Ilhan Omar

Tony Parsons
In my books the technology that I choose to talk about has to serve the themes. What that means is that I end up having to cut out a lot of cool technology that would be really fun to describe and play with, but which would just confuse everybody. So in ‘Amped,’ I focus on neural implants.

The U.S. has a law on the books called the debt limit, but the name is misleading. The debt limit started in 1917 for the purpose of facilitating more national debt, not reducing it.

Salva Kiir Mayardit
My role is different than Freddie Blassie, the Grand Wizard, and Lou Albano’s, and Bobby Heenan’s, Jimmy Hart’s and J.J. Dillon’s as well. I legitimately consider myself Brock Lesnar’s advocate. That’s my primary purpose to serve to the WWE Universe.

Frans de Waal
I used to hear a lot that all I could do was hit a serve, I couldn’t volley, I can’t hit a backhand, I don’t return well, and then people would turn round and tell me I’m underachieving.
Andy Roddick
The ruling idea of the politician – stated rather bluntly – is that those who are opposed to him exist for the purpose of being made to serve his ends, if he can get power enough in his hands to force these ends upon them.
Auberon Herbert
My own American Dream was to serve my country as best I could and make a difference in America – and in the world.
Buzz Aldrin
I would like my celebrity to serve charity purposes, and to help people less well off.
Kylian Mbappe
You have to decide who you are going to serve – stockholders or your customers.
Jack Dangermond
Though we may not necessarily forfeit our lives in service to our God, we can certainly demonstrate our love for Him by how well we serve Him.
Thomas S. Monson
It is an honor to serve as the Ad Council’s next Chair of the Board of Directors. I am deeply committed to its mission of creating campaigns that improve everyday lives. I look forward to working with the Ad Council team and Board to continue to shine a light on the most important social issues of our day.
Margo Georgiadis
I’m very old-fashioned in some ways because of my father, who thought that being a public servant was an honor. Everyone must find a capacity in which they can serve, because we all benefit from society.
Kathleen Turner
We must strive to encourage East and West not only to move towards each other but also to encourage them to find a new philosophy, a philosophy which will serve as a tool determining the future of Planet Earth – our common and only shelter.
Nursultan Nazarbayev
I’ve committed myself to serve my constituents in South Shields and I have committed myself to British politics.
David Miliband
Real leadership is leaders recognizing that they serve the people that they lead.
Pete Hoekstra
Men should be judged not by their tint of skin, the gods they serve, the vintage they drink, nor by the way they fight, or love, or sin, but by the quality of the thought they think.
Adela Florence Nicolson
I love acting, but being an actor for hire only serves so much, and then you want to fill your well up again and be charged by something else.
Jennifer Aniston
What we need is congressional action to establish a federal principle of fiduciary duty – encapsulated by the phrase ‘no man can serve two masters.’
John C. Bogle
I just try to love and serve everyone, and bring everyone water, and lend an ear; that’s what Jesus said to do.
Anne Lamott
You kind of live and die by the serve.
Pete Sampras
We want to serve the country. We want to help the country get stronger.
Doug McMillon
Most people who work at home find they do not have the benefit of receptionists who serve as personal guards.
Judith Martin
If we had to pose for every single person at the Eat & Greets, we wouldn’t get to speak to anyone that’s there, and we definitely wouldn’t get to serve them food.
Zac Brown
But it is well to remember that we are dealing with nations every one of which has a direct individual interest to serve, and there is grave danger in an unshared idealism.
Henry Cabot Lodge
When I met my husband, I refused to invite him home for Passover because I was embarrassed my mother might serve all the catered dishes in the wrong order.
Erica Jong
If my acceptance of the office of Governor would serve my country, though my administration would be attended with the loss of personal credit and reputation, I would cheerfully undertake it.
Christopher Gadsden
I promised to carry on Jeff Session’s legacy of fighting for the conservative values we believe in. I promised to help pass the Trump agenda and serve the people’s interest, not the special interests. And I promised to help Donald Trump drain the swamp in Washington.
Luther Strange
Bureaucracies are inherently antidemocratic. Bureaucrats derive their power from their position in the structure, not from their relations with the people they are supposed to serve. The people are not masters of the bureaucracy, but its clients.
Alan Keyes
The decision to serve a mission will shape the spiritual destiny of the missionary, his or her spouse, and their posterity for generations to come. A desire to serve is a natural outcome of one’s conversion, worthiness, and preparation.
Russell M. Nelson
Broadcasters have a responsibility to serve the public interest and protect Americans from objectionable content, particularly during the hours when children are likely to be watching.
Bart Gordon
A goal is not always meant to be reached, it often serves simply as something to aim at.
Bruce Lee
I was in elective politics for 24 years. I’ve made four national races, two for President, two for Vice President. I have found there are other ways to serve, and I’m enjoying them.
Al Gore
I want to serve the people.
Malala Yousafzai
The government serves the people – not vice-versa.
Joe Wilson
Although all the good arts serve to draw man’s mind away from vices and lead it toward better things, this function can be more fully performed by this art, which also provides extraordinary intellectual pleasure.
Nicolaus Copernicus
There are two kinds of people one can call reasonable: those who serve God with all their heart because they know him, and those who seek him with all their heart because they do not know him.
Blaise Pascal
There is no greater honour than to serve Canadians.
Kim Campbell
Paul and I were both struggling actors. One night he would serve me in a restaurant, and the next night I would serve him. It was what out of work actors did.
David Soul
I write scripts to serve as skeletons awaiting the flesh and sinew of images.
Ingmar Bergman
Death is not only an unusually severe punishment, unusual in its pain, in its finality and in its enormity, but is serves no penal purpose more effectively than a less severe punishment.
William J. Brennan, Jr.
I think there is a difference between Slate and Salon. I think we both serve important functions on the Internet. As more and more Websites disappear, I’m thankful Slate is still around because it makes things less lonely.
David Talbot
I’m an expert on the NewsHour and it isn’t how I practice journalism. I am not involved in the story. I serve only as a reporter or someone asking questions. I am not the story.
Jim Lehrer
If the undocumented have to work hard to attain citizenship, those of us who already are citizens should have to work hard to sustain it. We should all have to serve more, vote more, build more, and do more for our country.
Eric Liu
Our goal is to be able to serve our future customers. To do that, we need to build a strong and capable e-commerce business – but also to strengthen what we’re doing in stores.
Doug McMillon
Thus they have an idol that they petition for victory in war; another for success in their labors; and so for everything in which they seek or desire prosperity, they have their idols, which they honor and serve.
Hernan Cortes
We can serve our customers well only if our buying jobs are right. You cannot sell if you haven’t ordered wanted goods into your store.
James Cash Penney
A lot of restaurants serve good food, but they don’t have very good service.
Wolfgang Puck
I support allowing homosexuals to serve openly in our military and eliminating the ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ policy.
Ed Case
Securing a sustainable, safe food supply and supporting the agriculture industry at home and abroad enables the United States to serve as a global leader in national security.
Will Hurd
I employ case studies of failure into my courses, emphasizing that they teach us much more than studies of success. It is not that success stories cannot serve as models of good design or as exemplars of creative engineering. They can do that, but they cannot teach us how close to failure they are.
Henry Petroski
Tom Foley was a statesman, and it was a privilege to serve under him when he was the Speaker of the House. He loved our country. He was a gentleman. I had the privilege of seeing him a couple days before he passed away.
Nancy Pelosi
The more that Japanese players go to the big leagues to play and succeed, the more that will serve to inspire young kids in Japan to want to become baseball players when they grow up.
Ichiro Suzuki
I’ve tried to handle winning well, so that maybe we’ll win again, but I’ve also tried to handle failure well. If those serve as good examples for teachers and kids, then I hope that would be a contribution I have made to sport. Not just basketball, but to sport.
Mike Krzyzewski
For those who have made the ultimate sacrifice, we are grateful that such men and women were among us. For those who continue to serve, we honor their commitment. For those who return to civilian life, we honor their service.
Steve Buyer
We are stronger because we recognize that government isn’t the sole answer to the most important questions, and we welcome community and faith based organizations as partners to serve the needs of Florida families.
Jeb Bush
In all secrets there is a kind of guilt, however beautiful or joyful they may be, or for what good end they may be set to serve. Secrecy means evasion, and evasion means a problem to the moral mind.
Gilbert Parker
When I do entertain, in the summer, which is rare, I receive my guests on the front porch, set up wicker trays found at Pottery Barn, and serve iced beverages. Anytime I do welcome friends, it’s always a tray of canapes or Planters peanuts, jellied candy from Paris, and a good bottle of Sancerre.
Andre Leon Talley
It’s an honor to be chosen to serve as Mayor Hancock’s deputy mayor. This position comes with great responsibility, but should the need arise, I know I am up to the challenge.
Cary Kennedy
I have nothing against interviews. I don’t pursue them. When people I work for deem it appropriate, I’m perfectly willing to serve.
Tommy Lee Jones
The criteria for serving one’s country should be competence, courage and willingness to serve. When we deny people the chance to serve because of their sexual orientation, we deprive them of their rights of citizenship, and we deprive our armed forces the service of willing and capable Americans.
Dianne Feinstein
The serve, I think, is the most difficult, you know, in terms of coordination, because you got the two arms going, and you got to toss it up at the right time so.
Roger Federer
I don’t think that the war serves U.S. interests. I think Osama bin Laden’s interests and the Iranian interests are very much served by it, and it’s becoming a huge drain on our resources both material and political.
William Odom
I love to cook, it’s one of my most favorite things in the world. That’s why I stopped being a vegetarian – I didn’t want to serve people things I hadn’t tasted myself.
Claudia Black
I’m probably one of the only people who has voted for the speaker of the House but didn’t serve in Congress.
Martha McSally
Sometimes you can really serve well and win the match because of the serve. I have the opposite thing now, so it’s kind of hard. I can just really play with my forehand and backhand.
Agnieszka Radwanska
I was fine being in the closet at the beginning of my career because that’s what you were supposed to be – until I realized that it didn’t serve anybody, and I was left feeling utterly empty. This is who I am, so I’ve gotta be me.
Billy Porter
The writer may very well serve a movement of history as its mouthpiece, but he cannot of course create it.
Karl Marx
But I still serve pretty big and that’s one of my biggest weapons, so if my shoulder holds up and I can count on it, I can win a few matches and then you never know how the other guys are going to react to the fatigue and the length of the matches.
Guy Forget
Ab-Souls Outro’ serves as a jazzy, spoken summation of ‘Section.80’s themes. Guest cohort Ab-Soul opens the song with one urgent verse after another: Flowing freely like the saxophone behind him, his words advocate veering outside life’s most predictable pathways.
Anthony Fantano
Donald Trump will never turn his back on those who serve and protect us at home and abroad.
Mike Pence
As my parents taught me, by both words and deeds, a life of public services is as much a gift to the person who serves as it is to those he’s serving.
Merrick Garland
You’ve got people who didn’t serve with John Kerry saying they did serve with John Kerry in the boat. With George Bush, we can’t find anybody who did serve with him.
Mark Shields
A part of the placidity of the South comes from the sense of well-being that follows the heart-and-body-warming consumption of breads fresh from the oven. We serve cold baker’s bread to our enemies, trusting that they will never impose on our hospitality again.
Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings
Yet, when child sex offenders are brought to justice and serve time for their offenses, they are often released into unsuspecting communities and left free to resume their sexual attacks.
Bob Ney
The more choices we give patients affected by depression, the better we will serve them.
Carlos Santana
I didn’t plan to be a politician. The founder of our country, David Ben-Gurion, called me from the kibbutz to serve in the underground. We were short of manpower, short of arms. I was 24 years old. I was supposed to serve my country for one or two years. I am 89 years old this year, and I keep going.
Shimon Peres
All I did was pray to God, every day. In prison camp, the main prayer was, ‘Get me home alive, God, and I’ll seek you and serve you.’ I came home, got wrapped up in the celebration, and forgot about the hundreds of promises I’d made to God.
Louis Zamperini
Our bodies are truly the result of what we eat, what we think about, and the exercise we receive. If we are not wise, these little things can soon cause major health problems that will limit our success and ability to serve.
Joseph B. Wirthlin
Senator Jon Kyl has given all of the eventual candidates in this race an excellent model of how to best serve Arizona and the country. He’s set the bar extremely high, and I’ll do my best to meet that standard.
Jeff Flake
The growth model China has relied on for the last 30 years – one predicated on low-cost exports to the rest of the world and investment in resource intensive heavy manufacturing – is unlikely to serve it well in the next 30 years.
Gary Locke
Whenever you play dance music, it serves a function. It becomes a utility; you have to worry about the tempos and what you’re going to play for people. But when you’re playing for listening, you’re free.
Stan Kenton
Jellyfish serve as a model for bioengineers for the same reason yeast were once so valuable to geneticists: they’re simple to deconstruct.
Jeffrey Kluger
When I sell liquor, it’s called bootlegging; when my patrons serve it on Lake Shore Drive, it’s called hospitality.
Al Capone
Go far – too far you cannot, still the farther. The more experience finds you: and go sparing. One meal a week will serve you, and one suit, through all your travels; for you’ll find it certain.
John Fletcher
I think about the audience in the sense that I serve as my own audience. I have to please myself the way, if I saw the movie in a theater, I would be pleased. Do I think about catering to an audience? No.
Shane Black
But the other thing is that I feel very confident in the individual pilots. They are tremendous individuals. They are individuals that have sworn to protect and defend our very citizens. That’s why we serve.
Hugh Shelton
As we enjoy great advantages from the inventions of others, we should be glad of an opportunity to serve others by any invention of ours, and this we should do freely and generously.
Benjamin Franklin
I respect very much the role of the media in our society; I think they can be very, very helpful. They serve as a very useful check, sort of a watchdog over the actions of the government, and I respect that.
Alberto Gonzales
I’m from the Vietnam generation. I didn’t serve.
Al Franken
I respect people who feel things passionately. I do. But when someone is a judge, that is not what they should bring to the bench. It is not really passion, except in rare instances, that serves the bench well. It is, rather, an ability to understand the law and follow it.
Chuck Schumer
In Illinois, community, migrant, homeless and public housing health centers operate 268 primary care sites and serve close to 1 million patients every year.
Jan Schakowsky
My greatest honor was to serve my country.
Marcus Luttrell
You can expect to find these four priorities – education, economic vitality, efficiency in government and the protection of families – woven into my decisions as Governor. They will serve as my compass as I work with you to chart a future course for our state.
Dave Heineman
The horrific cases in Ferguson, in Staten Island with the death of Eric Garner, and all across the country serve as stark reminders that we must have a say in who polices us, and how that policing is done. We must, we must, let our voices be heard on Election Day.
Al Sharpton
Mayonnaise: One of the sauces which serve the French in place of a state religion.
Ambrose Bierce
I have lived a long life, and I am proud that I spend the whole of my life in the service of my people. I am only proud of this and nothing else. I shall continue to serve until my last breath, and when I die, I can say, that every drop of my blood will invigorate India and strengthen it.
Indira Gandhi
I always serve the writer first because I’m English trained, even though I’m American.
Robert Englund
I don’t want euro bonds that serve to mutualize the entire debt of the countries in the euro zone. That can only work in the longer-term. I want euro bonds to be used to finance targeted investments in future-oriented growth projects. It isn’t the same thing. Let’s call them ‘project bonds’ instead of euro bonds.
Francois Hollande
Know how to ‘cling’ to him in prayer, and then you will see the face of Christ more clearly in those whom you are called to serve.
Basil Hume
I personally read criticism – at least by writers I enjoy – to stimulate a conversation in my own mind, and I like to think that’s the function I serve for others.
Ben Brantley
If you need me to tell you that if you serve God, you’ll get a Mercedes, you’re lost.
Paul Washer
If you make the choice to serve the public, public service, then serve the public, not yourself.
Jack Abramoff
Sometimes a noble failure serves the world as faithfully as a distinguished success.
Edward Dowden
You can’t serve up hearts like cherries jubilee.
Leonard Bailey
To be a good artist, you have to serve the work of art and allow it to be what it is supposed to be.
Larry Wall
Continuity is at the heart of conservatism: ecology serves that heart.
Garrett Hardin
We come to love those we serve. If we choose to begin to serve the Master out of even a glimmer of faith, we will begin to know Him. We will come to know His purposes for the people we serve for Him. Even when they do not accept our offer to serve them, we will feel His appreciation if we persist.
Henry B. Eyring
I am going to hold serve the majority of the time. It is nice to have a little time to return serve.
Pete Sampras
The monarchy is a part of the state. It exists to serve the people.
Heather Brooke
When you are in local government, you are on the ground, and you are looking into the eyes and hearts of the people you are there to serve. It teaches you to listen; it teaches you to be expansive in the people with whom you talk to, and I think that that engagement gives you political judgment.
Valerie Jarrett
I was kind of like the Rhea Perlman of the bar. I was like Carla on ‘Cheers.’ People were more afraid of me. There was a point where I got a little surly. There were only so many chicken wings I could serve before losing the smile on my face.
Melissa Rauch
Normally, I’ve found in my life that the louder you speak, probably, the less of a fighter you are. All the fighters I’ve had a chance and the honor to serve with didn’t pat themselves on the back, were pretty humble men and women.
David Dewhurst
No leader, however strong, can succeed at anything of national importance or significance unless he has the support and cooperation of the people he is tasked to lead and sworn to serve.
Rodrigo Duterte
Inner-life questions are the kind everyone asks, with or without benefit of God-talk: ‘Does my life have meaning and purpose?’ ‘Do I have gifts that the world wants and needs?’ ‘Whom and what shall I serve?’ ‘Whom and what can I trust?’ ‘How can I rise above my fears?’
Parker Palmer
Christians were instructed to serve others, and the thanksgiving was for the grace of God and the fact that God offered a way for man to return to a positive relationship with Him.
John Clayton
The study of error is not only in the highest degree prophylactic, but it serves as a stimulating introduction to the study of truth.
Walter Lippmann
I wish I could undo what I did at Enron but I can’t. I understand that I deserve punishment. Your honor, I accept the prison sentence that you are about to impose and will serve it without bitterness.
Andrew Fastow
I am convinced that if you serve great value, people will come to you.
Eric Ripert
I was kind of a misfit, actually. When you’re young, you want to be like everybody else, and I was like nobody else. I couldn’t sit still. I was impulsive. I still am. What is now called a ‘talent’ did not serve me well as a child. I didn’t have friends. I was really an outcast.
Howie Mandel
Interest in business ethics courses has surged, and student activities at leading business schools are more focused than ever before on making business serve long-term social values.
Peter Singer
As I assume my responsibilities as your representative, I wish to assure you of my loyalty and devotions, as well of my determination to serve you and the people of Canada to the utmost of my abilities.
Romeo LeBlanc
I’m so proud to represent the people of South Florida. I was so honored when President Obama asked me to serve as chair of the Democratic Party. But there’s one job I’m even more proud of, and that’s being a mom to my three kids, Rebecca, Jake and Shelby.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz
I don’t think there is any good answer to the question why shouldn’t gays and lesbians who want to serve their country be allowed to do it.
John Bolton
As the first Member of Congress from western Washington to serve on the House Agriculture Committee in over 50 years, I am proud to represent the needs of our agriculture community.
Rick Larsen
I am faithfully devoted to the Republic but will not serve it at the expense of my conscience and my honor.
Toussaint Louverture
If we continue to seek learning to serve God and His children better, it is a blessing of great worth. If we begin to seek learning to exalt ourselves alone, it leads to selfishness and pride, which will take us away from eternal life.
Henry B. Eyring
Femininity is part of the God-given divinity within each of you. It is your incomparable power and influence to do good. You can, through your supernal gifts, bless the lives of children, women, and men. Be proud of your womanhood. Enhance it. Use it to serve others.
James E. Faust
As Bill Clinton said so eloquently at the convention, during Vietnam there was a chance to serve; there was a chance not to serve.
Mark Shields
The time will come, without my seeking it, that my words will almost serve as law. If I ask a certain thing, it will be done. If I don’t want something, it will not be done.
Sun Myung Moon
I think that passion is the secret ingredient that drives hard work and excellence. My passion is to serve the public: to be in the arena of public policy, to have the opportunity to solve problems for our country, to be in a position where I can make a difference.
Kelly Ayotte
Do those serving life sentences deserve access to educational opportunities never having a future beyond bars? The answer is yes and necessitates that in-prison education serves additional goals beyond reducing recidivism.
Clint Smith
The state exists to serve and protect every citizen, regardless of colour, creed, race or religion – and the welfare state should exist to and protect the populace in the same non-discriminatory and universal manner.
Mehdi Hasan
If nominated, I will not run; if elected, I will not serve.
William Tecumseh Sherman
I have a whole, whole lot of respect for the men and women that serve our country.
Sam Hunt
When I was a CIA officer we would have meetings and you don’t know what people’s politics are… We were there to serve a mission that we were focused on that mission.
Abigail Spanberger
This election marks a significant moment in Haiti; it not only serves as the basis of hope along the road to democracy, but also serves as a testament to the resolve and character of the Haitian people during their long struggle for peace, reconciliation, and prosperity.
Kendrick Meek
Music in itself carries a whole set of messages which are very, very rich and complex, and the words either serve to exclude certain ones or point up certain others.
Brian Eno
When my mother had to get dinner for 8 she’d just make enough for 16 and only serve half.
Gracie Allen
Golf… is the infallible test. The man who can go into a patch of rough alone, with the knowledge that only God is watching him, and play his ball where it lies, is the man who will serve you faithfully and well.
P. G. Wodehouse
Emotions serve characters’ purposes. That is their motivation.
Ang Lee
Stories serve the purpose of consolidating whatever gains people or their leaders have made or imagine they have made in their existing journey thorough the world.
Chinua Achebe
Screen work always boils down to that moment between the camera and the actor or the actors. It always boils down to that, ultimately. You serve the camera.
Alfred Molina
I’ve never been a soldier. In Denmark, at 18, as a male, you go in a draw, and if they pick you, you go and serve for a year. I didn’t.
Tobias Lindholm
Those who set out to serve both God and Mammon soon discover that there is no God.
Logan Pearsall Smith
We can serve as bridges, we who identify as hyphenated Americans, because we are all global citizens, and that’s why being cognizant of our histories is important.
Tamlyn Tomita
Those who set out to serve both God and Mammon soon discover that there isn’t a God.
Logan Pearsall Smith
Not every movie has to serve as every audience member’s need for completion.
Todd Phillips
There are good people in the lobbying industry. Lobbyists can serve a very useful purpose.
Kevin Spacey
The serve, I was too young and too small and… not enough powerful to have a good serve when I was young, so my forehand was always my signature shot. So I used to always run around my backhand, you know, use my forehand as much as I could, and so that’s why I think it’s my strength also today, you know.
Roger Federer
Life in cyberspace is often conducted in primitive frontier conditions, but it is a life which, at its best, is more egalitarian than elitist and more decentralized than hierarchical. It serves individuals and communities, not mass audiences, and it is extraordinarily multi-faceted in the purposes to which it is put.
Mitch Kapor
I think as a young actress, it’s very rare that you read something where you’re not either ‘the girl’ or there to serve some romantic purpose in a male dominated cast.
Sienna Miller
Nevertheless, this type of propaganda has a special value, for it serves to convince those who sign the appeal, of the necessity for carrying on propaganda; so a corps of propagandists, if I may use the term, is thus trained.
Fredrik Bajer
Many years ago, it was my opportunity to serve as president of the Canadian Mission. There we had a branch with very limited priesthood. We always had a missionary presiding over the branch. I received a strong impression that we needed to have a member of the branch preside there.
Thomas S. Monson
Was it not through pride that the devil became the devil? Christ wanted to serve. The devil wanted to rule.
Ezra Taft Benson
I lied about serving in Vietnam, and I’m sorry. I did not mean to take away from the actions and the sacrifices of the ones who did really serve there… I did steal valor. That was very wrong of me. There is no real excuse for that.
Brian Dennehy
Additionally, Smart Irrigation Month serves to recognize advances in irrigation technology and practices that produce not only more but also higher quality plants with less water.
Jim Costa
Genius without religion is only a lamp on the outer gate of a palace; it may serve to cast a gleam of light on those that are without, while the inhabitant sits in darkness.
Hannah More
Memorial Day isn’t just about honoring veterans, its honoring those who lost their lives. Veterans had the fortune of coming home. For us, that’s a reminder of when we come home we still have a responsibility to serve. It’s a continuation of service that honors our country and those who fell defending it.
Pete Hegseth
We’re going to have to find a way to serve our constituents and our taxpayers better and quicker and more accurately with fewer workers. I’m convinced we can do it and we don’t have a choice.
Kevin Brady
If we win, we’ll make history, and I’ll serve you on the Agriculture Committee.
George Nethercutt
Success will always be measured by the extent to which we serve the buying public.
James Cash Penney
As someone who worked hard for a Labour victory in the 90s, do I regret it? Not really. It was bound to happen. And it’ll happen with the next government, and the one after it. Because all governments serve us. They serve the filth.
Stephen Fry
I just want to serve people. I know it sounds like a simple cliche.
Tim Kaine
Tom DeLay ought to go back to Houston where he can serve his jail sentence.
Howard Dean
I’m very grateful and proud of the progress Yahoo! has made over the past year. When I took the position as chairman, I told the board that my intention was to serve for one year in order to help Yahoo! during a critical time of transformation.
Alfred Amoroso
A saint serves others, knowing that the more one serves, the greater the opportunity for the Spirit to sanctify and purify.
Russell M. Nelson
We treat our people like royalty. If you honor and serve the people who work for you, they will honor and serve you.
Mary Kay Ash
But it so happens, and it will ever happen so, that they who have lived to serve their country – no matter how weak their efforts may have been – are sure to receive the thanks and blessings of its people.
Thomas Francis Meagher
Here’s a little newsflash for those reporters and commentators: I’m not going to Washington to seek their good opinion. I’m going to Washington to serve this great country.
Sarah Palin
Twenty-five million veterans are living among us today. These men and women selflessly set aside their civilian lives to put on the uniform and serve us.
Steve Buyer
As 17th U.S. Surgeon General, I was privileged to serve as the nation’s doctor. I focused much of my time on promoting proven programs and individual steps that lead to good health.
Richard Carmona
Developed countries should support developing countries in tackling climate change. This not only is their responsibility, but also serves their long-term interests.
Hu Jintao
My natural inclination to be improv rather than an educated character serves me well.
Gary Vaynerchuk
I don’t know what your destiny will be, but one thing I know: the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who will have sought and found how to serve.
Albert Schweitzer
You gotta question the purpose you serve for those who invite themselves into your life. Learn who you are and always question the motive. No one knows you the way you do.
Brent Faiyaz
It’s pretty rare for me to be someplace that serves hot dogs and not eat one.
Joey Chestnut
However, it must always remain a dialogue, and never an imposition of the church’s own convictions and methods. Propose, not impose. To serve, and not to dominate.
Claudio Hummes
Pictures may serve as helps to religion but are only an appendix to idolatry, for the people must be taught to believe in false gods and in the power of saints before they will learn to worship their images.
Horace Walpole
To serve is beautiful, but only if it is done with joy and a whole heart and a free mind.
Pearl S. Buck
Greatness lies, not in being strong, but in the right using of strength; and strength is not used rightly when it serves only to carry a man above his fellows for his own solitary glory. He is the greatest whose strength carries up the most hearts by the attraction of his own.
Henry Ward Beecher
Women’s rights are nothing but a part of the bigger picture, which is human rights. Women are trusted with the lives of their kids, even serve as teachers and doctors, but they aren’t trusted with their own lives.
Manal al-Sharif
A book comes and says, ‘Write me.’ My job is to try to serve it to the best of my ability, which is never good enough, but all I can do is listen to it, do what it tells me and collaborate.
Madeleine L’Engle
Fashion should not be expected to serve in the stead of courage or character.
Loretta Young
And we can celebrate when we have a government that has earned back the trust of the people it serves… when we have a government that honors our Constitution and stands up for the values that have made America, America: economic freedom, individual liberty, and personal responsibility.
John Boehner
Good intentions can often lead to unintended consequences. It is hard to imagine a law intended for the workforce known to Henry Ford can serve the needs of a workplace shaped by the innovations of Bill Gates.
Tim Walberg
Choose beliefs that serve your soul – choose beliefs that serve the grander dream of who you choose to be.
Joy Page
One of my grandfathers, actually, having gone out there as a minister, decided he would better serve the people as a doctor. So at a very late age – at the age of 38 in fact – he changed course and decided to become a doctor.
Colin Firth
My dear citizens, fellow citizens, French people, this 6th of May, have just chosen change by bringing me the presidency of the French republic. I feel the honor, which has been given to me and the task, the important task faced beyond – in front of you to serve my country.
Francois Hollande
The only condition of fighting for the right to create is faith in your own vocation, readiness to serve, and refusal to compromise.
Andrei Tarkovsky
It is a privilege for me to serve the NFL. It is the only place I have ever wanted to work.
Roger Goodell
We all have a life story and a message that can inspire others to live a better life or run a better business. Why not use that story and message to serve others and grow a real business doing it?
Brendon Burchard
I have only you, the people of Belarus, and I will serve to the last of my days.
Alexander Lukashenko
The financial industry is a service industry. It should serve others before it serves itself.
Christine Lagarde
The more constraints one imposes, the more one frees one’s self. And the arbitrariness of the constraint serves only to obtain precision of execution.
Igor Stravinsky
Once something has outlived its usefulness in one area of life, its purpose for being in existence is no longer the same. The leaf that captures a stream of sunlight, and then transfers its energy to the tree, serves one purpose in the spring and summer, and another completely different one through the fall and winter.
Guy Finley
Hard as things seem today, they will be better in the next day if you choose to serve the Lord this day with your whole heart.
Henry B. Eyring
Of what use is the memory of facts, if not to serve as an example of good or of evil?
Alfred de Vigny
The library world is set up on this model where the library is a physical building and has a number of books and serves a geographical community.
Aaron Swartz
During the shooting of ‘Manthan,’ I lived in the hut, learnt to make cow dung cakes and milk a buffalo. I would carry the buckets and serve the milk to the unit to get the physicality of the character.
Naseeruddin Shah
People don’t want to serve apprenticeships any more. Kids expect to be paid and treated really well and all that guff before they’ve achieved anything. It doesn’t work like that. You have to spend five or six years being relatively rubbish and put up with it. For that you don’t deserve to be getting lottery money.
Daley Thompson
We must remember that politics is more than a power game. The core of politics in my view is to serve our citizens, to serve our fellow human beings.
Kjell Magne Bondevik
I’m not sure the risks I take are any different from what other writers take, since we all serve at the pleasure of the reader.
Stewart O’Nan
As a teacher I realize that what one learns in school doesn’t serve for very much at all, that the only thing one can really learn is self-understanding, and this is something that can’t be taught.
Laura Esquivel
Presented with the claims of nineteenth-century racist anthropology, a rational person will ask two sorts of questions: ‘What is the scientific status of the claims?’ ‘What social or ideological needs do they serve?’
Noam Chomsky
I am pro-death penalty, but not an enthusiastic death-penalty person. I think there’s a place for it, that it should serve as a deterrent.
Steve Largent
Because normally with Western cuisine, you’ll serve vegetables separate from the meat, so kids will eat the meat and never touch the vegetables.
Martin Yan
My father’s biggest achievement was to motivate the South Korean people, to show them we could become prosperous if we worked hard. He taught me to love my country, and serve my country.
Park Geun-hye
Who serves his country well has no need of ancestors.
Voltaire
It is important for us to be able to meet and greet the people that we serve. And if we start having police presence everywhere we go, it’s going to create a chilling effect on discourse, and it creates an incredible assault on the democratic process.
Jackie Speier
I’m committed to the people of Gujarat. I will devote each and every moment to serve my people of Gujarat.
Narendra Modi
For as well as I have loved thee heretofore, mine heart will not serve now to see thee; for through thee and me is the flower of kings and knights destroyed.
Thomas Malory
Not because they were servants were we so reserved, for many noble persons are forced to serve through necessity, but by reason the vulgar sort of servants are as ill bred as meanly born, giving children ill examples and worse counsel.
Margaret Cavendish
Connie Heermann is a Freedom Writer teacher. I believe she represents the best of what dedicated teachers can be because she chose to serve her students, not her school board.
Richard LaGravenese
God requires you individually to come up to the point, to make an entire surrender. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
Ellen G. White
When you’re asked by the president to serve, it’s awfully hard to say no, and I’m loyal.
Ryan Zinke
But in my district I have heard from law enforcement officials and across the State of Florida about how much this JAG funding helps them fight crime, and to protect and serve the citizens within their jurisdiction.
Cliff Stearns
I just serve big and play big. That’s my game style.
Nick Kyrgios
The names of Dingane and Bambata, Hintsa and Makana, Squngthi and Dalasile, Moshoeshoe and Sekhukhuni, were praised as the glory of the entire African nation. I hoped then that life might offer me the opportunity to serve my people and make my own humble contribution to their freedom struggle.
Nelson Mandela
One of those promises was to limit the size of government and to have the government serve the people – and not the other way around.
Scott Walker
Since 1850, burning of fossil fuels, coal, oil and natural gas has increased 100 times to produce energy as the world has industrialized to serve the world’s more than 6 billion and growing population.
John Olver
In my opinion eight years as president is enough and sometimes too much for any man to serve in that capacity.
Harry S Truman
I want to thank the efforts of the American Public Health Association and its 200-plus partners who have organized events around the Nation that serve to raise everyone’s awareness of the need to improve public health.
Lois Capps
Laws should be like clothes. They should be made to fit the people they serve.
Clarence Darrow
The best way to begin genuine bipartisanship to make America stronger is to work together on the real crises facing our country, not to manufacture an artificial crisis to serve a special interest agenda out of touch with the needs of Americans.
John F. Kerry
Any stigma, as the old saying is, will serve to beat a dogma.
Philip Guedalla
Ten years ago in Nairobi we said that the participation of women in the decision-making and appraisal processes of the United Nations was essential if the organization was to effectively serve women’s interests.
Jenny Shipley
Social Security, a critically important, great program which does serve as the cornerstone of support for senior citizens, now faces challenges that threaten its long-term stability and well-being. The facts are there. The facts are crystal clear.
Bill Frist
I have kind of a weird technique with zucchini. I cut it into small cubes; sweat it in olive oil, adding just a little oil at time so it crisps. Then I cover it with boiling water, not stock, which really brings out the flavor of the zucchini, add lemon, thyme, and serve it with burrata and a fried zucchini flower.
Tom Colicchio
Countries that will not tax their elite who expect us to come in and help them serve their people are just not going to get the kind of help from us that historically they may have.
Hillary Clinton
As a political spouse, I’ve found that my stoicism often serves me well.
Jill Biden
A nothing will serve just as well as a something about which nothing could be said.
Ludwig Wittgenstein
For me personally, as I said, I want to serve my country. I’ve done it once, and I’m still in the army, I feel as though I should get the opportunity to do it again.
Prince Harry
So I’m writing more highly personalized and intellectual music, and I think that’s good. It might take longer to find me, but I think that niche is perhaps underserved, so I’m going to serve that.
Paula Cole
Let me make a solemn pledge before all of you, before the whole world and before God, that I will devote all my energy and all I possess in my power to serve the people of Nigeria and humanity.
Olusegun Obasanjo
Having a Congress with a more diverse educational and professional background would serve the country well. And given the budget challenges facing America today, we might benefit from a few more cold, calculating problem solvers, and fewer courtroom impresarios.
John Sununu
Adopt responsibility for your own well-being, try to put your family together, try to serve your community, try to seek for eternal truth… That’s the sort of thing that can ground you in your life, enough so that you can withstand the difficulty of life.
Jordan Peterson
As specialists of apparent life, stars serve as superficial objects that people can identify with in order to compensate for the fragmented productive specialisations that they actually live.
Guy Debord
I serve a higher power, Jesus Christ. I make no apologies in saying that.
Rick Warren
I think that by and large chess players have been very kind. Like I said there have been a few incidents, but they certainly didn’t serve to bring me down any.
Maurice Ashley
One must know oneself. If this does not serve to discover truth, it at least serves as a rule of life and there is nothing better.
Blaise Pascal
These roads do not serve transportation alone, they also bind our Fatherland.
Fritz Todt
I teach 18- to 21-year-olds – the ‘Harry Potter’ generation. They grew up as voracious readers, reading books in this exploding genre. But at some point, I would love for them to give Umberto Eco or A.S. Byatt a try. I hope ‘A Discovery of Witches’ will serve as a kind of stepping-stone.
Deborah Harkness
I’m acting when I serve as a hostess, when I run my wig business. I was born to act, and life itself is the greatest part.
Eva Gabor
Before marriage, a man declares that he would lay down his life to serve you; after marriage, he won’t even lay down his newspaper to talk to you.
Helen Rowland
Overall, Korean pop serves as the foundation of my musical upbringing. As a result, the melodies that I create just exude that type of vibe.
G-Dragon
I don’t know what kind of God the rest of y’all are serving, but the God I serve says, ‘Mary, you need to be the hottest thing this year, and I’m gonna make sure you’re doing that.’
Mary J. Blige
It won’t be a question of how well-trained or well-equipped the army is but one of the authority it serves.
Adnan Pachachi
You have an audience that is fairly well grounded in the real world. You serve them and yourself best by making everything as real as possible.
Tamora Pierce
If women want to ensure themselves a meaningful place in the future, they need to be among those determining how the technology will be used. They need to be among those deciding whether it will be the great leveler or simply serve to worsen social divisions.
Anita Borg
At home I serve the kind of food I know the story behind.
Michael Pollan
I see myself as a person who wants to serve the constituents within my district and find a way to move those who are not in our position philosophically to our position.
Tim Scott
In my house, the Rose Parade and the Rose Bowl Game have always been a grand tradition for ringing in the New Year. To serve as Grand Marshal is a dream come true and I look forward to sharing the celebration with all of the fans and viewers worldwide.
Paula Deen
If you think the President was right to open the doors of American opportunity to young immigrants brought here as children who want to go to college or serve in the military, you should vote for Barack Obama.
William J. Clinton
The more one forgets himself – by giving himself to a cause to serve or another person to love – the more human he is.
Viktor E. Frankl
I don’t always prepare such rich meals. Sometimes I’ll just serve a simple quiche, salad and dessert for dinner. During the week I try to eat lightly.
Paul Lynde
I trust that when people meet, we meet for a transcendent reason, and that the challenges we face in life are always lessons that serve our soul’s growth.
Marianne Williamson
If I can wake up everyday before I die and know that I don’t have to serve anyone food or drinks, I will be happy!
Kelly Clarkson
Personal technology has given us the freedom of being able to do whatever we want – and in the case of celebrities and athletes, whomever they want. But it can also serve as a humiliation jetpack.
Sloane Crosley
The state is there to serve the citizen, not the reverse.
Dominic Grieve
It all comes back to the basics. Serve customers the best-tasting food at a good value in a clean, comfortable restaurant, and they’ll keep coming back.
Dave Thomas
I do serve on various boards and I’m very honest and frank, obviously. I am a very forthright person and I do, sort of, share my candid views on anything.
Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw
In the past, we spoke of poverty, misery only in the south. Now there is a lot of misery, a lot of bad that creates victims in the north as well. This has become manifest: the global system was not made to serve the good of all, but to serve multinational companies.
Ahmed Ben Bella
The thought of eating rabbit and squirrels doesn’t appeal to me. And that was on our table quite often as a kid. In your uppity restaurants, they serve a lot of rabbit. But I just can’t help but think of Peter. And deer, I can’t go there, because of Bambi.
Paula Deen
As the nation watches, Democrats and Republicans should reflect the interspersed character of America itself. Perhaps, by sitting with each other for one night, we will begin to rekindle that common spark that brought us here from 50 different states and widely diverging backgrounds to serve the public good.
Mark Udall
For the past seven years we have been cracking down on crime in Missouri, passing tougher laws for drug crimes and sex offenses and requiring prisoners to serve more time.
Mel Carnahan
The most overrated ingredients are garlic and extra-virgin olive oil. With garlic, it’s personal; I have never been that big of a fan of its flavor. As for extra-virgin olive oil, I do use it quite often but its ubiquity serves to overshadow many wonderful oils like pistachio, walnut, argan and even grapeseed.
Lela Rose
If you want a player to serve and volley more, you need to teach them to do that more, how to move at the net.
Andy Murray
We’ll serve, on a good Saturday night six or seven thousand people in all the restaurants, and it’s like, the percentages are that maybe one person’s not going to like what they get. And I can’t be there to fix it. I hate that. We’re in this business to make things that please people.
Todd English
If you need me to tell you that if you serve God, he’ll heal your body and fix every one of your problems, if you need that, you’re lost.
Paul Washer
I want to unite our people and our country. I will serve you with humility and force in the name of liberte, egalite, fraternite.
Emmanuel Macron
Security is something that serves Israeli interests and Palestinian interests. You have a common threat and you have a common enemy and it’s important to deal with that as partners.
Dennis Ross
The American work ethic is something to be admired. Our workforce, regardless of position, works hard to produce the best product and serve customers to the best of their ability.
Leonard Boswell
If we do not lay out ourselves in the service of mankind whom should we serve?
Abigail Adams
Without community service, we would not have a strong quality of life. It’s important to the person who serves as well as the recipient. It’s the way in which we ourselves grow and develop.
Dorothy Height
They are no longer going to serve you well. You have to commit. I think the biggest word is commit. I hear women say to me all the time, and men – I want to, I want to.
Suzanne Somers
I think it’s bad when people start booing between serves.
Serena Williams
I think punditry serves no purpose.
Nate Silver
The value of government to the people it serves is in direct relationship to the interest citizens themselves display in the affairs of state.
William Scranton
I love fashion. I love couture. I’m going to erect a shelf in my bedroom with an art light to be the spot for the shoes of the month. I want them to serve another purpose.
Sandra Bullock
Let the punishments of criminals be useful. A hanged man is good for nothing; a man condemned to public works still serves the country, and is a living lesson.
Voltaire
Politics is a game and a profession. It doesn’t really serve the people the politicians are supposed to serve.
Kit Harington
This is not the time to marry. My country is calling me. I have taken a vow to serve the country with my heart and soul.
Bhagat Singh
I shall argue that strong men, conversely, know when to compromise and that all principles can be compromised to serve a greater principle.
Andrew Carnegie
It is better for me to serve a charity as an actor or a voice, rather than at a luncheon being just a celebrity.
Ben Kingsley
For me, the real thing is make, serve and list in India. Which means we need manufacturing, we need services, and we need financial markets.
Uday Kotak
We employ the mind to rule, the body to serve.
Sallust
So many people are called but few serve as actors, you know what I mean?
Faye Dunaway
If workers are more insecure, that’s very ‘healthy’ for the society, because if workers are insecure, they won’t ask for wages, they won’t go on strike, they won’t call for benefits; they’ll serve the masters gladly and passively. And that’s optimal for corporations’ economic health.
Noam Chomsky
Friends are sometimes a big help when they share your feelings. In the context of decisions, the friends who will serve you best are those who understand your feelings but are not overly impressed by them.
Daniel Kahneman
I try to find little things that you can do to move the song along and things that serve the song.
Benmont Tench
Professional cinema image-taking should integrate, serve, interest, and enhance the story. I judge cinematography not just for a story well told but for what the story is.
Haskell Wexler
While I understand the passions and the anger that arise over the death of Michael Brown, giving into that anger by looting or carrying guns, and even attacking the police, only serves to raise tensions and stir chaos.
Barack Obama
Great customer service does not come by chance. It is the result of training and ensuring there are enough assistants to serve the customers.
Theo Paphitis
For the United States to recommit itself to the obligation that we undertook in the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty that many other states undertook, which was to work towards disarmament and the eventual elimination of nuclear weapons, is something that manifestly serves our national security interests.
Susan Rice
The men and women who serve this great nation, whether they are stationed in Iraq, Fort Riley, or the Korean Peninsula, or they serve us at home as our community first responders, serve because they believe in America.
Kathleen Sebelius
I think exercise tests us in so many ways, our skills, our hearts, our ability to bounce back after setbacks. This is the inner beauty of sports and competition, and it can serve us all well as adult athletes.
Peggy Fleming
Our obligation to the people we serve is too important to place politics and partisanship before progress and results.
Charlie Baker
History serves as a model not only of who and what we are to be, we learn what to champion and what to avoid.
Steve Berry
Deep Throat did serve the public interest by providing the guidance and information to us.
Bob Woodward
Foreign aid is neither a failure nor a panacea. It is, instead, an important tool of American policy that can serve the interests of the United States and the world if wisely administered.
Lee H. Hamilton
It serves notice that President Bush is serious about promoting freedom, because free societies are a lot more peaceable than dictatorships and monarchies.
Tony Snow
I read that my lifelong dream is to serve as speaker with Hillary Clinton as president. So what?
Nancy Pelosi
All I had, originally, were pages of Nolan’s dialogue. I think his character serves the story in a nice way. He’s a Greek chorus for the goings-on in the Hamptons.
Gabriel Mann
All over the world, independent and strong civil society – NGOs, faith leaders, and other community advocates – help governments solve problems and better serve their people better by shining a light on the issues that matter most – like education standards, access to healthcare, the rule of law, and economic opportunity.
Ben Rhodes
I did what any American could and should do: serve his country in its time of need.
Bob Feller
I know I have the mental capacity of a thousand bloggers, but because of that, my obligation to serve God is also that of a thousand bloggers.
Mickey Kaus
Before you, I engage myself to serve my country with the devotion and the exemplary that this post demands. I understand responsibilities of the job and, as such, I give a republican salute to Nicolas Sarkozy who has led France for 5 years and who deserves all of our respect.
Francois Hollande
I rarely ever respond to misquotes and wrong information. Plus, it only serves to bring attention to the matter.
Mark Ronson
To me, art and storytelling serve primal, spiritual functions in my daily life. Whether I’m telling a bedtime story to my kids or trying to mount a movie or write a short story or a novel, I take it very seriously.
Guillermo del Toro
The immediate future is going to be tragic for all of us unless we find a way of making the vast educational resources of this country serve the true purpose of education, truth and justice.
Anne Sullivan
That’s the conundrum of cartoon stripping, as opposed to political cartoons. When your anger is the driving force of your drawing hand, failure follows. The anger is OK, but it has to serve the interests of the heart, frankly.
Berkeley Breathed
I think if you’ve been invited to someone’s house, you eat what they serve you. Even if you leave hungry, you be gracious enough to eat what they’ve prepared.
Paula Deen
Can anything be so elegant as to have few wants, and to serve them one’s self?
Ralph Waldo Emerson
But I deal with this meditating and by understanding I’ve been put on the planet to serve humanity. I have to remind myself to live simply and not to overindulge, which is a constant battle in a material world.
Sandra Cisneros
The first thing I see is the obligation to serve peace.
Gustav Heinemann
I actually consider myself as totally privileged to be able to serve science and medicine in a global fashion, because science and medicine know no boundaries.
Magdi Yacoub
In our country today, very few children are raised to believe that their principal destiny is to serve their family, their country, or God.
Benjamin Spock
When someone asks ‘what’s the use of philosophy?’ the reply must be aggressive, since the question tries to be ironic and caustic. Philosophy does not serve the State or the Church, who have other concerns. It serves no established power.
Gilles Deleuze
I thought to myself, there’s a man who gave up his life to serve others – to touch people in that way is probably the greatest thing you can do as a human being.
Gabriel Byrne
I collect a lot of eco-friendly shopping bags that serve to separate my shoes other and other small stuff in my luggage.
Liu Wen
TSA serves as the operator, administrator and regulator for the nation’s transportation security. But in fact, the TSA bureaucracy does all it can to thwart any conversion to a system with more private-sector operations and strong federal oversight and standards. This agency cannot, and should not, do it all.
John Mica
America’s downgrade may serve as a wakeup call for its policymakers. It is an unambiguous and loud signal of the country’s eroding economic strength and global standing. It renders urgent the need to regain the initiative through better economic policymaking and more coherent governance.
Mohamed El-Erian
We must not allow the liberals to move us away from the conservative values of the American past which sustain our present and shall secure our future. As for me and my family, we will serve God, we will serve this constitutional republic, we will serve America.
Allen West
President Biden has made an exceptional choice in nominating Gayle Manchin for Federal Co-Chair of the Appalachian Regional Commission. A longtime educator and West Virginia native, she understands the critical issues facing our Appalachian communities and is well-qualified to serve in this role.
Ralph Northam
I think there’s always a call for people who are bucking the norm. But I don’t expect it to happen now because I think that more than ever the entertainment industry is trying to serve as a distraction, to keep people from thinking too hard.
Guy Picciotto
Before I write a novel, images float around in my head that work like icons – they are meaningless in themselves, but serve as reminders.
Jane Smiley
The respected intellectuals are those who conform and serve power interests.
Noam Chomsky
The baritone can serve functions that the alto and tenor cannot, in orchestral voicing.
Gerry Mulligan
The bow kept taut will quickly break, kept loosely strung, it will serve you when you need it.
Phaedrus
I would never say President Obama doesn’t have the capacity to continue to serve because of his statement that there are 56 states.
Gerald Walpin
I didn’t serve on a committee that dealt with foreign policy.
Geraldine Ferraro
There is a very intense culture of secrecy in Britain that hasn’t yet been dismantled. What passes for transparency here would serve any secret society well.
Heather Brooke
To tackle the big and relevant issues of the day with bold and innovative ideas is without question the most rewarding way to serve.
Marco Rubio
I am in the present. I cannot know what tomorrow will bring forth. I can know only what the truth is for me today. That is what I am called upon to serve, and I serve it in all lucidity.
Igor Stravinsky
I’m always aware of who my core audiences are and I serve that niche.
Edward Burns
The only way you can serve God is by serving other people.
Rick Warren
It has been an incredible honour and privilege to serve Ontarians as their premier.
Dalton McGuinty
Being an actor in L.A. is like being in prison: you go, you serve your time, you try to replicate Johnny Depp’s career – and then you move to Paris.
Alex Pettyfer
I’m a great believer in karma, and the vengeance that it serves up to those who are deliberately mean is generally enough for me.
Beth Ditto
I have seen the science I worshiped, and the aircraft I loved, destroying the civilization I expected them to serve.
Charles Lindbergh
It is very rewarding to serve the country by helping President Bush work to reduce the drug problem.
John Walters
Both dreams and neurotic dream-states have as their function the avoidance of displeasure, but the dream-states also serve to provide a positive pleasure gain.
Karl Abraham
I have always said I will be in politics to serve as best as I can and it will take me wherever it will take me.
George Papandreou
I was not content to believe in a personal devil and serve him, in the ordinary sense of the word. I wanted to get hold of him personally and become his chief of staff.
Aleister Crowley
Films for TV have to be much closer to the book, mainly because the objective with a TV movie that translates literature is to get the audience, after seeing this version, to pick up the book and read it themselves. My attitude is that TV can never really be any form of art, because it serves audience expectations.
Michael Haneke
For some people, miracles serve as evidence of God’s existence.
Walter Isaacson
The motto of chivalry is also the motto of wisdom; to serve all, but love only one.
Honore de Balzac
Under the circumstances, may I suggest another means of encouraging probity in elective office. I refer to term limitations, which can serve ends beyond that of saving congressional souls.
James L. Buckley
Public servants are paid to serve the American people. Do it well.
Donald Rumsfeld
In the same vein as these events, National Minority Health Month also serves as a reminder of how much work needs to be done to eliminate health and healthcare inequities.
Elijah Cummings
In our perform agenda, segmentation is one of our key strategic priorities. Segmentation is about deploying the right go-to-market channel to the right customers with the right pricing and the right cost to serve. And as a result, the segmentation strategy ensures that we generate profitable growth.
Alain Dehaze
The Holy Ghost is a comforter and a guide. But it is also a cleansing agent. That is why service in the kingdom is so crucial to enduring. When we are called to serve, we can pray for the Holy Ghost to be our companion with assurance it will come.
Henry B. Eyring
Our cinema is coming of age, and people are realizing we need to tell different stories differently and in fresh manner and not just do formula stuff and serve it to the audience.
Pankaj Kapur
Many churches of all persuasions are hiring research agencies to poll neighborhoods, asking what kind of church they prefer. Then the local churches design themselves to fit the desires of the people. True faith in God that demands selflessness is being replaced by trendy religion that serves the selfish.
Billy Graham
My niece was very much caught up in the vampire craze for young adults, and she thought having a vampire boyfriend would be a cool thing. What do you do on a first date? The more I thought about it, the more fun I had imagining what you’d serve a vampire for dinner.
Deborah Harkness
Law enforcement officers must carry out their sacred duty to protect and serve in a way that earns the trust of our communities.
John Bel Edwards
Sugar Breeze, my favourite restaurant in Antigua, serves the best local food, while my local golf club, Cedar Valley, is where I always go for a drink.
Viv Richards
My greatest happiness is to serve my gracious King and Country and I am envious only of glory; for if it be a sin to covet glory I am the most offending soul alive.
Horatio Nelson
I don’t often see the movies I’m in; I’m usually disappointed in myself and it only serves to make me self-conscious.
Mary-Louise Parker
I’m very proud that our country still produces people like my son, who choose the path less traveled; that knowingly step up to serve, even though our country is tearing itself apart with things like political machinations.
Steve Daines
I am willing to serve my country, but do not wish to sacrifice the brave men under my command.
John Buford
Market mechanisms are totally irrelevant when resources are used to serve a larger purpose, especially for the underserved, unserved, or marginalised.
Kapil Sibal
Our highest priorities are safe operations and the well-being of the people and communities we serve.
Lynn Good
If men are in a state in which they find it hard to be weaned from their own ways and choose rather to serve the pleasures of the flesh than to serve the Lord, and refuse to accept the Gospel life, there is no common ground between me and them.
Saint Basil
I am not a perfect servant. I am a public servant doing my best against the odds. As I develop and serve, be patient. God is not finished with me yet.
Jesse Jackson
Osama bin Laden, the person, more likely serves the function of a stand-in. Compare the new terrorists with partisans or conventional terrorists in Israel. These people often fight in a decentralized manner in small, autonomous units, too.
Jurgen Habermas
The human person, whose definition serves as the touchstone according to which good must be distinguished from evil, is considered as sacred, in what one might call the ritual sense of the word. It has something of that transcendental majesty which the churches of all times have given to their Gods.
Emile Durkheim
I went to Vietnam during the Vietnam War to visit all the troops. We would fly into a hospital and serve mess to the guys, and we ate whatever they were eating. Then we slept there and flew out the next day to little bases where there were maybe 10 or 20 guys. Then we flew to another hospital.
Vicki Lawrence
One of the things I learned from my father, and it did not serve me well at all, was that he was a successful writer, he earned a living. And it was a shock for me to find out that it was actually hard to make a living as a writer.
Michael Tolkin
I have worked with Presidents since Eisenhower. We serve together.
John Dingell
The many magazines, ranging from pulp to slick, that used to serve as both farm teams for writers and lures to readers, with hundreds of short stories every month, don’t exist. Most of the doors for new people have been sealed.
Donald E. Westlake
I’ve always wanted to serve my country in some capacity.
Pete Coors
As efforts to fix this failure at the Veterans Administration continue, I also intend to persist in demanding answers and action on the establishment of a new clinic to serve the veterans in North Central Washington.
Doc Hastings
To me, a sex scene in a movie generally means a gratuitous scene that doesn’t serve the story but gives a kind of excuse – we’ve got these two actors, we want to see them naked, so let’s bring in the music and the soft light.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt
Country music is always changing but the Opry is always there to serve as a lighthouse for what country music really is. The past, present and future is all encompassed by not only the physical structure of the building but also the radio show.
Dierks Bentley
They’re making a song and dance because that serves their immediate interests. But what will happen tomorrow? They will have to pay salaries and pensions.
Eduard Shevardnadze
Human sexuality has been regulated and shaped by men to serve men’s needs.
Ana Castillo
But my point is that you design something in the end that precludes any unhealthy trading practices that are not going to serve your environmental or your economic objectives but now is not the time to do it.
John Anderson

What I mean is, designing new fishing vessels and nets so that they do not disrupt the fish lifecycle by catching young ones and also do not destroy sea grass beds, which serve as habitats for dugongs.
M. S. Swaminathan
Leadership is inspiring extraordinary people to step up and serve their country.
Justin Trudeau

Tracy Kidder
Every relationship that we have in our lives – our contact with each person, place, and event – serves a very special, if yet to be realized purpose: They are mirrors that can serve to show us things about ourselves that can be realized in no other way.
Guy Finley
To command is to serve, nothing more and nothing less.
Andre Malraux
The Gentlemen of England serve under the greatest cad in Europe.
John Burns
So if you serve a whole chicken to your family like grandma did, you may be serving them 10 times as much fat than the days of yesteryear. That’s a whole lotta fat, and big trouble for the waistline.
Kathy Freston
In PA, the Lieutenant Governor serves as the Chair of the Board of Pardons. That means that I sit as the head of our five-person board, where we hear testimony and process applications for pardons and sentence commutation.

Fear is your greatest obstacle – so question your fear. If it does not serve your greatest life then do not make it your master.
Joy Page

I’ve had a phenomenal life. I have a phenomenal God that I serve. I have a phenomenal wife.
Michael Chandler
It’s been a great privilege to serve the people of Pennsylvania.
Arlen Specter

Jonathan Tisch
Our military, police, and first responders risk their lives to protect ours, and so today – and every day – we should thank those who serve and honor those we’ve lost.
Kim Reynolds
He who thinks and thinks for himself, will always have a claim to thanks; it is no matter whether it be right or wrong, so as it be explicit. If it is right, it will serve as a guide to direct; if wrong, as a beacon to warn.
Jeremy Bentham
It is of the utmost importance that our service members are adequately compensated for their duties, and that we offer them a quality of life that will enable them to continue to serve and to live comfortably.
Carl Levin
As they say, one thing led to another, and, ultimately, the British and Irish governments asked me to serve as chairman of the peace negotiations, which ironically began six years ago this week.
George J. Mitchell
A truly great university is a nucleus of artistic expression. It fosters creative, critical thought, and serves as a platform for civil discourse.
Gordon Gee
The great philosophers and the great works are standards for the selection of what is essential. Everything that we do in studying the history of philosophy ultimately serves their better understanding.
Karl Jaspers
A signal is comprehended if it serves to make us notice the object or situation it bespeaks. A symbol is understood when we conceive the idea it presents.

Jose Marti
My work as a naval officer in World War II enabled me to serve on 49 different South Pacific islands so that I came to know the area about as well as anyone.
James A. Michener
An ounce of cheerfulness is worth a pound of sadness to serve God with.
Thomas Fuller
I will not be able to rule without you. You and I have the same responsibility. I do, as Bolivia’s number one servant. Servant – one who serves the nation, not one whom the nation serves.
Carlos Mesa
If there is any justice in the world, then eighties rock will never again serve to blight humanity as it did in that dark decade!
Vivian Campbell

Rick Perry
Hurricane Katrina touched our customers, communities we serve, and our associates in a profound way.
Doug McMillon
Often, I’ll read a script and the female character’s an extension or serves some sort of purpose in terms of the male character’s narrative and it just isn’t fully formed. But they will be very beautiful. Whether a secretary or a doctor or a vet, they will be very beautiful.
Andrea Riseborough
I try to be as honest about what I see and to speak rather than be silent, especially if it means I can save lives, or serve humanity.
Sandra Cisneros
Not only the priceless heritage of our fathers, of our seamen, of our Empire builders is being thrown away in a war that serves no British interests – but our alliance leader Stalin dreams of nothing but the destruction of that heritage of our fathers?
John Amery
Sometimes it is a way of controlling others, including family members, because you don’t know how to connect to them in any other way. Money can also serve as a scorecard to indicate how well you are doing, the impact you are having, if you are winning.
Justine Musk
When citizens believe that the elite care more about those across the ocean than those across the train tracks, insurance has broken down, we divide into factions, and those who are left behind become angry and disillusioned with a politics that no longer serves them.
Angus Deaton
Our nation’s commitment is to provide a quality education to every child to serve the public common good. Accordingly, we must shift the paradigm to think of education funding as investments made in individual children, not in institutions or buildings.
Betsy DeVos
The sole meaning of life is to serve humanity.
Leo Tolstoy

Albert Bandura
You may depend upon it that they are as good hearts to serve men in palaces as in cottages.
Robert Owen
Since I retired, I very much enjoy watching Serena Williams play. While I was playing, she was one of the toughest players I ever faced. Her ground strokes are so solid, her serve is one of the most powerful in women’s tennis, and mentally she is just so strong.
Monica Seles
You all know the reasons which have impelled me to renounce the throne. But I want you to understand that in making up my mind I did not forget the country or the empire, which, as Prince of Wales and lately as King, I have for twenty-five years tried to serve.
Edward VIII
It’s very, very humbling, and I couldn’t be more honored to have the opportunity to run with, and serve with, the next president of the United States.

Being the first board member from Latin America, I hope to provide insight into the economical, social and political issues facing the region, and continue to grow and strengthen this prestigious institution.

Louis Farrakhan
The life of the community, both domestically and internationally, clearly demonstrates that respect for rights, and the guarantees that follow from them, are measures of the common good that serve to evaluate the relationship between justice and injustice, development and poverty, security and conflict.
Pope Benedict XVI
You know, I’ve been attending so many banquets that I know what they’re going to serve before I get there.
Knute Rockne
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew to serve your turn long after they are gone, and so hold on when there is nothing in you except the will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’
Rudyard Kipling

George Matthew Adams
A man has to learn that he cannot command things, but that he can command himself; that he cannot coerce the wills of others, but that he can mold and master his own will: and things serve him who serves Truth; people seek guidance of him who is master of himself.
James Allen
My serve and my forehand I pretty much always had, but my backhand was a made backhand. I worked on it for years.
Ivan Lendl
Returning serve on clay is not easy because you don’t always have a sure footing so you can’t push off in the way that you would like.

J. R. Moehringer
It’s easy to be a spokesman and ambassador for a great organization like the NBA. I thank Commissioner David Stern for putting that trust in me to serve the NBA around the globe.

Edna St. Vincent Millay
The fiesta of soccer, a feast for the legs that play and the eyes that watch, is much more than a big business run by overlords from Switzerland. The most popular sport in the world wants to serve the people who embrace it.
Eduardo Galeano
Most of the slaves, who were thus unconditionally freed, returned without any solicitation to their former masters, to serve them, at stated wages; as free men. The work, which they now did, was found to better done than before.
Thomas Clarkson
It was my privilege to serve with Paul Ryan in the House and on the Ways and Means Committee. Ryan’s vast experience and bold, reform-minded ideas were always evident. His knowledge of the federal budget is widely recognized.
Bob Beauprez
If confirmed by the Senate to serve on the Supreme Court, I will keep an open mind in every case and always strive to preserve the Constitution of the United States and the American rule of law.
Brett Kavanaugh
Reason is, and ought only to be the slave of the passions, and can never pretend to any other office than to serve and obey them.
David Hume
Internet safety begins at home and that is why my legislation would require the Federal Trade Commission to design and publish a unique website to serve as a clearinghouse and resource for parents, teachers and children for information on the dangers of surfing the Internet.
Mike Fitzpatrick
I really enjoy the iPad because you can multi-task: I can watch a movie, read, look at pictures that I shot – because I’m into photography. It serves a lot of purposes for me.
Tyson Chandler
That is my major preoccupation, memory, the kingdom of memory. I want to protect and enrich that kingdom, glorify that kingdom and serve it.

Sing the songs of joy to the Lord, serve the Name of the Lord, and become the servant of His servants.
Guru Nanak
I just want to serve Colombia.
Alvaro Uribe
I certainly can’t speak for all cultures or all societies, but it’s clear that in America, poetry serves a very marginal purpose. It’s not part of the cultural mainstream.
Mark Strand
I’m a minister, and I serve as a minister in addition to being a university professor.
Tony Campolo
I’m a guy desperately in need of buffers. I have big feelings, big reactions, big emotions. All the things that serve me as an artist, but challenge me as a socially-responsible human being.
Kurt Sutter
And there isn’t any way that one can get rid of the guilt of having a nice body by saying that one can serve society with it, because that would end up with oneself as what? There simply doesn’t seem to be any moral place for flesh.
Margaret Drabble
As my kids grow up, I think a lot about the lessons and values I want to impart to them. More than any particular skill or even financial support, I believe perseverance and resilience will serve them best, regardless of what curveball life inevitably throws them.
Sal Khan
It’s a privilege to serve the poor, to be servants of noble Africans, but I better belong in the rehearsal room or in the studio with my band. That’s where I want to be and I still wake up in the morning with melodies in my head.
Bono
A solution built by an artist serves the artist more than the solution the capitalist comes up with.
Nipsey Hussle
The time has come to repeal ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.’ It is the right thing to do. Every American should have the opportunity to serve their country, regardless of race, sex, creed, or sexual orientation.
Dianne Feinstein
