s not becoming to a child. It’s – cynical.” “I ain’t cynical, Miss Alexandra. Tellin’ the truth’s not cynical, is it?” “The way you tell it, it is.
Harper Lee
Alaskans need some certainty and clarity over how the Pebble Partnership intends to proceed. I understand the complexity of a project like this, and I appreciate the investments that have been made in Alaska already. But a reliable timeline has been missing, and I hope that the companies will provide one soon.
Lisa Murkowski
In place of equal respect, the nation offered women the Miss America beauty pageant, established in 1920-the same year women won the vote.
Susan Faludi
I didn’t miss training because it had become so painful for me. I filled the void pretty quickly as I went straight into coaching and it was great; I had to start learning all over again, and then when I went into TV I knew nothing about it so I had to start from the very beginning.
Jo Durie
Going on the road for long stretches can seem daunting, and I certainly miss being home sometimes, but the chance to see so many different cities, let alone perform in them, is something I am really grateful for.

Wayne Dyer
(I must tell my Hon. Friend Miss Janet Fookes) that although I have always been attracted to her I have never actually dared ask her whether she would go to bed with me.
Nicholas Fairbairn
Taste is developed by the diversity of the products one can sample. I think our children today may be missing an education about food. We must teach them to know their cuisine and to know the equilibrium of nourishment. That is very important for health.
Joel Robuchon
While ‘Visitation Street’ has the markings of a traditional whodunnit mystery – starting with a missing girl, intrigue and many suspicious characters – Pochoda shows her hand early on by fingering a culprit. The book turns, then, into a ‘whydunnit.’
Claire Cameron
I grew up on the Beatles; I love Linkin Park and Green Day. I heard hip-hop for the first time at 11 and realized what I was missing.
Billie Eilish
We need Jesus like we need oxygen. Like we need water. Like the branch needs the vine. Jesus is not merely a figure for devotions. He is the missing essence of your existence. Whether we know it or not, we are desperate for Jesus.
John Eldred
You are obvious, boy. You are difficult to miss. If you came to me in company with a purple lion, a green elephant, and a scarlet unicorn astride which was the King of England in his Royal Robes, I do believe that it is you and you alone that people would stare at, dismissing the others as minor irrelevancies.
Neil Gaiman
There has always been the same amount of light in the world. The new and missing stars, the comets and eclipses, do not affect thegeneral illumination, for only our glasses appreciate them.
Henry David Thoreau
Whoever you are, there is some younger person who thinks you are perfect. There is some work that will never be done if you don’t do it. There is someone who would miss you if you were gone. There is a place that you alone can fill.
Jacob Braude
Memory is never complete. There are always parts of it that time has amputated. Writing is a way of retrieving them, of bringing the missing parts back to it, of making it more holistic.
Nawal El Saadawi
There should be a name for the syndrome that occurs when you’re in Paris and you already miss it.
Rosecrans Baldwin
It is a sin if you come to Rajasthan and not have dal-baati and laal maans. I know it’s a little heavy but I am okay doing extra push-ups in the gym than missing the droolworthy Rajasthani food.
Diana Penty
There’s this presence of these missing people and this lost community that I felt but could not see, and that was a very strange dissonance for me.
Shimon Attie
It’s so technical. It’s nothing personal. You’re not fighting really, you’re missing each other by a half of foot at least, ideally more and you get a few knocks and bruises. But with the kissing, you do kiss someone. Its lips on lips.
Colin Farrell
Nobody can miss you unless you go away.
Paul Westerberg

Susan Donovan
What happened to the winner” Adina asked. “She tripped.” “And the first runner-up?” Miss Michigan cracked her knuckles. “She tripped, too.
Libba Bray
I just had a baby. I’m not going to work unless it’s something really special and meaningful, because I can’t imagine missing all that time with my daughter.
Gwyneth Paltrow
I’m a really sensitive person. I cry if I miss a cab. I’ve always worn my emotions on my sleeve. I think it makes life so much better when you can talk about anything.
Michael Keaton
I got addicted to Tetris, playing it in my basement, I was missing all these airplane flights over it. After the fourth one that I missed, I realized I needed to get rid of this thing – so ever since then, I don’t play video games any more.
Bam Margera
The law is a gun, which if it misses a pigeon always kills a crow; if it does not strike the guilty, it hits someone else. As every crime creates a law, so in turn every law creates a crime.
Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
Sometimes I miss out the morning’s painting session and instead study my Japanese books in the open.

Right. I’ve been missing Nutty McFang anyway.” “Stop making up names for him.” “What about Count Crackula?” “Just stop.
Rachel Caine
I miss the guys, and I miss playing baseball. Just being able to swing the bat, or run, or dive for a ball, or slide into second.
Prince Fielder
Gratitude always comes into play; research shows that people are happier if they are grateful for the positive things in their lives, rather than worrying about what might be missing.
Dan Buettner
Because when I looked at you across that table at the diner, no one else existed. And whether or not anything happens between you and me, it took meeting you to show me what I was missing.
J.R. Ward
I miss the noise in New York: the sound of taxis and that constant buzz the city has.
Bridget Moynahan

Esther Dyson
The church which is not a missionary church will be a missing church when Jesus comes.

And Honey, I miss you and I’m being good.
And I’d love to be with you if only I could.
Bobby Goldsboro
One of the things I most wanted to do in New York was to go to a performance by Martha Graham. For me, she’s Miss Mattie T. Graham. I thought she needed something in the middle. If she’s going to be an honorary Southerner, she’s got to have something in the middle, so I just put an initial T and a period.
Eugene Walter
Swiss cheese is the only cheese you can draw and people can identify. You can draw American cheese, but someone will think it’s cheddar. It’s the only cheese you can bite and miss. “Hey Mitch – does that sandwich have cheese on it?” “Every now and then!”
Mitch Hedberg
I learned that I’m so busy with what I’m doing, so focused on what I’m doing, that I miss a lot of opportunities for interacting with people.
Bela Fleck
I dabbled in things like Howlin’ Wolf, Cream and Led Zeppelin, but when I heard Son House and Robert Johnson, it blew my mind. It was something I’d been missing my whole life. That music made me discard everything else and just get down to the soul and honesty of the blues.
Jack White
The imprint of Miss Hepburn is absolutely, totally present. Like it or not, she will be the most important look of the twentieth century.
Manolo Blahnik
You might get some serial killers who are born with a chip missing, but for the most part I don’t think anyone is born bad.
Benicio Del Toro
When you are missing someone, time seems to move slower, and when I’m falling in love with someone, time seems to be moving faster.
Taylor Swift

I didn’t miss the putt. I made the putt. The ball missed the hole.
Peter Jacobsen
First up, the lost and found has gone missing. It itself, is lost. So please try not to lose anything until we find it.
Michael Scott
I miss the closet. Homosexuals, not to speak of the rest of society, were far better off when social pressure forced them to hide their activities.
Ron Paul
I don’t have a lot of shame. That doesn’t mean I can’t feel bad about the way someone reacts to me or about something I read about myself online. But I don’t have a lot of guilt, no. I’ve always been this way. I’m missing a chip.
Chelsea Handler
When money and hype recede from the art world, one thing I won’t miss will be what curator Francesco Bonami calls the ‘Eventocracy.’ All this flashy ‘art-fair art’ and those highly produced space-eating spectacles and installations wow you for a minute until you move on to the next adrenaline event.
Jerry Saltz
That’s the funny thing about life. We’re rarely aware of the bullets we dodge. The just-misses. The almost-never-happeneds. We spend so much time worrying about how the future is going to play out and not nearly enough time admiring the precious perfection of the present.
Lauren Miller
Very few people spend time with themselves anymore. Which could be the reason why there has been an exponential rise in jerks. Do the world a favour. Stay in, you’re not missing anything you can’t make up for the next time round.
Shweta Bachchan Nanda
The cookie is the critical part. It’s a word I created for sex and you’ve got to give a man all three things. If you miss one out, he is going to find it somewhere else.
Steve Harvey
My Hamlet was about as alienated as you can get. Mine was a bitter and lonely prince. Valid, I think, but maybe tough to root for. I think that romance was missing.
Stephen Lang
The owl is one of the most curious creatures. A bird that stays awake when the rest of the world sleeps. They can see in the dark. I find that so interesting, to be mired in reality when the rest of the world is dreaming. What does he see and what does he know that the rest of the world is missing?
M.J. Rose
If you play it safe every time, then you’re missing the best part of acting. You haven’t learned anything about your humanity.
Brit Marling
I do miss George Bush. Compared to these teabaggers and the people who are pandering to them, he looks like a professor.
Bill Maher
Yet do not miss the moral, my good men. For Saint Paul says that all that’s written well Is written down some useful truth to tell. Then take the wheat and let the chaff lie still.
Geoffrey Chaucer
Self-taught are those without formal education. Most self-taught artists have missing ingredients to their work.
Billy Cannon
How long until you have to go…reap?” I whispered as my arms slid around his neck. Like we were dancing. Only we weren’t moving, and there was no music. “Don’t know. Don’t care.” “Won’t you get in trouble if you miss something?” “See my previous answer.
Rachel Vincent
Death doesn’t just take someone, it misses someone else, and in the small distance between being taken and being missed, lives are changed.
Mitch Albom
I miss ‘EastEnders.’ I loved it. But I was exhausted when I left. They asked me to go back recently – they’ve asked a few times. I am tempted! But my husband Scott says you have to really think about it. Because, towards the end, I was so exhausted and not sleeping at night. I’m not quite ready for it.
Barbara Windsor
My sister is just three years older than me, but I never understood her, and I could never relate to her. In fact, I used to feel that I will never be able to like her. But when I came to Mumbai, I started missing her.
Sanya Malhotra
I believe there is no dearth of talent in India. But what’s missing is the ability to work hard.
Milkha Singh
I maintain that when I finally retire from my career in music, I will go and live back in Wales – when I am an old person, if I live to be an old person. The water I miss, and the air, there’s something different about it. And I miss the simple life.
Ellie Goulding
I ran into Axl [Rose] at a club some year ago and told him he’s crazy, we all miss them, and he needs to get the band back together.
Steven Tyler
I might even pursue a career in politics. If I do, I will have had great practice dealing with the avalanche of daily criticism from working at Fox News and being a former Miss America. I’m ready for anything!
Gretchen Carlson
I still have a lot of passion for music, but I would quit it tomorrow if that’s what my family needed me to do. I’m sure I’d miss it, but it’s a job.
Aaron Watson
We miss 100 percent of the sales we don’t ask for.
Zig Ziglar
The real thing young people should fear is missing out on those few, true, long-term friendships that make for a richer, happier life.
Robin Marantz Henig
The great Big Black Things that have loomed against the horizon of my life, threatening to devour me, simply loomed and nothing more. The things that have really made me miss my train have
always been sweet, soft, pretty, pleasant things of which I was not in the least afraid.
Elbert Hubbard
I’m not the greatest long-distance shooter, I know that. But I know if I can get around that free-throw line area, a lot of times you’ve just got to hope I miss.
Chris Paul
I know this is going to sound cheesy and like I’m trying to be Miss America, but the most important responsibility a celebrity has is to set an example and be a role model.
Clay Aiken
Oh righteous doom, that they who make Pleasure their only end, Ordering the whole life for its sake, Miss that whereto they tend. While they who bid stern duty lead, Content to follow, they, Of duty only taking heed, Find pleasure by the way.
Eugene Ionesco
I’m very attached to my family and protective of them and miss them, and that situation, my connection with that can make me become very vulnerable.
Jimmy Cliff
All we know of the Missing Link is that he is missing – and he won’t be missed either.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
How long the night to the watchman, How long the road to the weary traveller, How long the wandering of many lives To the fool who misses the way.
Gautama Buddha
I’m in California, so I know people who are natives who tell me there’s lots of weather here, but it’s not the same as being in Vermont. Since I grew up on the East Coast I miss that weather all the time. You’d think I’d get used to not having it, but I don’t.
Martha Ronk
When I’m looking for hot button answers to tough questions, I don’t look to congressman or my mayor. I say, ‘What would Miss U.S.A. have to say about this?’
Dane Cook
You seemed so far away,” Miss Honey whispered, awestruck. “Oh, I was. I was flying past the stars on silver wings,” Matilda said. “It was wonderful.
Roald Dahl
I was surprised when I was asked to play Miss Daisy and wondered if I could – only in part because she was Jewish but, also because she was a Southern woman who has hardly opened her mouth before she declares she’s not prejudiced, and yet everything she does shows how totally prejudiced she is.
Vanessa Redgrave
I am not really missing theatre as I get to act in films, that too in different languages, such as Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Marathi, my mother tongue.
Atul Kulkarni
Don’t bother to argue anything on the Internet. And I mean, ANYTHING…. The most innocuous, innocent, harmless, basic topics will be misconstrued by people trying to deconstruct things down to the sub-atomic level and entirely miss the point…. Seriously. Keep peeling the onion and you get no onion.
Vera Nazarian
The cardinal rule for hosting the Miss USA and Miss Universe beauty pageants is to expect the unexpected.
Bob Barker
Human and moral factors must always be considered. They must never be missing from policies and from public discussion.
Herman Kahn
I miss my Dad. My Dad loved cheesy monster movies, so we’d have Godzilla movie marathons. Those are some of my favorite memories, laughing at how the monster outfits were so bad, like black garbage bags for heads.
Ahmet Zappa
I’ve got a great life that I really enjoy. But there is something chewing at me inside: that adrenaline rush from football, I miss that.
Alan Shearer
The person I miss most is the one I could have been.
George Bernard Shaw
When you go to jail, there’s so much simple stuff missing. You just want some good toilet paper or a real toothbrush, a real blanket and a real bed to lay in.
Ja Rule
Is there not something wanted, Miss Price, in our language – a something between compliments and – and love – to suit the sort of friendly acquaintance we have had together?
Jane Austen
It was said of Miss Letitia that when money came into her possession it went out of circulation.
Mary Roberts Rinehart
Robin S
Truth is relative, and there is always something missing in truth that prevents it from being perfect.
Nawal El Saadawi
I know if I missed a day and nothing happened, then it would be much easier to miss another day. Pretty soon I wouldn’t have much of a schedule, and then I’d have less motivation. It’s a downward spiral that I want to avoid, so I keep the schedule sacred.
Chris Guillebeau
Indonesia is now undeniably a ruined country. It has sunk to the level of sub-Saharan African nations. It has malls and luxury hotels in several cities, but in between them it is an absolute nightmare, with all the basic services either missing, or on a totally inadequate level.
Andre Vltchek
I’m really going to miss me.
Danny Bonaduce
Andrew Breitbart, self-described media mogul, had several screws loose or missing and was the grinning bomb-thrower of the radical right. He was the attack dog kept on a tight leash and brought out on special occasions to hiss and to menace.
Bill Ayers
Tell me about yourself, Miss Russel.” I started to give him the obligatory response, first the demurral and then the reluctant flat autobiography, but some slight air of polite inattention in his manner stopped me. Instead, I found myself grinning at him. “Why don’t you tell me about myself, Mr. Holmes?
Laurie R. King
She taught me to play the piano, and what it meant to miss somebody.
Eric Roth
I think every woman has this point in her life where she’s like, ‘I have a great job, great outfits and great friends, but something’s missing.’
Tracy McMillan

Alfred Korzybski
Its better to shoot and miss, then to let time run out and wonder what if
Michael Jordan
And if you donВґt commit? I asked. Your choice. But you miss whatВґs on the other side. WhatВґs on the other side? “Ah” he smiled. “A happiness you cannot find alone
Mitch Albom
I really feel something’s missing if I’m not writing.
Stephen Hough
There have been many articles about the top regrets that people have when they’re dying. They are always, “I missed the ordinary moments.” We miss those ordinary moments, and yet, that’s what we’re trying to distract ourselves from at the same time.
Geneen Roth
You know, and it really doesn’t have a lot to do with the movie. That’s the trick to doing a good musical is that, if you take that music number out, there’s less to the movie there. You would miss it.
Trey Parker
Voters tell politicians what they want through the ballot box. Constantly second-guessing them by speculating whether the parties should gang up on each other misses the point.
Nick Clegg
I supposed, perhaps, you miss the promise of what could have been, while at the same time you are grateful that what it was instead is over.
Sylvia Day
I miss good old-fashioned honorable people just trying to make something of life. Simply, without hurting anyone else. I know that makes me a sap.
Paula McLain
When you are not missing something, longing for something, you don’t really think about it that much. It’s like that girlfriend you don’t want to have anymore. You don’t think about her anymore. Or ex-husband. You just don’t.
Danica Patrick
My favorite time in the cycles of public life is the time when the Pope is dead and they haven’t elected a new one. There’s no one in the world who is infallible for those weeks. And you know, I don’t miss it.
Christopher Hitchens
Jeeves, you really are a specific dream-rabbit.” “Thank you, miss. I am glad to have given satisfaction.
P. G. Wodehouse
I never miss a good chance to shut up
James Patterson
You’re real selfish and everything is focused on you and how you feel until you realize there is something missing and that’s your relationship with Jesus Christ.
Darrell Waltrip
Diverse forms of memory can have a variety of gaps. Thus it is possible for me to represent a past situation to myself and be unable to remember my inner behavior in this situation. As I transfer myself back into this situation, a surrogate for the missing memory comes into focus.
Edith Stein
As long as we are alive, we feel fear. It is an intrinsic part of our makeup, as natural as a bitter cold winter day or the winds that rip branches off trees. If we resist it or push it aside, we miss a powerful opportunity for awakening.
Tara Brach
All I want is a modest place in Mr X’s Good Reading, Miss Y’s Good Writing, and that new edition of One Thousand Best Bits of Recent Prose.
James Agate

Kenny Baker
Golf is a game of misses, and the winners are those who have the best misses
Kathy Whitworth
Todays youth cannot miss something they have never known, but I fear that there are no current fictional characters whose impact and influence will last with such abiding affection into their sore and yellow as this splendid mans creations have in mine!
Peter Cushing
I had to make a choice at one point in my life, of missing films or missing my children. It was a very easy decision to make because I missed my children so very much.
Audrey Hepburn
I get my protein, I get everything I need, I don’t feel like I’m missing on anything.
Bradley Wright-Phillips
There’s a lot of single black women who did the best that they could and that’s a beautiful thing, but they don’t know how necessary a father is in a kid’s life and how much guys miss that deep down inside.
LL Cool J

Charles Dickens
Miss Jean Louise, stand up. Your father’s passin’.
Harper Lee
His eyes softened. “But it doesn’t change what we are to each other. It’s like there’s always been a piece of my soul missing, and it’s inside you, Clary. I know I told you once that whether God exists or not, we’re on our own. But when I’m with you, I’m not.
Cassandra Clare
I taught myself Russian, which was very, very useful, especially for poetry and in fact if you can’t read Pushkin in Russian, you’re really missing something.
Clive James
We live in a culture that insists on “moving on” (even while our loyalty to and love of the franchise and the sequel give away a larger loopiness). But I tend to dwell or obsess or meditate, and I came back to, for instance, the figure of Dickens’s “Miss Havisham” with some (self) recognition if not relief.
Laura Mullen
Oh, my dear Miss Everdeen. I thought we had an agreement not to lie to each other.
Suzanne Collins
Bubba made a sound of disapproval “You’re not supposed to be kissing on anybody else, Miss Sookie” he said “Bill said it was okay, but I don’t like it.
Charlaine Harris
To miss the joy is to miss everything.
Robert Louis Stevenson
You probably can’t get much closer to God than serving a congregation 24/7. At the same time, there’s a different kind of closeness in this present life I have in which I have much more freedom to come and go and to engage some of the silence and stillness and solitude that I was missing before.
Barbara Brown Taylor
I miss the hot spots. I miss the hospital calls. I miss the nursing homes. I miss the really intimate human contact with other people, which I did nothing to earn.
Barbara Brown Taylor
With that, I splashed some water on my face, fixed on a smile, and stepped out. I would find Jerome. I would make him explain to me what I was missing. We would laugh, then we would kiss with tongue, and all would be well.
Maureen Johnson
I think that today, faith drives so much of our politics, that I thought, “If you don’t talk about it, you are missing a whole big part of what is going on politically.”
Barack Obama
What are you? Stupid? Of course they have a guard. What part of ‘You’re a prisoner’ did you miss? (Delphine)
Sherrilyn Kenyon
Complaining about boring football is a little like complaining about the sad ending of King Lear: it misses the point somehow.
Nick Hornby
Percy’d heard stories about amputees who had phantom pains where their missing legs and arms used to be. That’s how his mind felt—like his missing memories were aching.
Rick Riordan
As I review my life, I feel I must have missed the point, either then or now.
Mason Cooley
‘The Missing Picture’ came together slowly, after much provocation and by refusing different forms, until I finally found the right form.
Rithy Panh
Maybe it’s just getting older, but I don’t want to miss things.
Benedict Cumberbatch

Agatha Christie
I think everything is happening all the time, but if you don’t put yourself in the path of it, you miss it.
Gayle Forman
In a sense the car has become a prosthetic, and though prosthetics are usually for injured or missing limbs, the auto-prosthetic is for a conceptually impaired body or a body impaired by the creation of a world that is no longer human in scale.
Rebecca Solnit
To be part of a World Cup=winning squad was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. There was no resentment or sadness from missing the later games.
Moeen Ali
I know what it’s like to miss someone. To feel like you’re just…wandering around, lost.
Julie Kagawa
If I’m not at my desk by 4 AM, I feel like I’m missing my most productive hours. In addition to starting early, I keep an antique hour glass on my desk and every hour break briefly to do pushups, sit-ups, and some quick stretches. I find this helps keep the blood (and ideas) flowing.
Dan Brown
I liked Trump’s honesty because it was different and had a chance to change the business of politics. What I didn’t realize he was missing at the time was a complete and utter lack of preparation, knowledge, and common sense.
Mark Cuban
As wonderful as dogs can be, they are famous for missing the point.
Jean Ferris
I don’t miss much about my childhood. I lived in a good neighborhood, a wacky neighborhood. It was a very boy-heavy neighborhood – kind of Lord of the Flies-y. So many weird things happened, funny things.
Justin Theroux
This is going to make such a great story: How I nursed a pirate back to health and my love saved him,” Miss Ohio said with a contented sigh. “And then we can have our own reality show about our relationship.” – “Beauty Queens
Libba Bray
Many who read their Bibles make the great mistake of confining all their reading to certain portions of the Bible which they enjoy. In this way they get no knowledge of the Bible as a whole. They miss altogether many of the most important phases of Bible truth.
R. A. Torrey
As a comedian, especially one that works as much as I do, there is a lot of sacrifice. People don’t see that I’m away from my family 46 weeks out of the year. I miss all the birthdays and anniversaries and holidays.
Gabriel Iglesias
I always have a pair of Ray-Bans in my bag and lots of pairs at home because they seem to go missing. They’re a real staple.
Kate Moss
Turns out freedom ain’t nothing but missing you.
Taylor Swift
A successful novel should interrupt the reader’s life, make him or her miss appointments, skip meals, forget to walk the dog.
Stephen King
In fact, I believe to a certain extent a person today who starts with just clay, with no drawing and no painting and no figure drawing, still-life drawing, various things, they miss a great deal.
Warren MacKenzie
We should talk about the ultimate cause of war. It’s a question we should never stop asking, because if we do, there’s a chance, however remote, that we might miss an opportunity to reduce the occurrence of war.
Jaron Lanier
The only thing missing in any situation is that in which you are not giving
Marianne Williamson
We must have an economy that does not force the migrant worker’s child to miss school in order to earn…just so the family can eat. That is the moral bankruptcy that trickle-down economics is all about.
Barbara Jordan
I’m a dreamer. I have to dream and reach for the stars, and if I miss a star then I grab a handful of clouds.
Mike Tyson
Most of us spend our lives convinced that there’s something missing: “If only I had a bigger barbecue, more money, a bigger car, a different wife, a different…. If only I could upgrade somehow, then I would be okay.”
Arjuna Ardagh
A culture that only recognizes and rewards the same set of attributes results in less collaboration, creativity, and innovation. If we only reward the loudest voices or the sharpest elbows, then we’re missing out on the full range of talent.
Peggy Johnson
The emotions between the races could never be pure; even love was tarnished by the desire to find in the other some element that was missing in ourselves. Whether we sought out our demons or salvation, the other race would always remain just that: menacing, alien, and apart.
Barack Obama
Boy is he pissed,” said Adrian. “Do you blame him?” asked Christian. “He just lost memerbship in the evil mastermind club. His brilliant plan fell apart, and now his daughter’s missing when he thought she was somewhere safe.” Adrian stayed pointedly silent.
Richelle Mead
I miss CDs. I miss listening to a whole album, even the lame songs that sometimes grow on you.
Carolyn Mackler
Aside from a handful of guys boxing is missing the good trainers, that’s why our sport is so in the air now because we don’t have people who have the capability to not only train fighters but also train and create decent respectable citizens of the world.
Alexis Arguello
This is probably very obvious but I feel very lonely. I miss the person I want to be with the most.
Do you know how sometimes – when you are riding your bike and you start skidding across sand, or when you miss a step and start tumbling down the stairs – you have those long, long seconds to know that you are going to be hurt, and badly?
Jodi Picoult
‘What am I missing?’ is a much more important question than ‘How cool am I?’
Paul Singer
Driving to class with him. All I could think about was that it had been three days since I’d touched his face AND HE SEEMED so fine. I said, to him “you seem like you didn’t miss a beat.” He looked at me and said Sabrina, I’ve missed so many beats, I’ve MADE A RhytHM.
Sabrina Ward Harrison
Its like a finger pointing away to the moon. Dont concentrate on the finger or you will miss all that heavenly glory.
Bruce Lee
She was aware of the movement of his lips as he pressed soundless words in her palm. He released her, and the look he gave her seemed to reveal the depths of his lustful, longing, bitter soul. “Good-bye, Miss Fielding,” he said hoarsely.
Lisa Kleypas
There are certain directors where you know you’re going to be good or you’re not going to be there. There are people where you kind of know that if you miss the mark then it’ll probably not be in the movie and that’s very reassuring.
Christopher Walken
Bring individuality into things, do not just be an imitator. To imitate is to miss life.
A young lady had only one complaint about her good husband: “My husband always praises me to other people,” she said, “Often I hear from friends the wonderful things he has said about me. But I miss something, because he never gets around to saying these some things to me, to my face.”
James Keller
I can’t believe how much this place has grown,” Hazel muttered. The taxi driver grinned in the rearview mirror. “Been a long time since you visited, miss?” “About seventy years,” Hazel said. The driver slid the glass partition closed and drove on in silence.
Rick Riordan
When I played in the Benfica youth teams, they would always call me to play in midfield if someone was missing and I didn’t ever embarrass myself.
This constant need for dominance and strength, having walls up, this kind of silent broker cowboy who needs to have something that can be redeemed before he is actually worthy of love, there is a missing piece to that strength.
Rege-Jean Page
I liked a lot of the things other people liked – Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, Van Halen, AC/DC – but if I compared it to my dad’s music, there just seemed to be elements missing.
Dweezil Zappa
I get scared when I think I’m going to miss my flight. I get obsessed when I actually miss a flight.
Boman Irani
I don’t like to lose a 50/50, in the same way a striker doesn’t like missing chances.
The secret of living a full life is to be fully engaged, moment to moment, to have something in your life that engages you so that there’s nothing missing.
Barbara Feldon
That’s what I miss out of all this synthesized music – it starts to lose dynamics.
Glenn Frey
I just felt something was missing from my vision of what Tycho should eventually be. It took several years of learning new recording and production techniques to get to a point where I felt I could make a record like ‘Awake.’
In my twisted brain, I truly believe that nobody ever really dies, as long as the people that he or she touched continue to spread their legacy. I miss Eddie Guerrero. Eddie Guerrero was a great man. So right now, I don’t want to hear ‘CM Punk’, you know the name I wanna hear.
CM Punk
If I had nine of my fingers missing I wouldn’t type any slower.
Mitch Hedberg
Swiss Cheese is a rip-off It’s the only cheese I can bite into and miss
Mitch Hedberg
In the end the only thing that you can have on your side is time. The only way to gain time is by living it. And if I live expending my energy worrying about other people’s perceptions, then I’m missing my moment.
Demi Moore
A lot of my friends have been collectors, and I owe a lot to them. I’m always interested in sharing collections and learning that way. I used to trade tapes a lot. I still have a few friends who I trade music with, but it’s hard to find the time. I miss that.
Michael Dumontier
How much of life do we miss by waiting to see the rainbow before thanking God there is rain?
Dieter F. Uchtdorf
You’re the missing piece I need The song inside of me I need to find you I gotta find you
Demi Lovato
Anyone who doesn’t sing and dance at every opportunity is missing out on the joy of life.
Dick Van Dyke
Grief is like a moving river, so that’s what I mean by it’s always changing. It’s a strange thing to say because I’m at heart an optimistic person, but I would say in some ways it just gets worse. It’s just that the more time that passes, the more you miss someone.
Michelle Williams
Miss Wormwood: Calvin, your test was an absolute disgrace! It’s obvious you haven’t read any of the material. Our first president was not Chef Boy-Ar-Dee and you ought to be ashamed to have turned in such preposterous answers! Calvin: I just don’t test well.
Bill Watterson
I don’t have a warm personal enemy left. They’ve all died off. I miss them terribly because they helped define me.
Clare Boothe Luce
I’m urgin all daughters to kiss their mothers with those lips that all that lipstick covers. You never too grown up to miss and hug her.
I sighed and stared off without any particular focus. “I miss him so much.” “I’m sorry,” she said. “Will it ever get better?” The question seemed to catch her by surprise. “I…I don’t know.
Richelle Mead
Fate is a ladder on which you cannot afford to miss a single rung. To skip out on even one step would mean you’ll never make it to the top.
Banana Yoshimoto
But I miss screamin’ and fightin’
And kissin’ in the rain
And it’s two a.m. and I’m cursin’ your name
You’re so in love that you act insane
And that’s the way I loved you.
Taylor Swift
Safety lies in silence. It is easier to rectify what you miss by silence, than to secure what you lose by speaking.
Ali ibn Abi Talib
As so much music is listened to via MP3 download, many will never experience the joy of analog playback, and for them, I feel sorry. They are missing out.
Henry Rollins
Faulty execution of a winning combination has lost many a game on the very brink of victory. In such cases a player sees the winning idea, plays the winning sacrifice and then inverts the order of his fellow-up moves or misses the really clinching point of his combination.
Fred Reinfeld
I don’t care,” Clary said. “He’d do it for me. Tell me he wouldn’t. If I were missing-” “He’d burn the whole world down till he could dig you out of the ashes. I know,” Alec said.
Cassandra Clare
Absence from whom we love is worse than death, and frustrates hope severer than despair.
William Cowper
While the United States has largely been missing in action from the diplomatic game, the European Union and Iran have been making progress at developing a formula that would lead to the suspension of Iran’s nuclear enrichment program and the start of serious negotiations.
Earl Blumenauer
All in all, 18 individuals from my family are missing, including my six brothers and my mother, my brothers’ wives, my nephews and nieces.
Nadia Murad
What I really miss these days in music – is the music. I prefer to listen to melodies and songs, not just sounds.
Dave Grohl
When I’m working 16-hour days and I can’t work out, I get angry very easily. It’s because I’m missing all those good endorphins. For me, exercise equals happiness.
Heather Morris
Seeing someone go down, you don’t ever want to see anyone getting carried off on a stretcher or you don’t want to see anyone missing a day or another game.
Jofra Archer
A key ingredient to achieving your goals is to make sure your goals are totally congruent with who you are as a person. Your head and hearts desire must match. It’s such an important step in goal achievement and if we miss it, we can end up travelling a long way down the wrong path!
Rachael Bermingham
When the Christian faith becomes defined by who we are and what we do and not by who Christ is and what he did for us, we miss the gospel – and we, ironically, become more disobedient.
Tullian Tchividjian
If we are not fully ourselves, truly in the present moment, we miss everything.
Nhat Hanh
The model of the teaching hospital, which links research to teaching and service is what’s missing in global health.
Paul Farmer
You know, I might miss some of your witticisms when you’re gone, but one thing I won’t miss? Your overwhelming sense of melodrama and despair. It’s too much even for me.
Richelle Mead
In a field I am the absence of field.That is always the case. Wherever I am, I am what is missing. When I walk I part the air and always the air moves in to fill the space where my body has been. We all have reasons for moving. I move to keep things whole.
Mark Strand
Louis Brandeis really inspired me to write this book [Louis D. Brandeis: American Prophet]. It was a crazy deadline. The editor said I’d miss the hundredth anniversary unless I pumped the thing out in six months, because I’d been delaying and dilly dallying for so long. So he both inspired me to get up early and write.
Jeffrey Rosen
Real data is messy. …It’s all very noisy out there. Very hard to spot the tune. Like a piano in the next room, it’s playing your song, but unfortunately it’s out of whack, some of the strings are missing, and the pianist is tone deaf and drunk- I mean, the noise! Impossible!
Tom Stoppard
I don’t miss racing, but I miss the time to train every day, to do the workouts, because I’m busy with a lot of things now. But if I have space during my day, I want to have a good workout, because my main goal right now is to give all the experience I’ve had in my career back to young riders, to companies.
Sven Nys
I miss her all the time. I know in my head that she has gone. the only difference is that I am getting used to the pain. It’s like discovering a great hole in the ground. To begin with, you forget it’s there and keep falling in. After a while, it’s still there, but you learn to walk round it.
Rachel Joyce
I just sort of feel like John Hughes movies are perfect, but they’re missing violence. If they just had some violence, they’d be perfect.
Ryan Gosling
I miss going to school and having friends; that’s normal for anyone my age. I had a very boring childhood because I never had the opportunity to associate with anybody my own age due to my career. I miss being around kids my own age.
There are only two excuses you can use for missing rugby training – death and docking!
Alex Wyllie
Sometimes, only one person is missing, and the whole world seems depopulated.
Alphonse de Lamartine
I’ve come to realize that however blue my circumstances, if after finishing a chapter of a Dickens novel I feel a miss-my-stop-on-the-train sort of compulsion to read on, then everything is probably going to be just fine.
Amor Towles
What luxury would I take to a desert island? A mirror. It’s true. I’d miss me.
Simon Cowell
What people think of you is none of your business.
Deepak Chopra
I felt like I had lost something. But not something silly, like my keys or my gum; more like my arm or my foot, something that really mattered. Like something that I could live without, but would make life much harder if it were missing. And life is hard enough. Life is hard enough with everything we’re given.
James Frey
It’s a marriage. If I had to choose between my wife and my putter, well, I’d miss her.
Gary Player
You may grow old and trembling in your anatomies, you may lie awake at night listening to the disorder of your veins, you may miss your only love, you may see the world about you devastated by evil lunatics, or know your honour trampled in the sewers of baser minds. There is only one thing for it then – to learn.

Fernando Pessoa
I was on a Japanese designers’ pedestal – considered a maestro. My design was getting closer to a couturier’s work, and I felt like I was missing something.
Yohji Yamamoto
We’re in a good position with the Red Bull juniors. When I look around at what other schemes there are, Red Bull has invested a huge amount in youth and should be commended for giving these guys the opportunity that might otherwise have gone missing.
Christian Horner
Get Christ and get all; miss Christ and miss all.
Thomas Brooks
Please don’t miss me too much. Please don’t be too sad. Find someone else to love, because you have much love to give and it’s a gift that shouldn’t be wasted. You , Jesse, were the rose that made my life sweet.I will wait for you in heaven.
Lurlene McDaniel
The man who doesn’t make up his mind to cultivate the habit of thinking misses the greatest pleasure in life.

Sheila Heti
The thing I miss about performing is being with people.
Tim Federle
I had ordered long legs, but they never arrived. My eyes are weird too, one is gray and the other is green. I have a crooked smile and my nose looks like a ski slope. No, I would not win a Miss contest.
Jane Seymour
Get well cards have become so humorous that if you don’t get sick you’re missing half the fun.
Flip Wilson
They were missing all the enthusiasm, the creativity; that whole excitement about the music was lost. A lot of people are really going back looking for that.
Lester Bowie
The making of money, the accumulation of material power, is not all there is to living…and the man who misses this truth misses the greatest joy and satisfaction that can come into his life — service for others.
Edward Bok
Mutt enjoyed traveling by car, but he was an unquiet passenger. He suffered from the delusion, common to dogs and small boys, that when he was looking out the right-hand side, he was probably missing something far more interesting on the left-hand side.
Farley Mowat
Realist painting has to do with leaving out a lot of detail. I think my painting can be a little shocking in all that it leaves out. But what happens is that the mind fills in what’s missing . . . Painting is a way of making you see what I saw.
Alex Katz
Some of these days, Oh, you’ll miss me honey
Jean-Paul Sartre
It’s always fun having Matt Davis on set. I definitely miss having him around, for sure.
Steven R. McQueen
What is the opposite of two? A lonely me, a lonely you.
Richard Wilbur
Them as ha’ never had a cushion don’t miss it.
George Eliot
I think Aaron [Sorkin] did a remarkable job of plucking Andy [Hertzfeld] out of [Steve] Jobs’ story, to perhaps reflect back on Steve a sense of maybe some things that were missing in Steve’s life. Andy, just by nature, is one of these straight shooters.
Michael Stuhlbarg
Artists can have greater access to reality; they can see patterns and details and connections that other people, distracted by the blur of life, might miss. Just sharing that truth can be a very powerful thing.
I think we are all of the same opinion that “wherever you go, there you are,” and if you are constantly searching for paradise outside of yourself, you will miss what is in your own backyard.
Will Kimbrough
What’s a star when his most important fan is missing?
My job is not to scream and yell, my job is to cheer you and be positive. If you miss four shots, I’m still going to pass to you.
Jason Kidd
Sometimes we miss the miraculous of all that we have been blessed with because we’re so focused on the one thing we don’t have. When this happens, we become disillusioned with all that we do have.
Lysa TerKeurst
England is, after all, the land where children are beaten, wives and babies bashed, football hooligans crunch, and Miss Whip and Miss Lash ply their trade as nowhere else in the western world.
Colin MacInnes
Never slap a man who’s chewing tobacco. Never kick a cow chip on a hot day. Never miss a good chance to shut up.
Will Rogers
Working moms commonly testify that they feel guilty when they are away from their children and guilty when they are not at their jobs. Devoted fathers certainly miss their children deeply, but it does not seem to be with the same gnawing, primal anxiety that often afflicts women.
Camille Paglia
I went to a strict school. Even if a button was missing here and a clip missing there, we were punished.
Amrita Rao
Blossoms are scattered by the wind and the wind cares nothing but the blossoms of the heart no wind can touch.
Yoshida Kenko

Debbie Reynolds
People who don’t want to weather some of the rough periods miss out on something better.
Lisa Niemi
My sisters and I miss our dad dreadfully. But grief, of course, is the price of love.

It is funny how you do not miss affection until it is given, but once it is, it can never be enough; you would drown in it if possible.
Libba Bray
If you shed tears when you miss the sun, you also miss the stars.
Rabindranath Tagore
When I go into a bookstore I always look for books by John Fante. If they are out-of-stock on one of his titles, I tell the clerk to order what is missing. I do it because I want people to read my father’s work.
John Fante
In the dictionary of Cat, mercy is missing.
Jane Hirshfield
Originality is definitely missing from EDM. There are people looking for it and exploring but I feel it’s so big now it is just getting milked. House music is losing all its melody as it becomes more about how dirty the drop is and how energetic it is. It loses touch with what music really is.
Wide awake to the presence of God, I realized I had been so focused on asking why a good God allowed bad things to happen that I was missing out on the nearness of God all along. In becoming preoccupied with the why, I was missing the who.
Margaret Feinberg
I returned from my last L.A. visit to find myself tipping the scales like Homer Simpson when he tries to gain enough weight to qualify as disabled to be allowed to work from home. All I was missing was his kaftan and Fat Guy Hat. So, I decided it was time to diet.
John Niven
And really the purpose of art – for me, fiction – is to alert, to indicate to stop, to say: Make certain that when you rush through you will not miss the moment which you might have had, or might still have.
Jerzy Kosinski
While Muslim men describe themselves as insecure in their harems, real or imagined, Westerners describe themselves as self-assured heroes with no fears of women. The tragic dimension so present in Muslim harems – fear of women and male self-doubt – is missing in the Western harem.
Fatema Mernissi
You know what I miss? More than anything? Coffee. — Plutarch Heavensbee
Suzanne Collins
There have been many accolades uttered about Elvis’ talent and performances through the years, all of which I agree with wholeheartedly. I shall miss him dearly as a friend. He was a warm, considerate and generous man.
Frank Sinatra
So many people glorify and romanticize ‘busy.’ I do not. I value purpose. I believe in resting in reason and moving in passion. If you’re always busy/moving, you will miss important details. I like the mountain. Still, but when it moves, lands shift and earth quakes.
Joseph Cook
I have had the most wonderful time on ‘EastEnders’ and I will miss you all. The show has changed my life and I want you all to continue the good work, because I’ll be at home watching you.
Barbara Windsor
I’m so tired of missing things I don’t have.
Gayle Forman
In an era where digital or virtual is the default, the actual coming together into a physical space has to be an experience that you don’t want to miss.
Charlotte Cotton
I remember disassembling and putting an old analog alarm clock together. It was a lot of fun figuring out why it still worked with that one spring missing.
Markus Persson

Dave Barry

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
Most of us miss our best opportunities in life because they come to us disguised as work.
Nido R Qubein
Let’s just say it’s not a stereotype that Black women are less submissive and harder to deal with. Being around them Black women made me really miss my wife.
Taye Diggs
Lord, what if I miss You? What if I miss You? What if I miss You? Oh, I’m so scared! God, what if I miss You? He answered simply, “Joyce, don’t worry; if you miss Me, I will find you.
Joyce Meyer
We look backward too much and we look forward too much; thus we miss the only eternity of which we can be absolutely sure – the eternal present, for it is always now.
M. William Phelps
The missing toothbrush was nothing compared with the fact that the spacecraft was orientated to ascend, not descend. I would have gone up and up instead of going back down to the ground.
Valentina Tereshkova
Those companies that don’t see the black and brown communities are missing, out of their closed eye, talent, which leads to money and growth. When baseball, football and basketball couldn’t see the field, they missed talent and growth. The same is true in the tech industry.
Jesse Jackson

Alexander Volkanovski
Once you learn what life is about, there is no way to erase that knowledge. If you try to do something else with your life, you will always sense that you are missing something
James Redfield
Anna, falling in love with you was like coming home to a place I didn’t realize I’d been missing all my life. You’re the only person I’ve ever known who accepts me for who I am, right in this moment, faults and all, and isn’t waiting for me to become someone else.
Jennifer Chiaverini
What do I miss? Second-hand bookshops where I can find things I had no idea I wanted. AbeBooks helps, but it doesn’t have that smell.
David Mitchell
That man made me miss my destiny.
Napoleon Bonaparte
After assessing what’s in your closet, make a list of what you need. Not want, but need. Write down the basics missing from your wardrobe. It could be a classic white shirt, a trenchcoat, or the perfect little black dress. Whatever the blank spots, write them down. This will be your reference for shopping.
Nina Garcia
Missing even one night of shuteye will impact your ability to concentrate the next day. And it only gets worse if you deprive yourself of sleep night after night.
Daniel Negreanu
When I look back on my childhood, I think of that short time in Beirut. I know that seeing the city collapse around me forced me to grasp something many people miss: the fragility of peace.
Greg Kinnear
I have found that the reason a lot of people are interested in artificial intelligence is the same reason a lot of people are interested in artificial limbs: they are missing one.

Tarana Burke
I don’t want to just mess with your head. I want to mess with your life…. I want you to miss appointments, burn dinner, skip your homework. I want you to tell your wife to take that moonlight stroll on the beach at Waikiki with the resort tennis pro while you read a few more chapters.
Stephen King
What you want to do is not go to work. You’re not missing a thing. The worst thing I did was start work young.
Jimmy Breslin
There’s a darkness under ‘The Hangover’ because ultimately there’s a missing person and it’s not really that funny. There’s a sort of darkness under it that I love, and still people are laughing as hard if not harder than they did in ‘Old School.’
Todd Phillips
You’re getting into some kind of shape, cop.” Aw, come on, now.” Butch grinned. “Don’t let that shower we took go to your head.” Rhage fired a towel at the male. “Just pointing out your beer gut’s gone.” It was a Scotch pot. And I don’t miss it.
J.R. Ward
Perfume puts the finishing touch to elegance – a detail that subtly underscores the look, an invisible extra that completes a man and a woman’s personality. Without it there is something missing.
Gianni Versace
…they were exactly what the other needed; the missing piece that made everything else magically click into place.
Jennifer McMahon
More people will die from hit-or-miss eating than from hit-and-run driving.
Duncan Hines
One thing that people keep on saying to me is that the wealth and the fame must have made up for missing out on my childhood. But the idea of money – putting a price on your childhood – is ridiculous. You will never get those years back and you can’t put a price on them.
Tom Felton
A massage is just like a movie, really relaxing and a total escape, except in a massage you’re the star. And you don’t miss anything by falling asleep!
Elizabeth Jane Howard

Mary Russell Mitford
It was about grace, she decides, something that has been missing from her own life. … She wants to be the kind of person who can bestow unearned kindness on another, replace bitterness with empathy, forgive only for the sake of forgiving.
Emily Giffin
What entrepreneurs and artists have in common is that they give the world something it didn’t know it was missing.
Daniel H. Pink
I just told my agent to forget all other projects for me. I was waiting for Audrey Hepburn. She asked for me, and I was ready. This could be the last and only opportunity I’d have to work with the great and lovely Audrey Hepburn and I was not missing it. Period.
Fred Astaire
The man of meditation is the man who wastes no time, scatters no energy, misses no opportunity.
Annie Besant
The invitation to Miss Myra St. Claire’s bobbing party spent the morning in his coat pocket, where it had an intense physical affair with a dusty piece of peanut brittle.
F. Scott Fitzgerald
I didn’t care how much work it would take, and I didn’t see the time invested as a waste or like I was missing out on anything. Ballet became my ultimate passion.

Winston Churchill
I’d like to come back because I really miss doing situation comedy.
John Goodman
Now the only thing I miss about sex is the cigarette afterward. Next to the first one in the morning, it’s the best one of all. It tasted so good that even if I had been frigid I would have pretended otherwise just to be able to smoke it.
Florence King
If you’re not reading – with your heart as well as your brain – you will be one stupid grown up. Even worst, you’ll be missing out on one of the best experiences you can possibly have. Nowhere will you meet more interesting people than in books.
James Patterson
I think that the Internet is going to be one of the major forces for reducing the role of government. The one thing that’s missing, but that will soon be developed, is a reliable e-cash – a method whereby on the Internet you can transfer funds from A to B without A knowing B or B knowing A.
Milton Friedman
What a mysterious thing madness is. I have watched patients whose lips are forever sealed in a perpetual silence. They live, breathe, eat; the human form is there, but that something, which the body can live without, but which cannot exist without the body, was missing.
Nellie Bly
A street that you have never visited is a book that you have never read! You never know what you are missing!

Laurie Helgoe
I came out to my parents as gay, and then I realized, you know, four or five years later, that I wasn’t really happy, no relationships were working, and there was something missing in my life, and you know, I was doing drag, performing and stuff, and I realized through that arc that I was much happier doing that.
Candis Cayne
are you saying that the feeling of searching for a missing sock is like searching for love ?
Cecelia Ahern
All too often, when it comes to our own minds, we are surprisingly mindless. We sail on, blithely unaware of how much we are missing, of how little we grasp of our own thought process – and how much better we could be if only we’d taken the time to understand and to reflect.
Maria Konnikova
I realized this is what God has dealt me, and I should be thankful considering all that’s happened to me in my life, but MS caused the movies to stop – stop dead – and I miss it.
Richard Pryor
Its the people you are close to, the ones who love you, the ones who have seen your heart, who have touched your soul – to them, it is obvious that something is wrong or missing. Your heart and soul are missing. They feel it. It hurts them. It kills them.

Joel Parkinson
Anyone who is not working toward the truth is missing the whole point of living.
Gautama Buddha
When we don’t get that escape from our work selves, I think we feel its absence on a deep, almost primal level. Leisure is uncommodified, unoccupied time where we get to be truly free, so feeling bad about missing the weekend isn’t just, “Damn, I didn’t make it to the mall!” It’s a profound loss.
Katrina Onstad
What’s upsetting about an autobiography is that the final chapter is always missing. I mean, you want the death, don’t you?
Ian Mckellen
I came from a very loving home, had a happy life with no great aspirations, but going to the seminary changed me. There was a chunk of my childhood missing. Once I’d realised it wasn’t for me, I still felt a tremendous pressure to continue for fear of letting everybody down.
Johnny Vegas
I know I will never wear sandals now anywhere. I got in a fight in the back of a grocery store when I was really young, like 14 or something. And I remember my feet were so torn up afterwards because I lost my sandals in the middle of the fight. My toenail was missing. It just sucked.
Channing Tatum
I think it’s widely known at this stage that I am willing to put past differences aside and make some money and do the right thing for the fans. If it happens, it happens. It’s all good. If it doesn’t, I truly am not going to miss a beat of my life.
Bill Goldberg
As for inspiration, I find stark fear of missing the deadline very inspiring.
Elizabeth Hoyt

John Kenneth Galbraith
Read, or you will be missing something extraordinary.

Edna St. Vincent Millay
Telling some stories, Miss Leroy says, is committing suicide.
Chuck Palahniuk
Henry was learning that time apart has a way of creating distance- more than mountains and time zone separating them. Real distance, the kind that makes you ache and stop wondering. Longing so bad that it begins to hurt to care so much.
Jamie Ford
Baby, you are gonna miss that plane.
Julie Delpy
Damn referees, I’ll miss them less than anybody.
Abe Lemons

Simu Liu
We both believe in monsters. But all the ghosts and demons are you. And all the angels and genies are you. All the kings, queens, Buddhas, beautiful boys. Inside you. No one can take them away. (Missing Angel Juan.)
Francesca Lia Block
It was missing a piece. And it was not happy. So it set off in search of its missing piece. And as it rolled it sang this song – “Oh I’m lookin’ for my missin’ piece I’m lookin’ for my missin’ piece Hi-dee-ho, here I go, Lookin’ for my missin’ piece.
Shel Silverstein
