Bethany Hamilton
The great gifts of models are not that they’re more beautiful than the next person, it’s that they’re able to be photographed and not be self-conscious.
[Donald] Trump said she [Melania Trump] first arrived in New York City to model in 1996. But Michael Felix, an immigration attorney who specializes in the fashion industry, says if you’re a foreign model with a work visa, it’s unusual to have to return to your home country that frequently.
Hansi Lo Wang

Erin Heatherton

Mary McCarthy
The ability to act as a role model shouldn’t depend on owning a pile of trophies.

Paige Spiranac

Ann Cotton
Annika’s my role model, and I wish in the future I could be like her.
Yani Tseng

Kylie Bax
My goal is never to copy. Create a new style, clear luminous colors and feel the elegance of the models.

Huston Smith
When I start writing a poem, I don’t think about models or about what anybody else in the world has done.

Bunny Yeager
I never expected to be a model. I never expected to be a stylist. Or a designer.

Magic Johnson is my biggest role model and I am his biggest fan. I actually met him recently and ran up to him and said, “man, I am your biggest fan, I’m P.K. Subban,” and he said “I know who you are,” and I was like, “what!” I was blown away just standing there talking to him and he was so nice.

Howard Pyle
The older supermodels sometimes don’t agree with the fact there is a new generation of models. We’re not saying we’re supermodels.

Hailey Baldwin
I’m no model lady. A model’s just an imitation of the real thing.
Mae West
Facebook isn’t helping you make new connections, Facebook doesn’t develop new relationships, Facebook is just trying to be the most accurate model of your social graph. There’s a part of me that feels somewhat bored by all of this.
Sean Parker
I would love to continue to model. It just depends on what opportunities I get, of course, I want to always stay true to who I am and make sure in everything I do God is getting the glory. If modeling is one of those things that keeps presenting itself to me, I would love to do it and continue to get more involved.
Willie Robertson
Much of my work in this period was concerned with exploring the logic of economic models, but also with attempting to reconcile the models with everyday observation.
Joseph Stiglitz
People think that models don’t eat. We do eat. Or at least I do. I just work really hard to stay in shape.
Nina Agdal
I’m not sure we’re presenting ourselves as real role models. I don’t think literature has ever been a real place for role models.
Mac Barnett
O England! Model to thy inward greatness, like little body with a might heart.
William Shakespeare
I unlearned the model of being an editor like Ezra Pound with T.S. Eliot, the unconscious belief that America was the center of the world, and that honesty meant saying what I thought and always being direct.
Lynne Tillman
A drawing should be a verdict on the model. Don’t confuse a drawing with a map.
Robert Henri
The patriarchal model of spirituality was, I think, a necessary step, as a baby learns to crawl before it walks.
Neale Donald Walsch
Role model? I don’t have one. I want to be one.
Kim Him-chan
What matters most to me? To work with my model until I have it enough in me to be able to improvise, to let my hand run free.
Henri Matisse
Guess what, I’m the opposite of a role model!
Natalia Kills
Our role models today
60 years ago would have been examples of what not to be
Prince Ea
Rappers are definitely role models and definitely should get involved. They’re involved in politics whether they like it or not.
Lil B
It’s disgusting. Why would people idolize someone who doesn’t do anything and saying you’re a model/photographer with a digital camera and photoshop does not count as an artist.
Ryan Ross
There are many role models I’ve been around, and kind of the biggest one – there’s a show called ‘Push Girls,’ with all women in wheelchairs, and they’re all really good friends of mine. And one, Angela Rockwood, is still modeling, in a wheelchair. After a car accident.
Jamie Brewer
At home the great delight is to see the clover and grass now growing on places that were bare when we came. These small healings of the ground are my model accomplishment-everything else I do must aspire to that. While I was at that work the world gained with every move I made, and I harmed nothing.
Wendell Berry
The technical explanation is that the market-sensitive risk models used by thousands of market participants work on the assumption that each user is the only person using them.
Avinash Persaud
Detroit can become a national model for urban revitalization, but to do so, it must break free from past development models.
Rashida Tlaib
The Cuban model doesn’t even work for us anymore.
Fidel Castro
I’ve had some very strong female role models, so I think that’s an important thing.
Leah Busque
We need to have women as role models, both inside and outside corporate America’s leading tech companies, leading the path for other women.
Kimberly Bryant
I don’t hold myself out as a role model. I don’t believe that everyone should make the same choices; that everyone has to want to be a CEO, or everyone should want to be a work-at-home mother. I want everyone to be able to choose. But I want us to be able to choose unencumbered by gender choosing for us.
Sheryl Sandberg
When you have to do all the more crappy jobs before, you appreciate all the good work that comes out of that. There are many girls who immediately have a top model career, and there are lots of models who are doing things that aren’t as exciting as doing big campaigns and beautiful magazines.
Saskia de Brauw
What is different and exciting is how much we have learned. We learned we were right that we don’t need the chemical model of agriculture. We know so much more about the life of soil now and we understand how plants synergistically work together with microbes and animals to create healthy conditions.
Frances Moore LappГ©
Millions around the world increasingly see America not as a model of democracy but as relying solely on brute force.
Vladimir Putin
People deal with models like they are children. They think they can pull one over on you. It’s actually funny. I’m always like, I’m about to pull something on you, and you’re so focused on thinking I’m dumb you’re not even going to know.
Kate Upton
I will be a model prisoner, as I have been a model citizen
Edwin Edwards
I actually wanted to become a model agent, and went into what ended up becoming my first agency for a job interview. They ended up suggesting I model instead. I guess I sort of fell into it.
Rila Fukushima
I can’t say the advertising model is obsolete yet but it doesn’t make a lot of sense in the long range.
Jay Chiat
The known fossil record fails to document a single example of phyletic evolution i.e., a species becoming a new species accomplishing a major morphological transition and hence offers no evidence that the gradualistic model can be valid.
Steven M. Stanley
If you are dirty, insignificant and unloved then rats are the ultimate role model.
My father was an immigrant who literally walked across Europe to get out of Russia. He fought in World War I. He was wounded in action.
My father was a great success even though he never had money. He was a very determined man, a great role model.
Arlen Specter
I became a cover girl and an editorial model, and then I became a runway model.
Janice Dickinson
I work from the people that interest me, and that I care about, in rooms that I live in and know. I use the people to invent my pictures, and I can work more freely when they are there.
Lucian Freud
I’m a role model. I have overcome the negativity, and I’m playing.
Lamar Odom
Great coaches are visionaries. Great coaches instill, nurture, and encourage vision, then model and motivate surrender to it.
Thomas G. Bandy
History serves as a model not only of who and what we are to be, we learn what to champion and what to avoid.
Steve Berry
-When I was growing up, Lieutenant Uhura was a major role model for me, a strong black woman on the bridge of a starship… -In a miniskirt, answering the interplanetary telephone?
Suzanne Brockmann
I don’t think you have to be perfect to be a role model.
Rob Lowe
I was the first Indian model to have a career in Paris, Milan and New York. I am the first one to admit I was a novelty.
Padma Lakshmi
I would say that my mother is the single biggest role model in my life, but that term doesn’t seem to encompass enough when I use it about her. She was the love of my life.
Mindy Kaling
Women today are dealing with both their independence and also the fact that their lives are built around finding and satisfying the romantic models we grew up with.
Jane Campion
There is no model, there is only color.
Paul Cezanne
We need a lot more positive Latin role models in movies and in television. They exist! It’s not fiction.
John Leguizamo
[T]he categories of intentionality are nothing more nor less than the metalinguistic categories in terms of which we talk epistemically about overt speech as they appear in the framework of thoughts construed on the model of over speech.
Wilfrid Sellars
Whether you want to or not, you do serve as a role model. People will always put more faith in baseball players than anyone else.
Brooks Robinson
I just think the whole disease model of addiction is crap. It’s rooted in fiction and junk science.
Charlie Sheen
As a model, I really stand for not being a model, if that makes sense.
Cara Delevingne
I think Hollywood, as it’s been, will have to change because the model of Hollywood is “we’ll make this content, and you guys buy it,” but I don’t think that’s the future.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt
It would be gross understatement to say that the Telecommunications Act of 1996 is not a model of clarity. It is in many important respects a model of ambiguity or indeed even self-contradiction.
Antonin Scalia
Uruguay is one of the biggest producers of software. We are breaking with the neoliberal model. We do not believe in free trade.
Hugo Chavez
I have a few friends who are models, but I know a lot of others as well. We usually go out for a drink or clubbing.
Katie Price
There’s a reason why a lot of models turn actors. You have to connect with people, talk to people, be able to be far from home, and you have to be aware of the camera in the same way you would be when modeling.
Camila Morrone
I don’t look like a model, but you have to work with what you got.
Karyn Parsons
We have to have positive male role models.
Donald Miller
Knowing that I’m not a model and I’m never going to be has relieved me of the pressure of looking good. If you don’t establish yourself as McDreamy then you don’t have to live up to it.
Charlie Day
I don’t wanna be a role model. I’d like to be an inspiration.
Tairrie B
For one thing, studying language is by itself a part of a study of human intelligence that is, perhaps, the central aspect of human nature. And second, I think, it is a good model for studying other human properties, which ought to be studied by psychologists in the same way.
Noam Chomsky
Regardless of what happens, I still honor my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, because at the end of the day, that’s what’s important, win or lose. … We need to get back to one nation under God, and be role models for kids.
Tim Tebow
There’s something really interesting about current urbanism: the only model is the universal model, and there is increasingly incapacity to consider the virtues and the qualities that are there, and then to build on them. The only thing is complete transformation.
Rem Koolhaas
The turnover with models – I cannot keep up. And in my day, we had so much personality. We probably caused a lot more trouble, but it was fun.
Carolyn Murphy
Michael and I had great role models. Though his father has passed away, his parents had an amazingly strong marriage, as do mine. Both weathered really tough times. For us it has been normal to stay together through difficulties. We grew up witnessing that firsthand.
Tracy Pollan
My mother has always been my role model, and I believe my survival in the entertainment business is in large part due to my desire to be a strong woman like my mother. She is my hero.
Marie Osmond
No good model ever accounted for all the facts, since some data was bound to be misleading if not plain wrong.
James D. Watson
There is no strong evidence to prove significant human influence on climate on a global basis. The global cooling trend from 1940 to 1970 is inconsistent with models based on anthropogenic carbon dioxide emissions. There is no reliable evidence to support that the 20th century was the warmest in the last 1000 years.
Peter Stilbs
I think the tragedy of Barack Obama’s presidency is that although a lot of people around the world really admire Barack Obama a lot, they don’t admire the American political and economic model as much as they used to.
Peter Beinart
I’m an actress, model, and singer.
Tika Sumpter
As it happened, I had a friend who was a good person who liked to present himself as a dreadful one. Using him as a role model, I created the first Buck Godot strip.
Phil Foglio
Nature eschews regular lines; she does not shape her lines by a common model. Not one of Eve’s numerous progeny in all respects resembles her who first culled the flowers of Eden. To the infinite variety and picturesque inequality of nature we owe the great charm of her uncloying beauty.
John Greenleaf Whittier
The neutrality and clarity of an engineering drawing is a better model for teaching about art than all the uncontrollable drivel about the cabbala and metaphysics and the ecstasy of sainthood.
George Grosz
A smart model is a good model.
Tyra Banks
Where did I learn to understand sculpture? In the woods by looking at the trees, along roads by observing the formation of clouds, in the studio by studying the model, everywhere except in the schools.
Auguste Rodin
So the need for another economic model is urgent, and if the climate justice movement can show that responding to climate change is the best chance for a more just economic system.
Naomi Klein
Wikistrat is my ninth start-up, so I’ve been through this process a few times. You have to go with what works. The power of example is compelling, so model the ideas that you want someone to understand.
Thomas P.M. Barnett
There are plenty of models who have children.
Arizona Muse
Even professional, paid carers aren’t always models of saintly behaviour – and they know they can knock off at the end of their shift to go home, take an uninterrupted shower, and have a normal conversation with someone.
Laurie Graham
The average woman is a size 14 but ‘plus’ models start at a size six. The industry wants you to feel bad about yourself, and they succeed. I find it to be disgusting.
Whitney Thompson
Most high-level models that I’ve ever met are actually well-travelled; they’re cultured, and no guy laying a cheesy line on them is actually going to impact their world.
Hannah Simone
All models have faults – that doesn’t mean you can’t use them as tools for making decisions.
Myron Scholes
Right after the show tonight, I’m going to the New York City car show. You get to see the models that will be crashed next year by drunken Secret Service agents.
David Letterman
I look at my kids as the Harry Potter Generation. There’s a sense of justice about that, in beating Voldemort. It’s a classic tale of good versus evil. To have a role model like Harry Potter that says you can defeat evil, but still be a complicated human being. That gives me a lot of hope.
Mike Dirnt
I’ve never hung around with any models. I’ve always hung around with my friends from school and kept myself to myself.
Georgia Salpa
Women should feel happy with their bodies and not live with the stigma that comes from not looking like models in fashion magazines.
And I was very shy as a kid; if you sang me ‘Happy Birthday,’ I would cry. Quite shy. So the idea of being an actor, much less a model, was just out of this world.
Cody Horn
NYFW is not just about the designers and the runway. It is a massive production from the celebrities in attendance, the assistants backstage prepping the models before they walk to the epic after-parties!
Jeffree Star
Remember, the prince is like a mirror exposed to the eyes of all his subjects who continually look to him as a pattern on which to model themselves, and who in consequence without much trouble discover his vices and virtues.
Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor
Thank God we have the example of Martin Luther King, Jr. People need role models. They need to see examples of people in peoples’ lives, and that’s why it’s so important not just to commemorate his life, but to study and try to live by the principles of that life.
Coretta Scott King
Pretty women wonder where my secret lies. I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size But when I start to tell them, They think I’m telling lies. I say, It’s in the reach of my arms The span of my hips, The stride of my step, The curl of my lips. I’m a woman Phenomenally. Phenomenal woman, That’s me.
Maya Angelou
If you’re looking for a book that will spike in sales and then go away and then spike again when it comes out in paperback, your normal model, I definitely won’t give you that.
Simon Sinek
I did not have any role model. I could not learn anything from the female voice that male poets used, a voice which is more “feminine” than female. Nor could I learn anything from ancient female poetry that only sang about love, the feeling of farewell and longing for others.
Kim Hyesoon
People do make assumptions about models. That’s their issue, not mine. It doesn’t bother me because I’m comfortable enough in my own skin – I know who I am.
Lily Cole
We Americans are world leaders and we must lead by example – particularly in times that require careful deliberation before any precipitous action – lest we fail to walk in the shoes of those we might injure.
Peter Yarrow
Each person must live their life as a model for others.
Rosa Parks
The main reasons for dwelling .. on Hayek’s model is simply that it has certain properties, absent from most others, that conform exceptionally well to recent neurobiological evidence on memory and that make it particularly suited to the current discourse.
Joaquin Fuster
It feels great to be a role model and I’m very careful with the things I do. I’m not perfect, I do make a lot of mistakes, but I try my best.
Angie Stone
Not for models. SuicideGirls is a mystery to me because I thought only women ran the site.
Richard Kern
I also feel I’m a positive role model by not putting my education on hold.
Natalie Portman
If people want me to be their role-model, it would be nice.
Cher Lloyd
The ‘person’ is not an interchangeable part. The ‘citizen’ is. … The person is harking back to a pre-print model. It’s what the hippies were.
Terence McKenna
It’s good for kids to look up to sporting role models.
Adam Peaty
I know that being seen as a role model means taking responsibility for all my actions. I am human, and of course, sometimes I make mistakes. But I promise that when I fall, I get back up.
Jennifer Lopez
And to this day, my Mom is my role model.
Paul Ryan
Your home is regarded as a model home, your life as a model life. But all this splendor, and you along with it… it’s just as though it were built upon a shifting quagmire. A moment may come, a word can be spoken, and both you and all this splendor will collapse.
Henrik Ibsen
The Waterfall Model is wrong and harmful; we must outgrow it.
Fred Brooks
Don’t worry that children never listen to you; worry that they are always watching you.
Robert Fulghum
Rejection is, of course, part of any successful model’s career, as ironic as that sounds. It’s how you pick yourself up and get on with the job.
Erin O’Connor
In my family, as in all dysfunctional families, instead of parents who act as strong and nurturing role models for their children, you get these needy people who use their children. I was the kid who tried to take on the marriage.
John Bradshaw
My role models weren’t holding steering wheels and mashing gears on Sunday. They wore burgundy and gold with names like Art Monk and Darrell Green.
Dale Earnhardt Jr.
I’ve never isolated role models based on gender. I have more male role models due to the mere fact that I’ve done business with more of them and they’re leaders within the verticals I work. Of those, Tony Hsieh, CEO of, is an entrepreneur and personal friend that I have a great deal of respect for.
Amy Jo Martin
The human body is a magazine of inventions, the patent office, where are the models from which every hint is taken. All the tools and engines on earth are only extensions of its limbs and senses.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
I wanted to show that an African-American artist could make it in this country on a national level in the graphic arts. I want to be a strong role model for my family and for other African Americans.
Jerry Pinkney
Human models are more vivid and more persuasive than explicit moral commands.
Daniel J. Boorstin
Health care is one-sixth of our economy. If the government can control that, they can control just about everything. We need to understand what is going on, because there are much more economic models that can be used to give us good health care than what we have now.
Ben Carson
I got good grades but no particular comment stands out in my memory, I’m afraid. I was one of those annoying and rather boring model pupils.
Stephen Curry
I wish people would stop hitting Po,” whispered Bitterblue. “Well,” Giddon said. “Yes. I’m hoping Skye is following my model. Punch Po; go on a long trip; feel better; come back and make up.
Kristin Cashore
We need to do a better job of mentorships and role models to bring other young women along so that there’s more women in our boardrooms, there’s more women here in the United States Senate and in Congress. I think there’s an important role for women to play.
Catherine Cortez-Masto
Typically, when you look for role models, you want someone who has your interests and came from the same background. Well, look how restricting that is. What people should do is take role models a la carte. If there’s someone whose character you appreciated, you respect that trait.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
I was naturally skinny and had braces, so I wasn’t a cute model.
Amanda Seyfried
In my model, important interference phenomena arise when individual strata come into contact. These chaotic fluctuations are, I suppose, what my music is really about.
Brian Ferneyhough
She’d like to model or maybe act or star in a magazine. Before she signs any big contracts, she better learn how to read.
Thomas Dolby
Everyone I’m photographing, I feel like I’m remaking a family, in a way. My brothers and sisters are my heroes. So many of my models resemble them.
Ryan McGinley
People deserve to have their experiences understood in a genuine bio-psycho-social approach. All too often, this is ignored in favor of what is a very reductionist, bio-medical, model.
Peter Kinderman
I think the rise of Asian models is an absolutely beautiful thing.
Tyra Banks
Education is the art of helping young people to completeness; for the Christian, this means education is helping a young person to be more like Christ, the model of all Christians.
Basil Moreau
For some reason, everyone says “fashion is responsible for skinny models.” I don’t believe that myself. I believe consumers dictate commercial success and trends in a capitalistic society. So I believe if consumers wanted to see – like, who decided that Barney the Dinosaur was going to be a million-dollar industry?
Kelly Cutrone
Before starting my own investment funds, the only models I was aware of were those of Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger. Their models made a lot of sense to me, so I cloned them.
Mohnish Pabrai
Daymark asks the right question. So we get it right the first time. We didn’t want to overbuy or underbuy. They understood our business and our data. Daymark knew exactly which models we should order – not too much, not too little.
Mike Michaud
I absolutely refused to make out with the gorgeous male model.
Trisha Yearwood
I used to live with Teri Toye in the ’80s – a really gorgeous transsexual. She won Girl of the Year in 1986 [I think] as a Chanel model and she introduced this whole way of slinky, slow-motion modeling. It was amazing that the girl of the year was actually born male.
Nan Goldin
I think along the way, as we treat nature as model and mentor, and not as a nuisance to be evaded or manipulated, we will certainly acquire much more reverence for life than we seem to be showing right now.
Amory Lovins
These parents, they think I’m a role model for their kids, that their kids look at me as some sort of idol. But it’s the parents’ job to make sure their kids don’t turn out that shallow.
Britney Spears
Passion is the model of all my actions.
Philippe Petit
If all the shows on television were about happy, functional relationships, first of all I don’t know how many role models there are out there, sadly. And secondly, who would watch? Drama is conflict.
Andrea Roth
It grieves me when I see a priest or a nun with the latest model car.
Pope Francis
I beam at the idea of me at the wheel of a luxury yacht, surrounded by models and moguls, sipping cool Gavi di Gavi as we meander down the French Riviera.
Joe Lycett
I think, in general, models tend to do their favorite faces or their comfortable face, but your facial expression is just so important. You don’t want to have an editorial of 20 photos where it’s just you giving a ‘Zoolander’ face.
Coco Rocha
From the start, I used a different kind of girl in Nars campaign images. My choice to use models of colour such as Alek Wek, Naomi Campbell and Karen Park Goude was absolutely a deliberate one. I felt that makeup was universal and should apply to everybody.
Francois Nars
Making me into a role model is placing too much importance on what I see as a work in progress.
PJ Harvey
I am far from perfect, but I have something else. I heard that people in the industry are longing for more personality and diversity. Perhaps I am more a ‘character’ than a model.
Saskia de Brauw
There was one point in high school actually when I was on the chess team, marching band, model United Nations and debate club all at the same time. And I would spend time with the computer club after school. And I had just quit pottery club, which I was in junior high, but I let that go.
Rainn Wilson
Every time I await a model, even when I am most pressed to time, I am overjoyed when the time comes and I tremble when I hear the key turn in the door.
Eugene Delacroix
Some people are trapped by the belief that love comes in finite quantities, and that our kind of love exhausts the supply upon which they need to draw. I do not accept competitive models of love, only additive ones.
Andrew Solomon
We’ll find out soon enough,” Xavier growled. “You don’t see too many V Star 250s around here” “How do you know the bike model?” I asked. “I’m a boy. We like engines
Alexandra Adornetto
People will continue to make movies. But I do think the economic model of the studio movie is closing in on a kind of systemic collapse.
Matthew Specktor
So many people are diverted to doing what people want photographed – fashion models, buildings, mountains – they get to thinking those photographs are good.
Rondal Partridge
I think in terms of educating a group of readers, MFA programs are very good. I just think the model of MFA programs in which a young poet goes through the program, publishes a series of books, gets teaching jobs, that’s a bit at risk.
Edward Hirsch
Social media just plays this massive factor in all of our lives now, and also, the bloggers and influencers are coming in and taking our jobs as models.
Devon Windsor
We’ve come a long way, but we’ve still got a long way to go, so we need to give our time to promote the game and be role models – to make the next generation see us and want to become us.
Toni Duggan
Google has a very powerful and new advertising model that, for them, prints money.
Nicholas Negroponte
French laicite is probably aggressive and antagonistic to the religion, but there are other models of secularism in the world where there could be reconciliation between religion and secularism.
Rashid al-Ghannushi
Our national experience in Americanizing millions of Europeans whose chief wish was to become Americans has been a heady wine which has made us believe, as perhaps no nation before us has ever believed, that, given the slimmest chance, all peoples will pattern themselves upon our model.
Ruth Benedict
At that point it certainly would be called abstract. That is to say, you had a model and there’d be one or two or three people there drawing the model but otherwise you had abstractions all around the room, even though the model was in front of you.
Lee Krasner
I want to be a representative and be a role model for the Asian American community.
Jeremy Lin
Costa Rica remains peacefully and firmly committed to the well- being and safety of our population. We promote a model of development based upon harmony with nature; solidarity and social inclusion; economic and trade opening; development of our human resources, and innovation.
Laura Chinchilla
Yes. I was the first female colonel. I enjoyed being that kind of role model for young women watching the show. A woman can be a colonel! A woman can be in charge! Those were new ideas then.
Erin Gray
Jesus, as a philosopher is wonderful. There’s no greater role model, in my view, than Jesus Christ. It’s just a shame that most of the people who follow him and call themselves Christians act nothing like him.
Bill Maher
We learn as much by others’ failings as by their teachings. Examples of imperfection is just as useful for achieving perfection as are models of competence and perfection.
Madeleine de Souvre, marquise de Sable
Funny thing happens, [Melania Trump] gets so unfairly – the things they say, I have known her for a long time, she was a very successful person, a very successful model. She did really well.
Donald Trump
Even if you have a brain predisposed to liberalism, you might end up with some conservative friends or find inspiring conservative role models who could be very influential on you, and that could send you down a different track in life.
Jonathan Haidt
The theory of objectivism claims that there are certain things that most people in society can agree upon. A model is pretty. A lawyer is smart. Our society is based upon objectivism. It’s how we make rules and why we obey them.
Portia de Rossi
My role models in the business were the older guys on my team when I first got there: Gray Scott, Adrian Smith, Roland Taylor. These were the guys who took me under their wing, and really schooled me in terms of what the business was about.
Julius Erving
When you factor in population growth, it’s clear that the mobility model that we have today simply will not work tomorrow. Four billion clean cars on the road are still four billion cars, and a traffic jam with no emissions is still a traffic jam.
Bill Ford
Gary Speed was honourable, trustworthy and a joy to manage. He was honest, he was a role model and he was a great bloke. An avid learner, he recognised responsibility and he was always fully committed.
Howard Wilkinson
What you need to do is protect the structures and dynamics that are helping the people choose. The only thing that we can do is to respect the will of the people when it comes to majority processes. It is not for us to impose a model, it is not for us to impose answers to some critical questions.
Tariq Ramadan
Bedford definitely stands out as a community that’s designed to appease to a broader range of budgets and lifestyles. The opportunity for a diverse neighborhood that encourages community activity and social interaction is what we feel makes Bedford a model community in this industry.
John Myers
Balance is the perfect state of still water. Let that be our model. It remains quiet within and is not disturbed on the surface.
Some models of self-control are able to achieve their serenity easily because the soul fires never burn brightly to begin with.
Joseph J. Ellis
I believe sans serif typefaces – today upheld as models of neutrality and legibility – were called “Grotesques” in the 19th century because people thought they were hideous. But now we’re used to them.
Michael Bierut
My family has been my biggest inspiration – they are true role models in my life and career and they always will be.
Hrithik Roshan
Most of our models have just walked in off the streets, although I also find them on countless trips to Europe – particularly Scandinavia. I operate by instinct. It’s a process I cannot explain, but the prettiest girl on the block is not always the best model.
Eileen Ford
True wisdom consists in not departing from nature and in molding our conduct according to her laws and model.
Seneca the Younger
A business model describes how your company creates, delivers and capturesВ value.
Steve Blank
Growing up, I never accepted my curves, but when I got the opportunity to become a plus size model, I was able to appreciate my voluptuous body and love myself, not only on the outside, but on the inside.
Hayley Hasselhoff
A woman can be very beautiful and an ideal model and she will photograph incredibly well, but she’ll appear in film and it won’t work. What works is some fusion of physical beauty with some mental field or whatever you call it. I don’t know.
Oliver Stone
They can bring the technology in, then you can sell to the enterprise when they want to have better control, better security… you still have the same biz model as a traditional enterprise sw company, but the way to get into the company is through the end user.
Aaron Levie
I think Google is the most successful attention merchant – profitable attention merchant in the history of the world, most successful advertising-only based company – most profitable. They started a very idealistic, beautiful company in many ways, but they didn’t have a business model.
Tim Wu
I looked at 73 climate models going back to 1979 and every single one predicted more warming than happened in the real world.
John Christy
Early Charlie Munger is a horrible career model for the young, because not enough was delivered to civilization in return for what was wrested from capitalism. And other similar career models are even worse.
Charlie Munger
I’ve never been a model, I was an actress for like a minute, but I’ve always been a writer. That’s where I’m going to stay.
Karrine Steffans
To see cartoon-me positioned (alphabetically) amongst so many of my women heroes and role models … well, I just broke down and cried. Happy tears. I surely hope that this one-of-a-kind collection of radical American women reaches the hands of all children who want to grow up and become amazing women.
Kate Bornstein
I mean there’s still also an element of the audience looking for role models. In my day, when I started, if you were an action hero, you were a little bit of a role model like the person.
Dolph Lundgren
I had, of course, no model for that sort of woman being married, but I can make that up as I go along.
Elizabeth Moon
Of course there are some models who are not good, but it has been proven that some models can act. Look at Kim Basinger, Sharon Stone or Andie MacDowell, who were all models – they are really fantastic actresses.
Claudia Schiffer
To be a good model, I’d need a lot more confidence… and more confidence to be more bare.
Jill Hennessy
Conventional wisdom, fooled by our misleading “physical intuition”, is that the real world is “continuous”, and that discrete models are necessary evils for approximating the “real” world, due to the innate discreteness of the digital computer.
Doron Zeilberger
Stale is stale and borrowed is borrowed, no matter how original your models may have been.
Robert Silverberg
By simply capitalizing on core strengths and knowledge, companies and entrepreneurs can engage in an emerging business model that will enable them to create – and demonstrate – real, sustainable social impact in society.
Muhammad Yunus
The best material model of a cat is another, or preferably the same, cat.
Norbert Wiener
If writing is language and language is desire and longing and suffering . . . then why when we write, when we make shapes on paper, why then does it so often look like the traditional, straight models, why does our longing look for example like John Updike’s longing?
Carole Maso
I love that fact that Kayla actually persevered and went back to her sport. That’s the role models. Sometimes, things like that happen and what do you do? Do you crumble with your life or do you go forward?
Dana Hee
I’d like to be more of a bad influence than a role model. I’m getting lots of boys to wear eye-liner again which is good.
Brian Molko
I already feel a bit annoyed at myself for writing screenplays. It’s a bit, I don’t know, model-singer-dancer-actress that went to a posh school. There’s something too weirdly predictable about it.
Emily Mortimer
The Lourie Center is an important model to consider…(in) mental health care… It is imperative that we use this knowledge to help ensure that every young child in our society has the opportunity to get an emotionally healthy start in life.
Tipper Gore
I’m going to try and model myself after Kurt Russell and Jodie Foster.
Haley Joel Osment
To give you an idea what it feels like to be going in with some of the best baseball players of all-time, I mean it is fantastic. I have to say this about them, there are so many of these guys up here that were my role models, people I looked up to, people I wanted to be like.
Dave Winfield
I think that not only do saints make poor role models, they are incapable in one sense of identifying radically with those of us who are mere mortals. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s mortality says to us that here’s a figure who got up every day of his life facing tremendous odds and yet overcame them.
Michael Eric Dyson
Since 1987, there are now many more of us as at the higher levels with families, so I think, as role models, we are encouraging more women to stay within banking and rise up through the ranks.
Ruth Porat
At this critical time, I am grateful to Sandra Bullock for once again demonstrating her leadership, compassion and belief in our global humanitarian mission. Sandra continues to enable our lifesaving work and is a model for personal generosity.
Sandra Bullock
I’m a role model for lots of young girls.
Jennie Finch
Basketball, and the people I have met through the game have far and away had the largest impact on my life. Almost every positive role model I have ever had was a coach, mentor, or teammate.
Ashley Graham
Looking natural takes so long! If you look at the runways, the look for models is predominantly natural, isn’t it?
Olivia Wilde
There’s not a single business model, and there’s not a single type of electronic content. There are really a lot of opportunities and a lot of options and we just have to discover all of them.
Tim O’Reilly
I liked models since I was 3 years old. As I grew older, I started developing a penchant towards makeup, pedicures, etc. I used to carry out the procedures at my home itself.
Pratyusha Banerjee
Globalization and the neoliberal economic model have already been rejected in Latin America; it simply hasn’t been a solution for our people. At the same time, Latin countries like Venezuela and Argentina are anti-imperialist and anti-globalization, and yet their economies are growing again.
Evo Morales
I think that rather than talking about particular models, of which there could be a huge number, we should talk about basic principles of democracy. After all, even within the West, there is no single standard and single model.
Vladimir Putin
Smog is affecting larger parts of China, and environmental pollution has become a major problem, which is natures red-light warning against the model of inefficient and blind development.
Li Keqiang
Basically, I didnt know anything about fashion. I was very nerdy; I went to Bryn Mawr and never even noticed models when I was 21.
Fatima Siad
We do not develop habits of genuine love automatically. We learn by watching effective role models – most specifically by observing how our parents express love for each other day in and day out.
Josh McDowell
The American conception of advertising is to arouse desires and stimulate wants, to make people dissatisfied with the old and out-of-date and by constant iteration to send them out to work harder to get the latest model – whether that model be an icebox or a rug or a new home.
Bruce Barton
Holding back technology to reserve business models is like allowing blacksmiths to veto the internal combustion engine in order to protect their horseshoes.
Don Tapscott
A lot of women were betting on me because there were so few role models and I let them down. They had put me on a pedestal. I maybe enjoyed being in that limelight, but I couldn’t reverse what I had done.
Paula Broadwell
I like Betsy Ross as a model, too, the quilting bee, sitting around with your friends making art, asking what they think, so that you get the benefit of everyone’s opinions and so it’s not just about you in your you-dom.
Kiki Smith
If you don’t look like an airbrushed model … you have to look past it. You look how you look. What are you going to do?
Jennifer Lawrence
In one way, I’m sympathetic to the institutional reluctance to face the music. I’d give a lot to mark my weight to ‘model’ rather than to ‘market.’
Warren Buffett
I don’t think that we have to look like the models in the magazines because they are 19 year olds and they have been photo shopped extensively, not but given what I, we have as the raw material, take care of it.
Isabel Allende
I knew at a very early age, about 6 years old, that there was something different about me. But being young and not being exposed to people who had gender dysphoria, or role models that you see on TV today, I didn’t know what it was.
Zoey Tur
So that’s when I saw the DNA model for the first time, in the Cavendish, and that’s when I saw that this was it. And in a flash you just knew that this was very fundamental.
Sydney Brenner
Models are supposed to be a muse to you. Why is a muse always the same body type, the same look? It’s boring.
Coco Rocha
All models are wrong, and increasingly you can succeed without them.
Peter Norvig
I always find Victoria’s Secret models a bit weird.
Edie Campbell
Models eat. They’re crazy about moderation, but they eat.
Chrissy Teigen
. . . the fact that [English] has shed most of the old grammatical forms which time has rendered useless and scarcely intelligible, has made English a model, pointing the way which must be followed in building the Interlanguage. . .
Sylvia Pankhurst
The West has become the world model; developing countries are dreaming of living like us, which is impossible. They should reject our model, because it is not sustainable. Developing countries should even give us the example, but unfortunately that’s not what happens.
Yann Arthus-Bertrand
Don’t let people tell you to do it this way. You are on the verge of figuring out hybrid models — with companies and nonprofits, markets, government, crowd-sourced philanthropy. The capitalist system as we know it is not working.
Jacqueline Novogratz
I find it weird when [model] agents say, ‘You’re the only black girl booked for the show. Isn’t it great?’ Why is it great?
Jourdan Dunn
And I can’t tell you how many women from a certain age group – they would be in their 30s now, 20s and 30s – tell me about how I was their role model when they were young girls.
Lindsay Wagner
Artists aren’t role models. If you want to do that, go into politics.
Ken Jeong
In the 1980s, there weren’t a lot of role models for gay teenagers.
Mary Cheney
Now I’m a symbol of what to be and how hard to work. I have heads of major labels say, “I wish you could teach our artists how to do it.” At one point I was the punching bag of what not to be, and now I’m the model of what to be.
Kenny Chesney
I think the best role models for women are people who are fruitfully and confidently themselves, who bring light into the world.
Meryl Streep
You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.
R. Buckminster Fuller
We are proud to be role models.
Geeta Phogat
I believe in civil rights, but not in special privilege laws to allow flaunting homosexuals to become role models for children.
Anita Bryant
God makes it really clear that society and civilization is really held together by the glue of families… When a man and a woman come together and say ‘I do,’ they are committing for a lifetime to love each other and to model what love is and what forgiveness is and what joy is to their kids.
Kirk Cameron
Everyone wants to be a movie star or a model, to be in the papers, but few realise just what hard work it is, getting up early, and so on.
Helen Mirren
Every sweet, humble young model is only one campaign away from becoming a fashion monster.
Coco Rocha
Just the title of ‘American Idol’ is something that people can look up to. I’m not Saint Scott, I’m not Mr. Perfect, but I want to be that role model.
Scotty McCreery
Weight doesn’t matter. It really doesn’t. I mean, it does if you’re a model or whatever.
Meg Cabot
When I was young, I was looking for people to look up to – role models I could respect.
Peter Falk
It’s important for me to show my children the richness of life and be a role model. I find that my organizational and management skills are tested more at home than at work!
Susan Wojcicki
there are only two basic ways of structuring the relations between the female and male halves of humanity. All societies are patterned on either a dominator model – in which human hierarchies are ultimately backed up by force or the threat of force – or a partnership model, with variations in between.
Riane Eisler
I discovered by working with actual glass models that the important thing is the play of reflections and not the effect of light and shadow, as in ordinary buildings.
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe
The most effective young Facebook users, however — the ones who will probably be winners if Facebook turns out to be a model of the future they will inhabit as adults — are the ones who create successful online fictions about themselves.
Jaron Lanier
Madonna is my role model shes such a powerful woman. I love Gwenyth Paltrow, shes an actress I aspire to be like. And, of course, my mom. She drove me from New Jersey to New York every day for commercials so I could get where I am today.
Kirsten Dunst
I think it’s important for little girls growing up, and young women, to have one in every walk of life. So from that point of view, I’m proud to be a role model!
Sally Ride
I suppose he’ll just have to do,” she amended. “You’ll have to suffer in silence with your male model…I feel for you.” “Oh, stop it, Molly.
Alexandra Adornetto
They all wanted to model for me because they knew I wouldn’t take advantage of them.
Bunny Yeager
Whatever we read from intense curiosity gives us the model of how we should always read. Plodding along page after page with an equal attention to each word results in attention to mere words.
Ernest Dimnet
We were taught to be dependable, responsible, the top of our classes at school, the most organized and efficient babysitters in town, the very miniature models of our hardworking farmer/nurse mother, a pair of junior Swiss Army knives, born to multitask.
Elizabeth Gilbert
Companies and leaders are role models – not just with the business community – but in the broader world.
Chip Conley
The four laws of learning are: the first is demonstration of what you want. The second is the criticism of the demonstration. The third is the imitation of the correct model, and the fourth is repetition, over and over until it becomes habit where is you don’t think about it.
John Wooden
I’d love there to be more larger models, but it’s just not going to happen. Designers love to design for slim girls.
No one suggests that writing about science will turn the entire world into a model of judgment and creative thought. It will be enough if they spread the knowledge as widely as possible.
Isaac Asimov
As an African-American male born with a couple of strikes against you because of your skin color, I think it’s very, very important to have some positive role models around, especially male influences.
Omari Hardwick
That comes from most people having an American film model in their heads which is nothing but a total illusionary masturbatory massage.
Peter Greenaway
There are no rules, no models; rather, there are no rules other than the general laws of Nature.
Victor Hugo
Fabricating answers to unanswerable questions is the domain of religion. A deity model is not the default alternative to a scientific mystery.
Graham Kendall
I wanted to be an actress, and I wanted to be a model.
Delta Burke
Be a light, not a judge, be a model not a critic. Little by little, your circle of influence will explode and you will avoid the emotional metastasizing cancers of complaining, criticizing, competing, comparing and cynicism, all which reflect victimization, all of which are the opposite of being proactive.
Stephen Covey
Some people start modeling because they want to be models and they want the parties and the recognition, and then there are people like me. I come from a simple family, and for me getting into modeling was a chance to make money and create a business.
Gisele Bundchen
I have a lot of trouble understanding all the detail of finance and administration – but if you combine intellectual and professional capacity with a social conscience, you can change things: countries, structures, economic models, colonial states.
Evo Morales
I’m a massive comic book fan. I was buying weekly installments of “The Watchmen”, and “From Hell”, and “Parallax” and “Johnny Nemo”. I was a huge comic book fan as a kid and I still am. Me and my youngest son are both comic book nerds together; make models and stuff.
Jude Law
Simply stated, girls want role models and mentors.
Anna Maria Chavez
I’m pretty confident in who I am. I know that for parents everywhere, it’s my job to be a role model, and I’m going to do the best I possibly can.
I would love to see all agencies connect to models more for who they are and can be as opposed to what they’ve done.
Indya Moore
You’ve got to have models in your head and you’ve got to array you experience – both vicarious and direct – onto this latticework of mental models.
Charlie Munger
A responsibility to be a role model as a father yes, as a man, as a public figure, yes. That responsibility just leads me to do what I feel is right and to conduct myself with the moral standards, principles, and integrity that were instilled in me by my family.
No man can quite emancipate himself from his age and country, or produce a model in which the education, the religion, the politics, usages, and arts, of his times shall have no share.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
For far too long economists have sought to define themselves in terms of their supposedly scientific methods. In fact, those methods rely on an immoderate use of mathematical models, which are frequently no more than an excuse for occupying the terrain and masking the vacuity of the content.
Thomas Piketty
Role is something people play, model is something people make, both of those things are fake.
Tupac Shakur
Even in normal life, I’m not the skinniest model.
Cindy Crawford
I never really thought about being an actress or being anything like that. I was always a bit scared as well because of the thing about models becoming an actress and all that.
Gisele Bundchen
You can involve yourself in electronics, computers, puzzles… there’s a lot of creativity and brain working. There’s a lot to model trains that people don’t realize.
Gary Coleman
To model our political system upon speculations of lasting tranquility, is to calculate on the weaker springs of the human character.
Alexander Hamilton
I like hair that’s been ‘worn in’ because it’s much easier to deal with…. I actually don’t like it when [models] come in with this beautiful, thick, glossy hair. I think, Oh, no! I can’t do a thing with this!
Guido Palau
I fear that we are beginning to design ourselves to suit digital models of us, and I worry about a leaching of empathy and humanity in that process.
Jaron Lanier
Ice cubes sell more alcohol for the distilling industry than sexy models in cheesecake poses.
Wilson Bryan Key
Models have a sell-by date. There are certain jobs I don’t do anymore, like the young, sexy, cute things for teenagers, or even 25-year-old girls. I go in a different bracket now.
Heidi Klum
I’ve always loved food too much to be a model.
Jennifer Lawrence
A new model is starting to take root and grow, one in which consumers have more choices, more tools, more information, and more power to guide these choices. I call this emerging model The Mesh.
Lisa Gansky
Tunisia will continue to be a source of influence, not through its size but through the ideas and the models that it represents.
Rashid al-Ghannushi
Art owes its origin to Nature herself… this beautiful creation, the world, supplied the first model, while the original teacher was that divine intelligence which has not only made us superior to the other animals, but like God Himself, if I may venture to say it.
Giorgio Vasari
We perceive through our senses a person, a situation or an event, and in an instant, we project our mental models – our fears, background and experiences – onto that perception. This often results in cognitive errors, which means we judge and respond incorrectly.
Elizabeth Thornton
My wish is to construct a system of sociology on the model of celestial mechanics, physics, and chemistry.
Vilfredo Pareto
All subjects are the same. I memorize notes for a test, spew it, ace it, then forget it. What makes this scary for the future of our country is that I’m in the tip-top percentile on every standardized test. I’m a model student with a very crappy attitude about learning.
Megan McCafferty
And nothing can we call our own but death
And that small model of the barren earth
Which serves as paste and cover to our bones.
For God’s sake, let us sit upon the ground
And tell sad stories of the death of kings.
William Shakespeare
It seems that so much writing is being done in the nineteenth-century model, where every connection has to be thoroughly explained.
Chuck Palahniuk
It might take a while but I think the rap game is the people that can do it. We’re all role models more than athletes because athletes don’t wear clothes like the kid in the hood and they don’t walk and talk like the kids in the hood. We’re closer to them than anybody because they can look at us and see them.
When I see my kids totally into their Legos, it brings me back to the days I was hanging out and playing with my monster models. It brings me there in a second.
Kirk Hammett
I wish we questioned the aid model as much as we are questioning the capitalism model. Sometimes the most generous thing you can do is just say no.
Dambisa Moyo
If you aren’t building a social enterprise, I don’t know what your business model will be in 5 years
Angela Ahrendts
I think if you ask people why they watch me, there would be some common thread among all of them that I’m somewhat of an awkward older sister. I have a teen, mostly female demographic. How that happened, I don’t know. But I think they see me as some sort of bizarre role model, and I’ll keep trying to do that for them.
Grace Helbig
Growing up as a South Asian-American, I didn’t have any female role models.
Payal Kadakia
I do not much believe in education. Each person ought to be his or her own model, however frightful that may be.
Albert Einstein
With innovative companies and products like Tencent’s WeChat messaging service and novel approaches to artificial intelligence and various business models, China rapidly is becoming an innovator in its own right.
Adam Lashinsky
As business models evolve, as the way you distribute content evolves, as the ability to do things online changes in terms of pricing or trial or sample, I think we’ve definitely always been out in front of the rest of our competitors.
Bobby Kotick
I really believe that’s one of the many reasons that God had put me right in the middle of the Backstreet Boys. There are so many stars today that don’t realize the impact they have on young people. Being a superstar is great, as long as you can be a positive role model.
Brian Littrell
Growing up, I really didn’t have a lot of role models.
Adam Rippon
Napster has pointed the way for a new direction for music distribution, and we believe it will form the basis of important and exciting new business models for the future of the music industry.
Barry Diller
Vegetation is really controlling what happens…whereas the emphasis in the climate models has always been on the atmosphere.
Freeman Dyson
My favorite models are always going to be the people who are pushing the boundary and challenging what it is to be a model.
Barbie Ferreira
Look and image were very important – there was already incredible pressure to look feminine and sexy but I wanted to look individual and strong. I didn’t have any role models except Little Nell from ‘The Rocky Horror Picture Show.’
Toyah Willcox
All my favorite artists and fashion icons and models are from the Nineties. Everybody was just so fearless.
I have never heard of anyone who was a “model person” in all aspects of his or her life, intellectual life or other aspects; nor do I see why anyone should care. We are not engaged in idol worship, after all.
Noam Chomsky
I realize now how lucky I was, in the total absence of role models, to have only men to rebel against. Today’s women students are meeting their oppressors in dangerously seductive new form, as successful congenial female professors who view themselves as victims of a rigid foreign ideology.
Camille Paglia
I take my role as an ambassador for the sport, and as a role model for boys, girls, mommies, daddies – whoever it is – very, very seriously. I know the impact my role models have had in my life, and I’m in a really beautiful position to be able to be that for others.
Kerri Walsh
A lot of the ways of advertising a book – the cover, whether somebody sees it on a subway or sees it in a bookstore – those things are going to rapidly diminish as we move to an electronic model.
Gary Shteyngart
The story of the gospel is so much better than the legal model suggests. It tells us that we are created as God’s partners, not God’s enemies. Sin does a lot of damage to that partnership – it disables us, it discourages us, it disturbs us – but it never destroys the bond that exists between God and humanity.
Doug Pagitt
Users and entrepreneurs building new business models off the blockchain means that there are competing interests on how best to scale the network. Linux, also an open source software project, had similar growing pains.
Brock Pierce
A modest critique of an age in which an actor is the President, in which fashion models are asked for their opinions, in which getting into a nightclub is seen as a significant human achievement.
Jay McInerney
Since geometry is co-eternal with the divine mind before the birth of things, God himself served as his own model in creating the world (for what is there in God which is not God?), and he with his own image reached down to humanity.
Johannes Kepler
My daughter has fulfilled all of my dreams, because she has a BA and MBA in business. She’s both a financial analyst and a plus-size model. She has the best of both worlds because, in modeling, you have to have something to fall back on.
Beverly Johnson
Vegas is a testing ground for the human soul. What are our values, especially in a time of crisis? Work with Cirque du Soleil, and you learn that quickly. The former socialist street performers who now throw parties by the pool with Brazilian models, oh yes!
Robert Lepage
People are still under the misguided impression that models don’t eat. Not sure about the other girls, but I do!
Chrissy Teigen
Our economy is at war with many forms of life on earth, including human life. What the climate needs to avoid collapse is a contraction of humanity’s use of resources; what our economic model demands to avoid collapse is unfettered expansion. Only one of these sets of rules can be changed, and it’s not the laws of nature
Naomi Klein
Let us guess that whenever we read a sentence & like it, we unconsciously store it away in our model-chamber; & it goes, with the myriad of its fellows, to the building, brick by brick, of the eventual edifice which we call our style.
Mark Twain
I think it’s important to have a greater purpose behind modeling. Don’t model just because you’re pretty and you want to make money. Every girl wants that. You have to stand out from everyone else and on those really hard days, that is really the only thing that will keep you going.
Whitney Thompson
I tend not to worry about what the perception is. I think people have their different views over different things. They have different opinions over different business models and over different business interests.
Bruno Zheng Wu
I could get drunk and run around Nashville naked. But I won’t because I want to set a good example for my fans. I think they deserve to have a role model.
Taylor Swift
Never hesitate to imitate another writer – every person learning a craft or an art needs models. Eventually you’ll find your own voice and will shed the skin of the writer you imitated.
William Zinsser
I try to, at least once or twice a week, have someone over and model, usually a dancer friend or a poet or someone to come over and just stay still for me. Depending on how exhibitionist they are, it will determine the finished work. And I say, “You’re the muse; you come up with it. I’ll draw you however you want.”
Eric Drooker
I grew up at a time in Hawaii where there were trans women around, so there were visible role models for me. At the same time, as a low-income trans girl of color, there were so many things that I didn’t have access to. I didn’t have access to a great education. I didn’t have access to affordable healthcare.
Janet Mock
[E]ach of our voices has something unique to say. Not only should I not mold my life to the demands of external conformity; I can’t even find the model by which to live outside myself. I can only find it within.
Charles Taylor
In the 1980s, there were occasions when it made sense to say, ‘it is too difficult to maximize the likelihood function, and besides if we do, it will blow our model out of the water.
Thomas J. Sargent
Buildings are always better than drawings and models.
Rafael Moneo
The Blood She Betrayed is unique, and Shahkara, the character, is one of the most engaging strong female role models I’ve seen in a long time. This girl can handle herself! The plot is full of ingenious twists, turns and surprises, and I look forward to reading the next book in the series.
L. J. Smith
In 1966 the ACS formulated a State Model Cancer Act which was instrumental in the enactment of anti-quackery laws now enforced in 9 states…In California (it is a) felony…The use of unproven methods is also a criminal offense in Colorado, Illinois, Kentucky, Maryland, Nevada, North Dakota, Ohio, and Pennsylvania.
Jane Brody
I’m very particular who I work with. I’m not interested in portraying women with a cliched, generic look. I’m interested in a model who I can take a portrait of.
Tim Walker
At first, being a female role model really terrified me. But it hasn’t turned out to be an awful burden. I get a lot of letters from women who tell me that, after watching Xena, they have bought the Harley-Davidson they always wanted or left an abusive relationship.
Lucy Lawless
I pass for a hypersensitive, reclusive neurotic, which I may well be, but I hope the year won’t come when my anxieties and fatigue will destroy my love of this life, of all the things that inspire me–a line of music, a face in a Vermeer portrait, a character in an opera, or a model born in Harlem.
Yves Saint Laurent
Because the private sector has evolved processes and metrics for growth over many generations, for-profit models are more likely to efficiently accomplish their goals.
Joe Lonsdale
I can’t think of a better model for Haiti rebuilding than Rwanda.
Paul Farmer
I love the fact that they [girls ]are into Superman and Green Lantern and Batman and everything, and they really do have all those toys as well, but I don’t want all their role models to be men.
Mark Millar
All countries will eventually need to rebuild their growth models around digital technologies and the human capital that supports their deployment and expansion.
Michael Spence
Most models are emotionally abandoned. They need me. I’m their mother.
Eileen Ford
Watergate provides a model case study of the interaction and powers of each of the branches of government. It also is a morality play with a sad and dramatic ending.
Bob Woodward
Never hesitate to imitate another writer. Imitation is part of the creative process for anyone learning an art or a craft. Bach and Picasso didn’t spring full-blown as Bach or Picasso; they needed models. This is especially true of writing.
William Zinsser
And it’s absolutely great, when everything comes together with the hair, the dresses and the makeup and the models and the music and the presentation. I can’t get over these girls. They look wonderful. But by the time we finish with them, they look like they came from another planet. And I just think it’s great.
Vivienne Westwood
The best way to support dreams and stretch is to set apart small ideas with big potential, then give people positive role models and the resources to turn small projects into big businesses.
Jack Welch
Back when I was a professional model-maker at Industrial Light & Magic, my specialty was hard-edged construction – spaceships, miniature sets, and architectural stuff. These objects were sometimes just 12 inches across yet needed enough detail to fill a movie screen.
Adam Savage
Abstract pictures are fictive models, because they make visible a reality that we can neither see nor describe, but whose existence we can postulate.
Gerhard Richter
The impulse to paint comes neither from observation nor from the soul (which is probably blind) but from an encounter: the encounter between painter and model: even if the model is a mountain or a shelf of empty medicine bottles.
John Berger
Most fashion models do not look good in bikinis because they’re too thin.
Kelly Cutrone
I didnt grow up drawing runway models and deciding what they should wear.
Theophilus London
As athletes, it is our responsibility to be role models. But we are not superheroes.
I realised there were no good role models for kids. Popeye eats spinach, but also smokes and hits people.
Magnus Scheving
I don’t really look at myself as a role model. And I just am the way I am and if people want to look up to me, they do. By no means do I like to give a negative image either.
Jordan Knight
Models used to describe and predict inflation commonly distinguish between changes in food and energy prices – which enter into total inflation – and movements in the prices of other goods and services – that is, core inflation.
Janet Yellen
I did model for a little while part-time, but I wasn’t a bloody model, and I am definitely not that horrible thing ‘model-turned-actress.’
Tamsin Egerton
I have role models, but I take the attributes of the people that I admire, and I use them to create my best self.
Marley Dias
My role models are every single woman that steps inside of the cage – inside of an octagon, inside a ring, or on a mat – and proves to themselves and to others that they can do what they need to do. Those are my heroes. Those are my sheroes. Those are the people that I look up to.
Fallon Fox
The relationship between Canada and the United States serves as a model for the world. Our shared values, deep cultural ties, and strong integrated economies will continue to provide the basis for advancing our strong and prosperous partnership.
Justin Trudeau
We Icelanders are an excellent animal model for humans. This is exactly the way you find common disease genes.
Kari Stefansson
Clearly, I’m committed to women’s issues and stories and promoting gender equality. I have two incredible role models in Jenji [Kohan] and Shonda [Rhimes].
Alysia Reiner
God, what if TMZ got hold of the truth about me? What a liar I am, I mean? What kind of role model am I? I make Vanessa Hudgens look like Mother Freaking Teresa. Minus the whole nudity thing. Because I’m not about to take naked photos of myself and send them to my boyfriend.
Meg Cabot
Let’s face it: Most of us don’t realize it, but we are failing our kids as reading role models. The best role models are in the home: brothers, fathers, grandfathers; mothers, sisters, grandmothers. Moms and dads, it’s important that your kids see you reading. Not just books – reading the newspaper is good, too.
James Patterson
You can look at the cost structure of an incumbent company and discover: where are they not going to be able to drop their prices… because that business model is fundamental to the existence of the company.
Aaron Levie
The Western model for a meeting is you have an agenda and you come in and everyone says things.
Howard Rheingold
I didn’t even know guys modeled before that. I thought Fabio was the only male model, and I really didn’t fit that bill.
Ashton Kutcher
When we can see things as they are, without projecting our mental models and fears, we are being objective. When we can understand and consider another person’s point of view, we are being objective.
Elizabeth Thornton
…the basic stuff of the universe, at its core, is looking like a kind of pure energy that is malleable to human intention and expectation in a way that defies our old mechanistic model of the universe–as though our expectation itself causes our energy to flow out into the world and affect other energy systems.
James Redfield
Different nations have different ways of forming their national identity. In America, for instance, the model was one of homogeneity breaking from different backgrounds, and the whole effort was to blend them all together like a wonderful making of a milkshake!
Kabir Bedi
Trees die from the top”. No one should ever become a strategist unless he or she is willing to have his or her character serve as a model for subordinates
Peter Drucker
BMW models are more powerful on average than competitors. This is precisely what we are aiming for: less fuel consumption and more driving pleasure.
Norbert Reithofer
Profanation and violation are part of the perversity of sex, which never will conform to liberal theories of benevolence. Every model of morally or politically correct sexual behavior will be subverted by nature’s daemonic law.
Camille Paglia
Is it not dangerous to have students study together for years, copying the same models and approximately the same path?
Theodore Gericault
Biology has progressed tremendously due to the model that Darwin put forth. But the black boxes Darwin accepted are now being opened, and our view of the world is again being shaken.
Michael Behe
It’s shot by Ben Rayner who I think is very talented at doing portrait photography as well as fashion photography. His images never look like a model. You know, it doesn’t look like a faceless model just wearing whatever. There’s always personality that comes through. That was quite important for me to capture.
Alexa Chung
If Good approved of his creature’s creation, He breathed the painted clay-model into life by signing His name.
Peter Greenaway
I’ve tried to take the opportunity to be as positive a person as I can be, as positive role model as I can be.
Kyan Douglas
The main thing that 99designs is about is choice. Its a fantastic model that eliminates risk for small business owners and puts designers on equal footing.
Matt Mickiewicz
To be honest, I don’t think I’m the best role model in the world. I’m pretty immature sometimes.
Louis Tomlinson
Let’s be very clear: Strong men – men who are truly role models – don’t need to put down women to make themselves feel powerful. People who are truly strong lift others up. People who are truly powerful bring others together.
Michelle Obama
My parents are good role models because they’ve worked hard and gave me a happy childhood.
Sophie Ellis-Bextor
We must reduce all the emissions that are destroying the planet. However, that requires a change in lifestyle, a change in the economic model: We must go from capitalism to socialism.
Hugo Chavez
Gay men should not adopt the sophomoric model of heterosexual dating; gay men should always have sex first.
John Rechy
Very often, when you’re listening to a piece for the first time, you’re listening through a model of other pieces that you know. At a certain point, a piece becomes idiosyncratic and you start to understand it on its own terms.
Paul Lansky
Develop your visual memory. Draw everything you have drawn from the model from memory as well.
Robert Henri
Affectation is certain deformity; by forming themselves on fantastic models, the young begin with being ridiculous, and often end in being vicious.
Robert Blair
There isn’t any problem with little girls. And there isn’t any problem with young women or adult women. I mean, they are model citizens. It’s the guys that create all of the problems in our culture. And so it’s the guys that have to be reprogrammed. Not the women.
Rush Limbaugh
How many murders are committed in Gauteng, or in the Western Cape, in a month? A week? A day? An hour? But of course we are not allowed to know for sure. In close and direct imitation of his apartheid models, Selebi ensures that no statistics about crime may be published regularly in the press.
Thabo Mbeki
It is the faithfulness of God that allows epistemology to model ontology.
John Polkinghorne
You can be a model to the masses, but to go to the higher levels of influence, you have to work with individuals.
John C. Maxwell
I don’t think it would be crazy to have a model or an entity model on the Reconstruction Finance Corp.
Warren Buffett
In my day, there were 20 models in all of India, three of whom were male. One of whom was me.
Milind Soman
Like one who draws the model of a house beyond his power to build it who, half through, gives o’er, and leaves his part-created cost a naked subject to the weeping clouds.
William Shakespeare
When I’m sitting in a casting room in Paris, I’m not the thinnest model. Sometimes I’m not the most flat-chested, either.
Andrej Pejic
I grew up watching cinema in my country that wasn’t telling stories about us, and we had to find a way to connect, and our references, our role models had nothing to do with us. And I’m so glad that it’s changing.
Diego Luna
I think right now the way society’s going, I think role models are important, and kids need direction. If I didn’t have that direction growing up, who knows what I could be doing, because I’ve been lost many times in my life, and I’ve had to have someone guide me back on the right path.
Jeremy Lin
I feel responsible for certain fans, but I’ve never said I’m a role model.
Jamie Campbell Bower
Models are just mannequins seeking validation at the hands of sleazy fashion people.
Amber Heard
The role model approach to social change is no substitute for challenging unjust employment practices, educational policies and housing.
Patricia Hill Collins
If we allow the celebrity rock-star model of leadership to triumph, we will see the decline of corporations and institutions of all types. The twentieth century was a century of greatness, but we face the very real prospect that the next century will see very few enduring great institutions.
James C. Collins
Two sittings a day of my models and I’m totally exhausted.
Paul Cezanne
Governments, whether right or left, have become commissioners-in-chief, nudging and cajoling networks into preferred business models without the slightest sensitivity or awareness of what the public wants or the TV industry is capable of.
Armando Iannucci
Maybe I’ve had a sheltered life and career, but I have so many role models to look up to. It’s normal that I would strive to build my own career.
Lauren Bush
A revolution is to bring on change and we’re spiritual people trying to bring on spiritual change. It might sound like I’m a dreamer, but economic models have reached their height of evolution. Technology has evolved. What hasn’t evolved is mankind’s spirituality; everything is from 3,000 years ago.
Damian Marley
I never set out to be a role model, but I guess parents like it because I am dedicated to school.
Tatyana Ali
Each of us, famous or infamous, is a role model for somebody, and if we aren’t, we should behave as though we are — cheerful, kind, loving, courteous. Because you can be sure someone is watching and taking deliberate and diligent notes.
Maya Angelou
I think kids should have a mentor and a role model, but that they shouldn’t take one person’s opinion to be what we call final assessment or judgment about how life is supposed to be.
Sean Paul
When I model, I pretty much blank. You can’t think too much or it doesn’t work.
Paulina Porizkova
My father who was there in the house, he wasn’t at all a role model. And my mother, who was trying to protect me from him as best she could, she took me everywhere with her, which gave me a tremendous amount of sensitivity to the things women go through.
Tyler Perry
I was very skinny, braces; so I never thought I would be a model.
Candice Swanepoel
YouTube has proven it can flourish in a model where there is more autonomy, and in that way I think it is an example and a potential model for other areas of the business.
Salar Kamangar
Of course sportsmen and women are not only great role models, they are great fashion models too, as they are at the peak of physical perfection.
Giorgio Armani
There are so many male models who are working in high fashion, and they are broke. It’s good to be a woman.
Andreja Pejic
The only reason we make good role models is because you guys look up to athletes and we can influence you in positive ways. But the real role models should be your parents and teachers!
Dante Hall
A model is done when nothing else can be taken out.
Freeman Dyson
Up until the First World War, when people turned anti-German, Germany had been described by American political scientists as the model of democracy.
Noam Chomsky
[Models] have the thinnest thighs, the shiniest hair and the coolest clothes, and they’re the most physically insecure women probably on the planet.
Cameron Russell
A theory has only the alternative of being right or wrong. A model has a third possibility: it may be right, but irrelevant.
Manfred Eigen
Unlike Hegel’s progress model of history, which moves by stages, each containing its own logic of growth and decline, the economic model develops as the simple function of one money-variable over time, with a long-term trend which increases monotonically.
John Carroll
Industrial jobs are disappearing, and they will continue to disappear owing to productivity gains from automation. Thus, social models that were created to fit industrial and early service economies will no longer be viable. As the industrial workforce shrinks, the social model founded on it will go, too.
Kersti Kaljulaid
How reliable are the computer [climate] models on which possible future climates are based? Not very. All will agree that the task of modeling climate is vast, because of the estimates that have to be made and the rubbery quality of much of the data.
Don Aitkin
The United States will continue its efforts to improve our understanding of climate change – to seek hard data, accurate models, and new ways to improve the science – and determine how best to meet these tremendous challenges.
George H. W. Bush
I hope that with the success of the transition to democracy in Tunisia that we will export to Egypt a working democratic model.
Rashid al-Ghannushi
During the 1950s, I decided, as did many others, that many practical problems were beyond analytic solution and that simulation techniques were required. At RAND, I participated in the building of large logistics simulation models; at General Electric, I helped build models of manufacturing plants.
Harry Markowitz
So he that despairs, limits an Infinite Power to a Finite Apprehension, and measures Providence by his own little, contracted Model.
Robert South
My mom was a model. She had me at 20, so she was a young mother.
Michael Kors
Becoming a dad means you have to be a role model for your son and be someone he can look up to.
Wayne Rooney
If you are given a chance to be a role model, I think you should always take it because you can influence a person’s life in a positive light, and that’s what I want to do. That’s what it’s all about.
Tiger Woods
I went from not knowing anything to becoming really curious and wanting to know and respecting people in the industry, realizing how hard they work. I will always be thankful for ‘Top Model’ for that.
Fatima Siad
A charming fellow, and so clever: he models himself on me.
Herbert Beerbohm Tree
Has your drawing the meaning you saw in the model at first?
Robert Henri
We believe democracy to be the only real guarantor of stability and we have sought to create a ‘Jordanian model’ that might also inspire others in our region. I wish democracy and peace to be my legacy to my people and the shield of generations to come.
King Hussein I
The current model is global suicide. We need a revolution. Revolutionary thinking. Revolutionary action. Natural resources are becoming more and more scarce.
Ban Ki-moon
I think a smile can make your whole body. Models, they look fabulous, but they don’t smile, and they look so mad.
Serena Williams
Do we secretly idolize our imagined opposites, yearning to become the role models for others we know we could never be for ourselves?
John Waters
It doesn’t matter if you are model or not; confidence is something that comes from inside.
Erin Heatherton
The models for me were more the folk-rock singers of the ’60s and ’70s.
Carly Simon
My generation had Doris Day as a role model, then Gloria Steinem–then Princess Diana. We are the most confused generation.
Erica Jong
Then he took me off Jeannie and he gave me Millie the Model. That was a big break for me. It wasn’t doing to well and somehow when I got on it became quite successful.
Dan DeCarlo
That decision to use basically all white models, reveals a trait that is unbecoming to modern society. It can no longer be accepted…
Bethann Hardison
I was too much of a victim of the model I created. I tried Change to Win and helping Obama, and then I just ran out of Andy Stern ideas.
Andy Stern
In front of the model I work with the same will to reproduce truth as if I were making a portrait. I do not correct nature, I incorporate myself into it; it directs me. I can only work with a model. The sight of human forms nourishes and comforts me.
Auguste Rodin
I am a good model because I have mastered my craft. I have accepted my body, I know it well and I know how to move in front of the camera.
Crystal Renn
By going to Pluto, we have a chance to anchor, with real data, models of the early evolution of Earth’s atmosphere.
Alan Stern
The western model of growth that India and China wish to emulate is intrinsically toxic. It uses huge resources – energy and materials – and generates enormous waste… it remains many steps behind the problems it creates. India and China have no choice but to reinvent the development trajectory
Sunita Narain
It is a significant acknowledgment that the way people are watching television is changing and the model is quickly changing
Jeff Zucker
As women, we can’t look old. We can’t be fat. We’re supposed to look like the 14-year-old models in Vogue, who are younger and younger and skinnier and skinnier, and they are air-brushed and contoured and Photoshopped.
Erica Jong
If you just rely on one model, you tend to amputate reality to make it fit your model.
David Brooks
The Proverbs 31 woman is not the model of a perfect woman. She is the model of a committed woman under God.
Tony Evans
The European girls, like the Russians, tend to stick together, but there’s never any rivalry. Sometimes there’s a little bit of tension with the older girls because they might feel a little threatened by the younger models, but it’s not between personalities.
Abbey Lee Kershaw
I work with a host of amazing women who act as role models, who give their spare time freely to encourage these girls to give things a go, to reach out and take a chance and to explain that should they fail, well that’s just a part of life.
Esther McVey
It is universally appreciated, I think, that theorists are able to tweak their assumptions in order to reach any conclusion they wish. The believability of the conclusion depends not only on the fact that it was reached but on how hard the theorist had to tweak the model to get there.
David M. Kreps
I think that when you are in the limelight it is part of your obligation to be a good role model. A lot of kids look up to you, and you are given a God-given talent, so it is your responsibility. It isn’t hard to deal with. I never have to think twice about doing anything.
Curtis Joseph
You just have to make sure the model you’re working on does not undersell your product.
Michael Eisner
The model of publishing is changing and its happening right now, but most publishers are so frightened, they just dont know how to embrace it.
Tahir Shah
The animators working with these 3D models, they’re artists, right? They’re great at what they do. They’re artful in how they move characters about.
Aaron Ehasz
Wrestlers were my role models. And now to think that I am that person to somebody, that brings me joy.
Rich Swann
I watch America’s Next Top Model in the gym and go, ‘If I stay an extra 15 minutes, I will look like that girl!’
Jennifer Love Hewitt
It’s a job. It’s not a hobby. You don’t write the way you build a model airplane. You have to sit down and work, to schedule your time and stick to it. Even if it’s just for an hour or so each day, you have to get a babysitter and make the time. If you’re going to make writing succeed you have to approach it as a job.
Rosellen Brown
I grew up really loving horror movies and genre movies. I was a big fan of Universal Monsters movies, read Famous Monsters magazine. I built monster models and creature effects…
Gregory Nicotero
You have to be at the forefront of culture to create art, which they call “product,” and Hollywood is not. It’s this very old business model, which I think is dying in a lot of ways.
Rose McGowan
Who is my role model and how long can I keep this going? I just move around and do different things and come back to music, try making films and come back to music, write children’s books and come back to music.
Madonna Ciccone
Microsoft, Yahoo and others are helping to institutionalize and legitimize the integration of censorship into the global IT business model.
Rebecca MacKinnon
Communication can’t always follow the top-down model. With the fluidity of information in business today, leaders need to be masterful listeners; they need to be able to receive as well as send.
Joseph Badaracco
No one came to our neighborhoods with stand-up jobs and showed us there’s a different way. Maybe, had I seen different role models, maybe I’d’ve turned on to that.
We often feel that we lack something, and seem to see that very quality in someone else, promptly attributing all our own qualities to him too, and a kind of ideal contentment as well. And so the happy mortal is a model of complete perfection–which we have ourselves created.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
I mean, we have to read books or we’ll make mistakes. If we read stories of how other people lived, we can figure out better ways to live. I mean we can look at other people’s lives and not make the same mistakes they made. Or we can, like, use their examples as models for ourselves.
Rachel DeWoskin
The Internet produces new business models and also reinvents traditional business models.
Marc Ostrofsky
Times have changed since George Herbert… but the principle and spirit in which he ministered as a priest remains an inspiration and model for all priests.
Arthur Middleton
I don’t have role models or watch much TV. I go to awards ceremonies but often I don’t even know who the people are. I think that’s good, because then you don’t have preconceived ideas about them.
Christopher Parker
I don’t know that I have any role models now that are fixed. Definitely my mom – she’s the coolest. She’s worked really hard her whole life and I just think she’s got a great attitude. Moms just know so much it’s so silly.
Larisa Oleynik
A business model that hasn’t been tried before is always interesting, even if it’s likely to fail.
Michael Arrington
The intellectual force of the West is still dominant, but other cultures are getting stronger. I expect that we will develop a new way of thinking in architecture and urban planning, and that less will be based on our models.
Rem Koolhaas
We talk sometimes about the impact we hope we’re having, that little girls – and boys – at home are watching us on TV. We can be role models.
Karen Bardsley
Tony Gonzalez is one of the best ever and changed the way tight ends have transitioned themselves from college to the NFL. He can do a little bit of everything. He’s a guy who you want to model yourself after.
Virgil Green
I never thought a role model should be negative.
Michael Jordan
I was into comics because these were my real male role models, even though at the time, I didn’t know it.
Brian Michael Bendis
People have asked me a lot of times, because I didn’t hit a lot, how long a dozen bats would last me. Depending on the weight and model I was using at that time – I would say eight to 10 cookouts.
Bob Uecker
The world in which you were born is just one model of reality. Other cultures are not failed attempts at being you; they are unique manifestations of the human spirit.
Wade Davis
Hume develops his arguments by a series of models. He doesn’t call them models in the pretentious way in which we envelope, very often, pure banalities in this jargon
Lionel Robbins, Baron Robbins
In my parents I saw a model where they were really always communicating, doing things together. They were really kind of a team. I wanted some of that magic myself.
Bill Gates
In my teaching, I enjoyed creating models to clearly communicate my thoughts.
Erno Rubik
Remember that a painting – before it is a battle horse, a nude model, or some anecdote – is essentially a flat surface covered with colours assembled in a certain order.
Maurice Denis
They need a role model. They need a star!
Imelda Marcos
My attempt has been really to, beyond making a record of contemporary life, which is what you inevitably do, is trying to make beautiful books – books that are in some way beautiful, that are models of how to use the language, models of honest feeling, models of care.
John Updike
By deafening ourselves to the emotional consequences of violence we have become confused by its relationship to sex. We have come to believe that violence equals aggression, and we have come to base our model of sexuality on our model of violence… converting an act of aggression into an act of consensual sexuality.
Derrick Jensen
There are great slender models, great tall models, Amazonian models, great busty models – my point is models of all shapes and sizes, age, ethnic background should be embraced and celebrated.
Erin O’Connor
I’ve deliberately tried to calm myself down because eventually I want to be a good role model to my kids.
Robbie Williams
Mother Teresa- cream. Exemplars, exemplary models we can learn from and become more like, but we don’t have to imitate them. We can become more authentically ourselves, impeccable and unselfish, and beneficial to many like a wish fulfilling jewel.
Surya Das
Certainly when I got to medical school, I had role models of the kind of physicians I wanted to be. I had an uncle who, looking back, was probably not the most-educated physician around, but he carried it off so well.
Abraham Verghese
If you say something that is a little unsafe to say but you feel strongly and passionate about it, a lot of people can attack you and call you a bad role model just because they don’t agree with your views, but in reality we’re all different and we’re all unique in our own way and we all have different thoughts.
Melanie Martinez
Any successful company has female models.
Dan Bilzerian
I think audiences ultimately want something new. I think the business model for a franchise is such that it’s very low risk because you have data and studios love data.
Gore Verbinski
From zoning to labor to food safety to insurance, local food systems daily face a phalanx of regulatory hurdles designed and implemented to police industrial food models but which prejudicially wipe out the antidote: appropriate scaled local food systems.
Joel Salatin
The finest lives in my opinion are the common model, without miracle and without extravagance.
Michel de Montaigne
Fortunately, human beings are remarkably diverse models to work from
David Brin
My son craves picture books about Transformers and Ninja Turtles and the Hulk; they show one fantastic creature smashing or zapping another into smithereens on page after page. They are dull and ugly and show no interesting stories or models of conflict resolution or character building.
Russell Smith
It’s an epidemic. Instead of socialising and having proper conversations, we’re staring at pictures of models in bikinis and wondering how they look like that. It’s like self-loathing.
Whitney Wolfe Herd
If you look at a multi-player game, it’s the people who are playing the game who are often more valuable than all of the animations and models and game logic that’s associated with it.
Gabe Newell
I don’t date my girlfriend because she’s a model. I date her because I love her.
Adam Levine
I think, overall, the NBA and its players are really conscious about our role and what we do as role models.
Baron Davis
I sometimes look at the careers of other… I guess I could call them contemporaries or maybe close artists; you know, the 4 or 5 guys who go to New York City and get a loft and work together and use each other as models and that sort of thing and wait for years and years to get married. Maybe I just wasn’t that definite.
Mike Royer
I honestly do feel that I am a role model for young people.
R. Lee Ermey
The easiest way to make something cool is to get cool people to do it. Part of this might mean the president has to forget tensions with opponents, or people like Arnold Schwarzenegger who has actually been decent with oil issues. Maybe he needs to pull some of the cool people in and make them model the right behaviors.
Denis Hayes
Growing up as a product of the black civil-rights movement, I had a lot of different models for black weirdness, whether it’s Richard Pryor or James Baldwin or Jimmy Walker.
Colson Whitehead
A good model guides your thinking, a bad one warps it.
Brian Marick
Digitization and new technologies are rapidly changing all industries, forcing them to prepare for a tomorrow that is unpredictable. This also applies to the industry of container shipping, ports, and logistics, which largely has been driven by the traditional business models focused on optimizing how you move goods.
Soren Skou
A visit to the hood through a record, or through a video, or through a film, is a lot safer than actually visiting the people in real life. It became a business model. It became a revenue engine that, you know, you can get to the hood without ever going there.
Chuck D
All intervening steps, scribbles, sketches, drawings, failed work models, studies thoughts, conversations, are of interest. Those that show the thought process of the artist are sometimes more interesting than the final product
Sol LeWitt
And, since the model he faithfully copies is not going to be hung up next to the picture, since the picture is going to be there on its own, it is of no interest whether it is an accurate copy of the model.
Lucian Freud
If thou shouldst paint mountains in a good style and to look natural, take some large stones full of cracks and copy them.
Cennino Cennini
There was a point in time when I was in dire need of changing the way the model agency was working.
Carol Alt
We aren’t lazy, overweight models. We work out and must maintain proportionate bodies for work. Plus models are curvy and fit. Don’t let the scale fool you. Plus doesn’t always equal unhealthy, just like skinny doesn’t always equal healthy.
Liris Crosse
The two contemporary writers whom I consider as role models are Janet Malcolm and Michael Lewis.
Malcolm Gladwell
We have a lot of great lesbian role models in tennis. I mean, Martina Navratilova in her heyday was probably the greatest female athlete on the planet. Martina just kept breaking every rule. That’s a great role model.
David Furnish
There’s not a lot of positive role models of women in newspapers and magazines. I think it puts pressure on girls. They think that the image put out, it’s the way you have to look.
Katie Taylor
…the possibility of circular reasoning arises-that is, using the temperature record to derive a key input to climate models that are then tested against the temperature record.
Theodore Wilbur Anderson
Computer models of the climate….[are] a very dubious business if you don’t have good inputs.
Freeman Dyson
I swear I want to be a food model.
Amy Sedaris
I feel like I’m a very good role model for women.
Blu Cantrell
Being athletic and fit is very sexy in my opinion! I am not a fan of the heroin chick model look. I think girls should be able to watch a game and then go out and play it.
Katie Cleary
Find a model of great education in history and you will find a great teacher who inspired students to make the hard choice to study. Wherever you find such a teacher, you will also find self-motivated students who study hard. When students study hard, learning occurs.
Oliver DeMille
I will never tire of recommending the custom, practiced by the best architects, of preparing not only drawings and sketches, but also models of wood or any other material. These… enable us to examine… the work as a whole… and, before continuing any further, to estimate the likely trouble and expense.
Leon Battista Alberti
You have major labels that are willing to take unconventional approaches because the old model is crumbling in front of us.
There’s a lot of skaters that I look up to, and I think my biggest skating role models were the two Russian competitors at the 2002 Olympic games in Salt Lake City. They really motivated me to follow my passion in skating, and it really blossomed from there.
Nathan Chen
My lifetime role model and hero is Freddie Mercury of Queen.
Well, in brief, I was discovered by a lady called Beth Boldt. She had also been a model. She used to take pictures of the girls she found, and she took a picture of me one day in my school uniform, and it all kind of started from there.
Naomi Campbell
Well, I always hope that I’m a role model.
James Iha
I don’t understand the business models of Flipkart and Uber. See no logic in people saying business models like that of Flipkart will flourish but that of D-Mart will not.
Rakesh Jhunjhunwala
For the women’s team, our job is to be professional footballers for club and country and be the best role models we can be.
Steph Houghton
There are only five top models in the world: Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington and Claudia Schiffer.
Valeria Mazza
I like looking feminine and I enjoy being a role model. I enjoy being a woman. It all comes down to having the confidence to be who you are.
Cathy Freeman
The purpose of models is not to fit the data but to sharpen the question.
Samuel Karlin
The basic problem is with the business model of journalism. That business model is premised on the idea that talk is cheap and reporting is expensive.
Jonathan Alter
Satire is, indeed, the only sort of composition in which the Latin poets whose works have come down to us were not mere imitators of foreign models; and it is therefore the sort of composition in which they have never been excelled.
Thomas B. Macaulay
My role models were Kevin Phillips and David Beckham, and, for me, now girls can look up to female footballers and want to aspire to be them and try to follow in their footsteps and even be better than us.
Steph Houghton
Of course, in the art class, I was the model.
Suzanne Farrell
Do not internalize the industrial model. You are not one of the myriad interchangeable pieces, but a unique human being, and if you’ve got something to say, say it, and think well of yourself while you’re learning to say it better.
David Mamet
I remove a lot of the pressure from myself by saying I’m not competing with my parents. They are the persons who taught me my ideology. They actively practiced what they preached. They’re the exemplars and the role models. So how does one compete with a mentor?
Benigno Aquino III
Young girls look to me as a role model and think I crash diet to keep slim. That’s not true, I always eat properly.
Denise Van Outen
It’s very satisfying to promote science and education and see good results. Setting a good example for young people, being a role model, is very important for me.
Yuan T. Lee
I think people’s minds are going to have to assimilate in the sense that all the world is international now. The whole world has gone global. I think cities like San Francisco and Los Angeles are the models of our future.
Pico Iyer
I always had the old-school model that I’m going to work for as long as I’m relevant and focus on for-profit activities and someday when I retire I’m going to learn about philanthropy.
Marc Andreessen
I love Tina Turner. I’m one of Tina Turner’s biggest fans. Tina Turner was a big influence on me to become a singer. A role model and in a way she gave me back my confidence in choosing my material.
Bonnie Tyler
The job of a leader, the job of a governor, the job of a president is to get the people in the room and to bang enough heads together and rub enough arms and cajole enough to have them put the country’s and the state’s greater interests ahead of their own personal interests.
Chris Christie
The American people don’t believe politicians. They don’t believe business leaders or Hollywood celebrities or athletes or other supposed role models. And they certainly don’t believe the news media.
John Yarmuth
That is what great athletes can do: they give us a model of striving for human perfection.
Armstrong Williams
Social media is the democratization of information, transforming people from content readers into publishers. It is the shift from a broadcast mechanism, one-to-many, to a many-to-many model, rooted in conversations between authors, people and peers.
Brian Solis
There is a rumour that I can’t draw and never could. This is probably because I work so much with models. Models are one of the most beautiful design tools, but I still do the finest drawings you can imagine.
JГёrn Utzon
The world needs role models, instead of critics.
Denis Waitley
I am the very model of a modern major general
W. S. Gilbert
From offstage until the moment I walk onstage, I constantly tweak my talk show and ‘Top Model’, but at the same time, I often leave my private life by the wayside.
Tyra Banks
To model an object is to possess it.
Pablo Picasso
My mom is very confident and she was always a role model of mine.

Businesses need to proactively create models that make a difference in society and let everyone else use them, talk about them, emulate them – and build on them.
Muhtar Kent
I’m always going to the toy store; I even have a room full of plastic models.
Akira Toriyama
Contrastingly to the new model of distribution, we shot Hand of God using the traditional format of film. I myself use very few apps and tend not to engage in social media. I do use Instagram under my production company’s name, but that’s it.
Marc Forster
It was an important period for us, because even though we weren’t a “punk band”, and what became a model for a punk band, we were able to be dragged along by the spirit of that time.
Stephen Mallinder
There are a lot of aspiring singers who are not paid attention to because they don’t look like a fashion model.

The two greatest role models in my professional career were Walt Disney and Dr. Deming. Dr. Deming was the Father of Total Quality Management and the person who redefined quality for the entire world.
Bill Capodagli
I take being a role model seriously.
LaDainian Tomlinson
We in this House are role models. People all over the world watch us and study us. When we fall short, they lose hope. When we fail, they despair.
Newt Gingrich
Be a shining role model of the best qualities humane eating embodies: caring, compassion, and empathy.
Michael Greger
There have been, in recent years, many Asian American pioneers in the public eye who’ve defied the condescendingly complimentary ‘model minority’ stereotype: actors like Lucy Liu, artists like Maya Lin, moguls like Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh. They are known, often admired.
Eric Liu
I was aware that on my skill as a painter would depend the physical and moral possession of the model.
Paul Gauguin
Successful model? That’s a myth. The year I modeled was the most painful year of my life. Editors would always talk to you in the third person as though you were merely a piece of merchandise.
Jessica Lange
I think exactly the same qualities as men [women role model needs], exactly the same, which is kindness, courage and intelligence.
Mark Millar
If people decide thin is out, the fashion industry won’t have thin models anymore. Have you spent time with fashion people? They are ruthless. They want money. And the one thing they know is people want clothes to cover their bodies. Unfortunately, most people aren’t comfortable with their bodies.
Kelly Cutrone
Educationists should build the capacities of the spirit of inquiry, creativity, entrepreneurial and moral leadership among students and become their role model.

Throughout the world today there is a gowing awareness of the failings of the Western model of development and a corresponding desire to look for more human-scale, ecological ways of living.
Helena Norberg-Hodge
As for them pretty light-skinned models standin in the cold, ah yeah they with us.
I was always making things. I made model airplanes and did a number of hands-on activities. I liked creating in some form or another, not realizing what it was all about.
Paul Smith
Model. Two mobile eyes in a mobile head, itself on a mobile body.
Robert Bresson
The difference between the girls today and models of the past is that we are not only interested in fashion: we are going in so many different directions at once. We work harder — at night and on weekends. On the modeling profession
Claudia Schiffer
My father… very generous, very philanthropic, very charitable man. My siblings and I and my mother continue with always appreciating and always giving back. It’s something I hope that I’ve become a role model for my children.
Steve Tisch
I might be in an airport, late or angry with a ticket person, and I’m going to sort of check myself, because part of me is seen as Eric Camden. We all need as much help as we can get. It’s a role model to me as much as to anybody else.
Stephen Collins
I don’t really understand why I should be a role model but I know that children do look up to me, so it is my responsibility to motivate people and be inspiring. I hope that I can do that for kids.
Josh Peck
I had no luck when I started out as a model. I keep telling people that it’s the only career in the world that you can’t choose for yourself – you have to be chosen.
Ines de La Fressange
The only pressure comes form myself. I put pressure on myself at first just because I was intimidated. When I made Amy Poehler laugh, it was a big thing for me. She’s been one of my role models since high school, because she started UCB, which is what I wanted to do since high school.
Aubrey Plaza
It’s not an Israeli model, it’s a TSA, screwed-up model. It should actually be the person who’s looking at the ticket and talking to the individual. Instead, they’ve hired people to stand around and observe, which is a bastardization of what should be done.
John Mica
Every agency would mention my hips. I remember looking at the other models and thinking, ‘I do not look like these girls.’
Iskra Lawrence
All too often, a successful new business model becomes the business model for companies not creative enough to invent their own.

My father wasn’t the best role model to me.

Leigh Steinberg
Models today, she explained, don’t understand that to be successful you have to have a personality, intelligence, and issues that you support, and Gisele embodies these qualities.
Anna Wintour
When we describe a process, or make out an invoice, or photograph a tree, we create models; without them we would know nothing of reality and would be animals.
Gerhard Richter
I always wanted to be a model, never an actress. I would see children in ads and stuff and wanted to be like them.
Anushka Sharma
