Tony Rock

Abraham Verghese
So thoroughly and sincerely are we compelled to live, reverencing our life, and denying the possibility of change.

Henry David Thoreau
The whole spirit of ‘Eddie The Eagle’ is that it’s the taking part that counts, not the winning.

Future’s not everybody. The people who are taking my style are like my babies. I’ve got a tribe of kids that want to be like me… But I understand why people want to imitate the things I do. They’re dope. It comes naturally to me. My fans can expect greatness. If I wasn’t me, I would want to be me.
Future
If one undertakes retrospection of the day’s events, one must do it regularly at the appointed hour, not fitfully, not doing it today, neglecting to do it tomorrow and the day after and then taking it up again on the fourth day. Such irregular practice is not conducive to the confirmation of the habit of retrospection.
Mahavira

Daniel H. Pink
One of my modeling bookers told me that the most important thing is to try to be vigilant about taking care of yourself. Get sleep, don’t be afraid to trim your hair even if you’re trying to grow it out, don’t bite your fingernails, and stay in shape. A lot of it is in the little things.
Julia Jones
When you are a child, your father is God to you. Then, as you grow up, you have different gods. You change. But does it really matter? All of the roads lead to the same place, and if you are going in the right direction, it doesn’t matter what you are taking – a jet plane or a cart pulled by a donkey.
Walter Mercado
It’s about being steady and taking the rough with the smooth, but that’s life as a goalkeeper.

Is fear preventing you from taking action? Acknowledge the fear, watch it, take your attention into it, be fully present with it. Doing so cuts the link between the fear and your thinking. Don’t let the fear rise up into your mind. Use the power of the Now. Fear cannot prevail against it.
Eckhart Tolle
I have a pretty fast metabolism, so I don’t really have to worry about getting pudgy. What I try to do when I’m working out is taking in a lot of heavy protein – clean chicken, clean meats.
Chris Evans
Sometimes you feel uncomfortable taking a photograph, but that’s all part of the job.
Martin Parr
Kindle Singles is publishing on skates. It prints like lightning; our book meets readers in hours.

Richard Bach
I guess taking a stand is valid for a commentator. But that’s not what I am.

Peter Zumthor
I had to be – I was in school for probably three or four years before I began taking courses in history and political science, and I just started to realize how big the world was. I mean, when I arrived in college, I didn’t know anything.
Tara Westover
If I am putting myself out there and taking some of these risks, then I want to do it properly.
Daniel Ricciardo
That’s the most beautiful thing that I like about boxing: you can take a punch. The biggest thing about taking a punch is your ego reacts and there’s no better spiritual lesson than trying to not pay attention to your ego’s reaction. That’s what takes people out of the fight half the time.
David O. Russell
Football is a simple game based on the giving and taking of passes, of controlling the ball and of making yourself available to receive a pass. It is terribly simple.
Bill Shankly
The gesture of taking the watch from the pocket and looking at the time is very elegant for a man, but if I was going to create a pocket watch, I wanted it to be very modern. I didn’t want to do old-fashioned.
Richard Mille
For those of you who aren’t aware I am Jewish, the name might have given it away, and there were no other Jewish kids on my football team, so it was an adjustment for me because the kids didn’t exactly love the fact that there was a Jewish kid taking their spot.
Maxwell Jacob Friedman
Some people thought I wasn’t taking the sport seriously because I was always laughing and having fun, but I loved my skiing, I loved my jumping, and I thought, ‘Well, why not have a smile on my face when I’m doing something that I really, really love doing,’ and that’s how I was.
Eddie the Eagle
For me, style is about how you feel that day and what inspires you, as well as taking chances and making mistakes. Everything has to be comfortable. If things are too tight or too constricting, I feel out of my element.

Sonny Mehta
A lot of places think that bigger is better. It’s like consumerism is taking everything over.

In 3-D filmmaking, I can take images and manipulate them infinitely, as opposed to taking still photographs and laying them one after the other. I move things in all directions. It’s such a liberating experience.
George Lucas
Imagine your family finally making it from nothing to something, and finally getting things going, and finally buying a beautiful house and taking care of your children – and the next day, it’s completely all gone. Zero. Boom. Flat broke. So that’s when I had to man up.
DJ Khaled

Don Shula
I really like doing portraits, but I like taking pictures of things that are natural, like scenery, too.

Noam Chomsky
The goal is never be a copycat of ourselves. It’s more along the lines of taking risks in our music.

Travis Bradberry
So how do you make it as a mainstream entertainer? Who knows? But I think you have to be uncomfortable, right? You have to make yourself uncomfortable. All success stories depend on that. That’s why I might start sleeping on hardwood floors and taking cold showers.
Logan Paul
I’m not great at taking compliments because I always find the thing I could do better.
Deborah Meaden
It is change, continuing change, inevitable change, that is the dominant factor in society today. No sensible decision can be made any longer without taking into account not only the world as it is, but the world as it will be.
Isaac Asimov
I like to always lead from the front and set an example for whoever is playing with me or around me. I like taking responsibilities. That is my natural thing.

Voltaire
We have much to learn by studying nature and taking the time to tease out its secrets.

Steven Pinker
Faith is not a sense, nor sight, nor reason, but taking God at His work.
Faith Evans
I had a long time admiration for the Jewish people. Especially with their long time of courage, taking so much abuse for so long. I was only seven years old, but I could easily see the ungodly treatment that the white folks were handing the poor Jewish family whom I worked for.
Louis Armstrong
Tennis is a perfect combination of violent action taking place in an atmosphere of total tranquillity.
Billie Jean King
Courage is willingness to take the risk once you know the odds. Optimistic overconfidence means you are taking the risk because you don’t know the odds. It’s a big difference.
Daniel Kahneman
If I keep taking my good swings, swing at the right pitches, good things will happen.
Aaron Judge
Drag is involved with changing identities and not taking identities too seriously at all. That’s why drag is such a hard sell to a network – or anyone, really – because it’s up against the ego.
RuPaul
You don’t get rewarded for taking risk; you get rewarded for buying cheap assets. And if the assets you bought got pushed up in price simply because they were risky, then you are not going to be rewarded for taking a risk; you are going to be punished for it.
Jeremy Grantham
I consider myself a perpetual student. You seek and learn every day: from an experiment in the lab, from reading a scientific journal, from taking care of a patient. Because of this, I rarely get bored.
Anthony Fauci
You have to understand that every negotiation isn’t about taking everything off the table. It’s cliche, but you have to try and make sure the other side feels good and you feel good. Because in my business, when I make a deal, it just means once we’re done negotiating, we have to go off and work together.
Maverick Carter
When we drink a cup of coffee or spoon heated chicken noodle soup or chili out of a Styrofoam cup, we are also taking in small doses of chemicals that leach from the container. Heat activates this transfer, as does oil, acids and alcohol.
Chuck Norris
My two biggest lessons learned as a trader are take risks and get comfortable with taking losses and setbacks to help move you forward.
Brandon Stanton
I would love to just continue playing characters that break the mold. I like making interesting decisions when playing characters, so, taking something that would seem one way and then playing it a different way.
Anthony Carrigan
Life experience is what defines our character, even if it means getting your heart broken or being lied to. You know, you need the downs to appreciate the ups. Going on the adventure or taking that risk is important.

Confidence is going after Moby Dick in a rowboat and taking tartar sauce with you.
Zig Ziglar
Innovation is taking two things that already exist and putting them together in a new way.

Paris Hilton
I don’t like my hockey sticks touching other sticks, and I don’t like them crossing one another, and I kind of have them hidden in the corner. I put baby powder on the ends. I think it’s essentially a matter of taking care of what takes care of you.
Wayne Gretzky
It took me a lot of years to understand everything that it took to be at a high level. Not only on the court and in the weight room, but also making sure that I’m taking care of my body, that I’m recovering. It’s a year-round process. It’s not just in-season and then offseason and it’s over.
Al Horford
Everyone is given one gift, a reason for being, and it’s our obligation to do something with it. Obviously, it’s a challenge – but if you’re not taking the bull by the horns, I have no patience for you. You’re just taking up space.
Melissa Rosenberg
The follow your dreams thing is really important because so many people are railroaded into taking other paths by their family, their friends, people who should be supportive going, ‘What are you talking about?’ Even just seemingly regular career paths, but if it’s not what people expect for you they kind of react funny.
Joan Jett
One becomes an entrepreneur to break the glass ceiling and that’s when you grow the market. Of course, in that process you have to be prepared to get hurt. You will get hurt. But I’m a doer and I like taking risks.
Ronnie Screwvala
I’d just much rather see an ugly person take the trash out than see somebody really pretty taking the trash out.
Amy Sedaris
There’s something strange about theater. My characters consistently demonize elitism, but of course it’s taking place in a theater where only so many people can see it. I’ve been in silly popcorn movies – the kind of thing that as an actor you might feel embarrassed about – but those movies reach many more people.
Jesse Eisenberg
Devon holds a special place in my heart. As a child, I normally went on holiday to Bantham and have lots of happy memories from my time there. I used to catch sand eels in the early morning and go fishing for bass throughout the day. I remember a gull taking my bait.
Richard Branson
Certainly, in taking revenge, a man is but even with his enemy, but in passing it over, he is superior; for it is a prince’s part to pardon.
Francis Bacon
The ground beneath you is shifting, and either you get sucked in by holding on to old ways, or you take a giant step forward by taking some risks and seeing what happens.
Bonnie Hammer
You can’t get anywhere in life without taking risks.
Esme Bianco
I think we are all insecure, and there is nothing wrong in accepting that. But the problem arises when we try to counter this insecurity by cultivating this illusion of control, and we start taking ourselves and everything we know too seriously.
Sushant Singh Rajput
I have found great power in taking my ‘difference’ out for a spin in a very public way. And usually, the worst, most personally embarrassing thing you imagine in your mind is often not anywhere near as bad in real life.
Aimee Mullins
I still feel awkward taking a selfie sometimes; it feels a little weird.
Bella Hadid
The new history is really ancient history newly discovered. Journalists are taking crash courses in the blood-drenched background of Serbs, Croats, Bosnians, North Ossetians, Armenians and Azerbaijanis.
Henry Grunwald
A strategy is something like, an innovative new product; globalization, taking your products around the world; be the low-cost producer. A strategy is something you can touch; you can motivate people with; be number one and number two in every business. You can energize people around the message.
Jack Welch
I’m not good at taking pictures. I can’t give a good face. I crack up.
Chrissy Teigen
We can be thankful President Barack Obama is taking aim at one of the prime causes of climate change and extreme weather: air pollution. The EPA’s carbon pollution standards are the most significant step forward our country has ever taken to protect our health by addressing climate change.
Donna Brazile
The advice I’ve been giving to people all my life – that you may not be interested in the dialectic but the dialectic is interested in you; you can’t give up politics, it won’t give you up – was the advice I should have been taking myself.
Christopher Hitchens
I’m taking my rats. Those are my friends for the tour. Thelma and Louise. They’re so cute.
Pink
One thing I’ve learned about death threats is that they’re great, actually. You should actually be grateful for death threats because those who are taking the time to threaten you that way are getting it out of their system. That’s really what they rant to do, yell at you, and they want to threaten you.
Michael Moore
I was taking a nose dive somewhere between eleven and twelve because my sister had died and I was practicing something that siblings do which is follow in their footsteps and die as well.
Leo Kottke
It feels completely amazing to finally be in the space where there are so many people taking me seriously as an actress.
Mj Rodriguez
At 9, I started taking classes at Sylvia Young Theatre School. One day, they asked if I wanted to join their agency. You get in if you’re cute, I guess.
Ella Purnell
In the long term, artificial intelligence and automation are going to be taking over so much of what gives humans a feeling of purpose.
Matt Bellamy
A lot of women these days, a lot of young women don’t want to call themselves feminists. You have this cheap, hideous ‘girl power’ sort of fad, which I think is pretty benign at best, but at worst, I think it’s a way of taking the politics out of feminism and making it some kind of fashion.
Ani DiFranco
I was not willing to give up because I was born to like taking risks and that is my way of life.
Alain Robert
Creative risk taking is essential to success in any goal where the stakes are high. Thoughtless risks are destructive, of course, but perhaps even more wasteful is thoughtless caution which prompts inaction and promotes failure to seize opportunity.
Gary Ryan Blair
I can’t ever remember being struck by lightning when making a big decision. It’s always about taking in more and more data points and making tack adjustments as you figure it out. I call customers, suppliers, industry analysts and try to get as much information as possible.
Michael Dell
Taking care of myself used to be at the bottom of my list, but I’m all about wellness.
Caroline Ghosn
It’s an absolute honor to be taking part in the pageant for the Diamond Jubilee. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and will be a moment in history that will always be remembered. I’m really looking forward to being out on the river with friends and family. To mark this historic moment will be extremely special.
Steve McFadden
I started flying because I had a fear of it early on. I figured if I learned to fly, I would understand better what was happening and started taking lessons in the late 1950’s, once I had made some money on tour.
Arnold Palmer
I love the system. Let me tell you why. People love it… The people, by and large, have great respect for our law and our system… Why do you think they go to that courthouse instead of killing each other in the streets, taking the law into their own hands?
Joe Jamail
Just taking risks for risk’s sake, that doesn’t do it for me. I’m willing to take risks that I think are worth it, and I’ve worked so hard to make sure that I survive.
Chris Hadfield
You and I are stuck with the necessity of taking the worst of two evils or none at all. So-I’m taking the immature Democrat as the best of the two. Nixon is impossible.
Harry S Truman
I’m the sort of person who takes a camera to dinner or a nightclub because I enjoy taking pictures of people. I tweet all my pictures, which is bad.
Tamara Ecclestone
People are taking a second look at Compton or rethinking what they believed to be true. Even the rap stars who helped established Compton’s reputation worldwide are older now, and even their images have evolved.
Aja Brown
I’m always reading the next book. Taking notes. Highlighting, researching, studying. It doesn’t stop.
Jocko Willink
If we choose to walk into a forest where a tiger lives, we are taking a chance. If we swim in a river where crocodiles live, we are taking a chance. If we visit the desert or climb a mountain or enter a swamp where snakes have managed to survive, we are taking a chance.
Peter Benchley
Look I eat really well and I work out, but I also indulge when I want to. I don’t starve myself in an extremist way. You’re not taking away my coffee or my dairy or my glass of wine because I’d be devastated.
Jennifer Aniston
I’m not someone who dwells upon past events, taking the view that life is too short.
Charles Kennedy
In ‘Purab Aur Paschim,’ there’s one of the nicer patriotic scenes which is patriotic without going jingoistic. There’s a scene set in a rotating restaurant, where Pran, who has left India, is completely running India down and Manoj Kumar is taking up for India. And there’s that song ‘Jab Zero Diya.’
Farah Khan
I do believe women have different ways of taking risks, of ruminating a bit more before they jump to conclusions. And I think that as a result, particularly on the, on, you know, on the trading floor, in the financial markets in general, the approach would be different.
Christine Lagarde
I make a lot of mistakes, too, and I’m constantly re-evaluating how I’m doing things and trying to be better every day, whether it’s as a mom or taking care of myself.
Mia Hamm
My parents taught me honesty, truth, compassion, kindness and how to care for people. Also, they encouraged me to take risks, to boldly go. They taught me that the greatest danger in life is not taking the adventure.
Brian Blessed
I believe all life has value, from conception to natural death. And I believe the intentional taking of human life, except to save lives, should be a capital offense, as it is in most states in America today.
Tom Coburn
I will say a lot of dancers do such beautiful things for their body and then they smoke a cigarette. I’ve never been a smoker, but I realized after taking yoga . . . in ballet you’re not encouraged to do a lot of breathing. I think in a weird way, a lot of dancers find relief in actually breathing.
Elizabeth Berkley
It is not materialism that is the chief curse of the world, as pastors teach, but idealism. Men get into trouble by taking their visions and hallucinations too seriously.
H. L. Mencken
To a certain extent I am taking a leap of faith. I’m adding up the evidence on either side, and I’m seeing the evidence of there not being a God is overwhelming compared to the evidence for there being a God.
Julia Sweeney
Most human beings have an almost infinite capacity for taking things for granted.
Aldous Huxley
Every time I tell my story, I feel that I am taking some power away from the terrorists.
Nadia Murad
Leadership – leadership is about taking responsibility, not making excuses.
Mitt Romney
I have taken lot of risks in life, and I believe that life is about taking risks.
Ayushmann Khurrana
One of the ways that people avoid taking responsibility for their role in their own pain is what I call the BPs – blame and projection.
Iyanla Vanzant
I love taking prints, embroidery, appliques – precious things that seem to be from another time – and using them to create a contemporary, new story.
Alessandro Michele
I was gutted to leave my boyfriend at home when I started my tour, but taking my pillow was like taking a little bit of him with me.
Amy Winehouse
My early memories of my dad were taking me to play football when I was six – they are happy ones. They are my favourites.
Riyad Mahrez
George Bush taking credit for the wall coming down is like the rooster taking credit for the sun rising.
Al Gore
We don’t know where we’ll end up, but making moments matter – taking a step back to see something from a different vantage point and investing in your core values – can lead to a world of surprises.
Nina Tassler
I’m witnessing the problems that the federal government is passing down in terms of drones, in violation of our civil liberties, spying on our citizens, death panels in the form of the government taking over the health care system and the national debt they’re just saddling our grandchildren with.
Matt Rosendale
When we see a strong correlation, and the matter at-hand is something with major health or safety or security implications, then we are behooved to at least begin taking preliminary precautions in case the correlation proves to be causative.
David Brin
When a moment in front of me appears to be particularly special, whether it be by beauty or experience, I capture it. I usually find a reason to justify taking that photo – symmetry, or color, or contrast – and it’s my hope that my photography sheds light onto what I see and do on a daily basis.
Connor Franta
The best thing to do is stare it in the face and move on. We have to face our fears and plow through. I think taking chances takes a lot more courage than staying stagnant and doing what’s safe and comfortable.
Terri Clark
I think that it’s interesting how shows like ‘Walking Dead’ or even ‘Game of Thrones,’ with all its fantasy elements, have become so popular. Sometimes, though, I get a little bit annoyed because the whole nerd thing taking over and is now cool, and it wasn’t cool when I was younger.
AJ Lee
There’s a little bit of me that’s Republican, and there’s a little bit of me that’s Democratic. I believe in taking care of people that don’t have, I believe in taking care of the planet, you know, all that type of stuff.
Dana White
My gut told me ‘Kanaa’ was worth taking up, and it’s a dream role for any actor.
Aishwarya Rajesh
I praise CBS for taking a risk, which is always the price you pay for opportunity. This is not standard movie of the week storytelling. I think movies of the week have fallen into a niche and that isn’t my niche.
Tom Selleck
Genius is an infinite capacity for taking pains.
Thomas Carlyle
I never get the accountants in before I start up a business. It’s done on gut feeling, especially if I can see that they are taking the mickey out of the consumer.
Richard Branson
Well, I mean, Russia was responsible for shooting down MH17. Russia was responsible for invading Ukraine. Russia is responsible for taking away the chemical weapons in Syria that they didn’t take away. Russia was responsible for having honest athletes in the Olympics when they did the whole doping program.
Bill Browder
I’ve a secret desire to be a tradie really. I wouldn’t mind taking time out to do a carpentry course.
Aaron Pedersen
Power can be taken, but not given. The process of the taking is empowerment in itself.
Gloria Steinem
Watching television is like taking black spray paint to your third eye.
Bill Hicks
The pace at which people are taking to digital technology defies our stereotypes of age, education, language and income.
Narendra Modi
You’ve got to give your past attention, but you’ve got to forgive yourself, acknowledge what you did wrong, and be a man, taking responsibility. You can’t not fly anymore because of the things you’ve been through. You’ve got to believe in a brighter future, that better version of yourself.
Jon Jones
By taking a second wife he pays the highest compliment to the first, by showing that she made him so happy as a married man, that he wishes to be so a second time.
Samuel Johnson
I was alive during the women’s lib movement, and I do not remember anyone taking a position against cooking. I think they were talking about other things.
Nora Ephron
I think it’s impossible to maintain a good, strong, muscular physique without taking some supplements. Between the protein shakes and the multivitamins that I take, I use C4, the pre-workout mix. I try to keep it as basic as I can, but I think I would shrink and disappear if I stopped taking protein shakes.
Joseph Gatt
I built a very methodical television show around my business. I learned how to use television as a platform to advertise products. I created a platform showcasing the stuff that I build. It’s taking the integration model to another level.
Rob Dyrdek
I believe in honesty and integrity, having a belief system that you’ve thought through and then stick to. I believe in being creative and contributing, and I believe in taking a stand against injustice that you encounter in everyday life and not being idle in that respect.
Talulah Riley
If the Supreme Court rules that rent control is an unconstitutional taking of property, it would put all sorts of zoning rules in danger.
Adam Cohen
Of course I’ve had a problem with people taking me seriously because of my age. People are always going do that because you’re less experienced; you haven’t lived as much.
Zendaya
We’re taking on Social Security as a property rights issue. We figure that every single American has an absolute property right interest in the fruits of his or her own labor. What I work for should be my property.
Malcolm Wallop
The poor man looks upon the law as an enemy, not as a friend. For him, the law is always taking something away.
Robert Kennedy
Music was in the air when I was growing up. My siblings Katy, Dave and Phil were musical; my dad worked in inner-city New York where a musical revolution was taking place – folk music, rock n’ roll, gospel music. My sister taught me to sing. My brothers taught me to play.
Sam Barry
Taking joy in living is a woman’s best cosmetic.
Rosalind Russell
Better educating our college students on the risks of high student debt and helping them to find alternatives to taking out student loans would help make the difference to their financial future.
Darryl Glenn
Motivational talks are something I have been asked to do and i fancy taking a crack at it.
George Groves
What is at a peak is certain to decline. He who shows his hand will surely be defeated. He who can prevail in battle by taking advantage of his enemy’s doubts is invincible.
Cao Cao
Exploitation films were famous for taking an issue an exploiting it because they could move much faster than a studio could. If there was any hot topic, they would run out and make a quick movie and make a buck on it, by changing it around and using it, in some way, to give some relevance.
Robert Rodriguez
There’s beauty in everyone’s mug and body-ody-ody, but taking care of those things requires a lot of work, energy, and effort.
Alyssa Edwards
Donald J. Trump has the good fortune of taking office as the economy is finally recovering from the 2008 crisis.
Joseph Stiglitz
When going out on a date, I think there are certain old-fashioned manners that I still enjoy. I don’t mean that as an anti-feminist comment. I just mean it as a pro-women comment. There must be a place for us to exist and our differences to exist without one taking away from the other.
Rachael Stirling
One of the pleasures of being an actor is quite simply taking a walk in someone else’s shoes. And when I look at the roles I’ve played, I’m kind of amazed at all the wonderful adventures I’ve had and the different things I’ve learned.
Willem Dafoe
‘Damage’ is about taking risks, stepping into new territory regardless of the outcome.
Mya
I’m worried about taking care of myself and working out and taking my body to the best it could be.
Michael Sorrentino
I’m always uneasy with messages. I think if there is a message, it’s about taking control of your life. Not becoming a victim. Be true to yourself. In essence it’s about love in the drug culture.
Neil Tennant
I wasn’t taking myself seriously as a novelist, and then it became my day job.
Jim Harrison
I’ve learned that I am a complete workaholic and that no amount of sleeplessness or exhaustion will keep me from taking on new or ambitious projects. That is both a good quality and a terrible one, I think.
Sasha Velour
Despite everything I’ve been through, despite being a kid with a spotty background, the Cleveland Browns stuck their neck out and risked taking me and put their faith and belief in me, and I won’t let them down.
Josh Gordon
Taking risks is the best thing ever, and that’s what gets you anywhere.
Benee
There were two free public libraries within walking distance of my home; I remember taking six books home from every visit, the limit set by the library.
Martin Lewis Perl
For the first time ever I was taking the family on the road. We stayed with my in-laws, which on life’s list of experiences ranks right below sitting in a tub full of scissors.
Jeff Foxworthy
The Creator, in taking infinite pains to shroud with mystery His presence in every atom of creation, could have had but one motive – a sensitive desire that men seek Him only through free will.
Paramahansa Yogananda
My family always believed in me, even when I didn’t. Having that love and support made me not afraid of failing. I knew my mom would be proud of me just for taking a chance and pursuing my dream.
Nico Santos
I love great lyrics, and I love the way it could shape a tune into a very unpredictable one, and I also like taking a great melody and putting lyrics into it.
A. R. Rahman
I’m equally comfortable in getting out there and taking a stand when I have to take a stand.
Sanjay Kumar
I’m 18 in this album. I’m not losing fans, and I’m not disrepecting women, but you reach the maturity of taking it to the next level with a girl. It was only necessary for me to have at least one song like that.
Chris Brown
I want to thank you for taking time out of your day to come and witness my hanging.
George W. Bush
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
Action-adventure, that genre, only works for me if you can care about the characters. If the hero’s not taking some kind of a journey, then there are no stakes – and no stakes, then you don’t care if he lives or dies, wins or loses.
Brandon Lee
We should increase our development of alternative fuels, taking advantage of renewable resources, like using corn and sugar to produce ethanol or soybeans to produce biodiesel.
Bobby Jindal
I’m most passionate about anything to do with nature and the simple things. I love taking walks with my family or my friends and seeing nature. And that’s why I love living where I live because I live up in the desert area in the mountains.
Atticus Shaffer
The very first big photo shoot I ever did was with Bruce Weber. I couldn’t believe this guy was taking my picture, so when he told me to get in the bathtub, I just did. It’s only now, looking back, that I realise, you don’t have to do everything people tell you.
Matt Damon
I’m taking each day one day at a time, and building up my strength and endurance. It’s crazy because it takes no time at all to lose everything you have and then so much time to gain it back.
Michelle McCool
Glamour is fun! Spending time to get ready isn’t about being fussy; it’s about taking care of myself.
Becki Newton
I stopped making movies because I don’t like taking my clothes off. Maybe it’s realism, but in my opinion, it’s utter filth.
Debbie Reynolds
When takers talk about mistakes, they’re usually quick to place the blame on other people. Givers are more likely to say ‘Here’s the mistake I made; I learned the following from it. Here are the steps I’m taking to make sure I don’t let people down in the future.’
Adam Grant
I was friends with Cube; he was also a fan of mine, and I a fan of him. Even before Balistyx happened I was hanging out with him, taking him to ‘The Arsenio Hall Show’ for his first time. I was like, ‘Ice Cube, I’ve got a plus 1, you should go,’ and I took him. Cube wasn’t known at all yet.
David Faustino
My desire was not to pass any island without taking possession, so that, one having been taken, the same may be said of all.
Christopher Columbus
The roots of the word ‘anarchy’ are ‘an archos,’ ‘no leaders,’ which is not really about the kind of chaos that most people imagine when the word ‘anarchy’ is mentioned. I think that anarchy is, to the contrary, about taking personal responsibility for yourself.
Alan Moore
I begin by taking. I shall find scholars later to demonstrate my perfect right.
Frederick the Great
Gun control means being able to hit your target. If I have a ‘hot button’ issue, this is definitely it. Don’t even think about taking my guns. My rights are not negotiable, and I am totally unwilling to compromise when it comes to the Second Amendment.
Michael Badnarik
The older I get the more wisdom I find in the ancient rule of taking first things first. A process which often reduces the most complex human problem to a manageable proportion.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
Today is the day for the complaining to end and for statesmanship to begin. Today I am taking action to cut state spending and balance the budget this year.
Chris Christie
I love the creating part of taking on a character. It is fun to be another person and create what it would be like to be that person.
Jason Dohring
I’ve always felt that if something is polarizing, that’s usually the stuff I like the most. If something is taking a chance and is willing to be weird, that’s my favorite thing. I know there’s somebody out there who hates it.
Andy Samberg
Cancer has taught me a lot of things. Maybe it is the best thing that has happened to me. I can’t say right now, but maybe some years down the line, I would realise. When I was taking chemotherapy, there were a lot of elderly patients, and that would inspire me. I thought, ‘If they can be cured, why can’t I be?’
Yuvraj Singh
I’m just taking it one day at a time. Actually, one night at a time. I’m not usually up during the day.
Willam Belli
People who are always taking care of their health are like misers, who are hoarding a treasure which they have never spirit enough to enjoy.
Laurence Sterne
To encounter ‘Beowulf’ is like taking a sledgehammer to a quarry face. You must bang in there.
Seamus Heaney
Inspiring scenes of people taking the future of their countries into their own hands will ignite greater demands for good governance and political reform elsewhere in the world, including in Asia and in Africa.
William Hague
It is time for us to make a real commitment to our rural communities by expanding broadband, by supporting our farmers, by building affordable housing and taking on rural poverty. That’s how we leave no one behind.
Amy Klobuchar
There is no fool like a careless gambler who starts taking victory for granted.
Hunter S. Thompson
I just say ‘Amen’ a lot. It’s just about being grateful and never taking things for granted.
Rich Brian
And the two planes that were taking the band and crew that we had taken out to San Diego were flying out after the show. And so I was never supposed to be on that plane.
Reba McEntire
Happiness is actually found in simple things, such as taking my nephew around the island by bicycle or seeing the stars at night. We go to coffee shops or see airplanes land at the airport.
Andrea Hirata
On Earth, men and women are taking the same risks. Why shouldn’t we be taking the same risks in space?
Valentina Tereshkova
But I think Prozac is a lethal drug, I’ve several friends just haven’t made it by taking Prozac.
Bob Geldof
I’d been taking things apart and inventing things since I was a little kid… I still have memories as a child trying to really understand how things work.
Martin Cooper
The directing of a picture involves coming out of your individual loneliness and taking a controlling part in putting together a small world. A picture is made. You put a frame around it and move on. And one day you die. That is all there is to it.
John Huston
The conquest of the earth, which mostly means the taking it away from those who have a different complexion or slightly flatter noses than ourselves, is not a pretty thing when you look into it too much.
Joseph Conrad
I don’t regret the decision to retire. My body was losing its edge. I was taking longer to recover from injuries. You have to get out at some point.
David Beckham
I was a fugitive, taking risks with my life. I chose that. I chose to be a volunteer to go to Guatemala when they were having their earthquake, to help people with a team of doctors.
Abbie Hoffman
Games are all about taking risks.
James Altucher
I’m not afraid of computers taking over the world.
Thom Yorke
What a brutish master sin is, taking the joy from one’s life, stealing money and health, giving promise of tomorrow’s pleasures, and finally leading one onto the rotten planking that overlies the mouth of the pit.
Jim Elliot
Growing up, I was surrounded by many great men in my life. I watched them and learned, taking it in like a sponge.
Greg Vaughan
All of us take offense to anyone who reaps the rewards of living in America without taking on the responsibilities of living in America. And undocumented immigrants who desperately want to embrace those responsibilities see little option but to remain in the shadows, or risk their families being torn apart.
Barack Obama
I had no expectations about fatherhood, really, but it’s definitely a journey I’m glad to be taking. Number one, it’s a great learning experience. When my mother told me it’s a 24/7 job, she wasn’t kidding.
Christopher Meloni
There’s no taking trout with dry breeches.
Miguel de Cervantes
Being a photographer is like listening to music. If you have a camera, by just living your life you’re bound to find some things that are worth taking a picture of. You don’t have to be an audiophile to have taste in music. It happens through osmosis.
Christine Elise
I’m used to taking risks – my career was a risk. Being a stand-up comic is not something that’s normally accepted when your mother is Filipino.
Jo Koy
Humor and laughter – not necessarily derogatory derision – are my pet tools. This may come from my general philosophy of never taking the world too seriously – for fear of dying of boredom.
Marcel Duchamp
If I ever have to stop taking the subway, I’m gonna have a heart attack.
Edward Norton
The flower has opened, has been in the sun and is unafraid. I’m taking more chances; I’m bold and proud.
Paula Cole
In terms of weapons, the best disarmament tool so far is nuclear energy. We have been taking down the Russian warheads, turning it into electricity. 10 percent of American electricity comes from decommissioned warheads.
Stewart Brand
I think a woman’s body is so much more sensual than a man’s. I’m not saying strip off all your clothes, but there are certain photos I like people taking of me, where I’m comfortable. As long as it’s tasteful, why not?
Lindsay Lohan
I just trust the director and never overanalyse the script, screenplay, etc. You are just taking a bet at the end of the day, so confidence, be it on the filmmaker or the script, is all that counts.
Ravi Teja
Death frames the high wire. But I don’t see myself as taking risks. I do all of the preparations that a non-death seeker would do.
Philippe Petit
My death, taking the light from my eyes, gives back to the day the purity which they soiled.
Jean Racine
I collect records. And cats. I don’t have any cats right now. But if I’m taking a walk and I see a cat, I’m happy.
Haruki Murakami
If I took the 40 years of my dad talking to me about war and battles and taking me to battlefields and distilled it down into one question, it would probably be the idea of the necessary or unnecessary war.
Suzanne Collins
I just grew up watching a lot of movies. I’m attracted to this genre and that genre, this type of story, and that type of story. As I watch movies I make some version of it in my head that isn’t quite what I’m seeing – taking the things I like and mixing them with stuff I’ve never seen before.
Quentin Tarantino
I can do an hour-long speech about Democrats taking African Americans for granted, and I’d have a line behind me of very prominent African-Americans who would say, ‘Amen.’
Emanuel Cleaver
Sometimes I feel an obligation to be accessible as a personality, but for me the driving force since the beginning has always been good work, taking risks, trying new things. If the door opens, go through it. Always go forwards.
David Soul
The show is not so clean cut in terms of good and bad. That is the theme that runs through the show. Loki is taking down the TVA, but is it the right decision?
Kate Herron
I was a very protected and confused kid till 24. It was after then, that I started taking my life seriously.
Siddharth Shukla
We are always in a state of flux, and taking risks is important.
Caroline Polachek
I should like to know if, taking this old Declaration of Independence, which declares that all men are equal upon principle, you begin making exceptions to it, where will you stop? If one man says it does not mean a Negro, why not another say it does not mean some other man?
Abraham Lincoln
If Kanye was not in the equation, I literally wouldn’t even be here. His music pushed hip-hop – the man is a master at taking a complex idea and presenting it in a way that is accessible for everyone.
JPEGMAFIA
‘Gonzo’ means taking an unknown thing to an unknown place for a known purpose. But sometimes we’re lost in an unknown place for no known purpose.
Jerry Jeff Walker
When I had a full-time job, I would write dialogue and sketch characters on my commute and during meetings. Now, I forsake showers and regular meals and stay at my desk for hours, taking breaks to drink tea and eat something sweet, usually cake.
Ayobami Adebayo
I’ve been taking a trapeze class for the last couple of years. I’m working on my double back flip right now.
Neil Patrick Harris
Oh, to me not drinking is like being dead, almost. I sit here taking endless journeys down memory lane. It gets boring.
Jeffrey Bernard
The elderly are all someone’s flesh and blood and we cannot just shut them in a cupboard and hand over the responsibility for taking care of them to the state.
Simon Callow
People aren’t taking their time with the music no more. There’s less quality in the records.
Astro
We are committed to supporting the economic growth of India and this includes providing a resource to local partners and taking ‘Made in India’ products global.
Doug McMillon
I want to provoke people with thoughts, not by taking my clothes off. It’s time to move on from Stripperville.
Marina and the Diamonds
Taking bold action on climate change simply makes good business sense. It’s also the right thing to do for people and the planet. Setting a net-zero GHG emissions target by 2050 will drive innovation, grow jobs, build prosperity, and secure a better world for what will soon be 9 billion people.
Richard Branson
I have great respect for the LDS church – their commitment to family and taking care of each other is exemplary. I just don’t believe the tenets of the faith that they believe.
Kyrsten Sinema
Madam Walker was a master marketer. But her brilliance was in taking it to another level by training women, by traveling, by making very motivational speeches and by providing independent income for women who otherwise would have to be maids and sharecroppers.
A’Lelia Bundles
From the U.S. point of view, negotiations are, in effect, a way for Israel to continue its policies of systematically taking over whatever it wants in the West Bank, maintaining the brutal siege on Gaza, separating Gaza from the West Bank and, of course, occupying the Syrian Golan heights, all with full U.S. support.
Noam Chomsky
We Americans love original ideas. But truly, there are already plenty of good ones out there, ours for the taking. If I were too proud to copy the ideas of others, I likely wouldn’t have even a fraction of my current success.
Mohnish Pabrai
The artwork on my packaging was something I painstakingly micro-managed – for example, I treat it like a tattoo, taking into consideration the muscle structure and seeing were the line lands on the existing body.
Kat Von D
I started taking piano lessons from the age of six years old. It’s such an essential part of what I do in the production process. I wouldn’t be Kygo today without those piano lessons.
Kygo
There’s so much to appreciate about my life every single day, and I make a big point of taking time to smell the roses and noticing how lucky I am. I never want to take that for granted.
Josie Maran
We are taking the steps necessary to be ready to send whatever assistance is requested of us, and we are preparing to receive citizens who seek refuge in our state.
Jennifer Granholm
I have always loved taking pictures. When I was young, I would carry a small camera with me on the sets.
Waheeda Rehman
I learned a great lesson from my mother on her deathbed. She counseled me on the importance of taking care of myself so I wouldn’t end up in an unhealthy body like she did.
Marie Osmond
I really enjoy taking an outdoor shower.
David Duchovny
I learned that you don’t take dishes from the table to the dishwasher; you have to rinse them first. I think that’s stupid because I don’t go out in the back yard and hose off before taking a shower.
Bill Engvall
Humor is the instinct for taking pain playfully.
Max Eastman
They were taking pictures and everything. When we got down off the plane, the minute Elvis made his appearance at the door of the plane, the screaming got even worse.
Minnie Pearl
I definitely look up to Rihanna. She doesn’t care what anyone thinks of her, and she’s not afraid of taking risks and trying different things, whether it’s fashion or music. She’s all about what makes her comfortable.
Justine Skye
Taking legal action against pirates is a headache for artists like me.
Ilaiyaraaja
To dance is to be out of yourself. Larger, more beautiful, more powerful. This is power, it is glory on earth and it is yours for the taking.
Agnes de Mille
A lot of people are focused on taking over the world or doing the biggest thing and getting the most users. I think part of making a difference and doing something cool is focusing intensely.
Mark Zuckerberg
I am always wary of decisions made hastily. I am always wary of the first decision, that is, the first thing that comes to my mind if I have to make a decision. This is usually the wrong thing. I have to wait and assess, looking deep into myself, taking the necessary time.
Pope Francis
Courage is almost a contradiction in terms. It means a strong desire to live taking the form of readiness to die.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
I feel like we have to keep our eyes on the road. Being nostalgic is like taking an offramp and getting a sandwich – and then you get back on the highway. I don’t want to be spending the rest of my life at the gas station.
Eddie Vedder
The idea behind reinforcement learning is you don’t necessarily know the actions you might take, so you explore the sequence of actions you should take by taking one that you think is a good idea and then observing how the world reacts. Like in a board game where you can react to how your opponent plays.
Jeff Dean
Life is an affirmation, not a defamation. Life means living. Life means taking that one tiny or giant leap beyond what you know you can do, or simply beyond what you know. It is in these moments that we live.
Rick Tumlinson
I look forward to pushing the boundaries of my craft and taking new chances.
Tahir Raj Bhasin
With ‘Badhaai Ho,’ the lines are so quirky and the situation is so humorous, awkward, and bizarre that people are taking away a lot from the film. The dialogues are amazing. We aren’t trying to make people laugh, but the situation is like that, that people are laughing.
Ayushmann Khurrana
Life is a series of steps. Things are done gradually. Once in a while there is a giant step, but most of the time we are taking small, seemingly insignificant steps on the stairway of life.
Ralph Ransom
CGI has fully ruined car crashes. Because how can you be impressed with them now? When you watch them in the ’70s, it was real cars, real metal, real blasts. They’re really doing it and risking their lives. But I knew CGI was gonna start taking over.
Quentin Tarantino
‘Feminist comedy,’ practically an oxymoron, had a couple of good years after WWII. Chalk it up to the forced female autonomy that occurred during wartime, when Rosie the Riveter went to work in the factories, constructing the Allies’ war machines while taking charge of the finances, the home, and the children.
Grace Slick
You shouldn’t feel guilty about taking time for yourself. Every so often, everyone needs to give themselves a big ol’ bear hug and treat themselves to some TLC.
Sean Covey
I guess you’d call me an independent, since I’ve never identified myself with one party or another in politics. I always decide my vote by taking as careful a look as I can at the actual candidates and issues themselves, no matter what the party label.
Jackie Robinson
Becoming a coach has to be in your blood. There are hundreds and thousands of former athletes out there, but there are maybe only 10 people who want to dedicate their lives by taking on a job as a coach. Not only a master, a coach should also be a brother or sister to his apprentices.
Joe Taslim
It’s high time for a fresh European alternative to enter the market, taking the existing Internet behemoths head on. What the world needs now is a cloud storage service that is not subject to uncontrolled access by intelligence agencies.
Mikko Hypponen
The two important things I did learn were that you are as powerful and strong as you allow yourself to be, and that the most difficult part of any endeavor is taking the first step, making the first decision.
Robyn Davidson
I thought, ‘I have ideas. I’m creative.’ I just didn’t see why I should be pigeon-holing myself in the business world or staying in corporate America when I already knew that I was capable of taking risks.
Payal Kadakia
Once I was in my last year of law school, I started doing plays, as I said, without taking the bar. And I got hooked. I did a play called ‘Marat/Sade’, and I never had so much fun in my life.
William Sanderson
My iPhone has changed my life – I spend hours taking photos of the sidewalk as I walk down the street. I like the casualness, that it’s low-resolution.
Kiki Smith
I always tell people that this is a really simple deal: Work hard. If you work hard, follow what’s required and set your priorities right, then you can really perform without taking shortcuts. If you’re taking shortcuts, you can’t be free.
Eliud Kipchoge
Taking ownership of your feelings is so vital to getting better.
Lili Reinhart
I’m not a risk-taker; that’s probably why I write – because when you’re easily bored, but you don’t like taking risks, you end up doing it all in your head.
Catherine Jinks
The basic idea of Games With a Purpose is that we are taking a problem that computers cannot yet solve, and we are getting people to solve it for us while they are playing a game.
Luis von Ahn
My day goes by coordinating things like transport for migrant workers, taking government permissions, organizing food among other things. And I feel very happy and satisfied. If I was shooting, I wouldn’t have had all the time in the world. Now, that I have all the time, it is important to give that to the needy.
Sonu Sood
A typical Ponzi scheme involves taking money from investors, then paying them off with money taken from new investors, rather than paying them from actual earnings.
Amy Goodman
Michael is a gift from Allah, and he is taking him back. The world didn’t appreciate him.
Jermaine Jackson
Rich people never go to war. You ask a college kid to go to war, and he’s like, ‘Umm, I’m taking this sociology class, and I think war is, like, really stupid, and my roommate’s, like, half Afghani, so it’s going to cause some static.’
Bill Burr
Strengthening the system and spirit of cooperative federalism, my government is taking the states along to achieve national goals.
Ram Nath Kovind
Remember, you and you alone are responsible for maintaining your energy. Give up blaming, complaining and excuse making, and keep taking action in the direction of your goals – however mundane or lofty they may be.
Jack Canfield
In ninth grade, I came up with a new form of rebellion. I hadn’t been getting good grades, but I decided to get all A’s without taking a book home. I didn’t go to math class, because I knew enough and had read ahead, and I placed within the top 10 people in the nation on an aptitude exam.
Bill Gates
I just got tired of waiting for things to happen through other people when so many other people are taking chances on following their dreams.
Christina Milian
It’s very easy for a church just to slide along from week to week, taking it for granted that we do our services like this and that, and we celebrate the sacraments like this and that.
N. T. Wright
The thing about taking risks is, if it’s really a risk, you really can fail. It’s only a pretend risk if you really can’t fail.
Connie Britton
Humans are nervous, touchy creatures and can be easily offended. Many are deeply insecure. They become focused and energized by taking offence; it makes them feel meaningful and alive.
Michael Leunig
There’s a real danger in trying to stay king of the mountain. You stop taking risks, you stop being as creative, because you’re trying to maintain a position. Apart from anything else that really takes the fun out of it.
Sissy Spacek
In taking Dell private, we plan to go back to our roots, focusing on the entrepreneurial spirit that made Dell one of the fastest-growing and most successful companies in history.
Michael Dell
Being in the public eye is part of what I do, and taking on a multitude of different projects – television, radio, fashion, writing or deep-sea diving – is a blessing. It is also how I pay my bills and fund my own skating, as I don’t have a sponsor or financial help from my federation.
Johnny Weir
We lived together as kids, and now we’re taking care of each other as men.
Aaron Neville
Once you get a spice in your home, you have it forever. Women never throw out spices. The Egyptians were buried with their spices. I know which one I’m taking with me when I go.
Erma Bombeck
It’s human nature to start taking things for granted again when danger isn’t banging loudly on the door.
David Hackworth
I don’t feel we did wrong in taking this great country away from them. There were great numbers of people who needed new land, and the Indians were selfishly trying to keep it for themselves.
John Wayne
I haven’t took no punishment. There’s nothing cool about taking punishment.
Floyd Mayweather, Jr.
One of my favorite things to do is cook. I love taking the time to plan and prepare meals. I try to use all organic ingredients and make everything from scratch.
Marisa Miller
So I grew up in a very book-friendly environment and my education as a writer was reading. I think that’s the best education. Reading, and taking from the people I admired.
Seth Grahame-Smith
Taking care of children has nothing to do with politics. I think perhaps with time, instead of there being a politicization of humanitarian aid, there will be a humanization of politics.
Audrey Hepburn
I just love taking pictures.
Ren Ng
Stone Temple Pilots, Bush, and Silverchair are taking the simplest elements of Soundgarden, Nirvana, and Pearl Jam and melding them into one homogenous thing.
Chris Cornell
I’m taking a lot of my favorite artists, different people, my favorite music and marrying that with what I do as a comic. It’s very collaborative, arty, fun and cool.
Margaret Cho
I am not suggesting that just by taking the Metro, I will save billions. But I hope others will follow.
Veerappa Moily
It was the king’s army, the king’s people, the king’s taxes; and he who questioned the propriety of the royal prerogative of taking from his people without return or accounting, was reckoned, and felt himself to be, a criminal, guilty of the highest crime of disloyalty.
John Buchanan Robinson
I often find myself writing about people taking care of each other, or trying to.
Kenneth Lonergan
I am not getting any younger and am taking a new approach to life.
Alfre Woodard
I’m constantly taking my own blood pressure.
Erica Durance
Working with David Lynch was like taking a bullet. A gun at you. ‘Lost Highway’ is, I think, one of the best films I’ve ever been in. It’ll endure a long, long time.
Robert Loggia
Moving between the legs of tables and of chairs, rising or falling, grasping at kisses and toys, advancing boldly, sudden to take alarm, retreating to the corner of arm and knee, eager to be reassured, taking pleasure in the fragrant brilliance of the Christmas tree.
T. S. Eliot
I invented my life by taking for granted that everything I did not like would have an opposite, which I would like.
Coco Chanel
Police officers know that each time they put on their uniform, they are taking on risks to protect others.
Mike Parson
Everything is changing. People are taking their comedians seriously and the politicians as a joke.
Will Rogers
We live in a world where there are many risks, and it’s high time we start taking seriously which ones we should be worried about.
Lisa Randall
When you play it too safe, you’re taking the biggest risk of your life. Time is the only wealth we’re given.
Barbara Sher
The one important thing I have learned over the years is the difference between taking one’s work seriously and taking one’s self seriously. The first is imperative and the second is disastrous.
Margot Fonteyn
Even though wrestling is getting more popular – wrestling being more popular than it was five years ago is like being the nicest guy in prison, it’s not a huge compliment, but it’s still taking place.
Jim Cornette
American artists, Americans in general, don’t take the U.K. rap scene too seriously, yeah, but thing is though, they wasn’t taking Canadian artists that seriously either. And now we have Bieber, The Weeknd, Tory Lanez, Drake – massive, massive Canadian artists.
AJ Tracey
There are certain ways in which I cultivate awareness, both through mindful yoga and taking care of my body and taking time to actually drop as deeply as possible into stillness, into whatever is unfolding in the present moment.
Jon Kabat-Zinn
In regards to being a fashion aficionado, there’s a certain amount of taking yourself seriously in the professional world. The self-effacing person can’t completely go down the serious road. But I design, and love when things are beautiful.
St. Vincent
If your best players are taking a shortcut, they’re going to have problems holding everyone else accountable and responsible.
B. J. Armstrong
We’re really trying to make movies for TV. Producers and writers are taking risks that they weren’t in the past.
Philip Winchester
Chinese artists have been subversive over thousands of years, taking what they think of the government and embedding it in their art. There might be censorship of not going as far as they might.
Amy Tan
I believe in taking chances and living your life. Sometimes doors open and others close and you have to figure out which one you’re going to take. I’m always for the one that’s challenging.
Gisele Bundchen
I’ve always been a big fan of taking old songs and completely turning them on their head. Having no adherence to the fine tradition of the original version. Rearranging them and taking a different approach to them.
Joe Bonamassa
Over the course of my life, I have made many transitions – most of them taking me further away from my Somali roots and steadily toward the enlightened mentality of Western democracy.
Ayaan Hirsi Ali
Our music’s kind of about taking something ugly and making it beautiful.
Jerry Cantrell
I’m heartened that, for the first time, we’re seeing some of the Internet Service Providers and the social media sites taking action against the Islamic State. That’s the kind of initiative that can very, very much augment on an industrial scale what the government is trying to do.
David Petraeus
I think every individual has his or her own power, and it’s a matter of working, taking time and defining what that power is.
Jill Scott
I’ll never feel comfortable taking a strong drink, and I’ll never feel easy smoking a cigarette. I just don’t think those things are right for me.
Elvis Presley
I like Jacques Derrida; I think he’s funny. I like my philosophy with a few jokes and puns. I know that that offends other philosophers; they think he’s not taking things seriously, but he comes up with some marvellous puns. Why shouldn’t you have a bit of fun while dealing with the deepest issues of the mind?
Alan Moore
I lose anywhere up to 20 pounds on location with adventurers like Conrad Anker or Brady Robinson. So I need to replace that lost weight and muscle by training hard when I am back in the States between jobs. And as I get older, it is far more important for me to be doing this and taking my conditioning seriously.
Jimmy Chin
When you go out on a football field, you are responsible for taking care of yourself. The more rules you get, the less players truly take care of themselves.
Jim Brown
There is an important message that all political leaders should be taking from the response to coronavirus, and that is that people are prepared to make hard choices for the common good.
Caroline Lucas
Ultimately, if you can say that I’m a bad owner and we’re winning championships, I can live with that. But if we’re not making the playoffs and we’re spending and losing money, then I have to look in the mirror and say maybe I’m not taking the necessary steps to doing what it takes to run an organization.
Michael Jordan
As long as Rupert Murdoch has owned it, the ‘New York Post’ has been defined by its shamelessness and total lack of interest in taking responsibility for its worst errors and poor judgment.
Alex Pareene
Obviously, exercise is an important part of my life, and I think taking care of yourself is an important part of every individual’s health care.
Aaron Schock
The essence of leadership is essentially taking the responsibility of trying to interpret the future to the present.
Paul Keating
Getting information off the Internet is like taking a drink from a fire hydrant.
Mitch Kapor
Love begins by taking care of the closest ones – the ones at home.
Mother Teresa
Generosity is giving more than you can, and pride is taking less than you need.
Khalil Gibran
You always get things that teach you and steps to grow, but there is a confidence that is gained and a deep understanding of what it means to be supported by your knowledge – not by some team that is there to create confidence; it is there within you. That takes time. That takes teachers. That takes taking risks.
Sharon Lawrence
When you revolutionize education, you’re taking the very mechanism of how people be smarter and do new things, and you’re priming the pump for so many incredible things.
Bill Gates
My kids are soccer buffs. I have spent exorbitantly and unreasonably on taking them to soccer matches in England.
Aishwarya R. Dhanush
As a mountain walker, one of the most frustrating mistakes one can make in bad weather is taking the wrong route down.
Dominic Grieve
Greatness comes by doing a few small and smart things each and every day. Comes from taking little steps, consistently. Comes from a making a few small chips against everything in your professional and personal life that is ordinary, so that a day eventually arrives when all that’s left is The Extraordinary.
Robin S. Sharma
My mates send me pictures every single night on the Whatsapp group taking the mick out of me. It’s banter, it is what it is. It doesn’t bother me.
Phil Jones
Poetry is a way of taking life by the throat.
Robert Frost
How often it consoles me to think of barbarism once more flooding the world, and real feelings and passions, however rudimentary, taking the place of our wretched hypocrisies.
William Morris
Indians can identify with the Indian sensibilities, and rather than taking something from foreign films, it is always good to make a movie which has been enjoyed by a certain audience or in a certain part of India and make it available to a larger audience.
Asin
Fusion fashion – that’s what I’m inspired by, taking all these different cultures and then trying to put it together that a girl here would love to wear.
Hannah Simone
You know, master classes are essentially extended Q&As. That’s how I always approach them. I don’t mean to downplay it. It’s just that I never fancy myself as someone who is taking a class. ‘Master class’ insinuates a teacher, and I’m not one.
Sean Baker
I was silent as a child, and silenced as a young woman; I am taking my lumps and bumps for being a big mouth, now, but usually from those whose opinion I don’t respect.
Sandra Cisneros
Before taking up law, I studied medicine for six months and then tried my hand at fashion designing for another six months. I wanted to find something that excited me. Finally, it was law that captured my interest.
Mawra Hocane
There is no morality by instinct. There is no social salvation in the end without taking thought; without mastery of logic and application of logic to human experience.
Katharine Elizabeth Fullerton Gerould
Thank God I have parents who’d support the crazy things I did. If my dad found a snake, I’d take it to the woods. I was always taking these homeless birds and homeless cats home.
Ashlan Gorse Cousteau
If we can but prevent the government from wasting the labours of the people, under the pretence of taking care of them, they must become happy.
Thomas Jefferson
Now is the time for all Alaskans to come together and reach out with our core message of taking power from the federal government and bringing it back home to the people.
Joe Miller
It’s interesting when you’re old enough to take a new, objective approach looking at your parents, frame them in a way where you are actually taking yourself out of the equation and just look at the things that are true about their life.
Robert Downey, Jr.
A lot of the work in, say, construction or restaurants involves visual and motor flexibility. It also requires adaptability, in terms of answering questions, giving people directions, or taking orders.
David Autor
I prefer to be alive, so I’m cautious about taking risks.
Werner Herzog
I am honoured to be taking part in the Diamond Jubilee flotilla along the Thames in my 20-foot rowing boat. The energy levels will be high, partly because I’m planning to ply the crew with thermos flasks filled with Typhoo!
Ben Fogle
Fortunately for India, it has got a growing economy. If it is doing the right things with taxation and focusing on the right areas for human development, it is going to have no problem, over a period of time, taking care of its own needs.
Bill Gates
What the canons of beauty transmit is an idea of taking care of yourself. Eating well, living healthily, doing sports. It’s a way to highlight the natural beauty in each of us. The natural body that all of us are born with.
Bianca Balti
Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Self-care is really about taking care of you and focusing on feeling good about yourself – mind and body.
Franchesca Ramsey
All the aggressive actions I do to myself I would never dream of doing in my own life – I am not this kind of person. I cry if I cut myself peeling potatoes. I am taking the plane, there is turbulence, I am shaking. In performance, I become, somehow, like not a mortal.
Marina Abramovic
I was in uniform for four years, and I know that heroism doesn’t occur from taking orders, but rather from people who through their own willpower and strength are willing to sacrifice their lives for an idea.
Thor Heyerdahl
The one regret I have about my own abortions is that they cost money that might otherwise have been spent on something more pleasurable, like taking the kids to movies and theme parks.
Barbara Ehrenreich
I enjoy catching our show whenever I can. It does get very weird to watch myself, it’s always been that way, but at the same time, it’s part of my job to see what kind of job I’m doing and to get a perspective on where I’m taking the character.
James Lafferty
Taking care of your employees is extremely important and very, very visible.
Larry Ellison
I’m taking special treatments for the cancer in my brain and in my liver. Part of the liver was removed, and they did the treatment on four places in my brain with radiation. And now I’m taking a long-term medicine that stimulates my own immune system to fight against cancer.
Jimmy Carter
Pakistan will never be able to match the Indian militarily, and the effort to do so is taking an immense toll on the society.
Noam Chomsky
What excites me is just taking some time to breathe in life. The mundane is very exciting.
Viola Davis
Sometimes we make the process more complicated than we need to. We will never make a journey of a thousand miles by fretting about how long it will take or how hard it will be. We make the journey by taking each day step by step and then repeating it again and again until we reach our destination.
Joseph B. Wirthlin
I’m in love with love, so I’m always taking risks! I think it’s part of love, taking risks.
Melanie Laurent
If a patient is cold, if a patient is feverish, if a patient is faint, if he is sick after taking food, if he has a bed-sore, it is generally the fault not of the disease, but of the nursing.
Florence Nightingale
Tweets? That stuff kills conversation. And people taking pictures with their phone or recording you, sometimes surreptitiously, is creepy. They come up and just start talking to you, and you can see the red light on their phone.
Robin Williams
It is easy to sit up and take notice, What is difficult is getting up and taking action.
Honore de Balzac
At the moment of death, when the seed atom in the heart is ruptured, which contains all the experience of the past life in a panoramic picture, the spirit leaves its physical body, taking with it the finer bodies.
Max Heindel
I wanted to be what my high-school civics and history teacher thought of as a good American. That automatically involved taking an interest in government.
Olivia De Havilland
Business is all about risk taking and managing uncertainties and turbulence.
Gautam Adani
If it’s a beautiful day, I love taking walks. The walks are always aimless.
Pete Hamill
My dreams of taking the West End by storm as a dancer flickered but then faded; my father’s ambition to see me in a steady office job was tried and abandoned. But I had won a national speaking award, had stood for election to the local council, had begun to travel and took a job working for the Labour Party.
Betty Boothroyd
I remember taking my demo to every dance person in London. People were like, ‘We don’t know what this is!’ The first people to champion me were a club in Manchester.
M.I.A.
Entrepreneurism is simply taking nothing, applying talent, brains, financial creativity and hustle, and turning that into something.
Brock Pierce
Nobody ever lost money taking a profit.
Bernard Baruch
I won’t do advertising if they bring a layout and say, ‘This is what we want to do,’ because anybody can do that; it’s not interesting. They’ve got digital and the computer; it’s not taking pictures, it’s not magic – it’s a picture done by committee.
David Bailey
You know what, rip me off once, shame on me. But twice? I’m coming after you and taking back what’s mine.
Billy Mays
I have pushed the boat out as far as I should in terms of taking on too many things. I’m getting older and I just could not take it any more. I am now monitoring myself very closely and I’m just trying not to get into that sort of state again.
Stephen Fry
I love the gallery, the arena of representation. It’s a commercial world, and morality is based generally around economics, and that’s taking place in the art gallery.
Jeff Koons
While some sit on the sidelines and fail to offer any practical solutions to address high gas prices now, the House is once again taking action to meet the energy needs of the American people.
Dave Reichert
It’s not an anti-sex trip. Like, we’re taking sex, which is probably another half of American entertainment, sex and violence, and we’re projecting it, and we’re saying this is the way everything is right now.
Alice Cooper
I have said that I am in favor of personhood as a concept. I am not taking a position on any of the state amendments, and I have said over and over again – and it has been reported over and over again – that I am not in favor of banning any common forms of birth control in Colorado or in the United States.
Ken Buck
My motto is more, ‘If you want to find something new, look for something new!’ There is a certain amount of risk in this attitude, as even the slightest failure tends to be resounding, but you are so happy when you succeed that it is worth taking the risk.
Yves Chauvin
The biggest risk is not taking any risk… In a world that is changing really quickly, the only strategy that is guaranteed to fail is not taking risks.
Mark Zuckerberg
When I was in fifth grade, there were many girls who were good at math, but when I was in junior high school, I was taking intermediate algebra and I looked around the class and realized I was the only girl.
Judith Love Cohen
The public/private partnerships are taking various forms in India. It is individuals who are socially oriented are setting up schools. They’re setting up colleges. They’re setting up universities. They’re setting up primary-education schools in the villages, particularly the villages their original families came from.
Azim Premji
Jokes apart, people are constantly asking me, ‘What are you doing for the industry?’ When one makes a blockbuster, you plough back money into the industry. If my film makes 100 crore, I’m not taking the entire sum home! It gets distributed between the exhibitors, distributors, producers and actors.
Rohit Shetty
The United States has held out against taking part in any of the world consensus that there should be a court of human rights or that there should be an international court of criminal justice.
Roger Waters
Part of growing up is just taking what you learn from that and moving on and not taking it to heart.
Beverley Mitchell
Taking risks gives me energy.
Jay Chiat
I do think taking the 20s to take the most chances you can is important, because you’re not going to hurt anyone else during that time. And if you do have a partner, you need a couple years to rehearse that relationship.
Gail Sheehy
At the same time, new concepts and abstractions flow into the picture, taking up the task of describing the universe without reference to such time or space – abstractions for which our language lacks adequate terms.
Benjamin Whorf
Rather than wringing our hands about robots taking over the world, smart organizations will embrace strategic automation use cases. Strategic decisions will be based on how the technology will free up time to do the types of tasks that humans are uniquely positioned to perform.
Clara Shih
Doug Stanhope is great – I saw his ‘Burning the Bridge to Nowhere’ show and it was inspiring. He’s like an anti-shaman, taking the sting out of a bunch of things we’ve chosen to give a symbolic power to. I’ve made it sound noble and worthy there, it’s not, it’s really funny.
Frankie Boyle
Workers and students and part-time working parents across New Mexico are taking home too little, trying to stretch dollars as far as they’ll go to pay for basic necessities.
Michelle Lujan Grisham
Like anything else, acting can become boring – a chore, really – if there isn’t any challenge. And I like taking challenges. Just when people think they have me figured out, I like to surprise them.
Laura Dern
World music is about taking things from different places and bringing them together – which is great.
Youssou N’Dour
