Almost all of your life is lived by the seat of your pants, one unexpected event crashing into another, with no pattern or reason, and then you finally reach a point, around my age, where you spend more time than ever looking back.

It’s every lawyer’s dream to help shape the law, not just react to it.

I’ve always been short and stocky. So when I got into repertory theatre after graduation, I found myself doing character roles: because of my deep voice, shape and height, I was playing 40-year-old, 50-year-old roles at the age of 23.
The whole idea of a democracy is that we ourselves, the people, are supposed to make a path of our politics, and it is we who with our feet and our vote and our labors and our vigilance are supposed to shape our country.

I’ve found that it’s easier to stay in shape than it is to get into shape.
In the 1950s and ’60s, America’s natural resources were in bad shape. Communities were so polluted that clouds of smog lingered over cities like Los Angeles. Rivers and lakes were filled with chemicals. In my hometown of Boston, the harbor was among the nation’s most polluted waterways.
We become what we behold. We shape our tools and then our tools shape us.

Women are, in general, less shallow visually. If their man gains 10, 20 pounds, they don’t care as much. But I’ve been with women over the years when my weight fluctuated, and they’re definitely more interested physically when I am in really great shape.
In many a piece of music, it’s the pause or the rest that gives the piece its beauty and its shape. And I know I, as a writer, will often try to include a lot of empty space on the page so that the reader can complete my thoughts and sentences and so that her imagination has room to breathe.
This planet seems to be in such sorry shape. And I can’t ever think about the rest of the universe without coming back home and thinking what the implications for life here would be if we were to really have some definitive proof of extraterrestrial life.
One of my big regrets is that Facebook hasn’t had a major chance to shape the mobile operating system ecosystem.

You have to find hope. Hope is such a shape shifter. You tend to look in the rearview mirror for hope, but when it’s gone, you have to look forward. You have to get in the van and keep driving on.

A lot of the motivation for doing the ‘Make ‘Em Laugh’ on SNL was because I had just finished shooting ‘Inception,’ where there were zero-gravity scenes and I got into really good shape and was training and did all these stunts.

Although popular entertainment can, over the long run, shape public perceptions, it becomes popular in the first place only if it addresses preexisting hopes, fears, and fascinations.
I certainly hope my music is in no way, shape or form influenced by anything that would be known as a jam band. If it is, then I’m going to do something else.

I am always in much better shape when I am doing a Broadway show because you have the eight shows a week to kind of keep the body clean and perfect in a sense, you know? For instance, I always eat much better when I am in a show because you can’t have dairy – for your voice.

Students often have such a lofty idea of what a poem is, and I want them to realize that their own lives are where the poetry comes from. The most important things are to respect the language; to know the classical rules, even if only to break them; and to be prepared to edit, to revise, to shape.

I know when I’ve been playing a lot of golf it takes me a while to get back into cricket again. It’s not so much the different shape of the swings, more the fact that you are stationary when you hit a golf ball. In cricket you have to move forward or back, which is an instinctive timing thing.
As you get older it gets doubly hard to keep yourself fit and in shape.
I graduated from Second City Los Angeles. It helped me tremendously, not only in my roles in films but in helping shape me into a writer as well. In improv, you will fail sometimes, so it teaches you to be brave and try anything. The worst that can happen is nobody laughs.
I always tell people, anger is like liquid. It’s fluid, it’s like water. You put it in a container and it takes the shape of that container. So many people you see in prison, unleashing war on their people, they are angry, and they take their anger and put it into a violent container.

One of the great things to pretend is that you’re not only alright, you’re in great shape. Now to have that come true – I’ve actually gone on stage depressed and that’s worked its magic on me, ’cause if I can convince you that I’m alright, then maybe I can convince me.
My goals are so high that I don’t have time to relax in any way, shape or form.

The problem with New Year’s resolutions – and resolutions to ‘get in better shape’ in general, which are very amorphous – is that people try to adopt too many behavioral changes at once. It doesn’t work. I don’t care if you’re a world-class CEO – you’ll quit.
I couldn’t wait to be an adult woman, and I’m glad I felt that way as a kid because, when I grew up, I realised I live in a world where the female form is really disrespected, and society is often trying to wrestle the female form into a shape that looks more like a young boy.

I hear so many people talking about what’s wrong, whether it’s climate change or whatever, but so few say, ‘Well, look, we’ve got this problem, so let’s find the solution. Let’s find a scientist, let’s find politicians who are prepared to shape the future, or try and keep up with it.’
Awards shows are my greatest inducement to get back into shape.
I had been in the gym training for many, many years, but I definitely stepped it up when it was time to get into shape to play ‘Lights’. I began trying to live the life of a boxer, and that means everything that you would expect.

Oh yeah, I mean, it wasn’t a very good guitar, most good guitars have got thrust rods in the necks that you can adjust or that’ll keep them in shape, you know keep them straight. This one just, well it turned into a bow and arrow after a couple of months.

One of the most important things that I have learned in my 57 years is that life is all about choices. On every journey you take, you face choices. At every fork in the road, you make a choice. And it is those decisions that shape our lives.

To seek after any shape of God, and to assign a form and image to Him, is a proof of man’s folly.

Once you’ve finished typing and moving text around and everything else, you have to leave it alone for a while.
