It’s funny; it’s a real balancing act. In TV, everybody’s talking about authenticity. In order to make ‘Dirty Jobs’ authentic, I really can’t be overly informed. The minute I am, I become a host… It’s a very tricky business paying a tribute to work, because TV is very bad at it.

Brian McKnight

Reggie Miller
I generally encourage people to make good on debts when they have enough money to repay them.

Suze Orman

Lee Daniels
There are a few things that we can do. One of them is that we can increase the taxes that people are paying who are the extremely wealthy in our communities. So, 70 percent, 80 percent, we’ve had it as high as 90 percent.

Lewis Howes
If you are making money writing, you are doing great. If you can support yourself writing, you are a success.

Julie Klausner

Ed Rendell
But paying is part of the game of life: it is the joy of buying that we crave.

Justin Trudeau
At a time of economic recession, the need for Medicaid and other safety net services is even greater. And we don’t want to raise taxes on people who are having a tough time paying their bills.
James Douglas

Brian K. Vaughan
How you eat is as important as what you eat. If I eat mindlessly while watching television, I get all of the calories and none of the pleasure. Instead, if I eat mindfully, paying attention and savoring what I’m eating, smaller portions of food can be exquisitely satisfying.
Dean Ornish
We’ve been paying for 100 percent of preventive care. But if you’re not getting annual physicals, then you’re not going to gain a financial incentive, so effectively your insurance premium with us will go up.

Doug Stanhope
When you hear a politician say ‘fair share,’ you are talking about hypocritical political propaganda. You are not talking about an intelligent discussion of who is paying what and who isn’t paying taxes.
Steve Wynn
As costs mount, in lives and dollars, it is natural to second guess, but one lesson I hope we have learned is that the U.S. cannot go it alone in a policy that leaves American troops taking all the risk and American taxpayers paying all of the costs.

John Rampton
You learn the most by listening and so, to me, always just listening, always just paying attention and finding out what it is that people see in somebody like them. You find those things, and you try to figure out how to fit them into who you are, who you want to be, and how you want to lead.
Andrew Whitworth
Susan Collins’ vote to put Brett Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court may be paying off for her, but it’s put women’s control over their own health care decisions in extreme jeopardy.
Sara Gideon
Writing nonfiction of various kinds has been instructive and entertaining as well as paying the rent.
Katherine Dunn

Jennifer Granholm
The only truly individualistic health-care choice – where you receive care that is unpolluted by anyone else’s funds – is to forgo insurance altogether, paying out-of-pocket for health services as you need them.
Thomas Frank
I had seen a lot of bullying on social media. If this is happening to me, who only a few people are paying attention to, what happens to somebody who is on a bigger scale?
Whitney Wolfe Herd
It’s great to see my hard work paying off, even if it’s not finished.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
At least Bank of America got its name right. The ultimate Too Big to Fail bank really is America, a hypergluttonous ward of the state whose limitless fraud and criminal conspiracies we’ll all be paying for until the end of time.
Matt Taibbi
I don’t believe in paying for sex. Which is why I’ll never again pay for a woman’s dinner.
David Wain
If we don’t figure out a way to create equity, real equity, of opportunity and access, to good schools, housing, health care, and decent paying jobs, we’re not going to survive as a productive and healthy society.
Tim Wise
Deciding together to have a child and sharing in child-rearing do not immunize a marriage. Indeed, collaborative couples can face other problems. They often embark on such an intense style of parenting that they end up paying less attention to each other.
Stephanie Coontz
We never have business meals at El Bulli. If it’s about business, you’re probably not paying much attention to the food.
Ferran Adria
My first paying gig was a play called ‘The Voice of the Prairie’ at a theater that no longer exists in Chicago called Wisdom Bridge. I played a fast-talking radio huckster – a salesman of crystal sets in the 1920s – and I actually won an award. Look at that! And then promptly didn’t get hired for a year.
Denis O’Hare
Anyone who doesn’t think the welfare-industrial complex is trying to increase dependency isn’t paying attention.
Howie Carr
I regret not paying a bit more attention to Welsh lessons at school. My Welsh is pretty ropey, as back at my school, people didn’t take Welsh lessons seriously. My dad can speak it, so I wish he’d taught me some growing up.
Geraint Thomas
I’m not a huge spender. Sometimes when you pay a lot, you’re paying for the company’s advertising. It feels ridiculous to pay for a name.
Evelyne Brochu
When I was younger, I was relying on those young-girl genetics. I wasn’t watching what I was eating or looking at nutrition. Now I’m paying attention, and my body is leaner. I’m healthier. I’m eating better. I’m just in better shape.
Jessie James Decker
I have just enough people paying attention that I have the freedom to be in charge. And I have a great record company – Nonesuch understands what I’m about.
Emmylou Harris
No matter who is watching or paying the paycheck, we are ultimately each our own boss.
Kristin Armstrong
My public is growing up just as I am. After all, I’m not 19 anymore and if I stick with the sex bit, who will be paying to see me when I’m 50?
Marilyn Monroe
In terms of Cube I think he’s very conscious of the technical aspect of the business whereas when you’re just hired as an actor, you’re not really secure in that part of your work and you’re not really paying attention to where the camera.
Nia Long
Try paying the bills with love. The idea I am trying to espouse is that you can have both love and money, and be rich and generous.
T. Harv Eker
I guess I have friends around me but when you’re paying them can they ever really be true friends?
Kelly Osbourne
For me, I’ve always been Justin Trudeau, son of. All my life I’ve had to know I was carrying a name, and people were paying more attention to what I had to say, and I had to make a choice early on.
Justin Trudeau
Too often, we make budget cuts – then blow the savings. Instead, think about your financial picture. Do you have high-interest rate debt? Paying it off faster will save you a bundle.
Jean Chatzky
Since we can’t count on the meat, egg, and dairy industries to protect animals from the most egregious forms of cruelty, what can we, as consumers, do? Opting out of paying someone to allow animals to die in a barn fire or at the slaughterhouse seems pretty reasonable.
Ingrid Newkirk
Those who take their money abroad in an effort to avoid paying American taxes should lose their American citizenship.
Robert Reich
But Dr. Smith says, and I believe it to be a true state of the case, that he himself gave a course of Lectures in Natural Philosophy, during the same winter, and that the money raised by them was also applied towards paying for the Orrery.
David Rittenhouse
‘Psych’ was so many different things, and they evolved in so many different ways over the years, and towards the end there, we were barely solving mysteries anymore. We were just paying homage to our favorite movies, television shows, and bringing through as many ’80s icons as we possibly could.
James Roday
I have heard that the Saudi Arabians are paying Greenpeace to campaign against Nuclear Power. It wouldn’t surprise me at all.
James Lovelock
Oh yes, technique has definitely advanced. But you never advance without losing something en passant, and you lose it because you’re paying so much attention to the new thing.
Ninette de Valois
The United States established itself as a trustworthy new nation in its first two decades after the Revolutionary War by paying its debts, even when many in the country believed it had no obligation to do so. Alexander Hamilton, the founder of this newspaper, insisted on it.
John Podhoretz
People shouldn’t be forced to chose between paying for rent or paying for medication. They deserve a government ready to take on Big Pharma by implementing health coverage, starting by extending pharmacare coverage to every Canadian.
Jagmeet Singh
I’m starting to figure it out – figure out my spots, where I should be on the court, where I’m most effective, and how I handle double teams – and it’s paying off.
Joel Embiid
I do know what it’s like to worry about bills, I do know what it’s like to worry about even finding a child-minder, never mind paying them.
Frances O’Grady
My idea of success is not Oscars. Am I glad I have that little trinket? Yes, I am. But it depends on how you define success. The minute I got my first professional cheque from Joel Schumacher, I was successful. Somebody’s paying me to act!
Octavia Spencer
I assumed a business like a film studio would behave like a business and still want to protect its own interests, still do the best it could to get as many people paying for as many of their movies as possible. I realized this is not actually a business about business: it’s a business of egos and dominance.
Karyn Kusama
Thanks to health reform, women across the country with private insurance can get birth control without paying out of pocket. This lets women make the health care decisions that are right for them and puts every one of us in charge of our own reproductive health.
Ann McLane Kuster
I got to a point where I was completely typecast, and I knew I was paying my dues, and I was happy to do so because I knew that’s what had to happen, and I loved acting. But I would never go back.
Guillermo Diaz
I do not like toll roads. Taxpayers are already paying for those roads through their gas taxes, and then to turn around and tell them they need to pay more to drive on the roads, I don’t like it.
Sam Graves
My first paying job was a in a production of Neil LaBute’s ‘Bash: Latter Day Plays’ at the Union Street theater in Borough. I played the ‘Medea Redux’ character. That was my first job out of drama school. I can’t remember how much I got paid. I’m sure it was pennies.
Juliet Rylance
I think we’ve been dulled by capitalism. We’re just blobs now – we’re so worried about how we can keep paying the lease on the car, the mortgage, the lease on the toaster and all that. You can’t really think about much else. If you lose that, you lose the whole lot.
Rupert Everett
I have spent my life paying attention to my art form, developing my art form, worrying about my show and what I’m bringing to people, making sure that I give them a fine trade.
In Bollywood, we are told exactly what to do and how to do it and not to counter things by saying there’s a better way. We make our actors feel important by paying them more. But the real deal is when you let the actors take some decisions on the sets.
Ali Fazal
I’m outraged that we’re building roads, schools, and hospitals in Iraq and Afghanistan, and that we’re doing it with borrowed money from China that we’re paying interest on. I’m outraged.
Gary Johnson
Israel’s middle class is paying for those below it, and that’s fine, but also for those who are above it, and that’s very wrong.
Yair Lapid
Sometimes if you get ’em too drunk they don’t pay no attention to what you’re doin’ anyways, so you might as well just do old songs. But if you get one that’s paying attention, sometimes we’ll do some new material.
Merle Haggard
Obviously, a lot of non-profits live on donations, and that’s a wonderful thing. But higher education can’t exist on donations only because, if that were the case, we would have a hard time paying teachers adequate salaries.
Sebastian Thrun
Unlike Europe, China can’t be intimidated. Europe backs down if the United States looks at it the wrong way. But China, they’ve been there for 3,000 years and are paying no attention to the barbarians and don’t see any need to.
Noam Chomsky
WrestleMania is an experience. It’s an overall ride, its ups and its downs and its curves and its music. It’s presentation, and it’s emotion, and it’s paying tribute to the past and progressing the product into the future. It’s career-defining moments for people who live for career-defining moments.
Paul Heyman
I wouldn’t mind paying taxes – if I knew they were going to a friendly country.
Dick Gregory
Many people do think it’s naive to improvise in front of paying customers. I’m not saying one way is better than another.
Lee Konitz
Using cheap and efficient energy makes every other American industry more productive, and thus makes American employers far more competitive in global markets. Productivity creates higher paying jobs in America; it doesn’t destroy them.
Stephen Moore
Brand marketers don’t believe that ad-tech companies view brands as true partners. Ad-tech companies think brand marketers are paying attention to the wrong things. And publishers, with a few important exceptions, feel taken advantage of by everyone.
John Battelle
Google can say they are not in the content business, but if they are paying people and distributing and archiving their work, it is getting harder to make that case.
Jason Calacanis
The way I choose projects is based on what I think is most real and most interesting, not on what’s paying the most money or what’s most popular.
Evan Ross
When I turned 16, my dad made me sign a contract – he made us sign contracts for everything – that if I hit my car, I would be responsible for paying for it. I was in bumper-to-bumper traffic, and I tapped someone. It was so not a big deal, but I had to pay for it.
Kim Kardashian
It sounds so incredibly selfish, but you just can’t earn the same money doing theater as you can doing television and film. I know that’s awful, but you get a mortgage and a family, and suddenly, paying that seems quite important.
Jonny Lee Miller
If every other store in town is paying workers $9 an hour, one offering $8 will find it hard to hire anyone – perhaps not when unemployment is high, but certainly in normal times. Robust competition is a powerful force helping to ensure that workers are paid what they contribute to their employers’ bottom lines.
Christina Romer
There’s so many things I want to accomplish in the world of acting. But, the two most important are that I want to keep paying the bills and I want to get better. That’s about it. I enjoy what I do. I’ll stay busy. I’ve been lucky.
Stone Cold Steve Austin
You can become blind by seeing each day as a similar one. Each day is a different one, each day brings a miracle of its own. It’s just a matter of paying attention to this miracle.
Paulo Coelho
Common sense would tell you that the idea that Saudi Arabia was paying for bin Laden’s expenses while he was living in Abbottabad is simply risible. Bin Laden’s principal goal was the overthrow of the Saudi royal family as a result of which his Saudi citizenship was revoked as far back as 1994.
Peter Bergen
Writing isn’t manual labor. Nor is it emptying the dishwasher or paying bills. It’s work, sure, but sometimes it should be fun.
Rebecca Serle
You do something when you’re 20, and you’re still paying for it when you’re 40.
Damon Dash
I have learned to make a lot of effort and sacrifice for this sport, and now I can say it’s paying me back. So it is important to always show determination and effort on the pitch.
Stephan El Shaarawy
Let me tell you something: I have members in my charter who, after paying their rent and house bills and taking care of their families, don’t even have enough money left over to pay the fifteen dollars a week dues.
Chuck Zito
There aren’t many downsides to being rich, other than paying taxes and having relatives asking for money. But being famous, that’s a 24 hour job right there.
Bill Murray
I think we are paying a lot of attention to China one way or the other. They are a big factor in the world. They are successful; they are growing. They want to grow their influence, and all the countries in Asia want to be their friend and want to benefit from China’s development and success.
Lee Hsien Loong
You can’t operate a business running at a loss, and particularly if you’re doing it by paying yourselves. It just doesn’t fly.
James P. Gorman
I wasn’t the best student. I wasn’t stupid, but I wasn’t paying a lot of attention.
Denis Leary
I’ve never made any picture, good or bad, without paying for it in emotional turmoil.
W. Eugene Smith
I was a pretty disruptive student in class in school. I had a hard time paying attention. I had what they call A.D.D. now, back then I was just a hyper kid.
John Corbett
I have ideas. I hear voices. Words accumulate. It’s still an overriding impulse. And I’m self-employed, which means I have to be sensible and motivated about paying the bills.
Sarah Hall
I think the bring-your-own-device is the best thing that ever happened to CIOs. Now employees are paying for their own devices.
Aneel Bhusri
I’ve always been a fan of martial arts, even before I did jiu-jitsu tournaments. I did point karate tournaments and wrestled in high school. To me, it was just an evolution and mixed martial arts was the next step. I just wanted to compete and train in it. I had no illusions of it being a paying gig.
Frank Mir
It’s so hard to express yourself, because swimmers are pretty much paying attention to a black line for hours out of a day.
Ryan Lochte
I’m pretty much done with mindfulness. I’m just going to start paying attention.
Gina Barreca
National parks are the best expression of social equity that there is. It’s like paying our rent for living on the planet.
Douglas Tompkins
And I have to tell you as a grandmother, I worry about the fact that my grandchildren are going to be paying for all the spending, including military spending, that has gone on and the tax cuts that have come through.
Geraldine Ferraro
The oil patch pays good. They’re decent jobs paying between 50 and 70 thousand a year. Fracking has a big impact on the oil consumption in the United States.
Harold Hamm
And that does concern me, because we’re not getting enough back for our taxes that we’re paying. I think we really have to look at the whole sort of area.
Rex Hunt
Minibars are very appealing, especially when someone else is paying.
Holly Hunter
Very few entrepreneurs start their business on the back of market research. Instead, they have tremendous zeitgeist, honed by paying attention to where they are.
Margaret Heffernan
People are paying to see me. You’ve got to give something back.
Anthony Joshua
I went from a playing in a bar on a bar stool for free beer and tip money, where people weren’t paying attention to me, to now I’ve got their attention. It’s up to me to what I feed them with my music. It’s up to me how I do that. I’ve put a lot of thought into how great the songs are, and how I want people to perceive me.
Jake Owen
What’s awesome about the Internet is how it breaks up monopolistic markets where middlemen unfairly gobble up outsized fees, leaving us little choice but to keep paying them.
Sarah Lacy
If you buy a sweater for €1,000 and you know that the funds you are paying are also going to help to build a hospital and a school, wouldn’t you think better about it?
Brunello Cucinelli
The problem with the economy isn’t that people aren’t paying their fair share of taxes.
Jon Lovitz
My mother’s sister married a man from Barbados, and my cousins were raised in Barbados. So we traveled down there, they came up every summer for camp, and I started paying attention to their music. And that was the first place I ever remember hearing reggae and liking it.
When a horse offers their face to you, they’re interested in what you are, what you’re doing. They’re paying attention.
Brady Jandreau
If we didn’t have a sustainable agriculture industry, who would be paying the then-missing taxes to support our defence, police, roads, airports, elderly, parks, public sporting facilities and much more?
Gina Rinehart
And my response is 70,000 people in the state of Maine that paid income tax in 2011 will not be paying income tax in 2012.
Paul LePage
We need to transform our system so people know what they are paying for health care, so they know whether they are getting good quality health care, and so they have a reason and ability to care.
Alex Azar
We all need to figure out what’s right for us because nothing about life is one size fits all. Even for an Olympian, that’s for sure. And such discovery starts with you paying attention – to yourself.
David Agus
The idea that growth will remedy our debts is so addictive for politicians, but the citizens end up paying the price.
Michael Burry
I remember someone once asked Jack Kennedy why he was paying such close attention to the renovation of the square across from the White House, and he said, ‘It may be the only thing my presidency is remembered for.’
Gloria Steinem
When I wake up in the morning, I feel like a billionaire without paying taxes.
Ernie Banks
A lot of what acting is paying attention.
Nancy Reagan
Generally I find that kids ask better questions than you get with adults. Something that kids will do a lot is, they’re so nervous, and they’re not really paying attention, so they’ll ask the same question someone just asked. And you’re trying to be nice and not embarrass them any more than they are already.
James Patterson
I think the challenge is going out in front of a paying audience with absolutely nothing and trying to entertain them for two hours. Thankfully, I only think about that right before we go on, and then once we’re out there, everything’s fine.
Colin Mochrie
While there have been news reports of recent college graduates living with their parents because they have been unable to find a job paying a salary sufficient to move out, their near and long-term career prospects remain far brighter than for those without a college degree.
Elaine Chao
Online advertising may not be much more successful than an old double-barrel, but – like a good spray of buckshot – it makes up for its lack of accuracy with sheer volume. There are 10 unique ads listed with every Gmail message in your queue, each tied to the message content. And a paying sponsor.
Douglas Rushkoff
Improving SME productivity translates into more and better paying jobs, distributed across less fortunate sections of the economy.
Arancha Gonzalez
Sometime, while I wasn’t paying attention, trickle-down economics got respectable.
Timothy Noah
Nobody has been arrested on Wall Street for the crash of 2008. They’re not paying their fair share of the taxes. And now with the Citizens United case of the Supreme Court, they get to buy politicians up out in the open.
Michael Moore
On banks, I make no apology for attacking spivs and gamblers who did more harm to the British economy than Bob Crow could achieve in his wildest Trotskyite fantasies, while paying themselves outrageous bonuses underwritten by the taxpayer. There is much public anger about banks and it is well deserved.
Vince Cable
There isn’t any formula or method. You learn to love by loving – by paying attention and doing what one thereby discovers has to be done.
Aldous Huxley
I like giving the audience a lot of stuff to look at, and rewards for repeated viewings and paying attention.
Rich Moore
The easiest way to figure out who the customer is in an online space is to figure out who is paying for the thing. Usually, the people paying are the customers. So on Facebook, the people paying are marketers. That makes them the customers. And it means we are the product being delivered to those customers.
Douglas Rushkoff
In 1986, I was asked by the then-Dean of Science at the University of British Columbia, Dr. R.C. Miller, Jr., to establish a new interdisciplinary institute, the Biotechnology Laboratory. I decided that it was time for me to start paying back for the thirty years of fun that I had been able to have in research.
Michael Smith
The minute you got the Nobel Peace Prize, things that I said yesterday, with nobody paying too much attention, I say the same things after I got it – oh! It was quite crucial for people, and it helped our morale because apartheid did look invincible.
Desmond Tutu
One way of paying tribute to my parents was ‘bearing witness’ as the Quakers do – writing down everything that was happening instead of turning my back on it and pretending that it was all great.
Roz Chast
I tried paying at a restaurant with stock options. It didn’t work.
Parker Conrad
Rightly or wrongly, as a woman in politics, you’re being judged for what you’re wearing, and people are paying attention to that more than they do with men.
Betsy Hodges
Listening is active. At its most basic level, it’s about focus, paying attention.
Simon Sinek
If you are lucky enough to be successful, you get drawn further in and you stop paying attention to the stuff that matters.
David Macaulay
Nirvana, to a value investor, is paying a cheap price for a company that is growing in value every year at a nice rate – this largely explains why today we own stocks like Berkshire Hathaway, McDonald’s, Wal-Mart, Microsoft, Costco and Anheuser-Busch.
Whitney Tilson
Our message of ensuring every Hoosier has access to a quality education that turns into a good paying job, that ultimately leads to a meaningful career with access to affordable health care, is resonating.
Todd Young
If I screw up then everyone’s paying attention and I’ll hear about it.
Katie Hill
I was not paying attention during physics in high school; I was wondering if I was going to be cast in ‘Pippin.’
John Benjamin Hickey
There’s almost no way of doing importing honestly, because if you do you’re at such a disadvantage competitively. So people spend huge amounts of effort getting around stupid laws and not paying taxes.
Esther Dyson
The Internet’s impact is immense. My students can’t imagine ever paying for a book.
Edmund White
Look, I want to be able to make the stupidest movies ever, because they make people laugh and they make money. But that’s not all I want to do. And I think I’ve proven to some people – the ones paying attention – that I can do more. Everybody else, well, they can wait and see and make up their mind.
Marlon Wayans
When I first starting writing, and no one was paying me, in order to feel like I had a real job, I would get out of bed, put on a jacket and tie every morning, and sit down at my desk.
Graham Moore
Everybody feels better about himself, his community, and his country if employers are paying workers well. Economics, though, teaches that if every employer is pressured to raise wages, some labor will be priced out of the market.
Edmund Phelps
I’ve worked really hard to get to where I am. Slow and steady wins the race, and I believe in paying your dues.
Amanda Bynes
People are paying a premium to see movies in 3-D, and that’s a very big deal. It’s never been done before that someone says you have to pay more to see ‘Spider-Man’ than a romantic comedy.
Michael Lynton
One of the advantages of this found footage format is that you can have deliberately badly composed frames. Here we can put a camera in the weirdest angle and it kind of throws you off. You never know what you are supposed to be paying attention to. It’s deliberate chaos.
Oren Peli
Paying good wages is not in opposition to good productivity.
James Sinegal
The great thing about having money is that you can actually just get on with your life and not have to think about paying the bills or crouch over ‘The Wall Street Journal’ or the ‘Financial Times’ and look at the stock figures and things like that. That bores me rigid.
Peter Mayle
If you don’t have a job right now, and you have a computer and a basic intelligence level, I guarantee you can get a great job, paying really well, in less than three months. How? Learn to program.
Tucker Max
When someone has to go to the hospital because they don’t have insurance – and by the way, I think the insurance companies should be out of the mix altogether – but when someone needs health care, and they don’t have the ability to pay for it, in our communities, we end up paying for it one way or the other.
Mark Cuban
It’s like a dream come true. When somebody is paying you to talk about yourself, you’ve won.
Kevin Smith
Much in the way Olympic athletes optimize their game by paying an enormous – borderline maniacal – amount of attention to things like diet, exercise, sleep, and of course the essential R&R, we all would do well to pay more attention to those key aspects of our lives that comprise our overall health equation.
David Agus
Sick leave should be used to cover the costs of paying people who work in the public service who are sick, and that we can deliver that to our public servants while making it affordable for Canadian taxpayers.
Pierre Poilievre
I was raised in a group home for 14 years, so I was a beneficiary of philanthropy. I didn’t have a family. The nameless, faceless strangers were my family. They gave me an education, put food on the table and clothes on my back. I am who I am because of that formative experience. Now I am paying it forward.
Darell Hammond
Pay your utilities, gas and other basic needs before paying on your debts.
Dave Ramsey
It puts the provider in a situation of looking for ways to have someone else pick up a piece of the cost. As a result, every customer who has insurance ends up paying a ‘hidden premium.’ It simply adds to the health care cost burden.
Dave Obey
You go to drama school, and the people you revere and admire are those who work on the London stage, and you hope that’s a world that you’ll be able to break into and do enough occasional television and small film work to eventually get to the point where you’re paying the bills.
Taron Egerton
I believe in the need for paying for art. Free shows must not be encouraged.
Y. G. Mahendran
In market research I did at Microsoft Corp. in the early 1990s, I estimated that the ‘Wall Street Journal’ took in about 75 cents per copy from subscribers, $1.25 at the newsstand and a whopping $5 per copy from ads. The ad revenue let them run a far bigger newsroom than subscribers were paying for.
Nathan Myhrvold
Barack Obama’s large contributor was Goldman Sachs – same thing on the Republican side. If you go to both their conventions, you see the same lobbyists paying off both sides so they win either way.
Jesse Ventura
A lesser but still fundamental rule of racing is that you properly enter the event. Anyone who doesn’t but still insists on running interferes with the paying customers.
Joe Henderson
Blockchain is moving beyond cryptocurrency, and it’s worth paying attention – especially since successful prototypes show that blockchain, also known as distributed ledger technology, will be transformative.
Julie Sweet
There are so many things that pop up. If you are paying attention, you can learn every second of the day. Life is my guru.
Jeff Bridges
Global warming creates volatility. I feel it when I’m flying. The storms are more volatile. We are paying the price in more hurricanes and tornadoes.
Debbie Stabenow
The Patients’ Bill of Rights is necessary to guarantee that health care will be available for those who are paying for insurance. It’s a part of the overall health care picture.
Debbie Stabenow
In one week, I went from being a girl who owed a guy thousands of dollars – my manager Anthony was paying for my outfits, paying for my food; I was sleeping in his parents’ basement – to taking meetings with every major label in America. The next morning, I had a record deal and wrote him a cheque to pay back all that money.
When I sit and talk with a person, I’m not always paying attention. I’m looking at the person and saying, ‘What is it about his or her life that appeals to me?’
Patricia Reilly Giff
On everything I do I’m always taking someone’s money, whether it’s a movie studio or a record label. Somebody’s paying for it, and I’m always respectful of that. But I’m never going to compromise.
Spike Jonze
If anyone would have been paying serious attention to my puppet shows, I would have been sent to therapy very young.
Bob Balaban
If we’re willing to accept unlimited immigration in order to keep wages low and corporate profits high, we should just say so and stop paying for all the immigration enforcement window dressing.
Jan C. Ting
We must invest in affordable housing, quality education, safe parks and green space, good paying jobs, comprehensive mental health and trauma services, and other supports that will help all of our people.
Cori Bush
Many of the things that we take for granted around the table, like cashing a check or just paying a bill or sending money to somebody you love, is very time consuming.
Dan Schulman
The first part of my career, how I was paying the bills was commercials. I was just doing tons of commercials.
Aaron Paul
Auctomatic was a compressed start-up experience, going from start to launch to acquisition in under a year. We spent a long time building the product before getting our first customer, whereas with Stripe we made sure we had paying customers from the very start.
John Collison
We come from a very humble background. A lot of my paycheck from ‘Skins’ went to paying the bills and getting us a new sofa.
Kaya Scodelario
It’s a combination of targeting higher paying jobs in these growth areas and fostering closer cooperation with higher education; a rising tide that lifts all boats.
John Hoeven
‘The Simpsons’ basically – and ‘Futurama’ – are really smart shows. They’re kind of disguised as these goofy animated sitcoms, but the references within the shows, if you’re paying attention, are pretty smart and pretty sophisticated.
Matt Groening
If I’m paying money to come to see you, you shouldn’t look like everybody else in the crowd.
Randy Jackson
When you’re so close to material, it would be as if you had come out of a bad marriage. You would be so close to it that you would be paying attention to detail that may not mean a whole lot for the reader.
Tim O’Brien
Sincere regret may be a faculty for paying attention to the future, for sensing a new tide where we missed a previous one, for experiencing timelessness with a grandchild where we neglected a boy of our own.
David Whyte
I remember my mom sitting at our kitchen table, paying bills with a small smile. She’d sigh and say, ‘I’m so blessed to be able to pay these.’ She knew it was about what you have.
Faith Salie
If you have this idea that the earth is only 6,000 years old, you are denying, if you will, everything that you can touch and see. You’re not paying attention to what’s happening in the universe around you.
Bill Nye
More people working and paying taxes reduces government expenditures and helps us move a little closer to balance.
Dick Durbin
When people say that college isn’t worthwhile and paying all this money isn’t worthwhile, I really disagree. I think those experiences and those classes that may not necessarily seem applicable in the moment end up coming back to you time and time again.
Kevin Systrom
To see that hard work paying off is very good.
Angelique Kerber
For the vast majority of Americans who work hard and play by the rules, paying the bills may be hard some months, but it’s something we always do.
Ami Bera
I’m a hard-nosed businessman, that if a company is paying its way, increasing profits for thirty-odd consecutive years, you don’t put it into receivership.
Sean Quinn
When in some communities selling drugs is so lucrative that that’s a pretty big enticement that we have to break down. Part of that is by making opportunities and paying decent wages.
Matt Gonzalez
You’ve seen my statements; I do very well. I don’t mind paying some taxes. The middle class is getting clobbered in this country. You know the middle class built this country, not the hedge fund guys, but I know people in hedge funds that pay almost nothing, and it’s ridiculous, OK?
Donald Trump
Health insurance costs in the United States are on an unsustainable path. I’ve heard from hundreds of Montanans who are paying thousands of dollars every year for their health insurance coverage and thousands more for deductibles before their insurance provides any benefit.
Matt Rosendale
Without the ability to plant roots and invest in your community or your school – because you’re paying 60, 70, 80 percent of your income to rent – and eviction becomes something of an inevitability to you, it denies you certain freedoms.
Matthew Desmond
Like the vast majority of my constituents, I continue to be concerned about record profits reported by petroleum companies at a time when consumers are paying record high prices for gasoline.
Mike Rogers
One person goes off and works in Houston the other person goes off to London and you’re on the phone to each other and somebody is paying you to kiss somebody else. It’s very bizarre being an actor.
Ted Danson
Doctors and hospitals should be paid for keeping their patients well. Paying them for doing more tests and surgeries creates bad incentives.
Richard Thaler
Offensive linemen don’t get looked at. Nobody is paying attention to the offensive line. But me? I’m getting watched for everything. I know what type of player I am. Everybody else that I know knows what type of player I am.
Michael Oher
The turning point for me was when the Supreme Court installed Bush in 2000, even though he got half a million votes less nationally than Gore. It was nothing more than a bloodless coup and that’s when I really started paying attention.
Mark Edwards
Online piracy needs to be dealt with itself, because people are just wholesale stealing people’s work and not paying for it. It’s very hard to figure out a way to fix it.
Tim Heidecker
Who’s paying the million bucks? The insurance company. We’ve been trying for years to get the insurance industry to say to the gun industry, We won’t insure you unless you have policies that will reduce the likelihood of guns falling into the wrong hands easily.
Michael D. Barnes
It’s pretty cool that people will pay for something even though they don’t have to. It’s totally different now to back in the day. Now you’re paying for a record because you believe in the band. In the future that will be the only time people will pay for albums, because there’s some kind of connection.
Ezra Koenig
When you’re 22, 23, living in New York, you’re just scrambling to live on people’s couches and in rooms that you’re sure you’re not supposed to be in. You’re not on the lease; you’re paying weird amounts of money every month trying to make it happen.
Stephanie Beatriz
When you put an album out, you can’t do any material from the album if people are paying to see you.
Patton Oswalt
Income taxes are very poor at generating income from automation because the gains are realized by technology companies that are experts at not paying taxes.
Andrew Yang
The middle and working classes are paying the debt that the financial markets created.
Javier Bardem
I’ve heard this before from people: early 20s kind of screws with your head a little bit because you’re transitioning into adulthood and actually becoming an adult with responsibilities and paying bills. So all of a sudden, it’s like you’re responsible now.
Dan Byrd
I know people like myself where we’ve got resorts, or we’re in the hospitality business, and we just can’t make money because you’re paying someone minimum $42 per hour or something on a Sunday.
Gerry Harvey
I don’t really like the word ‘religion.’ To me, that’s like rules and regulations and paying money to send up prayers. That kind of all weirds me out, honestly.
Matt Lanter
I just felt like I couldn’t deal with the everyday responsibilities of life, paying bills and all of that. I’m terrible at all of that. So I knew I had to make enough money to pay someone else to deal with all of that.
Lily Allen
I try my best to stay healthy by paying attention to the ingredients in foods and trying to make sure my food is organic and not full of sugar or preservatives. I also try to do at least 30 minutes of cardio every day in the gym.
Philomena Kwao
They thought I was a success as soon as I started paying the bills.
Mahalia Jackson
Choosing to work where there is a union and getting the related benefits of higher wages and collective bargaining, but not paying a fair share of the costs of representation, would be freeloading, right?
Cynthia Dill
My dad was rubbish at all other aspects of his financial life, but he’s pretty good at paying the rent.
Robert Carlyle
As a Catholic, I find mindfulness helps me participate in my religion more wholeheartedly. If you are praying the rosary, participating in the rituals at Mass, or listening to the priest preach, you will actually be paying attention! Whatever your religion is, it can enhance the experience of participating in that religion.
Tim Ryan
I tramped. When I was on the freight trains, I wasn’t looking for work. I was looking to go from place to place without paying any money.
Utah Phillips
I’m a strong believer that you can build great companies in time of both greed and fear. But you have to be paying attention and operating under the right assumptions. You don’t have to believe history repeats itself, but you should accept that history rhymes.
Brad Feld
I’ve been a supporter of green initiatives for years. I’ve been paying more and more attention to it, you know, with three kids. I thought it was tragic when the Kyoto Protocol was killed by the U.S. It was sort of a call to action.
Barry Sternlicht
There were days when I was on the last $10 in my account, and I was freaking out about paying rent or buying groceries. Then you book a commercial, and you’re good for another three months.
Colin Egglesfield
It’s been a very strange trajectory because I struggled for so many years. I mean, I was doing these videos, I was doing these live shows, I had a lot of fans in New York, the press would write about me, but I couldn’t get a paying job, and so my father and I were really like a team.
Billy Eichner
Paying your employees well is not only the right thing to do but it makes for good business.
James Sinegal
Our pro-jobs, pro-growth economic agenda is paying off for New Hampshire families, allowing them the freedom to spend their money as they see fit.
Chris Sununu
While the federal government is committed to paying 100% of the cost of new people in Medicaid, I cannot, in good conscience, deny the uninsured access to care.
Rick Scott
On stage, you’ve got dialogue you’ve learned. You’ve got a paying audience. It couldn’t be better, you know?
Guy Pearce
What’s interesting to me is the fact that creatively, I can do anything now and people will pay attention, and if I suck, hopefully they will stop paying attention very quickly, but if I’m good, then I have my foot in the door, and people have paid attention, and I did a good job, and people are like, ‘Oh, wow!’
Ansel Elgort
It is all about being open and paying attention to the music in your head. I think most people have original music playing in their heads from time to time.
Tommy Shaw
Probably my first couple years in the league, I started paying more attention to what I was wearing. Once I got a few bucks in my pocket and I could afford some nice things, and you get to go, ‘OK, let’s try some of these things.’ And once you try something you like, you probably don’t change it much.
Tom Brady
I don’t like paying 50 per cent of tax.
Alan Sugar
When I was 18 years old and playing the drums, I never thought that I would have a website and that people will be buying my autographed picture and paying money for it.
Frank Vincent
Fundamentally, I’ve always been a fan of actually looking at our whole state tax system and really figuring out how we reform our tax system so that everyone’s paying their fair share but we don’t have a lot of nickel and diming with 100 taxes that end up hitting people that maybe can’t bear it the most.
Pramila Jayapal
Shell and Exxon support export, but refiners like Valero could end up paying more for the crude oil.
Gene Green
We say that children are bad at paying attention, but we really mean that they’re bad at not paying attention – they easily get distracted by anything interesting.
Alison Gopnik
It’s very difficult to consistently hit good iron shots if you get off to a bad start. That’s why I’m always paying attention to my setup and takeaway.
Keegan Bradley
We have sent our troops to war without paying for it. Now, we are bringing them home without saying how we are paying for it.
Patty Murray
Man was nature’s mistake she neglected to finish him and she has never ceased paying for her mistake.
Eric Hoffer
I am obligated and I will pay hundreds of millions of dollars in taxes to the American government. I already paid and I will keep paying whatever taxes I owe based on my time as a U.S. citizen.
Eduardo Saverin
Bipolar disorder is so swept under the rug as a nation and, I think especially, by black people. It’s not our culture to go get therapy. ‘Give them medicine for what?’ We put people in court, put them in court again, versus really paying attention to what it is they are going through.
Trai Byers
So my thing is we want come in and diffuse anything that’s not real, anything that doesn’t associate with real hip-hop. We want to be the one that says, ‘Yo, we want to help build and build a bigger and better industry.’ I’m just like, ‘Yo, with talent from Toronto, Vancouver, Quebec. Who’s paying attention?’
A criminal pipeline from Cuba to Florida threatens U.S. national security interests with Cuban migrants exploiting U.S. law, stealing from the American taxpayer, and paying the Cuban government to live large off the cash in Cuba.
Jeff Duncan
And historically the owners have used loyalty to a team or a city to hold players as opposed to always paying their worth.
Lynn Swann
I work for ABC. If the thing that ABC is paying me for is storytelling – not to make sure that a costume is exactly right or all those other things – then it is up to me to find the most creative space possible so that that function of my job can happen.
Shonda Rhimes
We have to have a national conversation about how police forces should interact with the African-American community, who happens to be paying their salary, who want to be served and protected, who these officers are take an oath to do so.
William Lacy Clay, Jr.
We should not allow wealthy people, including corporate criminals, to hide their assets and avoid paying their bills.
Jim Talent
First paying gig, I got 20 bucks. I played at some really weird venue. I don’t remember the venue; I just remember it was the last stop on the A train. It was, like, the Far Rockaways, Queens, and it was an audience of, like, three people.
Eric Andre
Women are more fashion conscious and are paying a lot of attention to what’s happening globally.
Priya Sachdev
My first paying job was guest starring in ‘Touched By An Angel’ when I was 12. It was very exciting. I couldn’t believe you got free food all day and people were so nice to you.
Mary Elizabeth Winstead
Because we had no money when I was growing up, when I started dancing, I wasn’t allowed to be frivolous – my mum made me go to every lesson because she was paying for it.
Anton du Beke
You do anything long enough, and somebody will end up paying attention to it.
King Tuff
For music, unlike a $500 software program, people are paying a buck or two a song, and it’s those dollars and pennies that have to add up to pay for not just the cost of that song, but the investment in the next song.
Hilary Rosen
I look around my neighborhood, and I see people hailing a cab or ordering their food and then paying for it all with their phone. I’ve read about that stuff for a really long time, and now it’s starting to become commonplace.
Ben Silbermann
It seems like the richer you are, the more chance you have of paying less tax.
John McEnroe
I really haven’t liked the commercialization of mountaineering, particularly of Mt. Everest. By paying $65,000, you can be conducted to the summit by a couple of good guides.
Edmund Hillary
I am very abnormal… But it wasn’t very long ago that I wasn’t so abnormal. I was very normal and headed for a lifetime of paying medical bills as proof of my normalcy.
Dirk Benedict
We have to look and ensure that we’re paying attention to what we’re doing, so that we don’t reflexively institute processes and procedures that exclude people without thought.
Sonia Sotomayor
Americans are already paying the price for record heat waves, dirty air, and an unstable climate. We need to fight these threats with every weapon we have, and the electricity industry has to do its fair share.
Frances Beinecke
It’s not Apple’s fault that they’re seeking to avoid paying taxes. They’re not lying, cheating or stealing. They’re following the rules that were created by governments. If the government doesn’t like the rules, they can change them.
John Mackey
Many blue-collar families struggling to pay rent would be happy to skip paying optional union dues.
Kevin O’Leary
The capacity for delight is the gift of paying attention.
Julia Margaret Cameron
Tattooed across NASCAR drivers’ jumpsuits and over every square inch of their cars are the logos of the companies sponsoring the teams, underwriting the costs, paying their salaries. Everyone can see who the drivers represent and who is footing the bill.
Steve Bullock
‘Lucha Underground’ is the evolution of wrestling. It’s high-style, high-flying, fast-paced hybrid style wrestling, and we’re actually paying homage to lucha libre for the first time.
Rey Mysterio
Most of our children have access to Internet-accessible technology, yet most of us are actually not paying much attention to what they’re doing online.
Lisa Madigan
I think till I reached my mid-30s, I just rebelled and rebelled. But eventually, the one thing I did pick up from mom was paying attention to my hair. We all put eggs, oil, dahi, even beer in our hair.
Twinkle Khanna
When people are frightened about going hungry and paying their mortgages, a scarcity model begins to prevail; they fear someone else will get their piece of the pie.
Barbara Kingsolver
After a while, you just want transportation, and things like cool cars or motorcycles are all about getting attention. I get all the attention I could ever need, so I kind of like being in a minivan and people not paying so much attention to me.
George Clooney
When I was about 12, I had my first paying gig – 8 dollars to play rhythm guitar in a polka band. Pretty soon, I ended up playing in all the bars within driving distance of Abbott, Texas.
Willie Nelson
Marriage is like paying an endless visit in your worst clothes.
J. B. Priestley
I would say that nanotech’s worth paying attention to no matter what your background because if you look far enough into the future, it’ll impact just about any industry you can think of.
Steve Jurvetson
The genius of our ruling class is that it has kept a majority of the people from ever questioning the inequity of a system where most people drudge along, paying heavy taxes for which they get nothing in return.
Gore Vidal
Making North Carolina a Top 10 Educated state is the backbone for a strong economy, attracting good paying jobs, helping incomes rise and keeping our communities vibrant.
Roy Cooper
No sane person enjoys paying tax… money, after all, is a very nice thing to have. But it’s the price we all pay for so many vital things in this country – and those of us lucky enough to have a bit more should be proud to be paying a little bit more as well.
Robert Rinder
As more and more people reach the Internet by mobile phone, we should make sure users are getting the open access they believe they’re paying for.
Chellie Pingree
I got an agent. He said, what do you wanna do, and I said, I want an Oscar nomination. That’s your job, that’s what I’m paying you for. And I got it.
William H. Macy
Anytime you get an audience that’s paying attention, you enjoy it more.
Natasha Hamilton
I was married to someone who had more money than me, but because I was the stronger earner and we lived in California – a shocking thing slapped me in the face when we divorced and I had to end up paying him my earnings.
Jeannie Mai
When we were making ‘Arrested Development,’ it was the hardest thing I’d ever done. You know, nobody was watching. We weren’t getting feedback. The job wasn’t paying very well. But the one thing I did feel confident about was: No one will ever be able to do this again. Because no one would be stupid enough to try.
Mitchell Hurwitz
I learned a lot in my life by paying attention and listening to how people around me worked.
Kris Jenner
I’ve certainly done some turkeys along the way and made some dumb choices in my career, mostly early on. I’m one of the lucky ones who got to make a lot of mistakes very early when no one was paying attention.
George Clooney
Classic cable TV may have hit its peak, but it’s still a huge force, and the streaming apps of many cable networks still require you to authenticate that you’re a paying cable customer every time you want to use a new such TV app.
Walt Mossberg
We have seen from experience that, if we are in the habit of walking regularly on the same road, we are able to think about other things while walking, without paying attention to our steps.
Vinoba Bhave
My parents were immigrants who started a nursery as a way to get us kids through school. I learned around the dinner table about customer service and cash flow and paying bills.
Jack Dangermond
The American people are happy to help small businesses grow, but paying fines for multi-millionaires, subsidizing bad behavior, should not be the responsibility of American taxpayers.
Tony Cardenas
My son was killed in 2004. I am not paying my taxes for 2004. You killed my son, George Bush, and I don’t owe you a penny.
Cindy Sheehan
It’s true that I don’t rearrange that much in the fiction, but I feel if you change even one name or the order of one event then you have to call it fiction or you get all the credits of non-fiction without paying the price.
Nicholson Baker
We can’t be paying pensions to the next generation of federal workers when hardly anyone in the private sector gets them.
Tim Griffin
A teacher’s not going to bother being tough on you for no reason; it’s when they’re not paying you attention that you should worry.
Darcey Bussell
Investors are impatient and they are also desperate for the ‘next big thing,’ and they are not paying attention to the fact that the ‘next big thing’ can be an economic crisis that they have created by being very irresponsible with their power.
Carmen Busquets
When my parents were paying for my sport, it wasn’t just me out on the ice. Pretty much every dollar my mom made teaching went into my skating.
Ashley Wagner
I have pessimistic moments when I think I should go on a diet because people are paying money to see movies with exceptional-looking actresses. But being in college has helped me realize that the best thing I can do is to feel good about myself and forget about other people’s standards.
Julia Stiles
If you want to get into the creative world, you have to just keep flogging away even when nobody’s paying attention. Because then when somebody finally does pay attention, it’s certainly a lot more interesting when you have a ton of stuff to show.
Ze Frank
I was making $150 a week in workshop. It was a rough year. I had trouble paying the rent. But I had evenings free to spend with my wife, Olive, and our baby daughter. In terms of family-building, it was one of the most blessed years of my life.
Ben Harney
When school children start paying union dues, that ‘s when I’ll start representing the interests of school children.
Albert Shanker
Economic security can feel like an impossible goal when you’re living paycheck to paycheck, deciding between paying the light bill or the water bill, knowing the decision to pay either one may mean you can’t put food on the table.
Stacey Abrams
There is a great discovery still to be made in literature, that of paying literary men by the quantity they do not write.
Thomas Carlyle
Polling is merely an instrument for gauging public opinion. When a president or any other leader pays attention to poll results, he is, in effect, paying attention to the views of the people. Any other interpretation is nonsense.
George Gallup
Renewable energy means good paying jobs along with clean air and water.
Roy Cooper
I don’t look at paying $8 billion for the directories business of Qwest as the thing that would really excite me… I’m looking at a connection to the human being where it’s interesting.
Craig McCaw
As a doctor, I saw firsthand the problems many patients face finding a doctor, navigating the system, and paying their health care bills.
Charles Boustany
We have to forget the past. History is something that even today we are paying the consequences, and the future is integration. We all as a people, as citizens, as the leadership of both countries should be looking in that direction.
Atifete Jahjaga
I am the consequence of a particular type of demographic movement, one that has always involved paying a high price. But I don’t know much about styles or genres. I only know notes and chords.
Concha Buika
I was a general contractor when I was paying for my first record.
Grace Potter
‘Simplifying’ the tax code is a priority mainly for people who make enough money to want to avoid paying taxes, and who make their money by means unorthodox enough to make avoiding taxes possible and desirable.
Alex Pareene
The way Everest is guided is very different from the way other mountains are guided, and it flies in the face of values I hold dear: self-reliance, taking responsibility for what you do, making your own decisions, trusting your judgment – the kind of judgment that comes only through paying your dues, through experience.
Jon Krakauer
Whether they’re paying for it or not is not really relevant. They’re investing a significant amount of time in our content. At some point, commercial opportunities will materialise for greater percentages of that audience.
Bobby Kotick
I knew I was outspoken when I was a kid because, whenever my parents had company coming over, they would pay me to leave. ‘Go see your grandmother. Get out of here.’ That was my first paying gig.
Wanda Sykes
When I first started out in Telugu cinema, I signed anything and everything that came my way. I was 18, was immature, and it felt like a good idea that ‘Oh, they are paying me a good amount of money.’ I was young, naive; I had zero ambition, and honestly, it wasn’t my calling.
Ileana D’Cruz
As many people have chronicled, the decision to fight in Vietnam was a years-long accretion of step-by-step choices, each of which could be rationalized at the time. Invading Iraq was an unforced, unnecessary decision to risk everything on a ‘war of choice’ whose costs we are still paying.
James Fallows
You can lull the paying customers as long as they get slapped.
Alan Rickman
People are going to paying attention to him whether they love him or hate him. So I think Tiger is a huge focus point on a stage that is as little as golf.
Fred Funk
I feel like there’s this misconception that immigrants come here and just don’t care about the system and paying taxes, and that’s not true.
Diane Guerrero
The white working class wants jobs. They don’t want to be stuck trying to make ends meet with part-time work and government assistance. They want a good paying job that they can take pride in. The type of job that has fled America thanks to the Left.
Milo Yiannopoulos
Ultimately, if someone’s paying hard-earned money to see me play live, they don’t want a rant about what’s happening on the other side of the world. They don’t want to know which way they should vote.
Richard Ashcroft
Truth is simply a compliment paid to sentences seen to be paying their way.
Richard Rorty
I was a young girl the first time I learned about the concept of paying it forward.
Lynn Schusterman
Bad debt is debt that makes you poorer. I count the mortgage on my home as bad debt, because I’m the one paying on it. Other forms of bad debt are car payments, credit card balances, or other consumer loans.
Robert Kiyosaki
People of my generation are used to collecting the heroic boys. And they’re used to paying a lot of money for heroic boys. I don’t make a third of what a guy would make.
Marilyn Minter
Many of the things we do at Basecamp would be considered unusual at most companies: paying for employees’ hobbies, allowing our team to work from anywhere, even footing the bill for fresh fruits and veggies in our staff members’ homes.
Jason Fried
In any marriage, it seems, love is when you keep paying attention.
Elizabeth Flock
It’s really a question of fairness and what kind of country we’re going to live in. There are 22,000 people making over $1 million. They’re paying an effective tax rate in the teens. As Warren Buffett said, he pays less in taxes effectively than his secretary does. That’s not right.
David Plouffe
I think that people should be paying a lot more attention to other issues, rather than who’s the top 10 this or… who’s the sexiest or the most beautiful.
Robert Redford
We don’t make movies for critics. I’ve done four movies; there’s millions upon millions upon millions of people who’ve paid to see them. Somebody likes them. My greatest joy is to sit anonymously in a dark theater and watch it with an audience, a paying audience.
Michael Bay
If someone really wants my company’s business, why shouldn’t he be able to do everything he can – including paying me off – to get that business? Because bribery encourages people to make decisions based on the wrong criteria, which means in the business world that it distorts the efficient allocation of resources.
James Surowiecki
No kidding. That’s really true. You’re paying your own bills through this. It’s not a pleasant experience.
Bruce Babbitt
Practically, the desirable situation ought to be one in which any reasonably responsible person willing to accept available employment can find a job paying a living wage within 48 hours.
William Vickrey
I want to be on a successful team, and I know that paying one or two or three players premium hurts your chances of being able to bring in extra talent.
Jay Cutler
Nothing irritates me more than going to see an artist and paying all this money and then have them rant about very specific political opinions.
John Corabi
On the other hand, now that I’m not dependent on fiction for my income, I’ve been writing more short stories despite the fact that there’s no real paying market for short horror other than Cemetery Dance.
Stephen R. George
When you’re in there getting buckets, you’re not really paying attention to who’s there. You’re just doing your thing.
Gilbert Arenas
The gift of giving and paying it forward has always been traits I consider to be invaluable.
Jon Taffer
When, as an individual, you are not paying taxes, it is evasion. As a corporate, it is legal shrewdness or tax engineering.
Jose Angel Gurria
Just because I am paying attention to politics and culture doesn’t mean that I should be talking about the health-care bill, talking about the minutiae.
Andrew Breitbart
Those who claim that they need cash because they are unable to pay labourers are those who are not paying minimum wages.
Arundhati Bhattacharya
Whether fuel cell system development in central Oregon, wind power generation along the Columbia Gorge, or geothermal energy in southern Oregon, investing in new energy sources makes America more energy independent while creating good paying, environmentally friendly jobs.
Greg Walden
I never, ever pay attention to the ratings. I stopped paying attention to the ratings somewhere around season two or three of ‘Grey’s.’ It’s something I have no control over, so I don’t even pay attention.
Shonda Rhimes
Garage music came up when people weren’t paying attention.
I have a passion for music; I love music. But I also have a passion for money and paying my bills.
Cardi B
I’ve ended up feeling fonder of ‘The Paying Guests’ than of any of my other novels.
Sarah Waters
Programmers have been wandering out and shooting a shotgun into the night sky and hoping they hit something, and I end up paying $150 for channels full of nothing I want to watch.
Rick Smolan
Like many other Americans, I’m tired of the U.S. taxpayer paying for foreign wars, especially when the countries we defend have raked in huge oil profits.
Bob Beckel
If people are paying money to see me, then I want them to walk away from the show knowing they had a really great time. I want it to be very energetic and to have fun, sad, emotional and uplifting moments. I want it to have everything!
Olly Murs
I’ve tried to be open to what’s going on and paying close attention, not letting things that inspire me to pass me by.
Jason Isbell
I was really not into school. Everything was distracting to me. I would have a beat in my head or a song. I was always not paying attention, just daydreaming.
I feel like, paying homage to an artist, it’s better to do something that’s inspired by them – a new work that’s inspired by them – versus another person saying they redid your song.
Robert Glasper
The stunning thing about the world as it is, is that we have a tremendously large problem in it: namely, one-third of all human deaths, 80-million every year from poverty-related causes, trivial diseases and so on, and stunningly, nobody is really paying attention to it.
Thomas Pogge
I’m a voracious reader, and I like to explore all sorts of writing without prejudice and without paying any attention to labels, conventions or silly critical fads.
Carlos Ruiz Zafon
If someone has money, they can put their child in a private school, paying tens of thousands of dollars for tuition. But their child’s needs are met. What is lacking is options for that single mom with three kids, or just that intact family but lower income.
Bill Cassidy
Brain studies of mental workouts in which you sustain a single, chosen focus show that the more you detach from what’s distracting you and refocus on what you should be paying attention to, the stronger this brain circuitry becomes.
Daniel Goleman
America and the world are paying a high price for devotion to the extreme anti-government ideology embraced by Donald Trump and his Republican party.
Joseph Stiglitz
Here’s where the insurance companies really fail us. They over-pay hospitals, specialists and drug companies and then raise premiums to cover the costs. Further, when they pay hospitals 115% of what it should cost to care for a patient, they are paying for inefficiency that can be dangerous.
Alex Gibney
My parents are very democratic and liberal people who made the mistake of being democratic and liberal in the upbringing of their children! And in my case, they are still paying for it! Paying in the literal sense as well.
Swara Bhaskar
If God wants us to do a thing, he should make his wishes sufficiently clear. Sensible people will wait till he has done this before paying much attention to him.
Samuel Butler
Tokyo – still – offers the most tightly integrated infrastructure, where smooth, technology-driven experiences take place when engaging in everyday actions, such as verifying personal identity, paying for goods, and buying tickets.
Jan Chipchase
There’s something odd about working 24/7, being consumed with everything that’s happening in Iraq, and then coming back to the country that ordered you over there only to realize that a lot of Americans are not really paying attention.
Phil Klay
I currently live independently without any funded support. I’m educated, and I’m employed. I enjoy paying my taxes and contributing to the economic life of Australia.
Stella Young
Technology businesses in general are susceptible to hacking. That’s why you have to work really, really, really hard with law enforcement, with security experts, internal and external groups, to make sure you’re paying attention and addressing security concerns.
Evan Spiegel
I think Canada has a great story, and I’m glad to tell it. And if there’s a moment where the world is paying a little more attention to Canada, well, I think it’s important to try and capitalize on that.
Justin Trudeau
Paying attention to what we allow ourselves to pay attention to is a tricky thing. It’s like being in two places at once but completely worth the discipline. We can react mindlessly or respond mindfully. It’s up to us.
Tara Stiles
I started LearnVest with a tiny savings account where I paid designers, technologists, and even bartered… Because I started with paying for things myself with my own savings, it sharpened my focus of how to spend money.
Alexa Von Tobel
The only thing that hurts more than paying an income tax is not having to pay an income tax.
Thomas Dewar
If large financial institutions can break the law and accumulate million in profits – and, if they get caught, settle by paying out of those profits – they do not have much incentive to follow the law.
Elizabeth Warren
I had a pension that I was paying into for 27 years… It’s now worth less than a Herman Cain endorsement.
Martin Bashir
The main thing was finding this… voice that I had interest in, which I’ll call the quiet-yet-stoic voice: the very quiet yet very strong voice that I developed, that people would want to hear and that was worth paying attention to.
Gillian Welch
People think of taxes as money just being robbed from you. They don’t consider the benefits of paying taxes. The benefits that they get and also the benefit of just being a part of a large group of people: a town, or a city, or a country, or a society that allegedly should stand together and all try to help each other.
Michael Schur
If you think of paying court to the men in power, your eternal ruin is assured.
I never had a paying job that was not in theatre.
Peter Brook
The royalty any author gets is dependent on his track record and marketability and often on the price of his book, too. The higher you price a book, the more comfortable your publisher will be in paying you a higher royalty.
Ravi Subramanian
I’ve been paying a lot of money in state income taxes, and I’ve been happy to do it, but when this last thing happened, this 50 percent increase in the tax rate, it was just too much.
Tom Golisano
When you’re being looked at very hard, it’s very hard to look back. And that made me stop paying attention to the world in a way that allowed me then to write about it.
Andrew Motion
I know people who have been without a home for ages, and lots of my friends are sofa surfing because they are in between jobs or saving for degrees and other studies – paying ВЈ500 rent every month is just not feasible for them.
Kathryn Prescott
I have a satellite radio show called ‘The Legends of Reggae.’ It’s a cool way to branch out and do other things. I’m paying respect to the legends of reggae.
Ziggy Marley
Even when I was struggling and had horrible day jobs and wanted to be successful but wasn’t finding my way in, I knew what I had to do. I knew I had to keep working at it and keep putting material out there, even if no one was paying me for it.
Billy Eichner
Mark Fox is always criticized recruiting: he can’t keep the Georgia kids home. What that means – he’s not cheating and paying. That’s what it means.
Jeff Van Gundy
I think the Bush Administration was bound and determined on regime change, and we will be paying the price of that for some time to come.
Valerie Plame
I’m paying more taxes inside my company and personally than I’ll ever receive from Congress.
Markwayne Mullin
If you have a company that doesn’t sell its goods or services abroad and focuses only on the domestic market, it will keep paying a price.
Brunello Cucinelli
We don’t have the money in America to keep paying for the education of everybody else’s children from around the world. We simply don’t have the financial resources to do that.
Mo Brooks
If someone else is paying for it, food just tastes a lot better.
Gilbert Gottfried
There’s nothing wrong with paying taxes; they should be paid in proportion to how rich you are. This idea that you’re going to get better growth by cutting taxes at the top has no historical justification. And it’s certainly not an argument in favor of capitalism.
John Ralston Saul
When you are interviewing refugees, each person you talk to has a different story that could come from a horror movie. So many people talk about seeing their families get murdered before their eyes. Then I go to Central Park, and people are talking about their third divorce and paying tuition.
Brandon Stanton
The typical minimum wage earner is a provider and a breadwinner – most likely a woman – responsible for paying bills, running a household and raising children.
Tom Perez
The institutions of the European Union, and the states that belong to this union, each and every one, are paying the price of our failures, hesitations and contradictions. We should each ask ourselves how personally responsible we are.
Giorgio Napolitano
It’s all about learning your craft and honing it in and really paying attention to people who are doing it and what their advice is. It’s like anything: it takes years and years and years. A lot of it comes down to work ethic.
Diego Klattenhoff
If I have an accountant that just reports I just invested $10 million in my business, and he doesn’t exactly itemize where every cost goes, it gives a flag to the government. They want to make sure that the reason I’m not paying taxes is because I’m reinvesting in these businesses and not trying to hide stuff.
Damon Dash
You’ve seen ‘Shrek,’ right? It’s a children’s movie, but there are adult jokes in there if you’re paying attention and you’re old enough to get it. That’s what we try to do with the New Day.
Xavier Woods
Nobody is exempt from being respectful to the business and paying homage to the guys drawing money. We all have done it. Steve Austin did it; The Rock did it.
Sean Waltman
I’ve been accused of not really paying attention to a sentence unless my name comes up in it twice.
Matthew Perry
There’s only one shot you have at a movie, and that’s your best shot. If you can’t give it that, don’t go. They’re paying you! You gotta do a job for them.
Tom Wilkinson
The Internet has been a blessing and a curse. The curse we know: A lot of people appropriating your intellectual property without paying for it. But I think it’s important to realize the blessing of the Internet, which is that everybody has a voice and you can break through, even without a record company.
Gloria Estefan
We legitimately walked into ‘Anthem’ head-on, not paying enough attention to internal band tension.
Isaac Hanson
You don’t forget you have Parkinson’s disease, believe me, especially in the shower. If you are not paying attention, you fall down.
Linda Ronstadt
And that is called paying the Dane-geld; but we’ve proved it again and again, that if once you have paid him the Dane-geld you never get rid of the Dane.
Rudyard Kipling
Paying more heed to the lessons of the past might teach us to be a little more cautious about some of the political decisions taken today.
Michael Morpurgo
There is one rule for the industrialist and that is: Make the best quality of goods possible at the lowest cost possible, paying the highest wages possible.
Henry Ford
I’d like to make mistakes on my own dime and not have a herd of people tell me what I’m doing wrong. and I’m also still trying to find and develop my voice as a filmmaker, and I think that’s easier to do on your own terms than trying to satisfy a bunch of people that are paying for the movie.
Katie Aselton
When I was in the rock band, I got to do whatever I wanted. I had people paying my bills, and I didn’t have time to grow up. When I got sober and left Korn, it was like, ‘OK, now I can mature.’
Brian Welch
None of us want to ever face a choice between putting food on the table or paying rent.
Deb Haaland
If I start paying attention to the mechanics of a film while watching it, then it’s generally a bad film.
Terry Zwigoff
We’ve become such a multitasking society that just paying attention to the road doesn’t seem to be that important anymore. I have to remind my kids all the time that that’s what you’re supposed to be doing in the car.
Andie MacDowell
I was given a thick paperback copy of the ‘Guinness Book of Records’ when I was 11 years old, and I read it gluttonously, cover to cover, paying special lip-smacking attention to all the incredibly gruesome chapters about the violence of human history.
Russell Smith
I believe the election and reelection of Obama were among the most conspicuous acts of denial in recent years. Voters just stopped paying attention. They accepted consistently bad behavior and rewarded it. Then they wonder why they get more bad behavior.
Allen West
I haven’t been paying attention to politics long enough to have really smart opinions.
Biz Stone
Quite often I can be in a bookshop, standing beneath a great big picture of myself and paying for a book with a credit card clearly marked John Grisham, yet no one recognises me. I often say I’m a famous author in a country where no one reads.
John Grisham
I have no problem paying my dues and I have no problem going out and working the club circuit.
Leif Garrett
Performers have the right to say what they want to, and anyone paying money has the right to accept or reject the art and entertainment that’s available.
Penn Jillette
We have so many people retiring that we do not have enough people paying into the system to be able to provide the benefits for those collecting those benefits.
Chris Chocola
I was very chatty and talkative and always getting sent out of class for talking too much and not paying attention, passing notes.
Lucy Punch
When I was just straight-up rapping, I feel like everyone wasn’t paying attention as much, but the moment I started singing – case in point, ‘Clout Cobain’ – it affected more people.
Denzel Curry
It doesn’t bother me when people try to deconstruct my songs – because at least they’re looking at the lyrics, and paying attention to the way the story is told.
Taylor Swift
If in 1989 I said, ‘I have an idea: Bottle water and sell it. And charge more than a beer,’ they would have chased me around with a giant butterfly net. The same with paying to watch a television station.
Adam Carolla
Am I the next Bill Simmons? I don’t think so. I haven’t built a media property. He’s the best at finding voices he likes and paying people money to work for him.
Katie Nolan
The growing attention Americans are paying to what they put into their mouths has touched off a new scramble by the processed-food companies to address health concerns.
Michael Moss
If taxpayers want better results from Congress, they must stop paying their elected officials for failure. After all, you get what you pay for.
Jim Cooper
There are no free lunches in life. You have to earn it. I am paying my dues. People have accused me of having it easy because I am Amitabh Bachchan’s son. Yes, I am his son, and I’ve never run away from it. I work hard to make him proud.
Abhishek Bachchan
If a trip is worth taking, members of Congress should be prepared to justify paying for it out of their office accounts.
Russ Feingold
It seems very clear to me that we, in the West, cannot afford to continue assuming propriety over the world’s resources in a careless, greedy way without paying for it – not only with the lives of our loved ones, but also with our souls.
Alexandra Fuller
Being a good songwriter means paying attention and sticking your hand out the window to catch the song on the way to someone else’s house!
Nanci Griffith
Mark-to-market losses are not real loss. It’s a notional loss. What we can monitor is the credit quality of the underlying papers. Are the companies paying interest on time? Is there any deterioration in the credit quality of these companies?
Chanda Kochhar
And a special thank you to the citizens of Massachusetts: You are paying all the taxes, creating all the jobs, raising all the children. This government is yours. Thank you for letting me serve you. I love this job.
Mitt Romney
We believe that business is the engine that drives the car. You’ve got to build your business base. That means creating more jobs, better paying jobs – that’s how you raise your standard of living. That’s how you raise your quality of life. That’s what funds all the other services people want from government.
John Hoeven
Our argument is everybody ought to be paying lower rates, and we ought to be focused on growing the economy and rebuilding the middle class.
Steve Scalise
I think it’s something each team has to decide on, but I think the guard of honour is supposed to be a way of paying tribute to the opposing players.
Ernesto Valverde
Unfortunately, I’ve got airplanes that I can’t even afford to use today that are sitting there. I’m still paying insurance on them; I’m still paying payments.
Robby Gordon
I’m in the position where I don’t have to make commercial music to feed myself, so I have the luxury of being more experimental, if that’s what I choose to do. I guess I’ve earned the right by being in the business for a while and paying the dues and taking the lumps.
Lindsey Buckingham
To force a change, sometimes you need to stand up. You know what you’re worth – rather than what your employer is paying you.
Alex Morgan
I always want to say to people who want to be rich and famous: ‘try being rich first’. See if that doesn’t cover most of it. There’s not much downside to being rich, other than paying taxes and having your relatives ask you for money. But when you become famous, you end up with a 24-hour job.
Bill Murray
If you’re going to be a media brand and not just a linear television brand, then you have to make sure you’re speaking to all women and all interests, so it may mean that you end up smaller audiences serving individual pieces of content, but the aggregate is what’s important and what we’re paying attention to.
Nancy Dubuc
If you can manipulate news, a judge can manipulate the law. A smart lawyer can keep a killer out of jail, a smart accountant can keep a thief from paying taxes, a smart reporter could ruin your reputation- unfairly.
Mario Cuomo
I’m going to announce in the very near future, I’m going to lead by example and start paying 20 percent of my health insurance.
Terry Branstad
I love loyalty, and I love paying back my end of loyalty, you know what I’m saying? I love making it full circle.
BJ the Chicago Kid
Faced with the crippling sanctions, Iran could simply decide it is paying too high a cost to pursue its nuclear program and could opt for negotiations and reconciliation with the United States and other members of the international community. This is clearly the preferred option of American leaders.
Richard Engel
I started doing non-surf stuff like commercials, short films, and music videos and just started expanding my filmmaking that way. I started doing that more for a career: you know, it was paying the bills, and it was challenging. I was stimulated by it.
Taylor Steele
I’ve always had to prove myself to people growing up. I had to show them that I could do this and I could do that and paying no mind to what the critics said.
Russell Westbrook
The bottom line is, until we’re helping people to stop smoking, screening for breast cancer, giving Pap smears, giving prenatal care to pregnant women, we should not go into publicly paying for the artificial heart, which will benefit at great cost only a few people.
Richard Lamm
In some egregious cases, cities built new stadiums even while their citizens were still paying off old stadiums that had since closed. This is corporate welfare run amok, and a gross misuse of American citizens’ tax money – something the government must treat with respect.
Matt Gaetz
Paying attention to my breath makes me happy to be alive. And that really grounds me during a performance.
Jessie Reyez
I’ve always been paying my taxes and I’ve always been trying to comply.
Wesley Snipes
I love the web, but man, I look at my browser, and there are, like, twenty tabs up there, all jostling for space and time, all framed by a mosaic of other apps, other work, other entertainment… so even when I really am paying attention to something on the web, there’s this peripheral haze.
Robin Sloan
Usually during the regular season, if you’re starting pitcher, you’re kind of walking back and forth from the clubhouse to the dugout and not really paying attention to what’s going on.
Jon Lester
The way you can be careful of the catastrophe that success can bring is by paying attention to something else that comes along with success – responsibility.
El DeBarge
You may not have any extra talent, but maybe you are just paying more attention to what you are doing.
Alan Shepard
Every dollar I can’t commit to my company that’s paid in taxes is paying a government that I believe is too big and doing way too much that I don’t want done.
Curt Schilling
There’s something very soothing about the simplicity of doing what’s right in front of you: paying the rent, buying groceries, and when there’s a little extra for a treat like cinnamon rolls, whoopee! When you live paycheck to paycheck, you only have so much to lose.
Ali Liebegott
My first paying job might have been doing a play, actually. My mom paid me to dress up as a flounder at my sister’s ‘Little Mermaid’ – themed birthday party when I was little.
Paul Dano
One of the blessings that comes from paying a full tithing is developing faith to live an even higher law. To live in the celestial kingdom, we must live the law of consecration. There we must be able to feel that all we are and all we have belong to God.
Henry B. Eyring
I’m really not used to people paying attention to my writing.
Christopher Priest
I don’t mind paying the taxes I pay, which is pretty considerable.
Bill Bennett
When you look at what we spend on entertainment, whether it’s on CDs, music, DVDs, there is so much money invested in that, people want to know a little more about the stars they’re paying to see or hear.
Mary Hart
I was turning up at sets where inexperienced people were making these badly written films – but they were doing it; that was the point. They were getting their films out there. And they were paying me, so they obviously had access to money. I just thought, ‘I can make something better than this.’
Dexter Fletcher
If anyone sees anything in ‘Black Lightning’ that seems foreign to them, then they haven’t been paying attention. This is a uniquely American experience.
Salim Akil
Being fined for violating the rules of your league is not the same as a shop owner on Main Street paying to have a new sign hung in front of their business. One is a business expense, the other is a punishment.
Tony Cardenas
This goes for our songwriting as well as our success as a band – the minute we stopped chasing what we thought people wanted to hear and started writing things that moved us, that’s when people started paying attention.
Matthew Ramsey
My first two books did nada. I ended up paying the publishers.
Mario Benedetti
There’s something fundamentally grubby about the rich paying people to seek out cracks in the system to hide their money.
Robert Rinder
The first paying voice-over gig I ever got was for a company called Harvard Community Health Plan, which is a Boston-based New England health care provider. I inherited a deep, gravelly voice from my dad, who has always claimed that if I ever get injured, he’ll just take over for me.
Will Arnett
Paying extra for prime placement can often pay off.
John Quelch
I don’t need the credits for playing the blues and paying the dues. I’ve already done it. There are some other things to do here – movies and scores and voice-overs.
Taj Mahal
I want to grow up to be Tom Keneally or David Malouf: still in the game, relevant, putting out quality work, and paying tax aged 78 and 80.
Nick Earls
To the humblest among them, who may be listening to me now, I want to say that the masterpiece to which you are paying historic homage this evening is a painting which he has saved.
Andre Malraux
Since I work in home solar, I can’t resist focusing on the amazing developments happening here. What many homeowners don’t know is that they can have solar installed on their roofs without owning the panels or paying the high upfront costs.
Lynn Jurich
I feel like being a door person was like college in a sense. I could watch comedy on a professional level seven nights a week without paying, and they would pay me a nominal amount of money to be there.
Mike Birbiglia
Age about 30, I stopped looking up my books in bookstores. Paying attention to the marketplace isn’t a healthy thing for me.
Mary Karr
The death of Yemeni strongman Ali Abdullah Saleh shows that Saudi Arabia is paying for its betrayal of the Arab spring in Yemen in 2011.
Jamal Khashoggi
Some of the things I think I learned from that were very educational as far as just paying bills – the basics in dealing with a restaurant like that. It was just life – the education involved in running the organization, even on a small level.
Todd English
If you are worried about job security and do not have an adequate emergency fund (ideally eight months’ worth of living expenses stashed away in a federally insured bank or credit union), you need to focus more on saving money than paying down the balance on your credit cards.
Suze Orman
Not graduating high school on time leads to fewer chances of attending college and obtaining good paying jobs, and creates instead higher chances of incarceration and unemployment.
Al Sharpton
Modern cynics and skeptics… see no harm in paying those to whom they entrust the minds of their children a smaller wage than is paid to those to whom they entrust the care of their plumbing.
John F. Kennedy
I don’t like paying too much for anything or wasting it. I think that I’m more of a balanced individual rather than a dichotomy.
John Caudwell
I thought administration was the running of the office. The Xerox machine. Paying bills.
Lesley Stahl
The worst career advice is to just do something because it’s paying, and there are a lot people out there that will push you to take a job because of money. I am not motivated by money, and I have found a lot of disappointment when I’ve had to do something because I needed to support myself in that way.
Melina Matsoukas
Some companies are worth paying for up front.
Aileen Lee
Worrying is like paying on a debt that may never come due.
Will Rogers
We’ve got people that are paying premiums of $1,000 a month out there, and then they’ve got a deductible of $1,000. If you’re making $40,000, $50,000, $60,000 out there and you’ve got an Obamacare plan, by and large you’ve got an insurance card, but you don’t have any care because you can’t afford the deductible.
Tom Price
I think the one lesson I have learned is that there is no substitute for paying attention.
Diane Sawyer
If anything, taxes for the lower and middle class and maybe even the upper middle class should even probably be cut further. But I think that people at the high end – people like myself – should be paying a lot more in taxes. We have it better than we’ve ever had it.
Warren Buffett
But MTV relishes its vestigial role as a star maker, so every year it puts all its clout into making the VMAs the biggest, splashiest, loudest show-biz extravaganza of the year, honoring all this music for existing, after a year of paying barely any attention to it.
Rob Sheffield
A lot of actors on film sets… very often they’re not paying attention to the physical world around them. I think through studying art, I’ve always had that awareness and that’s something that I’ve wanted to bring in to go beyond acting… As a form of expression, they are intrinsically linked.
Andy Serkis
Families out there know that if they get in trouble and they’ve spent up a bunch of money and they’ve borrowed and they are up to hock to their necks, the thing they’ve got to do is start paying off what they owe and cut back their spending.
Mike Huckabee
You, as a manager, are judged on results and not on the work you do and the performance of the team. Imagine paying a guy a huge amount of money and then judging him not on the things he can control, but on those he can’t.
Carlo Ancelotti
Every time I would open my mouth to sing, everybody was paying attention to me. It became a habit.
Nana Mouskouri
The federal government should only be providing services for emergencies. You and I, taxpayers, shouldn’t be paying for cell phones so someone can have a social life. I just don’t think it’s appropriate.
Tim Griffin
Oh yeah, I mean every fighter has got be dedicated, learn how to sacrifice, know what the devotion is all about, make sure you’re paying attention and studying your art.
Marvin Hagler
How much are we willing to lose from our already short lives by losing ourselves in our Blackberries, our iPhones, by not paying attention to the human being across from us who is talking with us, by being so lazy that we’re not willing to process deeply?
Joshua Foer
I think, collectively, we should be paying more attention to what is going on around us in the world among people who don’t have the advantages that we have.
Anthony Fauci
I really work on paying attention to the clues my self is giving myself. For instance, I think of myself in the third person. That allows me to manage myself better.
Gretchen Rubin
Ambient awareness is the experience of knowing what’s going on in the lives of other people – what they’re thinking about, what they’re doing, what they’re looking at – by paying attention to the small stray status messages that people are putting online.
Clive Thompson
I never set out to write songs about the world around me… it just kind of came about as a result of paying more attention to things.
Iris Dement
My therapy has come from paying attention to my life.
Oprah Winfrey
This was a tragic event in human history, but by paying tribute to the Armenian community we ensure the lessons of the Armenian genocide are properly understood and acknowledged.
Jerry Costello
I was impressed by the Taj Mahal. A good bit of work, well looked after, worth paying money to see.
Karl Pilkington
When you’re headlining, people are paying to come see you specifically. It’s a different kind of pressure, because you’ve got to deliver. You’ve got to give these people what they paid for. It’s a different mind state, a different type of mentality, but it’s honestly a pretty good problem to have, you know?
J. Cole
Working on ‘Fresh Off the Boat’ has been really enlightening to me because it’s made me actually think about the roles that Asians and Asian-American women have played in media. Not because I didn’t think it was important before, but because before, I was really focused on just paying my rent.
Constance Wu
We have got a – we’ve got a good federal work force, but we have too many people, and we’re paying them too much money.
Jason Chaffetz
Any kind of blockage is heart disease; when you have a blood clot anywhere, that’s heart disease. When Wilt Chamberlain died, strongest man I ever met in my life, I started paying attention.
John Salley
When I got a deposit on my very first cake, I took that deposit and I bought some cake mix with it. I’ve never taken a loan – ever. And we’re doing this expansion just like everything we’ve done in this bakery as we’ve grown. If we weren’t able to afford paying for something cash, we didn’t buy it.
Duff Goldman
A typical Ponzi scheme involves taking money from investors, then paying them off with money taken from new investors, rather than paying them from actual earnings.
Amy Goodman
If you don’t have trouble paying the rent, you have trouble doing something else; one needs just a certain amount of trouble.
Robert Rauschenberg
For too many years, politicians in Washington have been eager to pledge more hard-earned taxpayer dollars to help deal with the student debt load. But this doesn’t sit right with the many Americans who take pride in making fiscally responsible choices and paying off their loans on time.
John Kline
Paying to teach in the trenches was like putting my face through a cutout hole at a carnival while a quarterback threw pies at me. At least with a carnival, I’d see it coming.
Erin Gruwell
In London the average person is paying 50 per cent of their income on rent. Just think how much better off people would feel if that number was a lot lower.
Liz Truss
Just like paying a toll to use a freeway, the token can be the pay-per-use rail for getting on the blockchain infrastructure or for using the product. This also ensures that users have skin in the game.
William Mougayar
It’s the duty of all novelists, all painters, all musicians, all people who try to make art move: to look for something they feel authentically, without paying attention to styles.
Nathalie Sarraute
People really are our most important resource, and people who don’t realize that and choose not to live that way, choose not to lead that way, are paying a price for that in many of our companies, many of our organizations.
Chesley Sullenberger
As we go through this transition where a lot more people will be reading on devices, nobody is paying enough attention to make sure it’s a smooth transition. I believe we still need places where people can go to handle, hold and talk about books, get information about what books are out there, and so on.
James Patterson
I remember the first pangs of stress arriving at the end of school. Once I graduated I had to get a full-time job, worry about health insurance, saving money, paying rent – things I’d never thought about before.
Ezra Koenig
If you support the war on drugs in its present form, then you’re only paying lip-service to the defense of freedom, and you don’t really grasp the concept of the sovereign individual human being.
Neal Boortz
The gun dealer is not only paying these two police officers, but more importantly, the gun dealer has said he will never again sell more than one gun to a customer. This is exactly what we’re trying to get the gun industry across the country to do.
Michael D. Barnes
When you’re paying millions of dollars for somebody to coach your team, you can find somebody good.
Jalen Rose
When you think about it, we actors are kind of prostitutes. We get paid to feign attraction and love. Other people are paying to watch us kissing someone, touching someone, doing things people in a normal monogamous relationship would never do with anyone who’s not their partner. It’s really kind of gross.
Megan Fox
I got a good-enough adolescence. I mean, there’s a sense wherein you skip a part of childhood, too, when you start working at that age I did; I was out working and out of home at 15, paying my own way in the world.
Ben Mendelsohn
My family and high school friends were the only people who were with me every step of the way through my mothers’ illness. They sat by my side year after year and consoled me. If they ever sent me a bill, I would be paying them off for the rest of my life.
Jenna Morasca
In removing the friction involved in paying bills, electronic billing has substantially increased the friction involved in not paying them.
Timothy Noah
Dogs are not people. Be leery of any woman who refers to her dogs as her ‘kids,’ because you’ll only end up paying for their schooling.
Garry Shandling
I’ve been shocked for a long time in a lot of circumstances. I get shocked when they say, ‘Hey, we’re paying ya.’
Angus Young
While a reverse mortgage can indeed be a viable way to generate income, it is very important to understand that after you take out a reverse mortgage, you will still be responsible for paying the property tax, the insurance premium, and all the maintenance costs for your home.
Suze Orman
Everybody has to be responsible for their own actions – and if they do something wrong, I believe in paying for it.
Kate Mara
I’ve been recognised in garages. I’ll be paying for my petrol, and I’ll see this guy looking at me, thinking, ‘Is it him?’ Then he’ll be looking at my car: ‘No, he couldn’t be driving that car.’ I’ve actually had two people say to me:,’Hello Dominic, I thought you might have a better car than that, mate!’
Dominic Holland
In the case of ‘Chernobyl,’ we’re telling a story of a government that runs on lies the way cars run on fuel, and there are people who ultimately end up paying the price for those lies – and a certain culture of denial is in place, and the degradation of expertise is in place.
Craig Mazin
I think in any writing you’re paying attention to detail.
Peter Matthiessen
All I am trying to do is communicate a story that I can visualize in my head, into something better for the audience. If that means paying attention to detail then that’s what I will do.
Dileesh Pothan
I get my inspiration from looking at the world and paying attention to people and just looking closely. Also from reading. I get so much inspiration from other authors.
Kate DiCamillo
We Greeks want change. We know there are problems in our system. We have great potential but we need to manage our country well. Now that hasn’t been done over the last decades. And that is, of course, what we are paying for.
George Papandreou
I don’t believe in paying full price for clothing.
Toks Olagundoye
It’s always just nice to see your hard work paying off.
Tom Walker
I’m an entertainer. If people are paying good money for tickets they deserve the best show they can see. I don’t get into lighting stuff on fire, but I do believe in going the extra mile.
Bryan White
