Frank Pittman
On a soap opera, you’ll do an episode and a half a day, and in prime time television, you’re hustling to get an episode done in eight days. That’s a little bit frustrating sometimes.

Tom Shales

The Goldstone Committee was formed in April of 2009, after I was not prime minister. So it was a new political situation.

Shinzo Abe
In years of interviewing presidents, prime ministers and chief executives all over the world, I can remember only a handful of times in which a leader has said: ‘I don’t know’ in answer to a question. Perhaps everyone I have ever interviewed knows everything about everything, but I doubt it.

Maxime Bernier
Reading was my hobby, my sport and my activity of choice. It was the prime pleasure of my days, an unfailing escape from whatever realities were distressing me, and the only source of pride I knew, other vanities lying beyond my grasp. I couldn’t do anything else well, but I could do words.
Cynthia Voigt

Robin Hayes
1 is not prime, by definition. 2 is an unnatural prime, 4 is an unnatural prime, and 6 is an unnatural prime. All other natural primes cannot be unnatural primes.

Max Heindel
We want a comprehensive package that covers export subsidies, tariffs and overall levels of support. British Prime Minister Tony Blair is making central to his summit speech that he wants to abolish all export subsidies. It is up to him to push the European Union in that direction, and the U.S. needs to reciprocate.
Kevin Watkins
Prime Minister, I see you’ve already mastered the essential craft of the European politician, namely, the ability to say one thing in this chamber and a very different thing to your home electorate.
Daniel Hannan
The largest known prime number is 2^32582657-1. I am proud to say that I memorized all its digits-in binary.

Sam Gyimah

Shimon Peres
Bobby Orr, I thought he was the greatest player of all time because he was so far ahead of the competition in his prime.
Barry Trotz
I, as prime minister, never went to Washington. Certainly never went to a presidential ranch. I hate to say this, but I wasn’t going to be the pilot fish to the shark, whereas Australia quite happily bobbed along like a happy little pilot fish with a shark who was a messy eater, and I just couldn’t feel like that.
David Lange
One of humanity’s prime drives is to understand and be understood. All other living creatures are designed for highly specialized tasks. Man seems unique as the comprehensive comprehender

R. Buckminster Fuller
When we experience a film, we consciously prime ourselves for illusion. Putting aside will and intellect, we make way for it in our imagination. The sequence of pictures plays directly on our feelings.

Sue Grafton
The sitting prime minister, Jose Aznar, who had strongly backed the U.S.-led Iraq War, was unseated by a challenger who then pulled Spanish troops out of Iraq. The Madrid terrorist attacks are generally regarded as being the key to why Aznar, who had been leading in the polls, was defeated.
Peter Bergen
Although the prime numbers are rigidly determined, they somehow feel like experimental data.
Timothy Gowers

Lionel Jospin
[Science fiction is] a specialized type of fantasy, in which the prime assumption usually is a new scientific discovery or invention.

Ted Sarandos
I think it’s important not to start drawing parallels, for example, between Theresa May, a fairly traditional conservative politician, who’s now prime minister and Le Pen in France. Those aren’t the same and the situation in each country is different.
Barack Obama
I’m a prime example of the way kidney disease strikes silently.
Sean Elliott

If aught be worse than failure from overstress of a life’s prime purpose, it is to sit down content with a little success.
Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
Being the chief minister of a regional government is just a pastime compared with the hellish job of being prime minister of two different communities brought together.
Elio Di Rupo
‘A Perfect Place’ is character-driven. The director for that wanted a couple of identifiable themes with a bunch of variations. That is what I did. The director for ‘The Solitude of Prime Numbers’ did not want that at all.
Mike Patton
If I had been prime minister, I would have offered apologies to the Dutch Jewish community without hesitation. This would refer both to our government’s attitude during the Second World War and to the very late postwar discovery that the restitution process had been poorly conceived.
Els Borst
A President has a great chance; his position is almost that of a king and a prime minister rolled into one. Once he has left office he cannot do very much; and he is a fool if he fails to realize it all and to be profoundly thankful for having had the great chance.
Theodore Roosevelt
AIADMK is committed to supporting an Indian for the Prime Minister’s post.
J. Jayalalithaa
While the United States is a prime example of fair elections, there is room for improvement, starting with passing voter identification laws across the country.
Mercedes Schlapp
But then Iraq happened after September 2001 and America claimed that Al Qaeda was there, and we all know that was a lie and we now know that our own Prime Minister deceived the country terribly.
Clare Short
If I was prime minister, there would be absolutely zero risk that Brexit wouldn’t happen.
Andrea Leadsom
You’ve got the Wall Street situation, the sub-prime situation. You’ve got a black president. We’ve got wars. We’ve got unemployment. But the music doesn’t reflect that. And I challenge anybody to show me a music that’s on the radio that reflects that.
Ice T
We have to consider who is going to be the best prime minister to take on a “one nation” agenda.
Damian Green
We have to be eyes-wide-open with China. If I’m prime minister, we will have a serious, mature approach with China that I think shows our concerns with them on the global stage.
Erin O’Toole
Michael Gove was one of the worst things to ever happen to the education system in this country. David Cameron is the worst Prime Minister this country has ever had.
Layla Moran
I’ve always said that as I’ve gotten older and come into my prime, when I turned 28 would be my best time.
Michael Chiesa
I know my Trotskyites well, and I know you don’t want to be invested in the U.K. if a Trotskyite is prime minister.
Steve Eisman
The suggestion that the prime minister had been flirting with one of the senior women cabinet ministers made me laugh every time I saw it, and I thought, “if you only knew!” Perhaps they should have pushed it a bit harder.
Edwina Currie
I think 60 is when many people hit their prime. We elect many of our presidents in their 60s. At that age, people are full of ideas and their best self. I wanted to dig into my potential and bring out my best self.
Diana Nyad
Since the election of Shinzo Abe as the new Japanese prime minister, by reputation a fervent nationalist, relations between Japan and China have paradoxically improved a little.
Martin Jacques
I started off tagging stuff – I’m not meant to be having tea and biscuits with the prime minister.
Ben Eine
Posterity will do justice to that unprincipled maniac Gladstone – extraordinary mixture of envy, vindictiveness, hypocrisy and superstition; and with one commanding characteristic – whether Prime Minister or Leader of the Opposition, whether preaching, praying, speechifying or scribbling – never a gentleman.
Benjamin Disraeli
We vote to leave, we get rid of this Prime Minister – dishonest Dave [Cameron] – and we get a better Prime Minister.
Nigel Farage
Nobody has achievements like this … you cannot name a Canadian prime minister who has done as many significant things as I did, because there are none.
Brian Mulroney
2 is a proletariat prime, but 4, 6 and 8 are also composite proletariats. Composites of the world unite; you have nothing to lose but your chains!
Karl Marx
As Prime Minister Netanyahu and Defense Minister Barak have repeatedly said, the intelligence and security relationship between the United States and Israel at present is unprecedented. It has never been stronger.
Susan Rice
There must be a few times in life when you stand at a precipice of a decision. When you know there will forever be a Before and an After…I knew there would be no turning back if I designated this moment as my own Prime Meridian from which everything else would be measured.
Justina Chen
My prime motivation is wanting to be happy. I’m not worried about fame. In this profession, it’s not a question of if it ends, it’s when. So it doesn’t matter.
Hugh Dennis
These gun laws are very much the creation of the Prime Minister.
Amanda Vanstone
The greatest enemy of hunger for God is not poison but apple pie. It is not the banquet of the wicked that dulls our appetite for heaven, but endless nibbling at the table of the world. It is not the X-rated video, but the prime-time dribble of triviality we drink in every night.
John Piper
3 is a prime, 5 is a prime, and 7 is a prime. Why bother with non-prime numbers when the primes can do everything?
William of Ockham
Does the Lord intend to make man happy? Sure… but it’s a byproduct, not a prime product.
Paris Reidhead
When Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain’s government fell in May 1940, the nation turned to Churchill. At last, his unique qualities were brought to bear on a supreme challenge, and with his unshakable optimism, his heroic vision, and above all, his splendid speeches, Churchill roused the spirit of the British people.
Gretchen Rubin
It is a high honour to be elected Prime Minister of Australia.
Kevin Rudd
When I was Prime Minister, it’s right – we had a close relationship – but that did not prevent me, when I believed the United States position was wrong, arguing against them.
Bob Hawke
A reporter told me it is very rare to see a woman of my age in the movies. Right! In the movies! But they have been for so long in very serious and important positions in life: scientists, prime ministers, candidates to be the president.
Sonia Braga
There is no “ruler” in our country. Poland is a democracy. Our Prime Minister leads the government; the President is fulfilling his tasks. But there is a little bit left for the party leader.
Jaroslaw Kaczynski
At 26, you’re in your prime as a striker. And in the mid-20s you’re more mature, you have experience in game-deciding situations, you stay relaxed.
Mario Gomez
Some information has to remain in the privy of the office of the Prime Minister and the ministers for the proper administration of government.
Jean Chretien
As the crisis in Syria grows and the humanitarian tragedy becomes more clear, I appreciated Prime Minister Netanyahu’s perspective on the changes and volatility in the region.
Rob Portman
I watched Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech before Congress, and I saw a man who loves his country with all his heart and soul. I also saw a strong leader, which is absolutely crucial for the safety of the Israeli people.
Chuck Norris
Elder Neal A. Maxwell suggests that the prime reason the Savior personally acts as the gatekeeper of the celestial kingdom is not to exclude people, but to personally welcome and embrace those who have made it back home.
Tad R. Callister
I would sooner be prime minister of the moon than run another marathon. I’ve been really lucky. I didn’t have any toenails fall off or anything disgusting like that. I still have all three nipples.
Ryan Reynolds
In my prime, I was the ruler. Simple as that. I understand there’s a lot of great fighters who’ve followed me already since I was the champ – and I hope there’s another who comes along does even better because want to see that – but I haven’t seen anyone do what I did yet.
Roy Jones Jr.
A band which plays songs such as ‘Death Knell’ or ‘Prime Mover’ can’t just stand on the stage with a shirt and jeans-jacket. It must be more awesome than that.
Tobias Forge
I don’t care if I remain prime minister. I’m only interested in doing a good job as long as I’m capable and for as long as I don’t get tired.
Indira Gandhi
T is the summer prime, when the noiseless air in perfumed chalice lies.
Elizabeth Oakes Smith
The prime necessities for success in life are money, athleticism, tailor made clothes and a charming smile.
George Orwell
The fact I’m the third female Prime Minister, I never grew up believing my gender would stand in the way of doing anything I wanted.
Jacinda Ardern
Man makes himself, and he only makes himself completely in proportion as he desacrilizes himself and the world. The sacred is the prime obstacle to his freedom. He will become himself only when he is totally demysticized. He will not be truly free until he has killed the last god.
Mircea Eliade
Children, we cannot control our mind without controlling our desire for taste. The health aspect, not the taste, should be the prime criteria in choosing the food. We cannot relish the blossoming of the heart without foregoing the taste of the tongue.
Mata Amritanandamayi
This was an away-day for the deputy prime minister’s staff, who’ve had a change of responsibilities [on John Prescott’s scandalous playing habits… on the croquet lawn]
Paul Clark
Every season hath its pleasure; Spring may boast her flowery prime, Yet the vineyard’s ruby treasuries Brighten Autumn’s sob’rer time.
Thomas Moore
One’s prime is elusive. You little girls, when you grow up, must be on the alert to recognize your prime at whatever time of your life it may occur. You must then live it to the full.
Muriel Spark
Hair that gleams can send a clear sign that you’re young and in your prime, whatever your actual age.
Helen Fisher
I think if you’ve managed Celtic or Rangers you can go on to be Prime Minister of Great Britain, it’s that hard.
Gordon Strachan
I think it is disgraceful. I think it is completely disgusting that you’ve got a candidate for prime minster who seems to think that human beings are bargaining chips.
Nicola Sturgeon
I’m the guy everybody wanted to live next door. They just didn’t want me to be prime minister.
Neil Kinnock
A cheerful life is what the Muses love. A soaring spirit is their prime delight.
William Wordsworth
My father established the first women’s university in the kingdom, abolished slavery, and tried to establish a constitutional monarchy that separates the position of king from that of prime minister.
Basmah bint Saud
What do you do after you are world-famous and nineteen or twenty and you have sat with prime ministers, kings and queens, the Pope? Do you go back home and take a job? What do you do to keep your sanity? You come back to the real world.
Wilma Rudolph
If your only objective is to be popular, you’re going to be popular but you will be known as the Prime Minister who achieved nothing.
Brian Mulroney
Why add prime numbers? Prime numbers are made to be multiplied, not added.
Lev Landau
Ocarina of Time.’ If that phrase elicits any sort of emotional reaction inside of you, then we really have something in common. When that game came out, I was just reaching the age when N64 was in its prime.
Gordon Hayward
I attribute my lean physique to the regime I’ve been following thanks to my brother Rahul who made sure fitness was of prime importance in my life.
Mukul Dev
I am happy to debate the past with the Prime Minister… I have a big dossier on his past, and I did not even have to sex it up.
Michael Howard
There’s something about prime time television and the way the song is going to come off on the air. I’m very concerned, very self-conscious about that.
Jon Secada
You’re seeing more players come back to MLS in their prime and the homegrown talent coming up that’s of high quality. I think that game’s always continuing to grow, and I’m happy to be part of that growth and come back to the league.
Clint Dempsey
In India, no one becomes prime minister before they are in their mid-70s.
Sharad Pawar
The thing about working in Hollywood is that, at some point, you really get tired of hearing how godless you are, and how if you and the rest of the heathens in Tinsel town would put more God-centric shows on TV, people wouldn’t be abandoning prime time in favor of their Bible study classes.
John Ridley
I think in terms of best players, I would have to say Ronaldo, the real Ronaldo, the Brazilian one. I was fortunate enough to have a year with him at Real Madrid. He was at the end of his career and was probably half the player he was. But, in his prime, he was quite simply astonishing.
Michael Owen
At any kind of Fox function, you’ll see ‘Mad TV’ at the kiddy table in the back, next to the buffet. We’re a late-night sketch show, and there is more money in prime time.
Will Sasso
… unless the actor is able to discourse most eloquently without opening his lips, he lacks the prime essential of a finished artist.
Julia Marlowe
Well, there have been periods in the past when prime ministers of Australia and New Zealand were at each others’ throats publicly and frequently. That’s not productive at all.
Helen Clark
If a fan comes up and it is a middle-aged lady, it is probably from ‘Prime’; if it is a younger girl, it is probably from when I guest-starred on ‘One Tree Hill.’ And if it is, like, a skateboard kid or a hipster kid, I can tell they are ‘How to Make It’ fans.
Bryan Greenberg
As prime minister, I was conscious of walking in Whitlam’s footsteps as our government set about creating a companion to Medicare, the National Disability Insurance Scheme.
Julia Gillard
The main reason why historians have skated over the relationship of Victorian PMs with the press is that they haven’t been looking for it. It takes a lecturer in media studies such as Paul Brighton to point out that media management was part of the job of a Victorian prime minister.
Jane Ridley
We have, or have had women presidents or prime ministers in Liberia, Chile, Germany, Great Britain…and yet the US of A still hasn’t had a women president. It’s just beyond my thinking. Look at Congress.
Billie Jean King
I serve at the discretion of the prime minister.
George Osborne
If the prime minister really believes it, he must be the only person left who thinks that the recent bombs in London had no connection at all with his policy in Iraq.
Kenneth Clarke
It is quite clear that history will record that Margaret Thatcher was the greatest Prime Minister this country has had since Churchill.
Nigel Lawson
President Obama can find time to meet with a YouTube personality who eats cereal out of a bathtub, but not the prime minister of our ally Israel?
Greta Van Susteren
From a personal perspective, I am so looking forward to my new role as a parent. But I am equally focused on my job and responsibilities as prime minister.
Jacinda Ardern
We have a female prime minister [Theresa May] here in the UK. I actually really like her and think she’s wonderful. I think it’s the best thing that’s happened to us in a long time.
Kate Bush
I’m a real geek and fan when it comes to ‘Transformers.’ I remember being at my first rehearsal for this film, and I looked over and saw the tractor trailer. I was thinking to myself, ‘Oh, my. That’s Optimus Prime.’
Kelsey Grammer
I’m a prime example that you don’t have to be the greatest, the most athletic or the tallest.
Danny Green
To know that which lies before us in daily life is the prime wisdom.
John Milton
I love meeting people who’ve read my books. The prime reason to be on the planet is to make things I can show to other people: paintings, books, movies.
Clive Barker
To save and keep our country secure, we need a Prime Minister like Modiji.
Hema Malini
I want to bring back the human encounter into places where material things have a prime status. In a museum, you’re supposed to look at things and not talk to other people.
Tino Sehgal
We have to be cultured in our criticism of a tall leader like our Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Tamilisai Soundararajan
Margaret Thatcher was a 20th century visionary who understood the power of individual freedom versus the tyranny of government collectivism. She was a loyal supporter and friend of the United States and her terms as prime minister were marked as the beginning of the resurgence of the economy of the United Kingdom.
Joe Lhota
With Boris Johnson leading the Conservative Party and as Prime Minister, the United Kingdom, at long last, will have a Prime Minister who believes in Britain and is in tune with the views of the millions of people who voted – over three years ago now – to leave the E.U.
Priti Patel
The saddest moment as Prime Minister is writing letters to families who have lost loved ones in Afghanistan or those who we have tried to help in hostage situations but it hasn’t worked out.
David Cameron
I’m shorting two stocks in the U.K., but I’ve got a screen of about 50, and I might short all 50 if I think Jeremy Corbyn is going to be prime minister.
Steve Eisman
Warhol was a prime example of a schizoid person. Maybe he had Asperger’s, or maybe he was just an amorous human being on earth.
Jim Shaw
I am not deeply involved in Australian politics but I know there are prime ministers, governments around the world who are not acting responsibly in relation to climate change.
Jane Goodall
Every person who is offered a knighthood has the opportunity to say yes or no. You get a letter from the Prime Minister saying you’ve been recommended for a knighthood and there are two little boxes, one says yes, one says no.
Derek Jacobi
Nobody had race savvy like Al Unser in his prime.
Mario Andretti
When I will become prime minister, SC Mishra, Naseemuddin Siddiqui and Swami Prasad Maurya will be Union ministers with with important portfolios but the chief minister of UP will only be a Dalit who has dedicate his life for BSP.
Of course I’d have loved to be Prime Minister. But I’m not nursing a grievance.
Kenneth Clarke
Many leading studios and production houses in India are in the queue to make original content for Netflix and Amazon Prime as well.
Shweta Basu Prasad
I very much wanted to be editor of the ‘New Statesman!’ But I never wanted to be prime minister, except maybe as a little boy.
Paul Johnson
The diiference is that in the private sector you work for yourself, and as Prime Minister I work for every single Haitian – inside Haiti and outside – and for all those who love Haiti as well.
Laurent Lamothe
The prime minister does not represent a particular political party; he is a representative of the whole country.
Rajnath Singh
If our system of cabinet government is to work effectively, the prime minister of the day must appoint ministers he or she trusts and then leave them to carry out that policy.
Nigel Lawson
Nine of 10 whites in Chicago borrow from top-drawer banks and mortgage companies, which the industry calls prime lenders. They lend to people with A credit ratings, making loans at competitive rates.
Bill Dedman
I try to think up material that might apply to the subjects they are studying. How many mitochondria does it take to power a cell? One. Because mitochondria are the powerhouse of the cell. Not ready for prime time, that one.
Mike Birbiglia
Trust and belief are two prime considerations. You must not allow yourself to be opinionated.
James Dean
Any kind of new U.K. federal system would almost certainly demand the creation of a written constitution. Properly drafted, such a document could, among many things, pin down more effectively the proper dimensions of prime ministerial power.
Linda Colley
The Indian government is weak. The Prime Minister is weak and ineffective.
J. Jayalalithaa
One can dismiss the Prime Minister of India most easily. All that is necessary is for Parliament to pass a vote of no-confidence.
Manmohan Singh
I saw my role as prime minister’s wife as being human towards other humans and not treating them badly.
Margaret Whitlam
The United Nations, and the way we approach collective security, must be adapted to changing circumstances. The United Nations is our prime instrument for effective multilateral solutions and a rule-based international order.
Goran Persson
Till now I have never shot a scene without taking account of what stands behind the actors because the relationship between people and their surroundings is of prime importance.
Michelangelo Antonioni
As a student, I had stayed with Winston Churchill; later, I had lunched with Harold Macmillan – in fact, had met most of the post-war prime ministers of Great Britain from Douglas-Home to Tony Blair.
Nigel Hamilton
Imagine the consequences of having the first woman prime minister who is the milk snatcher. [Margaret Thatcher] takes away the nourishment of the nation.
Hilary Mantel
The brain is the only kind of object capable of understanding that the cosmos is even there, or why there are infinitely many prime numbers, or that apples fall because of the curvature of space-time, or that obeying its own inborn instincts can be morally wrong, or that it itself exists.
David Deutsch
The teeming Autumn big with rich increase, bearing the wanton burden of the prime like widowed wombs after their lords decease.
William Shakespeare
I began to appreciate that authentic truth is never simple and that any version of truth handed down from on high – whether by presidents, prime ministers, or archbishops – is inherently suspect. The powerful, I came to see, reveal truth only to the extent that it suits them.
Andrew Bacevich
[Congress] is not the British Parliament, and I hope it never will become the British Parliament… Are we going to bring the president in here and have a question period like the prime minister has in Great Britain?
Trent Lott
When I was in college, I was belittling the woman who later become my wife for not knowing who Boba Fett was, and she responded by asking me if I knew who the Prime Minister of Israel was. Surprisingly? Not Mon Mothma.
Brian K. Vaughan
Here is the prime condition of success: Concentrate your energy, thought and capital exclusively upon the business in which you are engaged. Having begun on one line, resolve to fight it out on that line, to lead in it, adopt every improvement, have the best machinery, and know the most about it.
Andrew Carnegie
I pray for no more youth To perish before its prime; That Revenge and iron-heated War May fade with all that has gone before Into the night of time.
They’re a nasty bunch of people. The Riot Club’s sole purpose is to celebrate wealth, elitism, hedonism, and excess – just random acts of destruction and chauvinism, which is interesting because our Prime Minister, our Chancellor of the Exchequer, the Mayor of London were are a part of this club.
Max Irons
So, there are lots of different reasons why people came out to protest Boris Johnson, but what they were united in was their disdain for a system which has imposed a prime minister who is deeply divisive on the rest of the electorate.
Ash Sarkar
There was a kind of madness in the country. Eamon De Valera, the prime minister, had this vision of an Ireland where we’d all be in some kind of native costume – which doesn’t exist – and we’d be dancing at the crossroads, babbling away in Gaelic, going to Mass, everyone virginal and pure.
Frank McCourt
I also had a brother who was like me a musician and a composer. A man of great talent, far more gifted than I. He died very young… he killed himself in the prime of his life.
Gustav Mahler
The India I want, I’ll never tire of repeating, is a more just and less poor India, one entirely free of foreign influences. If I thought the country was already marching toward these objectives, I’d give up politics immediately and retire as prime minister.
Indira Gandhi
It is a commitment to our children and grandchildren to preserve a statewide network of land and water resources, prime agricultural and forestry lands, and natural, historic, and recreational areas for them to enjoy.
Sonny Perdue
Why should the imagination of a man
Long past his prime remember things that are
Emblematical of love and war?
William Butler Yeats
Just smiling goes a long way toward making you feel better about life. And when you feel better about life, your life is better. With an optimistic, positive attitude toward life, the possibilities for your second prime are tremendous.
Art Linkletter
In my position as prime minister, I bear the highest responsibility for decisions.
Ehud Olmert
I’ve spoken several times with Prime Minister Erdogan about relations between Turkey and Israel. I’m pleased that, following President Obama’s visit to Israel, talks between Israel and Turkey are again taking place and hope that relations between them will further improve in the interest of both countries.
Angela Merkel
We do not truly own our thoughts or experiences until we have negotiated them with ourselvesand for this writing is the prime medium.
Carl Bereiter
I went to London in the ’70s and also visited Madame Tussauds there. At that time, the only Indian figure that was exhibited there was of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi’s.
Asha Bhosle
Prime Minister Netanyahu has, as Minister Livni knows, has been my friend for over 30 years. We drive each other crazy. But he has truly been a personal friend for well over 30 years. He acknowledged this.
Joe Biden
You know, not everybody can afford to pay $58 for prime rib or $650 for a bottle of wine. My friends and I cook for regular families who worry about feeding their kids and paying the bills.
Paula Deen
India me aap Prime Minister ko ek baar katghare me khada kar sakte hain. Par Sachin Tendulkar par ungli nahi utha Sakte.
Navjot Singh Sidhu
Jack Wilshere is a prime example of how things work. He went to Bolton and did really well, then he went back to Arsenal and really kicked on. It is something quite a few of the young boys look at and think, ‘If he can do it, so can we.’
Danny Welbeck
One does not have to agree with his views to be intrigued by the possibilities opened up by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s emergence as communicator/harangue-master in chief.
Abhijit Banerjee
I’ll be prime minister and a mum, and Clarke will be ‘first man of fishing’ and stay-at-home dad. I think it’s fair to say that this will be a wee one that a village will raise, but we couldn’t be more excited.
Jacinda Ardern
Maiden, that read’st this simple rhyme, Enjoy thy youth, it will not stay; Enjoy the fragrance of thy prime, For oh, it is not always May!
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Caught Summer is always an imagined time. Time gave it, yes, but time out of any mind. There must be prime In the heart to beget that season, to reach past rain and find Riding the palest days Its perfect blaze.
Richard Wilbur
I lost a year in my prime of my career.
Gordon Hayward
The claim made by Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor OrbГЎn that the refugee question is a German problem is incorrect. It is a European problem.
Martin Schulz
My prime interests are in evolution and development. I use the cellular slime molds as a tool to seek an understanding of those twin disciplines.
John Tyler Bonner
My first real experience of ambition was as party leader. It was my ambition for Labour to win, in which event I would be prime minister.
Neil Kinnock
I was not born to be prime minister, and I’m not going to stay here until the end of my life. I’m too young for that.
Ehud Olmert
If I was prime minister for a day the first thing I would do would be to close the border. Then we could work out how many people we’ve got here. Then you get people out who have committed crimes and you look at others who shouldn’t be here. Nobody knows how many people we’ve got here.
Noel Edmonds
It will be years – not in my time – before a woman will become Prime Minister
Margaret Thatcher
The actualising of God through the medium of the love song remains my prime motivation as an artist.
Nick Cave
The Canadian government continues to say they will not help us if we go to war with Iraq. However, the prime minister of Canada said he’d like to help, but he’s pretty sure that last time he checked, Canada had no army.
Conan O’Brien
Oh God, don’t let me go on Amazon Prime at one in the morning ’cause I always buy something I don’t need.
Rob Halford
I was like, Amazon Prime? Who has Amazon Prime? It turns out everybody.
Gaby Hoffmann
Eating breakfast revs our metabolic engines so that they’re ready for prime calorie burn all day.
Harley Pasternak
If there will be a serious Palestinian prime minister who makes a 100 percent effort to end terrorism, then we can have peace. Each side has to take steps. If terror continues, there will not be an independent Palestinian state. Israel will not accept it, if terror continues.
Ariel Sharon
It [would have] been very difficult. As I said, the rules … but if the rules were put in place back when Michael Jordan was in his prime – no hand-checking, the game was more geared toward offense, wanting to promote scoring in the game – he could have probably got close. He did score 69.
Scottie Pippen
Before I became prime minister, as mayor of Jerusalem, I became world-renowned because of my fight for the unity of Jerusalem.
Ehud Olmert
So far, I have not come to any of the positions that I have filled through wanting to be there. I was sought – people wanted me to come to those posts. I am talking about all my positions: mayor of Istanbul, chairman of the party, prime minister.
Recep Tayyip Erdogan
Women should marry when they are about eighteen years of age, and men at seven and thirty; then they are in the prime of life, and the decline in the powers of both will coincide.
I accept that it was a mistake to allow distinctions to be blurred between my professional responsibilities and my personal loyalties to a friend. Mr Speaker, I am sorry for this. I have apologised to the Prime Minister, to the public, and, at the first opportunity available, to the House.
Liam Fox
I guess the language that Justice Ginsburg used at the closing of the VMI (United States v. Virginia Military Institute) case is an important thing; it resonates with me: ‘A prime part of the history of our Constitution is the story of the extension of constitutional rights to people once ignored or excluded.’
Ted Olson
I’m always up before everybody else. I also crash at 3 o’clock when everybody’s at their prime.
Bill Hader
My headmaster chastised me with a diabolical instrument a leather strap tacked to a piece of wood but he taught me with such villainous success that I am now Prime Minister.
Robert Menzies
Businessmen are always trying to advance their business interests, but they are not running for Prime Minister.
Peter Costello
The kind of acting I used to enjoy no longer exists because your prime consideration is the budget, running time, the cost – and whether they’ll understand it in Milwaukee.
Dirk Bogarde
I hope that being in places from the [Shinzo Abe] Prime Minister’s past will motivate us to have a sincere, very practical and, I hope, productive conversation.
Vladimir Putin
Prime Minister Abe’s top-level relation-building is tremendous. I can’t do the same.
Yoshihide Suga
Some years ago there was a study to discover the most stressful occupation. It turned out not to be the head of a large business, football manager or prime minister, but rather: bus driver.
Jonathan Sacks
I call’d the devil, and he came, And with wonder his form did I closely scan; He is not ugly, and is not lame, But really a handsome and charming man. A man in the prime of life is the devil, Obliging, a man of the world, and civil; A diplomatist too, well skill’d in debate, He talks quite glibly of church and state.
Heinrich Heine
How do you trust a prime minister who said one thing before the elections and does exactly the opposite after the elections?
Kapil Sibal
Refuse to accept the narrative of history laid down by presidents, prime ministers, generals and journalists.
Robert Fisk
Since I’ve left ‘Blue Peter’ I’ve presented all sorts of different things. I’ve done a music show, for instance, and ‘Blue Peter’ had music on it. I’ve done a politics show, but on ‘Blue Peter’ I interviewed the Prime Minister. I’ve done travel stuff where I’ve gone abroad, but ‘Blue Peter’ had that within it as well.
Konnie Huq
Someday we’ll learn the whole story of why George W. Bush brushed off that intelligence briefing of Aug. 6, 2001, ‘Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S.’ But surely a big distraction was the major speech he was readying for delivery on Aug. 9, his first prime-time address to the nation.
Frank Rich
I’d really like to do a prime time series. That way I could work in the same city I live in and enjoy regular hours. Movies have taken me all over the world. And that gets tiresome very quickly.
Tawny Kitaen
The prime duty of help to the poor by the Church is not to bring temporal relief to their needs, but salvation to their souls.
Marion G. Romney
Imagination is the living power and prime agent of all human perception.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
On the same day I was sworn in as Prime Minister of Canada, I announced the most sweeping reform ever undertaken in the structure of our federal government.
Kim Campbell
In the dear dead days beyond recall, when I was in my prime as a film critic, the industry was booming. Hollywood, to give them their due, always called it the industry, through quite a few imagined it as an art form and went through several hours regularly at tiresome films in the sacred cause of art.
Patrick Kavanagh
If there were an election today, Netanyahu would win. Yet, his standing in the polls is also a reflection of the weakness of Ehud Olmert, the current prime minister – who stands at 2 percent in a recent poll – and the enduring weaknesses of the Labor Party.
Dennis A. Ross
When I started out as Prime Minister I wanted to please all the people all the time. By the end I was wondering if I pleased any of the people any of the time.
Tony Blair
No British Prime Minister should be treated with barely concealed disrespect by our allies.
Damian Green
The prime minister in Belgium gave our album to Barack Obama. I was really surprised that he decided to give a CD of us.
My mother is a tall woman – as is everyone in my family. At her prime, she stood 5 feet 9 inches, which is quite unusual for a woman born in 1922.
Judy Gold
A lot of performers don’t want to leave the circuit, the European opera house circuit, partly because most singers don’t sing many concerts, or at least not while they are in their prime.
Renee Fleming
In 1988, my mother led a nationwide election campaign, wrote a bestselling book, had her first child, and became the youngest and first female prime minister of the Muslim world. All in one year! For her detractors, this wasn’t good enough. She was unacceptable because she was a woman.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari
On the 26th of December of last year, I took office for my second term as prime minister. And it is the first time ever since then-Prime Minister Shigeru Yoshida, during the occupation period, that a prime minister is taking this position for the second time with a number of years in between.
Shinzo Abe
I don’t know anyone who thinks the SNC Lavalin mess was well handled, and it was all driven by Justin Trudeau. A smart prime minister would have realized early that the situation was unwinnable, that trying to have a prosecutor overruled was unwise in the extreme, and let it go.
Neil Macdonald
God may not play dice with the universe, but something strange is going on with the prime numbers.
Paul Erdos
It must be a conviction Government. As Prime Minister I could not waste time having internal arguments.
Margaret Thatcher
Some pacifists have carried the sound idea of the prime importance of security too far, to the point of declaring that any consideration of disarmament is superfluous and pointless as long as eternal peace has not been attained.
Ludwig Quidde
Short of being prime minister there isn’t a better job in British politics than running London.
Ken Livingstone
Well, I think women across Australia, particularly, are a bit fed up with this constant attack and belittling of women in politics, and particularly the role of a female as a prime minister.
Christine Milne
When disaster strikes, our prime objective is to save the maximum number of people. As the person heading the government, my duty is to provide all support to the flood-affected.
Pinarayi Vijayan
Proficiency in a craft is essential to every artist. Therein lies the prime source of creative imagination. Let us then create a new guild of craftsmen without the class distinctions that raise an arrogant barrier between craftsman and artist!
Walter Gropius
My great grandfather from my father’s side, Sir Akbar Hydari, was the prime minister of the Nizam of Hyderabad. He was instrumental in setting up the Osmania university. His wife set up the Hydari club for women so that they could play tennis, and she also set up the first girls’ school in Hyderabad.
Aditi Rao Hydari
Maintaining self-respect in the face of a devastating experience is of prime importance.
Ann Landers
It is a very heavy responsibility [to be a prime-minister] to make, but someone has to make it for our country and I am thrilled and honoured to have that opportunity and that responsibility.
Tony Abbott
Prime minister Manmohan Singh has put the country on global platform by adopting the right economic measures.
Zeenat Aman
I have dealt with politicians ever since I came into the government in 1971. I have seen many prime ministers, many finance ministers.
Manmohan Singh
This may sound funny, but as much as the ‘Today’ show matured me, it also was something of a cocoon. I’d been happy there. I never went into the boss’s office and pounded my fist on the desk, saying, ‘Give me more money! Give me a prime-time show!’
Jane Pauley
There’s no actual title. Except sometimes ‘wife of the prime minister,’ which, you know, we could be a little more progressive.
Sophie Gregoire Trudeau
It’s self-evident that we are going to have permanent problems with oil and gasoline and the prime resources that are needed to run the American suburbs. And we’re just not going to be able to run them. You know, it’s just unfortunate, it’s tragic, but it’s the truth.
James Howard Kunstler
I’m in my prime. There’s no goal too far, no mountain too high.
Wilma Rudolph
Give a man a fish and he’ll eat for a day. Give a man a sub-prime fish loan and you’re in business, buddy.
Stephen Colbert
The prime motivation in making almost any film is success, because film is the art form of the 20th century.
Charlton Heston
To the bottle! In infancy, the milk bottle; in our prime, the wine bottle; in our dotage, the pill bottle.
Mary Roberts Rinehart
My task, as a member of this parliament and a 30-year member of the Australian Labor Party, as its former leader, as its former foreign minister and its former prime minister, is to now throw my every effort in securing Julia Gillard’s re-election as Labor prime minister at the next election.
Kevin Rudd
The problem with prime beef is that there are so many people out there selling offal. So you don’t know when you’re going eat a shitty gangster movie. Because everybody knows there’s good stuff to be involved in.
Tom Hardy
I have been to Tokyo and several other cities, but I have never been to Yamaguchi Prefecture. I wonder what it is like, what interesting things it has to offer. I am sure that Prime Minister [ ShinzЕЌ] Abe will tell me all about it.
Vladimir Putin
Most major sports benefit from the fact that betting by the general public fuels fan interest and boosts television ratings. The Super Bowl and ‘March Madness’ are prime examples. But sports other than boxing draw a clear line where betting by participants is concerned.
Thomas Hauser
I learned…that inspiration does not come like a bolt, nor is it kinetic, energetic striving, but it comes into us slowly and quietly and all the time, though we must regularly and every day give it a little chance to start flowing, prime it with a little solitude and idleness.
Brenda Ueland
It never happens that, when we go home and open the refrigerator, we see all infinitely many prime numbers there.
…Then it said on the news, “And tonight the Prime Minister has just got to Number Ten.” I looked down at Jas and said, “Ooer.” Meaning he’d got to number ten on the snogging scale. And then we both laughed like loons. Vati just looked at us like we were mad.
Louise Rennison
Men should never be the prime focus of women’s life.
Neena Gupta
And this prime hour of fragrance is the hour so many miss upon beds of sloth, never half knowing what a beautiful, marvellous world is around them. Not all the long hours of day can possibly bring back again the charm and blessedness of this, either to the body or to the soul.
Sarah Smiley
My Dad always maintained that although Mrs. Thatcher did not look like us, she absolutely thought like us. He referred to her as the first British Asian Prime Minister. Because she shared our core values and beliefs.
Alok Sharma
It is one thing being able to contest an election and to give the people hope that I can be the next prime minister. It is a totally different situation where the people of Pakistan are told that the results are already taken and the leader of your choice is banned.
Benazir Bhutto
My old boss, former British prime minister David Cameron, thought Obama was one of the most narcissistic, self-absorbed people he’d ever dealt with.
Steve Hilton
I look back on my 20s. It’s supposed to be the prime of your life, the most vital, the most beautiful. But you’re making your critical decisions and sometimes your most critical mistakes.
Ann Brashares
It is the strength of our culture that we can have Sonia Gandhi, who is Catholic, a Sikh prime minister, and a Muslim president.
Azim Premji
What country is stabler than Iran? Where else in the world would an assassinated prime minister be so quickly replaced?
Ruhollah Khomeini
We threw passes enough that we were prime to catch them and get up to speed. I think we will be fine there.
Les Miles
For poetry, he’s past his prime,
He takes an hour to find a rhyme;
His fire is out, his wit decayed,
His fancy sunk, his muse a jade.
I’d have him throw away his pen,
But there’s no talking to some men.
Jonathan Swift
We have a lot of American TV in Australia. I grew up watching ‘Seinfeld,’ ‘The Simpsons’ and those prime time TV shows over the years that feature grown-ups and high school kids. We had a saturation of American voices.
Sarah Snook
Weekend planning is a prime time to apply the Deathbed Priority Test: On your deathbed, will you wish you’d spent more prime weekend hours grocery shopping or walking in the woods with your kids?
Hal Borland
Prime Minister Modi [Narendra] is strong enough, and he’s accomplished much.
Jamie Dimon
Mathematicians have tried in vain to this day to discover some order in the sequence of prime numbers, and we have reason to believe that it is a mystery into which the human mind will never penetrate.
Leonhard Euler
I think the prime reason for existence, for living in this world is discovery.
James Dean
My mum made me feel if I wanted to become prime minister, I could do it.
Hannah Ware
Friends are an aid to the young, to guard them from error; to the elderly, to attend to their wants and to supplement their failing power of action; to those in the prime of life, to assist them to noble deeds.
The the relationship between the prime minister and the monarch is very much a personal one and when it comes to the constitution of the Order of Australia, which is headed by the monarch, this is governed by letters patent, which are a matter between the prime minister and the monarch.
Tony Abbott
Whoever the next prime minister of this country will be, it will be a female prime minister and a female prime minister who has formidable skills and I know whichever one of the two wins they will lead this country well.
Michael Gove
… dissatisfaction with one’s self and dissatisfaction with the world – is necessary – it is one of the prime things that keeps the artist going on – that drives him – happiness, as such, must come in between times, as best it can.
Clarence John Laughlin
Aristotle uses a mother’s love for her child as the prime example of love or friendship.
Mortimer Adler
The Chinese go around with lollipops in their pockets. They have aid. They have friendship deals. They build you a Prime Minister’s office or President’s office or Parliament House or Foreign Ministry. For them, trade is an extension of their foreign policy.
Lee Hsien Loong
If I would’ve fought Andre Ward in my prime, I would’ve beat him.
Joe Calzaghe
A prime minister has to keep a certain balance when dealing with sensitive issues.
Ehud Olmert
Your mind now, moldering like wedding-cake, heavy with useless experience, rich with suspicion, rumour, fantasy, crumbling to pieces under the knife-edge of mere fact. In the prime of your life.
Adrienne Rich
I once had an extraordinary experience with former prime minister Ted Heath. Both of his eyes, including the whites, turned jet black and I seemed to be looking into two black holes.
David Icke
I’m quite sure that, had Twitter been of an age when my grandfather was prime minister, I’m sure they would have used it. He was a brilliant and gifted communicator.
Nicholas Soames
Barbara Castle should have been Labour’s – and Britain’s – first female prime minister. What a role model she would have been: passionate, fiery, and absolutely committed to social justice.
Patricia Hewitt
The Japanese Prime Minister has apologized for Japan’s part in World War II. However, he still hasn’t mentioned anything about karaoke.
David Letterman
It is our job to work for the government of the day and so that means working for Gordon Brown as Prime Minister, and we need to do those preparations just to be sure that we’re ready for whoever you, the British public, elect and that’s core to our civil service values over the last 150 years.
Gus O’Donnell
Barriers are continually being made out of… new values which have overturned the barriers of the past. Thus one sees that it is not basically the new value that is of prime importance, but rather the spirit that is revealed in this value, as well as the freedom necessary for this revelation.
Wassily Kandinsky
When we have a Deputy Prime Minister who tells people not to drive cars but has two Jags himself, and where the Minister who tells people not to have two homes turns out to have nine himself – no wonder the public believe politicians are hypocrites.
William Hague
How many there are … who imagine that because Jesus paid it all, they need pay nothing, forgetting that the prime object of their salvation was that they should follow in the footsteps of Jesus Christ in bringing back a lost world to God.
Lottie Moon
I don’t work hard enough. If I had worked harder I might have been prime minister.
Ken Livingstone
People still laugh at me in politics, they think I won’t make it; but I think I will, after Harold Wilson, I will be your next Chancellor to become Prime Minister.
Imran Khan
New York is the biggest mouth in the world. It appears to be prime example of the herd instinct, leading the universal urban conspiracy to beguile man from his birthright (the good ground), to hang him by his eyebrows from skyhooks above hard pavement, to crucify him, sell him, or be sold by him.
Frank Lloyd Wright
Mr. President, prime ministers, let us have ambitions: ambitions to move beyond the violence and occupation, to the day when two states, Palestine and Israel, can live together side by side in peace and security.
Abdallah II
You have made a very good point: both the Prime Minister [Shindzo Abe] and I enjoy a fairly high level of trust among the citizens of our countries.
Vladimir Putin
Without Police Woman I wouldn’t have had a career. The show started about the same time the women’s movement was taking off. Ours was the first prime-time one-hour show featuring a strong, professional woman. It paved the way for other series to follow.
Angie Dickinson
I didn’t think I would be prime minister, because I didn’t consider it. But that’s the power of saying yes, because there will be a moment when someone asks you to do something beyond your comfort zone. I am not unique.
Jacinda Ardern
Can you imagine the Mail on Sunday asking the weight of the prime minister, George Osborne or any other leading politician? I just think it’s unbelievable that in the 21st century women still get asked such very, very different questions from men.
Liz Kendall
I’m a big fan of Israel and frankly a strong prime minister is a strong Israel
Donald Trump
I once had an extraordinary experience with former prime minister Ted Heath. Both of his eyes, including the whites, turned jet black, and I seemed to be looking into two black holes.
David Icke
You see, before I became prime minister, the Australian prime minister only attended ever two meetings in the world: the British Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting and the South Pacific Forum.
Paul Keating
We avoided injuries that season. It was our fourth year with Vince, so we all knew just what he wanted. And a lot of our core guys were in their prime. It was an incredible season.
Bart Starr
I can stand here today, leader of the Labour Party, Prime Minister, and say to the British people: you have never had it so … prudent.
Tony Blair
However, the 1956 agreement refers to two islands while the Prime Minister [Shindzo Abe] is talking about four islands.
Vladimir Putin
I turned down ‘The Prime of Miss Jean Brody’ with Maggie Smith. I think she got the Academy Award.
Julie Andrews
Seeing yourself as responsible for the quality of your relationship, as a prime mover in your life, I think is a bold, amazing step.
Sharon Olds
In an information society, education is no mere amenity; it is the prime tool for growing people and profits.
John Naisbitt
In 2004, President Bush gave Prime Minister Sharon certain guarantees about American policy, but the Obama administration treated those as a kind of private letter having no binding policy impact.
Elliott Abrams
Land is becoming a diminishing resource for agriculture, in spite of a growing understanding that the future of food security will depend upon the sustainable management of land resources as well as the conservation of prime farmland for agriculture.
M. S. Swaminathan
No prime minister, no government can expect to be unanswerable or unchallenged.
Gina Miller
I would like to sound like James Mason. I reckon if I’d had a better voice I could have been prime minister. It is the most irritating voice in public life.
Ken Livingstone
Nature never uses prime numbers. But mathematicians do.
Frank Drake
Political risk is hard to manage because so much comes down to the personal choices of policymakers, whether prime ministers or heads of central banks.
James Surowiecki
I do not believe in excuses. I believe in hard work as the prime solvent of life’s problems.
James Cash Penney
In Yugoslavia, I’d asked for additional forces too. I even went to meet the French prime minister, and I proposed additional forces… Nobody wanted to send troops.
Boutros Boutros-Ghali
This was absolutely an attack on [British Prime Minister] Tony Blair, principally, and the perspective which is really predominant in Europe right now that he’s not questioning enough of Mr. Bush’s policies.
George Michael
The existence of a prime mover- nothing can move itself; there must be a first mover. The first mover is called God.
Thomas Aquinas
Political extremism involves two prime ingredients: an excessively simple diagnosis of the world’s ills, and a conviction that there are identifiable villains back of it all.
John W. Gardner
By downplaying clear targets and frameworks, … the Prime Minister is ignoring calls from UK companies who want a clear framework to operate within now. There has been a lot of discussion about the false choice between targets and technologies, but the reality is that without both we cannot achieve either.
Tony Juniper
Transparency is the hallmark of Prime Minister Modi’s government.
Piyush Goyal
And writers say, as the most forward bud
Is eaten by the canker ere it blow,
Even so by love the young and tender wit
Is turn’d to folly, blasting in the bud,
Losing his verdure even in the prime,
And all the fair effects of future hopes.
William Shakespeare
Meryl Streep, despite not being a Prime Minister, is reasonably convincing in ‘The Iron Lady.’
Sasha Frere-Jones
Inspiration comes to us slowly and quietly . prime it with a little solitude.
Brenda Ueland
Some people find it difficult to argue with a woman Prime Minister and shrivel up.
Douglas Hurd
Devastation could arise insidiously, rather than suddenly, through unsustainable pressure on energy supplies, food, water and other natural resources. Indeed, these pressures are the prime ‘threats without enemies’ that confront us.
Martin Rees
People in the street will either call me ‘Prime Minister’ or ‘Justin.’ We’ll see how that goes. But when I’m working, when I’m with my staff in public, I’m ‘Prime Minister.’ I say that if we’re drinking beer out of a bottle, and you can see my tattoos, you should be comfortable calling me ‘Justin.’
Justin Trudeau
On Sundays, at the matin-chime, The Alpine peasants, two and three, Climb up here to pray; Burghers and dames, at summer’s prime, Ride out to church from Chamberry, Dight with mantles gay, But else it is a lonely time Round the Church of Brou.
Matthew Arnold
Prime Minister Jan Dhan Yojana is a reflection of how rich India’s poor are at heart. Without any obligation to put any money in the 0 balance accounts, they didn’t open an empty account.
Narendra Modi
University characters are prime for parody, you know – the self-entitled rich kids to the self-important protestors to the international students.
Ronny Chieng
Love the family! Defend and promote it as the basic cell of human
society; nurture it as the prime sanctuary of life. Give great care to the
preparation of engaged couples and be close to young married couples, so
that they will be for their children and the whole community an eloquent
testimony of God’s love.
Pope John Paul II
There are two Gods, there is the God that people generally believe in – a God who has to serve them. This God does not exist. But the God whom people forget – the God whom we all have to serve – exists, and is the prime cause of our existence and of all that we perceive.
Leo Tolstoy
Do you know what prepares you for the mental hospital? Being a prime minister’s wife.
Margaret Trudeau
I played Margaret Thatcher, John Major, Tony Blair, David Cameron – four Prime Ministers. If Rishi Sunak became Prime Minister I would find it difficult that I would not be allowed to play him because of the colour of his skin.
Harry Enfield
I’m a very happy, content member of David Cameron’s team. I fought very hard to get my friend elected as leader of the Conservative party, then elected as the prime minister of this country, and I’m very happy being part of that team that is bringing change to this country.
George Osborne
I’ve got an opportunity that not many people have – to be the leader of Team Sky as I enter the prime years of my career.
Bradley Wiggins
Had I done the movies that were offered to me in my prime, at the height of my career, I would have been alongside the likes of Denzel Washington. But, I chose not to do those movies.
Edward James Olmos
Knowledge is the prime need of the hour.
Mary McLeod Bethune
I am a son of my nation. It does not matter whether I am prime minister, a soldier, or a policeman. The main thing is to be useful to the people, that I can look into people’s eyes, and that people see that there are real benefits from my activities.
Ramzan Kadyrov
I’m 30. I’m about to hit my prime now. I need to act and keep building.
Dillian Whyte
Mr. Churchill, Mr. Prime Minister, how many divisions did you say that the pope had?
Joseph Stalin
What you don’t want to do is to hang on to the aging superstar past his prime and take resources away you can otherwise use to build a better overall team.
Tom Hicks
Religion is extremely important in this democracy – so important that it occupies a prime position in the Bill of Rights.
Mario Cuomo
I believe that I am past my prime. I had reckoned on my prime lasting till I was at least fifty.
Maggie Smith
The list of erratic actions from Mohammed bin Salman is long: the jailing of royal family members, the detention of the Lebanese prime minister, a nonsensical feud with Qatar, the growing internal repression of political speech, and the disastrous war in Yemen.
Chris Murphy
Nike is the prime shoe sponsor in sports in general but definitely in skateboarding. I couldn’t think of a better company I’d rather ride for. I’ve always thought they were such an amazing team. They’ve always had the best gears on their team; their product is insanely good.
Nyjah Huston
Communication is the conduit of leadership from the Prime Minister down to the leading hand of a small group of council workers fixing the roads. Leadership uncommunicated is leadership unrequited!
Peter Cosgrove
The prime goal of an author is the same as a musician, which is to emotionally connect with the reader in some way or another.
Ken Hill
When a Cabinet Minister who is sacked for telling lies is re-appointed, in the face of every constitutional convention, only for the same man to be sacked again from the same Cabinet for the same offence by the same Prime Minister В– no wonder the public are cynical about politics.
William Hague
The new prime minister, Malcolm Turnbull, while a vast improvement on his predecessor is not doing much, if anything, to slow that process done.
Justine Larbalestier
There is a heated debate in Turkey these days over whether the government of Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan is furthering democracy or rolling it back.
Mustafa Akyol
If I’m the British prime minister I won’t be dictated to on the timetable or the manner of the negotiations.
Michael Gove
A man’s prime interest in life must be his work.
Laurence Olivier
I wish to strengthen the hand of the Prime Minister and the heads of the security agencies in the unrelenting battle for our right to maintain normal daily life in every place in Israel.
Reuven Rivlin
Amigo! Amigo!” (Calling out to the ITALLIAN Prime minister….)
George W. Bush
No, I am not pregnant. I am fat. And, as the Prime Minister, its my right to be fat if I want to.
Benazir Bhutto
By definition, as a Prime Minister I cannot be a liar.
Silvio Berlusconi
Forty to 60 I would say is your prime. That’s when you know the most, you’ve seen the most, you understand the most, and you still have some physical energy.
Jerry Seinfeld
I’d rather rule the world now than be prime minister.
Poppy Delevingne
My claim has always been that defeatism pervaded the conservative parties in the 1930s and that it was the defining characteristic of Menzies and his first period as prime minister.
Paul Keating
The difference between the good players and the great is how long they stay in their prime.
Cris Carter
Monday Night Football started in 1970, and when it started, it was something extremely special because sports had not been aired in prime time. So, it was a novelty, and a lot of people thought it wouldn’t work, and, of course, it worked spectacularly well.
Al Michaels
In my experience, not all women want to run the world. Not all women want to run a big banking conglomerate. Not all women want to be prime minister. What a lot of women want is a good career that respects them… and high-quality, affordable childcare.
Karren Brady
Looking back now, I realise why, as prime minister of Malaysia, I was described as a dictator. There were many things I did which were typically dictatorial.
Mahathir Mohamad
Like every living thing its prime characteristic is a blind, unreasoned instinct to survive.
Robert A. Heinlein
Two years ago, Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon described the Gaza Strip settlement of Netzarim as a vital part of Israel’s national security and now he is going to leave. That is because of the ‘effective armed struggle’.
Zuheir Mohsen
They started doing it in reality TV, where writers don’t have union protections and are easy marks for getting this kind of material in there. You’re less likely to find it on network prime-time series, but the creep is moving in that direction. It has become intrusive and overwhelming to us as a union of writers.
Patric Verrone
I was in relationship with a guy who was much older than me – either he was past his prime and I was coming into mine. There was nothing I could do to keep his attention.
Deana Carter
For Stevie, the words are of prime importance; the song moves around the words, rather than the words moving around the song.
Christine McVie
It would be easy to assume that the open letter is a symptom of the Internet age. Such is not the case. In 1774, Benjamin Franklin wrote an open letter to the prime minister of Great Britain, Lord North – a satirical call for the imposition of martial law in the colonies.
Roxane Gay
Here’s what set MTV apart from places like ABC News and other bastions of liberal news dissemination: we had a prime demographic, a twenty-four-hour cycle, and an aura that simply could not be manufactured, bought, or faked by the major networks.
Lisa Kennedy Montgomery
I don’t think there will be a woman Prime Minister in my lifetime.
Margaret Thatcher
Instead of a president who boycotts Prime Minister Netanyahu, imagine a president who stands unapologetically with the nation of Israel.
Ted Cruz
Fattier, expensive cuts like prime rib or New York strip are celebratory centerpieces that do best when simply roasted with salt and pepper and served straight away.
J. Kenji Lopez-Alt
In a prime-time address, President Bush said he backed limited federal funding for stem cell research. That’s right, the President said, this is a quote, the research could help cure brain diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and whatever it is I have.
Conan O’Brien
I think there’s a lot of moms who just aren’t feeling protected. And that’s one of the prime purposes of the federal government, is the security of our nation.
Kathy Szeliga
The prime reason behind making ‘A Flying Jatt’ was that there are barely any ‘desi’ superhero films in Bollywood which Indians can relate to. I wanted to exhibit that a superhero is more than just superpowers and leads a normal life like the others do. I wanted to attach a human factor to a superhero.
Remo D’Souza
3 is a prime, 5 is a prime, 7 is a prime, 9 is the next prime after 8.
Charlie Chaplin
I’m 81 and I’m in the prime of my life.
Rita Moreno
When I became Prime Minister, I looked back on what was done before – what were the policies and actions before – and I thought that I need to be critical if I’m going to do anything at all.
Mahathir Mohamad
My initial thoughts about what a title can do was to set mood and the prime underlying core of the film’s story, to express the story in some metaphorical way. I saw the title as a way of conditioning the audience, so that when the film actually began, viewers would already have an emotional resonance with it.
Saul Bass
Now the summer’s in prime Wi’ the flowers richly blooming, And the wild mountain thyme A’ the moorlands perfuming. To own dear native scenes Let us journey together, Where glad innocence reigns ‘Mang the braes o’ Balquhither.
Robert Tannahill
In Pierre Trudeau, Canada has finally produced a Prime Minister worthy of assassination.
John Diefenbaker
Every day is a good day to examine our prime-time priorities.
William Arthur Ward
It is the lone worker who makes the first advance in a subject; the details may be worked out by a team, but the prime idea is due to enterprise, thought, and perception of an individual.
Alexander Fleming
I will do what the Prime Minister asks me to do; that is my consistent approach to politics and to service.
Des Browne
We dream of an India where development is the result of all Chief Ministers, the Prime Minister, state Ministers, Union Ministers working together with even Local Body Authorities as one team, a strong and united Team India.
Narendra Modi
3 is prime, 5 is prime, 7 is prime, 9 is an unfortunate mistake of the devil. But if it repents, it will be saved!
Billy Graham
I have led an unusual life. I have buried a father killed at age 50 and two brothers killed in the prime of their lives. I raised my children as a single mother when my husband was arrested and held for eight years without a conviction – a hostage to my political career.
Benazir Bhutto
I was really quite geeky at school. At one point, I wanted to be prime minister or a mathematician.
Bel Powley
I was pretty young when my father was prime minister, so it wasn’t really a big part of my life. My folks were away a lot, meeting foreign dignitaries and that sort of thing, but it never struck me as odd. If anything it allowed me to get into all sorts of mischief.
Julian McMahon
Of course the playing is important but writing and the establishing of what you are going for is prime too.
Andy Summers
The Prime Minister [ShinzЕЌ Abe] also highlighted the need to address general humanitarian issues. We already mentioned one of these issues: visa-free travel by Japanese citizens to the South Kuril Islands.
Vladimir Putin
The first-cause and prime-mover argument, brilliantly proffered by St. Thomas Aquinas in the fourteenth century (and brilliantly refuted by David Hume in the eighteenth century), is easily turned aside with just one more question: Who or what caused and moved God?
Michael Shermer
I want to make one thing clear: I am proud to be a citizen of a country in which a prime minister can be investigated like any other citizen.
Ehud Olmert
I liken all jobs to decorating. If you don’t do the preparation, sand down and prime first, you won’t get a good paint job, and that’s the same as everything in life.
Sean Lock
I don’t think I have suffered for want of being a Cabinet minister. I don’t have a Cabinet minister to whom I report. I report directly to the Prime Minister.
Nirmala Sitharaman
Prime Minister [ShinzЕЌ Abe] and I have spoken a lot, and we said all the right things, in my opinion, about creating an atmosphere of trust and friendship between our nations and peoples.
Vladimir Putin
It was a Labour prime minister who appointed the first black male and female cabinet ministers.
Chuka Umunna
Systems, scientific or philosophic, come and go. Each method of limited understanding is at length exhausted. In its prime each system is a triumphant success: in its decay it is an obstructive nuisance.
Alfred North Whitehead
The Prime Minister [Shindzo Abe] and I will negotiate proceeding from our national interests: the interests of Russia and the interests of Japan. We should find a compromise.
Vladimir Putin
When a Cabinet Minister who is sacked for telling lies is re-appointed, in the face of every constitutional convention, only for the same man to be sacked again from the same Cabinet for the same offence by the same Prime Minister no wonder the public are cynical about politics.
William Hague
I may not worry as much as Prime Minister Eshkol does about Israel, but I worry as deeply.
Lyndon B. Johnson
In September 1993, President Clinton presided over a handshake between Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and Palestine Liberation Organization Chairman Yasser Arafat on the White House lawn – the climax of a ‘day of awe,’ as the press described it.
Noam Chomsky
The major parties could conduct live human sacrifices on their podiums during prime time, and I doubt that anybody would notice.
Dave Barry
On June 27, 1988, a 21-year-old Mike Tyson made in excess of 21 million dollars for 91 seconds of work. It took him just over 14 seconds to pull in more money than Michael Jordan, in his prime, made for an entire season of work that year.
Brin-Jonathan Butler
Every eye is an eye, when you’re doing the surgery there that is just as important as if you were doing eye surgery on the prime minster or the king.
Fred Hollows
It’s the Tiger Woods effect. What he was able to accomplish at such a young age – he drew me to the game, and I can only speak for myself, but a lot of the players that are my age saw Tiger in his prime when we were all teenagers. We all wanted to be like him.
Tony Finau
Prime Minister Singh is to be commended for beginning the process of transforming India into a global economic power by initiating economic liberalization in the early 1990s.
Henry Paulson
Can a Congress worker ever think of becoming a Prime Minister? No. Because that seat is reserved by birth in that party.
Amit Shah
My father was prime minister, and to take care of his home, to be his hostess, automatically meant to have my hands in politics – to meet people, to know their games, their secrets.
Indira Gandhi
Tony Blair is one of the most significant world leaders of the modern era. He has a remarkable story to tell. His tenure as prime minister was marked by close relationships with Presidents Clinton and George W. Bush, and he enjoys a profile in this country that is rare among foreign leaders.
Sonny Mehta
I grew up with a lot of people whose whole prime mover was dad rage. I never really had it – it always seemed so empty. It always seemed to be masking something else, which was really their own lack of initiative.
Robert Downey, Jr.
It is the fear of middle-age in the young, of old-age in the middle-aged, which is the prime cause of infidelity, that infallible rejuvenator.
Cyril Connolly
It would have been so awesome to be born in the Thirties and be in your prime in the Fifties. Except for the whole being black thing, obviously!
Andra Day
In the Einstein way, I can’t believe in a universe that doesn’t have some sort of prime mover, identical with all of created nature. I have a whole lot of a harder time with supposing the fine print of the Torah was a direct revelation.
Simon Schama
Declare war on passivity. Hush the inner voice that insists you’re over the hill, past your prime, unworthy of attaining those dreams. Disbelief is now the enemy, as is the notion of settling. Get hungry- hyena hungry. Get fired up. Find your backbone, and your wings. Flap ’em. It’s the only way you’ll be able to fly.
J. C. Hutchins
Once, when a British Prime Minister sneezed, men half a world away would blow their noses. Now when a British Prime Minister sneezes nobody else will even say ‘Bless You’.
Bernard Levin
I readily concede that a prime minister is not required to speak on every occasion or on every subject, but when there is a duty to speak, silence is unacceptable. Silence can be a strategy, silence can be a tactic, but silence can never be an answer to the ills of our polity and the fault lines of our society.
P. Chidambaram
We grew up quickly, surrounded by guys eighteen and older, in their prime. They lived to surf, drink, raise hell and score heavily with women. I saw these guys going up and down the coast on surf trips, drinking and bagging girls, and all I could think of was ‘What a neat life!’
Greg Noll
I get so used to working with writers that my prime occupation is development.
Ridley Scott
We are committed to the development of friendship and good neighbourly relations with Pakistan. I believe that Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto shares this commitment.
Rajiv Gandhi
I believe that it is my responsibility as the prime minister of Israel to do whatever can be done to exploit the unique opportunities that lie ahead of us to move towards peace. Not everything can be done by one act.
Yitzhak Rabin
In the sense that you’re not at the centre of power, like a president or prime minister of a major power, everyone is marginalised; my position doesn’t isn’t unique in that respect. I think there are different sorts of relevance in different contexts.
Peter Singer
It’s only under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s leadership that the country can foresee a bright future.
Nirmala Sitharaman
Much to my surprise, not a moment have I been made to feel, ‘Alright, a woman – probably the prime minister wanted to make a token gesture.’ The ease with which people have taken this thought of a woman minister has been a great strength for me and has made my job far easier.
Nirmala Sitharaman
There have been systems of religion where the mother is the prime parent, the source, and she’s really a more immediate parent than the father, because one is born from the mother…so that the image of the woman is the image of the world.
Joseph Campbell
I think the Prime Minister is the first to acknowledge that Malaysia’s still got some work to do. Just like the United States, by the way, has some work to do on these issues. Human Rights Watch probably has a list of things they think we should be doing as a government.
Barack Obama
No British Prime Minister of the last seventy years has been more harshly stereotyped than Stanley Baldwin. No one has been so much ignored, after the initial judgements of contemporaries had been made.
Stanley Baldwin
Prime Minister Benjamin Netyanahu made it real clear. They’re willing to be generous on some other concessions but not on the border issue. And I don’t blame him.
Herman Cain
Margaret Thatcher was beyond argument a great Prime Minister. Her tragedy is that she may be remembered less for the brilliance of her many achievements than for the recklessness with which she later sought to impose her own increasingly uncompromising views.
Geoffrey Howe
Twenty-three is said to be the prime of life by those who have reached so far and no farther. It shares this distinction with every age, from ten to three-score and ten.
Stella Benson
If a prime minister can suspend parliament to deliver a ‘no deal’ Brexit, what will the government try to do next with no democratic scrutiny or oversight?
Caroline Lucas
Turkey is not an enemy of Israel. I have worked closely with the Turkish prime minister, Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
Ehud Olmert
Faith in reason as a prime motor is no longer the criterion of the sound mind, any more than faith in the Bible is the criterion of righteous intention.
George Bernard Shaw
Tony Blair was a good politician but not a good Prime Minister, and that’s what we don’t want to be. We don’t want to be just people who are good at winning elections: we want to be good at governing. I think we benefit from having seen the mistakes that we think Tony Blair made in 1997.
George Osborne
Besides being a prime cause of poor economic growth, poor governance breeds corruption, which cripples investment, wastes resources, and diminishes confidence.
Ahmed Zewail
At home, Danes try to resolve their problems amicably so it’s just surreal to see these violent pictures on TV. But as the prime minister, I can’t be controlled by my emotions.
Anders Fogh Rasmussen
ADHD is a prime example of a fictitious disease.
Leon Eisenberg
I would be a disaster as a prime minister.
V. P. Singh
As the Prime Minister of India, Modiji is as much responsible for the welfare of Punjab as I am and his political affiliations are really not material when it comes to the betterment of any State or its people, including Punjab.
Amarinder Singh
I saw Len Hutton in his prime, Another time, another time.
Harold Pinter
It is a sad day for football when a player about to enter his prime moves for financial reasons and nothing else.
Jamie Carragher
We don’t stop talking about how the world might be better just because we have no chance of making it to Prime Minister. We are all politicians. We are all artists. In an open society everything the mind and hands can achieve is our birthright. It is up to us to claim it.
Stephen Fry
I don’t think it’s the role of the prime minister to court the press.
John Major
When I was three, I wanted to be four. When I was four, I wanted to be prime minister.
Jeffrey Archer
Being a prime minister is a very demanding job. And as long as I have the strength, I will continue to do this and be of benefit to my country.
Dmitry Medvedev
It’s often the case with successful TV shows that they kind of inadvertently live on past their prime. It’s best to leave the audience wanting more.
Vince Gilligan
Now it’s me & my time, it’s just me in my prime
Nicki Minaj
We expect to be a prime in the fighter jet business for the long run. This is not a business we’re getting out of at all.
Dennis Muilenburg
The reason we didn’t acquire WCW is an incoming, rotating door, new head of Turner at that time, took prime time television literally out of the deal that we had already negotiated. Once that happened, there was no way to make any sense of it. It was really just a video library and some ring mats.
Eric Bischoff
Today is indeed an historic occasion when as a first chair-in-office woman I hand over to another woman chair in office, your Prime Minister, Julia Gillard, in the presence of a woman head of the Commonwealth, Her Royal Highness, Her Majesty the Queen of England.
Kamla Persad-Bissessar
My colleagues and I met with Prime Minister Netanyahu and other Israeli military and security officials to discuss our votes against the terrible Iran deal and to reaffirm our commitment to our longstanding alliance.
Scott Garrett
If the Queen can reject the advice of a minister on a little thing like a postage stamp, what would happen if she rejected the advice of the Prime Minister on a major matter? If the Crown personally can reject advice, then, of course, the whole democratic facade turns out to be false
Tony Benn
I’m a mom. I’m the wife of a Prime Minister. I’m Sophie. So yes, I try to express with integrity who I am through what I’m wearing.
Sophie Gregoire Trudeau
Nobody is above the law. Imagine if there allegations against Modi and he is the Prime Minister. Should the case not be pursued just because he has become the PM. It should not be so that it should be stopped. I am not above the law.
Narendra Modi
In the last five years I used to go to Zen practice once a month, but since I assumed the post of prime minister it’s been much harder.
Shinzo Abe
Science and psychology have isolated the one prime cause for success or failure in life. It is the hidden self-image you have of yourself.
Bob Proctor
Stephen Harper, who’s the prime minister of Canada, he is saying that this – we have to give him a majority government, otherwise there will be a Separatist coalition. And he says it every minute.
Rick Mercer
I am absolutely sure to be the most democratic man to ever become Prime Minister in Italy.
Silvio Berlusconi
For me, justice is the prime condition of humanity.
Wole Soyinka
In politics, there are different categories of friendship. My friendship with Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, for example .
Jean-Claude Juncker
Outside of my family, the prime concern of my life has been nature and its order, and how we have been savagely altering that order.
James Cagney
In my view it is better for the Labour Party, the leadership and the new prime minister that he be given the maximum flexibility.
John Richard Reid
The prime minister says he has a vision for change, well put that to the people of the country.
David Cameron
If I were in the government, I would persuade the prime minister to see the beauty in the fact that people see Israel as a haven – from their sadness to their hope.
Elie Wiesel
Every cabinet minister gets a mission statement from the Prime Minister.
Brian Mulroney
No one can keep his griefs in their prime; they use themselves up.
Emile M. Cioran
I did not do a romantic role in the prime of my youth.
Raza Murad
The strength of the British constitution is supposedly its ability, because it is unwritten in key respects like the incapacity of the prime minister, to adapt to crises with flexibility and urgency.
Andrew Adonis, Baron Adonis
If Creation were a crime, would not God be the prime suspect?
Robert Breault
Mr Brown is a politician of exceptional experience and ability, and I am sure he will discharge the office of Prime Minister with distinction
Bertie Ahern
Good-fellowship, unflagging, is the prime requisite for success in our society, and the man or woman who smiles only for reasons of humor or pleasure is a deviate.
Marya Mannes
Most people, when they think about going into medicine, they think they have to give up their lives, and I was the prime example that you didn’t need to do that.
Mikhail Varshavski
Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can’t help them, at least don’t hurt them.
Dalai Lama
I kind of modeled Optimus Prime’s voice out of many people I had known over the years, my family especially.
Peter Cullen
This past year has been very turbulent for the Middle East, and my conversation with Prime Minister Netanyahu strengthened my belief that we need to remain vigilant in our support of our critical ally.
Rob Portman
It was a mistake. I was wrong, but I discovered this many years later. I was acting on the basis of this mandate given me by the most important leaders of the world: President Bush’s father, prime minister of France, President Mitterand, the Chinese, everybody.
Boutros Boutros-Ghali
Correctness is clearly the prime quality. If a system does not do what it is supposed to do, then everything else about it matters little.
Bertrand Meyer
I thought I could do something different from any Conservative prime minister before me. But I couldn’t.
John Major
Men and women of western Sydney, it’s appropriate, you apparently believe, that Australia’s oldest surviving Prime Minister should make the concluding remarks in Australia’s oldest surviving Government House. I hope the building’s foundations are a bit more substantial than mine.
Gough Whitlam
I think that as I had children, I have five sons, and they got into video games and were the prime ages through the development of video games. It was so much fun seeing them play the games and seeing it through their eyes.
John Lasseter
Since the Moi era, or ‘error’ as I call it, prime jobs have been stuffed with semi-literate Kalenjin herdsmen. I imagined that Mwai Kibaki would correct this but in fact he maintained many of them, and those he sent home were replaced by his kleptocratic tribesmen.
Raila Odinga
Prime Minister Najib had continuously denounced me as an enemy of the Malaysian state and accused me of spreading Fake News.
Clare Rewcastle Brown
We differ with the Israeli Government about a number of things, and they know that. In the past, I have discussed with Prime Minister [Ariel] Sharon these issues. The fact that we differ about something or the other shouldn’t be a matter of strain.
Thabo Mbeki
There is an honourable tradition in British public life that those charged with authority at the top of an organisation should accept responsibility for what happens in that organisation. I am therefore writing to the prime minister today to tender my resignation as chairman of the BBC.
Gavyn Davies
You cannot think of Margaret without Denis. There comes a time when every Prime Minister needs someone to give him or her the unvarnished truth, and, in Denis, Margaret had just that.
John Major
In the end we are all sacked and it’s always awful. It is as inevitable as death following life. If you are elevated there comes a day when you are demoted. Even Prime Ministers.
Alan Clark
I have found myself under a wave of investigation and criticism from the moment I was elected. Since my first days in the Prime Minister’s Office I have had to fight against evil attacks while I have been busy making decisions on crucial matters related to Israel’s security and existence.
Ehud Olmert
Every day, the Prime Minister is a 24-hour servant of the people of India.
Manmohan Singh
The Germans could not get over the perfidy of it. It was unbelievable that the English, having degenerated to the stage where suffragettes heckled the Prime Minister and defied the police, were going to fight.
Barbara Tuchman
It sounds so weird, but I’m totally pro-aging. If you look at the film industry, it’s so funny how it’s so much more accepted that actors begin their prime in their forties or fifties, and for women it’s so different. I think it’s time to change that. Aging is a beautiful thing.
Michiel Huisman
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi turned the narrative around on demonetisation very quickly by promoting the move as one way of ending systemic corruption in the country.
Arundhati Bhattacharya
I literally touched down in Kosovo and the president, prime minister and mayor were waiting for me to get off the plane. Apparently that’s unheard of. They don’t wait for nobody.
Rita Ora
BLT Prime at Trump National Doral is essential after a long day on the golf course. The popover bread alone is enough to keep me coming back!
Ivanka Trump
In Jordan, where the prime minister is always a commoner, the king has announced some new reforms that would tend to move the country toward a more democratic system: Notably, the prime minister would emerge from the victorious political party, not from back room conversations in the royal palace.
Elliott Abrams
I’m inspired by the example of Prime Minister Abe, who overcame many challenges after his first term as prime minister to successfully return to the highest office in Japan six years later, and is now hopefully leading Japan in an extremely promising direction.
John Roos
It is not the young man who should be considered fortunate but the old man who has lived well, because the young man in his prime wanders much by chance, vacillating in his beliefs, while the old man has docked in the harbor, having safeguarded his true happiness.
We would never accept a prime minister saying, ‘Well, maybe I’ll intervene and use a trade issue as a link to an independent investigation into criminal activity.’
Andrew Scheer
In 1975,Bob Dylan was almost 10 years past his prime – and then he released the best album of his career, Blood on the Tracks. Written and recorded amid a painful divorce, Blood on the Tracks is proof that heartbreak makes great art – just as many of the albums that followed were the opposite.
Bob Dylan
I’d dress like RuPaul if I was prime minister. I’d have a lace front, waist cincher. I’d have padding on my hips. I’d be ruling the country in style.
Jade Thirlwall
Over the last few years, the Islamic world has produced more female presidents and prime ministers than both Europe and North America combined.
Reza Aslan
High fashion has the shelf life of potato salad. And when past its prime, it is similarly deadly.
Barbara Kingsolver
To be prime minister, you need to fight many entities, you need to be very determined. It’s not going to fall in your lap.
Ayelet Shaked
I’m an opposition leader. But Mr Modi is also my prime minister. Mr Modi has certain skills. He’s a very good communicator.
Rahul Gandhi
Discipline in typography is a prime virtue. Individuality must be secured by means that are rational. Distinction needs to be won by simplicity and restraint. It is equally true that these qualities need to be infused wiht a certain spirit and vitality, or they degenerate into dullness and mediocrity.
Stanley Morison
I think our nation’s at war with radical Islam. The primary goal of these groups is to attack our nation. Washington’s a prime target.
Lindsey Graham
The war has begun between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Rahul Gandhi. Modi’s rule is autocracy and Rahul’s soul is democracy.
Those who believe that after I have left the government as prime minister, I will go into a permanent retirement, really should have their heads examined.
Lee Kuan Yew
Why are we now going into space? Well, why did we trouble to look past the next mountain? Our prime obligation to ourselves is to make the unknown known. We are on a journey to keep an appointment with whatever we are.
Gene Roddenberry
Now you may do it badly, you may do it well, some people like you, some people hate you, all the rest of it – but you have got a real motivating life purpose. [on being Prime Minister
Tony Blair
Individuals have little opportunity to get elected to Parliament under the label of the government party… unless they are in good standing with the Prime Minister and pledged to be cooperative.
Stockwell Day
I dread my trial at the pearly gates – knowing my luck, I’ll be hot on the heels of a blameless nun who will be ushered straight to a luscious cloud with prime sea views.
Robert Rinder
Not having time or energy for weight loss makes no sense. Does it take more time or energy to eat fish than prime rib? No.
Martha Beck
If you are a responsible scientist, you are going to present your new results in a paper, and maybe if, over time, things are established, and it’s prime time for the public to hear about it, then you include it in a book.
Lisa Randall
The prime minister found something hopeful in the man’s eyes and manner. The 30 or so people who run this world analyze one another that way and then make decisions of life and death for us. Scary, but true.
Hugh Sidey
To me, being in your prime means playing your best and feeling your best, too.
Warren Moon
We have parliamentary democracy. It is the prime minister who runs the show, who is the chief executive of the country. The president must have powers defined under the 1973 constitution, nothing more.
Nawaz Sharif
I don’t know why, but Putin has made a ritual out of humiliating Medvedev. Sometimes I even feel sorry for the prime minister.
Alexei Navalny
Research indicates that workers have three prime needs: Interesting work, recognition for doing a good job, and being let in on things that are going on in the company.
Zig Ziglar
Any spat involving the name of my mother, Britain’s longestserving Prime Minister of the 20th century, seems to have pulling power.
Carol Thatcher
My favorite process is writing, from day one. The songs I have written throughout the years were a real great opportunity for me to communicate, because I think tha’ts my prime objective on this planet.
Gloria Estefan
The refusal of King George to allow the colonies to operate an honest money system, which freed the ordinary man from clutches of the money manipulators was probably the prime cause of the revolution.
Benjamin Franklin
Five decades ago, as India’s first prime minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, began visibly ailing, the nation and the world were consumed by the question: ‘After Nehru, who?’ The inexpressible fear lay in the subtext to the question: ‘After Nehru, what?’
Shashi Tharoor
I’m quite happy sat in front of the telly watching everything on Sky, Netflix, Amazon Prime. And the one called Roku. I’ve got the lot.
Shaun Ryder
I think the rest of the world will think we’re made, and indeed we are. We’ve turned out the greatest Prime Minister in the post war years simply because of short term nerves.
Ann Widdecombe
While Labour Party orators readily remember the 1980s for Conservative Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher’s free-booting variety of entrepreneurial meritocracy, what gets forgotten is that Thatcher also gave the heave-ho to the old establishment’s notion of merit – good breeding, a posh school, and so on.
Terry Glavin
I think God is as much a basic ingredient in the universe as neutrons and positrons. This is the prime force, when we look around the universe.
Gene Roddenberry
I did get the opportunity to become prime minister once when TDP had 42 Lok Sabha seats. I had turned it down only in the interest of the then united Andhra Pradesh.
N. Chandrababu Naidu
When I will be the prime minister of Israel, I will embrace all streams of Judaism.
Benny Gantz
I don’t want to be Prime Minister of England, I want to be Prime Minister of the whole of the United Kingdom.
David Cameron
These are important reforms. Infrastructure, education, health, hospitals, closing the gap with indigenous Australians. Also the Apology to the first Australians. As Prime Minister of the country I am proud of each and every one of these achievements.
Kevin Rudd
Both during the elections and as Prime Minister, I have repeatedly and publicly said that I support the establishment of a Palestinian state alongside the State of Israel.
Ariel Sharon
There are cycles in American politics. US cycles are even more pronounced because we Americans have a totally entrepreneurial presidential system. We don’t have parliamentary opposition parties with a shadow prime minister and shadow cabinets. Every four years, the opposition reinvents itself.
Charles Krauthammer
When we have a Deputy Prime Minister who tells people not to drive cars but has two Jags himself, and where the Minister who tells people not to have two homes turns out to have nine himself no wonder the public believe politicians are hypocrites.
William Hague
A clear conscience is absolutely essential for distinguishing between the voice of God and the voice of the enemy. Unconfessed sin is a prime reason why many do not know God’s will.
Winkie Pratney
We all know that Prime Ministers are wedded to the truth, but like other wedded couples they sometimes live apart.
Hector Hugh Munro
Television is just the wrong medium, at least in prime time, to teach science. I think it is hopeless if it insists on behaving like television. . . .
Jeremy Bernstein
We have this extraordinarily unbalanced constitution, in which we have an elected dictatorship of the prime minister.
David Starkey
If you had a European prime minister who experienced what we’ve experienced it would be expected that he would retire or resign.
William F. Buckley, Jr.
You cannot stop what the public want. The public want two strong women in the final round and then a woman prime minister and I’m absolutely with that.
Iain Duncan Smith
How do you spell the name of the Irish prime minister? It sounds like ‘teeshuck’, but we spell it ‘taoiseach.’ We respect foreign spellings these days – a sign of our more egalitarian times, perhaps.
David Crystal
A prime number is one (which is) measured by a unit alone.
Positioning one leader against another is not necessarily how our democracy functions. We do not directly elect the president or the prime minister. We choose parties based on their policies, and their efficacy depends on how well they implement their policies.
Pinarayi Vijayan
A woman said to me, ‘You’re better than your successor.’ She then said she’s lived under 10 prime ministers, and each was worse than the last. That put me in my place.
Gordon Brown
I am a prime example of what the American dream is.
Eddy Alvarez
In Kuwait there is already a real, elected parliament with genuine power, but the prime minister is always a member of the ruling al-Sabah family. That must end.
Elliott Abrams
As much as I am very critical of Ariel Sharon in the first Lebanon war, I think that he was the right person at the right time in the right place as prime minister. He made a series of very significant decisions, not one of which was popular or seemed justified at the time.
Ronen Bergman
It became clear I wanted to be a development economist. I mean, I said I wanted to work on the economics of poor countries. And I’d actually say that I don’t think that was so much about narrowing the gap as about increasing their incomes, which means economic growth, which is really my prime interest.
James Mirrlees
That Ted Turner is a genius…He has taken what used to be a carnival side show and turned it into a gold mine. Yes – wrestling has become prime time for the masses. He’s making these giant men into millionares with movie star status.
Samantha Barks
Perhaps we shall also have to hold in check other coloured peoples who will soon be in their certain prime, and thus preserve the world, which is the world of our blood, of our children and of our grandchildren.
Heinrich Himmler
The prime purpose of being four is to enjoy being four – of secondary importance is to prepare for being five.
Jim Trelease
Platforms like Netflix, Amazon Prime, etc. have been a great escape for a lot of people who don’t watch television and want to ditch the heavy priced tickets and snacks at the movie theaters. And the number is only growing.
Shweta Basu Prasad
Being prime minister is a lonely job… you cannot lead from the crowd.
Margaret Thatcher
Is the role of the prime minister to cultivate political leadership in Israel? My answer is yes.
Benny Gantz
I had read too many memoirs that were written after the writer or the director was past his or her prime.
Joe Eszterhas
For all the criticism I’ve been showered with – people calling me a betrayer, a backstabber – frankly, the only criticism I have of Manmohan Singh is that he weakened the office of the prime minister, and he brought down the dignity of the office.
Sanjaya Baru
Make use of time, let not advantage slip;
Beauty within itself should not be wasted:
Fair flowers that are not gather’d in their prime
Rot and consume themselves in little time.
William Shakespeare
I’m a prime example of a person who loves hip-hop, and I will defend it till the day I die.
Jason Moran
I mean the prime case that you can look at is Martin Luther King, who was only an activist for 13 years. But every year, he became deeper, more concerned, connecting more issues.
Bill Ayers
I have as much chance of becoming Prime Minister as of being decapitated by a frisbee or of finding Elvis.
Boris Johnson
I find that it is much easier now for women to be in any position because, as you see, they are presidents of banks, they are prime ministers, they are doctors. Everything is about women.
Carolina Herrera
I am extremely devoted to Amazon Prime – which offers speedier free deliveries, free movie streaming and other benefits for an annual fee – but I don’t think it is great for groceries.
Emily Oster
Curiosity is the prime requisite of the novelist.
Lucy Poate Stebbins
What do you prefer? A prime minister obsessed with being popular, or a prime minister who does the job?
Ehud Olmert
It was unfortunate for other women who might come after [Margaret Thatcher] that the first woman to become prime minister was a male impersonator.
Hilary Mantel
Demonetisation was always on the government’s radar and was part of the plan from day one when Narendra Modi took over as prime minister, as he was concerned about the black money.
Ajay Piramal
The aim of God in history is the creation of an all-inclusive community of loving persons with God himself at the very heart of this community as its prime Sustainer and most glorious Inhabitant.
Dallas Willard
British Prime Minister William Ewart Gladstone spent his declining years trying to guess the answer to the Irish Question; unfortunately, whenever he was getting warm, the Irish secretly changed the Question.
W. C. Sellar
Resignations are for Prime Ministers and those caught with their trousers down, not for me.
Brian Clough
Although I never wanted Theresa May to be our Prime Minister, I had been prepared to give her the benefit of the doubt.
Nigel Farage
As president, I was more successful; I had more opportunity than as prime minister. Why? I didn’t have the power to give orders, to command, but I had the opportunity to call people to volunteer. In my period of presidency, I never heard the word ‘no.’
Shimon Peres
To deal with the true causes of war one must begin by recognizing as of prime relevancy to the solution of the problem the familiar fact that civilization is a partial, incomplete, and, to a great extent, superficial modification of barbarism.
Elihu Root
It’s insane going from skiing to cycling. Even though you are in prime shape, you feel like you have never worked out a day in your life.
Oksana Masters
We have this joke in England that half the people want me to be prime minister, and the other half want me shot.
Jeremy Kyle
After Cannes, my agent told me to get the next flight to LA. He was right. I had a part in ‘Prime Suspect 3’ by the end of the week.
David Thewlis
I’ve done four videos for older people under my new brand, Prime Time, and the missing link was yoga. I’m aiming it for older people – people who have never worked out or who are recovering from a surgery and have to start slow. It’s easy, you can’t get hurt, it’s very doable, and I’ve done it in ten-minute segments.
Jane Fonda
Germany is the place where when Hitler was the prime minister and supreme commander, he burned over six million Jews. This is because Hitler and all German people knew that Israelis are not people who are working in the interest of the world and that is why they burned the Israelis alive with gas in the soil of Germany.
Idi Amin
Every prime minister… has the responsibility to provide security for his people.
Ehud Olmert
When those who are educated using their education to exploit those who aren’t. That’s what the sub-prime scandal represents – people of education using it at the expense of others. At Jazz at Lincoln Center, we have 22 educational programs. Not just the word but the substance of education is guided by the arts.
Wynton Marsalis
The last time I was in Japan as President of Russia was 11 years ago, if memory serves. I later visited in my capacity as Prime Minister.
Vladimir Putin
Wherever Modi has addressed the local Indian communities during his visits to foreign countries, the Indians there are extremely happy. After the prime minister’s visits, the Indians in those countries are feeling a great sense of pride, and the respect for them has increased.
Sushma Swaraj
I think I’d be a prime candidate for canonisation.
If there were an election today, Netanyahu would win. Yet, his standing in the polls is also a reflection of the weakness of Ehud Olmert, the current prime minister – who stands at 2 percent in a recent poll – and the enduring weaknesses of the Labor Party.
Dennis Ross
When Prime Minister Erdogan came to Washington in 2009, he sounded almost like the ambassador from Iran.
Stephen Kinzer
The prime minister of Ireland will be celebrating St. Patrick’s Day at the White House. So finally the Secret Service agents will have a drinking buddy.
Conan O’Brien
Pitt the Younger was a great British Prime Minister. He saved Europe from Napoleon, he was the pilot who weathered the storm. I don’t know whether he’d have done it any better or quicker had he been married.
Edward Heath
Any time, every time, you can damn the Prime Minister and so long as it is not a lie and a criminal lie, nothing happens to you.В  You can say a lot of things.В  You can write books about him, damning him.В  So long as it is not a libel, go ahead.
Lee Kuan Yew
Well football teams are perhaps easier to control than political parties, I’m sure the Prime Minister would agree with me, but yeah I think every team needs discipline and a sense of self-belief and that’s important, that’s what leadership’s all about.
Iain Duncan Smith
I think there’s nothing sadder than a pro athlete who plays past his prime.
Lynn Samuels
My childhood dream was to be prime minister.
Jess Phillips
As Prime Minister of Israel, I will introduce a bill into the Knesset that will simply pay the Arabs not to shoot at the Jews.
Roseanne Barr
I have an ambivalent relationship with Margaret Thatcher. She came to power in May 1979 – a month before my 11th birthday. I was far too young to have developed a great deal of political awareness. I remember it, though – my mother excited at the dinner table because Britain had its first female prime minister.
Sara Sheridan
I just really want to continue on the same intensity of work ethic, I don’t want to slow now. I’m 21-year’s old and I feel like this era and a few years to come are my prime years, so I want to utilise them.
Jason Derulo
At home we have always regarded the dining table as the prime seat of learning. We planned it so it was impossible to see or hear a TV from the table, and it has paid dividends in the volume of ideas that have been shared over the evening meal.
Noel Whittaker
If I was prime minister, I would declare a state of emergency on climate change.
Cornelia Parker
You need quite good shock absorbers and a sense of humour to be the Prime Minister’s child.
Carol Thatcher
I completely believe in the leadership and vision of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and it is because of this that I have joined the BJP.
Himani Shivpuri
Besides writing music and surfing, I like to simply chill with my friends. Watching movies and going out to eat are often my prime choices for a day off.
James Maslow
Even from my sickbed, even if you are going to lower me into the grave and I feel that something is going wrong, I will get up. Those who believe that after I have left the government as prime minister, I will go into a permanent retirement, really should have their heads examined.
Lee Kuan Yew
[S]leep, and enough of it, is the prime necessity. Enough exercise, and good food and enough, are other necessities. But sleep—good sleep, and enough of it—this is a necessity without which you cannot have the exercise of use, nor the food.
Edward Everett Hale
So little of what makes a democracy work is written down. So much of it is just the things you don’t do. There are a lot of things that a prime minister or a president can do and they don’t do them because it never occurs to them to do them.
David Frum
I want to be a prime creator – as every self-regarding artist should do.
Peter Greenaway
Pretty much every prime minister since I can remember has made me mad.
Sam Fender
Now that we’ve made that decision, everyone is thinking about the practical consequences and I think Theresa May could be the most challenging prime ministership since the Suez Crisis, possibly since the Second World War.
Jeremy Hunt
The tape measure doesn’t lie. Get that tape measure out and put it on your hips and your waist. Keep checking it. And keep exercising and cutting those calories down until that tape measure gets close to where you were in your prime.
Jack LaLanne
That’s the hard part about sport: as men we haven’t started to be in our prime, but as athletes we are old people. I needed support. I lost trust and did stupid things.
Boris Becker
[When asked how it felt to be a female prime minister:] I don’t know: I’ve never experienced the alternative.
Margaret Thatcher
On Aug. 19, 1953, Prime Minister Mohammad Mossadegh of Iran became the first victim of a C.I.A. coup. Ten months later, on June 27, 1954, President Jacobo Arbenz of Guatemala became the second.
Stephen Kinzer
The only option to avoid war is the departure of the number one warmonger in the world US President George W Bush. His policy has brought disaster to the United States. This crazy man should go and also his subject, disciple and follower UK Prime Minister Tony Blair.
Naji Sabri
I flew a full string of 35 combat missions over some of the most heavily defended targets in Europe. We were hitting Hitler’s oil refineries, his tank factories, his aircraft factories, his railway yards. Those were our prime targets.
George McGovern
What I, as the prime minister of the present government of Israel, started to do, is first to tackle the longest part of the Arab-Israeli conflict, the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
Yitzhak Rabin
‘Survivor’ is one of CBS’s signature series and symbol of enduring quality and entertainment on prime time television.
Nina Tassler
Spying on the prime minister of Israel and Congress has nothing to do with national security – only politics.
Mark Meadows
Prime Minister Modi keeps challenging the system to keep performing better and better. He sets aggressive targets, and the whole system has to act.
Piyush Goyal
The King of Spain displayed his esteem for me in a manner that I confess flattered me pleasantly when, after the death of Don Luis de Haro, he stated publicly in front of all the foreign ambassadors that he wanted to follow my example in not having a prime minister any longer.
Louis XIV
I wouldn’t like to live in a castle now, but I’d enjoy a visit to Restormel in Cornwall in its 13th century prime. It’s a circular castle with the rooms built against the outer walls and quite intimate in size. Life there wouldn’t follow the pattern of more classic castle design.
Jo Beverley
The monarchy is so extraordinarily useful. When Britain wins a battle she shouts, God save the Queen; when she loses, she votes down the prime minister.
Winston Churchill
Oh roses for the flush of youth, And laurel for the perfect prime; But pluck an ivy branch for me Grown old before my time.
Christina Rossetti
Captain Carpenter rose up in his prime
Put on his pistols and went riding out
But had got wellnigh nowhere at that time
Till he fell in with ladies in a rout.
John Crowe Ransom
[Margaret] Thatcher had just become prime minister; there was talk about whether it was an advance to have a woman prime minister if it was someone with policies like hers: She may be a woman but she isn’t a sister, she may be a sister but she isn’t a comrade.
Caryl Churchill
Pakistan’s political leadership needs to make a clear choice to fight the Taliban decisively, not with half measures, the burden is on Prime Minister Sharif to show he can unite the country to defend its children.
Bruce Riedel
Presidents and prime ministers, whether they live in the rich or the poor world, are insulated and isolated from the devastating impact of global poverty. They read the statistics, but they rarely witness at first hand the misery and degradation of life on a dollar a day.
Jonathan Dimbleby
Of all social institutions language is least amenable to initiative. It blends with the life of society, and the latter, inert by nature, is a prime conservative force.
Ferdinand de Saussure
I take it as a prime cause of the present confusion of society that it is too sickly and too doubtful to use pleasure frankly as a test of value.
Rebecca West
Having now been on three different soap operas was more than I could have hoped for. Then going on to doing a movie and being on prime time TV, to my own show on Netflix – I couldn’t have dreamed of what this has snowballed into.
Chrishell Stause
I didn’t want to get into any Amazon Prime Video show just like that. I was waiting for a big series to come where the script is good, the role is good and where there’s great talent.
Neeraj Kabi
I was elected prime minister in 2014 under incredibly difficult circumstances: A third of the country was overrun by terrorists, the economy was struggling, people were divided by sectarianism, and relations with the wider world were strained.
Haider al-Abadi
A good rant is cathartic. Ranting is what keeps me sane.
They always come from a different place. Take the prime minister, for example. Sometimes when I rant about him, I am angry; other times, I am just severely annoyed-it’s an important distinction.
Rick Mercer
Most critical histories of U.S. involvement in Iran rightly began with the joint British-U.S. coup against democratically elected Prime Minister Mohammad Mosaddegh in 1953, which installed Pahlavi on the Peacock Throne. But it was Kissinger who, in 1972, greatly deepened the relationship between Washington and Tehran.
Greg Grandin
As prime minister of Iraq, I am required to act in accordance with the Constitution to protect all of the Iraqi people and to keep our country united.
Haider al-Abadi
But first, the news: The House of Commons was sealed off today after police chased an escaped lunatic through the front door during Prime Minister’s question time. A spokesman at Scotland Yard said it was like looking for a needle in a haystack.
Ronnie Barker
When Gordon Brown becomes prime minister, the balance sheet that reflects his economic stewardship could look very sickly indeed. He could become Labour’s biggest liability, not its most marketable asset.
Vince Cable
Israel is extraordinary blessed to have [Benjamin Netanyahu] as prime minister at this pivotal time in history and so is the United States of America to hear his voice against this deal.
Lou Dobbs
I actually find that Canadians are incredibly interested in democracy, and alarmed when they realize that the Prime Minister’s Office is controlling virtually everything that goes on within the federal government.
Elizabeth May
Spain’s new Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero announced he will soon call back Spain’s 1300 troops from Iraq – meaning the coalition of the willing is fast turning into a duet of the stubborn.
Jon Stewart
Our prime purpose in life is to serve others.
Dalai Lama
I’ve done my “mind over matter” movies, and I think probably that people aren’t really interested in seeing me do that anymore. I think I’m kind of past my prime to do dramatic films. I think it’d become kind of like almost a pathetic cry out to be recognized as a serious drama actor.
Sylvester Stallone
Budapest is a prime site for dreams: the East’s exuberant vision of the West, the West’s uneasy hallucination of the East. It is a dreamed-up city; a city almost completely faked; a city invented out of other cities, out of Paris by way of Vienna — the imitation, as Claudio Magris has it, of an imitation.
M. John Harrison
I do not rule out the possibility of being prime minister of India one day, but there is still time.
Lalu Prasad Yadav
The more books there are on shelves, the more will be sold. Once you get to the level of The Secret and have 40-100 copies in many stores, managers have almost no choice but to put them in prime real estate like front-of-store, end caps, or front window.
Tim Ferriss
Entertaining audiences is of prime priority for me. If they feel entertained, through that I get appreciation and my talent is therefore proved.
Babu Antony
I am in regular contact with Prime Minister [Shinzo] Abe. We have met several times this year [2016].
Vladimir Putin
It is tragic that we have lost one of our nation’s finest actors in the prime of his life. Heath Ledger’s diverse and challenging roles will be remembered as some of the great performances by an Australian actor.
Kevin Rudd
Ever since Modi became prime minister, he has given a free rein to his ministers and BJP functionaries to create an environment of communal tension and violence.
Kapil Sibal
3 is prime, 5 is prime, 7 is prime, 9 is a paradox; as is a paradox why the number 1 is not prime if it has no other divisors besides himself.
Bertrand Russell
I did not know I was in my prime until afterwards.
Mason Cooley
We have had some bad incidents and there continue to be allegations of others which will be investigated; but overwhelmingly American forces there, putting their lives on the line every day, protecting Iraqis, helping to liberate them, that is appreciated by the Iraqi people and by the Prime Minister.
Condoleezza Rice
The prime goal is to alleviate suffering, and not to prolong life. And if your treatment does not alleviate suffering, but only prolongs life, that treatment should be stopped.
Christiaan Barnard
The work of a Prime Minister is the loneliest job in the world.
Stanley Baldwin
An Australian prime minister once said that his job was the second most important job in the country – behind being captain of the cricket team. It’s not a job you take on lightly.
Glenn McGrath
The Prime Minister is stealing our clothes but he is going to look pretty ridiculous walking around in mine.
Margaret Thatcher
I describe our family as the Transformers. Separately, we can do our own thing, but the minute we start locking in, we become a force to be reckoned with. We become Optimus Prime.
Gok Wan
I use color as my chief guide. But I always squeeze an avocado – you want the fruit to feel close to the skin. If you can feel a separation, the avocado is past its prime. The avocado should have a little give, but not much.
Dorie Greenspan
The ultimate goal of the whole policy of peaceful co-existence was to make progress on the basic goal laid down by Lenin of a world largely composed of socialist, communist states, in which the Soviet Union would be the prime mover.
Paul Nitze
Prime Minister Maliki, released from American restraint, acted on his worst instincts, creating enormous distrust in Iraq’s Kurdish population and deeply embittering Sunnis in western Iraq’s Al Anbar, who lost any confidence in a Baghdad government they saw as adversarial.
Jim Mattis
Being prime minister isn’t the only job in life! As far as I’m concerned, I could live in a village and be satisfied.
Indira Gandhi
In a great number of the cosmogonic myths the world is said to have developed from a great water, which was the prime matter. In many cases, as for instance in an Indian myth, this prime matter is indicated as a solution, out of which the solid earth crystallized out.
Svante Arrhenius
Prime ministers require the hide of a rhinoceros, the morals of St. Francis, the patience of Job, the wisdom of Solomon, the strength of Hercules, the leadership of Napoleon, the magnetism of a Beatle and the subtlety of Machiavelli.
Lester B. Pearson
Last night, President Bush gave a prime-time press conference. It was such a big deal that Fox decided to preempt American Idol. Which made sense to me, you don’t want too many amateurs on in one night.
David Letterman
Canadians are hardly assertive or demanding. We don’t expect U.S. presidents to bow down to our prime ministers when they visit us in Ottawa, nor are we looking for the occasional kickback on an F-16 deal.
Vaclav Smil
Even in my prime, I need God in my life because without God, we’re nothing.
Manny Pacquiao
I was encouraged to stand for Parliament by David Cameron, and he has given me the opportunity to serve in what I believe is a great, reforming government. I think he is an outstanding Prime Minister.
Michael Gove
The Prime Minister gave President Obama one of my artworks and suddenly my name was all over the news.
Ben Eine
You mustn’t expect prime ministers to enjoy themselves. If they do, they mustn’t show it – the population would be horrified.
Edward Heath
As a prime minister, my job is not to try and influence or opine on what a leader of a different country should be doing.
Justin Trudeau
I am in the prime of my senility.
Joel Chandler Harris
So always keep momentum, it’s this prime directive for managing a startup.
Sam Altman
I’m going to say yes, I reckon we’ll have the first BME (black or minority ethnicity) prime minister.
James Cleverly
I don’t believe that any prime minister would send our troops into conflict without the assurance from the military that they had the equipment necessary for the operation.
Gordon Brown
I don’t care about style, but I am a total clean freak, so a messy home is a deal breaker. I had one girlfriend who never wanted to go back to her place. When we finally did, it turned out that she was sleeping on her couch because her bedroom was so messy. That is a prime example of someone I don’t want to be around.
Drew Scott
The White House announced on Monday the Prime Minister of Australia will visit President Bush in September. We have a lot in common. Australia started out as a prison colony, while the United States has evolved into one.
Argus Hamilton
Even in Poland, where the president is far less powerful than the prime minister, people have a deeper and more atavistic relationship with the person who is a serious contender to become head of state. They want their national leader – the tribal chief – to look like them, to live like them, to reflect their values.
Anne Applebaum
When I was 14, I told all the girls in my class that I wanted to be the first woman prime minister. Someone else beat me to that!
Cherie Blair
The prime reason the Google homepage is so bare is due to the fact that the founders didn’t know HTML and just wanted a quick interface. In fact, it was noted that the SUBMIT button was a long time coming and hitting the RETURN key was the only way to burst Google into life.
Marissa Mayer
I’ve been awed by the incredible opportunities that automatically float to the Harvard undergrads I once taught – from building homes for the poor in Nicaragua to landing prime White House internships.
Nina Easton
We could have made peace with Syrian dictator Bashar Assad a long time ago. It didn’t happen, because Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu doesn’t want to give up the Golan (Heights).
Tom Segev
Neil Young is the prime example, the grand goal, if you will. He’s still shredding, and he never lost his credibility.
Mac DeMarco
It’s my responsibility, and entirely my fault, Of course I regret it. It’s the kind of locker-room conversation we all use, but as prime minister I shouldn’t have used it.
Brian Mulroney
The prime directive of media training is that the question never matters. That an honest response is for amateurs. Media trainers advise memorizing a set of non-responses and repeating them no matter what question is asked.
Neil Macdonald
I am honoured to be invited by our respected Prime Minister Shri Narendrabhai Modi to join the ‘Swachh Bharat Abhiyan.’ I dedicate myself to this movement and will invite nine other leading Indians to join me in the ‘Clean India’ campaign.
Anil Ambani
The attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, is a prime example. Even though Obama KNEW – from the moment of the assault – that it was a TERRORIST attack, he didn’t let the American people know.
Chuck Norris
The visits Prime Minister Koizumi made to the Yasukuni Shrine, I believe, had nothing to do with approval ratings. He paid respects at the Yasukuni Shrine to pay respects to the people of Japan who fought and lost their lives for the country and to pray for the peace of their souls.
Shinzo Abe
The Canadian kid who wants to grow up to be Prime Minister isn’t thinking big, he is setting a limit to his ambitions rather early.
Mordecai Richler
Dictatorship is like a giant beech-tree – very magnificent to look at in its prime, but nothing grows underneath it.
Stanley Baldwin
When the Congress was in power, the educated – especially the engineers – were jobless and they could not even sell pakodas and the UPA government could not bestow attention. But Prime Minister Narendra Modi created employment opportunities for the educated youth.
Tamilisai Soundararajan
I don’t just want a better deal for Britain. I want a better deal for Europe too. So I speak as British prime minister with a positive vision for the future of the European Union. A future in which Britain wants, and should want, to play a committed and active part.
David Cameron
Differences in homeownership rates remain the prime driver of the nation’s racial wealth gap.
Matthew Desmond
As the resignation letter which I wrote to the Prime Minister clearly implies, it was not the outcome I sought, but it is one that I accept without rancour, despite what might be described as the hard landing involved.
Nigel Lawson
It sounds so weird, but I’m totally pro-aging. If you look at the film industry, it’s so funny how it’s so much more accepted that actors begin their prime in their forties or fifties, and for women, it’s so different. I think it’s time to change that. Aging is a beautiful thing.
Michiel Huisman
It is very helpful to have a partner on whom you can rely in any situation. But the problem starts because some people don’t like it that one twin would be president and the other prime minister.
Lech Kaczynski
Some newspapers in Britain have become closer to these kind of mafia families. They wield an incredible power. They choose our governments, they choose our prime ministers, and they live above the law.
Hugh Grant
I wince at some of the things I did as the young wife of Canada’s fifteenth prime minister, Pierre Elliott Trudeau.
Margaret Trudeau
We need to give the prime minister of the day a chance. If he or she cannot win an election, so be it. But no prime minister can push through the reforms we need if they cannot even finish a term in office.
Frank Lowy
Money has never been of prime importance to me.
Upasana Singh
Good thinkers always prime the pump of ideas. They always look for things to get the thinking process started, because what you put in always impacts what comes out.
John C. Maxwell
When I warned them [the French] that Britain would fight on alone whatever they did, their generals told their Prime Minister and his divided Cabinet, In three weeks England will have her neck wrung like a chicken. Some chicken! Some neck!
Winston Churchill
Peace in the Middle East is of prime importance to the Philippines, due to the presence of around 2 million of our countrymen working in that region.
Benigno Aquino III
Fortunately, when Benazir Bhutto was prime minister, she banned public whipping of women – banned whipping of women, period, which is a marvelous thing she did.
Asma Jahangir
As prime minister, Hariri did not directly confront Hezbollah or the Syrians, but conflict simmered nonetheless.
Ronen Bergman
Politicians pose and grip and grin, and mouth blandishments, and, like the beloved Arab leaders, are careful to say nothing. The prime photo op directive, it seems, is to say absolutely nothing.
Neil Macdonald
I didn’t have an imaginary friend, and even if I did I’m sure it would have been derivative of something I saw on television. Optimus Prime maybe?
Dan Santat
This Sonia Gandhi thing should be seen in perspective – the people of India have an emotional attachment to the family. And why not? Three of the five Congress prime ministers belong to that family. The people empathise with the family name.
Sharad Pawar
Issues like immigration, police brutality, and other onerous laws put in place by local and state governments are prime avenues for active clergy to work with their parishioners on the issues that affect their daily lives.
Anthea Butler
Once upon a time – in the days of Margaret Thatcher and John Major – I would have rejoiced in a Conservative Party landslide in Britain. But now, Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s victory fills me with fear and foreboding.
Max Boot
Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi looks in the mirror and sees a playboy of the old school. And men such as Dominique Strauss-Kahn, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Charlie Sheen no doubt look at Berlusconi and think, ‘Role model!’ Women, of course, know otherwise. They see him as an aging, pathetic buffoon.
Graydon Carter
If you become deadlocked,return to the prime point.
Daisaku Ikeda
The Prime Minister of India, at a meeting that I co-chaired a few months ago, stated that any development that is not sustainable is not development.
Maurice Strong
Whether it’s Liberal or Conservative – any time someone has a perspective on what their experience has been as prime minister of the country, it’s always interesting.
Andrew Scheer
No prime minister in Britain will ever be able to go to war without the endorsement of a majority of the House of Commons.
Neil Kinnock
317 is a prime, not because we think so, or because our minds are shaped in one way rather than another, but because it is so, because mathematical reality is built that way.
G. H. Hardy
Nearly forty years ago, a distinguished Prime Minister of this country … said, ‘They may not be angels but they are at least our friends.’* I must say that I do not think that we probably demonstrated in that forty years that we are angels yet, but I hope we have demonstrated that we are at least friends.
John F. Kennedy
Too often our leaders cannot work for the greater good because they acknowledge no good greater than politics. But if that’s truly our prime directive and highest imperative, God help us all.
Leonard Pitts
After I was elected as an MP, there were many who used to criticize me, but I still stood. This I have learnt from Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is used to being criticized severally from his days in Gujarat.
Kirron Kher
Government will not nominate the former Labor prime minister [Kevin Rudd] to be the UN’s next secretary-general.
Malcolm Turnbull
While Prime Minister Justin Trudeau reaches out to embrace suffering Syrians, his government seems ready to throw embattled Mexicans under the bus just to appease Mr. Trump.
Denise Dresser
I’d love to be everywhere but I can’t. I have three children and a husband who is prime minister. I need help. I need a team to help me serve the people.
Sophie Gregoire Trudeau
I grew up in a Hindu household but went to a Roman Catholic school. I grew up with a mother who said, ‘I’ll arrange a marriage for you at 18,’ but she also said that we could achieve anything we put our minds to an encourage us to dream of becoming prime minister or president.
Indra Nooyi
I would like to become the prime minister, do the job for two years, and then leave and devote myself to public work.
Bidzina Ivanishvili
What the president announced yesterday, is that somehow magically, if we just continue to prime the pump of taxpayer dollars, we’re going to see magically an economic recovery.
Eric Cantor
I want more stand-up comics in prime time. It’s great for every comedian.
Ralphie May
Transport is not a ministry the ambitious should accept: no transport minister has gone on to be prime minister.
Justin Cartwright
As for the job of prime minister, I like it, yes. But no more than I’ve liked other work that I’ve done as an adult.
Indira Gandhi
To be a good fighter pilot, there is one prime requisite think fast, and act faster.
John Trevor Godfrey
During a news conference, when he was standing with the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, President [Donald] Trump responded to a question from an Israeli reporter about the rise in anti-Semitic attacks – by boasting about his election victory.
Amy Goodman
How I’d like to start a new life in a distant land. Not because of racism or politics. But to be in a place that I knew hardly anything about, in a place where I wouldn’t even care to know the prime minister’s name. A place where names and faces would have no meaning for me.
Sayed Kashua
The Holocaust never quite leaves Israeli Jews alone. Arabs use it against them and they use it against Arabs. Jews use it against other Jews. Even the president of the United States, it seems, can use it against the prime minister of Israel.
David K. Shipler
Few bands in hard rock history have been so adept at balancing the awesome and trivial as Van Halen in their prime.
Chuck Eddy
Richard Nixon made a toast to me as a future Prime Minister of Canada when I was 4 months old, sitting as a centerpiece in the middle of a table as my father had plonked me down there. It was more about politeness than any great vision.
Justin Trudeau
I truly don’t know why it was ended, though. It was suddenly decided that that would be it. They never said particularly why, because they were cut off in their prime.
Derek Jacobi
I would like Modi to become the Prime Minister and expand the Gujarat model of development across the country.
Akkineni Nagarjuna
As an economist specializing in the global economy, international trade and debt, I have spent most of my career helping others make big decisions – prime ministers, presidents and chief executives – and so I’m all too aware of the risks and dangers of poor choices in the public as well as the private sphere.
Noreena Hertz
The prime goal of censorship is to promote ignorance, whether it is done via lying and bowdlerized school texts or by attacking individual books.
Felice Picano
I never criticized Modi. All I said was that Modi cannot be a chief minister and still nurse prime ministerial ambitions. I only suggested that he should resign as the chief minister and then stake his claim to be prime minister.
Raj Thackeray
The plough of Time breaks up our Eden-land, And tramples down its fruitful flowery prime. Yet thro’ the dust of ages living shoots O’ the old immortal seed start in the furrows; And, where Love looked on with glorious eye, These quicken’d germs of everlastingness Flower lusty, as of old in Paradise!
Gerald Massey
Up to here, in general, we have mainly stuffed the brain of the young people with a indigestible multitude of varios notions, without thinking about enough of the prime necessity to form their character.
African Spir
I had a very good relationship with President Bill Clinton when I was prime minister.
Nawaz Sharif
Zeus, first cause, prime mover; for what thing without Zeus is done among mortals?
This is why, as a prime minister of Israel, I can promise you one more thing: Even if Israel has to stand alone, Israel will stand. But I know that Israel does not stand alone. I know that America stands with Israel.
Benjamin Netanyahu
It’s not uncommon for some Khmer boxers to fight with dangerous frequency, sometimes as often as weekly or bi-weekly, getting up to three hundred or more fights in a career, with the length of a career varying from fighter to fighter, some engaging in bouts far past their prime.
Mary Pilon
The people took to the streets in July 2018 to demand change. I heard you. That’s why I chose an electoral rival – notary public Jean Henry Ceant – as my prime minister.
Jovenel Moise
But at the end of the day, when the military command looks up, it sees us — the minister of defense and the prime minister. When we look up, we see nothing but the sky above us.
Ehud Barak
Thou art thy mother’s glass, and she in thee
Calls back the lovely April of her prime…
William Shakespeare
There is no hard and fast rule that I only work with debutants. I give prime importance to script, and when that works out, everything else falls in place automatically. In fact, most debutants express interest to work with me.
Vijay Sethupathi
I left Green Bay for Seattle in 1999. I wonder what would have happened had I stayed in Green Bay, where I’ve got one of the best quarterbacks of all time in his prime.
Mike Holmgren
I’ve been making the NHS’s case that we need significant and sustainable funding increases to meet the demographic challenges we face, and the prime minister completely appreciates that.
Jeremy Hunt
Crossrail is a prime example of infrastructure. It is a rather deadly word, but I think it is exciting stuff, the civil engineering which makes Britain tick – the bridges, tunnels, power and water networks, which bind us together.
Evan Davis
I wasn’t one of those people who had some grand plan to become Prime Minister. I’m a normal person. When I was being foolish in my twenties, when I was at university, I wasn’t thinking I was going to become an MP.
Chuka Umunna
The crime and violence in the black community is a prime example of the damaging effect of broken families and single female-headed households.
Jesse Lee Peterson
I expect every prime minister to have his own imprint.
Mahathir Mohamad
Vallabhbhai Patel was known as the Iron Man of India, and it is said that if he was the Prime Minister then the issue of Kashmir wouldn’t have come about. And if Savarkar was the Prime Minister, Pakistan wouldn’t have come into existence.
Uddhav Thackeray
Your personality as the prime minister feeds through to what you emphasise, and what you don’t, how you’ll handle a situation – whether you’ve got the combination of intelligence or instincts to adapt and to make good decisions.
John Key
The first two Prime Ministers whom I served, Ted Heath and Margaret Thatcher drew strikingly different lessons from the Second World War.
Douglas Hurd
As prime minister, I will never make a decision that will be an injustice to Serbia and its citizens.
Ivica Dacic
In 2014, I heard Modi ji speak about toilets. For the first time, I saw a prime minister with such an outlook. I was impressed.
Ravi Kishan
At home and abroad I have repeatedly been asked what are the main essentials of a successful prime minister. Over and above communication and vigilance, there are two factors I have always mentioned. They are sleep, and a sense of history.
Harold Wilson
When great nations fear to expand, shrink from expansion, it is because their greatness is coming to an end. Are we, still in the prime of our lusty youth, still at the beginning of our glorious manhood, to sit down among the outworn people, to take our place with the weak and the craven? A thousand times no!
Theodore Roosevelt
The future is taking shape now in our own beliefs and in the courage of our leaders. Ideas and leadership – not natural or social “forces” – are the prime movers in human affairs.
George Roche III
The British prime minister will want to have a strong and positive relationship with European leaders always.
Michael Gove
My father was the prime minister and we had Tamil Nadu’s support.
H. D. Kumaraswamy
At the age of 31, I feel like I’m in my prime, baby.
Henry Cejudo
I don’t even watch Fox News usually in the prime time hours because I’m home with my kids and that’s more important to me.
Megyn Kelly
Post-bifurcation, I raised my voice and sat on an indefinite fast in Guntur in October 2015. Eight days into the fast, I was forcibly evicted by the police on the pretext that Prime Minister Narendra Modi was coming to Amaravati.
Y. S. Jaganmohan Reddy
On prime time entertainment television, scientists are most at risk. Ten percent of scientists featured in prime-time entertainment programming get killed, and five percent kill someone. No other occupational group is more likely to kill or be killed.
George Gerbner
I do prime time network shows like ‘Blue Bloods.’ I’ve done ‘Fringe,’ I’ve done ‘The Good Wife,’ done a lot of ‘The Mentalist.’
John Polson
I’d like to run for president. Or Prime Minister. I think I could do a better job.
Thom Yorke
You get a lot of people who are used to the stage and a lot of people who are used to prime time, and they can’t keep up with the pace. It’s so fast – you have to digest it, regurgitate it, spit it out, and then start over and move on to the next scene.
Greg Vaughan
Be on the alert to recognize your prime at whatever time of your life it may occur.
Muriel Spark
I’ve got a long way to go to being the ultimate best, but I think my time is now. And I’m starting to enter my prime.
Kevin Durant
The linden, in the fervors of July,
Hums with a louder concert. When the wind
Sweeps the broad forest in its summer prime,
As when some master-hand exulting sweeps
The keys of some great organ, ye give forth
The music of the woodland depths, a hymn
Of gladness and of thanks.
William C. Bryant
As prime minister, I changed Israel’s position on peace negotiations. I made it clear that we are ready to go along with Resolution 242 of the U.N. Security Council, which specifies withdrawal to secure and recognized boundaries in the context of peace.
Yitzhak Rabin
I am going to be prime minister.
Benny Gantz
I think all our leaders are utterly beneath us. You just watch ‘Prime Minister’s Questions’ and go: ‘How is this the best that we’ve got?’
Russell Howard
The prime role of a leader is to offer an example of courage and sacrifice.
Regis Debray
The idea of Jewish settlements under Palestinian sovereignty, as was suggested by someone in the Prime Minister’s office, is very dangerous and reflects an irrationality of values.
Naftali Bennett
I sometimes think that when the prime minister tries to select a weapon it is the boomerang he finds most effective.
John Smith
We were lucky that when we were making the transition from children’s to prime time a lot of other presenters our age shied away from that arena.
Declan Donnelly
The prime communities of the Southwest are survival communities. Their sustenance is governed by rainfall and wind direction. You can study little enclaves of plant materials, how they huddle together for protection. Some are nurse crops.
Antoine Predock
Baalbek is so beautiful. It is the heart of beauty in the Middle East – I want to embrace these people with my music. I will try so hard for them. Their president is a Christian, their prime minister is a Muslim. Music is for everyone.
Mstislav Rostropovich
George Clooney says he’s had sex with too many women to ever run for office. He was immediately made Prime Minister of Italy.
Conan O’Brien
I’m like, ‘Man, if I’m going to have this idle time, I might as well be in school, do something positive where I’m not just wasting my prime years and not getting something else in return.’ If I’m in school and training, that’s OK. I did that in college. It worked.
Aljamain Sterling
My great-grandfather was prime minister of Canada, and I had a very Edwardian upbringing. It was a beautiful, romantic way of growing up, until the family lost its money. And I decided to be bad and rough and find the streets rather than the gates.
Christopher Plummer
We have a prime minister, I’m the foreign minister, I’m trying to get on with the job of doing Australia’s foreign policy.
Kevin Rudd
When I was first named as Deputy Prime Minister, there was a feeling of shock that I should be chosen because I was labeled as being an ultra and very anti-Chinese.
Mahathir Mohamad
I thought I would be Prime Minister.
Gyles Brandreth
I grew up in a Hindu household but went to a Roman Catholic school. I grew up with a mother who said, ‘I’ll arrange a marriage for you at 18,’ but she also said that we could achieve anything we put our minds to an encourage us to dream of becoming prime minister or president
Indra Nooyi
Sincerity is the prime requisite in every approach to the God who … hates all hypocrisy, falsehood, and deceit.
Geoffrey B. Wilson
My job and my task as prime minister of Lebanon is to shield Lebanon from any instability like in Syria or Iraq or any other country that surrounds us. My task is to make sure that we have a country that is stable.
Saad Hariri
These years are still the years of my prime. It is important to recognise the years of one’s prime, always remember that.
Muriel Spark
I wanted to play in New York when I was in my prime and I was young, fierce, lock-down [defender]. Madison Square Garden, that would have been sick. But right now, China is way more adventurous for me.
Metta World Peace
The main essentials of a successful prime minister are sleep and a sense of history.
Harold Wilson
I am not entering politics to be another Knesset member. If I enter the political arena I want to be prime minister. Period.
Ami Ayalon
I have formulated several levels of protest in my ‘Sarabjit Bachao Andolan.’ The first level is to get the active participation of the entire Punjab entertainment industry. I am also formulating and framing letters to the Indian Prime Minister and President.
Raza Murad
You know, by the time you become the leader of a country, someone else makes all the decisions. … You may find you can get away with virtual presidents, virtual prime ministers, virtual everything.
William J. Clinton
I gather, young man, that you wish to be a Member of Parliament. The first lesson that you must learn is, when I call for statistics about the rate of infant mortality, what I want is proof that fewer babies died when I was Prime Minister than when anyone else was Prime Minister. That is a political statistic.
Winston Churchill
Prime Minister Sharon, Prime Minister Abbas, I urge you today to end the designs of those who seek destruction, annihilation and occupation, and I urge you to have the will and the courage to begin to realize our dreams of peace, prosperity and coexistence.
Abdullah II of Jordan
Frankly, everyone knows that Iain Duncan Smith is not making the impact we would all like him to be as our leader and is not making the necessary impact to carry credibility with the electorate as the alternative prime minister.
Crispin Blunt
We started playing the Baltimore Colts early, and I was still very impressed with Johnny Unitas, who just passed away recently. I thought he was one of the best quarterbacks at the time when I was very young, he was in his prime.
Bob Lilly
New Zealand, by the way, where I was ambassador, has had two women prime ministers – one from either party.
Carol Moseley Braun
It’s impossible to predict crises – or to control them once they hit – but you can absolutely prime yourself to ride them out as best as possible.
Neil Blumenthal
If Advaniji did not want, I would never have been Prime Minister.
Atal Bihari Vajpayee
Prayer is the one prime, eternal condition by which the Father is pledged to put the Son in possession of the world. Christ prays through His people. Had there been importunate, universal, and continuous prayer by God’s people, long ere this the earth had been possessed for Christ.
Edward McKendree Bounds
We were making new ones the second year. We were in syndication the second year. So we were on Saturday nights, prime time, every morning, and then they put it on Sunday evenings too. So it was all over the place.
Gavin MacLeod
In my day, I, myself, in my prime, in the late-’50s-mid-’70s I was about 270-275. After I broke my neck and I was in the hospital for a month or so, I dropped the weight to about 250 and I kept that weight until I retired.
Bruno Sammartino
The country’s image has improved ten-fold during Vajpayee’s prime ministership.
Sowcar Janaki
I am absolutely delighted to give my full support to Gordon as the next leader of the Labour Party and as prime minister and to endorse him fully.
Tony Blair
The progress in Iraq is still fragile. And it could still be reversed. Iraq still faces innumerable challenges, and they will be evident during what will likely be a difficult process as the newly elected Council of Representatives selects the next prime minister, president, and speaker of the council.
David Petraeus
In terms of career options, I didn’t think about MMA at all. I don’t know if I really thought it was a career path for many women. For someone like me, even in my prime, it wasn’t something I really considered.
Sharice Davids
The Prime Minister and the Chief Ministers are one team. The Cabinet Ministers and the State Ministers are another team. The Civil Servants at the Centre and the States are yet another team. This is the only way we can successfully develop India.
Narendra Modi
People innately have lots of solutions. It sounds like an obvious thing, but everyone thinks that they can be prime minister; everyone thinks that they can do a better job.
Mark Thomas
Stern fate and time Will have their victims; and the best die first, Leaving the bad still strong, though past their prime, To curse the hopeless world they ever curs’d Vaunting vile deeds, and vainest of the worst.
Ebenezer Elliott
I think, at 32, you are past your prime as a footballer.
Toni Kroos
If you make a defamatory allegation that the Prime Minister is guilty of criminal misappropriation of pension funds of Singaporeans, that’s a very serious matter.
Lee Hsien Loong
Once the country voted for Brexit, I wanted the prime minister to make a success of it, but I knew that unpicking 45 years of entwinement with the E.U. would be impossible without our elected lawmakers being fully involved.
Gina Miller
The first right on earth is the right of the ego. Man’s first duty is to himself. His moral law is never to place his prime goal within the persons of others. His moral obligation is to do what he wishes, provided his wish does not depend primarily upon other men.
Ayn Rand
We the People’ are the prime movers of the Republic.
Ram Nath Kovind
There is no doubt that America is now the prime target of international communism.
J. Edgar Hoover
We are coming to a place where the road ends. From here on out, we will be making the road as we walk it, in ways we’ve never had to do before. We now have the job of forging our own evolutionary destiny, and being prime agents of the process of evolution here on Earth.
Tom Atlee
….shellfish are the prime cause of the decline of morals and the adaptation of an extravagant lifestyle.
Pliny the Elder
It is my hope that I could be not just a Prime Minister, but a Prime Minister for Aboriginal affairs, the first I imagine that we’ve ever had.
Yitzhak Rabin
Every time I meet Prime Minister Modi and listen to him and then see his actions, including GST, I see bold things that I don’t see in any other place. I am super impressed and optimistic.
Tim Cook
I was elected by the people of Australia as Prime Minister of Australia. I was elected to do a job, I intend to continue doing that job. I intend to continue doing it to the absolute best of my ability. Part of that job has been to steer this country through the worst economic crisis the world has seen in 75 years.
Kevin Rudd
Humility and resignation are our prime virtues.
John Dryden
I usually need a can of beer to prime me.
Norman Mailer
In the past, rulers led their troops into battle and, even in peacetime, called themselves fathers of their people. And modern politics retains abundant masculine rituals. Prime minister’s question time in Britain, for instance, is a stylised duel and tournament redolent of testosterone.
Linda Colley
I am my own woman…and was, long before I became Prime Minister. Attending to my family’s needs only made me stronger as a leader because if you know how to run a home and ensure each person’s particular need is met, it’s the best leadership training you can have.
Kamla Persad-Bissessar
I am an ambitious person, but I am not ambitious in the sense that I want jobs only for the sake of them… I am here to do things I think are worthwhile. I am always careful that the political positions I take are consistent with good policy. I would not want to be prime minister of Australia at any price.
Malcolm Turnbull
AC/DC is a prime example of taking that blues rock thing and just living in that world. They only really move the furniture around a little on each album, but it still works.
Joe Perry
…shellfish are the prime cause of the decline of morals and the adaptation of an extravagant lifestyle. Indeed of the whole realm of Nature the sea is in many ways the most harmful to the stomach, with its great variety of dishes and tasty fish.
Pliny the Elder
So you know, formally, what the government here is saying is that Israel’s prime minister announced the appointment on Twitter. He didn’t follow diplomatic protocol. But what we know is that it’s about much more than that. It is about who Dani Dayan is.
Lourdes Garcia-Navarro
After 150 years, Bristol’s prime music venue is to finally change its name and thereby cut its link to the infamous slave trader Edward Colston.
David Olusoga
Many humanists in the West are stirred by a sense of outrage at what professed Christians, past and present, have done; and this makes them see their humanism as a kind of crusade, with the killing of Christianity as its prime goal.
J. I. Packer
But grant, the virtues of a temp’rate prime
Bless with an age exempt from scorn or crime;
An age that melts with unperceived decay,
And glides in modest Innocence away
Samuel Johnson
I am an apolitical Prime Minister. Apart from elections, I don’t get involved into politics ever.
Narendra Modi
At the end of the day, the law is the same for the Prime Minister or a common man of India.
Akshaye Khanna
There’s another point that I wanted to mention here, particularly the engagement and commitment to Africa. For us Europeans, Africa as a neighboring continent is of prime importance. The development of African countries is in our very own vested interest.
Angela Merkel
The primary imagination I hold to be the living power and prime agent of all human perception, and as a repetition in the finite mind of the eternal act of creation in the infinite I Am.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
I think people say women come into their prime in their 40s. And then for some reason our society just wants to go… it’s like a dead flower.
Charlize Theron
For to be possessed of a vigorous mind is not enough; the prime requisite is rightly to apply it.
Rene Descartes
Women are secretaries of state and prime ministers – but people still don’t expect women to be involved in violence.
Mia Bloom
A prime minister’s job is to make sure the government works for those who have elected him, and not for big corporations.
Jack Layton
Industrialisation is necessary. But acquisition is by no means the only avenue through which it can be achieved. The Cochin Airport is a prime example of this. Instead of choosing to acquire the land, the State asked the private parties to negotiate with the landowners directly. The State merely acted as an arbitrator.
Jairam Ramesh
After ‘Mulk,’ I figured it’s your voice that people are connecting with. So then my voice became of prime importance to me for my films.
Anubhav Sinha
The reality is that we only have one person whom the public sees as appropriate to be prime minister, and that’s a shame. I think that if there were more, it would be better for everyone, including Netanyahu.
Reuven Rivlin
Denis Healey refused to contribute an article to the ‘Guardian’ about his intentions, and was punished by the electorate – and then all Labour MPs – for his presumption in assuming they already knew everything about him. He became famously the best prime minister we never had. Perhaps.
Simon Hoggart
There is a movement in club football, which I don’t necessarily consider a prime example of solidarity, because it leads us to conclude the rich are getting richer and they are using everything in the market to create an exodus from Africa.
Sepp Blatter
I’m not really managing the work-life balance, I’m just accepting that the work increases and the ordinary life has to decrease when you’re the prime minister.
Tony Abbott
The Canadian Prime Minister said Canada would lend the U.S. its full military support. You know what that means: Both tanks.
Jay Leno
If every man would make his prime concern the comfort and well-being of his wife and every wife make her chief concern the comfort and well-being of her husband, we would have very little divorce in the land.
Gordon B. Hinckley
The country is polarised between those who would pursue a hard Brexit, which is where the prime minister is, and Remain.
David Gauke
The prime minister’s job is to captain his team, his party and his government.
John Bercow
I have never been bribed as a Prime Minister.
Kamisese Mara
I would not wish to be Prime Minister, dear.
Margaret Thatcher
The destruction of the inducement to invest by an excessive liquidity-preference was the outstanding evil, the prime impediment to the growth of wealth, in the ancient and medieval worlds.
John Maynard Keynes
Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev can no longer attend concerts by his favorite group Deep Purple without having to fear that the musicians will wear T-shirts with Pussy Riot written on them.
Alexei Navalny
When you’re asked/told to come to Canberra by your Prime Minister, in the country I grow up in, you obey that.
Andrew Forrest
I want to be in my prime making the big money, enough money to put away so I can do something.
Aljamain Sterling
I was lucky enough to know Prince Philip in his prime – the most dynamic man I have ever met. And I was privileged to know him almost to the end.
Gyles Brandreth
The Prime Minister wins debate after debate and loses battle after battle. The country is beginning to say that he fights debates like a war and the war like a debate.
Aneurin Bevan
People who say it was her father who prepared her for the post of prime minister, it was her father who launched her, are wrong.
Indira Gandhi
I think the modernization of Chinese economy and Chinese society is a prime concern.
Manmohan Singh
Sure, sexism is not confined to the Conservatives. Harriet Harman has suggested that Gordon Brown didn’t make her deputy prime minister because she was a woman.
Layla Moran
There is another movie I love that always sticks with me and influenced me called “Frankie” starring Diane Kruger as a model past her prime trying to make it work and going crazy from how she is treated.
Zoe Cassavetes
The child is innocence and forgetting, a new beginning, a game, a wheel rolling on its own, a prime movement, a sacred Yes.
Friedrich Nietzsche
The prime minister has chosen to acknowledge publicly the sovereignty of God and the claim of God on her life. Hers is the challenge to live up to that claim.
Philip Robinson
Tony Abbott is the Prime Minister of Australia. Tony Abbott will be coming to Victoria on a regular basis.
Denis Napthine
A man with a mouth like a mastiff, a brow like a mounta

A man with a mouth like a mastiff, a brow like a mountain, and eyes like burning antracite – that was Dan’l Webster in his prime.
Stephen Vincent Benet
I’m proud to say that we are the party of Canada’s first prime minister, the father of our federation, and the visionary who made this land possible.
Andrew Scheer
You’re running to be prime minister – it’s hard to be the person who makes jokes.
Ed Miliband
Today, the growers are like a punch-drunk old boxer who doesn’t know he’s past his prime. The times are changing. The political and social environment has changed. The chickens are coming home to roost – and the time to account for past sins is approaching.
Cesar Chavez
Manmohan Singh, during his tenure as Prime Minister, said that Muslims have first right over the resources of this country. Where will the Dalits, backward, women, tribal, and others go?
Yogi Adityanath
It is a shame and the moral bankruptcy of the Congress that its leaders, who were at the forefront of the freedom struggle and fought against foreigners, should think of having a foreigner as the Prime Minister.
J. Jayalalithaa
If Margaret Thatcher had been Prime Minister at the time, there would have been no Treaty of Maastricht.
Douglas Hurd
America is replicated at every level of British life, from the taxi driver to the prime minister.
Timothy Garton Ash
In this time of challenge, I am asking the prime minister to address Congress on the grave threats radical Islam and Iran pose to our security and way of life.
John Boehner
Already, even before we have left the EU, Brexit is damaging our country, our economy, our society and our standing in the world – damage that will be worsened by the kind of ruinous no deal being pledged by some who aspire to become prime minister.
Betty Boothroyd
What MSNBC is, what cable news prime time has become in the shows that get the ratings, is the oped page of the newspaper.
Lawrence O’Donnell
The House has noticed the Prime Minister’s remarkable transformation in the past few weeks, from Stalin to Mr. Bean.
Vince Cable
If Justice is pictured blindfold, it is because she judges causes, not men, and not because the prime faculty of an arbitrator is lack of discernment.
Charles Wagner
I want to leave New Zealand in better shape than I found it. I know the job of prime minister is not forever and I’m going to do the best I can every day to make that difference.
John Key
India is a huge democracy. Prime Minister [Narendra] Modi has ambitions to try to fix the infrastructure, the rules, taxes, education, and to lift up the Indian people. And we’re hopeful that that’s going to create positive momentum.
Jamie Dimon
Being prime minister is not a job to be performed with an eye for the exit.
Douglas Alexander
While security of national leadership is of paramount significance, expenditure on permanent civil structures at the family home of the prime minister and chief minister from public exchequer will be a burden on their conscience.
Shehbaz Sharif
[Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu, in his rather undiplomatic way, demanded that Washington bring words and actions together into a coherent, 100 percent pro-Israeli policy. Obama, apparently still having faith in a “two-state solution,” refused to do this.
Lawrence Davidson
The successful conduct of economic policy is possible only if there is – and is seen to be – full agreement between the Prime Minister and the Chancellor of the Exchequer.
Nigel Lawson
There are prime examples – me, Natasha Jonas, Tony Bellew, Toni Duggan – who have come from areas around Liverpool that haven’t been the wealthiest. But we’ve also been determined to get out and then to give back.
Nikita Parris
The humanitarian wishes to be a prime mover in the lives of others. He cannot admit either the divine or the natural order, by which men have the power to help themselves. The humanitarian puts himself in the place of God.
Isabel Paterson
What kind of signal is Prime Minister Narendra Modi giving by closeting himself with tainted politicians and financial fraud-accused of YSR Congress undergoing trial?
N. Chandrababu Naidu
Don’t you think I would be a worthy replacement for you, Madam Prime Minister? You have a long nose. So have I. But I don’t poke my nose into other people’s affairs.
Sam Manekshaw
It was an honor and a thrill to have the chance to meet His Holiness, Pope Benedict, and then to have lunch with Prime Minister Berlusconi…. I think Italy and the U. S. have a very strong friendship and relationship, and I’m proud of that.
Laura Bush
The problem of distinguishing prime numbers from composite numbers and of resolving the latter into their prime factors is known to be one of the most important and useful in arithmetic.
Carl Friedrich Gauss
Mr. President, prime ministers, let us have ambitions: ambitions to move beyond the violence and occupation, to the day when two states, Palestine and Israel, can live together side by side in peace and security.
Abdullah II of Jordan
I think honestly that Michael [Gove] came to this decision[Prime Minister candidate] very late, that he needed to step up.
Nicky Morgan
My name is Mart Laar. I have been twice Prime Minister of Estonia, and I’m not an economist.
Mart Laar
You can’t pretend there has ever been anyone come close to doing what I did. Nobody you could name could touch me, and I’m talking about nobody who’s around now, nobody who was around in my prime, and nobody who was around any time you can mention outta your mouth.
Roy Jones Jr.
I would like to congratulate my partners in peace – Mr. Yitzhak Rabin, the Prime Minister of Israel, and Mr. Shimon Peres, the Israeli Foreign Minister – on being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
Yasser Arafat
No one likes when debate gets stifled, when these events get cancelled, whether it’s a former president or prime minister of Israel, whether it’s a discussion on a panel.
Andrew Scheer
Happy Days,’ ‘Laverne & Shirley,’ ‘Mork & Mindy’ – it takes no effort at all to conjure, physically, the profound excitement I felt watching these shows in prime time. I remember sitting on the floor, too close to the TV, rapt.
Paul F. Tompkins
Lord Rothschild had access to all manner of leaders and experts. He was responsible only to the Prime Minister and answerable to neither the electorate nor the civil service chiefs.
Derek Wilson
As a citizen of a democratic state, I have always believed that when a prime minister is elected in Israel, even those who voted against him at the polls are obligated to desire his success.
Ehud Olmert
